Happy 10th anniversary, /tg/!
>>51734220The good kind though, with Mr. Rogers and Bob Ross. Oh, and somebody post the /tg/ is not a place thread. The one we post when we need hope for the future of the board.
Happy birthday everyone!/tg/ meta thread?>>51734247deleted my post
>>51734247Not sure which screenshot you're talking about.
>>51734325That makes me wish I saved my Kromgol ban. I caught one in the second or third thread calling out the sheets as fake as they were 1e or 2e sheets with 3.5 mechanics on them. Mods forcing memes is srs business.
>>51734047>10 yearsIs it really? I remember lurking here when this place was brand new. Fuck I'm old.
>>51734501Tell us of the "Good Ol' Days" then. The times that everyone says was better(mainly because everyone was fresh from /b/ and /m/, and able to ignore bait)
Thanks for everything /tg/. I hope to share many more sleepless nights in these hallowed threads.
good to be with you all these years /tg/
I feel on some level that the /tg/ that valued creativity and personal freedom has been put to the wayside by /pol/acks who seek to divide people who enjoy the hobby based on petty things like skin color and religion, and newfags who don't respect the old memes and traditions of the board.I'm probably seeing things through rose-colored glasses, but I feel like /tg/ has changed and become an angrier place. Not angry in the usual neckbeard way - angry in a way that people are afraid and want to lash out at something.Also fuck /pol/ for stealing Deus Vult from Crusader Kings 2.Happy 10th.
It's /x/'s 10th anniversary too.
>>51734739generals killed /tg/no conversation, look to the pastebin and we already talked about that last general so we can never talk about it againRuns through content too quickly for how much content /tg/ gets a year
>>51734779>implying it isn't the same threads every day since time immemorialThere's only so much /tg/-related stuff to talk about and it was exhausted years ago so your complaint is invalid.
>>51734381Was there ever any sauce to this picture or is the picture all there is?That was the most goddamn annoying thing about that spambot, that I actually wanted sauce on the chick.
>>51734934I can't remember her name but the image was from Suicide Girls. I loved all the boards edits of her.
>>51734739>>51734779>>51734799Some of you may know me, I'm the curator of the /fvgt/ threads. Anyone familiar with me on here knows I'm pretty idealistic about the board, especially about its ability to get shit done. I've spent a long time figuring out what went wrong with /tg/, and here's what I've decided:The board can live without quests, the board could live if it was entirely generals, the board can survive /pol/, and trolls by the hundreds, and the board can weather pretty much anything... except for one thing: autism. Well, more specifically what we refer to as autism, but more specifically mean the "I'm right, you're wrong, and I'm going to argue about it and reply to every response until I can browbeat you into submission" attitude that has become so prevalent. Everything has to be taken so seriously, so trolls barely put any effort. We need to fix this.Which is just another way of saying that we need to ignore bait.Of course, you guys know this doesn't work. In fact, it's Fucking ridiculous how bad we are at ignoring bait. Which is why I'm advocating a new(old) solution: derail the thread.Lindybeige, Varg, BBEG-Fag, MartialV.Caster, 3.5/Dungeon World, or another troll pops up? Switch the conversation from whatever weapon he's arguing didn't exist and turn it into a Monstergirl discussion, or something absolutely balls-to-the-wall ridiculous. Make sure nobody is able to take the thread seriously, and make sure you have fun doing so. TLDR: Serious /tg/ is at fault for ruining /tg/, which is why we need to loosen up the troll/autism threads a bit with more gonzo conversation.
>>51735056Great you are just encouraging the "lolepicscreencap" crowd. Old /tg/'s derails worked because they happened organically and most importantly unintentionally. We get fewer of them now because fucktards keep trying to be the next Sir Bearington or Edguardo.
>>51735095He's offering a solution, and while perhaps I don't agree with it, it's better than just complaining and going "lol you're wrong."Oh fuck, I took the bait.
>>51735095Well then... let them. At this point I would rather deal with a bunch of LoLEpicMemers than I would the cynical bog that /tg/ has become. I'd rather have stupid people enjoying stupid Shit and having fun than I would have another thread arguing about 3.PF.
>>51735131>>51735123Well, that and my other solution is to post actual content to drown out the shit. Love and Krieg 2.0? One of the best threads to come about in recent times, simply because it's encouraged people to produce something for the board. We've got like seven different Writefags in there pushing content.
>been browsing /tg/ for all this time>never even played any board game
>>51735257Shit... You know what, I need to get the /fvgt/ started up again. Expect to see it sometime tomorrow. It'll have a whole bunch of resources for you to get into virtual /tg/ stuff on the cheap side.
>>51735056I think the real issue is clannish bullshit. There's no reason autism should be special among the board's list of woes, but it flows easily when you've got enemies that need to be put to the sword. It also models edition wars perfectly, explains how anybody could get that mad about quests, explains for the rise of generals, and, most notably, demonstrates why baiting /tg/ is about as difficult and unreliable as turning on your computer. It's not that people are "serious," it's that they're at war. Going from ALLOW ME TO SPEND FORTY PAGES EXPLAINING WHY YOU ARE WRONG to LOLSORANDUMXDXDXD is just going to remodel the flavor of shit if they do so every time there's a VILE TROLL to VALIANTLY DEFEAT by POSTING WAIFUS instead of screaming autistically at him like before.Going to war, whatever its form, does not generate content, and that's really all that matters. It doesn't really matter if somebody's raging about Lindybeige or politics on a traditional games board so long as somebody else is doing something interesting elsewhere, but often they're not. I'm beginning to suspect the creation of /qst/ was an attempt to salvage actual content from its containment board, rather than the other way round.I don't really know what the solution to this is, but I'm fairly certain it involves discouraging the factionalism and clannishness of the board, and more importantly convincing people to post traditional games related content rather than /tg/ content.
>>51735284I hope I won't miss it desu
>>51734764>>51734769C U T E!
>>51735440>>51734769>>51734764Ah, damn.Well... We've got /vp/ now, so there's that.
>>51735381It might unfortunately be a symptom of how things are in the real world.Hear me out.Politics is becoming more and more of a thing taking center stage. It doesn't matter what these politics are, everywhere you go on 4chan, there'll be at least one post every thread about "leftists" and "conversatives" and what's a fascist, what's a cuck, etc.We seem to be growing more and more used to solving arguments by just shouting people down instead of just trying to mutually understand each other. There's no real debate, it's just shitposting.Then you got threads on /pol/ about "infiltrating" other boards with memes and shitposting (I know, /pol/ boogeyman, but you see it everywhere) which only exasperates things.I'd go onto Infinitychan at this point, but it has boards about kidfucking and animalfucking, and it's /pol/ basically runs the place.
>>51734739Here's another (You) for you
>>51735677Do you think that is is just an unusual time and things will invariably go back to normal or is this the new status quo? Something in between? Inn Between is a great inn name
>>51735797I don't know.I don't think people care anymore, because everyone is so insulated on their side of the political spectrum. That's why each side has found it so easy to demonize the other - their image of the other side is completely imaginary and made up of stereotypes and cliches.Like whenever I manage to drag myself out of bed? This shit doesn't happen. I go to the bar and no one talks about ANYTHING that involves politics. The only people I've seen talk about politics in real life have all been weirdos, who either believe in MEME MAGIC or that everyone on the right is some kind of Nazi.So either the real world really isn't as illogical and insane as people arguing about politics on the internet implies, or I just live in a place where people don't give a shit.>inb4 pepeposting
>/tg/ will never be at the 2007-2011 high point again>just progressively gets worse and worse as faggots chase out all forms of OC in favor of fucking general threads>nazimod purges are now basically accepted or even praised by the newfags that outnumber the oldI would gladly accept all the elf slave wat do brainless meme smut threads if it meant /tg/ could reclaim even half of what it used to be. I'd take every shitty animu "quest" if it meant we could have our badwrongfun here again the way we always did. I used to never bother or need any other boards and now I hardly even come here.I miss what this place used to be.
>>51734524Like several anons here were saying, the board was looser and more fun. People were a bit more childish, and a lot happier.That generation got old and bitter, especially after the rise of social justice, and it's taking a lot to turn things around.The real world is more verbally hostile than it was ten years ago, with everyone constantly belittling and acting smug and holier than thou towards their enemies, so really it's sort of a problem with society as a whole. I can only hope that we can return to a simpler, more fun time where we all just had fun together, instead of constantly fueling each other's depression.
>>51735890Oldfag here, along with you and the other oldfags.We all used to have things that made us rage in a neckbeard way. We all had things that we hated.I wouldn't say it's the rise of social justice like >>51735902 said, although it could possibly be a part, for even the greybeards of the 70's and 80's were angry at how tabletop roleplay had been getting "worse" since their day.I think it's because, as most of us are Millennials (early 1980s to 2000 is generally accepted as when the Millennial generation began)... we're a very angry generation. You can see from all the SJWs, the alt-right (actual alt-righters, not memefags), and a lot of military servicepeople being some of the angriest, most hateful fuckers on the planet.It seems to just be in the majority of our generation's nature to be angry. It's a damn shame it's only gotten so bad in the past... five years, I'd say?
>>51735890nazimod left in 2011. It's been 6 years that we've been responsible for our own issues.Anything that happens now is moderation, not nazimod doing anything.nothing currently is like nazimod of old
>>51736033>Millennials early 1980s to 2000I was born in '88 and I don't resemble, relate to, or consider myself a part of anyone born past like '95 at the latest. We're a distinct generation and I hate being lumped in with kids that grew up with smartphones as a norm when high tech when I was a kid meant you had a pentium and an early CD player.Overzealous moderation is what is killing this board and has basically eliminated what used to be the culture here. It wasn't a board strictly about discussing traditional games, it was a board for traditional gamers to discuss the shit we talk about with each other. There is a discernible difference and the latter made this a great place to be.>>51736051Yes nazimod is gone but the effects of those purges and subsequent purges are still very much being felt today. /tg/ has never really recovered and any time it begins down the path to the days of old it is swiftly beaten back down again. There exists a large and growing number of the population here that do not remember the old days because they weren't here. To them, /tg/ has always been this ridiculously strict environment that exists only to make general threads in.It has been a mistake to run out the major sources of OC we used to have, the drawfags, the writefags, even some questfags. It was a mistake to try to make this place a PC safespace barren of the sort of raunchy, smutty humor it used to have. This used to be a fun place to be even if it was just for the chaos of it all. Now it's just fucking general threads and bullshit.
>>51736120And that's the kind of tribalism that's killing us, anon.The sort of hatred for people born past a year, the separation of what makes us people, that's the kind of anger that defines us.It's not "PC," it's not Nazimod, and fuck, it isn't even /pol/ shitposting. I think it's a deep, resounding cynicism and hate against anything that old /tg/ used to be./tg/ used to be a place of perverted motherfuckers, but we also had a sense of class about it. We were nerdy as fuck, but we also generally had some skills to bring to the table, like modelling or writefagging. Above all else we were brothers and sisters, fa/tg/uys and ca/tg/irls, neckbeards with a true sense of community and tradition.Memes are shit for the most part, but they were also the basis for our culture. While /pol/ has Kek, Pepe, and THE JEWS, and /k/ has innawoods, AR-15, and /fit/ has being a bunch of flaming homosexuals, what does /tg/ have now?Elf slave, wat do? Considered cancer.Katanas are underpowered in d20? Shit and blind weeb hate without getting WHY that's a funny pasta.Abaddon the Armless? Ultrasmurfs? Cultist-Chan, Raege and Boone, Noh, hated.I don't want us to be enemies, anon. I don't care what generation you're from. I care about what you want to do, and what you want to make for the board.We need writefags, drawfags, fuck, we just need FAGS back, because Love and Krieg and All Guardsmen Party? THAT SHIT is old /tg/ that I remember, when we'd just make goofy shit and have fun with it.But people don't like it. A lot of people don't like it. Do some oldfags hate old /tg/ and love nu/tg/? Probably. But the people who love this board for what it used to be need to do shit.We need to get shit done.
>>51736226A day may come, when the courage of /tg/ fails, and we forsake our friends, and break all bonds of fellowship — but that is not this day! A hour of wolves, and shattered shields, as the age of /tg/ comes crashing down — but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear, on this good earth, I bid you CONTRIBUTE! ANONS! OF THE BEARD!
Certainty of sage. Small chance of success. What are we waitin' for?
>>51735902>sjws strawmanThat's bullshit and you very well know it, i agree with everything else, but the sjw part is bullshit. /tg/ was never really affected by sjws.
>>51734047what a shitty imageboard. fuck off, OPHappy B'day
>>51736226You're mistaken, I don't overtly hate millennials, I just don't consider my generation part of that group.Every board has changed, but /tg/ has had it bad. /k/ still has their memes but everybody has a gun now. /fit/ actually has some goalbod material and has upped their knowledge base. /a/ has done a pretty good job of keeping out undesirables and encouraging self reliance over spoonfeeding, etc./tg/ has lost its memes, lost its fun, lost basically all our OC generation that used to make this place great.Yeah I would absolutely love to get shit done. I used to draw here even though I wasn't great. I used to run a few popular quests. I used to join the writefag thread dogpiles from time to time. About all that's left of that is the drawfaggotry and even that isn't the same. Fuck when did greenmarine last post something here? Based on his recent stuff I'd say /v/ somehow ended up with him now.I loved doing quests but only here, because it was full of fa/tg/uys. /qst/ or anonkun or whatever can fuck right off because I don't have fun writing for other audiences. The people here, this board specifically, made it fun.
Happy Birthday /tg/, you have been with me for a good while, ever since I started a wee bit of tabletop and mostly 40k. I love you.But eh, I don't understand how I can contribute. I can't write fanfiction worth a shite, I can't draw and the only subject I know much of is 40k and I haven't been keeping in the loop as much as I was. It's a very saturated subject regardless.Anytime i tried to create a thread for something, It was ignored and fell off the board, so I kinda just stopped.
I love the thread postsI clear blue style styleI love great richesI love when PC's dieI love the whole boardAnd all Its sites and soundsBoomdeyada. Boomdeyada. Boomdeyada. Boomdeyada.
>>51734764>>51734769I'm actually glad the board-tan thing is dead and that it never caught on in /tg/.
>>51737727I love forty kayI love Dee n' DeeI love boardgaming waysI love em tee geeI love the whole boardWith all it's crazinessBoomdeyada. Boomdeyada. Boomdeyada. BOOMDEYADARRRGH.
>>51737856>other people are having fun wrongBut why?
>>51737865Basically, because the idea guys that tried to run the show did such a terrible job at it. The idea itself isn't absolutely terrible, but the end result was embarrassingly bad.It's a fantastic example of what happens when people without any talent are the ones most invested in a project.
The g in /tg/ might as well stand for generals nowadays. Would it help if the generals would stop naming themselves generals and stop with the samish pastebin etc. thread openers?
>>51738001having generals isn't the problem. The problem is that we have ONLY generals, and no issue-based threads anymore.The popularity of Quests forced Generals to be a thing. Now Quests have their own board, and yet we're still using generals.
>>51734779The pest that killed this entire site are /pol/tards.
>>51738053Lets create some issue based threads, then.>inb4 people just tell us to post them in the respective general, or not notice it altogether.
>>51738061The only reason they even exist is SJWs. You can trace the whole origin story back to stuff as dumb as a kickstarter to fund videos complaining about Princess Peach getting kidnapped or a mediocre walking simulator getting perfect scores because it had lesbians.
>>51737857I love the qualityand the shitposts tooevery day herethere's always something newI love the whole boardNo place I'd rather beBoomdeyada. Boomdeyada. Boomdeyada. Boomdeyada!
>>51735381>I think the real issue is clannish bullshitThink about where you are and the audience for traditional games.
>>51734047Happy 10th anniversary /tg/You saw me through some of the darker and happier times of my life.I miss /wst/, /tg/. I wrote a bit and started drawing and it's what made me discover a hobby aside from fapping and feeling sorry for myself. Most of all, there was this sense of helping out other anons with lewds that were related to some characters I knew, not some retarded /d/ickgirl vore. It was all a bit weird but then I realized I'm just a stupid neck beard and I better rolled with it, and once anonymous, at least we all could sort of relate. It felt like a family.Now it feels like a home where the cool cousins you experimented with have left and you're stuck with memories and boring Sunday roast dinner.
>>51738282Here's one that's only 1.5 years oldUnfortunately, it's from (the now dead) 8/tg/
>>51734934I forgot that was spam. I just saw the thumbnail nail and assumed it was acceptable for all boards. The spam must have given me Stockholm syndrome.
>>51735677I think you may be right about it reflecting the real world.I mean,>>51737727>>51737857>>51738124Even the Discovery Channel has turned to shit since they made that video in 2008 (which seems to match up with >>51738282).
Some of you guys are all right.Also those guys talking about tribalism being the reason things went to hell are right.
>>51738558That was a more innocent era, now there is a 40k megaplot, and it's grinding straight to the garbage.
>>51735381Generals 'rose' because its convenient. It has nothing to do with clannish behaviour. Stuff like /hwg/ and /awg/ also lets games that are too small get discussed easier. And means there is an easily accessible source for pdf's and resources.
>>51738632>>51738558>>51738469I'm REALLY glad /tg/ isn't like this is anymore. This is reddit-tier childish bullshit.
>>51738785I was wondering how long it was gonna take for some unironic tribalism to show up.
>>51738785You're aware that >>51738469 is only a month old, right?
>>51738876benis in bagine?hold hands?
>>51738876She bears no resemblance to an apple, so I have no sexual interest in her. I probably free her, sell her, or use her to answer the newsletter.
I ironically think this board's decline is due to 3 or 4 autismically obsessed shitposters. The same bait threads with identical OP images pop up constantly now. I think it was Martin Luther King day when there were literally 10 -4 strength threads back to back with identical OPs.
I miss that -4 str threads often evolved to muscle girl threads. Bait threads in general used to yield more interesting concepts than now. But mostly I miss the musclegirlsAt least arms&armor threads are still semi reliable
>>51738987Everyone memes about -4 str, but it was only -4 to max str which applies to only a tiny percentage of potential characters anyway and is perfectly reasonable.
>>51734739Is it too late to don my tinfoil hat and blame /leftypol/ for their obvious race-baiting and muh communism threads? You do know a good 90% of /pol/acks know to mostly keep /pol/ in /pol/, right?
>>51739097We've already gone through this. In the end we've decided on tribalism ruining /tg/
Lets take this in a brighter direction: What threads that you have contributed to are you proud of?I liked the Kowloon Penteract setting.
I miss DM Kroft
I miss slowness the most. Being able to read the OP of every thread posted, and the nice ones lasting multiple days. Everything is so fast now there's no point thinking about what you post.
>>51736256/tg/ already broke for many, anon.All those kicked out over the years for contributing.
>>51738053turns out it wasn't quests that made generals a thing. Fucked up big time on that front.
>>51738120/pol/tards existed prior to SJWs and Gamergate, they just didn't get as vocally retarded until those events because that's when the shoe-eating spergs of /v/ allied with them.
>>51739489It certainly popularized them, at least
Happy Tenth, /tg/!
>>51739545Not really? The two don't have any real corrolation or matchup. I mean, quests were here way longer than generals, for one.Really, what made generals happen was more population, and a rise in general bitterness and off topic shitposting necessitating contained communities.Same thing that causes generals anywhere else.
>>51739231I started the thread that started the current Love and Krieg threads, also Fading Embers.I was around during the HUGE marines, the Hanged, and the Rad Marines. Also the "Fucked the Moon Goddess" thread.I saw a drawthread that Culexus was in.I was in the That Guy thread featuring Benny the Weeb.Oh, also I was there to witness the lamentation of Autist-anon when he tried to crush on his GM's girl at the LGS.I also posted the Mr. Rogers threads a few times.
>>51739231>several of the things I was proud of are no longer allowed hereThis isn't brighter at alllll
>>51739673Questfag, ERP, or Weekend Smut. In any case nothing to be proud of.
>>51739673I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Pathetic Marines Role-playing threads that went on for days. I watched Quests flicker across the front page. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
>>51739710A. you are a fuckerB. more than that has been kicked out over the years.
>>51739710For you maybe. For us it represented a time when /tg/ wasn't so tribal. A time where we could set aside our differences and do something stupid... because it was fun!
I miss the days before people started caring about how cringey things on /tg/ were.Because back in the day, EVERYTHING /tg/ was cringey, so it didn't matter. Now for some reason people think the thing they like isn't cringe city.
I'm getting all hot and bothered because I keep reading tribalism as "tribadism". Shame on you, /tg/.
>>51739499It's a two-sided issue as well. /tg/ is much more willing to cry /pol/ at even the most tame post or pic, and is incapable of telling the difference between trolling and shitposting and irony.
>>51739851probably because /tg/ gets regular raids from /pol/, and has been under invasion since the election.Like, holy shit, the time since the election has had more /pol/ shitpost threads than all SJW threads over the course of our entire history combined.
>>51739873It will calm down at some point hopefully.
Looking at this thread, especially the 'derail' screencaps all i can think is how valid this picture is...
>>51739821never change, /u/. Never change. You made quests bearable, so thank you.>>51739873>invasionNo. It's not an invasion, it's cross-pollination. /pol/ has been happy since the election (obviously), and /pol/ really likes its space marines.We're not being invaded or anything, it's just that the anons who have always been here are posting more.
>>51739948Really the problem with /pol/lacks is the same one as /d/eviants. They can't fucking compartmentalize anything. I primarily post here and on /m/ but I don't constantly spam Gundam or Bike Riding Bug-Men in every thread. And I don't talk about D&D and L5R on /m/.
Pic related. /pol/ shit was always on 4chan. The cancer was just different, like remember nurse verity and all those gnolls fags fucking up the place? Everyone is getting nostalgic for old memes but LCB was considered cancer by many and most of the people pushing OC before quest faggots and generals took over the place got run out of here. So that tribalism was always present too. I think going work safe was the biggest hit and the generals kinda fucked up the more dynamic conversational style of what 4chan was supposed to be. I mean you could just go to any forum and find the same format. I dunno it's just a shift in ideology. Like folks thinking we needed mods to run out furfags and chopping the board into the generals just seemed to further divide it. In classic 4chan fashion I just blame Reddit, the Mods and M00t.
>>51740059I would agree with you, if it were just the /pol/acks were called out. I'm not a /pol/ack, but have been called one for posting something even vaguely political.Then I see anons go on and on, saying /pol/ derails threads by posting race-IQ charts and other shit that simply doesn't happen.
Millenials were a mistake
>>51740163Boomers were a mistake first
>>51736308I don't think anon meant SJWs coming here and telling what we should be saying is the problem, I think he just meant people have a lot of anger built up in them today. It's a very politically active time, pretty much everyone is encouraged to have strong, polarising opinions about politics in today's society and it makes people feel angry at just how dedicated people can get over things that seem to make no sense, as both the observed and the observer are too far removed to acknowledge each other's positions.Pic related, it's the start of a thread currently on /tg/, and I think it's a microcosm of what's wrong with today's society. Somebody makes a joke, and it immediately turns into people telling each other to fuck off over a single datum. Everyone who dislikes trump is an sjw, everyone who likes him is a /pol/lack. If they're on "the other side" they have nothing to discuss with you.It's just sad, really, how divided we can see ourselves as now that we are all together. Even in Ireland american politics are the center of discussion half the time, and your stance on their issues still determine who wants to associate with you or not.
>>51740191Fuck's sake, forgot pic
>>51739821So, do you think if we contacted him Papa-N would run Heretical Love Quest on /qst/? I mean, /u/ is all well and good, but some 40k Harem with a side of RAPE TRAIN HAS NO BREAKS would be nice.
>>51740197I tried to derail that thread with Waifruits. It worked for a bit.
>>51740102It does happen, but not usually in serious threads like some people imply. It's pretty much limited to troll threads started by /pol/acks that often get deleted within few hours.
>>51739948It's pretty much the definition of an invasion, including threads on /pol/ dedicated to how best to invade us cropping up every now and then.That, and them not getting anything about 40k or any games at all when questioned.
I dunno about you guys but I felt like shit for a long time until I started taking vitamins again. It might be a placebo thing though.
>>51739948Not all that true, /pol/ from my experience is interested in two things. 1. Spreading the "red pill" (am the only one who finds it funny that it's a red pill, while /pol/ hate everything commie?) and 2. "confirming" that the evil SJWs/cultural marxists are indeed trying to invade everything and change it to their liking. /tg/ has always been a bit on the left side, but at the same time never really took well to showing politics into the hobby (if you need confirmation just look at the main complaints about eclipse phase). We are the one's that "need" redpilling and we are easy to trigger, so we are a fertile ground for /pol/ raiding . Plus, science anyone can make a rpg, there are some sjw rpgs that are easy to dig up, thus /pol/tards can feed their paranoia
>>51740402>am the only one who finds it funny that it's a red pill, while /pol/ hate everything commie?You had me for a moment there before I realized you were trolling. Well memed
>>51736226This, this is what the whole board needs to realize.It's not the generals, /pol/, or newfags killing us for the most part, it's us.We need to laugh at our stupidity.We need to make more nonsensical things and have new projects to work on.We need to get the whole board involved in our crazy antics again, to come together as a community.
>>51740427im not, i just found it funny,
Been here since day 2.Been on 4chan since about October 2004/tg/ is about as good as ever really. Better than a lot of periods it's had.
>>51740511I can only actually think of one other period that was worse than this one.
>>51734524Not that anon but I was from /k/ and thus was looking for systems to shoot things with.
>>51740508I refuse to believe that there's anyone on 4chan who's never seen The Matrix and/or doesn't get the redpill reference.
No matter what the future brings, I will always love you faggots.Stay classy /tg/
>>51740552ffs, i get the reference, i just find the coincidence funny
>>51740552It's still funny that favorite meme of /pol/ comes from Hollywood movie made by jews that later became trannies.
>>51740580Just as planned
The "problem" with /tg/?Us.We have the power to make this into whatever we want. The "scary" part? We do.The fact that other people exist and are different... that's just a fact of life. 10 years ago, we were different. Over the course of years some people left, and some changed. More importantly however, some people came and visited. Even stranger, some of those people stuck around.Perhaps it isn't perfect. Perhaps we believe we can be better. Perhaps not, maybe we like things just fine. However, if change is what we want, how do we obtain it? Pointing the blame at the younger generation is a time honored tradition, but it never accomplishes anything - after all, they will most certainly outlast you. Blaming others doesn't work, because then everybody just thinks everybody else is wrong and nothing happens.So what do we do? We already know.Keep posting, friends.We will make fun of you. We will insult you. We will, occasionally, completely ignore you.But we love you.We would be nothing without the 10,000 posts that may as well be dirt because, once in a while, we find gold.Here's to 10 more years.tl;dr - see >>51740564
>>51739873>and has been under invasion since the election.More like since 2010. Though at that point its more colonization.
>>51740576Oh wow, you're serious. You really think all the /pol/-posts are outside influence?Incredible.>>51740580I blame ancient egyptian meme-gods.
>>51740640not outside, but it's rather obvious that 80% of their post are cross board week trolling attempts by people who know very little about said hobby
>>51740273/tg/ actually got me taking vitamins and seeing a doctor for my depression.Now I got a new job in a new state with a new LGS that plays nearly every game imaginable.
>>51740640>I blame ancient egyptian meme-gods.Well, that's even more funny cause alternate reading of Kek is Kuk.
Happy 10th Anniversary /tg/!
>>51740664A lot of boards are facing that problem now./a/ has been getting spammed with bait and rec threads for about 2 months now.
>tfw you've been using 4chan since 2005>tfw you have spent literally your entire adult life here, and you're almost 30Feels weird man
>>51740691THEY CANT KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT
>>51739873you realize /tg/ was largely purged of all /d/egenerates, with the generals being autosaged, which then spread to the other boards like /pol/ and /v/, creating the 40k memers, which then filter back here and slowly bring back the old /tg/ board culture.
Remember to be the change you want to see in /tg/.If you have time to bitch about old mods, generals, SJWS, and /pol/ then you have time to make content and good posts.
>>51740664I suppose you don't pay too much attention to mtg lore threads, then, because that outrage is organic as a hippie's breakfast>>51740691Isn't Kuk was his wife/female-counterpart?
>>51740402>/tg/ has always been a bit on the left side,This is your problem./tg/ was never on the left side. Or on the right side. It was apolitical at best, and trying to pretend that /tg/ shares your personal viewpoint is just trying to paint a larger community with your colors.Your experience is biased, and frankly, wrong.
>>51740736Nope, Kuk is altenate reading of Kek. His wife is called Keket or Kekuit.
>>51734524Way more porn. Way more /b/ meme permutations (/b/ was still 4chan's "main" board then). No mods. No jannies. Morr spam, especially by furry trolls.Way way way more 40k.
>>51740760Reminds me of 8/tg/ back in the beginning.
>>51740745by a little on the elft side i mean it never had much of a problem with gays or somewhat progresive motives in rpgs/table tops
happy anniversary and loosen up you sad fucks
>>51740760/tg/ was also much smaller back then
>>51740882Well, we were all faggots to begin with.
>>51740882It only didn't have a problem with gays if they didn't say anything about being gay. Really, you need to stop trying to pass on your own feelings as those of the larger board.
>>51740892That's an amazing picture.
>>51740892Anon's right.We need to stop moping about the past and just go out and have fun with the time we have right now.Now then, let's have some fun and post a bunch of shitty jokes and memes.
>>51740920It's a depiction of Jiub, the dark elf on the boat with you in the beginning of Morrowind, fighting off an army of cliffracers.
Happy Birthday /tg/!You filthy glorious bastard! You!As much as i write this post mostly for myself i honestly thank you guise for everything, i still absolutely believe that /tg/ is only non retarded board here and probably always will and with all those shenanigans we did together, (past... i don't know, 9 years? 8 maybe?) this board is as much 'me' as many other things in my live. Some people might think its sad or full blown autism i think it was worth it.It was fucking worth it you dicks.One up for all of you, oldfags, newfags, orginalfags...Thank You.
>>51740201Nobody wants to run on /qst/
>>51740995with all the gay furry porn that was posted, that must mean everyone on /tg/ is a gay furry with iron donuts
>>51739873/pol/ and /tg/ have a deeper link than many /tg/ are willing to examine I think. Both tend to involve a romanticization of the past, gathering up ye arms to defend 'king and country', debate and identification of various 'savage outgroups' which must be regularly defended against, the establishment and guardianship of beloved traditions and order.Conversely, by certain arguments there 'IS ONLY ONE RACE IN DnD, THE PLAYER RACE!' (which has an air of scientific legitimacy as halflings, elves, gnomes, humans, dwarves, orcs and goblins can all interbreed.) However, I can't imagine too many players or gamemasters would actually want more than the occasional crossbreeds, otherwise the setting loses so much enduring diversity in the name of maximal temporary diversity.Even ignoring the blatant ethnocentric/racist imperialist tones in 'going out and justifiably looting someone else's shit because they are green and don't speak good english' many campaigns inevitably involve war and conflict, which will involve politics and ethics, which will inspire debate and allusions to IRL analogues.Pic related: War of the Worlds is a clever commentary on the British colonialism, particularly examples like the Tasmanian 'Black War'.
>>51741061Yes, but we're also hypocrites, so it's all good.
>>51741103>the blatant ethnocentric/racist imperialist tone
>>51741103Fuck off with your bullshit, multi-monster-race culturescapes are the fucking best.Monstro town for life.Also, those connections between /pol/ and /tg/ are reaching at best.
>>51741103I think you are looking at things through a /pol/shade, anon.
>>51741103exactly, the lesser races just need to be uplifted and we can all live in a happy multicultural society together with orks and elves.
>>51735381Personally, I think that the /tg/ reflex of always responding to the trolls is one of the most endearing parts of the board. Half the time, even obvious trolling can be turned into a decent conversation for a bit.
>>51740995Except that's how it was and is.
>Not recognizing baitWell, at least we all know what to start working on.
>>51741156You're a retarded fuckhead who keeps perpetuating a dumb thing from way back in the day, when the post limit was only about a hundred posts and there was no catalog.Now, responding to trolls does nothing but add to their post count and encourages them to keep making the same retarded threads.
>>51741173the main difference is that you were allowed to image dump, dub post, and publicly sage those threads.
>>51741145Nah, he's right that there is fair share of love for traditionalism in /tg/ stuff. Reason why /tg/ doesn't work well with /pol/ is more related to fact that /pol/ likes blatant fascism (which is actually more related to modernism than traditionalism) too much and tends to often have /r9k/-tier views on women.
My memories of the first few years are quite hazy, but in early 2007 the board was mostly 40k and D&D 3.5e, with lots of creative threads and drawfagging. In my recollection MtG threads were exceedingly rare compared to the current popularity, for example. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. 40k and Battletech brough many likeminded anons from /m/ to our new board.Summer-autumn '07 brought the invasion of the proto-/jp/sies, who were becoming a vocal subculture on /a/ with their touhou hijacking ways (this was about half a year before mootles would split those two boards). Not all fa/tg/uys appreaciated the sudden influx of weeaboo thread spam, but most praised the autistic minmaxers. Dwarf Fortress also became huge in the summer of '07, Something Awful's Boatmurdered LP being the sole cause. It never really became as popular on /v/ as here on /tg/, and the creation of /vg/ pretty much killed Dorf Fort discussion here, but for five or six years there were constant threads about it.The hilarious edition wars between 3aboos and 4rries that began in summer 2008 were the highlight of that year, and would continue for years to come. After that came the furry invasion, with Flare, gnolls and the like. Quests exploded after Rubyquest in early 2009. For about a year the board was at its most chaotic state, with fapfics, thulsa doom, drawfags providing porn, elf slave wat do, furfags yiffing, creative questing, and absolutely no moderation between the time moot banned Jim Profit in late '08 after weeks of whining and emails to him about the avatarfagging narutard, and late '09-early '10 when Nazimod and his crew of exceedingly enthusiastic janitors started to take an interest to the board. Thus began the Great Purge, which did successfully eliminate the furry menace, but a lot creators of original content were casualties of war, never to be seen again.
>>51741103See, if all troll posts were this good, nobody would complain about automatically taking the bait.
>>51741257And, you know, a hate for traditionalism if you play different games.
>>51736033>military servicepeople being some of the angriest, most hateful fuckers on the planet.As a soldier, civilian neckbeards are some of the nastiest people I've ever known
>>51741152> happy multicultural society together with orks and elves.>Sharing with a species that breeds in litters and are names for their patron god of oathbreakers and death>political or financial equity with a species who's median age is longer than our cultural cycles and only needs sleep for two hours a day.Not even in a post scarcity environment bro.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>mfw I've spent this much on /tg/
>>51741295True, but you can't really argue that Tolkien-style romantic traditionalism isn't a big thing in RPG gaming. I don't personally enjoy it that much (more of a science fantasy guy myself and traditionalism for me is pulp SF), but it's there and it's big.
>>51741389romantic traditionalism is way different than whatever the fuck /pol/ has going on.
>>51741404True, but the twisted ideology of /pol/ is actually based on traditionalism on many levels.
>>51741446I think /pol/ is made entirely out of contrarianism, as traditional values are not appreciated there.
>>51741404They arn't a singular entity. Hell you get huge roleplay/mass debate threads of 'MUH ODEN vs DEUS VULT' even within a broad swath of 'traditionalists' (and that's before the Deus Vulters start the equivalent of 'edition wars' over proper administration of the rites and catechisms'.)Then there's vicious dialogues between 'x' and 'sci' debating cosmological models with bizzare blends troll physics, meme magic, and actual fucking physics trying to prove the moon is or is not a hebrew lizardman hologram of sinister design.I'm not FROM /pol/ 'm from /tg/ and only began to wander after the nazimod started kicking out the drawfags, eventually I checked in on /x/ and /pol/ for good campaign inspirations and found something familiar about their methods of madness.
>>51741465>traditional values are not appreciated there.I admit I haven't been lurking there a lot, but to me it would seem that many people there appreciate many traditional values like chastity until marriage, traditional gender roles etc.
>>51741548The only values they have expressed thus far are a love for pepes, a love for memes, and a hatred for ethnic group of the month.Also a love of shitposting on the wrong board.
>>51736226Just wanted to stop in to let you know, your my nigga man. It's been honor.
>>51741590can i be your nigga anon can we all be our niggas?
>>51741548Well that sure as shit doesn't describe /tg

>>51741261two questions: how did Thulsa Doom become a thing, and wasn't /tg/ obsessed with Alpha Centauri for a bit there also?
>>51742508Not him (been browsing 4chan only since 2009) but I remember Alpha Centauri threads quite fondly. You may not know this but there was a PnP of SMAC
>>51741261You know what cracks me the absolute fuck up? Is that whenever people reminisce about 4chan's history they always describe the 2007ish period as being the golden age of 4chan cultureEven Moot described this period as being the most creative and imaginative period of 4chan's history. It's like in a typical fantasy setting where you have people reminiscing nostalgically for a now extinct ancient high tech civilisation that once a ruled land/planet/galaxyI see this literally all the time

Holy balls. 10 years. I thought it was longer.Right off the bat, I want to say that every last one of you has brought me joy and I'm glad to know you.As for why /tg/ has gone "downhill"...When it started up, the idea of an anonymous board was new and radical. All those ideas that we had been banned at other boards for, or ideas we held back for fear of being banned were finally safe to post. We could say whatever we wanted with the only repercussions being called out on our shit.Now all the easy ideas have been discussed. All the stuff we held back on even mentioning have been posted, torn down, and re-built. Those truly odd ideas now have outlets on a dozen different specialist sites. They've been examined and discussed there, and many have been banned here for NSFW reasons.We've explored to the edge of the map. What was once only known to a few strange explorers are now well traveled and tamed. We're out in the true wild now. All the crossroads have been found, and towns built there.We lack innovation not because it's dull, but because all the easy stuff has been done already.
Been here since Day One.Thanks for the fun times, /tg/.
>>51742508It was a joke. One time was funny, but many on /tg/ have the sense of humor similar to a four year. They think the same joke is as funny the 50th time they tell it as it was the first.
>>51743494the 50th telling is always the funniest
>>51736226>We need to get shit done.Fuck. This hit me pretty hard. I'm with you, anon. Let's get shit done. Like we used to. Like a fucked up family.
>>51743681Alright /tg/, answer me this: If you fucked someone who was invisible, would you see your own dick pump in and out, or would it disappear too?
>>51743780it would disappear
>>51743792Next question: When people think "it don't be like this", and other people say "it do" whose right?
>>51734047happy birthday fa/tg/uys, its been an honor trolling with you lot for this last decade.
>>51743849>>51743866What an arsehole farmer, couldn't he just dig around the edge of the hole to make a lil ramp for Donkey to walk up?
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/921167/It's actually pretty interesting comparing older /tg/ with new in terms of speech patterns and posting style. You can tell there are differences, but I think to a certain degree it's more similar than I was originally expecting.>Great. We've taken a conversation from anal spelunking to tree ejaculate volume. Good to see that whatever board you have a look at, you still know you're on 4chan.
>>51741347My nigga, I know this is bait, because I also lumped in civilians with military-types.Don't get defense along military-civilian lines. Both of us can be nasty, nasty fuckers.
>>51744064Man, everyone looks so excitable about that silly idea back then, try an idea like that these days and you'd get torn to shreds for magical realming.
>>51744064that thread would be pruned before 20 posts now
Things change, including us. Nothing wrong with that!
>>51744129there is a profound amount of negativity that comes from a handful of posters that trawl all the threads outside the generals. it's rather sad.
Best /tg/ thread of all time incominghttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/1293827/
>>51734262I remember when I posted this. Still feels great man.
>>51744254nah the day /tg/ was possessed by /x/ and went batshit insane over THE HUNT CONSUMES ALL!
>>51744324you mean this?http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24430166/
>>51738785Poster of >>51736226 here. Yes, I know, that's not exactly valued information, but I think that it'd be poignant if I say why your statement might be considered everything that is wrong with not only /tg/, but internet culture as a whole at the moment.Why does it matter if the fun is childish? Why does it matter if the fun is "stupid"? Moreover, why does it matter if it's anything labelled as "reddit-tier bullshit"? We'd already discussed that tribalism is killing /tg/, but as I said another reason may well be that we're too damn cynical for our own good.Look at those threads, anons, and judge them based on your own filter, and ask yourself; why is stupid fun WRONG? Is the point of fun not to stimulate yourself, to relax and to simply roll with the experience? When you go to see an average action movie, it will probably be schlock - but schlock has it's place. It's a method of turning your brain off and experiencing simple joy and happiness at a thing. You can recognize it's schlock, but you can still enjoy yourself with it!It's much like Dungeons and Dragons. I know, some people have made the game a roleplaying experience that they will always have fond memories of, that some of the deepest, most meaningful interactions with people that they've ever had have been because of DnD.Gary Gygax, however, never thought of roleplaying as a "proper" way to play his creation. He was, first and foremost, a war gamer, and it shows in DnD's mechanics, and how a lot of it seems to be meant to be played a meatgrinder murderhobo simulator.But people have fun with it anyways, because even if it's schlock, it's fun.Who gives a shit if anyone sees you as childish, or... "reddit-tier" when you play games that are, at their core, fantasy? Things that are MADE for going on a wondrous journey?Call of Cthulhu isn't exactly a definition of "wondrous" I know, but sometimes, you can have stupid, childish fun even when you're being driven mad.
>>51743780>>51743792Well, that kind of depends. I feel like if it was science making the person invisible, your dick would disappear, as the most likely cause of the invisibility is some kind of light bending array. If it was magic, however, I give it about even odds that you'd be able to see your dick, depending on if was an illusion spell cast on an area around the invisible whore, or a transmutation spell making the whore themselves, but only themselves, fully transparent.
>>51744350I guess it's another problem we as an internet seem to have; this obsession with being seen as "adult" with "proper" sensibilities and obligations, even in our relaxation periods. We want to be seen as cool and collected and wise, even when we're playing Halflings or Dragonborn or Orcs or Humans or fucking Elves.I hate Reddit. Reddit is everything wrong with the internet in one place with a shitty mascot. But one thing that they've always had over us? They know what they are, and they're not ashamed of it.That's why /pol/ is doing so well. It's why /k/ and /fit/ and /a/ do so well compared to /tg/ - they know what they are, and they accept it, and they don't give a shit what other people think about them.Yes, old /tg/ had stupid shit happen. It had immature, relentlessly childish memery, like Angry Marines, or Pretty Marines, or Scary Marines. Things that a lot of people look at now and cringe and say "how retarded."That was the point. We KNEW they were stupid jokes. We KNEW they didn't make any logical sense. We just didn't give a shit, because they were ours, and to hell with anyone who'd try to take them away and ruin them.I have browsed new /tg/ for a time now, and I don't see anything that the board can collectively say is OURS nowadays. We don't have any OCs like Cultist-Chan, or Urist the Dwarf./tg/, at it's core, was a bunch of perverted, immature nerds, who also had skills and could create sweeping, grand things, or stupid shit.There is nothing wrong with stupid, childish fun, because while children tend to be stupid, they also tend to be HAPPY. They know how to laugh, and to simply enjoy things as they are. It's a beautiful innocence.I think we need to stop taking ourselves so seriously, and just... let the dice roll again.Yes, it's sappy bullshit, but it still needs to be said. Let people judge me for themselves.I just want to have fun again.
>>51744350I like your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.Fuck this srs bsns bullshit.
>>51744350/tg/, and 4chan in general, has been ruined by people who think hating something makes them seem more mature or their opinions more important.
>>51744254Greatest Quest of all time incoming.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19414868/
>>51744350>>51744435Let's have some fucking fun, dude!
>>51744432the real question is why a whore would need an invisibility enchantment or illusion
>>51744350>>51744435What a couple of garbage posts. You can have fun without acting like a retard. /tg/ should continue to keep having fun, but it's sense of humor should evolve beyond being meme-spouting autism. The idea that fun = stupidity and childishness is cancer.
>>51744482this, the current nerd fad of being a bitter jaded asshole who can't see the good in anything is really wearing thin.
>>51743255>And when Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer.I remember back when there were sergals all over this shitty place, when the ponyfags were rampant, when there was eternal war between 40k players and the furry deviants.I also remember when I could post a thread starter about a notional campaign setting and start getting hits before it was bumped more than twice. I remember seeing serious, if brutally 4chan, advice threads for DMs and players. I remember Iron Quest, where /tg/ began to write serious speculative fiction on no notice, and game finder threads where you could actually find something worth playing.Now, I see nothing but troll threads, forced memes, and shitty collectible card and miniature game threads for rich idiots. Single issue posts or threads about possible settings sink like stones into a mire filled with "stat him" and fetish fuel threads that fill to busting and sink like gorging leeches in a marsh that is a giant's bowel.The creators are gone, left for more civilised places, and the remains here are barbarous and cruel.

>>51744484No, my friend. Behold, from the depths of 8/b/, the very greatest Quest of all time!
>>51744524The idea that fun = stupidity and childishness is indeed incorrect.Fun does not = stupidity and childishness.Fun ⊇ stupidity and childishness.You're just looking for a chance to be a dick.
I miss the old drawthread format. The one where one drawfag opened a thread and sometimes other ones would join in.Nowadays it's all people spamming their request with made up rules in a sterile general.

>>51744569As if the Pepe didn't give that off.
Fuuuark, I was just about to post how I was a new fag lurker and then I realized that I`ve been here for at least 8 years.... Well shit happy tenth TG
>>51744683anon you've been here longer then /pol/'s entire userbase, your an oldfag.
>>51744524>>51735688I'm going to assume you two are the same. Perhaps that is presumptuous of me, but let's call it a hunch.You cannot harm me with cartoon frogs. Especially not Pepe.I wish you were not compelled to be a contrarian, anon. I wish you too could, perhaps, just not take yourself or take things so damn seriously./tg/ isn't just roleplaying games. It's wargaming and card games, a competitive sphere, which lends itself to seriousness of course, but can also lead to people wanting to dick around with retarded builds or decks. It is a sphere where two men at summer camp showed children the joys of Magic, of letting them be heroes and villains in their own right, if only for a short amount of time.It is things like Dwarf Fortress and other roguelikes, where around every corner lies death and destruction, but such things encourage recklessness and bravery in equal measure as long-term planning and cold, hard logic.It is works of fiction, works of art, made by anons, some lost to the ages, some remembered now as what used to be pillars of the community, and even legends such as Gannadene, maker of Commissar Fuklaw (known better now as Plague of Gripes) can succeed in other areas!As >>51744569 said, fun ⊇ stupidity and childishness. If you simply wish to make an excuse to be a cock, then I accept that. It comes with the territory of 4chan.But you cannot harm me with Pepe. You cannot harm me with anything. I have armored myself with it, and have made it known what I am. I desire fun. Relaxation. I will let other people judge my posts on their own merits, if they agree, or if they hate them.But perhaps the main reason you cannot harm me with Pepe? I remember what he once was.
The Runic Men playthrough is one of my favorite tidbit of /tg/ history but I doubt it could happen now.I miss when the board was less heavily moderated by badwrongfunfags.
>>51744730it really is strange how so many people here on /tg/ have come to hate board culture, and yet they decry places like reddit, when in reality that's exactly how they want this place to be, stagnant and sterile.
>>51734047Happy birthday, /tg/. It's been a good run so far. Here's to ten more years.
>>51742859And the big thing between then and now?You banned the furries and OC.Great job, /tg/.
>>51739052>>51738987>>51738981This. There is unironically nothing wrong with -4 Str. If anything it keeps out cross-gender players and women who are generally the worst members of an RPG group anyway.
>>51744882Even RPG.net has posters who want to contribute making and discussing things they like unironically.In our haste to throw off the shackles of moderation, we have lost the original purpose of our board.
is it true?
>>51745077Incel sexist fuckmorton detected.
>>51741257I would say that /pol/ and /r9k/ tend to have some pretty awful views on women, but... well.>>51745077Maybe one day /tg/ will know how to girls.
Happy bday /tg/Love ya
>>51745123Pretty much. m00t never cared for /tg/ since it basically left him alone, except for the usual "m00t is a fag" posts that used to be so common back in the day....you know, you really can blame the rise for all this SJW, alt-right, /pol/tard and tumblerina shit on Gamergate, can't you? I mean fuck, m00t was deep in it too.I mean these issues still existed, clearly, but Gamergate brought that shit into the mainstream, and... well, here we are.
>>51745130We know how to girls... as long as they aren't human, or their personality can be described using a D&D class.We're better at girls-adjacent, which is exactly as gay or degenerate as we decide is enjoyable at the moment.
>>51738282Hey, we had a female SM thread the other day derail into:>shitting on the USMC>actual weightlifting grills >>>>>> musclegirl waifus>does the lack of peer review and original research mean that medicine isn't part of STEM ubermenschenThe problem is, it's all just fucking anger - nobody even laughed at the thread derailing, just kept on sperging out at each other even more.
>>51745123>>51745162Well, not entirely...
>>51740197Fourth poster there, and honestly it was just done out of irony and how fucking sick I am of seeing political shit thrown everywhere, like, fucking everywhere. I'd even call myself a libtard, but when the first fucking reply is that politically charged, the only way I can see the thread going is shitpostdom, in which case fueling the bait at least gets a few cheap laughs from too.
>>51745227M00T YOU SON OF A BITCH.YOU WERE A NECKBEARD AND YOU NEVER INTERACTED WITH YOUR CHILDREN.THIS IS WHAT IT IS TO BE ABANDONED BY YOUR GOD.
>>51745271I get that you're frustrated. I think on some level, we all are (except for the hardcore /pol/acks and shitposters who think this will get them le ebin meme screenshot).But ironic shitposting is still shitposting. You know better than to feed.
>>51745278m0t literally sold out all his beliefs and became a hyper normalfag.is this seriously any surprise?
>>51745130>Maybe one day /tg/ will know how to girls.The average is bad, I'll admit, but I did meet my wife because of /tg/.
>>51745296We should Shitpost for a reason then. Bullshitting for reasons is called politics.
>>51745296There's nothing wrong with a little shitposting, as long as it's not full-on stormfag tier.
>>51745130>Maybe one day /tg/ will know how to girls.We already got the basics.
>>51745278I think moot was ashamed of being associated with us neckbeards since it clashed with the twenty-something techy life he wanted to live.I'm sure it didn't help that all of his attempts to make something other than 4chan ended up crumbling under him, and even 4chan was pretty much a ripoff anyway.
>>51745318I'm happy for you, anon. I met my girlfriend of two years because of 40k, which I found out about because of Dawn of War, which led me to /tg/.Even in a sea of shitposts, trolls, frogs, and political madness, people can still find happiness.Now if we contribute and remember that the only badwrongfun is being an absolute cock at the expense of all others, maybe, just maybe? /tg/ can get shit done once again. Maybe more people will into girls (or guys) in the process - people dig confidence and being laid back.
>>51744730>I desire fun.>on /tg/>>>/out/In all honesty, literally everything about your post is so accurate it hurts - and the last line hit me like a ton of fucking bricks.
>>51745130I see a lot of married neckbeards, so I don't think it's an impossible dream.
>>51745378Not entirely sure how, but I feel like pic related is somehow relevant
>>51745405I do my best. I've got at least 2 stories that got turned into screencaps (and not just for a laugh). I try to post OC every day, even if it's in general threads. Be the poster you want to see on the board.
>>51745378>>51745439Hang on, people only have two holes right? One up top in front and one down behind, where's the third?
>>51745507Nobody tell him.
>>517448824chan as a whole got touchy with easily shareable board culture after that shit started getting jacked from 4chan and spread all over the internet. I've seen the Sir Bearington story all over the place and mentioned by people who have no idea 4chan even exists.It's why most of the board culture that remains is something that your average joe couldn't post on his Facebook page or meme it to his friends very easily. It still diffuses eventually because nothing really stays in place on the internet, but the process is greatly slowed.Baneposting is an interesting example of this. It's endured for years because no one could really take it from us.>>51745507Spacedocking obviously.
>>51745507/tg/ is either bad at women's anatomy or obsessed by women's anatomy.
>>51745548original meme, do not steal
>>51745378I got pretty surpised now, that I immediately recognised the source from the girls underwear, even though I haven't even read the manga.
>>51745548I get your point.Normalfags are some of the worst things to ever blight a board. Lurking is a lost art.I don't think 4chan should be a SECRET CLUBHOUSE, because that logic is gay, but on the other hand, we can't have normalfags creeping about the place not getting things and why they happen and ruining the flow of conversation.It's why I'm for 1d4chan. Is it full of old memes? Yes. Is it full of opinions that don't necessarily seem to mesh with a lot of people on the board? Absolutely. But it is a quick and dirty introduction to /tg/ board culture... which is a problem, because as we've discussed in the thread, /tg/ board culture seems to be less "get shit done", which was admittedly hit or miss back in the day, and more "NO FUN ALLOWED", generals, and... well, people thinking that fun doesn't equal fun ⊇ stupidity and childishness, but fun = stupidity and childishness.I'm not going to say 4chan was a perfect sanctuary. We've always had trolls, and assholes, and dicks, and quite frankly 4chan could pull off some pretty scummy things (not "your credit card number is censored if you put it in!" stuff, that's just trolling. I mean defacing cancer charity websites with gay porn and harassing kids with cancer or getting people thrown in jail for the lulz).I also think that, maybe, a lot of what it is... well, sometimes, people just don't like the old ways. Why, I don't know - perhaps it's simply part of generational rebellion.But until we're forced out, I will continue to try to remind /tg/ of what we were, and what we could be. Perhaps I'll even take up writefagging, with all the burdens, shitslinging, and sage that implies.
>>51745790The phoneposters bug me more. They never post images. Only a few of them bother with grammar and spelling.
>>51745548Yeah, Imgur is still carrying the 'op is a fag' torch that was lit back in 2004 or something.
>>51745902That picture reminds me of something that happened in my country, years ago.A major newspaper ran a story on furries, and it was pretty much as embarrassing as you'd expect. AND, like with all furries, they were all wolves, dogs, foxes, tigers, and so on. Because furries are the least original people around. I think one of them was a badger, which is barely original.Except for one dude. His fursona was a "Panduck". A red panda crossed with a duck.It's stupid and I love it. So while the bar is set incredibly low, that guy is my favourite furry. Not because I know him or particularly like him, but because it's the only time I've seen anything fursona related and thought "Wait, that's actually weird". Lovable stupid is miles ahead of uninspired foxes and wolves.
>>51745481who is the author? looks russian
>>51736226I hear you, and answer the call! To Renewed Bonds! to the /tg/ tribe, old AND new!I will make content! I will give feedback!aure entuluva! aure entuluva!AURE ENTULUVA!
>>51746097He's actually one of the artists for Metalocalypse if I'm remembering correctly.
>ten years>still no tabletop roleplaying groupWHHHHHYYYYYY
>>51746236just go to /qs-- wait nevermind.
>>51746236Got any friends?
>>51746264No, and I don't want to play online because that doesn't feel 'genuine' to me, but I'm too shy to go out to a public place to play because then people will see me.
>>51746236If you've been here ten years and haven't gained even a single person you want to play with, that's on you, man. Most people either find a group through luck, or they do the rando roulette.>Go to gamefinder>Join a game that sounds nice>It will be shit, and/or it will die within 5 sessions>But you will make one or two contacts, people you actually like and stay in contact with.>Repeat this process between three and a dozen times. this should take about six months to a year.>Introduce everyone to each other and start pulling a group together. Fairly even odds this will blow up in your face. If it does, redo from start.>If it all works, you have your gaming group and should enjoy years or decades of play>Or you can resign yourself to solo or two-player games, they're not as bad as people claim.
>>51746280Then you have bigger problems than not having a gaming group.
>>51734524This place was always pretty bad. I remember devising copy-paste trolls to post here in my dorm room in 2007.
>Love Can Bloom>New Commissar >Commissar Dan>Angry Marines>Pretty Marines>Faptau>Mikoposting>-4 STR fightsHalcyon days, man. Anyone have the old black/white comics of a mod sweeping away OC and Moot as a Sister of Battle punching a neckbeard?
I put on my robe and wizard hat, so they don't expect that I am secretly a paladin of Freedom.
>>51746375>>-4 STR fightsYou know, I miss when those were actual shitposting fights and not people unironically arguing that all women are inherently weaker, dumber, slower, and in every single way inferior to even a clinically retarded, morbidly obese neckbear. That's not even funny, it's just depressing.
>>51746375>can't even discuss angry marines anymore without newfags screaming redditFucking depressing.
>>51746375I go through the archives and try to save and sort through all the lost OC drawfaggotry. Unfortunately, I haven't even made a dent in it, despite going through a years worth of content.
>>51746456If you find any lolicron images that aren't on 1d4chan, let me know. Some of those were my wife's.
>>51746506Main problem is that with the older threads, before the purge, only the thumbnail is archived, so if it was never posted again within the last few years, it's impossible to restore.
It was the culture of creativity and imagination, and of acceptance without coddling, that you find in the tabletop community that really changed my life. /tg/ exemplifies that. It was 13 years ago that I attempted to kill myself because of the pain of isolation and loneliness my life, and it was only a few months after that i was rolling dice with friends at a table. When I was destitute and dirty, but I had my books and my place to belong in gaming. I was not wealthy, I had no status, I had almost no hope, but I had my imagination. And that's all that mattered.Finding /tg/, in it's comforting burichan blue, with it's endless 40k talk and elf slaves and crazy stories, and vitally it's anonymity, was like being home for the first time, ever. Belonging. Being understood without needing to explain. Here, amongst my fellow neckbeards and autists, I was nothing more than the worth of my creativity and work ethic.So, thank you so much for being that place. Thank you for always derailing bait threads. thank you for the endless array of stupid ideas taken to extreme detail. Thank you for it all.
>>51746456I found a lot of nostalgic images in an old DakkaDakka thread when I did a google image search for "Commissar Shadowsun". I mean to look through my old (mac formatted) external HD sometime soon, too.
>>51740273Sweet poster, anon.
>>51745790when did people stop lurking? I remember joining BZPower a decade ago after lurking for over a year. And I spent three or four years going from reading 1d4chan, to reading the sup/tg/ archives, to finally lurking /tg/.
>>51740897/tg/: totally gay
>>51746849People stopped telling everyone to lurk more and newfags realized that there's no real consequence to not lurking.
>>51746849>when did people stop lurking?Most recently would probably be gamergate. The whole event just brought a bunch of trash in from other websites because they thought 4chan was some sort of secret fedora lord funhouse.I also blame people not following rules 1 and 2 though. I mean after a certain point it became impossible to really keep this website on the downlow with how crazy /b/ was getting back in the day, but after a while people just stopped even trying to hide their power levels.
>>51746319>that picThat's actually a brilliant idea. That dragon probably has a hoard so big, lending it all out would be self-defeating since that much gold flooding the market would devalue the currency like its nobody's business.
>>51746983thanks anon, now i have a boner.
>>51747029Isn't that the one about the guy fucking his girlfriend in the ass 'cause she's having her period, then fucking her bleeding cunt with his shit-covered dick?
>>51746976You realize that you are people too, anon. You can tell people.Most general threads have between 25 and 100 posters. Even one poster can have a huge influence, if they're consistent.Oh the other hand, there's no need to be too rude. Just tell people to learn the board and read before they start posting. Call out the lazy posters.
>>51747118I don't remember if there was anal, but I think he took his dick covered in period blood and drew Slaanesh's symbol on her back.
>>51747134I do though. I've actually been making an effort recently to put more work into the board and report more blatant shitposts to do my part.
>>51747152Reports are good for bait, but make sure to add quality content to a thread too. It drowns out the bait and the empty posts.Pic not related.
>>51747029>>51747118>>51747135Found the archive link. Post in question is ~25 posts inhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/40259536/
>>51747134So we should just sit in generals, and look for potential newfags to yell LURK MOAR at?
>>51747152>>51747134depending on how much you can post per day, you'd be surprised how great of an effect you personally can have on the direction of discussions and board culture in general when you set your mind to it.if you've been here long enough, you should know all the methods required.
>>51747204Generals are beyond saving really. The miscellaneous threads posted around here though are good spots. Just report the obvious bait posts, tell newfags to lurk moar, and contribute to the thread however you can if it's not a shitpost.
>>51747266Really all of the "Eternal" type threads are garbage. The Filename threads are worst of the bunch.
In case the thread is archived before I get back, I want to say this:I've never met any of you, yet I love (almost) all of you. Here's to another decade!
>>51746983>Someone using my screencapOn another note I love when threads get derailed on /tg/
Does anyone have that comic about the grandpa? You know the one.
>>51747581Jesus, screencapping your (you)s. What's it like having terminal cancer?
>>51747695I feel that hard.
Like the Lamenters, we made fade into memory, and we may be hated, and we may be distrusted.Like the Lamenters, we shall not yield to everlasting despair.Like the Lamenters, we shall fight on and on until we have reached our goals, whatever they might be.For boards that we cherish, we post in glory.Godspeed, /tg/. May the posts made here by the oldfags be remembered, that others might judge them and find them good, or find them wanting.Bump limit's almost here, boys. Let's resolve to make /tg/ better.
>>51744435>>51744350Wow! You wrote out a whole sperg word dump because you can't handle the fact that your sense of humor sucks.Sad!
>>51747922Its gotten to the point where I can't tell if this is bait or an actual opinion.Either way nice job proving the point.
>>51747695Jesus... I... Fuck.
>>51747981"Sad!" is a Trump Twitter quote that he used and people latched onto. If it was an actual opinion, he'd have typed out more things to say WHY it sucks instead of just a base "you suck" statement.Let him have it, anon. He cannot harm anyone unless we let him.
>>51744350>>51744435Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
>>51748377No point. It's almost midnight anyway, and some things should end eventuallydefinitely archive it though. Has anyone done that yet?
>>51748776doing it now
>>51748776any idea for a description?currently I have"On February 15, 2017, /tg/celebrates its tenth birthday by discussing memorable moments, and the state of the board. Here's to 10 more!"
>>51748831Sounds good. Everyone still reading... you know what to do to turn this board around.
>>51748503My nigga. I should have included that in the post, but you got my back.Thanks, C.S. Anon.
Happy birthday /tg/!I love you faggots!
As the thread draws to a close, I think it fitting to try to cap it off with an image related to OP's post.Where once there was one man who celebrated the 10th anniversary of /tg/'s inception, now there are more. May we all leave the thread with a bit of brightness in our lives, however fleeting.May we try to make /tg/ a better place, for old and newfag alike.I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.
Can someone link me the archived thread on suptg? I wanna vote it up.
screencapped for posterityanother version incoming
>>51749138Thank you, anon. I honestly didn't expect that to happen. I just wanted to let my feelings on the state of a board I loved, and on some level still love, be heard and judged on their own merits.It's sappy. But thank you, anon.
Archive link's up. Make sure to vote the thread positive
Here's to you, /tg/. You FLYING FUCKING NUGGETS.
This version is sure to make people mad.
>>51749380Let them have anger on their side, anon.We have neckbeards on ours.
>>51749380I love it.Also. Fuck this new captcha. takes too long.
Newfag here, happy birthday /tg/!
>>51749440You can put it back to oldschool capcha in the settings (select Legacy Capcha under Quotes & Replying)
I am glad that you are here with me, Anons. Here, at the end of all things.
