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%

I have only seen it just recently with one or two threads, so I would call it recent. And not really universal, either.

External version: 2.39
Native version: 2.13

After over three months worth of coding power and countless hours of rewriting code almost entirely from the ground up, it is an honor for me to present you guys with Ponychan X version 2. Its over 6000 lines long, yet faster than ever, free from any unnecessary frameworks. This will also serve as the support thread for the nightly builds that require installation, as they work their way into neutral builds to be updated to the site itself.

1) Like before, install a GM-based extension, if don't already have one, for your browser.
Chrome []Firefox []SeaMonkey []Opera []Safari []

2) Install Ponychan X []

So I've been caught up in boatloads and boatloads of /gala/ drama and it usually boils down to someone not liking someone else on their turf. And as of right now there isn't really a solution to that, there aren't entry requirements for /gala/ threads or anything, people can just post wherever. And usually that's fine! Usually there's no issue with that. Other times, though, things go down.

Now aside from people trying to argue it out, I propose that our "subcommunities" get recognized as small communities. As in, they get their own rules. They don't get to ignore the site's rules as a whole, those are all in place, but a serial thread should get to post its own rules, like a charter, in the first post of every thread. "People who enter follow these additional rules."

This is basically just an extension of the rules on derails. The poster of a thread gives the thread a "topic" and anyone not "on topic" gets shown the door. If the thread doesn't want to talk about MOBAs? (Which is weird as hell.) Put it in the OP. Thread doesn't want any lewdness? (Which is a lot less weird.) Put it in the OP. People really only want to talk about programming, specifically, without any "How was your day?" but also without the thread falling off? Put it in the OP.

I think this would solve at least a lot of the problems I've had to deal with.

>Why is the Story thread now experiencing some serious conflicts of interest that remain unresolved on the subject of lewdness?
Because a lot of the older members of the Story thread (myself not included in most cases, even though I am one of the older members) are not here for lewdness and have mentioned before that they would prefer to not have it in the thread. Newer members (from the ruins of /p/AD don't know that, and they're used to being lewd, so they, being amongst other friends from /p/AD, naturally keep the same posting style. No one is really deliberately at fault; however the newer members of Story should probably try to tone down the lewd. After all, Story is a thread that has existed for far longer than literally any other serial on this site.

Congratulations, you just discovered the solution to 99% of the worlds problems.

Hello, wonderful users of Ponychan! Nimble Wing here. In case you haven't already heard from some unofficial source, which I hope you haven't, I'm going to be serving as the site's !!Pinkie Pie from this point on. Specifically, I'll be tasked with taking !!Spitfire's place as the mod of /rp/ and /ooc/. (!!Spitfire is now !!Twilight, and is handling general site moderation. I seem to have confused some people; Astra's not stepping down.) Those two boards have become a large part of the reason I stay here, so I'm grateful that I have the chance to help keep them happy and running! This does, of course, mean that Artee will be stepping down as a moderator. I believe that he’s done an absolutely wonderful job of being a mod, and I’m honored that he believes I would be a good replacement. I’ve got some big shoes to fill. It’s not my place to try and explain reasons, though, so I won’t be delving into that.

Now, some of you guys might recognize me, but I'm certain that many of you do not. I came to Ponychan shortly after I was introduced to FiM way back when in mid-late 2011. After hopping between boards a bit, I ended up making my home on /oat/. And that's where I stayed for a while. I posted quite a lot back then, so any of you back in that era might know me. After the big drama-fest following the old /oat/ crackdowns, though, I ended up moving on over to /rp/. It's been my main board ever since! I’ve also been the one updating and maintaining the site’s FAQ and Contact Us pages for a good while now, so maybe you recognize me from that. Or something. I dunno. I DO THINGS, OKAY?

For those who don't know me, I usually just go by Nimble Wing (Element of Flight) !SonicFbkn. when I post. Depending on moods and RPs, I'll sometimes use the names Jewel (Officer of the Orion) !wahaHAqNBY or Orion "Star Hunter" !Space0GGSs. My main name will always be Nimble Wing, though, and I always keep my email on my posts. I’m most likely going to become more active now that I’ve got a bigger role on the site, so maybe that’ll help with… stuff. I believe that people would be more comfortable with me as

From now on, Orange will be serving the site in his preferred role as a dev.

This past year has been insane for me in real life. I apologize for never being around. In the coming days, I will be working on a plan to reorganize the site's administration so that my frequent and prolonged absences will not stand in the way of the site moving forward. (Hopefully at some point my absences will be less frequent and prolonged, too.) I will post more details once I have everything worked out.

I'd like to a request that is extremely important and totally legitimate as an idea.

So a few posters, myself included have brought up the topic of the abundance of illegal drug-related threads on the site. A few people have asked that such threads be moderated, just as thread of a sexual nature are.

However, in my last thread I created about the topic I was told by Fenolio, and I quote: "We disallow sex things because of the web host, and we disallow sex threads because people abused the "grey area" of the rules. Talking about drugs is okay with our web host as far as i know. ...I would just direct you to the 'hide' feature in that case." (link to that comment here: >>160417)

Well I took it upon myself to email this websites webhost directly. I was told by them that drug related thread are most certainly not allowed. Their exact words were "Our Terms of service does not permit illegal activity." Not only that, this website has it's own rules against "planning or conducting any activities which violate United States law." I think discussing drug use would fall under "conducting".

I will again state my premise of this thread. I think that threads about using illegal drugs should be regulated just as threads about sexual topics are. If a serious discussion is wanted about drugs, it should be moved to /dis/. What topics would fall under this rule can also be discussed here.

Neither is talking about sex, but you guys cracked down on that anyway.

But if that's your stance, at what point does discussion become "planning" when you are openly and graphically discussing doing drugs and suggesting them to others? This is important to know.

>2.Transmission, distribution or storage of any adult material. This includes, without limitation, all pornography or otherwise lewd or obscene content.

We've had issues with the host about sexual content. We haven't had issues with them about drug content, because it isn't against their terms of service, nor is it illegal in any way, shape or form.

Locking this thread because the issue has been resolved, other then the "I don't like thing" issue you seem to be having, which is entirely 100% a personal problem.

On the IRC, Quinch was so kind as to make a bot that automatically links new threads. I noticed that in a chat context, Ponychan links can get a little long. Not ridiculous like some links can get, but even YouTube sees the benefit in shortening a URL like down to

So, think this is a thing that can happen? I think it'd be neat if this extended beyond just posts and also made image sharing from a post easier.

Don't reckon that was the initial reason, as it can just as easily be made via adding a subdomain and making the document root /beta/. In fact it would be more clean.
>> No. 160685
The only reason why the site's in /chan/ is because that's the way KubasaX has it's files set up.
>> No. 160686
It is irrelevant. There are no files a level above the workfloor of a web project, unless that project is completely dumb, and not even Kusaba X is that dumb. If board.php is in /chan/, then there is absolutely nothing (relevant) in the document root.

Just a quick mention - #ponychan, i.e. the /irc/ chat channel now lists new threads as they get posted. So, if you want to keep up with new threads, or even get notified when a thread in a certain board or by a certain poster crops up, you can do it there.
