Why is the name field max size so small?  I want to have a big name 4u.

Also, "edit post" function when?

So as you may have been aware,  2016 has had a lot of really heated political arguments what with both the Democratic and the Republican party having highly controversial candidates, and those arguments  still haven't ended despite the election being over.
And as you might also know, those arguments have made their way to this site.
I propose there should be more control over political arguments. Not necessarily banning them altogether, but stopping them from escalating once they get to the point where someone posts something that could easily engage someone with strong left wing or right wing opinions.
Yes,  I believe in freedom of speech, but I also believe in a time and a place for it. I hang around on this site more than Ponychan to avoid this type of ugliness.

In so far as you are proposing that political threads be kept to a more civil tone of discourse, I agree wholeheartedly.

That is the approach I have been personally taking with political threads, as of the day you posted this (I think).  I would never be okay with banning them entirely, but I've been too lax in keeping them civil.  Going forward I'll be trying to keep a closer eye on them and prodding people if they get near any dangerous lines.

i think our current plan is to monitor the conduct of individual users in threads, and handle users on a case by case basis, instead of holding the threads themselves liable.

While this doesn't make political threads exempt from the rules that apply to all threads, i will say that i think the users are not upset as much about the fact that there are political threads as much as they are concerned about the negative content that emerges out of them.

As such, it is best if the staff handles things at the user level, in accordance with what the general consensus of users seems to be.

A round of cheer for Twilight, for sinking the one oldschool ponythread we've had in months.

Kudos.

Now we can get back to our hang out threads talking about our days.

How's your day, ponyville?

I know that the kids in my class would say way worse than any of that. And again, I was told that mentioning sex was ok so long as no explicit depictions of sex acts were.

I think Manley's thread was in slightly poor taste, but locking it and banning him was a bit too heavy handed.

>>928
>So, warning messages. Do they give the poster a warning screen, or does it just get posted on the offending post?
Honestly, I would say that if a mod wants to give someone a warning, they should post in the thread rather than sending a warning ban. That way it's harder to miss, and others can see where the line is too.

Either way, warnings need to be more clear to the people getting them.

Would you guys be interested in migrating your site to LynxChan?

Not only it offers better performance and documentation but a number of features, including:

Multi-boards
Overboard
File deduplication
User owned boards
Multi-lingual support
Modular front-end and language pack
Addon-support
TOR support
Text boards
Several anti-spam and anti-flood tools

I'll keep it simple.

This site uses MM/DD/YY.

As a Brit who's used to DD/MM/YY, this is confusing.

There is no option to change this.

Can we have a DD/MM/YY option, please?

Hey everyone. I'm one of the developers for Ponyville, and I'm working on the themes for the site.

Now, while I have some interesting ideas of my own (like creating a color theme selection separate from style selection), I'd like to hear from you guys some of your ideas of things you'd want to be included in the theming system. I can't guarantee that all of them will be done, but I will look at them and consider what works best.

Here's a list of ideas so far (will be updated as ideas come in and are completed):
Mane 6 themes (make them easy on the eyes in terms of colors)
New default theme! (Let me know what you want for it!)
CMC themes, Spike, Celestia, Luna, Discord, other nearly main characters.
Color/Style theme separation.
Lyra, Bon-Bon, Colgate, Etc.
Workmode style (hides/minimizes images and makes styling plain/non-pony looking)
Easy-on-the-eyes/basic/simple styles.

Ever noticed that if ou leave a thread open long enough, posts are added underneath yours instead of underneath the lastly added post?

I suppose I can mark this down as a bug?

>Please do not use offensive slurs, unless the language in question is topical and relevant to a non-offensive purpose.
Is it okay to merely mention (rather than use) an offensive slur?

The safe answer is no, do not mention slurs.  Do not use them towards friends as a joke, do not use them even if the person you are speaking to wouldn't take offense, and obviously don't use them to refer to someone in derogatory manner.

Why are you asking?

>Why are you asking?
Because the rule, as written, only prohibits using the word, thereby implying that mentioning it is allowed.  But it seemed that mods take adverse action against mere mention.
