2022 U.S.A.G.I. Gamejam — by seisatsu at 03/23/22 (Wed) 10:38:39
Hello everyone! Our very first, 2022 U.S.A.G.I. Gamejam has ended with several people actually submitting projects, which is awesome and more than a lot of us expected.

I had really hoped to play all of these and write up some short blurbs to include with this newspost, but a messy work-life balance combined with problems getting some of these to run on my Linux machine have made that difficult, and I feel making a shorter newspost now is better than making a longer one in a few weeks.

A gigantic thank you to everyone who participated! Here are our four submissions, all made available on Itch.IO. They all look pretty awesome so please give them a try, and let the devs know what you think in their /usagi/ threads!

Very Late Birthday Newspost — by seisatsu at 03/11/21 (Thu) 07:36:57
Hello. It's good to see that some of you are still here. Apologies for the very late birthday post; losing my laptop may be a decent excuse but honestly I am just a little bit worn out. My birthday is about a month before Uboachan's, and I turned 30 this time! And I have a full time job now. So, I guess feeling tired is unsurprising. But, on to the real news.

So, what happened since my last newspost? Well, Uboacraft has been back online for a while, so that's neat. The Dream World MUD got some major updates last year, so check that out if you haven't already. And, there were also a few new scanlations, though activity has tapered off for the last while. Discord remains our most active community by far, though mostly entirely separate from the board community. And, I am still the only active board staff member. Thankfully there hasn't been much trouble lately.

I guess the biggest thing has been the rules update. I'm glad that went over as smoothly as it did, and I regret not doing it years ago. My sticky in /sugg/ has more to say about that. Still, I feel like it's too little too late, and we lost a lot of good members early on that aren't going to come back. But, there's only so much you can gain by looking backwards, so I try not to think about it too much, and to just be happy with the choices I've made more recently.

Also! Sushichan is doing really well. We took in another imageboard that shut down last year, and there's actually a lot of activity. So, that's worth checking out if you like comfy spaces.

Until next year, friends!

We're not dead yet. (Scanlations Update) — by Chesir at 01/25/19 (Fri) 01:42:54
Hello, good news at last. We've got a little present for ubuu in this anniversary. Seisatsu bought 10 doujin books and delivered them to me a few days ago, and lo! They're really wonderful. I'll be setting my scanner to work, once I fix an old computer I have with the needed parallel port to connect it. It makes me a little sad to think that they will suffer a bit once I put them in the scanner, but some sacrifices must be done for the greater cause.

I always amazed me how these have escaped the eye of the fandom for so long, so I'm very happy that we are finally able bring them to you. However, bear in mind that it will take me a while to scan, then transcribe and translate all of these, so I hope you guys will be able to bear with me for a while (although I promise to give you guys some taste of it before it's finished). After I set up everything here, I will prepare something in discord (since, sadly, and as much as it pains me, IRC is dead) for the people interested in helping me, either with the translation, image editing, pasting of text, or proofreading. Stay tuned.

Ubuu has been up and running for 10 years, delivering content related to Yume Nikki since then. We host the translation, we have seen the birth of successful fangames in our boards, and now we deliver translated doujinshi to the fandom. Who can tell what will come next?

Discussion Thread and Teaser Photos
Ten More Years! — by seisatsu at 01/22/19 (Tue) 21:55:04
And just like that, it's been a decade. Somehow I'm not surprised that we're still around, I guess because keeping this place running for as long as possible has always been my intention. 10 years is a nice milestone though, so maybe I'll think of something fun to do with the site.

Late last year, I moved Uboachan to a new server after another website hosted on the same server became infected with viruses. Scans and investigation showed that the infection didn't spread to any other sites, but I set up a new server to be safe. It's needed to happen for a while now anyway; there were software upgrades that couldn't be done in-place on the old OS. We are now running the latest version of Debian, and we've switched HTTP services from Lighttpd to Nginx. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten the Uboachan Archive running with Nginx yet, so that's still broken, but I'll get around to fixing it.

Did you think our co-op scanlation project with Patchy Illusion Team was dead? Think again! About a week ago I bought 10 raw Yume Nikki fan doujins straight from Japan with the help of a generous donor, and shipped them to Patchy Illusion Team's lead scanlator Chesir, who should be receiving them some time in the next few weeks. After that he should have enough material to keep the team busy for a while, while all of the doujins are translated and released. Chesir may need some additional help with this batch, and if so he'll post in the Scanlations Project sticky on /yn/. Expect some teaser photos as well once the doujins arrive from overseas.

The Lost Cities Minecraft Server is also back from the dead, sort of. The map became corrupted, and when recent backups were restored those eventually became corrupted too, leading to the server staying offline for a few months. Eventually we decided to reset the map completely, and hope that the same issue doesn't happen again. However, we're still running the same old plugins, so it should be a similar experience. If anyone's interested, I may be able to package up a working backup of the old map for download, but it's a bit out of date.

Development for the Dream World MUD is on hiatus, but hopefully only for a few months. The server is still up and running, and more features are planned for the future.

Writer continues to be in charge of the moderation staff, while I keep the server and website up and running.

A toast to ten more years!
