It's been a long time coming but we're finally creating a quest board. We're going to give it some unique features to help quest authors and before we open the board to posting we want to give anons an opportunity to give some feedback on what we've come up with. We also have a basic set of rules that we'd like the people who are going to be using the board to critique.

/qst/ - Quests
  • Safe for work
  • Bump limit 1000
  • User IDs
  • Only OP can post images
  • OP can use basic text formatting (bold, italics, a handful of text colors)
  • Everyone gets dice

The point of limiting images to the OP is to make sure that people don't get distracted by reaction images, and to allow the OP more control over the setting and tone in the thread. The OP is the quest author, and if only they can post images then they have a greater ability to create a mood, an atmosphere for the story they are trying to tell. It also limits the potential for spamming and intentional derails by trolls. Same goes for limiting text formatting to quest authors. The point of italics, bold, and colored text is to give the quest author more options in how they present their story. Maybe they want to use italics for character dialog, maybe they want to use bold for labeling important items, or maybe they want to use colors to highlight key words. These features are being added for the benefit of the quest author, and not for funposting.
>>
Here are the basic rules we've come up with:
  1. This board is for author-driven collaborative storytelling (i.e. "quests"). All threads posted here should be part of a new or ongoing quest.
  2. The author controls the story of the quest. They can take suggestions from other posters, or not, at their sole discretion. If things don't go your way don't complain!
  3. All threads on this board should be created by the associated quest author. Please refrain from making meta-threads.
  4. Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention.

The result of rules 1 & 3 should be that every thread on /qst/ has a quest author as the OP, and therefore the author would have access to images and text formatting options that come with being the thread OP. If you create a thread on /qst/ without intending to run a quest then your thread is going to get deleted. Same goes for if you create a thread begging for a quest author to post more, or if you create a thread to talk about an ongoing quest, etc. All threads must be new or ongoing quests, period. Rule 2 is pretty self-explanatory: the quest author controls the story, period. Don't be an arse and try to flip the table just because the quest author didn't take your suggestion. Rule 4 is probably going to get a lot of criticism, but it's necessary. The main reason we took so long to make this board is that we didn't want to create a haven for erotic roleplay and erotic fan fiction. While we've given quest authors a lot of leeway on this on /tg/, we have had to intervene a few times in the past when quests turned into wank material. We're aiming for adventure, exploration, suspense, mystery, etc, and not erotica. If you want erotica try another venue. That's not to say that everything has to be G-rated; just that if as a quest author you're spending most of your time describing sex in graphic detail, then odds are a mod is going to warn you to "fade to black" instead.

We'd like to know what fa/tg/uys think about all this. We're open to suggestions/feedback/criticism/whatever.
>>
>Erotic roleplay is not permitted
Fuck, but I want smut-fags to leave. too.
>>
Didn't moot suggest a role-playing board years and years and years ago? He said he'd have an idea "by the weekend" or something, it never happened.

What about a general play-by-post role-playing, quest, and forum games board? Quests seem pretty specific and might not be big enough to fill ten pages on their own.
>>
>>46945926
So, what's the reason to make it safe for work?
>>
My IP address pretty regularly resets. It really helps when I samefag on other boards but it seems like it would leave a quest thread headless if I tried to start one.
>>
>>46945926
So no fanarts, drawfags, mixtapes, and users collaborating on plans and stuff for quests ever?

Got it.
>>
>EROTIC ROLEPLAY

we have to keep those degenerates from writing about holding their waifu's hands, also Id's are going to be a pain for questers who want their players to remain anonymous.
>>
>>46945926
>Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention.
CAN YOU SPECIFY THAT /d/ CAN HAVE THESE QUESTS THEN?
>>
>>46946028
I'm assuming /tg/ would be a launchpad? Seems like it would help quests but not really clean up /tg/.
>>
Aww, now you're giving the crybabies what they want. Oh well. This is just going to contribute to a smug sense of acomplishment and entitlement and I hope you stop listening to them in the future.
Well, to be constructive, User IDs should be thread specific, if that's not already your idea. Prolific players might start getting reputations and it will keep drama down if you can't tell who is who (Aside from the trip posting QM) from one thread to the next.
>>
>>46946025
>>46945926
Never mind, saw that you want to make it a kiddy corner where 12 years old can write their first naruto fanfic.
>>
>>46945911
>>46945926
As an anti-quest fag, thank god.

That said, "Only OP can post images" is not good. Questfags sometimes need diagrams to explain complex concepts in certain quests (usually the better ones that aren't shitty "A: Seduce waifu or B: Rape Waifu" choice quests.)

The explanation that you don't want it to be a haven for ERP fails, as textlewd is very possible, additionally they'll just link lewd images from imgur or something.

>While we've given quest authors a lot of leeway on this on /tg/, we have had to intervene a few times in the past when quests turned into wank material
The 500 Waifu quests say otherwise. Keep pictures.
>>
Letting participants post pictures could help - marking locations on a map and such. Other than that, fantastic news.
>>
>>46945911
This is a horrible Idea
>>
>>46945911
Limiting image posting to OP alone feels too restrictive desu. Spamming and funposting is liable to happen regardless whether it is accompanied by images or not when someone takes offence to the quest or its development, resulting in mod/janitor being alerted regardless, and preventing other participants from contributing pictures might only end up being an annoying restrictions on people who may genuinely have something to add to the story by posting a picture OP didn't think of.
>>
>>46945926
How about there being a "quest general" instead of an across the board ban for meta discussion? I think then you could have a place for people to ask for advice, talk about different quest systems, and ask when the next session for a quest will be.
>>
>>46945911
Well, this place isn't anonkun, and users like to draw up maps and other stuff to discuss tactics and strategy to get shit done in quests. Aside from budget and resource management.

How do you suppose we do that? Gonna ban imgur links and PDFs?
>>
>>46945926
>>46945911
Where does all the art by the quest readers go to? Have you actually been to /tg/?
>>
>>46945926
When will we learn what was the first kitties?
>>
>>46945911
>>46945926
I think allowing images is important. Maybe limit them in some other way so people won't spam them, but I think drawfags alone are enough to warrant allowing them.
>>
>>46945911
I think that the rules are way too strict, specially the part of only OP being allowed to post pictures and the erotic part. This is supposed to be a +18 place. Many stories have some part of sexual point, be it rape or just for the sake of plot convenience. This isn't fanfiction.net. Also many quest have maps that many anons collaborate or drawfags that contribute to the thread.
>>
>>46946089
Third-party site.

>>46946027
This shouldn't be an issue so long as you don't also block cookies.
>>
>>46945911
Please atleast read a couple of popular quests to see how they are run before using your God Powers to fuck things up for us plebians at the bottom
>>
>>46946125
Could make it so OP can chose to allow images or not, since they're getting special authority as the author anyway.
>>
>>46945926
>Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention.

Right, so we're staying on /tg/ then?
>>
>>46946079
This sounds good, a rolling sticky for meta maybe.
>>
When would it happen? Would quests that are currently active here, have to transition over?

Also while I understand the point of the OP being only able to post pics, I disagree with it, since contributions from players are often helpful and great highlights of quests. Like if it's a written quest because the OP isn't a great artist, what if a player wants to draw some stuff for it to contribute? Or even simpler, if they want to help out with something like maps, diagrams, or even just post fanart? Also of course, kind of hinders quests that have more than one person running it, or are multiplayer in nature and require multiple players to post pics.

Maybe make it that OP has an option to allow players to also post pics? Like it's an option they can check or uncheck when creating a thread?
>>
>>46945911
>Only OP can post images
wut, that's a terrible idea. Quest players always provide fan art, diagrams, strategies, etc. Discouraging that seems counter intuitive
>>
>>46945926
>Only OP can post images
This is the only part I disagree with.

Mostly because quests tend to get lots of fanart and such and by blocking those out, that means that nobody can post their fanart. Some quest runners like myself don't actually post images at all.
>>
>>46946143
That could be a good call.

Why?
I'd like some reasoning behind this. Plenty of quests have been explicitly lewd in the past and have quite literally been the most popular, if anything, wouldn't quest trends say that this board should be entirely NSFW?

Alternatively, I suppose you could introduce a tagging system such as the one on /f/, which is user-submitted to allow people to shift through the threads.
>>
>>46945911
yeah only op posting pictures will hurt a lot of quests. Where will evo threads go? they won't be able to work on /qst/ and they won't be on topic in /tg/ let alone people complaining that there still there.
>>
>>46945911
Pretty shitty idea. Too strict rules and it takes away something that is part of /tg/ nowadays. If people want their own site for questing they can fuck off to Anonkun
>>
>>46946136
>questfags
>plebians at the bottom
You're over half the board on average and you keep finding new ways to get your garbage past the filter. Cry more.
>>
So this kind of ruins archiving quests for new readers if we can't archive on suptg anymore.


Also quests don't take up enough board traffic to justify this, and they've been on /tg/ for almost a decade.

This is unnecessary in the extreme.
>>
>>46945911

No, it's bad. Anons often post images for multiple reasons, like fanart (which QMs love).

Excellent. Spoilers too, right?

No change, but a variety of new dice and modifiers to rolls would be welcome

Can't we have one meta-thread? As much shit as the general can be, it does have its good sides and helpful discussions. Sometimes.

But this will backfire spectacularly. Plenty of quest OC comes from players / followers. Character visualization, background, stuff like that. Also some player suggestions need to be drawn rather than written. 4chan is, in its core still an imageboard, taking the images away will make things worse.
Sure, there's still workarounds to that - post images on /tg/ or /trash/ and link them back to the thread but that is inconvenient.

Oh and for love of moot, spoilers, please give the board spoilers.

>Erotic roleplay is not permitted.
Figures, blue board and all. But where does that go? /soc/ ? Once we heed the voice of our overlord, might as well clarify that.

This is a good point, actually.
Archiving is going to be a bitch, possibly for a long time. It's already something of a problem with long-running quests. Getting into them after the first few threads requires going offsite to an archive. Now they won't be able to do that and anyone who didn't get in on the ground floor will have to go in blind or not at all.

The trouble is that for every image like those you describe, there are going to be 1000 meme and reaction images which completely ruin any kind of atmosphere that the quest author is trying to cultivate.

One possible solution would be to permit anyone to use the painter app from /i/ to post diagrams.
>>
>>46946217
Ehh, it would feel like somebody takes sport cars out of /o/ and makes a new board for them. /asp/ went to shit after /wwe/ Generals were kicked off from /sp/, only comfy board became shit.

I am probably too newfag as I am afraid that /tg/ would became even slower board with questfags leaving.

Threads dedicated to discussing the quest and developments created by the author are accepted I hope?
>We're aiming for adventure, exploration, suspense, mystery, etc
What does that "etc." mean? Is there only a specific kind of quest that will be accepted there? Because I recall one author getting banned because of "That isn't /tg/ enough". What will be "not /qst/ enough"?

The bad:
>Only OP can post images

I am not a questfag, and I do not like quests on /tg/. I've seen a lot of them over time, and this feedback is coming from someone who wants them to have a good place to go.

>SFW
Why? A lot of quests boil down to Waifu Harem, /tg/ has a history of being semi-nsfw, and even the new management hasn't changed much of that.
You don't have to make it an orange board, but you should allow them to describe semi-lewd things so long as it's not 100% ERP. They fucking LOVE their shipping in some quest communities, and if you lock them out of it, they will be upset.

>Bump limit 1k
This is only good.

>User IDs
Good.

>Only OP can post images
Are you dense? Are you retarded or something? This is an imageboard and we make good use of our medium. Users upload images, including reaction images. Make spamming images a bannable offense, or include an increasing /r9k/ style timer for posting images. Post one, the next has a 30 second wait. Post another, it's a 2 minute wait. Another, 5 minutes. This resets every day or so. That way, there's no image spam in big threads, but when users want or need to post relevant images, they can.

>OP gets basic formatting
Great, that is good for them.

>Dice for all
Bueno. Excellente. This is good too.

>"The point of limiting images to the OP is to make sure that people don't get distracted by reaction images, and to allow the OP more control over the setting and tone in the thread."
Reaction images are only a distraction if things are shit, or if a troll is determined. If a troll is determined, you can't stop them short of a ban. They'll use big posts, or image-based text, or whatever.
As for controlling the tone? Frankly, users sometimes NEED a break. I have run live-action horror LARP events that take place over three days. When things get really grim, sometimes everyone will crack up over something funny and take 30 seconds out of character because, as a person, they need a break from the bleakness.

Please no. I understand the reasoning, but going to a 3rd party site in order to post fanart or diagrams is inconvenient.

Can there be an exception made for a rolling "advice sticky" that occasionally has the OP refreshed with new material?

General questions:
- Can there be a discouragement of "post ending in X decides what happens?"
- Will quests be forced off of /tg/ after a grace period or will quests continue to be permitted on /tg/? I know you can move threads now, but 3rd party archives (suptg mostly) will need to update or make some other kind of call on what will happen to old quest threads that are effectively required reading for participation.

Quest atmosphere is made by collaborative effort of QM and the players. Memes are made by trolls, players have no reason to troll their own quests.

>they've been on /tg/ for almost a decade.

A pretty good point desu. While I think quests as they are on /tg/ currently are a problem, I don't think they should go away completely and be sent to their own board. Some of the best /tg/ threads of all time, have been quests.

Although in my opinion at least, I wouldn't mind seeing written quests go. I guess I've always been partial to drawn quests, maybe because they just don't go on for as long so they don't take up as much board space. How often does a drawn quest get to an "episode 100", compared with how many written quests have?
>>
>>46945926
These all sound terrible and you should quit your internet-job.
>>
Stupid, open question but I haven't followed the quests trend:

What is /tg/ for if we remove another popular topic from it?

I'm surprised that threads get pruned (archived, whatever) within a day now.

What topics are left? It seems like the rest of the board is generals and hypotheticals ("If you were an elf..." or whatever).

Can we go back to having specific threads? I don't understand why all D&D discussion has to be confined to the designated D&D General. There isn't a Quest General where all quests go.

But as >>46946071 points out, funposting is going to happen regardless.

Speaking as a QM, I'd like my players to have the ability to post images. That's my only real complaint, everything else seems cool.
>>
>>46946319
That's not really how it works, for the most part. One of the appeals of questing is that you're there with other players taking part. Reaction images don't really harm that at all.

It's rare that a quest's atmosphere is ruined by reaction images, and it's more common that a quest's atmosphere is *reinforced* by reaction images. Like when something goes down and an 'OH SHIT' reaction images pops up, that raises the tension.

On /tg/, no quest I saw had a problem with reaction images, and taking away fanart is a pure negative.
>>
>>46946465
What and ruining Archiving isn't a big deal?
>>
>>46946382
This. This new board will not be populated by only a subset of /tg/'s userbase. It will be populated by anyone who is curious enough to show up. The rules are being written to take into account the influx of users who have no knowledge of /tg/'s culture.

Maybe when the new board smell has vanished we can revisit image replies for everyone. But I don't think it's a good idea when the board is just getting established.

I still feel as though letting the OP decide could work. If they want a more serious tone, then banning images is fine. If they don't mind as much, they can open it up.

If people spam up the thread with memes and the QM decides they didn't like that, they can just disallow them next thread.

I'm not sure how feasible that would be to implement though.
>>
>>46946194
Archiving is going to be a big problem.
I could see sup/tg/ expanding its archiving over to the new board though.
If that doesn't work out, its best to keep quests on /tg/.

>>46945911
My suggestion on images is that the OP should have a choice to allow or deny others from posting images in their threads. Many quests rely on pictures posted by people other than the OP (MGNQ with their "voting closed" banners, MAQ and people proposing new spells, to name two)

>>46946391 cont

>>46946319 One possible solution would be to permit anyone to use the painter app from /i/ to post diagrams.
People can and will use it for shitposting if they want to.

>This board is for author-driven collaborative storytelling (i.e. "quests"). All threads posted here should be part of a new or ongoing quest.
On one hand, no shitposting. On the other, metathreads are important.

>The author controls the story of the quest. They can take suggestions from other posters, or not, at their sole discretion. If things don't go your way don't complain!
Legit. This is Rule Zero of GMing and necessary.

>All threads on this board should be created by the associated quest author. Please refrain from making meta-threads.
Meta-threads ARE important. We have a rolling metathread and it contains things. Require all non-quest threads to have a certain word such as META or DISCUSSION in the title, and you make it easy to filter them.

>Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention.
As long as people can skirt the boundaries and post occasional lewdness, it's OK. You let us have /wst/ for a long time, and frankly I liked having it around. This is 4chan for snacks' sake, we're never going to be SFW, even if the board is blue. Make it clear that if people push too far they'll be sanctioned, but let them have occasional waifu titty snuggling or there may be trouble from them.
>>
>>46946481
>Posting images is bad
How did you become Manager again? You're clearly unfit for the "job".
>>
>>46946481
I'm sorry Mod but this is an awful Idea on so many levels.


New threads won't magically replace Quests once they're gone. /tg/ will suffer from the lack of influx.

Also they've been here for eight fucking years, there is no point or reason to do this. /qst/ will die in a week.
>>
>>46946504
I don't think the sup/tg/ guy cares that much. He always struck me as pretty neutral on the topic and only kept quests around as a courtesy. Which I appreciate, but I don't know if he'd extend it to an entirely new board.
>>
>>46945911
>Bump limit 1000
HOLY MOTHER OF KEK
Do you want the board to have 1 months old abandoned threads with 200 posts in it?
The only quest that might hit 1000 posts in a session on a good day is Banished.
>>
>>46946504
sup/tg/ has no reason to, since the owner mostly hates quests.
>>
>>46946505

But this is exactly how some Japanese imageboards work. Including Futaba Channel before 4chan copied it.
>>
>>46946509
A sticky would just encourage people to do that.
They would want to rebel against the rules for the lulz or whatever
>>
>>46946492

>>46946492
>Please no, I've had to samefag in some quests to keep them alive long enough for it to grow a legit readerbase.

That would be less of a problem on a pure quest board because you're only competing with other quests, rather than quests + M:tG, D&D, elf slave wat do, etc - and everyone on the board is there to find quests, so there should be no shortage of potential readers. If your quest still can't survive in that scenario it's probably boring.

It's not? Just post the threads you want to see. Be the change you want!
>>
>>46946546
I think the idea is that you just go back to the previous thread if its still up. 1000 posts is enough to get anywhere from 8 to 2 sessions of most quests. I can think of a few that passed 1000 in a single thread with the normal bump limit, and it would actually help them too since they'd only start falling at the tail end.
>>
>>46946027
Hex?
>>
>>46945911
Man, you've missed the point of questing completely. I'm a QM on another site who used to dabble in /tg/, and I am confident in stating that whoever made those rules is either actively trying to kill questing or has literally never looked inside a quest thread before.
>>
>>46946556
Can you please respond to the actual questions which will majorly impact upon the board you're about to create?
>>
>>46946481
You really don't understand do you?

This is an imageboard, you are making a board that discourages the basic foundation of 4chan, do you really understand what you are implying here? Because at this point I doubt that you have really ever read a quest or even lurked 4chan, banning image posting because you are afraid of shitposting (which isn't common at all in quests) is retarded.
>>
>>46946550
>>46946556

Fair enough. Someone mentioned /soc/ ITT and I just visited there out of curiosity (never been). I like the sticky but I can see how it might be ignored.
>>
>>46946451
The larger a board's population, the faster topics move off the end of the board.

Generals are a response to growing board size, to keep things contained, to stop threads killing each other too fast, and to make it easier to find what you're after.

Think of it this way - generals are basically micro-boards that develop when a board gets too big. Quests have been massive for long enough that a split is maybe warranted.

That said, I dislike the /aco/ split. Good western art is a thing nowadays, unlike 2007-era deviantart shitscribbles, and /aco/ is full of everyone from /e/-level No Tits Please to /d/-tier "fuck me with a dick made of dicks while I shit, senpai"
>>
>>46946481
>>46946530
This is an excellent idea. If you can't handle it, leave the decision up to the OP to decide whether or not reaction images posted by his players will ruin the immersion or not.
>>
>>46945911
>Only OP can post images

This stops people from posting fanart, helpful images, and smug reaction images for/in collaboration with the GM.

Since everyone would IDs with the current system, maybe make it so the OP can designate if users/which users can post images on the thread? Maybe make it a control panel when making a thread on the board perhaps?
>>
>>46946481
Honestly, man, as a QM? I'd be pretty damn upset for my players not to have images. And I know plenty of others who will be too. Players contribute to a quest with their own content, be it writing, drawing, audiobooking (no, really). That's part of the participation aspect of the whole thing, man. You might have good intentions but you're putting a knife in part of what makes the format both great and unique unto itself.
>>
>>46946591
I think it's someone used to certain off-site questing who wants to allow that to move here. Hence why complaining about the QM and non-QM images are banned.
>>
>>46946481
You do realize /qst/ traffic is going to be dead after 2 weeks right?

Hm, will the board have a function that will only show posts by the quest master, or for them to tag posts as PLOT, and allow users to filter by that?
>>
The best way is to apply special CSS/JS to threads with "quest" in the title ON TG.
Also, delete anything that's reported as a quest without "quest" in the title.
No ban, just deletion. As quest authors will occasionally forget to fill the title field, it's happened enough times.

That's going to make a terrible circlejerk shit, I can smell the stink even before it exists.

Yeah, you really need to re-think this. Worst case your janitors have to do a bit of extra work for a while, who cares? Maybe you don't give a shit, but we kinda do, getting fanart and images is a big part of questing. Please allow images from everyone, not just OP.
>>
I just remembered one of the old arguments against this and I think it's relevant enough to bring it back up.
Quests that are relegated to their own board literally can't get new players incidentally. A lot less people are going to go to the designated quest board to look around than would happen to see a quest while on /tg/ looking for other things.
That might mean that quests get slow and circlejerky. More so than they already can get, that is.
>>
>>46946541
The bottom line is, quests will now be bannable on /tg/. That's what everyone who doesn't follow them wanted. For those people the new board will serve its purpose regardless whether it actually lives or not.
>>
>>46946481
And they'll all fuck off after a couple weeks when they get bored / realize how autistic questing is.
>>
>>46946629
Sure there is a way to make the board that way, but mods won't bother doing so.

Replying as a regular artist for various quests, not being able to post images is the worst of the proposed rules.

I enjoy regularly making content for the qm's I'm friends with, and one of my favorite things about 4chan is that I can in fact share and give fan art back to the community.

Furthermore, it's 4chan. Sharing ideas and thoughts through images is the lifeblood of the website. It's what makes it unique, special. I can't imagine the "4chan questing experience", so to speak, without being able to post and share images as well.

A 1000 reply bump limit also seems far too much. A majority of the quests I've seen will maybe hit 100-200 replies before they fall off the board. I can only think of major and massive quests like Kant-O-Celle or Maid Quest and the such ever hitting such a large post count.

I'm afraid that with a 1000 bump limit would just lead to the same quests clogging up the board for days on end. One of the appeals of questing is that everyday, *something* new is running, rather than the big names constantly up. Nor do I think enough quests are running at any one time that the old threads would be bumped off the board before they hit the bump limit.

Quests have been a constant source of OC and content for me on /tg/. It's going to be a shame to see them go.

I hope the mod team is willing to reconsider "only OP may post images rules".

Not naming names, but there have been patreon/paypal links in the past put up by QMs which lead to lower quality material being posted in the actual threads on /tg/.
>>
>>46946528
>>46946587

That makes sense but I have seen people link to /5eg/ or whatever when someone asks how to get started with D&D 5E or for some 5E advice.

Of course lurking more is something you should do on any message board, but there's nothing wrong with threads dedicated to specific questions (especially when you have 150+ "slots" for threads) rather than cramming seven discussions into one thread.

There was a point where if someone made some significant OC, they'd make a thread about it. And we should encourage that, now we literally have "homebrew generals".

And there are basically "Warhammer Wednesday" threads (they call them Generals now) on a board that was created BECAUSE OF Warhammer Wednesdays.

Point is, while we're having a good ol' meta thread, I don't understand why /tg/ is. Why is /tg/?

I guess the question is whether people would want a separate archive for /qst/ or if someone else wants to rise to that particular challenge.

I know there are full-board archives out there that cache EVERY thread. I could create a mirror database for /qst/ that just links over to those sites instead of storing locally. I'm running out of room, and archiving two boards' worth of material would be a bit of a stretch, but the database alone would be easy to create and maintain for everyone.

On a related note, I think /mlp/ is overrun with quests as well (or Choose Your Own Adventures as they call them). I don't know if /qst/ will lift Global Rule 15, or if /mlp/ is actually happy with the situation, but I figured it'd be worth mentioning.

Just make thread creation a little different than other boards, and allow the OP some options to choose from when creating a thread.
It's as easy as adding some boxes to tick, like

>Image posing - Y/N/cooldown
>Painter app - Y/N
Maybe add some sort of tool for final destination votes as well.

>>46946319
>ruin any kind of atmosphere that the quest author is trying to cultivate.

In re-reading, it sounds like you're intending quests, and this intended board to be a rather serious storytelling affair and artistic endeavor similar to the other art-based boards but about writing. There's nothing wrong with this, and there certainly are quests that fall under this distinction and would benefit from a board of this nature. There's definitely a large number of quests though, that are simply not in this style. Maybe they're just not that serious, or a large part of them is player input, even if it's just memes and reaction pics.

If you're trying to create a new board that cultivates that kind of serious storytelling and encourages creative play like that, I would definitely agree and be for it. I still feel though that in contrast to that, shorter and more lighthearted quests perhaps still be allowed on /tg/? Creating a new board for the more serious and longterm sort of quest would definitely cut down on the number of them on /tg/, and also not force those sorts of quests to share a board with the quicker and non-serious quests, of which there aren't that many such that /tg/ is or would be cluttered with them.

Overall I can understand the push for a new board to service the large number of serious, very long (multi thread), and most often written quests which to be fair do clutter /tg/ at times. That said, from what I've seen, quests are vastly different and varied such that it feels it would be a disservice to simply shove ALL of them to their own insular board. A serious quest board with few images, user IDs and 1000 post bump limit, would be great for the long written quests. It would be a disservice for short, simple, lighthearted or "one-off" quests however, and by including all of them under one board would worsen the board itself and the idea/goal it's trying to serve.

Oh, and regarding the suggested rules (not that my opinion holds any particular weight):

* Everyone should be allowed to post images. It's an imageboard, and fan art can elevate a regular thread to legendary status, not just quests.
* Offering more formatting for the OP is an excellent idea. Giving QMs even basic HTML tagging would be pretty cool.
* For out-of-the-blue suggestions, I was thinking a strawpoll-esque plugin for actual 'Choose Your Own Adventure' requests from participants could be handy, but that style really varies from QM to QM.

>>46946852
I don't think that the board will have enough traffic to sustain 10 pages of threads with a 1000 post bump limit.

That's 100 threads at any time that need a 1000 posts just to fall off. I can't think of any quests that would need that.

There's other forums that have quests, right?
touhou-project.com is one of them.
The population is small, but there's threads that are YEARS old still up on page ten, because even at a bump limit of 250, the site's slow pace means the threads don't hit bump limit and stay forever.

It means the same few big names stay up eternally, or in the occasional instance, one quest stays up on the board for weeks and clogs the place up, because not enough quests are running at any time for it to be bumped off.

From my experience, in the evenings (EST), there's 10-12 quest threads running at any time, which isn't fast enough to bump off all the old threads. Running once a week, QMs would be returning to their thread and keeping it on the board, week after week, until it falls off.
>>
>>46946852
1000 bump limit is highly against the session-based running schedules of QMs. It encourages the noncommittal format of freeform RPing or fanfics.

Coming back into the thread to post one or two things a week? That's bad for quest, or even story pacing.

Storing as JSON then formatting with CSS would be a good idea. Save space, and old threads can be updated to new CSS. Also I imagine it wouldn't be hard to rip data from old threads to the 4chan JSON formatting.

I can see your point. One thing I'd like to avoid is multiple installments of a single story on the catalog at a single time. If a particularly popular quest or a particularly prolific author starts posting, they could potentially take up a significant fraction of the board.

>All threads posted here should be part of a new or ongoing quest.
Even now this works badly. Managing timetables and players is hard. Even things like a general were only a half solution.

>Erotic roleplay is not permitted. Frequent explicit descriptions of sexual encounters by a quest author may result in mod intervention
Vague wordings will certainly not help with how things move forward, if you must do this.

>Rule 2 is pretty self-explanatory: the quest author controls the story, period. Don't be an arse and try to flip the table just because the quest author didn't take your suggestion
Limited precedent in quest moderation shows this won't be good enough and has a way high chance of being abused

>We're aiming for adventure, exploration, suspense, mystery, etc, and not erotica
I'm sorry, but the amount of material available won't be enough to cover the space given. It's barely a piece of /tg/, as it was minuscule before in other boards.

I'm sure you know how a new boards fills up by now. Other crossposters will have ample space to stake a claim, and it will likely go worse than /asp/.

I would rather you think this further, but you seem to have reached finality rather than planning here.

I bring up /mlp/ specifically because a lot of other boards have jettisoned quests onto /tg/. With a proper /qst/ board, you'll see /co/, /a/, and yes, /mlp/ wanting to try their hand at collective gaming. Even /trash/ has quests, though they're mostly sporadic and/or a joke.

>>46947050
I still download them as HTML. A thousand years ago, I decided this was the most appropriate way to completely preserve the target threads, after seeing other archive services kinda shit the bed. Granted, I also started sup/tg/ as an experiment that I didn't think would last more than a couple months, and yet here we are almost a decade later.

With the new 4chan APIs, I could rebuild the archive to use a much smaller footprint, though I'm still constrained on space for what I already have. Still, as mentioned, relying on third-party hosts for the thread archival while just maintaining a relational database so readers can track whole quests would work for the new board.

I'll have to think about it, either way. Are there any archive admins around that could weigh in on the new board, or how they feel about having a DB point at their sites? I don't make ad revenue off sup/tg/ and don't care if others do for hosting the pages.

This happens even on present day /tg/, unless you reduce the number of threads on the board, you can't really prevent it. When somebody ruins three times a week and somebody once a two weeks (if that) there will be disparity and overlaps.
>>
>>46947126
I think you could take it lower. Honestly, if a quest is getting that many posts in a single day, then starting up a new thread when the old one dies is easy enough.

There are other quests on this board that barely scrape 100 posts though. They'll be floating around for a long time, which could cause issues.

FUCKING THIS
>>
>>46947126
Yea that'd be pretty good.

No matter what you do there's still going to be threads fall under or over the number. sometimes you don't even get 100 posts in the smaller quests and sometimes the bigger ones are 2 1000+ post threads.
>>
>>46947126
Dude, they said it above already. 350-500 posts is the maximum tolerable limit for readers.

Also, with your come-and-go 700/1000 post bump limit, it encourages writers to be undisciplined in handling the story.

So imagine a writer whose 600 something quest thread rots on the board for a year because he got lazy and never shows up, or just posts once a week or once every two weeks.

That's not the kind of storytelling even _you_ want.

How many dead quests you think that board will collect?

User IDs are a very, very bad idea. It limits the QMs themselves and the creators of content. There are many QMs who changed names so they could run a new quest; sometimes it was due their first one failing, sometimes it was due too much trolling and shitposting, sometimes due losing all motivation for one but gaining inspiration for another.

Hell, orc warlod quest, one of our current medium to big quests, was that QM's thrid attempt into questing. His previous two quests died, until he hit gold with OWQ. Now he's a successful, famous QM with more than one quest active.
Please, think of the QMs.

Namefags please go.

User IDs is a weird idea. Would it make it sad that only a handful of anons are playing someone's quest? Yeah, though it has the opposite effect as well; a good amount of unique IDs would be great feedback. It'd also solve the samefag issue, I guess. I don't know how much User IDs solved /b/ and /pol/, but I've never been on those boards too much. Either way, people are going to inevitably namefag and tripfag. I'm moreorless skeptical about User IDs but I guess I'm not entirely opposed.

The bump limit is atrociously large as well. If it's to contain both quests and the discussion of it in one thread, it's good. I'd rather not have generals for quests either, to be quite frank. I'd probably make the bump limit smaller.

No, since there probably aren't enough quests to fill up the 150ish topics at a time. Basically anyone who runs regularly will by virtue of output take up a section of the board, since there isn't anything else pushing them off.

>User IDs are a very, very bad idea. It limits the QMs themselves and the creators of content. There are many QMs who changed names so they could run a new quest; sometimes it was due their first one failing, sometimes it was due too much trolling and shitposting, sometimes due losing all motivation for one but gaining inspiration for another.
Don't talk about stuff you don't understand. Used IDs are limited to threads.

I think you should allow the OP to auto-sage, close, or delete their own thread instead.

If that isn't possible, then I suggest 500.

I agree with this. This whole idea seems a bit premature and not well thought out.

I wonder understand the need for a specific quest board. There are not that many quests active on /tg/ to require it.

I make civ quests here most days.
This is an interesting idea, glad to see you will allow posters to use images, it gets stale if I'm the only one who can, I feel lonely in a way ;_:
I think 1000 bump limit is too much, 500 seems reasonable. I usually manage within 300 anyway, but this'll encourage the players to post freely and not worry, so that's good.
I make my sessions evening time here in Europe and they can last up to 8 hours. Sometimes the thread is still alive on the morning afterwards.
I would really like to be able to close my thread manually, I don't want to clog up the catalog, though it rarely happens for the previous thread to still be around by the next evening.
I started my threads on /pol/ originally and what I liked were that the userIDs made samefagging much, much harder. I will be happy to see thread-specific userIDs.
Maybe I can finally change the name of my quest, since we don't really live in the Tundra anymore.

You really should update it to use JSON. It uses an incredibly smaller amount of space, and the old threads, the really old ones, their formatting is fucked up anyway.
It could also make it easier to have the archive consolidate duplicate images. So you don't have 900 copies of smug-girl.png devouring precious server space.

How about an automatic autosage after a fixed time, maybe 48 hours? That way old threads won't hang around long after the quest author has stopped posting, but it still gives everyone long enough to comment on the quest.

This can be easily remedied if the mods actually had enough foresight to prepare for it. It would be rampant for a few days, yes, but then they get bored of it and things stabilize with the right moderation. Besides, if images are only limited to the OP then random horseposting would be kept to the designated horse quests, and anything posting outside of it could easily get hammered with GR3.

GR15 wouldn't even have to exist if you people could learn to just ignore, report, and move on with your day.

I'd just like to say thank you for getting archives so right.

Archiving EVERY post without a voting/approval system is one of the worst things to happen to 4chan. It ruins the ephemerality and anonymity of the site, whereas an archive that acts as a "best of" or a point of reference is the way to go.

As for quests, please just archive the good ones. Don't feel obliged to archive them all just because they're quests. Or to let them all be archived simply because quests are OC. A lot of them are shit.

The threads don't get pushed down because nobody posts and nobody makes threads, since it'll be a dead fucking board.

That's a pitiful amount of active posters.
>>
It's an interestign idea, and I'll give it a try.

But realistically, 300 is a fine post limit. There are maybe two who go beyond that, and that's largely because they don't announce their threads, they literally keep the thread alive so that the quest players know it's there.

And not allowing pastebins at all doesn't just hurt the smut aspect - a large number of QMs use pastebin for quest information, character sheets, side stories (smut or not), worldbuilding, etc. Allow pastebinning for smut, because otherwise you'll be worried about pastebins for smut sneaking in under the guise of worldbuilding.

Allowing reader images is a smart move.

Wouldn't you just end up with some people trying to run good serious quests, and having to share a board with people who just run shitty or low-effort "quests"? That's what it sounds like, if the idea is to open the gates so to speak, and try to open the access to the entire site and attract any and everyone. Increasing userbase is a nice goal to try to achieve, but you're trying to increase userbase on 4chan. People from /b/ or /s4s/ coming over and making "quests", or going into serious quests.

At least on /tg/, by default the userbase is in tune with the idea of quests and a mindset to make good ones and play as a good player. Plus, quests being part of /tg/ tradition so ostensibly there's a kind of standard people can follow or try to work by. Certainly there are shitty quests on /tg/ that clutter the board, but shouldn't the problem be to remove or separate those ones, rather than all of them including the good, quality ones and/or the ones that distinctly are or try to be /tg/-related? I'd hate to see something like a Space Marine Quest have to go, just so that a Harem Waifu Quest would have a place to go.

I know if I was a /tg/er or any other board denizen for that matter, say a /co/er, and I wanted to make a thread and went over to the /quest/ board and saw shit like memetastic /s4s/-esque or harem waifu quests, I'd not want to proceed any further. And imagine being someone who did try, and had to share space with that?

/f/ is the flashboard which has the same dropping system as proposed /qst/. Considering the content of a quest board including the same tagging system may be a good idea.

It's already a slow board. Most threads don't fall off until 24 hours, minimum, sometimes longer.

I could understand if there were traffic concerns, but there really isn't, and it's not like the game of Collaborative Make Shit Up isn't an old game to begin with.

The idea of "not having images" or "forcing people to identify" are annoying sideshows that can easily fall one way or another - because frankly, a writer can be identified by his writing style.

The only real reason to split boards is when there's enough interest - and traffic - to split it up into it's own thing. I don't think this is the case with questing.

have you literally ever read and been involved with a quest ever

because it sounds like the fucking answer is no

These are the fuckers you are listening and pandering to.

>>46947623
I'm not opposed to letting regular forum games join in with the quests, it'd at least make the board less dead.

I'd rather just not have such a board at all, though.

Read Shadow Quest, then maybe pick up some of the popular quests that are curtently running like Homeless mutant quest or banished quest.

>>46947623
The point I was trying to make here isn't just the name, what's in a name after all?

The point I'm making is make the board wider for all forum type games that are played on 4chan, not just quests.

Just quests has a hard time getting enough steam going for a full board. I know some of /tg/ have said "quests are overwhelming /tg/ for years" but they've really slowed down recently, there aren't that many of them. We don't want a dead board. Make the board more broad and allow games of any type so it board doesn't dry up.

It'll be good for the quests too, keep them moving.
>>
>>46947617
Correct, /pol/ defaults to Yotsuba and not Yotsuba B and yet it has the "no NSFW images" rule. As long as you don't flood the board with big black cocks as a pseudo Australian, I don't see why you can't type out a description of a big black cock.

>>46947802
I concede the point: If a board was created for "All kinds of image-board games, including questing" I think it may generate sufficient traffic as people create or re-invent the old games of chaining images together or playing around with that.

But that would necessitate not having identities or anything else of that nature; in fact, it'd be ideal to just have it like every other board.

Want to fix questing? Give /tg/ a better bump limit and so forth. Done. Questing has a home here, if a bit illajusted, and it pokes no holes in anyone. Leave it alone. It does not need another board. /tg/ is literally built on storytime there days, and quests are just another varient of it really.

If you go ahead with this new board, its going to need the sound of crickets for how populated its going to be.

>>46947786
please don't make a /quest/ board

/tg/ has enough space and enough traffic for quests to exist on it just fine

quest threads are by definition traditional games and despite what anti-questers say, there's an average of about 12 quest threads up at any given time in the entire catalogue

it isn't worth a new board and it doesn't need special rules to cater to it

in addition, as an /mlp/ user, where would its quests go? I'm gonna go ahead and bet they won't be allowed on /quest/
>>
So I think it deserves to be outright said if ALL quests from all boards will be shuffled into this new questing board.

Will there be /mlp/ quests next to /tg/ next to /a/ (if they still have any) and /aco/?
>>
>>46947786
As a long/time /tg/ user I feel that this change would not be needed.

While a handful of people complain about there being a quest overload on /tg/, this is very much not the case.
There's not nearly enough quest content to fill a whole board, especially with huge bump limits.

This sound like you;re only listening to a vocal minority of haters, which isn't something you should be doing.
Things are working fine as they are, there's no need to change this.
It's like the people trying to get all toku off /m/.
>>
>>46947800
It's 1000 posts a thread and they'll be 150 threads like any board.

/tg/ doesn't run off quests and more importantly, there aren't 150 quests being run right now, there are few and not all of them run constantly but at certain times.

A quests only board is too slow and lifeless. Mods can keep any forum game from wiping the whole thing easily.

Those silly little games that /b/, /pol/, and who knows who else play are way beyond quests in terms of poster amount and thread count. There probably could be a board just for them, but if it's the same one as quests, quests get muscled out by sheer weight of numbers. There have been less than 150 quests in a week. There have probably been 150 "forum games" just today.

/qst/ is utterly unnecessary. The whole "quest are drowning out other threads" argument doesn't work. There are NEVER more than 10% threads that are quests active. And I can't really call the other threads high quality either. They are usually System generals or some shitty "obtained elf waifu, what do?"

No offense but I think /tg/ is right on this one. Your fears about "trolls ruining a new board" is off base. /vg/ stabalized, /his/ stabalized, /aco/ stabalized, and as soon as people understood what they were about they left them alone. If you've ever been to /tg/ you'd know it's one of the most cohesive and dedicated board communities on 4chan, they are well behaved because the very nature of the hobby. This is the one board that freedom is rewarded by the TONS of new threads, OC, images and otherwise other great content. You don't need to shield a quest board because the very hobby itself already acts on that.

Tl;Dr "Fresh board trolling" won't make up even 5% of the posts/threads. If you are making this for /tg/, you need to understand the demographic and listen to what we have to say. Or else it's going to be BEYOND dead on arrival.

Well, I thought I'd put in my two cents as a QM.

Personally, I don't like the idea of a separate quest board in general. There's hardly the board saturation or numbers or activity to justify it. Quests are nowhere near as widespread as MLP or Pokemon, so how is setting them aside in their own board justified? Literally no QM I've known has ever clamored for this. There are plenty of other places to set up quests if the 4chan or /tg/ format doesn't suit you.

Bottom line, I believe that the Quest "Problem" is pure utter fantasy. I don't see why having quests detracts from /tg/. In fact, I was first attracted to /tg/ due to quests and I have a lot of readers who have told me they have gotten interested in /tg/ or /tg/ related topics solely because of participating in my quests. Removing quests from /tg/ is basically going to be a repeat of Nazimod, draining /tg/ to creative content and content creators. Fuck, the board STILL hasn't recovered from Nazimod (and probably never will).

Another concern I have is a bit more personal to me, but applies to all other current QMs. How are you going to handle archiving for currently running quests? Almost all QMs including me rely on suptg for archiving past threads, and even though I've seen offers from LL to accommodate /qst/, I'm still not sure how that will affect my two currently running quests. I really do not want to have to split the archives of my quests across two separate sites, or worse, being unable to archive my threads at all.

Third, if the /qst/ is a done deal and it gets implemented anyways, here's my input on the proposed rules:

(cont)
>>
>>46948020

>quests are better off on a tangentially related board because people looking for actual traditional games might stumble upon them, than they would be on a board dedicated to them
This is backwards as fuck. Things don't thrive in margins.
>>
Why no generals? Your going to have people new to the site wondering about stating their own quests. You need someplace for them to talk about it.
>>
>>46948020
They already answered: they just don't want to. Why? Because they don't want to.

And honestly, when you see Akun, I understand them.

As a /vg/ user, that boards tends towards shitposting like the universe tends towards entropy.

I never thought a quest board was a good idea, but if the mods insist on it I'd at least be willing to give it a try. Some of the ideas are good, some are pretty horrible, but none of my opinions on specific matters are any different from what everyone else has already said.

Then why create a new board at all if you're just going to enforce the same /tg/ blueboard rules?

>We're aiming for adventure, exploration, suspense, mystery, etc, and not erotica.

So... basically what we're already doing in /tg/?

>Only OP can post images

Now, I'm aware that you're already reconsidering this due to the already posted feedback, but this rule alone communicates to me that you don't quite understand the appeal of questing or have never participated in one yourself. Quests can live or die on audience participation, and it's really fun and gratifying to see readers freak out over surprise developments or post their own OC of the quest. My quests have gotten TONS of fanwork posted spontaneously by anonymous drawfags. Again, I can see that you've reconsidered your position, but it still makes me uneasy to know that /qst/ is being formed and run by people who have missed the point this badly.

To sum it up, I don't agree with the idea of /qst/ at all and find its existence absolutely unnecessary.

There is not enough quest traffic on /tg/ to justify it.

You're trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

Having some new features for OPs like post formatting would be nice but it's not nearly worth the trouble of splitting off quests into another board.

Depends on which quest and what fetishes it involves, but still, the point is that is shouldn't be about working around dumb, erratically enforced rules, it's about a new board getting new rules that don't need to mirror /tg/'s for no good reason.

>I guess link your smut on pastebins?
Links not being allowed implies such a practice would be frowned upon, and that doesn't solve the whole "nature of the quest" issue.

/quest/ is entirely unnecessary and, again, what will happen to the many quests on /mlp/ who in all likelihood won't be allowed on /quest/?

Well I'm not the Manager so I can't say for sure, but from the looks of things it's one of two reasons:

2) They want to take quests off /tg/ so the front page is finally just stuff they care about, and banning it would cause a riot so new board.

I'll put my two cents behind Merc and agree with him. This is a hell of a way to try and separate questing from /tg/, which just won't work.

I'm on board with a Quest board, it's just we don't NEED one right now or can even support one. We'd have to import a shitload of people from other boards and off-site to keep the And with the restrictive rule of keeping it safe for work, there's not much incentive to even run on it.

I would legitimately like some numbers on the board population's opinion for or against quests, if the mods have that level of information beyond IP addresses etc. Both sides think (and have thought) theirs is the majority, but the thing is this decision feels like it should have been made five years ago or not at all.

What was the process for making this decision? Did a new member come onto the administrative team and want to make some changes? Was it revisiting an old, previously tabled matter in light of the site changing over the years?

Full disclosure, I run a quest myself. And while I'm not a fan of this change, as long as LL keeps providing his incredibly helpful archival on the new board, there's really not much to do but abide by the rules and wait to see if the new board survives.

I think this guy has got the right idea, quests are a medium sized (at best) part of an already slow board. On top of that you're planning to put more restrictions on quests than already exist on /tg/.

>>46946944
Also, LL and sup/tg/ are probably the single most important thing for a quest boards survival. You need to be able to catch up on a quests and I don't think putting that all on the QMs is a good idea.

WHAT IF the OP had the ability to set if people can post pictures in his thread? That way if an OP wants a goofy funposting quest he can make one but serious quests can block shenanigans.
>>
>>46947622
>I know what they want
You clearly don't.
This is really bad idea. Just add the new formatting to quest threads here on /tg/ or something or leave it as is.
>>
The biggest issue I have with this is, that /tg/ is, in its nature, a high quality discourse board.

This is why there is a high standard for the roleplay that occurs on it, encouraging writefags to be really competent, encouraging additional stuff like drawfagging from the side of the writer, encouraging the creator to really work for his attention.

A quest board will simply have worse quests than /tg/ woud, because you will be unable to apply /tg/ culture on it.

This could go very well, as in the case of /jp/, where the board becomes so extremist in its secularity that it actually adds quality to it. It is a possible thing to happen, since the quest, as a roleplaying medium, can only be properly executed on 4chan, and you can build a culture around it. I'm just very scared that without /tg/'s watchful eye, the board will have seventy five Homestuck generals in it.

Some propositions:
1) As everyone has said, keep images for everyone.
2) Keep Dice. This will also keep it feeling /tg/. You might want to add advanced rolling options for OP (see what roll20 lets you do, for example).
3) The formatting options should adhere to the format of a quest. For example, it would be cool to add an out of character posting option under the line, because writing in italics OOC is a lot dumber looking than it sounds like. A lot of QMs use spoilers for this, but surely a better option could be made.
4) Consider just adding a polling option, and making it non-mandatory, since it's less transparent than post-voting and takes bumps away.
5) Consider tools for maps, or pictures editable on the fly, since lots of QMs use them already.
6) Consider making it /rp/ instead, to encompass all roleplaying. This will make it feel more like a child board of /tg/, and tie it more closely to tabletop culture, which is good. If so, allow OP to lock the thread for everyone but a specific IP cast of players, which would make it possible to run any /tg/ game on an imageboard with people watching.
>>
>>46948139
We are in a slow period, because frankly, questing reaches peak during summer months when no one has college or uni. Its going through the normal breathing pattern.

If quests were getting stale, then why is a /tg/ clone with less users, less content and less input going to be better? Would you just like to make a quest gravestone now? This idea is retarded.

>>46948206
*to keep the various Quests filled with a healthy amount of players.

I like having userIDs A LOT and it's cool to have tools like formatting. I'd be fine with a bump limit of 500, but it can be 1000 as long as the OP can shut the thread down.
I'm not so sure about the need to be SFW, but I'm personally fine with it either way.
Good that you changed your mind - it's an imageboard, people should be able to post images.

I'm not so sure we need a new board in the first place, is /tg/ having traffic problems? I think it's quite fine as it is in that regard.
The only thing that's a dilemma to me is the question with IDs. For quests I am absolutely in favor, but some may feel they would be a negative in other situations(can't think of any right now desu).

I think the best solution would be to give an OP options in regards to IDs and images.
>>
>>46947622
>>46947683

Perhaps if this had been implemented a couple years ago, or even longer ago, when the board felt more crowded, this would be a non-issue.
As it is, quests have carved out a comfortable niche on /tg/, and like any other content on the board, you're going to get some twat complaining, no matter what. "There's too much 40k, nobody needs a pathfinder general, I don't like this, it shouldn't be on MY board" et cetera.

It seems to me like this is an overly ambitious solution for a non-issue.

/tg/ isn't the best place for quest because of some intangible superiority the board exhibits or anything

it's the best plays for quests because that's literally what the board is for

if it wasn't why can we roll dice?
what's the point of that feature at all if it wasn't built with quests in mind?

>>46945911
Holy hell, have you ever actually BEEN in a quest thread?

There are two characters that are not of age, and one of them is permanently stuck in a biker suit. More importantly, all the characters are mentally adult.

I mean, the entire point of MGNQ is that it's about magical girls that got too old for this shit but have to do X before retirement.

Instead of making it flat "Only OP can post images" Let OP pick. Many quests require player generated content like the evolution games.

Just put a little check box OP can click to limit posting of pictures to him.

Why did you even post this if you didn't want constructive criticism. It sounds like you just glanced over everyone's opinions and went "You know, nah I think I'm going to go with my gut." I also don't think you know how quests work.

>and in the worst case kill both /tg/ and the new quest board.
Fuck off questfag, /tg/ was here before quests became as popular as they are now and /tg/ will be here after the questfags have all hung themselves.

You think people pay attention to the 4chan news posts?

anon you need to be aware of other posters, those capitals are aggressive and potentially triggering so put a trigger warning on posts like that in the future, okay?
>>

>overall will gut /tg/'s traffic.
While the rest is true, and /qst/ might die, this will have zero impact on /tg/ because the people who read quests will still drop by /tg/. The opposite isn't true because no one will know what's being run.

QTG on /tg/ would mitigate that, if it wasn't banned.
>>
>>46946852
sounds pretty neat

Plot twist: this entire thread was just /tg/ - the quest.
>>
There aren't enough quests to sustain a full board and a decent number will have to be snipped to fit with the new regulations.

Stop thinking with the spacebattles school of questing. Each of the questing websites has a way of doing things. The differences define them.
Trying to make 4chan quests more like Spacebattles with the asinine ruleset and ridiculous board split misses the point of it completely.

Redundant. With pretty much no images, it can't be NSFW.

Because the people on /tg/ interested in quests surely won't be able to complete the monumental task of looking at another board.

So speaking as a guy who does frequent fanart for quests... I really don't like that only the OP can post images rule.

and as a guy who is contemplating starting a quest, there is a part of me worried about the switch over.

Archiving being the big one. SupTg is used to archive everything and I don't know how readily it would be able to handle it.

Plus little things like how instant would people have to take their stuff over to a new board?

How do you get exposure on a board that is 100% quest?

And what else can the quest board be used for?
Like can you discuss Quests in "quest generals" What about civs and worldbuilding?
>>
>>46946319
Literally cannot stop laughing.

You do not understand, the quest format was essentially born on 4chan. It can be done on forums, but people don't make forums for quests. The only sites that are made for quests are a few imageboards and anonkun.com, a pseudo imageboard that let's people freely post images in the chat and is often in total chaos. People are supposed to get rowdy, it doesn't work otherwise.

Fuck off before you ruin shit for everyone
>>
>>46948438
>minority

None of you newfags remember /q/

How it constantly droned on and on for a quest board. How a vast majority of /tg/ wanted it then. How many of those people were shoved off /tg/ 3 years ago when quests were at the peak.

Those people would be able to come back

Not sure if I mentioned this already, but I think features like basic text formatting fo rthe OP, and some drawing/charting thing should be added to /tg/ instead of this new board.

>>46948519
>The people here that run quests are just trying to protect their own interests and are afraid of change.
Uh yes, in an environment about QUESTING it's really fucking important that quest runners protect the environment that allows their quests to flourish.

>>46948573
>I really don't like that only the OP can post images
Search the guy's other posts, that has been adressed.

>>46948552
/qtg/ is a cesspool, and this will just create a flood of "Take it to the quest board, faggots" if it tries to rear its objectively ugly head on /tg/.
>>
>>46948462
Mods would watch over the new board. Keep it from getting overrun.

>>46948482
the new board would bring new users, expand the userbase greatly

>>46947501

Oh shit, we aren't losing any players are we?

>>46948558
Frankly i prefer the current /tg/ quest format. It flows a hell of allot better than others ive seen.
Its not perfect, but its still good.
>>
THE "ONLY OP CAN POST IMAGES" RULE HAS ALREADY BEEN RESCINDED

STOP TALKING ABOUT IT

THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER REASONS WHY THIS PROPOSED SPLIT IS A TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE IDEA

>>46946319
>which completely ruin any kind of atmosphere that the quest author is trying to cultivate
t. retard who has never been a QM or even participated in a quest before
>>
>>46946319
Your reasoning is a joke.

Kindly drop this whole idea and die in a fire before you embarass yourself further.
>>
So, if I start my quest here, do I get banned?
>>
>>46948516
a separate board would have /tg/ tastes AND more users

>>46948576
It droned on with less than ten posters in favor for almost all of those threads.
They're very dedicated, but it only takes one to make a bunch of threads.

>>46948564
Text is NSFW anon, has been for over a year now.
>>
>>46948576
>lies and misinformation the post
>>
>>46948609
Clearly this new board needs to have editable posts.
>>
>>46948361
The problem is that all these quests, games, CYOA threads are overpowering the rest of the board. Many of us have zero interest in them and as such its already splinting the community and just causing friction.

I know there have been nights I got annoyed that there were no interesting threads to post in and half of the whole boards were some quest or other.
