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.
Source: http://i.4cdn.org/a/1474181914334.png
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.

Anyone posting in this thread and pretending /ag/ would be different from /a/ or that generals don't exist on /a/ is too hypocritical to have opinions.

>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?
>>147382568
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.

If you want to post lewd shit, go to fucking /h/, as a matter of fact, Sad Panda thread should go there as well.

Only KyoAnifags and Triggerfags do this. And most of the time, the anime is good if not great.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

GENERALS.

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.

Generals can ever be fully banned since they're a symptom of the heavily diminished quality of the userbase, and not some outside entity.

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.

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.

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.

>>147397196

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.

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.

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.

>>147397771
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.

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

Lolis are illegal under federal law if they are determined to be obscene, which is determined most often by the jury using the Miller Test. 18 U.S. Code § 1466A.
Federal law will trump state law in any inter-state case, the law was explicitly rewritten, "affecting interstate", to make any case involving images downloaded through the internet qualify. 18 U.S. Code § 2252A.
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.

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.

>rule breaking
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.

Well, I still have viper for that.

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.

Unfortunately the kind of mod that decides to make a trial board is also the kind of mod that refuses to accept the failure of the trial and tries to force it.

See: /qst/.

On the other hand, /wsr/ was a success.

Maybe they could add a way to designate what type of thread you're making then.

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.
>>
Make it so you have to pass the JLPT N1 to post on /a/.
>>
>>147399818
There are no replies at all to the vast majority of single manga threads, idiot, what is it that you're enjoying?
Threads get swiped out by all the anime shitposting crap.

Yes. You using the quote function to greentext in an attempt to mock me won't change that.

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/
>>
>>147392739
Oh, pretty good rules so far. I like it.
>>
>>147399818
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.
>>
>>147400435
Only if it has dicks does it go to /y/, anon who tries to fit in.
What you mean is /cm/ if you actually knew the site at all.

This retard submitted this to the /qa/ thread. Good job promoting this faggotry, OP.

>>147400021
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.

>>147400403
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.

>>147399897
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.

>>147393786
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.
>>147400526
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.

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.
