How do you think we're gonna get more traffic around here?

>>547 Wait, you mean to tell me you’ve a retro anime/manga fan and never heard of the works of joji manabe? Anyway his works were popular enough that dark horse comics distributed them a long time ago, karivan kid should’ve had an ova as well
>>550 >joji manabe He made ginga sengoku rai which aired in my country in arabic. anyway most of us are zoomers that bandwaggon on the old anime train to look cool and even the most obssessed anime fans nowadays barely know the name of anime creators

just gonna give some replies >>540 not surprised, mod quality has gone down there. all /m/ bros are welcome (though id like to have this board not be seen as just a "side site", that's understandably difficult but something im slowing working towards) >>544 the site itself can definitely handle a high amount of traffic, even with no cdn (a deliberate choice, seeing all the cloudflarr issues recently) the bigger issue of course is moderation on here, since im not always available to clean up spam and whatnot, but if we can get a few more reliable staff members who care enough to keep this place tidy, i think it'll work out fine. best method at least for me to change my dynamic ip is to set a fake mac address on my router >>545 i know /v/ is a mess (never really went there much myself except for the occasional /v/an) but i have no issues with hosting /v/ or /vr/ content though id might want to do something slightly different since im trying to keep the board ideas themselves mostly original. a lot of old otaku favorites seem to be pretty underrated these days becides a few that have stuck in the public consciousness to this day (lupin, UY, etc), which is kinda what /ar/ is all about, giving more attention to these kinds of works >>547 >not big channers that's something im trying to work on, making this place more normie friendly without it being at the expense of the imageboard format. if anyone has ideas on how that could be achieved that would be much appreciated, im working on personal projects that would link back to this site but at the end of the day (i've said this before) i want this place to feel like a mostly anonymous forum rather than the usual imageboard. >>550 ive heard of him but haven't read/seen any of his works. what would be a good starting point? >>551 i think it's tough for a lot of people these days to be subtle about what they like when it comes to anime imo, but that's something i have to work on myself since im pretty much in the other extreme where i know a lot about older anime but never really talk about it even to people i know who like anime because they just talk about seasonal stuff i haven't seen. probably should watch some newer stuff myself just to get a better perspective. maybe buy a few more /ar/core shirts even if pretty much no one would recognize them (have some bootleg lum shirts i got off redbubble a while back)

>>540 /m/ is fine in my opinion. It's really the only media board that isn't infested with shitposters and /pol/tards. However, I also agree with ranchan that mod quality has dropped for pretty much all of 4chan.

>>550 >Wait, you mean to tell me you’ve a retro anime/manga fan and never heard of the works of joji manabe? Personally, I'm bad with names and remember only a few that I really like, but I actually haven't heard of Manabe despite knowing a few of his works now that I look them up. It happens I guess. I can sometimes name a bunch work by the same creator but can't name the creator since I really don't remember them much. >>552 >(though id like to have this board not be seen as just a "side site", that's understandably difficult but something im slowing working towards) Once there's a lot more traffic, I imagine people would be willing to stay here to discuss things more and more. I always keep a tab open and refresh this site around 5-10 times a day if possible for any posts. To me, even 4chan has side boards that I'll browse and post on and then come back to in a day or two to check up on because the board is so slow. If we had around 20-30 posts a day or something, I imagine people would wanna use the site a lot more, just need to wait for more users. >that's something im trying to work on, making this place more normie friendly without it being at the expense of the imageboard format Will be difficult, but I imagine if people figure out the general feel of the board they'll either adapt or leave. I doubt people would wanna shit up a slow board like this and like minded people will want to come here, so so far it's been going great, just slow. More people will mean more shitposting and dumbass opinions, but I think we can live with it if the majority remain levelheaded. >i have to work on myself since im pretty much in the other extreme where i know a lot about older anime but never really talk about it even to people i know who like anime because they just talk about seasonal stuff i haven't seen. probably should watch some newer stuff myself just to get a better perspective. Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I watch a bunch of older show but barely watch currently airing stuff and if I do it's always somehow the things that aren't that popular and are things I read the synopsis of thought were funny or interesting. Although, this season all I've watched are Tomodatchi Game and soon Paripi Koumei which I believe are relatively popular. >keep spreading the word since that's how we're gonna make this place thrive. Already posted in a /vr/ thread to help out a bit, hopefully there might be some anon's who'll find it interesting and not report me for advertising ;_;

New boards ranchan Admin 04/14/2022 (Thu) 18:34:13 No. 353 [Reply]
As >>>/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 anime This 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

yo yo this font sucks
>>528 All the other themes contain the original font (Arial).
>>528 you know at first I agreed but I'm coming around to it
>>546 Funny, I was going to say that I prefer Arial, but honestly it has grown on me a bit when I'm typing posts. I've been using March as my theme for a while now, probably will never change it for Wapchan.

>>546 >>548 i just felt like for a retro site a bitmapped font only makes sense, i know i made a "terminal" style a while back but that had a pretty messy BIOS style font while this one seems pretty clean. might make a theme with the old charcoal font from apple as well.

>>541 "idk" - Anonymous
>>523 I made my otaku tf2 server 24/7 and it's quite popular, it's derived from bant and zzz's touhou board. It had 32 players almost the entire day today connect 74.91.116.171:27015 I'll be applying for janny here when I get back to OF and 2C, it's good to have mutual relations

Classic Server convoy map broken. anon 06/10/2022 (Fri) 22:27:26 No. 510 [Reply]
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.
>>510 Thanks for letting me know, it's been removed from the mapcycle.

Hello, I am from Tohno-Chan and just wanted to wish this chan well. I'm not a representative of Tohno-Chan, just a user. I had the intention of starting a website with similar goals to Wapchan, so it's encouraging to see that this is no longer needed. All the best.

>>462 Thanks for visiting. If you ever want to help out around here, feel free to apply to be a mod. Have a great day.
>>463 It would be irresponsible of me to apply to be a moderator without integrating with the site's culture properly. I recognize your story time threads from /a/, but I'm still looking over the site as a whole. I'm currently posting from a different device/browser and I wonder if you can see that. Or do you only recognize users via IP? I tried to post via a VPN but the IP had been logged as having been affiliated with spamming - I assume that this is organized by whatever host you're using. Thanks for the well wishes regarding my day. The same to you.
>>475 >It would be irresponsible of me to apply to be a moderator without integrating with the site's culture properly. That's pretty commendable. I can only see users via IP address, and a lot of VPNs have been banned here recently by me due to automated spam - it's also possible it could be due to my host blocking those addresses.

>>481 Thanks for the answers. I look forward to participating in the site further.
It's been a long time since I last visited Tohno. Nice to hear it's still up.

Spring Update + April Events ranchan Admin 03/24/2022 (Thu) 03:15:12 No. 203 [Reply] [Last]
Hello 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 night This 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/ty This 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 one Now for some other events running through spring: >Mascot contest I'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 chats I 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)

I don't have much interest in Chinese girl cartoons, but I'll chill around this site for a while, it's still good at the end of the day even if it's not something I'm super into. Also anything is a straight upgrade from Discord.
>>454 whoops, i don't pay much attention when i type sometimes... >>455 thanks for giving this a shot. the old anime focus was just launching point for this site, and ill add a more diverse set of boards soon enough. for now, you might enjoy the stuff in >>>/br/

>>453 Saw the server rebrand when I got on today. Good on you for retiring the discord, I'll be checking in here.
>>453 If wapchan ends up introducing me to a group of good tf2 servers it'll somehow be even more of a blessing than it already was.
>>453 Retiring any discords affiliated with in-groups seems like a good move to ensure that things are more open on a website like this. I enjoy TF2 but haven't played much since 2012. I would consider joining for a game some time.

Expansion of Lum 24/7 anon 04/17/2022 (Sun) 20:24:41 No. 379 [Reply]
dont get me wrong i love the 24/7 but how about a little expansion, how about adding IY either on top the UY stuff or as a seperate channel
>>379 I can make it more of a rumic shuffle kind of stream, though idk what people would want on that specifically
>>379 Update: I got a relay working between the lum 24/7 stream and IRC!
More rumiko is always nice, why not add her whole catalog?
What about Maison Ikkoku?
>>384 dont burn out chadmin

I think the /votemenu commands on your TF2C server are broken at the moment. My friend also cannot use them.
