>create a thread on /v/ about favorite video game characters
>mods randomly delete it after an hour or so with no explanation
What the fuck? What the hell can we discuss on that board if not video games?
Why should it be a crime to like a particular game on /v/? Shouldn't the mods be doing something about the people who shitpost every time Undertale is mentioned, instead of deleting harmless threads?
You'd make my day if you could explain to me the mentality of someone who makes threads like that knowing they'll get shat on, while hiding behind the "it's video games" excuse.
What do you gain? It's a very low tier form of rebellion/trolling.
>Shouldn't the mods be doing something about the people who shitpost every time Undertale is mentioned
They did, by deleting the thread. Its hard to shitpost in a thread if the thread is no longer there.
>instead of deleting harmless threads
You just admitted there was shitposting in the thread. How can a thread be harmless if it contains shitposting?
Notice that they deleted it AN HOUR after it was created. If they had something against the OP, they would have deleted it immediately.
So what you're saying is that occasionally the mods delete a thread that doesn't actually break any rules simply because the discussion is unsalvageable? I suppose it's logical enough, but it's frustrating to know that the shitposters are allowed to run free.
This is pretty true. Because of /v/'s community having gotten to be so stupid, you can create a thread saying Sans is your favorite character, go play some other video game for a few hours, and come back to a thread with 200 posts. Even for people who genuinely like the game it's hard to resist the allure of making so many people so angry so easily. Not like their minds were ever going to be changed if posts on an anonymous imageboard are enough to fuel their hatred of a single player game.

Which is more frustrating: Getting your thread deleted after an hour, or getting banned for 48 hours for a mod considering your post a shitpost?
The other option isn't even that effective, since a professional troll can just reset his router. So, only the accidental shitposters actually have to sit through the ban.
I created another thread about favorite video game characters and snuck Sans in there and the thread has been surprisingly civil thus far. So I guess it's possible to mention Undertale and not cause numerous mental breakdowns.
I think people on /v/ are just triggered by Undertale art. If you don't post it they're unlikely to even notice the thread. Well, that's fine. Posting Undertale art is what /qa/ is for.
I want to stop Asriel in the middle of his monologue and just wrap my arms around him and pull him into an embrace. At first he'd just kind of be shocked and not say anything, then he'd make some snide comment while shaking his head and grabbing my arms to push me away but I don't let go. I hug him tighter and I bury my face in his neck fluff and just sit there silently. He starts to get angry at me not taking this whole thing seriously, and how I'm being such an idiot. I still don't say anything and he starts shouting right into my ear and digs his claws into my arms. But I don't let go. And after a while he relents and wraps his arms around me and tears form in his eyes and he says he's sorry. Then he says "Don't you have anything better to do?"
And I tell him no, I really don't.
What's with this new trend of getting banned or having your thread deleted and then coming to /qa/ to whine about it even more?
You know why your thread was deleted. Don't even try to pretend like you're clueless.
Because the board is being treated as /q/2.0. Not sure why people think mods give a shit about complaints posted here as they have no obligation to reply to threads like they did on /q/.
It's funny that you think people come here expecting a mod response. They just want to annoy the easily triggered community that will sit down and debate with you for weeks in the mods' stead.
