i know we're a looooooooong ways off from ending up that bad, but i was just wondering how many of you are a wee bit afraid that things will descend that badly quickly if a lot of mods arent created soon

dont get me wrong, i like 4chan a lot. but i cant stand that kinda crap all the time. sometimes i feel like posting about things in a more intelligent matter on a site far away from goatse

It was inevitable that if would happen sooner or later. Getting mods is a good thing.

It's not that bad so far other than the "You fap you lose" threads...
 I doubt GB will turn into another Chan.

No it's not that bad. We have what, 7 mods now? They've been locking threads like nobody's business..... and they don't have full mod tools yet.

I don't think you have to worry about 4chan standards here.

I don't think it's close to being that bad, so I'm not really worried.

Just because the forums aren't being run with an iron fist doesn't mean there aren't  moderators watching.

No, we don't.  The forums are largely hands off at this point, we want to see what the community will do and let them run with it, to a certain extent.

Some members can't be trusted with the freedom. We definitely need some rules, and I think the mods should be stricter. It's not ideal, but I'd much have a mature forum then one ruled by immature spammers.

thats not really that hard

the way i see it, 4chan isnt just made up of people posting without rules, its actually made up of a special demographic. actually, its kinda creepy how like minded so many people there are. like on /v/ basically everyone is in agreement about what games they like. the only people who disagree are just flaming. hell, even when the users describe their lives they're all very similar

i'd know, i'm part of that demographic.

I don't think GB will fall that low, but I do hope that there are some more mods set into place soon. I am glad that some of the really bad stuff got cleaned up, that guy that was posting all the obscene stuff in the first few hours...I already forget his name, but he was just rediculous!

How would more mods make things different than they are now?  There could be twice as many mods and the same topics would still exist...the users make the community, not us.  We're just here to take care of the people that are acting like little bitches.

Apparantly it wasn't a DDoS attack.  The FBI put trackers in the 4chan Data Base.  Which I don't mind because CP is wrong.

There are a few more mods now, aren't there? And that doesn't scare me at all, I'm pretty sure that the staff would rather close the forums indefinitely than let that happen.

CP is banned there. Just because a few idiots post it rarely doesn't mean the FBI can close it.

...can they? And if so why the hell isn't 12chan closed? That's a full pedo forum, or so I've heard.

It hasnt come to that just yet :? and i dont think it will. The mods have been doing a really good job cleaning the site of all the spam and trolls. We just need ppl to follow the rules and stop ruining it for the rest of us who actually follow the guidelines.

I think its fine the way it is....as long as there isn't porn and nothing distasteful and gory it should be allowed. As long as it isn't spam and its obvious the original poster inst being a complete idiot/trying to get banned it should be allowed aswell.

7chan, 12chan, 4chan, anonib and 2chan are where we should send people that are mentally ill. It will balance them out.

I think we're fine. I like their approach because the less moderation and officialism and the more free speech the better. Gotta keep out the assholes that just feel like spamming porn threads but I think this approach makes it have that more informal feel I really like.

Well, first of all we have mods. Second, as we can all tell from certain spammers, we don't take kindly to them. Therefore, no.
