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›

Macil has decided to step down as administrator and server owner due to personal differences with site staff, server hosting will change but i will try to keep disruptions to a minimum. More details will be posted as they come available.

I too think that Fen should be offered his administration abilities back. He's one of the few people on this site that actually WANT to do things to set it on the proper track. We can find another coder easily.

Well I agree Fen deserves a chance to make good on the merger promises, though at this point he may be reluctant to pick up the mantle again.

But Pchan has been in a state of crisis for most of it's life now, I think in a large part because it's so dependent on a single person, whether that's orange or fen or Macil. If it's possible I'd like to break the curse, set up a trust for the domain and Put Thon, Fen, Astra, Mellow and myself as trustees. That way even if admins go rouge or inactive it's not a threat to the future of the site.

A trust was what I should have done in the first place, and what I suggested last time I offered to buy it form Macil.

I had figured this was coming for awhile, and have some measure of an idea of what we can do, if it's possible. We shouldn't delay, and not keep anything in limbo.
Whatever I can/need to do I will do it.

There's also the Trust idea Flutts put forward, too. That way the power is divided amongst a larger group of people and therefore there's a much lower chance of this happening again.

Astra's currently driving and keeps autistically checking this thread instead of keeping his eyes on the road, so i decided to post here saying he'll respond to things when he doesnt have a reasonably high chance of crashing or when he gets home, whichever comes first.
Handover from mac hasnt happened yet, please contain the "Who is going to be next" questions / suggestions / demands / pleads / bribes until he's actually left the office.

EITHER STOP AND POST OR KEEP DRIVING YOU FAGGOT.

I'm on a ten hour drive home right now, so I only have access to the site intermittently. back later.

There's no vote for one thing, Fen is half-owner, at minimum, period. We can the do trustee idea thing where a small number of the dedicated staff collectively own it, afterwards.

If you're referring to my mention of "voting" I meant that the trustees would be the ones doing the majority vote to agree on things in the event we have a trust setup.

Astra has apparently got his car stuck on a treadmill and everyone else failed their public speaking class so here's an update from me again.

Astra currently owns the domain name, server ownership is going to take a few days to transfer due to having to submit a support ticket, probably because his is a new account? I dont have a clue, either way there should be no difference in terms of site usage while happening and after it's happened.

That's it, for some reason this is hard to put into words, it's like half the people i know have an allergic reaction to proper communication.

Communicare intolerance or something more scientific sounding.

>>10935

Reasons duly noted but be aware that manley and zamoonda also fufill the same criteria you've laid out so you have some strong competition.
Personally speaking my money's on zim zam simply due to prior experience but your wall proposal might be enough to push you ahead, they're quite popular these days.

"Some of the trust hasn't voted yet, plz allow 20 more days."

"I'm on the road right now and will not be able to vote."

"I want to talk to another member before I vote and am waiting to hear back from him."

"I hope to have more time to put towards voting in February."

"Of the nine members of the Trust, only three have voted. Three more didn't know there was a vote going on, no one's heard from one in over a year, and two weren't even away they were part of the Trust."

I had to be awake to take my roommates to work, and I'm going back to sleep after this post so I'll make it now.

I'm gonna be doing some updates to staff standards, and a larger post later today or tomorrow addressing some concerns and issues from the past few weeks, just asking you guys to have a little bit of patience with that coming up soon while things are in flux and me and Macil get the server ownership transferred over to me.

>>11015
I'll answer this while I'm here and make the announcement to, I'm going to include this in my later post as well.

A while back I promised some changes to the appeal system to hopefully solve some of the problems we've been having with inconsistent moderation. Here is what !!Shining Armor, !!Fluttershy and I have hashed out. Which the rest of the staff agreed on upon review of it.

User appeals for bans exceeding 24 hours will now be handled by committee of two moderators chosen by first availability, with the admin acting as tiebreaker.

Any moderator may also call for a sua sponte review of any moderator action, again handled by two moderators and an admin.

In both appeals and reviews the moderator who took the action will be consulted but not be placed on the committee.

So of their own accord.
