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›

New themes !!Babs Seed ## ModCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13193

Science has finally gone too far. I managed to keep my promise from two years ago and finally have the themes from pre-merger Ponychan that never made it through the transition to Tinyboard on top of some major refactorings of the current themes. This update is going to be implemented on the site sometime this weekend. You'll see seven returning premerger themes, including the ones Fyik helped refactor.

I spent the last week reviewing and cherry-picking from commits between the merger and present, so that the themes are compatible with the site at its current state. Yet, between that timespan, many of you have gotten used to the themes as they are published now. I rolled back a bunch of the design changes so that the default Colgate theme appears almost completely identical to this one, but one of my concerns that warrants this thread's existence is that users might perceive the modified themes as 'broken', due to them being generally untouched since the merger.

Nonetheless, if you find anything legitimately broken in this update or if you're not sure, feel free to make a post in this thread. The long-term benefit of this update is that it drops almost all of the unnecessary tag selectors, making it easier for us to work the original Tinyboard/MLPchan site templates into modernized HTML5 pages.

New themes:
Big Mac
Changeling (Old Ponychan Chrysalis Theme)
Cheerilee
Crystal Rarity
Daring Do
Discord
Vinyl Scratch

Nearly all of the themes have at least one change, but these themes are getting the most noticable ones:

Twilight Tackle - Font size will be tuned down to match other themes
Rainbow Dash - Reduced font size to match other themes
Timelord - sans-serif font face; fix oversize button issue
Octavia - sans-serif font face; fix oversized buttons; modified home page
Trixie - Deep blue background will become sky blue; Oversized post form headers fixed; sans-serif font face
Aloe & Lotus - table headers fixed
Gilda - replacing the settings headers' font faces
Royal Guard - completely rewritten
Scootaloo - sans-serif font face; reduce the size of the board headers
Shadowbolts - sans-serif font face to match the 'Molengo' headers. New buttons.

The updated Rainbow Dash will have a shade of blue similar to the old one. It's been a while since I touched the themes and made that adjustment way back after we merged and completely forgot about it.

!ScyphTlOY6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13197

It's the background color and the post color, btw.

Really? You liked the old reply box shades more? I can adjust them back, but I'm just surprised.

By "reply box", you mean the replies to the thread that are actually there, right? Not the box where you type replies?

If the former, then now that I think about it, I guess it could go either way. If the latter, then I actually don't know what you mean.

!!Babs SeedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13200

>>13199
Yes, I was referring to the thread replies. I think the post form itself is pretty identical to the old one besides the dimensions of the text boxes themselves.

The theme updates are finally implemented to the site. In addition to this update, the staff and I talked over moving the default theme back to Cloudsdale like it was on MLPchan, due to the fact that it's more visually appealing to visitors and would leave a better impression.

So, Cloudsdale is our new default theme.

But seriously check out that Crystal Rarity theme.

Rainbow Dash is acceptable now. The background is still a bit too light through.

Anyway, I'll just repeat that I think the background on Rainbow Dash could stand to be darker. But I'm liking it better than Cloudsdale anyway.

You probably have to have a line of backlinks that overflow to the end of the reply container and then it probably floats to the next row like what Starshine screencapped.

>>13226
All of the selectors got completely refactored in style.css for more efficient querying.

Starshine!Laura/wmXMCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13228

>>13227
Selectors like the file picker?

That would explain the buttons, but why did the padding and text wrapping get hit?


Nevermind, selectors like database selectors, right?

No, I refactored all of the CSS selectors. I reviewed what I believed to be all of the themes frivolously before implementing to the live site but the branch in the repository of themes that got reviewed did not include the new ones -- both Midnight and Zecora, so they probably both got hit.

Perhaps it shouldn't be the exact color of the vintage theme. That color itself is a little muted. But something a little darker than the current color would be nice.

I am very very sorry my dudes but I have 2 more requests regarding Rainbow Dash...

1. Dashy should follow my scrolling.

2. The colored bars above the board links at the top bar...the rainbow colors are done by groups. But now we have no groups with more than two boards, so the only colors used are yellow and orange. Make it one rainbow for the whole board list.

Okay I finally got the text overflow problems fixed, I believe. It was this post >>13212 right here that made me realize that the problems were actually occurring across all stylesheets because Shuckle's text caused his post to overflow over the page.

Now to fix the buttons on the Midnight theme.

>>13242
Most of the themes actually don't have fixed watermarks anymore. Reason being that they often hurt the readability of text on the page. Although I see the old site's Rainbow Dash theme avoids that problem by putting an overlay on top of the page body.

For yours, it did. I'm assuming you're using Twilight Tackle, is that right? That theme's font size wasn't meant to be made as large as it was when it was originally ported to Tinyboard. If you want me to adjust it, I'm fine with that.

And the padding, please. The padding is actually more important to me than the buttons and header font, not that those aren't also important.

Actually, the padding is a pretty quick fix, if you don't mind editing the file one last time. It's just:

padding-top: 0;
