Fictional worldbuilding without any reference to reality in one way or another is... well, ungrounded. It makes discussing the politics of a fictional setting utterly impossible.

What Veeky Forums needs isn't MORE gutting of content. If we go down that path we'll only be left with a slow moving /pfg/ and /5eg/ because the rest has been banished/moved to separate boards. Until generals are banned of course.

Seriously, if /pol/ dropping the occassional redpill hurts your sphincter so much you can go to GiantITP forums and virtue signal all you want there.

Discussing fictional politics
You can't discuss fictional politics without bringing up real world history and as a result real politics.

The idea is to create a sense of importance and urgency, to prioritize politics-spam as a threat to the board's health. That can get it weeded out more efficiently.

This is why we have moderation in the first place: The worst offenses need to be removed quickly to minimize the detrimental impact they have on our experience. If we have real-world politics flaming here every day, that's energy we're spending on unnecessary acidity and hatefulness instead of traditional games discussion.

I unintentionally derailed a filename thread by making a brief tangent to something related to social issues. I tried steering it back but it got out of control and I was half-assed in my attempts. Nobody was posting images and instead it was a mess. I'm surprised nothing happened to me or the thread. I wouldn't even mind getting banned for it at the time, though it's probably too late to punish me now.
By the least give out warnings next time in case I do this again because I'm trying to cut politics (cancer) out of my life. The environment of current events is already a quagmire.

to prioritize politics-spam as a threat to the board's health
The problem is only half of it gets deleted. You can go to archive and find deleted political posts. Know what they have in common? Most of them don't belong to mainstream American politics. I don't say it means they are good but the other half of the shitstorm which usually derails threads in the first place doesn't get touched at all. You can ask for stricter priorities on politics-spam as much as you want, as long as one side gets special treatment and gets spared from punishment this spam won't go anywhere. All shitposts are equal but some are more equal than others.

Ignoring bait would be enough, but it's a user problem that extra moderation won't solve. /pol/ vs anti/pol/ slapfights happen because instead of ignoring and reporting when someone posts really fucking obvious bait like WE for some reason people will sperg out and create the attention loop the baiting poster wanted.

While I agree with the ideals of laissez faire moderation, that only works when there's a sense of community and enough agreement between participants to get rid of undesirables. That's how Veeky Forums has always worked, but now it can't, because there's too many undesirables to realistically coordinate the good eggs.

Now, if you're literally arguing for no social moderation at all, you don't know where you are. This is Veeky Forums, where anonymity makes it so social experiments are the norm. It's not a free-for-all. Everything in it socializes you to behave a certain way. That's why newfags get shit on.

This is pretty much entirely because there's nobody making OC outside the dedicated art threads anymore. All the artists who would spontaneously commemorate a good story or funny rules observation with fanart left for different places years back, and all the new artists already have their own spaces on the internet they stick to.

There's a lack of the spontaneous drive to create that drove the more memorable discussions back then. All the art is cloistered in exactly two threads (Drawfag and Towergirls), all the writing is contained to exactly three threads (The Jumpchain COYA, "That Guy" threads that basically function as generals, and the Worldbuilding thread). Outside of a few dedicated projects with dedicated generals the OC creators never leave, there's no more drive to add onto other people's ideas, expand on their mythologies, or solidify them as part of the board. Nothing organically grows as part of the board's culture any more, in the same way a character like Noh did.

I don't think there's really a way to fix it anymore. I don't think the board is dead, or unusable, but the way the board is formatted and creative projects work these days is antithetical to the sort of open, collaborative, spontanious drive we used to have, and I honestly don't have think we even have the population to do it again these days.

Castle Crashers campaign using E6 rules

That's ontopic.

"we hate D&D" thread

That's a different form of shitposting, and not really relevant to what we're discussing.

The issue with offtopic shitposting is that traditional games are very much a niche hobby. We're kind of outnumbered here if people decided to routinely spam offtopic threads here.

There's a lot of things I liked more about old Veeky Forums. The drawfags not being cloistered together in the drawthread, writefags being encouraged to write things that were often only tangentially related to traditional games, and generally more love towards OC.

But, to say "Old Veeky Forums was better because of all the offtopic shitposting, machine spam, board raids, and twenty daily troll threads" is kind of ridiculous. As much as I dislike the current daily troll threads we have now, there's at least the benefit that there's fewer of them.

I personally don't believe in a "Zero Tolerance" policy. The occasional offtopic thread is alright, and it only becomes an issue if people try to routinely make the same offtopic thread or even to try and create an offtopic general or pseudo-general.

All that needs to happen is slightly stricter moderation. Keep /pol/, but make sure that they are contained. They don't have to be contained as hard as /mlp/, but there should be more enforcement on blatant /pol/bait.

People being too anal about things being on-topic has stagnated every single board that follows this philosophy, especially when one of the oldest tenets of Veeky Forums is the fact that if you want to talk about something, you talk about anywhere BUT the board that's most related to the topic.

Only real improvement I'd like to see is maybe a mod learn to spot some /v/ or /pol/ spill over with the whole "sjw's are taking over!" shit. They are made to shit post and you know it. Unless its some major reveal like "Emp is retconned to be female" or somthing, then purge it.

I like lewd stuff. Some of the better threads in the past were just short silly lewd jokes. But, the problem with the Lewd Generals and the ERP/WST/Magical Realm crew is that they don't know how to treat lewd things with moderation or as a joke, and they would figure out how to push things well past the cringe-point and still keep going until any humor was dead and gone.

Lewd never really left Veeky Forums, it's just that you can't make a lewd post anymore without attracting the worst kind of people to it.

Because looking at the catalog, the amount of threads that have over 150 posts can be counted on one hand, anything that isn't D&D, MtG, WH40k sinks to the bottom of the catalog, and we've been having the same "we hate D&D" thread for the past few months, that have consistently reached bump limit more often than not.

I mean, even /v/ can scrounge up more discussions in an afternoon than we do in a week.

This. Being a "content creator" always seemed like an excuse to make a name for yourself on an anonymous image board, so I don't miss them.

It may not be a popular opinion, but in nine years here I've found that as soon as a "writefag" or a "drawfag" gains any degree of notoriety they immediately spawn a shitty cult of personality, and something like that goes against the spirit of the board in the same way a tripcode does. I get that everyone misses the funny meme artists who would draw comics for the monthly funny meme character we'd all come up with, but artists and writers have always been the most attention whoring part of any board's "board culture." The only reason we miss ours so much is because we let them become such a central part of board culture before they got kicked out.

People will tell you all about how the nazimod ran out our precious artist, but they forget to mention where you can find those exact same people these days: tgchan. Tumblr. Furaffinity. Look at those places and decide for yourself if we need that back here.

Decide if you really want another "/tg/ Unified Setting" train wreck, another "Love Can Bloom," or more Sergals.

Hell, look at what the content creators that still float around here make: do we actually want more "Towergirls?" another "Disney Villains Victorious?" More fucking Cestree comics?

"Content creators" suck.

Hello. I'm a content creator.

I've written dozens of stories for Veeky Forums. All anonymously. And, a fair amount of them have gotten screencapped, plussed into the hundreds on suptg, and some have even found their way onto Reddit where they've been upvoted to the top of the game stories subreddits. A precious few of my stories are considered Veeky Forums classics, and continue to be reposted even though some of them were written close to a decade ago.

And, frankly, what upsets me is that in part I agree with you. I think people should write and make stuff anonymously on Veeky Forums, because it prevents a cult following, and makes people judge each work for itself, rather than its creator.

But, what makes me disagree with you is that aside from being a writer, I'm also an artist. Not a good one, but I did try to draw for Veeky Forums.

And you hate me for it. What the fuck.

I didn't sign my work, but I can't exactly change my style. And, when you draw enough, people will inevitably give you a name, even if you never adopt one yourself. And, perhaps irrationally, people start to hate you the more they see you, the more they recognize you, because that's part of some people's nature.

You made me want to stop drawing for Veeky Forums.

Perhaps not you, but your mindset. Not just yours though, but one shared by many people, myself included. My instinctual mindset, the mindset that I would have fallen into forever if I hadn't been on the other side of it. The mindset that makes you hate people who try to stick out from the crowd, to hammer any nail taller than the rest.

Drawing isn't easy. It requires inspiration, and Veeky Forums was an inspiration. But the huge amount of negativity towards any content creators really wasn't apparent to me until my art allowed people a chance to focus their negativity somewhere. I'm certain that if I wrote all my stories with a name, people would only remember the worst of my stories and hate me for them, rather than reposting the good ones.

Yes, Big E used his perfect DNA to make them but he engineered new organs which his body didn't have. He could've created girls (he has one X chromosome anyway, he only needed to duplicate it) or boys if he wanted.

If you want to talk about something, NEVER talk about it on the thread that actually relates to whatever you're talking about.

Remember kiddies: anyone who disagrees with the above is a newfag (probably from reddit).

Did the board change or are we just getting older and more embittered?

Everyone who made the board great ended up leaving because the mods were literally "NO FUN ALLOWED" and now there's a vacuum that shitposters and generals have taken up since quest threads got lumped into the gulag known as /qst/.

And what, the 3aboos making endless martial vs. caster threads every other day aren't? I don't see people asking for /d&d/ or anything.

Smut isn't necessarily bad.
Smutfags, on the other hand, are cringe-factories of the saddest order.

Frankly I can't tell anymore who is making these threads. 3aboos? 3.PF haters? Both of them in delirious coupling? None and these threads are made by industrious trolls and salt mining companies?

These, basically. It's one thing to not like a system, but another thing to shitpost daily so people can see how butthurt you are.

Because you're dividing the fanbase
No you're not. You're telling people to use the right board for its intended purpose. If the while fanbase is discussing the vidya on the Vidya, then there's no splitting beyond topics which - and stick with me here - IS HOW Veeky Forums BOARDS WORK. You can browse two different board's, you know.

Christ, it's like explaining platforming mechanics to Dean Takahashi

And what if they're not? What if instead they're circlejerking about the plot of Tetris or their favorite Tetris character or making threads asking people to stat the L-shape block so they can do more of the former? What does that garbage add to Veeky Forums

I don't know what's worse, the fact that you're a /v/irgin or the fact that you're this ignorant of how Veeky Forums actually works.

You can backpedal all you want but you can't hide your ignorance of board culture.

And why would you need to convert a game that already exists? Why would said pointless conversion that already exists warrant its own thread instead of just going in the Board Games General? Why do you have to rely on ad hominems since your arguments have no legs to stand on.

@Gigastrength
Then enlighten me, faggot. If I'm so wrong why does the Shadowrun general on Veeky Forums and /vg/ both exist without somehow consuming each other? Why aren't you in there trying to force them to discuss everything on Veeky Forums since apparently this is the One True Board of Shadowrun discussion?

Who says anyone NEEDS to do anything? People might WANT to discuss how else to turn Tetris into a tabletop game and as far as I can tell, it'd be on topic.
Why would said pointless conversion that already exists warrant its own thread instead of just going in the Board Games General?
Because what YOU personally feel is irrelevant to the board has nothing to do with whether or not the thread itself is violating the rules.

Also, nice goalpost moving, guess you can't read so you switch gears to deflect from your own incompetence.

Because the people who post in the generals are, on average, much chiller individuals than the faggots who feel the need to slot every single discussion on Veeky Forums into predefined parameters that nobody besides them ultimately care about.

I mean if you talk about the video game in the tabletop general, and vice-versa, nobody will give a shit because you're still talking about the setting and nobody gives a fuck about fulfilling some distinction between the fandoms.

Most custom systems on Veeky Forums exist because some dude decided to convert his favorite game/movie/comic/etc. into a tabletop game, not that I'd expect you to know that considering how ignorant you are on board culture as a whole.

So what you're saying is that people tend to talk about the videogame on the videogames board and about the tabletop game on the tabletop game board with precious few exceptions?

Glad we had this chat.

I'm saying that literally nobody besides you and the rest of the fun police cares about shit staying on topic when off topic shit has been a thing since Veeky Forums was made.

But you're right, I'm glad we had this chat too, if only because it tells me that Veeky Forums as a whole was much better off back when people thought that it was only for social rejects.
