Chanverse is a term I use to refer to the various anonymous BBS’ that exist. Although I also use it to specifically refer to the boards that are aligned with ‘chan culture’.
The term is a combination of ‘chan’ from ‘2channel’ and ‘verse’.
I am a relative newcomerA) to the chanverse. My first visit to a chan was about 4-5 years agoB), and prior to my visit, I knew essentially nothing.
Owing to my status as a newcomer, I have a much smaller interest in chans compared to my peers, so there isn’t all that much chanverse-related content on here.
The chanverse suffers from a lack of activityC), which makes regularly visiting boards pretty pointless. The only chan I check up on quasi-regularly is Channel4, but that amounts to a visit every 2 months or so.
However, 4chan’s community have produced other websites that I visit far more regularly, among them being 1d4chanD) or the buyf/a/gs guide. I’ll (hopefully) get to writing about my favorites at some point.
