We should add some new boards here how about a otaku culture board for discussing otaku culture and other types of otaku stuff a NEET/hikikomori board for people who don't work or go to school and stay at home and live with their parents a Japan general discussion board to discuss Japan and Japanese culture.

Those sound more like boards for imageboards not textboards.

I think some of these are OK ideas, but more as replacements for existing boards than as new ones in addition to them.

Anime and Manga could be rolled into a single 'Japanese pop culture' board. I don't think otaku culture and general Japanese culture deserve separate boards. If they were two boards, the latter would probably be dead or only contain threads that overlap with other boards (like Fashion and Music.)

There'd be an argument to roll everything under the Culture header (and possibly Fashion, Food and Hobbies as well) into just one board called something like Culture or Media or Hobbies, not country specific.

Personal Issues is effectively the NEET/hikikomori board already except for rare visits by normies. IAA was one too long ago but turned into general textboard & imageboard discussion at some point. NEET/hikikomori posts may still be on topic there.

Just use /personal/ for NEET/hikki blogposts.

We need to archive all these threads from the 2000s and start fresh to be honest.

>how about a otaku culture board for discussing otaku culture and other types of otaku stuff

There are already multiple boards for that.

>a NEET/hikikomori board for people who don't work or go to school and stay at home and live with their parents

It's called Personal.

>a Japan general discussion board to discuss Japan and Japanese culture.

You're trolling now, right?
There's no way someone would think a board like this would go well in an anonymous English site.
It's prime flame material.

Also, ''otaku culture'' boards bring out the worst shitposters to sites, and most of those guys aren't really into the specified hobbies, they just want to be as random as possible.

Fair enough.

>It's called Personal.

Personal is also used by non-NEET people.

>There's no way someone would think a board like this would go well in an anonymous English site.

Why not? this site is pretty much is the English version of 2channel and most of the boards here have to do with Japanese pop culture and nerd culture.

I agree with this i hate that nerd culture became mainstream and that normalfags took over geek/nerd culture it is easy to spot a larper.

No, no one uses /personal/.

Is that really a problem?

>Why not? this site is pretty much is the English version of 2channel

It really isn't because it's too little compared to 2/5channel and it's also an international site.

>and most of the boards here have to do with Japanese pop culture and nerd culture.

Which are different things compared to more general discussion about Japan/Japan's culture and attract even more flaming, trolling and retardation.
''Just bought this fake katana on an antique shop, can anyone help me identify what the kanji on the blade mean?'' thread x one million.

No but it would be nice if NEETs had their own board.

>It really isn't because it's too little compared to 2/5channel and it's also an international site.

You do realize we have Japanese people who post here too right?

>Which are different things compared to more general discussion about Japan/Japan's culture and attract even more flaming, trolling and retardation.

Well if admin moderates it it should be fine.

New admin has actually been doing a good job dealing with spam/trolls, but we don't need to increase their workload by creating even more boards as dead as those that already exist.

Good point.

You missed my point.
What I'm saying is that unlike 2/5channel on this site the mods would have to deal with a never sleeping bunch of international shitposters and you need lots of manpower to deal with that.

>Well if admin moderates it it should be fine.

It won't unless there's a mod around all day every day.
