every time someone makes a thread with image.jpg it's either some newfag shitposting or reddit garbage not to mention that only underage normalfags would feel the urge to post something from the fucking phone
In order to prevent redundant threads with users crying into the wind, let's create a single list of board-related issues in order to better discuss and propose suggestions to Hiro and the staff.
When posting an issue, be sure to post which boards the issues affect, and try to keep it civil. If you would like to contribute more specifics, examples, etc. to a single issue, then by all means do so.
The current major issues, according to /qa/, are:
>/tv/ >A lack of consistent moderation >topic favoritism beyond the stated board rules, including allowing porn and meme threads to go unchecked while banning any mention of actresses
>/v/ >a lack of consistent moderation >disagreement over what is and isn't board related, resulting in calls for a board split.
>/d/, /aco/ >The creation of /aco/ had negative effects on /d/'s community and board culture, slowing the board to a crawl and leaving many topics untouchable by either board
/co/ >the increased popularity of superheroes in recent years has created a glut of superhero threads on /co/. The creation of a separate thread that allows live-action, animated, and comic book superhero content has been requested.
>/pol/ >the addition of flags to the board was a punitive measure by moot applied for personal reasons, and negatively affects communication on the board by introducing regional tribalism.
>Global >the feedback form receives few public solutions to issues that are not software related, even though it supposedly applies to board issues as well. Issues of board content are often dealt with directly through hostile posts and spam, resulting in this slow, indirect method of feedback seeing no use. It provides users with little satisfaction or confirmation of its usefulness. >Many feel the moderation teams have become too comfortable in their positions and feel possessive towards the boards they frequently moderate, removing control of the community from the users.
>>376844 >save Is full of people bitching at each other because no one can agree. Or trying to enforce change on boards they don't visit by shouting he loudest (spamming more threads). I don't see any saving going on here.
>>376844 >people trying to save 4chan from its inevitable death eheh heh.. hahaha... HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOD YOU BELIEVE REDDIT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
/a/ is full of shit (and Redditards/MALfags, coincidentally). What gets me the most is when they say they're "self-moderating", despite being babysat by their mods constantly. It's a generals-infested trash heap, probably the worst board on the site.
Because I have really been thinking things over as of late: This hate against the mods is going nowhere. Its gotten us nowhere. They hate us as much as we hate them, and look at where we are at now.
We need the user, the ones who love their board and are dedicated to it, to self moderate it. A few dozens users, but ones that care deeply about the board. Guaranteed you'd see a huge reduction in shitposting
Anything beyond that should be the responsibility of the janitors and moderators, the former of which is made up of volunteers from the community.
Giving just anyone the ability to hand out bans or delete a post goes against what 4chan is about. As much as I hate to see nigger dick threads on /pol/, I don't believe that I personally should be given the power to delete them. That's the job of janitors or moderators, not anyone outside of those two groups. Because if we did have some sort of system where unpopular posts would be deleted if enough people clicked a button, we'd become reddit, and lose all the free speech rights we prize here.
A better idea is more janitors and holding those janitors accountable, not just for when they fuck up but when they're doing a good job. Good janitors should be treasured and use their skills to train new janitors in their ways. All boards need more good janitors.
>>376406 I once called someone >butt blasted on a board. The guy got all pissy, so other users started doing the same. For over an hour he whined for the mods to save him while people made fun of him. It was magical.
I also made a quest thread on /tg/ and made the users on three separate sites rage for two months straight about it.
I have a cure-all solution for corrupt (and otherwise retarted) moderation, its simple, give mods a fucking identification of some sort, and you can file an abuse report, after each report has been checked, its added to a tally keeping track of unfair bans, once they reach 5-10 unfair bans, they no longer get to be moderators, if you still want to keep them anonymous, don't give then an Identification, but make it so you can report the ban, and it still gets added to their tally, there would be so many mods that would lose their positions if we did this.
>>376215 You're going to get triggered when you see one of the "Parliament" threads floating around certain boards in which hundreds of different tripfags blow each other in different cults of personality while teaching newfriends about tripcodes and encouraging their use.
