Thats a lot of mods

lel asking to be a mod was like your 3rd post on ef.


sh-shuddup… I like helping chans out when I can. i know they always could use an extra hand or 2

Zeke can barely keep up with the post spam on Lunachan let alone mod 2 sites at o….

Almost kept a strsight face xD


Moony used Mod positions to get people on board with this. It's pretty obvious.

he doesn't do anything on Ponychan either

my moderators are volunteers. Many asked me what they could do to help! we're here together to make a better site.

Zeke's been a big help too, as it is. Perhaps he helps more when he feels inspired to?

yes, that's me. mr. vain. c:

Comments like this dont really help the impression a few people have that this place is in direct competition to ponychan.

At this point I'm starting to find it hilarious, since people tell me things, expect me to be mad and i'm just like "Okay thats nice."

You're right. That sort of talk helps no one. It's just my impulse to counter snark with snark. Not very befitting an administrator of a website though, i think.



can i counter with snark instead

Well, I'm back from Burning Man and things are already looking interesting.

I've been offered mod and admin positions before on would-be pony imageboards. This isn't an attempt to brag. I turned them down because I don't want to be part of a site that is just another splinterchan aiming to displace Ponychan. It creates unnecessary drama and is ultimately a waste of time, because nothing is going to displace Ponychan.

The reason that I joined is that when Moony told me about his idea, he talked about every online pony community except for Ponychan. There are a lot of bronies out there who have never heard of our little corner of the tubes, and we want to find out what would happen if we reach out to them and invite them to try a chan. Form a new group. See what happens.

Maybe this will succeed. Maybe it will fail. But there is something kind of exciting about trying something new to see if it sticks.

I was actually pretty hesitant getting on board with this site, until it was made very clear that we were trying to distant ourselves from common chan/imageboard culture (otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten on board). I wasn't made a staff member until like… 2 months after I backed it, and that was only done after I had already done quite a bit for the group.

That's where my spirit's at. I figure I haven't got much to lose, so I may as hell help where I can and see how things go.


So Moony , where is PinkiePipes mod?


Don't mind me, testing something


Moony is ignoring me :c


Holy crap, Bleeding Raindrops is a mod!
Best mod team.

Ive noticed Moony doing his normal thing of ignoring any posts that are confrontational or selective reading lol. Ah , Tim , never change.


I found that pretty cool, too. Bleeding's always been one of my favorite peeps.

why do we save threads in /rock/?
why not just delete them?


Why not just click 'last 50'?


Havent seen some of those posters in a while, was getting worried that they had stopped posted on ponichan.
As long as they do their work here, Im happy knowing that they didnt leave the fandom.

Originally, the board allowed for posters to continue discussions in-thread while removing the post from general publication. However, now it mainly serves as a convenient way for us to keep track of deleted threads.


We're coming out of the woodwork!


How long will this one last? Typically you don't stick with these sorts of projects long.


File: 1443407391295.png (56.41 KB, 279x320, 279:320, mlfw5066_small.png) ImgOps Google


I'm judging that you are basing this on my six months with Ponychan. There were particular factors that resulted in my inability to remain with the team that I choose not to talk about (for the record, the Ponychan staff are all great people and it wasn't the result of any kind of conflict with them). Won't be an issue here.

If by some chance you are talking about Discordchan, that was never meant to be a long-term project. That was an elaborate joke because I wanted to see what would happen if I made an imageboard where everyone was a mod. It was clearly unsustainable, which was the point of the whole thing.

I'm not sure what else you're basing your assertion on, but I've been managing and moderating a community that I created on reddit for the past four years, so I don't just leave when I get bored.

I hope that this has alleviated some of your concerns.

Anon never said you got bored, only that you typically dont stick with projects long.

Which you dont, even i've said that.

File: 1443454421532.png (476.49 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, Twilight_talking_to_her_fr….png) ImgOps Google


The point of the example was to show a project that I have moderated for four years.

So you have one data point where I stuck around for six months and then had to leave because of circumstances, and one data point where I have been there for four years and am still active with the mod team.

I'm just not seeing how this makes a pattern. If anyone has any other events in my history that concern them, let's talk through your concerns. I don't see how what Anon presented adds up to me being likely to bail on Ponyville.us, though.


I have another one in mind, but it's kind of personal and I don't think the other person it involves would appreciate me bringing it up.



Would you like to talk on Skype about it?


Nah, forget it. I was just curious.


i sure hope this doesnt lead to Moony neglecting his skype friends…..oh wait i'm feeling it already

Gallant Shield, !!Applejack, has retired from his moderator position as tragic, serious family concerns have arisen which will be keeping him off the internet for the foreseeable future.

If you can, please give your thoughts and prayers to Gallant in his difficult time.

I guess its time i apolagised to Moony so - Sorry Moony.

I promised i wont be an asshat on your chan anymore :3


I still don't understand why Moony is both an admin and a mod.

Also, did Bleeding Raindrops change their name or something? I don't think I've seen anyone post with that name in months.

Brings up another good question I've never had answered, depsite asking it several times.

Why are any of the mods, well, mods? The process of how they were chosen is still shrouded in mystery, and I don't think it's too much to ask how they were chosen.


because they were in Moony's "posters with attitude" secret rebel chat

> Brings up another good question I've never had answered, depsite asking it several times.

I'm sorry that you haven't had that question answered. I'm pretty sure that I know why, but I just need to double-check with Moony to make sure that I'm correct and then I'll let you know here. It doesn't change the way that the modteam functions, though. Pretty sure it's just that he likes Fluttershy, but that a !!Fluttershy admin wouldn't make sense thematically with the whole "alicorn/deity admin" thing.

> Why are any of the mods, well, mods? The process of how they were chosen is still shrouded in mystery, and I don't think it's too much to ask how they were chosen.

It's not too much at all to ask that. The mods were chosen based on our previous knowledge of their personalities and their dedication for helping build and run the site. Much like any first-time team, the process for adding people was a lot less structured than what you would see as the team grows.

However, I will say that the mods were not simply chosen by Moony, as the admin team talked through suggested users to ensure that we were all comfortable with having them on the team. Each decision was a collective decision.

Just followed up with Moony. What I said was part of the explanation, but to put it in his words, "another part of it was that, being an Admin, it isn't always comfortable to use the big, authoritative admin tag to do littler things."

He also said that if people think it's best that he stick with one role, he'd be happy to do that. It really doesn't affect how we operate at all, though, so we've never brought it up as an issue.

I'm not the one who cared about Moony being Admin and Mod, I already deduced why that was.

But thanks for finally asking the mod question. It was just bugging me. Unlike SOME people I didn't just assume it was all Moony's doing of just choosing friends.

I feel like maybe Bleeding Raindrops is the anonymous Sonata poster? I posted the link to my Fimfiction page in a thread with him and a user with the name Bleeding Raindrops followed me, so I assume it was him.

Glad that I could help, and thanks for giving us the benefit of the doubt. If you ever have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer them. We don't have anything to hide, except for the fact that all of us are actually dogs that have learned to type.


So does this mean that admins do everything mods do and more? What even are the differences between the various kinds of staff?

Oh, okay. Sorta weird to have someone be a mod under a name they don't actually use, but whatever. At least they are still around.

Admins here are basically mods that take point when necessary. We act as mods, but accept a bit of additional responsibility for making sure that the site runs smoothly. Not that the rest of the mods don't, but we expect ourselves to take more initiative in facilitating policy discussion and site improvement. Some of us handle costs, as well.

See the attached image for a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the Ponyville admin team. Discord is the pancakes.

He doesn't use a name at all. The name field is blank, it doesn't even say anonymous.

No wonder nothing ever gets done.


Okay, thanks.

I'm saying that to me it feels strange to have a mod listed under a name they don't use. If he wants to go by a blank name field he should be listed as !!Scootaloo - Blank Name Field Sonata Poster or something similar so that he is actually identifiable.

Oh, I'm not disagreeing with you, just pointing out why they used the name. It'd be better to change it, though. It's important to know who the mods are.

I could use my name if you all really wanted me to, I've just gone so long without it the very lack of a name has become my self identity.

Yeah, that was me


File: 1454121383979.jpg (84.81 KB, 480x639, 160:213, sonata wan kenobi.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

I am curious. I understand the need for transparency, but not the need for publicity of the identity of moderation staff. Could you explain why it is important to you?

I am a cat, thank you.


I mean, if you'd prefer not to use a name at all you could just be listed as Sonata anon on the mod list. Whatever name or identity or whatever you wanna use is fine really, just as long as it's on the mod list. Mostly I just thought you'd like died or something, so I figured I'd ask.

Well, to be honest I did for a while. Between late november to early january I was dealing with some personal issues and stayed off the site completely, but I've figured some stuff out and I at least monitor things if I don't post.

Moony says I should at least use the name on Canterlot though


I know you're actually here now and nameless sonata is now on the mod list, so feel free to do whatever.

So hey to the other admins and mods here besides moony:

seems like you guys have a problem with me in general. I'm not trying to start a war or nothin but I do want to fix anything I can. I would say it's been a long time and I'm a different person when I mod/admin something. Just to point out, I am a fair admin/mod at places I look after like my DiscordApp pony group. I try my best not to abuse my power. I was told that I am "unstable."

Then vs now. I handle stuff a lot better than I did. but if you are willing to talk one on one with me, I would like to do so, specially with the Discordapp group. Moony likes the idea. Take a chance and come chill with us. If you are a mod here, You become a mod there too. And don't worry, I will never abuse my power any where. That's not me. Once you abuse it, you show who you really are. I would only do so if it's needed and no one else would basically

You know how to get ahold of me.

Whatever you do, do not make Tarra a mod.

He just banned me for disagreeing with him.

Watch out next time he tries to get any power, he can't handle it.

I disagree with less people.

That would work better than Tarra.

Or make me a mod!


You as a mod would be nuts lol.

To be honest, I didn't realize that I was still on the staff list after leaving when I first started gender transition. I'm surprised to find my name still there.

I'm happy to consult on stuff, but I don't expect to be active again anytime soon. I apologize if I gave the impression that I would be.
