/b/ is the currently hidden Random board where there is less rule enforcement. Threads of low quality created on the public boards are locked and moved here.

History[edit]

It was originally created as a 72-hour public trial board on the old Wizardchan on July 12, 2013. At the end of its trial, a poll was created allowing users to vote on whether it shold be kept. The poll results were "93 yes" and "94 no", but a recount which discounted proxy votes determined there were more in favor, and so the board was kept. Significantly less rules were enforced on this board, and users had access to the "Name" field, allowing them to sign their posts for a few months. An Oekaki applet was also implemented so users could submit their own drawings along with posts.

The board was carried over onto the new Wizchan in late 2014, but the Oekaki feature was never reimplemented until sometime in 2017. In June of 2015, /lounge/ was created by renaming /b/ in an effort "to reduce outsiders shitting up the place", and /b/ became the hidden board it is today. In May of 2017 /b/ was renamed Abyss, to reflect the hopeless nature of all who inhabit it. It was given a default dark theme, like /elder/.
