Left for /pone/ shortly after its creation and settled. Came here today to see if there was any fun April fools related stuff going on.

I really feel feels of being some sort of traitorous asshole to have left our once blooming halls in search of greener fields, so this is what deserting feels like.

I'm sorry, /anon/, I am so sorry.

Unfortunately, there's your answer(>>512326) The reason I came to /anon/ in the first place was because I value freedom more than just about any other thing in communities I frequent. Even if the half-man-half-troglodytes that mod PC wouldn't spill over to /anon/ I would still, by definition, be a ponychanner. And that's a burden I'm simply far too much of a faggot to bear.

Although I miss running CYOA's here, and I feel like less-than-shit for abandoning the Lyra one mid-way through I don't want anything to do with ponychan, no disrespect to you guys, or Anonthony. It just leaves a vile taste in my mouth.

I don't get it, but whatever suits you I guess. Anonthony/the mods have discussed a dozen times that Ponychan isn't the hugbox it used to be, and /anon/ won't change (/oat/ probably won't much either).

I'm not trying to seem like a douche but your decision to not stay because of the merger seems pretty autistic.

I'm leaving too when it happens. It's a certain principle at work here.

Bullshit, it's still a tripfagging, circlejerk wastepit. The mods are utter dicks and act like autistic retards, and as much as muh fandom contribution is thrown around I'm pretty sure some faggot's just trying to make a conglomerate.

Anonymous 512334

Trips confirm. I might as well pack up and leave /anon/. The last thing I want is some autistic mod banning me for some stupid reason.

Well the KKK mainly stick to barbecue parties and harmless get-togethers now-a-days but I still wouldn't want to be associated with them.

The PC stigma is prevalent with just about anyone from the fandom that started out on chans, when you've spent years building on a monolith of refined, utter incompetence and displayed your complete and utter lack of the most basics of moderation skills for so long, yeah, no wonder people look at ponychan the same way they do radfems. That's not an image that can be scrubbed away with a "oh that? We're not doing that anymore."

>I'm not trying to seem like a douche but your decision to not stay because of the merger seems pretty autistic.

Oh make no mistake, it is very autistic. But I'm also very nitpicky when it comes to my image boards and /pone/ just rubs me the right way, the moderation, the content, the speed even has just enough shitposts that it makes me mad enough to start pissfights but not enough shitty posts to make me get up and give up like with /mlp/,

On a somewhat unrelated note I feel like the people here get along too well, I know it sounds childish bit I love a good internet argument and it seems that, even now, the anons here are way too good in the art of ignoring shit they don't like. The absolute ridiculous length people will go in order to settle the most petty of differences amuses me so and it's one of my favorite things to do regarding chan culture, we don't really get that here anymore.

My apologies but I doubt it, I'm already fairly invested in a CYOA on /pone/. I'm already, 4 threads in, I think, slightly beyond the point of no return.

So is /oat/, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun.

>The mods are utter dicks and act like autistic retards

Do you have any proof of this? Last I heard there's only been one ban in the last month on Ponychan, most of the mods are horsefuckers like us, they have confirmed that they will not ban you unless you very obviously break the rules (they've been posting here)...


> I feel like the people here get along too well

Did you ever think that maybe a lot of the people here just got over the edgy hate machine attitude of 4chan? I love arguing but not over every single dumb shitpost. /oat/ argues a ton.

I used to be /anon/-only but eventually I started posting on /oat/ and I value both sides of the community, I got over acting like an autist about tripcodes, if I don't want to deal with drama than I ignore it or hide the thread...it's not that hard.

Well that settles that. /anon/ gets the oldies from 4chan and /pone/ gets actual writing talent.

I wouldn't call it an edgy hate machine attitude, not even /baphomet/, which arguably is the most edgy board on any imadgeboard shares a hivemind of hatred, they even had a tea party last week and everyone from ponyfags, to weebs, to trannies, to people dedicating their lives to ruining others were having a grand old time together, seriously though, "Hate machine" is just as telling as "rape culture", it's a buzzword used by people who take other peoples' jokes serious. I don't know what tripfags has to do with anything but I don't mind them, assuming they provide content while posting, or post in a place were tripfagging is the norm.

I'm flattered, really, but i'm only scratching the surface when it comes to the general comprehension of the English language, I want to git gudder, need to git gudder before I can allow myself the comfort of telling myself I'm a complaint writer.

I don't even have the energy to argue about this anymore. Everything that can be said has been said. If people won't even give the merger a CHANCE, then fuck 'em. They obviously don't care a whole lot about MLPchan anyways.

Really lovin' the new tattoo, Anonthony, that's some baller shit right there.

/mlp/ is a lost cause, the mods were caught with burnt hotpockets when some private chat logs showed them actively destroying content and threads they didn't like. Some users will put up with anything I guess

>>yfw the /anon/ mod for the merge is the biggest contributor to Horse Cock Worship general here

It's more of ponychan's general rep and all the mountains of shit they've done in the past that makes them nonredeemable, for me at least. Then again, it is your chan, I'm just spouting my opinions on the internet, on a board I hardly visit anymore. You're an experienced guy, you run it how you like.

Anonymous 512348

I'm giving the merger a chance, but I'm surprised that even more CYOA writers are considering leaving than just me and one other.
I'm not really sure how many people actually want my CYOA though. I'm a shitty writer.

Seeing them on /meta/.
It seems from your post you've already given to the the imprints of outer influence. I personally enjoy the culture that was bred, immature as it is, it's what amuses me.

M8 if you're gonna do it, do it already. You people have been talking about it for months.
But I suppose that's the end of any anon conversation regarding it, since Anonthony tends to mark the end-all. No matter what is said the opposing opinion will always be the losing side. Well I suppose it makes sense, it's your site. We're just a minority; let the faggots have their conglomerate.

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 512356

look, it took time. we finalized agreement on it like 2 months ago, and it took about that long to get it all worked out technically and it should be done with in a few days.
and yes, there isnt much to discuss. it's been set in stone for months as you just said, so im not sure why the continual doomsaying goes on. if some pantywaist sissy cant handle this they're better off pissing-in-the-ocean-of-8chong-shitshilling or cowering under the protection of 4chans sjw hotpocket munching faggot mods. i no longer care about any of that. ive done my best and put in place the best possible balance of people to run it and quite literally find myself, and the conversation i see them having, direct opposite to the kind of shit we all saw in the leaked logs mentioned earlier. and no lmfao pone is not a viable alternative for jack fuckin' shit.
its happening, its going to be fine, and its going to work, and no amount of handwringing or shilling for anything else is going to change that. im not begging anyone to do anything, and frankly the great irony is that despite the worst examples from pchan that people always bring up or drag out caps of, in the end after all this its still better and more of a community than the le edgy rebellion m-muh swj chan and no-fun-allowed cuckchan both.

Anonymous 512358

I dunno dude, the community has given itself its own conscious at this point, of course it's going to be veiwed as better quality by poeople such as yourself. What you're doing it pretty bull, the fandom does not need a merger or cooperation, it never needed it or deserved it. You're getting mad anyways; I offended you. Let's agree that we will always disagree.

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 512359

Watching literally everywhere circle the drain of apathy, stagnation and entropy, makes what I am doing and have done the opposite of 'bull.' Honestly, I'm one of the few people willing to do -anything-, let alone really spur any interest or activity or curiosity. Yes, I'm mad. That's who I am. I am always mad. Especially when my work is offended, and since I've never been proven wrong about any prediction or hunch I've ever had or made. My instincts are almost always spot-on, and I see this as the only viable means of reworking the communities of both sites into something tenable, while the other alternatives are literal shit critiquing shit. I can be called many things, but sage would have to be among them.

As g guy who's used all big 4 (plus a couple off-brand ones) pony image boards If you're gonna go around and act like a turd less people will like you, and in the process, your chan. This fandom isn't dragging in rows of chanfags like it used to, the pool is limited and talking shit about all other chans but your own and pc wich you want to take over your chan soon is a pretty shitty thing to do when you're an admin.

No, i'm more referencing blaming the user-base. The actions of an Anonymous poster is his and his alone, the problem people have with pc is their moderation and their reputation, an Anonymous poster has no rep to speak of. Kinda how people aren't mad at britbongs but Cameron, they're not mad at the North Korean people, but the regime, not the illiterate cannon fodder foot soldiers in Africa, but the warlords controlling them, not sweds but their Socialist hivemind government. i believe people are a result of their environment, and the majority of PC's moderators were assholes.

Just wanna say, I'm glad we can have this discussion, Anon, it's one I've been waiting to have for a while, have some cute horses

The ddos attack was a result of some guy on a pony thread on /b/ getting a Get and the /b/tards flipped shit, /pone/ was raided as well, that's something that comes with the territory. Again, how are the users of /pone/ responsible for what the users of /b/ did to the users of mlpchan? I don't see your logic, 8chan isn't a hivemind, if they were, why would they raid themselves?

But the majority of ponyfags that roam the different chans today all, essentially originates from the same place. There's no ivory tower here, you need to look no further than your RP and fart thread to find autistic retards on /anon/.

>I'm sorry but how does the actions of /b/ represent /pone/ again?

I visit 8chan pretty often myself, like almost every day often, but I won't deny that the entirety of that site is very much caught up in itself and every board within the top 10 pretty much circlejerks in this incestuous notion that they're better than everyone else because they're viewed as "more extreme than 4chan" by normal people.

They're full of elitists because they're the rejects of various chans, so they're gonna stick up for each other, even if they're not part of the same board.

that's exactly what this merger will be, people are gonna fuss and fight about it until it actually happens and then after a couple months people won't even remember how big of a deal it originally was, except for a few autists who are obsessed with the bad history of Ponychan
