I would very much like to know why there is no trap/transgendered/crossdressing board yet.
I will log into the /d/, and find over 3 threads just for it. just three weeks ago, i think we were on thread 30 something in a 3-4 day period.
On /b/, there is always a couple trap threads up.
I feel like it would be in the best interest of the regulars and viewers of these threads if a board was made for them themselves, as I know many people want one as is.
tl;dr trap threads have been flooding /d/, /b/ is becoming less random with a daily trap thread. make a CD/transgendered board please.

Can i please have some clarification on what is acceptable behavior when talking sports?
The new janitor deletes the usa sports appreciation threads, hes deleting basketball general threads, deleting espn discussion threads, barcelona threads, he deleted a kansas city chief thread because someone mentioned a player with the last name pope for fucks sakes.
People have been sharing ban screen shots for stupid reasons its out of control. Being banned for talking smack about your teams division rivals? Its sports. Thats what sports is about. People banter.
Im not even going to talk about the deleting of world event threads and power rankings because if thats what you want than fine its your website, feel free to do what you want but please give some clarification.
We cant brag after a win, cant make national threads, cant make basketball threads, etc etc. Wtf can we do?

This lady from the European Green Party wants to ban 4chan because it portrays women in a not entirely positive light.
>Any kind of sexual content on the Web, such as on open platforms like Twitter, could also be eventually ruled out
>(...) this will also include social networks, emails, and even the photos that European citizens upload

something needs to be done about /int/ and im not talking about the moderator, although his blocking of all isreali posters is obvious antisemitism under the guise of damage control to avoid a racist political discussion taking place. what needs to be addressed is the fact that he/she blocks this and not the blatant racism of the comparing a countries worth to its 'whiteness' or to how low the level of immigrants it receives. It needs better moderation, it shocks and appalls me that what should be the most open and accepting of boards (its called international for a reason, although all boards should really aspire to avoid any form of racism/oppression) is in fact possibly the second most racist board on here (don't even get me started on /pol/, that has to go if there is to be any hope for this site). everyday there are threads berating innocent Argentinians for not being 'white enough' as if the social construct of race has something to do with their countries worth, and the constant thread about how 'terrible' Sweden is because it has embraced multiculturalism and progressiveness, it is quite possibly the best nation for a person of color to live in and should not be mocked, but celebrated for that... anyways rant over, i just think /int/ needs better moderation to block the racism and /pol/ needs to go
Problems with tripcodes

Why aren't tripcodes disabled? The few people that use them for something productive aren't wide enough for them to be justified. Never once has using a trip ended in something pleasant. I know they are part of the culture, but they are part of the bad part of the culture. Please tell me moot doesn't like this part of the culture. Most of the shitposting used by them and directed towards them revolves around them having a trip. Just a little while ago, I couldn't care at all about them.
The are literally killing the boards. They can't be banned or reasoned with. If they don't have their trip, their posts will lose 90% of their shitposting weight. There has recently been a surge of drama on /a/ especially, revolving around several of them. Don't say just filter them, as entire threads are lost to their nonsense, rendering it useless, and to top it off, that's basically stuffing your fingers in your ear and yelling that you can't hear someone.

Discuss this and I'll back it up.
/union/ - a new way to use 4chan

4chan client dev here.
I'm proposing a new way to use 4chan, via a meta-board, which I'm calling /union/. This board /union/ isn't actually its own board, just a view to the whole site which acts like a board. What it does is take the union of all threads across all boards, applying the same thread page limit so you only see the most recent threads.
This would be something like hyper-/b/ since it would be even more active than /b/. Now, you wouldn't be allowed to start a new thread on this board - no wait, actually you would except you would have to specify the "board" you want to post along with the thread. Then it actually goes to that board as a new thread but you see it in /union/ as well. Posting replies would be done normally as in a regular board.
Now I can implement this in the client, it's a little inefficient because I have to query page or catalog from all boards and put them together. A better use of resources would be to have a site somewhere which is querying 4chan every 10 seconds for all boards catalog.json then collating together into /union/catalog.json. 4chan could add this to their API would would be the best way of doing this, but that's up to moot.
I'd like to see this myself so I'm going to implement it in an upcoming android client. If anyone else would like to see it or has other interesting "boardhashing" ways of using the existing API let me know and I'll try to incorporate it into the beta release.
