/o/ needs new janitors. preferably people who have automotive knowledge. the shitposting is getting out of hand and turns away actual automotive enthusiasts from participating.
I hope you and I can both be janitors at least. I'm at community college so homework is almost nonexistent, if I'm not working on the weekends or in class or at /tg/ club I'd love to be able to stop the shitposting as well. What little moderation we have doesn't seem to know jack shit about cars.
When you post the On Sunday... pasta, a screamer should pop up blowing out your speakers and you should be permabanned in the process.
They're probably monitoring this thread right now, laughing at how long it took most of us to realize that they're mods.
And the worst part is that we can't do shit about it, you'll most likely get banned if you call them out.
Alphonse and Corey are mods, it all makes sense if you think about it:
>never get banned
>spend large amount of time on 4chan moderating/shitposting
>can post multiple threads quickly
>conviently all alphonse/corey threads get deleted when they they've finished shitposting
They do it for fun because what else would the fuck you do if your entire life revolves moderating a chinese imageposting site. But /o/ needs new mods anyway
How would you fix /o/, anons?
>Forced names and trips
I know it's a step away from being completely anonymous, but it would make for easy filtering of shitposters.
>Forced ID like /soc/ or whatever
Prevents people blatantly samefagging with multiple trips
>throw the old mods out
needless to say why
>new mods that actually care about the board
They would need to be available for large chunks of the day, of course.
People who can't be on as often, but would still like to help contain shitposting.

"lel americans" in general, anything related to golden meme face spam

>FORD SHILLS GUYS ITS ALL FORD SHILLS NOBODY COULD POSSIBLY ACTUALLY LIKE FORD SHIT
>lel fr kiddies ur all boyracerz
I only go to /o/ for the funposting. It hasn't been car related for years
Oh and of course manual vs automatic. I'm sure I've missed plenty too.
Also this is an example of a fastestlaps image. Any post unironically containing something like this is a shitpost.
The shitposters use it to shitpost, that's the thing. If a thread looks like it came from /v/ but has cars in it, it's a shitpost thread, often full of golden meme faces, anime faces, and liberal use of the word "cuck". Besides, racing is 80% driver, not that the vast majority of /o/ races any way, and certainly not with new cars in factory spec.
I also enjoy Frosty. His shitposting style is so rigid that I've recognized him on other boards when he was anon
Nah m8 they post images like that to bait people into arguing with each other and to shit threads up with. They usually post it with something like:
>FR simply cant compete KEK!
Its pretty amazing how low hanging the bait is and people fall for it every single time and respond
Multi-board posting isn't that uncommon.
Strange enough /v/ has the highest amount of board loyal users who never step foot outside of it compared to other boards.
Low traffic board users are more likely to move around because of the slower post rate.
But yes, it is very likely that people from /v/ brought gold face to /o/ because console war shitposting is applicable to any highly competitive brandname saturated market.
Cars are pretty much interchangable with consoles. You invest into them, and brand names are fixated upon.
Honestly there isn't a ton of brand name shitpost wars. Chevy vs Ford is mostly a facebook thing done by brotruck faggots.
Golden meme faces are usually associated with underageb& australian knob jockies going on about american drivers or american import laws.
except most people on /o/ aren't that psychologically wedded to a car which is why it's annoying.
I couldn't give a shit about the GTR or the Z06 so it's even more annoying that threads or now the entire board get derailed shitposting over something that doesn't even matter to me.
I'm annoyed that any discussion gets killed and it's all shitposting and meems
>the shitposting has gotten so bad it's leaked onto another board where anons were asking for help with the initial shitposting
It's like pottery
You could also call the uni and tell them that soem shitheads are abusing the net to post ona child porn sharing website called 4chan.
If you are lucky they get completely blocked by their uni.
>How do you think they're able to post so many threads so fast?
Resetting your router or even easier just using your handy proxy called phone.
Seriously why would you still allow mobile IPs on anything but /b/ still.
>Strange enough /v/ has the highest amount of board loyal users who never step foot outside of it compared to other boards.
Because people are not joking when they say /v/ is the new /b/. People have that as their first and only board for years which explains why all the kids want to dicuss every fucking topic except videogames with their /v/ros.
I see goldenface on way too many unrelated boards, it needs a ban before it gets pepe status or even goes into mainstream once again.
Seems like we will have this shit every day now.
No mods on /o/.
Yep, makes sense, especially since reporting does literally nothing.
Might get interesting if /b/ found out that /o/ pretty much has no functioning moderation.
Just noticed it to. Well, this tells everything.
What a shame.
Not saying everything was perfectly fine under Moot but this shit would have been sorted out in a OK way under him to be honest.
Just leave. There are enough places on the internet to mindlessly discuss cars that there's no need to cling to somewhere that can't deal with two cretins posting from a uni room (if that is, indeed, the source of the issue). We should expect better moderation than this, and if this site can't provide it we should just go somewhere that can.
>b-but muh board specific culture
Are Twingo generals, speculating about Frosty and occasionally remembering one or two amusing threads in this place's history really that important to you?
>b-but then Corey and Alphonse win
Win what? A slightly less populous board to spam? Why do you care? And why are we even the ones "fighting" them? I come here to talk about cars, not to police board content.
The people responsible for the site should anticipate this stuff and have systems in place to deal with it. IT is their fault for not providing them, so it would be wise to go somewhere that does. This is not a difficult conclusion to draw.
Hmmm how would I go about confirming it? I was also thinking like any angle as long as you have an /hg/ stamp. And each slot on the new collage could be 2"x2" or something. I'll do it after we reach v100 lol.
>/hg/ stamp, bread/crackers on hood, or rice sack by car
>must post model and year with entry to avoid misplaced Hondas
>bottom bordered with dead Hondas from 1.0 collage
If there are no more new entries for the current collage I'll start the new one. And I would like to call dibs for new thread op so the op image is the final version of the 1.0 /hg/ collage. Then the next thread will have the new collage as OP or be in the thread.
And "what is engine braking" too. Third thread I've seen on that in the last few days, all of them phrased about the same.
Also "I have an 06 Accord and I want to change springs", there's 4 of those threads up right now.
>decide to check /qa/ because I haven't in a while
>see this thread
>go back to /o/
notto disu shitto agen
Well, at least the Del Sol topic had some good posts, he kinda fucked that one up, there's nothing wrong with the Civic Chassis, or arguable with the style of the Del Sol. Really the downsides are: FF (If this trigger's you), 2 seater (If you like space) and it destroying the legacy the CRX had attempted to create.
Also I don't trust you moose. I've been on /o/ for years and you seemed to just appear the last few days during the drama... False flag Alfie? You also seem to do the most complaining about it, the rest of the oldfags on /o/ just ignore it and either stay away for a day or stick to innocuous threads that newfags tend to avoid.
What do you drive?
It could also just be some newfag buying a car and getting hype for it. Tons of people do it, just look at the influx of Prelude posts because it was sleeper meme status and people started getting interested.
I've been anon for like a year and a half. Was briefly another trip when I was completely autistic about stance. The only reason I had the del sol one up is because it's definitely Corey. He's posted that exact image with "i love you cahsssis" or whatever clusterfuck of mispelling several times before.
Hmm, must stick to the Ford/Foxbody/truck threads, never seen either car.
I'm willing to concede that it's him, but it also faired pretty good as a topic.
I do remember the cahssssis posts and wondered wtf was going on.
Proceeding to dump examples of painfully obvious cancer that even the most oblivious mod should be able to figure out.
Get your shit together, phone.
>go to /o/
>click on a thread
>people are discussing RWD vs. FWD
>they are actually using nice arguments instead of calling eachother poor plebs and using memes
>they actually know what they are talking about
>it was /ovg/
>it was /ovg/
lol nice, guess I'll have to check it out more often.
I think the reason that it's like that is because you have real results based on lap times. It's bench racing in a sense but what is said can be tested easily and almost instantly because you don't have to physically go out to a racetrack.
Not just that, but they are really committed to improve themselves as sim racers and - as the outsider I am - they are very technical and serious about their hobby.
The rest of the board, in the other hand, made me go to reddit to talk about cars.
I never use /o/ at all, but this Alphonse guy is literally a nutcase. He tries to act all snarky and smart with his posts, but in reality the guy literally has no life at all. Its pathetic for him just to spam /o/ every single day, and sadly no matter how many times you ban him, he'll just reset his router and do it all over again.
Either you need to ban the name Alphonse from /o/, or word filter Alphonse to cuck.
I won't, you niggers keep making spam of FWD vs. RWD like it even mattered.
I'm kind of flattered by how you say like "hurr durr I'm superior because I discuss automotive stuff on 4jams" as if /o/ was decent at automotive matters.
>muh sekrit klub with mah hondaz
The spam thing is his butt-buddy corey, who also shitposts. At least jt was at dirst, I bet they're both in on it now. It's not an every single day thing, but he's usually on in chunks, so for a week or two /o/ will be unuseable.
