I think a retro tech board (maybe /gr/?) would be a nice fit for the theme of this site.
14 posts and 1 image omitted.
i'm kinda liking this imageboard and these boards. i think that some retro tv/tech/movies(series and ...)/etc... would be good after all this imageboard based on retro stuff..so those are some important boards ig
>>395 You just reminded me that I wanted to make a horror movie thread on /br/ for at least a week now but never got around to it.
>>396 >make a horror movie thread yeah that also would be great but i think that would be better if you kinda make horror movies THREAD in movies board. i don't know if there is movie board here or nah . i'm new here so redpill me on this topic anon
>>397 As mentioned we have /br/ assorted retro, there are already two movie and music threads up so I think that's a good place for that.
>>398 >movie and music threads yeah that's good glad i reminded you

Event suggestion thread ranchan Admin 04/18/2022 (Mon) 01:11:32 No. 381 [Reply]
This is a thread where you can suggest future event ideas, whether that be content for watch parties (/ar/, /a2k/ or other), game night ideas, or any other board event ideas you have. Also, if you want to host an event yourself related to the site, I can add it to the calendar if you post what it's about here.

Hello Wapchan, I come to you in my time of need. I'm old enough to have seen all the franchises I've loved get killed and corrupted, but i dont want to give this one up atleast not without resistence. Please help an old man out.
>>346 You could try to get them canceld on Twitter if you rail up the the right kind of people
>>346 I probably wouldn't be useful when it comes to hacking, but i'm all ears for any social engineering ideas you got.

Why is the wapchan channel on a network that shares your IP?

>>199 >>200 >>201 I will do this tonight and fix a few other lingering issues (like the daylight savings for waptv) There will be an update posted when I'm done.

>>202 Alright, thanks for doing this. I joined and it's empty, actually joining #ar even made me op which I'm sure you weren't intending. I'm sure you can fix that easily, though. I'll keep idling in case other people show up. Now SSL support (would be nice)!
>>210 Will get on that!

When we were setting our IRC, figuring out how to properly set InspIRCd was a huge pain, so we decided going with UnrealIRCd which was apparently a lot easier to properly set up, so you may want to check that one Also you will probably want to set Anope on whatever IRC daemon you are using - which allows registering channels/hosts/usernames/simple moderation tools etc
>>216 At this point it'll feel weirder me not being opped than being so lol

I suggest you make a board for mechafags. That is all.
>>189 this isn't a bad idea on paper, but i just don't think there's enough actual interest for this to be warranted at the moment. maybe you can prove me wrong, just my two cents
This site is already pretty slow, there's no reason not to discuss older mecha anime on /ar/ right now. Making a new board would probably just lead to two even deader boards.
>>189 /m/ doesn't have an issue with older mecha not getting discussed the same way /a/ does with older anime not getting discussed, So there would be no one to populate it with.

Odd request (and I don't know if it'd be possible) but I always find that wapchat is empty, I've idled around there for a few days and only ever saw two people join (both of which left right after). Would there be a way to add how many people are currently in wapchat to the board somehow? I imagine people may want to join if there's someone there to talk to, or even idle about in for discussion others might bring. Not sure how many users would want to stick around that place and prefer the slow nature of the boards, but I think if people are bored and want to talk to some other fellow users it might be a good idea to show how many are in chat.
>>186 Been busy recently so I haven't been on as much, the boards definitely been a bit slower recently. I'll work on your suggestion soon, it shouldn't be that hard to implement. This week I'll do the fireside chat (probably on tuesday) so we can hash out more ideas for the site as a whole.
>>187 Good to hear, never really used IRC before so I had no idea if it was possible, I just remember a forum I used to frequent years ago did that and you could even see the usernames of the people in the chat at the time. >the boards definitely been a bit slower recently I've felt that as well, I imagine the few users sticking around are probably waiting for more discussion than starting threads themselves, but just a guess. Will need to advertise more in certain places to certain people so they might want to jump here instead.

Greetings from 22Chan.org anon 02/05/2022 (Sat) 16:37:41 No. 173 [Reply]
Hello wapchan! It's nice to see a fellow like-minded imageboard out there and we thought it'd be nice to say hi and introduce ourselves. The goal of 22 is to steer clear from the things that made 4chan cancerous which is why the userbase is relaxed and the site is comfy. We're not a nostalga board but it is an aspect of the community. We hope you guys have a nice day and that everything works out with your board.
6 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>177 As long as they dont mind us having a greetings thread on their board I don't see a problem, I just don't want our site associating with sites that cultivate /pol/-like content (which this one clearly dosent)
>>177 If you feel unfomfortable with us somehow feel free to talk it out on our /sg/ or atleast try to elaborate on how you reached these conclusions. all we wanted to do is be friendly and say hi and we're open to criticism >>178 Not exactly sure what he means by this, the admins been pretty quiet
>>179 We dont raid altchans sir and other altchan admins actually slap their name on their site such as maki or kuz and so on. We also don't have a dev and never had one in the first place.
>>174 >>180 God I love how decisively apolitical wapchan is.
>>177 >>179 my man the guy literally just came and said hi, stop trying to start drama

Could you please unban me, I wont spam id just like to make one thread dedicated to sweet Ran and in other threads I wont spam her. I didnt make the thread to be annoying, I just love her very much and she belongs on a retro anime site.
5 posts omitted.
>>48 allright, thanks
>>48 do you really thing this is a good idea? i dont trust him, like at all
>>50 as much as i find him annoying being a trigger happy despot around here won't do this place any good. if he spergs out again then ill deal with him appropriately.
It would probably be to geo-block all of Deutschland
>>43 Ran is pretty cute actually

Proposal for linking Wapchan with Heyuri! kaguya 02/02/2022 (Wed) 22:46:09 No. 135 [Reply]
Hello ranchan-san, I am a moderator at heyuri.net, it's a BBS with a Futaba style imageboard, a 2channel style textboard, an oekaki board, a western Ayashii World copy, and cool users At first glance it could seem like an interwebz nostalgia site, but it's more about having fun in the way we used to do in early 2000s, with some rulez to keep nu-4chan AIDS out. I think it's fitting perfectly with this site, and linking two would benefit both sides!
17 posts and 5 images omitted.
>>152 i'm just one anon, i cant and wont speak for the others, i just want to see this site be succesful because its really comfy what you did here so far and it would be a shame if it goes to ruin, but im glad my input means something.

>>136 I am happy you accepted! I made a links page and added Wapchan on Heyuri, you can find it linked on static pages: https://www.heyuri.net/index.php?p=links UR turn nao, I see there already is a static "Links" page on Wapchan >>140 That's exactly how I think too, net friendships aren't meant to be Serious Business. It won't be anything else than fun! >>141 There is a Discord server, but it's only for post notifications - It's allowing a relatively small userbase to instantly get notified whenever someone makes a new post, and it's certainly not an "off-site chatroom" as one might think it is. >>150 >I don't know if any of these services actually support forced anonymity There are forced-anonymous IRCd softwares actually, but you would need to set the IRC server (and not just channel) to use them. Or you could create a channel on an existing IRC server of course, but I wouldn't really suggest it: that would attract trolls. If it's just "generating random nicks", there isn't anything preventing anyone from joining an ordinary IRC room with different nicknames each time.

>>154 i added it to the links page as well as put a link to that page in the footer. looking forward to being net friends!
I'm iffy on a merger, but having a sister site sounds like a lot of fun. I think we could have something real good building here.
>>156 there's no plans for a merger and likely never will be, don't worry. just two sites with somewhat similar cultures having a good time
