A mutual from Twitter made this, it's pretty original for a 90s/early 2000 style site.

This is why federation makes sense, and also tags rather than subboards. Pool as many posts as possible into one giant lump of content and then have ways to narrow down the pool.

FODCOM's "style" is basically a roided up, meathead alternative to the pinkpill anime vhs 90s pink n purple grid orange sun pc98 sanrio tumblr blog art/editing style. Russian web 1.0 style is pretty underrepresented. btw I put style in quotations, as I remember being in a chat with him in '17, and one day he was saying he didn't even know what his "style" was when he started getting compliments in his comment sections, calling him an artistic visionary. Back when Sam Hyde spawned a bunch of copycats from /tv/ around 2013-2017, FODCOM came from Doomspeak Dieschau and basically formed his own brand after collaborating with a bunch of content creators, including Gibby from iCarly. I don't keep up with him too much these days since I avoid twitter like the plague, but I think the early 2000s web thing lost its charm. Early 2000s web design is a million times better than 2020 bloat, but as an artistic style, its nothing but a tacky crutch.

Sounds way too much like how social media displays content to me. I quite like the atmosphere of boards and how they foster a community. Tags separate users unnecessarily.

The whole neocities "quirky 90s gifs" aesthetic is a miss for me, at best it's inoffensive. I browse and enjoy that kind of space anyway because it happens to have a comparatively higher concentration of people posting earnestly and thoughtfully, compared to mass social media. It also seems to have a a larger breadth and variety of audience than your usual image and textboards, and that's fun to read.

Anyway, on topic, here's an archive of readings of internet posts, the common thread being that they contain the phrase "no one will ever read this"

I picked up a book about permaculture accidentally once thinking it was just a gardening book. It seemed kind of interesting, but I never really understood the philosophy behind it. The book still had some useful plant/animal raising information, though.

What happened to the bus-stop?

back up now
Hello and sorry for downtime, everyone.
Bus Stop is running on a small home server in my apartment, but it's connected to the internet using tiny and cheap virtual server which just forwards ports to my home. Apparently $1.25 per month isn't enough to get a stable VPS service anymore, so I just changed a cloud provider, and now Bus Stop IP address is located in Netherlands.

Are there any other sites that are relatively similar to Samachan? I like it precisely because it is very restricted.

The concept is interesting and I've been observing that place since you posted that but apparently the admin spent money to advertise his board on 4chan. You can imagine what it looks like now. Too bad, this had potential.(¬_¬)

I've had fair luck with relying on webrings and word-of-mouth agregators (like this thread) to find good sites. When browsing neocities or pubnixes on my own, there's a lot of low effort pages, but there are good ones out there. Not having algortithms automatically serve you attention-capturing content is just the price of participating in slower/retro internet circles.

>>755
Idk man, I'd prefer to have communities balkanized, even if there's a general similarity to people's interests between sites. Small board culture has the flexability to evolve in ways that large monocultures on popular sites cannot.

Sure, but there's something in between of huge sites like 4chan/YouTube/Facebook and these dead altchans everywhere.
You could roll at least a dozen of these altchans together into one site yet they're competing against each other for their two posts per day. I mean just looking at this thread (and the many many deleted threads for advertisement) shows you that there's probably like 5 new altchans per year. All are totally NOT like 4chan :^) but don't have any identity besides trying hard not to be like 4chan but if you care enough to check the sites out you'll see that many are just 4chan in slow motion so you can REALLY observe shit as it hits the toilet bowl.
Then there's the ones that painstakingly try to emulate 2006 but always fail.
Idk, I've been hopping alt chans for over a decade now and the only ones that really flourish(ed) are/were national chans like sosach, kc, dejimachan, ernst, britfa.gs, yli, brchan etc. and the very early 4chan alternatives like 7chan or 420chan. All those managed to emancipate from their parent and develop their own culture while building a reasonable size of a userbase. Far from 4chan's highspeed but also well over deadaltchan#9001.

What about Lainchan? An element of the success there was also not trying to emulate 4chan.
762 Name: Anonymous : 2021-02-28 08:57

Lainchan did something worse, they mixed tumbler and tech otakuism.
In imageboard terminology they mixed /tech/, /g/, /a/ and whatever hidden trash cabal board parading as tumbler that era was.
Was 4chan a good idea? If you don't think so lainchan wasn't either and it was successful since it wasn't a remake but admixture, the few altchan spinoffs that emulate lainchan weren't even vary successful, replace 4chan with lainchain in this post >>759 .
"Inter"national imageboards have it easy, there is the baseline culture in a nationality and alot you can do with an internet admixture alone, not to mention how well that culture plays with heritage and it just works for some alot of people, others the majority of people on altchans unrelated to here not so much.

I used to love Lainchan and spent a lot of time there. I feel like the weird acrimonious split with Arisuchan kind of destroyed the community, though. And then 2016 happened and the Trumpanzees flocked in to feast on the corpse.
