>>
>>118447703
Well, the whole idea of verboten question-threads is that it takes a really long time to figure out a way to phrase the question in a way that regular anons won't realize. People are quick to recognize rec threads. Getting such a request through without people noticing that you're asking for requests is a multi-step process. You just named four variants of "is this show worth watching?" right there. It's too easy to find alternate phrasing.

Yes you are the only person in the entire world who has that opinion.
>>
>>118447800
The problem is not those threads (which thankfully get ignored/deleted sometimes), it's how people usually pop up in threads about any show and start asking shit like that.
There are at least three cases of this on the catalog at the moment. There's always at least one case of this happening every day on weekly threads for airing shows as well.

It feels the same after episode 7 and loses steam.

C'mon m8 it obviously means

"Am I the only one on /a/, here right now, who has also seen this particular part, having this opinion, and if I am not, which is likely the case, could I have someone else support my opinion?"

A single thread for a show does not equate a general. A general is a thread that is kept alive for no reason when all sensible conversation has died and all that's left is circlejerking and rehashing old memes.

Having one thread for a show with medium progress speed is better than having 3 dead threads that go nowhere at all.
That is roughly what you get when you have a moderately successful manga like Berserk.
When it's the hyped show of the season, it's more like 20-30, which is plain shitposting.

Real anon post on 3 threads, at the same time.
Only weak faggots need to focus on 1 thread only.
/a/ used to be crazy that way. After an episode is released, you see 5 fucking threads about it on front page and everyone post in them. Then the interesting threads live and the less interesting ones gradually die out.
Not anymore.

>>
>>118448544
This season wasnt that good. Not much hype.
>>
>>118448345
Why do you think every thread has the exact same discussion? Topics would be cluttered to fuck if there could only be one thread, especially for the really popular shit.
>>
>>118448544
>Real anon post on 3 threads, at the same time.
I post in 20. But I don't need 3 different threads per manga. /a/ only has ~150 threads, so dedicating 3 to a single title is limiting space for others.

>Not anymore.
Right. Because we have the catalog. We can more easily find the threads we want now. This is an advantage. It's progress.

>>118448620
>Why do you think every thread has the exact same discussion?
I don't. But discussions can go parallel in one thread.

>>118448620
>Topics would be cluttered to fuck if there could only be one thread,
Just like this one, and yet it's not difficult to keep up if you pay attention.
>>
>>118448620
>especially for the really popular shit.
Exactly. Really popular threads will have the same things asked and answered over and over again. If the idea is to have better discussion, confining it to one thread is the wrong way to go about it.
>>
>>118448704
>so dedicating 3 to a single title is limiting space for others
Fuck others. It's their fucking fault for not being as good and popular as a show that get 5 threads at the same time.
Solution? Just get good.
>>
>>118448620
I will concede that really popular threads need more than one thread because when activity goes beyond a certain point, the thread cannot be actively participated in anymore while reading every post and thinking before posting - making every single post a shitpost.

However for slower stuff that's simply not the case. You just get 3 semi-dead threads where one thread could have actual life.
>>
>>118448704
>But discussions can go parallel in one thread.
That's what make /a/ a fucking mess. You can't monitor discussion easily, and often times you have to drag all the discussions out to 2, or even 3 threads.
>>
I hate /a/ so much sometimes. I wish it could take care of itself on its own.

>often times you have to drag all the discussions out to 2, or even 3 threads.
Except that these different topics are only different for some 20 posts if that before somebody starts up the old classics of "which one is your favorite girl" or similar and at that point all the threads will be the same again.

You should be able to endure some 20 posts, right?

>>118448379
Making a list of anime you liked in 2014 is not a recommendation thread, it is a legit thread considering the year is about to end. You have to draw the line somewhere that people can still enjoy the threads they want to even if newfags can get some anime recs out of it.

The above thread is obviously cancer and should be reported.

>>118449881
If the guy who made the third thread wants recs, he deserves them since he's obviously figured out that you can't ask directly.
>>
>>118450083
Well, the guy does indeed seem to only care about recs, but I dont feel like aoty threads should be seen in the same eyes as normal rec threads. Discussion what your favorite show of the year was is a legit thread, even if it means that newfags get some ideas out of it.

Request threads should only be punished so much that it doesn't hurt the enjoyment of those who are not here for rec threads.

I think some anons still don't quite get that anyone who is mentally competent can pick up a new series from absolutely any thread, but that doesn't necessarily make the thread a rec thread.

But no matter what, we really need to get back to the habit of telling people to shut up and lurk more.

The bad thing is that threads that OP quoted are becoming a norm. You can't discuss anything with an OP like that, you're just asking about opinions. I also don't know your taste, so asking if a show is worth it is just plain retarded.
