There was this drama on Discord which said a lot about the wizchan administation. Here is copy paste:
I am leaving now. But before I go I feel it is my moral duty as a community moderator to highlight the facts that bring me to my departure. Though I have become dissillusioned with the community I will do this one last service before taking my leave. I have long idealised wizardry and saw wizchan as a place of people who I can I relate to on an intimate level, but recent months have shown me that the community is a sickening sham which is not what it is purported to be.
Our old member Torn Herb is an actual Wizchan moderator who has previously filled me in on certain going-ons. I have detailed these shennanigans in the past, y'know the whole stuff about the wizchan admin and mods being part of a gayclique that keeps /b/ and the fap thread up as their own personal playthings to erotic roleplay with eachother and take part in various other homoertoic and garbage posting. Torn isn't part of this group but he allows these unwizardly freaks to make a mockery of the community by not fighting against them.
Now, Torn forms the real crux of my issue . Well, that's not quite fair to say. Problems don't become permeate issues from the top down. They work bottom up from the users themselves. But to start with Torn, to describe his character without much exaggeration, he is basically a normie. I believe I am the only person who has batted an eyelid when he has talked publically about having female friends in real life, rejecting relationship proposals from numerous succubi because of a chastity ring (none of the low social value ailments that supposedly characterise wizards are on obstacle here (if volcel was really all that drew us together we wouldn't even care for normie activity in the slightest)), drinking at bars with friends (including another wizchan moderator on an occasion), regularly socialising with drug buddies, stating that it's perfectly fine and up to truwiz standards for “wizards” to want to pursue girlfriends or have female friends, and attempting to argue the definition of wizardry out to be merely concerning virginity (leave an in and out normie to argue this). This is the type of person that moderates wizchan.
The last issue of course is just an invitation to allow in crabs, other normies of his ilk, and various other undesirable freaks. And this is exactly what happened.
In his wizchan Steamgroup, whose members overlap with ours, he has allowed back in two particular people, reticent and Soulkius, whom if anyone has forgotten destroyed the old Discord by protecting a sexhaver, have a female(s)? friend who they are rather close to. I've heard they argue it's just a fellow guild member who chances to be female but that is outright deception. They have personally divulged to me that they met and chat on quite close terms with no intermediary guild between them.
Kaname, who I'm sure most of you well know, was also personally invited back by Torn even though he is infamously crab, consistently mocks virgins, and has admitted in private to Torn of having a homosexual internet relationship with a person who is claimed to also be a previous wizchan moderator (which isn't shocking given the first set of facts I presented regarding the administration). We also have chatlogs from this person saying that Kaname admitted to not being a virgin.
Now most of this information so far has been public knowledge. But not only does most of it appear to not bother people, but some of you have even defended it. The great wizardry standards, if they ever did exist, have degenerated into garbage.
I could get into more about how they Steamgroup ever so “wizardly” engages in voice chat, but I know I'm talking to a crowd now who have little care in a community for the truly socially stunted and asocial. An r9k-4chan tier spinoff if the Steamgroup quality is anything to go by. None of this feels like the wizchan I once thought I was in. I keep standards higher but I don't want to do it anymore for a community that I cannot relate to, and not only does not appeciate the higher standard, but defends and takes joy in the most unwizardly of “wizard” environments. That says enough right there of the people here.
I can only hope the posters and lurkers of wizchan itself are of a more relatable breed. Perhaps Discord and Steam do just filter in the most normie of the lot. But I find it difficult to believe that it is truly much better. I am done with the wizchan community. The issues are so pervassive that I feel like the outsider here.
I've greatly enjoyed some of your company, you aren't all undesirable or misfit, but now I bid you all adieu.
Yeah, discord and steam are full of failed norms and crabs hungry for female attention. This is common knowledge.
Discord and steam threads are protected by mods and they refuse to delete them. This is also common knowledge.
Put two and two together and you'll find that, surprise surprise, mods are crabs that think that wizardry is just a funny meme.
If you could, please keep your off-site drama out of here and leave it where it started. The wizchan staff have nothing to do with any off-site chat rooms, by participating in them you are opening yourself up to potential communication with either people that just don't belong here or people who used to post here but are now banned for things ranging from extreme shitposting/undermining of moderation to just plain and simple rule 1 violations. Many of these ban evaders have to be banned daily to keep them away because they just don't want to leave, and I have no doubts that these same people are joining your chat rooms as well. If you want a place that is vigorously tracking and banning people that don't belong, as per the rules, then you will want to post here, on wizchan, the site itself; any other place you will get no guarantee that who you are talking to is an honest wizard or apprentice and I'd suggest that you treat your experiences in such places with a heavy helping of scrutiny.
