Mature content on /oat/ BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE 13376[View All]

/oat/ is no stranger to mature topics, I was wondering about the staffs current position on the idea of letting /oat/ have the same abilities when it comes to posting mature content on /oat/ as other boards such as /anon/ having to tag any thread made that will host those kinds of pictures and direct likes so they may be hidden to the posters who have not opted in to viewing them.

Do you think at some point soon or in the future you will change the rules to allow this to take place?

When people ask me this question it's usually more than they were expecting, which is the only reason I ask.

Anyway, you? Your big thing is acceptance. I get the sense that you have a strong urge to be accepted in life and few people give you the chance. You're very loyal but understated. People in general are impatient with you but the fact is you just want to be a part of something and you're eager to jump at the chance if you're ever given one. The reason you cling to me is because I accept you. And it's not out of pity or anything like that. It's because I can tell that you are a caring and passionate individual who is very unsure of himself. You fear that if you say or do the wrong thing you will drive people away, lose your shot at being accepted.

Your greatest fear is to be rejected by those you look up to, and from what I can tell you've faced a bit more rejection than you'd have liked in your life. Your sense of being 'eager to please' annoys some people because they don't understand your motives, and they assume you're just trying to bandwagon or yell 'me too' when in reality you are quite sincere, you just get mistaken for those who aren't and most people don't want to take the time to see the difference.

So yes, that is what I know about you.


close enough

Well, I already went over a big part of it last time.

Your constant posts here about controversial topics stems from the fact that you are going through a time in your life in which your gun feeling goes against what you've been taught to be right. You're looking for validation. You want someone to tell you which side you should trust because now you're unsure about either.

From that, I can gather that a lot of your life has been built around being told what is right and what is wrong, and being made to believe such things without hesitation. You don't like grey areas. You are comfortable with things being a moral black and white and you will constantly seek to divide the two as much as possible.

You don't like uncertainty. You actually don't even care if you're right or not. As long as things are in a state that makes you comfortable, you are more than happy to accept them as fact. In reality you're a person that fears conflict. Fears difference and change. You don't hate it, but you want to avoid it.

This is where your idea of 'not mixing the races' comes from. You like the purity because it comforts you. You know what it is and you don't want an uncertain element added to it. Your 'white pride' schpeal is the same thing. You know what it's like to be white, because you are. You know everything about it and because of that it is the only thing you wish to know. You do not mind if other people aren't, but you don't want them interfering with what you know.

Your greatest fear and the thing that makes you most uncomfortable is that you know at some point you're going to have to make a choice between your own personal happiness and your own personal comfort and it's a choice you don't want to have to make.

You'll have to make that choice when it gets to the point where you can no longer have both. A time will come when you need to make a choice. I don't know exactly when that will be but it will happen.

Like I said. I have a talent for understanding people on a level most people don't know exists.

my two cents as a newfag. I came from a short stint at /mlp/ straight to anon, and then to /oat/, which seems more my speed aside from my compulsion toward clop, which is a short click away when the my body is ready. /oat/ is a completely different atmosphere, and I didn't even realize you could post #NSFW in there with spoilers. That's pretty much the best of both worlds. I think it should be left alone.


File: 1394184467309.png (23.18 KB, 133x151, 33.png)

Oh it's not the money. That's not the problem. It's the acceptance. You won't be able to accept yourself because you are going to have to become something you hate if you want to go through that path. You don't see it now, but you will in time.

But if you manage to pull it off, kudos to you. I'm just saying don't expect it to be smooth sailing. I'm actually one of the lucky ones. I was born with a feminine build, in California, next to one of the biggest trans communities in the country and my life is still a living hell 90% of the time.

On topic: I support the sentiment of this idea.

I like this idea.

Don't want your resentment for stating this. 13502

>once again, requests to change by policy and de jure what is a matter of culture, choice and personal behavior
I'm sorry, but the state things are is your doing, posters. And always demanding that force-of-action take care of what you yourself should be personally responsible for in a place where you are given the privilege of freedom of action is exactly why it has been failing, and then devolves into a cyclical "this sucks" which requires even more whining for even further action (and the resulting stagnancy) which was all on your shoulders in the first place! But yes, sure, go ahead, keep crystallizing everything until you've got it divided up into the teensy little parts with only the tiny segments you particularly want to see or enjoy, casting the site and community in your own singular (yet conflicting) images and then scratch your heads as to why you're all alone and no one wants to play with you. And don't bother, you know, doing anything. Don't try to improve the environment of your own home, or whatever. Don't try to be inviting and bring fresh blood with their own ideas, perspectives, opinions, tastes, preferences and creativity. Don't actively promote your home as a good and fun place to be. Don't be a positive ambassador for where you reside. Don't bother taking any fucking pride in anything, or what you've been given, or have had for all this time.

/oat/ is, and has always been, a sfw social environment.
If you want to post and discuss nsfw material, there are boards for that. There is absolutely no sense in homogenizing boards because people don't wish to leave their 'home'.

Except /anon/ says they'll ban tripfags. That's a pretty big difference. Not allowing #Mature on /oat/ is basically a big fuck you to any tripfag who has a >G-rated sense of humor.

/oat/ is not G-rated. The rules for imagery are PG-13 or looser, and sexual topics can be discussed freely.

For that matter, /anon/ is completely open to tripfags. You just have to drop your trip when you post there.

If not roleplaying canon ponies (for some reason), or artfagging, you're not allowed to tripfag on /anon/. It's a locked sticky so it's admin enforced, and not up for discussion.

Also, I said a >G-rated sense of humor, not a <=G-rated /oat/. /oat/ allows PG-13, and unfunny discussion that's sexual. So people who are G-rated only are fine, but everyone else has to watch their step, figure out pointless and arbitrary distinctions some movie censors made decades ago. What I'm saying is if PG-13 is pushing it, then you need a lot more vanilla stuff than that before you can be sure it won't end in a banning. I didn't mean to imply that strictly PG-13 content wasn't allowed. A picture can be forbidden, despite being less mature than one that is allowed but cleverly makes use of the arbitrary distinctions.

Technically this picture is PG-13. spoilered because what the fuck

>If not roleplaying canon ponies (for some reason), or artfagging, you're not allowed to tripfag on /anon/
Not really true. Anyone writing, arting, roleplaying, or engaging in a discussion where there are multiple parties and therefore differentiating between individuals is needed can pop on a name, however temporary it might be.

It's the pointless name/tripfagging which is unwanted in the culture of the board, which, while we don't hand out punishments for going against the grain of, if done too much we do intervene and warn or more as needed.

As for pretty much everything in your second paragraph.. I'm having trouble comprehending. I don't know if I'm grasping what you're trying to say.

Skybrook!8MDcALmdno 13631


I don't really see where tripfagging could possibly be pointless in your scenario. If you aren't writing, arting, roleplaying, or engaging in a discussion with multiple parties, what the heck are you doing? I think it's a ban even for anon to post multiple threads that only they post in. Are people tripfagging, and then posting entire threads worth of nothing but talking to themselves? I can't say I've seen that before.

Anyway the sticky says nothing about "engaging in a discussion where there are multiple parties" so that's still not allowed.

What I'm saying in my second paragraph is that a PG-13 requirement in /oat/ and a ban on tripfagging in /anon/ is mean and not nice to tripfags who want to post stuff that might be PG-13 or higher.

Even if tripfags want to go anon to post R+ stuff to /anon/, they still have to go through a lot of trouble to remember to delete their trip only for /anon/, and replace it when going to any other board. There is about nothing more frustrating than posting Original Content on /art/, only to realize that you erased your trip to make /anon/ happy so your name doesn't get on it. And really, tripfags shouldn't have to switch to anon and post on /anon/ at all. /anon/ is for anonfags, not for tripfags forced to anonymize themselves. But since /oat/ won't let you do #Mature threads, /anon/ gets misused that way.

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 13632

>Anyway the sticky says nothing about "engaging in a discussion where there are multiple parties" so that's still not allowed.
Uh… I run this shit. If I say it's allowed, it's allowed. =\

The rest of it either seems to say "make /oat/ and /anon/ have exactly the same rules, just one for anons only and one for tripfags" or … some other possible solution I'm not seeing here.

Anonymous 13633


Hey I'm from /anon/ and I'm pretty sure you tripfag there all the time for no reason and seem to get no consequences.

It doesn't bother me THAT much because you're by far one of the least irritating name/tripfags /anon/ has ever had but it is really that much to ask to drop the name occasionally if you're gonna post there?

Skybrook!8MDcALmdno 13637


Well O.K. then. It'd help if it said so in the sticky. That's what I was going by. I didn't know you were the admin of /anon/.

I'll probably just hack up a user-script to force anon on /anon/ for me, so neither of us have to be flustered.


I stopped posting with that sticky going up, b/c thought it wasn't allowed.

Anonymous 13638

Names/trips really aren't the only different thing between /anon/ and /oat/. The whole mentality is different. I don't know what causes it really, and I definitely don't know how Anonthony manages being a part of both cultures as well as he does.

Combining /oat/ and /anon/ would be suicide for MLPchan.

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 13639

I started/run the whole site.

An Anonymizer is a fine option, if you make one and it's relatively bug-free pass it on to Macil and maybe we'll just throw it on for everyone who wants it.

> I definitely don't know how Anonthony manages being a part of both cultures as well as he does
Because I was a 4chan ponyfag long before I posted on Ponychan and came out of them with a good idea of what was wrong/not for me in both of them, and with an appreciation and understanding for the positives of both cultures, and a desire to serve both of those good things as best I could while trying to minimize the negatives, and provide a stable, well-cared for middle-ground so people wouldn't be forced to choose between one or the other extreme.

While that's more or less what we've done, I have to say I've fallen on my face more often than not and I wish I could go back and change a lot my mistakes. I'll do everything I can to make up for that and make continual progress towards what people want, if I can get a little help from those that actually want that improvement.

>Combining /oat/ and /anon/ would be suicide for MLPchan.
