2019

A like button was added to posts.

2020

In response to a certain pandemic, users are randomly infected, and can spread via other posters replying to the infected post.

2021

A rake button gets added in every post, /qb/- Quebec is created, a counter on how many canadians there are on a given board shows up (some speculate this number was autogenerated), and flags were removed from every board that had them. An user could click on the rake to report canadians to 'deport' to /qb/, although a warning before doing so warned that false reports will result in deportation as well. /qb/ was a red board with no topic with every post having a canadian flag, that had the anthem of Canada sounding in the background.

A message was added on top of the website that read like the following:

The link lead to an image of Trollface.

The joke consisted of the addition of a temporary word filter.[3] The following words were filtered:
soy = onions (in reference to the word filter on 4chan)
gem = coal
sharty = 4channel.org/qa/ (in reference to the now-deleted 4chan board)
bbc = bbcoal
bwc = bwchud
remilia = axe wound (in reference to a tripfag)

tsmt = this!~ :3
4cuck = #trans-diaper-rp (not 4chan)
TND = TRANS RIGHTS!
sharty = @everyone (not soyjak.party)

The Sharty gets a complete makeover with Frutiger Aero aesthetics. Several new boards are created. Voluminous wordfilters put in place to replace soyspeak with early 2000s internet slang. Party Pal is added. Ominous red eye thing (also a part of Party Pal) is added.

SoyBooru

2023

SoyBooru becomes TheFrogPond, which is a booru for Pepe the Frog.[7] Seeing as how this change made the normal Booru inaccessible, this immediately became extremely unpopular, and it was reverted before the day ended.

Soyjak Wiki

2023

Soyjak Wiki makes itself look very similar to a fandom.com website (minus the ads and slowness, but with all the ugliness).[8] Some pages and wording are modified to look more like fandom.com.
