Oh, you know you're right. Our stupid ban list deletes the history of the ban after it expires and has been viewed by the user. I forgot about that, I need to fix that cuz it doesn't really make sense for a board as small as ours, we can keep the ban history just fine. So I guess, scratch the 26 week thing. But still, bans aren't used to often.

Not to make trouble, [proceeds to make trouble] then why doesn't the clean slate apply to Manley's political ban?


I think you're confused.  What Moony said is that the ban count starts at zero for the purposes of the ban escalation table.  I dont think Manley's politics ban counts toward the count for the escalation table.

Unfortunately I'm posting this from my phone, so I'll be a tad clumsy with this thread, undoubtedly, but, I'm afraid the post eliceted a rather sharp reaction, and, while I'm sure it'd be best to wait until I get home, that's in a lot of time, and I simply do not have the will to ignore something like this.
I am, of course, referring to !!Scootaloo's post here http://ponyville.us/pony/res/849668.html#857859 (pardon the lack of quality crosspost; I was never good at those).

Not only was it incredibly insulting, I had no chance to explain myself or give my own story. Instead, I was berated publicly, for all to see, on something that I simply do not believe to be true.

As I'm sure you can understand, it's thoroughly embarrassing, generally stressful, and, naturally, enraging.

If these sorts of judgements must be made, please, keep them at the very least private, and give a chance to reply. Instead, I have to make this thread, which undoubtedly only further sets us at odds, as I'm certain now all parties feel insulted.

This did not need to happen. I am, and always will be, completely open to discussion from anyone, on any issues between us. While I am certainly bullheaded, you can ask Mikie for confirmation on that, I am also always willing to communicate past differences or issues. Again, Mikie can confirm that.

All in all, I should hope no user needs be berated and publicly shamed like this, and certainly would hope it is not standard practice.

I've been trying that. Guess I'll keep at it. Maybe I'll try being more brief.
Email is impersonal, slow, and too cold in general. While I understand some people's preference for it... Can you imagine going through some 70+ different emails trying to keep track of what is what?
I wouldn't want to deal with that.

>He isn't, and you aren't allowed to lead him into trying to debate that, either.
Was never my goal. Like I said, I can't tell what limitations there are around his ban, unfortunately, as feminism, for example, was fine until now.

>i really cannot go and read all of this, noonim, or go back to read all of that huge thread. It's really giving the staff a headache too.
I totally understand. Most of it's been a back and forth from me and Scootaloo, here, who doesn't quite seem to understand that my issue here, at least as far as this thread goes, is entirely to do with the accusations made.

Honestly, there's not that much left for you, as far as that sort of thing goes. I would prefer the post be deleted or otherwise modified, though.
Although, this is less important now that it isn't on the front page any more... Still, though.

i wouldn't say feminism is fine: it's just, we didn't catch it in time, and it's not really fair to go back so far now and retroactively act on something both parties got so confused over

scootaloo's post, you mean, deleted or modified?

That's fine, I guess. It's a bit of a confusing ban in general.

>scootaloo's post
Yeah, basically.
It's not a huge deal now, though, since it isn't on the front page any more.

For the record this has annoyed me for a while. Today is the day I choose to bitch about it.

If you hover on a link to OP while using the dark theme it incorrectly highlights the post in pink when it should be light grey.

I haven't rummaged through the CSS myself, but I assume it'll be a quick fix. Not exactly urgent though.

OK, well ones like that that you aren't sure of, you can mark NSFW.  (Even though I think that one is most likely safe.)  But the first two that you posted in this thread are clearly non-risque, so I don't think you should have trouble marking them as such, no?

My problem is the original photo that's got me in trouble was also one I personally considered rather tame, not too dissimilar from this one of Anna, for example.

But, since they say it's just going to be changed to NSFW if there is a problem, it's not much to worry about. All flight what I think could be, and just post as normal otherwise.

I'm really curious what sort of spaghetti code is running this place.  I say that because on my own cgi web forum, I could always seem to implement changes within minutes/hours that seem to be monumental undertakings here.  Things like the SFW switch would literally take minutes to make.  So what sort of duct tape is holding this place together?  What's the main issue when it comes to site changes?  I'm not saying this to put down the devs, more that I want to understand what the hangups are.

Here, this was the effort required to make the change for the SFW Switch. Took about 6 lazy dev hours (i.e. part of the time spent was faffing about). I ended up going with just adding a column for nsfw, because anything else seemed like madness. I pretty much could not have made it happen with any fewer changes that this.


>>1942  interesting.  what were the quick reply deletions?


It was doing crazy things to get the Spoiler Image checkbox to right align on the same line as the file selector of quick reply panel. Considering I dropped the checkboxes under the file selector, I didn't need that madness anymore.

I propose we create a new /sleepykittens/ board.


I'm sorry anon, we had a big debate over it in mod chat and while the staff was split we ultimately decided against /sleepykittens/. Just between you and me, I'd have supported this new board, maybe even decommissioned /pony/ in favor of it. But, I ultimately am just a dev and can't force it through by myself.

But please make as many sleepykittens threads on /pony/ as you want, and maybe with enough demand and support we can get that new board up and running :3

I find that posts (especially long posts) are more pleasant to read when the line spacing is increased, e.g.:

    div.body {line-height: 1.333}

It would be nice if there were an option to set a value for


That's probably doable. I mean, I'll throw it on the to do heap.

You need examples of what is ok, what is ok with permission, and what is not ok.  I don't believe for a second that anyone is asking for permission on the things that they post.

So I have been wondering about this for a while, and I would like to get everyone's opinion and feedback on it.

Are the rules generally the same on /rp/ as on the rest of the site? That might seem a bit obvious, that, yes they are, but when it comes to creative projects and especially writing, I feel like that might get pushed into the grey area.

Things might come up in writing that isn't often seen in just general posting, or using images in our posts.

Say, for instance, I have a very dark and grimy world setting. Am I allowed to push it a bit when going into detail about characters deaths?

Back on old ponychan, we could go into some details, but it was generally frowned upon to describe fully, a brutal murder and all the details that came with that. And to add to this, sex scenes where supposed to be taken off the site.

But ponyville feels more pg-13 than ponychan did, so concerning these topics, I would like your guys feedback.

Will /rp/ have any different rules than the rest of the site? Should it even be allowed, just because of creativity? Or could that then be taken advantage of and used in arguments/debates in the other boards?

i've been watching our /rp/ board, and am glad to see that it has a small, but devoted userbase.

i can see the concerns, and would like to ask our /rp/ ponies: what do you want to see?

Would you like an independent set of rules, based on our all-purpose rules, that maybe allow for some creative exceptions?

It is my opinion that when we get specifically into the realm of roleplaying, there should be far more creative freedom from the rules. Though, what that means, i am not sure yet!

What do you think? i will see if we cannot make things a bit more free for /rp/.

>I mean do you feel like you are gonna get into trouble for something you have or will be posting soon?

Well actually yes...kinda.. i mean, not in 'trouble' persay, so much as probably a verbal warning to tone it down.

No, I think what I wanted to know mostly was if and how ponyville.us was going to be different from ponychan, or other similar sites for that matter.

It wasn't just the recent talk of rules over on /pony/, I've actually been thinking about if for a while but haven't had the need to bring it up to anyone, since I haven't been roleplaying.

I do like dark rps and good bloody fun, but I was apprehensive about having those sorts of things here.

But if everyone feels that isn't a big deal, and doesn't think it will affect the other boards in a negative way, then yea, I can agree with you and say just leave it as is.
I think I like what Crit was saying in that it is good as it is, and if something comes up later, then maybe we can make a tag system then.

This other anon's thread >>>/pony/827659 was locked.  I understand one reason for locking it (it sure seems like political shitposting to me), but I would like clarification on a point.  A stated reason for locking the thread is "Normalizing Nazi iconography isn't acceptable".  But I see nowhere in the existing or newly proposed rules any indication that the 'normalization' of the iconography of certain political ideologies is verboten per se.  Is all casual use of symbols exclusively associated with any violent extremist groups (such as Nazis, ISIS, and Antifa) forbidden?  What about symbols of violent street gangs?  It seems like this should be its own rule, if it is to be enforced as such by the mod team.

it also wouldn't be a hate crime, unless you intended to send a message to a minority or something, in which case if a similar thread was made here it would be taken down for the same "slur" reason, as per the current rules.

Hmm, I still don't see how a picture of a noose can be considered a "slur".  It (the picture of the noose) is not a word, and furthermore it's more of a threat than an insult or disparagement.

Yeah a swastika (when used in reference to Nazis rather than as a symbol of peace- that is, not tilted sideways slightly-) isn't a slur.

It's more or less an implied threat, I guess. That would be the closest you could really get to it.

But slur is simply incorrect. Slurs are verbal, they are words. Slurs are not symbols. Unless you're talking music. Then slurs are a musical symbol. But that's not the same.
