/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›

TLDR: Me and Astra are stepping down as admins.
Mikie and TPWPAF are taking over as admins.

Longer version:
We could cite a whole lot of reasons like not enjoying the site, make a bunch of excuses like work taking up too much time, but the bottom line is that i cant bring myself to give a shit, and the site deserves someone who can.

This is the only Luna / Shiny pic i can find that isnt porn.

Thanks to Fen and Astra for dealing with this as long as you did. This site is pretty wild and takes a careful hand to maintain.

I trust Mikie and TPWPAF to do a great job given the experiences I've seen.

As long as there is a MLP, there will be a community.

regarding ##Mature content... Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12360[View]

back in the days of MLPchan, iirc, you could post NSFW/Mature images in a NON-mature-tagged thread IF you spoilered it (on boards with mature threads allowed of course, not on boards like /oat/ or /pony/)

any chance we could return to this? why was the rule changed anyways?

There's been many concerns about the state of both /chat/ and /oat/, particularly in regards to political topics and their place on the site, as well as concerns about the status of the discord server.
This thread will be used to discuss and decide a solution to those concerns, along with clarifying the distinction between /chat/ and /oat/.

These issues don't feel totally resolved, to say the least.
/oat/ is mostly clean now, yet /chat/ still sometimes feels like it's just the dump for the couple threads that still happen.
Suggestions have been made, yet little has happened outside of Mikie's decisions.

I don't mind if /chat/ is going to be the new /pol/. I just want to know what's what.

Using the Ponychan Development Tools tense!q6YrzPVCcsCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11962[View]

The ponychan development server utilizes a workflow built around Vagrant and VirtualBox. This provides an OS-agnostic development environment where one can safely test software deployments on their local machine before pushing it to the live server.

My instructions assume you're using Windows, but outside of the steps for opening the command line the instructions are the same.

Requirements

Install the following tools on your OS:

Virtualbox -- Used to execute a virtual OS installation.

Vagrant -- A script-friendly toolchain used to provision a virtual machine (i.e. VirtualBox)

git -- A revision management tool.

Dev posting again, as there seems to be more interest than I expected in just coding in Windows. Since many people, including myself seem to be ignoring my warning, I'll elaborate on how you might set up your VM on a Windows platform.

I would suggest that you get a good package manager, preferably chocolatey. I don't know of any other package managers that are stable, other than the one that ships with Powershell on Windows 10.

Install a good terminal. I recommend either Cmder or ConEmu. As long as it's not the default Windows terminal (the one used for cmd.exe), then you're fine. You might also want to consider running your terminal as administrator by default because you'll almost always will need it.

There's also a special way you have to get vagrant to communicate with Virtualbox, and to do that, you need to install Git, configured so that ssh.exe is exposed in the path variable. You can do this via chocolatey by running the command:
choco install git --params "/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath"

Then you'd cd to the directory you want to download the source code and clone the repo with:
git clone [email protected]:ponychan/ponychan-tinyboard.git

Then install the dependencies:
choco install virtualbox vagrant

Cmder actually doesn't work at all with vagrant
commands to vagrant just seem to be ignored
at least on my setup.

So this setup doesn't compile js then?

Also it's worth noting under Windows 10 you have a built-in package manager which supports chocolatey repos, not sure about install options though

Usable through powershell, list of commands under
Get-Command -Module PackageManagement

>commands to vagrant just seem to be ignored
What happens when you just enter `vagrant`?

>compile js

These are just the first steps to setting up your machine. Normally on Linux you wouldn't have a problem just following through with what the readme says, but on Windows, one of the dependencies in node would complain because it can't find a bunch of things outside of node, such as Python and a C++ compiler.

I just took a second look at the module list and it looks like that dependency isn't there anymore. If the package 'node-gyp' has been phased out by its dependents, this is major progress. Maybe Windows users no longer need special treatment on these steps.

Last year, I quit developing on ponychan. I didn't make a public announcement, but I explained my reasons to the mod team were due to both school and work tying me up. Although I later admitted that the internal drama with Macil also didn't help.

Circumstances have changed since then. One of the admins asked for me to come back and I decided to take him up on that offer. So, apologies for never making that resignation announcement. Have a reinstatement thread to make up for it.

I'm an anon poster, but most people call me shutterbox.

tl;dr - I'm rejoining the site's staff.

That's the nice thing about *chan-style imageboards. Since the content is ephemeral and the search features are all implemented as javascript front-ends, the server requirements can go pretty low. I think the big chunk of CPU usage just goes to rendering image thumbnails.

Also, we don't use Cloudflare's premiums anymore, I don't think.
