I'd like to personally thank the janitors that have decided to begin deleting any and all OC threads that have been popping up around 4chan lately.

It's important that we clamp down on things that don't 100% resemble the board topic upon first glance, and that any and all OC creation threads that pop up must absolutely not only be deleted, but the OPs banned for at least a week, lest the various boards suffer under the tyrannical rule of MS Paint and Photoshop for another season.

Remember: taking it easy is fine, as long as it doesn't lead to people having fun and drawing pictures of video game, anime, and or cartoon characters, otherwise chaos will rule the day and our magnitudes of insufferable shitposting might fall way to content creation and merrymaking.

OC is irrelevant.

Just because something is "original content" doesn't make it exempt from the rules.

I could take and post a different picture of my daily bowel movement, that would be original content, but it would still be garbage unfit for anywhere other than /b/. Being original doesn't change anything.

You think that's bad, I've seen people argue here that wanting OC on 4chan means you are a Redditor who wants to rack up karma points by reposting it on /r/4chan or the like.

Original content is what separates us from the content aggregators, son. If you don't like it there's always reddit.

See, that's retarded. We don't need to compete with Reddit. Besides, reddit does produce original content.

Like I said, people concerned about how much "OC" 4chan puts out are just vain twats living vicariously through a website.

No. Content aggregators have been the enemy of content creators since they were called ebaumsworld. This fight is bigger than you know and probably older than you are.

Sigh.... People who need to crusade on behalf of 4chan are newfags who have bought into the cultural identity here.
Nobody needs to feel threatened by reddit. Even moot has a reddit account and did an AMA.

Please, stop trying to play cultural arbiter - you aren't as oldfag as you pretend to be.

People create things specifically to post on Reddit and upload them to imgur. You can also self-post if you want to contribute some text to reddit. I'll just pop on over to the UT sub for an example of the former.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Undertale/comments/43xa9j/i_had_a_bad_time_at_work/

So there you have it. Guy draws his own art, posts it to reddit.

/b/-level original content may indeed be original, but that doesn't mean it belongs outside of /b/. Remember, /b/ is a containment board exactly for your type of template-based memes, macro images and general off topic crap. So go to /b/ and stay there.
>>
>>433818
/b/ is mostly a stupid porn, "my gf" and rolling board. That's it. What was the last worthwhile thing from /b/ that swept over 4chan and made it into various other sites?

Their brain damage led them to be retarded for a while but they're just a vegetable now. Most of them wouldn't know what to do with a template if you showed them. I want them to prove me wrong, but they won't.

Pacha threads were banned? It was pretty stupid to ban them.

Template threads have been a thing for years and years and years.

You know, this Pacha thing would have died out within a week. I've always felt the mods are too quick to make decisions like these. If they just let it run its course, it would end by itself in about a week and everyone would carry on as normal. But when they ban it because there's been too many threads, it just makes the users unhappy.

He's right. OC is irrelevant. The focus on OC came from /b/ newfags originally who thought 4chan was for making memes. Look at most of the boards here or even the FAQ. 4chan is for DISCUSSION. Outside of /i/, /ic/, and things of that nature OC has nothing to do with anything. Look at /a/, for instance. OC has nothing to do with the board topic, it's for discussing content already created by others; in this case anime and manga.

Take /v/. OC has nothing to do with the board topic there either. It's for discussing video games made by other people. OC benefits some board like /tg/ (homebrews, character ideas, etc,), /vg/ (for the game development general), and little places like that, but it's not the central focus. That's a strong misconception based on newfags thinking 4chan was made for epic memes rather than being a discussion board first and random shit popping up from time to time that gets popular.
