chen2 is a realtime imageboard inspired by the early 00's anonymous imageboard and its culture - embracing the loosely organized discussion & light-hearted funposting enabled by anonymity and transciency.
Realtime means you can see posts as they're being typed live, giving a fast, conversational pace to discussion. Jump in a thread and check it out~!
Community culture is important to every imageboard, but it's damaged by moderator interference and non-assimilating outsiders. Here moderation is transparent by design, and aims only to act as an extension of the community will: stepping in whenever community shaming of an especially stubborn outsider has proven ineffective.
If you're new here, try to lurk and learn the culture before posting!
