Not OP, but here's something crappy I made in around 30 seconds.
>>921 >>923 >>924 Nice stuff. Planning to redo the banner system soon to use webp instead of a mix of webms. pngs and jpegs, as well as make a dedicated banner page to show all the banners currently being used.

>>523 I made my otaku tf2 server 24/7 and it's quite popular, it's derived from bant and zzz's touhou board. It had 32 players almost the entire day today connect I'll be applying for janny here when I get back to OF and 2C, it's good to have mutual relations
>>543 >zzz touhou board you mean /japan/, right?
I've been thinking of hosting a Team Fortress Classic server for Mootxico and Wapchan, would anyone be interested in playing?

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.

>>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
>>609 An early 2010s board would be ok at least, right?
>>635 That would be just /a/

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.

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
This is good. I like this.

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 [email protected] 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.

Spring Update + April Events ranchan Admin 03/24/2022 (Thu) 03:15:12 No. 203 [Reply] [Last]
Hello everyone! First off, I want to thank everyone who came to the second watch p/ar/ty, even if ended up being sort of a mess. Truth was I was super busy for a few weeks and planned on being free that Saturday for the stream, but had to leave after a while since I had other stuff to attend to. In the future there shouldn't be any more incidents like some of the videos having italian subs (didn't have time to check all of them). At the end of the day though it was pretty good, and I'd like to give special thanks to our good friends from heyuri for promoting the event on their site and being such good sports about it all. We'll be collaborating with them more in the future for sure. Now for the events planned for April (I have been taking it easy the past few days since i'm done flying around all over the place for the year, so hope the radio silence wasn't too bad) >Documentary watch p/ar/ty This will be on 4/2 and feature the videos from >>>/ar/877 (plus any other suggestions, always found this stuff real interesting) >Retro game night This will be on 4/16, where i'll startup a old FPS server (probably quake or ut99) and frag the night away. >Game Adaptation watch p/ar/ty This will be on 4/30 and feature the suggestions from >>>/ar/891 (plus any other suggestions) May will probably feature an event similar in concept to the 4chan cup, still working out the details on that one Now for some other events running through spring: >Mascot contest I'll put up a post about this in the next few days, but i'll be starting up a contest to design mascots, both for the site as a whole and each board. While we've used a few anime girls to represent this place, I feel it's important that this site has its own identity, and mascots are a big part of that (especially since our friends at heyuri have a nice one). This will probably run through the months of April and May, with the winners being decided by June 1st. >Fireside chats I was going to do one beforehand, but I'd like to do these pretty frequently to stay in touch with all you wapnons, so on these days I'll be on the IRC (probably at the usual watch p/ar/ty times)

I don't have much interest in Chinese girl cartoons, but I'll chill around this site for a while, it's still good at the end of the day even if it's not something I'm super into. Also anything is a straight upgrade from Discord.
>>454 whoops, i don't pay much attention when i type sometimes... >>455 thanks for giving this a shot. the old anime focus was just launching point for this site, and ill add a more diverse set of boards soon enough. for now, you might enjoy the stuff in >>>/br/

>>453 Saw the server rebrand when I got on today. Good on you for retiring the discord, I'll be checking in here.
>>453 If wapchan ends up introducing me to a group of good tf2 servers it'll somehow be even more of a blessing than it already was.
>>453 Retiring any discords affiliated with in-groups seems like a good move to ensure that things are more open on a website like this. I enjoy TF2 but haven't played much since 2012. I would consider joining for a game some time.
