It's a combination of a lot of problems. On some boards, the older oldfags have grown tired and weary and much less tolerant of the usual shenanigans. The newfags are more obnoxious because they were raised on a diet of "ironic shitposting" and corrupted memes. Then there's all the shills.. and on top of all that shit, there's the groups of faggots whose only source of entertainment on 8chan is going to other boards and trying to start meta drama… which doesn't help, because some of the BOs are largely fucking terrible, or at least acting inconsistently and trying to use their powers to try and be LE EPIC MAYMAY MAN because they want to be popular and celebrated more than they want a smooth-running board.

Now hold on there, Jethro, I didn't say 4chan had higher posting quality and you're delusional if you think that– depending on which board it is you're talking about.

4/pol/ is better, and far less paranoid.

8/tg/ is better by leagues.

4/v/ is about the same as 8/v/, but the difference in pace and activity is astronomical.

8/co/ is much better, and doesn't have obnoxious Tumblresque administration.

4/k/ actually has activity.

What, and 8/v/ isn't? For the most part 8/v/ has the same threads prettied up by making the OP larger than one sentence, and you can get away with template threads easy if you word your question or statement differently. As far as I'm concerned the primary differences with /8/v/ are the massive change of pace, padding out its catalog with generals because of some bizarre refusal to use /vg/, and being much more flagrant about certain subjects being verboten– due to the much much slower pace, one shitty "overcuck" post doesn't get lost admist a sea of people actually talking about it or the thread just dying.

>4/pol/ is better, and far less paranoid.

It's more that it's seen less balkanisation; the way 8/pol/ has gone is more or less single-topic (North American politics from a right-wing perspective) and if you don't like that topic you'll hate it (if you do like it it's somewhat in-depth).

>4/v/ is about the same as 8/v/, but the difference in pace and activity is astronomical.

That depends largely on the thread, 8/v/ has declined accross the board but it isn't quite as bad as 4/v/ yet.

>4/k/ actually has activity.

4/k/ has been ruined by WoT/War Thunder kiddies and Wheraboos out the ass. 8/k/ has a very different, more technical feel also.

>8/co/ is much better, and doesn't have obnoxious Tumblresque administration.

Yes, very much agree.

>padding out its catalog with generals because of some bizarre refusal to use /vg/,

The splintering off of /vg/ from /v/ back on halfchan was a terrible idea: on the one hand /v/ lost a lot of threads that actually discussed games and on the other /vg/ inherently turned up the cancer of generals to 11 and devolved into permanent circle-jerks. It's a good thing that did not happen here. /vr/ caused similar issues on halfchan by creating one niche, slower board and again removing some of the better threads from /v/.


 No.45359

It's bad vs less bad.

I could never recommend using 8chan /pol/ to anyone because there's no real discussion on that board, it's just a big mod enforced circlejerk and people constantly get banned for ridiculous reasons. People on 8/pol/ used to get banned for posting anime pictures because "anime is /intl/", now the mods themselves post anime, 8/pol/ used to ban supporters of Donald Trump now they ban people for not supporting Trump. It's ridiculous not a worthwhile board at all.

I'm already back. Kinda fun browsing /pol/ and not a newfag's idea of what /pol/ might be that 8ch provides.

>>45344

>It's more that it's seen less balkanisation; the way 8/pol/ has gone is more or less single-topic (North American politics from a right-wing perspective) and if you don't like that topic you'll hate it (if you do like it it's somewhat in-depth).

I'd have to agree with that. Both of them still talk about roughly the same things but 4/pol/ will allow topics that would never see the light of day on 8/pol/, typically as a direct result of the fact that "politics" is such a broad subject and they can't willy-nilly split up boards like 8ch allows for, and is a much healthier board as a result. Really, I'm surprised /leftypol/ wasn't conceived sooner, both groups are big enough that they maintain a consistently high spot on the rankings with /pol/'s activity slipping down to about what /leftypol/'s spot is on the reg now. I don't buy that horseshit about /leftypol/ botting to get where they are for a single moment, absolutely nothing in their catalog suggests bot activity, last I checked the top boards go by active users, and though it's much much slower than /v/ or /pol/ there's also a massive taper-off of activity once you go past those boards anyways.

>That depends largely on the thread, 8/v/ has declined accross the board but it isn't quite as bad as 4/v/ yet.

I find that 4/v/ is consistently higher quality depending on the subject at hand, and there's far fewer subjects arbitrarily labeled forbidden (ie Overwatch, Undertale, FNAF; 8/v/ conflates them with their terrible fanbases while 4/v/ will entertain a discussion about the games themselves while laughing at the fanbases). There's also all the autism surrounding template threads, but who honestly gives half a fuck about template threads when "what did he meme by this?" will produce an identical thread to "Character's motivations were nuanced and empathetic, and I really enjoyed this game on the whole".

>>45345

>The splintering off of /vg/ from /v/ back on halfchan was a terrible idea: on the one hand /v/ lost a lot of threads that actually discussed games and on the other /vg/ inherently turned up the cancer of generals to 11 and devolved into permanent circle-jerks.

4/v/'s treatment of generals I recall as hit-and-miss. There were actual game threads but there were just as many faggot-infested threads, but I can agree that the creation of /vg/ led to it primarily becoming exclusively the latter.

>It's a good thing that did not happen here.

It's good but it happened due to the autistic hatred of and inability to not pay attention to tripfags. On the other hand the hatred of tripfags (primarily the 4AM thread users which baffles me because nobody pissing and moaning about those threads seems to actually use them to any degree or seem to be smart enough to report and filter the parties responsible) led to the entire email field being replaced with a dropdown "sage" option and a pervasive insistence that you can just use an outside side to identify yourself, which is cumbersome and a hacky workaround to just banning the goddamned tripcodes and retaining the original system.

>/vr/ caused similar issues on halfchan by creating one niche, slower board and again removing some of the better threads from /v/.

I don't remember anybody actually banning or reprimanding over retro threads after /vr/'s creation, though /vr/'s creation in general was really weird and the board was and is unnecessary. Fucking comfy board once you get past the "THIS IS NOT RETRO BECAUSE I SAY SO" autism though.

Splitting the generals into their own board was one of the smartest moves the 4chan mods made, generals had the potential to stagnate 4/v/ and turn the board into a shitty reddit clone. /vr/ I don't agree with though, if I was the 4chan mods I'd shut that board down and role it into /v/.

Generals are redditor ghettos. They didn't exist on 4chan until around 2012 when the redditors that used both sites wanted to bring redditor culture to 4chan.

Are you a weeb? I ask because that's the one area I know (and care) little about and so threads about weebshit on 4/v/ are the only thing that could be better that I'd not have noticed.

>and there's far fewer subjects arbitrarily labeled forbidden (ie Overwatch, Undertale, FNAF; 8/v/ conflates them with their terrible fanbases while 4/v/ will entertain a discussion about the games themselves while laughing at the fanbases).

On the one hand that's a bit of a problem, on the other there is a need to prevent viral marketing. I'd prefer it if mods were much more lax a few months after release when shills really aren't a thing.

>4/v/'s treatment of generals I recall as hit-and-miss. There were actual game threads but there were just as many faggot-infested threads, but I can agree that the creation of /vg/ led to it primarily becoming exclusively the latter.

Generals needed to be limited to once per week or less.

>I don't remember anybody actually banning or reprimanding over retro threads after /vr/'s creation, though /vr/'s creation in general was really weird and the board was and is unnecessary. Fucking comfy board once you get past the "THIS IS NOT RETRO BECAUSE I SAY SO" autism though.

Old threads weren't banned but /vr/ because the default home for some of the best posters from /v/. Unlike /vg/ the board itself is good but the effect it had on /v/ was terrible.

>Splitting the generals into their own board was one of the smartest moves the 4chan mods made, generals had the potential to stagnate 4/v/ and turn the board into a shitty reddit clone.

The thing about generals is that, circle-jerky and stagnant thought they were, they were the majority of the threads that were actually about video game: removing them (and the posters who frequented them) accelerated /v/'s decline into the blue /b/. The correct response was a rule like 'don't make generals threads more than once a week/half-week/day and for mods/janitors to do their fucking jobs and enforce it. You keep the benefits of generals without their downsides instead of throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

>Are you a weeb? I ask because that's the one area I know (and care) little about and so threads about weebshit on 4/v/ are the only thing that could be better that I'd not have noticed.

Nope, I legitimately stand by the stance that 4chan threads vary compared to 8ch's but have higher highs and lower lows. Its moderation is odd, though, they're lax on some things in comparison to 8/v/ and severely strict on others, but I suppose the same could apply the other way around. I guess at least 4chan's janitors and mods don't typically mouthbreathe about anonymity and quality posting and then shitpost and livestream themselves trying to be popular like Mark does.

>On the one thand that's a bit of a problem, on the other there is a need to prevent viral marketing.

Define "viral marketing", seeing as 8/v/'s idea of rooting out shills is just shitposting in particular threads about games that are not being forced, do not have (1)s praising things without going into specifics, and do not have blind defenders of the game in question. Case in point being Overwatch where each and every thread devolves into a fucking screaming match about shills and le blizzcucks when nobody actually talking about the game itself brings up Blizzard or defends their recent business practices or actions. In that situation the only people bringing up Blizzard/shills are the people fucking complaining about them.

>Generals needed to be limited to once per week or less.

A hard limit on generals if they're present at all is something I can agree on.

>Old threads weren't banned but /vr/ became the default home for some of the best posters from /v/. Unlike /vg/ the board itself is good but the effect it had on /v/ was terrible.

That I can agree on, it's something of a /leftypol/ effect on /v/ where missing posters and missing points-of-view results in board stagnation. Though I guess that circles back around to /vr/'s creation being really fucking weird and unnecessary, I don't know what Moot was smoking.

I ask because looking specifically at 4/v/'s catalog for the first time and years it's fucking terrible, worse than I've ever seen it. Other halfchan boards are different but /v/ is all but unusable.

> I guess at least 4chan's janitors and mods don't typically mouthbreathe about anonymity and quality posting and then shitpost and livestream themselves trying to be popular like Mark does.

Mark's attention-whoring is an annoyance but that's a rare enough occurrence it doesn't matter too much for the board as a whole. I'd like him gone but dealing with Mark is very low down on the list of priorities for improving both /v/ and 8chan as a whole.

>Define "viral marketing", seeing as 8/v/'s idea of rooting out shills is just shitposting in particular threads about games that are not being forced, do not have (1)s praising things without going into specifics, and do not have blind defenders of the game in question.

As I said viral marketing is only an issue in the month leading up to release and for perhaps the first week afterwards. Anyone still calling out shills in OW threads is overly paranoid (outside of major updates anyway). The best solution though is just to filter the relevant anons.
