/site/ - Site Issues

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

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.


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›

Updates! ## Admin 9154

Hello, everyone! In keeping with the recent changes in administration and the issues being worked on with the site, we're updating our rules page, the rules for the Discord server, and adding a new section on moderation standards to the front page https://www.ponychan.net/. This will allow us to better clarify the site's standards and keep our moderation in check.

Changes to the rules include:

>Racist, sexist, and other vitriolic behavior will not be tolerated. You don't have to be politically correct, but you are expected to maintain a minimum standard of behavior.

>Friendly banter/mockery is fine, but hostility is not.

Site Staff Standards:

>Moderators will always seek to understand a situation fully before issuing any ban.

>Moderators are required to be in communication with their fellow staff members and will always seek a second opinion when unsure of an action.

>Any moderator that acts outside of the established rules to deal with disruptive behavior will consult with other members of staff, and a mod post will be made explaining why action was taken. These actions will be reviewed with the admins, the rules amended, and changes announced if necessary.

>Bans that range from one second to one hour are considered warning bans, meant to discourage certain behavior and give an explicit warning that users are unable to ignore when rules or the spirit of said rules are being broke.

>Bans that are longer than an hour are meant to block bad behavior from the site. These can be appealed if the user demonstrates they are aware of why they are banned. Bans can be re-applied or extended if behavior is not adjusted after the ban or during the appeal process.

>Bans can be appealed and will be reviewed by members of the staff; In the event there's any confusion or concern over an appeal more than one moderator will review it before a decision is made

Anything not directly mentioned in this post will be staying the same unless otherwise stated as we continue to review the rules and standards. Any changes will be announced on /site/ when they're made

What is the protocol with dynamic IP addresses and banning posters?
Steam Twist was an issue and a half due to this.

If our current tools make it hard to keep track of bans and warnings applied to posters with these types of issues we would keep a separate list of their issues.

Mac !RevGiOKgRo 9185

What will the list do exactly, aside from documentation?

Mac !RevGiOKgRo 9192

btw /anon/ is still mentioned on the front page.

>...The site employs a tagging system for adult content threads on the /anon/ board.


It would just be for documentation.

I'll make sure Macils aware so it can be fixed.

Is posting Trump a banable offense now?

Mac !RevGiOKgRo 9270

>"not a democracy"
>on a discussion website where opinions are supposed to flow

It is in their rights as private owners, but it always gets me, this line.


It poses as a democracy when there's nothing to lose, and becomes a dictatorship the second the users' wants conflict with the staff's feelings.

Anonymous 9556

soooo... we're letting steam twist back in?

Anonymous 9557

honestly this is most online forums of a sort; they want to appear democratic and want to generally get feedback and information from users about the experience, but ultimately its somebody's site and the people that run it tend to do so as volunteers, so actually executing all the trappings of a 'democratic system' is inefficient and generally not wise either, as theres always going to be loud obnoxious users who think they can run things better via the complaint line.

Mac !RevGiOKgRo 9591



"Volunteer" is kinda misleading IMO. It is work without pay, but aside from having to work under people that you might not want to work with, it's a very desirable position within the community. And you need to be on the Admins very short good boy list to even be considered.

Anonymous 9618

>it's a very desirable position within the community
is it really? lord

I thought moderating online groups was a desirable position once too, but then I actually did it.

Starshine!Laura/wmXM 9620


I've got a great new rule idea

How about you can't post about politics at all without a name?

Anonymous 9627

Change the rules to make exceptions for jokes pls

The Person Who Posts As Fluttershy (Element of Self-descriptive Usernames) 9652

We need a function for politics threads that assigns each IP a random name from a list of active users.

Anonymous 9655

Why even care about crafting rules and systems for politics? This is a pony website.
If you want a chan designed around conversing politics, why not just make your own /pol/ chan?

I think that most of the new rules should not apply to >>>/chat/ (formerly called /anon/) and
/trash/. those are basically the /b/ of this site!

They more or less don't. The rules for /chat/ can be found here >>>/chat/645085

I know that intra-ponychan raids are not allowed to be done. But what about raids that target other sites? Just asking.

Admiral 11552

Ponychan doesn't raid. Ponychan has never raided.

4am 11553

Oh I hear ya.

But I'd still like to hear from at least a mod if not one of the admins on this particular issue.

Admiral!!Lyra ## Mod 11554

>Raiding and raiding plans.
>On publicly viewable boards.

Anonymous 11556

Actually raiding is good. We should raid multiple other sites, as many of us as possible as organized as possible to post ponies at multiple sites for as long as possible one night and just see what happens.

Macaroni !RevGiOKgRo 11557

>just see what happens.

Numerically superior sites turn against us and counter-raid us into oblivion?

Anonymous 11558

/mlp/'s reprisal would be short-lived but at least interesting for a day here. could use it.
>numerically superior
Other than /mlp/, we ought to make like the US and only do it to smaller ones. :^)

algol 11568

Raids sre a great way to advertise as well
