This board is literally /b/ now. I am leaving and you should do the same.
Lack of janitor. Really.
/pol/acks shilling ruined this board.
8ch /int/ died long ago... Some fairly decent memes were spawned and died there.
This tbqh lads
Are you kidding? What /pol// threads do you see? This board went to shit when mods stopped banning porn threads and thinly veiled /b/ threads
People started hiding away in generals and redditors came here and started over using meme and using this place as their playground. /pol/ is hardly the problem here
Literally every day there are 2-3 frontpage threads directly linking to a news article (hint hint what /pol/ is for) all about current events. Are you blind? Not only are those posts supposed to be on /pol/ you could switch them between the boards and not even know they were originally posted on /int/ its pathetic and you're seriously thick for having not noticed this
>/pol/ is hardly the problem here
Are you fucking kidding me? You have got to be a regular /pol/ browser to believe that.
>outright /b/ garbage that's now shitting our board as of late
>still shit but are at least normal shitposts that we've gotten for years
You think the problem is international news threads?
There will always be new poster here, especially when people can make banter about it, /pol/ my called the news board but anyone who has been here more than a day know is isnt.
Whats absolute shit is when people post threads like ">your country >would you suck this cock" and complete /b/ tier nonsense like this
>especially when people can make banter about it
Most of the time it's plain circlejerk with butthurt conservatard arguing about head stomping foreigners and how it was better during Nazi occupation.
>I am an old fag durr hurr
More /b/ tier shit, I dont care if you think i"m old or new I'm anonymous here. Moderation was much stricter and it was good for the board, I remember news threads and they were only deleted when they were blatantly /pol/ tier but being shocked by the rapes in cologne and posting an article here about it to discuss or joke shouldnt be considered /pol/ tier
I'm not saying its a good board. At its time /int/ was better. I don't really like /his/ either but trying to have a historical discussion on /int/ is pretty much impossible now. You're not going to have any actual discussion just people spamming 6 year old tired old memes.
You can't eliminate people's political views, you can't get rid of the political dichotomy on /int/, if you are conservative you most likely browse /pol/ and will bring your sentiments here but these are the same people disturbed by current events in the news
That mentioned, news threads are certainly not the cancer of this board but senseless /b/ tier shit and political bickering is, both can be avoided by heavy moderation
>Anyone who has been here more than a day
pulling the oldfag card like a /b/-tier faggot I see.
You're also completely wrong. They would pull any post that had a direct link to a news article in the original. Didn't matter if it was "pol-tier" or not it got deleted. Anyone whose been here more than a day should know that.
>Anyone who has been here more than a day
Why are you so obsessed with this "muh oldfag" crap? I said the above statement to denote that it was obvious, so stop projecting
>You're also completely wrong
If you such an "oldfag" than you should know this never happened, people post news articles all the time and always have and only blatantly /pol/ tier content was deleted, this is one thing the mods have right currently. If you have a problem with the political opinions of others being expressed here your going to have an even harder time in real life when you get off the computer
>Why are you so obssesed with oldfag
I was merely pointing out that you brought it up and continue to bring it up.
But I will also point out again that you were wrong. People would put links into reply posts but never into the original post. Putting a link into the original would get it deleted. This is a fact. This is something you can't change.
>Some tirade about me hating other people's political opinions.
Who said I hated other people's political opinions? I said this wasn't the proper board to do this.
Do you honestly think people news articles is what's wrong with this board? I wouldn't tell the difference if they did or not, I just think its insane that someone would mention this as the root problem and it seems to me you were concerned because of the political attitude that sometimes follows with it
>This board went to shit when mods stopped banning porn threads and thinly veiled /b/ threads
There were always some politics on the board. But "POOP XD POOPY" threads? That shit is new and it's awful.
Also porn. A little once in a while is okay but I think the janitor needs to crack down. It's a sfw board at the end of the day. No more HIGH TEST threads.
The politics could go too, of course.
>would you suck this cock
is obviously inferring that the OP posted a nsfw image. due to the lack of mods threads like these gets rampant. We've always had shtity banter threads but blatant /b/-tier shitposting is a recent thing.
>hurr why isn't int cool and fun like the epic screenshots from r/4chan
Yeah and people used to ignore it or use them to make fun of other countries instead of crying for more moderation.
To be honest the people shitting up this board the most are metafags and people who harp on about /pol/ or whatever whenever someone disagrees with their shit world view
You were the one that said the mods were only deleting articles that were "pol-tier" I was the one that said they used to delete news articles period regardless of political orientation.
And yes I think that a board that is meant for people to share their cultures is ruined when its just constantly flooded by people bickering about current events.
Shitposting, ala >>53456202, or >>53456156
has been around forever. Making jokes at another country's expense is an /int/ tradition.
Threads which are literally about nothing aren't threads for this board. "POOP" threads with a yellow smiley isn't /int/ related in the least. It's not about how Americans shit themselves. It's not about Indians shitting in the street. It's just a thread about nothing.
>And yes I think that a board that is meant for people to share their cultures is ruined when its just constantly flooded by people bickering about current events.
This will happen regardless. And if it ever was eliminated you would never see international discussion because people would be hiding in generals or looking at porn posted here
>I was the one that said they used to delete news articles period regardless of political orientation
yeh and the mods got shat on by everyone on the board for doing it. its like you werent even on /int/ for the sydney seige
>a board that is meant for people to share their cultures
Been posting here daily for half a decade and /int/ has never been this during that time
This is the eurocentric board where third world brown girls used to come to get western white boyfriends not the everyone hold hands and discuss different street shitting tecniques of our homelands faggot club
Mods have abandoned us and Hiroshima let this happen on his watch.
I want moot back.
/his/ was created so 90% of the serious threads that used to be on here are now made there. The only serious threads are about languages and cuisine now but they are very rare and get overflowed by shitposting (which, with an opposing trending to serious threads, has increased drastically)
Still a better board than /tv/ tho
I was. I'm saying its shit that people shat on them for it. Same thing with MH17. But it used to just be huge events. Now it's news posts on a daily basis all over the frontpage.
If you don't think the quality has changed you're either retarded or not as old as you say. And get boyfriends? More like steal their money and leave them stranded like that Dutch guy.
The quality has always been low with rare moments of brilliance, just like every other 4chan board
The only thing that has really changed is the addition of flags and how fast the board is now
>I was. I'm saying its shit that people shat on them for it.
> I'm saying its shit that people shat on them for it.
why. it was a stupid thing to do. these events were international crisis and were broadcast around the world
It's not better this way though. I've been on /int/ for a long time and even the time where the janitor essentially blocked every Israeli post was waay better than the condition /int/ is in now.
Lawless /int/ is way better than moderated /int/
And there is nothing with news stories being posted here.
If anything /pol/ has become more like /int/ than the other way round and we shouldn't accept gook moot and his goons trying to force a purpose onto a board that doesn't need one other than being a bunch of people from different countries anonymously discussing things
Fun fact: in my autistic wanderings around the mod IRC logs, I discovered the old mod got fired over his incapability to stop banning. He kept trying to contact the other janitors afterwards and Moot told them to not respond.
He also kept banning Chubak, which was just inexcusable.
>Lawless /int/ is way better than moderated /int/
I'm pretty sure you are the only one with this opinion
>If anything /pol/ has become more like /int/
>they have flags their just like us now
I read it literally over a year ago, when that dump of IRC logs happened. It's still on my computer, god knows where.
If you have it, you can search through for the keywords. His name changed at one point but it's clearly the same guy.
Even the other janitors were clearly uncomfortable with his aggressive banning. They told him to chill on at least one occasion.
/pol/ was the shit american board where people talked about american politics and how awful black people are and really had no reason to add flags
Now they're using the /pol/ flags as an excuse to make stupid rules on /int/ like no news stories or whatever
If you had been here in 2012 when the whole board was completely purged multiple times since the autistic mods didn't like what posters were discussing you'd understand but since you're new as fuck you don't
Just trust me guy, I know better
>/pol/ was the shit american board where people talked about american politics and how awful black people are and really had no reason to add flags
>Now they're using the /pol/ flags as an excuse to make stupid rules on /int/ like no news stories or whatever
No clue what you are trying to say here, before you said /pol/ is becoming more like /int/ (and Tbqh I dont remember "Conservative BTFO!" and "Trump2016!" being posted here on /int/) and now you are rambling about flags?
Well what's the point of making a post based on persuading people if you don't care to actually persuade them? You're not going to make anyone believe you if you don't make the effort to do so.
/mu/ has gone shit though. It's a shadow of its former self.
I didn't like it so much when it was mostly threads about indie rock but at least that was better when all threads are about meme rap and pop.
I first started posting on /int/ in 2013 and I was banned all the time, I deserved it and the quality of the board reflected the the work the mods took into to keeping it /b/ free. Cancer like I was back in the day has to be kept out or taught a lesson
>They've made /pol/ more like /int/
Just because it has flags doesnt make it anything like /int/, there is hardly any international discussion or b8 on /pol/ its all b8 to piss of conservatives, /b/ tier moral questions and donald trump circle jerking
>are now adding new rules and regulations to /int/ to make it less like /pol/
Really like what? I'm not seeing any regulation on this board?
So let's ignore global rules because a kiwi wants it and make /int/ a special snowflake board like /b/ because hey you're a super smart guy that said so?
Yes because that's what made this board good not arbitrary rules created to protect the feelings of reddit posting darkie scum like you
You came here for a reason and it wasn't because the moderation was so good and kept a nice safe space for you to discuss belgian bird watching with rainbow smorgasboard of multiculltural friends from all over the world
I honestly think /trv/ might me more up your alley
>I want the basic fucking rules for this site to be enforced on /int/ like every other blue board
Fuck off back to /b/
It doesn't matter what you think is good and what isn't. This is a blue board and it isn't /b/, so it should be treated like it's fucking meant to be. If you want to whine on /qa/ about /int/ being made into a red board or some special /b/ with flags then fine, don't bitch about it to others. I just want the people that run this place to do their fucking jobs instead of shitting the bed while sleeping. Or at least have the decency to change the rules or make an announcement.
Go back to /b/. I know that's where you came from.
If you want strict moderation you can fuck off to /a/ anytime
Nope, redditors want the opposite so every board here can become there personal version of /b/ so they can come here to vent and post "EPIC 4CHAN MAYMAY's XD" and not give a shit about the quality of the boards
fuck off idiot
if you actually checked the /b/ catalog, you'd see that /int/ is NOTHING like /b/
nice quads though
no, redditors want censorship -- that's the whole fucking point of reddit
Why not make high quality posts yourself instead of shitting up the board with whiny meta threads calling for mods to solve all your problems for you?
Just ignore or hide the posts and threads you don't care about and reply to the ones you do like everyone who isn't a complete poofter does
>I have to hide every single scat, dick, and gore thread because an Aussie said so when there are already people that hold that responsibility to moderate
>the Australians and little Australia are the only ones arguing for no moderation
Purely coincidental and in no way an indication that they are the shitposters ruining the board.
this in addition to thirsty waifufags from /r9k/ and /b/. Even generals are better than the same goddamn threads spammed with the same pics of the same Instagram models 37 times an hour.
All the boards are literally /b/
Everyone started with /b/ and eventually moved on to the other boards where the memes developed a little differently and the atmosphere diverged but it's all still /b/
>reddits ruining the site
>if someone says something I don't like its reddit
I have literally never posted reddit and have only browsed it on the rare occasion that its the only relevant result to a google search
You are a faggot, you need to kill yourself. Reddit is not the problem, whoever here crossboards 4chan and reddit is vastly less annoying than the people who constantly complain about the reddit boogyman
>pls bring in more ppl to control our speech
>WTF HOW IS THAT NOT AMERICAN, I HAVE YOU KNOW I EAT 500 HAMBURGERS EVERY DAY!
Seppo cunts don't even know what they want anymore. I feel so FREE right now.
>tfw you helped engineer the shittening of this board by bringing in /b/ and /pol/tards
But free speech is controlled. You can't shout fire in theater without legal ramifications.
All things are in moderation.
Our forefathers sought to provide natural God given freedoms through the state, knowing the state cannot do so perfectly. But they tried anyways and they provided more freedoms than current and former governments at the time.
> haven't been on /b/ in several years
>didn't say you've never been there and implied you have been there in your early years
Shacking my head to be honest family. You're still /b/ tier.
The tears of the nerds that want """"""""""""""serious discussions"""""""""""""""""" make me laugh.
It's the reason why /lat/ exists. Merely to piss off those autists that believe that they hold some kind of high ground.
Get over yourselves, faggots
I'm not sure I'd say /b/. The sense I get is more /pol/. /int/ is basically /pol/ without the conspiracy theories.
It's funny, but that is basically what it is and it could do with a bit of moderation. Not much, just enough for it to not literally be /pol/.
Yes, I remember an italian anon complaining he wasnt chosen and how the process is fucked or whatever but I have no clue what the change in moderation meant for us, seems to have gotten worse imo
Have you guys visited /r/4chan by chance? If not then try it, because it's the most pathetic fucking thing I've ever witnessed.
They stylized their website to look like ours, then the comments are people trying extremely hard to act like us. Better there then here but still, jesus christ.
Because you're a shitposting /b/tard and get mad when other places aren't despite never being such in previous history. You autistically come to a place and try to change it to your taste instead of the other way around. You operate like a stubborn simple minded child incapable of compromise and working in the gray, as in you tend to work in the black and white.
This entire argument has been me wanting the rule of law to be applied while you want the rule to suddenly be taken down and a new one applied to your liking, like a radical or a terrorist only thinking to your own aims without thinking of others.
You'll hide behind some notion that that makes me a soft cunt while you're some tough man that can handle all forms of shit without ever getting tired of it or caring of others. You're a shitposter that wants this place to suit a shitposter like you. You don't care about the existing rules. You live in some fantasy of what you want and not of how it is.
You're stupid dumb /b/tard scum.
Moderation doesn't work here. Every time you have mods for NSFW content they end up finding a way to ban something else. Then the entire board is derailed by *unzips paycheck* with anti mod spam until they give up
