Anonymous 9999Sticky

The /Site/ Sticky:
Welcome! This sticky will cover the majority of frequently asked questions as well as provide important information for using the site. Click each box for info.

● Formatting & Hotkeys
While browsing:
  • Q brings up the Quick Reply - if you have it enabled in the Settings.
  • Ctrl+b will make highlighted text bold
  • Ctrl+i will put it in italics
  • Ctrl+s will spoiler your text
  • Ctrl+h will hide your text, creating a [Show] button for people to reveal
  • Ctrl+u will underline it
  • Ctrl + r is for strikethrough
  • [cs][/cs] will create Comic Sans text
  • [tt][/tt] will create Typeface font
  • Red bold headings are obtained by placing two equal signs (==) on each side of ==your text== (On one line only)
  • [url] function - you can make hyperlinks in the following manner: [url=http://google.com]Click here[/url]
  • On /fic/, /pony/, /art/ and /rp/, you can edit your posts or threads. Click the checkbox of the post you want to edit and click the [Edit] button in the bottom right corner of the page to edit it.
  • You can use an automated "dice" by entering [XdY], X being the number of dice and Y the number of sides each dice has. For example [2d6] will throw two 6-faced dice.
  • You can also make additions or subtractions, useful for roleplaying fucntions. For example [1d20-5]
  • Thread watching: There is a 'Watch' link at the bottom right of every OP. When it's clicked, a 'Watcher' menu will appear near the Settings tab. You will be alerted of new messages in watched threads.
  • Cross--thread linking is done as such: >>>/test/47
  • Catalog: each board has a "Catalog" which will show you all the threads currently on every page of each board. For example: catalog for /anon/. The catalog will show you a preview of each thread's OP text, the OP image as well as the number of replies in each thread.
● Settings
MLPchan has a Settings button on the right of its navbar. Here are some of the features it provides:
  • The "style" field allows you to use different themes.
  • Show mature content threads: Will reveal the automatically hidden mature threads on certain boards. Off by default.
  • Treat mature images as spoilers: Spoilers images in mature threads, when threads are unhidden.
  • Reveal Spoilers will bypass the Spoilers system (Images and text)
  • Navbar stays at the top: "Sticks" the navbar to the top of the page. It is off by default: the navbar scrolls down with you.
  • Use QR for posting: Highly recommended, the Quick Reply allows you to post in a thread without scrolling to the top every time. Q brings it up.
  • Show "You" on links to your posts: Will put the text (You) after a reply directed to a post you have made.
  • Reply notifier sound: A sound alert is played when someone replies to you in a thread- if you have the thread opened.
● Hash-tags
MLPchan allows you to create hash-tags, which are a tagging feature.
You create a #Tag of your choice like so: [#Text of your choice]This is important for some boards like /rp/ and /fic/, it is also how you mark a thread as [#Mature]. On mature boards, a button is available when making the OP to add this tag automatically.

Note: Any NSFW image posted in a non-Mature thread is a rule violation and will be treated as such. Please tag your threads properly for the benefit of all users

>They're finally adding a filter.
You're welcome everyone! I worked hard to make that necessary.

The Vulture!3bqGraff0U 10298

What kind of filter? A filter for certain thread or posters?
Or is it like a word filter?

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 10305

filtering for names, trips, subjects. and emails

BatBane 10569

If you can make it so that only the staff can control the filter that would be great, so only when it is clear to posters cannot live with each other then it will be used, not when butthurt poster#1 gets angry at a joke then starts filtering people then start complaining the the board is dead because they can't see the posts.

I just don't feel that the kind of people here that would use that filter would do so responsibly.

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 10619

People can remove their filters, and it's not exactly our problem if they filter so many people that the board ends up being dead. That just suggests that they really need to find new people to talk too.

The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 10934

I think it suggests they are way too sensitive and need to engage in some self reflection.

newfag 10944

What's the deal with
>Proper /all/-type board?
Are you going to merge existing boards into one fast board?

Silver Strength!TwiDasH7n2 10982

An /all/ board isn't it's own board. It's a filter that lets you see threads from whichever boards you choose.

Where's the clock settings go?
You know, the ones that dictate what time zone you view post times at.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 11209

Post times here are automatically displayed in your computer's timezone.


no they are not you liar


Nogitrov 12132

How exactly do you embed videos into your posts? Can only the mods do it?

Well that sucks… maybe we should propose a new change to the site so that normal users can embed vids in their posts

Hey Mikie I actually have a question for you, I'm not trying to be rude or anything but I seriously want to know, do you masturbate to EqG Pinkie Pie, and if so do you do it to porn of her or the actual movie, and also how often? I ask because you make it pretty clear that you're in love with her when posting and I remember when I felt like I was in love with pre-alicorn Twilight and I masturbated to the same damn fantasy of living with her and then she comes home on Hallooween in a nurse outfit…yeah…

so yeah…

Welcome to the internet.

Oh, okay.

Sorry, I'm just used to everyone being really open about that stuff on /anon/.

it's fine… and now im going to delete that post because i just realized it's TMI ._.

What did you post, Mikie? The fact that you fap to your tulpa? Or is it much worse, based off of those reactions? Also, the only TMI you could post here is your dox, and you're not stupid enough to do that.


File: 1383882409532.png (612.76 KB, 661x715, sweetie409.png)

I've got his dox. I sent him a Pinkie.

Nogitrov 12243

well now I really want to know what it is

Also, that's not really that bad. There are much worse things you could be fapping to.

Lavender!!llnUq8y2Ml 12793

I got a Windows phone recently and noticed I can't upload photos to MLPChan from it. Is there anyway you could fix this problem?

I would've kept my iPhone if it didn't keep automatically going to speaker phone when calling someone.

Macil!/5s/Techmk 12814

Is that using the Quick Reply or the regular posting form? Can you get as far as picking the file and attempting to post with it? Does the site give you any errors?

>Reveal Spoilers will bypass the Spoilers system (Images and text)
New user here. Where exactly is the reveal spoilers setting? I found the option to un-spoil text (works fine) but where is the one to un-spoil the images?

Anonymous 13667

You can unspoil Mature-tagged images with
> Treat mature content images as spoilered images
Being unchecked, and un-spoil spoilered images when you hover on them with
>Expand spoiler image on hover
Being checked. There isn't an unspoil all spoilered images setting.

Anonymous 14809

>There isn't an unspoil all spoilered images setting.
Really expecting for this feature to be implemented.

I can see this sorta becoming a thing.


Happened all the time in the Mumble.
