you dont need to worry bout them no more amigo
youre in too deep
reddit dare not tread this far into the altchanosphere
only thing you need to worry about now is people LARPing as reddit for comedic effect/personal tism
the correct way imo
to deal with malfeasance is incessant bullying, not hotpocketry
suppose its one thing if its board wiping spam and/or shit thats purposefully trying to get the server seized CP or shit like that
, but in terms of "posts i dont like", the best way is bullying
ironically, the best example of this i can think of and also the best vidya board i can think of
in recent memory was 8/vg/ from about early 2017 iirc
up until the bitter end
now i know>"how can a general board be not gay and not rulecucked?"
and i still
dont have an answer for that
but it just worked™
you remember blackpillnigger?>entirely redtext schizo rants of "muh vidya is OVER/jews WON/look at this chart" etc etc
used to absolutely terrorize /v/
i remember he would stop by /vg/, and we would just bully his shit into the dirt, tell him we didnt give a fuck because we all pirated everything, and all played old games w mods anyways etc.
eventually he calmed his tits and became a regular poster
was a vidya board….
the basic rough outline of having threads based on certain games/types of games was all that was necessary. mods were very rarely seen nor heard.
i remember the stalker threads were incredibly based, frequently going off topic for weeks at a time to discuss anything from 911, the holocaust, to beans, to tungaska, to chernobyl itself, then suddenly anon would swing by with his manual fixes to miserys stealth mechanics and without even realizing it, the thread would be about stalker again.
or how about the time anon infiltrated the boomer jpeg cartel and unironically played the scam citizen alpha? screencapping his epic journey for all of us, at great personal risk to his own life?
it was the home of the radmod devs, and the game night lobbys were always full.
actual unironic OC flowed like water, uninhibited by the rampant faggotry that had infected the rest of the site since the election.
idk, the place had camaraderie that i had thought was thoroughly beaten out of 8gag years prior, but there it was, just sitting there on a legacy board that everyone had forgotten aboutTL;DR
its possible to have both imo
a board about vidya, as well as a board with unironic freedumbs
you just need a good crew, and mods/BO that isnt narcissistic and interested in cultivating a cult of personality around themselves RARE
