/a/ has always enjoyed favoritism from the mods and moot. That's still true even now, under Hiro.
A lot of what /a/nons call "self-moderation" was paradoxically something only possible because of how carefully moderated the board is. /a/'s mods for a long time did not interfere in the mechanations of the community. If /a/nons decided to spam naruto off the board, they not only permitted it but actually banned naruto posters to go along with it.
That mostly stopped when moot decided to force /a/ to admit naruto posters due to their whinging on /q/. But that also made things very chilly between /a/ and the mods, and there were some doxing events and other things that eventually led to some concessions which we still see in effect: /a/ has a limited allowance of NSFW content and also does not allow recommendation threads, both things are now officially sanctioned by Hiro and the mods, where before they had been more unwritten rules created by the community.
>>417246 >a community acts like a community and enforces community standards and its leaders allow them to do so and govern themselves and their fun >those fucking spoiled children how dare they have a community act like a community and dont welcome me a outsider with open arms You're an idiot and your new is showing. The rest of 4chan did literally the exact same until the site was overran by newfags who don't care about the site and destroyed board culture on the rest of the site. You are the upset spoiled child here, for not liking the fact a community is a community, acts like a community and shuns outsiders and stupidity.
>>417253 /a/ makes its own fairy tale rules. Endlessly complains to the mods that it should be that way. Mods give up on enforcing many rules just like on many other boards. (Look at the much complained about eceleb threads on /v/, even if they are video game culture which is allowed on /v/). /a/ claims victory when something that is claimed to be so important, isn't written down many years later. If this was such a big thing on /a/, there would be a better written set of rules for /a/. /a/ bitches like mad and acts like they're the best thing ever when they really, really aren't. /a/ is just like /v/, except they actually take offence when called bad.
>>417279 >defending e-celeb garbage I'm not going to even bother correcting you on everything else, as this is enough to know how fucking stupid and new you are. It's banned for the same reason Nurutu was. It's stupid and the people who talk about it are stupid, as such, it gets banned as it doesn't belong here, bring anything good to the table and the people who actually use a board and care about the board don't want it there. You are showing your new by thinking this is a site that is rule driven and not community driven. That's why /a/ got what its what. Because, not just did moot and the mods like the board, the community cared about itself and drove itself. You have a misunderstanding about the site and either sit on the extreme shitposting fence or the 4chan is srs bsns and discussion of everything is allowed fence. Board culture was enforced by the mods as they were literally apart of the community, so they enforced it as unwritten rules as the boards wanted. Kill yourself
/a/ had and has good (as good as it can be) moderation but they also helped themselves. A lot of boards should learn from /a/ about how to deal with /pol/ trash, newfags who want to be spoonfed, and retards who cares about other sites and come here for validation. Sadly boards like /v/ and /sp/ are already lost.
>>417411 You are the fucking retard showing your new. /a/ board culture isn't /a/ culture, it is fucking old 4chan culture. The current /a/ is just a warped version of it, but it doesn't change the fact of what it was. Yes, every fucking board at one point self-moderated itself and fucking told people to lurk moar. /a/ isn't some special fucking snowflake, it only is on modern 4chan, because its the only board that retain some actual old 4chan culture and still is a community.
