what has happened?
slow board and tripfagging drama
more traffic, more posters, lots of laughs, early goth shit
even more traffic, more laughs, with actual wisdom being dropped
extreme shitposting and off-topic shit, australian cancer, lean cancer, meme shit greatly outweighing discussion
posters asking the most stupid of questions.
these 2015 WAYWT posters would have gotte FUCKING shat on before
the /mfa/ thread currently up rn is actually better than todays WAYWT
you're not helping, op. see pic.
tldr: put up, shut up or gtfo
who is that faggot?
im not making a fucking infograph for you.
you see whats posted, lurk inspo threads, and realize what you like, slowly building a wardrobe.
The problem before was that there was literally NO MODERATION in this board. Which allowed for flooding of offtopic shit
memes are not the problem, its the uninformed posters.
faggots making threads to be told what the difference between a derby and a wingtip is?
are you serious?
this isn't what board is. the culture has always been to shit on others while at the same time learning.
there are people on this board who only wear converse and addidas with hoodies WITH NO intention of wearing anything else.
are you serious?
that WAYWT is highschool tier. Ridiculous gothfags and poorfags with fucked fits put a better effort than what I'm seeing here. and thats what matters.
everyone logging off and resuscitating poet
we could start by making a push to keep fuccboi questions in the fuccboi general. Then we could actually give them proper answers while we are shitting on them.
If we put the effort into spreading real fashion knowledge to the fuccbois the board could be at least slightly better.
Stop making shitty threads like this and just report the actual shitty threads or off-topic shitposters.
Don't like pigfuck threads? Report them, they go down quick.
Don't like Cara shitposters? Report them, it's avatarfagging.
Don't like racism? Report it.
I think it would be good to...
Maybe... Only have one WAWYT/Fuccboi/Hair/Fragrance/Skincare/Watch general at one time. No multiples at all.
Or... Completely ban all ad hoc fuccboi-questions and all other stuff that doesn't belong outside of the general threads.
But seriously: Just give up. /fa/ is on 4chan and 4chan is shit in general. We won't be able to have a quality fashion board when we're neighbors with /b/, /pol/, /r9k/, /mlp/ et c. The only good /fa/ is for is to laugh at people who dress like shit and newfriends who are completely retarded
Anyone can come here from the other boards and shitpost at any time. And they do.
>Don't like pigfuck threads? Report them, they go down quick.
>Don't like Cara shitposters? Report them, it's avatarfagging.
>Don't like racism? Report it.
none of that is the problem.
...we need more people like pigfuck.
as annoying and cynical as he is, he is part of the culture.
fuck you pigfuck
burying people in anger? this bumps the threads. also, I don't really think that people will stop posting just because people are writing slurs to them... I mean, this is 4chan after all.
do we simply need more active moderation?
>do we simply need more active moderation?
yes but moot nevar gave a fuck and the stupid fucks who do look after the board dont give a fuck.
Im mad because even with the shitposting and offtopic threads there were stills laughs to be had and informative stuff to be read. now its just all cringe and ignorance.
/fa/ has never been that great, but i will admit that it has gone downhill a lot
everybody thinks they deserve a trip. most people here are idiots who can't even tell the difference between chelseas and brogues and just come here to spam images of that ugly fuck cara delememe
people asking the dumbest questions like w2c stan smiths
people expecting the internet to tell them how clothes and shoes fit instead of just going to stores to try them on for themselves
dumb threads like EDC and those dumb charts where people just post internet images of the clothes they wear instead of just taking a fit pic
is _____ effay threads
neckbeards asking for hair cut advice
poet was a pseudo intellectual faggot who somehow thought he was above everyone else because he didn't have to work since he mommy and daddy paid all of his bills for him
he couldn't handle when /fa/ insulted his waifu timber so he flipped out and left for good. i remember that day fondly and it was one of the best things that happened to this board
>early goth shit
Goth shit has been around 2008.
>actual wisdom being dropped
Very little. Probably less than there is now, due to the board being busier.
>the /mfa/ thread currently up rn is actually better than todays WAYWT
We can say this most days.
as someone who has been on this board since 2008, i can tell you without a trace of doubt in my mind you're wearing rose tinted glasses looking at the past. /fa/ has always been shit. the same stupid threads that choke the front page are still there and always will be here. at least now there's an ambient familiarity with actual designer clothes.
until 2012 you couldnt expect to have any kind of conversation about rick or raf, let alone people condescending about how they are awful or pleb. now you can drop almost any name (eg dries, ccp, viridi anne) and someone will know what youre talking about. there also wasn't even a 'fuccboi general' until... i dunno, 2012 also? so all those questions that are contained in that thread wouldve had their own thread as well.
Summoning the mod to give his/her opinion on the state of /fa/
Rexy/resu/notuser has singlehandedly ruined this board.
Success Nerry is the only one who can save /fa/
I only wish that we could have some kind of petition or something
just show the janitors/mods that a single user is completely fucking up the board by shitposting
Maybe rule 3?
>You will not post any of the following outside of /b/: Trolls, flames, racism, off-topic replies, uncalled for catchphrases, macro image replies
also evading trip filtering by changing nicks constantly
the girl images are not him, though. the images are not fake, but it's simply someone else.
He dropped the not user trip when that image compilation started spreading
Which makes it very likely that it was actually him in the images. he would't drop the not user trip at that time otherwise.
