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›

>Depictions of visible genitals or female nipples are prohibited. This includes those visible through clothing (e.g. bulges and/or camel-toe).

I'm not asking for anyone to be banned over it right now or anything because they weren't breaking the rules before it was a rule but seriously why are butts allowed but other forms of nudity aren't? It makes very little sense to me and I think it should be included in the rules.

Buttcheeks aren't as offensive as genitalia or a visible anus when used in the context of a joke.

That seems kind of subjective though? I mean I'll admit butts are used more for jokes and even appear in cartoons much more but to me it seems like about the same thing.

It's just the status-quo.

I, regrettingly, watched Thor Ragnarok the other night, a super hero movie that a lot of kids probably went to see in theaters.
It had a full on scene showing the Hulk's bare ass. Apparently Disney thinks that's okay for kids.

I get what you mean, but generally speaking, buttcheeks aren't on the same level of nudity.

Ya that is stupid. Plus no one wants to see that without a reason anyway.

Plus like I'm not just talking about jokes here anyway, just in general. I'm not really offended by nudity either I just personally find it inconsistent.

Because they don't show bits, bruh.
Also, most ponies are naked.
You'd end up making a rule that banned in-show pictures.

No idea. I think this rule was only added a year ago to brighten the boundary of permitted content in an effort of more consistent rule enforcement, and I think the rule was paraphrased from one of the site rules from Ponychan before the merger.

I never liked this rule on the old website because it takes no account to post context but insists there's a tolerance level on how big a bump on a shirt or a bulge can be, as if those are our main metrics that can gauge an image as suggestive. And what's even dumber is, any remaining new posters that find their way here have to read up on the rule telling you that you can't post some guy's bulge in his pants before posting.

Here's another website's rule-phrasing that I believe comes off nicer:
Please keep in mind that minors will be posting, and tailor your posts accordingly

Does that not explain policy better than what we have now? I thought it was dumb that they had to nearly copypaste an old site rule when the rules were restructured. Like, they couldn't take the five minutes to come up with something better.

And of course, if something is questionable, usually mods are very active in censoring, deleting or adding the appropriate tags to the thread.

Bans are kind of the last priority, unless you're intentionally spamming porn.

It's been the consistent standard of the rule for a very, very long time.
Pretty sure from before MLPchan days.
Lewd pictures of ponies that didn't show bits were pretty commonly shared, without issue, because they didn't have bits.

Personally, I think it's vague, and not very useful.

Well, I didn't make the rule, but here's my take on the whole thing.

I think ultimately what it comes down to is that, in a general sense in our society/media, bare butts have pretty much always been seen as more acceptable to portray than any other kind of nudity.

for example, you can show a bare butt in a PG-13 or even PG movie, whereas the second you show female nipples, a penis, or a vagina, BAM, you get an R rating.

it's arbitrary, for sure, but I think that's just how things have been for a long time and that probably factors in to the rule for this site.

also as Noonim said >>13986 if we banned all butts, there would literally be screenshots from the actual MLP show that would no longer be allowed outside of /ef/ and that would be ridiculous.

>>13987
>Please keep in mind that minors will be posting, and tailor your posts accordingly

this is waaay too vague, like seriously, a rule that open to interpretation is bound to cause abuse or confusion.

Idk that seems like a whole different kind of "butt" entirely.

Depends on who you ask. Personally, I've never really seen it that way.
But, then, there's plenty of fully-clothed items which're lewder than flatout completely exposed nudity.
So it's somewhat hard to say.

Still; I don't think this rule needs changing.
It's worked well for a long time.

subjectively, revealed elbows and ankles can be offensive
