>>413380979
There is a place for irony but I think when it comes to genuine enjoyment being honest and out there with your opinions and emotions and likes and etc on an anon image board will always be superior and ultimately more rewarding. When everything is just "ironic" it becomes empty and soulless I think. I think not just this website or community but many others have suffered this way due to irony poisoning.

>>413381056
Because this board is a disorganised cesspool everyone comes to only to shitpost in their free time. /a/ is elitist and would never allow their board to become as shitty as this one.

Honestly 4chan is just lame as hell now, I come here mostly for habit and for announcements like Etrian Odyssey X. But modern things like baiting for (You)'s (which was never ever a fucking thing even in the low months of 2008) really hurt the site and brought about a very dark age of shitposting.

4chan is the worst site yet it is still better than any of the 'social media' kinds of sites people inhabit nowadays. I'll stay here sooner than I'd stay on reddit, imgur, youtube beyond just watching videos, or whatever else is out there.

>>413383674
my original point is that 4chan was originally a place where outcasts, autists, mentally ill, hermits could come and exist in a place where for the first time in your life you could legitimately relate to people. I'm not saying that one should never attempt to self improve. but a normal person doesn't just become someone like that by being a little bit lazy, being unemployed etc. some people are pathologically broken or abnormal. this isn't to say that 4chan should be a safespace for these people, just that the reason people like that came here in the first place was to get away from the types of people who are now finding there way to this site.
>>
>>413383668
It's retarded man, what little discussion happens isn't worth scavenging through the bullshit for.

I will always praise 4chan for one single thing though. How fucking fast the news spreads here, including literally any incident on literally every topic. I've mostly just stopped looking at the news nowadays because whatever happens will be covered here on almost any board for whatever reason at light fucking speed. So props to you autisms for that.

I guess biz is alright, I've never had an issue with that lot.

>>413383807
>haha you wanted a simple captcha? How about you wait for these images to slowly load, better keep clicking!

|Us broken people are still around but we are definitely a minority, how much I do not know. I have to doubt all the old 4chan guard were complete freaks of nature, I mean moot and snacks were outcast autists but could still socialize with women. I'd think there are boards more safe from the normalfags - /soc/ sure as shit ain't it but back in 08 I remember my manwhore firefighter normalfag friend being a /b/tard. So maybe they were always here.

>>413383980
I will check /pol/ first for news updates and I am pretty sure the mainstream media does too. They'd be fools to actually think anything is credible but it's a fantastic early warning system. You just have to recognize what's sensationalized nonsense and what's not. Anything "TURN ON THE TV THEY JUST NUKED/THEY JUST STARTED WW3/TRUMP JUST GOT ASSASSINATED" and it's hogshit. Anything short of that and it's great.

Other reason why I say /pol/ is /b/ is because of how much /pol/ can do. /b/ did bomb threats and exploding vans. /pol/ made a US presidential candidate invoke a cartoon frog as a sinister figure.

He means reddit just copied 4chan's mannerisms and jokes from several years before. The issue now is that people from reddit literally come to 4chan for new jokes and memes and post them to reddit for upboats.

I stopped writing here long ago. I get my daily shot of socializing from online relationships I built over the years and a bit from coworkers at work. Some weekends I can go without talking to anyone, though. Play games more often and watch movies, too. Still come here out of habit to see what's new, but I usually get all my info from news aggregator sites since most of threads here are not videogames or thinly veiled not videogames.

I just checked their /v/ board's catalog.

There's a noticeable lack of waifushit, wojaks, and other off topic threads.

I gave up on that site when the average E.Y.E thread was 50% of posts calling it shit, unable to grasp the mediocre beauty of eurojank. Then a month later suck Kingdom Come's dick while praising eurojank. That and how many threads get ruined singlehandedly by a lone autist like the Rimworld threads.

Their Alpha Centauri Threads are bretty good though.

The thing is that, trying to meet someone from here currently, instead of being a chill time with people that may share your interests, it's pretty much a shitshow of "HEY EVERYONE LOOK AT ME" or "MEMES MEMES MEMES".

The memespam is so much worse now because the originality has slowed to a crawl. I think it first started after reddit was poaching OC, creating an environment here where people were hesitant to create stuff lest it got ripped off and posted there, which in turn led to increased amount of derivative content. I think also more "people" who just love spamming unfunny shit have taken up residence here.

moot openly hated /v/, as he should have. This board only gets killed little by little every day by kids trying to be funny 24/7 with their shitty internet irony humor. And all we have to do to stop it all is not humor them, not seriously reply, just to report and remind them very harshly to talk about VIDEO GAMES or else they can fuck off back to facebook. The problem is that even the older posters engage in the shitty ironic shitposting and participate in the "I'm a funny anonymous internet guy haha my post is so witty" contest as well, so everything goes to shit and no one gives a fuck about the video game hobby in the end. And that attitude is generally encouraged here because "games are all shit now hurr durr" or some other bullshit excuse to try and shitpost more ironic internet humor for the sake of impressing anonymous users with your witty replies, or at least try very fucking hard.

If everyone on this board tried to play games as much as they try to be funny and shitpost ironic internet humor, they'd all be goddamn e-sports pros by now. /v/ is actually fucking dying now for real and no one gives a shit because being dismissive is the cool thing to do now.

This is the biggest problem right here, doing anything fun or original just gets shitposted to death about trying to be the new hotest meme or some shit. Vee House was only a few years ago and it was a blast, but I would imagine a Sims 3 playthrough with video game characters remade shittly that ends with Stu Pickles using a M107 to kill a baby thats glitching out and devouring half the town would get shitposted away.

I "blame" lurkmore culture, that type of assimilation can't keep up with a large influx of people like we've had over the last few years that misinterpret shitposting as board culture. I've been futilely spoonfeeding people shit over the last few years hoping it would at least keep some video game culture alive on this wojack spamming shithole.

The whole "rare pepe" thing was the turning point. Holy shit did that explode into cancer so fucking quickly. Then /r9k/ tried to recover by forcing poopoo pepe, but that blew right the fuck up in their faces since normalfags loved that too. Then you got the subreddits turning /r9k/ into meme hell to try and harvest everything, ruining it forever and creating a foothold by which the rest of the site got completely overrun. I mean, there were plenty of incursions of whatever offsite cancers before then, but I think that was the killing blow. IIRC, that might have been somewhat contemporaneous with gamergate and the fappening, but I'm not sure.

That event caused reddit to keep flooding this place with cancer, unfortunately.

I hink 2006/2007. At first i saw some le funny gifs, thinking that 4chan is some epic humor site. i was utterly wrong and the truth slammed me like a 15pound dick t the face

Now we're on sit swarmed with normies and newssites tier people who came here durning US election. We're also swarmed by trash since gg and moot leaving after finally shaming himself as a reddit fucker and whiteknight horny for pussy, purging most odlfags mods for normie ones to supress gg outrage. When Aniki died newfags mods didnt even know who he was and they deleted every thread until one of the last olfags mod stepped in asking what the fuck are they doing fucking niggers. Also it was first time durning 10 years when i called someone newfag asking to lurk more. The feeling. it was hilarous, like opening box of lego as a adult

Now, most oc posters left, we're full of shills, marketers and people who link directly to reddit and kotaku, talking back at anyone who calls them on their idiocy. last fun thread i remember was durning christmas in yearly Tails got trolled

Another major factor in the site's downfall is the proliferation of generals. /tg/ is a great example of this: one of the most creative boards on the site for a long time, but eventually all the content creators left and the board melted into a bunch of very distinct generals with the occasional intermittent bait thread. /vg/'s split with /v/, /jp/ congealing, /pol/'s /ptg/ (Syria general is sort of ok, though), /trash/, and /tv/'s generals (another major cross-site vector) are also pretty telling. When you get generals, you basically fracture the board culture into numerous tiny subcultures. It removes unity, and with it the large amount of creative drive that you get from having a bunch of people mix around. Generals force stagnation through isolation, and additionally foster a huge amount of attention whoring (look at a lot of the weirder /vg/ generals like Katawa Shoujo, Undertale, or DDLC). This whole site has been a slow descent into hell, with a few harsh shoves once in a while.

My filter list keeps growing larger and larger. Back in 07 when the extensions started becoming popular I thought filtering was a shitty thing to do, but now I can barely browse this board without 10 shitty not vidya, shill faggotry and blatant politics threads popping up.

Besides the website obviously becoming more popular and the userbase becoming younger, there are 2 core problems that aren't related to 4chan:

1. Left / Right racial and identity politics that infected the entire fucking western society this decade. 4chan got caught in the eye of the storm.

2. There is literally nowhere else to go.

The only solution I can see would be heavy moderation, a lot of word filters and radical change to current systems, such as making every post sage by default and exposing (or blocking) phoneposters. It would change the scope of the site but at this point I don't think we can sink any lower.

Not all of the things /b/ did were bad. /v/ being contrarian can be blamed on constanza, every single thread in 2011 was completely greentext >implying memes.

/pol/ itself isn't the problem, the problem was that the cuck retard moot deleted /news/ which made /pol/ way more popular when it was revived, because when you censor something it just makes it more popular, doubly so on this site.

I cut out vidya a few months back. Recently been feeling tired of being on the internet. After so many years, you realize that the internet is constantly being filled with new content, but it stays the same in the sense that there's always something interesting/outrageous going on. Also this whole popculture/nerd trend has me feeling disgusted. I'd rather just enjoy life and quit being a part of the collective conciousness.

It doesn't mean I won't stop using social media to stay in touch with friends, family and for dating. I'm just saying i'm ready to leave behind the lurker/hikikomori lifestyle.

Good luck out there anon... and try to take care of yourself and enjoy the limited time we have to live. (2007 fag btw)

The biggest problem right now is that you need certain minimal userbase in order to keep the discussion alive. It's like with MP games: if they player base is too small, the game (or forum) is going to die quickly.
By the way, if you want to know why this board is so shit, the answer is really damn simple. Being shit = makes money. It's already not exactly lucrative - if /v/ was cleaned up, it would mean losing a significant amount of traffic that pays for the existence of this site, and for existence of other, less lively and less shit boards.

/v/ is kinda like a paid-for public toilet being used to finance small charity projects. People come here LITERALLY to shit all over, but that raises money for better causes.

The fact people could just have 1 or 2 fun threads then move on but needed to have constant threads about shit will kill this place. I also warned him about the australians.

I think GG and the fappening and the election were the worst things to happen to 4chan. We should really just rangeban all phoneposters and anyone who has more than 5 posts on /pol/. Kind of wish rustled jimmys stuck around longer, but at least Costanza posting is still alive.
On a side note, what's with people basing their entire arugment off of what reaction image you use? I remember someone calling me a sonicfag just because I had a reaction pic of Eggman. The conversation had nothing to do with Sonic. That just bothers me.

Since there is a meta thread up...

Am I alone in thinking the use as Soylent as an ebin meme/insult/whatever was forced?

I remember seeing it spammed in almost every thread on /v/ suddenly. It came out of nowhere, and it was used as a reply to any post remotely applicable. After a while (maybe a day or two), people started adopting it, though. It seemed so very unnatural, like a raid, maybe a marketing campaign, or the work of a really sad, bored individual.

I can laugh at nu-males: they all look and act the same, and are generally pathetic. I think the Switch edits with the wide open mouths are funny as well, since, apparently, apes do the same with their mouths to appear less threatening. However, that would've happened without those nu-males suddenly being called soyboys.

I remember helping a /v/ group host their UT2004 games when the founder mysteriously disappeared after it had become a weekly event.

There was still ironic memeing in the chat (mostly because there was the ability to make the text-to-speech say "greater than implying"), but boy was it enjoyable.

I feel nowadays those threads might get a knee-jerk ban because of advertising.

Just put some effort in your posts.

Shills, trolls, and ironic shitposters aren't going to bother putting effort into what they write. it's not worth the trouble when they can just move on to another thread.

I saw a post a few days ago where Anon asked what makes something Gamergate, after another Anon was sperging out about it. That Anon then felt forced to actually write a post in coherent English, that lasted longer than two whole sentences. He couldn't get further then some circular reasoning where anyone identifying with Gamergate was Gamergate somehow.

Even those longer winded, still retarded and illogical posts, are preferable to shitty, low-effort one-liners and pepes.

Same. I never even heard of Reddit until everyone started hating it here circa 2010.

Tripfags were usually the sort of people who would obsessively visit this site 12+ hours a day. But since the site has been so bad for so long, most either quit or only visit for like an hour a day like almost everyone else, and no point in tripfagging if you're only gonna make like 5 posts a day.

Out of curiosity, does anyone else forget about a lot of 4chan stuff? I started going on /v/ back in 2011, but I only have a few vague memories of stuff from that year, like /v/'s reaction to Megaman Legends 3 being cancelled. I used to have a lot of pics and stuff from that year, but I lost it all due to malware.

>>413420321
the sites culture has been stagnating for years now, memes used to come and go and we are stuck in a rut.

Desu posting was an example of one that stuck around a while but is mostly gone, it's where you end every post with -desu and usually had an image of the rozen maiden doll that had two different eye colors.

I knew this place was gone when people starting getting banned for simply saying "nigger" or some innocuous bullshit.

'06 fag reporting in. I don't usually post on /v/ because it's too fast for anything funny to be posted. Every once in a while something good is posted, but usually it's just shitposts and LOL threads. Then again most of the stuff that used to be posted on this board would just be considered cringe by today's standard.

/co/ was going to hit the fan eventually given the current audience popular western cartoons bring in.

/m/ is my safe haven of slow board that talks about anime, but I also like Toku so that's a plus as well.

/z/ doesn't exist any more and neither does the picture of the dick being stung by bees so there's that.

past that the rest of the boards you listed you're completely right. The saddest one was probably /b/ since it laughed at /r9k/ in it's early stages, then became /r9k/ with all the facebook posting and it being a box to just deposit porn into.

/v/ is the worst place to have oldfag threads because most of you guys on this board came here around 2011 or 2012 yet blame newfags for all the problems of this website.

I got here around that time myself, and the thing is that most of my fun memories of /v/ are from that time period. Stuff like Ace of Spades, Synchtube, the Human Revolution hype, etc. I don't feel that /v/ really has stuff like that anymore these days.

You people forget that what makes 4chan (and every site with discussions) alive are people.
You shouldn't lose hope and let tide of shitposting swallow you. Fight back. It won't be fair fight, and you probably won't win, but it's still better than going along with the flow. Don't let idiots dictate what you can say and what you cannot.
Prevail. Stand up. If worst comes to worst, smile in the face of impending demise, and remember all good times you had on 4chan.

While I don't really care about what opinions people have here, and I don't really have a "side" myself, I do feel that /v/ generally argues about politics too much these days. I think the "/v/ - The Vidya" era was more fun than all the politics on /v/ these days.
>>
>>413423282
Or maybe you just refuse to realize that being an oldfag doesn't excuse you from being the cause of what you hate about this website now. It's easy to blame newfags because it means you won't have to accept that maybe the website's userbase and culture gradually changed overtime. All you do is brag about how awesome things were before some event like GG ruined everything, even though /v/ was filled with plenty of threads about mocking SJWs and video game journalism before that.

I miss the fact that this was once a place you didn't get judged by social status and having hobbies outside the norm but on post quality and contributions nobody cared how you were or what autistic shit you were getting up too in your thread. Now you've got people on any of the big boards shitting on anything they see outside of societal norms and unironically arguing using points of who's social life is better to win arguments while just refurbishing the same stale meme's over and over again. It's this normalfag shit I and I'd imagine many others arrived here to avoid and I feel many autist's who contributed to a lot of OC here have just given up on this place and stay in the smaller boards and don't bother anymore with places like /v/.

Dont feed the trolls idiots, stop responding to the mother will die in her sleep posts. Stop responding to the anime avatar niggers. Stop responding to the /pol/ threads, anti /pol/ threads and so on. No posting in the threads calling them fags does not help. Literally just don't post in it.
