Accessing Boards Exploring Boards in Depth Browsing Safely Community Q&A Browsing 4chan for the first time can be an overwhelming experience.
Some boards, like the Random board, are filled with images and language that would offend or disgust most people.
However big your gang is, ICQ has got room for everyone.
Users generally post anonymously, with the most recent posts appearing above the rest.
4chan users have been responsible for the formation or popularization of Internet memes such as lolcats, Rickrolling, "Chocolate Rain", Pedobear and many others.
The site's "Random" board, also known as "/b/", was the first board to be created, and is the one that receives the most traffic.
Avoid clicking on strange links, don’t follow advice that seems unsafe, and never post any personal information on 4chan or any other online forum.
For instance, on December 28, 2010, 4chan and other websites went down due to such an attack, following which Poole said on his blog, "We now join the ranks of Master Card, Visa, Pay Pal, et al.—an exclusive club!
" Upon the creation of 4chan, Poole encouraged users from the Something Awful subforum titled "Anime Death Tentacle Rape Whorehouse", who also happened to be dissatisfied with the forum, to discuss anime on his website.

4chan is split into various boards with their own specific content and guidelines. Launched on October 1, 2003, the site was modeled on Japanese imageboards, particularly Futaba Channel.
