I want to say thanks.
Thanks to the mods I've seen giving short mutes to non-contributing namefags/tripfags in /anon/.

I think this is a very good idea, and I would like to see it happen more often.

I urge everyone to come visit /anon/ as often as they want, just leave the name/trip/avatar back on your home board. You can namefag a little when contributing art, stories, rping, or other original content. Even then that's only if you really need the attention to stroke your ego, or for keeping things straight while rping. If you just want to hang out, drop the name/trip/avatar and join in the fun!

Once again, thanks to the based anonymous mods for muting name/tripfags. Keep up the good work.

tl;dr: Some mods are muting namefags on /anon/. MOAR! MOAR! MOAR!

I mean, I understand that tripcodes are pretentious, but if I'm just chilling out and not acting like I'm all that, I'd like to namefag.

Is this just an ingrained thing, like, I'm being a stupid tourist by not wanting to do the whole anonymity thing? I swear I'm not like that guy in that one image who tries to talk himself up and act like he wants people to know who he is.

Though I'm not gonna lie it's awfully nice to talk to people who recognize you and vice versa.

Tactical!fRainBOoMw 9195

Oh, okay, well, I just actually read the replies instead of skimming them, so disregard the stupid shit I just said because that makes total sense.


Speaking of /anon/ I had grown quite used to the feature that removed the name field for you. Is there any possibility of getting something like that in the settings or something so we don't have to remove/replace our names. It's a bit of a hassle when you are following thread in both /anon/ and /p/ad as I am wont to do.

>I've also designated that the staff should always use Anonymous tags when on /anon/ instead of their moderator name, to avoid any appearances of favoritism or bias.
I'd actually prefer if they didn't, at least not while doing mod stuff.

Can Mods start Modding with their Names? Enginejack 9111[View]

Hey, this is a fairly minor comment. But this is something that drives me absolutely insane when I see it: cases where an anonMod bans someone, or posts a comment, or makes a change of some sort.

Maybe it's for something minor, noncontroversial, or beneficial (such as this here), where using a name would be too trivial. Or maybe it's to save face in some cases where they don't want to be seen as directly responsible for their actions. But I would really prefer to know who, exactly, executed these changes, or issued bans, or whatnot. This allows for other users and I to see who exactly is responsible, allow us to direct comments and feedback more directly to a specific mod (if/should the case require), or talk about the actions of a specific mod. In other words, it adds a layer of accountability, which I (and I hope most other users on this site) place as a premium on our moderating staff. Just anything that would give me more of a hint then "anonymous mod" would be great.

Thanks for your time!

Official Board Structure Thread !!Applejack ## Admin ## 8933[View][Last 50 Posts]

Based on the discussions raised >>8646 and >>7974, we will be moving from the 'idea' stage to forming an official proposal for changes to the current board structure.

Our goal is to streamline and simplify the site so that each section is relevant, serves a definite purpose and is active and enjoyable for all current and future users.

As it stands, the proposal we most like and think will accomplish these goals is the following:
>/site/ - Site Issues
>/arch/ - Archives

>/pony/ - The Show

>/free/ - Anything Goes
>/oat/ - Off-Topic

>/fic/ - Fanfiction

>/rp/ - Roleplay
>/fan/ - Fanwork

That might be for the best. It's broad enough to accommodate >>8916's desire for "video, flash, games, software, etc.," and says more than /fan/.

!!Applejack 9092

We'll leave the possibility of re-opening /ooc/ on the table for some future point. There was a span there where there were as many if not more ooc or RP planning threads than there were RP canons ongoing, but not a big enough set of each for it to currently warrant to separate boards just for roleplaying-related threads. We can manage that by perhaps increasing the number of threads-per-page on /rp/.

Anonymous 9091

Okay, let's try this from the top:

1) All CSS served to the browser viewable via the source code. Yotsuba B:

2) MLPchan thread pages have different markup than 4chan pages. You shouldn't expect to be able to copy the stylesheet verbatim and get an identical look.

3) The code you're looking for is:
font-size: .8em;
Use of !important is discouraged because it may interfere with other settings end-users have their browser (Nielsen). Just put the modified stylesheet at the end of the stylesheet list in the page head. If two selectors have the same level of specificity, the last selector takes precedence.

Board Restructuring Anonymous 8646[View][Last 50 Posts]

It came up in another thread and I made my thoughts about it. >>8645

So I think everyone should think about it and give their input.

tl;dr the site could really improve with some changes to the boards.

Primarily through streamlining and recombining in different ways.

I know there's history and difficulty in accepting changes but hear it out and think about it and give your own ideas on how to make it better.

This includes a new name for /anon/.

Feel free to offer counter proposals to my idea, it's only an idea.
Just think about what would be the best combination so that there's less 'sprawl' and people spread out too thin, and a more even distribution of people and activity so it feels fresh and alive for everyone. I think I have a pretty good idea with what I thought of but I would like to hear yours.

Equestria Girls got its proper does of speculation and concept discussion, as befits a new 'episode' that's been teased. But until it's universally available, it's awkward to discuss the content. The comics have (or at least had) a similar handicap.

It's always been there. That 'Mature Content' checkbox is for the creation on new threads. It is visible when:

1) You are on a board which allows mature content, and
2) You are not in a thread (since you can't make a thread in a thread), and
3) You have "Show Mature Content Threads" checked in the settings.

Regarding /pic/ and /art/ Anonymous ## Mod 7974[View]

We'd like to discuss the possibility of combining the above boards into one, general image repository board.

They serve very similar function, and the line between "pic" which is supposed to just mean episode screencaps, official images and manipulations, macros and so on, and "art" which are supposed to just be for fan drawn images, isn't very big and they might serve better as a single board for the resource of posting images in volume for people to share and save, and serve to streamline and simplify the site structure with as few boards as possible.

Let us know your thoughts so we can see the users input. Thanks.

I believe a new thread would be best for bringing up more wholesale changes to the site structure, but this is a good line of dialogue.

A counter…

>/site/ - standard site issues board. Like /q/ if you actually got responses.

>/arch/ - standard site archives.

>/pony/ - I too think /show/ is a bit more descriptive, but that namechange was tried once before - on Ponychan - and the resultant shitstorm forced them to eventually change it back. I would say this should be the combination of /oat/ and /pony/. Without new episodes at the moment, and with the only difference between /pony/ and /oat/ being how "serious" or canon a discussion is, that differentiation is largely meaningless, even during seasons.

>/fic/ - standard fanfiction board as it stands right now

>/art/ - an artwork board for artist galleries, request threads, commissions, for threads to stay around long-term. /pic/ is not really useful when you consider the use of boorus and the fact that people who want image dumps just make them in more populated areas anyways so there's people participating and talking about them rather than just blandly dumping pics in a separate area.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Anonymous 8648

The problem with having separate /art/ and /pic/ threads is that there aren't enough drawfags to support /art/. That's why I suggested combining both into a single /img/ board. The opening posts alone are enough to separate artists' threads from image dumps. Image dumps should be discouraged in /anon/, though not outright forbidden. A board culture that says, "Go back to /img/, faggot" is probably sufficient.

> I too think /show/ is a bit more descriptive, but that namechange was tried once before - on Ponychan - and the resultant shitstorm forced them to eventually change it back.

While I hate the autocratic way Moot and the mods are going about things on /mlp/, a certain amount of that is necessary. Let 'em whine. They'll eventually stop. Even the horsefuckers on /mlp/ will eventually shut up, and what's happening there is much worse than a name change.

I stand by what I said here >>8642, although probably only the mods themselves know what the cultural reasons for /oat/ and /chat/ are. I don't see anything on those boards that can't be absorbed by a squeaky-clean /ot/ and an "anything goes" /anon/ — or /cess/ which is more original and descriptive. "Anon" feels like pandering. We all hate pandering, don't we? Of course we do!

> /site/ (3), /arch/ (NA), /show/ (2), /ot/ (3), /fic/ (2), /rp/ (2), /rpp/ (2), /img/ (1), /anon/ (1)

is simple and straightforward. It could be further simplified by merging /rp/ and /rpp/, but I assume they were separated for a reason. Looks like the issue is still controversial there. I don't roleplay, so I don't know and don't much care.

At some point, the mods are just going to have to let the chips fall where they may and ignore the whining.

And with that, I shall now go here:

Tournament stuff Artee!V1bM0d5Fdc 8558[View]

I'm sort of toying with the idea of opening up a new pony tournament like last year, involving ponychan (/oat/ and /pony/) and mlpchan.
On mlpchan, I can sort of trust /oat/, but it might be interesting to get /anon/ involved too.

Now a full anon board is a bit flimsy to keep track of the votes, as people can easily unload in spamming sprees. And I wonder if mlpchan might know tricks to get some control.
Like ID labels specifically for the thread, or a friendly mod who can help keep the thread clean of vote spammers.

Eh, could be worth to think off if I am gonna redo this.

In order to streamline the site and boards as much as possible and make things simple for everyone, as well as keep as few extraneous boards as possible, /fan/, after much deliberation, will be removed from the list of linked boards.

The kind of things that would have gone to /fan/ can easily fit into boards like /art/, /oat/, /fic/ and /site/, so we'll simplify things a bit.

As always, any suggestions or ideas for board structure, just let us know and we're happy to consider it for you.

>/site/ has thread derail about /fic/
>does't invite /fic/

I'm going to continue the derail, and if anyone still wants to continue the conversation we can always put a thread up on /fic/ about it.

The topic has been brought up many times in the past (up to and culminating in the Migration), so there's no harm in revisiting.

IRC really is one of the big contributors to a/fic/cionado apathy. I've left it for the time being, and I don't plan to return unless entirely necessary.

I could pound my firsts and shout a lot about how /fic/ has aged from its vibrant youth, going from a daring adventurer unafraid to speak its mind to the little old man sitting on his porch who can't stop yammering about his bowel movements, but I won't.

The fact is that we've lost a great deal of zeal and drive over the lifespan of the board. Not that it can't be renewed. Not that we need return to anarchy. It is simply a matter of having things to discuss, which has been lacking lately.

And why so few things things to discuss on the board?

We don’t need a Tulpa General any more than we need a Paranoid Schiziophrenics Club thread or a Suicide Pact Central.

I am no prude or moralfag. I am the first one to flip the fuck out when someone wants to censor stuff on account of offensive or obscene content.

This isn't censoring something obscene. This is quashing an entire support structure for romanticizing and encouraging a very serious and potentially self-destructive issue. It's no diffeent than if we were to, say, shut down a Don't Vaccinate Your Kids campaign, or forbid people from trolling with "kill urself faget."

And no, this is not an "it doesn't hurt anyone else" kind of situation. The thread HAS and CONTINUES to actively encourage its members, and curious outsiders, to participate. If enabling someone with the necessary sickness to potentially join the "club" isn't provably causing harm, I don't know what is.

I know that all of you are quite functional, intelligent, and self-aware, so I will give this message directly to you tulpa owners:

You don't know if other people reading your thread are going to have experiences as positive as yours. You don't even know if -you- are at risk for serious consequences, and you don't know if yor biases are keeping you from seeing consequences that are already there.

fuck your psychotic coping mechanism. Find real help.

Not that many visit it on a regular basis, but aside from not even being able make threads on the site's board "/moon/" (this sites board for persons banned to still be able to post, for some odd reason) is suffering yet another, and this time less aesthetically pleasing, problem.

It's hard to look at.

Really hard to look at. To the point where, my already terrible eyes, have trouble reading posts made on there (for as many posts as there are) and difficult to use. The theme in use, while I'm sure great in concept, falters in practicality. As such, it may benefit the board that it either be removed, or at the very least made optional, and changeable, as is the theme for almost every other board on the site.

Anonymous 8245

The moon has a "moon" or Luna theme.

/moon/'s purpose is as a ban-board. Where people who are banned can still post, if they want to finish a discussion, discuss their ban with a mod without using email or giving out any contact info, etc.

That's its purpose, not to look nice.
