While Reddit has the obvious place for this topic, I have no idea, where to start similar discussions on 4chan.

Should I do it at all? Or is it a rather bad idea?

/tg/ seems to be suitable only for D&D campaign settings.

    $\begingroup$ I think the first question to be asked is, "How many people here use 4chan enough to know the threads of the site?" I know I've never even been to the site. $\endgroup$ – Frostfyre Jul 5 '16 at 17:19
  • $\begingroup$ I generally view 4chan as the roiling puss bucket of the internet, I wouldn't tend to go there for help or valid information. $\endgroup$ – James Jul 5 '16 at 18:00

    $\begingroup$ What's the connection between Worldbuilding.SE and 4chan? (Just trying to understand why this question belongs on our meta.) $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Jul 6 '16 at 21:15

    $\begingroup$ I think Zoltan is thinking a meta site on SE is akin to a talk page on a wikipedia article. He's not far off. $\endgroup$ – SudoSedWinifred Jul 7 '16 at 19:43

While the comments identifying 4chan as an unsavory place are well-founded, I don't think it's true that unsavory places have nothing to offer the intrepid world-builder.

/tg/ certainly has a gaming world bias, but it's also populated by sundry sci-fi and medieval fantasy nerds who often provide feedback that is broadly applicable to the task of worldbuilding.

There is also a literature board, where any literature except fanfiction can be discussed. Presumably "fanfiction" does not cover workshopping original worlds. This is the closest I can find to the old text only board they used to have for writers, back when I was an active user.

The various topical boards may also be of use to you for particular questions, especially if your primary interest is in fringe theories. The Paranormal, Science & Math, and History & Humanities boards are likely suspects for fruitful discussions, particularly if you find your questions getting "serioused out" of SE sites.

Never use 4chan, ever, unless you want unsettling pornography and people committing suicide on live streams I would recommend stay away. Also there isn't a real way to track your post, as far as I am aware.
