Hi all, we've put together a realtime imageboard intended to unite the oldfag diaspora, capturing 4chan's 2005-06 character. Comfy posters welcome too!https://chen2.org
Realtime means you can see every letter as it's being typed. Creates a brisk pace of discussion that feels almost like an imageboard-irc. See you there~

"come to a smaller chan anon, the post quality only goes up with less users!"

Seems like a bit of a dumpster fire at the moment, I’ll check on it in a month or so after everything calms down.

It is a live board. It will never calm down.

Jesus Christ, that's horrible. What an awful idea!

intended to unite the oldfag diaspora
Everyone says this and each time it only splits the existing oldfag community further, as well as bringing in dozens of newfag wannabes who roleplay as oldfags and proceed to make everything really self-referential and cliquey.

/j/s a comfy board. I'm not sure how it was in 2006 but I like the conversational feeling. I'll keep dropping in.
/b/ feels like 4chan /b/. I guess it's just used as a containment board.

the question is where this "unity" is meant to come from.
Is it simply the call for unity itself?

You can't create it, you can't summon it, you can't simulate it. It just happens. It's a lightning in a bottle and trying to catch it again by force will always fail.

At this point newfags are a good thing, as long as they're not edgy 4chan kids. There aren't enough oldfags to go around...

I saw the arguments you put forth on /tech/. They are lacking.

You do know more than 70% of all 4chan oldfags switched to social media right? Really no surprise considering 4chinz in the early days was just an edgy web 2.0 fad most people said they hated but secretly loved. If you want to find them try discord or reddit (not joking). Most of them are into retro tech and niche japanese video game shit. Also some of the classic 4chan spinoff boards have a few oldfags (mostly discord teens playing pretend though). Your best bet would be 420 and 7

I'm not a 2003 tier oldfag, I was 6 years too late for that but I think this is plausible.
I don't think much if any of the original userbase still lurks 4/b/ for example since it was already irrecognisable when I started lurking, let alone in 2019.
I think the longer you've been there, the higher the chances you broaden your horizons and find new and interesting places. I doubt someone with even just 5 years of lurking stayed in one place for very long. Sure, I too check back on some themed boards on 4chan now and then but I won't do the full time lurking a la press F5 on page one every 5 minutes anymore. A least not there. That's why I think the original oldfags are long gone elsewhere.

yeah, it's been down for a few days it seems. shame...

I hope it comes back up. There's another board like that's called /tea/ but it's never appealed to me because of the heavy emphasis on Japan.

It's back up

Does it include ALL recovered posts, images, and stuff like that?

The concept is very good, but I was disappointed to see there's a politics board. Politics is one of the least comfy topics imaginable.
