What's the difference to the meta-2 thread >>3108? Will the other one be archived, so that new comments there don't delete old ones, and we go on here?
>>8494 >What's the difference to the meta-2 thread >>3108? Nothing really. It's just a long-time tradition on IBs that when a thread's post count reaches a board's bumplimit (ours is 350), that a new continuation thread is made. And, for the last couple of months or so here the old one's tail-end also gets repurposed into a new enclave of the Subterranean Club (though the meta-2's new sub-topic hasn't been decided on just yet). >Will the other one be archived, so that new comments there don't delete old ones, The old thread will stay around, yes. It just won't bump any longer. >and we go on here? Yep, this is the current /meta thread. Post all new board-general & QTDDTOT posts here. >=== -rm subterranean club spoiler -minor prose edit

>>8492 Are the fatchan dudes already ded?
>>8541 I'm assuming you mean the fatchan/robotwives/ board. The board itself has been deleted yes, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of those anons are still around Anon. Certainly they're still welcome here ofc.

>>8541 >>8545 I'm a bit out of the loop. What exactly happened with the fatchan situation? Was there some kind of beef between chobitsu and the people at fatchan? I recall reading the sticky of the fatchan board and the tone came off really condescending like he had a problem with this /robowaifu/ board. I feel like such a retard myself as I basically pulled a chobitsu by not even shitposting in the /b/ or metatread on /robowaifu/ for most of 2020. I just feel like an ass for that and I'm sorry. I still have aspirations for programming an AI but I have a long way to go. Also I heard that chobitsu is moving. From the previous times I've spoken with you, I think you mentioned you were in the south. Obviously opsec is important so I'm not asking you where you are moving to but I've done a cross country move and it's a pain in the ass.
>>8567 >as I basically pulled a chobitsu by not even shitposting in the /b/ or metatread on /robowaifu/ for most of 2020 Kek. I think you're misusing me here as a mis-attributed proverb Anon. I strongly believe in what we're attempting to do here, and my vision behind it is unironically intended for the benefit of mankind. 'Delusions of Grandeur', yes. 'Pipe dreams', yes. 'Not involved', definitely not. :^) I realize I rub some people the wrong way, and quite frankly I'm OK with that. It's not really intentional, just an artifact of my autistic concern & focus. Actually, I'd be a little concerned myself if I wasn't off-putting to some people in current year.
>>8569 I guess I'll add in the interests of full disclosure, that even when I was unable to participate on the board for extended periods, I never neglected to continue doing robowaifu-oriented research and studies. Sometimes things in life get in the way of your wishes.
>>8567 I don't really want to go through all of this again. Some anon(s) posted to much political stuff and about their anger against woman. Some, including me, criticized that. Not necessarily disagreeing, but the thread with it was always on top and getting people drawn into such discussions when coming here to do something else. It also was pretty redunant stuff which is on 1000 other boards as well. Chobitsu moved some comments around and Bump locked the shitposting thread. At least one anon got mad about it ... Lack or rules, guidelines ... Dictatorship!! ... And so he opened his own forum. This was even encouraged by some, because if people wanted to talk about all kinds of things which are somehow related to robowaifus, but not so much the development, then fine. Neighbors and Friends... But this is not what he wanted. I think, he hoped more devs would follow. He wanted a dev board, but with his aggressive rants. His board didn't have many visitors and especially nothing in regards on development. So he claimed to have lost interest in developing robowaifus and deleted the board (and probably his Talk2Waifu repository, though this might have been another one).
Hey there, /robowaifu/ We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if you guys wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament. For an example of what the tournament looks like, refer to infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Infinity_Cup_6 If you are interested, since your team has never played in previous iterations, we don't have either your roster, your kits or logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following: 1) Create a roster of 16 to 23 players, which can be named as you see fit; 2) Create a suitable logo for your board, it can be in any shape you want; 3) Create at the very least one kit for your team, which can be done by using this flat one as a template; There's no maximum on allowed kits, but the norm is to give a Home kit, an Away kit and a Goalkeeper kit at minimum; 4) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page; 5) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup. Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles: infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies Optionally2) Change roster names and/or give us 3D models to use for your team, or new kits or whatever contribution you'd like. I hope to see you guys on the pitch! >=== -protip: you might think about updating your pasta to reflect the current year friend.

>>8569 >Kek. I think you're misusing me here as a mis-attributed proverb Anon. I strongly believe in what we're attempting to do here, and my vision behind it is unironically intended for the benefit of mankind. 'Delusions of Grandeur', yes. 'Pipe dreams', yes. 'Not involved', definitely not. :^) Yeah I was being sarcastic when I said that. I was actually referencing that time when you got busy and didn't appear on /robowaifu/ for more than a month and people thought the CIA had killed you or something and then you came back safe and sound. >>8571 I assumed it had something to do with politics. We don't have to agree with each other on everything because as a long as we can work together on our project or at the very least, not kill each other then it's fine. A good example of this is my dad and best friend are libertarians while I lean more on the authoritarian right side of things. >At least one anon got mad about it ... Lack or rules, guidelines ... Dictatorship!! ... And so he opened his own forum. This might sound vaguely insulting but I would actually consider Chobitsu to be a benevolent dictator. In fact, If I was the ruler of my own country I would actually model my government style off the way he manages /robowaifu/. He protects his people from literal faggotry and and feminism, allows his people to conduct their own conversations among themselves about various topics without forcing one way of thinking, and even allow people to criticize him and doesn't mind of they leave or go make their own boards. From my own perspective, I find chobitsu to be one the best BOs on image boards in general. Now, on to a little bit of a lighter topic, what did /robowaifu/ do for valentine's day?
>>8578 I literally said loud "Nooo" when I saw that. Then I tried to even understand it first, what it actually is, and I still don't even know. But it's a very weird idea. Fantasy soccer between boards or whatever? >>8581 >what did /robowaifu/ do for valentine's day? Kek. We could have used it to tell people on social media about this board.

>>8582 I don't know if I would want to tell people about this board on social media but I see your point. Maybe I'm just afraid of normal fags coming here and fucking the board up. I am probably too paranoid.
>>8581 >Yeah I was being sarcastic when I said that. Heh, I know I was just taking the piss mate. :^) We all have our ups and downs, and this is literally the most challenging project I can even imagine for a confederate band of Anons to join together and work towards. We're rushing in where well-funded scientists, designers, and engineers 'fear to tread' haha. It's understandable if people need a break from it all myself included. Anons can feel free to call that 'pulling a chobitsu' if you'd like. :^) >>8583 >Maybe I'm just afraid of normal fags coming here and fucking the board up. I am probably too paranoid. Honestly, of any imageboard I can think of, I believe /robowaifu/ will actually benefit from an influx of normalcattle far better than other boards (at least while I'm able to give some focus to the board). We would absolutely have to have one or two more like-minded moderators here if it happened, but otherwise it wouldn't damage our culture at all IMO. Just in case it's not already apparent, we're not really the standard-issue imageboard here. And now that we've got the subterranean sections to keep functional segregation working, then we could manage it quite well I'd say. I don't really that view is being arrogant either. Apart from the very minimal rules themselves, the very subject matter itself seems to be a kind of self-regulating topic. Most everyone who's ever participated here has generally taken the project seriously. I myself find that rather remarkable (and humbling).
>>8582 >Fantasy soccer between boards or whatever? I think it's an actual amateur vidya elimination tourney. Never saw it myself, but it's been going on between a few boards since before 8ch was red-flagged. It migrated over when the webring arose.
>>8578 Pardon me, it seems I have forgotten to change the year...AGAIN. >>8579 Time is a closed loop >>8582 >Fantasy soccer between boards or whatever? Pretty much, yes. You can see what it looks like here: https://sfo2.digitaloceanspaces.com/vods/replay/SKF_replay_1613329226272.mp4 We try and have as many webring boards as possible as well as provide a way to advertise boards if you so wish thanks to the matchups and the wiki.
>>8613 Thanks for stopping by, /icup/ . Good luck with tournament this year.
>>8586 >normalcattle Who is still normal these days? Pick them from their communities while avoiding the bad oranges: MGTOWs and Incels are groups which are interested in fembots and already discuss that. MGTOWs are more likely to be a bit older, to have some money, to be self-employed, being white, and/or on the economic right. Incels are more likely to be younger, poor and/or POCs. Some of the Incels might be socialist-leaning and/or be rather anti-white, but better we show them a better way than letting them become SJW simps as soon as they have more money. Neither group is automatically full of tech-savvy people, but it's quite likely there are some and others being interested to learn. Then there are lovedoll owners, which also already discuss animating their dolls, or only putting some AI plus voice into it, or at least how to make their own dolls (dollforum). Anyone primarily interested in tech and not being too political in either way, but especially the wrong one, would also make a good recruit. SWJs trying to infiltrate the communities around AI, probably with some success, but not necessarily with much, bc engineers are probably more reality based and not very political. Anime "fans" aka weebs might also be a interesting target group. Especially if they have waifu pillows, or if they buy or even build/print figurines, maybe even big ones. They might also count as NEETs which haven't found their purpose in life yet. Same for many Gamers and Table-Top-Players. Of course women are already invading these fandoms or communities to be close to guys and the current trend, also marked their bodies for money (Twitch- and Onlyfans-thots) and make everything about themselves. Same goes for SJWs which try to infuse their soystrogene poison into these places. So this part would be more about saving poor souls before they're being lost. I nearly forgot the fans of the live action adaption of Alita aka Alita-Army. Since they are literally obsessed with a kind cyborg woman with big eyes, including drawing her and buying/printing figurines, they might also be interested in what we are doing here.

>>8617 All good points Anon, I can't find anything to disagree with you on that personally. >normalcattle Yeah, that was probably a poor choice of words on my part. I suppose I really just meant the wide swath of men who aren't actually part of the imageboard world already. Obviously that's the vast majority. As far as anyone trying to push agendas, etc., here goes, I think we'll be fine as long as I'm here to run the helm. Not that someone else mightn't do as good (probably even a better) job at it, but I'm autistic AF about things I think are harmful to us as a group overall and will segregate destructive stuff off quickly when I come across. My apologies to everyone I've offended here who weren't intentionally trying to harm us, but maybe just got carried away a little. I did too, and I ask forgiveness from you for it. But let's put the past behind us and just stay focused on the task at hand is my advice. Everyone here should just keep moving forward! > In the meantime, much as you indicated, I think /robowaifu/ itself and the projects we're pursuing can potentially serve as a great 'halfway-house' to help wean the right kind of men off the constant bombardment of corporate-media brainwashing they've been subjected to basically all their lives. Some of them will even come to their senses here I believe.
>>8618 I wasn't even complaining, though. The term "normalcattle" is quite funny. Just wanted to use it to point out all the communities, mainly outside of image boards, which are or might be close to what we're doing here in some ways. >just keep moving forward! Yes!
>YFW you're trying to keep things a little quieter than usual around the house >so you can focus on programming the latest, greatest robowaifu breakthroughs by the next big kit-release deadline coming up soon >but your favorite robowAIfu keeps nagging you b/c she wants you to let her out so she can romp and play with you all day instead. >you know where that road always leads... The Robowaifu Age will be filled with some tough decisions tbh.
>>8686 Great, if you already have such an AI. This topic is already being covered by artists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olRbG-9mfa0
>>8686 >greatest robowaifu breakthroughs by the next big kit-release deadline coming up soon What kit are you talking about? Did I miss something?
How's our waifu's body going to be made? Is it going to be 3D printed parts?
>>8734 Well, I think there will be lots of 3D printed components, yes. But most designs will also make use of pre-manufactured parts as well. Things like metal parts, etc. And then other thing like wide plastic 'skins' will be better manufactured in other ways than printing. Vacuum-forming plastics is one way, for example. Of course there will be things that are nearly impossible for Anons to manufacture currently, like microcontrollers and other computer parts. Thankfully, even this will change in the future however. But in the end, the way most men will have their own DIY Robot Wives is through kits. Anons here and elsewhere will devise kits that can be shipped out and then assembled at home. This will be both easier and cheaper than inventing them yourself. Do you have other questions about it Anon?
>>8734 We are not working on one design, but pushing a variety of options how those waifus could be build. Some parts will certainly be 3D printed, at least the biggest part of the bones.
>>8736 >And then other thing like wide plastic 'skins' will be better manufactured in other ways than printing. That depends on what you consider 3d printing to be. Once I get everything going I can imagine the armature for the limb or skeleton for an entire body suspended in a several piece mold that has silicon poured in while a SCARA arm or two(maybe one arm if it can move around the mold) injects different types of silicon or air bubbles inside the skin for a more realistic texture. This approach is the only way I can think of to install tubing for a heated water or compressed air circulation system. Or to print complex air muscles as seen in this video inside the skin. I'm still in the early planning phases of thinking this through, best case scenario I can scrounge up enough money to do some small tests this year.
>>8739 That all sounds really quite interesting Anon. Good luck, both with the funds needed and all the other resources too!
>>8739 Great video, but are the parts better? Why would it be the only way for water or air?
Found it, also found out that I watched it before: https://youtu.be/i5L6CpD6nM8 and here the website of their company: https://www.3dsiliconeprinting.com/ There's no free paper available, the one here costs 15$ for members: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8404935 however here https://softroboticstoolkit.com/3d-silicone-printer is more info and Open Source parts. The claim is, that their parts are working better or in other cases as well a molded parts. If true, then that's great.
>>8742 Thanks!
