It's seems Hiro-kun is trying to improve 4leafs. How can he improve /v/?
Webm with sounds maybe?
Lets summon Hiro.
Split /v/ into Japanese games and western games
Allow fun threads again. The great mod crackdown went too far. Instead of some offtopic threads letting be get off some steam, all shitposting had to be vidya related thus deteriorating the quality of threads.
Get Hiro to make a sticky that states what is and isn't allowed on /v/, and make sure that it's enforced by moderators and janitors who know what the fuck they're doing and won't bend the rules to fit their own agenda. The only way to make /v/ any better is to combat the shitposting directly as it is now, not ignoring it because of "/v/ culture" and letting it spread.

An upvote system, usernames, and a site-wide ban on racist, sexist and homophobic slurs!
Make a /cel/ board to remove most of that youtube shit.
And for /vr/, they can add finally add 6th generation to their discussion: ps2, game cube, xbox, gba, ngage, tapwave, etc.
Hear hear these bigots will have no say in this matter
remove the sjw mods luggage lad hired before his great cuckening and reallow gamergate threads to rub it in their faces
>sjws will be triggered and reply with "le GOBBLEDEGOOPERS xDD faGGot!" to this post
non-vidya shit should be deleted, but as stated here >>313882414 we can clarification on what can and cannot be posted. The mods would also have to follow Hiro's direct instructions and not let their personal beliefs get in the way
4chan is literally ran by older Godai
WE ACTUALLY CAN SUMMON HIRO Y'KNOW
/CO/ DID IT
/A/ DID IT
SO CAN WE
Just make 4chan cookies detect reddit, tumblr, and 9gag cookies and block access if there's any present, as a start.
>b-b-but redditors could just clear cookies if they wanted to come on 4chan!
They don't know how to do that they're literally retarded.
For AGDG especially it would be amazing to have >3MB webm.
in fact I always thought webm was the fuckin future of 4chan... but apparently it isn't because of copyright law? what makes the 3MB limit so special? Why not 2MB, why not 4MB?
/v/ needs to be cleaned up big time. And by that I mean off topic threads and random shitposting needs to be deleted. Also a sticky on here telling people what is and is not allowed to be posted. Mods need to follow the rules laid down by Hiro and not follow their own SJW beliefs
You wanna fix /v/ guys there you go. Now actually start getting serious and stop acting like retards
My point is that moot's whole philosophy about tertiary discussion is pretty bad in my opinion. People are coming to the video game board because they have the joint interest of video games. If people who love video games, or even in a thread about a specific video game, want to talk about something else, why is that a bad thing? Maybe tons of people who play games think a particular news story is interesting. It's not about video games but I think it should belong on the video game board if it's an interest to people who are interested in video games.
We have to sacrifice a virgin first to summon Hiro, you morons.
Fucking kill yourself for that terrible idea
The weeks before /vg/ were some of the worst on this trashcan board
>implying offtopic threads aren't the best threads on this board
you new aren't you?
>The Reddit and 4chan userbases aren't pretty much the same by now
Its 2015 why the fuck do you guys still think this is some secret unknown clubhouse? 4chan is one of the most visited websites daily in the world, people come here who go on alot more than just Reddit.
This isnt 2006 anymore people only post like they do on 4chan because of anon. If 4chan had a user system like Reddit then the posting here would be alot more like Reddit
>Inb4 some form of go back to Reddit
I've been to Reddit like twice when you idiots link it nonstop
>make thread asking to delete a board
>post like to thread on that board
>sit back and watch the flames
The vast majority was just simple shitposting. You've been here since /q/ was around so you should already know this.
>adds dumb cartoon porn board
>still no /hist/
/q/ was depressing. It was all the retardation of a major board except you knew the OPs were being 100% serious, and the mods would have to reply to them all if they didn't want a "THEYRE DELETING [x] THREADS IT'S A CONSPIRACY" on their hands. I'd have gotten rid of it too.
Continue to split /v/
/vc/- Video Game Community Streamer threads, posting streams and eceleb drama
/vn/- New Video Games: thread to discuss video games. After one month any discussion of them are banned and sent to /vg/ or /v/
/av/- Adult Video Games: discussion of h games, Adult VNs and general video games pornography
In all seriousness,
give me my fucking Sound threads back
I would literally trade one of my pinkies for their return
Forget about /v/, let's have him add /l/ back.
Never been ther in my life. Nice try tho. Forced registration, but letting people stay anonymous would improve 4chan immensely. That way, people would actually think about what they type before they hammer the post button with no reprocautions because ban evading is as easy as unplugging your modem for dynics and as easy as going into your cmd and router settings for static ips.
ever since this fag took over i've noticed every time i enter a thread on the front page its always 2 or 3 posts in
before front thread pages would usually be a good 50 posts in atleast unless you caught a thread early which was kinda rare, now ever thread on the front page is an early one instead of the threads filled with posts, its weird
There are more websites than 9fag, tumblr and Reddit anon.
>Not browsing /sp/ purely for shitposting
The board is more shitposting than /v/ and its all ontopic because its sports banter
Drag the /tv/ mods and jannies into the street and execute them, roll their bodies into the gutters. Bring in a new team to delete illegal and off-topic content and nothing else. Monitor moderation logs and cut off the fingers of anyone caught deleting something outside of illegal or offtopic content.
I would love /l/ back
but let's focus on /v/ first.
>/v/ deserves dubs as much as any board
How can you live with being so wrong? /v/ was the worst-behaved board about it, like half the threads before they were taken away were either dubs or derailed by dubs, and taking them away was like a breath of fresh air. Find some other way to shitpost.
>and removing sage was a fucking mistake
Sage was never "removed," only made invisible. If you want to use it as a downvote you can still announce it in your post.
But sage was never removed. I'm aware that sage doesn't mean downvote but the fact you want it to be visible shows that you want it to be.
/v/ needs mods that aren't completely shit for one that allow this board to be the receptacle of trash maymays people want to spam to become big from other boards
/v/ has actually been fine for a long time now. There aren't as many jimmies, 4 AM, cringe, and feel threads as there were just 3 years ago. Also LOL threads are finally being culled for the comics that have nothing to do with videogames
The real problem board is /tv/. However, I honestly think that it's a lost cause at this point and just want it to sink further into the void. Just imagine what would happen if the word cuck was permabanned
offtopic threads about niche hobbies,deep sea,space etc are the essence of this place.
just look at all of those triggered fucks in this thread calling don't allow to post this don't allow to post that.
this is not the problem with /v/ it never was,the problem is people that come and post without zero idea about this place and community.in itself it would not be a problem because like everything mentioned above you can just ignore it instead of being assblasted and calling ban on it.
the problem is the influx of new people coming here shitpost without lurking and learning the culture of this place make the other newcomers feel welcomed here and they will soon overthrow the people who were here since long ago.
you can call ban on no video games as much as you want it wont fix shit it was never the problem.
>implying it won't just be /pol/ lite with edgy hitler did nothing wrong and caligula/bad ruler threads
>/japg/ becomes a thing
as with any other fucking board, if it's a topic you like you'll at best have a moderately like-hate relationship with the board.
its better we don't get it
SUMMON HIRO WE NEED YOUR POWER COME ON
\o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/
Edgy. This board's shit and it can only take a mass movement of desktop denizens to:
>stop acting like retards
>stop acting like retards on purpose
>flame off-topic threads
We also need more active mods just to ban the shit out of anyone who tries to mess stuff up. I'm talking a purge.
I agree, but only as a last measure. Hiro needs to direct the mods to clean up the place and bring the banhammer down long and hard for a few weeks. The casual newfriends will get bored and leave. But if it fails, then I wouldn't mind registration although the rules need to be clearly communicated and fairly enforced.
They're only good once every few months. Even then just a certain few kinds of threads are good, namely the ones that have to do with things the majority of the boards shares nostalgic memories of, porn or niche things like >>313884604 said. The ones obviously made solely for shitposting can fuck themselves with a rake, however.
Let's get more competent mods than the useless piece of shit we have now?
The only thing /tv/ needs to be back on top is to kill the mods and hotpocket jockies and bring in a new team that wasn't "hired" from irc to be moot's No Fun Allowed brigade. As the core userbase returned it would slowly drive out the faggots from elsewheres who all moved in after /q/ in 2012 got moot to clean out the userbase for them.
I've been here longer than you have (sadly) it was nice back then when the user base was small and was just people playing pretend, but now the user base is too big, and Poe's Law took full effect.
Registration will still keep you anonymous, if you stll chose to do so, for everyone except for admins and moderators. I see no downside to this.
MAKE A BOARD CALLED /par/ for pickup and romance!
THIS NINE OF MINE GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWER
IT'S CHILLING GRIP TELLS HIRO TO GET HIS CHINK ASS IN HERE
All of the current mods and janitards are moot's underlings and this site isn't going to get better until every last one of them is scrubbed out and replaced with people who aren't looking to exert their agendas on their board of choice.
Although /v/ is a huge board and I can see why it would be difficult, moderation is a major issue. Pretty much every day I see something that makes me feel like the janitors and mods are incompetent at their jobs.
Originally it was about Indie devs getting cozy with "game journalists" to promote their games. Then Zoe sucked like 37 dicks for her game ( which wasn't even good), and people rightly freaked out. All was going smoothly for like a week, then radicals took over and it's been a hate group ever since.
Everyone that wants to discuss youtube/twitch has a place.
Everyone who wants to bitch about news/gossip has a place.
/v/ enters another golden age.
>it's a hate group
/v/ and 4chan in general desperately needs a casual/newfriend filter. We got too popular and were inundated with newfriends.
There are new anons here that legitimately think that just typing cuck, fam, etc is accepted and even a prerequisite to fitting in here.
But I sincerely doubt anything will be done about it.
>How can he improve /v/?
The best way to improve 4chan would require a somewhat major change to the core functionality. Right now, the site is very strict about what can be posted where. Video game related? Post it in /v/. Anime related? Post it in /a/. And so on, and so forth.
The problem with this system (or how it could be improved) makes itself clear when somebody posts a thread that potentially belongs on multiple boards. If somebody makes a thread about spooky vidya, it makes sense to post that on /v/, but it's also tangentially related to /x/. The problem being, if I'm browsing /x/, especially if I'm interested in video games, I'm not being served all the relevant /x/ related content on the site. This is not an optimal way for users to interact with the site.
The solution is trickier because people have strong opinion about what is and is not "4chan". The solution being, allow threads to signify boards as a sub-category of the thread, and allow those threads to show up on those boards as well. For example, if I made a spooky vidya thread on /v/, I could signify, somewhere, that it was also /x/ related, and then if I was browsing /x/ I could see that thread.
Theoretically, it would also allow for boards to be filtered somewhat to allow for content slightly more catered to the tastes of the person browsing the board. For example, if I'm not interested in /lgbt/ I could add that to a list of boards to filter, then if I was browsing /v/, and somebody made a gaymer thread that attached /lgbt/ as a related board, that thread would be automatically hidden from me, thereby increasing the odds of seeing threads that I am interested in.
There are a lot of minor issues that people have with the site that are solved from this system, but I fear that it is too major to ever be taken seriously. Too bad.
Forced ID tbh
People shitpost because they can samefag.
That's how I feel, but there's a lot of red tape too. The janitors read reports from posters, and then mods read reports from janitors. By the time anything would happen, the thread is 300 posts in and 5 hours old. It's a shitty system and the people running it aren't using it effectively anyway.
Probably for the best. Resident shitposters could be identified more easily, and nobody would take them seriously,
driving them to suicide.
Sorry you can't be some epic troll and get away unbanned anymore
To be fair this is probably the best /v/ has been in recent history.
Shitposting isnt quite as bad as it is on other boards, go to /tv/ if you want to see actual shitposting
/v/ doesn't have some of the shit that mad it horrible these past 4 years. Most of the bullshit like GG spam got purged, threads much like this meta one are staying open alot longer than they used to showing laxer moderation (Im sure someone will throw a fit about this one)
Fuck you couldnt even post Hyderdimension Neptunia a few years back during a summer because of band of autists spammed it so hard it had to be temp banned from the board, along with most everything weeb related.
The worst we have right now is eceleb nonsense and sjw bitching one of which is sorta vidya and the other is more of a website problem.
We dont have as many shitposters
People arent crying about SJWs as much as they used to
Their arent any really bad flavor of the month memes being spammed, the ones right now arent that obnoxious
Console war shit has dropped dramatically compared to just a year ago
People seem to be getting along better and vidya threads seem to be better
Im not the only one who sees this?
hiros intent to actually listen to us and change this place according to it will be the end of 4chan.
so much horrible ideas in this thread alone.
its like wow all over again.
This would fix so much but hiro quite obviously wants /v/ to be the shittest board tbf fammies.
Individual thread ID's.
-Cuts down on samefagging
-Cuts down on shitposting
-Cuts down on falseflagging
-Cuts out marketers completely because they cant samefag
-Does not remove anonymity at all
Seriously, the only people that do not want thread ID's are the ones that are the cause of all the problems, they simply do not wish to be caught being faggots at all intervals. It solves a LOT of the issues /v/ has, hell I personally believe we should have flags as well to sort out which countries need to be range banned. Moot did say most of the shitposting comes from ausfags, why not see if that is the truth?
Oh that is fucking bullshit. I'm not asking them to go through each individual thread down to their hundreds of posts for anything against the rules. I doubt /v/ mods even browse the board since all you'd need to do is just scroll down 3 pages or look at the catalog for threads obviously not videogames like when /tv/ starts making a bane thread or racemixing porn thread or when /pol/ starts making "What's a videogame where I can X" threads where "X" is shit like "be a terrorist, make America great again, be the good guys of WW2"
look into this face and tell me it doesnt want to take video games away from the icky stale pale male gamers
we know you've set up base here since gamergate started
>Im not the only one who sees this?
Yes, you are. Shitposting is still huge. Reddit paranoia is insane. JUST and Frogposting is as awful as could be. Wort of all, it is impossible to tell whether someone is being ironic or not.
>if you just ignore them
You and I may be smart enough to ignore it, but the retard samefagging his post or countless other retards don't and can quickly spiral a thread out of control.
Get a better fucking Captcha system for Christ sake
Do you know how aggravating it is to sit and click on images of bananas only to have them not be the right ones
Ignoring things does not make them go away, especially on 4chan where we all have no lives and force things until people get mad so we can get our lulz. individual thread based user ID's fix faggotry.
Falseflagging isnt "SJW shlling"
I come here daily, most of the time its people pretending to be retarded like they have since this ironic shitposting meme took off years ago and people still fall for it.
What would a SJW gain by "shilling" on a video game board? SJWs want attention to give their cause more legitimacy meaning they arent going to go anonymous they are going to post with a identity. Hence why they use Twitter and Tumblr as their main means of getting their agenda out, its shareable and it has a face to a name.
>he wants to go back to rfflhlhlflrllflrflflff ththtlnbbtbbtlmtbnbm
>it is impossible to tell whether someone is being ironic or not
It's reached the point where a big checkbox for every post to indicate "THIS POST IS A JOKE" would actually be a significant improvement.
1. Do a clean sweep of the entire modteam and bring in a new crew that has no interest in imposing their agenda on a board or creatively interpreting the rules, and most importantly, has no connection with moot.
2. Sound webbums.
3. /om/ board for online media, including youtube, twitch, flash creators, whatever, will cover all e-celebs as well as those mediums.
>they're insufferable faggots though who want everywhere to be the same as that awful fucking site
How are you an expert on this. What concrete evidence can you present that tracks the what sites every poster on 4chan has visited?
It's simple, you can't. You're too new. You clearly weren't here for the original reddit panic and ensuring ironic shitposting fiasco.
ID's is literally just marking which people you should ignore, which you can already do by post content. If people weren't already going to not bite the bait, they will anyway even if the bait is labeled "j89tuj".
>click all the road signs
>all the pictures are signs
Literally nobody does that, and if you do, you can click the webm once and it pauses. It's something that will probably get you banned and isn't worth the effort for how funny it actually is.
they hate /v/ because we blew them out, caused normies to hate progressive lefties and will probably get Trump elected
so they're trying to derail our threads and make the newcomers think we hated gamergate all along, like shitty sjw bait like life is strange etc
I have some irc logs
Then legitimately answer my original question >>313885830
. I'm talking to you as an adult if you want to discuss this seriously then I will engage. If not, then just don't reply.
The fact you have that saved on your computer your just paranoid and fall pray to obvious falseflag shitposting.
In short you are retarded carry on.
Shitposting on /v/ is NOTHING like it is on /tv/ /sp/ hell even /b/ (Just being /b/ doesnt make it not shitposting) /v/ still has a big shitposting problem but for its size compared to the other boards its really not as bad as it used to be
Reddit paranoia is dying down as well, people arent so quick to redirect people to Reddit as they used to be, most of the "Go back to Reddit" image macros arent posted as much either atleast on /v/
JUST posting definatly isnt as big as it used to be its very noticeably died down though Frogposting is pretty bad, though that more of a 4chan problem than just /v/
Its very easy to tell if someone is being ironic, just use common fucking sense
Seriously just fuck off to Reddit m8 you take this shit too serious
I have no idea what you're fucking talking about? You think I'm involved in your argument? No I'm just calling a spade a spade fag
This, all the boards are pretty shit. the only other board I regularly check is /f/, but since it's so so slow I just check all the flashes pretty much once a day, and don't do anything else unless there's a good game, so then I just spend time on here.
>1. Do a clean sweep of the entire modteam and bring in a new crew that has no interest in imposing their agenda on a board or creatively interpreting the rules, and most importantly, has no connection with moot.
Never gonna happen fam cuz the applications are open to 4chinnies.
Make bannable offense Lpers and ecelebs posting.
A PC containment board seems necessary at this point. You literally can't discuss any multiplat without them shitting on it. You literally can't discuss any exclusive without them shitting on it.
ex: They ruined any and all talk about Bloodborne.
It will control things better by faggots being able to be called out or not get away with faggotry. Again, the only ppl that do not want this are the ones causing issues in the first place and mad shills that want to be able to advertise without being called out. You're part of the problem if you don't want a solution, and this is a actual working solution to at least a small plethora of issues /v/ faces. It wont fix all of them but it's a wonderful place to start that WILL work and has worked on other boards. the proof is in application and its already in use in other boards and prevents the very things I've mentioned.
Yes and based on application it can be plainly obvious what people's interests are, especially since the admin can see the applicant's IP posting history. And if they just change IP to one with no history then it will be plainly obvious if they have a bias once their moderation logs are being monitored.
>implying it's not healthy to act like a retard every once in a while in a world where your actions are constantly being judged by your peers and taken seriously, even if they know you're joking
Ban e-celeb shit, should get rid of the underage b&, which also happen to be the biggest shitposters.
Autoban on obvious shitposts like "tbh" "fam" "smh".
Allow light NSFW content.
Actually enforce the rules. /v/ moderation is way too lazy.
Ultimately the best way to improve /v/ would be self moderation, I think coming back to a "sekrit club" mentality is the way to go, the idea is to create some board standards and expect from the newfags/redditors to conform to these standards.
What the fuck are you even on, why would SJWs do anything to get Trump elected when they are the main ones who appose him? Are you autistic? You dont actually believe this shit do you?
Types of threads I would remove:
-e-celeb threads. They are and always will be shit.
-Those stupid "look at this vidya girl's ass!" threads or waifu threads. They are shit.
-Meta threads. Yes I am aware I am participating in one. But they are unhealthy. /q/ was a bad idea and 4chan was forever worse because of it
Explain how it doesn't then mr.madshill/shitposter? even if you think it doesn't its application has already proven to work on other boards that it has it on. So go ahead, provide proof against what's already happened, humor me.
Agreed. Getting rid of PC gamers would eliminate 95% of shitposting. Let them jerk off to framerates and sign petitions somewhere in a corner.
I said this before. But Make dubs a real gamble. Here's how:
1. Leave the default of the board as it is now: without dubs.
2. Create a dubs command for the option field. Something like "check'em". This command will enable your post for dubs.
3. Make fails bannable. If you get dubs, then great! You got dubs. But if you failed to get dubs, then oh no! 1 day ban.
What this will effectively do, is help the board self moderate to a certain extent. Because only shitposting moron try for dubs. And 9 out of 10 of those morons will ban themselves for a day. Even if they just ban evade, at least that shitposter will be slowed down for a little bit.
And you know how everyone sees a successful dub get, and then tries to get their own? 8 out of 10 of those idiots will be banned too.
It would really help the board out a lot.
Because Umaru a shit, you stupid faggot.
>Its very easy to tell if someone is being ironic, just use common fucking sense
this was true but recently i can't really tell if its really ironic shitposting or just this place being filled to the brim with newshits that doesn't bother to lurk.
No, I shall continue.
And this. It would be nice if mods actually replied from time to time even if it includes telling people to stop acting like retards.
We need newfriend filters. Bring back a few waves of .js spam should do the trick.
I still believe that, one day, all boards on 4chan will unite their knowledge and all that they have learned to cure diseases and bring about world peace. 4chan is the key to save humanity.
A screenshot of the actual secret 4chan club
"sekrit club" mentality is already prevalent, but it's often taken too far by the newer users. Hopefully nobody who's been here for more than 3 years actually believes in the Sekrit Club/board culture.
You're providing and obviously through your lack of providing any, have no proof so I'll take it that you acquiesce.
Someone leaked the janitor board. The image had the IRC password and shit.
Dude was dumb and broke the rule RIGHT ON THE IMAGE
He was calling for the jan board to be visible to everyone.
wen u managed to save the cp on time
I am probably being baited I'll leave it at that
Most of /v/ is horny teenagers and young adults it would be porn all the time look how quickly softcore threads get filled now. When /vp/ was first created it was 90% porn for the first 5 days till mods cracked down on it. We have porn boards for this reason make a video game porn board if you want it that bad
Okay which threads would you delete on the catalog right now and explain why.
the fucking /j/ board from when that hacker did the thing.
