In August 2014, a screencap of a post there was sold for $100,000 as art.[6]

In September 2014, users posted celebrity nude images which broke the law.[7]

In January 21, 2015, moot, after being admin there for 11 years, quit and Hiroyuki_Nishimura (AKA, "Mook"; founder and admin of 2chan) took charge.[8]

It has been archived by many websites that failed because they suck balls.[9][10]

4chan X was once a web browser plugin to improve it.[11]

All pages of threads that 404 have a favicon of a green 4 leaf clover with a "?" in the middle and a transparent_background.[12]
