So, I’m not really sure what to write but… here goes… I’ll try and make it short and simple but doubt that’s going to happen. Near the end of December 2015, I decided that 2016 would be the year to do new things, things I’ve always thought about doing but never really did. One of those things was being a staff member at Yaoi-Con (doing it again this year!) and another was backing a yaoi game on Kickstarter called Seiyuu Danshi. When the game was finished fundraising, a forum was created. From there, I met a couple of cool peeps. @AayChan, @Jai the Timelord, @pupcuz1, Lazy_Scorpio, @Kian, and @wurpess. We had a lot of fun roleplaying (Aaychan literally lived on the forum) and from there, the IT person who helped develop the forum created a Discord server. Soon enough, we all migrated to the server, excited to hear each other’s voices and such. Due to complications and drama from that particular server, I decided to leave and make my own server that would be different. And thus, the Yaoi Consortium was born. A lot of memorable things happened over the year… Aaychan’s Studio, issues between a Kohai and a member, a TON of DOTA, Kirin’s rant about his ex and then the ex joining the server… Jai being a helicarrier on the ship chart… and so on! Those were some of the things I can remember as I write this. Either way, the server has grown a lot and for those of you who have been here since the beginning, our server could have been a lot bigger than it is now… considering the amount of pruning I’ve done. However, I wanted people on the server who were active (granted, we all have personal lives) because somewhere out there, there is always someone who needs a place to belong… to talk to somebody when they’re feeling upset, sad, or happy. A place where people could have fun and feel respected simultaneously… a place where people can be themselves and connect with one another around the world. All in all, I’ve made a lot of connections and friends from people across the world because of the server. I’ve also learned a lot of things. Decisions that I’m happy about. Decisions that I’ve made mistakes on and can’t take back. And things that could have gone better perhaps. Either way, I hope that all of you are proud to be on the Consortium as we continue to grow and develop this server into something special. By that time, I really am curious and hopeful that some of the faces that I see now will still be around. Please know that while I am the admin of Yaoi Consortium, take a step back and just remember that word you always call me. Senpai. While that word is open to interpretation, I want you to think of that word as someone you can talk to when you have no one else. If I happen to be online and you feel like you can’t talk to somebody else, come talk to me. I’ll always be here for you as a person. Anyway, thanks for reading my long speech… I knew it wasn’t going to be short even though I said it was going to be. One final request from me to all of you: please hold me accountable for being the best admin I can be for you. But also understand that I’m a human being as well… and hell, I will make mistakes from time to time but I will do my best to own up to them and hold myself accountable as well. I am always open to feedback… otherwise, how else can I improve? Thanks again for reading peeps and have an awesome day/night!

A little bit over a year ago when I became a backer for seiyuudanshi little did I know how funding for a yaoi project would change my life so much. I didn’t have many friends at the time and I was and still am going through some things and due to my domestic situation I was not really able to be myself. So, in the seiyuudanshi forum, I met several cool people such as Suracis (asshole senpai), Aay-chan (I’m trying my best with grammar here), pupcuz, Kian, and others. After some time hanging around in the server (ask senpai about the Random Fun thread) we migrated to a server dedicated to that project. Then, after a series of events YC was born and as the first member, I was able to see this server grow into something wonderful. A friendly community where everyone supports each other and share common interests and passions. A server where one can forge friendships with other individuals and perhaps even form lifelong relations. Even though in the course of events within YC, things have been up and down time I believe through those times the bonds that I see within the community stayed strong, maybe even became stronger. I would like to thank @Suracis , @AayChan , @wurpess , @Danare , @Akira , and the rest of the staff (I don’t mean to cut off your names, there’s just so many people) for your hard work in maintaining this server for it takes quite a bit of dedication and I consider you guys as my dear friends and I am grateful for sharing experiences with you and I am looking forward to what’s to come. I would like to thank @Tabbycat 😽 , @den , @Qam , @Levi , @Blood&Icecream , @Lotus , @Kian , @Metal(Bells)teeth9 , @Pyromaniacal Chandelier Cat , @Tuyo , @Rainy RainDrops , @wolf , @🐼Pandahugs🐼 and everyone else (again, too many names) for being part of the community. I’ve watched this server start as a sapling and it is now growing into a fine tree. My hopes are for this server to grow into a forest :heart: Love you all.
I wandered in and eventually started talking and yall are cool. And helped me have a place tp vent about my asshole exbf. At least until he wandered in too.... (sorry about inflicting him on you guys Dx). I may not talk all that much but im still here occasionally. One of the few servers im in that arent on perma-mute even! XD Also Senpai is secretly a squishy dork underneath the layers of assholeishness. Like an angry onion wrapped in a cactus with a gooey center. XD
A year ago, I was hanging out with @Jai the Timelord, @AayChan, @Suracis, and @wurpess on another chat here on Discord when Senpai said he made a new group. This turned into a blessing since our original group ended soon after the creation of this place. I made a lot of friends, including @Pyromaniacal Chandelier Cat who is one of my best friends if not the very best of them. I made some discoveries about my gender while here, which gave me a safe place to be myself. I know that I am not on very often anymore just because my job wears me out a lot, but I would not change a thing other than being on more in this last year.
Yaoi Constorium changed my entire life. I've met people that I wouldn't have met if I was anywhere else. This place is also the place where I met my boyfriend so Yaoi Constorium is amazing place and I love being being here. The community is amazing. Keep rolling on!
So, I stumbled across this server on reddit and was like, "hey, I've got this discord that I don't do shit with, so I can try this." Joined. Was scared to death because I haven't been a part of a chat room or anything in like 5 years. So I had no idea what to do. But I found lots of nice people that grew into great friends! I can't imagine not having you guys to talk to anymore and I'm so happy I met you all and I can't wait to see where the server goes!
Before I joined this server I was just a nobody. Now, I'm a nobody who joined a server
Ty consortium for the hentai 🙂
I'm bad at this, but YC is a great and unique server. YC has helped me stay sane during my various attempts to find a better job then evil CVS and is also always entertaining. I'm glad to have meant a lot of great folks here. Thank you for making such a comfortable place and congrats on the one year anniversary!
love this place and great to be here... since february 2017 which was recommended from nashi (my long time friend) and was a blast being here. The activities i participated and friends i have made are awesome. and welp thats that. peace out no need of special thanks to particular people cause everyone over here is dope and special.
About a year ago, I was alone, isolated, with very few friends. I had time for nothing but work and I was lonely. Through a long story that I won't bore everyone with here, I met @Suracis , @Jai the Timelord , @wurpess , and @pupcuz1 and we ended up on a discord server together. Though that server didn't survive, The Yaoi Consortium was born out of it, and I've been here ever since. You guys are my friends and confidants when I have no one else to go to. You make me feel like I matter. I can be my asshole self here without fear of being hated. And through a bunch of convoluted crazy events, I have to thank Yaoi Consortium for bringing me and the love of my life, @wolf , together. I love you guys like family and I hope we hang around forever. Special thanks to our @Kohai (Moderator) and @Shihai (Staff) who work their butts off to make this a safe, inviting place for everyone. And I never ever ever do this, but I'm posting a link to my latest cover, dedicated to YC. >///< https://soundcloud.com/azii-covers/rain-stops-good-bye-azii-cover
I really am glad to be part of this server. You guys have helped me through a low when I joined the server beginning of this year. After I had reached a state in which I felt like waking up in the mornings didn't hurt as much anymore, talking to people on this server helped me reach a new high. (: I know that, no matter when, I am always appreciated in here, which is something I cannot say about many servers or communities. Super special thanks to Super Lovers, Kian, Akria, Sur, Wurp, Kuroda, Squid, Cross and everybody else in here. :heart: Oh, and happy anniversary!
A few months ago, I was in a bad place. My life at home wasn't exactly stellar, my roommate and I, the same roommate that I thought was my best friend in college, were having issues, and I felt that a lot of my friends irl were starting to drift apart. I was still struggling with all my friends from high school leaving and kind of dropping off the face of the planet, and I found myself falling back into the depression that I thought I had under control after freshman year of college. Then I joined this cool app called discord. At first I wasn't really in any servers. My friend had suggested I download it, and she was the only one I really talked to. I was curious to see if there was a server for yaoi, so I looked it up and it was then that I found the Yaoi Consortium. I was shy at first, and didn't really talk much because I was nervous that no one would like me. And here I am today. I have made so many wonderful friends and memories, and it's thanks to this server that I've started feeling like I'm important to people again. Special thanks to my super awesome friends @Astral , @Kian, @Tuyo , @Qam , @Jai the Timelord , @wurpess , @Eve’sTeaGarden , @🎄Chocolatte🎄 and @🎄Manly Kuro🎄 for being the greatest. And a very, very special thanks to @Suracis for creating the server and being a great person in general. You guys are awesome! Happy 1 year, and here's to the many more years to come
I love everyone <3
