    52 KB My tale of /tg/ Anonymous 03/31/11(Thu)22:32 No.14434868  
    A little more than 3 years ago, I started to browse /tg/.

    Back then, it was a brand new board, and hadn't really formed an identity. I've stayed with this board for all this time, watching it, and myself, change over time. I've been a writefag, a drawfag, worked on homebrew games and other projects, and even ran a few very short lived quests. Overall, it's been a pretty amazing ride.

    There weren't that many people at first, and it was a pretty slow board, probably comparable to the speed of /lit/ right now. Back then, the only game I really played was D&D, so the major attraction of /tg/ for me was the speed of the posts, something that let me check out a thread in the morning and still manage to see that same thread later in the evening. Compared to the speed of other boards, where a post could disappear in less than five minutes, it suited me far better.

    I started to wander away from the other boards, and spent most of my time on /tg/. I learned about different games, listened to gaming stories, and enjoyed the occasional tomfoolery. I didn't post many of my own threads, since I didn't really have much to share. Occasionally, I told about what happened in a recent game, but I usually just lurked.

    Then, I had an excellent game, and had to tell about it.


    The game with Noh ended up launching a campaign out of it, and it lasted for about 6 months. During that time, I began working on my own homebrew game while DMing for a bunch of different groups. I also started to get into magic, but there really weren't that many people who discussed it on /tg/. You have to remember, this was the time of the Lorwyn block, which probably seems rather distant to most of us now.

    I mostly made threads about the different games I would be running, sometimes complaining about and sometimes praising my GM/players, but I was also interested in the culture that was starting to form.

    On /tg/, things had really settled into themselves. The sup/tg/ archive started to accept threads for archival at the end of Oct 2007, and some of my threads ended up getting archived. Most didn't, because the vast majority of all threads weren't archived, and I never really made any threads that were really worthwhile, even the ones that were archived.

    Here's a few from that time. I was a fair bit younger then, and I can't say I'm too proud of them.

    >Players will be players

    >10 tips

    >Playing Longer Lived Races

    After all this came a bit of a lull period, where I spent little posting on /tg/, as I was more focused on the games themselves. I tried a lot of different games during this period, and also tried a lot of different experiments within those games. I also went to several LARPs, where I learned a fair bit. However, boredom would always bring me back to /tg/.

    Around the time of Rubyquest, /tg/ changed dramatically. The speed of posting increased, as more and more people arrived, and the number of archived threads also rose. Following Rubyquest was a number of others, each of them expanding the definition of a quest.

    I kept making threads. some were based on my own experiences, a few were told to me by friends, and there was some fabrication as well. All the threads I made were purely to alleviate my boredom. Here's a few examples.

    >Better Learning through Cooperative Story Crafting I and II

    >A Kill 'em All Game

    >Photoshopping Ugly D&D Group
    This was particularly interesting, because I tried my hand at making up a story on the spot, which wasn't very easy for me at first. I started with the opening post, and then made several alternate conclusions, and a few people also ended up joining in on the brain-jamming.

    >Doobie Discussion Thread
    This was a pure and simple reaction to the odd Sergal fad that was being spammed during this time, which continued for months afterwards but eventually died out.

    >Big Sword Enthusiast Monthly

    Everything eventually lead to this thread
    >The adventures of the Fatguy outcast
    Which was my first attempt at really writefagging. It was hasty and sloppy, and basically best forgotten.

    When 4e came out, D&D changed for me, even though I had mostly been playing my homebrew game. /tg/ also changed, since D&D became a battleground topic, with every discussion becoming an argument over the editions.

    It was around this time that I also started drawfagging. I'm not particularly skilled, but I did have a tablet and some time, so I went ahead and started making threads. It was odd, because unlike writing (which can be done anonymously), drawing can't really be done without people figuring out who you are.

    Most of my drawthreads are gone from the archives, since it's sup/tg/'s policy to not keep drawthreads, but that's all well and good, because I could maybe do 5-6 drawings for each thread, which isn't a whole lot.

    At some point, I decided to draw an elf girl.

    That's really it. I drew the elf girl, and I made her hair have these two little strands that curled upwards. When I finished the doodle, instead of stopping, I just kept going. From there, I ended up making a comic, for probably no reason then I felt like it at the moment. I then made more and more comics featuring this elf girl, and I ended up not only recieving the moniker "Ribbonfag" but I started to get banned as well.

    For some reason, Ribbon pissed some people off. Yes, they were bad comics. Really, really bad. It was mostly me just fiddling around with my tablet out of boredom, and I must have rubbed one of the moderators the wrong way because I got banned when I tried to post a new comic. After the ban expired I tried again, and boom, another ban.

    This became predictable, but I didn't see anything wrong with what I was doing, and whatever grudge the person might have against me I felt that ignoring the moderator would be probably the best line of action. Sadly, they didn't feel like they could just ignore me.

    In any case, Ribbon is cute and harmless.

    I also tried my hand at a few pseudo-quests around this time. They were simple and stupid, but I enjoyed them, because something about a little girl troll that eats sage and grows up if you give her more sage appeals to me for reasons I will never understand.

    Time continued to pass. Magic started to become more popular on /tg/, and I found myself replying to more and more of them. 40k had a fixation on "characters" with Cultist-chan leading an increasing number of other -chans. There were now hundreds of quests, with 20-30 being run each week, with some continuing for months.

    I decided to try something. I started writing a story, one I expected to be about 5-6 posts, but it didn't stop. I just kept writing, and I realized that I had made an error.

    >Insanely slow and long horror story

    By the time I had finished, the thread had gotten to over 500 posts, and continued to over 600, which was rather impressive when you realize that the thread limit hadn't been expanded, and was still a measely 100 posts before autosage began.

    I also tried the same story, but proceeding from a different direction.
    It was mostly ignored.
    >> Anonymous 03/31/11(Thu)22:37 No.14434927
    I kept trying, thinking that a 600 post thread was a success, and that all others were failures. Of course, this was juvenile thinking, but I guess I still am rather juvenile. In any case, there were a lot of failures.

    >D&D taught me something

    >Crazy 8

    >I received from a giant a sword that was forged
    In truth, I really enjoyed this thread, though I can't take credit for more than the original post and a few others.

    >Insane Grandfather's Tests
    This was a return to just writing without foreseeing the end, and the major spin was that it had absolutely nothing to do with /tg/ beyond the loosest definition of a game. I realized that it still somehow managed to fit the audience, though I can't really call it a success.

    Then, I managed to strike post gold once again.
    >Being a Loser, How to
    This is a story I really regret that I hadn't stopped to work up a proper finish before I began it. Even so, it really managed to amaze me, because it managed to reach 850+ posts. This is in part because the post cap was increased to 250 before it started to autosage, though 600 posts after autosage is still pretty amazing.
    >> Anonymous 03/31/11(Thu)22:37 No.14434936
    Overall though, I was rather disappointed with myself. In an attempt to do better, I began to tell a story based on my experiences at a LARP. While writing it, my harddrive ended up failing, and I lost everything. The only things that survived were what were archived, which means I lost most of the stories I had written and a fair amount of the art I had drawfagged for people. This wasn't that bad of a loss, except for the LARP story which I had not yet finished.

    Thankfully, the first part had been archived, allowing me to finish it. With my computer broken (and having nothing else to do), I borrowed my uncle's laptop and wrote for an entire day, sun up to sun down.

    I felt like it was a complete story, and was satisfied. I was glad that people enjoyed it, and I saw it rise in the sup/tg/ rankings. Slowly at first, until it went high enough for me to decide it warranted a sequel.

    >Unofficial Sequel

    Unlike it's predecessor, I didn't base the Unofficial Sequel on my actual LARP experiences, and instead just went wild and crazy. I thought it was enjoyable as a farce, but it was clear that the people who were expecting a proper sequel were disappointed.

    Times had gotten rough for /tg/. Spam was everywhere, and the same troll threads would be made every day. Thankfully, captcha came and cut down the spam, and some new policy on moderation cut out the troll threads.

    I started to get banned again.

    Experimental threads are experimental, but they also tend to be controversial. Anyone who started a thread that could possibly offend people that got easily offended would be attacked by sagefags, and the moderators would typically solve the problem by banning the person who started the thread and deleting it. This meant that I got banned a lot for pissing people off, which I seem to have a natural knack for. But, my struggles with getting banned for posting Ribbon seemed to have paid off, since I didn't let these bannings dampen my spirits.

    When I wanted to test /tg/'s perceptions of fantasy races, I made a thread of 8 portraits. When those 8 became 16, I made another thread, and got banned. So, I kept going, all the way to 100, because I had questions to ask and information to gather, and getting temporarily banned was only for a few days at most, and even if the thread got deleted it would be preserved on easymodo.

    I made a few threads, but I spent more time replying to threads, bumping up the ones that interested me, in order to stay "beneath the radar." Even so, as the mods have a way of checking the IP address of any post, a few bans still ended up being slapped upon me, partly, I believe, because one of the moderators still has a grudge against me and still finds the time to ban me on the now rare occasions that I drawfag.
    >> Anonymous 03/31/11(Thu)22:42 No.14434977
    One thread in particular interested me. Someone had screencapped my LARP story, in 7 enormous pictures. Another person read the story in the morning, and was excited to find out that there was a sequel. He posted that he had waited all day to read the continuation in the evening, and then was severely disappointed to find out it had very little to do with the original, either in style or subject matter.

    I felt bad. I felt like I had ruined that person's whole day. So, I did what I felt I had to do.

    I started writing.

    At some point, I realized I had made a mistake. I write everything in notepad (it's what I'm writing in right now), which means I can't really judge length too well. It wasn't until I pasted what I had written so far into Word and discovered it was 40 pages that I realized it was too long, much too long for something that could be posted on /tg/. But the story was not finished, and I knew just how disappointing that was. So, I kept going, and going, until it went over 80 pages, nearly triple the length of the original story.


    Having finished, I felt like it was time for more exploration and experimentation. And, of course, more bannings. Finally, it seems that the moderator has grown tired of dealing with my tongue-in-cheek threads and lack of "proper" conduct, so I received a nice, permanent ban.

    Thinking that it was a good time to hang up my hat, I decided that a final thread wouldn't be too bad, since even a prisoner gets a last phone call. So, here's my story of my adventures within /tg/, and I hope that you can find the time to share YOUR story.

    Yeah, this is pretty damn impossible to trust. I mean, if one is a hell of a teller of tales, it's pretty easy to assume this is...yet another one, and may not be anywhere near the truth.

    It actually gets me thinking about my OWN contributions to /tg/, though. Mostly, it is very little. I lurk, i post sometimes, I rarely make threads that get anywhere. Oddly, the only thread of mine in the archives is the "let's start a magical girl game" one that got me started with a group over IRC and began my adventures as a crappy GM who never ran anything before.

    I'm okay at telling stories, in a bit of a rambling sort of way that gives lots of fun detail and tends to eat my posts because they're too long. Don't have any stories to tell ,beyond my old CTech game, because that shit was somehow memorable as all hell.

    I'm almost tempted to start a thread and regale the board with tales of my current campaign, which, true to form, is a spiritual successor to the one which started it all, and thus magical girls and assorted stupidity.

    As for me, I've only 2 real "accomplishments" of note; first, I started The thread that birthed Grendel. Just a recounting of how my D&D players murdered a future big-bad in a less-than-pretty way, asking for other /tg/ stories. The second involved an attempt to make a druid who could blizzard himself to the moon. I added a few feats and many, many calculations that put us over the highest modern skyscraper in 1 day.

    Good times.

    >I actually don't understand the skepticism.

    No? Well, I guess I can try to explain it then.

    On a board where providing yourself a name is totally optional for every post, including the security of your name, it is easy to be Anonymous and say whatever you like(regardless of truth or lie) without risk of ridicule. A place where everyone wears the same mask, it's easy to say you're that certain Anon under your mask, and just as easy to take credit for actions of an Anon.

    If you had a title you could truly call your own and were consistent with it, it would be easier to associate your tale to be nonfictional.

    There are advantages and disadvantages between Anonymity and Identity in a place like this, and consistency in facts is not one of Anonymity's strong-points.

    The "Eight people I hate" thread was inspired because I got the notion that I was absolutely certain that there was an anonymous poster who wouldn't leave me alone. Every time I made a thread at a particular time of day, I'd get almost the exact same sage post within seconds of the thread being made.

    When I realized how crazy it was for me to even bother to try and figure out whether it's the same person, I thought it would be interesting if someone DID manage to find out, and not just one person, but eight people.

    Thankfully, /tg/ took it and ran with it.

    I started reading this thread and was like "pffft" but then when I realized it was Ribbonfag there was something of an immediate reversal and so continued reading the story, enraptured.

    Regardless, I'm currently conducting a formal research project on /tg/, and on the topic of users, Ribbonfag is high on the list. This thread if true, serves as evidence to solidify it.

    Regardless, I'm on a tangent. I don't know if OP is still around to see all this, but I should like to hope he's not serious in leaving. It's be a shame to add Ribbonfag to the section of honorable mention rather than usual suspects.

    The order and timing was different and a few scenes were added for pacing and closure, and a lot of the boring stuff was omitted. The sequel didn't even all happen in one event, and it went nowhere nearly as smoothly as the story describes.

    In fact, there's probably enough material for a third part to the story, but it would probably need some pretty liberal changes to make it a solid story.

    It kinda depends on your interests/priorities as an artist, but judging from those who I've talked to a good amount of drawfags come here because they love to draw but aren't so great at coming up with ideas on their own to draw. It's different than taking requests on a standard forum or dA in that Anon does not have to worry about ruining their reputation for trying to request something the artist might enjoy drawing but don't have to deal with others think that their request was shit and have that on their reputation. Another thing is that /tg/ tends to have a considerably wide demographic when it comes to requests, and people seem to be more thankful here too than compared to some other forum or art-site.

    Granted, I may be over-analyzing the whole thing, so take it as you will.

    Not possible. Any /tg/chan would by nature have to be comprised of stuff that doesn't work well on /tg/. And a lot of that is perceived as shit by a lot of people. Hence why there's a lot on the existing tgchan that a lot of folks don't care for.

    It would seem that also disallowed is anything that the mod has any dislike for. And it's not like we don't get any garbage clogging things up with him here. Furthermore, neither proper drawfag threads nor proper touhou threads were ever cancer, especially not in the old days when they usually were proper, and elf sex slave threads were not something from old /tg/.

    We have always been at war with /v/.

    On cancer: the whole point of 4chan is that it's less ordered and restrictive than other forums. People call it the "asshole of the internet" for that very reason, but that's what made /tg/ great: with so many ideas being posted without fear of restriction, there were bound to be gems. With a large userbase, the gems get noticed. It's missing the point to censor it in more than the most superficial way.

    A bit revisionist yourself, as there were quite a few Touhou hijacks.

    What people REALLY don't recall is that the Touhou hate only started AFTER Touhoufag switched to 4e. Remember, before that he was a 3.5 player/gamebreaker. The whole "FUCKING TOUHOU" mentality really comes from edition-wars-by-proxy. Can't fight 4e, attack one of the guys making 4e good.

    I disagree that it's clear.

    I got a ban once for trying to start a thread about female space marines. It wasn't necessarily about 40k just the subject in general. I used this pic for the OP and got banned.

    I wasn't trolling, just looking for a discussion on scifi power-armored women, and then blam! ban.

    Bullshit. Touhou was spammed, sometimes just the plain series would be discussed and there was atleast 3 or 4 avatarfags.

    I don't think matt ward bitching is much better, mind you.

    I wish /tg/ had it's own OPchan, abeit one where all demographics could be accommodated properly.

    A homebrew board, a RPG board, videogames board, anime/touhou board, CCG board, wargames board and quest board would work out well. Oh, and drawfag board.

    Yep. I personally thing tgchan is pretty good, because pretty much everything is allowed.
    On the other hand, some folks dislike it because there are furries there.

    People have their own priorities, I guess. I'm okay with tolerating furfaggotry if it means freedom. Not that tgchan furries are anything like bad, as furries go.

    The new moderation does jump the gun, and new /tg/ isn't as good it was six months or even a year ago, but it's certainly an improvement on the post Wakfu spam-fests.

    You know, the old touhou hijacks were really not any more of a problem than the desire some people have to insert 40K in to everything. At some point, a few people started just spamming mediocre touhou pictures at random for no reason, and as much as I like touhou, I'll agree that that was bad. But there was good discussion of the setting in the old days, and that's what a lot of the best parts of /tg/ are, simple discussion of ideas and settings without any need to relate it to particular games.

    Honestly, I think the key thing is that it doesn't get mentioned here, very often.

    sup/tg/, tgchan, 1d4chan, tgbooru... you never really hear much of anything about these sites. It would be better if they got more press, 'cause when 4chan inevitably goes down, you'd get all that traffic moving there.

    That's why I come to 4chan to discuss /tg/ related things in the first place - Activity. These other sites don't have it. You're lucky to see a post an hour, where an hour on /tg/ will see your thread pushed 10 pages back if it goes without reply.

    I agree that some moderation has been good.

    At the base level people hate tgchan because it's a brakeaway site. It's only natural. Just look at literally any of the English *chans besides 4chan. They're hated viciously by 4channers for reasons they don't really have any basis for yet they do anyway.

    That and tgchan is like a super-sized version of old /tg/. It has all of it's good qualities along with several of it's bad ones. By that I mean furrys, namefags/avatarfags/tripfags, porn and other wierd things. That and tgchan seems to accept and appreciate those things where /tg/ hates it.

    That and the site moves so damn slow, but that could be solved by more users.

    Not gonna argue there. But it's at least not shoved into folks' faces. Except in a very few quests that nobody likes even on tgchan. Mostly, there can be characters with fur or whatever, but that's largely immaterial to actual content.
    There's a fair few because everybody knows who everybody else is anyway, with the IDs (instituted to prevent ballot-stuffing in quests) and IRC. I namefag there myself, because it actually allows greater anonymity, as nobody will bother to know my ID when I use a name, so I can drop it for greater anonymity.

    If there was one boon I could wish for /tg/, I'd be for people to be able to tell the difference between something posted that offends them, and something that was posted TO offend them.

    Touhoufag's posts were solid gold as far as being related to /tg/, it was just that they some people felt that his choice of images was meant to intentionally offend and enrage. ...Actually, the second thing I'd wish for would be for people to learn to not give a single fuck about things that don't interest them or that they don't like, and maybe be a bit more accepting or tolerant of diversity in the community.

    As for me, I mostly lurked my way though the last past four years. I started no major projects, although I did toss out ideas or helpful advice wherever I saw the chance. I never wore a nametag, so no one really knows me. I don't come here much anymore. After I graduated from college /tg/ was a way to keep my interest in traditional roleplay alive while I was groupless, but sense it looks like my gaming hiatus is getting more and more extended I've started to move on to other interests. I keep telling myself that I'll come back and finish up that dragon riding game I was working n, but I honestly don't know if that'll ever happen, and I don't know if I even feel all that bad about it. Now I occasionally brows /tg/, instead of obsessively lurking.

    /tg/ used to be something I needed, but now it's not. Still, thanks for all the great memories. It's been a blast.

    It was mostly because it had a good setting and writing.
    A lot of people, for better or worse, post things with really great setting and/or characterization on /tg/. Setting and characterization are /tg/-related as role-playing requires both, of course. And since this means that many fa/tg/uys are well-versed and very interested in such things, this is often a good place for such discussions.

I care about us being able to discuss things without the mod arbitrarily deciding what is and isn't allowed. Just because it isn't directly connected to a game doesn't mean /tg/ can't benefit from it. I doubt anyone with their head screwed on straight would claim that discussion of J.R.R. Tolkien's works don't belong here, even if not connected directly to a game. Lesser works that we can also benefit from discussing should be judged by the same standard.

    On the other hand, we have serious game setting threads, homebrew, fluff talk for various settings, and honestly uselful/fun advice threads. That's a step in the right direction.

    I don't mind wakfu being gone, and I don't mind moderation in general. But there's a clear line being crossed when contributing members are being banned. If this is true, it's clearly a pattern of behavior rather than just touhoufag.

    Tales of /tg/ thread at this point?

    Hmm I came around here when VIRAL MARKETING of cthulhu tech came around. I lurked like a scared rabbit afraid of posting anything and slowly just started to be helpeful, and troll.

    After a while I wanted to get into 40k and picked Dark eldars and did some scribblefaging as I wasn't good enough to be a drawfag, even took scribblefag as a name and ran with it. Drew some loli dark eldar and even touhou 40k to try and pull a reaction with. After that tried to make a 40k dating sim and failed. From there I actaully got into the irc group where I am today. Trolled some more, watch and help the second 40k dating sim go up and fail too.

    Not much happened there quest threads came and went and then mods came and /tg/ while being nearly porn free seems to not have much life left to it beyond endless bitching at the mods. I'd take endless edition wars at this point, it was /tg/ doing something besides be meta like this thread with a side of 'this happened, tell similar stories' which generates little talk that isn't quickly forgot, but I'm not even going to sage this so just part of that cancer.

    Right now trying to help with adeva and work on my own few projects, on of which being a retool of DH for some mecha musume blasting. If I wanted anything more here would actually try and discuss game mechanics more and that there were a few people with nearly professional talent would take some time to draw up our insane ideas.

    I have to say it. I am on tg for about two years now.

    one year ans something of more regular browsing and lurking. And If there is something i observed is that shit is needed for awesome!

    You want AWESOME! you have to swim trough a lot of SHIT!
    Ergo in my opinion janitors and mods should fuck off tg , and come in only on request regarding a overly pesky problem, if such a request came from multiple different user IP's preferably that do not repeat themselves at any previous offence?

    Why? because if some say three people get offended than they should not browse it. There are others who browse it and they would not rate it some stupid shit or write to mods about it, because they lack the motivation.

    Ergo something lower than about t say 20 or a dozen users IP should be disregarded as a non issue.
    Moreover if the Same IP's state multiple problems over a low amount of time ( say two months five problem same 12 or 20 IPs) they get disregarded for ever and ever from the report function because they clearly are either over-sensitive psychos or have a agenda...

    since said system is most likely unimplementable due to mod fiat and complacency of typical board related administrative function

    I can't believe this thread is still around. The rise of new mods/janitors is due to the rampant shit all over 4chan.
    Still, /tg/ has gotten very sterile in the past few months.

    Oh, they'll get to it.
    They just had to get rid of this one first:

    Well that makes sense. Warhammer 40k obviously doesn't belong on /tg/.

    That thread was completely full of trolling.
    Well, either trolling or people GENUINELY getting upset over:
    --some people believing that 40k works best as a parody
    --other people believing that 40k has changed focus away from parody since it's birth

    Either way, it deserved to be put out of its misery.

    Woah, this thread is still alive. I remembered the Giant Gave Something threads, and the Pick Your Party threads. I've now come to think of /tg/ mainly as the place where creative thought pooled, albeit the obvious drawbacks (40k all day erry day). But yeah, I agree that the mods are a wee bit too tyrannical on some stuff. Stuff what generated creative unique content are sometimes stifled. But the positive side is all that extremely NSFW threads get nerfed big time.

    I also want to use this rare opportunity of posting in a metathread to apologize to whoever ever got offended by my posts, even if only slightly.

    As for Ribbon, dude, you will be missed. Let it be known that most of the competent, content-making posters of /tg/ would probably put you as a role model, or at least a good guy in their books. Keep on truckin' man.
