I'm sure it's terrible now, but I haven't posted on 4chan in nearly two years and the reason has nothing to do with the fact that the site is garbage; it's just that the captcha is absolutely unbearable. At some point after clicking through the 10th or 15th disappearing car image (and somehow failing to get verified) I just had to ask myself what the fuck I was even doing there. I still check specific threads on /jp/ every once in a blue moon, but I find 4chan to be unusable on a technical level now.
Oh, I was able to stand that for some time since I just used noscript captcha, but now even that's gone.
I remember telling people that the natural state of /qa/ was barneyfag bait, politics and meaningless /q/ whining.
It's just back to "normal" now with an ever-vigilante staff to ensure it stays that way
>>3758> akin to how I'd view /bant/ back in the days when 4/qa/ was thriving (/bant/ was better but that matters not
What made you view /bant/ as better than /qa/? I felt far too much of a generation and culture gap and couldn't relate to anyone there
No that's what I meant, I was just clarifying that I found /bant/ when I looked at it back then to be better than current 4/qa/. Probably wasn't necessary though.
Oh. Yeah. That's a reeeeeaaaaaally low bar
Went to visit 4/qa/ just to see what it's like now and I'm still rangebanned. Wonder if that will ever go away.
My global rangeban was lifted, but I get speedy ban evasion bans if I ever post on 4/qa/. It's kinda hilarious to see which horrific threads are actively moderated- it makes me think many of them have staff participation
/bant/ was basically just a bigger version of /qa/ fights.
It was, and that was all it was. That's why I never liked /bant/
4chan's issue is that everyone who cares ends up leaving. As soon as a spinoff shows up that offers the same content but with more focused moderation and administration, everyone fucks off there, leaving the original board a shell of its former self.
