/oat/meal and /mlp/ - Please read everything. !!Fluttershy ## Mod 7179Locked[Last 50 Posts]

As some of you may know or have noticed, we have had an influx of /mlp/ members on the site very recently. Those people are refugees from a ban storm going on their board and have chosen mlpchan as a safe haven.
Whether it be temporary of not, we are happy to welcome them, however our prime concern is how both our communities will interact, should more people make the move. We want everyone to feel welcome, and we want our community not to feel threatened.

/chat/ seems to have simply picked up in activity, and /mlp/eople look like they have elected /anon/ as their headquarters- which is fine by us. However that raises the question of /oat/.
/oat/ is our pony-related, random board. It serves some kind of a mess of a purpose, but it has its own community, that appreciates its content and enjoys its friendliness.

/oat/ has been recently getting an influx of new threads and members from /mlp/ - and this is good for the board. But some of this content might not fit the vision that the /oat/ community has of the board. Or maybe it does! This is why I made this thread, so we can discuss this before anything blows over.

To the /oat/ community I ask:
How do you feel about the 'general' threads (like the pregnant ponies general) moving to /oat/, or about the influx of new content ? Do you feel like you are out of place on your own board, or do you welcome this new content and new blood?

To the /mlp/eople planning on posting on /oat/, I ask:
Do you feel like /oat/ would be the right place for you, after being there a bit? How would you feel about moving to /chat/ or /anon/ for example, or, as some people have suggested, making a new board for you guys?

This thread is meant for the staff to know how people feel and to answer your concerns. Be honest - but stay friendly, any flaming will be disregarded, deleted, and eventually punished if you keep doing it.

Dont know bout the other anons, but I didn't come here to argue with the trippers. I just came here to enjoy what we cant back home right now.

I personally dont mind isolating every one of our threads in /anon/. It actually seems strange why fetish generals would even be made in a place like /oat/ imo.

Personally, I don't feel /oat/ is the place for recurring/general threads, regardless of topic.
Aside from that I see now reason why /mlp/ should not be welcome there, as long as they abide by the rules.
I'd also like to see a reduction in fetish/sexualised topics on /oat/ in general, as well as some efforts to add a little new life to the board, as it's getting a little stagnant.

I'm willing to help out with activity and play nice. But the same applies if the mlpchan regulars visit /anon/. Yall dont have to get us, but as long as no one rattles our cage, the lot of us would play ball.

Course I'm not speaking for everyone, just what I think. We're not a hivemind.

Im not good with words or debating, but i have mix feelings about General Threads. Never been in one really. But its nice to see them in oat. Just not about fetishes or gore or any nasty things people don't like to see everyday. I do hope some anons make names and tripcodes for themselves. I love to meet new people.

Another /mlp/er dropping in. Personally, I don't want to see a separate board for us because I believe it would encourage isolationism and sects. I want to interact with MLPchanners old and new as much as possible. For a similar reason, I'm having mixed feelings about /anon/. It's a nice stopgap, but I don't think it's a viable long term solution. Case in point: most threads on /anon/ could easily be reappropriated to another board - the only difference is the lack of trips. Since many, many writers and artists trip in order to identify themselves with their work, /anon/ simply wouldn't work for them.

To me, the issue appears to be that /mlp/ers aren't familiar with some of the more intricate features of the site. Normally, most would lurk for days or weeks before posting, but when our work cycles were ravaged in the storm, they were looking for a speedy way to get back to work.

The #Mature tag serves a special purpose here, but I would suggest that it be expanded. Some /mlp/ generals, like Flutterrape, have only explicit text. The forbidden clop threads, however, also contained images. A most of /mlp/ is accustomed to explicit text as a middle ground, and it might work here as well. Consequently, I recommend that the #Mature tag be split into #NSFWText, #NSFWImg/#NSFWPic (whichever works) and #NSFW (for threads with both). All would be blocked by default. Recurring threads seem to be on a variety of boards though, so I think each thread needs to be considered on a case-by-case basis. Also, I would toss in the #Fetish tag for regulation too, just to be safe.

We could use the traffic anyway. That said, some generals belong in /pony/ as they can be Srs Bsns

The only issue with generals would be if they keep bumping to first page. Perhaps it could be done like /chat/'s generals, but I don't know.
Would be nice to have a proper oat sticky…

Lets break this down piece for piece…
>How do you feel about the 'general' threads (like the pregnant ponies general) moving to /oat/, or about the influx of new content ?
I for one don't see how the "general threads" that are coming over have much of any issue with the usual /oat community. As for the newer content, it's always nice to get a thread from someone that isn't one of the regulars here. Shows the site has more then just the 10 users who use it on /oat…
>Do you feel like you are out of place on your own board, or do you welcome this new content and new blood?
Being a denizen of space, I've always had that "out of place" feeling, so that's nothing new. The new content and new blood is good for the board and will take some getting used to, I just would appreciate it if not every new thread is all about fetishes. We have enough as it is, anymore and /oat is better off being called /boner.

That's my input on the matter, but then again I'm not as "avid" an /oat goer as I used to be…

NSFW requires tags, so if folk don't wanna see it, you can hide the threads. It'd be a nominal differentiation.
Plus, the other thread (the one for just /mlp/) sounds like they want their own board… I don't know, I just like the idea of a broader community between us.
Although someone mentioned making an /all/ board… That's be nice…

EMF Scootaloo here, giving his two bits.

>How do you feel about the 'general' threads (like the pregnant ponies general) moving to /oat/, or about the influx of new content ?

I like to think of myself as a tolerant person - this is something I didn't have before I entered the fandom, so I have the fandom to thank for that. But that's not the point.

I'm completely okay with /mlp/ setting up in /oat/, on one condition.

If they begin to compromise /oat/'s identity as a board in its own right, or go out of their way to insult the indigenous peoples of the board (calling them tripfags, horsefuckers etc.), then they should be made a new board so that the denizens of /oat/ may live in peace once more.

I really don't like the idea of a board's identity being compromised by immigrants (call that a biproduct of me living in England if you wish), but so long as they allow us to live as ourselves as I know we will them, then we shouldn't have any problems. If they violate this rule, however, then so may they be exiled to a refurbished /anon/ or something.

This whole situation sounds like Britain in the 1960s. We have no activity. Britain solved this by bringing in migrants from their overseas territories, and it worked. So I think accepting /mlp/ is a good strategy that should work out in the short term, if nothing else.

As for the subjects of the threads, I'm personally okay with anything that isn't mature. If they want to post porn, they can put it on /anon/ or /chat/ or some other mature board. Our identity is fully PG-13, and as I said before, defending /oat/'s identity is my goal above all else. Stuff like pregnancy and overly large crotchtits and chubby ponies are alright with me - I mean, /oat/'s seen the likes of Honey Dew and Toybox and Full Mane and quite a few others, so it's not like we're strangers to fetishy stuff.

In other words, I think they should get the same rights as the indigenous people, but at the same time be treated as guests and subject to rules accordingly.

I mean, not like any of this matters because the mods are voting too and BOY DOES ANONTHONY LOVE HIS MODS, but hey.

>How do you feel about the 'general' threads (like the pregnant ponies general) moving to /oat/, or about the influx of new content ?
I think it would do /oat/ a lot of good to get variety, the generals would get a lot more people and expand the board, the issue I see with it would but integration, anons hatting tripfags, tripfags hatting anons, normal stuff, and getting used to the NSFW tags, but I think it'll work with time. Plus it'd been nice to see more than the usual 3 post recycled crap that gets put up all the time.
>Do you feel like you are out of place on your own board, or do you welcome this new content and new blood?
I've always felt out of place on /oat/ its like a highschool, cliquey and filled with stupid drama led by a small amount of people, but its a small amount of people in a not very large group to begin with, I've always said more posters would fix the problems cause by the smaller groups.

>Do you feel like /oat/ would be the right place for you, after being there a bit?

I think that /mlp/ should split generals between /chat/ /pony/ and /oat/ cause of their varying degrees of pony, the not very pony related /soc/ type threads go in /chat/, the more casual discussion and such goes in /oat/, and the analytical analysis goes in /pony. Personal I don't have a whole lotta experience with the generals but I think that will at least keep everyone off each others throats.
>How would you feel about moving to /chat/ or /anon/ for example, or, as some people have suggested, making a new board for you guys?
As I said, /chat/ would be good, god knows they need more posters, /anon/ wouldn't be the best idea cause it promotes sectionalism, if we wanted that we'd make our own board. Same goes for creating a new board, same problems and the rest of the site will hate anons more than they already do while /mlp/ with hate tripfags more than they already do.

That's why I'm saying to be careful. If general board consensus turns against someone, they usually get evil-eye'd off of the board.

Also to the mod community:
It's nice of you to ask for the people's opinion but general threads shouldn't make a difference. Remove posts you feel like to remove to uphold the integrity of this site and ban the losers who try to fuck it up. But for God fuck's sake don't do what ponychan does and allow some generals, and ban others just because it is more work to moderate or because they personally don't like it. Same goes for pics and posts. If you allow pics with the explicit content censored out then it shouldn't matter what kind of content was censored out.

I feel that /oat/ will sort itself out in the way imageboards are supposed to. Threads that people want will thrive because they're posted in, threads that arent wanted wont be and will die. Every person, from /mlp/ anons to established /oat/ tripfags gets the same say in that.

Recurring generals should go in /chat/ though, since thats where all serials go

I don't see how that works but I don't want to turn this thread into a grammar natzi thread of "who can define an internet expression better" war.
As far as it goes, it's just another bullshit reason to make it an exception and I still consider the bar as a general, valid or not. If you move the generals you should lump it together with the rest, and if not, you should leave the others as well. I am not your boss, I can't tell you what to do, you wanted my take on this and this is it.
Also I don't give too much fucks about what gets moved and what not. I just don't want this site to get to the ponychan point where I have no idea whether I get banned for posting SFW, for reasons like "roleplays are not allowed in this roleplay board thread" or "derailing a dead thread" or "only some posters are allowed to post kissing OCs in this thread and you are not one of them"…

I do not feel out of place we have all wanted new posters for a long time now, the board was dead for most of the time and we had people openly complaining about it and now we finally started getting new posters and some of us want to turn them away?

>But some of this content might not fit the vision that the /oat/ community has of the board.


If you want things to get better and just going about things how the normally were was clearly now helping you will have to accept some change, if you do not you are the problem and not anybody else.

>Generals.


Better then nothing, at least for a start. Nothing will be keeping them from leaving their serial thread unless you make them feel unwelcome.

/oat/ has been pretty sexual for a while now, if this is a complaint or a worry the only response I can give is don't be a hypocrite.





We should welcome the new posters and help them merge with our community.

>The #Mature tag serves a special purpose here, but I would suggest that it be expanded. Some /mlp/ generals, like Flutterrape, have only explicit text. The forbidden clop threads, however, also contained images. A most of /mlp/ is accustomed to explicit text as a middle ground, and it might work here as well. Consequently, I recommend that the #Mature tag be split into #NSFWText, #NSFWImg/#NSFWPic (whichever works) and #NSFW (for threads with both). All would be blocked by default.


Currently, you can activate seeing Mature threads, but set images in them to be spoilered by default. Would that work for people who want to see mature text but not mature images?

I expect very few posters fall into the "doesn't want to see dirty text but happy to see porn images" bucket.

For one thing, can I suggest an opening of a new /gala/ board? /mlp/ is a high-traffic board that regulars themselves have found less favorable to navigate in comparison to a subcommunity free culture where every thread is a new topic.

I'd like to formally apologize for the way I acted yesterday. It was a bit over the top an I'm aware of that.

It's well known I don't like anonymous posters, so the idea of /oat/, which I consider my home, bring overrun with them made me angry.

First, I was not initially aware they had been invited. I came into this thinking they were run out of their home so they decided to take mine. I was misinformed on that.

Not to say I'm completely okay with this arrangement, but for the time being I'm willing to be civil as long as the /mlp/er's can act in kind.

One thing I've already noticed is thr excessive use of terms like 'oldfag', 'drawfag', 'tripfag', etc. I'm well aware that on 4chan these terms are simply greetings with no insult actually meant, and I'm okay with that. However, when in Rome. We simply do not do that here, so if I might request something of our guests, it's simply to be mindful of the fact that while you are welcome here, this is NOT /mlp/, and I simply don't want to see these new people trying to turn this place into /mlp/ 2.0.

We have our own established rules, guidelines and customs, and just like going anywhere else, it woulx be nice if you learned them and tried to be respectful of them.

I'm still very wary of this whole situation, but we'll see how it goes.

Also, despite my behavior yesterday I am not against adult content. In fact, I was the main proponents in getting the mature tags added to the board.

I'm the god princess of smut as far as /oat/ is concerned, but there is an element of respect that must be held for others who are not like minded. The main reason I blew up at the fetish thread yesterday was simply that I felt it was a very inconsiderate thing to do to a board that is, by most standards, supposed to be a SFW board. I use the term lightly due to some posters… but even so, it just came across as very rude to post on the very first day.

That is why I got upset at it.

Apology accepted, no hard feelings. I've seen much more vehement anon-hating on Ponychan so I personally am used to it. but…

That would be awesome though if someone wrote an /all/ script for this site. There is a major effect on how it influences the traffic's behavior if it is done right. You know why all the most crucial news on the show/fandom tends to hit /mlp/ first? Because the attention it attracts is always immediate, with very little to no delay. Twilicorn hit /mlp/ first. Fighting is Magic got leaked there first. The infamous "Equestria Girls" article from that convention got leaked there first. You get the picture. Now that's not to belittle MLPchan's response to news or anything, but rather, visually shows the effect of having all topics shown at one time. When one thread gets bumped here, it gets bumped to the top of the page, of one board. When a thread gets bumped on /mlp/, it gets bumped over everything.

In this case /all/ would have to consist of /pony/, /oat/, and /chat/ due to the fact tbat ae have art and rp boards, and having those bump a main /all/ board would be pointless and confusing.

I am for the creation of an /all/ board, which everyone would be able to select which boards they wanted it to display, displaying threads as-they-are-posted and with a full slate of pages for browsing. I would also consider naming it /mlp/, which would befit it's purpose - being all the boards on this mlp *chan - and also differentiate it from other sites' /all/ boards - and also be a sort of token of welcome to /mlp/.

This would go along with the creation of a catalog system, as well, which our SysAdmin is actively at work on. I think these two should be our primary priorities at the moment.

/mlp/ refugee reporting in

Most of the stuff that's usually posted in /mlp/ will fit on /oat/. CYOAs will probably go to /rp/. Generals appear to be the main problem, since they function as a variety of things, and don't fit on any one board

>>7338
/gala/ being a board specifically for generals?
>>7340
I can't speak for all of /mlp/, but I don't have any problem with generals. They're at most a little annoying to scroll past.
>>7341
I'd usually lurk a lot longer than I have to pick up culture, but /mlp/ went to hell real quick. Not sure I want to get a trip myself, but I'm not going to start drama here over something that predates /mlp/'s arrival.
>>7350
Art tends to be bumped a lot less regularly than random chatter. If an art thread is getting enough responses to be sitting on the front page of /all/ it's probably important enough to be there.
I think a modular system like >>7351 suggested would be best if an /all/ board is to be made.

Random question to anyone - does sage work here?

Anonymous 7361

>>7358
>/gala/ being a board specifically for generals?
Yes, /gala/ on Ponychan serves as a repository for any general or recurring thread. I also believe that if there was a /gala/, they should allow mature threads.

And yes, sage works here.

Anonthony!AppLeJAcK. 7362

>>7358
Yes, sage works as normal here.

And I'm gonna advocate the /all/-type modular system to our SysAdmin for priority implementation. I think that's really the best possible option. People can either use it to select all/most boards and use it to keep up with pretty much everything happening everywhere, or use it to select a small handful of boards they want to view while possibly sitting in their regular/home thread in another tab. If anyone doesn't want/need to see the roleplay threads from /rp/ or the fanfic review threads on /fic/, they can simply select not to include them in their /all/ viewing.

Definitely, given there are lots of NSFW generals. No point in telling them to go somewhere if they can't actually post their content there.
>>7363
I like sage for correcting mistakes or asking/replying to stuff that isn't related to the thread enough to bump it.

Just FYI, Anonthony here is the Big Boss of this joint.

Also, we need a /oat/ or /pony/ type board for nsfw stuff apparently. Because some of the mlpers want to tripfag but also nsfw-post.
Or at least, that is my understanding.
As I understand it, /anon/, /pic/ and /art/ are all mature enabled. There are a few others I am sure, but I don't know which…

The notion behind the current system (as I understand it) is to have as many threads as possible be safe for work, so that the maximum number of people can enjoy them, and to concentrate NSFW stuff into dedicated threads. So, you wouldn't have to delve into a NSFW Rainbow Dash thread to get your clean Rainbow Dash pictures.

A thread that's mostly socializing or mostly a SFW topic but has a few nuggets of porn is inconvenient, because it's inhospitable to prudish people even though most of the content in it should appeal to them.

I have no idea of who told you about this, but the "Ponychan merger" was never more than that: A proposal.
It was discussed briefly a few weeks ago and rejected due to major disagreements between the staffs.

Damn. Last I heard, it was a 60-40 split of MLPchan mods and Ponychan mods, with !!Lyra and !!Littlepip at the helm. Ponychan was lobying for a 60-40 split in the other direction. I had hoped that they would compromise on a 50-50 deal, but apparently the talks broke down and Anonthony went crazy, ruining the best chance for both boards to be improved?

Oh well, it was a fool's dream.

I want to avoid drama or debates about this, because this thread's topic matters to me and this will derail the thread.
But apparently it's already done thanks yang >.> so I might as well address the misinformation before it spreads.

Anonthony didn't get upset at all, at anyone, I was there, and everyone was getting along just fine -mlpchan and ponychan staff- in the group chat about it before we started adding certain ponychan staff members,
We then decided the idea would lead nowhere, there's no juicy details, it was just an idea we discussed for a day or two and it didn't work. Don't listen to rumors.

Now back on topic, and if anyone talks about this in this thread it will be deleted, and let it not be said I wasn't patient. The /mlp/ community's well being matters to me more than whatever debates or drama anyonw wants to spawn from an idea that we debated in private and gave nothing. I believe that's fair.

I have gotten a pretty clear vision of what I think is the best for both communities, however I'm giving it a little time for everyone to chip in.
It's especially important for the /mlp/ community as they do not have a representative mod or even a single voice for the community, so every voice counts.

While I've already said my piece here, most of the /mlp/ users over at /anon/ don't seem to know this thead even exists Or maybe they don't care - who knows. The sticky should direct them here if you want lots of input - currently it just mentions the /site/ board as a whole.

The talk of merger talks, while fascinating, belongs elsewhere. Please take it to a new thread, or a thread that doesn't already have a purpose to hijack.



The topic at hand is figuring out board/community arrangement in light of /mlp/ influx. I dislike like the idea of a 'do anything' board as a replacement for /mlp/, as that defeats the entire function of topic categorization.
