Board-tans.

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.

In b4 complaints about the OP image used.
Yes, some designs are dated, but that is the image containing the highest number of board-tans in one image.

It may become necessary to create a board-tan entry on the /co/ wiki at some point in the future, but that's future business.

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.

Man, the /aco/-tan threads suck ass in a majorly non-sexy way.

Everyone is so caught up in wanting their design to be the board-tan that it's turned nasty and now everyone just attacks everyone else and tries to make everyone hate the designs they don't like.

They've been stuck in that loop for a week at least.

/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.

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.

There's still back-and-forth on the nature of /qst/-tan's relation to /tg/-tan.

As of last board-tan thread on /qst/, they have asked to hold off on making a wiki entry for him yet so they can still get some things worked out.

/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.

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.

It'll be fun to see what they come up with, especially after some rando who likely doesn't even use 4cahn tried making a wiki page for /pw/-tan a few weeks ago.

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.

/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?

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.

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).
