what's a war board without a conflict?

Neue Meta Thread Strelok Board owner 04/16/2022 (Sat) 07:21:46 ID: fc3ccc No.32204
Hello. The board was officially transferred a little less than 24 hours ago, if that wasn't obvious to anyone still. I am the BO now. I'm going to ignore anon if he discusses meta outside this thread and anon may be running afoul of the rules depending on context. I might not respond to anon anyways in-thread, but know that your post was at least read if posted here. First order of business is to make a seamless transition of power that isn't too jarring. Posts made before the hostile ta/k/eover are all pardoned by virtue of working under a different ruleset at the time of making. I can not in good faith purge someone who was unaware of wrongdoing. Allow me to review the rules. >0. Fuck around and find out. Encompasses all standard rules. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Act accordingly. Learn through bans if you get banned since I don't hold grudges and would prefer you learn. This rule is intentionally loose so that troublemakers can't play rule lawyer games and will be applied liberally. >1. This is a gentlemen's club not a shitting street. Posts will be expected to maintain a certain quality outside of the meta thread and /k/anteen/100rads. "Any community who gets their kicks acting like retards etc." as the saying goes. Wit/humor can be substituted for quality else expect the beatings to continue until morale improves should strelo/k/'s desire to pretend to be retarded kick in. Overlaps with rule 0 but separate to make a point. >2. Global rules apply. Do not wake up the globals. Do not wake up the globals or else I will be forced to abide by global rules. Make a reasonable post explaining your "DIY cluster munitions are for educational & recreational purposes only" if you want to discuss them. >3. Fun allowed. As implied in rule 1 exception, Strelok has limited rights, and this rule is a reminder that no rules are sacred if anon says a funny or engages in a content-generating discussion (example: the nazi discussion in the Ukraine thread that should have moved to the /k/anteen or history thread a while ago). >IDs temporarily enabled Anons are still expected to do most of their own moderation work. I retired from imageboard moderation with some 7ish years under my belt and intend to remain an old retired groundskeeper living in the manor's back shed. The ID question will be judged in two weeks, and then again on a monthly basis if believed to have had a positive effect on board quality. Ultimately I would like to remove it if anon can show himself capable of not needing it. tl;dr- Board is laissez-faire and I am the private security company/PMC keeping an eye on niggerfaggots acting unprofessionally or in bad faith. This is neither a democracy nor a dictatorship, and (You)s are the currency of choice with embezzlers & currency launderers getting heavy punishments. Succession I would like to give the board to someone else. I will groom anon into a proper Board Owner if he wants to take a shot at it and then turn the board over to him after a few months. I will make a proper account for handling this board in the mean time, but I am retired and mostly just acting on a whim. Volunteer applications will open up in a couple weeks after everything's settled down from the transition of power and anon has had a chance to see my moderation style. Board volunteers will be removed on a whim if I think they are a bad fit for the position. I have no qualms with lashing out at my own if I believe them to be letting the power get to their heads since moderation is the job of a man's man among men, and not that of a superior over a subordinate. We're all capable of fuck-ups from time to time. Email complaints to spamcumdump at protonmail (yes I am aware they are compromised ever since the French ruling several months ago). EDIT: Updating the Sticky Might as well put the sticky to good use. I intend to slowly turn it into a proper sticky so that "read the sticky" can be a proper response. If there are any links or guides you would like to see included in it, simply mention them here. Most of the information in the sticky should require clicking the "read more" button or opening the thread as a retard/journalist filter. Other stuff Banners, requests, etc. should go in this thread. If it's meta related post it here. So long as anon isn't actively and intentionally lowering the quality of the board I don't care if you advertise it within or outside the webring. A healthy board is a happy board. Invite the fudd boomers from their gun forums for all I care since I'll just ban them if they start pulling some "y-you can't say nigger on the interwebs!" shit if anon doesn't bully them to death first. A dose of different worldviews is good for anon from time to time. Remember as much when someone says something you don't like and then call him a niggerfaggot anyways. Anon will receive more leniency for complaining here than he will for causing a scene elsewhere. I'll be in your care. Tripcodes and namefaggotry should be for filtering purposes only (filterme, antichristfag, etc.) or under special, pre-approved circumstances (such as a quest thread or specific type of OC creation process). Namefags who develop a cult of personality or attach significance to it will be banned. Anime images are allowed and encouraged. As a rule of thumb, threads should reach page 3 or 800 posts before a new thread for the same topic is made. Advertisements must go in this thread or contextually they may be allowed in the /k/anteen. Board is for discussion of weapons, combat, military history, conflict news reporting, and outdoorsmanship. Make threads and posts in honor of this ideal.

>>38154 Avatarfagging and pointless namefagging are both shit on principle, but this avatarfagging does have the benefit of cute boys, so I guess it's at least better than that AntichristHater guy.

>>38218 Based /cm/ appreciator. But this isn't even avatarfagging, not really; that fucking retard just doesn't notice me when I'm *not* posting Links (of which, as stated before, I have a fucking ton, so of course they're going to get posted a lot). Hell, I even post waifus sometimes, because 2d cute is 2d cute in my book. Of course, I'll be posting a lot more Links now that I know it's pissing some idiot off.
>>38221 Are you just in the habit/culture of including a picture with almost every post so have heaps of your posts just end up with generics from the same niche interest of yours?

>>38241 In a word, yes. It seems somehow a waste to post without an image on a, you know, IMAGEboard. So if I haven't got a reaction image or something cogent to add, I just pull something from one of my folders. Usually something kawaii, but not always. And once I'm in one such folder, I tend to stick with it until I get bored of it out of, I dunno, laziness I guess. Like right now I'm in my DTA folder, which is a hodgepodge of Links, Hoonis, random /cm/ shit, and God only knows what else after all this time. Eventually, I'll get bored of that and start posting U-boats or old warbirds or some /out/ shit for a while. Then it might be waifu time for a while. Curiously, if history is any guide, no one will complain about these other streaks; there'll be no wild-eyed, spittle-faced accusations of breaking nonexistent rules. Not until I eventually go back to posting things that make them... uncomfortable. Then the "rules" will suddenly matter again.

>>38257 Policy up until this point is that there is no reason to enforce a ban on identityfaggotry because of ID filtering, however if /k/ can reach a general consensus (or at least a plurality/good philosophical argument for why they would fall under rule 1) then that can be changed. See >>38104 >If I go after one filterable namefag I have to go after them all which is a waste of time when they can be filtered and aren't doing active harm to the board. Examples of good identityfags as a counterbalance for why that greentext is the current policy: Filterme, German Hohol, SummaryAnon, VideoAnon, AntiChristHater (sometimes).

>>38269 >he doesn't even have a harem mfw >>38270 Rent free. First it was "muh avatarfagging". Then, having apparently read the actual rules for the first time ever (after I pointed them out to you, like the helpful and considerate fag I am), it suddenly became "making a name for myself" (without a... name? Okay, I guess). And now, it's "shitting up the board". But tell me, who's really shitting up the board here? And where will the goalposts move back to next if I don't back down (which I never do, incidentally)? The Aleutians?
>>38271 All I will say on this matter is do not misconstrue silent disdain as acceptance.

>>38288 >having the ability to simply ignore what one doesn't like Finally, an adult! I was beginning to worry.
Why do you bother playing these games with these passive aggressive attention whores? You don't respond they still do their damnedest to shit things up like the assholes they are. Tolerating this stupid shit is part of why 8chan went to shit and why lolberterianism in general is a failed ideology. They know what they're doing, you know what they're doing, the faggot vols know what they're doing, but the game is still played and the board suffers for it. I don't understand shooting yourself in the foot just to prove you like muh freeze peach to some fag who wants to ruin things and will readily use your own principles against you.
Unrelated Edit: To the anon who appealed the permaban, if you see a "blacklisted" permaban it means that ASN has been used to spam the board with advertisements from a blacklisted website in the past. ASN permabans will be lifted on a per appeal basis unless the appeals process is abused (in which case they will appear as "blacklisted 2" and expect your appeal to be denied). >>38378 First, thank you for your post. This thread is mainly for answering these kinds of questions, but other posts such as >>38126 are left up since if a meta thread were to ban dissent it would defeat the entire purpose of it existing. With that out of the way... >I don't understand shooting yourself in the foot just to prove you like muh freeze peach to some fag who wants to ruin things and will readily use your own principles against you. It's not a particularly ideologically driven reason if that is your main concern. I'm going to be brutally honest with you; At least 1/3rd of /k/'s unique IP addresses are just me using a VPN between my phone and my desktop. The webring isn't particularly active and I don't have much faith for its restoration. /k/ only has maybe 5-10 unique users at any given time. As I have mentioned in the past in >>32527 >I have always been of the opinion that imageboards are places for the free exchange of ideas and that ideas should stand on their own merits through argumentation and bullying whenever possible I don't particularly care about identityfagging since any newtype can quickly identify most of the anons and attach a pseudonym to them anyways. The fate of an identityfag is for the identity to eventually bite them in the ass when they do something stupid. If they had remained anonymous they would never have to worry about that and if they go back to being anonymous they will not have to worry about that. Identities are cancerous and against the spirit of anonymity, but they are not against the spirit of imageboards necessarily. Mentally I automatically filter out the name field when reading a post. In previous examples in other threads, I allowed meta discussion in regards to identityfags to remain up so as not to seem to have any particular bias in their favor, but that was apparently a bad faith maneuver. As pointed out by >>38268 I am open to criticism and working out a better system, but I also have one foot out the door as board ownership will be transferred at the end of August anyways so I don't want to set a new precedent that could become a hassle for the new Board Owner, as identityfags are prone to do when having an autistic fit over not getting their way. >They know what they're doing, you know what they're doing, the faggot vols know what they're doing Believe it or not they are easier to tard wrangle in this manner (especially when using a static IP) and they would just find a different way to "subvert the board" if I did start to ban them. Especially that one who is still asshurt that the site owner won't oust me for banning him. If they are using the threads as intended and contributing an argument or commentary to the thread, then I don't really care about them being a cock-sucking faggot (whether figurative in the case of LinkAnon or apparently literal in the case of the /christian/ vol who posts here). I would judge a post on the merits of whether it is on-topic to the thread rather than on how hard anon sucks cock and leave personal opinions about their cock-suckery to the filtering capabilities of the website and to the personal tastes of anon. That was one of the main reasons IDs were enabled in the first place and why forced anonymity isn't active. I do hold identityfags to a higher standard and if they do go off-topic or break the rules they will be dealt with more harshly so report them if they are doing so. I'd like to reinforce the point that if they are going to identityfag they must take the bad attention/responsibilities of doing so with the "good" attention of being an identityfag and making their faggotry known to others. I have admittedly been too lax in this regard and will go about cleaning the threads up while being stricter in the future. Especially in regards to meta discussion outside this thread. tl;dr since that's a wall of text: >Making sure it's a level playing field and everyone is playing the same game with the same rules is moderation's responsibilities >Filtering people being faggots is anon's responsibility and why we have IDs >Identityfags will be treated more harshly should they choose to violate the rules knowingly or unknowingly because they are held to a higher standard due to attaching an identity to their posts >Further metaposting about this outside of meta/100rads will be met with extreme prejudice >The board has too few users as it is to be going around purging faggots for mild shittery >I don't want to set new precedents right before a new BO comes in since it would create unnecessary drama for him >If there is a general consensus with a philosophical justification/"legal precedent" behind it that isn't a purge and satisfies most parties, then I'm open to suggestions I'll go through and do some late-summer cleaning to get back to that common law premise I set out to accomplish back in April. EDIT: Did some mild cleaning to get the point across. Rule 1 will be enforced more heavily this month in regards to off-topic and the like to show a good faith effort to maintain a minimum standard of quality.

>>38382 >Especially that one who is still asshurt that the site owner won't oust me for banning him. lol, story tiem? >The webring isn't particularly active and I don't have much faith for its restoration. I honestly think imageboards in general are on their way out. Kinda sucks; I wonder if this is what it would be like to be alive during heat death. I honest to God didn't intend to cause this teacup tempest, BTW. I had kind of assumed that anyone who'd managed to find this place would have the mental acuity/psychological wherewithal to simply filter me if he didn't like my posts. Looks like I was wrong. It *is* kinda funny, though, NGL.
>>38384 >Story time? Not really. Start here: >>>/meta/15544 Currently here: >>>/meta/15624
>>38382 That post wasn't entirely directed at you I was mostly talking to retards who keep giving these fags attention. I don't expect mass banning and deleting because some idiot can't simply use the filter or hell just his fucking scroll wheel. If you see the same gay anime characters multiple times in a thread then one should have the brain power to say to himself "ah I guess this guy is a nigger" and disregard and move on especially if whatever argument the avatarcuck is involved in is just going in circles every time you look at it. I know I'm wasting my time trying to convince turbospergs to stop obsessing over winning internet arguments with disingenuous cunts but I've gotta vent.

>Looks like a bot Agreed. If anon wasn't he should consider that he's bringing down the overall quality of the board when making vague attacks and should be more concise or witty. Deleted. >Terrible post Not completely terrible in its own right, but given the influx of rapefugees due to Taiwan happenings and that this anon knows better, I issued a rule 1 warning ban. >Continued Chinkposting in the Russia thread A WWIII general was made to clear up this misunderstanding. Dismissed unless the chinkposting in the Ukraine thread continues. >shitposting/derailing Anons are allowed to slapfight with one another. I'm not here to make them be nice, just to keep them on-topic when it's gotten out of hand. Thread is past the bump limit so it's not a big deal, but I'll issue warning bans for rule 1 for off-topic/derailing if it continues for more than a handful of replies in the future or gets brought back up again in-thread. Dismissed. Use the filter option. Rule 3 technically applies in this instance as a set of protections since neither anon was particularly serious. On second thought it was kind of autistic so I just deleted the conversation to preserve both anons' honor. Polite sage. Refreshing the page due to post lock bug messed up the sage.

>>38662 Only OPs can be merged.
I like the shotaposting and will also shotapost in addition to inviting other friends to shotapost here. While remaining on topic, of course.
>>38678 just manually make all the posts again lol
>>38645 That seems fair. I'll admit, I was stirring the pot with that post. As for slapfights, usually those are fine, but it was getting spergy as you said.
>>38645 Only that last post got reported huh? That ID wasn't even the one that started the sperging.

>>37053 >>37026 Forgot the best Canada.

I have kept an eye on the situation with /shelter/ and I would rather remain neutral at this time, however the situation appears to be untenable. With that in mind I would offer up sanctuary should the need arise during my tenure until the end of August.

Okay, so apparently we've found the line, I guess. I never saw a ban message, so I'm only just now becoming aware of this. I'll try to play nice(er) in the future. I'm guessing it was the "deliberately flaunting my provocation of Anons" aspect of that post that pissed you off; if accurate, I'll try to tone it down going forward. >>38804 lulz, sorry I missed this
>>38804 Damn, I must be really out of the loop. Unless the Austrian BO was a Chinese immigrant that spoke perfect English. Regardless I wish him all the best in his noble ambitions.

>call out an off topic thread >get banned because "you're being a hothead" Well I guess that shows that the current BO is no better than the glownigger that was booted out instantly and tries to DDoS the site in a fluster of butthurt.
>>38895 Generally when unbanned in good faith, the correct solution is not to immediately go back into the thread to start shit and to instead read to find out what you did wrong.
If you go into the /christian/ thread to start meta shit again the appeal is getting denied. You can discuss it here. If you're over a VPN use a different node.
>week-long ban for "fuck around and find out" Is there at least some log that tells me what post was supposedly "fucking around" and got me banned? Because I don't have a damn clue.
>>38904 Ah, beat me to it. I never went into the Christan thread. Never even opened it, never mind posted. You banned the wrong guy. And that's not a VPN.
>>38906 >You banned the wrong guy The captcha ID said otherwise. You get a unique ID when you fill out the captcha.
>>38907 Either you messed up or the IDs did, because I never posted there.
>>38905 >Is there at least some log Yes https://anon.cafe/logs.js?boardUri=k
>>38910 So the ban is actually tied to a post like other board software, even though ban message doesn't show it. I guess it must be an ID issue rather than mod error. Or maybe it's some level of range ban rather than the specific IP?
>>38911 While a range ban was issued it was most definitely tied to the bypass ID. Either way tell your roommate to stop metaposting outside of meta or go report it in the bugs thread on >>>/meta/
