Do you think that IRC could somehow be integrated into an imageboard? This is a very abstract question, but I'm curious on any theories as to how it could look. Back in the older days of the internet it wasn't too unusual to have a "ticker" of sorts on the side of a page that would show simple text discussions, but I wonder how it would look attached to an imageboard. Would it compete too much with the imageboard itself?

Cool frames thread special edition

1) Show must be from the past 10 years
2) Frame must not be from the op or the ED, transformation sequences allowed
3) Please don't put anything that's very blatantly a huge spoiler (like a character dying or a final transformation).

The fall season is fast approaching, and with it comes another whole new lineup of anime! For the first time in a while this lineup's actually got me somewhat excited with promising entries like the Higurashi remake, Gochuumon S3, and Strike Witches S3 (David Production what the hell) which I know I'll like. Other than those I still have a good amount of hope for some of the other things airing, like adaptation of a series by the Lucky Star author or the new Shaft/Dogakobo show. And the rest I'll probably be at least checking out as well. How about /qa/? Is there anything in particular you're looking forward to this upcoming season?

How often does /qa/ have nightmares?

I seem to have them pretty frequently. Probably every forth dream or so. It's a bit unsettling for me, because oftentimes absolutely terrible things will be happening but I'm unable to wake up. I suppose it's only reflexively unsettling though, since I never seem very bothered in my dreams themselves. I'll be stabbed, experience a mass shooting, or watch someone be killed, but I don't actually feel any terror in the moment. I'm not really sure why that's the case because I'm actually pretty skittish and easily frightened in real life.

How often do you drink coffee. Is it safe to consume high concentrations several times a day? I probably had 3-4 cups of coffee (3 teaspoons of folgers instant mix) per cup. I should also mention over a spam of maybe 8 hours. I was extra sluggish this morning, but previously i had around the same dosage yesterday and the day before that. I get weird feeling in my abdominal region sometimes

will this kill me? I just wanted to do something different for a change (ie be productive)

Have you ever considered that you think that your "self"/"soul" has control over your body, but it is in fact a feeling that is fundamentally no different from feeling warm, tired etc?
A human body follows the rules of physical and chemical laws just like everything in the universe do, so the state of a body at a later time can be fully determined by the current state.
Your "self"/"soul" is nothing but a passive observer that can sense the "feeling" of your body which is determined by your body state.
Like the feeling hot or cold, happy or sad, and also the *feeling* of having a control over your body's motion.
Overall, we think we can control our body and decide what to do with our lives but this is just an illusion. The only purpose of our selves is to observe the sufferings our bodies experience.

Would kissu be interested in playing Factorio together?

The 1.0 is coming out on August 14th, and it's got no DRM so the crack with multiplayer will probably be out the same day. It can support a boatload of people in multiplayer games and shouldn't be too difficult for people to get into with a bit of help. There's a lot that people can do that'll allow everyone to do something if they want, and at a sufficient level people can laze around and take it easy as all the resource gathering and defense automates itself.

I'm not sure if this is new, but I haven't seen it before. They seem to be sample voice recordings of people looking for friends, although there are sometimes short song covers. Most of them seem to have very few followers and, if their age is written or implied in their biography, are usually around 18. Has anyone seen this before?

I have a friend who speaks Japanese fluently who used to use a website dedicated to finding friends to set up Skype (group) calls with. He said a lot of the people on there were weird and would frequently be awake at 4 or 5am Japan time. Maybe it's that, as the second hashtag I linked seems to be something like that.

Lights in the sky, strange patterns in sunspots, visitor's pass through gaps in the magnetic field. The whole reality builds to a frenzied, boiling culmination. A run away engine tearing apart by its own disperate forces. Whole epistemologies stretch to pieces as if intangible energies pull at metaphor itself. And invisible networks of value, and every other conclusion so to no one left can even tell properly what is happening or happened. A disaster so total in concept it leaves no witness. Birds fly in strange circles, and ant colonies collapse. How can we hope to survive?

Pick an imageboard script, find a site running it, and post any interesting features you find.

You can find imageboard software with existing instances on:
https://github.com/ccd0/imageboards.json/blob/gh-pages/software.md
Then search for the code in

to find an imageboard running it.

Supposing magic existed, I wonder if like in most media and things technological progression really would plateau and stay at a medieval level. Likewise, I wonder if mages would just exist as their own "class" akin to a knight or if perhaps they themselves would become the ruling aristocracy because they would possess an ability which makes them infinitely stronger than those not able to use magic.

What does /qa/ think? Would technology really keep progressing even without an implicit need for it to do so if magic could fill that void?

It's a very slow burn, first volume is just the MC (as a shota) growing up and being able to develop firearms.
It's alright, writing could be better (or rather, translated better). It's has a very slow start so just like, warning and all that.

/gg/ - General General #5?

Previous thread: >>fuckIunno

The term general has the surprisingly commonplace problem of referring to multiple things that get mixed up.
Originally there was general discussion, some topic that was discussed in general. This historical site from what appears to be 1992 mentions alt.lucid-emacs.help as a place for general discussion of its namesake: https://www.w3.org/History/19921103-hypertext/hypertext/DataSources/News/Groups/alt.html , and 1993 book The Virtual Community also briefly mentions it as a part of newsgroups: https://www.rheingold.com/vc/book/4.html
The oldest dates I can find for the usage of "general discussion thread" in forums are from 2002 (https://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/f226/swedish-residences-general-discussion-18856.html , https://www.neoseeker.com/forums/935/t62714-should-we-have-general-discussion-thread/ clearly the term was well known by then) while the shorter "general thread" might be from around '07 (searches are clogged with hardware stuff, if anyone has evidence of it being used earlier I'd appreciate it). Both simply meant talk about a topic in general. The opposite of a general discussion thread would be a "particular" discussion thread which focuses on something specific instead of a broadly chatting about a topic (e.g. would goku be able to beat superman?). It is important to note that a thread can open as a particular but smoothly derail into a general. The opposite can also happen if a particularity is prominent enough to overtake the thread.

Now, imageboards.
Typically, general threads start with a declaration that it is an X thread and a prompt, or just the declaration. These generally last a lot less than they would in a traditional forum, a popular general discussion thread won't be able to live for five years. Of course, if there is continued interested then more threads will be made. Maybe a lot of them. Some of those threads' OPs may have links pointing to new content or frequently posted guides, maybe quotelinks to the next or previous thread to continue the discussion more easily.
Although there had been prior protests against duplicate threads, it's not until 2010 that people started complaining about both "eternal threads" and constant generals. This is one of its oldest instances, which coincidentally likens generals to forums: https://desuarchive.org/a/thread/40944031/#40944503 . I think at that point there was an increase in the amount of general threads and a change in how they were approached or perceived, changing the meaning of the word as well. I wouldn't be able to tell you the details, though. From there, only two years passed until the creation of /vg/, made for the new general.

Just finished watching Gleipnir. I don't understand why the ghost of Honoka is trying to kill MC-Kun? Has it been explained in the anime, was I too dumb to understand it? As far as I know, the only explanation given was by the ghost itself in the last episode where she says something like "I'm seeking only the ones with a relation". If she was going around killing anyone that knew or was related with the group or any of its individual members, why hasn't she killed Elena and that other guy yet?

Finished my first draft of my novel, feels really good to finish it first thing in the morning.
That was really it, I don't know what else to really say, I managed to write a fun story that's about a man being used as a pawn in a greater scheme, and defeats his own personal demon he created and dies in the process of it.
It's very much a mess but I did enjoy writing it, now I just have to edit it all up.
Thanks for reading my blog, I had a great time writing this story these last couple of months (think three months?) and I learned that turning off the internet and just working on it is much better then getting into petty pissing matches on the internet.

This kind of thing seems all too common nowadays. If it weren't for the fact that nearly 1 in 10 people in the US now can't or haven't been making their rent the past few months I'd suggest getting some kind of legal counsel and filing a legal suit but that seems an impossible prospect given the circumstances. Besides scummy stuff like this happening, it also makes me wonder just how many independent artists have been screwed over the past few months since a lot seem to have a day job outside of music.

Domineering

Has /qa/ played domineering? It's a simple game played with dominoes on a board. One player places dominoes vertically and the other horizontally. Dominoes can't overlap or go off the board. Players take turns placing dominoes until the next player has nowhere left to place a domino and therefore loses. You could play it on an imageboard fairly easily by filling in squares in an PNG image of a grid of squares.

If you want to try playing against a computer, there's a reasonably challenging AI (with multiple difficulty settings so you can set it to easy if you want) at
https://staff.fim.uni-passau.de/kreuzer/Spielesammlung/Spielesammlung/Domineering/index.html

There's an option to block input for 2 seconds after you take major damage so you don't get yourself killed with impatience, too. And some other big roguelike stuff that makes it a bit less tedious to play. Very cool!

Does /qa/ play Shakes and Fidgets? I used to play it a long time ago on the browser, but now that its on steam, I'm thinking of creating a new account and starting over. Anyone else plays/wants to play it? I've created the new account in international world 43. Maybe we could create a /qa/ guild and slay newbs.

It is
>a fun fantasy satire of role-playing games and an award-winning role-playing game at the same time!
I don't really know how to explain the gameplay though.

I wish there was some way to empirically score anime releases. Most public trackers don't give any indication of quality other than what can be surmised from filesize. That said, even when it comes to screenshots, they don't tell the whole truth either. Likewise, there's an ingrained incentive in private trackers to seed larger torrents so as to gain more ratio. That's all really a shame because it means that supposing a group re-releases something better encoded than other releases, it may be overlooked because its filesize is lower, causing people to think it may be inferior and low-bitrate.

Why won't Japan make their own twitter equivalent already.

Japanese users are annoyed by sockjuice policing and shoving their horrid aesthetic sense everywhere.
Sockjuicers are annoyed by the japanese posting problematic content, doubly so because of their inability to retaliate fully due to the impenetrable language barrier.
The two do NOT fit on the same platform.

Stand down, Guts, we've got a new worst CG "anime" of all time contender. Even the griffin looks horrendous.
I think shitty companies like Netflix attaching "anime" to everything to give it extra appeal are going to turn the word into a liability if they keep pulling this crap.

Would /qa/ be interested in watching Nichijou together? Its worth a watch if you havent seen it yet and a nice easy anime to relax to

The evolution of gigachad is somewhat interesting.
The term itself is older than today's meme, its oldest mention I found was from June 2014 /r9k/. Looks like it simply meant a super chad. It wouldn't become linked to the monochrome models until around October 2017. Later that year, there would be a trend of posting dyel-looking folks uncharacteristically asking for videogames or anime. Gigachad of course found his way into it: https://yuki.la/v/401498743
In 2018 there was another trend that used ripped men, the original "how could you tell" of which gigachad became its icon. The anti-soijak, more or less.
Fast forward to early-mid 2019 and gigachad's become very popular. At this point there was an offshoot focused on exaggerating his looks à la giganigga but it wasn't as popular as the main branch and nowadays it's rather dead.

And that's basically the meme's history, I think. "How could you tell" has endured and is close in popularity to soijak, while also seeing the usual franchise edits. I was surprised to see it's almost three years old, I remembered it being a lot more recent.
Any other things whose evolution you've been keeping an eye on? It's neat stuff.

I have a discord account and am in 14 different servers, yet I have no friends and no one to talk to. Do people even make friends over discord or any other group messaging services? The people who made that server and the starting members are really the only ones who can and do talk in such places. Unless you're an extremely social person, anyone trying to butt in becomes the third, fourth or whatever-th wheel, especially if they have a lot of inside jokes/references. I like anonymous imageboards because anyone can talk to anyone and (usually) no one knows the other person. You could be having conversations in every thread and you wouldn't even know it. You could be having an argument in one thread and getting along in another thread at the same time.
You could argue that imageboards also have inside jokes and unique culture that "newfags" will not know about, but because they're anonymous, they can trial and error as much as they want without anyone knowing how many times they failed. You can post a shit post, and if it doesn't get any traction or if you get shit on for it, you can simply disassociate yourself from it.
Anonymity is beautiful but alas, you can't make friends from anonymity.

The ideal in argumentation/discussion/language is to be as concise and precise as possible, yet extremely lengthy essays and such on topics or theories persist. Am I missing something, or is being succinct not what's truly preferred.
