/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/.

Would it be possible to let us filter by user ID? There's an anon poster I don't like but I'd rather not filter all anon posts.

I'm not sure how user IDs are assigned, exactly, but I'd suspect that they're not set in stone, given that they're only six digits. If that's the case, then such a function wouldn't serve much purpose, as it'd stop working once the person is assigned a new ID.

EDIT: Actually, I can confirm that they're not set in stone. I made a thread a week ago where my assigned ID was 31b1a, and I made another one just now with the ID of 73e186. So yeah, wouldn't work.

Yeah, ID's are only IP specific per thread. However ID filtering I can see being useful in a serial thread or something. Or maybe if a user is being obnoxious in that thread alone.

I'm not asking for anyone to be banned over it right now or anything because they weren't breaking the rules before it was a rule but seriously why are butts allowed but other forms of nudity aren't? It makes very little sense to me and I think it should be included in the rules.

uhh so like if nobody donates is the site literally going to be shut down? this seems like an issue that warrants more than just a brief locked thread.

what exactly would be a worthwhile donation? I don't have any money right this moment but I wouldn't mind giving like 15 bucks when I can. how much does it cost to run the site monthly?

Chewy *Element Of Fortitude*!!Twilight Sparkle 13768


it is indeed true that my tax return was only $15 dollars, however it is/was not the only money I had/have available for something like this.

I am (currently) in a situation where even if I end up completely broke (which does happen), I can still depend on my parents for the absolute necessities. So like, I can have literally zero dollars in my bank account but I'm not going to be out of food or have nowhere to live, basically.

in the long run it will not be a very sustainable lifestyle but that's okay because I have plans to improve things. but that's a whole other story. basically my point is, I don't want to be broke because of donating, but it also isn't the end of the world if I'm broke.

and I actually managed my money pretty well this month.

improving youtube embeds? Chewy +Element Of Fortitude+!MUSIC.FbVY 13600[View]

notice in pic related how, on our site, you have to click the "embed" button on a youtube link to be able to see the video title, whereas on 4chan, the title IS the link.

I feel like upgrading that here would be really helpful, especially in threads where people dump a lot of youtube links that are tedious to click one by one.

can this be done?

I know exactly how harsh they are over there, I've been posting there since it's start.

Moony shutting things down before they start is PART of the harshness of it. Being harsh isn't just tough with punishment, it's being tough by shutting things down at the merest hint of trouble (thereby actually limiting the growth of a conversation into something else) rather than letting things progress and taking it as it happens.

In other words, a proactive approach can be considered just as harsh as a reactive one.

Noonim 13978

Fair enough.

Still, I found it has an unfortunate reputation that was undeserved.


File: 1522715579518.png (221.07 KB, 361x620, 7657687989.png)

that's mainly because alot of people were attacking him for having a different political views

anyway, OP doesn't seem to want to want to continue this and there's no point in furthering this. graff has a new chance now

and a well deserved one i think

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?

So yeah, gonna leave this one sit. It's not harming anything or anyone.

!!Babs Seed ## Mod 13534

I'll leave this suggestion for another user to explore. We already resurrected seven old Ponychan themes last month and added one new theme, so this is not a priority to us. That being said, if anyone here wants to make their own theme, just download one of the existing themes as a template, set the site's theme to Yotsuba B, download Stylish (Chrome/Firefox), and play with the CSS rules during your own browsing time. A well-designed theme can take about a week or two for an experienced user with CSS. We'll implement a theme you post for us if it's any good. But at this point, there's plenty of other things on our plate to do, and we really don't have the time to make more themes -- at least not now.

Or Stylus. Stylish has been so goddamn broken lately on Firefox it's not even funny. Just read the latest reviews of it.
And Stylus does allow you to install styles from userstyles.org so that's not an issue either
