Lets be honest. At this point: what is 4chan?
It's never actually been a meme website we just credit ourselves for everything, idiots pretend that 4chan is some kind of meme-factory which is bs.
It's not really much of a discussion website either though, /v/ /a/ /tv/ /b/ and the bigger boards lack in content the most.
I don't really understand the point of this website anymore. I only come here to be a faggot and see how people react as well as be amused by my low standards in terms of humor.
What is the site to you and why do you come here ?
What it used to be: a website where computer-literate nerds came to discuss their hobbies and exchange brutally honest critique.
What it is now: it's still a place to discuss hobbies except all of the people who contributed good content have left.
>a website where computer-literate nerds came to discuss their hobbies and exchange brutally honest critique.
It was literally never like this. Never at one point in the history of 4chan.
I come here to talk about stuff. The board I go to has much more variety than other sites for similar topics, and most of it is decent discussion. Everyone being anonymous means we kind of start over from scratch every now and then, but that also leads to better consensus, since only decent ("Good" might be too strong of a word, in a lot of cases) ideas actually filter through to later threads.
Other boards also exist, but I don't care about them either way.
Give me a form of contact and I'll help you stay off 4chan by keeping you company all the time.
(/qa/ has no set rules so there's nothing that says I can't do /soc/ content here fuck off guys I know I know)
You're right about the discussion part. Even on /a/ I come on to see what people think of the latest episode of whateverthefuck and it's just post after post of "hurdur is best girl". Is it always there but it seems to be driving out actual discussion now. It's disappointing.
And when someone makes a thread discussion anime as a medium then they're shat on by the memers who think everything on this site should be shitposting and low quality jokes.

Stop making threads for big popular anime then. This is going to happen in general, but if its popular or of a certain nature like yuri or something, its going to intensify.

Meta industry discussion shouldn't be allowed to start as threads as this shit is horrible and the people who actively partake in this discussion are always stupid retards who talk about of their arse.
I did say it happens in general. Stop going into threads for shit shows, harems or shit threads. Its in every thread but the threads I go into never have it consuming the entire thing unless that show is consumed by stupid generalfags
Image boards are just text discussion boards with the ability to append an image to your post, for explanatory powers. People like you who use images as a substitute for a lack of ability to communicate like an intelligent human being are part of the reason why the site has become a big mish-mash of shitposting and normalfaggotry.
We have boards specifically for imagedumping- all other boards are for discussion. This is something which seems people have either forgot or the people who are capable of using words to express their individual thoughts are in the extreme far and few in between.
