What inspired you to make a separate Chan type website dedicated to Dreams? how did you promote the site?


Why's the Halloween button still up? It's terrifying.


For much of my life (though now less prominently for some reason). I've suffered from acute sleep paralysis (with strong hallucinations) and exploding head syndrome. My nights in a way would feel more alive than my days at times. I've always been intrigued by sharing dreams. I also have desired for awhile to have a "sleepy" style chan as a place to come relax and clear your head. I wanted the place to have its own culture. After launch I did a few rounds of advertising on 8ch via the self serve ads that garned initial traffic, and one very brief run on 4chan. A couple of longtime IRC friends were around in the beginning but I don't think they post anymore.

I guess I just like it. If you want to hide it you can add #halloween-button { display: none; } to user style extension.


duck uses 8ch?!?!?!?!!


I lurked on a few boards 4 - 5 years ago

whats your favourite amine duck?


Hm, tough. Probably Paranoia Agent


nice nice, and your favorite vidya?


Also hard, but I feel comfortable saying Fallout: New Vegas


Duck, how do you feel about the recent uptick in activity?


Duck, thanks for this cool place! I've been here for three years and a lot in my life changed but the adress, the mentality, the fine pace of posting stayed the same.


Donk, wdy thonk of dags and gads??!?!?!?




what do you think about cats and dogs?

What's the deeds board font?


I'm of course delighted to see more activity, more potential for interesting conversations. However I also maintain a faithful caution that it may bring some folks who will come here to get mad rather than relax.

Glad to hear it :3

dagswood sandwiches are good and gadszooks!

I am a fan, I myself have a dog, and enjoyed the family cats I had growing up. The font is called ArchitectsDaughter.


Do you ever hide your identity as Duck to mess around on /dream/ without any consequences?


I do post anonymously occasionally. When I do though, I am just a user, and hold myself to the same standard I would anyone else.

I do think of myself as one of you :)


is it true that you can see our IP address right next to our posts?

I'm glad you asked! Though I do use the Tinyboard software as a base for this site, I have heavily modified the codebase for efficiency purposes and self-preference. As I do lurk around logged in as administrator, I obscured the IP addresses client side, so they appear to me like in the screenshot I've posted.

However, I am the webmaster, and do own the instance that Dreamchan is hosted on, so I do have access to user IPs by virtue of that. I don't think that comes as a surprise to anyone. I take operational security very seriously though and do my best (I like to think I'm pretty good) to keep any post data safe from malicious actors.


Would you ever consider having a mod team or is dreamchan too small for something like that?


File: 1580963648636.png (210.09 KB, 1378x1046, Screen Shot 2020-02-05 at ….png)

I'd certainly consider it if the need rises, but right now I think we're very far from that point.

Here is the moderation log from the last year. As you can see it's extraordinarily minimal. I'd say 9/10 of those deleted posts were people advertising their chans/sites. Those get widely reported so I just delete them. Then only two bans for spam/illegal content.


>Then only two bans for spam/illegal content.
Duck, it's probably not my place, but if you run into illegal content in the form of links you can report them at WeTip.
PSA - Report illegal content. You don't have to fill the whole form out - just the necessities.
You can help people who need it!
PSA over.


If its not a link you can find the IP adress


Thanks, I already pass on info on those who post CP to the proper authorities.


I was about to say it was New Vegas, for a post you made in /gf/ with a New Vegas pic, guess I was right.
