Thanks for kind of letting us know about your concerns here AllieDev. First and foremost, know that you are much appreciated! :^) Your contributions here, and your new leadership role here are an encouragement to all of us, and to me in particular. Thank you.
>I found some archives of the 8chan era of the board. Looks like my project was not the first of its kind here:
Yes, Aoki Lapis
Anon was a real encouragement to us all when he participated with us more regularly. I hope he's doing well today. It would be fun for us all, old & new, to see him pick his project back up here and finish it up. I'm sure he'd like your project too, AllieDev.
>It is very demoralizing to keep going with little to no feedback compared to this versus the essentially pen pals/once every few days thing I've had with almost exclusively Kiwi for several months now.
Please don't take what I'm going to say personally. I mean you no harm, and I"m trying to help you see you may be kind of misunderstanding the board's history a little. With that said, check the start/end dates on the thread archive you linked. That was effectively a span of about a year and a half's time. While I may be misremembering things a little, I don't recall there was more frequent dialog going on with that thread than in you and Kiwi's Madoka.mi prototype thread
, AllieDev. In fact, I'd say you two are moving forward with your project much more rapidly than that Anon's work IIRC.
This is a slow process for all of us. We are literally pioneering an entire new, extremely complex, field of endeavor Anon. Namely. DIY (as in inexpensive & straightforward to build) Robot Wife companions. Pygmalion legends, et al, notwithstanding, this has never been accomplished before in human history
(and others Anons like us around the world) are the Intrepid Adventurers, AllieDev. Few are cut out for it. I'd advise patience, both with all of us, and especially with yourself. With God's help, we'll all get there! :^)
>stuff like that just leaves me feeling frustrated and alienated for no reason like I am being taken for a ride with my own project while everyone else talks to each other like long time colleagues
Honestly, you have my apologies if it appears I'm snubbing you Anon. I certainly have no intention to appear so, nor do I feel that way in fact. I'll freely admit that I'm not the best leader for the team here. Again my apologies for that (and to everyone here, not just to you). I'll try to improve on that moving forward this year! :^)
Alright that's said and done. You mentioned
>It seems like no one else cares.
>I would like to be able to email Chobitsu and ask about what happened to the IRC that this board apparently had once during that era.
Not only do I care, but I'm highly enthusiastic about you and everyone here's efforts and progress. It means a lot to me, Anon. I'm sure practically every other regular here feels the same.
As far as the IRC, that was directly the effort of one of our honored vols from the past, Dollfan
. I miss his input here tbh. He was both smart, talented, and motivated. I hope he finds us and comes back here some day soon. But you're in authority here now too, AllieDev. Just set up an IRC channel (preferably one that supports TOR please, as that's the only way I myself will participate)
, and I'll put it up on the board announcement. My email address you have. Just let me know here if you ever need to send me an email, and I'll log in there to check it.
In closing, I'd say just try to stay motivated internally AllieDev. This is a slow (and generally a lonely) process for all of us. Remember that we all support and applaud your efforts with your robowaifu project, even if we don't say so directly. Godspeed to you and to your project Anon, you've come far. We look forward to see where you go with her.
