I ranked them in terms of shitposting, content created, and benefit to the typical hobby-goer. I decided not to adjest for board size since that is an indicator of quality. (not that it would have helped /lit/ anyway).
>>436297 ...Shit, you're completely right. At least /v/ and /mu/ can eventually identify things that separate a great video game or album from the rest. New rankings: /co/ /v/ /lit/ --quality skip-- /a/ /mu/ /tv/
I just went and checked up on /a/ and /mu/. /a/ at least has manga threads and DJT. /mu/ still has shitposting galore.
>>436325 lol you're right, rated it in order of funny shitposting which i LOVE
/a/ is full of shitposts however they're not funny and just centered around waifu crap /lit/ hardly has shitposting /co/ threads are funny sometimes /tv/ is a fucking meme factory /v/ is good, some boring threads but pretty great but /mu/ holds a special place in my heart
>>436330 ever been to [s4s] desu /mu/ is so nice and wholesome, most of the time. tho sometimes it feels like /tv/. /tv/ and /v/ sometimes feel bitter and mean. but /tv/ sometimes gets these rushes of merriment and funposting. I like those. i can't say i've really been to /co/. all i really know about it is that it produced both /sug/ and /mlp/ so there must be something in the water y'know. it's probably nice. i sometimes like /a/'s shitposts. i guess they're only funny if your'rre into that kinda stuff tho.
i gotta say though that the 'musiqué/jam/musak/etc' and 'cinema/film/flick/etc.' and the 'it's [some year]' threads are absolute meme achievements
sometimes i go on a tour and lurk other boards but i usually just go to [s4s] and /lit/ these days. covers my funposting and srs bsns posting pretty well.
>>436342 holy shit dude nice yeah /v/ is sometimes mean and some of the posters are assholes, same with /tv/ sometimes but /mu/ is a super chill place with funposts galore, and /tv/ is great with the film/flick/kino stuff
/co/ is ok but funposting is harder because of strict mods, i got banned from all boards like 3 times because of a rick and morty bait thread (reddit and memey)
>>436325 /v/ is good for identifying bullshit in games and knows what makes a good storyline & mechanics/controls. They force anyone who loves video games to be critical of games and not just suck the cocks of advertisers.
>>436349 Probably why Undertale rustles their jimmies so much. They can't find anything to criticize so all they can do is baselessly accuse people of shilling. Because apparently it's impossible that a game could be so good that people genuinely love it.
>>436348 >i also like /r9k/ but recently it's been heading towards /soc/shit
You're clearly new to this site. /r9k/ has been that way for years. In the first place it's the reason why /soc/ was created, to try and take that kind of discussion off the board. But board culture cannot be changed that easily.
>>435980 /lit/ even though they constatly spill spaghetti or call perfectly good books memes, which irks me. has no critical sense /co/ because even after the comics world went into the sjw shitter it still remained sorta good /tv/ has decent discussions sometimes but it's too messy for me, too many shitposts in there, also see /lit/ /a/ is definitely sub-par, this rise in elitism is annoying and all they do is post umaru, 2008 impact memes with recent filenames and talk about one punch man. discussion is impossible like in /v/, mostly shit taste /mu/ has a tumblr-core avant-teen audience. a guy noticed my lowest rated artist on RYM where black and kept putting up how much i'm a racist and replied me with mac miller tweets. i'm not racist /v/ despite being messy it comes up with a great percentage of board culture (inb4 muh /b/ 2.0) and lots of OC, which makes me laugh the most. no discussion but good
overall best boards for discussion: /3/, /o/, /out/ worst boards: /b/, /r9k/, /x/ most entertaining boards: /v/, /fit/, [s4s]
1. /lit/: Most reasonable discussion, sadly probably the smartest of these boards. 2. /mu/: Edgy fags that nonetheless at least have good discussions from time to time 3. /co/: Meh 4. /tv/: Shitposting and memes for the most part, but at least people here have reasonable discussions about new shows and movies sometimes. 5. /v/: Contrarian faggots with massive spillover from /a/. Terrible board, hard to have a discussion about anything, nonstop praise of bottom of the barrel fanservice garbage from Japan, incessant whining about the SJW boogeyman and "censorship", more obsessed with NEET politics than video games. 6. /a/: Cesspit, irredeemable, might as well burn it to the ground. Just a bunch of utter wastes fawning over moe anime all day and arguing about dumb shit like who is the cutest. Worst board on 4chan, let alone out of those 6. Impossible to have a decent discussion, 95% shitposting.
/a/ can be decent sometimes /lit/ doesn't have shitposting at all /mu/ has terrible threads most of the time. Although, generals and the sharethreads make the board worth browsing /tv/ has almost 0 discussion of anything, but it makes decent memes /v/ is a fucking pathetic baord. The memes are terrible and the discussions are even worse. /vg/ and /vr/ are better tho. I haven't touched /co/ yet.
>>436661 Every single thread I have been in devolved into smug arguments about who knew more about a given topic and some even devolved into: "How well read can you be, you can't even use a semi-colon properly?" shit (This literally happened in a thread about Orwell, i am not exagerating). II have been in dozens of threads and i found interesting discussion only once. That's fine, most boards don't have interesting discussion, but if you don't have interesting discussion then you have got to have entertaining banter or funny memes or something else to i've some enjoyment to using the board.
I don't like /lit/ at all. It's not entertaining, or interesting or funny. It's intolerable.
/a/ is the place to go for current anime discussion on the internet, they have a solid foundation on the underground industry here, with the big names all posting on /a/, they basically shape the anime underground industry.
/lit/ is almost like /a/, but there are other places where the real discussion happens, it's not like they can have a impact on the underground industry, mainly because it's a new board with an old medium, compared with the rest.
/v/ is a strange place, they have a substantial understanding of the medium compared with the rest of the mainstream internet, but the quality of the board is very poor, with a lot of real shills and off topic threads taking half of the board at times. It only get's third place because it's alternatives are all worse.
The rest is basically on the same level with the rest of the internet.
Because it's a board that requires some level of intelligence and restraint and he's a grade A shitposter. You should have realized this when he listed /pol/, /tv/, and /v/ as the best boards on 4chan. He's basically on team /toilet/.
Best: /co/ - All the genuine love for comics and cartoons and the overall savvy userbase but without the vitriol and xenophobia of other 4chan boards
Good: /a/ and /tv/ - Boards full of dedicated discussion that is a nice mixture of insightful and hilarious. /a/ wins points for its breadth and depth of understanding regarding its subject matter. /tv/ is probably one of the funniest boards on 4chan that consistently produces some of 4chan's best memes and in-jokes.
Worst: /mu/ - it used to be good but the Fagthony Fagtano influence ruined it and now it's just a place for people to unironically like rap music
Worse than worst: /lit/ - just a big high school reading list circlejerk full of people who don't actually read books.
/a/ is my home board. I used to post on /mu/ a lot in the late 00s when it was focused on indie music, and recently lost interest. I go on /co/ and /tv/ when there's something relevant that I want to discuss but I don't browse them a whole lot. As for /lit/, I was excited when the board was invented but quickly disillusioned by the fact that /lit/ posters don't really read books and most of them are just first-year university students who want to discuss what they learned in Philosophy 101.
>>436661 >what exactly makes /lit/ the worst board? I can't think of anything too reprehensible about it that doesn't apply to other boards as well
There's a very narrowly accepted definition of "literature" which means that they only talk about a handful of things they all have in common. They don't actually read, let alone read or discuss living authors. Which betrays the fact that the people having the conversations on /lit/ are predominantly university students in their very early twenties at the oldest who want to pat each other on the back about knowing who Thomas Pynchon is.
>>438730 It's actually very broad-- it definitely includes most everything before 1950. After... well, do you read genre fiction? There's no art to that, y'know. And hell, people are starting to meme against Pynchon now. They do actually read, y'know-- that they don't and just spend all day shitposting there is just a meme.
/lit/ /a/ /mu/ -POWERGAP- /co/ /v/ /tv/ /lit/ beats /a/ because /a/ becomes a hipster breeding ground when something gets popular. Both /v/ and /tv/ are horrible but /v/ is better because it doesn't get flooded by Star Wars and memes.
>>436796 >/a/ is the place to go for current anime discussion on the internet, they have a solid foundation on the underground industry here, with the big names all posting on /a/, they basically shape the anime underground industry
Hahaha waht the fuck /a/ is just a hugbox for waifufags
I don't mean genre fiction. Could you name any non-American living authors that /lit/ actually discusses? All I see are the odd attempt for one anon to start a thread about Salman Rushdie or Yann Martel or Orhan Pamuk and they end up going nowhere because, again, anons don't read anything outside of their school curriculum.
>>439369 But it's true, they know a lot about anime and all the big names post there, every sub group leader is a tripfaggot there, the creator of fakku is a tripfaggot, and exhentai too, they even get a Q&A basically every month with some anime directors and manga artists.
