Fag mod thinks that they are removing cancer from /a/ by getting rid of generals without realizing all generals are not created equal.

CG threads were fucking dogshit, worst part of the board back in 06.

What the fuck is helpful about these dogshit threads? You can occasionally find a deal for 5 dollars off a 200 dollar hunk of plastic that will take up some space?

The entertainment of watching people waste money?

These threads are corpulent and diseased, and they should have been the first to go in the purge. Fuck off back to /toy/.
>>
>>150295167
Oh, so you're one of those retards who also believes that just because new mod posted a pic of kino, it also proves he's kindomod, right?

You're not very smart if it's so easy to fool you. You literally don't have any proof other than "b-but IRC name!" which can be used literally by anyone once it expires.
>>
>>150295216
You really remember very little of the 06-07 days.

Threads were full of a variety of anime getting spammed, it wasn't even just Code Gayass. Even then CG had plenty of spam at key moments throughout its entire run, as did Death Note, TTGL, etc. Hell even Ergo Proxy and Yugioh GX had dedicated threads up constantly, which would be construed as generals.

The very concept of the thread is a joke. I've bought a few figures, I look at them once and then they sit on a shelf forever.

If we were talking about something like full on custom model building, I could see it having a place on /a/. But nobody here has any skill, they'd rather just blow a few hundred dollars on another anime booty for the collection of trash.

Gunpla isn't really full on, but it's totally suited to /m/ and I have absolutely zero issue with it. People can spend 20 bucks and a lot of time and end up with something meaningful to them.

If these threads were about custom builds and showing them off, I don't think I'd have a problem with them. As they're just blatant capitalism ho circlejerks, I think anyone who uses them seriously should be permabanned from life.

Not true at all. There is plenty of customization that can be done to Gunpla, ranging from simple and custom paint jobs, to battle damaging using a searing too, or even amalgamations of many different parts. Even then Gunpla can range anywhere from $15 to $300 depending on the grade of the build and the amount of materials needed to procure what is needed.

While yes more works goes into said things compared to say the typical figma (even for those that personally customize certain aspects of a figma themselves), both can be rather proud of their purchases and it mean something meaningful to them, so there is no difference in relations there.

Even then most of the Gunpla threads on /m/ are typically "Hey guys I bought this and put it together, what do you think?" and that is the end of that, there are a few people, as there are in these very threads that look for critiques into something they may have bought regarding said specific show or design that they may particular like or criticisms towards specific figmas themselves in terms of build and how they have been assembled to be distributed.

Your own narrow minded view of both is insulting to not only figmas and Gunpla to buying something meaningful to a person regardless of what it is, even if its a simple Stormtrooper toy for /toy/ or something as simple as buying a single manga volume of a particular Saga/Arc of something you either recently enjoyed or did so in the past, and you want to bring this to the attention of everyone who may have or may not have seen said thing, and to expand and enrich the culture all around not just in Anime and Manga but a variety of things across the board.

it's funny how banning generals made the threads into the cancer they were apparently banned for.

no one really batted an eye until it became against the rules, now it's some big deal with loads of shitposting. I think the takeaway here is to not try and fix something that isn't broken.

I was skeptical at first mod, I figured you'd just ban a couple of threads and then give up.

The fact you've finally moved onto these awful threads is a real step up. I hope this progresses to eventually removing these shitty threads, they're only filled with metaposting after the ban, and changing the name shouldn't be a free pass to continue if the content is exactly the same.

What about the 5 Code Geass threads at the moment? 99% of it is shitposting and circlejerking. Your never going to be able to stop or get rid of it and the mods have only made these threads worse

This isn't an actual buyfag thread, it's a "metaposting about the deletion of the buyfag thread" thread.

Buyfag threads are banned.

It sure is a nice concept, but it doesn't change the fact that as it currently stands, it's not allowed right now. Making /a/ buyfag threads there is pointless unless what you're considering actually happens.
>>
>>150294941
Mods are retarded. I got banned yesterday for telling anon to kill themselves for posting a shitty doujin page, but a meta disucssion involving a tripfag filled with shitposting about said tripfag was kept intact - in the same thread. It's like the some of the mods never browsed /a/.

That being said, as much as I like the buyfag thread and get information from it, I could do without it (or at least I wouldn't mind not having it at up 24/7).
Problem is, we can't move it anywhere. Statues are banned on /toy/, and individual thread just won't do.
>>
>>150296472
It'll be allowed. IRC has already gotten their hand on the Drawfag thread drama going around too and are spamming threads.

Deleting threads just stirs the flames higher and higher, mods cause the problems of the board more than they think because people find easy shitposting material out of the drama.

I have always gotten things quicker with EMS. Hence the price.

You might want to make sure that you won't get hit by customs for using one method over another.

After masturbating I realized what I had done and contacted the reseller and asked them to stop the order. They had already packed it. They were nice and still canceled the order for me though, but due to currency value going up and down daily I lost like 15 dollars on it.

He got called into a courtroom to testify against a poster.

After that, he was pretty much fucking done with the site.

Shortly after, he got to give a Ted Talk. Even though it was pretty banal, he got a taste of what life was like when you WEREN'T surrounded by mouthbreathing faggots 24/7.

So he tried to inject some of that experience into 4chan. After that was a bust, he stopped giving a shit and went looking for a way out. After the fappening, gamergate, etc, he said fuck it and started applying anywhere, and Google called him up and he's never looked back.

You guys actually have it a little better off.

US Minimum Wage: 7.25-10 USD (depending on where you live, typically 7.25 in most places)
CA Minimum Wage: 10.50-15 CAD (depending on where you live)

Basically at our lowest each.

7.25 USD=9.78 CAD
7.78 USD=10.50 CAD

At our highest each.

10 USD=13.49 CAD
11.12 USD=15 CAD

You guys get paid slightly more than us, its not by much, but you do, and likely for a lesser cost of living.

For instance to afford a 2 bedroom apartment, Kentucky has the cheapest apartments in the US, you need a mininum wage of $13 at least to afford one. With San Francisco's being the highest at around $45/hr. Our prices have tripled and even worse so in some places while the minimum wage has stayed the same, if our min. wage had gone up with the economy, we'd be getting around 22 USD=29.67 CAD/hr.
>>
>>150297681
Nuh-huh gay boy. You posted "facts". Back them up.
>>
>>150297739
A higher minimum wage is worse for literally everyone, learn economics.
>>
>>150297772
I'm not saying it isn't. Just look at Seattle, because of the increase in minimum wage its actually not changed anything in terms of jobs being offered and has actually gotten slightly worse due to not being able to pay everyone that much.

Your prices however are cheaper than ours in some Provinces, which helps with an increased wage (even if its slightly).

Both of our economies are honestly in very poor places. Australia's too. Hell most of the world's economy is in the shitter.

Not really. The unused assets of the top 1% could pay all the burger flippers easy. It's like that in plenty of countries, like your weeb paradise Japan.

In Japan the top CEOs don't even make half what they do in America, and no one whines that there's going to be some sort of Brain drain where these brilliant CEOs leave the country if they don't get paid 350 million a year.

It's a general because a shitposter said so once in the past.
>>
>>150298379
No one teaches that type of logic in American schools. It's the absence of being taught economics that leads people to come to those conclusions based on what they think is "common sense."

Hence why most of the people who actually go to college to study economics are quite liberal. When those students start making millions they care more about their own money than other people's welfare so many switch to becoming republicans. It's just a matter of greed and human nature. Even when people have 1 billion dollars they are still greedy for more money.

I live in Canada and shit is compleatly random if it gets hit by fees or not. Every package goes through customs and its up to the person looking at it to decide if its worth their time or not. I've personally never had a package under $100 CAD get hit, but shit like Remila that was $240 after shipping go through without getting dinged as well.

They were starting to automate cashier jobs before the talk of minimum wage increases ever started though. Stores who put those self checkout lines are starting to remove them too now that they discovered you can't trust the masses to do anything for themselves and the rate of theft has gone through the roof thanks to them too. All it takes is 2 people an hour to say "fuck it I'm not buying food here because this retard in front of me in taking forever to self order" to make it worth paying a real person to take orders. In the end these big companies will bitch and moan about having to pay their employees more, try to automate them, fail and just raise the price of their burgers 10 cents to cover it paying someone to do the job.

It doesn't use edition, doesn't reference previous threads and doesn't really have any stagnation due to nothing happening because something is almost always happening in buyfag.
Those attributes have always been core to how to identify what is a general and what isn't.
See 3.0 release and there was up to something like
>Eva General #700
Regardless of the film already having been discussed to hell and back.
Generals promote maintaining a thread when there's nothing new to discuss which isn't allowed on /a/.
See [email protected] generals being moved when there was literally no [email protected] anime airing and the threads were stagnant and the only discussion about the video game or waifuposting.
[email protected] was able to clearly fit into the rules of /vg/, unlike people saying buyfag should go to /toy/ which already has very clear rules about anime merchandise.
People call it circlejerking when they don't understand what a circlejerk is, relative to threads.
Not to mention if you apply this same logic that is being used against buyfag, to the rest of /a/, there would be almost nothing left.
How often do you not see a waifu/husbando thread up?
An imouto thread?
A nee-san thread?
This is your x tonight thread?
A re:zero thread?
Sadpanda threads?
What did x mean by this threads?
What emotion is this trying to convey threads?
The list goes fucking on.

To followup on this a precedent (not that we need anymore precedents for buyfag to be on /a/ after several throughout the years) is already set within rule 4 which allows the direct discussion of live action and western films, so long as they are rooted in or based off of anime/manga.
How is it people think it is better to discuss Hollywood adaptations of anime, as opposed to figures made and sold in Japan, based off of anime?

No, but you can discuss film and television related anime on /a/.
Surely you wouldn't suggest that anime figures from Japan are less related to anime than say, a western adaptation of GiTS?
>>150300054
It doesn't make sense within the current ruleset at all.
It doesn't follow rules set out on /a/, nor does it follow the rules for generals beyond there being a thread up all the time, which is one out of several identifiers of general threads.
>>
Hey Buyfag, DJT here. We got each other's back, right?
>>
>>150300125
A case can easily be made against DJT and I don't see what rebuttal you have.
Learning Japanese isn't directly related to anime & manga.
I've never personally understood why it remains on /a/
DJT really is the least suited out of DJT/buyfag/drawthreads to be on /a/
>>
>>150300096
READ THE FUCKING G- oh.
>>
>>150300223
Buyfag threads are far less suited to /a/. A case can be made for the drawfag threads, given they provide a service for faggots, and DJT, because it creates the potential of more translators for rest of the board, but buyfagging is nothing but "look how much money I wasted, aren't I cool?" style posting, and provides nobody in any other thread with even a tangential benefit.
>>
>>150300331
People enjoy discussing the stuff they buy that directly supports the anime you pirate.
>>
Are sad panda threads banned yet?

Also, why can't they bring the textboards back and move them there? Why can't all of these threads just go to /jp/? DJT would be fine (not really) in /jp/, unless you're willing to make the assertion that language isn't culture, but instead it gets pushed to... /int/, which no one likes, which already has a Japanese language thread, and which doesn't share any of /a/'s culture at all.

It was forced into a ghetto. The point isn't just to make /a/ "on-topic", whatever that means, but to humiliate people for posting threads they don't like. They made sure to go for the solution that made the posters feel like unwanted garbage.
>>
>>150300375
You mean people enjoy blogging about their lives. The support buyfag threads provide to anime is almost non-existent, I'd actually go as far as to say that DJT has more impact with people buying raws to read. The parts the buyfag threads support are what's brought us to the current stalemate of a dozen shitty LN adaptations a season.

>DJT, because it creates the potential of more translators for rest of the board
DJT as a whole is indirectly related to the board, potential for translators doesn't make the entire thread directly related to it.
That's like me saying buyfag should stay because we put money into the anime merchandise economy which helps to keep it spinning.
It's bullshit in both instances.
A thread for learning the Japanese language as a whole is not directly related to anime and manga. It is indirectly related.
Buyfag is the discussion of merchandise directly related to and based off of anime and manga.
It is equal or closer than the discussion of western, live action adaptations of anime.

Learning the language used in every single anime and manga is not directly related?
>>
>>150300442
Do subtitles not exist?
Excellent way to dodge the point by the way.
And yes sorry to tell you but anime and manga are not so intertwined with the Japanese language as a whole that they are inseparable you fucking imbecile.
The thread isn't learning anime it's learning Japanese.

Here's where you went full retard.

Were the buyfag threads limited to only discussing BR and manga sales, I supposed I could agree with some of your points. Because they aren't, and they're in reality just a place to post all the figs you want to buy/have bought, your points ring totally hollow.

Both threads might have a tangential impact, but the one DJT provides is far more obvious to the board.

If you think talking about plastic butts is anime related, then why don't people have threads on /tv/, or /v/, or any other board about toys, other than /toy/? Your complaints should be with the moderation of that board, for not letting you post your shitty figures where they so obviously belong.

Pretty much this. DJT, Buyfag and Drawthreads have all become "personae non gratae" on this site. I don't know who decided it or why, but the moment DJT was moved to /int/ the crusade started.
I doubt most people on /a/ even cared about these threads, before the current shitstorm started they mostly complained about generals about anime series, and since these threads are generals too and a mod decided to purge them, they suddenly started hating them too, for no real reason.

By the way, it's true that DJT was never /a/ related, but in my opinion it was a good and productive thread we had here, and most of its posters were /a/non who were learning the language for /a/ related content. Revoking the special permission it had was a stupid move in my opinion.

Why is that?

The threads are discussion of anime merchandise.

I think talking about anime related merchandise is anime related.

I believe /v/ does have its own video game related buyfag, just as /a/ has its anime related buyfag, just as dolls are on /jp/ and western toys and everything else is on /toy/
>Your complaints should be with the moderation of that board, for not letting you post your shitty figures where they so obviously belong

Rules bent?
There are several precedents and judgements by mods in the past which is why the anime buyfag thread has been on /a/ all this time.
There's a fucking rule in place right now that allows discussion of LIVE ACTION series' on /a/.
The fact that people are more angry about anime merchandise threads over live action threads is stupid enough in its own right.
I liked DJT and used it while in earlier phases of studying Japanese, but I won't argue for it to be on /a/ using the same reasons that I believe buyfag should be on /a/ for, because DJT has always been more of an exception / special case rather than it actually belonging.
It makes sense for the fucking anime related merchandise thread to be on the anime board.

Dear buyfags,
In an effort to improve the quality of posts on /a/, it's come to our attention that issues in buyfag threads should be addressed. To that end, here are a few suggestions:

1. Please focus on producing original discussion, questions, or content when creating or contributing to a thread; avoid >template formats and “X Thread”-type posts. OPs should be insightful and specific, not >general.
2. Please avoid reposting content from previous threads. This includes: resource pastebins, copypasta, forcing memes, image dumping, “xth for y”, “reminder x” and anything that fails to abide by #1.
3. Feel free to talk about similar content in separate threads.
4. Allow a thread to expire naturally.
5. Please avoid recurring thread topics that are not accompanied by content to discuss
6. Continue to abide by the global and /a/-specific rules outlined here: 4chan.org/rules


These suggestions are applicable to other threads on /a/.
If we keep to these guidelines, we can all enjoy /a/ together. Please report any rule breaking content too. Thanks again!

Even in your meta discussion, nothing can come to a consensus. Perhaps you should discuss all this non anime / manga related stuff over on >>>/qa/

Of course there's /a/ shit on every board retard, the site was practically founded on it. That doesn't mean /v/ or anywhere else can shitpost on /a/. Fuck off back to wherever you came from.
>>
>>150302764
Nobody cares about your secret board and posts on /qa/ have never changed anything. Please, continue to relentlessly antagonize the userbase, then complain in IRC about how hard your job is.

It's true though, everyone on /a/ thinks their special snowflakes when it comes to "do the rules apply to me too?"

They apply to everyone, this thread included, which is clearly not discussing the main board's topic. Does not belong here.

>>150302853
That's not true at all, fucking /qa/ made it ok for newfags to talk about naruto on /a/ again.
>>
>>150302892
No, the mods made it okay for newfags to talk about Naruto on /a/, and they did it for their own reasons, most likely something to do with falling user count and not having anywhere else to put Naruto. /qa/ has never mattered and it will never matter.

And /toy/ doesn't want us there because figures are statues and not joint posable dolls. They barely allow Figmas.

I think it pretty much looks like her, but then again I too just know her from them doujins.

Shiburin is cute still.

We had 2 or 3 regular buyfag threads before this one by just ignoring the retarded mod and making the threads as normal.

What was the reason for making the OP this stupid shit?
>>
Cmon guys, if they don't want all the posts from this thread to be in a single general we'll just have to put each of them into a separate new thread. I mean, if the "majority" feels it will improve /a/ I believe we should comply. I'm already preparing to dump my pork folder while asking stupid questions like "where can I buy this", "how much will shipping cost" or "can I pay COD"?

If generals on /a/ were really a problem moot would have just made /ag/ - Anime Generals, but Hiroshima blew all of 4chan's cash on sake and 3DPD dakis so he's gonna cut boards rather than add new.

Has anyone bought from E2046 before? Specifically their Gathering line. It seems to be the only place to get painted GKs at a reasonable price.

I know it'd be a bootleg but I'd probably be fine with it as long as quality isn't the Belfine-Aqua tier of resin kits.

>>150306907
why is µ's so good...

>>150306907
It's far from perfect, actually you can expect something similar to koto stuff. Faces on small scales are a weak point though, and expect Bellfine like quality in those.
