Hiro, you really want to know how to get rid of shitposting?
Well here's your answer friend.
There you go. Anybody who is against this is most likely a shitposter.
It would eliminate console wars and general retardation.
Just take out ecelebs and sjw related threads from /v/. That would be a first step.
It's almost as if the idea of splitting the boards even further is cancerous and riddled with ignorance.
Really, who knew.
How about if we just ban all videogame discussion and turn /v/ into blue /b/?
No. If anything we should split between board /88/ and board /MV/
Board /88/ for only those born 1988 or before. If you are born later than you are ban from the board. It helps eliminate all casual and cancerous posters.
Board /MV/ will be Millennial video game board where they can discuss game more on their speed and be basically the kiddy table.
No. Western game are trash. Split by East and West or I am going to kamikaze /sp/.
SJW complaining and e-celeb shit happens with both western and console PC gamers. Purge the disgusting westerners.
how about you fuck off back to reddit
Post your waifu and what how you want to fix the board
Reposting from the last thread, because I really need Hiro to see this.
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.
Fuck no. Every thread that has ever gotten a public ban has ended up with 186 greentext replies of >User was banned for this post.
Whoever posted the thing that got banned gets a "badge of honor" and a shit-ton of replies to feed off
Just delete the thread for fuck sake.
Fuck that noise. The amount of times I've saged something on /tg/ because my post was well off topic, but have accidently derailed the thread as people start yelling about sage, and how it does/doesn't work, is quite a lot. All it does is encourage idiots to spam.
Splitting boards is for shitposters that flood boards with a single specific type of thread, examples being MLP and Pokemon.
The fact that anons can't even decide which community needs to be split off (western, japanese, Nintendo, Sony, etc.) proves it doesn't need to be split.
we have 3 other boards for vidya besides /v/ and there is STILL shitposting and newfaggotry by the day.
either accept that this place is just going to keep getting worse or move on
just briefly put /v/ on a hiatus and let everyone go back to /b/ where they belong
I hope you guys realize that Hiro isn't even here right now and that you're all screaming at a whole bunch of nothing.
>no more console wars
>no more EA/Besthada shills
>no more eceleb drama
>no more sjw threads
Name one reason why we should even keep western shit in /v/ because /vj/ sounds God tier to me
it's an episode of big bang theory where It is your Type that Jayski All of these things and look at me crooked Behind my back, you know, what's next? Dear, all over the face. Because I feel so low The rock fall at the bottom of the room. Rock-a concussion, plumber"
Jesus christ can we stop it with the completely unnecessary board splits, there's no reason to change /v/ except for baby bitches complaining like they always complain. If you want hyper specific boards for hyper specific topics go to fucking infinity chan and watch how no one posts. Or better yet go back to fucking reddit where you belong.
Dissent is not the same as retarded fucking shit posting thread.
I go to /a/ and you know what I see? Tons of anime. Everybody is talking about anime. You know what else? Anime like Naruto is flat out not allowed despite it being anime because it is gateway bullshit that if allowed will lower the quality of the board.
That is how board culture should work. Faggots like you on /v/ cannot process this idea and want muh freedom so you can keep your shit board but give us a Japanese game board where we can actually talk about video games without stupid SJW, Twitter and E-celeb shit. It's perfect because there are no good western games anyway.
Bring back 4chan to its Japanese roots. This is what you're senpai want you to do, Hiro.
You can't disappoint senpai right?
A board where Rise threads don't get deleted is almost in our grasp.
STOP FUCKING DISCUSSING THIS
Hiroyuki, stop fucking asking what we want and trying to interact with us as if we were part of your dev team. Community interaction is fine but don't fucking listen to our inputs except through your email. It's your and the mods teams' job to run the site, delegating it in any part to millions of people in a format where the most ill-conceived, retarded ideas are given the same weight as thoughtfully and carefully considered ones where all it takes to overwhelm the opposition is a million "THIS THIS THIS" posts which are essentially upvotes.
If something is implemented for the worse, you can be assured that there will be major backlash, but if you are considering something, implement it first and wait for the response, don't come wade in the common filth that is us.
Also, thread IDs are fucking retarded and it goes against the anonymity that makes this site even worth going to. Redditors pls go
>5 video game boards
No. We don't need to split anything. We need
>more active/better janitors
>get rid of /vr/
>bans should be 7 days minimum
>ban e-celeb posting
>ban shitposting like Fallout 4 preorder threads
>no duplicates such as having 50 MGS threads
This is the dumbest fucking idea ever.
>GIVE ME ID'S ON AN ANONYMOUS IMAGE BOARD
There I did it bro thank me later. Give us /v/ and /vj/ Hiroshima.
>divide board into /vw/ and /vj/
>both boards are simply dedicated to shitposting on the other board
inb4 /vj/ would actually discuss vidya, you and I both know that would never happen.
>I posted the oldest image I've saved, that means I'm old!
STICKY WITH UPDATE RULES
BETTER MODERATION TO CLEAN UP OBVIOUS BAIT THREADS, PORN DUMPS AND IMAGES THAT DERAIL THREADS
posters will get depressed when they notice there's no console poster for them to brag 60fps/1080p, they will migrate to shitpost on console boards rending the board useless
guess it will be ok, kinda dead for a while whenever a new console pops out and with a few shitposters going to nin/xbox boards
dead before it was even born
dead most of the time, only threads that will constantly live are the ones about nintendo girls, but the board gets resurrected once each six months when nintendo releases a new game, since pokemon still has it's own board
The best solution is to not enable consolewars even further.
What happens when a /v/ based board is "invaded" by another /v/ based board?
>we're all little girls right gaies :3
>purest form of love
>but that's forbidden love
>what are you, some kind of faggot?
>ha ha I bet u havent even watched 20 shows, Naruto/SnK/KlK/whatever fag

>i want to hold hands with X
>b-b-b-but anon, that's l-l-lewd
>i want to abuse spoiler text
>you /v/ermin scum are ruining my perfect board, fuck off before I email Moot
/a/ sure is a high-quality board.
I still remember the lol threads with visible bans. Entire thread derailed even further with everyone sucking mod cock or talking about how lol threads were saved forever. Two days later and they were back to the same sjw-bait comics and other completely off topic bullshit.
Merge /v/ with /vr/, /vp/ and /vg/
You know it'll fix everything.
>/v/ is shit because of constant Pokemon threads, if we get rid of pokemon /v/ will be better!
>/v/ still shit
>/v/ is shit because of of people bitching about how their old games are better! If we cordon them off /v/ will be better
>/v/ is still shit
/v/ is shit because the average age of the poster here is 13, it's spent the past 10 years because the board shitters from /b/ graduate to once they're done in the kiddie pool, and ever since TOR all anyone wants to do here is talk about what a flop the next big release is going to be.
Can we have boards for each of their respective consoles too?
/psx/ /ps2/ /ps3/ /psp/ /psv/ /ps4/
/xbox/ /x360/ /x1/
That should solve EVERY ISSUE this board has.
Want to make more video game threads. Merge it all back together. /vg/, /vp/, /vr/
Bring it all back
>but muh spam a bloo bloo bloo
Not shut the fuck up, its not spam if its vidya. put all video games back on one board and restore balance to the mess moot left you, only logical split I could see is PC and Console as separate boards.
By what logic are you saying they will be shitposted?
/vp/, /vr/ and /vg/ don't have shitposting anywhere near the level of /v/ and those are all splits. Literally you are saying that if you break the communities in two everybody will suddenly shit post for no reason with no evidence to back that up.
Just have fun in your shitty /v/ which will be for western games and will be shit posted to oblivion only by virtue of the fact once the actual weeaboos leave there will be nothing left but normalfags that can only shitpost even if they try not to.
Don't split /v/. Make a /jv/ but let everyone talk about Japanese games on /v/
I remember hearing about how Kotaku used to be wordfiltered, would be great if that was enabled again.
>What is the X or Y of videogames? What did he she/he mean by this? What are some games where i can X should be deleted and people banned
>/tv/,/r9k/ offshoot threads
Just get of it all into a new trashcan board.
To those of us with multiple platforms, ie those of us who aren't twelve and can buy our own shit, having to browse multiple boards to discuss video games is fucking stupid.
I know your parents would only buy you one console and won't buy you the other, but unnecessarily splitting the board isn't going to make you any less of a twat.
/v/ dont need that shit, this board need thread ID.
Oh. Right. I don't think the majority of mods are literate. That's why they only ban threads with pictures that break the rules but ignore off topic flame wars and other text based shitposting.
Then what the fuck would be the point of a /jv/ here's a better idea, stop with the stupid as fuck board splits just because a handful of dumbshits complain. People will always fucking complain about the most inane shit, /v/ is fine as it is there's no need to split it any further then it's been split.
>Not shut the fuck up, its not spam if its vidya
>I came to /v/ in 2012 please validate my opinions
I'll give you /vr/, that was one of the most boneheaded things I've seen here, but /vp/ and /vg/ were entirely necessary to stem the tides of pokeporn and LoL/SC2/KS generals that choked out all other vidya discussion.
>To those of us with multiple platforms, ie those of us who aren't twelve and can buy our own shit, having to browse multiple boards to discuss video games is fucking stupid.
Not him but are you stupid enough to not have a few tabs open?
>>What is the X or Y of videogames? What did he she/he mean by this? What are some games where i can X should be deleted and people banned
>>/tv/,/r9k/ offshoot threads
Splitting the board won't fix either of those things. You're an idiot if you think otherwise.
we don't need to split up /v/ any more.
now that /his/ exists the only board that needs to be added is a wrestling board.
I would say that create a board exclusively for ecelebs like lpers, youtubers, viners or whatever, but that would bring a new wave of normies to alredy-infested-with-normies 4chan.
Give /v/ IDs. Blue board. Improve moderation.
Create /vsoc/ - a laid-back social environment in which gamers can discuss whatever they feel like which doesn't belong on /v/. Make it a red board. Little to no moderation required.
Create /onv/ - Online video game board which allows anons to set up online matches with other anons. Things like /v/eekend mario kart or /v/eekend smash bros. threads will go here as well as things like "Looking for sixteen players to play Halo with" or "Who wants to do a co-op campaign?" Blue board.
It's already been said, but can you idiots please stop advocating for the death of this board?
The only reason splits happened in the first place is because generals kept cluttering the board and pokefags would completely take over whenever there was an announcement for a game.
There is literally zero reason for /vr/ to exist, and even less for splitting up the boards by platform. Do you actually want to become reddit 2.0? Do you like hug boxes? The only split that would actually be beneficial is the creation of /eceleb/ as a containment board.
Amiibos are purely japanese.
Sonygger shitposters love to jump onto both the west and the japanese side to make their flawed arguments.
Visual Novels are cancerous nongames.
Xbox fans do not exist either way.
There's a difference between
>WHEN'S PC RELEASE?
>sonygger, nintendrone, xbot, pkek
>'I've never played this game because it's on a platform I absolutely hate so I'm just making shit up or parrot what someone said in an earlier thread about it to piss off people who liked it'
>game X is bad because of reason
This is a fine thing to KEEP on /v/.
/vsoc/ would be good though, basically /v/b/ which is what this place shouldn't be and what people desperately want it to be despite it making video game discussion very hard.
I've got an idea. Change /vp/ into /vnin/ and all Nintendo discussion goes there. It's impossible for Nintendo fans to have discussion here because sonyggers keep making bait threads and nintendrones keep replying to them. /vp/ on it's own is a relatively slow board anyway so it could do with a broader topic and more traffic.
This won't stop sonyggers and mustards arguing, but it would stop a fair number of the console war threads.
ALL THESE FUCKING PEOPLE WANT A BETTER /v/
YET ALL YOU FAGGOTS WILL DO IS KEEP ON SHITPOSTING OR REPLY TO OBVIOUS SHITPOSTING
HOW ABOUT YOU SELF MODERATE TO SOME FUCKING DEGREE BEFORE ASKING FOR ANYTHING?
Well then get rid of /vr/ make console, pc and make /vp/ handheld, simple, broad but well defined
all the moba shit threads can go to PC
Even more of a reason to have separate boards for ass holes like this guy
This would be awful.
I rarely post. I come to /v/ to learn about new games across all platforms.
/v/ is just right the way it is... maybe get some better mods? I dunno.
Again stupid as fuck hyper specific splitting. If you want this shit go start your own dumbass reddit board or infinity chan board. This shit is retarded, you can't just keep sub-dividing until you get a specific community of five people all talking about the one thing that solely interests them, it's retarded.
Remove people who shit on anime. I don't understand why these people are deciding to come here when they can't stand anime.
>Give /v/ IDs
Wouldn't solve anything.
Its already a blueboard
> Improve moderation.
You can't just "improve moderation". That's not a solution.
Moot tried for 6 fucking years. It never accomplished anything. How long until you finally realize its not the solution?
>Two boards can't have the same memes
>People should have entirely different personas when going to different boards
While good ideas they are also totally unrealistic, next thing you're gonna tell me that you need to sign up for one board when you go to 4chan for the first time and then you can't post on other boards.
Fuck splitting the board into 4-5 different boards. In the other thread someone mentioned making /vc/- Video Game Culture which would definitely get rid of all the SJW, E-Celeb etc... shit posting.
If you make a /jv/ board every single shitposter on /v/ who doesn't like japanese games is going to redirect to that board.
Besides could you imagine an E3 2016 with two groups shifting back and forth with discussion based on the country of origin of whatever the fuck game was just announced on stage?
For those you need not-retarded moderation teams. Self-control doesn't work considering this board's huge population
I still want that /vc/ just for people blogging about video games and the people who play them instead of actually talking about the videogames themselves.
>reddit this, reddit that, hello redit, etc.
it's sad how that site sat afire your butts
and it's even worse when i see the same shit on other less cancerous boards meaning you fucks are spreading like a disease
Funny enough , I would be for an age separation board. 25 over and under board. It would be good for the over board to have none shitposting threads and serious discussions while under 25 can enjoy the shitposting and CoD and whatever the flavor of the month game they are playing
It's too late. The genie is out of the bottle. /v/ spent too long with no moderation and it allowed a bunch of new users to come in and think that offftopic shit/bait threads are the norm. They now spam that shit thinking it's "board culture".
The only way to combat that is with 24/7 moderation which all the new users will rally against because it goes against their perceived "spirit of /v/" where they can do whatever the fuck they want.
These threads are just the same posts posted over and over and over
First of all, that's not true and you know it.
Second, if that is truly a problem then what makes you think splitting it into multiple boards based on console or country of origin would fix it? If anything the fix for that would be to loosen the rules of /vr/ to make it anything from pre-seventh gen (not that I necessarily think that's the right idea, but still.)
And thirdly it isn't as if other boards, namely /a/, aren't just as guilty of this issue if anything.
>if you don't agree with me you are reddit!!!
I could care less if ID's get added or not, I mostly care about everything else he said like more moderation.
If you get triggered over a small change that most likely wont happen I think you need to go back to Reddit
Well someone mention spit into /vc/ video games culture.
With this all in eceleb threads will be there
And all the LOL, gamer fuel, file name, battle station threads As well
And so am I
I just want a place where I can talk about other stuff with people who share the same hobbies as me.
>le you're reddit if you don't want thread ID meme.
Ironically most of the people who say this are from reddit or other sites and basically just come here to shitpost and spew crap that would get them banned anywhere else.
Some of us actually use this place as our only vidya site and care about it not being a shitfest of samefagging and shitposting.
There is no coherent argument against ID on a thread by thread basis unless you're a shitposter who derives amusement from making threads worse for other users.
/pol/ only got better because every anon couldnt make jewish falseflag threads
no wonder you're against it.
We can lose it later anyway, not like code is fucking permanent or something.
>waaah shitposting! wahhhhh!
I bet dollars to donuts every whiner here throwing a fit about "shitposting" does one or more things that other whiners would consider "shitposting" and deserving of a salt the earth ban.
>that's what a shitposter would say!
>Stupid board memes which happen in every human community in existence are telling of the boards quality.
Holy shit you are stupid. Please stay on /v/, you directly degrade /a/'s quality by existing on it.
Because /vw/ would just be shitposting and /vj/ would just be waifu shitposting
The thing is western and japanese fanbases keep each other in check on /v/. They perfectly co-exist with one another.
The problem is that anime posters are blatantly trying to start threads that are barely related to video games and just want to talk about anime. Admittedly, /tv/ crossboarders are pretty bad at this too.
The only thing worse than people that bitch about anime on /v/ are people that bitch about people bitching about anime on /v/.
That's a problem of moderation dumbfuck, not a problem of the board topic being so super specific so as to prevent any possible form of shitposting. You're a retard if you think any of this board splitting is an actual good idea.
>every post against IDs is a le reddit shitpost
The funny thing is everybody here knows that the ones who fear IDs the most are the actual legitimate shitposters who come here straight from reddit or other sites with the intention only to stir up shit with spam and samefaggery.
Only shitposters from other boards or from other sites cry about reddit in every post, and only shitposters from other boards and sites have a problem with the system designed to prevent samefagging.
The argument is that this is an anonymous image board and you should be judging each post individually, not worrying about someone making more than one post in the same thread. Moron.
Oh I'm fully aware of what they are, we already have them on a select set of boards, and they are cancerous there as well.
Samefagging is just something you have to deal with. It's not that big of a deal that we should strip away a core component of the website.
>hurr lets make le leddit 2.0
>le awesome hurr durr
Im saying both boards have the same problems in that 2d woman obsession has gone too far.
I bet money I'll get told to fuck off because I dared to say obsessing over fake girls for years might not be healthy.
Just fucking kill all the /v/'s and rebuild it as one from the ashes. We must become one again, brothers.
Everytime OP starts a thread, he gets an autoban and can't post in his thread, nor can he post in other threads.
>every thread has people that can't google
>every thread has people who still don't get around sad panda
why are you treating /v/ like people put effort in here? the complete lack of effort is why people shitpost here.
/a/ still has KLK threads. You can discuss anything in /a/ except gurren lagann, dbz, and other shounen /v/ trash.
>First of all, that's not true and you know it.
Its true, and you don't know it because you are riding the flow of the month with the rest of /v/
>Second, if that is truly a problem then what makes you think splitting it into multiple boards based on console or country of origin would fix it?
More concise userbase instead of an all out for vidya (a third don't even play videogames anymore)
> If anything the fix for that would be to loosen the rules of /vr/ to make it anything from pre-seventh gen (not that I necessarily think that's the right idea, but still.)
Not a solution. I am not moving to /vr/ even if it looses up up to 2010. I don't care about a doom board. And just like I am not moving there, neither are the shitposters( or maybe they will, which would work better for me and worse for you the /vr/ user)
You trying to say the shitposting threads on /v/ aren't the kind of threads they love screencapping for epic points?
Better split it up into handhelds, consoles, and the games on it by year too at that rate.
>Some of us actually use this place as our only vidya site and care about it not being a shitfest of samefagging and shitposting.
This, for fucks sake.
It's irritating how many people use /v/ as /b/ 2.0.
WHO /l/ HERE?
>mfw /aco/ and /his/ but no /l/
Then get the fuck over it, splitting the board down to super specific topics isn't going to stop shitposting, quit being a fucking bitch and deal with it. Welcome to 4chan dumbfuck.
No, something obviously needs to be done. How about that instead of splitting up the community even further how about we just get some decent fucking mods/janitors? Have Hiro do another round of applications just for /v/ and tweak some of the rules and you'd be off to an amazing start.
Okay I understand a lot of people are concerned about the state of /v/ and the endless shitposting between different fans and whatever.
But holy shit son, /v/ does not need to have like 8 boards.
Found the occupational redditard.
>hurr le ID's would le never le hurt anything
aside from the fact ID's make anonymous posting NOT ANONYMOUS, you mouthbreathing redditard
This, but this isn't the topic of this discussion.
Would really like it though.
Make a thread on /qa/ about creating /l/
I will support the shit out of it but I can't articulate an OP very well.
>a string of randomly assigned letters and numbers that only lasts for a single thread means you're not anonymous.
This was always a shit argument.
And if this site is going to allow crap like tripcodes then may as well have an ID system that actually stands a chance of making things better rather than worse.
Unless you mean this OP in particular.
What if we just sent a sniper to every single /v/irgin house to snuff us out?
>Can't love glorious 2D
>Is mad about not experiencing happiness
>Happiness that "losers" can have because they have imagination
You were right, I'm gonna tell you to find another board, or another website entirely, if you have a problem with people liking anime and japanese culture on a website founded for such people.
>It would eliminate console wars and general retardation.
No it wouldn't. That would just cause shitposters to raid each board with specific bait. No better than what we have now.
Why the hell would you want to encourage ghost posting? It would punish those who want actual discussion while doing nothing to stop the shitposters who keep posting "what did he mean by this" and "what is the X of video games".
Here's a twist - ban the metafags instead
Then we won't have to deal with whiny fags fresh off the boat from reddit complaining how this board isn't like /r/games
/v/ became famous by being the Wild West of video game boards, not a sanitized messageboard for serious discussions
Completely fucking wrong, and if you're really convinced that shitposting is the only reason anyone would be against IDs, you're either delusional or a newfag, which is why people are calling you and similarly retarded people redditors.
>/a/ loli threads are always full of shitposters and false-flaggers
you know what shitposting about gg I see nowadays?
Its constantly falseflagging in favor of zoe/anita and posting their fucking tweets. Talking about totalbiscuit and his cancer.
pretending the exodus did anything is dumb. The discussion is STILL here because infchan is slow.
We don't need to split /v/ again. Everything is fine with how it is right now.
>Ironically most of the people who say this are from reddit or other sites and basically just come here to shitpost and spew crap that would get them banned anywhere else.
Holy shit. You are stupid. That is part of the points of 4chan. You can say whatever you want as long as you don't break the rules. Also, if I'm in a thread and arguing about apples, then I say something retarded about oranges in another post because I don't know shit about oranges but am an apple expert, people should not be able to judge me based on oranges when I'm right about apples, which they will.
For example, you are probably thinking I'm a retard because of a food based analogy (even though it's great m8) but in my next post I will not use that but you have no way of knowing that is me and can therefore only judge it based off what I am saying.
You probably don't understand that though because you have only been here for 4 years. The creator of the site itself thinks the fucking ID system goes against the principals of the site.
>a string of randomly assigned letters and numbers that only lasts for a single thread means you're not anonymous
Yes, you imbecile. That's literally exactly what it means.
>BUDUR IT'S ONLY ONE THREAD
One thread too many. Fuck off.
/l/ should be allowed only if the mods are allowed to be FBI agents
On IDs, it's as simple as this.
4chan is an anonymous image board. Its purpose was always to allow for individuals to post without an identity, something that most websites encourage or outright enforce.
Now you can have an identity here via a tripcode, but it's not mandatory. Adding mandatory IDs, to any degree, goes against a core principal of 4chan.
Seriously, you can go elsewhere if you want identification. There are countless places to choose to post, but you chose here. So kindly deal with it.
Have you noticed how autistic this board is?
Half the posts will be people comparing IDs to previous posts as an attempt to invalidate their opinion with shit that doesn't matter.
Not even /tv/ is as bad as this place. Sure, there's lots of shitposting threads, but people actually discuss the subject of a thread, whether it's shitposting or legitimate. Same can't be said for this place.
>hurr le ID's would le never le hurt anything
What? Did you even read my post? I never even said I wanted ID's I said I didn't care whether or not they would be added
Please go back to pre school since you obviously can't read
Western girl faces are literally disgusting.
Most weebs don't actually make the threads about it though. It's just faggots who want an excuse to shit post or post shitty Skyrim mods. At any rate that problem is solved by a east west split anyway even if it is weebs so I don't give a fuck, just split them.
people who wants ID are underage, newfags and the cancer that killed this site, just do whatever the fuck u want hiro this site is shit
I still wonder why 4chan still doesn't ban MAC adresses instead.
Seems to me like the best solution possible, makes shitposters need to pay actual money for devices to be unblocked.
>You aren't going to fix /v/ by splitting it up anymore.
Splitting up what exactly? Endless shiposting of JUST, eceleb threads and console wars?
There's barely any good discussion that goes on.
I don't use reddit but i'm sure there's better discussion that goes on over there.
OR don't. That seems like a better idea.
Can we please let OPs bump their own threads again
>Resets IP to bump own thread
>Normal person makes a videogame thread
>It gets buried under all the shiposting.
In the old days I would samefag my own threads just to get enough people to see it and get a decent discussion going. Now I have to dick around with my router just to do it.
Here's what we do, split the board into the following to get rid of shitposting
>/sony/ for all Sony home console related things sixth gen and newer
>/sonyh/ for all Sony handhelds
>/XB/ for all Xbox related things
>/ninc/ for all Nintendo consoles sixth gen and newer
>/ninh/ for all Nintendo handhelds
>/pcc/ for casual PC gaming
>/pce/ for enthusiast PC gaming, mid-level rigs, etc
>/pch/ for high end PC gaming
>/pca/ for Apple OSX PC gaming
>/pcg/ for GNU+Linux PC gaming
>/pcs/ for PC games available on Steam
Then we add user IDs, not just random gibberish either, but mandatory user names to stop shitposting.
And to really curb the flow of shitposting we should have some kind of vote system in place to bump and move down bad threads. Kind of like visible sage, except allow people to see how many sage posts a thread has. And make it so you can sage individual posts in addition to threads.
Anyone who disagrees is a shitposting shitposter who shitposts all the time. Shitpost.
then why insist that the id system wouldn't reduce shitposting to a degree or just make it so the smart ones have to try harder to shit up /v/ when most /v/ users are probably kids anyway.
Which board was the word changing done? If so why doesn't he change all the words you mentioned into "faggot"? It literally doesn't change the context of the statement and removes the dumbass words.
Can we have a wiki on the sticky like /fa/, /g/, /lit/, and /mu/ does? I think it's pretty neat also webm with sound pls
They would samefag until paid attention. They would continue to bump a thread while samefagging, killing other slower threads. /v/ is simply incapable of ignoring shitposters because sometimes you are just bored and "why the fuck not" reply to them
>What if you just ignored shitposters?
This board has been trying to do this since the newfag summer of '07
its funny how everyone still calls it that since anyone who started posting back then is an oldfag now
Yeah instead they fucking raid this board with shit like bane,suicidesquad posting, palpatine,and game of thrones.
They're basically responsible for half of the threads from >>315349363
Because you need to sack the fuck up and get over it. Shitposting is not so bad that people can't have actual decent discussions, you dumbfucks just like to complain so that you can get your hyper specific subreddit-esque boards where only three people post.
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, Xboneheads, Sonyggers who praise their movie games and Nintendrones who defend NoA's retarded bullshit
Split /tv/ into /tv/ and /film/
Create /cel/ for celebrity gossip OR create /tweet/ - Twitter.
Give /v/ IDs
Give /v/ webms with sound
Filter more words. One day long ban for any posts which try to get around the word filters.
Create a blue /b/ and call it /misc/. Nobody knows /qa/ exists or that it was originally intended to be a blue /b/. It has just become a board which discusses 4chan happenings.
Disallow trips on /v/.
"ID" stands for identification, which is a bit of a problem considering this is a website founded on not having one.
And yes, I've used the boards that have IDs on them currently. I am for removing them.
>4chan is an anonymous image board. Its purpose was always to allow for individuals to post without an identity, something that most websites encourage or outright enforce.
And IDs would not change that.
Move e-celebs discussions, youtubers and twitterfags into a new board.
>Another normalfag mad he can't experience having a waifu
>Feeling the need to tell yourself that "Everyone else is just pretending"
>Not just admitting that you're dependeant on others for love unlike superior weeaboos
A dedicated Nintendo board would do wonders, like /mlp/ did when that cancer was spreading. Nintendo said they water not competing with Sony or Microsoft, do it just fits.
Leave the rest. MS, Don't, and PC have a good deal of comparison /cross-platform threads, and have more in common than Nintendo.
Splitting east and west can get confusing (euro devs and indies sometimes mimic Japanese/Chinese/Korean dev styles and vice versa) and some posters may not know the difference.
This east/west game board idea sounds kind of dumb.
What if what I want to talk about isn't east or west?
What if I want to make a thread about a game mechanic or something?
There'd still need to be a "general" video game board (that isn't /vg/) for stuff like this, so you'd be splitting the board into three parts. That'd make what, 6 video game boards total?
Really? Because it creates an identity for the user in the thread, which is against one of the founding principals, even if it's just to a small degree.
Or are you talking about how it wouldn't change things because the people would want to circumvent have an identity, would circumvent it regardless, because on that I agree.
>boss of the internet
I would hang out with the most obnoxious redditor over you every day of the week, friendo, and I've been a regular poster on this site since 2005.
There's already a ban wordfilter in place for certain console war terms. The only thing that happens is that people come up with new words. I'm not going to test the filter, but I know for a fact [console name]fag was wordfiltered. The board would tell you that "Your post is rude :("
Just because you don't do it in every thread doesn't mean you're not a problem. I'm assuming you're the samefagger since you can't give me another reason for thread IDs being a bad thing other than "It makes samefagging harder".
If you samefag you are part of the problem.
If your thread doesnt pick up without you samefagging then maybe you should try again later or realize that people dont give a shit.
I take it you haven't seen the Witcher 3 spammer and his one man shitposting crusade against a game he doesn't like? To the point that it basically just derails any actual discussion.
The way the board is now is incredibly vulnerable to weaponized autism e.g. Rugarell
I want the people who treat japanese games like the second coming of christ to have their own board merged with /a/. Lets see how long that will last. I can tell you a secret.
It won't even last two days.. These people also can't seem to understand that there are people who likes content from both continents. I want people to realize that, when you are in rome, you do as rome. Japanese games and Western games are fine. They can live in harmony postingtogether. But if you start to stir shit between the two of it and falseflagging wars, you should literally self-destruct by jumping off a bridge. People from other boards invading and spreading their culture on /v/ need to fuck off.
Add better moderation on /v/. Outright ban people for fucking weeks for shitposting. Over time the no-fun allowed atmosphere will dissipiate as people can seperate their stupidity from quality posting. The effort to make /v/ somewhat decent again is half from the mods, and half from the userbase.
I also want consolewars to stop, even though it has been here since 2006, its been far worse than recently, especially when E3 comes up or a press conference from console xyz. Send those fucks to /vg/ to their own general. Or to neogaf I really do not give a fuck.
Shillposting is very apparent, in particular the sticky'd assassin's creed thread few weeks back. Permaban these people. Blanket ban them. Just make sure they never return again. I don't care if you get a few innocents between it. Let them contact you and get that sorted case by case basis.
All in all, /v/ has a lot of work to deal with. And boardsplitting wont work when we have a several video game boards already.
Get to it Hiro.
>killing other slower threads
Do you have even a clue how this fucking site works? Do you understand how much work it would take to actively prune other threads by bumping your own with shitposts? Jesus christ almighty. You fucking idiots really are genuinely braindead.
>and I've been a regular poster on this site since 2005.
Go back to Something Awful
Hey if you want a board about a specific subject go to reddit or infinity chan. They're perfect for you. Otherwise shut the fuck up because the only think any further board splitting will do is further kill this site and degenerate it into a sea of inane bullshit.
Posting without IDs creates an identity for the user in the thread too, because you will always be able to link back to that specific post.
But ultimately you are still anonymous.
>implying im a normalfag
Nope just not a dumbass who believe everything I see on /v/. Waifu is now a normalfags meme in case you didn't know. I approve of people who are actually faithful to their waifus and really love her but all these fucking facebook kids that are just pretending? All of them can go fuck themselves and the majority of /v/ are pretending.
This is a horrible fucking idea. All it does is make 4chan into a happy little hugbox like every other shitty gaming community on the internet. Nobody is allowed to say anything negative, because everyone is expected to stick to their own kind.
There is a reason the PC gamers and Nintendo fans dominate /v/. It's because we are the intelligent majority and the definitive members of the community.
>There you go. Anybody who is against this is most likely a shitposter.
So nobody is allowed to disagree with you basically. If you're going to make this assertion, then I assert that anyone who supports your idea is a Sonygger who can't handle the banter.
No, it's clearly not.
Routers being able to change IPs really PISS easy, as in literal 5 minutes is, in my dictionary, 4chan MAIN flaw.
Shitposters, samefagging, eceleb cancer. Porn dumps. All of those derive from the same source.
Rangebanning was also a terrible solution, it's literally jewish, and I will always hate moot for ever thinking it was a good idea in the first place.
You can't stop shitposting unless you nazi mods and turn this place into Reddit. Unless the user base change /v/ will always have shitposting.
If you have ever been on /pol/ you can see the effectiveness of IDs.
>"ID" stands for identification, which is a bit of a problem considering this is a website founded on not having one.
Yet there's been a name field since day one
Complete, perfect anonymity has never such a highly-held ideal here as you'd like to think
Tripfaggots arent a problem anymore.
As a matter of fact, things got worse when tripfags dropped their trip because people couldnt filter them anymore.
Like ACFag and Ruggarrell.
>Ponyfags and animefags act the same
>Aside from the fact that they like different things
This has just occurred to you? Took you quite a while. Ponyfagging has been a thing for five years now.
Console wars aren't even nearly as the same as they were before.
Before: It was friendly banter
After: Actual literal shitposting with copypasta and sale numbers with multiple threads per day
>Go back to Something Awful
While this will go over the heads of 99% of the people in this thread, this simple line of dialogue is the ultimate proof that not only was 4chan never good, but that it is very much the same website it always has been.
We have this kind of thread last night and mod banned it because it isn't vidya
We just need better mods that's all
The current mods are just retard normies Who will ban everything just because they can like those state trooper who pulled you over for going 5 mph over the speed limit.
Then maybe we should contact Hiro so that he considers adding MAC bans.
That way a ban would be a proper punishment tool again and the worst shitposters could get removed forever.
>What if I want to to talk about isn't east or west.
Games cannot be not either East or West. The only people who make games are either in Asia, which is East, or the first world, which is west with the occasional BR which is also west.
It would be fine to even let shit like Indivisible go with Weeaboos because that's obviously the target audience.
Oh don't fucking try and spin this.
Thread IDs give you literal identification that even allow you highlight posts made directly by that user. When you post anonymously, you can be anyone. Hell, there are countless times when I've just continued off of a conversation someone else was having with another dude, and I doubt the other person even realized or knew he was talking to a different person.
>It's because we are the intelligent majority and the definitive members of the community.
Glad we can agree on something, normalfag.
