I redid the front page/top of board news to be pulled from threads, so all future site news will be posted here. Feel free to give feedback/responses , since only staff posts will be shown on the front page.

radio broken!! anon 03/03/2023 (Fri) 04:51:53 No. 830 [Reply]
Please fix the stupid ssl cert on the radio (or ideally just remove it completely you don't need ssl on a radio stream)
>>830 Everything should be fixed now, I moved the radio back behind NGINX and ditched the seperate cert. This also means you don't need to include port 8000 when accessing it, since it's now on port 443. >you don't need ssl on a radio stream You really don't, but a lot of web browsers complain about http links now so I have it https to be safe.>>830

>>1065 That sucks. I should apply for a jannie position here since im here alot, just to be able to clean up something if i see it before it needs to be reported since that seems to be the trend to get sites in trouble.
>>1066 That's great if you want to do it, but in my experience doing that sort of thing for another site some years ago, running cleanup on this shit is just a band-aid, not a real solution (which needs to involve preventing them from posting in the first place somehow). Anecdotally my impressions from that experience have been that the ones responsible are 1) Not bots, but keyboard monkeys, so that anti-bot measures like captcha don't really help much. 2) Probably mostly originating from or running their servers in Russia and/or China i.e. places that tend not to be interested in responding to complaints filed from abroad. (I remember one outright posting after some deletions trying to argue that "child nude models" weren't illegal in Russia and so there should be nothing wrong with the deleted posts) 3) Leaning more into conspiracy territory but I'm not entirely convinced their purpose is actually just spreading CP and not some other scam or nefarious purpose, but I'll leave further speculation on that as an exercise to the admin. 4) The admin of the site in question refused to take my suggestion to implement an anti-TOR filter so I can't tell you if it would have helped or not. I still consider it a good idea, "bluh bluh muh legitimate uses" arguments notwithstanding, but nowadays I'm not sure that TOR is the IP-hider of choice anyways. Again, this is anecdotal speculation but if it helps you come up with anything, do with it what you will.

Hello WapChan from SheepishPatio Lumeinshin 08/14/2023 (Mon) 20:29:54 No. 1047 [Reply]
Hey from the head janny of SheepishPatio Ive been lurking(mostly) this site for a few months now and wanted to extend a hand of friendship. Maybe this is a bit embarrassing, but i've got a lot of admiration for the development of this site and how its been administered. I love whats been done with the place, so I wanted to be friendly. SheepishPatio is a web forum for hobbies, our users like books, games and anime among other things. You guys have a bit more of a retro focus than us but I think there'd be some good crossover. The site is still developing with new features (some I'd really like to sort out) and my lot are a good bunch. It is a user based forum though so not anonymous, though you can use any email (real or otherwise). Just means that you wont be able to reset passwords without contacting me If that sounds good to you, feel free to check us out. Otherwise i'll still see you here

Hello! 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!

Hello, wapchan, 2kind.moe here! Nobody had any issues with becoming friends. Our site is well... kind! We like to take it easy over there. We welcome most topics, so long as discussion remains civil. While we don't have any rules about it, our users don't care for the modern imageboard user. /kind/ might not be as big as it once was, but you won't find such a dedicated userbase anywhere else! Hopefully this introduction is satisfactory. I'll add you to our friends page.

>>1035 F I found this site through /kind/.
>>1036 The friends list was archived back in june. https://web.archive.org/web/20230610020302/https://kind.moe/friends.html >/comfy/ - A place to relax >/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives >/server/ - 188 >/cute/ - Cute/2D >wapchan - Retro anime and more >junkuchan - Nice little text board. >04.sbs - Imageboard for any images that look nice.
>>1040 We also recently added Hikari3 to the friends list.
>>1040 Thank you for everything figamin. This place is really nice looking, I love the general look of all the boards, specially /chill/, it's my favorite. Also, I noticed that threads on /chill/ get bumplocked after 2 replies (or was it you?). I don't want to bump a post so I use sage but it still won't let me. I'm also a refugee here so I was wondering if there's any way around that bumplock. Is there any /chill/ specific rule that I might've missed or any way to find how it works? I could've made a post about this here on /wap/ but I feel like it's a minor concern therefore it doesn't deserve one.
>>1043 /chill/ was originally intended to be a single thread board, seems like I forgot to take the bump limit off when I changed it to a general board. That should be fixed now.

friendly greetings from https://omegachan.cc/
>>1019 It's nice that you're the first site in ages that actually read the rules and posted here instead ofa different board, but we don't associate with sites hosting any form of /pol/.

I still think we should be friends with anon.cafe's /retro/ since /tech/ is dead.
>>964 I will reach out to them (or if you post there a lot you can as well)
>>966 I would not recommend having anything to do with that webring.
>>966 Not OP, but I go there regularly and can ask them if he doesn't.
