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 (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" and Dorkly's "8 More Times 4chan Proved it Had an Inspirational Side."
/r/Wholesome4chan was created January 24th, 2017 by Redditor awkwardtheturtle. 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," which gained over 2,000 points (shown below, left), and "Anon hugs his wife," which gained over 1,700 points (shown below, right).
Other popular posts include an edit which featured an anon inviting /b/ to roast him but the anons said he looked good (shown below, left) and a post where users celebrate with an anon who goes on a job interview and gets the job (shown below, right).
