Isn't it fucking insane how none of the other boards said anything about moot or even had a minor shitstorm? The fuck happened?
>>
They don't have enough people that remember him.

We are truly the last of old 4chan.
>>
>>120291032
Except they did
>>
apparently /a/ is full of the best posters on 4chan as confirmed by moot

which means we care about this place more than alot of the boards do.

/f/ had a shitstorm, but no one visits /f/ anymore, it was filled with dread. old flashes and crying

/f/, /a/ they both care about how moot brought us this wonderful place, and without him we would have nowhere else to go.
>>
>>120291032
They go here to talk about moot for some reason. Kind of like other boards going to ghost /a/ when the site goes down.
>>
>>120291032
/a/ are the only ones who cared about the site.

Every other board just uses it as their personal toilet.

/v/ has had continuous threads. They just don't have moot on the main image.
>>
I went to /po/ and didn't see a single moot thread. Fuck that place!

this, /f/ was crying like a bitch
>>
>>120291314
Look at the /v/ catalog. There's barely any moot threads.
>>
>>120291332
/po/ is a dead board

You are very bad at attempting to fit in crossie.

Ouch

Didn't moot tell everyone a couple of hours ago to be nicer to other boards?
>>
>>120291405
I was joking, you jerk!
>>
>>120291231
I hadn't browsed /f/ in years until he mentioned it in the stream and I realized it still exists
>>
>>120291624
I love the guy, but he can be pretty wrong sometimes.
>>
>>120291624
He also said he didn't want to interfere with the site, and that anons really run 4chan.

So, elitism is staying, and from the atmosphere, stronger than ever.

This observation is just the underlying changes in 4chan so much more evident though.
>>
>>120291032
So, /a/ likes cucks.

What else is new?
>>
People had stuff when he mentioned them. /tv/, /sp/ and /pol/ mostly

Just a bit chaotic
>>
>>120291624
moot didn't get it. He also wrong about a lot of things. He claimed to be out of touch but he clearly was based on most of the things he said.

What happened with moot was that he took so much criticism and dealt with so much board politics over the years that it took it's toll on him. It got so repetitive that he ends up thinking every problem that emerges is similar to one in the past, and replies with a canned response. He thinks every time people complain about moderation it's a witch hunt over one mod. He also stopped caring about a lot of things including serious discussion, just as a defense mechanism to avoid going crazy. Half of the questions in the Q&A were misinterpreted and misanswered, like the person that complained about a mod deleting things he doesn't like and provided proof, but moot responded by saying that they're users just like us and also admitting that he doesn't keep track of what his mods do all the time.

Holy fuck, the tears.
>>
you guys are autistic, both /b/ and /sp/ the two boards i go to the most have had some good moot threads and sob stories. Then again i shouldn't get mad cuz like moot said " we're all 4channers here! /a/ seems kinda cool.
>>
>>120292316
Whatever faggot, just lurk more.
>>
Because /a/ is all that fucking matters.
>>
>>120292316
Good for you, now leave crossboarder fuck, /b/ and /sp/ are not our 4chan, no other board is anymore.
>>
>moot ends his tenure at 4chan by saying everyone should crossboard

Fuck, this is the end.
>>
I'm not sure what you're talking about OP. I browse /tg/, /jp/, and /pol/ and they all had threads about moot.

Granted, I don't think anyone but /a/ put together those sendoff letters and sung Komm Susser Todd. /b/ made a song but it was just one or two guys by the sounds of it, not dozens of people
>>
>>120291032
I haven't been here for the entirely of 4chan's existence (I guess that makes me a newfag) but I've always seen moot as inconsequential to the website. Other than making upgrades and tending to the server the site does not need a "face" and I feel like he should've done this years ago.
>>
>>120292640
>I don't think anyone but /a/ put together those sendoff letters
Wrong.

/g/, /int/, /tg/, /b/, /k/, /v/ and a few others made him cards.
>>
>>120292699
Lurk more if you're staying. Otherwise, get the fuck out.
>>
>>120292494
If you have an interest in the topic, and are knowledgeable about the topic, you should post on that board. I hate the shit out of /sp/ these days, but I keep posting there because I like sports and I remember what it used to be.

Only you can make 4chan a better site.
>>
>>120292756
Nice job missing the joke fuckface. I've probably been here longer than you.
>>
>>120292748
>/tg/

Did they? Well, I guess I must've missed that thread then
>>
>>120292640
This. The other boards I visit (/n/ and /ck/) also had discussion about Moot's departure, just not the sustained posting.
>>
Bebop music on the front page
>>
>>120292699
Moot's the only person who has ever really mattered at all to this site. It will be interesting seeing how we keep this boat afloat here on out.
>>
>>120291032
I think it's because /a/ Is one of the few boards that really has no equal anywhere on the internet. I'm not trying to insult other boards or anything, it's just that every other anime community seems to be this really special kind of terrible. We've got nowhere else to go, so we appreciate this place a bit more.
>>
>>120292810
You'll do just fine here.
>>
>>120292748
/s4s/, /v/, etc.

/s4s/ is still incomprehensible to me. It's like shitposting given sentience.
>>
>>120292797
Did it used to be good?
I only started going there the last couple years when I had no one to watch NBA or CFB with. CFB gamethreads are alright but NBA general is terrible.
>>
>>120292748
/a/ put the most love into it though.
>>
>>120293003
/s4s/ is actually a pretty nice board (epic meme aside)
>>
>>120292932
>We've got nowhere else to go, so we appreciate this place a bit more.
without /a/ I would have never had any sort of discussion about anime, I would have just been some guy that would watch thing and then quietly lie down with his thoughts afterwards.
>>
>>120293139
This is precisely why I'm so terrified of /a/ dying.

If /a/ dies, so does my anime hobby.
>>
>>120291624

He said crossboarders.

I don't think people have a problem with crossboarders. Most of the time any hostility towards them is because they expect to be spoonfed and know nothing of the board they're crossboarding to. You see people asking for recommendations on /a/ and it's clearly their first time posting here.
>>
>>120293051
/sp/ up until 2011 or 2012 was amazing. Had a rough relationship with the mods though, and it eventually just got moderated to hell and turned into a wasteland of shitty generals.
>>
>>120292271
;~;
>>
>>120293292
I mean, I'll still watch anime. I just won't have anyone to talk about it with, which will be really depressing.
I'll probably miss out on some great shows too without other anons' threads.
>>
/a/ is the beating heart of 4chan, it makes sense it would feel its creator being torn from it the most. It was always the center of this site, it was the true successor to random/anime, and thus the first board. I always saw /a/ as just as special within 4chan as 4chan is within the internet. No matter what we said about each other, moot loved us, and I think most of us loved him.
>>
>>120293292
I'd still watch anime, I would just enjoy it less,
like when a really good series finishes and you have that empty feeling and /a/ is not there for you to sort out your thoughts, vent and exchange impressions
It would be painful.
>>
>>120293458
Without 4chan, I will literally have nobody to talk with about anything.

I won't be able to talk with /a/ about anime, /vg/ about games, /tg/ about board games, or /int/ about funland shitposting and various types of banter.

I need this site, it is so much to me.
>>
>>120293614
Besides /a/, all other boards are replaceable.
>>
>>120293614
The thing that sucks is that even if we had friends in real life, it's just not the same. 4chan is so unique, especially /a/.
>>
>>120293614
same here and its not like I haven't tried other things, I just end up misreble and alienated in forums and irc channels.
>>
>>120293292
This. I discovered /a/ after I had just really started getting into watching anime online around 6 or 7 years ago and /a/ just clicked for me so hard.

The jokes and the waifu faggotry, the rather zealous discussion and the various fanbases. I would not be able to enjoy anime just as I have for so long without you guys.
>>
Just imagine your /a/ folder becoming useless. And then imagine deleting because there's no /a/ to post any of it on.

Fuck, I'm tearing up.
>>
>>120293737
I don't think you realize how unfriendly your so-called "friends" in real life are until you spend time here.

I think the reason we have so much trouble connecting with others is that we become used to a level of candor and sincerity that is hard to find outside of this place.

I think moot knows this as well, which is why he feels, as I do, that this place will carry on. It's irreplaceable. End of story.
>>
>>120293889
I would keep my folder, and every once in a while, cry and fap as I browse through all the lewds and reaction images you all shared with me
>>
>>120293726
Get fucked.
>>120293737
>>120293797
I literally grew up with this site. It just fills a special role for me.

I hope it will remain alive. I really do.
>>
>>120293928
I just hope that the extent of that camraderie doesn't devolve into shouting memes at each other at the top of our lungs like the other boards, and we can still talk about anime while having a good time.
>>
I lost weight, gained muscle, became fashionable, got a girlfriend, and then dumped her because she didn't like my figurines.

4Chan made my life awesome. moot made my life awesome.
>>
>>120293928
I don't think there is a single person in my life outside of past therapists that I've been as emotionally honest with as I've been with /a/
>>
>>120291231
Holy shit, I've been here since 2004 and just found out that you can post replies on /f/. Always thought it was some sekrit reference to another site that I never caught on to.
>>
Most of them (/v/, /pol/ /b/ which are like 3/4 of the whole site) hate him already.
>>
>>120294058
Nigga what? It took you that long to just click the fucking reply button?
>>
>>120294058
I always wonder why it had so little replies
is this why?
no one knows that you can reply?

Plenty of /a/ hates him too, I think a lot of us are just sad because we're faced with our own mortality.
>>
>>120294236
I don't think the majority hate him, just his actions on the board.
>>
I was pretty mad at the lack of reaction from the other boards.
>>
>>120294236
After today's livestream, I find that any enmity I had towards moot is completely gone. He was completely different in personality than he always seemed to be from his few posts. Now I'm sad that I was only able to know the man the moment before he left.
>>
>>120294458
I know that feeling.
>>
>>120294353
I guess that might be a good way of putting it.

The way I see it, he did a ton of shit wrong and was also wrong on a lot of issues, sometimes he was even incompetent, or apathetic about things the site cared for.

But it could have been way, way worse. He was at least a sensible guy who tried to preserve the nature of 4chan, and didn't sell out or abandon us for a long time, which is a lot more than most site admins do.
