the fact that they're NSFW implies that the option has to be selected for such images to be viewed.

Anonymous 8305

Simply stating that on the board description on the home page would be sufficient from a legal standpoint, and/or with a disclaimer when you click that link from the home page (precisely as 4chan does when you click any of the default Yotsuba boards).

Admiral Yang Wenli 8311

Yeah, that'd be fine.

hey guys, you remember the filter and the icons and stuff?

are these features still going to be implemented?

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 8187

no comment on the filter, I have no idea what's happening there, but the icons will be implemented when they can be. With the Arrival of /mlp/ refugees, I imagine both items have been put on hold.

Creating A Site Muffin Pony 6883[View]

How do you create a site like this one?

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 6884

Well, when a mommy site and a daddy site love each other very much…


The serious answer is
>you go to http://tinyboard.org/ (or similar imageboard software of your choice, you can look up their various advantages/disadvantages, but we highly recommend Tinyboard as the best option)
>you get a server
>you get a domain

Anonymous 7871

Get a domain name. GoDaddy is decent.

Get a server/hosting. You can in theory even use a phone for this, but hosting things from home is highly in-advisable. GoDaddy is also decent for smaller things.

Most servers come with Linux/cPanel pre-installed. Set up Apache/FTP, install something like Tinyboard and there you go.

Anonymous 7902

1. Set up a webserver with PHP and MySQL (Nginx or Apache are the most common ones)
2. Clone Tinyboard's git-repository somewhere that is accessible via the webserver
3. Follow Tinyboard's installation instructions (been a while since I've done it, but go to <your tinyboard url>/install.php via the webserver I think)

auto downloader Anonymous 7860[View]

is there a thread auto-downloader available?
if not, can somebody make one? i'd be glad to if i could into programming
also, i know there are ways to do it with wget but i'm talking about a program that checks new posts every x seconds/minutes

Anonymous 7866

I'm not sure if there is one for Tinyboard but it's a pretty modern and easily coded for system so it shouldn't be too hard for the right person.

I'd recommend sending an email to the SysAdmin here, they are quite responsive

Arctic!TEMPeStR9o 7900

what do you mean by auto downloader?

do you mean like, a program that downloads all images in a thread, and if there's new images, it downloads those as well?

or do you mean an auto updater, which just loads the thread without a refresh? cause mlpchan has one of these

Yeah, I know that feel. I actually used to anon post over there prior to the whole "Scruffy banning storm" because, while I love MLPChan's relaxed stance on moderation policy, honestly I felt that it was getting a little circlejerky, making it difficult to reside here. But seeing the aftermath of the /mlp/ diaspora and its heavy influence with the community on this site, well, this is exactly the place that I've always wanted, whereas the site is lightly divided into multiple topics, areas for the majority of tripfriends to reside while anons are free to hop on with them, without damaging the intended largely-anonymous community that came from /mlp/.

Though I don't feel that mod injustice is much of an issue anymore on ponychan, just something painfully exaggerated by the only community that would pay attention to them. It's the same sense similar to how /v/ has a hateboner with reddit, really.

I just looked at a little snippet of code, and it would appear that the hide thread button for the OP is nested in the fileinfo span, which obviously doesn't show up if no image was posted.

The lack of hide buttons on image-less OP posts was a feature! And I've removed it for your ungratefulness.

Is there a way to make it so all the spoilers are removed from mature content threads? Even with "reveal spoilers" turned on, all the pictures stay spoilered.

Macil!!Littlepip 7370

The "Reveal spoilers" option applies to text spoilers only.

You want to disable the "Treat mature content images as spoilered images" setting. (It only shows up if you have the mature content setting enabled.)

Xaekai!xaekaij6cg 7417


Perhaps it should be labelled "Reveal text spoilers" then, because that had me confused too.

/mlp/ input general

If you're new here from /mlp/, let's put our ideas and suggestions here for the management to see and think about.

Some of the things I've heard other refugees notice or think seem to be that it could use a few less boards, or that descriptions of what they are could clearer. One other thing was the ID system on /anon/, which some didn't like so they removed it for us, showing they will listen if the ideas are good or have a good reason. So fire away.

I think I need to post this here.
/mlp is one board. mlpchan is fucking 11 boards all for one topic, mlp. New posters have no desire to flip between all of these boards looking for activity. Long story short, copy 4chan and make one unified board and a catalogue or lose majority to 4chan… and it's probably already too late. 4chan wins because it is easier.

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 8905

We're not trying to "beat" 4chan. It's not about winning by being bigger - no one is ever going to be bigger than 4chan at anything. 4chan as a whole gets a quarter of a million posts every day.

The goal is to be a better place for people to post this particular thing - ponies and everything about them.

But, you have a point about the board structure - and that's why we're currently discussing >>8646 this thread.

/oat/meal and /mlp/ - Please read everything. !!Fluttershy ## Mod 7179Locked[View][Last 50 Posts]

As some of you may know or have noticed, we have had an influx of /mlp/ members on the site very recently. Those people are refugees from a ban storm going on their board and have chosen mlpchan as a safe haven.
Whether it be temporary of not, we are happy to welcome them, however our prime concern is how both our communities will interact, should more people make the move. We want everyone to feel welcome, and we want our community not to feel threatened.

/chat/ seems to have simply picked up in activity, and /mlp/eople look like they have elected /anon/ as their headquarters- which is fine by us. However that raises the question of /oat/.
/oat/ is our pony-related, random board. It serves some kind of a mess of a purpose, but it has its own community, that appreciates its content and enjoys its friendliness.

/oat/ has been recently getting an influx of new threads and members from /mlp/ - and this is good for the board. But some of this content might not fit the vision that the /oat/ community has of the board. Or maybe it does! This is why I made this thread, so we can discuss this before anything blows over.

To the /oat/ community I ask:
How do you feel about the 'general' threads (like the pregnant ponies general) moving to /oat/, or about the influx of new content ? Do you feel like you are out of place on your own board, or do you welcome this new content and new blood?

To the /mlp/eople planning on posting on /oat/, I ask:
Do you feel like /oat/ would be the right place for you, after being there a bit? How would you feel about moving to /chat/ or /anon/ for example, or, as some people have suggested, making a new board for you guys?

This thread is meant for the staff to know how people feel and to answer your concerns. Be honest - but stay friendly, any flaming will be disregarded, deleted, and eventually punished if you keep doing it.

The talk of merger talks, while fascinating, belongs elsewhere. Please take it to a new thread, or a thread that doesn't already have a purpose to hijack.

The topic at hand is figuring out board/community arrangement in light of /mlp/ influx. I dislike like the idea of a 'do anything' board as a replacement for /mlp/, as that defeats the entire function of topic categorization.

That's a really strange error. Do any other fields (like the report box) cause the same thing?

A buggy browser extension may be causing this. Is this 100% reproducible for you? Try disabling browser extensions until it works.

What you don't seem to acknowledge is that /mlp/ despises generals and tripfags. That's part of teh reason we go on /anon/. I don't know about your tripfags, but our ones are all attention whoring assholes. We don't like the generals either, so we would be happy to just stay on /anon/ and possibly have a board made for the generals.

In regards to: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/meta/res/139362.html Anonymous ## Mod 6980[View]

This message was composed by Hipster Brony, Ponychan's former !!Soarin mod and a respected and trusted friend of both Ponychan and MLPchan.


This is a message we never thought we would have to write. In the interest of making all of this information public and to avoid rumors from being spread, today Aurroria, also known as !!SweetieBelle, was terminated as a moderator on Ponychan and has had server access revoked. The site has also been checked by a security expert to make sure it is not compromised

In the last few days, irrefutable evidence came to light that the poster known as Aurroria was in fact an alternate name used by Zamoonda as a way of gaining access to the mod team as well as the server. This revelation was brought up through a ban on a Ponychan user, and a subsequent set of seemingly suspicious comments from Aurroria to the banned poster. This was brought to the attention of the admin of MLPchan, who looked into the issue and discovered through various methods that Aurroria's posting IP on Ponychan was a proxy - one which had been used to post as Typhoon on MLPchan, and that Aurroria's real IP was from the same ISP and city as Pendragon, leaving the conclusion that Aurroria = Typhoon = Pendragon = Zamoonda.

Zamoonda’s past behavior has included improperly accessing the staff board, creating multiple fake identities for social engineering purposes, faking a suicide of one of those personalities, attempting to bribe MLPchan with access to Ponychan's staff board, past manipulations that allowed him to improperly gain server access as well as an administrator account, suspectedly engaging in one or more distributed denial of service attacks against the site, consistently engaging in a pattern of manipulative and deceptive behavior, and now of course creating another false identity to gain server access

This information has been distressing to say the least, and in light of this information, the identities of all the other members of the moderation staff have been scrutinized to ensure that they are who they say they are. Further, we would encourage you to be extra cautious with regards to posting personal information and downloading anything posted on Ponychan going forward, as will we. We sincerely regret the grievous error in judgment we made in hiring Aurroria, and it will not happen again. We intend on using this as an opportunity to correct ourselves and improv
