This is a board for the vidya, toys, games, food, and memories that keep us young at heart (and mind)

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.

/qa/ had a 3rd party filter system that made it a 2D/random board before hiro killed that and forced the move to kissu and other spinoffs. It was nice and fun, but it was kind of weird that we were acting like this when we weren't teenagers anymore. /qa/ had an edit of that image where she was having fun again.

Those first 2 years or so on 8chan were fun as hell, everyone was trying to make their own board, IRC was popping, etc. It's sad what it became and how it ended. The webring kind of brought it back, but it didn't retain many users outside of the huge boards. But it did make anonymous imageboards much more decentralized again. It was juvenile but it was authentic and fun.
>>958
There are certain time periods on certain boards I wish I could turn into books and have with me forever. Archives make me very wistful, though and some have their own culture of ghostposting. Many suffer from spotty archives and some straight-up don't keep images to avoid legal issues.
>>1028
I think you should help with and post on already existing ones rather than add another one, it will likely add another corpse to the pile of dead boards.

There are webms of how bad it has gotten. It's almost crazy that it managed to get worse.

Discord has sucked the life out of so much, it's almost sad, even those hole in the wall MAL club and "cyberpunk" communities have had the life sucked out of them by discord.

Oh i've used /ic/ quite a lot few years back. It's honestly a horrible place. And while they say they are harsh on people to give constructive criticism, frequently it's just bullshit. I understand not like someone's art, even if he's skilled. I do that too, but I never would shit on him personally. I wish a cozy place for art existed online, but nothing so far found. And I have no clue how I should advertise my own stuff. I don't even feel like I can because it makes me feel like an snake oil salesman

As a side note, I have a really cute story to tell. When I was posting my art to insta some (I assume) little girl liked my post, and she often visits my page to see what I've made. She also makes lots of cute fairy, witch and magic art and seems to have made a small clique of art friends there cause they like their stuff and tell themselves positive things. It warms my heart everytime I see it on my home page.

I think I was probably around 11 or 12 when I first got home access to the internet. It wasn't until I was 15 that I started browsing *chan boards. I'm glad I wasn't any younger- there's a certain degree of desensitizing I've experienced, but it hasn't full-blown made me feel utterly disconnected from other people.

If anything, one of my main take-aways from *chans (and the internet in general) is that most people have something that makes them weird as fuck, even if it's something they never share with others.

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

RIP Miura, It hurts me to think he devoted all his life to his manga and couldn't finish it

The same week we got the notice of Miura's passing, two days after that, I got the notice of one of my only friends passed away as well, he was my first friend, we were friends for almost 20 years, it still hurts.

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.

I'll start…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhKgFjJIZzU
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.

It also holds a special meaning on top of it all as well. I played it alongside my very first crush which was a girl who worked at the bookstore at the mall where the arcade was. She grabbed my hand and dragged me to the arcade when I told her I had never played DDR yet. I wasn't really nervous about the music part in public. I was more nervous of being really bad at the game in front of people. I ended up getting pretty good and played a lot during the 2000s until my health started to get worse and I became really out of shape. By then I had to travel quite some distance to get to the closest DDR cabinet as arcades completely left my area.

I last played Aura Kingdom and returned to RuneScape with OSRS. I lost my Aura Kingdom account due to inactivity, which it was pretty much a dead game and I quit playing. Then OSRS I lost my account for reasons I still don't understand and lost A LOT of GP and time that I put into the game. Anyone here who has played RuneScape knows how much of a grindfest it really is and how much time you can accumulate without realizing. I'd love to find another MMO to capture me, but I don't think that's going to happen. I've been reverting back more and more to older games. I do enjoy getting on Fightcade and doing Netplay whenever that's possible though. I know it's been forever since both of our posts. But I'm going to check out that link and listen to a bit of that album.

I had TMNT figures, Street Sharks, and Extreme Dinosaurs. Never did have a battle or anything with them though. Mainly just had them team up against other "baddies" I had laying around. I did use to have all of my figures in some really big toy cars/trucks I had do a bunch of races though. I'm sure I probably pitted them against each other in that manner.

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.

OP here again. Tomorrow is christmas and I get a Go board as a gift, it's very nice. I regret not asking for a more expensive one but plastic will do for now because I have an idea.

I promised myself that if I get to 10kyu I'll buy a more fancy & expensive one. I hope that after all those lockdowns my local Go club meets again so I can muster up some courage and go there.
