IRC/XMPP in 2010+8

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.

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.

News Post - Shift Change

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. As sad as it makes me to say this, I'm not the guy for this job anymore.

So, effective very soon, I will be stepping down. Our long-time staff member Writer, who has been here on and off practically since the beginning, will take up the title of "Owner", and all of the responsibilities and decision making powers that come with it. After a period of transition in which Writer will choose new staff members, revise the rules for the site, and create clear and public rules for the moderators to follow, I will become a regular Admin working under his guidance. I will, of course, continue being the System Administrator, and continue hosting the site.

Thanks for all the good times, folks. It's probably going to be a bumpy transition, but I really think that this is for the best. I hope that most of you can forgive me.

Sincerely,
Seisatsu

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.

The cp problem is back. Probably should unlock the janitor thread.
R: 6 / I: 3

Janitor Applications

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.

What Janitors Are NOT

Janitors are not moderators. They do not interpret the rules, moderate disputes, or take any actions against regular users. They also do not have any special privileges or status compared to regular users, aside from the job listed above.

Summary of Responsibilities

* Check the recent posts page several times a day. The more frequently the better.
* Be present in the moderation Discord channel, where you can talk with the site and Discord staff and other Janitors.
* Perma-ban and delete obvious spambot posts as quickly as possible.
* Ask Seisatsu if you are unsure about a post.
* Janitors who abuse their authority will be dismissed.
* Applicants who are chosen will receive a more complete Janitor's guide.

How to Apply

Post in this thread. Your post should contain the following.

* Email address where you can be reached.
* Timezone and most available times.
* How long have you been visiting Uboachan?
* How many times a day do you usually visit Uboachan?
* How many times a day do you think you can check the recent posts page?
* Why do you want to be a Janitor? Why should we choose you?

Thank you and good luck!

Remaking /cos/ round 2

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?

Just like how there isn't a board for every fangame, in the long term, yndd shouldn't have its own board. Potential discussion about the game will very quickly dry up. It's only a matter of time.

2018 Birthday News Post "What a Rush"

Wow, what a new year.

We started off January with the server crashing and a downtime of several days while the OS was reinstalled and backups were restored. At the same time, Yume Nikki was re-released on Steam after all these years, with an "official" English translation. And to top it off, a few weeks later a new 3D game inspired by the original was announced, developed by a third party game development company allegedly under the supervision of Kikiyama themselves!

A result of this has been and probably will continue to be a huge boost of interest, injecting new life into the fandom, and bringing levels of activity to Uboachan not seen for some years. We may find that we are surrounded by a newer, younger fanbase which comes from a very different background than many of us. Please remember that you were new once too, and don't treat these new fans with contempt. The atmosphere of this place may change as the world changes around it, but it is fruitless to resent the flow of time. Whether or not the new material lives up to expectations, I think it's fantastic that a new generation can be introduced to a fandom we have enjoyed for over a decade, by the emergence of new content. And hopefully, we'll enjoy it too!

A few more changes have happened on the boards recently. A new board, /yndd/, was created for discussing the new "Yume Nikki - Dream Diary". The /cos/ board was annexed for the time being, and a new board with new rules will take its place this year. This will hopefully prevent the new board from becoming a creepy mess. There is now a dedicated section for download links on the sidebar. And lastly, the board software was updated; though it was mostly if not entirely a bugfix release, some of these fixes were sorely needed.

That's all for now. Happy birthday Uboachan, and happy new year!

I've noticed a lot of intelligent, thorough, serious discussions on this site. Lots of great content, creepypastas, macros, and Mado of course. I have also noticed in my short time here the userbase here is quite versed in greater chan culture/history. Very nice to see some places still do it right.

Seisatsu, have you ever considered making an /int/ board? Because I know a lot of quality posters that would get along great with y'all, but mostly from various bastardizations of krautchan's /int/ that I don't think could acclimate immediately with this more Japanese and American spirit. Germans, Latinos, Hungarians, Strayans, Kazakhs, etc. intelligent folks with a lot of interesting things to say, but different from the uboachan posters as we know them. Don't get me wrong, the appreciation for YN and anime is there, but less so. Political theory, world news and dank menes take the center stage.

I do think that there is a market for another /int/ board in the chanosphere, not everyone is happy with KC right now, 8chan and 4chan are wastelands, and the little chans are too slow and intimate for a lot of people that are trying to get away from the younger generation of Bernds and find a place more in line with their level of discourse.

Just an idea. I like this place as it is, but perhaps the old guard here would be interested in a little fresh meat?

Good evening my friends. I am here today because I consider it my duty, for the betterment of this community to bring to your attention a matter of unprecedented import which should by no means be overlooked by any member of the moderation team here at uboachan. Unfortunately, I have come to know through events which I will go into later, that one of the moderators whom you have put great trust into is currently abusing their privileges for personal gain. It is now my burden to inform you of this gross miscarriage of justice. You see, today I have been banned for posting the image file which I have attached to my post. As you can clearly see, this is a rare specimen of the animal kingdom, an atretochoana, which I wanted to share with other users for the purposes of zoological speculation. It is unbelievably crass to deny the pursuit of biological study through censorship, particularly in this case wherein nothing of a potentially offensive nature is involved. As I am sure you will understand, I am utterly sickened and confused by this decision. I hope this notice finds a person of sound mind, and I urge you to reconsider your decision.

Sincere Regards,
Anonymous animal biologist.

Rule 1?

Rule 1: You must not be under 18 years of age, reveal your age, or ask someone else's age.

Rule 1 was set up basically to cover my ass since this is an nsfw site. I ban people who reveal themselves to be underage so that I am not knowingly allowing minors to possibly view nsfw content, but also ask that people just not talk about it.

Do you think there are any problems with the way this rule is written or has been implemented? I cannot unfortunately remove the 18+ requirement itself, but some people are unhappy with not being able to talk about age-related subjects currently.

Yo.
I use the recent posts section of the main page to view updates to threads I had recently participated in.
It can be difficult though because it doesn't mention what thread the post is from, only the board.

Currently it's structured like this

(Board):(>>comment)
(Board):(>>comment)
(Board):(>>comment)

What ends out happening is I have to click on all the links to find which one I had posted in because there is not indication which posts belong to what thread.

I think the recent posts section should be

(Thread):(>>comment)
(Thread):(>>comment)
(Thread):(>>comment)

That or remove the "Recent Posts" section entirely and replace it with "Recently Updated Threads".

Thanks.

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.

Meanwhile users have been flocking in droves for ages to unofficial Uboachan group chats and other communities' group chats for some time now, hosted on services like Skype and Discord. The IRC channel shows no signs of growing.

One thing that may be especially daunting for users of IRC is that when you log in old activity isn't shown to you. So if nobody's talking at the time it just looks like an empty dead chat forever. Using a different kind of chat service might alleviate appearances.

So what should we do? Is there a problem that needs to be fixed? Should we feature the IRC chat more prominently on the site, or make an official Discord perhaps if that's what's cool nowadays, or should we just resign to let it die?
R: 7 / I: 3

R: 5 / I: 2

News Post: Still Alive

Well, we're still here.

Many people have told me over these past five years that the site is already dead, or that the users here are only shitposters, or that this place just isn't worth running anymore. But the Recent Posts bar continues crawling forward without fail, and it's not just full of bullshit, and it makes me feel like I'm still making a worthwhile use of my time and effort in despite of our detractors. I think that, even though Uboachan has changed so much, and many things have ended forever, there is even now still quality content and discussion to be appreciated.

That's not to say that everything has been great. The CP spam was unbearable for a while and we took too long to come up with a good solution. Questionable or, yeah, even bad decisions have been made in the running of this community. I've felt so uncertain sometimes and wondered if I was making the right choices, or if I was betraying my values or the values of this site in the name of peaceful conduct in times of trouble. There have been ugly and destructive public arguments between staff and users, and the staff have been divided in opinion on important issues and come to uneasy compromises.

Our two most involved moderators left a few weeks ago, and the staff room is very quiet now. But, maybe it's for the best if I run most of this show on my own from now on. The other staff members will continue to support my efforts to keep the wheels turning.

And I'm really still trying, you know, because I still love Uboachan! I hope that this can keep being a place that other people can love as well. You may not believe it, but without Uboachan I would not even have half of the IRL friends I have now, I would not be living with these cool roommates, I would never have met my previous or current girlfriend, and I may have never even moved out of my Mom's house, or gone on a real adventure in my entire life. The power of the Internet to connect people together is deeper than I can fathom. This place is so special to me, so I'm going to keep loving it and running it for as long as I can.

Let's see for a while longer where Uboachan can go from 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.

1) Use captchas. (Once-a-day captchas are a feature that is specific to 8chan and I don't know if we can implement them.)

2) Use an automated spam-detection service like Akismet. The con here is that we'd have to share every post's content with Akismet's servers in order to check it for spam, including the user's IP address.

3) Hire a ridiculous number of Janitors and try to manage them all.

Word/phrase filters are impossible because the bots are too smart. Any comments or alternative suggestions are welcome.

Board Restructuring - Second Draft

Original Thread: >>2690
(Please read the original thread first.)

Based on feedback in the first thread, here is the second draft for the board restructuring. At the conclusion of this thread, we will begin implementing changes.

Yume Nikki:
/yn/ - YN General
/c/ - Characters
/fg/ - Fangames
/yume/ - Dreams

Arts & Entertainment:
/o/ - Oekaki / Art
/co/ - Comics / Cartoons / Anime
/cos/ - Cosplay / Conventions
/lit/ - Literature
/media/ - Media / Uploads
/og/ - Other Games

Miscellaneous:
/ot/ - Off-topic
/hikki/ - NEET / Advice
/x/ - Paranormal
/sugg/ - Suggestions / Meta
/wild/ - Wildcard

Annex:
/t/
/comp/
/2/
/mado/
/mono/
/seccom/
/uboa/
/tkki/
/flow/

Nuke:
/h/ (Original artwork can go in the art board.)
R: 22 / I: 5

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.

Here is a first draft plan for the new board list. Please read and comment. (We will also have a process for moving threads from annexed boards to the relevant new boards.)

First Category:
/yn/ - yn general
/c/ - characters
/fg/ - fangames
/cos/ - cosplay/conventions
/yume/ - dreams

Second Category:
/o/ - oekaki/art
/co/ - comics/cartoons
/lit/ - lit
/media/ - media
/og/ - vidya

Third Category:
/hikki/ - /neet/
/ot/ - off topic
/x/ - paranormal
/sugg/ - suggestions
/wild/ - wildcard

Annex:
/t/
/comp/
/2/
/mado/
/mono/
/seccom/
/oc/
/2kki/
/flow/

Nuke:
/h/ (Original artwork can go in the art board.)

This plan would take us from 25 boards to a more reasonable 15. .Flow and Yume 2kki would be considered Fangames from now on. All of the Yume Nikki characters and their respective fandoms would be discussed in the single unified /c/. /t/ is garbage, and /h/ is a literal dump. And, even after its revival, /comp/ is still very inactive; I highly recommend visiting Lainchan as they have a much nicer tech community.

News Post: New Year, New Outlook

Happy belated New Year Uboachan! And also, happy belated Birthday!

It may not look like much yet, but the staff have been busy devising new ways to make Uboachan great again this year. This has included subtle changes to the board rules, and reenvisioning of the policies by which the moderation staff operate. And behind the scenes, we've been working on bugfixes and new software to help us battle the rising tides of CP spam. Some shitty pedo won't be the death of us, and neither will negativity or bad vibes. We're stepping up our game in the background to clean this place up.

First off, the wordings of the rules have been altered to reflect a major change in the goals of the moderation staff. We're going to be tougher on shitposting this year. Let this be a warning: destructive posters and poisonous sentiments will be leeched from Uboachan like venom from a wound. If you are a total dickwad, you will first be warned generously to clean up your act, and then you will be banned. Let's all take this opportunity to be awesome and helpful people – the kind of people who build up a community rather than tearing it down. We could use some community-building right about now.

The CP spam remains a problem this year, but we've got people working behind the scenes to make the spammer's job harder. Every new countermeasure we develop incites an almost immediate change in the way the bot operates to nullify that countermeasure. We are being watched, so we're going to watch right back. Please welcome Jove, our new Janitor and Countermeasures Developer, who has been writing us software to help the board and the staff do their jobs more quickly and efficiently. Among these new developments is a bot that notifies the staff of new posts and suspected floods. We'll also be hiring additional Janitors to help us out! If you'd like to help us keep Uboachan clean of spam, shoot me an email at seisatsu@uboachan.net and tell me why you would be a valuable addition to the team.

And last on the docket, we've got way too many boards! It's not my fault, I didn't do it, it was like this when I got here. :(

We're finally going to be working on merging and restructuring boards. Don't worry, the staff will be accepting requests to move threads from retired boards to their new and consolidated replacements so that good content isn't buried and lost. And of course, we will be relying on input from the userbase during this process to ensure that existing board communities are preserved throughout these changes. This is going to include a major change to /n/, which will be revealed shortly.

Stay tuned, play nice, and have fun. I love you guys.

JESUS CHRIST SEISATSU, work, your solutions are not enough because we're a bunch of whinny babies and we're always complaining and requesting new features even if this is just an imageboard because you're the admin so you're our slave forever and you have to solve our requests and make us happy for no reason!

CatChan

Hello, 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?
You can download it from here. It works in lainchan, 4chan, 8chan or KC.
https://raw.github.com/Dogman8/CatChan/develop/CatChan.user.js

You'll get:
Cross board/domain catalog with tag.
Other basic features, such as favicon or notifications.

News Post: Bugs and Spam and Yucky Stuff

Sup 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.

First off, my long-time roommate and several year veteran Uboachan poster Izumi was just given moderator powers a few days ago, and is now getting situated. It's a bit unusual for a user to be promoted directly to Moderator status without being a Janitor first, but I need some more direct help running the site, and I feel that living together with someone else on the staff will give me a partner to collaborate with on a day-to-day basis if need be. It's really nice to have another person here in my house who's been active on Uboachan longer than I've been running the place, and I hope that it will help us communicate better with the entire staff team if we go at running things together. The staff list in the FAQ is also up to date again.

I'm sure everyone's noticed the annoying CP spam that's been constantly appearing on the boards. Bit of bad news here. I've tried setting up countermeasures such as phrase filters to automatically block posts, but as soon as I set them up, the bot changed tactics and stopped duplicating phrases between posts or leaving links in the post body. Unfortunately, this is a confirmation of our worst fear regarding these spam waves: they're only partially automated. An actual living and breathing pedo scumbag is behind the scenes, willfully and actively adjusting the bot's parameters to break through our security measures every time we update them. Not even captchas will stop a human. There is literally no way to stop the spam, and there never will be, and it will probably never go away until the person responsible is tracked down and arrested. Most likely they're in another country and this will never ever happen. All we can do is hire more Janitors to try and keep on top of them and hope they give up eventually. Sorry guys, I know it sucks but there's nothing I can realistically do here except ramp up our cleanup efforts. Though, if any of you have any novel ideas, please find and post in the relevant thread in /sugg/. I'd be happy to hear some fresh thoughts.

Further compounding the above issue is a weird bug we've nicknamed the "Ghost Thread Bug", which prevents threads from dying properly when a staff member deletes them. Deleting the thread deletes the image and makes the thread page 404, but a shadow thread remains on the board index and won't go away until someone else posts in the board or an administrator manually rebuilds the index. This is a huge pain in the ass and leaves garbage everywhere each time we clean up a spam wave. I've tried a couple things to fix it but they didn't work, and what's more the thread deletion code looks correct and I can't figure out why it isn't working. Even worse still, the maintainer for our software has basically retired and I don't have the skills anymore to track down the glitch in the codebase. If anyone here is competent at PHP debugging, please email me and I'll set you to work tracking this thing down. (My email address is in the FAQ.)

On a lighter note, I recently found out that the Oekaki module has been broken for at least a month. Oops. We needed some configuration changes to support a new version that was updated in some time ago, which have now been added, so it should work again. Go play around and help me test it here: https://uboachan.net/test/res/159.html

Also, for any Uboachanners on the west coast US, I'm going to be departing northbound on a road trip from Willits, California on the 23rd of this month with Izumi and a few other friends and settling in Bremerton, Washington for ~10 days before we turn around and head back to Sacramento. I can't stop to meet anyone on the way up, but I may be able to stop for short hangouts on the way back south, depending on how things turn out. If you'll be in Bremerton from the 24th of November to the 3rd of December, or somewhere along the route back to Sacramento around the 3rd, or if you live in my general Sacramento area, email me some time! I love offline meets. Again my email address is in the FAQ.

That's all for this time. This is a big news post, so I might make some edits in the next couple days, in which case I'll note it at the bottom here. Thanks for reading!

Board merging

Have 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.

Having a lot of boards makes the place seem even more low traffic than it is, and causes too much fragmentation.

Version of YN hosted on the site

Hey! 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.

The installer .exe of the game is dated April 3rd 2008. The version I have had since 2009 is labelled as Version 3 of the English translation, with an installer .exe dated April 11th 2008. My version's .rar archive also has a readme that contains info about bugfixes and save data compatibility. The readme in the installed game's folder is slightly extended compared to the one in Uboachan's version, containing info about Fullscreen toggle with F4.

I can't remember where I downloaded my version from, but since it claims to be a more up-to-date version compared to Uboachan's, I'm wondering why it's not hosted here. Did you guys simply not know about it or is there some known issue with the version I have? I could upload the version I have if you're interested.

Janitor Applications

The time has come again for Janitor applications.

Recently, spambots have been "attacking" us in waves, and they come unpredictably and at all times of the day and night. As it is, our current moderation staff cannot be watching the site 100% of the time, so sometimes spam slips through and remains on the site for longer than is acceptable. (Especially CP spam, it seems.)

So for that reason, we are hiring new Janitors. Janitors are staff members who are responsible only for deleting automated spam posts and perma-banning the bots that posted them. It's a small job, but keep in mind that when new moderators are needed they are usually selected from existing Janitors.

Only a couple to a few applicants will be chosen to be Janitors. If you are interested in this staff position, please read and fill out the application carefully, and keep in mind that the completeness of your answers will play a role in your selection.

Whenever I try to play certain sound effects or music in RPG Maker 2000 (the translation by Don Miguel), it will crash on occasion. This is not a thing that happens sometimes with all files, but all times with some files. In Yume 2kki, trying to play bgm055 will play nothing, while sound effects such as chandler9 (I think) will cause a slew of error messages, eventually leading to the system almost hanging, requiring me to hard reboot. I was unable to get a screen capture, as this was slowing my computer down to the point of not being able to do anything, but the error said something along the lines of
>DirectSound Error
>INVALAD_PARAM(?)
I do not know of any sort of special properties on the files.
Is there a fix to this? Is there a download to another translation?

>After years and years complaining ubuu image is bad for the eyes, this is actually the first style ever posted by someone

Since I can't find the other post where you were asking for this, I'm posting the sheetstyle I made for ubuu.
Ironically, I will keep using Uboachan Classic, because it's the only one theme I feel it's well placed. However, there may be users that like to use this one.

It's still a beta, and I've left some of elements untouched because I didn't see any noticeable change after playing with them a bit (This is mostly because if I you try to move from a page to another, or to post, the sheetstyle will be reswitched again to Uboachan Classic. I think these are inside that category but, again, I don't know; I may missed something).
I'd appreciate if you checked those and either modify them yourself or tell me what they do so I do it (They're under the /*must check later*/ messages).

This is just half of it, since it does not work with the frames on in the news page or any other board with the frames on. But it's 3am and I can't think anymore.

Uboachan Classic / Gray Theme Review

Hello Uboachanners,

I am calling for users to review our two original themes, Uboachan Classic and Uboachan Gray.

Since I adapted Rozencrab's theme from Old Uboachan, I've been getting constant complaints. Due to this, a while back I added a variation theme, Uboachan Gray.

Unfortunately, when working with dark colors, the appearance actually depends heavily on the end user's monitor. For example, the Uboachan Classic theme looks perfect on my laptop, but on my cell phone it's unreadable.

I would like to hear from you what you like, hate, and would change about whichever of the two themes you use often.

Thank you!

I think that, on the yume 2kki and .flow boards, there should be a thread that is edited to contain a link to the most recent version of the game in the op. A bit like the games list thread /fg/ but less like a directory of the board and more of just a one-stop place to find the game. It can be irritating having to scour through so many threads to find the most recent version of the games. It can also maybe preserve older links too for legacy purposes, only adding on newer ones as they come. It can also help with board fragmentation and keep all the updates in one thread.

Autosage

So 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.

Basically, what I'm wondering is whether it seem like a good idea for autosage be in place on Uboachan. Since Uboachan is much less active than many other imageboards, it may help increase activity if autosage wasn't in place, or if the bump limit was at least increased on certain boards. At the very least, it may make sense to change it on a couple boards, such as /fg/, where it makes less sense to create many new threads, especially considering Uboachan doesn't delete threads past a certain page number. As it is now, when a game which garnered more discussion has an update, it either gets overlooked by many due to the thread not bumping, or a new thread needs to be made, which seems to rarely occur, at least in recent years.

Picture unrelated.

I like this place. On some sites, it's just a dead imageboard and you feel like you're playing hide and seek in an abandoned building. Here it's like nighttime in a museum or something. You just wander around and everwhere you look there's something interesting. Sure everything's quiet and still and it takes awhile for new things to appear but that's ok. If I look closely, I'll see someone sitting in the dark, reading a book or listening to music or drawing or something. They seem nice. Maybe I'll say hi later. I think I'll stick around.

I googled "dark museum" and this was one of the first results. Must be a sign.

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%.

Various countermeasures have been put into place which should hopefully allow us to ride out the abuse. These countermeasures may or may not interfere with your browsing experience.

If you suddenly find that you are unable to connect to Uboachan's website, you may have been caught in our countermeasures by mistake. In that case, please tell the staff on IRC.

The identity of the attacker remains unknown.

Proposed Board Consolidation

Activity has been slower than I'd like lately. Some of our IRC users suggested that we have too many boards, and I somewhat agree.

I'd like to propose the following changes:

* Kill (Annex) the Toriningen board. (No posts in 3 months)
* Merge the Yume 2kki and .flow boards. (Posts will be preserved.)
* Merge the Artistry and Literature boards. (Posts will be preserved.)

I'd like to hear input on these proposals and any additional ideas.

The mental health discussions on the current /wild/ are pretty interesting. May I suggest we make a mental health board permanent? It fits in well with the context of this website (which is mostly about dreams and mindfuck type things), and I think it most of our users would relate to it and benefit from it. Why I am suggesting a complete new board is because while people CAN discuss it in /ot/ or /n/, they usually don't, and having an actual board on it encourages discussion on the topic.

DIY Section

Well I don't know if this has been suggested or not, but I think it would be really awesome to have a DIY section! People could post their how-to's of making YN/YN fangame stuff. I've seen some really cool stuff posted randomly, and I think it would spark a lot of creativity~

NSFW Spoiler Rule Opinions

Discounting spam votes, the poll from yesterday seems to show that the (general) consensus among the boards is to remove the NSFW Spoiler rule.

Before I make a decision, I'd like to hear any strong opinions AGAINST the removal of the rule. Who would like to keep the rule, and why, and how opposed are you to its removal?

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.

Basically, what I'm getting at is…what if we made an "/ft/" for fangame theories?

Anyways, I was just wondering why some threads don't go back to the front page of the board/the top of the board when they get new posts. Like, I could understand if it's really inactive or short or stupid or something, but for example, the .Flow theory thread, which has tons of posts, wasn't brought to the top last time I posted in it. Just wondering why since people would get replies faster and stuff if this didn't happen.

An anon on another thread said "I really feel like the Off-topic and Meta boards already are making the Yume Nikki-related boards inactive, I feel like a NSFW board would just make them dead, basically."

Alright. I'm done. I've been patient with you, Uboachan, damn patient, as patient as patient can be, I've put up with this endless onslaught of bullshit ever since we went through the switch, but if Moga won't even stay, I see no reason to. Thanks again, Seisatsu, this was a great site before you fucked everything up, hope you're enjoying sucking those mods' cocks while they jizz all over the rest of the community. Yama was right to move Dream vs. Dream off of here, and Snow was right to fuck everything up just to demonstrate the shithole this site would turn into. Goodbye Uboachan. Enjoy your spoiler images and modfaggotry and all of that shit. Wish me luck in finding Moga, though I doubt I will since he probably wants to detach himself from this shithole as much as he possibly can.

Moderator Applications

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?

* Why do you want to be a mod?

* During what times of day are you most likely to be available for modding? (Include your timezone.)

* ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?

This thread will be open for an unspecified amount of time, so get your applications in quick. Once the thread is locked, an announcement will follow with a list of who made the cut.

Dream vs. Dream Board

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!
