I've been looking at the feedback and such, and I have to ask, what do you wish for the mods to do?

We've seen an apparent influx of outsiders coming in, and I've seen a lot more complaints. But a lot of these complaints are not rule violations, so we've been avoiding resorting to bans in those instances that are not rule violations. I guess you think this isn't working.

Should we be giving bans for "not following TC posting etiquette" or even "not following TC poster culture"?

I guess what I am asking is this: Do you want total moderation? If necessary, do you want moderation more strict and radical than anything you can even imagine today?

If you think it's natural and not the least bit surprising why are we arguing about this?
Are you really that bothered by my saying "I don't like _ becuase _. - This is a shitposting idiot who needs to go back to 4chan."? it's just an exaggeration. Of course people don't say things exactly like that (aside from that orimo thread where people said things exactly that) If you like I will admit I should have phrased that differently. perhaps what might have been more appropriate would have been: "I don't like _ becuase _. - This person and his opinion is wrong and I'm compelled to tell him why"
I can see how I may have been mistake in categorizing that shaft thread. I could have sworn in the nisemonogatari thread some people were becoming overly defensive and 'fullretard' in the presences of some negative comments. I recall one person going off on a rant about negativity the series receives in response to someone posting a meme image poking fun at the series. but uppon checking on that it seems to not be the case.

>Most people here aren't exactly willing or capable of accepting things they don't like, be it a work of fiction or an argument.
This is something I mostly see outside of /an/. drugs, women, cars, sports, the entirety of /so/ /ot/ /fb/, comments on site mentality ect. Unless of course they're generalizing, in which case I do indeed see plenty of it on /an/. hating things from Shaft, kyoani, moe, genres of anime, so on. But when it comes to more specific things I think people tend to avoid watching what they don't like and as such there's not many around to complain about it. there were only 11 instances of people saying something bad about a anime on the first 4 pages of /an/ that I found. It should be expected that someone will say something bad about a anime they didn't like before dropping it, 4 of those 11 examples specifically stated they were dropping it.

I still believe a person's opinion shouldn't need to hold any weight. If they don't like something they should be free to say so just as list 3) is free to s

Because you're acting like it's not, like it only ever happens on /tc/ and like we should get do something about it.

>it's just an exaggeration.

Brilliant, just brilliant. Nothing better than arguing about stuff you don't even mean.

>I don't like _ becuase _. - This person and his opinion is wrong and I'm compelled to tell him why

This does happen. And by 'does happen' I mean 'does happen everywhere on the internet'. Hell, not even limited to internet.

So what are supposed to do now? Stop discussing stuff altogether or just never reply to each other?

I really hope you're not arguing in favor of the people that post on these subjects. There are some exceptions, but, for the most part, the topics described above are full-on Ford Driver culture, and constitute an entirely different argument from the one you two gentlemen are currently having.

A few reminders:

- There is a hide thread button.
- Meta shit ALWAYS goes in /fb/, not the thread that offends you.
- If you have an idea for a decent thread, post it. Don't complain about the lack of content until you at least try to encourage it yourself.
- Posting in a thread just to whine about it only serves to increase the thread's lifespan by promoting arguments.
- People will inevitably ragepost in threads they don't like. Take it easy and let them keep raging instead of responding.
- You don't need to announce that you think [x] is better than TC and you're leaving. Just leave.
- Relax.

>It sends a message to the person getting banned

It doesn't
The only thing a person who "gets banned" takes away from the experience is the knowledge that the moderators are assholes. Nobody ever thinks to themselves "oh I got banned, I guess I'd better straighten up and fly right". Anonymous posters on imageboards are extremely egotistical and they rarelyAKA never admit a mistake. They don't need to because they can just jump on another IP and keep doing whatever they want.

I made this picture to illustrate why I'm right and you're wrong.
>> No. 3882 [Edit]

>people who are constantly complaining that they want X type of content or Y type of end user banned from the site need to realize that the moderators really have no ability to fulfill the demands placed upon them.

Depends. If they say 'I want OreImo gone' or 'I want shoujo threads gone from /an/' then sure, it's not happening. However, if they say 'I want Ford Driver shit gone' and 'I want 4chan lingo gone' then there's a pretty good chance of that happening.

>once everyone accepts that fact then they can also accept the fact that they have to either learn to take it easy

One day you too may realize that some people find in plain impossible to take it easy in an environment of ironic shitposting and epik maymays.

I don't know what is going on here. The decline in quality this last month has been abysmal. I would like to see a return to stricter moderation, and fuck anyone who complains. Less sarcastic one-liners, pointless/random threads like 'how old are you' or threads with just a picture and no text, references to other boards, etc etc. I thought the moderation did fine in the past in discerning what should and should not be punished, and I think it's time you stepped in and reminded everyone that what has been going lately is unacceptable.

>The decline in quality this last month has been abysmal

everyone left for /ota/, which is - coincidentally - a bit over a month old and is actually fun to be on.
the only people who are still on /tc/ are the type who like to complain incessantly about other people's posts.
>> No. 3836 [Edit]

/ota/ is more or less the same terrible shit as 4chan unless its changed drastically in the last few weeks or so since I last saw it, so good riddance to anyone who would prefer there over here.

Not that this place has been very good lately either (3D woman thread still going strong in /so/!)

How come /TC/ no longer cares about otaku topics such as anime, manga, VNs, hentai, etc.?
Look at where all the traffic is on this site: neurotypicals talking about sexual politics on /so/ and motorists discussing 3DPD shit on the off topic board.

Have you thought about registering Wohno-chan? The W is for wannabe because I get a pretty strong impression that most of the current class of end users on this site adopted the pretense of otaku to give them "cred" on 4chan as they certainly don't actually care the least bit about the actual topics that would appeal to the typical otaku.

Its rare these days to even see an /an/ appear on the front page, let alone a /ma/ or really any of the otaku boards.

>/so/ was created well after tohno-chan was already well established

Thats news to me. My memory fails me but I think its been there since ib4f. Maybe it was made during the .tk era, and there were very few users then.

4-ch isn't really appropriate for most of us, as you can see maybe ten percent of users posting there are actually completely new to *chans, and you can tell through their naive sort of posting style and putting their real names in the name area (I think they somehow end up there via Google).
>> No. 3821 [Edit]

It has, it hasn't even been half a year between the creation of /tc/ and /so/, hell, I'm not even sure if it has even been half of that, I don't remember it that well. But yeah it's a completely pointless argument.

You are so wrong. It's been here since the beginning.

You're correct. It's been here since the first few weeks of ib4f days.

Well, if you're just anxious about showing yourself in here... well... no.

If you just want to tangentially bitch about Aku no Hana here in /fb/, you should better join the thread on /an/ and express your thoughts there.

If you actually want to do something nice about it, regardless of it being based on yourself or not, I'd say you can and you should post it on /cr/.

do you think you could make a special hidden board for one piece/naruto/bleach discussion and move the oremio thread into it?
oremio is the same tier of anime as naturo, et al. and the oremio thread is shitting up /an/
i don't know what the secret hidden boards here are, but i've heard there are a lot of them and i get the impression that the hidden boards is where most of the tohno-chan posters are, so why not move the oremio thread to one of the "inner circle" boards instead of having it shit up /an/?

The banner thread is no longer needed, the site already has a lot of banners and nobody has even posted in the banner thread in two months because the class of people who make banners is no longer the same type of people as the current class of Tohno-chan users. The people who made all the banners here are ex-Tohno-chan users, people who were actually enthusiastic about anime, mange, etc., but who left the site because they found that they were in the minority here and there were few other who shared their enthusiasms and the Tohno-chan is currently populated by sad-sacks who want to feel sorry for themselves and that feel that posing as a Japanese hikikomori will emphasize to the world how pity-worthy they are.

/fb/ is for feedback. People suggest shit, or complain, and others can discuss it. Nobody is forcing you to look at it. If you hate meta discussion stay away. It doesn't even appear on the front page and it occupies but a mere two letters on the navigation bar up there.

Without /fb/ there would be no forum with which people could debate and gauge the acceptability of e.g drug discussions.
