Yeah, one crazy on their forums demanded the mods warn them for a one-off übermench-joke on an old credits page and delete the offending page. Then, when the mods talked about agreeing to do so, tried to change the story to /u/'s logo being problematic and thus demanding all pages with it also be deleted.

Mods played favorites during discussions and in the end /u/ pulled all their stuff, leaving dynasty's forums whining about /u/ being hateful and overreacting.

The extent to which shitposting is becoming a defining aspect of chan culture is absolutely disastrous, and it's these peoples' fault entirely. It has standardized low effort posting in every aspect. I'm not sure what happened to 4chan's user base since the first exodus, but I think it involves a huge influx of redditors tryharding their way into fitting in with the "cool kids" after all the media attention the site has received. There are a lot of mixed ideas about the role of the meidos, but they've done good work preventing this sort of bullshit from infecting our board.

A substantial ammount of newfags don't even see shitposting as a bad thing.

They think shitposting is the thing you're supposed to do on an image board.

It has to do with all the /b/ shitposting over the years and people knowing 4chan as "that edgy troll site" you get absolute scum from other normalfag places coming here just to shitpost instead of actually promoting discussion.

>They started coming to 8chan 2 months ago

But why did they suddenly start coming two months ago? I can't think of any reason why there was a sudden increase because there wasn't anything that would cause a mass migration of newfags except for the wedding, but that was nearly half a year ago, and not two months.

Maybe it has to do with Hiro injecting malware into halfchan. How long ago was it when it was discovered?


 No.414507

>>414505

Cuckchan was temporarily able to post images and Hiroshima removed Legacy Capcha for a Google Botnet Captcha, he's also lately been cracking down on some more shitpost heavy users that then come to 8chan like the pests they are.


 No.414510

>>414505

It might not even have anything to do with /a/. They just come over here because of stuff mentioned in >>414487 or >>414507

to some other board like /v/ or /pol/ or /whatever/, and then spread from there to virtually every other board they can get their grubby hands on and spread the cancer. So some stuff happening on cuckchan's /mlp/ might trigger crossboard shitposting on /k/ or /a/ or /u/.

Another transmission vector is the Attention Hungry Games. Virtually every peaceful, comfy little low traffic board that I knew of suddenly becomes a massive hub of crossboard shitposting halfchan rejects who can't literally string two sentences toghether that wouldn't put a literal retard to shame once it 'won' the games.


 No.414511

>>414510

Highly dependent on the board, but yeah, I tend to agree.

More traffic isn't necessarily a good thing.


 No.414513

>>414511

Exactly. A tightly moderated board like /a/, one with a tightly-knit, solid community of core posters, or a little-known board with a total of 6 posters who've been there since forever is less likely to be affected. But even those have taken a downturn.


 No.414514

Speaking of newfags, there have been some strange posts showing up on /loli/ in the last couple of days. They have weird usernames, and the email field's always filled out. Their grasp of English varies between each one, and they're all rather selfish; necrobumping and demanding pics or loli games. I've banned a couple, but the same names were coming back before their expiration. As much as we need more people there, this isn't the kind of trash I'd want to have around.

I suspect there might be something going on, but I'm not sure what.

I only actively use /a/, so I don't know much about the other boards.

But it's observable that the quality of /a/ temporarily drops at the start of each new season, which I assume is because of crossboarders.

When 8ch became known as the new big bad place of the internet, 4chan lost some of it's boogeyman status, so normalfags got curious, started carefully approaching and then flooded it once they learned it wasn't that bad and they could browse that safe space and get say they "browse the four channel".

Fast forward a bit, 8ch loses it's boogeyman status because the media shifted from 8chan itself into just gamergate, making braindead normalfags forget about it.

Then you get to a few months ago, two major events happened in half, image posting being blocked and the malware discovery. They needed another place to shitpost and to ask about it, so they went to the second most popular image board that they know and know that is safe: 8chan, and there you have it. They go there, see it's not as scary, start shitposting, users don't fucking bully them, they stay there, most likely still posting on reddit and half at the same time, and quality falls downhill.

Honestly, the malware thing was disgusting. They fucking flooded /tech/ (and also the dead board that is /g/ because retards) with "is it safe?" threads. People told them to fuck off at least and they went full damage control "wow, I just wanted to ask a question, this is why I don't browse this shithole, I'm leaving now. I left. Okay. I'm not here anymore. By the way, is it safe?".

Those retards literally posted "I don't care if it's just adware, I just don't want viruses". It really shows the quality of the place where the refugees come from.

I thought that the majority of them would keep posting on halfchan despite the malware like every other cultural and tech issue that popped up over the past four years like the braindead niggers they are. Can't say that I'm happy at all after hearing this.

>>414510

The problem with the attention hungry games is that it would have been perfectly fine to have something similar to it back in 2014 to mid 2015 when the majority of anons did not crosspost as it would have allowed smaller boards to get sustainable activity, which was a feature nearly everyone has been saying should be added for as long as I can remember. However nowadays when 8chan barely has a cohesive identity, the events >>414522 mentioned, and can be considered halfchan 2.0, the only thing it does is nearly destroy the small boards that have a population which is almost entirely oldfags. I fucking hate how Codemonkey is pandering to these people.

If anybody cares, here's Codemonkey's update on what happened from about an hour ago:

>The attack is still ongoing. Our team is now manning defensive stations on 24 hour shift to mitigate the attack's effects until it stops. I've seen a lot of DDOS attacks before, but this one was different from the others.

>If you are a netsec guy, the attack is essentially a fuzz attempt on our posting systems. Someone is looking for a vulnerability in 8chan. Usually fuzz attempts are slow and come in at a trickle to avoid detection. Today's attack strangely was a fuzz attempt in huge numbers and very rapid almost like a tsunami. I've never heard of a fuzz attack on a public service in such huge numbers. It just means that whoever is attacking is either desperate, or a child who doesn't know better. Children dont usually have access to hundreds of thousands of botnet computers though.

>We will continue holding down the fort and maintaining defensive positions to respond to any changes in the attacker's patterns. If the attack manages to take the site down again, please know that we have a team of about half a dozen people working tirelessly to get everything back online so everybody can continue posting.
