Can we stop the shitposting on /g/ by giving everybody a unique, randomized ID tied to their IP like /soc/ has? We can learn from redditttt.

>>32532613 No, anonymity is a precious thing you can't get almost anywhere else on the internet anymore Its on /b/ to stop stupid insane samefagging Rebbit hates your freedoms, boasting a spiteful circlejerk about anyone who disagrees with the conglomerate is instantly downvoted and the post physically moves down the board instead of standing still

/soc/ actually gives you a different ID for each thread, so while it's useful for following conversations, it won't stop shitposting.

I walk into reddit, i see that is sort of board, not imageboard , only enables discuss news. Oh shit man is a ugly website, is a large blog

The only way to get rid of shitposting is thread ID's, like /b/ has. Way too much samefagging happens in /g/ and the samefaggers would look like idiots replying to themselves with thread ID.

>>32532776 The unique ID should be tied to your IP and be the same across all boards, with secure trips banned.

>>32532729 Nobody is saying that downvotes should be added. Just randomized IDs and the banning of all trip codes.

There's a board (maybe 99chan?) that generates random names based on the combination of your IP and the thread, so rather than anonymous, you'll have a name like "Wilson Cortez" or something. Pretty amusing.

>>32532804 >Way too much samefagging happens in /g/ Case in point, the desktop, battlestation and /g/ humor threads. And the humour threads are the worst because not only is it samefags posting the same images over and over they also act as a beacon to all newfags on the board.

>>32532909 Because it was so full of cancer that everybody was samefagging and tripfagging, so to try to reduce a bit the cancer they did this. Now you know "who" is posting so people can not suck their own dick or believe themselves the gods of /b/ It is still full of 13yo Anonymous wannabes, though.

You can tell that a lot of threads are samefags. I want to see /g/ have thread ID's for one day. You would notice the "/g/ humor," thinkpad shilling, and shit no one cares about that somehow gets loads of replies is 50% samefag bumping their thread with pretend replies to themself
