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

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.

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›

Starlight Glimmer and the line. HispCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 15482Locked

Hello and good evening people.
I opened this thread because I need the mods/ admins to clear something up for me and maybe for others as well.
Since I joined this community back in 2016 I have been drawing things for the users, because it was funny for us, it was funny for me and it helped me to practice.

I have drawn for Anon, Heavy Mole, Mac, Holly, Nimble Wing, Wheat, ect.
But the person whom I have drawn more for is Mikie (about 5 drawings).All of them (minus one) came out from my desire to give something to this community.

I stopped, I quit giving those personalized drawings because economical problems/collegue, but I had decided to get back on track this year by posting like the old times.

Past March 30th I drew a picture of Starlight Glimmer and I posted it on /ef/ on 1th April as an innocent joke to Mikie. However, it turned out it was not so innocent as I assumed: it got deleted.
I apologized to Mikie because I assumed I hurt his feelings.

The most of us know the situation between Mikie and Starlight, but fact that the picture got deleted (was not even NSFW) while other poster can open a thread just say the N-word or others can post fat ponies or NSFW stuff , confuses me and kinda discourages me from trying again with the future drawings I had planned.

There is obviously a force leaning the scale here, but that is not the main problem. I need to know where the line is drawn, clear rules because this:

Staff will only remove content that is illegal, improperly tagged or just plain spam, with everything else being free game.


does not give me an explanation.

Can't we post said character breaking the 4th wall?
Can't we post said character in sexual situations?
Can't we post said character being aggresive/rude?

Please add it to the rules.

I suggest as a beginning:

Staff will only remove content that is illegal, improperly tagged, just plain spam and NSFW pictures of Startlight Glimmer, with everything else being free game.




I apologize this you find this thread unnecessary, dumb or narcissistic.
I just believe we need clear rules in the board we all have more freedom, whether you are interested in my drawings or not.

Thank you,

It's a selfish rule. As a functioning adult, Mikey should be either avoiding spoilered NSFW threads if Starlight is so triggering, or blocking people who post her in his settings. As the admin of the website, it's an embarrassment.

We don't need to encode it in a "more appropriate" way. It needs to be removed altogether.

It was something I never intended on adding in the first place. I used to just delete certain images and be on my way.

But people decided I was to make it a rule and they demanded it as such.

So that's what I gave them. I only I can enforce these rules and I can any board I want to. Usually nothing ever happens but it doesn't usually happen.

>I apologized to Mikie because I assumed I hurt his feelings.

I wasn't even awake when it was moved to /trash/.

>an image posted of her here and there is fine

I think that should answer your question.

It was a rule that existed on original Efchan, back when Black Butterfly ran it, essentially a carte blanche for mods to act on anything they saw fit to act on. The intention was to cut down on rules-lawyering from certain people by having something we could point to and go "Look, you were warned", but it sort of fell by the wayside. Which I'm not entirely unhappy about, seeing as I've seen that sort of "general conduct" rule get abused in other places, but I figured that the mods here wouldn't abuse it. And to my knowledge, they didn't.

On the front page of efchan it stated: "This is Everfree, not Tartaros—don’t be a complete douchebag, moderation is light but not non-existent".

>>15499
So, if the point is to run ef like efchan, which was mikies promise, would a rule that said something along the lines of if you are posting something that you know a specific poster finds offensive, you need to warn them or something, violate the spirit of that?

Then people can post what they want.

>>15500

Depends. Only real rules on Efchan as it was before it was closed was "Don't post anything illegal" and "Don't ban evade", though moderators reserved the right to override that as needed. Ultimately, I think the kinds of people who are gonna get upset and say "That's not in the rules!" are honestly gonna be unhappy no matter how we implement it, as we saw when we tried to implement that rule and met much resistance from certain people who seemingly wanted a full constitution drawn up.

And I realize that last part's more than a little condescending, but goddamn, some people just never seem to be pleased.

Thats the only way i see out of it.
Then people could post whatever they want, and people who dont want to see it wont have to and people will be on the same page about it.

Can mods spoiler stuff?

No, but it would be a nice feature. We had it on Efchan, but it was made by Macil, and I have no idea how he did it, seeing as I only know the very basic concepts of coding, if that.

Not only that, even with the rules about Starlight would never result in a ban.

>>15503
We talked about making this rule before but it didn't go anywhere.

I don't think so, no.

It would work if we could, because then instead of deleting stuff without warning for seemingly no reason, we could just spoiler it.
And if someone is spamming it to be a dick, we know its deliberate.

Edit:
Or it could be by request.

Gotta figure out a way to write up the rule for /ef/ then. Which I can't do for shit. Could maybe copypasta it word for word.

Slow down.
I mean, we need to figure out how its going to work before we just make it a rule.
I mean, how do we even enforce it?

As it stands though, if someone posts glim, im not going to do anything about it, because then it would be me breaking the rules; because mods arnt suppose to delete anything that isnt illegal.

If they are doing to be a dick to you though, im def going to tell them to go fuck themselves.

Well put some thought into it.
Maybe you should ask about that spoiler thing.
But as it stands its an unenforceable situation, and if you just delete stuff, people are going to give you a hard time. Even with the rule on the front page, it still didnt apply to /ef/.

Jesus! Cut Mikie some slack. Being admin of this site is largely a thankless job, and Mikie does a very good job at it. It's not too much to ask that we users respect his wishes w.r.t. Starlight Glimmer.

Draw Chrysalis instead, you can avoid making Mikie sad and can make me happy at the same time.
