today I learned from first hand experience autosage is not a meme, but a real thing that exists
is it even worth asking the so-called "mods" to explain themselves?
What is there to explain? If a thread isn't up to scratch or maybe had a decent topic or discussion going but got out of control/heavily offtopic then it seems to be a good compromise to autosage it instead of outright deleting. Gives it time to wind down.
Describe your encounter with this nigh-mythical thing.
Because if you were the only person replying to your thread, that wasn't a conspiratorial action by some unseen enemy. It was your topic sucking.

It's amazing how many new and ignorant children think /qa/ is in need of their insights.
>he thought autosage was a myth
How fucking new are you? Don't tell me you actually believed the mods when they post anonymously trying to pretend it's not real?
Do you also think the Janitor logs were faked too?
Autosage basically translates to "I dont like your thread but it's not breaking any rules so I'll just hide it."
I've only ever seen it used on /v/, which is a fast enough board where it works.
it wasn't my topic for starters, it went as follows: a thread with 70 replies, well under bumplimit, just stopped bumping when new replies were made
you can see this at the bottom right: 12 / 0 / 11 / 1 first number is replies, last is page number, it updates intantly on page refresh or on a timer
