* [[http://www.plus4chan.org plus4chan]], originally started as an offshoot of 4chan prime's /co/ (Comics and Cartoons) board, has since grown into its own standalone site with a very tight-knit userbase. Much of the content is still /co/ related, but there are also boards about anime, video games, cooking, music and television, and {{Webcomic/Homestuck}}, among others. Currently serves as a temporary safe haven for when things go too hectic on 4chan proper (mostly used as a porn depository though).

The best-known in the US is probably '''4chan''', created in 2003 to serve as an English-language version of Futaba Channel. Especially among [[OccidentalOtaku American]] {{otaku}}[[note]]Or, although the term is used more in a negative sense, [[ThePerryBibleFellowship "Weeaboo"]][[/note]], it's quite popular for the [[MemeticMutation generation of memes]] and, due to [[{{GIFT}} anonymous users and loose moderation]], extremely variable quality; for these reasons, one could see imageboards to be the antithesis of social networking sites such as {{Twitter}} and {{Facebook}}.

* [[http://7chan.org/ 7chan]], an imitator of 4chan and purportedly luckless when it comes to actually being recognised. Usually spread by annoyed ex-/b/-tards fed up with the decline of 4chan. Boasts most of the content 4chan does as far as subboards are concerned. Due to lower visitor numbers tends to be less chaotic. '''Really''' doesn't like SomethingAwful or the notion it's a 4chan snowclone. Maintains a {{Lolicon}} board (among other things) but will ban anything that even smells funny of CP.

* [[https://8ch.net/ 8chan]] is an imageboard made by a wheelchair-bound man known as Hotwheels, and is the second most popular English imageboard on the internet behind 4chan. The imageboard allows anyone to make their own board and host it on the site, similar to Reddit's subreddits. The site has no global rules other than prohibiting content that would get the site shut down (and even that is laxly enforced), and all moderators are restricted to one board (except for a small group that enforces the global rule). The rules for porn on the main boards (/v/, /a/, /pol/, etc.) are nearly non-existant, and while most of it is spoilered, there's a lot of it that's not, so NSFW warning. Not to be confused with 888chan.

* 789chan, an imageboard with a focus on technology. It is, however, most well-known for its /cwc/ section, which, of course, focuses on Christian Chandler of {{Sonichu}} fame. Despite the title, very few threads are about Chris, and generally discusses several other people on the internet that users don't like. Was shut down on November 2012.

** [[http://tgfb.net/ The Goddamned Furry Board]], run by former fchan admin Sage [[MemeticMutation "Goddammit"]] Freehaven. Notable for having ''really'' strict and opinionated moderators (being a private imageboard), and being the butt of Lulz' jokes.
