Wholesome 4chan refers to posts showing examples of 4chan users being helpful and friendly rather than crass or negative as per the site's reputation. In the late 2010s, a subreddit devoted to such posts helped spread examples of 4chan users being nice.


Due to 4chan's reputation as a mean-spirited site, examples of the site's users being nice have been singled out for over a decade. One of the earliest known posts to feature "wholesome 4chan" users is a Demotivational Poster showing a July 30th, 2007 interaction in which users compliment another after he requested he be roasted (shown below).

The trend of celebrating wholesome 4chan posts started seeing more spread in the late 2010s with the creation of subreddits such as /r/wholesomegreentext[4] (over 37,000 subscribers) and /r/Wholesome4chan (over 17,000 subsribers). Posts from these subreddits led to the creation of articles such as College Humor's "10 Times 4chan Was Surprisingly Wholesome"[5] and Dorkly's "8 More Times 4chan Proved it Had an Inspirational Side."[6]


/r/Wholesome4chan was created January 24th, 2017 by Redditor awkwardtheturtle.[1] The subreddit's members post screenshots of interactions and posts on 4chan that are generally positive, or wholesome. As of May 8th, 2018, there are 19 moderators of the subreddit. The top posts in the subreddit include a post titled "Anons decide the fate of kittens,"[2] which gained over 2,000 points (shown below, left), and "Anon hugs his wife,"[3] which gained over 1,700 points (shown below, right).

The fun times are over though. People believe being cynical and edgy is the hip and cool way to browse on 4chan, the only reason 4chan hasn't died yet is because it's deeply entrenched into the internet culture as an unique site where you can communicate anonymously. The moderators are retards that are too busy jacking off to lolis on /a/ to actually moderate the rest of the site, so they need at least a hundred jannies to do their job but with none of the benefits other than "you're doing our work, you should feel proud". The only times the staff have actually followed suggestions instead of redirecting people to the landfill that is the feedback section, they were retarded or broke the site, such as removing (you)s, thus making it much harder for people to track the replies for their posts, or being able to make threads without posting images, which broke the site
