Hi all, I've been a 4chan user for about 1 1/2-2 years now and I'm just wondering what are YOUR thoughts on this popular image board?

When I was hearing stories and getting my foot in the door I loved it. So many funny sayings and images. But going there now seems as though the only words anyone says anymore is: fag, dick, your mom, etc.

Pretty sad that nothing grabs my attention anymore. One in awhile I'll see a few funny Flashes or a U Raff U Ruse thread.

Thoughts?

Let's be honest, 4chan is the breed and origin for trolling. They created memes before memes started to become a fad. To me they either annoying or resourceful, majority of the time 4chan is annoying.

That site is for kids and what can you expect? If your mentality exceeds a 10 year old's, then it isn't the place to be. Honstely though sites like 4chan and reddit cater to the immature 10 - 25 year old group of human beings. That is basically the age range it is suppose to be attracting.

I don't believe that amounts to a large percentage of the population. Problem is, a lot of people on these forums are blinded by the fact that a lot of people don't pay attention to these little circles and groups of people online because they tend to not want to bother with strangers.

I don't know, 4chan does seem like it's hosting 12 years olds, but at the same time I doubt it. And I feel Reddit is WAY more mature.

I have met people that go to reddit irl needles to say it wasn't that pleastant of experience thus far. it seems about the same but the younger adults are misguided into trolling there for a bit.

anyway i heard 4chan /b/ or whatever section /p/? I dunno what they label it their porn section no longer allows kiddie / under 18 porn any more so at least that probably made a lot of weird deranged kids give up on it.

/b/ is the 'Random' board. It's used for posting whatever you are thinking/doing. But people often just use it for porn. They have porn boards already.

My first thought was, how do you use this,

this for me. i tried going to it since i kept hearing it before. however i've only been to gbatemp and a few other forums so i didn't know how it was organized and i was just lost and confused so i gave up.

4chan is a shithole, it has been since inception. It's still been a source of great entertainment to me for years and even if I have found its ability to hold my attention waning over the last couple of years I still vastly prefer anonymity and minimal moderation to normal forums or rating based shit like reddit.

Pretty much all online are shit to some degree or another. The beautiful thing about 4chan is that it doesn't try to deny this - 4chan revels in it. There's absolutely no pretension of being anything other than a huge cesspool. That's kind of liberating.

Now, Tumblr, on the other hand...
