    I used to be so bored that I went to 4chan everyday. Jesus Christ, as soon as I found Reddit, I wondered why I even wasted time. Has anyone else done this, or has the internet completely written off 4chan already?

    Considering the fact that 4chan still gets thousands of visitors every day... no.

    I hardly ever visit 4chan anyway, only when some big news on gaming so I'll visit /v/ and see what's happening there.

    but reddit is totally different from 4chan so you can't really compare them.

    I don't think I had ever heard of Reddit before reading this thread. [​IMG]

    I checked it out, and hey, it's pretty cool. [​IMG]

    And then... [​IMG] ...I saw Rydian on the "what's hot" part of Gaming. O_O

    HWOO! It surprised me! O_O


    Reddit isn't replacing 4chan for me. I never really went to 4chan except for short visits anyway. Too insane. o.o;

    I have seen 4chan, but the first post I saw was of a mutilated body. I have since never gone back.

    What is Reddit, by the way?

    I've never been to 4chan in my life...

    Is that good or weird?

    Reddit doesn't have /s/, therefore: no. [​IMG]

    Gawd, soon Rydian is going to be an internet meme. XD.

    I have a reddit app on my phone that provides me with lulz before I go to bed. It singlehandedly saved me from having to listen to people talk constantly about their female problems on Live.
