Let's talk about Japanese imageboards.

Are they still alive in 2023? Which ones do you visit?

Is Futaba still good? Heisei era otaku must be older now, so I'm not sure if the site declined a lot or users became riajuu dragged by real life. I remember they added a childrearing board and had a warning against talking about politics some time ago...

Also, here is a mixed Japanese-English mixed imageboard, it's not very active but there are some interesting threads: https://boards.nihongoch.net/net/koko.php?res=4

Never really deeply lurked Futaba but my favorite poster ever is the guy(s?) that posts a Love Live girl almost every day wishing Toshi-kun to have a great day, and then like clockwork some guy responds for multiple posts telling them to stop posting and to fuck off.

very 4/qa/esque


Does anyone remember Tanobb?
It was an auto-translating imageboard run by a Japanese admin from 2015-07-08 to around 2017-06-12, and a relatively large proportion of the userbase was from Japan. Users would browse the site in the supported language of their choice and post using one of the supported languages. A machine translation of each post along with a copy of the original text with the line breaks removed would then be made available to users browsing the site in another language. Users could also submit their own translations of each other's posts for when the machine translation inevitably got them wrong. This wasn't the first imageboard to incorporate auto-translation, but it's one of the first ones I came across, and I thought it was pretty neat in concept. Fortunately, many of the threads have been archived so you can still see them for yourself.

Man, that sounds really cool. I wonder how much work is required to make a modern version using something like deepl. Conversing with Japanese people or any non-English speakers in general sounds really neat.
But, the issue would then become getting people to use it. I don't think many Japanese people would be interested in what we have to say, right?


I don't know if it's still like this, but there used to be a general audience for boards like this in East Asia under the guise of "cultural exchange". There was a niche of english-learning (text)boards but native (and retarded) English speakers started using them and not even saying anything helpful about English and they became avoided.
Which kind of sounds like how immigrant/expat communities are treated there if it's not PRC.


I've been looking at futaba a bit more recently and noticed that there's a good bit of AI generated images being used for threads. Pretty nice how that's worked out, wish more people would embrace it as a neat tool than something to demonize and shun.

Gone from Ubuntu to Debian, but Debian kind of sucks as a desktop environment (constant freezes, poor drivers and performance issues. Also issues with Steam's client)

Thanks to a link from a guy that lead to discussion and a link from another guy, we have links to software that makes cute voices!

I'm using the first link personally because it has Zundamon, which is the absolute cutest artificial voice. I'm making a thread here on /qa/ because the original thread is on /jp/ and /jp/ threads can fall off after a couple weeks and this is too cool to lose that quickly.

Ehh, "katakanization"/loanword adaptation is a phonological process while romanization is purely orthographic. Zundamon and Zunndamonn stand for exactly the same sounds referring to the exact same thing, while enerugii and enajii are two separate words that ultimately have the same Greek root but went down different paths.

Who could dislike this funny little green squirrel girl with green bean ears?


Zundamon is indeed extremely cute and it's a bit of a mystery why there isn't loads and loads of art made each day. She does still seem to be increasing in polarity, though, so good times ahead for Zundamon fans.


I think a lot of dedicated cute artists are devoted to certain franchises

This is a thread for sharing general news about anime or video games or other entertainment that you don't feel like making a thread for.

I find myself not wanting to make a new thread for stuff and then I either forget about it or I put it in the blog thread as a last resort, which is quite awkward. Maybe other people feel that way, too. Well, here's an attempt to fix that.
This is not a containment area for such news, rather it's just a more centralized thread to put it when you don't want to create a new thread to share some info before moving on to something else.

Looks like they're re-releasing Rune Factory 3 on Switch and PC. The characters are absolutely amazing with their various quirks. If you never played it, it's really a treat to see their stories.
Anyway, I might have to actually buy a physical game again for the Collector's Edition just because I love RF3 so much. It brought me so much happiness back in the day, it's truly a great experience. Well, the dungeons and combat are pretty simple and it sucks how the game ends when you get married, but they might add some new content to very slightly remedy that part... maybe. If you played 4, then 3 is a step back in game mechanics, but the girls are definitely better.
Anyway, it's coming in September.


Dungeon Travelers 1, 2 and 2-2 are getting translated and coming to PC! Previously only the second one got a translation (and my physical copy is a prized possession), so this is pretty amazing.
The bad news is that it's not coming to Steam, but something called "Johren". It had shown up on the Steam DB, but then disappeared, so no one knows what happened there. It might be a censorship thing, but I don't think anyone actually knows.
There's multiple sites called Johren that have games so I have no idea which one is actually correct. I guess follow some links around and you'll find it.
Anyway, this summer!

What are your most precious belongings?
If I had to choose one I think I'd go with my pillow, I've had it for about fifteen years. It's basically a plain, thin, soft brown brick and I CANNOT sleep without it. Every time we moved and things got shuffled around I had to go get it again until it was established that it's mine, though by that point it's not like anyone else wanted it either with how hard it had become. Fluffy pillows just aren't my thing.

It all comes down to indoctrination, if you're self-aware enough you can revaluate everything and build your own identity.


File:PENUP_20230109_221851.PNG (117.19 KB,1080x1620)

It depends on the era you grew up in. With the internet and globalization, nowadays it's more about what language and power bloc you come from


On the contrary, I started to identify more and more with my country the older I became. I'm fully aware of the situation, and I think it's a good thing not in spite of it.


I think that identifying more with your country as you get older is probably actually a common thing. Especially considering that voting is usually done by older individuals.

My old forum haunt of choice. Hehehe. I was one of those people with thousands of posts.

Presumably some "off topic" subforum? Alas, some of those are doomed to enter such territory when given a chance. I never used the forum outside of topical things and never even had an account to comment.



It's not a website per se, but I found out today that Wiktionary has maps for dialectal vocab variations in Chinese and Finnish:

What does /qa/ think about the idea of hardcore MMOs? Having seen a bit about this in my Youtube recommends, it looks kinda fun and engaing. Classic wow is by no means the hardest, or even that challenging an MMO, but I think that just lends itself very nicely to a hardcore mode. It encourages a bit more social interaction during questing to not die trying to solo along with encouraging better communication during dungeons/raids since nobody wants to lose their character. Also I'm a bit of a fan of hardcore modes myself, so I was wondering if kissu might be interested in giving it a shot once the servers come out?

Yeah, that'd probably be a real pain to deal with if you get to higher levels. You'd want to constantly be playing together and a death would kind of break the rhythm of fun MMO adventuring.


Even still I'd want to try it out with /qa/ just to see how far we get.

Do you play PC games with keyboard + mouse or controller?
I got a PS4 controller recently and used it to play some PC games. While the controller has analog control and allows me to play games comfortably in the bed, aiming with thumbstick is unacceptable for me, and I feel less in control overall because often one button is bound to too many different actions and it's more difficult to hold multiple buttons at once which is easy on keyboard. The control layout is also limited to pre-defined settings compared to the complete freedom of keyboard key bindings.

File:[Serenae] Hirogaru Sky! Pr….jpg (340.38 KB,1920x1080)

I definitely prefer controller whenever possible. You just can't beat the comfort.
But, I have no problem using mouse and keyboard and for many things it's a hard requirement, like roguelikes or stuff like Terraria. You can try to play those with controller, and they even have console versions, but it doesn't feel right to me. Plus if there's anything multiplier then I want to be able to communicate (and hate mics) so keyboard shines there .
But, pic related happens to me if I spend a few days in a row playing a keyboard game. My fingers and wrist really don't like it since it's a position I don't normally have them in when typing


File:D_NQ_NP_2X_910287-MLA4627….webp (24.1 KB,511x346)

If the game was fundamentally designed for controllers, then a controller it is. Otherwise, KBM.
Haven't had any problems with my wrists ever since I got pic. I seriously believe everyone should have a set of these.


File:[SubsPlease] Megami no Caf….jpg (277.52 KB,1920x1080)

A set of what? I have no idea what that is


Oh, they are wrist pads/pillows/rests. A thingy that's softer than a table.

Quotes are actually irrelevant, the arrows on the left do the chart a disservice.
Framed in a different way, the structure is about whether a thread can "split". See pic, the color of a post/reply changes each time this happens. On the left are SE and Slack, which can only split once per main post to create a sub-thread, on the middle is Reddit, which can split with no limitations, and on the right is SpaceBattles, which cannot split.
Chatrooms have a special status where OPs don't exist, but we can easily treat the room itself as a single thread, it doesn't make a real difference.
That's a good one, I'll add it to my notes.


Small mistake here: red branches off of dark blue, not black.


Would you say drawthreads are participation-oriented? The amount of people creating stuff is relatively small, but requests are oriented towards neither funposting nor discussion, and the imagedumping aspect is just a consequence of the creation process.


I think participation threads are a subset of creation threads, but creation threads can still fall into the three given archetypes, albeit tending to have a lot of hybrid elements to them.

A thread where a drawfag pumps out a bunch of new art is an imagedump.
A thread where a template is posted and anons make variations is funposting.
A thread where people make a year-in-review collage is discussion.


I guess that's somewhat right, but you can have all 3 in one.

Anyone else been messing around with the stable diffusion algorithm or anything in a similar vein?
It's a bit hard to make it do exactly what you want but if you're extremely descriptive in the prompt or just use a couple words it gives some pretty good results. It seems to struggle a lot with appendages but faces come out surprisingly well most of the time.

Aside from having a 3070 i just followed this guide I found on /g/ https://rentry.org/voldy to get things setup and it was pretty painless.

There's been ways, but this one is a simple text prompt with no other work involved as you said. At 256x256 I couldn't make more than about 70 frames at once before running out of VRAM, but I didn't look at settings much. To me this stuff is only as interesting as it its ability to fill in the blanks, the more work I need to put into it the less interest I have because at that point someone should learn to draw or animate in my opinion


It's gotten very good at realistic image generation.



Looks like Ness


Ironically, it looks like it perfectly replicated the feeling of rage when you get pissed off that stuff isn't working
