TL;DR I got fired from being a janny a few months ago, and after talking to some people about it recently, I want to discuss this somewhere. Is this the best place? Is there a better board here? Or is this not a good website, period?
What's the best altchan?
I want to talk about 4chan moderation somewhere, but if I do that on 4chan I'll be banned. I saw an old post on 8ch.net which I liked, and I'd like to discuss stuff that's on there too.https://archive.ph/2018.08.18-101120/https://8ch.net/irc/res/6927.html
There's also new information since then (2018):https://www.wired.com/story/4chan-moderation-buffalo-shooting/
Anyway, it really seems like the prevalent mindset is "let the website rot", under the guise of "this is just how we've always done things". If you try to put in any extra effort and use the extremely limited (for no good reason) tools to convey a message to the users that quality posts are preferred, you will be targeted by your higher-ups for the possibility of being fired. The head honcho in particular seems to be extremely broken and enjoys his power trip. He does not care about the website, he probably only cares about being right. Somehow it's always these kinds of people that rise to power in this online communities, it was the same for MangaHelpers as well, and other discords I've been in. I guess only the people who have no life are the only ones who would spend that much time sucking online dick to get to "the top" of a cesspool?Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
