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?

It sets a bad example. Mods don't give a shit about the theme or rules. Why should I? I can do what I want, mods won't do anything, they're never here.

That's what people will think when they hear half the modstaff doesn't care.

Perfect example is Dragonpuncher there. Orange doesn't give a shit so he's back annoying people.

If Orange was replaced with someone competent, this thread wouldn't even have happened.

Yes.. I was agreeing with you that some of that is fine.. and just going on with my line of reasoning.

Apologies Shuckle.

>What if I got a general consensus that sex threads should be allowed?
We'd say no because the privilege was abused.

The provider bans sexual material from being posted on this site.

If i purposely posted an explicit clop fic on here and the webhost got wind of it, they would send me / the admins an angry email and possibly have grounds to take down the site if i was kept on staff afterwards.

Have you even read this part of the rules i linked earlier?
It's literally an FAQ about the ban on sexual threads.

>So then why must i get consensus to do the reverse?
Because that's exactly what other people did to get the sexual threads rule to be a thing.

They considered something a problem.
They told mods about the problem.
Mods and they discussed solutions to the problem.
Problem was theoretically solved and now only relies on mods doing their job.

Hence why i still advocate that making /oat/ every-topic was one of the stupidest things this site has ever accomplished.

Cant exactly re-ban Manley even if orange was replaced right this second.
Doesnt sit right with my morals and i think the other mods agree.
>> No. 160434 ID: 487cca

Re-ban him? Well no.. my point was if Orange was replaced when he should have been. Manley wouldn't have been unbanned in the first place. If Fen had been kept in charge, this wouldn't be a problem. But nope, the rot had to return at the top and well, pretty much all hope.. and much post count, was lost.

One stupid thing among many. First being a creation of a board for every topic under the sun.

You did hear that Orange isn't admin anymore, right?

He owns the site, does he not? He unbanned Manley, did he not?

All I'm asking is that we try and regulate the amount of drug threads. Completely getting rid of them is impossible, but regulating them is not.

Orange was definitely replaced last summer. Whether or not he was replaced with someone competent is a different discussion.

He doesn't own the site and hasn't for almost a year. He was only removed as admin earlier this week.

That's true. But that only happened very recently, and not only wasn't all that bad a decision (Manley's a fairly popular guy, really, and usually doesn't cause problems), but it was practically his only decision in the past year.

Not totally pointless. Inkwell is really rich so he can pay for the site.

>But why would he pay for a site he seems to have no interest in?

I have no idea, and I've tried to ask him. He's got a reason, I can tell. He won't tell anyone I know, though, which worries me. He wasn't here before becoming a mod, suddenly became a mod for a friend who he later unceremoniously removed from the staff with his own absence, then decided that spending a whole load of money on the place is a good idea, and then left again.

>Is anyone actually in charge of this place?

No, that's why everyone's always complaining. There's another thread on /meta/ right now where Inkwell came out to apologize for no one being in charge of the place. He promised changes to that soon.

Also, we're really derailed, as per usual, but I think Manley was gonna start up a more /meta/-esque thread rather than "The mods are all faggots." So I might encourage he do that.

To Orange, maybe, but pretty much everyone save for the clueless have been sick of his shit for quite a long time. I don't see why people can't understand that this guy is never going to change or improve, or find any sort of way to not be an insufferable whiny asshole. It's just his constant state of being.

Obviously you've ignored like the entire time he's been back, where he's generally shown improvement. If he does anything ban worthy, he'd be banned. I mean, just look at his most recent posts in the thread. Nothing about that is insufferable or whiny. They were well thought out, easy to understand, and informative posts. Why pop up just to complain about him being unbanned in the first place?

It was funny, because Manley was being pretty thoughtful and constructive, and then people came in just to complain about Manely being here and derailed the thread, which was then blamed on Manley. The guy can't win even when's he's not doing anything wrong.

Oh, it's Mondo. My computer stores cookies weird, so my name falls off sometimes. One time my whole tripcode fell off and I had to dig it up again, which was rather a pain.

As for being level headed, it probably depends on who you ask.

Hardly, he's been the exact same ever since he came back. The only excuse I can think of for the lack of response this time is simple crippling apathy in both the userbase and in the staff.

He wasn't at first, he was actually doing pretty well and didn't say anything stupid, then the pokefuckers thing happened and yeah I don't know what's up with that. But to say he hasn't improved would be just not paying attention.

Right, he's far from perfect, and I can totally see why some people might consider him a less than ideal poster, but he has improved from where he was, even if he's a broken record when it comes to his jokes.

Admittedly, he's not being nearly as rampantly homophobic as he used to be, but I think he's right about made up for that with endless thread after thread about pokefucking. If you're going to make threads like that, at least think of an interesting question, like musing how ghost pokemon can breed when they pass through each other. That would be a REAL mystery.

...sorry, I'm going on a bit of a tangent. I should probably go to bed.

Nobody is forcing you to look at the thread, there is a hide button for a reason. If you really are annoyed that much by threads that aren't amusing enough for you, then just filter them. Or better yet, just filter Manley and all your problems will be solved.

I do. I still watch the show, dig up art, and I probably participate in the more pony oriented parts of the board more than I ever have. I've never been one for enthusiasm, but at the very least, my feelings for the show haven't really wavered any in the past few years. Looking forward to season 5, and even the new EqG movie.

I have finished the show and watched all of season 4, looking forward to the new EQG movie, and I'm really into fan fiction and before the military worked with a lot of writers to help improve their works.

Since apparently that was a question at some point in this mess.

Frankly, I'm not for threatening people with bans.

But this thread...

I personally could deal with his jokes on gay people or women or pokemon or whatever. My mod sie, however has always been annoyed with his fighting against mod decisions, about the whole thing where his obvious lewd threads get removed and everything. Reading threads like this makes me remember that it was an unthankful and maybe poor decision to undo the ban.

I read the premise of this thread and thought about it. I might out myself as a big perv, but why is drugs on ponychan less of an issue as sex?
Sex makes people horny, drugs generally doesn't really drag people into drugs themselves.
If you talk about sex, you listen to sex and you're just encouraged to get lewder on lewder, cause that's the vortex your mind sets in on.
And that is something that I notice bout sexual threads. People get in, start to share experiences and in the end, they're talking about what odd places they shot their load in.
It's that mindset that makes the whole sex thing on a place that tries to be more or less family friendly and doesn't allow porn, a very unwelcome thing.
As such, I think comparing drugs and sex is a fair comparison.

Frankly, you're gonna have to deal with this as it is, until you can get a massive enough support and someone to listen to you on /meta/.

That's fair, yeah. There are things he wants that aren't really allowed by the rules, and when he doesn't get them or finds a "loophole" of sorts, he likes to press it to make an issue of it. I can't blame you for getting a bit annoyed with that.
