Why lock the trap thread and not pic related?
Just a question.

BMO 11938

Why was the trap thread locked?
There was no NSFW pics posted on it.

BMO 11939

I just honestly want to know an answer to this, considering it was locked for NSFW content despite there being no NSFW content. Unless butts have been deemed NSFW, but then we'd have to lock down almost every thread.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11940

It probably just rustled someone's jimmies is all.
But still, it kind of brings into question the standards here.

!!Fluttershy 11941

The "straight thread", as it stands, got a few porn posts that were deleted, but it doesn't have the potential to derail into something worse. As it stands it just became random chatter.

The trap thread is an obvious attempt at getting trans/crossdressing members to post their own pictures - which is exactly what it was starting to derail into.

If there was a group of women camwhoring and eager to post pictures of themselves I'd act the same way towards the straight thread. As it is, there isn't.

If you had wished for the straight thread to be deleted, you should have reported it.


File: 1382835364963.jpg (5.12 KB, 272x162, wat.jpg)

I have to admit, this seems a little odd. What exactly was the problem?

BMO 11943

Since when is camwhoring NSFW?


File: 1382835522841.png (171.75 KB, 400x429, uhm.png)

It wasn't a hate thread though.

!!Fluttershy 11946

Are you implying any trap-related discussion doesn't eventually derail into one of the members posting absolutely nsfw pictures of themselves?
This kind of behavior feeds the latent teenage horniness that's been all over /oat/ lately and that a lot of people have been complaining about.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11947

I don't think anyone here wishes for any thread to be deleted.
Also, the most nsfw pictures there have been posted countless times before and ignored.
I'm not angry with any changes in the rules or the outlook of administration, I just want to know if any have occurred.

BMO 11948

How many times has this happened? As far as I know, only one discussion broke out into blatant self NSFW posts, and that wasn't a trap thread, that was a fapping thread.

But if you want to go around "protecting the teens from their penises," then go ahead. Just warn me about that before you make the site a high school.

!!Fluttershy 11949

File: 1382835816804.png (391.16 KB, 780x700)

… but /oat/ is already a high school, and if you've been to high school, you know how horny teenagers are there. That is my point.

!!Fluttershy 11950

There have been no changes to the rules. There also had never been a thread dedicated to trapping. I'm not banning anyone or even warning anyone. I'm saying that if someone were to browse /oat/ at work or at school I doubt pictures of posters in socks and panties is the first thing they'd like to see on the screen.


File: 1382835954894.png (459.24 KB, 766x471, hmm.png)

I don't think anyone here has ever posted a NSFW picture of themselves.

!!Fluttershy 11952

File: 1382836006980.png (213.78 KB, 400x500)

BMO 11953

My point is, I don't even think it's the trap threads that are derailing into that kinda stuff.
My only recollection of events like that was in one thread that was blatantly about fapping. Yes, those kinds of threads really shouldn't be around, but the trap thread wasn't even close to that. In fact, only two self pics, as far as I can tell, were even posted.

I'm not here defending certain types of threads, I personally don't care. But this sorta stuff doesn't even to be safe guarded because it's honestly not NSFW. I don't want this site to turn into a Ponychan style nazi mod haven. And if that's where it's going, I left one site for a reason.

Kok Lord☭!lu8U9UYkvM 11954

Bullshit is bullshit.

There was no reason for the thread to be locked, there was more potential for bad things to happen in the straight thread, and they did.

All that happened in the trap thread were a few sfw camwhore pics.

!!Fluttershy 11955

File: 1382836127361.png (67.44 KB, 230x210)

I'm unlocking the thread. But if I get a single report, a single one, you're to be held responsible for it.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11956

Hold me responsible too.
I made this thread after all.

!!Fluttershy 11957

File: 1382836171041.png (288.94 KB, 600x700)

Well apparently the OP deleted it.
'cause I didn't.

Anonymous 11958

But women in barely there bikinis, that's fine?


File: 1382836247774.png (322.89 KB, 480x428, whaa.png)

I could just spoiler them.

But then again I guess having polical threads with a muscular furry with a very prominent package posing in a thong as the OP picture are prefectly suitable for work and school.

BMO 11960

Thread got deleted shortly after lock.

But I'm not even worried about it getting unlocked. I'm just wary of the direction of the lock. Hold me personally responsible for future threads like that, I don't care. If I get in trouble over standing up for a thread that isn't breaking the rules to be around, then that's just more reason to not come back.

You did spoiler -your- pic.

Anonymous 11961



File: 1382836408250.png (433.02 KB, 672x453, okay.png)

I didn't spoiler the lace stockings picture, but I'd hardly qualify it as NSFW.

BMO 11963

File: 1382836455938.jpg (42.96 KB, 577x482, Bwha.jpg)

I thought you did. It was spoilerd in that thread for me, at least. Unless I'm just losing my mind.


File: 1382836513698.png (171.75 KB, 400x429, uhm.png)

I don't think it was spoilered.

!JesusH.0HM 11965

File: 1382836748926.png (126.36 KB, 784x700, VS321.png)

I have to say that, to a degree, this is the mods' clubhouse and we have to follow their rules if we want to play here. I understand that.

But this kind of precautionary censorship is the same reason we originally split off from Ponychan, wasn't it? That we were tired of the mods taking their power a little too much to their heads and letting their emotions get in the way of fairness? I'm not for adult content in the eyes of children who aren't mature enough to view it, but that doesn't mean we need to lock, delete, and ban before it can even become a possibility. Certainly ban those who flagrantly disobey the rules directly, but it's too harsh to lock a group discussion simply for the chance of rule-breaking.

Meanwhille on oat this image of a woman in a string bikini is the header of a thread that remains unbanned.

>bikinis are nsfw
What are you, Christian?

BMO 11968

If no one reports it, nothing will happen. Simple as that.

!!Fluttershy 11969

As I said, the thread's now authorized. but you have been warned.

Are you implying I should start deleting every picture that shows a cleavage?
There's a large difference of intent between posting a girl in a bikini and posting pictures of a guy in panties.

Anonymous 11970

So gender is the actual issue here?

!JesusH.0HM 11972

File: 1382837363514.png (283.2 KB, 890x1210, VS83.png)

Warned? For doing nothing wrong?

I understand your sentiment, but you're still putting your feelings for the rules over the rules themselves.

Don't start. No rules were broken in that thread. You just don't like it, and that's why they built in a hide thread feature.

Anonymous 11973

Then everyone should be ablke to hide the trap thread.

BMO 11974

Are you implying that if /oat/ is a bunch of horny teenagers, that an OP of a half naked super model isn't going to rile up the boys?

!JesusH.0HM 11975

They are. It's not like that feature is reserved for certain users.

Anonymous 11976

Then I fail to see the reason for the thread being locked.

!!Fluttershy 11977

File: 1382837551126.png (90.41 KB, 360x333)

There is a world between the picture of a woman in bikini and a guy crodsressing, mainly because the more taboo something is socially the less "sfw" it is considered, that's why people try to do forbidden things and always will.

Gender isn't the issue, and you know it damn well, either try and have a bit of constructive discussion or stop posting on /site/, leave trolling attempts out of here.

>Warned? For doing nothing wrong?
Not warned in the ban sense, warned as in, what i said will happen will happen, you have been warned,

It won't provoke as bad a reaction than an opportunity to show off their new panties.

Anonymous 11978

I'm sorry

!JesusH.0HM 11979

And that's why this thread is here.

I see.

I would think animals acting gay would be more taboo than people discussing coping with homosexuality.

!!Fluttershy 11981

File: 1382837749636.png (100.71 KB, 945x945)

As I said, the thread would be unlocked hadn't OP deleted it for some reason.
I realize it may not have been the most tactful way to enforce things, I still think eventually I'd have had to ban people - and I prefer locking a thread than doing that - but apparently that option is out of the question.


File: 1382837803104.png (72.96 KB, 171x494, 51.png)

from what im understanding is that tom locked that thread because it could turn into a NSFW mess

i completely agree with his choice

BMO 11983

That's only because this site has few female posters. If there were more and they felt like being attention whorey, they would just as easily take that thread as incentive, just like the posters of that thread already took the incentive to post NSFW pics.

Either lock all threads on content like that, or don't touch things just because of where it could go.

>Gender isn't the issue, and you know it damn well, either try and have a bit of constructive discussion or stop posting on /site/, leave trolling attempts out of here.

Try to calm down before having a constructive conversation. It'll do a world of good for everyone involved.

Anonymous 11984

I said I was sorry.

!JesusH.0HM 11985

It's not "out of the question" as much as it simply seems unfair. Not in regards to the exact current situation, is it fair to lock a topic because of a few individuals' behavior? Regardless of whether or not you think a subject could "rile the teens", the specific people that break the rules are the ones that deserve to be penalized, not everyone partaking in the subject collectively.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11986

Why not just remind people to not post NSFW pictures in the thread itself?

!!Fluttershy 11987

File: 1382837917645.png (288.94 KB, 600x700)

I was just making myself clear. I didn't mean to sound agressive, sorry.

>That's only because this site has few female posters
Yes. yes it does.

Anonymous 11988

It's alright, and I just wanted to mention thhere are ladies that like traps too.


File: 1382838017073.png (253.23 KB, 498x630, 137.png)

people know /oat/ is a SFW board. they just post NSFW content anyway.

BMO 11990

Then why not lock the straight thread, which had NSFW pics posted in it and said pics were deleted?
You said it yourself, you like locking a thread over just banning and deleting.
That thread DID go that far, but you didn't lock it, but you locked a thread because you thought it might go that far?

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11991

Yeah, well /mlp/ is a SFW board, and that had absolutely no moderation. Everyone posted clop, and it was all dandy, and no one complained.
But that just couldn't have been, couldn't it?

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11992

I guess what I'm trying to say is it's much better to steer a conversation in the right path than to tell everyone to shut up.


File: 1382838426067.png (244.21 KB, 603x576, 7.png)

see the thing is about /mlp/ is that, when the board was first made, moot put a stick and one of the rules said: "no clop clop". they knew exactly what not to post. the "scruffining" was just action being taken because it is a SFW bored. on 4chan the basic yotsuba b means SFW board.

i feel ya… but still… i see his point.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11994

File: 1382838821085.gif (205.95 KB, 299x189, let me hit you with some knowl…)

Not really.
The reason the Scruffening happened wa because when Lauren mentioned /mlp/ was her favorite pony site, the news spread as quick as one would imagine. Soon ponyfuckers from every other cancerous site flooded the place, and whined about the lack of moderation. In completely ignoring the place's culture and the whole reason Faust said it was her favorite, they forced mods to take care of things. And who was the only one capable of fulfilling the evil shoes? Why, Scruffy of course. He was originally happy doing nothing for his job (along with everyone else on /mlp/), but when told to change things he decided to do his damndest job.
And now I'm here with you fags.

>And now I'm here with you fags

and we're glad to have you here.

but idk about all that. i didnt pay attention. i dont like, nor use /mlp/.

just saying, if the board is SFW, then it it's SFW.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 11996

That's the kind of thinking that destroys cultures there.

Kok Lord☭!lu8U9UYkvM 11997

I like that joke.

Anonymous 11998

Apparently I just don't know what sfw means anymore.


File: 1382839223844.png (206.17 KB, 273x538, 175.png)

it is what it is, man… they should have just made /mlp/ NSFW to begin with

im sure you do… tho, to be fair it's hard to tell what is and what isnt SFW because it's so subjective. and lots of stuff can be in the grey area. it's not anyones fault. happends i guess.

Anonymous 12000

I agree, it's a grey area issue.

Anonymous 12001

How about we just agree to spoiler selfies and go back to our lives.

Anonymous 12002

In theory, SFW means "Safe For Work." Stuff it would be okay to be seen looking at in the workplace. Assuming you're allowed to be looking at non-work stuff in the first place, of course. Otherwise just about everything would be NSFW. Usually ends up somewhere around "stuff that's not too sexual or gory to show in a PG-13 film."

MLPchan solves the ambiguity by specifying what it considers 'NSFW':
>Depictions of sex acts, genitals, female nipples, sex fluids, and underage sexualization are prohibited.
>Depictions of explicit dismemberment, torture, or butchery are prohibited.

Anonymous 12003

>Lauren mentioned /mlp/ was her favorite pony site
except none of what you said including that ever happened


File: 1382872134634.png (171.75 KB, 400x429, uhm.png)

I know this is a bit late, but may I ask just what NSFW pictures you guys are talking about? I was in that thread right before it disappeared and I didn't see anything NSFW.

Literally, there were three pictures in it. A guy in shorts and socks, Kok Lord wearing more clothes than he usually does, and mine, which I've posted like over a dozen times on here before with no issue.

So what exactly was NSFW about the thread? I don't understand.

Stage name!!PJzkqS1qZb 12007

It happened.
Google it.

Tom' the /♥/ bringer 12018
