/oat/ and /anon/ Relations Nogitrov 12096

Alright, I think this should be discussed. Things on this chan are starting to get a bit dramatic, so I think it's high-time we had a civil conversation concerning the nature of inter-board relationships, especially /oat/ and /anon/. As things are now, they really don't get along very well. Why do you think that is?

one is a board where people socialize and tripcodes.

the other is encouraged anonymity with most users from 4chan.

im from 4chan. but lost the attitude a few years ago.

while i see where they're coming from that yeah, our board is honestly pretty bad… not gonna lie. yeah, i do shit it up. but not all the time.

also, while im here id like to apologize for i acted on /anon/.

but FUCK, it's not all my fault!

Apology accepted. Congrats, you've moved back up to "Good-Tier" range. Give yourself a hug!

Anyways, back to the subject at hand. You make good points, /oat/ isn't always great, but we've certainly had our moments. Remember the whole "butter knife" deal a while back? Fun times were had. I suspect that /oat/ will improve, even if it's just a little, for several different reasons:
>1. The posters there will hopefully have learned from the drama

>2. Kok is gone (I don't want to discuss this more than I already have, and I'd prefer to not derail the thread, thanks).

>3. We have this thread to peacefully discuss the board relations. Maybe it will clarify some people's views on things.

I believe most /oat/ and most /anon/ users don't care much for the other board - correct me if I'm wrong - it just seems like a vocal few to me.

I'm absolutely not against discussion though. As long as it stays civil.

This is mostly true.

I'm from /anon/, and I have zero interest in /oat/, however I have nothing against it either.

I barely ever see anyone on /anon/ even mention /oat/, so if /oat/ is having problems, I don't think it actually has to do with /anon/, because I'm on it every day and it seems to me like we are just minding our business…

That makes sense, I suppose. They certainly do have their differences, though. Whereas most /anon/ users are /mlp/ refugees (such as myself), most of /oat/ comes from various different sources such as Ponychan and /b/. I can definitely see where conflict could spring up.

I think one of the biggest differences between the two (if not THE biggest difference) is the attitude towards namefags, avatarfags and tripfags. On /oat/, all of these things are normal and encouraged, with the majority of posters being namefags. On the other hand, /anon/ generally has a certain disdain for namefags that don't actually contribute anything to the board as a whole.

I can see the reasoning behind both of these lines of thinking, which is why I save all of my namefaggotry for /oat/, while my posts on /anon/ are almost always anonymous. With the exception of when I'm hosting Clop General, of course.

Wouldn't have anything against snatching a name and post on /oat/, they seem like good people, most of the time anyways.

Understand why they namefag as well, they're centered around people, not content.
Would like to give it a shot, i'm not biased.
How do i go about this without getting perma baned for hurting someone's feels?

>a poster who just doesnt care either way and doesnt take shit too seriously

i like you already. you seem opened minded as it is. you should post on /oat/ too. id like to see you around

you realize this site isnt 4chan on top of that.

>How do i go about this without getting perma baned for hurting someone's feels?

you wont get a perma for that. only if you constantly hurt they're feels all the time and stuff like that.

also, this post here https://mlpchan.net/oat/res/1117312.html#1167547

is something what im talking about. this is just flat-out stupid.

this is the kinda stuff that will stir drama as well.

maybe a rule should be made to stop users from complain about other boards and their culture to prevent drama?

Rusty 12119


There is a fine line between maintaining peace and silencing negative opinions.

Don't wanna give posters the impression that [random thing/case] is off limits for hate or discussion because it might stir shit up.


File: 1383678986812.png (62.67 KB, 251x289, 203.png)

yeah good point. i just feel it's getting old…

tbh, id like for both places to just get along and let each board do what they do.

We all would, Mikie, we all would.

But over and above all, it's just another day.

BMO 12123

Because they are two segregated communities that view the opposite side as evil with a strong, opinionated and vocal set of people who believe that they are in the moral right and that there is a total unanimity among the followers, whom are vulnerable people mostly younger than the age of 25.

This is how cults are formed in real life and the same applies here.

Anonymous 12125

Posts the one you linked should be banned. Easy. The reason we keep dealing with this crap is the staff here won't take care of the few people who keep stirring it up.

that's kinda what i mean…

but it's whatever now honestly. im just going to ignore it now. as i said before. it's just getting old.

Nogitrov 12131

Looking forward to seeing you post in the future

This is because named users either avoid /anon/ entirely or drop their name out of respect for /anon/. Meanwhile, anons come to /oat/ and stir up shit because /oat/ isn't /anon/.

So the main reason you never see anyone bitch about /oat/ on /anon/ is because most /oat/ users respect /anon/'s culture, while /anon/ likes to come to /oat/ and bitch about EVERYTHING. So yeah. It's kind of a one-sided thing here.

There've been plenty of named users too immature to drop their names on /anon/.


File: 1383828361290.png (359.17 KB, 728x471, shrug.png)

I'm not the one that said it wasn't a problem on /anon/. I have no idea what goes on in /anon/ because I don't like anons.

It would be like me going to church even though I hate religion. I can't stand people who will bitch about something and then purposely expose themselves to it just to bitch about it more. I don't like anons, so I don't go to /anon/. It's simple. If you don't like named posters or trip codes, don't go into places where people use names and trips. Simple logic.

I'm basing this off what someone who does use a /anon/ told me, so if the information is wrong, blame them, not me.

The Vulture!3bqGraff0U 12213

I think they get along fairly fine, all things considered.
On /anon/'s end, they've not yet got used to the idea of people using tripcodes, but mostly don't care enough to go to /oat/ and say anything.
On /oat/, except for a handful of posters, we either don't care or like /anon/.
It's where I go when I want to talk about ponies without drama.

The Vulture!3bqGraff0U 12214

/oat/ does not require you to have a name.
We've had anonymous posters long before there was ever an /anon/ board. There is no rule or cultural standard that requires a name.
/anon/'s board specifically states in the header to post anonymously. /oat/ says nothing if the sort.
Please stop confusing opinions with facts.

>/anon/'s board specifically states in the header to post anonymously
Well, it doesn't necessarily say that you should, but it recommends it.

* This
We have a lot of anonymous posters on /oat/.

This is flawed logic.
Just because /anon/ is meant to allow for an anonymous culture environment doesn't mean /oat/ is for names, that is entirely a community choice.

I never said that /oat/ was for names. Did you reply to my post by accident?

You know, I truly think things are getting better between /oat/ and /anon/, more people seem to be understanding if this thread is anything to go by.
But mostly I just wanted to know why on Earth you'd save that.

I never even think about /oat/ until some one comes over and doesn't drop their name/trip. Even then I'm not pissed at /oat/ in the least, just the namefag. I didn't even realize there even was any kind of tension until last weekend when several people from /oat/ came over and started shit with that one thread.

Nogitrov 12293

Because I thought it was funny.
