Thread for creating /his/-tan (with a possible companion) to represent the board to all of 4chan.
Ignore all shitposts and feel free to contribute.
I agree, when people think of history they think of old men. This probably has something to do with the subject's declining popularity. I suggest somebody a bit younger, but possibly still bearded.
I think old man because Greek historians, people have been quite fond of him. The companion could be the "young" to his "old", whether it be child or young adult.
Do we even have old tans? I think /tv/ is a middle age guy.
She can be hystorical
Because it makes a good chemistry if he's often putting up with the younger companion's revisionist bullshit and gullibility.
I guess he could just be some kind of teacher and have random loli and shota students pestering him, that works too. And he has a fetish for young boys, obviously.
Cleaned it up from last thread. Say hello to His and Humani!
>Because it makes a good chemistry if he's often putting up with the younger companion's revisionist bullshit and gullibility.
I like it.
>old man states a historical fact
>loli spices it up by talking about how it relates to philosophical ideas and starts making a historical painting thread
>old man getting more and more pissed off at all the embellishment but is really just tsundere and actually cares very deeply for loli.
Maybe as others say, the loli could be dressed like a cute little Egyptian.
fuck off with your loli shit
through whole history women existed only to get married and then being a children-making fuck machine
there's no reason to make one our tan, only weebs want it because muh cute gurlz!!!
I went further and removed the shitty grey tint
All of you are aware that /his/-tan having a companion is just insulating the entire concept and missing interesting interactions with the other boards?
I mean, you want a companion because he would be lecturing him about ancient history, and correcting his misinformation.
>Who is /x/?
>Who is /pol/?
Also, have you seen the academic discussions about whether stuff like psychology, economy and history are actually sciences or just disciplines?
/his/ and /sci/ would unlimited possibilities.
Lastly, if you're taking the Greek route, we can have... let's call it, ecchi interactions between /cm/ and /his/, followed by /his/ dismissing /y/, because "I'm not gay".
Tell me, honestly, what would add a companion, particularly a loli, that wouldn't add any other board -tan?
Why can't it be a grizzled giant old man and the tiny little mischievous companion he has buzzing around him in these interactions? History should be seen as fairly austere and grumpy but with a heart of gold, essentially babysitting the little tyke.
>loli = fetish
I don't give a fuck about the sexual aspects of this. I just want something cute and/or interesting.
Don't be stupid.

/his/ is a single board, just because it covers more than one subject doesn't change that, especially History is part of Humanities.
/aco/ is doing the same crap that is happening in this thread, with "sidekicks" and other unnecessary garbage that has no place in board-tan creation.
>/x/ is into conspiracies and won't hear anything against them
>/pol/ won't talk about anything but Nazis
>/his/ bullies /sci/ into helping build a 'big history' timeline
>"fucking dudes has nothing to do with being gay, greek did it all the time"
>watches shows and movies with /tv/ and points out inaccuracies the whole time
>goes to museums with /trv/
>plays Sid Meyer's Civilisation with /v/ bros
think of it as some sort of apprentice for the old man.
interaction example is when herodotus is having a lecture, historia would answer questions to anyone who attends and herodotus would add his remark.
Yeah man, you should fear the /a/genda, we'll turn all of you into pedophiles.
Jesus, I usually don't mind people's kink unless it's plain old CP or irl guro, but lolicons have become quite pushy haven't they? What's the deal? Are you guys really aiming to be obnoxious like furries?
You're making the assumption it's all about sex instead of it just being something that's adorable.
Sorry did I step on your Eurocentric world view? Eastern civilization was far more advanced than the west until very recently, considering the scope of history. There is already a noticeable divide of threads between the two subjects.
I feel like pre-humanity history is more historians encroaching onto science, /sci/ is technically older and would know the basics better. Like /sci/ explaining to /his/ how 'primordial soup' works.
Greeks beat you to it. They already have Clio muse of history.
>mfw no confucian scholar elite
When did rome develop printing, again?
Technically, is it history. But not really. It's complicated. Historians trained to deal with human history generally can't make sense of pre-humanity, it's more up to the science crowd. So it is history but not /his/ stuff because we wouldn't know what the fuck to do with it.
What about characteristics?
I think he should be
>doomed to repeat himself
>infrequently making obscure hisorical references
>and sometimes boring and judgmental
>cleanly, he has a "maid every day"
Remind me again please why subposters from /a/ can't hold their subposterness on their own board and force some horse drivel board culture thing on a fresh board that's literally just a couple of hours old?
Look you unintelligent peasants, when the board will settle down and in time it will create it's own demographics, it's own specific culture and memes, only then will board-tans hold any relevancy
So trek back to your anime cave and take your own lives.
Quick crap doodle. Including a variation. Just in case we need some moeshit.
Inb4 photo is tilted
You know? I think history loli is our first meme.
I don't know how much support does the loli actually have by this point, but I'm pretty sure a good deal of people here are posting just because butthurt and hurt feelings. Look at this: >>30488
Congrats, /his/trionics, your first bait.
I think someone who looks kind of like Professor Plum from Clue would be good. Someone obviously academic, and possibly with some interesting character flaws once the board's culture gets more established.
I'll try again.
This board doesn't need a -tan just because you braindead shitheads swarmed /his/ like a locus and now are trying to force whatever crap you want. Why can't you contain your autism to your containment board? Literally the exact same shit happened on /biz/ where you tried pushing for some furry character as the board's "mascot"
And this isn't trolling, i am geniuly furious that everything you touch turns to shit. So hands off /his/ and leave it to it's natives.
i just had an awesome idea.
now you'll need to forgive me the shitty drawing, the only thing i have to use is a laptop touchpad.
the board was created on halloween, therefore /his/-tan should be a ghost.
>ghosts are from the past
>history is from the past
>furries are the same as people who watch anime or even just post smug anime reaction images on an anime imageboard
>i am genuinely furious
calm down there autizmo
I say we use at least some features of Empress Theodora of Byzantium.
eh pretty much the rest of my idea is that she died at the start of recorded history or something. not much else to it, i just think that with the board being created on halloween and all, a ghost is kind of perfect.
All you lolifags fuck off. And that faggot that desperately wants to make a tan just after a few hours of creation can also fuck off.
Mods please delete these threads until a week or two into this board's life. We can't really determine what the board culture is like right now, and we want people who will be frequenting the board often to come up with his-tan, yeah? Having this thread right away is not a good idea I think.
>Mods please delete these containment threads
great idea senpai
> wearing all sorts of traditional clothing and uniforms
Just like Heinrich.
>Originally /g/ was born as the guro board.
>She got the -tan in pic related. Is based on some Japanese tropes, because 4chan was even weaboo back then than now, and because guro is a Japanese word, and the entire board was focused on drawn gore, real life pics were banned, iirc.
>Eventually moot decided to axe the board. /g/-tan had an orgasm.
>This is pure speculation, but I think it was removed because the violent nature of the content was pushing some legal limits, so at one hand the party van was knocking on moot's house, and at the other, several sites didn't wanted to have anything to do with 4chan, like yahoo.
>Eventually /g/ is reborn as the technology board.
>But now and then, you can heard about haunted houses.
And of course the standart issue of /a/'s intellectual capacity "No U" when someone calls them out on their shit.
No seriously fuck off. You're no historians, just history enthusiasts on the level of highschool knowledge, that proved just now, that they'd rather talk about stupid IRRELEVANT SHIT like ANIME and LOLICON on a fucking board dedicated to HISTORY
I'm done here, there isn't much left to say because you've gave your impression as to what your group of people are, to the rest of /his/'s residents. Hope you fags enjoy your weeboo shit while it lasts.
Let this serve as an example of who we're going to share the board with.
It would need features (hair style, arrow in head, etc) that carry over between the various types of clothing and uniforms though, so as to be recognizable. Unless you're just relying on the ghost-tail.
There's a lot of time and space to take inspiration to from. It could just change depending on conversation, what's on TV, whatever it feels like.
Though I feel like this would be more suited to a male character. Historically, they had more freedom.
Just don't reply to him and he'll go away.
>assuming it's the same person when you're so butthurt you've been called our on your bullshit
And i'm not even him.
Seriously, if you wanna talk meta shit just do it on /qa/, this is a place for the discussion of history and humanities. You'd know if you read the sticky.
>mfw both an /a/utist and a PhD candidate in History
>Hasnt read the sticky on what's allowed on this board and what isn't
>thinks he's in the right to call someone else new
my proposition is that he be modeled after this ancient meme
people literally only want Herodotus because he's in the sticky and they don't know anything about him.
So faggots, what's going to be /his/ tan origin story?
I'm not sure if it's official, but i heard that /aco/ tan was formed when /sci/ tan went mad scientist and tried to perform a fusion between /d/ and /co/ with a gamma ray of doom.
Could we have something similar or is it just plain retarded?
Kill yourself. Herodotus has only been the sticky imagine for 2 hours and that was after some people in the other thread suggested him.
The idea of an old man was set in stone. The other question is whether he has a loli companion or not. Some people seem to get furious when the idea of lolis gets brought up.
So a loli greek statue, with a fake beard, who's possessed by the ghost of Herodotus. I think we've got this.
Why are the proponents for a loli not even wanting to debate this? This is still being decided, in fact hours ago the Herodotus inspired tan was already decided. We were just thinking of a companion until the loli proposers just escalated into replacing this idea for no explained reason.
Can't you be content about deciding on a companion?
There are already a bunch of loli board-tans, why are people trying to force it here? This is history not anime.
That takes some dedication to sperg on a new board to get what you want and claim the other ideas don't count. Stop acting like a spoiled brat.
>try to create a geninune good looking mascot
>pedo loli fags want to create some dumb little girl
pedofags ruin everything
How about someone who looks kind of like this guy? Someone obviously knowledgeable, but someone who we could put whatever personality we need on depending on how the board culture develops.
people on tv or ck don't jump down your throat when you post pictures of smug anime girls
>there are people on this board right now who don't think keksandra is for sexual
Even though this is nazi shit, I thought it looked cute and had a bit of humanity in it
>Look mom, I'm backseat moderating
Wow, could you be anymore pathetic?
Anime is always relevant on any corner of 4chan senpai
I already just pointed out this site is no longer dedicated to anime and has different boards with different topics now, including its own anime board.
Why be off topic? I'm trying to get a good answer here, but I'm not seeing it.
What do you think i've been trying to say all this time?
These people are underdeveloped manchildren. Shit, reasoning with a child is easier than their mental retardation
>Doesn't like it when people tell him to fuck off because this is off-topic
>tells people to like what he likes
Definition of cancer.
Count me the anime to non-anime discussion board this site has. Go on i'm waiting. Crushing your false self-entitled sense of elitism to justify your autism has always been my favourite passtime
Of course not. He'd need to be more grizzled and a bit older, it's just a general idea of the design. I'll try and draw something later (though I'm rather bad at it) that's more accurate. I just think that a "professorial" character would be a good fit for the board, slightly better than an old Greek philosopher and far better than any loli whatever.
>people actually want our tan to be an old Greek man instead of a true Roman

Pro-tip: You can't.
Yo I love this one a ton, very good art too. She's like a connisuer of history or something. Is it possible for you to give her like a watch or something?? I'm not sure where it would fit.
Also is that Nordic, Greek, Austrian?
nah /his/-tan is a g/his/t now.
loli g/his/t, old man g/his/t, they are the same g/his/t.
I like it, /his/toria has good levels of brattyness.
