I redid the front page/top of board news to be pulled from threads, so all future site news will be posted here. Feel free to give feedback/responses , since only staff posts will be shown on the front page.

/meta/ is for discussion pertaining to wapchan itself. please do not use this as a "random" or otherwise off topic board. thank you!

radio broken!! anon 03/03/2023 (Fri) 04:51:53 No. 830 [Reply]
Please fix the stupid ssl cert on the radio (or ideally just remove it completely you don't need ssl on a radio stream)
>>830 Everything should be fixed now, I moved the radio back behind NGINX and ditched the seperate cert. This also means you don't need to include port 8000 when accessing it, since it's now on port 443. >you don't need ssl on a radio stream You really don't, but a lot of web browsers complain about http links now so I have it https to be safe.>>830

Hey ranchan, I can't report threads. When I try to solve the captcha it says a captcha is 6 letters long as error even though I input it right and in fact input 6 letters.
Hm one day later it works weird. I guess it's solved? Just as info im on Win10 and Chrome.
>>809 Occasionally it doesn't work, idk why really.

Not OP, but hijacking the thread to ask what is the difference between "global report" and "report" ?
>>814 "Report" means to report a post for breaking the rules of a particular board while "global report" means to report a site for breaking site wide rules. This feature of the engine is meant for sites where users create boards and moderate them seperately from the administration like 8chan. Just use global report around here (ill try and find a way to disable the other report button).
>>815 Not sure if this is the right place to ask but what does trash post mean? I was trying to figure out how to hide a comment, so first I clicked delete (which works just like 4chan's delete go figure), but then I tried out trash post and got a flooding warning (after that I figured out that you click the circular symbol to hide posts). Is "trash post" the old report button that you mentioned? Also do you get notified of flood warnings like the one I accidentally triggered?

How do you think we're gonna get more traffic around here?
81 posts and 29 images omitted.
I would like a technology board. A retro only tech board would probably be dead so I guess a general tech board would be better.
I think an RSS feed would be good. The telegram bot is behind a few days and the rest of the post notifs I don't use... RSS feeds or other post notifs are a god send for slower chans.
(1.12 MB 946x727 50 - epE3NyI.png)
>>816 There actually are RSS feeds for each board as well as the overboard (it's a feature of the engine I forgot about). I'll add links to this on the main site in a few days but you can access them at https://wapchan.org/[board name]/index.rss , or for all boards at once https://wapchan.org/overboard/index.rss The post notif bot is broken rn and I won't have access to fix it for a few more days.
>>817 Nice, thank you! I will do my best to post a little when I can. I always liked smaller chans but it was hard for me to keep track of activity so this RSS feed could make me come back a lot more.
>>808 Even if it is a slow board, it could potentially be used to discuss retro PCs, great software from the past that are still relevant, and even some retro desktop themes. But maybe it is just me here dreaming of making comfy win2k (virtual) system to run AutoCad 2000, Office XP, Corel Draw while listening to Winamp 2.x.

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

Hey ranchan, I'm willing to be a janny. At least to delete obvious spam and cp. I don't want to be a moderator, I would only like to delete obvious spam and illegal stuff.
>>810 That's fine, just send me a message with the same contents as the mod app (All the current mods don't do any event organizing, they're basically jannies)

Create /touhou/ perhaps /2hu/ or even /th/, right now
1 post and 1 image omitted.
Yes! We need /th/ very much!!
>>793 Doesn't /vr/ cover that topic now?
>>794 Well, it does. And it doesn't at the same time, because 2hu is not only games, but also music, manga, fanfiction and even anime... Not to mention that almost all touhou stuff is made in 2000s, while many boards here are about retro stuff.
>>795 Oh I see, was never a 2hu guy, only know it started with games and that there is a huge fanbase for some reason.
>>795 Been meaning to play more of the games myself, and we haven't had a new board in a while so I'll give it a shot. Should be up in a few hours.

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.

Damn kind is still dead... F

>>768 >kind.moe is back glad to hear it, but why was it kill last year?
>>785 Didn't the owner just give up working on it?

why is it called wapchan?
>>764 Definitely not because of that song. From the FAQ and History page ( https://wapchan.org/.static/pages/faq.html ) >The name "Wapchan" was inspired by the term "wapanese" that used to be common on the internet in the early 2000s that meant "white japanese", or someone obsessed with japanese culture, which eventually fell out of use and was replaced by "weaboo" due to a 4chan word filter. Since wapchan focuses on the older aspects of anime, it's a fitting name. Also, I didn't come up with it, as that honor goes to this anon ( https://desuarchive.org/a/thread/229564359/#229604844 ) I kind of always knew this comparison would be made now and again, but the name stuck out to me more than something like "oldchan" or "celchan"

>>765 plz fix the IRC cert
>>766 I closed down the old IRC server due to not having the time to properly maintain it, we moved back to Rizon irc://irc.rizon.net:+6697/wapchan?key

>>767 I see now, very well! FWIW it seemed the channel wasn't registered because someone was surprised at being OP, I hope they'll be willing to transfer it? Or maybe you opped them idk. Either way I'll idle around a bit. Also, I can give you a code to replace the CyTube chat with Rizon's IRC directly and not have to share two separate chats with a relay bot if you like. Up to you doe, of course.
>>772 >I can give you a code to replace the CyTube chat with Rizon's IRC directly and not have to share two separate chats with a relay bot if you like That would be appreciated!
