will there ever be another hikichan (imageboard) in our lifetime
I hope not. At least until the lessons of why it failed in the first place have been learned by the new generation.
I ask because I'd just like another place where hikis can congregate desu. I have trouble remembering what hikichan was even like, its been so long
I never liked that board even though the other boards are fine. NEETs should be front and center. I would rather use the subreddit(s).
You realize /r/hikikomori has been normalfag max for a few years now and even before covid? what NEET subs are there on reddit? the NEET sub has far too much moderation.
uboa/hikki/ is good it is very slow and the type of place you check on weekly or monthly.
I already know of uboachan, uboa at best has a dedicated neet/hikki/ board. I mean what I said in the op, an imageboard centered around hikikomori.
I had just recently looked at that sub some of the posts just seem sort of commonplace and is treated like a public diary.

It’s Reddit so not a part of the imageboard sphere. I like to hear from people who are not anons. You don’t read a tabloid expecting a literary magazine. Can your palate not appreciate fast food?
The problem with reddit hikikomori now is that it is not even hikikomori types by far. The majority are just students who like to stay in on saturday instead of clubbing. I like to hear from non anons also and that place used to be much better. I blame anime and the rona
the problem is not that they are "normalfags" in the sense of being "bluepilled non chanfags" but not even fitting the definition of the hikikomori condition slightly.
Sometimes I use the Wayback Machine and reread Hikkichan. Anyway, I don't know, I've never been able to make any friends and there's just not much online for me, anymore. As I see it, the problem is only going to become worse with age, so maybe I should just get off the internet.

I've been reading threads on there time to time too lately
compared to old boards hikkichan is trash, dunno what you've been reading there. Its just discord zoomers.
God i hope not that place was shit most of the people on there weren't even hikikomori its why i made 8/hikki/ in the first place to give real NEETs a place to talk. It was great but eventually all good things must come to an end sadly. Also i met the admin of hikkichan.com that guy openly admitted he made the site just to shit on NEETs and that /r9k/ memes made him and his girlfriend laugh when he was in college in 2014. So it was never really meant to be a site for NEETs in the first place. He was also friends with Zombiebeatz2000 back in the day a known meme whore in the NEET community i know all this because he told me a few years back.
Imageboards were alive until the early 2010s. The only people that are left now are Qboomers, 4chan kiddies which wonder outside of their website once a year and us, the people that are too attached to a dead subculture to let it go. We're like those cringy 30 year olds that claim that emo is not dead and still dress like emos.
I’m not going to judge someone too harshly on the company he keeps. Every community has at least one meme whore.
