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 I'm not trying to be a douchebag here.
Surprising, I know.
But I think that if posting Starlight is going to be not allowed as a rule then it should be listed as an official rule of the site.

Edit: I fucked up

I agree. I don't think it's bad for the owner of the site to say "don't touch my waifu", but when it comes up unexpectedly like that it can actually look kind of scary. Putting it in the rules makes it look more like "that's the way it is" rather than "the admin's being weird".

Mikie(phone)!GlimDubEqICountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 14914

That post was a joke. Honestly tempting to add it as rule though.

I don't ask for much of anything here and let people get away pretty much anything. So long as they aren't breaking the law.

Including being an antagonistic asshole. So, even if I did ask that you should respect that.

Honestly it's shit like this that makes wanna give up. Like, asking for so little for me putting all the stress into running this place I can't even get that tiny bit of respect. Nice. Thanks.

political fighting (nobody even gets banned), loli bait, weird furry shit, lizard shit, shitposting, trolling (which is against the rules), controversial topics about jews, muslims, etc
>Admin makes a joke post but simply suggests to not do something and doesnt even ban
THATS CROSSING THE LINE

the admin's being weird

All I am saying here, I put in effort trying to keep this running. I get stressed when dealing with drama. I let people have the freedom to do pretty much whatever they want to an extent.

But I am not telling anyone to not post her; I am simply ASKING not to do it out of sheer FUCKING RESPECT. As a damn FRIEND. It's just like how you call someone who is MtF trans "her" or "she". You may not understand and care personally, but it's just being a friend and having respect.

Nobody is being banned or even demanded of anything.

I am take pretty much anything but I am sensitive about her.

Jesus H. Fucking Christ. This is the shit that is making me seriously consider stepping down.

I think you are over reacting just a bit, which i get, because its a starlight issue.

I think the concern here is that, the lines of what is acceptable and what is not need to be learned by experience, and yeah, it can kinda hurt when you have to learn the hard way.

Let's not pretend you were joking last night, because you kinda weren't, and the "im joking" edit came a half hour after this thread so if you were, it really wasn't clear at all.

Maybe try to be a little softer handed when letting people know you don't want them posting as/with starlight at first.

I am just pist, because this turned into a bigger issue than it had to have been. This fucking thread didn't have to made.

Yeah, I am going to overreact. That's exactly why I am reacting. I am just sick of the shit.

I don't think its a big issue yet, but i def see how you think it is, because you're sensitive about it.

But, esp if you want the site to grow, its going to have to be dealt with at some point because starlight is arguably the most popular pony. So better to do it sooner than later.

I really dont think it needs to be a rule tbh. I just think you need to figure out a way to deal with it that isn't so... scary haha.

Edit:
I dont think you were heavy handed last night tbh. I think you delt with it fine actually. But its not always the case.

Subjective. The mane 6 are still favorites among the fandom. Especially Twilight Sparkle.
>I really dont think it needs to be a rule tbh
I don't either.
>I just think you need to figure out a way to deal with it that isn't so... scary haha.
Yeah, true, but it works both ways. I think it's something I can at least for seeing as I take the time to keep this place alive for you guys.

Like I said before, I let you guys do pretty much whatever you want. Is it really too much ask to just respect my wish? Because it's shit like that makes me wanna seriously give up.

I mean, the site will prob never be on a forbs top 10 list, i just mean when a new comer shows up.

You are doing a lot for us, and i dont think its unreasonable for people to respect that wish.

But when a picture that Ika posts gets deleted without explanation, or im told you "literally hope you die tonight" because i crossed a line, that stuff hurts too man.

Which happens like pretty much never. It rarely happens if ever. And If it does they will learn too.

>But when a picture that Ika posts gets deleted without explanation

First of all, I didn't delete anything in that thread. I only saged it. Chewy suggested it would be better to just delete the image and then unsage it. He deleted it, not me.

> or im told you "literally hope you die tonight" because i crossed a line, that stuff hurts too man.

Second of all when have I EVER said this? Where did this even come from?

I didn't know that. Maybe it should be a policy among you guys that only mikie handles starlight issues, because it think saging it would have been fair.
>Second of all when have I EVER said this? Where did this even come from?
The last time I crossed the line, it was because i posted a totally legit recap video that had starlight and trixie doing a lewd thing.
You said stuff like you were happy you thought you had liver cancer and hopefully maybe it will kill you tonight and stuff... It kinda fucked with my head a bit if im honest. I felt like shit about for like a week.
Even ITT saying stuff like
>Because it's shit like that makes me wanna seriously give up.
Is pretty hard. At least for me.

As you know I have depression issues and I suffer from alcoholism. So, I am sorry you felt that way.

I've said many times before. Make fun of my political views, make fun of me. Whatever.

But this particular issue here is where I draw the line. It sucks I even have to explain this.

You don't have to explain. We understand.

We are trying to be supportive here. Trying to HELP YOU handle this in a way that doesn't look so hostile to people who just happen to post Starlight without thinking.

You have every right to ask that people respect your situation with starlight and to understand when you take issue with it. Its our responsibility to do our best to figure out where the lines are and not offend you.

But, we have every right to ask that you respect us too, by dealing with that situation in a tactful way when mistakes are made. Its your responsibility to figure out how to deal with it in a way that doesn't offend us.

Thats absolutely fair.

I mean, I am not gonna be mad if someone else posts her at random if it's just a harmless image. If it becomes persistent then I will likely get annoyed.

Oh for sure, and that's completely understandable. Anyone would.

But you're my friend, nothing im saying is meant to be a dig or hurt you. But it is important that it gets talked about, or else it will just brood. Ika was just the only one with the balls to bring it up, and honestly, he did his best to be soft handed too, so try not to feel like we are criticizing you, just letting the feelings be known.

The picture in my thread got deleted, chewy said it was because it had starlight and told us that it's your site your rules and that we should just deal with it and I didn't get a joke vibe from the other instance. So if it's not going to be allowed then it should be clear and made an official rule. I get that it's your site and I don't care about what weird arbitrary rules you want to enforce, just own up to it and make it a rule.

There is no point in making it a rule. Also, I didn't even delete it.

In the meantime, I am not gonna make it rule. But, if it really needs to be then maybe I will consider it. It should be mostly just a mutual respect. Which it seems to be everyone gets at this point.

I am not going on any further with this. I am not in the mood.

This is why i say, maybe the mods should discuss just letting mikie deal with this particular issue himself.
