I don't think /a/ has been ruined yet actually. Every year this board gets a little younger, a little hornier, a little more gullible, but the self-moderation has kept this place from going completely to shit. If you think it's bad now, this is not even close to the worst /a/ could get.

/a/ is still kinda okay, if you ignore the majority of the constant generals, reposts, and crossboarder meme bait. Some people hate 2009, but I think it was the best year on /a/. Things didn't really start going downhill until after 2013, even as late as this time last year things were better and felt less newfaggy.

>>159555135
Generals ruined /a/. No longer are there multiple threads when something exciting happens. It's hard to gauge what's popular and what's not if every day there is damn general of a show up.

We used to as a board talk about mangas as they were scanlated and there would be threads for each part and then the board would switch to whatever was subbed.

I miss that dynamic shifting but there is no way we would ever recapture that naturally.

Since there are some artist I really like who only post their work on blog and tumblr (fucking why, there are so many other normal sites), I have to visit that shithole from time to time.

People had actual fun. They were less scared of being criticized, we were taking it easier, and there wasn't the same constant cynics there is now. People are afraid of reddit, of /v/, of /pol/ now, which are real problems admittedly. /a/ did the right thing in growing up, but we lost something.

Euros 2012.
People actually forget or ignore that 2012-2013 was the real dark age of tight moderation, most tripfags stopped after people from other boards constantly despised them, cp was a real problem, the outlelz constantly shitting up the place in response to the moderation, the board got popular but we didn't get enough "creators" to supply all the new content users, game threads became too fast and the spiky nature of /sp/ number of posts was exaggerated.

WC 2014 things were already stabilzed, and I dare to say that from 2015 or so things are improving compared to the previous years.

Self-moderation is a nice concept and everything, but there are too many fags going on crusades against what they don't like for the sake of "protecting the board", making meta shitposts a million times worse than whatever they complain about.

If anything it brought the board together. It's weird as fuck to think I used to sit in all of those blogtv/tinychat group chat things with him in it.

It was /u/ and I was posting in the Blue Drop thread. Back then /u/ was as militant as it is today, but since there were few yuri materials they were mostly confined in their own board.

>tfw no one even remember Blue Drop today
>>
>>159557491
It's also because, to put it bluntly, /v/ is an extremely gullible and childish board. No other board, except maybe /tv/, seem to have been as colonized by /pol/ as /v/ was.
It helps that we have proper moderation, proper self-moderation, and enough people knowing about the medium to tell /pol/ to fuck off. /v/, on the other hand, lost so many old users to /vr/, and all is left are young users. I bet there is a huge difference in the % of american users here and there, and that plays a part too.

And yeah, I'd love to see /pol/ deleted, but the moderation required after would be too much effort for Hiro.

With around ~13 years of experience on 4chan across various boards. This is what will happen. It can go smoother or rougher depending on the amount of janitors/mods available for the initial first few days. If anything there will be some sustained ddos for few days before this is fixed.

You should've frequented the MM generals last year, I know that even without any new content they would make a thread but it's the same with some shounens.
The janitors would delete the thread with less than 20-30 replies and even deleted it when a new chapter was released, they make their chapter dumps on /c/ now

They didn't particularly do that when moot deleted /n/ and /new/ granted they were way less popular boards.
Also it just takes a bunch of very autistic shitposters to shit up the boards big time as some sort of vendetta. If a single person can delete every thread on /vp/ with a script, daily then imagine what a bunch of organized autistic /pol/tards can do with the site.

Not really keen on the process but isn't ban dodging really easy if you're phone posting? At least I've seen phone posters brag about it, and most of the normalfag outsiders from /pol/ should be also phone posters.
