Do you think that the current /v/, /vg/ and /vp/ arrangement is fine, or would we need more subs? Would there be a place for something like vidya culture, so that all eceleb and twitter stuff could go there?
/vp/ is okay since it's a mass-media franchise (cards, anime, spinoffs, etc.) and has the traffic for it
Personally think /vg/ was a huge mistake
Shoulda been "video game lobbies" and for online multiplayer games only
All the rest are just mostly off-topic chatrooms
I know alot of anons disagree with me. fite me.
Moon moot is already making new boards frivolously. We don't need more.
/vg/ was necessary because everybody was fucking sick of the constant SC2/LoL threads up on the main page every day. Now I can check it out whenever there's a game I like to play that's out and get to see how people like it. Also home to shitloads of tripfags who all think they're important, so sometimes not great for discussion.
/vp/ has expanded and it needs its own board now, but there's absolutely no reason Moot shouldn't have just made them go to /vg/.
You forgot about /vr/, as did most other people, but I honestly think it's one of the best boards on the site. There isn't a single fucking shitposting thread there, and there probably hasn't been one on there for months. Honestly surprised how decent the community is on there. Probably because nobody notices it all that often (including me)
Onto /v/, the place that can't be saved. There is SO MUCH fucking shitposting here it's unbelievable. Honestly worse than /b/ when I check it for porn, because at least on /b/ it's ALLOWED there.
Every day there's:
>Some tranny shitposting
>Black guys fucking white girls
>Pictures/Webms of cringe shit
>Shitty feel guy/pepe frog posting where people are crying and shitting everywhere (seriously, what the fuck)
And the mods keep saying they're policing this place, but nine times out of ten these threads go straight to the post limit. /v/ is /b/ except worse, because people actually try and discuss shit and their threads about video games get pushed off the board for more threads about what Brianna Wu said on Twitter. It's a fucking nightmare to navigate it.
It's improving though; Hiro putting wordfilters on Black Twitter lingo increased post quality dramatically overnight.
/vm/ - video games meta (or something to that effect)
for console wars, filename threads, twitter bollocks threads and anything thats only "technically" on topic on /v/. Then /v/ can be used to discuss, you know, actual video games. After that maybe /vp/, /vr/ and /vg/ can be condensed into fewer boards, but I wouldn't know how to handle that.
Is hiro kill? he hasn't done anything in a while and he keeps ignoring existing problems.
>he keeps ignoring existing problems
Pray tell, what are these problems oh wise anon?
How many generals would be wiped out if that change for /vg/ was implemented? I can only think of the vsual novel ones.
Naw, more boards don't really work. It's really simple to be honest.
>shitposting, porn threads, autistic cringe, console wars, cringe shit all go to /trash/ or get deleted
>anime pedoshits fuck off back to /a/, shitposters return to /b/, generals to /vg/, /vp/ stays in /vp/, webms go to /wsg/, autists go to /r9k/.
More boards aren't necessary. What we need is less retards.
That reminds me, I intermittently check what number the Katawa Shoujo general is at to remind me of /vg/'s shittiness.
The rate appears to have slowed down in recent years.
The problem is newfags flood into /v/ without reading the rules or even knowing that /vg/, /vp/ and /vr/ exist. I think /vp/ was a mistake - it's too specific. Instead, maybe we should have: >/vps/ - Vidya PS/Sony
>/vxb/ - Vidya Xbox/Microsoft
>/vpc/ - Vidya PC
>/vnt/ - Vidya Nintendo
/vec/ - Vidya e-celebs/News, this is the containment board for all the "muh SJW" and e-celeb faggots
Then at least we can prune off the "lel ps has no games XDDDD" "eat shit nintoddlers XDD" ">mfw sonydrones defend this :DDD".
/v/ itself is then just for random video game discussion. Unfortunately because of all the newfags, there will always be off topic porn threads or whatever. All I can say to that is stricter policing, but the whole point of this being an anonymous imageboard is that some randomness is healthy and fun. If we make things too strict we end up like reddit and the place loses its charm. I dunno, just pissing into an ocean here, I guess the decisions are left to the admins anyway.
I don't think that would work. There are too many cross platform games to get rid of console warriors entirely. I do think a larger effort to remove or segregate shitposting could do good though. It wouldn't make the board dry or boring, it'd just remove the worst offenders that encourage newfags to do the same.
A permanent sticky wouldn't go amiss either, regardless of whether the board is actually split to just remind people what /v/ is for.
This, it's always the westcucks who praise shit games and ruin discussion.
