Here is why you are seeing this journal months after the meeting:

The person who volunteered to write the minutes got buried in college work and important real life concerns. After months of no progress, I asked them to let me take over and they agreed.

With that out of the way, here are the minutes.


Recording can be found here.

Town Haul December 2018 Minutes


Community Topics
  • DeviantART Eclipse: The changes being pushed by Eclipse seeks to remove not only widgets but groups as well. After some debate, we feel that Pixiv or Proboards would be a good platform to move to.
  • The State of Extended Discussion: This discord channel was made originally to be an extension of the town hauls, where people brought up community concerns. It doesn't see that kind of use, instead it gets used for real world political debates. Instead of removing it entirely as it is a well established room, we plan to implement a community channel for issues pertaining to the walfas community.
  • Inactive Member Pruning: Every six months of inactivity, there is a grace period of communication, after which if there's no answer, then removal. Removals of this nature do not count as a ban. Quite a few inactive members were removed with the chance to return at any time to the discord should they want to.
  • Group Drama from Other Groups: We want no involvement in outside affairs, so we ask that you don't bring drama from other groups into ours and vise versa.
  • The Anti-Stalking Rule: In short, the Walfas Station Wagon will not be used as a means of contacting anyone who has blocked you.

The Project Announcements will not be included due to how late this came out. We apologize for the major delay overall.
Please refer back to the Town Haul for December 2018 announcement for the list of topics to cover so we are all up to speed on the order we will go through in the meeting. If you need a reference for what time it is in central, refer to this and compare it with your time zone accordingly.

Please note that for those in pacific time, this reminder came two hours early from the day this is referring too, the Town haul is on December 22, 2018 on Saturday, so this will be the exact date for the Town Haul.

The meeting can watched via livestream link here: www.twitch.tv/ort451 or on www.youtube.com/user/ORT451/li…

We hope you folks are prepared and will be there when the hour hits.
Those red and green lights aren't just danmaku this time, because A Very Walfas Christmas is right around the corner!

Once again, we would love to see all kinds of submissions from across the Walfas community. Our submission standards haven't changed much, but here they are:

-Keep it short. The shorter your sketches, the faster-paced the video will be. Longer sketches may be split into segments if needed.

-No copyrighted music. Music licensed under Creative Commons is highly recommended. We don’t want any strikes on the WSW channel. There are plenty of copyright-free and Creative Commons resources for music (Kevin MacLeod’s incompetech.com being the first and most well-known that comes to mind). Touhou music, vanilla and remixed, is fine, too.

-Keep it winter-themed. 

-Keep it PG. We will bleep and blur certain things ourselves if necessary, but please keep in mind that we have a fair number of minors in the community, so please show some discretion when it comes to potentially objectionable content.

-Keep it Touhou. These specials are meant to focus on and celebrate Touhou. Please keep OCs and creator cameos to a minimum. Background characters for the sake of extras are acceptable.

-The final video will be edited and rendered at 1280x720, 29.97 (interchangeable with 30) frames per second. For best results, your sketches should conform to these dimensions if your resources allows you to. Sketches at 15, 10, 6, and 5 frames per second will look clean in these dimensions.

-Anyone can submit a sketch, and submit as many sketches as you want! No membership required! Fans and affiliates are more than welcome to contribute! The only people we won’t accept sketches from are those who have been permanently banned from the Wagon.

-Care about your work! Challenge yourself! These collabs are the perfect opportunity to put your best creative foot forward for the community and show what Walfas is capable of! Bump up that animation quality! Tackle voice acting and lip syncing! Use original writing and jokes that you can call your own and be proud of!

-Please be mindful that some sketches may not get in. We usually have a small handful of sketches for each special that we've had to cut for quality or content reasons.

-Render your sketches as either a WMV or MP4 file, then upload them to a file host such as Sta.sh, DropBox, or MediaFire and send Spaztique a note or Discord PM containing the link.

Chances are this will be a belated Christmas special as it usually is, so the submission deadline will be January 31, 2019, or once we have at least 7 minutes of material, whichever comes second.

In case anyone needs help with their sketches, please provide a link to any post you've made asking for help, and we'd love to see people volunteer in the comments below as Animators, Writers, and Voice Actors. Animators take completed scripts and audio tracks and animate them; Writers take sketch ideas and help expand them into complete scripts; Voice Actors provide voices for completed scripts.

If you're going to volunteer for any of these roles, please make sure you're available and willing enough to provide your help.

We are currently using a voice chat application called Discord to do voice conversations. This is our latest public voice chat for the WSW, Affilliates, and fans of Walfas/Touhou. The fastest way to contact our active admins is through Discord. Get help with projects, do collaborations, report problems, or just plain hang out with the community is to join this! We'll get a setup tutorial out on how to get Discord working, so hang in there!

NOTE: Please don't ask us for a Discord instant invite in the comments below if you just made an account. Spend some time in the community and make content for it and one of the admins will send you an invite via DeviantArt notes. Bear in mind that your invite links will expire after a while, so you will need to accept the link preferably within a day's time. Discord Instant Invites are on an ask-an-admin-only basis, and you will have to go through a brief screening process.

Create.swf Creation Tool

Here is our regularly used tools of trade, create.swf extended, which is a modified overhaul of the version 3.39 of create.swf.

This mod is managed by rsgmaker, and this mod includes a number of features to enhance Walfas, including dynamic hair coloring, skin color changing, additional objects, more backgrounds, and much more! You'll get the full idea here:

Hello there, I'm just making this post for confirmation reasons, but I feel like it's about time that I should announce that I am officially leaving this community. Not due to any bad reasons, but considering I haven't done anything Walfas related since early 2016 and now knowing what I want to do with my future, I feel like it's appropriate now to just move on.

A lot of the reasons why I'm no longer doing Walfas is simply for the fact that I lost interest and grew out of it. I don't find Walfas appealing anymore and to put it bluntly it's an outdated medium. I'm not saying Walfas is bad by any means, and if people still enjoy doing it then more power to them, hell, I had fun with it when I did. However, due to the reasons above, and with my now drive to make other content like more of my artwork and videos, I must let this place go for good.

I do want to thank everyone who I made friends here and I do NOT regret my time being here. We had our ups and downs, but it was fun as hell while it lasted. This journey I've had within this community had been a major stepping stone in my life, and I am truly grateful for the lessons I've learned being apart of this community. I am a better man now because of the people I met here in this group, and there isn't enough words I can say to truly show my gratitude. All I can say is thank you.

Thank you :icondeitydiz93:. Thank you :iconspaztique:. Thank you :iconminiwitch3:. Thank you :iconceej39:. Thank you :iconchibiochen:. Thank you :iconort451:. And I also want to say thank you to all of the wonderful people who I have met from being apart of this community. I've met one of my now best friends from this place, I've had a great relationship with a wonderful girl from this place. I will truly never forget this place and I really do wish you guys for the best of luck in the future!

However, I WILL still stay in the Discord server because I still want to have connections with people in there and just for memory sake as well. You guys have been a big part of my life, and now it's time for my next chapter. I will still be in contact with y'all, but for now, it's time to move on.

So once again, thank you guys for everything, and I really do wish you all the best. So 
please, do take care.

Thank you guys so much for letting me in! I may not be a content making machine but I will try to reach that title to a certain extent! I'm way more active on Discord so may I ask for an invite to the server? I'm happy to be a part of this community!

DeityDiz93 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2019
You're welcome, thank you for joining!

Since you're new, it's important to share the About Us page we have here as that goes over a lot of important details and ideas, but given what you're asking for, it must be stated that we do not hand out invites to people who don't actively create.

Thankfully you don't have to be a content making machine, but we need posts of some form to be on here so we not only have an idea that you have continued interest in the community, but aren't just going to drop off in the Discord and take a backseat to what we're all about here.

That being said, if you want to join our Discord, it's a good idea for you to get in touch with the community itself here, many people who post here are so too active on the Discord, so commenting on other people's works and making an example of what you can do is a great way to tell us how much you take the Discord, something we take ourselves, seriously.

To put it into perspective, we have 875 members here on dA, but only 154 members on the Discord, and while that sounds bad for chances, the reality is that way more than half of those people here on dA aren't even active, but as those who have got in as initiates, it's not hard to be a member at all, it just takes some dedication, not even everyday, but ever so often.

So to sum up:
1. We don't hand out invites to freshly made DeviantArt accounts with nothing to show yet.
2. We need those who just arrived to make a presence and post content to the group to show they'd be happy to create Walfas for the group with more or less good activity.
3. We take entry into the Discord seriously, asking activity on Discord and DA in terms of content to be as steady as can be; it's a cross-community thing.

We'd be happy to host the part of the Town Haul where Projects and Announcements are, but even these have been low in demand so in a sense that's why it's been quiet.

I don't think I've properly said anything about the fact I'm leaving this community, so uh.. better late than never.

Pewdswolf here, if any of you remember me. I must thank all of you for the fun times I've had, and all the friends I've made here. The table flips, the comics, the stories, it was quite an experience.

However, I feel that it's a good thing that I dropped Create.swf, in favor of developing and refining my skills with pixel art, where I feel I have much more creative potential. Still, I won't forget the fun I've had around here, the collabs I've taken part in, the appearances I've made in other people's creations, and all that.

I hope all of you have a great time, and here's to a bright future.

Is there going to be an announcement for the Christmas collab? It seems a bit late in the month to first be announcing it now. There was one for the Halloween Spooktacular, so I don't know why I haven't seen one for this.

yeah it does feel weird that no Christmas collab announcement was made on DA as the only reason I ended about knowing about the Christmas collab deadline was because Spaz made a journal post about needing voice actors for his and Unknowns runner for the collab

I couldn't think of any ideas for a sketch of my own, but I know they normally
let people offer voice or animating skills to other projects that need them, so
I figured that maybe I could help someone else with theirs if I couldn't think of
anything for myself. However, with no announcement, and us being almost halfway
to Christmas already, that seems highly unlikely. It's especially strange since they
did an announcement video on Youtube to attract non-members for the Halloween
collab, while they're being unusually quiet about this one...

:iconomegastar1997:
Omegastar1997 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2018
yeah they did an annoucement for it last year so I'm guessing they forget to do it this time around and when they realized they forgot to make the announcement they just decided that it was too late to make the said announcement.
