4chan vs. 9gag

So I randomly noticed that 4chan decided to bomb 9gag with ridiculousness (and that's putting it lightly).

A little research shows that the reason 4chan decided to bomb 9gag with ridiculousness is because 9gag allegedly claimed to be the source of most or all Internet Memes that we know and love.

And 4chan didn't take kindly to that kind of claim, especially with 9gag apparently making some kind of serious cash towards these meme and using them and abusing them when, apparently, they didn't even come up with this stuff.

My take on the situation?

Well, I definitely heard of 4chan before I heard of 9gag. Heard of 4chan since about 2008-09. Just learned of 9gag this year. I also know that 4chan has apparently been the source of memes for quite a while.

Also, 4chan's FaceBook page is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay funnier than 9gag's FaceBook page. I'm glad I discovered  it.

And now there's a war between the two sites, which has apparently been wrecking 9gag's basic functions, such as signing up and posting stuff. Crazy thing is... can't you post anything you want on 4chan? without the need of signing up or even revealing your identity? So it's not even like 9gag can strike back with shit that hasn't already been 1up'd by 4chan itself.

The war has a "pointlessness" to it, but only because, well... in the end, I don't see how 9gag wins. Sure, 9gag may get more votes in polls on being better than 4chan, but that's just because of marketing. Ask 50 Cent; marketing can save your ass from anything and anyone. (seriously, how did 50's career not die going up against D-Block? marketing...)

Ultimately, I see 9gag shutting down its functions again until they just admit whatever they need to admit, be it that they're not better, that they didn't originate the majority of meme, or just simply defeat...

Personally, though? I'm rooting for the /b/rothers! They have apparently been entertaining me on the low for quite some time without me even knowing it, and as far as I know, they probably are the reason 9gag even exists.

  4. Of course.. child pornography, gore pornography and people telling you to a hero every post is far more better than a friendly community such as 9gag. Besides, 9gag didn't claimed to be the source of the memes... and the only ones who can have the right for that are the memes creators themselves

    1. Wrong, sirs. I have seen on MULTIPLE OCCASIONS 9gaggers claiming ALL the memes used by 4chan are theirs. O saw a couple claim that the rage face and the trollface were theirs. This is 1984 shit here, and it's pissing me off.

    4. any source of 9gaggers claiming the memes are theirs? never seen/heard of it.
      i prefer 9gag because 4chan's website is shit, its not user-friendly, which of course is part of the image 4chan is representing...still shit (btw, 4chan didn't create the memes either, so wtf is up with war, just because 9gag has more followers??)

    5. 9 gag? Seriously? That site is filled with pieces of shit, all copied from 4chan haha and u call 4chan a site for sick fucks dammit u took ALL of the memes from 4chan and u still call 4 chan a place for sick fucks? U don't get anything do u? FUCK 9GAG

    7. To the people who think the 9gagers are stealing the rights to memes.. you're just bullshitting. There is one Clear reason.

      1. Guy makes a site to post funny stuff.
      2. People come along who are "native" to 4chan.
      3. They start posting Rage Comics, Memes, Troll Faces and the works.
      4. 9gag gets popular.. people not used to memes first see them on 9gag.. so their brains assume... it must belong to 9gag.

      Y U NO UNDERSTAND BASIC LOGIC /b/ro's and 9gagers

      p.s. no one gives a fuck about FJ anymore.

    9. 4chan wasn't meant to be about funny stuff. 9FAG was supposed to be about random stuff that has nothing to be funny about, unless you're really retarded. 4chan created most of the poorly drawn memes, such as:
      -Trollface
      -FUUU face
      -Y U NO face
      etc.
      You 9fags don't know what other boards there are other than /b/. If you go on other boards, you'll find that they're much kinder than /b/. You 9fags say 4chan is /b/. /b/ is full of newfags and cancerfags. They would never want to see gore porn. What is up with you faggots?

      Watermarks? Eh, I don't get them either. Ads for the people who think the post is funny and shares, curiosity occurs, and the person who was shared with tracks the site and then profit?
      for nTL;DR
      1) Funny post, *shares + watermark*
      2) Person # 2 recieves, *sees watermark*
      3) Searches for site *types*

    1. The 9gag community are the biggest group of idiots I have ever seen. They are honestly REALLY stupid, and the equivalent of Medieval streetways; with all the faeces of the internet being thrown out of a window, landing on 9gag after much festering. Take a funny meme, wait a few months for it to be horribly overused, then post it on 9gag to have a community with the combined IQ of an inbred hillbilly beat the dead horse into fine powder.

  7. what they're watermarking is the comics/creation/content/idea not the memes themselves.

  8. If there are such claims by 9GAG and that 4CHAN have evidence that they own and "copyrighted" this Meme's - simply put a closed court case will decide the legitimacy of this "war".

    1. This is not 4chan v. 9gag, it's the 4chan Community v. the 9fags. There are no claims of copyright, but rather butthurt /b/ros claiming haxorz. The /b/ros are pissed that 9fags are claiming that they created their memes. So naturally, the /b/ros use trolling methods such as "hacking" and sending unpaid-for pizzas to local 9fags. LOGIC.

  9. HAHAH the WATERMARK on the 9GAG images?? Is that all this war is all about??! PFFFT OMG! I dont wanna live in this planet anymore.

    One should analyze full details before conclusion. Try to get any image from 9GAG. You'll see that its not actually a COPYRIGHT WATERMARK.

    Its an online marketing strategy that says "NO DUCK FACE ON 9GAG.COM"
    Read carefully as there is no "COPYRIGHT" "OWNED BY" "TRADEMARK" on this line of copy. Its basically a "Footer Note" to identify the source of the image.

    Once you are in 9GAG, you can actually see the Original source of the images (if provided by the user who uploaded the image)

    1. It should be about how 9Gag is pulling shit out of its ass by marketing and exploiting the originally expressive and unique content (oh god did I say that) that 4chan has had for years. It's not selling and claiming, but it sure gets a lot more money by exploiting the moronic part of society and generating much more lousy content from this part, and thus creating a self-sustaining amount of traffic which gives them easy advertising money. I knew when memes became more mainstream, shit would hit the fan just like this.

      Delete
  10. hmmm can you please post a link or evidence that 9gag claim it is the source of memes? And i do not think there is a war or anything, just mostly misunderstanding. 4chan think 9gag claimed they are the source (which 9gag did not), they also think they are the creator of all memes (which they are not) just some of the memes. So, the whole "war" thing must have other reason.

  12. insane fourchan hate. Fourchan is obviously funnier. Fourchan is obviously better. Whereas fourchan is about actual user generated entertainment ninegag is just a money making attempt.

  13. 4chan doesn't have a copywright on anything. if they wanted the exclusive use of memes, they should have applied some kind of patent on them. oh, but this is against their believings. so what are they bitching about?
    and nobody EVER claimed to be the owner/inventor of anything on 9gag. the only thing 9gaggers are proud of, is that they are a friendly community, and that their people gladly help each other out, as the nescafè story shows. this is clearly disturbing to people who only unite when it's about destroying something or somebody. they are jealous we could make a difference too. easy as that. suckers.

    ReplyDelete
  14. They each appeal to different audiences which is perfectly fine and both should exist. Complaints against 9gag, the watermarking, etc, however, are nothing compared to those against 4chan. One issue is user-generated content complaints and the debate of innovation vs imitation, but both sites are guilty of this. So even if 9gag is guilty in 4chan's eyes, 4chan should judge itself by its own standard half of the time. But it is 4chan users' tactics that tip the scales. Torture? Porn? Violence? and that is putting it lightly. They will spam-troll, w/o regard to others all because they are upset about the earlier issue, which they themselves have been guilty of.

  15. Well u cant blame 9gag to have a better design and to be more userfriendly then 4chan, but i guess its wrong they r making shitload of money out of the internet memes.

    4chan shudnt be whining about their memes being on other sites though, they arent as userfriendly and they wanted to be a 'black' hole on the internet, memes were so good they were meant to go mainstream and 4chan just wasnt the right site for that.

    So only justified claim from 4chan is the store on 9gag and the shitload of money they r making; and evryone knows the origins of memes are at /b/ board, maybe a little respect towards it might just do something good!

  16. And indeed 4chan makes some dirty moves...

    1. I'm a reddit user, most of us admit that 4chan makes the most OC. We make some too, but they pioneered it. Reddit doesn't profit from user created content like 9gag does, people don't make that so that others can profit.

      Delete
    2. 9gag is the nick jr. of the internet, and the shit on 4chan is only moderately perverted. Though sometimes you can find something really disturbing, it isn't that often. I'm an adult, I can handle seeing the odd gore and porn. That's not why I go to 4chan though, I go because it is much less restricted by social norms, and due to the anonymous nature of 4chan, a lot of content was earnestly created for my enjoyment (or at least to make me think). I'm usually on reddit, but I go to 4chan when reddit content creation can't keep up with my amount of internet use. I prefer reddit because it is user friendly. When that isn't satisfying enough, I go to the source.

    Should now better that "these contemporary internet colloquial semiotics are evolutionary and is adopted by common consensus of various users regardless of origin and source"

    It doesn't make a difference if I sell a t-shirt that says "FUCK YOU" because this is an operation-rhetorical-symbol-words used in every daily communication: NOTHING DIFFERENT IF I SELL A MEME SHIRT THAT SAYS "fffuuuuuuuuuuu..."

  19. ^^^^

    I'm going to assume that's a 9gag guy from the "friendlier" community.

    I'm looking at some of these comments, and it's like the only thing that makes 9gag "better" is limitation. OP makes an observation, comes up with a stance on it. If some of his points are wrong, point it out. You claim he lacks evidence, and yet you're just as vague. good going.

    as far as 4chan v. 9gag... well, not only can new accounts still not be made, but something on there posted within the last 5 hours DEFINITELY originates from 4chan. so much for not liking reposts...

    it'll be interesting to see how this plays out. my money's on 9gag because, well, yeah... 50 v. DBlock, Nas v JayZ, GameCube vs. XBox... being actually better doesn't always land you a win.

  21. 9gag is a company. Its goal is to make money. It uses Facebook and other marketing strategies, like watermarks and selling stickers and t-shirts to the masses. Using Facebook, it reveals the identity of his members automatically. It's politically correct by essence thus its humor is stale and not provoking.
    Its basically the opposite of what 4chan stands for.

    ReplyDelete
  22. off course its against their rules to reveal the id of their users we see what they posted in less than an hour : child porn ultra-gore pics necrophilia stuff .now we know why a part of"4chan ers " want to stay anonymous... 9gag is JUST FOR FUN. the watermarks is used to avoid dumb reposter. and for many articles form the 9gag store 9gagers ask for their création .

    ReplyDelete
  23. First of all, 9gag is not claiming the memes.
    I've been there for a long time and never have seen anything about that.
    the watermark in 9gag is not for the memes. Jesus! Is for the posts. If I come up with an idea and make it a comic, or take a funny photo why NOT be watermarked?

    Also, who are the creators of the memes? Have you got names? No. because they are anonymous. That's the bad when you are claiming to be anonymous.
    Who can tell me that those memes were not stolen f.e. from a Japanese site? (as rumor has it?)

    Anyway, I have beem to 4chan, and didn't like it. Its not userfriendly, its not fun, and has full of sick porn that turn my stomach upside-down.
    9gag is friendlier, funnier, and more polite.

    I didn't have any though about 4chan-ers , until now...
    The whole sick-porn and gore attack they did, was the most low thing they could ever do.

  28. This issue, at its heart, is not the claiming of possession of the memes, but the fact that they are taking the creativity of others, and...wait for it, because this is really the heart of the matter...making money off of them. In essence, profiteering off the creativity of others is what riled up Anonymous.

  30. Fellow Internet dwellers,
    I am a 9gager, but most of all I am a person of the internet. I believe that this silly war was silly, I believe that as fellow denizens of this beautiful internet, we bask not in hate and arguments; but in the feats of union and camaraderie that we each display when we come to the aid of our fellow Internetians. I don't fully believe that 9gag is always right, or the funniest, it is just one of the many sites on the internet, like 4chan, that gives it spice and richness.

    I believe we should stop our squabbles and unite as fellow Internetians, let those that would fuel hatred amongst us quake in fear, as they realize that we are no Anonymous, we are not the 9gag army.

    WE ARE THE INTERNET, and we stand together.

    Cheers,
    -A proud Internetian

  33. Hi. I am anonymous. Anonymous is legion.
    I laugh when your stomach twist and turns at the slightest show of blood and gore on your screen. Anonymous laugh together when they mock something stupid. They will nitpick at your grammar. They will insult your possible gender and sexuality. And yet they will always be there for you when you need help. Despite the rumors of Anonymous being a bunch of douchebag nerds- oh wait. That's true. But at least Anonymous helps you grow and Anonymous grow with you. We will not pat your ass and say YOU GO GIRL. We will tell you to fucking man up and do your shit properly.

    4chan is our main dwelling
    9gag is just a gag site that wants to earn from something it did NOT create.

    That is the reason why 9gag will never win against 4chan.

    Yeah, 9GAG. sure. stick with your softcore Internet colture. Like you even know how these memes started, why they were started, what eevn made them so funny and viral.

    I used to be like the only guy in my class who loved memes. Then all of a sudden half the class makes jokes about memes, all of them things they took from 9GAG and barely even understand themselves. When one of them said 9GAG was genius for inventing this memes, I wanted to bitchslap him.

    "FRIENDLIER" Communities + Pathetic moneygrab +involving Social network == Obviously a result of somethign bursting into the mainstream media.

    Call me Indie, call me a hipster, call me whatever the fuck your sorry ass wants to. I know Where this shit started, and hiding behind the copyright argument just proves how pathetic you guys are, bunch of snakes.

    4Chan is responsible for more than half of these memes at LEAST, and is the reason Anonymous is such a popular term. Be no one-- Be everyone.

      True, these poser 9gagger classmates of yours make the internet community of fun loving people look like a dirty whorehouse. 9gag only promoted the memes because of their cleaner system of images. Unlike 4chan which has some rather interesting stuff in the random boards, if you know what I mean. And yes, 4chan was responsible for the memes but 9gag introduced them to the public WITHOUT the very interesting stuff you find the in the 4chan imageboards. And so, I thank 4chan for introducing the memes to the internet and I thank 9gag for introducing them to me without the "interesting" stuff. So basically, 4chan is like the writer, and 9gag is the publisher, though the 9gag watermarks are a butthurt to anyone who posts them.

      3)at last they get shitted out into 9fag's mouth, where it is constantly reused and reused ad infinitum, owing to them being degenerate faggots.

      so, 9fag is not the publisher, but rather the end-user who claims that they whore the memes.

  37. 4chan is the trouble making little brother of SomethingAwful.com

    That's where m00t (creator of 4chan) branched off after he was banned from SA after posting lolli pics on the anime board. That was in part the reason for CP being posted (as a joke initially) to try and stretch /b/'s "no rules" as far as it would go.

    The CP caused m00t to make rules on /b/ which casued "/b/ day" which helped form 7chan when a mass exodus occurred.

    /b/'s disgusting nature has it's roots in m00t. He's a pedo and faggot. The mods of /b/ are faggots, 9gag is a bunch of norm hipster faggots, reddits a shitty formatted gayspace, tumblr is fapp worthy when you find them cutting nympho freaks that post naked pics, and can clearly see cutt marks.

  39. 4chan can have created the memes, most people never heard of them because they were used so badly by a site badly handled as 4chan.

    When some brilliant guys decided to handle the way this Creation of Heaven (Memes) should be used. Instantly, it became funny at a point everybody knew of 9gag.

    9gag claim creating the memes, it claims having the friendliest and cleanest community that use Memes at their best, like never 4chan could ever imagine how.

Its for kids. 4chan is the perfect mix between serious/trolling threads and wonderfull/disgusting comedy :) And most of the shit that is recycled on 9gag origins from 4chan. So which site is better?

    9gag is a newly sprung site with immature people overusing memes they don't understand and illiterate kids praising wizard books and cartoons.

  47. you see, memes originate from all around the internet, some/most grow due to 4chan, however are not orignally from there. This happens at 9gag, memebase and reddit too, however 9gag hasn't been around for too long, so has probabl;y spawned the fewest memes.

    Nothing abnormal about all the bitching about which website is better, though. People want to belong, people want an identity, and a website is close enough to providing both. Only fair that people would want to protect its name.

    Still, you guys need to chill the fuck out and have fun for once.

  56. The sad part is that 4chan shouldn't attack 9gag because some 9gaggers believe they came up with shit. What's the site's official stand on that? They would probably deny it.

  71. Wow, there's a long debate here!

    I have (or rather, had, before it sucked) been a 4chan regular since about 2005. 9gag is much newer and just recycles (mostly very old) memes from, and this is important to point out, NOT JUST 4CHAN, but also Something Awful (SA is one of the oldest internet communities and have made some of the best ORIGINAL CONTENT) so yeah 9gag has made nothing.

    Oh and in case anyone is interested. I left 4chan sometime in late 2006/ early 2007 when it started to turn shit and started being all moralfaggy and getting rid of /cake/ and other such things. 7chan was much better for a while, but now pretty much all chans that aren't totally specific niche sites suck.

  78. Hah, I love a good shitstorm. Anyway, this place looks active enough, so I shall have my say in this, as someone who dislikes 9gag. So maybe 4chan really didn't make ALL of the memes, for example, the Y U NO face originated in the Gantz manga, but for people to take advantage of original content without acknowledging sources...welp that's no good, right? 9gag's main audience is students that can't access places like 4chan (or any other 'chan, for that matter) while in school or something. Of course there is the claim that it's stolen work or whatever, but everything is reposted from someplace else, so there will almost never be concrete evidence to back that up. I for one despise 9gag for the ridiculous amounts of cancer that has spawned from that one place. People are overusing these memes, especially in real life, and to put it simply, irks me to no end. And then they start shoving it into everyday speech, to make matters worse. Perhaps ignorance truly is bliss~

  81. Wow. First time I read an article with shitloads of comments: very shallow people.

    9gag vs 4chan

    Seriously. I've known 4chan before 9gag. But I really never bothered to use 4chan after I saw its complicated interface. Dude like seriously, who dafuq would want their time be wasted by looking for what they want? 4chan's interface is pure shit. Offense intended. 4chan-ers (or whatev you call these people) really are mad that about the "oh, memes started at 4chan", "ooooh, 4chan is the ORIGINAL" YES WE ALL KNOW THAT. And so what? Talking about your interface, surely many people would prefer a simpler interface that is convenient, which 9gag offers. Go ahead and see for yourself: go to 4chan, many links appear, is that really newbie-friendly? go to 9gag, damn straightforward posts. And you guys are confused why 9gag is more favored by people.

    9gag's watermarks. Of course some stupid shallow person misunderstood the watermarks. It's for marketing, dumbass. It's not the memes they are "watermarking", it's the post. When someone posts it to another site, they would see "Y U NO GO TO 9GAG.COM" not some shitty "MEME COPYRIGHT OF 9GAG.COM" smth like that. If you really insist, then ask your 4chan owners to place watermarks like that. I don't really care. WE don't really care :)

    If your issue is "oooh, 4chan started the memes", are you sure enough?

    ReplyDelete
  82. I've never seen 9gag claim memes as it's own, and watermarks are to prevent reposts and people duplicating posts, its not working out well, but its there so that you can credit it to 9gag. And its users posting memes or whatever, just like any other site, and 4chan is saying it didn't claim, thats BS and you know it. 9gaggers like the format and the way it is, leave it be, if its "the cancer of the internet" stay the hell away from it, its pointless making a big deal of it.
