I don't see why people care since it hasn't been an actual board in over a decade.
>>
They also deleted /yg/ and /fk/
>>
>>427918

Because 4chan used to have a lot of history and easter eggs scattered around.
A lot of old sites have pages that almost no one visits but are left up just because they dont take up much space.

The text boards, /fk/, /z/, etc were fun easter eggs that were a reminder of older times.
It's a disturbing trend somewhat recently to just start removing all this stuff for no good reason.

I wouldnt be surprised if the rules page, faq, and archives are all rewritten and have sections deleted soon.

They deleted /z/ literally over a year ago, before Hiro took over. If you wanted to complain you should have done it back then, because now it's too late.

what exactly were these boards, /z/ /fk/ and /yg/? i never saw them
>>
>>429089
For quite a few years before it was deleted, /z/ just took you to a picture of bees on some guy's dick, which is a reference to SomethingAwful. Before that, though, it was apparently another version of /b/, but the difference is a random Anonymous was given administrative power over it. So they could make it look however they want, ban whoever they want, etc. Naturally this only worked because the site was much smaller back then.

The rules page could use a rewrite because half of them are obsolete or never enforced
>Rule 3
There are entire boards dedicated to posting shitposts and racism outside of /b/, like [s4s], /pol/, /r9k/. Instead of exempting those boards from a rule that specifically mentions /b/, it should just mention none or all the boards.

Vaguest rule in existence, just exists to ban people for no reason

The rules should be re-written, same with the FAQ.
GR3 is a damn dinosaur. It needs to be changed.

This board is for answering questions, you blithering idiot.

No mods or admins have ever set a specific topic to this board. It doesn't even have local rules. moot created this board only because he wanted to do a Q&A. This is not /new/ - Spoonfeeding newfags.

Why not bring it back but as an unlisted board, or something?
>>
>>429329
Yeah, that's exactly why the mods created /wsr/. To discourage spoonfeeding because they think it's bad.

Lol.

Rule 17 was made to prevent people from posting images with hidden sound (something popular back in the day)or files,webms have nothing to do with it.

>3 - There are entire boards dedicated to posting shitposts and racism outside of /b/, like [s4s], /pol/, /r9k/. Instead of exempting those boards from a rule that specifically mentions /b/, it should just mention none or all the boards.
/pol/ and /r9k/ are not shitposting boards. For some reason, they're just inhabited by a 95% amount of elitist /b/tards who actually think they're too good for /b/. Both of those boards are out of control and I can't really see them being fixed unless the mods and janitors receive the ability of silentbanning, rangebanning, and these two boards get a dedicated stream of new rule enforcers to deal with the massive amount of retards on it.
>6 - Vaguest rule in existence, just exists to ban people for no reason
No it isn't. It basically means "Boards that aren't /b/ have rules and a board subject. Try to be civil and not be an autistic shitposter". Sadly, cross website posters do seem to think that the entire website is just one, big /b/ where shitposting is encouraged. This is what that rule conveys. It's more or less just a continuation of rule 3.
>7 - I have never seen any deletions bans for announcing sage/report
Then you don't look at the bans page enough (http://4chan.org/bans). Honestly, it doesn't even happen that often. The rule exists to avoid derailment, though. It's very easy to piss everyone in a conversation off by saying you reported something, especially so if that something is not a rule violation.
>8 - Never enforced, this entire board breaks that rule
Make a "mods are fags" post on any board on this website that isn't /b/ and [s4s] by extension, and I will assure you that it will be deleted within 30 minutes.
>10 - People evade filters all the time and nobody gives a shit
Usually it's not such a big enough deal to be reported by other posters over, but I assure you that, if you do report a filter evader, they get their punishment just fine.

>17 - With the introduction of WebMs with sound, part of this rule is obsolete
>Do not upload images containing additional data such as embedded sounds, documents, archives, etc.
Embedded sound in an image is obviously not the entirety this rule covers. This rule exists to avoid the sharing of files. It's possible to hide a highly compressed .7zip file with a lot of CP in a small image. That's just an example of why that rule exists.

Honestly, I think this rule may as well be obsolete because everything negative that could come from embedding files in images should be covered by rule 1.
>Depending on the board, people avatarfag all the time. Arguably tripfagging across threads breaks this rule
Sadly, a lot of avatarfags are ban evaders, hence staff tends to be tempted to not bother with them, as they'll just evade their ban and keep going at it 5 minutes later. It's still very much against the rules, though.
And if using a trip or name across threads would be "using a signature", it would be specifically against the rules right now. After over 10 years of existence, I can assure you this will not change.
>>
>>431639
You don't even need to look at the bans page to see how often rule 7 is enforced. Just go to any 4chan archive (e.g. desustorage.org), and search for deleted posts containing "sage" or "reported".
>>
>>431659
I never thought of that. I've used desustorage for finding other deleted posts, just never thought of this. I will use this in the future. Thank you.

Where else would you get that info? Is googling things just being spoonfed by google? Does Wikipedia just spoonfeed everyone? Are peer reviewed journals really just peer reviewed spoons?
>>
>>431676
>Where else would you get that info?
There are multiple sites that archive 4chan terms and history. ED, KYM, Tanasinn, LurkMoar, etc. It's so fucking easy to learn about 4chan nowadays, that only retards need spoonfeeding.
Jeez, what happened with "lurk more"?
