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›

Then why much older, unbumped threads sit in the catalog? The last post for software ponies comes from 30 Dec, some threads on /ef/ remain dead since the beginning of December.
Most of the /chat/ threads are gone from /ef/ without any reason and remain locked on /chat/.

certain threads are not bumping despite being nowhere near the bump limit

the ones I have noticed are the trap porn thread and the current Story serial thread

I'd be pretty surprised if this was intentional so I figured I would bring it the mods/devs attention

Regarding the Recent "No Bait" Rule on /ef/ NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13143Locked[View]

Seems as the other thread was unfortunately locked, so in order to continue this line of dialogue, I'd say a new one is in order to discuss this recent addition of a rule.

My stance is that "bait" is not something easily defined, and that thus far, the primary example, being https://www.ponychan.net/ef/res/55612+50.html#55612 , is not of sufficient quality to actually make any clear cut definitions of what is or is not allowed.
This is, to me, something users will cross without ever realizing it, finding themselves banned, or their threads deleted, for something they do not understand.

I do not believe this is acceptable. Having rules is fine and dandy, you can have as silly rules as you like, but people need to be able to understand what they did wrong. They need to be able to avoid that. Even if I don't necessarily agree with a rule, out of principle, a rule like "No Posts About Griffons" is clearly defined well enough to be avoided.
I, and others, would have only ourselves to blame, were we to break that rule.

A rule like what is now evidently writ as "Moderation will combat blatant low quality trolls,", though was originally phrased as "Blatant attempts at bait are against the rules.", is not clear enough to be avoided. Worse, different administrators will have different opinions on what constitutes "low quality trolls". And as such, something that might be an issue one day might not be an issue later.

This was a major problem back on Ponychan, before the split. It's what made moderation feel much more like a popularity contest, than a just system. It's why so many users became agitated with said system and ultimately left, or eventually formed their own site.

If a solution is absolutely necessary to deal with supposed "trolls" [besides merely encouraging people to use the [-] function], it should be one with a clear definition. Something that can be universally understood. "No politics", for instance. While it might gut a major section of discussion, it at least applies a standard that does not cause people to fear a wrong step out of their control.

Sure, sure, for simple deletion anyway that's understandable. OP's gotta start on a more general-purpose base. Especially since starting with a set position is going to lower your practical use of the thread, once conversation dies out.
Just don't think that "What should be done to stop people from shithole nations with no employable skills from immigrating to the US?" would constitute that.,

If you want to continue this discussion, we can probably take it to /ef/.
I do feel like you're misrepresenting my position, though. Which is part of why all this genuinely comes as a bit of a surprise to me. Truth be told, I had originally thought the whole "/pol/ anon" referred to someone else, or was a bit of a meme, along the same line of calling someone a "/leftycuck/" on 8chan. Something that more gets thrown around at random.

That's a fairly large part of my issue with all this, to be quite honest. It seems to come from a lack of understanding. It's the type of thing you could likely pin on just about anyone, unfortunately. It does run right into the "witchhunt" type territory, as had been suggested prior.
I mean, it seems all you have to do is be angry enough to convince others that what you're saying is right, regardless of evidence or statements to the contrary.
Seems a dangerous position to advocate for banning people you decide are bad based, it would appear, on false information.
I'm not going to say it's a "slippery slope" per say, but it does set a bad precedent, and if nothing else, strikes me as a bad principle.

Filtering for wrong reasons is, of course, ultimately fine. That's up to the individual, after all, and isn't a particular removal of their ability to speak or anything like that. No different from blocking someone. But actively seeking to ban people over what is ultimately a difference of opinion isn't the sane, you ask me.
It's ultimately a difference of values, I suppose, so I doubt this'll change anything. But, still, I feel like it needed to be said.(USER WAS SENT TO THE MOON FOR THIS POST)

Best part of this type stuff is that the running definition for 'personal' property is property that is, more or less, in use.
Which suggests an unattended toothbrush may default to the public.
Now, maybe they mean "unattended for a significant period of time", but this is unspecified, so I'm going to assume that when Mike leaves his toothbrush unattended, Jeff gets to use it to brush his toenails.

Looking at this situation from a fan point of view, it's pretty difficult to say that keeping this news quiet is in our best interests.

Given that no one here works for Hasbro, we're not likely to hear from them. Given that we're not a news organization like DerpyNews or EqD, the same holds true. We're just a small community of fans. No one from the show is going to pop in here for an AMA ever again.

Lauren Faust has long since moved on to her new showrunning position on DC Superhero Girls. I doubt she even wants to think about her time on MLP or the aftermath of Season 1.

I'll wait until the mods clear it to post anything specific about the leaks. The discussions are enough for me for the time being.

Hey mods can you make it where I can use the settings on my iPhone so that I can turn on the mature tag?
