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.

No, they're not. /hikki/ user was warned. I don't think there's any hope of moderating /yndd/ right now because I'd have to ban half the users. I'm waiting for people to calm down a little so that exceptionally shitty posts have a more reasonable baseline to stand out from. If that doesn't happen I might have to make more specific rules to judge /yndd/'s low-key ragehate against, or just treat it like another /ot/.

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'm bumping this because musikchan, which is even smaller and slower than uboachan, has an interesting embed feature where people can post the share link of a youtube video and it can be popped out. If they have it, I don't see what's stopping ubuu.

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.

>locking threads that have turned into flame wars
I could easily agree to that, except I don't recall seeing any threads like this, save for maybe that one random spam with a dumpster photo. So what exactly counts as "flame war"?
>Lessen tensions between users
Wait, lessen what between what now? The vast majority of the users are anonymous non-entities, what are those users on behalf of whom you're supposedly speaking?
>Stop newfags thinking it's okay to post here like they do on twitter or 4chan
You can always just say it to them yourself, instead of waiting for moderators to step in; if they listen – problem solved, if not – well, they will get a warning or ban sooner or later. Pretty sure the current moderation handled cases like that just fine.
>Make the site more attractive to older posters and high quality posters, increasing the percieved quality even more, which will in turn increase level of effort even more until quality levels explode to infinity and we all feel really neat.
Hey, sounds just like every utopia out there! Except, as we know, none of them ever work, it always devolves into tyranny and stagnation somehow. Not to mention I really don't see how quality of the posts has got anything to do with moderation. Sure, a stupid moderator can chase away an interesting contributor just because the things they say don't fall in line with the rest, but the opposite I just can't see happening.

>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'd most certainly love a hentai/alternative board. Believe me, as much as I LOVE spoilering every smutty image I post, it gets sort of old after a while. On top of that having nowhere to discuss such… "adult" matters is just unclassy on a NSFW-chan. Oh, yeah, Uboachan needs moar dickgirls, too.

I don't think you really are the guy at OP but whatever,let's pretend you are.

The fact you think the whole thread is actually addressed at you, that you don't understand it's a generalization on how annoying newfags can be, and just how it basically is a joke to keep them away because some people genuinely believe it's a copy of undertale, is too sad. It just shows you don't understand our website at all and you only come here to stir shit up and prove your little point that "we're just 4chan hurr".

We made fun of people who made really stupid comments in the same way other people laugh of stupid youtube/tumblr/american/etc comments. You only complain because your nick is there. That's hypocritical.

Wrong, very wrong, please read everything in this post to understand what is wrong with your posts, and it's pretty much the first assumption every newfag makes.

Posting here is very different from 4chan and the cultures behind it are different as well.

Modern 4chan is nothing else but an edgy anonymous facebook, if you take a look at the posting guideliness you'll see there are lots of things that aren't allowed here,

Posting here as if this was 4chan and acting like a 4chan user will get you two things:

>You will be publicly shamed and told to fuck off to 4chan


>You will probably be banned or get a warning depending on your level of autism

Let me lay a few things down for you. Judging by what you wrote so far, you perfectly prove op's point. First of all, you project. Just because you didn't want too many people knowing about YN before, that does not make you like the users here. You are a textbook faggot, you are overly sensitive, and you are entitled. People are allowed to be elitist when it comes to things they know a lot about. Only people who are too stupid to get in the know and expect to be accepted by a community just because they claim to have a shared interest, have a problem with protectionism. Op's concern probably has to do with this forum rather than the wider, "YN community". Uboachan has been developing its own feel and customs for many years now. It is perfectly reasonable to be worried about an infiltration of people who do not know about or care about this board's culture. It is evident that you do not. You do not value any of those things. When you were afraid of a lot of people learning about YN, you were just mimicking people who do actually care about preserving a community isolated from social media culture, mainstream sensibilities, and idiots. You just happened to slip through the cracks. At some point though, you became self-aware of your own faggotry, possibly sub-consciously, and began putting yourself in the shoes of and identifying with other faggots. Now, "elitism", is a bad thing to you. Nobody cares about you, you are an attention whore, you are cancer.

I'm gonna come clean since this still seems to be a remaining problem in the archive. I deleted some spam bot posts, but instead of doing it through the regular mod interface, I typed in
uboachan.net/mod.php
which the questin mark is missing from. Maybe that caused this issue. I sorta fixed the problem by posting something in each affected board, and then deleting those posts in the regular mod interface on 3/30. I think it's only still a problem in the archive.

I'm not so interested in Janitors who take over a week to apply, or who lost interest in applying while there was a dip in the spam, or who missed applications because they visit less than once a week, because they probably won't get anything done. Janitor applications are closed with the three who applied there. If those three don't work out or if they don't provide enough time-coverage, I will open the applications again. To be clear though, I just got my Internet service back so I haven't set up their accounts yet. I sent out the first instruction emails today.

Oh boy! CP Spam!

…Fuck! We were doing so well.

Looks like we got too active and the pedobots have been alerted to our presence. A volley of cp or other porno spam is appearing about once a day, usually posted specifically at times when staff in the US are asleep. The devious bastards! We also don't know if or when the spam posts will increase or decrease in frequency. That means it's time to hire a bunch of janitors again.

What we Need

We need several frequent (many times daily) Uboachan users in a variety of mostly non-American timezones (or with similar availability) who would like to become Janitors and help us keep Uboachan clean of spambot posts. Users in American timezones are still welcome to apply.

What Janitors Are

Janitors are otherwise ordinary users with special limited access to the site's administrative backend. Janitors have exactly one job, and that is to regularly check the recent posts page and Perma-ban & Delete spambot posts as they appear.

During the winter I'm GMT 0 here, during the summer it's GMT -1. I'm available from 9AM to 1AM during workdays. On weekends I don't have a fixed schedule, but it is closely the same.
I've been here I believe since 2012. I'm not sure how many times I come here in a day. On a low day I visit Ubo at least 3 times, but if I need to janitor it, I'll add a tab to it on my phone and check on it a minimum once every hour.
I don't know how much help I can be, but I've been here for so long that I don't mind giving something back to Ubo. And lately, almost each time I come here, there is cp on recents so there wouldn't be much difference except that I would be able to take it out instead of just reporting it.
The only problem I have is that you ask to be present in the discord channel. I have social anxiety and talking to people online without the anon mask makes me really uncomfortable. I don't have any problems in being presente when you needed me, but the rest of the time I'm going to shy away from being participative. Sorry for that.

I'm mostly available from 2pm to 11 pm on weekdays, and really anytime during the weekends. I first visited early in 2014, but only started frequently posting in 2016. I check up on posts around every hour or so. Spam just annoys me. It puts me in a bad mood because of how it breaks the atmosphere. I don't like it when people are trying to sell me things in general. Literally every time I see a spambot or solicitor, I report them.

Seems like as soon as I call in the cavalry, the threat disappears. Oh well, it is better to have a janitor staff on hand in case they come back.

After about a week, only three people have expressed interest. I guess that means I'm hiring all of you. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My home Internet is down right now because I'm totally broke, but I will try to get around to setting things up and sending out emails within the next week.

Making a new thread so that it starts on a new thought. Old thread still relevant >>3226

I'm resurrecting this idea for another round because of interest at >>>/o/4618

In booger's case, is it possible that the stalker got hold of her real name through a reverse image search due to the huge volume of cosplay and non-cosplay pictures she has posted here over several years? Surely those weren't all posted only on Uboachan. Isn't there some kind of guideline we could implement to warn people about cross-posting images that trace back to their IRL info?

If there are still cosplayers who want to post here, I'm worried they might just end up posting in /o/ or elsewhere instead. It might be better to have a board with some clear rules and warnings than have the photos just show up elsewhere on the site. I also don't want to tell interested cosplayers that they aren't allowed to post here.

Is it better to contain cosplayer activity to a single board, or to disallow it?
