>>430809 Funny and creative fanbase that feels like a throwback to old school 4chan because it's more of a community, without going overboard into forum faggotry.
/vp/'s success has made me question some of my ideas regarding how 4chan should be structured. I think the people running the site are worried that splitting boards into smaller communities will "reddit-ize" the site, turning everything into smaller and smaller bubbles. And I used to think that way myself before using /vp/ regularly. /his/ is like that too.
That's why I think splitting /tv/ into /tv/ and /film/ would only have a positive effect in the long run. You can't have boards be too small and insular without breeding faggotry, but if they're too large they inevitably turn into derivatives of /b/.
>>431021 Showderp is the only way the board even breaks new ground anymore.
Everything else has already been discussed to death, but the meme machine that is Showderp keeps on churning.
Also you forget the history of it. Before Showderp's time /vp/ was just envelope-pushing furbait and waifufagging. It's still that now, but at least there's a safe haven walled off by ebin /s4s/-tier shitposts.
>>431049 And then from Showderp, it turned from s4s memes to a huge circlejerk. Shitposting is the biggest craze of the threads. There's shitposting about memes, shitposting about tripfags, shitposting about drama, shitposting about the dex, and shitposting incoherently. The main shitposting involves drama due to how many underage kiddies think it's cool to scream "avidraco" at someone whenever they disagree with them.
>>430824 Except for the /film/ meme, this is post is surprisingly accurate. I for one find the Pokemon fan community to be a complete and utter cancer, but /vp/ operates very well and is a quality board entirely because of the passion of these people.
Its small user base and relatively slow post count are large factors in this equation.
