What was the best time to be on /a/?
hard mode: not the first year of 4chan
2007-2009 was decent, sometime it was a fucking nightmare since moot literally abandoned all board without so much a single mod / janitorr. /a/ did okay with its self moderating and survived, though not for long
At the time of 1,2 years ago, /a/ went to literally shit and then started having daily 500+posts Naruto thread.
/a/ quality nowadays is roughly the same as /v/, /co/
>/a/ quality nowadays is roughly the same as /v/, /co/
As someone who occasionally visits one of those
guess whichplease never say that again. /a/ is much better, even now. It might not be at its peak but it isn't anywhere near that level of trash.
When /v/ blew up in 09 is when /a/ got way anal retentive in a collective reaction of 'oh shit we could end up like /v/'.
The era preceding that is just too freeballing for my taste.
there's no right answer, it depends entirely on how you spend your time on it
Ignoring things is a mistake. It just allows the retards to take root and then spread from there.
>bitch at thread
>people tell you to hide it if you don't like it
>don't see the irony in that they can just hide your posts
Your right it is a matter of time. /a/ will still hold out longer though. I've seen more people getting back to the elitism. It might be small but there is a revival.
With some luck maybe things will turn around.
At least /a/ has alternatives with decent posters. There aren't any good ones for other boards.
