Fully agreed

what do you mean by textboards?
bbs? irc channels?

Anonymous 171485

stuff like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Textboard , but i'm fine with people extending the conversation to other text based boards

Anonymous 171740

mh, haven't used textboards, then
only ever various bbs-derived sites and imageboards, of course.
what would the advantage be over imageboards then? I think posting images is quite nice

What are some comfy text boards to try out?

Anonymous 171749

if you are lazy, you don't have to hunt an image to make a new thread. and maybe less chance of being grossed out because some blockhead is posting really bad images. and i guess more text-based discussion, (people are less inclined to just post a reaction image and leave, or just post a rage-bait image and leave). if people are talking about something like video-games, someone can't just post pictures of a woman-character with inflated boobs and ass and flood the thread with that.

not that imageboards are bad or people don't say stupid shit on textboards, but without images, it's slightly easier to browse and stay sane

there's not many out of this person's list that survive ( http://grey.sdf-eu.org/papers/chan.html ). I guess the comfiest one right now is the one in the list called the Post Office. it's not that active though.

Anonymous 172042

actually a decent amount of those are still running, I'd say. much better than some other lists where less than 10% survive
how did you even find this, though?

Anonymous 172234

just by google search. i forgot the google search term for it though, but i was searching for textboards on google because of the bad images that sometimes pop up on CC

Anonymous 172645

that's true, especially if that's what the entire thread is

I prefer comfy altboards like sushichan but the problem is 99% of them die out eventually due to shitty 4chan raids or just plain inactivity.

Anonymous 173295

immediately saw cp upon visiting sushichan, just a warning to others who were curious about the site. doesn't seem like a common theme on the board but damn i wish i didnt see that, need eyebleach nao

Do you ever get the feeling that textboards are subject to slightly less insanity?

Anonymous 185472

Imageboards. Images can help you get your point across, and can make other anons laugh

Anonymous 188113

I like reddit because it allows for categorisations. I know it sort of killed forums but I wasn’t really around during that era nor did I use forums that much. I do wish that reddit was a lot less uh reddit

Anonymous 208562

wow the concept of anonymous text boards has existed for centuries!


Anonymous 217556

Why would I ever want to post on a text board? Image boards just give you the option, and make the discussion more vibrant and colorful. Text boards are obsolete. May as well use reddit
