Hey there, everyone! I'm Nimble Wing. Some of you know me, most of you probably don't. Either way, I'm the guy who runs the FAQ and Contact Us pages here on Ponychan. Lately, most of my major changes and updates to the FAQ have simply been tacking on something new, such as adding in details on the Settings Page or going over the different features of Ponychan X. However, just tacking things on doesn't exactly serve to fix everything, so I've been thinking. Why not just see what everyone thinks and do it again?

That's where you all come in. I very rarely hear mention of Ponychan's FAQ page, and I try to fix things whenever I do. But I'd like to actually see if I can get you all to look it over and tell me what you think. Some of it has been up there for a while, some of it might be imperfect or out of date, and some of it might be able to be written better. What do you guys think? Is there anything you'd like to have added to the FAQ? Anything you'd like me to change? Remove entirely? I'd just like to get a feel for how you guys see the FAQ so I'll know what to do with it. I've got some things that I already plan to do, but it's nice to know what the users think. It's written for the users, after all!

Anyway, I'm putting this thread up before I go to bed, so I won't be responding until later. But this will at least have it open to both the morning and afternoon users for me to see later, and I'll be able to respond to everyone in one go. I'll be back online somewhere around twelve hours after this post goes up, so if you really want to be around when I get back, keep an eye out then. No promises, though!

So that's that! Let me know what you all think of the FAQ, and I'll try my best to get to work on it. I won't be able to do everything, of course. One step too far, and the mods put me on lockdown. But I'll certainly try to do what I feel would make it better! Thanks a bunch in advance for all of your posts, and I'll see you all later.

-Nimble Wing

>You're implying that I'm not having fun in my own ways.
I sometimes like to respond to obvious jokes in a serious tone. I kinda find it entertaining, mainly because of how people respond. But that's just me, and nobody else ever finds it fun anyway. Just another of my quirks, I suppose.

But you're right about the add-ons section. Well... mostly. I'll fix the Ponychan X link, but PonyUpZ and Ponychan Notifier still exist. They just don't really get updated anymore and are both... a bit overshadowed by Ponychan X and its features. I'll keep the links there, because I know that there are at least a few people who still use PonyUpZ, at least. (I do, simply for one or two of the features that aren't present in Ponychan X. But that's nothing I think anybody else uses regularly, so it's not exactly important.)
Thanks for the feedback!

External version: 2.33
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 []

Just give him his own PHP file for uploading to the PCX JS file. Similar files exist for stuff like /gala/ thread changes, iirc.

So first of all, I want to say how awesome the new youtube embed is (mostly because now I can see it). That said I've noticed that youtube embeds that youtube embeds that are posted when a thread updates don't play. You have to exit the thread and go back in in order to play it. It's not really that big of a deal, but I figured I would mention it because it is an inconvenience.

So if I get banned for breaking the same rule within one week twice, the second one is naturally extended , am'I rite?

So, if I break 1 rule, get a warning for it and break another rule and get banned, is that latter ban extended?

There seems to be a lot of spambot posts across all of the slower boards on the site, should we report all of that stuff or just ignore it?

IIRC, it received mixed feedback, much of it having to do with a certain pink mod deciding to leave the fetish threads up and asking people not to let them get too fetishy.

You need to refresh the thread. You can still click the check box for your post, scroll down, and click the edit button
>> No. 159628
The issue with Ponychan X should actually be fixed. If you still see your posts not getting an edit button specifically on autoupdating the thread, then it's definitely a bug. But so far I haven't seen it happen in a long time, so that news would be new to me.

The current flaw with the edit button though is that it takes your post history and just wraps it into a JSON string saved in your local storage under item 'settings.10'. None of it gets erased unless you manually do so yourself. Therefore, if your post history is long enough, you can max out your local storage space and have no room to make any more edit buttons. Ultimately when this happens, you may get an error on pX stating that your local storage item is not valid JSON.

If you type this in the address bar, it'll output your post history in a JSON string at the bottom of the page.
javascript:; document.body.appendChild(document.createTextNode(localStorage.getItem("settings.10")));

Perhaps if I may suggest later on that we could later migrate the locally saved post information in 'settings.10' to something more feasible, maybe IndexedDB?
>> No. 159646
Would be a fairly overdone solution, the type of storage IndexedDB is built to handle is way larger than our post count. A much more efficient one would be to simply delete expired entries - i.e. any posts outside of /meta/ and whatever other boards require posting. To achieve this maxed out storage space you would literally need to have thousands of posts on /meta/ and the like. An incredible feat, to say the least. Even so, few users could ever reach the amount required to max out the storage space, unless the way the data is being stored is inefficient? I mean, I have no idea why it needs to store the password, your current password is supposed to be the key here, and I can't say what the relevance of the timestamp is.

Edit: I'm pretty sure there's some pruning already involved. My post cache only goes back to March 31st.

>> No. 159443
Because according to the current rules governing sexual content this isn't something I would expect to be allowed. And if I owned a business and some woman was in my store with a sheer top and her nipples poking out I'd probably ask her to leave, especially if it was a family business and there were minors present.

And there we have it.

then it wouldn't be analogous to that image, since the "shirt" the character was wearing was semi-transparent and the tits were pretty visible.

dear moderators of : why are threads which are made about having sex with pokemon not sent to a deletion board? is it because anons are not making them, as comparable threads made by unfamiliar people would likely be sent away to /coolstorybrony/ or /eww/ or i forgot the name of the boards. i doubt this, but this is mysterious! is it because you want to have sex with pokemon?

i find this odd because we seem to have these threads at least once a day, if not more! this is a strange and unfortunate circumstance, as i am unsure if a thread about someone wanting to suck an eevee's tiny smelly little fox dick is appropriate for ponychan, especially not multiple times in the span of a 24 hour period!

i look forward to your timely response. thank you
