/site/ - Site Issues

The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions.

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.


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›

Can we instead have ID that applies to boards, not just threads?
This current system is lackluster when it comes to poor discourse between multiple threads.

I want to be able to filter anons by an ID across the whole board. If staff aren't going to kick out the /pol/ shitbags they have to at least make it possible for people to remove them from their experience themselves.

Unless I misread what Babs Seed wrote on the subject, this may be a limit of the version of the image board software in use. This request was made during the /ef/ renaming thread.

Since Mikie locked the Friday Night Ponychan Inquisition thread here in /site/ last night, I'll add my two cents on that thread here.

I understand the resentment that many long time users here have towards some posters who abused the Anon function. I'm shocked that no one has asked for anons to be eliminated by a broad brush via killing that function in the image board software.

The point is that everyone here is on that slippery slope. The question now is how many posters will be shoved out of the board should this trend continue. Do we want to turn Ponychan into Moonychan 2.0 at the end of the day?

I made a New Year's Eve resolution to cut way back on shitposting everywhere I go. I like the people who run this board and don't want to be the source of stress for their sake.

>slippery slope
please. the user you're referencing is basically as bad as manley on /chat/\/ef/, it's not some witch hunt or mass censoring. he's making the board unbearable and it's hard to filter his horseshit, this isn't just a politically motivated thing on our end, but rather a reaction to his crypto-fascist bullshit(and no i'm not just knee-jerk calling him that, all of his posts reek of crypto-fascist bullshit if you've actually gone in and read in-depth about crypto-fascist tactics).

i like how you're trying to make him out as an innocent party tho, good on you for also using the old-school "we're turning ponychan into le hugbox, gb2 moonychan" bullshit. it's a nice way to get all the people who hate his site on your side when you know goddamn well that this isn't that at all.

>when as an urban man you naturally have a wicked and immoral character so you decide to frustrate the efforts of innocent Nazis just trying to gain power and install their program on the american public so its up to the libertarians to ally with the Nazis to defend freedom and defeat your evil policy once and for all

I'm not even a fascist, you daft cunt.
I just don't think it's okay to call for the assault and oppression of people just because you don't like their political leanings. Especially when you can't even keep that to just those guys, you've got to sit around pretending everyone right of Stalin is a fucking nazi.

You can't handle someone who doesn't accept your politics, and so you're calling for censorship of that person. Seems damn well straight forward to me.

You can frustrate the efforts of nazis without advocating the removal of basic universal rights, mate.
Assault on people who've not done shit is not okay.

Come the fuck on guys, can you not act like bratty, whiny children for more than five minutes? Stop derailing threads, especially on /site/.

If you want to continue this discussion, we can probably take it to /ef/.
I do feel like you're misrepresenting my position, though. Which is part of why all this genuinely comes as a bit of a surprise to me. Truth be told, I had originally thought the whole "/pol/ anon" referred to someone else, or was a bit of a meme, along the same line of calling someone a "/leftycuck/" on 8chan. Something that more gets thrown around at random.

That's a fairly large part of my issue with all this, to be quite honest. It seems to come from a lack of understanding. It's the type of thing you could likely pin on just about anyone, unfortunately. It does run right into the "witchhunt" type territory, as had been suggested prior.
I mean, it seems all you have to do is be angry enough to convince others that what you're saying is right, regardless of evidence or statements to the contrary.
Seems a dangerous position to advocate for banning people you decide are bad based, it would appear, on false information.
I'm not going to say it's a "slippery slope" per say, but it does set a bad precedent, and if nothing else, strikes me as a bad principle.

Filtering for wrong reasons is, of course, ultimately fine. That's up to the individual, after all, and isn't a particular removal of their ability to speak or anything like that. No different from blocking someone. But actively seeking to ban people over what is ultimately a difference of opinion isn't the sane, you ask me.
It's ultimately a difference of values, I suppose, so I doubt this'll change anything. But, still, I feel like it needed to be said.(USER WAS SENT TO THE MOON FOR THIS POST)
