redpill me on this board.
>>
>>432119
all you need to know is in the 5 or 6 complaint threads about /a/ in the /qa/ catalog.
>>
>>432119
It's pretty much /v/ with an elitism complex

/a/ for inv/a/sions
>>
/a/ for 7 years and I can tell you that /a/ simply does not like anime.
>>
>>432119
This is coming from someone who's been there since 2007, it used to be the best place to discuss anime and /a/ were xenophobia except for certain boards like /k/. Then moot left and /a/ changed drastically, they started to have no self respect and went on to shitpost on other boards. I blame the faggots who stopped telling gaia to fuck off and switched on to hate reddit, gaia was the real problem hiding on /a/ and secretly replacing us.
>>
>>432208
do people really believe someone shitposting in another board would just tell which board does he come from? come on
>>
>>432226
They really do shitpost on other boards but I know what you're saying, I've seen people getting mad at anime posting thinking someone who uses an anime image = /a/, it's just stupid.
>>
>>432208
It's very obvious why this is happening now. They are very nervous about losing influence now that moot is gone. They're actively shitposting on other boards so that they can claim that this is an "anime website".

Anime and /a/ are slowly dying.
>>
>>432144
Hardly, /a/ has standards. Its users basically built a fence of common expectations to make it so the usual 4chan meta does not apply to there. Shitty memes like Pepe and drakeposting are deleted on sight. Blatantly off topic shit is too, or at least is intended to in obvious threads (mods miss it sometimes).

Basically /a/ is the only high traffic topical board that actually functions relatively well. /a/ shitposting is acually usually about /a/ material, and if people want to force non-/a/ stuff on there they are typically shooed off. This is probably why moot himself said it's the best board. It isn't close to perfect, but no board is.

The thing is most other big boards being non topical excuses them from having standards to exercise. This is how r9k fell into the hole it's in; no one said it -can't- be an emo faggot self pity board. On the other hand some big boards are just not on /a/'s standard.. If /pol/ users were more like /a/'s attitude they would not tolerate conspiracy shit, retarded shit like flat earth or kek-god meme magic, or just too off-topic shit like flat out economics, current events, social media etc. The issue is that there are boundaries where you are way out of how things relate to politics, and they are miles past that boundary and don't care because they only see that lax moderation as an excuse to infuse everything with their furthest-right shilling.
>>
>>432248
>very nervous about losing influence
This is how you know /a/ is composed of different people now, before /a/ used to tell the rest of 4chan to fuck off, anytime someone new came along they would tell them to fuck off or lurk more. Anime is growing in the west it isn't dying and /a/ just changed. Mods are too docile since 2015, at this point it's just better to leave /a/ alone and let it play out.
>>

Yes, it does. You posting some unfunny shit meme not even from this site yo
indicates that you yourself fundamentally don't get what 4chan standards even are, let alone /a/'s. If you try to deflect your faggotry going "b-but I was posting that ironically" that doesn't excuse it at all.

a.) Kinomod is still around
b.) Nipplemod incident shows /a/ definitely has a spine and sticks up for itself
c.) Shitty off topic threads are far more often than not deleted quickly; what else are mods supposed to do? They are not community guides, but rather guardrails for quality.
>>
>>432484
>Kinomod is still around
I keep hearing this but there's no proof other than a mod posting with a picture of kino like 2 or 3 times
>shows /a/ definitely has a spine and sticks up for itself
It doesn't matter how much /a/ changes, that was for sure to happen.
>guardrails for quality
Shitty off topic threads are on almost every day some get deleted instantly others survive for 200-300 posts without spamming, I'm not blaming the mods but rather the anons who take those threads seriously. Mods do their job it's just I want them to go the extra mile like they used to do years ago. Pic related is something I heard recently that they did, they should do it more often.
>>
>>432527
The few times he posted he said very Kinomod like things like "feel free to tell people to lurk". If it isn't him it's a spiritual successor, but I kind of doubt someone else like him would want to masquerade as someone else rather than use a different series to put a connection with. I mean if I were a mod I'd post with Hidamaris or something.

That only shows you don't actually use /a/. Oddly enough it's the crossboarders posting anime outside of /a/ doing tilde~ shit and generally acting far more like faggots than actual /a/ users. I think it's more like you see /a/ rejects chased off of there and think that's /a/.

It's also clear you looked at the catalog and think you know the board. If you actually go into threads you will often (but not always) find actual discussion.

Maybe your argument would be valid if /v/ was for Japanese games only. Only the Jap side of /v/ is comparable to /a/.
>>
>>433574
It has never been and it never will be, the key difference being that most people know to keep out of other fandoms' threads. Even Naruto gets peaceful threads nowadays. On /v/, you have people like Xbox fans shitting up Nintendo threads and vice-versa. Once in an odd while you'll have something like a KyoAni shitpost magnet, but otherwise, the discussion is always peaceful in threads that don't have opinionated OP posts.

Not at all, but it drives my point home that even for the most divisive series on /a/, there is no type of /v/-style shitflinging even there.

I used to think they were a bunch of elitist snobs, but then I started frequenting it and found that there's can be some pretty good discussion between the waifu threads and the sakura fish. They do need to ease up a little on the "no source" rule.
>>433423
This is also completely correct.
>>
>>433624
>They do need to ease up a little on the "no source" rule.
No we don't. Like, 90% of source requests can be found using the inline source functions or by reading the fucking thread. A good portion of the rest can be found using Regex, imgops or by tag or quote searching. There is very few images that can't be sourced using the tools available and those sort of things generally won't have people up your arse or will already be sourced. The argument is pointless now that /wsr/ is added. Instead of making a useless post, just save the image and request on /wsr/. Someone will answer it there and you won't be shitting up /a/ with garbage.
>>
>>433624

>The Good
It's the most active and diverse English-speaking anime forum. This has given it a lot of influence over Western anime culture over the last decade. It's also the only English-speaking anime forum around where you can post about some random anime from 1985 and potentially get a discussion going.

>The Bad
It's full of children who've been there for like 2 years and think by being unnecessarily rude and vitrolic they are fashioning themselves as "genuine" members of the community who are "protecting" the board from being overrun from "outsiders." Contrary to what some ignorant or disingenuous people would have you believe, it was not always this bad. Anyway, as a result, the community has taken on this old /jp/ (which was trash too) kind of personality. This is compounded by the fact that mods abuse their powers to push the agenda and mold the community in the way they want it to be, and so they've legitimize a lot of the actions some users like to take.

Most discussion doesn't have much depth or creativity. At least 75% of the posters really can't discuss anime past a level of "I like it, " "I hate it," or "this girl is cute." If they try, they're usually just restating something the hivemind decided was true. The board doesn't really produce amusing or meaningful content anymore.

There's always been too much low-quality fetish/waifu-type discussion (and at least gone are the days of chainthreads of pure image dumps), but nowadays multi-layered discussion is often at risk of being moderated, specifically if it bothers /a/ orthodoxy.
>>
>>433566
I'm from the board and he's right. Hardly any of the threads have discussion pertaining to the series. It's mostly waifufagging.

Funny thing is Naruto threads, the once despised and outlawed series, has more worthwhile discussion than the rest of the board.
>>
>>432144
/v/ has the stereotype of being a place where you go to 1. hate videogames and 2. discuss anything at all except videogames. People have called it /b/ 2.0. That's certainly not /a/.

>>432441
It usually means

>>
>>433397
>we like anime!
>but only anime that isn't popular
That's bullshit and you know it. Evangelion, SnK, KLK, SAO, Onepunch Man and a lot of other popular shows have had a following on /a/. You probably got called a pleb for liking Naruto or DBZ or you just can't handle the bantz.
>>
>>>/a/136959611

Perfect example of how difficult actual discussion is. They'd rather OP bait them somehow before they deem the thread worthy of replying to. Even when they do reply it's hardly serious.

You're retarded. The website has always been like this. OP is a conversation starter, not a fucking topic setter. You can't just go 'x thread' or 'i like this what did you think' and actually seriously fucking expect people to give a fuck about your thread. That might work in traditional forums and the like, but not here, generalfag. If you want people to talk about something, you have to give them something to want to engage. You don't walk up to strangers going 'i like x' and expect them to talk to you. If you aren't willing to put the effort into atleast trying to make people want to post in your thread, whether its through baiting, trolling or a actual question or a decent opinion, your thread is probably shit and you are probably an idiot not worth talking to.

It's clear you are new to the site and probably use mostly generals, because your mentality is a generalfag mentality.
>>
>>433723
You most certainly can start a thread with pretty much nothing and get substantial discussions in the end. It happens all the time on literally every 4chan board, including /a/. If you want to increase your probability of getting meaningful content, then yea, it would probably be worthwhile to start the thread with it. But it is not strictly necessary.

Part of the problem also is that often you put work into a thread and people don't respond, and thus the thread goes to waste. So often it is worth seeing there are others who care to discuss it before putting in work.
>>
>>433724
It happens, granted, but empty OPs are obnoxious as fuck, and meaningful and worthwhile threads from them are pretty rare. Well, no, that's not the case on say /pol/, /tv/, /b/, or /v/, where you can probably just say two words and get a 300+ thread, but they're different (ie, it's still the case that it's rare that a worthwhile thread is produced, but people shitpost just cause in those). It's not the case in say, /fa/, /ck/, /an/, /out/, /lit/, etc. I'd say /a/ is inbetween.
>>
>>433723
>The website has always been like this.
And guess what, fucktard, the results of this have diminished over time. Longtime users are almost trained to either start a thread on petty bait or not start one at all. They know what to expect, either worthless shitflinging because he had to bait people into posting, or a dead thread.

>It's clear you are new to the site and probably use mostly generals, because your mentality is a generalfag mentality.
And your opinion is immediately deemed trash. If you can't examine someone's point without resorting to "you're new - you just don't get it" then you don't have much of a point yourself.

Yes because regardless of what I say you'll just dismiss is with "well, you're new!".

I've been reading most of the /a/ threads here since people are finally talking about my homeboard and hardly any of it mentions sauce begging or other issues newfags usually complain about. So you're either not serious or you just want an easy way out of discussing the board on a critical level.
>>
>>433725
Those two-word threads that hit bump limit on such boards often work out because someone else probably hijacked them into some stupid off-topic shit, and the board meta is that it's fine to veer off into whatever they feel like if given the chance. That doesn't really happen so much on /a/ though.

If it's a one or two word thread that maxes out for a reason besides off-topic or blog shit, it's probably because the subject is basically a general thread and simply isn't called that. If you time it right you can just say "trump" on /pol/ and get a thread that maxes out pretty fast. Same with "undertale" on /v/. That's because they're hot topics on those boards.

/a/ doesn't tend to have a particular hot topic that everyone will drop what they're doing to jump in on. Or rather I mean not something that will always work for weeks/months at a time like my /v/ or /pol/ examples. Rather things travel in waves and crowds surge and leave for individual shows as new episodes air and then peak discussion follows for a day or two. If you make an irrelevant thread for some old show most people saw many years ago, but they'd rather be in a thread for a brand new show, it's like trying to get someone to miss their bus/train to go eat at a hot dog stand or something. If they even notice you, they'll go "eh, if I didn't have somewhere else to be soon then maybe, but not now".
>>
>>433768
Sorry for the laconic reply. I've been following a couple of threads here as well. I am just genuinely surprised at the tones of these meta discussions. I want to believe that it's not a single poster with a lot of free time starting these /a/ metathreads over and over.

I tend not to take trolls seriously, but it's still hard for me to accept that young posters may genuinely don't know anything about what generated the lurk moar culture, and current posters are generally self-aware in a way that simply didn't exist in the past.

This is not even about /a/ anymore. I'm rambling like an old man and probably it's just time for me to move on like moot did.

I like how you just completely made something up and felt like you made a good point. If you don't go on other boards, fine, but don't embarrass yourself by saying complete lies.

Such threads work because 4chan users are by and large opinionated. So you ask someone to give their opinion, and they're liable to give something that will provoke someone else to respond to them and for them to go back and forth. It actually wouldn't even be relevant if it were to become meta/off-topic or not (though, it doesn't. That's a complete lie), because the same principle applies.

And I have no idea which /a/ you post on, but the same principle pretty much applies there too. The main difference is that /a/ is less active and less opinionated since half the people there aren't actually interested in argument and just want to circlejerk waifu/fetish nonsense.
>>
>>433786
>complete lies

Are you new to 4chan or did you not see all the giant threads /v/ has had in the past that were seriously, utterly not video games? That's the fucking truth. Shit like pizza tip threads at first started inside of other threads. Then people started to look for OPs that could be shepherded towards such off topic stuff. It was only after it got to the point that people actually were making devoted threads just for that off-topic stuff that mods started to intervene. /v/ is actually still like that all the time, they just hide it better. Do you yourself know the board?

Also probably at least half of /pol/ is very much only tangentially on-topic, and it's been like this for a while. Things like flat earth or meme magic threads maxing out are simply not. They love stupid stuff like that, or at least some people there clearly do, and their board meta (somehow) is it's fine because you don't see any even remotely united protest against all the tangential stuff /pol/ harbors; people trying to remind the board such things are just shouted down as some kind of shill, or reddit or something just for not wanting to host blatant off-topic.
>>
>>433810
You're going off-course here. The fact that off-topic threads exist doesn't mean that any thread with an "empty" OP that generates discussion must have been because of off-topic posts, as you so ignorantly (or at least disingenuously) claimed.

Besides, /v/ doesn't veer too much off-topic nowadays. It's not "hidden" better. It just doesn't happen to the extent that it used to because of more moderation and natural changes in culture.
>>

>Rather things travel in waves and crowds surge and leave for individual shows as new episodes air and then peak discussion follows for a day or two. If you make an irrelevant thread for some old show most people saw many years ago, but they'd rather be in a thread for a brand new show

This is pretty interesting, because people on most boards love talking about the history of their hobby. We had to make an entire board for Retro Games, /tg/ waxes nostalgic about RPGs from the 70s and 90s, /co/ has threads about comics and cartoons from the 40s on the reg, but /a/ seems to just want to talk about what's airing now.

They're a lot like /tv/ in that regard. They're very much a board that celebrates blind consumption. They don't like anime, they like being part of the /a/ anime viewing community.
>>
>>433930
>They don't like anime, they like being part of the /a/ anime viewing community.
Exactly. I've been pointing this out for years. This has led to a culture where you have people watching nearly everything that airs just to be "in the know" despite not having genuine interest in 90% of them. Sites like MAL and AniDB have compounded the issue by giving people e-points for watching anime. I'm glad I grew out of that because I did it for awhile. You appreciate anime much more when you watch just what interests you.
>>
>>433940
/a/ shelves most (not all) mediocre or worse series on the shelf after they're done for the same reason most people don't spend too much of their free time aimlessly reminiscing about that time they were playing some video game in favor of discussing what they are playing or looking forward to - fresh content is more interesting.

It is also rather entitled to demand that people stop discussing something they are actually interested in in favor of a boring retread on an old show. They have to actually like that old show a lot, and/or it's a slow day for current-season affairs, to get really engaged in a rehash. Usually such threads are boring and feel forced by the OP who is the only excited person in the thread.
>>
>>434015
But that's literally wrong. People are capable of talking about what old videogames they liked or disliked, and what those games did right or wrong all the time. Again, there's an ENTIRE BOARD for it. The fact that you're incapable of being able to get excited about something you actually like in favor of embracing the hype machine and flavors of the month show that you're just as bad as the type of person who only plays western AAA games. Those types of people are derided on every other board on the site as not being real fans of the hobby or medium. Only /a/ celebrates ignorance.

Just like Call of Duty/Fallout bros you don't care about the actual industry. You just care about being a part of a collective.

I've always found it interesting how /v/ is able to talk about and celebrate game mechanics in even wholly mediocre games, while /a/ has a knee jerk negative reaction towards any kind of narrative criticism towards anime. /a/ really is a board full of normalfags; trying to talk to an average moviegoer about movies- they only want to shut off their brain and consume until the next season starts and tells them what merchandise to buy.

If you aren't smart enough to talk without using stupid buzzwords you should really just keep quiet.

>They'd rather OP bait them somehow before they deem the thread worthy of replying to

The fuck am I supposed to do? Say "Yes, Planetes was good." I just bump the thread pointlessly. I go the other way and say "Planetes is shit." I just antagonize OP for no real particular reason and look like an ass.

An OP needs a topic broad enough to hold nuanced opinions, but specific enough to prevent large generalizations from painting an entire picture.
>>
>>434525
We talk about old things plenty enough. Fate is a board series staple. A LOGH thread appears a couple times a month. Every now and then I see a Shinseki Yori thread.

Really, though, beyond this /a/ talks of and about old anime all the time in the more generic OPs. It's not DEEP discussion mind you, but it is there.
>>
>>434549
How can you watch a series and have literally nothing to say besides "it waz gewd"? How fucking low is /a/'s average IQ?
>>
>>434525
Are you implying /v/ is actually good at any of those things? Or that /vg/ isn't also full of shit too?

You try so very hard to win some online argument but drum up a fantasy land /v/ and some evil caricature of /a/ to do it. Neither of your assessments are that accurate. You also must be the only person on /qa/ or even 4chan who thinks /v/ is actually decent at something besides alarmist and console war shitposting.
>>
>>434605
>I have never used /v/: the post

Hello /a/
>>
>>434605
Especially on older series where the main controversies in discussion were cleared up long ago, few care to put in the energy to waste on long winded analysis because we aren't trying to prove anything or outdo each other. There is no contest to be a "professional" anime reviewer on /a/ because /a/ is fully aware how stupid that makes you look.

Perhaps something most of greater 4chan had lost touch with but /a/ generally maintains as an old vanguard, is that you do not need to treat everything here seriously and that you are here just to have fun rather than try to prove anything. If I put in the same energy into analyzing a decade old anime as a PhD dissertation, out of some vague notion of needing to prove myself to people like you anonymously, the idiot is me. Not the guy who says "it was good". That guy is smart because he gets his point across without needing to waste hours of his and your life to do it. If you cross examined why he thinks it is good you may, only may, get him to open up more into specifics. But generally you know at the core you were looking for " was it good" in your answers.

If you need to be spoonfed analysis then that, to me, means you somehow cannot see for yourself what is obvious to everyone else, so obvious that it is useless to regurgitate unless pressed to do so.
>>
>>433588
Naruto threads on /a/ have posters just copying and pasting old posts just to keep their shitty general alive and even copying and pasting the same replies to those old posts.

It is nothing but an endless circlejerk and they have no problem linking their /a/ threads to the same cancerous generals on /v/ and /vg/ and talking about a Naruto video game on /a/.
>>
>>434615
>weebcucks think that discussion is spoonfeeding

holy shit
>>
There seems to be the opinion that only long-winded post with arguments and valid reasoning is quality post, in which case, was 4chan even meant to maintain this format? I thought it was originally meant more of an anime club, not anime debate club, in which you mostly talk about what's currently going on in your niche hobby and then just share your opinion/post about it, thus huge amounts of character threads and non-topical generals of mostly airing anime, where people just want to share/post pictures and talk about how they like/dislike something, making actual debating and arguing redundant, because most of it just boils down to personal preference to begin with and arguing that "my taste is better than yours", which just incredibly pretentious and arbitrary to begin with (not that I have something against it, I endulge in it on daily basis).
>>
>>434635
>this faggot has zero reading comprehension

You can find plenty of discussion there. That post is far more of explaining that people there aren't trying to pretend to be smart by going overboard analyzing old / irrelevant / shitty anime. Doing so misses the point of what 4chan facilitates - light and rapid discussion. Things like this are why there are character count limits.

Furthermore he adds at the end that basically you don't need to expect or wait for complex chapters of discourse to occur in threads in order to say something yourself. There is no formal structure to threads hence that layout is not necessary to have discussions on 4chan. If you have some detailed thoughts then just fucking plop them out yourself even in a relatively vapid thread, and see if anyone is game to engage you on it.

And we wonder why /a/ is the worst board
>>
>>434665
>light and rapid discussion = shitposting

No. That's not what I said at fucking all. There is a point where you make threads too dense with information and they slow down and become inefficient and drawn-out to where most people leave and it's 2 or 3 people having a debate that most other observers are not even that interested in. Getting too convoluted in discussion easily can derail and/or kill threads.

Like I said 4chan was not designed to run that way. Slow, grinding wall-of-text discussions rambling for days is what forums are very good at; there is plenty of that in the world already so why bring it here. At the same time it is fruitless to give a bunch of 1-2 word replies; in my opinion there should be a minimum char count (for example 50-100) as well as the current maximum, but that's just me.

Again, what a nice retort fuckface. Is this your average post? Is this the best you can do? Is the only thing you are capable of is meaningless buzzwords, memeshit, replys that hold no truth and posts written for the sole purposes of gaining as many (you)'s as possible? If this is, your entire posting carrier is meaningless garbage and not once have you done anything meaningful it in. Even in modern 4chan, which is a memespewing pure shitposting haven, you rank at the bottom of posters. Your posts serve so little purpose, they actually hold less value then genuine cancer. Your existence is meaningless and you can't make a half-decent post even if your life depended on it.

Is your life really that sad? Are you really that sad you've got to spend your time making literal garbage posts on a anime image board that amuse or upset no one, not even you. They just exist for (you)'s. Are you so starved for attention you've got to get (you)'s just to feel even a ounce of happiness? Maybe you should get a hobby, you are on a anime image board after all. I suggest Boku no Pico, it sounds perfect for you. I'm sure you'd love it. It would literally be the most perfect thing in existence for you and it might help you find meaning in life.

Don't forget to kill yourself.
>>
>>434664
You might've missed the point entirely, I'm not even trying to suggest that 4chan is a anime club, but that it was intended to be closer to anime club than anime debate club, which you might dissgree, but merely hanging on term usage that is there merely for analogy that doesn't even try to accurately describe 4chan self, but instead is used to make a point about the intention of the site is quite foolish.

Because it's fucking entertainment. Not even the elevens give two shits to give critical analysis on shit that airs. It's not the purpose. It's made with the intention of being entertainment. The amount of things you can analysis a year could be counted on your hand. There is no point and no one pertically gives a fuck about that shit.

No one does critical analysis of shows, but people do, do it. It just isn't about the show and is about stupid shit, like lesbian physics. The majority of everything interesting to analysis has been said while something is airing and then people screencap it and no one cares to do that discussion again, because its pointless and now boring. Kill yourself.

Not just is anime *sadly* get more popular, this is actually wrong. Because the majority of your translators for anime, manga and lns still reside on /a/. Tumblr does probably hold a 'larger anime community', but that is for casuals who go 'woooooo naruto rasagin *retard run*'. /a/ still holds the majority of the people who provide that content and have anime/manga as a hobby. Keep shitposting normalfag.

No, we understand the medium usually is not asking for it and you look like an idiot for trying to force something from nothing. It doesn't mean we lack the capacity, just that we know it is a wasted effort for many series.

On this subject, FYI things do not have to be intellectually engaging to be entertaining. You also do not need to only enjoy "intelligent" media to be an intellectual. If anything, the correlation goes in reverse somewhat - normal or underachieving people sometimes think they can project some air of smartness by liking "smart" things, and are deathly afraid of being seen as dumb for not doing so. Entertainment media does not by itself make you either smart or dumb, of course. The mental process of being amused is simply not the process of intellectual musing/creativity.
