does jaypee remember /jp/ Themesong 2?
The guy who made that song doesn't even browse /jp/ anymore.
>>40247360https://youtu.be/2Q88TXWEc80I like the guitar version.
im a 2016 oldfag
1 is better
>>40247535He actually made a post in a thread recently. Or at least, somebody claiming to be him. It was in a thread with the same image as OP like a year or two ago, on one of /jp/'s anniversaries. The thread only got like 10 posts before it slid off the board since things were a lot faster then, so I don't think many people saw it.I can't remember enough to find it in the archives though, maybe somebody else knows what I'm talking about.
/jp/ /jp/You will NEVER be free
>>40247360I listened to this just the other day.
Been here since the split.Still hereFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
>>40247360Yeah. I always liked the /jprog/ stuff more personally. But it's not bad.>>40248880You mean this one? https://warosu.org/jp/thread/S36781673
>>40249554Oh that's the one, thanks. I feel pretty bad looking back over the thread now that nobody really acknowledged it, though I guess everyone was in full-panic mode from the spam to really notice.
>>40249608You can't start your thread with a variation of ``jaypee sucks'' and not expect it to turn into a meta thread. Even if the statement itself is true.
>>40247360/jp/ Themesong 3 would be about the dumbass singing shark and it's retarded pals like the meme bunny. Fuck you, traitors.
>>40258521it would also include 3DPD shit like JAV and idols.
>>402585443DPD fags are another beast altogether, they don't produce anything at all. I hate vtubertards but at least they produce OC.
Why don't you guys post on other image boards? The shitshow from a few years back was the final straw for me and what made me finally start giving other boards a chance.
>>40259518I already do.
I thought we were finally free but...THEY are still here even though they have their own board.
All this years passed.Yet, still no house.jaypee are bunch of liars
>>40259518I run one (not a /jp/ spinoff). That said, /jp/ spinoffs are never really much better than /jp/ with filters. Well, not for what I like in /jp/.
>>40259554>All images and discussion should pertain to light and visual novels, figures and other otaku paraphernalia, Touhou Project, Vocaloid, doujin works and music, and diverse niche Japanese interestsI know mods don't give a shit about jaypee, but there's really no reason to let the spam continue here when /vt/ exists. Nothing against the hobby itself, though I wouldn't surprised if a few of our overlords were /vt/ autists themselves.
>>40258646>ForeignersOh it's sooooo easy to dismiss it as muh foreigners, but Japs are even bigger traitors than /jp/, especially Judas Mario and JUDASYS. And don't get me started on 2ch and the increasing amount of h*rseposting.
>>40259581you didn't get the invitation to the mansion.....?
>>40258544I dont think they would mind if we leave them out>>40260815Fuck you, Uma is fine
>>40247360I'm sorry guys, I'm a newfag.
>>40260815>Oh it's sooooo easy to dismiss it as muh foreignersShit, you're right. That huge spike in posting was internal.
>>40263298Yeah, turns out people post more when there's things to discuss.
>>40263308And what an amount of discussions! Woah!
>>40247574Hello, election tourist. When are you leaving?
>>40263293It's fine. As long as you lurk enough and post quality why would it be a problem
>>40247360It's been already 10 years. I would suggest to make a new song but there is no real>board cultureon /jp/ anymore. You can't make a song just about idols and 2hu.
>>40270082Even if board culture is dead here, I would fucking love working on a /jp/ theme song 3.Never tried making music with Vocaloid but I can provide song structure and some lyricsI also suck at animating, but I can give some ideas on what to include.Fuck it. If someone is willing to work on this, let's make it happen
>>40270082I agree, it just wouldn't work. /jp/ is made up of several smaller isolated communities in the form of general threads. So if you were to write a song about 30+ NEETs saving up their autismbux to buy loli figurines, the song would only represent a small part of the userbase. It would be best to just leave it be, unless you just want to write a song about how /jp/ sux or something.
let's make the lyrics for /jp/ theme song 3, I'll start:JAYPEE JAYPEE, THROWING MONEY AT THE RETARD SHARKJAYPEE JAYPEE, THROWING MONEY AT THE RETARD RABBITJAYPEE JAYPEE, THROWING MONEY AT THE RETARD SHITTERJAYPEE JAYPEE, THROWING MONEY AT THE RETARD OCTOPUS(Chorus) JAYPEE JAYPEE, HOME OF THE VTUBER GENERALS!
>>40273163(verse)JAYPEE JAYPEE, THIS KIMOTCHIIT SURELY IS KIMOI, FROM WHAT I CAN FEELWHAT HAPPENED TO THIS BOARD ALL I SEE IS GENERALS AND VTUBERS POSTSJAYPEE JAYPEE ITS NOW 2022THIS BOARD GOT CANCERWHAT CAN I DOOOO(Bridge)WHAT DO I SEEALL THESE V-FAGGOTSALL THESE 3DPDsALL THESE WEIRD JAVsBUT THEY HAAAAVE THEIR OWN BOARDSO WHYYYY IS IT WRONGTO JUSTTT TELL THEM TOGO BAAAAAAAACKWHAT DO I SEENO MORE OCSSSSSSNO MORE FUNNIEEEEESNO MOREJAYPEEEEEEEES

>>40273163>>40273230Better lyrics>>40248968/jp/ /jp/You will NEVER be freeYou thought that making a /vt/ board could get rid of us easilyBut we're still posting here, as you can all seeAnd you will never, ever...take it easy.
wtf, this is supposed to be nice thread about taking it easy and having fun discussing the /jp/ themesong 2, even the first one from jennabee, but there's fuckin crossboarders from /vt/ being all nordling bullshit, inner turmoil, and all this bullshit
>>40274357take the damn lesson of yukkuri shiteitte ne to heart and maybe the /vt/ jackholes who give me anxiety attacks will be driven back or even assimilated and changed into the upstanding /jp/ user. Hell, touhou has momentous power, it's community is able to hijack and influence, use that damn power
>>40274357>>40274391and then maybe we'll get a great /jp/ themesong 3, that has no bullshit but the sweet and very very good side of /jp/
>>40274357>crossboarders from /vt/
>>40274481the vtuber posters being dingbats and stuff, you know what I mean. But if you are saying im from /vt/, that's not nice, i've been here for very long time and still support /jp/
>>40258646baka gaijin piggu*please, be properly disdainful
>>40260815That's not Seiran's colour scheme FUCK! why couldn't they get that right?!
>>40247360>2What is /jp/ themesong 1?
>>40249101I've been on 4chan since 2005, but I stopped going here in 2012. I've only recently come back in the last couple of months. How do you deal with these captchas?
I thought this was /jp/'s official theme song? Or are you guys too new to remember this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCSM4W8vk3Q
>>40279859This is the truest of themes.Most are probably too new to remember.
>>40279907That Jenna girl was a very talented animator. She was doing the vtuber anime girl shit on youtube back in 2010, except she would animate her own character. It's a shame /jp/ scared her off.
>>40270192Why does your image give me such nostalgia. I can barely remember it, but I know people used to post an image like that on here.
>>40274391>it's community is able to hijack and influenceBack on pre-/jp/ /a/ the 2hufags had a crazy amount of power and influence. If you talked bad about touhou they would run their imagedump scripts. But they don't have that type of power any more due to captchas and slower post rates. And the /vt/ guys have more autism/passion so if it came down to a war of attrition, the touhou guys would lose.>>40274357>even the first one from jennabeeOldfag here, I don't know why you are hating on /vt/. The irony is, the girl who animated the 2010 original /jp/ theme song was both a vtuber girl and an outsider. And her vtuber character jennabee was featured in the original song. /vt/ culture was always a part of /jp/ even before vtubing became mainstream.
/jp/ more like /vt2/
>>40279958because japanese bird cooking spaghetti is a staple of /jp/
>>40280049Peak autism on 4chan was when these two images were getting posted a lot. The autism was real. I'm so glad I got the fuck out of this place once they started doing these captchas.
>>40280011nu-vtubing is different and way gayer than its predecessor, i blame the popularization of waifu culture and its bastardising into ironic faggotry. and of course, the advancement of 'twitch culture' into its contemporary form
>>40280258>>40280011>Oldfag here, I don't know why you are hating on /vt/. The irony is, the girl who animated the 2010 original /jp/ theme song was both a vtuber girl and an outsider. Did Jennabee have a Patreon? Did she have monetization and asked people to throw money at her to read their superberries live? Did she have a Minecrap server that you could join if you bought her memberships?Yeah I thought so.
>>40280049>>40280084Well you can tell which group of invaders made this image, absolute shitters that showed up around 2011.
>>40270192>Never tried making music with Vocaloid but I can provide song structure and some lyricsWhy don't give it a try?
YAMI WO KIRISAKU OHHH DESIREEEEE
>>40280272I don't think patreon was a thing back in 2010. But yeah, I doubt she would have done those things. The current vtubers are all succubuses.
>>40280258>i blame the popularization of waifu culture and its bastardising into ironic faggotryI don't think anyone was really serious about waifuism. A lot of people just did it to fit in. In 2010 I recall a lot of /jp/ers going to that formspring social network and eloping with 3D women. I think a /jp/er ended up dating Jennabee. I recall a few other anons hooking up with other girls on deviantart during that time. When given the chance to date a 3D girl /jp/ers gave in. I know of at least 3 anonymous /jp/ers that hooked up and 2 namefags. One of which was that "currybutt" namefag if you remember him. This was 12 years ago so it's kinda pathetic that I remember some of this stuff and all of the relationship drama.
>>40280494It's sad that /jp/ers went from fucking vtubers in 2010 to SIMPing to them in 2022.
I wish /jp/ had a real song (and a real representative character) that wasn't made by some shitposting outsiders trying to force their off topic bullshit as the ideal /jp/. Yet here in this thread the same faggots wish there was a 3rd one. Why can't they kill themselves off of /jp/ forever?
>>40280640Well if /jp/ers are too lazy to contribute to the song then it will end up being heavily influenced by outsiders.
I remember the first one. The one that mention the namefags Zunbar and Aya Hirano fan. I think it was released in 2008 or 2009. For some mysterious reason all video versions disappeared from Youtube. Actually a lot of things disappeared from Youtube in the last seven years.
>>40280640>I wish /jp/ had a real song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCSM4W8vk3QThis is our real theme song. The song and lyrics were originally created by a fully anonymous /jp/er. He never returned and took credit for it. The animation and video was created by Jennabee who is a DA girl who only browsed 4chan a handful of times. /jp/ers immediately started stalking them and they were never heard from again. I just ignore the video and focus on the song itself.>and a real representative characterThe only /jp/ character that comes to mind is the meido. I don't recall another character who took off on here. Then again I haven't been around since 2012. Who would this character be?
>>40280709> Aya Hirano fanI remember Zunbar but don't recall a namefag "Aya Hirano fan".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCSM4W8vk3Q
>>40280640>mfw sperglords still trying to gatekeep on a board that's been dogshit for at least a decadeThat ship has sailed, anon. Get some rest.
>>40279859Nobody said anything about official song. Both are made by the same guy anyway.>>40280281Japanese Bird is 2008Flanfly is at least 2010Why is /jp/ so shitty (bawwwson) is I think 2009Tenshi eating a corndog is at least 2010Japanese Dog jumping through hoops is 2008Sudo = Pig is also pre 2011, and the tripfag himself has been on from like 2009saten gloryposting is I guess 2011Get out is at least 2009chen honk is 2008pls respond is around 2011-2012madotsuki vomit i guess got spammed in 2011japanese cat kneading bread is pre 2011 for sureniggy is post 2011 and also the best thing to come out of /jp/, there's no arguing about thisAnyway my point is that some of this stuff is older, but you probably saw niggy and got ghost pain in your colon lmaoIt's also interesting to never see the f uck your c ock guy being brought up, even though he was active at that time>>40280011Nobody liked it back then anyway, it got posted purely for trolling purposes. What next, are you going to fucking bring up Aya Hirano fan threads as some sort of proof that people were fine with 3DPD idol threads back then? Come on man.The problem with /vt/ stuff is that it has a containment board and it should fuck off there. That's all there is to it.>And the /vt/ guys have more autism/passionMost people from the good era have been run off the board by the terrible moderation, and there are no real means or merits for the good posters to fight back when there are alternatives out there.When even shitposters deem your board too insufferable and all you're left with is generals upon generals, you will get the bottom of the barrel posters posting bottom of the barrel shit.>>40280709It's 2009.>>40280750>>40280764At least post this version https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm6192020It's quite funny that despite the unwillingness to upload on nico, it's where it was preserved.
>>40280768This. This is exactly what I was thinking. I used to be like him 10 years ago. This entire website has went to shit. There's nothing worth defending any more. I just hope he's relatively new to /jp/ because if he was here before the /a/-/jp/ split it would be very pathetic if he's still defending this board culture after over 14(?) years.
>>40280640How long have you been on 4chan and /jp/? Just out of curiousity?
>>40280804A few of those images came from /a/. I recall bawwwson being popular on all boards.
>>40280804>At least post this version https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm6192020Do we have a way of getting into contact with the guy who created the original song. He doesn't realize how much he changed the lives of a few /jp/ers. (I can't go into detail of this without getting too personal). If he's reading this, thank you.
>>40280888Yeah, just contact Anonymous.
>>40280917Thank you for creating that song anonymous.You wouldn't think a silly song about an obscure imageboard could impact people's life but it did somehow. The song was popular enough to attract people from other communities who wouldn't normally be in /jp/. And people ended up getting into relationships, some of which are still going on today. This is why I think you guys should create a 3rd /jp/ theme song. You never know the impact a silly little song could have on people's lives.
>>40280812>>40280768Why do you even still come here then? Why don't you go hang on your superior spinoff or move on with your life?
>>40281211I come here to start meta threads and derail other threads to meta threads.
>>40281211Like I said earlier, I quit 4chan back in 2012 (or 2013). I couldn't adapt to the captcha. I only come here once in a blue moon. I gave up defending board culture back in 2012. It was futile.>>40281242You're literally me.
I have a theory that the smart people or true oldfags of 4chan all left once captcha was added. I recall making over 200 posts per day, so I'd be a moron if I stayed here and solved 200 captchas per day. Paying moot for his 4chanpass extortion was out of the question. So I got the fuck out of here, and I would imagine a lot of the smart people left as well. I have no clue where they all went though.
>>40280804>when there are alternatives out therelike what?
>>40281453I want to hear this as well. I want a replacement for this shithole.
>>40281453>>40281527They aren't hard to find for yourself. Nobody is going to post them. It'd be stupid to invite the things you went out of your way to avoid.
yes and my wife sounds adorable in it, props to whoever made itI love Luka!
>>40281545i've been to more than 50 altchans they all fucking suck harder than jp
>>40281545>muh sekkrit imageboardYour dead imageboard with threads from 2013 still up isn't a proper replacement. Face it, other than the 4chan/2ch or regional language clones like Dvach the imageboard format is dead and has been long replaced by d*scord servers.
>>402815844chan had the potential to be as popular as 2ch was in Japan. It had the potential to be more massive than r*ddit. But the questionable moderation and lack of technical ability is why 4chan never grew. In its current form, 4chan lacks the ability to scale. On a busy day, a new thread on /b/ could get pruned by the time you refresh the page. 4chan should have switched to the community format of r*ddit or d*scord. Now that doesn't mean bringing all of the namefaggotry or upvote crap, but it would allow for touhou, idols, anime, and vtubers to have their own little communities. And they could also create sub-communities for specific 2hus/vtubers.
>>40281584And even if they are active like Bunbunmaru was at one point. Eventually the community will become a ghost town. As anti-social as /jp/ers are, talking to yourself will never be better than talking to morons.
>>40281651holy shit kill yourself
>>40247360I liked the first one, dont care the second one
>>40281671I knew you would respond with that, so predictable. By big I'm not talking about having a shit ton of users shitposting on /jp/. Having more users is almost never a good thing. What I mean is more alternatives. Imagine if instead of /jp/ we had /touhou/, /danmaku/, /hololive/, /en2/, /idol/, etc.... Basically having options so that you don't have to go to a catch-all board like /jp/. But the only way that works is if your website has a userbase on par with a r*ddit or d*scord because you can create as much subboards as you want, but if you lack a large community nobody will posts on your boards. See 8ch or any of those chans that tried the community format. It didn't work because they lacked users.
>>40281677bkub got an anime, that was terrible. isnt that weird?
>>40281651>4chan had the potential to be as popular as 2ch was in Japan.Nope, anonymity + niche topics = normalfag growth poison. Even before r*ddit became a thing, digg was already taking over 4chan.>but it would allow for touhou, idols, anime, and vtubers to have their own little communities. And they could also create sub-communities for specific 2hus/vtubers.The reality is that these topics were never that big in the west in the first place and they are getting less and less popular, even in Japan.
>>40281795>>40281671All I'm saying is that 4chan would have been a better place if we had /vn/, /litenovel/, /hololive/, /en1/, /en2/, /touhou/, /doujin/, /idol/, /jav/, so that we don't have to deal with all those topics on /jp/, but it wouldn't work because 4chan doesn't have enough users to support too much sub-boards. That's literally the only possitive thing I'm saying about having a massive userbase like a website like r*ddit.This is coming from the perspective of a guy from 2012. Back then it was very rare for them to add a new board, but they seem to be adding more these days.
>>40281795Anime and vtubers are at their peak popularity in the west and they're only growing.
>>40281845doesnt it get tiring to post bait this long lole
>>40281444trips.the usual: an hero, went out into the real world (and maybe an hero'd) or they made their altchans and forums or used one from another /jp/sye
>>40281584Discord is more like a worse version of a forum than anything close to an image boardor you know Messenger, but if doesn't even shake
>>40281412>I only come here once in a blue moon.Why? If you gave up, give up. What's the point of coming back to shitpost? You're like someone's ex who won't fuck off and seethes that they're happier than you.
>>40281444and yet you're here, solving captchas, retard.
>>40282278I actually only came here to share content in OC threads on another board, but I noticed this meta thread on /jp/ and I coulnd't resist. It's good to get back in touch with fellow oldfags. I don't consider the current generatino of /jp/ers to be my people. If you weren't posting between 2005 to 2008 on old /a/ then you're not my people.>>40282283>solving captchasNope. I'm not doing this shit for much longer. I don't know how you guys manage to do this shit. I should thank the captchas, because if not for them I don't think I would have ever lost my addiction to 4chan.
>>40282278>Why? If you gave up, give up. What's the point of coming back to shitpost?I was just in this thread for nostalgia purposes when I noticed someone >>40280640 gatekeeping hardcore. I'll be honest I look down upon him. Because I see my younger self in him. If I was able to talk to myself from 10 years ago I would say: defending board culture is futile. You're wasting your life browsing 4chan all day. Use that time to create something of value or to improve your health. Stop peeing in bottles and embrace some aspects of normalfaggorty. Get over your obsession with 2D and consider 3DPD (though this is not a requirement). Have you really not evolved in all of these years anon. If I come back in 10 more years will you be this same person. And more importantly, are you proud of the person you are.Watch this video. It helps you quit your addiction to 4chan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhx6IfKrvEQ
>>40280011back then, vtuber stuff existed in decent harmony with other /jp/ stuff, there was barely any fighting, derailing, that shit. But when vtubers started to rise, vtuber posters fucked up threads, hijacked the shit out of /jp/, and when they got their own board, there are still /vt/ raiding parties and squatters on /jp/
>>40247556shit, i forgot i made that versioni miss old yaypee
>>40282597I don't lurk /jp/ every fucking day, but I see defending board culture somewhat to a degree as good. Losing the Touhou paradise is like letting Klendathu shoot a bug asteroid at Buenos Aires. /jp/ assisted me through life, somewhat, but still assisted. And thinking of the possibilities such as /jp/ falling to /vt/ crossboarders is not pleasant. Maybe I got something wrong, maybe I didn't
>>40259603A certain spinoff which sadly just recently died seemed like a pretty good board.
>>40282981Yeah, I was a daily poster there...
We have almost 2 decades worth of data to suggest that 4chan spinoffs don't last. Name a single 4chan spinoff that has lasted over 6 years and has an active community.Pooshlmer and Bunbunmaru were probably the biggest imageboard with /jp/ content both died.
/jp/ won’t be good until the mods do their jobs and move all the /vt/ cancer to its containment board, and all the “ironic” normies following it.
>>40283034I know one that actually is pretty active with OC but I'm sure as hell saying itIt's more than 10 years old too
>>40283309Not saying it*
>>40282981curious how often that happens
>>40282981kakashit nenpoop LMAO
>>40283309>>40283315>No girls allowed in my super secret club.You're a grown-ass man yet you sound like a toddler. If your super secret club has manchildren such as you then please keep it to yourself. In the last decade we've seen the vast majority of 4chan spinoffs die from a lack of activity and it's because of manchild like you. I think a person like you would be better off on an IRC channel or private d*scord server because you've become an elitist who is scared of change. This behavior is fine for a teen but you're in your 30s. You're literally me from 2012.
>>40286798I'm proud to be a manchild now :) Thanks, anon.
>>40282597>defending board culture is futile. You're wasting your life browsing 4chan all dayBoard culture is important and it depends how you use 4chan. Everything can be considered a waste of time.>embrace some aspects of normalfaggortyI go to underground raves but you can't really call it normalfaggotry since most "normal" people dislike that kinda stuff. Normalfags are only good to leech on for NEETbux.
>>40286798Anybody who would be welcome to these places will find his way to them eventually. If you can't be even bothered to explore, and expect to be fed with a baby spoon, then you should just stick with today's special.
>>40287447I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride!
>>40286798not everything has to be public, not everything has to pander to you. youre the one getting angry in a quite juvenile way, youre the one who wrote the most in this anger, and your point seems just... irrelevant, without importance.Tight knit communities are fun, sometimes, and might beget friendships, this isnt really a revelation it should not be
>>40283309i like to join and i understand why to keep it as a secret but if i dig up jp archives will i eventually find it
>>40281845>All I'm saying is that 4chan would have been a better place if we had /vn/, /litenovel/, /hololive/, /en1/, /en2/, /touhou/, /doujin/, /idol/, /jav/,There is no way thats true. I'm convinced part of what made 4chan get so bad (apart from bringing back /pol/) is all the spin off boards from /r9k/ giving the idiots more room to breathe instead of competing against each other for thread space.
>>40294921My issue with gatekeepers is that I see my younger self in them. I used to be like that back in 2012. Trying to enforce board culture is just another way of building up walls (or safe places). It's no different from SJWs requesting trigger warnings. /jp/ has become a cage to protect you from change (i.e., character development). The reason politics have become so toxic is because people are secluding themselves into echo chambers. This /jp/ echo chamber consist of:>3D women are sluts. 2D waifues are superior.>All forms of mainstream culture is bad. Counter-culter is the best.>If you're not a NEET or Hikikomori you don't belong here.>Non-/jp/ers are all morons and only 2hu, VNs, or otaku culture should be posted here.>and might beget friendshipsFriendship is something that I never wanted but that'll never happen on an anonymous imageboard. If you want friends this is not the place for acheiving that. Broaden your horizens by visiting other communities. A lot of /jp/ers went to formsrping back in 2012; I got into a relationship on there almost immediately. Consider what it would be like to fuck a 3D pig disgusting girlfriend. If you're the protagonist in a movie are you fine with your character development. Am I going to come back in 10 years and you're doing the exact same thing? I'm a liberal but I listen to guys like Jordan Peterson because he talks about personal responsbility. This is something we don't want to hear but it's needed to become the person you were meant to be. Not this asocial loser on NEETbux.Watch this video, it will break your 4chan addiction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhx6IfKrvEQ
>>40281651>4chan should have switched to the community format of r*ddit or d*scordInviting an even larger scale to the site is frankly not possible. The site already has problems with funding as is because it's both too big and too controversial to get payment via most normal means.To get an even bigger version of the site going, you'd need more mods, more efficient techniques to punish ban evasion and a host of things that could in the end make the site less attractive than it already is.Maybe if 4chan dies one day and its spiritual successor circumvents these problems, maybe adopting what Futaba does by allowing user-moderated threads ontop of moderators existing.
>>40300915lol you okay bud? You sound as if you are struggling with something.Also no, gatekeeping IS important for maintaining communities, it's all about balance really if you do it way too hard the community slowly desintegrates if you are too lax it will be destroyed by outsiders.I would say that most people are pro gatekeeping in the jay because most of us saw multiple times how other communities completely lost their "core" to the point of becoming something else.>friendship is something that won't happen in anonymous imageboardsObjectively false, met my best friends in this website. I also got to know people who made long lasting friends in 8ch*n before it died. I by all means agree with anon that close knit communities are fun, had some of my best days with those.>I'm a liberal *but* I listen to Jordan PetersonUh, 'kay. And?>4chan addictionhownew.ru or rather howold.ru while anecdotal evidence isn't true evidence, only people I have seen complain about "getting addicted" to either the (You)'s or the website in general are rather young, I personally believe it's because of how much newer generations spend time with social media and their tendencies in such websites reflect on forums. Also you are bringing 4chan addiction out of nowhere, could you perhaps feel addicted to the website? what led you to believe anon is addicted?
>>40301307Gatekeeping is inherently abnormal behavior. Most people spend their weekends relaxing or out with their friends. If you're going around berating people for not fitting the mold, then you are most likely spending too much time on the internet; hence why I think you are addicted to this lifestyle. Like I said I was a full time gatekeeper from 2005 to 2012 so you don't have to lecture me on the pros and cons of protecting a tight nit community. I witnessed the death of old /a/.The issue isn't about the website itself, it's about you and your fear of change. 4chan is a highly unproductive way to spend your day. You would be better off learning a new skill like programming. Or go to a gym and interract with members of the opposite sex. I learned that what happend to old /a/ was irrelevant to me because /a/ and /jp/ was not (and should not be) important to my life.How long have you been here anon? If you started posting on 4chan when I did back in 2005, then that means you've been here for 17 years doing the same shit every day. You've got to grow up my guy. You are going to die someday, you'll regeret all the time you've wasted here.
>>40300915>My issue with gatekeepers is that I see my younger self in them.Ok? Your personal issues are your problem, not ours. Maybe talk to a therapist or something?>Trying to enforce board culture is just another way of building up walls (or safe places).Every community has its own rules and culture, and they should be followed and respected. >It's no different from SJWs requesting trigger warnings.Nobody is requesting you to censor your shit in any way, you are outright told to fuck off or stop posting and lurk more. Which is the Right Thing to do, because nobody wants an obnoxious faggot butting into their community and bringing unwanted shit with them (and seeing you bring politics into this, I can already tell you are the kind of obnoxious faggot I am talking about). Also very ironic of you to talk about others being ``triggered''.>/jp/ has become a cage to protect you from change (i.e., character development).Translation: I don't fit in anymore and nobody can enjoy the things I used to enjoy anymore. You now have to enjoy politics and SJW like I do!Read this article, it might make you less obnoxious, and maybe make your spelling a little better: https://meaningness.com/geeks-mops-sociopaths
>>40302002>Ok? Your personal issues are your problem, not ours. Maybe talk to a therapist or something?Nope, just a oldfag passing on some knowledge. I will fuck off after this posts. What I'm saying isn't for me, it's for you guys. Because I see my old self in your guys. Just try to do some personal reflection. Are you proud of who you are, and is there something you should be doing that you are avoiding? Does posting on 4chan make you happy, and more importantly was the time you wasted on 4chan in the last year worth it? Or would you be in a better place if you wasted that time doing something more productive? Will you be here in 10 or 20 years from now doing the same thing with no character development?>maybe make your spelling a little betterYou're right I can't spell to save my life. I don't do that much typing these days. But the general combatitive nature of your post kinda goes back to what I was saying. This environment is not healthy for people. Everyone is trying to win an argument. A lot of people are saying controversial stuff just to get (yous). There's too much groupthink and elitism. In the same way that you are what you eat, your mind is what you consume online. If you are around too much toxicity you will become a more negative person. Too many of you have low-self esteem and embrace living off of NEETbux. Please become the successful person you were destined to be. Become the hero of your journey. I'm out. Good luck.
>>40260625there's a guy fighting a war against them being posted outside /vt/, he actually got a victory yesterday in getting a bunch of their spam erased from /v/
>>40282597>>40300915>Watch this video, it will break your 4chan addictionshut the fuck up no one cares about your retarded video and your beyond autstic ideas, why come here and tell us to leave 4chan? You're the one who shouldn't be here. Don't try to convince others to do the same and think the same as you.fuck your video
>>40300915>I'm a liberal but I listen to guys like Jordan Petersonyou're a liberal that likes another liberal. please don't talk about stuff you have no idea about. you don't know political theory and you obviously don't know how to run an imageboard either. fuck off
>>40303852>Jordan PetersonWe're getting offtopic but he's pretty much a conservative and his audience is overwhelmingly conservative. Joe Rogan also claims to be a democratic/liberal yet he's either pandering, or a conservative and doesn't realize it. Pederson argues that postmodernism is just a rebranding of communism and he's very much against it
>>40280049The good ol' days.
>>40259518All of the other imageboards I liked have died out over time. Sadly, they never seem to last that long.Back in the late 00's there were a lot of niche boards all over the place with lots of different subjects. It felt very experimental and it was pretty nice. The one I miss most is wakachan. It had comfy boards, even if it wasn't exactly a unified community by its nature as a confederation of several boards. For those days where you just wanted to look at pictures though, it was great.
>>40259518If I do that I won't be with my /jp/ friends anymore
>>40305113/jp/ has been feeling pretty lonely lately.
>>40305139In what way does it seem lonely
>>40305155It just hasn't been as fun. Maybe it's just me. Rough few weeks.
>>40305068spinoff boards don't take much traction nowadays unless they are national spinoffs trying to pander to local demographics i.e yilauta, dvach or kohlchan/krautchan mostly cause they're swallowed up by easy-to-make chatrooms and forums called discord servers and subreddits respectivelybasically, the centralization of the internet on the same few 30 sites has killed most of iteven if you make a new site now, common internet advertisers won't wanna work with you because you have controversial content or whatever
>>40305193Yeah, I understand that. It doesn't help that the imageboard format is an artifact of its time, where sharing large numbers of images without permanence was novel and exciting, and since nowadays anyone can send a bunch of images to people on discord or throw galleries up on sites like imgur there's nothing really left besides the culture, which has been in decline. It's really quite a shame.
>>40301960>Gatekeeping is inherently abnormal behaviorIts not, it has been everywhere through history.And this is not an appeal to tradition fallacy, "normal" implies norm and what society accepts is normal. Even modern human societies gatekeep.Social experiments for example show that being well dressed will usually earn you better attention, isn't this a form of gatekeeping? You might think of those who don't take care of themselves as having undesirable characteristics and as a result it's better to avoid or ignore them.>Most people spend their weekends relaxing or out with their friends. Yes, I spend my weekends relaxing and learning, I check the jay while I have a cup of tea at night or before sleeping, so what? I enjoy my image dump threads.>it's about you and your fear of changeSome people don't change and stick to what they believe in, others change from one day to another. This is normal, humans don't like change or actually they do but just the right amount of it. /jp/ at this point is a sanctuary that filters modern imageboard or "4chan" culture, I'll do what I can to help it remain that way, the good old days are gone but I will do what I can do to maintain the new standard.>You would be better off learning a new skill like programming.I already know programming, I am okayish at C, Ruby and I frequently do shellscripting, all my computers run GNU/Linux as well. Currently learning SDL for a personal project, been thinking about running a couple of services for my closest friends too. It's good to pickup a new skill I agree with you, but once again I think you have serious issues anon, you know NOTHING about me, yet you jump to talk about me (and the other anon) being addicts and and as if we were unhappy/lost in life. I find it funny that you replied just an hour later, watching over the thread, huh? Quite the thing for someone who hates wasting time.On the gym thing, I don't like "gyms" mostly because I am introverted but I do own a treadmill that I use everytime I simply have a desire to walk, a bycicle and two weights from years ago.>I learned that what happend to old /a/ was irrelevant to me because /a/ and /jp/ was not (and should not be) important to my life.Listen dude, it's cool that you grew out of 4chan or that you don't care about it as more as you once did, people change others move on that's fine but I don't see why you go to attempt to play armchair psychologist and "warn" others without knowing them. You said you were here since 2005, long enough to know that **/jp/ isn't one person**, same goes for /a/, /bant/, /pol/ and whatever other board. It's a stupid and gross generalization regardless of board culture.>4chan is a highly unproductive way to spend your day.Anything that is "consumption", and not "production" is unproductive, watching TV is unproductive. Watching YouTube is unproductive. Reading manga is unproductive. Reading fiction is unproductive. Reading the news is unproductive. Playing videogames with friends is unproductive.However doing unproductive stuff here and there is good, under my philosophy it's all about keeping balance, to be clear balance is not necessarily a 50-50, but rather the "right" spot.Under this model, I'm sorry I love Touhou and I will continue smiling while looking at fanarts and posting here.>You are going to die someday, you'll regeret all the time you've wasted here.No I won't. Once again, I've met my best friends here. I wouldn't be who I am today without them. Although I don't use the website that often as I once did (1 hour per day at worst, usually just 30 minutes or less, these days I only check the jay due to the website's state). I've got to witness some shenanigans that made me laugh and distract myself for a while, spending time here on April's fools is usually also fun.Once again, I think you are projecting yourself onto us, after all "you see yourself in these gatekeepers" well man, wake up, we are not you. Read your own posts and realize you are the one who needs help. First thing you do is fucking jump to politics as well as blogpost (and made me talk about my own life too to prove you wrong), no one cares about your life and how enlightened you are, we are anonymous. To top that off isn't it weird for a ""liberal"" to force his beliefs onto others simply because he finds it "childish"? Let us be in peace.Please listen to your own advice and finally leave forever. I would suggest quitting social media in general too, it's truly cancerous.I expect you to read me because you replied to me after one hour. I don't think I will post again because it will likely devolve into talking about myself which I don't wanna do. Wish you the best, faggot.
>>40300915>>Watch this videoNo
>>40305183The more time I spend here the less fun it becomes. More of a me thing than anything else. I just realize how much time I wasted afterwards
>>40318148Yeah, I think I spend way too much time on /jp/. It's not so bad if I can find something to have fun with though. Maybe I should try doing more /jp/ related activities instead of posting about them.
