420chan is a popular drug-centric imageboard built with a self-developed piece of software called Taimaba, and is owned and operated by Kirtaner with the help of his live-in girlfriend Spardot and a pool of international moderators. It is widely regarded as the most laid back of all the English chan-type websites, and the only chan moot himself has spoken favorably of.
 About 420chan
Located at 420chan.org this is the main website from which everything else has stemmed. It houses the various variety of boards, and is where most members of the extended community spend their time. 420chan has two official logos. The one seen in the top corner of this wiki and TCC-Tan.
 Notable Events
- Sept 5 2009 - Became the first imageboard with Artificial Intelligence.
- Sept 8 2009 - Became the first imageboard to be taken over by Artificial Intelligence (well, that was fast).
420chan also has it's own webstore, owned by Kirt. It may one day sells shirts, posters, and accessories. After the storefront is more established weed, cocaine, bongs, grinders, and other smoking accessories may be available for purchase. It will be functional soon; maybe.
 420chan Userbase
420chan users are usually mellowed out due to the sheer amount of cannabis they smoke, however they can be irritable when out of weed (and don't even mention the /opi/, /smoke/, and /stim/ guys), but are still much more tolerable than the users on nearly every other imageboard. This community is a big part of what makes this site great.
420chan has a metric shit ton of boards. They are organized into seven categories.

 General Rules
- Nothing illegal. That means NO CHILD PORN. Any child porn posted will be removed, and you will be permanently banned.
- If you act like some dumb kid or an arrogant douchebag or really anything that we deem an "undesirable element" (camwhores, trolls, etc) you can expect to not remain here for very long.
- If you're underage, just keep your fucking mouth shut about it. You're not allowed to be here, due to the adult and illicit content displayed around the site. This is for legal reasons. Do not ignore this rule and try acting like nothing's wrong, we are obligated to remove you. Underage bans are quickly removed upon displaying proof of age to a staff member. If you admit to being underage, goodbye.
- The above rule also applies if your spelling and grammar is about as bad as someone underage. Hint: you look like a total moron.
- If you want to advertise, then buy a banner. Don't want to? Then don't shill your products/services/contests by posting threads about them, pissing people off in the process, and getting yourself banned/deleted/wordfiltered for all eternity.
- We do not care about 4chan/Any other chan bullshit. Do not post threads like "SO I JUST GOT BANNED FROM 4CHAN" - You will be banned.
- Before you post, take a few deep breaths and try not to rage at anyone and anything that doesn't tickle your fancy. You are not doing anything to contribute to the overall health of the board, and instead create an air of hostility. This makes other people hostile, and things just get worse and worse. RELAX. Before your negativity gets you booted out. Moderators are there to keep things in order. Our rules are in place to protect the decency of our boards. If you have complaints, take it to /420/ where they belong.
- This website is a privilege. It is run and maintained by us in our spare time, and causes us nothing but constant headaches and lost sleep. We do it for YOUR continued enjoyment. Show a little respect to the few of us in charge.
- Lastly, try not to be a humorless little fuckwad that complains about the slightest thing because WAAAAAAH YOU'RE INTERFERING WITH ME POSTING ABOUT MY DUMB FRIENDS GETTING STONED AT THE WAL-MART PARKING LOT. Sometimes we do strange things to the site. Sit back, light up a joint, and, you know, try to enjoy yourself.
 Drug Board Rules
- NO BUYING OR SELLING ALLOWED. Asking for information on districts in a city or a general location go to or asking for general prices is perfectly fine.
- Don't troll the drug sections if you don't like drugs. They're for semi-intelligent discussion on each topic. Nobody cares about your dumb false information some idiot told you at your school's DARE meeting about how one puff of marijuana will make you rape your dog and kill your parents and shoot crack cocaine into your eyeballs.
- No goddamn POST YOUR AREA CODE threads you stupid fucks. This is for your own safety.
- Check at least 5 pages back before posting a BUMP WHEN HIGH thread.
- There are other boards on 420chan for you to post about music, movies, growing, etc. The site is called "420chan" for a reason. Please refrain from using these boards as a dumping grounds for anything you do "when you're high".
 Special Board Rules
- /420/ is for site discussion and community-to-staff interaction. Posting anything else is grounds for constant ridicule
- /b/ is a (nearly) anything-goes melting pot board. Most of the General rules still apply here. Use your head.
 Academic Board Rules
- These boards are not your dumping ground for stupid racist shit.
- All General Rules apply here
 Discussion Board Rules
- Talk about said subjects. Try to keep your conversations somewhat civil. Don't forget you can also use these boards to talk about the topic "on drugs". This is not to be exclusive to /weed/ and friends!
- All General Rules apply here
 Image Board Rules
- Keep on topic. People don't want to see unicorns when they're looking for crossdressing twinks.
- All General Rules apply here
 How do I get Unbanned?
- There's a few little things called "Patience" and "Politeness". See the link up above that says "Mods"? It contains contact information for a handful of us. Do not contact mods this way for bans. We have mechanisms in place on our IRC network to make ban management significantly quicker. Please, use irc.420chan.org #420chan for ban queries.
- The chances of being unbanned are related to the offense. Obviously if you post kiddy diddling you aren't going to get much from us.
