7chan[edit]

...redirects here, yet there is no mention of it in the page.

Yeah, noticed that too. 7chan's one of the better ones - why isn't it mentioned? --StalinUpstaged (talk) 04:10, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

...define "better." 169.231.38.39 (talk) 21:13, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

There's a reason that it's called "Premium Content Network" —Preceding unsigned comment added by StalinUpstaged (talkcontribs) 07:19, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

I have just added 7chan to the wiki page and it needs work but I hope what I have provided with the help of google will work for now. Fix what is false and what does not fit in the description I will be making changes when I can.

I don't know why wikipedia staff keeps removing 7chan because it has a really interesting history mainly because it caused the first major 4chan migration. Signed ~Yusheec (talk) 21:04, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

If you can find WP:Reliable Sources surrounding 7chan, then go ahead and add it to the article. Alcherin (talk) 20:45, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

An interesting article from looks like a reliable source[edit]

http://blog.practicalethics.ox.ac.uk/2014/12/limiting-the-damage-from-cultures-in-collision/ It talks a lot about how discourse is affected by imageboards, I'm not going to make any specific suggestions, but I think it's worth a couple sentences of so. HalfHat 22:00, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Cite note 20[edit]

Needs to be removed, 8 chan doesn't allow content that breaks U.S. Law, child porn is extremely illegal and therefore isn't allowed, that citation is extremely biased against 8chan and isn't even accurate. by including it you've lowered the quality of this article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bumblebritches57 (talkcontribs) 12:22, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Imageboard. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Wizardchan[edit]

I had removed wizardchan from the list of imageboards because I didn't see any reason why it should be included, given what's currently listed alongside it. All of the sites listed have been important to the historical development of imageboards, or are especially active, but wizardchan is neither, and no longer exists as relevant to the information or citation given in the article (the site shut down in late 2014 and has been succeeded by a few imageboards (some now dead) and a few 8chan boards, none of which are particularly noteworthy). Also, the citation given alludes to the existence of the site, but doesn't discuss its importance as an imageboard. I am wondering what warrants wizardchan's inclusion in the article, but not lainchan, 7chan, or shrekchan's inclusion, among many others? Stackguy (talk) 06:59, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Per @Rhoark:'s edit summary, WP:NNC. One can make the argument that WP:UNDUE applies in mentioning Wizardchan along the other more significant imageboards mentioned in the list, and therefore shouldn't be included.
shrekchan was WP:UNSOURCED, edited by User:Yusheec who seemed to have a WP:COI (being a self-declared owner of a shrekchan successor)
I removed lainchan seeing it only had a primary source - following the (non-policy) WP:IS "If Wikipedia is, as defined by the three key content policies, an encyclopaedia which summarises viewpoints rather than a repository for viewpoints, to achieve this goal, articles must demonstrate that the topic they are covering has been mentioned in reliable sources independent of the topic itself" - in the process of being WP:BOLD. Citing WP:NOTABLE was an error that I made as I didn't realize that WP:NNC existed. Alcherin (talk) 13:00, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
