>>7659717 I took a ~2 month hiatus after browsing /lit/ religiously and I'm baffled as to what happened. It just feels so dead and boring now. Did a bunch of people move to /his/? Do you have insight on why you think it 'died'?
>>7659722 Our top 100 booklist made the front page on imgur. People from /r/books are here now. I've actually seen these fucks say they post more seriously on reddit and meme here. That said, /lit/ was already a shadow of its former self.
>>7659750 Never good, but I'd say that even a year ago /lit/ wouldn't have stood for the science-fiction/fantasy general or whatever it's called. I did notice a general trend of more people sincerely posting "if i like it it's as good as what you like" type sentiments ever since that infamous Katie-bullshit.
This place is still fairly hostile towards newfaggotry but nowhere near enough.
The sci-fi fantasy general was alive and well a year ago IIRC. To be honest I have always been surprised by the fact that the board tolerates it, it's like an embassy for plebs. I suppose its comparable to the 'generals' of Game of Thrones or Dr Who on /tv/ wherein everyone on the board hates them but they keep to themselves.
>>7659763 The more /lit/ sci-fi (things like Dick and Asimov) had had some kind of discussion since pretty much the inception of the board. At times it got the >genre fiction treatment but it was accepted as sufficiently /lit/ to not get bullied of the board. It's not too suprising then that other sci-fi gets tolerated in a general, it's been here forever.
