Serious question, has anyone here successfully forced a meme? I'm working on it on another board and it made me wonder. I figure people who have done it would be likely to hang out here, if they're around.
It wasn't exactly a meme, it was an "epic thread screencap". I just made a thread, everyone believed it and I did the screencap myself. Everyone saved it and posts it. It still gets posted about daily on various sites such as 9fag, funnyjunk etc.
Why is this allowed? I want to filter which boards I want to see in popular threads tab. Now everytime i open 4chan, some cancerous pony thread always pops up and its always in the first or second row.
can we get flags turned off on /pol/ for a little while, maybe a year? it was fun for a while but now it dominates the discussion too much. /pol/ is turning into second /int/ and flags have to go so we can at least discuss something that isn't meta shit.
I suspect that there's going to be a book about 4chan at some point in the future. An actual book about the history of the site, not a meme like pic related. If such a book were written, what things would it cover, ideally?
Books about websites don't really work. Even the movie about Facebook wasn't amazingly popular. Because anyone who cares can find out that knowledge with a simple Google search or they've been there long enough to know about it all. It's not like a person where there's people to ask questions about, letters to go through, historians to ask stuff, etc.
And it's already mentioned in the only capacity it was ever popular in during moot's TED talk. A place where you can anonymously say things and have freedom of speech. Granted, the freedom... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>409905 We can debate things that are true. Truth has nothing to do with your ability to convince people of something. It is generally easier to debate on the side of truth but it is not impossible to debate in favour of a lie, and people do it all the time.
In this case, your assertion that everybody you don't like or disagree with is Reddit isn't true. If it were true, then I could point to several deplorable things that are not Reddit, and if you like them, that makes you an irreputable ne'er-do-well of a person. For example, sexualization of minors isn't allowed on Reddit. This is my first example because you might like the sexualization of minors, which seems highly likely from your anime monster girl post.
Another thing that is not Reddit is Tumblr. Do you like Tumblr, OP?
A final thing that is not Reddit is Facebook. Do you like Facebook?
I have more if none of these examples are suitable to you to convince you that not everything you dislike or disagree with is Reddit. If you admit to liking all of those things, you will be quickly disregarded as a credible source worthy of debate.
We need to seriously fix the report system on here. First off it won't work if you have to type the words out, which appears often. Secondly, the options are limited at best. We need a feature that lets us type in what exactly is wrong with the post or thread.
For example I see a thread about shitposting, so I'll click rule violation and type in "User is shitposting and derailing thread". Fixing this system would go such a long way in people actually using the report feature. Its a broken mess
It's actually Google that is causing that scheme. When you get that style of captcha it is programmed to not work whatever you put in, for some reason.
Of course, the mods are to blame too because they haven't come up with a replacement. So yes, they probably are trying to avoid work and this is still worth drawing attention to. Frankly I see no reason why reporting should even require a captcha.
First thread is almost off the board so here's a new thread to discuss the issue some more. Why does Global Rule 15 still exist? The rabid popularity of MLP has lowered tremendously on the internet since the fandom's height in 2011-2012. No longer are we in an age where you'll see people spamming it everywhere or having pony avatars on every forum. The fandom has mostly fiddled down to its own niche sections and don't appear too much in the wrong places anymore.
I bring this up because on several boards throughout the site, a user who people refer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>409769 Whenever banned, this user just ban evades and comes back to shitpost some more, sometimes not using his usual images to mask himself. If GR15, this user might have no further reason to continue doing this.
However note that I'm not stating that this user alone is the only reason this should be done. As I said, the rule is archaic and no longer necessary due to the fandom's dissipation over the years. Its already against the rules to post off-topic content on boards, so if the rule were removed it would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>409770 Oh, and so people know the threads Barneyfag has ruined that aren't even MLP related: >>>/v/323739464 https://4ch.be/v/thread/323488773 https://4ch.be/v/thread/322305418/ https://4ch.be/v/thread/322524548/ https://4ch.be/v/thread/323240167/ https://4ch.be/v/thread/323187849/ (3/2)
