4chan GET Encyclopedia

From Bibliotheca Anonoma

Stolen from Lurkmore's GET Encyclopedia.

A GET is a post that was, for example, posted as the first reply of a post (2GET) or to mark milestone posts, especially in /b/, such as 10,000GET, 100,000GET, 11111GET, 23456789GET, etc. The desirability of achieving a GET originated on 2chan and rapidly adopted by 4chan. When a new posting milestone is near, /b/'s already high rate of posting increases tremendously, as the /b/tards scramble to score a GET. GETs often create new memes, which is the primary reason that they are considered desirable. GETs were originally only left to /b/, however, interest in GETs increased on /a/, probably due to the board having enough posts for high-number GETs to occur, and has since spread to other boards. In true /b/tard tradition, when a GET is seen as shitty it is blamed on the mods, as unreasonable as that might be.

The concept of GET originated on 2channel, where 2GET and 1000GET, the first and last possible replies to a thread, are the ones considered desirable, but is modified on 4chan due to 4chan being primarily imageboards rather than text-based message boards. On the text boards, 2ch style GETs are sometimes seen.

GETs on boards other than /b/ are noticed and celebrated as well, especially on the larger boards such as /v/ and /a/, though they rarely get as much attention as /b/'s GETs. Sometimes, boards will try to "steal" GETs from each other, with their memes. /b/'s 10M "HazukiGET" is sometimes considered to be stolen by /a/ - in turn, /a/'s 1M MilhouseGET is considered to be a /b/ or /co/ theft, and so on. Much myth surrounds these since the distinction between board userbases isn't nearly as clear as some would like you to believe - and if /b/ with its massive force tries to steal a GET, it's over anyway.


A failed attempt at a GET is known as a FAILGET (or failGET), a term which is also used to describe a GET that wasn't interesting in the least (the post just sucked). Conversely, an awesome GET is sometimes called a WINGET (winGET).

It is standard to respond to failed GET attempts, such as an Anon trying for 2GET and being the 3rd post of a thread, to call out Anon's failures and to humiliate him for failing so badly at life.


At some point, code was added to 4chan to automatically sticky GETS, this feature caused consistent controversy whenever it was used, which led Anon to yell MODGET, especially when they thought the GET was a failGET. Though it seems auto-sticky has since been disabled, likely due to moot realizing how idiotic that is, Anonymous still claims modGET every so often.

First GETs[edit]

/b/ was reset several times during 4chan's initial, chaotic incarnations. The first GET did not arrive until April 2004.

1 on /co/
a .gif of Zoidberg from Futurama attempting to use a slinky, and having it catch on fire.

February 20, 2008. Cirno from Touhou being promoted. A failget as she was going for the ⑨.
10 GET on /jp/ - the first CirnoGET
100 on /jp/
February 20, 2008. Cirno, with the image from 6666666 on /a/. Failed at getting 99. 99 was a text post of "Don't you think you're overreacting? We appreciate a new board but the reason all that was in /a/ was because it has its own community. Stuff happens on /a/ that you can't quite get anywhere else, and if you want to talk about vn's or something it was the place you were most likely to find someone with a shared interest"
999 on /jp/
February 20, 2008. Overdrive animated gif from Touhou, in a Cirno thread. The user's name was ➈ ➈ ➈ ➈ ➈ ➈ ➈ ➈ ➈. Close enough that he should stop trying until it's time for 6666 and 9999.
1000 on /jp/
February 20, 2008. "1000 GET" with an photo of delicious dumplings. Considered a minor winget.

6666 on /jp/
February 20, 2008. The first real winget.
6666 on /jp/ is an upside down Cirno

100000 GET on /b/
100k on /u/
October 18, 2006. "I has a flute" Since 100KGET was an off-topic, utter /b/tard failget that was promptly deleted, it was agreed upon in the aftermath to nominate a picture of Shirou Emiya holding a sword drawn by tripfag Velox edited into Chikane Himemiya holding a flute by tripfag Kebinu as the 'honorary' 100K get.
123456 on /g/

April 8, 2007. "damn I really wanna see Shiznat fuck their own kids wouldn't that be cool /u/?" No image. Posted in a thread featuring artwork of the girls holding hypothetical test tube children. Not only a failget, but a sad and telling indication of just how deeply the Shiznat cancer has metastasized itself in /u/. Met with derision.
137000 GET on /u/
190k on /e/
October 31, 2006. "what's the source of OP?" Anonymous later commented that this was the most relevant non-/b/ get ever.

September 13, 2007. Desu GET. A picture of Suiseiseki wearing a nightgown. Decried by some for deliberately seeking a GET, which /c/ has never really cared about before. However, it was generally accepted as at least somewhat win. The thread quickly became an ordinary Suiseiseki thread.

500k on /b/
"meh meh 500k or not?" Image of a blue LED, user was supposedly banned for this post. Everyone attempting to create a Blue LED-tan meme was also banned. The thread was the place W.T.Snacks said the telling 'You don't "get" /b/.' comment, exhibiting the lack of regard the Mods had for the original Anonymous Imageboard culture, and considered the moment from when /b/ stopped being the awesome place that it had been.
500k on /co/
January 28, 2007. LiefeldGET. The image was of an infamously bad artist named Robert Liefeld with the text "I'm a good artist!" and the name field filled in with "Rob Liefeld".

July 30, 2007. Marisa Kirisame of Touhou, beating out numerous /a/ssholes flooding Lucky Star. It was subsequently argued whether this GET belonged to /a/, to /v/ or to fail, but this became moot as the thread ceased to exist within minutes.
600k on /co/
March 11, 2007. Super Skrull GET. Image of the comic character Super-Skrull. Was hailed a failGET by many. Became recognized after the recent emergence of the Skrull meme on /co/.

March 26, 2007. April O´Neil´s tits GET.
650000 GET on /co/

April 8, 2007. Slyde Get. A random reply by Anonymous containing only the text "Slyde", referring to an obscure Marvel Comics villain who has a following on /co/ due to a highly amusing appearance in a somewhat recent Spider-Man issue, in which he tries to act like he's Spidey's arch-rival and utters lines such as "Did you not see the Slyde Punch?". Due to Slyde's popularity on the board, it was considered a WinGET despite its ordinary nature.
700000 GET on /co/
777777 on /co/
April 26, 2007. AkiraGET. /a/ get in an /a/ related thread.
777777 GET on /co/
799999, 800000, and 800001 on /co/
April 30, 2007. Slyde Get 2. Unlike the first Slyde Get, this one was a deliberate attempt by the tripfag "███████Tripfag████████ !REDREDLOGo" (800K was also the first time the /co/mrades actually flooded the board in pursuit of a GET). It contained the text "SURAIDO GET!" (Engrish for "SLYDE GET", thus implying that Tripfag is a weeaboo), and a picture of Slyde being shot in the head during the Civil War: War Crimes one-shot, which is the 4th and most recent time that Slyde has been killed. While the GET received a somewhat mixed response (as it depicted the death of a /co/ favorite), it was mostly considered another WinGET. Especially in light of it defeating a TrollGET attempt (a picture of Iron Man, who's widely hated on /co/, and the text "All hail", which ended up as /co/'s 799999th post. This FailGET was considered highly appropriate. The other near-miss, at 800001, was a picture of Monty Python's Spanish Inquisition, with no text. This was considered awesome because, appropriately, no one expected it. Some argued that it would've made a better GET than Slyde, but others felt that its appearance immediately after the GET was even less expected and thus more appropriate.

900k on /co/
May 19, 2007. A random Anonymous reply saying "GTFO FAG" in a thread attempting to score the GET for Squirrel Girl, one of /co/'s favorite characters. Widely considered a FailGET. 900001, however, was another near miss by Iron Man, and was hailed as the true GET. It was also OVER 900000!!!.
900000 GET on /co/
919k on /co/
May 22, 2007. 'Does Marvel know at all how much Sally Floyd is hated?
Like, has someone stood up at one of those editor panels at the convention and yelled into the mic "THAT FUCKING WHORE NEEDS TO DIE!"?'
Upside-down 616 GET (the number of the Marvel universe). Sally Floyd is a dumb bitch reporter that told Captain America he's a bad superhero because he doesn't have a MySpace, or watch American Idol or NASCAR. She, along with Captain America's non-response to her bullshit, also represents the fact that Marvel writers have forgotten that Captain America was unfrozen decades ago, not yesterday, and thus is well aware that it's no longer the 1940s.
950k on /co/
May 28, 2007. The GET was gotten by a tripfag Amy Fairchild!ch31534. A tripfag telling Anonymous that she read more Alan Moore books after enjoying Promethea.

1 Million[edit]

April 07, 2005 @ 06:27. 1 million get on /b/ was an image of a sketch of Sae Sawanoguchi, from the anime Magic Users Club, in sexual bliss.
Seconds later, the post was deleted and mods stickied another post with the picture of a budgie in a jar, originally named 'Bonzai Budgie' but quickly dubbed 'Bottle Budgie'. The post number was also changed to be 1000000 with many users believing the original 1M GET was false in preference of this.

1000000 on /a/
September 16, 2006. 1M GET on /a/ was an image of Milhouse in a tuxedo, standing triumphant with the text "MILHOUSE GET". Widely considered the greatest get ever or the worst get ever, depending on if you were trolling or not.
The gigantic red "X" and word "NO" that was subsequently edited over the picture thumbnail has contributed to the widespread belief that the GET was fixed by the mods. The thread was stickied and remained at the top of /a/ for days, igniting a shitstorm of argument. It was mainly Haruhi fans, who know nothing about computers, who created conspiracy theories about the mods cheating them out of a GET by using a fake MySQL failure just before the GET happened (Haruhi got 1000001). Dozens of calls went out for the picture to be deleted as Milhouse was not only not a meme, but also off-topic; the mods ignored these calls, which all but assured it was a modGET.
MilhouseGET - 1 Million GET on /a/
1000000 on /co/
June 05, 2007. failGET. During the flood of /co/ by /a/ and several other boards just before the get, the actual 1M Get wound up as a deleted image (believed to be of Myron Reducto from the cartoon Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law) simply stating "Reducto Get" next to it. Later the members of /co/ decided they wanted to pretend they had a good get and created a new image. The image comprises of a newspaper with a picture of supervillain Hank Scorpio reading " Supervillain Seizes 1M GET", with the theme tune for Hank Scorpio (from the credits of the Simpsons episode Scorpio originates from) posted with it. This new GET has been called the RETCON GET, the term used for changing or adding information, used heavily in most comics.

June 01, 2009. HADOKITIC BLAST! A screenshot from Marvel vs. Capcom of Ryu and Cyclops shaking hands. /v/ and /co/ steal the GET from /b/'s spamming. Comments consisted mostly of rage and cheer from the native /ck/ as they were relieved that /b/ did not get the GET. Considered an epic GET since it was stolen from /b/ without /v/ or /co/ having to spampost. This may be the first GET where two boards successfully collaborated in order to steal it from /b/.

July 13, 2008. "Take it easy." GET featuring the original Yukkuri. Was stickied shortly after it was posted and stayed up for less than a day. Liked by many, and was said to become the new rule 1 of /jp/. Even the servers were taking it easy during the GET.

During a thread in which /co/ wrote their own bible, Nameless !2JF1umrU16 managed to achieve an overwhelming winGET with an unintentional typo and a cry for the thread to be stickied. Only he forgot to include his name after trolling /v/. He was later hailed Bearer of the Holy GET.

2M on /a/
February 11, 2007. Mariya from the anime Otome Wa Boku Ni Koishiteru, with a facial expression similar to Grinbitch's "Oh ho, why not whore ourselves?" picture. Considered an even more collossal failure than 1M, Moot himself personally intervened, handing down the judgment "SHIT SUCKS FAGGOT" and banning the Anonymous who posted it.
2M on /v/
December 17, 2006. Pipboy GET. An image of Pipboy, the mascot of the Fallout series. Considered a winget, especially since /b/ was heavily attempting to steal the get at the time. The image and the post were deleted after being autosaged.
2M on /co/
October 15, 2007. Onyx GET. Notorious poster Wyatt Creed, known for repeatedly posting pictures of girls from the cartoons Horseland and Trollz, posted a picture of the character Onyx from the cartoon Trollz with the "Onyx GET" caption. Shitstorm soon follow. [3]
2M on [s4s]
May 07, 2014. The 2 million GET was widely regarded as a failGET and a poor attempt at forcing a meme, this GET only said "italiano".
2.1M on /b/
Contained the text "Thanks b, I always change the background here to something cool on caturday." No image.
2222222 on /co/
November 13 2007. Contained the text "Oh, thats an important distinction." No image. Considered a failure, as Booster Poke came from the future half an hour before to declare that 2222222GET would have no image and be a failure.
2222222 on [s4s]
July 02, 2014. The repetition is, in its way, a mantra. A way for us all to collectively change our minds and individually modify our cultural frame of reference. This GET was met with mixed feelings due to internal board struggles. Viewed as many to be a winGET, but by others as a failGET.
2222222 s4s septs.png
2.4M on /b/
Contained an anonymous user replying to a gif of someone fucking a fleshlight with the text "I soooo want this now." Considered a failure.
2.5M on /a/
March 27, 2007. Photograph of a woman with a mouth full of Nilla Wafers cookies. As the get neared, posting increased to such a furious pace that the entire ten pages was wiped clean in under fifteen seconds, and the get itself survived less than five seconds on the board before it too was pushed off. Multiple sources providing screenshots confirmed the get, at which point /a/ erupted in furious protest. The get had usurped attempts by at least four different factions (Haruhi fans, Touhou fans, Jun Watarase fans and Death Note fans) to claim it. Most infuriated were the latter group, who had hoped to secure the get with an image of the famous "JUST AS PLANNED" scene from Death Note, the anime version of which had just aired earlier that day. (Some trolls cracked that this was in fact "JUST AS PLANNED" to deny them the get.) Most of the vitriol was directed at the mods, featuring unusually harsh language; (one /b/-type image somehow squeezing in among a flood of anime images, a MySQL error just as the get happened, etc.) and, even worse than Milhouse, the image was a photograph, not even drawn (it wasn't even an amusing image to begin with). Most users believed /a/ gets could not possibly get worse than 2M; as usual, the power of FailGET was tragically underestimated.[4]
2.6M on /b/
Posted in a thread that had a picture of black Jesus, with the text "JESUS SAVES 4CHAN!" The get itself was the first responce in the thread, simply "lets hope".
2.6M on /a/
April 03, 2007. A Yaranaika GET. Many Anonymous considered this as a WinGET since the many epic FailGETs in /a/, though there was some limited dissent, especially among those attempting to score the GET for Jun Watarase.[5] It was followed immediately by a post containing a pic of Slowpoke and text claiming it to be a Mod GET. It was to moments later with another Slowpoke pic and the text "Damnit".[6] Given that missing a GET by exactly one post is just as impossible to time as the actual GET, SlowpokeFailGET most likely really was the work of the mods.
2666666 on /tv/
"Can't Hardly Wait" GET. Picture of the movie poster for the film "Can't Hardly Wait" with the text "Can't Hardly Wait 2666666GET?"
2.7M on /a/
April 10, 2007. "SMALL BOSS GET": a screenshot of the Nanoha StrikerS character Reinforce II (known on /a/ as "Small Boss") with the subtitle "Ah, looks like something really bad is happening." Some Anonymous felt that the text was appropriate given /a/'s spate of FAILGETS, but others denounced this as a FAILGET as well.
2.8M on /a/
April 16, 2007. Chidori GET: A screenshot from Full Metal Panic of Kaname Chidori saying "Isn't that a kind of rape?". [7]

3M on /b/
October 16, 2005. "TIME PARADOX/What a lame GET/Surely you jest". Accompanied pic was Waha and Pedobear with an explanation of how they're seen in Japan and in America. The post had a file with a UNIX timestamp after the 3,000,001st, and the poster PixelHotness being friendly with the Mods, caused some users to believe it was faked.
3M on /a/
FILE DELETED, following a massive spate of MySQL connection failures, possibly caused by an anti-flood feature. Pushed off the board almost instantly. Text was the smiley "XD". Badly photoshopped "proofs" trying to claim the GET filled the board afterwards. Since the image was deleted, some users settled on a "blank" image from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni as a placeholder. 2999999 was about Lucky Star.
3M on /v/
"ArmpitGET". A picture of Reimu Hakurei from the Touhou games, arms raised over her head and baring her infamous armpits. Finally became 4chan's first TouhouGET, but lasted less than a minute before being bumped off in the rush of posting. Was not stickied. Some malcontents accused /a/ of stealing their get and have begun plotting to steal /a/'s 3MGET, unaware or ignorant that (1) Touhou is a video game series and (2) the mods and /b/ are already engaged in stealing /a/'s gets. Widely considered a FAILGET.
3000000 on /v/: ArmpitGET
3M on /co/
February 06, 2008. A failget. A reply to an attempted get involving Shego from Kim Possible that read "Close, but no GET".

3.4M on /a/
May 27, 2007. HaruhiGET. Considered an infinite/epic fail due to making a thread dedicated to the beloved characters Kamina from the anime Gurren-Lagann a failGET. [11]

4M on /a/
The text "hey does anyone know of any cool anime about pigs?". The picture, along with the pictures of almost every post on the board at the time were deleted. Due to the overwhelming amount of faggotry and spam going on during the night, 4M was bumped off in a matter of seconds.
4M on /v/
Half of a picture of the Pokemon Bidoof as someone attempting to create a larger image by posting parts of the image. However, the actual image contained within 4M was of improper size and proportion, causing people to claim SHIT SUX.

June 22, 2007. An image of Yotsuba looking excited, with the text "Is it get yet?". It was stickied in /a/. It was still considered a WINGET by most of /a/, who were happy to see it after the faggotry of the 4M GET.
Yotsuba is always welcome on /a/

July 06, 2007. A picture of Scorpio from the PS2 game "Devil Kings", during his "M'LORD" face, which is often used as a response to offensive or shocking OP images. Was taken by the Tripfag Adol Christin, though the archived thread displays mixed feelings about the get(About 1/4 win, 1/4 acceptable, 1/2 TRIPFAG GET IS FAILGET).

January 22, 2006. A text post containing only the word "eee". There was no image. Widely considered a failed GET. The clamour to get the 4.5 millionth post caused a lengthy MySQL failure.
4.5M on /v/
July 09, 2007. A shiny Charizard.
4.5M on /a/
July 17, 2007. A hybrid GET of Azumanga Daioh, Twelve Kingdoms, and Giovanni from Pokemon, with the text "GETs considered harmful". At first it was considered an IronyGET due to the irony of the message, but became a WinGET - because of the surprise image of Giovanni punching Chansey, Giovanni became an instant hit on /a/, spawning off dozens of Giovannipunch shoops and his rising GAR status.
4.6M on /b/
"I'll win this stupid GET-contest with perfect timing. You'll see" [14]
on /a/
July 17, 2007. "USELESS" Considered a FAILGET.
4.7M on /a/
July 21, 2007. "And no that is not the pasta of the copy where I exactly type this entirely all. Have sexual intercourse." Posted in a thread full of copypasta. Was considered a failGET due to Giovanni GET being one post off, although others considered it a WinGET due to how ridiculous the statement was. [15]
4.8M on /a/
July 26, 2007. "GET, GET, GETTER GET!" The raging war between /m/ and /a/ continues with this stickied GET featuring Getterbot (oh, the irony). 4799999 was a picture of Konata from Lucky ☆ Star doing the victory sign with the text "Ha!" that was also stickied; user was banned.
4.9M on /a/
July 30, 2007. KITTEH get. From the swimming anime Umisho. Lucky Star failed to get a get again at 4899999.

A picture of a cat taken at an angle that made the cat seem larger than it was. The post read, "Needs more towercat." -02/18/06(Sat)15:09
5M on /v/
A deleted image with the text: "GET, GET, GETTER, GET!" deleted almost instantly due to other people trying to get the GET. Definite FailGET.
5M on /a/
A deleted image with the text: "Lucky Star GET!" [16]
5.3M on /a/
Ghost in the Shell get. Closely followed by Asuka being an hero at 5300001. Both sticked.

"milf is film backwards". HUGE FAILURE FACEPALM.JPG/GIF/PNG/BMP/ETC. Lucky ☆ Star missed at 5400001 yet again.
A picture of a duck about to get cut in two with scissors, captioned "LOVE IS OVER". The post read, "Your mother is a whore /b/".

A .gif of Osaka from Azumanga Daioh. No text.
5555555 on /v/
Monty Python get. Image of John Cleese at a desk (the infamous "...and now for something completely different" image). Widely considered a WINGET, but then modfags banned the user, possibly due to the fact that the get was not /v/ related.
5555555 on /a/
Cirno get. Was stickied, with modfags and Touhoufags stating it was a WinGET and everyone else telling them to gb2/v/.
5.6M on /a/
"NUTBLADDER = EXPLODE" GET = GOT. GetGods love Hidamari Sketch, and so does /a/.
5.7M on /a/
"conti get". Approved by Anonymous but considered a Semi-FailGET. Firstly, newfags assumed it was a Gurren-Lagann GET because of the wallpaper's style (although GAINAX produced both FLCL and said show); /m/orons also tried to say they stole the get, despite Canti being a ROBOT that isn't necessarily placed in the MECHA category. Secondly, the OP was using Windows Vista along with his real name "Phil" present on his desktop (thankfully "Phil" didn't use a tripcode). Thirdly, Canti's name wasn't even spelled correctly.
5.8M on /v/
Lucky Star get featuring Konata in a cardboard box labeled Gundam. Particularly infuriating to /v/ as "Lucky Star will never be a get on /v/" was a sticky for quite some time during the 5M get.
5.8M on /a/
"DESU THIS" get. With all the RM fags moved to desuchan.net, there is a very lacking amount of support for the series anymore. And thus, including that the picture features male cosplayers and an airsoft, this is labeled as a FailGET but instantly turned to win once the USER WAS BANNED.
5.9M on /a/
A successful Lucky Star GET which was not stickied. See /a/'s 4.8M.

6 Million[edit]

A picture of Senator Bill Frist holding up a card. The post read, "In after 6MGET." MySQL Connection Failures caused /b/ to hang at post 5997855 (a kid in a small hotrod flanked by two men with the thought bubble "Carborator?" and accompanied text: "Hey kid I'm a carborator.") The 6MGET was posted shortly after. -03/23/06(Thu)14:02:29 [17] It was denounced by some as a FAILGET, but ultimately was accepted by most due to the nearly infinite potential for photoshopping.
6M on /v/
PizzaCatGET. A screencap from a Samurai Pizza Cats video game stating "We have won!!" with no text. Status is currently debated. Some claim that /a/ stole the GET, but although /a/ was indeed heavily attempting to steal the GET (5999999 ended up being Jun Watarase), the image came from a video game, and most of /a/ admitted defeat, making a ste/a/lGET unlikely. Considered a WinGET.
6M on /a/
A deleted image with the subject: "Yoko GET". Quickly purged due to a rush of faggots trying to get a GET.
6M on /co/
A post consisting of "*holds up spork*" in reply to an attemtped GET involving a bear with a machine gun surfing on a shark.
6.1M on /a/
September 16th, "SPAM MORE FAGGOTS" Tripfag (Penis Engine Mechanic !PenisjjSpE) get with a picture of some random Japanese voice actress. Decreed a failGET in addition to stealing what potentially was suppose to be a GAR Kittan GET (Gurren-Lagann 25 just aired that day along with a rush of SHITSTORM on /a/) along with a mixture of Lucky Star GETS and robot-lover (Idolm@ster Xenoglossia) GETS. However, the irony is quite delicious. (Kittan was "redeemed" later in the day by 6111111 "GET": a topic consisting of a screenshot from the infamous episode 4 depicting Kittan and his 3 sisters waving their rear-ends around, accompanied by text linking to the post itself. This was stickied for around an hour and declared semi-win, but not an actual GET.)
March 29, 2006 @ 12:39:19. Its 25 posts away. Replying to someone asking what 6.2M GET was.

Septemeber 20, 2006. N64GET. Image of a Nintendo 64 console. Given that the image is fitting for the post number, it is widely considered a WinGET regardless.[18]
A picture of a naked, sleeping pokemon. Mistaken to be furry. There was no text included. 4/7/06 (Friday) [19]
April 09, 2006. A picture of Faye Valentine From Cowboy Bebop, with the text "iv got 90 minutes left till ut2k4 is done, what should i do? pic unrelated." [20]

Palindrome Jun GET! Second Jun get within a week. [21]
A Thai ladyboy named Love with the text "Remember Remember The cocks of November" (a reference to the poem about Guy Fawkes which was very relevant for the time). Dividely considered a failed GET, while others chuckle at it being the perfect GET. It was hated perhaps due to its usurping of the GET from the Desu~ and Gaston camps. This was followed by the board crashing. Can be seen at [22]
6666666 on /v/
New Dracula GET. Image of Graham Jones from Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow with the text "NEW DRACULA GET". While most newfags saw this as a winGET due to the relevance of the image and the number, the rest of /v/ declared it a fucking failGET due to the fact that Graham was NOT the new Dracula in Aria of Sorrow, and that he had previously been known to /v/ as an extremely horrible Ultros clone (even by /v/ standards) that laughs at his own jokes and tries to explains his own punchlines.
6666666 on /a/
Against all odds, Upside-down Cirno (9 -> 6) was the get (which was accurately predicted right before the get). Thread got purged in a mere 2 minutes. Also see 5555555 on /a/. [23]
6.7M on /a/
FailGET consisting of a broken Lucky Star thumbanil of Tsukasa revealed to be a picture of Neuro. Amusingly it worked with the posted text.

Image of a shota and a loli with no text. Deleted after a few minutes. April 20, 2006.

7 Million[edit]

Initially "FILE DELETED", as a result of a spam script that quicky uploads and deletes pictures. Coda retrieved the info of the image from the database and its checksum was md5: d24e105e330f276be0e7bd56f95d4fdf, which corresponds to a picture of Chopper Dave from Sea Lab with the photoshopped text "UH OOOOOOOH" -04/20/06(Thu)16:17:38 [25]

7.1M on /v/
A picture of a cat, sitting in front of a table, pictured with an empty plate and a fork. The image read "Keep your fork: There's pie". The thread was deleted, but pictures of the thread were captured. Thursday, 5/4/06. [27]
7.5M on /v/
XBOX Kid GET. An MS Paint image of the XBox kid. Mostly considered a WinGET, the thread very quickly turned into an XBox Kid shoop thread.
7.5M on /a/
Akira from Lucky Star in a kimono singing. No text. Thread quickly followed SHITSTORM and PROMOTIONS, ending with a PROMOTIONS picture.
7.6M on /a/
FREDDY GET. Picture of Freddy from Cromartie High School with no text. Instantly declared a WinGET.
A portrait of Captain Picard from Star Trek with the caption "CP", in response to a child porn post. Had a minor following for a while; "CPGET NEVER FORGET".
7777777 on /v/
METALSEADRAMON GET. An image of Metalseadramon from a Digimon anime. Despite Digimon technically being a video game, users representing /a/ claimed credit for the GET, resulting in initial hatred for the GET and further fueling the fires of the hatred between /a/ and /v/. However, the GET was later turned to win when an anonymous user inverted the image and revealed that Metalseadramon's facial expression and position bore an eerie resemblance to the Xbox Kid.
7777777 on /a/
"Lucky-Star-Sucks GET!" Also commented on SaiMoe winner and what to do if it was a get. However, this post was not significant; what was was 7777775, which had Yami from Yu-Gi-Oh on his posting spree of hitting 5's extremely often. Was declared King of GETS soon after.

8 Million[edit]

Was thought to be an autopost by moderators because it was instantly stickied. It was later revealed to be simply stickied automatically.

True MOE GET with a picture of Tsukasa from Lucky Star. Very mixed reaction. Most pictures posted were surprisingly on-topic, mostly consisting of Lucky Star and Hayate the Combat Butler. Followed by the usual filler of shitstorm and LS/GLfags after the sticky and picture limit maxed.
9M on /co/
WOLOLO GET. An image of a /v/ meme that read "Shit was so WOLOLO"
June 16, 2006. A picture of a naked catgirl, leaning forwards and resting her breasts on her forearms, with the caption "BIG FAT CAT TATS". Accompanying text reads "Is it Caturday yet?" Since this was posted on a Friday, an argument immediately ensued about whether or not the GET was furry (and therefore a failget) or not (in which case it would be a successful GET). [33]
9.1M on /a/
True MOE GET with a picture of Tsukasa from Lucky Star. Happened in an epic sticky. Mods quickly deleted it to keep the thread from degeneration.

July 05, 2006. A watercolour Mudkip, with "9.9 get" scrawled on it in thin, black letters. No text. Rumored to be fixed by mods. A mod did not do it. [34]
July 07, 2006. Honorable mention - picture of the apparently "happy" word "Huggbees" from the cartoon Freakazoid. Text was "9987000 GET?" - guessing your post number had been done before, but to be this accurate for a minor GET was well received by /b/.
July 07, 2006. A 17x11 picture of the Japanese flag. For those with firefox 1.5, the thumbnail image that is shown in the address bar of the image stretches and the red dot of the Japanese flag is transformed into a stick man similar to that of of a male restroom sign. Manyviewed this get as a fail get, but better than the 10M get, but most people failed to see the hidden image. No text. [35]
Late in the evening, the linked image was changed by mods to a Canadian flag with Keneda in the bottom right corner, but the thumbnail of the Japanese flag remained.

10 Million[edit]

July 07, 2006. Hazuki riding a merry-go-round horse in a bikini. Text reads "hazukiget". A recent edit to this section suggests that someone named "Shii" posted the GET. However, since no name was included in the post, not even in the email field, the poster will forever be thought of as Anonymous. Currently considered the biggest FAILget of them all. ~07/07/06(Fri)18:41:05 [36] (Downloaded from [37], based on the filename)

July 10, 2006. A gif of the football player Zinedine Zidane headbutting an Italian player in the final of the Football WC 2006 in Germany. Considered as one of the best GETs, simply because of the awesomeness of Zidane's headbutt. Includes text "THIS IS 10M100K GET .OH YES IT IS." [38]
July 10, 2006. (Binary get) Text "give her our adress, /b/" without a picture. A failget. [39]

The GET was not stickied, instead the mods chose to sticky a thread full of baby-furs comics.

July 30, 2006. Five black rangers with sunglasses and Afros with Happy Negro in the place of Zordon. Logo said Pools Closed Nigra Rangers. The text accompanying the picture said "GET'S CLOSED." Generally considered a winget (possibly one of the best). [42]

Apparently a page of "DESU DESU DESU DESU" written over and over again. [44]
A picture of NIGRA CELL edited to say "ZA WARUDO", with the text "ZA WARUDO. Give me my internet." The OP linked to another post (allegedly made by him,) predicting that "ONCE AGAIN, THE GET IS FAIL, THANKS TO ANONYMOUS." Rapidly saged. [45]
August 13, 2006. Text reply, "You want rare and exotic?
Find hentai in which the girl involved is clearly enjoying the sex. As in, none of this "emotionless", blank-look-on-her-face "stay in one spot and don't do anything" shit." (To someone requesting lesbian breastfeeding) [46]
Text reply "Actually, yes. Everyone dies." Used in a topic about the movie Pulse, and how half the world population dies due to the computer virus/undead creatures. Became a mildly successful forced meme for a few minutes, much to the delight of the Anon who made the GET.

12 Million[edit]

No picture and thread was removed before 500 posts and opnly thirty minutes after it was posted. Text, "At seventy you are but a child, at eighty you are merely a youth, and at ninety if the ancestors invite you into heaven, ask them to wait until you are one hundred..........." General concensus is that this GET failed harder than 10MGet and is now considered the "poster child" of Failgets.

Cory in the House Nintendo DS cover. User was banned. Happened in a thread which opened with a screenshot from /v/ with Yami saying "If my post ends in "5", /v/ steals /a/'s 12M GET". The image might really have been something else which was put as "image deleted" and replaced with the Cory cover by a mod after the fact.
A response to a post of Porn from "The Iron Giant" with the text "GODDAMMIT /B/!" No image was attached.
August 31, 2006. A Warhammer 40k picture depicting the Horus Heresy edited to Meximoot and Anonymous. Most of /b/ saw this as one of the worst failgets ever, inspiring 7chan members to spam the topic full of propaganda telling /b/tards to leave 4chan.

Picture of a hamster with a carrot in it's mouth, with the image macro "i has a karot", the GET died however as a result of an individual spamming a phrase repeatedly that said: "FAILGET, MISFIRE, AIDS, ETC" along with a website spam.

15 Million[edit]

October 28, 2006. Although a sticky was created, few people actually witnessed the 15M get post. The 15M get was a picture of the Mooninites from ATHF with the text "SPACECATAZ" [49]
November 01, 2006. A picture of a Deku from The Legend of Zelda, with the eyes colored Red and Green,along with the text "deku get, ~deku".
November 03, 2006. Picture of man smoking a pipe, saying, "In Canada, AIDS comes in bags," with the text "AIDS AIDS AIDS". Although the GET was not a meme, it was still considered to be the first WinGet in a long time by most users. Similarly, some users said that it was a step towards redeeming the 15M FailGet.
November 05, 2006. In response to a thread of someone trying to get, the post had no picture and the text "no me." It was debated whether or not this was win or fail.
November 11, 2006. One thread in the inevitable flood of posts, with a picture from some manga and the text "lay doze hoez". Whether it was a win GET or a fail GET was argued upon in the thread.

In >>15827097, a Borat imagemacro saying "GREAT SUCCESS!" was posted, predicting that ">>15829229 WILL BRING UPON THE END OF THE WORLD AND /b/ THE GREATEST GET EVER!!!!!!!!!" /b/ was temporarily excited about this new arbitrary GET and speculated what it might be. Soon enough, >>15829229 turned out to be a post simply saying "not enough nerve endings," in response to a girl (?) who said "I'd trade my vagina for a PENIS anyday" in a thread about gender swapping. /b/ was ambivalent about whether this constituted a satisfactory GET.

November 20, 2006. 16M was an image of Habbo Hotel. In the image two Habbo men in blue banana hammocks were circled and beside the screenshot, an image two men from a gay porn site wearing the same outfits. Unanimously considered a horrible get, it was briefly stickied but deleted within 10 minutes. Trolls tried to claim that 16M was a furry get, posting this image as "proof", but it was later revealed to be an obvious shop.

June 08, 2008. a picture of the cover for game Dead Rising for Xbox 360 with the title replaced with "PS3 LAUNCH" posted by Edmund Burke.
November 23, 2006. Ultimately called a win due to the suckage of the previous gets. The picture was thought to be called "Daddies Girl" with "16161616 GET" written next to it.
December 06, 2006. This get was small in notice as it happened during "low" traffic hours, but it was a get nonetheless. It was a non-image post with the saying "Fuck You Kangajew" in response to a religious mockery thread. This was concidered a FailGet by all who witnessed it. It should also be noted that some are trying to force this phrase as a meme, though it is failing and has faded out of existence. What the hell? The link is nothing like that. Who fucking wrote this?
December 07, 2006. A reply to a thread started for the sake of flooding for the GET, it had no image and was a nonsensical word "theth". Although it was considered to be an epic fail, afterwards it had multiple threads with theth macros and posts.
19.6M: theth
December 08, 2006. An attempt to claim 17MGet by a furfag who posted furry buttsex. This was concidered by some to be a WinGet due to the nature of 17MGet; though by the end the confusion following 17MGet, it was aptly named a FailGet similar to past FurGets.

December 08, 2006. 'HUEG GET', an image of a huge vixen.[50] The image was deleted within seconds after it was posted, due to the massive amount of traffic the server was experiencing at the time[51], and many have thus shopped fakes.

December 22, 2006. Perhaps one of the most successful trolls in 4chan history, depicting a picture of Cockmongler. The thread was saged and many people refused to post in it due to the fact that it would only make the troll more successful. Epic win. [53]
December 24, 2006. /b/ froze for a few minutes while everyone frantically tried to post the get. Ultimately, when /b/ loaded again, it was an image of Naruto with the text "KAGE BUSHIN NO JITSU GET." Classified instantly as a failget.
December 26, 2006. A text reply to a "Post from your wii" thread, it read simply "Non-wii post". Considered a small winget because it happened in the middle of the HUEG nyoro~n spam, and everybody was expecting the get to be wasted to that raid. Pissing in an ocean of piss, etc.

August 21, 2008. An post without an image saying "FUCKING JAPAN TIME" during a japantime revival thread. Was followed with many shouts of SAKURAIIIIIIIIIIIIIII, with many believing that Sakurai had come to troll /v/ one last time, stealing their get. Generally considered to be a failget.
19M on /a/
February 18, 2009. GARUTO get. Due to recent Naruto chapters of him fighting village-destroyer Pain, a flash of Gaiafag mobs invaded /a/ with this forced meme featuring Naruto wearing Kamina's glasses, thus the deeper shithole /a/ already is. 19000001 was also GARUTO get. True get was Imoutits at 18999999.
January 13, 2007. One of many threads posted in the great flood; the picture was of an owl fancifly carved out of a watermelon with the macro "HOLY SHIT - THIS IS AWESOME", accompanied by text "random get!". Considered to be not a great GET, but not a bad one either. Also noted that 18999999 and 18999998 were the Cockmongler and :3chan respectively.
January 30, 2007. Second DESU GET was got in a Suiseiseki flood. Picture was of Suiseiseki (obviously) and text was a flood of "desu" (obviously). Significant because it's the first repeat GET in 4chan history, not counting minor GETs. [56]
February 02, 2007. A picture of some CounterStrike terrorists, with the text "These men are mooninites." This was a test on the terrorist->mooninite wordfilter, and was a win (though the post that pointed out that it was a special number won more). The relevance of the number is that it is indeed an upside down reverse palindrome GET.

20 Million[edit]

February 03, 2007. Naked Asian chick. Fail get. Upon taking a closer look, 20000001 was the same exact picture as 20M get, except it had the text "THAT FUCKING CAT!" next to it. Due to the large amount of MySQL errors around the time, some believe 20000001 was actually the real 20M get. Not even stickied. Upon being clicked, the image was really an image of Naruto. The post's full image when clicked.
20milget.JPG 20mget.jpg
20M on /v/
Get out /a/. OH WOW. Oh, and /a/ was too busy creaming in orgasm due to Code Geass R2 live from Japan that just ended. (Technically that Pokemon image has some relevance to /a/...)
February 22, 2007. Picture of Natalie Portman, with the text Portman GET. The fail of the get is masked by the fact that seconds after it was posted, it was sage'd off of 4chan due to the massive spam.
February 25, 2007. Text in a grouphug.us style topic, simply stating "I think I might like the cock." Debated as to whether or not it was a win or fail.
March 04, 2007. In a thread which was trying to get 21.6M get but ended up getting the 21599950th post. But on the 3rd post in the thread, someone replied and that which just so happened to be 21.6M GET. There were debates on whether this was a fail get, but the majority of the thread were saying it was a Win GET, most likely because of the irony. [57]
About March 11, 2007 at 05:50:00. One screenshot has it as "THIS THREAD DELIVERS" but it might be a shop.
March 14, 2007 at 18:42:18. It featured a fat woman with the accompanying post "FATGET". OP was banned soon after, and "FATGET" was wordfiltered to "I AM A HUGE FAGGOT. PLEASE RAPE MY FACE." in large bold font with the <blink> tag. Generally accepted as lesser win, at the least.
March 22, 2007 at 00:18:00. Although not intended to be a GET post, it happened to be.
March 24, 2007 at around 2PM GMT. OP posted a picture of what can only be assumed was himself, and the post made directly after that were the words "WELL TEN". While this is still a 'meme-in-progress' most /b/tards know that the perpetuation of such faggy memes will cause insta-death. Considered epic fail.
March 26, 2007 at 14:07:18. Morons think this is a modGET due to the numerous MySQL connection failures occurring directly before the GET as well as screenshots of what appears to be a sticky without a picture, because they are morons and don't understand the internet. Also, Pokemon GET. An hour or 2 after, the OP of the GET was banned, due to the fact that moot and the admins are trying to return /b/ back to its former glory.
GET with Flashing Background at the time. ModGETProof1.jpg ModGETProof2.png
Vincent Van GET.
23333333 GET
Brolly is not a meme. The get was said to be maximum
April 01, 2007 at 19:48:43. Text: "Hey it's Domini-chan." Domini-chan is a camwhore.
23456789 GET
April 06, 2007 at 06:14:11. "MEOW GET" accompanied by picture of kitten.
23.8M GET
April 08, 2007 at 12:07:09. "party hard get!" accompanied by dancing fag. User was later banned for this GET.
It looks like a thumbnail error occurred, and the thread is instantly stickied. modGET? The aftermath of 24M GET
"Epic Fail get," a picture of Epic Fail Guy with the text "I REALLY WILL." Due to it being epic fail guy, this was automatically considered a fail get. Wasn't even stickied. Ironically, an attempt at 24M GET which ended up being 24000001 was an Epic Fail Get.
April 12, 2007 @ 23:43:59. murk loar Dubbed as a WIN and GET!! in first few replies, but ultimately seen as a failget.
24400000 GET on /b/: murk loar

25 Million[edit]

"Dearest /b/, if 25m GET is fail, ill become an hero." Hours afterward, /a/ came along and made quite a combo out of it (see screenshot) [58] [59]
Instantly a failget. Picture supplied (Prof.jpeg) was a bearded Jesus lookalike holding a cat, with the text "jesus,lol get".
25252525 GET
Blurry pic of a camwhore. Went unnoticed and was almost immediately hidden by other posts.
25.9M Camwhore GET
26000000, 26000001
May 01, 2007. "get" 26M was considered a failGET.
26000001 was considered the true GET. It was an image of Slowpoke with text: "Hi guys, am I late for 25M GET?" It was an enjoyable because Slowpoke was not only late for not only late for 25M but one post late for 26M.
get GET 26M 26000001, the "true" 26M GET.
A picture of a toy phone with the text:
1. Post your telephonenumbers.
2. Call someone.
3. ???
26666666 on /g/
August 5, 2012. "windows 7 master race" A picture of Christian Bale, as Patrick Bateman from American Psycho, being used as the Doubles Guy, with associated text. The thread was stickied, and the board's title was changed to "INSTALL WINDOWS 7" with a smaller subtext "RIGHT NOW". The /g/ userbase enjoyed the GET and the stickied thread was a hit.
26666666 GET on /g/ The front page of 4chan's /g/ during 26666666 GET
DIABEETUS GET. An image macro of a cat resembling Wilford Brimley and containing the word "Diabeetus".
Crymoar GET. Posts in /a/ claimed credit for this GET, resulting in a wave of /b/tards spamflooding /a/ with scat pr0n and bukakke pics. Most of which /a/ secretly enjoyed, so the internal raid was fail. It is unlikely that 28M was /a/'s doing, as /a/ at the time was busy spamflooding itself with Lucky Star threads and would likely have chosen same for /b/'s consumption.
She walked the plank. Response to a "Jolly Roger-chan" thread.
Cum in your father, eat your mother, slap your sister with your hand. Responce to a "Where should I cum?" thread. It is considered a winGET.
28.5M GET 28.5M Thread
You were in fucking 3rd grade. I stopped reading there, you're obviously a stupid moron. Response in a relationship thread, full of emo faggotry and fail.
28.8M GET
wouldn't it be penes? Response to a thread about women with penises.
Jackson 5 GET, widely thought to be mod/m00t faggotry. There was MySQL errors right before the 29M GET, so pics were not accessible to lurkers.
POST SOMETHING EPIC FOR GET. Was considered a failGET by many at first, but eventually most came to accept it as a WINGET.
Barker GET. An image of Bob Barker accompanied by the text >>29999999 Barker GET. Given the date (Bob Barker retired that day after fifty years on television) and the accuracy (predicting itself as >>299999999) widely considered a WinGET and the true 30M GET by those who consider the Power Puff 30M a FailGET.

30 Million[edit]

June 16, 2007. A fairly controversial GET of the anime versions of the Power Puff Girls surrounded by Cartoon Network American characters with the Anonymous text, "Shit. Getting closer". There were suspicions of a joint effort by the denizens of /a/ and /co/, but while some of those boards claim credit the sources are mainly unfounded, making a /co/oper/a/tion unlikely.
June 18, 2007. A response to a "Would you hit it?" thread. Not that exciting.
June 19, 2007. A response in a thread about Velociraptors eating children. Was an image of a hedgehog on a couch making an angry-looking face. Accompanied text was "Fucking Hedgehog GET". Considered a WINGET by all that saw it.
June 24, 2007. "As my last act of loving kindness before consigning her still twitching body to the deep". A reply in a "would you give oral to a 14 year old?" thread.
June 25, 2007 The classic copypasta picture of a dude with a Bowler, standing infront of a house that is on fire with his right thumb up, and the house has 4chan written above it. At the bottom it says "AND NOTHING OF VALUE WAS LOST!" Considered a FailGET.
31M 31M: It took 9 uneventful days to get from 30mil to 31mil, the fastest at the time for /b/
July 5, 2007. A response to a thread trying to get the GET; no picture, just the text "[Razor] GET!".
July 15, 2007. SharkGET.
July 18, 2007. HaruhiGet. This get appeared on /b/ and not on /a/ which was a suprise for most /b/tards. Very few thought that this win, the rest saying it was a weeaboo get. The user who posted the get was later banned for it, and there was much rejoicing.[60]
July 19, 2007. Response to copypasta of a man finding a 4chan folder on his son's computer. Mixed reaction. [61]
July 25, 2007. Image of the Statue of Liberty kissing a statue of blind justice. Was posted by a secure tripfag. Considered a failGET by most, though some it was a decent GET. Was deleted by the OP while in the process of being archived.

35 Million[edit]

August 4, 2007. Image of Abyssic Hate's (Australian Black Metal) album art, Suicidal Emotions. Instantly regarded as a failGET.
August 4, 2007. LogGET. Image of a boy holding up a log from an old Ren & Stimpy cartoon. Regarded as a far superior GET to 35MGET. [62]
August 8, 2007. DuckrollGET. The Duckroll picture, no text. No suspicion of a mod's work and therefore regarded as a winget. [63]
August 9, 2007. CuntGET. Image of a close-up of a vagina with a lolipop inside with the text "HEY /B/, YOU LIKE LOLIPOPS?!" Although the text implies that the image may be CP, the image was not deleted due to it being impossible to tell. Mixed reaction, with about 1/3 of /b/tards claiming WinGET, 1/3 claiming FailGET, and 1/3 claiming "35600000 is NOT A GET you fucking newfags!" [64]
August 12, 2007. DraeneiGET. Fanart of a topless female draenei (a race of World of Warcraft) with the text "am i a meme yet?". Regarded as an even bigger FailGET than 35M. As usual, some /b/tards called ModGET (a practice that is noticeably getting tiresome, with one poster spamming "MODGET BECAUSE I DIDN'T GET IT!" in retaliation).
August 17, 2007. FaithGET. A picture of Faith, the bipedal dog, with the text "36500000GET." As is the norm with GETs these days, it was first considered a winGET, then a failGET, and then just a fucking argument. However, there is also an argument if the 100k/500k GETs are even considered GETs anymore.
August 21, 2007 Tuesday at 08:25:36. An obvious newfag and/or gaiafag trying to be epic with a GET. But he failed even worse than EFG by putting "36900000 get?" Questioning his attempt and courage at trying to make a GET. He also failed again when he posted an object used by virgins.
August 22, 2007. A picture of Slowpoke with the text "OH THE IRONY". It was instantly considered a failGET by everyone except the usual newfags that think everything is "EPIC." Interestingly, it is the second time that Slowpoke became a GET, and although the last time Slowpoke was a WinGET, most consider this a FailGET due to the fact that Slowpoke was actually on time for once.
August 26, 2007. Just the letter "u" as part of a reply for "sux" in 3 separate posts to a looking up picture of a guy wearing only a skirt and having his cock dangling. Instantly a failGET and further emphasizes the argument that the 500k posts should no longer be considered GETs when /b/'s post rate is taken into consideration.
August 31, 2007 @ 12:37 EST. Pretentious-Faggotry-GET. It contains a bizarre image of a large silhouetted citadel in a red background accompanied by a huge wall of text that made almost no sense. Such a horrible GET that calling it a FailGET would be an insult to FailGETs. [65]
September 9, 2007. PenisGET. A trio of images of two girls playing basketball at a distance, with a penis in the foreground, accompanied by the text I LIEK TO WATCH! GET. Mostly considered a WinGET. [66]
September 9, 2007 @ 22:35 EST. A picture of a BOX FULL OF AIDS with the caption "I BELIEVE THIS IS YOURS". /b/ doesn't realize that modgets don't actually exist because /b/ is full of a bunch of children that don't know anything about 4chan. Almost all of the old school 4channers have left 4chan because of this. Either way, it cannot be considered a FailGET due to the fact that it is strangely appropriate for the current state of /b/. [67]
September 12, 2007. libidoGET: A picture of Kurt Cobain, smiling, with the text "A LIBIDO".
September 18, 2007. "LOST: THE GAME" image accompanied by the text "39888888888888 get". Mostly considered win. As a matter of fact, this also broke 4chan and all of servers had to be fixed immediately after the rush of /b/tards trying to get this non-get. /b/ really lost the game on this one. By the way, you just lost the game.
September 19, 2007. The letter "g", a reply to a thread trying to get the get. Deemed a failGET by most. [68]

40 Million[edit]

September 20, 2007. High school picture of some homosexual, with the text "hey /b/, Do I look cute?" A cataclysmic failGET; the failure of this get was so intense it could be seen from the past. [69] Although it was stickied, it was subsequently deleted in less than an hour.
September 23, 2007. EFG's feet, which was the third part of an EFG combo. This is coinsidered a triple-failGET, because 1. it's EFG, 2. it's a combo, and 3. 3-piece combos don't count as real combos and are rightfully considered fails. What made this GET humorous, however, was this. The objective stated by the OP was a "3-hit fortune combo". This, effectively, was what EFG got.
September 29, 2007. BeefGET. Image of Captain Beefheart with a fortune, but no other text. Yet another failGET in a long line of failGETs. Doesn't even deserve funny or mocking text here. [70]
October 2, 2007. Dragon Porn. Image of two dragons fucking. Hardly any attention drawn.
October 7, 2007. A picture of a white mouse, fortune "Very Bad Luck", text "The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything". The true 42m GET.
October 7, 2007. Pizza GET. A picture of a pizza burned to a black, charcoal-like crisp. Extremely copious amounts of fail. [71]
October 16, 2007. DSFARGET. A picture of the meme DSFARGEG.
October 26, 2007. WalrusGET: An imageless post containing the text "huge fucking walrus".
October 31, 2007. CockphoneGet. A responce to a thread which said "looking for the pic of the asian chick with the dick on her ear saying HERROO!?!". The responce said "amidoinitrite". The answer was no, because the picture posted was of a non asian chick holding a double ended vibrating phalis to her ear and mouth making a "ch" face. Debatable winGET.

December 10, 2007. Ron PaulGET. A response to an EFG thread where EFG was trying to get the GET. No image. Most deem it a failGET but still in consideration, as it's in an EFG thread but it's mother fucking Ron Paul.
48M failure: Epic Fail Campaign
December 18, 2007. KIM FUCKING DEAL response to a thread about female musicians that don't suck ass.

50 Million[edit]

Emo GET. A picture of some bosnian whining about his LJ getting hacked blah blah blah. Only received 13 replies before it was either deleted or ignored. The fail of this GET is so unimaginable that science has not found a way to properly measure it.[72]
hij/a/cked GET. A picture of Kira from Death Note in a thread which proclaimed "The 50555555get will be fail." Originally called a failGET, but upgraded to a semi-decent get after the newfags settled down. The thread also marked the return of Yami, who got 50557755, a collection of five fives. A win in the eyes of most of /a/, especially compared to the fail of their recent 8888888 GET. /b/ was not amused.
A box of rogaine that had WHAT? written over it. FailGET properly declared.

55 Million[edit]

An EFG Motivator with EFG standing outside the box, saying "What goes in the box? I don't get it." Text was "THAT'S WRITE MOTHERFUCKERS, IM GONNA GET IT! 57M GET!" This is largely considered WINGET.

60 Million[edit]

Text "gets are for fags".
68888888: gets are for fags

80 Million[edit]

An epic GET which contained text and an image.
80M: epic win
Javascript spam code; considered the worst GET ever until 100M occured.

100 Million[edit]

100M on /b/
FURRY GET, obviously considered an FAILGET; /b/'s header was later changed to express this.
100M: propably a epic fail GET
123456789 on /b/
March 13, 2009. 123456789 post (in /b/) said: "get?". Many threads came up saying it was a fail, and a couple minutes after the get, the thread was 404'd.
123456789: get?

200 Million[edit]

200000000 on /b/
February 21, 2010, 15:19:20 EST. Official art of Ninetales with the text "IT WILL BE MINE! BELONG TO NINETAILS GET". About 650 posts before the get, posts could no longer be made on /b/. Shortly after, the main page went down. A few minutes later, posts could be made again, but the last three digits on each post were replaced with XXX.
200000000 on /v/
July 15, 2013, 21:00:30 EDT. A post reading "Also why does everyone crash land trying to get to Earth? Seriously." in a Pikmin 3 thread. The GET was widely considered to be /v/'s worst GET.

300 Million[edit]

300000000 on /b/
January 04, 2011, 08:57:13 UTC. FranceGET. "Get !" with a picture of France.

January 30 2012, 13:42:21 EST. "Hitler did nothing wrong". It is considered a somewhat funny GET.

400 Million[edit]

400000000 on /b/
May 16 2012 @ 00:41:24 EST. A simple post reading, "Niggers tongue my anus." Considered an utter failure that reflects the arrival of summer and the raging cancer. A picture of this GET is being posted in possibly every thread about epic threads you can imagine, further proving its cancerous nature.
400000000: Niggers tongue my anus.
410000000 on /b/
July 04, 2012 @ 01:22:46 EST. A saged post reading 'Homosexuality is a mental disease that can be cured. It is not something you're "born with".' Gained little to medium attention and is frequently posted in "Epic Thread" threads.
410000000: Homosexuality is a mental disease that can be cured. It is not something you're "born with".

November 28, 2012 @ 01:05:33 UTC. A picture of C3PO from Star Wars, accompanied by the word "hi". Considered a failGET. It's worthy of notice, though, that it was the first GET to be stickied and the first GET that happened as a new thread (not a thread reply) since the 300M GET.
440000000: hi
450000000 on /b/

454000000 on /b/
January 26, 2013. A greentext post reading ">2013, the year of our lord > not listening to Bun B". Considered to be a failGET.

470000000 on /b/

May 14, 2013 @ 3:33 UTC. A simple post "I love Ebony". A massive ebony shitstorm erupted, as all of the people who loved this awkwardly named porn genre celebrated with nude pictures of Seal.

A response to the GET was posted as an announcement on all boards: "I, for one, welcome our new Polish prostitute overlords."
510000000 on /b/
October 08, 2013 @ 22:34:30 EST. Easily the greatest GET ever achieved on /b/, this winGET is a completed slowpoke combo in the form of a slowpoke + onyx using the pokemon fusion game found online. Not only was the combo finished and uninterrupted, but the final piece of the combo achieved the 510000000 GET on /b/.
