How to Find My Post on 4Chan

4chan isn't like other message boards. It has such a cult following and ready army of users that a thread you posted just moments ago can wind up buried and seemingly lost forever. Tech-savvy 4chan veterans and site administrators developed a few tools and tricks you can use to keep track of posts once you've released them into the 4chan wilderness. If you're new to wandering around the site, beware. Adult content and potentially offensive images lurk around every corner.

Most 4chan threads disappear quickly.

NOKO Command

Step

Prepare your submission using the blank post submission form at the top of each page.

Step

Type "noko" without quotes into the email field instead of typing in your email address.

Step

Submit your post. Doing so will enable you to stay in your current post if you intend to actively participate in the thread, eliminating the need to go back to the board and find it. Keep this window open and and continually refresh the page to view your post and any updates.

Bookmarking

Step

Complete the submission form and submit your post to 4chan. Open your post immediately after you submit it.

Step

Add the site to your bookmarks or favorites folder.

Step

Open your bookmarks or favorites folder from within your browser and select your 4chan post to view it. Your post will be viewable for only a limited time until it's deleted by the site or administrators.

Firefox Toolbar

Step

Install Firefox from Mozilla.com and open the browser.

Step

Navigate to 4chan.wrathfilledhate.net and click "Download the 4chan Firefox Extension!" Click "Allow" when prompted by the Firefox dialog box and wait for the tool to install. Restart your browser.

Step

Post to 4chan, then navigate to your post. Notice you now have a blank check box to the left of your post's title. Check this box to follow your post using the 4chan add-on's Thread Watcher.

Step

Click "Tools," "Extensions," "4chan" to launch the add-on. Click "Thread Watcher" from the menu on the left side of the tool.

Step

Choose from any of the threads you've added to Thread Watcher to open it.
