I don't think there is going to be a new admin, moot doesn't want all the responsibility to rest on one person so he'll just have mods manage it as a team.

To be honest, 4chan has already changed quite a lot, even during the 11 years when moot was admin.

Of course change is inevitable. I am all for change as long as they are tolerable.

A lot of people applauded 4chan because there are no accounts, and is considered more "free" than other online communities.

I will probably continue to browse 4chan as long as I live. Unless it becomes too stifling like Reddit or Facebook.

The whole anonymity is what I like most about this place, no bullshit about registering for shit just plane and simple posting, there's no namefagging like there is on places like Reddit and doesn't have the same retarded upvoting system and most importantly Moot does not sell our private information to companies to make himself or others richer. He and this place are truly a bastion of free speech which is slowly being robbed from the internet.

Congrats Moot, you had a great 11 years, I just hope the new admins don't fuck up and decide to make this place more corporate and capitalize on us.

Here's to you as it's been a great ride:

It very much is the problem. It may not be *your* problem, but it is a huge problem that is prevalent.

For instance, you called me a "fucking retard" just now. Since we are on an anonymized system, I can't do anything to you.

If we were on an identity-based system, that would be bad. If you pissed someone off real badly, he or she could make your life hell. With more information being able to be traced back to you, you are left more vulnerable.

I get your point. You want to remain anonymous so you can call me a "fucking retard" without any consequences. I actually want that, too. I am a proponent of free speech, and I believe that you should have the right to say anything you want without any hindrance to your well-being.

So yes, that IS the problem with usernames and registration, "you fucking retard."

>>120179136
Excuse me, but I was the one who wrote that post, and I know exactly what I meant.

The more convoluted registration becomes, the more weight your words have.

An anonymized system works best because I can say pretty much anything I want, with little to no consequences.

If I say something while using an account that has my personal information tied to it, I would be in for a world of hurt if I happen to offend someone.

You fucking dick.

>>120179379
What the fuck? You have to be misunderstanding something, because nobody in this thread disagrees with you. Your original post just made it sound like the problem with registration is "baww it takes too long" when the problem is that it restricts anonymity like you said.

So, no, a registration system would still be shit even if it was based on an "antiquated design", contrary to your dogshit opinion that registration "wouldn't be so bad" if it's simple as stated in >>120178257

>>120179502
>I said it would be a lesser evil to the alternative.

You did not.

Unbelievable how you'd be upset that people attack you for saying registration wouldn't be so bad. You're the one that made a shitty post that doesn't reflect what you were trying to say in the first place.

Goddamn you're an autist.
>>
>>120179774
I acknowledge that you found difficulty in understanding my post.

If push came to shove, and simple registration was enforced, I might *reluctantly* give into it. I still wouldn't like it, but it would be better than the modern bullshit you see on most sites these days.

I acknowledge that my point did not come across to you clearly. It's a good thing we're anonymous, because you seem steamed.

>>120180684
Didn't moot say he broke even with 4chan? Did 4chan start becoming profitable at some point?
>>
I hope so, but every time I've seen a site sold it went to shit. I think the new admin will be fine as long as moot owns the place, but the problem is what's next.

If moot's smart and cares about the community, he'd turn 4chan into a nonprofit and give users some say in selecting the mods. But I expect him to cash in, the new owners to ruin it, and the community to disperse, because that's how the internet works.
>>
>>120180806
If I offend someone on the internet and the most info they can dig up on me is my e-mail address, the worst thing that could happen is that I'll get gay porn in my junk mail folder.

If I offend someone while using an account with highly sensitive info attached to it, I am at their mercy. They could publish my name anywhere and tell the world that I am a bad man. And maybe they'll even kick me in the nuts.

I'd rather get gay porn in my junk mail than get kicked in the nuts. I'd prefer neither, but if it came down to it, at least the gay porn is manageable.
>>
>>120180838

Goddammit, no.

Whenever we have shitty mods, there was only one person to blame: moot.

If the users had any say in mod selection, we'll have thousands of people to blame.

The only time 4chan users argue with each other is to prove whose waifu is better. We don't need any pseudo-political arguments going on.

Approval voting and supermajority requirements would reduce that effect a ton. 50% is probably a bad idea for exactly that reason - a mod should be respected by the vast majority of the board, not just half.

Just as long as we don't get a "veto everyone" obstructionist clique.

Every time.

What's funny though is that when 4chan dies, people will think Reddit invented memes. Hell, a lot of normalfags think that already.
>>
>>120181743

For incumbents, lists of mod actions would work. There's already the ban page - link each mod's ban/delete history, redacting anything they actually can't show, and vote for re-election.

For new mods, you have a damn good point and I guess democracy doesn't work online after all.
>>
>>120181743
>moot remains the owner of 4chan
Assuming moot makes any sort of money from 4chan, he probably won't let it go. Hell, he hasn't slammed the door on this place even when he was losing money from it; and if he did, I wouldn't blame him.
>>
>>120181868
>he has a PhD
>it's pretty much useless
>>
People who say that this site is going to stay the same are absolutely delusional. Volunteer mods and a board of directors will ruin this place simply because they are not tied to it and therefore do not care about it. moot stuck with us for this long because it was his own single creaton. Now these new leaders are going to burn this place into the ground (likely by implementing shitty new additions and trying to bring in a larger demographic). They will think of 4chan as a business to profit off of now and nothing else.

If /a/ and /v/ had the same userbase then /a/ would be filled with the same >tfw no girlfriend blog threads as /v/. The fact that there is basically a "no normalfag allowed rule" on /a/ proves you wrong. I'm not saying that there is no crossover, but it's definitely not the same userbase, people don't even argue about the same way. Just look at how /v/ talks about piracy vs /a/'s unambiguous "I don't care".

Just shut the fuck up, you faggot. /pol/ is the worst board in the entire site because you faggots can't keep your shit out of other boards. At least /b/tards are too retarded to stumble into other boards. You faggots are going to blame SJWs for moot's retirement forever when the fact is that he's leaving because you retards caused him tons of trouble on your own cancerous social justice campaign. That's what you are, a polar image of the same SJWs that you claim to fight. Both are groups of extremist retards that make the rest of the web their battleground and just annoy the shit out of everybody stuck in the middle. Kill yourself.

Nothing here is going to change for the foreseeable future unless the site is outright sold or the new batch of mods/admins go full vindictive nerdmode on us all.

Gundam threads get replies on /a/ though. Just about everything does. In fact, that's the best thing about /a/, is that taste is so diverse among the large userbase that you can discuss pretty much any anime to some extent if you make a thread right. Not everything is going to get 500 replies but there's always someone who'll talk to you.
>>
>>120183925
And I find it absolutely pathetic that you /a/utists are sucking moot's cock when no less than a month ago he had stickied "USUKA" memes on /a/. All he does is post b tier spam here, and you constantly preach about BOARD QUALITY, but when it comes to your precious leader you get emotional and beg for his cum. Do you have any idea how pathetic that is? He hates you and you're too retarded to realize it. Not /pol/, not /v/, he hates YOU and he sold you down the river.

It's not at all. Have you ever browsed any of the boards? Just because the boards are both fast doesn't mean the userbase is the same. If anything, that implies the opposite since it would be harder for a single person to browse multiple fast boards. /a/ is very isolated from the latest 4chan memes and drama which makes it quite different from the other fast boards.

I think a big change that will probably happen as soon as moot hands the reins over is someone will enable audio in webms. Moot has been the only vocal opponent of it.

At least someone gets it. You're alright, anon.

/a/'s saving grace that has kept it's quality from hitting rock bottom like /v/ did is how divided it is, so there's no hivemind.

I'm honestly delighted that /v/ hates "weebs" and shitpost at people who post anime images. That just keeps more of those fags out of /a/.

moot was a faggot, and I mean that. I really don't like him, he's a moron that did a bunch of stupid shit, not to mention he's a wannabe normie.

But he was like the dried cum that kept this place stuck together. Things will never be the same here without him.

I bet this is going to be the last straw for a lot of people. Whoever the new admin(s) is, it's bound to rub some people the wrong way. And they'll leave. Other chans will spring up, and preexisting chans will get bigger. I'm sure there will be people who stay here, but not everyone.

And anyone who tries to say this isn't a big deal or that things won't change is a moron. When other chans have gone up and been made, it's been because of stupid petty e-drama, so of course they didn't have a huge effect on the site. Something like this, a change of ownership and administration, has obviously never happened. This is a turning point in the entire site's culture, for better or for worse. From now on 4chan's history will be defined as "moot" and "post-moot". In a few years, you'll see threads where people talk about being here when moot was here, and deriding the "post-moot" newfags. I'm sure 4chan will still be around for years, but it will never be the same again. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.

Having said all that:

It's been real niggas. I hate you all, and love you all. Every faggot on every board. Shitposters of every stripe. I'll always remember this place, and won't forget about you.

The problem was that this was a post on /meta/ by an overexcited /v/irgin, where they decided it would be 'helpful' to spam that stupid COME TO INFITITY picture all over the place, making everyone think 8/a/ supported it. I hate them with a burning passion, they quite possibly screwed the only real chance we had to finally set up a new fast /a/ board. Now 8ch is on the same level as anontalk in the eyes of most of the userbase, shit sucks.

I post here for my large board needs and on a smaller chan when I want a cozy place where everybody knows my name.
It's worked for awhile, and it's not like 4chan is going anywhere. No doubt it will get more shitty, but that is the case whether or not moot is here.

He talked about the ideology of it in public discussions of it. He didn't come on the boards and start whining constantly about the evils of the system and how he was taking a stand against them.

4chan is imploding on its own. Every time I think 8shit is about to die, another shitstorm happens here. I'm not saying this to shill for it, the site should have died again a month after gamergate but shit just keeps blowing up.

>>120186564
It wasn't finances, I really think it's because he ended up feeling like an outsider, he was totally out of touch with /a/ towards the end, and all the other boards for that matter. He's still only human.

I hope he doesn't kill himself or something

I thought this at first, what actually happened was I ended up opening ~30 threads in parallel, in doing so I still have an active set of threads overall. Previously, browsing /a/ meant opening a single thread and reading that, maybe 1-3 of them per day.

>>120186931
Most of the bullshit in the last year hasn't affected /a/ though, at least not yet. /a/ may be on the decline but it's still a serviceable platform for anime discussion and easily the best place for anime discussion in the west. Not to mention possibly being the best board on the site right now.

/moe/ isn't so bad as long as you can get over the fact that some of them throw fits over lewd images.

Both moe and meguca are much much smaller than anything you'll find on 4chan though. It's a completely different experience. Small boards are good in addition to /a/, but they aren't good replacements.
>>
>>120187013
>But the last safeguard is gone and the usual cycle of nepotism will begin
I never actually thought about that, but you're right for as stubborn as he was with the userbase he was the same with the mods, nothing they said could ever influence him. It could end badly, as I recall the senior community manager was Rapeape, so we're in for a fun time.
>>
>>120187038
>there are other /a/s out there even if 4chan goes down.
This single moderately fast off-topic thread is faster than any given one of them, and faster than almost all of them combined.

I browse about 20 threads here at a given time, and even that is slowish for me. Each one of those threads is faster than entire boards elsewhere.

That and there's no AppchanX-alike that I know of that works on other chans. I'm too comfy here, far too comfy.

I don't see how /a/ isn't kill.

All the oldfags left this site back in like 2009 anyways and has been replaced by a steady supply of redditors since. Moot gave up years ago, this is just him officially giving up. I would be interested to see how many people have stuck through with this site after all these years.
>>
>>120187338
Never because the site will be dead by then.
>>
>>120181014
Pretty certain he isn't selling it, he's just not running it at all.

I think even moot knows that there aren't very many people who can be trusted to be the "owner" of the site, and I'm willing to bet that not many of the those trustworthy, competent people even want to potentially be publicly associated with this site.

I give 4chan another 10 or 15 years, when the current generation of administrating mods will want to move on, and then the site will either actually face extinction or be unusably shit for the people who regulared here pre-2008/people who actually understand 4chan's culture and what makes it good.

Unless you like having conversations with yourself, none of them will ever be fast enough to be able to efficiently waste every day of your life browsing them 24/7 like /a/ is.

Everyone has been saying the same shit way before that date.
>>
>>120187231

Exactly. My fear isn't in the board suddenly dropping tomorrow. It's in a repeat of the downfall of SA, with a slow takeover of the administration staff (or a coup that takes mere minutes, happens) by replacing outgoing members with friends and cohorts. Soon they have enough cronies to do what they want with impunity and they simply mold 4chan as they see fit. Facebook integration, the end of anonposting, anything.

That's what scares me.
>>
>>120187444
I want to know if these people will have a face or will they be completely anonymous and have no presence. I think 4chan will die if it's the latter since all the bad blood will just build up and lead to more and more shitposting. Mods should be anonymous but there is so much shit right now someone also needs to fix the relationship with the userbase before it pops.
>>
>>120187338
Not him but, I remember the banning lolis fiasco but I didn't know the mods name. Is he really still a mod?
>>
>>120187461
My point was you, I, and everyone else here will go there to try it out, either out of habit or desperation, and it'll slowly but surely make its way back to 4chin status. Even if we have to endure the slow migration process for a month or so.

Again, this place would have to die first though, /a/ is stubborn enough to hang around even if their chair was on fire.
>>
>>120186757
m8, everything has changed.

This isn't some stupid e-drama that pops up once a year where people swear off 4chan and go to another chan for a few minutes before coming back (e.g. /b/ day, chanology, /pol/ and /r9k/ being deleted, gamergate, etc.) moot is leaving. 4chan will continue to exist, but 4chan as you know it is dead.
>>
>>120187722
>you, I, and everyone else here will go there to try it out, either out of habit or desperation, and it'll slowly but surely make its way back to 4chin status
I went there out of desperation and the first thing I saw on their /a/ was how Attack on Titan was a masterpiece and how we hate it because we're "anime pros"

That and their haffchan meme makes me deeply mistrust what's clearly an undercurrent of faggotry that might not ever get fixed.

As long as we can keep our anonymity, this site will always have something you can't really get anywhere else. Especially with everyone wanting to integrate their Facebook with their Instagram with their yelp etc etc. 4chan is one of the few places you have to actually read a post at face value instead of judging it off a profile picture, post count or upvotes. The day we get any sort of registration system is the day it is really all over

Maybe one of the "few senior volunteers" moot mentioned will step up/be chosen as the "face of 4chan".

Then again, Steve Jobs once retired from running Apple, then came when he felt like things were being too badly fucked up.
It's entirely possible that if the people running this site start to turn to actual shit after a few years, moot will come out of retirement and run things for another 5 years or so until he can find replacements that will make this site last forever. Or so I tell myself.

The /a/ mods are pretty good and responsive to shitposting. It's just the board that's too slow and smells like /v/. If 8ch ever got more popular it'll probably devolve into more meta drama considering how easy it is to divide boards too and split off.

I think 2^3chan's two biggest failings are that it's basically an entire containment chan for /v/ and /pol/, and the fact that literally anyone can do some reddit-tier drama shit and set up a new board because they got buttblasted.

I thought this at first, but the fact is it simply doesn't happen. There was one time I recall that a board got sick of its mods, and in the space of a few hours had entirely migrated to a different board, but there was only ever one instance of that. Anons tend to stay put unless there's something seriously wrong with the mods, everyone has a very strong bias against balkanisation, both here and over there. Keep in mind, 8ch has been ticking along for the past 5 months now, I'm convinced at this point it's going to be a permanent fixture of the web, or at least for many years to come.

wait what's the logic behind this? So what if someone makes drama and makes a new board if he can't grow a user base because he's the one doing the drama. Places that contain discussion don't disintegrate that easily I think though I could use some examples if it's as easy as you say. I mean I see alternatives there for their shitty /v/ board but they are basically trafficless.
Must be some insane mod drama to cause a massive shift like you say.

The most depressing part of all this is that three months from now I'll be back to shitflinging and circlejerking here in /a/ like nothing ever changed.
>>
>>120189964
I'm giving my honest opinion, I really hate how everything is labelled 'shill' these days, I legitimately think it's our best bet for a replacement board, IF we could actually go there as a group. The site guarantees good moderation that reflects the community, it's the best system for a chan I know of so far.
>>
The only difference about this is that m00t is finally gone. That's what people can't handle.

>>120183925

This.

Am I wrong? You're trying your hardest to convince us otherwise and we've seen how shit it actually is.
>>
>>120190251
They claim that the mods are SJW and want to make a safe space but I don't care.
If they try to fucking take away my lolis again though I will shitpost this place to hell and earth and leave if they don't go back on it. Mark my words.
>>
>>120176754
The day this site goes down, is the day I actually off myself, anon. No matter how successful, or how much my life improves until then, I'll do it. And I'll do it so that all the anons of old can see it, because that's what m00t would've wanted.

It's more fun this way.

I always feel a little scared when a changes happens in 4chan. But today, I feel sad. Like I accepted that we are fucked.
>>
>>120190690

>>120190690
If 4chan dies, I'll get off night shift, which actually encourages NEET behavior and go back to school.

It'll suck either way.

The site itself doesn't have any reason to go down. Only the userbase could change due to different management of the mod team. As long as the shekel pass sells the money keeps on going into their hands.

Nothing s going to change at least immediately on 4chan.

You think moot gives a shit?

/a/ is so incredibly insulated from reality. How... unsurprising.
>>
>>120191021
I didn't say it did. I'm just saying, that on the day this place does finally close it's doors, I'll be walking right out with it. I cannot leave this place, no matter how bad it gets.

>>120191196
Were you not entertained enough with shitposting in /pol/? Don't you have some fucking sticky on your shitty 7-chan clone?

>>120191196
When you say it like you're not a part of /a/ we don't give a shit. /pol/ you cannot come in here and expect us to listen to you when you're acting like a self-righteous prick, even if you actually are right about something.

Just ingore and report them, they still think they're in good company; like they'll someday be able to make everyone "wake up". The rest of the site isn't like /pol/, but /v/ and /pol/ itself can't understand that.

Maybe by the time 4chan dies I'll be proficient enough to just migrant to futaba.
It'll never be the same though ;_;

>>120191407
I'm not glad, that just means there's no safety valve for Rapeape and Redwood anymore, this place was a mootocracy, now you have all those same control structures all in place but a different person at the helm, the site is going to change there's no doubt about that.

Nothing changed? How can you say that?
Now we can't browse /a/ without the comforting thought of getting trolled by moot at any given moment.
>>
>>120191500
It's so painfully easy to spot you guys, it isn't even worth getting riled up over. Regardless, what I say is the truth. The only thing that would stop me, is if I somehow ended up accidentally dying, or being murdered.

>>120191479
I know, I'm really just bitter because I view them as the prime reason everything went to shit, the ones that convinced everyone that 8/a/ was somehow a /pol/ effort, causing everyone to adopt the mentality of going down with the ship. Now it's more likely than ever that we'll be locked into this site as it begins its slow slide under Rapeape, because everyone is now resistant to the idea of rebuilding /a/ offsite.

There's nothing to 'spot'

You are a melodramatic edgelord teenager who is considering ending his life over an internet hangout for teenagers. You might as well be killing yourself over habbo hotel or club penguin. You are a little fucking baby who needs to grow up and stop stewing in angst.

>>120191730
I don't mind the first two, mainly because I don't need someone recommending doujinshi to me. Hentaifu was never appealing, mainly because most hentai is fucking terrible to look at. I'm all for the threads being around though, I just wouldn't miss them.

>>120191783
If you're not the least bit bothered by the idea of this place disappearing completely, then you're the one that doesn't belong you fucking retard. I love your superb use of buzzwords to cake your post, so as to really drive that point home! Go fuck yourself, you fucking shitlord.

Kimo broke his back protecting this board, but his inner anon got the better of him. The remaining moderators and janitors have no idea how this board works, and it's also because of Kimo's autistic obsession with the quality of this specific board.

>>120191947
I just really hope we can get someone like him again.

Same, except instead of "best friend" it's "only friend". In a way, moot was more of a parent to me than either of my parents.

8 is quite a bit different though. 3-8 was just scientology shit, 8 is like 4 back when it had /l/ and /guro/, but now also with /i/.

It's also difference a difference in governing. The former was a traditional imageboard with top-down control of boards, the latter lets anyone start boards and has almost no top-down moderation from the domain admins. In other words, it can function semi-autonomously even if the owner goes AFK, so long as funds keep up and the bill is paid. If there's a demand for a new board, it can be created.
>>
>>120194567

Yeah, I realized this while spending my 23rd birthday alone, watching animu and shitposting in this board with the lights out.

Then I considered the fact that I've *never* invited anyone to my birthday, not even as a child. Even in school I never went over to anyone's houses.

BRB, alcohol

For me it's that feel when you've experienced a touching moment, made even sadder by knowing you won't remember it 10 years down the road.
>>
>>120194759
That's hard to believe. You have to have had at least one friend. Thinking back, I don't think I've had a real friend since fucking junior high. 4chan was my only solace when I was in high school.

It is already tomorrow for me. I woke up and checked the catalog as usual. And nothing has changed.

Almost. I'll never be the same again.

>>120195793
I usually grab my phone and immediately browse the catalog when I wake up, before even getting out of bed. It feels kind of bad knowing that it's the first thing I do every morning.
