There has been a lot of arguing over whether or not the Dreamcast should be considered retro or not, and I have realized that both sides of the argument have very valid points. The Dreamcast fans are right in saying the gens are not a good way to say if something is retro or not, because retro means old and gens tend to overlap. Everyone else is right in saying that it's a slippery slop, if we make the Dreamcast retro it shows that the mods are willing to change the rules as far as what is retro and up next is the PS2 which was discontinued in 2013.
It has made me realize that the way /vr/ defines retro is wrong. Not only should it be about age and not gen, but it should also define when something becomes retro. I say retro should not be defined by gen or when a console came out, but how old a specific game is. I purpose that all games that are 15 years old or older should be retro. Even though this wont make Dreamcast retro immediately, but it will set it up to become retro in the very near future (thus making it a good compromise). It will also stop any arguing about making other consoles retro after the Dreamcast becomes retro. I feel 15 is a good amount of time. 10 isn't old enough my 14 year old nephew has nostalgic memories of playing games that are 10 years old, and 20 is too old we want to try and keep most of what is already considered retro on /vr/ retro.
Yeah, it's always the same shills who come into these /vr/ threads trying to explain away the mods incompetence. Anyone who isn't a mod or janitor trying to cover his ass on /vr/ already knows how fucking stupid it is to keep it off /vr/.
"Lern" to do your job you fucking piece of shit.
Ya caught me red-handed.
Actually I just bothered to report the post you linked as a rule violation.
Since you're searching my posts go and see that I've never argued for keeping the DC off /vr/. Not once. I don't care, and it seems like a retro enough thing to me. I hope it does get included on the board.
I just want you chucklefucks to stop shitting up /vr/ while you tantrum in the meantime.
Why are you still posting on /q/ after moot said to keep out of the threads about moderation?
Sometimes, during a debate, some /pol/lacks (not just /pol/lacks, but they seem to be most fond of it) will take it upon themselves to spam links, pictures, infographics and quotes all over the place. How do you tackle this? I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it, as if you could complain about "too much evidence", but the problem is there's no way to read every single one, fact check it and look for criticisms, and then address it before the thread is pruned, there's simply too much. The even bigger problem is that the person you were debating will now just link to the post that's relevant to what he's saying and claim to have won, knowing full well there's no way you can address every single one without accepting them at face value.
How do you deal with people who do this? Do you just let it be?
1. Post your own factual evidence for them to debunk.
2. Skim through their evidence quickly and look for weak or suspicious sections to focus on. Debate about specific key points instead of juggling many at once.
3. Save analysis and criticism of commonly posted things so you can repost the rebuttals when the same infographics are reused. (If they're not reusing them, they're putting a lot more effort into the debate than you are, so you need to step it up.)
Of course, if your issue is that their infographics are right and your personal fantasies are wrong, then perhaps you've just been proven wrong and should change your mind. Proceed to wave the infographics in the faces of people you used to agree with until they present a rebuttal. If they succeed, reuse the arguments they convinced you with. If they fail, take advantage of anonymity to declare victory after switching sides.
>>787123 >Debating with a /pol/lack >Outside of /pol/ or /k/
Lurk /pol/ there are sometimes counter infographs which de-bunk miss-represented arguments.
Or, just do the best you can, little by little and call the guy a twat for throwing everything at you at once.
>>787155 >Debating with a /pol/lack >Outside of /pol/ or /k/
2 gits decided to have an argument about trans people on /d/ ruined the entire thread and killed my boner while making total tits of themselves. Thats a hard thing to do.
>get permabanned from /co/ for completely on-topic thread
That's not a templated ban so there's a good chance it's not real.
Why does /co/ hate FOP again?
There's one shitposting waifufag on there and apparently the trigger-happy mod mistook me for him. Gotta go on the IRC and get this taken care of.
>go on /co/ >go on /v/ >go on /sp/ >seeing threads up that were there from last night >everything's moving at a snail's pace Since fucking with the post counters, everyone's apparently packed their bags and moved to Reddit
He promised one, he hasn't written it yet.
this is what happens when you willingly pay for something you used to get for free, they keep taking shit from you and selling it back
get ready for 4chan platinum passes, that reduce the posting time to 30 seconds
>>785227 >discourage people from posting images >on an imageboard
Thread creators should be able to post in their own thread with a 30 second post timer
everyone should be able too
WELCOME TO /q/ HOME OF THE RETARDS
Please hear me out on this.
As you know, there have been a lot of people using tripcodes just to shitpost. You should make it that after a trip has been banned a few times, the trip becomes unusable therefore increasing the quality of the posts of each board. Anon won't be complaining about shitposting tripfags and contributing tripfags get attention for their quality posts, it's a win-win situation really. Moot, mods, get to work!
I really wish you had namesync so you could see my name and trip
I'm actually having a great time reading that thread.
It's actually just two butthurt linux fanboys and Chemo. His posts are pretty amusing at times when it is midnight in America.
Another thing is that people would always think of tripfags the same way all the time. If you are having a very hard time ignoring them, try to use an extension that can make everybody as Anonymous. It greatly helps.
Banning tripfags would only make them much worse since you gave them the most amount of attention they need.
As a tripfag on flag boards, I support this.
there are already a bunch of tripcodes that get you banned when you use them, this isn't a new idea.
And FYI, it didn't work. It makes people come back with a new tripcode, and a renewed determination to shit things up. Worst case scenario if happens too much, namesync is broadened to work on more boards so people's trips can't be banned.
but tripcode users are our tripfriends!
m00t what the shit, my ID is the same in every thread
you might as well have forced a tripcode on me this isn't hot pic related it's you
Sounds like you need some tips.
Always use a smartphone or mobile broadband to post. That way you can get a new IP address rapidly by disconnecting from and reconnecting to the network. This means: - No waiting 60 seconds between posts - No persistent IDs to compromise your anonymity - No being banned for absurd offenses like "posting a colorful pony" On a smartphone, an easy way to do this is to turn airplane mode on and off. Be sure to change your password with each post, or the mods will use it to track you and delete your posts.
i am sure the reason we have ids is so the community can have a discussion without shitposers ruining it.
like if you actually had something pertinent to say, instead of shitposting like a retard, we'd be able to identify that it was you when you discussing whatever issue you had brought up.
you're a pretty cool guy with some nice tips
shame mods keep deleting your threads
You just realized that?
It's been that way for months bro. Also don't be talking bad about Fig Newmans. They're actually quite good.
>Ask for more and better moderation on boards >instead moot just makes people post less How long until he stop pretending he knows what he's doing
>How long until he stop pretending he knows what he's doing I don't think he ever said he knew what he was doing Think he's admitted he's a dumbass
>Short Story: Remove the /co/ janitor. >Long Story: The images explains it with direct examples. Some posts in that thread were violating rule 8 by outright complaining about moderation, but the fact that the /co/ janitor is severely abusing his power here cannot be argued.
I was just posting examples outside of that chimpout thread
>doesn't you have to act like a some faggot
well here you are doing exactly that
>I don't get why getting banned is such a big deal to you people. >you people
Are you referring to my white heritage?
Why you racist nigga?
>>787110 >I was just posting examples outside of that chimpout thread
So? You think people haven't been banned for saying nigger on a blue board before then? Why is this such a big deal to you chucklefucks now?
you're the one getting analpained about it
fucking black panther
Can we still talk about The Boondocks?
>>787152 >fucking black panther
They're hated by everyone including the black community, only sheep actually like them
Why wouldnt we be able to?
Egomaniac /jp/ janitor refuses to delete NSFW content.
Thanks for deleting the NSFW image, now why can't I delete this thread?
I'm unto you ya sneaky little bastard
Screencapping, emailing moot and preparing to spam the shit out of /q/. I hope you enjoy your demotion, fag.
>it hit the post limit
How can someone get so butthurt by a photo of a crude sketch of some tits on a tablet?
did I miss out on something?
moot please respond
did I miss out on some epic memes? I really hate it when I miss out on memes :^( especially one of my favorite boards
>>786522 >/g/ >favorite board
Oh wow moot shitposting on another board. What a surprise.
