This thread is to remember all the sites that don't exist anymore, are inactive nowadays or went downhill.
I start with a site that was like a home for me, one that messed me up severely and yet the place I had the most fun with and the place where I found the greatest friendships I ever had.
Of course it was an imageboard, Krautchan to be precisely.
Known as the alternative to 4chan it was a mainly German imageboard, but also had a /int. I spent most of the time on /b which was truly as random as random gets. Thread 1 about the German videogame Gothic, thread 2 about Haruhi, thread 3 about drinking booze and talking about everything possible, thread 4 some circle wanking about Hitler, thread 5 someone asking about what to cook, thread 6 someone asking how to neet in Germany, thread 7 ranting about your job, and so on. It was so contradicting, people peacefully drinking beer with each other, posting pictures where they cheers to each other, to others telling you the usual kill yourself and whatever. Everyday was just so exciting to see what is going on now and I even found friends in the booze threads. Friends that turned out to be the best friends I had so far, friends that I miss dearly.
Unfortunately the entire site went to shit when less and less friendly threads showed up and those got invaded by the rude folk, having nice talks was impossible and moderation did nothing. In fact you got even banned when you said something about it. I didn't witness the last years of it because I took a break from imageboards for multiple years, then all the fucked up stuff there messed with my head. When I came back it was gone and my friends too.
This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.
iSpy photos are so comforting and nostalgic to me. How about you guys?
Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.
What websites did you visit a lot when you were young?
>pic related (basically a site full of kids' games, went there all the time when I was like 8)
>Disaster Labs (group of people who made games, flash movies, webcomics, and other stuff; they disbanded in the late 00s and I still don't know where everyone went)
>Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, etc.
>every cheat code and FAQ site under the sun
>Newgrounds, Albinoblacksheep, and all the flash game sites that grabbed games from them
This thread should be considered a sort of shrine to notable people we've lost in our lifetimes. Given the board, I'd like to keep things /nos/talgic by focusing on positive feelings. Let's reminisce on the happy moments these people brought, rather than sadness.
I'd like to start with the event that inpired me to think on this matter: Kentaro Miura's recent passing.
I was never intimately familiar with Beserk, but it nonetheless influenced me. I recall watching a video essay about Miura's artstyle and was blown away by the intricacy of his scenes. It inspired me to not only learn how to draw, but to emulate him specifically. I look back on all the hours spent painstakingly crosshatching things I drew. Shading was an odd thing to focus on as a beginner, but it is with fondness for these naive moments that I remember the passion Miura's works instilled in me. RIP
This is another thing I found on YouTube. I'm not really nostalgic for the track playing, but just the sights in this video radiate that nostalgic energy that I don't know how to describe…

I got rid of these years ago and I'm kicking myself
Board games! Roleplaying games! Traditional and modern, chess and Dungeons & Dragons.
Do you have games in your heart you liked to play when you were young? What comes to mind when you think of a vacation at your grandparents, what sort of games did they pull out from that old toy-box?
For me it's pic related, Mühle. English name: Nine Men's Morris. I was always a bit too slow for chess but this I could play easily. This week I also started playing Go online. I might get really into it,
It captures the idea of "Easy to learn, Hard to master" very well. I like the philosophy of always looking to improve in the face of losing. I played & played & played and lost maybe 27 games of 30 but then I played against a friend who only knew the rules and I won every game somehow with just a few days of experience.
Post them, which ones did you get?
Let's talk about mothers. I don't have a good relationship with mine. Here's a joke, in comic form, that my mother has told me she tells to other people, when talking about me. I am Son B.

So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.
The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.
Years ago common forums were very active and lots of people had personal pages
Today not even google can take you somewhere new.
I'm really nostalgic about older technology.
Let's talk phones, for example.
They were really high quality engineering masterpieces.
>High build quality, metal parts
>made not in China (in case of Nokia that was Finland)
>week battery life out of 900 mAh
>physical keys, so you don't swipe screen like idiot
>repairability. Nokia did supply schematics, with all test point signals and such.
What happened? Why modern devices are so inferior and, well, boring?
What are some VHS tapes that you remember watching when you were younger. Could be home videos, movies, tv shows, cartoons, anime, shit you found in a dumpster, etc.
Share some /nos/talgic VHS memories!
Nostalgic Crush Thread
This thread is for any nostalgic crushes that you had. What are they from? Why did you like them? (If they're real did they age well? lol) Animated and real allowed.
Try not to judge anyone. This is a friendly thread :D
I'm starting off with an obvious one for me. Mitchell Tratchenberg from Harriet the Spy. She was also in The Adventures of Pete and Pete she's been in a lot of other stuff too. I remember watching Harriet the Spy a lot on my VCR. I can quote the hell out that movie. Harriet was a really cool character and I've always loved writing and ninja stuff and spy stuff so I connected with her character a ton.
So what about you guys?
The nostalgia for the 00's right after the next corner, lets talk about it.
I just saw Harry Potter while channel surfing, I know that HP and the whole fantasy wave will be a massive nostalgia blast in a couple of years.
I don't miss much of the culture and stuff but my 90's memories are a void and many important events for my life happen in the 00's
On a personal level I been missing the 00's because I miss teen me, the lifestyle I had back then and the friends I had.
Me and my friends were kind of hipster-nerds, we talked about weird movies, obscure music, strange comics and still keeping an intellectual air to it and there were many persons like that who fed that feeling/aesthetic.
I'm sad that a lost all of that and I became a run of the mill nerd, all other people like that peobably moved on and have jobs and families now.
Lets talk about what we were doing not so long ago.
What are some lessons that you remember learning during your childhood?
Did you learn them the "easy" way - sitting on your grandpa's knee? Or the "hard" way - that touching that hot stove when mom says not to is not such a good idea!
Does anyone get really nostalgic over certain smells? There's plenty of various smells that do this to me. But first I'll mention freshly opened packs of Pokemon, Digimon, and Yugioh cards.
i'm too old for this vid to find this specific vid nostalgic, but i love the idea of this subtle, relaxing nostalgia fuel. it makes me want to try and make some of my own?
what would your scenes be like?
mine would be: journaling/doodling late at night while i listen to Art Bell on the radio during a thunderstorm, rp-ing on lotr forums while listening to loreena mckennit, sneaking downstairs at night to watch cowboy bebop on adult swim after everyone else had gone to sleep.
Merry Christmas! Does anyone have really memorable Christmas stories/traditions that remind you of your childhood?
I was born a bit later than most of you it seems and this is what I grew up with. The music still stirs up strong emotion.

That's a kind of nostalgia?
I think so, So I created a thread for him.

I miss ylilauta
int is still there but it's not the same as it was :(
Do any of you have that one piece of media from your childhood, or otherwise that seems to have flown under the radar?
Sometimes I think back on all the media I've seen in my life, and often ones that never saw widespread appeal come to mind. With nostalgia for games like Pokémon, it's nice because we can all collectively reminisce on something that we enjoyed, but for some other things, there are very few who experienced them.
This tends to leave me with an immense sense of sadness. Something that holds such fond memories for me has not been seen by others, and in the worst case, may slowly fade from public consciousness, lost to time.
Imageboards are inherently very ephemeral, but maybe we could get a thread going for things we have nostalgia for, but others usually do not. Maybe we can prolong the death of our favourite things just a bit longer.
How about Samurai Jack coming back next year?
This is a board for the vidya, toys, games, food, and memories that keep us young at heart (and mind)
