We will mainly go over the topic of websites to use for our media uploads going forward like last time. At the current moment, Pixiv seems to be what most people prefer and we will be discussing how it will work if a better option is not suggested.
The meeting can watched via livestream link here: on Youtube or on Twitch
We hope you folks are prepared and will be there when the hour hits.
Recording can be found here.

Town Haul May 8 2020 Minutes

Community Topics
  • Moving the Community: Since the Eclipse update is now here, we're planning on using another site for the group's artworks. We in the administration feel that Pixiv.net is a good alternative as comic making is much more streamlined and its tagging system is quite good. Forums such as Reddit were mentioned but they have the drawback of allowing any post to be seen without submission.
  • Continuing Walfas: Flash is just about on the way out, the good news is the fact that we do have a flash player projector, a standalone flash player, and the create.swf source code. Some people are looking into finding an alternate way to continue walfas, but our use of flash will not last forever.

Project Announcements & Publicity

Community Projects
  • @SuperDragonite2172 and @ferdyferdy9 are working on their implementation of walfas that does not require flash. They currently do not have the github open yet, however. For anyone with some background in software development, send a message their way!
The next Town Haul will be on Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 at 4-6 pm EST.
Town Haul's coming up today, the reason why will become apparent in the topics list.

The meeting will be taking place in the Walfas Station Wagon's Discord chat as well as through a livestream hosted by me at roughly 4 - 6 pm EDT.

Community Topics:

  • DeviantART is Forcing Eclipse on us All: The group will not be shut down or removed. Eclipse, however, removes some of our admin tools with no viable work around in Eclipse when forced.
    The change will happen sometime on May 20th - www.deviantartsupport.com/en/a…
    With this in mind, do people want to stay with forced Eclipse? If not, what sites should we think of?
  • The Future of Create.swf, Flash, and Walfas Media: Flash will be discontinued, if it hasn't already. What will this mean for everyone who creates walfas media going forward?
  • Projects Announcements and Publicity: Got a project you or anyone else needs publicity for? Now's the time to bring it up! General rule of thumb for bringing up projects during the meeting is that you wait until an admin declares we have moved on to this topic. You must link the project/announcement, a basic synopsis of the project, and a link to the relevant announcer's DeviantArt account both in chat, and to the admin receiving your announcement for the minutes (so if someone else announces for you, they can get a mention alongside you). Basically: Have something to show, and make sure it's ready to present for the meeting.

If you aren't able to attend the town haul, please leave a comment if there is anything you would like to bring up during the town haul whether it is a concern, announcement, and anything in between.  In any case, we do hope that you will be able to attend the town haul, and remember to please remain civil in Town Haul.  There is a time and place for the memes, jokes, and of the like, but during the town haul, it isn't the time to use that.

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:

We also recommend you use these with
Adobe's "Flash Player projector" found here.
It is highly recommended you avoid the browser based ones.

Admins

Note: Despite appearing as founder for opening the DA page, Spaztique is only the tech-stuff admin. All admins share equal power.

In the event an admin violates the rules or is not doing their job (i.e. missing in action, not enforcing the rules/policies), please report it to one of the other mods. If they don't do anything, report it at the next Town Haul meeting. Please remember that any active member of the group (regularly posts content, is around enough to know what’s going on, and regularly interacts with folks) can call for a Town Haul.

Question: What is the distinction between a One-off comic series and an Ongoing series? If a one-off ends up becoming an ongoing thing, would we have to move all the parts to a different folder?
Reply
:icondeitydiz93:
DeityDiz93 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2020  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, though it can stay if you do a complete revamp and make new uploads, you can formally request a move here, and if it happens to be an older series in one-offs, just link us the page each piece is on for us to move.

Alternatively, a much easier way is for you to simply remove your submission manually, rename the upload to the desired part, and resubmit.

it depends on the medium. If primarily walfas, then comics/posters.

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!

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.
