this is a shameless self-plug for my oekaki board! :-D https://oekaki.cinni.net/

feel free to stop by and doodle! what's an oekaki board some of you may ask?
  --> it's an old school forum with a drawing program included, so you can post your drawings to the BBS (bulletin board system)

i'm using POTI-board as the template for the oekaki bbs ->

since oekaki boards are old programs, plz excuse some of the janky-ness with the site. i'm slowly working on a guide to make the site easier to use ;w;

First time I hear about an oekaki board, and I love the bbs feeling of it, and the way it looks. Congrats for putting it together!

Wow, I haven't seen one of these in ages...it's fantastic to see someone keeping the oekaki tradition alive! I completely missed the intial wave Back In The Day...I legitimately just thought "oekaki" was a word to describe people who used MS Paint to create art (whoops). It's nice to have an opportunity to finally try it out for real. On another note, I love the theme and the "logo" you've designed for the site. Although, that may just be another way of saying, I think you really have the old-school web aesthetic down to a T while also keeping it fresh  8)

Was there any particular inspiration for getting this set up? Or just a fun web experiment?

first off, i love your drawing that you posted so much! AHHHH ;w;

im glad u like the logo! i was trying to evoke old video game vibes n got the font from this graphic designer i follow. i have tons of pixel fonts but i thought this one was unique enough to purchase bwahaha. i got 'em here. their other fonts are so crazy good tooooo

i used to go on oekaki boards back in the day, when they were more popular. i think i would lurk/doodle in a few oekaki boards run by popular deviantart artists. i always thought it was so cool that you could play back animations of drawings! at the ~height~ of oekaki board-ism there was much more of a system in place - some sites had a sketch board, and to be able to draw in the main board you had to apply - AND if you were *really* good you would be able to draw in the ~special~ oekaki board, LOL. the communites were way bigger back then, though.

anyways, since i started neocities i always wanted to create my own oekaki board, but with a more chill/cozy vibe. OFC with static hosting it wasn't really an option, so when i heard about leprd.space i jumped right on that so i could finally make the oekaki board of my dreams haha. i noticed that oekaki boards were more rare now which just made me want to make one so much more!

(i totally meant to respond to this way sooner, oops!) but yess! if you have access to dynamic hosting it's not as hard as i thought it would be to set up. it would be super fun to have an oekaki board just for yourself n friends! i took the extra step of adding in a login system to avoid spam since i wanted to make mine public, but otherwise the POTI-board template works out of the box. :-p

I think this is cool, I'd like to do my own -- do you experience any annoyances with maintenance or is it easy to maintain and filter

it's pretty simple to get it set up, but here's where i've run into small problems (note: i am not well versed in php, juuuuust enough to tweak a thing here or there):

- by default anyone can post and upload images. to mitigate spam a little bit, i included a simple login system. there are no actual *accounts* or profiles, but it prevents anyone from making a post unless theyre logged in - otherwise it redirects to the register page. i've also disabled image uploads :-p i would also use a honeypot for the login, because one time i found a bot trying to register like 16,000 accounts... (ow my database)

- because i spent hours customizing and tweaking the code to implement these changes, i actually don't know the best way to upgrade the software without losing all the data intact @_@'''' this is a problem of my own making tho haha

- because the original software is in japanese and it's a bit obscure, it's a little hard to find english support for it... i actually spent a day translating all the japanese comments in the files T_T

- i've been lucky enough where i don't really need to keep my eye on the site to look out for spam, etc because it's not super active :p (*fingers crossed*)

let me know if you have any further questions!!

That's pretty cool, have you uploaded your version of the translated documentation anywhere? I'd like to mirror it also. A lot of interesting things on the web are inaccessible due to localization issues (e.g., Chinese internet is pretty much splintered off from the West).

Oh wow, this is so cool! I haven't been on a oekaki board in years. Used so many between 2003 to 2009ish. Show specific ones like Teen Titan, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Codename: Kids Next Door. There was one giant board that I remember using, but I can't remember the name. It had a sketch board, a spam board, a novice, intermediate, and advanced board... I think it might have been related to the Naruto forums, but I can't say for sure.

Anyway! Definitely gonna go draw something.  \o/
