Non-Japanese animated material goes on /co/? /co/ ignores them and they seem more like /a/ material.

4chan Passes should be mandatory

ID:7c9ZUEP1 No.786290 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
If you are banned, your pass is revoked and you have to pay again to post.

How long do you think shitposters, spammers and trolls would stay around with that system in place?

This is clearly the answer to 4chans problems and would create an environment where people think about what they are posting and strive to contribute quality to the site

Banned recognizing the superiority of cute little girls

What the fuck is this bullshit? Can Mods ban who ever they want? I didn't break any rules. I didn't post CP or anything like that.

Explain the sense behind this.

Naruto Hater Mod exposed

ID:IirI0hfQ No.777268 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I was having a discussion on naruto being persecuted in this thread
when suddenly this brute gTqpY0NB barged in and started shitposting
I found him too supportive of the moderation and looked up the images he was posting and realized I was speaking with a mod

I e-mailed moot but he assured me that it couldn't be a mod
Decided to look into this matter looking up the image and discovered a slew of shitposting done under several IDs all of which are confirmed to be able to bypass the bot

I looked up posts by rapeape,/pol/ mod and mQr but none of them have the amount of shitposting, low quality and immature posts as this mod

IDs this mod has used

In the next post I'll show the startling similarities between gTqpY0NB and the other IDs

4chan PMQs/Q&A session #3

ID:qGRbyyoB ## Admin No.590845 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Welcome to our third installment of 4chan PMQs/Q&A! Don't know what 4chan PMQs are? They're detailed towards the end of this news post: http://www.4chan.org/news#106

A few notes:

-You can ask me anything you'd like. 4chan, personal, whatever.
-People have gotten annoyed in the past that I haven't answered their long questions. Straight up -- I will not write extremely long answers. Why? Because this thread will likely receive thousands of posts, and it would take me weeks to answer them all. I tend to choose questions that I can answer in a few sentences, so I can answer as many questions as possible.
-This time around I might use Vocaroo for longer responses. I am much quicker to verbalize my thoughts than I am to write them out, because I wordsmith my writing like a motherfucker.
-I will only be answering questions posted in *this* thread. Please do not ask me about questions submitted via e-mail, IM, or in another /q/ thread. If you want it answered, repost it here.
-I'll be hanging around for at least 4-5 hours. I tend to answer 20+ questions at a time, so if you don't see a reply from me for ~15 minutes, I'm probably answering a big batch, or writing a longer response.

The best questions are ones that will be useful to more than just yourself. Examples of these would include feature suggestions, bug reports, board requests, rule clarification, etc. Examples of shitty questions are "Can you read my ban appeal?" (No) and "fakk u suk my dick!!!!1" (Yes).

Other tips:

-This thread will likely get huge, so I'd suggest the following if you want to read my replies...
1) Click my name to highlight all of my posts in the thread. Protip: You can do this on any board with IDs, and always on capcoded posts.
2) From the board index, hover over the "Administrator Replies" quotelinks. I usually quote the question I'm answering, so you should be able to read all of my responses from the board index.

Let the tarring and feathering commence!

Can we discuss the hypothetical of /fur/ being restored? Not a board suggestion, though, just some discussion on what it could possibly bring.

I think that it would remove some of the cancer from /b/ and /v/, but that's just a theory.

Dear Moot

Please change it back to 30 seconds, obviously your not listening to what everyone in the community of 4chan wants (except for shitposters and le epic trells on /q/)

Sincerely a concerned Anon

mewtles selling the chan

ID:FhIlKytb No.472913 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
When do you guys see moot selling 4chan?

Look at what he's done, all in the past few years:

- 4chan Pass

- That shitty built in extension no one uses

- More boards

- Catalog (this is a DREAM for advertisers, hence moot pressing it)

- Trying to make 4chan appear more 'worksafe' and more than just a place people go to argue and jack off (that TED talk springs to mind).

- Starting up a new venture, canv.as, and spending his full time towards it. He already has 15 million invested into it from outside sources

- 4chan is losing money, but is worth a substantial sum due to its userbase (think of Redd1t in this case. It's increasingly hard to advertise and turn a profit, but the fact it has a large userbase makes it worth a huge amount; this is the same with 4chan)

I don't expect moot to reply to this, because after all this is confidential stuff and even mentioning that he will sell will cause a huge uproar, and likewise antithetical.

What do you guys think? Even if you don't agree with me, say I'm right; what will happen to 4chan? Will there be more ads? Perhaps ads between posts? Ads on a sidebar? Ads could be put anywhere, and rest assured most of these will be for porn.

Will 4chan die? Will we have to move on?

The 4chan obcession with reddit.

ID:jMBkLFyG No.389508 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
We all know about it. This has got to stop.

I bet some boards use "le" more than /r/f7u12. It's getting to the point where posters are creating this characacher of reddit, then becoming said characacher to prove a "point" It's insane, and the shitposting resulting from it is ridiculous.

Anything differetiating from the norm?


A picture you don't like?


An argument you don't have a counter to?

>gb2 reddit!

Can we please do SOMETHING about this? I know it's the communitys job to clean that shit up, but it's become a habit with some posters now. And this isn't just a one board thing (though it is quite bad in /v/), this is all over 4chan.

Is it at all possible to filter the word "Reddit" just how we filter 9fag, and for that matter, make mentioning and obsessing over it a bannable offence?
