We have this thread every fucking day with the same newfags asking how 4chan died. 4chan was never good. We still have the same bitter personalities and random maymays as 15 years ago, except now its ironic. Fuck off.
If this kind of thread is being made every day, day in and day out, with people growing more and more angry at the issue at hand without failure, then wouldn’t you figure maybe there’s a real problem?

But these little things can keep us amused while larger plots percolate.
It's the late stage of all cultures that they just resort to making something popular easier to do until the contributors jump ship to other ventures and the bubble bursts.

We're in the late stage bubble of 4chan culture where prominent users are being redirected to better run sites. The bubble will be popping soon leading to an image-board cultural recession,

>multiple people complaining about the anime spammer
For how much longer are you going to operate under the false premise that the complainers are the problem?
I gave a half-assed apology to the port men I bumped shoulders with just now and forced my way through, keeping Kuro hidden behind me. The albino girl, with her milky white hair and skin, and with eyes the color of frozen blood, could be easily made out even in the dark, so before Kuro found herself in the twisted gaze of the port men hiding their movements and became victim to some sort of sadistic festival of twisted abuse, I forcefully pulled us away, complaining that Saku had forced the whole thing on me the whole time. That was after we followed from Chindon, on the outskirts of town. Kuro looked like she might be taken in by the cries of the circus barkers, wandering like she might get lost at any moment, but Saku, not to be outdone, was taken in by a curvy beauty and convinced us to drop in somewhere along the way in the spirit of adventure. There was a woman who looked like she could make a living off her tits and ass might have been someone's local mistress, and we killed some time there before a someone with broken tattoos on her little finger seemed like she might strangle us with her bare hands and we embarrassed shuffled to safety. It's not even funny how how much trouble Kuro was.

I can't really endorse this translation due to both the flaws of my own Japanese skills and the fact that I don't have any of the context in it whatsoever.

>And you're a real hypocrite to say this when you have continuously argued, including just a few posts ago, that there is only one "anime guy" on /news/.
I never argued this.
The mods aren't on your side. You can't win this.

The /qa/ md5 megalist has been updated again. I screwed up my browser switching thing so I had to resort the list again so it's another "all or nothing" thing, unfortunately. This might be the last update for a while (or possibly ever), but the reason for that is up will be revealed in time

If you're new to /qa/, this is a list of md5 image filters to place into 4chan X to automatically hide posts or threads that contain said images. This is a list centered around shitpost avatars such as frogs, feelman (all variants), andy sixx, goldface, mutts and facebook thinking faces. I don't have any plans to separate the list into categories as it started as a personal thing as the odds of missing a good post with this filter is statistically insignificant.
Let's have a good time on /qa/!

>A sword meaning what? Deleting other people's posts?
Pretty much every imageboard does that to some extent, if only to stop spammers. The real question is who represents "the sword of the people" in this analogy. Traditionally, that would be moderators (aided by user reports), but that only works as long as mods' decisions reflect the values and interests of users. We're in this mess now because they no longer do. Future imageboards will have to take that possibility into account.
>Maybe you could use mods against people who were deliberately evading filters.
If every user can create their own filters, that would require mods to know every user's filters. It would also allow someone to craft malicious filters and then claim in bad faith that someone else is avoiding them.

>Or have a tag system and enforce required tags for certain subjects.
Literally trigger warnings. We all know how popular those are in imageboard culture.
>Literally trigger warnings. We all know how popular those are in imageboard culture.
I don't really care about going against culture; any new board that this might be implemented on would have its own culture. I really don't see how it's fundamentally any different from forcing threads to be on the correct board, only more flexible. How do the boorus handle loli and shota tagging? Maybe that would be an example to work off of. I'm not so sure about having a list of mandatory tags, but having mods add tags as appropriate would be valuable.
>having mods add tags as appropriate
That would require mods to constantly monitor the board, otherwise posts will slip past users' filters before they are tagged. The human time investment in moderation is already the weakest link. Tags would mainly make sense if they could reduce that load.

I've seen sites where users can tag each other's posts with a handful of predefined tags like 'troll' or 'offtopic', and can hide posts with certain tags by default. That seems to work well, but it requires a way to take away tagging privileges from users who abuse them, which is hard to implement on an imageboard without accounts.

Boorus use a variation on that model, except the tags categorize topics instead of user behaviors, users can also tag their own uploads, and users can create new tags. That's a lot of extra work per post, so posters in a fast-moving discussion on an imageboard would probably be less motivated to put in that effort.
Wait, I may have misread that line. Having mods add tags to the tag list when needed would be workable. That still leaves open the question of who should do the tagging, and how to make sure they actually do it.
>That would require mods to constantly monitor the board, otherwise posts will slip past users' filters before they are tagged.
I was thinking about tags on threads, not individual posts, but apparently I never said that part. My mistake.
Tags would be a substitute for boards.

>That seems to work well, but it requires a way to take away tagging privileges from users who abuse them, which is hard to implement on an imageboard without accounts.
Maybe require an account for tagging other people's posts but not for posting in general? Also there are anonymous imageboards with account systems, sometimes mandatory. Including this one (optional paid accounts).
