/site/ - Site Issues

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›

Effective immediately i've stepped down from Admin due to teamwork concerns.
Despite best efforts from either party, neither Me or Macil have been able to solve our inability to work together to the point where the site has effectively stagnated for a long period of time.
We've both agreed that somebody else should take my place as Admin while i step back down to Moderator.
I'm sorry that things progressed this far and i hope to be more effective as moderator than admin.

I have literally no complaints to throw out about anything other than the behavior of certain people on this chan, in this case Ember. And this was the best place to do so, seeing as literally nothing stated in this thread matters in the least to the direction the site is going, making it better to say something here rather than making a thread just to get into an argument with him.

Ownership of the chat should be transferred to Macil.

The owner of the site who salvaged it from Orange's ransom demand of five thousand dollars, who has been in the pony community longer than any of the other options, when the alternative is chat ownership being someone who may or may not be an admin permanently and who concern has been raised about their intention and decisions and who has plenty of people with issues with them doing both, when Macil is basically the most neutral figure ever to be involved and who has never displayed an emotional outburst or bias against any user in half a decade of involvement and who is basically a solid rock on which to anchor it

Everyone keeps saying that the good people are getting scared away, but whenever I check up on one of these splinter sites, I never see any content that I want to participate in. Maybe it's mostly bad people that leave and there are only like a handful of actual problematic posters here that these amazing wonderful quality people are giving up on their community for.

Just because someone is scared away doesn't mean they've gone to a splinter site. Maybe they were scared right out of the community. I've pretty much stopped visiting ponychan-likes all together, though I'm not sure I was ever one of the Good People.

That is exactly the case, except now neither has half of the good things about them and are both, somehow, led far less capably, and instead of making each other better by forcing them each to be responsive and attentive to their userbases, they've made each other worse by attrition. Really, it's the worst of all possible outcomes.

I don't see why the head mod changing required a big drama thread.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 10284

>>10278
Because Macil needed someone to publicly take the fall for the last 2 years of his intractable bullshit, since he can't be assed to ever face the criticism for his decisions/nondecisions, and needs to use the staff as heat shields to deal with it all, and because he can't admit that it didn't actually require an administrative change to get things done, just for him to stop being a jerkoff and disrespecting his 'partner' every single day through absence and ignoring. Now he can 'allow' things to get done without ever looking like he's the one who fucked it up in the first place through inaction and failing to understand anything about a community he was never a part of prior.

He wasn't "head mod." He was co-admin; equal partner, allegedly, and in fact, supposed to be co-owner; by any objective standpoint, still is. Don't remind Macil of that, though.

then you don't know ponychan, at all. drama on the board reserved for site issues is a part of the ponychan experience, and drama about administration is simply part of the site.

hell, does anyone know how soon it took for people to start complaining about orange? i know it was within a few months of the site going live.

Can and does Macil do what he wants without oversight?

Can the co-admin do anything without Macil's oversight and agreement?

It's pretty apparent that the positions are not equal nor are they treated as equal by the people that hold them. The co-admin thing looks like something Macil agreed to once upon a time to quiet the populace. And Fen never actually got any of the passwords required to even potentially enforce it, meaning Macil could just completely ignore it from the onset.

I will never forgive him for this, honestly, not that he'd ever stop being oblivious long enough to apologize anyways, and I deeply regret it.
It just snowballed immediately after that; first Moony splits right as we're trying to unify, without telling us to not waste our time and effort, then Macil immediately begins slowly stonewalling Fen out, crushing the love and care he has for this place and his will to work for its improvement, then the staff do a poor job of managing things (some of them blaming elements on the 'other' site they didn't like, for their own failure to be effective moderators and manage things, usually because they didn't actually want to do any work, they just like having shiny tags. They know who they are and how hilarious it is that they'd bitch about anything the 'other side' brought in), then these recent changes I'd have never seen coming or ever agreed to. It was exactly as Flutters put, a trainwreck. I've apologized before but I'll do it again, I'm sorry.
