I would have never thought so many people would ever read anything I wrote. Especially since it only took me about five minutes (compared to everything else I have done) to write and a Guro Sunday flood on 4chan to get all the pictures.
IRONY TRUCK BEEP BEEP BEEP
Anyway, the bulk of this has to do with something I find really dear to my heart.
It would seem like it was only a little over a month ago, I was mourning the more than likely final loss of 4chan.
Well guess what bitches, its back
Anyways, as many of you know, 4chan went down on June 20th mainly due to bandwidth costs. After several people just being plain retarded and an attack by the GNAA , Moot (maintainer of the site) could no longer fund the site on just donations.
After it closed many 4chan users flocked to the next best thing, 5chan. 5chan was really good overall and had several more boards, but just didn't have the same humor that 4chan ever had, and really just ended up sucking. In my opinion. haha.
Oddly enough, even though many did not think it would happen, 4chan is back, and now planning to be better than ever.
I've talked to two of the people on the 4chan team (one being Moot), and I was told that 4chan will now be focusing on competing with 2chan. 2chan is the original Japanese site that 4chan is based on, so essentially 4chan is basically the same except that the futaba script was translated and modified a bit. I've also been told that to be able to pay for bandwidth there will be some advertisements and they have devised other ways to raise money. Also anyone flooding the boards in excess or to fuck with bandwidth will be stopped more quickly now since there are about four times the amount of mods than there were before.
If many of you are not familiar with 4chan or 2chan at all, they are basically image boards with various different sub categories (anime, manga, guro, hentai) where you can post pictures and discuss with other people. Arguably the most famous board on 4chan was /b/ or Random where many Internet memes (or fads) such as the Nevada Girl and Happy Negro took off. There were also theme days such as Furry Fridays, Scat Saturday, and everybody’s favorite, Guro Sunday.
Anyways, thank you 4chan. Truly, without you I would have never been able to write articles on the Os-Tan or the Nevada Girl. I also wouldn't know Pedobear. And a country without Pedobear is a sad country.
This is all for now kids, gb2/b/. Also expect a Otakon report. At some point.
