Current Wacintaki Poteto Version: wac-1.3.3
No automatic deletion is set.
If you are registered and have a draw flag, you may begin drawing by clicking on “Draw” on the menu bar. If you do not have a draw flag, contact an administrator for details on how to acquire one. Note that admins may revoke your ability to draw (rather than ban you) at any time if you misbehave.
On the draw screen where you select the applet you want to use, make sure the animation checkbox is selected. Then, just draw as you normally would. The applet will automatically track your movements and store it in a file.
Try downloading the Sun Java Runtime Environment, or JRE, at http://www.Java.com. Older versions of Windows support Java with a program called the Microsoft Virtual Machine, which has always had problems and has been discontinued. The latest version of Internet Explorer works well with the JRE, but you may want to get a more stable alternative browser, such as Firefox or Opera, to minimize the risk of lost drawings.
Again, try downloading the latest JRE at http://www.Java.com. Some versions of Java, and the Microsoft Virtual Machine, do not store images properly and may prevent them from being imported into applets. You may also want to enable animation support when drawing, which will allow retouching with older versions of Java. Turning on animation support will help solve the retouch problem on most other oekaki boards, too.
Unfortunately, there is a compatibility problem with the OekakiBBS applet and the Windows version of the Sun Java Runtime Environment, also known as the Java Plugin. OekakiBBS will run normally, but is unable to submit a picture once it has been completed.
Older versions of Windows come with a Java platform called the Microsoft Virtual Machine, but this has been discontinued in newer versions of Windows. The Java Plugin is distributed by Sun Microsystmes and must be downloaded seperately from Sun's Website.
If you prefer to use the OekakiBBS applet, you may uninstall the JRE and use the Microsoft Virtual Machine. It is also possible to only install the JRE with an alternative browser like Firefox, and use Microsoft's VM only with Internet Explorer, but this is not recommended.
This issue is a problem with the OekakiBBS applet itself. If a newer version of OekakiBBS is released that is compatible with the Java Plugin, Wacintaki may include it.
You may recover your password here.
If you can't get your password back with password recovery, tell the owner of the board, and he or she can give you a new password.
This is likely a web browser problem. You should empty your browser cookies. A cookie is a small tag of information that lets a server know who you are. Most browsers have an option to clear cookies from the “Tools->Options” menu.
Your picture may not be lost. If the picture finished uploading, but you were unable to comment, go to “Administration->Recover Pics” to recover it. Your information has still saved, including the time it took for you to draw it. If you have trouble, the administrator may recover pictures for you, or upload a screen capture you took using the “Print Scrn” key.
NOTE: Pictures saved using a screen capture may be very large and in a format not compatible with Wacintaki. Please tell an administrator about your lost picture before sending a huge picture file to an admin's e-mail address!
By default, only administrators may upload pictures. However, admins may enable upload access to individual members on a case-by-case basis. Ask an administrator for upload permissions.
Note that some people don't like pictures on oekaki boards that are not drawn with the paint applets, so if you are granted access to the upload feature, use it in accordance with the board Rules.
Most likely it is a problem with your web browser. To resolve the issue, just refresh your page. If that doesn't work, you may have to clear your web browser's cache.
Most web browsers will allow you to refresh the page and clear the cache in one step by holding “Ctrl-F5,” or allow you to manually clear the cache (or “Temporary Internet Files”) via the “Tools->Options” menu.
To help protect e-mail addresses from spam, you must be logged into your account to see other peoples' addresses in their profile or the memberlist.
You will always be able to see admin e-mails, but you will have to substitute the anti-spam character with the “@” symbol.
Wacintaki Poteto allows administrators to disable the chat and mailbox systems normally found in OekakiPoteto. The chat system uses a lot of bandwidth and some servers may not be able to use it. If the mailbox has been disabled, you may send e-mails to people directly by viewing that person's profile or the memberlist. Note that you must be a member and logged in to see e-mail addresses.
Click on member names to open up their profiles, and click on “send a message” at the top of that page. You must be logged into your account to send messages.
When the picture limit is reached, OP will recycle through the picture count starting at 0. Archiving a picture will prevent it from being overwritten by this process. Only administrators can do this. Future versions of Wacintaki may replace the archive with another system.
Please do not argue with admins over [non]-archived pictures.
If it is set, at a specific date, all users who haven't logged in within the specified time will automatically be removed from the board. To prevent this from happening, ask an administrator to give you an Immunity flag, or log into the board on a regular basis.
An adult picture is anything that is only suitable for 18+ viewing. This includes aggressive violence, nudity, or anything of a sexual or explicit nature. If you are drawing such a picture, please tag it with an adult flag when posting your comment. If you cannot view adult pictures and would like to see them, you must select “Edit Profile”, and make sure the “Allow Adult Images” checkbox is selected.
You should read the Rules to see if any additional or alternative conditions have been specified by the admins.
Images become thumbnails based on a number of factors, including the filesize of your image, and what thumbnail mode the administrator has selected for the BBS. You may change thumbnail and layout modes in “Edit Profile” if the administrator allows members to choose their own view modes.
OekakiPoteto (horrible Japanese romanji conjugate of “Protect”) is a PHP extension of the OekakiBBS and PaintBBS online painting applets where artists can draw and post their work online. It does not rely on OekakiBBS' “picture.cgi” (which can easily be hacked), and is more protected in the fact that it uses a private registration system for users to post pictures.
Wacintaki is a full rewrite of the original OekakiPoteto, and is maintained by Marc “Waccoon” Leveille. Since OekakiPoteto 5.x has been officially discontinued, Wacintaki was written to fix a few bugs and update the BBS to be compatible with more modern servers and web browsers. It also includes a few new features, like thumbnails, better performance, support for Shi-Painter, uploads, and lower bandwidth usage.
OekakiPoteto was written by Theo Chakkapark (aka RanmaGuy) and Marcello Bastéa-Forte. RanmaGuy is the main coder for OekakiPoteto, while Marcello has written the parsing code for the OekakiBBS and PaintBBS applets, as well as the PaintBBS hack to allow retouching. Travis coded the ban script used in OekakiPoteto to keep the evil people away. Special thanks goes to Uriel for providing development space for OekakiPoteto, as well as providing us with detailed bug reports.
Wacintaki Poteto was written by Marc Leveille, using the original OekakiPoteto code as reference, and has been released with permission from Theo Chakkapark. Any unmodified OekakiPoteto 4.x or 5.x board may be upgraded to Wacintaki Poteto!
The latest version of OekakiPoteto may be downloaded from RanmaGuy's Homepage. After a 2-year hiatus, OekakiPoteto was updated to version 5.1.5aa in August 2005.
Wacintaki Poteto may be downloaded from the NineChime Software Products page.
Development of a brand new, open-source OekakiPoteto is proceeding. For more information about the project, view the development forum. Currently, Waccoon's plan is that Wacintaki will be retired and replaced with the new open-source OekakiPoteto when it becomes available.
