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"

>>766 I closed down the old IRC server due to not having the time to properly maintain it, we moved back to Rizon irc://irc.rizon.net:+6697/wapchan?key

>>767 I see now, very well! FWIW it seemed the channel wasn't registered because someone was surprised at being OP, I hope they'll be willing to transfer it? Or maybe you opped them idk. Either way I'll idle around a bit. Also, I can give you a code to replace the CyTube chat with Rizon's IRC directly and not have to share two separate chats with a relay bot if you like. Up to you doe, of course.
