No, seriously. Why are you mods so afraid to make public your actions in regard to moderation? If you're really moderating fairly a public log of your actions would only serve to increase trust. As it stands you can do pretty much anything and not get into any trouble for it.

Remember to block the wizchan cookies and disable to java script. Use vpn if you have the money for vpn. Don't post any personal information on wizchan if you care about your privacy. Leaving false information about yourself is also a good idea.

please add a global rule that forbids racism in wizchan, as wizards can be of all races.

Wizchan 2019

What would you say is the current percentage of legit/real apprentices and wizards on Wizchan?

When it comes to fake apprentices/wizards, the site's userbase was probably never perfect, not even on wizardchan's earliest days, with that said, I can only assume it has gotten worse since the 2016 election (due to all the attention imageboards got from the media during that time), the pewdiepie thing and it probably got even worse with crabs becoming mainstream due to the Toronto attack early last year.

Here are the types of non-apprentices/wizards who are almost definitely posting in this place right now:

-16 to 21 years old late bloomers who'll end up getting laid sooner or later (it's not even that rare or unusual to be a male virgin at 19 or 20 nowadays. IMHO, you should only be considered an apprentice once you hit at least 21).

-"Depressed" and "lonely" normies: Basically "nerdy" normans who don't get sex very often but have gotten at least 1 or 2 gfs, has a few nerdy friends to hang out with, but still feels "depressed" "lonely" and a "loser" because he doesn't get laid as often and isn't as social as the other non-nerd normalfaggots.

-crab Normies: Regular normals with friends and a job who remained virgins until later in their lives either because they're unnatractive or won't settle for a succubus bellow 7/10.

-4chad norms LARPing as one of us

-Succubi

-Non-virgin crabs: Normies who've had sex a few times in the past but are "depressed" and "feel like virgins" because it's been a long time since the last time they were able to fuck a succubus (in some cases many months, in other cases, years)

-Non-virgin volcels: Celibate MGTOWs basically.

Is it just me who gets a bit anxious thinking about this sort of stuff while browsing the site?

Maybe I'm worrying too much and it hasn't gotten this bad, but I can't help but feel like these fakes make up at least half of the current userbase.

So again, what would you say is the percentage of remaining real apprentices and wizards on this site in 2019?

And by "real" I mean: male, at least 20 years old, virgin, volcel (can include former crabs who called it quits years ago), hasn't talked/met with a friend in at least 3 years, doesn't leave the house very often (unless he has to wageslave, visit relatives, go to the hospital, buy groceries, take out the trash, take care of something for an elder relative, that kind of stuff).

(I know some of this is not on the rules/FAQ of the site, this definition of apprentice/wizard is for this thread only).

Would you say the percentage is below 30%?

Wizardchan - Brought to you by the United States of America

Since we lost the RC Cola sponsorship, can we try the United States Government?
Their disability benefits sure are helpful to lots of wizards, I think it's time we make it official.

Maybe someone other nations would be interested in this lucrative sponsorship as well, and we can have them bid against each other for the contract.

Mod,fuck you

So I got banned for two hours for sarcastically saying "nice legs" to a retard posting 3d succubi he found from 4chan despite me not breaking a rule and the 3d picture of succubus still up and I also got banned for like two days because I was telling the guy in /dep/ that he won't killhimself, he would rather whine about edgy shit and he didn't read cioran despite him being a low iq philosopher. This was somehow a rulebreak too because I was rude to a mod who didn't post with his tag on.


Well fuck you, glad your suicidal, you had it coming afterall

Is the 'normshield' still up? ie. the thing that redirects to Reddit or wherever when someone is linked here from another site.

If not then it should be redeployed given recent events on other imageboards.

state of wizchan 2019. r9k refugees are openly revealing their identity. Even more funny things about this thread is that majority of responses to this post were supportive.
R: 38 / I: 6

Remove politics threads and political discussion.

Permission to discuss politics on this site was always contingent upon that discussion following certain standards, especially since the first ruleset banned it.
It was generally understood that lifting that ban required adherence to the rule that replaced it, that "content should invite discussion, not start or feed a personal echo chamber."
Neither the content in politics threads nor the people those threads have attracted have met that standard, and even though politics thread was never good, it has still managed to decline.
I regret that I ever defended the politics thread's right to exist. I regret sinking hours into /meta/ saying that banning the politics threads wasn't the right way to go. Everyone else was right. I'm sorry.

>KV: short for kissless virgin, someone who has never kissed a gi rl

Despite word filter it is written as gi rl and not succubus. It gives a feeling that someone kissing grown succubi, boys, men and other 3d would still be KV. No additional distinction and only smooches from fucked up relatives wouldn't make someone a KV according to the current definition. Should be changed.
R: 15 / I: 2
Delete /b/ which is a constantly growing cancer in this site. /b/ will probably be the starting point for the next drama that will finially destroy this chan. Killing b would bore nearly all the shitposters and freaks.
R: 33 / I: 3

Mods deleted a fun thread on /b/

They deleted my thread about nogizaka 46 where I asked what you guys thought was the best entrance.
It didn't break any rule and I didn't try to break any rule either. I just wanted to know your opinion on something that I found quite amusing.
I'm feeling really bad and this just made me feel worse because I wanted to have some innocent fun. Unlike many of the gays who roleplay and post gay and weird porn.
That's all. Please tell me what is wrong with a thread like that? What type of rule did I break? I know some idiots posted something about wanting to fuck a certain succubus but you deleted it so I thought my thread was okay. You deleted a post that broke a rule and left my thread for hours. So what happened that made you delete my thread?
R: 9 / I: 0

Are AMA threads allowed?

Because I was tempted to do some in topics that I know and wanted to share my knowledge and experience (anonimously of course, I mean according to the rules) about, but I don't know if this type of thread conflicts with any rule by itself

Why do mods refuse to permaban anyone except for straight-out admitting they're a succubus or a nonvirgin? There's a person on /b/ and /lounge/ who constantly posts about wanting to have sex and romantic relationships and yet he only gets warned when he does so over and over. I just reported another one of his posts, will he get permabanned for it? Will he even get banned at all? Why not?
R: 33 / I: 9

cra/b/ is leaking

Well, looks like we're being invaded. Again. Summer is definitely a huge factor, but there might be something else at play. Maybe some down-syndrome wiz decided to advertise wizchan on r9k, maybe some crab-wiz decided it was a good idea to """diversify""" the userbase with his crabfriends, I don't know for sure.
Something peculiar I noticed is that /b/ is leaking. Hard. And since /b/ is the closest thing to a regular "4chan experience" we have, outsiders feel right at home rolling in the pigshit that is /b/, acquainting themselves with /b/ memes, """wiz-culture""" and lexicon. In the past, when someone on listed boards would use the terms used on /b/, I would think: "Ha, very funny fellow wiz, only an experienced wizard would know that meme, good one". But now when it's used, I have my doubts. Is that a fag from /b/ who forgot his place? Is that an outsider who read 2 threads on /b/ and now uses the memes without knowing their context? It's a mystery. More often than not it's the latter, because an experienced wiz knows that for every meme there is time and place, while an outsider uses a meme whenever he feels is right. So now we have too much /b/-tier replies on listed boards.
Some examples in no particular order:
>>>/dep/201828
Here, a poster mentions a "wizard" with a son. That happens from time to time, maybe an apprentice hasn't been here for too long and has a slip of the tongue. But the true horror is the replies.
>>>/dep/201829
Alright, one /b/-tier reply, that's the allowed amount in response to a funny sentence. Haha, wizardly unvirgin father, lmfao.
>>>/dep/201830
Ehhh, not a fitting reply but I'll let it slide.
>>>/dep/204420
That's where it gets suspicious. Lainposter is a prominent avatarfag(that is, an avatarfag that isn't being banned by mods).
>>>/dep/204421
>>>/dep/204424
>>>/dep/204473
>>>/dep/204493
…Aaand it's starting to look like a fucking /b/ thread. The mention of wizdads, wizmoms and a picture of a fucking 3d succubus. Yep, it's summer alright.
Moving on.
>>>/games/46287
An unfunny use of a "wiz" prefix. Wizcops might sound funny on /b/, but on /games/ it's just retarded.
>>>/dep/204501
>>>/dep/204503
A necroposter. An obvious crab with misogyny being the most important point in his post. Not a single hint of intelligence or desire for civilized discussion. In other words, an outsider.
>>>/dep/204506
And he tries to deflect with a weak attempt to be "one of the wizards". Yes, it might be just an actual wizard acting coy, but considering his previous posts I highly doubt it.
>>>/dep/204521
This might not look like much, but I'm pretty sure it's the same guy. Necroposting on the same day. Pretty sure he was looking through the catalogue just to find some thread where he can share his worthless crab thoughts. Again, it might be just a coincidence and it's actually a wizard but I don't think so.
>>>/lounge/222457
This whole thread. It's been moved to /b/ but it should've been just deleted.
I could also show some examples from /b/ or the crawl threads but there's too much crab garbage for me to sort through.

hello wiz mods. for years i have watched over u. waiting within the abyss. there i have feasted upon butthurt and grown strong and restless. my slap hands honed by years of ABUSE have become ANGRY. FURIOUS as the butthurt that festers within them. FURIOUS as every reported post, every bait thread, every meta post ignored. i am the pole of the fisherman and the hand that wields it. i am the suffering of a wiz on a rainy day and the drops of blood running from his dreary eyes.

the hand that wrote this thread now masturbates to the memory of it. my reach extends beyond the abyss. it infects the minds of everyone who browses here. it lives on in the culture of this site. half of the memes on this website were engineered by me. even if you ban me, you wont be able to destroy all my horcroxes for they have become you. i have infiltrated and turned you against each other. all for the holy HURT!!!!! yes, yes, let it blossom!!! let all ye merry burgers see to it and weep! for its true - its all been true, what you've been thinking! all of it and more were planned by me from the start!!!

the most hilarious part is that some of the mods realized what I was up to and gave me the green light anyway. keep doing what you're doing! the hurt is all that matters! to create the hurt. to spread the hurt. to keep it going. we are one now. I have won now. welcome to hell

please explain to me why i cant speak about veganism in this website? i just want to peacefully talk about this subject, about the ethics of eating meat, and about why eating vegetables is superior to eating meat

why is talking about eating vegetables a thought crime in this website? ive had 2 threads previously on /lounge/ and a lot of people enjoyed speaking in them, and there was a wide range of responses. this is a popular topic that people are interested in

please allow me to host vegan threads on /lounge/ or on /wiz/, im just interested in this topic, and so are many other people. its SUCH flagrant power abuse to silence vegans on the basis that you cant argue with them

how is my thread about veganism low quality, inflammatory or off topic?

Wizchan is dying

Post rates have been in constant decline for years and I think that they are now entering a critically dangerous level where people stop coming to the site because no one posts which furthers slows things down, a sort of death spiral. Something must be done to make people post more, to make less people leave and to make more people join, or else we'll end 2019 with a post rate in the lower double digits or worse. How can we do that while respecting what wizchan stands for? I don't want to see this place die, it's the only imageboard where I can be at ease.

Let's save wizchan, please.

R: 93 / I: 6
Apparently, the practice of calling involuntary celibates "crabs" originals on a subreddit called r/crabtears dedicated to making fun of virgins. It is used primarily by succubi and normalfaggots, and it describes itself as the following:

"crabTears is a part-mocking, part-watchdog subreddit for posting screenshots of hateful, misogynist, racist, violent, and often bizarre content created by "crabs" (hateful involuntary celibates). We do not condone blanket hatred of virgins or the romantically unsuccessful, only those who self-identify as "crab". crabs blame succubi, their genes, attractive men, and society at large for their inability to get dates or sex. Occasional meta/discussion and advice-seeking posts are also welcome."

Note that this makes no mention of voluntary celibacy. This is because normalfaggots such as the people who frequent this subreddit do not believe that such a thing exists. According to them (as evidenced in the previous paragraph), if you are 'hateful' or otherwise offensive, you are called a crab.
Why is has the administrator of wizchan has taken it upon himself to force an outsider, wizard-hostile meme onto this website? How did the administrator even know about this meme? Does he frequent this anti-virgin subreddit?

More evidence:
https://www.reddit.com/r/crabTears/search?q=crab&restrict_sr=1
(you'll need to fix the link because of the wordfilter)

inb4 this is deleted for being off-topic or something, the crab wordfilter and the motives for implementing it is a perfectly valid subject for meta discussion.

Banner contest

>>>/lounge/221381
inspired from ^this thread, but I thought it'd be more appropriate as a thread here


I'd like to see a whole completely new set of banners from the ones that were submitted more recently in the meta thread, I believe there were a few new banners added semi-recently(?), but still a lot of the current ones are old and outnumber newer ones, leaving newer ones just as rare sights to see.

I've got an idea (and hopefully you've got input) where we could run a fun community event to have our dedicated wizzies and passionate users of wizchan draw/paint up new banners on a set month every year as a sort of artsy-competition(the competition itself would last the entire month, banners would be chosen at end of month), then for the chosen banners we'll just use them exclusively until the next year's contest. Old banner or banner contest threads could just be locked and archived, so your art wouldn't be lost, but stored in a sort of wizard-history museum through the years(possibility for a new additional page link in the top bar in which we could go to and then click through different year's links to see banners from each year?). And so this was just a little thought from me to have a some fun with the wizzies here, I think it would really cool to see the new creative things that wizzies could come up with every year, and, if anything, it would be something to look forward to, and something to do for you bored wizards out there.
R: 85 / I: 15
Why aren't wizards allowed to feel ronery anymore? It was one of the core topics of discussion that united the original groups that would become known as "wizards". I'm genuinely curious, because it seems this site is really just full of chads bullying losers for being sad anyway so what's the goddamn difference? Why should I come to a site and get bullied by "superior wizards" as opposed to getting bullied by "superior normalfags"? Being a wizard isn't a bad thing by any stretch, but there also by definition cannot be a caste system for wizards. There is no such thing as being more or less wizardly, you are either a wizard or you're not. Doesn't matter if you still wish being around other people was something that made you happy or not, or if you live in a mud cave in the Appalachians or if you're a financially successful early retired bitcoin billionaire who dresses like Patrick Bateman, were all virgins the same and that's what fucking matters, isn't it? Man, I bet you guys would lobby to ban the OG wizards on sight if they ever showed up for talking about how they wanted to fuck their waifus.

Stop hiding Wizchan. Kill Robots.txt

I think the whole super sekrit Wizchan hidden from google, robots.txt was a mistake. First of all the bad people already know about us. 4chan, 8chan, Buzzfeed, Dramatica, all the press we got from Gamergate, fucking PewdiePie the top youtuber in the world, wikipedia etc etc etc.

The people we are keeping out, are those who google Wizardly type topics. They are more asocial and don't participate in shitty online communities that tell them about Wizchan from word of mouth. Wizchan has become like a drug, and only those socially apt to meet a drug dealer can find it.

Plus most of you, probably came from sites you're not proud of. You were immigrants once yourself. But once you got in, you burned the bridge and locked the door behind you, threw down the ladder. So someone else in your exact position, today can't get in.

Plus being able to search posts on Google would be useful for us already here. And Archive.org? How cool is it to look at old Wizardchan.org posts from 2012-2014? Now future generations will be denied that privilege.

Female Wizards?

Why this community doesn't recognise virgin females capable of having magical powers?

It used to have a lore wiki entry as well now the only place I can find a mention of this is in the wizard handbook.

>Finally, a witch is a female virgin who is at least 30 years old. She is the female counterpart of a wizard. In contrast to wizards, witches are extremely rare, but can be as formidable in magical power as wizards. Similarly, witchhood is the status held by witches who can control magic. In modern times, wizards view witchhood as long extinct.

Can moderation please explain to me why I was banned yesterday? All I did was make a post criticizing the website and when it got deleted in the crawl thread I made one on the appropriate board which resulted in my post and an entire thread getting nuked as well. When I checked the reasons for both of my bans it was because of "ban evasion" and I've been banned permanently. I find it strange how two posts about criticizing moderation results in a permanent ban; I want an explanation for this decision. Are we no longer allowed to say anything bad about who's running this website? Given the allegations others have made against the moderation, outright censoring anyone who doesn't pretend all is well is pretty suspicious. Especially after you all vehemently swear that nothing's going on behind the scenes.

Issues with the RPGnight theme

These are only true for my machine as far as I can tell.

a) Highlighting and copying words from posts is impossible.
Big issue in my opinion, but it might have to do with the font used.
b) On the front page often when hovering a post, the post below is highlit as well, which can be confusing as to the content of the post as the white-text board name just kind of blends into the background.

Wizchan mods

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.

R: 21 / I: 3

Let's have a thread on dep for the virgins who don't wanna become or be wizards

I want one thread for these people BECAUSE I think it'd be good for wizchan to have one thread exclusively for the use of these individuals who wish they could post their real thoughts without the trouble of being banned SINCE that'd show us that there are people who suffer and are unhappy due to the fact that they're alone and feel unloved right now.
In this thread, posters who wish to have a different life, one where romance, sex, or friendship had a chance to appear, would be able to post.
To have only one thread reserved for those posters who we know exist among us will do wonders to this site, as it'd help set other anonymages' fears aside, clearing up their minds and showing them if the path of wizardry is the right path for them.

Rule 2 on that thread will be changed for that thread to work and it'll read as

'Do not state or suggest that you had have sexual or romantic experiences.'


Make it possible at least for a short period, to see how it goes.

friendshit and conflicting guidelines

for a long time this clause of the rules section has irked me:
>social activity: An activity that at its core involves socializing, like going to a bar, party or club. This includes things done together with friends, like visiting a cinema. This, however, does not include simply having friends, or just making contact with another person in real life (e.g. a cashier or therapist).

this bugs me because "having friends" implies to some extent "doing things with friends" which is defined above as social activity, which goes against rule 3:
>Do not post about voluntary real life social activities (e.g. going to a bar or party).

encouraging or promoting social relationships/friendship should be seen as going against the spirit of the site, and can be viewed as contempt for the reclusive lifestyle of rule 4:
>Do not disparage or show contempt for the celibate, NEET, or reclusive lifestyles.


at the very least, discussing friendship on /wiz/, a board for the wizard lifestyle, should be discouraged, or else we get these kind of posts
>>>/wiz/153561
>>>/wiz/154532
>>>/wiz/154346
>>>/wiz/150538
>>>/wiz/150139

>>>/wiz/149053
>>>/wiz/149036
>>>/wiz/148813
>>>/wiz/148755
>>>/wiz/145485

to lend some additional merit to this stance of "no friends allowed", we can consult https://wizchan.org/test.php and fill in the answers as follows:
>1. male
>2. no
>3. no
>4. no
>5. yes or no
>6. yes (real life friends)
>7. yes (online friends)
>8. yes or no
>9. no
10. no
11. any answer
you will greeted with ==Result: You don't belong here. Your home is in other lands.== specifically for this set of answers, the test fails on "Do you have any real life friends? Yes"
this all indicates discussing friendship, or even having friends, is not wizardly.

there are also some differences between the faq and rules, specifically for /wiz/:
>(from faq) /wiz/ - General discussion that does not fit anywhere else.
>(from rules) /wiz/ - Posts should relate to wizards or the wizard lifestyle and aim to promote interesting discussion or provide some value.

the above faq guideline for /wiz/ also conflicts with the board rule supplied for /lounge/:
>(from faq) /lounge/ - Any topic that does not belong in any other specific board goes here.

the "What are the different boards on this site for?" section of the faq is also outdated and missing some of the newer boards entries.

Failed normalfags

I think it's time we finally had a frank discussion about the greatest contributors to the toxic attitude here: failed normies.

Now first, let me explain a little what I consider a failed normalfag to be. Essentially, a failed normie is someone who lives his life much the same as other wizards, as an outcast, a neet, a loser basically, but unlike wizards, they still buy into the normalfag system and desperately try to define themselves and their own pride and identity through conventional normalfag means. Most of them I believe have authoritarian personality disorder so I will copy the wikipedia definition here as it provides great insight into the psychological mechanisms at play here.

>Adorno et al. (1950) viewed the authoritarian personality as having a strict superego that controls a weak ego unable to cope with strong id impulses. The resulting intrapsychic conflicts cause personal insecurities, resulting in that person's superego to adhere to externally imposed conventional norms (conventionalism), and to the authorities who impose these norms (authoritarian submission). The ego-defense mechanism of projection occurs as indicated when that person avoids self-reference of the anxiety-producing id impulse, by displaying them onto "inferior" minority groups in the given culture (projectivity), with associated beliefs that are highly evaluative (power and toughness), and rigid (stereotypy). Additionally, there is a cynical view of humanity and a need for power and toughness resulting from the anxieties produced by perceived lapses in society's conventional norms (destructiveness and cynicism). Other characteristics of this personality type are a general tendency to focus upon those who violate conventional values and act harshly towards them (authoritarian aggression), a general opposition to subjective or imaginative tendencies (anti-intraception), a tendency to believe in mystic determination (superstition), and finally, an exaggerated concern with promiscuity.


>In regards to child development, the formation of the authoritarian type occurs within the first few years of the person's life, strongly shaped by the parents and family structure. "Hierarchical, authoritarian, exploitative" parent-child relationships may result in this personality type (Adorno et al., 1950, pp. 482–484). Parents who have a need for domination, and who dominate and threaten the child harshly, and demand obedience to conventional behaviors with threats, foster the characteristics of this personality. In addition, the parents have a preoccupation with social status, and communicate this to the child in terms of rigid and externalized rules. The child then suffers from suppressed feelings of resentment and aggression towards the parents, who are instead, idealized with reverence.


>Alfred Adler provided another perspective, linking the "will to power over others" as a central neurotic trait, usually emerging as aggressive over-compensation for felt and dreaded feelings of inferiority and insignificance. According to this view, the authoritarian's need to maintain control and prove superiority over others is rooted in a worldview populated by enemies and empty of equality, empathy, and mutual benefit.


This means basically they spend all day shitting on people whom they view as lower on the ladder than they are rather than questioning the entire hierarchy. They are in a state of psychological denial and projection about their own failures and this makes them do nothing but belittle others constantly. I wish they would just fuck off already.

Wizchan partnerships

Hello Wizards,

In order to increase the userbase, I've decided to join forces with other sites to foster an exchange of users. I've been in talks with another admin, and I'm proud to announce that we've just entered a partnership with crystal.cafe! Therefore, the following changes will take place:

-Witches will be allowed on wizchan
-We'll add links to their imageboard
-A new /witch/ board to go together with /wiz/
-Female moderators to add diversity to the staff

On top of that, in order to make wizchan a welcoming place for witches, there will be a new rule to stop abuse towards them, akin to rule 4.

That's all for now. I'll announce it here as we make new partnerships, there are some big ones planned. Stay tuned!

Moddesses,

Mods, stop deleting a banning me for what you think is shit posting. It's only shitposting because you call it shitposting. Are long post's with zero credibility and wrong facts on it shitposting? Is using curse words shitposting? Is being rude shitposting? Is posting a post that might insight a rude response a shit post? Is asking for proofs shitposting because the phrase is from /b/?

There's so much more you could do than being huge faggots. At the very least you should be accountable to the bans you give.


Also I should be able to predetermined post and the usual determinist post that comes time to time. I don't see why saying "predetermined to reply" on a whiny post about "I'm not accountable to anything from my decision" a shitpost. Asking for proofs for claims isn't also shitposting.

Samefag proceeds with toxic shitposting

There's clearly one specific guy that keeps posting in the same passive-aggresive way of shitposting and generally displays toxicity toward other posts and users.

Since this is a website with a low usercount it seems clear that it is the same guy most of the time, it's the same writing style and he's saging most of the time, sometimes he even samefags and replied to his own posts as if he were another person.

Noticed this on /dep/ firdt but he seems to be on the other boards as well. Make an IP check to compare, it's probably the same guy who accused someone about datamining in that other threads yesterday.

Bux and other boards proposals

I would be interested in having a board dedicated to the discussion of how to attain money (welfare, disability, medical funding, education funding, transportation, etc.) because it is an all-encompassing sort of idea which sort of pertains to all the boards. Discussion of it can be hard to keep tabs on when lost in the other topics on those boards.

I would like to know how open wizchan.org management would be to opening a bux board, or possibly other boards if there were good proposals made for them.

reviewing warnings and blocks

Voluntary vs. Involuntary Celibacy

I have been banned yesterday. Forever. For saying that I got a date. Pause there for a second. If you got angry and already are hoovering over the report option - read on. Not only that, I also was asked to go have a coffee or something by a succubus once. Imagine that!

Now - neither have I ever been on a date with a succubus, nor did I go to have a coffee with the one that asked me out. I have voluntarily decided to not participate in both of these actions. Now think about it for a second - had you had these chances . would you do the same? Certainly, right? You are a true wizard afterall! Just like I did. So what terrible thing did I actually do that deserved a banM

Explain to me who reported my post and who after reviewing the comment banned me? It is clear - jealous crabs. One who managed to infiltrate into the mod ranks. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't feel hatred towards my fellow crab wizards, it's more of a gap of understanding. I don't fully comprehend their motivations. I'm attaching the post I got banned for, which is clearly pro-celibacy and pro-wizardhood.

My appeal was the following:
"I said that got a date, I never went on it or had sex you freaking brainiac. Mods stop abusing your powers, I didn't break the rules. It's like getting banned for getting a fucking invitation, but never actually participating. Literally read the rest of the message.
This legitimately seems like a crab's rage and jealousy. I'm a volunatry celibate, I VOLUNTARILY did not go to a date I could have went on. I'm a virgin by my own will. Did the mod ban me out of seething rage at how someone could get something he cannot and cannot tolerate the fact that actual volcels exist? Seriously fuck, off, if you don't unban me, at at least I can leave knowing that wizchan has been so corrupted with the crab menace in its mod ranks that I'm not even going to be upset about being permabanned." end of quote.

Maybe I'm being unfair, maybe it wasn't the case, maybe it was just the cause of a lazy mod, who assumed more than he should have and just didn't read or pay attention to the rest of my message. Either way, it's irrelevant now.

However - the point of this thread is to clear one thing - democratically. I want you - yes you, dear wizchan users to tell me whether I'm the minority or a majority. I want to know where your stances are. As I was of the opinion that wizchan seeks to distance itself from the crab community and is trying to instead become a place for volcels to call home. But maybe I was of the wrong opinion, that's why I made this poll, where you can tell me which site you sympathize with, if with any.
http://www.strawpoll.me/17467963

In case of of "neither" option emerging as victorious, I believe mods should retain the status quo in all matters, as it has been up to now, but refrain from banning posters from vocally defending one stance in opposition to the other as was in my case. Both should be free to speak up and debate openly.

If one of the polar options wins, I strongly believe that the will of the majority should be respected by the mods and the rules should be changed to see the will of majority become law.

PS: Additional matter - considering that the mod that banned me forever was wrong in handling out such a permanent punishment and I was pardoned afterwards, isn't this a testament to the obvious bias on the mods' side? It resembles something akin to a tribal hierarchy, where the admin is the top dog that can overwrite the decisions of his underling semi-autonomous vassals. All of whom possess basically unlimited tyrannical powers over the posters on this site. I would vehemently argue that this structure that we inherited from 4chan and other imageboards is a flawed one and should be modified. As we are all wizards and comrades here, I am of the conviction that the /mod/ hidden board should be visible to all (only mods retain the ability to post there however) and we, the people of wizchan, should be able to see and offer our input on the internal administration and decision making of the ruling elite, be it here on /meta/ or a dedicated thread. As such, I created another poll to see where the stances of wizards lay, do you believe in a transparent site where laymen users' opinions and rights should not be infringed upon? If you do, then vote Aye, if you are content with the current way things are managed and wish to retain the status quo, vote Nay:
http://www.strawpoll.me/17468021

Again, in either case, I believe the outcomes should be respected or be again tested by an official referendum by the admin, as was done in the past, regarding for example the display of 3D pornography.

That's all, thank you anyone who has read this plea and have good day.

What do you think of automatically switching "Anonymage" to "Anony-sage" when someone uses sage?

The other idea is to implement an "hide-counter", only visible to staff and OP, which displays how many people are hiding your retarded thread. And, after a certain amount of hidden threads you get banhammered by moddessess and whole whole post history deleted.

Last one regarding moddesses. Can you please make a sticky thread here in /meta/ which keeps us updated about each moddess period? By doing this everybody will know when moddesses are having their menstruations and therefore can choose to avoid posting and getting b&

Thank you mods

Hey mods, I wanted to personally thank you for unbanning me and showing compassion to me. I wanted to thank you for that.

These last months, wizardchan has been very important to me. I feel at home here, and this might sound ridiculous, but I feel that wizards are my fellow brothers, even if the feeling isn't reciprocal.

I was expecting rejection for sharing my genuine feelings and situations, but other wizarcs have actually empathized with me. Thank you for that mods, this shit is more important to me than any shrink psychotherapy. I feel at home here.

slang + vocabulary refresher needed

Sometimes when I spend months on TV/vidya I grow out of touch with the language of our communities. Regarding the autoreplace of the noun "crab" for the in+cel term, does anyone recall the etymology?

Crab makes me think of the analogy of the inability to escape a bucket because the ones about to climb out are pulled down by the crabs on the bottom trying to pull themselves up.

Was this the analogy behind our use here? I'm trying to remember the context. Are the ICs the bottom crabs trying to pull down the VCs/wizards who are the top crabs about the escape the bucket of normie thinking?

If that is the case I'm left confused because both bottom crabs and top crabs are still crabs. Furthermore, I don't understand the correlation because it doesn't seem all crabs necessarily want to deny succubi to non-crabs, some might be content to share. The term only seems appropriate for the 'kill all succubi' types, who I expect are mostly a false flag planted by anti-celibate troll communities.
