Actually, this is the first board made by me.
Also, is this NSFW? I can't see because the spooky scary skeleton
Thanks Hiroshima-senpai. I promise to show off the most beautiful parts of superior Nipon culture.
VERY good job lad
not sure about this spooky theme though
/his/ has literally no need for tripfags
Please make it a rule to completely remove all tripfaggots on /his/
Hiroyuki I am a PhD candidate in History and I want to give my opinion that this board will end horribly, and in slow stagnation.
I tried to save the last ten /his/ boards tried on 4chan-like sites, and they just cannot be saved. Please delete this, and let /lit/ be /lit/. /lit/ had great history threads and good general Humanities threads. They brought in all the general /lit/ milieu who appreciated history and made for good atmosphere and discussion.
The 4chan archetype is not like Reddit. You can't subdivide boards into infinite niches, because no one is willing to go to 15 different boards to discuss the little niche topics that they like. People enjoy having a home board that has a relatively broad matrix of connected subjects. When you create a thousand tiny "islands" like this, they sputter and die, never gaining critical mass.
/lit/ draws people like me in because we can discuss closely related, interdisciplinary subjects, and mix that together with giving recommendations and dissertating on our fields of specialty. Boards like this choke out the former while keeping only the latter, and make people like me leave. Expand /lit/'s purview to general Humanities/Philosophy/Social Sciences (like it has always has been) and you will have better success than trying to make separate boards.
Rei a shit.
hiro please remove flags. Flags only cause people to shitpost and to make ad hominem attacks instead of look at your position.
I also ask you to have strict moderation the first couple of days to prevent shitposting.
Shows you just how much of a fuck he doesn't give.
Could you change /vr/ to /rv/ so it makes sense?
/rv/=retro video games
Now I can see all those lovable blunders and stupidity from all over the world!
But what would they call the virtual reality board when VR hits Q1 of 2016? Video Game RETRO is such a shitty outdated board and it stole VR's board name acronym which is /vr/
Thanks Hiro, I've been wanting this board for years now. Hopefully it won't get bogged down with edgy garbage like /pol/ and because unbrowseable, and hopefully it won't be as meme filled as /gsg/
Thank you very much for creating this board Hiro, but I would like to ask two things:
1- Rename this board to just "/his/ - History", or otherwise make a very clear set of rules about what goes here and what goes on /lit/. We don't need more trouble like that between /d/ and /aco/.
2- Remove the flags. They're completely irrelevant to historical discussion and just serve to encourage shitposting. I'm not a huge fan of the IDs either, since most other boards do just fine without them.
Thank you for reading this.
Philosophy, architecture, music and other forms of art are all deeply connected into history and its development. Even in gradeschool you have huge interactiosn bewteen pure history subject and other subjexts like music, math and geography.
With all these topics included this board could maybe saved from being just another /pol/staion.
BRITISH CUNTS WANT TO REMOVE FLAGS
SO THEY CAN REVISE HISTORY
DONT LET THEM DO IT
Flags will keep the goyim arguing amongst themselves like on /pol/.
