Too lazy to read this thread but I'm going to post my opinion anyway.

No, /v/ doesn't need to be split into western/eastern boards. Most people don't give a shit where games come from. Even the threads are made regarding East vs West are nearly always bait threads designed to stir shit. Even the thread linked on qa is clearly that.

The only thing that's going to "fix" /v/ is more mods and janitors so offtopic shit and bait doesn't reach 265 replies before it's taken down (if at all). The only other option is for users people to some self-control and just ignore off-topic and bait threads (which will never happen.

"Eceleb" discussion is perfectly reasonable and within the rules of /v/, it's called secondary content and video game culture, it isn't cancerous, a poll has been done already and the vast majority of /v/ voted against banning those threads.

You can stop being butthurt faggots about them now. If you're unhappy to see e-celeb threads, hide them.

hey, considering pretty much everyone's gonna read this thread
I've posted in my fair share of e-celeb threads before and it's pretty clear this isn't the place to discuss them
why can't we just, like, have a giant skype group to talk about them all instead? it's pretty obvious that most of /v/ hates it when we talk about totalbiscuit or zoe quinn or literally anyone else
it's obviously a topic of conversation that people want to partake in, but 4chan isn't really the place because there aren't enough to justify an /ecl/ board
just gonna put that out there

The point of this type of split is that it's the only one that would result in a 50-50 split. This evenly separates the shitposting. It has nothing to do specifically with japanese or western games.

No, this is the worst possible idea ever. Go the fuck back to Reddit and take your shitty, pussyfoot, non-confrontational moderation strategy with you.

30 days ban is too extreme. It will just drive more people to figure out how to bypass bans.

Bans should hit that sweet spot where people actually dont evade and still feel punished.
>>
Why stop there?

/vw/ will want a split into /ecelebs/ and /gaming/
/jv/ will want a split into /jrpg/ and something next

No, splitting the board down to two cultural origins is pointless and won't help anyone.

Ask for better moderation.

That's a terrible idea. Post count would either not move when they post and thus they'd know they were ghost banned, or post counter does move and all of a sudden threads have a million ghost posts and the counter becomes completely unreliable

Not to mention the fact that rather than encouraging better posting habits, it creates a system that encourages you to not correct poor posting

You want to know how to fix /v/? Stop sperging out at the sight of threads you don't like. Almost all of /v/'s problems come from the people who start shitposting in threads they don't like. If you don't like a thread ignore it and report it if it breaks the rules. Posting in it won't make it go away it will only make it last longer.

No. The solution to fixing /v/'s problems is better and more consistent moderation and enforcement of rules. The only thing splitting up the board has ever done is split up the issue, never fixed it. At worst /v/ and its offshoots have all become containment boards for a different flavor of shitposting, but the shitposting is still there. A /vw/ and /ve/ split will only foster more shitposting if the moderation remains as horrible as it has been.

I have an idea

You know how when you're banned and you try to post, it just takes you to the "you are banned" page? And when the ban expires, it still takes you there but tells you the ban is now lifted?

Well what if you had ghost bans, but it showed you that you were banned for x amount of time by still taking you to the page when the ban is lifted. You'd know you were banned, and why you were banned, but you'd get the benefits of ghost banning as well.

The same goes for thread IDs. It doesn't offer much more than the unique IP count currently does and people determined to samefag can easily bypass it by reseting their router.

The few days after the /vg/ split we had strict moderation and it was probably the best /v/ had been in quite some time.

And then faggots like you bitched and said "muh culture!" and wanted off-topic garbage like 4 AM threads to be allowed again because they were "/v/ culture". So the mods went lax and then that snowballed into more shitposting that got worse and worse every year.

It is not, however, TRUE anonymity. There will forever be a certain flavour to your posts in any given thread. You can't joke around one moment and then a few minutes later pick up some completely different argument or conversation and act like you're a different person. Having actually experienced thread ID's on the other chan, the phenomenon of getting "shitposted at or harrassed or judged later in a thread while taking a debate or conversation seriously because you shitposted earlier for shits and giggles" is very much a thing.

4chan's true anonymity thusfar has had the benefit of avoiding that sort of thing. The benefit of 4chan's true anonymity is that only mods / janitors can tell. You can't be reprimanded or punished by other users holding a grudge. Each post is its own brush stroke, while thread IDs will invariably tint all of your posts a certain colour. People will pick up a trend. It's namefag-lite, and if you post in multiple of the same types of threads, people will be able to recognize you much more quickly, to the point that even if you have a different thread ID, unless you completely change yourself.

Thread IDs in the end will harm the individual, genuine user with the occasional misdemeanor far more than it will harm repeat offenders.

>movie "games"
>bitching about SJWs ruining the industry since Japan does not care for them

>e-celebs
>PKek elitism and Xboneheads

Why the fuck don't you want this board, you morons? A Jap only /v/ could easily be one of the best boards of the site.
>>
>>315344751
That's dumb. Eastern and Western games isn't even a clear distinction. Is Dark Souls an Eastern game just because it was made in Japan? It's still filled with western ideas, game play and motifs, and inevitably will be in both boards. This will happen with any game with even the slightest hint of influence from either the West or East. So why bother dividing /v/ up?

Console /v/ and PC /v/ would make more sense

East vs West is fucking retarded. A better split would be actual video game discussion, and video game "culture." But /v/ has been split enough already, what the board really needs is strict moderation. Or the creation of a celebrity board, which would better like five other boards.

I don't think it would do much.

If I was a newcomer to the MGS series I would think it's a Western game because of all the damn cut scenes and how the characters are modeled.

So I would go post this in the Western board and then get yelled at and bitched at.

I can think of this just happening on both boards creating a bunch of shitposting and not actually discussing the game.

Split /v/ into /v/ hardcore vidya and /vc/ casual vidya.

Then remove retro vidya and have them take their retro games to the respective boards.

There, I just fixed /v/. No more ecelebs, no more halo, dota, skyrim, cod, or other AAA titles and we get to discuss the classics once again(I know you can make threads about it still, but they rarely get much life).

It was influenced by Berserk, which is a Japanese manga. The setting isn't even that similar to WRPGs since they're all Dwarves, Elves and Humans bullshit and the Souls series have none of that.

/v/ was already split with /vp/, which got rid of Pokemon.
/v/ was split again with /vg/, which got rid of long-term threads.
/v/ was split a third time with /vr/, which got rid of games made before 1999.
Every time /v/ is split, more discussion leaves.
The reason /v/ is so bad now is because all the video game discussion is slowly driven away.
All you're doing is encouraging more video game discussion to leave.

>Nintendo threads are hugboxing manchildren while sony threads are quality

Or they both have decent threads when there's no shitposting. It has nothing to do with brand loyalty.

But vp and vr are good and vj would be a bigger board than both of those without all of the SJW and gaming journalism shit.

It would basically be actual /v/ while this shit hole can keep going through retarded cycles like back when everybody wanted to post stupid fucking "video game stories" where they just talked about their lives and that made the mods have to come up with that PRIMARY SECONDARY META shit. Just let faggots shitpost on /b2.0/ and let people who enjoy actual video games from the motherland talk about video games and argue stupid points about them with each other.

We've been over this before.

An ID system faces all the same flaws as the current ban system, and only provides a false sense of security.
Those with dynamic IPs and smartphones (Also see: The biggest shitposters) will simply samefag by using multiple IDs. It can, does, and will happen.

Furthermore, the concept of IDs is counter intuitive to 4chan's nature as a whole, which is why Moot finally removed it from /b/.
IDs are as adept at preventing shitposting as wordfilters are. In otherwords, it doesn't prevent it. At all. The board will suck just as much as it did before, except people won't be able to call the dynamic IPs out on their samefagging anymore.

Your ideas are awful, and you should keep them to yourself. Except for the whole "report this thread" idea, that's a good one.

4chan was founded as a website to post anonymously on.

You need to take a step back and think for a moment on why exactly adding IDs isn't ridiculous given the core premise of the site you're on.

That is the stupidest shit I've ever heard.

Most people can enjoy both Japanese and Western games. There's no reason to split the community cause some people can't handle different opinions.

Pokemon discussion being removed barely changed anything, and has no reason to exist thanks to vg yet it still does for some reason.
and vr is a fucking graveyard, not even kidding.

Not even joking i have you filtered but man , bait or not that is one of the most retarded things i read.

I want another board split. I want a board of weeaboos so /v/ will be more like /a/ or /jp/, two boards that are actually not total shit. Anything shared with people without a weeaboo style Japanese ideology will have a shit board because westerns come into the board and insist it's for whatever the fuck they want and that it's their god given right to talk about whatever they feel like there, even if it's cancer.

In /a/, cancer like Naurto is banned because allowing cancer brings more cancer and lurk more. On /v/, people make dumb arguments like NOT BEING ABLE TO TALK ABOUT VIDEO GAMES ON A VIDEO GAME BOARD! so you it slowly degrades into shit.

This b8 is funny because weebs generally believe it.

>>315346313
Pretty much, and /v/ says it's them that are annoying when all I see are obvious bait/false flagging threads
PCfags kill every fan base they touch
Nintendofags are actual manchildren autist
Xboners are irrelevant
>>
Hiro my man, can we get a sticky with updated /v/ rules, more active moderation, and a limited test run of IDs on the board just to see how things work out with the system implemented?

That's all we'd need to improve this place, and we could even scrap the IDs if they don't immediately improve the board.

But updated rules for /v/, pinned to page 1 with a sticky like most every other board, would be a great first step.

They don't belong on 4chan. They should be removed from /pol/ and /biz/ too.

just what we need

And /v/ has rejected your shit idea.

Now piss off. /Reddit/ awaits.

>>315347001
>But vp and vr are good
/vp/ hasn't been collectively good in years. The infestation of [s4s] doesn't exactly help either.
>>315346992
The thing about /vp/ is, it isn't /mlp/. They aren't banned outside of their board, like newfags like to spam any time people make a Pokemon thread, and they're based off a franchise that's, honestly, stagnated a bit. Combine that with the shit moderation that pretty much killed the "culture" and pushed most users away, /vp/ is a testament of how splitting the board does no good in the long run, or at least it shows that if you're going to make a board, don't fucking abandon it after 2 years then come back not knowing shit about it.

>>315346917

Splitting /v/ into a finite amount of boards is not the same thing as requiring logins and allowing unlimited board creation. I'm not even a proponent of this idea but the constant reddit-calling is fucking delusional
