/games/ news

-We're nearly 3 weeks old, and at 2 weeks old we made it to 1200 posts in spite of the dry spell that happened last week

-E3 is going on so everyone's on /v/ for the disappointment, just hang tight and traffic will flow again

Sitewide news

-Summer is slower than usual and yet still summerfags seem to be flowing in to the larger boards

-Banner and flag creation are still down

Considering you could take something like say Gundam and make a quest thread (Which halfchan /tg/ did, see Bright Quest) It stands to reason as so long as it's within the confines of the board I doubt it'll get banned.

cobalt is also being particularly retarded about those rules too

A TF2V thread over there got locked because there was already a TF2C thread up. It was then unlocked when the TF2C thread got to page 14. Considering that when TF2C first became a thing, none of those threads got locked because there happened to be a modern TF2 thread up as well. It makes the decision to lock the thread all the more worse because now not only are the vols over there locking for stupid ass reasons but it shows they clearly don't know a damn thing about the games their own users play.

>one work shift later

Sorry about that. To continue from where I left off, wolfspider is an avatarfag that typically haunts the 4am, ROB threads and SS13 threads on /v/. He first showed up on the board during the early exodus days, mostly in the Steam Friends threads. Thanks to him, those threads went from being a place for people to share their steam names and build friends lists to being the forerunner of the 4am threads. When the SFTs were banned from the board he moved exclusively to the 4am threads until two years ago when he started haunting the SS13 threads. It started with begging whoever was currently running the server at the time to use his sprite models. From that point on server drama started dominating the threads and he was at the center of it. Last year, I helped administer an 8/v/ SS13 server and had the distinct pleasure of seeing his faggotry firsthand. He made a HUGE stink about the owner of that server not using his sprite models and begged in-game to be perma-banned, the host ignored him until he started ruining the rounds for everyone else, resulting in the host obliging the perma-ban request. After receiving the ban, he let loose on the threads about how he was perma-banned and dindu nuffin. Two server interations and hosts later and now wolfspider owns the current 8/v/ server.

While I can't pin the OP of >>1737 as being made by him, I can safely say the guy using the niggerspeak in it, >>1760, is definitely him as his posting habits never change. Do a crtl+f for "tbh" in the SS13 thread on /v/, >>>/v/13016794, and look for thread ID 8d9d02 to see what I mean. To reiterate my point from the other thread, if you let this guy get a foothold here, like having a SS13 thread centered around his server, then we'll never be rid of him.

I don't recommend banning or disallowing discussion of SS13 in general on /games/, despite the fact that Rule 8 here would DEFINITELY apply to it. I do recommend, and strongly urge, that wolfspider's server not get it's own thread here. Wolfspider may not be part of the moderation cancer on /v/ but he's definitely part of the shitposting cancer.

From what I can see the posting style matches the guy on the thread and this guy >>1766 and the OP of the thread is copypasted from an ID with a single post, so you may have a case. I'm trying to get in touch with a couple of friends who play SS13 and see if they can substantiate your claim. It's a duplicate thread and advertising a /v/ server, so I'll delete it, but no ban till I can get some confirmation. He can advertise the server on the old thread, but if those friends do back up your claim, then I'll delete and ban.

I've stopped avatarfaging.

I only made a thread here because someone suggested it over on /tg/ and only had reason to look after it, I admit I messed up and didn't bother looking to see if you'd already had one but quite honestly the board seemed fairly dead so I assumed no one would actually post in it, I do apologize for that.

he's very biased on the few things that happened, which he wasn't even part of and only knows from second hand knowledge, so is thus only half correct, if you'd like me to get really into whichever drama I would be fine to do so.

finally it's as I've said, why preemptively ban someone based on rep alone? sure I could agree with it if I was still living up to my rep but do you know that I will? if his claims were as he said shouldn't I already be shitting up various threads avatarfagging by no or does that not even matter here.


81319c  No.1772

>>1771

I see the thread. I suppose I can't ban you, but your rep is obviously bad, something you seem to admit, so I'll keep an eye on you. I doubt that we'll "never be rid of you" even if you live up to your shittery, in which case a quick ban and delete will take care of everything. I couldn't get confirmation from my friends, so your thread stays, but I'll ask /tg/ just in case.

But your behavior back when sierra's server was the current iteration of 8/v/ SS13 was something I saw firsthand. Something I failed to bring up about your behavior then was how you showed up to the mumble that sierra and I were using and made verbal threats to him after that permaban. If I'm "very biased" against you then its from having witnessed your bullshit at both close range and at a distance, over the course of nearly three years now.

I'll respect your decision to leave him be, but I reserve the right to post a smug "I told you so" when that quick ban and delete gets delivered.

Also, not sure if this VPN hopping so I can play Dragon's Dogma Online that's causing my thread ID to change or if it's the weather knocking out my internet repeatedly over the course of the day. Sorry if that's causing any confusion.

Their own sites are completely worthless because of endless spam, which they can't delete because it would make them "rulecucks".

So, having ruined their own site, and being utterly incapable of acknowledging the reason why (because they're too immature to admit that they were wrong), they go to some other non-ruined site, and then immediately start demanding that the site should be more like their old site.

To put it simply, they're the same as the Californians that evacuated to Austin.

As brainless as he is, the fatass does have his own form of logic that he operates by.

Will this result in my twitter followers praising me?

Will this increase board traffic?

If he can get a yes to 2/3 of those questions then he'll do it. If not then he won't act. Banning ROB threads AFTER they were officially put on hiatus will give him one yes at most. If he were smart (heh) and banned them when they were a problem then he'd have 3 out of 3.

Sorry for the late reply, christmas kept me occupied

If we get a gamenight going then I won't be able to host. Third World Internet will give you atleast 120ms, more if you aren't in europe.

We could still think about just serverhopping, also since it's already questionable how well this will go or how many of us own or are willing to pirate the same games we might aswell include mediocre games in our options.

Maybe make a list of games you are all willing to play so we can find something. Post the games you think are objectively shit but would play anyway too, at worst you just get bullied for it anyway.

Not yet mentioned games we could also try are Killing Floor 1 & 2, any Counter-Strike, Insurgency mod or standalone, Chivalry, Postal 2 coop mod, Pulsar: Lost Colony was fun with /v/ some months ago, since pretty much everyone here currently is from /monster/ we could also think about trying Planetside 2 again, Red Orchestra 1 or 2, The Ship - some might still have it installed from the recent /radcorp/ gamenight, Star Wars: Empire at War allows up to 9 players, any old Stronghold, Didn't try Sven Co-op but it's supposedly good (and free), also Battlefront as already mentioned. More suggestions welcome.

This rule is really vague. Other cancerous communities like what? Sonic? Pokemon? To other anons, they'll see the rule and sum it as banning games that you personally don't like.

That's the problem, it's too open. Such a vague rule needs to be reworded.

Honestly this drama about rule 8 only started when people started crossposting about /games/.

Rule 8 is fine in my opinion, it brings a easy "The buck stops here" option in case a general decides that they should just exist for the sake of existing.

The only rewording I could possibly see is this:

>8. Games with cancerous imageboard communities are banned


98833e  No.2533

I think the rule is just fine with just tumblrtale and kosherwatch banned for now. Because, what constitutes as a cancerous imageboard community?


91658a  No.2534

>>2533

Touhou's community is cancerous but it doesn't spread to 8chan, so its fine.

Tumblrtale's community is cancerous and it spread to 8chan, so it wasn't fine.

That's my general idea behind this.

Good thing Tumblrtale's community is dead. Anyway, this rule works more as a unwritten rule.

Thing is that they'll feel as if they're walking on eggshells and having to go through the trouble everytime to ask. Rule 8 is fine, but get rid of "and other games with really cancerous communities" and keep it as an unwritten rule.

I agree with this. It's pretty obvious which communities are unbearable at this point so you would know what raises a red flag and what doesn't.

>>2541

>If it gets deleted? you've got your answer

Problem with this is if a mod or janitor misses the thread accidentally. The anon would think this particular community would be fine. It's far fetched I know, but it's a possibility.

Fair point, I'll get around to editing that rule, but the wording of it will be a bit tricky. Or we could just get rid of it altogether and have it as more or less an unwritten rule. What do the rest of you feel we should do?

I'd think just get rid of it entirely because most of the cancer from those games already violate the other rules i.e. erp and porndumps,

I have great hope for /games/ starting march because supposedly cuckchan will disable v1 captcha by then so drooling retards will flood /v/.

And the resident cakejew will not handle it in any ways.

Post quality is already down by significant amount.

>disabling captcha again

Why are they doing that? It never turns out well.

As for the rest if your post it seems we'll have to wait and see. What do you want to happen exactly? It seems that the bad poster population greatly overshadows the good posters, so if you want them to come over chances are you'll get the shitters.

because hiroshimoot is a horrible being, and I was implying that quality posters from our /v/ will move here once cuckchan floods in.

>>2560

Disabling v1 captcha means they're rolling out v2 captcha, not that you can post without passing it.

Very different.

Well, I know a guy who can host it. And I may have told hold that off for a couple of weeks thanks to a lot of work coming my way right now.

Good day /games/, I am the BO of /animu/. My board is supposed to be an alternative to the much larger legacy board /a/ which recently became active enough to be in the top 20 on the board list and yours is an alternative to the much larger legacy board /v/. Because of these similarities I'd like to ask if you could add our board name to your sister board list and of course in turn I'll add your board name to my friend list in the meta sticky.


cf31a2  No.2636

>>2633

We need all the activity we can get. I'll just post on the /animu/ meta thread to confirm it's you. Thank you for the thought.

Not sure if you saw the reply in the meta thread but consider it done.

Don't worry about /v/, try and help keep this place active.

>Cuckchan filth is swarming.

Again? What happened this time.

They might've already disabled v1 captcha and force the google one.

or retards are waiting for their bans to expire by shitting up catalog

How would folks here feel about a "general" thread where you can just throw in posts that aren't worth making a whole thread for?

It's a new golden age for /v/ alternatives.


a60d79  No.2811

>>2810

yeah I think it might be a good point to either concentrate or band together the boards. start pulling vidya threads from /v/ and posting them on /vg/ or here on /games/


a9fe21  No.2812

>>2810

>>2811

/vg/ BO says he's up for at the very least /games/ and /vg/ putting each other in that list of boards on the top. Maybe even fulling merging the userbases and vols but I guess that depends how willing fags are to compromise.


a60d79  No.2820

>>2812

Thinking about it now /vg/ needs to survive.

To anyone reading this head to >>>/vg/


601853  No.2824

>>2820

While I would like /vg/ to survive, it seems more people are bitching in the meta thread about how shit /v/ is rather than generating discussion or activity on the overall board.

Being angry at mark and the state of /v/ is fine, just use it in a constructive way.


3695d9  No.2828

>>2812

Board merges are a thing? If so, I'll actually have to consider that not like we have that great a userbase anyhow. At the end of the day, I just want a /v/ board not run by an incompetent tard like Mark, I'd encourage all straddlers here moving over to /vg/ so long as the BO is reasonable enough.


a60d79  No.2830

point it out and just post in the video game threads.

It looks like someone beat me to it.

I feel like it would have been hypocritical of me to say that while this place is borderline dead anyway.

I'd like to post here while it's possible.

Shit just sometimes is too hard. At least there are no shills here

We should just move the cyoas to here, the mod in there is a faggot and his board is chokefull of (literal) cuck shit. Also, >>>/adventure/.
