I checked the cite just to make sure that nothing grossly offensive or potentially illegal was in it, and there doesn't seem to be. Apart from being titled "HIRO WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING" it isn't that bad, it is routine 4chan stuff.--♦IanMacM♦(talk to me) 17:20, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
There is a problem here, because people are going to read the text of the article and ask "But why is the site antisemitic?" Templates, categories etc should explain material that is discussed within the article. 4chan is the home of the Happy Merchant, but it is hard to say this because Know Your Meme is not considered a reliable source. Anyway, templates should not make statements that cannot be supported by the text and citations in the article. Anitisemitism is in the alt-right template at the bottom of the page, and this has various links explaining the type of content on the site.--♦IanMacM♦(talk to me) 16:39, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
It isn't in dispute that there is a ton of antisemitic material on the site, but there is also material attacking blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, anyone the alt-right dislikes. The problem with this edit is that it gives excessive prominence to something that is not discussed and cited in the article.--♦IanMacM♦(talk to me) 16:53, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
My next question is obvious, I should think: Why isn't it discussed in the article? I don't buy the "well, they hate everyone equally, so they're not really 'antisemitic per se'" argument; that's cheap beef.--Jorm (talk) 17:00, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
@Jorm: It appears that you added the template to this article in order to justify this edit to the Antisemitism sidebar. I have partially reverted your edit, please discuss here if you think a link to 4chan should be in the template. Lmatt (talk) 17:01, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
There is a sourcing problem here. I couldn't find any article other than the one on Know Your Meme discussing the Happy Merchant and its link to 4chan. I also think that the reverted edit took up a large amount of space explaining something that is in the alt-right template.--♦IanMacM♦(talk to me) 17:10, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
according to RollingStone 4chan is important in incubating Neo-Nazis

add /mu/ to list of notable imageboards
Include connections in this to Neutral Milk Hotel, the /mu/core list, Anthony Fantano, Piero Scaruffi, and RateYourMusic 2601:186:4301:CDE0:C4F5:2365:4F7A:6F3 (talk) 00:10, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
Not done. It's not clear what you want to add. In any case, there is no main article for "/mu/" as there are for the other subsections here. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 03:10, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
http://boards.4channel.org/mu/ is the Music board and it may not be one of the more notable ones, this is subjective. Some people get annoyed when most of the focus is placed on /pol/ and /b/, but this is where most of the media coverage has occurred.--♦IanMacM♦(talk to me) 18:00, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
Apparently, 4chan found a syrian rebellion camp, called an airstrike on it. They also found an ISIS training site. Bit murky, but it certainly seems possible.

This occurred back in May 2016 and it is sourced (not ideally) here and here. As you say, it's a bit murky.---♦IanMacM♦(talk to me) 17:38, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
