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›

What can we expect to be done for the site's 6 year anniversary?

Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9549

We have a few ideas that we've been throwing around, an official announcement is going to be made sometime within the next week with the things we have planned.

I don't want to put my foot in my mouth, so until I'm awake proper that's all I'll say for now.

well you missed the anniversary you fucking faggots

there is no possible excuse for your apathy towards the administration of a legacy that should be cared for, with so much history. fuck you both. neither of you deserves it. neither of you are fit to be caretakers of the ponychan name through the end of its twilight years. fuck you.

I mean,lol, how did you not have things already delegated out and prepared? How did you not have a modboard thread detailing a timeline and plan, either relegating responsibilities or giving elective options for staff to pencil themselves into, with prepped thread OPs ready to be c&p'd, with yourself prepared to take on any missing options and take the lead on? How the hell does one call themselves a community admin in this context? When people like mellow, flutters, other non pchan staff, look back at their old leadership (not boss - leader) ask them how it was. Ask them what a community administrator looks like. And in more than just community activity. Ask them about fieldwork, about standing in front of the team (not throwing under bus), about clear delegation, about preparation, organization, energy and presence. Goddamn, kid; you're washing out of this job faster than Basic. And when Macil can't even rouse his invisible ass to post "no you cant have vocaroo embeds" to a 3 week-old question, then we're in the hands of a hopeless duo and it's pretty fuckin' exasperating to watch, especially in context of that year+-old thread where he was already pushing out his so-called "partner."
I'm deeply sorry to everyone for creating this eventuality 2 years ago. My bad.
Edit: oh lmao apparently a modboard doesnt even *exist* bc mac never bothered with one ha ha. Doesnt excuse other admin not doing all of above in a chat or doc, and only adds another notch to the "fuck macil with a rake, sideways" list

Twilight years? That's rich. It's beyond pitch black. Twilight years was, like, 2013, 2014.

If people want Macil gone bad enough, they could get him to leave. It's not so much more difficult than the entire staff bringing him in for a sitdown or ultimatum. A good future is waiting; one need only to reach out and grasp it.

I literally offered to *pay* him to turn back management of the site to Fen (or rather, for the first time, since he never allowed anyone to have any real voice except himself all this time). He refused. Part of that being that Fen simply is burned all the way out on dealing with him (as are most of them.)
I wish there was some amenable agreement he and I could come to where management of the community I've tried so hard to caretake foe were in capable, interested hands who still loved this place and the technical maintenance was satisfied, and I would pay for the privilege of making that happen. I don't know what terms would bring this about and I don't trust he or Astra to bring it about either. I'd give any amount of work and time to set things on a better path, but he has not listened in months, and yet still seems intent on retaining all decisionmaking, with delegating a tiny sliver of the responsibility to Astra, who again I see no reason to believe in. There was only one person I should've ever trusted. Fuck. =/

Do we know why he refused? I mean, if he just doesn't like Fen, I guess the next best thing is to just find another person who's both a coder and a good leader. That is to say, a webmaster.

Not that I know anyone on this site who fits the bill beyond Macil.

Good joke.
Nothing will happen anyways. I wish i had the option; i could set things to an acceptable trajectory in a day of control.

Oh, I'm sorry. I meant that in the past tense. I mean, I just have a hunch he was a fine admin years ago, on his splinter site. Nobody fits the bill here today.

Maybe try and find a diamond in the rough, ask Macil again, see what he thinks.
