I probably should have made this earlier, but this is the thread for requesting bug fixes and things that you would like to see implemented. As they are requested, I will add them to the list in the OP, and a rough percentage showing how complete that bugfix or feature is completed.

For starters, I fixed the Youtube embed thumbnails being stretched strangely, and it only took one letter to fix it!

Bug fixes
Youtube thumbnail stretching - 100%
Youtube thumbnail title - 100%>
Fix links in spoilers still showing when not hovering - 100% - you may have to do a hard-refresh (Shift-F5 or Shift-Refresh button click) for it to apply
Fix Return/Entire thread/Last 50 posts links overlapping with the quick reply and toggle post form links - 0%

Add a seperate interface for mobile browsers - 0%

Posts are stored as HTML, so it's actually an HTML to BBcode "disassembler" that I wrote. I guess that's a case where it doesn't quite work properly.

I wouldn't expect it to be fixed, though - I can't fix it, and I think Tinyboard stores the original BBcode.

Normally I'd agree but time and time again, Manley discussions only turn into disasters, just like how sexual discussions on /oat/ always edinto disasters.

By all means, stay friends with him.

The majority of people just don't want him back and actively have a nicer place to hang out because he's gone.

If you think he's cool and a good friend, good on you.

We just don't want him here.

Two days ago, a thread was made on /oat/ asking me to post as Gilda for a week. to play along, i posted as her for an evening, but resumed regular posting the next day; i didn't feel comfortable with it, and felt pressured into it.

In response, Fenolio said, more or less, that he felt disappointed, and that he would change the theme in /oat/ to Gilda the next day. i figured this was a joke, but it appears not to be.

i do not know whether this is a joke or not, but if it is, i politely ask that it not be at my expense. if it's okay, maybe we could not do the theme anymore? Thank you for your understanding.

In the aftermath of the debate, I'll add one thing and I hope admins/mods should look after this.

I think it was pretty fun to discover Gilda day and the theme and I don't think such "events" should never happen.

But if you work on the idea of changing the theme back after a little while, please make sure that not everyone is away at the moment it should have been changed back. Only make changes for jokes and plan to undo them if ypou're sure this can happen in a timely fashion.
If not really possible, try to get someone else to do this for you. Because the current way seems sloppy and actually makes a point why these events are not really a good idea.

January sure was an interesting month! Lots of wild stuff happened.

It is mid-March, though. Not that I don't love the beautiful Shining fanart, but do those announcements still need to be stickied? I think that at this point, anyone who hasn't voiced an opinion about the merger and complains that they weren't notified can be smacked soundly in the face.

Hello, when I saw the proposal for the ponychan/mlpchan merger, one of the proposed boards was /chat/, or what is the current /gala/, rather. However, it seems that that serials are rather controversial. I believe that because serials exist, the /oat/ community is rather "shitposty", for lack of a better term. However, it seems that the people in the serials like the environment there; even though they claim they're just there because of the topic, serials are similar to the /oat/ community.

Does the existence of /gala/ (or what will become /chat/) cause a fracture in the /oat/ community? I'd love to hear from people who are part of serials and people who don't like serials as well.

Except no? If anything, I want serials to stay, it was a private discussion I had, which is why I brought it up here.

Yang isn't that gung ho about this. Him being an admin has nothing to do with this.

>I find it very sad that ponychan will allow clop before /mlp/ does.
>hidden away on a board where it has to be tagged and will be autohidden until you say you want to see it
It will still be way easier to find clop on /mlp/ than it will be to find it here.
I'd also like to point out it isn't clop specific. If no one else does I will totally make a normal people thread with no bestiality allowed.

A couple weeks ago, I posted the following message for the staff:
>I've been planning to do this for a week or two now. I wish I'd had a chance to talk with Orange before posting this, but he's on vacation and I feel it's necessary that I get it over with now.
>In my time as admin / owner / whatever of Ponychan, I've fixed some bugs, resolved some disputes, picked some fights, and made some mistakes. My contribution hasn't been very big, apart from paying for the site. I freely admit it hasn't been the most stellar tenure.
>2014 was probably the hardest year of my life. I love the people on Ponychan, and my memories of the early days of the site, but I haven't made it a secret that over the past year it represented just one more source of anxiety when I was just struggling to hold on. Now that 2015 is here, I've decided to participate in a therapy program over the next couple months to help get my life back on track; this will consume almost all of my free time, and it is necessary to get my obligations to Ponychan out of the way first.
>Astra told me there are talks about a Ponychan merger. I know I placed myself in the position of decision-maker, but I have no basis on which to form an opinion about this. I don't currently use the site and I hardly interact with anybody who does. This decision should be left to people who know what they're talking about.
>Orange, Admiral, and Fen are in charge. Orange has all of the site passwords. I hope the three of you can figure out how to share power.
>Some of you donated money to the site's PayPal account to help with this year's site expenses. I never withdrew the money; I'll leave it there so it can go towards next year's expenses.
>It really has been a pleasure working with all of you - and I'm not just saying that. I love this staff. I'm sorry if this comes as a disappointment.

In every forum that has upvotes and downvotes, it is very successful. Why? Because it allows us users to gauge how contributive each person is to any sort of discussion. With good use of the upvote/downvote system, we can be able to correctly moderate ourselves while we represent what we want to be as a community together. It would help bring together opinions from everyone and include everyone in discussions.

Though I have seen some sites with only upvotes, which changes the dynamic a lot, possibly for the better. If you can't attack something down, then it becomes less important to support just what you agree with on the chance it gets voted down. I wouldn't ask for that though.

Something like post counts or receiving a number of upvotes yourself?
That sort of thing only promotes an inclusive community, where you are more likely to be disregarded due to your lack of posts.
And if the post count / vote counts are exceedingly high like say, 500 to a thousand or something, then it only promotes virtual dick sucking of those people that have special privileges over everyone else.

It happens everywhere that includes people of a higher position mixing with those of a lower.

Just to be clear, i'm only talking in terms of the site here.

I keep getting this error whenever I post. I also can't seem to get "image zoom on hover" to work. I assume something I did with the settings got messed up? If there's any way to fix either issue, I'd like to hear it.

I'm using Google Chrome and Ponychan X is on. The image zoom on hover functionality doesn't work regardless of whether Ponychan X is on or not.

Deleting cookies and other site data should work though if you don't set the start date early enough it might not delete it. You can manually delete the offending item by inspect element>resources>local storage>Pchan and right click on the item and delete it. You probably won't be able to delete any threads made before doing this, so make sure you hide any evidence first.

Manually deleting every cookie fixed the issue somehow, despite having deleted them before.

Well, problem solved.
