Happy Two-Year Anniversary!


Countless comics, three community collab videos, and one whole movie later, we're still here and still growing like always. Congratulations to all of the members that made this possible: everyone who spread Touhou to people who would've otherwise missed it, everyone who grew as writers/artists/people thanks to the community, everyone who helped eachother out in the tough times (especially these people, given what we've went through), and everyone not listed and yet still helped make the Touhou community a better place.

From the pit of our souls, we thank you with every ounce of our being!

And here's to making this new year better than ever! Let's make Walfas a beacon of excellence in the Touhou community, regardless of what the naysayers say!


WSW Town Haul Meeting - July 2014


It's that time of the month again: time to pitch new ideas, talk about community concerns, and workshop new contests! Meeting time is on July 26, 2014, 6 PM Central. Below is this month's agenda for Town Haul.

WARNING: If you are going to discuss any of these issues in the comments, please keep it civil. We're the Walfas Station Wagon: we pride ourselves on respecting people's opinions.

1. Stamping out Elitism: Grammar nazis, people thinking they have a right to complain because they're "better" than others, making newcomers feel unwelcome: this is not what the WSW is about, and it appears to be a widespread problem in the community as a whole. How do we... A. Help those of lesser skill and make them feel welcomed?, and B. Let people with great skill know to stop acting like they're "better" and to start helping out others in a friendly way? This also applies to Senior Members: although Senior Members get highlighted for their accomplishments, they should not feel especially "privileged, nor should newer members feel discouraged from helping out.

2. Under-appreciation Issues: It seems too many Walfasers, especially big-name Walfasers, are feeling discouraged, ignored, and unappreciated. They feel like if they just plain left, nobody would miss them, but this isn't true. I myself am going to write the next Self-Development Wagon in a long time, but in the meantime, how do we let these people know, "We care! A lot!"?

3. Removal of inactive admins: Last month, we publicly reviewed some of the inactive mods, and it appears that two of them, RyuKenshin75 and Wilhiemthe2nd, are still refusing to participate in the community or produce new content. We'll leave it to the public to decide if it's time to open up new space.

4. Contest Pitches: We're running out of new contest ideas, so pitch your latest contest ideas for upcoming contests. We'll workshop them until they're ready to be tackled by the community.

5. Story and project pitches/publicity: Got a story or project you want to workshop or give publicity? Do it here! We'll link to it in the recap post!

If you can't make it to the Town Haul meeting, post your thoughts below. (And again, seriously, keep it civil.)
Rule 9: If it exists, there's a Touhou Version of it!

That's WSW/WC Contest #15: The Rule 9 Contest! Make a Touhou version of something! Hosted by MikiBandy, co-hosted by Spaztique.

Deadline: July 29. Voting from July 30-August 1st at Midnight. Winner announcement comic coming shortly after.

Entry list will be updated as entries come/as I (or other mods) have time. If your entry doesn't appear, either I haven't updated it or I need to check in with Miki to see if it's eligible.

That's odd. I was on yesterday and the day before that. In fact, I got a new SDW in the works and a contest entry coming.

I'm not as active as I was earlier, but I'm still here and still doing stuff.

The artist redbeatsmermaid, is planning to draw a picture for our 3rd anniversary. However she has stated that she is going to be a tad late due to college.

You may be aware already, so just look forwards to that. ^^
