Discussion on new rule below

(for real today)

Welcome to 8chan's board for furry related discussion and content.

The idea here is to foster discussion and content creation as we share our interests. In contrast most furry communities tend to prioritize being porn dumps.

If others are a porn boards with discussion, /fur/ is a discussion board with porn.

If you're interested in porn dumps or a fetish thread without close relation to furry, take a look at the board >>>/fp/

(Static pages aren't working right now so the rules are written out here)

//---------------------------------//

Rules:

1. No excessive, irredeemable shitposting or derailment

1.b. Leave real life politics at the door

2. Don't make excessive dump threads, particularly for porn; this isn't e621

3. Porn/fetishes stick to a handful of threads. >>>/fp/ is for added specificity

4. Keep trip/name/avatarfagging to a minimum if you have no reason to do it.

5. No doxxing and no calling for raids and personal armies.

6. Keep original post images relatively tame. Explicit imagery may be spoilered. (keeps the catalog somewhat tasteful)

Etiquette:

1. Use the catalog

2. If you're thinking of making a porn dump do so on /fp/ or use the gfur or sfur general instead

3. Unless there is good reason, make threads for a series rather than a specific character. Doing so only for porn is not such a reason.

4. Try putting some effort into the start of your thread to spur discussion

5. Spoiler images others may find uncomfortable in threads where they aren't expected.

Modus Operandi:

We try to be flexible and give situations time to breathe before acting.

Rules are not always strictly enforced, and at times etiquette may be raised to a rule.

Please bring up any questions, worries, or complaints in the meta thread. Feedback is always encouraged.

Remember to make use of the report system.

//---------------------------------//

Feedback would be greatly appreciated, as it helps the board strive more. This board will grow one day, and we only wish to make it better.

Specific threads that get a pass have been used as excuses for others that are just dumps, so I'm looking at a rule that does some enforcing while explaining the leeway we give things:

6. If a porn dump is made and develops no relevant discussion (thus becoming more than a dump) in a week it is subject to bumplock or deletion. Broad generals are one exception.

By relevant I mean it isn't simply exclaiming your feelings over the fetish or how much you want to fuck X character, and it's directly tied to furry. Most of any talk about werewolves is going to be furry related, but wanting to be farted on applies to anime or anything else just fine.

The avian thread has talk about bird designs and variety in pictures, but that pig thread is just a porn dump of mostly one character.

The Freya thread talks about the character and story of the game she was in, while that Judy thread was just a dump.

Of course, pointing out the /fit/ thread is fair. It got its pass from being very old as well as having a lot of SFW, so we tossed the particularly dedicated OP a bone. However, this rule going through means it has to face the same standard.

Share your feedback if you have any.

the discord shilling is more obnoxious than the porn dumps tbh. discords take away from the board activity and make it look dead. which means less chance for people to participate with the board.

excessive discord shilling doesnt suit /fur/. let's face it, we dont have a big enough board for it to not make a big hit on activity. I've seen tons of discussions or posts that get wasted talking about a board thread outside of the board, because its in their own splinter bubble discord.

 No.25230

The bigger issue is shit-threads that can kill a good thread. That's why /fur/ was condensing threads like porn dumps in the first place, not for some autistic shit about mod-approved rule about "relevant" discussion.

Case in point, I just noticed a thread on the verge of death and archived the first /fur/ game thread 5 mins ago before some furfag pushed it off the catalog, go check and it's not there anymore.

https://archive.is/QRm2Y

Now the OP has to make that all over again, and while it's their own fault they werent active enough with their own thread it's gone.

Shit-threads can take away from good threads by the front pages exposure because no one wants to go through the whole catalog and people probably only care to look through the first few rows of the catalog, or maybe use the search box.

I think we should do something about dup threads now that we're getting threads pushed off the catalog more often. Look at this faggot who just bumped the old YP thread because the faggot who made the new YP thread made it before the bump limit. Now we have 2 of them on the front page.

I'm not sure about content disappearing, but the 404s are due to Codemonkey's caching system fucking up and generally being shit.

Added some links to the comic thread as a sort of homebase for the board. like what was planned for the /lit/ thread

Wasn't able to act fast enough to save the big dump of 10%+ being pushed off the catalog by new threads, but some advice to anyone doing StoryTimes, start archiving and linking big story dumps. Archive.is is good for saving discussion but bad for saving pictures long term, they often 404 images so use wayback machine https://archive.org/web/ for saving image heavy threads.

Maybe this will encourage some more furry comic discussion threads and comic dumps, and help out exposure in the main thread.

How about: make one cyclical containment thread for them all to shill in and fight each other for attention (and our amusement).

political threads, not /pol/ threads have become an issue because theyre doing a shit job on serving as containment threads like what was advocated for in previous meta threads. right now it's just drumming up agitation everytime anything tangentially political gets posted because anons cant control their autism. banning political threads wouldnt change that the same anons are just being as much of faggots in other threads.

>The bigger issue is shit-threads that can kill a good thread

Which is part of the reason for the rule. "shit threads" are more or less what I defined as the problem.

>that's why /fur/ was condensing threads like porn dumps in the first place

Which this rule is an enforcement of.

> not for some autistic shit about mod-approved rule about "relevant" discussion

That's a bit hypocritical. You just said "shit threads" are a problem, so I can misconstrue your words similarly as "you want anon-approved 'relevant' discussion". In fact I can better do so because it's far more vague.

I gave several examples so keep those in mind.

>Shit-threads can take away from good threads by the front pages exposure because no one wants to go through the whole catalog and people probably only care to look through the first few rows of the catalog, or maybe use the search box.

Exactly. And "shit threads" that go against the whole purpose of the board shouldn't get precedence over others.

I want to effectively discourage and contain unsubstantial porn dumps/fetish threads while still being relatively chill. A fair grace period before taking action should do a better job. They get a chance to have it for X time, but knowing it will just be deleted should urge them to use a general.

Though, it should be said that too many of them at once would warrant a few immediate deletions.

I need help

I am the OP of the Albedo thread (>>9773) and I am addressing this post to the mods/admin because I thought this would be the most appropriate place to do so

This thread is my first one (been lurking for a few months) and I've used an app called "Ourobouros" in order to upload the comic because it's handy and easy to use.

But a week ago, I tried to post the "New Albedo N°2" and after doing so, I waited for a replie. But after a few days I checked the thread on a computer and my posts weren't there...

So I attempted to post again on PC, but when I tried, an error box showed me : This file already exist

I don't know what is the cause to this issue and don't want to make it worse, so help would be much appreciated

Don't want to redo all the thread, plz

We altered the rule to more specifically cover bodily fluids like cum, since it's hard describe what is considered tasteful without getting overly specific. That and the others thought it would be better to leave more tasteful OP images to board etiquette.

Personally I think there should be some action to encourage the etiquette (considering most who frequent furry boards aren't used to the idea) and we should be capable of making the judgement calls, but we've been giving this a try.

For now if you see an OP that you think should be spoilered, bring it up in the thread. If we see some consensus it will be spoilered.

If that isn't effective at all we'll reassess this. Or now if you guys want to talk about it.


 No.27656

>>25184

There doesn't need to be another rule added for dumps. If you're worried about anons coming in and only making porn dump then this won't change anything other than being able to delete threads a lot faster. Fetish dumps will die on their own with no one else contributing and the rest of the board calling them out on their shit taste. The same applies to threads like the femboy and X character threads. In the case of X character threads, they might turn into discussion, but not always at once. It might take a few weeks, even a month, or never at all, but the chance is there.

If you do go through with this rule, what if an fetish dump thread talks a lot about artist and writers in the fandom or even personal projects they're involved in? Would the thread get deleted for being a dump or would it stay because it has discussion?


 No.27659

>>27656

>If you're worried about anons coming in and only making porn dump then this won't change anything other than being able to delete threads a lot faster.

I believe there is more to it, but that's half the point anyway. Dumps bumping off other threads is a problem considering the speed of the board. They take forever to fall off and are so easy to bump without effort they can stay around longer.

Also, if people have to be conscious that a thread will be deleted/saged if it is just a porn dump then some should be inclined to try and present it in a way to start discussion, should they not?

There are three points I'd like to hit, if possible. Keeping the number of dumps/fetish threads on the board managed, giving enough room for one to grow into furry discussion/content creation, and keeping the priority of discussion on people's minds. I want to work that out in an agreeable way before making any decision.

>The same applies to threads like the femboy and X character threads

The femboy thread is actually an example of the opposite. It was made a while ago and the OP was told to check the general instead. Then it got bumped later by someone else and they were told the same thing. Then some more rebellious folks came later and continued to bump it, and it still gets bumped. As much as I personally love femboys, it's just an extra dump and it's hard to see possible discussion in it having anything specifically to do with furry unless it's artist talk.

>In the case of X character threads, they might turn into discussion, but not always at once. It might take a few weeks, even a month, or never at all, but the chance is there.

Of course, I did mention one myself, though it's not a dump at all. Generally they aren't inherently dumps. They have to be introduced as such or immediately dumped in by the OP. A few images wouldn't be enough to jump on it as such, though anons should consider making them about the series first.

>If you do go through with this rule, what if an fetish dump thread talks a lot about artist and writers in the fandom or even personal projects they're involved in? Would the thread get deleted for being a dump or would it stay because it has discussion?

It would stay.

Alternatively, what if there was a max number of dumps/fetish threads allowed on the board (beside the generals), and if another is added the rule will begin to apply to one of them?


 No.27664

>Alternatively, what if there was a max number of dumps/fetish threads allowed on the board (beside the generals), and if another is added the rule will begin to apply to one of them?

Sounds complicated and very hard to communicate with the kind of people who make dump threads. Is there a way to push an anchored thread to the bottom so that good threads aren't 404'd? Or maybe just keep a buffer area where anchored threads near the bottom get deleted instead of good threads 404ing?


 No.27676

>>27659

>some rebellious folks came later and bumped it

>rebellious

we already had told people that the femboy thread would be okay after the meta thread about relaxing rules, we specifically talked about letting the thread be as long as it had activity and to merge it to the general if it didnt. There wasnt anyone "rebelling" by making it more active and >>27656 is right about it taking weeks or months for any thread.

Going back on something that was already discussed and agreed on is bad form and will make anons lower their opinion on the moderation (and the board)

Jumping to delete and bumplocking so many threads last time nearly killed the board, a grace period of 2days or even a week to talk about "relevant" shit is wishful thinking, the board isnt that active. We still dropped to 0PPH recently.

Maybe in the beginning when /furry/ users first migrated the board was more active and bustling but a lot of those anons have left and it's been squandered by bad and outright autistic decisions, to push everyone into mod-approved generals (not user-approved, which is a big difference.) and to shut down discussions because it wasnt "relevant".

>max dump threads

you will never get this to work so dont even try. the only thing this will do is turn off users from the board who either A) didnt get the first-dump first-serve treatment, so all future dumps are deleted or B) got someone elses dump shoved off the board. both of options are just going to get the users to hate the mods and the other users.


 No.27679

>>27664

No way to hard anchor threads instantly to the bottom, anchored threads have to work their way through the catalog and every time a thread is bumped the anchored thread slides one more notch as far as I know.

Early 404 was proposed as a solution a while ago to deal with these sorts of threads from taking up space of another. The only difference to that and what we do now is that we do the same thing as early-404 manually, by saging and deleting the threads later so theres a little buffer.

For reasons unknown, we're still not using the early 404 option. yet we have >>20374 sitting at 0 replies at page 11.


 No.27724

>>27664

Does it? Problem is with the type of people who usually make dumps is that they probably haven't checked the rules or etiquette to begin with. It's a furry board so they expect porn dumps to be the norm. Granted that's an assumption.

>Is there a way to push an anchored thread to the bottom so that good threads aren't 404'd?

Practically, no. A script could theoretically do it, but that would inflate the post count.

>Or maybe just keep a buffer area where anchored threads near the bottom get deleted instead of good threads 404ing?

It garnered 5 reports not even political derails get that much and complaints in the thread itself.

The thread topic is shallow, but it became centered around someone's opinion on women. Better it sinks or has a chance to turn into something decent than to have it continuously bumped with an aggressive off-topic argument like that.

The sheer number of posts to that effect makes it unrealistic to filter unless IDs are on, and activating IDs in a thread to filter one argument is a misuse of the feature. Also too many people are eager to latch onto the bait.


 No.32045

>It garnered 5 reports not even political derails get that much and complaints in the thread itself

Sigh. I can imagine why. While I will grudgingly admit that thread may not have been the best place to talk about it, it was still a perfectly valid point of discussion given some of the other posts that preceded the deleted posts. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, causes butthurt like someone venturing non-standard opinions on gender dynamics, so I suppose I should have seen it coming, but I was not going to let the people who would shout it down with cries of "Misogyny!" go unchallenged. They've been unchallenged too long, frankly.

>activating IDs in a thread to filter one argument is a misuse of the feature

Perhaps, but I don't think having IDs on everywhere would be a bad thing, really - helps prevent confusion and nips people manufacturing consensus by replying to themselves in the bud. IDs aren't the same thing as namefagging, and can be a valuable administrative tool for isolating stupid shitstirrers from people who are actually looking for a conversation/debate but simply happen to have controversial opinions.

I'm sure if you turned IDs on you'd have people complaining, but I personally think those people are either barking up the wrong trees anyway or are part of the "worthless shitstirrer" group to begin with.


 No.32054

>>32045

I don't care about IDs at all but I think the mods should choose the option that would attract more people to the board, this is a 3 digit board so unlike /pol/ or /b/ it don't need more features to "avoid confusion" since there is not so much people talking in the same thread.

Do be careful what you wish for. I would honestly rather have a smaller population of not-retards than a huge population of mostly retards that drown out the not-retards with shitposting and cheap bait. (Yes, I know asking for not-retards in the furry fandom is a tall order at times.)


 No.32057

>>32056

I agree, and to be honest I think /fur/ qualitywise is far better than /furry/ used to be, but a small board is fragile.(though /furry/ moderation got super lazy in their last year before the spam wave)

First /fur/ needs to be THE furry board(since /trash/ is just a porn dump) so the users will never leave(furfags never abandon big communities, just look how FA can do whatever they want) and just then mods can focus in improving the content without fear of alienate the users.

No.

/furry/ was fucking shit at their last year, every thread was spammed by dozens shitposts in a row like "lets yiff, give me telegram", the only active threads were copies from lulz.net, also /furry/ was pretty much /b/ 2.0 with half of threads being contentless shit like "would you anon?" or "I love [insert random character]"

We're looking at managing a child board specifically for porn and fetish talk.That doesn't mean lewd will be forbidden on /fur/, but pure dumps and the more off-topic fetishes would certainly be more at home on the child board.

Making a second board for porn generals runs the risk of diving us into smaller pieces. Not sure if it's a good idea considering there's only an averaging of a hundred anons at the moment. On the other hand, the discussion threads wouldn't get out-shined by the porn dump and hopefully it would stop anons from mindlessly dumping porn in certain threads, like the digimon thread.

If you're going to go through with it, then I say the board should be called /fp/ because the less letters the better.

I don't think the risk is all that high. Some of our lewd threads do fit in here, and the second board would only be for porn. Even anons who only see furry as a collection of fetishes need more than that at times.

>>32805

It would be an 8chan furry-only board with moderation and our scripts for protection/convenience.

Also I didn't say anything about a rule. A rule on porn wouldn't follow immediately after launching the child board. The board would be pointed out, monitored, and decisions made on what develops.

You're pulling the exact same thing as Nadeo did with Trackmania 2. It doesnt matter if its an "official" board its still splitting the community and splitting the activity and guess what, that killed all of their game servers as soon as they tried it.

 No.34774

>>34756

It's not going to become a new rule, but inciting political arguments often leads into violating rule 3.

>3. No excessive, low-effort, irredeemable shitposting or derailment.

Derailment is a big issue on the board, but political derailment is often the worst due to how reactionary responses tend to be and how long arguments last. The end result is a few anons going back and forth, arguing about a topic which isn't related to the thread or board, and never coming to a conclusion. Threads die with anons unable to continue through the politics and leaving. There are places to discuss politics, but /fur/ is not one of them.

That's not to say every political post is banned, but it at least needs to be on-topic and not an essay about how X is shit and why we need Y. There's also no major punishment if derailment happens, but if they can't take a hint after they've been told to stop or their posts have been deleted, then a temp ban will most likely happen.

Two things that could be done: stimulate the board with a project or bring more people to the board. First option is tricky due to motivational issue and possible lack of talent, while the latter is matter of how you get decent anons to come and stay on /fur/. Word of mouth and making stuff for the board to share around while directly linking to the board would be good ways of getting more anons, since the fandom is all about creating original content. Although, there was some talk about posting completed art from the draw and art threads on /fur/ account across different sites, but some anons complained about not wanting their work to be used for shilling and potentially attracting normalfags. If some are alright with having their stuff posted elsewhere, then it's mostly a matter of getting someone new to manage all those accounts.

Anyway, another question that needs to be asked is, "What can we do to improve the board?" and the answer needs to be something other than attracting more anons.

It even said he knew mods at /furry/ which is why it kept being deleted and hidden.

The facts are that he got in good with the mods and then destroyed the board because he couldn't get his poopy paws RP going.

Making an ultimatum to cripple your own thread is hardly a threat, but regardless I need to talk to you about this.

The derail in the TM thread is not drastically off topic nor is it really a derail at this point.

Firstly, threads usually get a set of posts loosely off the mark, but retain their usual flow if they have something to discuss. The very first response to a potential derail should usually be more thread related discussion and requests to stay on topic, not mod intervention.

Secondly, the content from the "derail" opened the door to relevant discussion that could breathe some life into the thread. Did you contribute to that in any way?

I'll be blunt. You've interwoven your identity so much into Telemonsters here that it's near impossible to completely ignore that presence. In the absence of interest and discussion about the show, joking about that autist fixated with it fills the void. By your own word you admit there's little to engage the average viewer.

And yet an opportunity to approach it from a different angle has come up, spurred by curiosity of your own obsession. Critique of the show and dissecting concepts that could be potentially compelling. Contribute. Your notoriety served as a springboard to this and pretty much lined up a fleet of segways.

That said, derails will be taken care of as usual, but that doesn't include jumping the gun. Spiral the thread towards derail and those posts will be removed, but you'd taint telemonster threads even further because of your personal link to them.

Claiming you're someone doesn't make you that person.

Posting chats on programs where you can change your name and not verifying the owner and other details isn't evidence.

Supposedly claiming you're doing something on an anonymous image board, but denying it in person and on the site doesn't make sense does it, anon? But I guess you wouldn't know.

Helping the board owner make the scripts that fight the spam doesn't add up too, but I guess you wouldn't know that either.

I can't speak for the rest of the board, but I can understand you being pissed by it. The real problem with the thread isn't necessarily that there's a lot of lewd, but that almost all of it are just people looking to get free commissions to sate their fetishes rather than requesting any interesting ideas.

Ideally, reforming the draw thread is the better option over creating a new one. There are several interesting requests made by people who think the same thing, so draw for those and ask for more.

You're also throwing out "circlejerk" without foundation when the board has always been gradually growing and seeking to develop a larger userbase.

It WAS better to me.

If you want a post count then go to /trash/ and tell me how it's a better board. People used to come here pre-exodus because they wanted to escape /furry/'s faggotry in one form or another, this board was very tame and relatively SFW compared to what it is now.

>>38452

>Maybe just a "spoiler nsfw"

I don't think that approach would change much. Even then you'd be reading request after request after request and all of them asking for some fetish to be fulfilled. I suppose it's an improvement if you don't have to look at hyper dicks and fatfurs while you do it.

>>38453

That doesn't really work from my experience. I've dug through similar drawthreads before and filled requests, but the only thing that happened is that there was no decent requests left because I filled the only one. There's hardly anyone drawing anything at all yet people keep on requesting the same kind of stuff.

I have to reconsider my previous response. The politics can skirt around with loopholes and seems it need direct addressment to be curbed.

However I'll assert it is "no politics" not "no /pol/."

More specifically, we're looking at "no real life politics." The distinction is to avoid confusion over things in good fun; such as discussing uniforms, setting a WW2 theme for world building, thinking of what dog breeds represent what country, completely fictional political concepts, and so on.

Discourse over politics in reality and preaching political ideologies is the problem to be addressed.

Il use the same example I used last time: The humans and furries thread had several times devolved into politics, only to climb back and use those as boosts in a lot of ways.

Threads with no potential for discussion beyond political fuckery, like the ones this has been an issue in, are going to be trash dead threads without it, anyway, so there is really not much harm in cutting them off.

<am i the only one sick of this now

>oh hey we're adding a new rule now because i say so

This is a case of a few bad apples ruining everything for everyone else. A couple examples the board did fine with was when the CIA was exposed as bronies, or when Poll the parrot was made even got some oc made by people who dont take everything as a serious political issue. Without fail, every political derail was either caused by a shitposter or usually by a lefty sperg. But doesnt mean only political shitpost threads were made by /leftypol/fag like after the hack. the whole "im sorry you got lumped in" was a big one. All of this said, I take issue with how far it will be stretched to twist and ban what you dont like just like with the excessive prudism.

Take the fandom infighting thread, which is what caused this kneejerk reaction. It's barely gotten anywhere even in terms of arguments and already youre freaking out looking to make new rules to impose on everyone. It's relevant to the furry community whether you like it or not. And we've gotten very few threads months apart related to that with some shitposting inbetween. Anchoring is what /fur/ mods already do with political threads and it works fine. When you start banning everyone from even discussing something without being a sperging shitter related to the board then its just as much cancer as 4chans moderation. Id rather have a containment thread for news around the fandom than have another autistic episode of "its not relevant because i say so".

Annnnd another thing. The board has tools already, remember IDs? Try forcing IDs in political threads so anons can filter spergy faggots who post walls of text and cringey dumps, instead of just banning everyone. It worked for the f-list thread. If all you do is kneejerk and ban everything then you're a shitty mod.

I think that as long as the political topics are directly related to the fandom and kept to their own threads then it really isn't a problem. It's actually neat to have a place where furs can discuss this with one another and see where the other side is coming from- in a furry context. People are going to unnecessarily keep starting political shit at cons and getting bans from (insert website here), who knows what things will happen, and it's important that we have a space to ourselves to discuss those things.

Screeching about actual politics to push their ideology is one example of it being irrelevant to the fandom and something I expect from tumblr not anons on 8chan. Threads have been wiped of derailing political shitters many times already but I'll still oppose banning everything related to the topic on the culture war in the fandom.

One of the issues with the political shitters is the massive amount of samefagging to bump threads they want to argue in and use their samefagging (which isnt hard to see) to pretend they have more support than they really do. Never seen that before Something forced IDs for those types of threads will clear right up.

If you head over to the fandom infighting thread but you wont see anyone talking about the actual OP, just fandom infighting in real time. People who just spam politicall memeball images are the ones id classify as political shitters sperging out and throwing every off topic ideological attack and projecting at anyone in the thread. That doesnt mean the thread topic itself is bad, it just attracts aspies.

That's largely because the "fandom infighting" thread was trash, and not worth caring about in the slightest.

It would've, without the politics, fallen off near immediately , with next to no posts, because it's a boring, irrelevant, and dull topic, that the vast majority here don't really give a fuck about because I'd be willing to wager most of us don't actually consider ourselves a part of the "fandom", 'least not the greater fandom as a whole.

Banning from something to be discussed is also something I expect from tumblr, so you dont get a free pass. If you try to shut down discussion then you're no better. All youre doing is assuming shit, but if the thread would fall off without political screeching thats more reason to have a containment thread for furryfandom happenings.

I'm not deep enough in the fandom that I would know about these things without it being posted but clearly there are anons who are, and care enough to post about a growing problem. If you decide to ban it because of yet again more autistic muh relevancy, then what? Where do you expect them to talk about it or at least bring it up for exposure. Theres legitimately no where else except a furry board that this would be "on topic" and be told to fuck off everywhere except maybe /cow/ if they want to document furfaggots.

It's furry, you're just following a bias that its not furry content and just claiming its not relevant as an excuse. There arent huge companies to report news on happenings like on /v/ or world events like on the news, furfag artists happenings are what you get instead. something like in the infighting thread is just as relevant as when anons posted >>10886

When you think about it, they are basically "look what stupid things happened at a convention" threads.

It was toned down a lot in worry that users found consolidating shallow threads (the added moderation despite the reason) to be a turn off, and I've been waiting to see if users would adapt if they were simply given advice on what would be better. And what I've seen is that the few who don't care keep shitty threads on the catalog and encouraging more of the same kind of posting.

So now's a good time to ask, how many of you actually felt uncomfortable with us maintaining the catalog that way?

Come on now. The obsession with consolidating threads began (and hasnt ended) with extreme kneejerking over paranoia with porn. Being a control freak drove away the majority of users leaving /fur/ as a dead board with the only main activity in the Yiff Party thread, for the majority of time. Now you want to extend your reasons for shoving people into a box again over yet more kneejerking. Gee I wonder why /fur/ is viewed as a shithole from everyone on the outside.

I dont agree. The anons who made the fandom infighting threads as easily separable from the conventions thread was better off. Not everything on imageboards is a good idea to "consolidate to one thread", asking if someone's going to the convention is a huge difference in a topic than the cultural war infighting. Had they made the posts in the conventions thread it would have been turned into a sea of political screeching to deal with every time someone visited the thread, making it unusable for people who just want to talk about the conventions without infighting. You could say the autism is a derail but it's pretty much just as much of a derail in its own thread when people start throwing irrelevant personal attacks based on politics.

The thread would constantly have excessive deletion, bans or would doom the whole conventions thread to be killed by a bumplock. Where as instead the topics were different threads, infighting got bumplocked and conventions thread is still around, with no autistic derailment needing to be cleaned up. Now that doesnt mean the multiple threads every time there was an update on the situation was a good idea either, with the old thread still being on the catalog. If one extra thread about the infighting every couple of months is such a "huge problem" then that says more about the state of this board than anything else.

That reminds me, could that thread just become cyclical? I'm tired of having to hide the new one whenever they hit bump limit.

And /furry/ wasn't that bad. First off, you not using it has nothing to do with it's quality, and you not using it probably means that you've never actually seen it in action. As for straight shaming, if you think some shitposter calling you a "breeder" is straight shaming, then you really need to leave.

yes it was. /fur/ is more of the same but more pretentious and political now. which the latter wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that both the liberal and conservative sides are represented by shills who samefag and stir the pot and never have anything meaningful to say. i post about politics all day every day elsewhere but you'll never see me do it here because i'll be wasting my breath on a literal kike who isn't here to talk.

anyway what was i saying uh

oh yeah

okay first off i'm gay right so i don't really have a stake in this cause it didn't affect me but that breeder stuff wasn't just some little nothing that's being blown out of proportion, it was hundreds of guys (/furry/ was huge at that time) and they were spamming any straight thread with that shit and any post mentioning heterosexuality even outside of straight porn threads too. they'd spam gay porn alongside it.

and even though i had no stake in it i was so pissed off by their faggotry that i brought it up to blue and he banned it and you could report them and have it deleted pretty quickly. all was well until puppysky made it an anarchy, but by that point the board had lost so many users that yeah it really did become a non-issue.

I'm rather opposed to cyclic threads. Plus, that reason is fucking gay as shit.

/furry/ next to if not flatly never had any kinds of discussion. It was an overglorified e621, with a bunch of assholes who'd go to straight threads and whine.

And I do believe it was more than shitposting. I ain't talking some trashy single shitposts of "breeder", here, these people'd walk in to straight threads and start bitching and moaning about things, and fairly often start dumping their gay trash in the threads. It was cancer. Worse still, if you tried to call out the faggots for the lot, you'd end up derailing the thread entirely to be about 'homophobia' and 'bigotry', even though they're the ones walking in to a straight thread.

If you're talking about the early years then sure it was alright, but when /furry/ had 500~450 active IPs it was a shithole. Drawthreads were full of shitposting and derails. Faggots across the whole board were assholes and if you ever called them out on their shit then you would be called thin-skinned, or bitched about hugboxes and echochambers. Chronic shitposters were never dealt with and were able to do as they pleased across the whole board. The most active thread was the F-list thread and that's because it was nothing but drama and fighting over who knows what. The most discussion on the whole board was about drama or cringe. Out of all the boards I visited on this site /furry/ had to be the most mean-spirited and filled with nothing but /r9k/-tier posting whenever you weren't visiting a porn general. Everyone who didn't want to deal with that shit fled to /trash/ and are staying there because of it. They don't care if they have to deal with cuckchan because they rather not deal with the faggots who terrorized /furry/. The only ones who didn't go to /trash/ are anons who don't want to visit cuckchan out of principle.

<we're so much better guize!

So you're a newfag who wasnt around for the exodus of /furry/ which lead to the most active discussion this board ever had, thanks to /furry/ users. /fur/ was easily 30 PPH and lively in the start of the merge, until mods decided to close thread after thread pissing everyone off. The occasional autistic thread like furries beside humans2 (remember /fur/ has its own xenofag autist) doesnt make up for the barren state of the rest of threads lacking activity. Banning whatever they feel like and deciding X cant be talked about, or Y the way they want it to be talked about, hasnt created anyone more eager to talk in the very limited moderator approve stamped threads. Barely anyone posts here anymore, a reminder that /fur/ used to be always trending and the only thing more controlling mods have done is kill what activity it had.

/fp/ was created (when no one asked for it) and now since then, its started to lead to the same deletion and bumplocks that drove everyone to stop posting in general the first time around. I can't wait till dump threads that already existed for a full year with no issues, start being told to fuck off if they try to make the thread again after it hits limit. Go ahead mods, prove me right. This hasnt brought any discussion activity back, and it wont anytime soon. Instead we barely hit 5PPH now on weekends. When mods do shit like that, repeatedly people dont even view the board worth posting on thats why its a shithole, not because of anti-porn dumps, but because who knows what other dumbass shit the mods will decide to be autistic about next, like what was suggested ITT: forcing to shoving everyone back into very broad generals with more bumplocks or deletions.

Case example:

The furry videogame thread2 was shat up by the same xenofag autist who wouldnt shut up about "angels with wings". So a couple anons decided they had enough of that and made their own game threads to distance from that and only to get questioned if they should exist or bumplocked without even a derail happening. /fur/'s mods are total faggots who have proven they do nothing but complain, with no real solutions and just come up with more ways to be controlling. No rules ala freech is unusable, but there's a limit to how much people will tolerate for strong-arming them too.

I was here for then. We did not lose anyone of value, you ask me.

Further, we are better than /furry/ was, regardless of whatever cancer you want to spew.

There's been several good threads full of discussion. The ones talking about mascots, for instance, have been building some rather interesting lore and the ilk around our odd characters we've got. Some of the threads discussing OCs have brought up some excellent discussion on color combinations, schemes, and what makes a 'sparkledog'. I'd say you're blind, mate.

>. Barely anyone posts here anymore

We've got enough people. Plenty of folk do post here still. I'm not inclined to give a flying fuck about the loss of cancerous /furry/ faggots who just wanted a place to fap. They can go to e621, if they want that.

>This hasnt brought any discussion activity back,

Discussion activity is already here, you're just a blind fucking autist who wants /furry/'s literally no discussion at all.

>bumplocks or deletions

ARound political bullshit, yeah.

Did you want to be discussing politics on a furry board? I would've thought that's what /leftypol/ is for, you fucking cuckold.

What was wrong with the furry game thread? It was perfectly fine. People were discussion Angels with Scaly Wings because someone was kind enough to actually post a link to the full game, and the game was good enough to have some real substance behind it that could encourage discussion.

What did you want, instead? More of the trashy porn-request threads we were getting?

I think you might be a cancerous faggot, anon.

I'll be blunt, the more you type the more of a headache it is even thinking about responding seriously. Almost every sentence piles on another exaggeration, assumption, or dramatization wrapped around and weaved into a few opinions lacking any understanding of this board's aim and our intentions. Picking even one of these posts apart is an assignment fit for a writing course. If I have to write an essay it won't be to analyze your posts, but to lay out the reality juxtaposed for others to understand.

On the rule:

This rule on politics was proposed to make it clear why such "fandom" threads are bumplocked. Anchoring them without that understanding isn't very appropriate as they bear vague relation to the board, and so they are filled with "political shitters" and anons taking bait until our call is clear to make. Deleting a derail in these threads effectively removes all there is worth discussing, leaving a waste of space with few posts until the arguments start again. It is a terrible way of dealing with a shallow topic and worsens the atmosphere of the board.

The rule is also intended as a statement directed at those all too eager to bring politics where ever they go, that it isn't something appropriate for this board. I trust in users who share in the interests of /fur/ to recognize or inquire about exceptions, which are happily made. The statement may also retain value among the mention of consolidation; a common sense approach that keeps discussion of the convention news where off topic politics either won't take off or is easily removed.

On /fur/:

I find the need to make the intent and vision for this board clear, again. I created /fur/ to be a fun and creative place that explores the subject of anthropomorphism beyond fetishism, putting discussion and creation above porn dumping and bickering. That is the kernel of /fur/, as any board has. Somewhere along the line I let this vision waver over unsubstantiated worry of creating an unwelcoming atmosphere. That any sort of moderator action is seen as negative even when it is to preserve that kernel. The worry saw requests of many users go on hold when, in reality, working against the spirit of this board is truly unwelcoming.

I think this is all I need to say parallel with you for now, and with that said I'll return to working alongside everyone, doing what's best for /fur/ in the direction I set it.

The originals were made when this board was still active, the new one is a joke in comparison in terms of interest even comparing it to the previous thread before that. There isnt even any lore anyone cares about, its just random shit. Its nice you can name 1 or two threads in the catalog and think that's good enough, while the fandom related discussion (not furryfandom) threads are a barren wasteland with no excitement or discussion what so ever.

>What was wrong with the furry game thread

the fact it became angels and autists is whats wrong with it, at that point someone should have made their own thread but instead turned it into a steaming pile of only angels and autists. This is a great example of how consolidating everything to an OCD level is a failure, people distanced themselves from the thread until they shut the fuck up. It would have been a much better thread as its own with sharing the game so it didnt overtake everything else.

A good measurement would have been if there was enough to post about then start its own thread. Angels and autists takes up nearly half of the videogame2 thread, if you dont see that as an issue its because youre a fagot.

Those were two that quickly came to mind. On top of the humanity lot, I'd add. I'd also stick in the furry game thread, our art and draw threads, and the lit thread.

I've not really partook in all that many beyond there, to say. 'Least outside of more light empty threads. But those ones seem solid.

The fact that people're discussing a game is what is wrong with the thread? Frag off, faggot.

People could've discussed other games. There was just very little to be said about most the other games, on top of that most folk have not played those. AwSW was posted, full game, in the thread. Naturally people're going to discuss what they can actually get with their hands.

Besides that, when discussion was over, it changed back to the standard shit. It's the same jazz it was before now.

AwSW only takes up half the thread because the full game was posted for free, and it turned out to be interesting enough to maintain a conversation. Something any of the other games could do, if people'd do the same, and it was interesting enough.

>objective measurable activity

>obvious declining user interests

>not real

The drawthreads are a sea of requests with maybe 1 every 50 deliveries fulfilled, it's in a sad state, and making a SFW offshoot of this didnt "bring back users" by pandering to muh vision. The lit thread hasnt gotten anything substantial in months, and whenever anons post new content no one cares. All 3 "make a furry game" threads crashed and burned. The edit thread is a joke and dried up in activity a while ago. The art threads are mostly just advice and no one competent actually posts art because they fucked off to discord months ago.

If this is what you call activity, then you wouldnt know what an active board is if it bit you in the ass. When a thread is active and healthy it usually has its own dedicated sub community to keep it going with content and fans of the content. A case example; for a sub-community and not just a dead thread is the vorefag thread, which is an ebil dump, but also had plenty of discussion around it and dedicated drawfags who only post their art in the vorefag thread because they know dedicated fans will enjoy it and comment on it, and get better at drawing vorefag art. It's a self sustaining cycle. But I'm waiting for faggot mods to shut it down because of muh vision too. Were you around for the the fallout thread? It had dedicated drawfags and fans, but that was short lived because some autistic horseshit over muh vision was more important than people to interact with, it died and we havent seen the thread back since. Excellent work.

Thanks, we're trying our best to get the board in its best shape and a good, stable foundation is needed for the userbase to build further.

On that note, I've updated the rules in a few ways:

-Added the quip about politics as an addendum to the rule on shitposting and derails. We've discussed how handling politics remains mostly the usual, this is more of a "hint hint" sort of thing.

-"no /zoo/" was removed because it goes without saying given our clearly defined subject. It also held some suggestion that this is just a fetish board.

-Added rules that point out where /fur/ stands on porn and dumps more clearly; especially appropriate prior to some long delayed action

-Made the rule on OP images more about how explicit it is again, back to how anons suggested it and before we changed it due to preemptive worry. Judgment calls work much better for this.

The board has always done better when you werent around shoving your nose in everything. Your stench is everywhere on this board, I can only imagine how insulting and off putting it is to have the very first posts in a thread questioning every little thing.

Nice bumplock spree on dump threads that have been around for a year exactly like I said you would. You really are a nigger. Now every single thread that's an icky dump is on the fireing range to be bumplocked. The fact you think you've been lenient is a fucking joke, you have only ever sperged out over minor shit.

You dont understand the point of dumps is to be a social sharing experience, OH NO 10% of the threads are porn dumps we sure need to panic and cleanse the board of of it all and chase away active users because maybe 20 threads in the catalog is porn related, what a huge problem!

Actually there is a big problem I'm sure you've seen. There is at least one, maybe two /leftypol/ shitters who piss their dumbass opinions over anything they view as remotely political. I understand it take two sides to tango but if you read the threads that have politically derailed, you can plainly see it was these same trolls every time saying the same things.

I feel like we can have civil debates about issues of morality and differing ethics. For instance the newest example is the thread where people were talking about an armband being stolen and burnt. This thread about destruction of property was instantly skewed towards politics by someone posting communist images and shitty leftist memes and calling /leftypol/ by name as is their usual MO.

I just feel like it isn't very fair to bind and tether interesting debate because one shitter or group of shitters has proven time and time again that they aren't mature enough to handle discourse. It makes it so nobody wants to talk about anything that can be twisted into politics and that leaves out all the invigorating and meaningful battles of minds leaving us with boring vanilla porn threads and shitty "shill this shill that" advertisements for artists and games and music. You would do a lot better for this board if you get rid of the obvious problem and let good conversation pop up where it will.

I see your point, but even then I'm not sure how detached it could get from politics when given a whole thread, considering how ingrained it is.

How about we test it? Tomorrow we can delete the derail and remove further political posts, then watch what happens.

A way to differentiate between debate and pure politics is the mention of any side in particular. For instance in that thread you could say something like "destruction of property is wrong" or "haha, cringey symbols getting rpasted" depending on what side of the debate you're on. But when you start saying things like "aut right faggots get rekt" or "typical liberal disregard for free speech" then you've put a politcal spin on it and I think it needs to be culled. You can have an opinion that you attribute to your personal views, not to a side of the stupid ass red vs blue pillow fight.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, though.

I've thinking that those folk were likely responsible for the spam attack that occurred in /furry/ as well. They weren't part of /leftypol/ though, just a off-site political group who have tried to DDOS the site beforehand.

U18chan was attacked during that time and /furry/ used to get flack on for being a "nazi" site before. /leftypol/ was targeted as well, but they were probably perceived as "nazi" due to their anti-identity politics stance. That has changed though.

You can disregard what I said as it's a theory as there is no proof, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're the culprits.

Every board is a "containment" board. They're all places optimized for some purpose.

/fp/ is not an attempt to completely separate porn from /fur/. It's about giving dumps as well as essentially off topic fetish discussion its own place.

>What good will bumplocking a certain gay thread meant for a certain subform of the gay because there's already a gay thread do?

It prevents thread clutter and works against the perception the board is about posting what ever particular thing gets your rocks off rather than focusing on topics where the anthropomorphism actually matters.

If you want specific fetish stuff you go to a place geared for it. Would you argue it's fine for /v/ or /a/ to be filled with /vp/ or /h/ threads?


 No.42750

i genuinely cannot understand why people want porn threads at all. none of the content is original or rare. people post shit that you would find if you just searched the tag on FA and put "most recent". people take the most recent image from that tag and mirror it to porn threads. why don't people interested in that type of material just search it themselves? i've seen literally every picture in the /furry/ fart thread 20 times.

are they pandering towards retarded phone users that can't bother to log in to FA from their phones? i don't get it. are they trying to indoctrinate people who don't have that fetish and normally wouldn't search those tags? why?

are they trying to make friends there? people used to talk and tripfag in furry threads on /b/. why not just make a general chatting thread? why fill it with shitty porn everyone with a brain has already seen?


 No.42751

You're pretty close. Porn/fetish threads tend to spawn their own mini-communities beyond porn dumping if the right anons take part in them. It gives anons who have something in common a chance to gather so they can discuss the fetish itself, people who predominantly show up in it, share work that files under the radar, create content for the thread or even talk about something off-topic for the hell of it. It's actually pretty comfy if things take off. This doesn't really work in a general chatting thread because there's nothing connecting everyone together and it's even worse if someone what's to talk about or share something that could potentially be polarizing. So the porn/fetish is pretty much just a springboard to get things moving, assuming enough take part in it and don't mindlessly dump.

>it's complete bullshit that lefty politics is censored but the burned furs 2.0 muh degeneracy alt right shit isn't

That isn't the case. The fact of the matter is that we don't jump on deleting everything that is tiniest bit political. We delete derails and posts that especially threaten derails. Plenty of times we leave posts of either political group alone when they have been told by several people to drop their bullshit, or if it's relatively easy to ignore.

What we've found, and what you have to come to terms with, is that the majority of the posts that "start it" are leftist in nature. In that thread, the /pol/ post in question didn't instigate anything. As several people have said already, the words of the post are entirely on topic, and the image is not so blatantly political that it can't be easily ignored.

It is a later random leftist outburst in another post, unrelated to the one you have an issue with, that caused a small stir.

An anon was apparently offended that a leftist post, though blatant in its attempt to the derail the thread, was met with a frustrated response while this other right wing detail went ignored. He saw the need to speak out and make an issue of the irrelevant picture everyone else had appropriately ignored. Pointing it a problem with the post isn't bad, but instead doing handling things gracefully and to the point like other anons it was made into something to whine over. Instead of responding to the content of the post and simply adding "don't randomly post political stuff like that. I notice the SS" or filing a report, the victim card was played and leftest propaganda posted in protest to derail the thread.

I ask you to leave your own biases aside and think a little more carefully about these situations.

You seem to just bumplock it, when what I'd do is just delete every political post in the thread and leave it up and if people have a problem with it, delete those posts too and direct them to the meta thread (where you can tell them to fuck off for breaking the no politics rule).

however, you should only fuck off -slightly-, because you still have to keep order, stop SPAM, stop unrelated shitposting (ie: "hey guys lets have a gfur threa- FAGGOTS ARE ALL DEGENERATES 14/88 MUH /pol/) and over all make a place comfortable for anyone to discuss furry topics and post furry porn.

just shut the fuck up

my favorite shit man, people literally cannot not reply to shitposters. this communist guy should start using a tripcode and watch and see as people when given the option to filter him still don't and keep replying just as much as they do now.

and speaking of that, bell, if you're going to anchor the threads anyway, why not delete them on sight instead of waiting for them to become a cesspit? you knew what was going to happen in that thread, you said yourself that the OP was a piece of shit. it was a 100% chance that that was going to happen and you should have deleted it instead of letting it get a hundred posts giving people the false sense of politics being welcome here.

What are you talking about? Have you misunderstood why that thread was anchored?

>>43518

Where did you create the fantasy of a single person causing political derail? I said the majority of instigation or derail starts with leftist posts. Banning people for political posts in an easily politically charged thread is not fair without frequent warning, and neither will it fix a damn thing long term when the thread is so shallow there is little else to discuss.

You've yet to acknowledge that how you chose to set up the thread contributes to this.

When I addressed the derail and mentioned to your own post about the unnecessary politics, you acted like I was ready to delete the thread and said that the politics were an integral part of it. You presented your own agenda insisting we pick a political side to cater and supported the creation of a counter list, but had to gall to suggest you want "debate".

>>43528

>>43530

We've been running a test cleaning up these threads and testing if anything more can come of them. I didn't bother with this one because this anon gave me a solid understanding of their nature.

We should be quicker about deleting things after anchoring, but we tend to do that first so that our action isn't permanent at the moment of our decisions.

Someone earlier said /furry/ was better than /fur/. And I'm inclined to agree with them, no offense to Bell, who is leaps and bounds better than PuppySky.

The reason /furry/ was better was because politics hadn't become a meme yet You know what you were doing before le kekistan based nigger wearing an MAGA hat started up and indoctrinated you and made you start following this fad? You were an apolitical braindead retard playing fucking video games. And you were a better poster for it.

Thing is, you can get a 'porn thread' simply enough by making a thread for whathaveyou, with a discussion, and posting images.

So even if for whatever reason, you must have a porn thread, you can still make it here, you just have to have some actual discussion, as opposed to purely a dump lot. Not exactly hard to accomplish.

If you're wanting a thread for porn, make a thread for whatever your particular fetish is, say "avian general" given that there's that up now, put in a couple images, and give it a little bit of a line to encourage some discussion. In that one's case, "no tits > tits".

Others'll post their own images while discussion flows. Next thing you know, you've got a bunch of pictures for your desperate porn thread needs, and you've got a fair bit of discussion. Everyone's happy.

Maybe we should bring N8 back as the board mascot, Bill Katt is cool but he feels like a avatar of the BO

Also N8 was very popular with artists, he helped to bring more people to the board, we should keep Bill and Kemo around but N8 should be back to the banners. .

We're the same community from /furry/ so is pretty much the same board but with a new admin(bell)

Actually, Puppysky was very open about being a right-leaning Trump voter. Users didn't care about N8 wearing maga-hats though. There were even pics of him dressed in ISIS garb.

What happened recently was Antifa Twitter users made an effort to come chan outlets because of the "nazifur" scare. They've been shitting up the board because artists like artdecade encouraged them to do so. They're in lulz.net for sure, but some are in /fur/.

Discords cause unnecessary drama, are no more conducive to creativity than any conventional forum or blog structure, and choke off any supply of new members as they are essentially invisible to people not already here - of whom only a small subset will even join up. The pool of potential contributors is automatically far, far smaller than the pool of general internet users. A discord cannot magically summon content or discussion. What would you write there that is somehow unavailable to you when you type into the reply field here?

Even if you are too stupid to grasp a priori that it mechanically will not achieve any beneficial goals (or is in fact detrimental to them), the universality of them devolving into toxic cesspools of bitching, fragmentation and backbiting whenever they have cropped up elsewhere should be evidence enough that they are possibly the most boneheaded suggestion imaginable unless you are either the kind of intellectual disaster that is incapable of looking outside their own window at the world before broaching their next Great Idea with the community, or that you are the sort of cancerous polyp that thrives in the soap-operatic, stagnant echo chambers these things breed where you actually have seen them.

Don't get me wrong; Discord is superb for voicechat, and a great IM protocol/Skype equivalent, but the notion that it is a healthy framework for a general, open membership community is laughable, and anyone who suggests so can fuck off until their naked idiocy is cured.

I have a question on what you define as "real life politics at the door" in 1b.

It looks like a post of mine was deleted in the FA hate thread, and I was pretty confused, as my post wasn't off-topic. I'd like to have a more concrete definition here, because I really didn't think that would qualify as breaking the rules because of how loose that definition is.

Now the post in question talked about the recent Code of Conduct change in FA. It talks about "Individuals and groups promoting hatred (Nazism, KKK, ISIS, etc)". Within the comments, I pointed out there were Antifa sympathizers in those comments - which Antifa has recently not had a very peaceful record. It wasn't too much a political discussion, and everyone who replied agreed on how stupid the whole situation was.

The only other somewhat political thing I mentioned is the need for platforms open to free speech - as many platforms these days are trying to stop "hateful" content.

Is merely mentioning the confederate fursuiter, in something like a convention or fursuit thread considered offtopic/too political?

I'm a bit confused and upset on why this occurred, and I'd like to have a detailed explanation. I'd also like to point out that almost everything will have some relationship to politics. It's just a matter of how much you're willing to abstract yourself.

Fuck /pol/ and /leftypol/. I don't like either one of them. It seems that it has also made mods paranoid.

Would I be able to make another post talking about the CoC changes / CoC in general, or am I not allowed to do that?

The CoC vaguely bans hate groups such as "(Nazism, KKK, ISIS, etc)" - which inherently gets a little political.

Personally, I've had no problem with politics if:

a. It's not a complete shitpost directly about politics with little-to-no grounding to the furry fandom, such as "what other furfags around here support politician X?"

b. It relates directly to the furry fandom and/or the main topic of the thread. For example, recently, a councilman in CT resigned recently after his furfag powerlevel was revealed. Other good examples would include "Furries for ISIS" memes, or shitting on buzzfeed-esque articles related to furries

c. It's not controversial, and everyone can have some form of agreement


 No.50042

>>50019

Your post about the CoC was fine. However when you drifted into talking about Antifa, this is where it becane a problem. That had nothing to do with the CoC, and it was only meant to make a political stance. I understand maybe the whole thing is political in nature, but it helps keep the thread on the rails if you stick to one subject. You can say "this CoC is unfair and is obviously malicious" without brining up Antifa and giving the leftists something to screech about.

>However when you drifted into talking about Antifa

I disagree with that statement. It was absolutely relevant to FA's CoC. The first thing I thought of when I read the CoC, was "what do you define as a hate group? Is there going to be a double standard for those who are leftists (see twitter, youtube, or any other major social media platform)". I became concerned once only violent right winged groups were mentioned, with no word about the recent violence of Antifa - as were some of the other faggots on FA posting comments about it.

>You can say "this CoC is unfair and is obviously malicious" without brining up Antifa and giving the leftists something to screech about

Nobody in the thread was screeching about what I was saying. Antifa, and antifa-sympathizers are merely a vocal minority within the left. Hell, even /leftpol/'s Noam Chomsky doesn't like Antifa, Taking a shit on historically violent groups is not controversial, unless you have been indoctrinated into believing so.

Also, that post didn't derail the thread. There were 2 replies about the comments made on FA, and the thread kept moving.

I'm still confused on what's allowed and what isn't. I want to freely express myself, but I don't want my posts deleted. I remember having a fun in /furry/ shitting on some new furry-website with something like 40 options for gender. I'm afraid these rules at /fur/ are going to be too restrictive on what can be said.

You can make fun of 40 or 50 genders without once bringing up a political group. I don't understand why this is so hard to process for you. Every time you respond it gets harder and harder to communicate with you because you just repeat yourself over and over again and expect a different answer each time.

You can take a shit on whatever you want as long as it has to do with the thread.

You just said yourself that there was no word about Antifa in the CoC. So why bring them up, then? You said in your own words that you are the sole person who brought them into the conversation. The correlation between Antifa and that CoC decision was fabricated by you entirely. Nobody said their name but you. Nobody connected them to the CoC but you. That is exactly where the issue lies. Instantly after you posted, people stopped talking about FA and started shifting towards lefty this, righty that. No matter how right you may have been, that's a derail by anyone's definition. Nobody is being restrictive on what you can talk about but derails are being cracked down on. Its a very simple concept. Please get it through your head. Please. Let me give you a baby-tier example.

Let us say that someone makes a list of names of all "nazi furries" again. OP 1 says "typical /leftypol/, dangerous libtards on the roam again," or some variant. This thread is obviously going to be nothing but shitposting and mudflinging from both sides because that was the only conversation offered. That would be deleted.

OP2 makes the same thread. But his post is "Someone is making a list of people who don't agree with them and telling people not to do business with them, and an unfortunate number of people are starting to listen. ITT we talk about why mob rule is wrong and what to do to stop it." That thread is going to be able to stay up because it can go any number of different ways without being political and allowing for derails at all. Again I would like to reiterate: your freedom of speech is always valued. You however do not have freedom to derail by shitposting about unrelated stuff to steer a thread a different direction. It is as simple as saying what you need to say while attributing your ideas to one person, not a group at large. Dragoneer's decisions don't need to be attributed to Antifatards. You can make fun of him and his shitty choices for eons before even touching on his political beliefs. Once you bring a political affiliation into it, then you have people swarming the thread because they feel like they've been personally slighted and the conversation becomes about what they believe and not about what the OP had in mind. We have had a ton of threads devolve into this lately and I am getting really sick and tired of it. I really hope that I explained it well enough for you.

The reason I was confused about the whole "gender" situation, is that it's become a politicized issue. Glad to know there's a little more clarity on what you're saying, and it seems you're a little more focused on political groups. I was having trouble understanding your methodology.

You kept saying I derailed the thread - yet as I have mentioned earlier, the thread kept moving without any problems. Just looking at the 2 replies, they were only talking about how retarded the whole comments section was.

>You just said yourself that there was no word about Antifa in the CoC. So why bring them up, then?

Only violent right-wing groups were mentioned as banned, so Antifa was mentioned quite a bit in the comments of FA. Doing a quick pagesearch, it was mentioned 238 times, assuming none of those comments were deleted.

>Let us say that someone makes a list of names of all "nazi furries" again. OP 1 says "typical /leftypol/, dangerous libtards on the roam again," or some variant. This thread is obviously going to be nothing but shitposting and mudflinging from both sides because that was the only conversation offered. That would be deleted.

I never made a huge blanket statement on a broad group with different views unlike the example you are presenting. I was talking about Antifa sympathizers, and I was focused on some of the [quality] comments on FurAffinity.

Look, I understand what you are talking about, and I don't like it when someone from /pol/ or /leftypol/ makes a thread shitting on the other side as a straw man. I wasn't paying too much attention to the comments above, but I'm guessing there was a lot of shit, so you were in a "shoot first, ask questions later" attitude. I keep replying because I really believe it was out of the line to delete that post. I just hope this kind of censorship doesn't continue. Obviously, you can't have a perfect system. I would much rather have slightly too much said than too little around here.

He likes to blame everyone but himself for his shit life, and turned /pol/ because of the crappy surgery that left him a freak. Must be the fault of the LGBT community for not picking a better doctor.

Literally what's wrong with doxxing?

If you put your private information on the internet, you deserve to have it compiled and shown to the public.

I can understand trying to protect your own identity, but why the identity of others.

People will always find a way to post doxxes anyway, seems kind of pointless. Meanwhile, political shitposting is still rampant and there's nothing being done about it.


 No.54808

>>54796

The only reason a person doxxes someone else is to bully them and to silence them. Allowing it on a website causes the tone of the website to get much more predatory and pro harassment. (IE: Hey everyone this artist ripped me off here's all of his personal information) threads.

Generally speaking the golden rule applies, nobody wants their information shared with other people to gawk at and by the same token you shouldn't do it to someone else just to spite them because you have a minor disagreement.

I don't think people deserve it, but they do run that risk. If someone wants to dox, it should be their own investigation, and not creating threads or posting for help, ecouraging it, etc, on this board. Doxing comes with the territory.

>Meanwhile, political shitposting is still rampant and there's nothing being done about it.

Depends on what you define as "doxxing".

I do not consider revealing information that is public about someone who has already been linked to that public information 'doxxing'.

But, some people think, say, posting Frank's facebook page to Frank's youtube is "doxxing".

My opinion, doxxing only matters when it involves anonymous accounts linked to one's personal information. IE, I were to reveal that you lived at 0800 Bixby Lane, essentially.

It's been considered to have a general political containment thread however the biggest fear upon doing so is it invites a /pol/ element and leads to raid attempts on the board as well as rampant doxxing of users from other boards because a furry board is a very appealing target for such things.

It's currently been agreed upon that porn dumps limit discussion and encourage a more passive approach to the board. IE: People just visit, view/download images and leave.

Poor move, judging a thread that early, I'd say. Especially when the board's currently covered in shitposts, dramafagging, and politics.

Especially when we've already got three at least, that I know of, image dump threads. Most notably being the pokemon one.

Then again, the bumplock was after the thread was fairly under-way, too, so that doesn't rightly explain it either.

Unless you guys aren't reading the threads before you judge them, merely going by OP posts.

In which case, terrible move, and of course it still leaves the issue of existing dump threads left alone, leaving the clear double standard still rampant.

A couple of politispergs keep derailing threads over petty shit, which is enough to suffocate all other kinds of discussion when the board already had a low population to begin with, which in turn drives people away.

Unfortunately he has started using Tor, so banning is no longer an option or else everyone who uses Tor will be banned. He's pretty easy to spot since he uses the same three words in every post (Drumpf, pedophile, Zaush) so he isn't very hard to root out, but he is one dedicated son of a bitch.

In light of all these image deletions and bumplocking that seem to trail back to cub, what is the administrative stance on N8? Will you ban everybody who ever posts N8 in the future? I don't understand what the idea is here. It's suddenly ambiguous as to what I am allowed to post and where.

There's a dedicated avian thread and some people don't like birds -- will I be banned for posting a bird elsewhere? If I use a reaction image in a discussion thread, will my post be deleted because a "reaction image general" exists? Would an image such as this one be deleted and directed of the cub general simply because they look too young to somebody's subjective viewpoint? What do the administrators define as acceptable? Barring the obvious scat, which fetishes or subjects are allowed in broad-topic threads and which ones need to be confined to specific generals?

>You guys have decided to draw a line so grey and fuzzy it's impossible to know what side to stand on. At least elaborate on what exactly you're intending so that the rules are clear for everybody.

Did you look at the first post in this very thread? The rules are very clear and they've been in place for most of /fur/'s existence. Why things might seem a bit over-moderated now is that we didn't really have much moderation going on for a good while. For example, the guy who constantly derailed threads with politics and the dragons with paws guy certainly fucked up a good amount of threads, but they were only reprimanded by a mod long after they initially started shitposting. In this case, the mod/s were a bit more prompt with this situation. The Floraverse thread was never about the webcomic, the Califur thread wasn't about Califur, and the Zabivaka / Russian furry agents thread was never about its stated subject. In fact, here's a link to it: >>66398 . It's absolutely fine to have a thread on cubs and discuss them, and while it is a fairly controversial topic, it's certainly preferable to have it all in one thread than to have it seep into other unrelated threads and tarnish, or maybe even kill off the original topic.

As far as the image deletions go, I'm not really aware of all the things that have been deleted, so I can't give much of an opinion on that. I'd think common sense the above rules would be all that you'd need to not get your images deleted.

The problem isn't that; the problem is that the mods are using this as an excuse to start exercising their opinions and tastes as unilateral dictators. They kinkshame certain fetishes and deliberately play favorites in political arguments, for example. They have zero interest in making things better; they're only pushing the "agenda" of making everything like /pol/, despite that it goes against the previous board culture and the furry subculture as a whole.

Lack of moderation is usually only an issue when it's literally board-destroying things like when /furry/ was spammed to death. A few retards shitposting here and there isn't much of a concern on a board that has enough traffic to push it to the wayside. In essence, the majority opinion will police itself and the userbase will moderate itself. The reason it's an issue right now is because /fur/ is so fucking dead that one troll with a some spare time can singlehandedly supersede the entire goddamn board traffic only his own efforts (no spambots required).

Basically, what I'm saying is when you're reached the point where you're begging for mods to police your board, you're 1) only going to make things worse, and 2) already past the point where your board is dead. To put a hilariously political spin on this concept: once you've reached a point where you elect a clown to destroy the establishment of your country, you've 1) allowed him to make things worse, and 2) past the point where democracy has obviously failed.

They don't kinkshame, they just state that taboo fetishes like cub, zoo, and scat should be in their own containment thread. The same rule was in /furry/.

>They have zero interest in making things better; they're only pushing the "agenda" of making everything like /pol/, despite that it goes against the previous board culture and the furry subculture as a whole.

Really? Because the only political person I'm seeing is the anti-Trump sperg who rants about Milo. I wish it were /pol/.

I'm the guy you originally replied to. Regarding any mods' potential agenda, I honestly don't see it. Could you give me some examples of this? I've always felt like any ban or bumplock was used because of general shitposting, whether it's about right or left wing politics.

>They kinkshame certain fetishes

Things that aren't widely accepted should be handled a little more carefully, and if you're into more extreme stuff, you'll most likely be under criticism as it is. Feel free to make a scat or gore thread if you'd like, as there are no rules against it, but make sure you follow all the rules and don't take any bait and get your thread bumplocked.

For your last three paragraphs, I think you're wrong on most points.

>A few retards shitposting here and there isn't much of a concern on a board that has enough traffic to push it to the wayside.

/fur/ has never been that big for this to work. More so, the size of a board's userbase isn't as important compared to how the users themselves react to shitposting. How differently would a few of the threads I posted play out if the users stayed on topic and ignored/reported certain posts?

>Basically, what I'm saying is when you're reached the point where you're begging for mods to police your board...

We're not, the mods even said that they take a more hands off approach until their intervention is needed. Also, user reporting plays a big role in how these decisions are made, it's just up to the mods to enforce those decisions.

>Regarding any mods' potential agenda, I honestly don't see it

Of course you don't see it; they just delete any dissenting opinion that doesn't line up with sucking Trump's cock all the time. If you argue with a right-wing poster talking about how fags need to burn, you'll get banned with the reason listed as "this is not /leftypol/" which is funny because they're perfectly happy letting /pol/ run this entire site. It's also wrong because disagreeing with one side (like saying Nazis are bad) isn't necessarily agreeing with the other. But that doesn't fly because it's their way or the highway.

If the gatekeepers of this were people reporting, that would mean that it's actually the userbase which is politically motivated, and reporting everything they don't like. (Not a surprise because it's always white people complaining about niggers or straight people complaining about fags, almost never the reverse.) Same result. All the content creators and "nice people" have long since left; this is now the furry version of /v/: just a bunch of assholes complaining about things they don't like, and every once in a while making a theme thread where people post the same old shit over and over again and masturbate nostalgia over the past that wasn't nearly as good as they were told it was.

It was nice to define /fur/ as the place where artists and creators congregated, but that was lost. After /furry/ got spammed all the traffic SHOULD have come here, but it didn't. I do not know why. However, the result was that all the assholes came here and turned it into a meaningless image dump and circlejerking platform for complaining about minorities. It's no longer anything to do with the community or furries or art/lit anymore. It's just /pol/ except everyone's wearing fursuit masks, just like /a/ except everyone's wearing loli masks, just like /v/ except everyone's wearing Doomguy masks.

It's all the fucking same everywhere; all fucking bland and boring; all just a bunch of whiny pubescent retards bitching about the 1% of the world that isn't completely the way they want it, and filling the cesspool with their flavorless sterilized McDonalds 99%. That's why they call them "privileged".

I tried to make it better. But nobody cares. Nobody wants what I produce because it's not about cute girls with big tits being fucked by permanently-smug idealized protagonists for the straight male audience to self-insert as. This isn't a thinking fandom; it's a fap and be done with it fandom. I could be making the equivalent of brilliant arthouse films, but everyone only wants the next Marvel movie. You've heard of the "whitewashing" that globalization has done on the world. Well, that's what furry is like here. All the texture of cardboard, and that's how people WANT it.

I see, I'll start paying more attention to what's deleted from now on, I'd like to get a clear picture of what's going on. Maybe if users were more vocal about their removed posts and appealed (this thread would work well for this), we might have a more fair board. Also, more transparency in the board log might help, as a lot of deletions by mods and report dismissals have no stated reason.

As for the state of /fur/ and its future, while cliche, it's up to us to be the change we want to see, and to not give up hope despite how awful the famdom may seem to be. I certainly do care about /fur/, but I haven't been as active lately as most of the current content here is either porn or famdom drama, neither of which I care about in large quantities, especially the latter. Despite these things, I'm trying to get into writing, making a fursona/character to vicariously act through online, and am planning at some point to share more furry-related content I find meaningful that others might enjoy. I'm sure there are a lot of others out there with similar ideas too. There's so much more potential left in anthropomorphism, so many artists and writers are stuck in the mostly-adult market that is this fandom when they could be striking it out with a new idea or narrative. Instead, artist and writers stagnate rehashing erotica year after year. "Furry" doesn't have to be like this forever, and all it takes is enough people with enough passion to make this kind of change happen. So please, post your content, start a discussion, make that furry arthouse film, I would love to see them, and so would others.

>Wealthy straight white Christian males like to "play" the victim; I AM the victim.

This never happened at all. What happens is that there's a user who derails a thread to make the same inane rant about Trump and Milo being nuhtzee peedos. There's nothing new nor insightful behind those false lies.

>It was nice to define /fur/ as the place where artists and creators congregated, but that was lost. After /furry/ got spammed all the traffic SHOULD have come here, but it didn't. I do not know why. However, the result was that all the assholes came here and turned it into a meaningless image dump and circlejerking platform for complaining about minorities. It's no longer anything to do with the community or furries or art/lit anymore. It's just /pol/ except everyone's wearing fursuit masks, just like /a/ except everyone's wearing loli masks, just like /v/ except everyone's wearing Doomguy masks.

Post proof of these so-called /pol/-threads, because I haven't been seeing them at all. You're just angered because it doesn't resemble your milque-toast twitter feed.

>Wealthy straight white Christian males like to "play" the victim; I AM the victim. There's a difference. But you wouldn't understand that; you think two gay characters on evening sitcoms means they have no problems anymore.

You aren't a victim, you're just a narcissist who thinks that everyone should kiss your feet for being an LGBT snowflake. The fact that you claim that the board is dead while repeating coming back to post in this community proves this. People of all backgrounds come here to post, I'm a gay black person who posts here and I don't mind the views because free speech means seeing the views that you disagree with.

You don't seem to be content with your "ideal" communities because they're a bland controlled hugbox where there's no variation whatsoever. From what it seems to be, it's just a dull anti-Trump gay porn dump like your twitter feed. I can't imagine people being in an echochamber for 3 years straight. Yet you want to force the same shit here so that you can complain about other sites with have unrestricted speech? Screw off.

They're all nice people in places like that, who support each other and where bullshit isn't tolerated.

It's funny how you keep running back to "muh free speech". It's fucking pathetic. There are homeless people starving in the streets, nobody can afford proper healthcare, the 99% is being raped of their future to overwhelming approval through their inability to see farther than their next paycheck, minorities are being lynched and murdered on the daily, our government is openly anti-science, the President is objectively a blowhard incompetent racist asshole with a huge chip on his shoulder and no concern for even his OWN children, war with Iran looks to be just around the corner, and the best argument to solve children getting shot in schools once per week is to shove more guns into the situation and hope they cancel out like some retard's algebra.

BUT AT LEAST WE'RE ALL FREE!! At least the police (when they aren't arresting black people for daring to stand around being black) won't impede your ability to dress up as Nazis and burn flags and picket funerals! Because, as we all know, it's not life or health or peace or security or sense or logic that is the MOST IMPORTANT THING; it's being able to speak the disgusting filth of your mind whenever you want. And for that privilege, you will sell your soul. Good on you!

>There are homeless people starving in the streets

Only in California, which is a left-wing social democracy.

>nobody can afford proper healthcare

The ACA hasn't been repealed yet. It was a bill made by the Obama administration that forces everyone to purchase health insurance with the penalty of a fine. Considering that the rates of the insurance and fines increased over time, it's no surprise that no one can afford it at all.

>minorities are being lynched and murdered on the daily

I live in Texas in the south as a gay black person and I haven't been touched once. Reality is not your twitter feed.

The same government that funded Nasa with 19.1 BILLION? So anti-science, right?

>the President is objectively a blowhard incompetent racist asshole with a huge chip on his shoulder and no concern for even his OWN children

Being anti-illegal immigration isn't racism.

Previously you were all claiming that he would have war with NK and they recently had a peace treaty.

>the best argument to solve children getting shot in schools once per week is to shove more guns into the situation and hope they cancel out like some retard's algebra.

Shooters always pick the path of least resistance. There's a good reason why the majority of them shoot in gun free zones like schools as opposed to NRA/gun conventions.

> BUT AT LEAST WE'RE ALL FREE!!

We are free, you're just an individual who is blinded by self-pity and irrational fear from reading the headlines of online news articles. You're narcissist who hasn't broke out of their bubble, shrieking "WOE IS ME" after looking at your twitter feed.

I'm ashamed to admit it took me at least 2 months before it dawned on me that every furry I saw was in fact a person wearing a costume called a fursuit, and not, as I thought, a different species of sentient creature altogether. I've never seen a non-chef wearing a chef's costume nor a non-astronaut wearing an astronaut's costume, so in my eyes my misconception was understandable.

I don't think you'll be able to convince someone of a new political perspective on the net, especially on a furry-centric board. Moreover, you'll just end up provoking an unneeded response. The only way to win is to deal with others' opinions, and If you feel like someone is really forcing a political discussion/derail, just report them.

>I can't imagine people being in an echo-chamber for 3 years straight.

>>70985

>You're a good person, so I can say with assurance that you don't belong here.

Thank you, but I wish that were the case. I really enjoy imageboards over most other platforms, as I don't like how other forms of social media focus on individual identities. I think it's the reason why there's so much drama online in the fandom to begin with. But for imageboards, their impermanence and lack of identity are its greatest strengths.

I'll keep them in mind though. I sometimes forget that there might be another audience outside of 8chan there that I'd fit in with.

As for the rest of your post, while there are a lot of terrible things going on in the world at any time, try to focus on the good things. Especially good things you yourself could be doing to help out, and even those with differing opinions from yours will do the same.

There are plenty of homeless people in your shitty left-wing "utopian" cities like Portland and San Francisco. If you can't help the impoverished under a free market, then you won't be able to do it under a government that's trillions in debt.

>He thinks people could afford healthcare before the ACA, or will after it

Just pointed out that your left-wing healthcare bill made it worse for everyone else. It was good temporarily, but it became worse because you decried the critics who pointed out that rates were going to rise. Unsurprisingly, less people can afford it now.

>He thinks 19 billion dollars is a lot of money compared to the hundreds of trillions spent on waging warfare

<Syrian airstrikes $92.9 million

<https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/16/syria-airstrikes-cost-to-us-taxpayers.html

<Nasa $19 billion

<https://www.space.com/39671-trump-nasa-budget-2019-funds-moon-over-iss.html

YEAH, $92.9 million for war is greater than $19 BILLION spent on a space program. I guess this is how communists compute math.

>He thinks Trump calling African countries "shitholes" and that he wants more people from countries like Sweden isn't racist and stupid

First, he said that he wanted folks from norway. Second, it's not racist to point out that non-english speakers from a country with a low GDP will find it more difficult to integrate than english speakers from a country with a high GDP. It's a fact. Third, calling that country a nice word wouldn't improve wouldn't improve the shithole of Haiti.

We'll see, but you've been proven wrong about him time after time again.

>He thinks shootings only happen in gun-free zones.

Every single major reported one like Parkland and Orlando happened in a gun-free zone. Not my fault that you're too stupid to verify that information. Even without that information, common sense dictates that they target victims who can't fight back. That is why you'll notice that their causalities are unarmed civilians instead of law enforcement, soldiers, or gun owners.

>Do you have anything else to add to pile onto this mountain of evidence for how stupid and ignorant you are?

>Cherry-picking data this hard and ignoring that a third of the USA GDP goes to "defense"

I'm not cherrypicking data, I'm stating facts and using simple compare and contrast. Compare the GDP of haiti with that of any other developed country out there and you'll notice that haiti is behind any other country. The left resents the truth.

>You know how many public schools could have been built and stocked and staffed for $100 dollars?

You want a PUBLIC school to have a budget of 100 DOLLARS? WHAT? Do you know how expensive lunch, software, equipment, and school programs are?

Do you see what I mean when I say that your ideas are objectively bad? The majority of you have your head in la-la land. It's as if you don't THINK at all.

>Why don't we let our "muh privatized education" cabinet head just make it so only rich kids get to learn how to read. Skip the foreplay and get right to the conservative endgame.

Because they don't want to suppress the rights of anyone, quit reading your twitter feed. Conservatives ideally want private schools so that they can provide specialized curriculum to youth. In the past, there used to be apprenticeships solely designed for people to become artists, mathematicians, etc. That's how Frank Franzetta succeeded.

I was a straight A student from public school, but the issue I've noticed with public school is that plenty of my peers were unmotivated to pursue their education because they were given irrelevant bland topics that they weren't interested in. To them, everything was so standardized and irrelevant to the point where it gave them no fun nor applicable skill whatsoever. They skipped school and often failed courses.

It's only when they went to college/uni that they succeeded with flying colors. That's because they had more control over their future despite paying a lot for it. That's the same opportunity that conservatives want to give to youth, but leftists shriek "MUH HEARTLESS NUHTZEEEE WANTS TO MAKE MUH KIDS DUM" without ever thinking about the logistics.

>Regarding any mods' potential agenda, I honestly don't see it

I only visit this board maybe once a month due to the out of control shit modding and his bias is as clear as day. I honestly dont see much damage that Birdmod does but Buzzmod is a cancerous, passive agressive, aspie on the board 24/7. For some perspective, Spits and Bell (BO) are the only two of the original team, and they barely touch the board. The vast majority of moderation decisions (whether its dissmissal or punishment) are handled by one giant faggot. If you want to know why /fur/ is shit and dead it doesnt take long to deduce it.

Back a year ago decisions needed to be agreed upon as a team, but its obvious this cocksucking janitor is just acting on free reign to run the board into the ground any way he wants. Look at half way down the board log. He just makes up a fucking rule thats not part of the official ones and bans someone over it. This is cuckchan levels of shit-moderation, going on a crusade against one thing that triggers xir. The majority of his bans are anti-imageboard reddit cancer like clamping down on a fetish he doesnt like on his own will, like cub which he hands out deletions, anchors and bans like candy just for people posting in a way he doesnt like.

<You were warned not to post cub outside of cub threads

<Ban - Do NOT post cub outside of cub threads

>>70969

>more transparency in the board log might help, as a lot of deletions by mods and report dismissals have no stated reason.

There is no transparency and never will be. IP deletion is just 1 button and everything is gone. There is no reason you can even type in when you click that button so all you will get is the wake of a colossal shitstain smeared across the board log, like pic related.

If you want to push something like that on 8chan then you'd need to convince CodeChimp to dedicate time to a new feature that nobody would bother with. If thats your grand idea on how to improve /fur/ then its dead in the water before it began.

Again to (((Buzzmod))) who will read this

Even if I were to agree with your viewpoints about the subject you're being a cockwrangler over, I will not stand with making the board more like reddit, stifling anons posting because you dont like whats said. Get fucked and kill yourself. You already clearly eat your own shit, the board would be far better off without you ever coming back again.

Hey, can we get an official ruling on Discord links? I've been reporting them when I see them, and while they are getting taken care of, thanks, it'd be nice to have it plainly stated on the sticky.

>>91471

I think they could help, but depending on the tenacity of the person(s) posting/spamming about those issues, all it'd take is a proxy to switch up ID's, making them fairly ineffective.

Maybe a reinstatement of the whitelist might help as well, but it still suffers from the same issue.

If we were to vote, I'd be in favor of IDs.

The rule on tripfagging was more in the context of people doing it obnoxiously like in the past what occurred with Bui. More recently it's been people debating about pedophiles and putting their name to their post. And there's an argument to be made that deleting their posts does more harm because it limits further discussion/debate. I've personally erred on the side of letting it slide until it becomes a bigger issue like if it snowballs into /animus/ style threads.

There's also the fact that whenever it happens the threads they are apart of have dozens of replies and I would prefer to not neuter a thread of genuine discussion just because of a trip.

>>91483

Generally speaking we delete threads about discord servers because the threads become immediately derailed and it's just using the board to advertise something. It's the same stance we've had toward people posting threads just to advertise another board they just made. More recently there's been a somewhat disturbing trend recently for discord servers to target users for doxxing and there's a concern about people trying to setup a honeypot "official /fur/ server" or a "cubs only" server only to dox people who join it as zoophiles or pedophiles.

It's been a while since we last updated the rules, but we're considering adding a new clause to rule 1 so we can better deal with chronic thread derailment that's sprung up.

There is a small number of posters interjecting inflammatory posts about cub into various threads in a way that constantly causes derailment. The situation is similar to political bickering, but disallowing cub discussion is by no means the answer here. What we're considering is this:

1.c. Please keep cub discussion and porn content in cub threads

Ideally this should let us avoid more derailment instead of reacting to it. We'll also be sure to clear cub threads of derailment and harassment targeted at them.

Please share what you think!

>>97725

>1.c. Please keep cub discussion and porn content in cub threads

In general that's probably a good idea. There could be some issues though where there's crossover appeal on a particular subject. For example a Sonic thread where you'r not allowed to post Tails, Cream, or Marine (or Amy in certain situations) wouldn't be much of a Sonic thread. Another example would be the furry video thread. At some point Anubis is going to get released, would it be OK to post in that thread or not?

The only thing I can figure is that threads on certain subjects or artists will have to be considered inherently cub friendly or we'll have to make dual threads for those subjects. We need a little clarification.


 No.98013

>>97725

I can foresee a bunch of superfluous anti-cub threads being made just to complain in a "legal" thread.

>>97977

I feel like a Sonic thread would have to allow cub for the reasons said. That said, there shouldn't be any issue with the Anubis furry video game discussion as long as it stays in line of discussing the game and not the "how could you play this sick pedophile simulator".


 No.98028

>>97977

This won't be an issue. Posting pictures of cute characters and posting pictures of sexualized cubs belong in different threads in the first place. A Sonic thread can be filled with pictures just like yours and it's fine. I don't think a drawing of Cream or Tails hanging out can be considered a cub centered picture. If they were fucking, that brings it to a different realm that has its own thread and needs to stay in its own thread. Anubis is going to be a game about cub porn, so it will belong in the cub porn thread.

>>98013

The only place where cub discussion will be allowed is in the cub threads that are already present and the new ones that get made when those drop off. The anti cub people can hide it if they don't like it (which is what should have been going on in the first place) and trolling in those threads will be dealt with. On the same track, anyone posting pro cub material outside of those threads will be taken care of as well. The entire point of this new rule is to put it in a place that is easy to hide and ignore for people who don't want to see it.

I can't help but feel that this is going to affect the natural flow of of certain subjects and also turn the two cub threads into wastebasket catch-alls but it is what it is I guess.


 No.98072

The way anti-cub is going to take that is as "the moderation is pro-cub because they're allowing it, and not allowing us to "rationally discuss" in their threads!

Regardless, I think segregating content will stifle threads (per >>98061 ) and lead to a decrease in users overall.

 No.100270

>>100205

The board isn't as dead as you might think. However there's a lot of porn dump images and political speech that gets pruned regularly.

It's also really hard to increase traffic without compromising the integrity of the board. Like enabling political speech would get a large groundswell of users however this would gradually cause interest in the board to decline because people not interested would leave and there'd be only about 5 really active people who would also gradually drop off.

The unfortunate reality is that the furry community is so focused on pornography that attention gets diverted to art sites that host it. People who want discussion generally go to other non-furry related places for it.

Anon if you want more threads why don’t you make some of them? Why complain “nobody’s making new threads and the board is dead” if you’re not participating anyway?

As I said furries tend to only gravitate toward images/porn on image based websites like FA. Any and all discussion furries participate in tends to either be exclusively centered on those websites or they go to non-furry related websites to talk about what they want. There’s not a lot of solutions to this problem other than opening discussion toward more non-furry topics which will only really lead to more /pol/ threads.

Either that or the board gets opened up to more tripfag threads like /animus/ but I don’t think anyone here wants that either since it would just mean mass erp in every thread.

Generally speaking we delete posts that derail threads. Often people will suddenly interject in a random thread "btw pedophiles" and then the thread goes from "paws xd" to "pedos get the bullet too" "Trump said this" etc. I have no idea why people keep demanding they talk about pedophiles in random threads instead of just containing it to a single thread. If people want to discuss the topic in such a way that is specific to furry. IE: "A particular furry pedophile was arrested" or "Furry grooming club arrested by police" have at it.

It annoys a lot of users and causes the board to feel toxic and more like /cow/ or /pol/ when they can't discuss furshit without the topic being changed.

>>101005

None of this is politically motivated it's strictly "what derails threads the most" and it's usually people posting about pedophilia. We also delete posts that derail into general political banter, since it's really inconsiderate to the OP and everyone else on the board who would prefer to talk about furries. People turn to furry because they wanna get away from this shit to begin with.

>>101009

That's a really good question I wish I had an answer to. We do try to prune off-topic political discussion as much as possible but it gets really hard since often a thread will start off strong and then get randomly derailed by a single comment and then there'll be 30 replies to it.

See, normally I would agree with you, but what I have repeatedly observed is that CERTAIN FUCKING PEOPLE refuse to respect the neutrality of a political vacuum. They see political vacuums as implicit invitations to come in and start spewing their particular brand of shit. And if there was no one presenting the opposing viewpoints there to begin with, they start to do things like "This is OUR board, we were ALWAYS here, YOU are the outsider and need to leave!"

Chalk it all up to the decay of discourse, I suppose, but honestly? I'm tired of trying to talk to the left. They don't want to talk. They want to hurt me and silence me. They've made that very clear.

I'm in the process of getting up to speed on his hijinks outside of /fur/. I knew he was retarded but I didn't realize he was so retarded he thought KF would tolerate his bullshit for more than a millisecond.

He's easy enough to spot when he pokes his dumb head out, at least. The autism explains the retard-level determination/fixation, I guess.

OK, so, seriously mods, there has to be something in your toolkit you can use. I wouldn't have really cared if DerpShadowFox had just made a general "sick fucks" thread and dumped his Foxler (and now Forte) sperging in there so I can mock him endlessly for trollshielding. But he's just going to keep making more threads, apparently.

Let's say you deploy Kemo. Do you think Kemo will keep him at bay long enough to make him give up?

>Let's say you deploy Kemo. Do you think Kemo will keep him at bay long enough to make him give up?

Kemo is a double edged sword since it will dramatically lower the amount of people who use the board. If you think it's bad now wait til it gets to the point where there's like 1 post every other day. We generally don't want to do Kemo unless we're forced to like there's a persistent spammer who makes it so nobody wants to post on the board until we get rid of him. With DSF it's easier to just ban him and hope he eventually gives up, and delete his threads if they crop up.

I highly recommend if DSF makes a new post/new thread to report him so we can quickly scrub it. Since the longer his posts stay up the more people reply to him and continue to derail the thread he's in.

There is now a central "sick fucks" thread you can post to your hearts content about furry degenerates in rather than it being spread across 5-6 individual threads. >>101639

Board has been cleaned of a persistent spammer. Sorry for the delay I was playing vidya. Thanks a lot to everyone who wrote reports it really helps to deal with it in a fast way. I'm going to monitor the board closely in-case it crops up again.

Hey, mods? Proposal for new corollary to rule 5. Any unsubstantiated rumormilling or claims pertaining to having evidence of malfeasance by another fandom member without accompanying proof of said malfeasance = ban.

It isn't an understatement to say this is a horrible idea. This is a board where people can use their anonymity to speak freely, not a court of law. Use your brain and research claims on your own, it is not our job to play Snopes. Someone very obviously trolling is shitposting though, and we will take care of that like we do all other shitposting. If seeing people talking shit without a manilla folder of evidence is that triggering, I suggest hiding the thread dedicated to it.

I petition the removal of this thread >>104453 as it's a completely unnecessary thread that could easily have been a post in the thread it's advertising, clutters up the board and makes the staff look like complete retards for doing so.

Can we make links to closed-source chats and phoneposter chats like Telegram, Skype, Discord, et cetera, against an actual rule with an actual ban? We don't need more NSA or CIA spyware in our lives than we already have, and the shilling is so low-quality it may as well be considered to be spam or to break rule 1 (irredeemable shitposting)

>>26278

>"No shilling group chats. Rooms made specifically for /fur/, to organize or another purpose, are fine in related threads."

I wouldn't want a rule like that. Group chats aren't inherently the problem, and many imageboards and boards have IRC channels which don't negatively affect them.

It's the culture that surrounds many of these shitty chat programs people use, rather than external group chats themselves.


 No.104496

Now they're spamming both Discord and Steam spyware.


 No.104499

I'd honestly be fine if they were advertising an IRC channel or XMPP (Jabber) group chat. I'm just another anon though.

the main reason the thread was locked rather than deleted was to show to people for a reasonable length of time why it was locked to begin with. After a certain length of time I might delete the thread once emotions about it have died down.

>>104475

Generally speaking the mods delete that shit on sight. We should make a rule for it I agree. Generally we put it under low effort OPs. The main reason it's deleted has more to do with raid attempts/honeypots since "an official /fur/ discord" would be a massive target for leaks/doxxing. That and discords siphon off users and cause the board traffic to dip even lower.

It can also lead to tripfagging/avatarfagging in random threads which isn't desirable. The point of the board is to be anonymous and furries are already magnets for drama.


 No.104777

I can't wait for the Lulz cancer meme to spread to here, and the staff would probably go along with it, so they can pretend everyone who says things they don't like is "one guy". I'm surprised it didn't happen months ago, because the best way to discredit many voices saying what you don't wish to hear is to deny they are many.


 No.104797

After you lock threads, you should really consider deleting them after 48 hours. They clutter the front page and catalog otherwise.

Examples:

>>104751

>>104540

>>99800

>>96747

Two days is enough time for OPs to see their thread has been locked and to read the mod's reply.

I think the regularly locked ones are more important, as bumplocked threads still allow discussion, but that's all your choice, of course. A lot of the bumplocked ones, however, haven't been replied to in quite some time, weeks if not longer, so they likely wouldn't be missed.

Is there a reason why a medium-slow-paced board like /fur/ is 15 pages long rather than 10 pages? The fewer pages a board has, the easier it self-moderates and the fresher it feels, rather than feeling like an archive.


 No.105562

I find it strange how /fur/ here is far more interested in politics and social shit rather than posting furry shit like pics, stories etc.

Quick question, why aren't IDs enabled on this board?

It would make filtering derailment and pointing out samefagging so much easier that I don't think the negatives of having IDs would be much of an issue.

>1. [IDs would make filtering derailment and pointing out samefagging so much easier

>2. [Therefore] the negatives of having IDs would not be much of an issue.

That doesn't make any sense dude, you just made two separate statements, "X has positive attributes" doesn't mean "X's negative attributes don't matter". UR DUMB


 No.106369

>>106365

Yeah, I may be a little bit completely fucking retarded because I was trying to say the positives outweigh the negatives, but ended up making a non-argument.

The only negative I see is a slight uptick in avatarfagging or namefagging which, on other boards with IDs enabled, is a relative non-issue especially compared to the quality of life improvement that IDs bring.
