It's a fundamental truth of the universe.

It'll happen to other things, things you hold as dear as we did /tg/. You'll take them for granted, then wake up one day and realize that nothing good has come from your favorite thing in quite a while. The old names and the fun times will be gone.

More will be created at around the same time. You may or may not make it in time to enjoy the good times there. Then the soulless, fucking idiots will come, en masse, and ruin it.

It never ends.

>> No.55652982

People moving on, quests being removed from /tg/ (because of some unrepentant/ultra-faggoty neckbeards who just can't stand the idea of talking about anything besides their precious D&D and Warhammer rules-cheese), mods who fail at applying the banhammer upon what really matters (int : striking harmless nsfw stuff instead of goddamn trolls), etc, etc

These are dark times that we live in, indeed.

>> No.55652990

NaziMod happened. Before him /tg/ was self-moderated by copious uses of SAGE and Thulsa Doom Demands Bitches to derail stupid/non-relevant and/or spam threads into something that often resulted in one or two grains of diamond among the shit.

Then the dreaded NaziMod came, swinging the legendary weapon PermaBanHammer. Many were the drawfags and writefags that were lost during that dark period. It was an age of strict content enforcement, where only DnD and Warhammer 40.000 were hallowed topics. Any thread about other topics could at any time be pruned for "not being /tg/-related".
The creativity of /tg/ was stymied and the board culture changed forever, never to be the same again. Even to this day, several years after the removal of the NaziMod this board hasn't recovered from the blow we took.

>> No.55653028

>shoving quests into their own boards was the biggest mistake in /tg/s history.

100% this. /tg/ was best when we didn't have board-specific mods and we could make whatever fun stuff we wanted to make.

Been here since day one, had a lot of great times over the years, but heavy moderation and the rise of "not /tg/-related!" has killed my desire to make new stuff for this board.

Nazimod rule was dark time and a nasty blow to /tg/s integrity, but we still managed to recover for the most part back then. mootkins admitted it was over the line, bans were lifted and new anons arose to bolster out ranks - with their own content or even just with participation.

It's hard to say when they real irreversible damage happened. Segregation of Quests was the breaking point when it became apparent, but it seems that the rot took root before that, way before.

Our mod is currently moving a bunch of diverse types of threads onto /qst/, despite these threads not being quests (judging by the description in the /qst/ sticky) because he just doesn't like them being on "his" board.

Jim Profit was the fatal blow.

A lot of people know the name, but they don't seem to remember his style or tactics. He's the guy that tried and succeeded in injecting politics into /tg/. Others tried before him, but none were successful enough to bring threads to a screeching halt with a single post.

It created a range of topics, all related to politics, that you couldn't talk about without getting screeched at by people who hated objectivism because of its association with Profit. You can't have a fun atmosphere when there are things you can't mention without a thread getting shit on.

After Jim came the smaller trolls, people like scaredofshadows, who would make it impossible to talk about werewolves in World of Darkness threads. These seem like small, insignificant topics but when the number of them increases, you end up with neo-/tg/.

No fun allowed, no matter what.

Old Man Henderson was 5 pages of a man bragging about how fucking awesome his RPG characters is. After DtD, /tg/ gave out fucking handjobs to LawfulNice. You have to have a bit of an ego to put yourself out there.

You have to BELIEVE that what you have is worth putting before Anon for judgement, or Anon will not get new material. And sure, perhaps what you have is shit, but it might also be brilliant. You don't know.

Not as pissy as nazimod, sure.
Certainly pissier than what we had in the better days. Or perhaps not pisser, but rather more... clinical, or perhaps autistic - in the figurative sense.
It's had to measure precisely, because you don't see all bans and deletions, but it seem that the ruling shifted from "spirit of the law" to "letter of the law". From a supervisor that knows the place and wants to keep it nice to rent-a-cop going by the book he doesn't fully understand to begin with.

I've been lurking around since before quests arrived, before weekend smut threads were removed - can't recall how many years ago, but /tg/ has definitely seen better days than what is now.

I can relate. 23, studying to get a 2nd profession, but I have no clue if I want to work there either.
Worst thing is, my /tg/ group has been slowly falling apart and becoming more inactive. MtG group dispersed years ago, and now I'm trying to revive warhams with the few players remaining who have some interest left.
At least our D&D group is sticking around, and I have potential people to run a game for myself too.

In the old days, if a thread on /tg/ got reported, a global mod would peek in, notice that no one in the thread seemed to be upset with its existence, and say "Well, I guess it must be on-topic, then, since I have no idea what the people on this board consider acceptable".

the most successful 4chan derivatives are usually spawned by communities that revolve around one board in particular after a major change in that board's culture, look at /k/ for example, when it started getting....weird, you had an exodus of tripfags/namefags who actually produced quality content, so they formed their own chan and a lot of people followed them there.

>> No.55654707

yeah, http://operatorchan.org/

it's a little slow but it's still active, remember, these single-board derivative chans are usually made to cater to a small group of people, you wont find much shitposting or trolls but you also don't get many posts at all. it's less a place for discussion like the more active boards on 4chan itself but more a good source of information, you can make a new thread asking a question and it might not get any replies for a couple of days, but it also won't sink to the bottom and get ignored. it'll stay on the front page for a day or two unanswered, and then someone knowledgeable will come along and give you an answer that was worth the wait.

You little shit. You think any of those things matter in comparison to having 4chan's existence become public knowledge?

This is simply an extension of the rot that comes with the entire Internet shitting on your site. You could have all of those things in the same board and maintain cohesion, without having to autistically assign each activity to a different box, because the majority of posters weren't mouthbreathing retards straight from the latest Imgur screencap collection.

They treat your stomping grounds like their personal amusement park. They shitpost because they had nothing of value on their hugely popular content aggregation sites and don't understand why anyone would care.

>Whatever. It'll be gone soon. I got to have a laugh and that's all that matters.

They showed up after the posts-per-minute went from 2-3 to 5-15. They don't know what a chill thread even looks like. The slow satisfaction of watching people build an idea is unknown to their Twitter-addled, instant-gratification-seeking minds.

I can't take it anymore. Always the same. That slow decay. It always starts with a flame, with energy and hope, a small, comfy community of good people. Then it dims. Muh real life, muh exams, muh kids, muh whatever. No you triple fucking porch monkey there are 24 hours a day, 168 a week, you can spare one or two on the subject and people you care about. It's not real life, it's complacency, it's other distractions. Oh, a new vidya, a series, something. You could use that time for something meaningful. The content decreases, both in quality and quantity, the shitters come in, and the original people either leave, turn to the shitters and/or become ""mature"". They then crack down on anything wild and free left of what made it great, they remove any trace of the original because they gotta keep the horde of shitters in check. I am always left alone in that darkness, seeking a new light, never whole again, increasingly bitter and disgruntled.

This is not pessimism. This is experience. I've watched it happen again and again, in dozens of communities, for over two decades.

One day, you just look up and realize that your neighbors are strangers, your small town is a city, the leaders you knew are gone, and anything you say about how things used to be is "nostalgia for a bygone era that never really existed anyway."

It'll happen to you, one day, and you'll bitterly curse the invaders that ruined another good thing with their stupid, clumsy herd mentalities.

You know. I've been on 4chan less than a year. Mostly because I was always afraid of all y'all people. I've really only lurked /tg/ and /co/ since this year.

I actually got on by stumbling onto 1d4chan and wandering the wiki for months. Uncovering all the cool things that have been note worthy. I went onto the suptg archieves and started bingeing quests like SWQ, Iron Quest, Joker Quest, and more. I read the thread about the undead computer and old man Henderson.

More recently, when I started lurking /tg/ and /co/ proper, I've still found many fun things. New and old shows to watch. Fantastic oc and memes when samurai Jack was airing. New table top systems to try out, new worlds I want to explore. Tons of images and drawfriend art for me look over and use to improve my own art.

I cannot comment on what it was like to exist in the hayday. All I have done is looked at the best of what you all have brought to the table. Cherry picked what's been posted over the past decade. Hand picked which threads to view and which to simply leave on the branch for others to enjoy.

And all I can say is thank you, all. Despite what you all may think, you have at least improved and broaden the experience of one random guy stuck in this ever advancing world. And for that, I am grateful to all you wonderful bundles of sticks.

Oh no, you misunderstand, I was referring to the second thing. /pol/ posting is bad everywhere, its the reason I can't even go to /v/ anymore and largely consider the board dead, with /a/ teetering on the edge of the same.
I meant the second thing. What some people don't like hearing is that the 'change' in their board wasn't one thing. There wasn't a shift from old to new, from good to bad. The site and every board on it has been changing all the time, bit by bit every single month. Some of these changes are for the worse or better, but most of them are just changes. No good or bad, things are just different because people change how they act and speak, and old people leave while new people join. I mean little things like x meme going out of style and y taking its place, or a certain type of posting not happening anymore. Things like that, things that one person might have thought the staple of the board while someone else thought the weird outlier.

The board as we knew it really kind of died when moot started taking a more active interest in 4chan. There were a lot of things 4chan needed, since it was starting to get just sticky with spam threads. I remember that one that kept artifacting worse and worse over time - it became a Nurgle meme, though not a popular one. A joke about decay and all.

But moot wanted moderators to take control of the board, and for many long years he enforced an "anti-shitposting" policy, which meant the mods could just ban or delete anything they wanted. /tg/ was hit like a fucking train. The first mods to reach the board leveled the place. They banned a bunch of the artists and forbade discussion of most of the board's culture.

We used to come up with a lot of clever setting and game ideas by starting with one abstract thing and bouncing into another. Now everyone mostly talks about rules as they're strictly written in the books, so overall the atmosphere is less creative than it was.

But that was all so long ago. It'll be ten years soon.
