where is everyone posting the porn now? on tumblr certainly it isn't.
>>
I'm honestly not sure. The only thing i can think of is discord servers, but I never touch that shit since I'd rather a server from here but I can't seem to find one. (Maybe we could make one to solve for the dead board?)

It's either that or shared Google drives
>>
>>2627434
Twitter, both the artists and the reposters / aggregators
>>
>>2627438
Anyone know of any good twitter account scraping tools so I can skip all the whiny SJW tweets and just get the art?

There are site call " https://newtumbl.com " to replace old tumblr.

They seem to start create it since tumblr announce it banhammer to all porn. It was make to fully support for nsfw. The site itself stil in development state. Interface look similar to tumblr but add many function which tumblr doesn't have.

The down site is that not many people know about this site. Even myself only know about it last month. So currently not many artist use newtumbl.com yet.

You can't make new threads here without some control freak throwing a fit. On top of that, there's a limit to how many threads you can start across the site. Starting a thread here is just shooting yourself in the foot. Right? You make a new thread here and it sits here for weeks or months or even a whole year. Because it's so slow.
And nobody participates in threads anyways, except to bump it.
Freak'n contribute or LET IT DIE! Don't bump threads that have been inactive for 2 weeks.

Somehow the board picked up a mentality that expects to be spoon feed. The BS community rules are BS and aren't reinforced anyways. How many threads here are just. Bump. Bump. Bump. Share this. Share this. I want. I want.
What's the point of starting a thread with X number of images if nobody else is going to participate? I'll tell you what. It pushes the thread off faster when it's all 1 person.
It's not 2008 anymore. 4chan isn't designed for 1-man image dumps.
>>
>>2627676
You're completely right, man. But how do you suppose we fix it?

I'd say we start a group of people who are willing to contribute to threads and treat the board right so it eventually gets across people's minds that they need to do things a bit differently. Dont know how down for that people will be though.
>>
>>2627680
That's called fascism. And we already did that with the Nazi rulez sticky, that probably only drove more people away. Considering the fact that, before it became a sticky, people were protesting the idea of "catalog curators" who get off by punishing active posters and policing threads to "correct" behaviors.

Imo, there's too many autistic anons with no social skills that like to play hallway monitor. Imposing in on every thread just to shut it down. Who care's if it's a request! Who cares if it's a duplicate topic. You've been burning bridges all these years, it's no wonder /y/ has less than 300 posts a day. Other Boards are in the 1000s. /mlp/ averages to 4000 posts. And the really active boards like /v/ and /vg/ get 100000 posts a day. Put them on a graph together, you can't even see /y/.
It's a wonder the admins haven't deleted this board for being a waste of space.
It's the 9th least active board on the site.
You. Need. To. Let. People. Post. However. They. Want.

People are turning straight. Gay people no longer exist.

>>2627434
saurce tho?
>>
>>2627676
you can literally create a thread about anything here AS LONG AS IT FOLLOWS THE FUCKING RULES OF THE BOARD.

in short:
1) DRAWN porn of ONLY MALES from FICTION ONLY
2) ALWAYS start a thread with MULTIPLE IMAGES
3) no request threads (see 2)

>>2627706
people following rules is not fascism, gb2/pol/
>>
>>2627434
-Twitter (just google "*artist name* twitter"). Then go through your favorite artist's likes to discover new yaoi/bara artists.
-rule34.paheal.net
>>
Didn't know following the rules and trying to set an example for others was fascism. I guess a majority of the people from my childhood and even people I look up to now are fascists. Lmao.
>>
>>2627724
>Herp-a-durp, I think a thread is just a platform object created by an individual and not a dialogue between 2 or more.

Like, why do you even try? You know you have autism. You know you're socially inept. How much hand holding do you need to get it through your head that rules are not instructions. They're not regulations. And nobody wants to suffer through your one-sided conversations where you dictate "the point"; especially if you're no the one that instigated it. Get a clue.

Honestly, there's just a way bigger audience for straight or lesbian porn than there is for yaoi and such. No denying that. I love me some anime bois fucking, but most artists find they get more attention and horny commission money from drawing big titty waifu #3826919

Piss off, newfag. This is why this fucking board is a hellscape of low quality content and retarded posters. When fucking /h/ and /aco/ has better threads, it's really saying something.

The reason this board is so shit is because no one wants to post actual good content. no more doujins, no translations, no exclusive art. just lots of e-begging and whining. And that's a problem that's not exclusive to /y/ considering how dead every other homoboard is on the internet.

Let's try a post without drama - and without trousers - just search "tumblr alternatives", you will find some informative articles on the subject
>>
>>2627842
great problem solving skills. Did you goggle that too?
>>
>>2627831
Not spoonfed. There's literally no content because any retard can easily find gay porn just by googling. There's just no reason to have /y/ anymore. It's not like /h/ where there's a million artists pumping out stuff so there's actually movement in boards because people are sharing things. /y/ is fucking dead because there's like five artists that people actually care about- and they barely pump out interesting content that are always fanart so there's no discussion at all. There's a reason why the drive threads were so successful. People just dump and gtfo. Forcing discussion is the reason why the camp buddy thread is so fucking retarded, as well as it being a new IP.
>>
>>2627890
Obviously you're missing the point of a social platform. "Why go to a party when I can drink alone?"
>>
>>2627898
>/y/ is a social platform
it's an image dumping board at its core. it's not fucking /v/ or /co/
>>
>>2627904
Then why don't you go jack-off in the corner and stop worrying about what everyone else is doing.
>>
>>2627434
pixiv is a good place, if you know how to find find what you want

well, if we want to do / and / a more active place I guess we should do this from a place to create meme or talk about the new in yaoi stories
the "request for drawings" thread is good so new talents are made known.
idk???????
>>
>>2627906
haha, nice comeback. this board is always going to be dead.
>>
>>2627434
Am I naive for genuinely thinking we'd at least have a decent tumblr alternative by this point? Twitter is dogshit considering there's no handy way of sorting through an artist's drawings. Everywhere else is censored one way or another. Patreon will probably remove NSFW content by the end of the year too. Fuck this gay earth

Haha, right? I thought I actually set down a good way to try and get a bit more movement in the thread. But it turns out its fascism, lmao. Jumping to conclusions isn't going to help the board either. (My apologies for my bad english, I'm not in a position where I can get someone to correct it)

Shameless plug

i do a lot of writing requests, since i can't draw very well. i think content creators should use /y/ more, i get a lot of my writing ideas from here and it's fun to discuss it with people. keeps the board moving when you actually talk with people on it. still very slow going, but i'm okay with the pace.

Patreon will not do that, because they make ACTUAL money directly from the NSFW artists. The entire Patreon business model is them taking 5% of everything the creators make, they would directly, immediately loose a huge chunk of their money.

It's not some nebulous "people will stop using the site" like it was with Tumblr
>>
>>2628006
If Patreon actually does this they would lose me as a supporter for sfw artists too. I wouldn't use Patreon anymore and would try to find a different way to support the artist I like.
>>
>>2628079

Same. I've frequented this board for several years, it feels the same to me and has always been a slower board.

Yaoi is incredibly niche. I personally enjoy about 25% of artists and their work.

Translations are pretty shoddy unless you really enjoy the art. Western artists focus on taking something already created and drawing those characters nude.

Nothing feels 100% original anymore. Most works don't hit the spot.

I always hope to find an artist who likes my work and maybe team up to create some new, quality work, but alas, it has not happened as of yet.
>>
>>2628006

No, I don't think this makes you naive.

I'm also confused by other social media platforms and outlets for creators. (Facebook, YouTube, etc.)

If there are any alternatives out there, let all the anons know.
>>
A lot of the artists and people who consume /y content are female and 4chan has a reputation for being activity hostel to females period. The board was faster when Tumblr was still a thing because people could just repost shit from there. We have no active artist's making art and hoping it gets posted to this shit hole website.

Plus 80% of women into /y content just read fan fiction instead of looking at art. Much more encouraging environment and archiveofourown is a solid platform for it.

Same here, long long time /y/ user and I actually like that it's not as hectic as the other boards, you get time to find things and answer and contribute. It's good this way.
I don't think it's dead. I can't really see a difference. There's less manga noodle people and more realistic pretty stuff which I heartfully agree with.

(filler image is important too)
>>
>>2627434
Lmao I've heard that PornHub actually wants to buy Tumblr. Looks like they've found a great opportunity to get an another porn business and if so then great. I just wish those rumors were true.
>>
>>2627434
MyReadingManga is even worse now. It used to post some pretty good djs, but now its mainly made of furry shit and fujo cancer.

Anyone know the source of OP's image? Pleaaaase

One thing I've always wondered is why with all the gay shit that can be made using Koikatsu or Honey Select or similar games, how come there has never been a thread on either /y/ or /cm/?

I'm dying for fujoshi to get on the 3d modeling train so I can see some decent gay shit (and not just fagging it up in anime girl avatars) in VRChat.
>>
>>2629000

I searched both of these "games" and I found the problem. Anyone would have to spend far too much time downloading the games and setting them up for "gay shit". In the end, anyone could've found several better alternatives and jerked off about 5 times.

Not worth the time.

Only if you have shit internet speeds or are too brain dead to locate an all-in-one torrent.
>>
>>2627829
>just lots of e-begging and whining
Yep. As demonstrated by >>2627639
People constantly taking taking taking and never giving anything is why it's now dead. No wonder people fuck off to 'exclusive' sites where you have to 'pay' for your membership by also sharing.
>>
Wow, this place is a freakshow. I literally respect none of you.

If you hate "sjws", or people who dont hate black people, don't look at their fucking art or read their writing. Simple as that.
