Hey /his/, question.

Who's YOUR favorite board-tan?
>>
>>18627
here's the actual reason
>you're a pedophile
>>
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.

The revision, reinterpretation and retelling of past history is a part of the present. The loli is easily convinced by /k/, /int/ and /pol/ but always argues with Herodotus when he tries to explain.
>>
>>17579
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 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.

>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

>>
>>18905
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

As expected, it's just a vocal minority hating on /pol/.

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.
>>
>>20402
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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
