Hi, /lit/, I know this will go under appreciated. But I would just like to say that I love this board and those posters that take their time to contribute to threads. This is the only board that doesn't make me depressed or gives me the vague sense that something very wrong is going on. It has also opened my eyes to how much there is yet to experience, and that makes me happy about the future. Thanks faggots.
At least when people say, "/fit/ never change" they are being serious. /fit/ never changes, it just gets less relevant the more you lift.
/ck/, /gif/, and /vg/ also are pleasingly static
Call it a meme, but i have been here way too long.
In the past couple years (and after the leddit invasion) the variety of books discussed went to shit. There was a thread dedicated to non-meme books/books never discussed here the other day, and many of them were lesser memes from ca. 2011 that had just been forgotten. They were never replaced, we just discuss less and post more /soc/-tier threads. Those threads aren't that annoying because of how particular our interests etc. still tend to be, but there seems to be more with each passing month.
I do, but it was better to have it posted nice and clean for me, and the discourse and recommendations and requests guided the flow.
The level of discussion is roughly that of early 2000s history channel. There is no scholarly consideration, and copy pasting wiki leaks is considered sources. No one is reading, and everyone is shouting over each other with their uneducated opinions.
Different anon but I agree. It feels that threads are about random kings of some irrelevant land from 5,000 B.C., with all the religious debate threads along with unironic we Wuz kangz type stuff.
Everyone finding Stoner and actually reading it around the same time was something special. Now anytime it gets discussed everyone is rustled about some feminist critic struggling to stay relevant for shitting on the book, and a bunch of frog posting about

I can imagine what it would be like if Hunger became meme-tier again.

>"quote" what did he mean by this?
Why did /his/ have to take all the other humanities? /lit/ feels pretty barren when they get all the peripheral philosophy, religion linguistics (off of just a cursory view of active stuff there) etc. /lit/ is now streamlined but I feel like it's at the expense of traffic because we move a lot slower than we used to.
>At least when people say, "/fit/ never change" they are being serious. /fit/ never changes, it just gets less relevant the more you lift.
Yeah I stopped browsing /fit/ a year ago when it became 95% supermong shitposting. Sometimes I stop in for /owg/ threads.
As for /lit/ it's great because, like OP mentioned, it's one of the few boards where your psyche isn't being eroded by cuck threads, or traps, or body dysmorphia. It's reason I pretty much only browse /lit/ now.
Also, I think the more you browse/lit/ the more likely you are to read. The more you read the more you can contribute to the board without shitposting. There are always new meme books dedicated readers shill enough to get others to read and perpetuate the meme. Its like a big organic bookclub where you don't decide the next book, the memes do. I like it.
A good thing about /sci/ is that there are fairly many (5?) guys who know something about formal logic and modern developments in that field.
It's a little odd that this kind of crystallized as the only topic with higher level knowledge in the last 3 years there - but maybe I'm just biased
I think what saves /lit/ is the occasional community project and the feedback threads. From what I've seen the quality in the feedback threads is decent and respectful, while it isn't fantastic OC, there are still people producing OC.
