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.

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.

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.

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.

Creative projects like Densha Otaku (2ch) and Katawa Shoujo couldn't have happened on image boards today. Far too much has changed and are way too many assholes going to imageboards to crusade about politics for that level of collaboration now.

Old trees can be pretty nostalgic. Is anyone inyerested in growing trees?

I had to cut down my Granny Smith apple tree some years back, but I'm trying to graft (clone) a new apple tree (so far so good.) This is the first time I've had a graft survive and I'm stoked.

I'm also growing a lot of exotic/tropical fruit trees in 25 gallon containers despite how I have a small yard. In my pots I have growing: Asian Pears, Loquats, Longans, Lychees, Rose/Malay Apples, Wax Apples, Mangoes, June Plums, Australian Finger Lime, Jaboticaba, Peanit Butter Fruit, Miracle Berry Fruit, Jackfruit, Feijoa, Eggfruit Mamey Sapote, Sapodilla, and White Sapote.

I also have some common apple, pear, nectarine, peaches, cherries, surinam cherries, oranges, lemons, jujube, cape gooseberries, jostaberries, black berries, lemonade-blueberries, red and green gooseberries, pomegranates, figs, and pink and white guava.

Depending on your climate you can grow different kinds of fruits and some of mine have died, but I want to taste as many of the weirder fruits that I can't simply buy at the supermarket.

I liked the old doujin games from the era when they still had to distribute their games on CDs at Comiket. This was before Japanese indie developers started publishing on Steam, (which started during the 2010s.)

There were a lot of MUGEN fighting games. There was Eternal Fighter Zero, (a pretty awesome game of characters from KEY fighting each other (Air, Kanon, and One~ Kagayaku Kisetsu e~.) There was an Elfen Lied game, and one of Lucky Star characters fighting each other. It was a glorious time to play obscure otaku games made for otakus.

No.1109

I wish Steam was filled with games like these.

It's like back in the 2000s otaku culture was in its' golden age. These obscure games were played by all the otakus. Anime was fucking good. 4chan was a decent website.

Good times.

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.

This is an unused song from the game Suguri, one of my favorite shmp doujin game franchises from the 2000s. Whenever I hear the soaring dream trance I feel like I'm happily soaring above the clouds and exploring a beautiful level they always wanted to make but never got around to doing. It might have been the best level in the game.

I liked the secret world of alex mack when I was a kid about the girl who could turn into liquid to sneak under doors and I investigate the evil corporation that was polluting her town. This picture reminds me of her unique ability which I haven't seen any other shows use.

If I remember right she sometimes got frozen in freezers by villains.

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.

Two sites now claim to be the successor, but they both fail at it. Ernstchan is too serious, lacking the playfulness and bantering, not to mention the lack of anime. Kohlchan is even worse, being the place that just reflects everything bad that Krautchan had without the good.
Since then I am homeless on the web, straying from site to site, never staying long. None is able to provide that feeling of being home again, nowhere I found friends again. I wonder if I would like Krautchan if I would have found it today, I have changed a lot. Part of me is afraid I wouldn't like it now, back then it was just so new to me, everything was funny and interesting. Now I am just tired, jaded, yearning peace, silence, some kind words and a mutual understanding. I guess I just miss the circle wanking I had with the friends from the booze threads, I doubt they will ever read this post but still. I haven't forgotten you, Miyu, Lauert and Desu. You were my best buddies. I hope you are well and satisfied with your life.

Yeah, it definitely wasn't graphically on par with some of the other games at the time and being a later PlayStation game at that. But as you put it, it's EXTREMELY comfy.

Finally got around to watching it. Definitely had to get some good laughs out of a lot that he said. So true points such as Twin-headed Thunder Dragon being your best friend in the beginning of the game until you grind your life away trying to get better cards. I still remember literally having to beat the mages 400+ times myself and doing the exact memory card "cloning" of cards. Speaking of that, I should still have a memory card with my save data on it if nothing has happened to it. Haven't probably checked on it for about a decade now though. I've played the Japanese version since then through emulation though. Also makes me realize I shouldn't have allowed all of my childhood friends to have a copy of my save file after doing all of that hard work and made them all go through the struggle themselves. lol

I also agree about the starchips system in the game with booster packs as suggested in the video. That would have made things so much easier. Also his claims with Summoned Skull is false. I had one and pretty sure there was a mage or two specifically you faced to get it. (of course after who knows how many duels) I can only imagine how much of my life was wasted doing free duels to get 'rare' cards.

No.1092

Pokemon, even though I have to admit that I didn't like gen 6. gen 7 and gen 8 but overall the franchise is precious to me. It always takes me back to the simple days of my childhood, sitting in a corner with my gameboy. Sometimes playing with friends, sometimes with my brother. Especially gen 1 - 4 hit hard, because then I was still a child, sometimes while playing it I remember stuff I had long forgotten.
Everytime I pick up a pokemon game it is like I hold a piece of my childhood. Themes like national park and ss anne make me tear up to the point that I have to mute the sound, else I can't contiune to play.
