Can janitors and mods give more attention to /vp/?
Almost every other day the board gets raided by frogposting, images of turds, porn dumping of the furry and 3D variety or some other obnoxious thread spam.
It gets even worse than the Goodra spam used to be, and when the janitors finally come and clean up the shitposters just IP switch and carry on as soon as they leave
To add more to it, it also ends with users that do report said posts to either get a warning or banned. Then after which the posts that have been reported get deleted in the end anyway.
I also lurk /m/ from time to time and I'm pretty sure shitposts get reported there, but at the same time nothing actually happens to the shitposts there. It's gotten to the point where shitposters have even gone on to tripfag.
I don't think mods would hate that place considering there's also mecha anime there.
/vp/ is complete and outer shithole. mods and janitors are imbeciles, slower than my down syndrome adopted cousin, and obnoxious underaged shitposters that figured out last week that a going airplane mode gives them immunity to bans. GIB BETTER MODS.
They are very slow and they are mostly ineffectual, it's the sad truth. Especially when it comes to the anime general thread, which is constantly being flooded by a number of highly dedicated career shitposters who want to ruin the thread simply because it's an easy target on a board with piss-poor moderation. I've never seen a general get shitposted so badly before.
I'll reiterate some shit from the other /qa/ thread. Give /vp/ janitors. At least two. Janitors who know the board and especially its most heavily posted threads, such as pokegirl threads, pokeart threads, the anime thread, Showderp, Wifi general, etc.
More importantly, they have to be janitors who will not just delete the shitposting and recommend bans if needed, but also actually stick around to stop the shitposters should they switch their IP and return to shitpost again.
Just cleaning up shitposts and then leaving for five hours doesn't cut it these days when you have kids shitposting from phones and autists who reset their routers. The board needs at least one set of eyes on it at all times. So that means giving /vp/ and other shitposting-plagued boards more, and better, janitors.
People keep saying that they will janitor for free.
What will it take? Even if the mods and jannies hate /vp/, which I'm curious as to why that would be the case, there are people who just want to clean up their board. What would be the problem in that?
What's the best way to contact Hiro? Twitter?
There is good reason to believe that there may be falseflagging at work by people who hate the ashnime and see getting rid of it as an easy task if they can turn the anons of /vp/ against the anime threads altogether and then run to /qa/ to stoke the flames. For the most part, at the start of XY mods and jannies set the anime threads in-line by keeping them to their one thread/general. They have not stepped outside of that for general anime discussion aside from a few threads that were tangent to the anime, such as Ash-Greninja or talking about Tobias and etc... The recent spamming of Anime Generals suggests that someone is trying to falseflag the anime generals by turning /vp/ against them.
How fucking dumb do you have to be to actually fall for the implication it's thread regulars that make 7-10 duplicates of their own threads and flood the catalog, though? They're not thinking that shit through too much.
Honestly, I don't know. It's just gotten bad to the point where people that don't even like the anime see the shitposting that happens and go in to ask why the fuck is it even happening.
That's honestly a good thing. It means people actually realize there's legit shitposter invasions in those threads rather than just fall for the "butthurt anons report opinions they don't like" angle the shitters are trying to push.
I didn't but I regret applying now. Anyway, having someone from the anime general become a janitor would be a disaster. None of those people have neutral judgment, they might be amourshippers and delete every post that speaks badly of their favorite shipping.
It's one of the shitposters trying to falseflag. He's posted more or less that exact post in every /qa/ thread about /vp/.
I think it's the same guy that tries claiming /vp/ doesn't have a shitposting problem and that the moderation is fine there, too
You're replying to the longhairfag, who is himself a shitposter. He's the last person you'd want as a janitor, and his vitriol towards fans of Serena's current appearance and his rants about how "m-muh long haired was ruined by feminist women writers who were imposing short hair degeneracy on the world, and the only thing that matters in a girl is that she is white/rayan and has long hair and good looks" eminently disqualify him from being able to serve impartially as a janitor.
Piss off, longhairfag.
Truth be told, they seem to come at the same time everyday. I mean right now it's being hit by a few of them. At this point I can't tell if it's one or multiple but they always go at it during this time before jumping to spam the rest of /vp/.
It's my analytic view on how to judge women on their value what would make me good for the job. That same skill can be used to keep the thread clean, of course normal anime discussion or people's taste for certain shipping would never qualify for posts to be deleted.
You have an IQ of 77. You are a pariah on even the most pariah of boards. You are a shitposter who seeks to destroy /vp/. The only thing you qualify for is government assisted living.
You are a horrible, horrible person and I pray to God that someone takes away your internet access so that you might find an actual purpose here on Earth.
No but it does affect your morality and your ability to determine right from wrong. You're also horribly off-base from what mainstream /vp/ is like so you are not suitable in that regard.
Also, if you're done with people, why are you on /vp/, a game about doing things with your friends? Are you saying that you've never caught them all?
I'm not in either thread you obnoxious shitposter.
Why do you continue to shitpost on /vp/?
What's you endgame here?
Do you even have one?
I don't get it.
I really don't.
What's your fucking beef with the god damn Pokemon Anime? What can push someone to such levels of autism and sperglordyness to go on a personal crusade against a single thread on /vp/ that you can easily ignore and hide?
What is your fucking problem?
I got warned for reporting that thread but maybe it'll draw mods attention to it.
Its so fucking easy to change your IP its insane. He's a dedicated shitposter and he's not planning on slowing down. You just need to keep deleting any shitpost he makes over and over again
Which only reinforces the point that /vp/ needs more mods and jannies.
There are multiple people who routinely come to /qa/ to request aid and want to clean up /vp/.
We should consider having /vp/ "elect" candidates for janitor positions and possible /vp/-only mods and then submit that to Hiro.
They'll just start using proxies and there will be collateral damage. The only way to beat this dedicated shitposter is the tried and true way: make it such an effort to shitpost and troll that it no longer is any fun. Wherever they turn up, moderators are there to shut them down.
At some point, they will reach a critical juncture where they either go insane over something really stupid and need psychological help (i.e. goodrafag), or they give up.
We need an international coalition of jannies/mods. Amerifats cannot shoulder this alone. We need people for the night hours here in NA.
>We should consider having /vp/ "elect"
Please no, the democratic elections wont result in getting a suitable janitor/mod. There are too many cult heros on /vp/ like Adamant that will get a huge amount of votes while they might be terrible at the job. Hiro should pick someone he elects from the random applications, for mods he has to know them in real life to give them a position of power.
It's worth noting, Adamant has years of experience as a moderator on another Pokemon site. I'm not saying he should also be a mod or janitor on 4chan, but he does have experience and knows how to set aside personal biases in the interest of fairness.
He's not in a cult and he's not a god, and he does take constructive criticism from people in the anime thread, so neither of those is true either literally or metaphorically.
Not him , but the belly thread is a stealth Pokéchub/Pokétummies thread, both of which have been deleted in the past for being furry fetish threads.
The other two are blatant Poképhilia threads and, by extension, violate Global Rule 3 and have been deleted in the past as well.
The worst part is this took an hour to deal with
When it has a naked person as the OP image so is visible from the catalog, when the thread was on the first page of the board
Kinda a testament to how little the board is moderated
The thing is tripcodes were intended for content providers in threads to ensure people weren't pretending to be them, which is largely (not all the time) what Adamant does, provide information about the anime and answer questions.
Sometimes he removes his trip if its not important to the discussion, which is what you are supposed to do with trips
However so many faggots use trips to attention whore (see Brett/Buttscab, one of /vp/'s resident underage shitters) that everyone associates all trips with being attention whores
>The belly thread and Pokephlia thread archived
Brett isn't a problem for me, why should it be a problem for everyone else? I'm not the person who would force anonymous status on a website that, despite what people claim, has a fucking name option right on top of the Quick Reply box for everyone to use however they want to.
One thing that really grinds my gears, enough that I'm coming to /qa/ for the first time, is the favoritism the mods give to the Team Rocket RP thread. Every other RP thread (usually) gets deleted reasonably fast as they should, but ninety-nine percent of the time the Team Rocket RP threads make it to bump limit even though it's the same tripfags freeforming every thread.
If you tell the inhabitants of the thread to make a Skype chat or some other thing you get "muh board culture, we're been here since /tr/, get out newfag"
If you mention the favoritism it gets on /vp/ you get warned and your post is deleted while the thread is still up (not that there isn't a Global Rule against complaining on 4chan but still, the mods are clearly awake if that happens).
I'm almost positive a janitor or mod is one of the tripfags in those threads, that's how much protection it gets.
A new one just got made, I'm almost positive it'll hit bump limit.
Oh wow, /qa/ gets shit done, thanks to whoever came to that thread.
The people that report get warned/banned for abusing the report system. Most of the time they file invalid reports because they disagree with what someone posted instead of reporting shitposting.
The problem is the mods know nothing about cars and don't care to keep track of the posters. He always posts with the same filenames, the same garbage, but they're not *technically* rule-breaking other than rule 3, but you'd have to know something about cars or just pay attention to the board to know he's the shitposter. The images are consistent, the weird-ass filenames are consistent, the blatant shitposting itself is consistent, but they don't seem to pick up on it unless it's a full blown raid like this, but even then it takes complaining to /qa/ to fix it.
> running and crying
> instead of just fixing the problem.
I didn't even see those shitposts, I had that name filtered long before that happened.
>is this your first day on /vp/
Says the anon who doesn't know about the Serena GETs shitposting that /vp/ has become overrun with lately by one passionate "m-muh /tr/ nostalgia" samefagger
>g-g-gets isn't shitposting its allowed!
You will not post any of the following outside of /b/: Trolls, flames, racism, off-topic replies, uncalled for catchphrases, macro image replies, indecipherable text (example: "lol u tk him 2da bar|?"), anthropomorphic ("furry") or grotesque ("guro") images, post number GETs ("dubs"), or loli/shota pornography.
It is the cancer killing /vp/ when one piece of shit keeps doing it and samefags a bunch of replies and even pretends to be other people in the thread, with the sole intent of confusing people, until he ends up derailing threads on /vp/. Multiple times a week at that.
Being underage and being stupid enough to reveal yourself as underage, then being stupid enough to continue using the tripcode that you revealed yourself to be underage with, means you shouldn't be on the site, full stop.
Not to mention he's a gigantic shitposter.
Just look what he did to this thread. It's true that people shouldn't've been taking the bait as hard as they were but the fact that he so blatantly lays it out, while continuing to use the tripcode that proves him as being underage, is just flagrantly wrong.
I really never saw people reply to him. I just see his name and then keep scrolling.
>firefly of the sea
Jesus Christ you're right, he is stupid
I'll say it once more, though you fags will shoot it down like always:
Paid mods with official standards is the answer.
You can deny it all you want but if moderation were outsourced to a company with actual employment standard and 24 hour coverage reports would be addressed promptly and we could get rid of janitors too.
I was just making a joke by calling you Valve for advocating paid mods, it wasn't shitposting.
That being said, I don't think 4chan makes enough of a profit to afford mods, and I don't want to suddenly have to pay a subscription fee to yell about video games and anime.
The shitposter depicted in that screencap keeps getting banned for spamming/flooding/Getsposting, but he always insta-ban evades and now he's back in the anime thread shitposting more of the same Gets screen caps, pretending to be other people, samefagging like crazy, and more generally trying to fuck with people. Moderator assistance would be great about now.
The janitors were spot-on with their most recent deletion of shitposting in the anime thread. >>419597 was right on the money, as virtually all those posts were in fact samefags by one autist who is obsessed with derailing Pokemon anime threads via Serena GET posting and samefaggotry and nearly all of them did get deleted. Also the duplicate/troll anime thread was also deleted, and correctly so.
Plus the anon that keeps shitposting the anime thread with "amour is dead" and laughing face memes and "don't trust that poster, he's a spider" memes, and spamming and reposting pokegirl tier charts, and calling everyone there underage, cancer, delusional retards, weeaboo cancer, paranoid fucking idiots, and then links to his own /qa/ threads that he uses to bitch about the very shitposting he is responsible for...all that shit got deleted too. Good work.
I wish the jannies on /vp/ could be just as on the dot in the future, but recently they've just been so inconsistent and slow in recent months.The jannies got it right this time with what they deleted though, I'll give them credit for that.
They probably haven't, I know the "Pokémon are /real/" RP thread keeps appearing even though it's consistently been deleted since the start (except when mods are asleep, and if they make it through a thread without deletion due to it they brag about how the mods are clearly okay with them now even if they start getting deleted again as usual).
>I know the "Pokémon are /real/" RP thread keeps appearing even though it's consistently been deleted since the start.
The last one was made back on the 15th, so they may have gotten it.
But the TR RP's last thread was yesterday, so we'll have to wait and see.
No, it should just split up in /a/ and /v/ again. When there is no game news there are only a few /v/ or /a/ related generals active. Or maybe have a dedicated Nintendo board so the low quality discussions can stay in a containment zone.
Might as well split /v/ into four groups, Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft/PC, because there's shitposting in any group that makes discussion difficult.
I honestly don't think integrating into /v/ would be the worst thing ever; the only fear I have is a mod deleting /vp/ and then forcing everyone into /vg/. I never want to have to go to /vg/. /v/ already has better Pokémon threads when they aren't filled with furshit or Pokégirl spam. The issue would be when game news does start picking up and suddenly you get the cries of "go to /vg/!"
The Pokegirl threads shouldn´t be on /v/, /a/ or /c/ would be a good place for them. The furry stuff can stay on /b/, and the homo shipping from the anime discussion general can go to /y/ or whatever that gay anime board is.
Does this violate the rules? I think it does for the fetish shit involved but none of the "bully" art is NSFW or especially furry so I don't actually know. The linked fapfics probably are at least.
I don't use those threads, I'm not an RPfag, but those guys are fine. I'm here because I'd noticed the second thread today on the front page, the one that just got deleted, while the one from earlier had not gotten close to bump limit. Then that one was deleted. Why do you think they shouldn't be allowed?
It wouldn't be an issue if mods didn't seem to give them special permission (or used to; ever since I mentioned it here every thread has been deleted rather fast). As I said in my first post in this thread, other RP threads got deleted fast but these would hit bump limits almost all the time, and you could even get warned for reporting them. I was sick of the double standard so I complained, and now the threads have been consistently deleted, so clearly someone here does agree that they don't belong, whether for quality issues (a tripfag-filled freeform RP where it's five guys every thread doesn't exactly belong).
Whether you think it should be there or not, Global Rule 3 is indeed a thing.
Aura Time technically didn't violate any rules other than Global Rule 3 and we nuked that shit instantly. This is less severe than Aura Time but it's a similar principle.
You can't have fun in your RP, so you vet theirs deleted? That's dumb. You should be trying to convince the mods to leave up the Pokemon are real ones, not delete the Rocket ones. Also, you can join theirs. I asked if I could, once, and they said sure. I didn't join, but it shows that it's more than a circle jerk.
We have threads without discussion all the time.
No, I report both threads when I see them.
The difference is, when you report Pokémon are Real, their threads usually get deleted, so they eventually went away peacefully without having to come to /qa/. The reason I felt the need to do so with Team Rocket RP is becaue reporting the threads did nothing whatsoever (usually at least, rarely one actually would be deleted).
And while I'm not completely No Fun Allowed and can enjoy a spontaneous silly thread like the first toystory thread, this is a general that they keep making over, and over, and over.
Where's the issue? You don't like them? You're an ass. These threads are fine and should not be deleted just because you come crying to the mods. I can't prove to you that I'm not one of the guys in those threads, so my word is near meaningless, but this is coming from a guy who's only daily connection with them is through the front page. Those threads are Pokemon related, and should be left on the Pokemon board. The only space they take is that of shitposting threads.
I never entered those threads, I ignored them. If they were work safe and related to Pokemon, then yes. The subject of the thread, however, has me guessing that they were not work safe.
I don't know, though, since I /ignored/ them.
I never entered them. Why did you?
Aura Time was a thread about hypnosis. Someone found a Youtube video about it and made a thread, and people started digging up hypnosis audio that supposedly made you think you were a Pokémon. It was SFW but autistic as hell (and I mean autistic for /vp/, advanced autism). After the first thread they started making more, but by the third thread a bunch of people said "enough, this shit's gone too far, our standards aren't this low" and after a mod deleted the thread there was a big meta thread about whether we were going to let them on the board. A few people from those threads threw a shitfit using the exact same "It's Pokémon so it's allowed, deal with it!" argument and botted a strawpoll to try to make it seem like people wanted it, but it got deleted and they haven't come back.
I'd post archive links but it's from that period archive.moe lost forever.
/vp/ may be a cesspool of shitposting but we have to have some type of standards. We got rid of shit like Aura Time, or the got yer feets shitposts of /tr/, for a reason. We are not [s4s] or /r9k/ or Deviantart under a Pokémon theme, and if we don't remove threads that meet our standards the board may as well be deleted and all of us go back to /a/ or /v/.
Read this thread. Read it, from beginning to end, every single post, make sure you don't skim. Then tell me it's not autistic.
>Implying that I said they weren't
I said that they weren't that autistic. And they aren't. They are not nearly as bad as the hypnosis, and they provide entertainment to those that use them, and only actually bother you, and a few other guys in this thread. Most don't mind. They are Pokemon related, work safe, and do not bother 95% percent of the board. Your argument is literally "I don't like them and think that they are autistic."
That's a shitty argument. Especially on the /Pokemon/ board. Now tell me, do you also hate the CYOAs?
Aura Time brought entertainment to the people that used those threads and the people who used them also thought they weren't too autistic for /vp/.
How autistic is too autistic is up to the user, and I think TRRP is too autistic. So do other people who complain about it (I have not made every post in this thread to link to TRRP) and so do the mods, considering they deleted every other RP thread and TRRP happened to get special permission. I still say one of those four TR admin tripfags are a mod or friends with a mod. It's the kind of circlejerk that belong on /trash/ or some obscure roleplaying forum.
The CYOA threads don't bug me. The reason quest threads are cancer on /tg/ is because there are too many of them, but they don't flood /vp/ at all and they're fine in concept. I'll take a quest thread over freeform roleplay any day of the week.
You're missing the point. Most people that didn't use the hypnosis threads thought that they were too autistic, while most people that don't use the Rocket threads do not think that they are too autistic. You and others in this thread are a vocal minority. Most don't mind.
Why should a vocal minority decide what's too "Autistic" for /vp/?
If the majority thinks they're fine they should speak up. Vocal minority is a buzzword.
>Most people that didn't use the hypnosis threads thought that they were too autistic
How would you know when you apparently ignored all the threads, including the big meta thread about permanently banning aura time?
I have almost never heard anyone say "man, those aura threads were pretty okay," it's only ever mentioned in a negative light.
I have to ask, are you one of those people who think /vp/ should be like /tr/ where mods never touch anything and people like Bui can ruin the board?
>are you one of those people who think /vp/ should be like /tr/ where mods never touch anything and people like Bui can ruin the board?
No, but I don't think that the RPs should be deleted. Especially when /ggvp/ and Pokegirl thread #11124338 are allowed.
Then why do you hate the RPs? They don't break any rules, anyone can join, and while they do turn into circlejerks, they certainly aren't terrible. Don't just say that they're "Autistic."
Give me a real answer.
You will not post any of the following outside of /b/: Trolls, flames, racism, off-topic replies, uncalled for catchphrases, macro image replies, indecipherable text (example: "lol u tk him 2da bar|?"), anthropomorphic ("furry") or grotesque ("guro") images, post number GETs ("dubs"), or loli/shota pornography.
Huh, I could've sworn low quality posts was Global Rule 3 all this time but I was wrong. Looking at it I meant to quote Global Rule 6.
>The quality of posts is extremely important to this community. Contributors are encouraged to provide high-quality images and informative comments.
I guess I need to read through all the rules again so I can be caught up before I try to police anything else. My point still stands despite quoting the wrong rule, though.
>>The quality of posts is extremely important to this community. Contributors are encouraged to provide high-quality images and informative comments.
This rule is subjective. Honestly, nearly all post on this website would be deleted if this rule went according to your whims, and I'm certain that many of your posts would be included. You can't possibly think that everything you dislike must be a low quality post, right?
Since that rule is subjective, it should be the majority that decides. You and your gang are not the majority. Unless more than half of the regular users of /vp/ decide to oppose it in a certified vote, the RPs should be left alone.
Like I said, if the majority is so fine with it, they should start complaining.
Strawpolls unfortunately don't work, the one in the aura time thread got botted. There's no real way to poll people on an anonymous website, so we can only go by the people who actually speak up.
>so we can only go by the people who actually speak up.
The people who actually speak up would be a noticeable amount if a majority hated it. The amount is not noticeable. This is the only place where I have seen people speak up about this in months. How many people are in this thread? 60?
Maybe less, if we have mobile users.
How many have been speaking up about their hatred of the Rocket RP?
This is not noticeable enough to consider it a majority.
Do you know how polls, like the one used to determine the scores of potential presidents, are made? They take a cut of the population, and get their opinions. We can assume that anyone who uses the Rocket RP is opposed to banning it, as well as myself, while we have 15~ people here that want it banned. That would be equal enough for it to not be considered a majority in a poll.
People will not speak up, because they don't mind. They are fine with it being here, and fine with it gone. When people don't care about it, they don't think that it breaks rule 6. Unless you can get a more sizable chunk of /vp/ users to speak against it, it should be left alone. It only potentially breaks one rule, and that rule is a matter of opinion, so the ones insisting that it breaks the rule on their opinion are the ones who need a sizable majority, not the one who want it to stay, because the neutral votes indicate that it should stay.
We have 10-15 people speaking up versus you and the five people who post in those threads (giving you the benefit of the doubt and saying you aren't one of them) defending it.
Neutral does not count as a positive vote, and only people who would otherwise lose the vote ever claim they do. If you want to save the Team Rocket RP threads, you should start drumming up support for them to make your claim true. If people don't care if they stay, they wouldn't care if they go, either.
>If people don't care if they stay, they wouldn't care if they go, either.
I just said that.
If people don't care if they stay, then their opinion is that they don't break Global Rule 6.
Meaning that the majority would not vote against it, meaning that their votes would go to the defender.
That is how it works. It only breaks a rule on opinion. This means that the majority must have that opinion. People that do not have any opinion do not have the opinion that you have. They do not want it gone. It is not those who want it to stay against those who want it gone, it is those who want it gone against everyone who does not want it gone. The latter group contains all that have no opinion, since they do not want anything in regards to the RP.
>People that do not have any opinion do not have the opinion that you have.
They also don't have the opinion you have.
If they don't have an opinion, then that's that, they don't have an opinion, full stop. If you pull them over and get them to consider what they think, they could decide they think it could stay or they could decide it doesn't belong on the board. Until then you cannot just assume everyone that isn't speaking directly about it thinks the same way.
If no one has an opinion on it, then it does not break GR6. The majority do not think that it breaks GR6. Anyone who actually wants it gone is here. There are barely any people here. Most people do not want it gone. You need most people to want it gone. As I said, it is you and your gang against everyone else.
If they are of the opinion that it does not break GR6, then they do have the opinion that I have.
>Anyone who actually wants it gone is here.
A lot of people don't know /qa/ exists or thinks it's a moderation-free shitpost board like it used to be so they never go here.
If you asked a random /vp/ user "hey, read one of these threads, do you think this should be on /vp/?" you would not have a 100% chance of them saying "sure, that's perfectly fine." People have different opinions and they simply don't feel strongly enough to express them, and not expressing an opinion is NOT the same as expressing a positive opinion.
In fact, let's give an example. Someone may very well think TRRP is autistic as hell and shouldn't be around. They thought this for a long time, so they reported the threads repeatedly, but they notice the threads never ever get deleted because that's how it was for a long time because a mod had favoritism for the thread. Disgruntled, they try their best to ignore it but still feel it shouldn't be there. They are not giving their consent for the thread, they simply think they can't make a difference, and if you asked them they'd probably speak against it.
But you probably think they'd give you the go-ahead to keep making those threads if it was up to them.
>But you probably think they'd give you the go-ahead to keep making those threads if it was up to them.
No, I think that they would shrug. They don't care. You are the one on the attack, and while there may be more people like you that hate it but aren't here, I guarantee that most would be fine. You are the one making a claim, and that claim is that these threads break GR6. You need a strong majority of /vp/ users to agree with to make this claim true. You do not have a strong majority, so this claim is untrue. I am not making the claim that this breaks GR6, I am opposing your claim. I do not need the majority, you do. Picture a castle. I am in this castle. You are trying to storm this castle. Even without guards, I have the advantage. I do not need as many people as you have or more to defend my castle against 15 people.
I'm tired, so I'm going to bed. I'll be back tomorrow for your new and improved argument.
>They don't care.
I literally gave an example of someone who would care but wouldn't publicly speak about it.
As for your castle analogy, the janitor deleting these threads is a dragon that can easily destroy your castle, how are you going to defend against that without anyone to fight?
So can we talk about this kind of blatant flooding for pure shitposting and derailment purposes that happens all the fucking time?
Because this not only got left up despite clearly being shitposting, people also got warned for reporting it. Come on. Do picdumps have to be Pepes or something to be noticed as the spam they are?
There's this fucking retard who can't speak English (seems to speak spanish judging by his use of a spanish meme) posting illegible google-translated trash who shits up any thread related to /vp/ projects or fakemon, in fact he just posted more garbage right now >>432059
Don't be like that, ROMhacks are fine. I haven't checked the thread itself so if it's full of shitposting then obviously that shitposting should be deleted, but even if I don't like Clover there's nothing wrong with /vp/ having a community project.
Aikatsu airs right before Pokemon and is considered honorary on-topic due to most people watching the show live watching Aikatsu as well.
Random discussion like that when it's not currently airing is rare, though. First time I've seen it.
So can something please be done about this already?
This isn't the autistic conversation it may look like on first glance, this is either one guy on both a computer and a cell phone or a team of two extremely coordinated shitposters spamming the same shit over and over and over. The same posts, the same responses, the same replies to the responses, for stretches of up to 15-16 HOURS a day every single day since last February, purely for the purpose of flooding the thread and drowning out all other conversation.
The replies are worded similarly every time, so it's not different people falling for bait, and the bait always gets these replies right away, so it's clearly coordinated. Likewise, so many posts about not responding to the shitposting get posted when this guy is shitting up the thread it's literally impossible for random newfags to stumble in and unknowingly take the bait without knowing they're responding to shitposts.
This IS a problem, it's been going on for nearly an entire year now, and it's hard to direct mod attention to it since it doesn't really look like shitposting if you haven't seen this exact 10+ hour long conversation a hundred times already the last hundred days.
Just do something about it, PLEASE.
And on that note, that entire thread is practically just 5 or so shitposters spamming constantly right now, making any attempts at actual conversation pretty futile. Pretty much every non-shitpost is just talking about the shitposting.
I've all but given up on /vp/ at this point. An anonymous board with no mods. What do you think will happen? It goes to utter shit.
I'm all in favor of resisting shitposting but at this point it's not even manageable. It's one poster spamming a 90 post long fapfic, while another spams stuff about Amour gets, and another endlessly baits people about Amour and either has a shitposter constantly replying to him or is replying to himself. that's just one thread too.
It's become nonstop in part because there's no moderation...one of the shitposters says he chooses to shit up /vp/ because he knows it has no mods. When the shitposting gets nonstop and there's still no mods, it's a recipe for failure. Moreover all this discussion on /qa/ has produced nothing. The shitposting keeps getting worse, the moderation remains shit except those occasional moments when one shows up for two hrs and then leaves again for 24 hrs.
The catalog is cluttered with boob and ass threads almost constantly now and threads that just have reposts of the same meme images or catchphrases. Sprinkled in are some recurring threads, many of which are just shitposter to death including the anime threads.
/vp/ has become a shitposter board, let's face it. I don't see that changing until hiro gets more mods/jannies, even if a new main game is announced.
See, that's part of the problem in itself. You can ignore and hide it but then one shitposter makes posts that hit all the bump limits, then proceeds to make a new thread that's a shitpost thread and you get people jumping into it.
The anime threads ARE shitposting and bait at this point. Basically non-shitposters have become an outlier there because 5 to 10 autists are there 15 hours a day to shit it up with fapfics, gore, porn, number gets, off-topic linkspam, "Amour is in danger" bait, random pokegirl or Amour pic spamming, falseflagging, flaming/trolling, and samefagging
The fanfic dump was actually a first last night, but the dump got through the whole thing without any janitor to clear it out.
At best there's five of them because three that you listed are all one guy.
It's been a full day nonstop now. An entire 24 hours. And the usual suspect has been there the whole time, I've gone back and seen his posts. Not to mention all his little pals dropping by. If one or two actual regulars were made jannies the whole farce would be solved.
More like it'd be terrible. If I make a post in some Ashnime v. Origins thread and get banned despite making a sincere argument without bait, that's dumb. There's more than one Pokémon anime you can refer to, "Ashnime" just means they're talking about the anime with Ash, and anime general shouldn't get so triggered at people using the word.
It is not a shitpost exclusive word, I use it all the time. And it's easier to say Ashnime than "the anime with Ash." If anything the Ashnime fans are the ones who use it to shitpost, not directly but there are always people (and I'm under the impression you're one of them) who completely ignore any post that uses the word and just replies to it with
Why is it fine to delete on-topic posts just for using a word you dislike?
>I choose to use a word that's only being used for shitposting and get triggered by people writing off my entire post as the shitpost it looks like
Maybe you'd be better off not using a word so associated with shitposting tons of people have it filtered?
there may be a few users that innocently use it, but /padt/ has seen enough shitposting in it's day to know that it's very popular with the shitposters, so it gets filtered because it makes it easier to ignore posts from them
If you use it, fine, but I won't see it
The point is that there's nothing in the term itself that indicates it's a shitposter term. There's nothing inherently negative and condescending about the wordin, it's become associated with shitposting purely because of its usage BY shitposters.
So when you actively choose to use a term nobody else apart from shitposters, you kinda have to live with the fact that your posts will get filtered or immediately written off as obvious shitposts at first glance. It's your own fault for writing like a shitposter.
I'm not writing like a shitposter. I'm writing like a normal person who happens to use the word "Ashnime."
If I made a post like
>I think Origins, though flawed, was better than the Ashnime because it told a finished story instead of Red being unable to progress like the Ashnime. I'd enjoy seeing more adaptions like Origins for the latter games, preferably with more runtime to them to fix the pacing issues Origins had.
Would that be "writing like a shitposter" just because I use Ashnime twice? Because that is the context in which I use Ashnime.
Well, yeah. You're knowingly wording your post in a way that screams "this is a shitpost" by using a word so strongly associated with shitposting people don't even bother reading what you wrote in your obvious shitpost. That's literally what "writing like a shitposter" IS.
Considering you're bringing this up in the first place, it's clearly annoying you in at least SOME way to have your posts treated like that, so why insist on going out of your way to look like you're shitposting if you want to avoid giving that impression?
>screams "this is a shitpost"
You're saying Ashnime is a shitpost word because it's used in shitposts, then saying my post is a shitpost because it uses what you consider a shitpost word. That's circular logic, point out any ACTUAL flaws with my post that would make it a shitpost.
And when you give someone an inch they take a mile. First we stop using the word Ashnime because people spam at us over it, then suddenly literally any criticism about the Ashnime is a shitpost.
Come on, anon. This isn't hard.
There's nothing about that post that is a shitpost, but you're deliberately going out of your way to ensure it ends up getting filtered as a shitpost or otherwise written of as a shitpost due to wording it in a way that makes it look like one.
Why are you so insistent on using that word anyway? What is the point of this entire "defending my right to look like a shitposter" thing? Why are you so opposed to making whatever points you're trying to make in a way that doesn't get you treated like a shitposter when it clearly bothers you so much? Why are you making such ridiculous leaps of logic regarding the content of your posts when you're simply being given extremely simplistic pointers on how not to get written off as a shitposter, pointers that literally boil down to "don't spell this word with an s and an h"?
I'm just trying to help here.
Because the use of the word "Ashnime" is almost constantly associated with people who have to differentiate between two animes.
To those people who watch the Pokemon Anime with Ash, there is only one anime and then the Origins specials. Using Ashnime implies that you place equal weight and value to both the Ash story and the Origins story and that you are admitting that you need a special term to differentiate between Ash and Red. You don't have to use Ashnime, you can easily say, "the anime" and people will understand what you're talking about. If you want to differentiate, you can just say, the anime and Origins. People will get that. There is no anime without Ash, just the anime and the Origins specials.
So when you use the term, "Ashnime" you sound like someone who doesn't know what they're talking about. And then usually those comparison posts involve people posting about Red and Ash and trying to compare the two as if they weren't apples and oranges.
It's fine to criticize the anime, hell you're entitled and encouraged to do so. But often times those who criticize it are either people who haven't watched the anime in over a decade if not longer and are completely out of touch and off-base with their critiques, or they're shitposters.
Very rarely do you get someone like yourself who actually doesn't intend to shitpost or troll and actually has something of substance to say.
Because the shitposters that coined it and used it on /a/ came to /vp/ and used it while spamming anime threads there, wanting to prevent the anime from being discussed anywhere on 4chan.
Of course. It's the pokemon board, what did you expect?
Also, while we're discussing shitposters I wish mods would implement an /mlp/ style rule for pepeposters. Frogposting stays on /r9k/, /s4s/, and probably /b/.
>Using Ashnime implies that you place equal weight and value to both the Ash story and the Origins story and that you are admitting that you need a special term to differentiate between Ash and Red.
And I do, because Ashnime and Origins are entirely separate entities with different tones and different outcomes.
The Ashnime is obviously larger and more well-known, but it's like getting made because I don't call Pokéspe "the manga" ignoring Electric Tale of Pikachu and all the other lesser-known ones.
Because I'm not going to be coerced by very weak attempts at bullying to get me to stop using a word you don't like.
And it's only a mild agitation when it happens, the reason I'm more adamant here is because anon suggested mods start banning people for using the innocuous word.
If someone is shitposting while using the word Ashnime, ban them for shitposting, not for using a word you don't like.
I didn't say you WERE shitposting, I said you were screaming that you were every time you used that word while posting.
You sitting here bitching about how autistic people are for using the filter and how you refuse to word your posts in ways that would prevent you from getting caught by it and treated like a shitposter isn't going to change anything. Your posts here aren't magically going to remove the word from people's filters no matter how much you scream "autist" at people explaining to you why you get treated the way you do.
Again, it's your loss.
I'm not doing that, people are just getting triggered and assuming I'm screaming it because they don't like the word.
And they aren't just filtering it, they're replying to my posts with nothing but ">Ashnime" which is completely different than them just ignoring it.
Are you legitimately autistic? Seriously?
The people replying with greentexts aren't reading the content of your posts, they're just spotting the word and replying as if it's a shitpost, which 99% of posts using that word are. It's clearly triggering you, yet you still refuse to word your posts differently, and you scream and insult people trying to tell you why those replies happen.
The people responding to your posts like that aren't sitting here reading your shit. Nothing is going to change from this. You're still going to get those responses as long as you use that word, it's up to you whether the pleasure you feel from continuing to do what you insist on outweighs the annoyance you feel from getting those responses.
Since you're complaining about them here, it's clear they trigger you more than you can handle, though.
>The people replying with greentexts aren't reading the content of your posts, they're just spotting the word and replying as if it's a shitpost, which 99% of posts using that word are.
No shit, Sherlock. You don't give into an SJW (these people aren't SJWs but it's a similar principle) just because they piss and whine and try to annoy you into stopping, though.
You realize you're talking to a guy who's been sitting here for two hours sperging about how he can use the words he wants in his posts and completely disregarding everyone trying to explain to him why he's better off avoiding that specific word if he doesn't like the replies he gets for using it, right?
I mean at this time you're also starting to get someone who's probably the same guy that makes the spamming threads in /qa/ starting an image dump in the anime threads as well as his usual baiting with a second guy.
Yeah, it's almost certainly that shitposter that keeps making threads here on /qa/ to bitcha bout the anime threads. He just did one of his usual things, which was post a link in the anime thread to a random thread on a totally different board. I also think he's the one the who just pic-spammed all the May images, since all his "Amour will never happen" baiting mysteriously stopped for a bit and the May pic-dumping mysteriously started immediately afterwards.
No, you have three. The one samefagging Serena GETs shitposter, the /qa/ thread spammer who's the one doing the May pic-dumping and fanfic spamming and scat spamming and "/v/ thread is up" spamming, and that PIRN dumper.
Hours later after it all started, still no mods. Unbelievable.
>The one samefagging Serena GETs shitposter, the /qa/ thread spammer who's the one doing the May pic-dumping and fanfic spamming and scat spamming and "/v/ thread is up" spamming
This is one and the same person.
Both of them spam the threads quite a bit with other forms of shitposting and bait, however.
Pretty much everything in this thread is shitposting...pic dumping, linkspam, porn garbage outside of /b/, number gets, fanfic spam, where the hell are the jannies when you need them?
Can we get some mod attention here:
This shitter >>433053 that sits there for hours every day talking to himself for baiting and trolling purposes has been shitting it up for the last two hours or so, and chances are he'll stay there for another 5+.
This happens on a daily basis, and it's near impossible to get someone to deal with him. Come on.
They are bumping the thread whenever it's about to go off the board even though none of them are doing their RP shit at the time. Considering how they all start and stop at the same time, they all know when they're going to start doing it again but they bump the thread anyway despite none of them intending to use it for likely another 6+ hours.
>at least three people start fetishposting/shitposting/flameposting in spite of one person
>"nuh uh! that one person needs to go away!"
Sure faggorito, next you'll tell me that you'll never be like Sage although people who post and work on the game will keep demanding you to isolate yourself in the IRC.
I'll do it for free like the mods on /sp/, just fucking get someone who loves /vp/ to moderate /vp/ please.
This shit is fucking despicable. Why is this up. Not to mention the digimon trolling. Not sure why that gets to stay up when it's blatant shitposting.
"muh board culture, we're been here since /tr/, get out newfag"
yes, but from the quick browsing the thread, no porn has been posted, yet the shitposting never stopped.
If I recall, titdevoir usually gets deleted, but it seems like jans/mods are busy elsewhere
Things like pokemon general exsited and they were scrapped because there is not enough discussion to go around that topic so it created massive shitposting, image dumps, or just a dead ass general.
There is NOT enough discussion to make a general out of one pokemon no matter how many different ways you say you wanna fuck it.
That being said I have no idea why moderation allows today when similar things were just deleted in the past.
There's one(?) guy spamming any threads about the newly revealed Pokémon about how it's a fart Pokémon. I know the thread's about to fall off the board but I think it's worth mentioning in case we can squeeze one last bit of usefulness from the thread before it goes.
Just a couple examples from like two different threads, he's been to more than just those threads though.
