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›

Politics cyclic on /chat/? Macaroni !RevGiOKgRoCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11529

Like 1/3 of the catalog is just political threads that went some forgettable number of posts and died out, and it feels like several of them could have fit in as part of the same cyclic.

If nothing else, only one thread would need hidden instead of two or three new ones each day.

the irony is that this is what was happening on /oat/ before /chat/ became the place for politics. it really goes to show how absurd the amount of political threads people make is, and I do agree on the cyclic thing.

like, I don't think politics should be limited to just one or even two threads on /chat/, that wouldn't really be fair, but sometimes almost the entire front page is politics, and on top of that a lot of the time people make threads about the same political subjects before the original thread is anywhere near the bump limit.

maybe there could be something like a designated thread for each country's politics, or if that's not specific enough, then a designated thread for Trump stuff, and a designated thread for more state/local news stories, and a thread for non-American stuff etc.

but it's complicated, the word "politics" applies to a massive amount of topics, it's almost like saying "rock music", there's like a ton of subgenres.

I don't have a problem with politics threads at all, I just hide most of them, but it does get annoying when I'm scrolling through like a dozen of them.

/chat/ should just be /chan/, and used only for pol, porn and the outrageous stuff usually associated with a chan. /oat/ should be used for everything else - the default board, the catchall, the hangout, for all other discussion (except /pony/).

But then several serials would need to change their nature to fit in with /oat/'s "friendly" and "safe" tone.

There's only 1 serial actually using the mature tag, and neither of the other 2 serials on /chat/ ever have anything that goes outside of /oat/'s rules anyway. If anything, as Chewy mentioned in in one of them, they prefer an even more safe and friendly tone. Which is fine regardless, since a serial can more or less set the guidelines they want for their thread anyway.

A serial can be more lax than the board hosting it?

That's the thing, a serial should be able to have an appropriate place to be.

Not even most of the actual serial threads want to be cyclic. Because it's not about the conversations, it's about attention and presence on the board.
