How in the loving hell do I access the BBS? I've found a browser applet for it but I don't know what port to use. 23 doesn't work. what do?
Just write `telnet bbs.wapchan.org` in your terminal emulator.
>>434 The hell's a "full real name" anonfren?
>>433 The telnet link doesn't work sometimes and the browser version is actually broken since I never got the certificate to work over https, so manually executing the telnet command seems to work best >>435 Those are just the default new user values in Syncronet. I always figured people would put in dummy data, but I went in and disabled all of them besides the initial username/alias http://wiki.synchro.net/faq:misc#new_user_questions

>>436 ty fren, wapchan seems max comfy as I'm a big fan of retro mecha (and mecha in general) Too bad for the user, I'd actually like to make a permanent account on the BBS. Learn to post like it was the 90s all over again,

I wish things were a little less slow around here...
Talk about the site in other places to draw more people in
>>417 It'll be like that for a while I guess, even if this altchan does get a lot more users I do wonder if there will be a limit to what we can discuss if we keep it to a certain time period. Not saying we should change the dates by any means, but I do wonder if we'll basically see the exact same kind of conversations in around 2-3 years over the same shows? Enjoy wapchan while it's slow and positive anyhow, I doubt I've seen that many arguments or negativity in general beyond a few posts. Never know when it'll start to look more like a Pre-2000's thread on /a/.
>>420 I think it would be good for the board to branch out into other topics over time. This place has already proven itself to be a much comfier alternative to a lot of other boards out there, so discussing stuff that isn't specifically retro or anime related would be fine for me. I'm just happy to be able to come to a cozy chunk of the web and have a good time.
>>420 You could encourage people to watch more shows. I figure people willing to branch out to altchans would be willing to try other shows they otherwise wouldn't have come across.

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

Maybe it's too early to ask but how do plan on recruiting members for out community?
14 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>351 I've thought about it (as well as adding /a2k/), but i've always worried it would take away from the focus of the site. However if its a genuinely popular idea around here I might end up adding it.
>>31 Hey, altchan veteran here. Just want to warn you to NOT join what's called the "webring". It's filled with egomaniacs who track user data and get up to all kinds of shady shit. smugloli's board is the worst, do NOT recruit these guys if you want your board to be civil.
>>400 don't worry, there's no plans for wapchan to join that particular group of sites (addressed it here >>140 ). we may form loose partnerships with other net communities (and may even form an actual webring down the line, as in just site's linking to eachother without some plugin) but will otherwise always be an independent site.

>>401 Good plan. I've got a site in the works myself with tons of otaku info I've accumulated with my friends and events we've run and are running over the years. It'll have an imageboard attached, so when I get that running I'll hit you up if things align as I imagine they should. I really like the community you've attracted, it doesn't have that cancerous altchan behavior (so far), so I look forward to how things turn out.

>>402 thank you, i wish you the best of luck with your site. things may be kind of slow around here but we're focused on quality, not quantity.

I think a retro tech board (maybe /gr/?) would be a nice fit for the theme of this site.
14 posts and 1 image omitted.
i'm kinda liking this imageboard and these boards. i think that some retro tv/tech/movies(series and ...)/etc... would be good after all this imageboard based on retro stuff..so those are some important boards ig
>>395 You just reminded me that I wanted to make a horror movie thread on /br/ for at least a week now but never got around to it.
>>396 >make a horror movie thread yeah that also would be great but i think that would be better if you kinda make horror movies THREAD in movies board. i don't know if there is movie board here or nah . i'm new here so redpill me on this topic anon
>>397 As mentioned we have /br/ assorted retro, there are already two movie and music threads up so I think that's a good place for that.
>>398 >movie and music threads yeah that's good glad i reminded you

Event suggestion thread ranchan Admin 04/18/2022 (Mon) 01:11:32 No. 381 [Reply]
This 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.

Hello Wapchan, I come to you in my time of need. I'm old enough to have seen all the franchises I've loved get killed and corrupted, but i dont want to give this one up atleast not without resistence. Please help an old man out.
>>346 You could try to get them canceld on Twitter if you rail up the the right kind of people
>>346 I probably wouldn't be useful when it comes to hacking, but i'm all ears for any social engineering ideas you got.

Why is the wapchan channel on a network that shares your IP?
5 posts omitted.
>>199 >>200 >>201 I will do this tonight and fix a few other lingering issues (like the daylight savings for waptv) There will be an update posted when I'm done.

>>202 Alright, thanks for doing this. I joined and it's empty, actually joining #ar even made me op which I'm sure you weren't intending. I'm sure you can fix that easily, though. I'll keep idling in case other people show up. Now SSL support (would be nice)!
>>210 Will get on that!

When we were setting our IRC, figuring out how to properly set InspIRCd was a huge pain, so we decided going with UnrealIRCd which was apparently a lot easier to properly set up, so you may want to check that one Also you will probably want to set Anope on whatever IRC daemon you are using - which allows registering channels/hosts/usernames/simple moderation tools etc
>>216 At this point it'll feel weirder me not being opped than being so lol

I suggest you make a board for mechafags. That is all.
>>189 this isn't a bad idea on paper, but i just don't think there's enough actual interest for this to be warranted at the moment. maybe you can prove me wrong, just my two cents
This site is already pretty slow, there's no reason not to discuss older mecha anime on /ar/ right now. Making a new board would probably just lead to two even deader boards.
>>189 /m/ doesn't have an issue with older mecha not getting discussed the same way /a/ does with older anime not getting discussed, So there would be no one to populate it with.
