So are we gonna do anything about Steam posting fetish content(again) or is that just what ponyville is now?

I dont have any power. I would have banned him months ago if it were up to me.

Which is probably why its not up to me.



Yeah, anyone who used to post on ponychan and actually knows this guy would do the same

He is just… awful, in every way


Just because someone doesn't understand society doesn't automatically make them awful.

That being said, he refuses to learn from past mistakes, and as Moony has already said, his enjoyment -cannot- come at the cost of others.

I'm in Japan, so I try to monitor things while everyone's asleep. We don't have mods encircling the globe, but the gaps are at least kept to a minimum. We also recently got the report list autorefresh working, so I'll make an effort to leave that open whenever I'm online.

Feel free to poke me or one of the other mods on skype or discord chat if you think we're not paying attention.

Can we add an option for a "view the previous 50 post" if one is "view last 50 post" mode? as an option alongside "view all" or "expand all"?

It would be nice to be able to follow a string of replies in a thread that might go back just beyond the last 50 post without having to expand the entire thread. This would be especially helpful for serial threads which tend to get fairly huge after a while

When I'm browsing a thread, and the autorefresh function ends up having to load more than one post at a time, I get this bug where the order of the last posts are wrong. It's a silly thing, and fixes itself if I F5 the entire page.
However just in case it hasn't been mentioned before, I thought I would. I can't imagine this being an error only on my end.

Thanks for letting us know about it.

We'll look into it, and see if there is something we can do on our end or if it's simply a load timing thing that we can't really avoid.

Again, thanks for letting us know!

Have we figured out what, exactly, makes photos (images taken using the camera built into a phone, for instance) turn sideways when hovered over or enlarged after being posted on the website?

Ive noticed this happen both with my phones camera and my computer's, and I've seen it from other people's photo images as well.

Also this isnt on my end because it was brought to my attention by another user (though I was already aware of it) and its happened on both my computer and phone.

I just want to know if anyone knows WHY this happens and, if so, can anything be done to fix it?

My current chrome shows the image correctly.

However, that img{image-orientation: from-image !important;} Could be very useful to put into the CSS

I'd recommend the auto height and width too, since again on firefox, it's taking the dimensions from somewhere else. So it orients the image correctly, but then just stretches it to fit the landscape dimensions…… Which looks awful.

Hm, that's curious. And a tricky one.

This image is part of a class of images that different image-handling programs interpret in subtly different ways, causing problems all over; some programs want to give it a different orientation than others. In particular, the system we use for generating thumbnails appears to use a different interpretation than many browsers, hence this bug.

This problem appears to be properly a bug in firefox, as well as most other browsers. I'll go find out whether a workaround is possible to avoid the problem. >>740 seems to be specific to firefox, but I'll see what I can do.

Uh, there's a problem.

I can't open a thread and reply by clicking on someone's number anymore, and I can't open the thread at a certain post by clicking the "No." next to it.

When I press the number nothing happens and when I press "No." the URL in the address bar changes to the number of the post but it doesn't open up the thread.

This means I have to go all the way up to "Reply" or "Last 50 Posts" and scroll all the way down.

Is that just me or what?

We've had a fun several months, haven't we?

Things are coming up for me right now that make it very difficult to be a moderator. It doesn't have anything to do with anybody on the site or any decisions that have been made. I feel the opposite, in fact. I am confident in our staff to be able to handle everything that may come up without me on the team. I do plan to continue to be around and available, and I do hope to see everybody, but only as friends. I hate to have to resign, but I do it only with fond memories, and optimistic of the future.

Thank you, everybody, for all your friendship and hard work.

I hope you guys know Manley didn't mean anything negative to me. Especially if he says he's gonna "Murder me." He's my friend, we were just teasing each other.

I don't know if anyone reported him or if the moderation acted on their own for the action they took. I don't think it needed to come to the action that happened.
I'm sorry we derailed the thread. If it was causing any discomfort for anyone, I'm sorry. I know Manley wouldn't want to cause anyone discomfort.

Please reconsider the action taken against Manley.

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.
