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, Mikie !pinkie78OsCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12438Locked

Since the bug thread isn't the place to continue this discussion...

You wanna maybe clarify what you mean about "things have changed"?

>bully Mikie into firing Astra with no real discussion or consulting with other staff members
>get mad when it doesn't go over well and he has to take back a move
Trying to backseat admin is
1) a very shady way to go about effecting change on the site
2) not likely to lead to anything but trouble as various cliques wrestle over control of the site
3) just another iteration of the Skype and /meta/ drama that plagued Ponychan in days gone by

If you have a problem with the way the site is handled, there are much better ways to go about voicing your concerns than being passive-agressive in public and outright aggressive in private. Stop trying to be Rasputin.

Not necessarily directed at OP, but you know who you are.

I sure as hell would like to know who that is directed at.

Just what the fuck is going on here, guys?

I'm admittedly a little confused here myself, the situation from what I saw seemed to be pretty simple.

Astra got demodded by Mikie and there was a fuck up in that he didn't actually *talk* to Astra or other staff members

but apparently there's some sort of third party pressuring shit onto Mikie?

I mean I'm not going to lie and say I haven't been aggressive towards certain things in private myself, but now I'm a little concerned about just who's putting this shit ontop of Mikie.

someone trying to backseat admin is DEFINITELY a pretty big fucking concern in my book.

Starshine!Laura/wmXMCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12444

>>12441
>>12442
There is indeed a third party pressuring shit onto Mikie, someone who happens to have a massive and longstanding hateboner for Astra. I don't really have any strong feelings on the decision itself, but it seems this person had been harassing Mikie on Discord to try and force his hand for a while, and more recently harassing him for backing down on the hasty decision.

>>12443

I don't know OP's level of involvement in this particular issue. As far as I know, they're just a bystander who happens to have some concerns about Astra's activity as a mod.

What I do know is that someone who has a bit of a track record for pretending to be people's friend only to turn on them if they aren't wholly supportive of their grand vision for Ponychan has been unleashing a salt megalith on Mikie re: Astra, and possibly other aspects of how the site is run.

well fanfuckingtastic. I mean that said there's a lot of people who have massive hateboners for Astra so I can't say I'm surprised, and I mean, I'd personally call into question why Astra was still an RP move myself too but...

it's still, fucking prickish and childish to go after the admins and mods of the site to pressure them into carrying out their own personal vendettas.

and I can't put my finger on it but delusions of grandeur for Pchan feels familiar for some reason

Either way, oi, just hope things turn out okay for Mikie, nobody needs that kinda ass on their...well, ass.


and yeah I have a reply to that other guy too only to notice he deleted before I posted it.

So I can understand why we haven't removed a worthless so and so from the modlist due to a lack of communication, but are we going to now discuss a plan to do so?

If you have a case for any changes in the staff then your free to make it of course. But any such changes wont be made without discussion among staff and the boards that moderator is responsible, if applicable.

I think the issue here stems from when /rp/ got wiped out by spam and we had to add another mod. >>11748
12 days after this, Astra and Fen both stepped down as admin. >>11856
Admin was then handed off to whoever would take it, including Mikie, who had joined the staff about 4 months prior. (This doesn't seem like something a person would do if they were still invested.)

What I heard is that Fenolio had to deal with a whole big thing about /rp/ being wiped and some people wanted Astra fired and maybe someone said it was going to happen? Not sure though, I wasn't involved in that. Would need Fen to confirm? Perhaps some people from /rp/ want to step forward about this?

Starshine is right, people shouldn't backseat admin. I wouldn't know anything about actual activity stats since I can't see them, but for what it's worth I'll say I always found it extremely irritating when people would just sit on staff and not do anything to help. Really hope Astra's not pulling one of those but after what happened, I'm sad to say I wouldn't be surprised.

Astra was sitting on staff doing nothing when he was an admin.

I didnt hand things to whoever would take it, i explictly asked mikie, partly because he was the most active mod by a far margin.
Will elaborate more when i get off work.

I think I have an idea who you mean, but I won't name names just in case I'm wrong.

Anyway, up until this point I knew Astra was still a mod for some reason, I just didn't know of where and why. So when he posted on here recently, I just asked him.

And when he said he was still an /rp/ mod, I more or less questioned why, given we have Dom as a mod too. He never answered me on that, funnily enough.

Then Mikie spoke up and I asked the same question, and pointed out that Astra flat out isn't around enough to properly act as a mod. He agreed and decided Astra needed to go.

Had I known that someone else was giving him shit for it behind the scenes I probably wouldn't have said anything.

>>12445

Though in the interest of being clear, I've also had my bad personal history with Astra before now.

I won't go into explicit details, but either way, if he really isn't doing anything for the site anymore, it makes no logical sense for him to have a mod position. Especially since the board he's supposedly monitoring is already handled by another user who is more active than him.

>>12453
>>12454

It has more to do with what Ember said, yeah.

For a guy who supposedly cared a lot about the site, he rarely made any public decisions himself, or spoke about issues himself. He'd usually hand it off to Fen to handle, or that was how it seemed. It quickly gave the impression that he was just sitting around doing nothing while Fen handled all the busy work.

And if this was untrue in any sense, again, it didn't look that way. And that's no one's fault but his for not having enough of a public presence.

describing this as "harassment" is really fucking disingenuous

grimesCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12458

instead of making up bullshit about a boogeyman whose biggest crime is apparently sending thinking emojis, why don't we use this thread to talk about why an easy no-brainer decision seems to be getting prevented from being made by the admin

what bullshit is going on behind -those- scenes that you're not talking about lmfao

grimesCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 12459

also talking some bullshit about "this is just like the old skype drama!" is pretty bold while there's literally 0 information being given to anybody about why astra is still a fucking mod

Don't worry. It's just unfortunate coincidence that these things are taking place.

>>12458
>the admin
You mean, one of the two admins? Neither of whom makes major decisions like this on a whim because, you know, that's been one of the biggest mistakes of past admins?

>>12459
>why astra is still a fucking mod
Because he wasn't fired, prior to this little fiasco? Why is this discussion being framed as "why haven't we done what I want done yet"?

>>12460
You did seem pretty hesitant about it, and pretty frustrated with a certain someone's insistence and the way he treats you in general.
