I have a suspicion that you are all older people and would be surprised to find someone under 30 here, meaning people who can in some way influence this or any future decades culture.

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.

I still have my looks and hair is long with no signs of receding, thinning, and/or balding in any way. Honestly I wish it would thin a little bit. My hair is extremely thick. Sadly the thinning friendships part is true. I lost all of my friends by the age 24, haven't been able to make any since.

 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

I'm also 19 with a somewhat similar story. But instead of a terminally online programmer uncle, I had a hyper-paranoid terminally online dad. He spent a lot of time shit talking the government and privacy invasion, which made me stray away from social media because of their telemetry.

shit dad but he was kinda right about how much the world sucks so I guess props for that
