I have nothing against Waifu threads. But Rose threads bring another level of creepy. These threads have been banished from most of 4chan, but they are still found on /b/.
In these threads, they try to find her address and other personal details. One person claims to have found it, and was spamming it. One of the regular posters, named King, posts pictures of himself cutting his arms. It's very bloody, and it shows the kind of person who stalks Rose.
She's going to end up dead, or raped at this point. And it will be planned on 4chan.
/b/ steam begging threads.

Really, There's no point to them, They are annoying, they (like the MLP threads before /mlp/ serve no real purpose.
My writing this is at times there's four or more active (I had personally witnessed this about two hours ago.) it's an hourly occurrence to see a new one pop up. sometimes there will be two or 3 active, and some blathering idiot will still feel it's necessary for them to make a whole new thread to beg for the game they want for free.
I know nobody cares about /b/ and it's really the board where everyone kind of just dumps their trash, but shouldn't they count as /r/ threads? (and thus be kept in /r/) as they are requesting
TL;DR: steam threads are fucking annoying, ban them or point them towards /r/
TL:DFR: if you can't read that bit of text you don't belong on the internet, let alone to an intelligent species.
To keep it a semi-respectful topic, how do you feel about these threads?
I'm willing to bet half the time the threads are started, someone is recording all the steam ID's posted, to try and make a mass account steal.
Returning A Board We Abandoned

We should bring back the loli board, simply because 4chan has become so popular we do not need to fear google taking down our search results. We are popular enough, people want it, its still on /b/, I cannot see why we even let another website, even google, tell us what we can have on our website, at the time I was mortified. I am completely open to discuss reasons for this with anyone, especially mods, as to why or why not to bring it back, I'm curious as to why we don't already have it back. I could understand if we put a warning before entering the page (which we should do for NSFW boards anyway) telling people what to expect.
We went from the image in this post...
Why does 4chan have mods and janitors? They're useless.

4chan has really been a place about being able to say (pretty much) anything you want. We're the underbelly of the internet, and we have boards where people post gore, porn, and some of the other worst things people have to offer. And yet, we have these mods and janitors here telling us we can't say certain things. Does it even really matter?
On topic specific boards (/mu/, /sp/, /v/, etc.) people get so upset when people post off-topic things, but does it really need to be removed? If those users don't like it, there are tons of other websites devoted to only their topics (/tg/ can go to D & D forum, /sp/ can go to ESPN forums) if they don't like it. It's not necessarily that people should overrun a board with nothing but shitposting, but having some offtopic discussions is good, especially with other people with like-minded ideas.
Then there's the actual mods and janitors. They are horrible irregular in their thread deleting if they do delete something (which they shouldn't). They'll leave one off-topic thread but delete other new ones that pop up, as if the other one is special. But mods and janitors shouldn't delete any threads. Just leave them be, there's a reason they exist: because people want to talk about it, or just goof off for a little bit. The only thing mods and janitors should delete are the global 'no' list (CP, porn on SFW boards, etc.).
In a perfect 4chan, mods and janitors only delete threads with multiple reports, or threads on the 'no' list.
And yes, I know this is just some guy on the internet complaining on 4chan. But a 3 day ban for posting about tripfags? That's technically board related talk as it relates to the board and who is on it. The mods do an awful job of handing out bans and deleting threads, and I don't think an answer of "well we'll do an effort to delete everything!" would be good. I think it should be the exact opposite.
Everyone else here agree?

Guys. Just got done dickin' around on ehentai and it came to me. Why don't we create an official 4chan game? Something like...say a card game like pokemon or MTG?
Instead of fire, water, and grass, we could have the three main boards /b/, /v/, and /a/. We could have the smaller boards as spells, or as smaller types /x/ being psychic, or /sp/ being fighting, and things such as that. We could have a system set up where you can play with other anons in between posting, and could award points, where someone who saves up enough points could buy things like the captcha bypass or other nifty things.
I just wonder which board would come out on top.
/sp/ shitposting solution
0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
A /sp/artan a couple of days ago posted an idea on how to solve the shitposting problem on /sp/: split /sp/ into two boards, /spg/ where only game thread discussions are allowed and leave /sp/ laxly moderated like it is now.
Of course my reaction was "This is stupid" but it turns out that this idea has been tried to great success over on Futaba Channel. Futaba has "flipside" boards, where the content that's posted will still generally be about the board's topic but where the rules are very seldom enforced. As an example, their anime board (2D) has a flipside (2D Nijiura). You will only see anime and manga discussion on 2D. On Nijiura, you also see anime and manga discussion, but you will also see anything from character imagedumps, NEET threads, to bicycle and train threads, but they're all tangentially related in some way to otaku culture.
So why not apply this example to /sp/? Leave it laxly moderated but still sports related, and make another board so that people who only want to talk about sports all the time are satisfied. Game threads will still be allowed on /sp/ but so will stuff that's tangentially related to /sp/ and sports culture. In /spg/ you will have only game threads and will be better anyways because game threads need larger bump limits.
>BUT THAT'S LIKE TURNING /sp/ INTO /b/ WITH SPORTS
It already is "/b/ with sports". You're fighting the current when you can have the solution without turning /sp/ into a concentration camp.
