  460. ==============================
  461.  
  462. The reason I decided to make this guide was primarily because I just wanted a reference for myself, but this can also to benefit all of you, if you find ED’s list of imageboards too hard to pallette. If you have an idea as to how I might make this guide more accessible, feel free to contact me.
  463. While I’m vain enough to share my opinions to the public, I don’t consider myself an authority on any of this, and I know that, at some points, I’m just blogging. I’m sorry if you find that annoying. I’d be happy to listen to your two cents on a particular forum, and I could even add what you’ve said, if you’d like me to.
  464.  
  465. ★ I’ve used a star to mark websites that I find demonstrate exceptional qualities.
  466.  
  467. I’ll evaluate the forums in these criteria:
  468. 1.      First Impressions
  469. 2.      Navigation
  470. 3.      Content
  471. 4.      Attractors
  472. 5.      Making Contact
  473. 6.      Knowledge of Users
  474. 7.      Making Contact
  475.  
  476. I’ve also omitted most of the honeypots and porn, as their decline and being taken down is probably inevitable, and they have no substance, anyway. To expand on that, I’d estimate that there’s more than a few hundred sites comparable to an imageboard made just for porn, and I don’t really want to dredge up that stuff.
  477. Due to how ephemeral their addresses are, I did not put in the effort to include sites accessible by means of Tor.
  478.  
  479. If you’re not familiar with most these kind of sites, please be aware that the content on anonymous boards strikes a stark contrast with the rest of internet communities in terms of content and conventions. While I suppose you don’t have to, please visit each site with an open mind and a willingness to afford time reading a thread prior to posting. In addition to that, please take the time to learn and conform to the board's culture. Pay attention to the milieu of the board, and also remember that any sort of idea can be posted, thus it is very likely that you will be offended in some way.

  481. ==============================
  482. 2.      Imageboards
  483. ==============================
  484.  
  485. 02ch
  486. https://02ch.in/
  487. Russian
  488.  
  489. This site is not affiliated with 02chsu, apparently. I guess the site owner just liked the name and took. It’s very lazily made, though.
  490. It’s a shame there aren’t an infinite amount of numbers, or else the site owner could have come up with something new and original.
  491.  
  492. ------------------------------------------------------
  493.  
  494. 02ch.net
  495. http://02ch.net/
  496.  
  497. Another attempt at reviving 02ch
  498.  
  499. ------------------------------------------------------
  500.  
  501. 02chsu
  502. http://02ch.su/
  503. Russian
  504.  
  505. There’s not much to see. This imageboard uses a the default template, and it has all the regular boards.
  506.  
  507. ------------------------------------------------------
  508.  
  509. 0chan
  510. http://0chan.cc/
  511. Russian
  512.  
  513. From what I’ve seen, 0chan has a reputation as one of the more popular Russian-speaking boards. If iichan is Wakachan’s Russian counterpart, then 0chan is probably 7chan’s Russian equivalent.
  514. When posting, you can utilize the buttons above the posting field that input the BBcode for you. What you might not notice is that you can cycle through all the banners at the top by pressing the circle icon.
  515.  
  516. You can see the instant 0-chan script being demonstrated on the /meta/ board. You’ll find that this script is somewhat popular among Russian imageboards.
  517.  
  518. ------------------------------------------------------
  519.  
  520. 0-chan
  521. http://0-chan.ru/
  522. Russian
  523.  
  524. The former address of 0chan. You’ll find the site is still there, but you cannot interact with it.
  525.  
  526. ------------------------------------------------------
  527.  
  528. 0chan.cf
  529. http://0chan.cf/
  530.  
  531. Another site that attempts to emulate 0chan
  532.  
  533. ------------------------------------------------------
  534.  
  535. 0chan.esy
  536. http://0chan.esy.es/
  537.  
  538. The site isn’t really an imageboard, as it redirects you to the address 0-chan.ru, but this page makes its attempting to emulate 0-chan much more obvious.
  539.  
  540. ------------------------------------------------------
  541.  
  542. 100l
  543. http://100l.yzi.me/
  544.  
  545. Another forgettable site, unless you haven’t seen the script that it employs, yet, but the lack of content makes even that worthless.
  546.  
  547. ------------------------------------------------------
  548.  
  549. 1337chan
  550. http://1337chan.tk/
  551. Russian
  552.  
  553. On the homepage, you might find that the site has a sort of radio that plays automatically, assuming that you haven’t augmented your browser with a script that may suppress that sort of stuff. The site owner and/or whoever maintains Ghost Anime Radio seems to like J-Pop, anime OSTs, and EDM—typical nerd stuff.
  554. It’s a good thing Russian text doesn’t permit leetspeak, or else that would be yet another thing to add to the list of bothersome things this site boasts. The site’s posting is similar to that of The Department of Redundancy Department in that the site owner has added an image at the top-right corner, but instead of a flower, the owner has decided to add an anime girl, presumably his waifu.
  555.  
  556. ------------------------------------------------------
  557.  
  558. 1chan
  559. http://www.1chan.net/
  560.  
  561. A really small board made by a train enthusiast for the discussion of trains. The site also has its own little Overchan, if you want to check that out.
  562.  
  563. ------------------------------------------------------
  564.  
  565. 1chan.inach
  566. http://1chan.inach.org/
  567. Russian
  568.  
  569. At first glance, you might notice the upvote/downvote system that the site has, along with the star icon, which I’m assuming is a way to toggle a post as your favorite. It functions like an imageboard, though, as you can add an image to your posts; however, similar to /what/, you aren’t compelled to add a photo to your post.
  570.  
  571. ------------------------------------------------------
  572.  
  573. 1Eden
  574. http://www.1eden.com/
  575.  
  576. I have nothing against someone trying to deviate from “tradition” with what I suppose you could call an “experimental” board, but the site is undeniably bad. At this point, why not just make an actual forum or a subreddit or something?
  577.  
  578. ------------------------------------------------------
  579.  
  580. 1chanus
  581. https://1chan.us/
  582.  
  583. What makes this site special is that you have to get an invite in order to post, which you can obtain by going onto the IRC and begging for an invite. However, as you might expect, there is very little that justifies its being exclusive. The moderators, having come from /b/, I imagine, have a very low quality threshold. You may have stumbled upon Anon-IB while browsing this guide, and if you were interested in that, you might be happy to know that this forum boasts the same feature of creating your own board. This one has a slightly larger userbase than anon-IB, so that’s something to enjoy. That particular feature might be the only reason that justifies its being exclusive, as moderation and general quality control on the boards coming through is easier that way. It’s pretty inactive, though.
  584.  
  585. ------------------------------------------------------
  586.  
  587. 10ch
  588. http://10ch.org/gazou/
  589. Japanese and English
  590.  
  591. What 10ch tries to do is assemble a sort of amalgam of English and Japanese content through a built-in feature that automatically translates English content into Japanese and vice versa. The content isn’t really that good, though, to be honest, but if you want to mingle with some anonymous, Japanese strangers and a bunch of other weebs, then go ahead.
  592.  
  593. I just rechecked the site, and it seems to be down. We’ll see how long that lasts, but if it stays down too long, I’ll go ahead and bury it in the graveyard :’(
  594.  
  595. ------------------------------------------------------
  596.  
  597. 10ch.ru
  598. http://10ch.ru/
  599. Russian
  600.  
  601. This site is partly affiliated with a sort of professional blog, and it kind of shows. Well, it functions fine enough, and it’s rather active, it looks like. The site is built off of Kusaba X.
  602.  
  603. ------------------------------------------------------
  604.  
  605. 10chan
  606. http://ech.su/
  607. http://10ch.ru/
  608. Russian
  609.  
  610. The site owner seems to have nixed the sidebar, but beyond that, there’s nothing to really report about the site. It seems like you can create your own board, the same way that you might in Anon-IB, but I’m unsure as to how true that is.
  611.  
  612. ------------------------------------------------------
  613.  
  614. 13channel
  615. http://13ch.nl/
  616.  
  617. The site uses its own unique script, but I’m unsure what it’s called.
  618.

  620.  
  621. 2cat
  622. http://2cat.twbbs.org/
  623. Japanese
  624.  
  625. The classic imageboard layout with a few modifications in order to to make the board look a tiny bit nicer.
  626.  
  627. ------------------------------------------------------
  628.  
  629. 2--ch
  630. https://2--ch.ru/
  631. https://2-ch.su/
  632. Russian
  633.  
  634. It’s easy to miss the second dash. Weirdly enough, the site’s introduction accommodates Japanese speakers but not English speakers. Note that there are two addresses for this site.
  635.  
  636. ------------------------------------------------------
  637.  
  638. 2-chru
  639. https://2-chru.net/
  640. Russian
  641.  
  642. It’s hard to tell whether this site is associated with 2-ch or not, but it most likely is. Or, rather, both are so considerably vapid that they are identical by not modifying the default theme or content at all.
  643.  
  644. ------------------------------------------------------
  645.  
  646. 2ch-an
  647. http://www.2ch-an.ru/
  648.  
  649. It seems to be remarkably similar to 10ch.ru, but if that’s the case, then this site is rather redundant. It lacks most of the bells and whistles 10ch.ru boasts and is much less active.
  650.  
  651. ------------------------------------------------------
  652.  
  653. 2so
  654. http://2so.ch/
  655. Russian
  656.  
  657. You’ll notice that the homepage is a Lorem Ipsum text accompanied by a stale meme that I speculate was probably popularized on /r9k/, though I’ve reached the scope of my knowledge about memes, honestly (though that isn’t really a bad thing), so I can’t guide you on that. The site is flagrantly unfinished, and the site owner doesn’t even have the decency to hide behind the pretense that it’s in-the-making or an experimental board. Yet, in spite of all that, the site owner manages to create a lazy tribute to himself in MS paint.
  658.  
  659. ------------------------------------------------------
  660.  
  661. 2watch
  662. http://2watch.in/
  663. Russian
  664.  
  665. It’s evident that the site owner didn’t do much to promote his site. Despite that, he made the effort to make a banner for each board, which is cute, I suppose.
  666.  
  667. ------------------------------------------------------
  668.  
  669. 23ch
  670. http://23ch.ru/
  671. Russian
  672.  
  673. The site seems to be about cars. Like a lot of these forums, the site manages to look fairly distinct, but it falls flat in terms of weight and elegance. The site appears to have been a modification of teh Tinyboard Script.
  674.  
  675. ------------------------------------------------------
  676.  
  677. 30ch
  678. http://30ch.ru/
  679. Russian
  680.  
  681. This site is a tiny bit more active than most of the more obscure Russian imageboards, but that isn’t saying much. Very little is noteworthy about this site.
  682.  
  683. ------------------------------------------------------
  684.  
  685. 314chan - Site is broken
  686. https://www.314chan.org/314/
  687.  
  688. You could hardly call this a functioning imageboard. While the vast majority of the site is evidently broken, the site owner has managed to leave at least the boards up. I imagine his reasoning is that this will be for the benefit of future generations. It’s basically the one, static webpage.
  689. Let’s just wait ‘till this guy gets his shit together—or not. Yet another inevitable, dead link to add to this guide that.
  690.

  693. 314n ★
  694. http://hii.pm/
  695. http://314n.org/
  696. Russian and English
  697.  
  698. This is a particularly interesting board in that emulates a command prompt.
  699. Note that you have to register before you do anything. You can do this by typing in the command “REGISTER -u <username> -p <password>.” By typing “HELP,” you can find a list of commands you can utilize. Just fill in the blank, and you’re good to go.
  700. Despite using what appears to be a text-centric interface, you’ll find images can be appended to the post. The images open up externally, however. As far as I can discern, there’s no way to subvert the interface, so expect to spend some time adjusting if you aren’t used to doing this; though, I should think that there’s a good chance that you are familiar with at least the rudiments of a terminal, considering that you are reading this guide.
  701.  
  702. ------------------------------------------------------
  703.  
  704. 38chan
  705. http://38chan.net/
  706.  
  707. Well, if everything keeps going the way they are, and while you might have your affairs, rest easy knowing 38chan is always there for you, like a homely spouse. While it may be small and slow, at least you don’t need some userscript to augment the experience: there’s inline extension, exlinks, and even a blogboard, all for you. Now, isn’t that nice?
  708.  
  709. ------------------------------------------------------
  710.  
  711. 410chan
  712. http://410chan.org/
  713. Russian
  714.  
  715. The site looks nice enough, but there isn’t really much going on. It’s associated with iichan, and apparently it also has a radio station.
  716. Probably the most redeeming feature of what’s a pretty average site is how vulgar the users and even the site owner manages to be. That’s not saying much, though.

  723. 420chan ★
  724. http://420chan.org/
  725.  
  726. You’ll find that the site’s interface is radically different from that of 4chan and most imageboards, and the effect was to distance itself from the absurd weebishness of imageboard tradition. While perhaps a bit unappealing, it is distinctly Western. The obvious reference to stoner culture in the name indicates that the site is basically an appropriation of the site owners two biggest influences: the topic of drugs, which you’ll find on the typical drug forum and the casual, meandering discussion of most imageboards, the fusion of past and future content that has been the group’s ideology achieves here its grandest (and perhaps only) statement. Such an interface makes the site look a bit seedy, but the site actually has a lot of integrity: there are very few advertisements and nothing else that could be thought of as malicious.
  727.  
  728. The site also brags a number of topics that you won’t find on 4chan, but that’s namely drugs. The site’s traffic is pretty considerable. You’ll find this is one of the most active forums for casual drug discussion, and really, the sort of discussion that goes on here is fairly unique.

  736. The site accommodates English users, but the fact is that if you don’t know Japanese, you’ll have no idea what’s going on.
  737.  
  738. To quote the admin on noko, “You know the noko function that is found in FAGLAND aka 4chan is EXZATcly the same here? also >$no to quote a hole post or >[quote gose here] because >>$no is for the previous thread or just another thread, and not for a reply on the thread.”

  752. 4chan ★
  753. http://4chan.org/
  754.  
  755. 4chan is practically a household name, thanks to the media, and for that reason, there’s actually a half-good chance that your mother knows about the site. For most of us, our relationship with 4chan is easily very comparable to that with our parents. There’s about a sixty-six percent chance, considering at least a third of the *chan population is below the age of sixteen, that you probably learned about that site as a child. If you don’t fall under that criteria, there’s a good chance that you’re mentally stuck in high school. As a child’s mind develops, the child begins to recognize flaws that are fundamental in human beans; the figures which children once idolized, their parents, now become grossly flawed, and so the children reject them.
  756.  
  757. The fact is that /b/ is wonderful stream of new information combined with a vast userbase that doesn’t have to deal with the constraints of reputation or shame. Or, rather, it would be if it weren’t for the overzealous mods with their arbitrary rules and the fact that you start to get deja vu after a while. Children enjoy repetition much more than adults, so that’s one theory that you could probably ascribe /b/’s shittiness to. It’s one of my favorite remarks that repetition kills the soul, and I don’t think there’s anything more fitting to describe it than with that.
  758.  
  759. If normies are just too much to handle, and you really, really hate those damn normies, here’s a few options from yours truly that you can choose from to escape those prying bastards: install Aether, browse Usenet (it’s ironic that everyone suggests this, because it’s a running joke that AOL and normies ruined Usenet); emulate the World Wide Web, but make sure that it only exists parallel to the net so that it can't be googled up; try mailing lists, try gophernet, dial up your local BBS; and, if all else fails, revert to technology from yesteryear and just see what sticks. You could also become a hermit, like my father, and cut yourself off from the internet and meditate until you find enlightenment/die.
  760.  
  761. There’s not much here here that you can’t find anywhere else, topic-wise. What makes 4chan unique, besides its influence over popular culture, is its tremendous popularity.
  762.  
  763. Notable boards:
  764. /b/ - Without this board, memes probably wouldn’t be so deeply ingrained in popular culture. There are a considerably greater amount, probably about half of all traffic, of users here than on the rest of the site.
  765. /s4s/ - Shit 4chan Shitposts
  766. /jp/ - They like to have meta threads almost as much as they do Touhou

  776.  
  777. 4clams

  780. 4clams is the thickest, creamiest English imageboard on the web.

  793.  
  794. Let’s ignore that broken <img> with the "Logo" alt tag and the fact that most of the links redirect you to another site, which is just an ad click tracker. Those sleazy, cunning Soviet bastards. Utterly deplorable.

  806. 711chan
  807. http://www.711chan.org/
  808.  
  809. Presumably named after the convenience stop.
  810. Unlike 7chan, the userbase here is conscious enough of themselves to act cynical and parody their culture, but they still do nothing about it; of course, the same could be said about pretty much any component of imageboard culture, but 711chan operates at a lower level of quality, which is saying something. The site is slow and relatively passive, but they cater to /b/tards. Shockingly, this site is rather popular, but like I said, it’s more of a sleeper.
  811.  
  812. ------------------------------------------------------
  813.  
  814. 7chan
  815. https://7chan.org/
  816.  
  817. I’d call 7chan shit, but considering most imageboards are, that’s a given. Pretty much all the boards there are nothing new. The reason anyone would visit 7chan is because they’re so frustrated at 4chan that they couldn’t stand posting there. Ironically, the board is so full of new people, about half the posts, for the most part on the porn boards, and most of the site is just new people asking for sources even when they're in plain sight or they can just search it up easily. It’s like if someone took /b/ and split it up into its own forum.

  824. 7clams
  825. http://7clams.org/
  826.  
  827. What really distinguishes 7clams from Lupchan as a forum dedicated to ironic posting is the animated background and playful music which automatically streams, two features that are much more reminiscent of what a site’s /z/ would be like; whereas, Lupchan is more devoted to what the community offers. While one might consider 7clams the superior forum initially, the fact that 7clams puts less emphasis on user-generated content makes this forum the more archaic of the two.
  828.  
  829. In actuality, most of 7clams traffic consists of people who like to link the images and music offsite, believe it or not. Despite that, 7clams is much more obscure than the Lup’.

  838. https://8ch.net/
  839.  
  840. There was a board called AnonIB board sort of had a similar concept. Too bad it’s been taken down.
  841.  
  842. It’s notable that Hot Wheels has developed such a pragmatic, hands-off policy. It doesn’t really change anything as far as discussion goes, but at least he doesn’t consume a many resources as 4chan does trying to mess with its users.
  843.  
  844. I find it hard to synthesize what I’ve heard about the site and find a reasonable conclusion right now, mainly because of this hangover, but if I had to share some speculation, it would be that the main flaw in 4chan and 8chan’s content is because one of imageboard culture’s fundamental qualities is meme culture, so, for that reason, imageboards are inherently senseless. If I can hark back to Usenet, I wouldn’t be surprised if the userbase there that flagrantly disregarded etiquette and flamed each other with absurd non sequiturs is probably is a major part of the people (or at least a part of the culture) that ruined serious discussion on imageboards.
  845.  
  846. It’s a good site if you want to create an echo chamber for yourself, or something. Pretty much Reddit but for even bigger nerds.

  855.  
  856. You may have seen this link spammed on some of the Waka boards. I shouldn’t even list this, but somehow I feel compelled to cover all my bases. Or, at least, some of my bases, until I finally get around to the Jap boards.

  859.  
  860. 89chan
  861. http://89chan.com/
  862.  
  863. The selling point is that it’s completely unmoderated (I wonder how long that can last). The site deals mostly with porn.
  864.

  866.  
  867. 9ch
  868. http://9ch.ru/
  869. Russian
  870.  
  871. The site was formerly very popular among the niche crowd in Russia that likes to consume content through imageboards, the reason being that the site could stand as its own little Overchan. Unfortunately, the site’s catalog is large but not maintained, and a vast majority of the linked boards are dead.
  872.  
  873. ------------------------------------------------------
  874.  
  875. 929chan
  876.  
  877. Presumably for all the people who spend twelve hours every day of the work week working; e.g. it’s pretty dormant.

  880.  
  881. 99chan
  882. https://99chan.org/
  883.  
  884. I heard the literature board was pretty good for books, but from what I can tell, it’s all downhill, now. To top that off, an awful, eye-raping default theme; excessively-subdivided, obnoxiously-specific boards; and several stickies that consume pretty much the whole page on every board. If you haven’t already heard of this site, as far as good content goes, you’ve missed the train, because it’s pretty dead.
  885.

  887.  
  888. A-chan
  889. http://a-chan.org/
  890. Russian
  891.  
  892. The “A” stands for Asylum, Autism, and Anonymity, apparently. It looks like a nice enough site, though. There’s a consistent palette, the spoilers work cleanly, quoting works great, and the inline image expansion works out really nicely.
  893.  
  894. ------------------------------------------------------
  895.  
  896. Allchan
  897. https://allchan.su/
  898. Russian
  899.  
  900. Not to be mistaken for All Chans, this site boasts the same feature as Dvachso, where the amount of new posts made is recorded by the site, but rather than having a sidebar, the new posts are recorded at the top.

  912. Altarchan
  913. http://91.222.139.85/
  914. Russian
  915.  
  916. You can tell the site owner is devoted to his site, because he hasn’t even bothered to purchase a domain. The site does have an interesting way of organising boards. In a way, it’s more comparable to a tagging system. You can toggle any number of the fourteen boards, and you see the content posted under those topics.

  920. Amychan

  927.  
  928. Anarchochan
  929. http://anarchochan.comule.com/
  930.  
  931. I would be lying if I said that the anarchist ideology makes sense to me. In fact, nihilism confuses me. Not so much in itself but in the context of those that announce how they subscribe to that idea. It’s very ironic, considering that existentialism purports, but I’m no authority on existentialism or ontology, despite the fact that the former is a very narrow and rather homogeneous area of thought, but just because you’re cynical about the way you live your life doesn’t mean anything has changed.

  933. ------------------------------------------------------
  934.  
  935. Animuchan
  936. http://animuchan.net/
  937.  
  938. There’s no telling whether this site will be down temporarily or permanently, but it’s most likely the latter. I’m keeping this up just in case.
  939. It looks like the site owner found it funny to leave us a non sequitur like, “Nothing here but us chickens,” but I’m no authority on what’s funny.

  945. Russian and English
  946.  
  947. In order to see the site, you have to register, but the process is a simple matter of making a password and solving a captcha, and your posting on the site is entirely anonymous. You don’t even have to make a username. I believe the site uses the Orphereus imageboard script.

  956. archive.anon-ib.su
  957.  
  958. If you’re one of those internet nerds who's done some internet wandering, you may have come across some dead links referring you to what was formerly Anon-IB. Well, that’s no matter, now, as Anon-IB has a whopping four domains all directing you towards the same site as well as an entire static backup of this website (that’s the last link, if you weren’t aware). The reason for this change of scenery is apparently because of the high amount of people transgressing site rules. The rules have been modified in accordance with that ordeal.
  959.  
  960. Anon-IB is basically 8chan if it were ran by a total dunce. Apparently, you can create your own board or something along the lines of that, but there’s no intimation on the site as to how that works. You can figure it out, if you like. The site’s inactive, but come back after a few months, and you might find something new.

  972. Alphachan
  973. http://alphachan.org/
  974. Russian
  975.  
  976. Also stylized as αchan, I guess what makes this site special is its slightly-modified template of some popular script out there. The site is sort of a reaction to the poor quality of Apachan, but there really is no discernable difference.
  977.  
  978. ------------------------------------------------------
  979.  
  980. Apachan (imageboard)
  981. http://www.apachan.net/b
  982. Russian
  983.  
  984. To quote the home page, “Apachan is a typical example of the democratic dictatorship that manages to be present in most active imageboards, which consists of the voluntary moderation of the founders, taking into account the views of their Anonymous userbase.”
  985. Too bad it’s dead—and in Russian.

  993. The site doesn’t actually seem to host any discussion, though, at the moment. Hopefully Al-CIAda didn’t get to them. That would be tragic. Or am I thinking of a different country? Ah, they’re all the same.

  997. Bashorgu
  998. http://bashorgu.net.ru/
  999. Russian
  1000.  
  1001. It seems to use a similar template as Shitstorm, but it’s hard to tell what this site’s about. I’m tempted to say this is a novelty site of sorts meant to offend those that are easily offended.

  1005. Aurorachan
  1006. http://aurorachan.net/
  1007.  
  1008. The site seems to be mostly devoted to furry and cosplay is what I initially had thought, but that isn’t the case, it seems; though, it might as well be the case, considering the sort of crowd this site pull sin. A Desuchan affiliate.

  1050. BBW, of course, is an acronym for Big, Big Women or Big, Beautiful Women; I always forget which one. They’re very careful about not offending the site’s random bypassers, which is very commendable.

  1062. Bitardchan

  1069.  
  1070. Britfags
  1071. http://www.britfa.gs/
  1072.  
  1073. Precisely what the address reads. This place is more like a continuation of Britchan, another British imageboard that happened to be shut down. In my mind, if you’re from the UK, then you listen to rave, garage, or jungle music, so I should think that’s probably what most of the site’s discussion consists of. /*/ is the funposting board, though you’ll find that the site owner respects himself too much to deviate far from the site’s typical theme.

  1111. Chan.type2
  1112. http://chan.type2.ru/
  1113. Russian

  1115. More than a time capsule than anything, considering how far the posts date back. The site is made to discuss the card game Magic.

  1118.  
  1119. Chan4chan
  1120. http://chan4chan.com/
  1121.  
  1122. To be honest, it resembles talkboard are phpBB, but it retains enough qualities comparable to an imageboard that I am compelled to include this. The community is unironically imature and underaged, though, but when you’re desperate, anything goes.
  1123. Actually, the interface and content, to me at least, is very nostalgic, but I find it hard to stand the content.

  1156.  
  1157. Cirno
  1158. http://chiru.no/cirno/
  1159.  
  1160. Yet another site that utilizes the Doushio script, this one is vastly obscure, but it has a number of boards rather than two or one, which makes the site’s script pretty much worthless. It’s pronounced “Chill no.”
  1161.

  1164. Chaos.cpu
  1165. https://chaos.cyberpunk.us/

  1167.  
  1168. A Russian cyberpunk board. Naturally, their mascot is Lain, as though we haven’t seen a site pull that one before.
  1169. I never could get into the whole cyberpunk thing. At this point, I could delve into a huge nerd rant, but I’ll save you from that ordeal.

  1174. http://demo.claire.ws/
  1175. http://claire.ws/b/
  1176. Russian
  1177.  
  1178. This site is an extension of Claire’s personal site, and, in that way, it is very similar to 4x13’s textboard, but this one is an imageboard rather than a textboard. Unfortunately, Claire wasn’t as lucky as 4x13 in terms of her userbase, which is very small and seems to have a propensity for sharing CP.

  1189.  
  1190. CMWP, LLC. Discussion Board
  1191. http://ch.cmwp.com/
  1192.  
  1193. It’s unknown what CMWP or LLC stand for, but one thing's for sure: no less than two Piña coladas and no loafing.
  1194. The site essentially uses the textboard model but features a convenient option to post images. This is the realm of Swordopolis, one of the only fellows that has felt this imageboard is worth investing in.
  1195.  
  1196. ------------------------------------------------------
  1197.  
  1198. Cryptochan
  1199. https://cryptochan.org/boards/
  1200. Russian
  1201.  
  1202. Cryptochan is a website that hosts the discussion of several of the most popular cryptocurrencies, and those that don’t have their own, special board can be discussed on the random board. Note that, in the top-right corner the site records the increase or decrease in the value of said cryptocurrencies, and if you click on the, you’ll see a chart comparing their values to the Euro and US Dollar.

  1206. CuatroChocios
  1207. http://www.cuatrochan.org/

  1210. Despite being Spanish, the boards and even the site motto is in German, which is an odd combination. Their mascot is corn.

  1214. D3w
  1215. http://board.d3w.org/
  1216. Russian
  1217.  
  1218. While the content isn’t exceptional, at least the site owner made the call to only have a few boards, which is rather smart.
  1219.  
  1220. ------------------------------------------------------
  1221.  
  1222. Dejimachan
  1223. http://dejimachan.org/
  1224. Dutch
  1225.  
  1226. Another imageboard made to cater to a specific country. It’s attempt at distancing itself from the traditional imageboard model is laughable. The site owner is hardly—what you might say—a shrewd creator.
  1227.  
  1228. ------------------------------------------------------
  1229.  
  1230. DameIB - Dame Image Board
  1231. http://dameib.net/
  1232.  
  1233. I’m afraid there’s not much to say about this imageboard. The palette is nice, albeit a tad too bright. The image hovering feature is pretty convenient.
  1234.  
  1235. The files board is simply that.
  1236.  
  1237. I feel as though the guro board is a bit redundant. As long as Gurochan up, there really isn’t any room or point for competition. On top of that, it’s pretty inactive, and most of the content in there has found its way to GuroChan at one time or another, but I guess it’s an apt contingency plan, considering how the site has shut down twice, now, for no real reason.
  1238.  
  1239. It’s very odd, but the site owner seems to have decided to isolate the boards that can be accessed on Wakachan. For example, if you click on the Ghibli board, you will not be able to access the site’s other boards through the site interface, except for four other boards.
  1240.  
  1241. Notable boards:
  1242. /z/ - Zabaglione

  1247. Deep Hole
  1248. http://the-deep.hol.es/
  1249. Russian
  1250.  
  1251. Certainly an interesting address. Overall, the site kind tries to have a sort of esoteric air, but the content doesn’t really match that. The site itself looks pretty good.
  1252. In addition to the two boards, the site has a small, little Overchan that takes you to some of the better Russian imageboards and the Wakachan Russian board.
  1253.  
  1254. Boards:
  1255. /b/ - random

  1260. Demochan
  1261. http://demochan.org/faq.html
  1262.  
  1263. Demochan prides itself on taking the act of removing the benevolent dictatorship from the *chan equation. Well, the dictatorship is still present, but it’s hidden behind a collection of brand-new board owners that cycle out every week via the magic of representative democracy, chosen by their online peers, thus the site’s name. It’s very similar to Anon-IB, or even 8chan, if you stretch it enough, but the execution is done fairly well.

  1267. Der Photolab
  1268. http://photo.animepunch.org/
  1269. German and English
  1270.  
  1271. Actually, the language spoken on this site is primarily English, but with name like that, I felt it would be safer just to say they speak both languages.
  1272. The site seems to be associated with a group called Anime Punch. Really, though, it doesn’t seem like they do much besides revel in popular nerd culture.

  1279. Desuchan, formed by Dark Master Schmidt, exists to sate all your Rozen Maiden needs. It’s been around for a considerable amount of time and is mostly host to fans of the show. It has numerous boards beyond that which is dedicated to the show. forgetaho .

  1309. Dobrochan
  1310. http://dobrochan.com/

  1312.  
  1313. This site is perhaps one of the most popular and active Russian imageboards, among 0chan and Wakachan’s Russian-speaking board.
  1314. The sidebar will record how many new posts have been made on the site. The forum uses the Hanabira imageboard script, which is very obscure.
  1315.

  1318. Dollship
  1319. http://dollship.ru/
  1320. Russian
  1321.  
  1322. If you click on the links at the top, they will direct you to the Volgach imageboard, isitup, and the site’s own imageboard (which seems to be Volgach discussion), respectively. The site also has a collection of the constituents of several imageboards hidden under the /vault/ directory.

  1325.  
  1326. Doushio ★
  1327. http://doushio.com/moe/
  1328.  
  1329. This is the boards where all the tripfags post.
  1330.  
  1331. If the site is active at the time you log on, you will most certainly notice that this site boasts a special feature in which you can see the poster write their post in real time. In addition to that, the site only has a threshold of two pages, so don’t bother making a new thread, unless one of them reaches the post limit. The site’s script seems to be a modification of the TinyBoard script. You’ll find that Youtube links and images open internally, meaning that you don’t open up a new page when you click on them.
  1332.  
  1333. While certainly not the most heavily trafficked imageboard out there, the users there basically treat the forum like IRC, to the point where it’s faster than many 4chan boards, in stark contrast to 4chan where moot implemented a delay between posts partly because of the fact that people had been posting on 4chan like one would in a chatroom.
  1334.  
  1335. The sort of content you’ll find on here is considerably similar to that of 4chan’s /jp/ or tohno, so it won’t be too hard to adjust.
  1336.  
  1337. Directories:
  1338. /moe/ - The actual forum
  1339. /cards/ - A shitty clone of a shitty card game remade with /jp/ memes

  1358. Dvach
  1359. http://dvach.hut2.ru/

  1362. This site should not be mistaken for Dvachso, which is exceptionally substantial in terms of quality.

  1370. Apparently the successor to a site that has been shut down, this board pretty much has the same old *chan stuff. The site uses the Instant 0-chan script.

  1374. Ernstchan
  1375. https://ernstchan.com/
  1376. German
  1377.  
  1378. The site owner makes a good call limiting the forum down to five boards, two of which seem to be just novelty boards. The site theme looks good. Nothing exceptionally bad or good.

  1388.  
  1389. Eternitychan
  1390. http://eternitychan.org/
  1391.  
  1392. It looks alright, but considering how poor-quality most of these imageboards are, a half-decent board can sometimes be a miracle.
  1393.  
  1394. ------------------------------------------------------
  1395.  
  1396. Everfree Forest
  1397. http://efchan.net/
  1398.  
  1399. At the moment, the site is pretty empty, having just the one board. The site owner promises us that there’s more to come, but one wonders whether this site is worth the investment. It’s a board devoted to ponies, but the posting isn’t strictly ponies, like the other forums, which makes the site very flexible and a good amount of potential, though it only really benefits the pony audience.
  1400. The site almost makes me think of Bun or Ota with its playfulness.
  1401.

  1413. http://exachan.com/
  1414. Russian
  1415.  
  1416. The posting has a few presets that accommodate users unaware of BBCode. The site is a bit dated, considering the front page still quotes the whole “Legion” thing.

  1427.  
  1428. Fchan
  1429. http://fchan.us/
  1430.  
  1431. This is a furry board, and the site layout looks rather nostalgic, at least to me. This is one of the only English-speaking board that uses the script which records how many posts have been made in the sidebar.

  1443. Fighting Amphibians - Boards are closed
  1444. http://boards.fightingamphibians.org/
  1445.  
  1446. Fighting Amphibians sounds like a highschool football team, but the only sports that these nerds play is on their computers. They’re a bunch of video game nerds, and this forum is sort of like a frat house for the guild.
  1447.  
  1448. There are two interesting features about this site: you can “rep” a post, which I imagine is sort of like an upvote/downvote system, and you can sign into the website through your Steam account, which, if I’m not mistaken, will fill in the name field and append a picture of your Steam avatar beside that.
  1449.  
  1450. While all the boards are locked, this is easy to subvert by simply typing in the board you want into the site address.
  1451.

  1476. Flac-chan
  1477. http://flac-chan.org/
  1478.  
  1479. I’d like to think I have sufficient knowledge about digital media and how we might consume them, but considering how many resources indulging in flac rather than just settling for 320kps consumes, the whole endeavor is just absurd. Though, in a case like vectors, I can kind of reappropriate my appreciation for clean edges to the flac-chan endeavor, but I don’t know about you. I would imagine a lot of discussion about merchandise would go on here, as that’s the main issue that listening to flac brings up, but it looks like not very many people have thought to post here.

  1483. Flandere - Posting is closed
  1484. http://flandre.us/sh/wakaba.html

  1493. http://xn--4i8haa.tk/
  1494. http://???.tk/
  1495.  
  1496. The site is little more than a shoutbox for the random messages of miscellaneous foot fetishists. Despite being discussion-oriented, we can see that the site’s being so desolate compels the same sort of content as the comment section of a blog. With that said, perhaps shoutboxes and comment sections are made in order to give the illusion of activity than encourage discussion.
  1497. The content on this site, I should note, through the effort of devoted posters and passersbys, is particularly absurd and esoteric, making me think of GNFOS but more interesting and funny. The second address, reading xn--4i8haa, represents the unicode character for bread three times.

  1510.  
  1511. I find more of these /jp/ spinoffs everyday. While the /g/ community, naturally, is the most technically skilled, there is no doubt that the /jp/ community tends to be more self-conscious, which gives these people the impetus to consume and create all these new, redundant boards.
  1512.  
  1513. There are way too many boards on this site.

  1519. Russian
  1520.  
  1521. I found that the /b/ board on this site gives me a bit of deja vu from 02ch and Carissa’s board, so I imagine that what we’re seeing is spam.
  1522. It’s precisely what you think it is: a furry imageboard for Russians, and there’s not much more. With a name like that, you’dt nothin, hin’po that this sometime  essled chan faget

  1525.  
  1526. Futaba Channel ★
  1527. http://www.2chan.net/
  1528. Japanese
  1529.  
  1530. Curiously, in contrast with 2channel, Futaba is rarely covered by commercial websites or media or with anything, really. I think we all know about a few of the memes from there, such as Suzuran, OS-tans, and Yaranaika, but beyond that, Futaba is just a world of its own, with its own little board culture, without all the reports and commentary from external sites that 4chan gets.
  1531.  
  1532. I’m not sure what they’re up to over there. It’s just about as much of a confusing mess as 4chan is. Well, there’s probably a rich culture of people spamming shift_jis culture and just wanting to become pretty women. From what I’ve heard, Futaba is shit.
  1533. If you were really curious, I suppose you could always subvert the bans via VPN, but while there are any number of English speakers happy to engage you, it would be a very difficult endeavor to understand what’s going on with that language barrier. It’s a labor that you’d have to be very passionate about to endure, which is just absurd, considering it’s just an imageboard. Most of the Futaba userbase probably browses the site casually, intent on some quick and easy amusement; you’d have to jump through numerous hoops daily in order to keep up, which is just ridiculous.
  1534.  
  1535. ------------------------------------------------------
  1536. Futaba ☆ Channel
  1537. http://xnmlqiwaio6bg6dtbjqb63rtoznvgeud5acxklccomv5yytefmda.b32.i2p.me/
  1538. Russian
  1539.  
  1540. The site endeavors to imitate Futaba Channel.The address is rather odd, considering i2p isn’t necessary to access the site.
  1541.  
  1542. ------------------------------------------------------
  1543.  
  1544. Futaba Channel/Futaba Channel - English Navigator
  1545. http://www.bluethree.us/futaba/

  1551. Futaboard
  1552. http://board.futakuro.com/
  1553. Japanese
  1554.  
  1555. I’m not really sure what the site’s about. It’s just some obscure forum for Japs.
  1556.  
  1557. Notable boards:

  1562.  
  1563. Gaika
  1564. http://gaika.ch/
  1565. Russian
  1566.  
  1567. If you’re unaware, Gadget Hackwrench is a Disney character from the Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers cartoon series. What her role in the series is, though, is probably irrelevant. The Russians have manifested a fondness for this anthropomorphised mouse, it seems.
  1568.

  1574. Gallo (Choice cuts)
  1575. http://gallo.host56.com/futaba/
  1576.  
  1577. The existence of this page is less to serve as a means to communicate and more as a way to showcase the traditional Futaba script. As Futaba is still around, let’s just assume apathetic is being pragmatic and saving this site for when that site and 1chan goes down.
  1578.  
  1579. ------------------------------------------------------
  1580.  
  1581. Gay NEETs from Outer Space
  1582. http://gnfos.com/
  1583.  
  1584. Also stylized as /gnfos/, or sometimes gnfoes, and trevchan on very special occasions. Imagine if a Warosu poster found /ota/ and then rediscovered Warosu.
  1585.  
  1586. The content is a bit juvenile, but it’s rather unique, and the Trevor roleplay is actually quite funny, I must admit.
  1587.  
  1588. If you’re not aware, the acronym GNFOS is an allusion to the cult classic, Gay Niggers from Outer Space, in which a group of alien niggers arrive on Earth from the planet Anus to discover Women. The group eradicates the females and leaves behind an ambassador to educate the male population on the homosexual way of life.
  1589. Drive is the film starring Ryan Gosling, if you didn’t know.
  1590.  
  1591. The site also has the card game that Doushio has.

  1593. Boards:

  1603. Chinese
  1604.  
  1605. I find it funny how many Chinese aristocrats are discovering the opulence and luxury of being an aristocrat. Are forums like this how Chinese yuppies decide to kill time? We can see the Chinese inducting a lot of American culture, while its own becomes stagnant. The same goes for many rich, Eastern nations, which is just tragic, because I’m really sick of listening these nation’s kitschy, American pop imitations, but that’s all that they’ve got, which is downright tragic.

  1608.  
  1609. GlauChan
  1610. https://www.glauchan.org/
  1611.  
  1612. A Summer Glau imageboard, Summer Glau being an actor that played in Firefly.
  1613. Glauchan uses a very nuanced fork of the typical Vichan script.

  1617. Gralactica
  1618. http://gralactica.com/3608
  1619. French
  1620.  
  1621. You may have noticed the tagging system, which works very similarly to Altarchan, but this site executes that feature de facto much better. Naturally, the boxes at the top replace the need for more than one site page. Along with the boards, this site has effaced the homepage, recording all the new posts at one side and site information on the other.
  1622.  
  1623. ------------------------------------------------------
  1624.  
  1625. Gurochan
  1626. https://gurochan.ch/
  1627.  
  1628. There’s something really absurd about how much the folks on Gurochan have had to put up with. There’s always some issue with spamming or their ISP.
  1629. It’s popular to reject and abase anyone who shows an enthusiasm for sexualized gore for a number of reasons. This can vary from the fact that teens find it cool to be interested in something provocative, like gore, though that’s ironic, because the same thing could be said for pedophelia, which is generally tolerated; or they sincerely find it perverse and revolting, for some reason. Gurochan and /b/ share an overlap in the sort of content there, so that’s another reason why people hate it, but the same could be said about anime.
  1630. The former most, to be honest, is probably entirely true. The posts can sometimes read like something written by deviantart users, except with guro, and they start dropping words like “psychopathy” and “insanity,” and that’s always very demanding to tolerate.

  1634. Hamstakilla ★
  1635. http://v2.hamstakilla.com/
  1636. Russian and English
  1637.  
  1638. If you’re familiar with the rapidshare catalog dojin.co, you’ll find that this site, though not really to my taste, is fairly similar but considerably better-executed. The tragedy is that this site has very little traffic. The site also has a 3D mode, which is a very interesting endeavor.
  1639. The site utilizes javascript, so be aware of that.

  1643. Haruhichan
  1644. http://haruhichan.tk/
  1645. Russian
  1646.  
  1647. Not to be mistaken with the tracker/forum/ of the same name, this site just uses Haruhi as their mascot. Naturally, the forum is vaguely Haruhi themed, but hardly enough to deserve recognition.
  1648.  
  1649. Hatsune.ru
  1650. http://hatsune.ru/
  1651. Russian
  1652.  
  1653. This is a vocaloid forum that manages to be halfway good, all things considered.

  1656.  
  1657. Hatechannel

  1665. Hispachan
  1666. https://www.hispachan.org/
  1667. Spanish
  1668.  
  1669. Like Dollars His if it were actual active. The site looks really nice, but that’s really only relevant if you know Spanish. You can discuss regional stuff here, if you happen to be in one of those countries.

  1688.  
  1689. Holmesduck
  1690. http://imageboard.holmesduck.com/
  1691. Russian
  1692.  
  1693. This is a board devoted to the webcomic series Homestuck. The site mostly links you off site, but there are two boards.
  1694. You’ll notice that the site has its own special kind of markup that lets you post what appears to be your zodiac signs, which I imagine is related to the web comic. In the top-left corner there is a recolor of what looks like a recolor of what looks like Butthead from Beavis and Butthead, which is odd.
  1695.  
  1696. Something about Homestuck and its content always gives me pause, and I feel really bad about the whole thing. Actually, it’s more like nausea.
  1697.  
  1698. Boards:

  1704. Horochan
  1705. http://horochan.ru/
  1706. Russian
  1707.  
  1708. The site utilizes its own custom script called the Mayuri Engine.
  1709. Once more, you have the markup presets at the top of the posting field. The most memorable feature of this site is the sidebar, which isn’t like the conventional sidebar that you might see on imageboards: the sidebar is much smaller and simpler. In the top-left corner of each post, you have the ability to search for the image through two services, which is a nice touch. The site seems to sample scripts that you may have seen on other imageboards, but unlike its contemporaries, it seems to find a good balance.
  1710. Overall, this site is very through. If it were my site, I would be rather proud of it.

  1714. Iccanobif’s Imageboard
  1715. http://iccanobif.altervista.org/sgb/imgboard.htm
  1716.  
  1717. Iccanobif, the site owner, is a veteran from before imageboards hit their apex in popularity. This site is one of the only remaining imageboards using the Futallaby script. However, iccanobif has modified it in two notable ways: the theme is changed out, and this site supports webm.
  1718. According to iccanobif, despite his site being dead, he likes to keep the site up because the hosting is free. While there are roughly twenty pages of content, most of them are just the same few guys that use the site as an image host, linking the images outside of the forum. This includes iccanobif, who enjoyed taking photographs of his cat before it died.
  1719.  
  1720. Ostensibly, iccanobif was an moderator for a particular forum, but he won’t disclose which or what kind of forum it was to me.
  1721.  
  1722. I’m not sure if I’m at liberty to divulge some of his online habits to you all, but I’ll say that he likes to frequent Gikopoi, so that’s your best bet if you’d like to chat him up sometime.

  1726. iichan
  1727. http://iichan.hk/
  1728. Russian
  1729.  
  1730. The site uses the Wakaba imgeboard script.
  1731. What makes this site notable is that this is one of the veterans of imageboard culture. The userbase, presumably, is fairly consistent in its posting, but I can’t really tell.
  1732. Here’s a history lesson for you. iichan had been made as a reaction to Dvach, but eventually, the site had succumb to very strict and arbitrary  moderation, which induced a great deal of the users to leave the site. The site owner, evidently, loves anime, which is evidenced by the fact that there are a great deal of boards on the site devoted to various anime series, which, unfortunately, spreads the site a little thin.

  1737. http://iiichan.net/boards/music/
  1738.  
  1739. iiichan, formerly foolchan (http://humblefool.net/, if you want to check it out on the waybackmachine), is the former project of a chiptune artist who operates under the moniker agargara or humblefool. Naturally, the one board he hosts is devoted to chiptunes and trackers. In the past years, as he’s put it, he’s lost interest in maintaining an imageboard, but he keeps the site up for posterity. Naturally, as he’s neglecting to preserve the site, there’s spam on there, and the board is fairly desolate. Posting is still open, so if you want to get into making chiptunes, this forum is a fairly good resource.

  1747. Yet another password-protected imageboard. I’m afraid I don’t have any clues to offer you as to how you might obtain a password.

  1750.  
  1751. Inach
  1752. http://inach.org/
  1753.  
  1754. The site looks fine enough, albeit a bit kitschy. There is only one functional board, and that is /b/. You’ll find that the site owner appropriated the textboard theme for /time/ and stuck it on there.
  1755.  
  1756. Notable boards:
  1757. /b/ - Random
  1758. /fm/ - Some sort of online radio

  1769. Intern3ts
  1770. http://www.intern3ts.com/
  1771.  
  1772. It’s more popular than it should be, but this site has some notable content. If you’re unaware, userbars are the things that you might stick on your signature if you were to post in a typical forum.
  1773.  
  1774. Notable boards:

  1781. Kanal4
  1782. http://www.kanal4.org/
  1783. Swedish
  1784.  
  1785. Along with the fact that it was hard to discern immediately that this site was a forum, the site layout is, while nice, very disorienting, but that fault is not that of the site’s as much as it is my own. It’s the most active Swedish board available, I think.
  1786.

  1789. Karachan
  1790. http://karachan.org/
  1791. Polish
  1792.  
  1793. From what I discern, it seems like the site has been suspended for distributing the kiddie pr0nz or something. There is a notice at the front of the page, but’s it’s in what looks like Polish, so rest assured that no one is going to do anything about your visiting this site. By simply appending a “/b/” to the site address, you can circumvent that warning, but get ready for a headache once you do so.
  1794. One might infer that “Akceptuję regulamin” means “Accept rules” in polish.

  1797.  
  1798. Kchan
  1799. http://kchan.kordix.com/
  1800.  
  1801. This site’s interpretation of an imageboard is relatively loose, as it’s, in my opinion, more like a guestbook than anything. The posts serve better as a means to showcase the images, which are clearly in the forefront.
  1802.  
  1803. ------------------------------------------------------
  1804.  
  1805. Key
  1806. http://www.fluttering-ribbon.net/key/
  1807.  
  1808. It might not be easy to discern what this board’s about immediately with a name as ambiguous as Key, but you’ll find that this forum is devoted to the discussion of a cartoon series, Key.
  1809.

  1812. Komica
  1813. http://web.komica.org/
  1814. Chinese
  1815.  
  1816. Interestingly, there don’t seem to be many *chan boards up in mainland China. Rather, all the boards in Chinese here seem to be hosted in Hong Kong and Taiwan, which is most likely due to the fact that mainlanders are a bunch of illiterate gooks with funny accents and, as a result of the poor living and top-secret Communist, Asian mind control devices, are completely indecent.

  1820. Korean-lvl

  1828. Krautchan
  1829. https://www.krautchan.net/

  1832. The site has a sort of monopoly as one of the only German-speaking imageboards available with any traffic.

  1835.  
  1836. Krazykimchi
  1837. http://krazykimchi.com/imageboard/
  1838.  
  1839. You would expect this to be another part of the Wakachan conglomerate, but it isn’t. There is no specific discussion here, nor culture, nor air. In addition to posting as you normally would, the site allows you to paint your own images.

  1843. Kurisu
  1844. http://kurisu.ru/
  1845. Russian
  1846.  
  1847. Like Dvachso, this site records new posts on the sidebar. Beyond that, you’ll see while posting that there are some buttons that accommodate users not familiar with BBCode, a feature that I should think emulates what you might find on a typical forum.
  1848.  
  1849. ------------------------------------------------------
  1850.  
  1851. Kusaba X
  1852. http://kusabax.cultnet.net/
  1853.  
  1854. Kusaba X is an imageboard script, and this forum is used both as a support board and to showcase the script.

  1858. Lainchan
  1859. https://lainchan.org/
  1860.  
  1861. “I don’t have a boipussy. I have a large, fat dick.”
  1862.                 -kalyx, Bona Fide Stud and Owner of Lainchan, disclosed to me via IRC
  1863.  
  1864. Perhaps the most assertive variant on 4chan (and fairly considerable in terms of popularity) is Lainchan. It’s a 4chan imitation that has managed to reappropriate 4chan once again, all for what is perhaps one of the most unpleasant of all the 4chan communities. All things considered, it’s okay, but the site lacks any air that makes it considerable, which is disappointing, considering how popular it is. The disappointment is twofold when you recall the fact that it was spammed on 4chan, unfairly pulling in a fairly large userbase.
  1865. To add insult to injury, the site’s mascot is Lain, a character whose image has been excessively used on all the dozens of tribute websites out there made exclusively for that character. This is the hobby site for technically shrewd men who, like all the other embarrassing men in love with Lain, have an unfortunate surplus of skulls and resources at their disposal.
  1866.  
  1867. Though plagiarising the past big thing isn’t necessarily bad, the substance of it all is diluted so much that the site can barely uphold a semblance of itself as something other than a very near parody of the vapid culture it caters to (though that can be said for most forums). Ironically, the stuff that Lainchan does well right now is the content that deviates most from /tech/.
  1868.

  1871. Lampa Chan
  1872. http://lampach.net/
  1873. Russian
  1874.  
  1875. Their mascot is a light bulb. The site has also accrued a fairly large number of posts, which is rather impressive, considering its obscurity. There is also an online radio associated with the site.

  1879. LargeB - Posting is closed

  1882. The site archives Nulchan/0chan and cannot be posted in.

  1885.  
  1886. Life is Strange
  1887. http://lifeisstrangeboard.besaba.com/board/imageboard.php
  1888.  
  1889. This imageboard is devoted to one of those point-and-click adventure games.
  1890. Since this document is pretty much a consumer guide, I might as well say this: according to the trailer embedded on the site, you pay for the game in installments, so, while I don’t know much about video games, I wouldn’t suggest investing in this game.
  1891.

  1901.  
  1902. Lulz
  1903. https://lulz.net/
  1904.  
  1905. The site seems to be primarily a furry board, but posting is flexible.

  1908.  
  1909. Lupchan
  1910. http://lupchan.org/
  1911.  
  1912. Also described as /s4s/’s cool, older roommate. Considering every other forum, including 7chan, has a funposting board, it’s nice to actually see a site that employs those elements creatively, or, at least, is actually devoted to the cause.
  1913.  
  1914. ------------------------------------------------------
  1915.  
  1916. Livechan
  1917. https://livechan.net/
  1918.  
  1919. Interestingly, the site banner is does not emulate the standard 100 x 300 frame that is standard with imageboards; rather, the site uses an odd combination of 255 x 169, which nicely fills up the bottom-right corner of the site.
  1920.  
  1921. While the selling point is indeed that all the posting and, in the case of the drawing board, drawing is live, the site seems to utilize a different script than that of doushio.
  1922. Despite the Doushio script being more “live” than Livechan, Livechan is certainly more comparable to an IRC than Doushio. The layout is reminiscent of an IRC client that operates inside a website, like Mibbit. Posts are not seen being written in real time like Doushio, making this site no better than most imageboards running off of the tinyboard script, which updates posting automatically. If you’re into this sort of thing, then good for you, but to me, the site layout makes discussion and even posting less compelling. Despite looking like IRC, to me, the site is very unintuitive.
  1923.  
  1924. Despite all that, what the site endeavors to do is very commendable, and the site integrates its constituents together quite well.
  1925.  
  1926. ------------------------------------------------------
  1927.  
  1928. Macrochan
  1929. http://www.macrochan.us/
  1930.  
  1931. The site owner has decided to crack down on copyrighted images due to several takedown notices he’s received, which is very odd, considering that issue is very easy to circumvent by simply writing a disclaimer down at the bottom, like most popular imageboards have done.
  1932.  
  1933. ------------------------------------------------------
  1934.  
  1935. Magic
  1936. https://gensou.chakai.org/magic/
  1937.  
  1938. While this is, indeed, a subdomain of the Tea imageboard, I feel compelled to note it on its own, because it strikes a somewhat notable contrast between the two imageboards. The notable difference in this board would be that it’s considerably less unique; however, Magic matches Tea in its obscurity, and like Tea, magic has a fairly active userbase in spite of all that, but that isn’t enough to make the live posting a really considerable feature. Magic is essentially like Doushio but derived from the Tea userbase, plus a dark theme with no ability to change that.
  1939.  
  1940. And once again, I feel mildly pained for sharing this, because it feels like I’m giving you access to the sacred woods that host a bunch of fairies or nymphs (they certainly seem like the types that would love to become a nymphet), despite the fact that nothing profound is going on here, but, quite frankly, I don’t care so much that I would refrain from sharing this site. There have been plenty of new people that have visited Tea and somehow managed to shit all over themselves while making the typical denizens of the site really uncomfortable.

  1943.  
  1944. Magic Archive Voile

  1955.  
  1956. ------------------------------------------------------
  1957.  
  1958. Maloloschan
  1959.  
  1960. A humble Fillipino imageboard that seems to be really well-made, though not too exceptional. The site owner seems to have decided to list the boards at the top as what they are rather than what the directories are named. The site even has an app for Android. Very nice.
  1961.  
  1962. ------------------------------------------------------
  1963.  
  1964. Masterchan
  1965. http://masterchan.org/
  1966.  
  1967. When I initially saw the site, I mistook it for a honeypot, if that gives you any impression of what the site is like. It’s hard to tell if the content is ironic or not; I should hope it is. A few people, or perhaps just one, had the audacity to advertise this site on 4chan with stuff thrown together in MS paint in spite of the fact that the site isn’t even complete.
  1968.  
  1969. If the childish, uninspired content in the spam is what the site owner sincerely perceives to be the ideal qualities for an imageboard, then his interests and resources are largely misguided.
  1970.  
  1971. ------------------------------------------------------
  1972.  
  1973. Mechachan
  1974. http://mechachan.com/
  1975.  
  1976. If /m/ wasn’t good enough, or you just want to supplement the experience, Mechachan is your best and perhaps only option.
  1977. I have a sibling who liked Robotech. That’s as far as it goes for me in terms of my knowing about mecha. What’s even more beyond me is the animus for a passion like that, but that’s, of course, their prerogative.
  1978.  
  1979. I’d certainly never think to eroticize something like mecha, though I don’t condemn their doing that.
  1980.  
  1981. ------------------------------------------------------
  1982.  
  1983. Mufunyo
  1984. http://www.mufunyo.net/dic/
  1985.  
  1986. This imageboard is featured on Wakachan, and it’s one of those odd boards that deals with a novelty topic, in this case, the topic of dictators. So dump some photos of dictators or just discuss them here, if you’d like.
  1987.

  2001.  
  2002. If you look at the very bottom, to the right of the theme selection, there's a link to the site’s image gallery, which records all the images posted on the board. This is not to be mistaken for a catalog feature. If you click on an image in the image gallery, the image will open up in a new tab as the full image. While not exceptional, it’s a fairly thorough site.

  2005.  
  2006. nahC4
  2007. http://nahc4.com/
  2008.  
  2009. The fact that this site has supposedly been around for so long and yet remains so undeveloped is incredible. With chan4chan, at least the site looked the part in its datedness. The site owner seeks to emulate 4chan, but he is shamelessly ignorant of imageboard culture.

  2044. NewFapChan
  2045. http://www.newfapchan.org/
  2046.  
  2047. With a name like NewFapChan, it’s easy to know what you’re getting into. Perhaps the most notable board is its Hypnosis board, in which people can enjoy images and audio that eroticize hypnosis without all butthurt. Beyond that, this site is probably the most feasible competitor against Gurochan with its drawn gore board; however, the site is still rather underpopulated.
  2048.

  2082. Apparently this is supposed to be an alternative to /b/ once you get banned, but I’m pretty sure 7chan does just that but is more active than this site.

  2144. The most notable feature about the site is the fact that the board selection which is typically written at the very top-left of the page is brought down and lies in the middle of the page. The design is very cozy. The site seems to be mostly dormant, besides the occasional spam. It’s evident that there is no moderation on the site.
  2145. Damn these Russians and their jailbait.
  2146.  
  2147. The site seems to use a fork of the script used on Exachan, exaba.

  2151. Pigchan
  2152. http://pigchan.org/
  2153.  
  2154. Pigchan, owned by the former owner of Shrekchan, has one purpose: to be extremely provocative and ironic. It’s very notable in that respect, but its execution is forgettable.

  2162. This site features a new imageboard script that is currently under development. The site has an FAQ for the features of the script and everything.

  2165.  
  2166. plus4chan
  2167. http://www.plus4chan.org/
  2168.  
  2169. It’s sort of a rule of thumb that, if a site is just “chan” with a number or a slur nonsense attached to the beginning, it’s going to be a cheap knockoff. This site is no exception. Nevertheless, I should note that the site isn’t quite as cheap as most knockoffs manage to be. At least, the site doesn’t make the mistake of creating a huge excess of boards. It’s barely even notable, though.

  2188. Ponychan.ru

  2192. The Russians have a disposition towards ponies, I suspect.

  2204. http://www.pooshlmer.com/wakaba/wakaba.html
  2205.  
  2206. Also referred to as Touhou Imageboard, it’s precisely what the name entails. Of course, /jp/ actually pulls off touhou discussion much better than any devoted imageboard. And /jp/ is much more entertaining, to add to that, though neither are really that good, by popular standards, at least.

  2224. Ptchan
  2225. http://www.ptchan.net/
  2226. Portuguese
  2227.  
  2228. This site is yet another shining exemplar of how the Portuguese are one the crudest and most inelegant nations on this Earth.

  2232. Puertochan

  2247.  
  2248. Reichan
  2249. http://rei-ayanami.net/
  2250.  
  2251. Shinji Ikari of Neon Genesis Evangelion meets teenagers Rei Ayanami, an impassive, emotionless girl and Asuka Langley, who happens to have anger issues. Continuous and heated discussion ensues on 4chan. So much discussion goes on that the type of discussion eventually becomes the static, “who is best girl?” routine. As you might have realized, it’s the characters that dictate discussion on this forum. Unlike its counterparts, these guys manage to get past the whole “who is best girl” conundrum by devoting a board to each of them. Of course, the site boils down mostly to what’s mostly just image dumps and the discussion of said images.
  2252.  
  2253. ------------------------------------------------------
  2254.  
  2255. Rfch
  2256. http://rfch.rocks/
  2257. Russian
  2258.  
  2259. There is nothing special to this site other than it seems to be somewhat active. The iste has an i2p board.
  2260.  
  2261. ------------------------------------------------------
  2262.  
  2263. ROTRBC
  2264. http://boards.rotbrc.com/
  2265.  
  2266. This is one of the boards that’s in the Wakachan sidebar. As you might expect, it’s dead.
  2267.  
  2268. Notable boards:
  2269. /mugen/ - M.U.G.E.N. Imageboard
  2270.  
  2271. ------------------------------------------------------
  2272.  
  2273. Robotmetal
  2274. http://robotmetal.net/
  2275.  
  2276. Yet another Wakachan associate, this one doesn’t really offer anything new to the table.
  2277.  
  2278. ------------------------------------------------------
  2279.  
  2280. Saguaro
  2281. http://saguaroimgboard.tk/
  2282.  
  2283. The Saguaro Imageboard was made out of a fork of the Futallaby script. The board is identical in terms of aesthetics, but, of the features added, the most noticeable one is that, when you hover over an image, the image will load on the top-right side of the window automatically.
  2284.  
  2285. ------------------------------------------------------
  2286.  
  2287. Scochan
  2288. http://scochan.com/
  2289. Russian
  2290.  
  2291. Nothing special. The white looks a bit tacky, in my opinion.
  2292.  
  2293. ------------------------------------------------------
  2294.  
  2295. Shanachan
  2296. https://shanachan.org/
  2297.  
  2298. Another board that’s linked in the Wakachan sidebar. It’s notable for the fetish board, which encourages you to make a thread about whatever gets you off. You can post music files on the music board. You might notice that the name assigned to anonymous posters varies board to board, which is rather cute. In addition to that, it two novelty boards devoted entirely to circles and cityscapes, respectively.
  2299. There’s a board for the series Ah! My Goddess, if you’re interested in that. Oddly enough, though, a lot of the stuff on there is just porn. Before knowing about the series, I went on to that board and mistook Ah! My Goddess for an h game or something. I’m pretty sure it’s not, though. It probably isn’t.
  2300.  
  2301. Notable boards:
  2302. /o/ - Circles
  2303. /cs/ - Cityscapes
  2304. /amg/ - Ah! My Goddess
  2305.  
  2306. ------------------------------------------------------
  2307.  
  2308. Sibirchan
  2309. http://sibirchan.ru/
  2310. Russian
  2311.  
  2312. The site owner has made himself a sort of vat intended to contain all the Siberians. There are countless boards, but, like any forum oriented to a province or a nation, it’s probably more practical and worthwhile to utilize it as a means to discuss local events and politics.
  2313.  
  2314. ------------------------------------------------------
  2315.  
  2316. SichChan
  2317. https://sich.co.ua/
  2318. Ukrainian
  2319.  
  2320. Note that Січеш is colloquial for fag and in the phrase “Січеш, хлопче?” essential means, “are you playing with men's anuses, you faggot?”
  2321.  
  2322. At least, that’s what some guy online said. I’m not 100% clear on what he meant, but I just wrote what he wrote. I’ll let you do the interpreting.
  2323.  
  2324. Notable boards:
  2325. /int/ - International
  2326.

  2329. Site de Marde

  2332.  
  2333. A French imageboard for random discussion
  2334.  
  2335. ------------------------------------------------------
  2336.  
  2337. Snuffchan
  2338. http://snuffchan.com/chan/
  2339.  
  2340. The site owner has poor taste, to say the least. At least with Homestuck, they all have some sense of aesthetic, or at least what goes with what, but this site is a hodgepodge of images and sentiments that can only be described as unsavory.
  2341. It’s hard to tell whether this is a blog or not, as the “chan” and the blog are almost identical, just written be anonymous posters.
  2342.  
  2343. ------------------------------------------------------
  2344.  
  2345. SPchan
  2346. http://www.spchan.org/
  2347. Swedish
  2348.  
  2349. Like 4chan but in Swedish.
  2350.  
  2351. ------------------------------------------------------
  2352.  
  2353. Spicychan
  2354. http://spicychan.net/
  2355.  
  2356. I wouldn’t even mention this if it weren’t for the fact that this site reminds me of a certain board on 8chan devoted to little girls. As far as an unsightly porn board goes, it looks all right. Actually, it makes me a bit nostalgic.
  2357.  
  2358. ------------------------------------------------------
  2359.  
  2360. Stephanielove
  2361. http://stephanielove.96.lt/
  2362. Russian
  2363.  
  2364. This site is devoted to the vibrant and pink character from the children's’ television show Lazy Town. It’s very interesting how often this girl is eroticized.
  2365.  
  2366. ------------------------------------------------------
  2367.  
  2368. Sushichan
  2369. http://sushigirl.tokyo/
  2370.  
  2371. Sushichan puts up a somewhat convincing façade of what could be a professionally made site, with an interface that seems to be built off of the Vichan script.
  2372. The userbase is all right (but they’re getting worse and worse every day). They do somewhat manage to uphold the peaceful air, which the site owner tries to emulate with his “sushi bar aesthetic,” but despite that, I suspect you aren’t going to hear any discussion (such as their throwing around 7chan-tier insults) like that of Sushichan in a sushi bar, and so, in that respect, Sushichan doesn’t exactly parallel a peaceful sushi bar.
  2373. Beyond that, the site looks rather nice. There’s an emphasis on imagery, which is the site owner’s main utility in trying to evoke the sense of being in a sushi bar, and the site actually pulls that off quite well. The site owner is relatively knowledgeable about board culture, which is evidenced by the fact that he alludes to several popular imageboards in his FAQ, but the application is forgettable.
  2374.  
  2375. Don’t get me wrong, though: this site is just another shallow imitation of 4chan, but the admin, to a minor degree, is trying to deviate from its main influence, and that’s respectable enough.
  2376.  
  2377. Notable boards:
  2378. /lewd/ - incomparable diaper posting
  2379. /lounge/
  2380. /hell/ - pretty much another /z/ board but without the bells and whistles
  2381. /old/hell/ - /hell/ is definitely the same in spirit, but /old/hell/ is much more loveable and has a good deal of content, considering Sushichan’s worth (eight dollars and ninety-five cents, according to cutestat).
  2382.  
  2383. ------------------------------------------------------
  2384.  
  2385. Swfchan
  2386. http://swfchan.org/
  2387.  
  2388. Users submit original flash videos to the site. All the flashes submitted are kept and can be searched for.
  2389.  
  2390. ------------------------------------------------------
  2391.  
  2392. Swordgirls
  2393. http://swordgirls.net/bored/sg/
  2394.  
  2395. The forum to a website devoted to the video game Sword Girls. It appears to be a sort of cardgame, like Kantai Collection. The game seems to have also been translated into Corean.
  2396.  
  2397. ------------------------------------------------------
  2398.  
  2399. Syn-ch
  2400. http://syn-ch.ru/
  2401. Russian
  2402.  
  2403. The site looks nice enough, but white always makes me a tad apprehensive. You’ll notice that the board listing at the top sort of pops up, so that, among other things, make this site feel a bit more contemporary, aesthetically speaking, despite using an archaic medium such as imageboards.
  2404. A good deal of the users (or perhaps just the one active user) loves cartoon ponies, and you’ll see that content throughout all the boards.
  2405.  
  2406. As it happens, the Fukuro imageboard script developed by twiforce has been made to imitate Syn-ch’s interface, and it is accessible through this Github link:
  2407. https://github.com/twiforce/fukuro

  2411. Tahta
  2412. http://tahta.ch/
  2413. Turkic
  2414.  
  2415. October 2013AD: Some Turk finally decides to capitalize on the prospect of an imageboard, at the height of 4chan’s popularity,  just for Turks.
  2416.  
  2417. ------------------------------------------------------
  2418.  
  2419. Tasty Llamas
  2420. http://www.tastyllama.net/llama/
  2421.  
  2422. Yet another imageboard with no set topic, no culture, and no direction.
  2423.  
  2424. Smoking-hot update: to one of Tasty Llamas’ many satisfied customers who, on the thirtieth of July, decided to offer me an invitation to his fruity rump . . . dearest reader of this consumer guide; my fifty blogs, which each of my thirty-six personalities maintain; and my zine, which is released on a bi-hourly basis, if you keep rubbing your face in people’s rumps, one day, the doctors will have to plug up your own asshole! And what will you do, then, huh? Or do all the doctors fondle you with your pants around your ankles?
  2425.  
  2426. ------------------------------------------------------
  2427.  
  2428. Tea
  2429. https://chakai.org/tea/
  2430.  
  2431. The site owner typically schedules the site so that it opens up around seven in the evening, so make sure to set your clocks to that.
  2432.  
  2433. I don’t expect this guide to really be noticed, but by listing this, I suspect the site may garner more attention; I wonder, maybe, if my sharing this would be consistent with the site owner’s ethics. I understand that most imageboard users are have denounced 4chan’s leaving the “underground,” but then, perhaps that is a sign that the times have changed. Whatever. By some standards, you could call all these gimmicks pretty retarded.
  2434.  
  2435. Perhaps the most “heretical” imageboard I’ve seen so far, the site actually manages to capture the best, most considerable qualities of most imageboards, namely their transient nature and the exclusivity. You have the option to cycle between several different themes. Note that there are very few users here, but, in spite of that, there is usually at least some activity within each session. Judging from how the pages are named, it looks like the site is trying to, to some degree, emulate the air of a Japanese tea ceremony, also known as “way of the tea,” which ties in nicely with the directory /tea/way/.
  2436.  
  2437. From what I understand through watching their usage, you aren’t really supposed to make more than one thread, which is understandable, considering how small the site is. More than even most textboards, the users here are compelled to practice a certain level of etiquette, so I really have to stress that, if you want to post on here, you should lurk for at least a week or so to get a feel for the site’s “tradition.”
  2438. If you’ve ever wanted to be in a small, comfy community, the now’s your chance. I suppose, though, that if enough of you read this, the former won’t be true anymore, but as long as you align yourself with the board’s conventions, you’ll find that you’ll have a good time visiting this site.
  2439.  
  2440. This board definitely operates under conventions that a newcomer wouldn’t be knowledgeable about or heed, namely reading a thread and thinking about whether you should post or not. Tea utilizes the script that’s on Doushio, so your posts will seen written in real time. Generally, the users only seem to post once or twice a day, so keep that in mind, and think before you post.
  2441.  
  2442. Directories:
  2443. /tea/ - This is the actual forum, where you can post.
  2444. /tea/way/ - You’ll want to read this page. It gives you an impression of what the board’s about.
  2445. /roji/ - This records the planned times for when /tea/ opens up.
  2446. /toko/ - This is a clever little page that shows only the word “mu,” meaning nothingness. How very zen.
  2447.  
  2448. ------------------------------------------------------
  2449.  
  2450. Tespedia
  2451. http://tespedia.ru/board
  2452. Russian
  2453.  
  2454. A forum devoted to the Elder Scrolls series. It looks precisely like a video game forum but as utilizing the core features of an imageboard. Naturally, like what seems to be the case with most video game forums, this is an extension of a wiki.
  2455.  
  2456. ------------------------------------------------------
  2457.  
  2458. TF2chan
  2459. http://tf2chan.net/
  2460.  
  2461. There are way too many enthusiasts who like to cosplay this game. With all the cosmetics, it’s like a like an RPG but lighter. The reason the site owner was compelled to make a forum like this is probably because he’s infatuated with the RPG-cock-tease nature that essentially composes this game, and all the “nuances” of the game which the community manages to dredge up is just a device to rationalize what’s a pretty terrible addiction.
  2462. Honestly, I would suggest heroin before I would suggest video games: heroin is what consumed Lou Reed’s life, and he was pretty cool; video games are what consumed the early lives of pathetic, thirty-year-old English majors living with their parents, overshadowed by their college proffesor of an older brother.
  2463.  
  2464. ------------------------------------------------------
  2465.  
  2466. Tgchan
  2467. http://tgchan.org/kusaba/
  2468.  
  2469. It’s precisely as you would expect: a board that caters to the /tg/ crowd. It’s nothing special, but the userbase actually doesn’t seem that bad.
  2470.  
  2471. ------------------------------------------------------
  2472.  
  2473. The Sims Imageboard
  2474. http://thesimsboard.besaba.com/board/board.php
  2475.  
  2476. The site uses the same formula as the Life is Strange board. The reason for that is they are hosted on the same site, and they are most likely maintained by the same person.
  2477.  
  2478. ------------------------------------------------------
  2479.  
  2480. Threadic
  2481. http://threadic.com/
  2482. Korean
  2483.  
  2484. So as it turns out, the Coreans do, indeed, have an imageboard, and it looks very blocky, very much like the way Korean print looks, at least relative to Japanese characters.
  2485. There is some integration with social media, which is a bit saddening, but it’s kept to a minimum, and it doesn’t look like site goers utilize that feature.
  2486.  
  2487. ------------------------------------------------------
  2488.  
  2489. Tinachan
  2490. http://tinachan.org/.index
  2491.  
  2492. The site looks fine enough. As far as actual content and discussion goes, it’s typical *chan stuff but a notably low amount of traffic. There’s a textboard out there that I haven’t listed which looks a bit similar to this site, but I’ve omitted that site, as it’s more comparable to Reddit than the traditional message board.
  2493.  
  2494. ------------------------------------------------------
  2495.  
  2496. Tohnochan
  2497. http://tohno-chan.com/
  2498.  
  2499. Named after the site owner’s waifu, most of the discussion mostly goes on in the waifu board, because that’s the only topic unique to this site.
  2500. One of the biggest faults about the site is simply how many boards there are. That just spreads all the users too thin. If the site owner were to efface everything but /mai/, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.
  2501. Tohno is one of those boards that shouldn’t really be as popular as it is, but it is, and these guys are just ridiculous.
  2502.  
  2503. Notable boards:
  2504. /mai/ - waifu

  2507.  
  2508. Tonychan - Posting is closed

  2511. The site owner was nice enough to announce that the boards are closed.

  2514.  
  2515. Topchan
  2516. http://topchan.info/ib/b/index.html
  2517.  
  2518. The site is a poor pretense for the opportunity to promote your own site.
  2519.

  2521.  
  2522. Topsape
  2523. http://topsape.ru/chan/
  2524. Russian
  2525.  
  2526. I’m not sure if I’m right, but appears that the site uses its own custom script, or a fork of the Dvach script.
  2527. The site seems to be devoted to the discussion of finance.
  2528. For a country founded on the rejection of capitalism, they sure do seem to have a lot of these finance boards.
  2529.

  2567. Perhaps the one and only Greek imageboard. It somehow manages to be worse than most imageboards.

  2571. Tranchan

  2573.  
  2574. The site seems to share the same script as Textchan and Chansluts.

  2580.  
  2581. It seems like investing a site in a passing fad wasn’t the best idea. This site, interestingly, is devoted to a book. It seems odd that anyone would think that, just because they’re about trolling, that an imageboard script would be most suitable for a site with the role of promoting a book.

  2585. U18chan
  2586. https://www.u18chan.com/
  2587.  
  2588. Despite what the name says, this isn’t the typical porn board, though most of the content is of an erotic nature. This is a site for furries. The forum has a tagging system; despite that, most of the site mechanics are conventional and do not revolve around that feature.

  2592. OtakuTalk (Choice cuts) - Posting is closed
  2593. http://otakutalk.org/d/
  2594.  
  2595. There’s really not much to say about this board, but at least it’s honest. You can dump pictures here, and then you can link them offsite.
  2596.  
  2597. If you try to post on the site, you’ll find that you’ll be redirected to the main page.

  2605. https://uboachan.net/
  2606.  
  2607. Uboachan is sort of what it would look like if you took /jp/ and split it up into its own, NEET-intended boards. Well, there’s enough NEET stuff going on there for being a fakeNEET to become somewhat of an issue, as troubling as that somehow could manage to be. There are twenty-four boards, to be precise. Generally, you’ll get one to five posts a day, so this board is relatively active, but you’re probably going to only bother to check it on a bi-monthly basis. While /jp/ content isn’t always the most redeeming, they’re unorthodoxically nice, if we consider orthodoxy to be the conventions of imageboard culture, which consists of a lot of shouting and flaming.
  2608.  
  2609. It should be noted that the site uses an oddly saturated palette meant to accommodate NEETs and the sort that browse the internet in the dark.

  2616.  
  2617. Apparently the first Ukrainian imageboard. Most of the content is about as gratuitous as 4chan’s /b/
  2618. Interestingly, macro images still seem to be in-taste here. It seems like most countries outside of the West experience a sort of buffer as to what’s trendy.

  2638. Volgach
  2639. http://volgach.ru/
  2640. Russian

  2642. This site uses what appears to be a slightly modified form of the Kusaba script. The Volga Region is an area in Russia located adjacent to the Volga River. There’s not much else to say.

  2646. Wakachan
  2647. http://www.wakachan.org/
  2648.  
  2649. I’m sure it’s been said a thousand times before, but no one posts to Wakachan anymore. It's basically a dead zone that weebs like you or me stop by once and awhile during their internet wandering. It actually serves better as a time capsule than an actual, active forum in that regard. Unless you and all your /jp/sie friends are going to shitpost it back to life, though it’s probably going to remain static like this until the site owner finally closes up shop.
  2650.  
  2651. While Wakachan does, in fact, host some of its own boards, the site is also sort of a collaboration with other board owners to fit their site into Wakachan’s sidebar. You can tell that even the site owner hasn’t checked in in a while, because about a third of the sites on there are still listed despite having been taken down.
  2652.

  2659. Walpurgischan
  2660. http://walpurgischan.net/meduka/
  2661.  
  2662. There’s only one board on here, and that is Meduka Meguca, a reference to that one meme, I expect. The issue with most boards devoted to a show or a game is that, unless they’re some sort of cult classic or a sleeper hit, once the show goes past the apex of its popularity, traffic really dies down. Wakachan’s Azumanga board has managed to garner what’s a rather devoted userbase, and that’s why the board’s managed to outlive its contemporaries, but Madoka was de facto a forgettable show that was simply above par simply because the all the other shows of that season managed to be sub par. Some fans will try to aggrandize the show’s eloquence by raving about all the mundane motifs that it has. It’s all construed nonsense, though. Along with sharing media, that’s partly what the site’s discussion is composed of.

  2666. What-ch
  2667. http://what-ch.mooo.com/
  2668.  
  2669. Also stylized as /what/, it’s supposed to be The Society for the Study of Modern Otaku Culture. Well, that’s just another way of saying another /jp/ spinoff. It’s one of the more frequently mentioned forums on /jp/. I won’t deny that the theme is really nice. The posters are very playful and almost always jesting in a post-ironic sort of way.
  2670. The interface is very unabrasive, unimposing, and uncluttered making this particular site very accessible relative to other forums with the same script.
  2671.  
  2672. It’s like a better version of Ota, but, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be as active as Ota.

  2678. Russian
  2679.  
  2680. As it turns out, this site is most likely not related to xn--80a0abisu, despite the name. The reason is that would be written as something along the lines of школочан.рф, and so the odd address is not an arbitrary slur of letters.

  2688. These Russians will do anything and everything to confuse everyone, but I guess it’s just the Communist thing to do to blatantly plagiarise. The site owner didn’t even bother to remove the 4chan banner at the top of the home page. It’s tempting to wonder if this site is malicious or not and trying to deceive visitors. For the site owner’s sake, I’d like to think so, but it may just be a monumentally bad site.

  2692. Xynta
  2693. https://xynta.ch/
  2694. Russian
  2695.  
  2696. The site’s not very active, the reason probably being that you have to add the address including an actual board in order to access the forum, as the homepage does not list the boards present. In addition to that, there is a clear excess of boards. The most notable feature of this site on a superficial level is that the top and bottom bar recording the boards and the pages respectively have transparent backgrounds.
  2697.  
  2698. The /d/ boards is interesting for the fact that it is not actually a board, but if you append, say, an /a/ to that directory, you’ll find that there’s another five boards. The boards give off a /z/ or /limbo/ vibe because of the fact that they’re partly hidden, but unlike /z/ or /limbo/, these boards aren’t playful at all. In fact, it would be more fitting to call /d/ /hell/, as that matches the boards’ unpleasantness.

  2790. 2ch ★
  2791. http://2ch.net/
  2792. Japanese
  2793.  
  2794. If there is one thing to say, it’s that 2ch is a massive, hulking behemoth of boards and content. There’s no way in hell you’d ever be able to consume so much content, even if you were a native speaker. The only thing that exceeds 2ch’s vastness has to be 4chan, but only if we consider /b/ and /v/.
  2795.  
  2796. Notable boards:
  2797. /dejima/ - the only english board, probably
  2798.  
  2799. -----------------------------------------------------
  2800.  
  2801. 2ch Navigator
  2802. http://services.4-ch.net/2chportal/
  2803.  
  2804. This site is precisely that. I’m pretty sure this is an extension of channel4, but I’ll just list it as its own site. That’ll be our little secret, ya hear? So no tellin’ anyone, okay? It’s a secret!
  2805.  
  2806. ------------------------------------------------------
  2807.  
  2808. 2ch2
  2809. http://2ch2.net/
  2810. Japanese
  2811.  
  2812. It seems to be another forgettable imitation of 2ch.
  2813.  
  2814. ------------------------------------------------------
  2815.  
  2816. 2channel.ru
  2817. http://2channel.ru/
  2818. Russian
  2819.  
  2820. It’s a Russian textboard. Not much to explain here. Still and all, it’s amusing that, rather than using the traditional 2ch layout, this site utilizes theme by default. It’s characterized by its exceptionally small userbase, which consists of approximately three consistent users.
  2821.  
  2822. ------------------------------------------------------
  2823.  
  2824. 4-ch ★
  2825. http://4-ch.net/
  2826.  
  2827. 4-ch is a pretty good board that predates 4chan's textboards. It’s is a message board for discussion of a wide variety of topics and what is essentially a continuation of world2ch. It’s definitely the most relevant textboard. With a site like this in mind, it might not hurt to have a mainstream English textboard like Japan has. Perhaps a popular textboard could serve as a popular alternative to the sites demand for registration and integration with other social media and such without having a toxic relationship. If that were to happen, 4-ch is probably the most likely to go mainstream.
  2828.  
  2829. Unfortunately, the userbase is spread a little bit too thin with such a wide variety of topics, and so the only board with any consistent posters is DQN, which renders the forum is essentially defined by that board; yet, the type of posts on the other boards seem to be very serious and on-topic, not really carrying over the running jokes on DQN. In fact, I’m tempted to say that DQN is populated by the worst sorts, as they only "contribute" to one board, which is just a shame, considering the other boards do manage to get decent discussion, though very slowly.
  2830.  
  2831. DQN has its fair share of running threads, such as “[Contentless] ITT you post right now [ASAP] your current thought [Brains][Thinking][Personal],” which has reached its 17th iteration so far (note that the post limit is 999).
  2832. Internet Addicts is pretty cool if you want to talk about pedophilia, what browser you should use, and why 4-ch is dead over and over again.
  2833.  
  2834. Without an active userbase out of DQN, though, really what the site boils down to is the excess of boards. Though, those two things aside, the emergency mittens are a nice touch, if only a small novelty.
  2835.  
  2836. Notable boards:
  2837. /dqn/ - The Elitist Superstructure of DQN
  2838. /iaa/ - Internet Addicts
  2839.

  2841.  
  2842. 410chan (choice cuts)
  2843. http://410chan.org/d/
  2844.  
  2845. Finally, a textboard for the Russian community, as if they weren’t suffocating the international community enough. Actually, this board is just for reporting complaints and getting your bans appealed.
  2846.  
  2847. ------------------------------------------------------
  2848.  
  2849. Apachan (Textboard)
  2850. http://apachan.ru/
  2851. Russian
  2852.  
  2853. This site is not to be associated with the imageboard of the same name, though they’re both bad.
  2854. While the interface is a little unique, you’ll probably notice, prior to that, that you’re being shamelessly accosted by any number of advertisements, making this site extremely unfriendly. Even with adblock, the site becomes empty scarred when you efface all its sponsors.
  2855. As far as content goes, it seems to be something about working or school.
  2856.  
  2857. ------------------------------------------------------
  2858.  
  2859. AAchan
  2860. http://aachan.sageru.org/
  2861.  
  2862. AA, of course, standing in for “Ascii Art,” this site is devoted to ascii art, and there’s a board for each and everyone of the running threads you might have found on 2ch or 4-ch.

  2873.  
  2874. Copy2ch
  2875. http://copy2ch.net/
  2876.  
  2877. I guess this site wants to be the successor to 2ch. Well, it seems to ignore the fact that there are more textboards than 2ch, and there’s a fairly established tradition, but this site does well introducing a different interface to what is, at its core, a textboard.

  2883.  
  2884. If nothing more, this board could be a good resource for the Castlevania Fighting Game, or whatever the game is, especially if you can’t get enough of it, though that’s pretty unlikely.
  2885.  
  2886. Interestingly, the board uses the same theme as the Energy Breaker BBS. I guess that’s the norm for boards devoted to video games or something.
  2887.  
  2888. Here’s the actual forum:

  2897.  
  2898. “An alternative means to communicate when IRC is down or a pastebin/textdump.”
  2899. With that in mind, I guess you could say that this board is more of an anchor for the IRC, for when it goes down or something, which is a bit odd, in my mind, as it’s usually the other way around.

  2903. Department of Redundancy Department - Posting is closed
  2904. http://halcy.de/kareha/index.html
  2905. English and German
  2906.  
  2907. Note that very little of the content on the board is actually German, except the owner of the site.
  2908.  
  2909. Textboards can be very boring at times, but the DRD does a good job sprucing it up with the cute anime girl in the  bottom, right corner; nonetheless, I suspect that isn’t enough to make the site really engaging. Actually, to be honest, I’m not really too fond of looking at this website, because it’s so dull. It appears to be a modification of the Kareha textboard script.The text strays too far to the left, I think, making the content a little uninviting. No one, really, would want to stay on this board just for that, which I must admit  is a little saddening.
  2910. You’ll find at the top that this textboard doubles as a guestbook for the main site, halcy.de, so you’ll find the content is somewhat incoherent. You can discern, though, that the posters are rather satisfied, though they don’t happen to be very frequent posters. There’s no real point to the website. Its existence is totally redundant, thus the name. As far as guestbooks go, I might even go so far as to say that this page is subpar.
  2911.  
  2912. There’s a slim chance that you might stay for the website’s fairly distinct palette, as well as the rose and the anime girl on the right-hand side, but the forum is far too inactive to make the sacrifice.Perhaps to the average person, this site is pretty unaccomodating, but it seems to understand what the average textboard user is looking for, and the site does distinguish itself in accordance with that knowledge. Halcy also likes to drop words like “kopipe,” so you could assume that he’s a veteran for this sort of thing.
  2913.  
  2914. Unfortunately, it looks like posting is closed. It’s a good thing that the site didn’t have too much going for it to begin with. You can still check out Halcy’s blog; it looks like he hasn’t updated it in a few years, though.

  2919. http://archive.desuchan.net/sugg/index.html
  2920.  
  2921. It’s a support page. I may have written this before, but it seems like most imageboards like to use a textboard for their Suggestions board.
  2922. The default theme is Burrichan, the same one that OtakuTalk seems to use.

  2938.  
  2939. The board is built off of the Kareha textboard script
  2940.  
  2941. From what I understand, En Bloc is a visual novel of some sort.
  2942.  
  2943. Interestingly, the board boasts a feature in which you can add a picture, so the board is partly an imageboard. It should be noted, however, that if the board accepts HTML markup, you can always embed the images, making the function, though convenient, redundant.

  2956. Emanon Textboard ★
  2957. http://textboard.dynu.com/
  2958.  
  2959. Not really a textboard as much as it is supposed to showcase variations on the Tablecat BBS script.
  2960.  
  2961. /board/ is similar to what you see on Post Office. It’s characterised by what’s a fairly bright palette and a rather sleek, simple interface.
  2962. On /fries/, you talk about fries. I’ve never actually seen a textboard use this template; I think the software hasn’t actually been published yet, but if you see a site using this software, feel free to contact me. I don’t mind! We can talk about boys and maybe coordinate a sleepover sometime :3 we can have pillow fights and uh maybe practice kissing ha, ha I’m just joking but I mean if you want to I’m just joking ha, ha, ha...
  2963. /lounge/ is the classic message board template
  2964. /test/ is the public testing board, used for testing out your ASCII art and BBCode

  2986. EXE INTERNET MESSAGING BOARD (4FREEDOM!) - Posting is closed
  2987. http://exeishere.org/x/index.html
  2988.  
  2989. The board is built off of the Kareha textboard script.
  2990.  
  2991. It doesn’t really make much sense outside of context. I’m afraid you might not get much out of it.
  2992.  
  2993. The message board is some sort of game, I think, that went on in 2012. The posters are roleplaying. If you visit this website, here, you’ll find that ByoLogyc, this sort of Umbrella-type company which they seem to be attacking:

  2995. Here’s some videos which were evidently thrown together in iMovie:
  2996. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrI4gPQ6-qwBNtDOiJwCzcw
  2997. Apparently this is an extension of a show of some kind.
  2998.  
  2999. It seems like the posters are more focused on roleplaying, the board being more of a means for that, than any sort of board culture. For that reason, the forum doesn’t give you any intimation as to what it’s about.

  3007. http://www.explore-ideas.com/
  3008.  
  3009. Explore Ideas certainly isn’t a conventional textboard, but in spite of that, it is still text-only and anonymous. A prerequisite for posting your own question is that you have to answer a question that another poster has made.
  3010.  
  3011. Initially, you might mistake the site for maybe an online quiz or something of the sort, but I think that the site probably weighs more towards a forum than a quiz.
  3012. The page is just one big catalog, which could be an issue in the sense that the original post really dictates whether you’ll read about a topic or not.

  3016. FanBBS
  3017. http://www.fanbbs.net/
  3018.  
  3019. Despite being a variant of Kareha, it looks rather clean and uncluttered. It’s hard to understand, initially, what all these subjects are about, though. There’s a guide on the site, but it anticipates that the user knows what a BBS is and doesn’t accommodate newcomers.
  3020. Interestingly, though, it seems like some of the posters don’t really understand textboard culture that well, but that’s nothing to get into a fit over. It’s too inactive for it to really be relevant in any way.

  3036. the last post was made in 2006
  3037. http://critique.thefurryone.net/
  3038.  
  3039. Note that the site owner doesn’t want to affiliate itself with *chan culture. I wonder why.
  3040. As stated on the front page, this part of the site, the critique page, provides an opportunity to write what you would like without the parameters of an identity. In addition, like most of these sites, this site cycles through its posts, deleting those that reach a certain page threshold.
  3041. While it’s implied that the critique portion of the site is only an extension of something else, it looks like the main site has been decommissioned, and the same goes for the site owner’s blog. Nonetheless, you can still post on the textboard. Evidently, not even the owner visits that board often.
  3042. There doesn’t really seem to be any rule against posting stories that don’t pertain to furries in some way, but with a name like Furry One, you ought to know what you’re getting into.

  3088. Listening to all the two site testers on UserTesting go on about how Sushichan is an IT board, you begin to think that there has to be some textboards devoted to IT. Honestly, though, I can’t really find much. Actually, I’m pretty sure this site isn’t really for tech support, despite what the name Suggests. There’s not really anything that could give me any inkling as to what this site is about.

  3105.  
  3106. This site is very similar to Explore Ideas, but this site is definitely not as insightful as one should think. Really, it looks like the main userbase is a bunch of teenagers.
  3107. Despite what looks like a very contemporary interface, which to some, certainly myself, could induce some apprehension regarding advertising and pop ups, the site is very clean, which is quite commendable, considering how it looked prior to the update.
  3108. The posters can be pretty vulgar, but by some standards, that’s probably a plus. It distinguishes itself from a site like Yahoo Answers, though, which, in an analytical sense, is a pretty similar site.

  3123. I imagine Lilyphilia is a film of some sort, but it’s hard to sure, because Lilyphilia happens to be me popular as a username than as a film name. The real mystery, though, has to be, “What would drive some pathetic nerd to visit every textboard listed in some pastebin and write, ‘RIP another victim of underpopulation’?” Maybe he just wants to pay his respects. I highly doubt that each one of those textboards was a childhood friend with whom the fellow had some emotional attachment to, though, so why he would feel compelled to do that is really a mystery.

  3127. Kareha-PSGI Support
  3128. http://bbs.onlinebargainshrimptoyourdoor.com/
  3129.  
  3130. The site seems to use the same template as NEET TV, but in contrast to NEET TV, there is absolutely no activity on this site, and nothing that would compel a user to post there. In actuality, the forum template was intended to replicate that of NEET TV with a style sheet and configuration options that make kareha-psgi that serve to make the forum identical, as mentioned by the site owner. You can actually change the board back to the regular style by “setting the default style to “Hive” and enable using the thread backlog as your board index.”
  3131.  
  3132. You can find the main site, a blog, not an actual shrimp distributor, here:
  3133. http://onlinebargainshrimptoyourdoor.com/

  3139. Kotori Message Board (Choice cuts)
  3140. http://kotori.me/kareha/index.html
  3141.  
  3142. A textboard for random discussion. You’ll find that the palette, unlike default Kareha, is a bright, intense red on a crisp, white background. While it certainly seizes one’s attention, it is a bit trying to look at. You’ll find Kotori has some other services which might be more interesting than a dead message board. The site’s got a banner, too. In all likelihood, Kotori is probably this nerd’s waifu or tulpa or something really pathetic.
  3143.

  3145.  
  3146. Kuudere Message Board

  3149. Or, as the creator put it, a “some textboard-esque forum thing.” While it looks unique, the site owner clearly has no comprehension for basic color theory; there are different shades of colors and different colors all over the place, making the site really hideous, but hey, if you’re into that, then this site is for you.

  3157. This site is less of a textboard as it is a severely broken imageboard, but with a name as kitschy and dated as lolChan, there was no chance that this site was ever going to make, except maybe at the height of 4chan’s popularity.

  3170. Mahjong message board
  3171. http://arcturus.su/ch/mj/index.html
  3172.  
  3173. Mahjong is serious business. That’s why Osamuko and Speed made the forum. If I’m not mistaken, both of them are avid players of mahjong. So, if you’re a fan of mahjong, or maybe you just saw Sakura Trick, you might want to give this site a bit of your time. It’s a bit dead, so maybe, with the collective effort of all you mahjong fans reading this, you could breath life back into the forum. A miracle! Yay!
  3174. Make sure to not Osakamuko’s blog at the top. It was updated this year, so it’s very likely that he’s still at the mahjong game.
  3175.  
  3176. I don’t know about the two IRC channels, though. I should think that there’s probably supposed to be different stuff discussed on the two, but IRCs for most forums are usually sorely underpopulated, and to have two of them up probably spreads the users out even more; though, I guess you could monitor both channels.

  3199. Most notable, the when you visit either board, you’ll find that there’s a catalog, not a bunch of threads, meaning you’ll have to click on a thread in order to read it. While that makes the site much less cluttered, it might also be a deterrent for some people. It looks really nice though, but you can’t really make AA art with a site that uses monafont, which is half of the fun of textboards.

  3274. Post Office Letter Box
  3275. http://afternoon.dynu.com/letterbox.html
  3276.  
  3277. Perhaps one of the most popular textboards on the net, the site is full of cute, little ideas. Though they don’t often add much, it gives the site a pleasant air. In addition to the textboard, post office has an image gallery and a video sharing feature.
  3278.  
  3279. The design and layout is pretty memorable. It’s very palatable and rather simple.
  3280.  
  3281. The navigation is simple and easy to comprehend. It does a good job effacing clutter from the mix, which can be hard for textboards.
  3282.  
  3283. This is a feature inherent in every textboard, but what you experience in this site are threads which really don’t have any parameters, besides what’s described in the topic, so you’ll find that, in a thread, the main goal is to simply keep the conversation going and going. Beyond that, most of the posters seem very passionate and sincere, which is something that I should think everyone looks for in a community. The conversation just flows, and that’s just fantastic
  3284.  
  3285. When you open up a thread, you’ll notice that on the top, right-hand corner, there’s some information about the thread winsomely dressed up in such a way that it emulates a letter you might find in the snail mail. The website procures images from the photo gallery and incorporates that into a stamp, all of which is pretty sweet and lovely.
  3286. It’s not immediately gratifying, though, so expect to spend a little time perusing the catalog of threads.
  3287.  
  3288. While fairly intuitive, the home page could be a bit overwhelming for newcomers.
  3289. Despite that, it’s very easy and inviting to make a new thread.

  3321. http://s15.zetaboards.com/Sheeber_Heaven/index/
  3322.  
  3323. Before Sheeber, there was Bungleboard, but I’m not going to take the initiative to include that site. Relative to API, this site is neither friendly nor intuitive. I suspect, a few years from now, we will reject the way we act like retards ironically the same way that people chose to merge themselves with the “Anonymous” herd. Though, you’d have to be any idiot to take any of that seriously, regardless of whether it’s in-taste or not.
  3324. This site openly caters to the “ironic” crowd that includes Ota-ch and GNFOS, but they forget that all but the lowest of the already low userbase has too much pride in themselves to make an account on a forum. With that in mind, Sheeber does even worse than API, as it is necessary to make a profile in order to see anything in the site.

  3336. Secret Area of VIP Quality (SAoVQ) ★
  3337. http://www.secretareaofvipquality.net/
  3338.  
  3339. The site has a few interesting banners that cycle at the top. The links to the imageboard end the oekaki board don’t work. The link sharing page is a great idea, but it’s rendered superfluous by the many threads sharing “Links of VIP Quality.” The same goes for the AA board, as you can just share ASCII art on the main board.
  3340.  
  3341. If you’re going to post here, it’s because you just want to joke around with your fellow VIPPERS, and you can’t speak Japanese. There’s not really any competition for the sort of stuff that goes on in this site, considering how stagnant and dated the culture is. The site’s popularity relative to the other textboards with similar content is enough to make it worth acknowledging.
  3342. An added thought: perhaps these guys are just a bunch of tryhards with no genuine authenticity or sincerity to their posts, and with that, there might be day when textboard culture will penetrate the mainstream, and your average twelve-year-old will run around laughing about how Daddy Cool will let VIPPERS into his secret area of VIP QUALITY iF YOu paY hIm eNOugh ;)

SAoVQ kind of builds off of what’s already there as far as textboard culture goes, so to someone who might not be familiar with anonymous textboards, the site could seem a bit absurd and disconnected. There’s a learning curve, and for that reason, the site is a bit frustrating, but there’s a small, little link at the bottom that accommodates newcomers. Even so, in all likelihood, no newcomer is going to think to click on that link, though, which makes the whole guide pointless.

  3356. http://www.shachuhaku.com/bbs/index.html
  3357.  
  3358. With a name like Shachuhaku, you know it’s something good. Well, in this case, the board appears to be a support site for what looks like Craigslist’s Japanese equivalent. If you click the link at the top, you’ll find the main site:

  3363. Shitstream
  3364. http://shitstream.ru/
  3365. Russian
  3366.  
  3367. The most notable thing about this board at first glance is its interface, which seeks to efface all the superlatives that the typical message boards feature, it seems. Unfortunately, that only manages to make the site look very cumbersome.
  3368. Without even reading any of the posts, it’s easy to reach the conclusion that the site is rather vulgar, as far as textboards go.

  3372. The Society for the Study of Modern Imageboard Culture - Posting is closed
  3373. http://wakaba.c3.cx/soc/index.html
  3374.  
  3375. Though The Society for the Study of Modern Imageboard Culture happens to sound like a very interesting topic, I won’t deny the fact that it doesn’t seem to be moderated all that well, considering some Indonesian fellow continues to spam a poker blog, followed by a multitude of other really unrelated sites on there, and the posts are neither deleted nor cycled out by other threads. It’s saddening, really, because this looks like a promising board, though it’s been vandalized like this for so long. In addition to that, other users simply seem to abuse the board for advertising their own shitty imageboards.
  3376. Ironically, this board is only linked on the site through the site’s anti-spam page.

  3380. Tablecat’s Lounge
  3381. http://tablecat.ipyo.heliohost.org/
  3382.  
  3383. I guess he also hosts the Hotglue Guild’s BBS…? Pretty much everyone not using a variant of Kareha is using Tablecat’s message board script, making this guy (I’m assuming) a huge figure in Western textboards.

  3392. Textchan
  3393. http://www.textchan.com/
  3394.  
  3395. A member of what seems to be the camwhores/gays/traps confederacy, along with intern3ts and male general, this is a textboard that seems to be more oriented towards the imageboard crowd. In addition to the ASCII board and tech board, we have a copy pasta board (abbreviated as “cp”) and a crossdressing board.

  3398.  
  3399. The anonym0us message board
  3400. http://www.anonym0.us/index.html
  3401.  
  3402. There’s really not enough content to ascertain the purpose of this forum. In all likelihood, however, the site is devoted to random discussion.

  3405.  
  3406. Tokiko's BBS
  3407. http://4x13.net/bbs/index.html
  3408.  
  3409. It’s one of those BBSs hosted on a blog, just like DRD and Furry One Critique. It’s a pretty standard boards, but for what it lacks in superlatives it boasts in activity. While not radically active, I think you’ll manage to get a few replies to your threads, if you want that.

  3413. Tough Life

  3416. While tragically underpopulated, the forum looks rather nice for a textboard. It’s like you’re in space or something, which is radical.

  3419.  
  3420. Treeboard ★
  3421. https://board.treech.at/
  3422.  
  3423. I’d like to note that Hamstakilla could easily be compared to Hamstakilla as a sumptuous, less-workable permutation of Treeboard. What Treeboard brings to the table is for the most part its approach to conversation, which operates in a way comparable to that of a flowchart, rather than the typical threading that imageboards demonstrate. Treeboard, however, is clearly more partial to an imageboard system than the typical commenting system on, say, Youtube, which hardly fosters discussion. It integrates the features shared by both sources in order to put emphasis on the the relationship between comments, like a flowchart. While analytically more intuitive, the site, in general, has much more that it needs to achieve in order to be a viable alternative to the current message board model.

  3427. Tripchan

  3431. This is perhaps the first and only foreign site that utilizes the Doushio script. The site has actually managed to accrue a good number of posts.

  3434.  
  3435. Tuzach

  3441.  
  3442. UK Life in the Woods
  3443. http://uklifeinthewoods.co.uk/index.html
  3444.  
  3445. The first thing you might notice is the banner, which shows you the address to the main page, which I’m assuming this forum is an extension of, but I can’t really make heads or tails of what the files on there are about. In addition to that, this forum uses the Blue Moon theme that 6ch uses.
  3446.  
  3447. From what I can discern, this forum is for a server of some kind, probably intended for a game of some sort. They never bring up what game, though.
  3448.

  3450.  
  3451. Tohnochan (choice cuts)
  3452. http://tohno-chan.com/txt/
  3453.  
  3454. Not much to say. At the very least, the site’s having little to no traffic is excusable on a textboard.
  3455.  
  3456. ------------------------------------------------------
  3457.  
  3458. Unholy Citadel of 6ch ★
  3459. http://sageru.org/
  3460.  
  3461. Very recently, it seems to have gone down. I’ll leave it up here in the case that it gets resurrected. In the meantime, you can visit this site, with which the owner seems to be testing out some new features:
  3462. http://textboard.dynu.com/
  3463.  
  3464. It’s back up. As usual, Sageru has the best rules of any message board. The site is like DQN concentrate, so if you’re into that, you might get a kick out of this site. Otherwise, it might be dull to you.

  3474.  
  3475. WWEsucks
  3476. http://www.wwesucks.com/
  3477.  
  3478. The first thing you’ll notice is that the site makes use of a distinctly hideous font. The site seems to be about wrestling, and all the posters seem to actually be serious . . . or not; it’s hard to tell.
  3479.  
  3480. If you like wrestling but hate WWE, and you enjoy the font Opendyslexic, then this site is for you, I guess. It’s a, uh, really bold font, I must say. The font really captures the high-energy, action-heavy content of wrestling. I mean, it really screams, “wrestling.”
  3481. If you really, really love it, you can find it here:

  3486. WakaChan (Choice cuts)

  3488.  
  3489. A majority of the boards are image-oriented, but there are four textboards.
  3490.  
  3491. Not much to be said here. They’re all built off of the Kareha textboard script.

  3501. World2ch Hideout
  3502. http://world2ch.org/board/index.html
  3503.  
  3504. moot advertised his site on a few of places, namely Something Awful and world2ch. 4chan used to be filled with tripcodes, a complete 180 from what it is now, but the users from world2ch seem to have pushed towards discussion more in favor of anonymity. Beyond that, what makes this site special has to be RedCream’s posts, which compose a fourth of the board. I can only hope to aspire to become half as creamy as RedCream . . . my hero.

  3512. World4ct (Choice cuts)
  3513. https://www.4ct.org/
  3514.  
  3515. You’ll find that a few derogates get thrown around, perhaps by the one person, on /lounge/, which is certainly not cool with Christ. The posters here are a all a bit bitter.
  3516. News for VIP is very interesting for the sole fact that it encapsulates the repetition and shitposting SAoVQ without any sincerity or ingenuity.

  3549. DevBBS

  3555.  
  3556. Minichan
  3557. http://minichan.org/
  3558.  
  3559. This site doesn’t seem to really have any set discussion, which appears to be a theme among most talkboards. On the plus side, it’s forgettable sites like this that accentuate the boards with any sort of direction.
  3560.  
  3561. ------------------------------------------------------
  3562.  
  3563. OtakuTalk
  3564. http://otakutalk.org/
  3565.  
  3566. The board is essentially /a/ but with a different interface. It should be noted that the site is considerable less active than a site like Tinychan, but OtakuTalk makes up for it by have a relatively set scope of discussion.
  3567.

  3570. Scatchan
  3571. http://www.scatchan.net/

  3576.  
  3577. Tinychan
  3578. https://www.tinychan.org/

  3593.  
  3594. Adorabooru
  3595. http://adorabooru.com/
  3596.  
  3597. This gallery collects images that could be deemed both cure and worksafe. At the moment, the site seems to be suffering a few hiccups. I am unsure as to whether this will ever be resolved or not, but the latter is very likely what is the truth of the matter.
  3598.  
  3599. ------------------------------------------------------
  3600.  
  3601. Angel HQ
  3602. http://angelhq.net/
  3603.  
  3604. The site seems to have been meant to catalog images of things that could be thought of as moé, but I could be wrong.
  3605.  
  3606. ------------------------------------------------------
  3607.  
  3608. Baron’s Bloody Gallery

  3614.  
  3615. Bishbooru
  3616. http://www.bishibooru.com/post/list
  3617.  
  3618. The site appears to be partly broken. If you’re visiting this site, and you can manage to see the images, then you would find that it’s mainly dedicated to the video game Mass Effect.
  3619.  
  3620. ------------------------------------------------------
  3621.  
  3622. Booru Project
  3623. http://booru.org/
  3624.  
  3625. The site seems to be sort of like the site imageboardforfree before it was deleted. For obvious reasons, I won’t take the initiative to list all of the boorus that have been made with this site. If you want, you can check it out for yourself.
  3626.  
  3627. ------------------------------------------------------
  3628.  
  3629. Burrowowl
  3630. http://gallery.burrowowl.net/
  3631.  
  3632. The content seems to mostly consist of comics, macro images, and other things in that vein. Suffice to say, it isn’t really worth checking out.
  3633.

  3635.

  3642.  
  3643. Dasaku
  3644. http://img.dasaku.net/post/
  3645.  
  3646. I’m unsure whether this image gallery really has any specific topic, but one can easily discern that the site owner loves cartoon transgenders and hermaphrodites.
  3647.  
  3648. ------------------------------------------------------
  3649.  
  3650. Dollbooru
  3651. http://dollbooru.org/
  3652.  
  3653. By dolls, the site owner means the kind of dolls manufactured in Japan which you might see come up every once and a while on /jp/.

  3663.  
  3664. Gal
  3665. http://4x13.net/gal/
  3666.  
  3667. The gallery is more of 4x13’s blog than anything, as most of the submissions seem to have been done by him, and it certainly reflects his own interests more than anything else.
  3668.  
  3669. ------------------------------------------------------
  3670.  
  3671. Gelbooru
  3672. http://gelbooru.com/
  3673.  
  3674. Gelbooru, interestingly, the site script was created entirely from scratch. At the moment, the site software has not been released. The site mostly focuses on images that feature anime or hentai.
  3675.  
  3676. ------------------------------------------------------
  3677.  
  3678. Gununubooru
  3679. http://gununu.nipah.co.uk/post/list
  3680.  
  3681. The site is devoted exclusively to recolors of an image of Ana from Strawberry Marshmallow.
  3682.  
  3683. ------------------------------------------------------
  3684.  
  3685. Imageboard Search
  3686. https://ibsear.ch/
  3687. https://ibsearch.xxx/
  3688.  
  3689. Note that the two different addresses direct you to two particular categories of the site: the “.ch” address is the typical booru; whereas, the “.xxx” address, as the domain might suggest, directs you to the NSFW category, though it seems like the images on the latter part of the site are not exclusively pornographic or even something that one might find titillating.
  3690.  
  3691. This is a what appears to be a particularly useful booru that indexes images from other boorus. As it doesn’t rely on user submissions, the site isn’t entirely like conventional boorus.
  3692. According to the site owner, this site is a successor to the old IbSearch which had plateaued at roughly five million images due to the demand for resources. At the moment, the site owner maintains several servers and several bots that collect images from the other boorus.
  3693.

  3695.  
  3696. Karabako
  3697. http://www.karabako.net/
  3698. Thai/Laos

  3700. For the record, Thailand is one of the richer countries in that peninsula.
  3701.  
  3702. ------------------------------------------------------
  3703.  
  3704. Katawa Shoujo
  3705. http://shimmie.katawa-shoujo.com/post/
  3706.  
  3707. The site is devoted to images relating to the visual novel Katawa Shoujo.
  3708. As a very personal opinion, I’d like to point out the fact that most of these images range from tolerable to rather good in terms of quality, which is always nice to see, but I’m not exactly a shrewd doodler or anything of the sort, so I wouldn’t say that my opinion is worth much.
  3709.  
  3710. ------------------------------------------------------
  3711.  
  3712. Koebooru
  3713. http://koe.booru.org/
  3714.  
  3715. The site primarily stores images of a Japanese voice actress named Ai Kayano.
  3716.  
  3717. ------------------------------------------------------
  3718.  
  3719. Konachan
  3720.  
  3721. This site isn’t exclusively devoted to the character Kona, though, whoever that might be. In fact, this booru is supposed to host high-resolution pictures. At the top of every image, you can see the resolution.
  3722.  
  3723. ------------------------------------------------------
  3724.  
  3725. Kusobooru
  3726. http://www.kusubooru.com/
  3727.  
  3728. This site is devoted to images that depict tickling.
  3729.

  3731.  
  3732. Mechabooru
  3733. http://ryusei.booru.org/i
  3734.  
  3735. This gallery collects mecha images and things affiliated with mecha.
  3736.  
  3737. ------------------------------------------------------
  3738.  
  3739. MSPAbooru
  3740. http://mspabooru.com/
  3741.  
  3742. MSPA stands for MS Paint Adventures, which is the name of the site which hosts the webcomic Homestuck. I’m not going to bother to look at this image gallery. If you like this stuff, then you know what this is about.
  3743.  
  3744. ------------------------------------------------------
  3745.  
  3746. Nihonmaru
  3747. http://www.nihonomaru.net/chan/
  3748.  
  3749. The site collects pornagraphic images. The only prerequisite for the user submissions, it appears, has to be that the images are in the style of alternative Eastern art; ergo, you should submit anime, and you should expect anime when searching this site.
  3750.  
  3751. ------------------------------------------------------
  3752.  
  3753. One Yukkuri Place
  3754. http://yukkuri.shii.org/

  3756. Yukkuri are the disembodied heads that originated on Futaba and say, “Take it easy.”
  3757.

  3759.  
  3760. Paheal
  3761. http://rule34.paheal.net/
  3762.  
  3763. Paheal most certainly shares Rule34’s endeavor in the sort of content it collects, but in addition to having a considerably larger amount of content, it also has a part of the site devoted to cosplay and gender swapping. There is a considerable larger amount of content here than on Rule34.
  3764. Note the announcement at the top that declares that the site is cracking down on pornography depicting minors, even if the images are simulated.
  3765.  
  3766. ------------------------------------------------------
  3767.  
  3768. Ponibooru
  3769. http://pbooru.com/
  3770.  
  3771. An image gallery devoted to ponies.

  3773. ------------------------------------------------------
  3774.  
  3775. Rate Me
  3776. http://rate.nyo.me/
  3777.  
  3778. The site boasts a concept that, while most certainly not foreign, is somewhat unique for a booru: women appear to take photographs of themselves, and users rate the women on a ten-heart system. Naturally, all the ratings are consistently very positive and inflated, but, it would be hard to say what style of rating wouldn’t be over-aggrandized when dealing with a subject as subjective as a woman’s attractiveness.

  3785. As the address suggests, this is a gallery that collects porn. It has a rather considerable amount of content.

  3788.  
  3789. Safebooru
  3790. http://safebooru.org/
  3791.  
  3792. As the name suggests, this image gallery is exclusively worksafe content.

  3795.  
  3796. Safeponi
  3797. http://safeponi.com/
  3798.  
  3799. The site is like Safebooru but with ponies.

  3802.  
  3803. Sagubooru
  3804. http://svarteper.com/sagu.html
  3805.  
  3806. In actuality, this is only a shell of the former Sagubooru and has no practical application.
  3807.  
  3808. ------------------------------------------------------
  3809.  
  3810. Sankaku Complex
  3811. https://chan.sankakucomplex.com/
  3812.  
  3813. What distinguishes this site, in spite of its being relatively dormant and lacking content, is its ranking system, which categorizes the most popular images from a period of time, the image’s author, its size, and its quality.
  3814.  
  3815. ------------------------------------------------------
  3816.  
  3817. Sexybooru
  3818. http://sexybooru.com/post/list
  3819.  
  3820. The site is pretty much 3Dbooru but with a dark and edgy interface.
  3821.  
  3822. ------------------------------------------------------
  3823.  
  3824. Shimmie Testbed
  3825. http://shimmie.shishnet.org/v1/
  3826. http://shimmie.shishnet.org/v2/
  3827.  
  3828. One can only imagine that the first is an archive, and the second is the active booru. I’m not sure what the point of this site is.

  3838.  
  3839. TGbooru
  3840. http://grognard.booru.org/
  3841.  
  3842. /tg/ is the 4chan board for Tabletop Games.
  3843.  
  3844. ------------------------------------------------------
  3845.  
  3846. The Big Imageboard
  3847. http://tbib.org/
  3848.  
  3849. The site runs on the Gelbooru script.
  3850. The site seems to procure images from other sites and put them on this site, similar imageboard search. Though, I suppose, calling what’s essentially an image gallery an imageboard is technically correct, the site owner, I feel, is a bit mistaken in calling this site The Big Imageboard.
  3851.  
  3852. ------------------------------------------------------
  3853.  
  3854. The Doujin
  3855. http://thedoujin.com/index.php/categories/index
  3856.  
  3857. The website is built off of the Gelbooru script, but the site collects albums of images the same way that e-hentai/exhentai does. The content is similar to those two sites, too.
  3858.  
  3859. ------------------------------------------------------
  3860.  
  3861. Touhouradiobooru
  3862. http://booru.touhouradio.com/
  3863.  
  3864. This site has quite the name, I must say. It looks like the images are supposed to be associated with various IRC channels, but I don’t really know. Apparently, all the cool /jp/goers have moved on and started using IRC. I suppose that’s a better way to get a quick response to your questions, but the compromise is that you receive less thorough answers.
  3865.

  3868. Tout Visuel
  3869. http://www.toutvisuel.com/index.php?page=post&s=list
  3870. French

  3872. The site hosts mainly pony-related images, but there are some random, unrelated things in here, too.
  3873.  
  3874. ------------------------------------------------------
  3875.  
  3876. Vectorbooru
  3877. http://ichijou.org/
  3878.  
  3879. The site is supposed to host vectors, and, as useful as that would be, I can’t help but notice the fact that most of these images are .png files. I may be mistaken, but I’m pretty sure that defeats the purpose of a vector.
  3880.

  3893. I find it hard to be sure, but this is most likely a furry image gallery.

  3896.  
  3897. Xbooru

  3904. Yandere

  3920. 4-ch Archive
  3921. http://archives.4-ch.net/side
  3922.  
  3923. It’s very easy to overlook what’s a remarkably obscure link right in the middle of the sidebar. As the name entails, this is an archive for the channel4 textboard.

  3927. 4ch
  3928. http://4ch.mooo.com/
  3929. Japanese and English
  3930.  
  3931. I guess what it’s trying to do is emulate 2ch and most other web 1.0 sites. Well, I won’t deny the fact that it’s fucking ugly. It doesn’t help that most of it is in Japanese.
  3932.  
  3933. Among the textboards, there’s also directories for some other stuff:
  3934. 2ch icons - Icons for 2ch memes
  3935. cowsay cows - .cow files, I guess. I didn’t know such a thing exists.
  3936. W Windowing System - Looks like some software or games
  3937. FreeDOS - I’m not really sure

  3996. This archive is mostly significant because of the fact that it archives the musc board. It has become sort of like a catalog for direct download links.

  4007. Warosu
  4008. https://warosu.org/
  4009.  
  4010. An archiver for 4chan
  4011.  
  4012. I spent a considerable amount of time pondering as to whether I’d categorize Warosu as an imageboard or a textboard. In the end, as you can probably see, I decided to put it under the “other” category, the reason being that, if I were to establish my criteria in such a way that I would allow Warosu to be a textboard or an imageboard, I would have to include other archives for the simple fact that they also include ghost posting. Really, ghost posting is the animus for my giving Warosu this honorable mention. Ghost mode is utilized more on Warosu’s /jp/ board than on any other part of the archive, or any other archive for that matter. To add to that, Warosu’s really the only place where anyone has actually thought to ghost post intentionally, knowing that they cannot actually interact with the thread as they post. On the other archives, if you toggle ghost posting, you’ll find that it consists of idiots who forget they’re in the archive or simply cannot put two and two together to realize that their posts aren’t going to effect a dead, two-year-old thread.
  4013. Naturally, there is no moderation. Of course, you don’t really need to moderate what’s simply text. The whole point of Warosu is that there’s absolutely no quality control. This is the /jp/ community’s equivalent to /z/ or limbo, as banned posters have a tendency to post here.
  4014. The archive, naturally, doubles as a 4chan archive, so you can find a few interesting resources there, if you have the time, patience, and perseverance.
  4015.  
  4016. Update: due to funding issues, it appears as though internal posting has been suspended. Image archival has also seems to have been nixed.
  4017.

  4019.  
  4020. 4chan Search Engine
  4021. http://4chansearch.net/
  4022.  
  4023. This website is really only a worthwhile alternative to the archives if you plan to search /b/. Otherwise, you can just use the archive.
  4024.  
  4025. ------------------------------------------------------
  4026.  
  4027. 4x13’s Website
  4028. http://4x13.net/
  4029.  
  4030. 4x13’s website. What’s his actual name? I’m not sure.
  4031.  
  4032. Directories:
  4033. /buddhism/ - If you’ve ever thought about converting to Buddhism
  4034. /bbs/ - The BBS
  4035. /links/ - Most notably, it links you to LainChan, Tohno-Chan, 6ch, and world2ch. Unfortunately the little link in the corner that reads “xxx” doesn’t direct you to some SHAB action but rather a site made by some autismo in love with Lain all presented in a way that would probably make for a good SCP article. The site is pretty well-made, I must admit.
  4036. Among those, there’s some nice blogs, resources, and some fantastic websites boasting some rather clever ideas. The site owner also likes JerkCity, so, if it weren’t already clear, it’s blatantly obvious that he’s a huge nerd.
  4037. /gal/ - A booru/image gallery of some sort. A disappointing lack of porn :/
  4038. /game/ - Don’t let the name trick you: this “game” tricks you into donating to the site! What cunning deception!
  4039. /linux/
  4040. /flow/ - An actual game
  4041. /blog/
  4042. /me/ - Some personal links

  4045.  
  4046. 9ch (Choice cuts) ★
  4047. http://9ch.ru/scripts/
  4048.  
  4049. This seems to be a collection of what appears to be textboard scripts. Its a rather large one, at that.
  4050.  
  4051. ------------------------------------------------------
  4052.  
  4053. All Chans
  4054. English
  4055. http://allchan.org/
  4056.  
  4057. It really isn’t a forum as much as it is a collection of forums. On top of that, it is a clone of Overchan, the reason being that Overchan has been deemed dead for future updates. If I’m not mistaken, it relies on submissions from the site’s users. What All Chans endeavors to do is to continue where Overchan left off, naturally. It seems to be updated fairly frequently, though its scope isn’t quite that large.
  4058. The website features tags and the option to share posts on other social media websites, which is a bit trying, though you shouldn’t see that once you utilize the sidebar to access other sites.
  4059.  
  4060. I never understood the whole OverChan thing, though. Sidebars in themselves feel a bit cumbersome, in my mind, and I feel like putting all the boards in one place limits you to a superficial experience of the site.
  4061.  
  4062. ------------------------------------------------------
  4063.  
  4064. Anime Princess Island
  4065. http://animeprincessisland.moe/
  4066.  
  4067. At some point, API and API’s most notable and only offshoot, Chuu (chuu.pw), had been spammed on 4chan’s /a/ and /jp/ by the one and only terme, Chuu’s site owner, as well as some other friends. Don’t worry about Chuu, though: the forum was taken down less than a few months in, and if you try to access the site, you will be redirected to Gaia Online, which is virtually identical to API in most respects. Chuu lives on as an IRC channel.
  4068. It’s easy to discern how much of the forum’s air is pulled from the community on /a/. With that in mind, what you’re seeing is a community that, in a prolonged paroxysm of unfulfilled yellow fever, decided that they would group together and talk about how they just want to be pretty girls and be held tight by a strong, reliable man and simply indulge in that until their weird craving solidifies and becomes a hopeless obsession. The only discernable female posters, assuming they aren’t joke personas made by some of the users, are, ironically, more toxic and aggressive than the male posters.
  4069. Amusingly, the users seem to have manifested a new gender out of their own dysphoria, keeping one foot in their masculinity and the other in whatever is going on in there. In that way, this site represents the visible consequences of the information age as they ground their identity, it seems, more in a profile than their own bodies, which can be regarded as extraneous.
  4070. The users are predictably cynical about the quality of their own posts, and yet they continue to revel in their kusoposting. The forum is primarily a chatroom, and it boasts the vapid, forgettable (and moderately disturbing) culture that they cling onto in vain for some reason.
  4071.  
  4072. ------------------------------------------------------
  4073.  
  4074. Anon Sleep Over
  4075. http://www.anonsleepover.org/
  4076.  
  4077. They used to have an imageboard, but that was scrapped after someone started spamming the board. At this moment, you can visit the site just to watch them stream movies, some of which aren’t bad.
  4078.  
  4079. ------------------------------------------------------
  4080.  
  4081. Aoi-chan
  4082. http://hii.aoi-chan.com/
  4083.  
  4084. It appears to be a tracker that catalogs anime. While the interface is very dull, it probably gets the job done, but at the moment, there isn’t that much content. Certainly, this site isn’t a viable alternative to something like BakaBT or Nyaa.
  4085.  
  4086. ------------------------------------------------------
  4087.  
  4088. Chanstat
  4089. https://chanstat.ru/
  4090. Russian
  4091.  
  4092. This site appears to record the traffic and revenue of what I’m guessing are the eight most relevant imageboards in Russia, the most notable of these eight being Krautchan and 4chan, both of which are the two only boards whose main language isn’t Russian.
  4093.  
  4094. ------------------------------------------------------
  4095.  
  4096. Arhivach
  4097. http://arhivach.org/
  4098. Russian
  4099.  
  4100. It seems to be an archive of a few Russian imageboards, namely 2ch.hk.
  4101.  
  4102. ------------------------------------------------------
  4103.  
  4104. Chaos Ball
  4105. http://drawball.com/
  4106.  
  4107. This is exactly like World of Text but with images instead of text. In many ways, such as the button that avoids your cursor, with which you can toggle the site’s music, the site is very playful and endearing.
  4108.

  4117.  
  4118. Cyber Guerrilla
  4119. https://cyberguerrilla.info/
  4120.  
  4121. The site may have had a forum in the past, but it’s no more. Nothing of value was lost, though, I assure you.
  4122.  
  4123. ------------------------------------------------------
  4124.  
  4125. Dollship (Choice cuts)
  4126. http://dollship.ru/vault/
  4127.  
  4128. It’s the same as 9ch’s directory that collects the scripts of several imageboards, but the imageboards that both of these sites procure its data from differ.
  4129.  
  4130. ------------------------------------------------------
  4131.  
  4132. Fool Frame
  4133. http://boards.wohlfe.net/
  4134.  
  4135. While this site shares the same script as many of the 4chan archives, it does not seem to be archiving 4chan boards. In spite of that, I have deemed that the board, after a great deal of head scratching and investigation, archives no other site than itself, and it functions as a n independent forum. The air is very similar to that of Ota or What, but this site is remarkably more obscure.
  4136.  
  4137. ------------------------------------------------------
  4138.  
  4139. Gallo
  4140. http://gallo.host56.com/
  4141.  
  4142. This is more of the testing site for apathetic, the owner of DameIB. I nearly mistook DameTube for the same sort of feature that the Post Office has with its television, but, in actuality, Dame only embedded one of his personal playlists. The playlist is primarily anime soundtracks.
  4143. His main page links to a few textboards and imageboards, but if you’ve read this thread, none of those sites should be anything new.
  4144.  
  4145. He also seems to have archived 7chan’s flash board.
  4146.  
  4147. ------------------------------------------------------
  4148.  
  4149. Haruhichan (Tracker)
  4150.  
  4151. Haruhichan looks like a very professional, dependable site; it’s convincing enough to where you might just forget the fact that you’re still pirating. The places where it falls short includes the fact that the site doesn’t have an about page, which makes creating this description a tiny bi harder.
  4152.  
  4153. ------------------------------------------------------
  4154.  
  4155. ILoveYamada
  4156. http://iloveyamada.org/
  4157.  
  4158. This is the site to an obscure Imageboard script.

  4161.  
  4162. Japanese IMG/TXT Board Navigator v.1 ★
  4163. http://misc.dameib.net/boards/
  4164.  
  4165. It’s kind of like OverChan’s Japanese counterpart. If you’re curious about japanese textboards/imageboards, you’re going to want to check this out, because I’m probably not going to get to that for a while.
  4166.  
  4167. Apathetic probably put a lot of work in that site, so be sure to check out his site, DameIB.
  4168.  
  4169. ------------------------------------------------------
  4170.  
  4171. Kotori’s Site
  4172. http://kotori.me/
  4173.  
  4174. Kotori has a number of services that sound actually a little useful. Among the message board, there’s hosted a URL shortener, a text editor, and a spreadsheet maker, the latter two happen to sort of operate like Google Drive. With that in mind, though, I guess there’s no point to it, Google Drive being a free service. Beyond that, though, the site is beyond useless. About half of the pages just seems to be blogging or pointless information about Linux and Computers that everyone knows about.
  4175.  
  4176. Directories:
  4177. /kareha/ - message board

  4194. Neritic Archive
  4195. http://archive.neritic.net/viewer/#/
  4196.  
  4197. “Neritic is a giant, [nerdy] sausage fest, and there are no females. There are just [loser] males claiming to be females.”
  4198.                 -lemmy, 2011
  4199.  
  4200. Neritic, from what I understand, was a deviation of a larger forum, the name of which I can’t recall nor really care for. Like Fighting Amphibians, the people on Neritic like to discuss games. The quality of the forum is definitely questionable, but we’ll cut them some slack, considering the content is pretty old.
  4201. You’ll find that now, as the forum is closed, Neritic only exists as an IRC channel, a fate that many forums (such as Chuu) have met in the end.

  4216. Perhaps the site had some forum at some point, but at this moment, the only forums you’ll be seeing through this site are that which redirect you to other addresses.
  4217. One could imagine that this site is used to promote what is the Mexican equivalent to Avatar. Why anyone would want to emulate that show is beyond me.

  4221. Peinto
  4222. https://www.peinto.org/
  4223.  
  4224. Basically the same feature that you may have seen on 4chan’s draw board but devoted entirely to showcasing your doodles rather than discussion. The interface is oriented towards that, but, unlike what you may have expected, beyond the user-generated content, there is no components that tie in with social media or interoperability or even quite that much of a community. You can create an account, but that’s entirely optional, as you can post anonymously.
  4225.  
  4226. ------------------------------------------------------
  4227.  
  4228. Pinochan
  4229. http://pinochan.net/news.php
  4230.  
  4231. The site is most well known (if you consider a few people linking the site to its being popular) for its “overbooru” which had collected Danbooru clones, but that seems to have been nixed, which is a tragedy. Beyond that, the site owner has compiled a rather large number of flash animations.

  4235. Post Office
  4236. http://afternoon.dynu.com/
  4237.  
  4238. In addition to the textboard, there’s a video board, an image gallery, and a sort of message-in-a-bottle-type thing. My online bestie, Alyssa, rebuked the site, calling it, “all gimmicks,” which I guess is partly truthful.
  4239.  
  4240. Directories:
  4241. /video/
  4242. /photo/
  4243. I can’t remember the directory for the last board, unfortunately :/
  4244.  
  4245. ------------------------------------------------------
  4246.  
  4247. Russian Overchan
  4248. http://img-board.com/
  4249. Russian
  4250.  
  4251. This site is exactly what the name entails. However, know that I’ve taken the initiative to write down all the Russian boards I know on this guide.
  4252.  
  4253. ------------------------------------------------------
  4254.  
  4255. Shotachan
  4256. https://shotachan.net/
  4257.  
  4258. It’s a fantastic, well-made site, yes, but, this isn’t an imageboard.
  4259.  
  4260. ------------------------------------------------------
  4261.  
  4262. Stanley’s Site
  4263. http://img.stanleylieber.com/
  4264.  
  4265. Unlike what All Chans would like me to believe, this isn’t a site, but rather, this is a sort of image gallery or a blog that operates under a tagging system. That isn’t to say that his site isn’t interesting, but it isn’t an imageboard.
  4266.

  4269. Tablecat’s Cool Free Emporium Warehouse! ★
  4270. http://tablecat.ipyo.heliohost.org/
  4271.  
  4272. The name wouldn’t really be fitting if it was just a textboard.
  4273.  
  4274. Under Perl Scripts:
  4275. /bbs/ - A textboard software similar to that of world4ch (RIP ;_;) and 2ch
  4276. /gallery/ - An image gallery, like that of Afternoon
  4277. /tinywiki/ - A wiki script
  4278. /htpasswd/ - Something related to passwords
  4279.  
  4280. Under Other:
  4281. /Guestbook/
  4282. A Directory of Bulletin Boards
  4283. SJIS art preview
  4284. Contact Form
  4285. A Cool Free Song (Table Cat - Table Cat)
  4286.

  4288.  
  4289. Tanasinn
  4290. http://tanasinn.info/wiki/Main_Page
  4291.  
  4292. This is essentially the textboard equivalent to Encyclopedia Dramatica. Note the fact that the entries aren’t vulgar, sarcastic, or angry.
  4293.  
  4294. ------------------------------------------------------
  4295.  
  4296. Vectorfag
  4297. http://vectorfag.lostsig.com/
  4298.  
  4299. It’s the personal site of some nerd who likes to make vectors and clip art.
  4300.  
  4301. Who doesn’t need vectors of all these classic memes?
  4302.  
  4303. ------------------------------------------------------
  4304.  
  4305. Vichan
  4306. http://vichan.net/
  4307.  
  4308. This site isn’t as much of a site as it is a sort of confederacy of loosely associated sites that share the Vichan script.
  4309.  
  4310. ------------------------------------------------------
  4311.  
  4312. Wakaba and Kareha
  4313. http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/web/wakaba_kareha
  4314.  
  4315. Wakaba and Kareha are two scripts used to make an imageboard and a textboard, respectively.
  4316.  
  4317. ------------------------------------------------------
  4318.  
  4319. World2ch Historical Society
  4320. http://world2ch.org/
  4321.  
  4322. A record of some of the history of world2ch and 4chan as told by 0037.
  4323.  
  4324. http://world2ch.org/wiki/doku.php - A sort of wiki with random facts
  4325. http://world2ch.org/faq.html - A kind of FAQ
  4326.  
  4327. ------------------------------------------------------
  4328.  
  4329. World of Text
  4330. http://www.yourworldoftext.com/
  4331.  
  4332. There’s no denying, despite what’s most certainly a very clever and fresh idea, that World of Text’s paradigm is one that is rooted in the concept of message board culture, mainly using text and exclusively text as a means to convey ideas. Partly, this is a sort of sentimental archaism; ASCII art, naturally, is prevalent. The elementary fact that the meaning of an idea is distorted by the medium itself should be understood.
