!!Fluttershy ## Mod 11901

We had good reasons to allow him to come back - reasons that are very personal to him, it's not our role to reveal them.

Since he has been unbanned, 1 month ago, he has not been of any kind of trouble. If he ever is, he will be instantly banned again, rest assured of that. But as it is you're simply hating on someone without giving them a second chance. Be the better man.

The Vulture!3bqGraff0U 11903

I didn't even remember who he was until you mentioned it, myself. Sort've ironic really.

He seems to be a rather lowsy troll-type who likes to throw nostalgia everywhere. Annoying, but not against the rules.

autoupdater randomly works now and im not sure how i did that. i forced it to update a few times and then it just started on its own. the page does not refresh with each update, but if i post it will force a refresh making me load everything all over again and deleting my namefields.

>i cannot post [with the QR] unless i attach an image, else the error message for a blank post comes up.
That should be fixed for Opera now.
No current plans on trying to address the other issues. I'm not sure what would cause most of them besides the browser just not supporting a lot of standard stuff, or maybe imageboards are hard on the platform's memory limitations.



Option to change military time Anonymous 11809[View]

Could there ever be an option to change the post time from military time to the 12-hour AM/PM time most people use?

Like when I see a post that has the time "21:33:41", I don't instantly know what time that means because that's not what my clocks say. It's just a minor inconvenience.

Underage b& Anonymous 11451[View]

Hey, I was wondering what your "policy" on underage users was (meaning under the age of 18, assuming that's the legal age of being an adult in Canada like it is in America).

Like if someone openly admitted in a post that they were underage, would they be banned just for that? I'm just wondering because that's what they do on most other imageboards. 4chan is particularly strict about this and they will often publicly ban underage users.

I myself am 19, although I know the thing about imageboards is that there's really no way to prove anyone's age. But anyways I just didn't know if there was some legal issue in Canada regarding minors viewing porn.

In America it's not illegal for minors to look at porn on their own, but most sites do have an "Only enter if you are 18 or older" warning (kind of like the one when you enable mature-tagged threads on here).

Just wondering how the staff deals with that.

Oh come on, it's not that big of a deal. Honestly I'd wager that most shitposters are adults who just enjoy being assholes. It's kind of like online gaming, with my experience it's the 14-17 year olds who are the nicest and best bros, and then the adults are the douchebags who complain about everything and insult you just because they can. Shitposters are just older dicks with too much time on their hands and a huge ego.

Also before you even accuse me of being underage, I'm OP, I'm 19.

So I don't know much about the founder of this site, Anonthony. I know he's a total buff badass saving America from the terrorists, and that he really likes Applepony.

But I was wondering, was he around when all the shit originally went down with /mlp/ and /anon/ developed into what it is today? Do you think he would approve of /anon/ how it is now? Or do you think he will axe it once he gets back? (I personally think /anon/ is heaven).

If it's complete spam on an unrelated topic, of course report it. If a lot of people complain about it being in its separate topic, we will intervene, but as far as I can see people just hide the thread so I don't see an issue.
Again if it bothers many /anon/ browsers we will take action. It just doesn't look like it does.

Can we stop the whole issue where people from /anon/ come to try and troll /oat/, and then /oat/ retaliates and it turns into a huge pissing contest?

It's not happening too frequently, but when it is nothing is really done about it and the only reason I haven't complained before is that it's fun to argue with them to some extent. But I don't want to come back after some months away and have the two boards ripping each other apart.

I was looking at statistics today and noticed that our traffic really has fallen off a lot and we now are lower than ponychan again.

But some time has passed and I think we have a more stable base on both sides. People aren't joining or leaving nearly as much as before.

Can we get another ponychan merger discussion going?

Completely hypothetically speaking, if this were to ever happen, what would be your minimum conditions of compromise and your preferred conditions?

Personally I feel the userbase on either side isn't really worse than the other and both would appreciate more life even if it means some may get a bit rustled.

I know this ended badly because Orange is back at CoAdmin, but that could be part of the compromise listed above.

Even if it ends up a no, I'd say its worth another shot to see if we can get this done right around when S4 comes.

Macil!/5s/Techmk ## Mod 11356

I think this thread has outlived its usefulness. I don't agree with a lot of the specific anti-ponychan sentiment (somehow I doubt each of those ban screens were entirely unwarranted).

A merger is not planned because of differences in user culture, site direction, and staffs. If any of these change, only then would it be possible to productively revisit the merger idea.

>Providing the police with anything more than is necessary

Only his posts.

The Vulture!3bqGraff0U 11328

While I think he shouldn't be banned just for being back, if he continues to make his annoying scat threads, they should probably just be removed. Besides , there's a thread for that on /anon/.

As far as Mikie goes, directly targeting him is a jerk move, guy, but Mikie does need to start taking his own advice. He constantly tells other people to stop taking things so seriously, but then if you mention Pinkie in a way unliked, he'll go off on some of the most bothersome tangents.

Any who; direct harassment (going into Mikie's threads just to piss him off) should not be allowed, but, so long as they make no reference to Mikie, his pinkie threads are fine.
Minus the scatt stuff, because that sort've should stay in their respective thread on /anon/.

Just my two cents.

It is not Macil's issue.
Macil hardly moderates /oat/ as far as I am aware.
It is the fact that many mods on this site are raging faggots, rules mean nothing if they want them to.
Which they do. Often.
Also, rules will be used against you if it works in their favor.
If you have a problem with that, either start a campaign to remove the offending mods, or leave this website.
I don't know what else I can offer you in terms of advice.
Is that clear enough for you?

Macil!/5s/Techmk 11373

I'm not sure how plainer I can be. Your posts were close to harassment, and I clarified part of the rules. I can't believe someone can fail to understand this except deliberately.

This isn't your thread, but OP barely made sense as it is, so I'm closing it.

You can only really filter Tripfags for 4chan which are low in number and all of them are pretty terrible as there is no good reason for a name or trip on that site so the people who do so should be filtered for their terrible posts, it is not going to have the same effect as it does on 4chan when done here.

Anonymous 11073[View]

Honest question, i've seen mulitple uncensored and unspoiled porn posts on /oat/ the last few days and its completely accepted by the community without complaint, left up by the mods (or they just didn't see it which I find hard to believe), and moved on without making a big deal.

It seems like the MLPChan community is ready for self moderation on this to where it shouldn't take over the board, but it seems like it should be something that is allowed since links are everywhere anyway and its not something that offends anybody.

I'm thinking just allow it but make a caveat where posting NSFW is acceptable, but derailing threads into NSFW with multiple posts is not and completely NSFW topic threads are not.

Just thinking that the number of posters who seem to like posting NSFW images greatly outweighs the ones who care. Just an observation.

So. Can sage be invisible? 4chan recently made sage invisible and it was long overdue.
By the way. "sage" is invisible and removed from your email adress after you post.
"sage i love cocks" is also invisible, still sages, and is not removed from your email adress after you post.
Basically, sage+space is nokosage on 4chan now.
And I would like that here as well.
Because sage is nice, but having it show up is pretty silly.

Two things which would really make posting for me and some a lot easier:

I'd thoroughly enjoy some kind of URL bar icon change when a thread gets new posts, like PonychanX does back on Ponychan. Makes keeping up with things much more convenient.

And, a friend on a mobile suggested adding a +10 view option for mobile users, since phones (and handheld games consoles) often have much smaller memory capacities than computers, and one may not so much need even that many posts when they're just trying to be quick from their mobile and want to save that memory load.

Well I suppose that's true, though if the thread is bigger than 10 posts I feel like you'll be missing most of the conversation if you only get the last 10.
50 is generally a nice balance. Do we have anyone who browses the site on a mobile often who has any opinion on this?

I browse the chan usually every time I'm in class.

I've always found it a bit tedious to scroll through 50 posts, since about one or two posts take up my entire moble screen. Even if I zoom out, it still fills quite a portion of my screen. I personally don't need 50 of them, that seems like quite a lot to fill up a page.

I'd say maybe a margin around 25-10 would be just fine, even for a serial thread. You can leave the 50 option, of course, if that's possible.

I just always found it difficult to get to the bottom of the page when I have to scroll through large posts on a small screen, and I just wanted to skip down to the bottom. A smaller post count would make things more simple.

I've also had issues with the auto updator, and it being a bit difficult to select the 'update now' button, since I first have to choose the +_ -_ thing, which appears next to the reply box on my phone. It keeps thinking I'm selecting the reply box, so it gets a bit annoying, and when I do get into the update options, it seems to have a hard time registering it.

That's just my opinion, though. My battery seems to drain really quickly when I'm using the net on it as well, but that might be from using the net in general. I'm not really a phone expert…

Macil!/5s/Techmk 11054

The page title shows the number of unread posts in parentheses already. If someone makes a good edit of the icon to my liking for new posts, I'll put it in. (Maybe with the apples outlined with an aura or something.)

A last-10-posts page for threads is a bit few posts. In topic threads, that's probably not enough posts to see to be able to post productively in the thread. In serial threads, you're going to eventually get more than 50 posts auto-refreshed into the page anyway. There are some technical and usability issues with mobile and large threads, but I don't think a last-10-posts page is a good solution. Actual pagination and some mobile-specific controls would be better.
