A thread for anything and everything concerning the anthropomorphic (or otherwise in some cases) personifications of boards on 4chan and possibly other chan based websites.
The /tg/ wiki article: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Board-tans
Gallery of board-tan images: http://shimmie.4chanhouse.org/index.php?q=/post/list Follow the links above the gallery to boards also hosted on 4chanhouse for various comics and other information/pics not found in the gallery.
I guess I'm the one doing this since no one else has bothered to make a thread for them here on the new /coc/ board yet.
If there is ever a 4chanime, I think I know how to get about it.
Season 1: Focus on the main cast being /a/, /co/, /tg/, /x/, and /v/. There will be appearances with /d/ and other boards that were the main focus from the 4chanhouse site. Season 1 will be mostly the season on goofing off. Most likely this is where the initial pairings take place. The time is pre-2010. The villain depicted is /b/.
Season 2: It's not anything new to have boards be deleted. This is the plot for season 2 that introduces special appearances from sites outside of 4chan.
Season 3: 4chan 2012. /r9k/ and /pol/ (/new/) returns. The main villain is /pol/. The plot goes through clashes with reality vs. internet. At this point, outside sites have made regular appearances with the 4chan boards.
Season 4: TBA.
OVAs: Pretty much fanfiction material that covers the Winterball, 4chan cup, and various activities with 4chan users, including creations of the /co/verse, /tg/verse, etc.
/aco/ had a very heated and prolonged argument over who /aco/-tan should be. They have yet to resolve the issue and are now trying to ignore it because of how much shitposting happens when it gets brought up.
Meanwhile, I've seen a ghost and a marble statue proposed for /his/-tan. An opossum furry rolling around in garbage for /trash/-tan seems to be generally agreed upon already. And I haven't seen anything for the /news/ board yet, though I haven't been looking. I hope it's not another /pol/, that design has already been used for both /new/ and /pol/ in the past.
The /new/ design was used for /pol/ because of the /new/ redirect. It was one of the reasons /pol/ users couldn't settle on the design of their board tan. They literally had two different userbases on the board.
>>51847 The latest is J/aco/lyn is the /aco/tan with /Aco/rn as her sidekick a la /co/lette. The other potential tans are now residents and costumers of a brothel including Madam Peacock. So a nice expanded universe already. This agreement seems to make the most people satisfied. The BrokenLynx style seems to be the most accepted.
Writefaggotry is /aco/ is the old West of 4chan, J/aco/lyn is a Lone Ranger type hero with her largely mute sidekick deputy /aco/rn. They rustle up /d/eviants and eastern hentai that have wandered into /aco/ territory. Maybe /d/tan is a villain here. The daring duo owe money to Peacock and stay/work at her brothel.
-A height chart for the male board tans (females afterwards). -Storywriting for YNH (personal project) -A smoother animation for this one gif I made of /pol/ drinking
Things I'm currently doing for board tans: -Small board tan doodles on 4chan's /i/ board (I don't mind an oekaki on plus4chan, I can draw on both) -Updating some 2013 profiles on boards added afterwards.
/pw/ finally has a board-tan. Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for "The /pw/erhouse" Mr. Dimes! The son of the late /asp/, he's taken up the mantle of his father's wrestling legacy and take it to the next level. His little sister /xs/ thinks what he does is "fake and gay" as the two have a heated sibling rivalry. That's about it for now, however the thread is still up and ripe with ideas so stay tuned for that. There are also a few alternative colorings of his outfit but this one is board colors so it takes precedent.
>>419050 Also joining him in the ring, representing the women's division and the collective horniness of /pw/, Penny /pw/ers! She acts as the new era of wrestling compared to /pw/erhouse's old guard. Dimes acts as both a mentor to the new up and coming talent and a rival to prepare her for the real beasts in the ring. No colored version yet, but there's probably more art on the way soon.
>>419050 I did notice (three days later) that you linked to the wiki in them since you wanted to get them on there.
Going through the threads, I didn't see any real discussion about his relationship with other board-tans and I just finished filling out the page on the wiki with what I saw in the /pw/ threads before I saw this thread mentioned there.
Anyway, that page on the wiki is unlocked now so feel free to edit it if anything I put on it is wrong or if you feel I left anything out (which I likely did).
I don't know what the correlation is with /pw/ and dimes, so it'd probably be better if someone in the know looked it over.
>>419072 It's a 500 error on my end. The most likely scenario is that the host upgraded the php version and that broke the ancient software. If anyone has their contact, tell them that if they need any help, I can try looking into it.
>>419254 /vst/ is videogame strategy board, presumably it is taken from the many worlf war strategy games. There is also alot of games under their purview where you play as both kings and generals, so that would be why the character looks like a general wearing a crown?
>>419254 The king is an "armchair general" who wanted them to drive closer so he could hit them with his sword, but then got the genius idea to load the sword into the tank's canon.
>>419253 There were a bunch of pics on the shimmie and with that still being down I went digging into the archives trying to figure out what's going on with this board-tan, but it all seems to still be up in the air.
Well, if you ever get to the point where you don't think Zecro is going to get back to you, I'll share this.
Not everything that was on the shimmie, but enough to rebuild if anyone has the capacity to do so. Maybe 70% - 80% of what was on the shimmie. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ltiocds578zp7nk/AABpDapdrdIOUKMvj38krGwaa?dl=0
/lgbt/-tan creation thread (I think it's the second one) https://www.mediafire.com/file/6xd0ncqpipzbr18/2013_lgbt_board-tan_thread.7z/file
Oh, right, also this. The /co/nrad and /co/lette pics are in the FJCs sub folder. I have those in the /co/ creations folder separate from the board-tan folder cluster since /co/ creations are quite numerous.
The reason there's so much is that someone made a Virtua Fighter mockup of some popular-on-/vr/ characters, and I'm not sure at which order the pics were posted, but we got Bubsy 3d, Trevor, Phalanx cover art guy with the banjo, and the Turbografx16 Bomberman cover art guy.
This was the last pic made, as far as I know the roster was never completed, the modeler guy didn't finish it. I think the next character we discussed to add was either Popful Mail or Rami-chan from Keio Flying Squadron since both were popular (possible because a dude on /vr/ once tracked down and scanned a previously unscanned Keio Flying Squadron / Popful Mail doujin by Studio Katsudon, it later got translated too).
>>419369 The zip is just what I personally had in my dropbox folder. I never saw any of these virtual fighter pics so there's no way I would've had them.
>>419368 Once they've stopped suspending my ability to make public links, sure. A /coc/ booru sort of thing would be a better solution, but you can't make boorus anymore and I spend enough of my time updating and tagging the /d/ drawthread booru as is.
>>419378 I emailed Zecro again, but I haven't heard from him since December. I'm hoping that he could at least send a backup our way and then I'd host it here on plus4chan. As long as there's someone to manage it, since I'm completely unfamiliar with booru administration. It would be better than starting from zero, plus I'd want to preserve the image dates on the booru.
>>419379 Yeah, I know you want to preserve the time stamps. I'm just trying to provide an alternative in case things don't work out, and also because someone asked me for all this in the weekly /coc/ threads.
If the dropbox links are still not working in 2 days then let me know and I'll try re-doing the links and send them your way once I find the plus4chan email again.
