/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›

So I'm not trying to be a douchebag here.
Surprising, I know.
But I think that if posting Starlight is going to be not allowed as a rule then it should be listed as an official rule of the site.

This is why i say, maybe the mods should discuss just letting mikie deal with this particular issue himself.

Stepping Down as Mod Toothless AlligatorCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 14895[View]

For various reasons I will be stepping down as a mod. To name the big reasons: I have had increased responsibilities outside of pchan in recent months leaving me largely unavailable, and well, to put it simply, I wasn't really the best mod to begin with.

If anyone has further questions they are free to ask, but there isn't much else to it.

Do we need something like this? AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 14839[View]

Today I was browsing /pone/ and found a text banner at the top of the page linking to this information about that other chan no one wants to talk about.

I'm not posting this as a joke. I was wondering if Ponychan has ever had to face any potential legal actions such as are listed in the attached screen cap.

Seems that other chan isn't in as much trouble as their reputation would imply...

tl:dr Should we have a monthly transparency report?

There isn't really a need for something like that. The staff have contacted the authorities in the past, always in relation to suicide threats from users. I'm not aware of anything else of the sort, and I'm pretty sure nothing of the sort has happened at all since Mikie became admin.

Nothing but crickets chirping here. Since I have been admin there is nothing at all here. That's why I enforce the rules so much to comply with Canadian AND US law so I don't have to deal with any of that. 8chan is a different story because they allow so much dodgy content that we wouldn't ever allow here.

I shut down Fanboy+Easylist Merged and went back to the individual lists. In reality, you see no difference except that ponychan isn't barred by uBlock.

The only time I get that error message is if I try to post an image file that's somehow corrupted or too big.

Most of the time it's a quick pass through Photoshop to shrink the file size and re-save the image file, as well as switching the image to .jpg from .png or other file formats.

A year ago, I hated this place so much that I would have ragequit the site after seeing something like this.

Instead, I'm talking about it because I actually like Ponychan and want to continue posting here. And while most of that change is for personal reasons, a lot of it actually has to do with Mikie being a good admin. I like a lot of the changes he's made and I admire how he's dealt with crises, aside from a few personal outbursts. But most importantly, I know that he's the only one around who actually cares enough to hold that job and do something positive with it.

And that's why I don't want it to end like this. I don't want to lose him as an admin. But...fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuck, man! I just can't deal with being on a site that's run by a guy who wants a white state! Even if it has no bearing on how he runs the site, it is still massively disturbing.

This has got to stop. It is going to alienate good people for no reason! Just please, for God's sake, try to keep your shit together.
