/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 like uhhhhhhhhh

How do some people expect other... people to want to post on this site when it is basically dead... all the time?

Not entirely sure if this is a /site/ appropriate thread, so if it isn't feel free to delete it.

The site is slowly dying, and this is old news.

Jade!/lOsHARLEYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11297

Sooo... no real answers. Alrighty then.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11298

I'm not sure it's a question that can be meaningfully answered. It used to be more popular, people have established connections here, they like the imageboard format and prefer the culture this site built on it etc. There isn't some greater goal.

So basically what Mac said. The site is just dying.

That kinda sucks.

Well, regardless, I guess I'll make an effort to post in threads, even though it seems like it's dead every time I come here.

It's (slightly) more active/alive than before the merge. Now that /anon/ has become /chat/, it is far more active than /anon/ was. /oat/ is definitely faster too, I remember back on MLPChan certain threads would sit on the front page for days without getting new posts. That doesn't really happen now, at least not as much. Threads tend to get knocked off the front page a lot quicker because people are actually posting. Threads can get dozens of replies in one night as opposed to like, five a day max back before the merge.

There was talk a few months ago of "rebranding" the site because ponies aren't that big anymore, but I don't know what ever happened with that. I think the thing is, we have a consistent userbase but we rarely attract new users who aren't accustomed to that userbase. I think it's hard for new users to be able to fit in.

But of course, the place can't get more alive if you don't post.

!AppLeJAcK.Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11304

"becoming more concentrated."

yeah, eventually it'll just be a handful of friends talking about their days on one board or one thread, but that's most any platform when the original attraction isn't massively popular. as long as the remainder controls its own destiny, and is managed by people who still come here, still care, and still want to maintain the 6+ year legacy, it serves its purpose. its purpose being the remaining people.

at this point its not so much 'wont be new people' as 'how do we entice people who dont post anymore/much anymore to engage again'.

anyway, a site cant last forever, but a collective can, and the longer we can keep this place alive, the more connections can keep being made. ive talked to people i dont usually talk to, engaged more people offsite than i usually do, made more friends. my contacts list might not be as big as in the heyday, but its more people i would regularly want to talk to, and try to do so now, on discord/steam/etc. i gain more connections/deepen existing ones with time. even as one door closes, others open, and my personal collective feels great.

yeah, maybe at some point there'll be unification again, with other sites. i dunno about that. id try. but anyways, all we can do is keep on keepin' on.

We got a new person recently.

>people talking about ponies not being popular anymore
Yeah, on Ponychan. Other pony sites are still flourishing. Your current userbase is simply too veteran and disillusioned-- Ponychan is a poor sample of the MLP community as it stands.

Because ponychan, inexplicably, is less autistic.

Don't ask me how.

But that's also why we like/prefer it

>Basically dead.
*Dying.
If you want to see "dead" look at the site during the middle of the day european time, everyone is either at work or asleep.

I'm vaguely aware of it.

This place has almost always been more about the people than the ponies.

Failing to recognize that and adapt accordingly was the great failure of original management.

There is always hope.

I do, which reminds me that I need to sit down and rewatch S6 because I didn't manage to pay enough attention to it.

Who?

>>11308
When I posted this thread nobody had posted for like an hour or more.

>>11306
I didn't say anything about MLP itself.

>>11314
I don't entirely agree with that but... yeah. This place, at it's liveliest, is great. But when it's not... it's not.

What happened to Heavy Mole? Last I heard CMS said he was taking a computer break but its been an awfully long break now.

I have no clue. Last I saw him was in the Discord server, but that was a while ago because I left for a month or so. I'm back now but I haven't seen him and I've not asked around.
