Tripfags are the least of our problems, how often do you even see them in /jp/? /pol/ shit is a far bigger menace, look what happened to /v/. The biggest issue is just the rate at which 4chan grew, all the new people came in and thought the jokes of the previous users were serious, then those new people became the majority and the jokes really did become serious. Then this just repeated over and over and things became worse and worse. If 4chan gets old and irrelevant enough maybe it can actually recover to some extent but it'll probably just become Stormfront: Anonymous Edition.

>> No.16951051 [DELETED] 

/pol/ itself is still like old /b/ somehow. I don't understand where all the faggot /pol/tards on other boards come from. It's like they just dip into /pol/ to get misinfographics and other dubious "information" and then fly off to other boards to spread their idiocy.

The only real problems 4chan faces are the eternal threat of all boards tending towards being flooded with porn or as close to porn as they can get away with, and the somewhat newer threat of neo/r9k/ and their women-obsessed, frog posting scum. /vg/ was a mistake that spawned as much cancerous attitudes as /v/ and /b/, but they don't really spread those habits to many other boards.

I kind of disagree with the assertion that /jp/ has been completely assimilated into what passes for a pan-board "culture" nowadays.

People seem to forget that one of the core traits that defined early 4chan was its utter hostility towards any kind of outside intrusion or co-opting of its collective intellectual properties by outsiders. /jp/ maintained that active hostility towards normalfags long after the board was infected with the chanology brainworm that made it socially acceptable to evangelize, to actively take the internal board culture and spread it as far and wide as possible in pursuit of some dumb political goal. Subsequent campaigns, particularly GG and the 2016 election, and the rise of mobile users (who I think account for half of all traffic on 4chan and most of the increase in use since 2014) has further destroyed the old taboos of spreading 4chan shit outside of 4chan.

I don't think it'll last for too long, but as of 2017 /jp/ is one of the few boards that maintains this garrison mentality and tendency towards introspective dialogue. (Outside of the generals anyway, which might as well just be /a/ and /v/ colonies). We probably have enough time left for TH16, which depending on how much excitement it generates among old fans might extend the life of the board community by another year or so.

Once conversations on /jp/ start routinely devolving into combative political autism and pearl-clutching over SJWs (or the alt-right, for that matter) along with posturing over sluts and traditional western values you can then safely write off 4chan as thoroughly dead, cleansed of all original content and transformed into a barren wasteland of normalfaggotry.

I understand where you're coming from, but in the end /jp/ is just a vessel, a medium for seeking out ersatz community.
Yes, life is starting to throw more bullets at you and the bosses aren't even giving you the option of timing them out anymore.
Just always remember that rather than quitting, it's better to find a better vessel.
Adapt to the bullet hell that is modern life by finding every opportunity to graze.

Generals are the infected appendix that incubate /pol/faggotry, which then leaks out and infects the rest of the board.

>/jp/ maintained that active hostility

I browse /jp/ way less these days than I used to and that's one of the most notable things that I think is gone.

/jp/ feels like it was tamed too much by the mods at some point, I wish my grasp of time was up to pinpointing when but I've been a fucking truNEET for close to a decade now, but I was really bummed out when /jp/ felt like it was flooded by shitposting to the point of unusability, but what came after the flood feels arguably worse.

Not sure if it's just over-moderating that killed it, but it feels like the home-grown hostility to people who are blatant crossboarders are haven't lurked enough is gone, or at least very different to what it was.
Surprised to see people arguing that the hostility remains, if it does, it's a shadow of what it was.

>> No.16963402 [DELETED] 

You're absolutely right, our attitude towards outsiders is not nearly as virulent as it once was. I tried to work in a metaphor saying that /jp/ is still tending to the glowing embers of its old board culture, but it ran on too long and I cut it to keep everything in the one post. I think a combination of moderation and a general distaste towards how our insularity and hostility was expressed (remember the days when people would spend hours spamming pictures to force a thread into autosage? I sure as hell do) is what led us to this situation.

A lot of the more egregious spammers, for all the shit they put the board through from '11-'13, did act as crude enforcers and propagators of the old board culture (which, if you're super old and have literally lived most of your life online, was itself a partial transplant of Something Awful's FYAD/LF boards circa '04-'09). "Take It Easy" used to be a virtual commandment here and the best way to construct an environment where you could only take it easy was to: a) make it difficult to have constant, rolling conversations in the sense that you see them in both generals and (to a lesser extent) in /a/-style template threads, and b) to ridicule anyone taking things too seriously with funposting. A lot of them fled /jp/ for /ota/ or /gnfos/ after moderation was stepped up which cleared the way for normals to move in and steer conversations in the direction of the pan-board /v/-/pol/ culture.

But like I said, the embers of the old 4chan are still here in /jp/: we were the board that voted to have our new banner tell outsiders not to come here. And you only really see a lot of greentexting/spoiler misusage in the generals.

With all that being said, I think the few of us who are still sticking around due to nostalgia or brain problems is to finally get off of our lazy asses and learn japanese. I really see no other option for /jp/sies at this point, other than to make the final exodus to japanese twitter or pixiv.

I'd say that opening the portal is always an option, but if we've come so far from the salad days of '08 then why quit now when we can still keep the minority spirit going?

As a relatively new member of /jp/, with me only being since 2014, I'm not too sure on that statement. I have no idea why I first came to 4chan, other than luring on /v/ for years before coming here, but I never felt ostracized here.

Maybe I'm just used to the attitude, or didn't act like a total faggot but /jp/ is something that just comfy. I can never leave this god forsaken site, but if I'm force to stay here, I rather enjoy cancer that I find enjoyable.

2010+ /jp/ was never anything but what /r9k/ has become. I wish you all would stop reminiscing about it. It was shit through and through. The problem nowadays is mods allowing /a/ and /v/ to seep in, but the solution is not to spam dumb shit all day every day nor this /sp/ style lol janny hotpockets shit either. Nor is "wayq" and the like, which itself was formed of /a/ and /v/ trying to get cred on /jp/.

Nothing is stopping anyone from making new quality threads either.

It's great if you can get enjoyment out of /jp/, most of what I've said should be qualified as someone who's been on 4chan for a decade and on /jp/ since shortly after the split. I admit some of my attitude might just be burnout, but I'm confident in saying that /jp/ is nowhere close to the culture that originally attracted me to it. With a lot of topics being hived off into godawful generals as well, my idea was to learn japanese and just go straight to the source.

Maybe I'm misguided and desperate! Either way, something something, dreamlike days etc.

When I had left /jp/ and 4chan in general at the end of 2011 and came months later, I found that /jp/ had really changed a lot. There was some kind of new wave of shitposters and instead of telling them to get the fuck out of /jp/, it seemed like everyone was just ironically shitposting as some new defense mechanism. .

Since then, I only dropped by very rarely. Even now, I only have two threads open and it's only because they're both talking about the old days. My desire for Touhou, which was my main reason for being here, had pretty much dried up. Stopped keeping up with the games, the official stuff, the music albums, the doujins, new pictures.

Maybe /jp/ was always changing and I never noticed when I was always here.

On a related note, last year I had to fly halfway across the country for christmas reasons. Since I couldn't access the internet all I had was my mind and some pen and paper.

After about twenty minutes of not knowing what the hell to do with myself, something inside me just let go, like a valve unplugging itself and flowing again. I was so productive with that pen and paper it almost felt like I was high on something.

Of course, as soon as I got to the airport I went back on my old bullshit.

It was a fad, really. I don't remember it being anything more than just "another way to enjoy touhou" in a similar sense to operator Reisen's appeal. Both subcommunities didn't have enough people required for the continuous production or sharing of new content needed to maintain interest (in my opinion).
>Viper the rapper thing that I still don't know if it was some real thing or some 4chan spawned shitposting thing.
99% sure Viper was a forced /mu/ meme picked up by shitposters during the 2011-2013 /jp/ anarchy.

>That nana plushie getting stolen broke him.
You sure? I really can only see a gradual decline as he realized that no one (other than corporate behemoths) wanted to read his grimdark super-serious comics and that the only way he could stay relevant to his fans was through complete and utter moe shit.
