How do I put text in a "hide" box?  I remember there being a stickied thread here on /canterlot/ with all the formatting codes but I can't find it now.

Canterlot serves as both our moderator board and a site issues board here on Ponyville. You're more than welcome to interact with our staff, and watch how we discuss and handle certain issues on site.

Unlike /cartoon/, /pony/, or any other boards that may follow, Canterlot should remain a fairly serious board. The rules will be enforced much stricter here on Canterlot.

While some generally silliness is expected and encouraged, please also try to keep posting to the other boards.

I hope we'll get to see you around /Canterlot/ now and then! I know our staff ponies will just love spending time with you here in our little staff room.

A'ight, if Ponychans /site/ won't help me with this issue (though probably better off asking on /oat/ or any of their other boards), I'll ask here.

So, I know how to clear cookies on Firefox. I also know how to clear cookies automatically while putting the few sites I like as an acception. Ponyville.us and Ponychan for example are on that exception list and should keep my username, theme and prefered settings.

But it don't.

Whenever I close down the browser and open Ponychan and Ponyville in new Firefox window it resets and forgets on me. While I usually keep these windows open in the background I still have to switch off my computer, so logging in and finding these sites have forgotten me is a hassle as I have to set by theme and put in my username every time I want to comment.

Anyway fix for this?

I was wondering if there was any conversation about "rebranding" this website. Other pony imageboards are in the process of rebranding, and getting away from the pony references, for several reasons.

Would this board ever consider them?

>I also thought Moony had a very good compromising suggestion, though how hard that would be to implement-and if it would be worth it, is another question I don't know the answers to.

Ponychan did it first, so we'd kind of be ripping off that idea.

But honestly, Moony gets to make the calls as it's on his paycheck, I think. Which is a pretty huge deal that I shouldn't take for granted.

I'd still be saddened to see the pony branding go, even if it wouldn't be relevant anymore. For sentimental reasons.

I was just looking at this and realized that we have a few posters here who live in other countries besides the USA.

Would it be beneficial to the site to link to a general page, such as this wikipedia article:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines

That has a long list of phone numbers by country, instead of just the US phone line?

Eh, I think that's too harsh.  I have some quibbles about some things that the site staff do (including this recent episode on /townhall/), but overall I think they do a great job.  The site staff here are much better than the Reddit admins and a lot of subreddit mods.  On some subreddits, the mods ban people simply for disagreeing with them.

Some people really like to RP that they are being oppressed by the sanctimonious, power tripping mods instead of accepting that sometimes they are just biased heavily towards themselves and only have a fraction of the total picture. The fact you are allowed to freely spit in the face of a mod and have no action taken against you would tell a wise person where the bulk of the power actually lies here.

Considering "disputed" is an element of "politics" i would like to know if the fact of the next President is still "politics" here or if i am allowed to discuss reality here with my friends yet.

Its a serious question.  Dont go projecting nonexistent imaginary hostility onto a fair and crucial question.

If the answer is "still no" then please just say so and please spare me any drama lectures.  If i need to go find friends in a First Amendment environment i will do so without complaint i promise.  I am not looking for an argument.  Just Yes or No.

So please lets keep the answer direct, nonaccusatory and under 100 words please.  Thank you.

Such a question makes my brain explode.  Its its i just dont have words.  Anyone?

edit.  a lost pony will make only 1 attempt to explain as follows.  i have zero interest in discussing politics.  i just want to seek validation and share support with my friends about things that matter without fear of being lightning bolted if my life is out of control amidst current events that actually exist like whether i will have my DentiCal cut off by a supreme court decision or something.  I cannot be validated by nameless posts.  I need friendship.  

I know.  That fantasy imagines anyone here is my friend.  Sadly, not among the deciders.  Whatever.

Followup:  for example this happened today and i would discuss it with friends it directly impacts but cannot be posted on /pony. https://youtu.be/7h9zKFIhkS0

>>7223
I can understand the desire for validation and support from friends, but you realize the nature of politics is that it cuts both ways, right?
It's not all black and white.
There's things that you might cheer for that might give me that "fear of being lightning bolted if my life is out of control amidst current events that actually exist", as you put it. Likewise, I'm sure there are things I might cheer for, that will equally give you the same feeling.
Validation and support are something everyone wants, but I hope you understand, politics does not only give you validation and support. Sometimes it gives rejection, and the feeling of being alone in the world.
People very often ascribe morality of people based on presumptions of their political stances. Getting labeled "evil" by your friends certainly doesn't feel very good. Especially when talking about politics rarely results in empathetic understanding between parties, or for that matter even understanding of the actual positions. More likely to get hidden, but that just makes it worse really, because then the thinking is just what they'd think of the "real" you.

I'm not really against names per say, but personally I think it does more harm than good. I am definitely alright with politics being segregated if not outright forbidden, though, as I don't think I've seen it ever benefit any community to have it be a regular occurrence.

Can we just get rid of /townhall/ and have a sweeping ban on politics in general already?

In fact can we just get mods who have a spine to recognize that other users threats to be uncivil if politics are brought up at all and shifting blame for their shitty behavior is a form of abusive manipulation?

...My dear little ponies. It has been a long time since we last discussed, in earnest, the topic of politics on /pony/, and on Ponyville as a whole.

Last time we talked, the mandate of the users was that we were too lenient with politics as it created conflict which broke rules on the site.

This caused our enforcement policy to learn towards moving all politics to townhall, and being quite strict about politics on /pony/.

It seems though that many users are feeling unhappy with this policy.

As the times change, so too do opinions, and we should not hold today's policy if it's based on yesterday's opinions.

So, i think, let us discuss, and ultimately let us vote, on what direction we think the site should go in, with regards to how politics are handled.

Open discussion/total free speech? Even stricter? Censorship?

It should be, ultimately, your decision, as a community.

Such a well thought out, well organized,  post, Thorax.

Much of this initiative in so far as it comes to adjusting internal policy for moderation here comes directly from Thorax's mind, and we all have him to thank for it.

We shall still be holding a referendum, with which to provide information and context to help inform us as staff of your expectations as users.

That said, i think putting everyone on the same page, and making it clear that we are going to be exercising necessary authority to enforce our policies in the future will help a great deal

in so doing, maybe by reining in some of the more anarchic tendencies of the site, everyone will feel more comfortable and happy

Yes Max is the best of us.

Imo Moony there will always be a squeaky wheel whinging away somewhere until this site actually enforces whatever policy it states both fairly and in spirit of its clearly-stated intent.
