>>423684 it was just for replying to threads that you didn't want to bump. for example, if someone asks for sauce on something, you might sage the thread while providing them with sauce, as the thread has no need to be bumped once sauce has been provided. Or the OP of said hypothetical thread may sage the thread while posting a "thank you" reply.
people using it to express displeasure is why it was removed. When you use it to express displeasure, people will respond to your post, bumping the thread more than necessary without contributing to the thread at all.
>>423975 No, (You)s are often craved by attention whores/trolls. They don't care if the reply is positive or negative. To them, the reply itself justifies their time spent here. "Someone replied to me! I'm not 100% worthless!"
>>423674 I sage all the time. I'm using sage right now. People on this site are simply not mature enough to handle visible sage because they all think it's a way of "downvoting" a thread. Yes, isn't that ironic. For all the accusations of Reddit that are thrown around these days, the site used to be MORE like Reddit when visible sage was a thing. See posts like >>423690 for proof that it was considered a downvote.
>>424042 >bringing everyone down to the level of retards We can do it reddit!
The website ran fine for years with visible email/sage, subject on replies, unstripped images, no catalog, etc. And there's nothing wrong with reminding people not to bump a certain thread, if they reply with whining it means they're subhumans and can be ignored.
>>424288 >It's called technological advancement. Yet we still use paper forms and other none computer legacy things. Is nothing wrong with keeping the old stuff along with advances. At minimum some kind of checkbox should be added in so the ignorant users of the site actually know it is still a feature. Though my personal preference would be sage to be default and you have to actually put in something to actually bump the thread.
>>424042 I tripcode all the time. I'm using a tripcode right now. People on this site are simply not mature enough to handle visibly tripcodes because they think it's a way of establish a "persistent internet identity". Yes, isn't that Ironic. For all the accusations of Reddit that are thrown around these days, the site used to be MORE like Reddit when visible tripcodes were a thing. See posts like >>>/r9k/26045076 for proof that it was considered a persistent internet identity.
HURRR DURRRAAA HERP just because a feature can be tied to reddit, has antecdotal proof, and can be abused by shitheads doesn't mean it isn't a viable addition to the site or that it was justified in being removed in the first place.
>>424873 Then why are trip codes(or even more ontop of your point) secure tripcodes still on the site? Infact >forced tripcodes fulfills all the same functions as tripcodes AND anonymous with infinetly less shitposting potential
>>424885 >Then why are trip codes(or even more ontop of your point) secure tripcodes still on the site? So that we can filter out wich namefags we don't like ourselves. Putting visible sage again is just opening a can of worms.
