/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›

/gala/ Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9873

On the 17th of next week /gala/ will be dissolved, during this time active /gala/ threads can have a moderator move their threads to either /chat/ or /oat/ depending on serial preference.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 9874

Great, we'll just get in under the year and a half-past deadline for when it should have happened.

Now who went into each of the remaining threads to personally address the serial to let them know and will make sure to return closer to the time and give them another notification? Someone they already had/have contact with and has a good relationship with them?

Let me know if ya'll need more handholding or plan on addressing anything else this year

I think I speak for everyone in Story Thread when I say that I want us tossed in /chat/ with a mature tag.

If I don't then you should hear about it because I'm going to toss a link in there with some Broadway-ass neon lights and shit.

See, now that's communication.

As a fellow occasional user of that thread, I might suggest putting in a line in future OP's letting members know how the tag works, and the appropriate settings in the settings bar. Personally I'd put on 'treat mature content images as spoilered images' on my phone so i can browse it in public

Just delet /site/, no use anymore. It *is* ridiculous that someone who has no decisonmaking rights has to take care of shit that a competent administrator would have been on top of- wants the right and wants the authority without putting in the work and doing the hard background shit. Doesn't deserve it.

Reporting in for the /Spacetime/ thread

Pretty much everyone from our side that has an opinion has decided on /chat/, so it would be nice if someone can move us over.

The tag is for the benefit of other threads, so Story Thread isn't the top thread on the board every moment of the day. Or at least, that's how it's supposed to work. If it's not and/or they didn't communicate anything about it, well whaddya gonna do I guess.

/chat/ doesn't seem to have a bump limit, but Story only gets remade when the image limit is reached usually. The image limit is pretty high, so if a bump limit of ~350-400 was implemented, that would solve that problem.

I don't think they count as "corpses" if they're active enough to be on the front page. And cyclic doesn't really stop threads from being on the front page a lot of the time, if O.A.T.'s perpetual front page presence is any indication.

I don't think having a lot of serials on the front page is necessarily a bad thing. Seeing activity stimulates activity.

A lot of the most successful threads on /chat/ tend to be leisurely paced threads that last a really long time and always tend to be on the front page anyway. Like Chewy's music thread.

>>10001
Okay.. the proverbial corpse would be the old abandoned edition of a specific thread that reached 750 posts or whenever you decide to make that new edition of the thread you were talking about. This could lead to one or several serial threads that have been abandoned for a new edition of the same thread to take up space on the front page, bumping other threads to page 2, usually never to be seen again.

Having one cyclic thread means that if someone doesn't post in that thread and doesn't care about that thread, they only have to hide it once.

It's mostly just me and Amy using it as a couch, with you and Nepsi sometimes sitting in it too.
It could easily be deleted and we'd all just move onto Discord.

I don't think that'll really be an issue, given the nature of discussion on /chat/ and the fairly low rate at which non-cyclic serials get remade by and large. But if it does become a problem, I don't think it'll be a huge deal to sort out.

>>10011
It's a nice couch!

The point is that its only an issue, and it would be solved right now if Astra didn't just forget. If /gala/ threads are going to share a board with /chat/ threads then they should have as much consideration as Toybox demonstrated when she wrote the OP of O.A.T.

I just don't see it that way. /chat/ seems to have been getting more non-serial activity since a few serials moved over, rather than having that activity drowned out by serials.

I think there's enough room for everyone to have their cake and eat it too.

🐈🐈UMR🐈🐈!SUCC/WBAqgCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 10033

Nobody is saying that serials are drowning out activity, where did anyone typ-

Its like being a messy roommate, that's all I'm saying. Its like leaving your pants all over the ground just because you want to look at a different picture in the OP every couple days.

>>10033
Maybe those pants could be made to autosage quicker. There's no reason for a non-cyclic serial with some 700 posts to still be bumping.

🐈🐈UMR🐈🐈!SUCC/WBAqgCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 10041

>>10036
The issue does not come from bumping. The issue comes from /chat/ not really getting a bunch of new normal threads all the time, and people usually giving their attention to a few big threads that don't all get brand new editions every few days. If they kept remaking O.A.T. every time it hit like 750 posts, there would probably be 4 abandoned old versions of O.A.T. on the frontpage right now somewhere underneath the active thread.

O.A.T. is deader than that. Story is the most active of the new /chat/ serials, was just remade yesterday, and the old thread is just a bump of the "talk about your dreams" thread and a bump of the mental health thread away from falling off the page. That process could easily be expedited with some bump limit manipulation.

Okay if you wanna stick with something until its like 1250 posts then there's not gonna be too many. Is that the plan?

I could talk to Macil about seeing what the bump limit and image limits are and getting those adjusted slightly too if that would solve the issue to let everyone have their cake here.
