I wanted to make a thread about that other thread because I don't see why it was locked. The rule given as a reason is adult content rule #1 which reads: "Please do not post, link to, write, or engage in roleplay depicting pornography, gore, extreme violence or fetishistic content."

So let's go through them one by one. The names and short descriptions of fetishes are not pornography or fetishistic content. No one was linking to anything. No one was writing anything pornographic or fetishistic. There was zero roleplay in the thread. I think it's safe to say that no one was using the thread to get off. I think if you want to disallow any mention of the stuff you should make a rule that clearly says that.  

It was also mentioned that the staff was going to discuss this. What's the progress on that?

You're right: two months is ridiculous and unacceptable. We apologize that it has taken us so long to come to an agreement - this issue ended up triggering a bunch of other discussions drilling down to what we all saw as the purpose of the site. It took a while to tie up everything and get back to the topic at hand, but it was not okay for us to essentially ignore this thread the way that we did.

With regards to fetish threads, we have decided that such discussion is not in line with what we see for the site. We will be adding the following rule:

- Discussion of specific fetishes or content that may incite a reaction to a fetish is prohibited.

With regards to the issue of our delay in response, from now on we will let you know if it looks like an issue is going to take longer than we expected to work through, and will provide a timeline so that people know when they should expect to hear back from us.

This is a learning process for everyone on the team, and we appreciate your patience. Thank you.

I don't understand why that wasn't there to begin with, or why people couldn't just infer that sexual discussion includes discussion of fetishes.

But at least it's there now!

I have a really weird Techincal suggestion related to boards and such.
It's… very strange and would probably shake the foundation of this being a chan site, but I do wonder what kinds of effects it would have on site use.

So, my idea would be to "replace" having boards with having tags.

So, lets say you want to post about ponies. So, you just go to pony and post. Or, what if you want to post off topic, you'd go to an off topic board and post.
What if it's an image dump, you go to pic and post.

But what if it's a pony image dump that can have off topic discussion?
You'd probably put it in off topic. Because you wouldn't want posts like that flooding the wrong board.
But what if you could solve flooding problems as well as have threads belong in multiple places?

My idea comes in two parts. First is obvious, tags.
A user goes to pony and posts, the tag is automatically added as pony. It's pony. But, then it can just have offtopic added to it.
Or, you post in off topic, and it's mainly pony related off topic, so the pony tag is added.

I figure tagging fits the needs of more boards, and more boards only fits the needs of more posters.


This definitely isn't anything I expect to see or expect to be implemented quickly.

Just a random suggestion that I hope will make the site a little nicer and I figure it makes sense to pitch in while the site is still fresh rather than set in it's ways.


I'm bumping this thread since we are currently considering getting rid of /cartoon/

I think it's a good idea. It's like it's /all/ but an /all/ where threads can be in multiple tags simultaneously because it fits there.

/pony/ would be come /all/ with out site anyway with out /cartoon/. So, I think now is a decent time to revive this idea.

I honestly ask because I don't know if this is a stupid crackpot idea or a good idea. I've never run a chan before, and I've only been on a few chans anyway. But, in my head, this seems like a good idea. I think it could work if thought through by people who know more on the topic than I do.

I think there should be a change to the rules, as shitposting is not inherently malicious, and it kind of drives people off. Or at least allow for a thread where it is safe to "shitpost" if you all think that it'll clog up the board.


File: 1447441692358.png (1.04 MB, 5830x4950, 53:45, twilight_sparkle__alicorn_….png) ImgOps Google

Yeah, the shitposting rule has been the subject of much discussion amongst the mod team. It's tough to nail down the difference between fun silliness and obnoxious shitposting, and we haven't yet been able to quite find that line.

We're working on clarifying it, and until then are treating issues on a case-by-case basis, with a focus on being lenient unless the post is actively disruptive.

Uh, looks like I'm a little late to the party here, but I just finally found out this existed and, well, I'm pretty lost and confused. The more I look around, the more confused I get. I've looked for some kind of history of how this came to be and I'm coming up largely blank. A few years ago, I probably would have been all for a Moonychan, but with the fandom shrinking, Fen presumably still at the helm, and mlpchan having relatively recently merged back in, hopefully with others to follow, I can't help but be utterly confused. It almost sounds like some crazy idea of Zamoonda's rather than something that could be reality, and yet here we are.

What I can gather so far is /pony/ is more or less one of the more popular forms of /oat/, a general discussion board, and then you've got a /site/ and a /co/, but that's it. I'm baffled as to why there'd come to be another pony-related imageboard at this point, and I wonder about whether it'll be healthy or not for the fandom as a whole. So, could someone enlighten me as to the history and reasoning? It's not exactly a trivial effort or expense to get a functional and responsive chan - which you appear to have - up like this, so someone involved must have had some kind of compelling reason. Especially with the SFW thing, it looks redundant at first glance, so I assume I'm missing something. Perhaps some bit of drama, or I hope, some much better reason. What should I know about this place?

Oh, and it feels a little silly for one person to have both a mod and admin tag. Just sayin'. Though it isn't the first time. And no Cadence? Oh, and, is there much of a gamer population here? Can I expect to see most of the familiar faces both places for now?

Personally kinda feel some of the rules aren't really too enforced around here. Not that it's a bad thing, but it just seems kinda weird to have these set rules and not actually enforce them too much.

I was really surprised when I started posting sharks and not a single mod said a single thing about the suggestiveness of some of them. I guess it's because they pretty strictly follow the no NSFW rule, but, come on, some of these are questionable. Not that I'm saying the mods should react heavily to me posting them, just pointing out the weird dichotomy.

As for this place, well, it seems Moony wanted a place for people to go and basically just be nice to each other and not have to deal with imageboard culture. I think it's worked. No memes really forced themselves into this place (yet), people are generally and genuinely nice to each other, insults are uncommon and usually just for fun, and shitposting is kept to a bare minimum.

All hail the hypnomoony, niceness will be enforced, regardless of acceptance by the target.

(And how dare anypony ever think that the moony is nice and everyone around him is nice too trope is bullshit.)

Is there any plan to add showing clicked replies inline with the post?

I have to deal with the mobile site every day and the only real gripe I have is if I click on a reply number, intentionally or not, it opens that entire thread regardless of size to show that one post. I don't really have a "hover" option, either.

I can learn to make my big clumsy fingers do what they need to, but this would be a super nice feature if it isn't too difficult.


It's on the todo list!

*I* don't mind the current size when using standard compooters

But as said, on mobile it's a pain to navigate, and I'm not sure this site has a mobile version which I suggested an option to hide all images as a possible solution to that

Could be that others find it fine on mobile atm, but I personally have trouble using the site as is on that.


File: 1445019372920.png (430.35 KB, 533x607, 533:607, yeesh.png) ImgOps Google

I should clip them, yes.



I suggest keeping them the same size and adding an options you can select if you're on mobile that resizes them smaller. Making them slightly smaller won't do anything for mobile users, most likely, and if you make them only slightly smaller, the difference between this site and other sites will become less pronounced, making this site's images seem weird, due to only being slightly larger - in other words, the site would lose its signature "pony site with giant images" trademark and become just another pony site with normal images…

Smaller images will also de-emphasize the fun pony expressions, resulting in a less nice site.

Goats is trying to get me to post here for some reason. Already I see a fatal flaw of this imageboard. What do I do if I don't want to talk about cartoons? What about vidya? Or art? Or books? Or sports? Or literally anything else? This site needs a /chat/ or something similar or there's no point. Don't get me wrong. Cartoons are great. But I can only talk about MLP, SU, and Rick and Morty for so long without it being dull.

That's dumb. Why have it named that? This website is dumb. Bronies are dumb. Everyone's dumb.


While I too was surprised to find that /pony/ was the general board, given the current traffic of the site, I do not find it to be much of a problem beyond not knowing where to go at first.

But I have noted your complaint.

I can appreciate the fact that you don't find some things on this site to your taste, but have you considered starting a thread about something you like? What is it about a board named /pony/ that will change the nature of the conversation in a way that you want?

Does that change trying to start a discussion to your taste somehow?

We have been getting mixed reports about the performance of the site; many find the site to load as fast as their internet connection allows, whereas others find the site annoyingly sluggish, with long threads and large pictures alike taking many seconds to load.

We suspect the performance may be different among different geographic regions. In other to confirm this, we would like your input.

In other to track this down, it would be really convenient if you could post:
- the performance of the site as it appears to you, and
- your geographic region.

For example, for me, the performance is poor but not unusable, and I'm in western Europe.

Am I the only one having problems navigating the site? Threads and boards just refuse to load a good chunk of the time. The page just freezes and refuses to respond instead of loading properly. It's very frustrating having to refresh constantly or even having  to close and reopen the site just to be able to read threads, let alone respond to them.

There is definitely something strange going on with page loads, with some loads either taking an unexpectedly long time or timing out altogether for no obvious reason. I'll have a look.
