Why don't we have /cog/ by now?
It worked fantastically with /v/ and /vg/. It would clear generals and generals-in-disguise out of /co/, and remove the problem of moderators singling out generals that they don't like for discontinuation during show hiatuses.
I'd like a number of the faster boards to get general boards, like /ag/. Not only would it move the generals away from the "WAAAH I HATE GENERALS" shitposters but it would also give us a higher bump limit on our generals. Less of a pain.
Why? General boards serve to contain generals, and people enjoy the community provided by generals.
What purpose is there to shitting on other people's fun if that fun doesn't affect you?
>moot used to talk about how he hated generals and wanted to ban them
>he never did and it's gotten to the point where a sizable amount of boards are 30% generals
Thanks, moot. Sure love all these eternal, insular little circlejerks littered across the site that was intended to have transient discussions.
Then maybe you fags should go back to your traditional forums were you came from. That's all generals are. No one cares if you enjoy your 'fun' circlejerks that are just image dumping, waifu faggotry and rping. All you guys do is shit up the site and kill everyone elses fun who actually care about the site.
Congrats anon, you've used the 4chan thread system the way its intended. If your question is shit, the thread will die, otherwise it'll thrive and create some form of discussion even if that discussion is completely different to the original context of the OP
How many generals are made in /co/ anyway?
I doubt they are as many as /v/ used to have
Why have a board just for a couple threads?
Why make a board for generals either way?
/vg/ and /mlp/ were a mistake.
Just let shit be contained on their specific topic board
Pushing something under the rug won't change the fact its under the rug and growing and spreading. /vg/ didn't remove generals from /v/, it only removed the ones in name and it only caused general culture on the rest of the site to grow. Generals are just glorified chatrooms, go fuck off somewhere else for that shit.
Same reason there isn't an /ag/ - Anime General board, the issue comes from people being butthurt that shows they don't prefer appear on the board. Get over it, your personal taste isn't relevant.
>/mlp/ still exists
It's one fucking cartoon, the only reason it was so widespread was because /b/tards saw how much it made everyone shit their pants and moot caved instead of just waiting until those diaper users got bored of spamming.
regarding /sug/ i don't know why they got baned but i think they said they were allowed to keep the general if they kept it in one place and then they turned there back on it and banned them anyway.
probably explains why this thread was put up in the first place if true.
I'm not very up to date on the inner turmoil of that board, I just know that a split would just be ridiculous.
>that festering cesspool known as the /rwbyg/ continue willy nilly?
/a/ doesn't accept content by American studios. Chalk it up to retarded board culture, chalk it up to autism, whatever you want, but it's how it is. Because of this, the only logical place for rwbyg to go is /co/. It's a weird grey area but what else do you want? A split wouldn't be any more logical because you're still basically saying that rwbyg is a cartoon, which means it should be allowed in /co/ to begin with.
People might take you more seriously if you learned to convey your thoughts without using memes.
Different anon but im a bit more educated on the matter.
The issue as hand for the most part is that /co/ Mods are showing blantant bais. its just how it is for the most part. They ban /sug/ for being on hiatus but allow /rbwyg/ to continue to have daily bi hourly threads, its a hypocracy that grates on the members who partake in /sug/. Even more so considering rwby has been on hiatus indeffinitly for almost 2 years.
This entire thread is probably built from a buttmad /sug/ user but its not entirly without reason so it seems. get rid of all the generals or let people talk about what they wana talk about.
Im guessing thats why this thread was made in the first place so the people who wana talk about a cartoon/comic on end have a place to do so where they won't have to deal with the rest of the boards bitching.
I actually found out about SU recently, ended up liking it, made a thread on /co/ to see whatever others thought (I don't visit often) and it was instantly deleted.
I mean, on /a/ we're known to unreasonably hate certain anime & manga but we won't shitfling to the point of getting perfectly on-topic content banned. I'm assuming that's what happened with SU and /co/. It was never properly explained to me but from my perspective it makes zero sense. It's a cartoon, /co/ is a cartoon board, so what is the problem?
Your correct there should be no problem. Its the Mods in /co/ SU boards are the fastest moving and are about 30% of all the posts per day in /co/ SU threads on regular make it to page 10 with over 700+ posts. I can only imagine they look for anychance they can to ban it so they have less work.
>It's a cartoon, /co/ is a cartoon board, so what is the problem?
From what I seen:
- /v/ got upset that people spammed it on there boards
- it's the closest thing to being "the new MLP" on /co/
- It's associated with the Tumblr/SJW menace that threatens all of the 4chan boards that are associated with Reddit
I just don't like the 24/7 generals and I feel that they don't need to be on 4chan if they can go through a thread in less than 2 hours regularly on a slow board as /co/. Do they even talk about the show in there or is it all fandom bullshit?
>Tumblr/SJW menace that threatens all of the 4chan boards
Isn't that giving them too much credit?
>Do they even talk about the show in there or is it all fandom bullshit?
They're just circlejerks where tripfags talk amongst themselves and they share in-jokes. Generals are, and always will be shit.
>I mean, on /a/ we're known to unreasonably hate certain anime & manga but we won't shitfling to the point of getting perfectly on-topic content banned.
Actually, I believe this is the case for Naruto? Which I think is pretty stupid even though I don't like Naruto and wouldn't go to any of the threads. Absolutely no reason to forbid discussion of a particular series.
>Absolutely no reason to forbid discussion of a particular series
It's because in its prime, it was the most normalfag and entry level series and allowing discussion of it was the same as welcoming the stupid fucking retards every other anime forum is full of
It's literally waifu fags over and over and over and over.
I don't care that they talk about Steven Universe; I enjoy that show and I participate in the discussions. But when you don't have a real topic to talk about it just becomes disgustingly repetitive. Go look at /vg/, it's just the same memes posted over and over and over.
General threads are essentially subforums. That's all they are and they're too incestuous.
>but probably should be on /trash/ due to the amount of porn/fetish shit the fandom want to post about their shows.
/sug/ is gone by the way. I can tell by the fact that there is a Steve Universe thread that has been up for more than 3 hours but has less than 100 posts. A /sug/ thread would be already nearing 600 posts.
You stupid? Those fuckers aren't gone, it's just nobody wants to go to fucking /trash/. With good reason, that board was meant for mods to push off topic threads to but that hasn't fucking happened.
Once hiatus ends they're going back to /co/ and it's going to go at the same speed they always do. There's no point to banning them if they're going to come back, it just makes the mods look incompetent when /sug/ comes back filled with spiteful assholes and people who jumped ship from /trash/ on /sug/ with them.
>nobody wants to go to fucking /trash/.
Except for the ones who made a 24/7 general up there since the board's creation. Also why wouldn't you use /trash/? You can post any porn you want outside of loli or shota. You can roleplay to your heart's content. No one outside of 4chan will bug you since it's unlisted. Also with the furfags and ponyfags there, trolls barely notice you.
Yeah it's not so bad if you only go there for /sug/ since you can just go into the thread and not have to worry about the stuff outside of them. But posters from /co/ aren't going to go there because a bunch of furry porn is going to be a barrier for most.
>I'm just saying why others might not like swimming in the garbage to reach (comparatively) gold.
That's 4chan in a nutshell. People here always do that here and if they are not willing to do so than maybe they should leave this place for some SU forum.
>im a bit more educated on the matter
>Even more so considering rwby has been on hiatus indeffinitly for almost 2 years
>doesn't know /rwbyg/ is an RT general too
>doesn't even know RWBY is ongoing right now
You should probably kill yourself right about now.
Nah it's just an overreaction, there are only 4 consistant generals on /co/ and only 2 of them are remembered while the rest are slow and easily forgettable.
Mods already handle the general "issue" on /co/ by not allowing generals for popular shows that are hiatus.
>if that fun doesn't affect you?
If I want to make a topic and get the full swath of the board to respond (like, if I needed a broad spectrum to get the best/most accurate reading on a topic) the only two replies I'll get are people saying "GO TO THE GENERAL" and "STOP SHITTING UP THE BOARD >>general."
If I go in the general I am not "in the clique" and don't want to role-play as a character in a show/game/book/movie/cartoon to get one of the 4 (or maybe 5!) Trips that act as judicators therein to respond to me, and with the constant noise of every reply being shot directly at one of those top-five posters, nobody will respond to my reply. At all. Whatever it might be.
These are not GENERAL THREADS they are SUB BOARDS. The little tripking circle are the "mods" and the focal point. All replies to do one of them or come from one of them. The "community" that would occupy the board proper is now subdivided dozens of times and each "general" becomes a "safe space" for about 14 people, and if you're not in their know, you're not really there. They are antithetical to ephemerality.
Does it affect me? Nah, you're right. It doesn't affect me at all.
>>doesn't know /rwbyg/ is an RT general too
> is an RT general too
RWBYg doesn't even really like RWBY anyway, always going on about how bad it is that or the namefag roleplay that went on a few months back.
>waah mods ban Steven Universe from /co/ because they don't like it
Did you ever considering the cancerous as fuck fanbase that the whole board hates for ruining the entire board being the issue?
Here's a better idea, all generals on /co/ follow the same rules that the Toonami General follows
>during the air time of new content an unlimited amount of generals can be made
It would even be fine if it started a few hours early like the Toonami threads, they have free reign from about 7pm-3am on Saturdays. As long as discussion is vaguely on topic it's ok
>ONE discussion thread during non air time
A little tougher since Toonami is every week year round, they have ONE "general" during the week to discuss ratings. After 500 posts, that's it till Saturday
>all other threads for the show are deleted on sight
It's too late to completely ban generals, but it's not too late to adapt new rules for generals that put a severe dent in shitposting, off topic, etc discussion that happens in them. I don't spend much time in Toonami threads, but they do seem to be somewhat self moderated when people are wasting posts in the weekly thread on off topic bullshit
You forget that /vp/ also exists as the first "one fucking series", though that one had vidya AND a show.
As for OP, I don't like the idea of a /cog/. I've seen the generals of /vg/ and /co/, and they all turn to shit or memeposting hatred, or be the opposite and be a hugbox for tripfags.
I wouldn't call the whole fanbase cancer because they act the same as the older fanbases from before like Adventure Time. Only difference is that SU is still popular right now and thus, to be expected that fans would do with threads on /co/.
