How do you think we're gonna get more traffic around here?
We just gotta share it around, pre-2000s threads on /a/ seem to be the best place for it so far. I imagine current users just need to keep up posting in general, even for small random things like updates on what you're watching and reviews of things. People don't stay around if there's no activity but if there's something to talk about, people will wanna stay and chat.
Spreading around the word of Wapchan obviously, users don't spawn out of void. Such things like getting more traffic take time so both staff and users should be patient about it as well
I found this site through /kind/
>>448 I hope more do as well, you folks are the best.
I think I heard about you guys on /v/ or /vr/, I can't remember which. This place is really nice even though I don't watch a lot of anime. Whoever does the 24/7 stream is cool since that's how I've been catching up on UY.
By finding some more affiliates that aren't cancerous.
>>451 You have any suggestions?
>>442 /M/ user here, You’ll probably get some traffic from users that got temporary bans on the main site, take me for instance I just got an unfair 3 day ban for some greentext post on /v/ I never made, and I almost never browse that board unless it’s some game event. Mods be mods I guess

>>540 >attract people who get banned Based, can't wait for wapchan to be full of shitposters! Joking aside, if the mods do go out of control on 4chinpo this place could see a lot more traffic which is both a good and bad thing. I'll try and share it round more when given the chance just to let more people know about it, although I'm weary of /v/ nostalgia threads for posting since it's /v/ but might give it a shot if one comes around. >I just got an unfair 3 day ban for some greentext post on /v/ I never made, and I almost never browse that board unless it’s some game event. Mods be mods I guess Do you have a dynamic IP? I remember a few years ago I reset my router and tried to post and noticed I was somehow banned for posting CP back in 2018 and had a mini heart attack because I never did that shit. Then I remembered I had a dynamic IP and just reset the router again and was fine. First and only time that's happened to me, but still a good thing to remember.
>>544 No clue but it’s supposedly happened to other users before, never was banned for it before but was warned awhile ago before. Also I’d hold off on /v/ nostalgia, /vr/ is a thing and once they started allowing 2000 era games the quality sort of went down a bit but it’s still not nearly as bad. Also here’s some manabe stuff man I wish outlanders got another OVA, his stuff is underrated these days despite being prominent amongst American otaku during the early years

>>545 >Also I’d hold off on /v/ nostalgia Yeah, it was just something that came to mind that even I was weary about. Just shooting off ideas anyhow. >/vr/ is a thing and once they started allowing 2000 era games the quality sort of went down a bit but it’s still not nearly as bad Hah, don't have to tell me twice. I predicted that shit back when people were begging for it after Dreamcast got it (well, more around 2017/18 when the decline of 4chan was much more apparent) since all the reasoning for people wanting it on /vr/ was "I don't want to talk about it on /v/" which just made me think they were underb& (or close to) wanting to talk about their childhood on /vr/ instead of retro games, and thus bring the overall quality of the board down, which they did. I've sent this place to a few friends I know online who are into retro anime/vidya, but I doubt they've even looked at it much since they're not big channers so an altchan probably wouldn't be that interesting to them. >Also here’s some manabe stuff man Thanks. Never heard of him before but Outlanders sounds like a cool OVA, will give it a watch/read when I get the time. In return, have an OVA that is basically Terminator, really liked it when I watched it even if it's really slow for the first half.
>>547 Wait, you mean to tell me you’ve a retro anime/manga fan and never heard of the works of joji manabe? Anyway his works were popular enough that dark horse comics distributed them a long time ago, karivan kid should’ve had an ova as well
>>550 >joji manabe He made ginga sengoku rai which aired in my country in arabic. anyway most of us are zoomers that bandwaggon on the old anime train to look cool and even the most obssessed anime fans nowadays barely know the name of anime creators

just gonna give some replies >>540 not surprised, mod quality has gone down there. all /m/ bros are welcome (though id like to have this board not be seen as just a "side site", that's understandably difficult but something im slowing working towards) >>544 the site itself can definitely handle a high amount of traffic, even with no cdn (a deliberate choice, seeing all the cloudflarr issues recently) the bigger issue of course is moderation on here, since im not always available to clean up spam and whatnot, but if we can get a few more reliable staff members who care enough to keep this place tidy, i think it'll work out fine. best method at least for me to change my dynamic ip is to set a fake mac address on my router >>545 i know /v/ is a mess (never really went there much myself except for the occasional /v/an) but i have no issues with hosting /v/ or /vr/ content though id might want to do something slightly different since im trying to keep the board ideas themselves mostly original. a lot of old otaku favorites seem to be pretty underrated these days becides a few that have stuck in the public consciousness to this day (lupin, UY, etc), which is kinda what /ar/ is all about, giving more attention to these kinds of works >>547 >not big channers that's something im trying to work on, making this place more normie friendly without it being at the expense of the imageboard format. if anyone has ideas on how that could be achieved that would be much appreciated, im working on personal projects that would link back to this site but at the end of the day (i've said this before) i want this place to feel like a mostly anonymous forum rather than the usual imageboard. >>550 ive heard of him but haven't read/seen any of his works. what would be a good starting point? >>551 i think it's tough for a lot of people these days to be subtle about what they like when it comes to anime imo, but that's something i have to work on myself since im pretty much in the other extreme where i know a lot about older anime but never really talk about it even to people i know who like anime because they just talk about seasonal stuff i haven't seen. probably should watch some newer stuff myself just to get a better perspective. maybe buy a few more /ar/core shirts even if pretty much no one would recognize them (have some bootleg lum shirts i got off redbubble a while back) tldr: appreciate the feedback and suggestions. keep spreading the word since that's how we're gonna make this place thrive. happy summer!
>>540 /m/ is fine in my opinion. It's really the only media board that isn't infested with shitposters and /pol/tards. However, I also agree with ranchan that mod quality has dropped for pretty much all of 4chan.

>>550 >Wait, you mean to tell me you’ve a retro anime/manga fan and never heard of the works of joji manabe? Personally, I'm bad with names and remember only a few that I really like, but I actually haven't heard of Manabe despite knowing a few of his works now that I look them up. It happens I guess. I can sometimes name a bunch work by the same creator but can't name the creator since I really don't remember them much. >>552 >(though id like to have this board not be seen as just a "side site", that's understandably difficult but something im slowing working towards) Once there's a lot more traffic, I imagine people would be willing to stay here to discuss things more and more. I always keep a tab open and refresh this site around 5-10 times a day if possible for any posts. To me, even 4chan has side boards that I'll browse and post on and then come back to in a day or two to check up on because the board is so slow. If we had around 20-30 posts a day or something, I imagine people would wanna use the site a lot more, just need to wait for more users. >that's something im trying to work on, making this place more normie friendly without it being at the expense of the imageboard format Will be difficult, but I imagine if people figure out the general feel of the board they'll either adapt or leave. I doubt people would wanna shit up a slow board like this and like minded people will want to come here, so so far it's been going great, just slow. More people will mean more shitposting and dumbass opinions, but I think we can live with it if the majority remain levelheaded. >i have to work on myself since im pretty much in the other extreme where i know a lot about older anime but never really talk about it even to people i know who like anime because they just talk about seasonal stuff i haven't seen. probably should watch some newer stuff myself just to get a better perspective. Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I watch a bunch of older show but barely watch currently airing stuff and if I do it's always somehow the things that aren't that popular and are things I read the synopsis of thought were funny or interesting. Although, this season all I've watched are Tomodatchi Game and soon Paripi Koumei which I believe are relatively popular. >keep spreading the word since that's how we're gonna make this place thrive. Already posted in a /vr/ thread to help out a bit, hopefully there might be some anon's who'll find it interesting and not report me for advertising ;_;

>>551 He draws awesome Maetel/Emeraldas fanart these days
Hello everyone, I'm from 4 /vr/ and I have to say I love this site so far. >rule 3 Thank you so much for this, I'm so tired of this crap. All I want is having fun while talking about nerd / wap stuff with my fellow anons. As for advertising this site on 4chan, I suggest doing so only in a few selected threads and NOT to post on /v/ at all. Like others mentioned already, even /vr/ turned to shit, but /v/ is on a completely different lvl, shitposter wise, you don't want these guys here. Don't force things, give it some time. Help the site grow by making quality threads and posts.
>>557 Oh cool, glad my post on /vr/ was able to grab the attention of a poster or two. Hope you enjoy it, anon. I should really try and post in some threads every day just to keep activity going.
*cricket noises*

>>557 Shame to hear /vr/ is dogshit now. I love talking about games, but that just isn't a thing on 4chan anymore.
>>565 Introducing 6th gen was a mistake, my friend.
Simply by mentioning it more in other places. There are many people fed up with 4chan and other imageboards quality as of late, looking for a place exactly like this. We spread knowledge of its existence, we gain more users, simple.
I think we should try to post a bit more as well, going one day without activity of any kind (beyond a spambot) makes this place feel a little dull. If we had like 3-5 posts per day it could bring some more activity here, we usually get one from what I see. I try to post as well but also try to create longer posts that usually take some time and can only spare a few minutes a day right now.
>>587 You have to keep the right balance though. Less posts but good quality => can make the board seem dead. More posts but less quality => makes the board look like shit Like, I could comment on things I don't know much about, but that doesn't help anyone. I personally expected /clv/ to be more active though, considering the retro rule doesn't apply there and you can talk about whatever.
>>589 I guess, although I doubt a post or three a day would really hurt the quality of the board if they're around two sentences on the given subject. >I personally expected /clv/ to be more active though, considering the retro rule doesn't apply there and you can talk about whatever. Yeah, I was thinking of making a thread there just to ask what all the anon's are doing in their lives but never got around to it. Should probably do it today with random updates on my own life.
>>585 Pretty much this. >>589 I think it would be a long way to go before the board looks like shit. There's probably a lot of topics on here many people don't know much about, but even just giving their two cents may invite them to learn more about it. I should probably clarify the state of the boards more, since there isn't really a "retro rule", just general guidelines for 3 of the boards (for example modern content that is retro styled is allowed). I might eventually make more non retro boards for subjects like tech, music, games, and OC, since the current selection is somewhat limiting.
>>592 > I might eventually make more non retro boards for subjects like tech, music, games, and OC, since the current selection is somewhat limiting. I came from /vr/ so I would like a games board, but I'm not seeing enough demand to justify it as of now.

>mfw waiting for new posts
>>596 Things around here seem to get randomly fast and then slow. I've been working on making high quality retro related content for youtube partially to get more activity around here. One thing that's nice is that becides the spam bots, there's not many "low quality" posts 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
