Odd request (and I don't know if it'd be possible) but I always find that wapchat is empty, I've idled around there for a few days and only ever saw two people join (both of which left right after). Would there be a way to add how many people are currently in wapchat to the board somehow? I imagine people may want to join if there's someone there to talk to, or even idle about in for discussion others might bring. Not sure how many users would want to stick around that place and prefer the slow nature of the boards, but I think if people are bored and want to talk to some other fellow users it might be a good idea to show how many are in chat.
>>186 Been busy recently so I haven't been on as much, the boards definitely been a bit slower recently. I'll work on your suggestion soon, it shouldn't be that hard to implement. This week I'll do the fireside chat (probably on tuesday) so we can hash out more ideas for the site as a whole.
>>187 Good to hear, never really used IRC before so I had no idea if it was possible, I just remember a forum I used to frequent years ago did that and you could even see the usernames of the people in the chat at the time. >the boards definitely been a bit slower recently I've felt that as well, I imagine the few users sticking around are probably waiting for more discussion than starting threads themselves, but just a guess. Will need to advertise more in certain places to certain people so they might want to jump here instead.

Greetings from 22Chan.org anon 02/05/2022 (Sat) 16:37:41 No. 173 [Reply]
Hello wapchan! It's nice to see a fellow like-minded imageboard out there and we thought it'd be nice to say hi and introduce ourselves. The goal of 22 is to steer clear from the things that made 4chan cancerous which is why the userbase is relaxed and the site is comfy. We're not a nostalga board but it is an aspect of the community. We hope you guys have a nice day and that everything works out with your board.
6 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>177 As long as they dont mind us having a greetings thread on their board I don't see a problem, I just don't want our site associating with sites that cultivate /pol/-like content (which this one clearly dosent)
>>177 If you feel unfomfortable with us somehow feel free to talk it out on our /sg/ or atleast try to elaborate on how you reached these conclusions. all we wanted to do is be friendly and say hi and we're open to criticism >>178 Not exactly sure what he means by this, the admins been pretty quiet
>>179 We dont raid altchans sir and other altchan admins actually slap their name on their site such as maki or kuz and so on. We also don't have a dev and never had one in the first place.
>>174 >>180 God I love how decisively apolitical wapchan is.
>>177 >>179 my man the guy literally just came and said hi, stop trying to start drama

Could you please unban me, I wont spam id just like to make one thread dedicated to sweet Ran and in other threads I wont spam her. I didnt make the thread to be annoying, I just love her very much and she belongs on a retro anime site.
5 posts omitted.
>>48 allright, thanks
>>48 do you really thing this is a good idea? i dont trust him, like at all
>>50 as much as i find him annoying being a trigger happy despot around here won't do this place any good. if he spergs out again then ill deal with him appropriately.
It would probably be to geo-block all of Deutschland
>>43 Ran is pretty cute actually

Proposal for linking Wapchan with Heyuri! kaguya 02/02/2022 (Wed) 22:46:09 No. 135 [Reply]
Hello ranchan-san, I am a moderator at heyuri.net, it's a BBS with a Futaba style imageboard, a 2channel style textboard, an oekaki board, a western Ayashii World copy, and cool users At first glance it could seem like an interwebz nostalgia site, but it's more about having fun in the way we used to do in early 2000s, with some rulez to keep nu-4chan AIDS out. I think it's fitting perfectly with this site, and linking two would benefit both sides!

>>152 i'm just one anon, i cant and wont speak for the others, i just want to see this site be succesful because its really comfy what you did here so far and it would be a shame if it goes to ruin, but im glad my input means something.

>>136 I am happy you accepted! I made a links page and added Wapchan on Heyuri, you can find it linked on static pages: https://www.heyuri.net/index.php?p=links UR turn nao, I see there already is a static "Links" page on Wapchan >>140 That's exactly how I think too, net friendships aren't meant to be Serious Business. It won't be anything else than fun! >>141 There is a Discord server, but it's only for post notifications - It's allowing a relatively small userbase to instantly get notified whenever someone makes a new post, and it's certainly not an "off-site chatroom" as one might think it is. >>150 >I don't know if any of these services actually support forced anonymity There are forced-anonymous IRCd softwares actually, but you would need to set the IRC server (and not just channel) to use them. Or you could create a channel on an existing IRC server of course, but I wouldn't really suggest it: that would attract trolls. If it's just "generating random nicks", there isn't anything preventing anyone from joining an ordinary IRC room with different nicknames each time.

>>154 i added it to the links page as well as put a link to that page in the footer. looking forward to being net friends!
I'm iffy on a merger, but having a sister site sounds like a lot of fun. I think we could have something real good building here.
>>156 there's no plans for a merger and likely never will be, don't worry. just two sites with somewhat similar cultures having a good time

One month of wapchan! ranchan Admin 02/01/2022 (Tue) 06:01:15 No. 124 [Reply]
This site has been up for a month now, and despite some technical issues along the way, things for the most part have been pretty smooth on here. Some statistics >60.23 gigabytes of total bandwidth used >~423 unique IPs (only counted the most recent logs >628 posts >376 media files >493.49 MB of total media stored >18 peak listener count on WAP-FM Some additional thoughts >I'll be adding another board very soon, /br/ for topics not covered by /ar/ but that don't belong in /meta/ like old movies and tech. If specific topics get enough traction on there they may be spun off into separate boards. >I do want to get some sort of chat service working, probably matrix or xmpp based since discord is presumably an unpopular option. >If you've ever seen the site go down with a 502 error, that's me working on the backend in real time. I'm gonna setup a testing mirror of this site so that won't happen in the future >Still looking into the weekly episodic stream idea Almost forgot this >I'll probably be looking for a few jannies to help clean up around here as the traffic increases. More info on that to come I'd like to thank everyone who's contributed to making this place feel like a home for retro anime and manga fans in just the first month. We got valentine's day coming up, so make sure you and your retro waifus/husbandos are ready!

>>124 thank you very much, you build something really great here. >/br/ for topics not covered by /ar/ nice
>>126 The idea for /br/ is to reduce the likelihood that new boards end up dead. If a retro /jp/ thread or threads gets enough traction on /br/ then it would be spun off into a whole board

Hell no, anything pol related will just sow the seeds of discord.

What does WAP stand for? anon 01/12/2022 (Wed) 13:53:10 No. 23 [Reply]
Is it wireless application protocol?
>>23 it actually doesn't stand for anything, it's just the first three letters of "wapanese"
>>24 i know i was just pocking a bit of fun at it. But good that you're here ranfren, would it be possible to have a history for the radio, so i dont have to alt-tab everytime i hear a song that i want to track down, 5 or so would be suffice, i reckon.
>>25 haha, no worries. shouldn't be that hard to implement, ill get on it
>>26 thank you very much, you do a great job.
>>26 you already added it, you work fast.

I like the site, but the refresh button doesn't seem to do anything at all.
>>19 That button had issues so it was removed for now. The other refresh button should update the page with any new posts.
