Cool Places + internet edition +

a website and communities dedicated to it: https://nosurf.org/
Dang, this is an interesting rabbit hole to go down. It's definitely got me reflecting on myself a bit...
387 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-16 08:32
Not completely I hope.

Is this correct, it works via snail mail?
Can anyone confirm this?
389 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-16 10:59
Can confirm that is correct.

It's a pretty cozy place to be honest.

yet another dead image board with anime all over it
Meh. Not that dead boards can't be interesting but this one is just one of the many that are advertised here by quasi spammers on a regular basis.

It came back at possibly one of the worst times too, with all the fallout from the stupid “alt-chan federation” discord leaks, there’s already people screaming “rulecuck”.
Teens are the worst.

Can you tell me a bit more about the "alt-chan federation"?

Aren't they related to the world wrestling federation?

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.
397 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-22 00:28
This isn't part of their "ring", but is a good example of what them trying to sow dissent looks like. I really hate how these cesspits try to treat smaller boards as farms for users.
398 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-22 03:49
Ever since 8chan went down it really does seem that imageboard culture is dead now. What's next for us that don't want to be part of the new age that's come and destroyed what was so special about our past culture?
399 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-22 04:16
I post on the /qa/ spinoffs daily. 8gag has bunkers if you’re intent on keeping that alive.
400 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-22 09:13

8chan was not great, but I still think irc and textboards are the master mode of communication
401 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-22 15:41
I never really cared about 8chan personally, but it was a containment for a bunch of shit and taking it down was like taking out a buttplug. Then having all of that "shit" just spew out all over the internet.

I agree, I had kind of avoided them in the last 4 years or so and have found it to be much better in terms of quality and context.
402 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-22 19:59
That 64chan idiot also spammed his shit on KC the other day too. Despicable.
I think the culture is still alive, just different. And if you insist on its death, then it sure died before 8chan.
I never understood why there aren't more new people coming to smaller boards though. I mean I'm not really one of the ancients and I'm very much part of the "new world" but I still found my way here, I wonder where all the other hipsters and internet adventurers are.
403 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-23 03:29

If I were to guess, i2p, onion, irc, and if you’re the real god of adventurers, telnet.
404 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-23 12:05
onion and irc are dead, I've been there. Telnet is way too insecure.

I've reached the point where there isn't anywhere left for me to post, aside from occasional half-hearted posting on some slow alt-boards that don't have much going on. And a lot of alt-boards are just as bad as or worse than 4chan (e.g. Tohno-chan is the latter). There's nothing worthwhile outside the chanosphere either. Socially speaking, the internet has run its course.
407 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-26 04:32
I wouldn’t say Tohno-chan is worse than 4chan, I hang out in their IRC and occasionally post there and it’s fine if you like the negative chatter or find it cathartic (or actually have a waifu)
Aside from that, it’s not our fault you can’t have fun with the internet anymore, there’s plenty of things going on even in 2019 that I wouldn’t give up for a lot of things.
I think you’ve grown up, but I think it’s short sighted to say that there’s nothing worthwhile on the internet.
408 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-26 09:36
Just post everywhere from instagram, to facebook, to discord, to reddit, to 4chan, to Kohlchan, to here and beyond.
Every layer has its cool niches with their own peculiar culture. I don't see why one should limit themselves to a single layer. that's like only ever eating pasta.

They also own this fully black page (http://www.e-try.com/black.htm) for some reason. There is a black font text in it that says: Copyright 1998-2011 Qameleon Technology, Inc.

Does anyone know of any good irc servers?
414 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-30 06:19
Eh, that's just unfounded elitism. As I said, every place has its interesting niches. Denying that is just as ignorant as the """normie""" who never goes deeper than Reddit.
Also >>410 has a point.
This place isn't really for full time lurking, once you've been through the entire catalogue so switching between the aforementioned sites is refreshing.

To make my case: There's young people making content today like we did way back on good old 4chan/b/. We made our rage comics and image macros and they're doing their stuff and contrary to popular belief (among elitist image/messagebiard users) not all of this is surface level trash for """normies"". Even on Facebook there's places for wierdos. Yes, ""zoomer"" wierdos but they made their own subcultures and if you're not jaded you can find merit there. As I said, it's pretty ignorant to dismiss an entire platform based on the ancient 4chan "us irrgulars vs the evil, invading normalfags" dichotomy. If you have a knack for the obscure you'll find your entertainment everywhere, even on one of the most used sites of the internet.

Well, or you could try in vain to emulate 2006 4chan by posting anime on /jp/ spinoffs.
415 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-30 14:15
There’s more to the internet than 4chan and social media. I imagine most people don’t want to use those sites including 4chan for privacy reasons. Just remember not to take it too seriously and to have fun on it, the internet isn’t serious business and I think that’s why people don’t like social media, it’s hard to separate real life and the internet on it and the privacy concerns compound that.

I think the dig at anime & /jp/ spinoffs was uncalled for as well.

This but youngins don't use facebook anymore. Facebook is home to pretty much everyone on the internet that's over the age of 26. There are indeed plenty of odd people there and there's lots of active chat rooms.
417 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-30 15:17
Privacy concerns
See, people still have an outdated opinion about this. There's no privacy nor seriousness involved if you make a fake account with a throwaway email. It's just like another forum account.
And I don't even buy the privacy concerns. I know very well about the motivations.
Yea the popularity is waning but facebook hasn't been used as a traditional social network by young people for a long time now. I mean look at how facebook was used back then:
People made a thorough personal profile, uploaded lots of pictures of themselves and then posted every hour about what they're doing.
You have one or two meme avatars and a meme name and do nothing but share posts from memepages and shitpost in groups.
Only boomers still use it the original way.

The actual social media bit now happens on Instagram and snapchat where people still blog about their oh so interesting lives. But even there there's some unique cultures that don't use these sites for thier intended purposes and quickly subcultures form.

If you think privacy concerns about social media are outdated you haven’t heard anything about privacy in a long time.
Also, this is a very cool website to get the thread back on track: https://www.privacytools.io/

Not really. Data you don't share online doesn't just appear there. And anything beyond that like cookies and meta data aren't a specific social media problem.

I'm actually being informed about the demise of my obscure chinese imageboards serving my need for music of the moe kind

sometimes you can find really cool stuff on the internet archive but most people know it for the wayback machine to look at old and archived websites

collection of manga comics

arcade games playable in the browser

old k-mart store recordings

old games for ms-dos playable in the browser

mirror of github repos

old ms-dos malware

As far as I know Meguca is /a/, not /jp/.

There's a subreddit and website called "Archive Team" dedicated to archiving dying bits of the web if you're into that sort of thing.
