Shitty software and 12K wasted on making a superior software that was worse than the already shitty software

A userbase that is so autistic that it went on a screeching fit whenever the genetic dud attempted advertising on reddit, something that would be useful and would have helped the site

the genetic dud allowing /ints/ to exist and to raid any board which would attempt to setup home on 8gag

the genetic dud allowing intra-board raiding in general

the genetic dud handing over all the big-boards to his IRC-circlejerk buddies

the genetic dud being a genetic dud

the genetic dud being a lazy piece of shit and using a vichan hack from the begging

Concerns about ownership and the fact that they couldn't establish themselves as a legitimate community. I tried to use it for like two months, but the only thing people talked about was how bad moot and 4chan were as opposed to building a community that could replace it.

Not kidding here, I actually went there for a couple of years when moot cucked us out and the whole mod leak happened. I'll give you the short and simple run down of everything that went wrong.

That site was in the asscrack of the internet before Gamergate. Notice how /v/ and /pol/ are the two top board there? That's why. Freddy or the genetic dud as we'll call him came up with the idea for the site when tripping on shrooms (I'm not shitting you).

He had a broship with Joshua Moon and equally bad coder programmer etc. Things went smooth until Gamergate came along and the dud had to make space for actual server use. He was originally heavily involved with Gamergate but that shit wore him down over time due to childish scandals, in fights and drama perpetuated by BOs from the /v/ board and Twatter cliques. The dud lost interest in being invested in the site even when the current GG board's BO collected info on posters he didn't like and sent that shit to the FBI hoping they would get V& for shit posting and then cried that the very same people tried to swat him when later digging showed that he lied about the whole thing and even the local PD agreed.

This is only a small sample of the regular drama that went on there that caused a schism in the community itself and the whole hostile takeover of the /pol/ board was an even bigger shit show.

Fast forward and the site not only had jaded SJWs cutting off all funding to the site, but it was getting hit with the lizardskid's DDoS tool on a regular basis. Some theorize it was Jim (2ch's owner) more on that later and Jim came in and "generously" offered server space and protection to the dud "out of the goodness of his own heart". Does this shit sound familiar? It should because this is exactly the same circumstances that began when Jim came under control of 2ch. This ending was no different.

By some shady paperwork behind closed doors Jim now owns the site.
>>
>>61860927
Functionally the website was great, the userbase tho was complete shit, even worse than 4chan and that's saying something.
>>
>>61860927
because of (((Jim)))
He wanted to turn the site into making a profit, and in turn pissed off most of the community with his actions and rampant censorship (Avoiding censorship was one of the reasons it became popular in the first place)

With its already dead userbase, there was a hack back on April 1st that wiped the entire site, so they had to restore from a backup that was several months old, driving away the last of its users

Josh tried to split and make 16 chan based off of the original ideals behind eight chan, but fell short of time and money to maintain it, shutting it down after just a few weeks

t. Very active user of Eight chans /tech/ board before it got fucked

(I still think /tech/ was lightyears better than /g/ has ever been)

It billed itself as a free speech board, but you are far, far, far more likely to be banned from a given board there for holding the wrong opinions. Except they'll just say you're "shilling" and suppressing speech becomes acceptable.

Basically the exact same thing as reddit but catering to right-wing faggot conspiracy theorists.

This caused a shift in friendship between Josh and the dud and the site was site haywire and the dud conveniently blamed it all on Josh. Jim used the dud as a human shield because he knew everyone still trusted them even though he sold out his community long before (more on that later) and the site remained a gigantic cluster fuck of a mess even to this day. The dud is basically living with Jim in gook land, has no way home and his only job is being a human shield. Don't feel sorry for him, he did it to himself.

Then the bedchan leaks happened and proved the site was not only storing user data, but had it all the way back to 2014. Jim also took over in such Communist stile Kim Jong Un would be jealous. He banned all negative talk about him, made his son Ron the admin who can't code to save his life and the site shows it and then not only nuked a bunch of boards but blamed it on CP which was a blatant lie which was alienating to users who for years debunked MSM articles saying the site was a haven for CP.

Jim and Ron denied the leaks left and right but never debunked them. This would happen on a regular basis but the biggest shitstorm was during the April Fools hack on the site which Endchan covered very well.

http://archive.is/hcMn4

To date the site is a hughox that only houses the crowds who originally came from Gamergate and the Redditards who they attracted. The parity it has with 7chan is astounding because GGers are like the new maskfags. moot kicked them off the site so they went to another site to maskfag. They couldn't culturally transcend Gamergate so they stagnated and died yet still have the hubris to believe they are superior to us. History repeats itself.

>>61861128
Cripplekike really had a chance though thanks to gg, but he seriously fucked up by letting trolls and shitposter roam freely because muh freedumb of speech. That prevented it from growing, later technical problems and that fat fucking faggot shitnigger Josh put the nail in the coffin introducing drama and unstability, the site had constant errors, downtime and the new interface was shit. After that the stablished userbase started leaving too.

The userbase is so stratified; multiple tech-related boards with overlapping demographics. Plus, no custom CSS `a la 4chanX including kind of imperative stuff if you're dealing with multiple slow boards like thread watching and cross-board filters.

8ch isn't a site like a forum like wakachan or 4-ch where there's only really one board that everyone browses, and there's a clear delineation between other interest boards.

The most annoying thing about that site is the smug anti-4chan circlejerking. Not the fact that it exists, because circlejerking like that happens everywhere, but the ceaselessness of it. Every minute of every hour of every day was filled with people whining about 4chan without a hint of irony. At least when idiots scream about Reddit or Tumblr here it's mostly done to piss someone off.

Seriously this without a doubt. The hubris of the posters there knew no bounds. They spawned a culture similar to SomethingAwful which was ironic since they hated them. The basically hated anyone that wasn't them unless they kissed the rings. They were the imageboard version of "it's ok when we do it". They have no room to criticize the things moot has done in 4chan's entire existence when Jim has done even worse in less than two years.
>>
>>61861786
I literally made hundreds of posts in the early days about how this needed to be moved on from if they wanted to actually build a new community and I got called a faggot every single time. How bad 4chan was and how much "better" that place was all they fucked talked about.

It had a real chance to actually do something and they pissed it all away. I guess it's the internet mirroring life in a way, whenever a rebellion achieves any measure of success they usually can't move past bitching about the past government/administration. So much easier to criticize than it is to create something.

There's something you really have to give moot credit for. The strategy in which mods are silent and anonymous really does minimise the bullshit.

I mean people bitch about thread deletions and mods being on the rag but they get over it and people don't spend months going out of their way to personally start shit with a particular mod in the current environment.

Nah, I should had probably worded that better. The one who did this was the owner of the current Gamergate board, AcidMan AKA Cole Lamberson. In the beginning there was the original /gg/ board run by NikiofDeath. At the time the dud was heavily involved with the GG community since it gave his site life.

Niko did an innocent troll by fooling people he would make a twatter troll a mod. The dud jumped in, took his own board from him (so much for freedom to just create another board huh?) and that was that. He gave the board back but the damage was done.

The next board was /gamergate/ and that was run by Bladee who was involved with an autistic clique of wanna be trolls who called themselves the AyyTeam who failed at trolling harder than Weev. Bladee had an autistic diabetic meltdown one day without warning and gave his board to the trolls. /gamergate/ went down with no survivors.

During this time there were polls on the /v/ board to decide which GG board would represent them. Mark, the owner of the /v/ board rigged the choices so only boards his clique liked would be there. His main man he backed was AcidMan who is possibly the biggest lolcow in imageboard history. The doxing and digging on him on the /cow/ and /baphomet/ boards are things of legend.

Acidman instantly set up a cucked rulebook for the board, instigated cross board raids and fights along with his buddies on the sub Reddit board Kotaku in Action and was generally a horrible liar. He also tried to get people to attack the community Voat which should have been where GG migrated to after Reddit cucked them out, but they didn't have the balls or foresight and AcidMan didn't like the people who posted there so he tried to raid it instead, and failed.

He most famously lied about being swatted which he used to justify doxing posters he didn't like and try to hand their info to the FBI. The dud surprisingly did nothing about an FBI snitch but trolling your own board was off limits.

People keep looking at Reddit's "build your own sub" situation as some aspirational goal.

But that model only works because Reddit was overflowing with users and needed to offload them from the popular subs.

It's the same problem Voat had - introduce a system where there are tonnes of boards on a new site with a small number of users and all you get is a thousand people split across 20 boards for a common subject.

The story is like this. Hiroyuki Nishimura was tricked by Jim Watkins, a former military, who owned 2ch servers but not the forum itself. Watkins made a silent coup on Hiroyuki and took over his domain, then the 2ch owned by Watkins was hacked and was revealed he was selling data AND that Hiroyuki wasn't the owner anymore. Later on, Jim Watkins offered free hosting to eightchan's former owner, hotwheels, but during a mysterious DDoS to the website he deviated the traffic to a domain of his own, nobody noticed. He is now the owner of eightchan, the wheel guy is no longer the owner, just a janitor with high privileges (or not so).

Blocking the creation of more boards, avoiding the purge from bad mods and the racist groups that landed on /pol/, making a coup in 4chan and silently sending people to the other chan are the strategies of these assholes.

This is not an accusation against Hiroyuki or is talking about 4chan been redirected, the real scammer is Jim Watkins and the redirect was long ago done in 2ch and 8ch, not 4chan.

They didn't just ban Tor browsers, they started banning entire VPN blocks. If I remember correctly an entire STATE was blocked for a short time because Ron is just that stupid.

>>61867261
A lot of people theorize that Jim used the Lizard Stresser tool. He's that technologically illiterate so it may have very well been. The dud also knew the attack was coming from the DDoS service. Ever since the user list for the Lizard Stresser got leaked in plain text people said that any usernames or real names that he or Ron uses should be checked in that list because if either of them DO show up then that could open up a legal shitstorm of biblical proportions.

The fact that Jim came in to offer server space right after all the DDoS attacks exactly mirrors what happened to 2ch and the newfags on cripplechan were too wet behind the ears to know they were repeating history.

And on the terms of datamining, Ron's github profiles and things like that literally have things like IP trackers Facebook style.

I still enjoy 8/v/ and /pol/ to their 4ch counter paths. But the rest of the boards like /co/ /agdg/ /b/ are severely watered down garbage. The severely low amount of users are just as shit as the ones from 4chan.

Too many boards. There are a ton of boards that revolve around similar topics, and because of that, lots of these boards are dead. And since there’s no activity on those boards, current viewers of those boards won’t post. It’s completely dead.
>>
Has no one mentioned they basically stored all IPs and then those got leaked not long ago? I still remember going and seeing a big "never bareride and imageboard again" with a VPN advertisement and faggots acting like it was the users fault. And just now I discover they banned VPNs and Tor at some point, how fucking hypocrite and faggot do you have to be to do this? Thank god I have dyn. IP and only posted on some niche boards.
>>
>>61872857
At least you can post there with tor or a vpn

You're thinking of Josh, former owner of KiwiFarms and an ebin lolcow himself.
>>
>>61872857
Yeah, people mentioned that already. Jim's end game was different though and a lot of people saw it coming. He didn't just sell server space, he also sold VPN services. Everyone's guess was he would ban normal VPNs to sell his own but his whole argument for banning them in the first place was muh CP posters so that excuse didn't work.

>>61872830
That and the fact that boards were always at eachother's throats. /GamergateHQ/ sabotaged shitloads of boards and Jim as well as his son secretly caused discord in other boards just so they could be replaced by boards Ron had control over such as /polk/ and /sudo/. The owners are rotten to the core and sadly their userbase isn't much better.

i disagree. tiny echo chamber circlejerk boards would become so slow and boring to participants, that they would start posting on active boards they like, becoming part of actual communities there. ability to split off into own boards allows containment of such autist cliques. they can sperg out among themselves. every minute they post there is a minute not spent shitposting on valuable boards.
the boards that are really dead simply fulfilled their role. and for every couple hundred dead ones, some anon may come up with a good idea for a new community that actually becomes popular.
>>
>>61860927
Wasn't it always the home of dumb autists?
>>
>>61860927
Maybe dilution of content. Because everybody could make their own boards if they disagreed with an existing one it split the communities so there wasn't the constant conflict like on 4chan that keeps us coming back for more.
>>
>>61873609
It's a little amazing how from 2ch to 4chan to 8ch/8 chan, the destinies and politics intertwined.
>>
>>61860927
Because it attracted the worst the Internet has to offer - pedophiles, alt-right retards, militant atheists, MUH FREE SPEECH libertariantards, etc.

It's because learningchode basically owns 90% of the top boards there

I wish there was a 8chX, then maybe I would browse.

I can barely use any chans now because I have gotten so used to 4chX.
>>
>>61876961
Leftypol is the only non-insane board on 8ch.
You don't have to agree with them, but you can agree they are normal channers like everybody else.
The rest of the boards are literally full of paranoid schizos.
