“…Many of today's problems are a result of yesterday's solutions.” - Otamin
The teen philosophy of "fuck da jan man" which dictates posters be free to post whatever and encourages conflict to strengthen the userbase is obviously a functional one. Lately its come under fire from teens abroad, but we've held the tide back. However, it doesn't matter how many times we blow them the fuck out when they just won't accept anything that doesn't agree with their narrative. I propose that we further refine our position in this thread to make the stance completely ironclad. I'll open with what I think is the biggest problem with jannies today:
They always apply their biases to their rules and twist them to mean whatever they want them to mean. This in turn leads to extreme subjectivity and inconsistency with moderation enforcement actions. Usually it comes down to them deleting things they don't like simply because they don't like it. In other cases they will hide or delete criticism to protect themselves. It always results in either alienating the users or better yet becoming the very thing they complain about! A personality board. What's more is that they completely lack the self awareness needed to understand how out of touch they've become, resulting in further detachment from everyone. Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It doesn't help that the users who've stuck around long enough go along with it like nothing is out of the ordinary. They end up completely turning into a cargo cult
Have you been so abused that you cannot even express your own argument in words? Are your feelings towards jannies so fearful and deeply rooted that you do not dare touch them lest you be made into an example?
I understand. I pity you, truly. Life has not allowed you to express critical thought for so long that you've become inept and unable to do so.
Shared public mod account? Or perhaps a bot (email/IRC) that sends a email or /msg that contains your personal janny account? (this way the mod access could be revoked) Also, you could use https://git.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/mkproof and/or https://git.sr.ht/~tomleb/mkproof-proxy as anti-bot/anti-abuse system.
>Self moderation or just ignoring posts you don't like is probably the best solution. It was brought up a couple times for a pipe dream imageboard concept where the poster can either filter everyone they don't like or subscribe to community created janny lists. No longer would they have to rely on some arbiter of content. That'll never happen without someone willing to code it unfortunately.
> subscribe to community created janny lists.
Could this be also implemented as a browser extension or ublock origin block list?
>ublock origin block list
This would be alright, but there are some issues. You wouldn't be able to ban by IP without it being publicly exposed. You could use a hash of the IP, but you would force boards to have public IDs in that case. Of course, this only means more work, so it's not impossible, just inconvenient. The other thing is illegal content. Having anyone able to delete anything pretty much covers that, but if it's only done with ublock, you're still technically hosting illegal content, and you'd need the server admin to take care of that. At that point, between the nuisance of cleaning up spam, and the need for jannies anyway, I don't see a way to do it that would actually be convenient ie, for a lazy fuck
honestly speaking, I would say jannies should be curtailed in every aspect except they'll have one power; turning on the captcha, and turning off the captcha should spam wave occur. I would also rather globals didn't exist, but gay laws on illegal pixels exist so what can you do about those and why feds are fine with them getting an eyeful of illegal pixels but nod you is its own barrel of monkies, but it does show the judicial system is breddy bad in this country either way.
The """"BO""" of a board should not exist in the case of imageboards wherein the admin retains sole power of board creation, but on imageboards wherein users are allowed to create their own boards, then I suppose it's inevitable that said board will be run based on BO's whims, unless a cuhrayzee system is developed wherein a user is allowed to make a board but then is only allowed to do things with it like modify CSS, control captcha powers, etc. etc. everything EXCEPT being allowed to delete anything at all. Users must be allowed to decide that on their own via the "hide" button.
The downside is that users will be afflicted by nasty things like monkey genitals from mentally ill individuals prior to hitting that hide button, but what can you do, something has to give for janny faggotry to be killed forever.
microblogging will destroy the earth
when it's the right time to post the flan but you forgot to post the flan

The games get harder and harder to read visually. Soon, background, background effects, bullets, enemies, PC and PC bullets will all blend together and we will play 2hu for a kaleidoscopic experience.
>Implying that that's a problem.
it seems to me to be less of a problem in UM, but we will have to see
I always hated this video because it's not actually properly synched to the beat
So /monster/ started playing this browser game again about running your own nation. Last time /monster/ played it, they managed to rank 1st for most average WA endorsements worldwide and hold that position for several months.
We're crashing the party! Already got our own nation set up lads. Can't wait to run it into the ground because these political things are usually biased towards leftist policies. Ironically, I'm also terrible at grand strategy games. I could use your help and advice to take our fledgling nation to new heights.

fug u dodd :DD
How do /cow/fags feel about their new president?
He wouldn't be able to solve the captcha either.
>put captcha at the white house door
/cow/ are a bunch of dup btfoers, they're probably glad to be ridin' with biden.
Why wouldn't they support a fellow pedophile?
Why this type of trickery, A captcha that tests my patience and involves _brainstorming_. A captcha shouldn't take 30 seconds to solve
>he can't into chess
>A captcha shouldn't take 30 seconds to solve
How did you manage to complete it in under 2 minutes?.
haha, little horse goes brrr
Reminder that being unable to solve the captcha means you have brain damage.
Since you're a frog poster, Your posts have no value.
Give me a good reason to and maybe I'll consider it.
Sleep tight chen.
Making this thread because of /a/'s unfortunate demise. This seems to be the season of good sequels. Are you looking forward to anything? Would all 3 of you be interested in watching seasonal streams?
didn't even know it was going until it was too late
Since /animu/ is ded again I'd figure I go over shows I've seen this season here.
SK8: Started off okay but my homodar went off after about 10 minutes. I don't think I'll continue it.
Cells at work/Black: Original series remains wholesome but both of them are getting rather repetitive. Kidney stone episode made me uncomfortable. Surprisingly the main series was cut down to 8 episodes, while the spinoff was given a full season.
Shingeki no Kyojin: I'm only watching this because I want to see how retarded it gets.
Higurashi: I'm only halfway through but I don't really understand the appeal of yet another time loop premise. It works in VNs but not so much when it's adapted, where it gets stale rather quickly.
Dr. Stone: Only show I look forward to each week other than One Piece ;^)
Mushoku Tensei was much better than I expected from Otaku Wish Fulfillment: The Series, it helps that Rudy actually has to learn things and is slowly learning to not be a shitty otaku
Mewkle continued to be gold this season but the formula is getting stale after 40+ episodes, S2 will probably fuck it all up somehow with by bringing back the crossdressing or smth
hataraku was good as usual but the minions were fucking gay, probably why it got axed after 8 eps
hataraku blackpill was better despite being yet more despair, big titty WBC and mesu platelets helped, last episode is "Demise" so it's probably going to be stay a 1cour even though the manga has more to adapt
Redo of Edgelord is mediocre but gets carried by being the only show with the balls to show sexy time and not hide it behind the BD
thanks for coming to my TED talk
