Two panels, Two Powerpoints

Shortly after the creation of the Yotsuba Society Websites in 2011 I applied to do a panel for Katsucon 17. The panel was called “The Imageboard World”. It was held by me, my co-founder Xantar, Charizard, and another person called Nostalgia. I was a basic panel about imageboards, a few pictures here and then of the front pages of the *chans, and one stage about “Stages of a Channer” from one of my articles. A few people attended, and for some reason Katsucon liked my panel.

1chan – “Some Chinese train pics”

1chan is an imageboard solely for one topic: Railroads. Railroads of all types: Locomotives, subways, trams, commuter rail, Steamers, foamers. It has a small dedicated community of tripfags, some of them are in the railway industry itself. The site is managed by “thatdog”, who is a Something Awful Forums Goon and is managed by moderators such as Kartma and t3h_fuhr3r (which is not related to the late German genocidal dictator Adolf Hitler).

(Mostly Perceived) Fear and Loathing of Reddit

4chan and by extent, the chanverse has been loathing the link-sharing social media site Reddit since 2011. Most of the loathing comes from Reddit picking up memes that 4chan decided to end and keep spreading them out across the internet. This limitation isn’t related to memes or catch phrases, but also other 4chan boards such /v/ and /a/ as those two boards also loathe reddit for their own community or culture related reasons.

A Special Message Regarding Our "Hibernation"

It’s a long time since I’ve made a new update. I’ve been through a lot of shit lately with school and family. But I still have not forgotten about the website. The IRC still there, and I get the occasional email from a fan or a oldfag who approaches what I do. Even though this site has been in hibernation since we were forced to move out of our shared server and into a new server where I have to upload everything. Sadly due to a fault due to a rush of resources the front page is not available for viewing until now.

"tuesday is backup day"

4chan /g/ - tuesday is backup day Anonymous 01/22/13(Tue)11:11 No.30914910
For anyone who owns a computer, even a netbook, it’s a no brainer to do regular backups. Even a simple online backup solution for small files such as dropbox is much better than simply putting your trust in one day. All technology is fragile, and can break at anytime. For those who are power users, they don’t need a reminder they’re too busy doing other important stuff (like schoolwork or finding a job.)

All 4chan threads from 2008 to 2012 are uploaded.

By the time you read this, all the threads I have from 4chan from 2008 to 2012 are now uploaded. This project has been in the works since the Yotsuba Society website was launched. After 18 months, I've succeeded in making the operation a success. From now on, every month we will be uploading updates to the archives of the 4chan portion of the threads. While doing so I will begin uploading threads from other major *chans in the chanverse beginning this month.

Things we learned during the first year of YSchan.

When I first started the Yotsuba Society Boards, I knew that it will never be popular as 4chan. Even though a couple of times they said that it has plenty of potential. The sad truth that anyone can make a chan but it takes a lot of effort to make it into an active chan site. There were big plans that I wanted to do with it, like having the ability to upload video of like mp4’s and the like and have everyone view them.
