Clarification About Avatarfagging

ID:WUN0arks No.96129 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
In light of the recent decision to officially classify avatarfagging as a bannable offense, I'd like to request a little clarification.

I like the clarity that thread IDs give to the boards they are on, and from time to time I use a series of similar images on some of the boards which don't have thread IDs to achieve a similar effect of my own posts in a thread as being from a single user. It makes the question of "who's the samefag" a lot easier to answer. I try to avoid using the same series of images across multiple different threads and I never use a name or a tripcode.

Other times, when there is an opportunity to deliver a punchline that is related to the board's content (such as making a squid pun with an Ika Musume image on /a/), I like to take it.

What I do not do is maintain a permanent set of images meant to identify me from one thread to another, such as /a/'s Taiga. I also do not roleplay in the manner of /a/'s Alice Margatroid.

Are all of these behaviors equally against the avatarfagging rule? If not, which ones are and which ones aren't?

I don't know what you're trying to pull with this shit, but you're only hurting legitimate posters with your 60sec post cooldowns.

I already spend more than enough time just waiting for people to reply, now I have to wait twice as long?

There's no way I'd renew my 4chan pass just to not have to type a captcha every 60 seconds.
And you know what the best part is?
There is literally zero disadvantage to sage now, so people are going to start sage downvoting like crazy.

Repeating Integers (Dubs) should return to /b/

ID:UMlFcPvd No.749536 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I believe repeating integers should return to /b/.

1. /b/ is pretty dead and dubs will spice it up again

2. The revocation of dubs should only be present in boards that will actually interfere with the board content (i.e. /v/).

3. in >>>/global/rules/3 it states that
>Do not post the following outside of /b/: Trolls, flames, racism, off-topic replies, uncalled for catchphrases, macro image replies, indecipherable text (example: "lol u tk him 2da bar|?"), anthropomorphic ("furry"), grotesque ("guro"), post number GETs ("dubs"), or loli/shota pornography.

>post number GETs ("dubs"),

Isn't that a bit of a contradiction? If there are no dubs on /b/, how can we even GET?

Face it. The /b/ community is already at a turmoil of repetitive threads, example: roll, 69 decides.. etc... and that was primarily why dubs were removed correct? But it appears that plan of removing dubs has failed so dubs should be reimplemented.

I hope moot or a moderator will see the light and re-implement dubs on /b/. Thank you for your time.

Homestuck Generals on /co/: hiatus edition

ID:kcco4aHM No.564574 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Homestuck is on hiatus and the question *was* whether the Generals should continue on /co/ for the duration.
The discussion morphed very quickly into /co/'s general opinion of HSG (not HS) and it would probably be better to hold this here.

Trialing thread / board ID's on /pol/

ID:HVoipyHA No.520430 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Mods, can we please trial thread or board ID's on /pol/. With the anonymous nature of posting it is, presently, impossible for us to see where the shit posting is coming from. For all we the user know, the people complaining about the problems of /pol/ could be the very people creating the problematic threads.

This worked with /b/ so why not try it out, if only for a limited time. At the very least the crap posting will stay the same. Whats there to lose?

New banners are shit

These new banners are shit and look like they have been created by a reddit fag. Moot/the mods should go on a real purge.

get your shekles back

If you bought a 4chan pass before the 60 second post counter, go to the bank and get a chargeback now. It might not be too late if you bought recently.

"Invisible accounts" for more effective banning

ID:8HonX+e6 No.781722 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I have an idea.

"Invisible accounts"

Every person, in order to post, has to attribute his email adress with a single password. You input your email and password in a separate form before posting. Banning would work over e-mail accounts, in combination with IP banning, so people need to actually make a new email to be able to post, in addition to resetting their router. Since most IP addresses are dynamic, it would definitely decrease the ability for people to ban evade, and it would make banning a more viable option. Doesn't ruin the anonymous thing too, since the email wouldn't show up to anyone but 4chan mods. Also would help filtering 14-year-olds out a bit.

Plus, you could easily filter 10 minute mail sites for applicable email.

What do you think?
