Anyone who thinks Reddit hasn't tainted this place is a moron.
I've been here since about 2011 or so, /vp/'s always had underage, but it never got to the point where it was intolerable until around the X/Y leaks. Wottergate was fun, but it's been a general downward slope after that.

With the increase in moderation and all the people who made fun OC leaving, /vp/'s in a rut of constant genwars. Not to mention anything that happens or gets made here will be reposted on Tumblr and Reddit within the hour.

You're right, but for the wrong reasons. You have giveaway threads and friend safari threads to blame for that.

>>25079629
Really? I've never hung out at those threads, but I remember some nice people doing giveaways, I never knew they got that much attention.

The point I was trying to make is that /vp/'s almost entirely lost it's 'board culture' save for a few wayward /tr/ainers who make and post in threads like these.
If someone started up the Magnemite trading shenanigans, I'd join in.

Not a red board despite being made for the series with the single most amount of porn out of any other franchise that has ever existed.
It's a pink elephant in the room we are all supposed to pretend isn't there but we know and all the pokegirl/pokeboy/waifumon threads is a reflection of this.

All that's left is sexual frustration and trying to walk the line between SFW and NSFW.

Realistically speaking, if /vp/ were a red board the mods would make sure that it's more like the /pol/ kind of red board and less like the /h/ kind of red board.

Not a fucking Cryogonal's chance in hell that they were from 4chan. You're right, the leaks probably brought in a fair amount of Redditors and whatnot. But undesirables can never keep their fucking mouths shut, so when they yap about getting free shit, they bring heaps of even more kids. The cycle repeats with each wave reaching to more surface dwellers, each more cancerous than the last.
>>
>>25079920
Except when it comes to Pokemon, the line between SFW and NSFW isn't a thin one. It's a mile wide, with furries, barafags, and waifu warriors on one side and people who actually play the games on the other.

If it became a NSFW board it would be 80% furry porn and limits the amount of actual discussions.
>>25079542
It's an important part of Pokemon, unfortunately it's a hug box where only certain things are tolerated to be talked about.
>>25079502
This, also don't forget forums like Serebii. Those places bring the the lowest underaged people here that bring the place down.

There's a lot of things that led to /vp/ becoming toxic. When one cause is pointed out, everyone bristles and says "no, it wasn't THAT, it was THIS" and it never goes anywhere. We're never going to find the one magic root of everything.

The reason it's STAYING shit is more important. It's salted ground. No one wants to make new oc because it'll either be denounced as autism, or stolen and plastered on Reddit. And maybe even more importantly, who would even WANT to make something good for a shithole like this? The old sense of community is dead. We're no longer a bunch of nerdy faggots who banded together in this niche to enjoy a mutual hobby. Now it's every shitposter for himself.

But it seems to be getting noticeably better lately and I'm excited. I might even start making oc again.
>>
>>25080252
your oc is shit please refrain from posting

>No one wants to make new oc because it'll either be denounced as autism, or stolen and plastered on Reddit.
Or you will be attacked for it because it's not good enough or doesn't relate to memes. It's better to make nothing at all, the board should mainly be about official content anyway.

What your guys' problem? We had a thread a few days ago with a dude messing around with Pokemon figures and it was great fun. More power to you, >>25080252, I'm sure people will enjoy whatever you make.
>>
I always see "make /vp/ a red board, gib porn" as a solution but let me tell you what's what. Having porn on the board was a good surface dweller deterrent, yes. But not all /vp/ natives want to see porn all the time. It worked best when there was one dedicated porn thread, kept spoilered. That doesn't really keep keep the normies away, but it does prevent porn raids. Still, it's against the rules. It worked while there was no moderation, but there's no place for a sanctioned porn general now.
>>
>>25079492
Changing from /tr/ to /vp/

That's when we started dying
>>
>>25080057
Nope
>>
>>25080376
>there's no such thing as a filter

Porn keeps the normies away and /vp/ has gotten so organized lately that porn threads with all be /labeled/ so you can filter them away

Newfags won't know about the filter so they'll say "icky" and leave.

Problem solved
>>
The only way to save /vp/ is to become /mon/. We'll have more content to talk from other monster catching games
>>
>>25080465
FUCK YOU YOU'RE LITERALLY CANCER STOP IT
>>
>>25080503
It's pretty much our only solution if this board ends up with a lot more people like >>25080328
>>
>>25080826
The other solution is to dissolve the board and let game stuff go to /vg/ and /vr/, anime to /a/, the card game to /tg/, and the lewd to lewd boards.
>>
>>25080841
fucking pinko

>>25079492
/vp/ has a general lack of attention and direction. i think we can agree that there's some things that we do that are not okay and can be curtailed with effort from the users and staff
>>
>>25079492
The same thing that went wrong with /mu/, /tv/, /sci/, whatever the fuck. Boards are not meant to get better, they're set up to be worse.

If you guys honestly think we're a bad board and should be dissolved or the mods should have a field day here, you're a newfag.
>>
>>25080182
You caught me
>>
>>25080465
The problem isn't lack of content. It's lack of community. Adding a bunch of new people who don't agree on anything would be an unmitigated disaster.

The board needs unity.
>>
Every board grows to end up hating it's source for discussion, it's unavoidable

Sage getting public attention.

It's what caused normies and reddit to come to /vp/ so that they could spam Sage with their garbage ideas. Sage couldn't handle it, so they left the board for the most part, leaving the people who stayed behind to run rampant through the board and endlessly shitpost.
>>
>This thread again

Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
>>
>>25079920
This fampai

If i had to chose between 80% shitposting and 80% porn, I'd just go with the latter.
