Site updates, new board and more! !!Fluttershy 6705

Hello mlpchan!
After a few community discussions, we are going to implement a few new features. We're very excited to bring you those and I hope you guys will enjoy them!

First and foremost, as you may have noticed, we have a new board: >>>/ooc/ - Out of Character - Roleplay planning. The growing /rp/ community has been asking for a planning and announcements board as seen here >>6651, so we're giving it a try, see how it pans out!

Then, we want to discuss /fan/. The imageboard format has never been the most fitting for fanwork projects, and this board hasn't really provided a needed space for that audience, most of whom maintain such things on places like deviantArt or traditional forums.
While we could simply remove it or unlist as unneeded space, we could also try to re-purpose the board before doing anything like that. Nothing would make us happier than seeing /fan/ develop its own community.
One of our ideas is to turn it into a feedboard, getting updates from EQD, EquestriaAfterDark (after our Mature filter, of course) and other feed sources for example… But we feel we could do better.
Would it interest you guys? And if not - what would you like to see on /fan/ if you have ideas of your own?

Site filter, developed by Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash, will be implemented very soon as well, as the code for it simply needs to be tweaked by our very own Mac'.

Finally, I'd like to update you guys on a site-wide announcements system, it has been widely asked for, and we did get a few ideas on it. It is pretty high on the priority list, so expect updates soon.

If you have any input on those matters - please, post them here! ♥

Might I propose something a wee bit bold for /fan/?

The script itself is, as I understand it, almost done. It just needs to arrive into Macil's hands, at which point he'll tweak it and implement it.

As we're still waiting on Legendary to communicate the script to us, I can't tell you when though.

Ok well this might seem a lil weird but how bout trying to merge pony with fan since they are technically both disusing pony and pony related projects? Just a thought.

ah okay

thank you

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6851

Filter is complete.
Macil should sorry D: have the code by tonight.
From then, all he has to do is write a UI (which is not hard at all, given he actually knows the back end of the site) so assuming he gets it tonight, you can see full implementation after a few days.
Once again, sorry this took so long.
I had something that was completely presentable for you, then my laptop broke.
Lost everything.
So it's done being rewritten, and as soon as I'm sure it's all fully functional and everything, I'll hand it over to mac.
at the very latest it'll be tomorrow morning
Cross my heart and hope to fly
Stick a cupcake in my- OUCH

Filter code is public

Does that mean we can set up custom filters?

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6861

Well, technically yes, but the system I have is pretty tight, which is to say, you'll have to change my rule system to actually set up anything custom. I mean, the code already allows trip, name, email, and subject filtering, so I don't think there's much else you could really want to add. Unless you add something which can filter words found in the body of the post table. But that's kinda pointless.

any news on filter?

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6880

Its finished, its out, its publicly available, were just waiting on macil for implementation.

oh okay

Anonymous 6887

To be honest though, just glancing at the code, the easy part is the 'filter' part, just telling the code how to filter, and 90% of the work is instituting a UI for it which you left for him. Not to be mean or anything but even the filter part isn't quite perfect either. I wouldn't expect this to be happening ASAP, since what's left is actually the majority of the 'work' and probably some changes to the easy, filter part that weren't right..

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6888

I'll see what I can do about lightening macs load.
If you have any suggestions as to what you'd like to see changed/done, be my guest to ask.

Anonymous 6934

So yeah… Whatever happended to the filter being implemented?

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6935

I don't know about macil, but I haven't been online much lately because real life has been eating all of my time forever.
and I don't think I'll be much available for a while still.
I can't say for certain, but I'd imagine macil has been working on it.
