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.
Why is every other thread on /tv/ about Breaking Bad?
The /got/ people were kind enough to pack their shitposting into a general, but the breaking bad people are spewing all over the place. Its a mess, and that is saying something as /tv/ is prone to diarrrheaaal bouts daily.
I have my theories as to why, but lets hear some feedback.
And while you're at it, please hang, draw, and quarter whoever's idea it was to double the post cooldown time. This shit's ridiculous and completely prevents anything approaching a realtime conversation.
What are the rules about having threads on /b/ that obviously belong on other boards?
As far as I know there are no clear rules about threads on /b/ yet sometimes when someone starts a wallpaper thread for instance there will bea few people saying wallpaper threads do not belong on /b/. Often the image I posted will be used as argument but nothing seems to be done against wallpaper/porn threads by janitors/mods.
Just today someone was trying to derail a wallpaper thread by avataring and posting large posts, his posts were at one point all deleted and he didn't post afterwards so I assume he got banned. That means that a mod was aware of the thread but the thread wasn't deleted.
A few days ago a porn thread was publicly locked by moot with a post of him saying that "there is a board for porn".
It would be nice to get some kind of official clarification about such threads

1-people taking pictures of their in-game characters asses in the nude or barely nude and posting them without text or just "butts" 2-blatant avatarfag using their character's face with in-game screenshots 3-role-playing and e-rp using their avatars with other avatar posters 4-fanfics & erotic fanfics; couple of namefags/avatarfags doing ridiculous off-topic stories of their own character and posting those stories in every single thread 5-shitposts about watersports, scat, pedophilia, beastiality, etc. 6-constant blogpost shit like "hey guys what are you having for lunch?" and other off-topic shit 7-waifu shit has been there for years but sometimes it gets ridiculous with waifufags telling people who are genuinely trying to talk about the lore, gameplay, mods, etc to shut up and/or fuck off 8-couple of people posting other people's info (address & pictures) and spamming the thread mocking other regular posters, derailing the thread with drama 9-Steam group drama and other bullshit like that; though this seems to have stopped in the last couple of weeks. 10-newfags get ran off by older posters with shitty elitist attitudes; the general has basically the same set of people for months or at least until one of those new posters endure through all the shit and sticks around
There is probably more but that's all I can list right now off the top of my head.
