Reminder that this actually happened

>>100073953
It's our fault they made the anime
>>
>>100075584
How shit did it sell?
>>
>>100076177
like two fractales I think
>>
Why not just "it's very popular abroad"?

Why "in a 2ch like imageboard" specifically?
>>
>>100076223
That's one and half fractales more than what we all were expecting.
>>
>>100076223
Can you convert that to C3-bus?
>>
>>100076275
It's just how Japs do things.
>>
>foreign 2ch
4ch is pretty damn barren, text boards just dont have any appeal in the west.
>>
>>100076275
>Why not just "it's very popular abroad"?
It implies it's very mainstream, on the other hand
>"in a 2ch like imageboard"
implies it's popular with the same kind of 2ch nerd you'd expect but in other countries
>>
>>100076635
Normal people don't know about 2chan at all.
>>
>>100073953
Oh well, it's not a big deal. If someone gets upset about this, that is pretty sad
>>
>>100076275
Because 2ch is very prevalent in Japan, even amongst adults?
>>
>>100076275
If you think about it, it's pretty much the same shit we do with Japs.

"2ch is monolitically enraged/praising/HURRRRR"

And the number of people believing it is astounding.
>>
>>100076275
Because the Japanese wouldn't understand if you just said "abroad." You have to connect it to something Japanese in order for them to understand the context.
>>
>>100076635
2chan is slow as fuck compared to 4chan. At least 4chan attracts people from all over the world.
>>
>>100076831
imagine if you didn't need to get a proxy.
>>
>>100076915
/b/ would just raid them again like they did in the past
>>
>>100076635
>text boards just dont have any appeal in the west.
I don't agree. The vast majority of posts here are just text. Adding images can enhance things, but they're not required. The reason why the text boards are barren is because they aren't prominently placed (Not on the front page and people often forget they exist. I wouldn't be surprised if some people don't know they exist.), the interface is shit, the default theme is shit, and there is zero moderation (and thus spam all over the place).

>>100076831
2chan doesn't want to attract people from all over the world, that's why they banned foreign IPs.
>>
>>100077030
no they banned foreign IPs because years ago /b/ decided to raid the living hell out of the place and that forced their hands.
>>
>>100077140
Pretty sure that's just reenforcing the fact that they don't want to attract people from outside Japan.
>>
>>100076963
I thought it was russian trolls that caused the ip ban.
>>
>>100076987
The majority of the posts are text, but the images are what attract people to a thread, sometimes even more than the thread's subject.
The reason people text boards don't have appeal in the west is because they're looked on as inferior to image boards.
>>Why should I go on the text-only board, when I can go on the image board? The text board is just text, the image board has text AND images, it's like two boards for the price of one!
>>
>>100079276
how come that does not work the same way in grorious nippon?
>>
OP, stop lying, 4chan has never made anything popular!
