Alt-title: Where the Fuck is Everyone?! Edition

Business as usual: Post complaints, drama, and general bitching here. Discuss board operations and banners, as well.

It's been 3 weeks and there's still a lot of missing functionality from 8chan. There's talk of a group board between /monster/, /tg/, /v/, and some other places, but board creation still isn't back up, and neither are dozens of the smaller boards. There are also rumors circulating that antifa, after losing the Battle of Berkley, have taken to lurking on halfchan and have been starting problems on /tg/ and other boards, which might explain some of the newfags we've been getting.

I agree. /monster/ is too focusd on their own stuff. I like going there but I don't want their Quests and very specific "stop liking what I don't like"-rules around. /v/ is just shitposting central, might as well go to halchan. If the most positive outcome would happen and everyone just posts there peacefully, then it would just suck activity out of /monster/, /tg/ and maybe even /v/.

I don't even see the point in it. If I want to talk about a topic related to one of those boards, I'd go to the board.

I'm unwilling to give up just yet, but this sort of thing has happened before. 8chan goes down, comes back up after a few days, and we've got a fraction of the users. The problem is that we don't bounce back to where we started. So each time it happens, the userbase gets smaller and smaller.

At this point, I'm entirely willing to lay the blame on Codemonkey and Jim, who only seem interested in using this place to promote the Goldwater.

That's because downtime represents an exit point. Ever played one of those shitty clicker games or something else that requires you to do so daily/regularly like hitting up the gym? Well, if you miss one time you'll skip out on doing it because oh well what harm is there to just missing one thing? But if you do so again and again, you are less to return to doing it at all. It's like if Heathcliff went on hiatus for three months or so and returned after that, retaining only a fraction of its readerbase because they escaped the routine of reading Heathcliff.

 No.308277

Kinda, they're a bit like the irregular flock who don't come here all the time, or they recently discovered the board but left when it was down for four days. The company might return in time, but like Chrow said don't expect it to return to its glory days. That's not to say that the irregulars contribute nothing: Lamia-kun might have dropped off the face of the planet but his story is one of the board's finest.


 No.308278

>>308275

It's more like people go somewhere else during the downtime instead of here. Then, they find that they like some other place better then here and leave.

Without a reason to stop going here, people aren't going to be looking for alternatives. Once they start looking, they'll probably find someplace that they think is better than here.

The only real solution is to make 8/tg/ better than the alternatives.


 No.308279

 No.308286

>>308263

The thing is, we already allow /v/ stuff here, as long as it follows the whole Commander Keen rule. Vidya discussion should be fine, as long as its /tg/-related. We also allow a lot of /monster/ stuff here (just look at the lewd worldbuilding thread) - again, it's fine as long as its /tg/-related. Hell, I'm pretty sure even /a/ and /co/ content is allowed here - we have the regular Dungeon Meshi thread, and we used to have /co/ storytimes regularly.

So I don't really see a reason for a new board. The only thing that's going to attract is a bunch of autists who'll scream and shitposting about everything (probably the same faggots who're behind the idea of fracturing the boards because they didn't work the way they wanted them to work), with no actual /tg/ discussion being had.

If they want to talk and mess around, they can come over here and talk and mess around, but they'll have to adapt to us. Not divide the boards even more than they are, or cater to crossposter who've been kicked off from their respective boards for being loud faggots.

A group board? /v/'s got plenty of user base to lose on a group board, but why would you want to invite people from a board that's mostly dedicated to vidya-related shitposting at this point? And isn't there a good reason /monster/-content generally isn't allowed here outside of the rule of relevency? Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but a group board just doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

Thought not.

I think most only post when they truly have something to say. For example I enjoy WoD stuff, but rare is the time there's anything to talk about baring ' Toreador blood thrall wat do?'

Oh, it's not a problem as long as this happens on /monster/. I'm a guest ther, I'll behave.

This is the attitude I support. Not looking for something better, but making what we have better than everything else.

>>308259 >>308266 >>308286 >>308302

It's incredibly easy to disguise talk about vidya as /tg/-related. As long as you're not a jackass about it and show up here just because you were banned on /v/, people will usually humor just about any discussion vaguely tinged with lore or mechanics talk. People will even settle for obviously made-up greentext stories, also.

Making a new board just to cover some vague need for vidya and tabletop stuff doesn't make much sense to me, especially because we know that you can never get a 100% transfer of users, so it just amounts to even less activity on multiple boards. Even the sister boards listed atop don't sit well with me. We'd all be better off gathering on one board, rather than fracturing into smaller near-dead micro-communities that no one knows about.

This was the main reason I offered some support for a shared board for quests, cyoas, and civ/builder stuff. I don't give a fuck about any of those things, but it was the smarter option for maintaining an active community.

>>308307 >>308321 >>308302

>And isn't there a good reason /monster/-content generally isn't allowed here outside of the rule of relevency?

Monster girls, and similar content, isn't disallowed, but there's no real reason to come here just to talk about /monster/-type topics or have their kind of threads here since /monster/ still exists.

If someone wanted to discuss games where you can play as monster girls or have a world-building thread about it, that's fine by me. And, as much as it might piss off some of you, it would still not be permissable to go and shit up that thread because some anon believes it shouldn't be allowed for some reason or another.

>>308339

I'm just going to give up on quoting posts for this: Recruit newfags. This will always be hard because shilling will attract about 5 angry faggots looking to start shit for every 1 person who might click around for 5 minutes, get bored, then leave.

If we do get a mass exodus or perhaps even recruit some refugees from halfchan, then it's a matter of trial by fire. Wanting to retain every possible user just for the sake of having them isn't ideal. You won't be able to teach everyone who shows up how to behave, and many will leave. This is fine. What we want are the people who are patient enough to stay, and willing to learn to play by our rules.

Unfortunately, doing this means spending a lot of time in perpetual frustration, telling newfags to get their shit together. In some cases, bringing in newfags will just mean we end up with a bunch of people looking for a new place to plop their general thread.

>>308353

As an idiot who spends too much time on /v/ and not enough on any of the other boards, having 'lurk more fagit' being taken seriously along with not having incompetent or overbearing moderation is the best way to actually get users to stay. With boards like /v/, it's full of idiots, making the board awful to go through (the best example would be a shitload of people calling it /v/eddit quite often), while the shit moderation will twist rules whenever they feel like it constantly create situations where some people get banned with all their posts deleted (potentially deleting the thread their post was in due to being the OP if not multiple threads on the board because they're that stupid) for a single post that didn't do much of anything and someone who's intentionally ruining multiple threads is completely ignored for months on end, until they're banned for no more than 3 days and can have the ban removed as little as 5 minutes later because they complained enough, further making the board worse. With boards like /a/ and the two political boards, Orwellian moderation does a good job of keeping people in line, but such strict moderation kicks out anyone and everyone who doesn't want a week+ ban for forgetting a period or has an opinion/thread idea that isn't what the mods want to enforce on the board. Granted, it all comes down to the users, and if you have shit users, you're almost guaranteed to have equally shit moderation.

tl;dr If the newfag refuses to lurk before posting a whole bunch of garbage, they aren't worth keeping.

Even I know how that can be. You look at all these things, consider all these different topics, and you can't even come up with a single thing to post about. It sometimes feels like we've been at this for so long that we've forgotten what we're supposed to do.

My best suggestions would be to ask questions and show appreciation or interest. You don't have to have a serious curiosity about a topic, but it will give others a reason to chime in. Likewise, showing interest in a thread might not be a huge contribution, but it bumps the thread, shows the OP and others that people are listening, and potentially spurs on more activity.

No one here should demand that every thread and every post be gold. It would be nice, but that's not realistic. The most I can ask for is that every thread not be shit, though.

And just as a passing thought, because this stuck in my mind, something I saw on endchan during the exodus. Another person had taken the BO seat on /tg/ and someone posted some lengthy advice to the guy and other users. This part stuck out to me:

>You need to dump your preconceptions formed from other boards. Come at this as a totally new endeavor, let it shape itself organically and not, as you are likely thinking, how it ought to be.

We need to ask ourselves what we can make of /tg/. Not what it has be or how it should be, according to halfchan traditions. We've become used to general threads and efficient use of recurring threads like the PDF sharing and QTDDTOT thead, but what else do we have? What else could we have? It's something to think about, at least.

>5AM and my brain ain't working right, but is this similiar

No, it's a traditional style of wargame, it's just one person is hosting the actual battle with their own minis while others control them and give the host their orders.

The host then post pictures of the results for that phase/turn.

So say some anon has a couple of Warhammer 40k armies, a table they're not going to be using for a while, and no one to play with.

He makes two equivalent forces out of those armies, post pictures of them and the battlefield he's created on the table, then opens a thread asking for sign ups.

Think of it kinda like a cross between "Twitch Plays" and Chess by mail.

Minor boards not in competition with the original main boards of 4chan don't really count. To my knowledge, /v is the only one of those relatively stable. Maybe /pol/, but I wouldn't count them given the whole full autist specialty board for neonazis what booted out anyone else.

Certainly boards like /k/ are dying, it seems.

More seriously, though, the reason I usually avoid posting my interests as it were, is they're usually worldbuilding on more natural inclinations of creatures, their habits, stereotypes, and behaviors, as opposed to the more common concrete worldbuilding with actual sustenance, characters, and structures.

a sort of hybrid board is the same kind of thing we pushed on /quest/ and the like a few months back. it'd probably be hypocritical not to try it but I honestly don't think it will succed. mostly due to the fact that if we were going to do such a drastic shift we could do better than another shitty 8chan board who's functionality is held together with cellophane tape.

part of the problem is that its getting harder and harder to justify 8chan's existence. 8chan started out as a 4chan alternative with an active developer who was passionate about free speech. Well, hotwheels is gone, his role in the site greatly diminished if not gone, and codemonkey and jim don't seem all that enthusiastic about having the same principles.

In fact I'm sure the only thing still keeping us together is not wanting to lose the smaller comfy communities we've created together and not wanting to lose the small amount of culture we've generated on our own here. The other thing keeping us here is the fact that we get to pick our moderators here where we might not get that chance if we were to bite the bullet and go back or go to some other board or make a hybrid.

That seems like the main problems we face right now.

The 404 screen blames the Alacrity Demon. Alacrity is speed, which is also a drug. Demons are from hell, ergo the Alacrity Demon is a hell of a drug. This of course is cocaine, but cocaine needs a manifestation of sorts to interact with the world. And there is only one man fit for this job.

6PPH is about right, I don't post in threads that don't catch my attention or I've said all that I can. Sometimes it can be zero PPH even before the hack. But since I use a VPN now that might skew the UID thing. Still though, some of the other boards have more or less recovered to a passable level of activity and even a one or two boards is actually thriving now (excluding /pol/ and /v/, /leftypol/ relies on bots). Although those PPH numbers seems off, I actually went out of my way to do rough math with the top ten boards and I got pretty close to the average. For /pol/ half the activity is in bumplocked threads, or very old threads and even though /v/ had a permanent loss of 100 more UIDs it is somehow more active then it was before the hack.

>How do I play YuGiOh in Pathfinder?

First off, breakdown the premise: Magic torture-porn shenanigans with a huge helping of mind-rape.

With that in mind, go play as a magic-user that specialises in spells of conjuration and summoning: Magic that deals with powers and entities from the terrifyingly remote reaches of space and time, all for the sole purpose of exacting magically enforced wagers struck with people. Which is one of the most brutally excessive, but otherwise typical uses of magic anyway.

Also, throw in some dark magic fuckery: Evil wizards are always looking to prolong their lives, and to cure their rheumatoid arthritis. With life force transfer, the victim dies when the spirit is literally forced out of the body to make room for the caster's life force; with life force exchange, the spirits of the caster and victim swap bodies; with magic jar, the wizard and victim share the same body (albeit temporarily). All these in-game spells are a valid means of prolonging a villain's life, allowing them to enjoy all the pleasures and benefits of eternal youth; thus effectively extending his or her mortal lifetime almost indefinitely – certainly far beyond the range of normal humans.

And remember to throw in stuff about cults, old gods, and antediluvian civilisations. Pretty standard tabletop fare.

>That

>Bad

Barely even entry level, it was porn, and it was only the more extreme eastern half of it, I was just about to post the Western stuff before you rudely intervened.

You might call me salty, but as far as I'm concerned, you fucked up a perfectly fine chain for the sake of one reactionary faggot, and it's not like I posted for shock value either, because I actually went out my way to detail my posts, save for the first two, which were essentially wonky to begin, and I'd be promising you faggots that porn much earlier in other threads and there was even given enthusiasm for it being handed over.

To top that off, the western stuff which was about to be posted was more tame stuff, the stupid fucking OP didn't even identify any of the images I posted which shows how fucking worthless and plebian he is.

Pathetic, as if brain consumption on orgasm is fucking hard guro, it's about as light as hymen busting with light battle-scarred porn to hard rape, and you fucking know it.

Infact, to top that off, I'm certain there are a number of already popular D&D fiction which engrosses itself in the description of Illithid feeding, both book, module, splatbook, and the occasional bit of home written fan stuff.

You goddanm fucked up and you know it Chrow, that was a fine set of Final Fantasy Tactic and 6 Illithid tentacle fucking porn and you know it, and you're a fucking low-level pussy who is the same kind of incompetent cancer, I even filled out all five image posts unlike that worthless sub-shit scum of an OP who called that fucking edge-fap cuckchan shit lewd, even having to correct him, and you even had the better option of just deleting the images or even posting a fair warning.

One little bitch nigger whines to you and THIS is what you do? Holy fuck, so I guess that means I've no reason to dump a Slaanesh folder, or even continue those lewd Illithid thread writeups if you're going to be THIS banhappy.

The sad part about that lackluster display of moderation is that it is for a subject to obscure and unheard of everyone will just call be salty, butthurt or tell me to fuck off elsewhere (as if any /d/ centric board has any idea of the level of fucking effort of commentary engagement worthwhile to my ears to have me grace them with eldritch porn dumps, because all they do is post the same shit-tier nightmare "waifu" threads over and over) which you know is a meaningless effort.

You could have had the fucking expanse of the far realm, now you just killed any reason for me to bother again.

>Inb4 you post hurf durf you sound elitist so we don't any of that anyway goodbye haha see that he's butthurt so I win

Right, called you out on your bullshit for an hour ban, it's late on my side so if I get banned It'll be gone by then, and to boot for extra coverage-

>Slave morality driven thralls of Chrow defending him and his choices under the impression there was a gaugable depth of depravity listed in lewd threads, especially one with D&D centric porn, a list of it's variance over East/West and a a slight post on the kind of mindset you've got to be in to fap to it from the Mind Flayers PoV

>Simple tl'dr reposts

In defense of my own retardation, that was more rooted in ideological differences when it came to the use of names, and the only reason I went anon is because Chrow made the case that the continuing ensuing arguments were shitting up the board too much.

It's the "How dare you!" tone of it all. He was posting nasty shit and the worst he got for it was some deleted posts and a 1 hour ban and he has the nerve to come and bitch at him like I've sinned against /tg/ and spit in everyone's face by not letting him get to the "tame" illithid rape porn.

This isn't /b/ or /d/, if somebody starts posting scat and the like with no good reason they're just derailing. And then furthering that by screaming and whining at the equivalent of a slap on the wrist. Maybe if it had been some mild fetish then it could have been left with a spoiler, but there's no good reason for keeping scat and guro apart from preserving one retard's feelings.


 No.311091

>>311075

Look, you post one image of scat or guro? Probably not going to matter much, so long as you spoiler it, and preferably warn folk.

But when you're talking a dump of that shit? We're not /b/ here, we really don't need huge dumps of extreme content like that.

It ain't like we're particularly vanilla, either. It's just things like scat, guro, and watersports tend to be much harder fetishes. Naturally people don't want that stuff.

That said, I think in this case, Chrow only seems to be 'tough' on it because of the guy's attitude.

ND was at least somewhat nice about things. Understanding, at the very least. Didn't act like things were a massive strike against the board, dooming us to emptiness and authoritarian mods because 'i-i was getting to the tame stuff!'

Porn threads were a mistake anyway.

Well DIRECTLY Online there are just your current online Virtual Tabletops options like D20 or Tabletop Simulator, but what I have in mind is something a bit more like Chess by mail; The "Forum" battle format.

Basically, one of us with the time, space, and materials, "Host" a game by setting one up at their home, post pictures of the setup online, then ask others to command the presented armies over the Internet.

Host does all the moving and rolling, takes pictures of the results, and post them up for the participants and any other onlookers to see at their leisure, rinse and repeat until the game is over or has to be canceled for whatever reason.

Well their adversaries are more magic based, which is odd because both sides' are supported by a magic user, but the Knights' is more archaic despite LITERALLY being a Computer Program while his evil opposite is far more modern despite spending a good deal of time as a magic BOOK.

 No.311504

So this came up in an /a/ thread:

Memetic transformation as practiced on imageboards is the missing link between the seemingly mutually exclusive post-modernist (absense of inherent value) and traditionalist (importance of value) thinking. A specific meme is an imageboards "tradition" and the memes history is its "ethos". This applies both to simple running gags like the daily dose or meta-concepts like unspoken rules.

It is important to understand the ethos behind a tradition or it appears silly or non-sensical, like to understand the meaning behind a simple flat green and purple box you need to know the ethos behind piccolo dick.

This is why rec threads are a bannable offense, this is why naruto threads were a bannable offense for the longest time etc, and are great measure to weed out the worst kind of newfags. Going against the tradition is a sign of ignorance towards the values and the history encompassed in the ethos, which is a sign of either a newfag or a shitposter, of which both are disqualified from being welcome inside the group.

This is mainly the reason normalfags smash their heads against the wall trying and failing to understand imageboard culture. They see a group of people practicing an outlook on life completely alien, quite literally incomprehensible to them, and see complete chaos where there is a well layed out structure and see contradictions where there is compromise and acceptance of duality as inherent.

Imageboard culture is both extremely fluid and extremely volatile to the point where it can shape meaning out of nothingness and dispose of it on a whim, while simultaneously based on a rigidly structured foundation of its ethos.

This is what /pol/acks commonly refer to as "meme magic" by the way.

Replace "ethos" with "mythos" up until "piccolo dick".*

Clinging to fake traditions blindly is just used as a tool to displace older culture and claim it as their own. Culture must be fluid and evolve to survive, but new members must follow traditions and be limited in number, or else they will kill the community, like what happened with /a/.

>Is tabletop ever going to be decent again or is it going to continue to devolve into casualized, narrative, hipster crap? Also, is it me or has everything just been plain shit lately?

I've been thinking about this lately and it's a really complicated problem to approach. First consider that making a decent game requires time, for design, refinement, playtesting, refinement, formatting, playtesting, refinement, editing.. etc etc. You can't take the time to design a great game if you are working a full-time job. It's also not easy to wrangle a team of people to work with you, for the same time-money reasons.

So you need to do this shit while you're young and have tons of free time… But young people are also stupid and don't have enough experience with enough systems or enough games played with enough different people or even just the higher level of abstract thinking that goes into game design that simply isn't taught anywhere. This is why so many young would-be designers end up trying to convert Pathfinder to some other setting, or they end up making a Fantasy Heartbreaker. Also, young people don't have money or connections, but we'll get back to that..

The other side of the age problem is that older gamers who might be able to put aside enough time and money to work on their game often fall into a lot of the traps you're talking about.. They're old, they don't have as much time to plan a whole campaign and their friends don't have the time to drop for weekly games.. So what do they make? Easier, less mechanically intense, OSR games, or Narrative focused games with minimal planning and prep, or they casualize the shit out of it because they intend to run the game for children. Nevermind that they played far clunkier and more complex systems when they were that age..

This isn't always the case, but if you need an explanation for the glut of shit that's dominating the hobby as a whole, well, there's all of that.

But let's say someone hits the sweetspot: They are young, they have money, they have the free time, and they have enough knowledge and insight to design a game… Well, chances are they are a hipster and they are going to make some post-modernist "deconstruction" of the genre like that "#Feminism" book of shitty non-games where you do shit like write on each other or read lines from the book.

Assuming they aren't a hipster, there's one last hurdle, and it's a pretty bad one… The Press. You're not a hipster? You care about the experience of gameplay more than social commentary? You don't hate the President? You're not virtue signalling? What mainstream site will give a fuck about your game? These places are overloaded with normalfags who love Felicia Day and think Wil Wheaton is King Nerd of Boardgame Mountain. They watch the Big Bang Theory and suck WotC and Paizo's cock non-stop. Assuming they even wanted a new system to play, you're already competing with countless other systems and games that are considered more normalfag-friendly. If you can even get to Kickstarter with your game, you're going to need to shill hard to a very small contingent, like us, who haaaaates being shilled to in the first place, even though we might love the game they are making…

The best solution I can think of involves completely breaking off from the current system of things and starting fresh, not unlike what we've done with 8chan. We'd need some kind of network of sites and trusted partners, but even that is at a serious risk of being corrupted, co-opted, or simply destroyed when some blue-haired cunt decides xhe wants to call in a favor to patreon, facebook, twitter, and every other dick xhe's ever sukced to get our presence scoured from the internet.

>>311505

>Honestly, everything with games these days reminds me of the Speculator Bubble in the 90's.

This occurred to me, at least when it comes to comics are cartoons. The kind of comics we're seeing aren't that different from the radical and edgy 90s that gave us mullet Superman with electrical powers, or the constant "Death of [BIG NAME CHARACTER]" issues. Either this shit reverts to the status quo and goes quiet for a while, or we finally see a 60+ year old industry fucking implode because hipsters and moral authoritarian busybodies insisted we needed as many black, gay, tranny, muslim replacement heroes as possible.

2012 in general imageboard culture was around the peak of the influx of redditors, whereas at least today we have 4chan as a sort of quarantine zone.

I may be off by a year or two, but for /a/ in specific, this was around when "general" threads became a thing, which ended up killing a large chunk of the creative aspect of /a/ culture. This also with things like the loli ban and SnK coming out turned /a/ into a horrible monstrosity with half "anime is serious business for serious people" and half tumblr/redditors that didn't understand imageboard culture.

After the first exodus, /a/ was great here, but incompetent moderation has slowly killed the board, dropping it from 700 IPs to 400.

I think people just got bored and just did not like going to the site be I had to use adblocker on this site due to the fucking ads. And anytime this /tg/ actually gets alot of the posts the thread is a fucking thing littered with politics. Combine the fact all out IPs got leaked it was just to much for some people and it made me think image boards are dead.

I think we lost our whole thing the minute 4/tg/ actually started to crack down on quests which I could say was one of the big reasons 8/tg/ advertised itself. I mean 4/tg/ is literally /v/ but with traditional games with Generals forcing all legit discussion into them. While Greentext,template, and threads with the sole purpose of getting people mad all that remain.

I think we are the minority we ARE the people who always want /tg/ to return to its former glory to return to the days of content creation where all the epic green text stories came from to the times when /tg/ was the only board you needed. I think that era is long gone I remember before I left 4/tg/ I saw a bunch of posts calling old /tg/ "cringy" and "autistic". Where they called writefags actual faggots for promoting their "shitty fanfiction" and attacked drawfags for "spamming autistic fetish porn". Call me autistic or a baby but I honestly think the toxic culture that has gripped 4chan and image boards as a whole needs to be fucking purged. Yeah you get some nice guys and good discussion sometimes but people shitpost because that is how they think image boards should be used.

the ones who remain on 4/tg/ actually like the board culture they dont want serious discussion or actual fun they want to shitpost and be edgy since thats what they think 4chan was. These are the people who enforced the "*insert board here* was never good" meme but that is a fucking lie that since /tg/ was godlike

You forgot something:

Who was affected?

Every 8chan user that was either a) unbanned by a board owner or volunteer or b) had all his or her posts deleted (using the [D+] function) by a board owner or volunteer. Again, the bug did not affect users that were only banned. They had to be unbanned for the raw IPs to show up. Unfortunately, this security breach affected every 8chan board with public logs. Some board owners rightly made their board logs private to protect users from having their IPs archived. After learning of the breach, the public log function was disabled and will remain disabled until I remove all the IPs from the database.

For the most part, if you just want to go to a thread, share pictures, and talk about a series you are enjoying, /a/ functions perfectly fine.. But every so often, the BO gets hypersensitive to really stupid shit and overreacts. It doesn't help that they are bad at communicating with their users on /a/ and /ameta/.

Well, if you want to get into business talk, then making a good game is about knowing your audience, yes. I don't feel like this needs to be said. People who don't like wargames aren't going to buy into a new wargame just because it's really well designed. People who are sick of zombies won't buy the best zombie board game ever made.

However, since the post that started this was

>Is tabletop ever going to be decent again or is it going to continue to devolve into casualized, narrative, hipster crap?

Clearly, the intent is to make more good games that aren't casualized hipster shit, with the issues I raised being that you need time, money, and the right mindset, which exist in a sort of 3-way-pick-2 relationship.

Regardless of what kind of game is being made, there's a parallel element of knowing the market and having the means to get your game out there so the people who didn't know they wanted your game learn it exists.. Because otherwise, they'll keep sucking at the dick of the biggest companies with the biggest presence on the marketplace.

Best example I can think of is Fantasy Craft, which does everything that people think Pathfinder does: it fixes D&D 3.5 in a big way and introduces new content, interesting mechanics, and rulesets that alleviate many of the problems that others have been trying to houserule and homebrew for decades…. But people won't give up Pathfinder or even D&D because of brand loyalty, or because it's the only game that other people play, or because it's the only system being sold in major bookstores.. The reasons go on and put us in a position where the other half of the battle is getting people to slay their sacred cows.

PFRPG looks like old books, there are colorful images every other page.

And we're living in an era where design and looks matter very much.

You're essentially arguing that a game can be considered good because an individual thinks it is. And while it is true that people can enjoy things regardless of what others think, that does not mean they are well made. You can think FATAL is the greatest system ever, but that doesn't make it a well designed game with well-designed mechanics and rules. You can enjoy huffing paint, but that doesn't mean it's good for you.

>>311849

Now you're getting down to taste in art, in which case I'll agree that presentation matters.. I'll also argue that PF's art is heinously ugly and overdesigned to the point of being near self-parody (every fucking character is covered in belts and dangling shit)

FC's art was meant to evoke the classic ink illustrations of classic RPGs, which it does quite well. It's also full of dynamism and adventurous scenes that are reflected in the actual rules.

In either case, saying PF is better because it has more art and more color, versus FC being bad because the art is black and white and you think there's not as much of it (there's about as much as there is in any RPG book) is an entirely superficial judgement and has no bearing on whether or not a game is casualized, narrative, hipster crap.

My largest issue with the tabletop industry as it stands right now is actually that it refuses to evolve into something that deserves to be taken seriously and has been coopted specifically because of that refusal. It has, since olden days, been very sloppy work that had little to no editing done beyond playtesting and even then the largest companies such as WoTC let things slip by that any idiot could've caught (see 4E Bloody Path) so they don't REALLY invest much in playtesting or testing in general. What this means is that, from the top down, players expect developers to give them poorly tested, poorly edited, poorly structured, horse shit rulesets and then to eat that shit with a smile. Shadowrun 5E is such a poorly structured mess of excessive rules where they don't matter and not enough rules where they do matter and yet people play it, constantly, and buy the physical books…because they don't demand better. Shadowrun is one of the big names no less and they didn't think it was worthwhile to put something out that was technically proficient.

So when you have an industry where it is acceptable to just say "Yeah this game is pretty hard to understand and the rules are scattered everywhere but still you should buy Geist." then this just plays a siren song at a fucking Doctor Who convention for 'geeks' to come in and coopt it. They came from video games when it was at the lowest point of effort for product and they have come for tabletop gaming in the same time frame, the barrier to entry and the expectation of quality have been lurking in the god damn depths for a decade now. Big companies don't feel the need to put work into making things better which tells homebrewers and indies that they don't need to which tells players that this is acceptable. Even worse, players will often just release homebrew comprehensive fixes for a system that make it fucking legible like the Shadowrun 5E Superbook which is a great blazing beacon of "If you don't do your job, we will." There is ZERO incentive for someone to publish a good, solid, polished product and instead we get Anima or Dread; two violently opposed extremes of low effort.

So free time isn't an issue, its the fact that players who want to try to develop things are brought up in a culture that teaches them to forgive a games flaws so they make shitty games and on the other end of the spectrum the parasites don't care to begin with and will make shittier, more appealing, games. You can't compete with them on that playing field even if you had all the free time in the world, they have a completely different goalpost to reach and it is set way closer to them then it is possible for you to set yours. The more mechanically complex or competent the system is? The more time it takes for less reward and the parasites can do it better because the bar for quality is so low. If the bar were higher? You could spend time on a good, tested, functional game and get something out of it but that is not the case so don't bother.

To summarize. players will accept any shlock that you give them and if its bad enough they will fix it themselves, almost regardless of how badly you fuck it up, so people who care about the hobby are at a disadvantage because they care and also don't know how to actually do better to appeal to non-gamers. Meanwhile parasites know how to appeal to non-gamers and do not give a shit about quality, someone who cares will fix it for free, so they abuse that to get the money out of the industry.

If you sit down and make a good game with a functional ruleset and hire a decent editor, decent graphic design artist, work with a good artist to bring it all together, go through years of playtesting, and then try to Kickstarter it to get back what you spent? You can't.

>Everything is subjective!

It isn't, but I think we've clearly reached an impasse. People play shit games for dumb reasons and ignore good games for even dumber reasons.

Presentation matters, but the actual gameplay, the mechanics, the rules, the actual act of sitting down at a table with people and engaging in a group session of make-believe is something that is unarguably impacted by the quality and design of the game itself… But it sounds like all you've ever played is Pathfinder, so how can I expect you to understand how much of a difference a good system makes?

>>311865

What's most interesting about pen and paper games is that a mediocre game can be made decent or even good by a good group, and mysteriously, that /same group/ can have a terrible time with a game that is objectively better designed. Probably, given time, the things that cause that terrible time would be fixed, but likely it only takes one or even two bad sessions for a group to go "Yeah, nah, let's go back to what we like because we know it's fun and we know how to have fun with it".

I remember there was this spate of time where my group was trying like hell to transition out of 3.5 DnD, and we managed to play like 6 different systems in the space of two months before settling on GURPS. Honestly, before you can get into a discussion of good and bad games, one should probably talk about what IS good and bad design.

>what is good and bad design

A very complicated subject that has, as far as I know, no written rules and no published books that can teach you how to do it. Everyone in the industry has an idea of what they are doing but it is not codified or named, the only think MaRo has done good for card gaming is to give terms names so that they can be collected, written, and understood which is a step that tabletop gaming has not taken yet. There ARE numbers and ratios and relationships between how rules interact but it is very difficult to explain when there are no terms to express those concepts, as far as I know, at the time of writing. Believe it or not the word "mechanics" is actually pretty new, it used to be "crunch" which meant just numbers and now the term "mechanics" means the way the systems play with each other so with that word being spun into existence it can now be discussed. Prior to that you could not sit down at a table and get very far in discussing a game's "crunch" because the word didn't mean how everything interacted specifically so you would end up talking past people who were somewhere else in that field of meaning.

A lot of designers are making up words for things recently, its been a push since 2015 but not a lot of them have caught on yet so it may be a while until we have like a codified system of game design. Video games are getting there too now that people are interesting in studying it and giving it words, we will probably follow after them so maybe like…2024? I would shoot for 2024 for our first published 'this is how you make games dumbass' book. Thats my speculation and impression though and that book will for sure be about board games which are the bigger money maker right now.

Right now the only way I could explain good and bad mechanics is to compare things and be wordy about it. For example, a good rule of thumb is that a player should always be rolling dice or making a decision to keep them engaged but there are times when you want less rolls because too many rolls becomes cumbersome but the exact, quantified, number of rolls per encounter before it becomes a bad game design isn't really known. We just kind of look at it and say "Thats too many rolls."

>>311870

>everything is subjective

Art is subjective, to an extent (because your appreciation of it and whether or not its art is 900% personal conjecture and anyone who gives a shit enough to argue about it is retarded.) Most other things have room for subjectivity but are not largely composed of it, there are hard rules for things like how people interact with one another or what price points can sell products or you know…chemical reactions which are absolutely not subjective. You really just remind me of the problem party I just got done mentioning >>311862 who will forgive faults just on a whim and lower the bar for quality all around.

Totally agreed.

I used to run Quests (boo hiss) but let me tell you: Building a system out of fucking nothing is hard as balls even if you have some basis to work on. LIke, what sort of game is suited for roll-under d100 mechanics as opposed to dice-pool number-of-success skill systems? How often should a group be rolling for something? What's the variance between a shitty roll, a decent roll, and a good roll in terms of result in play? all sorts of questions you need to be able to answer and to which no good answers exist. Game design on pen and paper is /hard as fucking shit/, is what I'm saying, and the terrible, seductive thing is that it seems super fucking easy.

It's only a 3 day ban, just to keep the weekend peaceful. We'll see what he does when or if he comes back. There's a couple other posters I'm keeping an eye on as well. There's been a spike in faggotry lately, mostly with IPs that have all started posting in the past couple days at the earliest.

Needless to say, I don't support people starting shit and repeatedly declaring that everyone they don't like is a redditor or a samefag. The purity spiraling doesn't jive with me either. No need to become a cancer worse than the cancer you're allegedly trying to keep out, after all. That's like setting the place on fire so no one can ruin it.

Either way, I'm always around, so I'll be keeping an eye on things.

That feel. I know it far too well.

Anyway, thanks a million for staying awesome.

You may as well be throwing a temper tantrum over the fact that you can be banned or have your posts deleted at all. Which is extra funny considering that the only people who ever get banned or punished on /tg/ are faggots who do nothing but shitpost, derail threads, and create an obvious breadcrumb trail by picking up an obnoxious gimmick.

I think it's a combination of the ranking system being shit and several boards being artificially inflated… Like /leftypol/ is apparently made up of lots of bots and shitposting, and /newsplus/ (which shouldn't even be considered a normal board) is considered more active than other boards because there are new threads constantly being made because the damned thing is like an RSS feed. /tv/ is mostly shitposting, /waifuist/ can't even be considered a porn board..

My personal belief is it's three things: The first, like you said, the mods assuming things are shills. The second, also like you said, are instances of actual shills. There's a surprisingly large amount of them if you know where to look.

Then the third's those with opinions they disagree with that result in threads sagebombed or shillbombed or what have you, which results in mods usually banning OP because 'muh spam thread' or some such nonsense.

/pol/'s situation I feel is where about 95% of mod action is pure paranoia and fostering of paranoia, and the remaining 5% is managing to get legitimate problems entirely by accident on account of the broad strokes. i.e., shills- back during the elections these were guys that would take absolutely any critical stance against Trump or any stance against Hillary lighter than seething hatred as the surefire mark of a shill, and to this day there's people there that claim even somebody playing devil's advocate is a shill who should be banned. It's hard to prove a negative but it's hard to prove a positive on that kind of stuff, so /pol/ as a collective stops listening around "prove a negative" and keeps the witch-hunt going.

People around these parts waste their freedom. The total creative, original output of good stuff of /tg/ equals no more than one tenth-one twelfth of some niche SJW, PC infested, heavily censored forum.

But look what happens the moment somebody calls their bluff. Comments flow, people come back to life, defense, explanations, threats, attacks, hysteria, "halp, halp!". It's like "I have next to nothing to defend, but I'm gonna act like asparagus the moment someone threatens what little I have and I'm gonna sacrifice way much more energy doing it rather than delivering good stuff".

I say fuck him, /tg/ does do quality stuff in fits and bursts and who is he to dictate what is and is not quality. What if I LIKE the Kobold Slave thread? What if I enjoy the worldbuilding thread or greentext thread? What are we supposed to do in his utopian board, discuss GURPS all day and try and distill an even more catchall game medium that no one will ever play? I say fuck him and boost the ban, but even then I feel he'll come back because going from those messages, and if the poster above me really is him and not someone playing devils advo', he's just a sanctimonious prick and will probably never cool his jets and be like this until he's forcefully ejected, because I'm sure he'll never get what his 'idea' /tg/ is and even if he starts to see improvement by his own bizarre standards it'll never be enough and he'll just keep needling and needling so he can keep that smug sense of OH YOU CAN BE SO MUCH BETTER IF YOU JUST DO THIS, DISAGREE?

There's already a crystal clear example of the kind of pseudo-intelligent comments you bring to a conversation in this thread: You're a fucking idiot with a chip on his shoulder who thinks he's being some kind of epic master debater.

I'd agree with others, adding a simple "0" to the lot would be the best way to go. He's certainly annoying, but I've seen worse. But, usually those guys get banned too.

This seems to be part of a larger problem we've been getting a lot of, though, lately.

People keep coming in with this idea of being some kind of savior, or purifier, as of late. They get this idea that they've got to fend off the foreign hoards and preserve our board culture, when those "foreign hoards" are the natives, these guys tend to be new, and they go directly against what has been the standard board culture here for ages.

Well, yeah, it's worth noting that you can't please everyone all of the time because of personal tastes, but to argue and stress the point at length and to try and diminish the points of others because they refuse to speak from an ultra-subjective, non-generalist, vague point of view as dictated by some fuckwit who has nothing to add to a conversation… I don't know if that's bait, but it's fucking retarded enough to be worthy of the title.

Likewise for whining about the quality of /tg/ because you don't believe some greentext, even though /tg/ has a legacy of taking the dumbest, most obvious trolling and turning it into something better than the OP intended. Fake greentext is also one of those legacies, and we've always been fine with it, as long as it's entertaining.

But regardless of the specifics of Timestamp's bullshit, the real crime here is that this guy does nothing but shitpost, derail threads, and start arguments, and then he has the nerve to tell us that we're letting /tg/ down by not having the best possible conversations at all times. Fuck that hypocritical bullshit.

Your vision of /tg/ is too idealized. There's little willingness to assume one's good faith - all it takes is to mention a certain system or mechanics to make people flip over even though the argument is solid and the style acceptable even by less forgiving places.

Instead, there's a general weakness: people's inability to enjoy the best thing chan-based portals have to offer.

I think this is a problem with a lot of things in the modern era actually. We're at a point in our development where we think we can push towards our "ideal". in fact we condition our children to push towards whatever they think is ideal and they don't really care or concern themselves with what is realistic or possible within current guidelines.

You don't talk about RPGs, though. You only whine about Timestamps and proof and get into circular arguments. You don't /tg/ or yourself any favors by purposefully trying to annoy as many people as possible to prove that people think you're a smug cunt with an undeserved sense of importance and value when all you contribute is elaborately constructed shitposts.

Dogbolds, an annoying opposite of Tucker's Kobolds. That annoying enemy type that breaks the flow of a dungeon. That aggravating random encounter one step away from the exit. Easily ran from or ignored, but always present. Engaging gives no XP, but merely wastes time.

From time to time the floating dungeon that is spacehulk Tigæ gets these unwanted kobold wannabes, sitting at tables and demanding sauce, bickering and heckling at the bards in their practice, and waving their broken daggers at the king crow.

Take a few steps back, look at what's happening and ask yourself whether there's really the need for such an overreaction.

tbh, I'm surprised by it - any GM worth his salt should be able to quickly assess the situation and quickly find an answer clever enough to defuse potential conflict.

Screaming "ban, ban, omigod, ban him!" is an indication of very little social skills. Certainly not enough for a successful session featuring plot more complicated than "after you slew 4786587435 wave of goblins, it's time for another one".


 No.313903

No, the ban situation is because when anyone calls you out on what you doing for being a huge hypocrite that doesn't listen to what anyone is saying. Like you think that ND was revealing themself over trying to get attention when it was really 'I'm an annoying prick that everyone on the board dislikes and even I find you annoying.'

You are not only can't take the final word but you can't even understand what the board is telling you. Like that timestamp over the character sheet in order to prove it happened when the guy left before the character was even made. Even if the character sheet existed how would the person even be able to prove that that sheet was the one where they were going to be forced to random a sexuality. There is no way to prove any of that. Sometimes you just got to make believe it was real or take the guy for his word not instantly declare it false. Like I had my bag with all my DnD stuff stolen out of my car. If I was to tell you about this huge long story about how I was in a campaign with a DM who had 2 girlfriends who knew he had 2 girlfriends but was really using one because she was disabled and he was getting autism bucks off being her caretaker while using the campaign to be his real girlfriend's fanfic. My character was orginally a guy who turned into a little girl who was being forced into incest situations because it was in the blood I inherited. I eventually got screwed out everything nice I got in the campaign and got so mad but internalized it so much that I was throwing up when I met to play with them. I got no way to prove it so you will call that whole story false.

Anon, there are like 5-6 people interacting with me, mostly in a very hysterical tone.

We're not living in 90s anymore. A few bad comments are no indication of the idea being wrong.

> There is no way to prove any of that.

You can back up any story with enough arguments that it make it sufficiently plausible. A word or two about a system, a setting, an adventure (if it's an official one), a photo of a charsheet, a link to a page when it's relevant and so on and so forth.

When you have nothing to support your story other than your own words, when there seems to be something fishy about it and when you react like a virgin buttraped in a dark alley, well then, the story goes to the little box with "totally fake content" stamps all over it.

And it's ok, nothing bad about it as long as the story features some quality.

When it's so fake that it hurts, and when there's nothing really good about it, the author should be scolded, taught that he should try harder rather than be applauded because he is "beautiful as he is and so are his stories".

In the end, no content is better than shit content.

> You are kicking the hornet's nest and then surprised when the hornets start attacking you.

I'm not surprised about the attack itself, but about what I see behind it - the hysterical need for the illusion to continue to exist, for a story to be accepted.

See this is you projecting what you want into it. No one is hysterical over it they are just calling you out for being a jerk for no other reason than believing you are some sanctimonious savior of the board.

Also does it matter that it is fake? Guy was trying to interject something onto the board. Even if it was fake or the guy just didn't want to respond to you, he started a thread which had a chance of having some good stories in it. You though had to go out of the way to derail it over calling the validity of the story into question and then hunker down when people mocked you over doing so.

The 'hysteria' wasn't over wanting it to exist but so much as your fervent need to call all stories into question.

Also it is everyone in this thread versus you so far. I haven't seen anyone come out in your support over this and you dragging it out like this makes anyone who reads this not garner any sympathy for you.

As you said yourself, this is anonymous board so what is even the point of defending yourself?

Also the reason people aren't taking a liking to you is because of the whole way you seem to belittle everyone. I was perfectly neutral when this whole thing started but reading all you wrote it was obvious you are just being an ingrate. It doesn't even matter how right you are about what you are doing, no one here wants you to do it. You are being a self declared gatekeeper, as other people have said, trying to block or stop anything you deem as not fitting what you deem to be quality.

Also what you talk of is so many circles I think I was talking with someone on tumblr. You act like this isn't important but then feel that it is so important you been constantly doing a one man war against everyone. You threatened the board owner and belittled everyone who brought up any grievance. People were willing to give you a chance but then you decided to jump in and smash any good faith they had in regards to you to ribbons.

I Why should the guy be scolded? Does it really serve any purpose? You can just say it is fake and that will be that. I've seen it many times where people call a story fake and gay. And generally if the guy who told the story spergs out then everyone has a good fun times poking at him. You instead though sperged out and everyone had fun with you until you became too obscene to deal with and got Chrow involved.

Also age doesn't equate to superiority. All it means is you are more likely to die before we will. I also doubt I'm that much younger than you if at all.

Because, if treated in half-serious way, it's fun process. Also an exercise in a few different aspects of social life. In addition, people seem to be incapable of staying on topic and instead make it about the author instead of his topic.

Still, if one doesn't feel like engaging in self defense - he is free to leave it as it is and go away without ever going back to the thread.

> belittle everyone

Only those who try as hard as possible to act like spoiled brats with little creativity. It's "social" physics: an action begets a reaction and you're treated like you deserve to.

I have little faith in anyone responding with low-tier insults the moment his precious created is criticized. Assuming he is merely a child with underdeveloped social skills is the best I can do in such a case.

> Also what you talk of is so many circles

Hardly. Things aren't B&W and tend to have many different layers - to the point that they might seem to be self-contradictory while they are not. for example: it's entirely possible to be a religious guy who think a religion has no place in politics, a pizza-lover who recognizes it as potentially dangerous diet and a fan of some game who sees its many problems be it fluff- or crunch-wise.

> one-man war

There's none in literal sense. There has been produced like, I'm not sure, 30-40 comments that addressed me? It's not much really, just enough to call it "a boring Wednesday".

> You threatened (…)

You're overreacting.

Unless you really think the palce and the… community is so fragile it might be destroyed by a single guy who asks questions and discusses stuff in a calm way.

> chance

Nah. Pretty much everyone cried "ban".

> Why should the guy be scolded?

Because it's natural part of becoming "better" at anything. Without the feedback, you won't realize you're making mistakes and won't know how to make them better.

Because most don't fucking CARE!

If it's a good story, it's a good story, doesn't matter if it was ever true so long as we got some entertainment out of it.

Hell, my father use to explain that he got the scar along his nose from fighting a bear that attacked while he was trying to fix his car; The bear swiped his face before he grabbed the Car Battery with one hand and the Bear's nipple with the other, giving the poor beast enough of a shock to scare it off.

It wasn't until years later that I realized that this would have been fucking impossible, as the amount electric current coursing through his chest would have stopped his heart, but the true that he drunkenly ran face first into a barbed wire fence on a snowmobile and nearly tore his face off isn't nearly as entertaining a yarn.

You are basically the Son from the movie Big Fish; You keep pestering your Father (the story anons) for validity or the truth to their claims, failing to realize that wasn't the point of his stories to begin with!

Even if it was fake or the guy just didn't want to respond to you, he started a thread which had a chance of having some good stories in it. You though had to go out of the way to derail it over calling the validity of the story into question and then hunker down when people mocked you over doing so.

>The 'hysteria' wasn't over wanting it to exist but so much as your fervent need to call all stories into question.

Exactly, YOU ARE THE SON!

Go and watch Big Fish, DO IT NOW!!!

I think Timestamp anon has been given more than enough rope to hang himself with. When push comes to shove, it's always back to insulting everyone else and talking about how we can be so much better because of the freedoms afforded to us on 8chan, but never does he actually address why he won't just go talk about things he likes or make better threads.

Seeing as his IP has switched a dozen times since this topic was started, if he pulls this shit again, it's ban on sight.

Not directly relaed to /tg/, but still worth noting:

/sp/ showed /intb/ its free speech.

It feels very much like all those other people we had issues with (ND, Virt). You give them the initial ban then they show up (while ban evading) acting like how they are so right when everyone else doesn't care if they are right or not but the fact they are being annoying pricks. I think that is the biggest thing is that these people seem to have some superiority complex where they are right and it doesn't matter how many people say they are wrong, they will keep at it telling everyone what they are doing is wrong and it is just everyone else who is the problem not them.

>Well, obviously you care because you reacted so I'm right

Fucking hell, mate.

This is why people want to get rid of you.

You're a disingenuous prick.

I have to chime in on this since I just got yet another "Ban Evasion" ban on 4chan…

I was NEVER ban evading.

While I know it's certainly doable, I usually like to respect the legitimacy of an authority.

This is why Chrow is fucking awesome and the Anonymous shit-dicks on 4chan are shit-dicks:

Chrow actually COMMUNICATED with me, with my repeated reappearances being when he lifted a ban early because we had come to some kind of an agreement.

Shit-dick 4chan mods?

Fuckers banned me from the only means of actually contacting them (the IRC channel), and continue to ignore my explanation that I didn't PURPOSEFULLY dodge their original (and REALLY WEAK) Permaban, but that my ISP had done infrastructure work that had shuffled my IP address several times last summer.

Now as for the superiority complex and being "preachy," that's due to the whole deal involving an issue I and many other feel very strongly about: The use of identification on an Image board.

While I understand and can respect the idea of the "Anonymous Meritocracy," that is to say that a post should be judged solely on its content alone in a vacuum, it's a philosophy that I just personally don't adhere to.

While an identity does bring with it biases, I'm just someone who can't seem to not identify themselves (seriously, there was a guy who could tell "Real" Nice Daemonette post from the fakes via his boners)…

That said, Chrow made it very clear that my continual usage of a name on this board was causing far too much disruption to be allowed to continue, and since Chrow has proven himself a respectable figure of authority, I've complied.

Timestamp does have something of a valid point, that sometimes it is good to call bullshit on things, but like many of us he's clung to this belief to the point of zealotry and it's making him far too disruptive.
