Please consider making /r9k/ a work safe blue board.
The quality of the board has improved slightly since the robot filter was brought back, however more work needs to be done to fix it and make and allow it to serve it's intended purpose, and not just function as another typical random/off-topic board.
Switching the board to blue board will cut back on poor quality posts. There's also really no need to post porn on /r9k/ since there are already plenty of other boards that currently exist for that purpose. The potential new content will also remain unaffected since images are not filtered by the robot.
There's plenty of potential upside and no downside by implementing this change.
Thank you for your consideration.
The first two you listed would be resolved by making it a blue board.
The Rate Me threads should already be bannable if I am understanding the rules correctly, and should be contained on /soc/.
>and allow it to serve it's intended purpose, and not just function as another typical random/off-topic board.
It's intended purpose is being a random board with the robot filter applied, you fucking moron
Yes, the robot filter is meant to prevent people from saying the same thing and be creative. That's exactly what's happening on happening on /r9k/. They aren't technically saying the same thing, but they are creatively getting past the filter to do the same as always
/r9k/ was a experiment and its a failed experiment at that. The robot is too flawed to work on its own. The board was meant to just be a /b/ with the robot and that's exactly what it is.
This is actually a good idea, and is certainly better than just having a shitty filter that a literal retard could pass. Too bad it probably won't happen because no one gives a shit about /r9k/ anymore.
No, it wouldn't. Because you couldn't discuss all issues like you can now. If you want a blue /b/ = random SFW discussions, then you should apply for a new board and not destroying an old one.
The less mod intervention the better. A blue /b/ is something completely different than a high quality /b/, which is what /r9k/ is now.
What's the score with wage cuck boy and britfeel?
I can only assume they've evaded countless bans, and so now the focus is just on containment.
I don't really want to share a board with people like that.
>What? Blue boards can have the same discussion as red boards, it only limits image posting
You're downplaying the issue. By making it SFW you introduce mods and limit free discussion. For example you couldn't discuss sexuality related topics.
>Reddit fag projecting himself onto /r9k/ and feelfags
>e-e-everything I don't like is reddit
No. Fuck you. Do not even dare play that card on someone who has been both here and on the internet significantly longer than you have. I remember a time where nobody on 4chan gave a fucking shit about "feels". Nobody cared whether you had something to fuck or not. Ever since that shit has come creeping in, 4chan in general and especially /r9k/ has been about being the specialest snowflake, sort of like an oppression olympics for white boys, and ever since that happened the site went down the fucking drain. This cancer needs to be exterminated by all means necessary, even if that means having to ask the faggot mods for help. To quote another cancer: get off my board re.
What? How do you think /lgbt/ functions as a blue board then? And it's not like there isn't plenty of discussion about porn and sex on /a/ and probably other blue boards as well, as long as it remains on topic (which wouldn't be a problem for /r9k/)
No, the website is 18+ because a lot of boards are purely for porn, therefore it's legally required to have this 18+ restriction in place. Since blue boards are still on the same domain, they legally receive this same restriction, but it's the website owner's choice whether they want to make certain non porn areas on the website safe for work or not.
They do. Every 18+ subreddit has its own "you have to be 18 to view this subreddit" message.
Yes, it could be possible to implement that on 4chan as well, but there are likely reason why they haven't done that before, mainly because noone actually wants underaged children here.
I can, because /r9k/'s awful userbase actually managed to force a board subject through on a subjectless one, which is basically a gender related version of /pol/.
You can very much compare this to every other board.
>which is basically a gender related version of /pol/.
No, it's not. You can discuss any topic you like on /r9k/. Since there are already a lot of other, topic specific boards on 4chan, /r9k/ is as it is.
If you want a general SFW board, go to /int/
Officially? Of course you can, but the combination of a userbase.
Have you ever been to /r9k/ lately? As it is right now, it's nothing but a breeding pit for heavily autistic NEETs posting as much sexism as humanly possible, similar to how /pol/ just loves to post as much antisemitism as possible. This is where I make my comparison.
Now, in theory, as you said, it is indeed possible to post absolutely anything bar total shitposts as defined by the global rules, but the recent issue on /r9k/ is an apparent janitor (or mod) who seems to one of said gender-/pol/s, happily deleting anything that suits a Redditor MRA mindset. And as long as this demographic continues to dominate /r9k/ along with that sympathetic mod, you can't treat /r9k/ as a random board.
Why do you spend all of your time on a board that you hate, doi? 40 pages of text since november 2015.
Here's an example. Notice the rampart shitposting throughout the thread. These posters are in every single one thread like this. Haven't even seen a single one of them get banned, either, not in realtime nor on the bans page.
Videogames. Animals and nature. You know, basically everything that doesn't have anything to do with international culture.
It's a hobby.
>Here's an example.
It's a bad example, there are many many fembot feels: http://desustorage.org/r9k/search/text/Fembot%20Feels%20/type/op/
I don't know why that thread was deleted, maybe it was an accident or spam.
Every board needs to be a red board, with gore, vile porn, etc. being accepted. Maybe then the tumblr/reddit retards will fuck off if you're allowed to post shit that triggers them without being banned for 3 days.
Notice how it's all the blue boards like /v/, /co/, /a/ that attract the "safe space" faggots?
>Notice how it's all the blue boards like /v/, /co/, /a/ that attract the "safe space" faggots?
This. Feminists and other filth can only survive when deviating opinions are deleted and banned.
I don't think porn actually qualify as "opinion".
Incidentally, degree of irony of accusing your opponent of being unable to function without censorship while you want to scare them off by obscene content is through the roof.
Personally, I don't care for porn one way or another. Although, I find it pointless outside designated zones, since I can't comfortably masturbate in the middle of a discussion.
That wasn't what my post is about.
This is ridiculous.
>The quality of the board has improved slightly since the robot filter was brought back
No, it hasn't. /r9k/ is identical, except now everyone's a tad more annoyed about random mutes. Plus /r9k/ is a nice enough board, I love it, my homeboard, but the only shitposts are the antifembot posts.
> There's also really no need to post porn on /r9k/
Let people post whatever they like as long as it's related to the topic. making the board blue just hinders that.
>There's plenty of potential upside and no downside by implementing this change.
most of the board spurging out because something unnecessary was done to further filter an already okay board is an upside?
I've never even seen the issue with this. If they aren't treating us like shit and want to be in the community why don't we cherish that, we're betas having people who are actually interested in integrating with us.
>no, /r9k/ is a board for depression/loneliness/feels
it's my homeboard anon, I know what it became, I'm stating it's original goal, to promote original content. I love the frogs and feels tavern more than anyone, but making r9k a blue board would get rid of a lot of the trash.
If you want a place where no one will call you a nigger, go anywhere else. Go on social media where some people will be scared to do it because it's tied to their identity. Go on some forum or subreddit where you'll be banned for doing it or for saying anything non-PC. The great part about 4chan is that you don't have to worry about that.
Femtards are free to post on 4chan and try to turn it into another pussified safe space but no one has to make it easy for them. Gore and an atmosphere where porn is all over the place keeps the weaker ones from staying around too long or festering.
[spoiler] I'm one of the original bartenders, I've probably heard your stuff [spoiler]
I think that /r9k/ isn't even that bad. After i got out of the inevitable /b/ phase every 4channer goes through I learned to ignore shiposts
I don't post in /qa/ often, didn't know there weren't spoilers
also the general name of someone who uses 4chan WITHOUT mentioning a specific board is 4channer. It's been like that for years.
I don't care about niggers. You are the one who fantacize how you drive everyone who disagree with you so they won't be able to turn anything into safe space with censorship. It's hilarious.
voice your opinion
>You are the one who fantacize how you drive everyone who disagree with you so they won't be able to turn anything into safe space with censorship.
>not censoring porn is censorship
That's some nice doublethink.
I am 100% in favor of this. It will get rid of all the
>discourage "fembot" attention whore threads
>get rid of faggots using the board for porn dumps
literally only good can come from this
it's trap feels not porn, why would sfw change any of that
Yeah, okay those are shit
why would you want to do this, they're females who like betas, plus sfw wouldnt solve that
doesn't happen often but okay, makes sense
Please DON'T do this! /r9k/ is a haven where people can vent and get their true feelings out, without slogging through all of /b/'s bullshit (who HAS been to /b/ in the last six years, anyway?). It's real, it's raw, it's exactly what it's meant to be. Syphoning the gay stuff to its own board would make sense, but I'm on there all the time and I don't see scat/piss threads. Besides, does no one have the "hide thread" option?
>why would you want to do this, they're females who like betas, plus sfw wouldnt solve that
These women (if you believe they even are women because they arent) don't like betas. they like the attention and discourse they cause. sfw board will stop them from posting nudes and creatin a thread with 400 replies that stays up for 3 days
>it's trap feels not porn, why would sfw change any of that
it's not usually. It's almost always trannies talking about their fetishes like piss, scat, being beaten, etc and then posting their dicks and asses
>Okay, what exactly is it you want to see on r9k that requires to to not be sfw?
Every discussion about things like sexuality, accidents, art, calling women parasites etc.
If you want a blue /b/ then apply for /bb/, don't destroy a functioning NSFW board.
It literally doesn't change r9k except by removing porn and gore. The greentext all stays the same. The only difference is that people don't post shit like "how can you love a woman who had cum on her face" or "cucking is the relationship dynamic of the future".
It would seriously only do good for the world.
Specifically people posting nudes of themselves to garner attention and an instant 400+ reply post
you can still call women parasites on a sfw board.
your LE POST NORMIES GETTING REKT threads are shit because there are only so many of those videos on the web and back when those threads were popular they were just full of rampant reposting and circlejerking like a YLYL thread
Never seen an art thread on r9k besides autistic train and architecture posting. art doesn't have to include naked people
sexuality threads have a 100% rate of devolving into trannies and fags exchanging steams while jacking off, posting anime pictures, and showing off their cocks and anuses
I don't care about porn. I don't like idea of making non-porn themed boards red because porn tend to derail otherwise perfectly good threads, but I'm perfectly happy with porn. I also would like to be able to brouse 4chan when I have gaps in worktime, because I've got nothing better to do between tasks and I'd rather it not be porn.
Your idea is to use porn to scare off people who disagree with you so they don't create "safe spaces". That's hilarious.
>I don't care about porn. I don't like idea of making non-porn themed boards red
So you want /b/ and /pol/ and to be blue boards too? I don't think you understand what this site is.
>porn tend to derail otherwise perfectly good threads
So could any SFW lewd image or anything else to be quite frank with you family.
>I also would like to be able to brouse 4chan when I have gaps in worktime
Find another site or SFW board to browse then, there are countless ones. You're somehow fine with being seen browsing a site like 4chan and all the just borderline SFW stuff you see here at work but not a pair of tits, Just disable images if you really feel it's necessary.
>Your idea is to use porn to scare off people who disagree with you so they don't create "safe spaces".
That's usually what happens if you let everyone in, they start making their own rules to replace those already in place. The point is that it makes the board uninviting to them.
>That's usually what happens if you let everyone in, they start making their own rules to replace those already in place. The point is that it makes the board uninviting to them.
I don't want 4chan to be anyone's hugbox. And it won't be unless moderation bulk.
Your insistence that 4chan should be your hugbox is plain silly.
>Your insistence that 4chan should be your hugbox is plain silly.
So now being allowed to post porn, gore, and whatever you want is "insisting that 4chan should be a hugbox"? You're a fucking idiot.
Scaring off tumblr is just a nice side-effect of being allowed to post whatever you want because these people can't handle that. People don't post porn for that purpose. Seriously what is so hard to get about this? Find another board if you don't want to see porn.
>I do not consider porn an opinion
Fuck off. SFW is much more than just forbidding porn. Porn is forbidden on /pol/ and yet it's a NSFW board.
SFW includes everything, from calling women "cunts" and blacks "niggers", to posting modern art and talking about sexbots.
I've experienced it myself as well, but almost every thread regarding females seems to get deleted during US time evening. The people posting them actually haven't ever gotten banned or warned for them, and I've had multiple of my own threads like it deleted. This is probably to avoid any real outrage among posters, and thus avoid being noticed by other staff members. I very much doubt a lot of them ever even go to /r9k/ because of how shit it is. That's why I think it's, in fact, a rogue staff member abusing his powers to promote his interest.
This was before a time when the internet wasn't overrun with the most immature possible 12 year olds. Back then, they just sticked to things like neopets and flash game websites.
Ban the beta fucks, then.
For some reason, moot kept clearing the bot's database. Doing that just once basically canceled out months or years of building up said database. There was little point to having it the first time it was cleared.
You Redditors love this buzzword, don't you.
There have never been a single fembot who ever asked for a boyfriend on /r9k/, bar one months ago. The beta fucks give any woman attention if she even so much as accidentally implies her gender in a greentext story.
This is a betafuck problem, not a female problem.
>You Redditors love this buzzword, don't you.
Calling out buzzword use while calling me a redditor? You have to be a troll.
Besides it not a buzzword you are a white knight.
>known female tripfag mystery.jpg attention whores and derails thread while talking about her bf
>you show up to defend her against everybody telling her to fuck off
W H I T E K N I G H T
>There have never been a single fembot who ever asked for a boyfriend on /r9k/, bar one months ago.
I remain convinced you're simply a dedicated troll. Either way you're obnoxious.
I don't defend mystery. I just attack the manbabies who throw tantrums at the very sight of mystery. I don't even like mystery.
If you want to get very specific? Possibly. The fact remains that calling it a frequent issue is just false. There's rarely begging for boyfriends aside from fuckboys from Steam.
>implying practice girlfriend is anything but a meme
>calls everybody buzzwords, whines about when he is called buzzwords
>literally stands up for any female poster
The quality would improve a lot if /r9k/ was made the virgin board.
Nowadays /r9k/ has two different cultures. The virgin robots and the people who treat it as /s4s/ who for some reason refuse to use /s4s/ instead.
Ban everyone who admits to being a non-virgin.
>which is basically a gender related version of /pol/.
What are you on? That's not even close to majority of the content on /r9k/. Sure, a few vermin from /pol/ manage to escape and post on other boards such as /r9k/, but you can't define /r9k/ by it.
