voting for marble ancient philosopher and post-industrial loli
OC can switch between them depending on what people want. It'll work.
This doesn't represent shit because the board is not even a day old.
This only represent autistic meta posters that have nothing to do with 95% of the boards they do ERP with and should be banned in here for meta like it is in said 85% of boards.
I still want the post industrial loli to be in some kind of uniform
Uniforms OC dependent. No strict policy for clothing.
Why not this except male?
Marble head with a normal body dressed in period clothing? Kind of like how r9k's is a robot.
The head could represent ancient history and the body more modern history.
Anon, stop trying to force the statue head. It's not going to happen.
Ok, how about a military loli
and the marble philosopher
battle loli's a best
I don't like a female. I think an elderly man most symbolizes wisdom, knowledge, and experience.
I could imagine an old marble statue yelling at edgy /pol/-tan to sit the fuck down and them give them a lecture. Shit would be great.
If we're going to stay a good board, we've got to stop drawing comparisons, regardless of what they are, to /pol/. We need to stop associating ourselves with that stigma and stop giving it attention.
So the designer of the $1 Educational Series silver certificate was a gay when he had a female History instructing a male Youth? /ss/ ain't gay.
It needs to be something simple if you want content of it.
See: /v/-tan and /co/-tan
/v/-tan is an angry guy with a circle head and a shirt. He gets shit made for him all the time. /co/-tan is a detailed man with normal proportions. He gets jack shit.
>just a loli that wears historical outfits
Then what's the point? It's literally every other board except just dressed up differently. It has to be something reflective of /his/ and our culture.
kick /a/ out
I want a real history tan
This is what I was saying last thread. You people want so hard to make something which reflects us, yet you're doing this before we've actually established ourselves.
Either wait or use the one idea which would actually fit the pre-board /his/ cultures on this board (an old rambling marble philosopher would be perfect)
PICK YOUR POISONS
half the reason that /v/ gets content is because /v/-tan was originally just meant to be "generic anon" in vidya comics
/co/-tan only gets dragged out when /co/ decides to stop fapping to /co/lette or whatever its waifu of the month is
First off, who honestly cares what they think? And secondly, how would having a unique character unlike any of the others which accurately depicts our board be less memorable than a generic character with the exact same traits as every single other board?
Just do 1 without the girl please. If we have a girl, it'll totally overshadow the other character and people will only care about her. And then they'll be no distinction between us and the characters of other boards.
We need to actually be decisive.
Then why not be creative with it and add a new layer of chemistry? Another average character added into the mix for other characters to have faggoty relations with is nothing special, but an old man philosopher character creates a perfect, new, and unique blend into the spectrum.
Here is a reason.
History is like the Roman God Janus, it has two faces looking each way.
The Old Philosopher man Herodotus represents the history that has been. The young girl Historia represents the history that is coming into being.
Hey /his/, question.
Who's YOUR favorite board-tan?
We should take the most influential woman in history, and then weebify her.
Alternatively, Herodotus and his eromenos, both turned into girls. Herodotosu-tan will appear in vaguely suggestive poses with eromenosu-tan, just barely suggesting something possibly wrong, but not beyond the pale of acceptability.
does anyone have the Japanese image of the famous World War Two generals made into qt grills?
Can someone explain why a fucking history board would pick a loli for their -tan?
I mean, at one hand, there aren't many historical anime, and the few of them are more focused on eastern history, so there's barely any connection with this board content.
And at the other, the idea itself is off. I mean, we're talking about a topic that implies lots of time on libraries, newspapers and ancient buildings, why a little girl, on the age of internet and smartphones, would spend so much time enclosed reading books about stuff that happened long before she was born?
I like the master/student relationship between the two tans.
also this idea
btw here's a sketch. But i can't make more gotta go.
hey, I remember this. does anyone have them? they had really big tits
I don't understand why we can't just settle with an old marble philosopher man.
I mean it's absolutely perfect. It's a character of ancient Greco-Roman base, making it historical in a period most people here are very interested in. Also, old age usually symbolizes knowledge and experience, both of which take part in historical discussions, and wisdom, which represents his refusal to accept baseless claims or ideas and always search for facts rather than interpretations. It's pretty much everything we've built up /his/ to be, there's nothing more to add.
Coh draws some great stuff.
Dixie is best girl.
I want a battle loli vidya with all his designs from early industrial to modern day tacticool
No, there's literally no reason for there to be a loli sidekick. As you can see the only possible reason is for these /a/-fags to satisfy their autism, hence why they'd rather just post anime girls rather than actually discuss.
>Not being on the j/aco/lyn creation thread.
>Comparing it to caricaturing a guy and putting some bunny ears on it.
I don't think this whole /his/-tan will be settle within the week.
well all the parallels kind of synced up too perfectly wtih Hiro though
The other fact is that it is too soon
In a week it might be all WWII all the time and the tan should reflect that
Or it could be nothing but Rome, Rome, Rome
So maybe don't get your heart set on anything yet
>General threads to avoid clutter
>/his/ RELATED TOPIC
We seem to have some very same-y threads cluttering up the board.
Can we eventually wrangle people into some serious discussions in a /WWIIG/ World War Two General, for one?
Do we really need independent threads for "Who REALLY started the war" or "How many Jews died in WWII?" Wrap it up in one thread
So far, I tend to agree with this.
I mean, most reasoning for the loli tan are contrived background story ("she is the student of the old man!", "she represents the history to come" (on a board about history before the 80's), "she's being redpilled by /k/ and /pol/!"), so is quite evident she's just there because she's cute.
Which is kind of sad, because drawfags will work on the design they find most appealing, so when having to choose between drawing an old man talking about serious stuff, and a random loli with cute lolis doing cute things, well, the old man design is pretty much fucked.
We can FORCE a personality though.
Ancient philosophers and not WW2 warfare are perfect for this board.
and the duality of the wise old man and the battle loli is perfect for personalities as people can find qualities they have in both.
>so when having to choose between drawing an old man talking about serious stuff, and a random loli with cute lolis doing cute things, well, the old man design is pretty much fucked
This is exactly what I'm worried about too. I want the board tan to represent something serious and meaningful, not just a generic cute character.
Then pick one for the main tan.
The one that will go to Balls and represent us
The other can still exist
I vote marble statue tan. Makes the most sense and I think will have good interaction between the other tans
Just an idea; /his/tan carries around a history book/books, always random. Maybe teachers jacket.
Glasses are a must.
how are these?
>tfw no qt pul pot gf
why even live?
No, you can't. Trying to make a character or number of characters which are so generic and general in order to cover the widest possible spectrum of personalities or ideas takes away the central focus and charm. A single character with a single personality works best.
Okay but what about [spoiler]the soccer team[/spoiler]?
IIRC, the Mayan had a lot of records, so much a random indigenous could write their entire sacred book, the Popol Vuh out of memory, and lots of events on their pyramids haven't been deciphered yet.
I start to believe there's one very vocal and obsessed guy spamming all these loli pics and samefagging a lot to get the impression the loli concept is more popular than what actually is.
I really, really want to understand why a loli beyond "because is cute", but I just don't get how a loli represents this board at all.
>but I guess there's also the juxtaposition between and old man and little girl.
Its a mix of opposites representing the duality of history and man
>wise yet naive
>Old yet from the universe's perspective incredibly young
>structured yet random
>patient yet arrogant.
I got an idea. An immortal little girl who always chimes in when people are talking about something that happened going
>OH I KNOW ALL ABOUT THAT! I WAS THERE
no matter what the event in question is. Wears a toga and glasses. Has curly red hair and acts like a grumpy old man despite looking 12. Gives rambly, half wrong accounts of literally anything that happened ever but for some reason still has at least partial knowledge of everything that's ever happened ever. Oh and she also hate's /pol/ and /int/ tan but goes out of her way to see them in order to complain about them.
No, you see most of pre-board /his/ culture was really firmly based around debunking and rejecting baseless /pol/ claims, so it not only makes sense but it would be a comical character mix to have /his/ be the old wise man who is constantly sitting down and lecturing the edgy /pol/ teen.
>little girl who constantly reincarnates but with perfect memory of her past life
>decides to chronicle history as she is always present when it happens
I support it.
Firstly, that represents the ideas of history in general. But it doesn't at all represent this board and how it acts, it's mostly like the old man compared to other boards.
And secondly, you know that if you have a little girl then it's going to totally overshadow the old man because people only want a cute character to look at and all our identity will be washed away.
>HURR /pol/ THIS /pol/ THAT
Fuck off. You asshats are going to ruin this board. Stop fucking talking about /pol/. Stop encouraging /pol/ cancer, stop mentioning /pol/ cancer, stop fucking blaming everything on /pol/ cancer. It's going to be on your fucking heads when this place isn't good anymore. Let the board be decent. Quit circlejerking about cancer and actually talk about what a thread's about.
so I made some OC
how do you guys like it,
I'll make a loli girl if you want
Because this is fucking 4chan and that's what we do! Or at least on 90% of the site by traffic volume. I'm ok with an old man too but I think that a loli will make for better board culture and in-universe shenanigans. Some of us have to write comics about this, remember.
>that obnoxious personality
>hates /int/ and /pol/ when it's bumfuck obvious we're full of crossboarders
If this is all you faggots can produce I'll take statue man.
>he actually doesn't know about the /his/ cultures on 4chan that existed before the board was created
Get out newfag reeeeeeeeeee
these are better
>you know that if you have a little girl then it's going to totally overshadow the old man because people only want a cute character to look at and all our identity will be washed away
Look at how many people on this board want the loli dead and for only the old man to exist.
Then tell me that having both will result in the old man going away.
There will be die hards on either side preventing either from disappearing.
Just like how green suit /pol/ still exists
Best OC so far.
I think the old man can work if we soften it a bit, and paint him doing casual shit while behaving casually. Toga and marble and stuff are ok, but having the room to made jokes is what would make him truly alive and unique.
Only in the biased eurocentric view of history which is awfully /pol/, you don't want to be /pol/ now do you /his/? You have to consider other cultures and worldviews and their input in this mascot design otherwise you are literally white washing them which is a problematic /pol/ thing that I know this board won't do because this isn't /pol/ am I right?
I'm not arguing either way. I'm just explaining why -tans are frequently weeb little girls.
I don't really think of marble statues when I think History. I'd prefer to go with a notable civilization besides greece/rome as the idea.
Like Aztec/Mayan/Mongol/Chinese, etc.
Also togas are pretty boring.
Just personal opinion.
A wise old man of ancient origin, making it historical. He's very resistant to baseless claims and only accepts facts rather than interpretations. He's very experienced and willing to share his knowledge through discussion and simple talk, but can also get very frustrated with people who decide to believe and talk about stupid shit and instead is determined to give them the truth and the proof of the truth.
Pretty accurate if you ask me.
This gave me an idea.
An all loli/female crewed nuclear submarine going on wacky adventures and competing with other all female crewed submarines of other nations.
GuP but Underwater
FUND IT KYOANI
Anime is history, anime is thanks to history, history created anime
>"No /pol/ here, get out with your lolocaust
>"No Tumblr please, go away with your herstory and--
>"Stop it with your desire to make a loli-tan
>"And PLZ stop posting about muh Africa."
>Not even a day old board.
I don't know whenever to laugh or weep, but I'll probably do both.
Good? So cluttering the board with Nazis, Hitler, Eastern front, Germany war machine in Africa, WWII, Holocaust, Adolf Hitler, did-the-jews-start-the-war, Naziism, fascism, Nazi war machine, WWII anime contest, NatSoc or Fascist fashion, Hitler, threads are GOOD in your opinion?
I don't give a fuck if you post anime. I just don't want you to post it in a totally irrelevant context in a thread about something totally different.
It's like if you went to a thread about the Italian City States and started posting pictures of soldiers on the Eastern Front of WW2. It makes no fucking sense.
>Dozens of threads are better than one at a time.
You live ITT don't you?
So basing on the most recent bits of this thread, we can pretty much deduce that the loli supporters are just shitposting and riding the /his/ wagon early on. So can we all agree that we can scrap that idea and settle for just the old marble philosopher?
History is mostly maps.
Perhaps /his/-tan should be some sort of explorer, maybe Indiana Jones or generic British safari in dress?
As expected, it's just a vocal minority hating on /pol/.
Most of us here either are /pol/ or have sympathies with /pol/, it's safe to say we can ignore the anti-/pol/ shit stirrers.
/pol/ and /his/ are allies.
I've already stated why it's wrong. The fact is that artists will only want to draw the cute little anime girl, which would drive the better character into obscurity. Plus the girl has literally zero point except to satisfy anime autists, which isn't what we're supposed to be doing.
fuck off with your shit. this is just the kind of autism i would expect from /pol/.
literally every fuck thread where someone is having fun making stupid anime girls there is some faggot like you who wanders in just to call it degenerate. -tan culture isn't for people who don't like anime, this is the history board on an anime imageboard. if you and all the other /pol/tards who take yourselves so seriously that you couldn't bear being represented by a cute anime girl can't handle that then fuck off to stormfront or reddit or something and stop shitting up a weeb site with your arrogant faggotry.
>The fact is that artists will only want to draw the cute little anime gir;
If that's what you think will happen. Than too bad.
the artists decide all. Both our opinions would fall into dust if the artists go 3rd party and pick something entirely different to represent /his/
>a-anyone I don't like is /pol/!
Went there once, absolutely never again
And if this is how people are going to view the culture across boards, then I'd like my board to be represented accurately. If you've really fallen to the point where you have to fall back on "B-but if you don't support this choice then it's just not for you!" You know you're losing. Hard.
no, my point is that you are basically fucking /pol/ even if you don't go there as the way you are acting echoes a lot of sentiment on /pol/ regarding board-tans and anime.
stop taking yourselves so fucking seriously, a little girl is no less degenerate than a marble statue. how about you fucking draw something if you want your opinion on what /his/-tan should be to count?
voting on names for /his/tan, if we're set on making /his/ female i was thinking /his/olda
/a/ here, you're all retarded
Protip: /a/ doesn't give a shit, crossboarders from terrible boards do. If you're here to stay, be thankful that most faggots in this thread will go back to their own boards as soon as the novelty wears off.
Though honestly you should just go with the loli and generally accept smug anime girls being posted in your discussion, if only to make users of said terrible boards less inclined to come here. Pragmatism over idealism, I always say.
I don't dislike because I think it's degenerate. If we were an anime board or some other where having a cute little character would be justified, I would jump right on that. But for our board it just doesn't make any sense, especially when we're constantly putting forward a better solution.
And don't try to pull out the shit about "tans are meant to be little anime girls!", you only just now decided to fall back on that whereas if you were really serious you would've used it a long, long time ago.
Oh wowy wowy
Lookit this reeelly important thread to make a mascot! No post limit on this bby.
Doodlers start your pencils!
My history teacher was a pretty cool british guy as well. I remember when he would make stabbing noises when talking about the medieval ages.
And the puny jokes I often lost my sides to.
I wish I did better in that class.
Yeah, it's just weeaboo noise.
Okay so this is a rough sketch of my idea at >>19542
I couldn't do a proper drawing because I blew up my main computer a little bit ago but anyway i'll be attempting to doodle other ideas itt too. Including non-loli ones.
Also FUCKING WINDOWS PHONE TRYING TO KEEP ME FROM PPUTTING PICTURES FROM IT ON TO MY LINUX SYSTEM REEEEE
dual mascots could be a thing, a few boards do that.
The girl for contemporary history and the dude for the older stuff possibly. Im taken with the idea of having a marble statue be the dude very much.
Yeah he taught us in Aus [read Spider&Snake Country], and was a cool no-older-than-thirty kind of guy.
He was the best kind of British teacher. Unless all British teacher are like that nowadays?
We don't have a diversity quota to meet. Our tan should be whatever color represents the board best.
Chinese would be a good notion, but the old Greek is good too.
On the other hand, our tan could just be Sima Qian.
How is this thread staying so far up the catalog despite being at the bump limit?
Is there such a thing as an invisible sticky?
smug anime girls trigger the most insufferable /pol/acks. it is pretty funny watching them get pissed off and start ranting about how degenerate anime is.
>And don't try to pull out the shit about "tans are meant to be little anime girls!", you only just now decided to fall back on that whereas if you were really serious you would've used it a long, long time ago.
you mean just then, in the second post i have made in this thread?
i'll say it again now, a statue is a fucking stupid board-tan and a little smug anime girl would be better. now we are 2/3, is my argument valid yet?
Marble statue dude and a qt reenactor who dresses up in uniforms and period clothing
I like the dual marble statue with child idea. Not so much the lone one. I mean I know that it makes sense but from a board culture standpoint I hate it, and /his/-tan will likely be under used if we don't add something cute. I know that sounds bad but it's just the way it is.
I understand if you don't like it but I still do.
>Such waste of talent.
>This fucking thread.
I wish I had a gif or webm that expressed the pity and hysterical mad laughing am going through right now.
How about a guy made of marble with a sphinx head wearing ancient greek clothes?
That's exactly what makes it obvious.
Can our loli be a little masochistic?
Imagine this but she's wearing a Nazi camp uniform.
Huh, the statistics at the right bottom are on italics. That usually indicates the thread had hit the auto-sage, and it have been like that since the 300 reply.
So, nope, no higher bump limit for /his/, just this thread.
Yeah but Western civilization started in Greece, Athens was known to have aristocrats and elites of golden hair and pale skin. The Greek isles were much whiter then, than they are now due to centuries of mixing and Ottoman conquest.
>>it's more like /his/ is /pol/'s daughter, the way vivian james is /v/'s.
This is as far from the truth as it gets
There's a small fucking section of people who actually support the Vivian bullshit and they mostly moved to 4+4chan.
It seemed a good idea to get the SJWs to shut the fuck up but it turned into waifu bullshit and is the complete opposite of the intended original goal.
Regardless of that /his/ is like /pol/ and /int/ had a kid yeah.
/pol/ is fucking great.
I don't really have anything against Jews personally, I just love the memes.
I tried something. What kind of facial hair should he have?
