>Please do not use offensive slurs, unless the language in question is topical and relevant to a non-offensive purpose.
Is it okay to merely mention (rather than use) an offensive slur?



File: 1475615755904.png (449.25 KB, 720x720, 1:1, 133459041626_png.png) ImgOps Google

The safe answer is no, do not mention slurs.  Do not use them towards friends as a joke, do not use them even if the person you are speaking to wouldn't take offense, and obviously don't use them to refer to someone in derogatory manner.

Why are you asking?

>Why are you asking?
Because the rule, as written, only prohibits using the word, thereby implying that mentioning it is allowed.  But it seemed that mods take adverse action against mere mention.

Can you get this thing fixed? I can't get it to work, everytime I try an error message comes up saying "error you look like a bot", and I want to at least have a chance to appeal my ban.


File: 1469414353217.jpg (62.65 KB, 640x960, 2:3, image.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google


Hm, we shall look into this. It's been brought up a few times now. Very sorry for that trouble :(

Dear Moony

What can I do? I'm at the point now where getting perma banned seems pretty much inevitable, simply obeying the rules doesn't help because there could always be one I missed or misread, actively going out of my way to make sure I don't break them by attempting to memorize them doesn't help because there are always those moments where I could post or say something that I didn't know counted as rule breaking, for all I know simply posting this plea for help could be that final straw, so that's why I'm turning to you specifically because your the 1 mod I trust the most, please help.

Let's say I do get perma banned, what can I do about it, and as long as I stay away after that does then ban eventually get lifted or an I banned forever?

If I wanted to take the precaution of leaving my email address with you guys as a means of contact off site, is there a way to exchange that with you or the other mods without the other posters knowing that information?

Also the ban appeal text box is broken so even if I got banned I have no hope of even trying to appeal it, can that be fixed?

Please don't ban me for posting this.

Steam, i don't think you're a bad person.

But you -must- follow our rules. And you just… don't. Misreading the rules or missing one is no excuse: there are not so many, and all of them are fairly common sense.

If you get permabanned, you can appeal right away if there's a misunderstanding, and the staff will weigh the merits of your case against your history of offenses.

The staff will then determine what the proper length should be, or whether the appeal should just be denied.

If denied, you can reappeal once every two months, give or take good behavior, whereupon the same process applies.

There is not one single user on site who consistently gets reported more than you, Steam. And, to be very honest, most of those reports tend to be actual rule violations.

Take some time. Consider your previous bans. Consider what others users have told you, about your behavior… and make that change.

i'd like for you to have a good time here. But your good time cannot come at the cost of everypony else's good time, Steam. If your behavior does not change, my hooves are tied.

>there are not so many
Sure but after careful analysis of the rules this morning I came to find that the rules themselves are both too long and use uncommon terms that require me to look them up just to understand the rule said term is in.

Which is why I made myself a summarized version.

I dont have any power. I would have banned him months ago if it were up to me.

Which is probably why its not up to me.



Yeah, anyone who used to post on ponychan and actually knows this guy would do the same

He is just… awful, in every way


Just because someone doesn't understand society doesn't automatically make them awful.

That being said, he refuses to learn from past mistakes, and as Moony has already said, his enjoyment -cannot- come at the cost of others.

I'm in Japan, so I try to monitor things while everyone's asleep. We don't have mods encircling the globe, but the gaps are at least kept to a minimum. We also recently got the report list autorefresh working, so I'll make an effort to leave that open whenever I'm online.

Feel free to poke me or one of the other mods on skype or discord chat if you think we're not paying attention.

Can we add an option for a "view the previous 50 post" if one is "view last 50 post" mode? as an option alongside "view all" or "expand all"?

It would be nice to be able to follow a string of replies in a thread that might go back just beyond the last 50 post without having to expand the entire thread. This would be especially helpful for serial threads which tend to get fairly huge after a while

When I'm browsing a thread, and the autorefresh function ends up having to load more than one post at a time, I get this bug where the order of the last posts are wrong. It's a silly thing, and fixes itself if I F5 the entire page.
However just in case it hasn't been mentioned before, I thought I would. I can't imagine this being an error only on my end.

Thanks for letting us know about it.

We'll look into it, and see if there is something we can do on our end or if it's simply a load timing thing that we can't really avoid.

Again, thanks for letting us know!

Have we figured out what, exactly, makes photos (images taken using the camera built into a phone, for instance) turn sideways when hovered over or enlarged after being posted on the website?

Ive noticed this happen both with my phones camera and my computer's, and I've seen it from other people's photo images as well.

Also this isnt on my end because it was brought to my attention by another user (though I was already aware of it) and its happened on both my computer and phone.

I just want to know if anyone knows WHY this happens and, if so, can anything be done to fix it?

<case in point, this image

My current chrome shows the image correctly.

However, that img{image-orientation: from-image !important;} Could be very useful to put into the CSS

I'd recommend the auto height and width too, since again on firefox, it's taking the dimensions from somewhere else. So it orients the image correctly, but then just stretches it to fit the landscape dimensions…… Which looks awful.

Hm, that's curious. And a tricky one.

This image is part of a class of images that different image-handling programs interpret in subtly different ways, causing problems all over; some programs want to give it a different orientation than others. In particular, the system we use for generating thumbnails appears to use a different interpretation than many browsers, hence this bug.

This problem appears to be properly a bug in firefox, as well as most other browsers. I'll go find out whether a workaround is possible to avoid the problem. >>740 seems to be specific to firefox, but I'll see what I can do.

Uh, there's a problem.

I can't open a thread and reply by clicking on someone's number anymore, and I can't open the thread at a certain post by clicking the "No." next to it.

When I press the number nothing happens and when I press "No." the URL in the address bar changes to the number of the post but it doesn't open up the thread.

This means I have to go all the way up to "Reply" or "Last 50 Posts" and scroll all the way down.

Is that just me or what?

We've had a fun several months, haven't we?

Things are coming up for me right now that make it very difficult to be a moderator. It doesn't have anything to do with anybody on the site or any decisions that have been made. I feel the opposite, in fact. I am confident in our staff to be able to handle everything that may come up without me on the team. I do plan to continue to be around and available, and I do hope to see everybody, but only as friends. I hate to have to resign, but I do it only with fond memories, and optimistic of the future.

Thank you, everybody, for all your friendship and hard work.

I hope you guys know Manley didn't mean anything negative to me. Especially if he says he's gonna "Murder me." He's my friend, we were just teasing each other.

I don't know if anyone reported him or if the moderation acted on their own for the action they took. I don't think it needed to come to the action that happened.
I'm sorry we derailed the thread. If it was causing any discomfort for anyone, I'm sorry. I know Manley wouldn't want to cause anyone discomfort.

Please reconsider the action taken against Manley.
