Hmm...
my ideal is a little rough but I think the vocal element can be hot too!

I prefer faithful translation with lots of TL notes because it actually gives me a glimpse into the culture and norms of the society as opposed to actively obfuscating it and making it nothing more than America Elsewhere.

Politics would be a no from me.
Shouldn't we hold on to our smallness? Otherwise there'd be too many posts for rss to make sense. Plus you'd get some dumbass to ruin all our fun.

I think a films section would be nice

Is a better translation more direct, or does the better translation convey more relatable meaning?

Do you expect a translator to go out of his / her way to make things relatable to you as an audience (see: jelly-filled dougnuts)? Or do you expect a lot of translator's notes?

Small is beautiful.

Growth is the ideology of a cancer cell.

Mumble Server!

by Prettyboy Yumi /
We now have a Mumble server!
Host: mumble.prettyboytellem.com
Port: 64738

Mumble is a voice-chat software which has been around since 2005; I'm excited to host a server where we can communicate in real-time! And it's not made by /g/ so it's practicaly guaranteed to stay around longer.
I've gotten the opportunity to test-drive it recently; if you've used Teamspeak or Ventrilo then it'll all come naturally. Download the client from the official site or fetch it from your distro's repositories.

Maybe you've noticed the recent, sporatic down-time? I can tell you that it's not just those BOFH at Spectrum but on the contrary I've been upgrading my mess of home-servers which keeps these sites (i.e. RalEE.org, prettyboytellem.com, howler.space, and raamen.org among others) in running condition! Sometimes there's so much maintanance to do and so much I want to explore that I don't have time between school and everything to do it all! If you ever want to lend a hand (either with maintainance or with the server finances) please reach out!

There's room if you want to come live in the server-room with me too.

FUTURE SEQUENCE #001

by Prettyboy Yumi /
Hello; we're closing in on the first anniversary of RalEE: on January 6th we will have witnessed the passage of our first year. This is a wonderful thing for a community to close in on and I'm glad that we have braved the rough waters well: there is nothing that makes me happier now than to think of how far we've come and how much farther we still can go in demonstrating the gems of our text-based, BBS community around the Internet.

To celebrate this milestone I will accelerate the release of FUTURE SEQUENCE #001. This experiment was originally planned for a much, much longer timetable but owing to a handful of unexpected early-successes, Future Sequence #001 will begin on Jan. 1, 12AM (GMT+0) and last until Jan. 6, 12AM (GMT+0). During these five (5) days RalEE.org will be inaccessible due to the future : I hope you will be understanding. RAL will be accesible again from Jan. 6th onward.

For the duration of the future sequence RAL will be operating in altered-state and as such your experience of the Internet may deviate from normal.

We hope your future-sequence goes well: until then...

New Domain and Welcome to v3.0

by Prettyboy Yumi /
Hiya; I just got around to adding some new things into RAL last night and finally I've decided it's tme to say it: welcome to RAL v3.0!

We even have a new URL to go with the recent changes: we're now on-line at ralee.org which is very easy to remember, especially for our newer friends. There are also lots of new themes to complement all these changes so check them all out (or you can find them anytime in the panel at the top of the page).

Finally I want to point out the brand-new Sysop / Co-sysop panel; I'm looking forward to recruiting a handful of co-sysops so that we can help our little community grow even more!

Version 2.0

by Prettyboy Yumi /
Oh, does something look different? It's RALv2.0! We've come a long way since January and this redesign makes me feel that it's only up from here! Special thanks to hellbaby for contributing the [Anime] and [Music] banner! If you'd like to get in on the behind-the-scenes action, join our IRC (howler.space:6667).

About

RAL is a text-only message board / forum. It is written by Prettyboy Yumi.

First, you may notice that there are a number of different boards which have a single focus. These boards are called Continuities because unlike boards, posts are never archived and threads are never locked: conversation is continuous, so it is called a Continuity; each has its own focus. The focus is a glimpse into realm of truth that is afforded by the Continuity. However, the truth is not freely-given and is hardly objective. Therefore, you should post to expose this truth. In turn, posting could not exist without this focusing truth so please respect it.

RAL is named for the beautiful city of oaks in North Carolina, Raleigh.


Rules

There are a few guidelines you should follow:

  1. No spamming
  2. Do not post anything which is explicitly illegal in the United States
  3. Lurk more - it's never enough
