ShrekChan (now called pigchan because xD so random edgy pig cult!!!)was a "safe-for-work" imageboard designed to "ironically" mimic the brony fandom (which not only was dying, but had been milked for all it was worth upon the time of the sites founding) through usage of greentext fanfiction, poorly made photoshops and fanart, and other such material relating to the Shrek franchise. Though humorous at first glance, the fact that the site actually has a dedicated userbase composed of redditors who believe pretending to be a member of a radically faggy fanbase constitutes as some kind of wit is really quite depressing. Though popular opinion still unanimously agrees that bronies, furries, etc are vastly more insufferable, it is widely acknowledged that these losers' misinterpretation of irony ranks them somewhere near Ayn Rand supporters (though most ShrekChan frequenters likely do this anyway).
Before reading (or more aptly, skimming through) the rest of this article that has been commandeered by the userbase of this site, it is important for you, the reader, to understand the mindset associated with the kind of people who dedicate time out of their day to blogging up the kind of unfunny shit found on every page of Shrekchan. While the joke is supposed to be that it is seemingly pathetic, the fact that an actual community that has stemmed from this, on a site someone someone is paying money to maintain, transcends humor and effectively renders the users of this site actually deplorable human beings as opposed to just pretending. The pseudo-irony implemented by Shrekchan users is somewhat similar to that of hipsters: hipsters utilize "irony" as a means of attempting to show that they have accepted, and do not care about leading the most bourgeois, mediocre lives imaginable in the same sense that Shrekchan users do so to hide their poor communication skills and overall boring selves to the rest of the internet.
Essentially, Shrekchan is a place for people who are too uninteresting and/or cannot communicate in a normal manner with other people to get the human interaction they crave in a manner that doesn't trigger their crippling social anxiety.
Shrekchan users seem to be widely unconscious of their own uselessness to society, so please remind them at every given opportunity.

In 2014, the site died due to the increase of shitposting and the unrelevance Shrek memes had at the time, also because the site was a shit. The admin decided to create a new chan based on pigs instead: Pigchan. Visiting Pigchan is forbidden in Qurans, so its sandnigger free.
