Ponychan-MLPchan Merger >>>/site/15219

Ponycountdown ad Tom' the /♥/ bringer 12708

Hey guys, I don't usually do this, but I thought this was worth mentioning.
As S4 gets closer, I try to advertise for the site. I've been talking with RainbowCrash from /r/mlp about a partnership, and have also been buying ad space on Ponycountdown.

Now the money that goes into this is _not_ money from your donations, it's my own cash. Other sites - that make big profits - seem to want that ad space as well, however I've been holding up against them thus far. What's currently happening is, well, the ad space cost is rising as the episode gets closer, and I can't possibly sustain it myself.

I'm not going to get some big stickies going for this, this is more of a request as a member doing something for the site than as acting admin: If you want to donate to support our Ponycountdown advertisement, you can send paypal payments here: [email protected] or in Bitcoin at 14pK6z9z6jBxUnUc1jhAibd8DrJXNa6L8Q
Every single dollar will be used for the advertisement, and if donators want any proof they can email me at [email protected] to see receipts.

Time to find my paypal info!

How exactly does buying a slot work? It sounds like you get the slot only till someone outbids you.
so the best thing to do is outbid everyone by a cent the moment the ad changes 'till they realize they aren't gonna get anything for their money and go away.

>I've been talking with RainbowCrash from /r/mlp about a partnership,

Maybe talk to the guys at bronystate? They are our "official" stream after all.

Uh…what exactly does that mean? A lot of people on /anon/ reeealllyyy don't like Reddit.

How it works:
- You say how much a day's advertisement is worth to you
- If you're the one with the highest bid, you're automatically on the ad, charged per second.
- if someone outbids you, they replace you.
- There is a different bid for each server (US, Canada, EU, Rest of the world)

We currently have Canada and EU. Waging war for the US.

If anything happens it'll be /oat/-oriented. /anon/ doesn't have to worry.

>If anything happens it'll be /oat/-oriented. /anon/ doesn't have to worry.

Oh, okay. That makes sense. I worry very easily, and although I try not to jump to conclusions, there are still people on /anon/ who flip their shit at the mention of anything Reddit-related. I myself don't even know much about the site, other than that it's supposedly extremely "liberal"/feminist/politically correct or whatever.

Anonymous 12714

That's understandable, they also have a bunch of artists and cool people.

The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 12715

There's a huge ideological gulf between Reddit and 4chan.
It's like /mlp/ and ponychan except the differences are ingrained in the way the sites work, not just users or staff.

What is the target goal, Tom?

Nvm. I found it myself.

Great ads! xD 12719

Well, your ads are doing work! I got here from them acctually even thought I don't understand anything it seems cool! :D I haven't used a single chan website before so I don't know any of this /ehrmehrgerd/ stuff ._.

How are we going to attract users who will enjoy /anon/ but also not shit the place up? /anon/ needs some love too.

Your best bet would be /mlp/, maybe some small time beast forums would get along with /anon/.

Thing is, people in general look for 4chan when they want that kind of atmosphere.
/anon/ needs something to set it apart, aside from metrical fuck-tons of porn and freedoms.

In the long run, if s4 don't pick shit up i believe /anon/ needs to accommodate and adapt, not the posters.

Anonymous 12724

That's a tough one.
The truth is, outside /mlp/ and 4chan itself, that's gonna be hard
Gee I wonder why mlpchan is having a LoL tournament with /mlp./ right now

According to a recent poll, there are about 50 active users on /anon/ in the past few months.

If there's anything I agree with moot on that he has said before, it's that having your favorite website be more obscure compared to ridiculously popular is probably better. He actually said that he wouldn't care if 4chan slipped off the radar and went back to having only 30 or so users like in the beginning, and I'd have to say that makes sense.

I've said this several times before–the larger the userbase, the more inevitable shitposting and spam will become–and I don't mean the fun kind of shitposting, I mean the people who ruined 4chan boards like /mu/ with all that "*tips fedora*" kind of bullshit.

So yeah even though /anon/ is slow as hell, it's still pretty much my favorite place on the internet. My hope is that when people realize there is more to it then just pony porn, they will come to it. For example we have threads about music, video games, visual novels, other cartoons we like, etc. If anything it's more of an off-topic board as opposed to just /mlp/ with porn, which I think is how a lot of people view it (and to be fair, they have a point).

But the more people we can bring to /anon/ to talk about things other than ponies and pony porn, but still have that as the "uniting factor", the better I think it will be.

Anonymous 12728


Well, to be honest, if porn is a turnoff for someone, then /anon/ is not the place for them at all.

That said, a lot of people like pony porn, I mean just look at how much of it there is on Paheal.

We need but a few more years of continual production of porn at this rate to out-do porkymon.

The growth and spread of pony porn is nothing but explosive.
The shear amount that gets spitted out from the bowels of the Internet is astonishing.

Anonymous 12738

you're missing the point that the people who are turned off by porn aren't the kind of people that would go to /anon/ anyway
and also, mature is turned off by default. There isn't really any porn without it on.


File: 1385069736917.png (60.86 KB, 477x558, 4.png)

Now it says we're winning all the categories with a bid of $10. That wasn't that hard. Guess the winning US one expired.

>you're missing the point that the people who are turned off by porn aren't the kind of people that would go to /anon/
I'm not missing that point, sir. I think I'm living proof of that point, actually.

Heh, I would have chosen to advertise on derpibooru first, but this works too. The only reason being is that derpibooru, for obvious reasons, has an existing community that is already very tolerant to rule 34 of well, pretty much anything pony related. Also they seem like the type of audience to be geared towards how imageboards work. After all, their site, though not in bulletin board format like this one, is an imageboard itself.

And to add, much of their community consists of people who are artists. They do have a forum on derpibooru, but users don't get the luxury of posting images on them like they can over here. http://derpiboo.ru/art/ Though, it would be nice to extend our file type support if this ever did happen. (.psd's maybe?)

Not only that but their servers are so ridiculously expensive (like $700 a month expensive) so you might end up seeing that money going to a partially better cause.

You realize you posted the same Sweetie Belle image like five times already right?


File: 1385092227723.png (60.86 KB, 477x558, 4.png)

Yep. DeskSweeties are one of my signatures. Thanks for counting though. You're helpful.

Anonymous 12745

One of the things that kind of worries me about advertising is if new users come to /anon/ and basically "screw up" when they first start posting (using names, emoticons, calling themselves bronies etc.) then they will probably get ripped to shreds by other users, such as with that recent new guy Pryda. /anon/ can be a very unforgiving place when it comes to that, and even though it's for good reason, I think it could discourage new users from trying to settle in there. Although /anon/ is a relatively easy place to get used to, especially if you're from 4chan.

Anonymous 12746

I'm not sure it's absolutely necessary but maybe some sort of quick primer on imageboards or mlpchan could help some of the possible newcomers. Don't really know what I would include, though, or who'd write it. I doubt just "lurk more" would be very helpful and that's all I can think of now. Just throwing this out there.

Nah. No monies.
If you'd still like to donate, however, I can use all that money on ad space - and provide proof to you by email, again.

Tom' the /♥/ bringer 12813

But if you want to donate for the site donating with the big donate button, for server costs is just as good.

Did you guys consider doing ads for derpibooru?

We don't do ads much, because we don't have the money for it, because we are non profit.

Since you're here dropping by steam would be nice, in the near future, I still have two contests to throw

Moar? You want moar?!

Well, I'm about to sleep now. I've got class tomorrow. I'm usually on steam though, when I'm online. Is it not working? No, it is. I was talking to Irish. Anyways, just grab me sometime you see me online (which actually isn't that often lately) or track me down on the other /p/AD while I'm at school. Or there's my email up there, if you get really desperate. I'm not difficult to find.
