Welcome to Ponychan.net! This is an imageboard for older fans of the show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”. [What?]
Failing to follow these rules may result in a ban from using the site.
Blatant personal attacks will not be tolerated.
Blatant attempts to goad or “bait” users into uncivil conduct will not be tolerated.
Disruptive behaviors that prevent others from engaging in a thread are prohibited.
Racist, sexist, and other vitriolic behavior will not be tolerated. You don't have to be politically correct, but you are expected to maintain a minimum standard of behavior.
Stalking, harassment, or posting of others' personal information are prohibited.
Friendly banter/mockery is fine, but hostility is not.
Spamming is prohibited.
No malicious impersonation of other users.
Do not post content illegal under United States law.
Accessing this site means you are responsible for the content of your posts, images, and the consequences of them.
The staff reserves the right to enforce these and all other rules and guidelines in the manner they see best for the site.
In general, R34 and gore are not allowed:
The above set of rules against R34 and gore do not apply to properly tagged mature content threads on supporting boards. Non-MLP mature-tagged content may be removed at moderator discretion. See the Site Usage section for information on using this feature.
Pornography and sexual images depicting minors (including drawings) are not allowed anywhere on the site.
All threads on this board are to be related to ponies, the show, or the official media in some way.
No erotic roleplay.
Threads and canons are allowed to create their own thread rules.
All threads should be MLP-related.
Look for similar pre-existing threads before creating new ones.
Please post only fan-created works on this board. Official show content should be posted on /pony/. Official show merchandise may be posted and discussed here.
In the case where site staff is not 100% sure on a judgement or there is disagreement between the staff, rule breaks may incur bans that prevent posting on specific boards, posting images, or a combination of the two.
If you encounter a problem with the actions of the site staff, or on the site in general, please do not hesitate to contact us directly using the information below.
Moderators will always seek to understand a situation fully before issuing any ban.
Moderators are required to be in communication with their fellow staff members and will always seek a second opinion when unsure of an action.
Any moderator that acts outside of the established rules to deal with disruptive behavior will consult with other members of staff, and a mod post will be made explaining why action was taken. These actions will be reviewed with the admins, the rules amended, and changes announced if necessary.
Bans that range from one second to one hour are considered warning bans, meant to discourage certain behavior and give an explicit warning that users are unable to ignore when rules or the spirit of said rules are being broke.
Bans that are longer than an hour are meant to block bad behavior from the site. These can be appealed if the user demonstrates they are aware of why they are banned. Bans can be re-applied or extended if behavior is not adjusted after the ban or during the appeal process.
Bans can be appealed and will be reviewed by members of the staff. In the event there's any confusion or concern over an appeal then more than one moderator will review it before a decision is made.
There is no signup; you can enter any name you like (or no name, bearing in mind it can sometimes be confusing to chat with Anonymous, Anonymous and Anonymous rather than Alice, Carol and Bob).
You may use a tripcode like Bob#putasecretpasswordhere to consistently identify yourself as that Bob!wVf.9l8o4E — this works on most similar *chan imageboards. Programs like Tripcode Explorer and MTY are available to search for tripcodes which form attractive patterns or words.
This site has several features that other *chan sites often require separate userscripts for, like a Quick Reply dialog for posting and auto-updating threads. You can configure the site with the settings button at the top-right corner of the page. Different themes are also available for you to use to view the site. For more info on the site's features and options, check out >>>/site/3063.
The site employs a tagging system for adult content threads on the /chat/ board. By default, all tagged mature content is hidden from view. You will not see it unless you choose to unhide it through your "Settings" link in the upper right corner of the page. To post a thread for such content, on the above mentioned boards you will find a checkbox for it. Checking this and posting your thread as normal will automatically hide it from those who do not wish to see it. This tag covers mature themed content appropriate for the specific board, but does not include any underage depictions (ponies included), real actual depictions of hard gore, content deemed extreme, or non-pony related content. At the staff's discretion they will prune such material. Deliberately posting content that would be covered by the tag without using it may result in bans.
