An independent competitor to 8chan, styled 8chan.moe, that was created in 2020 as a home for dispossessed imageboard communities from around the Internet. It has no affiliation with 8kun or that site’s owners, but offers features similar to the original 8chan such as user-created boards and volunteer-managed communities. The site adheres to free-speech principles, although with a much stronger emphasis on prohibiting illegal content than the original 8chan had. Popular boards include:
/v/ – Videogames /b/ – Random /hisrol/ – CYOA /vt/ – Vtuber General Discussion /digi/ – Net Hangout /t/ – Technology and computers /co/ – Comics and Cartoons /monarchy/, /liberty/, and /fascism/ – the political trifecta boards /hispachan/, /arepa/, /mex/, /ac/, and several other Spanish-language boards rescued from the collapse of Hispachan.org in 2022 Several boards for all the various types of artwork and hentai Niche fetish boards like /tkr/ – Tickling Refuge The #GamerGate archive – /gamergatehq/ and many, many, many more.
8chan.moe utilizes a powerful, dedicated server running Stephen Lynx’s LynxChan imageboard software, which the site staff have played an active role in developing features for since 2020. The site possesses the most advanced frontend of any website using LynxChan, and the staff have developed several other open-source tools and novel concepts around the site, including distributed administration, custom caching solutions, streaming sites, imageboard database importers and converters, Tor-based video hosting, Tor-network proxies, and custom-coded anti-spam and anti-DDoS protective measures for the benefit of all anons who post there.
The backup domain is located at 8chan.se. .cc is a third fallback. TOR access can be found here, or you can access the TOR portal from the clearnet at Redchannit 2.0

ComfyChan, (formerly Classichan) provides the classic 4chan experience. Comfychab was born in early may this year when a couple anons were talking about making a new altchan. People missed the 4chan of old, and were getting tired of shadowy mods and politics/coomers on modern 4chan. It got too serious for something that started as a little anime website.
Comfychan is an altchan where politics and pron are banned, where posts are removed and people are temp banned instead of perma banned (because smaller community=more manageable), and which has a far more pleasant and interesting community reminiscent of an older era of 4chan, when it was just anime girls insulting everyone instead of some political/horny [crap]hole. It has an approach of quantity<quality when it comes to community building, so it doesn’t try to have a bigger community than 4chan, but instead a better one
9chan is an anonymous imageboard that promotes ideas over identity. We provide the best tools to host and manage an imageboard community. You must be 18 years or older to visit this site. This site is actively moderated by our team of volunteers around the clock.
9chan allows users to create their own imageboard on the site.
HIspachan was removed from the listing since the site is gone 6/6/2022. Pasting this for historical reference:
Hispachan has closed its doors. After almost 10 years, exhaustion and the difficulty of maintaining a site like Hispachan has made us decide to end it. Many heartfelt thanks to all those who have collaborated with the project over the years.Here are some interesting links:
Epitto is a super secret community, where the whole site is handmade, the development is never stopped, and user opinion and preference are really heard. We want to make an honest social media platform where the topics themselves are the center of discussion, not the people discussing them. We are ready to take up the challenge to create unique spaces for the discerning ladies and gentlemen.
So, leave your top hat on the rack, but do not forget to whip out your monocle – it’s compulsory. Then, pick a channel, the Epitto cabybara is eager to guide you to the pond.
Hivemind of Anonymous free speech, where truth does not fear investigation, and without compromised administration. On Hivechan.com you can create your own board for free, with no experience or programming knowledge needed, and as with all other imageboards, no need for accounts, names, passwords, or email to regularly post.
It’s most important board, is the /sig/ one, tied to the /sig/up community of Telegram, which is lead by the owner of https://sigup.net, a site dedicated to self-improvement, hence the name sig, which comes from Self Improvement General threads that used to be on 4chan. Originally, sigup had its own imageboard called sigchan which was linked on AllChans, but it was shut down. Hive will have a board to serve as the new home of /sig/ anons, primarily those from sigchan. It is a place for anyone to make a board, in particular political ones.
voidchan started out as a splinterchan from Ponychan back in August of 2021 after the removal of the “/ef/” board which was ponychan’s ‘almost anything goes’ sort of board however has since mostly severed ties with its point of origin.
It has a small but dedicated community, a (vanilla) minecraft server (which allows crossplay between Java and Bedrock Edition) and occasional (hopefully more frequent in the future) game-nights (jackbox, gartic phone, vrchat, etc).
Unlike a lot of altchans trying to abide to the “/a/ /b/ /pol/ etc” board standard the community is more laid out based on posting style than posting subject with /void/ being the flagship board and /null/ being an anon posting board as well as a board for planning community events and several hidden boards with the site having an overall space/afterlife stylistic theme to it.
Political posting is not “contained” and moderation is very light-handed save for a few key rules so edgy posting is allowed and unlike a lot of ‘edgy’ chans most of the core community (comprising of weebs, nerds, ex-bronies, etc) is very LGBT-friendly despite no rules against homophobic/transphobic posting.
The site is built on (Circle Puller) Tinyboard(vichan basically) with some custom QoL upgrades and is a comfy place to fun-post for folks who don’t take it all too seriously.

Y2K Cyber Aesthetic Imageboard” – VHSCHAN is a Brazilian image board in Portuguese but translates well for me on chrome to English. It has a cool theme to it and the boards have some interesting topics:
