There are about 70x as many posts on r9k than there are on Wizchan. Do people on r9k simply not know about Wizchan? Are they too built into the habit of using 4chan to make the switch?
And its not how old a board is, either. 7chan has existed since 2006 (I'm pretty sure), and it's /b/ board has only 815,000 posts, while 4chan's /s4s/ board, which has only existed since 2013, and has amassed 10,000,000 posts.
How has 4chan, the most poorly moderated, poorly designed imageboard (except maybe endchan) held onto that many users?

Maybe the real LARPing coping newfags are the friends we made along the way


We're in 2023, most oldfags left and newfag larpers claim they have been here for thousands of years. The most vocal posters on wizchan are newfags as well.


have you seen modern r9k retards? it’s all underage discord normies. none of the people on that board today even know what a wizard is.


You're a funny guy :D
I've only spent ~100 hours on r9k and I've seen wizchan mentioned multiple times


The whole internet is full of zoomers who would be considered 'normies' by the standards of most people who grew up with imageboards. Even wizchan has its fair share of zoomers who can hardly be distinguished from normies and various threads have shown that there's a lot of young people here who have friends and do social stuff irl and they also share normie consumer patterns.

This place here is pretty much an illusion as many others already realized. Rules prohibit certain posts so you will hardly see posts about irl social activities etc. but that doesn't mean the people don't do these things.

Why does this keep happening?

>stay awake for 20 hours so I can go to bed later and slowly move towards waking up early

>wake up after 4 hours and feel too awake to fall asleep again and yet too tired to do anything
>will randomly sleep for 12+ hours just when I thought I fixed my sleep schedule


like how do I wake up after 4 hours when I was awake for 20? I should be getting 8 hours of sleep easily.


you messed up your internal clock and it could take more than one night to fix it. i was similarly struggling for months until i broke the pattern by oversleeping. easier than staying awake for longer.


no matter what i do i return to my retarded schedule. it’s not bad now though summer means it’s hot as fuck during the day and the suns out longer.


>You've been banned at least 25 times in the past two years for Rules 3, 4, and 5. Much of these bans you don't see because you IP hop so much. Despite being banned you still manage to openly mock the users here for hours each night, which doesn't do your case against VPN restrictions any help.

>Sorry you can't post from work and school anymore but that's the consequence of being chronically butthurt and taking it out on random wizards.

Actual, total lies. Holy shit. I didn't IP-hop before rule 5 bans. I didn't IP-hop at all. I'm not going to respect your butthurt-bans, obviously, which is what rule 5 is. You're blatantly making shit up about rules 3 and 4, but that's beside the point. I'm not actively mocking anybody here (beside the staff after your admitted 25-chain ban for rule 5 lol), especially not for rule 4 (feel free to link a post you think I violated it with, you supreme retard, let's see that stretchy logic). Rule 5 is clearly an excuse to ban anybody for any reason. Plus, you're fat.

You're actually so mad and delirious that you're applying bans to me. You all have a personal problem with getting anally raped by my superior oratory. I haven't even been banned a quarter as much on 4chan AND any other website combined, in over 20 years!!! You niggers have a fucking problem inside your brains.

Furthermore, the thread only exists because you accused me of spamming your gay, dead website. You faggots are dumb as hell. I could post a response in meta directly under normal circumstances, but you dipshits literally damage site functionality with your idiotic pettiness. I get banned for metaposting on meta. Amazin'! Suck my dick, little dumb niggers.

>t. lonestar cockrider, giddyup


Wtf does that mean schizo. I'm just asking why you are so butthurt about getting banned when you could just keep posting and no one would notice. This place is most likely facing its end soon anyway.


>no one would notice

and that's the problem :(((


I have been posting, but the admin is specifically blaming me for spam now when I've never done anything remotely like that back when I was posting on a single IP or since.

Yes, I know what you mean, but I would argue that's the whole point. Freedom to choose. It always stuck out to me how it says that God is both all-powerful and wants everyone to be saved, and yet clearly everyone is NOT being saved by force. That always gave me a lot of insight into who God is and what the point of it all is.

It's a conundrum in general how to reconcile an all-powerful God with other people with free will. Especially if God wanted us to do something - how can we be made to do it without being forced, without ruining our free will? A solution I see is to be allowed to literally choose what world we want to live in. Having the facts be able to go both ways is the opportunity for a free choice. Besides, what atheism was always all about was that it was "more rational". Yet when you keep piling evidence against it, the position then becomes "Okay but there's still a technical possibility for atheism" - like for example bringing in the hypothetical multiverse to explain how our universe is possible. Relying on an infinite multiverse is a phenomenal way to admit the odds are infinitely not in your favor. But I digress - the odds for one or the other never become a clean 100% or a 0%. There's a non-zero chance of atheism being true, of course. I believe anything is possible. But that includes God too. It comes down a choice - which one I personally think makes more sense.

But beyond the question of God merely existing, this conundrum persists further. Does God love us? Is God actually good? God's all-powerful - could God lie even after everything, even after literally getting tortured to death for us? Of course, by definition God can. Is there a 100% guarantee? No. So even here you have to have blind trust and constantly freely, deliberately keep choosing to have faith. But I'd say that's just how interactions with other people go in general. You can never be 100% certain in others. People have to always blindly trust that the spouse they sleep next to every night won't decide to kill them in their sleep - which there are cases of that happening, it's a non-zero chance, and nobody ever expected it to happen, too. But optimistically, having your blind trust constantly validated time after time after time, constantly being pleasantly surprised anew every moment, forever - that really must be Heaven.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Sincerity is a virtue, but we generally don't base our views on how the whole universe works based on 12 people being willing to be tortured for their views.

That logic is not so far off from "trial by ordeal".

In day to day life we do give a lot of credit to statements in sincerity and against self-interest. But if you read about 12 sincere men executed in Iran today because their sincere belief in a new supernatural claim, you wouldn't change your existing views to include their beliefs.


Depends on the circumstances, obviously. It would be enough to at least consider what they're saying. Especially given Paul, who was originally going around killing Christians, until he had a supernatural encounter with Jesus that turned him around, in his own words. Imagine if, I don't know, Varg Vikernes suddenly converted because he "met Jesus" and then went on to become one of the main powerhouses of Christianity, to the point where 2000 years in the future people are debating whether or not he made up the whole religion (as people do with Paul).

And we're only discussing the historicity of the Resurrection here. There's a lot of other things that atheism just explains as coincidences and random chance. It's a game of "How many coincidences are you willing to tolerate?"

But as I said, all this should at least put it in the category of "being worthwhile to consider". And the more you think about it and the more research you do on it, the more sense Christianity makes, at least in my experience. If what the 12 hypothetical men in Iran were saying also made so much holistic sense, I would be quite shaken up.


This man has a very realistic outlook on things. Especially his point that certain saints most likely would have never even been canonized in today's time stuck with me because saints with dark pasts like Moses the black or Saint Mary of Egypt would probably get glorified for their past destructive behavior in today's times and not for their repentance and virtuosity that they found later, they wouldn't even find it in today's age.


I am not a Christian but if Christianity is a home I'm standing on the welcome mat.

In my better moments I am devoted entirely to God. I am a theist. But in my weaker moments I truly fear and hate God and deep in the hinge of my soul I reject him entirely. It's difficult to describe, but I hold a grudge because of how shit my life is and how I can't fully understand why Evil exists.

Well, when you actually say you stopped reading but then proceed to mostly agree with what I said and then ad hominem on the reply, it just shows it's not worth to take the time to think up a decent response.

I just find it hilarious that you pointed a problem that is literally a 1% benefit policy (immigration forever for cheaper labor) and once I point out the culprit of such policy you have the 'commie!' knee-jerk reaction. Unbelievable how gullible you are. Who do you think made those policies in the first place? Brown people? The middle classes? Who? Who can can purchase government policies? Who controls the media? It's not the fucking aliens now is it? Tell me exactly who that group might be.


>Who do you think made those policies in the first place? Brown people? The middle classes? Who? Who can can purchase government policies? Who controls the media? It's not the fucking aliens now is it? Tell me exactly who that group might be.

I already said it's the Jews.


the elites wizard


"Da Joos" is the retarded man's version of the capitalists. (Though there are a lot of kikes in power).

>dey took our jerbs
Nigger, who do you think benefits most from this? The 99% or the 1%?


I truly loathe my city. Any burgers know what the final outcome/state of a gentrified city looks like?


Police exist to keep society safe! Just call 911 if something happens and it'll be all ok
Officers regularly insult, threaten or belittle suspects, hand out fines they know will lose in court just to intimidate, overstep their legal bounds and often barely understand the regulations they enforce. If they get caught abusing their power the unions will cover it all up and they are almost never prosecuted.

If you call the police to report a crime that isn't life-threatening it will take hours before they get back to you and usually they'll tell you to drop it. If your case makes it to court you'll spend thousands hiring overpriced sophists while the judge attempts to rationalize an essentially arbitrary decision rarely even connected to retributive justice. Not to mention the entire criminal justice system in the west is weighted to explicitly take racial considerations in account and downgrade punishments against minorities while exaggerating punishments against whites. People with nothing to lose like the homeless or repeat offenders can easily assault or vandalize property with little recourse.

If you think Law Enforcement exists to protect the population from anything but egregious white-on-white crimes, you have never actually interacted with them.

I also concur that Eurocops are worse in a way compared to Americops. The latter can be polite and lax in substantial numbers, balanced by the amount of low IQ sociopaths and amoral pension piggies of course, where some will just give you a warning if you're speeding or if they find some a blunt on you, and there are more laws that respect rights and what cops are allowed to do which can be fought in an incident or in court. In Europe there are less laws protecting liberties and rights of individuals, cops are trained for years and are more indoctrinated in the government's ideology as a result and will follow that doctrine unscrupulously, there not being much you can do if you get fucked around by them, and cops having more protection as a result. Whereas in America they do whatever saves their job and mindlessly go through the motions of it like a 9-5, shooting people for no reason along the way and getting a "sorry" as compensation.


People still use that "poleez is ther 2 protekt u :)" rhetoric? I thought people were already explicit about the true role of state, police, and businessmen. I think you might be talking to 5 year olds if you think people seriously believe that shit.
Actually, are you old enough to be using this site?


>like 80% of police time is now enforcing 'domestic violence' rules which were set up by activist misandrist feminists
Because succubi think in groups, they have a hive mind, meaning when you do one thing that pleases one succubus, be sure that it pleased them all. that's why authorities and governments are quick to act in the benefits of succubi, because you immediately get the approval of 50% of society and less than 50% disapproval from men. Complete victory for the majority. Glories democracy.


I think people who still think justice system is not broken, the government is not utterly corrupt and pigs are anything other than drones that exist to protect rich people must have a two digit IQ. I am not saying this to belittle other people I just cannot imagine how anyone can think otherwise without having a serious mental handicap.


they are a corporation protecting other corporations…

citizenship means corporate employee…

only way to be free is to renounce it, btw they will gaslight you on every step if you don't know what to do…


which board here gets the most traffic would you say? i want to post a 40 year olds+ thread but dont know where to post it.

>in order to upload files you must disable your proxy



and furthermore, i wouldnt even know where to post it anyway.

i mean what the hell is the difference between the lounge, dep, and wiz? they all look the same.


newfag lol

everyone browses /all/ so post it anywhere. most high traffic board is the hidden one >>>/b/

also, proxies are banned from posting images because of an incident

uhhhhh yeah it's all the same shit basically but there's a subtle difference in quality. /wiz/ is supposed to le serious board for high quality discussion, /lounge/ is more relaxed and /dep/ is for shitty blogposts about your life.


newfag here yea, but i as posting dial soap threads on 4shit like 15 years ago.

also of course there was an "incident" why would we ever be allowed to use fucking proxies online these days??


yeah, it sucks. some of us just want privacy, but rule breaking spammers always ruin it for everyone. i got used to posting without images long ago.


the net is cooked i keep chasing the dragon now into my 40s trying to find what i had.

fucks sake its cooked.

any wizards in the mood to talk about free android apps? i hope so, welcome to my ted talk about free and open (well mostly) android apps.

realistically i use like 5-10 apps on my phone: weather, music, newpipe (youtube) sudoku, osmand (open maps), calculator, clock, signal (for textmessaging) and calandar.

i have installed maybe 30 apps and most i don't use. i may have used them once or a few days but never longterm. i thought it would be fun to just talk about apps that are useful. whenever i look into my app drawer i am surprised how little of the possibilities i use. i just wanted to dive into them again. contributions and valid opinions based on principles are very welcome and appreciated by me. i intend on showing a few screenshots of apps i like and talk about them a bit. feel free to ask questions that relate.

first app i love is the alternative app store i use. i don't have google play on my phone, instead i get apps from the f-droid. you don't need the app to look what they offer, you can just see what they have with a browser.

this is the f-droid page about the f-droid app https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.fdroid.fdroid.

i like the f-droid very much and i am grateful for it because i never felt good using google play. in the beginning i didn't know better but then after i found out how dirty google had become, it just wasn't fun anymore to use android, i hated it, it became a chore and i didn't care about anything that happens within google play. f-droid feels so much better to me.#

strangely it always works better when i install it and then when i don't update if for months and months then suddenly the thumbnails stop working but other then that it has never disappointed me.

that's it. these are all the apps i have, mostly free ones. the one important non-free one i am using is the folder music player and other then that i found that i can do without all the proprietary nonsense.

there are so many apps i have never used or seen that i have no ambition of trying out: ride sharing, car sharing, vehicle renting, food ordering, digital tickets, amazon and ebay and all these other websites that would prefer to be apps to being websites; i have no desire to ever sink so low as to use these soulsucking services.

i think humanity was meant to get technology that becomes better and simpler but instead humanity gets technology that is dumb, convenient, more profitable for the owners and turns the users into cattle. fuck all that.

if i think or more apps, i will post them. would love to hear some wizard recommendations for nice apps. there might be cool stuff i have no idea about.


the wikipedia app is pretty good


>if it was easy and comfortable to be homeless, nobody would work in a bank so there is cultural incentive to destroy free things.
if you are young and mobile, it actually is pretty decent if you can make it to a rich coastal liberal city like nyc, sf, pdx, sea, etc


Hey wizzie can you teach me how to git gud at sudoku?



yeah, use this app and play on a difficulty that is just slightly too hard for you. back when i was doing sudoku on paper i could never solve the very hard ones. now it is no problem.

the app has the ability to make a checkpoint, basically like you can make a savestate in an emulator. you play until you have exhausted all moves. means you have filled everything in and made the little numbers everywhere. then you activate the checkpoint and just make a guess. the ideal guess is a 50-50; you take one cell where you know it can only be one of two little numbers. after a few such guesses you become good at finding places to guess, you would want a place that triggers a chain reaction that cascades into solving large part of the board or even the entire thing.

so you decide on a 50-50 cell to guess and then you make the checkpoint and then you fill in your guess. remember your guess in case it was wrong so you can do it again with the other number! you either solve the puzzle easily because the guess was correct or you encounter a mistake. when you encounter a mistake you revert back to the checkpoint and then you can safely assume that your guess was wrong so it has to be the other number you didn't fill in. on paper this always took me a while and made the puzzle very messy, but with the app it becomes simple.

I like reading about what's new in the world during breakfast. With hobbies I know which sites to check for news but what are the best ways to get informed about what's happening without being shown a lot of noise and pointless negativity?

I used to like reddit for showing me things I wouldn't even be able too look for. Like some guy making a cool diy project, or some interesting trivia or pictures of some rare animal I didn't know existed before… but now there is too much politics and outrage shit. I know life is not all sunshine and rainbows but I don't need to see a video of someone getting beaten up…

I don't fully know what I am looking for. Something to broaden my horizon. Something to get a feel for the world.

96% of news is sports and celebrity garbage
3% is elon musk, ai, techbro nonsense
1% is buried like gold nuggets in piles of shit you must wade through


Why would you seek out bias news sources that promote hysteria just live your life anon


you can't read the news without seeing negative stories.


there's wikipedia

and then there's this ai thing
i usually don't find these ones interesting, but maybe it's because im retarded


I'd recommend Level1Techs on youtube, who do a Monday, wednesday and Friday news roundup. All three presenters are very watchable.



years ago, wizardchan made a list about what wizzies learn through their years of knowledge about diverse thing they learned about. but alas, I lost it. does someone knows what Im talking about, can someone have it?

I'd also add some new book to this collection: "Ultra-powerful metabolism" by Frank Suarez. Quite ideal for those who cannot overcome food-cravings nor fatness. He has a youtube channel, too.

New things he taught to me, that the others ignored:
>Usage of glucometer to detect which foods your body silently detests
>How much insuline can trouble anyone's life
>Detox by alkalizing diet can still be obstructed if you keep taking any of those specific foods, which vary from a peer to another
>Difference between excited and passive nervous system, why the last one is the needed to finely perform detox
>Why Keto diet works for some people while failing for some others
>How vegetable fats are enough to help you to build muscle
>Even if something is non-sugary and raw, alkalizing, a specific body may show bad glucometer results about it, indicating excitement and insulin peaks
>candida fungal infections can be reduced by this practice

Things he confirmed, coincidence with other authors:
>He supports Johanna Budwig therapy, even explains it
>starchy foods are mostly bad. He might feel indulgent towards those who do not give high glucometer results
>raw veggie juices are great for detox
>intermittent fasting quite the same
>water and oil can also be alkalizing if taken correctly

He even has a fan club




was this an old thread on /hob/ circa 2015?


I don't remember, I think I got it on /wiz/ during 2016(?)

do you know what I'm talking about?

can you post them, I doubts it's the thing I'm researching because it was on page on internet

Like I said, it was some phrases on life in general or 'tips' for life in general and it was (most of them) all greentexted. If someone remeber it please help us recover forgotten knowledge of past wizards (if this thread isn't getting clear for everyone, it means, people who have posted the page/done the knowledges aren't here anymore)

thank you everyone for bumping to seek old knowledge!
