/site/ - Site Issues

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

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.

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›

unresponsive script Elicoor13Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9958[View]

so i've been getting this on my notebook a lot lately. this is exactly the message it sends me:

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Script: https://www.ponychan.net/js/main.js?v=1483936985:2


is this a thing with anyone else, or is my notebook just garbo?

Gigantic threads have never been well supported here. If the issue showed up on a smaller thread then I'm going to prioritize this differently.

I'd like to rearchitect things so there's a pagination or lazy-loading system for big threads eventually. I've implemented other features into the current codebase like view-last-50 pages and the #cyclic tag in part to help alleviate the issues of large threads.

no, actually. i've been getting it just browsing the front page, like clockwork. again, this may just be a hardwear issue.

one thing that i will mention, the inclusion of serial threads on /oat/ has caused this to happen more frequently. i got it once or twice a day before it, but as of now it's every time i visit either /oat/ or /chat/.

I don't think shuckle or Eris should be mods on the discord.
They take sides.
They don't do their work as a mod.
They don't listen to the other party.
When someone is upset, they belittle their feelings.

Like me, yeah I'm annoyed as shit, but as Elusive said "Just cause it's little to you, doesn't mean it's not to him"

Why is this always the fucking case?

MBP is apparently a janitor. Haven't seen them outside the chat in like a year. Starshine is/was a janitor too, but hasn't logged in for so long they forgot they were.
Macil's response to all staffing complaints is that he doesn't actually care about the individual activity of any staff member. Word for word his response. So it's not surprising that such an approach leads to some staff doing all the work and burning out and others being absent. Very pro approach of course. Wonderful human resource management.

can we get a "watch thread" button at the bottom of threads (like, next to the most recent post) so when you're in a long thread you don't have to go all the way back up to the OP just to watch it?

I know it's not really a big deal but I think it would be helpful.

With a coming demarcation between /oat/ and /chat/, or at least, the difference that should already exist between them, I think people who are currently banned such as Steam Twist should be unbanned from /chat/ and allowed to return to the board with fewer rules, since they can just be barred from /oat/ and /pony/ etc if we want.

Updates, Part three. Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9664[View]

Hello everyone!

In keeping with recent discussion we've made a more clear cut distinction between /oat/ and /chat/.

It has been decided that /chat/ will be the place for 'controversial' threads in addition to the more 'adult' threads currently available.

By 'controversial', we mean threads that delve into political issues, scientifical debates(Like who is best pony(Twilght)) as well as complex issues that many people have extremely passionate opinions about.
With this change, it's hoped that /oat/ and /chat/ will better differentiate themselves and allow the users of both boards to find the appropriate niche for them.

This will leave /oat/ with the more social/silly topics and the normal behavior constraints from the recently updates rules.

When addressing issues in an official capacity, staff should use their tag as such, and when not in a official capacity, not use the tag. Not both at the same time for either.

This rule ">Racist, sexist, and other vitriolic behavior will not be tolerated. You don't have to be politically correct, but you are expected to maintain a minimum standard of behavior." needs to be amended to allow for jokes because people in the chat are making jokes meant to be harmless and getting warned for it.

Oh right, that's a rule.

I just expect to be bombarded by an atmosphere of near constant antisemitism that seems to start out as a joke at first, but slowly feels more and more unironic everyday.

But, nobody ever seemed to care, so, I just suspected it was one of those old guard rules nobody gave a shit about.

Not that it was even remotely ever enforced.

"Setup requires the installation of our development kit. Instructions are available within the kit. In short, there is a client side and server side option available. We recommend the assistance of a programmer and/or server administrator to properly configure it to your needs. There’s also a simpler implementation available for those who want to add some emoji to their website without using any scripts. Please head over to our Developers Page for more information."

I have never personally worked with EmojiOne, so if there are some technical reasons why implementing it would not be feasible, fine. But it is certainly worth looking into. Apple's emoji sort of suck, and having all emoji standardized would be good.

Does the thread watcher tell you how many new posts are in the threads, or does it say "unknown new"? When you click on the thread in the watcher, does it take you to a specific post and change the url so it ends with # and the number, or does it put you at the top and just say #unread at the end of the URL?

I get the impression that the staff aren't up to scratch with keeping up on reports or being around often enough.

There is no real public ban log either, which could clearly outline who received a ban and for what reason.

He should probably be extended to a perma if he continues the cancer behavior.
