New Rules (See >>147386171):
1. /a/ won't be split into /a/ and /ma/ nor will it merge with any other board.
2. LNs and gookshit are allowed on /a/.
3. Underage Bait like lol, kys, cuck and so on will result in a ban.
4. Board Based Mods have to be introduced.
Hiro has asked us to create a thread on each board for discussing the problems that are facing us and how to deal with them. He also wants us to create our own set of rules so that the mods will be regulated to follow them.
Remember mods, Hiro talked to you guys and you said it was fine to have one ongoing thread up about this.
1. Improve consistency of guidelines from board to board. Threads about our anime/manga collection and what we should watch next are considered "blogging" here and deleted/banned, but similar threads (collections and recommendations) are acceptable on other boards, like /k/. Inconsistent application of guidelines leads to confusion and resentment, especially when sneaky moderation tactics like "auto-sage" are used on threads that have not yet hit any bump limits.
2. Mods should stop abusing short bans and should take ban appeals more seriously instead of blanket denying/blocking all appeals with no transparency.
3. Bring back ability to delete own OP on all boards, eliminate requirement to delete posts before they become "too old to delete."
4. Bring back OP's ability to bump own threads. The unique IP meter is a good enough indicator of samefagging. There is no need to prevent OPs from bumping their own threads.
5. Bring back visible sage and educate people what it means.
6. Bring back ability to announce reports and sages.
7. Mods should stop micro-managing conversations by deleting short shitposts that no one cares about and which don't actually disrupt the thread.
8. Bring back a /z/ board where people can go if they are banned for infractions other than CP and post with no rules or post-timers.
9. Bring back /l/ where we can post lewd loli images. Trying to make /l/ threads work on /b/ is like being marooned on a desert island. Spam and non-enthusiasts filling the thread make for a bad environment, and the speed that /b/ moves means that threads die quickly and few /l/olikons hang around long.
10. Eliminate SFW requirement on /a/. A lot of anime and manga isn't safe for work. Sometimes you need to post a nude image or lewd doujin to appreciate the original work. We shouldn't have to spoiler every lewd image and other people shouldn't be browsing 4chan from work anyway.
We need to fucking ban LNfags who hype up shit that will inevitably suck and then have the nerve to say "just read the LN". They're the reason shit like ReZero gets made into anime.
>4. Bring back OP's ability to bump own threads
You need to lurk more before you get to propose rules. OPs can bump their own threads, provided their threads are active and the threads are at least 15 minutes old.
What's the concensus on these threads?
They are very /soc/ and have a lot of drama. For example, people made avatars of themselves to request art with them and then other people requested those avatars getting gangbanged on /d/ and /b/, recently 2 people started dating and many other drama I won't list.
>9. Bring back /l/ where we can post lewd loli images. Trying to make /l/ threads work on /b/ is like being marooned on a desert island.

You guys are so fucking stupid, Hiro can't make a loli board, you all know this already, why are you so stuborn?
>10. Eliminate SFW requirement on /a/. A lot of anime and manga isn't safe for work. Sometimes you need to post a nude image or lewd doujin to appreciate the original work. We shouldn't have to spoiler every lewd image and other people shouldn't be browsing 4chan from work anyway.
If you want to post lewd shit, go to fucking /h/, as a matter of fact, Sad Panda thread should go there as well.
>he thinks mods or hiro will do anything
Been lurking for 9 years, thanks. It's currently set up so a thread can 404 on some of the faster boards.
It was 30 minutes last I checked, but literally why even have the time limit. It makes less than zero sense.
Don't mangafags do the same thing?
And anime-originalfags that hype because they aren't adaptations?
And VNfags that expect the perfect route adaptations?
And directorfags/Studiofags that hype solely based on who makes it?
And seiyuufags that promote a series based on their VAs?
Strawpoll can be easily manipulated. Fuck off retard.
They've already conceited into the fact that their adaptation is going to be shit no matter which VN or manga it is. LNfags are still, to this day, in denial.
Only KyoAnifags and Triggerfags do this. And most of the time, the anime is good if not great.
I don't know anyone who does this on this board. Most of the time they're looking at the production crew before the seiyuus.
Barely any studios do this though except for trigger, and again, most of the time it's actually good.
I think the regular drawthread is fine, but WWD is pure cancer and shits up everything with drama, blogging, avatarfagging, and basically everything we don't want on /a/. Same with the waifu wednesday threads.
1. Make /ma/. /a/ is full of people who think they know, while the truth is they don't. /a/ is full of hiveslaves
fuck off, will you?
LNs are okay as long as they have been adapted partly or fully
3. add "my sides" to it. physically the worst term accepted here
5. kana captcha
6. delete /a/. i hate everyone of you
Fuck off with your shitty general.
This is the most unproductive way possible to make /a/ better. Want it to be better? Start GOOD threads and make GOOD posts yourself. The only ones who can decide how /a/ will end up are the posters themselves, new rules will do nothing.
Just look, The Robot on /r9k/ was supposed to encourage originality, but the board ended up being the most shitty, stale, stagnant, and unoriginal meme shitpost boards on the site. New shit won't change anything, only YOU can prevent the board from becoming shit by making good posts of your own.
Which is not this thread by the way.
He didn't ask for that position, he and his team didn't even know what they were getting into, it was either fight or be responsible for the fates of millions of people's lives.
And this is all Hiro fault, because of him, not even mods can delete this shit. I hate Hiro so much, I think he does this just out of spite.
>2. LNs and gookshit are allowed on /a/.
Gookshit deserves it's own board like /jp/ where they can have their doramas webtoons and idolshit. They do not belong on /a/.
LNs are fine if they have anime adaptation otherwise they belong to jp.
Also what the fuck I haven't been here just twelve hours and came to this.
Yeah, Hiro isn't going to do shit. He does this same song and dance all the time. He'll show up on /qa/ after a months-long absence, ask questions, then fuck off into the ether and maintain radio silence for five more months until it's time to come back and pretend he actually does anything of note around here.
LETS END "REI VS ASUKA" SHITPOSTING ONCE AND FOR ALL AFTER 13 LONG YEARS.
Agreed, regular drawthread produces nice OC from time to time. Sadly, right now 90% of the requests are smut that gets ignored.
>go to a expanded world
>meet half-elf girls and maids
>be treated like a guest in a mansion
>get unlimited lives
>train yourself to be tougher with each death
If Subaru had actual powers and never died, it literally would be self insert.
Reposting for janitor, all shitposts in last thread, hoping a mod could ban them.
Requires no login:
>this thread and >>147386171
I just can't stop laughing right now.
Excluding shitty webtoons and just focusing on comic-based ones, what about them is disgusting? All of their plotlines and themes are found in popular manga on /a/ and all asian names sound weird.
Enforce the report and move on idea, if someone is bumping a thread to play junior mod and complain about people in it breaking rules instead of just reporting and ignoring it they're part of the problem.
So let's just get this out in the open - with multimedia stuff like Dangan Ronpa and Fate Stay Night - is that allowed on /a/?
>all of their plotlines and themes are found in popular manga
not really, no.
>and all asian names sound werid
Again, not really, but I don't understand why you think that particular piece of information matters in the subject we're discussing here
Refund what? The people who's houses got destroyed in the fighting? The Federation should pay for that for conducting tests without informing the colony, not some random soldier who was just following orders. And BLM protesters? I don't remember any protesters at all let alone one taking his microphone.
Face it Anon, if you were in a situation where you had to go against all your survival instincts you'd do the same thing he did but without changing your mind at the end, especially when a nation as brutal as Zeon have their finger on the trigger.
Two things need to happen
1) The ability to bump your own threads needs to come back. We have IP counters so we can see if someone is bumping a thread for no reason. Bumping a thread is good when you're dumping a manga
2) The cooldown needs to go back to being 30 seconds. Dumping even a chapter can take 30 minutes right now. People don't have that kind of time
Anon, do you actually think the pathetic insults people spew make people stop? No one is bothered by the insults of anonymous weeaboos, especially not when the thing they're getting pissed at you about is asking for information. Asking people giving sauce to also explain basic search techniques is a far better solution than banning people for being helpful.
>/a/ won't be split into /a/ and /ma/
Fuck that, free me from these illiterate anime watching fagolas
>starts posting memes because he doesn't like being accurately described
Starting to hope that bit in the OP
>3. Underage Bait like lol, kys, cuck and so on will result in a ban.
>on an image board
Do you even know why manga is dumped here
of the Abyss? I think that's manhwa, though I don't know for sure.
Off the top of my head, the non-webtoon, not-also-pubished-in-Japan manhwa that have/had any sort of discussion on /a/ are that, Veritas, and Breaker, and for manhua it's just Ravages of Time. Lim-Dall-Young's stuff (all the stuff I know of, at least) is published in both, SAO was published in both, Song of the Long March is published in both. Boichi's a Korean-born immigrant who writes in nip and his stuff is initially published in Japan, it's manga.
They do it across 4chan. It regularly happens to me on /pol/ when I report the obviously off-topic threads, but here's one example when it happened to me on /a/: >>147389130.
It's basically a big discouragement to people reporting bad posts. And I don't even report that many posts!
>Weeaboo (a.k.a Wapanese) is an English slang used to describe a person (typically of non-Asian descent) who prefers Japan and all things in Japanese over one’s indigenous culture.
Yes I do know what it means, do you?
>Why are you eve here?
I like to discuss anime and manga sometimes.
>You know words can have multiple meanings AND those meanings can change over time right?
You should use the appropriate meaning depending the board you're on. We don't call ourselves "weebs", if you haven't noticed yet. Please respect this while posting here.
If I wanted to visit a site where circlejerks were encouraged I'd visit reddit thanks. I don't care what "we" call ourselves, by a commonly recognized definition of the word, many people who post here are weeaboos, so that's how I'll refer to them.
I never said that but if it makes you feel cool to believe that I said it go ahead.
So the board should only be filled with imaginary people that are "meant to be here"? Everyone was new at one point, no one actually lurked for 2 years before posting.
Stop replying to this forced meta shit if you agree it shouldn't be discussed. Some drama queen OP hiding behind Hiro's naivete =/= the will of the board. Spamming =/= self moderation. Hiro said to discuss. That does not, mean play armchair admin proposing /qa/ tier sweeping changes on the board/site and forcing these threads to be literally a new general. In doing so you are being complete hypocrites, going against fucking everything you think you believe is good for /a/ if you can't help but keep these threads alive for the sake of pushing retarded and/or unrealistic nannying demands with no solutions to account for the fallout the changes would cause (no, /ag/ is not a good idea, remove yourself if you think it is).
The board is chugging along just fine outside of here and some of you sorry lot of overreacting whiners think we are in need of major sweeping changes. Some of your guys' fucking autistic inability to tolerate people liking certain series in peace is in reality, not a board problem but a you, yes (you) problem. Mods can't fix it; fix yourself. That is, grow up. This is a shared space. You don't own the board, you are one of fucking millions of users and not everyone is going to be a clone of you. Welcome to population dynamics 101.
Moderation can't stop these threads. You will have to exercise real self-restraint. The real self moderation is an invisible hand, where threads that are too shitty for anyone to dignify with responses and they die from falling off the board with 2 replies. It's not to force everyone to see the thread nonstop for as long as possible by spamming it. That only magnifies the thread, making mountains out of molehiles. Saging while spamming doesn't do shit because so many people these days use the catalog by creation date or last reply. Fucking show each other that we have some collective restraint to stop ourselves from this shit, /a/. These threads won't die as long as you keep fucking replying to them.
Because if you're not elitist you have to admit you just want a nice safe space like you can much more easily create on reddit? Because people use words you don't like? I'm sorry but I just don't understand what you're getting at here.
Shiggy diggy you don't unironically think this? The issue with spoonfeeding is that it's "give a man a fish" thinking, not "teach a man to fish" thinking. The behavior people learn when spoonfed is that it's okay to act like a tard because people will help and benefit you for that behavior. Lurk moar, that is seriously legitimately the only thing people need to keep in mind when using 4chan. If you want to teach a man to fish you teach him patience first. It is literally one job and most newfags can't even manage that.
We went from newfags who liked shit like "The Rules of The Internet" to newfags who think "There are no Rules!". Tell me that isn't a decline.
I'm guessing janitors can only delete posts less than 10 minutes old or something. Very strange to see this.
>when you rage reply to the wrong post
The reverse image search links have been a part of the native 4chan extension for years. If people can't figure out how to use those links through experimentation, then they don't belong here.
If you need to be reminded that you can Google something, it's a wonder that you don't need to be reminded to breathe in and then out
>1. /a/ won't be split into /a/ and /ma/ nor will it merge with any other board.
How's this a rule, just let /a/ be.
>2. LNs and gookshit are allowed on /a/.
Gookshit goes to /co/.
>3. Underage Bait like lol, kys, cuck and so on will result in a ban.
This has always been a bannable offense.
>4. Board Based Mods have to be introduced.
This is a fucking 4chan thing, not /a/ only thing.
Also ban >>147392739 this fucker forcing shit here.
All they do is destroy any kind of discussion a series can have on /a/ because they will always become tumblr-lite circlejerks with people who don't give a shit about the rest of the board and only want to spam their fucking memeshit instead of actual discussion and even if you try to make a proper thread yourself you will always just get directed back to the general.
This shit happened to JoJo and now it's borderline impossible to discuss on /a/.
Also, bring back lurk more and healthy elitism, don't coddle obvious newcomers who don't even try to learn how things work.
Bring back visible sage and the old noko behaviour.
No board splitting of any kind, fuck off /ma/fags.
This general is an eyesore, this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general this general
Calm down, I'm fine with you not wanting to be a decent person but don't say you're teaching them something, you're not teaching anything at all.
Board culture is not a set of rules anon. I know you really really wish it was, but it isn't. Sorry you need a strict set of rules of behavior to function properly but most people are okay with a pretty light touch.
There would literally be no loss if it was never posted again.
Only the same few people bother to post in it.
It encourages daily spam under assumption it will become "board culture".
I think the problem isn't self proclaimed "/a/nons", but casuals that only browse for the sake of one show or general. These people aren't a minority and don't care about the state of the board, so nothing discussed here will achieve anything anyway.
Generals can ever be fully banned since they're a symptom of the heavily diminished quality of the userbase, and not some outside entity. The no fun brigade mostly drove out everyone of worth, or demoralized them almost completely, years ago, so you're never going to really go back to the non-general, OC-creating /a/ ever again.
Fuck you. /a/ has been all about fishing since the early days.
>anybody who thinks pointless "inside joke" thread is annoying is new
There is no point for it to continue to exist. It's same people posting [s4s] tier retardation in every fish thread
>Threads about our anime/manga collection and what we should watch next are considered "blogging" here and deleted/banned, but similar threads (collections and recommendations) are acceptable on other boards, like /k/.
Threads like that on /k/ don't invite hordes of underage newfags after they saw OPM on Toonami. The very last thing we need here is a rec general. You can go brag about your manga collection in the buyfag thread.
What happened to the OC-creating /a/ was /jp/ came about and a bunch of people went and had fun there for a few years. Then /jp/ got shitposted to death and I don't know where those people went afterwards, either back here, or to other boards, or off the site.
Think about it, 2007 /a/ had crazy shit everywhere because /jp/ didn't exist yet. It was primetime for OC shenanigans. 2009 onward suddenly things started to dry up considerably. By 2012 the nofunallowed brigade as you call it was in full swing.
Not every board is /a/. Many have next to no weeaboos whatsoever, I know that on /a/ you get shamed for using the rest of the site but you should know it's a very large site that attracts all kinds of different people.
You have to be reaching so hard to think he's shady. The whole "he's gonna sell our data" was textbook people trying to sow seeds of malcontent in 4chan's users, organized and obvious. Sad you still buy it it m8
Hint: It would be trivial to turn 4chan into a shit website littered in ads and sponsored content. And it'd probably grow in user base like that quick. 4chan could take over 9gag, funnyjunk, and similar aggregators on its reputation alone and become a top 100 commoditized meme factory that cators to normalfags and children. It is a mark of how scrupulous its admins have been that they haven't pulled anything like that.
So was moot, with 4chan and canvas. Apparently there's more to projects that turning a profit
You're not serious right? You don't actually think the original purpose of the site is relevant over a decade later? Chances are an enormous percentage of the visitors here haven't seen anything from anime beyond the occasional smug anime girl posters.
Quick! Name one good thing about /a/!
It wasn't the split that caused OC to disappear. Split actually helped for a while. Problems started when /jp/ neets got bored of /jp/ and decided to push back to /a/ while bringing back what caused the split to happens in the first place.
Your only objection is that a recommendations general thread would be bad because it's one more thread on the board to bump off more on-topic threads into the archive. Increasing the total number of active threads is a logical way to address this concern. What's the issue?
It's not just /jp/, /a/ got buried under a mountain of spam and whatever other garbage you could think of, and tons of people just went to post animu and mango on /v/ or /co/ instead. m00t and the mods mostly let it happen too, and /v/ was basically Anime & Video games for a couple years until they caved and put in captchas.
/a/ never really recovered, it only got worse, but it's at least serviceable now that mods had that huge crackdown like 4-5 years ago.
/a/ was cancer years before /v/ was. Literally the only reason this place isn't the Facebook-tier roleplay central it was before the place got nuked is because /a/ has so many active mods and janitors scouring the board almost constantly.
Ok, you still haven't given me a reason why we should ban the phrase from the fucking board. What horrible alternate reality are you seeing that has the board in ruins if we use lol
No, recommendations general would be bad because it would invite the underage newfags who have watched only OPM on Toonami and are looking for the next big flashy cartoon to watch. You'll find more anime to watch by lurking more.
>a six year old crappy wiki page is suitable for everyone trying to figure out what anime to watch next
Either you are a tremendous newfag, or you look down on everyone else on this board to such a degree that you don't even understand the hypocrisy of your statement.
DAILY REMINDER THAT GENERALS GO AGAINST THE GOLDEN DAYS OF OLD /a/'s BOARD CULTURE
>Cause the development of cancerous micro-communities that prioritize and form their own culture

>Are enclaves for crossboarders from /v/ who only want to discuss one thing due to lack of general interest in anime/manga, thus allowing them to ruin discussion of it entirely by poisoning the threads with their trashy opinions and shitposts - which influence the general's culture and other posters to act similarly outside of said threads
>Stifle the ability of the community to discuss multiple facets of any given work at once since if you make a thread even tangentially related to a series with another up you're told to fuck off and join that one

MAKE /A/ GREAT AGAIN
BAN FUCKING GENERALS
As cancerous as blog and off-topic shit typically is (look at what it turned /v/ into), stop fucking banning well-established board-culture related content and discussion not related to specific anime. That is, STOP BANNING FUCKING R/a/DIO, sound threads, and in general the fun, irreverent, and spantaneous threads that made us originally love using this board before the wrong moderation against the wrong things turned it into a desert of monolithic generals. Also, either outright ban generals, or stop enforcing rules in such a way that forces all discussion of a series into one inbred thread that makes impossible the board-covering shitstorms that made us actually come together as a community of a whole board around series like Code Geass. If CG or TTGL aired today, with the current culture and moderation practices they would be perpetual generals that no one outside would want to visit or get involved in due to the inherently cancerous and fun-stifling discussion style of generals vs. freely created and spontaneous threads.
>misrepresenting what someone says to make them sound stupid
>direct them to some other dysfunctional website
>in a meta thread about /a/
You're an idiot. Just look at any of the "season rate" threads. It's a perfect example of what neither your shitty wiki nor any other website other than /a/ is capable of producing.
>you now remember when one faggot DDoSed 4chan for weeks
>you now remember green-oval
>you now remember how shitty it was to wake up and realize that the thread 404'd and you'd never know what was discussed at the end
>you now remember how it was when you used 4chan X or plus for the first time
Ever wonder if Cornelia is still out there, trying to post spam but gets blocked by captcha every time?
Rolling generals are a problem all over 4chan, not just /a/. /got/ used to be banned on /tv/ during the hiatus because it was just different characterfags sending each other back to you-know-where. And /co/ wasn't much better as Homestuck and Steven Universe were also banned. Just keep conversation civil and on-topic.
A lot of this. I think the last time I saw a dedicated OC thread was during KLK, and on maybe day 2 of people making edits there was already 600000000 faggots squatting in the threads telling people to let it go and how it wasn't fun anymore, instead of doing basically anything else with their lives and time.
A lot of people on /a/ just make it their mission in life to ensure nobody has fun on the internet, because I assume they're all miserably dull people and need to stamp out any bit of originality or humor they can find, lest they lose some semblance of an ability to fit in.
So basically nothing changes.
What's the fucking point?
>board is a cesspool
>better leave it as it is
I'm sure the problem is insulting the shitposters, everything will go smoothly after banning those people.
We could have had a manga board with threads about specific manga that don't die with an average of 3 replies instead of generic "manga threads", fuck you all.
>you now remember anontalk spam
>you now remember angry edgelords spamming their image of choice just to max out the image limit of your thread
>you now remember not having a captcha and being able to post new threads almost immediately after posting your previous one
>you now remember not even being able to view 4chan boards while you were banned
>you now remember changing your ISP just because the old one didn't give a dynamic IP address
>you now remember what it was like when moot changed the banned procedure so people could at least view threads while banned even if they couldn't post
Do people in this stupid fucking thread actually think anything they say will matter
>>Cause the development of cancerous micro-communities that prioritize and form their own culture
Just like boards
>>Encourage offtopic discussion due to their constant presence meaning no amount of fresh discussion material is enough to stop fags from talking about how their bloody day went and fucking roleplaying
This is against the rules
>>Are enclaves for crossboarders from /v/ who only want to discuss one thing due to lack of general interest in anime/manga, thus allowing them to ruin discussion of it entirely by poisoning the threads with their trashy opinions and shitposts - which influence the general's culture and other posters to act similarly outside of said threads
This would still happen if it were regular threads, they'd even make the threads too.
>>Stifle the ability of the community to discuss multiple facets of any given work at once since if you make a thread even tangentially related to a series with another up you're told to fuck off and join that one
Why wouldn't you discuss it in the thread that's filled with people who like discussing it?
>>Ones like the monmusu general are just thinly disguised fucking furry threads
If you don't know why furries were hated you need to stop posting.
>>There is no fucking reason any offseason series should have constant fucking pseudo-generals running from bumplimit to bumplimit regurgitating the same fucking posts over and over
Why not? If people want to discuss it that's the reason.
>you now remember that dubious windows application which was the first catalog
>you now remember accelspammer retardation and the loli end
>you now remember when moot suddenly posted in the thread
Mods need to mop the floor with these degenerates once and for all.
Just like the "stupid questions thread", "smartphone general" and a "PC building general" are all constantly on /g/ but there still are countless absolutely retarded threads?
Honestly if you can't fucking manage to find interesting shows to watch by lurking, then you probably don't belong here.
If you can go have your type of fun other places on the internet, why do you feel the need to try and force us to accept you here? Makes no fucking sense other than you just want attention and control.
The old /a/ who knew how to have fun stopped using words like "epic" and post images like feelguy because they realised they had become cancer and it was time to change.
But you faggots got so stuck to the "board culture" formed after that that you are pussified at the thought of change. you just want same shitty threads, same shitty generals, same shitty way of discussing seasonals to go on and on
>blame everything bad on generals
>episode 15 (or was it 17?) of reddit:zero happens
>everyone creates a new thread in ol' sperg fashion instead of posting in a general
>in every one of those threads there is someone complaining that OP should "contain his shit" or "post in a general and stop making new threads"
Check the archives if you don't believe me. What's it going to be then?
Fact of the matter is /a/ will be fine if you let it evolve organically. The more stupid rules to constrain it, the more mods and janitors delete things they don't like (hi Kusanagi), then the more shit /a/ will be. We used to have this cool thing called "sage" that allowed this board and /jp/ to self moderate until it was taken away. No sage doesn't make the thread go down faster but it used to be visible and that sends a message. I feel like the spirit has been lost due to this.
These days half of /a/ is reddit uppity niggers or MAL rejects who want to fit in with the elitism but 4chan's true spirit is being contrarian to the rest of world. This goes for all the old boards, not so much for the newest ones though.
New Game is AOTS fuck you if you don't agree you have shit taste.
Episode 18. And that was just shitposters flooding the board deliberately with shitty thread-topics not meant to generate interesting discussion, but simply being annoying on purpose.
You know that full well.
>Just like boards
The problem is that /a/ was objectively better when it was primarily one community with many interests, instead of a bunch of small ones begrudgingly sharing a board despite hating eachother.
>This is against the rules
All the more reason generals should be banned, as it is their natural state.
>This would still happen if it were regular threads, they'd even make the threads too.
They'd still be disencouraged from coming here more than they are now, by robbing them of a sense of community if they can't integrate into /a/
>Why wouldn't you discuss it in the thread that's filled with people who like discussing it?
Because you should be able to discuss the same work in multiple threads if you're talking about different elements rather than having all discussion of it being rounded up in a too-small space
>If you don't know why furries were hated you need to stop posting.
Re-read that sentence
>Why not? If people want to discuss it that's the reason.
Because it encourages a disruption to board culture, rule breaking, and general cancer. I'm not saying threads about out of season shows need to be banned, but endlessly rolling generals DO.
>implying there is any other way remaining
Unlike that time, now there are more newposters than oldposters. and these newposters think they know the "culture"
a /pol/ migrant who cannot form coherent statements so relies on shitty ms paint comics which don't prove anything in his favor
metaphors aren't strawmans you retard

Trump signed a pledge including pic.
The amount of obscenity cases and convictions depends heavily on the allocation of resources and focus of the Attorney General who is appointed by the president. The Bush years saw an increase in obscenity convictions while Obama's tenure saw a decrease.
Feel free to explain how a group of people with common interests that congregate in a specific place (in this case on a specific website rather than physical location) to share that interest isn't a community then.
I agree. That's not a counterargument to my post tho.
Anon disliked something, cosidered literal shit. Made a representation of how he felt about your proposal. It's not implying that the picture represents any group of people, just the one posting it.
Could you please learn to understand human comuncation.
>one thread suddenly turned into 5 days and 16 threads
Please take a look at the original source.
>The problem is that /a/ was objectively better when it was primarily one community with many interests
It still is, people don't only post in their little generals, they post in other threads too unless they're really new.
>All the more reason generals should be banned, as it is their natural state.
Why should the entire thing be banned for the actions of a few people who are directly breaking the rules?
>They'd still be disencouraged from coming here more than they are now, by robbing them of a sense of community if they can't integrate into /a/
If they come here often enough to fel at home in a general then they're likely already integrated into /a/ culture, it's not like generals are that different just because they have a few in-jokes.
>Because you should be able to discuss the same work in multiple threads if you're talking about different elements rather than having all discussion of it being rounded up in a too-small space
This is complained about waay more than generals and I don't see the issue in having to discuss certain aspects in a general, surely you'd get more people who know what they're talking about to reply to you?
>Re-read that sentence
Can you reiterate what you meant? I don't look at generals I'm not interested in but from glancing over those threads in the past it seems to just be posts like "I want to lick Centorea's marshmallowy horse pussy", it's nothing like furry threads but I may be mistaken.
>Because it encourages a disruption to board culture
I wouldn't say it's a disruption since they're so contained but I guess you could see it this way, even though it'd be the same without them being a general.
I guess it depends on the general but I haven't seen much of this at all, I guess this happens a bit in the Dragonball general since it's so entry level but I'm not sure.
>and general cancer
If we're talking about cancer there's a lot of other threads that are worse.
If ongoing wasn't his intention why haven't the mods deleted any in the last 5 days then? Why are you playing junior moderator? Are you under the impression you know how the board is meant to be run better than the people whose job it is to run it?
I can't even tell people to kill themselves anymore thanks to the new rules.
Well, I still have viper for that.
Only mouthbreathers waste money on figs.
An interesting way to stop shitposting in generals would be to do something to threads if they have a low amount of unique IPs so it's not just a circlejerk. Maybe increase the post timer if there's too few posters or something.
Manga is less popular than anime with a few exceptions and would benefit from a slower post rate.
/a/ is much faster than most boards.
>Any person who, in a circumstance described in subsection (d), knowingly produces, distributes, receives, or possesses with intent to distribute, a visual depiction of any kind, including a drawing, cartoon, sculpture, or painting, that depicts a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct; and is obscene or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be subject to the penalties provided in section 2252A(b)(1), including the penalties provided for cases involving a prior conviction.
Mandatory sentence of 5 - 20 years.
Have you ever used a slower speed board? There's a wide range between dead boards like /po/ and the fastest boards like /a/.
The middle speed boards can be very conducive to discussion and post quality.
Board for only manga discussion.
Actually force homos to go post in /y/ instead of spamming every series they take an interest in.
Poor fucking Mob Psycho has been full of gay shit for some reason, and it's incredibly obnoxious, especially since THERE'S AN ENTIRE BOARD MADE EXACTLY TO KEEP THAT SHIT OUT OF /a/
I'd say there's maybe 3 tiers of manga threads on /a/.
1. Small set of manga that consistently get lots of posters, SnK, BNHA, etc.
2. Manga that can sustain threads every so often for chapter releases and similar.
3. Everything else.
Threads in tier 3 are basically a crap shoot if they will get posters and even then they won't survive long. Tier 2 threads can do okay depending.
Effectively manga discussion on /a/ ends up obeying pareto principle where vast majority of it is discussing the same popular manga ad nauseum. There's plenty of good threads that simply can't survive on /a/ because of the board speed and proportion of /a/ that is primarily interested in manga.
Splitting boards like that doesn't always work. It's possible, even likely, that you just end up with a stagnant new board.
I would expect a manga board to end up dominated by generals for WSJ manga and a few of the more popular monthly manga like Attack on Titan or Jojo. That wouldn't really be any better for smaller series.
I don't give a fuck which homo board is it they get quarantined to, just that these quarantines exist for the sole purpose to keep that shit out of /a/
I don't see why it couldn't be middle speed, seems more likely than dead-tier.
Honestly it might end up dead simply because there's not that many people here that want to discuss manga, I'm optimistic there is though.
Maybe they've allleft since /a/ is pretty shit if you want to discuss manga beyond a chapter thread every month and WSJ.
According to Wikipedia, this whole law is in uncertain territory due to judges ruling parts of it unconstitutional, and the record on upholding convictions for it is mixed. So even if Trump gets elected, and even if he holds up his campaign promises, and even if his focus in enforcing child pornography laws were specifically on the 2D part, it's still questionable whether he'd even be able to enforce it.
It's a good thing whoever made this poll added the option to leave comments. You can see how little the retards voting in those polls know about the board that way and completely disregard their opinions.
Stupid people who don't read manga will NEVER understand that.
I'm fucking tired of explaining it.
It will have enough space to let single manga threads live for and entire day and more, possibly.
You're really overestimating how many mangafags are there. Most of people read between 3 and 10 manga. While those 10 threads will continously replace each other when they hit the limit all the others will stay alive.
>complains about generals
>tries to force this shitty thread every single time
You need to get the fuck out, and stop using the post of a gook that barely understands how this site works to defend your shitty thread of opinions on how to make this place a safespace for faggots.
