So... are quests automatically autosaging? Any way to prevent this? Are there specific 'quest times' in should be aware of?

Except that still doesn't remove the threads. They're still fucking there. So now you have 3 threads about actual /tg/ related things on the front page at any time because these faggots HAVE to have 100 quest threads active at one point AND a thread to discuss the quest thread they like that isn't active right now PLUS the additional thread complaining about quest threads that got dropped or the ones they liked.

As a GM of Nationbuilder games, myself, no I wouldn't. But Nationbuilder games aren't as much quest threads as they are strategic games.

What I think makes the difference between a quest thread and a collective game is that in a quest thread there is ONE protagonist which every poster controls, while in a collective game there is several player characters - who are not protagonists - which each is controlled by one fa/tg/uy - and new players can join in without knowing the previous history of the game as long as they understand the mechanics.

It's not even filters, people are reporting them because they don't like them and so they decide to piss in everyone else's cornflakes.

Really people on tg just need to grow the fuck up and accept there are going to be things they hate regardless of what they think.

I hate 90% of the same DND threads, 40k threads and that which we get every day because it is vitally important to speak about the same shit every day. But I ignore them because they aren't of my interests, if the rare thread in which shit other than wanking off GW, bitching about prices or painting threads with assholes acting like they all have won the golden daemon then I read them and contribute.

The point is to look at the picture, I've blurred out every single non-quest or non-collective game, threads that are story times, or debates, or derailed-epic threads (such as "a picture more interesting than the post")

There are 10 threads that are non-quest threads.

There are 40 threads that are quest threads.

This means there are 80% more quest threads achived than there are threads that most people can enjoy without having to read 2 or 3 preluding threads.

So why do we have so many quest threads - shitty or not - when efforts could be made into improving our LARP gear, PnP setting or painting Warhammer 40K minis?

Any /tg/ quest GM might as well sit down and write a "choose your own story" style book - it'll earn him/her some money.

But mostly it is probably just about us needing something to whine about, and I have decided to whine about something that the loud minority likes.

Exactly right. I could not agree with you more.

Facts about /tg/:
1. It exists for all this shit, including quest threads and 40k. Saying quest threads aren't /tg/ is like saying that D&D isn't /tg/. I don't like quest threads, but they fucking belong here.

When I first started browsing /tg/ about 2 years ago, there was a sticky saying, more or less, "Shut the fuck up about Quest Threads. They are /tg/ related and we aren't getting rid of them."

I don't know what's changed, but over the past few months, I have noticed a swell in the number of active quests. I can't say that I'm angry about them being here, but I'm a little bothered. Mostly because long-running quests feel very alienating and exclusionary. Iron Hearts, for example, is loaded dense, nigh impenetrable terms, nametags, jargon, and all sorts of other shit. I stop in to see the occasional cool art, but I could never participate.

I think that's the problem, mostly. When people see "_____ Quest pt 97" they instantly feel the need to keep scrolling. They think, "I couldn't possibly jump in on this quest and there's no way I'm reading the other 96 parts to catch up without missing the next 10 threads in the time it would take me."

Text quests are the problem. They are too easy to do, so oversaturation occurs. Any retard can hammer some illiterate drivel on his keyboard, but it takes some (even if only very minor) effort to scribble even the most basic stick figures. In text you can just say "OK, he shoots a laser from his ass and fucks all bitches and wears a billion gold-plated diamonds on his nipples" in a (failed) attempt at being "awesome" or "epic", while even the shittiest drawing would actually have to depict this, making anything actually great that much greater.

Furthermore, the quest format is shares similarities with comics. A person who can draw and likes telling stories is most likely one who has some experience in drawing comics, meaning that he would also be more likely to be sufficiently competent at authoring a quest. Everyone has a keyboard, but someone who takes the effort to draw an image and make sure it and the text are connected is more likely to both take the effort to maintain some semblance of quality and have the capacity to succeed.

This is not to say that text quests are wrong kind of fun, but image quests attract authors who are more likely to prefer quality over quantity and also have a threshold which favors quality over quantity.

There was a time when /tg/ would gamify and relate anything they got their hands on, no matter how small or tangentially unrelated to the board.

We were the board of that would turn everything into a game or a campaign setting or just content for an existing game.

If we stuck with this "THAT'S NOT /TG/ RELATED" mentality, we wouldn't have AdEva or the F-Zero RPG or most of the homebrews that actually got finished.

This man is wise. He's the only one that seems to understand why a glut of quest threads is frustrating.

They just can't really be enjoyed by most of us; they're for a small audience of participants. A brand-new quest, or one that hasn't had many threads yet, gives a chance to jump in but quickly enough they cross the accessibility threshold. There's a point where a quest runs long enough that simply seeing the part number is discouraging. Catching up on 20 threads just to understand the plot of a quest is a tall order even if you just intend to read it and not participate. They just take up space on the front page for those of us not in the small circle of participants.

On a really really bad day there can be as many as 10 quests active at once. Then it goes into overdrive and stops being frustrating and starts being infuriating. It's like going to /co/ and seeing every other thread dedicated to some obscure European cartoons from the 70s. Probably not interested and even if you were, there's no way you could participate.

For people who mostly play miniatures games, it's easy to distinguish between what is related to the game and what isn't.

Well there's your problem.

Aside from the author establishing things like "you can't fly" and "you can't shoot laser robots out of your ass", quests should run primarily on author discretion. If it's "serious" you should concentrate on the story and characters, if it's comedic it's dependent on your sense of humor and showmanship to begin with, so arbitrary mechanics are dead weight. Story, characters and delivery should be the concern, not the modifier your strength adds to your anal circumference if facing a Saharan tree frog on an alternate Monday during Backwards Ramadan.
Calculators&Flowcharts can be a fun game, especially if you like that sort of thing, but quests aren't a good platform for that.

I really cannot say whatever quests are /tg/ related or not. They have been nesting here for a long while now.
I could move Daniel's Quest to other board if people really wanted it.

Autosaging I cannot explain, as I haven't experienced such myself. IIRC I have used 'quest' in subject-field once or twice.
Oh well.
Regarding the whole 'tgchan won't read quests without furries' is still kinda false. Yes, tgchan is terribly furry, but they still can like quest with not-furry protagonist. My quest actually gathered quite bit of suggesters and readers and the character is pretty well known. Board is kinda slow but eh, kinda perfect for 1 or 2 updates per day update-schedule.

Quests on /tg/ are suffering because people can't just throw in fetishes and get an automatic share of attention, like they used to be able to.

Without the fetishes to serve as bait for the hook, new quests just can't get traction and quickly die off before they get a dedicated fanbase that sees more than just a fetish in the quest.

One of the arguments I've seen being used is that the quest goers are all the same people that don't go to non-quest threads. And that's bollocks.
For the anon,s you can't check it at all, and there hasn't been a namefag I've seen in a quest that hasn't been posting outside of one too. And not all questers like all the quests. There's a couple I'm following, but there's plenty of quests that don't really interest me at all.

I rather like the autosaging solution. It keeps quests off the front page, but /tg/'s slow enough moving that they'll stick around. The people who like the quests will have to look back a ways, but to the extent that they're a minority, better them do it than everyone else.

Creating a separate quest board would certainly address the problem, but it would probably have to include other things as well, like the "roll doubles to X" or "post numbers determine loadout" type things that pop up everywhere. Frankly, it'd clean up the whole site a fair bit.

I asked moot to add spoilers to /tg/ back when he was asking for suggestions, but I haven't actually tested it out since.

For long-running quests, it is the same people posting in every thread, thread after thread. There's too much backstory and rules for any outsider to jump in, it's very exclusionary.

I think the best solution was posted earlier in the thread, but I can't be arsed to find it now.

Gamefinder threads. One thread at a time, used both for people finding online games and people who want to run quests. If you're only going to have the same handful of people in your quest all the time, there's no reason to keep posting it on the board versus in an IRC channel, you're not attracting any new participants with Anime Butler Quest #2305. Here's how I see it going down:

>Gamefinder thread
>Post brief description of your quest
>Post schedule you will try to keep
>Post IRC channel to join
>Players join the quests they want to
>You get to advertise it on /tg/
>Yours and every other quest on /tg/ only takes up one spot on the front page

Do this every time you start up the quest, every time you run another session, or every time your IRC channel is in need of some new players.

the autosage absolutely kills quest threads. they only pop up once on the frontpage (which is the only think most people seem to check), so it can't actually get any contributors except for the 1 or 2 that notice it the first time, and then they can't start. I've seen some that still tried, but there were only those 1 or 2 people, and it sucked.

And the roll x things like the zombie survival one yesterday would be nice to add to it too then, would make it more varied, because only quest threads would probably be too little traffic for an entire board. it'd be it's own archive, so to speak.

I don't. Many of the quest threads can last for upwards of four hours, when tg is being spammed with new shit as it does sometimes when people want to get rid of older threads or autos aging threads they would die very quickly.

For the most part I don't see the hatred of quest threads, they are kept to their thread. No one comes in and tries to shoehorn their quest into other threads and no one jumps from a quest thread to bitch about 40k spam or d&d spam or MTG spam.

I'm assuming most folk that dislike or just have no interest in quests do the sensible thing. Hide them or scroll past, neither of which is difficult.

Instead we end up with a 200+ post metathread started because the OP was mad that people like things he doesn't.

We've had good discussion about a /q/ board and it was quite evident that splitting /tg/ wouldn't be a good thing, likely why Moot didn't.

Quest threads are /tg/ related as confirmed by Mods, and they make up only a meager fraction of the board at any one time.

yes, the same people will frequent the same quests, but that's not really what I meant. The way haters said it was that there's only this tiny group of people that go to all the quests.

And while in theory the gamefinder analogy would work a bit, I have serious doubts about IRC as a medium for quests.
Plus, there's only a single quest I was in from the start, and that was Deity quest. All the others I've only picked up after a few threads, and sometimes even after 10 or 12ths (like heretical love and metahuman), so that way would also completely eliminate the newcomer inflow, which is especially crucial in the first few threads. people miss the second thread, or took part in the first but lost interest, etc. To balance those out it needs the people that see the second or third thread and think "hey, this could be a nice one".

There are a lot of different quests right now. This is largely cyclical, and due to the success of a couple big ones right now. Even if they are only kept to the active thread, which they often aren't (discussion threads are fairly common), it's a lot of space taken up by a small portion of the community.

When you have more Quest and quest-related threads on the front page than any other, its a problem. Period.

Just fucking last night there was 3 goddamn quest threads and 2 discussions on the front page. Fuck you go to /tg/chan, that place was made for quests.

>> No.18369187

Wondering if this discussion would be better handled in IRC? Generating some thought on this and how it affects the board is not a bad thing after all.

Anyway here's another opinion on quest threads, I hope it is useful.

I think quests are an amazing new art form, and as they intersect rollplaying it falls under /tg.

Given 4chan's emphasis on image board culture I think quests should be run by artists. The art does not have to be masterpiece quality but it should be there. I suspect some quests are done by two people, one being the artist.

I don't want to be rid of text based quests, nor do I want to start an argument about their validity or right to be here. I just want to say I feel they are missing the point.

I would support a split of a new board for quests. I think the potential of a new art form make it worth it and 4chan could benefit from "backing" something like this.

I myself would dearly love to run a quest, I've only held off because my art skills are not up to par in any way that could hold someone else's interest. My solution is to get off my ass an practice and learn.

Thank you 4chan for providing some motivation to learn something new and a future goal to reach for.

But they are.

A large amount of the threads on the board at any one time are quests. That's not good.

I don't want to get involved in a quest thread, because I have other things to do besides sit at my computer all day reloading a page. If I wanted to do that, I'd run my own quest. But that's the thing, there are already so many quests, and so many people saying "hey, maybe I should run a quest?" that the board *is* flooded with them. And don't get me wrong, I don't hate quests. I don't like them myself, but the idea is cool, and I'd like to see them continue instead of getting deleted or whatever.

But I'd like them to have a much lessened presence. Maybe have it so that you need approval for quests, and the mods give you a schedule, if that's what it takes.

The archive is flooded with quests because most quests that people are interested in are MULTI-PART, and usually end up on-going.

Discussion threads where the same shit is discussed again and again, do not belong in the archive.

When you have a truly good normal thread, where some OC is presented, or an idea sparks and it reveals a hidden side that isn't normally discussed. THEN it deserves an archive.

You are a retardweasel. That is the number of ARCHIVED threads, if I'm not mistaken. It makes sense that more quests get archived than shitty 40k threads, dnd edition wars threads, elf slave wat do threads, and etc, because the quests are OC, and people who do want to get into them need to have a way of knowing what happened previously.

>> No.18369365

Field is too long? Well fuck you.

I had a long post to make on the topic of this stuff but since 4chan said "no" and slapped me in the face, I'll put it simply.

Yes, there is currently an over-saturation of low quality quests that people aren't putting any thought, time or effort into. Yes, this is a bad thing. It's a project and it requires you to invest in it and if you can't manage that, then don't start it at all. All but one or two of the quest threads that have been born in the past month will be dead a month from now on. Those successful quest threads will go on to become long-term and be carried by a solid fanbase.

Right now, prime-time /tg/ is full of quest threads with only a handful of participants each, except for the popular, serious ones. 75% of it is low-quality content but only two or three people are interested, constantly being bumped to the front page while it's active. It's exceptionally irritating and it's one of the main reasons why I've not made another quest thread, despite all sorts of ideas hovering about in my head.

Right now we're in the middle of a rabid quest season, these always happen once or twice a year. Soon it'll pass as people realise they're too lazy to keep this up and are unwilling to go up against the growing number of haters. Quest threads will decrease in numbers, so will the amount of haters and this is the point in time when a quest thread can be made safely. At this moment in time, it's a bad idea to even CONSIDER starting a quest, with amount of over-saturation going on.

At times Managing a game with just fucking 6 people can be hell, let alone a game across the internet with an average of about 30 people at any given time.

No one is stopping you from starting a thread if you can't find what you are looking for.

The real answer to the so-called 'saturation' of quest threads is for people to just post more in other threads or start new threads about a topic that interests them.

Quests aren't invading and taking over other threads like other previous 'problem' content like mlp and its rabid fanbase, or the legions of warmahorde/warhammer fans.

Just contribute and talk about the shit that interests you, don't fucking waste time bitching and complaining to the mods.

Wait... was that you that gave away all those steam games like bastion, super meat boy etc. once (bit after christmas I think)? If not, I'm not sure what you're talking about, but if you are, you are an awesome person. carry on.

It's an old suggestion which has been vetoed already.
Nothing new has come out of this except a greater hatred of basement dwelling grognards who think that they should control what gets posted on tg because the front page is so important

For the most part you are a pillar of the community.

Sadly this is not saying much since the community for /tg/ has a bunch of autists and cry-babies mixed into it.

No that was Slaneeshi Whore Lord.
We do however chip in in each other's threads and give away stuff there, too, so I guess it's easy to confuse us.
