So, I keep getting this error everytime I post.
It's fine as soon as I F5. It continues to load new posts after that, but if I actually post something, it always does this?
How to fix?

Chrome. No add ons.
Happens largely in a cyclic thread and less on places like /oat/ on threads with maybe 15 posts.

I don't know if this is still active in the bug list, but here's what I know about this issue:
1) Browser-independent (I've had it occur in IE 10 and Firefox 24, 25).
2) More likely to occur in long threads than short threads (makes sense that a /rp/ regular would encounter it, but I've had it happen in generals of over 300 posts).
3) More likely to occur if the page hasn't been refreshed in a long time (e.g. wake computer up from sleep mode, browser still open, refresh, 200 new posts).
4) More likely to occur on slow connections (no new ponies in the boonies).

Also, I haven't had this issue while posting (I rarely post in long threads), but occasionally on retrieval.

I'm guessing that the Ajax request times out after a certain interval (the joys of HTTP) even though the data isn't completely transmitted and the retry request only fires a certain number of times (once, if at all) even though the box doesn't update when it stops trying. Like King said, F5 updates the page just fine, so I wrote it off as a novelty.

If the posting request makes a call to the update function after inserting the new post, the issues might be correlated.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 10303

This makes me think it's usually the connection timing out.

Normally when the auto-updater updates on a thread with no changes, it gets a short "http 304 not modified" message. When the thread gets new posts (including your own), the full thread html has to be downloaded. For large threads, it's larger and has a higher chance of timing out than others.

Requests launched when you manually refresh a page with F5 probably have a higher time-out value than AJAX requests, which would explain why refreshing would be more likely to fix it than hitting the update button again.

I have a few ideas on how to address this issue that I'll work on when I can.


I do notice sometimes after my browser (Firefox) has lost and re-gained an internet connection, I have to click on the "Update" button for it to actually work. I'm not really clear what's going on here, but I'm pretty sure it's something browser-side that stops AJAX from working on a page after so many failed requests until you interact with the page again in a certain way. This might explain some of your #3 issues specifically.

Maybe there should be a button you press that makes it so you can't see names and trips? That way, the namefags and tripfags can still have their names, and we'll just block them.

Probably this was already stated by someone else.

It would be nice to have the opprtunity to use quick replies without having to delete every time the qoute link. What I'm talking about is that there is currently no way to start a quick reply without a quotelink in it. So something like 4chan's ctrl+click to have a quick reply with a clean text field would be very nice. Just sayin.

Poopy pants. BatBane 10150[View]

We've had some fetish threads going around in /oat/ for a small bit now after our friends from /mlp/ moved in, and I have seen some posters complain about them both off and on the site wanting them move to a different board, not allowed, ect.

I am against not allowing them on /oat/ but I don't see why a middle ground can't be found.

Would squeezing these pony fetish threads into one serial thread on /oat/ work for the people who like to post these things and for the people who don't wish to see them?

I mod by report.
If its not reported I don't touch it. (sides from obvious rule breaking) Less is often more when it comes to modding boards like /anon/
I'm also not the only one who watches /anon/, and as far as rule enforcement, I'm almost certainly more lax. I've only muted like 3 people.

As for koklord and grump anon, I'll keep an eye on them.
Remember to take off your name if you're not contributing. I don't personally mind names, but, that's why I'm not reporting you.

There is hugging in >>>/anon/139531.html

Please please please put a stop to it. Ponychan has been shit for ages, /mlp/ has become shit since the scruffening. I have no place else to go. /anon/ doesn't have to be an 'internet hate machine' but please nip this in the bud before /anon/ is a full on hugbox.

I think this should be dealt with swiftly, with a short one day ban, but an actual ban, not a mute. I understand board culture changes, but this shit is cancer I can't believe I'm using that word unironically that leads to eternal ponychan hugbox pity parties.

It's only the second time I've ever reported a post/thread. I think it might be the first, but I can't remember If I actually reported the other (completely unrelated) incident or not.

Please based mods.

The problem i that people give those people attention instead of simply reporting them

Anonymous 10338

People acting sympathetic/empathetic towards each other in a serious way should not be against the rules.

Unless it's just a thread with le leukemia face and ">tfw no gf" as the comment, or a generic "I have no friends and hate my life but for some reason I haven't killed myself yet" then yeah warn them I guess, we don't need that shit all the time.

But a good feels thread is nice from time to time. The whole purpose of anonymity is to be able to express difficult things without immediate harsh judgment.

Attention whores (people who use names/trips for no reason) are a real problem, especially people like GrumpAnon who basically just make it their mission to shit up threads they don't like when they could just hide them.

I want to be able to confess difficult things on this site sometimes and not get 20 responses of "ur a faget" (as long as it's relevant to the thread), but we also don't need /anon/ to be /r9k/ 2.0.

Could someone here with tripcode explorer or whatever, make me a tripcode?

One that says Bunny (just find a bunch that have Bunny at the start and throw them at me in an email, as posted in email field)

That would be very apreciated as Bunny is now taking over from me . I cant download tripcode explorer unfourtunately as I use a tablet and it wont work.

Ohnone last thing, it has to be in the old tripcode style , the basic numbers/letters/$ymbols , I cant copypaste with this so the newer one with the hyroglphys etc wont work.

Again, only if someone is nice or bored enough to make menone. Thankyou ^^

A fun type of board 10122[View]

so i was thinking. hear me out… we should have a shitposting board. you know, nothing serious. something like a /s4s/ type thing. where can make GET threads, post silly images and stuff.

and have funny word-filters and maybe something like this http://i.imgur.com/vNoqHu3.png

posted in imgur because i have to have a pic of pinkie for the OP. it makes me feel good.

but yeah! i think it'll be fun and maybe some funny original content will come from it.

Hey so um I've got two things that aren't really related to each other, one is an issue that seems to be happening right now and the other is a feature recommendation.

Issue: I think the watcher is broken, in the last few hours I have been not getting notified of new replies to any of the threads I am watching at all (and there have definitely been new replies). Normally there would be the (5) in red next to watcher at the top right but it seems like it's broken for me at least.

And the other thing is regarding spoiler images–I was wondering if there could be a feature that could automatically reveal all spoilers including ones tagged #mature, I know this probably sounds retarded but I get anxious when I see the spoiler tag on an image, I'd rather just see the thumbnail instead of having to hover over the spoiler tag and possibly be surprised with something gross or weird. I mean I don't have a problem with seeing NSFW images, I only browse this site at home and I always have mature threads enabled but it would just be cool if I never had to see the spoiler thumbnail hiding an image while browsing.

Anonymous ## Mod 10041

nope, that just means that the those images were spoilered manually, and thus wouldn't be affected by the mature spoiler option
I'll ask the sysadmin about some changes in the mature code that could make this a non issue.

Banners on Mobile Anonymous 10037[View]

Thee appears to be a slight formatting error with the new banners. If I had to guess, they're set to a fixed width instead of one relative to the page size. As a result, on the mobile site they stretch the page out way past the actual content, so i have to be zoomed in to read the text at s reasonable size, which can make scrolling troublesome.

Also, the Quick Reply box can be troublesome, as my browser insists on zooming in on it when I type, so I can't see all of my text.

!!Littlepip 10038

Fixed. The banner has its max-width set to be the screen width now. Its aspect ratio will be a bit squished at times, but it's better than before at least.

Anonymous 10082

Not OP, but I am also having an issue with the mobile version of /anon/.

This board seems fine, but on /anon/ everything gets squished to the left half ofmy phone screen for some reason. It pretty much makes browsing it way too difficult.

We've seen the effects of splitting boards into smaller and smaller sub-communities before, and it frankly kills the activity of the boards in question, both the new and the old. Our mission statement largely prefers streamlining as much as the site as possible compared to over specification and division.

We'd like to keep the content where it's being created to promote further creation and activity.
