Uh, looks like I'm a little late to the party here, but I just finally found out this existed and, well, I'm pretty lost and confused. The more I look around, the more confused I get. I've looked for some kind of history of how this came to be and I'm coming up largely blank. A few years ago, I probably would have been all for a Moonychan, but with the fandom shrinking, Fen presumably still at the helm, and mlpchan having relatively recently merged back in, hopefully with others to follow, I can't help but be utterly confused. It almost sounds like some crazy idea of Zamoonda's rather than something that could be reality, and yet here we are.10 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
What I can gather so far is /pony/ is more or less one of the more popular forms of /oat/, a general discussion board, and then you've got a /site/ and a /co/, but that's it. I'm baffled as to why there'd come to be another pony-related imageboard at this point, and I wonder about whether it'll be healthy or not for the fandom as a whole. So, could someone enlighten me as to the history and reasoning? It's not exactly a trivial effort or expense to get a functional and responsive chan - which you appear to have - up like this, so someone involved must have had some kind of compelling reason. Especially with the SFW thing, it looks redundant at first glance, so I assume I'm missing something. Perhaps some bit of drama, or I hope, some much better reason. What should I know about this place?
Oh, and it feels a little silly for one person to have both a mod and admin tag. Just sayin'. Though it isn't the first time. And no Cadence? Oh, and, is there much of a gamer population here? Can I expect to see most of the familiar faces both places for now?

Personally kinda feel some of the rules aren't really too enforced around here. Not that it's a bad thing, but it just seems kinda weird to have these set rules and not actually enforce them too much.
I was really surprised when I started posting sharks and not a single mod said a single thing about the suggestiveness of some of them. I guess it's because they pretty strictly follow the no NSFW rule, but, come on, some of these are questionable. Not that I'm saying the mods should react heavily to me posting them, just pointing out the weird dichotomy.
As for this place, well, it seems Moony wanted a place for people to go and basically just be nice to each other and not have to deal with imageboard culture. I think it's worked. No memes really forced themselves into this place (yet), people are generally and genuinely nice to each other, insults are uncommon and usually just for fun, and shitposting is kept to a bare minimum.
