Seriously just do it already. /qa/ is turning into the anti /a/ board lately, and its getting insane having to see 10 different threads about this subject. Anyone who talks shit about /a/ or anime in general should be banned, just like those who spam go back to that place that starts with R and ends with T.
Then its literally the same group of people every single day. They're probably all either shitty trolls, which I really think they are, or they are some newfags who hate anime so badly they just want it gone from here
>requesting anime on /a/ gets you globally banned for breaking requestds outside of /r/ rule
>requesting milfs, lolis etc is fine
yeah /a/ is dogshit lad, the 20 eternal generals every season don't help
>ban something from /qa/
That would imply this board has rules much less relevance in the first place. The fact that it isn't just locked when Hiro isn't using it kind of boggles my mind; it was made literally made only for moot to talk to us on and hiro used it to intro himself on. That's it. Hiro himself said right off the bat he isn't deleting anything. Keep dreaming.
But yes these "hurr I hate /a/ so much" posters just going nonstop are annoying as fuck. Their being so fucking whiny and pussy-whipped offended by it is the exact same shit as people here being mad at /pol/ existing, which is the other side of the coin of numerous utterly pointless, unproductive threads here. It's very fucking un-4chan-like behavior to be so very thin-skinned. You think mods listen to you crybabies worth a fuck? They don't. They at most cite you as reasons to keep on doing what they're doing.
You think traffic dictates what the soul of 4chan is? If that was the case then all of 4chan should be unquestionably accommodating of roll threads, "rate me" threads and porn threads because that's basically all /b/ is, and they are far and away the dominant board on the site in traffic and has remained this way almost all these 13 years. Yet almost no one on /qa/ talks about /b/ or thinks they should have some kind of power by authority of traffic. So all these people this entire time operate on traffic =/= relevancy applied to /b/, yet use this exact concept to attack /a/. Pure hypocrisy. True, /a/ does not by itself dictate what 4chan is or should be.. and neither does /b/ nor /v/ nor /vg/ nor /pol/ nor /int/. That's just not how it works.
If you want to do something on /qa/, try to make productive discussion on how to improve boards, not just think "oh boy I can influence the whole site here because surely hiro and mods are reading and noting my every word, even though I myself have no more importance or authority than the 20 million other people".
>Then its literally the same group of people every single day. They're [...] shitty trolls
Gee, you don't say. It's fucking 4chan, of course that's the case. People make it their life's goal to sit on the site shitposting.
Majority of /a/ doesn't even acknowledge this boards existence, what's really happening is a few crossboard posters are going on /a/ and saving images then posting them on other boards, other people save them too and spread it across the whole site. A few whiny normal people who shouldn't be here in the first place see them and can't accept a few pictures probably because they come here in public and/or on their phone and get insecure that people might see them and think they're into anime.
Any time somebody says ban anime, say ban phone posters.
Use this one if you feel the need to shitpost.
>DON'T BE MEAN ABOUT MY CHINESE CARTOONS I'M TELLING THE MODERATORS ON YOU
you're no better than the lardasses on tumblr that cry about being triggered. Both of you are just whining about people disagreeing with you and attempting to get these people shut down for holding a different opinion. Surprise surprise, it makes you both look like faggots.
Anime is based and wonderful, but /a/ is Literally Plebbit: The Board. I can understand why you might ban people for shitposting, but there are plenty of other online communities which ban anyone for digressing even slightly from the circle-jerk, and many of them are nowhere near as sneering, elitist and unhelpful as /a/. It's possible to change the tone of a board (look what's happened to /r9k/ and, to a lesser extent, /pol/) so it should surely be possible to just stop /a/ from being condescending assholes through a planned, calculated injection of classic 4chan cancer bants.
If there was some way to relax the moderation and remove Umaru spam at the same time, that would be perfect.
Mods love /a/ too much, and /a/ at least stands up for itself when shit goes down. They don't like anime requests because they expect you to lurk the board and make your own decisions. If we allowed requests on /a/, the whole board would be flooded by request threads
Other boards have tried to stand up for themselves though. The mods responded the same way as always- they shut down and stopped talking to anyone, and kept doing exactly what they were doing.
/a/ is the only board the mods will actually listen to, because moot refused to hire any mods that weren't from /a/.
>But yes these "hurr I hate /a/ so much" posters just going nonstop are annoying as fuck. Their being so fucking whiny and pussy-whipped offended
So your justification for not fixing the cancerous selective rule enforcement and 1million generals is because it's annoying.
The rest of your post is drivel. 4chan staff are so embarrassing.
/a/ culture is so fucking weird. They just randomly make up boogiemen and attach them to whatever they don't like.
There's no correlation between not liking /a/ and posting from a phone, yet they desperately try to force one and spam it in every thread possible. I've seen them try the same thing with "bronies" too.
I'm convinced that the average /a/ poster doesn't actually grasp how 4chan works.
Actually it's the idiots complaining about /a/ who don't know how this site works. Most of them don't know what they're talking about and they get so offended and triggered easily over shit like this
Because the people complaining are either a group of shitposters who are coordinating spamming anti-/a/ threads, or they are mobile posters who are scared people will find out they browse an anime imageboard
It's ironic you say things like "triggered easily" considering the fact you are flipping the fuck out just because there are people in the world who do not enjoy the same subsection of an image board you do.
This is what's wrong with /a/, they all flip their shit and nobody wants to discuss anything.
Here's a list of boogymen used by /a/:
There are more, but these are they ones I remember having seen here on /qa/.
>people do not enjoy the same subsection of an imageboard
You act as if the anti-/a/ shitposters are being respectable or rational people. That's a bit different from numerous threads literally going "wahh I don't like /a/ ban/delete them now". Being indifferent =/= belligerent; these anti /a/ people are clearly not just indifferent but rather talking shit nonstop trying so hard to strip /a/ of all logical validity it actually has, and going through more and more complicated mental gymnastics to try to justify their behavior making up some delusion that /a/ is shitposting all over the site when it's clear /a/ actually makes efforts to in fact not interact with other boards.
If they don't focus on trying to perpetuate their obvious bullshit story to continue their charade, instead then they instead attack /a/ for the opposite, for being too hostile and withdrawn to other boards. Which is just plain bitching about the board being itself even if it literally doesn't affect you at fucking all. That utterly, simply is shitposting, baseless hate with no real goal or aim other than to express displeasure at /a/'s very fucking existence. Protip, it will never go away. If you can't stand that down to your bones then seriously leave the site before you have a heart attack from the stress of being triggered by /a/'s existence.
Why are they shitposters just because they disagree with you? What is your problem? I see no problem with them complaining.
You keep using these words like attack, hostile, and swearing up a storm.
Calm the persecution complex.
There are barely any pro-/a/ threads being made, just pro-/a/ posts being made. People do the exact same shit with /pol/.
Regardless many people have explained the situation with /a/, but you guys insist on making anti-/a/ threads day in and day out because you get upset over a few reaction images. The only people who would get upset over seeing those images are people who post in public ie dumb phone posters.
They're shitposters because they don't actually listen to any evidence when engaged or try to override it with the gamut of fallacies there are out there. Their opinions override facts. Their personal whim for what 4chan should be overrides everyone else's even if it's mods/hiro. When they try to actually do more than go "hurr I hate weebs so much" they go through the cycle outlined in that post quoted.
They are not here looking to constructively argue rather than just continually shit on/patronize anyone who disagrees and tries to reason with them, and then start fresh threads repeating the same things when the old ones die, having clearly gotten nothing out of the conversation and only wanting to repeat it at its worst. That is shitposting.
For that matter this rationale applies not just to /a/ but to every board in 4chan. Even if it's /pol/ or /mlp/, anyone on /qa/ suggesting any board or user population be deleted/banned should be just completely ignored because those people are just looking to shitpost whoever they are addressing rather than discuss things like adults.
people have pointed out multiple problems with /a/ that make it shit
face it kiddo it is not 2006 anymore, /a/ has so much crossover with /v/ that even the same tripfags post in the same 100 generals on both boards
you are embarrassing
/a/ has like 5 actually persistent generals, maybe not even that. Basically no one besides their users likes them. Note no one on here defends generals on /a/ including actual /a/ users. Threads for seasonal shows are no more generals than threads about new/recent games on /v/.
The straw man here is your entirely changing that post's subject from "ban/delete /a/" threads, which was clearly the topic of that post, to instead answering as if this was regarding "informed discussion on /a/'s problems" which basically does not exist in /qa/, and if it does is in the form of hyperbole to puff up the criticism like you just did. Your typing in lower caps while trying to play cool and condescending was also just pointed out in what you just quoted. Which shows you clearly did not read or listen to that post.. Also called out ahead of time in the post describing the problem with these anti-/a/ people.
You willingly played yourself like a fiddle, like Rubio/Christie at the debate the other day. You know, speaking of "embarrassing".
I swear it's one little group of 2 or 3 autists that just pick a random board and spend weeks trying to get it deleted. If you retards can learn to ignore obvious trolling then you would probably learn to live a more peaceful and satisfying life.
I'm not making it up, I have seen them being used as boogeymen by /a/-posters.
I even forgot a few:
>gaiafags (used in the past)
So you see, /a/ sees boogeymen everywhere. However, I've never seen them use /s4s/ as a boogyman. Strange.
>instead then they instead attack /a/ for the opposite, for being too hostile and withdrawn to other boards. Which is just plain bitching about the board being itself even if it literally doesn't affect you at fucking all.
Those critical voices obviously comes from actual /a/-posters. Let's face it, lots of people on /a/ are not happy about the board and it's poor quality.
/a/utists are absolutely terrible at arguing, they might actually be the worst board Ive ever seen, they literally just throw buyywords and insluts at you and when you call them out they call you mad
>The only people who would get upset over seeing those images are people who post in public ie dumb phone posters.
Dumbest thing I've read in a while. It's very possible to get annoyed even if you're a shut-in.
After all, /a/ gets upset about everything, frogposters etc, and it's not like /a/ goes outside.
These boogymen are used by all boards. Just saying.
To all tr/a/nny f/a/ggots: fuck off, your board is not worth protecting and you're retarded.

And I know you love to call the people you disagree with you outsiders, but the problem with /a/ is you. Every posting style that /a/ has developed memetically is unfunny and obnoxious. You can find better discussion in youtube comments, and most of /a/ is best girl flame wars and fawning over softcore porn. You assume your board is a paradise and redirect anybody who doesn't fit in to /v/. You belong to both the dumbest and most pretentious board on this site. You are misguided. You think you are protecting something valuable when you are only fitting in to delusional groupthink. The project of your life is a vapid wasteland, a glitzy casino made of recycled water bottles, a treasured nothing. You will believe you've won an argument when I stop responding. You are an idiot and belong in the prison you built out of strangers.
>inb4 straw grasping retards tell me spoilertext doesn't work here
I know, shitheads, I'm just imitating your brand of garbage.
/a/ is shit. You act like 4chan is remotely obscure when /a/ is one of the largest anime communities out there. You pretend you're better than /v/ when really you're equally stupid and embarrassingly pretentious. If you have browsed /a/ for more than six months without getting sick of it you're either brain damaged or underaged.
And yet you still take the time to complain about /a/ when you never even use it to begin with. Face it, you're just a normie who probably came here a year or two ago and now you think you can change this site to suit your tastes
Because it is. Its the only board that has a sense of community. The only reason you don't like it is because you expcet everyone to be nice and tolerant toward everyone. Guess what? The world doesn't work like that. And now I know you're from /v/ and /int/ because only shitposters think those boards are great.
Also because in order to genuinely participate in discussion you have to have read/watched the material. Most shows are at least 13 episodes which is a solid 4-5 hours you must dedicate at minimum in order to talk about a show. Most shitters just do not have it in them to dedicate that time just so they can join in on threads. On top of that you're expected to have years of experience under your belt, and since most anime fans got into it late they have way less time to pull this off so it's a lot more work.
Compare this to /tv/. American tv and films are watched from birth so the average user has 20+ years of content they've seen to shitpost about. When they come across something new all they have to do is sit down for an hour or so and they're ready to shit up the thread. There are way less barriers to entry.
/v/ is a bunch of fifteen year olds trying to make each other mad. It never pretends to be anything more than that. That puts it a couple of notches above /a/. /int/ is similar but slightly older and less chaotic.
>Its the only board that has a sense of community
This is bullshit but also /a/'s community is garbage. /a/ is filled with people who read filenames to see if I can tell people to fuck off for being from other websites, who turn every off topic thread into a meta thread about how /a/ was so much better in 2006 and how this never would have happened then, who shitpost in Naruto threads because of six year old pasta vilifying twelve year olds who have since grown up, and who get personally invested in the quality of a board on 4chan that is almost certainly a waste of their time.
>Its the only board that has a sense of community.
>/v/ is a bunch of fifteen year olds trying to make each other mad. It never pretends to be anything more than that.
That is one of the many reasons why /v/ is in such disarray and why it needs to be fixed big time. You're reasoning for this are beyond fucking stupid.
You really have to appreciate how /a/'s response to new fags and shitposters was to become even more intolerable and autistic and pretend they're on some moral high ground in every argument
>i have never browsed /a/ the post and formed my opinion of it by offhand comments by shitposters
>/v/ is a bunch of fifteen year olds trying to make each other mad. It never pretends to be anything more than that
Yea and that's why /v/ is so fucking shit. Because no one gives a fuck.
>who get personally invested in the quality of a board on 4chan that is almost certainly a waste of their time.
It's a community you fucking moron. Of course people are going to get invested in something they enjoy and love.
>i have never browsed /a/ the post and formed my opinion of it by offhand comments by shitposters
Wrong as hell. Haven't been to /a/ in several years but I doubt it's changed, the culture couldn't be more stagnant.
Because maybe if newfags didn't act like total retards and just shitpost constantly, maybe /a/ wouldn't be so hostile hm?
But what does he know about community? Oh wait he's a normie, he doesn't care because he "has a life". That's the fucking problem. These fucking normies that come here from Facebook and talk shit about communities because they feel it breeds autism and they just want 4chan to be a chatroom for other normies.
lol I'm not /r9k/, I'm just pointing out that since you're a normie, you seem to think you can change 4chan to be the way you want it to be, hence why you guys hate anime so fucking much and despise the idea of a community on here
>I'm just pointing out that since you're a normie
I'm sorry normalfag retard, but I'm one of the people against the anti-/a/ shitposters. But you are on the same tier as them, normalfag reject.
This image should of gotten posted and this thread should of ended right then and there. If you don't like /a/, fuck off.
>maybe if newfags didn't act like total retards
Almost everyone on /a/ acts like a total retard. The board is full of newfags trying very hard to look like oldfags, which results in all sorts of embarrassing posturing.
So you're saying you don't know the first thing about the mods here?
A lot of the most influential mods aren't interested in anime and the /a/-centric mods also use other boards. This has been proven and you're just going on speculation because things aren't going your way. Wouldn't be surprised if you were one of those idiots who ate up that 8gag conspiracy theory about moot.
