I'd her horns, VIRAL MARKETING, and Shana being hot who was my first waifu and I'm now 8 years older than her. 2006-2007 were best years. Never watched Code Geass but whatever year that was, the threads seemed fun with the one I remember being someone recognizing shopped dick from another picture.

The person that made this image seems really upset.

Also possibly didn't understand the fundamental aspect of the phenomenon we call "aging" through which our perceptions and opinions are changed.

Maybe he shouldn't post here before he was 18.

Parker Thomas
Parker Thomas

I'm turning 26 in three months, and I've learned that people's opinions change over time throughout my years. How old you are is irrelevant, people change in ways you'll never expect them to.

All that image says to me is is that Komeiji is a human being, which is a rather silly point to attempt to convey. Might as well try to assert that water is wet and fire is hot.

Elijah Barnes

I wonder what Komeiji ever said to made Cred Forums hate him so much.

There was a Panty&Stocking clubbing event with DJs (e.g. the people who mixed the PSG ost) and performances and cosplayers dancing on stripper poles. It was live streamed and it was basically a night of Cred Forums clubbing out (at their computers) and having fun

gaiafags
havent heard that term in a long time.
Yeah the threads could have been a lot better without it but it was fun in its own way.
the YuYu threads today are very chill though and I hang around there whenever I get the chance.

A lot more OC was made.
Cred Forums had more of an elitist culture, self moderation that is much stronger than today. It was pretty high up there with /jp/ if that helps.
There was also this feeling that I cant described that I felt whenever I lurked back then that was genuinely different and unique.
I believe its the way how anons were back then.
The newfriends actually lurked a lot before posting but I think thats a generalization, some still do I bet.

I do miss the good old days, Cred Forums has changed a lot since then.

Hudson Morales

YuYu threads were always chill, I'm glad to hear it hasn't changed much. It was always a very specific niche for people that didn't mind discussing the show for the 100th time.

The entire second half of what you wrote is more or less what I wrote in 2015 in an earlier post of mine.

Really makes you do the thinking emoji.

The only mod that actually liked Cred Forums enough to come here often was modcat, and we all know what happened to him.

Seriously, Cred Forums really need Mods & Janny from both west & east hemisphere.
Because when Mods & Janny from (maybe) Ameri-chan & Yurop asleep, Asian & Aussie shitposters are wake up.

Justin Nguyen
Justin Nguyen

That's unfortunate.

It's just a sinking ship at this point, user. Just enjoy the disaster because you can't fight the waters... the waters be too strong and our resolve too ineffective. ;_;

It was a pretty big incident.

He did his thing where he used the warning system to send a personal message to certain posters for fun, but when he did it on /adv/, some batshit insane femanon started crying about power abuse despite it just being a harmless warning with a private message included in it. He felt bad about it enough to resign. I specifically talked to him 1 on 1 to not resign over some stupid bitch throwing a hissy fit, but he felt that he would get his power taken away from him regardless (which I don't think would've happened at all).

Whoever that retarded femanon is, she's pretty much responsible for taking away the only active mod on Cred Forums. Most of us tripfags that received messages from him in this manner never found it to be offensive in any way, but I guess that's just what happens when we welcome normalfags in and they just refuse to lurk before posting to assimilate.

Grayson Baker
Grayson Baker

since then

Lucas Ross

Do mods still ban spoonfeeding?

I have no problem with spoonfeeding as long as the source is not popular or barely mentioned on Cred Forums but fuck. I've seen threads where the title was put on the subject or filename and newfags/crossboarders still can't figure it out and still get spoonfed.

That's like asking sauce for Kuroinu on /h/.

Spoonfeeders are a bigger problem than saucefags.

Parker Evans

Nah he was murdered and the kids he was "playing with" just thought a stupid excuse and got away with it

Nolan Garcia

It was pretty high up there with /jp/ if that helps
/jp/ only splitted in 2008 though. The endless summer only started in 2009 so that ``up there'' period wasn't that long.
Even /jp/ lost their autism now, seriously what's with all those idolfaggotry and jav generals?

Charles Adams

We both know that's just wishful thinking at best, no matter how true we'd like that to be.

Blake Lopez
Blake Lopez

personally i think /b/ deserves probably most of the blame.
They overused lurk more to the point that it's meaning shifted to simply memorizing any semi relevant past event.
then all you had to do was avoid conversations requiring any such knowledge and that spread to all boards thanks to /b/ bringing in more and more people

I don't believe they went to infinity or mchan, though. Since Cred Forums in those sites are pretty much ded.

Ryder Bailey
Ryder Bailey

I'm in contact with a lot of the people that used to be here, and it's really just the combination of reddit/gaia/normalfags taking over this board making it go dowin the toilet, and just us moving on with our lives.

We lurk every now and then but... we don't really post. Anime is still a hobby for the lot of us, of course.

At least, that's what I can tell from a sample size of around 200 people.

I can't remember if I was here for that one, I only started posting on Cred Forums during the lanced jack and taiga fiasco.

Hudson Hill
Hudson Hill

This.
Cred Forums used to self moderate, but a few whiners wanted more mod policing; and now they hand bans to any oldfags who still try and stifle newfaggotry, because it's "trolling", "off-topic" or "not a quality post".
It's also stifled creativity and original content, leading to generals and shitposting.

So to combat the generals and shitposting the same dumbfucks who created this whole situation, are now crying for even more moderation to stop it. Which will kill this board for good.

Luis Rogers

To a degree, yes. Once r/a/dio stopped becoming a community thing and started becoming it's own secular group things went downhill.

Such a shame, r/a/dio used to be really fun.

Brody James

Don't be stupid, we self moderated by being a bunch of elitist pricks. Visible sage did nothing but serve as a form of "downvoting" or "disliking" or whatever bullshit you kids like to do nowadays.

Liam Cruz
Liam Cruz

visible sage was a way of showing disapproval without being childish about it,
its not a coincidence that the cuck shit really took off once sage was removed.

Wyatt Green

I never thought seeing smochi post would give me a tinge of nostalgia. I still hate you.

Nolan Cooper

modcat warned me that as long as I posted naughtys under a spoiler and announced it he wouldn't ban me

Thomas Gomez
Thomas Gomez

cuckposting didn't start until well after sage was dead. If anything the new way of downboating is (You) posting.

Joshua Barnes
Joshua Barnes

Visible sage did abso-fucking-lutely nothing to discourage newfags or normalfags from posting whatever stupid shit they posted. More often than not, people used it in a childish way to basically "downvote" a thread for the sole purpose of conveying "wow stop talking about things I don't like."

The only "civil" way sage was actually used was when it was visible that the user didn't want his post to bump the thread because it wasn't on topic, and those were extremely rare to see.

You could perhaps argue that the old sage spam was an effective tool of moderation before moot added a post timer long before captchas were added, but thread spamming wasn't exclusively a sagebomb thing to begin with.

It's not healthy to harbor hatred like that, user!

I gave up on Cred Forums a couple years ago. We got spoiled by having mods that not only moderated but were also part of the community and participated. I don't even watch that much anymore. Part of the fun of watching was watching with Cred Forums. I'm glad though I randomly decided to lurk one day and found out about Takagi-san.

Time sure flies, doesn't it?

I could've sworn I was posting in a confession thread just a year ago, but it was actually six years ago.

Huh...

I've been having cravings to visit Cred Forums every time a new New Game episode came out, but I just... didn't. Not sure what actively stopped me, perhaps I'm just too sad over the newfags running rampage like they own the place.

Ugh, catalog is one of the things I contribute to the downfall of this site.

The quintessential Cred Forums experience was gauging the popular discussion by looking at the front page and jumping into the popular discussion. The whole concept of the "front page" was THE Cred Forums dynamics at work, but the introduction of the catalog completely killed that and basically turned this place into an anime forum #2521.

Discovered Cred Forums when I was 16 back in 06, but I preferred to lurk because... well, the whole elitism thing actually worked back then. It discouraged me from posting while being an underage "cancer."

It's never too late for anime, friend.

In order to truly enjoy the /v/ experience, I feel like you have to just acknowledge /v/ for what it is. It's just /b/ with video games.

The catalog isn't the problem, it's the "keep it to one thread" mentality that was imported from other boards and sites.

Jace Sullivan
Jace Sullivan

I just generate less OC than I used to and make smaller, less thoughtful posts.

I think it's largely because my tastes have changed. I used to jump on every big popular seasonal show and participate in the threads nonstop, but I rarely watch those shows or browse their threads anymore and stick almost exclusively to seasonal SoL shows or other minor things that tends to be less popular and barely get a thread going every week. Those threads tend to generate less OC and discussion by nature so I contribute less as well.

Also the effort involved in putting thought and substance into a post seems wasted nowadays when so goddamn many people posting here are obnoxious, arrogant ESL idiots with barely a basic grasp of the english language. The last time I did bother to make a decent post it got met with something to the effect of "You're bad and wrong because I don't understand what words mean" in various degrees of broken, grammatically horrid english.

I could go on a tirade about why ESL posters who try way too hard to pretend they're not ESL ruin threads but that's a topic for another meta thread.

If you were interested in a group chat that kind of started as an Cred Forums chat back in 2009 but I guess it grew into something more, but it still has a decent amount of people from Cred Forums in it like Taiga and some other anons.

The catalog enables that behavior, though. That mentality wouldn't exist if the catalog didn't exist.

Man, that was one hell of a night. I actually started tipping over when I tilted my head just a bit.

Memories, mang.

Holy moly /co/ was one of the strangest boards because they used "HNNGH" to allude to arousal rather than finding something adorable.

Apparently it got ruined by normalfags and rampant femanons.

While I'm mostly indifferent about r/a/dio, when r/a/dio threads were getting banned the people that actively participated in them started saying stuff like "*EVERYONE* LIKES R/A/DIO HOW DARE YOU BAN IT" and the lot of us that didn't really give a damn about r/a/dio didn't care for it. It kind of gave the whole "up their own ass" impression where they think they're speaking for everyone, almost as if they didn't understand what would happen if all of Cred Forums were to post in a single thread at once, and then used the sample size of any given r/a/dio thread and assume every single poster on Cred Forums is accounted for.

With that said, I'm sure it was just a vocal minority that said all the dumb stuff and most of you are probably alright.

O-Oh okay.

It's not as though every person that isn't a native englis-speaker is the anti-christ, but there's a specific kind of ESL poster -I'm sure you know what I'm talking about- who has an extremely tenuous grasp of the language and very limited vocabulary constituted mostly by memes imported from whatever native-language aggregator websites they browse, /int/ and twitter. They're perpetually angry and confrontational but don't know how to articulate themselves, and so just post aggressive, meme-laden nonsense in response to anything they don't like and assume everyone else either has as little of an understanding of english as they do (and thus that they can pretend they're an authority on it) or else try to pretend that they're actually much more fluent than they are, to the point where defensively shitpost anything which stresses their minimal understanding of the language or challenges their misuse or lack of comprehension of basic word-choice.

I frankly don't know where the hell they all came from or what makes them so goddamn bad at posting, but holy shit. Cred Forums's played host to ESL users for years that weren't actively detrimental to the quality of the board, but this new breed is something else entirely. My strong suspicion is that they're South-east asian and south-pacific islanders that rode in on /vg/ generals for big mobage franchises like Love Live and [email protected] and just stayed here, or perhaps that they're just /int/ crossposters that like to use everything outside of their home board's language-specific general as a toilet.

At first it was only bad in Light Novel adaptation threads, where poorly understood chinese spoilers were spammed and parroted ad nauseum by these people, trying desperately to be an authority on a story they hadn't actually read, just so they could talk down to people trying to actually enjoy the series. Lately they've spread damn near everywhere and it's a goddamn problem.

His post is fine. It's one of those images you used to see in Heroman threads and he didn't say anything particularly awful.

Maybe you should apply your own advice to your own self.

To be completely fair, the shows that elicite this kind of boardwide awareness rarely ever do deserve it.

Remember Aldnoah Zero? That show was hot trash and didn't even have any meme value but still took over the whole board every day it aired. Bursts of popularity like that are spontaneous and irrational, you just gotta ride the wave when they happen. If, like this season, it happens with a show that's well and truly bad, to the point of being difficult to sit through even with the Cred Forums threads contextualizing things and making them more entertaining, then it's just a pity. I personally just can't sit through RE Zero so I miss put on what fun and shitposting the threads must enjoy, but this isn't the first time this has happened, either.

Now I actually think Cred Forums's problem is, and just hear me out on this, not too many newfags, but too few. Or rather, we haven't been integrating enough newfags into the board culture to keep things dynamic. A lot of what makes this board entertaining is the youth atmosphere. The snappy comebacks, the witty banter, the sophmoric humor. But the oldfags are now into their 30s, 40s even. While some have left the board altogether, others who have stuck around have seen so much of every goddamned thing that they have no capacity for joy left. I mean what the hell is with all this "Kill yourself", "I've been trying to" crap? I don't recall this place being so dour five years ago.

What KLK did was bring an infusion of young blood into Cred Forums that restored some of the jovial atmosphere of years past. But once the show ended, all the old curmudgeons here did was chase them off. At this rate, in a few years this place will start sounding like a geriatric forum.

I disagree 120%. All the rampant shitposting as it stands is due to newfags. Those '20 - 40 something oldfags' you mentioned are definitely not the ones shitting up the front page with 'baby's first anime' Re Zero or making the "X is cute, CUTE!" threads or other garbage. The 'new blood' in anime fandom are obnoxious brats who cling fast to jojo memes and fall in love with phrases like 'kawaii in the steeets, senpai in the sheets'.

KLK and the audience it brought with it were (and still are) cancer. The self-loathing and borderline nihilism you mentioned has always been present on Cred Forums, ronery threads used to be a thing.

David Stewart

in order to answer this question I would have to write out a series of longform posts on some wordpress install somewhere documenting exactly why the show works so well in terms of storyboarding, editing, shot blocking, and all the cinematographic tools of art -- on an episode-by-episode, scene-by-scene basis -- and I haven't scraped the time together for that yet, because it is a massive undertaking and I have a day job

the new show is far less focused in its presentation and i stopped watching after episode 3 completely lacked any sort of dramatic weight; it felt condescending and what I've heard of the following episodes hasn't convinced me that Sakurai has as strong a central vision and autism level for fine details as Kyougoku, but i dont want to go that deep into it on here itt

That's true. Although it's not just because anime nowadays doesn't deliver, it's the mindset that has changed as well. Posters no longer know how to have fun and are too focused on following the trends, be it on things you should praise or hate on. Even trolling had some sort of finesse before and most would put visible effort into their posts, while short posts would be taken as such and not reflected upon. Nowadays everything is an empty echo of whatever epic insults or words of praise are common and if you happen to write a longer post, everyone will think it's copy pasta from somewhere else because you're not expected to think with your own head before typing, just like you're not expected to have taste of your own and like different things. As a result most of us who were used to a different environment will pick up shows and enter threads with a predisposed bitterness, which in turn will not contribute to what could be a comfy time watching whatever we're watching. Many of us who were here for Geass are still around and watching things but we feel like it's a waste of time to participate because most posters are in fact retarded. We're just making it harder on ourselves because there are still a few people worth replying to. There might be less entertaining shows these days but half of the fun of those shows in the past was the creative atmosphere of the threads.

tl;dr report shitposts and post as you would 5 years ago.

Slightly unrelated but can I just say that this 'ironic anime lover' stuff has become far too annoying already?

You know what I'm talking about. 14 - 16 year olds saying 'anime sucks' but obviously anime fans. Cropped doujin/hentai profile pictures, youtube parodies, overuse/misappropriation of terms like 'lewd', 'waifu' or 'weeaboo', tumblrposting and jojo posing, all this sort of garbage.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, filthy frank is essentially their role model.

Angel Hernandez
Angel Hernandez

Agreed, I can come off as a strong shit poster but the temperament of Cred Forums has just become vicious without any class.

Seasonal anime threads are fine, but what is grating me is that subject topic is the same damn thing, no one tries to create an interesting point of discussion to start things off, it requires extensive lurking of threads replaying the same turn of events.

Honestly I've found threads on /e/ more invigorating for discussion because people still have passion to follow up author's current releases, translated feedback, etc.

Can't remember the last time there was a backdrop focus on the location an anime was based off.

Ethan Moore

I'd rather have Hiroyuki than anybody else, honestly, because he understands the ethos of anonymous posting online while not trying to monetize or interfere with the natural flow of the boards.

Cred Forums in general and Cred Forums especially used to be so much more creative. People seemed to actually tried to post interesting content sometimes.
It used to be nighttime Cred Forums was distinctly different from daytime Cred Forums.
Much more personal posting from sad and alone f/a/gs.
I miss it.

Seasonal anime threads are fine
A lot of them just become generals very quickly (see new game, for example) and there's just nothing to discuss. We get threads 24/7, just "hey, let's talk about X" and then the same posts repeat themselves. A lot of the questions etc there are answered with "look it in the archives". It feels weird trying to actually start talking there. Like I'm interrupting some private convo.
I find it much easier to start convos over twitter or shit like discord honestly.

Another issue with Cred Forums is that there are no outlets for solidarity. Beyond generals, the board is a mess for consistent dialogues.

Blake Brooks

The problems of over-moderation by mods and dwindling self-moderation by the board, occurred later under Moot, and have continued under Hiroyuki.
I think the pressure Moot was under from Gawker and it's allies, to stop Gamergate shit on /v/, created many of the moderation problems today.

Only generals I could think of pre-2011 was... maybe Strike Witches? When did mods start banning generals, was it 2012? Because the banning of generals happened maybe a month after the general thread started appearing with the official "GENERAL" in their titles.

Anyways, the point is that the lack of solidarity that he's complaining about was what drove this place to begin with. That's why I felt like he never really belonged here.

Maybe you're misunderstanding. The solidarity BEFORE generals was things like projects Cred Forums worked on together, ronery threads and things like that.

The only solidarity NOWADAYS are the community people in generals make among themselves and insulate the threads from any outside influence. It's not enjoyable like this.

This is objectively wrong though.
/v/ went "blue /b/" in 09 and Cred Forums swung elitist in response.
I remember it well because I was primarily a /v/ poster.

Carter Perry
Carter Perry

Ah, yes. That would count too, I suppose.

The thing about Sora no Woto threads was that unlike most generals, it wasn't just stupid circlejerking nonstop. It was circlejerking about SPECULAH and charts, which is infinitely better than circlejerking about literally nothing because you've exhausted everything there is to talk about like other general threads.

Sora no Woto was a general done right, even if I didn't really care for most of the speculations because some people started really stretching to grasp at things. It felt like the threads existed out of the necessity for discussion, not for the necessity of "trying to keep the general alive at all cost."

Ah, I see. I thought you were advocating for more general threads.

I agree, it's basically a sinking ship. Just enjoy what you can while facing doomsday. ;_;

Oh yeah.

Oh god, the raildex generals...

Luis King

I remember it was because the faggots on /foolz/ or whatever the place was back then decided that they didn't like r/a/dio for some insane reason and bothered moot until he banned them without really even checking the situation himself.

I break it up much the same way.
Pre-2007 I remember for being a newfag and for being very much like /b/, especially with regards to popular series, and with pockets of /jp/ surrounding niche titles and things that were only tangentially related.
2007-2011 is the time I remember most vividly for all the memes and OC and explosions of popular series that went on, as well as all the shit that shook the whole board like the various major spammers, tripfags an the like.

Things really calmed down somewhere around 2010 and into 2011 and we had this long period of stagnation, both in terms of what was airing and in terms of what was going on here. Recently, like within the past year, that seems to be changing and things have livened back up both in regards to what's airing and how the board reacts to it. I'm rather hopeful that we're heading into better times.

It's more like
2006-09 - Old Cred Forums
Lots of OC, feels like a loosely held together forum, community organizes shit to do together constantly, distinct sense of board culture. Plenty of trolling and autists are muxed in, but it's all more light-hearted, fun, and generally chill than today.
2010-12 - Old Cred Forums dies
Cred Forums starts to get TOO popular, anime starts to become increasingly mainstream as a hobby, Cred Forums's board culture becomes markedly less elitist and also starts to focus on concentrated discussion threads
2013-2014 - Transitional Cred Forums
'Ironically' liking anime becomes a thing in a big way, most of old Cred Forums's favourite series are old enough to fall to the way side, anime industry dives even further into moe and LN/VN adaptations and thus drags in even more autistic westerners than it used to. For some reason pretty much every board has OC and community-driven events/stuff die off hugely at this point.
2015-2016 - New Cred Forums
Current Cred Forums. Pretty much all old boardculture is replaced, constant pseudo-generals are the norm, elitism is gone entirely except for in ironic shitposts and sakuga threads, ironic anime fandom is at an all time high, and Cred Forums is pretty much irrelevant for discussion of any big series compared to the combined mess that is tumblr/Cred Forums/twitter/discord/MAL - whereas it used to be pretty much THE go to forum for it. Common slang has also near-completely changed on a boardwide scale.

Nathaniel Walker

Generals are the single worst thing that can happen to a series. JoJo is a perfect example how a community that used to be great turned into a total shit and nowadays most of the people posting into those threads would be more at home in tumblr or /vg/, and probably came from there in the first place. There's no way to discuss JoJo on Cred Forums without the thread being overtaken by those retards and their
don't forget the PASTEBIN
lel gay priest am I right
haha check out this comic I got from tumblr it's about johnny being fat and gay

When a thread becomes a general it gets isolated from the rest of the board and starts developing it's own """culture""" and getting filled with people who "only come to Cred Forums for our general man fuck the rest XD". Plus for a series that gets weekly content people often don't have anything to really talk about and everything devolves into that kind of inane shit.

I've been coming to Cred Forums way more rarely than before this year, but welcome back.

I'm not that guy but I've seen someone say that before too. No idea if it's true though.

2010-12 for some reason were fucking markedly important for shaping the boards current sense of taste. I dunno how or why, but it feels like half the most popular series on here nowadays only started to gain traction or began back then - and they've influenced what's gotten popular ever since.

One that really hurt me the most was a guy making a thread about: youtube.com/watch?v=3qM2vHahcqQ that could have had some interesting discussion about Araki as an artist, designer and writer
Instead the swarm came and turned it into a general, it really pissed me off
Whenever they're confronted you're only met with "Well why are you here then?"

Jordan Hernandez
Jordan Hernandez

That happened with the Tokyo Ghoul threads after the anime aired as well. Then the cancerous posters jumped into a different bandwagon and all that's left is the leftovers of their passage, some retarded shitposters spouting senseless 'memes'. They drove away everyone who cared about the manga at all, including scanlators.

Jose King
Jose King

Would an /ag/ fix Cred Forums?

Jaxon Gray
Jaxon Gray

Generals aren't going to be dealt with because the current policy for Cred Forums seems to be "don't rock the boat". No mod wants to start a crusade against any problem they might see on the board because they know it's going to lead to a lot of shitposting in retaliation.

Jacob Hill
Jacob Hill

Yeah, I distinctly remember there being constant two-way pushing between series that tried to out-stay their welcome and mods trying to keep them from clinging to the board. I think Strike Witches was the earliest general that managed to maintain an obnoxiously constant presence on the board.

Shit really took off with Madoka, though. The season after where we had a big shitstorm over generals and there was a sticky up for a while. I remember that distinctly. We had a great period through 2011-2012 where the mods were really strict about generals following that debacle, but then they seemed to relax it again and all of the generals that had been chased off came right fucking back.

The Madoka movie was quite possibly the worst thing that could have happened to that franchise on Cred Forums, because it gave the generalfaggots who had been chased off, the generalfaggots so incredibly awful that they had motivated the anti-general shitstorm in the first place, an excuse to come back. The current madoka threads we still have to this fucking day are the same goddamn posters from that time, circlejerking their tripcodes ad nauseum over a now long-dead series that no longer has any need for near-constant threads.

Same shit happened to monmusu more recently. Got chased off when it stopped being periodical threads about a shitty harem manga and started to become a furry refugee camp full of fanfiction and "original characters" and then came right fucking back when they got an anime, except their "anime" threads were nothing but the same circlejerk that's remained constantly since it finished airing.

The worst part of these faggots is that they don't give a shit about the anime or manga they're creating the thread under. It's just an excuse, an incredibly flimsy excuse, to post about some niche fetish or circlejerk identities while little to no actual content of the threads is actually Cred Forums related.

Adrian Wood

Those three things plus banning generals site-wide besides on /tg/, /mu/, and /co/ would fix up this website in like a year, tops.

Unfortunately it'd require a lotta dedicated anons starting up community initiatives to revive fun stuff like r/a/dio and OC generation though, and there's just no way to cause that to happen on the staff's part.

No because the threads on it would still cause posters to adopt the habits and mannerisms of them when posting over here.

Daniel Fisher

Generals exist because people who were new to Cred Forums didn't get it so they tried to revert to other communities where there are constant threads that people discuss things in. It isn't unique to Cred Forums, just look at pretty much every popular board, or board with lots of newfags and the majority of the threads will now be generals. I remember I accidentally clicked on /soc/ and that board is almost entirely generals.

There is nothing to be done, nothing can be done. It was entertaining for all the OC, and the OC attracts the newfaggots. It can't be helped.

Robert Brooks

In my opinion, no. Generals should be discouraged, not given their own little cave to thrive in.

/vg/ is one of the most cancerous cesspools I've seen since /jp/. I thought that kind of faggotry didn't exist on Cred Forums, but it's as if generals are populated by a completely different breed of user.

Nathaniel Morris
Nathaniel Morris

I miss /new/ so fucking much.

And agreed. /pol/ was always kind of annoying but in recent years it's taken an activist slant that causes it's posters to feel like their shitposts and opinions actually fucking matter, so now they are more fervent about them than ever before and leak their shit all over every board.

It's an utter failure as a containment board.

William Howard
William Howard

Removing /pol/ would do more harm than good. The users are already on this site and wouldn't just vanish. It was the same thing with /b/ back in the day before that board became irrelevant. I used to lurk /x/ before they became a complete echochamber and /b/ raided us regularly. Some people wanted /b/ to be removed but it would have done more harm than good as well. It's like the old saying goes: if you remove the toilet you'll have to shit in the living room.

/ag/ is the final flag that Cred Forums has actually died. It won't fix anything.
The de facto killing of the board by splitting into separate communities is only codified de jure by literally splitting the board. That's it. There's no coming back. The board itself is a container now for communities, no longer a community unto itself.

Easton Fisher

There is one user here who blatantly makes flame war threads for JoJo and Fate/stay night and both fanbase still fall for it. That thread is so fucking hilarious holy shit.

Dominic Foster

I don't think any mod has the power to do that even if they wanted to.

Notice how we get practically no capcode posts anymore? Something tells me they're kept on such a tight leash that the sort of proactive solutions we relied on in the past are no longer possible.

This is the tragic catch-22 of modern Cred Forums. If you try to shitpost something alien off of your board to protect board culture, you'll just get banned for it and nothing will get done because the mods and janitors seem to only enforce the rules of the site exactly as written and pay no heed to board culture or participating in the resolution of problems themselves. If you do nothing, nothing gets done because the current mods seem to have no interest in contributing anything to identifying or addressing board issues. Self-moderation of the type and to the degree which has always been applied copiously to the board is dead, and moderation killed it. Killed it, but then has done nothing to fill the void left by it. This is why we have shit like 24/7 shingeki no koyjin generals where they literally share tumblrs and discuss tumblr bloggers and western tumblr artists instead of talking about the manga.

It was the same thing with /b/ back in the day before that board became irrelevant.
/b/ ddos itself for weeks back when it was on its own server,
all that happened was a couple days of shitposting and then they eventually dispersed.

I think it's partially because of past incidents. Remember the old siz shitstorms with faked chatlogs? And how moot banned talking to mods on IRC afterwards? It's too easy to get people riled up over a fake mod post, so why try?

Jaxson Thompson

See I disagree with you on this because /pol/ is unique compared to other boards people have called for the removal of before. It's posters already use reddit, facebook, stormfront, cripplechan, voat, discord, and etc. as well as many other political forums and just use /pol/ as a way to talk about the same fucking shit on here as they do there - they're /pol/iticians first, 4channers second.

If you banned them and clamped down on the resulting shitposts the most fanatic cunts would just fuck off to /r/the_donald or wherever else would take them and the rest of the less fervent ones would just keep peacefully using the other boards as normal.

It's not about kicking them off the site, it's about shutting down their homebase on here. The entire board is practically a rightwinger general and it functions just the same as any other one - remove it and their sense of community will die, and so too will their shitposting.

Funnily enough they seriously think they are the closest to "old /b/" nowadays. That board is filled with newfags who have no idea about anything and just want a "name" to attach to themselves so that they can feel like they are a part of something "big".

If history has proven anything it;s that no matter how blatantly the mods fuck up in trying to do good, or how angry the board gets with them, things always pass from memory and return to normal.

Remember nipplemod? People laugh at that now. The mods are as good as forgiven for their fuckup and it's made no lasting impact on the board. As stupid as that shit was, at least they were goddamn trying for a change. Since then it's been like we no longer have mods at all and there's just some automated bot that silently handles reports or something.

I know I personally shitposted in a great deal of mod threads that k-on threads qualified as those 'long term discussions' that were already banned and needed to be removed.

The demarcation point for 'long term' given was when rolling threads existed outside of the season something was airing. I thought that was perfectly reasonable. You could have something like Sora No Woto (or Madoka which made SNW look like practice) burning through hundreds of threads while it was airing then it was time to stop and move the dedicated posters over to the text boards.

Too bad this policy is deader than Elvis.

Don't forget anonymous, /pol/ was created largely due to complaints of /new/ refugees posting on other boards (particularly /k/). Deleting a board several orders of magnitude larger than old /new/ will only produce the same problem on steroids.

I apologize for everything.

When I donned this trip and befriend people like Taiga, we had a single goal that united us despite all the shitposting: we would try to be class clowns and make people laugh. That was the old spirit of Cred Forums that started disappearing, something we were clinging to dearly.

Not everyone appreciated our attempts at being class clowns, which were heavily rooted in ironic elements. But at least some people got the joke and laughed along, and that kind of kept us going. I had an alternative goal alongside the class clown thing which kept me going as well, but seeing anons find joy in stupid shit we said rekindled the old feelings we got from the past.

And then the third wave tripfags came. They saw what we were doing and misinterpreted the entire thing. They saw it as a means to get "e-fame" and "reputation" on an anonymous image board and older tripfags like myself and Taiga are responsible for their creation.

I'm so sorry. ;_;

C'mon don't say that...

The problem is that /pol/ has a victim mentality and they think of themselves as some bringers of truth and redpills (ironically being probably the most "tell me what to think" -people on the entire site) so if you removed the board you would definitely cause them to raid other boards and "inform" us how Cred Forums has been compromised.

Too bad this policy is deader than Elvis.
It died with the text boards, really.

"Where do we put them" has become an issue in dealing with every general that arises on Cred Forums because for some reason "anywhere but here" isn't a valid answer or something. Genertalfaggots always whine that "if we didn't do it here, we would have nowhere on Cred Forums to circlejerk and discuss our favourite tripfags" as though that's an issue or anyone should care about it. It's gotten to the point wherein order to cling to "legitimacy," threads for seasonal series do their best to try and generate a "fandom" (fuck, I hate that word) just so that they're more difficult to get rid of and have a better chance at forming a general after their show finishes airing. And it's been fucking working, too.

I think the way moot was able to shit on and ruin /pol/ for two weeks straight without them managing to successfully retaliate against other boards proved they're incapable of actually tuining the site.

It was like you said, the actually fervent ones fucked off to other sites temporarily and the more sane ones just posted as normal.

I think you'd have to wait until the election is over though. Once Trump loses the board will naturally quiet down hugely after a few weeks as people grow bored of political discussion like they do after every election cycle, and it'll be ripe for the harvest.

Of course not, that /qa/shit was just full of crossboarders from the meta board coming over to try and play leader with Cred Forums. Any time an Cred Forums thread is crosslinked to another board you can be certain it will be full of garbage like that.

The only consensus was "down with generals" but that's been the consensus since goddamn 2008 and nothing can be done about it as long as mods continue to protect generals and sit on their ass about the issue.

Eli Campbell

I remember moot saying he has an idea how to deal with generals in the 2013 panel. Then when he quit the site he basically said "Yeah I have no idea how to do it". He realized the userbase actively wants generals and he can't do anything about that.

That's more of a sitewide issue.
Cred Forums collectively does not want generals, and has a culture incompatible with them. The generals that linger on our board are always a minority of users, a minority that's permitted to have a disproportionate amount of influence on the board because they're safe within their permanent reserved point on the catalog, protected by mods and unmolested by the board's actual culture. Most of our current generals either see 20 unique IPs in 12 hours or are safe spaces for crossboarders that like 1 series but don't want to deal with Cred Forums culture -a literal /vg/ for anime that's metastasized to our front page. Every general on our board falls into one of these two categories and they are brought up in every single meta thread as public enemy #1 because Cred Forums does not want them, and because self-moderation is useless against them so long as the mods protect them from self-moderation.

Some boards let themselves be completely overrun by generals and became general boards, like /int/ If they want that, power to them, let them be shit. But as long as the board's culture and generals are incompatible, generals can fuck right the hell off.

A lot of people who advocate for creation of /ag/ hold naive belief that what would happen is that current Cred Forums generals would migrate to /ag/ and we would live happily ever after. Unfortunately, that's not what would happen. Before /vg/ was made, there were less than ten real generals on /v/ that could really be called generals. Same thing would happen with /ag/. People would start creating dozens and dozens of new generals on /ag/.

Cred Forums thrives on seasonal anime discussion, and creating /ag/ would guarantee that at least the top ten most popular anime of every season would get its own general there, diverting users and traffic from Cred Forums. So it would be much harder to discuss seasonal anime here, since there would be less people willing to discuss it. And if you did try to discuss an anime that is unfortunate enough to have its own general on /ag/, you'd get faggots telling you to fuck off back to /ag/. And you probably wouldn't be able to enjoy discussing that anime on /ag/ either, since the general itself would be garbage like 99% of the generals on this site are.

/ag/ would literally kill Cred Forums.
