I know it's anime related
but at face value /a/ is just the worst board next to /b/.
I guess it just goes to show how bad anime is with it's endless waifu/fetish/otaku pandering. Yes I know it's not all of /a/, actually what little there is to save /a/ are current on-going series, that have something to discuss, other than expressing their affectionness towards the people in the show.
And don't give that crap, that threads are actually decent if you go into them:
First of all it's still incredibly obnxoious, it's like tolerating retards and then see if they might get tired of being retards
Second, they are just full of this girls>this girl, pumping semen through someone, and just affectionness and similar shit.
And I have low standards towards for a board being fine.
What needs to be done:
Stricter moderating on which series get generals actually are allowed
What the OP actually contains, everything can't just be let go with a lewd picture, something do with a affection of a girl, and just let it go on with 500 posts
or just a new board in general.
the mentality is poor, and not everyone who like anime can really get with it
They are essentially acting snobby and elite, be presumptions, yet at the same time don't really have anything to back it, with being extremly primitive all the time with all their threads and all their little memes and categorizations.
I think /a/ would improve if they realize that they aren't the only anime board out there.
What should be retro

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.

The elitism in /a/ is starting to stop people from posting about anime at all.
In every thread where an anime is adapted from a manga (or even an LN or VN, which aren't even supposed to be discussed on /a/), people who read the source material will come into anime threads, and start shitposting and posting spoilers all over the place and rubbing their elitist cocks over anyone who tries to have a discussion separate from the source material. This shit is most prevalent in Attack on Titan threads, where you can't read five posts without a major plot point being spoiled, and it needs to stop.
It's only a problem with shitty communities too. I mean, Madokafags STILL spoiler tag their shit most of the time after their anime aired almost two years ago, yet OreImo and SnK spoilers are blatantly posted as thread starters.
tl;dr: Mods need to start enforcing the spoiler tag rule on /a/.
The increase of CP on /b/ in recent months

I have noticed with alarm and disappointment the increase of child pornography on /b/ in recent months. I attribute this mainly to the whole FBI-taking-over-Tor shenanigans that went on over the summer. Paedophiles aren't getting their regular fix, so a few have decided to unleash their links, images, and general pro-pedo ideas on /b/
For the most part, the mods do a good job. Anti-CP moderation is a lot more effective and efficient than it was about 4-5 years ago. One big thing contributing to this problem is the new auto-refresh feature of 4chan. Even if a post if deleted, it can still be viewed as long as your browser window was open, in effect rendering deletion inefficient at solving the problem.
Even if these guys are not posting explicit CP images, they are contributing in other ways, like posting borderline/JB things. I understand it's hard to fix this, so what I suggest is a zero-tolerance policy on anything underage related. Oftentimes a picture of an 8 year old girl in a sultry pose will stay up and not get deleted by janitors. This IMO sends out the wrong message, that's it's OK as long as you don't go too far. But it's havng the opposite effect. The dissemination of these borderline-images are, I think, part of a movement of sorts, which is propogated by pedos and pedo apologist, with the intent of self-validation, self-worth, and encouraging the community to think CP isn't such a bad crime after all. The intent, whether overt or without knowledge, is to change people's views on CP. I'm asking m00t and /b/ mods to think of the wider implications of this type of material being allowed to stay on /b/.
