Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

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›

Bad hombres Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828284

From an article by Jennifer Burton et al. in yes! magazine online:

'Stereotypes persist in both how characters are drawn and how they talk, with "bad guys” using non-American accents and dialects. We see this in characters like Dr. Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb or Nightmare Moon on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.'

Does anyone out there have any insight into what these people are talking about?

While she talks a bit different than Luna, Nightmare Moon has no obvious accent to me at all.

I hear a bit of stereotypical "evil queen", but like Doofenshmirtz it doesn't sound like anything specific

That embedded compilation was an eye-opener (or ear-opener). The Nightmare Moon voice -- and by extension, the "generic evil queen" voice -- reduces to "ham actor." The dialect is basically US, with exaggerated enunciation and a thin overlay of Received Standard British (e.g., dropping terminal R's)-- a stagy version of the slightly affected "Atlantic" dialect that Rarity speaks. Every so often NM forgets to ham it up, and a bit of upper-class New York dialect comes through ("You're kidding, right?") The Mane-iac has a similar dialect.

The lesson from all this: evil speaks with the voice of a bad actor from New York. Hardly the "non-American stereotype" criticized in the quote from the OP.

Reviewing the clips in that compilation was an eye-opener in another way: that first episode was good. I had forgotten how good it was.

Only the Daring Do villains stuck me as non-natives.
