IRC/XMPP in 2010+8For 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.
Very Late Birthday Newspost - 2021Hello. 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.
Should we delete the discord?It's circlejerky and killed all of the activity on this site. But at the same time, I've been there about two times and everyone in it was kinda pretentious so maybe it acts as a good containment center. I wouldn't be surprised if this site barely reached over 200 posts this year and more than half of those posts were me, which is sad since 2020 was the year of staying indoors
Vichan Bugs ThreadI thought it would be good to have this thread, because users then will be able to post any bugs they find and report them easily.
FIX2ALLAs many probably know, there is a bug in English Yume Nikki:
SuggestionWhat's up ubuus? I have a little suggestion for your site and I figured this board would be the best place to share it.
Community add threadIs there anyway to get a revival of the "community ad thread" that's linked to on the rules page? I went to follow it and got a 404. There is another site I would like to "plug" so to speak as I know multiple people that post on there. post here and on sushigirl. I would do it in /ot/ but it doesn't feel like it would fit with everything else going on there.
News Post - Ten More Years!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.
Recent Mod Faggotry with ImagesThis has been a long time coming, and I've noticed the problem getting worse and worse. Moderation of images has been getting excessive and overbearing. I'm going to try to be as civil as possible, and what I ultimately want is mutual understanding.
Community guide for lurkersThis is the Uboachan Wiki, https://uboachan.wikia.com a community effort to help new users lurk and learn more about this imageboard.
News Post - Shift ChangeI have lost control.
Janitor ApplicationsOh boy! CP Spam!
Remaking /cos/ round 2Making a new thread so that it starts on a new thought. Old thread still relevant >>3226
2018 Birthday News Post "What a Rush"Wow, what a new year.
Rule 1?Rule 1: You must not be under 18 years of age, reveal your age, or ask someone else's age.
Forced Anon?I've seen the suggestion tossed around in various places on the site that forced anon should be enabled on certain boards. Is this a good or bad idea and why, and for what boards? I may try this out only if there is an overwhelmingly positive response, since it's a fairly big change that could potentially upset a number of users.
Change the new posts ticker?Yo.
Mono sisters/Masada idea?So,I was talking with my girlfriend about Yume Nikki and we started mention theories. I'm not sure if someone has already came up with this. But we think it's possible that Monoko could possibly be raped and her hands resemble the rapists hands. Someone maybe grabbed her head and they could have pulled her arms back so she won't be able to move, maybe even broke her arms. we had an idea that Masada was madotsuki/monoko/monoe and the other's teacher, and he took great care of them. He might have died and that the spaceship could be something to take him to the after life. The reason why Monoe is smiling all the time could be because she is depressed or trying to hide some sort of pain, as "smile the pain away". Maybe she saw Monoko (and possibly Madotsuki as well) being rapped and was forced to watch and smile.
What should we do with IRC?So, lately the IRC has been largely abandoned. There's like, 11-15 people generally and a fair number of those are staff members, and discussion rarely happens. It's been going this way for a while, but lately the chat has been smaller than I've seen it for a very long time. New users actually enter sometimes but I think many of them get turned off of it quickly by the utter lack of activity.
News Post: Still AliveWell, we're still here.
How should we stop the spam?So, upon further investigation, it turns out that the spam bots are using countermeasures to thwart the less intensive anti-spam measures we could use. Unfortunately this means that there is no easy solution. Currently I can see three possible remedies.
Board Restructuring - Second DraftOriginal Thread: >>2690
We have way too many boards.I said in the news post that we're going to be merging and restructuring boards, and that we'd be getting user input during this process.
STOP DELETEING MY POSTS YOU IDIOTSTOP DELETEING MY POSTS YOU IDIOT
News Post: New Year, New OutlookHappy belated New Year Uboachan! And also, happy belated Birthday!
CatChanHello, I'm author of CatChan, which is a script which can generate cross board/domain catalog with tag filter. Do you operator or administrators want uboachan to be supported by this script?
News Post: Bugs and Spam and Yucky StuffSup guys. Don't adjust your television set, I've got a few orders of business to tell you about, and they're kind of important. It's really long winded this time so bear with me here.
JESUS CHRIST SEISATSU!: The ThreadOkay, I thought it's about time someone made a thread for bugs, or other stupid stuff to report that doesn't really need to be done every time in a new thread.
Spectrum: fangame help?Hello! So I've been designing characters and thinking of ideas for worlds for a fan game I want to make called Spectrum. My friend gave me RPG Maker VX Ace in Humble Bundle but it makes no sense to me. I am entirely new to this. Should I get 2000 or 2003? And does anyone have any advice on how to go about this?
Board mergingHave you thought about merging all these boards into a few general ones? For example, there would be one board for YN and one for all fangames. Offtopic boards could be consolidated into a smaller number as well.
Version of YN hosted on the siteHey! I'm getting back into Yume Nikki and its fangames after a few years and I have a question about the version of the game that's available for download here.
Janitor ApplicationsThe time has come again for Janitor applications.
Multiple Images per Post?We just performed a software upgrade, and we now have the ability to enable multiple images per post.
Resolving the ban before Xmas 2014Seisatsu, I came to contact you because I'm resolving my ban before Xmas 2014. I was taken aback at the change, probably as you may know people can now appeal bans for longer than 6 hours.
Captcha FeedbackUnfortunately, the rising tides of CP spam combined with the lack of a paid 24/7 moderation staff has required us to enable captchas. Please give us your feedback or suggestions here.
Oekaki Madness - Request for CommentsWe have Oekaki capability! For those of you who don't know, Oekaki allows you to draw your own image for your post using a built-in interface.
attn: seidatsuEven though I designed the front page I have no idea what's going on with this. It seems like on rare occasions bottom:15px on frontpage.css causes #maintable to stretch to the window height, not the page height.
Removing links to prohibited gameplay videosOut of respect towards fangame authors, /fg/ has a rule against ripping off resources from other fangames in our own fangames.
Styles!I'd like to know how many users use each theme. I'd also like to see how many users used either Gurochan or Photon on the old board.
Uboachan Classic / Gray Theme ReviewHello Uboachanners,
AutosageSo I know a lot of chan-type boards have an autosage feature which occurs once a thread hits a pre-determined post limit, but I'm a bit unsure if Uboachan does as well. It seems autosage likely is implemented though, since there have been various threads not bumping; mostly longer ones in /fg/, I believe.
Under Attack!For a couple of weeks now, our webserver has been under attack by an army of bandwidth consuming bots. We noticed the attack when we saw that we were over 90% of our bandwidth cap last month. We usually top under 20%.
Proposed Board ConsolidationActivity has been slower than I'd like lately. Some of our IRC users suggested that we have too many boards, and I somewhat agree.
Seisatsuyou know I fixed that banner that you wanted me to fix. You've been active obviously but failed to notice because of things or something.
NSFW Spoiler Rule OpinionsDiscounting spam votes, the poll from yesterday seems to show that the (general) consensus among the boards is to remove the NSFW Spoiler rule.
What about another fangame board?Now don't go jumping to conclusions when you read the subject. I've noticed that whenever a theory thread is/was made on /t/ concerning a fangame, it gets/got moved to /fg/. But /fg/ is mainly for American fangames in progress nowadays, or for programming/running help, or for "DERP WHERE DO I DOWNLOAD THIS" threads.
Other ChansI was thinking…
Post DeletionI'm starting this thread to inquire this website's staff regarding a recent bout of post deletions that happened for no visible reason. Affected threads include:
"orzSuggestion: Toriningen Board
Some sort of "Durr how does this work" page.^ We need one. For the stupid questions like "What are those little check-mark box thingys next to everybody's names?" and so on. Because if there's not, people will make topics like this because there to afraid to ask them anywhere else.
Moderator ApplicationsI'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.
A Real FAQ (picture referring to Uboachan FAQ)Oh my GAHHH!!!
Dream vs. Dream BoardSo 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.
