Flash is not dead, Flash will never be dead.

Youtube will die before flash dies.

We grew up with Newgrounds, and while other platforms fall to their own greed, Flash will live on in the nostalgia it evokes from our hearts and the genuineness of its original content.

i dunno. sometimes flash almost feels like something outside of time, like it just goes on and on and on like an edifice of the internet. i think the way it exists is kind of too alive to be pinned down in the same way video/audio/etc is, and as long as there's internet and adobe actually opens it up and lets enthusiasts develop it (which i think is kinda inevitable), flash'll go on. rip ytmnd, though. i loved you more than i ever even knew.
>>
ZOMG my thread got a sticky!

>>3390509
It wasn't connecting earlier, glad to see it was only disconnected due to maintenance. Hopefully it comes back online soon. The last time I had checked the site, the owner hadn't seemed to have interacted in a long while; everyone assumed the worst. Hopefully archive.org already has an effort going to preserve the most important sites.

Every old internet bastion around me is falling and I don't know what's going to happen now. The internet of the 2000's is long gone. It somewhat saddens me future generations will know nothing of the independent internet, stuck behind the walled gardens of the corporate behemoths that make up 90% of the web today.

;_;
>>
>>3390672
Well SA still exists, whether it's a bastion is up for debate but it's older than most websites so I suppose you could read those old threads; hmmm . . . there's still those flash loop sites and newgrounds has all of their unblammed entries and undeleted forum threads.
It is looking pretty grim for that type of content. I hope this gets some people a motive to archive independent sites that they enjoy.

What is actually preventing anyone from creating passion-run independent content-creation sites? Sure, most people are on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. today but most of the content they share is just mad boring cookie-cutter shit that grows stale within a month or two that an independent site can do without. Really, we just need a good, original idea to base it on.

>>3390675
The copyright-slammed stuff is still on NG. The pages for them are gone but the actual content is still up.

From KYM:
>"In an email correspondence with Know Your Meme on May 16th, Goldberg revealed he had no idea the site had been down for several days and only found out after seeing news coverage about its purported shutdown. That day, a page with a "YTMND Is Down" banner graphic was placed on YTMND.com, notifying viewers that the site had "suffered a catostrophic failure" and it was uncertain if it would return (shown below)."
We coming back boys!
>>
>>3390814
not trying to rip on him but a well-known site like that without backups is a little strange. fortunately archive.org took a backup of the site in 2018 so it'll at least be preserved:
https://twitter.com/textfiles/status/1128517332064772098
he could theoretically use archive.org's backup to repopulate a new database as best as possible but i read that YTMND admin has health issues so I understand if he don't want to spend time on that, especially if those health issues are terminal (he didn't say)

the old internet is dying, but at least /f/ and a handful of old textboards are still around, r- right?

>>3390972
but for how much longer?
I think of the 2020s now, it was hard to imagine the 2010s, but we're getting closer and closer to the 20th anniversary. I can't imagine a website like 4chan going on for much longer. It really is a great website, even with all the bullshit
>>
>>3390973
4chan will at least continue for the next few years, and /f/ is unlikely to get deleted. Smaller imageboards and textboards will still be around years from now. That being said, many older sites are dying or dwindling in user base. I don't know how well things will turn out in the end, but I suspect slow decline and death.

lol at thinking there will be any security issues on a dead board with a dead format
think people will spend time to create malware that fishes maybe 10 people on an internet forum=?
if there are even any security issues at all
opening downloaded flashes with a sandboxed projector provides basically zero risk

wow, you guys are new
stickys are really rare, sure, but there have still been countless ones on /f/ over the decades
maybe it's hard to notice, because stickys are only visible on the reply page
the last one was the announcement of flash's death in 2017 I think
also: 100 posts? nothin personell kid, but come on zone's level. hkeygirl5 thread got like 3-400 replies, without being a sticky

>>3390925
yes, because it suffered isolation from other boards due to it being fundamentally different in nature, making the board culture go down entirely different roads of quality
>>
rip in piece

the fact that he didn't realize it was even down is a sad reminder of how much time has gone by. I can't believe how much time I've been online and how many entire internet cultures have come and gone.

It was a good right gentlemen. I hope to see you after this is all over.

posting in an epic sticky. Even though YTMND is allegedly dying, I still legitimately cannot see flash as a whole ever "dying", as in people stop making flashes and using them.
>>
>>3391033
that's because ytmnd was a website
and flash is a format
sure /f/ can go down, but not .swfs in general
nobody stops you from creating a new website just like ytmnd from scratch right now, no cooporation can take that from you

making myself known on this tiny ass board community as the 150th unique poster to wish ytmnd a fond farewell.

innocence is dying boyos. before youtube and facebook's malevolent monetization schemas poisoned the world, we were content to post low bitrate mp3s over shitty word art and indiscernibly over-compressed gif loops.

m00t may have been a faggot, but he was our faggot
m00t already lost interest and then this site quite some time ago now
the only entity caring for us now is gookmoots hottolinku coorporate conglomerate
you have already been reduced to just a datamine, it's well past that point
even infinitychan wasn't safe, pretty much straight from the beginning things took a turn into also hiroshimoot and his businesspartners favor
at some point /f/ has to go D E E P E R into some other amateur chan
it's not like we care so much about the other boards here, pretty much any chan featuring a flash board could do
maybe we should decide on this rather sooner than later
imagine, a chan just for /f/

This will happen if /f/ ever gets the axe here. Like the well-loved small community that was iichan's /azu/. The only place from there that still exists, though now hosted elsewhere. I firmly believe /f/ is the sole relic of the old spirit of 4chan that will never die.
