When can crystal cafe have a zine? All the cool hipster imageboards are doing it, why can't we?

what does the process usually look like in communities like this? would contribute something like art / essays

Anonymous 2677

One or a group of people take care of the editing and "publishing". At the start of the month, a thread asking for submissions is posted, and users submit content. The submission period usually lasts until a few days or a week before the publication date. What the users provide is then compiled into this month's zine and released.

That's mostly how it goes.

Anonymous 2678

This sounds like a fun idea. Like >>2665 I'd contribute art or writing if one is made.



This is a really cool idea. I absolutely love coming across zines from smaller communities, and being a part of making one for a community I actually participate in would be a fun project.

I would be interested in helping organize this. What I would like to see in a zine from here includes essays about experiences or feels, poetry, thoughts on the world, that sort of thing; comics, oc, collages, anything artistic; or things like that. As an inaugural issue, it would be interesting to loosely focus on the experiences we've had in online spaces and how it affects our lives, just to keep things closer to the board itself, but other topics would be great as well.

I'd have to think about this in more depth; these are just my immediate thoughts. I would contribute myself. I enjoy writing, some image editing, and making art, but I think my technical skills are lacking in putting something like this together as a finished product. I'd have to do some research and learn more.

I'll leave an email in case anyone else is interested. Hopefully that's okay. If you do email me, just let me know in what capacity you'd like to contribute, if you have a vision for a cc zine, if you just have something you'd like included in it, or anything else related. If interest is expressed in actually creating one of these things I'll see about setting something up.

hi anon, i sent you an email! also responding here in case others would like to see it; i have experience designing, printing, and putting together books/booklets due to my major as a designer so i'd love to be a part of this project if it moves forward. i also enjoy illustrating on the side.

being online is a pretty big part of me, and i think it would be cool to create content about it with others that feel the same way.

I'm worried that there are lots of men pretending to be girls here. Maybe I'm seeing things wrong but there are too many posts which just ooze a very "male imageboard user" feeling. I can't be the only one seeing this posts which read like a re-written /r9k/ post.

"There are no girls on the internet."
Internet is not real life, the distinction is meaningless here, was the original meaning I believe.
It was lost on most people.

yeeting away from …

Given that I've seen /r9k/ repeatedly make threads about CC because (shocker) moids are creepy and don't respect women's privacy, that's probably why there seems to be little surges of anons who read as LARPing moids/incels. I've reported the threads as raid encouragements but the 4chan mods don't seem to care that much.

I'm really trying to break away from 4chan in general. The lingo can be fun and direct but it's also very negative and unproductive at times too. I used 4chan mainly for fandom content and I'm currently weighing my options for better places to get it from. I enjoyed Tumblr in the early 2010's despite its major flaws, and I wish there was a similar semi-popular site that worked like old tumblr + that one extension bar but already put into the website itself.

Amino app is popular and less polluted with Twitter trash but the app itself is messy as fuck and populated mainly by minors and pedos seeking out those minors, basically just like Twitter.

I love y'all so much, thank you for all that you do here. You do great work, I've seen some of the crap you have to clean up and all I can really say is godspeed + I wish eyebleach was a thing.
I still have to remind myself not to reply to bad bait posts and manage my time better.

It's hit or miss on every board or even general. /r9k/ has zero enforced moderation except for lawbreaking stuff, meanwhile you get instabanned for multiple weeks if you post a soy wojak on /vg/

Anonymous 2092[Reply]

Anyone else think we should forbid symbols of R9K and 4chan in the future? I browse a few 2D orientated boards & they're usually taboo, & the boards are cozy.

Imo the reasons for this would be:

1. These are big symbols of men, as long as we use them we're still sort of connected to 4C. Nobody wants that, I'm sure. Let's leave them behind.
2. Think of all the posts you've seen here with a frog, wojak, or something like that attached. Has it ever been good? Has it ever truly contributed to the thread at large, or at has it just been attached to b8 or a 1 word reply?
3. They're just ugly and lack originality.
We should come up with our own memes, y'know.

Here's a poll.

The CECE the Lizard Memes were my fav

Anonymous 2703

Upon first reading this thread about a month ago, the idea of banning someone just for posting a certain image seemed a bit overkill, but after browsing here daily for a while longer I've begun noticing that almost all instances of pepe/wojak-posting are done by males (either openly or in an attempt to disguise themselves as female) or part of obvious low-effort troll posts and bait. Making a rule prohibiting the posting of pepes, wojaks, and their derivatives (even the "female" versions which, again, are almost always used by males or in bait) could serve as a way to spot obvious males who think we also post those memes just because we're an imageboard. Maybe the bans issued for this could be short ones in case a genuine female poster just misunderstood the rule. Along with that, posters who do want to post/share those images could do so in some kind of designated thread (there's a soyjak/wholesome wojak thread in /img/) or a reaction image thread. (Cece the lizard memes should clearly be exempt from the rule since you'd have to be familiar with this site to know of their existence.)

That being said, I do think some of the proposed ideas in this thread (banning all anime girl images, banning posters for "incorrectly" greentexting which could happen simply due to an English language barrier, banning language commonly used on other imageboards) goes a bit far. Given that many miners arrived here from other imageboards and are clearly familiar with the culture, enjoying anime or understanding the meanings and implications of imageboard terminology doesn't always indicate a poster's sex. If a post that contains these things is low-effort, it can be removed and the poster can receive a ban simply for it being low-effort, nothing more.

i found this image board on accident while searching for female wojaks
(pic related) so i think it would be a shame if they were banned
>>2131 i'm not sure about "shotas" but i'm def down to using more bishies if the worst were to happen

Anonymous 2706


Wojaks are used on other image boards, not only 4C, though pepe is def a /pol/ icon nowadays. I don't mind em and they can def be la de to reference female interests.

The only reasons for these threads to exist is flaming and trolling. Can't you do something, mods? It's annoying to wake up every day and see this garbage bumped.

but there isn't an explicit rule against starting multiple threads about the same topic, I think it would be best if it were clearly spelled out.

You're right, it used to be part of the news section underneath the reply form, but it isn't anymore. I'll add it back because it's clearly needed, and I'll update the rules.

is 5'7 considered tall? is being tall bad?

If you're white, then no, you're average height.

I am 5'10. I love being tall. It is not a bad thing, I personally think it makes you more attractive! 5'7 is a normal height.
