If general threads aren't to be removed (and they aren't) and the tripfags won't be banned (which, let's be realistic, they won't), i propose roundabout solutions

Enforce harsher punishment for shitposting with a tripcode, ban the tripcode itself on offenses

Harvest promising looking mods/janitors from the respective threads to keep the cancer under control. You can't stop the threads themselves but you cans slow down them decaying into /vg/ tier shit. It's pretty clear you people are undermanned and having to ping the /pol/ or the /mlp/ mod or whatever every time something needs to be removed in a thread that rolls 4-5 times a day is not going to work.

Yeah it was a solid 8/9 out of 10, Episode 131 is a masterpiece.

.Only thing /a/ needs is to work out how to deal with all this general/daily thread spam and nothing else.

I'm sick of seeing some general with about 30 posters in it latching onto an old series because they can't let go and just dumping images and circle jerking.

>>147328695
The problem is they are just making continuation threads and forcing discussion for the sake of it, I have no problem if some general pops up with like translations or some huge spoiler that sends everyone into a frenzy.

Exhentai general to one of the handful of porn boards.
Image dump threads to either /c/ or outright delete them.
Seiyuu 3DPD worship threads to /jp/.

With those gone, all that remains is actual /a/ content to moderate. Sure, there are other shitty threads but first thing is first: getting rid of shit which outright belongs on other boards.

This is bait. There is absolutely zero reason /seiyuu/ shouldn't be on /jp/. The only time it should be on /a/ is when one goes into the hospital or dies. There are seiyuu threads all the time.

Porn boards don't do discussion and it is no different to a manga thread.

Seiyuu threads are /a/ related how is this even debatable.

No VA's no anime, Nothing wrong with appreciating them.

>>147328974
Any idea of splitting /a/ into two desperate boards is not needed at all.

The problem is most of the board can't agree on anything so generals will always be a problem topic since mods can't do right or wrong.

Nonsense, They aren't even a fucking regular thing you get one like once every 2 weeks IF that.

Those are not /a/ related.
If you haven't noticed, /a/ torrents and downloads manga, and mocks anyone who admits to paying for it, ruthlessly.
>also they aren't the fastest and everything there is pretty chill.
Relevance? Let me guess, you're part of that circlejerk? The buyfag thread, like the Japanese thread, are made entirely redundant by their respective op guide sites. If you want a place where you can "chill" and talk about hotgluing and shipping costs, get a fucking IRC channel. /a/ is not your personal chatroom.

So there can't be any threads on anime/manga that aren't currently airing or being updated? I guess we should purge every discussion on finishes series. The thread being garbage isn't a reason to delete it. You not liking something doesn't mean it breaks any rules.

1) Instant ban through image the shitposters that always use the same reaction images and are known to derail threads.

2) Add a field to the report window to allow you to explain why you're reporting that post and allow you to link to the archive if necessary.

3) Allow more than one thread per series. At the moment if there are two threads of the same series one of them will be purged depending on the janitor.

4) Force anonimize as a default option.

5) More wordfilters.
tumblr -> gaia
reddit -> gaia
facebook -> gaia
tbqh -> desuwa
cuck -> kek
wtf -> MASAKA

6) Make a monthly meta sticky to discuss the state of the board.

This is proably different than Lelouch's idea of why they should be here, but you know that the threads can be more than that right? If a mod made it explicitly clear that the talk has to be about their roles/up coming roles in anime and anything out side of that (except maybe deaths, big events etc) is bannable then what is the problem?
>>
>>147328900
I think people can discuss seiyuus in the respective anime threads. But taking them out as one thread pretty much makes an idol thread.

I guess since /a/ should be for "discussion of anime and manga", since those threads don't discuss anime, they shouldn't be on /a/.
They're certainly /a/-related, just not discussions.

However, if we do shift the generals like you suggest, odds are, other boards are going to go"fuck off back to /a/, weebshits" and there'll be shit everywhere because those generals are more /a/ than /a/nything.

I therefore propose a 20 page /a/裏 where all the generals are created at or get moved to. If you want your general, you go to /a/裏 where it's out of everyone else's way. If you don't want generals, then happy you.

What could possibly go wrong?

What do you mean desperate boards? I guess your auto-correction feature changes separate to desperate.

The /na/ New Anime board would have enough content because there will always be enough new content thanks to Japan pumping out 70 shows on average, and /a/ would easily survive because it would just continue as it is thanks to manga and older anime, and then get the anime shows of the finished season to discuss in-depth by real fans instead of casuals who only want to shitpost with each another and don't care about the rest.

Is /a/ really that bad? Compared to other boards we ain't that bad, sure there will always be threads that are just plain echo chambers but that's always the case.

Check them out sometimes. They really aren't. Even /v/ talks about anime and manga more then most of those generals. The Japanese one is basically an unofficial VN general, as an example.
Do like the 裏式 concept, though. Something I've suggested over the years but almost every anon seems to hate the idea.

The problem is that mods can't tell the difference between generals and just popular series that got new info/airing series.

Board specific mods would help the problem, but that would monopolize resources. Perhaps having an /a/-centric mod that also pops in on other boards to moderate would solve that.

We are just less utter shit than the other big boards.

Also, there's nothing wrong with wanting to improve board quality.
One of the best addition to 4chan is the /wsr/ board, and it actually has improved /a/ a lot, since many newfags are being told to go ask for recommendations there, and they do so.

There are still some recommendation threads here on /a/, but those are really obvious shitpost baits made by trolls, as they always use the word animes in the opening post.
And even those aren't as ubiquitous as they were.

Allowing nudity is a slipery slope since this is a blue board. In my opinion, no nudes should ever be allowed except if it's from a show that has nudes in them or comes from official artwork.

Well intentioned but there is no way to implement this. There are a lot less tripfags than in the past. This is a non-issue at this point.

The only thing that needs to be removed are generals or threads that keep repeating once they go 404, making them chained threads rather than generals but still generals all the same.

Generals can NEVER be fixed. They become cancerous and you only realize that after they've overstayed their welcome. /a/ is usually good with generals because of new shows coming out every seasons makes everyone not make threads about a show once their done.

No it won't. There's nothing stopping anyone from making threads about old shows but no one does it because everyone fears that no one will respond. The same thing will happen if a new board for classics is made.

A NEW BOARD WILL NOT CHANGE ANYTHING.

Sorry sorry, I'm getting a little emotional.
I'm just getting annoyed of all these trolls (or real people?) suggesting to make new boards as a solution.

Why not make a manga board?
Because then you'll just make manga weekly generals of popular series, etc.

It's the same shit but for every suggestion.
DJT, sad panda, buyfag and drawfag threads are fine where they are. /a/ doesn't need to change except to purge general threads of shows that keep showing up after their shows have finished airing, like Overlord at the moment.
>>
>>147330718
>People don't memorise trips to search the archives
Speak for yourself. In the threads I visit it's common to memorize the first letters of the trips and search for them.
>>
>>147330576
>If you do that people will just make stealth generals that are harder to filter
That is already the case. You may have already noticed but using general and edition in the OP is pretty taboo on /a/ and usually gets a thread deleted from the amount of reports, though there are threads that slip though the gaps.
This is mostly an overhang from the time where generals were genuinely banned.

Also alternative is have a thread pruned after the quality drops below a certain level. Quality may be subjective but at the same time nearly anyone can tell the point where a thread is shit.

1. Admitting you're a newfag will make that the main point of your post. It only invites shitposting. It's like writing a great reply to an argument and end it with btw I'm a girl. The only replies you'll get to your great reply will be pics or gtfo.

2. Lurking refers to understanding how the board works. That reply in itself proves that you know nothing about /a/ as a board and should lurk more before replying with something unrelated. Watching anime for 12 years won't make you fit in in this board.

Once the season ends and the rabu raibu-fags still keep making threads of it which are absolutely the same as the other prior rabu raibu-sunshine threads, down to the same posts, same images, same replies, only mentioning that they want to fuck this or that raibu, image-dump and otherwise just post about their own personal life is when it's a general.

Cuteposting.

>>147331339
Comfy weekly threads about seasonal shows targeting people above the mental age of 14. Latest examples being Joker Game and 91 Days.
>>
Are generals more about themselves then the show being discussed?

Let's face it, /a/ cannot be trusted to self-moderate
>>
>>147331468
Well they can make a new thread themselves if their thread gets bumped off the board. Also threads still take between 1-2 hours fall off the board.
>>
>>147331339
Shit like rec threads and e-celebs getting deleted.
>>
>>147329352
>>
ok good threads guys but lets not make another like last time
>>
>>147331609
/a/ self moderates better than any board, that's why we've got dedicate loli, guro, and loliguro spammers
>>
>>147331339
Live translations.
>>
>>147331484
what makes a general is things like
>same topics and posts every thread
>bumped 24/7 just for the sake of being up with no real discussion toward the show
>pastebin/having an active thread so much you have a faq
>devolve into circlejerking communities

constant threads are fine if you are actually discussing the show but most shows are not so in-depth you have constant threads the whole week until the next episode
>>

Souce?

So, whats the current state of the following things?
- Are Arc-v threads ok? They used to have 24/7 content but are now an echo chamber. However, its still an ongoing show.
- Where the fuck do light novels really go? People dont really talk about them on /jp/ and going to /jp/ means being constantly called EOP if your outside the few EOP generals.

>>147331667
vigilantes are never the answer, what happens when they have a clash of interest with the general population?
>>
>>147330794
>You may have already noticed but using general and edition in the OP is pretty taboo on /a/ and usually gets a thread deleted from the amount of reports
You get banned if you report generals.

What is this, 2005? I wish we had spammers. A good gorespammer or the like could provide some much needed chemo to the website.

The main problem are the generals about shows that currently don't have an anime airing.
>>
>>147331770
Fuck off. Accelspammer and all that shit was just annoying. And the moment a spammer goes into your favorite thread you would also feel annoyed.

I'd take it over the pure unadulterated shit we get all the time every day now and for the past recent years.

Go back to /v/ with your ignorant "but you would feel the same way I feel" logic.

Even if this is bait, it still pisses me off.

What's the point even discussing this. In 4 years anime will be dead anyway, together with /a/.

Japan is basically a huge ticking time bomb when it comes to economic stability. Animation studios are already suffering from poor sales right now and once the crash happens...let's just say even the idolfags won't be able to save the industry at that point.

To make matters even worse, once the Tokyo Olympics start hundreds of news outlets will report on the Japanese doujin culture. Everything considered loli will be banned and comiket will be canceled. Otaku will chain themselves to Tokyo Big Sight and massive protests in Akihabara will cause the larger older generation of Japan to ban late night anime altogether.

It was a good ride.
>>
>>147331788
JoJo generals are the worst generals currently on this board and they have an anime currently airing.
>>
>>147331771
This happens now? I can understand drawfags doing it if they're asked, but why would your average poster bother?
>>
>>147329228
>plus you faggots aren't getting any new material until the end of this month so what's even the point of having threads now?

Banning a general because there's simply no new content posted is dumb as shit. What's the point of watching anime/reading manga if you can't discuss it?

Now banning waifu image dumps and meme spam to keep a general alive makes more sense.
>>
>>147331643
Here you go, now you can make that a dubs thread.

Ban mobile posters.

Self moderation.

>>147331853
what happens when unbannable accel spammer decides your favorite thread is shitposting and spams it in to oblivion, making you unable to discuss your favorite show?

Vigilantes always go the same way

>act in the interest of the people

Haha what.

>>147331596
This puts too much responsibility on the mods to know the ins and outs of that show and what's been discussed about it.

If something is popular enough to survive the season it aired in then so be it. Discussion should evolve naturally, including how it dies.
>>
>>147331940
they should at least have a much longer lockout between posts. 5-10 minutes maybe.

While I dont worry about the first part, the olympics do worry me greatly.

The second people find out whats somehow acceptable soft porn in japan and that it trumps that "haha japan funny and weird place" image they always had in mind, I fear Japan will call in some clean up.

Over all i just want it to be fun
All these shitty bait threads and generals make the place not fun

Not him, but was you even here during 2012? When Accelspam was at its peak the board was unusable. Didn't matter if the thread was good or bad, and it got even worse when it would strip out every thread as it pushed everything off the board.

I will agree with moving KanColle to /jp/ on condition that the browser game general in /jp/ be moved to /vg/. /jp/ will never accept having both.
>>
>>147331905
Seeing how Japan has a strong opposition to market any product(anime, vidya, etc.) overseas despite the product being in high demand, they pretty much did it to themselves.

Build me a time machine so I can go back to 10 years ago. The concept of generals suck dick and 4chan was never for static content. Just go fuck off to a forum

Not generals.

Regular or daily threads in which:
>you blog post
>you talk with each other as if you're in IRC
>you bump from page 10 every hour
>you dump images that otherwise could be put in a zip
>you make the same posts that were posted in a previous thread

How long have people been saying anime is dying/will be dead in a few years? It is nearly as bad as people saying this year will be the year of the linux desktop every year.
