There's no need to be embarrassed - it's not easy running any kind of site that allows user uploads, especially if it's anonymous. I've contemplated myself if the future of wapchan is a forum versus an imageboard, since the site's pace and culture lends itself to long, detailed posts, and the userbase is quite small, but its hard to make decisions like that when you want to keep the existing userbase in mind. I have visited your website before when you followed the wapchan twitter, and you've done a nice job in keeping things nice. The fedi instance is a bit more unhinged, but seems alright enough. Last fall I contemplated making a pleroma instance for wapchan, but ultimately didn't go through with it. Seems like the fediverse is very divided these days, especially with all those blocklists passed around.
Anyways, I'll add you to the friends list. Keep up the good work!
