>>29559324>I had almost forgotten about her. What happened to us /tg/? We used to make original characters all the time. Now the newfags don't even know who Cultist-Chan is.
People lost their innovation and replaced it with hostility. This place used to be able to talk about whatever the fuck, get help making systems, ideas, whatever.
Then the NaziMod era came forth, and drive away pretty much all the good ol creative folks in the great blue-board ur-banning.
We used to have writing contests challenges, pieces of fiction, honest to god feedback without the word fag and waifu being thrown around constantly.
but most importantly? The oldfags grew up.
The current generation is a pale imitation, so driven by rage at things they hate about the board (quest threads, waifu-shitters, namefags, etc) that they have forgotten how to have fun, and more importantly, respect other people's fun.
You know the (F)LGS stores that are all full of the the same, shut-in, jingoistic neckbeards that play their favorite stuff and aren't tolerant of new people playing in 'their' store?
We've fallen to That Store. Except online.
How do we fix it?
I don't know, but moving the board away from the blue/sfw would be a good place to start. a lot of creativity was blown away by nazimodding, and making that kind of player want to come back is the first step.
My personal hate, though(and i'm not ashamed to admit it), is people who use the word Waifu. The neckbeards of this board have always been the kind who cannot into deeper relationships and feelz very well - but its given everyone, even the people who are moderately socially inclined - a word to bitch about/with, instead of using other, better, more different words in their stead - and thats where the heart of good storytelling lies. Its a big red bloody thorn in the side of not just character development, but the potential for it.
