/AM/ONDO'S MEAT SALE Anonymous 02/15/2020 (Sat) 14:35:52 [Preview] No. 32845
Okay /aM/, I'll give you meat thread with a stench so potent it will bring dead to life and will be smelled by dogs scattered in the farthest reaches of the internets.

I've been thinking, maybe those upper case letters are a little too extreme after all.

If you feel there are some things that need to be changed or addressed this might be the right time.

Tell me what you're hopes and fears for /aM/ are, tell me what troubled you, what did you lack. Whines will not count for least-of-a-whiner leaderboard.

I think some things need to be restated, some perhaps ought to be said clearly for the first time and if we find a common ground then I believe we'll find a way.

heh, well it has worked before, for a time at least - that's one of the things I'd like to talk about later
still /am/ was a bit different back then, dudes didn't yet experience burnout and there was a common vision and a sense of purpose
so hopefully first we'll regroup and get things in order, then when foundations are reinforced we can grow again without having to fear we'd fall apart

I feel the initial gathering of /am/dudes with a unified vision back when the board started was made possible because of the environment there was during the "honeymoon" era of 8chan, when the site was like an anime school cultural festival and each board was like a different class preparing their stand and being excited to show the others what they had prepared
In order for /am/ to grow anew and healthy, Endchan must also grow, maybe.

Yea, that's a very acute way of illustrating that, and it pains even more that there was a very similar thing going in Endchan until that one 5D marketing move that cracked cultural core of the site. I tried to build some semblance of it grounds up with /librejp/ during my diplomatic mission there but I can't say to what success. Nevertheless not everyone from /librejp/ is gone, there's at least one drawfag that stayed and even likes to practice his English so not all hope is lost for Endchan in general. Moreover the fallout from those few years back slowly seems to expire and several cases got resolved in a way that makes it believable that the credit of trust which /am/ had placed on administration team is paying off which in turn allows me to do some slight shilling in good conscience.
It's also encouraging to think that if boards like /yuri/, /turul/ and /miku/ appear it must mean the site doesn't only exist in normalfag sphere of interest. It might be a turning point which is all the more reason to get our bearings.

Yes, I was also troubled about that nazi incident we had earlier. I really, really hope it was a one time thing cause I'm not exactly in the mood for another thick headed, obstinate cunt straight after we've dealt with the previous one. It's ironic how nazis call for separation of peoples and yet don't feel any remorse for forcing themselves on others.

Even in our recent state we've had something like 5 regulars (just spread over longer time), perhaps it's one less since that new years death thread. Counting not so regular/outspoken even in 2019 we could get up to 15 dudes. I don't expect everyone that ever liked /aM/ to just come here the first day after posting this thread or whatever but there are at least 3 of us back already. You must've come with some ideas why things might've went wrong and let me tell you nothing will improve if we can't work this out. I have my own idea but I don't want to just beat it into your heads.
Come on, if you don't want this to end yet talk to me /aM/.

That is a good point. It does seem less active even by our standards. My first thought would be trying to have some type of serious discussion with slightly less shitposting but that sounds against our nature. Perhaps having some special threads. I've seen boards with only small amount of people thrive before but it does take work. Looking around locally that at least that I'd first think of in terms of this size don't seem to be in the best shape either. Gamerrgate board used to have a small circle jerk that stayed but it got quieter over the years, finally was nuked by an old poster who didn't want shit he did there eariler to come out. And then there is /horror/ which also seems to be slowing down as of late. The only other model that leaves is our local /pone/ board. It has it's own culture, memes and Oc despite being microscopic. But to look there for a model of success seems un/AM/ doesn't it? Truth be told I don't know what. As long as somebody is shitposting it's not ded, but it feels like this place needs something more.

People who think imageboards are for serious discussions usually aren't big into fun. A popular opinion around /aM/ was that those people would just leave if they didn't like how things were but by now you should've seen enough examples how that works in real life.
However there are also bullshit discussions about pointless topics which can catapult into some fun consequences. If you want example of what I'm talking about take a trip to kissu. Between each elaborate shitpost thread there is padding of bullshit discussions. For me problem is that, being introvert, I cannot replicate those.
There are also running threads like 'me in the right', 'throw me a bone dude', 'today's lucky item'. Some couldn't be posted indefinitely without loosing their charm but seeing so many disappear I fear we lost the dude that was responsible for providing them. What is more I attempted a 'me somewhere' type thread sometime earlier and no one participated pointing to a bigger problem.
Why did /aM/ become such a chore, an uphill battle if you will? I, most likely, don't have it all figured out, you might yet provide a crucial insight needed for a lasting solution.

If you don't want to talk then at least listen but don't roll over your eyes if I end up saying something obvious. I need to establish a context.
So boards like /aM/ are basically sorta turn-based multiplayer improvisational comedy. We're like kids in a playground toying with bulding blocks. We don't see each other but each time you visit the playground the structures built so far are a little different. It's exciting to see how what you've built or added gets expanded upon and if it works out as if someone else read your mind or better yet exceeded your expectations then the fun becomes intoxicating.
Imagine one day there's this new kid on the block. He's not doing too well but you dismiss that because it would be ridiculous to expect anyone to understand the intricacies of toying with building blocks straight away, nuff said. He's building misfit structures that spoil the composition, adds pieces to existing ones that cannot be expanded upon less you'd have the whole thing fall apart and straight up destroys some of them. You try to reach him somehow by offering him building challenges that would simultaneously serve as tutorials hoping he gets it but nothing gets through to him. It's almost like he never wanted to have fun to begin with and is screwing your playground on purpose. Imagine that continues for 2 bloody years.

Organisms have two basic modes of functioning: safe and defensive. If environment is accessible, rich in sustenance and there are no present threats organisms will grow, replenish and flourish. When under a threat living beings enter the defensive mode shutting down every mechanism that doesn't immediately help in their current situation and that includes immunologic response, tissue regeneration, digestion and advanced thought processes (worth to note is that creativity is one of these). It's working off limited resources, like a fortified city put under a siege that closes itself off and conscripts its dwellers as militia. It's funny to think that this mechanism in general sense works from cellular level to entire societies.
When we're talking about humans and communities, especially one like ours which is separated from the physical, the environment is emotional in nature.

There are two ways to get shitpost flowing. One of them - raw dudepower, highly volatile until it gets to 4chan levels of user count when replacement rate is higher than desertion rate, is unavailable to /aM/ at this stage so no point considering it.
Second is synergetic shitpost attunement amplification. Allow me to explain: when you have several dudes on a similar shitpost frequency their shitpost will add together in a process called constructive shitpost interference. In contrast when someone of wildly different shitpost frequency starts emitting the overall shitpost might even entirely cancel itself out leaving a barren board in what's called a destructive shitpost interference. I think it's time to reevaluate our situation and priorities.
I wish I had the time to wait till I can find a scene in some amine that I could then use to wrap my ideas into to make it at least slightly entertaining but I don't know when we'd come together again if not after something the site disappearing for a week or so.

Gonna take me some time to read all of it but after reading the conclusion, last couple paragraphs, it doesn't even go against what I'm thinking about that much (but I might be loosing some context not having read the entirety).
Facts remain however, /aM/ has declined. There was 'evil' that caused it to produce fun out of it and there was evil that went way past the tolerance threshold of almost(?) everyone. We've lost some good dudes, dudes that were responsible for a significant part of /aM/'s worth. No... dudes that were a significant part of /aM/. That's why I'm talking about reevaluating our priorities and what follows is adjusting the operation model to suit them. Is /aM/ an ideological vehicle for betterment of mankind or a place to have fun?

On one hand that sounds like a slippery slope. Allowing bad posts to stick around so they can potentially lead to good posts is part of the enshitpostened philosophy. On the other hand, unfunny political posting is killing EVERY imageboard in existence, it should be banned from the internet as a whole.

I haven't thought about deleting posts yet.
Anyway the problem lies in tendency, not in seldom occurrence. So let's say /pol/ decides to come in and post couple threads culminating with a long paragraph about how Hitler is the coolest guy ever, let's say he gets banned, the thread remains then someone switches couple words and makes a pasta out of it or something. The threat of tendency gets nullified and /AM/ is left with a new toy. Ideally though I think we need couple months among ourselves to recuperate before regaining a feeling of security that allows for having fun that way.
And if you fear slippity sloppity we have two boards. I can leave one entirely untouched. Or we can stay in an unmoderated board and only move to a moderated one when we feel like the sense of fun is no longer there and wait for it to self destroy.
Oh /aM/, that hopelessly naive optimism was one of your most charming points, I don't want to take it away. I just want to give it some foundation in reality.

Yeah man, I'm sure that the board ground to a hold while you were posting so frequently that you slid every crosspost off the board, that makes perfect sense.

I don't understand that sentence but take a look at how many posts there were before site crashed (about 30th of January). I found only one /aM/igo during a week in bunker. Truly brimming with life.

Here's what happened: you didn't post

>Truly brimming with life.
Endchan is just a bad site. There are only (a handful of) absolute normalfags and the actual site itself is constantly going down or causing issues in some other way.
librejp was a much better board which absorbed a lot of the talent and went to the same place a lot of the better posters had already gone to (due to their external affiliations) because it's a good site with good users. There's a reason they're not on endchan anymore. You should have followed their example.
Like, it's up to you man, you can kill the board if you want. But nobody is going to post on a board with an administrative burden. That's gay as fuck, and not in a way that's cute or erotic or interesting, it's just tedious. You're the thing you hate.
How do you think you're going to cause activity to appear by banning users? The worst thing someone can do is not contribute. No post is a bad post, some posts just don't contain any useful content. The second you start banning people you'll lose, for example, all torposters. At least two of the most contributing dudes were torposters.
I really feel like this is a plot to trick me into whining, because there's no way you could think this is a good idea.

tbh I completely forgot about 2huchan my bad.

as far the larger posting dilemma, I just post what I want when I'm watchin anime. don't see much need to think too much into it.
when I was watchan gundam and that was all the reaction images I was using i just figured i'd dump in a thread.
with the /am/ is ded finished xmas thread i think some people just need to realize the image board user base is getting older, more of us have jobs, and/or responsibilities, so as one person goes and a board seems less responsive that enforces the idea that the board is dead/dying and things slow down greatly from there. The gods are watching over you guys. You're incredible. You're amazing. Seriously, you're a real inspiration. We're right behind you, supporting you 100%, from the sidelines.

Silly dude. That is a symptom not a cause.
Why did I and almost all of me stopped posting?

>actual site itself is constantly going down or causing issues in some other way.
That's part of the problem but it wasn't big enough of a problem for /aM/ to move. Couple months before server breakdown everything worked quite well but /aM/ slowed down regardless.
>You should have followed their example.
I shouldn't and I didn't because no one knew who held sportschan /am/ and despite promising ban will be made public they never did that.
>But nobody is going to post on a board with an administrative burden.
On the contrary. Majority of /aM/ stayed at /am/ during split when Nito backpedaled a bit and not that many dudes were raising their voices against what he was doing together with me in the first place. Nito was an outsider without feeling for /am/'s needs. If administration fills those needs it's not a burden.
>How do you think you're going to cause activity to appear by banning users?
It's not supposed to. It's only function is preserving environment conducive of fun.
>The worst thing someone can do is not contribute.
>No post is a bad post, some posts just don't contain any useful content.
I tried believing in that. Then I thought maybe it isn't working just for me because I'm oversensitive or some shit. Then one dude said he won't be around anymore and asked for archives of /am/ because he wanted to find one thread he was nostalgic about. I asked what was that thread. I never got an answer.
Then I started paying attention and noticed several posting styles missing. I asked if anything was wrong in 'we're going to post pictures our completed shitposts' thread hoping that a look at what we've achieved so far will raise morale if it wasn't only me. And it wasn't only me. Then next one said he's leaving. I hope we've prevented that at that time. For a while the dark shadow wasn't there and dudes felt like they were among their /aM/igos again but it didn't last. Then I had a bit of a sage cabal talk with another dude. You probably missed that. I tried cheering him up but ultimately it failed as I think he was the one who posted that gravestone goodbye since there lied that 1 wewf I paid for a shitpost string that never came to be. My private experiment with freeposting is over. I thought those that raved loudest about it knew something that I didn't so I took the bait but it doesn't work and I explained why in three walls of text somewhere in the middle of this thread.
A child will use every occasion to get away from a house where parents argue all the time. People are very preferential about their company and will move away from people they dislike, unless we're talking about some pathological cases at least. /intl/'s dogmas are false because they ignored psychology involved in formation of communities.

>you'll lose, for example, all torposters.
I asume you talking about how torposters seem to have the same IP. Hmm, that is a bit of a pickle. Let's see...

true except not all are kicking sand. There is a glass palaces made with forged bits of those glass like seashells forged in a tiki foundry and the glass palace is not a sand castle. But an idea that can not be swayed by the ebbs and flows of idealism.

I see. Indeed palaces of glass, eluding simple notions of transient ideals, might suffer misapprehension. However by the sheer virtue of their complexity one would never be troubled by fear such that the beach one day would become glassworks display.

So we've at least partially got together again and had fun but that will not last because we're not surrounded by like minded people.
Do you have any way to regulate malignant growth that actually works /AM/?
I've tried couple things but success rate is low and they rely on allowing damage to be done in the first place which is somewhat counterproductive when community is in need of recuperation.
One more way I could imagine would require quick action (cannot be allowed to take roots), strong coordination (yours wasn't that good in the past) and closed off community (won't work with overboard).

The missing 5th dewd here. I just browse kissu /qa/ now to be honest, it hits the 2D/Random spot and has good posters and respectable traffic. I recommend all /AM/ posters to integrate into their culture. I think /AM/ was too much a product of its times, of when we dreamed 8chan would be bigger than 4chan ever was, and /intl/ was at its peak, cementing freedomposting as a viable alternative to rulecucking. What about now? Endchan is a dead end board, it's literally in the name and motto. Creativity has basically dried up. It's like trying to bring a dead dog back to life.

Take what you've learned from /AM/ and apply it to other internet communities. More importantly, study the basics of content creation so one day you can make the internet and even imageboard's a better place. The world could always use more drawfags ready to take requests, or people good at photo manipulation, video editing or creating mashups.

Or you could all ignore me, call me a whiner and make a real change. If enough people got the word that /AM/ is an otaku culture board with a fun culture it could revive. But you would have to get your friends and their friends to post here. You'd have to create successful social media accounts on YouTube and Twitter and shill /AM/ to the degenerate weaboo masses, and ultimately hope the culture generated is as good or better than the old days.

You can say that Endchan is a dead end but has there ever been an alternative that wasn't outlived by it? (Sportschan commited a breach of trust and it's not exactly super /aM/ friendly environment)
What will you do when kissu's pissu puddle starts drying up? They're already making posts how difficult it is to advertise.

There isn't really an alternative. Kissu kind of ended up being the solid 2D/Random board that has it's own website not living on some IB where it's irrelevant to the owner like with 8chan and end, though. I'm only putting it out there because putting two similar communities together to form a new one makes more sense than letting them both dry up.

I think people have their own individual reasons to post less and our community has always been small to begin with. Personally, I am just too busy or tired to come up with funposts.

It was a strange land and moderation of the board was a huge question mark. I asked for ban list to be made public, they said it will. I checked for about two weeks daily and it wasn't.
Combine that with context of what their general sentiment towards /aM/ they displayed (last 1/5 of the thread starting with 'sad anime girl.png', I'd crop it but there were some fun times at the start so I'll just post it all). It was their site, their conditions and their '/am/'.

I suspect that you're the bogeyman you fear. Besides the 'offtopic' posters who are going about /am/ business as usual, there's been mostly just you literally whining about newfags not complying with your arbitrary rules in your screencap and this thread (and some whining about mods existing).
Endchan is a bad site which makes posting difficult and /AM/ has bad administration which makes it less likely to retain users. IMO there's no hope of growing a community on this site.

It's unrelated, but to address an earlier point
>A child will use every occasion to get away from a house where parents argue all the time. People are very preferential about their company and will move away from people they dislike, unless we're talking about some pathological cases at least. /intl/'s dogmas are false because they ignored psychology involved in formation of communities.
Completely wrong
Every individual might have some degree to which the hostility of their context bothers them. The only posters that matter (the posters that actually contribute to places like /am/ or /intl/ or produce OC literally anywhere else) pay no heed to their context. These are the only users you need to worry about not driving out, and they're also the only users you don't need to worry about driving out. The simple fact is that /intl/ is correct and that you, personally, don't fit in.
Since you're going to do nothing but whine anyway, it'd be nice if you could learn how to do a better job.

If it was mostly my own thoughts on the matter why didn't /AM/ move? This alone dismantles that part of your argument but I want you to understand.
Just to make it clear: this whining was not directed at people visiting /AM/ at that point but at dangers of loosing cultural identity when moving to a /sp/ focused site with /sp/ population and /sp/ ownership. Yea they were saying it sorta jokingly but that didn't change the fact that they wanted /spa/ not /am/ and there are some differences which they didn't seem to get which, again, is okay for guests but not for hosts.

>and /AM/ has bad administration
Genuinely curious. Elaborate.

>These are the only users you need to worry about not driving out, and they're also the only users you don't need to worry about driving out.
So you mean to tell /AM/ came to a grinding halt because of technical difficulties? Freedom wasn't restricted in any meaningful way. You don't leave a community you care for because of technical difficulties, you try get them to move to a different place and if smoothness of operation is the most important thing for them they follow, just like /sp/. Not a single person writing a goodbye post said 500-kun killed all the fun of posting on /AM/ for them. There was that one type of posting bringing technical issues again and again but that was it.

Take a look at these people displeased by the 'context' https://archive.is/oRVSF
By your way of thinking every one of them would be a whiner, misfit, non-OC-generating subuser. Yet I can see /aM/ in those posting styles trying to curb that 'context' every OC generating uberuser is supposed to be immune to. Unfortunately though I think I was a misfit in that I tried to make /am/ too much like /intl/ but what I saw in the process is that everyone has their limits.
People aren't going to exert themselves making advanced shitposts for communities they don't want to be a part of. It's as simple as that.

Wrong
If they don't actually stop you from posting, there's nothing a host can do to stop you keeping your culture. If there was any value to your culture, it'd overrun the space and convert the guests.

Something that you might recognize from intl but which now is everywhere is the idea of a migratory steppe culture or a herd which follows the grass. You descend upon a chan when the grazing is good and there's inspiration and clear skies, and leave when it's barren.
>Take a look at these people displeased by the 'context' https://archive.is/oRVSF

>People aren't going to exert themselves making advanced shitposts for communities they don't want to be a part of
As an aside: you've lost your way, /aM/ was never about advanced shitposts, just shitposts. Any elitism in this regard is counter to the whole point.
Regardless: people aren't going to exert themselves making advanced shitposts for communities. It's always an individual effort. All creative endeavors are born from inspiration and hammered out by an autistic soul. Nobody makes nice stuff because they want to contribute to a community. They might post nice stuff they've seen to influence a space, including stuff they've made. But mostly, they post nice stuff they've made because it's topical because it was inspired by something they saw on the board.

That's what the conversation was about I'll remind you.

As seen on the shining examples of 4chan and 8chan. Ever heard of organic growth? Now scale that to /aM/ levels of activity.

>All administration is bad administration
Well then you would have known that /AM/ didn't have any moderatory action taken since it's inception and that this point is moot as a reason for drop of activity which happened prior, before January 2020.

>Something that you might recognize from intl but which now is everywhere is the idea of a migratory steppe culture or a herd which follows the grass.
And yet /aM/ is not /intl/. The names look totally the same I know, and /am/ even taken some flak because of that in the past but, again, they are not the same. When /am/ moved from 8chan because of technical difficulties it moved to endchan as a board.

And despite personally having doubts about it I never tried to change it because I understood that it should promote activity and decrease whining. But then 2017, 2018 and 2019 passed. Tell me what happens when you keep whining on a board that tells you not to whine? When you have two incompatible elements grinding against each other one will eventually have to give. Everyone has their limits.
Take look at >>32951 when he says that something hit that 2D/Random spot while /AM/ doesn't do that anymore. When I first came to that site I've seen so many types of posts that used to frequent /aM/ that for a second I wondered if I wasn't thrown into alternate timeline where /am/ didn't get a Nito and there was never a revolt. This is the core of the problem not a goddamn 500 error.

>Nobody makes nice stuff because they want to contribute to a community.
but then you say
>But mostly, they post nice stuff they've made because it's topical because it was inspired by something they saw on the board.
Which is contributing to a community they at that moment find interest in.
If you find or think of some nice thing you want to share it with someone. That's a basic communal instinct or however you want to call it. That's how people seek to interact with others that share their hobbies/mindset unless they've been horribly hurt or suffer from mental illness.

Your valiant shilling attempt at kissu didn't get unnoticed dude but there are few problems.
They don't want absolute freedom and they have more lively environment where they already are. Worth remembering is that imageboards with free board creation have a totally screwed reputation because of what 8chan turned into and the fact the function itself reminds them of reddit. Most importantly however no one will come to a board that stands still.
I think I'm not only one that sorta moved there, they're pretty fun minus the whiners but if we couldn't get rid of them here nowhere is safe. They're a bit too strict but I'm content with not needing to fear when the next retard is going to spoil the fun for everyone. It's not without problems though. I don't wish them ill but their admin might be a timebomb. He doesn't bother with hashing IPs, he kinda stalks users which I can understand but pulling an info that someone is from America in a disagreement and generaly how irked he is by the USA are some very worrying symptoms.

Anyway showing signs of existence in appropriate threads in limited amounts is good but sadly I don't think we'll be able to siphon traffic from any already established 2D/random boards, at least not as we're now.
