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!

Can we also have the option to submit a double-resolution image (height exactly 2*27=54px and weight ≤ 100px) for phone and other high-DPI devices?

Oh god ponymotes, everyone at the MLParena uses those WAY too much.

what about width, are they supposed to be square? I will make a bunch of ponymotes

I don't think the double height works very well. I inserted that fluttershy into my framework and it doesn't look super good. I would probably want to keep it to 27px.

I want to keep the height consistent to keep the pages looking alright, but you have flexibility with the width. Just don't make it absurdly wide.

I'm not the decision maker for what is accepted or not, but at a minimum I think we need permission from the image owner to add it to the site. So, just grabbing any ol' fun icons from the internet might not work.


>I don't think the double height works very well. I inserted that fluttershy into my framework and it doesn't look super good.
Can't you set the height to 27px with CSS?  That way, it's 27 pixels high on normal devices at 100% zoom, but you can get more detail on high-resolution displays or when you zoom > 100%.

>a minimum I think we need permission from the image owner to add it to the site.
The Python snake logo is open-source, I'm pretty sure.  And I don't think 4chan will mind if we borrow their party hat.

>Can't you set the height to 27px with CSS?
Ah, I see. You'll have to forgive me, my only frontend experience is from the maybe 1 month of putzing around this website's code (maybe you should be a Dev, you certainly are more knowledgeable about all this junk than me).

Anyway, it should be easy to do that, no problem.

I'll leave the selection to Moony and the other admin people. Though I do really like snek.

>Can't you set the height to 27px with CSS?

Cool, it works. Now I guess it doesn't matter as much what height the icons are. I would just make sure that they are tested to look good at 27px height.

Nah that sounds pretty cool, like friendship with /r/mylittlepony (just steal all theirs) :p

heya cloud! that's not a bad idea… i suppose we could ask r/mylittlepony

we have a pretty good relationship with them, and we've collaborated in the past!

buuuuut… i'd also love for us to have our own silly set of emotes ^^


I was only being kinda silly, but if there's a relationship with them then that's one way to make it easy if we don't come up with enough of our own ^^

Totally understand the idea of having ones with unique character for this place though!

Double height being squished to normal height is a regular feature for most sites now because of double resolution screens (such as mine). The html and CSS won't be that difficult.

And the cool thing about using a BBCode type system for emojis (such as :emoji: ) is that you can quickly add any number of emojis that you want to the BBCode processing.


Who are you on Skype?

How many months does final review usually take? :^)

Using other pony related imageboards as reference… 5-24 months?


File: 1505185315697.png (258.16 KB, 600x700, 6:7, eeeeeep.png) ImgOps Google

that's a good question. and honestly, it's taken way, way longer than necessary.

we're at a choke point for final review for literally everything the dev team has been working on - from the ponyemote system, to thread editing.

And i am trying to rectify that. In the meantime, i'm really sorry for getting hopes up. We are all volunteers, so we are trying our best in the limited time we have :c

It'll happen when it happens. Don't worry.
I don't think anyone is unhappy about the time and effort put in by all you guys.

this sticky has become a meme

This meme should have stayed a dream.

Anything that anyone not on the Dev team can do to help speed up things.


Depends on what you want to accomplish. If all you want is an edit button, the more rude and demanding you are, the more pressure it would put on the staff/dev team to act. If you want an edit feature and nobodies to feel stressed or bad about it, then you can't do much more than be patient.


I want happy developers who work on things as a team because they find it rewarding and fun to do so.

How do I get that?


I think you already have that. The problem isn't about attitude, but time and priorities.

Now, if you want to volunteer to go over to each of the Dev's houses and do their laundry and cleaning, maybe we are getting on to something you can do to help.

Hmmmmm, do you actually own a cute maids outfit?

If so, please send your application and a few saucy maid pics to Moony and he'll see if you are ponyville staff material.

The edit thread needs more Twilight Sparkle.

I hope the edit feature's functionality will be well thought out and not contribute to any misunderstandings.
