Expansion of Lum 24/7 anon 04/17/2022 (Sun) 20:24:41 No. 379 [Reply]
dont get me wrong i love the 24/7 but how about a little expansion, how about adding IY either on top the UY stuff or as a seperate channel
>>379 I can make it more of a rumic shuffle kind of stream, though idk what people would want on that specifically
>>379 Update: I got a relay working between the lum 24/7 stream and IRC!
More rumiko is always nice, why not add her whole catalog?
What about Maison Ikkoku?
>>384 dont burn out chadmin

I think the /votemenu commands on your TF2C server are broken at the moment. My friend also cannot use them.

jannies anon 01/15/2022 (Sat) 13:56:30 No. 33 [Reply]
even when this site is still quite slow and small, you should think about hiring some jannies; case in point the most recent /ar/ thread
8 posts omitted.
>>430 Where do these people even come from?
Say I wanted to become a janny - what rate of compensation might I expect to receive? Are you able to give me an indication of what salary one might earn, before tax?

>>457 the usual, of course - approximately zero dollars and zero cents an hour, along with the exclusive right to eat hot pockets. we may double it in the future!

>>458 You mean to tell me that you expect a grown man to spend his time cleaning up posts on an anime forum for free? Gratis? Pro bono? You'll pay him nothing? What kind of man would work a job like that for free?

>>460 Someone who wants to keep this forum high quality. There isn't a ton of spam generally, it's more just that I'm not always around to clean it up myself. I don't make any money off this site at the moment

Hosting an /a/ tournament anon 05/13/2022 (Fri) 22:25:34 No. 438 [Reply]
Hello, would this site possibly be willing to host an /a/ tournament? We're discussing it here https://boards.4chan.org/a/thread/237700739 but have concerns the jannies will ruin it.
>>438 id be willing to host, sounds fun.
>>439 Please run the tournament, OP of the thread was outed as a frogposting faggot

How in the loving hell do I access the BBS? I've found a browser applet for it but I don't know what port to use. 23 doesn't work. what do?
Just write `telnet bbs.wapchan.org` in your terminal emulator.
>>434 The hell's a "full real name" anonfren?
>>433 The telnet link doesn't work sometimes and the browser version is actually broken since I never got the certificate to work over https, so manually executing the telnet command seems to work best >>435 Those are just the default new user values in Syncronet. I always figured people would put in dummy data, but I went in and disabled all of them besides the initial username/alias http://wiki.synchro.net/faq:misc#new_user_questions

>>436 ty fren, wapchan seems max comfy as I'm a big fan of retro mecha (and mecha in general) Too bad for the user, I'd actually like to make a permanent account on the BBS. Learn to post like it was the 90s all over again,

I wish things were a little less slow around here...
Talk about the site in other places to draw more people in
>>417 It'll be like that for a while I guess, even if this altchan does get a lot more users I do wonder if there will be a limit to what we can discuss if we keep it to a certain time period. Not saying we should change the dates by any means, but I do wonder if we'll basically see the exact same kind of conversations in around 2-3 years over the same shows? Enjoy wapchan while it's slow and positive anyhow, I doubt I've seen that many arguments or negativity in general beyond a few posts. Never know when it'll start to look more like a Pre-2000's thread on /a/.
>>420 I think it would be good for the board to branch out into other topics over time. This place has already proven itself to be a much comfier alternative to a lot of other boards out there, so discussing stuff that isn't specifically retro or anime related would be fine for me. I'm just happy to be able to come to a cozy chunk of the web and have a good time.
>>420 You could encourage people to watch more shows. I figure people willing to branch out to altchans would be willing to try other shows they otherwise wouldn't have come across.

Maybe it's too early to ask but how do plan on recruiting members for out community?
14 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>351 I've thought about it (as well as adding /a2k/), but i've always worried it would take away from the focus of the site. However if its a genuinely popular idea around here I might end up adding it.
>>31 Hey, altchan veteran here. Just want to warn you to NOT join what's called the "webring". It's filled with egomaniacs who track user data and get up to all kinds of shady shit. smugloli's board is the worst, do NOT recruit these guys if you want your board to be civil.
>>400 don't worry, there's no plans for wapchan to join that particular group of sites (addressed it here >>140 ). we may form loose partnerships with other net communities (and may even form an actual webring down the line, as in just site's linking to eachother without some plugin) but will otherwise always be an independent site.

>>401 Good plan. I've got a site in the works myself with tons of otaku info I've accumulated with my friends and events we've run and are running over the years. It'll have an imageboard attached, so when I get that running I'll hit you up if things align as I imagine they should. I really like the community you've attracted, it doesn't have that cancerous altchan behavior (so far), so I look forward to how things turn out.

>>402 thank you, i wish you the best of luck with your site. things may be kind of slow around here but we're focused on quality, not quantity.

>>949 >You guys should try it as well, it's fun. i never tried myself on gif/webm etc, whats a good startingpoint
>>959 I used adobe premiere for the editing, exported it as an mp4, and used webm4retards to convert it into a webm.
