Ugh, why KC.
Been there, done that ten years ago when 4chan went under during one of their frequent Neubienen influxes.
KC was like a private board in the beginning, everyone (all the 10 people) struggling to find our own identity (and pretty much finding it by translating known memes into intended terrible German, thereby offending all the cool kids back here). Because we were so much cooler.
Banners were made; a niche and board for everyone was founded and found in the weeks to follow and a strange love for butter was born.
The first three or four months were mostly circlejerking fun, but what made krautchan the place we remember fondly these days -at least for me- is /int/ and thus the creation of Falko's 'Polandball' and Wojak's 'That feel when no girlfriend'. Both these memes are alive and well regardless of Krautchan's demise :(
To all of you I bid a kind farewell, and with this I mean all the regulars, German and international, all the refugees this board hosted in their hour of need. It was great to share so much fucking fun with you all.
I'm sure I sound like a retarded person, but for me, Krautchan was a piece of German internet counter-culture.
Godspeed, and may Germania be with you. Und Heinrich Niedlich. Danke Australien Guy ;(
