Just a quick mention - #ponychan, i.e. the /irc/ chat channel now lists new threads as they get posted. So, if you want to keep up with new threads, or even get notified when a thread in a certain board or by a certain poster crops up, you can do it there.

The IRC isn't down, it's just never really used because no one likes IRC compared to Skype.

A bit odd, I think, but can't argue with facts.

No, but all its users prefer to use Skype. I mean, in a way there's a whole ton of Ponychan Skype groups, that's just where people go to communicate.

Threads about sex are not allowed but threads about drug use are. Even thought 1) sex is legal and drugs are not. 2) All the mods are bisexual and have twice as much sex as most people.

What the fuck is up with that? Why can we not talk about something legal when worthless stoners get to talk about smoking weed in a million threads?

Dear /Meta/

With sorrow I have to report here about increasing amounts of drugs/illegal substances discussions on our beloved board /oat/.

It makes me worry. I heard it's legal to use drugs called as weed on Washington, that's why people consider it's OKAY to talk about coke, LSD and other stuff.

Maybe I can understand why there is weed discussion about tripping , because rules said it's allowed due Washington law. But really. We have underage posters, we have people from other states/countries where weed is not allowed. It disturbing them. (Mostly me)

Can we move weed discussion to >>>/chat/ or to >>>/420blazeit/

And what should we do about LSD, acid, heroin, chem overdose and other drugs discussions? (Not weed)

Maybe to an extent emotionally, but
if someone is determined to spiral out into oblivion, there isn't a lot you or I can do to stop them. At some point, you got to let them do what they got to do.
If there's one thing you own in this life, its your own bag of meat. I can say "be careful, I care about you" if I'm assuming you haven't thought about the consequences, but the final choice is in the individual's hands.

And as easy as it sounds to say "throw my body in a ditch", but people will likely want to pay for your funeral too. And if you don't got insurance for that, crudely stated, your death will be a real financial doozy.

The entire point of it is that people can post in it if they want to continue the sex-discussion-that-totally-isnt-just-an-excuse-to-talk-lewd.
Only those threads that have the potential of being discussion worthy get sent to /dis/ to at least give them a chance.
People abused the mods lax view on things, so shit got tightened up.
An argument was made for people that wanted to seriously talk about sex as mature adults, so the option was provided instead of taking a fuck everything approach.


This solution is literally wins all around unless you want to use the excuse of "But i dont want to talk lewd, i want to seriously discuss sex as an adult." to post softcore porn / ERP with an audience at which point i stop giving a shit about your(Not you specifically, just the imaginary 'you' in this scenario) opinion.

Hey, remember when this place first begun all of the unnecessary board splittings, on top of board specific rules being heavily enforced? Why was that such a horrible idea? It’s probably because the so-called ‘communities’ didn’t define the content in their boards, the mods did.

That being said, I’m not going to bother explaining why boards like /good/ for example, should be deleted. I’m pretty sure that decision will be completely unanimous when it finally gets axed, if it already isn’t right now and we’re simply waiting for an admin to approve of its removal. Because their community does a good job at defining itself, by being entirely nonexistent.

But then I hear people saying that boards like say, /fic/ or /collab/ should be deleted, or even /pic/, under the principle that it’ll help streamline content into boards that can perhaps serve its purpose better. Then the argument I often hear against it is that the board’s remaining dedicated users won’t refuge at a different board, but instead will just leave altogether. The credibility of those points doesn’t really concern me so much. In fact, whenever this argument arises at all, the biggest concern I have is that no one really looks beyond those two options, despite how endless the possibilities really are.

Who is to say that creating and deleting boards are our only methods to keep traffic healthy on an imageboard at all? As a site runner for any imageboard, for that matter, are you really trying to give these communities a sense of unique purpose by opening up a new blank board that will be generated from the same template that has the same functionality and appearance as the rest of the site? This is why I always found it facepalm-worthy back on 4chan when people would practically shit themselves when moot would open a new board, as if it were some divine, holier-than-thou site ritual. First you have the community trying to find a purpose, then you have mods providing support by enforcing rules without being too intrusive (hopefully), then you have, well, a board template that’s both visually and functionally identical as the rest of the site. Personally I’d go as far as to say that this is an

Huh. Maybe they saved >>159696 or >>159701 on an iPhone, and not the original gyropedia file. The point of those images were that if anyone saved the gyropedia version on a phone, then the resulting image would be banned.

Testing to see if saving the iOS version ON iOS causes a double negative or whatever.
