What would you do if people started posting in Japanese everywhere, all the time? I don't see any rule against that, so would you have a problem with it?

There is already some posting in Japanese, and that shows that we have some Japanese speaking users, which is fine in itself. However, I think that people who are comfortable writing in English should prefer to do so, because it lets more people join in the conversation.

If suddenly there were a disproportionate number of threads in Japanese, it would bump threads off of the front pages which the majority of our users can participate in, and replace them with threads that only a small minority of our users can participate in, and that could be a problem.

In Sushichan a while back, there was an incident where suddenly one or two people started making a large number of new threads in Russian over a short time span, and I deleted the threads because I perceived it as a troll rather than a genuine attempt at having conversation. It was an uncomfortable decision, and made me feel a little racist. Suddenly having a huge number of Japanese threads happen would be a strange situation for me and the site, I'm sure, and I don't know exactly what I would really do. Since the Japanese language is so intertwined with our fanbase for obvious reasons, I would probably allow it, unless it became obvious that people were doing it to be intentionally disruptive to our English speaking majority, like I suspect with the Sushichan incident.

Edit: Basically, some threads in other languages are fine, because I am sure we have Japanese (and other) users who are not comfortable with English. However, it could be a problem if a minority language greatly displaces the majority language in discussion here.

Yes, but the problem is that it's a living breathing human bean behind it. The problem would be solved easily a long time ago without need for intervention if that wasn't the case. Besides, yesterday the spammer changed up their links. And the spammer is known to also post political propaganda linking to threats and criminal activity, each time with a changed URL.

I'm not sure how hard it would be to implement, but would it be possible to block ip addresses that have been active for less than a month?

For example, billy fuckwad gets banned for spamming, so he switches ip addresses. However, billy can't post from this ip yet because it hasn't been active for long enough

It would be even more effective if the attempted posts by these ips were visable, meaning you can preemptively ban them if they're spamming and/or ban evading

 No.3571

>>3570
In order to "become an active user", you need to post. If you need a month to be able to post, and you can't post until that month passes, you are in a loop such that nobody who hasn't ever posted in uboachan won't be able to do so, forever. It nullifies the whole point since you can't get new users.

>It would be even more effective if the attempted posts by these ips were visable, meaning you can preemptively ban them if they're spamming and/or ban evading

IPs are visible to mods and they can ban per IP, nothing new there.

For best interest in the userbase's safety and privacy, could there be any way we adopt or at least *consider* IRC or XMPP? It's not unknown to people that Discord is running a data mining operation and doesn't really respect the user's privacy or freedoms. The problem with IRC was that users had no way of knowing what conversations ensued due to lack of backlog support. Implementing backlog support via a bot can solve this issue quite easily.

I'm not requesting or expecting anything, but I just thought it would be neat to plug the information out in the open for discussion.

 No.3548

* I forgot to mention, there's quite a few Discord bots that transfer messages from XMPP and IRC to soothe out the "split userbase" problem. In an ideal world, there would be no problem in giving us more options since the chat would be synced, eliminating the transitory phase. Sure, users would be vulnerable to message logging but that's the only extent/reach Discord would have; no extensive data mining, intrusive advertising & account linking or storing crucial details and logs in plaintext.

 No.3549

>>3547
Discord's not great though. The userbase there hardly has anything in common with ubuu's. Discussion there is facebook tier. I don't know if there would be enough interst in an irc chat and I doubt it would be more active than ubuu itself. I'd rather have people spend as much time as they could here.

We used to have an IRC, it died. Bringing it back is pointless.

As >>3549 says, The "official" discord isn't really ubuu related, other than the fact that it was originally run by mudnut and many ubuu users happened to be there, so it was eventually decided that if we were going to have a chat, that was as good as any. Or at least, that's what I know of the whole affair.
It'd be more useful if activity remained within the site, other than splitting even more.

Ubuu's original server was #uboachan@irchighway, if you or any of you is interested in… like, going there just to see nobody talk. If it is still up; apparently the servers had a crash not long ago and they had to change their website and are rebuilding things…

I don't understand how server costs work, but would the ability to embed videos seriously affect it? I don't mean actually uploading them, I mean posting the link, and having the video pop up in the post when you click it. Would this feature be appropriate for ubuu? I was just wondering because it seemed like it would be convient to me. I know this was mentioned, SEVEN years ago.

I have lost control.

I never wanted the boards to turn out this way. I just didn't know what to do. After the moderation team dissolved, I thought that if I just let discussion continue on its own, and let things operate mostly unfettered, and only stepped in to act on the most egregious situations, the site would stay mostly as it was. I never thought that the atmosphere would degrade to this extent. It's happened so slowly over the past two years, that I guess it was easy for me to rationalize that nothing had changed all that much.

But stepping back and looking at things now, I can't really say that Uboachan is still the dark-but-chill hangout that I had idealized. Threads about topics as innocuous as the weather are derailed into flame wars in short order, and attempts at moderation are met with harsh criticism, suggesting that in the absence of consistent vigilance, this sort of perpetually destructive atmosphere has become the expected norm. Conversation has turned sour. This is not an isolated incident, but something that is happening to threads all over the site. The low-key rage that rests in the background of most imageboards has risen to a fever-pitch, making calm and enjoyable discussion all but impossible. I don't think it's something I can fix just by banning a few users, and I don't think that the current rules would clearly justify doing so anyway.

I didn't want Uboachan to become a place where people actually enjoy being hateful. The hate and anger were supposed to be all tongue-in-cheek, just part of the joke, the colors of Uboachan's unique, dark sense of humor. I feel like a lot of our users don't get the joke anymore. We ended up attracting actual racists, evil wizards, inquisitors, the criminally insane, elder gods, and other unsavory characters, exactly the kinds of people I wanted us to avoid. This isn't just another imageboard, above all else it's a Yume Nikki fansite. At least, it was supposed to be.

Honestly, I haven't had the time and energy to put into this place lately. I'm not a NEET anymore. I've been going to college full-time, looking for a job, and trying to build my own future, all while dealing with an all-encompasing social depression that has made me more introverted than ever. I don't talk to people as much anymore, and often when I try to browse Uboachan, my eyes gloss over the posts and I don't really absorb what I'm reading. I really feel like I haven't been paying attention. AsPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>what counts as a flame war
When people start writing walls of text that have nothing to do with the op and constantly call each other faggots. How desensitized are you to that? If you can't tell what a flame war is, that goes to show how big the problem is.
>what users
This is not a 100 mile per minute board. Every thread sticks in the few consistent user's heads and sours the atmosphere of the entire site. It's palpable. There's not a constant stream of fifty threads to distract from one another.
>You can always just say it to them yourself
That never works. They're too dense to listen if they posted like that in the first place 9/10 times. The state of the site was not fine. If you have used it for a while, you would notice the change too. Arguments and shitposting were exponentially increasing.
>Sure, a stupid moderator can chase away an interesting contributor just because the things they say don't fall in line with the rest
That is such a strawman. This isn't reddit. People don't get shadow banned for not liking a movie or whatever. Some 4cuck ideologue is always going to be abrasive and post nothing of actual value. Anybody that can actually have an original thought and not be a dick is fine. A person like that is less likely to talk about politics or other low-brow shit(janitors talk about it all the time). This site isn't a democracy and it's not a society. It's a discussion/entertainment platform. The site has been chugging along fine until recently. What is your definition of stagnation? I'd rather have site activity plummet and die than have it be replaced with the same shit that's everywhere else.

I am more than invested in Ubuu as a platform for people to exchange ideas and opinions. So even if some those views are unpopular or even downright retarded, so be it, it's a risk you take along with the core concept. If you're looking for a place to socialize with a good atmosphere and whatever else, well, isn't that what things like Discord are for?

Also, way to be conceited and assume that just because I disagree I don't understand your views. Oh well.

I've been browsing here on and off for the past 8-9 years, occasionally stopping by every couple weeks. I think what you said about the 'low-key rage in the back of most imageboards' is right. Across all of the places I've gone to they've been infected with a vicious anger and filled with people who view imageboards as their own personal dumping grounds. It's not even that they didn't have shitposters before, but now the shitposters run the entire place and refute any attempt to actually discuss topics at hand.

Even worse they view bans or attempts at quality control as an affront against their person. So they proceed to blow up and shitpost even harder or attempt to drag everyone else down with them. I don't know what can be done about it either because all of these imageboards have a common origin, and shit tends to drip down the sides and spread.

Hopefully you guys can steer out of this storm. It's a rough one.

I think we have all noticed the recent influx of edgy pepe faggots. While I don't think think this warrants any rule changes, I do think a state of emergency is required. I basically want whoever posted these three things to be banned, so as to preserve the sanctity of this board.
