>>421045 >oh really? how is 4chan now? slowed down considerably and prioritizing "higher quality content", which just means that it's easier to shill the site with disinformation, and any post or thread the janitors deem to be low quality will get deleted with zero trace other than the archives. Lots of potentially interesting or fun discussions get axed due to that.
Also everything is archived indefinitely which makes the site considerably less anonymous.
>maybe i should get twitter then. b is underage fags anyways I would say that /b/ has been purposefully undermined over the decade to make it increasingly irrelevant. It's not even the top three boards on 4chan now, which is telling a lot. Twitter is mostly cool because every drawfag from tumblr went there. But keep in mind that it's account based so people will be able to look up the shit you posted 7 years ago. So keep different accounts for your different category posts.
>sounds like a deal A lot of us check +4 more often but simply have nothing to reply to. So yeah.
>>421046 >any post or thread the janitors deem to be low quality will get deleted with zero trace wtf is that? whose idea was that? sounds completely against chans main idea >>421046 >maybe i should get twitter was joking. would rather go to reddit tbh. >>421046 >simply have nothing to reply to oh anon-kun thats never what 4chan was about. you need to keep your spirit up!
>>421047 >wtf is that? whose idea was that? sounds completely against chans main idea
Seems like you haven't visited 4chan for the past 6 years or so if you didn't knew about it. It's there because the site needs to look more "presentable", to be able to get advertisers. It's also why Hiro committed advertiser fraud by splitting the SFW boards into a separate domain, as 4chan was blacklisted from nearly all advertisers. So the over moderation is there to keep potentially disturbing posts off of the safe-for-work boards.
But, in practice it means that janitors are on a power trip and run the boards as they like. For example, there's a janitor on /co/ who posts paid referrer links in the win-o threads (reuploads comics into cyberlocker sites which give you a small share for every time someone checks the file). This is explicitly against the rules, but the janitor can clear the moderation queue when his posts are marked, as well as delete any posts that mention this in the thread. And beyond that if you make a post that a janitor dislikes, it just disappears. No trace, no explanation. If you repost the same enough times, you'll get marked for spamming. There's nowhere to mention this either, on IRC the general consensus is "lol who cares" and on posting on /qa/ is pissing against the wind.
>was joking. would rather go to reddit tbh. Wouldn't know about the communities there, I check twitter only due to the drawfags. And the shorter posts are reminiscent of the old 4chan content.
also >160027181688.gif unix number passed 16 now, I didn't even notice.
>>421050 I can't figure out how to use either, and Reddits new design sucks so much that I stopped to even bother. I only check twitter for the drawfags and I use RSS feed proxies to get their new posts instead of "following" them.

>>421098 >at least im after improvement both in quality and quantity. Well, if you indeed are after improvement, you will hopefully learn and improve from what we have to say: When you come into a new website, or any new community, take a bit of time to understand and respect their history and culture. Failing to do so is an easy way to generate hate and earn bans. We did reply to you in the pinned/stickied thread, not sure if you saw that or not. This is not 4chan. This is not 8chan. We are a slower site and we value the comfy atmosphere. An increase in quantity is not our main goal, and we strive to maintain or improve quality. More posts can be good, but only if the posts add value to the community.
Making a thread with no real direction (>>421079), making new threads that should be put in existing threads (>>421035, >>421074 and >>421090 all go in the Speak Your Mind general thread, which I admit may not be obvious anymore), making posts that suggest you have ignored our replies (>>421036, posted after >>421025,>>421027), calling our site 'unusable' and 'dead' (>>421038, >>421041), showing complete disregard for the site's purpose, insulting it and proposing no remedy (>>421090) and unnecessarily insulting our community (>>421059) all create a bad impression. Some of it is playful fun, some of it may be an accident, some is naïvety after coming from other sites, but all this put together is why you are getting so many rude replies.
This isn't to say 'no fun allowed'. Fun is certainly allowed, but creating drama and diluting board quality is a real threat to our community. You have come in here expecting it to be something else, and complain about it not being that something else, after we told you it is something else. You have made a couple of good posts that promote discussion, and those are valuable to us, but the rest are insults, filler or 'train of thought' posts that don't warrant a new thread. This place isn't enjoyed for giving people an adrenaline rush like 4chan or 8ch did.
Three of your posts have even been reported as spam. If you don't make an effort to put quality over quantity, I'll start having to treat them like spam.
>>421103 >take a bit of time to understand and respect their history and culture alright >We did reply to you in the pinned/stickied thread that person wasnt me >quantity is not our main goal takin notes >spam rude >lurk moar sigh
