Friendly reminder that we have a tumblr mod by the name of Inspector Redwood
who deletes all sorts of threads on /a/ but refuses to touch recommendation or sauce threads
His goal is to transform /a/ into another hugbox like /co/ which he's done a fantastic job of doing
good job for linking them so the janitor could delete them :)
Looks like you guys are dealing with the same shit that killed off /jp/.
>three of the threads are dead
great point you made there moron
>deleting rec threads
OH NO! THAT ASSHOLE MOD!! HOW DARE HE!!!!
OP is a stupid faggot. Move along.
>hugbox like /co/
anon, the complaint is that he does NOT delete rec threads.
>deleting them just as the thread was made
Redwood why do you only delete threads when you're called out on your faggotry?
4 of those thread, including all 3 of the deleted threads are recommendation threads.
because he is easily manipulated like a child by /a/?
he's black so he doesn't have much of a brain
I'm pretty sure Mod's aren't allowed to reveal their identity, especially on 4chan
Anon, you're asking too much of me. You can't expect me to read OP's nonsense. Sorry if I just inferred.
Why does he have different trips?
Are you prechance a shitposter OP?
This is our mod? Holy shit.
you can blame spooky for leaking all the janitor and mod names on /q/ and sports chan
No, he isn't.
You only want another n/a/ruto.
>implying you don't want this sweet chocolate booty
better than that pasty white boy kinomod
I knew they shouldn't have sent Thad directly to jail. He's more powerful than he's ever been now.
Well like I said, I though mods weren't supposed to use trips or anything of the like on 4chan
Just because you know the name of a mod (if he's even a mod) doesn't mean he's the only one moderating
we battled the srs and the likes of these faggots in /pol/ a while ago. Fight for your identity /a/.
>that NYCC sticky on /co/ for over a week
Total /soc/ and /cgl/ faggot
Hwo do you even get to know a mod's identity?
To be honest, I can see why the moderation on 4chan is so fucking shit now. Wow.
He isn't here anyway, look at the different trips, ot's literally one shitposter trying to cause another n/a/ruto.
He's been the one deleting loli threads,sad panda threads and cleaning up troll naruto threads for a year
Our glorious mod overlords.
You're saying that like n/a/ruto had any effect on /a/ whatsoever anon.
What are you talking about?
that's redwood's trip in OP's link. He's just spamming homestuck images or whatever
Mods and janitors are allowed to use trips, the issue here is that it was easy to know who's a mod before (thanks to the 4chan IRC) so if they used the trip people would just go "HEY WHY DID YOU DELETE/WHY WONT YOU DELETE Y" whenever they post. If no one knows, it's not really an issue. As long as they don't make it too obvious they're a staff member
Thanks for hiring niggers, moot.
jesus he's a pony fag and an AT autist?
Some retard started to post using redwood username with a different trip.
He's trying to force another mod/userbase clash.
There is no RULE against recommendation threads on /a/. If recommendation threads are to be verboten, a rule should be added to the rules page. The common excuse used for their deletion, "requests belong on /r/", is a selective abuse of that particular rule. The logic behind it is faulty, you could just as easily extend that reason to banning all threads that contain the words "what does /a/ think about". Not every question is a "/r/equest", the mods need to stop exercising personal bias and formalize the rules of what is or is not appropriate to post instead of implicitly inviting this kind of drama.
>There is no RULE against recommendation threads on /a/
How weird, the one posting in /a/ has a different trip, it's almost like that time siz chan started a which hunt!
Or just, you know, delete the threads because they piss off pretty much everyone here.
See for yourself.
I hate to be the one to break this to you anon but
>Global Rule 16: All requests belong on /r/ unless otherwise noted.
You miss the entire point of my post.
It is unfair to delete a thread that is not breaking any rules only because of your particular bias in what kinds of threads you like. Please reread my post, you will see the suggestion I make regarding this and my reasoning for it.
You also display a surprising inability to read. I suggest you try again.
>he's black so he doesn't have much of a brain
>Much of a brain
Subhumans have brains?
Do you really want 4 pages of recommendation threads?
Because i know you're a special individual i even got you an image to go along with it
And a homestuck.
i'm now gonna start reporting every thread that contains a question mark because technically that's a request and requests belong in /r/ :^)
Well that doesn't seem be the case if this Redwood guy is actually a mod on /co/
8/10 I snorted
>Not every question is a "/r/equest"
This so much. Sometimes its really funny to see people accusing an OP of making a 'thinly veiled rec thread' just because some question is posed.
I wonder what's it like to suck your own dick?
It is not, have you ever been here in the summer? Even with the rule and the threads being removed they pile up.
I love how the majority of posters who flip their shit over rec threads AREN'T the people who truly believe the board would be a better, cleaner place without them; they're just shitposters who luck jumping on the HAHA BAN THAT GUY FOR THE LULZ bandwagon.
It's literally the exact same person who was starting this shit on /q/. Hey OP, try putting periods at the end of your posts sometime.
Fuck you. I laughed.
Except it really isn't that clear cut ever, not to the mods, not to anyone. Some of that shit needs to go, some of it doesn't. You can't enforce some arbitrary rule.
I don't care about a shit /co/ mod shitposter, stop shitposting.
Finally an excuse to post this.
Which retard was he there where so many it's hard to remember
Was he the one who would make threads then delete them just to complain about it on /q/?
Or was he the one who hold told like a bitch by moot?
What happened to Rapeape, confirmed SRS operative?
So you have the ability to read people's mind throught 4chan?
>All that fallacy
Just fuck off somewhere else if you want recs.
what anime is this
Mods are global, newshit.
To be honest, I don't see all 'rec' threads as bad. I'm fine with it if it's a very specific question that no chart can answer and it is one that can be used to generate discussion rather than just having people answer then leave.
For a while, if the recommendation thread was niche enough and the OP seemed to know what they were talking about, it would be respected and people would actually post recs. Now, /a/ seems to flip their shit over everything.
this just in : many mods have a home board, and many mods do not ever go to other boards
They tend to stay in certain boards, stupid faggot, that's why we have kino.
Yeah, it's called all you children being completely transparent and obvious.
>that can be used to generate discussion rather than just having people answer then leave/
Have you EVER been in a fucking recommendation thread dude?
That's exactly what every single one of them do
Prove it, dumb cunt. Oh wait, you can't.
Yes, really. At least be educated before you shitpost.
How do you even figure out the identity of a mod?
>new to /a/
maybe I can get some help instead of being called a faggot, but why do you guys hate recommendation threads so much?
Is it because the board would be over run with them if they weren't?
Good. Because /a/ is a board where you can discuss Bleach and One Piece freely but shit on Naruto threads. Maybe Inspector Faggot can help clean this place up for Moot.
It's the fault of the poster. They no longer put any real work into their OP post and instead every single one feels like a copy pasta because it's all "I saw Cowboy Bebop, DBZ and some other shit please rec me the same". It's stale shit and needs to be deleted.
Some former-janitor leaked a bunch of stuff on a different chan including all the names used in the IRC only accessible by moderation staff.
I rarely post and I report generic 'what should i watch' recommendation threads because I never needed one and it only takes around 10-20 minutes of lurking to find a show that they'd probably think is decent looking enough to watch.
It's human nature, all 4channers have a home board or boards they stay on
burdeon of proof is on you to prove that mods stray from the default case
or for example do you spend time equally on all boards, including /v/, /b/, /co/, etc?
It's even worse when they do it for something /a/ doesn't discuss much. They leave and post a smiley and it's dead.
I'll have a word when I see him on /sp/.
I've seen a couple of lame ones but if I'll be honest, I'm not offended by recommendation threads at all.
>Is it because the board would be over run with them if they weren't?
That seems to be the prevailing argument against such threads. I'm not convinced it's a legit concern though. Anyone who poses a question well will have a good thread while shitty one will obviously get poor/little responses.
No wonder so many people get banned for being racist towards blacks on /co/
recommendation threads have been viewed as an annoyance for a very long time (2008 at the very least)
rec threads that get recommendation without being shitposted on are actually the exception
No, stop posting and fuck off.
That and because it's information that you can easily grab and parse through with google. It's not exactly the type of anon you want on a board.
newfags trying too hard to fit in. they don't care about the quality they just see someone asking a question and start shitposting.
Because 99% of these threads could have been solved by a quick google search. It generates no discussion or content for the board and just ends up spamming shit up. They are also so frequent that it is infuriating to see the same question asked over and over.
Mostly. Personally it just reminds me of places outsides of here and I'm just sick and tired of it. Lurk more and google. The only things you need to do.
Anyone that's not a newfag does not need a rec thread.
And newfags shouldn't post.
No, dumb fuck. The burden of proof is on you. It is a fact that mods are global and have the power to moderate any board they want as they so please.
You're making the claim that they only stick to one board regardless but can't provide proof.
Kino mod also posts on /cgl/.
This one made me laugh
We shouldn't be the ones who pick a show for someone, it only takes a moment to google some very good resources, and a little bit of lurking never hurt anyone.
Ah, so you do spend time on /v/, /co/ and /b/. Please return there, since apparently it is not the default condition that people stick to specific boards, since as you said, you don't!
Yeah he is a huge FAGGOT. WHO hangs in the TRAP threads
I understand they're technically bannable offences, but why does moot allow this public bias?
Nice strawman, kiddo. You're wrong.
You say anything about /lgbt/ its an instant ban
That's what I meant by niche bro. If the rec thread had a decent OP and wasn't just "pls rec me shit like code geass xD" or the like, people would actually post in them. But now, we just shit on everything that's a rec thread, no matter if it was asking for anime like DBZ or biomecha sienen from the 80's with extra tentacles.
But it's true! Any thread that starts with a question is a request to have that question answered. Mods confirmed by deleting question threads using /r/ as an excuse.
Everything everyone here will tel you is a lie there are two real reasons
1. /a/ wants to stay as hostile and elitist as possible to ward off newcomers especially from tumblr/reddit/unwanted parts of 4chan (this is legitimate btw i agree with it)
2. anything even slightly offtopic results in massive trolling because /a/nons are called /a/utists for good reason and will throw a massive shitstorm about liking/not liking/rating/etc anything about anime and the board requires very strict rules to keep this autism productive and in check lest it devolve into say, /vg/ or some other autistic anything-goes shitfset
redwood is on /a/ now?
Wait, so the mod is a nigger on his way to page 15?
And do you know why we shit on them little anon?
It's because they're against the rules.
You gotta be kidding me
/a/ turning to a hugbox, seems kinda like a good thing, since there's a chance we might evolve to a sexbox from there.
there are no decent rec threads
Answer the following
1. Do you browse all boards equally or do you have a few that you spend more of your time on?
2. Do you think that your answer in #1 is typical, or a-typical?
Other anons are encouraged to answer as well, because the answer is quite obvious.
It's because of the lack of clear moderation that a board has to settle for an all or nothing approach.
Affirmitive action goy :)
>no matter if it was asking for anime like DBZ or biomecha sienen from the 80's with extra tentacles
That's not entirely true. Some rec threads go by quietly. Although there are some which are taken down a little brashly, that's not all of them, although it is most of them.
Redwood usually hangs out in KLK and Shingeki no Kyojin threads
Think he watches space dandy too
I don't think he branches out to other threads
Obviously threads that go "Hi, I just finished watching Bebop, can you recommend me any other similar shows?" are of little value but when you have some one asking for examples of shows that feature realist animation for instance, you're not going to easily find that information on more casual anime sites. Interesting, specific questions can foster good discussion.
To /lgbt/ with you.
Read the thread, the retard shilling for naruto/rapeape is now doing it with redwood.
Pfff, we told a blindmam to fuck off a few hours ago.
it need not even be against the rules
they're just plain annoying
I still mad when mod deleted my thread that using this sfw picture.
Well, Rustle really needs to fuck off already.
But seriously, what proof is there that he's a mod?
We tumblr now?
Because blacks are oversensitive pos.
Looking at this "mod" post history, if its authentic, OP has a point. This faggot should not be on /a/
People pieced it together after the whole /q/ fiasco, public bans over racism against blacks, the increase in moderation in HSG henever he posts. People get publicly banned in the homestuck threads when he posts
He's an avid tumblr user pretty soon /a/ is going to have regular social justice threads
But they aren't.
You've got that backwards.
Anyone who actually uses the word "recommendation" or any variant thereof is a retard and deserves all the shit they get.
The best way to get specific recommendations is to foster discussion on a particular topic and see what comes out of it.
Pickers of cotton?
Fuck you guys and your meta threads. If you spend enough fucking time wasting your life on this shithole, you deserve the angst that shitty moderation causes.
example in a thread redwood created
Do you want me to go copy paste the rule again dude i've done it like 7 times tonight
How can we stop this cancer?
Piles of cum.
>hating on redwood
neo-/a/, gentlemen and gentlemen
Not to mention he always dodges the questions whenever people ask him in HSG
He's terrified of even acknowledging them.
You can't, just find somewhere to go like I do.
I just take your word for it
Burn the homestuck faggot
purchasers of chicken
Purveyors of crime.
Yeah he's actually kind of nice. I just wish he wouldn't be so protective of people. He's really strict about being nice to each other.
Is everyone going to ignore the fact that OP is clearly trying to cause another n/a/ruto?
Because that's cool, shitpost lioe /v/ermin away, i could usee some backlog watching.
Clearly you have reading difficulties.
apparently you've been pasting your little "MUH /R/EQUESTS BOARD" shit so many times you failed to read the thread
Is he really the mod? He doesn't really know shit about /a/ though. He's mostly a comic fag. He should have just became a mod in /cgl/ or /fit/. You know the boards he actually browses. I don't have anything againts him but why would they make him a mod when he doesn't even watch anime.
So you're saying the rules doesn't count because you don't like it?
Now anon going against the person who made the fucking website isn't going to get you anywhere
Hitler couldve stopped this
Into the oven he goes!
Read the thread, it's the same /q/ shitposter trying to force a shitstorm, who in their right mind would try to moderate /a/ after we doxd an outsider mod?
We have those threads here as well.
>Why a blacks the coolest weeaboos
Read the post again. Try hard, I know you can do it.
If nothing else, he's a cross-boarder, so fuck 'em
Why is this thread still up?
I'm going to go back to watching arrow while everyone shitposts each other to death
If you don't want to follow the rules feel free to fuck off to tumblr.
Open the first link in that pastebin, the sports one, and then find post 40800.
Apparently those are all the janitors and mods.
That would explain people banned for KLK criticism.
We haven't had any mods on /a/ for hours
Most we had was some janny who came through and deleted like 4 threads before going back to watching porn
NiggerHitler stole your freedom.
Just like Snowden shitposted causing shitstorm against NSA?
It's not about being offended you stupid shit, it's about the quality of the board. Instead of lurking, newshits come in, make rec threads and the make "so I just watched this" threads with complete disregard for manners or quality of their posts.
4chan mods don't exactly make it difficult to figure out their identity when they let newspaper reporters or online news blogs like the New York times take pictures of themselves with moot.
Fact, all mods are Americans.
Fact, the mods live close enough to moot who is currently living in New York to be able to meet up for dinner should moot make such a request meaning most mods are East Coast Americans.
There are also pictures that confirm that Canvas employees are also 4chan mods as well.
Here is a picture of moot at his "Canvas workplace".
Canvas has a total of 10 employees.
Statements moot made in the past mention 4chan has around 7 to 10 full time mods.
The guy in the black sweater next to moot in the bottom left is definitely a 4chan mod or at least one of the staff.
You may have seen the guy in the black sweater in that moot livestream web chat with Hiroyuki when they were in Japan and him just saying a few sentences about 4chan inner workings.
Also, see the 2 males sitting across from moot where one is wearing a green shirt and the other is in a grey hoodie?
They are confirmed 4chan mods and also work as Canvas employees.
Not all Canvas employees are 4chan mods but the majority of them are
Check out this recommendation thread.There here to change /a/
Here's one more picture of 4chan mods hanging out with moot for a New York Times spread.
Tumblr truly is the cancer of mankind.
>/a/ is going to have regular social justice threads
KlK threads are already full of that shit. How many episodes left? I just want it to end.
The American only mods fact was years ago. Surely he's hired mods for European and Asia/Pacific timezones now.
IF that guy on the left isnt a SJW liberal I dont know what is
>KlK threads are already full of that shit.
Good thing I don't go to those.
Just wait for SHAFTs Meikaku City Actors to air. 4chan will become tumblr itself.
Sorry, but I can't help but go into threads about anime I hate and want to end.
So we'll all become /co/?
>its obvious this is the place to ask and im being 100% serious.
You'd think a line like that would set off your sarcasm-meter.
Wait, it's still alive?
Also, one or two people in this Japan moot meet-up may be a mod as well.
The girl with the baby is apparently a former /g/ mod who retired from moderating 4chan after getting pregnant but /g/ has no idea if she is bullshitting or not but it sounds legit because it is known that 4chan used to have a female mod on staff who retired in the past.
This place needs some fearless leaders.
That guy is wearing an adventure time shirt and a fucking pink tie. What a faggot.
Also, one or two people in this Japan moot meet-up may be a mod as well.

nah, snacks faggotry can work for /b/ but not for /a/.
And then they tell jews dont control internet and media and there is no Zionist conspiracy...
There is only one board who tries to fight back against this tumblr reddit invasion. Even they are having a hard time
My question is why you whining faggots haven't found a more niche imageboard/irc channel to discuss your animu on. There's literally no way to save this board from the ever increasing cancer.
moot looks like a retarded man child who's half waving.
They're too ded. Like "there's a thread made 4 years ago in the 3rd page."
Redwood, you fucking nigger fix the shithole that is /co/ immediately, instead of dicking around here.
Probably because there's no where with even half the community of /a/ and no way to organize a mass migration without bringing the cancer. Not to mention sentimental value.
You think that if there weren't some other reasonable place to go to, I wouldn't already be there?
I know, /a/.
>They're too ded.
Not the ones I'm on. Granted, they're not as fast as /a/, but keep in mind that /a/ years ago was also slow as hell.
You haven't looked hard enough.
7chan doesn't have catalogs. CATALOGS MAN.
>giving two shits about /co/
/co/ and be nuked off the earth for all we care we just don't want him fucking with /a/.
Its like you dont browse /a/
As if there's not enough reasons to kill myself everytime when I open /a/, threads like this literally gives a despair.
Moving people somewhere else is hard. Everyone is used to /a/ and how fast it is, and other chans generally don't work so well simply because they are not 4chan. Everyone just keeps coming back, because we're here forever.
If we were to make a sucessful migration, someone would have to come up with a place that was almost but not quite, entirely unlike 4chan.
>refuses to touch recommendation or sauce threads
Those get deleted pretty fucking regularly
And now the retards late to the thread don't read it and see it's a shitposter.
Snacks got old and he is balding from pictures I saw of Snacks at that convention 4chan panel moot did a few months ago.
I have one.
It's small enough that most anons would consider it a circlejerk though.
/a/ is mai waifu
Just like my animus
what a fag
/moe/ is gay.
Around Snacks never relax
Because they're shit?
After /a/ kicks the bucket it'll be time to learn that moon and move to futaba.
Looking at those /co/ niggers and i gotta say. I am quite grateful for /a/ for the way it is.
no one there is attractive
If there's any place where I can strike up a conversation, even with one or two people, about great licensed manga, manga from the 60s and manga history, let me know.
I went back to ADTRW after years of SA inactivity, but the vast majority of activity on that board is casuals talking about KLK and AoT. It's impossible to get along with them because goons.
You don't go to /moe/ for anime discussion. It's not there for that.
/moe/ is for shitposting in a fast rate.
This, the board level has actually been consistant, most people are forgetting the shithole /a/ used to be.
Instead of running off to another website why dont you stand and fight. Shitposting can be our strongest weapon when the time comes.
That redwood guy made two bait threads today, one about SD and another bashing "moeshit". Did he try to incite anons so he could ban them? No one cared so it died.
How to save /a/:
Step 1: Give everybody a unique permanent trip.
(Can't post without your trip)
Step 2: Introduce P2P (Pay to post) or $5 monthly subscriptions
Step 3:We are now saved.
READ THE FUCKING THREAD, the trip was different, it was a shitposter trying to get retards like you riled up.
SA dev pls go
For all the cancer that does manifest, there's been a notable decline in attention-whoring tripfags and inveterate tripfagging shitposters.
So become somethingawful?
Nice try, moot.
I checked foolz, kill me.
Go to a trap thread, and see how fast you get banned for telling them to go back to /y/.
He lurks those threads.
your idea of saving is fucked up.
>Introduce P2P (Pay to post) or $5 monthly subscriptions
I see what you're doing here, you fucking kike.
Got a dox?
What do you expect from a site where the majority of users are females and faggots?
And then those very same females and faggots bring their disgusting, cancerous culture and habits from tumblr onto /a/?
Tumblr already killed boards like /co/ and it is starting to kill /a/ as well.
Tumblr memes and tumblr linking are already being found on /a/ on a regular basis with no one calling them out on it.
Drawfags from tumblr are also on /a/ advertising their tumblr blogs with their watermarking and also being attention whores in general.
"Hurr durr hey guys, the tumblr drawfag aka me is back so what do you want me to draw and please ignore the fact I intend to derail half this thread since now every post onward from my appearance in this thread will be requests of me to draw something so I hope you guys understand since I'm sure the manga or anime you were discussing is less interesting than me and my tumblr blog of course"
This kind of scenario has happened several times already on /a/, especially in SnK threads.
Truly, women and faggots are the greatest online shitposters and cancer on the internet.
Tumblr is proof of this and women and faggots are bringing down /a/'s board quality.
Ahahahaha, retards got fucked real good. I think I like this Mod.
NiggerHitler stole your freedom.
>come back two hours later
>shitposting and bannings
everything went better than expected
Mods and janitors in /a/ support doxxing redwood? That must be why this thread stayed up so long until redwood woke up
