4chan should split the /b/ board (130)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-28 23:27 ID:MUvGvd8x

I think 4chan should follow Futaba's model and make more than one /b/ board. Why?

  1. The board moves too fast. By the time you post to a thread, it's already deleted.
  2. The board is mostly filled with unfunny kopipe. Kopipe wouldn't likely move from one /b/ to another, thus decreasing the problem.
  3. Meme creation has slowed down considerably, mostly due to the boards being flooded with kopipe. Good memes would transfer between the /b/'s, whereas crappy ones would only be posted on one board by those who are forcing it.

Just a thought.

The hell? 4chan actually fucks with people who deserve it?

Seriously, where did that dumb bitch get off trying to ask for money? And who was dumb enough to give it to her?

How did this thread become about Gaia? Gaia sucks now, then, and forever more.

Of course, that's basically the case with world4chan too.

It was once like 4cahn. Now it's like KidShit land. It started off as a conversation as to have Gaia and Myspace have their own imageboards where the fuckheads can stay and post fat CP.

87 Name: Verg : 2007-08-14 03:49 ID:alQZFj2i

CP? Please tell me the conversation hasn't veered towards child pornography.

88 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-08-14 05:09 ID:qMYH0vN4

No, I'm just insulting the people that are idiots and those who make you look bad.

Also, let's hope that Mysaps make an imageboard for all the world to see so that Myshit can finally die.

/b/ sh ould be on another domain all in its on right than 4chan. In fact, the people posting on /b/ should be shot and/or hung and/or sent to an island without food

for all you newfags not getting this:

4chan is /b/.
You do not split /b/ from 4chan, you split the other boards from 4chan, because you cannot split 4chan from 4chan, which in case you didn't get; IS /b/.

In the beginning there was /random/ ,then /a/ where the community grew from (mostly FYAD in /b/-random and ADTRW posters in early /a/)and also MOTD's on Raspberry Heaven and a few GBS's helped to spread the word and combined made 4chan what it sadly isn't today.
(most of the users today dont even know who Hiroyuki Nishimura is.)

The other boards came later.. some of them had to split due to obvious reasons, /g/ and /l/, but never /b/.. /b/ was like a mixture of /g/ /h/ /l/ but it never split, why?

Because /b/ is 4CAHN.

I think you're confusing dropping a board with splitting it.

96 Name: 返信 : 2007-08-23 05:09 ID:I6CZ/Kiw

>>95

no im not.
i am fully aware of what OP meant by splitting the board, i am talking about splitting as in moving boards to another domains like for example /l/ did.
I should have quoted some of the people ITT that talked about removing /b/ from 4chan, my bad.

97 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-08-23 18:49 ID:nqnESDtx

>>96
/l/ and /g/ weren't split in that sense either, they were dropped completely by 4chan to prevent trouble from the hosting company/advertisers/paypal/etc. Later on gurochan, not4chan and such were started by entirely different teams to fill the void.

98 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-09 06:29 ID:gMTr2AfC

Alls I know is, they need to do something about the speed of /b/. The postings are way too fast for it to be fun to browse for me anymore.

99 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-11 01:34 ID:wykAOg7r

fuck spliting /b/, all it needs is a little bit of mod justice.

honestly, maybe 70% of the posts on 4chan are bullshit, what if that seventy percent gets banned? or not even 70 just 10 percent of all posts. That way, people start posting meaningful shit.

105 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-25 13:28 ID:U1NpqEF3

/b/ has lost hope. It's just annoying even to have a decent thread without a hundred stupid replies.

106 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-26 19:35 ID:NJmz1+pb

Ultimately, what this thread is about is the fact that the internet is becoming mainstream. And, after years in the company of people smart enough to set up a computer, we're not ready to accept how stupid most people really are.
On topic, I agree that the /b/ board should be split, with several identical boards to prevent stupid wars between them. With any luck, 4chan's moderators will be willing to handle it again, and we can improve the overall quality of the place.

107 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-27 05:45 ID:/SIS9qMC

I really don't care what happens to /b/ or its thousand bastard offspring any more. They're all filled with boring, normal people now. People who have actual conversations about their daily lives. Kids who think it's another clique they can join. And genuine trailer trash that somehow managed to manipulate a keyboard. /b/ was never good, but it used to suck less.

108 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-09-27 22:54 ID:kka0R9Tb

agreed, it's gotten to the point where guro is bad now in /b/. I mean wtf, I can't post flame-cat without getting at least one post that proclaims how horrible of a person I am. And wtf is up with all the camwhore threads? Holy grail? Fuck that shit, where's the mods when you need them? I'd mod the shit out of /b/ if I was mod. Too bad you either have to be rich (snacks) or a good friend of Moot to be a mod...

You fags completely miss the point.

/b/ is all about the stupidity. Indeed, thats what anonymous is about, you can be a (insert group)fag if you want to without giving a shit if anyone likes it or not. You just sit back and enjoy the lulz as they roll in. Someone fails epically? You lol. Someone creates a legendary threadGET? You lol.

/b/ is now, and always has been about the lulz.

B has gotten really shitty lately. I mean, it always was shitty, but the copypasta isn't even funny anymore, and the shops are way less than legendary. All it seems to be now is camwhores and random porn. Remember the days when this shit would actually get saged? :/

>>112
Whenever someone takes the initiative to produce their own material in /b/, others seem to get the hint and make it better for everyone. Unfortunately, it seems that to most its more convinient and just as entertaining to say OMG MOTIVATE ME and see a thread full of cruft you've seen 100 times before.

114 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-12 05:50 ID:Jzrfds4i

Now's the time to strike. By that, I mean the camwhores are 50% gone, the Gaiafaggots have gone back to school, and I'm also very sure that Newfaggots are out, and if not, are very vulnerable. We should at least ask that white cat Moot to step up a Cookie Banning system. Hell, even the Gaiafaggots have that if you've been to 4chan and tried to come back.

For those of you just tuning in, 4chan admins have now throttled /b/. There are significant limits to posting:

  • 30 seconds between replies
  • 45 seconds between replies with images
  • 10 minutes (yes, minutes) between new threads

Also, the following changes were made to how /b/ appears:

  • Limit of 5 posts per thread shown on front page reduced to just 3
  • Limit of 10 threads shown on the front page increased to 15
  • Fewer lines will now be shown per post/reply on the front page

All in all, so far it looks like the changes have made a positive impact.

>>123
If it was to conserve bandwith, why would they increase the limit of threads per page from ten to fifteen?
That's a 50% increase on threads up before they are auto-deleted, plus they've increased to the replies a post can have before being auto-saged to something like 350.

125 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-10-31 23:44 ID:ld3iJiGn

> why would they increase the limit of threads per page from ten to fifteen?

It might prevent someone from having to look for a thread they just created on the second page.

> increased to the replies a post can have before being auto-saged to something like 350.

Cuts down on recreation of dying threads.

Oh lawd, at this rate they'll eventually be up to 1000 posts max like the text boards. It's kind of wierd, this sort of reverse evolution that's come about from westerners being introduced to Futaba-style boards before 2ch-style boards.
