Holy cow, we're back! >>18190
It has been one month and 3 days, we're still here, the site hasn't been threatened by any legal bullshit and all is good in the world.
ITT: complain about jannies & their moderation, demand for gamergay to be nuked from orbit, wonder whether I like Phil Collins or not.
This is going to stay up for exactly 48 hours.
Does anyone have the banner compilation from fat/v/ that I made? I somehow managed to lose it
shit I didn't mean to sage FUCK
Shitty markup makes me rage.
It's just the spoilers.
I wish we had a little more traffic, but from a feature perspective I can't really complain about this site. Just have to stick it out and wait until people with good sense figure out that this is the best board. And not spam it on halfchan like that one faggot
>Saging the OP post
>This is going to stay up for exactly 48 hours.
Just keep it on 24/7.
I didn't know why every other board in the webring did it, but it seems that meta banter creeps up in other threads if there isn't a meta location for it. I would prefer not to.
I think things have been alright, at least considering the circumstances in the world at large.
And apparently cripple kike is fucking up Kohlchan now, piece of shit
I've been noticing someone has been spamming zchan on other imageboards. I'm pretty sure the spammer isn't from here and is just trying to give zchan a bad image. Am I the only one who noticed this? It seems like a lot of people don't want to come here because of the spamming fag, but maybe I'm just being a schizo.
>Just keep it on 24/7
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PASTA?
ALSO PLEASE BRING OUT JANNIE-CHAN FOR THEIR PUBLIC HUMILIATION RITUAL.
Anybody who would come here would see the low PPH and leave. I think cuckchan has like 3000 pph but I could be wrong because I haven't been there in years.
Not implying the low PPH is a bad thing, if anything it's good because it keeps normalniggers away for the most part
Let's not commit a Loki's wager fallacy here. While having halfchan /v/ tier of post vomit would obviously not be desirable because most of those posts are completely irredeemable trash, we could stand to have a few more posts.
>I wish we had a little more traffic
Eh, it surely could be a bit faster but I've grown not to mind at all. It's definitely far from dead, there is discussion and we have game nights. Don't worry too much about it, I'd say in the long run a stable tightly knit community is more appealing.
>Just keep it on 24/7.
While meta threads are meant for feedback and whatever other shit they usually turn into an excuse to have a /b/ thread. Meta is gay, I want video games on the video game board. You can still use it while it's still in the catalog but I'm definitely gonna bumplock it in two days. 48 hours is plenty of fucking time to address and discuss whatever issue you may have.
Isn't he literally wanted in the US?
Nah it's happened quite a few times in the past too, I'm uncertain whether it's someone who's unhappy with my position against "advertising" or some retard who got banned and is trying to retaliate. Either way, can't do much about it.
>WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PASTA?
Hell, I don't know, spaghetti I suppose.
>ALSO PLEASE BRING OUT JANNIE-CHAN FOR THEIR PUBLIC HUMILIATION RITUAL.
Forgot a reply.
He is, but he somehow got involved with their Kholzine publication
>Meta is gay, I want video games on the video game board.
This makes it sound like the 48 hour thing is a kneejerk reaction rather than proper policy.
>48 hours is plenty of fucking time to address and discuss whatever issue you may have.
Not the point.
People want to talk about meta issues as they pop up and after they die down it doesn't matter anymore.
I'm sure there's a lot to say about, for example, >>7430 (Derailed to death by meta shit), but it is in page 7 and was a few days agoso nobody is going to talk about it.
Ditto for any other Meta issue that happened in the last few months. Specially the ones that happened in the gamergate thread, which will turn into a dead thread if you let any of the shitposters on marks or julay's side take over.
>>13377 (OP) (checked)
>wonder whether I like Phil Collins
Do you like Phil Collins?
How in the fuck is that a loki's wager?
Jesus, you could have at least picked something like gnocchi
Honestly, I had taken that for granted as its own subcommunity at this point. I don't ever visit that thread. GG served its purpose when I (and presumably lots of other people) became aware of the names trying to ruin careers in the industry and the collusion that I might not have if I only read one outlet. Now specific journo names will elicit chuckles just by their mere mention, like Patricia Hernandez. I knew journos would take bribes before, but that took it to a new level for me. To me a meta issue in that thread is one that doesn't concern the rest of the board.
>there is no discernible middle ground between 20 pph and 3000 pph
Obligatory nuke the GG thread post.
Otherwise I don't have problems, jannies seem to be doing their job.
I said that the low PPH keeps normalfags away not any of what you quoted idiot
That's why I said "let's not..." Instead of "stop committing a loki's wager." Calm down. I'm just sick of people saying "uhh, not that it's a bad thing we have insanely low traffic..." like they'll get mobbed by a hugbox.
I would like more posts as well but if the cost for that is horrendous post quality from le epic shitposts that people feel the incessant need to respond to I don't want more PPH
We have a meta board already,reported.
>Honestly, I had taken that for granted as its own subcommunity at this point.
And that is utter failure
I'm sure the Gamergate thread is important, or at least used to be. Everyone is having a bad reaction to them because it grew bad back in /v/. Acid/Mark may have killed the thread and Julay may hate it for their own reasons, but that's just petty bickering.
I do know two diggers who would wish to return to working there, if there were actually people to organize with. And I think the e-mail campaigns and information dug up about DiGRA was useful, same as the information on the recent Tencent takeover which was over on 8moe.
Sure thing mate.
Get back to your cage, rulecuck.
I like the GG threads for news. I dont really have an issue with them.
It's... totally fine, spam and that one CP thread get nuked on time and the threads have good posts. I agree that a couple more anons wouldn't hurt but if the quality and stability stays that should solve itself.
To be clear, I wasn't trying to quote you, I was trying to present the argument I didn't want anyone to make. That was poorly communicated. Yes, I think it will take a long time for people to migrate here without having a flood of shitposters, probably in ones and twos. That's the way things tend to go when imageboards aren't shit. You have to wait for people with attention to detail to notice your board, and they also have to be either dissatisfied with their current board or curious enough to venture forth.
I read about the DiGRA shit when it was current, way back in 2014 or 2015. It was highly relevant and interesting, I agree, but if investigations haven't moved much in 6 years what's the point? There was also a point which it turned into just circlejerking, admittedly I haven't visited the thread in years at this point.
>but if investigations haven't moved much in 6 years what's the point?
They haven't merely because the thread turned into circlejerking.
I am hoping that you see why I want to support that thread, instead of having it die.
>point point point
Wew lad, have I reached the high score yet? That was bad.
Then your dedication is admirable after all these years, but I do think the spirit behind GG has been "set free," in a sense. Would we have this leak shitposting party over The Last of Our Jews if it weren't for GG? Maybe, but I don't think it would have been nearly as popular. To me that's the important part. The culture has shifted towards being more critical of both high and low budget moviegames (remember it was a low budget moviegame that started the whole thing) and the journalists that enable them.
>lost the banner compilation
Get bullied, dweeb. Where do you want me to put them up?
>People want to talk about meta issues as they pop up and after they die down it doesn't matter anymore.
Explain to me how a meta thread is going to deal with either of those any better than a report for derailing would.
My original plan, which by the way was already kinda outlined here >>6629, was to have an "official" one regularly every 2-3 weeks at most to discuss issues with the moderation and gather feedback. Having a meta constantly up to report shit seems redundant in my opinion.
>derailed to death
If people stop posting in a thread it just means there's no interest in doing so. Derailment has been dealt with in quite a few threads and they're fine and dandy (AGDG and nip learning two recent examples), all without the need of a meta. Reporting, threads or posts in a meta isn't any more effective than using just using the report function.
I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
I don't know my pasta well.
Gonna ban this outlaw, thanks for reporting him.
>Do you like Phil Collins?
>Complaining about jannies
unchecked, what the hell.
Just post the thing you nigger.
How many zch tabs do you anons have in this post economy?
A tab for every thread acroos all 8chanmoe,geimu,8kun and 9chan.Get fucked nerds.

11 although I sometimes close on threads like the Linux or graphics one and just wait if they pop back up.
>Explain to me how a meta thread is going to deal with either of those any better than a report for derailing would.
Because you can fit one line of text in a report, and people want to discuss meta issues at length?
I don't get how this questions fit in with what we were talking about. You shouldn't report posts in the meta thread, and you can post about meta in reports.
I prefer Huey Lewis, Cretu and Alphaville for that essential 80's sound.
Yeah, I love it here. You can discuss shit properly without too many spergs and still have enough banter to keep away the hugbox faggots. I do appreciate the speed at which the underbullied janitors clean up some threads.
I want to know - what IS wrong with having a 24/7 meta thread for everyone to shitpost in? What is your argument? It is contained to one thread, it induces PPH (and thus activity, new posts and replies to those posts, whether useful or gatekeeping) which not only this place needs, but the webring, too. Having a place for people to post in like these "Post in this thread every time you visit the board and there are no new posts" threads, combined with a meta thread for 2:1 value? It sounds great. And keeping the board more dead for the sake of quality sounds like a peak of retardation because getting five good posts every month when there's literally nothing else on the board sounds horrible compared to getting two great posts and two hundred decent ones.
There's also the following to consider. The last escapade that blew up Julay produced good amounts of OC. Having a 24/7 line with administration to shitpost about things like these sounds great and it's all contained within a single thread.
Lastly, QTDDTOT threads are limited to questions and /any/ threads are FUCKING GAY BECAUSE "POST /ANY/ IN THIS THREAD XDDDDD EXDEEDEDEDDEDE :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDddddd" IN THEIR TITLE TRIGGERS MY AUTISM IF YOU TELL ME WHAT TO DO YOU CAN GET FUCKED LAD
YOU CAN HAVE A SINGLE THREAD ON THE BOARD FOR COMMS WITH ADMINISTRATION, CONTAINING SHITPOSTS AND PROMOTING WEBRING WITH PPH ALL AT ONCE AND YOU ACTIVELY CHOOSE NOT TO BECAUSE MUH POST QUALITY AND AN IRRATIONAL FEAR OF CUCKCHAN SOMEHOW COMING HERE AND TAKING AN INTEREST IN YOUR GAS STATION LOGO HOW ABOUT POSTING BETTER SHIT YOURSELF NIGGER FUCK YOU WITH THREE HUNDRED OCTOPUSES, A CACTUS AND A BOTTLE OF EXPIRED WINE YOU ABSOLUTE WEAK WILLED PUSSIES AFRAID OF WORDS ON THE INTERNET, YOU ABSOLUTE REMINDER OF WEAK-WILLED SOMEWHAT WHITE NIGGERCATTLE BEING AFRAID TO MAKE DECISIONS ON THE INTERNET, GIVE UP ON IMAGEBOARDS A SECOND TIME YOU ABSOLUTE "FUN IS NOT ALLOWED ON MY IMAGEBOARD UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WE MUST POLICE THOUGHTS OF OUR BROTHERS AND INDUCE GOOD PPH EXCEPT WE DON'T ACTUALLY DO SHIT, TODAY OR TOMORROW OR IN THREE WEEKS'S TIME" J A N N Y AND FAIL AT EVEN THAT. IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY WITH HAVING A GOOD META THREAD FOR DISCUSSION YOU ARE MARK AND THERE IS NO ARGUMENT AGAINST THIS.
FUCK JANNIES AND FUCK ALL THOSE WHO SERVE THEM
There's a /b/ board already fucking autist,fuck off.
The point you keep deliberately ignoring from the jannies is that since they're doing a decent job of keeping the threads clear, having a place for "shitposters to vent" is redundant if the shitposts are culled and not tolerated to begin with. Also having a permanent meta thread that is also a shitposting containment thread would quickly become entirely pointless and become an incestuous pit of circle jerking, like every general thread.
>it induces PPH
For what? Bitching and shitposts, as you yourself admitted? What a great and worthwhile addition.
And it's fucking shit. I want to shitpost on /v/. Fuck off.
>having a place for "shitposters to vent" is redundant if the shitposts are culled and not tolerated to begin with
Shitposting can induce good discussion.
>Also having a permanent meta thread that is also a shitposting containment thread would quickly become entirely pointless and become an incestuous pit of circle jerking, like every general thread
Discussing current events is pointless? Shitposting about whatever games is pointless? It's not gonna be a 4 AM thread, people can shut that shit down just by laughing at it.
>For what? Bitching and shitposts, as you yourself admitted? What a great and worthwhile addition.
It's discussion. If it devolves into shitposting, it's fine, if it devolves into people making an effort into their posts, that's fine too. If you believe it's impossible for both to happen and it's only one or the other, lurk more and thought police less, friendo.
Thanks spaghetti you wonderful faggot. Glad my email was able to help convince you to come back. You're doing well, keep it up.
>we have multiple gamenights, sketchful and 8chanmania
>8moe has nothing
Did Mark do something there to make everyone fuck off?
Nothing new I guess, the hosts just don't like the kike.
Now I know you're being disingenuous. No general remains on-topic for any appreciable length of time, unless it is to post porn about the subject matter. When you make a general thread, the boundaries of what is accepted continue to stretch until they don't exist, because there was never a defined goal or topic for the thread. The reason the vol wants to limit the time on this thread is specifically to avoid that inevitable spiral into garbage.
>Shitposting can induce good discussion.
A shitpost which induces good discussion is actually a failure of a shitpost; i.e. a worthwhile post. Shitposts are, by definition, those which do not foster good discussion. Not sure why you're trying to shift the definition.
>It's not gonna be a 4 AM thread, people can shut that shit down just by laughing at it.
A 4 AM thread is actually superior to what you are suggesting, since at least it has a single purpose (shitposting) and not two purposes.
I was winning before this, shut up.
He's literal advocating for shitposting,stop giving him atention.
No you weren't, I just didn't say shit because your posts weren't as obnoxious. Thanks for that.
I have a compulsive urge to argue with retards in the most clearheaded way possible. I've been trying to control myself but I figured I may as well do it in a thread that has 2 days to live.
>No general remains on-topic for any appreciable length of time, unless it is to post porn about the subject matter.
Then it's discussion about something you don't like. It's a matter of steering the discussion then, this can be done through skill. You lack that, so you thought police.
>When you make a general thread, the boundaries of what is accepted continue to stretch until they don't exist, because there was never a defined goal or topic for the thread. The reason the vol wants to limit the time on this thread is specifically to avoid that inevitable spiral into garbage.
See above. It's a simple enough matter to say "FUCK OFF NIGGERS" in a really loud redtext and post enough copypasta. And silence isn't preferable to garbage, it's worse - and garbage can be converted into at least SOME decent discussion.
>A shitpost which induces good discussion is actually a failure of a shitpost; i.e. a worthwhile post. Shitposts are, by definition, those which do not foster good discussion. Not sure why you're trying to shift the definition.
Because there is a degree of shitpost in every post and you can't claim that every post on the internet is equally worthless. It's not going to be twitch chat and it's not going to be a phone chatroom. I used the term "shitpost" to jokingly refer to a post made by anons without effort. Can you not understand this? Fool.
>A 4 AM thread is actually superior to what you are suggesting, since at least it has a single purpose (shitposting) and not two purposes.
>advocating for 4 AM threads
Die somewhere really unsafe nigger, they were NEVER good. I do not understand your kind and will never want to.
Shitposting contained to a single thread.
>No you weren't.
Yes I was.
Not even 8chanmania went there which surprised me.
So when is the BO finally going to admit that he isn't actually Italian?
He never said he was italian,he was just using a proxy.
>And silence isn't preferable to garbage, it's worse - and garbage can be converted into at least SOME decent discussion.
From my experience doing things like posting on /pol/ during the height of the Trump election, which was a constantly flowing sea of garbage, no, it really can't. I suppose it's possible your experience may be different, though.
>It's a matter of steering the discussion then, this can be done through skill. You lack that, so you thought police.
Wait, so what is the difference between "steering the discussion through skill" and "thought policing," as it pertains to anons? Now I'm intrigued. I find it interesting that you think I have control enough over your thoughts to somehow police them even though I am not a vol or janitor. Are you scared, anon?
>Die somewhere really unsafe nigger, they were NEVER good. I do not understand your kind and will never want to.
When did I ever say that 4 AM threads were good? "Superior" is a relative term. Shit with corn kernels in is superior to just regular shit as a meal, but neither are good.
Don't doubt our great leader, bellimbusto.
>From my experience doing things like posting on /pol/ during the height of the Trump election, which was a constantly flowing sea of garbage, no, it really can't. I suppose it's possible your experience may be different, though.
So you admit that you MIGHT be wrong? What is the point of this argument if you're not certain?
>Wait, so what is the difference between "steering the discussion through skill" and "thought policing," as it pertains to anons? Now I'm intrigued.
Literally telling a janitor not to allow a single meta thread for general discussion. Thought policing in the context of NOT allowing anons to have a thread to talk about current events in. /cafe/ over on smug/a/ has managed to succeed. So just because anons can shitpost (thanks hoihoi) it should be impossible for them to have a thread?
>When did I ever say that 4 AM threads were good? "Superior" is a relative term. Shit with corn kernels in is superior to just regular shit as a meal, but neither are good.
It was a circlejerk that everyone collectively gave up on. Goal of meta threads like these would be by definition to discuss current happenings OUTSIDE of a gooberglacker thread and without being related to it.
>So you admit that you MIGHT be wrong? What is the point of this argument if you're not certain?
Anecdotal evidence, which is all one person's life experiences amount to, is never valid proof of anything other than that one person experienced it. I said I admit you might have encountered more threads than me where shitposting turned into decent discussion, not that shitposting threads turning into worthwhile discussion is the thing that happens the majority of the time. It may be related to the particular board or something else. For example, I'm fairly sure the amount of shills has something to do with it, because if you're malicious then you will change your angle frequently to try to prevent as much intelligent discussion as possible, regardless of how you'd normally post if you were posting honestly.
>Literally telling a janitor not to allow a single meta thread for general discussion.
You're posting in one right now, though. Your point would be valid if there were a lot of issues that needed to be addressed on a regular basis, but I don't see it that way, so I don't see the need for one. You could also just email the vol. What I really didn't quite understand is your proposal of a dual-purpose "meta and shitpost containment" as opposed to just a "meta" thread. You'd just be discouraging the jannies from reading it.
Also, I do not have any more sway or control over the vol or janitors than you do. In fact I'm not even addressing them, I'm just discussing the idea of making this recurring thread. So it's impossible for me to do any policing as such. It sounds like you're trying to arbitrarily separate my posts from yours as being more evil and influential when we're both anons.
>people want to discuss meta issues at length?
I'm afraid that why anyone would want to do that on a video game board is beyond my understanding.
>You shouldn't report posts in the meta thread, and you can post about meta in reports.
then what the fuck do you want to use it for?
Seven if you include the mod dashboard tabs and this thread, otherwise four.
lol what an retard.
Which one was yours? I got like over a dozen, I'm really popular with the girls :) y-you too
>fuck video games I want a /b/ thread to shitpost in 24/7 on /v/
>then we can get some artificially inflated activity
>that word salad
>YOU ARE MARK
ok I guess, I'll keep the meta for a bit longer and see in which direction it goes, but if things turn into 200% unrelated shit expect a knock on your door by the cyber police because I backtraced your IP just in case.
Why yes, this was missing a post about one of the great unsolved mysteries of mankind: is the faggot administrating the board Italian? Find out in the next episode of "Things no one gives a shit about"
>complaints about jannies
>R U ITALIAN?
That was quick. Meta is a wrap, good job everyone. Now let us all head home lads.
>I'm afraid that why anyone would want to do that on a video game board is beyond my understanding.
If it wasn't outside of the understanding of 10-something different board owners, I have no idea why it is for you.
>then what the fuck do you want to use it for?
Excuse me, what?
If you just want to report a post, report it. There is no need to get the meta thread involved, unless the report also happens to need a discussion. But then you need a meta thread, one that will potentially come around next month.
But nevermind that. This last post of yours was grasping at straws. I would prefer if you voiced your actual concerns with having a non-temporary meta thread, because I feel that "Oh but if you come to the meta thread you're not discussing videogames!" isn't it.
/geimu/ demands that you become a vassal board. You have 47 hours to decide.
SUCK OUR FAT DICKS
But /geimu/ only exists because there was no decent /v/ board for animu users to post it.
If you folks started posting here, then there would be no problem.
>If it wasn't outside of the understanding of 10-something different board owners, I have no idea why it is for you.
because I'm just quirky like that :-)
> I would prefer if you voiced your actual concerns with having a non-temporary meta thread, because I feel that
I already did though, my concern is that it's going to devolve into an excuse to have directionless /b/ thread with a bunch of irrelevant shit, much like LOL threads were, instead of being used why is there a need for a /b/ thread when there's a whole /b/ board you can post on?
I feel that having one at all times would also make it rather unfocused and again, redundant.
>one that will potentially come around next month.
>I can't read
why are you still arguing?
oh, is that so?
We now write a reply to /geimu/, one word at a time, starting from this prompt:
Zchan anons to the /geimu/ BO!
Also, I lost the archive link but apparently 8chan.moe is confirmed for injecting with their captchas. Include this with the fact that smuglo.li's hoihoi contributed to Hotwheels leaving 8chan (thus leading to its eventual demise at the hands of the dataminer) and you've come to realize who the real enemies are.
Not necessarily true. /geimu/ is a new look at /v/ adjusted for the modern times. There are different standards of moderation there than here, which is why the disparity exists. I don't deny that there are some crossposters between us but each board has their own unique/loyal posters.
Don't worry though, Dago. We aren't enemies yet. But if you turn your back on your own userbase then we will be. History tells us that admins and board owners alike start off as heroes and turn into villains. Will you suffer the same fate?
>I have both /geimu/ and zchan/v/ tabs open
>We now write a reply to /geimu/, one word at a time, starting from this prompt:

I said I admit you might have encountered more threads than me where shitposting turned into decent discussion, not that shitposting threads turning into worthwhile discussion is the thing that happens the majority of the time.
You are comparing trends and statistics to attempt to figure out anon's tendencies to either shitpost or not using logic. It's the most idiotic thing that I can think of - humans aren't logical in the first place, they're not machines. If they want to, they will post good things, if they don't want to, they will post bad things. However, it's this board's anons that would post in such a meta thread. You can measure post quality and it's higher here than in cuckchan and twitch chat, therefore even shitposts in meta thread will be of higher standard. It's the ONLY thing that I can be certain of when talking about this using "FACTS AND LOGIC".
>You're posting in one right now, though. Your point would be valid if there were a lot of issues that needed to be addressed on a regular basis, but I don't see it that way, so I don't see the need for one.
You dismiss general discussion about current threads. It would also prevent splitting general non-topical discussion between threads, as you've correctly surmised there isn't nearly enough stuff that would make janitorial involvement necessary.
You could also just email the vol. What I really didn't quite understand is your proposal of a dual-purpose "meta and shitpost containment" as opposed to just a "meta" thread. You'd just be discouraging the jannies from reading it.
They never fucking reply to emails. As for discouraging jannies from reading it, you can always report a post. There's the solution to that problem.
>Also, I do not have any more sway or control over the vol or janitors than you do. In fact I'm not even addressing them, I'm just discussing the idea of making this recurring thread.

You act like a fag and your shit's all retarded.

KGB will fucking kill me and my blood will be on your hands.
Both of you lost the game night, though.
>They never fucking reply to emails.
Hey I read my emails, and I would reply weren't it for the fact all I get is spam because some fucking N I G G E R subbed my address to some shit
>KGB will fucking kill me and my blood will be on your hands.
that's just another drop in the ocean, goy!
>Both of you lost the game night, though.
the jannies won it says so right here >>13277 :^)
>lost the gamenight
Impossible, I participated only in the Doom game night(s) and won 2 of the 3 matches I participated in. I didn't play in anything else. I'd be free to settle the score 1 on 1 with the Italian in any non-/tg/ video game, though.
>I'd be free to settle the score 1 on 1 with the Italian in any non-/tg/ video game, though.
Is this a challenge? You want to throw hands, nigger?
It is. Make no mistake, I will bring honor to my board
As /japan/ tied with the jannies for the last game night, I humbly propose throwing down in Hisoutensoku with one to two weeks of preparation time. Our players are always on hand to help practice with you.
Nigger, I'll fuck you up.
I hate fighting games REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I, too, hate fighting games, but if the Italian agrees to it then I shall face him
It's the first thing that came to mind because fightans are balanced around 1v1 and we have staff (7.5 anons) on hand to ensure fair competition. If both of you can agree on something else, well, pitch ideas, but neither of your boards scored in TTS game night (scrubs) and /japan/ did.
Hey buddy I think you posted the wrong edit of that :^)
I'll play whatever, soku is fine by me even though I hate fightan, I've never played it but I'll train HARD
In fact, to add more to this, I think we should pick a game neither of us ever played before so that it's pure skill with no past knowledge aiding either.
I don't know what "injecting with their captchas" means but it sounds like over-exaggerated bullshit. Are you talking about how they were considering making it possible for moderators to ban by captcha-token for Tor users, to make Tor bans slightly more meaningful since they would have to solve a new CAPTCHA? I don't think that's a big deal, and they haven't done it yet. Zchan doesn't even recognize Tor so Tor endpoints have individual IDs.
Anyhow, if both of you reply that you AGREE to this post, /japan/ will be most pleased to offer you practice with our anons (we need the PPH). We will also stream this shitshow. Our tengu seems to be heavily biased towards /geimu/ so he will no doubt shit on zchan (because of the rules page), but /geimu/ jannied two of my TTS threads and zchan didn't so I'm not biased to prefer one over the other because you're both complete and utter janitors.
Rood as fug, don't bully geimu
>/geimu/ jannied two of my TTS threads
as in deleted the duplicates? You can't really be too mad about three threads. Either way.
I fucking AGREE as long as he's never played the game before either
I don't take kindly to that
In a perfect world that would be the case, yes. We could play soku but I'll have you know I do own a fight stick and two years ago tried Soku but only lasted about two weeks before giving up.
Kime has made it clear he doesn't agree with the fact I have rules so I don't think he'd be biased. Also, what the hell are you talking about? I deleted two board game simulator threads cause there were three in the catalog and I archived the old ones before deleting.
>I deleted two board game simulator threads cause there were three in the catalog and I archived the old ones before deleting.
It's that. In a perfect world, I SHOULD be able to cause board diabetes with 25 Tabletop Simulator threads on any board I post in. But this is not a perfect world. Also, the other guy agreed already, so say yes or no clearly. We have two fags on hand already, ready to host for both of you the second you start asking for games over here https://prolikewoah.com/japan/res/4743.html
Maybe we could just list of possible games from various genres and and then just pick one randomly.
I'll come on your fucking shitty board if we agree on toehoe but from TOMORROW I'm gonna play another video game right now.
Its war then.
>Just keep it on 24/7.
>they usually turn into an excuse to have a /b/ thread
Dude that's exactly the same excuse Mark gave. Don't be Mark. An open meta thread is important when people have an issue they want to discuss.
That's where I and your tengus differ.
We could do that, I was going to suggest we find some common ground in something we both excel at but I am very good at very few things (since I barely play multiplayer games) though if you happen to be confident in your skills in either TF2 or Dawn of War then we can joust it out there with pride on our sides.
I'd be fine with a fighting game but I'd feel I was cheating if we picked Soku since I technically have played it before. How about Melty Blood or King of Fighters?
>I'd be fine with a fighting game but I'd feel I was cheating if we picked Soku since I technically have played it before.
Playing it for two weeks and then dropping it is not any indicator of having skill in something. If you'd feel like cheating, have him practice one or two days more, that's all.
>48 hours is plenty of fucking time
No it's fucking not, and shit changes all the time. 2 spin cycles are not enough, keep it up indefinitely.
>Our tengu seems to be heavily biased towards /geimu/ so he will no doubt shit on zchan
I'm biased towards LIBERTY but /geimu/ and zeech fail to deliver on that front. Both are currently too rulecucked to approach easiness or a semblance of true quality.
♂Ｆｕｃｋ Ｙｏｕ♂ janny.
>Maybe we could just list of possible games from various genres and and then just pick one randomly.
If that lowers the chance I have to play another nigger game then I'm all for it.
I seriously wonder why people bend over everywhere for you.
I liked your julay coverage but ultimately you're someone jaded from moderation because you believe that since very autistic people can ban evade, so technically bans don't matter If I'm confusing you for someone else slap me. And then you let a pedophile preach in your website, granted he didn't post any links to anything law breaking.
gurochan > whatever the fuck is the default theme.
cuck /v/ has 104 posts per minute.
I'd prefer if GamerGate threads were reworked into Vidya News Threads, with more focus on talking about the absolute state of the vidya industry and its dramas than on being a full movement. Right now GG threads here are like bunkers, while the main ones are on 8moe (8/v/ already had 20 GG threads by the time the first one on Z/v/ died), and while GG regulars would bitch at first eventually they would realize that the "replacement" is pretty much the same thing but with less off-topic posting because it would focus only on the vidya industry.
Speaking of liberdy, what happened to Tengu Reich? The site stopped all of sudden along with hoppe-sama and nobody tried to fix them.
Polite sage because meta bitching is gay.
>I'd prefer if GamerGate threads were reworked into Vidya News Threads
That's only playing into the current state they are.
Before they reached their current(absolute) state, Gamergate threads DID post vidya news, but it was to direct digging. That is to say, they weren't posting politics and news in order to discuss them, but in order to figure out who was behind what. Then people that wanted to discuss politics took over.
I would like a return to the former, not the later.
Ultimately? Not really, I'm just sick of censoring myself wherever I go. I also do it for the l*lz.
>And then you let a pedophile preach in your website
I also consistently let rulecucks, shills, tripfags, and tr00nstream regulars preach too. Identity doesn't matter.
I couldn't log in after the first day because the host fucked off while the hard drive filled up lmao. Not the way I expected the ending to happen but I was certain it was doomed from the start. Made myself too big of a target for the sake of a shitpost.
GG is just a circlejerk at this point. They don't really belong here but the backlash of banning/changing them might be worse than just letting them be.
It's funny to hear bending over in the context of not bowing down to unnecessary rules.
You also don't understand that it has nothing to with giving up cleaning up shitposts, but embracing shitposting in it's most sincere form.
Anon, think for a moment.
Are you seriously telling me that we should dump what was the most productive general in 8chan because Mark ruined it?
Its a kneejerk reaction.
The people that diligently searched for information on DiGRA and others are still there. Just make room for them.
Those days are never coming back, at least not under the GG banner. It's too far gone.
Have you even tried?
In any case, don't just drop the matter just because none of you had a spine to directly challenge another to a cockfight of your choosing. If it's not gonna be soku, choose something else and if it will be, you have us to practice with. At least ONE of you has to pick a game.
And at risk of sounding even more DESPERATE, playing it for two weeks is fucking nothing, considering how deckbuilding works in that game and what you can do with it.
Lead the charge then, others will follow.
I'm all for a friendly test of strength. A board owner of a video game board should naturally be good at video games. I'm fine with Soku but I'm also fine with Blazblue or X-turd or KoF - something where I can play as a cute girl. I'll let the Italian choose.
>I couldn't log in after the first day because the host fucked off while the hard drive filled up lmao
Who was retard in charge of configuring the sites? According to the former BO of hoppe-sama the fag disappeared without trace, forcing everyone to move to 8moe.
The host, not only did he manage to kill my board, but also all of the political boards he originally hosted. I can only speculate on why he really left but it was definitely a gay move.
>one month and 3 days
We Finally made it lads I'm soo fucking happy
Yeah /geimu/ anons are good at Doom also should I make a gamenight organization thread ?
Last gamenight there were an issue with two hosts hosting at the same time.
Really liking the atmosphere in here, just would like a little more good games discussed.
If we didn't have a 24/7 meta thread before, the Z-Energy™ meme and all of the OC it created wouldn't exist, just sayin'. If you don't want to make it 24/7 that's fine, but having two meta days a month is pretty gay. I'd at least consider having week-long meta threads on one week, with the following week being meta-less, and the week after that having meta discussion allowed again, etc. So basically 2 weeks a month were anons can post in the meta thread, and two weeks a month were they can't.
And in the 2 weeks with no meta it will spill into other threads if something happens. Just keep it up like every other board does. I thought we were done with this non-transparency shit when we got rid of Mark.
Like I said, I prefer having a 24/7 meta thread, but if Pasta doesn't want to for whatever reason I could live with 2 weeks of metaposting a month, it's WAY better than 2 days.
I don't really care what he wants. What matters is what we want.
That just seems like a stupid compromise made to upset both parties though.
>2 weeks with no meta it will spill into other threads
My rule of thumb is that ever thread is a containment thread of some kind. Removing something won't make it go away, and like you said it'll simply appear elsewhere.
I want Meta Mondays, purely because of the alliteration.
>it’ll appear elsewhere
Not true, if you take away meta threads then you only risk taking away the posters who do nothing but meta post, or they adapt. Pasta should do something like what PLW does and have meta threads exist on their own meta board
The shit you people come up with.
>purely because of the alliteration.
That's what compromises do, by definition. A compromise is a solution where neither party is satisfied. You agree to it because neither of you can get what you want without pissing the other person off.
>He's never seen a compromise which both parties like
That is literally not a compromise. If you have to change your terms in order to reach an agreement, then you aren't satisfied. "Tolerate" is not the same thing as "like." You're talking about a mutually beneficial agreement, which doesn't even require compromise in the first place.
Are you intentionally trying to miss the point? You better not be.
Well, the whole point I'm making is semantic, so I think you're the one missing it.
Imageboards were better when it was just white weebs.
You mean this?
Whenever I see this character, I think of some faggot who's autist ascendant who lives in a world with other people and now he's mad.
I don't really get why anons don't assert dominance over pasta niggeroni and just make meta threads whenever.
Too bad my connection just gets fucking worse every week (thanks T-mobile) and I can't post here too much and spend more of my free time playing semag oediv. Still Snowrunner, but some Receiver 2 now as well.
Imageboards were better without social media
>I don't really get why anons don't assert dominance over pasta niggeroni and just make meta threads whenever.
Most likely because they're like me and don't see any need to. Why assume that everyone is always outraged?
>he doesn't realize there a group of people that are here not to post in kinship but to purely create meta drama
This was going fine without a meta thread BO,you fucked up,now every autistic shitposter will make one whenever they feel like.
Summer is in full swing plus it had a jump start thanks to the quarantine. A lot of edgy 12 year olds that think any sort of reaction at all is "le epic win ecks dee" as the highlight of comedy.
>This was going fine without a meta thread BO
Maybe you were lucky enough to not be in the threads without any meta talk flowing in.
>Being a GG nigger
Die in a fire.
>Being a julayfag
This. If anything, this is a good reason against constant meta threads. They attract absolute cancerposters who want to backseat admin. Just look at any dedicated meta board, it's always a complete shitshow.
Summerfaggotry was always a myth and doubly so on zchan of all places. Barely anyone even knows about this place, do you seriously think we're attracting kids on summer vacation?
>this is a good reason against constant meta threads
No, it's a boogeyman that people who don't want meta threads use an excuse. Even if there was a shitposter who only posted in the meta thread the board owner could easily root them out via their post history, retard.
How the fuck is something that happened on literally every major meta board a boogieman, you nigger?
I see you never went on /sudo/
We're talking about a thread here, not a whole board. That's a completely different beast.
Grasp at straws faster faggot.
>Ever major meta board
Can you name a few?
I mean, I looked at meta threads within other boards on the webring and everything seemed fine. But surely meta board drama will ring up something relevant.
>Check post history to see what the actual issues are about
What are the real issues and why aren't you posting them?
The only issue I have right now is the BO being a slippery cunt on the issue of the meta thread. He left it up indefinitely on fatchan, and then he starts talking about making one every 15 days, and now he's saying only 48 hours. How long until "meta threads will be bumplocked :^)"
If I wanted a shitty BO I would go to markchan, so I'm not conceding this issue.
Am I supposed to make a list of all the big meta boards back on 8chan or what?
There is definitely a middle ground between "Not having a permanent meta thread" and "Mark." Again, if it was as bad as Mark, more people would be asking for one. Clearly the other posters on this board don't seem to agree with you.
I mean if you're going to claim a lot of meta boards are being torn down by drama then yes, I am interested in seeing at least a few.
So you're being a disingenious faggot, as I suspected. The boards weren't migrated during the 8kum disaster and you know that.
I'm not being disingenious, I just thought you weren't retarded and as usual, that is a mistake.
You realize there are multiple meta boards up? This website has one. Other websites(Prolikewoah, smugloli, etc) have too.
>This website has one.
Yes, and it's explicitly only about technical issues, so nothing like a /v/ meta thread because pastanigger and zdmin are different people.
Are both self-hosted, and once you remove the stuff related to that you're left with people screeching about being banned and backseat modding. Also Esther-like drama, but that would warrant its own thread anyway. You can stop pretending to be retarded now.
>You can stop pretending to be retarded now.
But sadly, you can't.
>you're left with people screeching about being banned and backseat modding.
Oh no, meta talk on meta.
Better than a retard going to the same non-meta thread he was in and asking why he was banned.
Some Ubermensch taste you got there, pal.
But you should've posted Sounds Like A Melody instead.
Don't loose them again, kid.
Also, BO, if you accept the terms then we shall duke it out in Soku. We both have two weeks preparation. Let's have the bout on Monday, the 13th of July. If you agree then you are committing yourself to it - I will not ask you to make any oaths as my only oath is to the Lord, but I will expect you to participate.
If you agree before this thread dies, then the fight is officially on.
Shake my hand and we begin preparation for our lauded duel.
Btw if you win you'll earn a Mark since soku is for autists.
Come on anon, don't be silly, we all know Mark is fucking horrible at video games. No one who wins should be compared to him.
Mark never played in any of our sokunigger tourneys but he DID ruin one of them by bitching about meta when the finals were running t. organizer-in-chief
soku IS for autists, but I'd rather have an autistic board owner than a powertripping faggot
How many people are cross-posting between the moe /v/ and this one? I'm concerned that spreading ourselves thin is lowering activity, which in turn keeps me going back and forth out of boredom. It's a vicious cycle, but I can't break it alone.
Should I advise everyone to move over here?
Yes. Fuck Mark, delete Mark.
Don't fucking advertise. I want a higher PPH, but you must consider the population of kike/v/.
No you mouth drooling retard do you fucking realize that they have cuckfaggots around them right now? Cuckniggers are the only people I know that constantly say BASED! and post wojaks and pepes. That place is just radioactive but there is some anons that are obviously from the migration. They're a lost cause but if they are worth it they know to lurk here.
Everyone over there already knows, anon, it's impossible not to. For whatever reasons, they'll choose to either crosspost (in which case you're not changing anything) or post only there because they hate this place (in which case you're not changing their mind).
If you want to convince people to use this place, ensure that threads don't get derailed and then deleted. Ensure that the site and quality of threads and posts is actually better.
It's sort of like the Linux argument. You're not gonna get somebody to use Linux just by saying "Microsoft bad", you instead have to show people how using the alternative actually benefits them. In the same way, to people who don't see Mark as big enough a problem or don't care, you're not going to change their minds by just saying "Mark bad".
It doesn't help that between the numerous instances of shilling on Cakemoe (that the BO here insists is from third parties but is impossible to verify one way or another) and the hatred many anons here have of that site, many Cakemoe posters already have their minds made up and wouldn't give enough of a fuck to listen to you anyway.
>being this new
Cakekike literally bans people for posting that. That was one of the complaints some actually had with him, though I'd argue it was the only good thing he had ever done in terms of moderation. I've seen about as much of that there as I do here, which is to say barely and mostly ironic. The biggest problem they have with moderation is the fact that, seemingly, Mark's the only one actually moderating /v/ so blatant spam threads will stay up for hours.
>ensure that threads don't get derailed and then deleted
>not post good content instead
>Ensure that the site and quality of threads and posts is actually better.
Read my post again, I mentioned that.
And good content doesn't mean shit if it gets lost in the shuffle of hundreds of posts by two retards going on increasingly verbose tirades that just boil down to ten paragraphs worth of "no u".
>He left it up indefinitely on fatchan, and then he starts talking about making one every 15 days, and now he's saying only 48 hours. How long until "meta threads will be bumplocked :^)"
Not only is that wrong, you're talking about a different context. Fat /v/ ran for less than half the time than Zyklon /v/, it had four times the users and was caught in the eye of a massive shitstorm. On Fat/v/ we had exactly 2 meta threads plus the cyclical drama containment, which isn't any different than here bar from the fact I bumplocked the drama containment, considering the drama well dried up, and that the meta threads too a bit longer to reach post limit. Also as I already mentioned in this post >>13425 I actually planned to keep them up for just one (1) day instead of two, so you should be very thankful goy. I literally don't see what''s wrong with 48 hours of meta, you can go all out during those 24 hours, I personally believe I 12 hours is the perfect monthly amount, so just take your 6 hours and shut up. See you within 6 months on the next meta.
NO MORE MARKS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MY WALLS ARE ALREADY FULL
Yes, that's what I wanted, thanks anon.
Take the comfy pill anon, embrace the low activity and forget the pph counter exists.
>It doesn't help that between the numerous instances of shilling on Cakemoe (that the BO here insists is from third parties but is impossible to verify one way or another)
I AM AN INNOCENT REPEAT TARGET VICTIM OF CHARACTER ASSASSINATION AND CRUCIFIXION TO SHUT ME UP FOREVER WITH MY SECRETS
I like the way you think, can I interest you in a very serious job?
The game is on, it's a gentlemen's challenge.
>NO MORE MARKS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MY WALLS ARE ALREADY FULL
You have like, 6 marks total.
>bans people for that
He never fucking did it as much as he did back in 8chan and better yet he would word filter cuckchan words into ours so you wouldn't be able to bully the fucking newfag. For example normies was word filtered to newfag. My point still stands that he shouldn't fucking advertise in that god forsaken place. They already had shitters posting their links on 4cuck and 9gagchan it's still not worth it.
Come to think of it, you guys are right. It's best for board activity to flow naturally. Trying to force a change probably wouldn't have positive results. It's settled then. I won't advertise. Thanks for your answers.
I agree that we shouldn't advertise on 4chan but what can you do.
zchan is known in 8moe. In fact, posts about it are nearly all over the place. Same as a month ago, we were discussing how we shouldn't advertise on 8moe while their meta thread was talking about us normally.
It was filtered to normalfag and half the time the crossposter would also be visibly confused over the word getting changed which would then out him, resulting in the bullying.
Have you forgot already how fat Mark is?
Can we address the Infinity Cup thing here and now while the meta thread still up, zchan going to be represented in the cup as a join team with cakemoe, i don't know if most people here actually want that or it's just the crossposter pushing this decision, if not many people here actually care about the cup might as well withdraw from it like /geimu/.
I don't think the Infinity Cup has even been mentioned on Cakemoe so I have no clue who's pushing for that.
I do know that one anon suggested joining with /geimu/ to form the /v/alkans and someone who claimed to be organizing it shoehorning cakechan into the team like he was doing us a favor. If that's the shit we'd be dealing with forget it.
huh, that kike actually deleting the infinity cup thread on 8moe.
Join team with /geimu/ is my preferred arrangement too, but they don't seems to care much about the cup, so i think we better withdraw from it like /geimu/ rather than get represented there with cakemoe.
Why not just have a dedicated meta/circlejerk thread on /meta/? Or maybe one thread for general imageboard meta discussion and another for /v/ meta discussion specifically? The board is literally called /meta/ so discussion about the meta of this board and imageboards in general would make sense. That way it's contained off of this board and doesn't taint the discussions but people can still get their fix of drama autism as well as talk about the state of the board and any ideas they might have.
This ephemeral GOTTA GO FAST meta discussion shit just seems fucking stupid and makes no sense in the context of a board as slow paced as this one. And it's clearly just produced a shitty /b/ thread rather than any productive meta discussions. I hadn't even bothered to refresh the catalogue in 2 days I didn't realize this thread was even happening until just now.
Nobody except meta obsessed autists and shit stirring outsiders will go there and thus only they learn about and discuss meta topics regarding the board.
>zchan is known in 8moe
>but what can you do
DELETE THE NI/GG/ERCATTLE THREADS and replace them with general about discussing videogame news and articles.
If that won't send a clear 'Fuck you ,you're not welcome here' message to them then i don't know what would.
And how is that any different from this thread right now?
The average /v/ user will see it. I didn't say this format is good either.
Then people should start using other boards. People insulating themselves into only 1 or 2 boards is becoming an issue, which results in off-topic bullshit being discussed. People really need to learn to click on other boards.
That's stupid when it comes to meta regarding this board specifically. You're asking literally every zchan user to start regularly going to /meta/. I agree with telling people to go to the correct board if the topic is unrelated to /v/, for example off topic shit going to /b/, but meta is different because it's directly related to /v/ and only /v/ and directly affects this board.
Also /v/ BO can't ban people from a meta thread in /meta/.
No, you're asking some of the few dozen people that post here to have a single tab open in their browser with the meta thread from /z/. The people that are invested enough to care will be aware of it and retards just passing through won't see it on the /v/ catalogue and decide to jump in and start posting random /b/ tier bullshit like they've done with this thread. The entire point of having it on /z/ is that it's hidden and out of the way and only used when people have very specific meta issues or ideas, and that they can be confident the BO checks up on it at least every once in awhile.
Could always just make him a volunteer on the board.
Also it's becoming apparently ironic that we're debating having open and transparent lines of communication with moderation when one of the single biggest issues people took with cake/v/ was cakekike just randomly making meta threads then randomly deleting them after an arbitrary length of them, yet after cakekike stopped this asinine behavior we're seeing it manifest here.
I agree that meta threads can cause issues and siphon activity away from on-topic threads, which is why I think using /z/ is a good compromise.
>only used when people have very specific meta issues or ideas
Uh huh and when you have some epic meta idea like "let's invite /r/videogames for activity" and start discussing it in /z/, how will the average /v/ user (who just wants to talk about videogames) find out about that topic and can voice their opinion about it before you ruin their board for them? They can't unless they're all always using /meta/.
The way you speak about "using /meta/ (/z/)" is like someone that doesn't understand how internet browsers or websites work. Literally the only difference to 99% of people will be that their tab says /z/ instead of /v/ followed by the thread topic. If you care about the meta issues of /v/ then have the thread open and participate in it. This is what I mean when people are fucking retarded for not being capable of browsing or paying attention to other boards. /z/ is literally two clicks away, you're not traversing the fucking ocean to deliver a letter.
The admin doesn't want /v/ meta on /z/.
Then call this my attempt at changing his mind. Too bad the thread will be deleted.
When I say /meta/ I mean /z/.
You're assuming everyone uses the internet the same way you do. For instance I don't clutter my browser with tabs to anywhere unless I currently care about it. Most of the time I'm working on my projects and only periodically loop through all the places I care about and check the webring list for boards that had activity. I don't want to clutter my browser with 700 meta threads for every place I go to.
>If you care about the meta issues of /v/ then have the thread open and participate in it
I don't give a shit. Meta shouldn't even be a thing unless there's a problem that needs addressing. You sound like one of those meta obsessed autists who think there needs to be a perpetual meta.
Make a meta thread in /v/ if there's an actual issue that needs to be discussed. When the topic is addressed, bumplock or lock or delete the thread depending on how relevant it is afterwards. Someone shitting up a thread isn't a meta topic by the way, the report function exists for a reason.
>bump a thread off of the board every time you want to make a meta related comment
Well at least you've finally outed yourself as a fucking retard so I can get back to playing games instead of furthering this conversation.
>if there's an actual issue that needs to be discussed
The whole point of having a permanent meta thread is so people have somewhere to go if they want to discuss an issue, without making a whole new thread.
Oh noooo that one single thread a the bottom of the catalog that was about to fall off anyway, the board is ruined!
its till important, although dated. it needs to remain up as a reminder of journalist malfeasance. also, there was some pretty good drops back when that shit was going on, specifically with regards to the leaked list of (((jurnos))) that were collaborating with each other to black list people from the industry. however, there should only be one thread. nobody needs multiple threads of that shit
It's not important and will never be important. Just a bunch of trannies circle jerking in their own club house no one else wants to enter. The thread would be better named something like "Shit storm central" or "Drama in vidya". Keep it for a place to whine about current events but no one cares about trannies.
I'm not bitching tranny. I'm saying it's not remotely relevant and the thread would be better repurposed into a general vidya drama thread. Give people a reason to visit it instead of just the trannies with no where else to go.
>GG is here to stay
I highly doubt that seeing as they've split their loyalties in two and if really pressed would rather stay with fedchan.
If I were the BO I'd be watching my back for knives approaching.
Man you've really got to change your wording, it's really easy to profile your posts.
Here we go. Lay it on me, lad.
List me all the bad apples who have called you names and tell us all how you used your CSI skills to link it all back to me.
You went on the same ramblings on r9k when you were told no one cares about your autistic vendetta against the fa/gg/ots. When you were told to fuck off you started going on about ominous back stabbing and "you will see".
I'm not a robot, nor do I post there.
I know it's difficult for you to believe there is more than one person who is not in favor of GG related anything on this board.
The jew over on fedchan is a habitual backstabber, something even you no matter how much you want to defend GG have to come to terms with.
The fact that anyone from GG decided to follow him at all over there is reason enough to be skeptical and cautious.
I'm not talking out my ass either, fatchan went down and not by mere coincidence.
What the fuck is fedchan? Do you meant 8kunt or markchan?
Well it's not Markchan since it's run by Acid.
Acid is even worse than Mark is. And has way more ties to GG and feds.
Lots of people don't like GG because it's full of sketchy faggots and grifters. Everyone of value has moved on already and it's just the lonely desperate people wanting a "community" left.
I hate cakekike probably more than you do, but claiming that just having GG threads here is going to result in some sort of "backstabbing" is just schizo posting. It doesn't even make sense. Just be like the rest of us and fantasize about gouging marks eyes out without posting about spooky 4D chess.
Fedchan generally refers to 8moe, which is ran by an arms dealer who sells guns to feds. 8kun is generally referred to as 8glow, or not referred to at all because literally no one uses it or remembers that it even exists.
>just randomly making meta threads then randomly deleting them after an arbitrary length of them, yet after cakekike stopped this asinine behavior we're seeing it manifest here.
He gave an exact deadline for the thread to exist. I don't really care as long as he sticks to his word. Inconsistency in moderation is the annoying part.
Never really understood where this "think of the threads" as if they were children mindset came from, if the thread wasn't shit or inactive it wouldn't be on the last page. To be blunt, I don't even typically check back that far. This isn't halfchan /v/ where threads travel a mile a minute if they're not constantly being shitpost in. Focused threads are always better than generals, and threads are supposed to die in a reasonable time period.
>It doesn't even make sense
You allow them to set up a camp on the site, knowing who they actually pledge their loyalty to. As long as they cling to the GG name, it will forever associate them with the likes of Acid and Mark who have a site running for them specifically.
Over here we have left that behind.
We've seen that Mark specifically handed out special treatment to them and I have no doubts in my mind that some of them made it into vol positions, eating the board from the inside out.
Being cautious is not being a schizo.
The point is that if every time someone had a question or proposition for the BO and they didn't want to email him and instead made a thread, the catalog would constantly have shitty random meta threads plastered on it. At that point you might as well just have a dedicated meta thread on the board itself.
Pledge loyalty? Jesus christ. As I recall the ni/gg/ers were "loyal" to wherever the PPH was, and at one point that was fat/v/. The GG thread there was more active than the GG thread on fedchan. The GG threads here are actually moderately effectively so I don't have an issue with them as they rarely veer off-topic, and if they do a mod usually deletes the offending posts.
Ni/gg/ers in general are cancerous sure, but their cancer is contained on 8moe, the only thing that slips through to us and our GG threads is actually video game news.
>Being cautious is not being a schizo.
Going around saying "we" are going to get "backstabbed" by having a thread about video game news isn't being cautious. I don't think you know what that word means. It's literally just schizo or d&c posting.
>The point is that if every time someone had a question or proposition for the BO and they didn't want to email him and instead made a thread, the catalog would constantly have shitty random meta threads plastered on it.

And yet it isn't right now? Where do you get the idea that this will happen, exactly? If there were really meta issues that needed to be brought up that badly, then anons would post the threads you described and not give a shit about the rules, because the issues would be perceived as more important. I don't think a lot of those threads are being made and then deleted. Again, I think most of the meta thread proponents in this thread really seem to overestimate how many people want or need to post about meta issues.
>is actually video games news
Then there is no reason to continue labeling it GG threads if actual GG threads are the cancer you speak of.
Who exactly? I'm advocating to not live a repeat of what happened to fatchan. Again, it sure is convenient that the site with a more active GG thread is nuked and they go crawling back to fedchan, the one single thing Mark has left.
>Then there is no reason to continue labeling it GG threads if actual GG threads are the cancer you speak of.
I don't disagree with this. I've never understood the GG brand or its alleged necessity.
>I'm advocating to not live a repeat of what happened to fatchan.
Fatchan going down had nothing to do with GG, stop being retarded.
Mark has been accused of doing shit to take down viral image boards since the web ring launched. And he did give special treatment to the GG trannies. He's desperate to cling to the name and be "relevant" because he's such a loser. I wouldn't call it being schizo but there's not much evidence for it, just knowing the people involved and the rumours around the ring.
A constant meta threads better than e-mailing. Better for discussions to be in public.
>If I were the BO I'd be watching my back for knives approaching.
There are quite a few knives in the hands of the people that want the gamergate thread dead.
I don't know why some people are dedicated to shitposting in the GG thread and then coming here and claiming that those shitposts they made are a reason to delete the thread, but if we give them what they want, they'll try it again with the next thread they don't like.
And gayops are for blatant homos.
It always starts with hints and allegations, but more often than not shit does hit the fan in the end and people get dragged into it.
Much like the way Julay fell apart from the inside as far as I can tell.
Doing away with the name is essentially what I am advocating for.
I see no reason to associate this site's /v/ with GG at all.
Vidya news are more than welcome, but those are not dependent on whether or not the thread they are posted in has the GG moniker attached to it.
I've already said what I thought about this idea here >>13517 and here >>13415 and a few other times in this thread.
Curiously, the BO has not replied to any posts regarding GG once. I await warmly.
As far as I remember he wanted a hand-off type of approach but make sure they get no special treatment. A good way to handle it, I'm just saying my piece on the issue out of concern, because allowing them to claim space on here to essentially take over what could be a thread that replaces them with just vidya news is in a way better treatment than they should get.
Look, lemme repeat myself.
The thread wasn't supposed to be about "vidya news". That's what it became in the last few years.
Your idea would just make a excellent thread for the current GG shitposters on 8moe, even though that's the opposite of what you want.
Julay was run by Hotwheel's friends from /cow/ It was never going to last.
The problem is the GG name alienates a lot of people. I don't go to GG threads, I have no reason to. They're full of losers who can't let the past go. Who think they took down Gawker and other non-sense. I would go to a thread about vidya news and drama that didn't deserve it's own thread. NTDDTOT would be an ideal set up. The issue is while GG remains it will be where some of the news is posted and that cripples other threads trying to do the same.
If we do away with the name, it can be a vidya news thread.
What they really want is the name and not the news.
A thread for news without the name attached to it, they will oust themselves immediately as shitposters if they try to derail the thread to their usually topics.
The people doing the legwork in those threads have long disappeared, seeing what it was turning into.
One of the many reasons I see no need to even bother catering to them here at all.
That is also a good point.
But we don't even need a thread about vidya news "that don't deserve their own thread". What the hell are people going to share there, a new archive from the latest post in Kotaku? Most important news deserve their own thread in, my experience.
Either way I've already described why the idea is bad. If it really bothers you that much, how about naming it a "Digging Thread" or something of the like?
>The people doing the legwork in those threads have long disappeared,
You really need to train your object permanency.
>Stupid weeaboo doesn't understand why drama and title updates don't need their own thread but have people who might discuss them.
Kill yourself you waste of oxygen.
It's an amazing (((coincidence))) how the overall post quality dropped like an atom bomb in the two days this thread had existed.
I don't know who's to blame, but I don't like it.
>The problem is the GG name alienates a lot of people.
So does "Chan". So does saying Bethesda games are shit. We're not supposed to be "welcoming" you stupid nigger. We're supposed to be honest discussion of video games.
Whenever I glanced at the GG general past like 2015, it was almost entirely just people sitting around, drawing fan-art of themselves, not furthering their supposed goals, and getting really mad and calling you a shill if you pointed this out. Just saying.
That's all it's ever really bean. It's a bunch of gossiping drama queens (actually kings) who do nothing but post screen caps of websites and share porn. It's discord in thread for.
We just had a fucking gacha thread and a ((STEAM SALES)) thread in two days,fuck you jannies this is all your fault for allowing these niggers.
Steamed sales are to be expected since it's summer. That thread was also bumplocked when it turned into shitflinging. As for the gacha thread, it was deleted.
Do you think it's coincidence that these kinds of threads pop up after you make a meta atracting faggots? ALL THE OP'S DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO USE SPOILERS.
>That thread was also bumplocked when it turned into shitflinging
Now it's gotten back mostly on track, or at the very least there are fewer shitposters. If the shitflinging was a problem, then that's what should be deleted. There's genuine discussion happening, even if it is meandering, and it's not fair to the OP that his thread is bumplocked because of a group of niggers who came looking to get mad about stuff.
>the board's retarded markup indicates that other people come here
Yes, they have. That's the point of the webring. If this website were isolated then if it were taken down, nobody would be able to go anywhere else.
Frankly, there should be some kind of plan for such an event, but that's a different story.
>Do you think it's coincidence that these kinds of threads pop up after you make a meta atracting faggots?
Not really. We didn't have blatant newfags in the previous meta thread. I'd say this was a bad coincidence.
>If the shitflinging was a problem, then that's what should be deleted.
Here's the issue, that thread turned into shitflinging from literally the first post. One group shat on OP for being a buyfag, and the other side defended him. Buying games, and from Steam especially, is a very controversial topic in imageboards. If we started deleting posts in that thread it would be seen as if we were taking a side, and that would be real bad. You could argue that we should have deleted ALL the posts, but that would be the same as siding with the OP (Buying games, and from steam). So we decided to simply bumplock the thing.
>Frankly, there should be some kind of plan for such an event
There kind of is. Site owner made this in case of an emergency so that everyone can stay updated of the situation. https://www.minds.com/zchan/
>ALL THE OP'S DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO USE SPOILERS.
Don't act like everyone didn't fuck that up when they got here the first time they used spoilers.
Imagine thinking anyone reads the faq of a site they post on.
This is why meta threads don't stay up, its all just bitching about GG.
>If we started deleting posts in that thread it would be seen as if we were taking a side, and that would be real bad
I suppose that makes sense.
>Summerfaggotry was always a myth
Except it wasn't. Summer had a lot of lower quality posting, mainly because underage fags didn't have to go to kindergarden. But yeah, summerfags aren't really a problem in here.
Advertising only give off a bad image in other imageboards. I mean, I've been browsing other IBs myself and I've seen a retard advertising in a lot of of them. Just let zchan get mentioned naturally, it works just like the webring does now or the bunkers did then, if people are interested in finding us, they will. Plus, ads mainly attract the wrong kind of people.
Both of those instances the people complaining about the thread were far more obnoxious than the content of the thread itself. People who go out of there way to backseat moderate and shitflinging about a thread are far more destructive than anything else at this point. Its at a point where people will refrain from posting new threads about anything out of fear of people driving threads into the dirt because it doesn't fit an autistic form of meta.
I don't know how to spoiler on any image board and I've been on them for decades now. Too many homes and too little use.
Image boards attract the worst kind of people. Self obsessed faggots with infinite free time because all they do is watch anime all day. They shit up every thread they touch with their autism and unless mods remove then have more time than any one else to control the boards direction. They're human upvotes on Reddit.
Noted, we'll handle things better next time
Here are my two shekels on metafaggotry:
Meta threads only should be made when something serious is happening on the board, like a change in the rules, a hotpockets abusing their power, a board/site on the webring imploding or an active raid done by an external group, otherwise you'll end with a general full of babies whining about things they don't like and blatant off-topic stuff (just look at this thread for example). Small stuff like a retard shitting up a thread or GG being derailed for the 11th time can be dealt with detailed reports, while feature requests can be made on /z/ without problem.
I think they should be fairly regular, but you're right about them getting shat up. Maybe they should only be 24 hours like originally intended
>Maybe they should only be 24 hours
That's the worst solution. Anyone who isn't monitoring the board frequently will miss them, and the people who are obsessed with the board will be overrepresented without any chance for second opinions.
There are rules retarded monkey nigger,if you took your time to read them your threads wouldn't be deleted
Just delete the rules if you are not going to enforce them anymore.
He's right on people leaving or not making threads. I made a thread, just a bunch of retards posted in it and I left the board for ages. If I make a thread and all I get is the retards Mark or however banned from the bigger webring boards I have no reason to use this /v/ over another /v/.
Niche image boards suffer from idiots banned from every where else turning up. They need a good stick to keep in line or you end up with so many bad apples the board becomes unusable.
Something isn't right here. maybe I was wrong and these threads do attract more fags
>hey should be fairly regular
Why? Nothing big enough has happened to deserve a meta thread. This thread, for example, is full of the same old people complaining about mods not deleting things they don't like, the eternal debate about GG being a containment thread that should/n't be deleted, people talking about what 8moe does (as if there were no meta boards there), and discussion about how long the meta threads should last. Things are too calm here to have constant meta threads that only serve to create drama, hence why these kinds of threads should only be created when something actually happens.
>Go check the Users amount in 8chan
>It doesn't have one
Anyways if the user count didn't increase that's just people posting more often.
Called it,you should be more strict not more lax.
That's why I suggested they should be regular. If everyone knows when it will be, then you shouldn't miss it when it happens.
What counts as something happening?
Can only speak for myself, but I don't bother making threads because the games I would like to discuss just aren't apt to be of interest to warrant more than a few posts on at this point anyhow. So I just stick to broader, still-applicable threads for such.
>What counts as something happening?
Things that may affect the entire board and not just a small part of it, like a decent bulk of people (and not just the few meta regulars) wanting a change in the rules and/or moderation, the BO or admin making an announcement, a migration of users to this board because another site died, people finding organized retards making active efforts at destroying /v/, collaborations with other boards and sites, etc. When meta threads stay up for too long they devolve into a second report button, people whining to get [thing they personally don't like] banned and off-topic drama about the site and the webring.
>Just delete the rules if you are not going to enforce them anymore.
Nowhere did I imply that the rules won't be enforced
See? Look at the thread. Now imagine this going on 24/7.
Wait a second.
>The fucking WEEBS are shitting up this website I CAN'T handle them AAAA-
>Gamergate was NEVER good they NEVER did anything
>FUCK YOU FUCK YOU YOU SHOULD HAVE DELETED THREAD I DID NOT LIKE
Some backstory on this one, julay usually preferred to moderate their board by deleting entire threads if someone was shitposting on them, instead of deleting the shitposters, since that was "micromanaging" or some shit. Other than that, julay hating anime and gamergate isn't anything new.
This is gayops by you and your Julay friends, isn't it? The stances you take align perfectly.
That's not an argument. Any janny sympathizers must be shown no mercy, lest they take over vital institutions and take over positions of power.
Read the rules.
>Wait a second.
Dynamic IPs, dumbass. It changes daily.
>This is gayops by you and your Julay friends, isn't it?
No, you're just an idiot.
Oh yeah, I'm sure all the signs are pure coincidence. I'm stunned by your reply, anon.
I uninstalled Sin o Alice. It was shit.
I don't give a shit about what stuns you. I didn't even say anything about GG you mong.
>I didn't even say anything about GG you mong.
What, are you 49cd3a?
Stop gibing schizo atention.
>This coming from the massive shitposter who was screaming that a thread didn't get deleted
You forgot *attention
Are you idol nigger? Stop.
Check the post I quoted. Check what was the only ID that post of yours replied to.
I just can't stop biting.
>Check what was the only ID that post of yours replied to.
I can't check the "only" ID of a post that replied to 3 different IDs. Look at >>14171 yourself.
29e534 (First reply)
49cd3a (Second through fifth)
17949e (Sixth and Seventh)
Do you have actual brain damage?
You're the one slipping over your own attempts to be obtuse. Please, think harder.
>I didn't even say anything about GG you mong.
I didn't say anyone was complaining about GG, other than in >>14171 , so you shouldn't be referring to any other post.
>>13999 (oh baby a triple)
>Curiously, the BO has not replied to any posts regarding GG once. I await warmly.
I have, a dozen of times, in pretty much every meta since Fat/v/ even before I claimed /v/ there, and I keep repeating the same shit.
I thought this issue was pretty much closed considering I have addressed it in a crystal clear manner in the past, but alas.
I'm neutral towards gamergay, and again for the nth time, I'm neither forcing a name change or banning them.
Its someone else's fault for being retarded and demanding I come here to address it.
It could be (100) and it wouldn't matter, it someone else's fault.
You're alright pastanon. The hateboners for /gg/ here can get ridiculous. The thread here feels more like a neat outpost while the bulk of discussions happen in 8moe. Stop seething over a name and chill out. Wait for the thread here to hit bump limit and make the next one with a different name. I don't think Mark or Acid would object to that (without looking like assholes). For me, I will lurk here to hang out with the anons who post gamenights here but not there. It's an inconvenience not to have every thread under one board as before, albeit a minor one worth putting up with.
>julay usually preferred to moderate their board by deleting entire threads if someone was shitposting on them, instead of deleting the shitposters, since that was "micromanaging" or some shit
But that's wrong.
Why would anyone here care what Mark or Acid thinks?
He sounds like a markchan crossposter.
I hope we can get a gamenight running for Renegade X.
Just so I'm aware, which is the Cakechan? 8chan.moe, not 8chan.se, right?
Those domains direct to the same website anon.
Can /v/ mods handle global reports? I ask because cp was posted on /b/ 4 hours ago and it's still up, and since there's only one side-wide admin apparently, it hasn't been removed yet. Would you be alright with being able to handle Global Reports in case the Z-Energy CEO is abscent? Seriously, /v/ is the only board with good moderation. Shit, I don't want to be a mod, but I'd be okay with being one just to be able to remove shit like that. Unfortunately I think the CEO doesn't want to hire jannies for fear of hiring a power-tripping retard.
That game is kinda neat but the maps are a little too linear, it feels like you're playing an ASSFAGGOTS as one of the creeps. I am looking forward to their Tiberium Sun-based sequel Firestorm, though. That one looks to have a lot more movement options for getting around terrain.
The thread acomplished nothing,well done BO.
>discussion between anons and the moderation accomplished nothing
It accomplished plenty. Why are you disappointed?
How does a Virtuous Anon respond to a shitpost? Do you hide it, report it, tell them to lurk moar, or simply ignore it?
If by virtuous, you mean cares about the state of the board more than himself, he ignores it or makes a point of engaging a relevant post of discussion in the thread to drown it out. If you're like me, a faggot who is obsessed with getting retards to argue with him just to see how stupid their arguments can get, you engage them and create a sideshow in the thread.
>How does a Virtuous Anon respond to a shitpost?
>If you're like me, a faggot who is obsessed with getting retards to argue with him just to see how stupid their arguments can get, you engage them and create a sideshow in the thread.
You don't, but it's like democracy, everyone has to know how to handle it or it won't work.
Only for REAL SHITPOST HOURS and to avoid GETTING A PROMOTION
Only for illegal shit e.g. CP and to make requests from BO/vols like stickying a thread
>tell them to lurk moar
Optimal, but some posters (e.g. ADHD, low-functioning autism, brittle bone disease) just can't be persuaded.
>simply ignore it
This doesn't solve the root of the problem and makes the board even more dead.
The most optimal solution is
with copious amounts of FUN involved. It may not always be possible, but this is the wisdom of Imageboard Elders that have faithfully persevered for more than 11 years for the sake of OC and shitposts.
Very nice. Well done.
Mark Mann is a jewcy boi.
Pastanig i got some very echoing info from some kikemoe poster that you are a julayfag tranny care to comment?
>outrageous baseless accusations
>proof: not included
Yes, indeed, add that to the list:
>some guy who made share threads
>now a tranny
Give it time, he'll have flaps before his disease kills him.
>I'm neutral towards gamergay
Do you know what i find to be the most tiring aspect of it all?It's the constant lying from the admins and the mods regardless of what place i visit.It's the same ol' story every single time just with a few name changes..
Do you think that with posts like these >>6629 you can convince anyone of your self-proclaimed neutrality?
Any other thread that had attracted the kind of shittery that your favorite pets do currently you would've nuked from orbit not once but twice for good measure and yet you make special exceptions and constant excuses for these retards even going as far as
<fuck OC,delete OC
<as long as gaygayt bread exists that's all that matters
and then have the gall to proclaim neutrality when you're so clearly entrenched in one side?
Blow it out your ass,you're as nootral as Israel has been in it's entire history of existence .
I don't think he'd survive the procedure.
>Delete a thing because I don't like it
I've read this post 3 times already and i sill can't understand his point.
<fuck OC,delete OC
<as long as gaygayt bread exists that's all that matters
who are you quoting?
>and then have the gall to proclaim neutrality when you're so clearly entrenched in one side?
>you don't want to delete x, therefore it means you love x
It was a little depressing when the board was just niggerpill and 3 other people. But it grew nicely, has some autistic but good rpg discussion.
I assume he means that one time when someone posted our orange anon variant of george floyd getting wind pipe'd on the ni/gg/er thread on moe, which proceeded to have a bunch of D&C faggots who are probably still there mind you yelling all sorts of shit from "t-they're no better from c-c-cuckchan!" thinking that we for some reason have to still have red anon no matter what even though the color change stemmed from a joke.
It's pretty impressive how in a few months we've managed to get a pretty consistend and unique board culture, at least in comparsion with 8moe. I mean, just the Z-Energy shit is a goldmine of OC.
Are you assuming this place is clean of them?
Because similar sentiments pop up here relatively often.
>It's pretty impressive how in a few months we've managed to get a pretty consistend and unique board culture
All this place has so far is one template and some gas store employee shit as far as being unique from 8/v/ pre-shutdown or even 8kuck /v/. As far as general culture goes this place is the same besides some really heavy handed elitism from some fags.Except maybe the /geimu/ rivalry,that shit's actually fun.
People like to forget that 8/v/ had a lot more than "fuck cuckchan" going on and had a very healthy dose of fun banter with staff.Joke bans flew around like no one's business and laughs were had loudly and often.
>had a very healthy dose of fun banter with staff.Joke bans flew around like no one's business and laughs were had loudly and often.
definitely not on /v/, mark's sense of humor was comparable to one of a redditor and I never saw any interactions with the vols.
this is true
>mark's sense of humor was comparable to one of a redditor and I never saw any interactions with the vols
I remember he tried to play SS13 once on the 8ch server, got put into a gas chamber, and then accused SS13 of being a goon holdout. He actually even got his posts deleted in the SS13 thread by a vol for shitposting too hard while anonymous.
>dozens of pics of himself
>taken by himself

>doxes himself with full name and address
>spent all the pity money jim gave him on bing bing and virtual subscriptions
>managed to throw it all away accomplishing nothing but scattering all the anons and gaining even more infamy

>Joke bans flew around like no one's business and laughs were had loudly and often.
I'm pretty sure that was during the firetires times.
>The problem is the GG name alienates a lot of people.
You just listed the main reason why the name always stays and will continue staying. In the early days it would gatekeep crossposting cuckchanners and otherassortment of asshurt niggers. It's a perpetual useful litmus test
I'm glad he pulled the trigger on 8kunt, though.
You still ate his cum for 5 years, fag
I'm thinking that a lot of jap ip's are still around like SMT,FE,Final Fantasy,Dragon Quest etc,but i can't think of many ip's in the west that are like that.
I don't think we've been on the same 8/v/, anon. I never really hated Mark, but his insistance on trying to become a Moot-lite was pretty annoying. He banned people for "console war bullshit", aka shitting on Nintendo, and sometimes he just banned you for no fucking reason at all. That's not friendly banter, that's a shitty moderator. Also why the fuck is having " joke bans" a good thing? Getting banned for joking around and the reason being "it's just bater lol" is gay and not good. The only time I can think of where "friendly banter" from Mark was actually funny was the time pic related happened, and maybe the THQ AMA. Zchan has more of a friendly banter feel to it, to be honest.
And Zchan, although still related and influenced heavily by 8/v/, has evolved a bit in terms of board culture I think., but that's mainly because of the moderation and small userbase.haven't had any problems with z/v/'s moderation, and this, combined with the small userbase makes this place feel different.
So where were you those five years?
I heard an explanation given for the Summer Effect was that anyone worth a shit would post less on imageboards and actually go out during that time leaving more of the shitpost addicted users to stay behind, thus becoming more noticeable.
The "Mark is a Nintendo shill" thing I remember being exaggerated after he kept banning soyjaks and shat on Nintendo himself for things like the Labo, with everyone joling about that. Joke bans only last a few minutes tops-someone got banned for posting an unspoiled handholding pic (because of the handholding=degenerate sick filth meme) and gave one out to Hotwheels way back when for technically breaking a rule with the cripple being aware of it in jest.
His j00t like traits however, are a cause for concern. A need for attention that has been the calling card for name and tripfags might very well be his downfall.
>His j00t like traits however, are a cause for concern.
>are a cause of concern
There's no Mark in sight here yet, I don't see anything to be concerned about.
Of course this place isn't clean but at least we can still fucking tell who is who unlike ni/gg/ers when that color autist appeared or when they were like "stop moving we only need THIS jewishly owned /v/!!!!! Even though you can just fucking use both but I guess sucking marks dick always have to be the case for them. Off tangent but my main gripe on ni/gg/ers is that they always been used as a fall back for shit stirrers and that issue with the color change joke showed.
This place isn't the same as 8/v/ unless you're talking about pre 18' since all I remember is the last two years of 8shit being absolute garbage.
The problem is, "a lot more" is stuff that's hard to create and it also takes time for it to consolidate, a lot of people nowadays don't have the patience for it and try to take shortcuts.
While the GG name keeps away a lot of anons who wouldn't improve the quality of the board in the slightest, the GG thread also attracts a slightly different breed of low quality posters.
NEWS FLASH EVERYONE
Pastanigger is not a nigger but a tranny therefore he shall be named Pastatranny now, this is all according to trusted sources.

Feminine penis>Circumcised penis
GGfags just convince themselves that anyone who questions their circlejerk must be a cuckchanner. or some other brand of interloper.
No, some of us just find your gay little clubhouse to be incredibly gay.
Where is that even from?
It keeps away a lot of anons who would add to the board and as you said it attracts drama queens and trannies because the "movement" is long dead.
the Icup thread in cafe, I just screencaped it for laughs it's just another D&C shill niggers.
I don't think banning GG discussion would be a good idea at all (that's how the whole shitstorm started), the problem is how their thread is barely GG related for the most part: though that's a more general /v/ problem, their thread is especially bad at it and prone to descend into /pol/ autism.
If GG was banned, the whole board would be kinda worthless. Might as well use cuckchan then.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with /v/ being the way it is. That's what it's been like for a while and on 8chan. It must be possible to have that without having to deal with Mark.
>I only come here for the transexual tea party
And this is why people don't want to be associated with people like you. The most famous GG member on 8ch was a pedophile. There's a reason we want to distance ourselves from you.
If the entire value of the board resided in the GG thread, the board should not (and likely would not) exist.
Thankfully, that's not the case: as you can see there's plenty of vidya discussion here that's not GG related.
>Might as well use cuckchan then.
That would mean acquiescing to worse jannies and admins, google captchas, VPN and TOR bans, range bans to milk money via 4chan pass, no audio on video files, ads and trackers everywhere...
Seriously, if your standards were simply "Can I discuss GG?" you'd be on Reddit as they still haven't banned or even quarantined KIA (that should make you wonder how effective that place is, tho).
>If the entire value of the board resided in the GG thread, the board should not (and likely would not) exist.
I'm not saying that.
>That would mean acquiescing to worse jannies and admins, google captchas, VPN and TOR bans, range bans to milk money via 4chan pass, no audio on video files, ads and trackers everywhere...
Summarized as loss of user freedom. Not being able to have GG discussion would also be a loss of user freedom. It's essentially the same thing.
How about we take on the most dangerous enemy we have instead,the /animu/gger?
What the fuck...
/v/ and /animu/ have turned him into a vegetable. Well done!
That was back when Julay was being demolished by Tengu.
The cuckamie menace is real, look at this hollow shell of a man now.
>Summarized as loss of user freedom. Not being able to have GG discussion would also be a loss of user freedom. It's essentially the same thing.
Lolbertarian frameworks aren't useful: not being able to spam like in >>14792 is also a loss of user freedom but it's a welcome one, not being able to create origami threads on /v/ is another welcome restriction of user freedom, and so on.
And again, I'm not against GG discussion, I'm against the current state of the GG thread: there's another anon who seems to be against GG discussion as a whole, you might have confused us.
>While the GG name keeps away a lot of anons who wouldn't improve the quality of the board in the slightest, the GG thread also attracts a slightly different breed of low quality posters.
Don't disagree at all. Just that for a long time the name was useful to keep out a certain assortment of shitposters from 8ch, and it worked for years.
You misunderstood my post completely. Not everyone who dislikes the general is some cuckchanner/interloper, that is not what I'm trying to say, but in the days of 8ch many crossposters wouldn't assimilate because of presence of GG. This is still a useful thing to keep in mind.
>there's another anon who seems to be against GG discussion as a whole, you might have confused us.
True. I guess over the years I have come to view the /gg/-thread as the equivalent to the /cafe/-thread on smug.
>I guess over the years I have come to view the /gg/-thread as the equivalent to the /cafe/-thread on smug.
I'm sorry sir, but you have cancer.
I believe a 24/7 meta is preferable so anons can complain when they are encountering issues although i can understand why others might disagree.
I'm fine with GG threads personally because i use them as the go to place for vidya industry news, i just wish cakelovers would keep their shitposting about it contained there, that is all.
I do not need to be reminded that it's all gone to shit in every thread.
If they can't do that mark is waiting for them with open arms in a site that says has nothing to do with 8chan but is named 8chan, where there are some 5 or 6 GG threads up at any one time, furry derailing is a ok, where there are no gamenights, no fullderp threads ,no share thread, template threads are fine and reddit is welcomed.
I just want anons to get along and fun to be had among all.
I'm just a filthy tor poster though what do i know.
Also i just want to thank tengu for burning down julay with no survivors, I found /cow/ to be off putting but had no idea what went on behind the scenes and thought they kept their degeneracy contained to their board.
It is late and i just want the good times to return, i'm going to go play some Gothic now, goodnight metanons.
>no share thread
There's one up that's small but present. Found out about an H-Game site going down from there.
>template threads are fine and reddit is allowed
Where on 8moe exactly? They were always shat on before and after the 8kun exodus.
you don't belong here, get out
Questioning exaggerated claims about fedchan isn't necessarily defending it. As cancerous as it is it's best not to make it out to be worse than reality. Though I don't know about template threads, the fact that Acidkike shilled on reddit is indisputable.
>thinking people should belong to one site or another depending purely on the opinions they hold
Itt's funny to see far the tumblr cancer managed to spread.
You are right, there is a share thread, i missed it feel free to bully.
At the time of me writing this there is also only
4 GG threads.
12 threads there easily fall under the the GG banner in my opinion, for reference the threads are:
>Evo is Dead because Wiz is a pedophile
>Assassin's Creed Valhalla Gameplay leak
>NEXT GEN GAMES TO BE SOLD FOR 70 DOLLARYDOOS AT LAUNCH
>Cyberpunk 2077 delayed mainly to cater to Gaming Journalists.
>Fuck you Activision
>EA Announce Positive Play Charter, Have Removed Over 3,500 “Player-Generated Assets” in Past Weeks
>Chris Avellone facing allegations
>Ex-Sony Boss Says AAA Game Development is 'Unsustainable'
>Did anything ever come of the Elder Scrolls VI announcement?
>Sega/Atlus made a survey
>Microsoft is shutting down Mixer
>AT&T selling WB Games for 4 billion
You could include a few more if you really want aswell.
You can call me out on exaggerating on template threads i guess since i was just going off 1 specific thread that isn't there anymore which was just a steam summer sale thread with anon posting pic of what he got while asking others the same.
I posted a few good natured shitposts because
While suggesting OP to at the very least tell anons why he got them, and which ones you shouldn't get even if they are on sale and why.
I got called a retard for it by anon on a Patagonian Ice Skating Forum so i got very buttblasted by it as you can clearly see.
Frogposting, #basedtrump tier comments, e-celeb shit and KiA are also in GG either being ignored or silently approved.
GG threads have it's place but what goes on over there is why a lot would just rather not have them at all, hard to disagree.
Honestly it seems like the GG thread is used for its PPH, it wouldn't be out of place in /b/ in my opinion.
Also, why fedchan?i thought 8kun was fedchan because well it was.I can't keep up with all the denominations.
I reiterate that i just want all /v/irgins to get along, D&C is bad for everyone.
Can you link me to those 12 threads, I don't exactly see them. Am I blind or are you browsing a different catalog?
>Assassin's Creed Valhalla Gameplay leak

all these sound like general gaming news, what does any of it have to do with gamergate?
GG is the liberal media's megaphone on image boards. They think they're anti-whatever news is coming out but they constantly promote it. They lay claim to all and any news and say it's under their wheelhouse when it never is.
Mods, yesterday we had either a complete retard or a troll. The heather poster who went on weird waifu rants and wouldn't stop avatarfagging. Kept IP hopping as they posted and was obviously out of place in several threads. Good job shutting it down quickly. I suspect it will continue but good job mods. Shutting it down quickly before it becomes a Dolphin situations a good idea.
They are in the same order as i listed them here >>16009
>all these sound like general gaming news, what does any of it have to do with gamergate?
Because that's the main appeal of GG threads these days? At least that's why i go to them,you remove that and all you have is a /b/ thread on /v/.
There's also the Senran Digger thread which i guess you can consider the only true GG related thread unless you don't consider Censorship digging thread to be GG.
>linking posts via url
Boy, i'm in for a bullying ain't I?
I'll just leave and comeback after everyone's forgotten with a different ID and act like it never happened.
this is why ni/gg/eras are the worst, kick them out.
Oh nevermind those are from markchan. Feel free to bully me.
I hope none of you fags post there
what else can you do? archive? lol
With your standards for what belongs in a /GG/ thread, there wouldn't be much discussion left for the rest of /v/.
You know, the "browsing a different catalog" was a half.joke, I didn't expect you to be this lost.
>Anon politely points out my mistake
>turns out i was right all along
Oh i know
HA HA GET FUCKED FAGGOT
Games themselves not the political bullshit surrounding them?
>Games themselves not the political bullshit surrounding them?
Your standards for "easily falls under the GG banner" include some things that don't seem inherently political or out of place when discussing vidya:
>discussion of not yet released games
>game-related services being shut down
>discussion of game prices and their trends
>some game company survey
It's obvious from his post that he considers GG to be it's own community outside of where it's hosted. Instead of adding to the board they're on they use the board as if it was a discord server. It's segregating topics which would be popular on the board and making them only in a general very few people use.
It's a shame to see anons segregated because of autistic differences.
Did you make thumbnails smaller?
>no vidya origami
Yeah you're right.
I've never used Discord so i don't know how shit works over there and that was not what i meant even if it comes across as such, my bad anons.
Wait, i'm confused now.You mean they, the GG crew, use it as a Discord right?Not they, those who oppose GG threads more or less, correct?
If yes, then yeah you're right, they seem to do their own thing for the most part. Still like i said i never used Discord so i don't know how it works for the most part.
I'm just going to fucking leave meta discussion to those with actual reading comprehension.
I just want vidya news to not be the only thing on the board. Along with not acting retarded about it.
I wish anons would just get along as we clearly seem to share interest in the same thing, videogames.
Also i don't see why fags seem to be unwilling to leave Mark's chocolate encrusted grasp while they can. Why stay? Back in 8chan you could use the argument that it was either stick with him, go back, or go to dead websites. Apart from him not being as bad as other BO's who we all heard horror story's about, what's keeping them there? Apart from Nordic AMA when was the last time he did something genuinely good for anons?
Is it a "Better the Devil you know than the Devil you don't" kind of deal?
I just don't get it.
tl;dr MUH PPH
Whilst I'm no fan of either the state of the GG threads or pointless drama threads most of those are topics that easily deserve their own thread. The Chris Avellone thing, for example, was worth a mention since anons tend to rate his work pretty highly arguably overrate it a bit though it probably should have been bumplocked after a reasonable time. On the other hand a constant drip-feed of free marketing for shit like Cyberpunk 2077 every time something silly happens is counter productive and mostly just an excuse for everyone to come virtue signal about how bad it's going to be/how they hate trannies again for the 50th time. It's different if it's the first time a game/developer has done something retarded and anons need to know about it or if it's major news but that's basically just reposting a press release for a game everyone already knew was fucked. It's not even a game anyone cares about the release date of.
What's really important is not so much demanding all news be stuck into one thread as maintaining a balance between news, discussion of recent vidya and discussion of older vidya/other vidya topics that don't line up with one specific game so the board doesn't just become a churn of current events, new releases + a few generals that live in their own bubble. 8/v/ at its worst had entire weeks where if you didn't want to discuss twitter drama, meta drama involving mark or the latest FotM game there was nothing.
What to avoid is what happened to 4/v/ before the exodus where splitting off /vg/ and /vr/ had left it as a wasteland of current events only with /vg/ having the opposite problem of just being generals and /vr/ being basically a dead board. A mix is what's needed.
Also the spoiler markup is still gay.
Regarding the steam sale thread, if I wanted to have discussion about a topic such as >>16285, should I make a new thread with clearly defined disclaimers about buying games, or should I just hope for someone to reply in the current thread?
I think a communal dumpster dive would be potentially really fun, and we may even find some good games in it. I'm the only one who would be spending any money, too, so it's not as though I'd be encouraging anons to dump money into the Steam economy.
Talking about steam and buyfagging isn't disallowed. But low effort threads are.
If you were to make a "I have $30, tell me what to buy" OP, it would get deleted. If you're looking for something as shallow as buyfag recommendations then use the QTDDTOT, that's the reason it exists, for questions that would bloat the catalog.
That thread is exactly about dumpster diving, I don't see the need for another one. I could unlock it I guess.
I was planning to play and discuss the games in the thread (maybe not all at once, but at a reasonable pace). It wouldn't just be me asking for recommendations.
I think a bump unlock would be the best idea, since the derail/sperging about >buying games has died down.
Not like this.
They use the board to host their chatroom rather than joining the board. It's like a discord server where you use the platform for drama and gossip.
There is a balance which is why I think it needs to be split from GG and their circle jerk. There's news anons are going to want to hear without digging through all their posts. I don't know of even 1 good website for vidya news any more.
We have a bunch of spergs who are going to act retarded and try to turn it into a dumpster fire. You would be better off making it something like "Vidya dumpster diving" instead of a steam sale directly. Or call it "Free games and sales" which maybe more useful long term.
>You would be better off making it something like "Vidya dumpster diving" instead of a steam sale directly. Or call it "Free games and sales" which maybe more useful long term.
That is a better idea for the next thread, but I think the current one is usable enough.
You, along with other anons who pointed it out are correct. These are not GG topics. My mistake.
>They use the board to host their chatroom rather than joining the board. It's like a discord server where you use the platform for drama and gossip.
Yeah this is a fair description of what i find in GG threads.
I just want them to assimilate, if they can't well, Cakechan is 2 blocks down.
Eh, those for me are targets because shitposting about steam and buying games is easy game.
That's not to mean they don't have their place, personally i just want them to have a little effort put into them rather than "Look what i got, what about you?"
I don't expect to find the next Gothic over there but that's not to say one cannot find decent games this way and in my opinion there's no such thing as a backlog with too many good games in it.
>so it's not as though I'd be encouraging anons to dump money into the Steam economy.
Yeah don't do that anon.
None of the threads posted are showing off what was bought. It was about discovering new games at low prices or discussing news. This ultimately comes down to how the moderation team wants the board to look. Either they can have shit posters drive everyone else off or they can drive off the shit posters. Why would any one effort post on a board full of chimps shitting up every thread they touch? Why not go to another image board like wizchan where you can discuss these topics and the moderation is in line with protecting the board's focus?
If it's about finding good games at low prices and discussing them and news around them, i see nothing wrong with this, and derailing shitposters should be ignored or if it gets really bad, moped up by whatever janny is on duty.
you still shouldn't buy games though on steam of all places :^)
They use VPNs to hop around and reply to themselves. It's not as easy as ignoring it.
I'm now wondering how viable it would be for the board software to automatically tag posts made through VPNs. Would you just need a list of IP addresses to compare against?
VPNs are needed to keep anons secure. Them being abused isn't a problem if moderation doesn't tolerate shit posting.
I didn't mean for it to be used for bans or anything. Just add a tag to the post saying it was made through a VPN so other anons know.
Alright i went and took a look at the thread in question and yeah it went to shit pretty fast, you can thank GG for that.
I feel bad for OP, jannie intervention is required i think although i don't know how much can be salvaged.
Mods clean the board up or shut it down already. It's obvious to any one with experience what is happening and it's hitting critical mass. If you don't start solving the derailment you're going to bleed users.
>two (1) and dones in a row
<I WARNED YOU
>shut it down
Okay someone be straight with me. Why does Julay want to kill this website?
It's not ran by irc trannies. Pic related, it's what caused the implosion.
Julay is run by the /cow/kiwifarms niggers which are pretty much goons, and we all know how much goons hate fun.
They're not goons, they're hotwheel's friends. Different type of asshole.
I use Tor faggot if you payed attention i've been participating for a while.
GG fags need to keep their shit contained in their own thread.
Despite what some of you may think it's not the /cow/ Jewlay trannys that are being vocal in their dislike for goobergoobles, GG is more alike them than they'd like to admit.
But keep dismissing valid concerns from anon's that just want board quality to improve.
/geimu/ is right around the corner if shit keeps up over here.
>I'm now wondering how viable it would be for the board software to automatically tag posts made through VPNs. Would you just need a list of IP addresses to compare against?
You could maybe do it but you'd hurt a lot of users who use them for privacy or because their government is crazy. Also you'd have to keep the list up to date and while htere are plenty of online sources for that you'll never get every VPN.
Julay itself was run by a typical IRC circlejerk with all the drama and identityfagging you'd expect from that. However julay had a pretty decent /v/ board not because robi and his faggots had done anything but because they'd basically ignored it and it had been colonised by lost anons looking for a drama (and mark) free board somewhere between rulecuckery and /b/-but-with-vidya. The userbase was what made it despite a procession of incompetent BOs being hired literally because they showed up in robi's IRC then quitting after fucking up and being bullied for their mistakes. Meanwhile most of the rest of julay other than /k/ (/k/ did have a good BO who wasn't the fucking greek or ausfag) was a shithole full of /cow/faggots and attentionwhores.
Eventually this policy of 'lol just hire anyone who asks' for /v/ backfired and resulted in tengu being stuck in charge, who basically didn't understand/care for the existing /v/ style of doing things and decided to go maximum funposting pissing off the bulk of the existing userbase. This was followed up by some additional pointless drama between the new BO and some global mod(s) because both were namefagging attentionwhores, assorted other drama and /k/ leaving for anon.cafe and /v/'s userbase leaving for about 4 other places including a fair few who ended up here.
After this all died down julay was left with a dead /v/ (and dead /k/) and a bunch of vendettas against all the alternatives even though it was their own fucking fault in the first place. In both cases /v/ and /k/ had only been good despite the way julay was run not because of it, /v/ sort of functioned where 3/4 of the catalog was decent and 1/4 of it was /cow/shit but that's a better ratio than most boards have had since maybe late 2015.
>However julay had a pretty decent /v/ board not because robi and his faggots had done anything but because they'd basically ignored it and it had been colonised by lost anons looking for a drama (and mark) free board somewhere between rulecuckery and /b/-but-with-vidya.
Can confirm, rts thread will never be the same after that birdslut antic and rabbi complete incompetence, at least that bring back the nigerianpasta and fatchan successor for the most part.
>/v/'s userbase leaving for about 4 other places including a fair few who ended up here
So /geimu/, zchan/v/, antares and what? smug/vg/?
>/k/ did have a good BO who wasn't the fucking greek or ausfag
Gyrovol literally saved 8ch/k/ from the muttspammers and the krautnigger, retard. The problem was that he went a bit too extreme and deleted a bunch of legit posts too which caused some uproar. But despite that, he made /k/ actually usable again. You could finally post without some retard 10 minutes later showing up and spamming NIGGERNIGGERNIGGER or MUTTMUTTMUTT in the thread.
Aus BO was also good because he didn't enforce any retarded rules. His only problem was that his laziness was what led to /k/ being infested with spam in the first place, but that's better than Mark. Meanwhile it took the Julay/k/ BO fucking ages to start dealing with the spammers and the krautnigger.
>So /geimu/, zchan/v/, antares and what? smug/vg/?
Yes. I assume a few ended up on mark/v/ as well.
The greek was everything wrong with 8/k/ turning into /int/ & /pol/-lite resulting in his banning shit arbitrarily based on what he didn't like. Removing spam is literally the basic qualification for being a janny so he doesn't get any special praise for that since pretty much anyone who wasn't outright malicious or incompetent would have done that in his position. Might as well have put spergook in charge since that would at least have been funny.
>Meanwhile it took the Julay/k/ BO fucking ages to start dealing with the spammers and the krautnigger.
Given that it was basically just him it's not surprising, and I'll take a bit of spam here and there over shitty overmoderation that destroys actual discussion.
Spam is not a problem the webring has. Shit posters who aren't interested in making quality posts are. 8ch suffered from this problem and many anons went to other imageboards to get away from "every board is natsoc /v/" style of posters. When 8ch died the people who ruined 8ch got released into the larger pool on the webring, which sent the people using alt chans deeper underground to avoid them again. The good /pol/ posters I know of are 4 steps removed from 8ch and 3 from the webring. Anons who were interested in quality ON TOPIC content found cuckchan was better than anything on the webring. It has shitty but experienced moderation so if you ask about a steam sale you can expect people to discuss the steam sale and not derail the thread. People who aren't looking for a way to waste time and a fake family to fill a void in them are going to value quality content over whatever the hell this place has turned into.
And that's without touching on the intentional trolls who see new boards as easy targets to shit up.
>Just add a tag to the post saying it was made through a VPN so other anons know.
How do you want to get that information in the first place? I mean you can do it for TOR nodes, but for VPNs? Those are just normal IPs, not something accessing a hidden service. You'd have to buy a month at every VPN provider, connect to every server and record the IPs. Hiroshima and Strawpoll might have the money/manpower to do it, I doubt zchan admin does though.
Getting the information is potentially difficult/expensive, sure. I just threw the idea out there on a whim.
There are plenty of free lists around though how complete or not they are is up for debate. It would anyway be impossible to ever get 100% coverage since any autist can set up a private VPN quite easily unless you also applied to to known datacentre IPs/any non-home IP and then you accidentally tag anons posting from work.
It's also completely pointless. Knowing someone is using a VPN is useless information. If you legitimately think schizophrenic retards conversing with themselves is actually a massive issue you're so new it hurts. The constant ID changes you see are from tor posters, tor ID's change constantly from post to post and usually don't last for more than a minute. Your retarded idea only serves to enable boogieman bullshit accusations. This kind of thinking ruined other boards as people just started claiming anyone they couldn't effectively argue against was IP hopping or a dirty torpedo.
Attack people on their ideas. It shouldn't make an ounce of difference if someone is changing their IP to form a consensus, not that I think this actually happens to any degree where it needs to be addressed or dealt with. A thousand people could tell me I'm wrong and it still wouldn't be an argument.
I agree. It's wise to use a VPN after all, everyone should to protect himself. So ideally, every post would be either TOR or a VPN.
Anonymous boards with IDs create this uncanny valley as it gives you clues who someone might be, but in the most technical and unreliable manner possible. Most people probably change their VPN node every few hours or at least once a day because they vary in speed. It might be as fast as your normal internet connection in the morning but slow and unstable in the evening. Nobody will put up with a bad internet connection just to keep imageboard IDs consistent. Now differentiating that from malicious actors based solely on that is almost voodoo. It might always be a strawman argument too, consciously or unconsciously. This is why
>Attack people on their ideas.
I got that at random a while back on a whim because it was cute and quite enjoyed it, I'm happy /v/ approves of it too.
I have seen an uptick in shitposting, whats changed?
Unless there has been an immense change in that website's administration such as Robi being replaced, it doesn't. Where did you get that idea?
This is a mostly accurate summary of julay/v/, but I disagree with julay having vendettas as a whole - maybe /cow/ does and that bleeds onto other boards due to the cross-pollination. I never much poked my head outside of julay/v/ when I used the site, however, so it is possible I missed something.
I've noticed that too: the Wholesame Games thread, Spiders thread, and PS5 30FPS thread have all degenerated into political garbage. While 30FPS thread may have been doomed from the start due to the garbage, low-effort OP, the others have had a lot more shitposting than I feel is normal.
This is your friendly local reporting tengu back with another scoop of bird shit flying at your windshield faster than the speed of sound. King Slaphead Gahoole II of tvch fame has renewed support on his board following his decision to physically remove Eden (The /geimu/ board owner.) from /dup/ by force. This psychotic change of heart comes as little surprise to his inner court of elector counts and jesters, who have long known him to be an absolutely insane ogre. To him, if you ain't family, you could easily join his long shitlist of individuals who don't suffer from male pattern baldness. When I entered his swamp for a comment, I could only hear him grunting
It's possible that's the sound ogres make when they take a fat shit but who could say for sure as he was waist deep in his own filth already. In any case, this reporting agency is always glad to see another rulecuck get blown the fuck out, regardless of the context. It is worth noting however, that the weeb janny has apparently accounted for this, and claims to be preparing for his next move. Whether or not he is just blowing smoke remains to be seen.
It turns out that the reason why zeech feels so similar to Dicsord is that the admin is or was allegedly a freelance bot engineer. That is the sole reason why it has special snowflake formatting compared to the rest of the webring, to more closely match that infamous Chinese backed software. What you're left with is that the two most popular /v/ owners both work for rival government agencies. Well that explains why they hate eachother! Naturally, neither of them were not available for comment. (Their superiors at the FBI and Tencent respectively likely ordered them not to to talk to the press.)
You remember playing Cave's last great shmup, DoDonPachi SaiDaiOuJou? Neither do I! That's because PCBs for the currently impossible to emulate game run anywhere from 8k to 10k+ in your human "Dollars". An inferior Xbox 360 copy will cost you around 300. A possible PC port has been seemingly shelved following a partnership with exA-Arcadia, meaning that the hard to obtain game will remain so for the forseeable future. Apparently they plan to re-release the game with some new features exclusively in the arcades. Undoubtedly a poor business decision, considering the popularity of their previous ports to PC. This reporting agency firmly stands by the stance that danmaku should be free to all, so if you'd like a golden lead shower hit me up.

Tom is very based for a (((discord))) nigger. If Tom says tranny spoilers are based then I believe him.
Tengu you need to dig some dirt on the (((BO))) of this board. So far we've seen dozens of unsourced claims of all sorts of shit but nothing backed by solid proof, you're the man for the job.

>I've noticed that too: the Wholesame Games thread, Spiders thread, and PS5 30FPS thread have all degenerated into political garbage
So is there going to be any statement on the mods/BO regarding this? I've noticed a few posts were deleted, which I appreciate, but the threads are unusable for their intended purpose, especially the Wholesome Games thread. It's literally just nu/pol/ in there.
I know that this board has a laissez-faire attitude towards moderation, and that generally works with our posters, but the influx of total trash in the last few days has been very noticeable. I believe some action should be taken to undo the damage and make it clear that kind of shitposting isn't welcome here.
>why do you keep asking the mods to ban things you don't like???
>So is there going to be any statement on the mods/BO regarding this?
What do you want me to say? Stop replying to bait and derailment or you're a part of the problem. You can't expect us or anyone to hunt every single not on topic post as soon as it's made.
>the threads are unusable for their intended purpose, especially the Wholesome Games thread. It's literally just nu/pol/ in there.
I see plenty of on topic posts and discussion, stipulation b is a thing, I'd say it's far from unusable.
>I believe some action should be taken to undo the damage and make it clear that kind of shitposting isn't welcome here.
You believe what you want but there's no super special awesome "official" action to be taken. The rules are already there.
Works on my machine, try reloading.
I've seen a big uptick in board white knights. The kind of fags that barge into a thread, accuse everyone of being cuckchan and reddit and just shit up the place. They always do it in the most pissy of ways too. I could point a few out if you like.
please BO don't fucking leave because of this
We're all fine, but it's probably for the best if the admin announces these things in the future
Z is an idea
No, it's a gas station.
Do they sell liquor at gas stations in NZ?
