Canterlot serves as both our moderator board and a site issues board here on Ponyville. You're more than welcome to interact with our staff, and watch how we discuss and handle certain issues on site.

Unlike /cartoon/, /pony/, or any other boards that may follow, Canterlot should remain a fairly serious board. The rules will be enforced much stricter here on Canterlot.

While some generally silliness is expected and encouraged, please also try to keep posting to the other boards.

I hope we'll get to see you around /Canterlot/ now and then! I know our staff ponies will just love spending time with you here in our little staff room.

I think the current thread has gone far enough. Instead of arguing with people in it about why people shouldn't be rude while arguing in a thread that has already seen enough arguing… it should be brought up here.

So, the problem here is that people can't seem to stay civil in political threads.

The solutions proposed are as follows;

1) Ban politics altogether. Not really a fan of this one and it's more like a last ditch solution if nothing else works.

2) Make a board specifically for Politics, a sort of containment board, if you will. This is only a bit of a better option, really, as people have brought up that it would either draw traffic away from /pony/ OR would just end up dead anyways. Which would solve the problem of politics thread in /pony/ but… not in the best way, in my opinion.

and finally 3) Make sure there's always a moderator around to make sure people don't dissolve into insults. To keep things civil. Anyone who can't keep things civil should no longer be allowed to post in politics threads.

Anyways, those are three options that I, and others, have come up with. Anyone else with ideas should post here as well.

Please refrain from "Oh just ignore the threads, you don't have to post in them" response. I'm looking at you, Mondo, as you seem to just love that one, regardless of how unsuited it is to the ongoing discussion.

So, I can't much come off being anon since I've never posted with a name other than anonymous. If you want to discriminate against that, I can't help it. But, you shouldn't get the impression that I'm a user you know who is hiding their identity for the sake of this thread.

It's your thread, so I wouldn't derail it if you asked me not to, but does it much matter? I'm pretty much the only one who is both looking at canterlot and who cares enough to talk to you about the issue. Not like I can distract any other users away from the topic you are trying to discuss when there aren't any other posters.

Serious question, why don't you apply to be a mod? If you don't like something, the best way to fix it is from the inside.

Well then that's unfortunate.

While that is true and I agree, I still think Canterlot threads should always stay on topic and suffer no derailments.

I've thought about it, believe me, but not only do I simply not want to work with some of the people (one of the people to be exact) on the mod staff currently but I'm also not that active and don't want to spend more effort on this place than I already do.

Coming from someone who now has moderator experience, it's actually rather difficult to police political threads and keep them civil.  Not saying you can't, but finding a ground that makes everyone happy is the hardest.  But, that's the life of a mod.

I think giving them a firm and clear verbal warning is what's best, I think.  If they do not comply, then you can further decide if a ban is necessary.  Just having a moderator present sometimes is enough to deter inflammatory posting.  You don't have to be pushy about enforcing rules; just let the user know they exist.  Usually simple communication and working things out goes along way.

Not trying to backseat mod or anything.  Just giving some advice because you guys are our brothers too.

Please an option to turn off YouTube embeds, or even better, do what 4chan does and load them only when the user specifically clicks a link to open the embed.  YouTube embeds are bloody slow when a page has a lot of them.

Update: It's definitely not the encoding.

In-browser:

In Wireshark, the non-ASCII characters in that same field are
\342\230\273, \342\233\260, \342\231\277

I don't remember exactly how it works, but in Firefox, you can watch a HTTP transaction with everything sent in it, and then resend it. If you do that, you can verify that Ponyville doesn't require the browser to read some kind of randomly generated anti-bot string.

I hadn't forgotten about this. Having looked at it a couple of times now though and I'm not sure I can say much more than you already know. Some of the problem is that PVille mangles what you paste into it itself. So even your pale moon request is invalid if I just copy what's pasted in >>1169

Using valid tokens from a request I've captured myself though, there doesn't seem to be any problems in the content or header of your flutter app though. It really just does seem to be in either how you're scraping or sending the tokens. It's worth noting each thread has it's own set of tokens. You can't use tokens for one thread to post to another.

I doubt I could do any more without knowing how your app or the website functions more intimately or being smarter. If you're still having difficulty, I recommend using a HTTP proxy yourself like Burp Suite or OWASP ZAP. You should be able to configure your browser or device to point to these proxies running on your computer so you can test your app on your phone and still capture and edit the traffic. Wireshark is far too low level and doesn't have to tools to easily edit and resend http traffic.

I light of his recent thread >>489735

Should someone who is clearly unhinged, delusional, and detach from reality as Steam Twist be allowed to post on the board? With the actions we all failed to talk him out of in this thread it's quite possible he's going to slip even further into insanity and become (even more) disruptive and dangerous. It's already becoming a hindrance to the board as a whole.

I feel like we should be discussing this, rather than ignoring it.

I was warned for >>>/pony/507860, and specifically Rules 6 and 11 were mentioned.  Respectfully, I would like to note that my post clearly does not even come close to violating Rule 11; not a single word in my post is even arguably an offensive slur.  

Rule 6 is: "Don't shitpost. We define shitpost as: threads that are purposely created to add nothing to the site, regurgitating spamlike content which is low in creativity, and with potential ill intentions that contribute negatively to the site."

Let me address each criterion.
"threads that are purposely created to add nothing to the site": The post was a reply, not a thread, and furthermore, at least IMHO, it was not completely devoid of humor value.  I realize that the site staff might disagree and hold that the post had zero or negative value, but that is inherently a very subjective judgement and little guidance is available in regards to how the site staff measures the value of posts.

"regurgitating spamlike content which is low in creativity": I think it should be fairly clear from my recent post history that I haven't been spamming or regurgitating posts substantially similar to that post.

"with potential ill intentions that contribute negatively to the site": I don't know how you are trying to infer my intentions, but I can assure they that they weren't ill.  It is apparent now that others didn't find my post as funny as I did, but that constitutes only a failure of judgement on my part, not ill intentions.

So, I would like to request additional guidance on what exactly the site staff finds objectionable about my post.  I realize it's not one of the finest posts on the site, and likely it's even in the bottom 10% of posts, but I don't see how it is even skirting the lines of the rules.

>However, anyone who argues in favor of nazism is implicitly (and sometimes explicitly) supporting racism and genocide.
I disagree.  Hitler tried to hide the death camps from most of the Nazi rank-and-file civilian population.  Why would he do that if they supported genocide?  The answer is that even most Nazi party members would not approve of genocide.  And while Nazism does have a tenet that some races are objectively superior to others, some people might subscribe to the core politico-economic tenets of National Socialism while rejecting the racism.

>Nazism 100% is [hateful].
Not necessarily.  One might simply believe that certain groups need to be removed for the greater good of the nation, just like sickened livestock are destroyed to avoid spreading contagion.  

Anyhow, basically I've just been playing devil's advocate.  If someone comes here posting Nazi symbols in a way that suggests endorsement of Nazism, there's a 95%+ chance he's shitposting in violation of Rule 6.

Nobody is saying that communism is better than Nazism. Communists committed enumerous atrocities.

The hammer and sickle might very well be the political symbol of a rightfully despised dogma. But the swastika is a universally understood symbol of hatred.

>>1133
this is the post that i feel makes the difference. if someone comes in to sh*tpost with communist iconography, they too will meet the same ignominious warning.

Nazi iconography is particularly known for its association to sh*tposting though, and the swastika in particular is a very notorious symbol of hatred.

I investigated this further, and the root cause seems to be a deficiency in the CSS Specification Standard in regards to floats.  A workaround is as follows: In the div[class='body'] element, find the longest line and, at the end of it, add a new span element of the form:

    <span style="display: inline-block; width: 430px;"></span>

Replace 430px with the maximum width (including border, padding, and margin) of the div[class='post-file'] element (i.e., the element with float='left').  For YouTube embeds, this is 430px.  For OP images, it is 285px.  For reply images, it is 255px.

I don't expect this to fix all problems, but this could help.

When people start to go TOO off-topic with threads such as this : http://ponyville.us/pony/res/495892.html, they should be given a warning. Not a ban. Just a warning. Some off-topic is fine because that's natural but perhaps in general replies should be less negative and less arguing about people on a personal-level if it was not even the purpose of the thread to become personal.

It would appear that this keeps happening and solves next to nothing. Steam of course would have to follow the same rule here.

Dear Steam Twist, do you have the slightliest grasp for what is SFW and what is NSFW?
Because you should seriously study these basic concepts before crying to the staff to fix something that's not broken.

With that said, I'm open for dialoge too, if you have any further questions, after of course, using your best buddy google to do a little research on the terms above.

What's a pole? You mean, like, Polish people? I don't think nationality has much to do with what we were talking about. I didn't say white people were monsters. I said people who voted for Trump were (which, as I said, is a view I've since amended and tempered). So if you aren't American, you couldn't possible be included in that group.

And I think the confusion here is that he assumed I thought "being a racist" is included in the "crimes committed" Which was not my intent. I meant more along the lines of, people who have committed hate crimes, not just those with racist views. But the answer I gave was a bit vague, I'll admit that.

Yes, I mean Polish people, who until fairly recently were an ethnic minority in the Soviet Union, and treated quite badly. Watching what you say due to fear of secret police is something that remains a very real memory there.

In any case, the point here is that if you want to be accurate, you'd be wise to say non-white American. Try and adopt a non-Amerocentric viewpoint, at least around here.

With the way you worded it, yes, that's what he/she thought, and I cannot blame them for that. If you're going to debate someone on such a hot-button issue, you need to be clear. Otherwise I open the site and see almost an entire thread being reported because there just seems to be people fighting and getting nasty with one another. Then that nastiness looks as though it's going to start getting spammed across the front page.
