/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›

Apparently the staff dont even have a modboard b/c macil is too lazy and didnt think it was necessary. After it was brought up *again* recently that hey it would be nice and useful to have one, he could only be assed to say that it *would* be if it auto alerted the staff to new threads; this leads to the conclusion that he wont be adding one until or unless he tinkers around for the next 13 months making a *perfect* board that does exactly that, instead of making one *now* and doing that later at his leisure (and just letting one thread on it, that all staff add to their EXISTING "watched threads" list, serve as the alert); so posting this for the common-sense "good enough is better than nothing" message to him, in the implausible scenario he decides to drop by the site-issues board of "his" website. Thanks.

Dude get over yourself. Considering that vitriolic racism, harassment, and general cunt behavior are all allowed and endorsed by the moderators, Graham can basically do as he pleases. Stop autistically screeching every time he makes a political thread. I know you think you're being "balanced" or whatever, but considering that we have literal nazis dominating discussion, someone with far left tendencies isn't going to be the worst thing ever.

I never see you complaining about the painfully obvious political bait threads other people make though. Funny that.

Master Announcement Thread ## AdminCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11072Locked[View]

I'm gonna be addressing recent issues and things that are going to be changing over the next week or so.

>The State of /pony/ /oat/ and /chat/


As was discussed in depth in the sticky there's some crossover here that could be better defined, after some discussion with the user base we came to some measure of an agreement on a definition for these boards, some concerns were raised however about community feelings about those changes.

I'm gonna outline the changes here, and over the course of the next week there will be discussion threads stickied at the top of the corresponding boards to make sure we get community input from people that might not check /site/

/pony/ - For all content related to the show.

/oat/ - All content not covered by /pony/ /chat/ and /rp/. Stricter standards of civility here then /chat/

/chat/ - Mature content, themes and political topics. More chan culture, less moderation.


The discussion threads for /oat/ and /pony/ will be going up shortly. /Chat/ won't have one, as there's no real change going on there and Fen handled that nearly a month in another thread on the board.

I do appreciate how we've had literally a week of zero communication between our so-called admins and the site as a whole. It's super great seeing that our admins are very good at paying attention and doing what needs to be done and, you know, keeping in contact with the site users about what the plans are.

What's really awesome is that the administration obviously considers the site so far beneath its meme-bers that they don't even bother telling us that they're busy or that they're sorry they haven't been able to get back to us.

You know, a month ago, when I said that something needed to be done to remove the redundancy between the site and the Discord? How's that coming along?

How about that whole thing wherein we were going to figure out just what the dichotomy between /oat/ and /chat/ was supposed to be? Any news?

Nope, because our admins are far too busy fucking the dog to actually have a chance to come online and discuss the future of this here imageboard, and I bet that, when we do finally see them, Astra will have been "sick" (what, did Slenderman give you that fucking cold, Astra?) or something equally stupid.

And of course we can't forget about the man, the myth the morass Macil who decides to ban people for an indefinite period, suspend the mod who fixes that, and then disappears back to /b/ and Friends over on /oat/ where he hides there amongst whomever deigns to give him the time of day.

You know, it's a good thing we have these two qualified individuals running the site, because I would hate to see where we'd be under the direction of someone like Fenolio. Could you imagine? We'd be fucking dead in the water, wouldn't we?

True, but as far as the ban length goes we only really have speculation to go off of on whether or not it was a purposeful decision. Though you're not wrong in being suspicious, cuz it is. We just can't prove it.

I concede everything else. Questions directed at admins should be answered by admins.

Chrome text undo issue Silvie Strength!TwiDasH7n2Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 10594[View]

#Minor Chrome Bug

When using ctrl-s / ctrl-r / ctrl-h to add text markup in the quick reply or regular reply on the Chrome browser, the ctrl-z 'undo' function does not know to undo those annotations. That's a little inconvenient when you add markup by hotkey and then realize you didn't want it.

For whatever reason, the undo works correctly for markup on Firefox.

"Harassment"?

Seriously?

Do you have any idea how much I was harassed by other users early on and no one did shit about it?

This is a personal grudge and it's blatant. You can't just 'enforce the rules' whenever you feel like it, and posting ONE image macro doesn't count as harassment.

It's childish, and if the mod team wants the users to respect them, they need to stop acting like spoiled children.

Also, locking a thread just because you don't want to hear what people have to say is also pretty childish.

Thank you, But that's factually incorrect since Macil is definitely willing to work with me and I don't find it at all hard to get him to see my point of view.

Users and staff are not banned for civil criticism. Though staff members are also expected to be cooperative in a team, not enforce rules selectively, or override bans without discussion.

This type of antagonism isn't acceptable on /site/ or from staff members. As such I'm suspending you pending a conversation with the rest of the site staff with weather or not you'll be returning to the staff or not.


Anthony received a ban for harassment across multiple actions. The ban is currently set to expire within a week. We know he has been misleading users about the specifics of the ban instead of discussing it with the staff. If you have concerns, please talk to the staff privately instead of creating /site/ threads

Astra you shit. Where's the thread.

I gave you eight extra hours, even. What the shit.

You want to lead this site? Actually lead it. Don't hide on your little fucking flirt-channel in Discord hoping I'll just give up and leave.

If you aren't going to get rid of the Discord, you've got to at the very least get rid of the overlap between it and /oat/ and /chat/.

What you honestly should do is use the Discord for two things: direct, rapid communication between users and mods, and giving the politics/shitposting/NSFW memers some place off site to circlejerk endlessly.

Remove politics from the site, throw it into a self contained chatroom where the people who like yelling about politics can yell to their hearts content, find some way to divide /oat/ and /chat/, maybe by keeping /chat/ NSFW and having it be the mature board but otherwise not unlike /oat/.

No matter what, we need to stop using the Discord as the basis of the site, and use it as support. As it is, it overlaps far too much of the site, and that's just going to kill off this place.
