It is time for a new /b/admin. We've had a few of them in the past. Some doxxed themselves and I let them go, some just didn't work out, and I'm not sure what happened to the very last one. If the discord admin is someone who enjoys something like 4chan's old /b/, I would give the board to him, since he seems like someone that cares and puts work into things, given what he did with our discord. If he is not interested, I will give it to a random pun anon and let's hope he does a good job. And if there are people who strongly want to /b/admin even if discord admin wants as well, I can do some sort of lottery to see who wins. What I can't do right now is have multiple mods for /b/ at this moment, it would not work well due to a lack of mod audit tool. In the past, I kinda tried letting badmins sort their own rules, and just asked to try and make something that rewards creativity, but I felt the rules were always messy and not objective. So this time I'm handing down the rules I feel work well with an official /b/ board, and ask that the admin respects it: >1) On topic threads are for creative content. Someone saying something that wasn't said before, someone asking users to post cows on fish chan, people making their own variations of some image. Anything that is creative or inspires people to be creative. As philosoraptor says, it can't be called random if it is always the same threads and reposts. >2) Anything else is off topic. Political discussions, talking about people (especially if in romantic or sexual manner), waifus, personal blog posts, requests. This is to ensure we never end like 4chan's /b/, which was once the main board now has become a boring place for posting porn.
>>25805 I wonder if whoever made this image is still around
I'd love to, but I am actually not allowed to take on that obligation legally, for reasons that I dare not explain. Give it to somebody that's not me.
>political threads are off topic Why the rule change? That goes against everything /b/ has ever been. Count me out.
>>25807 What happened to staying in your containment board chum? >you have to go back.
>>25805 >discord This is very alarming that you would endorse something so unsecure. Protip: only the FBI and morons that don't understand opsec would use discord. There is no way go hide your true identity from discord, theres so many exploits that deanonymoise users.
>>25808 Because there's a /pol/ board? You know, all this time, I thought that you were just trolling me - that you were just PLAYING retarded - but there's nothing trolly about what you just said. You legit don't get that politics go on the /pol/ board. Either that, or you just want to troll /b/ with your quasi-political nazi shit without Gadmin interfering. >>25809 Well, considering how little you post, maybe you're better off getting your own containment board. I'd very much prefer you getting your very own /nazi/ board.
>>25805 >now has become a boring place Which remains the fastest moving chan board of all time, that has adapted to the userbase, and hasn't ever slowed down to less the a 1000 posts per hour. Get rekt m8
>>25814 4chan is a good example of quantity over quality. Memes aren't a good thing. I can't remember the last time I visited 4chan. Did I even do that once this year? How about you? If 4chan is so amazing, then why are you even here?
>>25813 Oh new chum, lurk 6 months before posting. /b/ is the main board for discussion of all topics. It always has been. The on / off topic system keeps shitpost threads separated from actual discussion threads. Yes, there's a /pol/ board for strictly political discussion, which has been shitted up with multiple Amos threads and Angel blog posts for some reason.
>>25807 wat >>25808 >>25816 Personally, I never liked the concept that discussion threads should be on topic in /b/, let alone have a very subject rule such as "shitposts" go to off topic. I've always pushed the idea that /b/ on topic is for creative, random (in the sense of unexpected) posts. Some badmins that thought on those lines you mentioned, but I never felt like they worked in practice, nor that they made /b/ a more fun place >>25812 >endorse something so unsecure Well, we don't have any other popular options for group chat. As I've said before, you are right that discord has no anonymity, so use it not to be anonymous, but to socialize and talk with people. >>25814 Of course something that is just pr0n will be popular. But old /b/ is dead now on 4chan and it does not exist anywhere else there.
Also, I have just been turned down by one of the biggest ad services because enrive did not have enough content. I asked for a double check, mentioning we had more than 300k posts, but they still said not enough content. you gotta post faster
>>25817 >wat If the cops come for Enrive, I'd have to answer for my role as a moderator of a board where people could post illegal things all day long - maybe not illegal to your laws, but illegal to mine. Right now my legal defense is that any illegal posts aren't allowed/supposed to be there, but on /b/ pretty much anything goes. I'd be an accomplice. Also, about blog posts, I have no idea how to tell those apart from non blog posts. I'm posting about "muh rituals" on /pain/, and since nobody else is sharing my devotion, and the thread is long, it will de facto become a blog. If nobody replies to a thread, and it's just maintained by one poster, and it evolves any current events, it could be said to be a blog post. >Well, we don't have any other popular options for group chat. As I've said before, you are right that discord has no anonymity, so use it not to be anonymous, but to socialize and talk with people. Still, in order for the cops to deanonymize Enrive's Discord users, all they need to do, is to track them down via Discord, and then watch what these IPs post on the boards (since they can then see the traffic coming OUT from these IPs). ...but ultimately it's a personal choice. Maybe you don't have anything to hide. >you gotta post faster I'm already posting as much as my colon can produce, but I'll try to fart harder. No guarantees, though.
>>25817 >Personally, I never liked... Your opinions are shit How about you change the FAQ then Make it you safe space Move some threads to off topic while your at it.
>>25818 >you gotta post faster >/4chan/
>>25819 >I'm already posting as much as my colon can produce Maybe you should focus more on quality, instead of maximum autism.
>>25822 >Maybe you should focus more on quality, instead of maximum autism. I'm afraid maximum autism is all I know and am. I'm a certified autist - so autistic, if fact, that I'm declared too retarded to have a job. I've got some heavy retard action going on IRL, with public screeching and shit. I'm the king of my world, baby! My posting will still be less autistic than 4chan, though.
>>25820 p-pls be nice
>>25824 >Outlander You ain't seen nothin yet. Look at past global threads.. THIS IS WAR
>>25825 >You're gonna see some autistic shit soon. Will it include posting?
so, who is going to badmin?
Farting is hard, gadmin. Hopefully I'm doing this right: https://enrive.org/a/thread/2328
If nobody is interested in being /b/admin at this time I will do it myself, and pass the torch at a later date. I'll leave this global thread up for another week
>>25812 >>25817 Discord can be anonymous, just most people out themselves. In fact i have different accounts for different servers/groups im in.
>>25830 No one is this retarded. Nice try.
>>25805 Gad, I have a question, looking at pages 1 & 2, which threads would you choose to be on topic vs off topic. I'm all about OC, and threads that create discussion personally. Although, I feel like there's a miscommunication between what you would allow to be on topic, and what I was eventually move to off topic if the board is moving slow, vs what I thought was just shitposting if the board picked up the pace. tl;dr: I'm willing to give being b/admin a shot.
Hey Gad, whats up with ccluster? Still own it, just using this domain as a rebrand? >https://ccluster.com/media/images/b_207878.jpg >Link & pic related
>>25832 >Controlling the pace of a board to a personal liking. What? Next are you going to forbid necroing too? I'm not Gadmin, but to me it's easy: Besides the rules that Gadmin stated previously, maybe only mark things that clearly belongs in another official board, as off-topic, if at all. It's not like /b/ has been moving at a neckbreaking speed lately, but why ever make it a matter of pace at all? Does everything newsworthy have to stay on the first page, just because people can't find their way to page 2, or what?
>>25833 I'm never using that domain name again >>25832 If anything that is discussion is allowed on topic, then you'll have people talking about video games, politics, drugs, music and more on /b/. I think that is pointless and would kill a board that could otherwise be one of the most interesting and unique places on the internet, like /b/ used to be on 4chan. As I've stated before, /b/ should be about unexpected threads. It is for threads that deal with unpredictable content, where you don't know what a thread may end up leading to or spawning. On page 1, right now, I would only on topic: >I'm retarded and I know it >talking about 8chan (as a special case since a big event happend to it right now, so technically we are dealing with unexpected) >perhaps the apocalypse one >standing on one leg >paint thread page 2: >pretend normie thread everything else I'd off topic A /b/ thread doesnt have to be clever, nor good to be on topic. It just needs to be something more unpredictable. I really dislike the notion of allowing "discussion" of anything to be on topic, it has never worked well in my opinion. And the best era of /b/ in here was right when we started in 2013, where everything looked so terrible style-wise, but we had the most active /b/ posting by far with people just goofing around and creating new things, it felt to me what /b/ should be. Pic related
>>25835 If that's how it's going to be, then I'm going to make a /p/ board. ...for /predictable/. ...which is where you post if it doesn't fit any other board, and it isn't spam. Boring, expected threads would go there. ...because to me /b/ has always been where you post if you can't find another board to post something in, and if not even /b/ would be an option, then I think people should be able to post what they want SOMEwhere. ...so it's gonna be /p/, if it's not already taken.
>>25817 maybe try tox
>>25836 >to me /b/ has always been where you post if you can't find another board to post something in but we have unlimited boards in here since anyone can make anything, we are like an infinite chan
>>25838 >but we have unlimited boards in here since anyone can make anything, we are like an infinite chan Only in theory. In practice we just have lots of boards, but no lists of them, so we only have 3-5 extra boards besides the official ones, and some forgotten boards that either is just porn, or nobody posts in. I also assume that Outsiders can't create boards, so /p/ is an option for Outsiders as well. I also hate it that I have to fear a moderator every time I post in a board. I don't know this mod, but apparently the current badmin candidate will leave it up to his personal taste of "pacing" whether my topic gets semi-censored or not, and that's all my trust gone. ...but now we can have it both ways: "Quality threads" go in /b/, and garbage threads go in /p/, and if you don't like /p/, you can filter it away - you having the control instead of a mod stranger. This also means more content, and more ads, and more funds. Now we just need the board filter implemented again. My name is Boxxy.
>>25805 >1) On topic threads are for creative content. Someone saying something that wasn't said before, someone asking users to post cows on fish chan, people making their own variations of some image. Anything that is creative or inspires people to be creative. As philosoraptor says, it can't be called random if it is always the same threads and reposts. >2) Anything else is off topic. Political discussions, talking about people (especially if in romantic or sexual manner), waifus, personal blog posts, requests. What if the topic of a thread covers something related #1 and something related to #2 at the same time? Should the thread then be on-topic or off-topic? Example: Someone makes a thread about making new OC about his waifu. In that case it would meet several things mentioned as #1: -posting something that wasn't posted before -people making their own variations of some image (or even making an entirely new own image) -is creative or inspires people to be creative but it would also meet several things mentioned as #2: -talking about people (probably in romantic manner (or the opposite when haters of OP's waifu join)) -waifus What overweighs in such a case? Being creative about a topic or the topic itself? Btw, pic related features the waifu of many people (including myself) "Literaturloli" and another girl called "Brummloli", but the pic is new, I've just made it quickly for this post and it was never posted before (but in case the "Brummloli"-thread on kohlchan is still there, I will post it there immediately after making this post). If I had wished to make a thread on /b/ with this in order to encourage others to create further OC about that waifu or so, would such a thread have had to be on-topic or off-topic?
>>25840 btw. disclaimer: Me making a pic of two gigantic girls destroying the city of Paris does not mean that I hate Parisians or French people or want to encourage terrorist actions against them. It's just a stupid example-pic that I chose because I had just saved the png-templates of those 2 girls and also that pic of Paris shortly before so I just did something using that out of convenience.
>>25841 Too late. The FBI has already been contacted. ...and the military. We're going to need artillery to fight these lolis.
>>25840 >in case the "Brummloli"-thread on kohlchan is still there Fuck, I just noticed that not only the thread, but even the whole "side" is (almost) completely gone.
>>25839 >also hate it that I have to fear a moderator every time I post in a board The worst that can happen is that he moves your thread to off topic, which in some cases may even make your thread stay in the front page longer than if it were on topic depending on the activity of the board. So how is that so something so bad you have to fear?
>>25844 >The worst that can happen is that he moves your thread to off topic, which in some cases may even make your thread stay in the front page longer than if it were on topic depending on the activity of the board. So how is that so something so bad you have to fear? It's not a FEAR fear, but nobody wants to be told that his post is less worth than any other poster's. I want a board where all my posts can be accepted, and not judged. For the most part I just post garbage, but that's all I amount to, but I still want to be part of the internet too somehow. ...so now I have /p/. In this way I don't have to feel in the way either, after the filtering system is implemented. If you want to see me, I'll be rolling around in the garbage over there. If you don't, then I fully understand. It's a win-win for everyone. ...and I'm not even the most garbage poster on this board, so those posters have a place to go too now.
>>25835 I still don't get it. >I'm retarded... It's a shitpost. It's not organic, orginal, or authentic. It clearly was made either out of boredom, shilling, or OP is really a retsrd. More then likely all 3 I don't mean to single out one thread, but this here is where we disagree the most of what old /b was about. Amongst the current batch of other threads, considering the speed of the board, I do agree with leaving it on topic, but if it was used to keep quality threads off of page 1 by posting new on topic threads, and replies picked up, I would probably move it off topic. I remember an old power hungry rule cuck b/admin over zealously moving every new thread he didn't like off topic with extreme prejudice and constant complaints from the userbase that led to the creation of /b2 then the eventual decline in new thread creation due to over moderation when the board was fairly slow. I think there needs to be a balance in moderation and board speed. If quality threads, that aren't repedative inspire conversation start to get slid off of page one by shitpost threads, then shitpost threads need to be moved off topic. If the board is self moderating and threads are being made at a slow rate, leave them alone. If a happening is taking place, let it be on topic, if it loses interest, and is only getting off topic posts to keep it on page one, move it off topic. I don't think a political thread that started on b should be moved off tooic just because /pol exists, if it inspires replys, let the userbase discuss it instead of punishing them. Let /b be truly random, where any topic is allowed to be on topic if it generates discussion.
>>25845 Do you mean /p as in /pain? It's a good containment board for a subject that goes beyond one thread. There is no reason in shitting up /b with nonsense when you can just keep it all in one place imo I always felt it was an attempt to keep this place dead tbh.
>>25835 The 8kids thread is about a current happening that hasn't been resolved yet. In 2014, during the exodus it was MC vs 8ch. 4kids users flocked here and there, so 8ch being deplatformed is an epic happening. I didnt think we would disagree about that thread being in topic, and I feel like we are in the same page when it come to that at least. >Apocalypse The thread was made off topic, I couldn't see moving it on topic unless it was generating a lot of replys and was being constantly bumped off of page one.
>>25835 The standing on one leg, like the Greta threads are all along the same content posted by the same autist. All of these threads should be made on the /pain or Greta or /doom board. I'm not sure why that chum feels the need to post so much low quality threads, across so many boards, unless he is trying to shit up the place on purpose like shareblue or the jidf does. Even worse is the same style of posting has spilled over into the /pol board, when it should of been all in one thread on /b or in it's own /Amos board. While it's only a handful of nonsense threads, it all belongs on 4chan. That's my 2 cents.
>>25835 The paint thread is natural and organic. It belongs on topic. Along with the normie larping thread too.
>>25849 >The standing on one leg, like the Greta threads are all along the same content posted by the same autist. All of these threads should be made on the /pain or Greta or /doom board. If anything, I feel like I'm posting far too much off-topic bullshit in /pain/ already. ...like the latest necrophilia thread: It's got nothing to do with pain, but since it has to do with Kali, I posted it there anyway, just to spare you guys from flooding /b/ with just Kali threads. Maybe I should make a /kali/ board as well, but I'm running three boards already. >I'm not sure why that chum feels the need to post so much low quality threads, across so many boards, unless he is trying to shit up the place on purpose like shareblue or the jidf does. Dude, Gadmin already said that we need MORE content to be approved for ads, so I'm doing my best to provide you with both quantity and quality. Just that I can use punctuation and capitalization, makes my threads top tier on the internet. Also, I'm a garbage human being. What I'm posting is the best that I can come up with. The skidmarks in my pants is fucking today's top news in my life. >Even worse is the same style of posting has spilled over into the /pol board, when it should of been all in one thread on /b or in it's own /Amos board. It doesn't get more Masterchan /pol/ than Amos Yee and his reknowned political struggle for pedo rights, so on that account you're just wrong.
>>25849 >I'm not sure why that chum feels the need to post so much low quality threads, across so many boards, unless he is trying to shit up the place on purpose Also, I don't feel that you have the right to complain about shitposting, until you post something yourself. Anything. Make a wholesome thread about what your favourite fruit is. Make content for this board. ...FFS. I'm creating half the content for this board because I HAVE to, because you guys aren't doing YOUR part.
>>25849 >Even worse is the same style of posting has spilled over into the /pol board, when it should of been all in one thread on /b or in it's own /Amos board. Here's some (((figures))): - When this was posted: 2019-11-13 (yesterday) - The last time that something was posted in /pol/: 2019-10-15 (a month ago) ...and this was "the Amos flood posting" that you're talking about. The slowest motherfucking "flood" in history, still managing to flood away all "other content" that's nowhere to be seen because I guess the jews made off with it. - The most recent post that wasn't about Amos: Brongersma, 2019-09-11 (two months ago) ...but this one was ALSO made by me - the Amos poster - so maybe that's "part of the flood". - The most recent post made but somebody who wanted to post in /pol/ that wasn't me: 2019-10-02 (a month ago) This is what you're whining about, you weakling. How about we do this instead? How about he just remove /pol/ from the official board list, since nobody's posting in there anyway?
>>25851 >Maybe I should make a /kali/ board as well Good idea m8 Who knows, other retards may take your idea and run with it and it could become our most active board! >I'm doing my best to provide you with both quantity and quality No, you're just shitposting at top speed. Take a step back and come up with a plan on how your shitposting can inspire conversations vs making this place look worse then reddit. >It doesn't get more Masterchan /pol/ You're living in the past, its time to move on. RIP in peace Masterchan Enrive Master Race is the future Embrace infamy.
>>25852 You don't get it dood. We're all waiting until you either die or give up and fuck off. No one wants to be associated with a site with your low tier posting. Maybe if you started posting less, others would start posting more. If you look thru the archive you can see the trend of quality posting decline because of the amount of reddit tier shitposting.
>>25853 > just remove /pol/ from the official board list You didn't need to post a whole paragraph to just request this. We all know what (((your))) assignment is here, kike shill.
>>25854 >Who knows, other retards may take your idea and run with it and it could become our most active board! Oh, it WOULD be - I've no doubt about that. It's just that if there'd be a sudden Indian influx, I don't speak hindi or any other Indian language, so good luck decoding posts about child sacrifices via Google translate, amongst hundreds of posts a day. :P >No, you're just shitposting at top speed. >Take a step back and come up with a plan on how your shitposting can inspire conversations vs making this place look worse then reddit. You sure seem to live in an up-side-down world, where Reddit is full of "shitposts", and meme posting is inspiring and top quality, along with no posting at all. Take /a/ for example: What do you want /a/ to be, if not threads about new shows? /a/ is a board for anime shitposts, and my posting there is as good as it's ever going to be. It's not me - it's anime itself. ...but what's even worse, is having an anime board and not posting anything at all, sitting on your hands and just waiting for Jesus to come along and post a miraculous anime post that isn't shit.
>>25855 >You don't get it dood. We're all waiting until you either die or give up and fuck off. No one wants to be associated with a site with your low tier posting. Again with the "It's not me - it's the jews!" shit. Nobody's buying your narrative, dumbass. We all know that you're just a lazy bum who didn't post shit before I got here, and still won't post shit if I'd leave. Stop being an insult to whites. > just remove /pol/ from the official board list >You didn't need to post a whole paragraph to just request this. >We all know what (((your))) assignment is here, kike shill. I can just picture you at the grave of /pol/ going "NOOO!!! Not /pol/! I had so many quality posts to post! I would make it beautiful, but the jews ruined it for me! I'm not a lazy slob - it's the jews!".
>>25840 >What overweighs in such a case? I'd say #1 always overweights all, as long as the thread's theme, the main point of it, is really not something mostly #2 related with a little #1 on top. I've always said in the past, /b/ will always be a subjective board to moderate, and it is ok to make mistakes sometimes - it is not like a thread will disappear because of that. But with simple rules and mods having a feel for it should not be difficult either. So the thread you are talkign about, seems like #2 with minor #1, I'd off topic it. I might try to mod /b/ myself for a while, since I haven't got a shot at it yet. Since the start I gave to other people like fey. But I don't want to moderate it on the long run at all
>>25859 >I'd off topic it.
>>25859 >I might try to mod /b/ myself for a while Don't fuck it up! Good luck dickbag
This latest image flood was 26 images big, probably because I interrupted it twice with my own posts, so that he couldn't flood ALL the front page text posts away, and so he had to restart the flood twice. I don't know. When is the board filtering coming back?
>>25862 >When is the board filtering coming back? I intend to work on that next, along with a rudimentary system to display boards. Was busy doing my other jobs last week, and I'm still working with the ads to reach the point where they fully pay for server costs again. Since only one person has shown interest in /b/admin this time around, and not decisively, I will attempt moderating myself for a while and hopefully it work out well and we can keep its system for the future. Soon I'll start sorting out threads
>Since only one person has shown interest in /b/admin this time around, and not decisively, I will attempt moderating myself for a while and hopefully it work out well and we can keep its system for the future. Soon I'll start sorting out threads I think that's a good idea, since you have an idea of how you want to profile this site, and what your style of "creativity" is, and it pretty much comes down to how you choose to moderate /b/. At least for a while, you need to set examples on how to moderate.
