Seriously when did /g/ become so slow?
It was always a circle jerk of generals but now that the moderators seem to have left, the board has gone to shit
>Private tracker General
>Stupid Questions General
>Another Linux general General
>Think pad General
>Another battle station General
>/g/ reaction images General
>Web dev General
>Another thinkpad General
>Home server General
>Another private tracker General
Shit, at least in the generals you can sometimes find some interesting discussion. The non-general threads are all just /v/ kiddos, retard crossboarders and redditors posting dank memes, dumb questions and boring gamer trash.
>generals with occasional nice discussion
>rest of the boards is INTEL/AMD/NVIDIA SHILLS ON SUICIDE WATCH USING THIS OS DOING WHAT I DONT DO WHAT'S THE POINT OF RUNNING A COMPUTER HOW DO I HACK RATE MY BUILD LOL
most of the good posters left.
some died (really)
some are still here but barely contribute worthwhile content anymore, due to shit moderation.
8ch isn't bad, but it isn't the /g/ you want either.
/g/ is both slow and bad.
watches are not technology.
desktop threads are not technology.
battlestation threads are not technology.
headphones are not technology.
guts are not technology.
At least programming and webdev general are technology.
what is with the butthurt surrounding the watch threads? I don't get it at all, technology isn't just limited to electronics, and the generals feel no more shitty than any other general in quality of discussion.
Because it's not technology, it's consumerist bullshit.
>b bbut other consumerist treads exist
They shouldn't exist either.
Once upon a time, /g/ used to be an interesting place, now it's full of the same idiots that fill /r/pcmasterrace and otherwise pretentious consumers.
Watches ARE pretentious consumer shit, it isn't 1890 anymore, we aren't keeping the fucking trains running on time.
I get that aspect of it and totally agree with that sentiment, I just mean the watches themselves. There's a lot of pretty interesting, complicated shit that goes into their construction and there's really no other board that's good for truly discussing them. /fa/ of course has their own watch threads but the board obviously doesn't have a large audience of technically-minded posters and their values/goals are different.
no really, they make little /general/ communities of autistic fucks and just bathe in their own semen together, happens all over this site.
never forget that 4chan attracts an inordinate amount of legit crazies.
>>Graphics card generals
>>Graphics card recommendations
>>Mega Corp x is better than mega Corp y / blind fan boy threads
>>ssd are a meme tech threads
Yeah it used to be better but prob not by much. It's 4 chan after all, v and b tards are still gonna make threads and it can be hard to ignore them since they post so much
Pretty much this, whenever a community or culture forms online that is when you know it's pretty much the same unimaginative fucktards reposting the same drivel over and over again. This is legit autism, because these fucktards have such limited interests.
There used to be a cyberpunk and LISP general. I miss those.
>i font know how to use filters-the thread
Look here bud,i have more than 10 thread filtered on /g/ with filters u use for /tv/.Take this as you will but you need to dig a lot to get to the good threads where shitpoating is on minimum and in good spirit,where people dont scream autist every two seconds and want to share what they know and have.
Generals used to be like that example is ptg,but then some fucktards came and influenced their paranoia to the point where they are reporting anyone on the private trackers that shares invitation with other anons.shit took nose dive and boiled down to everyone leaving except 5 tripfags that brag about the trackers they are on.
Its the same shit in other generals.few people create this hell and the smart leave with time others dont know any better and stay for the shitpostin.
>90% of the Linux Community are /v/ trying to get their video games working on Wine
>Push away sysadmin and poweruser userbase that consists almost entirely of Windows
>Complain about the lack of quality discussion
Lisp general guy moved over to lainchan, you should find the threads there more slow paced
