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›

I'll keep this short and simple. I have no problem hunting wolves who like running around in packs and harassing others. Because that's what this bullshit was, and I know you saw it.

Second, I have no reason to bother telling your moderator to enforce the damn rules, but here we are because they weren't. Impartiality breeds these people who trod on others and think themselves immune to repercussions, as was evidenced by audacity of the post toward the bottom... which also abused diction.

TL:DR version: You and I have been around long enough to know what happened and the root cause. I gave warnings, and will continue to do so... but I also will continue to kick back when these people choose to attack others or myself, regardless of your moderator's abilities in discernment.

And I've explained that we both know the problem lies with the wolves that your moderators allowed free reign. You've made the rules - If they aren't being enforced properly it's your problem, so don't act as though the issue lies with me Fenolio. I've got a lot to say, but I feel like you already know what it'd be.

I appreciate the effort to talk to the developers to find a fix though.

The rules are as follows:
Threats and flaming are not allowed.

Disruptive behaviors that prevent others from engaging in a thread are prohibited.
Stalking, harassment, or posting of others' personal information are prohibited.


When i see threats or flaming in a thread, i warn people to stop.
If two people are going at it and i'm right there in the middle of it, i ask them to take it somewhere private.
If two people have gone at it and i'm only just seeing it an hour after the fact, i make a note of the people involved and watch for a repeat occurance.
If two people are going at it to the point of derailing the thread, i warn them both to stop it and tell them to take it somewhere private.
If one person starts attacking another and that other doesn't retaliate, i warn (and subsequently ban if this isnt the first time time) the aggressor to cut it out.

Stop implying that you are being attacked by a vicious pack of animals, you are having arguments with other people, you are an active participant in said arguments.
You have just as much 'free reign' as they do, the reason you were banned for (what should have been) a short amount of time is because you flat out admitted to harassing people when a mod directly asked you about it.

>saw the ban screens twice
for the record, if you place two bans, the second one doesn't over-ride the other. they both remain active for the full length of however long you initially put them, if that's what whoever did it thought. you have to remove the original ban, and put the new, shorter one on.

Could you please add the vichan reply/quick reply box to drag images to?

It works really well and it's probably the easiest thing you can do since it's built in vichan and you replaced it with custom JS.

We need somebody with access to the moderating tools around these times of the day, I guess we are lucky that the Russian childporn spammer only post one message per board that stays for 4+ hours before it gets removed.

It was pausing for the same reason your phone's music would pause if you played a YouTube video, or some other kind of media. I was once told it related to a notification sound option, but it had still been happening regardless if I had it checked or not in settings.

I'm gonna have to pull this out of my completely ignorant ass, but if I had to guess, the site would load your personal settings after the default settings of the site itself, which means the music would get paused before it even had a chance to detect that I'd had rely notification sounds disabled.

I have a few propositions:

- Put a Catalog button, or another page scrolling bar, at the TOP of the page, please. It's completely dumb to scroll down, just to get through the catalog.

- Force the anonymity on /anon/. Without that, the line on your frontpage is just a lie.

- Make an /int/.
>hurrrr we dunt need dat durrrr useless board huurrrrrr where is my burger
Ok, here is my situation. I'm not an anglo. So, my english isn't as fluent and clean as my mother tongue. I can't post /int/ threads on 4chan/mlp/. I can't post pony threads on 4chan/int/ or on imageboard made for people speaking my language. /gala/ can't be good for that, neither /oat/ nor /anon/. I created a board on 8chan; dead in 3 days. Make us a refuge
>inb4 /yeh/
Mods and janitors let spanish anons sharing CP just because they were too lazy to take a spanish janitor or even lurk /yeh/. They didn't assume that and ban every /int/ threads because of that. It was post-Scruffening.

- Equestria isn't just full of ponies, you know? Fantastic creatures like gryphons, dragons, zebras, breezies or even fanon creatures like bat ponies or moth ponies, etc, doesn't have voices or enough theories on the fandom. What about theories on gryphons? What about developping Zebrica?
It should have a board for that, too. But I don't have any idead how to name it.

- I didn't understand the issues to have a /clop/ board. Especially since the Merge. I don't requesting it one, I'm just asking why.

There is all. Have fun understanding what the fuck I'm saying.

Agree with an additional catalog button

Disagree with forced anon. There are valid reasons to occasionally use a name which we have mentioned a billion fucking times before

Disagree on any board additions.
There is literally only one thread of other language speakers and it is only used on weekends. And the fuck, if you want to talk abou5 show related shit do it. No one is stopping you. /pony/ and /anon/. Making a new board doesnt magically fucking make people more interested in talking about something.

I started picking up on some back-end coding a few months ago. So far I have a branch containing a URL blacklist ready to be reviewed, and !!Luna has been working on a review queue for suspicious posting patterns. Unlike the bots we previously had on old ponychan, these bots change their behavior as soon as they learn there's pressure. Adding F to the mods definitely brought up our report response time nonetheless.

>>3756
Ugh, I think I even had that issue fixed in those themes that never got pushed into the live site. I can poke our admin again to finally get them pushed, but since they've gone stale again, I have to cherry pick all the theme-related updates from the past six months to make it reviewable again.

And Fyik, if you're reading this, I haven't forgotten about your work either. It's in the same branch as the rest of those themes. Whenever that branch ends up going into production, you should see your work in there too.

Anyways, we plan on eventually making the site open source, but I want coders to be prepared beforehand. It's not something I learned overnight, so by the end of this break, I'd like to have at least a handful of coders to be familiar with the codebase so they aren't intimidated to contribute when the open-sourcing ends up going through.

There doesn't seem to be any info on how to properly request a thread go to /arch/.

Also, /oat/ has been very heavy on politics lately. Couldn't serious general threads have somewhere else to go? If not then "oat" seems a poor choice of name because it's usually not very crazy at all.

(I'm not sure "amateur rabbit necropsy vid" is the right type of crazy, either, but at least it wasn't politics.)

There should be a clear guideline of how offenses are handled (i.e. warning first then ban)

Also make nazism and racism against the rules and permanent bans. Any good forum makes a copious effort to keep it away, so I don't see how this place should be different.
