No, it wont. Early /b/ had memorable shit that was actually FUNNY and worthwhile to save. That's why people reminisce about it, even with the rose tinted goggles effect. Old /a/ was decent too, but now discussion doesn't delve much deeper besides rolling threads, imagespamming, >my face faggotry, and the big 3. You have like 2-3 decent contributors who rarely post anymore, and the rest of the time the board is full of shit.

From the way you talk it seems like you don't actually spend much time on /a/. It's not really like that. Rolling threads have been banned and are almost entirely gone now, imagespamming died down, and big three was not as spammed as people say (until about two weeks ago when summer really started up). There are quite a few good posters. Ironically even though I've mained /jp/ since the split and mostly just troll on /a/, I'd even venture to say that /a/ really is a better board than current /jp/, which is nothing but a playground for the fucking tripfag club and a landing pad for whatever faggots are raiding us this day.

People keep making threads about /jp/ following in /a/'s footsteps, but I just don't think it's possible for /jp/ to die with all of our veterans from old /a/. /jp/ers know what it's like to see a board die; hence the reason why we do everything in our power to stop the spread of /a/, /v/, and /b/ culture.

I can't say anything about the troll rating, but I will say that is pretty fucking asinine to post to a directory if you hate it, more than that, to post to a directory you hate about why you fucking hate it.

Why would I subject myself to such a horrible piece of shit willingly? I visit the board occasionally, but shit moves too fast to even look at a thread for more than an hour, and things die so quickly that I barely catch a glimpse of what's going on. It's not like whatever was there was worthwhile to look at anyway (god forbid I need to know ANOTHER reason why Ichigo is an emo faggot), but the speed at which it moves obviously doesn't help.

If Eksopl really hates keeping the archive there, then he should at least remove /a/ and see how that works, maybe it'll make his life a lot easier and it'll make him actually enjoy keeping the archive alive. If it doesn't, bye bye easymodo.

A few shitposters make us look bad. I could name them all on my left hand, but doing such would only feed their inner manchild. Unlike /a/, a board that has 'some' moderation, /jp/ is practically anarchy. (Which roughly translates to: any retard with a tendency to rupture can pretty much destroy /jp/.)

To add insult to injury, the few mods who do visit here don't understand what actually belongs here. (Most of the time they have no choice but to wing it like our janitor does with 'certain' /v/ threads.) Thanks moot for the shitty constitution you gave us.

I was (sadly) involved in the creation/popularization of troll ratings back in old /a/. I used an American style grade system with a small teacher-esque sentence (See me after class, etc) to grade troll attempts. I remember this other guy rated trolls with stuff like "1 out of 5 ninja shuriken" and had corresponding images for it too.

It just went from there. /v/ friends devolved it into crap like a "rage meter," it basically has no meaning nowadays. Never heard the term "post rating," though.

One of the reasons why we are seeing an increase in meta threads is because there's nothing to talk about. Say what you want about Double Spoilers, but it didn't attract the type of discussions a normal Touhou game would attract. There aren't any new VNs that have been translated either.

Also, we are the oldest userbase on 4chan. Even before /jp/'s conception we had already discussed everything that was possible to discuss on old /a/. I think it's about time we went the way of the Anons of old-old /b/.
