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

4chan history

ID:pWT+LDrH No.774269 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Every once in a while I see someone claim that 4chan was, at some point in time, some kind of secret Something Awful goon club. People seem to be saying that, after /a/ was separated from /b/ (i.e. /b/ stopped being "anime/random"), /a/ and the other anime boards became "ADTRW: imageboard edition"; while /b/ became "FYAD: imageboard edition". However, when piecing things together from the available archived threads, my personal memory of 4chan, and a dash of common sense, this... doesn't really seem true.

First of all, I'll admit that I only started browsing 4chan 2 years into its life. But by that point, /b/ had already become a completely different beast. FYAD had its memes and /b/ had its ironic posts, but as a general rule, the two boards only seem to have been similar in a very superficial way; they were 'everything goes', wacky-zany random shitposting boards, but the actual nature of the random shitposting was very different. Looking at the SA archives, FYAD in 2003-2005 was, even back then, largely aiming for sarcasm, irony and satire, while /b/ was more 'let's post dumb shit for the hell of it while shitting on things we hate head-on'. FYAD was also the type of place that internet-detectived people like Shii for being 'anime pedos', and 'anime pedo' material was only posted on FYAD with a veil of irony and "heh, we're just making fun of the people who like this stuff for REAL". Meanwhile, /b/ was full of anime weirdos that didn't even try to hide it with irony.

Sure, I first came across /b/ 2 years into 4chan's life, but I also have this: http://web.archive.org/web/20031008225412/http://img.4chan.net/b/imgboard.htm - a very, VERY early /b/ from late 2003. Aside from trip/namefaggotry being accepted and very common back then, 2003 /b/ doesn't seem all that different from modern 4chan. It's already vastly, VASTLY different from 2003 FYAD-style posting.

/fur/

ID:lga+BMIr No.783297 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
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.

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

How soon before we have registration and usernames?

get more mods for /pol/

ID:0P3yo/58 No.720307 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
delete /x/ level conspiracies about aliens and satanism, tinychat spam that belongs on /soc/, and general shitposting/spam. i report it but nothing happens so i'm guessing we don't have enough mods.

or if i'm mistaken about the board and all this is allowed, can we get an actual politics and current events board?

Fix the textboards

ID:dyE/1lAb No.456617 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Jesus christ moot.

Will you appoint some moderators to the text boards already? Specifically /prog/, which seems to attract inane amounts of spam.

Most of the spam is also exactly the same, or malformed moonrunes, or the same few words over and over. Get MrVacBob to write a god damn filter or something.

Please, ban the Jews retard, at least.

Sincerely,
/polecat kebabs/

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
>>775467
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
>>775977

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
H3dw9XdS
oXLjXCT9
BhurHr4a
cgs5SmHV
BYLGRw62
RFRfQ0vX
pR2GA/mJ


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