I'm assuming you mean what changes would be made from how current ponychan is run compared to the merged site?
Well, the rules page would be what's posted on /site/. https://mlpchan.net/site/res/15219+50.html
There would be a clear and more importantly present
hierarchy of internal decision-making to hopefully prevent 3 different mods saying 3 different things to everyone, which is the root cause of far too many fuck ups.
All the shit of kusaba will be replaced with tinyboard.
New /site/ will attempt to be kept shitpost / off topic free or at least to a minimum.
/pony/ will function the same.
/oat/ will function the same.
/chat/ will be the place for serials, which are distinct from generals as the former is primarily about socialising while the latter is about content.
/rp/ and /ooc/ will be merged into a single board again to see how they handle the tag system, but its open to splitting again.
/pic/ will be mlp related image dumps that you want to have stick around for longer than usual, i dont think that posts can be made with
the mature tag on that board, but any moved threads should keep it as far as i'm aware. (Pinging thony to confirm)
/fan/ will be the /art/fic/collab/ board merged into a single posting entity.
/merch/ content is going to be shared between /pony/ and /fan/ or its going to all go into /fan/, i'm not entirely sure what we decided on that.
/vinyl/ and /g/ are still undecided, but odds are they are going to get absorbed back into /oat/
Our most inactive mods will be getting axed and mlpchan mods will be coming on.
Naturally, due to the higher number of pchan mods, a "majority rules" style of working out issues wouldnt sit too well with people who have concerns about hostile takeovers, so what i'm going to try to do is weigh the opinions of everyone equally, then take into account their senority with whatever group or person in question is part of the incident. (Also bare in mind that macil would also be providing oversight)
For example. a mod who primarily works with /rp/ would have high senority for /rp/ situations but could also be biased, so an "outsiders" opinion is also valuable in this case
It's a juggling act of deciding what kind of opinion is given what amount of weight on a case by case basis, but mods are trusted to know what to do for the most part.
And, for whats it worth, just because 'thony "has no official status, position, or authority.
" doesn't mean that his opinion will be discarded if this merger goes through, he's still a pretty major part of the community that can offer some pretty good advice and direction.
Cant really think of anything else, sorry.
