/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›

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.

Implement EmojiOne on the site Wesley!CNCtclhQl6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9267[View]

http://emojione.com/faq/
"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.

Just want to say that I am actually impressed with the lack of CP, the trashing of unfunny shitposts, and the level of mod involvement in the mod-questioning threads.

Would still like sounded .webm files, but thats for another discussion.

this, I don't think I've seen a single CP thread in weeks (knock on wood), Macil must have finally got those filters working, and although I think there are a few threads that could use trashing, I'm happy to see that there is at least some stuff being done and everything isn't being completely ignored.

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?

So someone has been ban evading and changing their name to get around my filter to talk shit to me.

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.

Counterpoint 1: Normal posts would get filtered just for being too similar to previous ones, like Chewy said.
Counterpoint 2: Shitposting wouldn't get filtered if they're altered enough from previous posts.
Counterpoint 3: Implying whose posts are interesting and whose aren't, exactly? Subjective.
