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%

>that's an issue of spoiler rule enforcement.
Yes, you guys might want to talk about that.

But even if you don't change anything there, some people want to hide their potential spoilers of any show and some others just like to have a little fun, so consider implementing it regardless of rules.

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 commented a long while back about how the Quick Reply box followed my mouse when I tried to drag it around. As in, it would not stop following my cursor even after I let go and if memory serves there was no solution at the time and I'm hoping there's been one since then?

So half the time the weird Pokemon sex threads on /oat/ are deleted or moved. The other half, things like this guy talking about how he wants to touch a pokemon's dick are allowed to just chill out on the board.

What is the actual policy here, if someone could tell me? Because we had a gigantic thread pertaining to this subject awhile back and nothing came of it. It would be nice to get an update!

Looking at the pX settings, I think that it might be able to fix it, but it's not a setting so much as a complete overwrite of post styles. So I'm not really sure what I'm doing with it. I bet that's the fix people came up with, though.

No idea why I'd only start having this problem now...

Oh, weird, okay. I was looking at the wrong thing, which was way more complicated, but when I found Force Time Correction, it was already checked, so I unchecked it, and now the site saved my times correctly.

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.

Okay, so I know I'm probably missing something incredibly obvious here, but images are not expanding when I hover the mouse over them.

I've clicked that little tickbox any number of times and refreshed even more pages and... Nothing. I don't think anything on pX is affecting it, and I don't have that many Chrome extensions.

What's causing this?

I've encountered this issue multiple times and am in firm belief that it's caused by a webkit bug. The event name that is triggered is called 'mouseenter', which was founded by Microsoft, while mainstream webkit (at the time) was run by Apple. Apple Webkit was the very last of the main browsers to adopt the specification and kind of did so haphazardly. Both Firefox and Internet Explorer have the implementation correct but webkit very likely still has issues.

That being said, the only way I know to fix the bug, is to restart your computer for some reason. If that doesn't work, then unfortunately you're probably out of luck.

Hello /meta/

As I have been around for about over a year, I've witnessed an increasing amount of flamewars and such compared to last year. The drama has increased - specifically on /oat/ - for a while now. I want to avoid another Bagsgate, but I believe the community is dying off. If ponychan doesn't change its behavior, this may spell the end of this site.

A new person (or someone pretending to be a new person) joins this site periodically. Sometimes they might even post an OC. However, sometimes, they might give off an impression (or an OC) that people don't like and that prompts others to harass that new person. Even if that new person was trying to be kind and friendly, people will endlessly harass that person. It's not cool, it's not nice, it's just being an asshole.

Another thought is that when people are banned, there is a lack of people taking responsibility for their actions and instead blaming the banning moderator and/or the person they were in a flamewar with. Furthermore, many times I've witnessed people starting shit with each other and then a crowd always side with one user to lift pitchforks against another, which devolves into one single hivemind. For example, when someone in an /oat/ thread says something of whatever controversy, everyone is so quick to lift the finger at that person when they don't even realize the thoughts/feelings of that other person and instead jump in and hound on that person. I've become a frequent redditor since June 2014, and it's something I've often experienced on /r/dota2, where someone says something unpopular and it quickly delves into a flamewar with all against one. I don't need to mention any names since you guys should already know who I'm referring to.

Note: I am not blaming mods. I realize that even if you have the best mods ever, if your general population is full of bullshit, then the community will suck. Source: Bungie forums.

tl;dr: /oat/ community is fucking trash, no one wants to acc

I find it funny that ponychan started because of that sort of stuff happening in the first place, something to do with 4chan I believe, It's a bit ironic that now ponychan is on the brink of breaking up because of the same things that started it.

Alright, this idea started as a joke, but now I'm really curious as to what would happen.

How about we collapse all of the boards into a SINGLE BOARD? Not permanently, mind you. Just for a day or two.

On the surface, this seems like the most idiotic idea possible. In fact, that is exactly what it may be. But doing it temporarily could encourage users of the different subcommunities to mingle and see what other subcommunities may actually be of interest to them.

When the experiment is done, we can snap everything back to normal and regroup on /meta/ to discuss how it went. If all goes well, we bring the chan closer and increase site usage. If all goes poorly, we can roast marshmallows over the flamewars and laugh at the dramafest. It's a win/win!

Almost not a week passes without talk of merging /chat/, or a thread about doing things to /oat/.

Yet, what about some of these other boards? i understand /good/ is in limbo, a result of a failed effort to do community outreach.

But i think we all need to take a good hard look at /collab/, /fic/, /art/, /g/, /dis/, /int/, /vinyl/, /merch/, and even /ooc/.

at this point, none of these boards are even as active as /chat/ is, yet /chat/ is always at the forefront of our merger discussions.

If inactivity and redundancy truly is the problem, should we not consider merging these first before targeting bigger boards? At least /chat/ gets a number of threads and over a hundred posts a week...

/ooc/ might be a separate topic altogether, but roleplaying has certainly slowed to the point where we could merge the ooc threads with the general /rp/ (with their consent, of course).

The draw thing on /berry/ doesn't work, it requires something in the server side, likely the actual program itself.
What's there is just the remnents of my fucking around with /board/ settings back when i was admin.

It's an idea i've had for /art/ for a while, but there was no point in bringing the topic up while it was unlikely to go anywhere.
