WSW Town Haul Meeting July 2014 Minutes:
  • In regards to elitism, remember the following. Do not confuse standards for elitism, do not confuse elitism for high standards: if your entries ever get rejected from submission, you have a right as a member to ask why it got rejected. At the same time, give new people a chance: in many case, content is greater than execution. You can still criticize people without being a jerk: remember to emphasize what they got right so they can keep improving their strengths. To quote ChibioChen, "Criticism is like rain: you should only give enough to feed a plant without killing the roots."
  • When criticizing Touhou stories, remember not to harp too much on Canon vs. Fanon/Headcanon. Storytelling tends to trump Canon/Fanon every time. Besides, Zun gave us plenty of wiggle room for our fan works: you are free to use it!
  • This community, admins and members, cares for its members. Do not think for one second that you are unappreciated, because you are. You are more loved than you think, and even if that's not true, you can still earn more love from others by sending love out. Go out and make friends, connect with others, leave honest comments on people's stuff. Appreciation/Love is not to be confused with fame. Having close friends will always beat having shallow fans. Plus, be on the lookout for Spaztique's new guide, Self-Development Wagon #6: Star Power Doesn't Work! (But Friendship Does!)
  • A reminder: If a mod steps out of line, report it and be sure to bring it up in the next Town Haul Meeting! Hold our admins accountable for their actions if they harass or make inappropriate jokes. You, the members, are our system of checks and balances.
  • After a 31-to-1 vote, Wilhiemthe2nd and RyuKenshin75 have been removed from the administration for inactivity. Like the other admins who left recently, they are still allowed in the community and have an opportunity to re-earn their status as admins.

  • MikiBandy - Senpai Contest/Veteran and Noob Contest: Veteran Helps Newcomer Make A Walfas Tennis!

Coming Soon!:

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.)

How so? Is this problem caused in an image editor? Photo viewer? Deviantart?

I realized that the WSW Anniversary and the formation of One Direction are in the same day. That's like the best of both worlds!
