Ponychan-MLPchan Merger >>>/site/15219

File: 1371745965998.jpg (68.61 KB, 768x1024)

Finalized New Board Structure: !!Applejack ## Admin ## 9099

>/site/ - Site Issues
>/arch/ - Archives

>/pony/ - The Show

>/oat/ - Off-Topic
>/anon/ - Anything Goes

>/fic/ - Fanfiction

>/rp/ - Roleplay
>/art/ - Art & Fanwork

We have completed our board restructuring and the new board listing is as shown above. We believe this streamlines things very well and provides the best possible clear structure with as little division and overlap as possible.

We made two slight modifications for the time being from the initial discussion; for now /anon/ will stay as /anon/ while we settle everything in from these other big changes, and /art/ will stay as /art/ with the addition of being expanded for other fanwork. We'll monitor it to see how people like to use it best.

But for now, that should be everything. We've increased /anon/'s bump limit to 400 so active threads stay up towards the top longer. We've also trimmed some unnecessary hidden boards. We've accomplished quite a lot with this restructuring in a relatively short time, and I want to thank everyone for their calm, constructive comments during the discussion phase of all of this. I am very optimistic not only for these changes but for anything we discuss in the future, based on how everyone thoughtfully considered what might be best for the site and their boards.

We'll continue to try to conduct administrative action in that manner - raising the ideas, talking to you in the threads very actively, talking to many of you one-on-one through Skype and other means if you want, and when the time comes to make a choice, firmly and clearly making decisions and going with them without endless delays.

If you have any questions, concerns, ideas, suggestions or the like please let us know.

>tfw you notice the restructuring thread minutes before everything is finalized.
Oh well


Not sure /oat/ will like the changes…
I also suspect you will be hearing from a lot of people who feel they didn't get much say in this

There was an "ideas" thread that went on for hundreds of posts, and was linked in the blotter. Then it was made an "official discussion" thread that also went on for hundreds of posts, and was linked in the blotter.

I'm sorry, but I honestly cannot see how people can have complaints when they can't even be bothered to notice in the first place.If they don't care enough to notice headlines telling them there's discussions happening, then official discussions, then how do they care enough about the changes that happen?

For gods sake, /I/ noticed it even. And I don't leave my hidey hole but once in a blue moon.


Speaking of, times up! Off I trot.

I took the time to speak one on one with a lot of /oat/ members both on site and on Skype. I think we've reached a fairly good agreement.

The restructuring is now complete and everything should be set.

Again, thank you for all your input and dialogue about this everyone.

If anyone encounters anything we missed, or has a further idea or suggestion, don't hesitate to let us know.

We'll get back to work on the catalog and other things.

!!Fluttershy ## Mod 9126

I'd like to point out, on the matter of /pic/, because I was asked about it.
It might or might not be deleted, as it is it is hidden.

Whatever happens, whether we keep it as a hidden board, or delete it, images/caps dumps are authorized on /pony/, /oat/ and /anon/, so there you go.

He put a period after /oat/ and said /anon/ if they're adult pics.

That might be fine now during the off season but if and when we get some serious discussions going on S4 + the daily /P/AD threads things might become a bit cluttered.

Actually I think that'd be fine. we could have a new episode discussion thread and a new episode capping thread.

I'd just like to say
Thank you Anonthony for always linking Space to important events like this, and asking our opinions. I know we're off in the middle of nowhere, so thanks for keeping us part of the site's community.
And thanks for keeping us where we are, even if we're linked from Oat, because Space wouldn't be Space on the ground!
>ps, when the site first launched I asked about the name field remembering entries like Ponychan did, and I see it still doesn't since I had to go find my trip to use it. Its been a year so is that just something not possible with Tinyboard?

Are you sure you aren't browsing in private browsing mode, or otherwise have your browser site data set to expire early? I haven't had any issues reported with the name-saving functionality in a while.

Nope its the same on both my computers, when I type the first few letters it doesn't have a drop down with previous names like it did on Ponychan. It never has I've just had to keep all of them in a .txt and copy paste it whenever I want to swap trips.
Its never worked here since the site started, I just haven't felt like bothering anyone about it.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 9443

>>9423
Ponychan does that? I think that might be your browser doing that. Dunno why it's not acting identically for our posting field. Chrome and Firefox don't seem to do that for me on either place. I do mean to address that functionality here sometime.

It used to do it on Ponychan a year ago but I just checked and it doesn't anymore, but there was a time when I was transitioning from Ponychan to here and it was annoying that Ponychan was doing it and here wasn't. But now I'm used to just keeping a .txt for my trips, its a hassle but not impossible to deal with.

the normal post box doesn't save my trips, but the QR has all my trips saved.
I never really cared because I always use the QR.

You know, I didn't mind /chat/ being locked without it being announced, at least to my knowledge. I didn't mind that no users seems to have voted on it. I don't mind it being merged with /oat/ even; regardless of the amount of uninteresting threads and OCs. Different strokes, you know? But what I do think is that I enjoyed posting on MLPchan a lot more when I did not have to mingle with people who unironically want to have sex with animals. I miss /chat/.

What.

The merge was discussed in lengths on /site/ and linked in the blotter for weeks.
You did not involve yourself in the discussions, but that's not our fault, we're not going to send a steam message to every single member on this site everytime we discuss site changes.

You are sharing /oat/ with the /oat/ community, the /oat/ community doesn't want to have sex with animals.
A few guys on /anon/ probably do, but even there they're a minority - but you're not sharing /oat/ with them, regardless of what happens there.

Many of them seem to do. And the reason I wrote "As far as I know" is because I really don't give two rats asses about most things. That's fair, don't mind it. I'm just giving a little whine.

to be fair, i see where he's coming from. i avoided browsing oat for awhile after the merge because there seemed to be a big influx of borderline pony smut shit all over the place

it seems to have calmed down mostly though
