I've just pruned a few > 4 weeks inactive mods, and we have almost nobody left. So, it's time to bring in some new mod team members.

If you'd like to mod Uboachan, please answer the questions below. I will skip qualifications and choose whoever I like the most. Just kidding. Probably.

Please note that if you don't regular on IRC, you almost certainly won't be chosen. Half of the community happens there, and we don't want a bunch of half-users modding the site.

* What is your tripname on the boards, if any?

* What is your nickname on the Uboachan IRC channel?

* How often are you on the Uboachan IRC channel?

* How long have you been visiting Uboachan?

* How often do you browse Uboachan?

I just use the tongue-in-cheek Tripfagging for now, will change soon.

* What is your nickname on the Uboachan IRC channel?

* How often are you on the Uboachan IRC channel?
Every day or so

* How long have you been visiting Uboachan?
Over 2 years now

* How often do you browse Uboachan?
Every day. Yup. Mostly /fg/ and related boards.

The boards pretty much became infantile with the new shift, for some reason. Uboa has been busier than this and will probably end up getting that way again. An ounce of preparation, etc.

And honestly, the IRC doesn't have anything to do with modding skills. I understand better now where you were coming from on the PR bit, now. But the thing is, Seisatsu isn't asking for moderation skills. That isn't anywhere in the application, otherwise I'd agree with the fact that the IRC point is irrelevant to being a mod. But seeing as he's looking for fresh people with likely no experience in moderation at all, there's no reasoning against it being a larger requisite of becoming a mod. Otherwise, if he were looking for qualifications, I'd agree. The IRC would take a back-seat to skill, in that case.

Mainly the IRC is wanted for the real-time communication aspect, and the insurance that a person is alive and active more than checking the mod logs to see when they logged in.

When the board picks up again in due time, the capacity of IRC will be useful. Give it a month or so when everything's a bit more stable and we've got a few functions we lack. Sorry if I came off as an ass originally (I probably did, lol).

Also, good luck to all the recent applicants!


Holy shit I don't even know where to begin with you.

Seisatsu is the administrator. He's the one in charge of hiring new mods. Now take into account he's very active in IRC. He needs to know who you are and have opportunities to talk to you and idk interview you or give you guidelines on how to mod whenever he's able. If you're a regular on IRC, whenever he's able turns into whenever you're both online.

That and he's much more willing to hire someone he knows and has talked to and has gotten to know than random text on an anonymous site. Being a regular on IRC means he can assess your skills in dealing with a community in real-time. Otherwise he doesn't know who he's hiring.


also seisatsu hire sno hire sno



That's fair enough. But since Uboachan will be busier soon, according to your prediction, that's all the more reason you guys should try to find a capable mod

And you didn't really come off as an ass at all, just a tad aggressive, but that's the way of the internet


Your trip sums you up quite nicely


Applications closed. I'll make a news post soon with instructions for phase 2.

Hi there.
Uch has a lot of people who are very talented, perhaps you could hold a contest-like thing to design a favicon for the site?

Unless you guys have already got one planned.


this sounds like an interesting idea.

Oh my GAHHH!!!
"How the HELL do I protect my trip?! How do I reply to specific posts?!! WHAT THE HELL IS "SAGING"?!!!"

The above may be seen in many places if we don't get a REAL FAQ like Ponychan. I had to go to EFFing PONYCHAN, to find out this shit! (humor, XD)

Read it and weep, and then get us a similar FAQ for Uboachan…please, DX.

>mfw this thread

Posting on ubuu assumes you have some prior experience with other chans, since it's, you know, an obscure chan.

Alternatively you could actually read the faq instead of posting asking about things that are on it making it look like you didn't read it to begin with.


Yeah, sorry. I really over did it with the OP. =(

I actually just wanted to suggest putting some more info in the FAQ (after all, this IS the suggestions board).

Really, sorry for the OP. I feel like an ass. (-_-)


Or learn like I do on chans; by seeing if the post failed then rushing to delete it like a mad man.


Good advice.
Funny too, XD.

Um, sorry if this is just me being bitchy, but is there any way for the sidebar frame not to have an attached, non functional scrollbar attached to it? It seems pointless and distracting.

Pic is only there because it didn't like my text-only post.


Here, let me help you with that:


I'm assuming that your browser and computer works the same as mine.
Now then: if you don't want to use firefox for some reason, then you can right click on any non-picture link in Uboachan (such as /sugg/ or /fg/) and open the link in a new tab. That sidebar should be gone in that tab, and you might want to add the tab to your favorites or something.


We don't support Fuckwit Explorer.


Ahh, thank you, everyone. Switching my browser is something I've been meaning to do for a while now. Just not to firefox, as it dislikes my internet connection and slows everything way, way down. I'm going to try Chrome, see if that works.

Thank you for not hating my use of IE.

So Mathew, the programmer for Dream vs. Dream, posted an idea for a board for Dream vs. Dream so that everything could be more organized. It would help out a lot in that we'd be able to separate everything out. For example, we could have a thread for posting the movesets in and for critique and advice on them, we could have another for art and spriting work, we could have another music production, etc.

It's not imperative that we get a separate board, but it sure would help us all out. Thanks in advance!


Unfortunately so many users have projects here that it would become a problem if I started handing out boards for all of them.

I could consider making a separate imageboard at projects.uboachan.net to do just that, though.


Either one would really help at this point. Thanks for considering it.

Is there a way to change the colourscheme to futuba lke on the old uboachan? Black on dark grey is hard to read.
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



Any plans to make it so the style switcher's available even when the sidebar's gone? I don't think people who dislike the sidebar should be forced to use Uboachan Classic.


…What the fuck?

That's actually a bug. I'll look into it.





Man, that was quick.

Looks to be fine on my end, so thanks.


Thanks for the help.

You need a site style that just puts a giant uboa in the middle of the screen. :)

Hey guys, what about that edit button, Eh?
Can we have one?
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


We'll probably have an edit button in 2-3 months.


Snufkin is not amused one bit, but would like to hear you out first. Why would it take so long to add an edit button? That was one of the best things of the old boards.


We're using Tinyboard. This is the developer's feature schedule: http://tinyboard.org/wiki/index.php?title=TODO

The only way it'll get done earlier is if I can make him bump the edit feature into 0.9.4, or if I do it myself.


That's not to say neither of those things will happen. We could have the edit feature in a couple weeks. I don't know how it will play out.


:( alright, Snufkin will just make sure he thinks about his posts carefully before posting.

Wallpaper board? Please?
3 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


The inactivity is probably because there aren't many YN wallpapers out there like you said. I saw a wallpaper thread on /seccom/ though.


uboaru should have wallpapers


File: 1317154644153.png (224.21 KB, 336x342, 1312293700662.png)


Does every board really need to be active? There was a huge thread on /yn/ with awesome wallpapers, but I can't find it anymore..

A wallpaper board would serve much more as a repository I think..

Anyway, worst case scenario they could just create a Wallpaper General board and have a Yume Nikki themed wallpapers thread on it anyway.



Usually I would say yes, a board needs to be active. Otherwise what's the point of having it?

Repositories can be cool though.


File: 1317255901332.jpg (28.34 KB, 500x333, reggie_i_dunno.jpg)

Currently we want to use Uboaru for wallpapers, since it has tagging and whatnot, wallpapers are kind of a unique thing like that.But you can also just use /ot/ and /yn/ for a wallpaper thread or something. I dunno, I -really-, don't see much point in having an entire board for it.

Rozen isn't responsible for the new software, I am.

Empty replies are enabled in the settings and should be allowed. I'm coordinating with the developer right now to find out if this is a bug.
