What a nice board!
READ THE RULES https://zzzchan.xyz/v/custompage/rules.html
Check this thread out >>>/vhs/6
By the word of the lawman himself,
>Regarding meta threads: you shouldn't post in this one since I rarely read /meta/ as it's really meant for bugs, improvements and other shit Sturgeon is meant to take care of, not board meta. Meta threads on /v/ aren't and were never meant to be banned or taboo, anyone is free to make one at any time if there isn't one already as long as the issue at hand is of greater calamity than (nothing important)
Ergo, we will be moving here.
1.Please move the bump limit. By the time a thread hits page 11 its already a month old which means there's literally no difference between rule 4 before you changed it and now.
2.Why do the two mods here have such different views on moderation? You can get banned or have your reports dismissed depending on who sees them. Make the rules solid.
3.My penis is hard.
USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST vulgar display in public
FIRST TO SAY NIGGER
Agree fully with discussion 1. I would make the limit page 6 + bumplock before a new thread can be made.
I also think ideally meta threads should be on a different board so they don't attract dramafaggotry to the main board.
REMOVE MODS, ANARCHY NOW
i think mods have been doing fine, keep it how it is. again, a little bit faster would always be nice but I can live with this
As was said in the /meta/ thread, seagull, off-board meta discussion only exists so jannies can move criticism of themselves where the board won't see it. This happened on /q/, /qa/, /ameta/, /vmeta/, /meta/, /operate/, and so on. This means the only way to get janny's attention for real is to do something retarded like wipe the catalog which will have massive collateral damage.
Of course the flip side is that meta threads are by nature a massive target for gayops, but what's the alternative?
the alternative is banning people like you for shitting up the board
>3.My penis is hard.
My penis is harder than yours.
Then I'm reposting this shit from /meta/ for all to see. Even though this thread will probably be filled with shitposting and locked.
Threads get bumplocked and then get stuck in the middle of the catalog for many weeks, wasting a big chunk of potential discussion because people don't see new posts and thus won't reply. And don't give me this "just go down the catalog" shit, if you think about it for 7 and a half seconds, you'll realize that there's no way for people to know when someone posts something on that thread without either specifically checking that thread over and over and over just in case someone posted or by memorizing every thread's post number. Nobody wants to do that shit, that's why thread bumping was invented in the first place.
>but muh catalog will fill with repeated threads
So fucking what. You're basically using problems with the IB software and moderation inconvenience and ancient months old threads (that would be replaced by the new thread) as reasons to reduce board activity. Nobody cares if a thread at the back of the catalog that nobody has replied to in 3 months gets deleted in favor of a new thread about a topic that was popular enough to reach bump limit. The difference between a bump limit and post limit right now is 50 posts, if you removed that (or allowed new threads immediately at bump limit) then the only reason the board would "fill up with threads" any more than currently is because people would actually notice discussions and participate in them properly instead of having threads rot at the back of the woods somewhere. In "slow" boards like this, it is completely viable to use the board by refreshing the index page and never go to the catalog, I've heard numerous times that people browse boards that way, and I do it sometimes too because I want to join active discussions that happen where ever they happen to happen.
This is, in my opinion, one of the foremost mistakes that imageboards make. I recall in 8chan the activity in /agdg/ always plummeted as soon as the thread got bumplocked, what exactly is the benefit of this? Assume there's no problems with the catalog filling up or whatever, why would you argue in favor of this? You fucking wouldn't.
The idea of abandoning old threads is fine since you get a new OP which helps the topic feel fresh, but the only thing bump limits accomplish is making discussion harder for others see. In an ideal world the transition to a new thread should be instant, seamless, and the current thread would never stop being bumped.
>what is the point of a bumplock?
There is none, it's a leftover from 4chan which has had it since time immemorial and nobody ever bothered to think about it since. Bumplocking and bump limits function as a replacement to having pages on the thread like normal forums do, you need one or the other or else the thread bloats until it lags up your browser. Bumplocking itself works as a soft-lock, you can phase out the thread without abruptly locking it entirely, so people have time to migrate and post links to the new thread and don't necessarily have to reply to people across threads.
The primary problem with bumplocking however is as mentioned; there's a time period where nobody outside of the thread can see when a new post appears, and thus won't respond to any discussion or questions until the original poster has most likely already left the thread. This was never a problem in 4chan since it's so fast that threads get deleted shortly after bumplocking, but it becomes a problem in slower imageboards like these where threads get stuck in the middle of the catalog for literally weeks or even months.
To be clear I don't think bump limit itself is the problem, the problem is the rule that you can't create a new thread until some arbitrary extra milestone has been reached on top of the bump limit.
That's also compounded with the slower pace of these boards compared to what was on 4chan back in the day. Making a new thread ends up like stepping on eggshells because some dumb rulenigger will drive-by sage and shitpost unless you follow said practice to the letter.
Also a related but separate note on new thread creation:
>I think it's fine for a thread that hasn't been replied to in 2 months to be dropped from the catalog.
<But why drop threads at all when you can hold more?
>Because I think it's much easier to start a fresh discussion by making a new thread than it is by pulling up a stagnant year old thread from the bottom of the catalog and making a 376th reply to it.
If jschan had the feature, I would set threads to be locked or bumplocked if there hasn't been activity in 1-2 months or so. People are much more likely to check a new thread than a very old one that got bumped, it would foster more discussion if you were allowed to make a new thread than being forced to use a very old thread that's effectively already died.
Can you make a no niggers allowed, rule?
But then you wouldn't be able to post.
Neither would you.
>and other shit Sturgeon is meant to take care of
She's not content with only ruining Scotland?
Also there's no watchlist which means you can't quickly pull it up to see what threads have had replies. To be fair I think that's the board's software and not something that can be solved without a feature request.
fuck off shitting up the board is sacrosanct it's not a subreddit
I generally agree with this. We can talk all day about how people SHOULD continue posting in bumplocked threads, and how they SHOULD look through the whole catalog, but the fact is they just don't. If a topic is popular enough that people want to make another thread about it, I see little reason not to let them.
>This means the only way to get janny's attention for real is to do something retarded like wipe the catalog which will have massive collateral damage.
>ideally meta threads should be on a different board
Nah, that just hides them away from most of the userbase.
>>but muh catalog will fill with repeated threads
The catalog is already filled with way too many Friday night threads anyway. Doing something about that should be a bigger priority to anyone who cares about duplicate threads.
>board ate my image
fucking fish, fix your shit
I do believe the board size has been cut by half.
I was wrong, it just wasn't loading for some reason.
Can I make an alt-history of games thread.
Which pokemon would you fuck?
None in this way, but mostlikely female Gardevoir.
Because that what you've meant is trash and gay and shit, beastiality is gay as fuck. And maybe anthro femblaziken because of my old waifuism towards her, I hate it.
Yes, I would like to discuss this meta videogame issue. Is this correct avenue of dicsourse?

I'd rather fug a digimon or an SMT demon.
Alternate history of vidya, because why not?
Don't make me post it. Too late
Gross. Furffaggots deserve to be burned into ash.
You mean games that would exist in an alternate universe?
Alternative timelines to exact.
Too creative for me. I'm not a volunteer, but it sounds fine if you put some effort into it.
>every sometime has an opinion that differs, some lunatic keep mentioning luciano or 8moe poster every single time as it's only response
>some stupid fucking phone poster is in the fighting game thread
these gay things should be removed if you want things to improve
i have made around 20 threads and none of them were ever banned, you know why? I'm not a dumb nigger. All the people crying about rule cucking are from cucked moe, don't ever listen to them.
DWEEB ALERT DWEEB ALERT
Is it tranny to imagine yourself as a cute animu as you post?
Phone fag also goes to /geimu/ to bitch about moderation when he gets banned, I'd put money that he also goes to caked.moe and do the same.
The very definition.
No. In fact imaging every poster as a cute anime girl even when they are sperging makes it even funnier and way more tolerable.
Phonefag has also been discovered to be a nigger. Truly fitting.
Who are you talking about?
Thank you for expressing your crying, whining and rage on the meta thread over a phoneposter. Learn to filter and ignore.
But that isn't a cute anime girl, that's a nofun allowed whore.
Can't we have more catalog pages? /b/ has 16 instead of 12 pages.
Wow 4 additional pages of threads that have been inactive for over a month, can't wait!
But every thread is precious that needs to remain around as long as possible. Why else do you think people want a slow board? :^)
Sometimes I just can't let go
There's no reason you can't just make them active again by using the catalog and not being a indexfag.
>Bump month old thread
>Nobody remembers what was being argued because its a month old
>Nobody wants to read it either
>Thread dies again
People supporting rule 4 right now are quite possibly the most retarded people here.
Pretty much on par with the people who think a sub 1 PPH is somehow a good thing.
>Nobody remembers what was being argued because its a month old
>Nobody wants to read it either
>Implying all of the posts in a thread are correlated
>implying you have to read every single one of them to reply to a single post
>implying you can't start a new conversation even then
How does it feel to have the attention span of a 2 yo? Indexfags like you are the reason this board is slow.
>supporting rule 4
I'm not supporting the rule 4. I'm saying there's no reason you can't bump a thread that isn't even close to reaching the bump limit.
There are multiple, month old threads for you to post in, so you should pick a few to bump. Maybe if they generate good discussion I'll admit I'm wrong.
Inb4 this retard bumps half the catalog
The people who think pph and muh slow board is problematic are actually retarded.
nah man, it's you who are wrong, we should be more accepting and advertise on reddit, then the PP number will be big and everyone will be happy
Because a dead board is totally a good thing.
A noard filled with retards who sperg out and add nothing of value to the board are even worse. Which would you prefer, cuckchan or a slow board?
Except this discussion is about making the site more intuitive, not going to reddit and advertising here.
Are you unable to do anything except repeat past talking points?
>Except this discussion is about making the site more intuitive,
No shit, it's not like it's going to make it more active.
>not going to reddit and advertising here.
At this point, I'm convinced you faggots will actually do something like this, considering how much you bitch and moan about muh pph for every meta thread. It's one thing to want the board to be more active, but don't use pph as an argument it's retarded and getting annoying.
>Are you unable to do anything except repeat past talking points?
I haven't repeated this talking point nor posted on any of the previous boars. Also you shouldn't talk at all when you faggots kept using the same dumb arguments about how to stop the board from so-called being "dead".
I'd prefer people to make either threads or posts to talk about video games, not gather retards from elsewhere. Enough of this sacred ground bullshit with the catalog.
>I'd prefer people to make either threads or posts to talk about video games, not gather retards from elsewhere
Great, then there shouldn't be any complaining, because we've been doing that for the past months.
>not gather retards from elsewhere.
Cool I'm glad we agree, because that's the point I'm making.
Honestly I'm having trouble figuring out how you got here. If not for a literal african you might have been the dumbest person on this board currently.
>It's one thing to want the board to be more active, but don't use pph as an argument it's retarded and getting annoying.
People requested rule 4 to be changed so we could get the threads actually flowing. You can go to the /meta/ thread and see that.
You brought up PPH yourself, then whined that people were talking about PPH.
Actually upon checking your posts here, I think this is malicious. You're doing everything to create drama.
>Changed the topic to PPH
>Tries to somehow argue other people he wants to disagree with are recruiting from reddit
>Honestly I'm having trouble figuring out how you got here.
It's the struggle of having a nigger brain.
>If not for a literal african you might have been the dumbest person on this board currently.
Or your asshurt is getting to you on a personal level, because no but (You) is crying about stupid shit.
>You brought up PPH yourself,
I brought up pph because you negroids always use it as an excuse for pointless shit. The mention of pph came from someone else and when I shat on it you come along being low IQ.
>Actually upon checking your posts here, I think this is malicious. You're doing everything to create drama.
>NOOOOOOOO MUH DRAMA!
>NOOOOOOOO NOT THE ATTACKS
Jesus Christ you people are fucking children.
>Jesus Christ you people are fucking children.
Is this the power of a meta thread? Do I get the children just by posting or what? I want in on this.
Go back to 4chan.
You are the embodiment of wearing your heart on your sleeve. I hereby dub you sleevefag
I thought rule 4 was supposed to be changed after the last meta thread to allow new threads when they hit bump limit, was it not?
>You brought up PPH yourself, then whined that people were talking about PPH.
<his first post is a reply to some fag complaining about the rest of the board not being PPH addicted cuckchanners/cakeniggers/take your pick
Stop being a nigger please.
And as death and life are power of the tongue, sleevefag was born
Thankfully /agdg/ is falling down the catalog again right as someone started posting progress on his game, this makes the board so much better!
No, it was changed so you could post a new thread once the old one hit page 11, which only happens after a month.
<his first post is a reply to some fag complaining about the rest of the board not being PPH addicted cuckchanners/cakeniggers/take your pick
>IE: Not me or any of the other people who have been discussing this for weeks now
No. If you think this is "reasonable" you're retarded.
Yeah I was also interested in that but I guess now that it's bumplocked I can't read or reply to it anymore because of the strong psychic barriers erected by the bumplock symbol. Real shame.
I'm glad we agree that less people seeing discussions and less people seeing your OC and questions is good for the board.
Haven't been around for months. What's up?
People are arguing in favor of even less activity on the board. Something about quality, I guess.
Nothing, because people are more content to complain about quality in meta threads than try to make quality content.
all me tbh
Sometimes I wonder if people read super fucking slow and are justifying slow activity as a means to keep up. It doesn't take an hour to read even the most thorough posts or all the blogpost bullshit.
I did post high quality content, you just didn't notice it because you didn't go to page 5 to see if the reply counter of a thread that has been dead for weeks had increased.
What's the purpose of posts like this one when there are IDs on the board.
So what rule says it's okay to delete posts that some random nigger doesn't like? Essentially all I posted was "/v/ doesn't need loli porn to exist" yet my post gets deleted?
no, if you had read the original posts you would know that
If you weren't asking for it to be removed, the whole point of your post was to moralfag and stir drama arguing against a popular opinion. Hopefully you can now see why your post was deleted.
>he argued against a popular opinion therefore his post was bad and should be deleted
when the fuck did literal reddit get here
When you arrived lmao
seagull is a nigger, you're going to have to accept it or leave sadly
Hey, I am making quality content.
Just, uh. Not here.
>>Nobody remembers what was being argued because its a month old
Read the fucking thread.
>>Nobody wants to read it either
You're a nigger and the rules should not accommodate you.
No, you should do that because you're the one saying it's too hard. The problem is not that it's somehow impossible to use the catalogue, it's that you can't bear to scroll down it and find an interesting subject to discuss/revive.
>he actually thinks IDs do anything
They're a placebo for normalfags who don't understand how VPNs work.
>Why do the two mods here have such different views on moderation?
This is also something I want answered. I don't expect every shitpost to be cleaned up but the stuff I report is usually either outright retardation or one step removed from spam. If a spambot was posting "kill all liberals and impotent leftists" it'd be deleted immediately but because some BR nigger is autistic enough to do it himself, he somehow gets a pass?
I mentioned this on /meta/ several months ago and the response from pasta was that the "alleged Luciano" was the same as any other poster, so he got to stay. I'm genuinely startled that anyone could have used old 8chan/v/ and not noticed Luciano enough to be able to identify him.
Why is phoneposting not a bannable offense?
>No, you should do that because you're the one saying it's too hard
>If you think things work like this, then prove it
>No, if YOU think things don't work like this, then prove for me that it does work like this.
But back up a bit because this isn't even what we're discussing.
Rule 4 is about threads in the bump limit. BUMP LIMIT. That means posting in the thread won't bump it and most likely nobody will notice my post.
You obviously didn't read the thread so far, despite complaining that people should read dead, 1 month old threads.
Sturgeon can you come over? I am tired of arguing with actual retards.
What does sturgeon have to do with /v/ meta?
Nothing I'm tired.
Seagull can you come over, I am tired of arguing with actual retards.
>if you had read the original posts
Your original posts were awful. Nobody was arguing back because of Brandolini's law, and that made you feel superior.
Prime sperg behavior.
>I found a problem with the board
<you can solve that problem if you post differently
>oh really? prove it!
<you should try doing it yourself
This board isn't a science fair where we carefully measure out any modicum of activity into glass beakers and report back to the teacher to show how many drops of Quality Posting we encouraged over a given time period. Anything that guy would show whoever he was replying to would just be dismissed out of case as an anecdote or "not good enough" because this isn't the kind of thing that can be measured accurately.
>if I redtext loud enough the mod will hear me
Absolutely stunning. You should consider caps lock to increase the volume.
I'll try to be constructive here.
The issue regarding the bump/post limit seems to be based on how people interact with the board and how they want conversation to flow. One camp, as mentioned in >>45372, uses the index to browse the board and wants to reply to active discussion wherever it happens to be, regardless of what thread it's in. Let's call it "discussion-focused posting." That is, a user posts where the active discussion is because he finds that the most stimulating and enjoys getting replies quickly. He is not necessarily interested in making posts that will not engender some kind of discussion or activity, although that does not mean he never does it.
The other camp (and there are likely more than two camps) prefers using the catalogue and finding threads to post in that way. This type of user is more likely to read (most of) an entire thread before making a post, or at least reading more than what he would see if he were viewing a thread on the index. Let's call this type of posting "topic-focused posting." That is, a user posts in threads or about topics he finds interesting and doesn't care too much if he gets a reply quickly. Making the post and thinking about the topic is stimulating enough regardless of how many people actually read or care about what he has to say - although I'm sure he prefers getting replies and having the conversation continue just as much as everyone else.
To the discussion-focused posters, the catalogue may as well not exist past the first handful of pages. If a discussion isn't active, then it logically stands that the topic reached its natural conclusion. If people wanted to talk about it, they'd be talking about it, wouldn't they? I do understand that point of view, but it does have more than a little in common with the speed-addicted posting you'd find on places like cuckchan or social media, where a topic being older than 48 hours is grounds not only for dismissing it, but actively ridiculing it. It also weights visibility (which is a limited resource because only so many threads can fit on the index) in favour of threads that have high activity, for better or worse. A handful of shitposts would outweight a single good post in this system by bumping the shitposting thread to the top. This problem is exacerbated because only the first page of the index is visible without the user manually browsing to the next. If you vehemently dislike shitposting of any kind, this is a big problem with the index view.
To the topic-focused posters, the index is a bizarre relic from a bygone time: if a user is connecting via dial-up, then loading a 200-post thread would take a long time. Doing so only to see a couple new posts (which may not have been very interesting in the first place) could be a colossal waste of bandwidth and time. But these days everyone has fast internet connections that can load large pages of basic HTML and media files quickly. Therefore, there is nothing preventing people from using the catalogue to find threads they find interesting and manually reading through them. The catalogue is also weighted in favour of high-traffic posting and shitposting, but this is somewhat mitigated because the catalogue shows every thread on the board if you scroll down and because you don't get to see the content of a post until you open the thread. There's no cliff's notes version that you see in the index.
Personally, I prefer using the catalogue and I think having 3-5 tabs open in a web browser is a small price to pay for monitoring activity on a board. I follow threads because I'm interested in the topic more than the speed of replies. Obviously active discussion is better, but I don't consider it to be more important than the topic actually being discussed.
If we wanted to harmonize these viewpoints regarding the bump/post limit on threads, I think there are some ways we could do so.
>Make the bump limit and the reply limit the same.
This means that an active discussion that reaches the bump limit would be forced to continue in a new thread, although it would no doubt be jarring to people in the thread who weren't paying close attention to the number of posts. I think this will likely lead to more than a few lost posts when several people try to post at once in a thread with one reply left. A discussion that is winding down would also be forced to go elsewhere, and may not justify making a new thread just to have people replying to posts in the old ones before the conversation naturally ends.
>Make the difference between the bump limit and the reply limit smaller; say, 20 posts instead of the current 50.
This would give people enough time to realize the thread was no longer bubbling to the top of the catalogue, but allow the end of a discussion to wind down organically. Remember, a bumplocked thread is still visible on the index until it slides off. If scrolling down to the bottom of the index's first page is too much to ask, then you're too dumb to be on the internet.
>Tell people to post in older threads and be more proactive about bumping threads they like by making good posts.
This is the common practice on other slow boards like /tg/, and has worked well for them. However, it also requires everyone on the board to have roughly the same disposition and an IQ greater than 110, so it may not be a good fit for /v/.
>Invent some new solution like we did with the captchas.
We've seen tried-and-true solutions not be good fits for the modern internet experience, especially with the old format of an image board. I don't think this is necessarily a bad idea, but it may be throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
>uses the index to browse the board
Why would anyone do that?
>having 3-5 tabs open
I have 27 tabs open here
>Make the difference between the bump limit and the reply limit smaller
This is the most sensible of those options.
I knew this was retarded. Imagine arguing (And I use that term loosely) against someone only to advocate for the same things they do.
I mean you did make a feeble attempt to justify some solutions as better by making a enormous post about why the way you use the board is better and marks you as a oldfag, and this:
>although it would no doubt be jarring to people in the thread who weren't paying close attention to the number of posts
>I think this will likely lead to more than a few lost posts when several people try to post at once in a thread with one reply left
Which are minor problems. Nitpicking.
I can't possibly imagine someone being such a massive waste of time and not realizing why someone would want to talk with someone who's actually important instead of you.

Oh come on, it was just a meme. He might not necessarily browse tvch. But I doubt it.
Old things should be thrown away.
Lets just kill this retarded discussion here.
>CTRL+F the catalog for R:450
Ergo, literally not a single thread in the past 1 month and half (This is the rough age of >>38821 , the newest post on the last thread of the catalog) has hit 450 posts.
This rule makes no sense within this board. Change it.
Are you being retarded on purpose? The rule isn't 450 anymore, it's 400.
Unless I missed a post the board owner has not said anything. In which case, I direct you to https://zzzchan.xyz/v/custompage/rules.html
>Unless I missed a post
Also I am assuming that post limit threads get deleted eventually, since I know the Vintage Story thread has reached the post limit less than a month ago, since the OP says
>Hey it's another thread because the last one hit reply limit.
Read the post you linked to very carefully.
>it is completely viable to use the board by refreshing the index page and never go to the catalog
Nobody should do this. Though I agree mostly. Just make the bump limit 440. If the catalog gets filled with repeated threads just archive the bumplocked thread, post the link in the new thread and delete the old thread.
>Nobody should do this
Go to the index and see how old the newest post on the last thread is. That's how often you need to refresh the index to basically see all the activity on this board (except bumplocked threads).
You could also check old threads.
>there are subhumans who actually do this
Bumplocked thread are shit and no one wants to in them otherwise everyone would post in them. My solution is to automatically delete threads at 150 posts so every thread feels fresh. This will work fine because we only have like 6 posters.
I'd be fine with that.
>if a thread isn't literally filled to the brim with replies then it was cut down in the prime of its life
Are you the false flag?
Upvoted for visibility.
I don't know what the hell you're implying here so I'm going to assume you just IP hopped.
In any case you're still retarded.
So, wait, is the sperg just mad that certain threads won't pop up to the front page if he posts in them? Just, like, look for topics you want to discuss (ctrl+f in the catalogue) and reply to shit, who cares which page it lands on? And if it doesn't exist after ctrl+f make your own thread.
>dude just post in threads no one else will pay attention to or know you're posting in
If I wanted to write to no one I'd just do it in a text document instead of going on an website.
It's a battle between the "what anons should do" group and the "what anons actually do" group. Unfortunately, doing an entire lecture about how you should just post on page 10 bumplocked threads normally means nothing if fucking no one does it regardless.
Yeah I mean it'd be hypocritical of me to chastise anon for being lazy but just because I know my habits are bad doesn't mean I can't recognize what the right thing is.
The only bumplocked threads in the catalog that don't have a new thread are
MMO - past page 11 so you can make a new thread
SS13 - last post 4/2
Fightan - last post 4/3
/agdg/ - last post 4/6
Emulation - last post 4/6
Where is this mythical thread that you can't post in because nobody will reply?
Sorry MMO does have a new thread already, I missed it. So that's 4 threads that you are afraid to post in because they are bumplocked, and all have had posts in the last week.
My guess is it's a holdover from imageboard use on fast boards from before the catalog was a thing, when only threads on the first few pages had any posts. I myself don't see the value of the catalog except for maybe going to find an old thread I was interested in following that happens to be bumplocked.
It's funny because back in the day anons would just have a bunch of windows/tabs open for the threads they were following, which made refreshing the front page irrelevant. Some enterprising anons had more creative tracking methods but that's what the average smoothbrain did.
>It's funny because back in the day anons would just have a bunch of windows/tabs open for the threads they were following
That's what I do, I dunno why everyone doesn't do that. The tab even updates when there's a new post so you don't have to refresh.
That's not an argument against the point being made, that threads past bumplock don't get activity. The quantity of bumplocked threads is completely irrelevant, I don't even know why you brought it up.
>threads past bumplock don't get activity
>even though I just told you they all do
The rule is broken on the regular and several new threads didn't give a shit whether the old one was "old enough".
Most of what you've listed are threads that very recently became bumplocked. The MMO thread didn't receive any posts for weeks until I went out of my way to defy the currently in place rules to make a new thread long before it got to where it was now. You're just wrong that bumplocked threads continue to see activity beyond hitting their bumplocked state. Sure it might take a week for the activity to fall off, but it inevitably does and there's no justification for killing thread activity like that. You're an idiot.
Only 4 days passed since the last post and the new thread.
>MMO - past page 11 so you can make a new thread
Last post was in 3/12, meaning this thread was dead for almost half a month before it could get a new thread.
>SS13 - last post 4/2
Last post is a attempt to create discussion of Goon which didn't generate any additional replies, probably because nobody saw it.
>Fightan - last post 4/3
Last post is a argument that ended due to the bumplock. Thread is still generally more active than this.
What a beautiful sight. So many threads are still active despite their bumplocks.
Reply to the rest of the post will you.
>Last post was in 3/12, meaning this thread was dead for almost half a month before it could get a new thread.
It seems that this thread actually just made a thread 4 days later, completely ignoring rule 4. I guess that's why its still alive.
Yes, you figured it out. The reason this retarded rule isn't as bad in practice is because it's broken constantly and not even the moderation gives a shit. At least 4 active recurring threads broke this rule, but surely more since some bumplocked threads died since they were made and you can't tell.
The rule goes against the nature of how anons post, but no matter how much practical evidence there is against it, the "ACKSHUALLY" type posters who defend this rule don't care and will endlessly parrot this pipe dream of how everyone should post, and no one will ever follow it.
I personally just find funny how some anons will refuse to post on a thread because It won't show up in page 1 no more.
That's not a problem. The problem is when it's on page 7/8/9/10 and making a post in the thread will yield no attention, and the only other option to let the thread die, which is weeks of downtime on the discussion. Of course, this doesn't really matter if you don't give a shit and break the rule like it should be.
What are some bumplocked threads you've replied to?
>>he actually thinks IDs do anything
Work yourself up to (41) and we'll teach you how you're wrong.
You're right. Fuck nigger mods, I'm going to remake bumplocked threads whenever I want.
<he actually thinks IDs do anything
You can filters faggots
I was gonna write an xbox hueg wall of text merely pretending to be retarded but I got extremely near the end and decided against it, mostly because I knew somebody would take it seriously. What follows, instead, is a very professional, well composed reply from a very seasoned veteran, high profile, top class expert janitor.
>1.Please move the bump limit. By the time a thread hits page 11 its already a month old which means there's literally no difference between rule 4 before you changed it and now.
>2.Why do the two mods here have such different views on moderation?
Seagull and I appear to take slightly different approaches, though we have already"discussed" the matter (read: I said something along the lines of "dude, chill, wtf") on separate occasions, and any inconsistency should've been less prevalent, I suppose it wasn't enough.
>You can get banned or have your reports dismissed depending on who sees them.
You're gonna have to point out some instances where this kind of shit in particular happened, because if my gut's right it's something that we already talked about on our official secret discord where we post pics of our programming stockings and share saucy images of cheese pizza. Either way I'll talk to seagull about it.
>3.My penis is hard.
Ah, at last you reveal your true nature. Absolutely disgusting. Enjoy your ban.
>I also think ideally meta threads should be on a different board so they don't attract dramafaggotry to the main board.
Nah, it's cool.
>As was said in the /meta/ thread, seagull, off-board meta discussion only exists so jannies can move criticism of themselves where the board won't see it.
Whatever you say faggot. I, or any of the other mods for that matter, didn't move anything anywhere.
I don't know what that even means but sure.
Steelix or Geodude.
I don't see the point, apparently people have a hard time looking past page 1, let alone 12.
>So what rule says it's okay to delete posts that some random nigger doesn't like? Essentially all I posted was "/v/ doesn't need loli porn to exist" yet my post gets deleted?
None of them, see my first reply.
Bark if I forgot something.
OH wait I get it.
Forget this happened.
>Nah, it's cool.
No it's not. Move the thread to a meta board. It's 24/7 shitflinging and infighting that takes away from actual game discussion. People could be discussing games in some thread but since they're retarded they'd rather be here sharing their completely important hot takes on rules and other meta shit. Look at me, even I'm here. There hasn't been a single board on any website not instantly ruined by a meta thread.
Also add refresh button to catalog.
F5 you dimwit.
Just like, hide it.
>Also add refresh button to catalog.
Ask Tom, I'm not Tom.
/v/ is literally ruined, this is the worst thing that has ever happened to this board. Time to abandon ship and migrate again, what's a good /v/ alternative that lets threads stay at the bottom of the catalog as god intended?
Make sure you update the rules page to clarify what the numbers are now.
Hopefully 300 bump limit and 450 post limit. Threads need more time to ferment away from the front page.
Why does when you save the webpage on this site, even if images are expanded only thumbs are saved in the folder? It's extremely annoying. Please fix.
go back to cuckchan
Seems like a JSchan problem rather than a /v/ problem. You should talk to Tom on /meta/ or GitGud about that.
Keep up the good work.
Now both the reply and bump limits are set to 450
holy fuck, mods are doing something right for once thank you
Just use channel changer.
Bump limit confirmed for archaic nonsense.
Thank you. Unironically.
Now post feet.
Now thats the fuckin stuff.
remove bumplock from fightan thread
just make a new one
y-you're still a faggot though
One of the Dulce Report manga I think.
>dickgirl on dickgirl
>changed bumplimit settings
>suddenly more posts and posters
rly makes u think
fuck you saying, slut?
We barely got over a dozen posts yesterday.
>thought the anon said sargon for some reason
what is wrong with me
You banned the onion address stupid bird.
>Seagull and I appear to take slightly different approaches, though we have already"discussed" the matter (read: I said something along the lines of "dude, chill, wtf")
>Not the other way around
I wouldn't say /v/ is ruined, but sturgeon's laissez-faire approach has effectively killed /b/. As of now, the board has been nothing but some mouthbreather on his epic crusade to call out every post with an animu grill with >pedo and >trannime and attaching Youtube memes to his posts. To make matters worse, faggots have been replying to him so he now has the incentive to make people mad until mommy says it's bedtime, because the board goes silent from 20:00 UTC onwards. He has admitted to only lurking from Zchan onwards, the absolute newfag.
Had no idea such a beast exists. Usually jewtube users perpetuate memes created elsewhere, usually cuckchan; there are channels that go as far as posting screencaps from there and reading them out loud in the video. And earn money from this.
I dunno, I kind of like making fun of him, regardless of whether he's serious or baiting.
I mean come on, it's /b/, the shitpost abyss.
>Who is sturgeon
Wow a newfag!
It's you, do you realise that you can get banned here?
Then why is >he posting the exact same images here as you did in the /b/ thread?
>Who is sturgeon
Judging by the state of the boards nobody.
Check the logs. Here you have something from /b/
what state of what boards exactly? other than some newfag crying children all I see is some shitstirring drama niggers like (you) trying their best to make a nothingburger into a colossal artificial storm. I have a suggestion, why don't you just die instead?
At least half of the posts made on /v/ today were made by a single glownigger replying to himself. Go clean up this mess, hotpocket man.
Wow, nice one IP hopper. Go kill yourself.
why do I find this pic arousing
what have you done to me
Given mods are most likely to read this thread than >>>/meta/, I was wondering why browsing in TOR defaults to the clearnet website even when I'm using the TOR url. In case it's happening to everyone here, please fix it.
Sturgeon is aware and either trying to fix it or can't. Bug reports should be done on meta, fish reads it even if bird doesn't.
But /v/ mods can't fix your issue since its a coder thing. You should ask in /meta/
Well, not this particular issue though, because Sturgeon is aware.
"Coder things" are mostly up to the engine developer, which means you should go ask in fatchan.
It never used google captcha, they didn't go through with it. It used the cuckflare one.
>replying to the retard
Come to think, he may be a glowie. He posts about >cuckime as much as he posts about TOR being compromised. Must mean something.
Then he is a fucking RETARDED glownigger. As I've said many times, if you won't react then he can't do nothing else then sperg out like a chimpanzee.
Not reacting doesn't work when the goal isn't to harvest replies but to flood the front page with shit and/or take lots of screenshots of your replies to yourself for the next fake mass shooting. Bans don't work because any dedicated shitposter is using Tor or changing its IP every 30 seconds anyway. The only things that slow down gayoppers/glowniggers like /cattle/ are chess and the mods F5ing like madmen to janny every single one of their shitty bait posts the millisecond they appear.
>the mods F5ing like madmen to janny every single one of their shitty bait posts the millisecond they appear.
Well, yeah. But not reacting to him seems to go inside his head really easilly. Well everything gets into his head really easilly. The most funny posts were from not reacting to him.
>Go to /meta/
>It requires a captcha to post
Captcha seems broken, send help.
>he can't get past the chess
I already got past the chess, its explicitly not working right now.
I turned it off, can yuou please take screenshots when this happens?
I was reporting a post so it appeared anyways.
Here are two screenshots I took.
I tested captcha via the actions menu and it works.
>Try reporting the post again
>It works first try
Yeah i tested over tor and clearnet and it worked. If anyone has issues with captcha, hit f12 and go to the console tab. If you see any errors related to captcha please post them. If you can't post feel free to sceam at me on pleroma
Why do you have captcha required on /meta/ anyway? The chess really was broken the other week (literally just a blank square where it should be) but it was impossible to post about it on /meta/.
I honestly forgot I had it on, it's off now. I never have to deal with captcha when I'm logged in so I don't always know when it's borked.
Just use trigger resets with a low PPH captcha trigger.
Chess is useless against me child.
I'm not the same person you dimwit.
Oh sorry! It's totally not like you act and post like him. :)
Does Sturgeon have a real job?
>shitty meta thread gets 5x pph than any other thread
I hate this place
>few dozen manually spammed posts then he gives up
It's like every goon pales in comparison to even the mildest dolphin antics from back in the day.
This meta thread is high quality, actually.
00 image, top right should have been checked. Second image is fully correct on all squares, should have passed.
>top right should have been checked
Are you sure?
>thread creation's locked
WTF is this bullshit? I want to talk about adventure games.
Despite the white lines, it's thick enough to count as a black piece. Had several cases where this happened.
Sometimes the captchas can be quite bullshit, but I learn to live with it because they trip up newfags and goons so much. Though what I can't live with is these captchas straight up refusing to load half the time.
That's true of all meta threads located on their home board.
Is visual novel allowed here? Bitches on /b/ are all uncultured bags of dicks compared to me. I'm looking for hot intelligent gentlemen with a burning passion for chinese powerpoints to discuss philosophy and lewd with.
I don't think it was ever said they weren't
I don't see why not.
who the fuck are you
Look in the mirror.
STOP FRICKING ME OUT
This board is boring, you should all be more entertaining.
Now go amuse me.
Why is there suddenly generals popping up for everything under the sun? All within the last 2 days.
>Adventure game general
>Visual novel thread
>Gameboy + GBC Thread
Someone desperately trying to save the sinking ship that is this board.
>etrian odyssey thread
>visual novel thread
>Gameboy + GBC Thread
You really don't know what that word means.
If someone is talking about videogames, its a general.
Lets talk about your mom then NERD.
That's not videogames though.
Then how did I get the high score?
You can get banned for mentioning (((them))) by their actual name in blacked moe. People prefering that place becauss muh pph are already compromised. Also what the fuck happened to loleron's site? Shit died out of nowhere.
>You can get banned for mentioning (((them))) by their actual name in blacked moe.
as in what? you get banned for saying "mark mann" or what
I think he means you can get banned for echoes because of all the newfags screeching about /pol/
Given it was posting on kikechan and unironically stupid enough to use wigger parentheses, the ban was probably for advocating child brides or bragging about all the minorities it totally fragged last week.
Never go against the (((Godfather))) of gamergate.
>You can get banned for mentioning (((them))) by their actual name in blacked moe
Pics or it didn't happen and you're a drama-stirring faggot.
Stay mad Mark
Why would you come here after getting banned from markchan? Fuck off to cuckchan instead.
Speaking of meta, why did patch shut down freech?
By the way shit moderation is done for laughs. Your shit is deleted by mods for fun. Its a hallmark of patchouli owned imageboards
Yo dude look patch is right here, talk to him. >>46525
>Why would you come here after getting banned from markchan? Fuck off to cuckchan instead.
If i had to guess, it's because "what are you gonna do about?".
>this nigger again
Feel free to provide proof any time.
>it's patch nigger again
Ohh yes I'm starting to remember the days of the bus
Got banned for calling someone a jew. Seriously. Ban has been lifted so cant screenshot sorry.
Lynxchan has public ban logs.
It is possible to break the ban logs on lynxchan so that they aren't accessible, but I'm not going to kikechan to check if Mark's stooped that low.
The 50000s is near. It will likely happen tomorrow. You niggers better be ready if you don't want them stolen again.
I am almost never on when they do come up, and anons now only spam so it ruins it for me.
Kiss me anons
this, wheres the fun if some faggot is just gonna spam 100 post while everyone sleeps
You can come here to >>>/b/ if you are asleep. 25 posts to go.
Was there a point to this post or were you just trying to be the 50000?
/japan/ has been btfo once again; defend your digits, /v/.

/japan/ killed itself when Tengu pussied out after getting an in-person visit from some /cow/spergs. He gave up ownership of the board to some russian guy.
He's already back apparently.
Please turn on the chess before the 50k get arrives.
I just want the would-be get snatchers to suffer.
make it so you have to fill out fifteen captchas on all posts once 20 are left before 50k :^)
We've been over this, it has to be complete winnie the pooh home run derbie to post.
>he wasn't invited when we talked about it
I think completing a random spell card in a random touhou game is actually very reasonable for a truly advanced and normalnigger/CIA-proof captcha
Can we ban the friday thread? Its just so damn cringey. A bunch of flamboyant fags jerking each other off like a group of females gossiping over retarded bitch shit.
just filter it, I never clicked on it even once. Pure cuckchan shit
How are you in here then?
You can be anywhere and not be cuckchan. Novel concept to you?
No, if they did that then this board wouldnt be much like Blacked.gov’s /v/, which is apparently not what pasta and seagull wanted to go for.
this site is shit
>pasta and seagul
Why the fuck was this thread deleted?
Check this out: >>50436
Because check the logs you lazy nigger
What the fuck is this shit? A perfectly normal thread got for some reason moved to some saging meme thread. Who the fuck asked you to do this?
I thought this place wasn't rulecucked with retarded mods. I guess I was wrong.
>this entire post
>A perfectly normal thread
>y can't metroid crawl is a valid thread
Not on this site, buddy.
Because you clearly do not know how to make a fucking thread properly, so Seagull is going to show you how to do it right. Don't let it happen again and consider yourself lucky your post survived at all..
shut the fuck up bitch mods work hard everyday for us for free how fucking dare you disrespect them like that you fucking nigger. Learn to act like a decent fucking person bitch,
>ugh, we decide how to post here buddy, your thread wasn't correct enough!
Yeah, so this place is a rulecucked shithole too. Oh well.
That's a boy.
Let's be realistic here, if your thread wasn't moved it would have gotten 2 >bait replies, someone checking dubs, another one complaining you're a cuckchanner which you are and despite sages and everyone else ignoring it, the thread would have been stuck in first page for 5 days because the board is fucking slow.
This isn't blacked.moe nor 4cuck, have some standards or post on /b/.
Then leave and don't go back here.
Yes, it is. Everywhere is, now. The 2020s will be marked by the reign of control freaks.
>this place is moderated how it's been moderated for over a year?
>ugh! this is very problematic, you should yield to my cultural standards as a tvch goon who got bored of his shitty board
got a problem?
>Yeah, so this place is a rulecucked shithole too. Oh well.
What constitutes something as "rulecucked"?
You are a faggot.
how am i a faggot?
Take a guess
You're a gay gay homo fruit.
just remove seagull, it'd make the board much better.
that faggot jannies for the sake of jannying, not because it's actually needed, his line of thinking is something along this
>I am a janny, I must janny and if there is nothing to janny, I'll janny something anyway
stupid fucking faggot
so none of you can prove to me that i am gay. This is purely slander of the highest orda! I demand the manager of this place, Mr.. Fish to step in and remove these sub human beings from the face of this sanctuary. I am not gay.
I personally have no beef against Seagull, he's a pretty cool guy and thinks just like me. I'd hang out with him in real life did I know him.
shut the fuck up faggot i don't like your homosexual attitude towards our moderator.
Every single time I see faggots complain about seagull it's because he deleted their cuckchan shit-posts, without fail that's it every single time. Keep up the good work. The julay/tvch cabal will dwindle away with time.
Funny how eerily similar your sentence is to those arguments by people defending Mark’s shitty moderation habits w
Seagull is the best. I love Seagull!
So if a moderator deletes a one liner thread OP with soyjaks in it, then the tvch goon spergs out and people say it was warranted, do you get to refute that by declaring "you guys are the same as cakeniggers defending cakekike"? When mods do stupid shit I call them stupid, when mods do fine shit and there's a blatant cabal of you julay teenagers trying to stir shit I'll speak up too.
I have a folder filled with literally hundreds of instances of cakekike acting maliciously. I've yet to see anyone actually provide evidence of the mods here doing things that are indefensibly stupid or weren't quickly remedied.
You not being able to effectively form an argument does not mean everyone else is being blindly loyal to internet janitors, it just means you're an idiot.
>I have a folder filled with literally hundreds of instances of cakekike acting maliciously.
seconding this, post em
Can we go without bad actors for five seconds? What attracts those autists to us?
Goons are attracted to any and all drama.
Goons and SJWs are just another form of the moral crusader. They are constantly on the lookout for anything they can use to elevate themselves within their social circles, and that means attacking even harmless people who just want to be left alone.
OP made a shitty 1-line question thread related to some webm. Normally I would delete or lock the thread but after so many complaints of me "deleting anything he doesn't like" I moved it to the webm thread instead.
>even acknowledging goons complaints
Now you've done it you stupid bird
>But after so many complaints I gave in
>Mfw you post this while there are goons in this thread posting right now
Good job admitting to that, prepare for even more complaints.
>Normally I would be a stupid fucking janny but after so many rightful complaints of me being a stupid fucking janny I decided to be a stupid fucking janny
I'm not convinced
Didn't really gave in to anyone as I'm still deleting cuckchan threads. The only reason that one wasn't nuked was because it was still somewhat salvageable. It was bad not due to wojaks or other crap, it was bad because it was an effortless 1-line question. If we didn't have a webm or QTDDTOT thread it would get deleted.
If you want to be convinced, I literally told him to move those posts over to the WEBM thread.
If he hadn't received any reports, he would have done nothing. Too bad I exist.
If you love eating shit so much, why dont you venture back to cuckold-channel?
I'm sure you'll find a lot of funny one-liner threads there to upvote.
>multiple people report a shitty, low-effort thread
>seagull acts on their reports

Seems like a decent solution to me.
This is now BÖC thread.
>not Unknown Tongue
If you are given two equations where one of them is cosA+cosB= number and sinA+sinB= another number, how do you solve it?
>Acting on mere reports rather than going by the rules objectively
If you were ever an ib mod or janny you’d know a lot of shit gets reported, usually stuff that isnt even breaking any rules whatsoever. To act on those would be the mark of a spineless moderator who needs to be lead rather than to lead himself.
I don't listen to Cultösaurus Erectus that much. Fire of Unknown Origin and Spectres are my go to usually. That new album was fucking sweet though.
>If you were ever an ib mod or janny you’d know a lot of shit gets reported, usually stuff that isnt even breaking any rules whatsoever. To act on those would be the mark of a spineless moderator who needs to be lead rather than to lead himself.
this a million times
somebody help, please. I need this solved in a few hours
They're called bad actors for a reason.
CosA + CosB = 2 * Cos(A+B*0.5) * Cos(A-B*0.5)
if SinA and CosA assume the same A, then 90-X will give you that.
If you already have "number", then you could just look at a radian circle diagram.
For example, Cos(x) = Cos(180 - x) and so on.
and what if each sine/cosine is followed by a factor, that is, C*sinA + D*sinB?
>ignoring your users means you're a good mod
An interesting flavor of retardation.

>cuckchanner pleading for his one line OP to stay up
you have to go back
if it's not high effort it belong on cuckchan, not here, shiteater
Is ‘cuckchan quality’ clearly defined or listed out in examples exhaustively? Don’t think so. If you want to start making arbitrary rules about what ‘kind’ of thread is or isnt allowed then you’ll need to improve the verbiage of the existing rules, make more rules, or list examples of what you dont want to see.
you can look at the thread yourself, it's quintessentially cuckchan, may as well have a wojak for the op
We've already broken this "guideline" you've setup.
Which is incredibly autistic anyways.
>Tell OPs to be more than a single line
>OPs start being mounds of shit
>If someone deletes it for being obvious shitposting some low grade autist will start sperging about how it didn't technically break the rules
Lurk for 6 thousand more years faggot.
30 more users and actuall PPH. Wowie zowie we must have someone bitching in the meta thread!
You act like you don't enjoy this shit while you secretly love every second of it.
I can't help what I am.
You act as if 90% of that isn't the same three raiders replying to themselves/each other. Chess should have been turned on fucking yesterday.
oh yeah cause chess captcha totally keeps out the shitters (save for like 2 or 3 /cow/niggers)
It does, but it's been broken as of late a lot so it's not a proper solution in its current state.
