Rules, Regulations and Moderation For /a

Hiro has asked us to create a thread on each board for discussing the problems that are facing us and how to deal with them. He also wants us to create our own set of rules so that the mods will be regulated to follow them.

Remember mods, Hiro talked to you guys and you said it was fine to have one thread up about this.

The 60-second timer really is bullshit though.

Doesn't /co/ have a normal 30-second timer? Why must an image board have such a long limit in boards where image dumps were frequent?

Years ago you could come on Cred Forums and jump into a storytime thread on most days, now you'd be lucky to find one unless they have a Jew pass.

It's such a simple fix. Why are we here to suffer?

It is one per board. The old one was the very last thread in the catalog on page 10 when I posted it. I waited until the very last minute to post this thread so I could still link forward and backward for ease of archiving. As of 15 seconds ago, it has been archived.

Christian Ramirez

Just because there is a technical excuse doesn't mean you should have such a thread going 24/7. We don't need a fucking mini-/q/ on Cred Forums. Also while I'm at it -

ban all generals
Not happening. I agree some of them suck, but, you can't arbitrarily nix shit without a real replacement or ruling on such things. /ag/ would be a stupid fucking idea since that would only concentrate circlejerks further without anyone suggesting not to, and officially canonize some of Cred Forums's worst demons as welcome and OK. It would be counter to what you want.

My suggestion? Act on the behavior in generals you don't like. Call it out, report off topic circlejerks etc. Don't like shipping or het/yuri or studio wars garbage? Express your opinion that this isn't what we want Cred Forums to condone, and so on.

They don't need a replacement, this is a image board not a fucking traditional forum. Cred Forums ran perfectly fine and actually /better/ without them.

Do you not ever leave your own generals or something? People have, for years. People have bitched about them and tried to spam them away FOR FUCKING YEARS SINCE THEIR INCEPTION. The mods even joined at one point and then they started to ban people for voicing the anti-general sentiment. People don't spam the front page to stop them because it's became obvious it fucking does nothing. Not just that, most users who are against generals are people who have been here for a long time. The sentiment started to die down because everyone just fucking left because its obvious no one fucking cares about the site anymore, not the admin or mods.

Matthew Gutierrez

Mods are just acting really strange lately
for example you have Cred Forums that its decently moderated, then some mod goes crazy on /tg/ and bans Dorf Fort + makes /qst/ disaster even worse.
It doesn´t help that the moderation team never comunicates with us
you know what user, maybe the scariest truth is that they are from Cred Forums and even /v/ seems to know us better

We're not talking about dub threads or anything rule breaking. We're just talking about non-general anime threads. They're not being made, so the only conclusion is that the majority likes generals.

If you guys hated generals that much, you'd make anime threads that weren't generals and push them off the board. But you don't.

The sentiment started to die down because everyone just fucking left because its obvious no one fucking cares about the site anymore, not the admin or mods.

So they're not the majority anymore. Thanks for proving my point.

I don't think there's really anything wrong with Cred Forums currently aside from the 60 second limit for posting.

Like, the few generals we have is like a quarantine thread and we have an equal amount of misc threads that discusses anime and shit and storytime threads pop up every now and then too.

And Cred Forums is self moderated enough that some things that Cred Forums thinks needs to be fixed pretty much fixes itself.

Wyatt Rodriguez

Summary from last thread:

1. Improve consistency of guidelines from board to board. No recommendations are allowed on Cred Forums, but recommendations are fine on /k/. What is going on here?

2. Mods should stop abusing short bans and should take ban appeals more seriously instead of blanket denying/blocking all appeals with no transparency.

3. Bring back ability to delete own OP on all boards.

4. Bring back ability to bump own threads.

5. Bring back visible sage.

6. Bring back ability to announce reports and sages.

7. Mods should stop micro-managing conversations by deleting short shitposts that no one cares about anyway. You're not helping and no one asked you to do this.

8. Bring back a /z/ board where people can go if they are banned for infractions other than CP and post with no rules or post-timers.

9. Bring back /l/ where we can post lewd loli images. Trying to make /l/ threads work on /b/ is like being marooned on a desert island. Spam and non-enthusiasts filling the thread make for a bad environment, and the speed that /b/ moves means that threads are short-lived and tend to have a low number of unique IPs, even if you bump them slowly.

Juan Harris

Because by that time moot was fucking losing it and got sick of all the dumb shit. /vg/ was literally an attempt to appease the cancerous idiots instead of dealing with the problem so that he didn't have to do anything. This was clearly a mistake and he outright fucking realized that. He even gave a speech for generals in his leaving speech.

Generals are /literally/ not something belongs on chans or functions here. The cancer they cultivate is a direct cause of the concept of themselves, not because they have idiots. You can sit there banning the fuck tards in them all day long, it will never change them or make them better. You can't make something that exist just to stagnate to not stagnate.

If people want to generalcancer, add back the text boards and fuck back off to there.

Jonathan Jackson

5. Bring back visible sage.
Better to make all threads sage by default, and make them bumpable only with age.

Fuck off mod, you're so fucking obvious since you just ignore shit you can't be bothered to deal with. Generals are literally cancer and have only ever contributed to the degradation of quality all over Cred Forums. And if you degenerates actually believe these newshits stay in their "containment" threads, you're obviously from /v/ and have never stepped outside those threads yourselves.

6. Bring back ability to announce reports and sages.
this is literally a public downvote, no
7. Mods should stop micro-managing conversations by deleting short shitposts that no one cares about anyway.
and leave up every "xD" shitpost? no
9. Bring back /l/
there are so many fucking porn boards

Jacob Torres
Jacob Torres

I don't hate generals per se, but I'm concerned by the ever-growing amount of generals taking up space on the board. Constant generals for franchises with no new anime/manga are unnecessary and it just takes another obsessive fanbase to have another general take root here. Those kinds of generals end up as chat rooms more than anything which really shouldn't be allowed. Even 24/7 generals for monthly manga like SnK or Hero Academia are pointless as people eventually run out of relevant things to discuss halfway through the month.

tl;dr Why must there be constant threads for shit that aren't regularly receiving new content?

Brandon Richardson

10. Mods need to stop deleting any thread that has even the slightest hint of being off-topic or loosely Cred Forums-related. We used to have so much more original content creation on Cred Forums, but now your thread has to be directly related to a specific anime or else it gets deleted after like 150 posts, which is in a way worse. If mods would just delete the threads they deem to be against the rules IMMEDIATELY, then at least we'd all be clear about the rules, but they try to have it both ways and let you have a thread for maybe 40 minutes to an hour before deleting it, which is super annoying.

Practically every other board on Cred Forums allows original content creation except Cred Forums. Absolutely no reason for this.

Landon Phillips

Gavin Evans

Epic justification for general ignorance you redditard.
Many people do not know what the fuck sage is, nor is it a downvote you asshat.

Kayden Sanders

2. Mods should stop abusing short bans and should take ban appeals more seriously instead of blanket denying/blocking all appeals with no transparency.
Shitposters will ban evade all they want, it's been proved for years now.

4. Bring back ability to bump own threads.
This is just shitposting fuel for the people who still use sage.

7. Mods should stop micro-managing conversations by deleting short shitposts that no one cares about anyway. You're not helping and no one asked you to do this.
Shitposting is fucking shitposting, but yeah if you have a shitposting thread delete that first and then return to your micro management.

9. Bring back /l/ where we can post lewd loli images.
Just don't, loli is great on Cred Forums as is is since you discuss that shit with Cred Forums, creating /l/ would mean fucking /b/ 2.0

Henry Rodriguez
Henry Rodriguez

tl;dr Why must there be constant threads for shit that aren't regularly receiving new content?

Because people want to discuss them, even if it's pointless garbage like "I want to fuck X".

Wyatt Price

How much space they end up taking anyways? When the board moves slowly, it takes for up to two hours for a thread to get archived, and at peak hours it's as short as 30 minutes. Generals don't take any realistically significant amount of space, and otherwise you can always have the thread you want to keep alive bumped or something.

First off faggots we need to stop making shetpost generals and dumbass posts that are just irrelevant shetposting that kill quality threads.

Second are the image limits going to get increased so there's no continual threads?

Third, what kinds of generals are other anons whining about? There's threads that have discussions going on; mandatory generals need not apply.

Hudson Perry
Hudson Perry

Exactly, they don't. And they won't unless you educate them or make that shit visible.
Invisible sage has done absolutely nothing to improve anything.
This place gets more and more popular every day, and it being visible makes fags that don't lurk anymore atleast aware of its presence and function.

Colton Ramirez
Colton Ramirez

Okay, but people don't need an eternal general for that. Just make threads when they feel like it and let the discussion die out normally when people are done instead of having to bump slow-moving generals for no reason and have the threads filled with inane off-topic chatter.

Christopher Johnson

It's not so bad now, but I'm just concerned about things in the long-run where if there are too many obsessive fanbases insistent on keeping discussions alive for no reason.

Why not just increase the number of threads each board can have but have the auto-sage limit remain the same? Hypothetically, if there were double the number of threads that each board can have, than generals would stay up twice as long for people to use. Could also implent a system where ff the number of posts per minute or whatever falls below a threshold it gets pruned automatically. You'd have to up the max number of images though, too.

- decrease max posts per thread to 300, 500 really encourages generals
- 30 second delay between posts instead of the 60 (which were supposed to be temporary anyway)
- Show the old front page instead of the catalog to newfags so they don't confuse Cred Forums with a normal forum and have to actually lurk before understanding the site and posting
- reintroduce public sage, newfags don't know that such a function even exists

Nathan Campbell

If you have to samefag to simulate discussion its probably because
a. your op is shit and didnt simulate anything most like you went what is your opinion on x, made some meme op thread or went x thread
b. no one has fucking anything at the moment to say because they already fucking discussed it and you're just an obsessive fag who just doesn't know how to move the fuck on after a thread has died

When people look for an active thread, they look at the top of the catalog, or on page 0 if they are retarded enough to use paged view. They don't look on page 5 or halfway down the catalog for new threads. Most people assume that a thread halfway down the catalog without any replies is a shit topic and don't even bother giving it the time of day.

Please pick an example that isn't the bane shitposting board and I might take you seriously. Old anime threads occur all the time and get lots of posts in them at a normal rate and sometimes even hit bump limit. It just doesn't fucking happen constantly. No one wants to talk about the same thing constantly but actual autists. Threads thrive if it interests people and dies if it doesn't. If it dies, no one who cared was probably one, try again later. A lot of the time, the OP itself will determine if people click on the thread.

If we were in an older Cred Forums, I could even bring up the front page argument because threads don't have fucking topics, only a conversation. So, people would join random threads for the current conversation. Sadly, the introduction of the convince features and the catalog prevent me from making that one.

I don't think Cred Forums should bend over to accommodate generals, there are enough pages as it stands. It's the sort of discourse in constant generals that is more of a concern. They really shouldn't be used as a chat room.

The momentum doesn't count when so many generals are carried by off-topic, idle chatter in lieu of a lack of new content. If one wishes to resume discourse from an old general thread, one can simple bring up the topic again or link to an archived post. It's not very hard to do so.

As one who makes threads on occasion I understand it can be difficult to stimulate discussion at times, but think of it as in incentive to craft an attractive opening post(i.e. putting effort) and have some patience for people to notice it.

This, asking for a laundry list of wide systemic or rule changes is unrealistic to say the least.

You guys should know you're wasting your breath playing armchair admin. Are there things you guys want that can actually be accomplished? I've been around here a long, long fucking time and I think a few minor tweaks to what counts as global 6 or 3 material would improve a lot of the board including generals by proxy.

For example, can we all agree studio wars threads are pretty shitty? Howabout ruining threads for shows with nonstop bickering over shipping crap or het vs yuri back-and-forth? Do people think stopping a handful of generals of established series (and causing a bunch of shitty drama and backlash over that) will prevent this more widespread mold from taking root in new series each season? It does not seem like it.

Shitty generals are a foregone conclusion; but what would stopping them do to prevent threads from new shows from going bad? Are you using the Jojo, SnK and Monmusu threads all the time or just want them gone because they're an eyesore, while you go back to your re:zero thread that is completely fucking ruined by a bunch of faggot trolls and pretend it's a better situation since at least this is a new series?

To me it's more important to have seasonal show threads not be dictated and ruined by a few drama queens / easy baiting trolls than it is to worry about series you don't even care about. Seriously get your priorities straight.

Issue C&Ds to chronic ban evaders, and report them to law enforcement or bring them to court for disrupting Cred Forums's services if they do not comply. Cred Forums is an LLC, so they are abusing a company's services.

I agree. The ability to moderate Cred Forums requires a lot of extremely specialized knowledge to not issue bans erroneously. If pic related didn't have a filename of "To Love Ru," then mods wouldn't recognize where it's from, have any idea that it's from an anime, and would think that it's from a hentai and probably ban me, even though Hiro has made it clear that this image is 100% allowed on Cred Forums if spoilered. Even saying all this, explaining exactly why it's OK to post it, there is a 50/50 chance that I'll get banned anyway just because mods fucking hate us.

Generals are fucking killing the ability to discuss the series; take Mon Musume, you can't discuss new chapters since faggots will spam their FIRST FOR X, THREAD DANK MEME XD if you post in their general and the same faggots will come to your thread if you make one of your own.

The removing of generals is something that should be done chan-wide (besides /vg/ for obvious reasons)

It turns /g/ into personal tech review, /sp/ into homolust, and literally caused the existence of /mlp/ and /soc/

Joseph Rodriguez

The general completely ruined Jojo threads. Jojo threads used to be very nice and the posters were regarded as good, but nowadays it's filled with tumblrites and /vg/ rejects.

Ban JoJo generals and the people who sperg about the pastebin or forgetting some bullshit "thread customs". Ban everyone who says /jojo/. Allow threads only when a new episode is out, for a few days or so and strictly for the discussion of the new episode instead of the usual "lel gay priest am I right".

The generalfags are a loud minority and got here only in the recent years.

Christian Ortiz

Ian Reed
Ian Reed

The definition of a general is more or less this: a general is a recurring thread that is artificially kept alive, despite the exhausted topic. The thread is bumped with posts that are barely related to the topic and/or are off-topic. This describes the majority of generals.

To demonstrate how it works in practice in contrast to common threads:
A common thread dies off as no one has anything to add to the discussion. Interest in the topic kept the thread going for 150 posts. It died, but it was enjoyable while it lasted. Ephemerality in action. Absolutely beautiful.

Then we have the general. It is bumped, even though little to nothing of substance is being discussed. It doesn't die, since it is artificially kept alive, so other threads' topics get less time to have a chance at getting explored. Another thread is made to take the general's place when it unavoidably has to die, due to have hit the bump limit.
The interest here lies not in the topic itself, but the opportunity to discuss it. The thread is kept up so its good-for-nothing resident posters can comfortably post with equally shit-minded users, just so they can keep having each other's company. In the off-chance that a new subject-matter pops up, it is nothing short of fortunate that a thread is up so it can be discussed!
The average user whose interest is not big enough to tolerate the subpar quality of the thread will avoid said thread.

Isolated from the rest of the board and deprived of the blessings of anonymity, the thread diminishes in content and post quality, and the general becomes nothing more than a glorified chatroom. A truly sorry state. Absolutely hideous.

These seem to do more harm than good. For starters they never seem to lock the thread after issuing the ban, which makes the thread turn into an endless spam of mods=gods or mods=faggots which is nearly as cancerous as the op.
I have also seen cases where the thread moves past the retarded op and turns into an actually decent thread, only to be derailed by a public ban.
Visible sages don't do much either, if anything i'd expect to see an increase in the number of people using sage as a downvote.

Visible sage isn't a fucking downvote.
Actually, yes it is. It fucking is because sage has no actual purpose. It's sole purpose is to not bump the thread and visible sage is to tell people you haven't bumped a thread. That's it. Outside of that, it's usage depends on the user, board and the culture. If people want it to be a fucking downvote, it fucking is. There is fucking tons of uses for visible sage outside of self moderation which are all valid and useful. The only thing people have against it is downvoting boogieman. Which, is a literal boogieman, because people are going to downvote with or without it NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. I personally preferred the sage bombing of threads than the current state.

Visible sage was a useful feature that was removed due to a small minority of idiots because moot was at his I give up on everything stage.

Exhentai general to one of the handful of porn boards.
Image dump threads to either /c/ or outright delete them.
Seiyuu 3DPD worship threads to /jp/.

With those gone, all that remains is actual Cred Forums content to moderate. Sure, there are other shitty threads but first thing is first: getting rid of shit which outright belongs on other boards.

What needs to happen is mods actually need to enforce the rules. As it is right now, the rules hardly get enforced in any way what so ever.

As it is right now (jii.moe/Nkis1tD0l.jpg) this person is a the sole "authority" for Cred Forums and he does nothing to help the site as he wants it all to be his personal hug box safe space (self admitted). You can see first hand examples of his bias all the time, in the fact he bans people for things that do not break the rules, but are just things he personally dislikes. You can also see him play clear favoritism. He will ban people for being "off topic" if they are saying something he dislikes, but if someone is replying to the person he banned and talking about the same "off topic" subject but is saying things the mod personally likes, then he is not even touched. Blatant double standards and personal bias. That type of action is directly against the rules themselves, as said by moot.

He's so new he doesn't remember that Cred Forums /b/ and /g/ were basically the same board for 10+ years

The newer, strict rules to appease autists like you that need their isolated hugbox are cancer.

Is this a thread where I can write my opinions?

Now there are literally zero reasons for this trash, but the mod is not removing this
Hiro asked for it and anons want moderation improved.

The only anons against these threads have ulterior motives are are likely generalfags, who are desperate to protect their cancerous threads, and moderators, who are desperate to protect their cancerous lack of moderation.

Good.
At least 95% of the faggots on Cred Forums today are fucking cancer.
