PTchan

PTchan is a Portugese bulletin board founded on December 16, 2010, then apparently changed domains around July 19, 2018. Not much is known about its history and the administration has mostly managed to stay completely anonymous.

History

2010-2018

They started out at “ptchan.net” using the “Kusaba X” script on December 16, 2010 and dealt with the usual server issues,1) then eventually switched to “Vichan” on August 11, 2016.2) It managed to last until July 19, 2018 due to billing issues which meant that their data would be destroyed. At that moment, their administrator believed it was time to pass ownership to somebody else as they didn't have time to manage it.3)

2018-

In August 2018, the website was revived at “ptchan.prg” and continued using “Vichan”, then switched to the Vichan fork “NPFchan” and apparently started building onto it. Then on May 1, 2021, they started using a new script called “jschan” and claimed that an archive of the old website would be available by the end of the month then deleted forever.

List of Boards

Notes

  • In the past, the website was merely represented by a simple Order of Christ Cross.
    • As of 2018, PTchan adopted “Maria Marta Cunhel Guloso” (マリア・マルタ・クウネル・グロソ),5) or “Marta”, from Kūneru Marta (くーねるまるた)6) as their mascot.
  • In the late 2000s, the “ptchan.org” domain was held by a Brazilian, given that it had a 55chan theme,7) but went down after “ptchan.net” emerged and was released by 2015.

"Blotter". PTchan.net.
2)
"Notícias". PTchan.net.
4)
/lop/ is just /pol/ backwards. If you try to access /pol/, you get Encyclopedia Dramatica's “Offended” article, which is a string of images that start off cute but turn disturbing, graphic, or gory halfway. As usual.
5)
Most of you are unfamiliar with Portuguese names, so I'll explain: “Maria” is her Christian name, “Malta” is her real name, “Cunhel” is her mother's surname, and “Guloso” is her father's surname.
6)
Kūneru Marta (くーねるまるた, Kūneru Maruta) is a slice-of-life manga by “Jingu Takao” (高尾じんぐ) that tells the story of a Portuguese woman who decided to prolong her stay in Tokyo after earning her urban engineering degree. It was serialized in the weekly seinen manga magazine Big Comic Spirits from 2012 to 2018 and currently has a sequel titled Kuneru Marta Novo (くーねるまるた ぬーぼ).
