2018-12-13: Provider mandated maintenance on the search server will begin 2018-12-14 UTC-0 09:30-10:30, and may require the search to be powered off from 03:00-15:00.
Year-end planned maintenance on the full image server to replace degraded parity drive is also suggested by the Tetrarchy for 12-28 to 1-06, TBA. 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.

DEMANDS against the 4chan staff

No.2495894 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Mods like to pretend they don’t read this board so...
>ITT: We plan a revolution against the 4chan staff.
Before doing so however, we need to create a list of demands that the staff can choose to accept or deny to potentially prevent the revolution. Add your demand in numerical order ITT.
(Best Practices:
A) Ignore bootlickers, trolls, jannies, and mods who say horse shit like IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, LEAVE because the reality is if these folks in power don’t like it, we will fuck their shit up. Those are the only two options.
B) Copy this thread and paste it in your notes or a .txt file in the event that mods get immature nuke this thread. Repost once it dies.)

I’ll start:

1) Use a different platform for the captcha system.
We no longer wish to train Google’s worrisome A.I. just for some more revenue in Hiro’s pockets. Additionally, we notice that you have selected the strictest setting for this recaptcha, allowing for some anons to have to solve over 15 captchas before posting and raking in additional revenue for Hiroyuki.
Here are some other captcha services that you can use in place of reCAPTCHA:
Deathbycaptcha - http://www.deathbycaptcha.com/
2captcha - https://2captcha.com/
Anticaptcha - https://anti-captcha.com/
decaptcher - http://de-captcher.com/
Expertdecoders - http://expertdecoders.com/
Captchatronix - http://www.captchatronix.com/
Image Typerz - http://www.imagetyperz.com/
9kw.eu - https://www.9kw.eu/
Cheap Captcha - http://cheapcaptcha.com/
Bypass Captcha - http://bypasscaptcha.com/

The state of /vg/

No.2495433 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
/vg/ is overcrowded. This means that the time it takes for a thread to reach page 10 is way too low, maybe under half an hour. The consequences of that for slower generals are lots of spam bumping or discussion/shitposting about completely unrelated things, which leads to a general, very noticable decrease in quality, which then also leads to more people leaving, intensifying the problem in a vicious cycle.
Many generals of more niche games have already died or been merged with other generals, where they live on only in spirit. Others consider moving to other boards or chans.
Most people blame the fault of this problem on the anime waifu phone gambling gacha games that are ludicrously popular for some reason.

Something has to be done. Either:
>increase the amount of pages on /vg/
>create a separate board for phone or anime game generals

Post suggestions for how to improve /vg/ or how to reach someone who has the say on 4chan because jesus christ this is fucking unbearable.

What boards do you think should be created? This is in general, in response to whatever problems you think need to be solved.
>/cel/ - Celebrities
Gets rid of shitposting on several boards, especially /mu/ and /tv/.
>/fur/ - Furfaggotry
Bring /trash/ back as the dumping ground for shitty threads.
>/fap/ - Misc. Porn
Push all the porn off /b/, /soc/ and /trash/.

Lurker to active poster ratio

No.2495415 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Is there any idea about the general lurker to active poster ratio? Do you think it would be different from board to board? Which board do you think has the highest lurker to active poster ratio?

I used to think the promotions meme was that your boss walked in, saw the porn, and then promoted you.
