Hello, wapchan, 2kind.moe here! Nobody had any issues with becoming friends. Our site is well... kind! We like to take it easy over there. We welcome most topics, so long as discussion remains civil. While we don't have any rules about it, our users don't care for the modern imageboard user. /kind/ might not be as big as it once was, but you won't find such a dedicated userbase anywhere else! Hopefully this introduction is satisfactory. I'll add you to our friends page.

>>414 thanks for receiving us warmly, friend. i personally just really liked the tone of your board, we could use more of those kinds of places on the modern net. i've added you to our friendly sites page as well, hope to see you all around in the future!

It seems our good friends at 2kind are having some downtime due to being pulled by their hosts. I hope they get their site up and running again soon enough, it's a very nice board. https://anon.cafe/shelter/res/3340.html

>>693 We are working on it. Unfortunately there is a lot for me to learn, but I'm making good progress and I have invaluable assistance. I'll be sure to let everyone know when we are back up.

Why are wapchan anons so shy? When some anon makes a thread I often see a lot of replies shortly after, but people hesitate to make their own thread for some reason. Go ahead and make threads about stuff you want to discuss and if there is no board for that talk to ranchan my friends.

>>659 You know, I'm starting to wonder if anon's just don't want to read posts with paragraphs and don't want to make threads as that requires posting a paragraph. Maybe we just don't like reading and posting in general. Or perhaps we don't have enough frequent users yet.... Either way, wapchan requires some form of actually paying attention to what you post and read so I imagine if things don't interest the average anon, they won't post or respond and we get no discussion from it.
>>688 >anon's just don't want to read posts with paragraphs and don't want to make threads as that requires posting a paragraph That's definitely part of it. Since this place is slow and the topics are niche, most people seem to want to make more well informed and detailed posts as opposed to bait (which is a good thing) >perhaps we don't have enough frequent users yet Also part of it, though I think it's been better recently. Maybe we need a more coordinated campaign if we want serious growth. I think the main thing is that most of the users don't use the alternative/more instant forms of chat on here. The IRC is dead most of the time, and I can't really blame people for not using it since at the end of the day it's pretty niche for most these days, and other chat services would probably be unpopular with most of the users on here. I also still have to fix up the game servers which would be another potential form of communication. Additionally I'd like to run more community events like streams but I have been very busy with school and other activities so they won't be very frequent during the fall, at least ones run by me directly. Maybe others can step in and organize something?
I want to make a laserdisc or general older media thread but havent gotten around to it. Maybe someday.
>>689 If you were to compare to /a/ and most anime boards one of the main differences is that anime communities are unified around seasonal anime, whereby everyone is watching the same batch of shows all at the same time. With older stuff people are just picking out whatever shows interest them from all of anime history, so there is less chance that if you make a thread about some anime that there will even be anyone to talk to you about it. One thing that used to be done on /m/ was a group watch whereby everyone watched 1 episode of an anime per day or per week and there would be a thread for everyone who partook to discuss it.
The curse of all alt chans, where people spend more time bitching in meta threads than actually talking about things.

Fall Update fig57 Admin 09/08/2022 (Thu) 19:08:15 No. 670 [Reply]
Now that September has rolled around, I figure it's about time we'd have another update. Here's whats on the table: >New board approval We'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 weekend https://cgi.heyuri.net/vote/vote.php?p=216 >Game server restructuring I'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 expansion This 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? >Streams

where /vr/
>>683 Got on it. Ultimately decided to shelve /tech/ for now. Also, we really need new banners... so if you all got any ideas I'd really appreciate them. >>682 Cool stuff.

>>684 >literally zero votes on the poll >adds /cor/ anyway Not angry, just disappointed
>>685 To be fair the poll was meant to be checkbox style. Didn't see any posts against /cor/ so I felt like it had potential. But that's just me, if it's really unpopular I can remove it.
/cor/ was removed due to lack of interest I'll make working polls in the future. Also, moved this to meta because I put it in ar for some reason

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

I just found out about this website the other day from a CRT thread on /g/, It seems like the best way to increase poster count is by spreading word to other image boards that share interests with this one. Though I'm sure that has already bee mentioned in this thread.
>>442 This is probably just a me thing, but the text style and the all black backgrounds are kind of hard on my eyes. I find regular 4chan easier to look at and it's one of the reasons I only pop in once in a while. I have no idea if that would help overall though.
>>660 There are other themes. Click the box with Wapfriends, and you'll see your options.
>>660 >>661 I realized this wasn't very obvious, so I added "style" next to it.
>>661 >>663 That's more spoon feeding than I deserve. Thanks.

>>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 I'll be applying for janny here when I get back to OF and 2C, it's good to have mutual relations
>>543 >zzz touhou board you mean /japan/, right?
I've been thinking of hosting a Team Fortress Classic server for Mootxico and Wapchan, would anyone be interested in playing?

modern anime board anon 07/25/2022 (Mon) 13:27:50 No. 601 [Reply]
hey admin, ever thought about making a modern anime board? 4chan is breaking on a daily basis and we'd appreciate a place to talk about new stuff.
8 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>606 It is bullshit. How about "some old good, some new good too". What a dumb, stupid conflict. People who actually like anime shouldn't have these kinds of arguments in the first place.
>>616 sadly there's a diffrence between what people should and would do so we have to plan accordingly
>>609 An early 2010s board would be ok at least, right?
>>635 That would be just /a/

IRC certificate seems to be expired according to my bouncer. >(wapchan.org) [disconnected]: connection error: failed to register: failed to read message: x509: certificate has expired or is not yet valid: current time is after 2022-06-29T00:25:04Z

>>628 Huh, it's still down on my end. Still showing that "no certificate" icon in Firefox's inspect menu network tab. Going to the stream's page directly gives a generic error. I tried accessing the page over http as opposed to https just to see what would happen, but you guys seem to have set up a proper redirect, which is good.
>>629 For some reason, the daemon keeps crashing after a while, and the logs directory wasn't properly setup, so I've fixed that. I'll check on it tomorrow and try to figure what's been going on.
>>630 I don't know if you've gotten around to it yet today, but it's back up!
>>630 >>631 Just noticed this, but the last 5 songs list on wapchan itself isn't updating.
>>632 fixed
