Is 8ch the future? (20)

Seems like the reddit of boards, is 8ch the anonymous future?

We are now up to 26ch. The future of 8ch has long since be passed.

Are you saying size DOES matter?! >>2

Is it size that matters? Or the assigned value of individual and combined numerical digits?

I think it's girth, actually.

8ch had so much promise but the goblin/dud hotwheels ruined it by pushing away everyone useful and then evil mason jim stole it and turned it into a shill/datamining operation.

Is it datamine-y?

I haven't heard anything about that myself. Any sources? Interesting topic.

8ch tries so hard to be not4chan yet the people there basically take everything from 4chan such as the Anonymous mascot. They simply took him and recolored it to red with a white suit instead of green with a black suit. Wow, huge difference, you're totally original and not4chan!

4chan did the same when it branched out of SA, but 8ch has really failed in that it doesn't have as much to offer over 4chan. Maybe the board creation does give them a leg up in some cases, but not enough for most people to stay there.

They're using Google botnet APIs iirc. They're also using Cloudflare captchas on Tor users.

8ch is a neat concept but it suffers, as >>8 says, from being a "Fuck 4chan" chan and having a culture built entirely around being super edgy and blaming everything on external forces. I guess that's what you get for populating your site with expatriate /v/irgins and /pol/acks. I also think that 8ch has shown that the end result of user created and moderated boards isn't all that different from the cabal of mods and jannies on 4chan.
And as it stands, there really is very little you can do to make meaningful or longlasting changes to anonymous BBS culture as long as 4chan still exists. Once it goes though, there'll be a diaspora the likes of which have never been seen on the internet.

With all of the popularity of 4chan, news stories, screencaps ect. I doubt the domain name will ever go offline. It might be bought out by domain squatters if the site does end up dying though.

8ch.org redirected me to a Facebook login screen. When I visited the URL again it redirected me to one of those "Congratulations! You have been randomly selected to take part in this survey" ads.

This leads me to believe that Facebook is paying for domain redirection ads like a common spamming Indian trying to get you take a "risk free trial". Why would they do that?

Amazing, technologies that are prone to abuse also have hurdles to control the flow of abuse. Who would have thought of such a thing?

This is why I appreciate the lack of moderation on 26ch. No moderation and nothing that needs moderating as there are no images.

I was looking through that pastebin list of chans and textboards. That was true for at least some of them. The other half of the dead boards were "this domain for sale!" things.

Well that's worrisome..

90% of 8chan users just use the same 5-10 main boards and all of the other boards are dead.

Also their userbase is the height of autism

Most of the boards that have the same name as 4chan ones are the same subject.
