Hey, ponies, I come from 4chan, /mlp/ and /vp/, if you want to know, and I was wondering if Colgate has been translated into Yotsuba?

If so, can someone post it?

Thank you so much for posting the code; unfortunately it's not working with the modernized 4chan but that'll do it too, since it's easy to rewrite-- I will definitely do so later.

I was asking if there is a Colgate CSS for 4chan. (´・ω・`)

Sometimes if the message is too small, the window doesn't recognize it as a new message. Generally if it has an image or a second line of text it's A-OKAY, but otherwise you might get hornswaggled.

Yes, I assume that ever since /gala/ was made we've been close to storage capacity, or at least that's the only big increase for a while that I can imagine - we are definitely using more than we did in our peak days at any rate because of it. In fact, I seem to remember all boards used to have up to 18 pages, I assume that's why the standard has been chopped down to 12.

I doubt webms alone will put us at 100% capacity, else a fuckload extra measures would have been taken. assuming we aren't using dedicated servers we can likely go over that for a short while before getting warnings. But webms will increase the usage by tens of megabytes (my bet, off-season 50~ MB a month, on-season 90-150 MB), which might not seem a lot to you, but if say, we only have three or four hundred megabytes left, that's a lot, since the server always needs extra space for certain operations that may need to cache data.

A bit late, but the reason you need to embed it instead of uploading is because our servers already use a lot of disk space and bandwidth

Can we get the episode initials feature updated for season 4? I'm not asking for them to be added week by week,'s been months since the season ended and none of them are added.

And while I'm here...I had an idea for the episode initials which aren't tagged because they're also commonly used to mean other things (like PC, SaYS, MD). Maybe there could be way to "force" them to tag as episode titles, like by putting a * in front of it or something. But really, just adding season 4 for now will be fine.

Sure. Some of those puns, I swear…

I changed the common abbreviations I noticed to only tag if they're capitalized the right way – says, SaYS, SAYS. Should be good enough for now.

Let's play "spot the malformed HTML"!

Hint: You should perform truncation BEFORE sanitization, not after.

The most obvious one was the "<span"
>> No. 162172 ID: 3867aa
Actually, the OP's pic has it wrapping because of the white-space, so that "<span" is actually complete. But if I were to go off of that in the image, than we are missing the last bit of that sentence. The '&' should actually be &quot; I believe.

So he's talking about the fact that the board.php script (or one of the many other referenced php scripts within that script), performs sanitation before truncation, therefore, a " mark will become &quot;, but the character count was too high because of that, therefore &quot; got cut to just &.

Hi mods! i have just a little request, concerning /chat/. Now, i've petitioned to have the board renamed a few times, and it has been changed a few times, but somehow, it keeps on sneaking back to "obligatory off-topic board."

It's currently Chattanooga, but again, the "obligatory off-topic board" has reappeared. If it is okay, i would like to formally petition for the board names to remain consistent; lots of things are okay to have fun with, but let us not joke about with our infrastructure.

i would like to request the name be changed to "Conversation lounge" or something of that sort. If that's not feasible, that's okay too. i know /chat/ doesn't get many posts, but i still feel like at least it should be given a fair shake.

It was a lead up to /oat/stanbul, which also doesn't make any sense. Discovering this half way through, I decided to not change /oat/.

Also interesting to note that Fen changed /oat/'s subtitle at the same time he changed /chat/'s, and not a single person has commented on it.

Janitors usually cant ban for longer than 15 minutes, but i cant actually check that because the actual janitor position is broken at the moment, inkwell probably canabalised it for his !!owner / !!dev tag bollocks.

Alright, this idea started as a joke, but now I'm really curious as to what would happen.

How about we collapse all of the boards into a SINGLE BOARD? Not permanently, mind you. Just for a day or two.

On the surface, this seems like the most idiotic idea possible. In fact, that is exactly what it may be. But doing it temporarily could encourage users of the different subcommunities to mingle and see what other subcommunities may actually be of interest to them.

When the experiment is done, we can snap everything back to normal and regroup on /meta/ to discuss how it went. If all goes well, we bring the chan closer and increase site usage. If all goes poorly, we can roast marshmallows over the flamewars and laugh at the dramafest. It's a win/win!

Yang is an admin.

To be honest, I played a bt with you too.

just because some random person on ponychan tells you you can be a mod, doesn't mean you are or will be a mod.

If that time comes, yang or Fenolio will contact you with the question "How would you feel if you get to be a mod?" or something. On their own.

Mods are kinda chosen based on the need to have one and the staff proposing candidates and picking them based on how they see them posting and feel about the person overall.

Sorry to say, but I don't see them choosing you for the position, tbh. then again, I can imagine lots of people who won't make modship ever.

Looking at the pX settings, I think that it might be able to fix it, but it's not a setting so much as a complete overwrite of post styles. So I'm not really sure what I'm doing with it. I bet that's the fix people came up with, though.
