At some point the majority of newfags stopped coming for /a/ or /b/ and were coming for /v/ or /pol/ instead.
Moot sold out when he realized 4chan was no longer a site for cultivating otaku/anime culture and just yet another normalfag shithole for arguing about culture wars.

I'm at 17 years (time, not age!), I ALMOST left this place after having just stayed on /jp/ and [s4s] for several years. I have crafted many memes in the meme factory. But even these 2 boards went to shit, filled with people trying too hard, filled with no-fun-allowed crowd.
I finally left like, around 2017-18.
When vtubers started gaining more traction, and one day in 2019 I decided to just come back to /jp/ to see gaki threads, I just happened to spot the vtuber thread and stuck around again.

I get what you're saying and the names for the labels are wrong but the dates are kinda accurate. I definitely noticed different kinds of newfags during those periods.
>2006 and earlier were all gigaweebs that are probably still hikkiNEETs to this day while lamenting how much the internet has changed and how they wish they could go back to those good old days.
>2007-2009 were /v/irgins who just came to actually talk about video games or underage /b/tards looking for jailbait pictures. Most of them did learn to lurk and assimilated properly into oldfags over time.
>2010-2012 were /adv/, /r9k/, etc tourists who thought 4chan was a dating site and just used it to make friends, pretty much going entirely against the purpose of anonymity. Most of them are now discordfags or became incels and moved to reddit.
>2013 onwards are gamergate tourists and /pol/tards who just came here because they were ostracized from every other social media platform. They're still fucking faggots and never bothered to lurk because they don't respect this site's history, to them it's just another place to argue about politics. They have no interest in anime or video games or anything but attaching themselves to a pet ideology.

Now this is in very broad terms and there's obviously outliers, but it's definitely obvious that every new generation of newfags is worse than the last. 2007 was the only generation that actually assimilated properly after lurking.

I have been banned/warned on /vt/ more than I have on this entire site. Usually for responding to a shitposter/roommate poster. However two of my bans were bullshit, one was for roommate posting when I just posted a Melissa clip talking about her gender (one of her most popular EN clips), one was for off topic posting but it was a fucking Kerin screenshot.

But 2007 was arguably the beginning of the end. It was flooded by outsiders on levels not seen since the Reddit invasion.
Chanology faggotry was the worst. In fact, Anonymous was the worst. This site was majority names and trips for years before that kind of faggotry took over thanks to that hyperweeb fuck Menchi. If Snacks never got kicked out thanks to moots childish little tantrum, the site probably wouldn't have went to shit because he'd be able to talk sense in to the dumb prick. God I hope Menchi offed himself. Same with Mohey Pori. Both of them utterly destroyed western imageboard culture.

Newfag (previously underage B&S) here, it’s been like 8-9 months since I discovered the site thanks to /cow/ and searching for Kiara rrats of all things and I wouldn’t have looked back after a certain point if not for @vt__txt reminding me this place exists

I think I only became a regular after April, although it helped that back in February when I was lurking (yes) that site, Reddit was circlejerking over their hate of Mushoku Tensei and things like Reddit Meme Review and r/goodanimemes didn’t convince me to keep browsing it. No, I’m not apologizing

I’ve tried to escape from this site before, but the alternatives are Twitter which is mostly cancer for almost any discussion and MAL which doesn’t give me too much interest and I would only use it for anime. Funny enough, I’ve been lurking on Twitter for almost a year and I only created an account recently, just in case

As for /vt/, I think the most shocking moments, or better said shitstorms, were everything related to the Connor arc and Yubigate, the Hololive x VShojo collabs and Coco’s graduation. Nowadays, I stay in my oshi’s general whenever she’s streaming, browse the catalog mostly ignoring bait, and sometimes visit (and jerk off) to threads like HFZ and UOH

You know? While this board can give migraines due to things like tribalism and dramafagging, it certainly helped me to learn a bit more about vtubing, in the past and the present. I’m still a Holofag, but if I stayed in any other site, I don’t think I would know who is Kaguya Luna, Kuzuha or Pippa. I certainly gained a new perspective of a few things

Oh, I also visit some of the other boards. /a/ is not that bad and I keep going for the MHA threads; /v/ is of questionable quality but I still like visiting it and it’s not totally useless; I only go to /b/ for the loli threads; /pol/ is mental; /qa/ is probably the worst board I visited; I didn’t know /po/ was a thing but I’m glad for its existence.

And go where? where else on the entire Internet can you have a conversation without some spiteful faggot trying to turn it into their personal cause to ruin your life because you said some innocuous shit? Reddit is too busy giving themselves pointless badges and I'm pretty sure spending time on Twitter is giving people brain damage.

I thin the board that suffers the most from this is /v/. It's an absolute cesspool now and nigh unbrowseable. It didn't help in the slightest how they spliced it into 4 new boards last year either. Everyone treats "fun" as a buzzword, and there is only value in seeing new games crash and burn rather than celebrate that they're good games. There are exceptions too, but this is the baseline.

The first time I heard about this website was in 2008 or 2009, but I would only occasionally visit /a/, /b/ or /v/ like once every 3 months or so, and only lurked. I didn't want to come here too often because it was too addictive. The next thing I know is Fubuki singing Scatman, effectively guiding me to /jp/ and sealing my fate of coming to this site every day since then. I just can't leave, I'm having way too much fun.

10 years. I came here because I've heard about /b/ in some guys youtube video. Lurked /b/ for a while until I stumbled upon ks/b/, downloaded Katawa Shoujo and started spending most of my time in there. Eventually I started watching anime, playing more vns and started mostly lurking /a/ and /jp/. Became too busy IRL around 2017 so I left, came back on 2020 after getting into vtubers around Hololive's gen4 debut

8 years here, watching Kill la Kill with /a/ was one hell of a ride and despite being too underage to recognize it's greatness it truly was the last good anime Trigger did. After the abomination that was Promare at least I'm glad I got to enjoy it with my daughterwife.

15 years on and off, mostly off since 2015. The hololive global general on /jp/ was unironically a brief return to form of the best years I'd seen on 4chan, and its steady decline punctuated by periods of free-fall is a perfect mirror of what happened to 4chan as a whole.

Reality check: while 4chan did indeed steadily get shittier and shittier, it was the only place with anyone fighting the decline. Every other internet community got much shittier, much faster.
