CONTINUATION OF LAST THREAD.
DISCUSS IF WE SHOULD SPLIT /v/ INTO TWO BOARDS FOR WESTERN AND JAPANESE CONTENT OR WHATEVER THE FUCK.
Your pic is what should be banned
Also, splits are the worst fucking thing for /v/ right now
We need MODS
If it were to happen I'm 100% positive that most people would end up lurking both
SHOULD /v/ BE SPLIT?
SHOULD /v/ HAVE IDs?
Where did this awful new attitude come from?
Are you reddit scum so unaccustomed to imageboard that you suddenly need IDs on literally every fucking board?
Jesus christ fuck off already. The unique IP counter is bad enough.
/v/ - Video Games
/vc/ - Video Game Culture & Hardware
There you, /v/ is fixed forever until you break it again
>Start a shitposting thread
>Use a dynamic IP
>Pretend to be more than one person and shitpost to oblivion
Don't say that shitposters aren't autistic enough to do this, because they are.
we should split /v/ into 2 boards, one for people who think /v/ is fine, and one for people who want to bitch about /v/ instead of bitching about videogames.
we can even style the new board to look like reddit
>Let's just ask for better moderation. It's not like we've tried that before
To the people who want more moderation. Explain how it would actually happen. Come on. Explain your reasoning. Explain how the mods would actually put in the effort. You can't.
I think /v/ is good as it is, we sure get a load of shitposting but that something that should be expected because is the nature of the competition between the brands of consoles (Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony).
Are the retards requesting ID's just shitposting or is this place now so full of reddit scum they think it would be a good idea?
choose you're fate
The last thread (and already this thread) are prime examples of why democracy doesn't work - you guys are stupid as fuck. Thank god you guys aren't in charge of anything. Hopefully Hiroshima doesn't take any of y'all seriously.
This does not help in the slightest.
Why would you want this when we already know it doesn't work ?
Mobile posters are like special needs children. How often havn't you seen the "Stop spoilering, it's a bother when I'm on my phone" or similar posts.
They should be removed for the same reason mobile games aren't popular on /v/.
/v/ has already split into what, now, four fucking boards? v, vg, vr, and vp. we do NOT need another. if you insist otherwise, you're a literal child.
There is no reason to make such a split, unlike /d/ there's not enough people arguing on /v/ over east vs west. The ones that do are obviously only doing it to ruffle feathers so it shouldn't be taken seriously.
That being said the west ruined vidya.
The problem with /v/ is the majority
The majority will vote to keep the status quo
Why listen to the majority?
And how the fuck would you do that? Please tell.
H-how many video game boards do we need?
Also whats a decent western game? Seriously tho
>30 day min ban
I don't mind either way because video games are just video games. So I won't vote.
HOWEVER. There fucking SHOULD be a /fur/ board, and a global rule that anything furry should be bannable offense everywhere else.
>only one guy in every thread could possibly like anime
There's nothing anyone can do to make /v/ better.
It's a containment board with a videogame theme, and that's all it's ever been for years.
>people are legitimately this stupid on /v/
If someone gets their dumb ass banned, they are completely unaware of it, they are still able to post but unbeknownst to them, no one else can see their posts
>all the people voting yes
>all the people voting yes on BOARD-WIDE IDs
You don't want to "stop samefagging". You just want a way to track a user's posts.
The split wouldn't solve anything because there isn't a problem between fans of western/eastern and people hating on "weebshit" doesn't even know what it means. If anything removing console wars shit and the "stop liking things I don't like" mentality is the true chemo for this board.
Too lazy to read this thread but I'm going to post my opinion anyway.
No, /v/ doesn't need to be split into western/eastern boards. Most people don't give a shit where games come from. Even the threads are made regarding East vs West are nearly always bait threads designed to stir shit. Even the thread linked on qa is clearly that.
The only thing that's going to "fix" /v/ is more mods and janitors so offtopic shit and bait doesn't reach 265 replies before it's taken down (if at all). The only other option is for users people to some self-control and just ignore off-topic and bait threads (which will never happen.
>MUH ECELEBS :(
"Eceleb" discussion is perfectly reasonable and within the rules of /v/, it's called secondary content and video game culture, it isn't cancerous, a poll has been done already and the vast majority of /v/ voted against banning those threads.
You can stop being butthurt faggots about them now. If you're unhappy to see e-celeb threads, hide them.
/vr/ and /vp/ have no fucking reason to exist.
As much as I love the boards, they are very empty with little discussion.
I actually like this
/v/ needs some SERIOUS moderation
It's SFW, no need to blow a hernia, hombre
>END THE SAMEFAGGING
IT'S NOT EVEN A PROBLEM
It's one thing to post a picture from anime paired with a legitimate thread topic, it's another to post thinly veiled bait designed to trigger a bunch of anons into posting "o no 2 lewd hehe" "x is best girl shitpost if u agree"
hey, considering pretty much everyone's gonna read this thread
I've posted in my fair share of e-celeb threads before and it's pretty clear this isn't the place to discuss them
why can't we just, like, have a giant skype group to talk about them all instead? it's pretty obvious that most of /v/ hates it when we talk about totalbiscuit or zoe quinn or literally anyone else
it's obviously a topic of conversation that people want to partake in, but 4chan isn't really the place because there aren't enough to justify an /ecl/ board
just gonna put that out there
The point of this type of split is that it's the only one that would result in a 50-50 split. This evenly separates the shitposting. It has nothing to do specifically with japanese or western games.
No, this is flat out a bad idea, and I don't get why we're even still discussing this.
/v/ is honestly pretty much fine as it is. All the things people complain about are pretty much just one thread at a time. The only thing is when a big release happens mods should delete threads if it gets too much
No, this is the worst possible idea ever. Go the fuck back to Reddit and take your shitty, pussyfoot, non-confrontational moderation strategy with you.
If someone has no idea they're banned, they'll have no idea what bad behavior is. When they get unbanned, they'll just keep doing the same shit.
That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard. Whoever suggested this must be shot.
30 days ban is too extreme. It will just drive more people to figure out how to bypass bans.
Bans should hit that sweet spot where people actually dont evade and still feel punished.
Why stop there?
/vw/ will want a split into /ecelebs/ and /gaming/
/jv/ will want a split into /jrpg/ and something next
No, splitting the board down to two cultural origins is pointless and won't help anyone.
Ask for better moderation.
>/vp/ is a furry containment board
>/vr/ is a fucking graveyard
>/vg/ is tripfag central
Every attempt at making a specialized video game board has been a colossal failure. You can go ahead and make more spinoff boards but if you fuck with the main board you'll end up killing /v/ not to mention it'll spawn the most cancerous autistic community since /soc/.
It really is.
If there's a thread about a particular game, it's usually a good thread.
Dragons Dogma, Dissidia and Monster Hunter are good examples. New Vegas threads go well when Fo3 isn't mentioned.
What /v/ would REALLY benefit from is PC faggots having their own board and leave the rest of us alone.
Image for attention
let's vote on this
They did not get worse. The only thing that changed was the attitude of the average poster. You newfags are completely incapable of coping with anything outside your comfort zone.
Please just FUCK OFF and stop trying to change 4chan just because it's different.
No, the last thing we need is more boards.
Westernfags really do need to fuck off, though. 4chan was originally meant as a discussion chan for Japanese culture.
Maybe they ought to do something about you fucks instead.
>30 days ban is too extreme. It will just drive more people to figure out how to bypass bans
I do agree, I did after all only quote someone elses ideas. Making 7 days the minimum could do the trick, but dedicated shitters still wouldn't be stopped and would need entirely different methods to be stopped.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same guy who was shitposting about needing to split up /co/ and making a board specifically for capeshit.
Pointless strawpolls and everything.
Fuck you I read your post and I agree with you. I say they should keep certain threads up to to contain the people in them. Like keep one up because deleting them is not going to stop them.Like a example keep one waifu thread or something up to keep them from going to other threads.
pls Hiro, we already have two special snowflakes /vr/ and /vp/
>people literally suggesting we turn /v/ into reddit-lite
baka desu senpai
That's a terrible idea. Post count would either not move when they post and thus they'd know they were ghost banned, or post counter does move and all of a sudden threads have a million ghost posts and the counter becomes completely unreliable
Not to mention the fact that rather than encouraging better posting habits, it creates a system that encourages you to not correct poor posting
>it's a memepost because he disagrees with me!
You want to know how to fix /v/? Stop sperging out at the sight of threads you don't like. Almost all of /v/'s problems come from the people who start shitposting in threads they don't like. If you don't like a thread ignore it and report it if it breaks the rules. Posting in it won't make it go away it will only make it last longer.
What if we just
merged every single board into one and upped the page limit to 100?
Every fucking time someone makes a thread about suggestions you can spot the Reddit cancer right away.
And I don't mean this in a memeing kind of way, ghost bans, IDs, general censorship. Fuck these Reddit faggots.
>If someone has no idea they're banned, they'll have no idea what bad behavior is. When they get unbanned, they'll just keep doing the same shit.
> they'll just keep doing the same shit.
How fucking new are you?
Have you been here longer than an hour?
Do you seriously think banning people keeps them from shitposting?
People who want harder mods, why do you want the board to come to a screeching halt. It will be 10x as bad as when the posting was all fucked up. It would be worse than splitting into west and east.
No. The solution to fixing /v/'s problems is better and more consistent moderation and enforcement of rules. The only thing splitting up the board has ever done is split up the issue, never fixed it. At worst /v/ and its offshoots have all become containment boards for a different flavor of shitposting, but the shitposting is still there. A /vw/ and /ve/ split will only foster more shitposting if the moderation remains as horrible as it has been.
...and anyone can check everything you posted for these 24 hours.
Jesus christ, how low have we gotten? How long before you retards start asking for actual user accounts?
I have an idea
You know how when you're banned and you try to post, it just takes you to the "you are banned" page? And when the ban expires, it still takes you there but tells you the ban is now lifted?
Well what if you had ghost bans, but it showed you that you were banned for x amount of time by still taking you to the page when the ban is lifted. You'd know you were banned, and why you were banned, but you'd get the benefits of ghost banning as well.
>splitting /v/ again
if you like reddit, go back to reddit. why does every board need to be divided a million times?
Can you fucking cancerlords ever not have captcha enabled for those fucking votes?
The option is literally right in your face when you make the strawpoll. Just disable captcha. You're a real cocksucker. Sucks cock.
>people want ID's
As expected of neo-/v/ the land of normalfags cancerous redditors.
Samefags are the LEAST of /v/'s problems.
MAKE IT HAPPEN HIRO
It was never about fragmentation anon. Instead of taking the cancer out of vidya, they took the vidya out of the cancer.
>implying PC doesn't have it's own board already
>being this anally anguished over a single platform
>How dense do you have to be to not realize why you have the reputation that you do
You mean with the people that didn't like "weebs" but came to a website full of "weebs" to scream about how much they hate "weebs" on their "weeb" website?
I've suggested this before and the reply I've gotten is that 4chan's architecture makes it difficult/impossible to implement ghost bans.
I'm not sure it would work anyway. The most prolific shitposters would cotton pretty quickly/reset their IP regularly enough to avoid it.
The same goes for thread IDs. It doesn't offer much more than the unique IP count currently does and people determined to samefag can easily bypass it by reseting their router.
Fuck off faggot.
The few days after the /vg/ split we had strict moderation and it was probably the best /v/ had been in quite some time.
And then faggots like you bitched and said "muh culture!" and wanted off-topic garbage like 4 AM threads to be allowed again because they were "/v/ culture". So the mods went lax and then that snowballed into more shitposting that got worse and worse every year.
/jv/ for people who like videogames
/wv/ for people who hate videogames and want to see the industry burn
Are you a Reddit mod from the GG fallout or something?
That wouldn't encourage someone to post better. How can they correct
themselves if they theoretically don't know that they've been banned?
Plus not being responded to would make 'em shitpost harder.
>people actually want E-Celeb threads
Because discussing how much you hate X for the millionth time will somehow end up being a whole new conversation
Make /etc/ (Ecelebs, twitter, crap) and excise them from /v/
Captchas don't take any effort. Hell 90% of the time you just click the button and it's good to go without doing the "select whatever" thing. Only reason to get pissy about a captcha is if you're doing something that causes people to implement it in the first place.
>SHITPOSTERS WHO ONLY COME HERE TO REQUEST PORN AND ERP IN PORN DUMP CIRCLEJERKS
But having Tifa lewd circlejerks is one of the few good things about /v/.
CAN WE AT LEAST AGREE ON WHAT WE DON'T WANT
>Another board split
It is not, however, TRUE anonymity. There will forever be a certain flavour to your posts in any given thread. You can't joke around one moment and then a few minutes later pick up some completely different argument or conversation and act like you're a different person. Having actually experienced thread ID's on the other chan, the phenomenon of getting "shitposted at or harrassed or judged later in a thread while taking a debate or conversation seriously because you shitposted earlier for shits and giggles" is very much a thing.
4chan's true anonymity thusfar has had the benefit of avoiding that sort of thing. The benefit of 4chan's true anonymity is that only mods / janitors can tell. You can't be reprimanded or punished by other users holding a grudge. Each post is its own brush stroke, while thread IDs will invariably tint all of your posts a certain colour. People will pick up a trend. It's namefag-lite, and if you post in multiple of the same types of threads, people will be able to recognize you much more quickly, to the point that even if you have a different thread ID, unless you completely change yourself.
Thread IDs in the end will harm the individual, genuine user with the occasional misdemeanor far more than it will harm repeat offenders.
A Western /v/ would free us of:
>casual dudebro garbage
>bitching about SJWs ruining the industry since Japan does not care for them
>PKek elitism and Xboneheads
Why the fuck don't you want this board, you morons? A Jap only /v/ could easily be one of the best boards of the site.
That's dumb. Eastern and Western games isn't even a clear distinction. Is Dark Souls an Eastern game just because it was made in Japan? It's still filled with western ideas, game play and motifs, and inevitably will be in both boards. This will happen with any game with even the slightest hint of influence from either the West or East. So why bother dividing /v/ up?
If somebody knows they are banned retard then they will change their IP and not change their behavior.
Try browsing the site for longer than 5 minutes before shitposting about reddit to fit in next time.
East vs West is fucking retarded. A better split would be actual video game discussion, and video game "culture." But /v/ has been split enough already, what the board really needs is strict moderation. Or the creation of a celebrity board, which would better like five other boards.
I don't think it would do much.
If I was a newcomer to the MGS series I would think it's a Western game because of all the damn cut scenes and how the characters are modeled.
So I would go post this in the Western board and then get yelled at and bitched at.
I can think of this just happening on both boards creating a bunch of shitposting and not actually discussing the game.
Guys, you can stop crying, no one is gonna divide /v/ into /eceleb/ or whatever it is you want. Hiro asked this before and we gave him a resounding answer. You can stop bitching now.
he's got a point kind of but so do you, people talk more about the personalities instead of the games involved. Those threads could be a fun time of shitting all over each others opinions about video games while watching people be shit at video games (kind of like any tournament/event viewing thread) but people make it too personal.
nintendo posters: aggressive hugboxing manchildren who don't belong here
xbox posters: don't exist
sony posters: don't spam, have decent quality posts
pc posters: spam their shit, blatantly falseflag, low quality shitposts, eceleb nerds, twitch nerds
if mgsv was ps4 only, the board wouldn't have been 90% mgsv threads
Guys, guys, obviously we need to split the board between things I do like and things I don't like.
That'll fix everything.
Split /v/ into /v/ hardcore vidya and /vc/ casual vidya.
Then remove retro vidya and have them take their retro games to the respective boards.
There, I just fixed /v/. No more ecelebs, no more halo, dota, skyrim, cod, or other AAA titles and we get to discuss the classics once again(I know you can make threads about it still, but they rarely get much life).
Give me a legit reason why we should not have ID's.
That's how it used to be. The problem was that we didn't have the catalog or any kind of thread management controls. We'd be fine if we re-merged the boards and smoothed out the moderation.
>video game "culture."
You mean memes and "ps4 has no games" being spammed all day?
Please for the love of god no. It would already slow to a grind the posting on /v/.
Ah I forgot about /vr/. In reality though I don't think dividing /v/ into /ve/ and /vw/ would just be too much of a clusterfuck. I can budding off from /v/ an /iv/, indie video game, board but East and West is to large of a split.
Oh wow, le how new are you meemee. Nice one, let me print it off and put it in my scrapbook.
No, you idiot. If you read my post while using more than one brain cell, you'll see that the problem comes in not being confrontational. I undedstand that banning doesn't stop it, but does that mean the mods should just give up? That'll show shitposters that mods got tired and opted for a lazier moderation system. It tells them that they're winning against the moderation and wearing them down.
You think this website is filled with "WE NEED BETTER MODERATION" as it is? Just imagine what it would look like if mods effectively vanished.
Then that's on the mods and janitors.
Also, is anyone else having problems with the captcha the later it gets in the day? It basically becomes impossible to even report something after a time.
>Is Dark Souls an Eastern game just because it was made in Japan?
Of course. What kind of retarded question is this?
>It's still filled with western ideas, game play and motifs, and inevitably will be in both boards
It was influenced by Berserk, which is a Japanese manga. The setting isn't even that similar to WRPGs since they're all Dwarves, Elves and Humans bullshit and the Souls series have none of that.
Well we've had a few threads about this, and the answer from the majority is a resounding "no."
I think that resolved the issue, Hiro.
Preservation of anonymous "culture".
Although I think it's still preserved as long as it's thread-specific only.
I would rather no ID than having board-wide IDs, that's like making everybody a tripfag.
Dynamic IPs. People will just make threads and reset their routers to make bait threads and "sock puppet" arguments with themsleves.
Yes, it's pathetic but it's obvious faggots like Rugarell will resort to it.
/v/ was already split with /vp/, which got rid of Pokemon.
/v/ was split again with /vg/, which got rid of long-term threads.
/v/ was split a third time with /vr/, which got rid of games made before 1999.
Every time /v/ is split, more discussion leaves.
The reason /v/ is so bad now is because all the video game discussion is slowly driven away.
All you're doing is encouraging more video game discussion to leave.
>Nintendo threads are hugboxing manchildren while sony threads are quality
Or they both have decent threads when there's no shitposting. It has nothing to do with brand loyalty.
But vp and vr are good and vj would be a bigger board than both of those without all of the SJW and gaming journalism shit.
It would basically be actual /v/ while this shit hole can keep going through retarded cycles like back when everybody wanted to post stupid fucking "video game stories" where they just talked about their lives and that made the mods have to come up with that PRIMARY SECONDARY META shit. Just let faggots shitpost on /b2.0/ and let people who enjoy actual video games from the motherland talk about video games and argue stupid points about them with each other.
IT'S NOT ABOUT JAPANESE OR WESTERN GAMES
IT'S ABOUT AN EVEN SPLIT
ABOUT SEPARATING THE SHITPOSTING INTO TWO EQUAL HALVES
WHY ARE YOU ALL SO MYOPIC
I am against eceleb shit in general, but making a whole board for them is absolute overkill.
I dont even see too much of that shit on /v/ lately. Most eceleb shitters stopped their spam recently.
They should just be banned in general.
It's still stripping away one of the core and founding components of this site.
There are countless websites out there where you can have an ID, but this one was founded on not having one. It's simple as that.
And for the record, I'm against the IDs that some boards already have as well.
REMOVE CONSOLE WARS
My stance is that "e-celeb" threads have always been a part of /v/, Giant Bomb threads for example have been a part of /v/ since 08.
The newfag sentiment that started spreading and coming up with "e-celeb" as some kind of insult to these threads is retarded and those faggots should stop trying to affect our shit.
Just hide threads if you don't like them.
>You can't joke around one moment and then a few minutes later pick up some completely different argument or conversation and act like you're a different person
>getting "shitposted at or harrassed or judged later in a thread while taking a debate or conversation seriously because you shitposted earlier for shits and giggles"
I see no problem with this. The ends would absofuckinglutely justify the means if anon abuse like this stopped
Apparently most of /v/ has that problem
how long before you realize that /v/ is the /ect/ and everything worth discussing has been moved off the board?
The only reason anyone comes here anymore is to find out about upcoming releases and gossip. And maybe some meta game discussion like console wars, artificial difficulty, east vs. west, developer husbando shit. All actual video game discussion has moved to /vg/ and /vr/ for old games.
This chick. Fuck.
Thing is, /v/ doesn't need to be split at all. Here's what you need for a good /v/:
>disable any mobileposting
>increased moderation to the point where a fucking OP image of porn doesn't last 300 posts
That's a moderation problem, not a Japanese culture problem.
Besides, it's part of /v/ culture at this point, much like LOL and CWC threads.
You don't go to Kotaku and bitch about their feminist articles. You don't go to Neogaf and bitch about the Sony shilling. You don't go to Reddit and bitch about the cancer. Probably because that's what you signed up for. Same logic applies here.
But it's clearly obvious that there are more console shitposting than PC shitposting. If anything most PC shitposting is baiting and false flagging. Hell this thread has fucking nothing to do with console war shit and yet we have:
This is a stupid idea because there have been many collaborations between East and West in the past for video games. For example, where do we talk about the Metroid Prime series? Or the Donkey Kong Country series? Or DmC? What about the Metal Gear series, which is made by a westaboo and is completely out of place with other Japanese games?
HIRO KUN FOR THE LOVE OF GOD BAN ANY FAG WHO POSTS TWITTER SCREENCAPS AND E-CELEB SHIT. THEY ARENT VIDEO GAME RELATED, THEYRE OBNOXIOUS CIRCLEJERKS AND ALL THEY DO IS BAIT RETARDS INTO REACTING ON SOME NOBODY'S RETARDED OPINIONS
I say split, look at /vp/, /vg/, and /vr/ you can actually discuss shit there. Once the split happens /vw/ will literally be 4 guys talking about need for speed and Assassin's Creed whole /VJ/ will be lively as hell without the shit posting from Western fans.
I thought you were meaning threads like
>[list of games coming out for PS4]
>why haven't you bought a PS4 /v/?
but shitposting against the topic of the thread like youre saying is still shitposting and should be moderated, but that's going to be near impossible to effectively integrate
/v/ is shit, but that's a popularity issue, not really anything you can do about it
BAN ALL E-CELEB AND TWITTER SHIT
We've been over this before.
An ID system faces all the same flaws as the current ban system, and only provides a false sense of security.
Those with dynamic IPs and smartphones (Also see: The biggest shitposters) will simply samefag by using multiple IDs. It can, does, and will happen.
Furthermore, the concept of IDs is counter intuitive to 4chan's nature as a whole, which is why Moot finally removed it from /b/.
IDs are as adept at preventing shitposting as wordfilters are. In otherwords, it doesn't prevent it. At all. The board will suck just as much as it did before, except people won't be able to call the dynamic IPs out on their samefagging anymore.
Your ideas are awful, and you should keep them to yourself. Except for the whole "report this thread" idea, that's a good one.
Personally, I just want more active trashing of shitposting threads.
I'm so sick of these consolewar and blatant bait threads.
4chan was founded as a website to post anonymously on.
You need to take a step back and think for a moment on why exactly adding IDs isn't ridiculous given the core premise of the site you're on.
That is the stupidest shit I've ever heard.
Most people can enjoy both Japanese and Western games. There's no reason to split the community cause some people can't handle different opinions.
Pokemon discussion being removed barely changed anything, and has no reason to exist thanks to vg yet it still does for some reason.
and vr is a fucking graveyard, not even kidding.
>nintendo posters: aggressive hugboxing manchildren who don't belong here
>sony posters: don't spam, have decent quality posts
>pc posters: spam their shit, blatantly falseflag, low quality shitposts, eceleb nerds, twitch nerds
Not even joking i have you filtered but man , bait or not that is one of the most retarded things i read.
Heck , i visit both sony generals on /vg/ and know how cancerous they are.
Not even going to reply you again.
I want another board split. I want a board of weeaboos so /v/ will be more like /a/ or /jp/, two boards that are actually not total shit. Anything shared with people without a weeaboo style Japanese ideology will have a shit board because westerns come into the board and insist it's for whatever the fuck they want and that it's their god given right to talk about whatever they feel like there, even if it's cancer.
In /a/, cancer like Naurto is banned because allowing cancer brings more cancer and lurk more. On /v/, people make dumb arguments like NOT BEING ABLE TO TALK ABOUT VIDEO GAMES ON A VIDEO GAME BOARD! so you it slowly degrades into shit.
Pretty much, and /v/ says it's them that are annoying when all I see are obvious bait/false flagging threads
PCfags kill every fan base they touch
Nintendofags are actual manchildren autist
Xboners are irrelevant
Hiro my man, can we get a sticky with updated /v/ rules, more active moderation, and a limited test run of IDs on the board just to see how things work out with the system implemented?
That's all we'd need to improve this place, and we could even scrap the IDs if they don't immediately improve the board.
But updated rules for /v/, pinned to page 1 with a sticky like most every other board, would be a great first step.
>mfw Hiro is not even reading this thread and everyone is literally screaming to a wall here
this guy is in love with pacman
>wanting to kill /v/ even more
I wonder who's behind this motive.
>But vp and vr are good
/vp/ hasn't been collectively good in years. The infestation of [s4s] doesn't exactly help either.
The thing about /vp/ is, it isn't /mlp/. They aren't banned outside of their board, like newfags like to spam any time people make a Pokemon thread, and they're based off a franchise that's, honestly, stagnated a bit. Combine that with the shit moderation that pretty much killed the "culture" and pushed most users away, /vp/ is a testament of how splitting the board does no good in the long run, or at least it shows that if you're going to make a board, don't fucking abandon it after 2 years then come back not knowing shit about it.
Splitting /v/ into a finite amount of boards is not the same thing as requiring logins and allowing unlimited board creation. I'm not even a proponent of this idea but the constant reddit-calling is fucking delusional
>look at /vp/, /vg/, and /vr/ you can actually discuss shit there
No one used the term before moot put it in his news post. No one other than that micromanaging fuck would try to define a "bad post." Exact same as fucking "board culture." They both have some basis in reality but they are used almost exclusively as a downboat for posts you don't like.
We need mods who actually do their jobs.
They need to rangeban shitposters so they can't evade bans.
And that's how we fix /v/.
Usernames and Thread IDs are completely different matters. This isn't an attempt at stripping away that every poster is treated equally in each thread, it's just to prevent people from acting as other people or pretending different people are the same.
And you can fug right off with your "core and founding components of the site", old /v/ was just full of namefags and tripfags.
>I see about 30 fallout 4 threads in the catalog
Did you report 29 of them for reposting? Or do they talk about different aspects?
Don't answer that, announcing reports isn't kosher.
Holy shit no, why? There's overlap in genres between western and japanese games, too. This is the worst idea I've ever heard.
Only reason I can see anybody supporting this is elitism and dumb memers.
