2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.
/tv/ will list Bergman and Tarkovsky among their favorites while showing their true colors at any given time, discussing only kitsch trash and making any meaningful discussion about art film futile.
With /mu/ and /v/, discussion of art within their respective mediums is met with ridicule rather than indifference or false appeal. Although less common we gather in single threads and are bombarded with shit posting all around.
I ask that those with a lust for art, art that moves and awakens, have a board to call their own.
I sometimes tell somebody something in a thread. Sometimes, it is insignificant or a tad off-topic. Sometimes, they will even reply back to you. Sometimes, you have to post a quick reply back. Always, whenever this happens, I use sage because it isn't worth bumping the thread.
Guess what. I can't fucking do that shit anymore. I don't know what you were trying to achieve by this. People can drop in and leave a quick sage, and nothing else. But now that this is in place, I can't use sage the way it was meant to be used. All this is doing is hurting people who use it the right way, not the fucking /v/ermin who sage bomb shit.
- Change the board tag to "Original Content and Greentext" - - A sticky thread that tells people to ask for advice on /adv/, post KPop generals on /mu/, /tv/ refugee threads on /s/, /pol/'s incendiary bullshit back to /pol/ and so on - Increased moderation to remove derailing crap and shitposting - Post IDs - Is it possible to put Force-Anon on? - What ever happened to the rule against putting "Bloxxx blox fartblox" at the end of all your posts? That doesn't seem to be enforced at all. - Neither is Global Rule 3
Classic anime threads on /a/ often get the canned response 'discussed to death' even if most of /a/s userbase is actually pretty recent and most likely don't know them, and those kind of threads usually sink into oblivion very fast due to tons of threads about contemporary stuff swamping them
Wouldn't it be more sensible to have a separate board for older anime (pre '95 or whatever) where those threads don't sink into oblivion so fast? Ther are many obscure anime that are very good, and this would get people a better way to get to know them and have interesting discussion(instead of on /a/ where you maybe missed a thread about some interesting old stuff because it dissappeared just a minute before you checked the catalogue).
Last month, in one of /vp/ hype days, someone made a suggestion here about putting a countdown on /vp/ for the release of the new games, since hype is just getting bigger each time and after the release the board will start to dull slowly, we'd like to enjoy it as much as possible, and it's less than a month left Just trowing the idea out there, /q/ seems to be busy with other problems
One for eternal circlejerk generals for all the tripfags to talk about traps, have yuro/USA flame wars, tripfag drama and le epic lad /b/antz. Subsequently, there will be a board for actual sports discussions.
I figure a bunch of us got them when they first came out. I bet moot is curious how many people are going to reup.
Me, I'm not sure. A year ago, /sp/ was a lot more fun. I used to post on there a lot more, so a pass made sense. But now I hardly ever go one cause it's all eternal generals and the game threads are just spamming idiots. Also, the one minute cool down timer is going to limit my posting speed anyway.
If I new that /sp/ was going to get more lax moderation, and that the cool down timer would revert back to 30 seconds, I'd probably buy another pass.
