Heyo /ho/, it's almost 2022. Who's still here? I mean, aside from that yuriposter guy from kissu. I don't think this site is active enough to attract regular members, and the guys from the past that said they loved slow boards have all disappeared as well. It's weird that I could probably count the amount of threads made this year with my fingers. I always check this site at least once a month, and it's become a habit to check it frequently (about once a day) during the cold seasons. I know a majority of the old crowd dipped when OG admin stepped down, but some of you guys are still here, right? Oh, but speaking of the old admin, what happened with him? I recall some people asking for his email. Has anyone contacted him and asked about newer projects in the works, or just about how his life has been going in general? Anyhow, back on topic. How's it going, gang?
Believe it or not, this Anon actually visits every day, but mostly doesn't post. Haven't been posting anywhere for a while in general, so it's nothing wrong with this site in particular. Guess I'm still hoping for the place to shoot back to life one day.
pretty sure I saw the OG admin somewhere on here a few days ago but I forgot
I have a trouble visiting sites that aren't in my starter page icon thing. I just forget they exist. But... I have fixed it! Before today I think the last time I visited was about two weeks ago. I try to post something every time I do.
similar to >>2 i still visit here nearly everyday, i just hardly posti suppose i should really post more in such low activity places like this, but i'm like this for all the boards i go to
Now I'm guilty as fuck, OPI'll be sure to post more often for 4taba's sake
I'm still here fag, stfu.
I stopped visiting around the time I started to use tor in earnest, which doesn't really make sense because this site doesn't block tor.
I just came to check up on this place after learning that posting on /qa/ is currently disabled and there are only two threads up.
>>10Honestly, locking /qa/ was a mercy, considering the alternative is letting it remain a battleground for soy duels.
>>11posting soyjaks should have been banned long ago imo
>>9How is tor these days? Last time I regularly used it was about a decade ago because I wanted to learn how to grow shrooms at my apartment. The forum I got a few guides from had a good community, so I stuck around, and it became my go to site along with a forum dedicated to the video game "bully". Both of those sites are gone now though. These days I'm mostly on tinychat, yt to check up on a few old friends and boards like this. Shit I think I just wrote a paragraph, sorry for the lifestory
>>13> Shit I think I just wrote a paragraph, sorry for the lifestoryElaboration doesn't offend here, no need to worry.
mom someone stole www.4taba.net again
why do i even still have that page
I'm in the same boat as >>2. I visit every time I go to the library to study.
Been hanging around this place for a while
I remember this website being much more active back in 2019, I blame the zoomers and their low attention span.
>>19It still seems fairly active from what I can tell.
>>19My attention span is fine I just haven't felt alive for the past few years.
>>1my gf illya is so cute
>>2Same here, but hoping it springs back to life won't help, we do need to post more especially on /ho/
>>1For me, Kissu kind of superseded 4taba. It wasn't on purpose; it just kind of happened. It's a shame, because I was on 4taba decently early on in its life, and was probably its most active user for a while.I like 4taba, but it feels like I'm pissing in the wind whenever I actually use it. If I have something on my mind, I'm going to be reluctant to post it here because I know not that many people are going to see it. So what ends up happening is that I save all the good stuff for more popular sites, and just use this place as a shitposting dump.Don't get me wrong, I _like_ smaller websites. But I also want to be heard, and when I post here it feels like I'm throwing my posts away.
>>25As an early user, what would you consider 4taba to be a spinoff of? I've always thought of this site as kind of mysterious. I mean its not everyday you see an imageboard that isn't some dime a dozen lynxchan site with only three boards and a .xyz domain to boot. The first I heard of it was on either /qa/ or /jp/
>>25Plenty of people will see it, few will respond. It might just be me but for some reason a lot of the internet seems somehow... deserted these days. I can't quite put my finger on it. I haven't really been on 4chan that much for the past year or so and even it seems somehow slower than how I remember it.
>>26I think of it as a general /a/jp/ site. It was built for and advertised to that crowd, but wasn't really in service of any particular community, if that makes sense. Like, Kissu was specifically created to act as a continuation of 4chan's /qa/ board, and most if not all of its initial users came from there. 4taba on the other hand is much more of its own thing.
I still talk to the old admin on occasion. He's still working on his new project.
>He's still working on his new projectHis what?
i only come to imageboards every 2 or 3 months. i'm still here, but you'd be better off finding me in the synirc textboard rooms
I migrated to kissu. I don't remember when that happened but I think it was around the time the old admin announced he was stepping down. I know kissu is not the same thing and I miss 4taba, but this site is too inactive.
first time visiting since 2019i had some fun looking at my old posts on /v/, but it also made me feel a bit sad somehow. i'll definitely start visiting again more often.
I've been here since the founding of the site. I'm not as online as I used to be in general, but I still visit every now and then. I really like this place still, and while I like small communities, a posts per day ratio of 1 tends to kill your enthusiasm.
I wonder what the original admin is up to these days. He said he was going to work on other projects or something like that, but it wasn't anything concrete. There's no way to find him as far as I'm aware, so I guess we'll never know.
I was here years ago, thought I'd come check it today.I wish there was something like this that was popular, other than 4chan.
Probably going to email him if he wants his site back, but odds are he doesn't use that email anymore. 2024 might see the site go into read-only on a Kissu subdomain in a Docker container. Not sure yet because people might start seeing a use for the site in the year or I could find an arrangement that doesn't put Kissu's infra at risk. Taba's currently on a dedicated VPS since I began upgrading Kissu's servers. I wouldn't want to put a read-write Taba on the same servers as Kissu's things because the CP spam poses a vector for a motivated actor to take out some of Kissu's services and negating the work that I plan to put into my own IB software designed to tackle the issues of the modern Internet.Taba won't change hands unless it's verifiable from the original owner or an old member of 4/qa/ who has a good level of cooperation with the current Kissu staff and enjoy's the Lisp syntax.- Kotatsu gets enough community contribution to the Github such that I can handle the CP spam properly.- Site goes into read-only as 4taba.kissu.moe- Somehow find the original owner (or the rare nice 4/qa/ person who already has imageboard commitments of their own)
I'm here. And new. Last week I got an nostalgic about the textnoard days and tried to find some still online. So many have disappeared but then I stumbled upon this one. So hello!
>>31Could you provide a link for that? I'm intrigued. What's the channel?
It's about half way through 2023 and I'm still here. I still go to as many textboards and imageboards as I can, at least until they die out. Some I don't check too frequently but I usually visit them at least once every other week.I hope this one doesn't go read only...but if it does, thanks for the fun times.
>>43And speaking of boards that died: kind.moe is no more. It was shut down a few days ago. I liked it because it was pretty calm an relaxing.
>>44I guess the official rally point this time is on wapchan.
>>43hi anon. i hope this site doesn't go read only as well. i still visit here so bumpi mostly just like the quietness of this board.
read the most recent news post, although, I suppose I have to pay for that now
Site might go down for a bit on the 26th of December. I don't like the costs of renewing with hostinger, so I'll move it somewhere I can get a deal
More spam, so much for fartflare huh
it's not a bot, it's some random guy who wants to make money
Kinda sad this place doesn't get more posts.
>>48On another note, thank you for deciding to keep it alive. It's slow here but I like how quiet it is. It reminds me of the very very very early days of textboard and imageboard culture circa 2002-2003 when the first English experiments began, although a lot slower.If you ever really do want to give up on it, well I know someone not schizo who...
Renewed the domain.so, we have automatic backups up, and I'm going to move it over to server I use for Kissu's stream platform and some other stuff. It's practically unused nowadays so ought to be fine.
What a Christmas gift! I'm so happy!
That was a painful reinstall
I turned down the cloudflare settings so we'll see what the automatic spam becomes
Some functionality might not be working, so let me know as it happens
I'm still here dammit
Damn this place is slower than 4-ch.
thanks for the post
I'm glad 4taba didn't get axxed anyway.
