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:http://mlpchan.net/site/res/8646.html
