2ch /news4vip/

The Breaking News (VIP) (ニュース速報(VIP), Nyūsu Sokuhō Bippu) board, also known as the VIP Board (VIP板, Bippu Ita), NewSoku VIP (ニュー速VIP, NyūSoku Bippu), or /news4vip/, is a 2channel board, born from a failed /news/ experiment on June 18, 2004.1)

Despite the board name and origins, it has nothing to do with news and is more for general chatting. And despite the years, they have managed to remain vaguely popular, though it's not as huge or reputable as people in the past once said it was.



On June 14, 2004, an experimental feature was added to the /news/ board,2) giving users the ability to move threads to what became the /news4vip/ board on June 18, 2004.3) The feature was deemed a failure due to heavy misuse, so it was disabled the next month. However, the board remained and rose to popularity since it was a chaotic board with unthinkable momentum from the moment that it was created.

It was believed to house the perfect mix of good and shitty threads on top of 2channel gaining traction from being more well known, so the “VIP Quality” (VIPクオリティ, Bippu Kuoriti) phrase was born. However, the quality started to decline around 2006 since the internet was becoming more accessible and the whole influx of newcomers dragged the quality down as time went on.


Some people believe affiliate blogs or VIP blogs caused the decline, resulting in a war and the establishment of /poverty/ in late 2007.4)5) In 2012, /livejupiter/ became a rival to /news4vip/ after they began sharing the “hayabusa” server on January 4, 2012. The problem was that these real-time baseball threads on /livejupiter/ would just explode, taking down the server along with all the boards on it.

By 2014, the administration decided to move /livejupiter/ and /news4vip/ onto their own servers after sharing the “hayabusa5” server, moving /livejupiter/ to the “tomcat” server and /news4vip/ to the “viper” server. This was also the year that /livejupiter/ would take the 'fastest 2channel board' title from /news4vip/. Currently, the board is still popular, but the board quality has taken a toll due to various factors.

Modern VIP

In the modern era, the board encompasses schoolkids to elders, with most people saying that middle school students are the most prominent group. With the internet being increasingly accessible, smartphone users have outnumbered the original users. Affiliate blogs are still a problem, so users still complain about them. On the bright side, they do keep newcomers and bratty kids out of other boards.
