Anonthony Anonymous 11425

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).

Anonthony was still here when /mlp/ moved to /anon/, the move was earlier this year before the summer, and Anonthony has only been away for a month.
He will be away for another month.

Since he is the main reason why /mlp/ found a home in /anon/ I doubt there's much question about how he'd feel about that.

Sweet. Sounds like the future for /anon/ is bright.

Also why would you think Anonthony would axe /anon/?
Well, first, anonthony isn't a tyrant. This site is user-driven.
Then even if he were a tyrant, Macil and I are tyrant in second and we don't mind /anon/.
And finally I believe he genuinely appreciates the community there.

from all the posts he's made and images he's shared with me he likes /anon/ a lot and he really appreciates the traffic to his site.

so yeah, he loves you guys.

he's a bro, that's for sure

Well it's just that I know /oat/ is very different than /anon/, and I didn't know if Anonthony had a particular preference. Like what if he only made /anon/ as a containment zone for all the fucked up people that came as a result of /mlp/ getting screwed? I mean you gotta admit, to someone who's not accustomed to the "dark side" of the fandom (or whatever bronies would call /anon/ now), /anon/ is probably a horrifying place.

Also there's all that talk about merging with Ponychan, it makes me think that some people kinda take for granted the situation we already have–/oat/ for the tripfags and whatever they do, and then /anon/ for /mlp/ refugees and other anons.

Or maybe I'm wrong, and people from /oat/ post on /anon/ all the time and vice versa, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

It just gets me thinking, which side is Anonthony on? The more personal, friendly side of MLPchan (the "Ponychan side") or the more devious side (the "4chan outlaw side").

Maybe I'm misunderstanding here, but /oat/ and /anon/ seem to have radically different cultures, and all the other boards seem pretty dead. I don't have a problem with /oat/ at all as long as they don't bother /anon/, I'm one of those guys who has no problem ignoring things that I don't like that don't affect me. But all it takes on /anon/ is one unnecessary namefag and entire threads will be derailed into the same arguments about why people should/shouldn't use a name on /anon/, regardless of whether or not the namefag was even doing anything wrong (aside from using a name).

I would argue that he isn't on either side, because ultimately, they're both part of the total community, which is the "side" he's on, if you would like to call it that.

Do you think Anonthony would ban me if I said "Applejack is worst pony"?

Yeah, I don't think it's a 'sides' thing. They're two different environments, and many of us enjoy both.

>>11440
No, but hopefully he would refer you to a mental health clinic.

I think /anon/ can rest assured that deep down 'thony wouldn't want to touch ponychan with a 6 terrabyte pole.

About the Pchan merge discussions.
Most people who bring those again are probably just trolls or looking for an argument to get into.

Because most people in this community have already participated in previous debates about it which failed, and nothing has changed since then.
Don't let that bother you.

I also consider /anon/ as part of the MLPchan community now, we base our decisions taking you guys into account - you're not just "4chan refugees", there's a reason why you have a dedicated mod.
We care about /oat/ and /anon/ equally, so yeah, don't sweat it anon.

He's a long time pony community member, who I met on /b/ two years ago. Not sure if he was ever on /co/ before that. His main home was Ponychan, until politics and restirctions led to the site fraturing into mlpchan as well.

If you were to demand he choose a side, he would be on /anon/s side. Remember that /anon/ was invited here personally by him and did not exist before that time. He personally had the site restructed for them, so he definitely supports them.

Anonthony created mlpchan to provide an alternative to ponychan. He would never adopt there style of moderation of content.

(unless all his site friends demanded it.) ;)

Are any of the mods female and/or not white?

Is posting real bestiality against the rules? Because someone is dumping it on /anon/ right now.

I just figured I'd ask here so as to not start yet another thread on this slow board.

I've asked this before. Apparently it is, as long as it's properly tagged as mature. So feel free to dump bestiality all over /anon/ But no humans plz. Let's keep our bestiality on topic.

And by, 'it is' I mean 'it is allowed.'

Meh.
If it's complete spam on an unrelated topic, of course report it. If a lot of people complain about it being in its separate topic, we will intervene, but as far as I can see people just hide the thread so I don't see an issue.
Again if it bothers many /anon/ browsers we will take action. It just doesn't look like it does.

Yeah I personally have no problem with it, I think it's gross as fuck but I just ignore it. And even then it doesn't bother me much more than futa or unbirthing or whatever.
