Has anyone ever been close to or has been caught in the act of getting of before? In public or private? I've jacked off in public a few times but I made sure the few people around could not see or hear me. But never completely out in the open. >inb4 old article--still relevant though https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/4wb4m9/blackburn-man-does-five-lines-of-cocaine-has-a-forty-minute-wank-in-a-beer-garden-is-arrested-303

Why /b/admin? Why did you set it as Off-Topic? Explain yourself please.

>>

>>225744 I'm with you here, normally I don't give a flying fuck about what gets off topic but this is so inconsistent I have to conclude /b/ad is plainly crap at his job. In https://ccluster.com/b/thread/201570#203248 /b/ad said (and I quote) >What you are asking for is something that is subjective and therefore hard to concretely define and create rules for beyond what I have already written and the dictionary definitions of the words. That is why I am open to feedback and compromise if you feel anything is unfair. >Generally, I will off topic advice, porn, girl worship, and attention whore threads. If I am unsure whether something is on or off topic, I will consult Gadette directly. Since there is almost an infinite amount of thread scenarios, it's hard to write down a "law" describing what would be on or off topic. This thread, even if shitty (sorry chum, the topic kinda sucks), will fit perfectly in /b/ as on topic, furthermore /b/ad didn't discussed nor provided the promised feedback. In other words he didn't do his job, just judged this thread off his tastes and off topic'd it. I think /b/ad should be replaced, he is not good at it.

>>225742 how do you define original exactly? https://archived.moe/_/search/boards/b.de.rp.talk/text/public%20masterbation/ >>225744 my reason for off topic´ing this thread is because it's an uninteresting fetish topic i've seen discussed into the ground. it seems my decision is not approved of so i've changed it back to on topic. >>225903 give me a break, i didn't check the posts in this thread until now. i expedite my services as much as i can. Please explain how i've been inconsistent and how you'd moderate the board better.

>>

>>225906 >my reason for off topic´ing this thread is because it's an uninteresting fetish topic That's exactly the problem, /b/ad. You're on/off-topicing threads based in your personal tastes. While certain degree of judgement is unavoidable when moderating it seems you tend to only select what you think is appropriate based on your own personal scale and that's less than optimal. >Please explain how i've been inconsistent and how you'd moderate the board better. I truly hate you in this moment, why are you making me doing your job? https://ccluster.com/b/thread/218688 While Boxxy threads are un-original and frankly retarded, the topic is 100% harmless and belongs on /b/, furthermore it would guarantee haters response which could trigger a discussion and/or fun trolling. https://ccluster.com/b/thread/223824 A chum commenting on how he lost the porn of his USB drive, it wasn't a request, it wasn't anything but a comment you promptly moved off topic because.... I frankly don't know why, are you a Google bot? The mere mention of porn will cause an automatic off topic? https://ccluster.com/b/thread/221149 A picture of kids with artificial legs, stupid and unnecessarily edgy, potentially offensive, ideal for shit posting, it could have ensued activity of the 13 y/o here, activity. After all it's random, but no. https://ccluster.com/b/thread/223562 A joke. Why it was moved off topic is completely beyond me. (0/1)

>>

>>225936 https://ccluster.com/b/thread/222933 Another attempt of trolling the chums, it also awoken some enough to respond, moving it off topic killed it's momentum. https://ccluster.com/b/thread/221649 A very typical /b/ (in other chan's /b/ that is) thread, it does fit in the forbidden categories, however it what attracts people and discussions, while any gmod would kill any picture that could be deemed illegal. My point is we don't have a user-base large enough to keep the leash so tight over Random. While you're attentive to the content you let your own tastes rule over the very concept of the board and thus frustrating the few chums that wants to post something, even if retarded. (1/1)

>>

>>225937 As a final note I've said this twice before: /b/ needs two moderators, it needs to have a better distribution of privileges to prevent this kind of situations; I wouldn't do a better job than you, but that doesn't mean you're doing a good job either.

>>225936 https://ccluster.com/b/thread/218688 photospam i've seen a million times before https://ccluster.com/b/thread/223824 the only discussion that could come from this are advice/request related and dumping porn https://ccluster.com/b/thread/221149 photospam https://ccluster.com/b/thread/223562 hardly a joke, little to no content https://ccluster.com/b/thread/222933 thinly veiled pedo thread, and the "spot the amount of X in this photo?" puzzle is so interesting it's slapped on the back of every children's cereal box. not sure how that is trolling https://ccluster.com/b/thread/221649 photospam thread i've seen a million times i hope that clarifies my train of thought, and not even just my own, because several of these i've brought to gad's attention because i was confused as to whether or not they were on/off topic.

>>

>>225936 to add >my reason for off topic´ing this thread is because it's an uninteresting fetish topic >That's exactly the problem, /b/ad. You're on/off-topicing threads based in your personal tastes. While certain degree of judgement is unavoidable when moderating it seems you tend to only select what you think is appropriate based on your own personal scale and that's less than optimal. uninteresting was the wrong word to use. i wasn't using it to refer to my own personal tastes, but that i've seen this thread dozens and hundreds of times before, it is a constant topic posted about on other random boards.

>>

>>225949 Understand me, I don't personally hate you, I don't mind your off topics, I've posted several threads in /b/ that are still on topic and some that wen't off topic too, I don't care their fates in either case. What I do critisize is your explanation for off-topic, it relies 98% in your personal taste, not in clear, objective rules. When I asked for rules in https://ccluster.com/b/thread/201570#203241 your answer was vague and uncompromising, and I quote: >What you are asking for is something that is subjective and therefore hard to concretely define and create rules for beyond what I have already written and the dictionary definitions of the words. As refresher I'll paste here a portion of the FAQ: >As a random board, /b/ is a place for users to post anything without restriction of topic. However, to maintain an interesting board culture that is random in nature, threads will be categorized into on and off topic. Threads that contain original content and constructive discussion are on topic and very much encouraged on /b/, while mundane or redundant threads that would be more fitting to post on another board are off topic. On the front page, one of the most recent off topic threads will be shown for every three of the most recent on topic threads. These measures are taken to promote and give preference to original and interesting content, but anything goes and no posts will be pruned. (0/1)

>>

>>225951 Your original criteria is original and constructive, but those are horrendously subjective classifications, it looks more like a cop-out than a clear rule. I know this is an exercise of futility, you won't change your moderation style, Gad won't assign a second moderator to prevent this abuse and you'll be /b/ad until you decide to leave the position if that ever happens, but this is what I understand as constructive dialog, if from this critics you refine your moderation then I would consider this thread as something useful for the future. If not... that won’t change anything in my life, I decided long ago to barely post in /b/, opting for any other board instead. (1/1)

>>225938 Every board has two default moderators

>>

>>225953 Really? The other moderator of /b/ can set threads on and off topic? Or are you talking about Gad and /b/ad? I don't think I'm following you.

>>225936 >Boxxy threads are un-original and frankly retarded This means war...

>>

>>225958 It means nothing, which is more or less the impact of boxxy threads on others.

OP here. I take no offense to people who call my threads shitty--I only make them so we have something to talk about anyways. I'd rather see a new thread or two a day versus 0-1 posts on the entire site per day. Here's an idea to throw out for /b/ad: When you decide to Off-topic a thread, provide your reason for doing so, so people won't get on your case about it later like they did here.

>>

>>225966 >I only make them so we have something to talk about anyways Can't be more agree with you.

>>

One time in like 10th grade or something I fapped through my clothes in the middle of class. The desks were organized in rows of 2, 2 on each side, so kinda like this: >> << >> << >> << >> << X> << >> <Z >> << >> << I sat on at the X and I'm pretty sure the person at Z knows because we definitely made eye contact. Thankfully that was almost 10 years ago. I was fapping to some 2D that I was remembering

>>

I have never been caught in the act. In 7/8th grade I would get hard in class then went to the washroom and jacked off while thinking about girls in my class.

>>

>>225966 You're the cancer killing /b Stop making cancerous 4chan tier threads.

>>225951 >>225952 Gad suggested changing the FAQ to something simpler and less subjective, as in listing examples of off topic threads (porn/image dump/request/copypaste/reposts). He also said that on topic threads should be creative things that keep the board random. Keeping this in mind and since you have a lot to say on the matter, how do you think the FAQ and board rules should be rewritten to be more effective and less subjective? Is listing a handful of off-topic examples and giving a vague statement describing what on topic threads should be enough?

>>

>>226019 >since you have a lot to say on the matter Not really, I'm trying to be clear and concise which in my personal case is a lost battle as I tend to type too much. I own two boards, one has a very defined theme, so it's easy, whatever doesn't fits into the theme it goes off topic. The other, however, is as nebulous as /b/ I got the board by chance from a chum that left, right now the only criteria is do not post anything illegal, which is basically the site rules. That also means I had to deal with autistic screechings and idiotic topics that I found personally boring. But I decided to align to my own rules and leave those threads be. Most worthless topics sorted by themselves withering and disappearing by lack of attention. To answer your question, random: ran·dom ˈrandəm adjective 1. made, done, happening, or chosen without method or conscious decision. "a random sample of 100 households" synonyms: unsystematic, unmethodical, arbitrary, unplanned, undirected, casual, indiscriminate, nonspecific, haphazard, stray, erratic. As I see it you have two options, either you go to the anarchy route or the dictatorial route. (0/1)

>>

>>226020 Anarchy route: List in the FAQ the list of thing you won't allow at /b/, stick to it and let the retardation run free. Pro: More diversity of topics on topic. In the mountain of shitty topics real discussions will happen, you will find jewels in the turd ocean. Cons: The turd ocean, some topics will become extremely recurrent, sadly those are the ones currently listed in your FAQ. Dictatorial route: Your board, your rules, regardless the name state clearly in the FAQ the on/off topic system will reflect your opinions, whoever don't like it they can use another board. It's a fair warning and people will have to adapt or leave. Pro: A very homogeneous board, that will filter in time the users to gather a community of people you will like as they'll think as you do. Cons: By limiting the randomness you will miss unexpected good contributions. Also a hoard of autistic screech that will last for months. Of course these are just my suggestions, as I said before I don't think I could make a better job than you, I'm using both models for my boards and they work, you can't please everyone so that's that. (1/1)

>>

>>226022 Final note: Having in consideration what I said before, in your place I would go to the dictatorial route, it's harsh and will cause hate at first but the chums will adapt, the site won't die and you'll have a nice board. Either case the faq should contain the list of things that you won't allow and a very clear note stating you have the final word (and Gad, but that's obvious). tl;dr: Own the fact you moderate according to your own tastes, and keep it consistent, you'll get hate, but also you'll get less complaints in time because the rules are clear.

>>

>>225674 (to OP: sorry for derailing your thread so hard, it wasn't my intention, really)

>>

>>226020 >Says the tard that locked all the threads he doesn't like

>>

How about we don't have an FAQ The retarded badmin is just going to off topic threads he don't like anyways. There is no point on starting a new thread on this board anymore. Its the furthest thing from random.

>>

>>225674 >Thread about masturbating >On Topic Badmin must of made this thread.

>>226035 >>226037 >>226038 Did you even bother to read the whole thread before making it painfully obvious you have some sort of mental retardation?

>>226035 Which board you talking about?

>>225978 >uses 4cuck meme to oust supposed 4cuckery Hypocrite much? At least I'm making the effort to create a thread here and there unlike most of the users here... >>226024 Doesn't bother me any. Again, all I care about is spurring activity on the site.
