>>11288>tfw I am the only staff member that doesn't really mind the merge, so long as both sides understand that each has to give other the respect that they ask for.
If posters want to be protected by rules, which seems odd to me, but whatever, then we can have two boards in the merged chan which are essentially the same, with different rule sets. People can browse freely between them, and eventually people will all just go onto the less rule enforced one, as the other will naturally die as the vast majority of users don't really care about sexuality in posts.
And if they really have such a problem, just make an option:
Individual posts can be made 'mature' and you can also have an option which makes all your posts tagged mature.
People who can't deal with sexuality of any kind can keep mature off.
/anon/ won't change at all, and I will make sure that the atmosphere stays as close to as it is now as humanly possible.
/oat/ and /chat/ or whatever their stupid names are going to be will be like general and general, with one of the two allowing sexuality and such. The other will be for posters who are frightened by boobs and butts.
Seriously, even if we took ALL of ponychans boards and brought them here, eventually people would just post on all of then, at which point we could just trash any duplicates.
We keep all staff members except for controversial ones (orange, me perhaps, I dunno if I'm controversial.)
And mostly, we just relax and put old bad blood to rest instead of holding on to things that we heard from idiots who were propagatting hate between the boards for their own laughs, instead if telling the truth.
Both sides have done this, and I'm a bit tired of it to be honest.
But whatever, what do I know.
Go on, do what you will.
