So I finished with the ponymote thing. If you would like to give them a whirl, you should check out the new Ponymote tab in the site options. All you have to do is enable them and select the ones you like the most to add them to your posting options. Just click on the little face and it'll put a little code thingy into your post that looks like :pony:. That will be translated into the ponymote once the post is submitted. And that is really all there is too it!
Also some people probably won't care much for these, and that is okay too. I put in an option into the ponymote tab to hide ponymotes globally. It will be as though they aren't even there.
For this first set, I wanted to have the main cast characters represented pretty well so I made 6 for each of them with a variety of expressions. But, there is plenty of room for more characters and more motes per character. I had made a call for some user submitted ponymotes a while ago but I hadn't really figured out what I wanted from them yet. But I think I do now, so if you want try and make some and submit, here are a few guidelines:
1. Make the backgrounds transparent.
2. Make them approximately 50px high which will be shrunk to 27px by the site (width will auto adjust, so make them proportional).
3. The width can vary, but don't make it too much wider or thinner than the height.
4. Make sure the details are good enough that you can see what the expression is at such a small size.
Special thanks to Agiri for making some a while ago, but I have to ask that you remake them to fit the above guidelines to keep a consistent style and quality. Thanks for understanding.
As always, especially with mobile devices, make sure to clear your cache if you aren't seeing the new options.
but you have to individually enable them?
They aren't showing up for me on the front page - at all
whether in posts or in the listing
Maybe I'm not imaginative enough to think people would want more than a handful active at once in their ponymotes panel, lol. I'll make it easier to select many of them at once eventually. But since it is a one time activity to click all of them to make them active, it was good enough to push this thing out now. They'll be plenty of time for improvements.>>1905
I see them just fine on the front page. You can give the cache clearing thing a try. It always seems to resolve those oddities for me.

If we are talking about the same front page, it should show up. Tried it in firefox, chrome, and mobile chrome. If you haven't cleared the browser cache yet, that's what I'd still have to suggest.

Thanks for all your hard work! This is a cool feature to have
Ill update all the old emotes to the new guidelines when i get home
I'll just wait and see what happens. I don't want to mess up all my forms on other sites just for emotes.
When I'm on the front page, the panel isn't there. If I disable and re-enable emotes, then the panel appears - completely blank. If I disable emotes globally and then re-enable, then I can see emotes in posts, but not in the panel. There's no reason the cache should allow me to see emotes (the same emotes) in one instance but not another, on the same page.
I see your ponymotes just fine, you have rarity there at the beginning of your second paragraph.
What do you see?
O sorry you arent seeing the panel on front page only.
But if you just put in the tags manually they should still work right?

Now all the other chans will make fun of us
Awesome, I liked many of the ones you made so I'm glad to see them getting updated to fix those little issues.>>1910
I hope you enjoy them. Honestly, they aren't even really my thing but I thought this would be a fun and unique (as far as chans go) thing for the community.>>1911
The more I have worked with computers the more I realize that they aren't as logical as they seem (or rather they are, but there is so much buggy code out there that shit doesn't behave as you'd think makes sense). I'm about 99% sure a cache clearing would fix it, but it is your choice if you wanna deal with the hassle. You could see if you can clear out only images and files from sites and not everything. I think all the browsers give you the option to choose what you clear and that might be enough to fix it.>>1914
So, just another day at ponyville, right?

you are amazing, Thorax!! Thank you for the hardwork! >>1914>>1915
We are the black sheep amongst imageboards, but i think our weirdness makes us wonderful!
Oh hey, look at that. Same thing for me now. That's super curious. Maybe it has something to do with the way the site rebuilds the front page. Oh well, at least it isn't exposing people's tripcodes like the edit code was, lol. One day I'll update the site and everything will work perfectly, just you wait.>>1923
It should all still work well inside the threads, so it'll just be how it is until I fix it.

Yes, like lostpony said there is an configuration if you go to Options->Ponymote to disable ponymotes globally. Make sure you have done that and it should all disappear. Let me know if there is any problem with that and I can look into it for you.
In other news, I think maybe I solved the problem with it randomly not showing up for people. If someone who has had the problem could report whether it is working as expected now, that would be great.

Im derailing this thread so my hearts n hoofs day gift pic will be pinned at the top of Ponyville 5ever.
She pre-approved this non-pony plush bird and its box is stuffed with filled Ghirardelli chocolates , labeled with our sappy pet names and secured by a white bow tied by me (the way she taught me).

Yes the Specialized is my real life partner. We spend a lot of time together every day. She always returns my love and makes sure all the work i put into our relationship gets me to where i need to be in life, makes me a better person and never lets me down.>>1949
Not bloody likely. Hates ponies??
That way of thinking about it is inspiring!
My bike definitely makes me a better person to. I should take her to get the chain changed and the brakes retuned.

For the chain, use teflon "dry" lube. Expensive but very sexy. Keeps it flowing nicely (i despise chain noise and derailleurs so much) and doesnt give your pants those nasty black chain marks. Yuck!
Brakes are for sissies. My hardworking 1970s Schwinn 2 speed has none, but since the Specialized came with them, i wimped out and not only keep them, but even use them once in a while (dont tell anyone, its embarassing!).
How would you stop without braking??
Just dig your heels into the ground, lol?
Fixed gear, decelerate the same as accelerate.
(Hence the concept of "climbing downhill")
One gear is all that is needed, no coasting no brakes. Become one with the terrain.
that's silly >_>
It's probably cool in it's own way
Thorax, today on my fone (android/chrome) i don't see ponymote panel in the current HAY thread but do see on top page and in other threads including this one.
In HAY when i put in code directly, the ponymote works ok.
Sorry to pester, just reporting an anomaly for your collection.
All hail the beloved Bug King!

Thanks for the report. I am having a really difficult time trying to figure out what to do about the issue and every little bit of info helps. I have hardly seen it happen to myself since the first few days, so frankly I don't even know how widespread this is. It is a big difference whether it is a sometimes effects some people or most of the time effects most people.
Thanks, I'll see if I can get around to adding these some time this weekend.

I'll check sometimes if I can try to propose some more, maybe of yet unlockable ponies
I checked earlier today and the ponymote panel was coming up ok for me on the HAY thread but only after the "load" bar finished running across the top. Until then, it was not yet visible.
Without knowing the site's code at all, it seems to me there may be some issue as to where in the page-loading the ponymote panel is implemented. The rest of the reply form was there during the page load, and since the ponymote panel appears only at the end then it seems to be coming from somewhere after the load procedure...so, especially in longer and slower-to-load threads like HAY, maybe the ponymote panel code's routine is getting skipped over because of some branch or control variable or something that does not always do exactly the same thing for any number of possible reasons. That could explain its intermittent nature.
If you need to add some code to the affected devices to help you log or gather data in some way, i volunteer to let you add stuff to mine. Edit: on re-read it seems you already see what i am suggesting, maybe you can output a status report of certain things to a local log file to determine whether certain things have completed etc? Which we could send you when we see the problem so you will know if suspected things have/have not happened?
Everyone here knows that writing code that works universally on diverse platforms is a challenging task, and i appreciate your diligent effort.

you're realla amazing Thorax
(and or hidden dev)
you can build a starlight arsenal too:
download png (transparent background)/ vectors
Crop a square window around the face
resize to about 50x50
I considered it before I put everything in place, but honestly I spent more time than I care for thinking about just the abbreviated names for the characters without even considering the emotion in it. I don't want to deal with having to name faces like:
That's too much bother for me. Also, it wouldn't be impossible to make a change now, but it would be a little bit of a pain because I'd either need to support both names (which the system isn't designed for) or do a migration which is a lot of hassle.
So, unless you make a very compelling case for how the usability is impacted by the numbering scheme, I'm basically not gonna get around to making a change.
