Potential RollbackHi all.
Hello WapChan from SheepishPatioHey from the head janny of SheepishPatioIve been lurking(mostly) this site for a few months now and wanted to extend a hand of friendship. Maybe this is a bit embarrassing, but i've got a lot of admiration for the development of this site and how its been administered. I love whats been done with the place, so I wanted to be friendly.SheepishPatio is a web forum for hobbies, our users like books, games and anime among other things. You guys have a bit more of a retro focus than us but I think there'd be some good crossover. The site is still developing with new features (some I'd really like to sort out) and my lot are a good bunch. It is a user based forum though so not anonymous, though you can use any email (real or otherwise). Just means that you wont be able to reset passwords without contacting meIf that sounds good to you, feel free to check us out. Otherwise i'll still see you here
čudan textboard>If you host a site alligned with our kind of content and want to be added to our friendly site list, please make a post on /meta/ about your site.Good morning, kind Sirs!https://textboard.lol – modern textboard for hackers and weirdosIf you wanna be frens, backlink is guaranteed here: https://textboard.lol/about.phpThank you and have a wonderful day!
Clarification on NSFW policyThis thread is to discuss the current NSFW policy, since that's part of what caused this whole recent debacle. The current policy is that NSFW content should be censored, but I may have given off the impression that this is a prude website or something with that. Really I just dont want any of the boards to look like /h/ or /e/, but to have /a/ style rules on that. For example, this gif is probably about as explicit as you can go without censoring. Hopefully this makes things more clear.
Discussion on policy for /qa/ type memesThis thread is to discuss what the rules should be for /qa/ type memes (frogs, wojaks, soyjaks). Currently there has been no hard rules against these, since very few members of the existing userbase post them, but ever since the recent raid, we've been getting them more often, and it seems many users don't like them, so i'd like to make site policy firm on these kinds of memes. Here are some ideas.>Ban all frogs/jaks sitewide>Ban only soyjaks>Ban soyjaks and restrict other memes to a containement boardI wouldn't even be opposed to a meme/old net culture board, but I would much prefer it to be classic 90s/2000s style memes, not the strange and abstract modern kind that has nothing to do with this site.
Minecraft server threadI am pleased to announce that the Wapchan Minecraft server is now open! This is running on beta 1.7.3 (peak minecraft), and for the most part there aren't many rules, but try to keep the place looking decent and don't just come on and smash stuff. We're trying to keep things comfy, after all. Recommended launcher is https://github.com/PlaceholderMC/PlaceholderMC , since it does not require a microsoft account (this server is cracked). Additional info can be found at https://rentry.org/hfpIP is play.wapchan.org
STAFF RECRUITING DRIVE!Hello anons of wapchan! We have been under attack from automated spam for a while now, and I'm not always around to clean it up myself. If you want to keep this board comfy, tidy and captcha-free, consider applying for staff and help make wapchan the best retro board there is!https://www.wapchan.org/.static/pages/staffapply.html
Fall UpdateNow that September has rolled around, I figure it's about time we'd have another update. Here's whats on the table:>New board approvalWe're planning on adding a few more boards for certain topics>/cor/ - retro western animation and comics>/tech/ - technology and associated gadgetry>/vr/ - old games, but better than 4/vr/As always I'll run a poll just to see if people generally like these ideas, if so I'll probably add them over the weekendhttps://cgi.heyuri.net/vote/vote.php?p=216>Game server restructuringI'm going to overhaul the game servers. Currently planning to remove most of the extra sourcemod servers besides one of each game, just because they've been empty for months. In their place I'll be adding a TF2 server that runs many of the same sourcemod plugins and (finally) a minecraft server, notably on beta 1.7.3 (peak minecraft IMO). We may add another game if there's sufficient interest. This will all be setup sometime this month when I have time.>Community expansionThis isn't a new topic but since we had some discussion on it recently I though I'd bring it up again. While I do run a bit of a personal social media presence now for youtube and twitter, those of course aren't directly related to wapchan (topics are sorta related), so I was wondering how the community would feel about a social media presence for the site itself. Maybe a project related to the site? >StreamsPlanning on doing a stream sometime soon ish. I know I haven't done one in ages so send some ideas over.That's all I've got for now. Keep it real wap.
Classic Server convoy map broken.The convoy map in the classic server is broken to the point where nobody can join the server and anyone who was already in the server is kicked out.I have no clue why this is but this needs to be fixed as it just locks people out of the server until it restarts. Either or fix it or remove it at least.
Wapchan Game ServersThis is a thread to discuss the wapchan game servers. These are currently for the source mods Open Fortress, Pre Fortress 2, and Team Fortress 2 Classic. >Server Listhttps://play.wapchan.org/sourcebans/>OF Live Map Ratingshttps://play.wapchan.org/web/mapratings.php>[Member] rank ingame and the ability to do !votehttps://play.wapchan.org/web/member.phpHappy fragging!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVuPCAYH71Y
Hosting an /a/ tournamentHello, would this site possibly be willing to host an /a/ tournament? We're discussing it here https://boards.4chan.org/a/thread/237700739 but have concerns the jannies will ruin it.
Greetings from https://www.mootxi.co!I come to formally introduce ourselves to the WapChan community as a response to our IRC discussion to your greeting and introduction on our site.We are an imageboard born of the honest fun that once dominated the Internet. We rejects the current ironic culture (cringe/based, etc..) of the Internet and instead aim for a more traditional, oldschool approach that we think the Internet is desperately in need of right now.Following our discussions, we will be adding a link to your site on our site and will gladly participate in your future events should we be invited. We are not many right now but hopefully we can both grow to a respectable size together as one in the near future.We look forward to collaborating with WapChan!With honest respect-Mootxico staff
Event suggestion threadThis is a thread where you can suggest future event ideas, whether that be content for watch parties (/ar/, /a2k/ or other), game night ideas, or any other board event ideas you have. Also, if you want to host an event yourself related to the site, I can add it to the calendar if you post what it's about here.
New boardsAs >>>/ar/ reaches nearly 1000 total posts, I've been thinking about the future of this site. wapchan has always been focused around retro content, and there's no real plans to change that. However, I have heard many who say that while they like the site's design and features (especially the rule against political discussion), that they're just not interested in the topics on the boards. Since people have been suggesting these for a while, I'm proposing that two new boards be potentially added.>/a2k/ - 2000s anime>/am/ - Modern animeThis is not to detract from /ar/, but rather to give anons more options with their discussion topics. The fact that anime/manga would be split across 3 boards is a deliberate choice, as I did not want any specific era to feel "second class". I put it up for a vote, if we can get say maybe 25 for each then I'll add them (as in if one gets those votes and the other dosent ill add only one). Just wanted to run it by the community first.https://cgi.heyuri.net/vote/vote.php?p=153
Spring Update + April EventsHello everyone!First off, I want to thank everyone who came to the second watch p/ar/ty, even if ended up being sort of a mess. Truth was I was super busy for a few weeks and planned on being free that Saturday for the stream, but had to leave after a while since I had other stuff to attend to. In the future there shouldn't be any more incidents like some of the videos having italian subs (didn't have time to check all of them). At the end of the day though it was pretty good, and I'd like to give special thanks to our good friends from heyuri for promoting the event on their site and being such good sports about it all. We'll be collaborating with them more in the future for sure.Now for the events planned for April (I have been taking it easy the past few days since i'm done flying around all over the place for the year, so hope the radio silence wasn't too bad)>Documentary watch p/ar/ty This will be on 4/2 and feature the videos from >>>/ar/877 (plus any other suggestions, always found this stuff real interesting)>Retro game nightThis will be on 4/16, where i'll startup a old FPS server (probably quake or ut99) and frag the night away.>Game Adaptation watch p/ar/tyThis will be on 4/30 and feature the suggestions from >>>/ar/891 (plus any other suggestions)May will probably feature an event similar in concept to the 4chan cup, still working out the details on that oneNow for some other events running through spring:>Mascot contestI'll put up a post about this in the next few days, but i'll be starting up a contest to design mascots, both for the site as a whole and each board. While we've used a few anime girls to represent this place, I feel it's important that this site has its own identity, and mascots are a big part of that (especially since our friends at heyuri have a nice one). This will probably run through the months of April and May, with the winners being decided by June 1st.>Fireside chatsI was going to do one beforehand, but I'd like to do these pretty frequently to stay in touch with all you wapnons, so on these days I'll be on the IRC (probably at the usual watch p/ar/ty times) - 3/26 (maybe, i might move this one to a different day)- 4/9- 4/23I can do them during the week if that works tooAnd some miscellaneous stuff>New WAP-FM songsI haven't added songs to WAP-FM in a while, mostly because I wanted to keep disk usage down. But since I'm probably going to migrate this to a faster server sooner than later, I'll be adding songs from the suggestions thread on the weekend probably.>wapTV I don't monitor wapTV much, but from all accounts it's working well. I might pop in once in a while. There's still a lot of episodes to go with these shows, so I hope you're all enjoying them.>RecruitmentThis is something I want to try and work on, spreading awareness of this site. We've had ideas here and there but maybe we can work on something more coordinated during the spring.>/ar/ collab videoThis is something i'd enjoy working on, it can be in the vein of /a/ sings with an /ar/ twist or something more elaborate (one idea that comes to mind was the ill fated UY bong dub a few planned on /lum/ a while back)That's what i've been cooking up, any ideas that you all have would be appreciated.>why is the image sakuraI was in DC recently where the national cherry blossom festival was about to kick off, so I thought it was appropriate. If you have the time, try to find some sakura trees in your area. They're really nice and a great symbol of springtime.
Greetings from 22Chan.orgHello wapchan! It's nice to see a fellow like-minded imageboard out there and we thought it'd be nice to say hi and introduce ourselves.The goal of 22 is to steer clear from the things that made 4chan cancerous which is why the userbase is relaxed and the site is comfy. We're not a nostalga board but it is an aspect of the community. We hope you guys have a nice day and that everything works out with your board.
Proposal for linking Wapchan with Heyuri!Hello ranchan-san,I am a moderator at heyuri.net, it's a BBS with a Futaba style imageboard, a 2channel style textboard, an oekaki board, a western Ayashii World copy, and cool usersAt first glance it could seem like an interwebz nostalgia site, but it's more about having fun in the way we used to do in early 2000s, with some rulez to keep nu-4chan AIDS out.I think it's fitting perfectly with this site, and linking two would benefit both sides!
One month of wapchan!This site has been up for a month now, and despite some technical issues along the way, things for the most part have been pretty smooth on here. Some statistics>60.23 gigabytes of total bandwidth used>~423 unique IPs (only counted the most recent logs>628 posts>376 media files>493.49 MB of total media stored>18 peak listener count on WAP-FMSome additional thoughts>I'll be adding another board very soon, /br/ for topics not covered by /ar/ but that don't belong in /meta/ like old movies and tech. If specific topics get enough traction on there they may be spun off into separate boards.>I do want to get some sort of chat service working, probably matrix or xmpp based since discord is presumably an unpopular option.>If you've ever seen the site go down with a 502 error, that's me working on the backend in real time. I'm gonna setup a testing mirror of this site so that won't happen in the future>Still looking into the weekly episodic stream ideaAlmost forgot this>I'll probably be looking for a few jannies to help clean up around here as the traffic increases. More info on that to comeI'd like to thank everyone who's contributed to making this place feel like a home for retro anime and manga fans in just the first month. We got valentine's day coming up, so make sure you and your retro waifus/husbandos are ready!
Technical issues threadI know multiple wapnons have been having issues with replying and other aspects of the site. I mainly use arch and firefox, so if you could say>what the problem is>operating system>browser>extensions that you may think contributethen I could test accordingly and hopefully fix these issues.If you can't reply at all then send a message to email@example.com with your issues.
