Ponychan-MLPchan Merger >>>/site/15219

File: 1422302728318.png (169.26 KB, 331x324, 14.png)

Thread #2 Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 16809Locked[View][Last 50 Posts]

The staff has been talking about what we could do to make this place a little more fun and help it grow. We have many active and dedicated users, but we recognize that we're not growing quite as we once were. We've come up with a plan that we believe to benefit everyone involved.

The Ponychan and MLPchan staffs are proposing a merger between the two sites. MLPchan was created in response to Ponychan policies of the time. We believe that since then, our differences have decreased, and those that remain are worth setting aside to unify the community. (See >>16137 for more information.)

The proposal you'll see below was composed by the staff members of both sites, who all had equal say and opportunity to discuss, suggest, edit and review all the things which went into it. And while collectively we came to agreement in principle on the matter, neither of us would go forward with such a change without bringing the community into the discussion beforehand to make sure our belief that it would be agreed to as well by the majority was correct, and to hammer out more details and concerns or suggestions for making it a reality.

We all know many of you care deeply about this community and would want the best for it, and we will do everything we can to address everything you bring up. Please remember that this is a /site/ thread for a serious discussion - remain civil and open-minded so that we can have an effective conversation about the matter.

The details of the proposal, as written by the staffs:

Site structure
"Ponychan.net" would be the name of the site.
The site's current servers and web host will be retired, and the site will be hosted on the dedicated server currently employed by MLPchan.
Kusaba will be slain, and MLPchan’s codebase will be used, with all of Ponychan's current themes and functionality added.
Both Ponychan and MLPchan archives saved and merged.

How bout we have IP but two domains that redirect to it.

We then save the referrer in a cookie or something.

Then we read that cookie when people go to the site and it personalizes it as MLPchan or Ponychan. Also a settings switch.

Anonymous 18109

That's not really united though, that's two chans sharing the same space. I say decide on a name. How about something as simple as horsechan, is that taken?

It is what it says it is: a permissions error. Check to make sure that the webserver user account has permissions to read the file.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 15131

In what context are you trying to do this? What language/runtime? Are you getting this error in your browser or (more likely) from your server daemon? Any chance that you are on a linux system with main.js's permissions set so the daemon's user account can't read it?

API? Anonymous 15177[View]

Hey! Is it possible for there to be some sort of API used with the site? I know that tinyboard doesn't have an API, but a fork of it does (vi-chan). How difficult would it be to implement an API and/or upgrade to vi-chan?

But it's not an 'upgrade' to the heavily modified system Macil has in use here.

It's planned, but admittedly not at very high priority. Web scraping is just so easy.

Related, I literally just made this thing show posts from a thread live.

I wouldn't recommend disabling that. That would open your site up to CSRF attacks. Other sites can trick people's browsers into spamming your site if you do that.

Mobile issue Anonymous 15197[View]

Hey mods

This morning I was attempting to post from my phone while connected to the same network my home computers are connected to (so it should have had the same IP, because I think every computer in my house has the same one) and it gave me an error message that said something to the effect of "Your post seems automated, please try again".

I quickly made a post from my computer and it worked fine, same as always, so it wasn't because of any ban.

I tried again later while I was out in public, and got the same error. Eventually I decided to try posting with the QR on my phone, and when I used that it actually worked.

I am currently posting from a home laptop.

To summarize, there is basically an issue with posting from a phone if you are NOT using the QR form.

If it helps, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I was NOT incognito, because that has actually caused problems in the past.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 15202

I've just made a change that should fix it. The autocomplete feature in certain mobile browsers was triggering the anti-bot code. I'll keep an eye out to see if anyone's browsers trigger that error again.

You know our boypussy wordfilter, snickerdoodle? I propose we reverse it as well, so snickerdoodle says boypussy. Then some day someone might talk about how they're eating snickerdoodles but it'll come up that they're eating boypussy and I can laugh at their unexpected misfortune

Lisbon 15199

if you really want the opposite of greentext, < would make the text purple

Reposting this here because the /anon/ thread I originally posted it in seems to be in autosage:

Hey mod(s), I'm curious as to what your current stance on loli/fillycon is.

I know that MLPchan's servers are hosted in a country where lolicon pornography is illegal, so I'm guessing that can't be posted, but what if it's worksafe?

And what about fillycon, when it's just ponies?

I'm curious because Thony made me winner of the recent contest for a lewd lolicon story I wrote about humanized Sweetie Belle, and he has also posted links to off-site shotacon porn before, so I'm guessing he doesn't really have a problem with it...

A long time ago when we had more people, we had regular CMC threads but the mods instructed us to keep the images worksafe if they were humanized. Is that still the deal?

Might make sense to cap the number of threads that can be made in [time interval] so that thread spam gets halted early.

I didn't even know that was possible.

I saw one of my threads and I was like "What the fuck, did someone actually make this with my exact same text?"
