How can we keep /g/ free from people from /v/?
We could split /g/ into a programming board and a tech consumer board, and have the captcha on the programming board make them fix broken code, and when they do, they can make their post? Just a thought.
We turn this board into an Apple shillpost zone for a month until word spreads that /g/ is now a Steve Jobs shrine. All of our posts will be the most ridiculous, fanatical shitposting praises of every single Apple product ever released.
Then we go back to normal shitposting to scare off any Applefags that might have taken our shitposting seriously.
It's because all the retards from /v/ think /g/ is their personal tech support board, and because more retards here spoonfeed them instead of telling them to fuck off
Same reason people think /b/ is their personal army
Was about to get mad but then I remembered that I am an anime girl.
>being some mentally fragile autist that needs his precious sekrit club board just to his specification otherwise he throws a fit until his mommy comes in with his comfort blanket
some of us appreciate all technology and helping people use it
Why don't you create another imageboard with only one board so you can ban every fucking Windowsfag and Macfag from there? We are all programmers and admins, after all.
Being a windows user myself I consider this a possible solution to be quite honest. Those smart enough will be able to spoof their user agent anyway. It wouldn't eliminate all shitposting but it would deter a significant amount.
Gone, they got deleted a while ago.
When visiting the old links I get redirected to a 404.
Which is a shame as I wanted to save some code that was posted there, but then a few days later the board were gone.
That was a stupid decision by the admins, I don't get why they removed them when some people still used them, the boards were ultra slow of course, but still they got visited.
I understand that the admins don't get the concept of time, that's what must have made them think that there were no new posts...
But tripping and surfing the text boards gave new posts with old dates, it's hard to describe tho.
/g/ is a difficult board to get into. The /v/ babies are used to posting whatever the fuck they want about whatever shitty game they've been playing. /g/ requires you to actually know some shit. This is why they resort to posting Windows, speccy and GPU threads. They don't have the knowledge to post about anything interesting.
They should lurk for at least a year before they can post.
So you want to make a board that no one would post on?
there's more to technology than mindlessly shitposting about trivial differences between various operating systems in a home use case and blogging about fizzbuzz-tier homework "projects"
>spoonfeeding some retard from /v/ his next mid-range cookie cutter gayming PC to dick wave in a general is "appreciating technology"
fucking go away you plebeian fucktards, nobody here wants a sekrit klub, they just want a place where they can discuss technology without having to filter a bunch of reddit-tier normalfag blogs, bait and shill threads
>captcha on the programming board make them fix broken code
Thats not /g/ related though, /g/ is about tech related topics, and programming belongs in a separate board if anything....
Aggressive OS partisan kiddos and all of the tired, stale garbage they've regurgitated since 1996 are worse than even pleb trash like /v/ermin, which at least have the common decency to generally stay contained in show-and-tell generals unless you bait them out.
Your banal console war-tier shitposting should be the first thing on the chopping block.
They may be nice, but they're tech illiterate.
Desktop threads from and for boring people who post the same desktops every single fucking day are neither literates nor interesting and they need to leave.
Not necessarily Gentoo and RMS, but I don't get how you could get anything out of Windows besides games and ricing.
This + Hackintosh propaganda (not sure if retard or rootkit company employee) + Telegram, Microsoft software, and a lot of other shitty software corporate propaganda are a cancer.
I also propose we get rid of desktop threads. I mean, really.Who the hell needs them except for the sad people who post there to boost their confidence, thinking they're better because they can configure i3 or whatever is "in" now.
All these opinions about what this board needs and wants...
No OS other than gnu Linux.
No PC games or hardware discussion.
No anime desktops.
No one who likes things I don't personally like
No opinions I find offensive or stupid or uneducated...
Yeah guys you need a special space all to your own where no opinions or thoughts you don't like can get you. No graphics cards or apple products. No non stallman approved ideas... Ya know a space for you...where you can feel safe...
A safe space if you will...yeah that's what this thread wants a safe space filled only with people who agree with you and like everything you like. A safe space where you will be protected from bad ideas and thoughts. A safe space filled with only things you know a best. A safe space where no deviation from your interests is allowed.
In this thread /g/ comes to the crippling realization that its filled with SJW assholes.
We want a safe space to have intelligent discussions about the technicalities of technology without having to sort through cancerous consumer shit threads such as:
DAILY DESKTOP THREAD
ANDROID VS IPHONE
WINDOWS VS MAC
you want a safe space where your no doubt more intelligent discussion is praised and nobody else is allowed....sounds like something a feminist would say.
look i get it...I do but 4 chan is what it is...perhaps it used to be different on g back in the day but thats not the case now. if that particular brand of discussion is what you're after there are other places and even other chans with cultures exactly like you describe. one in particular springs to mind...go there.
but wherever you go...you do not get to dictate the interests, likes or ideas of others. Get the hell over it.
PS calling someone cancer to shut them up reminds me of the SJW crowd calling people racists and mysogynists. You have alot in common.
Please refer to the sticky at the top of this board:
/g/ IS NOT YOUR PERSONAL TECH SUPPORT TEAM OR PERSONAL CONSUMER REVIEW SITE
GET. THE. FUCK. OUT.
Alright, sensible /g/ users I've got an approach
Whenever I see a /v/ thread, I copy the whole post, start a duplicate thread in /v/. I redirect OP there and OP generally gets proper responses there in /v/.
I like this idea but we would have to do it en masse for it to have any long lasting effect.
This is a technology board.
Just because your life revolves around that fat self confessed jew and his delusional cult like fantasy license that reads like those men scared of their woman leaving so they bully them in to submission doesn't mean technology revolves around it.
It split because idiots are unable to look for generals. As soon as a flavor of the month is out the entire board is about that game. Will happen again soon with Dark Souls 3, if it hasn't already.
This term was created by a movement of corporations that want to limit the freedom of the user while profiting from gratis labor.
>should vidya even be open-source
Every program that runs on your computer should be libre and respect your rights as consumer and computer owner.
Some anon told me Stallman has said once that only the game engine needs to be free, while the assets should be considered art rather than software and do not need to be free.
I don't know if he's actually said that or not but it seems to be the best solution for games to be free software. Making a game totally free is not really viable in the current market.
In my opinion /g/ is full of questions and no action.
>should I buy this /g/?
>is this a good build?
>what language should I learn /g/?
I think /g/ would be a lot more interesting if people just stopped asking questions and contributed what they got. Like:
>look what I found!
>look what I made /g/!
>look what this shit can do!
Just my opinion.
>It doesn't run anything
>I can only name video games
>Guess what I use computers for?
Linux can run some software specifically made for Windows. Windows can't run any software specifically made for Linux. At the moment there are more software made for Windows so people don't mind. There's still a difference and the other one is less capable.
I don't even really give that much of a fuck about tech support, I just want the /v/ blogs, subreddits and retard magnet low hanging fruit threads the fuck outta here, they contribute nothing interesting to the board and have done nothing but turn it into a shittier /pol/ with lame memes and little to no OC
>choose the packages you want
the only thing I've ever found annoying to set up is an X server but that was forever ago and I wasn't as experienced, nowadays I just forward X applications from a remote server anyway
Fucking retard. Don't you drink Coca Cola because you don't know what it's ingredients are? Don't you use computers ebcause oyu don't know the source of the EFI/BIOS? Don't you wear clothes because you don't know what theay mixed to together to color the clothes in? Don't you live in a house because you don't know the statics the architect calculated when he designed it?
Fucking freetards, just unable to admit that they have no idea how to make money with computers, SO NOBODY ELSE SHOULD BE ALLOWED HURR DURR
Fuck off with your childish bullshit.
Why not add a nearly full-screen modal that contains
TECH SUPPORT: >>/wsr/
VIDEO GAMES: >>/v/
in bold, 50 pt. text, and a captcha at the end.
After someone solves the captcha, a cookie is set and the modal is hidden on subsequent loads.
