Some of the boards of are clop clop. I understand that. I stay away from those horrible places. But yesterday some fresh pony vag was on the homepage in the recent posts area and I saw it and I was in class and I think someone else saw it too and that's bad and nasty. Can we not have pony vag on the front page plz?

Oh hey I just thought we could simply make it so spoilered images don't show up on the homepage thing.
Even when people break the rule of mature content, they do tend to spoiler it, so that should very much limit the problem.

Hey guys.
I feel like bringing this up is really just me being a whining idiot, but why does another page load up when you click on pic related? Couldn't it easily be made to just show the entire post on the same page you are at?
I understand that this is totally unnecessary and more important things are to be worked on, but I thought it at least deserved some attention.

MLPchan won't let Canadians connect, it seems Frank 10962[View]

Every time I have this site up for more than 30-45 minutes, it suddenly drops it's connection. Upon refreshing or restarting my browser (which automatically clears my browsing data), it shows me this. And it just sits here, for 20-30 minutes. This makes it extremely hard to start a conversation or start posting in a thread, as I know that sooner or later it's just going to stop letting me post.

A tripcode is meant to prove your identity
You enter a 'password' after your name that only you know, like #ilikemudkipz, and it'll show up in your name as Anonymous !0Kjsdjhdh (or whatever random string of characters attached to said password.

Some people use tripcodes to have a certain word after their name. My usual tripdoe used to say !tHOMAS, because I am an unimaginative person.

In case you're curious, I don';t post with it anymore because my tripcode was made public, meaning anyone could impersonate me, and making it useless.

mlpchan being laggy, taking awhile to expand images, ect... Anonymous 10950[View]

This site has great coding for auto updating threads, image expansion, ect… But is it so big and laggy? Yes, I am a ex /mlp/, and I used to use a 4chan x extension for browsing that site. But even with auto updating, image expansion, ect… It was no near as laggy as this site. Could coders figure out what was causing this and fix it, or atleast tell me how to fix it via my settings?

Anonymous 10951

The site isn't laggy for me, but it goes down pretty frequently, which is frustrating. Apparently they just got Cloudfare, maybe that's why there was so much recent downtime.

Anyways it may just be your internet.

Can we ever get a YouTube video embedding feature? It's been proven that the mods can already do this, would be really great and convenient, so people didn't have to click links having no idea what they might be really clicking.

Voice Acting 'General' !!Fluttershy 10860[View]

Now, I'll try and make this quick.

We have a lot of generals, and that I don't mind in the least, I think it's good that sub communities hare given an opportunity to thrive.

However a particular thread, 'voice acting general' just caught my attention. Not only does the thread have no kind of community at all, as far as I can see, but a majority of the few posts it has is from 1 month ago, the others being extremely scattered.
Don't get me wrong, it's a legitimate thread about voice acting, but I'm having trouble seeing it as a serial thread. It feels like someone just made a thread on a cool topic and decided to put 'General' after it to attract people. Which is fine, again, if a community thrives around it, but as it turns out none did.

I'm making this thread and posting it there as well to see if there's anyone who has any reason for the staff not to remove this thread from the Serial list. Again, this doesn't mean in any way voice acting threads aren't welcome, it just does not seem to have any community at the moment.

A muting option for the OP, in case of shitposters which derail the thread. The shitposter would get muted for 2 hours and wouldn't even realize he's muted, he'd get no message so he doesn't change the IP so quickly.

There's some more things like removing posts and giving 12hour mutes, but that's already getting overpowered for the op.
And then there's restrictions for OP having this option available for only 1 day after the thread was created, which would make him underpowered, especially on this slow board.
Or the restriction of only being able to mute up to 3 people or delete a max of 6 posts, which would prove useless if there's too many and the option doesn't refresh daily.

Look at it this way. When the OP is being a crappy janitor then the quality people can copy-paste the OP's subject and create their own thread. Most shitposters don't bother creating another thread just to badmouth, plus they'd stand out too much.
It would be a self-moderated anarchic board.

One is coder: Orange would code and perhaps help to fund MLPonychan and another is Admin: They would handle the social aspect of modding and one can be a member of both.
That should keep Orange from banning everyone right?

I remember when /fic/ was trying to argue for moving here and it was kind of a mess, and them splitting into two directions pretty much killed their board more than anything else. I remember saying that we'd help them and such here however we can if they moved here (but apparently that never happened or something. sorry guys), but that if they did come they -had- to get their shit together first. That didn't happen, and it predictably divided into two diminished camps.

I have more or less no confidence in the communities ever being brought back together, and in all honesty I don't see how because MLPChan has become a sort of mishmash of cultures from other places now rather than the thing that splintered from Ponychan back then. The original culture that took up root here is muddled and gone, for better or for worse, and what's left is something that would want nothing to do with Ponychan. And for a lot less good reasons than the people that originally came here at that.

I expect both sites to sort of drift along after Ponies finally end, regardless. Eventually, though, people are going to get sick of paying for hosting and they'll have to go away.

It will be a sad day

The Vulture!3bqGraff0U 10809

I may be wrong, but I believe the problem with /fic/ is more that most folk just use fimfiction or something like that. Easier to search with, filter out this and that, find a specific character. There's not a whole lot of reason to go to /fic/ unless you are looking for a completely random story.
>>10802
The original folk wouldn't want anything to do with Ponychan anyway.
Most left Ponychan with a large sum of embitterment.

Most left Ponychan with a large sum of embitterment.

Hence why I said the current population has a much less concrete, valid reason to flail their arms at the mention of Orange and Ponychan.

Regardless, quite a few have gone back or crosspost at this point.

This thread https://mlpchan.net/anon/res/189692.html about LiveSmutAnon's comic series was spammed with hundreds of Let's Play and WWF posts, completely unrelated to the thread topic. A moderator endorsed this in-thread as acceptable silliness.

Spamming, raiding, and "Disruptive behaviors that prevent others from engaging in a thread" are explicitly outlawed in the written rules. What if any rules are enforced concerning off-topic dumping? Is it kosher for anyone to post at length on any subject they please in any thread they please?

Sit on hands moderation. BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE 10737[View]

Back when this site was first created the idea of user moderation worked well enough, drama was around but not enough to a excessive amount, now that the site has grown and the diversity of our users has expanded self moderation can no longer work and no longer can this sites staff sit on their hands.
Back when Scat anon was around our staff allowed him to do as he pleased which was to harass a poster for his own amusement, eventually staff members stepped in but gave underwhelming responses to the problem which allowed him to force Mikie for a small time to leave the board until finally be banned, but only was so because of collective user demand of something that should have happened way before the users would need to do such as that.

Now today /oat/ has a somewhat of the same problem problem with different users.
Almost everyday if not everyday there has been fighting and massive thread derails focused around Toybox for about transgenderds and sometimes different reasons.
Although Toyboxs responses escalated such fights like jumping from 0 to 10 when one of her enemy posters make a hostile comment about the controversial topic or attacking an anon in full force who has just arrived and does not know much about Toy or her condition, but what is clear to me is that most of these are not started by Toy.

Some of these anons may have been wronged first by Toy as she lashed out at anything around her when these were happening but the ones who follow to each thread she posts in shining a spot light on the posts she makes and them mocking them in some way forces the derail are the real problem behind this drama.

I will not be going into detail about about the trans argument or my views on it and neither should anyone who responds to this post as we have hear the argument over a thousand times and it makes no progress.

This problem has more users involved and for different reasons so the same answer would not work and I do not suggest the banning of the people involved, but this cannot be allowed to continue.

As said at the beginning our chan has grown, our community has reached a point on where we are to divided to settle and it will only go on. We need our mods to step in to stop these derails, to stop the true derailers of each individual threads that attempt to continue this endless fight.

Looks like it's outlived it's usefullness, seing how everything /pic/ does, /anon/ and

looks like it's time to make like a Chineese baby girl and abort it.

Tom' the /♥/ bringer 10784

It was barely getting any posts, /pic/ failed to find a community within MLPchan. The threads were there, but honestly, boorus are just so much better that barely anyone was visiting the board too.

It was our desire to keep /pic/ as a hidden board when we did the big board changes a few months back, partly because, well, it's still a huge database of pictures, and partly because if we ever get a large demand for that board to come back, it's possible.

As it is, pic dumbs are authorized on /art/ for art things, and on /oat/ and /anon/ for about anything pony.
If there's a large demand for /pic/ to come back, it can be done, but it needs to be significant. /pic/ was at 0 posts per week before we removed it.
