Input and Suggestions !!Applejack ## Admin 14011[Last 50 Posts]

We haven't reached out to seek your input and suggestions lately, and I think it's a good time to do so with the season having recently ended.

To that end, the floor is yours in the thread for anything related to site matters you want to discuss or bring up. Policy, content, activities, moderation, administration, technical matters, features wanted or changed, etc.

Consider it spring cleaning and airing of whatever's on your mind.

There's one technical bug that's really… bugged me.
On the mobile version of the site, every time you press a post number to make a reply it will automatically scroll to the top of the thread.
This happens even if Quick Reply is enabled and is really fucking annoying.

Maybe also add more themes.

I had a better idea a while ago but it got shot down.

I wanted there to be a /general/ board, where all the generals, serials, non-specific porn dumps, and other frequently recurring threads could go.

I think /anon/'s front page is appalling and I feel like moving the serials/generals could really improve the kinds of discussion had there. People could find more specific, random or just generally interesting threads easier and maybe they would get more than five posts before being knocked off by generals.

I don't say this out of ill will towards generals, because there are some generals I follow as well, in fact I write for them, but I just think this is a good idea.

I don't see how it would necessarily slow down /anon/ either, because people who already post both in generals/RP and in other threads can STILL do that, just on two different boards now.

I personally post on both /anon/ and /oat/, however I consider /anon/ my "home board" (I'm an /mlp/ refugee since mid-last year) and I would say /anon/ needs some cleaning up.

I'm too much of a good goy guy to get myself banned from 4chan intentionally.

I think generals/serials belong with all the other threads… unless the thread does not want newcomers, in which case it should go in a hidden board like /space/. The current method of bumping does a good job of keeping serials from dominating the front page, while still giving new eyes a chance to see 'em.

Now, if a particular serial is unwelcoming to new posters, that's a bit of a problem. No sense exposing your thread to new eyes if you don't want the new eyes in your thread.

I'd rather not split traffic up between more boards currently. I've been trying to alleviate the issue of long-running generals taking up the top board space always through other means.

It's just that 99 percent of the time, almost all of the threads on the front page of /anon/ are generals, CYOAs, porn dumps, role-playing, random shitposting and then maybe a couple decent threads about stuff that's actually interesting.

I just think that if we want to garner more traffic to /anon/ then we really need to capitalize on the "ANYTHING GOES" part and stop having the same shit over and over every day.

I personally try to start a lot of threads about lots of different things, I start a thread almost every day, I have one about pick-up lines (in a humorous way), one about video games, one about other shows that people watch besides MLP, one about anime, one about "personal blogging" where I asked people to just share random unimportant stories from their recent lives, one about having a tiny dick, one about upcoming movies, one about music…

Not every thread I start is great, of course I shit/funpost sometimes but that's the beauty of freedom, and my point is I keep trying to start good threads about all kinds of different subjects but they don't get many replies and keep getting knocked back by all the other stuff I mentioned in the beginning of my post.

I think seeing the /anon/ front page the way it is now could be very off-putting to new users, and unfortunately a lot of people don't have the brains to check the catalog and see that there is MORE to this site.

I was curious about whether that was true. So I checked. That's just from the first page, and the first handful of threads I looked at. They match the three threads you mention, in just three threads of their own.

While I have no desire for Porn to infest /oat/, if it is up for suggestion, I wouldn't mind if suggestive material was allowed. Basically, nudity would be okay, but nothing explicit. No actual sex, no masturbation or anything. But nipples or genitalia that isn't being used for a sexual act would be okay.

With an specific rule of no 'image dumps' on /oat/.

Came here a few months ago and took it for a test drive.

Basically, none of the features worked. Can't change settings, navbar is fubar, etc.

Tried disabling add-ons, change various combinations of settings, etc. Nothing worked.

Came back now. Enabled javascript (noscript FF extention) for mlpchan.net only, that's the only change I made in my browser, and found things are running smoothly. The bare requirements I want are all there, and there's a rich feature set now available to explore.

Someone really bused their ass to get things working, and working well. Good job guys. Keep this up and I think you'll see a slow but steady crossover of users and contributors.

Now, if only /fic/ could be resurrected, but that wasn't a problem with the site mechanics I think.

/fic/ gave reviews and feedback on fanfics at author request. That's pretty cool, but it doesn't play to the strengths of an imageboard. Two people, limited back-and-forth.

Imageboards seem more amenable to short pieces written quickly, with lots of people writing and lots of people commenting. Requests. Maybe people editing/remixing/expanding other people's stuff, as is common with pictures. That sort of thing.

>it doesn't play to the strengths of an imageboard.

Agreed, that's been my observation. My comment about /fic/ shutting down is wistful, rather than a complaint.

Would have been nice though.

The arts cross pollinate, and image-board writing gives a little boost as well - when kept minimalistic.

I'm thankful they kept it read only, even if it's intended to be dropped in the future.

Now I'm seeing an impressively straightforward interface with solid functionality, and freedom of choice.

And that's not counting the positive cultural aspects.

Your patience isn't wasted.

Give it more time.

I've literally never had problems with the settings unless the thread watcher counts, and even that got fixed quickly after I brought it up on /site/.

That's another thing about this site, the mods are actually active in the community and don't just silently/arbitrarily ban people all the time.

But wait! There's more!

I enabled mlpchan.net (noscript/FF) and refreshed the sub-boards I had opened (/anon/ /pony/ /site/).

The "settings" part of the navbar did not show up. I tried a few things without having any effect on the problem, and I'm certain they were pointless except for the last thing I tried - I clicked "home".

Once on the root of the site (https://mlpchan.net/) the "settings" appeared, and then appeared in each open tab of a sub-board when a refresh for each completed. It is both accessible and working perfectly now.

Does the home/root of the site load something differently than site folders? Perhaps a full or specific key CSS load/reset is done only from a direct request to the site root?

For example, could this be the source of this problem -

And various others?

Could we have a /BANE/ board?

Clearly there are too many Bane threads on /oat/.

Esc to close settings Anonymous 14162

Really minor nit: could the Escape key close the settings dialog, equivalent to clicking the X in the corner of it, the same way it closes the quick reply dialog?

What ever happened to Tom, by the way? Regardless of whether he was modding the site or not, it's been an unusually long time since I last saw him here.

Took a leave of absence from the pony community as a whole. A much needed break, I suppose.

I figured I am not the only one that has this issue on occasion Thony.

I have some issues with hidden text when I want to shortcut key it up.

It brings up my saving options instead. Is there a way to fix this?

I know you come to /b/&F's so if you can let me know anything on my end I would greatly appreciate it.

What browser are you in? Are you using the quick reply? Are you sure your cursor is active inside the text box when you press ctrl+s?

>>14162
Good idea.

If the settings menu didn't show up, it's because the site javascript hadn't loaded.

Hey tarra, sorry to butt in here, but are you sure it's not coming from an extension you have installed? I remember you bringing up a very similar issue with keybinds on Ponychan X, and you mentioned that the issue only persists on Opera. I use Opera as my default browser and have never had any issues with any shortcuts of any kind on either site. In fact, to my understanding, I don't think anyone else has this issue either.

Could we please have a post form at the bottom of a thread page so I don't have to quote a post to make the quick reply box appear?

I know I could use persistent QR but it annoys me for some reason.

Whenever Im on my Tablet (Nexus 7) the "browse for images" button is really annoying to tap, it almost always mashes the spoiler image or Auto Mode. Dunno if this is the right place, but yeah maybe a fix for that

First the site was down, and now I can't access /pony/. What's going on?
