Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PONYCHAN! !!Pinkie PieCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 2529771[View All]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9rNxmykogM

Alright, everypony, it just turned midnight over here in the EST zone, which means...
It's Ponychan's birthday!

Now, sure, you can argue all you like about different time zones and stuff, but I don't care! I start the thread now, and we party! STARTING NOW!

Five long years ago, this site started off and managed to find its place on some shaky ground. Over the years, the fandom has changed in pretty much every way, but there are very few sites that can claim to have been there since the very start. We may not be the biggest site, and we may not be the fanciest, but we've been here for five years now, and that's more than pretty much everything else in the fandom can claim.
A few of us have been here from the start, and some of us have only recently joined in on the fun, but it all boils down to us being here, on this site, chatting and being friends! We have our differences, and there can be disagreements or tension from time to time, but we're all still here. We all keep coming back to make posts here. There's something special about a site that can do that, and there's something special about the users that stick around with it.

Now, we've got a wonderful day ahead of us, and we're going to make sure we celebrate it right. We're going to celebrate everything that has brought us this far, and everything that we are now. Reminisce about Ponychan and get nostalgic! What were some of your favorite moment's in Ponychan's history? Favorite users? And how about now? What are your current favorites? Anything you're looking forward to? And if you don't want to talk favorites, just get in here and be happy and friendly! Just forget all of your worries and come have fun with all of the wonderful users of Ponychan!

Now, in the words of the great Pinkie Pie:
"Get your hooves up, party starting out right, now!
Everypony, everypony, get down!
Time to make a wish, better make it right, now!
It's been a year and today is your birthday party!
Make a wish, it's your birthday!
Make a wish, it's your birthday party!"


TL;DR
Ponychan turns five years old today, let's party!

Also, please be kind in here! This is a thread for everypony! Let's make sure this is a happy occasion for all, and not fight!

>>2530202
Not really. One thing that really annoys me at work is when i go on break and sit down to have a nice quite time to eat or to play my DS and keep having someone try to talk to me.

I don't want to see rude by just telling them to fuck off, but I honestly have no desire to talk and just want to be in peace on my break since I spend 99% of my time off of break talking at people.

Its especially bad when this autistic girl comes up to me when I have my DS out and starts talking non-stop about her DS games and Animes and trying to show me videos on her phone.

All it does is make me want to not talk to them anymore. I just want to avoid them and not speak to them, even if they try to speak to me, which I doubt they would. I'm not a good person once you make me upset. I am known to be vengeful for years and years.

Unfortunately, that's only going to perpetuate the silence, which won't help at all. But, like I said, there's really not much to be done. You can't make people talk to you. If they want to talk, they'll talk. If not, well... what can you do? Dwelling on it won't really help, especially if they do want to talk later. But that's a decision for you to make. Yeah, it can suck when you feel left out or ignored, but my general response is to just go do something else. I can't really give advice on it.

I try to talk to people, like you demonstrated, and try to get some conversation going. But it doesn't seem to matter what I say. I think I'm ignored because I'm not like everyone else. They cannot relate to me in any fashion so the simple thing to do is ignore me and hope I go away.

I mean....damn. But I should have known.

That's a mighty powerful assumption, there. You're anonymous, so it's hard for anybody to actually say, "We've got nothing in common with them, so let's not talk to them." After all, the point of being anonymous is so that nobody knows who you are. You're, well... anonymous. You're really looking down on yourself pretty heavily here. I mean, we're talking to you here and now, aren't we?

Also, you skipped the suggestion of nabbing yourself a name and a trip. Maybe setting a solid identity for yourself could help with your problem.

Hi, different anon here. I've always had pretty good success talking to people anon, but for me it really only works if I'm the first one taking interest. I look at somebody and say, "hey! They seem interesting. I'm going to get to know that person."

Don't know what a trip is.

And even if I managed a name, I guarantee I would still be ignored. It might actually be easier to do because they would just have to see the name and move on. Easier to see, easier to avoid.

And this is the only place anyone speaks to me. Not sure why. Possibly because the atmosphere is jovial so I bring it down and people see that.

I never actually was anon on Ponychan, so it's hard for me to understand anonymous culture and how to go about being an anonymous poster. Thanks for stepping in. c:

>>2530223
Tripcode. It's the little thing at the end of my name that reads "!SonicFbkn."
They're randomly generated from a password you make, so it's near impossible for anybody else to use the exact same tripcode. It's what keeps people from, say, coming online and using my name. They can call themselves Nimble Wing (Element of Flight), but since they don't have my tripcode, they can't impersonate me. There are programs to get you custom ones, like some users have done. But you can also just go with random stuff.

And you're really looking at this in all the worst says. Like... I think it's beyond optimism vs pessimism at this point. All you're doing now is just convincing yourself that nobody likes you, which isn't true. I've seen you around, both as an anon and as the name you sometimes use, and I've seen people talking to you. I think, perhaps, you should take a step away and have a little break. Think things over a bit. Maybe consider picking up a name? (Don't have to, though. That's your call.) But sitting in here and talking about how nobody likes you and shooting down everything we say with "But I'll still get ignored" won't get anywhere. If anything, it'll become a self fulfilling prophecy, which I'd rather it not become.

I have no expertise to do anything that complicated. I would have to be pretty damn smart to accomplish that.

I just feel it personally when people ignore me. And it doesn't happen when I'm ignored once or twice because I know that happens. But when it happens again and again, I start questioning.

>>2530227
You don't have to be smart. It's literally just:
[name]#[whatever you want]
and boom. You've got a name and trip. It only gets a little tougher if you want a custom one, and I'm sure there are several users, including me, willing to get you a custom tripcode. It's easy if you know how to do it and have the right program.

I think you're making it out to be worse than it is. And if I'm wrong, complaining about it won't help. You might just have to change your approach or try something new. Things won't get better just because you talk about how bad it is. You have to do something about it.
But, again, my recommendation is to take some time off of your computer/whatever device you're on to think and relax. It'll get better, I'm sure. But not if you just keep telling yourself it never will.

>>2530226
I mostly meant that I don't understand the whole staying anonymous thing. I mean, yeah, I've been a tripfag since the very start. But going anon just never appealed to me. I would much rather have some way of letting people recognize me outside of image habits.

Different Anon here.

I used to have a name, but every time I have an identity for too long I become protective of my image, worried of how others see me. Too worried to have fun.

So, being anon appeals to me because it allows me not to deal with my insecurities...
Actually that doesn't sound like a good thing when I write it out...

That's true. It's always a pain having to come up with a new image set with a different naming scheme each time I feel like talking.

I have a name for when I want to be recognized. I just don't want to be too well recognized.

No, if that's your reason, stick by it. It's as good a reason as any other to stay anon, and I respect that. c:

>>2530230
I mean, granted, I'm sure people could recognize me by my pictures and filenames anyway, so it's not like that's a big deal for me. But I much prefer having that name do the job for me.
And that's fine. I guess being anonymous does that job pretty well. It makes sense.



Also, as much as I hate to have to do this, in about half an hour, I'll be unstickying the thread. It was a great party, but the day is pretty much over for... everyone. The thread will still be here, of course, so don't worry. It just won't be stickied.

I tried to make sure it all turned out well, and it looks like it did. I'm pretty happy with it all.

I'm hoping he took my advice and took a break. He was really beating himself up over that whole thing. :c

Aaaaaaand unstickying the thread. Thanks so much to everyone who dropped by to help celebrate five years of Ponychan. It was loads of fun, and it made me super happy to see everyone in here celebrating together! If you didn't make it to the thread, don't worry. It's staying around! It just won't be a sticky. We can still have fun! And besides, we've got the rest of Ponychan! After all, isn't that why we had this thread in the first place?

So thank you. Thank you to all of the users and to all of the rest of the mod staff. You are the crazy people who brighten up my day and make me want to keep coming back here, even after all of this time. I love you all. Stay happy, everypony! <3
