Introduction Statement regarding the Compilation

It’s has been three years since I and Xantar (who is a friend of mine who attends anime conventions) founded Yotsuba Society. Xantar helped me out on the site when I was in a dark place. Then it was founded the website was not even done yet, but it did not stopped me, Xantar, and two other buddies of his to run a panel about it and the imageboard culture at Katsucon 17, with me cosplaying as Anonymous. The site was understaffed as well, just me and Australian named Ottre.

But did not stopped me from making three papers on the chanverse predecessors, maintaining an archive of 4chan threads rivaling even 4chanarchive (which is now chanarchive and now dead due to lack of staff.) Restoring wikichan via YSchan, and at one time hosted a small imageboard. This was despite rarely receiving any donations at the time, a very small staff, and few emails, and a racially and developmentally ablest harassment and stalking campaign, it was known on 4chan and recently the Russian chanverse, that I ran a massive archive site.

It seemed like I was the only one who actually cared about 4chan to actively preserve every thread I saved from 2007-2013, and made researched documents about it. Even though those documents have not been noticed until relatively recently. Not to mention that I held three more panels about the chanverse as well.

It was not until the shutdown of the archives that it was known to the archival community. At least I get to leave a legacy, by donating the 4chan archives to the Stanford Digital Repository. Despite the fact that the website and my duties allowed me pad my resume with experience and skills, it has not helped me get a job in this decimated economy.

For the most part, I’m the face of this site for the past four years, and despite rarely receiving any correspondence, I approached each little I got. So with this I decided to make a compilation of most of the content that has been posted on Yotsuba Society for the past three years.

Special thanks to all people who have helped out on or regarding the site and on the IRC. Ottre, sparky4, antitheis, Frank_usrs, Zomjab , dabeshu, Tanami/Mr.Vile, IsharaYar, Grey, Colorado, Important, Xantar, Jouva, Charizard, Warsie, fiflel, tanaka, and whoever maintains the site at vyrd.net for all the help over the past three to four years.

And an especial thanks to: Henry Lowood of the Curator of History of Science & Technology and Film & Media collections at Stanford University for inducting my archives into the Stanford Digital Repository.
