There used to be a link that led to a list of the tags that could be used on the home page. It's possible that I missed it but is there a link to that list somewhere on the site still?

With the closure of Ponychan, we have been very privileged to see the arrival of many friends, both old and new.

I hope that our community here at Ponyville will greet our new friends with open, and loving hearts.

If you are a new poster, please do take a look at our rules, located on the home page! The rules are generally pretty lenient, and reports are handled with both a gentle hoof and on a case by case basis.

For the time being, we'll be more lenient with regards to the rules as well, as everyone settles in.

Please also take a look at our options on the top left! If you're more familiar with Ponychan's thumbnails, for example, the miniaturize option might be to your liking!

We have some great themes to try, and a series of delightful ponymotes, too! :trixie2:

If you have any questions, or would like to introduce yourself, please feel free to use this thread too! We are so happy to have you join our humble home.

Congrats. Looks good. I looked at couple posts here and there but I don’t know if I will actively be on there because certain discourse is irritating me, haha.  Good job though


Why no "m"?


Obviously it is registered in Colombia.

My Dearest Ponies,

I'm pleased to announce that after a lot of time and thought, I have decided to take our humble home in a bold new direction.

I've made sure to make this decision without consulting or warning any staff members, or community members, which I believe is consistent with pony image board values.

Our Ponyville home is a humble place, proud to be exactly what it is, but the one thing it lacks is very substantial activity!

To fix this, effective immediately, we will be embracing a bold new direction:


You may have heard of this so-called "anime." It's short for Japanese animation, and is famous around the world for its flashy visuals and oriental style!

Our imageboard will be promoted across the anime loving world, with advertisements on different anime subreddits and communities, including Crunchyroll, r/anime_irl, and other such places.

Hello, little ponies! It's time to announce our poll results!!


The results, i think, should be surprising! We had a clear winner for Cookie Crumbs' OC, but a tie for Hispanon's! Not to mention, several honorable mentions!

We may have to do a run-off poll, to see what Hispanon's OC will be!

Hello everypony!! Your Ponyville staff thought it might be fun to commission some OC's to represent the site, from our different resident Ponyville artists.

In this way, our team hopes to give back to the  community by supporting your art, while also having being able to do something cool for everypony!

Here is our first Ponyville OC, drawn by our dear friend, the talented Cookie Crumbs.

What should her name be?? Please offer a suggestion below! We will then host a poll, and pick together!! Isn't that fun?

Please also keep an eye out for her sister, who i think shall be drawn by our friend Hispanon!

How about Livelong June? Taken from a poem by Emily Dickinson, which I've seen quoted by Moony before:

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you--nobody--too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise--you know!

How dreary--to be--Somebody!
How public--like a frog--
To tell one's name--the livelong June--
To an admiring Bog!

You've got the wrong chan!

Livelong June is super cute, i like that too

i especially like the connotation. Ponyville is a home for self-feeling nobodies where you can be somebody who is loved.

My post was supposed be the first post to check 1000000, and I did it before the post was even made. That’s pretty cool.


>honestly, maybe ^^ i was thinking like a banner that said "1 Million Posts!"

I like this idea.

Welcome everygem, to the new face of our beloved home! Now, I know this seems like a pretty serious change, but let's talk about it together!

With the growing popularity of Steven Universe, the staff and key members of our community have decided to change the course of the site a bit, and remake Ponyville into Steven Universe Ville!

It's an exciting time for all of us, I know :). We'll be keeping the /pony/ name and the ponyville URL for now, but you can expect significant changes as we roll out a wonderful new Steven Universe site for all of you gems out there. <3

Welcome, one and all, to Steven Universe Ville! Don't forget your Gemsonas!

Good evening, pony friends! Your staff has been very hard at work, designing a new experience for the community, here on Ponyville.


We understand there's a lot of controversy about intense discussions on the website. Some users would really like a place to have in-depth debates about various controversial subjects.

Others come to /pony/, however, to find some relief from the day to day difficulties that these subjects can bring up!

/townhall/ is a forced anonymous board that is designed for debates, dialectics, and discussions of a serious nature, with its own tone, and its own rules!

This means as well that we'll be expecting that sort of content to migrate over to townhall, though of course less-serious debates and discussions are always welcome on /pony/.

If you think your discussion or debate might end up in a shouting match, try bringing it over to /townhall/ for some nice, rational discussion.

Try it today, and let us know what you think ^^ We'll be adding it to the top bar later in the coming week.

What an excellent idea!

Only.... er...... there are names there so.... that kind of defeats the anonymity angle?  Which is a massive shame as anonymity breeds honesty.

I think it's mostly to keep track of who is talking in a particular thread.

If I am remembering right, I think the name changes when you enter a new thread.


They do. You have a thread-specific animal name.

Welcome Ponies, Welcome All...
To our magical Ponyville Masquerade Ball!

We've got a new board, open today.
If you enjoy it... perhaps it will stay.
But for how long? We cannot say.
Happy April the 1st Day.

Continuing discussion link! Thank you all for your input, and for discussing with me.

i am hoping that we have reached a good resolution, for all posters here.

Please keep your eyes out for the incoming advertising rule change and for the NSFW switch, which i hope will be the second piece of this puzzle, and allow for our users, all of our users, to feel safe and at home.

It's time to vote for the Ponyville Administrative Consistency and Transparency Act



We'll leave this up for a week. At the end of the week, we shall count the votes, and implement the proposals that have received majority approval.

If you are looking for more regulations, or changes, don't worry: as you can see, rules aren't set in stone. The rules will still be tuned, as time goes on, if the rules require tuning.

Thank you all for voting!

Hello everypony! I do hope you're having a wonderful Sunday!

I have a very special announcement for you all today. We're adding a new Administrator to the team, who we hope will be able to assist our community moving forward.

Our dear friend Starshine has joined our team, under the Administrator tag !!Coco Pommel. Starshine has been a community member since the very beginning of the pony fandom, and has served as a guiding voice in the community for just as long!

Please give her a warm welcome <3. Thank you all for your attention!

In fact, I already do use it, to post on the other pony imageboard and lurk this one. It's mostly just posting here that's borked, and also a caching issue.

I made a boo-boo.:shy2:
Actually, nevermind, I was told how to sort the problem out myself.
I accidentally made a thread in the wrong board, so I deleted it and made it here.
