"lowkey interested in how people perceive me and would love questions asking me why i am the way i am" oh
Wow, that's not a question at all. :V
what do you think about the points made in this article? https://archive.is/iTEMP
What am I? A college professor?
I will say that it sounds optimistic in a weird way, but there are definitely better ways to say "despite information being in the palm of our hands, there persists a rising interest in spirituality and whimsy as the facade of techno-optimism withers and we lose a sense of self" in less than 21 paragraphs.
I haven't really been online-online in a while, but I thought of you when I saw that the Lions won their division. Please savor this.
2023 NFC North Division Champions, baybee!
Yeah, I really hope the Lions can make a run and win playoff games. I'm fairly confident that this team can, but it'd be so lame if they just laid an egg or we have another reason to be the aggrieved.
Really appreciate the wiki, just wanted to say thanks. Also, assuming from the hamsic on the wiki the "ML" in your twitter bio means marxist-leninist?
Sure, why not.
At what age/year did you start browsing imageboards? I'm asking this because I'm blown away by how much you know about so many imageboards that and niche internet phenomena that I never even heard of, you must've been an even worse imageboard addict than myself...
I first heard about 4chan through an old internet forum in the late 2000s where it was vaguely described as this "bad" place, despite several users hinting that they actually went there and even tried to hotlink the images which obviously didn't work. However, I really didn't care since I was young and more focused on dumb shit like counting to 10,000 or pirating media that interested me.
After I turned 13 in 2010, I decided to become a wayward lurker that observed internet communities like 4chan and DeviantArt from afar, then I began that throwaway identity that eventually became this identity and the rest is history. I wouldn't really call myself an "imageboard addict" since I still feel like I've mostly grown out of them since 2015. Anybody could've done what I've done.
Stumbled upon your wiki while searching for information on 1ch.tv. Love the wiki, its so detailed! Awesome work :)
Oh man, that article's kinda old. Thank you for the kind words.
Hello. I am new here. Am I going to regret stumbling upon this wretched place?
Fuck if I know.
Do you like vtubers? Why or why not?
I have no strong opinions about them. I get why people use them and I'll tune in to some obscure ones by chance, sure, but it's ultimately just a gimmick.
Besides, I already get enough second-hand information about VTubers from my friends.
You said in previous answers that you mostly spend your time on invite-only servers and niche websites but you didn't want to talk about them. If you don't want to name those places can you at least tell us some good ways to find niche websites and what platforms the servers are on? Are they discord servers, forums, or something else?
I can't really give any pointers since, like, some of the things that I've been through are rather personal, individual experiences, and the internet has changed so much that following my footsteps would probably lead you somewhere completely different.
As I said before, I mostly just hang around with a close-knit friend group on Discord.
How old are you?
I wouldn't know, how did you get here?
I was browsing your Wiki as a result of feeling nostalgic for the old textboard era and ended up clicking your Twitter. It says it's your birthday, so happy birthday!
Settle down, Beavis
I ain't that old.
How many languages can you speak/read?
By myself, I only know English. I have picked up some Japanese and Laotian, but I don't consider myself proficient at either, and I haven't practiced Spanish or German in years.
With a computer, I go all out with dictionaries and sentence parser tools, though the caveat is that I can only work with transcripts or writing. I do use machine translation tools, but I'm somewhat strict about the meaning being conveyed properly, thus prefer to verify the meanings with said dictionary tools before my brain comes up with a mostly literal translation that makes sense.
I do apologize if I misled anyone into believing that I'm some sort of polyglot. I'm just really good with a computer and have a handful of international friends that put up with me.
what do you usually spend money on?
Studies show that when people voice an opinion, it reinforces their belief in it. By simply saying something you become more convinced of it. Do you think some of the "idiosyncrasies" of online discourse can be explained by this phenomena?
The phenomena is more of a byproduct or result, no? There is a bit of unusual theatrics that emerge in digital discourse that aim to capture or exploit the audience, unlike real-world discourse.
