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, Part three. Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9664

Hello everyone!

In keeping with recent discussion we've made a more clear cut distinction between /oat/ and /chat/.

It has been decided that /chat/ will be the place for 'controversial' threads in addition to the more 'adult' threads currently available.

By 'controversial', we mean threads that delve into political issues, scientifical debates(Like who is best pony(Twilght)) as well as complex issues that many people have extremely passionate opinions about.
With this change, it's hoped that /oat/ and /chat/ will better differentiate themselves and allow the users of both boards to find the appropriate niche for them.

This will leave /oat/ with the more social/silly topics and the normal behavior constraints from the recently updates rules.

If there's a really bad baity Anon thread that we've already seen, it should be moved to /trash/, not /chat/

and the pepe/wojak exchange stuff

It's currently under discussion, and some announcement will follow in the coming weeks.

I keep forgetting my admin tag

>>9669
It wasn't properly distinguished before.

Are we allowed to post NSFW images in /chat/ in response to a thread that isn't necessarily NSFW?

Understandable at least.

## AdminCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9673

>>9671
The rules on NSFW have not changed at all, NSFW content must be in a mature tagged thread.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9674

>>9670

can there be a rule against the controversial stuff shitting up the comfy threads, assuming anyone tries that?

like what I mean is, the politics and lewd stuff should stay in their relevant threads, unless the discussions in the comfy threads starts relating to the other topics.

for example, hip-hop music discussion can very easily get derailed due to racist stuff, and I don't want that happening when we discuss music in the music thread on /chat/. I just don't want that kind of shit to ruin the good threads.

I have no problem with the controversial/political stuff in general because I can just hide it.

Why not allow for tagging individual posts as NSFW/spoilering them

That's already a thing, purposefully disrupting the threads with that type of content would be disruptive behavior.

Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9680

You should use my wording, honestly.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9681

-In those announcements, state that /chat/ is designated for adult content, topics and interactions with significantly less constraints on behavior, serials which wish to post adult content, and topics and style more in keeping with imageboard culture.

-State /oat/ is for all other content, with the sole exception of roleplay (/rp/) and more topical discussion of the show (/pony/).

They're not moving it to "Astra Presents Ponychan 'Official' Discord" though.

Just to /chat/

It has it's own channel called #shitpost for shitposting

>>9694
If you have issues with how /chat/ is moderated I recommend filing reports, talking to mods, or talking to myself about it.

You don't understand. This isn't about having a place for debate. This about having a hole where mods can throw threads they don't like while pretending to listen to anonthony so he doesn't go ballistic over what a train-wreck we've made of things.

There's nothing controversial about Trump being a fascist buffoon and his followers being unamerican nazis.

It's well-documented and indisputable.

He had nothing to do with it.
>>9742
You're welcome.

Virtually everything - word for word - is exactly what I wrote them to do before this. They even used most my wording for the announcements, and right down to chat server mods. Almost everything in the list I sent them was point-for-point what they're trying to do.

Then again, most of it is what I'd been telling Macil to do for the last 6 months, so I'm still not entirely sure why it took this long. Especially since he hasn't actually done anything - he's just allowed the staff to finally do what I've been telling him forever. And I'm really not sure why it required a completely unnecessary (and unacceptable) change of the administrative agreement in order to do any of it, since again, it was all just literally what I've been telling them forever, and would have gotten done if he'd just allowed them to do the job they were chosen for.

But since I'll never get the satisfaction of an answer, neither will anyone else. Which is why I'll be waiting for that permaban.

So /chat/ is /pol/ containment board, excellent, I shall stay away from it! The Discord is fine for the more 'adult' stuff.

I mean, alt right is just the majority on imageboards. There is no "debate" as anyone to the left of that gets dogpiled and branded an sjw. I'd be more attracted to a site with a neonazi hellhole board than the whole site being one.

It shouldn't be this way tbh...

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9752

And /gala/ thing should have already happened by now. You set the expectation for the threads, and now you're waiting too long before coming through. You made contact and now there's an expectation been set. Communicate/Implement/Execute. Get it done. Set a time, give a notice, follow through. I shouldn't have to be a mentally fucked up crutch to prop up management. I gave it up because you were supposed to be able to do it together.

These are things that I've wanted to do since the merge happen and have even tried to press on Fen and Macil before that fell through.

Just because I use your wording in an announcement doesn't mean that the idea is something I got from you, or that I had no input and wasn't one of the driving forces behind it, thanks.

>>9752
An Announcement will be going up soon, Macil had concerns about doing so much so quickly and felt it would be better to wait a bit before making some more changes.

While I don't agree, its not enough of an issue to fight over and is resolved with a week or two of waiting. The official announcement of any new changes will happen on the 11th.
