neoCafe is an imageboard/textboard website created by vulkr. It’s goal is to emulate the old style of early 2000s imageboards & textboards. What makes it unique is not only the community, but the features is presents via the imageboard software, Kokonotsuba. They have a regular /b/ board but also the /coffeehouse/ board which is a textboard that allows for file-sharing.
This one is a little different so I’m making a post on it. It is more of a proof of concept, testing kind of site. AiChan is running off wordpress instead of typical image board software. With some modification using only off the shelf plugins, it has been setup with front end anonymous posting and anon commenting. I would say some of the benefits to using wordpress is that:
1. Easy to install for noobs
2. Can easily force post moderation before posts go live to prevent spam.
3. Email notification of a new post/comment to help with moderation
4. Lots of options for optimization – easy to use a CDN for images
AiChan is running on a $10/mo VPS.
The following plugins are needed:
– Elementor Pro for the posts block with pagination. (There are tons of alternatives with posts blocks and pagination – most are not free)
– USP Pro – this is a paid plugin but allows the front end posting form. The free version will allow for 1 form, but multiple boards requires Pro
– Akismet – filters comment spam
– DCO Comment Attachment – allows images to be added in post comments
– Display Featured Image In Post List – helps with moderation – allows you to see image when approving posts in the wordpress backend.
– Autoremove Attachments – when a post is deleted, it will clean up the images from the media library.
– Advanced Comment Form – lets you remove some of the irrelevant text on the comment form
– WPMail SMTP – allows email notification of new posts/comments
– EWWW Image Optimizer – creates webp versions of pictures and hosts them on a CDN
– Astra Theme works well to pick a template/starting point
Site removed 2-11-24 – up for 2 months and only 1 non-spam post.. nice…
Soyjak.party domain updated – https://soyjak.party/
Neetchan is removed for now as there is no imageboard there currently due to spamming. – resubmit if it comes back
World2ch added (text board)
From my 2011 Forever Alone Collection Folder:
If you run an imageboard listed on AllChans and your board doesn’t have a post page here with a summary and info – feel free to send me a summary through the contact page. It has been handy to have a post for each image board for comments and tracking.
Someone did my job for me and submitted a bunch of dead board resports. I knew about some of them but usually let them linger for a bit in case they come back. Anyway.. these are gone:
WAPCHAN – 404 – this one is back.
Sidson.city – cloudflare time out
83channal – forwards to aggressive spam
Epitto – ssl error and switching to http does the same aggressive spam forwarding as 83channel
Finalchan – connection timeout
Christ-chan – connection timeout
Red Channel – Illegal content, site removed
Kind.moe – loads to a blank white page
Soyzellig.party – It’s an IB made for the Ongezellig subcommunity on soyjak.party. They mainly discuss topics related to the show and the sharty.
Red Channel – Open board creation, multi lingual site.
Christ-Chan – self explanatory
Indiachan – Bye! I am bored and don’t have enough motiviation to keep this site up. In last 30 days we served 3.16M requests (according to cloudflare). It was fun while it lasted. All the posts and user data will be nuked. Thanks to jannies, for keeping all the pedos and unwanted elements away from the board. – inchadmin
Torochan – down for a long period
Classic meme dump from my ~ 2010 sorny laptop final backup:
Hikari3 is is a newly made imageboard where boards are mainly user-created, however there’s emphasis on more friendly topics and discussions, and less on free speech. Our goal is to have a space for anyone to discuss their interests, whether its niche or mainstream, while also keeping it comfy.
Current top boards (May 2023)

I have been playing around with midjourney ai creating some pretty cool pictures. Here is the prompt I use as a baseline then adjust the subject, change time of day and focal distance/aperature:
Photorealistic full body portrait of a fair skinned woman with long hair wearing a red dress standing on the edge of a seaside cliff in Maine, golden hour, high res, 8k, isolated, no background Color Grading, Depth of Field, hyper-detailed, vibrant colors, intricate details, Shot on 16mm lens, Tilt Blur, Shutter Speed 1/ 1000, F/ 3.8, Super – Resolution, Megapixel, –ar 9:16 –v 5 –q 2 –s 750
Here are some of my results:
