Are Dumbing of Age threads on regular /co/ just straight up banned now? I haven't seen any for days, and they used to be pretty regular. I know some people were getting banned for posting screencaps/greentexting quotes from DoA's comment section, which seemed rather excessive, so I guess an outright ban isn't too farfetched.
>someone made a hate thread for a thing >I replied, talking about the plot and the characters >got called a faggot for "liking thing enough to remember characters' names" Not complaining, just...... it literally never happened to me or anyone in the 8 years I remember. Unless I missed something.
>you liked it so much you even remembered everyone's names? >what a faggot! WEIRD, MAN. WEIRD.
>just literally saying GG gets you banned from /co/ for FREE Jesus christ they are affraid of a word even when it's literally the context of the thread and person you are talking about this is fucking insane.
>>406109 Probably shouldn't have been talking about gamergate on a comics and cartoons board. Ignoring things you don't like instead of responding to them means less of the thread is taken up by dumb off-topic garbage.

>>406164 I personally have no idea what he's talking about, but if it starts a political shitfight, then it'll have to go to the containment thread. GG gets moved pre-emptively because it is a guaranteed thread destroyed.
>>406168 >I personally have no idea what he's talking about, but if it starts a political shitfight, then it'll have to go to the containment thread. There's no such thing as a containment thread. Monstrous human being like Slowpoke or his gg buddies post the same shit across all threads and all boards, they're just slightly more veiled.
>>406208 Using a simple formula is not how to troll properly, and I say this as an Australian. If you troll casually or occasionally, it will do fine for you; guaranteed to get a few solid replies and very effective near the top of a thread. But if you want real (You)s and deep reactions, you will have to be a bit more agile.
Try a good old "[thing's main feature] is the absolute worst excuse for a [feature's role]. Only an autistic degenerate could possibly see anything [common description of feature] about it." Naturally, try and adjust to the subject if more information is known, to make it hit deeper.
eg. Mister Twister's monthly ""revelations"" are the absolute worst excuse for a plus4chan post. Only he could possibly see anything enlightening about them.
Naturally, it works better among fandoms. Bonus points if its a waifu.
>>406309 I'm just glad that I don't have to filter 15+ threads on /tg/. Not that I really main /tg/ any more, but I might go back there now that /qst/ exists. I'm also happy that sup /tg/ is on the ball and is archiving /qst/ already. As long as the transition to /qst/ doesn't prematurely kill JACKQUEST I'll be happy.
>that RWBY/RT general got banned from /co/, despite, apparently, new content coming from RvB and RWBY >threads for new show on Nick, The Loud House, are already getting heavily moderated, despite the show not having even been aired yet, but airing in a day >both are now forced to go to /trash/
>>406355 a decent familly show with girls but since it's not Disney or CN some false flagger post porn so people can say it's "the new mlp" (don't expect subtlety from /co/mblr, and someone bf is clearly in the mod teams to clean it up for xe.

>>406355 It's a new animated Nick show about a boy and 5 older sisters and 5 younger sisters. Started garnering attention after some shorts and episodes were posted online and were well received, and with it having 10 different girls of varying ages, it was pretty much guaranteed to have some people talking about it. >>406356 Strangely enough, as cuckoo as this is, it does always seem to be Nick shows that get the short end of the stick before most other shows. Might be coincidence, or might just be because Nick shows really do have the most 'eccentric' fans, but there's seemingly something there.
>>406453 Yeah, but when 90% of the posts in a thread are about shipping/waifu shit then there's not much in the thread that interests me. Sorting through the trash just isn't worth it. Which applies to 4chan in general really, but it's even worse than usual in threads about certain shows/games/whatever.
>>406547 >usually it links you the post you were banned for which is my problem. I got banned, but I didn't break a rule, and it's not about any of my posts. So the only official reason is that he was triggered like a bitch. Which doesn't even make sense considering I have been careful about my posting these days, since I was banned not that long ago.
>>406920 >>406941 More specifically, it's a scene from JJBA part 5 where a character, Bruno, threatens the main character, Gio, by calling him a liar. Thus licking him on the cheek to make the situation more uncomfortable. It's a fucking weird moment but that's jojo in general....
I'm pretty sure the image is based on the much more well-known scene of Cartman licking Scott Tenorman's tears rather than some obscure manga-only scene in Jojo's that hardly anyone outside of /a/ knows.
>>406979 There is no place that archives plus4chan threads and posts. The last two versions of plus4chan and it's posts and threads were locked and archived and you could access them with the old plus4chan links but they no longer work after plus4chan went down in February and whoever is running plus4chan won't fix anything and won't bring the archives back.
>>407132 >What imageboard is that from? 7chan /fur/
>he doesn't have adblock I do, but I disable it on 4chan (although I may need to add it for those ones) I also disabled on YouTube, but I think I blacklisted the server in Hosts.txt and cbf undoing it, even when trying to watch ads to support an good artist.
>>407139 >Just disable AdBlock every time you want to support a particular creator. Re-enable when you're done watching. Pretty much what I have going, but before I had AdBlock I used the system hosts file, essentially hard-blocking my access to all listed links. I added a massive list (someonewhocares.org/hosts/) that has a ton of shock sites, sites that are known to spy, ads, etc. (mostly malicious, intrusive or ad sites) that happened to include Google ad services. So I've disabled those lines so that I can use adblock to temporarily allow Google ads.
>>407199 Let me rephrase what I said so you may better understand.
Your repeated posting of your lack of fore-knowledge and bewilderment of the culture of the website 4chan, specifically the videogame board /v/ as of late, shows that you are are not versed in the ways of the posters there. With such evidence I am led to believe that you have not observed /v/ long enough to have witnessed the common mannerisms there.
>stumbled upon a "Kadokawa Conference thread" on /v/ >expected lots of Japanese video games >got /v/ raiding a bunch of nico live streams I was wondering if something... magical was going to happen after the first day of E3. Magical in a special kind of way. And I guess I was right.
>>407308 As much a /v/ is, well, /v/, I still prefer the prevailing pessimism that leads to an environment where you have to fight for ever mentioning anything is a good game. Or questioning if the hype is worth it. Well, most of the time once the initial release date is farther in the past or the game becomes popular... But it's /v/, so yeah.
>>407477 >>407477 >>407478 >>407479 >>407480 1) MissedTwist, you are the epitome of "lurk moar" 2) I don't keep up with MRA/Feminist bullshit but I hear it daily, so I can't say whether it really matters or not. "cuck" is the new "beta", but with the tone of saying "faggot". This isn't new any more; people were calling moot a cuck regularly while he still worked there. 3) Who the fuck says "MurrA"?
Why the fuck are there 2 +/pol/ threads. One is more than enough. I don't care if you are salty about a dump troll opening post, it's a fucking opening post. They have little effect on the thread they contain. AND IT'S A FUCKING +/pol/ THREAD, nothing but trolling and badmouthing go down in those threads. A non-troll OP is gonna change nothing and all you did was make TWO threads for people to shitpost in. For fucks sake.
>someone makes a post about how Sym-Bionic Titan was a waste of time and resources >I reply, giving the poster a (You) >my post is so terrible it deserved to get deleted Sure, feeding the trolls is wrong, but many many things are wrong, and posters do those wrong things all the time, and don't get warned.
>>408451 For fuck's sake........ thought if that flied over there, it might not be OBSCENE....... if any mod has a problem with that brilliant South Park reference, please, feel free to delete the post.
>>408494 Don't forget: >my browser >>> your browser >my favorite programming language >>> your favorite programning language 25% of /g/ is "my [variable] >>> your [variable]" 25% of 4chan is "my [variable] >>> your [variable]"
>>408649 The fact that you think that thread is in any way noteworthy and needs to be shared with peers says more unflattering things about you and your mental state than I could ever hope to come up with myself.
>>409020 I dispute. With Dolan, there's nothing to talk about but smut. With Prequel (and probably Poppy), there's actual discussion: they are legitimate webcomics with a legitimate stories and characters. And when it goes off topic (hiatus syndrome like a motherfucker), it's not usually about smut.
If people want to post Prequel, Gumball, Loud House or Zootopia porn on /co/, redirect them to their respective /trash/ threads.
>getting mad at videogames >want to vent my anger on /v/ cause that's the only thing that place is good for >4chan is down again >nowhere to direct this anger toward Fuck, I just wanna shitpost about shitty games being shitty.
> Also > You guys > Are not understanding > At all why 4chan is bleeding money > It's not /pol/, /b/ or /r9k/ > The boards are shit > But they're low bandwith compared to /wsg/ > Or /hr/ or /s/ or /gif/ > Or the wallpaper boards > /hr/ needs to go > Because /hr/ is a board that people used when they were on FUCKING DIALUP > And has no reason to be in the time where you can grab a 3MB file with any kind of a connection > Even your phone > Within 10 secs max > So seriously as much as I dislike /pol/, that's not the problem > The problem are porn boards > Sorry > If Porn, Wallpaper and Gif boards make up for 50% of bandwith
>>410022 >Is /koba/ related to posting? Not really; it's inflated, though, because every action takes at least two calls to complete, and that includes any action taken through board tools (as opposed to directly using the backend). Half of that is probably me trying to research an IP for previous actions.
>>410203 Some people make money off of Youtube views. Many people don't want to give money to people who espouse heinous politics. Different people have different ideas of what's heinous.
It's not some grand mystery or anything. It's the same reason people who are especially concerned about gay rights might be hesitant about eating at Chick-fil-a or people who dislike the things the Koch Brothers do might try (in vain, given how many pies they have their fingers in) to avoid products that are made by one of their companies.
>>410209 Personally, I don't watch YouTube diatribes about a person's politics even when they agree with me. The chance that someone lecturing me on YouTube about their political stance is a complete crank who I don't want to listen to is somewhere around 100%.
>>410228 Everything is inherently political because everyone has personal politics. If they put out whatever flavor of garbage and I don't want to give them money, then I'm going to avoid giving them any kind of patronage, even for theoretically 'unrelated" material.
I don't care what Milo, for example, thinks about Dr. Strange or whatever, if he has a monetized channel he's reviewing it on, I'm not watching his review because I don't want to support fucking Milo.
>>410229 >Everything is inherently political because everyone has personal politics. that's pretty wrong though. That sort of reductive logic doesn't work when you consider that humans have intelligence and social rules.
>>410203 >>410207 Just a heads up (despite no-one asking for it), one view is close to worthless monetarily. An average CPM (cost per thousand views) is ~$2-3, so one view is less than half a cent. It's a meaningless argument.

amazing how, in the current shitstorm that is /v/, I can get banned for "instigating flamewar" when half the threads on the board are currently "my brand win your brand lost". I guess some mods are still triggered by the word "sonygger".
>>410742 As always, it depends on your threads, but I'm an ul/trash/itposter, and I reckon you're wrong.
/trash/ was actually pretty good when it was new, but the autistic sexual-orientation shitposting (eg. futafags, non-futafags, etc.) and that one guy in every cartoon general who spams his fetish often make the place low quality. What's so bad about /co/?
>google makes cute halloween cat >shota and gay posters start derailing, posting irrelevant gay porn and bitching about how it should have been a male cat why
>>410758 Oh of course, that's not the problem. I didn't explain it well.
The character was female (not just shown by appearance, it was confirmed through pronouns as well), and a few people started complaining about how it was totally a guy cat, and when proved wrong, spammed the thread with random, off-topic gay porn. That's not even R63, that's just being autistic.
On a side note about R34, it's annoying to me when an artist obviously doesn't care and makes no effort to capture the character beyond basic appearance. A good character has character.
>>410799 >political hyperbole/flaming >only tangential relevance to conversation >furry thumbnail never helps in my experience 200% asking for trouble, but I personally wouldn't ban. Very lucky to only get one day, usually would have gotten the usual three. Or permaban since you reek of underage.
>>411890 >>411891 I disagree. 1) popularity events often end quickly, prompting a significant decline in growth, or even a negative growth. This will definitely happen now that the election is over. Any faggots who just come for the trending drama will leave. 2) growth =/= bad times. Only shitposting boards like /b/, /v/ and /pol/ are affected. 3) those graphs do not represent unique traffic. It could be mostly made up of the same people posting in more threads. Who knows? 4) why even hate phone posters? Is it because they occasionally post big sideways pictures?
>>412107 Apparently 4chanx and CSS workarounds can be used for (You)s (as the tracking function still exists). There are still dotted lines under replies to you, causing "Give me dots" posts to appear.
>new Samurai Jack threads >latest episode has little girls raised to be assassins, and Jack saving a family (with a little girl) from getting attacked by robots >all those girls are referred to by anons as "lolis" Is this 4 real? Are the people being ironic?
>>414194 I've seen people seemingly who are seemingly unable get the implications of tagging their art "loli" every time it has a little girl in it, so that's not surprising. Particularly annoying is that since it's on Deviantart/Newgrounds/Pixiv/wherever, I can't ask them about it anonymously, which isn't ideal when I can't tell how defensive they'd be toward someone questioning their inelegant use of terminology.
>>414208 I personally love archives (especially good for finding SAUCE) but Twister brings up a good point, and one moot has talked about himself. Part of the original attraction of 4chan was its ephemerality. whatever you said was gone the next day, so it didn't matter. Another thing about that was it made the site more addictive and energetic; you couldn't miss the next thread, or else it was gone forever.
Now, 4chan is increasingly comparable to sites like tumblr and reddit. It has lost a bit of what made it unique.
>>414273 a game webcomic is still vidya related. Way more than those eceleb reblogs, or sale charts wanking threads. As long as it's not porn or whatever there's no reason to filter by an arbitrary "quality" level.
>>414347 [not him] It's not what is in the picture, it's what the picture encourages. You know as well as any of us that pictures of animals with tits are autism bait, and some idiot/s will start posting cheesecake and get the thread hammered.
Essentially a mod/janitor didn't want to deal with that shit and felt it was ok to attempt to prevent the potential storm that follows.
