Pssh. What a fool. He used "United" instead of "Union of".


Sounds like something spit out by a parody name generator.


Yeah, my brain.

I was trying to come up with the most generic nation's name without using words like "socialist" or making up a word or name like "Sterica" or whatever for a fictional nation and that's the best I could come up with.


Fair enough.
I think you were successful.

You doing some sort of project or just daydreaming in detail?

Share the 2D pics, videos, or GIFs you enjoyed in your recent fap sessions

I've jumped on the opportunity to make this iteration myself as I'd like to also use it as a thread to discuss the future of pornographic content on Wizchan. There's been a lot of debate over the years from both users and staff concerning just how appropriate porn is at all on a website for celibates. There's always been a big divide between pro and anti-hentai users and a some of you have even gone on to demand radical changes, threatening legal action of some sort. The "Ban 3DPD entirely poll" won by just one vote after all. I think everyone's opinions should be considered, but remember that this isn't a real democracy so even if 300 "unique" users vote to change the Wizchan logo to a giant dragon penis, it's not going to happen.

Happened to the fap thread too around the same time.


Yeah, a little over 6 years ago. It was opened by one of the aforementioned users identifiable by their distinct taste in fetish porn. He drove the fap thread to the bump limit and then made a new one with bara furry gape because he was upset that users in the previous thread were complaining about him posting sweaty zebra assholes. It was a single isolated instance by someone who would go on to be banned a dozen more times. It was the same guy who did the same to the crawl thread to post his Sonic erotica. Hardly an indicator of these thread being vulnerable to abuse given that it was one guy and swiftly rectified.


So we are moving the goal post from
>it didn't happen
>it happened once but that doesn't matter

The truth always matters.
It's about having facts straight.
Though I wonder why you are you are trying so hard to dismiss such events.
Is it because it doesn't fit a particular narrative you are trying to construct?
I wonder…


This is insane!!!

Did you make this? It's p cool.


No I first saw it over on 4chan's /his/ back in 2019 or so.


They made a rock opera out of Martin Luther, this is the life of a Monk in song



I never imagined the decision of Frederick III, Elector of Saxony to protect Luther, could give me such feels.



I was scrolling through /all/ and thought it was "Hitler" when it passed by.

There are about 70x as many posts on r9k than there are on Wizchan. Do people on r9k simply not know about Wizchan? Are they too built into the habit of using 4chan to make the switch?
And its not how old a board is, either. 7chan has existed since 2006 (I'm pretty sure), and it's /b/ board has only 815,000 posts, while 4chan's /s4s/ board, which has only existed since 2013, and has amassed 10,000,000 posts.
How has 4chan, the most poorly moderated, poorly designed imageboard (except maybe endchan) held onto that many users?

>even though 4chan bans people for mentioning altchans.

I have mentioned Wizardchan many times and I haven't been banned. Apparently if you just name them but you don't post the link you don't get into trouble.


I've always liked "Secret Area of VIP Quality". It's a textboard, not an imageboard. Always seems really comfy around there when I remember it exists.


Are you talking about the /VIP/ board? Used to be unlisted but now it's listed and it's not a textboard so IDK if it's what you're talking about. It is just as shit as the rest of the site.


That's not what I mean, no. Just google it sometime and you should see it. I find it strangely charming.

Do they know if there is a way to develop lucid dreaming or to remember your dreams more often?

Having a different world inside your mind every time you dream sounds interesting.

The only aspect of this process I figured out is related to regular dreaming. Sleeping on your back if you don't usually do so causes slightly lighter sleep that seems to increase the vivid quality. Going to sleep again multiple times right after waking up can blend dreams and daydreaming in a way you don't know is happening which adds a sense of control.

Sometimes, at random points of the day, memories of past dreams from any point in my life will pop up. Vague reconciliation of places, feelings, and people I've encountered in my sleep. Unsubstantial experiences, not worth more than a quick thought after I've just woken up from them, but still popping in to my imagination to this day.

Given this, I think all or most of our dreams are remembered quite vividly, but we just can't always recall these memories at will. Our brain orchestrated these experiences from scratch after all, so it's a given that they're down there in one form or another. When we remember things we've seen IRL while awake, we may actually just have a vague idea of what we saw, and then fill in the gaps with our imaginations. But with dreams, everything was drawn out frame by frame by us, for us, so to remember it is like remembering a piece of art you've made. You don't just remember the general contents of it, but the exact directions of the brushstrokes and the paints you've mixed.

>Do they know if there is a way to develop lucid dreaming
There are some proven scientific ways, and it all boils down to giving your brain what it needs to stay active during sleep, and nothing to focus attention on besides dreaming. Near hallucinogenic effects can be achieved simply by fasting entirely, drinking only water, while also exerting your body throughout the day. The absolute exhaustion puts in you a deep sleep, while having a totally empty digestive system puts it in to a stasis, meaning your brain doesn't have to put effort in to moving muscles and releasing excretions necessary to process food. The conversion of muscle tissue in to usable energy also releases neurostimulants in to the blood.

This method has been practiced for a thousand years by tribal Americans to give "spirit journeys". Out-of-body experiences with multiple perceivable consciousnesses. The neurostimulants mentioned above can be released by ingesting certain amino acids such as taurine, arginine, and glycine. Combined they make creatine which is a necessary building block for muscle development. When the muscles don't have enough nutrition to grow but are exerted anyway, this creatine has no protein to fuse so it floats away in the bloodstream and up to the brain, where it acts as a nootropic by strengthening sPost too long.

i tried this in 2016

i set a bunch of alarms. the trick is for the alarm to wake you from sleep, and be in a state of semisleep, and to remain mentally awake as your body returns to sleep

it is simple enough, but still hard. also once you are lucid dreaming, and you realize you're lucid dreaming, it's very easy to get overexcited and awaken fully

some of my noteworthy memories about lucid dreaming were taking photos of a village in a valley, exploring shrine/temple grounds on a shallow lakebed, opening a door without getting out of the way and having the door go through me, light switches not working, text on paper and books and so on being nonsense fake letters and changing everytime i turn around, and most disappointingly not being able to fly or do anything crazy like noclipping through the dream

if you're doing this, you need an alarm that turns itself off. you can also just play like a song that is silent but after 2 hours or so it has a beeping tone or whatever for a moment, that also works. there is a specific time that works best to wake up after sleeping, i forgot when it is

it is really a matter of just having your sleep interrupted, and then retaining consciousness as your body goes to sleep

there were other methods like constant awareness and waking up within the dream, not in real life, and so on, but i had no luck with those


So what happens when you start doing dream checks but you don't become lucid?
I gave up on it because I would do various reality checks: count fingers on hand, look at clocks, consistency of lines of texts but all that would happen is my subconscious would go "huh that's strange" and move on.


sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't

Thumbnails on /lounge/ all got deleted. It's anyone's guess how, but I don't know of a script to reprocess images so I'll be manually rebuilding (most of) them (soon).

you can ask chatgpt to write this bash or python script for you


Images are fixed. Video thumbnails will come when I feel like it.

>How did they all get deleted?
I deleted the active thumbnails folder instead of the temp/redundant thumbnails folder when freeing up space through an FTP client. >>307494's guess was right.

No wizard should allow himself to be bested by a robot. I used a GUI batch editor for Gimp


>I deleted the active thumbnails folder instead of the temp/redundant thumbnails folder when freeing up space through an FTP client.
>I deleted the active thumbnails folder instead of the temp/redundant thumbnails folder when freeing up space through an FTP client.
I see, simple enough mistake to make.
Glad it was able to be more or less fixed.
Hell, I didn't even notice the problem because you were so on top of it.


did you just have to resize the full size images, and then rename them, and then put in the thumbnail folder


Yeah, just download the whole /src/ folder, run it through the batch resizer and compressor, saving as the same filenames and format, then reimport in to the /thumb/ folder. No renaming necessary because thumbs and images share the same timestamp filename.

General Question: does just reading 4chan for longer than 10-15 minutes make anyone feel awful and almost as if placed into a trance state? I can browse other sites for long periods of time without any ill effects, but if I stay too long on 4chan I begin to feel decidedly sick. Why does this happen?

I think the internet causes a person's problem-solving abilities to atrophy. It becomes impossible to envision what other things you could be doing with your time. It erodes the imagination completely.


thats true my first instinct at any obstacle is to make a thread about it since there are 0 barriers and consequences unlike on forums where you would get banned if you made too many threads


4chan died a long time ago. It's being kept artificially alive.


isnt 4chan run by google?


I sadly am this way aswell. My car broke down a few days ago, and I made a thread about it on 4ch's /o/. No help. I called my father and he told me to jumpstart it, and told me how to.

I hope nobody artificially engages with this thread to make it hit the bump limit so the large files in it can be deleted without anyone caring


i will do just that. now that you mention it.
