crosslinking NSFW shit on SFW boards
7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
So let's assume there is a doujinshi for a major character of some Japanimu, and I want to post it. But since it's NSFW, I can get banned for it if I post it on /a/ because of the whole blue board shenanigans.
Would it be acceptable to make a thread of said doujinshi in, say, /h/, and then crosslink it to whatever relevant thread in /a/?
e.g. an SnK doujin, I make a thread about it in /h/, and then post the links of the /h/ thread in the SnK thread in /a/.
And would this apply to other boards? For instance, /m/.
/y/ vs /u/ on /a/

I can't take it, I can't take it anymore, this is worse than console wars, landwhales vs purefags on Free threads, Sakura trick threads, they just spam and shitpost derailing the threads with words like:
>someone is actually watching this gay show?
>x is pure but y no
>[insert sexual orientation]goggles
>they aren't actually gay, just friends
A certain anon spams everyday:
>"no one wants to watch 12 episodes of cute girls making out/cuddling under sheets."
I've seen the word
on Stella C3-bu threads
on Yuru yuri or Kiniro mosaic threads
I know we can't get an agreement, but we need more janitors or someone else to clean these threads from trolls.
How to save /v/?
24 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1327416528164.jpg]
Something needs to be done about /v/. The post quality is absolute shit. There are troll threads that have been made a million times before ("Why is this allowed?" "/v/ hates X now, what happened?" "Why are western devs so terrible?" etc) and they still get 500 posts every single time. It seems like most posters are either new or retarded, and for some reason /v/ seems to attract both. What could be done to fix this? Or we don't even need to fix it, but we just need a place to discuss video games in peace. And don't say /vg/, because the discussion there is very limited, it's always the same 10-20 games and there's not even discussion in most of them, just circlejerking (see: ksg). Please, please help, /v/ has never been shittier. Reporting doesn't even work, because the amount of activity in the board is crazy, and the amount of mods/janitors isn't nearly enough to delete all the shit posts. I'm really starting to think that making a completely new board exclusively for video games with much more strict rules is the only solution.
tldr; How to save /v/?
/pol/ containment idea

I understand the point of /pol/, keep all the dumbfuck racists from shitting up the other boards. But the ignorance there is starting to emanate to all the other boards on 4chan. I have a way we can keep them locked down in /pol/ and stop them from spreading there propaganda to other boards.
Go ahead and keep /pol/ for now, let them keep posting racist/antisemitic bullshit, but on ALL the other boards start issuing bans for racist/antisemitic or extremely right wing posts. 3 day ban as a first warning, 2 week ban as a second warning, and then finally a lifetime ban the third time they engage in it. A three strikes you're out policy. On Reddit we have the downvote system to weed out ignorant shitposters, but there is no defense mechanism like that here so every board quickly gets overrun with right wing extremist bullshit, and they can just keep bumping it again and again and again.
If we had some basic standards here the site would get way more traffic (see more profitable), but as it is now anyone with even half a brain is quickly alienated and seeks out other sites. I hardly ever even come here anymore now, which is a shame since it has the potential to be a really great site.

Degeneracy, Fedora, and Redpill

I would like to draw our collective attention the issue of the words 'degeneracy', 'fedora' and 'redpill' on /pol/.
First off, Every other thread has become like the one in the pic. "Redpill me on UFOs, /pol/" threads have gotten fucking tedious, and do nothing but attract whacked-out nutjobs.
Second off, the words 'degeneracy' and 'fedora' have made the board unreadable. When anyone dislikes something because it hurts their feelings, they shout 'degeneracy', as if that were some sort of valid argument. And when that doesn't work, they call the other side of the argument an "edgy fedora-wearing atheist from reddit."
It's maddening, and honestly, it's gone too far. I'd like to request that the mods either filter these words or make them into autobans, or at least auto-warnings. Maybe a 3-strikes you're out rule? I don't know. This has become a problem. Help us, mods, You're our only hope.

An optional 'I have been banned' message for those insta-banned from boards using ID's
6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: I have no mouth and I must scream.jpg]
I'd like to recommend a feature regarding bans.
Twice in this one week I have been banned, both for a span of one day, for posting a banned link. Both times I had posted several links earlier, without being banned. I approve of banning banworthy links, but it did leave me with a sour aftertaste in my mouth. I was an active participant in both threads and in both occasions being banned left me with an 'I have no mouth and I must scream' feeling and left the other participants making posts amounting to 'please respond'. It looked like I had left in a huff or for no good reason at all. I desperately wanted to be able to tell them that I had been banned.
At first I wanted to recommend a feature that would serve as a warning system. It would warn you, before posting your post, that your message contained a bannable link. However, I quickly realized that, although it would fix MY problem, it would also give spammers and shitposters a heads up to replace dots in their links with 'dot', for instance. In essence this feature would undermine the very practice of banning people for bannable links.
I have however come up with another solution to my particular issue (one that I can only imagine has bothered numerous others as well).
Insta-banned users should optionally be able to post one standardized message (in the thread they were trying to post in) along the lines of "I have been banned".
The button could be placed on the 'you have been banned' screen. Though this won't prevent you from being banned, it also won't give spammers a heads up. It would however allow for any accidental offender to ease their feelings of powerlessness and let the other expecting posters know what happened. This feature would of course only work on boards using IDs, but even /b/ has constructive threads and I imagine it would ease a lot of suddenly restless and powerless hearts.
I'd love to hear what others think of my recommendation and I'd love to see it implemented even more. Thoughts?
Get rid of /r9k/'s bot script.

Get rid of /r9k/'s bot script.
Before when /r9k/ was a sub-board of /b/, it was probably a neat idea to limit the spam. Now /r9k/ has it's own theme, and I think it's only appropriate that the script be removed now because it doesn't serve any point now. It's not hard to avoid, but it does become an annoyance when I can't post some simple messages. I don't like the restraint it has, considering sometimes I have to "test" messages.
Please consider it, thanks.
