MLPchan GMod Server OP!xi8/JKFwzo 12261[View]

I seen that MLPchan has a Minecraft sever and I happen to have a GMod server that I'm not using.
I was wondering how many of you would be interested in me dedicating my server to this site and adding some pony themed content to it.
If enough people are interested in it I could have it up and polished by the end of November.
Also, what gamemode would you be interested in, it's currently running Trouble in Terrorist Town and has a small site containing rules and ban appeals/ staff applications with it's own domain.

"Unknown new"? Anonymous 12571[View]

Uhhh…what does this mean? When I refresh the thread it doesn't show any new replies.

!!Fluttershy ## Mod 12572

This happens when someone posts then delete their post.
The Watcher doesn't compute that.

Macil!/5s/Techmk ## Mod 12588

Usually it's that. If a thread has new posts you haven't seen, and more posts in it deleted than new posts since you last viewed it, then you get that message. (The watcher asks the server how many posts are in a thread, and what the timestamp of the last post in the thread was. The watcher remembers the number of posts and the last post's timestamp whenever you view a thread. If it ever gets a higher timestamp from the server than it remembers seeing itself, then it alerts you that a thread has new posts and it displays the number of posts the server says is in the thread minus the number of posts that it last saw in the thread, if that number is positive. If that number is 0 or negative, such as because of deleted posts, then that causes the "Unknown new" posts message. You can easily trigger this by watching a #cyclic tagged thread.)

Though I don't exactly understand what would cause it to get that error in a thread with no replies. That's an actual bug and I'm getting that issue too constantly when I watch the thread. I'll look into it now.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 12593

Fixed. (The watcher client and server both used to ignore the OP post in the calculation of the thread's last post time. My code had issues if a thread with one reply had its one reply deleted since the server would not ever tell it a new thread last post time, so I decided to fix and simplify it and make the OP post count, which I did on the server-side code, but I forgot to update the watcher client too, causing it to not handle threads with no replies correctly as you saw here.)

!!Fluttershy ## Mod 11905[View]

I have noticed today that mails sent to [email protected], in the past few weeks at least, were not sent to me. The matter has been solved, however I'd like to apologize to anyone who tried to contact me lately and did not get an answer. I emailed everyone I could.

Thankfully there was no big harm done, as most people either contacted me through another medium or contacted someone else. I'd like to remind you that if you don't get an answer from a staff member after a few 2 or 3 days, it is absolutely not normal, feel free to email every staff member about your issue if that happens.

/oat/ and /anon/ Relations Nogitrov 12096[View]

Alright, I think this should be discussed. Things on this chan are starting to get a bit dramatic, so I think it's high-time we had a civil conversation concerning the nature of inter-board relationships, especially /oat/ and /anon/. As things are now, they really don't get along very well. Why do you think that is?

Site round-up: Season 4 !!Fluttershy ## Mod 12264[View][Last 50 Posts]

Good day, MLPchan!
It's been a while since we've had a site round-up. For those of you unfamiliar with the process, it's a /site/ thread where those who desire it get together and talk about the current state of the site, give feedback regarding the boards or moderation, or just share ideas to better the site.
A lot has happened since last round-up, resulting in no one on the staff really having the time to make one. But with Season 4 coming soon, I feel like it's now or never.
Now let's get to it shall we?

Since last round-up, we've streamlined posting across multiple boards, deleting some inactive ones and re-purposing others, for example deleting /pic/ and allowing pic dumbs just about everywhere.
We've also got a Minecraft server, which has developed a community of its own, we are very happy about it and encourage people to visit it sometime, it's quite lively at times.
The arrival of the Catalog feature -much requested by /anon/s in particular- has made browsing boards a bit easier, along with some other things /anon/-requested (Like the Tomorrow theme which seems to be among the most popular ones).

Now, a 'news' system was proposed in the last round-up, which would allow us to inform people of streams, events or other various things in a more visible way - without being more invasive than the blotter. This is a big challenge, and will take a lot of work both on the design side and simply in terms of coding, and that's why it hasn't been done yet. We still believe this is a good idea and will do our best to make it available soon.
Same goes for a plethora of other features that were requested but not implemented, or not entirely, like some themes, or the icons next to poster names. We're only human.

So what's coming in the next few days?
As most of you know, Season 4 of ponya is coming, that means a lot of things. First and foremost, we'll have one /pony/ thread per episode. Last year we had our own stream, but it was literally always empty, so instead we will be redirecting to some of the quieter Bronystate channels. If anyone wishes to stream the episodes live just for mlpchan, you can contact me and we'll talk about it.
We will also be hosting an art contest on the day E1 is out, for authors and graphic artists. They will be separate contests with separate prizes. This is something I'd like to discuss if at all possible: So far all of those contests have ha

As far as I can tell, "…" or a % that no longer increases means it's finished uploading, and you no longer have the option to cancel the post.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 12258

Hmm, I may change the message. Trying to cancel a post that's in progress by using the button again to kill its connection is like yanking your internet cable out to try stop an email, but with less chance of physically damaging anything or affecting other network things on your computer. It's hit-or-miss and isn't really intended to be reliable.

Tom' the /♥/ bringer 12259

Couldn't it be tweaked so the "reply" button becomes a "cancel" button of sorts?

The issue is that sometimes it is discarded, sometimes it isn't, and your browser can't tell because you cancelled it mid-way.

If you're being a nuisance just to be a nuisance, you should probably isolate yourself from humanity for being a shitty human being.

I can't believe someone needs a rule specifically saying, "don't be a cockbite to other people" to prevent them from doing it. This is basically why my faith in humanity is as low as I can get it without needing to dig a hole.

Anonymous 12210

I-Is it okay to be a cocknibble?


File: 1383892563285.jpg (16.8 KB, 207x196, sweetie456.jpg)

Nibble the right ones and you'll go far here.

I think there is a discernible difference between being a nuisance and a cockbite. I wouldn't want to think of myself as the latter. Mind you, I don't think being a cockbite is against the rules either, for those who want to be one. Plenty of people have been cockbiteish towards me, for example. I think the general attitude among the staff is that if a little cockbiting gets to you, you need a thicker foreskin.

Also worthy of note, however, is that the staff frowns on cockbiting while on /site/. This is not the arena for such practices. But we're good. Cause we're not biting any cocks. We're just discussing the process.

Yeah, this shit again. Though this was not originally my idea, I'm bringing it back up.

I propose we change rule 4 of /anon/ from:
> 4. Anonymity is strongly encouraged, but you may use a name if you wish - especially if you are a content creator; a writefag, artfag, etc.

> 4. Anonymity is strongly encouraged, but you may use a name if you are a content creator; a writefag, artfag, etc that is posting content.

People insist on namefagging, tripfagging, and avatarfagging for absolutely no reason other than that they don't want to be anonymous. There are other boards for that. /anon/ is called /anon/ for a reason. I'm tired of reporting these fuckers, and I know the mods hate seeing me report them. I don't care if the board is slow, I don't come to your house and insist on wearing muddy boots even though you want everyone in your house to be barefoot.

I'm sure this won't end the shitstorm, but I think people will get a better understanding of how things are done on /anon/.

Can we get people to stop bashing on him? He left, he already had enough problems, and we probably made it worse. I wouldn't be surprised if he does take our advice and kills himself, or worse, other people because of it (I believe it was Nogitrov who actually told him that killing himself would be best for everyone, which is ironic, because he was the one calling kok a terrible person). He was obviously unstable to begin with. It doesn't help that people are still abusing him even after they drove him out and made him feel unwanted.

Good news, I fixed the issue. (Or at least one of the issues.) Opera is a bit inconsistent with other browsers in how it treats post forms.

Not having the localStorage API wouldn't cause things to break like this. (The Steam browser lacks the localStorage API for example. The code mostly deals with this, though changes in the settings menu don't save.)
