You see, the big issue is that none of my formerly favorite boards are strictly "good" anymore, given that the previous generation of posters is slowly petering out. This is why I still hesitate to renew my pass, since it all would be for about three posts per week and the occasional one on mobile data where I might be rangebanned. You probably have a more optimistic idea of this place.
That said, I have heard good things about the latest video game boards, in particular /vrpg/ and /vst/, even if that means they're more on point compared to the cacophony that /v/ can be sometimes. /an/ is great for just lurking images of funny/rare/fictional animals.
