Newbie here Anonymous 35888

I just found this img board but it looks pretty much dead to me, especially /media/, and it's kinda sad because it looks comfy enough.

I tried to power through 4chan because reddit is becoming too much like other social media sites but I prefer staying anonymous and having to wipe my account every week is exhausting. Also now people can follow users there and I don't like dealing with this.
I mainly enjoy talking about video games but… /v/ has to be the worst place I've been in. There's no actual real content there anymore and the mods archive anything that actually promotes discussion. I don't care much that they're very anti-female there, but overall that place is just terrible, low-tier bait shit-hole.
I'm hoping crystal.cafe, /b/ and /media/ are nice alternatives.

Anyways… Hello, /b/. I hope you have a nice Saturday.

Welcome, anon! I think you’ve found a place you’ll really enjoy. Remember that 4chan isn’t the only imageboard out there- there are pretty good boards targeted around specific hobbies elsewhere on the internet.

Don’t be afraid to start a thread if you feel like things are slow!

Anonymous 35892


Yeah, I just found out about that. I'm very new to this and I'm amazed I haven't found imageboards sooner, despite surfing the webs for 2 decades.

Anonymous 35893

Hello anon, welcome. I found c.c a few months ago and stayed for the /comfy/ness.

4chan is full of crazies/incels/cancer but I really the imageboard format and being anonymous.

It is pretty quiet here but so I check once every few days. I kind of like that it is slow though. Some imageboards are just so chaotic.

Hello Anon! I feel the same way about 4chan and Reddit. I've really only had negative experiences from those sites personally. Sometimes I browse /ck. While I like keeping anonymity on image boards, I wouldn't mind either way honestly. It's pretty slow here and while I don't mind I also have been pushing myself to respond and post more here to help make it more active instead of just reading what others are saying.

Anonymous 35900

Welcome! I really like this place too and am glad I found it. Sure, it's not as active as other imageboards, but I really like how discussions here are unfiltered/uncensored, but also civil. Anonymity is very important too. Sometimes in non-anonymous boards, I feel like I have to maintain this persona. On the other hand, there's more room for honest self-expression when posting anonymously.

Anonymous 35903

You wont find much video game discussion here either.
Just a bunch of whining about relationships and lack of them.

Anonymous 35931

Fucking LOL @ 4channers coming out of their tiny little cesspit hive world thinking anything that doesn't get 150,000 posts a day is "dead".

Anonymous 36009

To be fair, there's a lot of slow boards like this one on 4chan, I think people are just used to today's internet in general to be a very fast moving place. I love /trv/ on 4chan and I visit it as much as this place tbh.

>There's no actual real content there anymore and the mods archive anything that actually promotes discussion.
Here's some lessons in 4chan 101

Archiving happens automatically. If a thread goes to archive that means it was not bumped enough and fell off the board, or it reached its bump limit and therefore could not be bumped anymore, falling off the board. Mods don't archive threads, they can move threads though. This almost never happens because 4chan only has a few mods (compared to hundreds of jannies) and all mods serve all boards.

Jannies are board specific and can delete threads, but not archive or move them. If a thread is deleted, it was probably jannied (but it could also be deleted by OP). Mods only very rarely get involved directly since that's what the army of jannies is for.

Try /vg/ maybe.

I am done with 4chan. I am trying to refrain from shitposting and lurk while I am here, but the itch is strong. Where do people go here to post at least semi-funny things? Surely it's not just /lolcow/?

Anonymous 37421

Visit /vg/ if you see any game you play, and ofc don't say you're a female. Small communities but not even close to dead (depending on game), really comfy.
Been there for around 5 years and don't regret it (much)

Anonymous 37422

Radical idea: More posting over here. Let's just make c.c what we want it to be.

Anonymous 37441

Welcome! :) I'm pretty new here as well (half a year) and lurk a lot but i really love how comfy and pleasant it is.
Honestly 4chan scares me a lot, I only lurk there once or twice every month or so/check archives of games I like. I'm too scared to talk there lol

Anonymous 37448

Do you perchance play Monster Hunter?

Anonymous 37450

Except I'm sure there's probably less then 50 regular users on this site.
I bet a unique id tracker on threads would be an eye opener…

Anonymous 37463


What games do you, and everyone in this thread play? Maybe we should all play a game of Town of Salem? I play smite a lot.

Anonymous 37465


I think that would be interesting!
My interests fluctuate a lot, but right now I play a lot of MH;W. On PS4 though. My PC kinda sucks. Large variety otherwise, there aren't many games I don't enjoy (mobas are harder to get in to though)

I love Zelda Games. My favorite is Majora´s mask. I lean a lot towards atmospheric, kinda spooky and/or depressing games. I loved Silent Hill 2 and Shadow of the Colossus. I also loved the first Dark Souls even though it took me forever to beat and i don´t care much for hard games like that.

I was also way into Final Fantasy games from 7 to X. I played XV but outside of every character being goals af the game wasn´t that great as the classic ones.

There´s a really cute+creepy game called Yomawari Night alone, totally recommend it. Its a fun little game full of yokai lore , if you have similar tastes as me you´ll apreciate it. From the recent ones i´ve played Hellblade Senua was really cool and also the RE2 remake was amazing.

Anonymous 37526

That's a cute drawing <3 :3
I'll check that game out for sure. Can I recommend some stuff? LISA, Nier: Automata, even Psychonauts, Spec Ops: The Line too maybe
I'm playing Majora's Mask right now actually, it's amazing

Anonymous 37534


I tried to get into Nier, the intro seemed promising, i imagined the whole game was going to be action driven and changing between playstyles like that but then it was kinda a generic open world with crafting and fetch quests so i kinda left it at that.

Whats beyond that? what am i missing? i am curious because a lot of people seem to love it.

Anonymous 37535


i shitpost on a local venezuelan board, not much outside of that. I don´t go into lolcow anymore but i check out kiwi every so often. I used to go into x/ on 4chan a lot when it was mostly spoopy stuff but now is just a pol/ clone, like most of the boards.

Anonymous 47750

why though?
The great thing about imageboards is that they're anonymous.
If you messed up in a thread you can just start over in another without anyone knowing about the connection.

Anonymous 47784

Anyone from any other board could have told you that /v/ is a shithole. It's the breeding ground of consumerists and retards who back the giant corporation of the month as if they were a football team.
You go to a board whose topic primarily appeals to children and you were expecting adults?
Come on now.

Anonymous 47807

/v/ is trash. Sadly, /vg/ cannot hold an arena FPS general, so I'm kinda alone. I'm hyped for Diabotical coming to closed beta next weekend. Would want to discuss it with people but it's all
>epic game store
>dead genre
and so on…

I haven't played anything Quake-like in a long time but I guess I might try it out if my 8 year old laptop can still handle it

Anonymous 48355

Anonymous 48366
