Site round-up: Season 4 !!Fluttershy ## Mod 12264[Last 50 Posts]

Good day, MLPchan!
It's been a while since we've had a site round-up. For those of you unfamiliar with the process, it's a /site/ thread where those who desire it get together and talk about the current state of the site, give feedback regarding the boards or moderation, or just share ideas to better the site.
A lot has happened since last round-up, resulting in no one on the staff really having the time to make one. But with Season 4 coming soon, I feel like it's now or never.
Now let's get to it shall we?

Since last round-up, we've streamlined posting across multiple boards, deleting some inactive ones and re-purposing others, for example deleting /pic/ and allowing pic dumbs just about everywhere.
We've also got a Minecraft server, which has developed a community of its own, we are very happy about it and encourage people to visit it sometime, it's quite lively at times.
The arrival of the Catalog feature -much requested by /anon/s in particular- has made browsing boards a bit easier, along with some other things /anon/-requested (Like the Tomorrow theme which seems to be among the most popular ones).

Now, a 'news' system was proposed in the last round-up, which would allow us to inform people of streams, events or other various things in a more visible way - without being more invasive than the blotter. This is a big challenge, and will take a lot of work both on the design side and simply in terms of coding, and that's why it hasn't been done yet. We still believe this is a good idea and will do our best to make it available soon.
Same goes for a plethora of other features that were requested but not implemented, or not entirely, like some themes, or the icons next to poster names. We're only human.

So what's coming in the next few days?
As most of you know, Season 4 of ponya is coming, that means a lot of things. First and foremost, we'll have one /pony/ thread per episode. Last year we had our own stream, but it was literally always empty, so instead we will be redirecting to some of the quieter Bronystate channels. If anyone wishes to stream the episodes live just for mlpchan, you can contact me and we'll talk about it.
We will also be hosting an art contest on the day E1 is out, for authors and graphic artists. They will be separate contests with separate prizes. This is something I'd like to discuss if at all possible: So far all of those contests have had pony prizes, plushies or some of those things, is this a direction that's okay with everyone, or would you rather have something else? Feel free to give ideas.

There's also another Season 4 starting tomorrow: The League of Legends Season 4. A few months ago we organized a LoL tourney, it was a metric ton of fun, as well as a little chaotic in how it was organized. Let's do it again, without the whole chaos thing! That's right, MLPchan will be hosting another cross-chan tournament very soon, with RP prizes for members of winning teams. The contest will be open to Ponychan and /mlp/ teams, and fully commentated & streamed. The tournament will happen around December.
Keep an eye out on /oat/, an announcement should be posted very soon. If you're interested I encourage you to start talking to friends. Season 4 starts tomorrow, and a lot of things are new, so even if you haven't played in a while, this might be a great time to give it a go.

And that's it for the site round-up, people, post in here, discuss things, we will be monitoring this very closely.
Give us your feedback, your ideas, your criticism, or just say hi to the staff!
As always, any kind of rudeness or insults absolutely won't be tolerated in this thread, don't expect any tolerance towards you if you act like an ass. Criticism is appreciated, both towards the community and the staff, but we're not morons and we can tell if someone has good intentions.

/anon/ here, I'm very happy with the current state of the site, however I do hope that season 4 brings in a bit more traffic, because the generals I frequent are pretty much on life support. I love this place and I look forward to enjoying season 4 with you guys.

Personally I have two problems with the site.

1. Is /anon/ isn't active enough. I really like the community and wish we were more active.

2. There is a seeming lack of pony. But that really isn't any of your faults or an inherently bad thing.

I really think some of the serials especially those that want new users should be allowed to be bumped, maybe not every post what if they were just limited to bumping once per two hours or something? /oat/ looks pretty dead without it.

And also this!
How am I supposed t read this, can you make the margins on replies smaller? I am being claustrophobic about reading replies by clicking.

still not sure the oat/chat merger was a good idea…

>Now, a 'news' system was proposed in the last round-up[…] We still believe this is a good idea and will do our best to make it available soon.

Oh cool! I thought that had been forgotten. Glad to see it's being worked on. I really think that making people aware of what's going on will increase participation in events, and in turn encourage more people to create fun activities. And I think it's that which will draw new users.

>Give us your feedback, your ideas, your criticism

One thing that bugs me is the practice some mods have of using the mod tag while anonymous. Though no one else seems to care.

>As always, any kind of rudeness or insults absolutely won't be tolerated in this thread, don't expect any tolerance towards you if you act like an ass.

tom is a poopy head :3

>I personally feel we should have a few more active mods. but no much where they're everywhere you know?
/oat/ could definitely use a mod or two.
I actually have no idea how many mods are still active. so I can't comment on this. Tom and Macil seem to be the only one I see regularly.

What I'd really like to see more people contributing in new ways; like the minecraft server and Thony's my Queenie's Heavy Mole's streaming.

barely any honestly
Tom and Macil are the main two, Legendary mods anon, dunno how the fic mod is
Mellow has left the site to focus on school, Starshine hasn't been on-line in forever, and Lawny and Derpy i haven't seen in forever

yeah it's hard to keep up streams, but I'm always trying to think of fun things we could do on the site, but i've had bad experiences organising events in the past, and when i do try it rarely ever seems to work out

I think that's a good idea. I'll get that in sometime.

Re: margins on inline previewed posts: The issue isn't so much the margins on the replies, but the margins applied to the content of posts (which the inline-previews become part of; notice they line up with text inside posts). Maybe I can set a negative margin on the inline-previewed posts or something. I definitely agree that the inline-previews thing as it is now is not that great for following long chains of conversation.

If you want /oat/ to not look dead, then you really should try to convince some of the fags in those serials to come out. Just browsing through the last 50 posts of a few serials shows several names I either have never seen outside of those threads or haven't seen in a very long time.
Fucking genius.

Oh, hey, that wouldn't be a bad idea…
But then that makes 3 contests, and well, Idunno how much money I can put into those, unless members decide to support one. I definitely don't want people paying to participate, that'd be plain retarded..

How would everyone feel about a music contest as well?

That's a problem every pony place is experiencing at the moment, traffic is lowering everywhere. Remember also a lot of activity is in serials, it may not seem like it but MLPchan is tying for second most active english imageboard with Ponychan, that does make us among the most active pony places in the imageboard scene, and it still feels pretty inactive at times.

This actually wouldn't be bad… I'll talk to Macil about it. That''s a great idea. Oh nevermind >>12283

A board just for serials would be nice for clearing them off of other boards, but the idea itself just doesn't sit quite right with me. Probably because it wouldn't really do much to help /oat/ and /anon/ stop being mostly dead, since the serials themselves would still be around.

maybe… if we could do something to encourage them to make topics. since they kind of do anyway in a way in their serials. i just feel they're really secluded sometimes.

Mods and mod activity !!Fluttershy 12304

File: 1384141162603.png (97.24 KB, 462x367)

Okay this is a concern expressed in many posts, I'll try and cover everything, and be honest with everyone.

Which mods are active right now?
Macil and I are the most active mods at the moment. That does not make us the only active mods, Lawny, Mellow and James are too, and it changes a lot: 2 months ago it was literally only Mellow, and right now Mellow is starting Uni and I have more spare time.
About Lawny, he's active, just more quietly than others like Macil and I.

Honestly, which mods have I not heard from in a while? Cross Breeze and Starshine (!!Twilight and !!Pinkie) have been here on and off in the past few months. Legendary (!!Big Mac) got very busy with real life, but he tries to be active when he can.
!!Derpy has also been less active as a mod though he still posts semi regularly. And when I say that I don't mean to be pointing fingers, for multiple reasons:
- Those people are guys I know can do a great job, and they're busy with their lives at the moment, which is fine by me
- I've had periods of inactivity myself, and I was glad to have someone moderating while I was away without bitching about me being away
- Most of us have been at it for over a year now. Of course when the site started we were all here 24/7 but stuff came up, we have school, work, etc.
- Remember that the mod activity that you guys see (And even that I see) is only a very tiny portion of what we do. Why? Because we do our best to moderate without derailing threads or drawing attention on us. Not to mention a lot of our job is just sitting there waiting for a report or lurking serials/boards looking for spam, or porn, or whatever.

Is there going to be a new mod?
That's a very tough question, the most honest answer is: Probably not. If we had anyone that fit all our criteria perfectly, there would be one already, however there isn't and we don't want to rush into anything. it's not like the situation is critical right now, nor like it ever was.
Our criteria don't just mean "someone who's active and always here", we need people who live in certain places, up at certain hours, familiar with certain communities, etc. and at the moment there just hasn't been anyone I looked at and said "Wow this guy should be in the staff", like we did for !!Big Mac.

Who's Anonymous ## Mod ?
Whoever is moderating /anon/ at that moment really. /anon/ is picky with names and trips and we believe that applies to moderation as well. We are yet to recruit an Anonymous poster as a mod (to our anonymous community members I assure you I keep an eye on you as well, don't worry). Anonymous ## Mod is also a tag I personally used a lot outside /anon/ at some point, because it made moderating easier in general, however I realized a month ago how impersonal it made my moderation as well, and have stopped since then.

That wouldn't fix the issue: What needs to happen is for more serial posters to post outside of their serials. Putting them on a different board is gonna do the opposite of that.

>lurking serials/boards looking for spam, or porn, or whatever.
Why? Surely someone will report if it were a problem, and if not why delete it? It seems to me that participating in the community would be more important the staring at a thread on the off chance something happens.

Anyway, I've never seen a mod derail a thread by simply posting. Usually it happens when the thread has a argument that already derailed the thread.

It's nice to have a group where everyone knows everyone

If we can delete it before it gets reported we get bonus points.
Seriously though we don't have a very modern report system, it doesn't work like the Watch thing, which autoupdates in the corner of your screen.
The report screen is a page that says Report: (0) and you have to refresh it.
There's just so much staring at it one person can do. Of course we watch it but we'd much rather skim through boards and active places, seeing people talk and post with them, than just stare at that.

I agree. I said that making such a board wouldn't have any real benefit aside from a little cleanup, so there would be no real point in doing in.

And having a group like that is nice, but I don't think it's very good for anyone to be sitting in the same thread for months on end with the exact same people day in and day out without change. But what do I know, I'm just some guy on an imageboard.

I just think that /oat/ and /pony/ are SFW and should be kept SFW.

If they spoiler the porn in the serials? I'm conflicted on it, but id consider not deleting it.

But outright porn has no place in a SFW board imo. Its SFW for a reason.

The community chose to be in /oat/ and can easily move over to /anon/ if they wanted NSFW content.

It got dragged on for too long and people lost the hype, I don't remember any major drama.
We are changing the format, so that it stays short and people stay hyped from start to finish.

It did 'end" but not all games were played because so many teams had to quit because people couldn't play. TPC won, with BatG second and [email protected] 3rd

I remember some kind of drama about 'ringers' being brought in, in the form of people not actually involved in the sites. And also an instance of one poster getting cut from his threads team because on of their friends turned out to be better.

Should just be established rules about who can play and who can't this time, to pre-empt any complaints. I know it's all supposed to be for fun, but people get really serious when a team is 2 points ahead of the second place, and someone thinks it's because of a 'ringer'. You Leaguers are all serious businesses.

That was just one team.
The issue is we want it to be for fun - but we also don't want to shun people who are of a high skill level, mainly because they make the game more fun to watch and because well, it'd suck to say "you're too good to be in a fun tournament".
Unfortunately there's no real solution besides making the prize pool smaller, because very experienced player tend to have a lot of RP/IP and not care much about small amounts, and I'm a little reluctant at doing that.

Just thought I'd throw this in here because why not.

I really dislike the filter on /oat/ [possible other places, I don't go to much besides /anon/, and don't recall if it is in place there] that changes nigger to zebra.
Personally, I would prefer there be no filter at all, but if that's not really an option for some reason, could it at least be turned to the more proper term; zigger?
Just makes more sense. Zebra is not as smooth-flowing into sentence structure. Besides that, political correctness is stupid and should be burnt at the stake.

I'm going to assume I can post on here as long as I remain nice if that's ok with everybody.

I don't like it either.

But I just don't like any brony-tier Ponychan-esque /b/rony whatever you want to call it anything, maybe because I wasn't around during all that.

I watched the show fandom-free up until Season 3.
Went to /mlp/ in Jan.

Was nice board for a while, then got much worse after Lauren came and endorsed it as best pony board in her own opinion. Aside from having to "put on her armor" when coming over to lurk.

Something crazy happened. And to this day we don't know exactly what.
A janitor started to enforce rules that were never enforced before and deleted basically any thread. Threads that didn't even break rules.

Barney Day happened around this point. But it was more like Barney week.

People were making troll, gore, etc. threads at 50 times the normal rate.
Someone kept calling everybody "furfags"
At one point I saw a furry make a thread saying "you fuck with us, you get fucked with"

moot. was. silent.
And remains silent about the whole ordeal.
At one point however, he was bragging that Lauren had visited his website.
And when she visited, he made one post on the board saying only "these are truly the end times" and put that dramatic Matrix music to autoplay on the board.

I can show you some stuff in the archives around that time, but keep in mind a lot of stuff has been purged from the archive for one reason or another, so it is not in any way a complete historical documentation.

And now /mlp/ is virtually porn free and bronies have invaded. So it's disgusting. The janitor now only deletes porn and s4s or /v/ tier shitposting if you report it. And the bronies don't report the shitposting but they do report the porn. Anyway that's why /anon/ is populated with many of the /mlp/ people that care about that to the point that they would rather post on /anon/.

So that's why that happened here at mlpchan.

Relevant to thread topic, yep.

Hello. Warm wishes and such as always.

A few thoughts.

Good decision on cutting down and re-purposing some boards. It has shifted activity into more concentrated areas, which I think make for faster/more active boards/threads.

I like the addition of the site 'boop' reply notification.

As has been said, the site has been smoother as of late with only minor hiccups. Enjoying things very much.

A contest might not be needed, but I think a few of the site members are musically inclined. Maybe we could have a thread for them to show off a little of their musical talents. In the past, I've seen people post vocaroo links to their guitar playing or singing. It might be neat to hear people from various boards show us what they can do. Though I'd have no idea how to motivate them or how to even get the message to them to see if there is enough interest for a music/singing/etc thread. No prizes needed, just would be a fun thought having the music talents of mlpchan post in a single thread or something, if they would post at all.
Nonetheless, I like listening to people if they have any interest to share it.

There do seem to be a few problem posters as far as lewd content is concerned, mainly occurring in /oat/'s b and friends. And while most do stop when told by mods, others just ignore it or brush it off only to do similar a few days later. I'd rather not name names as I don't think it's in the spirit of the thread, but I do appreciate how most of the rest follow the rules as best they can.
For the problem posters, I just don't know what will solve it. I don't think adding more mods will solve the problem, because there will always be times when all the mods are away, and reporting during that time simply would do nothing. Other times, there are posters that post NSFW pics and then just try to delete them fast, so by the time the report goes through, or others have commented, the link turns green. I feel this is cheating the site rules and still shouldn't be allowed and I wish there was a way to stop it.
Maybe there aren't enough reporting it at once, but it's just frustrating that nothing can be done at the moment of the infraction. I'm not talking about extended bans or anything, but maybe a swifter reply system somehow to note to the user 'We know' and to knock it off. Like maybe mods could flag trouble users' IPs, without ever mentioning who the users are, and then if they get reported by enough people in a short time span, an automatic popup or something would appear, or a mini-ban, or something just to discourage that poor behaviour. Something serving just as an acknowledgement warning.
I think there can be a way that doesn't need or involve more mods or janitors or whatever. I'm just not smart enough to think up how to code the site being able to detect it. Anyone having any AI class experience care to share?
And I have no idea how to stop posters using proxies as I've seen one specific older user, that doesn't care since being familiar with the local mods, just come right back from a ban via proxy. In that case, reporting doesn't help much and sometimes I don't even do it because I know nothing is going to happen to said user.

Semi-related to bans, is there any way that /moon/ can be cleaned up a little? Or make it more presentable? Obviously it's not high priority or anything, but there are locked threads just sitting there of no use. Or ones that no one uses anymore. Not that /moon/ needs more activity or anything, but I think it'd do well to just have a single active thread there. So posters that got banned can clearly post or complain or whatever there. Without those other old threads cluttering up the rest of /moon/ board. Maybe there is a purpose to the older threads there after all. I dunno.

Coding note for Macil that I've mentioned before, there still seems to be page tab-related slowdown when in Quick-Reply Box posting mode. Certain large large pictures just slow down everything on the page. I can't scroll up or down fast. I can't type fast. Like nothing seems to work so long as the picture is loaded into the QR Box.
When I close the giant vector picture, but keep the QR Box open the problems of slowdown suddenly stop, so there has to be something awry with that pic-loading QR Box for the really big pics. Or it's just my browser or compy :/

Maybe re-open some of the top banner pictures to new artistic creations? I remember there was an old thread dedicated to it and it produced some good results. And it would be fitting to add some new banner pics with a new S4 approaching. Not that the ones now are completely stale or are highly important features, but something new every now and again, or something new to laugh at would be fun.

On a more thread-specific note, /pony/ after dark has been debating the merits of going to a cyclic-style type of thread. Some are for it, others are not. The main issue is that if it goes cyclic, the ability to add new questions in the OP would be lost and that's something that has been a bit of tradition just to do every day.
The cyclic would also help with clutter on /pony/ as the old /p/ad threads just sit there to die after the next new day. It would also help keep the "View All" more manageable instead of 600+ or 700+ posts with pic all trying to load at once, which cause my browser at least to stutter or not load things manageably.

So I was wondering, is it possible to have a cyclic thread, where only the OP title pic and OP questions could be changed every day - by a different user? I know I'm asking for something that has been relegated to just creating a new OP every day, but I'd be interested if implementing a cyclic thread where the OP can be changed daily, would even be possible.
Such a feature obviously would be highly abused for any other type of OP thread on any other board and would not work, so I thought to ask if
first it was even possible,
second if it would be easily manageable for regular posters,
that maybe we might be able to demo such a thing on a trial-basis?
Wishful thinking at best, but at least I thought I'd ask…

Upset that Thony card never reached him. When does AppleAdmin come back?

Sometimes the site Directory can be a little slow to update. Clicking on /pony/ after dark still links up to the Nov 6th thread. Maybe that's our fault for not alerting those responsible for changing it. If so, how best to correct it?

Other than that, keep up the great work!!! All the work we can see (and can't) is appreciated very much.
If you've made it this far thanks for reading. Have a good day. <3

Indeed that's an issue, and one we can only do so much about. I'm getting less and less tolerant of that and eventually I'm afraid I'l just going to have to start storming down on /b/&f harder like I did at some point.

I'm friends with most people in the /b/&f community and I have never tolerated that, please report them. If the report does nothing, email me, and I'll investigate it, this is not acceptable in any way and this is the first time I hear about it.

All of the threads on /moon/ are locked besides the main one and the binary joke one. (There was another thread earlier that wasn't locked. I fixed that.)

I should add image bans. (And some of the mod interface stuff needs to be streamlined so it's quicker for us to use effectively.)

If you wait a minute after picking the image, is the page still slow? If it's still slow: does clicking the "Toggle reply queue" button (looks like a + on the top right of the QR) to hide the image preview fix the slowdown? I think I might know what the issue is and an easy way to help it. What's your CPU model? Do you get the issue in Firefox?

>So I was wondering, is it possible to have a cyclic thread, where only the OP title pic and OP questions could be changed every day - by a different user?

Really? You want to go down that road?
I just don't think that's the best idea.
Going only by the principle and effect of image banning.
It may just add to your problems.

However, it does sound like the mod interface needs to be streamlined.
I would recommend covering that first, regardless of which one is easier to do, for the sake of experimentation and for not resorting to image bans.

There was an image ban on one single non rule breaking image on 4chan recently and it caused the entire site to explode.

There are two things I've been meaning to ask about for a while:

It seems like every porn thread on /anon/ gets hit with anthro, whenever it was the intention. That was one of the things about /mlp/ I liked, yeah, we couldn't have NSFW, but at least it was kept fairly furf*g-free, and that kept me comfortable about browsing. Here, it's in nearly every thread, NSFW or not, but I know alot of people enjoy it, it's not my place to challenge them on having it. Can we get the rightclick->hide thread feature here in the catalog? And would I get in trouble if I were to create a porn thread that specifically prohibited anthro pictures?

Secondly, is it possible to create an alternative spoiler for NSFW? While I don't mind clicking a spoiler to find out if it's porn or an actual spoiler for S4, I have a strange feeling it may become an issue later on if it's a hybrid discussion/ porn dump thread.

I wonder if that's possible, or easy to implement, I'll wait for Macil's input.

>would I get in trouble if I were to create a porn thread that specifically prohibited anthro pictures?

No, and as a matter of fact you'd have every right to report people posting anthro in your thread if you specifically stated you didn't want any in your thread.
The same way an OP who doesn't tag his thread Mature has every right to demand full sfw-ness in his thread if he desires - though no one seems to do that on /anon/.

>is it possible to create an alternative spoiler for NSFW?

Well… I honestly wonder if it's worth it to add another tag when we already tolerate it spoilered. If you're gonna make a porn dump just do it in a #Mature thread, and well, isn't it part of the fun, not knowing what it is until you click it?

Seriously what criteria? I barely see mods doing mod stuff -witch I'm completely fine with it- and some mods can't even explain the rules they supposed to uphold -witch is not necessarily a bad thing by default but it makes "needing to fit a criteria" lose every credit-. Basically what you need is not someone with talent or intelligence but someone who you can trust and won't ban posters for his own entertainment and wouldn't stick his dick into other's argument, that's about it.

"talent" ? I hope you're not implying some people have a "talent" for moderation because I doubt moderating an internet imageboard about ponies can be considered talent-worthy.
We do require a certain level of intelligence and self control however, so I'm not sure of what your post was meant to say overall.

Let me properly introduce myself.

Also I'd like to be banned from /site/ again, in advance for derailing this thread.
You know, like how Macil banned me when he got tired of ditching my question?

Uh… Hi.

I'm not too large on giving feedback, given that I'm really a feeble personality with no real standout voice or anything… But I just want to say thanks for doing a great job with the deals given in the past.

I heard mention of some sort of musically-inclined get together sorta deal? I think that's fantastic. Not that I'm musically inclined, or anything, but I think that's a great opportunity for people like me who want to commune around the same type of people, get their material heard and have a place with a general musical influence. Is the idea to make that area a separate board, like /mu/? Because I could definitely move TMT over there and perhaps get some better traffic than on /oat/ where it always gets passed up.

The only issue is that I wont be around to see this event's birth. Speaking of not being around…

How's Anonthony doing? I just read he's done with BMT and he'll be back soon, which is great. Hope he had fun. I may have glanced over it, but it seems like there were little to no updates on his situation outside of that initial "Yo, let's send Thony a pone card." Like, did he ever get it? And if so, did they tease him about it in the shower room? These are questions that needs answers.

On the topic of /oat/ moderation, I'd like to say that Tom… And, really I haven't seen the other mods around there in a while, has been doing a really great job in keeping a level head and sticking out his beefed-up moderator chest when it came to the current waves of shitstorms. Thanks for that. And an apology, on my part, for my role in the ordeal seems necessary.

Sorry for being a shithead. Nobody deserved to put up with that whole mess.

Wish I had something else to contribute, but seems like most of the good ideas have been said already. Unless you wanna hear my suggestion about an automatic .gif player.

If you keep being baselessly aggressive like that, sure, there's a warning at the top of the thread, I suggest you read it.
You're constantly being blatantly aggressive and acting like it's okay because you do it all the time. It's not, and if you're harassing someone we're not gonna make it any easier on you because you get in our faces and attack us, before you start slandering us when we point out what you're doing.
But anyway this conversation doesn't belong in this thread, if you have an issue with a ban that was issued you can contact macil about it.

He apparently never got the pone card however he did get the rest of the mail we sent him, he also posted on MLPchan recently, and replies to mail you send him.

Imagine the poster you like less, now imagine they have the power to embed videos. As much as they want. In autoplay, if they so desire.
I've had people asking me to embed a video in their OP for certain threads and I absolutely don't mind doing it, it just seems like it's the kind of thing that you wouldn't want to see spammed around the board…

Wait, he was on here? Must've missed him.

And… I see what you're saying, that's always a risk, some faggot decides to annoy the shit out of someone for the lulz by spamming embeds. But it seems like there's always been some sort of medium here between regular activity and shitposting. It's not like those trolls are currently denied any other form of spam, yet the most activity we see from them is just text anyway, especially on /oat/. Haven't heard of anyone using video embeds as a harbinger of their grisly plots.

But that's if I was asking for the entire video to show up when posted. The way I had it in mind was the way 4can does it, where it has the link and you have to click the embed to make it show up. Is that not possible?

You're not my real mom!

But fine, I'm not a huge fan of shitposting, anyways. So, site related? I agree the number of /p/ads on /pony/ is rather absurd and makes finding older threads next to impossible. However, I do like them being on /pony/, it being our "home" and whatnot, so I'm conflicted. Cyclic could work, but it has its issues and we/they would really have to come to a conclusion of some sort about what to do here. Someone mentioned possibly deleting the old threads, which could kind of work, but it would add some extra work for the mods.

I don't really do /oat/ so I can't speak about the situation there, but I'd like to see /pony/ cleaned up just a little bit, especially with the new season coming up and possibly hopefully more threads popping up. I haven't been over here for a while and certainly am not being as active on /pony/ proper as could be, but I want the board to look better, and be better.

That's my angle, and considering what I do here that's all I can really comment on.

Let me start by saying I agree with you about /p/AD. That said, it's not going to happen. /p/AD has been afforded certain privileges due to them outdating the site itself (they come from Ponychan). One of these privileges is the right to exist on /pony/, despite belonging on /oat/.

Oh yeah, you meant the thread. Right. What Dashbrown said. Also it was originally supposed to be the thread for /pony/ posters to "channel their more chatty side to avoid derailing the actual threads", so it makes some sense for it to be where the community is, no?

Mid to low range from a few years ago I think, so it isn't really super old.
Think the issue might be addressed now so all should be fine.

>lewd b&f
Yeah I guess I vented a little too much. I don't wish to cause the mod team any more hassle or work with that. Extra burdens stink.

>people ban evading because friends

Haha probably said it wrong, my fault. Not that the person I'm thinking of gets a free pass because they are friends, moreso they're used to the way things are done around here and they just don't seem phased by a small ban or have proxied back quickly to get in another few words before leaving again or posting a final nsfw image as a :P to everyone before leaving. Alright, will continue to do so and will keep that in mind. Thank you

>/moon/ clean

Thank you. Looks much better.
>lag QR box
Think it's better now too. Yay


Ok sounds good. Interesting to see what Macil will say.

You're welcome. Thanks for the opportunity to give some site feedback. You too♥


>mod stuff

thank you again

>qr image, huge vector size, performance

yeah, it was slow. tried it at intervals of 5 and 10 minutes one time just waiting and it only stopped after deleting the image in the QR Box. Never thought the switch images with the + sign. I only ever would really load one image at a time, so I can't say.
Just a regular Sandy Bridge CPU. I thought those seemed fast enough for most other things I've done and I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember the last time I've been on this site using Firefox

Sorry, haha. Maybe someday

I think /p/ad can be fine too. Just throwing the idea of the cyclic w/ changing OP out there, since it might have solved some of the issues that both sides were arguing over. Maybe not, I dunno…
Still lots of old dead /p/ads cluttering up the /pony/ board…

Thank you Macil. ♥

In the very first episodes, everyone was about to celebrate the Summer Solstice with Celestia, so it only seems somewhat fair that Luna get similar treatment at the Winter Solstice. Luna isn't all about the Moon, just like Celestia isn't just about the Sun. She holds great power over the night in general, such as the ability to visit ponies in their dreams who are having nightmares.


its simple.

Well I mean I wouldn't go as far as to label something like that "beyond ridiculous". After all, the front page of the site itself defines the topic of /pony/ to be "The Show". Perhaps moving /p/ad is not a solution, but it seems like a glaring conflict of interest for one to only find that the discussion points for /pony/ ("show, its episodes, characters and canon" as written on the front page) can only be found in, well, only half of the threads on the board.

At the very least, I would suggest finding a solution to push off the dormant threads. They're almost immediately dead weight once the next thread is opened.

Maybe create a #/p/ad tag that..

On the condition of which the thread is over 24 hours old AND has already been superseded by another newer tagged thread, the former thread is autolocked and is assigned an internal 3 hour timer. Once the timer hits zero, it is automatically moved to a hidden locked deletion board that's only one page long.

Why would that be preferable?

DM 12526

Well, because a janitor is all that's really needed. The biggest problems on /anon/ are foalcon and stupidity. A janitor could deal with the foalcon, and not even mods can fix stupidity. Having a mod just for /anon/ is like hitting a ten penny nail with a 12 pound sledge. Overkill.

Fair enough. Just trying to help.

!!Fluttershy 12529

We don't have a big enough staff to need janitors and mods.
We're more a bunch of buddies who all make sure we always have at least one person watching over the site at all times.
Doing a hierarchy would be very unnecessary, one of us is always "in charge", as in, responsible of taking some decisions for everyone (Usually Anonthony, and me at the moment) but yeah we're all equal.
The thought's appreciated though.

One of our mods is very familiar with the old /mlp/ community and they moderate /anon/ mostly, yes.

Anonymous 12530


I think most people on /anon/ would agree that the less mod intervention we have on our board, the better. Things are going fine right now, people start really stupid threads sometimes but usually others are smart enough to not continuously bump them, so they fall onto the back of the board pretty quickly. One of the biggest things about /anon/ is self-moderation, and I think we're very good at it.


>The biggest problems on /anon/ are foalcon and stupidity.


How is that a problem exactly? It has been addressed multiple times–the mods have told us that they will turn a blind eye to foal/fillycon as long as we don't make a big deal out of it. We have our CMC loli/fillycon general but out of respect for the mods we rarely actually post explicit images, we don't even use the Mature tag. It's just harmless text stories. I really don't see how that's a problem.

Sweetie 12531

I hear that Scruffy guy is a hard working mod. You should pick him up.

!!Fluttershy 12532

We understand that and let /anon/ solve itself whenever possible, if you feel like moderation's increased lately or anything it's probably our fault for doing a poor job then.

It does sound good. There's some sense in wanting the old thread around, but I can't see needing more than the one previous thread. (For a non-automated solution, we could just report the PAD two PADs ago to be manually moved by a moderator. Since that would only happen once every day or two, it shouldn't pose a huge hassle.)

Old PADs don't clutter the front page if /pony/ is active, but they do make it clumsier to find old discussion threads you might want to necromance.

As far as I know,
PHP is used for standalone staff pages, parsing submitted forms, and uses quite a few data objects as opposed to kusaba x. The way the board indexes are created, and the threads themselves, are done under the same template. You have to rely on javascript to do board specific stuff.

Twig is used for templating. Not much I can say about Twig, as I've never used it before.

SQL for databasing, but you probably won't have to worry about that.

Javascript and jQuery for quite a number of things including displaying the [+50] replies, reformatting the timestamp, the entire inline extension written by milky, the settings, hiding individual posts, and so on…

localStorage for the thread watcher and saving your settings

So yeah, with the exception of localStorage, it's a pretty typical free web architecture.

I'm fairly confident that the principal key to having an increase in traffic is by achieving relevance and to have a community gleaming with enthusiasm. Not just to the degree of which your newcomers are here to stay or to make your currently residing users happy, but to give outsiders a reason to come in. MLPchan, for the most part, spread in popularity via word of mouth, where current members are more interested to stay when they bring new people here themselves.

We need to advertise, I guess. Bring in new people. Show them what we have to offer..? Otherwise, we can only count on new members coming from /mlp/ and ponychan, and that's not really new members, it's just shuffling what we have around.

I wouldn't expect to see an increase in traffic from any efforts, however. We're on the tail end of the phenomenon now.

Where can I find out when my little pony shows? 12603

If you want to bring some random people to the site, we could start watermarking the site logo to some mlp pictures subtly.

Then spread them around the internet, it might get picked up by people who would post them without looking too closely at the watermark. Then they would google the website name.

You would have to for example start posting the watermarked pictures in replacement for your normal pictures you post elsewhere or on your steam profile picture or something.. Not sure if anyone would actually do this but if they wanted to help get new people they could try that.

Another idea is get the newest pictures / memes from deviant art and elsewhere as they come out and post them to one of the webpages here with some SEO keywords and then when people search for those terms or reverse image search the picture mlpchan will come up in Google

I think it would be better to just buy adspace somewhere other than /mlp/ or Ponychan. I really don't know where though.

!!Fluttershy 12605

The watermark thing is a thing 9gag does.
Don't get me wrong, it works. But as a content creator myself and someone who knows about copyright laws - it's entirely outrageous for the people who made these pictures, and unethical.

However going in the direction of promoting some artists wouldn't be such a bad idea. If they post their content here, or redirect their commissions to /art/ for example.
The issue not being that we don't have artists, but that they simply don't use MLPC as a platform for their art in majority because /art/ is pretty inactive at the moment.

Anonymous 12606

Speaking of art, "teach people who don't normally draw/edit/write to draw/edit/write" could potentially pull a lot of interest, as well as expand the creative range of current users.

1. do things that people want to be part of
2. make sure people know you're doing it.

speaking of more traffic; It might be a good idea to buy an ad at pony countdown again.

I agree with you on the ethics of watermarking other people's stuff.
What if file-names had the site name in them? like tumblr does.

This would be nice It's the sort of thing that can only happen from the bottom up though.

Not sure if right thread for this, but the things that I'd like to see for this site
1) Have it so settings can be exported as urls (so that they can be bookmarked). I use private browsing, so I always have to reset my settings when I visit (I basically check everything in and have to deal with that annoying mature content popup)
2) Make /anon/ default NSFW. I feel like someone who comes here for the first few times doesn't even know about the mature filter in the settings. Therefore, they wouldn't even see the activity in those threads. This might make them feel as though the board is just dead.

Anonymous 12659

Literally the first 9/10 threads on /anon/ are marked #mature. If someone who has never been to mlpchan goes there, they will likely think "wow this board is dead"


File: 1384581779884.png (174.65 KB, 371x443, Uh, really.PNG)

Unless that actually looked at the homepage, where it's all explained. But who has time for that.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 12662

But they already show the instant you mouse over them!

A few weeks ago I proposed a change to /anon/: Names are changed to Anonymous and tripcodes are removed in replies, unless the tripcode matches the thread OP tripcode, or if the thread OP post has the #names tag in it. Though there didn't seem to be much demand for it.

1) Are there really enough settings to warrant that? After filters are implemented I'll make sure that functionality exists.
2) I get the concern, though the first line in the /anon/ directory sticky is bolded and mentions that setting, and the homepage mentions it a few times. The default of off isn't going to change, but I'm welcome to suggestions for helping in highlighting the existence of the setting.

I don't think those features warrant shortcuts.

>The default of off isn't going to change, but I'm welcome to suggestions for helping in highlighting the existence of the setting.
Why don't you make a pop-up asking people who visit /anon/ for the first time if they want Mature threads on ?

Sometimes I like copying people's filenames, and it makes it frustrating to try to highlight if it autohides like it does now.

Let's check.

>Are there really enough settings to warrant that
Are there more than zero settings?

>I get the concern, though the first line in the /anon/ directory sticky is bolded and mentions that setting, and the homepage mentions it a few times
uh huh. And there's a sticky on /hm/ saying no self pics and a sticky on /s/ saying no requests and people get banned for doing just that and go "why i got ban?"

>I don't think those features warrant shortcuts
I think they do. It would sure free up my clipboard.
Because >>12655

Those people will see the pop up every time.
