Good morning, everypony!

Today, your staff here at Ponyville.us is proud to announce the newest member of our team, !!Applejack! You may know her as our esteemed user and friend, Tracer Bullet!

Tracer graduated from the University of West Dakota at the age of fifteen, and proceeded to receive her master's degree in petroleum engineering shortly thereafter from Brigham Young University, in Provo Utah.

We expect that Tracer's hardboiled demeanor and excellence in petroleum engineering shall be a great asset to Ponyville.us, as we continue our work in making Ponyville both a fun place to be, and a profitable hydrocarbon exploration venture.

Thank you all for your support!! We are so excited to welcome both Tracer and Royal Dutch Shell to our Ponyville.us family.

Dear ponies,

A long, long time ago, on a pony board near you, we set out on an audacious project: the creation of our own OC's! You have already met Sky Serenade, but we are happy to announce that her sister's name has also been officially decided!

Please welcome, Amare Minuet! Sky Serenade is the more lively, silly sister, but Amare Minuet is the more shy and sensitive sister.

i hope you will love her!

i am told, our dear friend Thorax may also have some fun new ponymotes to share!!

i am sorry this has taken so long, but let's do it!!

As you know, we have already introduced our new OC, Sky Serenade! But what of her sister?

Let us do a quick runoff poll - Amare Minuet, Pville "Dot" Undershoe, or Cherry Spangle!

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdQfGy-HCV0Yn9Px6QGO5mXNYsFxylwKm0lwpidHWVqbvmncQ/viewform

After that, we can introduce our cute new PONYMOTES for our OC's!!!

Do you remember our first Ponyville OC?

Here is her sister!! Drawn by community artist Hispanon! Isn't she wonderful?

Her cutie mark is the Chinese word for "heart." It also means feelings, and passion! She has a little heart on her shirt, too!

Let's also think of some fun names for our heart OC! And then, we can vote on both, together!

THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE EQUESTRIAN HEALTH ORGANIZATION

Fillies and gentlecolts, as of April 1st, 2020, Ponyville has officially been placed under quarantine by the Equestrian Health Organization. Apparently, somepony was giving out hugs last night, with blatant disregard for the current pandemic. There's no need to panic! Please tune into this thread, to await further instructions.

We've been informed that users who cooperate with EHO authorities shall be awarded for their efforts.

Good evening, my little ponies! As part of a staff initiative to be more transparent and accessible to users, we are publishing our Ponyville Transparency Report!

https://docs.google.com/document/d/13FQ7OLp1-kcFBNNCB9lfzFKxh-r8StQy3b3nzYHHviE/edit?usp=sharing

We will try to do this monthly! The thread will be open here for a week, and then moved to Canterlot for further commenting.

This month, we welcome the return of !!Trixie, Zeke Roa, who is helping us develop gochan.ponyville.us, as well as assisting us in moderating!

We are also seeing the departure of Savvy, Brazie, Abby, and Peppermint... whom shall be dearly missed. They are all taking a break from administration.

This month, we are also sharing the results of our poll, as well!

Please take a look, dear ponies: what we do, we do for all of you. <3

Good evening, pony friends. I have for you, today, a simple poll, which will help us determine what all of you are looking for, in the site.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdeTUg51-px9YfyszQ8sAlKwaRJEyDLETtxxH-QOGnZnJr3Fw/viewform?usp=sf_link

Please take a look, and answer honestly! The poll is anonymous, and answers will not be shared until the poll is over.

Duplicates, trolls, and vote manipulation will be parsed, as well. We will run the poll for one to two weeks.

If you know any users who are no longer a part of our community, or who only post infrequently, please do also send them this poll!

Let us all do our part in building a better Ponyville together <3

Thank you everypony!

Good evening ponies. Unfortunately, our testing period for Plan A has not yielded the result the staff was expecting.

As such, we are moving forward with Plan B, and issuing bans to a small pool of users who have been found to be particularly uncivil in their conduct on the board.

We will start with just a few bans, and escalate as needs must. Thank you for your understanding. I'm sorry it has come to this measure.

I truly hope this can help to resolve some of the civility issues and reports present on /townhall/.

Excluding First Degree rule violations, bans shall generally escalate in this order. If a ban is given that does not escalate in this order, again excluding First Degree rule violations, that ban must be thoroughly explained by the issuing staff member such that the public can understand that reasoning.

1st Ban: 2 Hours - 4 Hours
2nd Ban: 1 Day - 3 Days
3rd Ban: 1 Week - 2 Weeks

- After Third Ban, probationary period of 3 months permitted, in which if the user commits no further offenses of any kind, the ban is reversed to 2nd Ban, allowing user to receive 3rd ban again and thus another probationary period. 4th Ban and beyond implemented only if user fails to follow terms of probation. Terms of probation are set by staff, pending evaluation of situation. -

4th Ban: 1 Month - 1 Year, or Permaban, depending on circumstances and potential discussion with user
5th Ban: 6 Months - 1 Year, or Permaban

Hello everypony! Thank you all for your attention. Your Ponyville staff has been hard at work thinking up ideas on how to improve the site after considering your feedback, both in individual discussions, and through our recently posted poll.

We'd like to share an initial set of suggested changes for your consideration! Please take a look below:

-Start-
Ponyville Administrative Consistency and Transparency Act
I. The Rules Board

A new board will be created that is not open to public posting. It shall contain the Rules, mirrored from the frontpage, but contain previous site mandates and policy changes as well, such that a clear record can be easily accessed and reviewed by the userbase.

This shall also allow the staff to build a history of decisions to base new decisions on, and allow the userbase to see the consistency in the staff's actions from a much clearer perspective.

II. The Moderator's Hoofbook

We are working on a comprehensive Moderator's Hoofbook that outlines all the duties and responsibilities of a Ponyville moderator. This Hoofbook will go over our enforcement policies, our typical means of response, and give a transparent look at how we go about handling reports, issuing warnings, and interacting with the community.

I'll just copy-paste something i said elsewhere;
"
My problem isn't them not enforcing the letter of the law, that's actually in a lot of ways my fear. There's one thing that gives me trouble, it's vague and up to interpretation rules. Rules that require a lot of personal judgement make it very hard to predict, and it is very easy to accidentally break those rules."

LINK to PROPOSITION:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1F3rN8g4x4pFfNKkaPP_SbxL_XiZu_DOBHxA8cpAN7BI/edit

Good evening, my little ponies! It has come to the attention of the staff that the issue of politics on our humble home has caused quite a bit of distress to the community at large!

Political threads, posts, and derails have caused no small amount of alienation, and can be very disruptive to the posting environment. The staff has heard your concerns, and has come up with what we feel is a good solution towards addressing them.

Politics on Ponyville Proposition 1 [3P1] is a proposed change in policy that will invite greater staff scrutiny when it comes to political posts and threads, substantially escalating the likelihood that these posts will be interpreted as rule-breaking.

At the same time, we believe the implementation of the proposition is such that it will not unduly infringe upon any poster's right of free expression, nor be too burdensome to the undramatic discussion of politics.

To greatly paraphrase [TL;DR]: Politics on Ponyville Proposition 1, future political posts will be analyzed either as being regular posts, or as "political drama." Posters who have a history of political drama, or posts that are very close to that line, will have all future political posts analyzed with heightened scrutiny.

Posters with no posting history at all, such as those posting under fresh IP's, shall have all political posts analyzed with heightened scrutiny, as well.

We have exciting news for everypony! First and foremost, our editing feature is in its final review, and should hopefully be out soon. I know, it's been in the works for a while but I can promise we're in the final stages.

Secondly, we are working on Ponymotes for the site! Little emoticons you can add to your posts. As such, we're opening up submissions for the Ponymote system!

If you can, please submit images you'd like to see as Ponymotes with a height of 27 pixels, and a width of no more than 50!

A special thank you to our Developer !!Thorax, who has been doing incredible work for us since joining!

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?

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

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GxfD-AInh97aarnDm9EXpOJCY9JsTV0Z6a9MUUEDqhY/edit?usp=sharing

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!
