Umaru is garbage, but it's not really up most of the time, I think.
Also this, nobody tells off obvious newshits and redditors anymore.
>jojo still up
>precure still up
>bleach still up
Quite clearly he's gone.
You start throwing 3 day bans at people that willingly engage in such garbage.
I've had the pleasure of watching some fags in the monster musume general argue about the quality of the general, telling people to stop making new threads only to yet settle for the sorry state of it and interact with its dwellers.
It is ridiculous.

Relevant, useful and has new content to discuss constantly. A few idiots have come in but that isn't /djt/s fault.
Are you saying you don't like it?
Hardly a general and has constant new content to discuss.
Talks about and dumps the manga.
This post is shit.
>>What are the actually 24/7 generals
Like 98% of the fucking board at this point. Even outside of the cancer generals, their entire cancer culture is pretty much dominating every single thread on the board. Browsing /a/ these days is god awful. Everything that isn't a general or spewing general culture from is core, chances are, its a template thread and you may as well consider a lot of them generals at this point.
You are genuinely cancer if you think DJT and Buyfag threads are cancer.
As long as the general has OC or its actually useful theres no need to ban all generals. Constant generals turn into cancer but not all of them are.
I honestly don't have a problem with general threads. I understand the dislike but I also remember /a/ when there were a million bleach threads and naruto threads and one piece threads. Sure you get a duplicate jojo thread or madoka but things are cleaner and tighter.
Why are you all so angry all the time?
>people who only come on /a/ for one thread
Looking at you Jojofags.
Remind me what's the point of calling out redditors and newfags instead of ignoring them? It ends up most of the time derailling the threads and shitposting. Also if you spoonfeed someone the thing will end in 2 posts but if you tell him to fuck off and to lurk more then enjoy the shitposting ride.
>I also remember /a/ when there were a million bleach threads and naruto threads and one piece threads
That never happened. Stop making shit up.
"The big 3" were never truly even allowed on this board for MANY years. It just seems after moot left these threads have sprung up.
Yea, that's fine. Who fucking cares, that is what self-moderation is for. I'd rather threads and discussion be fucking organic then this repetitive forced garbage and cleanness.
To fit in. Hell, I'll shitpost something really cancerous and then samefag while greentext generic buzzwords like "tumblr, /v/, kissanime, etc.", and then the hivemind kicks in and get like 10 replies of the same thing I just samefagged.
That guy's a faggot, but you're new as fuck and trying to act like you're old. The very last vestiges of Naruto not being allowed were gone before moot was, and we had OP and Bleach threads regularly for ages. Remember the cancer that was Marineford?
They are probably still training/picking them, I applied, but I doubt they'll choose me.
>szs is a general
But that's wrong you fucking retard
>the e celeb threads
What e celeb threads? Last I checked, they banned those regularly.
Anyway, something was up last night, I got a warning for reporting derp_commander's shitposts. Probably no /a/ mods were on and someone from other boards was going through the report queue.
Literally the only threads I even remember remotely related to the "big 3" were Kubo threads.
But I do legitimately remember OP, Bleach, and Naruto threads always being derailed by dubsposters.
When will I finally be made a mod so I can fix /a/ already?
This is getting out of hand. Just hurry the fuck up and make me one. I've been here on /a/ for two years. I know how this shit works.
its in this >>139958620
>not a general
>thread up 24/7 for years with the same picture
>some dude dumps the same page and then people circlejerk until it 404 and they remake
>"The big 3" were never truly even allowed on this board for MANY years.
That was only true for Naruto, the mods completely left OP unchecked as it became a tumor while only occasionally cleaning up Bleach threads which thankfully quieted down as the their fanbase shrunk to irrelevance.
Do my 4 years on /sp/ and /int/ along with my 2 on /a/ count for anything?
>thread up 24/7
>circlejerk it until it 404's
Yep, you're retarded
Yeah I have no problem with people containing their shitposting to 1 thread instead of fucking 10 threads everyday that last for an hour.
The thing is, it's pretty obvious generals are not well moderated. They are like a bunch of mini-/a/s and if a janitor doesn't have the habit of visiting them, good luck.
At this point I only report thing that are clearly shitposting. Haven't been warned for a while.
Why is this fucking guy trip not banned on sight? Why are the mods allowing such a cancerous poster on /a/?
>How the fuck is this even possible?
Started on /b/ in 2011, moved around and only started watching anime because of k-on pictures on /v/.
Don't worry though, I don't really post much on any board. Mainly just on retarded threads like these.
There was a war against the Big 3 in about 2009-10ish but it eventually ended.
Officially only Naruto was banned but people wanted to expand it, the thing is the mods didn't really comply with that to my recollection, /a/ simply made Bleach/OP threads miserable for a while, but the thing is they fought back, it was just ugly.
There also was a general purge in what was it, I think 2011, which threw the board into chaos for a couple weeks. The thing was they basically came back soon after, just not in name. We still have these "totally not a general" generals today.
>their entire cancer culture is pretty much dominating every single thread on the board
I've seen people complain when there's more than one thread for a currently airing show. It's a bit worrisome.
>he had only lurked for 6 months and frequented reddit
He apparently has been using /b/ since 2009 and only left it to use other boards due to GG. He still acts like he is a /b/tard as well. Literally cancer. He also goes around acting like he knows everything about /a/ and tries to dictate how it should be ran.
>tfw you report every garbage and you are never warned
Didn't this happen like 5 or 6 years ago?
I remember back when Raildex, Strike Witches, and I think K-ON generals were on the board non-stop, it got to the point where there were parody threads like general general that actually had several hundred posts, and then some mode purged all generals for like a month or two before they started cropping up again, although they were for different fanbases.
I don't know about Aikatsu but Precure literally has a new episode a week year round. So there isn't a good reason to stop it because it's one of the few series that actually has reason to have a thread all the fucking time. It's an anime, there is literally nowhere else to logically put it.
Dear fucking lord, Jojo. You can see that anyone that posts there isn't from /a/, you can see by those disgusting not anime related reaction images that they are /v/ermin scum. They are all trash, and I want them out.
I wish the mods actually did their jobs, I report so much but most of the time the posts or threads stay up for hours.
>Last thread 404'd, so here's the next one
>No X thread? Let's fix that.
This obsession with having an active thread at all times pisses me off. I understand, I've loved a show so much I wanted to think about it nonstop, but you have to move on.
Also, DJT was better when it was one thread per day. Now it's autistic debate club.
Someone should start making false generals and make 3 threads for everything that is being contained into one thread constantly to piss off the generalfags and wake the mods up to take some form of action.
>"no kantai thread on /a/ is unacceptable"
The only time tripfagging is acceptable. Unless it's scanlator drama.
Fucking retards stop samefagging.
Why would they be allowed? They are not contributors, they are just retards who wants affection and to be different from the others. Learn the board culture and take off your trip fucking newfag
Yeah lets shit up the board even more in the hopes that the mods actually do something.
No. There is no need for /a/ to be split into any boards.
In fact, I wish LN and VN discussion were allowed on here again, or at least led to any discussion on /jp/. It's completely retarded that if you want to discuss TL'd VNs you need to go to a general cancer.
Fuck, do any of the /a/ containment boards even work? /jp/ has been dead for years and /m/ was never alive in the first place, what's even the point?
generals are not the only cancerous shit out there though.
There can be few threads that are not even daily and they can get cancerous as hell.
Just look at tokyo ghoul threads. Every weekend these threads get fucking retarded since the first post. I don't really care about this series, just addressing it
When was the last time you saw a
Containment boards do not work. The entire rest of this website and its appalling decline in quality since the turn of the decade are evidence of this. When you "solve" a problem by taking giving it its own board, you just vindicate it. They won't just happily move to the new board, they'll just take the fact that they have a new board as approval, and take all the garbage that makes them a problem and smear it everywhere in victory.
Generals are a problem because they are filled with shit and shitty posters. They are shitty because their format encourages shitty posters to sit there forever and post shit. They are shitty because they go through everything that isn't shit and then obstinately persist until there's nothing but shit left, and a designated shitting spot for shitters to shit up 24/7. It encourages stagnation. It discourages effort and creativity and original content and so that's all that's left. The problem with vindicating generals is that the people who post in generals, whop welcome them, and who don't see the problem with them see it as a sign that they quality acceptable in generals (abject shit) is thus acceptable everywhere else.
This is why the generals we "tolerate" are a problem for the rest of a board. You can smell the reek of a jojofag a mile a way because they think the standards of their shitty general are good enough to post anywhere else on /a/. You give them their own board and there'll be more low-effort posters posting shit than any level of self-moderation or freedoers could ever handle. You can't teach these people that they're wrong by just telling them to post better or reporting them so they get piddly 1 day bans.
They need to fuck off and stay fucked off. There's no place on 4chan for anime generals and for the fucking awful posters who live in them.
We agree generals suck, but what do you do to replace them? If a problem stays unsolved it will remain that way. Pointing out the problem exists doesn't do shit. Solve it.
If people want to talk about MonMusu for the 1000th time, what, do you just not let them have any thread at all, because anything surviving will probably last a few days if it gains steam? That's essentially the solution, but also is tantamount to banning them outright because you just don't like them.
If you just want to ban really popular series just because they're popular and don't foster fresh discussion or encourage user cross-pollination, which is what you're really saying when you say ban generals, that's a hard pitch to make.
>they were just calling random people Reddit
It isn't much different here or anywhere else where the posters think there is some boogieman. On /tv/ it's reddit; on /a/ it's "NEWFAG CANCER"
How would the utopi/a/ be like?
It's easy to shit on things but to find good ideas is harder. I'm not telling that you are wrong thought.
>guy makes a thread with a garbage OP
>we have to be stuck with it until it 404's because of general culture
>but what do you do to replace them?
With normal fucking threads. Which means most of the time threads only get created on release date which a lot of the time involves spam which there isn't anything wrong with and outside of release date, depending on popularity, it is sporadic. If there is nothing new to discuss the thread goddamn dies until new content comes around like what normally bloody happens for non-generals.
What the countdown has done
>Actually finished translating SZS
>Almost completed Joshiraku
>Translated end of Katte ni Kaizou
>Translating new series Kakushigoto
Thread lasts at most 3 to 4 hours like the left side of >>139958807
That guys list >>139958450 is only half generals at most.
>stick to a single thread even if the OP is shit and talk about everything of a series in there
>STOP MAKING GENERALS
>make a new thread if the OP is shit or if you want to talk about something specific not in the OP of a thread of the same series
>STOP SPAMMING THE BOARD
Make up your mind.
Yeah go and hate him it's cool
You don't replace them, you just kill them.
It's very key to establish that there don't get to be little baby communities on this board that get to be babysat. Also if all they do in those threads is talk about what x charas pussy hair tastes like and how good of a girl they would be, those threads aren't worth keeping around. That is to say all threads of that nature, not just that discussion in generals
People will complain if there are 2 or more threads up for a show at the same time no matter what.
This has always been true. Even when it was the norm for the release of a popular show to flood page 0 with redundant threads, people still whined about it.
They have and always will be a vocal minority.
Just deleting and banning them is enough. It works for rec threads, blog threads, and all assorted other types of cancer on /a/. It has worked for generals in the past, too.
The thing is, mods and janitors need to be proactive in their approach and they need to enforce their stance at all times. Allowing even one general thread, or lulling in purging them, causes many others to crop up.
>Stop spamming threads
>no general threads
Popular series are always going to have a thread. That's how it is. People are always going to want to talk about it.
You can either have a shit ton of threads about it like it used to be or have a general. Just cause you don't like the series or what have you doesn't mean it should go away.
>Relevant, useful and has new content to discuss constantly. A few idiots have come in but that isn't /djt/s fault.
No, it doesn't belong on /a/ and their op is literally used on reddit, which explains most of the posters in that general, who are openly honest about not giving a shit about /a/.
The problem with some generals is they last for days with just nothing interesting going on and being kept alive just for the sake of it.
Imo if bump limit was slashed down tremendously, like 100 posts to autosage, things would change a lot. Imagedump boards like /c/ or /e/ could keep the big threads but discussion boards that aren't intended to have days-long circlejerks can be encouraged to have faster turnover times.
I love the original system of pruning a thread because it simply got too old, i.e every thread has a set lifespan to it, but you can't put that in without it just fucking up all the slower boards. A very low bump limit would help fast boards and do almost nothing to slow boards, though.
What are some things that should be IMMEDIATELY 24 hour banned?
Writhe in the chaos
Are you guys complaining about "Not Generals" threads like manga/seasonal anime threads or stuff like drawfags and buyfags? For the former, I understand, but if you complain about currently airing stuff, I don't understand.
People would still make threads to talk about seasonal anime like we're currently doing even if they were banned. We can't start splitting boards like the admins did with /v/. It became worse and they don't even truly enforce the rules. People would still post anime/manga on the other's board. Same if you split currently airing seasonal anime and older anime.
Doesn't matter because the threads get deleted basically immediately, always. People have always been spoonfeeding but personally I see most rec threads get deleted within 30 minutes to an hour, I never see them up longer than that.
Although I did get warned yesterday for reporting a rec thread that was later deleted anyway.
I can understand everything else but why is this not allowed?
I just use imgur to host pics what's wrong with it?
Is sometimes needed.
But to add to your list
>3D reaction images
Isn't that series still just a monthly manga release?
I can't fathom how they even find anything to talk about. Even waifufaggotry can only stretch so far before it runs out of steam.
derp_commander !!SSXdvR3LCoa AKA the biggest troll/newfag on /a/ that you're STILL responding to.
>Has been tripping for less than a year
>Has been on /a/ less than a year
>visits /pol/ yet regularly tells people to go back there
>Has only seen 6 series to completion, has only been seen discussing KLK and other Toonami shit
>Contradicts himself more than /b/ (which he still uses)
>Name is fucking derp commander
Supports cross boarding
"Not" Toonami threads
Admits to have only seen 6 series in their entirety
Crying on /qa/, admitting to being a newfag on /a/ and did his homework on ED to prove his epic oldfag status
In conclusion, don't reply to him, don't tell him to fuck off just filter him and move on
>anything talking about personal life/real life - that's blogshit, not anime
>talking about other anime sites at all
>condoning or defending inferior quality ways of enjoying the medium like streaming and dubs - you're in the fucking wrong, there is no discussion to be had aside from fix your shit
Now that I think about it, pretty much every threads are shit.

Get in with the times grandpa.
I didn't know I was really hated. For real, I mean.
What thread did newshit/secondaries ruin for you guy?
DJT is basically blogging and posting screenshots of visual novels, which belong on /jp/. Their response to being told to fuck off with that is always in the same theme
>mod said we can do what we want so fuck off back to /a/
Generalfags are insufferable but when the general legitimately belongs on other boards, it is even worse.
>Who's in charge here?
Not exactly. Some years ago we only had 5 pages, a flood meant killing a bunch of active threads. The problem is that when moot expanded the board this behavior continued not because other threads were dying, but because "stop posting what I dislike in more than one thread". Unfortunately these days it's not a vocal minority anymore if it happens to be a show the trolls decide to target. Mods even endorse it by deleting or autosaging some duplicate threads.
My computer is shit so sometimes it can't load thumbnails for saved images. When that happens I usually google the image I wanted to use and use it from there.
You've got blatant crossboarders in Mayoiga threads, streamers in Boku no Hero Academia, IRC in Kiznaiver, ESL low-effort retards, /v/ announcing their present defensibly as some separate entity from /a/, reddit/tumblr-OC gifs of airing shows being posted all over, third-party hosting links not related to /a/ OC, screencaps of airing anime being posted all over other boards (visible via hash search in archives of popular images), and so on.
Is there even hope of salvaging what's left at this point?
When it was just a manga thread, and the anime wasn't out, I remember they would write a lot, and I mean, a fucking lot of fanfic, people would request, post and share their fanfics. It was post after post of the stupidest smut and delusional stories ever written. I don't know how the threads are now, but I doubt it's any better.
I think the fanfic threads are the ones that got chased off to /jp/ or /tg/ or where the fuck ever.
I know they came back after the anime but I couldn't give a fuck about their franchise so I don't bother browsing the threads.
I agree that they are an issue, but I think MonMusu and JoJo threads are bigger cancers. I even like tomboys and the threads, but they turn into circlejerks and imagedumps with no discussion
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one reporting tumblr .gifs
They're fucking awful. They are sub-gaia tier shit. There's no reason people posting that absolute trash should be tolerated, especially when we have a rule that explicitly states images should be of high quality.
I have been here for more than eight months, with you. You all have become kind of important to me. I just like to tease a little but I don't really mean it. I just want to have fun. You made me cry faggot.
At least it's not as bad as /vg/ where generals for games that are singleplayer exist just for the fanbase to circle jerk
and pretend they have friends, always keeping suicide one day away
>Yahari threads after season 2
That was probably the hottest mess i have ever seen on /a/
This episode especially just triggerd the worst shitposting i have seen in years
As a newshit who's only been here for half a year, but I've been on 4chan for about 7 years, how was /a/ before generals?
I'm genuinely curious on how you posted seasonal anime without keeping it on one thread.
Meta threads are great. It feels like they are the only time I actually talk to /a/ and not newfags pretending to be /a/
I was really into it but Season 2's art style and the state of thee threads during and after it killed the series for me. I haven't read the latest novels and don't think I will. I also hear Spyro dropped it.
This might be hard for you to follow, but what we had was: more than one thread.
I know right?
Even before generals most discussion would take place in one thread, unless it was soelme big shitstorm.
there is a huge difference between a thread about a new episode and a general
100% the biggest amount of samefagging I have ever seen in threads. 700 posts with 30 unique ips
Saekano thread is just full Eririfag vs Megumifag arguing.
It used to be fun.
You make a thread talking about something you saw. Tada
Having formerly been an advocate of the general system, I can verify that it is no good. On topic board 'spam' was much better. Not exactly like when Evafags or TMfags shit up the board though
>few years ago
>mods had enough of the monster fags general and decided to nuke them forever
>suddenly monster musume anime
>general are back
>monster musume anime end
>mods doesn't do shit
I don't understand.
There were multiple threads at a time. Multiple. During Code Geass they filled up the entire first page and then some. At some point there was an effort to keep them contained in one thread which is where the general was born.
>bring back visible sage
Give me good a reason why either of these shouldn't be implemented.
For the love of /a/, mods please enforce on-going bans on the posters in the madoka threads. You know the ones.
Saekano threads used to max out easily. Kind of sad, some of the discussions were good. I wonder if the anons just lost interest in the series or the threads were legitimately bad enough to creep them out.
>weekly shitposting thread still up
You guys do know that they are making /a/ more user friendly and that all this complaining isn't going to change anything, if you don't like this then you should have left like 50% of the /a/nons back in 2015.
Not him but I think he refer to the fact that
>3 - 5 threads about something
>FUCK YOU KEEP IT IN ONE THREAD
>1 thread about something
And this apply for everything. Nowadays I just feel that everyone is angry with everyone.
Anon, it's been fucking years, the Homura hater have been banned multiple times already, every time I check the 4chan ban page, I see him there, banned for 30 days for ban evasion, it doesn't matter. He will always come back.
>Overanalyzing the shit out one scene = quality discussion
No it's not. It's because you assholes can't keep shit in one thread is the sole reason why the generals exist in the first place.
Do you faggots even bother checking the threads you send people to before linking them? Or do you simply link whatever board sounds more fit to the job?
/ic/ fucking hates Japanese stylized drawings and will tell you to fuck off to /a/ if you ever try to make it a thing there like it is here.
