From Bibliotheca Anonoma

The history of [s4s] has been moved to its own separate page; this will happen to every board soon. The same users having a bitch fit about "stickies we dont give a fuck about" keep adding melodramatic board drama that passes in a day to the article, and said this is the reason "/jp/ died", even though the thing about imageboards is, boards can always bounce back from AIDS if enough good threads are made to set an example. Either way, if you find something interesting and historic enough to add it to "the history of /jp/" article, go right ahead.

User: Groid raper 1488 was vandalizing this page in mid February, changing the "thousands of anons" line to "thousands of niggers".

The main reason why /pw/ had the name change was due to the Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund buying WWE.

As of May 2023, this has only been done for /mlp/ and [s4s], this really should be done for all of them, and we should endeavor even more forms of differentiation to make the history easier to navigate by topic. Rexma (talk) 07:51, 20 May 2023 (UTC)

I completely agree. Would making finding stuff way easier than just doing CTRL-F for the board you want to look up on the timeline. An infobox template for board info like the date of creation, bump limit, archive coverage etc. would be nice too. Maggot (talk) 01:54, 21 May 2023 (UTC)

history of shitposting with ads[edit]

the article currently implies ad shitposting on /vp/ started with ads in october 2019, but it actually started almost a decade earlier; there were several threads bitching about it, 22594427 is one example of several. this might've had a limited influence in the lasting consciousness because 4chan mods used to do their job and were deleting the threads pretty quickly – i.e. "you had to be there" – but the board was shit for the better part of a few days. still, it's newfag revionism to mark 2019 as the start of it
