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

>>597 Speaking of the spambots, is there a way to add some kind of filter that could delete and ban anyone who tries to post with their name and subject matter being the same thing? It's the most common form of spambot post from what I see.

>>540 Hello this is /m/ anon again, I got banned AGAIN for another post I never made this time from /vg/ and I didn’t even go in that board. I don’t understand why this is a thing, I just want to have some discussion but that’s fine a 3 day break from that site is fair.
>>621 >I got banned AGAIN for another post I never made this time from /vg/ It's probably someone in your IP range. Used to happen to me all the time with a previous ISP I had, I'd get someone else's /vg/ shitposts and even an /a/ rangeban that weren't mine.
>>622 It’s fine, again it’s always alright to take breaks from the site here and there

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.
5 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>606 I agree, it’s just not worth the risk
>>605 I'm not OP and while I agree that wapchan should stay retro, I would absolutely leave 4chan at the drop of a hat if a competitor site appeared that was the exact same but with moderators who actually moderated.
>>601 As you can see, this is a very touchy subject. While I am not personally against making a modern anime board (there was a vote on it a few months ago), I can see why others are. I may hold another vote at some point regarding this. >>608 I am trying to keep a balance between the retro focus of the site and other potential non-retro boards. While this site wasn't designed to be a competitor/clone of 4chan, I wouldn't mind hosting similar (blue) boards.

>>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

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.
>>610 That should be possible, since all the backend info (LynxChan) is available via JSON, so I could probably make a simplified frontend sometime. It would be on a different subdomain (like reto.wapchan.org) since I tried to give this main site very good security features (modern SSL ciphers), which prevents it from loading at all on browsers older than 2010 or so.

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

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 admin@wapchan.org 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!

New boards ranchan Admin 04/14/2022 (Thu) 18:34:13 No. 353 [Reply]
As >>>/ar/ reaches nearly 1000 total posts, I've been thinking about the future of this site. wapchan has always been focused around retro content, and there's no real plans to change that. However, I have heard many who say that while they like the site's design and features (especially the rule against political discussion), that they're just not interested in the topics on the boards. Since people have been suggesting these for a while, I'm proposing that two new boards be potentially added. >/a2k/ - 2000s anime >/am/ - Modern anime This is not to detract from /ar/, but rather to give anons more options with their discussion topics. The fact that anime/manga would be split across 3 boards is a deliberate choice, as I did not want any specific era to feel "second class". I put it up for a vote, if we can get say maybe 25 for each then I'll add them (as in if one gets those votes and the other dosent ill add only one). Just wanted to run it by the community first. https://cgi.heyuri.net/vote/vote.php?p=153

>>567 We actually did have /clv/ for a very short period of time (like barely a day). I remember favouriting it to check on later but it went away. Just had one thread made by ranchan to discuss life. Would've posted in it if it didn't die so soon.
>>567 >>568 Made the boards on a whim but didn't think they had popular support so they weren't put on the front page. I would like to bring that + /tech/ back (since every board here currently is content focused, plus i genuinely like talking about tech stuff). Maybe even have /rlx/ - relax down the line, somewhat analogous to a comfy/offtopic board. Something else i've been thinking about - maybe a rebrand of /br/?
>>568 >>569 I'd definitely like to see /clv/ or some variant on this site, would definitely be a good way of making it feel like a community of people who like retro stuff and not just a "retro community", if that makes sense.

>>570 Good news - >>>/clv/ is here to stay! Also, I've finally finished my first (new) youtube video, the first part of a series on Urusei Yatsura. I wrote a much longer script originally but split it up, so this first part is fairly short. Hope you all like it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kzhF_Wg4Lc
>>571 Cool, I'll post on /clv/ soon and give a small update about my life I guess. As for that Youtube video, I'll share it around a few places for a bunch of people who might enjoy it.

Classic Server convoy map broken. anon 06/10/2022 (Fri) 22:27:26 No. 510 [Reply]
The convoy map in the classic server is broken to the point where nobody can join the server and anyone who was already in the server is kicked out. I have no clue why this is but this needs to be fixed as it just locks people out of the server until it restarts. Either or fix it or remove it at least.
>>510 Thanks for letting me know, it's been removed from the mapcycle.

Hello, I am from Tohno-Chan and just wanted to wish this chan well. I'm not a representative of Tohno-Chan, just a user. I had the intention of starting a website with similar goals to Wapchan, so it's encouraging to see that this is no longer needed. All the best.

>>462 Thanks for visiting. If you ever want to help out around here, feel free to apply to be a mod. Have a great day.
>>463 It would be irresponsible of me to apply to be a moderator without integrating with the site's culture properly. I recognize your story time threads from /a/, but I'm still looking over the site as a whole. I'm currently posting from a different device/browser and I wonder if you can see that. Or do you only recognize users via IP? I tried to post via a VPN but the IP had been logged as having been affiliated with spamming - I assume that this is organized by whatever host you're using. Thanks for the well wishes regarding my day. The same to you.
>>475 >It would be irresponsible of me to apply to be a moderator without integrating with the site's culture properly. That's pretty commendable. I can only see users via IP address, and a lot of VPNs have been banned here recently by me due to automated spam - it's also possible it could be due to my host blocking those addresses.

>>481 Thanks for the answers. I look forward to participating in the site further.
It's been a long time since I last visited Tohno. Nice to hear it's still up.
