What other Chan sites do you use? I'm only using uboachan, lainchan and /lit/ on 4chan at the moment.

Uboachan, sushi, I sometimes go to lain and see if anything good pops up, same with tohno. I occasionally visit krautchan and I used to check wizchan but the place's beyound salvation aready.

Once a 4channer, always a 4channer. Tho I hardly ever actually go there anymore. /g/ & /trv/ are my jams. /vr/ sometimes tho the level of snobbery in there usually has me leaving right quick. Usedta browse so many more boards, but over time they went from good, to humorous, to simply irritating. I miss old /x/.

Beyond that I've stopped off at 420chan occasionally and 7898chan before its namechange. I've also poked around in futaba because know your roots etc.

A more friendly site for channer hobbyists. 4chans hobby oriented boards will usually rip beginners apart unlike other sites, but those sites are for faggots anyway. The original site was shut down, so this is the continuation with an active admin, but small user community.

As of now, it's a free for all where we mostly post music and write small blogs. So anyone whose beginning a hobby could get a spotlight here, maybe.

I use less and less of the chans. Lainchan is filled up with unbearable, rude and obnoxious people already as well. It just seems pointless to even try and find another place again, they always go downhill in a few years at top.

Why is being decent to others is too much to ask for?

I used mainly Karachan, as it was main chan in my country but I can't post there anymore and probably I couldn't be able to do this in quite some time. Many things have happened there through these - almost - 7 years. It has been getting worse and worse and I was feeling drained out of energy just by looking at posts full of shit recently. Or maybe I have expected help from anonymous people of internet and didn't receive it. And now I'm wandering, looking for place where I could stay longer and enjoy.

Fucked if I know. It's weird how people who spent highschool being treated as the human equivalent of insects one finds under a mat and shudders at feel the need to reproduce the same kind of circlejerky, shitty atmosphere online. I've resigned myself to groups being shit and some individuals being okay. But where do you find those?

It's funny. I can't exactly say I was ever PROUD of identifying with imageboards, but anymore I actively regret growing up on them so much. There's this self-fueling elitism and negativism to them.

Only Uboachan. Growing older I've begun to come to the conclusion that imageboards are a caustic and overall negative influence on productivity, happiness, and general outlook on life. I'm trying to quit using them and focus more on learning skills, reading books, writing in my journal, etc.

Social media and imageboards both neglect our ability to learn how to think critically and write properly, too. At least in my opinion. We're rapidly getting ourselves into a position where nobody knows how to accurately express their feelings or their thoughts.

The modern web is the noosphere, and when you're plugged into it it's like being plugged into a global consciousness (or the English-speaking portion of it) and having your head constantly filled with everyone's thoughts. Many people lose themselves in the noise and are essentially brainwashed and zombified (imageboards perhaps make this even worse by eliminating identity), becoming walking buzzword and meme dispensers. There's not enough distance between people and communities, and not enough time to think. On Twitter there isn't even enough space to express yourself properly, so a sound bite will have to do.

Social mediafication also has other bad effects like destroying your ability to concentrate and making you completely waste your time. It's easy to spend the whole day on 4chan and hard to stop doing it.

4chan is particularly toxic, and Hiro is in full-blown "fiddling while Rome burns" mode as the site sinks deeper and deeper into a vortex of increasingly unmoderated lunacy, inanity and shitposting. Having 4chan go out of business would be like plugging an oil spill. 8chan is not much better.

I think part of it is that that's what anonymous, loosely moderated imageboards offer that places like Reddit and Tumblr don't.
People engage in polite, thoughtful discussion on the latter two and then go on the chans to call other people shitdicks. I think there's a pretty good correlation between the rise in popularity of Reddit and the decrease in quality of 4chan.

It's sad, really. I will never feel at home on Reddit and I can't spend more than a couple of hours there before I start to feel nauseated with the place, but the posturing and tryharding on 4chan just kills any attempt at communication.

4chan has reached the point where anime threads on /tv/ get deleted no matter what, while /co/ threads and the usual shitposting and spam are left alone. This is fully sanctioned by the site's administration, whoever they are. Also the mods for some reason crack down super hard on "spam," i.e. saying the same thing repeatedly (which doesn't amount to much due to the cooldowns), and they do this site-wide. They otherwise completely ignore reports on all boards.

I wish the site would just go under already. Just let it end. Please. 8chan should go too.

The mod team is the absolute worst with no quality control because it's too big at this point and Hiroshimoot doesn't even care.

I was appealing a ban in irc and stuck around after it got overturned to talk with people. The conversation found its way to politics before the mod kicked everyone who didn't agree with him and then banned everyone who continued to talk when they rejoined. On top of that, the 4chan community in general has long since been flooded with edgy teenagers trying to prove that they can do le epic troll and be as hostile as possible to strangers online. It's not that I can't handle it. It's just a worn out gimmick. I'd rather just have nice conversation with people on more obscure imageboards.

8chan as well as any other infinityboard needs to die because it's reddit-core. Imageboards don't need to be flooded with as many boards as there are people. It just divides up the community a lot and then ends up in a lot of inactive boards.

That's more of the assuming that Trump is the objectively worst option that comes from leftists a lot. I genuinely feel that he's better than Hillary. While I don't like his policies, I at least like the general direction that he's trying to head in and that has nothing to do with a dislike of pc culture. Leftism supports a mentality of over-giving and compensation for people who don't deserve it. Leftism also discourages nationalism. Personally, I think Bernie would have been the perfect candidate if he was anti-illegal immigration, pro-nationalism, and advocated for less welfare for people who are capable of work. That's all hypothetical though. Where's my board, huh?

Did you not see the post I was relying to? It's obvious that the trust fund baby they were referring to is Trump. He also said that the election was a negative reaction to pc culture. Hillary was the face of pc culture. Since they're not talking about Hillary, and they mentioned somebody who was anti-pc culture and their supporters being "no-life anime dweebs", it's easy to connect the dots. The post was also negatively responding to somebody who was disturbed by the idea leftist otakus.

>How small really is the chan userbase?
I wouldn't group them all them together. Kids/Reddit and tumblr leakage probably makes up the largest amount of people who use larger boards. Next is people interested in spreading their political bs and after that other extremist freaks like incels and feminazis. There's a lot of overlap between those, but they're not necessarily the same. Regardless of what a reddit user believes, there's a much higher chance they'll be obnoxious. The second smallest minority is genuine weebs who aren't only interested in using the, "aesthetic", for their own ends. The smallest group being uncommon, specific hobbyists like trainanons. Elitist haxorfags are somewhere in the middle.

>How small really is the chan userbase?

Most smaller chans give off the impression of having <500 active users. Anything above that seems to attract shitposting and an overall decline in post quality. I've given up on browsing larger imageboards. I use the internet to relieve stress, discover new things, and to have an interesting discussion once in a while. 4chan doesn't offer that anymore, it's just an echo chamber filled with irrational hatred and devoid of rational thought.

I used to visit and post on a lot of other imageboards but lately I have been feeling less at home on them.
