Good Neocities Sites
My friends outside of Neocities
Good non-Neocities sites
|Macechan||A Futaba Channel-esque imageboard made by Neocities user mace486. Has a Lainchan vibe to it.|
|Gelbooru(NSFW)||A great tag-based image repository style imageboard for anime and hentai images and WebMs. It's a bit heavy on the ads and while they seem to be safe malware-wise, I wouldn't go in there without an ad blocker. If you wanna support the owners of the site in other ways, they offer merchandise for sale.|
|Startpage||An anonymous search engine that uses Google's results, minus its algorithmic result curation, bias and data collection.|
|World4ch||A 2channel-esque textboard website that aims to revive 4chan's old textboards. It dies frequently so a lot of posts end up lost though, so be advised. Might also contain naughty language and controversial opinions.|
|Tohno-chan||A Futaba Channel-esque imageboard centered around otaku culture.|
|Exclusively Games||Tired of the overly politicized game review magazines that dominate the video game press for some reason? Well, YouTube user Jeremy Hambly aka The Quartering started his own website for game reviews with its own reviewers and community, with one goal in mind - to inform users about video games without a political spin on anything.|
|GifCities||Archives most if not all GIFs from Geocities. Millions of old GIFs available at your fingertips, just a quick search away.|
