Why does /akb/ exist? Wondering because it goes against most of the things this site/community stands for.

50-50. If they'll stop blatantly breaking rules I don't care either way. I don't believe in this whole 'chosen people only' ideology.

>The most obvious case of someone that came here and actually bothered to post in a discussion like that would be someone that actually DOES enjoy the topic, but might not meet TC's standards of 'posting quality', per se.

I really wanted to hear it from your mouth. This is pretty great.
So basically you do agree it's just somebody who is a random /tc/er who just happens to have a different opinion on topic at hand, right? If you do then surely you must understand what I'm talking about by now. Expressing some opinions (which are in no way rulebreaking or even gray zone) automatically gets you marked as dangerous element because it's unfathomable that somebody who eats a choco cornet stating with the wider side could possbily be from /tc/.

That's extremely discouraging. Did TC get female moderators again or something?

>I don't believe in this whole 'chosen people only' ideology.
I don't believe that TC regulars are a "chosen people", per se, but I don't really think those that do want to discuss 3D have any place here.

>So basically you do agree it's just somebody who is a random /tc/er who just happens to have a different opinion on topic at hand, right?
Yes. In that thread as well as others, as I said, the term is flung around as an insult to imply that the other party is 'not fit to be here', along lines with the 'secret club' elitism I mentioned earlier. I think labeling them a dangerous element is a bit much. Personally, I always took those outsider attacks as a completely derogatory and ridiculing insult rather than one labeling a threat.

>/tc/ is almost dead and our favorite pasttime is attacking new users. That's just great.
I can't speak for everyone, but so as long as they don't break the rules I have no issues with newcomers.

I agree. I told Tohno he should go more strictly by the rules but he said that's Nazi behaviour.

Enforcing the rules is not nazi behaviour, nazi behaviour is when someone deletes threads about topics they don't like. Like when someone on /an/ posts about an anime they dislike or someone on /mai/ has a waifu they dislike and they delete the post. That mod abuse is nazi behaviour, but actually moderating and deleting things that violate the rules is not nazi behaviour.

The point is the 'sikkrit club' elitist mentality is what causes people to stone people who don't share their one correct sikkrit club worldview. I think 'you don't belong here' is mean literally. You can take it at face value. 'Since you prefer red over blue we don't want you here'. I'm sure some people legitimately believe letting people who don't share their views hang around here will cause some massive userbase shift.

>I told Tohno he should go more strictly by the rules but he said that's Nazi behaviour.

Can you even blame him after every mod quit because they just couldn't take it anymore? I don't follow /tc/'s staff closely enough to name all of them but Natsume definitely cracked under pressure and I think the same holds true for hamish.

>Enforcing the rules is not nazi behaviour, nazi behaviour is when someone deletes threads about topics they don't like.

That's what the funposters always said on /fb/, though. That the mods delete shit they don't like.

I don't see how this argument is supposed to work, really. If people started to talk about 3DPD should we just let them do as they please because apparently that's what they want?

I don't think this belongs here period, if you want to discuss 4chan you should take it elsewhere.
>> No. 5458 [Edit]
>>5457
That's a fair point, but one of those threads on /ot/ is about 4chan's "culture" and growing out of it, it just unfortunately turned into discussion about the site itself. The other is much more directly related to 4chan and it's admin leaving and should probably be locked I think.

What's the point of having threads made two-three years ago still up today? And why have so many pages for a board with a very small population?

I think stuff like this is why not many people post here. When you're browsing threads and seeing stuff made a year ago, its very discouraging and no doubt kills motivation to post.

What you don't seem to understand is that new topics magically (not really but I have no idea what this incomprehensible psychological phenomenon is called) spark discussion. We rarely get to observe it on /tc/ because old threads don't get pruned but the site got really active overnight when we moved from ib4f to current /tc/.

In my experience new threads mostly just predictably spark meta discussion about how the thread sucks and why aren't mods deleting it faster?
>> No. 5798 [Edit]

No, this only happens if someone makes a duplicate thread. Or if the thread is utter cancer, on far rarer occasions.
>> No. 5799 [Edit]
From a purely technical standpoint, we could really benefit from boards with less pages.
Rebuilding the boards takes too much fucking time as it is now.

Why the fuck would you do this?
I understand wanted/needing more visitors, but why buy a public ad, and on /a/ of all places? This is just throwing the door open to all sorts of undesirables. I never actually used this website, but I heard of it, and isn't the place closer to /jp/ than /a/?
Whoever bought the ad doesn't seem to understand just how much shit goes through /a/ every day before the mods delete it.

You know, there's not really much we can do if someone decides to take it upon themselfs to place an ad somewhere or link to us. We've had that in the past with encyclopedia dramatica and some over chan. Pretty sure they didn't mean any harm by it and just wanted to give the site a little boost. seems they've already taken it down anyways. Nothing to get too worked up over I think.

Even if rabid niggertiters overrun and devour TC we will always have the archive.

Meh, mod team is going the 'less quality more activity' route anyway so who cares. Ban the crap posters and keep the good ones.

Hello Tohnochan
I'm a poster from the /r9k/ board of an imageboard, 4chon, that used to be pretty big but has since dwindled in size. The imageboard itself closed down about a year or so ago, and since then our user base has been camping out at 8ch. Unfortunately this site has its own share of problems, so our community has been discussing trying to find a new home.
There's only about 5 or 6 regular posters, and most of us have been regulars on imageboards for years. Mostly we're looking for a place to keep in touch until we die off or quite the Internet for good. Do you have any unused boards we could take over? We won't bother your community or anything, we just need a place to stay.
Our current spot is https://www.8ch.net/4chonr9k/index.html if you want to come over and say hi.

At least users of akb have something in common with the rest of tc and will sometimes contribute to the other boards. Users from r9k probably hate you for being an otaku and will contaminate the site while consuming resources and contributing nothing.

Recently I spoke with someone about /mai/ and they mentioned the board has become something of a joke in recent days, and of course this was a bit concerning. The issue mainly involves the rise in the more bizarre characters. Besides being unsightly, some leave the validity of their partner's claims to be questionable.
The idea has been bought up about limiting the board to eastern characters only and I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter.

You aren't. Check the archive. The problem is people started to overdo it with blog style posting on /so/. It was a classic case of slippery slope - started out as 'well, juuust a little is fine', ended up in /so/'s current state where most people just vent about their lives. In a way I'm happy for them because having a place to vent in is always good but at the same time I can't say it makes a good read.

I really dislike the exclusion of waifus that are considered furry. Just cause it doesn't come from eastern media doesn't mean it cant be some ones waifu. Saying such would be ridiculous. I understand that some might question the seriousness of some, but can't exceptions be made for those who are serious? Ive only ever been able to find two places for waifuism, and the other place isn't really active.
>> No. 5774 [Edit]
>>5773
It's not that it can't be someone's waifu, it's just that it can't be posted on our waifu board. Not without being deleted, that is. It really doesn't matter how pure, how honest your love may be.

The Himouto thread has been deleted because of all the complaints and reports we've been getting with regards to low quality posting in it. Unfortunately this meant some on-topic posts were deleted but I feel the thread worded in such a way that it could not become anything besides a thread where people complained about 'why isn't she fat' or 'this is whats wrong with 3D women in society today'.

Just a friendly reminder that if you don't like a post or thread, please report it. Believe it or not us mods check the reports regularly. Shitposting to try and get mods to delete a thread will not be tolerated and we will punish not only the person you were responding to but you as well.
