/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›

We could literally merge /chat/ and /ef/ into /chef/

One of the boards is redundant and needs to be nuked.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12189

I've told Mikie I think it's a good idea, and also think he's right to wait a little bit just to let people settle in. As people get used to it then when they're ready we could probably put them together without too much trouble. :)

Macaroni !RevGiOKgRoCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12190

plz no
At least /chat/ can be somewhat serious in both content and discussion.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12191

>>12190

yeah this is kind of how I feel

Macaroni !RevGiOKgRoCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12193

Also, where's the front page description of /ef/?

not like it's exactly hard to add
if you come up with a description just let me know

generally "any" kind of changes to the front page is a minute of work, so i don't really mind

Please keep politics out of oat. thank you...

spaceCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12201

Memes aside the boards are pretty different right now, and this might not even last that long. That'd be like merging /oat/ and /chat/ (again)

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12218

i dont think /ef/ wants all of /chat/'s polshit.

we should change /chat/ to /dis/ and keep ALL polshit/super srs discussion topics there.

then we'd have
>pony for pony
>oat for hugbox
>ef for nonhugbox
>dis for politics
>rp for roleplay
>fan for... whatever they still do

boom problems solved.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12220

>>12219
Well there's only 2 serials on /chat/ left.

Space and Story.

I imagine Space would be best at /oat/, and then Story would go to /ef/ as it's a Mature tagged thread. All the rest of /chat/'s content would fit at /ef/ or /oat/.

Granted there's like, Purple Pony's Pregnancy or whatever but that's only still on the board because of bumping. I think there was a fart thread? I dunno, I hid it and I doubt it's still around/active.

>and keep ALL polshit/super srs discussion topics there.

isn't that what we already do though...?

also there is more than just politics on /chat/, what about the music thread, the image exchange threads, the general blogging thread, and of course the porn? I feel like that wouldn't belong on /ef/.

also I don't like the idea of /oat/ having no serious discussion at all, I thought the point was just to keep politics and religion off of /oat/.

>Seems to mainly one anon making the political garbage there.


this is literally what I have been suspecting for months

I obviously make political threads occasionally but only when I feel like there is something actually interesting/worth discussing

there is some anon who constantly just tries to get a rise out of people, its so obvious. unless he is contributing to other areas of the site in some way even remotely meaningful, I would say you may as well ban him or at least put a block on him making threads.

the porn would be fine on ef.

all the rest would be fine on oat, honestly.

/oat/ is too fast and SFW.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12229

>>12228
What specifically would it be too fast for?

Try to think of what individual threads would be on each of these 3 boards.

>>12229
Really, it's a difference in how the boards treat their threads.
On /chat/, threads can be built up to tens or hundreds of meaningful posts that will last for months, whereas /oat/ is far more quick and disposable in it's content, to say nothing of it's SFW and apolitical nature.

And honestly, do you see the state of /oat/? You think anything is getting drowned out? There's threads on the front page with their last post over 24 hours ago

idk in this case I feel like theres no reason not to adhere to the idea of "dont try to fix what isnt broken". nothing is wrong with keeping the three boards right now imo. I like how it is.

Guess we never should have bothered with all the effort and discussion to remove redundant boards. We might as well have kept /gala/ and /merch/.

which website is that on?

fast relative to slow is still slow in this case

regardless of my last post I'm glad we got /ef/ back.... if only because it was one more step in the grand reunification!

MLPchan and Efchan down, Moonychan to go!

>adding moony as an admin
>adding a new hugbox-y board next to /ef/

Sounds controversial.

RiskCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12263

>>12261
Why should Moony be admin? AJ isn't. What's wrong with another board? We obviously are not concerned by that.

Macaroni !RevGiOKgRoCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12264

>>12263
Some whispers through the grapevine said that Moony had a thing for desiring power, and I can imagine the two communities having some fun times with such proximity.

pls no

Mikie has enough sense not to do that...r-right?

Risky !RISkQqf4EMCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12271

>>12266
no drama at all my friend. we will simply absorb moonychan and all will be well.

PSST, people could prob all be satisfied in terms of their board preferences if we had an /all/

that way i could just see all of /oat/, /chat/ and /ef/ at the same time, hide any threads i didnt care for and not miss anything plus feel faster.

win win for everyone, tbh.

/all/ is doable.

that would be sweet, thanks. i was begging/pleading/cajoling/etc etc for macil to do this for 2+ fuckin' years, so if you pull it off even in months it'll be nice, thanks.

Figured I'd show my support for this idea.
Ponychan's old /all/ let you select which boards to aggregate, it was arguably one of the best features provided by the pre-merge site.

I've been out of the loop for a while. What is the /ef/ culture, again? How is it different from /chat/?

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12342

>>12341

Oh, okay, that makes sense. Thank you. I do like the idea of a free board that's not buried in pol-spam, though I guess it wouldn't exactly be a free board, then...

Macaroni !RevGiOKgRoCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12407

How has /all/ been coming along?
