things I learned in 2016 /a/
1. Recommendation threads are allowed now
2. Doesn't have self moderation because of the /jp split, making it easier to spam
3. The userbase can't help but reply to obvious bait
4. Should have the reply cooldown minimized
5. Generals are expected to be created for dumped comics
6. Nostalgia-fags are now everywhere
>>
>1. Recommendation threads are allowed now
No they aren't, report them and they are rapidly deleted
>4. Should have the reply cooldown minimized
That would just encourage shitposting and image dumps

What? Its been like that since years ago.

Eva threads everywhere.
>>
generalfags won

I started browsing /a/ recently again after a long break and since returning I've noticed that threads which would have been shouted down as a thinly veiled rec thread gets responses and there's more spoonfeeding now. Obviously I missed something judging by this thread.

On bait, even sometimes people dismiss long and well thought out criticisms of their favorite anime as bait. It really sucks because discussion is being stifled in favor of circlejerks.

Although there are some pretty clear bait posts, you know, the ones involving "bad writing" without a single sentence elaborating on it.
>>
Kyoani will never make another good het show
>>
>>151644120
Agreed, it's a place to discuss anime, people should be expected to already have some knowledge and conform to the board, not the other way around. The content and threads seems to not have changed at least and there's as many shit theads as ever. I see people moaning about generals again but it won't get them anywhere.
>>
>>151645301
Even if it's a well thought out criticism, you have to admit the moment that a buzzword is used it's just inviting a beito response, not that I'm saying it's okay. The best threads for discussion are the ones tangentially related to the subject matter funnily enough because it invites less retards.
>>
>>151644120
>I wish making a rec thread was a year's ban and spoonfeeding in one at least half a year.
Long bans are totally useless these days given how easy ban evasion is.
>>
>>151645721
Yeah, but there's a good chance newfags will at least learn a little if they get instantly banned.
>>
>>151645773
Nah they'll just go whine on /qa/ about it.
>>
>>151635561
That trapfags are annoying.
>>
>>151645807
And then they should be given another ban for ban evasion.
>>
>>151644120
Honestly I just wish posting "that" copypasta and related replies would result in an instant ban. Even when they get deleted they just keep coming back. I'm honestly believing that it is mostly posted by the same group of people, some of whom may have proxies in case they're banned for spamming "that".

- Rem is best girl

God forbid we have image dumps on an image board.

Shit killed storytime threads.

I don't want to say its name because if I mention it, someone might actually decide to post it here. Let's just say the copypasta I'm referring to is somehow related to the highest grossing Japanese film of all time.

Come on, this should have been obvious since you followed current anime seasons instead of getting anime through a non-jap TV anime block.

It's like any other medium, mostly trash with some great shit waiting to be found.

1. Naurto is actually allowed and has common threads with no copypasta bombing anymore
2. Board is getting slower with more people leaving
3. Most people are very new based on people freaking out over (You)s if they aren't using 4chan X or know how to restore them in the native extension
4. Recommendation threads are encouraged and anyone who calls them out is called an "elitist"

Original shows will have great threads for the first three to four weeks, whereupon shitposters will rain from the skies and lower the overall quality of discussion. Some threads can recover from this, others will be fucked forever. This can be avoided if the show in itself finds the perfect balance between alright and kinda shitty so it falls under the radar.
