And I think it's not difficult to just accept certain norms when you are part of a community.
/a/ hates emoticons. Posting them is a sign that you need to lurk more or that you are intentionally breaking the rules.
In either case, you're in the wrong.

Unless you're being retarded and associating global rule 6 with emoticons, I really doubt there's any rule that it breaks.
Assuming mob mentality against emoticons is fine and all, but that doesn't mean you can blatantly claim things. I'll agree its cancer, but it shouldn't be called out every time on its rare occasions.

>>133919905
If you look at some of the other boards, it is a win. From looking over all the boards before and after, it may has well have saved /pol/ despite people trying to work around it. But it's practically full of kids anyways. Other boards carried on because it made no difference to them whether or not it was nigger shit or weaboo shit. But for /a/, it only made it so crossboarders didn't stand out. I don't think it will be cool anymore now that some of the other boards aren't doing it. It'll die out, but I'm not sure that niggerposting would have. Have you seen how long boards stick to the same old memes? /a/ might do so, but compared to other boards they aren't spewed every other post.

2015 has been completely shit in my opinion. I'd like to think it's gotten better slightly in the last few months, but who knows. From a mangafag perspective, it's been pretty awful. Especially 2014. /a/ follows even less manga than ever. And it's all pretty much garbage.
>>
>>133920169

Yeah, I'm probably a little blinded by the fact that I got 131313131 and 133333333. /a/ has been pretty bad in 2015, too.

I do really enjoy the ARC-V and DBS threads, though.
>>
>>133920169
> And it's all pretty much garbage.
I disagree, we've had some nice threads for IB and Tsugumomo and stuff this year. 2014 was pretty bad manga-wise, though, yeah.

>>133920198

>>133920142
The thing is, when people used to get bored, they did random shit (instead all of this circlejerking garbage everyone does now). Like, the last time people divided up images to redraw them was ages ago. As I recall, the last one was during when SnK aired in 2013. That is when I think everything really just turned to shit.

No, anon.

The drawfag threads have been going on FOR. THAT. LONG.

I remember when the drawfag threads first started. They constantly kept getting banned by the mods. Eventually, the mods gave up.

And now, you have what you see today.
>>
>>133920385
From an outsider perspective, it doesn't look like /v/ has much of a generals problem though. Sure they have other problems, but not this one. Even if it's not true, first impressions count and from what I can tell, other boards evidently know /a/ is full of generals.
>>
>>133920142
yes things change
just think there was once a time when the owner of the site was a white man
>>
>>133920451
The reason /v/ doesn't have generals is because they got so bad and clogged the board up so much that moot created /vg/ to contain them all.

>>
>>133920486
I think his point is that having random activity threads like the other anon was talking about doesn't stop generals cancer from happening, since /v/ had both until they got a containment board.

If it was 133333332, I had literally no impact in what happened. You posted too early.

If it was 133333334...better luck next time. I have gotten two millions on /b/ and three on /v/, but only ONE on /a/, and there's a good reason for that: /a/ is one of the hardest boards to get major GETs on.

I argue that the worst thing that plagues /a/ right now is the stupid amount of reposts(threads/replies).

Nothing new is being produced because everyone keeps reusing the same images(specifically for threadstarters) along with the same text. Newfags see this and monkey see monkey do. Seriously, it happens every fucking day. A good thread is made, then someone else copies it image for image and word for word and reposts it to death. Then newfags see this and try to do the same only with worst, dummer shit.

Every time there's OC that's not putting le meme text on top of an image, people complain and tells the poster to go back to reddit. That's neo-/a/ for you.

Back to the reposts. It is fucking painful. As someone who lurks for the majority of his browsing sessions, I hate seeing the same shit over and over again because people think there's value in someone dedicating his worthless time to reposting the exact same thing every single day.

Good, the smaller and the less normalfag immigrants the better. Let us be last on the site, as long as there's enough posters for threads to move at decent speeds.
>>
>>133920700
You open every general thread and compare them. They're all about the same. First for X, X is best, Why did X, Which X would you Y, X > Y > Z, and they're all just bumps to keep the thread off page 10. Is there no cognition in these people's heads?
>>
>>133920643
Yeah, it was 133333334.
I'm not that mad about it I guess since I really only go off of a general sense of timing, which in that case, off by one is pretty good.
I got a pretty good GET back in February or March. It was more like a string a GETS in one thread, so the last one was pretty hyped up.
>>
>>133920737
It's an awful spiral. You go there originally because you like X game, and you like talking to people who talk about X game.

You play X game possibly every day, or every other day. You go to the threads even when you're not playing because people talk about the game.

Then you go there out of habit. You have it open while you're browse other boards normally, and go back to it to post every now and then. And it just stays that way till you can break the cycle.
>>
>>133920734
>>133920693
But it's not that we're getting smaller, it's that the other boards are getting bigger. Actually, I think we technically are getting smaller, but that's not the problem.
>>
>>133920169
I gotta agree that 2015 has been absolutely awful year for /a/. I've always been more or less tolerant, but I really feel like the quality of the board dropped drastically after the comfy Christmas threads in 2014.

Trust me, anon: I know the dreaded feeling of being off by 1. It was the main reason why I made Cirno being off by 1 a thing.

As I said with my 133333333 though, you should NEVER give up. The next time a big GET comes around, don't be discouraged: prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
>>
>>133920826
It's not surprising, but I don't think it's good to be a well-known board on a site increasingly full of newfags who don't come here for anime. It just contaminates us more and more.

People were complaining in 2008 as well about the cancer on /a/. I believe it was called endless summer.

General threads were a natural evolution, regardless of their faults. The site became more popular. It is more convenient to find a single, main thread for a series than to find 10 separate threads all with a similar number of posts and quickly abandoned after whatever singular topic runs out of steam.

Don't jump on me about how they may have made things worse because I'm not arguing one way or the other.

You could say anything you want then use a blox related to the post.

It's really pointless. Unless you ban the words blox or something. On a board as fast as /a/ or /v/ people would probably just type random shit at the bottom of their post.

I wouldn't mind reposts sometimes if it's being used in a unique way but the way things are right now my paranoia leads me to believe there is some kind of organized shitposting movement where people go to the archive and steal posts there to repost in acive threads.

Or even worst, neo-/a/ is made up of people who can't think for themselves and truly believe what they're doing, reposting things and even talking, using the same phrases word for word that others use, is cool and is what 4chan is about.

But, like others have said, it's not hard to get around and wouldn't really do much aside from encouraging contrarians to deliberately shitpost around it.
>>
>>133921205

There isn't much of a choice. If there's a 200+ post metathread about an anime and you try to make another thread, you will literally be BANNED by the mods. The generals have a monopoly over anime discussion on this board.

I wonder if Endless Eight threads have more unique posts than the average general thread now. It's probably about the same.

But truthfully, the amount of people who don't know about the archive is crazy. Like even before moe died. People really don't know about 4chan-X or neet.

Not that anon and not a general supporter, but to be fair it's pretty convenient and easy to just open the catalog and ctrl+f to find a thread of an ongoing anime I watch. I don't have the time to lurk /a/ 15 hours a day anymore on most days, like 8 years ago. So for ongoing anime I could understand it. Fuck everything about stuff like Jojo or madoka type generals though.

Also you have the autistic idiots every season playing oldfag making threads complaining about how One-Punch Man/Fate/Umaru/whatever other random shit gets spammed that season has 7 or 10 threads up at the same time and call it absolute cancer. I mean you can shit on their fanbases all you want. They're not much different than us 7-9 years ago. People just grow older.

Even for people who hate generals, it is difficult not to naturally be drawn towards them because of the higher number of posters potentially viewing that thread.

But I don't think that is the problem. There isn't anything wrong with posting in one thread over another of the same kind because it has more people viewing that thread. The problem is these generals become filled with endless reposts that spread from one general's current thread to the next one after that one dies.

They're generals and have some cancer but are mostly free of /soc/ bullshit that stuff like Madoka does, or at least they didn't earlier this year when I finally got tired of One Piece.

It has to be true some of the time. And if it's true some of the time, it might catch on.

I lurk pretty every day and browse through the catalog so noticing these kinds of things is inevitable. The patterns of threads being posted and that will be posted. I can almost always predict what replies certain threads will get or if that thread will get replies at all.

So just by paying attention, you can really see it happen some times. A thread with the exact image and the exact text as one that happened a few days before. You can only assume that it's the same OP who is asspained his thread didn't become popular or it's someone who stole his post because it was popular.

Less than 15%. According to Moot back on /q/, visible sage was used by almost 30% of the userbase at any given time, which was too many because sage was never intended to be a form of "downvoting" just a way to post without bumping a thread because you thought it didn't deserve to be bumped to page 1. So he deactivated visible sage and made it so that having Sage in your name as a substitute would just fail your post, so that people would use Sage more judiciously, like sprinkling it on chicken.

I started browsing in 2010 and for around two years all I did was lurk.

Around this time lurk more was a thing and people didn't spoonfeed(and if they did it would be in an elaborate way) so I was often afraid of posting something that would piss off everyone. I didn't use emoticons and never asked for sauce.

There was a sense of culture and board unity.

Nowadays, when new people come here they start posting right away and never lurk because 4chan has become such a relaxed environment now that there's no reason to. There will always be a less-new-newfag to spoonfeed someone. There will always be less-new-newfags pretending to be oldfags and telling the people who complain about newfags that they're trying too hard to fit in.

But it's probably because people go into that thread and then see the same shit posted every single time so they brush it off.

On another note, what kind of OC would you like to see on /a/?

I rarely make threads, maybe once or twice a month, but they're usually only loosely related to anime/manga. I always edit images and make fresh content for these threads. Since lurking from 2010, I had always been in love with seeing caps of legacy epic threads that happened in the past and aspire to reach that level with my occasional thread. I had some successful ones but also many failures.

I'm not sure what you mean. Generals seem like a protective hub against /a/'s policy. I don't browse generals, but I've been to the Jojo and SnK generals a while ago. Nobody bothers going there, so there's a lot of /v/-tier shitposting that isn't called out. Generals should be wiped.

I still don't understand why mods warn people for reporting emoticons.

I always like stuff from different series edited together. It's fun seeing the connections people make. There were some Ideon-Bahamut ones last year that were pretty good, and occasionally WEG threads have good ones.

Sage was never meant to be "aggressive". Goddamn you're talking about it as though you understand while at the same time clearly clueless. Try lurking some 2ch and 2chan boards to get a feel for it. Their saged posts are indicated in the name and post number row/field.

EoP is legitimate, though.
You cannot get pissy at being an EoP is you are happy to tell dubfags and streamfags to fuck off.
There is no excuse for being an EoP. It would be like defending tards on /co/ for not being able to read English. Like it or not, /a/ wasn't created for outsiders, it was made for people with legitimate interests. By default EoPs are tertiary and are on the same level as facebook fags who argue about power level shit on youtube clips of Dragon Ball xyz.

>Dubs G-Ai

Patrick Bateman falls in love with his dubs.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with dub-finding bot. Never minding the strange repeating digits, he immediately uses it, and is overjoyed to find out that the dubs have a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he engages in more dubs getting ways, he instead acquires singles. Confused by these turn of events, the Wall Street businessman investigates and finds out that the dubs he made is not the same dubs he fell in love with. In fact, the dubs don't exist in this universe at all. They are dubs from an alternate universe, who has fallen in love with the MC's own psycho self, who too is blissfully unaware of their crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While they shitpost all over 4chan, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of DUBS.

It wasn't too long ago that the OPM threads were relatively nice when it was manga only. It's honestly a shame that it brought in so many crossboarders because it's not THAT bad but the people feel the need to say it's shit to scare off the crossboarders or never read the manga.

When 4chan introduced ads for the first time JList shoved their big ass deep in to it. One of the text on it was "Life-like texture ;_;" for what I remember was no reason.

That's why ;_; is accepted. Newfags will ALWAYS disagree because they have no idea of this fact.

Don't fuck with me.

I really don't see how people enjoy this website but I've been on it for quite some time now. It's the same rehashed shit the majority of the time but I can't really break away from it. I'm genuinely annoyed by almost every single thread I see and I don't know why.

It's bizarre, but I digress.

Emoticons get deleted for shitposting. Deluding yourself into thinking that they are not against the rules when they clearly being treated as rule violations is the retarded thing to do.
Lurk more.

Have you guys seen Attack on Titan, you should go buy the 6 Blu-ray boxset for only the cheap price of 650 USD and if you buy today, you can get your very own super rare Mikasa holofoil trading card while stocks last.

Lurked since 2008 and started posting regularly since 2010. Pretty much new/cancer.

I don't get it when some say this, how can you go on 4chan for 3 years without going on /a/?

/a/ is the only board I've ever consistently browsed besides occasional visits to /m/ .

3.0 + 1.0 didn't get dubbed due to issues with Anno so I didn't watch it.
Haruhi Season 3 was not well received. It was animated by Trigger.
Spice and Wolf season three was cancelled due to lack of interest, much like dinner and birthdays.

>I don't get it when some say this, how can you go on 4chan for 3 years without going on /a/?

Because like the majority of people here I found out about 4chan through /b/.

After my year there I switched to /sp/ and /v/. The only reason why I started watching anime (and subsequently came here) was because of people posting K-on! pictures in /sp/ game threads. Mugi was cute enough to bring me here in 2013.

/sp/ is the only reason why I'm here. Can't think of the last time I spent more than 5 minutes on /v/. Moved onto /vr/ instead. Still go on /sp/, but fuck has it gotten bad over the past two or so years. At least the wwe generals got moved to /asp/
>>
>>133924798
I'm sorta the same as you (2008, then started regularly posting on/a/ around that time as well.)

I actually started in /w/ then made my way to /c/ then eventually /a/.

Used to just go to 4chan for animu pictures and stuff.

Not him, but I started coming here for the 2d porn boards and /b/ for loli and shitposting. Only got drawn into watching seasonal anime and migrated to /a/ years later.
