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.
>>
Split the board into two, /gl/ for /g-linux/ and /gw/ for /g-windows/.
>>
>>52854840
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.

>>52855046
Even if we made a consumer board, nobody would use it. I thought /wsr/ would cut down on tech support and consumer recommending, turns out i was wrong

Ban all of discussion of Windows and video cards (unless for actual GPGPU usage). Also ban all gay-ass "rig" threads.

Windows is a magnet for gamer trash.
>>
>>52855076
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

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.
>>
>>52855060
Allow me to interject for a moment, what you are calling /g-linux/ is actually /g+linux/ or how i come to call it gee plas leenoox
>>
/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.

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.

Not necessarily Gentoo and RMS, but I don't get how you could get anything out of Windows besides games and ricing.

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.
>>
>>52861616
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
SPECCY THREAD
>>
>>52861858
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.

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.
