Is there an easy way to speak with 4chan staff? What if I have something I want to contribute to 4chan that I don't think will get seen on /qa/?

They're bitching about anime, you're just trying to split hairs, again.

The facts are simple. we have multiple people spam or post threads against anime on /news/, and they've all been deleted. This means you're argument banning anime from /news/ is without merit.
>>
>>2496101
>They're bitching about anime, you're just trying to split hairs, again.
They're bitching about the misuse of anime for political purposes, which Japanese anime fans also do.

People "split hairs" with you because you choose to repeat things that are blatantly untrue.

Correct.
>>
>>2496103
The vast majority aren't whining, they're shitposting. Also:
>bro just leave your house if you don't like these squatters staying here

Is essentially what you're saying. Which is retarded. There's still the occasional good thread here and there. The overall quality has just declined.

Mods like to pretend they don’t read this board so...
>ITT: We plan a revolution against the 4chan staff.
Before doing so however, we need to create a list of demands that the staff can choose to accept or deny to potentially prevent the revolution. Add your demand in numerical order ITT.
(Best Practices:
A) Ignore bootlickers, trolls, jannies, and mods who say horse shit like IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, LEAVE because the reality is if these folks in power don’t like it, we will fuck their shit up. Those are the only two options.
B) Copy this thread and paste it in your notes or a .txt file in the event that mods get immature nuke this thread. Repost once it dies.)

I’ll start:

1) Use a different platform for the captcha system.
We no longer wish to train Google’s worrisome A.I. just for some more revenue in Hiro’s pockets. Additionally, we notice that you have selected the strictest setting for this recaptcha, allowing for some anons to have to solve over 15 captchas before posting and raking in additional revenue for Hiroyuki.
Here are some other captcha services that you can use in place of reCAPTCHA:
Deathbycaptcha - http://www.deathbycaptcha.com/
2captcha - https://2captcha.com/
Anticaptcha - https://anti-captcha.com/

DEMAND #
8) Open up a separate line of communication different from the IRC and the feedback form. Make it function similar to your backdoor van appeal allocation system, where users can provide their email alongside a problem they have and are expected to have gotten back to within a set timespan. Even if mods are incapable of giving a satisfying response, any response to reasonable questions or concerned must be prioritized.
We can’t go forward with a staff that doesn’t give a fuck about us.

9) Create a form for new board petitions.
The best way to combat a certain form of content being spammed on particular boards is to create new boards to cater to said content. We saw this with the creation of >>>/soc/ and >>>/mlp/.

If you create a form allowing for users, maybe even just 4chan pass users to petition a board, and have all users vote on the creation of maybe one or two boards each year, we can alleviate a lot of these issues. And in cases where there are petitions for boards that you don’t want to create like /l/ - Lolicon, all it takes is a simple explanation like “Our advertisers wouldn’t allow for us to promote this topic” or whatever. People might be upset, but at least they will be satisfied and you won’t have to hear from them again.

Do you remember a while back when you would click on an image and occasionally it would load kind of slow, even for small filesizes?
That was because some images were fetched from different image servers to help stabilize heavy user traffic, those image servers being called is2.4chan and later is3.4chan
>>
>>2495588
They were alternative image servers hosted with OVH Canada that were presumably set up to try and reduce 4chan's Cloudflare bills. Especially is2 was notoriously slow at times, and whether they overall helped to cut costs (especially since all consumers of the 4chan API such as 4chan X, mobile apps and 4chan archivers kept using i.4cdn.org, which is a Cloudflare frontend to 4chan's primary servers) was more than questionable.

>>2494123
They really ought to fork it and have an internal version that works with their mod tools and they can trust isn't backdoored.

/vg/ is overcrowded. This means that the time it takes for a thread to reach page 10 is way too low, maybe under half an hour. The consequences of that for slower generals are lots of spam bumping or discussion/shitposting about completely unrelated things, which leads to a general, very noticable decrease in quality, which then also leads to more people leaving, intensifying the problem in a vicious cycle.
Many generals of more niche games have already died or been merged with other generals, where they live on only in spirit. Others consider moving to other boards or chans.
Most people blame the fault of this problem on the anime waifu phone gambling gacha games that are ludicrously popular for some reason.

Something has to be done. Either:
>increase the amount of pages on /vg/
>create a separate board for phone or anime game generals

Post suggestions for how to improve /vg/ or how to reach someone who has the say on 4chan because jesus christ this is fucking unbearable.

All those generals for VNs that are just waifu dumps and tripfag circlejerks should be removed as well.
They have literally no reason to exist and are kept alive by just a handful of autists.

Are there generals which have equally western and eastern developed games still?

/tbtg/ (formerly /xcg/) for example
western side:
>XCOM
>Battle Brothers
>Into The Breach
>Space Hulk
>Advanced Wars
>Battle for Wesnoth
>Invisible, Inc.
>mordheim
>X-COM
eastern side:
>Disagea
>Valkyria Chronicles
