Modified dice system to implement, well, stat modifiers Griffith!2JFduv62yo 6491[View]

I noticed that the dice system can only roll a dice, and you can't, for example, go [1d20+5] for a +5 stat modifier in the case of a dice based RPG. This would be a useful feature to implement for those of us doing such RPs, and I've seen a few in /rp/ including one in which I am participating.

The #Cyclic tag was never meant to let a thread bump forever - as it is, autosage limit is still at 250 images.

As requested, the bump limit on /rp/ is now raised at 550 - making cyclic threads bump forever. If this doesn't fit the /rp/layers, please post about it here! ♥

Staff addition !!Applejack ## Admin ## 6520[View]

As you may have noticed, during some of the European hours our staff coverage is less than during the typical peak U.S. hours. With !!Rarity and !!Twilight being our resident Euro mods since !!Fluttershy's move to the glorious Western Hemisphere from smelly old France, our strong level of coverage for both sides of the world has shifted heavily to the West.

So after deliberations on the right candidate to fill a needed slot in coverage as well as bring experience and ability to the role, we've added to our staff. With all Mane 6 name's chosen (as well as that gaudy background pony !!Trixie), and since this individual is acquainted with the wild and random fun of /oat/ primarily, he's chosen the tag Discord.

So without further ado, please welcome Steven Magnet to the team.
Steven brings quite a bit of moderating experience to the table - first as the well-known former !!Spike of our sister site Ponychan, and then with administrative experience as admin of Stevenchan, and founder of GETchan.

seems the script runs out of memory while indexing /rp/, so basing that it does it alphabetically, /rp/ and /site/ may not be searchable.
I've played about with .ini's but no joy yet.
But otherwise, indexes should be complete (roughly) and updated daily, and every other board should be searchable atm, testing will confirm.

sup /site/.

I have an idea… well it's sort a site issue. i don't know.

anyway, i sometimes see that users get annoyed with auto-played thumbnails.

so, I suggest maybe adding adding a feature in the settings menu to allow them auto-play or not.

Kinda like how pchan and whatever Kusaba X style chans use.

Because I think it's cool when the .gifs animate in the thumbnail. it's entertaining and fun to watch!

So yeah, just an idea, haha.

Site Roundup - Season 3 Wrap Up !!Applejack 5880[View]

We made it! We made it through the third season. Despite Twilicorn and C&D's and Equestria Girls.

Now that the final episode of Season 3 has aired, it seems a good time for our next /site/ roundup. It's been about two months since we last did this, so there should be plenty to talk about.

How did we do during the season, as a site? How did the staff perform, good and bad?
What could we improve on, and what did we do well that we should keep on doing?

And also, of course - what ideas have you had for the site, during this time? What suggestions, changes, etc, have you considered but weren't sure about making a thread for?

As for what we'd been doing in between the now and the last roundup, there was certainly a lot of technical things happening. Much work done on our servers and backend both to mitigate attempts that were being made against us, and to further streamline and pretty up our coding. The special #cyclic tag was created and implemented for recurring and large threads. We initiated and participated in a fun Team Fortress 2 tournament with other MLP imageboards. We'd like to plan on perhaps other video game tournaments - things like League of Legends or others. We're still poking around at the idea of a Minecraft server, that hasn't been forgotten either. MLPCRadio has grown from a simple idea for a text thread to a full fledged podcast put on Youtube. My thanks to all the members of it's staff who have worked so hard to create something from a single spark of an idea. A couple of new themes were added, and we're working on adding a few more you've made (and any you'd like to create.)

Remember that we have our Steam group available to you (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/mlpchan) and twitter feed (https://twitter.com/MLPchannet) to follow, as well as a tumblr (http://mlpchan.tumblr.com/) available for your use, and a deviantArt group for artists and pony art fans (http://pony-after-dark.deviantart.com/).

Unnecessary thread movement 6358[View]

I'd like to make a small request. This mostly pertains to /oat/ but I figure should probably apply to any board with an established community.

Basically, if a thread is made on a board about the board itself or it's individual posters, it seems odd to me to move it to another board that has nothing to do with the topic.

On /oat/ for example… if someone makes a thread about a particular /oat/ poster or addresses /oat/ as a community, it seems unnecessary and pointless to move it to /chat/, even if it technically isn't about a pony related topic. I just don't see the logic in these types of thread movements, since all it really does is kill the thread.

So can this please stop?

Yes, I do realize that. Again, "if it is made." All it takes is someone making one, even you, and boom,; it gets stickied, you guys can be off topic all day long at each other and have fun in the sun forevermore. Same as if you make a proper serial thread, except it won't get a sticky. And no, I'm not missing the point, you're just apparently not willing to listen to what I'm saying. /oat/ has a remarkable amount of leniency applied to it, and that's a wonderful thing as I've said multiple times. It even allows for derails into completely non-pony stuff as long as its a natural motion and not a hostile takeover of a thread.

However, just flat out allowing people to make threads that have nothing to do with ponies in the silly funny pony board is going to make it stop being a silly funny pony board and turn it into basically another version of /chat/. Yes, when those threads get moved, they don't make much sense on /chat/; all the better reason not to make them in the first place. Or, make a serial like /pony/ did when they wanted to be off-topic. Or maybe even get people to branch out and stop posting on one board and one board only, though that's got a snowball's chance in hell!

Either way, there are rules in place on all boards that allow you to make serial threads on-board for easier access if you want which let you accomplish anything you could do by making a bunch of threads about /oat/ posters; it's just, for some reason, no one on /oat/ is taking advantage of them. And there's no reason to restructure how things operate on /oat/ when all the stuff you need is already there.

Moving away from synchtube The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 6353[View]

This is something I've been thinking about for a while. This latest change is just the last straw.

I think it's time for us to consider moving our streaming activities to another site.

For those who don't know about the problems I've had with synchtube:
Servers disconnect frequently, forcing users (including the host) to reload the page to reconnect. There is no indication you've been disconnected until the vid you are watching ends and the next one does not begin.

Playlist information getting cleared. It's safe to assume that if no one is on the channel for more then a few minutes the playlist wont be there when you get back. This isn't much of a problem if you have an account, as you can just save it to your account playlist, but it is a pain.

Unscheduled maintenance. Problematic because streams are usually scheduled for a specific time and informing people of a delay is difficult, esp if you do not know who long the site will be down and the site is going up and down repeatedly. Also due to timezones the windows we have before people are unable to come are very narrow.

Finally this new update that requires registration to view channels. There is no need for it. Synchtube works fine with unregistered users. All it does is create another thing people must do to view a stream, making less likely that new people will just drop in.

So what are our alternatives? I'd like to be able to keep streaming stuff directly from YouTube and I'd like keep to a simple drag & drop system like what synchtube has.

I streamed all the time during Season 2 (most actually don't know you can stream livestream inside synchtube). Anyways, Synchtube has always had these problems (except for the playlist one, which popped up I think sometime mid last year), movies and ponies.

It seems that the more people you have watching one stream, the more probability you'll have for it glitching. (my friends and I use to call it Derpytube due to it always derping out) People with bad internet will be kicked from the chat all the time and if you're the host.. it may kick everyone out of the stream until you refresh. So it's not just the server on their end, it's also our end as the user. Combine those together and.. it can be bad. They do need better/more servers for sure though.

There's not that many people running the site (or at least last I used it), so problems will pop up. However, I do believe there is a twitter you can follow of theirs that'll tell you when maintenance will happen.

So as you said though.. you'll just have to deal with it.


>movies and ponies

Synchtube has shut down. The letter on the main page is here.

This threw a wrench in the eurotime time stream I'll try to get a Watch2gether Channel up as a quick fix for the main one this evening.

I also think it would be nice if we sent them a thank you via our Facebook or Twitter.

The letter on Synchtube's main page mentions releasing as open source, which is nice of them. Depending on how hard it is on the servers it could make a great site feature.

Could you standardize the harassment rule? In my opinion it's too unspecific which makes it easy to abuse. Let's say that if someone makes more than 2 unwarranted posts at somebody they get a warning and if they do it again they get an hour ban and again? A day ban and so on.
