Ponychan-MLPchan Merger >>>/site/15219

A way around !!Celestia. Anonymous 10570

Yes I am bringing up the merger.
What if we in "MLPonychan" had had two teirs of admin that have nothing to do with funding?
One is coder: Orange would code and perhaps help to fund MLPonychan and another is Admin: They would handle the social aspect of modding and one can be a member of both.
That should keep Orange from banning everyone right?

there are a number of issues outside of orange that are keeping the two chans seperate.
As much as I'd love to see a merge happen, I'm pretty sure it would be a very very bad idea at the moment.
Sorry man..

After what happened when this place got founded I would not want anything at all to do with Orange.

All the other mod kids are great guys, some who I have known for years.
So I would 100,000,000% be against anything in which Orange was involved.

And this is coming from a purely non personal standpoint, only due to… could you even say professional since none of us get paid… so…. I guess this would be just from a completely "professional" standpoint.

Only thing a merge would bring is "power" to ponychan's power hungry mods.
Those unstable assholes shuldn't be allowed to keep goldfish, let alone have control over anything sentient.
It's stupid, the idea in general is stupid.

I seriusly hope you guys don't do this

It's were you're treading right now

Stopped reading when I saw Ponychan. Many people don't like them, especially their mods.

Please dear god don't make this site have anything to do with Ponychan

The whole reason I came here was because I couldn't even handle 4chan mods, let alone Ponychan mods.

Doesn't matter. It's already been determined that the staff can't work together, mlpchan users don't trust PC's staff anyway and many of the users hate each other on principal.
The bridge is burned. You'd have better results merging /anon/ with /rp/

the mere tought made me burst a blood vessel

the last attempt at a merger devolved into slapfights, petty mistrust, and people from both sides being shitty at each other

if even the staff of both sites can't work together, there's no way you're going to bring the people together. not gonna happen

I feel that part of the reason why both sites have little relevance from the public is because of divisions out of weightless yet overwhelming complaints like the ones you listed. Its a shame to see the potential of the idea swept under the rug, but yeah, there's nothing we can do about it. Anyone seen how badly /fic/ has been stagnating recently, across both sites? It's pretty sad.

And it really makes you think, what will become of them at the cancellation of the entire G4 series and beyond?

Next April fools' day, mods, you know what to do…

The first half of >>10799 was actually directed towards >>10781. My bad.

I remember when /fic/ was trying to argue for moving here and it was kind of a mess, and them splitting into two directions pretty much killed their board more than anything else. I remember saying that we'd help them and such here however we can if they moved here (but apparently that never happened or something. sorry guys), but that if they did come they -had- to get their shit together first. That didn't happen, and it predictably divided into two diminished camps.

I have more or less no confidence in the communities ever being brought back together, and in all honesty I don't see how because MLPChan has become a sort of mishmash of cultures from other places now rather than the thing that splintered from Ponychan back then. The original culture that took up root here is muddled and gone, for better or for worse, and what's left is something that would want nothing to do with Ponychan. And for a lot less good reasons than the people that originally came here at that.

I expect both sites to sort of drift along after Ponies finally end, regardless. Eventually, though, people are going to get sick of paying for hosting and they'll have to go away.

It will be a sad day

I may be wrong, but I believe the problem with /fic/ is more that most folk just use fimfiction or something like that. Easier to search with, filter out this and that, find a specific character. There's not a whole lot of reason to go to /fic/ unless you are looking for a completely random story.
>>10802
The original folk wouldn't want anything to do with Ponychan anyway.
Most left Ponychan with a large sum of embitterment.

>The original folk wouldn't want anything to do with Ponychan anyway.

Most left Ponychan with a large sum of embitterment.

Hence why I said the current population has a much less concrete, valid reason to flail their arms at the mention of Orange and Ponychan.

Regardless, quite a few have gone back or crosspost at this point.
