    Considering that there are so many rant threads that ended up with calling names, animals, and invoking miasmatic spirits; these rant threads had similar topic (rant against harem, JP, CN, xianxia protags, KR, etc); and that there are actually no real and meaningful discussion on these threads; I make a suggestion that from now on all thread of rants in nature to be collected and any users that want to rant against something that had been ranted before to rant in a single stickied post located in General Chat, titled: "NUF MEGA-RANT THREAD".
    With this, all rants will be collected in order in a single thread and not cluttering the other thread.
    Also, this thread will be minimally moderated, if users want to do Death Royal Rumble, let them be. Of course, general forum rules (no NSFW, no illegal link, etc) will still be enforced fully.

    Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    A concerned citizen.

    Ranting are for plebs who think they're opinions actually matter...

    nope it depends on the contents of the rant/critic/opinion/review they are usually used to improve products and a lot of things. As long as the ranter never goes to personal level(which often happens). It will also helps people to become aware of those certain things

    Reviews are more better than those meaningless rants.

    Most rants are simply just short opinions expressed in a very long and complicated paragraph.
    It's basically just like this: "I hate harem since it's shit" then it turns to "why can't they basically choose one person and stick with it. It's really disgusting on how...bla bla bla even more useless words bla bla bla."

    I guess I'm now ranting about how rants don't matter...

    Actually, I disagree with Yukkuri.

    Sure, most rants are pretty useless and poorly made, but every now and then, a rant that actually makes sense and provides meaninful discussion appears, I wouldn't want those rants to be thrown into the thread that gets all useless stuff together.

    Arc-chan even made a thread some time back talking about rant threads, but not saying that they are problematic, but that the replis they receive are problematic.

    So, I prefer to let people have their own rant threads instead of a mega rant thread... Not to mention things would easily get confusing if 2 people were ranting at the same time.

    What I against is a rant thread about stuff that had been ranted before.
    JP isekai stories had been ranted to death. The same with CN Xianxia stories. I lost count on how many harem, hypocrite MC, jade-skin and other women-depiction and rape rant threads in this forum. And this thread appears at least once per week as if the reader had forgotten that there were similar thread before.
    Not every rants need to be squished. But on some topic, it's like flogging a dead horse.

    I don't deny it, rather, I'm also annoyed by the same rants over and over again with the exact same arguments... I just don't think it's nice to put them on the same boat as actual well made rants.

    Then I think we need to make an unofficial rule.

    This is a good rant:
    I think democracy is flawed. For democracy to work, all citizen need to be at least intellectually sound. Ignorant citizen in a democracy will result in a tyranny of a majority. ETC ETC ETC ETC. Quote from Socrates. ETC ETC ETC ETC. Comparison between democracy in Athena, Rome Republic, Medieval Republic, and 1800's USA. ETC ETC ETC. Conclusion: Democracy is flawed, but it's the lesser evil than the other systems.

    This is a bad rant:
    Democracy is stupid. You elect a clown.
    END.

    Bad rant needs to be purged. Good rant needs to be discussed in civil.

    I guess? Well, I either make a copy paste of previous posts I made in that kind of thread, or I troll a bit whenever I see a stupid rant... There are also a fair number of other users that just go like "oh, this again? *grabs popcorn*" or something...

    In a way, I guess the community already understood those rants shouldn't be taken seriously.

    Minimally moderated?

    I say we moderate it the hardest. Delete any post that isn't a rant
