Was there a general purge yesterday? I don't go on /a/ for one day and this shit happens?
Anyone care to update me on which generals are allowed now and which aren't? (I see jojo threads still up)
Generals are never going to disappear because /a/ is too used to them and the mods don't want to start a shitstorm. All they have to do is re-brand as "X thread" or "megumin monday" or whatever the fuck.
>DJT is dead for good.
Why did they move the thread to another board instead of removing the posters that misused it then first place? It's hardly a solved problem; now, we just pretend it doesn't exist.
I think the weirdest thing about having DJT moved to /int/ is it shows how many Brazilians there are in the threads, especially the one that kept remaking the threads after they got deleted.
I doubt one man could out-autist the actual /a/ userbase
Why are you linking to some random /int/ thread? We're talking about long-standing /a/ threads anon, keep up.
>butthurt BRs spamming out of anger because they only care about their circlejerk generals and not the rest of the board
>actual /a/ userbase
Meta threads are actually not that frequent if mods aren't doing anything special like a general purge. Unlike the Kancolle, or newgame/gochuumon/kirara generals, which happen on a daily basis and all look the exact same.
4chan is getting too big/expensive to maintain so maybe they're trying to get the shittiest posters to stop using the site. It's no secret that a good amount of generalfags come from other places solely for those generals.
There's a 75-90% chance that the janitors will coordinate in IRC (let's be honest, Slack) to siege threads like this and make it look like everyone agrees with the purges. They've done that sort of thing before. And, yes, sadpanda is next.
No one wants to annoy women.
on /qa/ the generalfags were claiming that only newfags want them banned, because according to them, the only oldfags left "only come to /a/ for a couple general".
These people are unbelievably delusional.
>not that frequent
If you want to believe that, do it.
The average argument for meta threads here are:
This general is better than the others because it's actually helpful.
We (I) do it because we (I) care about the board.
Anything else missing?
The problem is with very specific threads that have no purpose and all repeat themselves because they have no content. Jojo somehow belongs in that category despite having an ongoing anime and manga.
Are you telling me hiro lied to me?
/qa/ is pretty much reddit trying to change 4chan - the board. I don't know why it even exists. It's not like we had tons of meta threads before it was made.
Any series that has ended will only repeat themselves after some period of time. The only thing that could keep it alive is fan creations, which is deviantart tier shit. The odd series where a year isn't long enough may get caught by this new rule, but it would keep the overall board quality WAY up.
Hiro lies about a lot of things but he never said /a/ was receiving more traffic. The assumption that generals are being targeted now to reduce the traffic of shitty posters is simply retarded.
If /a/ loses traffic the upkeep for the website decreases. How is this hard to understand?
On that note though it would be far, far better to cull the /pol/ population. Way too many cancerous newfags from the election.
DJT losers are going after actual anime threads like Jojo now that they've lost. Sad!
The point here is that it's an inefficient use of time and effort to suddenly enforce this on /a/ when it's no longer even in the top three fastest boards. /pol/ and other shitholes could use cleaning up that would essentially decrease upkeep at a much quicker rate.
Generals for anime are a fairly recent phenomenon. Things like the drawfag general and maybe even DJT would be fine so long as they're moderated and don't devolve into off topic within off topic shitfests like they have now, but shit like jojo generals need to go. I'm baffled at how mods decided to boot DJT but not jojo generals.
Yes, but linking Colony Drop (which one of your friends runs) in the header is fine.
JoJo is for fujos. They're going to go after sadpanda next, so that the women who get their LN recommendations from Goodreads can cluck about how "_we're_ much better about that now".
Well, that's one way to show you're an idiot.
>Are you telling me hiro lied to me?
Consider the following
>claims that costs are up
>yet continue to either make or maintain pointless boards like /vip/, /trash/,
>I'm baffled at how mods decided to boot DJT but not jojo generals.
JoJo generals at least somewhat look like they belong on /a/. DJT has been against the first board rule since its inception.
None of them, I just think backseat janitors are hilariously sad people. They tried similar shit on my other homeboard a while ago too, and once I realized they left after a week and things went back to normal I figured I'd just make a hobby out of laughing at them.
The fact that you're only arguing against threads from certain series or threads for certain board-related items means that you don't know what a general actually is, or what is part of /a/ culture.
Why would you expect a mod to be competent and do their job on modern 4chan?
>>I don't understand.
Then why are you trying to backseat mod?
/vip/ is incentive for people to buy passes, as retarded as it is. It would come as no surprise if the clovers and /vip/ incentives got many people to buy passes on the day they were introduced.
The others don't matter because more often than not, those are the same users that already post on other boards. It's not as though the traffic is increasing, it's simply shifting.
>The fact that you're only arguing against threads from certain series or threads for certain board-related items means that you don't know what a general actually is, or what is part of /a/ culture.
Who says I'm only arguing against threads for certain series? I've been reporting them all.
>I just think backseat janitors are hilariously sad people
Call it "backseat janitoring" if you want, but self-moderation is the only thing keeping this board from becoming an absolute shithole. It's the mods and janitors that respond to reports, you stupid moron. If they take action against your thread/posts, they obviously took offense to your actions. The users aren't responsible because you got punished for being an idiot; they're just the middleman.
>The fact that you're only arguing against threads from certain series or threads for certain board-related items means that you don't know what a general actually is, or what is part of /a/ culture.
Nobody ever argued against certain things, you idiot. Stop trying to be the arbiter of "board culture" when it's painfully obvious that you know nothing.
Funny that when generalfags find themselves challenged, they have no counter-argument besides strawmanning and invoking "board culture" that they can't even define.
And rulefagging is an infraction against a global rule, which makes it even more cancerous.
Then how comes there's threads for series that haven't had new content in years? You're losing your touch.
Nice counter-argument, buddy.
Whats next, a separate anime/generals board? Fuck off retard mods and take your new batch of retard jannies with you before they have a chance to fuck up the board even more than you already have.
DJT going was understandable since /int/ japanese thread linked to the same guide for learning the language, and they are a bunch of rude pricks. But buyfag and sadpanda belong on /a/.
I just checked, JoJo thread is still up. Nice work you fucking retards. Dont even try and claim that isnt a general either.
The japanese language is in many japanese cartoons and comics. Joke technicalities aside, DJT isn't the problem, that they're deleting any threads for series they don't like yet allowing other threads to continue when they both have the same posting styles in them is what the problem is.
Global six is too vague to impliment, otherwise rulefag posts would actually be deleted as they're supposed to be as well, especially since they also break GR 10 AND GR 12!
One of the reasons why they're so adamant on shitposting until they're allowed on /a/ is because a lot of the people in DJT don't want to get bullied for their flags.
Which wouldn't matter if they weren't all Brazilians and equally shitty people.
So you don't actually know what you're talking about?
Nah senpai /djt/ is filled with redditors and /vg/ idiots
Best to purge the cancer before it spreads
Anyway people can make threads about language learning whenever they want. I think lots of newfags don't know this but you don't need a 24/7 general for everything
148 filenames are about to come. Just letting you all know.
Reporting isn't rulefagging, shitposting in every thread you can find to let everyone know you're the super-important board hero by reporting 9 of the 10 pages or by cleansing the board of everything you don't like is. Though, abusing t he report function is also against a global rule, too.
I'm fine with DJT being moved, silly jokes aside.
What did you think I was referencing when I said that, you brainfucked faggot?
>In fact where do IRC boogeymen, old /a/ faggots and other people hang out on there?
Skype, Ventrilo, Discord, IRC and a whole lot of other places you'll never be invited into.
>shitposting in every thread you can find to let everyone know you're the super-important board hero by reporting 9 of the 10 pages or by cleansing the board of everything you don't like is.
Announcing reports is against the rules, so just report them instead of constantly complaining about it. Your bitching about rulefags is just as bad as anything else, and you keep bringing it up in every post you make.
So instead of one centralized resource, you want a bunch of smaller, repetitive threads that vary wildly in quality depending on who's on at the moment?
I can understand why people wouldn't want generals, but I think it's a lost cause. It will always be more efficient, from the perspective of providing resources and cataloging information, to have them. Banning them only imposes an artificial handicap on the use cases of the board.
Calling threads /something/ is fucking cancer. It's just an attempt to establish your independent nation-state inside a board because you want to separate yourself from the "other, lesser threads".
/jp/ doesn't want it, there is also a monstergirl problem there too. In fact /jp/ has long been treated as a dumping ground and accumulated quite a few japan related generals.
Mods are the ones deleting the threads, why are you acting as if the users are the ones condemning it? If the threads are being deleted right after being made, then it should be evident that their stance on DJT has changed.
Well, no, look at this, though:
>>150123641, , >>150123722, >>150123735, >>150123770
It seems that racebaiting is perfectly fine, as long as it achieves their goals. Of course, all of these people will be purged later on.
I have never been into the daily japanese thread once in all the time it's existed. What was so bad about it? Anons becoming tripfags, circlejerks, it becoming it's own internal micro-enviroment full of cancerous shit?
I think that getting rid of generals is a good thing because it stops us from becoming too secluded from each other. I don't understand getting rid of threads talking about how cute characters are and stuff, though. Don't know if it's happened yet, but the mod said those threads are on his list to stop. It's a pretty integral part of anime culture to have cute character or things.
Let's say that does happen, though. We should brain storm ideas of threads to have and things to talk about to we don't turn into /v/ and only have meta threads and meme threads.
Maybe if the Brazilian shitposter that kept remaking the threads didn't cry about his hurt feelings after getting ousted from his own circlejerk once flags were introduced, less people would shitpost about it.
I've been there a few times and it seemed to just be weebs trying to learn japanese and not doing well at it.
This sudden push for getting rid of /a/ shit reeks of shitposting.
Thankfully it will most likely die down in a week or so, as these things often do.
The mod is deleting only what he doesn't like, personalizing the board his taste and his taste alone. He then makes posts not talking about anime, but about what he wants the /qa/ transplants to do.
I would like to amend this post:
All of these people will be purged later on, _provided they're not janitors, coordinating in the janitor team channel_.
Yes, yes, "BRtime". Excellent IRC meme. You didn't really answer the question in a meaningful way.
The real problem here is that everything on /a/ has the potential to become a general. That means the solution is to delete EVERYTHING. And when people try to post new content, it gets deleted.
/a/ should just be a blank page, with nothing on it. That way, there are no more generals and everyone's happy.
You can't get rid of generals you idiots. As long as the catalog, 500 post bump limits, and even thread archiving persists it will continue to exist because that's how the site infrastructure changed.
Rather than having anything to do with anime or manga, it would occasionally just be a chatroom to blog in secretly and no one who was in the threads cared to report since it was their own little community. Oddly, they keep saying "wait till you need translations, then you'll regret this" but it's not like they actually translated all that much for the board anyway.
Last time I checked /v/ doesn't have much of a general problem, besides drawthreads there aren't anything that can be classified as a general. So as long as the mods are willing to enforce it eradicating generals is definitely possible.
/djt/ has reddit regulars
Don't believe it? Just search /djt/ on reddit
But the hues hues only know basic moon. This is most telling on /int/ where the BRs are still complaining in english on the DJT while there's barely any BRs posting in japanese in the japanese threads. Seriously, go check out both threads on /int/. The japanese thread is the one actually about japanese and this was the case even before DJT got kicked there.
What are you thankful for bros?
I'm thankful that BR trash has been kicked off of /a/ and that they will never have such a wonderful holiday like us.
Man, I'm getting really hungry but I'm too lazy to get up and make myself something to eat.
The mods have the right to do what they want. And the mods are the judge, jury and executioner. They decide if you break the rules, they'll ban you and then they'll reject your appeal.
I see all these mod posts, but not a single one talks about anime or manga. They just call for a /qa/ invasion and he gripes that he doesn't like things.
Since you're so familiar with Reddit, you should go back there. You can even make your own safe spa- i mean board, I hear!

Nigger I happened to go in a /djt/ thread once and some idiot posted a screenshot of a reddit comment of some guy saying he did the kanken or whatever the kanji examination is called. I replied saying there was no point taking the kanken since it was just a dick-measuring contest and he just kept replying back to me that nobody on /djt/ could do better anyway lmao
At that point I just gave up on /djt/ because nobody bothered to call the guy out on being a literal fucking reddit cunt
There's a janitor (not a mod) that only lurks in the Monster Monsume generals like how when there was always a janitor in the MM generals in /jp/. Why is this allowed?
/vg/ is full of normalshitter, so it's to be expected.
I just hope that when NotKinomod wakes up tomorrow he continues enforcing the law since there are still a bunch of disguised generals up.
It took you that long to write this out? Not only are you an idiot, but you're slow too.
>make thread to discuss a show with some thoughts on it
>3 replies before dying, two of them were just personal insults

That's because they're all on /vg/. Are you seriously defending the quality of /v/?
Please, don't try to change the subject to posting aesthetics. The term "Redditspacing" (as one word) did, in fact, gain traction on 8ch/8pol. You were so eager to be rid of that one group of posters, and yet now you're using their terminology?
Oh, so it's actually an /r9k/ term? Don't you hate them, too? You'll shit on anyone and defend anyone, so long as it gets people to agree with you.
Of course, no one will get on this guy's case for his unnecessary line breaks, because he agrees with what the mods are doing, so there's no reason to gangbang him. IRC should just go establish their own spinoff website. Oh wait, they have, but they're all dead, so they have to come here. They want us to generate new "content" for them, for free, and then punish us when they don't like it.
Yes, in-jokes are fine and "board culture", unless we don't like them, in which case they're terrible and a plague on the board.
I want to fucking punch people. Honestly.
>it's a meme that originated on....
What kind of tool gets enjoyment out of repeating crap - hell, that they didn't even come up with. What kind of tool uses the word "meme" seriously?
Because there is some oversight. Not much, but some.
But if you get banned, it's not like you have some method of actually getting a fair assessment from the admins on it. You submit an appeal, which gets reviewed by the same people that banned you in the first place.
If they were, /a/ would only ever have 5 threads up.
It's just a cute way to start a thread, which is better than every OP being a robotic "Let's discuss XXXXX episode YY today."
looking through the catalog
>multiple meguca "disucssion" threads
>"one page thread"
>seasonal anime threads
>stupid discussion threads (characters who've had sex, etc)
>veiled rec threads (OPT, worst shows, etc)
Basically mods are getting rid of shows they don't like and leaving shows they do.
Shockingly, mods have shit taste.
>DJT is a single, long-running thread with a mostly established userbase. There aren't enough posters to self-moderate efficiently, particularly when there are people who incessantly ban evade and flood the thread with reposts to the point where you need to copypaste every single post into Google and the archive to make sure they're real. Regular posters don't have the power to deal with that.
Funny how that works, hue hue hue
What I don't understand is what people are trying to accomplish by banning generals.
Basically what would happen is that we would see people make various threads of popular shows after they stop airing, basically shitting up the board instead of secluding themselves to a single thread.
Sure they all sometimes get circlejerky, but overtime they will die, just like many generals for old popular shows have already died down.
Also the discussion fags are fucking retarded, you have to understand that if you weren't here when the show was airing, you most likely won't get a single reply, because most of us have already seen that show and discussed it to death, that is why most threads of old shows just end up talking about stupid shit about the show, like best girl thread or whatever template you hate the most.
What annoys me the most is that people are so fucking retarded that they try to stop shit they don't even know how or why happens. Just banning shit never solves anything, you have to attack the root of the problem, and like it or not, to ban generals you would have to literally ban any kind of thread about a show, or let it be a shitfest full of normalfags shows without a clear purpose.
I never said anything about a user getting banned, I said that mods are supposed to enforce the admin's rules, not make their own. The current mod is making their own rules, which is literally the opposite of doing their job.
>Basically what would happen is that we would see people make various threads of popular shows after they stop airing, basically shitting up the board instead of secluding themselves to a single thread.
Except that they couldn't keep the threads up for any significant period of time. They'd get bored and stop.
Now they just keep bumping one thread as long as they can and will just fellate each other while at it.
>I said that mods are supposed to enforce the admin's rules, not make their own
The admins made the rules lax on purpose so the mods can do whatever they want. See: global six.
Constant off topic meme garbage like that was a major part of why DJT was removed from /a/ and into /int/, where most of the posters came from anyway.
Their guide was written by a redditor who doesn't watch anime and posted recently in a thread, with a secure trip, blogging about pointless shit.
It wasn't really part of /a/ for the last three odd years of its life.
That's the problem with the concept of "generals" though. There is no clear line between discussing an old show or franchise and having a "general" thread.
That's just fucked up. Even when moot was fixin to purge /a/ of "generals" he still appreciated buyfag and DJT as positively contributing.
>instead of secluding themselves to a single thread
This was never a problem until the general mentality took over, so much so that people are trying to rewrite history and say that /a/ always worked this way. /a/ never had an unspoken rule about containing a show in a single thread.
Actually, in-jokes are fine, as long as they're happening on IRC, among people I personally like. You board outsider scum, on the other hand, don't deserve to have your own culture, and you get the faceless, homogenized "content-churn" treatment.
The first result is an /r9k/ post. I had to check twice to make sure that I wasn't misreading it, but yes, the first person complaining about "Reddit spacing" in that archive is complaining about it on /r9k/. Also, he's talking in fake ebonics. What a great pedigree your catchphrase has!
The actual solution is to just remove the bump limit, paginate them, and leave people to their 1000-post forum threads. That's how you'd do it, if you actually cared about doing it.
Nice /b/ meme. It's okay when you do it.
Cancer is much more curable than the AIDS you're trying to spread, faggot.
>I want /a/ to have no threads

The archive doesn't have every single post from the past, there's giant chunks missing, I only searched reddit spacing to prove you wrong. But sure, keep moving the goalposts, friend.
I want /a/ to have threads, and it will, just not yours. Also, contrary to your apparent belief, a board does not need threads being constantly created to be good or lively.
>62 unique posters
Why is this thread still up?
> That's the problem with the concept of "generals" though. There is no clear line between discussing an old show or franchise and having a "general" thread.
Having threads for old shows is fine; artificially keeping threads alive with meaningless bumps and infinite chains of new threads is cancer regardless of how old or new the show is.
The real *original* problem with generals were things like idolmaster, which were literal 24/7 stealth-marketing.
Then autist mods ran with their generalitis to its "logical" conclusion, hence the faggotry we now witness.
>You just claim that any thread for a popular series that's discussed often on /a/ is a general.
>implying they're not
Technically, unless there is news or a new manga chapter or something truly worthy of discussion, yes, it's a general.
Guess I should take a break from /a/ until things straighten up.
op here thanks for the (you)s
Here's how this always goes.
1. Mods develop a grudge against something for their own inscrutable and stupid reasons.
2. They ban everyone who has anything to do with it.
3. People are, understandably, upset over being randomly banned.
4. This being 4chan, a portion of them inevitably act up or become enraged, and either shitpost* or angrily defend whatever the thing was.
5. Mods use this to portray the entire thing as the purview of idiots and losers, and rally the rest of the userbase, who want to be cool on an anonymous imageboard, against them.
6. Wash, rinse, repeat. You'll never get any smarter, and you'll continue to be manipulated.
The problem with making multiple threads isn't them being there, is that every time a new thread is created, an old one will go, so you will get a constant influx of people making new threads about a show, because if one even gets some kind of traction it will be deemed a general.
That was never a problem, because anime wasn't as popular back then, because it was much harder to find subs for anime, now we have shit like crunchyroll giving normalfags easy access to anime, which gives more traffic to /a/.
>There is no clear line between discussing an old show or franchise and having a "general" thread.
There is a mile thick line when that thread happens to have thread numbers in the hundreds, if not thousands, is remade the moment the old one dies, keeping it alive 24/7 and the OP is a specific template used every single time.
You literally said you want /a/ to be a nearly empty board. If that's not killing it, then someone changed the dictionary when I wasn't looking.
No, it'll have threads just like "mine", but for Eva and 2006 KyoAni shows instead of currently running series that actually have a chance of generating new discussion.
Only thing that actually get enough new content steadily coming should bother having a near necroposting general. JoJo for instance, one monthly chapter isn't enough. Attack on Titan, same shit
>thread lasts till fucking Wednesday
*Shitposting was originally an SA catchphrase that Alternative and other mods overused to the point that it became a meme, and if you read the chatlog leaks, you can see him bitching about how it's a terrible meme and one of the worst things 4chan's ever done. That's funny to me.
You can literally see my IP. You know that I'm posting from the US.
What "stealth replies"? You're not making sense. This pattern has occurred several times in the past.
You have access to my posting history. I'm not even one of them, and you know that. Why lie?
>people who don't use the board
You mean like those generalfags who spend 95% of their time on 4chan locked away in their general, only to start throwing a fucking tantrum and spamming the board when mods tell them to fuck off?
>Having threads for old shows is fine;
"I want to lick homura's feet" isn't different from any other "general". Personally I don't care if people make those threads, but pretending it's quality discussion and not just a thread for the sake of having a thread is just stupid.
Maybe the original use of the term "general", but not what it's evolved into under the gentle tutelage of the various autists around here.
>"I want to lick homura's feet" isn't different from any other "general". Personally I don't care if people make those threads, but pretending it's quality discussion and not just a thread for the sake of having a thread is just stupid.
This, we don't need to have Rei vs Asuka for the zillionth time, or another Bebop thread.

>/a/ tells me Kinomod is based

Completely selectively, therefore making a rule that "Anything I don't like is deleted regardless of any rule breaking, and anything I personally like can break other rules."
I bet you think police are completely in the right when they shoot black people in the head for going 3 miles over the speed limit.
No, the website belongs to the mods (it actually belongs to the yakuza who threatened to break Hiroyuki's legs, but never mind), and all the effort you've put into posting over the years doesn't matter or give you any equity unless you also spent time ingratiating yourself with the IRC cliques. Tough luck... kid.
Global six is a joke.
He is based. "Based" means "to behave as if you're on crack".
>herefore making a rule that "Anything I don't like is deleted regardless of any rule breaking, and anything I personally like can break other rules."
Yes, that is literally global six. Are you too dumb to understand the rules?
>I bet you think police are completely in the right when they shoot black people in the head for going 3 miles over the speed limit.
The mods have one ruleset and the police have another. Why are you bringing this in?
>The problem with making multiple threads isn't them being there, is that every time a new thread is created, an old one will go, so you will get a constant influx of people making new threads about a show, because if one even gets some kind of traction it will be deemed a general.
So what, if a thread dies then it dies. Threads on 4chan were meant to be transient experiences. Threads were meant to compete with each other for page 0 and die off if they couldn't. There was a fundamental difference in mentality in imageboard posting vs forum posting, which is part of the reason why moot never implemented an official archive. General-style posting is a carryover from forums that tries to force aspects of forum posting onto a platform that wasn't designed for it, such as an undying thread and sub communities that exist away from the whole.
>Well, the rest of the board should stop being nerd bullshit then
The rest of the board should create double standards to make a special safe space for outsiders?
Ground breaking concept.
>Yes, that is literally global six. Are you too dumb to understand the rules?
"The quality of posts is extremely important to this community. Contributors are encouraged to provide high-quality images and informative comments."
I don't see anything in there that says "Series the mod doesn't like are not to be posted."
>The mods have one ruleset and the police have another. Why are you bringing this in?
Because it's an applicable analogy, both are using false pretense to use power they don't have on people who don't deserve it.
>I don't see anything in there that says "Series the mod doesn't like are not to be posted."
I don't see your proofs that mods are deleting things based on personal like and not just moderating based on global six.
You're just going to have to figure it out on your own, son.
Not really, the pastebin's more symptomatic than anything. If you want the problem gone, you need to attack it at it's root.
You know that's not what that mean you retard. I'd say to go back to your shitty general but they're all dying off.
>jojo generals will die in your lifetime
>monster musume generals will die in your lifetime
>all kinds of /v/ermin circlejerk generals will die in your lifetime
This board still has a future.
And Hiro is still majority owner. He's the boss, and while those mods can make suggestions, their say still doesn't mean shit in comparison to Hiro's. And, by having said nothing, his word is the rules page, which says nothing about the mod being allowed to prune threads based on personal taste rather than actual post quality.
>Threads on 4chan were meant to be transient experiences.
According to fucking whom? 2channel? Futaba? Who "meant" for things to be this way?
>Threads were meant to compete with each other for page 0 and die off if they couldn't.
That sounds like upvoting to me.
MVB writes like a Tumblrfag/ERPer, Alt is a boring hipster with a K habit, and RapeApe is some kind of weirdo who got headmin way too fast.
It would be perfectly fine if it wasn't multiple threads taking up space.
Also you are forgetting that it's natural for a big and popular threads to become generals, even if they are not in name, especially if the show stops getting more material.
So where do we draw the line between a thread for a popular show and a general?.
Personally I think that the way to get rid of the "cancerous" part of generals is just being more strict with blog posting.
I'm quoting >>150124949 , who said that when threads die another one should never be made again, or else it's a general.
>You know that's not what that mean you retard.
Then what does it mean? When you say that a thread shouldn't be remade when it dies, then how would another thread ever be made once the first one dies? Or do you mean immediately after the first one dies, and threads made later aren't generals even though they're also full of the same repetitive and stagnant posting, just with a different timestamp? That's not a difference in post quality either, so no rule sixing.
"Based" is a retarded /v/-/b/-/pol/ catchphrase based on a terrible rapper's forced memes that he forced by attention-whoring on 4chan. Anyone who calls anything "based" should be disregarded.
Nothing wrong with being a nazi, nigger
I'm just waiting for the dust to settle. If there's no word from mods and things stay as they are with some generals being banned while others aren't then I'm going to fire up the shitposting guns and REMOVE GENERAL.
Come now anon, edgy kids in their step-parent's basement aren't really psychos.
I mean, you don't think some faggot like >>150125161 is going to grow out of it a few years after they kick him out and force him to get a job?
>then I'm going to fire up the shitposting guns
Are you using the shitposting knives right now? Because if you are, you're pretty skilled to get that much shitposting out of them.
>So where do we draw the line between a thread for a popular show and a general?.
If the mod likes it, it's a thread. If t he mod doesn't like it, it's a general. That's why we can have 500 posts of Rei vs Asuka every other hour but a thread about a new manga chapter for an ongoing series is verboten.
>I am quoting what he actually said, just not the words he used to say them.
This is what an anti-DJT person posts like.
>threatening to lay siege to the board with shitposting
All of these things would ordinarily get the poster in question labeled "cancer", but since he's doing it in favor of things the mods want, he's just fine.
You're acting like the term has not been very commonly used on /a/ since its inception.
I'm asking you to calm down, since you're obviously offended by my post on a personal level, looking for perceived flaws to discredit it.
Are you from the jojo general?
>JoJo still alive
>Reddit:Zero still alive
>the only thing /a/ was shot itself in the foot by killing /DJT/ which removes future potential translators
>literally no one benefits from this onslaught
>I'm just waiting for the dust to settle. If there's no word from mods and things stay as they are with some generals being banned while others aren't then I'm going to fire up the shitposting guns and REMOVE GENERAL.
Again, where is the racism and trumpposting in this?
No, but it's how reading works. Otherwise poetry and song wouldn't be anything. If it troubles your autism less, I'll use the traditional meme arrows instead of the double apostrophes.
Sorry, I don't speak gook.
