That's actually a fair point, I hadn't considered that.
That guy always talking about troid is going to add the archives going down to his conspiracy, isn't he? Since it won't scrape deleted posts of his.
He should really stop archiving /v/, I expect more shitposting and console wars than anything worth discussing coming from it. It's one of the fastest boards too so there must be lots of crap.
Someone from /v/ should make its own one if there's anything important to archive.
/v/ermin will throw a fit, but it needs to be done. Everything worth remembering from /v/ is already immortalized in screencaps anyway, they don't need a comprehensive archive.
And if they want one, then one of their own should assume the burden.
I know the timing seems more than coincidental, but rationally speaking I don't see (1) why the archives would only fail to traffic now when the story broke days ago or (2) why the FBI would need to shut down the archives to peruse them. In fact, 4chan still has the original data and has likely handed it over already.
>why the FBI would need to shut down the archives to peruse them.
They don't need to because they have their own archive with PRISM. Anything said on 4chan is logged automatically.
>He's going to keep doing it until it actually goes down.
What's wrong with you OP.
Just the stuff deleted while the fetcher was down, and the stuff pushed off 4chan's archive in that time span.
The old posts are still archived and can be rehosted if it comes to that. The issue right now is that the fetching of posts is down so there will be gaps.
I never even learned how to vote for archival. When I came to 4chan there was already a real archive and people who were trying to enforce on-site archival were laughed out of the board.
Try to define that. You are probably going to run into a wall with your idea of a ban.
Much better to leave it to the discretion of good mods what constitutes shitposting, because that can catch everything or nothing depending on who's in charge.
I always hated that. People would try to show off in the hopes getting into the archive and then shamelessly beg for archive votes. Created a fake, tryhard atmosphere similar to what you see on reddit where people desperately want upvotes and into the gold club.
>But I like reading threads that I couldn't keep track when they were alive because IRL shit.
But that is part of the beauty of 4chan. You need to give up on life to fully enjoy it. Also, every repost is a repost repost. You can literally have the same discussion the next day and probably have the same people replying the very same things.
The archive was going down a lot before the incident happened. It was down even before someone linked the incident with /r9k/.
No so. There are regular manga dumps and live TLs that happen only once a week, if you miss the thread you need the archive to read them. It's that or wait weeks for the chapter to be posted somewhere online.
I for one recycle every good post I make in subsequent threads. It's just a pain to keep track of them when I can't look them up in the archive.
Maybe I should start an offline collection of shit I posted on 4chan.
Yes, that's how I use it too. And I keep around some with nice info or discussions. It's also pretty useful to find some nice rare shit you guys scanned, ripped or translated while I wasn't around.
>No so. There are regular manga dumps and live TLs that happen only once a week, if you miss the thread you need the archive to read them. It's that or wait weeks for the chapter to be posted somewhere online.
People took care of that by manually archiving things. Back when we didn't have archives people saved things locally and uploaded them for others on request.
There's nothing stopping them from doing that right now, yet they don't. If you miss a leak thread you either read the archives or you won't see that content until it's officially released days or sometimes weeks later.
Also I use the archive to find source for shows, manga, and porn. It's an incredibly useful resource. The only problem I have with it is it has all this bloat by archiving boards that don't need an archive.
>The only problem I have with it is it has all this bloat by archiving boards that don't need an archive.
It's the same problem that the NSA has.
How much information is enough information?
Ah fuck it.
Let's just collect it all.
>Also I use the archive to find source for shows, manga, and porn.
Fuck, now if google and yandex fail I won't be able to look in the archive. That sucks.
>There's nothing stopping them from doing that right now, yet they don't. If you miss a leak thread you either read the archives or you won't see that content until it's officially released days or sometimes weeks later.
They don't because of the archive. If there's no archive, people will start saving things again. Once the convenience of the archive is lost, people will cease being lazy and backup things locally again.
I need to go to fucking warosu to look up archived posts from /lit/ yet idiots in charge of moe think it's a good idea to archive boards like /v/.
There is no justice in this world.
>/a/ now hates /v/
Where did the old times go?
Nope, i got there after it already happened so i dont even know the blog name.
And he did the same with the posts on the archive, they got DMCA'd too before the archive went down.
I actually think /a/ hated /v/ the most a few years ago. People used to accuse anyone they didn't like of being from /v/. Nowadays, I don't think people care that much about /v/ any more, while the board might not be overly popular, it's not as hated as back then.
They have their usefulness but I only really liked the archives before they became common knowledge amongst /v/ermin types and people who never lurked.
I used to look forward to /a/ going down because I knew there were be some ghostbros waiting in the archive for what was better discussion of anime and manga than 99% of what we had on 4chan. There was no shitposting there in those days. I've only used the archives a slack handful of times over the years to look up things I wanted to find.
/a/ forgot it's tsundere for /v/ because the tsun was much too big compared to the dere.
Do you have that one haruhi doujin where it's /a/ and /v/ fucking when some other board walks in on them? That was the best edit.
The most impressive thing about /a/ and /v/ is how, although people keep saying that /a/ is turning into /v/, it's actually the opposite taking place. With each passing day, /v/ looks more and more like /a/.
>With each passing day, /v/ looks more and more like /a/.
That would be amazing, if the little board actually managed to breathe quality back into the big one. I don't believe it for a second, but it makes for a nice story.
/v/ has been total shit for years now. It's not a case of forced board rivalry, /v/ is just genuinely garbage and the people who go there are cancer.
/v/ermin are so deep in the cancer they don't even realize how shitty their board is, they honestly still believe /a/ likes them.
>I used the archives to follow the discussion and pretending was watching it with /a/nons
I did this too
>Nobody uses it.
At least I tried.
It might seem funny to think about, but it's the truth. Over the last couple year, the crowd on /v/ that likes "weebshit" games has grown to match the crowd that doesn't, when they used to be a minority. They have drawthreads, waifuthreads, ronerythreads, visual novel discussions, and even outright anime threads sometimes.
So long as you ignore the contant Sm4sh and MGSV threads, the content isn't as bad as people say.
Post it on 4chan, save it immediately with the new filename.
Pretend to be somebody else using your OC.
There are certain threads where people are more likely to save reaction images than others. I haven't quite seen through the pattern yet, but ever since I started posting them where they might be more appreciated my images seem to have been more successful. Or so I tell myself.
in the distant future, scholars will be studying the archives to study the social culture of our time.
I think that's really the saddest part of dying, that we can't have fun reading about future people misunderstanding us.
I very seriously doubt it. The very few tidbits I've seen from recent /v/ indicate it's just as shitty as it has been for the last 5 years. Full of off topic blogging, forced memes, youtube personality discussion, feminist whining, and cancerous shitposting.
Sorry, maybe that was hard to understand for you.
It means that /a/ and /v/'s userbase has a significant overlap. People on /a/ to on /v/ to talk about video games, which isn't surprising. Both mediums go hand-in-hand.
There have already been a few and they all fall way short. This place has a population larger than some countries, so writing a dissertation on it is like trying to sum up a nation in a single paper.
Do people even think of /v/ as a part of 4chan anymore?
At this point, calling terrible posters /v/ermin and telling them to fuck off back to /v/ feels as quaint as calling them /b/tards and telling them to fuck off back to /b/.
No, maybe it's too hard to understand for you.
The nominal topic (anime/manga vs video games) is not the important difference between /a/ and /v/.
What's important is the posting style, the way that people treat each other, the way the nominal topic is treated and stuff like that.
/a/ is good at this. /v/ is not.
>>It means that /a/ and /v/'s userbase has a significant overlap
No it doesn't.
>People on /a/ to on /v/ to talk about video games
No they don't. I've been playing video games since I was 10, and I don't fucking talk about them on /v/ because /v/ is cancer. I do, however, visit /vg/ sometimes because of guides and mod info posted in relevant threads. That's as close as I get to visiting /v/ for video game "discussion".
If you seriously think everybody who posts about anime visits /a/ on this site you are gravely mistaken. Try visiting /wsg/ sometime, stop by the anime threads and see how many of them claim to hate /a/ and never come here.
it's so scary to think that the stories of Gaius and Aulus are forever lost in time, and similarly, so many other stories just gone.
The reason why discussion of /a/ related stuff is on the rise on /v/ is because with the increasing shift between the two boards /v/ermin can no longer comfortably discuss their favorite anime on /a/. They need to either lurk a bit (which they aren't used to at all) or talk about it on /v/ (which is easy because /v/ is off topic anyway).
/v/ discussing anime related stuff is proof that /v/ continues to fail.

>Your waifu a shit, if she was real she would think you are gross.
>Fuck you, faggot. My waifu is pure.
>Yet she loves BBC, you are a cuck.
I completely disagree. /a/ is just as shitty in many regards. On /v/ you have a lot of variation depending on the topic. In threads discussing old PC RPGs for example /v/ far surpasses the average thread on /a/, while a thread discussing some modern AAA shit is likely to be far worse than /a/ ever gets.
I still stand by the opinion that more popular boards should have longer reply timers. This potentially -- and yes, only potentially -- will make people think harder about what to post, if they can only post every three minutes. It also gives the jans and mods more time to clean up the trash.
Pic obviously unrelated.
Does /b/ not allow tripcodes?
Also, measing thepost quality by the number of tbh smh fams is pretty clever. I support this. Now if only it could count the number of pepes posted.
>I completely disagree.
And I don't care about your opinion. What I see of /v/ from here in screenshots and in crosssboarders suffices to make me completely disinterested in the board as a whole.
I'd welcome their collective banishment from 4chan if such a thing were possible. 4chan needs a place to discuss video games, but /v/ isn't it.
Actually, if we look at hachichan, we see that their /v/ is a lot bigger than /a/ and other boards barring /pol/ and /b/. /v/ crossboards a lot with /pol/, not with /a/.
We can't tell from that what board has the biggest crossboarding with /a/ but I would put my money on /sp/, if I had to, based on some poor evidence.
And I stand by the opinion that the official catalog and the archives are a mistake and should be deleted, that unofficial catalogs like neet.tv and archives like archive.moe should be ddosed to death, that post timer and captcha should both be removed and people who get infected by viruses that spam should be permanently banned for stupidity, that non-weeb boards should all be deleted and anyone who hasn't made at least ten posts on /a/ (or /m/ or /jp/ or a combination of three boards) in the last month should be permanently IP banned, and that bump limit should be reduced to 150 posts at most. Oh, and the native extension should be shut down and the unofficial ones should be somehow disabled as well.
Who's with me, fellas?
Maybe we should ask if they could share their archive with us.
I know, but I don't really think Hiro knows how to unlist a board. /aco/ remained unlisted for more than four hours.
You are all fucking retarded if you think /a/ is better than /v/. The shitposting here makes souls threads look tame, at times.
With that said, they should probably stop archiving images from /v/. God knows it wouldn't be a huge loss.
/qa/ and /q/ are not fucking useful. They are literally cancer whose sole existence is to be a gateway for shitposters and troll to invade other boards.
/q/ was fine the first week but everybody knows how that turned out, didn't it? I swear, the moment people are given the chance to bitch and moan so they can fuck everything up, they'll take that chance.
I think threads are currently getting too long. Like, there's huge amounts of threads that just die with almost no discussion and others that won't die for days. It seems to be too polarized.
Deleting /pol/ would destroy 4chan, it's too big now.
/a/ is better than /v/, it's not even debatable. /v/ is about youtube celebrities, food, and whatever topic you can get angry about. Oh, and unfunny comics.
Bitch, it's not even close.
/a/ - Produced Katawa Shoujo and made the Little Witch Academia Kickstarter possible.
/b/ - Produced Chanology and the Fappening.
/r9k/ - Produced Beta Uprising.
/v/ - Produced Gamergate.
/co/ - Produced Bronies.
>Deleting /pol/ would destroy 4chan, it's too big now.
/pol/ really isn't anywhere near as big deal as some people imagine it to be.
Remember when moot got mad at that board, removed the post timer, put a bunch of wordfilters and told the entire site to raid it?
/pol/'s response to that was absolutely pathetic. They couldn't do shit for months.
From what I hear, they tried to retaliate by taking over /mlp/ and failed miserably, couldn't even beat a bunch of literal horsefuckers.
I don't think /pol/ should be deleted, but /pol/ is really a non-issue in the larger scheme of things. If it was deleted and if mods were told to be a bit more vigilant (like they were on /v/ for like a week after the /v/-/vg/ split), I'm absolutely certain 99% of /pol/luters would leave the site and never come back.
It's absolutely debatable. I just did it. This board is just as shit as the others and so is your waifu.
No, it isn't. It's us, not them. They have their own board to shit up, and we have ours. The people we've been posting with for years are completely retarded, and we all need to accept this before things can start to improve.
I'll give you Little Witch Academia, but since when was Katawa Shoujo a plus?
>unofficial ones should be somehow disabled as well.
4chanX is love, 4chanX is live. I don't want to go back to a 4chan where I can't easily filter tripfags.
I turn my filters off in meta threads.
>What I see of /v/ from here in screenshots and in crosssboarders suffices to make me completely disinterested in the board as a whole.
People say the exact same thing about /a/, usually because they have casual shit taste and can't deal with people calling their favourite shows shit. Who tells me you're not the exact same type of person?
>I'd welcome their collective banishment from 4chan if such a thing were possible. 4chan needs a place to discuss video games, but /v/ isn't it.
/v/ is the best place to discuss video games on the internet, just like /a/ is the best place to discuss anime. The fact that the boards are shit is a result of the medium, not the boards. No matter what board discusses video games, it will always be shit.
It has more to do with /pol/ being so shit that most of them didn't even care.
It's not about /pol/ "raiding" the site if they get screwed over anyway. It's that without a /pol/ containment board then /pol/ will naturally creep into every single board, most notoriously /b/ which would turn into the de-facto containment board, and god knows that's a combination that nobody wants on this site.
>The fact that the boards are shit is a result of the medium, not the boards. No matter what board discusses video games, it will always be shit.
Are you one of those people that say that /a/ doesn't like anime?
The problem with the boards are entirely the users. Some anime can be bad, but shitposting and retardation are not their fault.
>usually because they have casual shit taste and can't deal with people calling their favourite shows shit.
>Who tells me you're not the exact same type of person?
Because to me it's not what they like or dislike, it's how they discuss it and what they find funny.
>/v/ is the best place to discuss video games on the internet,
No, it isn't. I'd argue if it's a place to discuss video games at all.
>The problem with the boards are entirely the users.
The issue is: no matter where you put the board, you'll always have the same types of users, simply because anime and video games appeals to a certain type of people.
>Because to me it's not what they like or dislike, it's how they discuss it and what they find funny.
That may have something to do with you having shit taste in video games and thus the threads about the games you like being shit.
The quality of the threads on /v/ is directly proportional to the quality of the game.
>No, it isn't. I'd argue if it's a place to discuss video games at all.
Yes, it is, though you probably prefer places like /reddit/ or so to discuss your games.
Have been filtering stuff for quite some time now and it never feels like I'm missing something.
But everybody is free to enjoy the posts from idiots who are just too important to post anonymously or retards running around spamming the latest "funny meme".
I thought it was because of the sheer amount of people across the world trying to find out shit about the shooting and overloading it.
Even a newspaper in New Zealand freaked out and screencapped a false threat they found on foolz.
/v/ is honestly much better these days than 09-12, if nothing but because all of the threads are generally on-topic now. E-celeb and anti-sjw tantrum are still massive problems but current /v/ is a massive improvement over a period when the entire front page was LoL and Starcraft generals, a problem plaguing /a/ at the moment.
>Which would be patently untrue because you can discuss every anime here if you do it right.
The same is true for /v/ in regards to video games. If you discuss good games you can have good discussions.
This entire mess started with the deletion of /new/ or perhaps it was the creation of it. The point is since then a plague was unleashed that no matter how hard the staff tried; they never quite managed to contain it even with /pol/. Deleting /pol/ will just be opening Pandora's Box again but this time even worse.
There is nothing wrong with /pol/ they are more often on topic and civil than /v/ is so why shouldn't that board be deleted as well? Stupid shit like R9K should be deleted it's a joke board that has long run its course.
Many of the people crying about how bad /a/ is are just kids that got mad that their recommendation thread didn't went as they expected or because they get triggered by cute girls.
OreGairu generals filling up the board when the second season was airing were horrible. What's worse is that there are still generals even now.
/v/ is shit for several reasons. Just to name a few:
>higher levels of normalfaggotry
>turned into a warzone for /pol/ and tumblr
>authenticity of the discussion compromised by the presence of actual paid shills
>furries and other undesirable elements
>groupthink fucking everywhere
The closest thing /a/ gets to /pol/ content is the latest "JAPAN/ANIME/LOLI IS DOOMED" scare article, the response to which is usually reasonable. The only actual problem with /a/ lately is the high levels of crossboarder activity (because of anime becoming trendy in the west), and psuedo-generals being held for ongoing shows. Unfortunately there's not much to do about either other than hoping anime fades back into irrelevancy in the west and faggots stop trying to turn anime into a fad.
Mods go on full alert deleting their shit until they leave like the gamergaters.
Make a retro anime board. (there is a retro video games board much better than /v/)
Let seasonal fags wallow in their shit and bitch about /v/ while patricians discuss good anime.
There, 4chan is fixed.
How do you not know about the Oregon Shooting? People across the world know about it.
Here's a Taiwanese summary of it to get you up to speed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDiOmviCq3U
The problem is not if they're all there. The problem is that they're no longer interested in discussing the anime so much as talking about random shit, dumping images and generally making shit threads.
There's nothing pseudo about those fucking Overlord threads.
>literal role-playing, fan-fiction writing, meme-spouting retards
>groupthink fucking everywhere
Because this isn't the case here, when you have people shouting Boku no Pico at someone asking sauce for a page that turns up nothing in every single reverse-search engine.
>still crying no one wanted to discuss the old show you watched that has been talked about a million times
How big of a baby are you if you make an interesting topic you can talk about any anime on /a/.
Yeah, not spoonfeeding people is a terrible crime.
Especially if it's about stuff they would know if they had just lurked for 2 weeks.
It's like people don't want to have complete newfags running around.
And we're back.
That would only fill other boards with frogs and people bitching.
The secretest club.
NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN
I had to watch anime all alone and it was horrible
I went to >>131879051 and other archive sites. /pol/ and /sp/ were the only with ghost post.
>Produced Katawa Shoujo
>made the Little Witch Academia Kickstarter possible
Gold mine of celebrity nudes. Only positive on this list of yours.
>Produced Beta Uprising
All I'm getting from your post is that this site is a breeding ground for autism.
I don't see much point in doing that with /b/, the more unusuable it is the better in my opinion to keep off the newbies who start there, but I think something like that would do /v/ a world of good.
He sold out and started working for jewcob.
There are also signs he is at least partially responsible for the DMCAs and purges on panda threads, as they happen shortly before or after he starts posting.
Was downloading the translated Boogiepop novels while listening the OST. Those torrent could do with more seeders, might just have to cheat my way into a usenet trial again for this.
Don't forget more consistent release of content to talk about. There's a reason why transition between season is so much more noticeably worse compared to every other timeframe.
>literal role-playing, fan-fiction writing, meme-spouting retards
Same thing happened to Monster Musume threads when the anime started airing. Maybe it's a new wave of people that came in during the summer?
Do Overlord threads also have a guy that advertises their merchandise and defends it by saying it's not a problem because people buy it?

>Maybe it's a new wave of people that came in during the summer?
No, it's a bunch of people in a thread without a topic. It's the reason why empty bumping should be against the rules. When a conversation is over, it should end.
I've had plenty of good discussions on /v/. If you don't have shit taste in games then you'll have good discussions simply because the games don't appeal to a shitty audience.
/v/'s quality is directly proportional to your taste in video games.
We have mods who defend nurutu and tumblr.
People on /a/ are generally a lot more helpful when it comes to video games too. You can have these "friendly" types of discussions on any board with any topic. People will always be more relaxed then.
Drug related characters like Yakui, TCC-tan and Bikko were quite popular there even after they lost the anime boards, though
So, should we have an official backup chan in case this hellhole goes down for good? If 4chan were to go for a couple months i think we could move enough of the userbase permanently to another chan and never have to deal with the other boards again.
/m/ and /jp/ could come, and maybe kinomod could come to if he feels like it.
This is a big reason.
When /v/ hit the bottom of the barrel, around 2010 - 2012, there were no good releases around.
On /a/, you get something to watch every season, while when it comes to video games there are occasionally long periods where nothing worthwhile is released, which naturally then drives the board into off-topic bullshit.
>Good titles can have shitty fans.
A sophisticated enough game will have a reasonably articulate fanbase and the discussions will be good.
I've yet to see a bad discussion about either games; or games that are alike.
/v/ is only bad if you like mainstream shit that appeals to casuals.
The idea that /a/ is a bad place for anime recommendations is only common among newfags anyway. You just aren't supposed to make a shit thread asking to be spoonfed. You are supposed to follow our rules. You'll get plenty of suggestions on what to watch next if you do that.
We also have Kinomod and our janitors are generally not retarded, though there aren't enough janitors.
Those handful of reddit/tumblr mods do retarded shit a lot of the time, that's true, but almost always our moderation is fucking great compared to the rest of this site.
>I've yet to see a bad discussion about either games
In fact, I've seen hundreds. Not on /v/, because I don't frequent that place, but elsewhere.
Good games don't make good fans.
jkid is yotsuba society.
I've talked to him before on IRC, but I'm not certainly jkid.
I'm mildly disappointed you don't know about my spreadsheet, but it can't be helped.
So much this.
Getting recommendations from /a/ is piss easy. Discussing old shows with /a/ is piss easy.
You just need to be smart about it and not post like an obnoxious braindead fucktard.
>it was originally made by woxxy
No it wasn't. Woxxy took over from Eksopl, who in turn took over from the original developer of the fuuka archiver engine. It went like this:
Chanarchive (2006-2013) --> The /a/rchive (2007) --> Easymodo (Eksopl, 2008) --> Green-Oval (2010) --> Back to Easymodo (2011) --> Foolz (Woxxy, late 2011) --> Archive.moe (various, 2014)
If we're talking about the recent years, kickstarter has delivered quite a bit. Shadowrun: Dragonfall for example, Divinity: OS and right now I'm enjoying Unity of Command.
Also, I don't think I'll go "back" to /v/. Like most people who aren't newfags I've been browsing both /a/ and /v/ for nearly a decade.
If there is a board other than /jp/ that could pull it off, it's /a/.
Besides, between all the ERP networks from the subtle circlejerks there is probably an anon network already, we could spread the word in the different notepads, project groups, etc.
With having 1/3 of the userbase of /a/ we could have a fully viable chan, we could avoid the mistake of making boards for normalfags, wait a while to see if the population becomes stable and maybe even add a /v/ and /b/ that are heavily moderated.
The onyl way of moving /a/ with the strongly fixed roots we have is knowing that there is a secondary /a/ everyone is "supposed" to go and then nuking 4chan ourselves for a while.
i wouldn't mind ddosing the shit out of 4chan for a month or two to put this into effect if one ever comes up, i've long considered /a/ to be the soul of the 4chan i grew up in anyway
>"It was all us, we were the only ones! No one else knew about it but us!"
Any /a/ that isn't boards.4chan.org/a/ isn't /a/, and assuming you had the money and time to host and moderate a chan, how would it be different from any of the plethora of other spinoff chans out there?
>he wasn't aware the goal was met as soon as a sticky of the KS was posted on /a/
>the rest of the stretch goals was actually donated after the fact, when /a/ already got the bulk initial goal
Be new somewhere else. I bet you didn't even know about the sticky.
>How do you know what /v/ is like then you giant retard?
Would you please pay attention to what we are arguing about? I am dismantling your No-True-Scotsman.
Good titles don't make good discussions. Lesser known (old) titles make threads with less newfags barging in with memes.
Baldur's Gate is not so much retard-immune as it is 15 fucking years old. Kids nowadays are all about recent games.
That's all that it is.
What other boards do you go then crossboarder?
I don't give a shit about "4chan", i only care about /a/. The rest of those normalfag retards can go die, the only people i enjoy talking with outside /a/ in 4chan always turn out to be /a/nons that want to discuss non anime stuff too.
Let me guess. You only knew about the KS after it was already funded.
Most likely the drives are gone, reclaimed, failed etc by now.
considering the sheer amount of data involved I doubt that would be possible without the help of something like archiveteam.
I don't have the time or money, even if i did start this i'd pass the baton to someone more worthy in a heartbeat.
4Chan has been 4 websites crammed into one for a long time, i have the hope one day /a/ can become it's own website, it has been in a sense for years now, every time something in the other boards happens you take months to know about it, /a/ hasn't participated in any kind of intraboard activity in a while either.
Every person that becomes a regular here slowly morphs into our mentality too
didn't download the thumbnail batch, just the text thumbnail was too big for me at the time, also was worried about cp being in some of the thumbnails didn't want to deal with that
>/a/ hasn't participated in any kind of intraboard activity in a while either.
They where in a 4Chan Babby cup less than 6 months ago, and there was quite a bit of activity in the threads.
That's how things were supposed to be, 4chan has drifted too far from anime and manga.
Because wanting to talk to people who share similar interests is so bad?
>4Chan has been 4 websites crammed into one for a long time
No, it hasn't.
>i have the hope one day /a/ can become it's own website
You are a complete idiot that is the literal definition of autistic, and not even the psychological diagnosis type.
>Every person that becomes a regular here slowly morphs into our mentality too
>wanting to be a hivemind
>not just projecting
Keep on deluding yourself.
>says the crossboarder while having terrible grammar
I told you, make a board, get enough people on board and gently spam it for a while, not like those retards at 8gag, just let ppl know in case /a/ goes down we should go to this chan, then nuke the shit out of 4chan for a few months.
Again, i habe neither the money nor the technical skills to run a site.
i'd follow kinomod to death if he did this though
>literal definition of autistic, and not even the psychological diagnosis type
Holy shit, you idiots are full of yourselves.
You're not having much of whatever you consider to be "good discussion" then. Also Shadowrun has pretty stale game play and Div:OS is plagued by a really boring storyline, I have no idea about Unity of Command.
Seems to be pretty hard to sustain that non"shit-taste" of yours these days.
And most people who aren't newfags aren't able to stomach what /v/ is today and has been for a long time now.
>literal definition of autistic, and not even the psychological diagnosis type.
I think you are retarded anon, what boards do you visit other than /a/?
I rarely leave /a/, other boards are too shit.
If you want an example, the 8gag /a/ is a wasteland, barely a few people went there. /a/ is too disociated
/jp/ was there too and they are like /a/ on steroids crossboarder, every time someone says hi, im from / x /, he gets shitposted to death and banned, like they should.
I just want archive.moe to work, I don't care about 4chan.
>not knowing Engilsh on an American imageboard
Not him, but I expect everybody to at least try.
When there is no punctuation or capitalization you can tell that the guy didn't care what his post looks like.
Also, is it just me or has "Why [subject] [verb] [object]?" turned into a kind of meme? It's way too common to be just some random mistake.
Well then, until you acclimate to /a/ board culture eat shit, your opinion is invalid and won't be taken seriously even if you continue posting for a while like you probably will. You people always give up after a while anyway.
Are there seriously people who only visit one board? Even moot said it was not supposed to be that way and that boards should keep relationship with each other
No other board is as paranoid about this except /jp/ and /tv/
I wonder what Eksopl is doing these days.
This. If someone makes an innocent grammar mistake that's not a big deal, but you should at least make the effort to use proper capitalization and punctuation. This isn't a fucking chatroom.
When people say crossboarder they don't mean somebody who posts on different boards.
They mean somebody who posts on different boards and thinks the same kind of attitude works on all of them.
I bet you don't know any language except English fags.
Also, grammar nazism is stupid, if you are sable to disregard someone's point just of some irrelevant shit and not actual argument because of then you have autism.
I'm not going to go troll through posts on other boards and anime sites from two years ago just to prove a point.
You're delusional if you think /a/ is solely responsible for funding it. Sure, I imagine a good share of it came from /a/nons, but all of it? You're retarded.
Whats your point? 4chan is for fun, believe it or not; this isn't a public policy forum where intellectual incest is a concern. The reason tumblr is criticized as a hugbox is precisely because they discuss things like politics and social issues in their hugbox.
I don't care if you go to other boards as long as you leave their shit culture over there. I have lost count of how many times i've heard "i go to this board to shitpost but not on /a/"
I personally go to /vg/, /tg/, /co/ sometimes and /mu/, but /a/ gets /a/ culture, i'f never bring shit i seet here here, even more when everyday i can see where the other road leads too.
/tg/'s glorious days are long over, nowadays everything is sterilized and the only things left are self-contained quest threads and generals, the magic that made the board fun is no where to be found.
Funny enough, that's how I feel about modern /a/.
Anon you are anonymous so no one is going to know you post on the boards, but if you are going to bring shit from other boards here or act like a retard, then expect people will call you out on it.
They probably died because of the /r9k/ shooter and everyone trying to find that post.
>When people say crossboarder they don't mean somebody who posts on different boards.
That's literally what a "crossboarder" is, idiot. And people very clearly don't want you here if you give the slightest implication that you browse other boards.
Du Missgestalt, es will niemand die Auswuchse von nem lernbehinderten 12-Jahrigen lesen.
Wenn jemand nicht in der Lage ist sich vernunftig auszudrucken soll er woanders hingehen und wenn du so sehr um Toleranz fur jeden Idioten bemuht bist, dann wirst du vermutlich auch woanders glucklicher.
Why not get rid of 4chan in general. All those people that have killed a human being over the years. I bet a good amount of them did browse 4chan. Even /a/. Why not get rid off /a/? What about that guy from /b/ that went to Pakistan with a sword in order to kill Osama? Shut it all down.
>Itps interestign how /a/ is the only board that manages to resist /tv/ /v/ and /pol/ps shit memes (JUST, cuck, tbh, fam, Bane and SJW)
What board are you browsing?
Oh, the one that's filled with shitty, circlejerk general threads that you can hide in and give you a warped perspective of the board's general ethos.
Since everybody is throwing autism accusations around right now I'll have a go at it as well:
>well not every single cent came from /a/, so what you said is totally and completely wrong
Except for baneposting and moaning about SJWs, all this shit gets posted on /a/ fairly regularly. And SJW mentions are only rare because anime just isn' affected by their shit most of the time (thank god). You should've seen the shitstorm caused by the Prison School dub. Thinking about it, even baneposting is not all that rare.
There is always the redirect or two, but the only time there is a violent response is when you break one of ours 400 unwritten rules you should know if you lurked, or when you post in a way that either feels "wrong" or people that use other boards recognize.
Maybe you disagree, but /a/ behaves like it is a different website, people that come from other boards are as newfags to me as a retard from tumblr or reddit or whatever, just a little more accustomed to anonymity, maybe.
If mods actually banned the people for doing that shit we would be more successful. As it stands though /a/ is one of the few boards that calls people out for saying the "tbh", "fam", etc crap. I just hope it keeps it up as it at least helps to cut that shit down.
Yes, it is. That's what it refers to. You can't just make up your own bullshit definitions.
>People give a shit because those boards that they come from are shit and don't want this board to become any worse.
That's irrelevant. People here shit on you if they think you're from another board, regardless of if you're shitposting or not. We're not debating the reason they do so, or whether or not it's justified.
It's quite easy, a crossboarder is a browser of other board that hasn't been broken in to /a/ board culture, since once you have been you tend to change quite a bit in how you behave in 4chan.
Someone could browse all the boards here and still be an /a/non if he follows the rules set by the community, knows his shit and understand the importance of carrying his own weight (no recs or sauce)
Shitty localization in general, yes, but there was also a lot of anger about that specific SJW shithead who did it dragging his political agenda into works where it doesn't even remotely belong
There is far less of all that garbage on /a/ than there is on other boards and it usually gets deleted/banned if the mods aren't asleep (they have been sleeping a lot lately). Another difference is that you'll get insulted for posting like a retard on /a/ whereas other boards simply accept/ignore it.
How can you even pretend that /a/ is just as bad as other boards in that regard?
