There's a huge network of these forum sites and they have a crapload of users, I wonder why people say forums are dying?

Is there some kind of directory for active XenForo forums? I'd really love to be part of a general interest board.

If you're looking for active usenet groups, google groups aggregates new posts I think.
It's mostly file sharing these days, people prefer moderated areas with multimedia support and spam control.

The filesharing and text discussion "faces" of usenet are now two distinct worlds as no one uses traditional usenet clients for the binary groups anymore. A number of text groups are active (not when compared to the 90s usenet, but compared to english textboards for example, they can be considered so). These are exclusively tech themed groups (c, unix, gopher and so on), all the others are completely dead. The problem of usenet today, among others, is the absurdly large topical structure with thousands now empty groups made at the time when there were actually people on it.

Reminds me of all those niche text/imageboards out there. Everyone makes a new one even though the ones that are already there barely get any traffic to begin with and most of the new ones aren't even unique enough to justify their existence.

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.

This dude's channel FODCOM is also pretty good. Love his aesthetic

Why does my tablet give me a big exclamation point at the top of my browser.?

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"https://tilde.town/~karlen/

It's still in the works but it's a Myspace clone with html/css pages and all!
I'm /sk8r if anyone from here would like to be my friend :)

A simple wiki where we share about all things nature, health, life, permaculture, natural farming, seeds sharing.
similar to this place's photoboard.

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.

Out of interest, what was it called?

What happened to the bus-stop?
719 Name: Anonymous : 2020-12-17 21:38
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.

Small imageboard dedicated to the Goddess of Chaos. Please be nice.>>718
I was wondering the same thing. I was unexpectedly upset to find that it was down.

weird that you advertise so much in this place, since you seem to hate the site so much

They probably appreciate the activity. Just visit them when you're bored.

I was banned from there for liking cute pictures. I'm revoking its "cool place" classification.

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.(¬_¬)
