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

>>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
I am redoing the banners to be animated webp files instead of webms. This might break the banners for a bit.

I hope you all had a good Halloween. Unfortunately I have been far busier than expected for a while now (and have to makeup some work and exams this week), so I haven't had a lot of time to do stuff around here, but as always if any of you have ideas to improve the site I'd appreciate them.

Minecraft server thread fig57 Admin 10/16/2022 (Sun) 22:07:03 No. 704 [Reply]
I 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/hfp IP is play.wapchan.org

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.

hello?? anyone gonna answer?
>>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.

>>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/

compatibility mode for browsing on older PCs anon 08/02/2022 (Tue) 17:12:38 No. 610 [Reply]
A mate of mine has a Win98 rig for older PC games and browsing sites like 4chan. It would be cool if there was a simplified layout option for Wapchan so it could run on older OSes for maximum immersion.

Funny, seeing this thread makes me wonder if it would be possible to browse Wapchan on a Dreamcast?
ranchan please code a web browser for my famicom and make wapchan work on it k thx bye ^_^
>>612 It's probably gonna take a while to get fully functional, but if what I have planned works it should be able to Here's the plan >Server side program that takes the JSON data from LynxChan and renders HTML4 pages with minimal Javascript accessable with plan http >Images will be heavily compressed
This is good. I like this.

Technical issues thread ranchan Admin 01/30/2022 (Sun) 20:32:47 No. 64 [Reply] [Last]
I 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 contribute then I could test accordingly and hopefully fix these issues. If you can't reply at all then send a message to [email protected] with your issues.

The font size in the quick reply window is a little small don't you think? Switched to tomorrow theme which makes the font bigger for the catalog at least, but the quick reply window is still a little too small. My eyes are retro too, so it's hard for me to handle.
>>563 Just modified the font sizes, hopefully it's easier for you.
>>574 You are the best, thank you!
