I propose we add country flags to this board
>>1936493/int/ and /pol/ are already leaking their shit all over this board the last thing we need is to give them more encouragement
Make a sex tourism general and ban every single faggot who makes a thread besides it
>>1936493i second this. cut down on the larps
>>1936493On the one hand I think flags would be useful so you know where where you're getting adviceOn the other hand it could lead to /int/ type shit posting like >>1936494 said
ridiculous that the travel board lacks flags
>>1936493We should have flag options though. We should be able to tell the difference between an anon who is travelling in Brazil and an anon who lives in Brazil.>>1936505I want a sex tourism general.
>>1936493Nah, all country flags does is detail threads faster.Mods just need to start banning obvious newfags that treat the place as of they were paying on /v/.I miss when trv was a slow, comfy board.Now it's all coomer shitposters and newfags
>>1936537introduce flags and all the larping would disappear
>>1936541No it would just lead to "you don't know about 'x' because you're from country 'y'" Go to literally any /int/ thread to see what it would be like
>>1936542agree, flags are gay. Also every smallish country would be bombarded with "how do I have sex in X" "where is the red light district in X" type questions
>>1936493>flagsNO>unique ID'sYes>>1936541When people are traveling no real reason to bother, besides flags cause a massive shitstorm of non useful discussion. It's really not hard to tell the nationality or spot larps if you've ever traveled or just use basic logic to break down the post. As the other anon said it would just cause a shitfest of "LOL MUTT THINKS HE KNOWS OF X COUNTRY LOL MUTT MUTT HAHA!" more than it already is. Unique ID's are a good idea since you can more easily see a trend of who is shitposting throughout the thread.Hell it could even increase the larp because use of a VPN easily can change that shit, or someone laying over in an airport go HEY I AM IN JAPAN LOL FAGGOTS GO HOME WHITE PIGGU!
not having flags is actually one of the positives of this board
>>1936534>I want a sex tourism general.It's not against the rules to make a STG so long as you are still discussing the foreign country in question. TEFL is allowed and does it fine.The problem with STG is absolutely fucking NO ONE bothers to look for .1 second and comes from biz/pol/etc goes HOW GET TO THAILAND NEED HOOKERS HOW DO LADS!!!!! and dumps a thread right there and then. No one would actively use it. It's not that it isn't allowed it's simply sexpats don't give a single shit about it and make their own thread.
>>1936534>We should be able to tell the difference between an anon who is travelling in Brazil and an anon who lives in Brazil.It would just cause anyone who could hook up a VPN from country or visiting said country to go larp about how they live there or some dumb shit. It's not really all that hard to realize that the biggest shitposters on this board are bongs and ESL's, aussies don't have the attention span to deal with how slow this place is.
>>1936561>vpnmost people cant be bothered to find a vpn that isnt banned by 4chan
>>1936569If you're going to shitpost/larp on trv of all places then it's probably not out of the question for someone to easily do that.Hell google and amazon offer free cloud windows 10 machines, you could easily set it in a datacenter in (country) and roll
>>1936493I agree>>1936505I agree
>>1936493Fuck no. A flag tells you only where the poster is located and not where he has travelled or even where he's really from. If anyone thinks that flags woud improve this board I implore you to spend 5 minutes on /int/.
>>1936493I was actually thinking about this yesterday.I think this board doesn't need flags by default, but an option to show your flag like how you can spoiler images in boards with spoilers would actually be useful. It gives a post more credibility when they're talking about a country if they show up with that country's flag.
>>1936493Yeah good luck with that, we’ve been asking for flags for YEARS on /biz/. You guys don’t stand a chance getting them.
>>1936594>optional flagsGreat idea.
"tranny here" and "black guy here" posters on suicide watch
>>1936493>flagsno>>1936505>sex tourism generalyes please
>>1936568>>1936534why not allow users to choose their own flag. Nobody is gonna larp because its too easy to fake.
>>1936505Maybe we should have two different generals, one for prostitutes and one for hook ups.
That already has been discussed to death, and the short answer is NO.
>>1936493Is there a way to filter flags on boards like /pol/? I think maybe the best case scenario, recognising the objections in this thread, would be giving the ability to filter american posters without necessarily showing everybodies flag to eachother.
>>1936505If we do that, then we ALSO get to ban every moralfag who enters the /sextourismgeneral/ thread to whine or complain or troll or preach.
>>1936534>I want a sex tourism general.We tried that a few times. Some janny nuked the threads within a day or even a few hours. Even faster than the pajeet jannies delete comments about what a shithole India isAnd they say there are no jannies here. Hah!
>>1936842>Even faster than the pajeet jannies delete comments about what a shithole India isAs they should. /trv/ is full of idiots who'll shoot down any thread about certain destinations--India, sub-Saharan Africa, and much of Latin America--without ever having visited the countries in question. Calling India a "shithole" repeatedly does not help anyone who intends to travel there. While a poster might hypothetically substantiate their opinion by talking about what an awful time they had traveling the place, I've yet to see it happen; the vast majority of "poo in loo pajeet' posters have clearly never been anywhere near India. >>1936493Also, there's no reason to add flags. This is a travel board--many of us are only temporarily in certain countries. Adding flags to /trv/ won't do anything but encourage LARPing and trolling. This board has already been half-ruined by /int/- and /pol/tards over the past two to three years. We used to be able to have actual conversations about traveling in developing countries, now /trv/cels will sperg about how dangerous London is because of muh Pakis.
>>1936857>No it hasn't, you shithead. It's been basically the same for as long as I've been reading /trv/, which is about ten years now.I've been coming here for just as long as you, if not longer. Good job politicizing a meta-discussion of a fucking blue board, though.
>>1936759/biz/ at least has IDs
>>1936493You've been told No multiple times you've made this thread. No! If you want to judge posts based on history or personal info, fuck off to reddit.
>>1936493>flagsNo. I dont want people to know about my place.
have the mods ever given a reason why they won't add flag to this board?
>>1936493no, it will just turn into /int/ shitposting
/trv/ is the one board where flags make zero sense
>>1936999It will turn into a complete shitfest, for example:>spend 5 years in HK but back home now>contribute to HK thread>hurr look at your flag you don't know anything niggerMeanwhile the guy who is spending a few days holiday in HK becomes the authority in the thread. Also this is a slow board, by the time your holiday is over the thread will still be up and your flag will be irrelevant. IDs make a lot more sense.
Seeing the board how it was when it (nearly) first started to now is so jarring. Blatant trolling, weird /pol/ shit and people not using the QTDDTOT thread, which should be stickied.A lot of people seem to think /trv/ is /adv/ and making 40000 "should I move here? How I get X?" threads. Oh well, no more is having threads on the first row of the catalogue going without a post for hours
I propose that "nigger" gets wordfiltered to "bix nood" again. And remove the wordfilter that changes "s o y" to "onions"; it kinda disrupts the flow of conversation, because if you're in a thread talking about an Asian country, and the topic of food comes up, it can cause confusion, as many Asian cuisines use both s.o.y. and actual onions.
>>1936999How about the whole point of this entire website is to be as anonymous as possible? Especially to other users. There is no need for flags or IDs on this board.
>>1937091>How about the whole point of this entire website is to be as anonymous as possible?This. Can't believe we forgot why we all came here in the first place. What these people are proposing is nothing but Reddit gentrification.
Thread ID's are the only thing we need because it would seriously cut down on the larp/shitposting throughout the threads.>>1937066Exactly, I can easily see the fact that I've worked in japan for a while but now back in the states due to rona would be HURRR DURR BURGER NO NUFFIN
>>1936505This always gets suggested, and everyone would be happier this way, but they never actually do it.
Why? It will just devolve into dipshits saying "nice VPN chang/pajeet"
>>1937121whenever it happens a moralfag janny eventually deletes the thread, because technically prostitution advice is not allowed on 4channel
>>1937131It's usually deleted because it's a frogpost/basedjack image at the start with a near no effort OP and derails fast by people just shitting about how much they make and willing to pay followed by it turning into a biz thread.
>>1937131>jannies are moral fagsThen why do they let you fuckers derail every thread with degeneracy? Sounds more like they're on your side champ
>>1937134this >post thread about going to london>hahaha multiculturalism beheadings pakis blah blah >post thread about mexico >hahahaha ai ai ai tacos and cartels gonna get beheaded lad >post thread about africa>ooga booga ooga booga black kweenz gonna get beheaded lad hahahahaha >post thread about india >poo in the loo pajeet hahahaha >post thread about SEA>muh asian qts >post thread about brazil>bunda bunda bunda can i get laid as a rich billionaire white man gonna get robbed and killed lad >post thread about japan >anime weeb how hard is it for a black guy to get laid i'm trans if it matters lol
>>1937140Christ, this is the most accurate account of this board I've seen yet. Mods = fags
>>1937066>>1937115>hurr look at your flag you don't know anything niggerThat doesn't make any sense. I can't believe anyone would act like that here. This is a travel forum. Why would such a person even post here if they obviously don't grasp the concept of travel? People on /int/ and /pol/ are assumed to be basement dwellers. Those boards are only to shitpost. /trv/ is a slow board. It makes sense that people here comment on topics they have researched about or even visited. I think generally it's pretty easy to differentiate between someone who knows what he's talking about and someone who doesn't. Who cares what an obvious retard says, because if you call someone out on his flag you obviously are a retard. And why would you care about another person rejecting solid advice anyway?
>>1937140Lmao trv to a T.
>>1937140Sounds like all sex tourism """discussion""" should be banished to /r/.
>>1937143Its because in the current age we live in, travel is more available than ever before, particularly to young, single white men who are more likely to have the financial means to do so. Rather than travel being an expensive hobby for adventurous people, it is now available to degenerates who are willing to pay for plane tickets and hotel rooms so they can fuck cheap hookers.They don't give two fucks about culture, history, nature, meeting people (who they aren't fucking) or expanding their perspective. They just wanna coom.
>>1937149I don't see how your post was a reaction to mine.
>>1937143Go to int, look at the shit that happens there. Seriously, there is your proof of how that shit actually happens because of flags.Flags would just lead to elitism larps far more than what is there already.
>>1937153/int/ is just basement dwellers shitposting with nothing better to do./trv/ is a board of people who actually do travel and thus know what they're talking about./int/ and /trv/ are two very different boards, I think you're rushing your conclusion.I get how someone on /int/ can enter an India thread to have some fun, but the goal of /trv/ isn't to have fun but to share information. Why would any /trv/eller enter an India thread if they don't know the first thing about the country?
>>1937156>/int/ and /trv/ are two very different boards, I think you're rushing your conclusion.Anon, I'm saying if we implement flags like on int it will directly lead to larp and elitism shit that you see there. >/trv/ is a board of people who actually do travel and thus know what they're talking about.I've never seen a more wrong post on this board and I frequently post in the Japan general to help clueless anons
>>1937142>>1937140>>1937134tbqh i'm pretty sure that each board gets a certain number of jannies, which means there's probably nobody looking at /trv/ 95% of the time
>>1937156ID's are the solution, flags will literally just fuck shit up. ID's will help show samefag posting and help avoid obvious shitposters
>>1937160this is correct. for the most part, /trv/ jannies aren't online.
>>1937157I've never been to a Japan general as I have no interest in Japan. I don't know what you're talking about, but I'll take your word for it.
>>1937168I was using it as an example not a defacto. If flags were implemented you'd see that 90% of shitposters are canadians, aussies, or bongs. >>1937160Jannies are global but have "home boards" they need to check on.
>>1937131>>1937132>>1937134>sex tourism general thread deleted just nowlmao as predicted, fuck the jannies
>>1937134be easy on them this a volunteering gig
>>1937143oh you sweet summer child
>>1937174Post a screenshot I hope it wasn't that one that was just STG and ree'ing about jannies in the OP.Try and make an informative OP for a change
>>1937174p sure /trv/ actually has 1-2 orthodox jannies who think sex tourism shit is off topic so they're always gonna delete it no matter what you frogposting incels say
>>1937180an STG is not off topic, it's just usually a cancer ridden thread that has absolutely no use. No one makes any kind of FAQ OP or informative OP that isn't absolute shit or near koopa levels of balls. Sexpats never ever use the catalog before posting and asking how to get laid, they all assume this is /v/ levels of fast and make a new thread ignoring anything already there. The problem with STG is that most of the time, if not all, it has run down to people calling eachother niggers and crypto bullshit. There have been a few in the past that were made and they all died by post 40 because no one cared. No one cares about sex shit, hell the Japan General has links to escort services in the OP and that has been going for years.STG dies because it's full of blatant shitposts and largely ignored by sexpats who are first time users of /trv/ and never read the sticky. There really isn't anyway to address the topic other than stop fucking replying to dumb shit
>>1937181it's a containment thread, without STG sex tourists will post in every thread
>>1937182>it's a containment thread, without STG sex tourists will post in every threadThey already do, STG threads have existed in the past however NO ONE USES THEM. That's the main crux of the reason they don't exist. You can go make one, but I guarantee you the next fag from biz who sells his bitcoins will pop on trv then make a thread about how to get to thailand for sex. You can go make one right now, no one is stopping you just enjoy it walking to page 10 while 3-4 threads about hookers in X country are made by cross posters. STG is not a banned topic or looked down on, it's that Sexpats never use it or make any kind of quality posts. Most sexpats who are willing to fork over hundreds for a flight + travel all the way to SEA or some shit want instant answers. They aren't willing to go look at the whole catalog and assume this board is like /v/ in terms of speed.Only legit complaint I have is the sticky needing updating, it needs to have some more useful shit like "Hey we have a Japan general if you are looking to go to Japan" or "you are looking for sex find the STG in the catalog".
>>1937187>Only legit complaint I have is the sticky needing updating, it needs to have some more useful shit For what it's worth, I actually requested that personally on 4chan's feedback submission form. I even made several suggestions for what to put on. I did this sometime last year.
>>1937195I have too, but trv is seen as such a slow self moderating board that changing the sticky isn't deemed worth it. This is just the way the board works. Hell I tried multiple times to do something about digital nomad over the years to fix the "how work abroad" shit but no one really uses it and becomes infested with ESL/JET people begging to get out of the field without any quality posts
i can't see any reason why there shouldn't be at least IDs, like /biz/. it certainly raises the quality of posts.
>>1937198>IDs>raises the quality of posts.You mean to tell me that it was even worse before they had IDs?
>>1937198ID's would be the best way to unshit up existing generals and threads that go on. No idea why this can't be implemented here as it wouldn't hurt a damn thing.>>1937201Yes, people would samefag selling shit and larp they got rich to trick people.
>>1937187>You can go make one right now, no one is stopping youjannies literally just deleted stg from the front page today
>>1937201/biz/ is full of shills and scammers, it was doomed from day one
>>1937204Post a pic of what it was, 99% sure it was that one frog post OP with 0 effort in the post
>>1937206why would I have a pic of a deleted thread lol? and it wasn't a frogpost
>>1937207Then just go make one now then, link it here.
>>1937209I'm off to bed mate, I'll make one tomorrow
>>1937204>>1937209>>1937211I'm convinced that jannies don't want to hear about anything that has "red light district" in it or is outright asking for advice on hookers. Sure, once the thread starts it's all good but there was a TJ thread that got deleted today too.
>>1938660The OP for Japan General has that shit in it and is 100% fine, stop making 0 content threads. > TJ thread that got deleted today too.Pic or proof, just go make one that isn't shit cap it and post it here. No one cares so long as the thread isn't>frog_image.png>STG>How do you go have sex in other countries where is the best? How much do I pay? STD's? MonkaS!!!!!It should be fine
Fuck no. Country flags ruined any and all discussion on /pol/ and was a precursor to the MAGAfaggot invasion in 2015-16. Keep that shit away.
A Sexpat general would work if someone put the slightest bit of effort into making one but even then most coomers will ignore generals like always and just make a new thread without looking. If you all would make one, link it, and have info in the OP it should be fine but only if you fuckers stop replying to the low quality 'have 10k bittcoin where best hookers?' threads and direct to the general.
>>1938689Flags let me know if that person is actually posting from Japan, Korea, Thailand, or just a larper. It also shows me who is the brown hands poster.
>>1939002Ok but then you invite /int/ tier posting that will genuinely attract retards to shit up the board. The positive is not worth the negatives it'll bring.
>>1939032this place has /int/ posting without the flags.
>>1939002>Flags let me know if that person is actually posting fromno it doesn't, way to out yourself as a retarded reditor, now fuck off
how about this bros, what if there's a flag dropdown for a list of flags you can check off to tell others where you've visited. This way we will be able to know who is a real traveler -- anonymously!
>>1939002>t. don't know what is tor, vpn, or ip bouncing
>>1937157>>1937140>>/trv/ is a board of people who actually do travel and thus know what they're talking about.>I've never seen a more wrong post on this boardIf this ain't the truth. /trv/ at its best is my faviroute board, but thats becoming nearly non-existantant now. I think the only thread about travelling on the hole fucking board up right now is the mauritania thread. How do we make it better bros? Flags isnt the way
>>1936494fpbpNo need for flags or IDs, what we need is less LARPing, less fags who spam shit like "hurr durr look at this picture of France, it's literally a warzone!". I can understand being disappointed by unruly Parisians, just let me suggest you to go to Colmar instead of spamming the same image macros of Skid Row-tier shit like a retard. That guy probably never set foot in France anyway.>>1936505Might not be a bad idea to let the coomers have their containment thread just like K-pop on /mu/. Good for the feds too.>>1937096>What these people are proposing is nothing but Reddit gentrification.Upvoted, but unironically. /trv/ should normally be slow enough so that anons can post detailed accounts of their traveling experiences, that's the whole point. Neither flags or IDs will fix the issue. Jannies need to do their jobs.>>1937201>Should I listen to Sam Hyde?Lmao, the guy was at the gates of Hollywood and he decided to burn it all down for /pol/ memes. He now lives among the junkies in Rhode Island just back where he started, of course you shouldn't listen to him.
trv be like>WE NEED A SEXPAT GENERALokay go make a thread that isn't shit>JANNIES WILL DELETE ITDid you make one yet>NO BUT JANNIES WILL DELETE IT THE HATE SEXplenty of threads talk about sex and have it in the OP even, what did you post>UHH J-JANNIES DELETED ITJust link it then prob in an archive>FUCK THAT I'LL LEGIT DO IT TOMORROWYou niggas just want to complain rather than actually going through the effort to make shit
>>1940326retard. There have been many attempts on creating a sexpat general. Jannies always delete them.
>>1940350>not in any archive>no one links it here when they say they will make one>no one provides any evidence of thisThe only ones that get deleted are the Sexpat general, with 1 line of OP that says nothing of importance.
>>1940351OK, why don't you try making one and see how it goes with the jannies?
>>1940354I don't have any real desire for making one as I am not a sexpat so why make a thread on something I don't care about? Why you need to pay for sex is beyond me.
>>1940379Well nobody wants to hear you complaining "rather than actually going through the effort to make shit"
>>1940380I'm pointing out that's exactly what you niggas are doing, I can state an observation about sexpats in general. I'm saying I'm not a sexpat so me making a sexpat thread would be fucking pointless since I don't know much about the topic or for that matter care all that much.
>>1940385And I'm pointing out that you're not much better than the sexpats complaining about the Jannies.
>>1940386What? I'm saying that no one here is going and making a STG when they can and then go "well jannies deleted it" Yet they don't provide any kind of proof or shit to it. I don't care that much about it since I feel that sexpats are going to just ignore generals and make a thread instantly, happens all the time with japan and that has a general.I don't give a fuck one way or the other just saying that you guys need to at least make a thread, then link it here.
>>1940390>Starts a long argument telling people to just make a STG>Listing reasons he wont do it, points out that it wont work anyway
>>1936493No. What we need are ID tags so the samefags don't shitpost and act like faggots. Flags are just tools to encourage shitposting spergyness.
>>1936852Amazing how intelligent posts like these are overlooked, while ones such as >>1937134, >>1937140 and >>1936561 offer nothing but more brainlet shitposting. /trv/ needs to be cleaned up so that ACTUAL DISCUSSION can prosper here.>cue sarcastic/racist/nonsensical response
>>1936865Gotta love how they politicse an apolitical board. Right wingers are drinking the same crazy juice as lefties these days. Shame.
>>1936999Have you not been paying attention? >>1937066 spelled it out for you. Retards like >>1937091 and >>1937096 may not get it, but you seem to have an IQ of 2, at least. Put those handful of brain cells to work.>>1937143Missed a retard. Clearly you were told by >>1937153 to go look at /int/. I browse /int/ often, and the threads I regularly visit shitpost based on flags and ethnic groups. Especially if you're not part of a well-favoured ethnicity, expect to be quoted with no text--just racist pic relateds. I don't want that to happen to /trv/, you understand what I'm saying?>>1937157>>1937162>>1937089>>1937122>>1937172>>1937181>>1937198>>1937202>>1938689>>1939032>>1940031 (though 'redditor' isn't a valid argument)>>1940153Are all correct. /threadNo further posting required.
>>1936842Because one of the threads had people openly discussing locations and the process of aquiring funny and jb in asia.
What would a quality STG OP look like? Would hookers, hookups and dating all be in the same thread? I guess there'd be a pastebin broken down by country with an overview and recommended cities/brothels/escort/dating sites. The hard part would probably be finding anons who were actually experienced with the country to write about it.
>>1936493That's a stupid idea, the IDs too.
>>1941170>funnyWhat?>>1941188>Would hookers, hookups and dating all be in the same thread?Please no.
>>1941188>Would hookers, hookups and dating all be in the same thread?Probably, which is what's happened in the past>I guess there'd be a pastebin broken down by country with an overview and recommended cities/brothels/escort/dating sites. Sexpats don't have that level of commitment to a thread like that and no one would read it.STG's in the past have always been something like this>OP with no information other than discuss sex>a fair amount of LARPers entering the threads about how they have SO MUCH SEX>lots of "I'm 6'1 white relatively good looking and have 10k, how do you get with women?" x100>Hi I'm (mutt) living in (trash city) women here are all shit, where is the best place for women. Japan good? x100>people telling others to just use tinder or other dating app followed by "wut why just tell me where to go pick up hot local ladies" posts>crypto biz faggots coming in Hey guys I want to spend 10k on a porn star hooking in (country) where do, I want quality pussylast but not least>tons of pol level yelling about how X anon who wants to go to Y country is just Z name shitting up the thread 24/7STG's don't work because they devolve faster than weebs power leveling over each other in Japan vs. korea threads. They mostly just instantly fill with /b/ and pol tier postings by the 20th post that makes them worthless. Sexpats never use the catalog either so it's basically more duplicate threads
This board is very racist. I and my fellow black guys should moderate this board.
>>1937089>I propose that "nigger" gets wordfiltered to "bix nood" againt.Nigger loving so y b oy
>>1941740Reply more coherently, you bix nood.
>FlagsI don't think they add much to a board of nomads>Unique IDsWhy on /trv/?>Sex Tourism GeneralYes, but just to limit sex shitpost threads. If somebody is in a country thread with a specific question about sex, that should stay fineAnd now I have a suggestion. Embedded maps?
>>1941765>Why on /trv/?Look at Japan General for examples of obvious samefag/larp/shitposts. It's the shining example right now of stuff that goes on in other threads already. It would help quite a bit to show what anon's actually know their shit in a thread vs. those who just parrot responses or larping followed by dumbass shitposting. There are plenty of times where discussions get hijacked from dumbass anons, and ID's would solve that. ID's would easily be the least amount of effort into threads and being the least intrusive to posting, while providing the best overall net positive.
>>1942777Literally the reason we need ID's
how could anyone be against IDs on this board?
>>1942940Because the people who larp or shitpost within the same thread for lulz would instantly get called out.
