Can we delete tveddit? The only """""""on topic""""""""" threads are buzzwords, straight up cp is posted, and people evade bans to break the rules. What about the advertisers?

>straight up cp
Quit acting like a faggot. Pics of underage celebrity and underage Instagram models is not cp, no matter how many times you say it.
/tv/ is based.
Why is ban evasion harmful to advertisers?
I hope the new jannies have a low tolerance for soiposting.

I spent over 15 hours, with breaks, typing up an instruction manual to go along with something I sold. I only had time to sleep for three hours that night. I sent it to the guy. He immediately proceeded to not read it, mess with the settings, and break the program. Now he's asking me why it isn't working and wants to know how to use features that were never there, nor implied to be.

Since Barneyfag and ACK have nicknames, why don't we give one to this guy?
He always gets mad when people make a thread of something ever so slightly related to Apple, like the PowerPC architecture and Hackintoshes.
He always spams the same replies and uses his stupid copybot to destroy discussion.

2010-11 ish (It's not like I kept a fucking diary to check)
>What brought you here?
Fluffy torture
>What board did you browse first?
Skimmed /b/ for the fluffy threads initially, actually took my mainstay in /po/ for the stencil threads and to this day is still my homeboard.
>What are your thoughts on old 4chan, its userbase and its culture?
Better, more mature. Lurking was still somewhat a thing (albeit eroding at the time I started lurking), because at least the newfags tried to hide that they were newfags. Much less casualised; memes were memes, reaction images were reaction images, discussion was discussion and shitposting was shitposting. Nowadays the looseness of defintions has put them all into a primordial goop, which has incidentally killed the creation of all 4.
Nowadays? Ded. I only lurk 5 threads, and skim a board when I'm bored, rather than having the desire to actually look. Newfags took the internetz as srs bsnss, and now it's as good as ded.
>Is there any event you wish you had participated in?
A few anime series threads on /a/ before I got into /a/. Going off of experience, most of the 'events' on the site were severely overplayed and much more faggy than they actually were; but a man can recognise a comfy series when he sees one.

I'm not going to spoonfeed you, but a lot of the other chans still retain an older feel. You might want to lurk a few of those, see which ones you like.

some anime forum thread where someone linked 4chan
>What board did you browse first?
either /b/ or /c/, idr
>What are your thoughts on old 4chan, its userbase and its culture?
There were no such things as "home board", "board culture", "crossboarder"; you just went on a board dedicated to a particular hobby you wanted to discuss at one moment, then to a different board at another moment, without any "unspoken" expectation to act a certain way depending on a board, elitism was practically non-existant, idr it becoming prominent until about 2009-11, at lest in /a/'s case
Also i managed to catch the remnants of time before forced anon and the disgusting "culture" of "huuuuuur anonimoose good name/tripfag bad" it helped cultivate and it was pretty good, far better than what we have in a post-forced-anon.
People back then were a lot more polite and non-assholeish, 10 times so outside of /b/.
Also not having right-wingers/nazis in any even remotely significant quantities was fantastic.

But 4chan was never a place populated by even marginally smart people and it was in no way better/smarter/wittier/more underground than any other average forum, even if newer users deluded themselves into believing otherwise.

>What board did you browse first?
>What are your thoughts on old 4chan, its userbase and its culture?
From 2012-2014 or so a lot of my free time online was spent researching 4chan/internet history (at least the free time that wasn't spent posting). Something about the lack of archived threads made it a lot of fun to search for saved threads and wonder about what is missing forever. I get the same feeling reading ancient texts with lacunae, the intrigue of the lost information and the value of what has survived.
>Is there any event you wish you had participated in?
I wish I watched Haruhi and TTGL when they originally aired with /a/.

How does "resetting your router" give you a new global IP? That's your ISP's responsibility, at best you MIGHT be able to get a new IP by resetting your MODEM but even then DHCP usually holds onto addresses for a while. As soon as it sees the same MAC ID it'll just reassign it the IP you had before.

I just had 90's flashbacks.
>I once went two years with the same IP address
This is how mine is, it hasn't changed since I first moved here. I have a router/modem and it won't let me spoof my mac address like I could when I had a separate router and modem, so I'm just stuck with this IP forever.
>If I reset my cable modem
how long is it off? my ip address has only changed after a long power outage.

press left button
then press right button
it just werks
I have kept it off for an hour before. It doesn't do anything unless I call my ISP and ask them to change it. They usually ask why. I figured out if I say I'm being harassed then they do it without asking anything more.

i used 4chan every day from age 13 to 18 but this past summer after turning 19 i've just had no desire to browse any board..it makes me very sad as this is my home and i've now been lost for three months. this placed raised me and i just left it

i might hop back into /k/ or /o/ if my interest in those topics spikes again, but it's too early to tell. my current interest is bodybuilding and /fit/ thinks it's disgusting (and the /asp/ mods straight up delete my posts but that's a complaint for a different thread) so i've been forced to spend all my time on /r/bodybuilding and other obscure forums

Just stay that way, OP. You're likely better off this way, even if it doesn't feel that way now.

Hey anons, ever since yesterday, when I try to restart my computer it pops up with the restarting logo and successfully shuts down.Then my computer goes into some sort idling and the no signal remains on the monitor. Haven't found any good answers anywhere else or maybe I haven't seen them because I'm a retard. Whatever the case is, if you could help me I'd be grateful.

>>>/diy/ has some specific theeads for questions too.
try /wsr/
Try to use a different monitor or cable if you have one, also try using DVI if you are using HDMI and the other way around.
If you don't have spare cables or monitors, try using motherboard graphics.
If it works then it's most likely a GPU problem (could be PSU as well)
You really have to figure out if it's the computer or the monitor, do you have something you can try swapping with?
So, does your computer successfully restart, or?... Because if it does, then it's perfectly normal for your screen to display a no signal message, because it literally won't be receiving any video signal during the time between when the computer is on.

why are people getting mad at this?
Well any meme that targets a group of people obviously has a side
I just remember the times when memes were just "silly Internet stuff to laugh at", and didn't have "targets" or "sides". I think it was around 2014 or 2015 when things changed.
