Since at least some of the mods are openly hostile towards the actual userbase of this site and like to abuse their power, I propose the introduction of some sort of global log. This log would be publicly accessible to all users and would document each and every sitewide change and mod action followed by a written explanation. Each event could be questioned and contested at will, and each staff member would be given an ID and be held accountable.

This could easily be implemented. It's a small step, but I feel it's a step in the right direction.

Thoughts?

You only made this thread because your shitposts got deleted, 100% guaranteed. You probably barged into some thread, started accusing someone of being a female, then got butthurt when your shit got removed.

I made this thread for the reasons stated in the op: the mods are increasingly hostile towards the userbase and this attitude has been recently demonstrated to me with the unfair removal of a thread which was not in violation of any of the rules, and the subsequent warnings, banning, and deletion/locking of another thread on /meta/ questioning this.

There was another thread on here about purchasing this site, which was then moved to /b/ for no reason and without any input from admin.

So yeah, it's a culmination of things. The potential crypto-succ is just another piece.

There's no reason to believe that succubi are staying away from wizchan as it stands. Mods censor anything that has the potential to offend succubi. They even censor succubi hate threads, which were a staple of old wizardchan and drove succubi away, reminding them that they are not welcome here.

THANK YOU! I knew I wasn't the only one who remembered this.

It's a disgrace how the "disregard succubi" (a term which originally referred to romantic and social aspects) saying has become subverted on here, to the point where this borderline whiteknight behavior is tolerated and actively promoted, ties into another topic but that's beside the point.

This is why we need more transparency on here from the staff. I have a feeling it's just one or two mods, probably newer ones, who are doing this shit. If this is indeed the case, their actions should be called out by the community.

the nighttime mod is a stupid piece of shit, you know who you are

I was banned over rule 8 for 12 hours for replying to someone that didn't have any sort of "name, avatar, signature, or any variation thereof"

in the post I wrote "I've been gone all day, you're arguing with a completely different person," and he thinks that's a rule 8

you're such a stupid fat piece of shit

I guess so, yeah.

There's obviously not going to be an honest answer forthcoming. It's not possible to give an honest answer ("cuz I hate you for reasons") and maintain the facade of a rules-based site.

I can't even shitpost the same things in /b/ that everyone else does without a ban. The double standard against me on this supposedly all male site makes me feel like I'm dealing with my mom and sister. There is no refuge..

Why does Wizchan block Tor? That seems dumb given the nature of imageboards is anonymity

6fd00 No.55678

>mod has time to move a thread
>can't be arsed to answer a simple questions
it's because we were raided once, admin blocked tor because they were using it to ban evade, and as we all know it is a universal constant that bureaucracies will never voluntarily relinquish power of any sort, so the block stays forever.

No, the nature of wizchan is to let the mods stalk you while they claim it's in order to "weed out" normalfags

Maybe we should make it so warning and ban messages tell you if your post was reported by a member of the community and the mods are acting on it. Then these rude posters will know it wasn't just a mod they were annoying but an angry burger Wiz like me. Might make them less hostile to our moddybobs diffusing blame.

Should we ban younger users from this site? Seems like younger posters are more likely to be failed norms or generally not fit in with the concept of the site. Also, a good amount of them are never going to become wizards. I think the posting age should be 25+

This something I don't get, especially since a lot of these have friends. I think it's that some people see wizardry as like a new straight edge thing where just abstaining from x even though you take part in other aspects of the normal lifestyle is enough to feel different. As the more normal people get older and accumulate stuff they start to feel NEETs/poor wizards as leeches on them so that explains the preaching.

>>55670
Main reason seems to be is a lot of people feel they're deprived of a would-be traditional lifestyle by the social changes and wouldn't be wizards in other circumstances. It feels like they would totally have a wife and kids by now if it wasn't for social liberalism/minorities/etc. Identifying strongly with race and wanting to maintain a race doesn't really fit with being asocial.

The racism thing is understandable when you have to deal with troublesome minorities on a daily basis. Though I guess it's more appropriate to call it 'xenophobia'? anyway, try living in a working class neighbourhood somewhere in western europe and you'll understand. Each migrant wave is worse than the preceding one.

Lots of good reasons to not allow discord links.
1. It will encourage outsiders to come here and shill for their discord.
2. Discord shill threads are basically spam, degrade the quality of imageboards
3. If someone made a wizchan discord, it's inevitable that someone would start shilling that discord on other sites and discord servers. Then outsiders would hear about wizchan from that server and we'd end up attracting even more discord zoomer shitposters. We have enough of those already.

I'll also add that I lurked a bunch of different discord servers out of curiosity like 3 years ago and each and every one of them was pure cancer. Attention whoring, meme spewing, SJWs, unfunny shitposting and petty drama were rampant. I don't know what it is about discord but it attracts the worst types of people. I used irc chatrooms and skype groups off and on and they weren't nearly as bad as discord is. Then again it could just be the fact that discord is mostly zoomers. Either way, I can see why many wizards hate discord and it's users/shills.

it is off-site, unofficial, wizchan rules out the window, no longer anonymous, there is private messaging, exclusivity. you are basically using wizchan to form your own little cliques and it disgusts me

My experience was different than yours. I've went to chatrooms that sprouted from wizardchan and although some people were bad my experience was mostly a positive one. There are some really good people here and I'm glad I could converse with them in a more personal manner. I also used to hate a lot the idea of any sort of off-site interactions before I actually went there. I never engaged with a discord group though.

46235 No.55674

>>55666
Thats unfortunate, I wish those types of users could investigate with their own eyes the evil off-site cliques so their opinions aren’t purely speculation and conjecture.

>>55667
While I agree that offsite chatrooms are totally different beast with pros and cons which greatly differ from those found on imageboards my question had more to do with how Wizchan and its userbase would be directly harmed as a result of these chatrooms (continued) existence. Offsite chats are as old as the site itself including feels, wizardly.fun, IRC, steam groups or discords. With that in mind I would be very grateful if anyone could provide me with some literal examples of chatrooms doing harm since we already have quite a few hypothetical scenarios listed.

On the topic of users no longer being anonymous I would argue that so long as the wizchan rules are strictly enforced having personal accountability to the adherence of said rules may actually raise the quality of discuss significantly. Shitposters and rule breakers are very quickly removed thanks to this knowledge as well. Theres a reason why mods have to be able to tell the users on wizchan apart because without that knowledge they would be firing blind. Obviously if the rules are not enforced and shitposting is tolerated then your points are valid but I do not believe that to be the case inside of “successful” wizchan chats.

>>55669
Im not going to take the position that discord isn’t infested with cancer since the entire internet is but if we were going to follow your thread of logic to its ultimate conclusion then we should stop using wizchan itself since most chans are just as bad as most discords. Its not the tool that is at fault, its how people use it. I may be mistaken but it sounds like you are unaware of the fact that there has been a wizchan discord already for over 2 years and it maintains the same rules as wizchan still to this day.

>>55672
You have every right to be disgusted.

Cliques associated with an imageboard are not good. It's not really a problem if a wizard chooses to talk with some rando on his own but not from here.

This is literally the worst case scenario. Before I just thought that the owner just stopped caring, but if the admin is going out of his way to unban shitposters then there is truly no hope.

Sounds like the admin wants to kill this site but in a slow and subtle manner. If he just pulls the plug on the site, someone else will make a new WC. Same goes for if he makes an abrupt change to the rules that he knows wizards would hate, that would actually motivate someone to make a new WC and wizards would be motivated to leave this site for the new one. But this slow burn method ensures the community dies off permanently.

Perhaps it's better this way though? We've already went through one major migration, and in just a handful of years we're already at the point where another migration is being seriously talked about. The outside world has gotten much worse during these past few years as well, and the internet even more so. How many years will our third refuge last? Three years? Two? Is it even worth it at this point?

I have no idea what ‘ceaseless gay spam and erp’ means to you, but I moderate this website about 15 hours every day and have not seen ‘ceaseless’ spam and have absolutely never seen anyone erping. If you think no one has ever been banned for making certain posts on /b/ then you would be incorrect, I keep notes on every single /b/ poster to weed out real normalfags and ensure it remains a fun board for wizards to spend their time if low quality posting is their thing. If you don’t enjoy low quality random discussions and the nuances that come with that then feel free to browse the many other boards we have available.

Introduction

I am wizard in his mid 30s who has been using wizardchan since the original site was created in 2012. I only mention this to give a bit of background info so that others can understand where I am coming from. In recent years, I have seen the post quality decline exponentially. While I am aware that nostalgia can heavily influence one's perception of the quality of the past, I have reviewed old threads I have archived and came to the conclusion that not only was the post quality overall higher, but my interactions with other users was far more genuine compared to now. As far as who the culprits of Wizardchan's comparatively poor post quality are, I have identified 3 archetypes responsible at least 80 percent of Wizardchan's demise.

The Improvebruh
• Does not care about this site or it's culture, is only here to shill for nofap or other improvebruh shit.
• Tries to revise history and gaslight other users into thinking Wizardchan was always against hentai and masturbation when this is demonstrably false.
• Has a severe superiority complex. Loves to lecture others and views this site as an ideal audience to do so to as he views the user base of this site as beneath him.
• Larps as a "truwiz" despite clearly being an outsider.
• Calls everyone who calls out his shilling a "crab" even though he is one himself. Internally rationalizes being a larping crab by thinking everyone on this site is secretly a crab anyway.

The /r9k/ crossposter
• Uses words like "cringe" "schizo" and "boomer" as insults.
• Posts mostly in greentext format.
• Uses reaction pics in every argument, often smug anime succubi.
• Posts trap/tranny/bbc content.
• Only comes to wizardchan when he isn't getting the amount of (You)s he desires on /r9k/.

The gayposter
• Still hasn't outgrown his "lol so randumb" phase, mentally 11 years old.

I realize I'm replying to a troll, but I think its important to point out that while WC was technically born out of r9k, it was partially made as a response to the normification that was taking place there even back in 2012. But even compared to 2012, the culture of r9k is so radically different that its a completely different place entirely. Even back in 2012 like half of r9k were on the older end of millennials that had been using 4chan since at least 2008 or earlier. Those are the main ones who originally migrated from r9k to WC. The r9k of today is almost entirely zoomers who never experienced the old internet which is the main reason why the culture is so much different. But since you're a zoomer, your knowledge of the old 4chan and the old WC are based solely on secondhand accounts, which is why you don't get it. You're also too narcissistic to understand that you can't fully understand a culture that you were never a part of, which is why you write with such conviction despite being ignorant.
