Everyone knows it. /b/ is shit because of all the repetition, this repetition is present legitimately everywhere on this board. From loli, to traps, to webm porn, to faces of /b/, and the list goes on. And on. And on. And on.
Even if you particularly love some of the things listed above, you cannot deny that seeing them over and over every single day ad infinitum is annoying & cancerous. So what do we need to combat this? An anti-cancer mascot. We have the YLYL banana to combat the shitty tidal wave of repetitious YLYL threads where, on a good day, you might find one or two pictures you haven't seen before. We have spiderman, the sound booth cringe faggot, the Banana, all this type of shit to combat singular things people dislike on this board but what we truly need is a broad mascot that will allow us to snuff out the repetition on /b/.
In this thread, we will be discussing the potential candidates for our Anti-Cancer Mascot. Before we do anything, though, we need to understand that "cancer" is inherently subjective. Just because you, or even me the faggot OP dislikes something like let's say "Faces of /b/" threads doesn't mean that "Faces of /b/" threads are a bad thing. We have to understand that no matter what this anti-cancer Mascot will be used against at least SOME of the things we enjoy. Your job is to not be so much of a faggot that you can't sacrifice one or two of your ebin "faces of /b/" threads for the good of the entire board.
tl;dr Lets take some initiative to actually do something for our own good this time.
Another thing, if you anons think it would be more efficient, we can just say fuck the whole mascot thing and simply begin flooding cancerous threads with gore.
It'd be less effective due to the fact that some people wouldn't be inclined to saving copious amounts of gore, but, it would definitely be a way to say fuck off to the newfags.
You are cancer. I am cancer.
We all cancer now.
If we just sit down with a defeatist attitude saying shit like "/b/ was never good" all we do is just keep getting worse. The fact that you are still here to post what you just did, and me to post this thread, shows that /b/ has at least some redeeming qualities left.
All we can do is work to preserve what is left and build up for the future. Why not start sooner than later?
the problem with this is, that repetition will always be a part of communitys.
see it as a trend, it comes and goes, eventually coming back.
what we need are new formats. fresh content. i mean, let's say we wipe the repetition out, causing loli, traps, faces, fur to occur much lesser.
what else will be left then? since b is random, we won't have anything left. so instead of fighting repetition, we need new formats and fresh content to post and discuss, which will be repeated instead. that cycle will continue then
tl;dr: don't fight the trends, controll them
Remember shrek posting guys? It was a good time. What the fuck have now? Banana threads, daily porn/trap threads and other crap
But i can't get traps anywhere else, anon.
dude you can hope all you wont but there's no way you can battle the hordes of faggotry pouring into this place. it's just too much to handle. even if you successfully flood 1 or 2 or 3 cancerous threads to extinction they will just pop up again 30 mins later.
if what this place is, isn't enough for you to enjoy yourself anymore all you can really do is migrate to another, small chan. but pretty much all they do it talk about how much 4chan sucks. except /baphomet/. only doxx there.
It was atleast funny to some of us. There is literally nothing funny or interesting about this board anymore
Back to the issue at hand guys, what do you think is annoying enough to buttfluster faggots posting in terrible threads?
Anything. Just suggest some stuff & start spitballing points
Yeah, i'm not.
You see, porn is not the problem, the quality of the content is.
There's always porn, no matter what the genre in this board.
What i really dislike, are the banana threads and YLYL shit. Also, rate my dick threads.
I have no issue with traps, though I don't really "like" them.
My point is that with something to flood shit threads with, you'll always find a type of thread you love getting flooded. That's just common sense. Not only that, but that's far in the future anyways. Hell this thread is likely to birth nothing but a 10 minute discussion. But you bet your ass I'll keep trying.
have fun reminiscing about how good things used to be while I actually try to do something about bringing it back, you nigger.
You just don't get it, do you, OP - the "repetition" as you call it is the soul and heart that is now /b/, that is THE grand GOOF and a SPOOF
it's "the joke" as they say
now tits or gtfo
There will always be shit threads, there was before.. there is now... and there will be in the future! The only difference is before there was acc a few good threads to go to with OC, now we have nothing
>implying loli is cancer
This place won't ever change, trap threads are full of obnoxious smiley using niggers.
YLYL threads have become cancer because all the good laugh material is held up in some oldfags vault of goodies, all we get now is 9fag tier comedy.
I see nothing wrong with webm porn, just that most phones can't play them.
The real cancer of this place are the insufferable 14 year olds that think coming here makes them cool kids, the ones who call everyone edgy and whiteknight camwhores.
Then there's the copypasta, John, Navy Seal(Sometimes), the "Rate me", "Ask a ____ anything.", Dubs are back, which brings cancer I long thought dead. Undelivering OPs to "le funny maymay xD" kids, this entire place is cancer.
>tl;dr: shitposting loudly and there's nothing you can do
I don't even think Loli is cancer, but as I said, cancer is subjective.
I for one am fully for fighting multiple forms of cancer with one form of cancer. You're gaining more than you lose.
we never really try, if someone tries to plan a raid, all anons dont even try they complain about moderation, the complain saying it wont work cause /b/ is shit, and overall say how abd /b/ has become and only raids could be done with the old /b/
so maybe if anons acc fuck up and do something we might acc be able to do a successful raid
the reason there are always trap and gay threads is because most people are bisexual and we are living in a time where people are finally realizing it and admitting it
>implying there isn't a fuckton of cross dresser porn on the internet
>inb4 traps are different from cross dressers
Let's just throw bananas into every thread that sucks cock, like trap threads.
SO GENERATE SOME FUCKING OC
YOU FAGGOTS DON'T REALIZE HALF THE ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE CAN GENERATE AMAZING OC.
GO OUT FIND A LIZARD AND ACTUALLY DELIVER WHEN PEOPLE ROLL YOUR GIVEN NUMBER.
DO SOME INSANE SHIT AND RECORD IT.
>implying /b/ wasn't fun 6 years ago
im a newfag i wasnt here to see the keks /b/ has produced, im just saying the way i see things..
Just deliver, suggest raids, make copypastas, just bring random shit to the bored and let fellow anons make it evolve into something funny
Exactly, that's all we need to do.
Fuck man, if all the people in this thread alone did some funny shit it would help /b/ significantly. One good thread can become /b/ history forever.
All OC is immediately considered forced memery and cancer. The only time we get anything new here is when there is ACTUAL forced cancer memes
a fucking 8 chan raid turned into a god damn forced meme literally overnight.
/b/ is filled with 14 year olds now who only like homosexuality, le 9gog memes, and rating each other's faces
>check out my forced memery
also look at the news, something tragic happened? make a thread, post the link and let the anons laugh at it, hopefully memes will be made, or famous phrases will be born from it
The banana stands for burning off the cancer, it got to the point where it amused me, pissed me off, bored me to no end and then was fucking halirious again
We need to cut the wew out though
Anonymous is a pretty solid example of how /b/ as a whole has gone to shit.
>started for the lulz fucking with people and making /b/ known for being the funniest thing on the internet
>turned into 14 year old keyboard SJWs wearing masks at their desktops
/b/ is pretty much the same except instead of being full of SJWs it's just full of homos jerking off to cross dressers.
post some ideas for oc and formats.
>frequently start a thread like this to gather inspiration.
>discuss tragedys, provoke laughter.
>raids are always gud, just plan them through before and try your best
I'm with you on this. I'm not a regular /b/ browser simply because it's just boring now. The same old "check em XD" or "rate muh dick /b/" nobody gives a fuck about your fucking dick faggot threads I mean why does that shit even get replies.
youre mascot is just going to be more spam though
Why dont we do something really crazy for once
like fucking really insane. Lets help spergs learn to be new people. Think about it. If your so fucking smart and the site is cancer, then take the reigns. Start teaching us all how to be as cool as you, tough guy
Did anyone here see the anon that was doing the BUUGS thing from starship troopers. Atmitedly it was on a ylyl thread but it was the first time in fucking months i laughed that hard.
My vote is buugs
Or you can stop being an edgy faggot and realize I'm just trying to find ways to help /b/ become a better place.
Like I said before, if you aren't willing to let 1 faggoty meme be a catalyst to shitting on a wave of other faggoty memes then you just aren't weighing the pros and cons of the situation.
There doesn't need to be any specific thing you choose to spam with. If you see a shitty thread like a 5th trap thread up on the fucking front page just spam it with anything unrelated to traps. If you see your 1000th YLYL thread of the day just spam it with any of the many spammable cancers we already have. If you see a rate thread just call every 3rd person on there a faggot over and over again. Just keep shitting up the threads that shit up the board until the faggot mods make them their own boards or something. We don't have to agree that we can only use bananas in YLYL or something dumb like that.
But if we just do that it causes no impact. It's just a random faggot spamming shit. If we have a particular anti cancer mascot it will be impactful and show a particular message, no?
I was on the banana thread when it was created...
I saw on /v/ the "cuck" being born too.
>what word shall we use next year?
>let's use cuck, sounds good
Everyone is trying to create memes all the time, this is the sole purpose of this board right now. We can only hope for the old /b/
Sums up much of /b/ for the past several years now.
But OP, if you say that "cancer" is inherently subjective, how do we know what threads to flood with gore?
People too afraid to change anything. Then people like you encourage them to do the same shit more because it makes you mad and they think that is trolling. Just ignore them you dumb nigger, no one will shit post for long if they have no feedback.
1. /b/ is not /r/ do not request here
2. if you lost you gore / spiderman / etc. folder it's not /b/'s job to replace - lurk moar until you replace it yourself
3. fighting cancer with cancer only produces moar cancer - moar threads will be made
4. rules of the internet still apply i.e. lurk moar, the more you hate the stronger it gets, tits or GTFO the choice is yours, don't argue with trolls, etc. - read them newfags http://rulesoftheinternet.com/index.php?title=Main_Page
