"Moot" Working On Reboot of 4chan Platform

timothy posted more than 4 years ago | from the weird-and-wacky-world dept.

Graphics 205

Hugh Pickens writes "Nick Bilton has an interesting interview with Christopher Poole, known online as 'Moot,' founder 4chan, a jumble of content, hosting anything from pictures of cute kittens to wildly disturbing images and language. Poole, now 22, started 4chan when he was 15 after he discovered a Japanese image-board Web forum called 2chan dedicated to anime. 'The code for 2chan was publicly available and I took it and translated it from Japanese to English using tools online and I threw it up on the Web and sent it out to 20 people,' says Poole. 'I wanted to keep with the 2chan naming and the URL for 3chan was taken at the time so I just jumped to the next number.' Although 4chan gets 8.2 million unique visitors every month, 600 million page loads per month, and 800,000 new posts a day, Poole is working on a new project to reimagine what an image board should be today using the current technologies available."

Could that article possibly be any more lame??? So...Moot ponders some nebulous concepts about 4Chan: The Next Generation for about five seconds. Some other dude then bloats it into a puff piece in hopes of warping reality by placing the concepts of "New York Times" and "hip blogger" in the same sentence, with his own name on top. Riiiight. Journalism, we hardly knew ye.

The sad truth about 4chan (-1, Redundant)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31547566)

Channers, or "chantards" as I refer to them, are a personal army of virgins, suffering from mild to severe Asburger's Syndrome, who engage in pedophilia at various levels and ultimately will be fresh meat for horny inmates after the lack of understanding of online law about what they post.

It will be only a matter of time before the site folds, the chantards turn on moot after he puts his foot down so he can make a regular paycheck and/or it gets pulled from their hosting providers.

I will give them some credit, a chantard during the Hal Turner drama managed to cause a 600mb/s+ DDoS attack that knocked out a core NAC router that was hosting Turner, causing NAC to yank him.

That site is kind of like living with strange and often helpful people who leave you cryptic notes on your fridge, with pictures of your mom from some party you swear you don't remember being at. And yet all that is somehow comforting. A sort of magic 8 ball that both answers and re-enforces some of the lunacy and hivemindedness I remember from lambda moo.

Every single one of you have gone into chatroulette to flash your dick, and engaged in a flame war with the retards that post on youtube, or spent hours looking at gross things at rotten.

This are the dark corners of the web. We all go there. Not all of us admit it.

All of this sites exist for a simple reason: Because they can. It's part of what we all are, and we have to eventually vent and let the daemons run loose.

So, don't be so critic of 4chan and accept it for what it is: A crappy board filled with self-righteous, ignorant, malicious and violent hypocrites. A quick hack that excretes nonstandard html code where lots of cruel and selfish uncaring monsters vent their frustration and anger. And we are those monsters.

I was expecting something along the lines of "what Rotten? Gee, there's a billion worse sites out there".

True. And, just as you point out, Rotten is to shock sites what Playboy (or was it Penthouse? Sorry, too young here myself) is for ... inspiration material. When you compare it to the stuff you can get today, it's not even tame. Hell, I can see more tits in afternoon talkshows. But back when it was created, it sure was about the only halfway easily accessible ... inspiration material you could get your sticky fingers on.

I'm pretty sure we'll soon get to see pages where you can watch high-res vivisection of living people (well, living at the beginning of the movie...). And no, I do explicitely NOT want to know whether such a site already exists. And even less whether Rule34 applies!

/. and /b/ share a common history. /. is sort of a grandparent for /b/. And, read how I say /b/ and not 4chan. /b/ and the rest of 4chan are completely different places, with wholly different people.

There used to be a /prog/ board in one of the chans (strangely, fchan.us.) Then 2 years ago, it was pulled without an explanation. It was still filled with immature teens who were taking intro C++ courses and asking for homework help, but 70% of the threads were memes about "EXPERT PROGRAMMER" and python's sucking due to "the forced indentation of code."

And then, a couple times a week, a golden nugget would come out in the form of some interesting programming problem to be looked at, and giving or getting help on some legit non-compiling code, or a particular book to read. I miss that. Anyone care to inform where the board went, or whether there are similar boards? It was the closest that you could get to a /. system, with the benefit of flat threads, lack of censhorship (negative moderation will kill initiative, and I don't mid sifting through crap if the total threads are expunged slowly and aren't more than 30 or so.) There were no "news for nerds," but that meant everything was code-related, and complete noobs were somehow filtered out.

Thanks.

"I mean, how many of us can honestly say that at one time or another he hasn't felt sexually attracted to mice. I know I have. I mean, most normal adolescents go through a stage of squeaking two or three times a day. Some youngsters on the other hand, are attracted to it by its very illegality. It's like murder - make a thing illegal and it acquires a mystique. Look at arson - I mean, how many of us can honestly say that at one time or another he hasn't set fire to some great public building. I know I have. The only way to bring the crime figures down is to reduce the number of offenses - get it out in the open - I know I have."

The /b/-tard is but one aspect of us. Most of us are caring, empathetic, logical, intelligent and/or educated, and function in real-life. Embracing, expressing, and living in harmony with one's dark side is a sign of balance and health. Having masturbated in private to depections of questionable situations or posting insanely clever racist jokes based on reality are not abnormal.

Problems arise when the dark side is swept under the rug instead of acknowledged and understood. The repression and cognitive dissonance has a way of catastrophically exploding in peoples' faces -- just ask Larry Craig, Mick Foley, or the Catholic priests. The assholes who dedicate their lives to fighting and speaking out against what they fear most about themselves.

Every single one of you have gone into chatroulette to flash your dick, and engaged in a flame war with the retards that post on youtube, or spent hours looking at gross things at rotten.

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong... wrong wrong. Leaning on the fact that I've only done one of those(youtube flame war), I think its rather silly to assume that everyone has performed at least one of your regular activities. This needs to be modded down.

No I don't. Though I can see how you'd want to believe it.
Meanwhile, sweetheart, I'm a furry and you just made me feel a much better person than you. :D

I'm not into the CP, the racism or the occasional photos of death and dismemberment... everything else there is generally hilarious. But no, I have not flashed my dick on Chatroulette or vandalized Wikipedia. (Though I have played all kinds of silly characters on Omegle.) What I'm saying is, we all have our different moral/personal boundaries and like you said in between the lines, we don't all have one unifying interest in /b/.

(FTS)> Although 4chan gets 8.2 million unique visitors every month, 600 million page loads per month, and 800,000 new posts a day

I was curious how this compares to /. Not sure where to find such numbers, but Alexa says 4chan is ranked 714th, and /. is ranked 1,263rd (three month averages).

At least on /. the comments are insightful, informative, and funny, although sometimes the stories are... .

Moot's paradigm shift in imageboards is actually just the promotion of the recently assimilated TinyChan, now on tiny.4chan.org. The purpose? To troll Kimmo Alm even harder.

Hah! I've long suspected that 4chan was the result of someone throwing up on the web.

Unnecessary. (1)

I already builded teh next-generation 4chan, but it sucked almost as bad as the current one, so I eated it. Now go to YouTube and watch a video you hate.
