Hello, /animu/'s BO here, I looked at the "differences between similar boards" page and read something that may give people the wrong idea about my board.

The parts I'm referring to are "and the posters are free to post as they please, regardless of if it has anything to do with anime or not" and "Seeks to be an anime-themed /b/".

I do actually intend for the board to be a place where you can discuss Japanese media such as anime or manga, our rules are simply not as strict of that as /a/, I allow what some may call "funposting" but that doesn't mean I'd allow threads without any purpose and which resemble spam such as what can be seen on /b/. So I'd say the current state of the board would much more resemble a board like /v/; a place where both formal discussion and lighthearted shitposting can be found.

The reason for this part being inaccurate may be because the board used to have a different owner who may have wanted it to have a different purpose but I have been the current BO for almost a year now. If you could change that part of the board description to something more fitting that would be very much appreciated.

Board Owner appreciation thread

What subject says.

I think board owner has done great job in creating a non-biased board list, alternative to the one presented by 8chan's inherent system. Since 8chan was all about user-moderated boards, why not have an user-moderated boardlist as well?

/dir/ is closing for now

When those around you aren't willing to take a stand for what's right, sometimes you have to be the one to strike first.

As some of you may be aware, there's an issue involving /gamergatehq/'s board owner, and whether or not he may be an FBI informant. What is known are these things by his own admissions: he keeps files on those that post on his board, and that he's good with an FBI agent on a first name basis. He used this dossier as well as cross-referencing post histories made on his board with the information he gathered on these people and shared some or all of this information with an FBI agent. Couple this with the deal he made with Hotwheels in which he's allowed exceptional treatment in the form of extra pages in return for not fucking up his board, and we have a bit of a dilemma.

Hotwheels said that Acid's admission that he wasn't an informant was good enough here.



Now, I don't know the exact details of the situation. I've heard that he was swatted, and that it was a simple knock and questioning. I've also heard that there wasn't anything resembling a swatting called in, but tips regarding the BO trading some rather illicit information on another board. This is all irrelevant.

What is relevant is that HW just gave someone implicit permission to use a popular board regarding a controversial topic to combine personal information and posting history of users and report them to the FBI.

I don't know whether or not Hotwheels is apathetic or what's going on, but recently, he's been content to lead from the back and not address any sort of issues involving his user base or anything more than the technical end of the site. In 2014, I respected him since he was much more of a man of the people than Moot was, happy to engage users, to directly address issues brought up by those supporting his site even if they were on non-global boards, and show that he was one of us. That's gone now. He had an opportunity to show that he was willing to lead from the front once more and handle something as egregious as a popular board being treated as a honeypot, and he instead chose to listen when the one involved said he "dindu nuffin," even after Hotwheels gave his board preferential treatment in return for not being a complete fuckup.

I created /dir/ as an attempt to make the site better, as a supplement to /boards/ and the board.html page. Something to benefit the site and the user base as a whole. I'll keep the information I amassed, this isn't a nuke. But I can't keep supporting the site as long as the admin is going to allow board owners to abuse their privileges and inform on users that post anything controversial. A tolerance for honeypots is not something I will tolerate. You all deserve better than what Hotwheels is giving you right now and /dir/ will remain mothballed until he finds some of the spine that made him so respected in 2014 and stands up for anons.

Edit: /dir/ is not closing. This is now locked.

Missing categories

There are some categories that would be useful to not be misc.

First of all. Directories under general. >>>/dir/ >>>/boards/ and any number of other redirection based boards would be here. Not much, but I could see this being a really relevant category that people would use a lot.

The "I don't want to talk just give me the goods" category if you will. >>>/n/ might be useful with it's format here.

Next. Meta. You know what this will include. >>>/operate/ >>>/meta/ obviously. But also things like >>>/polmeta/

There are a ton of board specific metaboards and it would be a shame not to have them in a directory.

R: 3 / I: 0 / P: 3 [R] [G] [-]


What about >>>/e/?

Maybe rename "Fetish" to "Sexual Interests" or something more general? Fetish = "a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc.", for example some yurifags object strongly to having yuri labelled as a fetish.

Or maybe just "Adult" like halfchan does. (What about SFW boards that may be themed around a sexual interest, like a SFW /cuteboys/, /y/ or /u/?)
