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.

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"

>>629 For some reason, the daemon keeps crashing after a while, and the logs directory wasn't properly setup, so I've fixed that. I'll check on it tomorrow and try to figure what's been going on.

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.

>>414 thanks for receiving us warmly, friend. i personally just really liked the tone of your board, we could use more of those kinds of places on the modern net. i've added you to our friendly sites page as well, hope to see you all around in the future!

It seems our good friends at 2kind are having some downtime due to being pulled by their hosts. I hope they get their site up and running again soon enough, it's a very nice board. https://anon.cafe/shelter/res/3340.html

>>693 We are working on it. Unfortunately there is a lot for me to learn, but I'm making good progress and I have invaluable assistance. I'll be sure to let everyone know when we are back up.
Damn kind is still dead... F

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

>>728 Yeah, same happened to me, too. I think we have one sour janny on the lose in 4chan's /lum/.
>>729 I've been here for a couple of months and I too have noticed it's growth in just that short amount of time.

>>730 >>728 I've mentionned wapchan, mootxico and other alt-chans a LOT of times and I've never been banned
>>733 I try to mention it when it'd be worth mentioning, so if an anon on /a/ or /vr/ starts talking about wanting a place to talk about old stuff I drop it. I haven't been banned either but I've only mentioned it around 2-3 times.

I've been around since Jan and I've recently noticed there's been a lot more activity around here so that's a good thing. I personally try to post as much as I can about whatever I'm currently watching and reply to threads just to keep up discussion but I know it's not enough when others also need to give some input. Currently watching Macross for the first time so I'll probably make a thread somewhere around here about that in a few days and my opinions of it. Beyond that I doubt I'll be posting except to respond to other anon's. Wish I was playing more retro vidya so I could post on /vr/ but right now I've been preoccupied with modern vidya.

Text size is too small on the catalog on this board's "style" Deus#HPHrgW 11/15/2022 (Tue) 22:33:15 No. 734 [Reply]
subject line and no, I will never change the style.
>>734 I increased the size from 10pt to 13pt, which should look better.

Why are wapchan anons so shy? When some anon makes a thread I often see a lot of replies shortly after, but people hesitate to make their own thread for some reason. Go ahead and make threads about stuff you want to discuss and if there is no board for that talk to ranchan my friends.

I want to make a laserdisc or general older media thread but havent gotten around to it. Maybe someday.
>>689 If you were to compare to /a/ and most anime boards one of the main differences is that anime communities are unified around seasonal anime, whereby everyone is watching the same batch of shows all at the same time. With older stuff people are just picking out whatever shows interest them from all of anime history, so there is less chance that if you make a thread about some anime that there will even be anyone to talk to you about it. One thing that used to be done on /m/ was a group watch whereby everyone watched 1 episode of an anime per day or per week and there would be a thread for everyone who partook to discuss it.
The curse of all alt chans, where people spend more time bitching in meta threads than actually talking about things.
I have never made a thread on 4chan, ever before. So I have some questions Can I make two threads in the same board? Or does previous thread get deleted? Is it possible to make 2 threads in 2 seperate boards?

>>715 >Can I make two threads in the same board? Yes >does previous thread get deleted? Threads rarely get deleted unless they're obvious (usually automated) spam >Is it possible to make 2 threads in 2 seperate boards? Yes. More discussion is always appreciated around here. Don't be afraid to make threads!
