Cool Places + internet edition +

301 Name: Anonymous : 2018-09-19 05:48
Two imageboards I frequent:

https://kohlchan.net/int
https://ernstchan.xyz/int

The former is the spiritual successor to Krautchan, though it's a mix between high quality posts, funposts and shitposts. The latter is heavily moderated and slower, but on average has higher quality posts.

I get banter vibes from it rather than poopflinging ones.
The former always, and I do mean always, leads to the latter.

You are absolutely right friend.

So, I searched all of the open internet (not including closed discussions in facebook, whatsapp groups) to find people who seem to really care about nature and relationship with it and fellow human beings.

I couldn't seem to find it. All of the discussions were mostly about superficial things including technology, entertainments, politics which had no significance to our daily life and relationship with each other - either in real life or on the internet. So, it is natural that we all feel terribly disconnected from the vast reality of nature and humanity as a whole.

So, I recently made this site where we could have authentic, mature conversation about all things involved in living, human relationship and conflicts, nature and it's significance in everyday life, farming, plants and trees, permaculture and all things which we all share in this beautiful earth.

I feel humanity is in a crisis wnich needs authentic response, in which all of us come together without ideologies and plans.

https://naturalpeople.wiki/communicate/

Please do have a look. The site takes a serious approach but it does not mean we cannot have fun.

It's an early Japanese textboard that used dark green palette. Bus Stop has a color theme based on that too.

It was an interesting read on the fringe beginnings on Anonymous culture as we know it. I think the problem is still same where things get too absurd after a point and the site is forced to shut down. That is why I ensure to not hate and misbehave in general over the internet or I am contributing to the absurdity of it all.

"Misbehaving" and "hate" had nothing to do with the closing of those boards, though. Both Shiba and Amezou shut down their boards because of serious personal threats from actual insane people.

What everything else? I think the original strangeworld only used that dark green and white colors. Some later successors also had additional brighter green shades for headers and links, I generated the palette from the screenshot of one of those.

There really were SOME successors that had brighter green headers, but it wasn't the standard. You got the background color (#004040) and the text color (#FFF) right, but the links usually had a light gray color and quotes had a darker gray.

Been lurking there for months and thinking of joining in, but I haven't decided what character to "post as" yet. The ones I like most don't have enough art available or are already claimed, plus I want something that fits the general feel of the place. Possibly I'm overthinking this, heh.

The "claimed character" thing is the worst, and gets horribly uncomfy when someone makes the mistake of posting a picture of lain when someone else has already "claimed" her.

I do like the site, and would go there more, but it is only open during times that I either sleep, or is just about finished with work.

It's been a hot mintute, but I used to hang out on /tea/. I never avatared and never felt like it was necessary. The reason I never really got into it was the live updating. When you can link to posts both older and newer than yours, it can get hard to follow a conversation.

One thing I don't like about the live chans is that you can't go back and edit what you type. After a few seconds what you type becomes "locked in" which I absolutely hate since my first typings are never coherent and I have to go back and revise.

the liveboard doesn't update your post based on time, it's based on how many words you've typed, in doushio's case you can edit the last two words that you type - so if I were to type "I like cake", I would only be able to edit "like cake".

/tea/ can have some okayish discussion but I haven't really bothered to lurk it in months after just how bizarre it was to see. /magic/ can be okayish I guess but I'd rather give my posts to other boards to stay alive, as /tea/ is generally regarded as a "good" website so it usually doesn't have a shortage of posters trying to fit in.

359 Name: Anonymous : 2019-07-09 07:31
This is a nice discussion. An imageboard and a textboard I was considering recommending have already been recommended, so I'm going to only recommend my website:

http://verisimilitudes.net/

It's non-interactive. I wanted to have a single form for commenting, but I don't want to configure a typical HTTP server and don't have a Lisp HTTP server set up yet, so all commenting requires emailing me, currently.

I enjoyed seeing Gopher discussed here, as the domain also features a Gopher hole. I also have an RSS feed and a Finger service; I also host the email service myself. I'm glad to have several protocols under this single domain, as opposed to adding third-level domain names, as that's what ports are for. I'm planning on having more protocols available, such as Bittorrent and FTP.

I won't delve into much detail, but I seem to only be comfortable in this manner of forum, with anonymity being the main quality; I'm not anonymous in posting this, but I didn't need to make an account, this discussion has lasted years instead of days, and so many other things combine to make this style of forum the only one I feel comfortable in, presently. Everything else seems so queer and alien. I've considered installing a GNU Social or Pleroma to add to this, but I'm not certain I like the idea; so much of this social media seems vapid and pointless; I like my Finger service more. I don't want to write too long of a post about this, however. Feel free to tell me what you think.

That's all.

Found this site (ykkaria then) on 4chan when it was still fun to visit. The only other board I visit with some regularity now is bbspink. Lo and fucking behold however, here it can only be accessed with a vpn now, thanks to the little German bureaucrats in Brüssel who have this veritable talent for ruining even the most unlikely bits of enjoyment still left.

Spacechan and a couple other websites started a webring because some 8chan refugees did aswell, there was a discord leak after the /cow/ admin played along that showed they wanted to "destroy" other imageboards and gain a bigger userbase. A lot of their shit is explained here: https://kissu.moe/qa/res/4165#9474 and is pretty much a non-issue now due to either moderation or because everyone knows about their discord faggotry and wants nothing to do with any of those sites.
