Somehow this picrelated comment made me think.
Is /tg/ that much of a splittered fuck up board? (So the balkans of 4chin)

Why don't we try something like /a/. I think /tg/ has some songs that are very much /tg/ related. Of course not everybody likes something like the Blind Guardians Bardssong but I think the majority does.


>> No.47315532

Because /tg/ is even more spergy than /a/.

>> No.47315546

The definition of what counts as "getting shit done" has changed, not what /tg/ actually does.
Nowadays, when shit gets done, there's always some little bitch going "But it was just a core group of people who did most of the work, not /tg/ as a whole", which is how it has always been.

>> No.47315569

we're not a fucking singing board?
I'm sorry but building a tabletop game or /tg/ related vidya is a lot mork work than singing a faggy song, not trying to disrespect /a/ cause they did at least make Katawa Shoujo but come on it's incomparable

>> No.47315577

>/tg/ as a whole
I think here lies the point. Flames of war general for example has a successful podcast running. Does that count as 'getting shit done'? I think yes. But the board on a whole?

It would be nice. But I doubt it.

>we're not a fucking singing board?
Neither is /a/?

>> No.47315590

Yet they have orders of magnitude more music and singing related content by default, so yes, they are a singing board compared to most boards.

>> No.47315593

we're always trying to do things, anon.
There are regular running games on this very site constantly, along with new game systems being made, and game stories being told, and game discussion being had.

I feel like we're doing all the getting done that is applicable for our entertainment of choice. It's not like tabletop systems have theme songs for us to sing.

>> No.47315599

we're not /a/
they're a bunch of faggots we don't sing songs here, we make actual games and settings that have use to us, we're not "singing songs to our le new favorite animaymay xD".

>> No.47315601

It's not like /tg/ actually shares that many interests. Most of us are here for maybe a fourth (And that's being generous and assuming that the average user is interested in every single game of a certain category or theme) of the topics discussed.
If the MtG people were trying to do something neat, I'd never even know about it because I don't play Magic or go into their threads. If the GURPSfags were making their own sourebook for something, I'd never know about it because I don't play GURPS or go into their threads, and so on. And that's pretty much true of everyone here.

>> No.47315605

That's our secret, OP.

/tg/ NEVER got shit done.

>> No.47315631

I think this is what OP refered to as "balkan of 4chin'.

I look for three threads total. That's it. The rest? I simply don't care.

>> No.47315645

And because of the consistency required for a quality /tg/ related product (Even something simple like a small conversion needs to be internally consistent with itself and the ruleset it's built on), tight creative control is really necessary. If you open up a project to everyone equally with no project leads, it either coalesces into a small team with creative control, or breaks down into a messy, bloated, unbalanced (And sometimes schism'd) mess.

>> No.47315655

Which either means that it doesn't count as "/tg/ getting shit done", since it's just a small group, or it's not worth slapping the label on because it's shit.
4chan seems to be eating parts of my posts.

This is what "/tg/ gets shit done" meant. One anon or group of anons does something /tg/ related and post it here. You are left alone because you are lazy guy who never does anything productive.

me neither.
Honestly, I think /tg/ is as filled with creativity and doing things as it ever has been.
Though I really don't like how as /tg/ has gone on, more and more people bitch about this or that not matching their vision of the ideal /tg/.

the fuck dies the whole of /tg/ even mean? do you know exactly how many people constitutes the term /tg/?
do you think every single person who browses /a/ had participated in that shitty video song whatever?
no of course not, it's always a group of people to varying size that uses /tg/ as a place to help develop a certain thing, nothing more nothing less, it's not possible for /tg/ to make anything because /tg/ is an unknown number of unknown people, stop being ridiculous.

when /tg/ gets shit, it's when something was created to an extent by the discussion of this board, no more no less.

>> No.47315726

well, except for the things /tg/ gets done that involve input, like drawthreads, discussions, deliveries, and the like.

/tg/ gets shit done on a small scale literally every day by refining ideas. Everything from decklists and armylists to helping GMs sort out their next encounters, npcs, and campaigns.

>> No.47315751

This. /a/ is by default a spectator board, doing nothing but watching and discussing anime, which produces nothing but shitty songs on youtube. /tg/ plays and DMs, and discuss playing and GMing.

Even after making a containment board, the questfags are still running around underfoot without reprimand.

And of course it's a splintered board- have you ever been in the 40k threads? You might think that they'd be brought together by playing the same game, but they still manage to segregate and other themselves based on which factions they like. That's a level of sperg you cannot combat.

So no- it doesn't get shit done. Though I'm not sure what you were hoping to accomplish with it were that the case.

Compare what we have now with what /tg/ used to churn out. We literally can't have certain types of threads that generate board relevant material because trolls congregate on them drive away or drown out anyone who might contribute.

You could do something halfway proactive and positive if you're concerned about the wellbeing of /tg/ but all I ever see out of you types is barrage of nonsensical groundless arguments as to why your pet peeve is killing /tg/, even though it's been here for years without disrupting anything. Which is more than can be said for yourself.

>Like, this board staying together -requires- us to be accepting of people who have nothing to do with our interests.
There is one key thing I would look at there. Yes, we do need to be more accepting in general and likely don't get our panties in a bind about something outside of our interests, come together to rationalize higher, but the issue at the end of the day is that without a form of creative control and locking down or out content, you have insurmountable problems trying to keep simple minded idiots who churn uninspired, Lowest common denominator interestbait.

This acceptance also includes spurning clubhousery or grouping together. /tg/ should not see an IRC and a team as 'un-/tg/' because frankly, I do not see unorganized, disinterested anons ever completing work to /tg/'s specifications.

Unfortunately so. What's worse is that /tg/ expects creative content to just well forth, but there's no material to improve creativity, nothing to teach idiots the creative process, no teachings of how to GM effectively, not even very much exploration beyond Q&A sessions. /fit/ legitimately has beaten /tg/ with 1 sticky.

This scale of stupid where people expect unprepared, disorganized newfags to somehow get shit done without resorting to organizing tools or locations is frankly appalling, and I say that as an early contributor.

Unfortunately for you, I don't think /qst/ really should stay on /tg/ earlier, because I believe that helped suck the creative air out of the room from other projects and content, so to speak. They retain an enormous potential for popularity, and very few questfags seem to even give that criticism the time of day because of the major backlash at the start. That said, I won't press on that issue because it's my opinion, there's no need to shit the bed about it, and the purge quests mentality is autistic as fuck.

D. A series of seemingly random, largely unrelated assertions and ultimatums

/tg/ starts projects all the god damn time, and they'll last 2-4 threads, and then the administrator will get bored with it and nobody else will pick it up and like a dozen people gave up a month's weekends for nothing.

>There might not be very much homebrew/OC than 2 years ago. But in the last half year there was Omarase, Minotaurus world or the pantheon (the laughing god) homebrewed by /tg/
Arguably speaking /tg/ has done better now with Riddle of Steel, VeloCity, and the Emperor's Nightmares, but at the end of the day they still receive a trickle of support.

For all of the shit I saw, the mentality of /tg/ used to be "lets create!" That isn't there anymore. That attitude is... spurned, I suppose.

I kinda wish I could just give you my general mood about the whole thing and the evidence rolling around in my head pushing me to come to this opinion. Problem is, I'm so scattered about the feeling that the thing I see wrong is hard to explain.

The whole idea that 'x was always shit' fucks up trying to objectively look at what the board's problems are. Someone tries to assert something about how this isn't good, it gets swept under the rug because "well it was never good." That's not really good logic, and it hurts trying to actually get better content.

>> No.47316659

/a/ has so much more singing content, though.

There really isn't much /tg/ music going on. There isn't a album released every year for DnD, for example.

On the other hand, there's much of storytelling, games and other such stuff that gets done. But as everyone knows, /tg/ is an idea chamber, then there's someone who does all the work, and finally releases for the general amusement of people on /tg/.

If you're going to claim that quests are nothing but /a/ in exile than your argument rests on quests that are explicitly modeled after their medium.

4chins has been on a steady decline for like 5 years
Dumbasses spilled the beans back in like 2005, and it rapidly became the hangout for people who wanted to be lol-so-random and anti-everything. It wasn't so bad at first but eventually, by the population slowly being replaced by those faggots 4chan began turning into the place the outside internet thought it was; a nearly literal hate machine. It's gotten to the point where new 4chan opposes traditional 4chan culture; the use of reaction images, something 4chan reveled in and pioneered, is sometimes enough to get whatever you posted completely discarded, because you're a "fucking memer," like every image of a character doing something or saying something is a meme being posted because you think it's the popular thing to post without any consideration to it's contextual function. Board animosity is at an all time high, too; interestingly the fucking bait-fish has survived all of this. Do you remember the fucking "pony wars," as one board came to call it? The entire fucking site shut down for nearly two weeks because some people wanted to watch a girly cartoon, and then /b/ being /b/ and took the opportunity o brew a shit storm, but instead of recognizing them and just blowing it off as, "lol, fucking /b/," the entire site collectively went ape-shit. So a bunch of guys want to watch a shitty little kids show, who fucking cares? That's like 60% of what goes on on ths website, but that one randomly just pushed all the right buttons I guess and everyone lost their shit. I mean "meme," in and of it's self is a dirty fucking word now, and it's the new go-to for farmers looking to erect a strawman in their fields of postured nonsense. Is 4chan going anywhere? No, I'd give it another decade at least, but it's going to die long before then.

/tg/ is by default a very diverse board because of the subjects it deals with : CCGs, TTRPGs, board games and tabletop wargaming are sharing the same board, which is not that intuitive at first. Out of that, all of them bring very different people : not the same people will enjoy storyteller RPGs and crunch-heavy RPGs.

As I said, sometimes I try to provide good content, but sometimes it's just shitposting time. The quality of a thread is already down when it starts with "I want to fuck an elf xD" and it lowers the quality of all other elf threads in advance if everyone think that's okay.

Some weeks ago there were two smut threads about muscular orc girls. No traditional games to be found, only /aco/ content on a blue board. Both reached bump limit. Then some days later someone made a regular orc thread. No fetishes or anything, I think it reached 50 posts and died down. I don't want /tg/ to be like this.

>> No.47316821

To push forward, I think the best thing /tg/ can do to get shit done is to take a good look at /fit/'s sticky and at some point develop material teaching people and giving them tools on how to be productive, how to GM, how to support a creative process. Maybe even how to be motivated. That in itself will be the best thing /tg/ could possess.

>> No.47316950


I think the problem with shitposting is that there's too much reluctance and not enough motivation for the work involved. But that may have been just because shitposting used to not be so targetted.

I think also, having no place to reason about /tg/ meta also hurt /tg/. Part of the creative process is the need to analyze and develop the environment needed to accomplish shit. But of course, shitposting.

So /tg/ needs some way to develop, implement, and prove a 'direction' is worth upholding.

The outline for the left? It's the outline to a style guide, or manual of standards. You use it to enforce consistency and explain to all your staff what the design of the document is going to be, enforce good practices.

"A style guide has 2 columns. One column has the work that we want to see, the other column has the work that the project is not supposed to be. It serves as a refresher to focus what the hell the project looks like."

Because we're not that organized, we're also using it as a design document, a method to guide our creative process, implement due dates or objectives, and a writing ruleset with the stuff you see in the picture. This would be our second revision of the original design document.

It's pretty damn helpful.

Quests don't do anything for me. I come onto /tg/ to get ideas and discuss traditional games. I've participated in forum roleplays before, and those can be fun, but not the CYOA fanfiction stuff that 99% of quests are.

Further, most of them deal with subject matter I'd prefer not to discuss. Anime is prominent in them. A lot of them are just original fiction that's either bad or uninteresting.

Further quest authors are too autistic to agree upon a universal tag for their threads so I can safely filter them without losing other content (since "quest" is a popular word to use on /tg/ for legitimate purposes). If the quest authors could agree to tag all their threads with something identifiable, such as #questthread, for easy filtering, /qst/ would not be necessary. But of course, that's impossible for two reasons:

1. quest authors get offended when you suggest that some people might not want to read their content, and will not help others to ignore them, because largely they are doing it for attention, and

2. there would be too many migrants from other boards, unaware of any informal rules who would not use the tag. I don't trust /a/ to read a sticky.

As such, /qst/ is necessary.

There was a slew of sexual innuedo shitposts combined with "elf slave wat do", "girl in game/Xian in game/gay in game halkp /tg/ wat do", and 'japanese person looks like elf" shitposts - you know the ones, the same kind as the "excuse me commisar", "anime picture as character portrait" and "shota dogboy mother issues" spam we have nbow. The janitor finally had enough, and an insane moderator decided to ban anythign he didn't like personally and carried out a personal vendetta agaisnt several well known posters he didn't like, in addition to pretending to clean out the spam that never really went away. It got to the point where Moot had to fire him because he was banning /tg/ related threads because he personally didn't like them. A number of drawfags, writefags, and actual contributors to the board were permabanned for no reason other than the mod didn't like their opinions and posting.

These same shitposters police /tg/ to this day, workign their hardest to get whatever the deem is unsitable for /tg/ banned. They also gloat about it afterwards, which seems to have pissed off the moderation team, because these people are no longer getting bowed to.

HFY was a great concept, but we got zero new ideas from it, and what, one setting from it?

>> No.47318155

My opinion on quests is that while yes, in a sense CYOAs (which is what the majority of quests are in my experience, I rarely see writein options used) are /tg/ related, I'm not a huge fan of the way that quests take up far more of the front page then other things relative to their presence in the catalog. I won't say that quests fill the catalog because they certainly don't, but since the majority of the posts in a quest thread are basically people casting a ballot(which takes badically zero time) they get bumped a lot more than other threads.
You could use the catalog, and I do when I'm trying to find a specific thread, but a front page style interface is better for idle browsing since you focus your attention to a single thread at a time and also get a "snapshot" of the current state of that thread instead of only the OP in the catalog. New users also primarily use the front page since it's the default and might be driven away by the amount of quests on the upper pages and thing that's all /tg/ is.
That being said, /qst/ wasn't implemented well at all, a board just for quests isn't going to be able to support itself, I would think a "forum games" board would be a better solution, which would encompass things like quests, CYOAs, risk threads, hunger game threads,etc. So all the "games" are in one easy to find place that has tools to easily facilitate them.

>> No.47318230

You probably weren't around for the implementation. Some mod made a thread to propose rules and get feedback, the rules were pants-on-head retarded, everyone told him not to do it at all, so he tweaked one thing and went ahead with it like 12 hours after the thread was up. The whole thing reeked of contempt and incompetence.

Quests kept hitting the front page over and over and over again even though they were just a small percentage at any given time. This drove threads like the modding existing systems, basic questions for rules, and other stuff into respective generals.

These generals have very little room or desire to have people sidetrack from the main topics so any creativity is generally shut down pretty quick.

If adding them to the setting at all is "shoeing them in" then you're fucking retarded. Shoeing in means forcing them somewhere where they wouldn't fit IE making a White character brown for no good reason. If Magic, a setting that's always had a ridiculous amount of diversity, didn't have brown people, that would be weird.

And the real issue is that the constant spouting of memes prevents people from discussing the actual background, lore or mechanics of the new set. Instead, it was just "HURRDURR INDIANS MEAN POO"

>see, it wasn't people getting together and making generals that killed /tg/
On that point, there's enough experience to argue that generals weren't the cause because there was plenty of material being outright ignored after the nuking of homebrews and Nazimod era. That material coalesced in order to take up less room and deliver more eyeballs to individual ideas and posts.

The problem existed before. I've had plenty of ideas and even the simplest of image threads fall apart because it was me and 1 other person halfassing 2 responses for 30 minutes.

I'm not a fan of general threads but I see their use and banning them isn't feasible because /tg/ isn't like /v/ or /a/.
On /tg/, very rarely are new high profile systems released, and supplementary content for those systems only happens once every few months if at all, which makes it almost impossible to distinguish something like a general thread from a shadowrun thread or a pathfinder thread because there isn't anything "new" to talk about persay, where on /v/ it'd be pretty obvious that a thread constantly talking about Transistor years after it's release is a general thread because there are a fuckton of newer things to talk about and these guys just keep talking about transistor over and over.

Banning them isn't feasible because they're actually useful and handle core /tg/ concerns. They simply have a big incest problem.

>TTRPGs are a much "slower" hobby than video games or anime or TV because they are more of a niche hobby.
Trying to elaborate on creative content that interests bystanders is also a unique concern. That needs publicity and some accommodation to pull a diamond out of the rough. Like it or not, things like Battletech or wargame wouldn't do as well without a general keeping interest.

I'd love to talk about Twilight 2000 or Twilight 2013 but I can guarantee that almost nobody knows about those systems or turn their head at 'simulationism.' At best, I'd get 10 responses.

The long and short of it is that /qst/ wouldn't be necessary if quest authors could self regulate behind a specific, filterable quest tag. But they can't and won't, so /qst/ becomes necessary, because quests are only sort of /tg/ related, and invite so much shitposting on both sides. In exchange, the mods have given quest authors on /qst/ the ability to produce content that can't be produced here, so it's a win/win generally. If quest content is strong enough to stand on its own, the board will succeed. If it isn't, then the content isn't really worth having in the first place.

As someone who has been involved in forum RPs before, nearly every forum I've been too keeps the RP to its own section. This is a good policy. It's only on /tg/ that you see people want to slide RP into discussion sections where they don't belong, all out of the fear that the content isn't good enough to attract people on its own merits.

Quest itself is a valid /tg/ word. Filtering by quest would filter valid /tg/ topics (such as a DM asking for help designing a quest for his players). Quest authors should gather around something specific that won't be used by nonquest authors, such as #questthread in the subject field. But they won't.

This keeps getting said and nobody ever satisfactorily explains how they differ from RPGs (Everyone is John in particular). Usually the response is something along the lines of "quests are just fanfiction", which I'll cut off at the pass by saying that most quests use hard mechanics, use write-ins (which means player agency) and aren't pre-written.
So keeping in mind that quests use RPG like mechanics and RPG like back and forth between the person running the quest and the players, how are quests unrelated to traditional games?

The problem with quests isn't that they consume too much space on the board, in my opinion. The problem with quests is that they hog the front page 90% of the time, so this has multiple side effects:

A) people who come to /tg/ without using the catalog see the front page which can literally be nothing but quests
B) people who come to /tg/ even using the catalog see how much of the top of the board is taken up by nothing but quests
C) people who don't want to look at quests see one or both of these things and it infuriates them (like me)

Now, you can argue that people like me who don't just filter threads they don't like are part of the problem. Maybe. But I don't believe in filtering on SFW boards. It seems cowardly and insecure to not confront 100% of the reality of what threads are on the board. Filtering is very good for places like /d/ where it's like one monstergirl thread surrounded by farting, vore, etc., but I don't think it has a place on boards where there is actively vile content.

I could write an entire essay on the reasons why I despise quests, dissect the medium and where it is currently, but I get the feeling none of you would ever care to read it.

Now, I don't know if you ascribe to it, but many anti-questfags use cowardly, insecure arguments, such as the ever popular silent majority. So if you're concerned with cowardice, well, you're being associated with it due to your peers constant, repetitive tactics.

If you do admit to filtering threads, the questfags will accuse you of being >>47316795
. It's a lose/lose situation anon.


This is the hypocrisy of the questfag. They may advocate filters for people who don't like their content, but if you use that as a solution, you're an outsider who doesn't belong on /tg/ because you're easily "triggered". The questfag only wants attention. Their ideal /tg/ poster is someone who reads all of their threads and never has a negative thing to say about them. They don't want discussion. They want mutual masturbation.

At least, the ones who stayed on /tg/ after they were shown the way out do. The people that did the sensible thing and moved to /qst/ are total bros.

Really, the ideal situation would probably be to have all quest threads moved to /qst/, but let them keep a quest thread general on this board to advertise and serve as a discussion thread.

Except for the entire game systems and literally constant small works being done when GMs ask for help.
If you actually tallied up all the "I did this thing and don't know what to do next or how to make this work mechanically in the game" problems that /tg/ has solved just this month, it would be a fucking large number.

so you guys sit around writing basic fantasy stories, wow good job, now how about you learn japanese, scan, translate and edit hundreds of series that literally hundreds of thousands of people read, and make a visual novel, but I guess you wouldn't give credit for katawa shoujo to /a/ because it's not like they translated the doujin it was based on and started the whole thing
slightly modifying dnd with a couple of meme ideas then calling it a "new system" that noone uses is a lot more important yeah

noooo, that's the strawman you've been beating up. Being popular isn't a good metric for getting shit done. Actually making quality content is a good metric. Katawa Shoujo is the only thing /a/ has in that regard. /tg/ has VeloCITY, Ad Eva (Three editions and counting), endless amounts of content tweaks, and a bunch of other stuff aside. Some people don't like it, but quests and CYOA are also OC, although they don't have much value after the fact.

Not really. All it requires is that you're bilingual. That's easy as fuck. There's no creative requirement. Give it ten years and there will be a translation program good enough to render /a/'s work entirely obsolete.

It's just not what YOU want or are interested in.
There's absolute tons of content created but it's spread around many, many different games. Homebrew codex rules for 40k. 9th age for Fantasy. X: The Ying for WoD old and new. Custom Magic cards and variant rules for boardgames.

The only complaint I have about /tg/ are the more vapid questions like "Emperor is a girl elf wat do XD" type shit that pushes legitimate good ideas and content off the board.
