Friendship is important, but I think many ponies are confused about how to make friends safely. I know I am. But that can all change with a protocol. In this thread you can make friends using a protocol.
Below the three dashes (---) are the things you are suppose to say. I don’t want anypony to have to worry about being a bad pony, so you should just copy these (each line represents a separate post. I could detail how the exchange ought work, but I think most can follow. If not, it is no large issue. I think it would still be safe out of order.). I’m pretty sure these things are safe. If they are not, let me know in another thread so I can fix them. Replace <poster> with the full name of the pony you’re talking to. I’ll leave it up to you whether you include the tripcode. They can be hard to copy on a mobile device, I know.
You have to be friends with everypony in the thread. I can’t think of any reason to not be inclusive that wouldn’t maybe make you a bad pony. And no one wants to be a bad pony. You need not talk to everypony as that would scale post count gammaponentially with population, but you will all be friends. I’ll try to remember all of you so maybe we can do more safe friendly things later if this goes well.
How are you, <poster>?
I am well. Thank you for asking.
