/site/ - Site Issues

The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions.

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

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.


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›

The /Site/ Sticky:
Welcome! This sticky will cover the majority of frequently asked questions as well as provide important information for using the site. Click each box for info.

● Formatting & Hotkeys
While browsing:
  • Q brings up the Quick Reply - if you have it enabled in the Settings.
  • Ctrl+b will make highlighted text bold
  • Ctrl+i will put it in italics
  • Ctrl+s will spoiler your text
  • Ctrl+h will hide your text, creating a [Show] button for people to reveal
  • Ctrl+u will underline it
  • Ctrl + r is for strikethrough
  • [cs][/cs] will create Comic Sans text
  • [tt][/tt] will create Typeface font
  • [shy][/shy] will create smaller text
  • [rcv][/rcv] will create larger text and activate the royal canterlot voice wordfilter
  • Red bold headings are obtained by placing two equal signs (==) on each side of ==your text== (On one line only)
  • [url] function - you can make hyperlinks in the following manner: [url=http://google.com]Click here[/url]
  • On /pony/, /fan/ and /rp/, you can edit your posts or threads. Click the checkbox of the post you want to edit and click the [Edit] button in the bottom right corner of the page to edit it.
  • You can use an automated "dice" by entering [XdY], X being the number of dice and Y the number of sides each dice has. For example [2d6] will throw two 6-faced dice.
  • You can also make additions or subtractions, useful for roleplaying functions. For example [1d20-5]
  • Thread watching: There is a 'Watch' link at the bottom right of every OP. When it's clicked, a 'Watcher' menu will appear near the Settings tab. You will be alerted of new messages in watched threads.
  • Cross--thread linking is done as such: >>>/test/47
  • Catalog: each board has a "Catalog" which will show you all the threads currently on every page of each board. For example: catalog for /anon/. The catalog will show you a preview of each thread's OP text, the OP image as well as the number of replies in each thread.
● Settings
Ponychan has a Settings button on the right of its navbar. Here are some of the features it provides:
  • The "style" field allows you to use different themes.
  • Show mature content threads: Will reveal the automatically hidden mature threads on certain boards. Off by default.
  • Treat mature images as spoilers: Spoilers images in mature threads, when threads are unhidden.
  • Reveal Spoilers will bypass the Spoilers system (Images and text)
  • Navbar stays at the top: "Sticks" the navbar to the top of the page. It is off by default: the navbar scrolls down with you.
  • Use QR for posting: Highly recommended, the Quick Reply allows you to post in a thread without scrolling to the top every time. Q brings it up.
  • Show "You" on links to your posts: Will put the text (You) after a reply directed to a post you have made.
  • Reply notifier sound: A sound alert is played when someone replies to you in a thread- if you have the thread opened.
  • Filtered Names and Filtered Tripcodes: Prevents post made with those names or tripcodes from being seen
● Hash-tags
Ponychan allows you to create hash-tags, which are a tagging feature.
You create a #Tag of your choice like so: [#Text of your choice].This is important for some boards like /rp/ and /anon/: it is also how you mark a thread as mature. On mature boards, a button is available when making the OP to add this tag automatically. The special tag [#Anon] removes the ability for replies to have names.

Note: Any NSFW image posted in a non-Mature thread is a rule violation and will be treated as such. Please tag your threads properly for the benefit of all users

## Developer 11267Sticky[View]

I've set up a bugtracker so that issues/bugs/feature requests can be consolidated into one place to make it easier to keep track of, rather than having to watch multiple threads. One of the nice things about BitBucket is that you don't need to have an account in order to add an issue. If you have a BitBucket account and want to post with that, that's up to you.


Some things to keep in mind:
1. Make your issue submissions clear and concise.
2. If you need to submit a screenshot, the issue tracker has an option to upload files.
3. The issue tracker is only for actual issues/bugs/feature requests/etc. Any frivolous issues or shitposts will be deleted.
4. Also, this should be used only for issues with Ponychan's code/strucure, not ban requests and user complaints and whatnot. Keep that stuff on /site/.

Now that i have your attention with this image, i'd like to address /site/'s standards.

Or rather, it's current lack thereof.

/site is, and i quote: "The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions."

There is discussion, but there is also a lot of ad hominem attacks and uncivil behaviour in general being thrown around.

Towards the end of /meta/'s life, we tried board-only bans for people who couldn't keep themselves civil while discussing things.

Going forward, i'm going to start issuing /site/-only bans for people who: Use ad hominem arguments, do not contribute to the discussion at hand or do so in a belligerent manner.

Country/etc flags on /ef/ ## Mod 13466[View]

Mikie brought up the idea of a possible feature on /ef/: country flags, like on 4chan's /pol/ and other boards. If this is implemented, it would probably default to your country's flag, or you could set a custom one out of a list if you prefer. And the OP might have an option to disable flags in their thread. Who knows?

Would you guys be interested, or should it be left as-is?

Allow me to suggest my plans for this. I have a plan for pony flags on /oat/.

Where you'd see a dropdown menu to select it.

That's all I want and ask for.

I think you guys will love it.

Chewy +Element Of Fortitude+!MUSIC.FbVY 13500


I think that's a good idea :)

could we have a pony flag and a country flag at the same time?

Mikie(phone)!GlimDubEqI 13501

Well my proposal was pony flags on /oat/ and geoflags on /ef/. I think it would be too clustered at the same time.

Starshine!Laura/wmXM 13462

I'm like 99% sure they were all made by the same anon, but it's not possible for OPs to delete threads once they've been posted in, right?

Is it possible you guys mistook that anon for Graff and [D+]'d him? Because I'm also 99% sure he's not Graff. That anon posts on Ponyville and /GET/ too, he used to use the name Blueberry I believe.

Concerning "Ban Evasion" and Visibility of Bans Noonim 13301[View][Last 50 Posts]

So, a few days ago, I made the unfortunate discovery that, as it happens, the way bans are done on this site are unfortunately out of date. It is very easy to be banned, and never realize it, or to be banned and believe it to be revoked, only to get a massive increase on your ban for "evasion" that was never intended.

Now, a part of this issue could be solved by following a certain aspect of the "Site Staff Standards", but I'll leave that for another thread. Instead, I'd like to explore options to prevent these types of events in the future.
As it currently stands, the average user cannot be reasonably expected to abide a ban, when they may well not even know it exists, leaving off issues of assumed revoked bans. And, I can certainly say, getting banned for "evasion" and then worse having the lot remain despite explaining the ordeal to the administration breeds a helluva lot of animosity. I'd make the argument that it is not a healthy standard for a community.

So; how do we fix this?
It seems to me there's a few options, though unfortunately most would probably require some development.
The first, method'd be adopting a 8chan-esque "ban list", showing public bans and their duration, as well as, I believe, bans that've been revoked. Issues with this are, of course, that the bans are public. Might not be ideal, depending on your stake there.
Still leaves the issue with difficulty noticing the ban in the first place, but, at least, after you've noticed it you have a place to check. A "ban page" would also be a nice addition, as it seems currently, the only way to see the ban page is to attempt to make a post.

Another option is to link bans to names, as well. This'd be an optional addition, in most situations, I'd say, so you could obviously avoid it when made by a imitator, or an anon. This'd give you the application regardless of IP, which'd avoid issues for those of us with dynamic or multiple devices.

Another, probably shit option, is accounts. Bonus points for giving people a way to directly contact, but it's also a bit of a hassle, and goes against our usual imageboard standards.

Is this border+background intended? !ScyphTlOY6 13403[View]

Thumbnails in #mature threads now have a border around them, and a background that appears in transparent images. That Lyra picture is supposed to be just Lyra on top of transparency, nothing else.

I don't think there's any reason to make them look different from non-#mature threads...

But anyway, since I suspect this is an accidental change that happened because of the new Spoiler and NSFW images, allow me to take the opportunity to say that I really like the new ones.

Moderation Suggestion Macaroni !RevGiOKgRo 13294[View]

Delete /trash/ed threads instead of effectively duplicating the offending content.
The "discussion" never picks up in /trash/, and the locked thread may still subtly agitate posters on the board it existed on.

Mikie(phone)!GlimDubEqI 13297

Sometimes this happens with really bad threads. I often leave linked ones there so they don't ask "why is my thread deleted?". It's helpful.

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 13299


I think deleting them is a bad idea because it's better to have them there so people understand why they were trashed and what the context was for stuff if they missed it. anyone who doesn't want to see it can just hide it. I guarantee you if mods just started outright deleting threads lots of people would start bitching, but when you leave the thread visible it lets the mods be like, "look, son, THIS is why your thread is shit, this isn't something shady."
