You can tell bots by several different ways, including the following:

1) Email addresses (they have weird addresses that are usually based from some weird server, i.e. something@webhost.ru
2) Their speech pattern in the post. As you can tell most of us either don't use full punctuation or we do yet its only partial punction. Also just about everyone on the net uses some form of slang. Also have incomplete sentences
3) Links. An add bot will have multiple links to bogus sites, wise not to click any link that you're not familiar with.

They usually aren't responding to anything other than the thread's title, as well.  Nothing like, "That's my favorite anime too" or "You said you play this game but how long does it take the average person?" and so on.  They never quote anyone like I'm doing now.  Just standalone statements. 


well you should, it's funtimes

The only thing I remember from my few trips to Yanime's irc channel was that no one believed that I was a girl.  When Charles said that I am, they ridiculed him for 'believing' me.  >_>  That was just weird.

... wow. Do we need to have another Martin Luther King jr. speech but gender wise towards the internet...

The guys in my Japanese class agree  that there are no girls on the internet.  Well, at least some of them do.

But there are no waffos who play games online.  But I suppose that's not a gender, is it?

There's also a species of lizards that asexually reproduce.  No males exist so they're technically all lesbians.

I we should really start banning all these bots that's been spamming the forums.

There's nothing we can do about it. Even if we started banning bots, more will come to replace em. The registration process has to be fixed in order to stop the bots.

every meme thats been out there started out in 4chan surprisingly

Some started in Something Awful, other memes are older than 4chan. Others are subculture-specific and started in many different places. Heck, xkcd has even started a few memes (River Tam Beats Up Everyone). The TVTropes wiki is a good source for anime and manga tropes and memes, among other media-focused subcultures.


But there are no waffos who play games online.  But I suppose that's not a gender, is it?

Would you like a waffo gender here on the board? It would be bottom priority, but I could add it.



As for YAnime's future direction, I think I'm going to try and push it towards being a close-knit discussion forum. There are many really large boards out there, but you can get lost in the noise there and run into a lot of cliques.

I like the idea of "in-depth" audio casts and I think there are several neat featured things we can do here to drive traffic and create a sustainable community.

Currently, I'm investigating three different portal solutions that plug into the forum to offer a nice interface for things.

I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out. Best case scenario, everything works out and even attracts old members back, but who knows at this point. One can only hope though  ;D
