This topic has been discussed a lot already but I guess it's ok>Why did a regular pornsite go to hell?
Maybe an influx of newpeople too big for a regular pornsite to integrate. Sort of like the eternal september
Some people say it was the elections, some it was project chanology
Perhaps it's just that more people got online
Apparently somewhere along the road everything became much dumber, more bait and spam centered
I (2018 newfag) really liked this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5CBhPDQDr4
even if I never really browsed /vg/
It seems like many users don't care for the topics or conversations or being original/having fun anymore, they just want to satisfy their need for human interaction in the quickest/easiest way possible and that's it>1. Forcing posts to be uploaded HTML documents could weed out exceptionally stupid people who cant computer
I doubt technological barriers haven't been tried before (actually I'd be interested to see such a place), anyway such a thing could be fine if not for being possibly annoying to do every time?
Maybe a 1 time trick upon entering would be best. Like a big black thing covering everything, and you have to remove it with an adblocker (it will have a unique ID to make it easy)>2. This brilliant device http://stupidfilter.org/main/index.php?n=Main.HomePage
Spam filters never really worked well for my emails. I always check the spam folder anyway because of false positives
I think moderation is better at solving that problem. Works great here. You just have to allow deleting low quality content, and ignore "muh free speech" fags>3. Forced lurking periods in times of large influxes of new users
That's interesting, but how would you go about it? Whitelist IP's that browse for a while? But that would mean that shutting off the wifi forces you to lurk for that period again. New locations, power outages, everything can force you back in the lurking period. I'm not sure how cool it would be
In any case as fascinating as I find these ideas I wouldn't experiment them on 22chan. It's already fine, and I think stability is important. But on an hypothetical experimental ib? Sure, why not
