Is there an easy way to speak with 4chan staff? What if I have something I want to contribute to 4chan that I don't think will get seen on /qa/?

The answers you seek lie within...

2007 is when it went downhill because that's when Project Chanology made "Anon" / 4chan mainstream.

>usenet posts from the pre-meme days
Memes are older than you think. Usenet had its memes too. It's where "meme" went from a term Richard Dawkins made up to the modern sense (excluding the recent idiots who use "meme" to mean "image macro"). Politeness doesn't mean you can't have humor or in-jokes.
>>
>>2054164
Exploding vans and that anon that was arrested for a superbowl bomb threat, the end of anonymity.
>>
>>2054165
Usenet also wasn't always polite, it's where the term "trolling" was coined. That's why I preferred moderated email lists for civil, mutual-interest-based discussion.

>>2054164
Nah, 4chan's creation was part of the decline.

Why are you doing this.

Is there a way to do this by the folder, though? Or better yet, is there a way to make image capture in media player classic (or equivalent) make compressed PNGs?

Riot has a batch upload compression that works well enough for most things, but i'm still always a little wary of quality loss.

>>2054723
This, although I don't think the change was very recent.
https://desuarchive.org/qa/thread/1470327/#1480679

I just rechecked, and currently, thumbnails are produced with JPEG compression quality 50 for OP images and 40 for replies (larger is better). Whereas in https://warosu.org/jp/thread/S10 it's 60 for both OP and replies.

>>2054764
Interesting stuff, actually sort of glad they implemented this since thumbs don't matter that much anyways.

Was 4chan really better in the past?

You probably know about it already, but here's a small archive from before 2008:
https://archive.org/details/studionyami-com_penfifteen-2012-03-05

When I look at those threads, I really wonder why oldfagism is so widespread, this stuff isn't any better than it is now. Just going off my memory i get the same feeling.

Is it just that we've become desensitized to this type of content, which in the past was refreshing and exciting?
>>
Whenever I go to anime/game themed Youtube vids the comments section ususually gives me nostalgia vibes for old 4chan that I rarely feel from modern posts here anymore.
>>
You mean videos uploaded recently or old videos whose audience was mainly channers?
>>
Nostalgia of the fags of yore, and over glorification by the fags of today.
The past always looks better than it really was in retrospect. The internet today pumps out more OC -true OC, not 'memes' and repetitive content- than it ever did before, just somewhere else.

Here /qa/ let me show you something really beautiful. You do appreciate beauty, don't you? There you are, ¥900,000,000 on two hooves. I bet a Bitcoin Millionaire never paid that kind of dough for a single uma musume. I'm not gonna race her, though. I'm gonna put her out to stud.
