Thread Watcher Anonymous 10568[View]

Is it really necessary for the Thread Watcher to do an alert every time you watch/unwatch a thread? When I'm removing a large number of threads from the list it's really annoying to have to click out of the window that pops up every time.


I like it.

Is it really THAT horrible for you?

Anonymous 10735

It's not like it ruins the site for me, but its unnecessary and there are less intrusive ways to handle it than an alert.

We need to delete any and all "Please Ban Poster-X"
"Please Remove Poster-X from the site"

That kind of pointless hate towards any poster, no matter how bad said poster is, creates a harsh and loveless environment for everyone where people just hate-box and, at worse, dictate which posters are "allowed" to be here.

I don't want posters to just be having echo rooms for their hate in /site/, I'd rather not have hate based echo rooms.
But the worst idea is allowing people to believe that they control the site based on their whims, or even worse, actually give them that control.

Also, if you want to get yourself perma banned, first, that's bad. But second, you should just talk to the mods over emails instead of posting here on /site/. So those threads shouldn't be around either.

I've only ever had a problem with one major shitposter/avatarfag/namefag on /anon/, you probably know who I mean but I'm not gonna use his name because he doesn't deserve the attention anymore, for the most part he seems to have learned his lesson.

I agree that people shouldn't be banned just because other people don't personally like them/what they post, but in some cases it is very clear that what a poster is doing is just not okay, at least on certain boards.

Ex. someone spams, I don't know, let's say /rp/ with gore, I report it, wait a few hours, it's still there, then I would come here and make a thread about it (I don't actually go on /rp/ but that's just an example).

I'm a huge proponent of ignoring/hiding things you don't like, such as subjective tastes in sexual fetishes.



Meant to add that's the whole point of generals, consolidating all posts about a specific topic/fetish such as Milky Way, unbirthing, Bat Pony etc. into one recurring thread so it doesn't overwhelm people.

That was the whole problem with the namefag I mentioned, he came into any thread he didn't like and derailed it by dumping off-topic images and calling us all faggots when he should have just clicked the [-] box by the OP.

Being reported hundred of times, getting into arguments, and witnessing several posters call me the worst of the lot, I think that it’s acceptable to say that I am unwanted here. I suspect that most would agree that I am beyond repair.

Recently I get more and more of these. When I try to post I get a 520 error screen then I get redirected here. When I get this I ask around if mlpchan is down but everyone seems to be fine and it's only effecting me. I looked up error 520 and found this:

One potential cause could be that your web server is sending a response header that exceeds CloudFlare's maximum response header size. This could be the case if you're sending an abnormally high number of cookies for example.

I'm not much of an IT guy so if someone could translate this for me I would appreciate it.

Before recently it only happened when I tried to post 2 posts in different threads at the same time.
I'm using windows 8, mozilla and have pppoe internet connection

Any ideas for trouble shooting?

A final complete solution to the sporadic short downtime is coming soon. It's just been a pain since the server host support staff has working hours that do not match my timezone's waking hours very well. There may be about an hour of downtime when the repairs happen, but then that should fix the issues for good.

Deleting and reporting posts Anonymous 10379[View]

Okay two things:

1: I always clear the password field when I post, because if I don't, my browser (Firefox), gives me that annoying "Do you want to remember that password for this site?" every single time. But then when I go to delete a post (which I RARELY do), it says that I can't because the password isn't correct.

If I did the same thing on 4chan, the post would still be deleted. I don't know if it has something to do with IP addresses, but I really wish I didn't have to use an actual password to delete posts here.

2: When you report a post, you get automatically redirected to page 0 of whatever board you were on, which is frustrating if you were in a thread. Can this be changed? Also, it would be a lot easier to report posts if there was just a report post button right next to every post, instead of having to check the box and scroll down to the bottom.

That is all, this isn't super urgent but I just figured I'd suggest it so MLPchan can be the best it can be.

Macil!/5s/Techmk ## Admin 10393

Wouldn't it be easier for you to just respond with yes or never to the "Do you want to remember that password for this site?" dialog once instead of clearing the password field every time?

(That sounds like a bug or questionable design decision at 4chan if posting with an empty password field still sets the post to that password, or if it allows posts that have no passwords to be deleted without a password. I don't want to emulate either of those things, but I do want things to be as painless as possible.)

Agreed, it's on my to-do list now. (I'm thinking of making a drop-down box in the post header like 4chan X does.)


I'm getting kind of annoyed with the password field too when it comes to deleting posts.

It's suddenly become a problem where it wasn't before. What changed?

Macil!/5s/Techmk 10439

You're going to have to describe the problem you're having.

Question... Anonymous 10416[View]

I own two different computers in my house, a laptop with a wireless internet connection, and a desktop with a wired internet connection. I am pretty sure they both have the same IP address, which is why I'm a little confused about something–on some other websites, such as 7chan, if I watch a thread on one computer it is automatically watched on the other one as well, whether it is off or on. This makes sense because (from what I understand) imageboards keep track of things based on your IP address, not which computer you're using (if they do have the same IP).

But with this site, it's like I have a completely separate version on each of my computers. I often have to search the catalog to find threads on one computer that I already have watched on the other, and even if I have the same threads watched on both of them I don't get update alerts at the same time either.

Like, for example, I'm currently following the Milky Way general on both of them, and for the last week or so I've mainly been using my laptop. When I finally got on my desktop a few minutes ago, it told me I had more than 70 new replies to that thread even though I had already seen them all over the past week on my laptop.

I am just wondering if there is a way to fix this so it's more convenient, like is there some kind of way to synch both of my computer's internet settings or something, or am I just screwed?

They're both PCs if it matters, and my ISP is RCN.

We understand that tournaments like this can really drain one's pockets, and even if it doesn't, it wouldn't hurt to have some funding for extra stuff.

Quick tech question Scootapuff!saU4Tsd4dU 10366[View]

The reply notification tone seems to have stopped working for me after having updated my iPhone's software to the latest version. Is this just my phone in particular being quirky or is this a known issue? Is there a fix potentially?

Anonymous 10371

I'll hand this over to macil, but the report sound is loaded with javascript, so honestly I'd be extremely surprised if apple changed the way the phone handles JS

Macil!/5s/Techmk 10392

Does "(You)" still display on the links replying to you? It's just the sound that doesn't play? You didn't disable it in settings?

Maybe your browser just failed to download the sound file. Can you check that both of these links can load in your iphone's browser? (I think the first one won't actually be able to play on the iphone, but as long as at least one of them works you should be good.)
After making sure the links can load, see if the reply notifier sound works in the site again.

I'll test myself with an iphone eventually.

Scootapuff!saU4Tsd4dU 10412

Yes, the (You) still appears for me in the posts where people reply to me. And yes, I still have the tone enabled.

/anon/ spamming Anonymous 10363[View]

Can we do something about whoever is going on /anon/ and just spamming the shit out of any fetish thread they don't like? It's getting a little ridiculous.

!!Big Macintosh ## Mod 10370

be explicit in the report and if they are actually spamming I'll deal with it as soon as I see it.

Anonymous 10376


Something seriously needs to be done about this. It's mainly that "Grump Anon", it started in diaper threads all the way back on /mlp/ but now he's here and he's invading other fetish threads as well.

It's the same thing every time–he calls everyone in the thread faggots and dumps the SAME DAMN images from that show or whatever it is over and over.

It's beyond shitposting, it should be considered spam, and he (and also the people who have started calling themselves his followers) NEED to be banned until they get the message that they cannot just keep doing this.

One of the main reasons people moved from /mlp/ to /anon/ was so we could have our fetish threads in peace (and uncensored).

There is a hide button for a reason, it's very simple, but it's still not enough to discourage all these people who come into threads they don't like and say "What the fuck is wrong with you people?" or "You're all sick fucks and I hope you die,". I DON'T GIVE A SHIT, MIND YOUR OWN GODDAMN BUSINESS.

I know part of the beauty of /anon/ is the lax moderation but all these people who intentionally derail threads need to be stopped.

/oat/ needs some more quality control please 10317[View]

Here are some threads I found just now that I think need some quality control.



Why are threads like these showing up on /oat/ lately and not being redirected to /trash/ or /anon/? I'm pretty sure /oat/ wasn't designed for discussing scat and fetishes, and definitely wasn't designed to be a place where name/tripfags could shitpost inb4 laughs all they want outside of /anon/, and by shitpost I mean #bloggan, #whinan, #attention, #trollan, #spewing crap threads made specifically to lower the quality of the /oat/ board itself, and to cause shitstorms. You could argue that these threads are not made by the user for those purposes, but they definitely don't reflect the board culture, which used to be quality threads that engaged the community in a positive and SFW manner. I don't see those here.

It feels like it's been like this since last month. I understand we have gained an influx of new users, but the board culture of /oat/ doesn't seem to be given the same respect and quality control moderation /anon/ is being given – that said, /anon/ is a great board and I have no problems with it. I just wish /oat/ would get the same treatment lately.

I think Anonthony did a LOT of the damage control on /oat/ and we need someone to replace him. As a dedicated reportfag, I'm getting tired of bringing this stuff up and nothing being done and no one "seeing the reports" after I make them, even though a simple browsing of the board is all it takes to see these threads that stick out like sore thumbs, especially if you're an older member of the MLPCHAN community.

Am I the only one who feels this way? If I am, I'll shutup and just hide half of /oat/'s threads.

I still can't believe you of all people is asking for a sfw environment after the shit you've posted here

You earlier said that "/chat/ was made for threads like that!" in response to someone calling you out for posting that stupid dildo unboxing thread, but no, it fucking wasn't. It certainly wasn't like that during the earlier days of the site, but by the time people such as yourself and /b/ and friends and a bunch of older ponychan members took up root there, it had become a board about the illuminati and shooting blacks and having sex with each other.

Boards change over time not depending on how fast moderators handle reports,but depending on what sort of people come and use them. What you are asking for is not going to be fixed by readding /chat/, or even changing how fast people handle reports. it's a natural alteration in how the board works born from the people that use it that coincides with both pouring slow-ass /chat/ into /oat/ and the mass of 4chan generals and shit that came over here roughly around the same time. And the only way you're going to get that /oat/ culture back is removing a fuckton of people, which isn't going to happen because said people have basically changed the atmosphere of the board at large with their presence.

tldr; accommodations have been made for pretty much every party that has ever come here, based on a desire for a higher population, a desire for a feeling of heightened freedom and because in essence a community dictated -by- the community is what this board was created for. The culture that certainly at one point existed there no longer exists. You dug your grave, now sit in it.

Anonymous 10377

'/oat/' is /chat/, with a little bit of pony (/oat/) content mixed in for flavor. That little bit of pony content is not ruining /chat/.

Shitty posting may well be ruining that board, but the only solution to that is good posting so that there are actual gems to dig up.

"They should honestly just make sages invisible. That way people who actually are using the sage properly can just do it, while those using it as a way of "downvoting" will probably resort to means such as putting it in the subject or name field, if at all. So it would cut down on the attention whore sagers, and easily root out the ones that are using it for the purpose of making their disdain public."

The sage isn't a downvote button, so I second this.
