An update on the merge After some discussion, the merger isn't happening today. The latest estimate is within the week, so hopefully sometime in a few days the move will be more adequately handled and every feature will be working appropriately.

Some of the concerns were missing themes, advanced posting functions, etc. Things that could have been easily fixed within the day, but the team has decided to hold for now to work over.

We apologize for the delay, we were hoping to have the merge complete before the premiere but the deadline has come and gone and now we can focus more sufficiently on making sure the switch goes without a hitch.

Thanks for sticking with us through this time, on behalf of the MLPchan staff I hope you guys enjoy the time that's left on the site. We'll continue updating you as the merge comes closer to live.

And Anonthony, I'm personally sorry things didn't work out today.

The official mlpchan Minecraft Server. Hello and welcome to the official MLPchan Minecraft server thread!

The server address is easy to remember, simply put mlpchan.net in the connection box!
Rules
1# GRIEFING: People work hard on their creations, and they don't need to come on the sever to see it destroyed! The staff will place a protection on the base of any player who requests it (this is highly recommended!), but that does not mean that unprotected buildings are open game to destroy.

This also applies to areas of land that have not been moved into by a player. Please do not try to make the server look ugly by digging random pits and leaving trees only half cut everywhere.

Do not slaughter animals that clearly belong to another player. (For insignificant farm animals, breeding them first and killing a number equal to the new babies is okay. Killing all of them is not okay.)

Do not dig one block straight down to bedrock; besides being ugly, that's practically setting a deathtrap for someone to fall into.

Do not go pour lava everywhere, fire spread is off but this still creates a hazard and makes the server ugly.

2# THEFT: Stealing from other players is against the rules. Players are highly recommended to lock their chests of valuables. If you some how get past a lock, steal from a lock that is for some reason not working, or steal from a chest that a user tried to lock but failed is against the rules, then players will be refunded their items and the thief punished.

Users are responsible for locking their own chests. If you do not lock your chest or attempt to do so your items might not be refunded. Some exceptions may occur.

3# OUTSIDE MODS: You may not have mods or hacks that give you an unfair advantage such as flying, X-ray vision, no fall damage, etc. You will be banned for using any of these.

4# KILLING OTHER PLAYERS: PVP outside of PVP areas is not allowed. Do not attempt to find ways to damage other players when you shouldn't. Areas that allow PVP will be added later.

5# PLAYING WITH OTHERS: You don't have to like everyone who joins the server or be nice to them, but do not disrupt the chat by constant fighting, harassment, or getting in the way of their activities unless they directly affect you.

Server Plugins and Commands
The server's gameplay is close to regular Minecraft, though there's a few minor additions you will want to be aware of. Most of these are to enhance the regular gameplay, or to help keep the peace between players.

Lockette: This is how a player locks their chests to keep others from taking their things. To lock a chest, place a sign attached to the chest you wish to have locked. No one else will be able to access the chest afterward. To share it with another player, add their name to the sign on the 3rd or 4th line. You can also put multiple signs on one chest to add more names, or you can also put "[Everyone]" to allow anyone to access the chest without being able to lock it themselves.

Lapis Portals: These allow instantaneous fast-travel, but at a cost of multiple solid lapis blocks. More info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKvkwrZeB7Q

World Guard: This allows us to set areas for protection. Simply request help from a server staff member to have your base protected for you and your friends. The staff won't bite!

A block logging/rollback plugin is also in use to help the staff investigate and fix any griefing.

Here are the chat commands that players can use:

* /msg PlayerName some message here
* @PlayerName some message here
Sends a private message to a player. You can use just the first few letters of their name if it's unambiguous who it refers to.

* /r more message here
Quick command to reply in a private message to the last person who private messaged you.

* /rules
Lists the server rules and a link to this thread.

* /modreq message here
Request help from a moderator. You can use this to report issues with the server (such as griefing), or to request an area protection. Your message, name, and current location will be logged in a ticket that a moderator can check later.

* /status [number]
Check the status of your modreq tickets.

* /mods
Lists all moderators currently online and in-game.

* /region list
This lists out the names of all of the protected regions that you have permission to.

* /region info
If you're inside a protected region that you own, then this tells you about the region (its name, all of its owners and members, any special flags, and its coordinates). If you're not sure if you've gotten your base protected, or whether you're inside your protection's bounds, then you can check with this. You can also pass it a name of a region that you own ("/region info mybase") for information about it no matter where you are.

* /region addowner RegionName PlayerName
Adds an owner to a protected region that you own. Owners can place and destroy blocks in the region, add more owners, and control the member list.

* /region addmember RegionName PlayerName
Adds a member to a protected region that you own. Members can place and destroy blocks in the region. They can not add or remove other players to or from the region.

* /region removemember RegionName PlayerName
Removes a member from a protected region that you own. The player will no longer be able to place or destroy blocks in the region. Note that this command can only remove members, not owners. Please contact a moderator to remove an owner from a region.

* /region flag RegionName chest-access <allow|deny|none>
Control whether non-members can access chests, furnaces, and other containers in a region that you own. The default "none" setting makes the region use the region or parent region default, which is deny. If you have a chest of free stuff in your region that you want all players to be able to give and take from, make sure to set "allow". You can still use Lockette signs to protect other chests in your region.

If you wish to add members to only part of a region that you own, then ask a moderator to create a new sub-region for you that you can control separately.

Staff
Our current staff (and in-game names) are:

Admin: BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE (Silvthril)
Admin: Macil!/5s/Techmk (AgentME)
Moderator: Tom' the /♥/ bringer (Tomtheponey)
Moderator: EMF Scootaloo!G4/R19.jIE (foxskywalker64)
General Assistance: Toybox!HarMoNytmI (ClockworkKitten)


Feel free to ask any questions regarding the server! Be sure to report any rule breakers here and in-game. When reporting an issue, stand near the issue and use the /modreq chat command so that we can find and fix the problem.

Have fun!

>Depictions of sex acts, genitals, female nipples, sex fluids, and underage sexualization are prohibited.

site not working on mobile Hey so I've been trying to access this site on my phone using the exact same connection I do for my computers and the pages won't load, I keep getting a connection error. I checked and I'm NOT using incognito mode. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 with T-Mobile. It has worked fine in the past but lately it seems like I can almost never connect. I believe it is a problem with MLPchan because it is not happening with any other site on my phone.

so i have an idea

we all know capchas are hella annoying

however, i think an idea to consider would be making any new IP have to enter a capcha -JUST ONCE-

to confirm they are real and not a bot

i think this will help prevent nasty spam

also do this >>15132

Overly Careful Good evening, or whatever time of day this might be read in.

Over the course of this day, when I open a page, I've kept getting interrupted by a white page claiming my browser was being "checked" by, what I assume to be, the DDoS protection.

This has shown up four times to me already today, while I don't remember ever having seen it in the past.

Is this something to possibly be cautious about for some reason, or is it a normal occurrence and, as long as I don't get stopped by it I shouldn't worry?

So, what do we want this new site to be?

Not talking about the name or anything, but what sort of "mission statement", manifesto, or ideals should guide us so we don't end up directionless and just a community.

Should we do things to try to bring the amount of pony here up? Should we be laid back and just let the community decide?

I think this needs its own thread

Merger Proposal 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.
Site funding and responsibility by Anonthony, has no official status, position, or authority.
A fresh slate will be given for current bans for all but the most serious cases.

While you may notice several existing staff from both sites are not listed, it was to maintain an appropriate mod-team size, have timezone coverage, and be comprised of the more active and experienced individuals.

Inkwell has chosen to step down for reasons unrelated to this merger, although his departure has highlighted the need for a changeup in the how the site is run.

Please post only fan-created works on this board. Official show content (videos, writing, etc...) should be posted on /pony/. Official show merchandise may be posted/discussed here.

/vinyl/, /g/
Should they exist, or just be subsumed into /oat/? We feel the above structure would be best for the community, but we are looking for the community’s input.

Mobile issue 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.

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?

CP spam on /pony/ and /art/ Almost every day the same few CP threads are posted to /pony/ and/or /art/. I always report them but it often takes the mods hours to remove them, so I figured I'd make this thread on /site/ to hopefully bring more attention to the issue. I'm guessing that the spammers are ban evading but it just really bothers me to have that shit on the site. I made a post about it on /oat/ but it was deleted so I'm not really sure what the deal with that is...

opening #Mature threads that I am watching when I do this, when they have new replies, it doesn't take me to the newest unread reply, it takes me just to the top as if I had never been in the thread before, even though I've often already posted in it.

This has been happening for a while and at this point I am 90 percent certain it *only* happens with threads tagged as #Mature.

please help, it's pretty inconvenient, especially for larger threads.

Site Policy on Copyrighted Celebrity Photos https://mlpchan.net/oat/res/2565604.html
Either there isn't a policy or the mods are being fags as always and failing to remove the images that violate copyrights and privacy.
Just because this site is not in the spotlight as much as 4chan, Reddit, tumblr or Google, doesn't mean it should be allowed to host a safe haven for perverts and lulz.

Expand All Images I think it would be a really good idea to have an "expand all images" option for threads, especially porn threads. There are other chans that already have this option, and it just seems logical to have it, and it would be much more convenient than having to click every single image to see the full version.

This thread is about a RANDOMIZE thread button feature idea.

Conception.
What it does ?
It's a button on home that would give you a random thread in the entire website excluding /arch/, or it could be a button per board. How about combining these two altogether ?

Opinion/additions: Is this new addition to add to the site feature be valuable enough for the end result ?

De-pic-tion I notice the site rules say "depiction of" not "pictures of." While de-pic-tion would normally imply that it's for pictures and not for text, the dictionary definition of depiction includes "graphic or vivid verbal description."

I guess what I'm asking is, was that wording used to convey that text porn is forbidden? Not that I want to participate in text porn. B-baka.

I have a solution for quality control on /oat/ if people are worried allowing porn is the ultimate way to kill the community.

A /lewd/ board that is 18+ only. The board can be dedicated soley to discussing fetishes, /d/ CYOAs, ERP, and sexting, etc.

Even the /rp/ fags win with this.
Normal SFW discussions about politics or whatever will not belong on that board, and will be redirected back to either /oat/ or /anon/.

Basically, the board would be soley for fap-bait. Reporting users for ruining their fapping should be considered legitimate.

Can I become a janitor on /art/, please?

I want it because I'm tired of reporting and waiting for mods to delete disgusting spam - this way cleaning would be more effective.
More reasons to make me a janitor:
> I lurk /art/ pretty much everyday and I really want it to be a better place (amateur drawfag here)
> I live in a middle Europe, so I can work when mods are asleep
> as you can see from the reports I've made, I was reporting only obvious spam, so I'm trustworthy
> I will do it for free ;^)

I know that I'm not the best poster here it was one of requirements to become a mod: >>10882 , but since I'm asking only for a janitor position, I hope it won't be a problem.

It's probably been posted a thousand times, but I'd kinda enjoy a /clop/ board.

While it'd work better with a more active community, there are good things that come out either way:

>more porn is on the site at the same time

>porn threads lasts longer and can be enjoyed by more people, especially generals
>people will always be able to go onto /clop/ and grab one or to porn pics they like from the front page, instead of having to go through multiple pages of /anon/
>more different kinks and fetishes can have active threads at the same time
>room for specialization, for example there might be a glassed pony thread once in a while.
>since people can find threads easier, it'll be easier for people to post clop they have in their collection onto the right threads
>it'll be more obvious the site allows clop and NSFW content, incase we ever get mixed up with pony chan

Obviosly clop and NSFW should never be banned from /anon/ and should be allowed to remain if people prefer.

Mature Dammit Userscript I couldn't keep the cookies or whatever that keep the mature setting set, so I went and made a userscript that does it more permanently and decisively. (Hard not to notice your browser deleting user script files). If you too can't figure out why your browser keeps treating them like session cookies and making you click Show Mature every gosh darn time, then this may be helpful to you.

It's a little weird since it runs the script from the page context, not the userscript context… easiest way to get at setSettings that I could find.

http://pastebin.com/wGy4tVyA

It doesn't break any rules I think, since installing this is a conscious effort as much as clicking the "Show Mature" button is. Just gets around buggy persistence errors.

Invalid/missing HTTP referer I was unable to post on this site for a while until I figured out what was causing the error. There is an extension called Fix Url Links Redirect for Chrome which has an option box that lets you block your HTTP referer header. It's just one of the features you use to not be tracked online. If you have this enabled you can not post on this site at all. You might want to fix that since most browsers are moving to the new referer= css function, soon when people start updating their browsers they are going to be unable to post at all.

Site not remembering any of my setting/watched threads See subject, I have been using this site all day every day on both my personal desktop and laptop since last year, and it's been mostly fine, but I just had to switch laptops, and this new laptop will not remember anything I do (besides my actual posts).

When I first got on this site on this new laptop (well really it's not new, it's just not mine), I went into the catalog on /anon/ and /oat/ and watched almost every thread I'm watching on my other computers (probably somewhere between 30 and 50 threads, a lot, it took a while).

Then I logged off, came back the next day, and they were all un-watched, and my settings had been completely reset. I don't get it. I'm using Firefox (should be the latest version), the laptop is a Thinkpad with Windows 7.

Why does so much of the site require javascript? I can't browse mature content threads or change the theme without it.

I know that it isn't required for catalog view either, although, I haven't tried that here.

Is any work going to be done to improve this? I'm used to chans not having features that help thread navigation without js, but mlpchan requires js for basic features, yet it runs on the same software as many other imageboards that don't have this problem.

I'm befuddled. JS generally slows my browser down, causes lockups, and is a security risk, not that I don't think I can trust mlpchan.

Also, I didn't want to make multiple threads, so I have another question.

Is there a way to disable shortcut keys in the reply box? I haven't yet tried it with no js yet.

I feel like I had another question, but I can't remember it, although, it's not like this thread will go anywhere soon.

So I had this idea... I've been thinking about ways to get our name out and hopefully attract some new blood, and it occurred to me that we could make a digital "press package". Which I see as a concise explanation of who we are, our history and what we do. Hopefully if we send this to people who write about cartoons or internet culture they'll write about the site or ask us about things and quote us and that will draw some of their readers to check out the site.

I originally got this idea reading an article about the new EqG movie. (wish I had the URL) in which the author included a few quotations from "Sethiso; administrator of the fan site equestria daily". Seth was acting as a community insider regarding the fandom's negative reaction to the first film.

My immediate reaction was "god dammit seth, stop talking out of your ass" but after that I thought "why couldn't we do that?"
to clarify I mean getting asked about things, not talking out of our asses

/general/ board? As anyone who regularly browses /anon/ knows, we have a FUCKTON of "general" threads. Let me paint a picture:

We have recurring separate generals for all of the following: Scat, piss, farts, diapers, and "ass worship".

Then there's milky, fluffy, unbirthing, satyrs, general clop (basically massive porn dumps without a specific topic).

I don't have a problem with generals, there are some I actually write for, but I feel like they really clog up /anon/ and it would make more sense for them to have their own board.

And not only that, but some of them probably scare off newcomers, which would be a good thing if we were /mlp/, but we're not, and we need more traffic, at least a little more.

If we moved all the generals to a new, specific board, I think discussion about things such as music, video games, movies/TV, the actual show, etc. would thrive on /anon/.

And generals from /oat/ would be welcome too, such as tulpa threads or /b/ and friends.

Do you think this is a good/bad idea?

Oh and also–can we PLEASE make it so RP threads have to stay on /rp/? There's a new one like every night on /anon/, I don't get why when there's a whole board for it.

I'm an archivist for one of the roleplay canons on /rp/. However, for some time I haven't been able to properly save some of the older threads, because the thumbnails are mysteriously missing.
Upon rightclick -> reload image, it just flickers and continues to not be there. Furthermore, rightclick -> view image leads to a 404 page.
What is the problem here? Can it be fixed? Can I help to do so? If not, when can I expect it will be fixed?

Spoilers and Hiding Threads Notion 1: the subject titles of hidden threads still appear. (Except for those #mature threads that auto-hide for content, which are entirely invisible.)

This makes it easier for the user to un-hide threads (s)he previously hid.

Notion 2: Checkbox during thread-creation to automatically hide a thread, so that people who don't maximize will only see the subject header.

This helps spoiler-laden threads, such as a Game of Thrones or Legend of Korra discussion thread. Instead of having to spoiler-protect every post, the entire thread is protected!

Ban for report spam No, I didn't. I checked the relevant posts on /anon/ where someone was imagebombing the board and clicked "report" once. None of the posts would've been problematic individually, so I figured I'd have to show where it was being flooded.

Yeah, it was just a 1-second ban, big deal. But if your report system sent a notice for every checked post instead of each report click, ain't my fault and I had no way of knowing. Fix your shit instead of blaming users.

The purpose of this thread is I'm gonna post a few gifs, link it to Firefox Bug Report 926048 and then firefox users / devs can hover them some number of time until firefox freezes.

If hovering does nothing, enable it in settings in upper right.

Spoiler Filter Just a question, but is there any way we can sometime have a function for spoilers similar to how the mature content settings are like? I know mature settings have it to where the images can be spoiled or not in a global scale and I wondered if that could be applied specifically to spoiled images in general to where I could turn on or off the spoilers filter.

It's not really that important, but I don't mind spoiled images myself and it'd be nice if I could just look at all the pictures if I wanted without having to hover over it with my mouse.

Changes to Large Thread Bumping Until recently, there has been a 250 reply bump limit on threads (the exact number differs on a few boards). After a thread gets 250 replies, it would no longer be bumped to the top of the first page every time it got a reply. It wouldn't ever be bumped again. This was done mostly so that large busy serial threads wouldn't eternally dominate the top of the front page.

The result was that serial threads would spend most of their time on later pages of the index, and the main way to get to them was by following a link in the stickied directory thread. Many less than active threads are in the directory too, so it meant that users aren't able to easily discover active serial threads through the directory unless they already knew the name of a good one to look for, and the serials have much fewer new people coming into them. On the rest of the site, threads are naturally shown to users ordered by activity with brief previews of posts, and it's suboptimal that serial threads are absent from this proven system. It also means that people who frequent the serial threads are trained to immediately click an unmoving link from the very top of the board index, instead of ever exploring the page (and possibly participating in more threads too). On top of all of this, site moderators have to constantly maintain the directory threads, and impose their judgments as to what threads they personally feel warrant listing. A large directory thread takes up a lot of space, probably confusing new users, and many users probably just hide the post and cut themselves off from a lot of site activity just to save the space it takes up. It's weird that we special-case and cripple the discoverability of our most popular threads in this way.

We tried to avoid moving all serials to their own board, but I'm not sure what we ended up with was any better. The good news it that I have plans to fix it, without restructuring the boards or imposing more rules on people. The original issue was that fast-paced serial threads are constantly bumped, eternally hogging the top of the front page. Well, the simple solution is to just make replies bump the thread less often, instead of never.

Now, threads that have more than 250 replies are only bumped by a reply if the thread hasn't been bumped for a random amount of time between 9 and 14 hours. (The random part is to avoid the situation where multiple fast-paced threads that are bumped at the same time continue to bump together at the same time in lockstep forever. The random time is rolled once for a thread and is re-rolled only after the thread is bumped, as opposed to being re-rolled for each reply, in order to prevent the situation where fast-paced threads would always effectively tend toward the lower end of the bump interval range.) Large and active serial threads will show up on the front page often now, without dominating it. Large threads that are somewhat active will still show up on the front page. Large threads that used to be active and are no longer won't.

I'm also planning to eventually add a quick search feature on the board index and catalog pages, for those times you really need to find a thread by keyword that's not already in your watcher list and isn't so active. I intend to make the directory stickies unnecessary through site changes like this, and get rid of those stickies on /oat/ and /anon/ eventually.

Ponycountdown ad Hey guys, I don't usually do this, but I thought this was worth mentioning.
As S4 gets closer, I try to advertise for the site. I've been talking with RainbowCrash from /r/mlp about a partnership, and have also been buying ad space on Ponycountdown.

Now the money that goes into this is _not_ money from your donations, it's my own cash. Other sites - that make big profits - seem to want that ad space as well, however I've been holding up against them thus far. What's currently happening is, well, the ad space cost is rising as the episode gets closer, and I can't possibly sustain it myself.

I'm not going to get some big stickies going for this, this is more of a request as a member doing something for the site than as acting admin: If you want to donate to support our Ponycountdown advertisement, you can send paypal payments here: [email protected] or in Bitcoin at 14pK6z9z6jBxUnUc1jhAibd8DrJXNa6L8Q
Every single dollar will be used for the advertisement, and if donators want any proof they can email me at [email protected] to see receipts.

Ban Evading - How to Deal With It I'm noticing a lot of ban evasion lately and from the end user POV it doesn't seem like anything is really being done to counteract it. The worst part is that people are interacting with the ban evading users and it's so often and regular that I think many have forgotten these people were banned for very good reasons. I feel this only encourages them further to keep doing it.
Obviously the programming aspect of ban evasion isn't working, so how about changing things up by changing how these users are treated SOCIALLY? I'm suggesting that there should be discouragement for actively engaging these banned users via moderator intervention. Warnings to the people talking to the permabanned users would be a great way to start.

I mean, think of it like this:
>In kindergarten, the bad kid got put in time out, right?
>He sat in a corner and wasn't allowed to talk to other kids, right?
>If he tried to talk to other kids, the teacher would make the timeout longer/harsher/etc.
>If other kids came up and tried to talk to him, the teacher would warn the other kids to not talk to him because he's in time out.
>If they kept breaking that little rule, those kids might find themselves in time out too.
This is how shit works in fucking kindergarten. I mean, fuck, I've had to do this to people when I worked for a boarding school for struggling young adults that were behaviorally challenged with whatever problems like drug addiction or anger issues or bipolar, etc. (I'm talking 18+). We had a status for individuals that were problematic for the community where they were basically plucked from their normal dorm and placed in an isolated dorm totally cut off from everyone else, with no cable/entertainment, and a shitload of appeals to write out to get back into the core community. They also were NOT allowed to leave these isolated dorms or interact with anyone but my coworkers and I who were basically counselors/groundskeepers. This was an extreme deal and rarely happened, I might add, but it did happen sometimes if the person was a threat to the safety of others. If people interacted with them they ran the risk of having the same stuff happen to them, plucked away and put into their own little dorm with the same stuff to do. Sometimes we had to move those people into a motel because it got so bad (one guy started bringing meth into the community, for example), and he had a buddy that kept fucking talking to him and doing dumb shit for him, and we basically wound up putting them both into two separate motels.

What I'm trying to say is, this is shit that works in real life; shit that I've actually done to people much more problematic then anything anyone could achieve on this website. So why can't we just have this special little clause in the rule that even a kindergarten kid can understand, that talking to and interacting with known ban evaders is prohibited, and that repeat offenses may find that user facing consequences as the moderators see fit.

People are banned for a reason here. I think the moderators have good reasons to ban them. When people are ban evading they're sticking the middle finger up to the mods, and the people talking to them might as well be too.

There's also always hell banning. But I think it'd be highly counterproductive to discuss that or admit that it's done at all if it is already.

Curious Refreshing Behavior Hello, I am terribly sorry if this is common knowledge, but I've noticed a strange behavior in the Refresh Countdown thing, and I figured this would be the best place for answers.

It seems that after a few minutes in a thread that doesn't gain any new replies, the countdown will increase by a few seconds (two or three, usually, but I've seen up to five seconds). It will return to normal when a post finally turns up, or it's manually refreshed.

Again, I'm sorry if this is something that I should already be aware of, but I just wanted to make sure if this was normal, or if I'm being haunted.

Thank you for your time.

When we both have the chan open, our computers start heating up really fast.

I've had only one tab open, just this site, and after a few minutes my computer just starts getting really hot. And that's the really weird thing, is that it's a delayed reaction. It takes a few minutes for it to happen.

Also, when I switch the page to another part of the chan, it cools down again, but after a while it starts heating up again.

Spoilers So season 4 is rapidly approaching, and although I'm not one of them, there are going to inevitably be a ton of people who want to avoid spoilers but still come here.

People can certainly spoiler text and images, but I think a better idea, if possible, would be to have a #Spoiler tag for threads that works basically the same as the #Mature tag–people can make them all hidden in the settings.

I feel like this would save people a lot of trouble when it comes to spoilers. Is this possible?

Hey guys, does anyone want flexboxes in the QR? It'll certainly take less space on the screen.

.persona input{flex:1; transition: flex .25s; min-width:0% !important;}\
.persona input:focus, .persona input:hover{flex: 3}\
";
$("<style />").text(StyleQR).appendTo("body");

Then this right above where $name is defined

var $persona = $("<div/>")
.attr("class", "persona")
.appendTo($QRForm);


Then change $name, $email, and $subject so they append to $persona instead of $QRForm

Site round-up: Season 4 Good day, MLPchan!
It's been a while since we've had a site round-up. For those of you unfamiliar with the process, it's a /site/ thread where those who desire it get together and talk about the current state of the site, give feedback regarding the boards or moderation, or just share ideas to better the site.
A lot has happened since last round-up, resulting in no one on the staff really having the time to make one. But with Season 4 coming soon, I feel like it's now or never.
Now let's get to it shall we?

Since last round-up, we've streamlined posting across multiple boards, deleting some inactive ones and re-purposing others, for example deleting /pic/ and allowing pic dumbs just about everywhere.
We've also got a Minecraft server, which has developed a community of its own, we are very happy about it and encourage people to visit it sometime, it's quite lively at times.
The arrival of the Catalog feature -much requested by /anon/s in particular- has made browsing boards a bit easier, along with some other things /anon/-requested (Like the Tomorrow theme which seems to be among the most popular ones).

Now, a 'news' system was proposed in the last round-up, which would allow us to inform people of streams, events or other various things in a more visible way - without being more invasive than the blotter. This is a big challenge, and will take a lot of work both on the design side and simply in terms of coding, and that's why it hasn't been done yet. We still believe this is a good idea and will do our best to make it available soon.
Same goes for a plethora of other features that were requested but not implemented, or not entirely, like some themes, or the icons next to poster names. We're only human.

So what's coming in the next few days?
As most of you know, Season 4 of ponya is coming, that means a lot of things. First and foremost, we'll have one /pony/ thread per episode. Last year we had our own stream, but it was literally always empty, so instead we will be redirecting to some of the quieter Bronystate channels. If anyone wishes to stream the episodes live just for mlpchan, you can contact me and we'll talk about it.
We will also be hosting an art contest on the day E1 is out, for authors and graphic artists. They will be separate contests with separate prizes. This is something I'd like to discuss if at all possible: So far all of those contests have had pony prizes, plushies or some of those things, is this a direction that's okay with everyone, or would you rather have something else? Feel free to give ideas.

There's also another Season 4 starting tomorrow: The League of Legends Season 4. A few months ago we organized a LoL tourney, it was a metric ton of fun, as well as a little chaotic in how it was organized. Let's do it again, without the whole chaos thing! That's right, MLPchan will be hosting another cross-chan tournament very soon, with RP prizes for members of winning teams. The contest will be open to Ponychan and /mlp/ teams, and fully commentated & streamed. The tournament will happen around December.
Keep an eye out on /oat/, an announcement should be posted very soon. If you're interested I encourage you to start talking to friends. Season 4 starts tomorrow, and a lot of things are new, so even if you haven't played in a while, this might be a great time to give it a go.

And that's it for the site round-up, people, post in here, discuss things, we will be monitoring this very closely.
Give us your feedback, your ideas, your criticism, or just say hi to the staff!
As always, any kind of rudeness or insults absolutely won't be tolerated in this thread, don't expect any tolerance towards you if you act like an ass. Criticism is appreciated, both towards the community and the staff, but we're not morons and we can tell if someone has good intentions.

Yeah, this shit again. Though this was not originally my idea, I'm bringing it back up.

I propose we change rule 4 of /anon/ from:
> 4. Anonymity is strongly encouraged, but you may use a name if you wish - especially if you are a content creator; a writefag, artfag, etc.

To:
> 4. Anonymity is strongly encouraged, but you may use a name if you are a content creator; a writefag, artfag, etc that is posting content.

People insist on namefagging, tripfagging, and avatarfagging for absolutely no reason other than that they don't want to be anonymous. There are other boards for that. /anon/ is called /anon/ for a reason. I'm tired of reporting these fuckers, and I know the mods hate seeing me report them. I don't care if the board is slow, I don't come to your house and insist on wearing muddy boots even though you want everyone in your house to be barefoot.

I'm sure this won't end the shitstorm, but I think people will get a better understanding of how things are done on /anon/.

Kok Lord Can we get people to stop bashing on him? He left, he already had enough problems, and we probably made it worse. I wouldn't be surprised if he does take our advice and kills himself, or worse, other people because of it (I believe it was Nogitrov who actually told him that killing himself would be best for everyone, which is ironic, because he was the one calling kok a terrible person). He was obviously unstable to begin with. It doesn't help that people are still abusing him even after they drove him out and made him feel unwanted.

Like if someone openly admitted in a post that they were underage, would they be banned just for that? I'm just wondering because that's what they do on most other imageboards. 4chan is particularly strict about this and they will often publicly ban underage users.

I myself am 19, although I know the thing about imageboards is that there's really no way to prove anyone's age. But anyways I just didn't know if there was some legal issue in Canada regarding minors viewing porn.

In America it's not illegal for minors to look at porn on their own, but most sites do have an "Only enter if you are 18 or older" warning (kind of like the one when you enable mature-tagged threads on here).

Just wondering how the staff deals with that.

Anonthony So I don't know much about the founder of this site, Anonthony. I know he's a total buff badass saving America from the terrorists, and that he really likes Applepony.

But I was wondering, was he around when all the shit originally went down with /mlp/ and /anon/ developed into what it is today? Do you think he would approve of /anon/ how it is now? Or do you think he will axe it once he gets back? (I personally think /anon/ is heaven).

Can we stop the whole issue where people from /anon/ come to try and troll /oat/, and then /oat/ retaliates and it turns into a huge pissing contest?

It's not happening too frequently, but when it is nothing is really done about it and the only reason I haven't complained before is that it's fun to argue with them to some extent. But I don't want to come back after some months away and have the two boards ripping each other apart.

I was looking at statistics today and noticed that our traffic really has fallen off a lot and we now are lower than ponychan again.

But some time has passed and I think we have a more stable base on both sides. People aren't joining or leaving nearly as much as before.

Can we get another ponychan merger discussion going?

Completely hypothetically speaking, if this were to ever happen, what would be your minimum conditions of compromise and your preferred conditions?

Personally I feel the userbase on either side isn't really worse than the other and both would appreciate more life even if it means some may get a bit rustled.

I know this ended badly because Orange is back at CoAdmin, but that could be part of the compromise listed above.

Even if it ends up a no, I'd say its worth another shot to see if we can get this done right around when S4 comes.

Honest question, i've seen mulitple uncensored and unspoiled porn posts on /oat/ the last few days and its completely accepted by the community without complaint, left up by the mods (or they just didn't see it which I find hard to believe), and moved on without making a big deal.

It seems like the MLPChan community is ready for self moderation on this to where it shouldn't take over the board, but it seems like it should be something that is allowed since links are everywhere anyway and its not something that offends anybody.

I'm thinking just allow it but make a caveat where posting NSFW is acceptable, but derailing threads into NSFW with multiple posts is not and completely NSFW topic threads are not.

Just thinking that the number of posters who seem to like posting NSFW images greatly outweighs the ones who care. Just an observation.

So. Can sage be invisible? 4chan recently made sage invisible and it was long overdue.
By the way. "sage" is invisible and removed from your email adress after you post.
"sage i love cocks" is also invisible, still sages, and is not removed from your email adress after you post.
Basically, sage+space is nokosage on 4chan now.
And I would like that here as well.
Because sage is nice, but having it show up is pretty silly.

Some suggestions? Two things which would really make posting for me and some a lot easier:

I'd thoroughly enjoy some kind of URL bar icon change when a thread gets new posts, like PonychanX does back on Ponychan. Makes keeping up with things much more convenient.

And, a friend on a mobile suggested adding a +10 view option for mobile users, since phones (and handheld games consoles) often have much smaller memory capacities than computers, and one may not so much need even that many posts when they're just trying to be quick from their mobile and want to save that memory load.

MLPchan won't let Canadians connect, it seems Every time I have this site up for more than 30-45 minutes, it suddenly drops it's connection. Upon refreshing or restarting my browser (which automatically clears my browsing data), it shows me this. And it just sits here, for 20-30 minutes. This makes it extremely hard to start a conversation or start posting in a thread, as I know that sooner or later it's just going to stop letting me post.

Voice Acting 'General' Now, I'll try and make this quick.

We have a lot of generals, and that I don't mind in the least, I think it's good that sub communities hare given an opportunity to thrive.

However a particular thread, 'voice acting general' just caught my attention. Not only does the thread have no kind of community at all, as far as I can see, but a majority of the few posts it has is from 1 month ago, the others being extremely scattered.
Don't get me wrong, it's a legitimate thread about voice acting, but I'm having trouble seeing it as a serial thread. It feels like someone just made a thread on a cool topic and decided to put 'General' after it to attract people. Which is fine, again, if a community thrives around it, but as it turns out none did.

I'm making this thread and posting it there as well to see if there's anyone who has any reason for the staff not to remove this thread from the Serial list. Again, this doesn't mean in any way voice acting threads aren't welcome, it just does not seem to have any community at the moment.

A muting option for the OP, in case of shitposters which derail the thread. The shitposter would get muted for 2 hours and wouldn't even realize he's muted, he'd get no message so he doesn't change the IP so quickly.

There's some more things like removing posts and giving 12hour mutes, but that's already getting overpowered for the op.
And then there's restrictions for OP having this option available for only 1 day after the thread was created, which would make him underpowered, especially on this slow board.
Or the restriction of only being able to mute up to 3 people or delete a max of 6 posts, which would prove useless if there's too many and the option doesn't refresh daily.

Sit on hands moderation. Back when this site was first created the idea of user moderation worked well enough, drama was around but not enough to a excessive amount, now that the site has grown and the diversity of our users has expanded self moderation can no longer work and no longer can this sites staff sit on their hands.
Back when Scat anon was around our staff allowed him to do as he pleased which was to harass a poster for his own amusement, eventually staff members stepped in but gave underwhelming responses to the problem which allowed him to force Mikie for a small time to leave the board until finally be banned, but only was so because of collective user demand of something that should have happened way before the users would need to do such as that.

Now today /oat/ has a somewhat of the same problem problem with different users.
Almost everyday if not everyday there has been fighting and massive thread derails focused around Toybox for about transgenderds and sometimes different reasons.
Although Toyboxs responses escalated such fights like jumping from 0 to 10 when one of her enemy posters make a hostile comment about the controversial topic or attacking an anon in full force who has just arrived and does not know much about Toy or her condition, but what is clear to me is that most of these are not started by Toy.

Some of these anons may have been wronged first by Toy as she lashed out at anything around her when these were happening but the ones who follow to each thread she posts in shining a spot light on the posts she makes and them mocking them in some way forces the derail are the real problem behind this drama.

I will not be going into detail about about the trans argument or my views on it and neither should anyone who responds to this post as we have hear the argument over a thousand times and it makes no progress.

This problem has more users involved and for different reasons so the same answer would not work and I do not suggest the banning of the people involved, but this cannot be allowed to continue.

As said at the beginning our chan has grown, our community has reached a point on where we are to divided to settle and it will only go on. We need our mods to step in to stop these derails, to stop the true derailers of each individual threads that attempt to continue this endless fight.

The conditions of this chans creation has made the staff fearful of being overbearing and oppressive making them reluctant to do any form of punishment but having to little moderation is also a problem that must be fixed.

If Toybox comes in running yelling about how anons or whatever users and they are talking about some unrelated to her topic then she should be stopped in full view of everyone by one of our staff and if she doesn't she must be punished.
If it is an anon or some other named poster talking about her by making a post with a hidden attack towards Toybox about this issue in hopes of getting an angered response then they should be the one to have the mods come in to stop it

Both believe that they are not starting these fights but one of them clearly is and the mod staff going for the true offender will hopefully end this issue. This does not need to go on forever at some point these users while being encouraged to not start aggressive topics that they know will end in a complete shitstorm they may end up learning to live with each other.

If and when the posters who are grudging against each other in this thread meet I urge you to stay civil and to not attempt to anger the each other.

We need to delete any and all "Please Ban Poster-X"
or
"Please Remove Poster-X from the site"
threads.

That kind of pointless hate towards any poster, no matter how bad said poster is, creates a harsh and loveless environment for everyone where people just hate-box and, at worse, dictate which posters are "allowed" to be here.

I don't want posters to just be having echo rooms for their hate in /site/, I'd rather not have hate based echo rooms.
But the worst idea is allowing people to believe that they control the site based on their whims, or even worse, actually give them that control.

Also, if you want to get yourself perma banned, first, that's bad. But second, you should just talk to the mods over emails instead of posting here on /site/. So those threads shouldn't be around either.

One potential cause could be that your web server is sending a response header that exceeds CloudFlare's maximum response header size. This could be the case if you're sending an abnormally high number of cookies for example.

I'm not much of an IT guy so if someone could translate this for me I would appreciate it.

Deleting and reporting posts Okay two things:

1: I always clear the password field when I post, because if I don't, my browser (Firefox), gives me that annoying "Do you want to remember that password for this site?" every single time. But then when I go to delete a post (which I RARELY do), it says that I can't because the password isn't correct.

If I did the same thing on 4chan, the post would still be deleted. I don't know if it has something to do with IP addresses, but I really wish I didn't have to use an actual password to delete posts here.

2: When you report a post, you get automatically redirected to page 0 of whatever board you were on, which is frustrating if you were in a thread. Can this be changed? Also, it would be a lot easier to report posts if there was just a report post button right next to every post, instead of having to check the box and scroll down to the bottom.

That is all, this isn't super urgent but I just figured I'd suggest it so MLPchan can be the best it can be.

Question... I own two different computers in my house, a laptop with a wireless internet connection, and a desktop with a wired internet connection. I am pretty sure they both have the same IP address, which is why I'm a little confused about something–on some other websites, such as 7chan, if I watch a thread on one computer it is automatically watched on the other one as well, whether it is off or on. This makes sense because (from what I understand) imageboards keep track of things based on your IP address, not which computer you're using (if they do have the same IP).

But with this site, it's like I have a completely separate version on each of my computers. I often have to search the catalog to find threads on one computer that I already have watched on the other, and even if I have the same threads watched on both of them I don't get update alerts at the same time either.

Like, for example, I'm currently following the Milky Way general on both of them, and for the last week or so I've mainly been using my laptop. When I finally got on my desktop a few minutes ago, it told me I had more than 70 new replies to that thread even though I had already seen them all over the past week on my laptop.

I am just wondering if there is a way to fix this so it's more convenient, like is there some kind of way to synch both of my computer's internet settings or something, or am I just screwed?

They're both PCs if it matters, and my ISP is RCN.

/oat/ needs some more quality control please Here are some threads I found just now that I think need some quality control.

>>754616

>>755114
>>754751
>>752766
>>751919

Why are threads like these showing up on /oat/ lately and not being redirected to /trash/ or /anon/? I'm pretty sure /oat/ wasn't designed for discussing scat and fetishes, and definitely wasn't designed to be a place where name/tripfags could shitpost inb4 laughs all they want outside of /anon/, and by shitpost I mean #bloggan, #whinan, #attention, #trollan, #spewing crap threads made specifically to lower the quality of the /oat/ board itself, and to cause shitstorms. You could argue that these threads are not made by the user for those purposes, but they definitely don't reflect the board culture, which used to be quality threads that engaged the community in a positive and SFW manner. I don't see those here.

It feels like it's been like this since last month. I understand we have gained an influx of new users, but the board culture of /oat/ doesn't seem to be given the same respect and quality control moderation /anon/ is being given – that said, /anon/ is a great board and I have no problems with it. I just wish /oat/ would get the same treatment lately.

I think Anonthony did a LOT of the damage control on /oat/ and we need someone to replace him. As a dedicated reportfag, I'm getting tired of bringing this stuff up and nothing being done and no one "seeing the reports" after I make them, even though a simple browsing of the board is all it takes to see these threads that stick out like sore thumbs, especially if you're an older member of the MLPCHAN community.

Am I the only one who feels this way? If I am, I'll shutup and just hide half of /oat/'s threads.

Hey so um I've got two things that aren't really related to each other, one is an issue that seems to be happening right now and the other is a feature recommendation.

Issue: I think the watcher is broken, in the last few hours I have been not getting notified of new replies to any of the threads I am watching at all (and there have definitely been new replies). Normally there would be the (5) in red next to watcher at the top right but it seems like it's broken for me at least.

And the other thing is regarding spoiler images–I was wondering if there could be a feature that could automatically reveal all spoilers including ones tagged #mature, I know this probably sounds retarded but I get anxious when I see the spoiler tag on an image, I'd rather just see the thumbnail instead of having to hover over the spoiler tag and possibly be surprised with something gross or weird. I mean I don't have a problem with seeing NSFW images, I only browse this site at home and I always have mature threads enabled but it would just be cool if I never had to see the spoiler thumbnail hiding an image while browsing.

Thanks.

Hell even a shipping discussion ends up being better than episode discussion which is major chatter, not discussion.

I say we put a restriction on /pony/ in the form of an essay // literary argument which gets reviewed, and after that the mods keep an eye on the quality of the posts while deleting most of the shitposts/reaction replies. It would be the only place to ever do this.

Mlpchan, I come to you in need of help. I know this might be a longshot but I'll post anyway. I recently set up a *chan site using Tinyboard like you did. I barely modified it and my users are okay with that, they like the simplicity. Only think they complained about was lack of settings button where they could configure thread expansion, post preview and such. I was wondering if you could help me out a bit with that, again, I know this one's pretty longshot but since the Tinyboard community is small, you're my last hope.


Regards.

So it might be that he doesn't post her often enough (I wouldn't know yet cause I'm a mlp newfag), but it would be nice to see Summer Entertainer or whatever his name is get a link in the serial directory.

I usually miss his threads and only see reposts of caps, so it'd be nice if here I could just log on and follow that link.

I might just be being biased though cause I think he's really funny and I remember watching the Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy when I was younger, so feel free to disregard if I'm in the minority and just don't know it.

Thread Viewing Idea >CopyPasta'd from a thread on /anon/
>Image from Fchan
This is an example of a thread list feature that I'd like to see. It's based on the board you're on, and you can see everything as well as specifically what is on the page you're on. And it's collapsible if you don't care about it.

Maybe MLPchan can have one that shows the threads on each front page, organized by board. It's like an /all/ or omnibus style board, but instead of being a board, it's just a listing that you can choose to appear at the top of your page (an option in settings).

Useful features I have an idea (or moreso I'm borrowing an idea from 4chan) for threads on this site.

I think that there should be a way to see which page a thread you are watching is on, and also how many images are in it. This would be helpful because then people would know when it would be appropriate for a bump that doesn't contribute anything.

I know there are much higher priorities for new site features but maybe this could be considered later down the road. Thanks.

Finalized New Board Structure: >/site/ - Site Issues
>/arch/ - Archives

>/pony/ - The Show

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

>/fic/ - Fanfiction

>/rp/ - Roleplay
>/art/ - Art & Fanwork

We have completed our board restructuring and the new board listing is as shown above. We believe this streamlines things very well and provides the best possible clear structure with as little division and overlap as possible.

We made two slight modifications for the time being from the initial discussion; for now /anon/ will stay as /anon/ while we settle everything in from these other big changes, and /art/ will stay as /art/ with the addition of being expanded for other fanwork. We'll monitor it to see how people like to use it best.

But for now, that should be everything. We've increased /anon/'s bump limit to 400 so active threads stay up towards the top longer. We've also trimmed some unnecessary hidden boards. We've accomplished quite a lot with this restructuring in a relatively short time, and I want to thank everyone for their calm, constructive comments during the discussion phase of all of this. I am very optimistic not only for these changes but for anything we discuss in the future, based on how everyone thoughtfully considered what might be best for the site and their boards.

We'll continue to try to conduct administrative action in that manner - raising the ideas, talking to you in the threads very actively, talking to many of you one-on-one through Skype and other means if you want, and when the time comes to make a choice, firmly and clearly making decisions and going with them without endless delays.

If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, suggestions or the like please let us know.

A nsfw board Is there any chance that we can have a nsfw board? I mean one that is nsfw by default. It doesn't have to be bogged down with pron threads(especially since those already have a place) but it would nice to have a place where you can talk about questionably mature topics or post a nsfw pic casually in some thread with your response.

MLPchan Pony Icons Project Super HD 2013 #YOLO#SWAG HI everyone!
As some of you may already know, I have taken on a script first designed for /mlp/, that basically puts pony icons next to your name.
I first simply adapted the code for MLPchan, but then started adding a few ponies of my own… then a few more…
I have now almost doubled the number of available icons (From 25 to 48) and intend on adding more.

We are in the process of making this a site built-in feature, but as this may not be for right now, I believe I have some time to ask for some member input on this - and also spread the word a bit!

The script can be found here:
http://userstyles.org/styles/87605/mlpchan-namefield-pony-emoticons-pack?r=1368704436
Simply install and enter the name of the pony/dragon/bunny/other you want to have their icon next to your name! List of the words to use is in the link.
Any feedback or suggestions are welcome! What MLP character would you like to see in?

Please note I will only take canon MLP characters requests, if I put in an OC (Like I did with Littlepip and Mellow) it is up to me to decide.

I will also use this thread to warn you guys about new versions of the script as well as keeping you updated of its advancement as a site built-in feature.
Thanks to Mike and Legendary for showing me the script in the first place!

Much love from me and the staff ♥

A ponychan merger? Because last thread left me with a bitter after taste.
What does mlpchan think should ponychan and mlpchan merge into a single entity again?
Not saying it will definitely happen. But knowing there is community support can help.
What can it potentially mean?
* /anon/ or /free/ would most definitely keep existing in its current form (with NSFW content labels enabled
* a new board structure might be laid out again to accomodate both communities
* staff might be mixed.ponychan moderators in this commynity too
* Ponychan will obviously transplant its culture here too as communities mixed
* a satisfying for both staffs list of community rules will probably be discussed. (though in all fairness I don't see big differences here)
So, should mods be capable of finding eachother in the merger, would the mlpchan community be positive about the idea?
Again,I'mnot promising anything about the cooperation of ponychan staff on the idea.
An official, public discussion thread for the staffs has been opened. >>>/test/361

Thank you I'm not really used to this because mods only banned me so far. This time I'd like to thank the mod at /anon/EQG leaked thread for being there, posting just in the right time. At all the other places I would have been banned by default for causing drama even if I was right. At first it wasn't my intention to troll but seeing them raging then spouting nonsense like they knew how things worked then reporting me… I just couldn't let it pass. I would also like to apologize for exploiting their misinformation about the site's nature. It wasn't a fair play, I admit but at least it'll teach them.
On behalf of all underaged posters on this site I thank you for standing up for us.

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!

Can Mods start Modding with their Names? 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 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


←——————– ————————→

1. /site/ would be unchanged.
2. /arch/ would be unchanged.

3. /pony/ would be largely unchanged. Perhaps some more allowance for less serious topics.
4. /free/ would be largely unchanged from what /anon/ currently is. We would ensure that /anon/ links would redirect to /free/ for anyone who heard about /anon/ previously.
5. /oat/ would be the home for all off-topic, all social serial (basically any recurring thread that isn't a General) and all general /oat/meal culture and /oat/ related things.

6. /fic/ would be unchanged.
7. /rp/ would be largely unchanged save for having /ooc/ merged back into it. All but the stickies on /ooc/ would be moved seamlessly back into /rp/.
8. /fan/ would primarily serve as a long-term home for threads that need to stick around without 404ing on faster boards - artist galleries, request and commission threads, any long term fan projects that wouldn't do well on /pony/, /free/ or /oat/.

A. /fic/ and /fan/ would retain their #Mature tag.
B. /free/ would remain with its current tag-or-spoiler paradigm.
C. /free/ would have its bump-limit increased to keep active threads on the front page longer.
D. I will suggest to the SysAdmin to implement a post+image count as well as the Page # feature of 4chanX
E. The above (D) will likely start being worked on once the Catalog is complete.

Board Restructuring 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.

Regarding /pic/ and /art/ 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.

Tournament stuff 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.

Regarding /fan/ 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.

Please exile the glamorizing of mental illness 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.

Your Moon is ugly, and I don't mean your ass... 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.

/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.

/oat/meal and /mlp/ - Please read everything. 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.

In regards to: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/meta/res/139362.html 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 improve the quality of moderating and decision making in the future, and hopefully this incident has not damaged your faith in the moderating team too much.

We know there will be questions and quite a lot of comments, please keep them in this thread and we will answer them to the best of our abilities. Threads on this topic will be deleted as long as this thread remains active in the interest of keeping the board clean and not spreading the moderating staff thin.

Thank you.

So Filler stepped down as !!Spike today. Are we going to get a replacement at some point?

I would also like to request that a link to the #fic IRC channel be placed in the sticky, preferably within the first few lines.

Dubschan Hey.

We are a circlejerk/parody of an imageboard and would like to know if we can borrow your script.
We don't intend to advertise here, so I won't post the link, unless you request me to do so.
We saw that MLPG.co is using the script and wondered if we may use it, too.
Our board is running on Tinyboard and it would be neat if we could install your extension.

Steam Web Browser Issues Just a little heads up, the scripts are completely broken in steams web browser. No settings page, auto update, quick post etc..

May not be the highest priority but they did work at one point. Just something to look into.

I was just informed of this issue from my sites users, think it was the march 31st updates that did it, unfortunately I don't have the old scripts to test with.

Okay, so... It seems the Worldbuilders Thread in /ooc/ has autosaged for some reason and none of us over there know exactly why.

Can someone please alert us as to what's going on?

Site updates, new board and more! Hello mlpchan!
After a few community discussions, we are going to implement a few new features. We're very excited to bring you those and I hope you guys will enjoy them!

First and foremost, as you may have noticed, we have a new board: >>>/ooc/ - Out of Character - Roleplay planning. The growing /rp/ community has been asking for a planning and announcements board as seen here >>6651, so we're giving it a try, see how it pans out!

Then, we want to discuss /fan/. The imageboard format has never been the most fitting for fanwork projects, and this board hasn't really provided a needed space for that audience, most of whom maintain such things on places like deviantArt or traditional forums.
While we could simply remove it or unlist as unneeded space, we could also try to re-purpose the board before doing anything like that. Nothing would make us happier than seeing /fan/ develop its own community.
One of our ideas is to turn it into a feedboard, getting updates from EQD, EquestriaAfterDark (after our Mature filter, of course) and other feed sources for example… But we feel we could do better.
Would it interest you guys? And if not - what would you like to see on /fan/ if you have ideas of your own?

Site filter, developed by Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash, will be implemented very soon as well, as the code for it simply needs to be tweaked by our very own Mac'.

Finally, I'd like to update you guys on a site-wide announcements system, it has been widely asked for, and we did get a few ideas on it. It is pretty high on the priority list, so expect updates soon.

If you have any input on those matters - please, post them here! ♥

Reply Notifier As you may have noticed or are already using, the site has a Reply Notifier.

The Reply Notifier will do two things; first, it will put the number of new replies to you in a thread that is currently opened in the tab. That is, in the top bar of your browser, where it already tells you if/how many new replies there are in a thread (with a little number in parenthesis), it will also tell you specifically if there are new replies to your own posts. Whenever someone posts a reply to you (quotes you, your post link) in a thread you have open, the tab will display it - (1 reply) or (2 replies) etc.

The second thing it will do is optional; it will also chime a sound to alert you to new replies, though this is a separate option for people who want the tab to tell them of new replies but not hear the sound. So you can either of just the one, or both!

Notes about the audible portion of the Reply Notifier: the QR must be enabled, and of course, the setting itself turned on, and the thread(s) open in your browser.

This function makes it all the easier to keep track of your conversations and discussions, especially when you're using multiple threads or doing other things while chan'ing.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Issues using the site with a phone Basically, my name field keeps clearing itself after each post. Also, I can't access the settings and auto-updating doesn't work, but I'm not sure if that's a limitation on the browser itself, and those don't bother me that much at all. I'm using version 7.5.33286 of Opera Mini with an Android phone.

Name clearing itself is pretty self-explanatory, I'd think. I write my name, I post, it goes poof. I can deal with that, copy-pasting my trip every time, but it gets pretty annoying pretty fast.

As for the navbar, if I have text wrapping enabled I cannot see it at all. With text wrapping unchecked, I can see the navbar and the "settings" link at the top of the "home" page. When clicked, it shows the headers for the different settings (Page Formatting, Link Behaviour) but clicking them only closes the setting window and it doesn't show the actual settings under any of the headers. On the actual boards I cannot see the "settings" link at all, but I can see the navbar. On both settings (text wrapping or no) I have the links to different boards at the bottom of each page.

I tested this stuff using the default Android browser for comparison and all the features work just fine, the browser itself just is slow as molasses and I'd prefer not to use it because of that. If the navbar + settings are a limitation of the browser, that's okay, I'll look into finding a different browser if need be. The name field I'd imagine should work, considering it doesn't clear itself over on Pchan with Opera Mini (did tests). Unless Tinyboard has a different way of dealing with it or something, I dunno.

Thanks for reading, I hope it's not too much trouble to check this out <3

Character limits. Again. Wouldn't a character limit of 8192 on non-/fic/ boards make a bit more sense than 7500, given it's exactly 8 KB?
Also, posts tend to get godawful long on /rp/ sometimes, so I imagine it might be beneficial to use /fic/'s expanded limit there.
All just a suggestion, but I'd like to hear staff feedback regardless.

The Synchtube Issue: Solved. I have located a website that was created to solve the issue with Synchtube being dead. Lo' and behold, the website is actually made for bronies. Imagine that.

The interface works perfectly, and streams like a peach. Moderators are given a special hyperlink to log in under to manage the channel. The chat function is login based.
Regardless, this works to our needs.
No need to thank me.

/ooc/ post limit Hey, so, it's not AS much a problem as /rp/ was, but.
On /ooc/ old content can be as valuable as on /rp/, and much like /rp/, the threads still don't reach the same extremes as, say, /chat/ used to. In particular, even on Ponychan, which does not have the same technical limitations you do, they seldom exceed a thousand posts, and the longest threads there (before we moved here) now self-cap as a conscientious manner between 3k and 3.5k.
Would it be troublesome to raise the reply limit to equal /rp/'s?
If so, it's not a big problem or anything; the canon that concerns me, those threads move far slower than the roleplay threads,so it won't be much additional work to keep them archived.

Block Issues are mostly allowed to be worked out between the users, with moderator interaction coming in when necessary, if I understand.

That's not happening. I don't know why, but this is always how it's been, more or less, and from what I know, I don't see that trend changing anytime soon. And hey, when the moderators intervened with my legitimate issues, it was lazily dealt with, painting me and my stalker with a broad brush, and I had to yell at the admin for a little while to get taken even remotely seriously.

I don't like dealing with jerks, and the mods just won't. I'm not going to put in the effort to try and hassle everyone, all the way up to the top, to get issues of common sense dealt with without it being done lazily and without me being insulted (and apologized to later). This has happened multiple times now. I love you guys to death, but this is not one of your strong suits. Friends of mine and I have had many conversations with the administrator about this topic, and the issue keeps occurring.

So can someone please add a blocking feature to the website?

Reply Notifier Bug Alright, I am having sort a issue with the reply notifier. Whenever I get the reply sound it sometimes makes the sound from everything else stop working.

Like, everything else will play sound… Other programs that plays media.

Just not on my browser anymore.

It will freeze and get stuck. Then no more sound from the notifier at all.

So I have to restart my compy to fix this issue. But then it will happen a bit later.

So yeah, I am dumbfounded here.

Modified dice system to implement, well, stat modifiers 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.

Staff addition 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.

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 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/). Ideas for ways to utilize these and other things, and any project, activity or event suggestions, just let us know! If you'd rather bring something up one on one, just send us a message, email or Skype (Skype's all listed >>616 ).

So take it from here - tell us what's on your mind.

Unnecessary thread movement 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?

Moving away from synchtube 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.

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.
