Whats the maximum .gif size limit?

I found some i really want to use that are like 14meg but wont post (gets timeout error even from good comnection at work) and it looks like i was just able to post a 7 meg one (barely).  Is the limit 10 or something?

Can we increase it a little bit?  Any ideas on maybe a site that might squash them a little for me to get under the size limit? Etc,


Edit:  found a free compressor:

Problem solved.

Got this from 13meg to 7 meg using compression.  It still takes a while to upload but did the trick!


I think WebM would be a better format for something like that.


Webm's are great but I'm stuck in my ways and I love .gifs.

As I said, I compressed the size range I had trouble with and I'm quite happy now with the existing limits.

And thanks.  Webms really are pretty awesome.

Chrome gave me a permaban, but eventually the mods forgot about my ban.

I cannot be the only one who thinks this is a bit too much, right? A friendly reminder would have been fine for Manley. But an official WARNING for a dumb Peter Griffin picture? Don't you think that's a bit excessive?

> I still feel that crime is continuing without action being taken.
Give us like, just a little tiny bit longer please? Like, 15 minutes or so maybe?

>Frankly, you didn't really need to respond, as Braze already did remarkably well.
Yes, well sometimes a guy has to do what he has to do. You don't like being misrepresented, nor do I.


I think this thread has mostly run its course.  I just have a couple more thoughts.

>Unless you want accusations of being an 'ebil nazi', you're going to have to clarify your position against people like Richard Spencer prior to defending them.
The way to do that here is to criticize his actions and ideology, not him as a person.  It is a fine distinction but an important one.

>And I'd want to vocalize that, lest we get people like Butt accusing us of being "Manley apologists".
A rule-abiding way to do that is to exactly disclaim such implications.  E.g., saying something like "I think the warning on post P is unjust because [reasons].  (For clarification, this thread is concerned *only* with post P.  I express no opinion in this thread about whenever any other of M's posts are ban-worthy.  Discussion of M's other posts is off-topic except insofar as they are relevant to whether post P deserved a warning.)"  This is unfortunately longer, but that sometimes is the price to pay.


That's fair. Sorry I did that, then.

So currently mods give warnings/bans to extra-bad posts. I just had a thought that maybe extra-good posts could earn a gold star or something.  Now this is a rather half-baked idea of mine, and probaby it is a bad idea for reasons that will become apparent upon closer examination.  But I just wanted to jot it down before I fall asleep and forget it.

So, if I'm going to be under this so-called "political ban" for how ever many months remain, I'm going to need one of you to specify what is and isn't "political". Because every day I am running the risk of violating the rules by not knowing. Does it only involve things related to the government? If so, which countries government? Since I don't live in Canada, could I discuss Canada's government? Or does it include other topics, and if so, which? For example, I would like to discuss the idea of "censorship" on the internet right now, but I don't know where it falls in these nebulous rules. Help a brother out, what is and isn't allowed?

In my experience, people ascribing negative intentions to others is responsible for a lot of negativity in politics threads.  So I suggest completely avoiding doing that.


>I'm going to need one of you to specify what is and isn't "political".
I'd say anything that a politician might campaign on.  


I actually misread his sentence at the time, and I thought he said "better", not "acceptable", so yes I can somewhat agree.

So, Iara was just banned on /pony/ for one of her silly bandwagon threads.

Sorry if this seems like putting extra pressure on the mods, but could we modify that ban notification to cite and show what reason Iara was banned?

Sorry about that, I should've posted alongside it.

This was their ban message if it helps any though:

"You were warned earlier about infractions to rules 7 and 8.  You then posted "I wasn't planning on deleting my thread tho. I wanted to keep it around because I love being provocative. In all senses." afterwards.  You then posted a thread to try and continue being mean to people, ironically or not that's against the rules.  You are now being banned for 4 hours due to breaking 5, 7, and 8.  We ask that you please stop breaking the rules and be nicer to others. Thank you. -!!Rainbow Dash"


Gonna be bluntly honest: I think my ban was stupid.
I should have been warned/banned for the first thread I made. THe second thread was just a dumb meme bandwagon, that was all made in comedy.

The first one I got a warning on WAS pretty rude tho, and I would have accepted nothing less than a ban from that one.

's feature request: Option to downsize thumbnails of non-OP images.  I don't think this can easily be implemented client-side with just CSS, but JavaScript+CSS can probably get the job done.  Or it could be done server-side.  I could also take a stab at doing this if you give me read-only access to the source code and let me submit a pull request or something.

This is done, finally. It wasn't really that hard to do, but I had to shift a few things around to actually get the time, energy, and will to align to make it happen.

Thanks for the offer, it kinda helped motivate me to carve out the time to do this so you wouldn't have to go in and do it for me, lol. It's nice of you to offer, but I wanted to refactor some things to clean things up a bit. If you want access to the code still, just for funsies or whatever, I don't mind that. Let me know.

I mean, we can scrap the whole site and solve a lot of problems that way too! But I mean, at this point it's probably fine since I doubt anyone even uses Netherlands theme anymore. And if so, they don't need special banners.

Still, I made those silly nl banners and they'll be missed. Stroopwafel.

Hello! You probably know me as Dizzy, and I was a Moderator/Co-Admin on this site for some time. Well, I'm back, but there is some clarity that needs to be clarified before we resume as normal.

I'm not just "Dizzy". I never have been. I suffer from multiple personalities, and treat each personality as though they are a dear sister. Not a single one of us is in charge, and we all carry our own beliefs, convictions, and ideals. We are siblings, but in one mind, as we tell ourselves.

This means the position of Luna will be occupied by one body, which is composed of 7 people and 7 names. We will all do our best to take responsibility for our sisters' actions and maintain transparency.

All 7 of us, separately, are known as Dizzy, Abby, Peppermint, Savvy, Braze, Chroma, and Grace. Our job, like before, is to communicate with the users and determine how they feel about the site and its atmosphere/policies. We expect to see you around the site, and hope you have a good time<3

And also because life ran me over, but I finished the other ones today!

a lost pony wonders if Rule Zero is ever going to be enforced here or if it is just vaporware.

I keep seeing deliberately rude things said in particular by a specific individual and when they are said to me and I say that wasn't nice, I am accused of using Rule Zero as a "bludgeon".  etc.

I have clearly stated on several occasions that my firm opinion is that Rule Zero violation which runs rampant on this site underlies the debacle that led to a complete rules makeover.

imo laze faire enforcement of Rule Zero (or perceived LACK of any enforcement all) causes a lot of unhappiness on an otherwise very happy pony site and I'm sorry Moons and staff, I'm really kind of frustrated about this and I'd like some direct discussion about the issue all by itself, without distraction of other issues.

Well, I directly experienced it and it was what it was.  You can criticize me for not discussing it with you when in fact my attempt to do so was met with indignation and vitriol as you attempted to squash my feelings in the way that you addressed me.  If that's not what happened in your opinion, that's still the factual reality of what I experienced.

Further, as I explained, words directed to another can offend other people for example if I used a racial slur for black people against anyone, it would offend you and I find your ongoing accusation that I am offended because I am wrong and therefore not offended, or not offended and trying to cause trouble as a "white knight", to be in and of itself deeply disrespectful and dismissive of my feelings.  Whether you intend that or not, which I am not assuming.  It's how it comes across to me, and that you cannot rebut because it is simply true.

Fortunately, I seem to be wearing a thicker skin today so I no longer care.  I already regret having said anything, and I accept that it's not going to accomplish anything anyway because no one, least of all you, will hold you accountable for your words followed by circular evasions to any attempt to discuss it with you, unless you are able to reach the conclusion that no one got hurt and you got away with your careless hurtful words yet again.

Notice I said "careless" not deliberate.  Somehow I am convinced that you don't mean to be such an unpleasant person.  But my point has never been that you are unconscionably mean and nasty on purpose (or if it ever was, then I was wrong and I don't remember it anymore), but has been that you hurt my feelings and you demonstrate a lack of concern about having done so, and then attempt to force me to take the blame for what you have done to me.  I dunno, as I've said before maybe it IS all my fault.  I should probably not be here to be so easily damaged.

Regardless, today I don't care anymore.  Other than regretting the debacle that I caused trying to make a stand on this issue.  I know I should just let it roll off, and today it has.  Yesterday, it was different.

I really would appreciate if you at least try to listen to someone whose feelings are hurt and make a genuine attempt to understand how your words were involved instead of alPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


See, that's another problem. You are so emotionally unstable that it's impossible to know what is going to set you off and what you're suddenly going to stop caring about. I can't do what you ask because it's unreasonable. Even someone who doesn't like me like Noonim was able to calmly discuss my comment, while you had a temper tantrum about it. I can't deal with that kind of time. If you can't control yourself enough to interact with other people, I fail to see how that's my fault.

I can't control what you ASSUME my words mean, especially when it's clear you are looking to find the worst. And I can't control how you react. Does no one else see a problem with this?

Recently, the thread >>1975 had been locked, at the time following a post made by !!Scootaloo, that has since been deleted. Unfortunately, the thread had not really run its course, outside of maybe how Mooney's going to have staff preform in the future.

I'm not really sure why the thread was locked overall, and, since the post made by !!Scootaloo was the last I saw, I was quite enraged by the action. It seems that post was deleted, however, so it's possible I simply misunderstood the reasoning for it being locked, as would be apparent by my original OP post. Either way, though, the thread's clearly not run its course, as !!Scootaloo and I were still speaking to one another on the subject, mainly around whether his assertions had any grounding at all.

Initially I had major issue with the deletion, having largely assumed it was done by !!Scootalo to again have the last word, but, if that is not the case, I apologize. I shouldn't've looked at it like that.

Well that seems awfully unfair.  If only one party is guilty, then shouldn't only that party be punished?  I don't think this is like a "it takes two to tango" situation.

>Noonim is also a chronic offender
Huh, would've never known but for this word here, seeing as nobody's ever seen fit to tell me it.

But, I don't think LP's point was that it was Manley's fault. Rather, I think LP's point was that the mods keep dropping the ball in this regard. Very few warnings are ever given, Manley's political ban is incredibly vague and also rather unenforced, and overall, there seems to be a rather sharp lack of communication when it comes to the overarching issue here.
I personally think I'd agree, over all, as it seems Manley didn't know feminism was not an allowed topic. Manley seemed to believe he could talk about most anything unless it pertained to politicians or policy. Which certainly doesn't fit my standard of 'politics' which is why I had always seen it as that he seems to argue what he wants to.

I fear nothing, Rose, least of all what others may think of my words.  That is part of why i've gotten myself so easily in trouble and why it is best that i hesitate to criticize others.

You and I are both rage-a-holics, Rose.  We both have more to fear from our own self-judgment than what others may think of our words.  I felt, as i am certain others do, that the less i interfere with issues like this one, the better.  The temptation to get up in other people's business makes me frown at myself.  It often doesn't turn out well.

I too find arguing with Noonim to be tedious and arguing with Manley is worse.  Which is why he has a restriction in the first place.  That posters on this site are made uncomfortable by such knock-down drag-outs is why Manley should have been warned much sooner, not because he is wrong by definition.

It's been made clear that the political nature of the subject material was not fully understood by the staff.  As a result, i feel my accusations of their negligence are baseless and highlights why my own high-and-mighty judgment of others is rather better kept to myself in most cases.  With more information, my assumptions are often proven wrong.

Anyway i have more things to say but i am just going to drop this now.  I don't want to keep the fires burning.
