View Full Version : The Final GCT - General Chat Thread

In order to reformat the forum, the staff decided to break up the GCT.

The General Chat Thread started as a momentum builder when the forum was at its early days to bring in traffic. Now that we have grown to include many game discussions beyond Kancolle and many non-game related discussions, we feel that GCT has outlived its usefulness. It is the part of the forum that demands the most effort from the staff due to its fast turnover but brings in the least substantial benefit to the forum as a whole.

To aid you with the transition, this post will serve as an index to direct some of the common types of daily banter posts found in GCT to their appropriate new homes. As always, substantial topics deserve their own threads so please navigate the homepage and post them in appropriate forums.

For KC game related discussion/questions:

Thank you for being a part of GCT all this time and we appreciate your support. Hopefully this transition will be as painless as possible. To aid you with the transition, this GCT will last up to 500 pages. The usual forum rules apply. At the same time please make an attempt at posting in various parts of the forum as suggested above.

EDIT: Some requested chatrooms for "chat" like discussions, Although Himeuta will most likely never have an "official" chatroom, there are user generated chatrooms that are associated with Himueta(NOT AFFILIATED with it). If you do feel the need to utilize one of these chatrooms the links are here:

Kalinsre: https://discord.gg/QJvs3Za
Leyana: https://discord.gg/0WG418Su5KGwqjJy
Riepah: https://discord.gg/hRYGuPz
Tomzai: https://discord.gg/rcjdHqJ


Keep in mind that these chat rooms run by their own set of rules and NOT by forum rules, and Himeuta takes no responsibility for what happens in there, even though it may seem like many of the users in there are from the forum.

Thank you, and

It's understandable, a fair chunk (40~50%) of GCT where topics that could of been held in other sub forums, a good 20% was stuff the forum could do without and just general clutter. I do agree there's plenty of different places a good % of the topics can go.

However I just hope that this is a trial thing to see if it works and it's not completely "never again" and that there is discussion of a more real-time chatroom being affiliated with the forum. GCT actually filled a niche that would be easier managed in a chatroom that's easily pruned and managed over a forum topic.
There'll be a lot more threads created after all since you can't just megathread everything if you break the megathread.

Wouldn't it be possible to add a warning to GCT instead, informing everyone that, due to the fast turnover, complete moderation can't be guaranteed, as it would take too much effort away from more important things, and that one enters GCT at one's own risk? I really don't think it's necessary to have moderators watching GCT closely, just responding to reports would be enough.

Well this sucks.

Where are we now supposed to discuss just regular life stuff such as Azuraai's harem shenanigans, my crippling alcoholism and funny ''meme'' posts for example?
Doubt that will fit into news/politics/current events.

But if something positive comes out of this, it's that this will surely liven up the other subforums and threads.

1. Yes we are rather flexible and we don't think this will be a "never again" thing. If situations call for it we can bring back something similar.
2. As for chatrooms, there are various ones. I know that Leyana has one and I have one, but please know (and spread the word) that there is NO official Himeuta discord/chatroom, and whatever one you join that has Himeuta users are NOT affiliated with us in any way and we take no responsibility for things happening in them.

I think there was some confusion about that and I just want to get that cleared up.

No because if you state that GCT isn't modded then that would give rise to risky behavior such as the sharing of outright pornography/child pornography or other things that may put users/the forum at legal risks.

12-22-2016, 07:39 PM
Fog The reason I mention that is back in 2001~2003 the forum I had basically had a whole subforum that was GCT.. the turn over was 5~+ pages of threads daily but a lot of them only got a few posts, some getting ignored and some where just outright spam. It calmed down significantly to be more.. important thing and less spam posts once they had an off-site chatroom. Of course general interest in the forum was also dying and the chatroom only lasted a year before it got abandoned and the forum died a few months after.

Nerfx I can live without Fudas "memes".

Kalinsre One question however is, will this thread stay open for the traditional 2000 pages, will it be closed after a a day/week to get people to adjust or what. If you leave it as was it's not going to solve the problem.

Kalinsre I'm blind and can't read red text apparently. I read everything else.

I would say having an official chat-room area linked to the site would be better than having users split up in multiple 3rd-party ones though. Primarily because you only need to have timezone-based moderation spread over the day to keep it in check to stop it running rampant, unless the chatroom hit 30+ active people at once it would be pretty manageable. I know that'd be a staffing issue thoug so I can understand if "We don't have the staff" would be a reason for it not happening.

Nerfx But I feel uncomfortable around those flower fuckers because I'm a dirty casual

But that's exactly what the report function is for, isn't it? I'm not saying that GCT should be a place where the rules don't matter, just that it shouldn't be necessary to have someone watching at all times. No forum has every thread under permanent supervision 24/7, and I don't think anyone expects that level of moderation in the first place.

KotoNano Well the truth of the matter is there are chatrooms ran by people of this forum but they are never really affiliated with Himeuta. Do you want me to put up links to my and Leyana's chatroom then? I can do that if you guys believe it will help redirect people and banter, but at the same time I do not want to cause it to lose more traffic than necessary.

If I do end up doing that I will have to put the disclaimer though because it's been a rule among the staff that we do not create "official" chatrooms.

I will reply to the other questions after lunch in about 15 minutes.

Kalinsre To be honest, I don't really like the idea of CGT being closed, and all the news threads created are only KC related, so we don't have a place anymore for your daylies off topic discussions.
And I think we will loose ppl as KC only news are too slow spaced to keep Himeuta as lively as CGT did.

Edit: a chatroom may not be a good alternative as we will only be able to take part of current discussion, with no way to check what happen when we were away

12-22-2016, 07:52 PM

Well you can just have it as an embedded chatroom, so it appears on the site, rather than being linked elsewhere but I can understand those reasons amongs others for not having one (such as having an embedded one would make page layout larger and such)
But yeah I'll stop bringing that up, I was just throwing it up as an alternative to having a mega-thread that can be awkward to moderate.

@Fog (http://himeuta.org/member.php?u=9339) I mostly play on the SFW version, because you have to relog in when you change between normal and 18+ sites, meaning that I'd have to relog each time I change between FKG and KC if I was to play the adult version.
I just use the adult version to see the CG scenes when I'm in the mood to, I usually don't go through them anyway.

I feel similarly. Most of my time spent on Himeuta was spent in GCT. I don't play any of the other games on offer - aside from WoWs, and I really don't have a lot to say about WoWs, most of the time - and for KanColle itself, the wikia is my primary source of information. Himeuta was a nice addition during events, and I especially liked the fact that you could ask little questions on GCT and get a response pretty quickly - not to mention that GCT was a great way to pass the time while farming as well.

Riepah Major decisions like this are a bit difficult for everyone especially since for a lot of people, it will feel like we're ripping down their home and turning it into some shiny shopping complex; but, a lot of discussion has gone into this over months (if not even longer) and we believe that this will beneficial to the community.

The community itself is not going anywhere unless you guys all decide to pack up and leave. I'm confident that for topics such as asking for help, people will be just as willing to help (and perhaps even moreso) in a more organized format where you can start a thread for more visibility. It will also help more people who have the same question rather than just getting blown away like a fart in the wind after a few pages.

It will also help more people who have the same question rather than just getting blown away like a fart in the wind after a few pages.

The one time that I've posted a question related to a game in said game's dedicated thread recently, I never received a response. I figure nobody knew the answer, and that's fine - but on GCT, people would have been able to say so, without feeling like they are posting spam - and it wouldn't have felt like the question went ignored.
The good thing about GCT, is that it doesn't hurt anyone if another person asks the same question a few days later, because they'll receive a quick response again. In a dedicated thread, they'd be expected to read a dozen pages before even asking their question, to avoid asking a question that has possibly already been answered before. And then they might end up having read said dozen of pages, only to find that their question indeed hadn't been asked, and that they just wasted their time.

It will also help more people who have the same question rather than just getting blown away like a fart in the wind after a few pages.

I for one do agree with a lot of the reasoning behind it, there has been plenty of things brought up, asked, or talked about that could have been more simply made a topic in another subsection. There is going to be a knee-jerk reaction and general conversation will slow by a chunk. Some people who are here only for the GCT will probably rarely turn up for event information, others will become significantly less active if they aren't already part of one of the other enclosed communities (WoWs/FKG/etc) but I believe that initially will just be because they are unsure of what to do or where to post.

I'm sure it's been discussed and that the main thing that's going to take a hit is posts/day on the forum, in exchange for a small boost to threads/week. Even those that don't leave might not be on as often or daily anymore. I know I'll just go back to my old posting habits, responding and asking a few questions now and then and posting on maintenence/event based threads and maybe a couple of the more detailed ones.

Speaking off: That AA discussion video explaining how upgrades and AA work really should of had it's own thread. That kind of thing NEEDS it's own thread. Why the hell isn't that it's own thread yet.

Also really, a lot of you have made good friends here. It should be a simple matter to take that onto Discord since that autologs messages for everyone to see server-side.

Wow, pop back in before i head out and i see there might not bee a GCT when i get back. Considering this is my main draw to the forum, we'll have to see if there's enough interesting going on when i get back to see if i remain here.

Those saying discord is a thing are right in a way, but i will missing the reading back through the nonsense every morning and the sense of community these threads had and i don't really bother with the discord's i'm in because they move way too fast and doesn't feel the same.

Anyway, its been fun, maybe i'll see you guys around when i get back, hopefully we have the same topic to discuss so we can actually interact

KotoNano
12-22-2016, 08:32 PM
Jifaru true, the calculation is nasty but then you can always edit the opening thread for any new discoveries and fixes to the calculation. Part of why having it in the guides section would be great. I know a lot of people, those that don't view GCT for example would appreciate AA and AA-cut in information being explained in detail. That stuff has always just been left as vague "use Maya and her AACI and don't worry about anything else". The new ability to have an extra slot JUST for AA-guns might bring up the question, is having the extra slot with an upgraded AA-gun worth it?
That's something I'd like to see figured out.


Actually.. Speaking of new threads to make I need to start waking myself up, getting out and start up that photography I was going to do. I have plenty of Nendoroids so I can adapt it to practice with those too instead of just my maidens.

Lord Harrab Pretty much the same for me, I like the slower format of GCT since you can come on, post to someone and come back in half an hour then reply to their reply. Discord is too fast and the server is too full to really get to know people like on here.

RIP GCT. I never really found a reason to post, this is one of those things I feel are you're 100% in or 100% out. But I could see the reason many people came to the forum on non-event days was for just the idle chat here. Kinda of sad to see it go even though I wasn't a part of it.

First and last GCT post. I don't need GCT to stay on Himeuta. But I hope there'll be people left in the places I do post in.

Kalinsre So to put it short you guys want to bring more traffic to other parts of the forum or is it just that GCT is too much work to moderate/look over?

If the latter is the case couldn't you guys just ask volunteers to watch that nothing prohibited happens?
Like i read the whole GCT almost religiously daily anyway so if i can offer help with monitoring GCT and notify you guys if something happens that wouldn't be much of a bother to me.

Those saying discord is a thing are right in a way, but i will missing the reading back through the nonsense every morning and the sense of community these threads had and i don't really bother with the discord's i'm in because they move way too fast and doesn't feel the same.


Yep, exactly my feelings as well. I've considered setting up a GCT homeless shelter Discord channel, but it just wouldn't be the same to begin with - and if GCT ever made a return, transitioning back into it might not work so well, either.

A little bit of both.
On one hand, this was supposed to be a forum that includes a chat thread, but it is more and more becoming a chatroom with a forum attached. It kind of defeats the whole purpose of other boards. It's devolved into a disorganized clique-y mess.
On the other hand, it is a nightmare to moderate. This is a forum, NOT a twitch chat, and yet this thread is more like a twitch chat. I don't think the majority of the personnel resources should go into watching what people are saying real time. Moderating something with high turnover where people constantly butt head with each other is not something a forum mod should engage in. Also, unlike a twitch chat, there is no distinct beginning or end, as a twitch chat ends when a stream ends but this is on 24/7. This is more of a fundamental problem on a philosophical level than the explanation that "we lack people".

Riepah
12-22-2016, 08:53 PM
Moderating something with high turnover where people constantly butt head with each other is not something a forum mod should engage in.

To be fair, there haven't been a whole lot of big drama occurrences in GCT as far as I can tell. I recall about 3 instances where mod intervention was necessary in the last few months, one was a lewd signature and two were drama, but definitely nothing that would require 24/7 supervision.

This forum has a report function, and I think removing the requirement for a moderator to read every single post is the very reason such a report function exists in the first place. There was never a need for every post of GCT to be read - 95% of it were completely harmless posts that didn't break any rules. A lot of it may have been boring to read and lacking substance, I can definitely see why it would be considered a huge load of work to sift through it all, but I think GCT could exist just fine if moderators relied on the report function to tell them when they're needed, and took it easy aside from that.

Kalinsre
12-22-2016, 09:02 PM
Riepah Another possible solution discussed was to reduce the visibility of GCT so that it doesn't distract new users from formatted boards.

This would involve removing it from the sidebar and removing it from top 15.

This way the other parts of the forum will get new traffic, and the existing fans of GCT (you guys) will have a place to stay, but a private chatroom can achieve the same thing so we are not trying this approach right now.

Well, as it seems that this development is unstoppable at this time, I went ahead and created a GCT Shelter Discord channel, which I hope will only have to be a temporary solution until a proper GCT is returned on Himeuta.

It won't be anywhere close to feeling the same, but at least it will make it easier to stay in touch, have random conversations and let each other know when the real GCT is back.

Rules will be the same as we've come to be used to in GCT.

Everyone is welcome.

@Riepah (http://himeuta.org/member.php?u=14959) Honestly if people used the forum.. more than just it being for GCT then I think the thread itself would not go through such a rapid cycle of threads.
This is the 10th thread this year for GCT, Ironically this has gone down as there was 16 threads last year.
It is more to do with people being less active on the forum in general, but it was a very very used section of the forum for the last three-odd years.


Reasoning for it being closed are valid and rules have been broken multiple times or pushed to the limit so that's another important factor to counter in.
However I do encourage everyone to start using the forum more than just a slow paced chat room for those that only use GCT.


Anyway I am not joining any of these discords that get advertised because it'll just end up with how it did in @Leyana (http://himeuta.org/member.php?u=24)'s and I'll get kicked out again. Always works out that way.
except lolibutts. gladly prpr respectfully

Which rules have been broken, aside from the "no drama rule" twice in several months, and the "nothing too lewd" rule once or twice? Are we counting the "no saying good night without additional fluff text" offense I committed?

KotoNano
12-23-2016, 12:33 AM
What did you do? lol
Got into a mild argument and was told to just leave so I did. Wasn't really that big a deal honestly but that's just how it is. Didn't really have much fun in there in the first place honestly.
I'm someone who takes a while to get adjusted into communities and I'll have it note between my first GCT post and until I was posting daily in it, took an entire GCT topic worth of time.
(My first post was on page 1800~1900 of one. I didn't post more than 5 times until 1900+ of the following)

also this is the 45th GCT; lets talk about the number 45.

The essence of the number 45 is continually focused on making life better for people
Or to put the long and short of it. Closing GCT is focused on making the forum better for us all.

I cant believe you guys actually used me as part of the reason. :shoukaku_wat:


Anyway, here come a wall of texts, I would like you guys to read it but if you guys want to ignore it, i dont mind.


Its kinda sad to see GCT closing down soon. I could say here is where i spend most, not all my time here in Himeuta actually. I actually can count how many posts i made outside GCT (i could say less than 20 posts on World of Warships last time and....2 posts when i asked for help on the KC lottery). Some of we GCT regulars are already attached to GCT and probably most of us here use GCT to communicate and chat with each other. Not to mention some of us actually use GCT as part of their daily routine...

Well my point is, i understand that you guys might have some "manpower" issues regarding moderating the site, maybe here in GCT. But i'm pretty sure there's a way to compensate the manpower issue like for example put someone from the GCT regulars as a moderator(or observer...i cant find the word, sorry) that specificity for GCT alone, like KotoNano, Taber, PrimalBidoof or any other GCT regulars that you might find trustworthy. At least they can help you keep the GCT in check if any you real moderators are away or busy with your real world issues. I would love to volunteer myself but that's for you to decide.

Likewise, there's always a better solution than shutting down the GCT once and for all, like putting GCT out from the sidebars and Top 15...thingy. That sound like a good idea since that might help increase the traffic to other topic as well. But who am i kidding, that's for you guys to decide. But somehow, i think its better that you admin guys discuss this with other GCT regulars, perhaps that might able to help on this matter and bring a good result out of it. Who knows, discuss with the community might be a good idea afterall, we will never know until you guys try it.

Anyway, i'm completely ran out of idea at this moment and i might bring it up once i remember it. I know you might gonna ignore my suggestion (...whelp, i think my suggestions are already mentioned by the others anyway) but i really hope you guys put this into considerations. Seeing GCT gone is kinda sad to most GCT regulars here, including me.

Without further notice, i'll take my leave now.

KotoNano I kinda have the same thing with discords chats.
There tend to be so many people discussing already when i join a (somewhat) public chat and when i post i tend to get either ignored or i just can't find a moment or topic what to discuss without feeling like i'm intrusive.
So often i just kinda hang in there for a while and then just leave because what a fuck am i even doing there.

Leyana

Azuraai I mean I would place 90% of my posts to be in GCT. But I can tell that GCT has certainly become a mishmash of stuff that could be in other subforums or threads. GCT has gone through several changes before. We'll live through GCT getting axed.

We have a temporary refuge in Discord, where we'll cry over GCT's untimely demise, and pray for its salvation and rebirth. The link is in my signature.

Leyana Issit that what GCT is all about? I mean chat about almost anything in their mind or something? Well i completely agree with you that some discussion better on their own thread and sub-forums but there's a time where people just go into GCT just to ask certain questions...

Correct me if i'm wrong.

I don't know, time will tell. Discord is fine and all, but GCT is unique in its own way, and quite a few people seem to feel the same way. Maybe they'll hear our mewling and give it back.
