So, as most of you are all aware, the MLP fandom is not exactly alive and kicking anymore. We have noticed that a majority of the site is no longer really pony related in any real way outside of /pony/ and a small sprinkling of /rp/.
As such, the mod team and I have been considering opening the site up to be more of a "general" fan site. Not specifically just ponies.
What does this mean? It simply means the overall pony motif will be going away and the site will get a more fitting name not directly related to MLP.
Q: "Will /pony/ be deleted?"
A: No. All pony related content will remain and be allowed, we will just not be making it the main focus.
Q: "What is going to happen to /ef/, /oat/ and /chat/?"
Nothing. These boards will remain as "general purpose" boards not directly related to any fandoms.
Q: "So what is actually going to change?"
A: To be honest, not all that much. We will probably just be adding boards related to other fandoms if we see a rising interest in them. All the things you currently have shouldn't be going away.
