A majority of the board is a student circle jerk talking about how cool they are for being students, but they hate students who are in different majors, so we need ten threads or so at all times for students of different majors so they can jerk each other off about how great their major is and how everyone else sucks.
The next largest group would be stupid questions, which can be kind of fun some times, but most of the time there's one or two posts then the thread sits until it's deleted.
Then we have math threads. I don't participate in the math threads, but they seem like they know what they are doing.
Three popsci hate threads also need to be active at all times because hating on popsci is popular.
The two smallest groups would be shit posts and intelligent discussion. Although it's easy to mistake stupid questions for shit posts, I feel like actual shit post OPs don't happen very often. Shit posts in threads are common.
I feel like the student circle jerk could really be toned down. We couldn't have just a students general because they would all be complaining about how some major is better than the other one and starting their own threads continuing to mess up the board, but I think it might be nice if we had like a /msg/ med student general, and a /msg/ math student general, or something along those lines with catchier kids names that they like so we don't have three threads about med students on the board at once.
Stupid questions I really think there's nothing we can do about. New people come here and want to ask things. I think they are fine.
Math people I like. I feel like they are a positive contribution to the board.
I also feel like there's nothing we can do about the popsci hate threads. The people in them are so retarded they wouldn't look for a popsci hate general and would start their own popsci hate thread with the general active. Ignoring seems to be the only option.
Sparking more intelligent discussion seems like it's hard, but it's something we could all strive for. I don't really mean boring blatantly try-hard OPs, just try to do a little better posting sometimes.
you dumb chimp, if /sci/ was mostly students a few years ago and now it's still mostly students then the logical conclusion is that the students who graduated have grown up and moved and new ones have replaced them.
I notice however that you're still here and haven't grown up. I also notice that you don't seem to have a problem with the stupid popsci threads made by retards like yourself and that you also seem to lack knowledge of the basics of mathematics required for proper scientific inquiry and hence that you don't belong here.
Thats nice, but I think what the board really needs is to check my dubs
