/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 this is just my two cents, but I think that now that we're basically a half year out from the election, and cancerous political chatter seems to have calmed down on /chat/, it might be worth reexamining the "all politics get quarantined to /chat/ regardless of context" rule. I don't really think politics on /oat/ is that bad of a thing, it was just that the election was super cancerous, and the threads weren't being contained (i.e. OPs were made for ever individual topic) very well. Plus we could contain politics to a cyclic general. Just throwing it out there.

if it werent for needing a place for nsfw i wouldnt even advocate there still being 2 general boards at all. but maybe just rename /chat/ to /ef/ lmao

IMO politics should only be "quarantined" to /chat/ if the thread subject is specifically about politics.

If there is a regular thread on /oat/ and the discussion gets political, it shouldn't necessarily be moved--HOWEVER, if someone intentionally tries to derail /oat/ threads with political crap that has no relation to the original subject or what people were discussing, something should be done about that.

Politics were a problem before election year, so I don't know if we should try to revert things just because election year is over. Plus, does anyone really have a problem with /chat/ being the designated politics board? It seems like it works pretty well, I mean why fix what isn't broken?

I feel like we have a good balance going right now and it would be a shame to fuck it all up for the sake of experimenting again.

this. going back and forth is dumb, especially since most people seem cool with it.

i think having a hard line in the sand on this is good for the site. hell, it was one of the few site decisions that wasn't endlessly bickered about or had ad hominems tossed about like confetti; that's fucking rare nowadays.

also we had a cyclic on /oat/ about politics, it died a quiet death. probably because ponychan likes shitposting about politics more than actually discussing politics.

The rule needs to be kept. Damnable Yanks still won't shut up about the bullshit.

well that too, but inconsistent modding has been a ponychan staple for a while.

You know what's a staple? Good popular ideas getting set up to fail so these faggots can act smug and jerk off about how only they can come up with good ideas despite coming up with zero good ideas.

This, we didnt exactly decide to quarrentine all political discussion one day out of the blue, it was pretty much the final solution, short of banning it entirely.
The main problem is most people here cant seem to recognise a stereotypical shitpost and respond to people posting /pol/shit seriously instead of just ignoring it or reporting it if its over the line.
Most legitimate /pol/tards stay in poltical forums outside of raids, most everywhere else they crop up it's just shitposters because of how easy it is to trigger people with "Hitler did nothing wrong." and such, if the site as a whole still cared about the show we'd be inundated in glimglam shitposts instead like /mlp/ is.

I don't have a Starlight Glimmer folder to shitpost with, and I probably wouldn't use it to shitpost.

I don't have a Glimmer folder cuz I don't want one.

I wouldn't use it to shitpost because I don't tend to intentionally shitpost.
