I would like to write down how I think about "dead" boards.

*****
I'm wondering why we have to stop or delete any boards which is useless?
Maybe we just leave them alone.

As long as users use a board, it's worth to be alive, I think.
Even I don't understand why it's fun for them.

If the board harms, it's controversial.

Hello Hiro, please wordfilter Reddit, it's a blight on the site and leads to plenty of shitposting
Thanks
And sure, there's no real reason to delete boards, unless you don't want people to talk about a certain topic. It's not like they're going to use up any bandwidth while they just linger.
>>
>>416437
Why should we delete a board if it is used? Even >>>/po/ and >>>/i/ have value to them despite getting only a few posts per day
>>
>>416437
hiro things rot over time.

Boards become worse and worse.

Not many deserve deleting, but some have to be cleaned. Rejuvenated.
>>
>6 posts
>5 IPs

Silly hiro.
>>
>>416437
That's a neat looking hamburger. I'd take off a few of those things, though.
>>
>>416446
Stay on topic man, this isn't a general Q&A, let him get his info and have a general Q&A later.
>>
>>416451
Well, I came here to make a thread about how Hiro should wordfilter Reddit, and what I see is a thread by Hiro himself, made the moment I opened the board
It's like someone's listening to my thoughts, and I just had to write it
>>
>>416437
I think the only real reason to delete a board is when people no longer talk about the intended topic. If there's only few posters on a board, but they still stay on-topic, then that's completely fine.
Unless the 4chan software has a limit to how many boards you can make, then you could think about deleting some boards to make room for more active ones, but I doubt that.
>>
>>416437
Hi, Hiro.
The issue with having too many boards is balkanization. You end up splitting up topics which used to be discussed on one board, which diminishes the experience on each board. Deleting slow boards wouldn't delete the topic, it would just move it over to a larger board where it would be integrated with other topics.
>>
hiro! much love from burgerland.
am visiting japan soon, will be sure to say hi if i see you walking around!
>>
>>416453

>>

>>
>>416455
Larger boards are not necessarlily good though, as becomes apparent when you take a look at some of the big boards like /tv/ or /v/. Smaller boards can improve the quality of discourse, but they can also lead to circlejerking, I suppose.
>>
>>416460
I guess the point I'm trying to make is that we COULD create a board about just basketball, and it would get some posts every day, but the reason we don't do that is because it would fracture existing boards for no real reason. When people want to talk about basketball, they can do that comfortably on /sp/, and creating a board exclusively for that is bad for /sp/ and for /basketball/ because it divides a community. Similarly, re-integrating unpopular topics back into bigger boards may end up being better for the community as a whole.
>>
hiro please delete /trash/ before it's too late
>>
>>416464
No, just disable thread creation.
>>
>>416465
this would be okay but i still don't understand why anything should be sent to trash.

If it is bad enough to remove, why keep it around hiro?
>>
>>416466
Keeps some shitposters busy for a little bit
>>
>>416467
you could use /b/ or just whatever board makes it not off topic

but yes /trash/ needs to stop making threads
>>
>>416437
Hiroyuki-san,

I believe boards that are truly dead should be re-integrated into new boards. As an example, if /k/ and /m/ both saw less than 20 posts a day, perhaps those 2 boards could be combined into 1. Though the topics would be totally different, it would provide a place for the userbases of both boards to thrive rather than being deleted.

Another idea:
Maybe you can lower the amount of pages on slow boards, just as you have done on /qa/. I agree with you, as long as people are using a board, it's worthwhile. Maybe cutting the page numbers back by half would be the best choice.
>>
>>416455
Balkanization is a really big word for Hiro, man.

>>416437
Hiro, I recommend you don't delete any "dead" boards, but you should perhaps revitalize, rename, or repurpose them. For example, /i/ could become a general purpose drawhoring, request, quest, interactive art board or something, since nobody's using it for anything right now.

/po/ on the other hand should probably be left completely alone as it's never hurt anybody and it's kind of a nice vase that really ties the room together.

Hi Hiro, I agree with a few of these other anons, deletion should be used sparingly, and repurposing a few boards could bring some new life to the slower boards, as well as clearing some of the clutter on other boards.
>>
>>416437
I agree about this and I've been telling people more or less the same thing for a while now. I'm glad to hear the admin of this site feels the same way as me, it feels like my opinions have been justified.

By the way, I'd like to take this opportunity to recommend keeping a closer eye on your mod team. They seem to be trying some shady things behind your back.
>>
>>416437
Hiro, for the love of god, do not listen to /qa/. Ever.

Most of this shithole is populated by fresh-off-the-boat /b/tards and Redditors looking to fuck over this place with stupid ideas.

Don't add any boards. Don't remove any boards. Don't add or remove filters.
>>
>>416473
I like the idea of a general drawhoring/quest board, maybe with /tg/ dice script
Also, maybe we could delete /x/ and make a dreams and spiritualism board. Anything to make /x/ less shit

thanks, hiro!
>>
>>416502
So, off-topic threads? I think some kind of general spirituality/religion space could clean up /x/ /lit/ and maybe /his/, though religion seems to belong there now
>>
Deleting anything will only lead to butthurt and shitposters freaking out.
>>416505
There is no such thing as an off topic thread. /trash/ is here to stay, and the board I spend most of my time on now.
>>
>>416505
>So, off-topic threads?
yep.
>>
>>416506
Making anime threads on /out/ is off topic
Posting about cars in /a/ is off topic
The vague nature of board themes allows for a wide breadth of topics, but there are liminal topics that don't exactly fit anywhere, or Shit up the area they Normally end up discussed in
>>
>>416502
>there is a thread bad enough for a board, but it worth for other place.
I don't quite understand what you're trying to say. Are you trying to say that a thread might be bad on one board, but good on another?
>>
>>416507
Hiro, there are a lot of *chans with boards like /trash/, but none of them allow thread creation. Allowing people to make threads on /trash/ is just encouraging shitposting.
>>
>>416510
I agree, it seems to defeat the purpose
>>
>>416503
Have you returned to Japan yet?

Also there a lot of issues that /a/ and /jp/ have that need fixing.
>>
will you be my gf hiro chan
>>
>>416510
The fact that people can make threads is what makes /trash/ beautiful. It takes stress off of the moderators and allows off-topic threads to have a home.

Hiro, please don't change /trash/. I think it's working exactly how it's meant to work.
>>

Australia. Fucking Australia.

If you create a board just for us Australians, it would simultaneously be the best and worst fucking board ever.
>>
>>416517
>The fact that people can make threads is what makes /trash/ beautiful

No it's just bland furshit and ponyshit. There's nothing beautiful about that.
>>
>>416523
>There's nothing beautiful about that
You do realize that you are talking about a board literally called /trash/, right?
>>
>>416524
yes
>>
>>416525
No, you don't.
>>
>>416523
Is there really anything bad about furshit/ponyshit though?
Think about it, it removes furry porn from >>>/b/ and allows NSFW content from >>>/mlp/ to be posted. Although that was probably not the boards intended function, it works surprisingly well.
>>
don't add or delete any more boards, the way it is now is fine

Hiroyuki, We are in desperate need for a /cape/ board.

82/148 - star wars (/tv/) (not counting the pedo threads and non-SW shitposts)
the rest usually die with 10 posts or less.

Usually more pronounced on /co/ during release of a comic book movie because /tv/ comes in. This will destroy these boards.

Take a look at the future release schedule, 2016-2020:
35 capeshit films
29 new capeshit shows
5 (minimum possible number, rumored) Star Wars films.
Also, not counting the various tie-in comics, merchandise, and other things which tie in users from /toy/, /co/, /a/ and /tv/.

Before these movies are released there are three trailers on average for each film, and the subsequent movie bitching threads and then comparison threads. These fill up /tv/ and /co/, and /cpsht/ will be ESSENTIAL if board quality is to be maintained.

/cpsht/ rules:
Allow ONLY capeshit (comics and movies) and sci-fi video media
BAN discussion of capeshit comics and movies from /tv/ and /co/

pic related is missing some movies and tv shows.

Combining low-traffic but related boards can help generate more content by introducing users to new subjects. /g/ and 3d/ should be combined. Some of the divisions seem kind of arbitrary.

Hiro if you do make that board that people claim will save /co/ and /tv/, do not call it capeshit. It's the equivalent of calling /a/ - moeshit. Plus you should just make a /mdc/ - Marvel/DC board since that's all that board will be. Treat it like /vr/ with comic and cartoon threads still allowed on /co/ just no live action or video game threads or toy threads.

I think this would wear the board topics too thin. While you have a valid point, I really think that capeshit should be a /co/ thing not a /tv/ thing, as all of these things started as comics, to my knowledge.
>>
>>416542
you're my "hiro"
get it
>>
I also believe that /trash/ should not be allowed to create threads. I see it as a means of users getting around the rules and that's not okay.

To answer the OP post, I believe that boards should for the most part not be deleted, but there can be merit in fusing boards together that have similar enough topics and a small enough userbase/post count. I don't see it as deleting one board, just consolidating.
>>

What rules are being broken on /trash/?

The problem is the lack of proper staffing for these boards. Judging by the quality of moderation (or lack thereof) affecting other boards, the staff is either not large enough to keep the site in order, or they're overwhelmed with the sheer degree of content that needs to be managed.

It doesn't help the situation any that the post reporting function requires users to input CAPTCHAs before they can report anything. Then there's the fact that only one post can be reported at a time. It takes me an upward of 30 minutes just to report all the off-topic content in some threads, and there's no guarantee that a janitor or moderator will even notice the reports in a timely fashion... if ever.

So as a result, we have boards being overrun by off-topic content, /soc/ content, spam, etc., and we - as users - have very limited power to bring these issues to the staff's attention.

How do you define a "dead" board? Because many boards are extremely slow, but still not dead.

Hello Hiro!

The board /s4s/ is very harmful and should be deleted. The board is extremely bad and is run by a moderator who orders attacks on other boards.

Delete /s4s/. It's harmful to the other boards.

Bans only affect an extremely small portion of people, those with a static IP. The only time a ban has stopped me from posting was when my dynamic IP was last used by some /sp/ shitposter who got banned.

>>416437
Slow boards are almost a good thing in some aspects, but at the moment we don't need to add or remove any boards. What I think everyone needs at the moment is stuff to make the site more fun. Not new boards for serious discussion, but silly fun stuff like the CSS changes on Halloween and Sticky, and the birthday hats (for example).

To address your original point, most of 4chan is fine the way it is. More or less boards are not the solution at the moment, but refining those boards we currently have, and generally making 4chan a more fun place to browse.

>>416653
No, he's saying you'll shitpost wherever you go.
>>
I'd say there's nothing wrong with dead boards as long as increased bandwith/bigger database isn't a problem, but that can always be tweaked by board settings.

One argument I can see is that it takes space/attention from other boards and makes the whole site somehow less pleasant to use. If there were 100 boards and 99% people only used 10 of them, then having the other 90 could be partially a nuisance. I'd say this could be fixed without deleting boards by just making 2 indexes, one with popular boards and one with less popular/slower boards. Alternatively some boards can be hidden from the index self, but that doesn't sound like a good solution to me.

I suspect that reasoning may only apply to slow boards? Popular boards may bring in too much traffic (and thus revenue) to be deleted even if they do cause harm.

>>416437
Which boards in particular do you have it mind? /lgbt/ for example is often considered slow compared to the real popular boards, but I consider it's speed ideal - on popular boards, if you enter a discussion and then have to go shopping or whatever, when you come back the thread is already archived. The slowest board I'm familiar with is /n/, which is a weird case because it kind of has this schism between cyclists and general transportation discussion, but it's too slow already to split.

>>416454
This desu

>>416455
This desu. Some really large boards might deserve a split (like putting quests and forum games on a separate board, whereas now they take up like half of /tg/ and sometimes appear on /b/ as well). But with too many boards, you end up with a situation like reddit and the other chan, where there's many boards that barely see use individually.
>>
>>416443
Nope, just change name to /gsm/ or something.

>>416509
Pretty much I think, if the only bad thing about a thread is that it's off-topic, it should be moved rather than deleted. Though /trash/ seems pretty pointless, we already have /b/ for topics that would be off-topic anywhere else. I think off-topic threads should be moved to another board (though post numbers and stuff would make implementing these features on ALL boards a programming nightmare, most likely). And in addition to a dedicated board for forum games, we should have a SFW random board as well.

>>416527
If it's a furry porn board, it should be labeled as such. /trash/ was supposed to be a dedicated shitposting board but failed because it got taken over by furfags - who moot apparently considered too cancerous to even grant them a containment board.

>>416437
I like the idea of having lots of boards.

The risk is that maybe when you split a live board into two dead boards, or an active and well-loved subtopic on an active board gets its own board, doesn't adjust well, and dies (or is recovered by the original board).
>>
>>416437
I agree hiro. I imagine if I were someone who went on a slow board like /po/ regularly and found out it was gone one day I'd be pretty sad.

They don't hurt anyone by existing
>>
A lot of the "dead" board are only dead compared to the most active boards on this site. They still have activity, it's just very slow compared to the larger boards.

Also I don't think deleting "dead" boards is a very good policy. As long as there are people enjoying them and staying on topic then it's fine. Rather, I think deletion should be considered for boards that don't live up to their intended purpose. If a board can only have activity through off topic discussion then there's probably no reason for it to exist.
>>
>deleting "dead" boards

Why would you delete the only good boards left on the site?
>>
/news/ is the only that deserves to be deleted, really. It's lucky if it gets 10 posts an hour and provides no insight that can't can't be found beneath the linked articles in the comment section.

There's also the annoying name conflict between http://www.4chan.org/news and >>>/news/ . If Hiro plans to keep the board, he should at least give it a more suitable name, like /new/.

>dead boards
Nothing really wrong with them and anyone who suggest actually deleting them is probably really new to the site. The same sort of user who thinks /news/ failed and needs pictures. At best, those dead boards should either be re-purposed or merged to give them new life.

The only boards that should have any consideration of deletion is /pol/ and /vg/. However, not for the reasons idiots on /qa/ will give you.

/pol/ should be considered, because 4chan was originally created sitting in the middle between shitposting and intelligent discussion. The site receives both sides, but no part of the site is for a single side, except [s4s]. It was also created for discussing anime, niche hobbies and for having fun. Which is the problem with /pol/. It doesn't fit on the site. Politics is neither a hobby, nor is discussion of it particularity fun as people take it too seriously. It's also hard to maintain it from falling into either pure shitposting or intelligent discussion. Even more so considering the site size and the site format. /pol/ was moots worst mistake and its a bit late to delete it, in all honesty. All though, deleting it and forcing it all back into /b/ might breathe some life back into it that isn't just posting porn and reposts. But, that would be hard to do considering the sites size and the fact board and website culture is slowly disappearing as newfags refuse to adapt and would rather shit everywhere.

/vg/ was moots second mistake, as generals just simply don't belong on the site and clash with literally everything the site is meant to do and how its ran. /vg/ was never needed, as generals should of been just banned, like they were once before the mods got lazy again. It is also not fulfilling its intended purpose as generals still exist on /v/ and because of it, generalculture has grown across the site. The mods already promised to ban them on /a/ two years ago, and we are still waiting for them to actually fulfill their promise.
>>
>>417233
>except [s4s]
you're probably not seeing all of the posts
>>
>>417241
For all intents and purposes, [s4s] really is a board for just shitposting and old /b/ type posting. But, even a board for shitposting on a odd occasion can get some really intelligent posting.
>>
>>417233
>>417241
Speaking of /s4s/, that's actually something I think Hiro should consider getting rid of. The problem with some boards is not that they're "dead" but that they're actively harming the rest of the site, and that's what /s4s/ is doing with its calls to invade the rest of 4chan, which have been going unpunished.
>>
And another thing. Those gentlemen on [s4s] are just too dang sexy. How am I supposed to compete with that! Plus they have the qtest 2d girlfriends

Apparently the mod that posted that was removed later on so he couldn't follow up on his words.

>>
>>416437
You're right, Hiro. There's no reason to delete boards; people just beg for things to be deleted because they think they take up space somehow.

I think some people only use one board, so they don't understand that a lot of users browse different boards.

Hiro, I really hope you come back around today. There's a lot of things that need your attention.

>>417322
That's not how the internet works. There's not a finite amount of space. The only issue is with redundancy and over-specification, which we're a long way away from.

The only boards that can really be classified as "dead" is stuff like /po/, which is a really specific topic, or things like /o/ which don't have a lot of interests that cross over with the internet nerd demographic.

A user can use more than one board. One board doesn't take users away from another.
>>
>>416999
Hiro said /trash/ was for threads that were good /popular but off-topic. It was not and was never intended to be a dedicated shitposting board.
See:>>416502

It became a furry board because those threads were both popular and off-topic. Ironically, the board that houses the people "too cancerous to even grant them a containment board" is one of the least drama filled boards on the site.

Moot only refused to make /fur/ because he was a goon from SA, and SA goons hated furries. That's all there ever was to it.

Stop being stupid. /qa/ is the worst board on the entire site to actually seriously talk to Hiro about anything. The majority of the posters are here are just a loud minority and mostly newfags. You only need to browse a few threads to tell most of the people trying to bring change to the site posting here have only been here for less than 3 years and have no idea what the fuck they are talking about.

Just because you believe this doesn't make it true. The vast majority of the board is made up of people who only came here because something went wrong with their board that they're trying to draw attention to.

I'm sure you think all the threads where people report mass spamming going unmoderated or their boards being fucked by overzealous moderation are part of some elaborate conspiracy to destroy /a/, but that's because you're severely mentally ill.

It's his site now. He can do what he wants with it. You don't like it, buy it from him.
>>
>>417421

I'm not sure you actually understand how 4chan works.

The amount of people who are going to use a dedicated metaboard is always going to be lower that the amount of people who use a board proper. That is because there are less people who are both concerned about the state of their board and willing to spend time on a dedicated board lobbying for fixes is lower than the amount of people who are content with suffering in silence.

It's like voting. Everyone has an opinion, but not everyone goes out and votes. The opinions of the percentage of people who vote (or, in this case, use /qa/) provides a representative sample of the users of the board in question.

You are feverishly convinced there is a conspiracy of raiders from Reddit and 8ch trying to "change things," but have provided no proof. You are blaming things you don't like, which in this case is "change," on an invisible outside force. This is a sign of mental illness.

I suggest you seek help. Some states provide mental health clinics for little to no charge at universities. Check online for mental health resources near you.

Good luck my friend. I hope you get the help you need.

>The vast majority of the board is made up of people who only came here because something went wrong with their board that they're trying to draw attention to.
You can't actually seriously believe this? Considering a good portion of the people who regularly post here are straight up anti-anime, steam literal newfaggotry and straight up show they don't know what the fact they are talking about. Sure, there /are/ people who came here for the times hiro comes here, but thats a minority. THe majority are stupid fucking idiots who don't know right from left and think they know best. They also don't want hiro to leave their fucking echo chamber, because that would imply he'd actually do something fucking constructive that isn't listening to idiots whine about inane garbage and he'd also gain knowledge of the site and its user. Of course you want him here, because you are one of those idiots who want to get him to do something that if you asked him to do one anywhere else on the site, you'd get shit down because you're a fucking retard.

Nice strawman, I never said that.

>And right there you've shown your hand.
I don't even fucking watch anime, you stupid moron. But, you can't deny the fact 4chan is anime focused site and getting upset about anime being posted here makes you a literal moron who shouldn't be posting here in the first place. Why would you go to a forum primary focused and has a deep history on x and then complain that x is posted? Hoards of newfags coming here won't change the sites history and purpose.

>>
>>417457
Anon, looking in it is besides the point. Both /b/ and /trash/ are random/offtopic boards made to hold topics for everything that doesn't belong elsewhere. /trash/ is a /b/ clone as it serves the same exact fucking purpose as /b/. You could argue things like /r9k/ and /s4s/ are /b/ clones, but at least they have a theme. /trash/ serves the same purpose, its just has a different name.

I wasn't asking for it to be deleted, I was asking what was the fucking point of making it when it is just fucking /b/ with a different name. Instead of moving threads to /trash/, they could of been moved to /b/. In fact, doing this would of been good, as people that aren't normalfag newfags might of started using /b/ again and bring life back to it that isn't fucking porn and facebook shit.

Its called a representative government.

Let me ask you something- how many times did moot post on boards other than /a/ or /jp/? How often did he get feedback from the rest of the site?

The answer is "nearly never." Without a centralized forum for putting forth issues, the admin will almost always only listen to the boards he personally frequents. If Hiro is not interested in Automobiles, do you think he'll go to /o/? Probably not.

Ideally Hiro would cycle through each board on a regular basis, but the fact of the matter is that if there's nowhere for every board to be heard, then the only boards that will be heard are the ones hiro decides to pay attention to. /qa/ gives every board an equal voice.

>As you are one of those retards trying to make change to the site that will get you laughed at and told to fuck off anywhere else because its stupid and you just want to take advantage of Hiro's naiveness.
What changes am I trying to make that insult you on such a personal level?

>4chan isn't going to abandon its root any time soon.
I'm pretty sure that if the majority of the site is anti-anime or anime agnostic, it can't actually be considered an anime site. I'm sorry that that hurts you, but anime just isn't that popular anymore.

Most of the older users grew out of it, and the younger users grew up in a time when anime was no longer being shown on television, so they weren't introduced to it at a young age.

Times change, though. I'm sure people thought disco culture would last forever too, and weeb culture definitely won't be the last flash-in-the pan subculture to burn out.

Aside from /biz/, [s4s] was moot's final board. A board he kept around after April Fool's because he loved it so much. He had faith in [s4s], it could be better than any other board that came before it. Deleting it would be a slap in his face and derail 4chan from its original destiny to become the greatest meme site on the internet. moot knew this.
>>
>>417554
The mods aren't gone yet, and I believe it's Hiro's philosophy too. The other boards also play an important role, but that doesn't change the fact that 4chan's main focus is still anime.
>>
>>417558
Some of them need to go and new ones need to be brought in
>>
>>417558
4chan doesn't have a main focus.
>>
>>417554
>Hiro has made no moves towards making this site more anime oriented

He added /wsr/ which is a primarily anime-focused board.
>>
>>417556
It being moot's final board is all the more reason to get rid of it. It came from a time when he no longer cared about the site and was doing all he could to drag it through the mud.
>>
>>417571
wsr/ is NOT primarily anime-focused, stop making shit up.

He also added /his/, a board that moot refused to create. weaaboos hate that board.
>>
>>417575
>weaaboos hate that board
The fuck are you talking about? I love /his/
>>
>>417575
/wsr/ IS primarily anime-focused, stop making shit up.
>>
>>417578
No. Read the rules for that board and read the sticky. Anime is NOT the primary focus.
>>
>>417575
Moot was a retard who was trying to kill the site. You know what you can discuss on a history board? Japanese history. It's a Japanese board.
>>
>>417581
>Asking for recommendations for a new anime or TV series to watch, or a new manga or comic series to read.

You were saying?
>>
>>417584
You were saying that anime was the PRIMARY focus. It clearly is not.
>>
>>417582
>It's a Japanese board
Oh wow. Look at this guy, what a delusional weeb.
>>
>>417589
So when you're proven wrong you're just gonna change the narrative to suit you. Fuck off and admit defeat.
>>
>>417568
That's just your opinion, man.

>>417570
The denial is real.

Look at the banners. Look at 4chan's mascot aka 404 girl. There's a reason why the mods treat /a/ differently from the rest of the site.
>>
>>417465
4chan is a dictatorship but with a philosopher king who listens and considers.

At the end of the day, there is no vote. Democracies have problems. People who are the best at talking can sway opinions, and 80% of people are stupid as hell due to the Pareto Principle.

"Dictatorship but with a good dictator" is the best form of government. It's just next to impossible to achieve.

We must have faith in Hiro.

Don't delete dead boards.


Good board additions: /wsr/ and /his/

Lots of people enjoy these.

Just don't make boards that nobody will enjoy, or else there will be more dead boards to deal with.

Not to mention the main advertiser sells fucking hentai sex toys

>>417616
I'll start having more faith in him once he deals with the mods and actually hires new ones. See this thread for example >>417380

It seems more and more clear now that we have proof the mods are purposely shitposting up boards they don't like
>>
>>416437
Hiro you need to talk to the mods. You say you want us to bring up complaints on the IRC channels to them, but we've told you the mods have banned people from the channel because they don't want to hear it from us. They also do not check the feedback at all. Hiro you must understand the mods despise the userbase on here, and you need to do something about their attitude. Either tell them to get on board with you if the truly do care about 4chan, or fire them if they continue to go behind your back, which they have been doing time and time again, trying to take advantage of you
>>
>>417623
That really isn't having faith in somebody. That's wanting them to do whatever you want. Having faith is understanding that maybe he has better ways of doing things than you are. "What I want" doesn't necessarily mean "Good." In fact, what you want is probably diametrically opposed to what many other people want.
>>
>>417628
How is what I said not good? You know as well as I do the mods have serious fucking problems. Hiro may or may not be aware of this, and if he is, he doesn't know what to do about it.
>>
>>417630
It doesn't matter what it is that you're saying. I'm uninterested in the substance of your contingency for having faith in Hiro. It isn't faith if it has a contingency. That's more like "Respect" which I don't really care about.
>>
>>417638
And like I said, I'll start believing in him once he fixes the mod problem.
>>
>>417642
You'll find that nobody will ever do everything you want, and when you start getting what you want, you'll start wanting more until Hiro betrays you.

That's exactly what they want you to believe. I have undeniable proof that /po/ has been involved in everything from gamergate to the terrorist attacks on 9/11

I doubt Hiro could delete /po/ even if h wanted to. They've become too strong.

>>417770
You can't read cookies of other sites for very obvious reasons, but there are some ways to detect what sites do you browse. See below.

>>417776
In order to track an individual from one website to another, the different sites all have to share some code from a third party website. That’s how advertisers and tracking companies work, it’s how the same adverts can appear to follow you around the Internet. This is how Twitter knows what websites you’ve visited, for example. This could be used to detect Reddit users.

I hope those who suggest this shit kill themselves. Actually replacing the mods will only make everything worse. How is having a bunch of stupid newfags who don't even know anything about 4chan culture or old board culture supposed to be good? The only people who think that shit is good isthe anti-mod fags who came in here in the past three years and think they run the place and have the wrong idea about the site. Kill youreself

Can we get a /futa/ board?

Save /d/
>>
>>418014
It doesn't matter how much the board has changed over the years, /d/ was originally made literally to just try and contain futa. Making another board to contain it is retarded and childish.
>>
Hiro a question, why are banners removed with the time? why not keep them? they make no harm.

>>417201
>The stuff is a shitflinging drama and fucked up porn magnet, even worse than pedo porn.
So why is /v/ still not deleted?

Great post I wholeheartly agree with.

>>418014
How about instead of a /futa/ board, there's a /nfd/ for no futa /d/, so that YOU have to be the one to get out. Sound good?

Is this the [s4s] thread?
Contrary to popular belief [s4s] is 4chan's meme board not /b/ 2.0, that's what /trash/ was made for.
So the next time you want to insult [s4s] remember the memes you are using on a daily basis probably came from [s4s].
>>
1. The only boards that should be deleted are /vp/ and /mlp/. And not because I dislike them. I don't care. The reason is that they focus on only one particular fandom and it's bound to get a ton of shitposting because there's only so much you can say about those topics. So, they should either be deleted or expanded. Like /vp/ could go from just Pokemon to any kind of collectible monster hunting game. And maybe /mlp/ can just be expanded to be for any kind of "girly" shows. That or send them back to their homeboards.

2. /gd/ and /3/ could easily be merged and would probably be better off for it. Not sure how each of their communities feel about it, but it's not a bad idea and one that has come up often.

3. Making /j/ read only or otherwise having someone watch the moderators. We could use a little transparency from them. As it is now, it does seem like mods are just kinda fucking off and doing whatever they want at the moment, filtering words, letting shitposting stay up because they find it amusing and deleting others, etc.

They need to learn that they need to either get on board or get the fuck out. Because they're acting like they don't have a boss anymore since moot's been gone and just go around doing whatever they want.

>It doesn't fit on the site. Politics is neither a hobby, nor is discussion of it particularity fun as people take it too seriously. It's also hard to maintain it from falling into either pure shitposting or intelligent discussion. Even more so considering the site size and the site format.
okay, If you actually gave the same reasons /qa/ gives you would make more sense
"discussing politics" on /pol/ IS fun. people don´t go to /pol/ to takes politics seriously, not at least all the way. also the board is not about politics only. the name says it all: politically incorrect means everything that would be considered out of the acceptable within a normal conversation for example, and that doesn´t necessary include politics at all
I could agree with you If you gave more reasons, but those reasons are shit
>_______ is neither a hobby, nor is discussion of it particularity fun as people take it too seriously.
fill the blank with the theme of some other boards and see if it fits there or not
Science?
Finances?
should we delete those boards because it doesn´t fit your definition?
