So I'm super fucking late to find out about this all. Questions:

Will any of the current themes from here make it over to Ponychan? (I always loved the Pinkie one here)

Will all current threads transfer over? Like if there's an ongoing RP thread here, will that just get moved, or is shit fucked and needs to start over again?

How soon can we expect things to get moved?

The merged site is going to use mlpchan's code base, so the threads and themes from here should copy over with zero problems. Transferring threads and themes from current Ponychan is presumably part of the technical challenge Macil is working on.

Um, no. There would be a huge culture clash; MLPchan is largely populated by nor/mlp/eople displaced by the Scruffening, a population likely to view Ponychan as a hugbox full of Hasdrones.

MLPchan isn't primarily scruffed /mlp/eople, though I dunno why you'd assume that population is any more brittle or ill-informed than any other.

Well... okay. I mean, post wherever the fek you like. Ain't no rules about that.

I'm not about to hop on the "I hate Flash" bandwagon just yet though. Because...

Then again, the same could be said about webm files. In fact, flash support is even wider in comparison, considering that you have to install the webm codec separately to make it run on anything Apple-branded (regardless of whether or not you're using Firefox or Chrome), or anything Microsoft branded (IE), so good luck if you're working for IT and don't have other options.

>Bible thump

The show itself is still Flash based, almost entirely from start to finish. And it probably will be that way until the series is over. Why? Well, if you're involved in a project where all of your assets are confidential and not web-based in the first place, what real reason would you have to care?

Thirdly, despite what people may think of Flash, looking at it from the outside in, the reality of it all is the fact that not just a majority, but literally almost every last fan animator out there still uses it. You can find plenty of flash projects in the fandom. Many thousands of them. I've only ever seen one, or maybe two html5-based animation projects out there though of any sufficient level of completion.

C'est la vie. We're not ready for alternatives just yet.

Is there something to discuss?
I thought those were an "anyone can make whatever" kind of thing.

No, we need it at least a week earlier to contain all hype and guessing what will happen in the first episode.

So tell me. When Season 5 starts, why should I come here instead of /mlp/? It's freer? Well, I'm not one who likes to spam clop everywhere, so I don't care.

Even with both Ponychan and MLPchan combined this place will be slower than /mlp/. I just don't see what I should be doing here.

You know you can come here AND /mlp/, right? Your browser has multiple tabs for a reason

There is no good reason to come to mlpchan.
There is no good reason to come to /mlp/ either.
There is no good reason to waste your time anywhere on the Internet.

I would stop visiting this shithole if I could.

I think they're waiting for the end of this month. And don't forget that there's a lot of administrative stuff to deal with in order to make this merger happen.

It's mostly the technical stuff that's being waited on, pretty much whenever Macil says it's ready is when it's ready.
