Cool Places + internet edition +

Probably the coolest text board I've ever seen and participated in.

Wasn't very interesting or cool at all.
I was actually expecting something.

Yea man, the Computer Club board has a really nice aesthetic to it.

I get the distinct feeling the people there are garbage.
some anons might describe atob as a bastard child of reddit, 4chan and hubski

I wish feels.ca was still up...

What happened to them?

Feels.ca was a spin-off from /r9k/ after someone decided that all the ">tfw" posts on r9k deserved their own site. Users could submit their own feels, upfeel feels and even comment on feels. It had a unique feel to it that I really miss and I'm still looking for something like that today. It had a lot of feels and few replies. I remember most feels having less than 6 to 10 replies while there were a few outliers that had over 70 replies. It was mainly a "upfeel and post your own feel" sorta crowd instead of "every thread will be replied to". Maybe the content was read for what it was and it was respected by not derailing or disturbing it? I don't know. All I know is that just browsing and reading would mean laughing maniacally at the juvenile shit that was posted or genuinely shedding tears over a guy poring his heart out after disappointing his father who died. The community was really close knit and I miss that a lot. Don't get me wrong, it certainly had bad days, and it was probably worse than I'm making it out to be because of nostalgia goggles. My nostalgia certainly is acting up right now. But I still get the distinct feeling that communities are worse now, across the entire net.

I like unique website ideas like feels.ca and atob. But the execution of atob is just garbage. I could elaborate on why but it's not worth discussing; not here at least. I could look past these imperfections if the user-base seemed at least somewhat invested in the site at all. Shitposting is one thing, but it seems like they're just reddit-tier idiots over at atob.xyz. They don't seem invested in the community at all, it's got no identity, like some sub-tier AI bot mashed up random 4chan/b/ posts with reddits' "keep things nice" attitude and a garbage web UI design that only works for phones with touch screens. It certainly has that kind of webdesign that screams "Chode of Conduct".

I dunno, maybe I'm not feeling good right now. Form your own opinion or something. I just don't like atob and that's my two cents. Go visit atob if that's your kinda corner of the internet.

I honestly think the more obscure and harder it is to get into something? The higher the fan base quality. People will have to put in some effort to get there in the first place which acts like a giant filter keeping all the idiots out. I sometimes feel like me and my posts are not worthy enough to post here (or other quality boards for that matter), so I simply refrain from posting. Even now I feel like this post may upset the laidback vibe of the post office somehow. I love you guys.

That's what I think is wrong with the internet. All this centralization and ease-of-use leads to a unified conglomated mass of Twitbook and WhatsSnap. Before you had to actually invest some energy in order to become part of a community, this acts like a bit of a filter. Now, no one has their own corner with their own crowd they can yell with and at because everyone's all part of the same damn crowd! There's no communities anymore, it's a global mashed together garbage pile of "feeds" and "timelines" that you can't even get a simple RSS/atom link for because shareholders don't like that. And god forbid if you ever say something that upsets someone, this centralisation means you get booted from everything at once. Just the other day, some sysadmin got an entire business with all 150 employees suspended from google's systems because he and him alone 'abused' the refund policy on the google play store after he bought and refunded his friend's app so he could crack it and send it to his friend (who actually made the damn app) saying "Look at this cool app that does [thing], completely free! lololo". Meanwhile, google suspende all 150 employees including some who can't even access their own PRIVATE email accounts now because google figured to suspend them as well. Enjoy getting industrially DoS'd from basic communication channels everyone uses. And that's nothing to say about the algorithmic filtering social media enterprises do to make the world a gigglier place! C:

A couple hours ago I looked into a Hypercard clone (vipercard.net) someone made that runs in your browser and I remembered playing that Glider game back in the 90s. My God, where are we going to end up in another 20 years? Are people going to read this post in 20 years and look back on 'how much better' the internet was or is textposting going to be entirely dead by then?

I sure hope someone reads this in the far future. If you are? Go revive some ancient technology and put it online. I'm sure it attracts a better poster...

This sentiment is so common and is repeated almost to ad nauseam at this point, at least on the corners of the internet I find myself lurking, mostly from people who grew up during the 2000s probably, but there are no steps being taken to rectifying it, or creating a utopia free from these problems, people just complain. I think there, at least currently, is no feasible solution that will come about. Things, as you predict, are probably only going to get much worse. I have some hope that someone smart will come up with something, or that culture will shift so far that people get sick of the state that the internet is in, but right now the majority are more than pleased with where things have ended up.

Message received. Commencing mission. I'd like to immortalize this post on a self-published e-zine somewhere, if that's okay with you?

That may improve YOU; I think the only way to improve the internet is to be the kind of user you want to see, and encourage others to do the same.

That way, anyone can write it down, put it in an envelope somewhere for 20 years and search for it on whatever the internet uses by the time they open it. Hopefully it will be on textfiles.com or something.

I love how so many of the other imageboards listed in this thread have similar threads pointing to even more imageboards and neat sites.
Wandering through the internet through chains of links like this feels like an adventure.

This guy records his train driving journeys using a POV camera. It's a really comfy experience in contrast with riding in one as a passenger. I know, because I used to ride the same trains/routes for hours.
