There should be some kind of way to inform people of the standards of the site so that people don't post '/a/ SHIT' again. But how? The rules do give people the general tone of things (even though they're mainly just a list of specific 'do not do' things), and after lurking a while soeone would get the hang of it.

The ban was for using the word "based." I wasn't even mad, I wanted to show I was humorous about it, that I wasn't really annoyed.

Come on, it's one day out of your life you couldn't post. It's not like you're being persecuted. In fact, making a big deal out of it is making matters worse.

If you knew what based means, you would know it isn't a good thin for TC.

Like I said I exaggerated there on purpose. And obviously memes refers to 4chan ones we ran away from (well, at least some of us). Greentext, image macros, dubz, shit like that.

Not to mention when I said banned I meant one day bans like the one >>3409 got, not perma IP range bans.

>I didn't come here to get shouted at, I want to enjoy myself and relax.

Sometimes 'enjoying yourself' and 'relaxing' can also mean you are ruining stuff for others, as showcased in this thread. 'I just want to enjoy myself and post some funny meemz, what the hell is your problem'. Of course I'm not saying that you think that way (I seriously doubt that), just an example.

For the better or for the worse 'take-it-easy-ism' is pretty much gone now. And if that's the case I'd rather make the best of it and hope the mods will purge /a/ shit with iron fist and banhammer than let everybody do as they please.

I agree about the anger thing. I like to think that I respond with a very constructive attitude when it comes to things like this, and I think that's the best way to be. With way more traffic than we had back in the really early tc days, though, I think that the quality of posting is important to focus some attention toward; we shouldn't just turn a blind eye to shitposting when it becomes more and more prevalent. I think I'm actually far less elitist than many people here, with regards to 3d and normalcy and such, since I don't really care if people talk about how they might have real life friends or have had a girlfriend in a past life on /so/ or /ot/ and stuff, but I also don't really care that the community has shunned that, either. I do feel that 'elitism' based on shitposting is quite appropriate, though. There's a way to keep the quality of posting a priority, AND take it easy. I really don't want to see this place become a 4chan clone, which I'm glad to say I don't see happening.

So, while I do share your sentiment on a lot of matters here, I think I side with >>3414 >>3418 more. It would be nice if all we had to do was take it easy and bad posters would stay away, but wanting active mods to regulate annoying behaviour is also what brought us here from 4chan in the beginning.

Can we formally ask that people not abuse spoilers? Misused spoilers degrade the quality of your post and, in turn, degrade the quality of the site. If there's something that you want to say that you think is off-topic to discussion and you don't want to derail the thread, you should consider not saying it at all, or being more thoughtful about the words you use. Hiding the words you're so embarrassed to be saying behind an ugly black bar is hardly going to prevent anybody from reading it, (and responding, if they have something to say to it,) anyway.

If you think that abusing spoilers adds flare and personality to your otherwise bland post, it almost never does. Put more thought into your post or just realize that you're not on /a/ anymore and don't need to do silly shit like that here.

And above all of that, it adds confusion. Sometimes I don't know if it's actually a spoiler about something or just the continuation of somebody's thought that they figured would be made more interesting if I'm SURPRISED!!! when I read it.

This place is partially /a/'s dirty laundry, but I also like to think that it's the evolution of /a/. Let's grow past these /a/-level shenanigans and promote positive and meaningful discussion here.

So, my suggestion is that it becomes formally discouraged in the rules, mods be encouraged to edit spoilers out of uselessly spoilered posts, it becomes encouraged to report senseless spoilering and if anybody's feeling ambitious, when a spoiler tag is written in the comment field, a little note be added to the right of the comment box that says something like "Please do not abuse spoilers," or "Use, don't abuse".

So today I realized that Tohnochan is blocked at my school because it's under the category "Games".

I love the community here, even the shitty aspects of it (the preceding couple of posts are a good example) are more endearing and inadverdently comical than they are irritating. I even find myself missing some of the more annoying posters that have since left, such as giascle, from time to time. It's just so comfortable here, like the extended family that I never had.
/mai/ in particular is a special place to me, it's almost amazing how the board can remain kind and supportive without turning into a complete cirlejerk.
I've never visited the irc, though.

I think that kakusu discourages discussion a lot.

Arguably, the only real purpose for it is to make comments that you don't want people to respond to. It could be argued that you just don't want uninitiated people (people not previously active in the thread) to respond to your posts, so using kakusu should be useful for that, right? Sure, except it's discouraging discussion by excluding people who aren't scouring every page of every board for stuff to talk about.

The more people there are who will see your posts, the more people there are who will have something to add to the conversation. This is something that's a problem on tohno-chan, because we have active users a lot of the time, but still don't get many posts.

Another argument that might be made is that you don't want to clog up the front page with certain posts in already-active threads--but we're a slow enough site for this to not matter at all, at the moment. In the future, if high traffic "clogging up" the front page becomes a problem, it could just be reformed to allow for "Recent Posts" board-specific filtering and/or active thread notifications, or something along those lines.

It's a practically useless function and appears to adds no value to the site or quality of the site; it only subtracts.

There's too much meta discussion within threads and not enough actual discussion. Unless some kind of rule is added to discourage this kind of trolling/shitposting, I fear Tohno-Chan will remain in its current state indefinitely

I tried ask in /ot/ but I didn't ger clear answer and I didn't want to cause anymore off-topic discussion, so I try to get answer from here.

Why is /tc/ so strict about political discussion?

people can like or not like whatever they want for whatever reason they want, and you have no right to make them like or not like something.
I don't give one flying fuck if you don't accept 'why' I like or don't like something, I'm not going to start liking or disliking something just because you tell me too.

Besides, you're just going to ignore any reasons people present that you don't like. No one ever says something is shit becuase it's shit, you simply don't like their reasons so you wright off their reasons and opinion as shit, and by that logic I could say anything you like is shit and any reason you have for liking it makes your opinion shit.
If I said a pair of pants was ugly becuase they're green, but someone else who liked green would think my opinion was shit, they can think so all they like but that doesn't make it fact.
Or what if a anime has a cast of primarily tsundere characters and two people have opposing opinions. one likes the anime becuase he likes tsundere, the other doesn't like the anime becuase he doesn't like tsundere. who here would have the shit opinion?

And again nobody is saying you aren't allowed to have opinion in something. You opinion is just as worthless (let's use nicer word) as arguments behind it. Stop trying to be martyr. Nobody here minds if you CRITICIZE anime.

>Besides, you're just going to ignore any reasons people present that you don't like.
How do you know that?

>No one ever says something is shit becuase it's shit, you simply don't like their reasons so you wright off their reasons and opinion as shit, and by that logic I could say anything you like is shit and any reason you have for liking it makes your opinion shit.
How many times I need to repeat; Opinion is worthless, if there isn't arguments behind it. No matter if I agree or disagree with it.

>If I said a pair of pants was ugly becuase they're green, but someone else who liked green would think my opinion was shit, they can think so all they like but that doesn't make it fact.
Matter of taste != opinion. You can't objectively view color of pants, but you can view anime objectively.

>Or what if a anime has a cast of primarily tsundere characters and two people have opposing opinions. one likes the anime becuase he likes tsundere, the other doesn't like the anime becuase he doesn't like tsundere. who here would have the shit opinion?

As Tohno-chan grows the quality of discussion is steadily declining and yet despite the increase in users there has not been an equal increase in post rate. How do we stop this decline of standards?

Also, just a heads up: please no insulting each other in this thread, lets have an objective discussion here.

>Do you really need a rigorous definition of 'declining discussion quality'?

I need spcific examples. What I'd like to see would look like this: 1. what it looked like back in the day 2. what it looks like now 3. why it's a bad thing 4. a possible solution. Just complaining 'it's shit' is actually making the situation worse.

>Its possible you simply haven't noticed any decline, because you haven't been observing it on a long enough timescale. You're more likely to have first started visiting this site during the more recent snowballing periods

That's a stupid ad-hominem. And I'll have to disappoint you, I have been around since ib4f (although I started browsing /tc/ only two or so months before the ib4f /tc/ went down). And if you think it used to be better on ib4f then sorry, you're just being delusional. A healthy dose of /jp/'s cynical elitism actually improved the site as a whole in my opinion. The place might be less friendly but that discourages circle jerking which was a big issue on ib4f (at least in my opinion).

And like I said, I actually agree but if all you have to say is 'it's bad, what now' then I'd rather not see such a thread in the first place. And you can't just play your 'yeah, sure, it's much better to just stay passive and let matters get even worse, right? At least I tried to help' because if you really want to do something about it you simply have to propose some kind of a solution when you create a meta thread like this. If it'll be a stupid one you should prepare to get flamed (and it'd be best to prepare for that even if you think it's a good one), though.

And of course I agree with the graph you posted but that's inevitable in my opinion. I could say 'I wasted away my entire life browsing the 'net' with a clear conscience and I can only name one community which didn't get hit by this. I have some theories behind why it keeps happening (I told you about imageboards) but explainin

You think tohno-chan is better for the same reason that I think its worse, so I think digging out examples wouldn't support my case any further.

I just want to deny that I made an ad-hominem attack, at least intentionally. Coming here later doesn't mean you're a crappier person, its just that it likely would've skewed your perspective.

Short of some kind of major structural change (like I dunno, making the post reporting system more efficient or some horrible incarnation of upvotes) I think the best bet would be to try and change the board culture starting from the top. Users seem to take the words of the admins, mods and the rules as gospel so this shouldnt be so hard to do. First off, people should just stop being so angry. People should be friendly and not insult each other. /mai/ is a pretty good example, people are usually very friendly and supportive of one another and I'd like to see more of that elsewhere on tohno-chan. Somehow this needs to be balanced with our 'Gestapo' where we heckle the crap out of anything we perceive as a threat to our board. Secondly, I think the 'banned+discouraged stuff' list needs to be simple and all-encompassing rather than being implemented on a patchwork basis. There should also be a general guideline to the expected standard of post quality, nothing too specific (else this place would get bland and really stagnant), just enough to give the subtle push to write nicer.

I just said that - in my opinion - ib4f wasn't much better than /tc/ is nowadays. Just for the record, I enjoyed /tc/ the most around April~May 2011. The boards were active, lots of discussions which were of interest to me took place and the posts seemed to be well thought-out most of the time. Now I'm not saying it was perfect since increased activity inevitably leads to incresing drama but that trade-off seemed fair enough to me back then.

Not everything people have to say can take up a half dozen paragraphs. Sometimes there just isn't that much to say.

I know I for one can safely say in my past experiences I have been given a hard time(well maybe not hard time, more like poked fun at a bit? you know how those guys are) by people from around here and the irc channel more than just a few times for my little bad habit of excessively dragging out the things that might wright on any given topic or subject that don't require as many words as I normally would shove in it just to get across a simple idea, I believe this could possibly be called rambling in any event. too long didn't read and what not: I use to many words for simple ideas.
