Serious question I'm asking, why are blue boards even needed anymore? The only point of a blue board to begin with was that so porn wasn't allowed. However as the years have gone on the point of a blue board is becoming more and more moot. First off porn will get spammed on blue boards like /v/ and /tv/ no matter what happens. It even happens on /sp/ as well. If you ban the people spamming porn they'll just restart their router and do it all over again. Secondly, this is an 18+ website, and yet moot seemed to forget about that. I guess maybe he thought people would be browsing 4chan at work or in public, but seriously why are you browsing 4chan in public to begin with?
The point is, blue boards should be a thing of the past now. Porn should be allowed to be posted on certain boards like /v/ and /a/ without consequence. The rules need to become laxer on this.
That's exactly why there are blue and red boards in the first place. If you hate porn, look away from the red boards and go to the blue ones. Your suggestion is retarded. I'm 25 years old and I don't feel like looking at porn all the fucking time. I'll look at it when I WANT to look at it.
>First off porn will get spammed on blue boards like /v/ and /tv/ no matter what happens
The problem here is that you're browsing /v/ and /tv/. You must be a pretty big fan of the cuckold porn spam if you're still browsing /tv/ in particular.
In my opinion, 4chan should have more rules and ban more people for disobeying more increasingly arbitrary rules until the userbase decreases in size enough that a thread can last more than 11 minutes before 404ing.
So yes, not only should there be blue boards, but /b/ should be a blue board.
Just look at /r/ and /gif/. Porn wasn't forbidden, so literally every single fucking thread was about porn, and it destroyed the purpose of the board so thoroughly, a worksafe version had to be created. I imagine the quality of /b/ would skyrocket if porn wasn't allowed.
I think of my home boards if porn were allowed:
> /o/ would become PIX OF SEXY GIRLS WITH CARS.
>/fit/ would be SEXY ATHLETIC CHICKS
>/n/ would be HOT CHICKS ON BIKES
>/k/ would be HOT GIRLS SHOOTING GUNS
And fuck that desu senpai.
porn distracts from the actual discussion of whatever the topic at hand is. Not to mention, there are already a thousand porn boards. If you want to post porn, do it there.
>the only people who will post porn on those boards are shitposters
>we should allow porn on those boards
so you want to allow porn posts on those board so shitposters can shitpost?
making /b/ blue would be hilarious.
You're a messy person, with very little thought for others if you want it everywhere. nobody said 4chan had to be full of jackasses. And cut the "normie" crap. Don't bother bringing it up, it makes you look paranoid. You're just rude and don't care about anyone other than yourself. It doesn't look like 18+ behavior to me at all.
This as well. It's a huge distraction from anything that isn't about the discussion of porn, and even nudity in general often leads to straight up porn. It's a distraction, it isn't needed or important, and some people simply don't want it. When you get down to it, there are more reasons to keep it away from most boards, than to include it.
We're all grown ups here, right? So why is it so difficult to have extremely basic organization?
Why don't we just remove every board except /b/? If you don't want to see it all the other shit, just ignore it.
That's exactly right. I like the idea of /b/ being a place for random discussion, but since there are no restrictions about what can be posted, when I go there I see a bunch of stuff I'd rather not see. There are some situations where these rules are good to have. I'd love a worksafe /b/ so I could enjoy that kind of board without potentially running into, say, a horse penis.
>be at work

No thanks, I still want to get paid to shitpost desu senpaitachi
It's all about people who can't control themselves. I swear, something about NSFW content attracts the most selfish people I have ever witnessed. You have boards for what you want, so leave other people alone.
If porn is spammed non-stop, then you start deleting the threads its getting spammed in. If porn is posted here and there its fine. If a porn is thread is made that is blatant shitposting, then it gets deleted
You ignore the fact that some people simply don't have to want to deal with the images and the discussion that always follows said images.
Why is it so impossibly difficult to not post it?
Is this a "normalfag" thing to you?
Do you legitimately believe that NSFW content actually scares dummies away, and not the opposite? That kind of stuff brings in so many of the people on /b/ and /trash/ that you hate, it's ridiculous.
I do not want it.
I have boards that have what I want.
You have boards for what you want.
You are pushing ME out, just because you have an itchy trigger finger for things your penis literally gets a raise out of, on a board that kind of content really doesn't need to be a part of. If that's not selfish, then I need to thoroughly read the entire 2016 encyclopedia, and multiple dictionaries.
>is it from a non hentai official anime/manga
>if yes it's allowed
So if something is from a non-Hentai official game, why can it not be posted on /v/? If I post a bare nipple from a game I can be banned.
What about non-Hentai official material on /tg/? Why can't I post pics of Daemonettes from Warhammer 40k, or scans of some tabletop books that have nipples? Hell, what about non-porn official screencap from television and film on /tv/? There's a lot of HBO shows showing breasts now, and movies have had topless scenes for years.
Why maintain a policy on only one board while enforcing the rules on all the others?
hiro specifically allowed it on /a/. Maybe now that enough time has passed to determine whether or not that system is working, if you send feedback the administration would consider allowing it on /v/
also you need to spoiler nsfw content on /a/ iirc.
Hiro did not make some special exception that never existed before, he held the line on something that was cleared up in like 2007. There are some official manga that occasionally or frequently have nips, but are not hentai i.e no sex acts, dicks etc. The same is not true for video games besides fan mods. Fan art of animu/manga chars with nips is not allowed on /a/ for the same reason those game mods aren't - they're just made by random horny guys, not legit mangaka or game studios.
Furthermore despite the special case ruling you barely ever see tits on /a/. The majority of series that even get close to it typically censor, just not all of them depending on the magazine. So despite people on /qa/ going "it's not fair hurr" /a/ actually hardly takes advantage of it anyway; on most days or even for weeks at a time you would never know (spoilered) tits were even allowed under certain conditions because there are so few cases it applies.
>tldr tits on /a/ = mountains out of molehills ruling commonly misinterpreted outside of there
>Why maintain a policy on only one board while enforcing the rules on all the others?
Favoritism, and the fact that the Nips have far different views on what constitutes pornographic nudity.
>There are some official manga that occasionally or frequently have nips, but are not hentai i.e no sex acts, dicks etc.
>The same is not true for video games
But that's literal bullshit.
>Nips have far different views on what constitutes pornographic nudity.
That's fairly hypocritical when most of this website's userbase is from the US, and the fact that the servers are hosted in the US.
>Why maintain a policy on only one board while enforcing the rules on all the others?
Favourism and because of the userbases. If you give /v/ a inch for anything, they'll take a yard and a lot of other boards are the same. You rarely seen actual nsfw content on /a/ and most of it actually will be in manga threads, as that's were the majority of it comes from. /qa/ constantly screams about how its unfair and how its disgusting to see nsfw content when you aren't fapping, but the simple fact is, it was wanted literally for the purpose of discussing things and its not abused.
People don't even post shit in sadpanda threads unless they censor them as a mod has years ago came in and requested they not post that shit otherwise they will have to ban them. You have to ask yourself, if a mod came in to x board and requested reasonably for people to not post something certain because its against the rules, would they comply or throw a bitchfest?
Mods would never come into a thread on any other board. They'd just delete it and go back to posting on /a/.
This favoritism has to go. /a/ is an irrelevant board yet its the only board that the mods pay attention to. They're so out of touch its ridiculous.
>b...but /v/ is bad! They'd just abuse it!
You can't say that because it's never been tried. The mods have cultivated a hostile relationship with every board that isn't /a/, so you shouldn't be surprised that every other board doesn't give a shit about them. You have to give respect to get it, and this kind of gross favoritism only shows that the mods don't deserve anything but contempt from non-weebs.
You know everyone shouts about drowning in porn but I never seem to see /r9k/ flooded with porn in spite of it being red.
Not advocating for what OP is saying, but I think everyone might be overreacting.
Drowning in porn was moots reasoning, newfag. This is something you should already know. moot was always incredibly vocal about it, especially on /b/, that not everything needs to be fucking porn.
If you want an example, since /r9k/ was a robot experiment board and isn't that fast, please refer to >>>/r/ >>>/gif/ and >>>/b/ All three got drowned out with porn, so much two of them got sfw splits. If you allowed actual porn on discussion boards, a good portion of your posts will proceed to be people being dicked. This isn't some random speculation, its the simple truth and it doesn't take a genius to realize that is what will happen. While you can't post porn, you can post pic related and no one will give two shits.
Fuck off degenerate.
Anywhere porn is allowed it dominates, and nothing interesting is allowed any room.
Just look at /b/, it's supposed to be the "anything goes" board, but because they allow porn there it's 90% porn and 10% YLYL, cucks sharing pics of their gf's and other general cancer.
What they should do is double down on the rules and delete anything remotely erotic from blue boards, it has no place there, attracts the worst kind of newfags and infects everything.
>and delete anything remotely erotic from blue boards, it has no place there
Fuck off you retarded newfag. The blue board system is only there to stop porn dumping, nothing else. It's ironic for you to say that with your image as well.
Kill yourself, retard. There isn't a single board drowning in erotic content or having any discussion snuffed out by it. Not even /a/, which has the content official allowed, doesn't get drowned out. In-fact, nsfw and lewd images are incredibly few in posting. You are pulling shit out of your arse as your a upset faggot. There is nothing wrong with fetish posting.
No, you are cancer, newfag.
>the purpose of discussing things
Like what? What is actually discussed when a pair of breasts hang out for no reason outside of fan service? What SFW conversations are held? That's right. It's all about just commenting on how "Them tiddies look great!" The discussion it brings, isn't SFW. The very mindset that comes into play when many people see a breast in most situations, is something very different from what the board is made for. The divide between NSFW and SFW is there to separate images and discussions. The mindset involved and invited when discussing content designed for sexual arousal, is different from what the colour classification of the board is about. Sexual NSFW content, is content designed to sexually arouse the viewer (the legal definition of pornography). If a situation in anime calls for a nipple or two in a logical, official, and when not specifically designed-for sexual arousal, context, it should be allowed. There are times when female breasts are not considered sexual, it just isn't very often. Now that I think of it, it's really not surprising that many people on 4chan have a hard time telling the difference. A lot of people here have never had a job and/or many of them are underaged. And to top it all off, 4chan is seen by many as a dumping ground where anything goes.
Eroticism is almost always NSFW.
Your post has more insults than refutation in it, and shows a general lack of knowledge of what is and is not acceptable in the average North American work environment.
Please for the love of god lurk the fuck moar. No one gives a shit about the normalfag meaning of worksafe or the American work environment. I don't see how its so hard to understand. NONE OF THAT APPLIES TO THIS SITE. 4chan, is globally nsfw. The only purpose of the blue board system is to stop porn dumping, NOTHING ELSE. Both moot and the fucking mods have said this and recently hiro basically declared it on fucking /a/ as well. The global rules aren't meant to be taken literally, they are intentionally vague and how they are enforced variates board to board depending on its userbase and board culture.
No one gives a shit about erotic content, because its fucking everywhere and getting upset about it when the content of most peoples posts are 10x worse shows alot about you as a person. Erotic content is globally alowed, as long as it isn't for the purpose of shitposting. The banners have erotic content, the ads have erotic content, the posts have erotic content and the fucking images posted have erotic content. It's everywhere. However, none of it is 'porn', you know, the hardcore kind were people get dicked. Because that's what the rules are there to stop, not pic related. On pic related, despite it having a loli being fiddled with, it contains important plot points.
There is tons of discussion to have about anime tiddies, even if its fucking fetish posting, its actually allowed here. Go somewhere else if that bothers you, not change the way this place has ran since forever, normalfag.
>If a situation in anime calls for a nipple or two in a logical, official, and when not specifically designed-for sexual arousal, context, it should be allowed.
>muh if it isnt deep mature and intellectual it shouldnt be posted
Please remember where the fuck you are and kill yourself.
4chan isn't meant to be serious or shitposting, it sits in the middle as a fun place for discussing your hobbys. Stop trying to change things because you don't like it, normalfag.
>oh no hes proved me wrong how am i going to get out of this instead of admitting im fucking wrong
>i know ill call him a ban evading troll im sure that will work
You're a fucking idiot.
You are right, this case is closed, and its that you are a fucking idiot troll who thinks the site should change to cater to their stupid needs.
>There is tons of discussion to have about anime tiddies, even if its fucking fetish posting, its actually allowed here. Go somewhere else if that bothers you
No, it's a blue board, it is the shitposting that should go away not me
No, it isn't shitposting. It has been apart of the site since very early on in the sites life. It is apart of the site culture. So, yes, YOU should leave, not it you stupid normalfag. Please lurk the fuck moar and realize the blue boards are only meant to stop porn posting, not other content. If GR 3 wasn't in place, I could post fucking gore on every board, as that's how the rules worked. You'd know this if you weren't a idiot who has only been here for less than 3 years and never bothered to actually lurk and learn shit. The rules aren't meant to be taken literally and how they are enforced depends on board to board. That's why you can post official nsfw content from non-h work on /a/, but can't do so on other boards. Said thing was also officially mod approved since like, what was it, fucking 2007?
This discussion is pointless anyway, as it has been had on fucking /q/ tons of times and on /a/ the other month and every-time the conclusion is for people like you to fuck off.
I like how you sneakily made this into a discussion about what is instead of what should be, which is what I started with.
Though I doubt it was intentional and you're just a retard, but if on purpose I'm impressed.
Also your picture doesn't help your case. All he says is that accepting some nudity is a necessary evil due to the frequency of it in anime/manga.
And I am cool with that. If someone posts a picture that happens to have some nudity then it can't be helped.
But a lot of cancerous faggots pretty much do soft-core porn dumps, and that should not be allowed.
>But a lot of cancerous faggots pretty much do soft-core porn dumps
This doesn't happen as much as you want to think and there isn't anything wrong with those pictures when its not used for dumping or shitposting.
> is a necessary evil due to the frequency of it in anime/manga.
He's not saying its a needed evil, but something that would be stupid to not allow. It is also only about *nudity* not lewds and other nsfw content. Because said content is already allowed. No one actually wants nudity or porn on boards if it isn't official. Allowing unofficial content officially is a great way to kill everything. However, with the exception of both /q/ and /qa/ (which after deciding to go back and read some of the /q/ threads for nostalgia sake I've realized how 1:1 /qa/ and /q/ are), literally no one gives a shit about lewd content and has never been a problem unless its being spammed or used for shitposting purposes. There is no reason for any of this to change, because it doesn't get in the way of anything and banning it is just removing legitimate images for no fucking reason.
Except, you are the one closing your fucking eyes ignoring what I've said. NO ONE is defending the posting of actual porn of people being dicked, you retard.
>No one actually wants nudity or porn on boards if it isn't official.
I've already posted ton of 'nsfw' content in this very fucking thread with my posts, yet it hasn't detracted from the discussion at all nor has it offended or upset anyone.
>NO ONE is defending the posting of actual porn of people being dicked, you retard.
Porn shouldn't be allowed downright. But you shouldn't track down on people for having a fucking nipple show up on a pic. /a/ is more lax about that, but /v/ is shitty about it
And like you said, posting in public, phones, work.
That's the real issue going on here. It both diminishes any discussion there is to be had.
If it happens every time, why do people bother rekting them? It clearly doesn't accomplish what you want them to. Rekting a weebshitter is basically the same thing as politely asking them to shit up the thread with anime pics. We need to adjust our approach. We keep doing the same thing over and over and it isn't working.
Damn, this meme has been pretty ruined at this point. The whole point of it was to have a face and a word or two that matched that face, to explain the emotion the face is meant to convey. This just takes it and puts a whole bunch of text for no reason. It's no different from an average screenshot. People just have no idea what they're doing anymore.
It is it to prevent a degeneration into porn threads, because 4chan is constantly horny and finds excuses to post porn on all boards.
It also might have something to do with advertising.
