I'm really sick of these braindead moderation changes.

/a/ is dead. It's been dead for years, and banning a symptom doesn't change the cancer. All this leads to is some low effort general OPs for a few weeks until the latest mod on a crusade gets bored and gives up.

Nobody here is capable of discussion, because all of us who were here for a decade or longer have given up trying to converse with the crunchyroll subscribers. Just leave the fucking site alone, at best you'll just make it worse.

Just go to /vg/. Animes that attract generalfags also have video game spin offs. 100% of the time.

Also if you're supporting the idea of generals anywhere go to /vg/ anyways and look at what happens to threads there, and then look around the rest of the site to see what happens when general-conditioned posters leave their circlejerks

Even worse. Not having to cultivate a persistent consistent persona throughout a thread is one reason people are here, rather than elsewhere. Being able to be helpful, sarcastic, thoughtful, juvenile, or any combination of them all in the same thread without regard to past posting style is fun, anon.

>they didn't delete a single dbs thread
Many dbs threads at once is what the creators of the sticky wanted. Why would they delete them?
>>
So tell me, what the fuck would be talked about if there were no generals on /a/?

Unlike /v/, where there are tons of things to talk about video games besides specific series (due to the vast variety of video games), anime is pure story. Can you imagine /a/ without generals? For one, it would be dead, and for two, it would be:
>best girl threads
>threads about studios that will die in 10 replies
>threads about art that will die in 10 replies
>reaction threads about new episodes that last for a couple days or so (see: "I love emilia" or "all girls my age love dick!")
And that would literally be it. Nothing more, maybe less. Anime as a whole is 90% about watching specific series and talking about them. So generals are fucking required.

God you anti-generalfags are such whiny cunts. Just don't click on the fucking threads you retards

I have 17 hidden DB threads right now, yet I'm not complaining about anything. Why? Because it's only 17 threads.

Welcome to the basics of liberalism: leave everyone to pursue their own happiness, enforce lenient rules that only exist to make sure nobody ruins things for everybody elves and a society prospers. Enforce totalitarian rules on the basis of "I don't like that" or "this triggers people" and a society decays.

Rules are always a neccessity but the more restrictive they get, the less fun whatever these rules govern get. The rules the mods have newly implemented on /a/ restrict freedom without securing that posters are unable to ruin things for other posters. In fact, threads dedicated to less popular seasonal shows now suffer because the dragonball community is no longer contained to one or two threads.
>>
>>161315380
It makes sense on paper.

In practice, all the anons who know the fucking answers never browse there because why would any. So really its a way to get people to stop rule-breaking posts asking questions more easily and then linking to it.

No thanks.

At least on /u/ we have general threads for each series/fetishes to discuss things in it, and it goes slow, so no one misses anything, which is good.

/a/ became crazy ride where good anime discussions threads for currently airing series will get killed by few posters who will just want to create threads for few characters than actually discuss the show in one. Look at DB how that changed /a/ almost instantly.
>>
>>161315251
It's even worse now, actually the worse threads /a/ has. Everyone there acts like they're a part of some community, there is no anonymity. Everyone knows each other, everyone talks to each other as if this place is their public discord server. If the thread is inactive, they'll spam shit to keep it alive, or to make it to 500, so they can immediately post another thread.
Why THIS shit is allowed makes no sense.

You can still talk about whatever you want, (provided it's related to /a/) just not in a general.

I personally hate dragonball but I don't give a fuck about the threads because it's ridiculously easy to just scroll fucking past it instead of complain about it.

>>161315486
New content is what drives the most discussion on /a/. DB is a big franchise with a weekly show that airs new stuff. Of course there would be more threads than usual. I agree that the topic itself is more likely to attract newfags that make more threads than necessary, but this isn't going to be the "death of the board" or anything silly like that. Once it stops airing, the activity will die down just like with any show.

I need some relationship advice: So I've been dating 4 girls for a while now and now the two of them I like most both want to be exclusive.

Girl 1 is really attractive, competes in pageants and has worked as a ring girl, studies Social Science for a degree, has great morals and is intelligent. I look slightly above average but I'm ripped, I feel like I punched above my weight with her and I'm not sure I could land someone that attractive again.

Girl 2 is overweight but still kinda chubby cute. She studies computer science for degree and most of our hanging out has just been cuddling together and watching anime. I think she views me in the same way I view girl 1 in terms of punching above their weight. She's just a really bubbly person to be around and I can just describe it as wholesome, the sex is pretty bad though(girl 1 is way better). I think that if I didn't go with her it would hurt her a lot
and that might be affecting my thought process.

I don't know what to do and would welcome advice.

Generals getting banned does not mean "you can only make one thread about X when a new chapter comes out/episode airs" it means don't have a thread up constantly.

Lazy, impotent, or both mods trained the people who dislike a franchise to shit up threads, since that gets the thread deleted, rather than the shit-posters effectively banned. If anyone wants to make /a/ great again, or even for the first time, figure out how to put teeth into bans, without changing the anonymous nature of the place.

Madoka spawned more than just that moron let's be real here.

I don't see the problem, Don't image dump, Don't force discussion to keep your "general alive" and don't create mini communities in a general.

I agree with you but there's no need to wait a few hours before making a new thread. Often a thread dies while people are in the middle of a discussion, so making a new one after it dies would be appropriate. Making a new thread when nobody is talking about anything would be bad practice.

You know, in the state that /a/ is right now, DB really should just get exiled to its own board. It's a big enough franchise to warrant it, what with the super show going on every week until the end of time, all the video games, the endless discussions of people watching the gorillionth remaster of Z for the gorillionth time, and it'd probably do better than /vp/ is doing right now desu.

There's nothing wrong with general threads. But an OP should not start with a "general format" bullshit.

Also let me define what an allowed general thread is. It's a franchise that has had an official MAIN product (so no spin-offs or side-material because I know a lot of generals like to use those to continue their circle-jerkery) released in the past month (LN volume of an anime-adapted LN, anime episode, weekly manga chapter). Monthly manga are a unique case, there's no way you can talk about one chapter for an entire month. A week should be the maximum so that everyone interested has time to read the chapter and discuss it here. Yes, I'm looking at you, Shingeki no Kyojin. Ban x days threads on sight.

Kyoko Fridays and Miuna mondays rarely happen these days but it took years for them to die off after their anime ended. Right now Megumin Mondays are still in though.

Muvluv threads should be banned. What are they still doing on this board? Etcetera.

Fuck off with /ag/ idea, shitposter.

Whatever stupid, idiotic portmanteau you can think of involving the Strawhats and any other character, not fucking happening. You wanna know why I despise you retards? Let me put it this way.
Let's say one day you find a guy punching himself in the face. After he punches himself, he starts whining about how much it hurts, and then he punches himself again. Then he starts whining, and punches himself. And then he does it again. And again. And again. And even after his face is bloody, his eyes are swollen shut, and he's spit out half his teeth, he just keeps doing it..
Now, at first sure, you might feel worried about the fucking retard, or maybe find it funny and laugh at him, but eventually you get tired of seeing it. And because it never fucking stops, the apathy you feel eventually boils over into raw hatred and you want nothing more than to strangle the fucking moron to put him out of your misery.

One isn't ever much worse than the other. They're all terrible because that is the nature of what a general becomes and what is trying to be prevented.

It will be very difficult to get people to stop redirecting, and for even potential OPs to not want to add to an existing thread that guarantees x posters already invested in discussion for that series. They'll think their thread won't get posted in and die early and Anons complain when multiple threads are made. This won't be reversed overnight.

I don't know if this is bait, but it actually would be good if google removed 4chan from its search results so we would get less normalfags.

Because it's not enforced. It worked for ponies and the likes because it was.

Honestly, this board is quite timid to what it was like in 2009
Also why would anyone else care about your opinion of what is "too far"?
>>
>>161316321
If that was the case the whole site would be spammed to hell. Stop being a retard.

Generals are dead.
There are 24 DBS threads and 5+ Naruto threads right now.

Thanks mods.
>>
>>161316310
Off-topic complaining about /pol/ is more prevalent than actual /pol/ leaking.
>>
>>161316301
Stop pretending you don't know what a General is. Everyone does. That's how the /v/ and /vg/ split "worked" and created two terrible boards. There are still threads dedicated to particular games on /v/.
>>
>>161316136
>why should we carter to them and not the core audience?
Odd's are that the "core audience" doesn't generate much revenue.
>>
>>161316381
Still, it feels good locking down on shitpost hubs
>>
You're not getting your /ag/ you subhuman piece of /v/ fuck. Kill yourself tool.

Fuck off retard. Try having responsibilities in your life.

DBS shitposter is so bad one idiot posted real life child pornography

I remember when /spa/ happened and the generalfags STILL had their threads going. That was some uncanny shit.
>>
>>161316457
We tried to warn them that letting shounenshitters have free reign on here would kill the board, but they wouldn't listen.
>>
>>161316312
They're not Generals, they're just regular threads. Once they begin to create new thread after new thread after new thread without any new content, then they cease being regular, allowed threads and begin becoming generals again.
>>
>>161316278
4chan can't be deleted. Something something streisand effect.

Yes

No, there's only 3 I made one to test and see if they were getting banned

remove the sticky

They should just ban DB threads outright like Naruto used to be. All the other usual generals are good now, but DB threads are now filling up the board. It's getting ridiculous.
>>
>>161314756
so just make a rule to use the subject field
>>
>>161315884
For what, the thread we get every other day at most? A comic board without capeshit would be the ideal solution.
>>
>>161316461
This. /pol/ honestly rarely leaks here because it's rarely ever relevant to anything /a/-related. Other boards have it much worse.
>>
>>161316490
wow... so this is the power... of generals

One Piece gets more IP posts than this thread on release days.
Pathetic
>>
>>161316547
Do you think they will magically go away? /a/ has always tried to pin the shitposting on one scapegoat when the shitters just migrate to another thread
>>
I seriously hope DBS retards will keep acting like shitflinging monkeys until mods decide to completely ban all DBS threads.

Also OP should eat a bullet.

THANK GOD

The new rules target generals where half the thread are reposts like "Reminder Son Goku is beautiful" and other kind of shitposting.

>>161316549
But then you've just created /ag/.

You'll get bored of shitposting too. I'm sure of it.
