What is OekakiPoteto?

OekakiPoteto (horrible Japanese romanji conjugate of "Protect") is a PHP extension of the OekakiBBS and PaintBBS online painting applets where artists can draw and post their work online; it does not rely on OekakiBBS' picture.cgi (which can easily be hacked), and is more protected in the fact that it uses a private registration system for users to post pictures.

Who is responsible for the development of OekakiPoteto?

Theo Chakkapark/Chakkaphak (aka RanmaGuy) and Marcello. RanmaGuy is the main coder for OekakiPoteto, while Marcello has written the parsing code for the OekakiBBS and PaintBBS applets, as well as the PaintBBS hack to allow retouching. Travis coded the ban script used in OekakiPoteto to keep the evil people away. Special thanks goes to Uriel for providing development space for OekakiPoteto, as well as providing us with detailed bug reports.

How can I send a message to someone?

What is an archive?

When the picture limit is reached, OP will recycle through the picture count starting at 0. Archiving a picture will prevent it from being overwritten by this process. Only administrators can do this.

How do I start drawing?

If you are registered and have a draw flag, you can begin drawing on the OekakiPoteto by clicking on Use OekakiBBS or Use PaintBBS. If you do not have a draw flag, contact an administrator for details on how to accquire one.

My picture didn't post / I wasn't able to comment, and lost my picture.

Your picture is not lost. Go to Administration > Recover pics to recover your lost pictures. Your information is still saved on them, including the time it took for you to draw it!

Why can't I immediately see my updated picture when I re-touch it?

We really have no idea. It could be just the browser cache retaining the former picture; to resolve it, just refresh your page.

I'm using the Animated NoteBBS / OekakiBBS. So how do I start animating?

Just draw as you normally would. The applet will automatically track your movements and store it in a file!

What is an automatic user delete?

If it is set, at a specific date, all users who haven't logged in within the specified time will automatically be removed from the board. To prevent this from happening, ask an administrator to give you an Immunity flag, or log into the board on a daily basis.

What is considered an Adult Picture?

An adult picture is anything that is only suitable for 18+ viewing. This includes nudity or anything of a sexual or explicit nature. If you are drawing such a picture, please tag it with an adult flag when posting your comment. If you cannot view adult pictures and would like to see them, you must enter "Administration" and edit your profile, and make sure the "Adult Picture" checkbox is marked.

JPEG Support? Why?

One of the new features in OekakiPoteto 5.x is JPEG compression support. An owner might enable this in order to reduce server bandwidth; picture quality should not be affected too much, except for non-antialised lines.
