Thanks to a suggestion on https://uboachan.net/ot/res/15010.html#q15030 I thought we could do our own wayback for research.

I found captures of a thread that was deleted due to thread limit:

>'… they were the funniest ones.'
I don't belive that the thread was funny in anyway. This is a research into wayback, non-derail.
>'… at the end.'
>'why are my posts in that thread deleted?'
The thread was deleted due to what I believe was a 'thread limit' of sorts. I was also asking this question too, anon-san.
Have you looked at the Wayback Machine for other funny posts? I think I have jumped on the bandwagon, learning from past mistakes.

I believe that RTs Vol. IV is going soon. Vol. III made my heart shocked when I checked the /ot/ board because of thread limits.

I'm not sure on the first two Volumes or where they are (deleted?)

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.

Post your arguments here.

So, why are you guys so anti-memegame?

Corey was the best thing that ever happened to this site.
And yeah, of course there hasn't been drama, maid's abandoned the boards lmao

Oh, I know. Good old times.But found it ironic that in less than a month since this thread was created, another thread got shit and someone got banned.

Weren't the rules changed about a year ago and Corey became allowed outside of /melon/ ?


No one actually got banned
Those were joke 1 second bans.


I could remember that Preasul posted a sticky on Off-Topic about the Corey board before you said that you didn't need it anymore, let alone Moog experimentation.

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


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

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


How's that? Each row has a link to the thread and a link to the individual post, and the thread link when moused over gives the full name of the board.

Working in the name of the thread is possible but more difficult because of how the software is written.


Not trying to force you to implement this or anything (I'm just asking because I think this would be something nice to have), but is it possible to make the front page redirect you to the [last 50 posts] of a thread if the post counter is =<50? That'd speed things up with loading long threads.


The last 50 posts feature isn't working at all for me currently so this will require some digging if I do it.


Thank you very much.
Just the numbers is fine. Just seeing what posts belong to the same threads is more than enough.
This makes it much easier to quickly drop into the site. Thanks.


Maybe a structure like this:


It's just an idea.

File: 1484218625310.png (15.33 KB, 190x162, image.png)


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.


Also, what if Madotsuki was kidnapped along with monoko and monoe? That could explain why Madotsuki jumps off the balcony, not knowing it would end her life. She is just a child and didn't have a choose but to jump to avoid getting further tortured.


Wrong board mate, here we make theories about Sei and his clones.
Rape theories have been discussed a lot, I'm not sure about the arms part though.


Moved to >>>/yn/6183.

The Characters board looks dead, and its activity could probably be merged into Yume Nikki General. Are there any boards it might be a good idea to bring back from the annex, like the .Flow or 2kki boards for example? Why?

Picture Unrelated.


I think those are both fine merged with fangames. There aren't too many active fangames anymore, so it's not like things are flooded. I think general character discussion is fine in YN general, and we've already got an art board for art. Would be interesting to set up a booru for YN & fangames at some point, but that's prolly beyond the scope of ubuu.

>Would be interesting to set up a booru for YN & fangames at some point, but that's prolly beyond the scope of ubuu.


Yes for the merge, no one posts.

No for permadead board revival, because they were keked for a reason, no one posted, and if there are posts about .edge or 2kki to make, these can be made in /fg/, these things don't have enough activity for an independent board in this site.

It'd end dead and abandoned in two weeks just like the last one.


Maybe I should put that back in the navbar somewhere.


Revive my booru please.

File: 1468998328666.png (43.33 KB, 512x512, irc-chat.png)


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?

i'll use maidnaut's server because it's active

if there are other servers there definitely isn't a reason to avoid them. more emoji for everyone

Hey so, I was waiting for Sei to stop being MIA like he usually is, but I figured I'd link this here since he's got it linked in the irc.



>Sei doesn't talk to me
>He's MIA


My co-owner privileges have been removed, so this is no longer the "official" Uboachan Discord.

Use this link for my Uboachan server, which apparently collected some users when I wasn't looking. https://discord.gg/JzuTbJe

Slightly confused but whatever, it's better for us to have a dedicated server.

Still some neat channels and fun people on Maidnaut's server but I'll be putting my own in the navbar.

How about a roleplay board? It would probably keep the site active

Do you really want to see the site become a shitty ERP room?


I second this.
I love the type of people that erp brings to a site.


File: 1469854404814.jpg (156.25 KB, 852x480, gross.jpg)


Well, my friend, this logic is flawed because there is no such thing as a shitty ERP room.


File: 1469929737740.gif (1.98 MB, 314x196, fuckoffreee.gif)

Reminds me of that anon that suggested making ubuu a standard forum with accounts and shit.

File: 1469003987832.jpg (24.12 KB, 705x350, nyanko-newspaper.jpg)


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.

(Wow, is that too mushy?)


>told me over these past five years that the site is already dead
Isn't that more or less the time chesir and seagal have been here?


File: 1469030514862.jpg (46.61 KB, 635x423, keepgoing.jpg)

Ubuu died many times, but it's been peaceful lately.
Personally, I think that the site is much better when you take desicions 100% on your own.

Mods in this site have always been problem magnets anyway, and I don't see 8ch or tumblr around that much anymore.

The whole YN&fangames thing is also changing its fanbase, what was the last time an outstanding fangame appeared? I mean one that was worth discussion, last one I remember was Elysium City, and it's been a while.

I'd say we could keep the spirit high by trying a small event, or a contest to try and revive the thing, but I doubt anyone would participate, modern ubuu has no devs and the very reduced few we have(maybe 3…4?) are busy with their projects…

Most of modern YN fanbase is in tumblr, and they are faggots who get offended by the word faggot.

How will this end? We don't know, maybe good, maybe bad, maybe with some lulz…
Let's just chill and see where things go.


File: 1469037549433.png (10.53 KB, 640x300, Sei medidating on freedom.png)

"Uboachan" as we knew it has certainly died, but not the site. But we can strive to work on something out of it or not, if people is willing to contribute.

I think one of the major problems we're facing right now is that the Yume Nikki trend (because it was, sadly, a trend for most) is fading away, which leaves us with a really small number of people genuinely interested in the game, but who can't discuss anything because no new content is being generated + the content that was already there has been exhaustively covered.
As you can see, this means that boards like /yn/ are (virtually) dead. This is a really hard blow, because one of the things that characterized our site throughout the whole run and made us different from any other imageboard was "A community united through Yume Nikki". The only thing I can think of for improving this is to start looking for YN doujins (like that saddharma/dharma one) and other untranslated material and post those things here. Basically, monopolize the translations of anything related to Yume Nikki. That'd boost our activity and make us a place "worth of checking" once in a while to see if anything new happened, essentially making uboachan some sort of western point of interest for YN fans.

This, of course, would bring new problems:
1- Newfags, and I don't mean the normal-type, but tumblr-tier faggots.
2- You'd need an army of translators. Currently, I believe I'm the only person here capable of translating anything from Japanese who's willing to take a part on that [Although maybe (hopefully) there's more people].

Finally, I think we should at least add some policies to non-/ot/ boards regarding quality posting. Of course, I don't mean going to the extreme of saying "Shitposting is forbidden", but rather something like "It's discouraged." You can post some fun, just don't make the whole board a "fun"-posting place. If you wanna post about "muh freedoms" and how much you hate niggers, you have many other chans to do so. This isn't one of those.
If people see that the place has actually some discussion going on instead of being reddit 2.0, they will be more willing to stay.


This site is a relic of the past. It's not gonna have a flood of new people unless Kikiyama comes back from the dead and makes another update. But even when it dies, I hope it's kept running for nostalgia's sake.


If you have anything short and non-lewd, I could try my hand at it.


Ubuu Forever m8

Should we just delete the Wildcard board? Seems like nobody cares anymore. Nobody posts, nobody suggests any topics, and nobody talks about it.

Edit: /co/ discussion near bottom of thread.

/co/ is kill

sad day but such is fate



I'll take /co/, I'd hate to see it go to waste


File: 1467474811745.jpg (70.17 KB, 459x575, smug_fox.jpg)

I'll take over /co/ for you Sei.


Nah, boards aren't for sale lol. And it doesn't matter who runs it since it has no users. A moderation change won't fix that. Uboachanners just don't want to talk about comics or animation anymore for some reason.


>he responds to me like I am serious
DAAAAAAMMMMMMMMmnnnn i have way better chances than i thought! this at least puts me in "we dont want you at all but we'll be professional anyway" tier!!
