Can't say I'd miss the place, personally, except maybe the odd time I go there for wallpapers, but even then it's a relatively shit source (full of kids just posting tits rather than actual decent wallpapers...)

Thank you for thinking about 4chan. We had tried to keep 4chan as is. But I failed. I am sincerely sorry. Some notice there are no more middle ads and bottom ads on 4chan. Ads don’t work well. So we reduced advertisement servers cost. 4chan can’t afford infrastructure costs, network fee, servers cost, CDN and etc, now. 4chan have three options.   -Halve the traffic cost limit uploading image sizes use slower servers. close some boards   -Much more ads pop-up / pop under ads malicious ads   -More 4chan pass users more features

I find the options given here hilarious.

Option 1, sort of makes sense. Option 2 is fucking hilarious and the idea of trying to sell "malicious ads" as a feature..... Option 3 seems like a guilt trip.

Anyway, doubt there's any truth to this other than to try and get more people to give them money, but still, thought it was worth discussing. An internet without 4chan....

That would be quite nice.

I haven't been to 4chan in a long time, especially since there are non shit sites dedicated to hosting good wallpapers.


If there is no image, Mikey broke something...

I thought 4chan was shut down a few years ago.

Didn't it get sold off to some Chinese firm? It's just a corporate entity now. I mean, that post itself reads like a Chinglish announcement. "WE NO MORE MAKE MONEY! WE CLOSE BOARD UNLESS YOU GIVE MONEY!"

No, that was Reddit. Reddit's new CEO was a Chinese.

But basically, the moral of the story is beware China.

That place was still around? Never visited, well maybe once by accident, but it always looked like an aweful place to me. But to each their own.
