Okay hotstuff, why are you selectively locking a tiny fraction of the image dump threads for public display while leaving the rest up, alongside the generals which you permit that are entirely fuck all related to /a/?
Are you telling everyone ゆるゆり isn't allowed to have a general but the Buyfag and DJT threads can?

There is virtually no difference between "general" threads and typical threads. Having a huge list of arbitrary rules isn't going to make the board any better, it's just going to cause more problems. You could use mental gymnastics to make virtually every thread on this board a "general."

Buyfag threads are constantly discussing new /a/-related content and not just being a chatroom/dump of the same dozen images that everyone has already seen before. DJT is at least constructive in theory even if the individual threads have turned to shit. Likewise with draw threads.

It really depends on what sort of thread you're making. If it's something along the lines of "Discuss" or "New X thread" then it's a general. If the OP actually has a point he wants to discuss then it's a good thread.

Of course not. It's the principle of the matter and the current action was an opportune moment to use as an anchor to really illustrate the point.
As far as the mods moving one shitposting chatroom general, good. It's still too little too late. The only way mods take action around here is when they get a lot of flack from the community in a short period of time and so it is wise to use whatever little window available to speak up. It's much better to add pressure and potentially make a fool of yourself than it is to sit idly by as the board slowly goes to shit more and more out of anon apathy and generalshitters being highly vocal and getting their way.

Because you'd be able to have threads for the discussion of every airing show on /ag/ (less than 40) and enough space for plenty of threads about miscellaneous shows. There would be no need to use /a/ anymore because /ag/ would be full of discussion about any show, and if there was no thread for what you had in mind you'd be free to make a new one.
/ag/ would completely kill /a/ for good. This has been discussed plenty of times.

Simple then

/ag/ - Shows with complete seasons and longrunning anime

/a/ - For currenlty airing anime and individual episodes, industry discussion, Seiyuu discussion, studio discussion, discussion covering multiple anime or even singular characters ect.

I would still use both boards daily.

I can make shit threads if I want to, I can also make somewhat decent threads if I wanted to, that freedom is one of the reasons why people, including me, browse this site.

Shitposting is exactly what has kept this place tricking over the years.

Imageboards are notable from forums in that discussion is fast and fleeting.
They come, and they go.
Generals continuously get made for the sake of comforting of its participants, rather than actual discussion.
What's more, because Generals last so long they develop cancerous sub-cultures within. Drawfag threads are a prime example of this.

This. But its not exactly the generals that are to blame, it was originally the increased bump limit that started it all. Back when threads would die at 250 posts it was impossible to even make a general. Shit was way too fast.

tl;dr Its never going to be good again because of how the site is designed now and from the huge increase of posters over the years.

There's no winning, really. At this point I just want to see 4chan burn. This isn't the site it used to be. I hope Hiro does something crazy and gets this place shut down.
>>
>>150086330
Except the very nature of generals promotes those things whether you like it or not. It's a seperated environment that breeds cancer and circlejerking, eventually.

Refrain from constantly having your Yuru Yuri and Yuyushiki threads up and there should be no problem, since as you said, all the posts are good. Set an example for others.

Make whatever thread you want as long as you're intending to discuss anime or manga. Generals are just glorified chatrooms that not only have the same posts over and over but they also make a series impossible to discuss. If someone wants to actually discuss jojo for example they'll just be redirected to the general.

You're all arguing over the definition of a general, but it has already been defined. Linking to past threads, numbered threads, threads with /insertseries/, or whatever other insignificant bullshit you want to spew does not make a general, and threads without these things aren't automatically not generals.

See: >>>/vg/rules/1
>>
>>150086536
The point is that people should be exposed to different things. Nobody's going to click on a general if they're not already interested in the show it was made for, since nothing in the OP will grab their attention. But if someone makes a thread about a specific event in the show, or one of its specific qualities, a person not aware of it might be more inclined to check the thread out out. Not only is this better for individuals, since it exposes them to new things and potentially expands their tastes, it's also better for the community, as it promotes spontaneity and new kinds of discussion. Imageboards get boring when people settle into a routine of posting and reading the same threads over and over again.

I know. I was there when they started to delete gup generals, then we just made a normal looking OP and kept doing it. I'm saying that this moderation is retarded and not for the users. A good portion of the users want these generals, you want them to make a million separate threads or what?

Sooooo, honest question, what is allowed on /a/ now? I mean, what if I want to make a thread about Evangelion now? I mean, there's nothing else to discuss about it, and if you just finished well too bad for you, lurk more and don't bother trying to make a thread about it here till the new movie comes out. Or what if I want to make a thread about K-on? Same issue, we can't even post images now because that's an image dump right? I'm sincerely confused, I just go to sleep and hope this was just another nipplemod incident(hey that happened the last time I went to sleep so it's the best idea).

Yes, and this board as well because it's the only place where you can have decent and fun discussions about anime.

Generals should stay on /a/ so long as they are remade the second post/image limit are hit, they should drop off page 10 first unless someone has a new chapter to post or something.

Otherwise your going to have a clusterfuck civil war on /a/, or kill /a/ by giving into to shitty 'make /ag/' posters whining.

You need moderation rules, not New boards, bans and board moving. Generals are a part of /a/ and until the board culture self moderates them out or changes dramatically so generals are no longer popular they deserve to be here.

The thread I posted in followed this format for making new OPs and it was fine, we only ever killed our own threads or the next one to drop off, rather than a thread that had any remaining potential plus we had constant content creation, TL and typsetting. I guess we just had a real general week because our Manga have been delayed and are still being TL'd now (we got moved to /c/ for some reason.)

Nobody is going to pick a show up if they aren't interested in it already.

>>
>>150086798
>Does that mean it has to be up 24x7?
Nope. But they're also not breaking the rules, as I said, and we can either let them have their containment thread or have monmusu fags and people complaining about monmusu fags in non-monmusu threads.

>>150086843

What the fuck are you talking about? Just because something's been discussed before doesn't mean you can't discuss it again. Generals are a problem because they don't have any discussions, just repeated posts over and over again 24/7. If you have something to discuss, make a thread. If you don't and you just want to make a thread for your favorite anime where you can all circlejerk each other then don't. It's pretty simple.

This should be common sense. It's fine to discuss Evangelion. Just don't make eternal threads one after the other when the current thread has run its course. Use your brain.
>Same issue, we can't even post images now because that's an image dump right?
No. I can't tell if you're being deliberately obtuse or if you're actually this stupid. You do understand the meaning of the term "image dump", correct? There's a clear difference between posting a single image and psting a large amount of images simply for the sake of posting them. Usually, you'll see this behavior in threads with a dumb "fill-in-the-blanks" OP such as "what does /a/ think of pantyhose/loli/[insert fetish here]" which is then followed by constant dumping of images related to the OP. These threads are painfully obvious in their intent and they belong elsewhere.

So long as they aren't.

I totally fucked that one up. They should totally drop off page ten before a new thread is even thought to be made.
>>
>>150086956
Nobody gives a shit about constant threads for currently airing shows. The issue is when people keep circlejerkinjg after the show ends.
>>
>>150086975
YOU ARE NOT ACCELSPAMMER! ACCELSPAMMER IS IN OUR SIDE

BAN NORMALFAGS

>>150086983
No one fucking listens to you retarded fag
>>
>>150086956
Like I said the problem is the bump limit.
>>
So when is a general a general?

Can the Yuri on Ice threads that were waiting for a preview be called as such?

I mean they had three threads in succession so it's obviously an issue.
>>
>>150086985
>people thinking the mod doing work right now is Troid

You are so fucking new it hurt to see.

They already got rid of /ai/, so they're taking a step in the right direction.
>>
>>150086975
>also ban stuff I like too because fuck the others who like it
>>
>>150086983
If someone necrobumps a thread, that only means they don't want to see it die too early. I just did it to the Natsume Yuujinchou thread because I didn't want to see it go before I watched the episode. Does that mean it's a general too?

Exactly THIS.
No one interacts anymore. Everyone just hides away in their generals, which are always being made.
As a result no one has fun together anymore.
Boards on 4chan in general don't have fun as a community anymore.
>>
Why don't mods just make /ag/ - Anime Generals
>>
>>150087006
Why does it matter though?

If people want to discuss show X and they stay in one place, what's the big deal?

It's still anime/manga, even if the anime finished or the manga ended.

If you're going to be like we'll have to have two boards for currently airing anime/manga and a board for stuff that's ended.

That's clinically retarded.
>>
>>150086999
Trips of truth.
>>
>>150086981
Yes. Meta threads are explicitly against the rules. Every post in this thread is a shitpost.
>>
>>150086890
>You can't just "force" people to take a look at an entire shopping center when they just want to go to the electronics section
But that's exactly how we did it for years. You're acting like this is an unreasonable or impossible proposition when it's already a proven method.

>>150086975
I say we revive accel spammer!

>>150087012
It'll probably die after YoI ends.
>>
>>150086940
And I've been here for a decade and can tell you that shitposting used to be an accepted practice. There wasn't this chilling effect we have today where people avoid shitposting because it's become unpopular and bannable.

Almost all the fond memories I have of this place involve shitposting in some way,or another and there's no denying that it majorly shaped what /a/ still just about is today.
>>
>>150086956
The cycle's beautiful, isn't it? Honestly, I feel like a blanket rule covering non-airing shows banning continuous threads a week after airing might do some good, but then we get shit like Megu Monday and whatnot to bypass the rules.

>Generals are a problem because they don't have any discussions, just repeated posts over and over again 24/7.
And how can you say that some thread is just repeated posts all the time if even threads that aren't in here 24/7 have gotten deleted for being generals?
>>
>>150087034
>you need to lurk more

>more
Get out.
>>
>>150086943
If you seriously think /a/ is better now than it was in even 2011-13, then you need to wake up.
>>
>>150086960
SJWs will do what they do.
>>
>>150087049
They won't because /ag/ will kill /a/'s traffic but they still want generalfags to stay in /a/ and post
>>
>>150087034
No, I just don't see the difference between a show that's airing and a show that has ended.

It's still anime and/or manga.

What is an appropriate /a/ thread keeping in mind that it can't

a) Be about a currently airing anime because that's a general
b) Be about a completed anime because that's also a general
c) Be about posting images relating to a theme because that's an image dump
d) Be about a character because that's a character worship thread
d) Be talking about anime similar to another anime because that's a request thread
e) Be a spam "what did he mean by this" "apologize" etc. shitpost

>>150087067
These guys are not lolicon. They are pedophiles who want to circlejerk with other pedophiles.

>>150087006
You clearly haven't been here for long. General threads started happening on /a/ around 2010 when K-ON S2 was airing and threads were everywhere, so shitposters wouldn't shut the fuck up about it. People started consolidating it into one place, and then the shitposters started bitching about that too.

>>150087067
Lolis are not currently airing anime, hence they need to go.

Infact, it's a thread with a theme rather than a specific topic, so ban that general.

Reaching /pol/ level of delusion here.

>>150087049
Because /a/ would become obsolete as a board, and that isn't allowed to happen as /a/ is a figurehead of 4chan.

Mods would rather ban all generalfags from /a/ and slow /a/ down to /o/ speed rather than forsaking the figure name name /a/ by making a better board than it.
