/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›

Astra, here's the fucking call out you lousy shit. ☲ Prince Ember Storm!SNowbAlLfoCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 10317

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.

You're the admin of the Ponychan website. Start acting like it instead of using Discord.

There is a thread, it's stickied at the top of /site/.

It doesnt mention the discord because like somebody mentioned in your other thread, there's no point.
Somebody else would just re-make it and things would continue after about 5 minutes.

Since it's apparent that the Discord isn't going anywhere, I'd like your ideas on the form of it. What should the channels be and what should be their descriptions?

I had Fen make a thread at my request, it's right there at the top of the board concerning issues I wanted to have discussed. I just haven't the time to respond right not to everything.

So lemme get this straight.

Not only did you assure me that you would make a thread, you assured me that it would be a discussion on the Discord. The thread you had Fen make fulfills neither of these parametres you set out a week ago.

Now, I am aware that who made the thread is irrelevant, and that Fen has and will always be a much better admin than you anyways, but come on. If you're going to make a promise, KEEP IT. Don't delegate it to your mods, DO IT YOURSELF.

In any case, Fen's thread still doesn't mention the Discord that really shouldn't have been made in the first place, and that gross mistake lies on your shoulders, as much as you might consider the Discord a jolly good time to flirt with people at random.

The Discord is literally just the replacement for The Skype group, which was around forever. Stop trying to word your petty years-old Horsechan grudges like they're arguments, nobody is ever going to take you seriously when every other post is "delete discord fuck astro xd"

show me 2 consecutive conversations involving astra that arent *pets u* *puts u in his lap*. ill wait. even his rare user posts on the site, in story serial, are just waving his dick at starshine et al usually.

In an honest assessment of his activity since being admin, it's just not good.
Rain bro as a mod, don't see as a good decision.
Eris as a chat mod, I wasn't even the first to say wow that's a terrible decision.
Missing the site's anniversary, I mean c'mon.
Poor communication during /gala/ dissolution.
Not executing the oat-chat split nearly well enough, to the point there's still gotta be /site/ stickies to discuss it.
Not even making said sticky yourself,
Not making this thread you promised to a user to discuss a separate issue and instead pawning that off on Fen as well.
Being so absent (from the site) that you're not seen literally at all outside of exactly 2 posts a day in your chosen serial, giving credence to Ember's point.
>>10186
Apparently the curse has already hit. Also it's a real shame that there wasn't, like, some kind of staff or something all this time that could have or should have done more; or in some people's cases, literally anything at all, ever, in their entire history as staff, while having time to snipe from the sidelines instead somehow and just enjoy their time holding a shiny tag at one or more places while bitching about what other people have done.

Meanwhile, half owner Macil, who apparently is finally ok with his 'admin' (not the one we agreed to) doing things, apparently will never have anything to say about any non-tech issue ever again, and so none of us have any choice or input on that matter.

Literally my favorite topic on this site right now.

>Eris as a chat mod
That literally only happened because he threw a hissy fit about Shuckle becoming a mod.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 10655

>>10654
Which is hilarious, because Eris has done no modding of the chat at all, and Shuckle has done all of it. It's been raised with multiple staff and they don't like it any more than you or I do, but what can anyone do. 'Leadership' here isn't in the business of admitting, let alone rectifying their mistakes.
