I'm tired of the internet!

Karachan is a Polish bulletin board founded by “Zalgo” on June 3, 2010. It's the oldest surviving Polish imageboard website, but it also has many security measures intended to deter newcomers or law enforcement, plus you can't even post without a Polish IP address.

Despite their status, it's really not interesting. The administration is inept, though that describes most popular anonymous communities, and most users aren't worth talking to because they are either fucked up, underage, or prefer to discuss politics.



On June 3, 2010, “Zalgo” sets up Karachan at the “” domain and forked the Kusaba X script,1) then security measures were presumably implemented once they started to gain attention in the media.2) Because of this, Karachan can't be archived through normal means and we don't know when they switched to Mitsuba, but we do know that Vichan handed over “Cenzopapa” to Karachan.


As the userbase grew, Karachan began experiencing server issues more frequently during the mid-2010s. Then on September 9, 2016, a moderator rebelled and gave everyone access to the moderation control panel, but the damage was done as everything was reverted a few hours after midnight. From there, it's just mostly uneventful shenanigans like raiding other websites.


Out of nowhere, “Hendrickson” suddenly became Karachan's new owner by August 7, 2020 and most of the remaining userbase of under 4000 people have slowly become more critical of him.

List of Boards


  • “Karachan” would be spelt “Karaczan” in Polish, but “Karaczan” is also the Polish word for the insect subgroup, Blattodea, which goes into why the cockroach (“karaluch”) is their mascot.
  • They have a Minecraft server named “Karagrad”, not to be confused with the 2011 “Karagrad” thread.
