Wizchan is a website that used to be a part of the incelosphere, but isnt anymore, and was created by someone named, "Mr. Pacific". The first major admin was Fredrick Brennan aka hotwheels, who went on to admin 8chan. Wizchan was started in 2014 as a copy of 4chan and 2chans bulletin board software, except designed only for adult virgins. A 'wizard' in the incelosphere refers to a joke which describes how an adult male virgin transforms into a wizard with magical powers after age 30. Therefore "wizchan".
Not an Incel Forum Anymore[edit | edit source]
The forum is pretty hostile to incels. The forum was mainly defined by it's role in various e-drama like Gamergate, and therefore is more filled with culture-warriors and astroturfers rather than actual incels. This site owner is also hostile to incels, filtering all mention of the word incel to crab.
Copypasta/Hotwheels[edit | edit source]
The second admin of wizchan was the eventual creator of 8chan, a paraplegic named copypasta or "Hotwheels". A parapalegic dwarf in a wheelchair who eventually got laid by an... emotional and abusive weeaboo with a fetish for disability.
Gamergate and Zoe[edit | edit source]
Wizchan is notable among cultural critics for being a central drama hotspot of gamergate, a controversy surrounding a woman named Zoe allegedly cheating on her bf and sleeping with multiple game industry people, including her boss, to get her game greenlit, promoted, and well reviewed. Accusations are that wizchan users or Zoe herself (allegedly) put threatening messages on the board directed to Zoe. Gamers made the story of gamergate to be about the gaming industry being corrupt and the entire industry bending at will to things as minor as a borderline woman offering sex. The media made it about gamers not wanting strong female video game protagonists, as if Zoe's game, "Depression Quest", would have been an asset to humanity.
Although, some gamergaters did see themselves as reasserting masculinity back into gaming.
Honestly incelwiki doesn't have time to document this autism, which is documented to death elsewhere.
