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...

4chan being the way it is, transient and anonymous, it's susceptible to revisionism. I'm just wondering if oldfags perception of 4chan is at odds with the newfags?

Like /b/ for example, there's this perception that /b/ was always a porn dump but I remember /b/ actually having random discussions and happenings amongst the garbage and the garbage was only partially porn.

Who even updates this? I could swear KoG posted a complete version sometime last year.
It has some of the most easily fixable holes due to how well archive /a/ is. For example, post No.99999999 is stated to be "unknown" even though one could easily find it using the archives.
While I do admit that single GET posts are indeed a piece of history, they're not very helpful for new users to get a feel of what faggotry used to occur around here. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but the mere text that used to be stored in the chanarchive is priceless.
Also, fuck you Jason Scott why won't you release that bloody goldmine!

>>2100449
A fair share of rather new people still claim that /b/ is their home board and even try to associate themselves with the term (for example, by also calling other users /b/tards), just to comply with the revisionist view that they're part of the "real" or "original" 4chan.

Better the golden age be lost, these newfags would find a way to ruin it anyway.

>>2100476
If you were on /a/ at the time, the board was going so fast that 99999999 was purged off before anyone could see it. It's not in an archive, and nobody took a snapshot of it. Also, the giant gaping hole in the middle is due to an archive failure that happened last year where all posts before about 128000000 were deleted permanently from the main /a/ archive. Since then, older archives had backups of /a/, but the backups only went to about 113000000, so any posts between those two numbers were lost forever.

If you have any information pertaining to anything I just mentioned, feel free to prove me wrong and show me otherwise.

Does anyone want to set a week to read a VN and then talk about it on /qa/?
It seems really difficult to have quality VN discussion these days...
>>
Sure, we just need to decide the VN and week, Also maybe people have either forgotten what's so good about VNs or have never played one. In that case they just need a good VN to hook them (back) in.
>>
The VN should also be relatively easy to get/free.
>>
You should announce it a few days ahead of time so that people with slower internet connections have time to download it
>>
Sure, as long as it's free

Alright /jp/ it's time for us to play this indie game called "Hisoutensoku" made by some Chinese man called Zun!

How to set it up?

https://mega.nz/#!Xu5w3ZCA!3qOLthCfKsr7LJh0N5pWS1VcWXcjWQGsRuOPJW4KzjU Ready to play brainlet version of Soku:

1. Drag and drop the contents of the .rar somewhere
2. Find Configex123 which should be located in the 12.3 folder and edit [th105path] part so it links to the location of your 10.5 folder
3 Launch the game
4. Launch Sokuroll

And now you can connect to anyone who has either port forwarded or is in a private network like hamachi or zerotier

Discord to find some players or alternatively hamachi/zerotier/direct ip in thread: 73Fm4Rp

>very, very long time for the halo effect around lights to fade
This is the one reason I'm hesitant about lasik I'm worried about how annoying it will be to have that halo around lights. I've heard from others that it's nearly impossible to see with them. So my questions would be how long did it take for them to fade for you, and did it affect looking at computer screens and the like.
>>
If you accept medical advice from anonymous posters you've failed as a human being and should just kill yourself.

>>2100807
first off, i cant believe someone saved that
second off, i cant believe you actually bothered cropping it
>>2100808
third, not where i currently live. all the chads are 6'3". I would probably have a slutty bitch girlfriend by now if i was 3 inces taller than 6'0. but im not

hence why im a blonde gothic shota.
>>
>>2100810
I know how it is. I remember turning off all the lights and lying on my bed face down while closing my eyes until the pain put me to sleep. I reallly don't care about physical pain anymore (I guess meditation does that).
>>2100850
Good post.
>>
>>2100844
It's noticeable but I don't think it's really blinding. It's kinda annoying to read neon signs for a little while but you get used to it as it clears up a little. Three months later was about when I first noticed the effect fading. Computer screens had a double-vision effect for a week or so if I'm recalling correctly. I'll be two years post in October and the glow is almost completely gone.

Assuming you won't have any complications it's absolutely worth it. I liked the way my glasses looked on my face but holy hell were they annoying between the dust, the oils creeping up the nosepieces onto the lenses, and the difficult cleaning. Lasik took a lot of stress out of my life.

Everyone can see how much race baiting and propaganda has risen since 2016. I refuse to believe that the board communities are just radicalizing to this extent, or that the exodus of edgy right-wing teens from plebbit's purges is totally accountable. Things are so forced, and the spread is so cancerous, it's saddening as hell. I think that some group of agents (or whatever you feel like pointing towards) is determined to piss in the swimming pool just to prevent legit dialogue.

For kicks, go through the last 5-10 posts for each thread in your favorite slow-medium speed board, and you'll usually see that there's one pointless and racist baiting non-sequitur. Someone is going through the catalog and just relentlessly race baiting multiple threads at a time for the sake of it. Notwithstanding the pervasive spread of allowed /pol/-like threads on other boards, which might be accounted for by the exodus I mentioned, you can see that someone is highly motivated to shitpost and bait as effectively as possible. I just saw this on /fa/ - they skip threads where there's no way to relate it to race or culture, but make a one sentence to one paragraph whenever possible, usually about jews or black penis. People are getting paid to do this, probably on shifts so that it doesn't stop or reveal the time zone.

Mods are probably doing their best, sadly the platform just can't handle propaganda and 4chan's exploded in popularity. I'm just curious if other people have had the same thoughts, or if they've noticed same shit happening. I don't think it has a purpose other than to disrupt and prevent dialogue. It's seemed obvious to me for years, and most sane people have probably stopped posting because of it anyway.

/qa/ is not customer support
go back there
>>
Yes, I notice it on more than one boards. I doubt anyone is paid or part of some organization though. Conspiracy-wise It's more likely that there's just a discord somewhere and the posters you see have been encouraged to shit up boards via "redpilling".
Even if they were paid it's not constructive to attribute the shitposting to some external force, it removes the agency of the idiots who do it and invites trolling. I think it's more probable that it's just chronic shitposters who have too much time on their hands. The possibility that there's a lone schizo out there, probably somewhere in Australia, exists too.
