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›

With a coming demarcation between /oat/ and /chat/, or at least, the difference that should already exist between them, I think people who are currently banned such as Steam Twist should be unbanned from /chat/ and allowed to return to the board with fewer rules, since they can just be barred from /oat/ and /pony/ etc if we want.

i copied this from thony's thread on /oat/, just in case this is something that is actually being considered.

>Controversial banned users like Steam Twist should be unbanned from /chat/, since it has fewer rules anyways, and then no one at /oat/ or wherever else has to deal with them


so is /chat/ just going to be the dumping ground of ponychan then? he was banned for a reason, bringing him back is almost entirely because of memes at this point. yes i am aware of /chat/'s status, but why would we allow him back? does that mean tossf, swiper and others are allowed back?

is there a moratorium, or is just every perma'd "controversial" user allowed back?

also will they be allowed back under suspicion? because i'm sorry, i think that needs to be a thing, especially if tossf is allowed back. /chat/ is kinda my home, i don't want it shat up by every banned asshole.

thanks for making a specific thread for this. i can copy and paste my concerns from the other thread too if need be.

What exactly are the details of this "demarcation"?

I checked the last few posts of the discussion thread and Macil was saying something about less political content on /oat/, is that what you mean?

I haven't been following those threads because honestly meta discussion stresses me out, I feel like people tend to exaggerate massively with various things and it just irritates me, BUT we don't need to get into all that ITT.

>/chat/ is kinda my home, i don't want it shat up by every banned asshole.


this. for example, /chat/ generally has a much more chilled-out vibe/atmosphere without the constant arguing people do on /oat/, which I enjoy. not that I don't like /oat/, because I do, but I think the boards serve different purposes.

also wasn't one of the original purposes of /chat/ was that more political or controversial threads could go there as opposed to /oat/?

It's interesting things worked out that way, considering

How on earth this became a meme i have no idea, i never found him all that funny.

That and so they wouldnt drown out the pony threads, same issue we had with serials really, which is probably the reasoning for /gala/'s creation now that i think of it.

But then we had the absolutely not completely braindead idea of making /oat/ the go-to board for everything without removing / repurposing /chat/ in the process because people didnt want to go to a different board to chat about their day and "pony-related" was for some reason a completely alien concept to grasp for most people at the time.*
Which then had the knock on effect of killing what little pony related topics we had on /oat/ to the point that we have about one in a blue moon that really gains any traction.

*-Meanwhile other sites shit out pony related content on a daily basis since their inception and no matter how goddamn much i encourage it there's a severe lack of creative spark amongst the people here that drives me nuts.
Even a shitty "open paint and draw your favorite pony in a minute." thread gets about 3 serious replies before it derails into people just talking amongst themselves or just plain dies.

I mean, shit like pic related even, it takes like two seconds to make after watching the episode in question yet the only episode related threads we get when they air are on /pony/ where they simply critique it instead of using the new material in an interesting way.

Celestia is dead, and time killed her.

The RP ban killed everything.

RP was what people did with new content, devising characters, and then having to reconcile their existence against new information from new episodes. Not to mention, OCs made people draw, and rps gave people sparks of content.
With none of that, we were relegated to basic conversation about topics, which, what are we to even discuss about it?

Now, you'd say RP should have been the destination for that. But RP in that sense makes people only ever make long lasting isolating campaigns and stories. Because it's just serials but for world building. But why build when no one bursts your bubble. So, it's just relegated to purely long term stories.

What's an appreciation thread with out being able to do anything but just say "We like this character". What more is there to discuss, the characters have already been done to death. Why do you think there were so many Glimglam threads in the first place, and Sunset threads, and Siren threads. Because we didn't have them figured out yet. But, the community was already dead. And it was killed a long time ago.

They wont Mikey, give it up. They cant admit when they make mistakes or abuse power.

Sorry... ADMIRAL cant admit when. The others i cant vouch for, cept Nibble.

Pipes wont be unbanned because it would involve pressing a button or two.

I doubt they even read his appeal.
