>>416153 It says nothing at all: either loads forever and gives me a "bad redirect" error, or just redirects to the board's homepage. And Safari on the same laptop has none of those issues. Had this problem for half a year now. Can make regular replies on either browser.
>>416982 How sad. It saddens me that the gumball fandom in 4chan will rather move to reddit or let themselves die than coming here or any other chan. It' s so strange, 4chan is bigger than ever but all other chans seem to be withering away.
>>416983 Maybe they are not coming here because they don't know this place exists? Have anyone told them that they can come here?
>It' s so strange, 4chan is bigger than ever but all other chans seem to be withering away. It used to be that other chans complimented 4chan with boards that it didn't have. Today, 4chan covers nearly every topic, so there's no need for other chans. And 8chan made it worse by allowing everyone to make their own board, so they have a shitload of boards with hardly any posters on each.
It also doesn't help that 4chan considers every mention of another community as spam. Name drop any site and it gets flagged. Mention an alias for a site (like, say, fullchan), it gets flagged. At that point, it is more important to keep people inside.
>>416985 >Maybe they are not coming here because they don't know this place exists? Have anyone told them that they can come here? I just posted and immediately got the respose "Plus4 is dead as fuck". Apart from loli/shota, they're right. Mostly, I think people don't know, and the rest of the time they know and remember how dead we are.
>>416985 Yes, 4chan has a lot of boards but that doesn't mean that the site is good, and these threads getting deleted is a proof of that. what other sites do offer is a different feeling, community and moderation. Maybe because I've been here for so long shuffling different chans seems so normal to me. >>416986 It's dead because they're not coming here, if their threads moved over here plus4 surely will get a boost in users.
>>417450 The current board system doesn't actually purge old threads due to a bug, so everything that was posted on this board. Including some threads which, for some reason, are not in the db but their static htmls still exist. Images included. In fact I think it has a lot of deleted images there too, based on the file count.
Moose said that he may have an archive of the old site. I don't know anything further than that.
Latest stupidity from /co/: drawthreads don't allow anchor posts (where artists can link deliveries, so it is possible to keep track of them easier). No explanation give, just janitors deleting every related discussion.
>>419100 They don't have a "thing" against me - half the decent topic I've seen gets deleted nowadays.
There's also a janitor in the win-o threads on /co/ who posts his own referral links to everything (which is against the rules), but since he is a janitor, he can clear any reports his own posts get, as well as delete any posts which point this out. 4chan is run entirely by the janitors now.
>>420668 >>420669 yeah, I'm not seeing any extra ads either. However 4chan has been essentially impossible to use without adblock ever since Hiro took over - the ads are more disgusting than what people are posting.
>>420764 What was it before? "Roll for X images" seemed to be pretty common when I last visited, and racism was so accepted on all boards that I find it odd to be mentioned there. But they may have been there since a very long time, given how every other non-general thread I check end up getting pruned while I read them. pic related.
>>420771 Not really. /v/ is one of the biggest boards on 4chan; this makes it extremely fast and very hard to moderate. Cutting it up is therefore necessary for keeping the site more advertiser-friendly. It's also why /b/ had so many boards made specifically to cut off content from it.
>>420774 The slow boards are OVER moderated. The larger boards can get away with shit that would get moderated instantly on the slower boards, simply due to their size.
At any rate, an RPG board isn't what /v/ would have needed, it would've been either a board for streamers / youtube celebrity bullshit (someone brought up /incel/ for INternet CELebrity, which I think is ingenious), or a /v2k/ board for 6th and 7th console generation stuff, to parallel /vr/.
>>420849 Yeah. /vr/ and /toy/ has constant threads which are ALWAYS there whenever I visit as well. That's one of the reasons why I don't visit daily anymore, just once a week, maybe a month now. It also doesn't help that a TON of posts get deleted, and it usually takes 5-15 minutes to get banned over the most minute shit. The kind of posts that dominated the boards ten years ago will get deleted or get you banned.
As far as I'm concerned, /s4s/ is the last good board there.
>add a bunch of video game boards that no one asks for >Have a mod-started thread on /vr/ that was made under the pretense of discussing what we should allow >ignore idea about /v2k/ and ignore every user in the thread saying that they don't want it >Allow 6th gen games on /vr/ despite no one wanting the idea >/vr/ is now overrun with threads about newer games >All of this would have been fine if they just made another board, one we had been asking for
I just wanted a place to discuss old video games in peace. Instead, the leadership at the old site decided to ruin a board.
>>420962 Last time I checked the problem was that 1 they got spammed with the same shit over and over for years 2 janitors deleted arbitrary requests they didn't like 3 janitors deleted damn near any discussions they didn't like (this is a problem globally on the entire site) 4 4chan rules don't allow for a lot of western art there to begin with
I'm assuming you mean #1 by cancer, but what do you mean by toxicity? Isn't the thread over-moderated so there's absolutely no chance of getting any "toxic" comments in?
>>420964 That's just random noise that comes with the territory of posting on an anonymous imageboard, or is it that bad that it clogs up the thread? And don't janitors delete those along with everything else that's even slightly off topic?
>>420966 How is that even a problem? Because the character has been requested a lot? Boy, those guys weren't around in the 00s when a new episode of Avatar meant the entire board was 95% Avatar threads for an entire day.
>>420965 The drawthread is not as heavily moderated as people here like to pretend that it is. The only reason why it might clog up the thread because the thread can hit the bump limit in like 3-5 hours just from requests alone an a long argument just makes the thread hit it faster. >>420967 From what I saw, it is more that the "Thread Police" are accusing him of being the "Honeyspammer".
Also why are we have these arguments here? Should it be in the 4chan Waaambulance thread? Maybe that thread should be a sticky so people can know it exists.
I keep hearing a lot of complaining about the /aco/ drawthread which is probably done by the guys who get pick on in those threads. I invite you guys to spend some time in the /trash/ drawthread and realize just how shit a drawthread could be. A thread where there is no artists and near constant trolling and counter trolling by people who use different drawthreads on different boards and sites.
I wish anthro was allowed on /aco/ so I could leave that place completely but that will never happen.
>>420969 >The drawthread is not as heavily moderated as people here like to pretend that it is. Maybe not compared to its own. But compared to other threads on the site, it has significantly more activity. I've seen plenty of clearly rule breaking threads on /aco/ that went entirely unnoticed for a long time, while the drawthreads have anything bad taken care of in minutes. This is true on both /co/ and /aco/ too.
>>420981 >I've seen plenty of clearly rule breaking threads on /aco/ that went entirely unnoticed for a long time, while the drawthreads have anything bad taken care of in minutes. This is true on both /co/ and /aco/ too. Reminds me of /co/ caturdays. There would literally be a janitor waiting there to try and delete it with a minute.
>>420988 Most of the furry porn they would post was just pinup/cheesecake shit that was no different than the pics in other threads. In the drawthread, you would get banned over any sexualized anthro pic whether it was actual porn or not. I guess they figured if we are going to catch a 3 day ban, might as well request porn.
>>420992 >literally any furry character request gets removed in the /co/ drawthread, No they don't. It's almost always the caturday requests. Sometimes other cheesecake requests featuring anthro get removed but not all the time and not to the level of how they treat the caturday requests.
>I haven't seen a Swat Kats thread there either for a very long time There was one just yesterday that got deleted https://boards.fireden.net/co/thread/117515573/ People dumped porn and tried to turn it into a /pol/ thread but it still stayed up for a while.
>>420995 >The janitors and mods don't go as hard as they did a few years ago Well I stopped checking 4chan completely a few years ago due to overmoderation, so yeah.
I still check ever once a while but it usually takes around an hour max before some post I make get deleted or the captcha becomes impossible to solve. Or to see deleted posts getting quoted, or an interesting thread getting deleted before I can read through it.
>>421003 That doesn't really matter, knowing the url you can check them in the archives. In fact, many threads are easier to read through the archives, or through an app that permanently caches incoming posts, given how many posts get deleted.
>>421142 If you mean the /trash/ threads, it's because that the only board outside of /b/ that allows furry porn. If you mean /aco/ well that is the only board where you can request vanilla porn of /co/ characters since /co/ mods bans any porn request unlike /v/ or /a/.
>>416117 I'm this close to disassociating from /aco/. assholes insulting actual autists (which included my cousin's son who died from COVID-19 months ago). Are these 6th-grade sociopathic reptiles never received any affection as children?
>>421157 That's not a case of /aco/ sucking, it's more like a case of standard lingo on anonymous imageboards. People seem to forget that part of the charm of 4chan is that you are *allowed* to be a total asshole and say anything you want without any repercussions thanks to anonymity. For example, way before the PC/LGBT culture emerged, everyone on every board was referring to each other as fag or nigger, so much that both phrases effectively lost their meaning as insults.
tl:dr; don't jump in the pool if you don't know how to swim.
>>421185 No. Bans used to be public, there was even a public list for them to browse, and you also had a suggestion box form which had public replies from the administration. The ban list may be there (I didn't check), but visible bans are extremely rare and used only as jokes, the suggestion box got 0 updates after Hiro took over and then was removed entirely, and the whole "high quality posts" rule basically gives carte blanche for janitors to delete any post they don't like with no rhyme or reason. Moot at least told his moderators how to run the site, for better or ill. Hiro doesn't do jack shit beyond hiring more janitors every three or so months and letting the site rot.
>>422056 You can get your IP changed with some ISPs. If you use ADSL, fiber, or anything else that requires PPPoE logins, you can usually just reconnect and get a new IP. If you have the same IP, try to change the mac address of whatever device that is closest to the incoming internet; either your router or your PC (or maybe a modem if you have access to it). When I had cable, this latter was necessary to change IPs.
The biggest threat to 4chan Prime right now is bots. It is one thing to have no life weirdoes mindlessly spamming the same thing every day; it is ANOTHER ENTIRELY to have robots spam with even less soul and even more often.
>>423109 4chan mods filtered soiboy like, a week after the meme was started. Always funny to point that soylent beverage was enough for a quick response from the moderation, but spamming "nigger" is still wildly allowed and stronger than ever
>>423582 >>423581 It's from a tv show that ran for 8 years, and one of those kids is not world famous, there's no hidden message about it. Congrats on the "this should be illegal", your family must be really proud.
>>423674 There's a bunch of fag that actually believes that spamming shit they dislike will make mods pull a mlp and ban the subject for them forever. Whenever you see someone complaining "XXFags are spamming again" in a board, there's high chances they are the ones doing the spam. /co/ anime threads in generals never feel like the people inside have ever watched any anime, not even pokemon or dragon ball, it's really alien to watch them hate something the ignore so much.
>>423880 >But it is also AWESOME since the bit activity actually went down. My thoughts. There's a hypothesis it got rid of all the bots for a while. Or maybe the phoneposters. Either is a win. On the plus side, it might encourage movement towards alternate *chans. On the down side, it might encourage movement towards alternate *chans.
>>423918 It's just so blatant on /co/, it's in every thread, no matter the subject, at all time of the day. you can't make a compilation for it, it would be a permanant video on the whole board 24/24. I feel like there's more impunity to do it on /co/ too, on other boards mods tend to delete threads and ban people. On /co/.... not so much. At best you see a shadow ban, and that's because you were the victim.
>>423924 I feel like co's subject plays a role in this. comics and cartoons used to be a super niche fandom but recently it became normalized so you have constant culture clash between people who have specialized in an IP for 35 years and 12 years olds with 18 pronouns that insist 1500$ worth of funko and a youtube link is way enough to take control of a general thread. Shit turns to pol because politics is really the only insults that exists online anymore.
>>423945 Funny thing is, back in the 00s no one gave a shit about insults on 4chan because it was a place you could insult anything and anyone freely. Everyone spent so much time being assholes to others that eventually we stopped giving a crap about it. And now that /co/ is its own community, people got asshurt about insults again.
>>423977 /co/ is dreadfully boring and has been for a while. Tribal shit isn't inviting conversation unless you are a convert warrior of the cause./trash/ is for the mentally challenged though, most thread are empty, it's the same folder of pictures in loop for weeks and weeks and weeks.
