I noticed we're getting spammed by CP a lot lately. I suggest we get more mods so that there is a mod avaliable around the clock.

It's in the plans actually. Now that I know it works and doesn't unwork the whole site I'll try to design a system that fits better into the kusaba codebase and can be easily extended.

What's the significance of this? I've never been able to figure it out. Is it related to Air? The kanji (進呈) stands for "presentation of something (like a gift)", and I know in Japan gift money is sometimes given in those types of envelopes.

Good news: it was easy to track down the code triggering the error message.
Bad news: I don't know exactly why it's failing and I'm not sure when I'll be able to take a look.

Yup, it triggers when an ajax request fails.

this isn't meant to be mean or anything, i just want to meta discuss about why /an/ has such shit taste in anime. i want to know why. i just looked at /an/ and there was only one good anime from this season on the front page and all of the old anime posts were about bad shitty anime too. OK, this is just my opinion, but i know i'm not some sort of unique snowflake of an anime viewer and so i pretty much assume that everyone mostly agrees with me about /an/.
even thought it does have an admirable level of enthusiasm for anime, it's taste just sucks.

Why don't you make threads for anime you like, then?

>i know i'm not some sort of unique snowflake of an anime viewer and so i pretty much assume that everyone mostly agrees with me about /an/

Uh, no? Are you too stupid to figure out that if /an/ discusses some anime and most of the posters seem to praise it then that's precisely what /an/ likes? How much of mental gymnastics does anybody have to perform to reach any conclusion but this one?

What's the alternative? Everybody purposedly discussing 'bad anime' (i.e. shows you don't like) in some kind of elaborate ruse? I can't even really imagine it so please feel free to enlighten me.
>> No. 5483 [Edit]
You're welcome to post more on the board yourself about whatever anime you want to talk about you know?

Jesus fucking Christ I'm sick of shit like this. Why are so many people so stupid and incapable of realizing this? If there's no thread for an anime you like; make one. If the thread for the anime you like isn't getting any posts; make a post in the thread and bump it to draw some attention to it. How fucking hard is that to do? With the board being as slow as it is you can make a post and have it being at the top of page 0 for hours, yet that's still not enough for you? How god damn lazy and entitled can you get?

Here's some objectivity for you OP: The anime you like sucks and you're the one with shitty taste. This is because if you can't be fucked to even post a single sentience or comment about any of the anime you yourself claim to enjoy then that in itself proves that it's not worth talking about in the first place. You've already demonstrated that you retain the ability to create threads and type sentences to express your thoughts and opinions by making this thread, yet you're unwilling to put in the same 'effort' to any of the garbage anime you like.
You're more than welcome to prove me wrong and take the two minutes to post about the anime you like and try to generate some discussion for it, but we both know you're not even going to try and would rather just bitch and complain that people aren't doing it for you.

If you don't like a certain post please report it. Believe it or not we mods do check the reports regularly, and the reports tell us what the userbase wants.

Time for some feedback.

Recently I noticed a change in the general vibe of /tc/. Overall I feel the style of posting started to drift away from the 'wall of text' route at a much faster pace than in the last couple of years (the change itself is hardly new I'd argue, it's just that it got a whole lot worse lately). Generally I think 'post stuff other people might like to see' is a good guideline to follow and one that most people seem to either forget about or ignore period nowadays. I think we have an influx of low effort posts that don't really contribute to the site in any way or form. Not every post can be a wall of text and even if it could I feel it wouldn't actually benefit the site - you've got to find the right balance. Some threads on /an/ will inevitably consist of nothing but 'cute things are cute' posts but that in it's own right is not wrong. What bothers me is the way it's conveyed.

While trying to figure out how to put this in words the term 'trigger happy' came to my mind. I don't really want to bring normie websites into this because I feel it'd discredit people sololy because I'd associate them with the wrong crowd but it reminds me of twitter. The general attitude seems to be shifting from 'post stuff other people might like to see' to 'post whatever you want to post [even if others either won't give a damn or will actually dislike the content]'. It's fast food style posting.

What imageboards become is generally decided by their end users and the content they post. If /tc/'s userbase is okay with what's happening lately then so be it I guess. I'm not really proposing adding any new rules or being stricter about moderation. If anything I'd like everybody to think this through for themselves and maybe practice some moderation. Perhaps most importantly of all though I wanted to voice my discontent to let some people who might feel the same way know that they aren't alone.

please link us to some of your best posts so we can see how you want us to post. plus as a good poster myself, i'd just like to read some nice high quality posts
>> No. 5475 [Edit]
As a former wot poster, I'll say that I stopped because I didn't get much feedback. And when I did get a reply it was usually just a few words. Having said that I never felt like I was maintaining any sort of "quality of post". Posting long-winded posts usually ended up with me feeling shitty for sharing so much of my personal self and generally wasting space. I don't browse tc much anymore (for unrelated reasons) so it doesn't really matter.
>> No. 5476 [Edit]

>I stopped because I didn't get much feedback.

I think it's the key factor that makes WoT posters give up at (and most likely leave) at some point. If the content you post affects the amount of people that will be willing to engage in some sort of discussion/conversation with you that it probably affects it negatively. You're likely to get better results by doing the opposite. WoT posters probably notice that and ask themselves 'why bother?'.

>Having said that I never felt like I was maintaining any sort of "quality of post".

Well yeah, you don't really think about it when you're typing out responses. It's more of a hindsight thing and something you notice by following discussions you didn't actively participate in.

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. -Lao Tzu

As it is, the site seems to be a little dry on new members. Although there is no change in the running of Tohno-chan regardless of the number of users who use it, imageboards are a media which depend upon a relatively active userbase to keep things fresh. Without active posting, the imageboards have tended to devolve into mere hosted archive, where the uncertainty of new content discourages lurkers from carrying the torch.

With this in mind, we (aka me, Not-Tohno) are thinking of doing something absolutely despicable: Publicizing.

In particular, we are considering of purchasing an advert on /jp/, if it is allowed, for the sake of seeing its effect on the traffic, posting-quality, and other features of Tohno-chan. We are not considering posting in /jp/ threads, as the advertisement system on 4chan was opened up for cases like these, and spamming as advertisement is not an option.

This will be entirely from our pocket, and not be related at all to the funds for Tohno-chan proper.

What is your opinion of Tohno-chan experimenting with self-advertisement?

>I've been on tchan since '09, and I would like it if we finally got some traffic, so I could stop going to other imageboards altogether.

I don't think this is a complete pipe dream but it would require some hard work and effort from multiple people. It won't happen overnight thanks to some miracle. I'll get back to this in a bit.

>Honestly, I think we should just mass advertise everywhere and then deal with the rule-breaking users.

That's not the best way to do things in my opinion but it can be used as last resort I guess.


>Maybe we should do /a/?

I think it won't yield much of a result. People who browse /a/ are used to completely different type of discussion. On a moloch such as 4chan people just want to get their quick posting fix. They make a thread, get 10 responses within 3 minutes, spend half an hour in their thread and they're done.

I like the way it tc was advertised when it was still a new site: a name drop here and there and tohno posting on the ghost board with the link in the email field. Its not blatant enough to draw trolls and criticism
>> No. 5423 [Edit]
That's probably the best way to go about it.

The best way is probably inviting people you actually know (and trust to have some posting standards). It's kinda hard to do on a site for hikki NEETs but surely some of us do have some net buddies who could contribute to the site. And those buddies have buddies who...

Why do you have all the otaku media separated?

Just combine them into one board. It's not like they each get enough posts or traffic to warrant their own boards.

I don't really agree with drawing more people in. In my opinion the post rate and board culture are perfectly fine and drawing more people in would risk diluting that. Plus, with onahole threads you risk bringing the /jp/ crowd here which would be awful.

why not make a onahole thread on /ns/?

In that case it's what >>5165 said: I'm perfectly fine with our current userbase talking about [topic] but I'd rather not make a new board just to draw in completely different people just so they can discuss [topic] here.
>> No. 5367 [Edit]
I think combining anime, manga and VN might be a good idea. It would be nice if it became one of our main boards along with /ot/,/so/ and /mai/.
