Ponychan-MLPchan Merger >>>/site/15219

File: 1428192099986.jpg (69.71 KB, 800x640)

An update on the merge Ghosties ## Mod 18554Sticky[View]

After some discussion, the merger isn't happening today. The latest estimate is within the week, so hopefully sometime in a few days the move will be more adequately handled and every feature will be working appropriately.

Some of the concerns were missing themes, advanced posting functions, etc. Things that could have been easily fixed within the day, but the team has decided to hold for now to work over.

We apologize for the delay, we were hoping to have the merge complete before the premiere but the deadline has come and gone and now we can focus more sufficiently on making sure the switch goes without a hitch.

Thanks for sticking with us through this time, on behalf of the MLPchan staff I hope you guys enjoy the time that's left on the site. We'll continue updating you as the merge comes closer to live.

And Anonthony, I'm personally sorry things didn't work out today.

  • Reply notifier sound: A sound alert is played when someone replies to you in a thread- if you have the thread opened.
● Hash-tags
MLPchan allows you to create hash-tags, which are a tagging feature.
You create a #Tag of your choice like so: [#Text of your choice]This is important for some boards like /rp/ and /fic/, it is also how you mark a thread as [#Mature]. On mature boards, a button is available when making the OP to add this tag automatically.

The official mlpchan Minecraft Server. BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE 10599[View][Last 50 Posts]

Hello and welcome to the official MLPchan Minecraft server thread!

The server address is easy to remember, simply put mlpchan.net in the connection box!
1# GRIEFING: People work hard on their creations, and they don't need to come on the sever to see it destroyed! The staff will place a protection on the base of any player who requests it (this is highly recommended!), but that does not mean that unprotected buildings are open game to destroy.

This also applies to areas of land that have not been moved into by a player. Please do not try to make the server look ugly by digging random pits and leaving trees only half cut everywhere.

Do not slaughter animals that clearly belong to another player. (For insignificant farm animals, breeding them first and killing a number equal to the new babies is okay. Killing all of them is not okay.)

Do not dig one block straight down to bedrock; besides being ugly, that's practically setting a deathtrap for someone to fall into.

Do not go pour lava everywhere, fire spread is off but this still creates a hazard and makes the server ugly.

2# THEFT: Stealing from other players is against the rules. Players are highly recommended to lock their chests of valuables. If you some how get past a lock, steal from a lock that is for some reason not working, or steal from a chest that a user tried to lock but failed is against the rules, then players will be refunded their items and the thief punished.

Is the server down? Or did it update?

Macil!/5s/Techmk 18551

You have to downgrade to 1.7.5 to connect.
I haven't updated it in a while because the excellent Bukkit project which is used for all of the mods shut down some time after that, and I haven't spent the time to thoroughly investigate what newer options are out.

I'm starting work on a more permanent base, and I'm going for a dome design for the central chamber.

The top design is approximating a sphere with the inside walls, and the bottom is approximating a sphere with the outside walls. The middle one marks out the differences between the two with cracked brick.

Which version looks the best/roundest?

Can I get an ETA on when the merger will happen? This place looks interesting but the low traffic initially turned me off.

The latest I would wager would be after this weekend.

>Depictions of sex acts, genitals, female nipples, sex fluids, and underage sexualization are prohibited.

so is this an actual rule or not? especially the part about underage sexualization? can you take it down if you aren't actually going to bother enforcing it so that i can know not to post here anymore

site not working on mobile Anonymous 18420[View]

Hey so I've been trying to access this site on my phone using the exact same connection I do for my computers and the pages won't load, I keep getting a connection error. I checked and I'm NOT using incognito mode. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 with T-Mobile. It has worked fine in the past but lately it seems like I can almost never connect. I believe it is a problem with MLPchan because it is not happening with any other site on my phone.

patachu!LULZISTwQI 18434

try installing a different browser on your S3, like Firefox, otherwise it's a config on your DNS.

so i have an idea

we all know capchas are hella annoying

however, i think an idea to consider would be making any new IP have to enter a capcha -JUST ONCE-

to confirm they are real and not a bot

i think this will help prevent nasty spam

also do this >>15132

I dunno what to put here, but it won't post unless something is here.

Alexandrite!!H6elX4kPjy 18367

You don't have to worry about this now. I downloaded a flash browser to my phone, it fixed everything.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 18382

Was the catalog not working for you in a certain browser? I'm not really sure what the issue was, but it sounds like you've solved it I guess.

Alexandrite!!H6elX4kPjy 18414

I was using my Android phone's basic browser. I downloaded the UC flash browser and then it worked.

Overly Careful Kuro!bXgeUCIUnk 18354[View]

Good evening, or whatever time of day this might be read in.

Over the course of this day, when I open a page, I've kept getting interrupted by a white page claiming my browser was being "checked" by, what I assume to be, the DDoS protection.

This has shown up four times to me already today, while I don't remember ever having seen it in the past.

Is this something to possibly be cautious about for some reason, or is it a normal occurrence and, as long as I don't get stopped by it I shouldn't worry?

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 18360

I'm sure it's nothing to be concerned over, but it's better to be safe than sorry anyways.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 18383

CloudFlare does that sometimes by its own will. Do you have cookies or javascript disabled? Enabling them may make that happen less often.

Kuro!bXgeUCIUnk 18390

No, I don't have anything disabled as far as I can see.

It's ultimately harmless, and only really gets annoying when it happens when I make a post and it ends up discarding it, but if it's just a run of bad luck I guess it's something I'll have to live with.

So, what do we want this new site to be?

Not talking about the name or anything, but what sort of "mission statement", manifesto, or ideals should guide us so we don't end up directionless and just a community.

Should we do things to try to bring the amount of pony here up? Should we be laid back and just let the community decide?

I think this needs its own thread

Merger Proposal !!Applejack ## Admin 15219Locked[View][Last 50 Posts]

The staff has been talking about what we could do to make this place a little more fun and help it grow. We have many active and dedicated users, but we recognize that we're not growing quite as we once were. We've come up with a plan that we believe to benefit everyone involved.

The Ponychan and MLPchan staffs are proposing a merger between the two sites. MLPchan was created in response to Ponychan policies of the time. We believe that since then, our differences have decreased, and those that remain are worth setting aside to unify the community. (See >>16137 for more information.)

The proposal you'll see below was composed by the staff members of both sites, who all had equal say and opportunity to discuss, suggest, edit and review all the things which went into it. And while collectively we came to agreement in principle on the matter, neither of us would go forward with such a change without bringing the community into the discussion beforehand to make sure our belief that it would be agreed to as well by the majority was correct, and to hammer out more details and concerns or suggestions for making it a reality.

We all know many of you care deeply about this community and would want the best for it, and we will do everything we can to address everything you bring up. Please remember that this is a /site/ thread for a serious discussion - remain civil and open-minded so that we can have an effective conversation about the matter.

The details of the proposal, as written by the staffs:

Site structure
"Ponychan.net" would be the name of the site.
The site's current servers and web host will be retired, and the site will be hosted on the dedicated server currently employed by MLPchan.
Kusaba will be slain, and MLPchan’s codebase will be used, with all of Ponychan's current themes and functionality added.
Both Ponychan and MLPchan archives saved and merged.
