I'm not sure about everyone else here, but I'm not quite 30. But I will be turning 30 later this year. So I guess close enough, eh? I've spending majority of my time online since Windows 95 came out and my family decided to get AOL with those disks with the free hours. Eventually later paying for the services until my area got broadband in late '99. Not sure exactly how I alone could influence the culture with my decades of experience online. However, I'm willing to share anything that I can with those who may be interested.

 No.3012

Most 30+ anons I know (meaning people that are embracing anon that I talk to online, obviously I don't know their identities if they're anons) stopped lurking or look for good imageboards.
They just have clanlike websites, chatrooms or whatever that they visit daily, weekly or so and keep contact with the same likeminded people.

If we ignore that most of freuds thesis' are bs, he's got some kind of a point with his phases of live stuff.
Teens looks for their identity, ppl in their twenties are most likely to have them found and now look to achieve things within the goals their identity dictates them.
So we'll most likely find people here who either go through a phase of being an anon like 13y/o pseudo elite haxx0rs or people that have really settled their minds on being anon in their freetime of surving the www.
the next phasis are things like finding love, making babies and leaving things behind for the world. Most people in ages of 30 that don't want to follow the social norm or can't because of social failure, are more likely to look for something like an internet family.
Imageboards are not family, they are gates that lead into chance of finding something interesting.

24 here and I'd bet most people here are in their 20s because 1. most people already wrote they are and 2. the edgy teens who identityshift prefer big boards.

First time coming by this thread in over two years and I see I have a reply. Well, the internet was far better that's for sure. I'd say the decline definitely started to gain a lot more traction around 2007-2008 and took a very steep nosedive into shit around 2012 onward. Although you had problems "culturally" on the internet that were beginning to form during this period. I will have to say for people looking for digital files, torrents, and streaming sites it was getting much easier to do so and having access to pirating material much easier in better quality than the past. Especially with watching anime online if you didn't have the storage or couldn't find a torrent of what you were looking for. That was something much harder to do in the early 2000s unless you were well connected or part of plenty of groups doing some rips and fansubs. Of course there were plenty of forums as well, so most people who were regularly getting online in those communities usually found most of what they were looking for. At least from my personal experience. Quality on the other hand was really the main difference for me later on. Either way, I still look back to the old days of the internet with a lot of fondness and nostalgia. I'd gladly go back if that were possible.

>They just have clanlike websites, chatrooms or whatever that they visit daily, weekly or so and keep contact with the same likeminded people
True but then there's some of us who have lost our "internet families" and "internet homes" to modern issues such as political problems, differences in privacy concerns, and just people shunning each other over simple ideological differences. I still have places that I visit but a lot of them are dying small communities which a lot of have left for reddit, discord, and other larger websites that's contributed in my opinion in killing the older web as older anons like myself were much more comfortable in. So, I also still surf around from imageboard to imageboard seeing what's going on from time to time. Making my way back here to wirechan. Although being over two years now, I'm here again.

im 20 and i basically chose imageboards and forums over social media offically a bout a year ago, and its made me look like more of a loser and i now have basically no one to talk to but i feel more at home at least
i spend most of my time with no one but my own presence.
id be fucking surprised if i were to ever find a permanent group or family from a board or anything of the sort, let alone a partner
discord is a hellscape and each day i get more tempted to delete my account and never look back, i regret making it back in 2015. its the only thing i cant bring myself to delete and move on to find people that are more like me..
irc is full of people beyond my level of jaded that i just cant relate with either because theyre like in their 30s-40s or theyre so far gone they have such a twisted view on the world its disheartening to say the least
not saying that i dont, but some people are worse than others

 No.3333

>>3301 social media/discord must be taken in well-regulated doses, and that goes for the more draining of irl interactions as well. if you find a niche in discord that isn't populated servers, and it over the years becomes a place you talk to friends rather than communities, than there's some good there, but that isn't without it's trial and error (but I mean, irl goes the same way as well.)
it's unfortunate when the only people that can be connected with cannot be found irl, but only through the wired. it's still a situation many including myself face.
the lasting things seem to always happen by 'chance,' and that seems to be something that can't be planned for or decided on as many things like that are

it depends on your major, some are kinda useless and don't teach much. and no matter what gen-ed is useless and painful
make sure to get practical experience like internships and observation hours, if those go right they should teach you how to actually use what learn in class

I have to agree, people mention 4chan here like it's sacred. "I can't believe how much 4chan has gone downhill" I'm inexperienced to the site, since I have made an active decision to avoid it.

Also I don't post here often, but I do read all of it because the pace here is slow and easy. In a roundabout way, don't try to emanate the behaviour of another chan here. Individuality is what sets us apart.

I would like to make myself very clear here: You are quite possibly the faggiest OP I have ever encountered in my countless years of imageboard wizardhood. Please let me explain.
There is extreme irony when you complain about other users ruining the quality of the site. Your own contribution here is a thread which speculates the age of the userbase, 3 years of silence and then complaints about 4chan refugees. To make it even worse, you can not even write proper sentences in the English language; Your writing comes off as some kind of half-assed stream of consciousness that gets written down as new stuff pops in your head.
So, here you are posing as an elite user of the site who just "gets" the culture and determines what kind of images can and cannot be posted. An elite user who has to escape to better sites with other elite users when this one gets suck-y because of what, 4chan refugees? There were only 2 replies that even mentioned 4chan and why would anyone give a shit? At least they were written in proper English unlike your HIV-inducing verbal diarrhea.

Why would you speculate 3 years of silence? Why would that be a bad thing? Is it better to be aTwitter style addict posting 24/7? Or maybe not to post at all and lurk?

I would be remiss if I didn't point out the irony of calling this a woke forum.
It's definitely a little bit absurd, backward, balmy, boneheaded, crazy, cretinous, daft, dense, dim-witted, dull, dumb, empty-headed, feeble-minded, foolish, gormless, half-baked, half-witted, idiotic, ignorant, imbecilic, insane, mad, mindless, moronic, rash, reckless, ridiculous, senseless, simple, simple-minded, slow-witted, soft, thick, thoughtless, unintelligent, unqualified, unreasonable, unsophisticated, unwise, weak-minded, or witless to call this a woke forum in my opinion.

Yet, I'm as woke as they come. I'm a catholic whore, currently enjoying congress out of wedlock with my black, Jewish boyfriend who works in a military abortion clinic. So hail Satan, and have a lovely afternoon, madam.

Sometimes imageboards are great. Someone who is on the same wavelength as you joins the discussion. You connect and share your thoughts and insights to each other. You feel connected and inspired by some random anon from the other side of the world. In the best case scenario those beautiful moments stay with you for the rest of your life.
Sometimes imageboards are not so great. You try to express your thoughts in a clear way to initiate a discussion. An anon enters and completely either ignores or fails to understand the content of your posts and the thread gets filled with angry insults and white noise.
All I can gather from your message is that my comment about IQ probably made you feel inferior, perhaps powerless, which in turn made you angry. Your post brings absolutely nothing of value to this thread (or Wirechan in general), quite the opposite. You did not respond to any of the content of my post, instead you chose to churn out a weak attack on my character.
