Honest question, /jp/:

Is there any other board name you would prefer for /jp/ that isn't either japan/general or "otaku culture"?

I, for one, would much prefer going back to the original.

/jp/ is just /b/ lite for otaku culture. /b/ is all things welcome, and /jp/ is all things otaku welcome. It turned into /b/ lite a while ago, but people keep whining and still think this board has a purpose or real topics. I wish we could get moderation to delete the board and make vn go to /v/ and touhou go to /v/c/b/e/h/ or allow it to actually flourish as otaku randum.

While I prefered the original name because it was a more uninteresting name. Yes, there was alot of stupid "Oh hay guys why X in Japan so Y XD?" or things like it.
But Japan in itself was still alot less interesting, especially when /a/ etc could take some of the load away by also being Japanese related, at least in in-direct ways.

"Otaku" however, while not the worst name for a board consisting of nerd interests. Thinking "anything 'otaku' is related" however would be incredibly stupid and it might be one of the most superfluous rule on the entire site as it doesn't say shit, and is inaccurate.

But while I probably do/did prefer the original name, and possibly could think of others.
I believe I am rather against namechanges related to this board whatsoever.

The whole "OH WOW GUYS!! THIS BOARD WE NEVER CARED ABOUT CHANGED ITS NAME, AND GUESS WHAT!? IT HAS CONTENT!" was horrible, and the off-topic and or raids skyrocketed, and it have had a long term effect on the board.
So no, changing the name every year won't do it. Let's just keep low until no one cares about the name anymore.

While I could see what you are getting at, first of all I would point out how "Eroge" has a criteria of erotic content. But it also brings up the point that if one excludes eroge and says something like VNs, then Eroge not in the form of VNs would be left out.

But thing is, no name for this board could accurately describe the content, just most of it. However, if one got a name describing most of the content, people would go all hate on whatever related thing that could possibly be left out of the name, because obviously, board name = all the content, to most people.

/tg/ is actually an interesting board, because "Traditional Games" really doesn't say much, and it really doesn't cover all of its content, and what is "Traditional" and not is even a smidge arguable.
One simply needs to learn over time what is related or not.

To understand what is /jp/ related one basically have to understand what wasn't considered "/a/ enough/ at the time of the split, and then have some insight on how the communities took this at the time of the split, and what happened. That's what /jp/ is, and it certainly isn't random, far from it, but it isn't under one label either.

We still need to get this blue color away and make it 18+ though. That way we'll get rid of most of the shit posters who obviously are below 18 and follow the rules.

Surprisingly good idea.

I'm personally okay with the current name and I advocated it when moot asked. Japan General was too general and trollable. Otaku Culture puts focus on certain elements, but doesn't exclude obscure material like japanese trees, trains, architecture, etc.
If I were to give a new name to the board I'd omit words that would attract babbies from /a/ and clueless newfriends from other boards. I believe renaming /jp/ to "VN/Eroge & Touhou" would kill the userbase and in the end the board itself.

>> No.7458777

>>7458714
Otaku Culture and Japan/General have both been attempts at describing the board without excluding anything that could possibly be discussed here. And I think both of these names have been failures. Instead of allowing the users the freedom to decide what should be discussed, it has just made shitposters feel entitled to dictate the content of the board.

If we instead picked a title that gives the board some direction, it would be easier to decide what should be accepted as exceptions, as the core userbase that would be attracted to the board would have enough in common to actually reach agreements about it.

Of course, it's probably way too late now. The userbase isn't going to change significantly (at least not for the better) just because you change the name. But if the name was given more thought when it was created, I think the board would have better chances of still being good.

Even if you change the board's name, nothing will change about it. Even if you were to explicitly state every single "appropriate" board topic, it wouldn't change the fact that: a) anybody who gives a damn can spend a week not posting and get a pretty good idea, if not a perfect understanding, of what stuff belongs here, and that b) anyone who didn't care/was a retarded troll would still post in an off topic manner, even if you clearly stated what was on topic. Besides, off topic threads can be fun sometimes. People whining about stuff not belonging/ arguing over what should and shouldn't be posted is never fun.

Easy. /jp/ have been over this time and time again.
But /jp/ remaining a blue board is sort of semi-important, or actually really important.

But the idea is to save the board from horrors of flat out porn dumps with no context or simply, massive increase of R-rated content whatsover, with no regards to much else.

While it might sound funny, considering we are all manchildren here or little girls, /jp/ staying a blue board enables us to discuss erotic content, in a more mature way.
That is, actually discuss the content, and the work as a whole, or go over several aspects of things. Rather than "Hurr porn.".
We can still go on as always, and one could always have the decensy to spoiler some NSFW images if suitable, it is the least one can do to not fall into the pits that are not safe for work boards.
