!!Big Macintosh ## Mod 9762

Hey there.
I'll be modding alongside these fine folks who've been keeping this place all right and nice for the past year.
You'll probably see me here on /site/ or modding on /anon/ as an anon mod for the most part.
You probably know me as Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash or Arctic!TEMPeStR9o.

I've been posting as anon since /mlp/ moved in. And I never posted a ton to begin with outside of /site/ and /chat/.

I might as well be

All the moderation we do on /anon/ is done Anonymous, as above. He just means that because he spends a lot of time on /anon/ he's likely to be one of the ones attending to it.

Though it rarely needs attending, actually - a combination of the lax guidelines and most /anon/s working things out for themselves.

I don't intend to put my name on on /anon/ under any circumstances, unless the situation truly calls for it; which should be never, given how /anon/ is formatted.

What kind of moderation is even done on /anon/? I mean, I don't know if it's still there now, but last night there was a real bestiality thread with over 100 posts. Is that allowed?

The feeling I get is that /anon/ is kind of like the /b/ of MLPchan, except it's actually good unlike 4chan's /b/, and it's still at least vaguely MLP-themed.

It's essentially /mlp/ with even less mods and NSFW is allowed–which don't get me wrong is fantastic, and I hope it stays that way for the most part.

I also think it's really cool that the mods here take so much time to interact and have fun with the community, even the "refugees" from /mlp/. On 4chan the mods hardly do anything except silently ban people.

Anonymous ## Mod 9839

>>9828
it's basically just looking for severe rule breaking.
/anon/ is intended to be /mlp/ during the time before scruffy went nuts.
Technically, there's more mods, we just actually know how to run a community, and we don't have a hateboner for ponies, and we listen to the community rather than try to control them.
I'm glad you appreciate our interaction with you fine horsefuckers, it's really enjoyable for us too. It's a really nice feeling knowing that you guys know you can trust us, actually.
4chan sets a very shitty example of what moderation is like throughout the web, but it has a very small set of advantages that can't be achieved without having a moderation system like they do, and in the end, it does work for them, most of the time.

Well thank you, we really do appreciate it. It's funny, /mlp/ has definitely settled down but I actually like here better mainly because of how the mods are and of course because here we get our porn. It's just crazy, because of 4chan's global rule 15 there is literally no place on the site where you can post clop. You can post loli, yiff, bestiality, scat, gore etc. all on at least /b/, but you post anything explicit with an MLP character and you get banned. We've complained about it endlessly, and they refuse to do anything. The thing about 4chan's mods and moot is that they are extremely selective about what they choose to respond to, and in really dumb ways. Like moot won't say a word about the state of /mlp/ when everyone is freaking out about it starting ten threads at once on /q/ (/q/ is 4chan's meta board), but then he goes and posts in an off-topic doubles thread. It's like really?? And I'm such a fucking sucker, I actually bought a 4chan Pass with my own money that I earned and I STILL can't post pony porn anywhere. I mean it's not like I was expecting to be exempt from the rules but you would think moot would show a little more care towards what he himself described as one of the largest sub-cultures to ever come out of 4chan.

One of the great things about this site is that it has a decent amount of traffic but it hasn't caught the attention of tons of underage posters or spammers. I mean there's not even captcha here which is absolutely amazing. It's funny because moot said he was NEVER going to implement captcha, and then a couple years later he's CHARGING people to get RID of it. Anyways I just think it's difficult for forums/imageboards to have a good balance of noticeably active moderation that helps things instead of pissing people off. Like I said, the 4chan mods just silently ban people, and then on sites like 7chan or 420chan you get publicly banned just for making mistakes…basically Nazi moderation. You guys seem to do it really well here, I think it's important that the users like the mods instead of just being afraid of them.

Oh and while you're here, I have a question about one of the rules–it says that we're not allowed to post foalcon anywhere on this site, but I'm unclear about whether this literally means we just can't post baby-fucking, or whether we can't post filly porn either (like the CMC). I don't care about the whole babyfucking thing, but a lot of us from /mlp/ REALLY like filly porn, and since Fluffy Pony (which is basically torturing mentally challenged toddlers) is allowed here, then it would make since for filly porn to be allowed as well. I know there is that whole stigma related to pedophilia, but it's perfectly legal, it's only a cartoon and in America that is protected by free speech (which is why it's okay to post loli on /b/ for example). I won't post it if you guys truly won't allow it, but I think you should seriously consider allowing filly porn images/stories (on the proper boards).

(Different mod)

I'm also glad you've found things to your liking, and the balance we've tried to strike between being around and involved without distracting from the community, and between structure and freedom.

As for the clop issues, it's a question of gray area legal issues; Canada in particular has a notable Supreme Court case defining any depictions (real or fictional) portraying characters reasonably presumed under-age in any sexual situations may be subject to punishment. Now, it's especially hard to define things when the characters being portrayed… aren't human, and have no given or presumed ages (let alone.. whether, uh, whatever age a cartoon horse is considered 'of age.' I mean, it just feels weird in and of itself to discuss the issue. Is Rarity 23 in analogous human years? Do they age similarly to humans? Who the hell knows, really.)

While we definitely prohibit foalcon and any really child-like depictions of characters in sexual situations, I think it should be noted that foal =/= filly, and it's especially hard to make distinctions of characters when the main characters refer to each other as fillies at times. I would say that abiding by the tag-and-spoiler system and not posting the extreme kind of material that will catch unwanted attention, and using good judgement, and if a staff member comes across something that looks out of line and deletes it, understanding that it's not an easy judgement call. Bans are few and far between, as well, and you'll almost always find a warning or note if you're too close to the line, and we rarely have people push that and they tend to respect it. The fluffy pony example is an apt one; what the hell is a fluffy pony in relation to human age, anyways - and their depictions are often violent or bizarre in nature but it's impossible to classify them, let alone pass judgement on them. I know this isn't a concrete answer and I do wish I could give you something clearer but the world is a weird place and we'll try to be as flexible as we can.
