Guten Abend, as you're aware /int/ is seeing an influx of board refugees that will last until at least Monday. Now that's fine in itself but on the last EC this caused a problem wherein the old communities general threads were pushed off of the catalogue.

There is plenty of time until anything active would be hit and it might not even be necessary but if thread creation picks up it could be. In that event would you consider placing a sticky on these:

Guten tag, would you please remove the italic function for words surrounded by asterisks(*)?

We already have the code after-all so it appears superfluous and interferes with the asterisk enclosure’s common internet usage as signalling physical actions. I understand that italics may be used in stage writing for this purpose but I feel italics are much more commonly (and better) used to solely indicate emphasis.

Words surrounded by asterisks(*), more asterisks(**), underscores(_) and so on belong to WakabaMark markup code, which was supposed to be introduced later.
You can learn all the features from the picture. If users decide to drop support of WakabaMark, it will be removed.

This is the thread, where we set out new rules. Let's discuss every aspect of posting, how you should post and you shouldn't post.
No. 176
I don't know exactly where to draw the line either. Too tough you're going to discourage the regulars from maybe making an attempt to be funny or make some levity, and either way newcomers, plain old shitposters will just do so because such is in their nature.

The only real suggestion I can make would be if some /kc/ splinterchan goes down maybe make like 7ch and shut down for a couple of days in order to head them off. It may confuse people that don't check in everyday and would require the mods and admins to be on top of such places at the sake of their own sanity but it would also prevent newcomers from finding the site as easily, good or bad.

There is no easy solution. It seems like every imageboard, subsection or subculture gets overrun eventually.

>and shut down for a couple of days in order to head them off
Why so rough, though?
It's possible to whitelist certain IP ranges and not let other IP ranges into.
Would it be right? EC had accepted refugees from KC and some of those refugees were happy to acknowledge when EC has stood up again.
It's hard to keep the same quality of discussions, if possible, when number of newcomers exceeds number of original posters, but currently we are not endangered.
No. 178
I am KC refugee and I work hard to post long form quality posts.
The board is very good as it is, hopefully we will slowly trickle in more posters.

> new rules
Sadly it won't help. The only thing that would help is some kind of quality control and that is near impossible because shitposters often think their posts are brilliant and their opinion is worth something.

How do you fight a mentally unstable person sitting in his damp apartment posting 24 hours a day? When you arrive at the front-page and all you see is mentally retarded shit you tend to go away even if the posts adhered to the rules.

Even mods have better things to do then monitor threads 24/7 and when they finally take action there is a shitstorm of "people" asking why the retards was banned.

Are we allowed to create genre-specific music threads or do all discussions on music have to be consolidated into the large main general music thread? Let's say I wanted to discuss Industrial, Metal or Punk broadly, all subgenres that've seen decades of evolution and have bequeathed thousands of bands in their respective fields. It would seem counterproductive to bottleneck all musical discussion into a single thread as those who simply want to share links to favorite songs would be displaced by others who want a more elaborate discussion about a specific subject.
No. 170
I found that when i've tried to create genre-specific threads in the past, the topicdiverges anyway. It's because there's so many random genres that everyone will know to different degrees and even different definitions. It'll be particularly difficult to make a thread like this with EC not being as active as it used to.

I would recommend just very broad threads - electronic dance, or ambient, classical instrumental, etc., that way the thread can grow and explore more
