I'm not opposed, but you're literally and figuratively the only person that wants this. You're on a crusade for what would instantly be the deadest board on this site. It makes me think there are ulterior motives, like you want to use the board to post pictures of those furry-style anthropomorphic jetplanes and robots and shit. Is that your fetish you deviant? Getting off to an Eiffel Tower with big metal titties? Blow it out your ass.
>>429496 What? I'm saying this because there are architecture threads on almost every board which often get 100+ replies. /his/ was a huge success and I think /arc/ could reach almost /his/ level in activity. That, or a board called /dsg/ could open which is for design of not just buildings but furniture etc.
>>429432 No, but I know what you're thinking of. There was a post to Facebook button and it actually worked. It was hilarious because people tried it as a joke thinking it wouldn't do anything and then they ended up letting all their friends know what they posted on 4chan. Probably one of Moot's greatest trolls.
As you know, many boards have very severe problem with posting quality. Dumping images, single-sentence statements of opinion ("I love my waifu", "your taste is shit") have become ubiquitous through many boards, and the Sage feature has become nearly irrelevant. It's a big enough problem that, at present, it most likely isn't practical for users, janitors, or moderators to address every individual shitpost on a case-by-case basis.
For that reason, I'd like the Hiro, /qa/, and the Mod team to consider the idea of implementing an automatic... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
(cont) There is a direct relationship between post's length and its visible quality. The longer a post is, the easier it is to recognize whether it's a shitpost (or spam), and the shorter a post is the less likely it's of to be of any worth to the board whatsoever. Someone who can't support their opinion with anything worthwhile will be less able to write a lengthy post without filling it with obvious tells or flaws, making it easier for people to disregard, refute, or report them. Longer posts inherently take more effort to write, making people more likely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>429433 Generals were originally banned specifically because they were nothing but image dumping.
They're also usually fast enough to hit the image limit without needing to be constantly bumped to the first page in the process.
If you believe that every board is meant to house image dumps then why does the image limit exist? My suggestion wouldn't ban them anyway, it would just stop people from bumping them to the front page.
Discussion speed is how many posts a given topic may create within a given amount of time. That may be spread out over several threads or focused in a single one.
What happens when you have a topic that interests half of /a/ and limit it to a single sticky (like Guts getting off the boat recently)? The sticky moves at an unreadable pace. Shitposting is inevitable. Having too many posts per minute in one thread is a bad idea. Popular topics need a multitude of threads. Imprisoning half the community into a single thread is ridiculous.
What happens when you have very little discussion and multiple threads (something that may happen with any unpopular manga as anons wouldn't assume that anybody else might be trying to discuss it at the same time as them)? Multiple threads drifting towards page 11. Topics that have barely anybody interested in them should not be spread out. There is nothing wrong with deleting duplicates of slow threads.
The problem with generals is what happens when they have exhausted their topics. Differently from normal threads they are not permitted to die off. Instead they are kept alive through image dumping, non-discussion and immediate replacement upon passing the bump limit. It is at this point that mods need to get active and delete them. There is no point to a thread that exists just for the purpose of existing. It is also taking up valuable space (one of 160 slots) and it makes it impossible to discuss a particular topic without having to deal with a mini-community that is exceedingly estranged from /a/ as a whole.
>>429354 Mods have been lenient about the "all in one thread" thing for a while now. The posters are the ones imprisoning themselves in generals. To improve the quality of discussions on /a/ (or any board) the site first needs to take measures (such as >>429412) against the bottom levels of posting.
>>429291 Look up what sugar relationships are. Then realize what a moron you are. These are hookup threads like any other, just a certain subtype. For example, dd/lg is quite similar and there is an overlap.
Even those that are more interested in online-only things, the rule refers to camwhoring. This is a private relationship.
