TLDR: This website is potentially changing, and you should read the entire post before commenting on this proposal.

First off, don't panic and kill us.

The Ponychan and MLPchan staffs are proposing a merger between the two sites. MLPchan was created in response to Ponychan policies of the time. We believe that since then, our differences have decreased, and those that remain are worth setting aside to unify the community.

The following is a proposal written up by the staff members of both Ponychan and MLPchan, everyone had equal say and ample opportunity to discuss or suggest the things that went into this proposal.
Everything in this proposal is subject to change based on discussion, but the degree of possible changes varies.
For example, the website being called "Ponychan" and having a /pony/ board is not likely to change unless somebody brings up an extremely good reason for it.
On the other hand, the splitting of /rp/ into /rp/ and /ooc/ is something very easily done.

Please remember to keep things in this thread civil and thought provoking, a "happening" thread may be created on /oat/ if you wish to post such apocolyptic tomfoolery.

The details of the proposal as written by the staffs:

Site structure
"" would still be the name of the site.
The site's current servers and webhost will be retired, and MLPchan's current set up would become ours.
Kusaba will be slain, and MLPchan's Tinyboard setup will be implemented, with all of Ponychan's current themes and functionality added.
Both Ponychan and MLPchan archives saved and merged.
Site funding by Anonthony, has no official status, position or authority within the staff beyond that of a regular user who decides to donate their life savings to a horse website.
A fresh slate will be given for current bans for all but the most serious cases.

Position Name Tag
Community Admin Fenolio !!Shining Armor
Systems Admin Macil !!Luna
Moderator Admiral Yang !!Tag
Moderator Astra Bolt !!Twilight Sparkle
Moderator Crimson Risk !!Rarity
Moderator Ghosties !!Gilda
Moderator Mellowbloom !!Tag
Moderator Nimble !!Pinkie Pie
Moderator Rainbro !!Rainbow Dash
Moderator TPWPF !!Fluttershy
Moderator Soarin/HB !!Soarin
Developer Zeke !!Sweetie Bot

An administration of Macil and Fenolio, both highly respected and extremely capable, would wield full authority, with no ownership issues above them, would be well positioned to caretake for the community and lead it into the future.
The moderation team, comprised of a mix of both sites’ current moderators, is experienced and even-keeled.
While you may notice several existing staff from both sites are not listed, it was to maintain an appropriate mod-team size, have timezone coverage, and be comprised of the more active and experienced individuals.
Inkwell has chosen to step down for reasons unrelated to this merger, although his departure has highlighted the need for a changeup in the how the site is run.

Board layout
Board Type Name Description
Infrastructure /site/ site issues and questions
Infrastructure /arch/ chan archive (both sites merged)
Infrastructure /all/ combination of all boards on a single page
Discussion /pony/ mlp related discussion
Discussion /oat/ any topic
Discussion /anon/ any topic, anonymous-based - mature-content tagged, hidden by default threads allowed
Discussion /chat/ off-topic sfw serial threads
Creative /rp/ roleplay
Creative /pic/ pic galleries, dumps and so on
Creative /fan/ 'fanwork' board; writing, collaboration, art, etc
Hidden /moon/ Ban-ishment board (linked in banpage and rules page)
Hidden /test/ for testan

Completely clean slate, added as demand warrants and the number kept to a strict minimum that is yet to be determined.

Global rules (violation will result in a site-wide ban)
Disruptive behaviors that prevent others from engaging in a thread are prohibited.
Stalking, harassment, or posting of others' personal information are prohibited.
Do not post anything illegal under U.S. or U.K. law
No pornography or overtly sexual images outside of /anon/
Pornography and overtly sexual images depicting minors (including drawings) are not allowed anywhere on the site.
No gore or images of extreme violence outside of /anon/
No spamming of this site or any other
No malicious impersonation of other users
The moderation staff reserves the right to enforce both the letter and
the spirit of these rules.

Board rules (violation may result in a ban from the corresponding board)
On-topic board about the site itself.

All threads on this board are to be related to ponies, the show, the films, comics and so on in some way.
Do not derail threads tagged as "Serious" or "Show Discussion".

Do not derail threads tagged as "Serious".

This is MLPchan’s anonymous culture board. Names are generally discouraged.
NSFW threads and images must be posted under a “Mature” tag, a feature unique to this board.
Underage NSFW content (including loli and foalcon) is not allowed even under a mature tag

This is a board for serial threads (threads with more-or-less static groups of posters that are frequently remade). Non-serial threads should be posted on /oat/, /anon/, or /pony/ as appropriate. Use of the [#cyclic] tag in the OP will enable your thread to delete old posts when it goes over 500 and last indefinitely without hitting a limit.
Keep the drama to a minimum.

No ERP/cybering.
Do not post in RP threads that you are not a part of without the permission of the OP, unless they are tagged as "Open".
If a thread is marked "Closed", do not post in it for any reason unless you are a part of that RP
Please adhere to the rules of the particular RP that you are in.
Roleplay canons are allowed to create their own rules and police members as long as they follow the site rules.

All image dumps should be MLP-related.
NSFW images are not allowed on this board. All NSFW content should be posted in /anon/ with the “Mature” tag. (Or do people want #mature tags on /pic/?)
Before posting new threads, please make sure there is not already an existing thread on the same topic. Duplicate threads make the board disorganized and redundant.

Please post only fan-created works on this board. Official show content (videos, writing, etc...) should be posted on /pony/. Official show merchandise may be posted/discussed here.

/vinyl/, /g/
Should they exist, or just be subsumed into /oat/? We feel the above structure would be best for the community, but we are looking for the community’s input.

Yeah no. We need to either get rid of serial threads or put them on the same board as /oat/ so that they get new traffic. Otherwise it's going to be the same shit.

Other than that, I'm down for this.
>> No. 163949 ID: a098c9
I feel like with the combined /oat/s, and the smaller boards being merged into it, that /oat/ will be fast on it's own accord and having serials in there plus that would just make it confusing for everyone.. Or at least, that would be my concern with having literally everything + serials in one board. I'm actually intrigued that there's someone who wants them reintegrated into everything else, I didn't expect that.
>> No. 163950 ID: fc79f3

posting this on mlpchan
>> No. 163951 ID: d27c62
I'm for that because that's how it used to be, and it worked. Serials had a changing community and it's members posted on the rest of the site. If you isolate them they're going to just stay there and contribute nothing.

>> No. 163953 ID: a098c9
I can't disagree with that necessarily, as I was a staunch opponent of a serial board back in the day. I'd just hate to have it come back full circle to people constantly complaining about serials-in-muh-board again. But again I can't argue with you about it, especially considering how MLPchan handles serial threads with it's serial-tag.
It would be /chat/ (basically just /gala/ renamed to /chat/.)
>> No. 163954 ID: d27c62
I mean you could also get rid of them. But then you run the risk of possibly deleting a large section of the site. Then again, they don't really post anywhere else anyway, so is it really a loss?
>> No. 163955 ID: a098c9
Well, some of them do - and they might feel less reason to come around often if their usual hangout is gone. Either way, it's an alienation risk somewhat.

I would only mind if we lost Gaston and Expression Viewer. The other wordfilters aren't that important imo.

Specific ones people like, I'm sure, can be discussed again. I'd presume that all the serious boards - /site/, /pony/, /anon/, /rp/, would be free of them, but for the general discussion board of /oat/ I'm for having a few.

Hm...about /pony/, I do like its current state, in that it's only for discussion of the show and its canon, not just threads about "rainbow dash is next to you, wat do?" and such. Is it going to remain that way?

If not, more hidden threads for me.

The wordfilters, like most other jokes, were cute and silly at first, but now they're just stale and annoying.

For the most part, only things like "fag" and other common internet insults should remain wordfiltered.

I would prefer /pony/ stay in its state, yes. I think that's the plan. For that matter, it makes sense, since it gives more content for /oat/. /oat/ should be the broad, faster paced, lots of stuff to talk about and do board, and /pony/ for the show, canon, writers, stories, movies, comics, theories, characters, VAs, show songs, etc.

On MLPchan, I was a huge fan of the "no serial board; let them be in /oat/" idea for the reasons you mentioned. I made it so threads with over 200 posts could only be bumped once every 6-12 hours so that the serials wouldn't hog the top of the board, and it's worked out well for us. Though we only have a couple active serial threads. I'm not too sure how much our solution would scale to many more serials, or how much Ponychan users like having a separate serial board. I'm interested in hearing how much people like or dislike the idea of a separate serials board.

Can this "tinyboard" thing can do all the same things pX does? I suppose filtering is really the only major thing from pX that I care about.

>> No. 163978 ID: ef443b
So how are we going to handle the tougher issues relating to how it is run?

For example, MLPchan didn't want to implement a filter and turned a blind eye to foalcon and has some porn allowed in some serials.

How are we going to handle those types of things? I don't use MLPchan much anymore so if changes to those things happened I probably wouldn't know.

if you check a thread there, this one for instance, and click settings, you will see what is currently enabled by default.

yes to a filter I would imagine; mlpchan has one as a userscript, just not in-site. anything underage is a no go, same with in serials. its the same as it is here in some serials, people post it deep in serials and it kinda gets under the radar. *shrug.*
>> No. 163982 ID: ef443b
well yeah, that's how its "implemented" on MLPchan too

Quotes for the site's actual policy being different than what is said to make people happy. Since we have a lot of moderators from there coming I was wondering if their style would assimilate or meet in the middle or stay their own.
>> No. 163983 ID: a098c9
I wouldn't even say it's a "lot" of mods from there. 3, actually, and the Sysadmin. Those three mods include Mellowbloom, who is probably about as "Ponychan" as they come (and is basically the "heavy" of the mlpchan mods.)

Filtering in pX is not about mature content, it's basically a user blocklist. You put a name on the list, and any post with that name is automatically hidden. (it can also filter by tripcode, email address, subject, and filename)

Despite the number of people I have filtered being countable on just my fingers, it's still a nice feature to have.

I'd personally like to see them stay split so that way it's easier for roleplayers to skim through sign up threads and other forms of OOC threads. Keeps it a bit more organized.

ponychans serials system needs an overhaul. /gala/ is the board that is suffering. by putting it out of its misery and renaming it (i dont see why the name would impact much) and opening to serial /chat/ to regular posts as well we might get something good. i think we will keep mlpchans tags as well which cause serials to be bumped if they get too far behind page 1. i am in favor.

/chat/ will rize again.

About damn time guys.

I'm not sure how I feel about having /chat/ being serials. You'll have people from this /chat/ wanting to go there and be /chat/. Also the problem with the separate serial board. It would be a lot of serials to be on /oat/ though.

Is there some way to just make the serials sit on the last page? It wouldn't get bumped and people could find their thread if they wanted.

Also can we keep /meta/? I like that name more. /site/ is boring.

Question, what happened to potentially putting serials back with the general discussions? I really don't believe keeping them in a quarantine zone is the best option, especially for those of us in them. Unless you you keep this less of a quarantine zone, and more of a "If you want to be segregated you can choose to be, otherwise post your serial in your area of choice". Some serials work better when they're out amongst everything else, while others may work better being in their own area.

OR, implement a tag system, so that those who don't want to see serials don't see them, along with a specific amount of time they can stay on the front page. Some of them may need to be on the front page for a little while, so that intermingling happens. This also would help threads like that "Wastelands" serial that just went to /gala/ to die.
Otherwise you force them all to circle jerk or die out, even those that don't want to be that way.

Other than that... I like, I think at least.

I think /gala/ /newchat/ is still pretty nice for the slower serials that would get instaburied on a board like /oat/. It's like, we separate boards for the reason of there being too much traffic, and that's pretty much the definition.

That said, I wouldn't actually be too opposed, I'd see how it went.

There were like, 5 people that were upset when it got killed. I could see them wanting to use it again just because it has the name.
I don't think serials should be on a separate board, you can't have it clogging up /oat/ either though.
I think we should try what MLPchan does and then if that doesn't work then talk about pushing them off to another board.

You can quote rules all you want but it doesn't change the fact that they were frequently going unenforced over on MLPchan in their serials.

Everything sounds fantastic

But I don't agree with where the serials will end up either.

I, myself, mostly keep to a serial thread and I know it would be irritating for them to be in the same place as /chat/ or /oat/ or whatever

/chat/ should be left to chat in and serials should be left to /gala/ or what have you

this is what started the drama in the first place for /gala/ to be created anyways

- The new staff list does not include lemming.

- Removal of wordfilters.
- Bigger community, whole is larger than the sum of its parts.
- I can think of at least one person for whom this free ban forgiveness would be greatly appreciated, and whom I'd like to see posting again.
- Getting rid of the name /meta/. The name has a horrible taste associated with it.

>We believe that since then, our differences have decreased, and those that remain are worth setting aside to unify the community.
No they fuckin' haven't. /meta/ is still filled with threads about how ___ shouldn't have been banned and "I object to how this ban/warning was handled". /site/ has none of this. Clearly there's a major difference in how things are run around each site. And since there will still be a Fen and a Yang in this new site, the two of them are just going to have more people to ban, and more people to complain about it.

Ponychan hasn't changed. I haven't lurked MLPchan thoroughly enough to tell if it has changed or not, but if it did I highly doubt it would become more like Ponychan.

This really just amounts to shuffling people around when they could just go to whichever site if they really wanted to.

I've been thinking this over and I don't think that'd be too bad to have on here (maybe some tweaking with the times if it gets too much). If too many serials is a problem, why not allow board specific serials back to their specific boards with the same coding as the /oat/ serials?

I don't just approve of the merge, I've anticipated it.

For those that were concerned about serials choking out traffic, I feel that it should be clarified that MLPchan's /oat/ board has no bump limit. After a certain number of posts, a thread can get bumped if there was at some point a timespan between 7-13 hours between posts. This lets serials fall down to the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th page without choking out the first page, yet without 404ing out of hitting an arbitrary bump ceiling.

And that reminds me. Please please please open source the merged site. The sheer existence of this site despite all the shit we've gone through without admin involvement alone is enough proof to say that the community is to be trusted with the site's own source code.

In reality, lemming hasn't been actually modding this site in almost two years. The reasons as for why he is officially still on the contacts list as opposed to Flutterguy's removal within three months is well beyond me.

I think, from our side at least, it's a step forward in a lot of ways. One that's possibly necessary, even.

Interesting, looks alright to me. Questions and remarks as following.

Any crazy additional UK laws? Can we not insult the Queen or something? (>Implying I know the US and local laws I been posting under).
I'm not sure about having a serial board right away. The stuff I read about serial/cyclic tags sounds pretty sweet actually. /chat/ doesn't fit as a name I think.
"Encouraged anon board" reads really odd. I'd probably either make it forced anon or rename it (creatively, like we did once with /ef/)
The banners on mlpchan are fun. If we do merge, we should make some banners after everything has stabilized.
I like the name /meta/, but /site/ is cool too

I believe the reason it wouldn't be forced anon is so content creators that actually need to use a trip could do so.

That's what I figured. Really depends how it plays out and if people would adhere to the anon encouragement I guess. The /anon/ name without it being technically anon is just misleading.

I mentioned this in the MLPchan thread, but figured it should be repeated here.
>>so when exactly is this going to happen?
>Oh, a timeline was never mentioned. Nothing is possibly happening in under a few weeks.

/anon/'s name is a historical thing we've stuck with. It used to be forced anon, until /mlp/ had an exodus into it and decided they did actually want names and tripcodes every once in a while. The board's name is unique and part of its identity now, and I think it's very important some part of MLPchan retains its unique identity like that.

>and on mlpchan there's nothing but trolling.
The MLPchan thread has many people concerned about changes to MLPchan, but I believe our plan already addresses their concerns and it will take some time for people to get used to it. I've not yet seen any substantial issues that we weren't expecting to address. We'll continue to follow and respond to the thread before coming to any conclusions of course.

The MLPchan does have a few people trying to misrepresent the consensus by posting conflicting things anonymously.

No. No. This shit doesn't go together. These userbases don't go together. They'll start clashing with each other and you know it. These rules and mods don't go together.

Computer Misuse Act, possibly. In regards to this site, people would be prohibited from
1. Accessing confidential information without permission (i.e. IP addresses and private mod sections)
2. Using the site to commit a crime (i.e. hacking into the site even if you fail to do so, supplying drugs, murder and stuff like that. I also heard it was an offence to post harrassive messages and comments, although the law itself isn't worded well enough.)

This was supposed to be in the OP, editing it in now because yang posted a slightly older version from god knows where.
An administration of Macil and Fenolio, both highly respected and extremely capable, would wield full authority, with no ownership issues above them, would be well positioned to caretake for the community and lead it into the future. The moderation team, comprised of a mix of both sites’ current moderators, is experienced and even-keeled. While you may notice several existing staff from both sites are not listed, it was to maintain an appropriate mod-team size, have timezone coverage, and be comprised of the more active and experienced individuals.

Inkwell has chosen to step down for reasons unrelated to this merger, although his departure has highlighted the need for a changeup in the how the site is run.

No other changes to it beyond adding this.

Sounds like a pretty solid plan to be honest, i'd advise to keep /g/ and /vinyl/ in the /oat/ board, perhaps introduce a filtering option that shows threads particularly marked as such for those solely interested in those, but keeping them in /oat/ will keep them alive and relevant at least.

The change to the way serials are handled sounds good too, in line with my own wishes and suggestions so i'd definitely be happy with that.

And creating an /anon/ board to limit such stuff to a single board sounds like a pretty acceptable solution too.

>> No. 164248 ID: d6fe50
I have to admit, I'm pretty surprised at the positive response this is getting here. This could have happened well over a year ago, but certain parties wouldn't even countenance talks then, and the owner was absent. I'm glad that this could now be discussed more coolly and authoritatively, as much as it would have been nice to have sorted this all out long ago.

I can certainly imagine friction around /anon/, but things seem to have settled in at MLPchan, so I suppose there's no reason that that shouldn't be the case in the case of a merged site. (I suppose I look askance at people expecting moderation action against people using names if it's not actually clear in the rules when that is and is not allowed, but that culture isn't really my gig anyway, even if I do post anon these days.)

We're going to have to work out what is and isnt appropriate ourselves, so there is likely to be some intial "what do" moments, not denying that.

I'm assuming that everymod will be talking with each other to determine the best way to handle things. (and if i'm wrong in assuming this then i'll use the position of admin to tell them to do it instead, huzzah for perks of admin)

This can lead to quite a bit of tension, confusion and disapproval if not done clearly and right after all, possibly killing both sites in the process if done terribly wrong.

And no worries, not doubting that that what's written doesn't have full support.

i'm fine with everything except nsfw content. nsfw content draws a lot of undesirable types of people with it, and even when it's centralized to one board they spread themselves out most everywhere as you can see on mlpchan itself. i consider that to be what basically turned the board in to /mlp/-lite and i am not really sure i want to see that haphazardly jammed into this website as well

>last time you were there

i dont post on mlpchan because i dont really care for much of the people there anymore, but i do go over there to browse and read at least one every few days when nothing's happening here or on /wooo/

once anon exploded due to /mlp/ being angry at their janitor, the shift in culture was more or less permanent. lots of /k/ type stuff, racism, pushing-the-line-with sexuality (the last of which is already here enough as it is), etc. It basically reads like a generic 4chan board, but if you go to /oat/ there are more trips than usual. admittedly a lot of these trips like toybox, desert pony and lemon loaf, are not on tihs website for a reason though so that i guess makes it not all that much different/

i dont like the baggage or attitude porn brings when it is implemented in a website because it often brings really weird and/or really awful people for whatever reason into the community. and they don't just stay where the porn is either, they start leaking everywhere and intermingling and soon we have a bunch of EOAs or lemon loafs or people unboxing their dildos everywhere. i dun want that
>> No. 164264 ID: a098c9
I can't argue with you, but that's because you're just wrong and there's no way to definitely show you that /anon/'s impact was a zero factor in any of the way the board is, whatsoever, and that the very small handful of specifically anons who do actually post outside of /anon/ are actually far superior posters to talk to than like, 99% of either ponychan or mlpchan's /oat/. So I guess we're at an impasse.

>I can't argue with you because you're wrong, but there is no way to show you you are wrong

consequently its pretty easy to see how i was right because the massive shift in board atmosphere was what made me stop posting there in the first place and not even read it for a long time because it was so depressing to see what it became. and even now that i browse it i still don't want to interact with the community really at all, because the shadows of all of that still remain. and even if a lot of those people who started trickling out of /anon/ onto /oat/ are gone, /oat/ is basically a nonentity at this point and anon is the only board on the site with a decent clip of traffic at all. i have no reason to believe that the process would not start anew, or new weirdos would be drawn to us through the tantalizing offer of now being able to look at horse cunts on ponychan

i am happy with the merger proposal otherwise. everyone proposed to be a mod in the op are good choices in my mind except maybe astra. this would also mean that the administration of the board would be a lot more proactive! but nsfw is something i cannot support. i sat and begrudged it when i was a mod on mlpchan for the promise of "revitalizing the board". but when that didnt happen and in fact made things worse in its own way, i cannot and likely will never support it being here

The merger plan itself seems well thought out, at least from the infrastructure part of it. I'm unsure if merging two communities with widly different moods and that range from being indifferent to hating each other is a good idea, though.

At least we'd be getting the better servers and board software, though I'm deathly afraid on how adding Ponychan features to MLPchan's Tinyboard could turn this into a code clusterfuck real quick.

Also, I'd need some clarification on what:

>> No. 164281 ID: a098c9
I believe that's the catchall 'don't be a dick'. Unless that's enumerated elsewhere I'm forgetting. Would also constitute stuff like derailing a thread or going full Dulset on a topic. Basically, doing things that don't necessarily break other specific rules (porn, spam, etc) but still make it hard/impossible for other people to post in/enjoy said thread or topic.

I read your original post and that's what I got from it but I think your fears are a bit silly, to be honest.

There are already way more would be lewd posters on the chan than you probably realize. They should have a space to post that kinda stuff.

Mostly I just don't see what we have to gain from this.

If mlpchan people wanted to post here, they would and no merger is required. The fact that they don't suggests they don't want to. Forcing people to do stuff they don't want to ends badly.

I think we've all had to come to terms with the fact that the split happened for a reason and the two chans have different cultures and stances on rules. The fact that everyone is so worried about the proposed new rules for the merger board and who's on the mod staff suggests we all expect this to go badly and we need to fall back on that stuff because we don't anticipate getting along.

you can when they learn to stay on the line and constantly flaunt it. when someone learns how to participate in negative behavior but never get banned for it by being careful, i would honestly say that they're probably worse than those people who just tumble in and do dumb shit and immediately get themselves banned, because those people dig in often for the long term and their presence changes the site for the worse

>I know exactly what Fen'll be able to do if people skirt around the line. Ban them.

i hope so. but as of yet i am not so sure, because as stated previously, we already have people that do this regularly. if this means tightening of moderation? then i might actually start coming around to it.

Why do it at all? Because they belong together, and the unified site stands to gain a lot more security and stability and long-term life rather than staying as separate entities.

>when they learn to stay on the line
If they're staying on the line, then the issue you seem to be having is where the line is - not that people stay on it. But most people disagree with where you'd like the line, which more strict then they are even now at Ponychan.

I think having a place to post lewds will change nothing about the chan's culture and won't have any effect on its posters aside from having a place to post that kinda stuff.

Basically I think you're worried over absolutely nothing of any real significance.

It seems to me you just don't want that board there for personal reasons.

If we're starting to presume ill will on people having doubts about the whole idea out of nowhere, then I see this ending up swimmingly.

Only real advantage I'm seeing here so far is the fact we'd get better tech infrastructure. Rest is pretty much either staying the same with chances or being worse. In my own personal opinion and experience, that is. I'm willing to give it a shot and see it explode, if only to say I lived through it.

Though a lot more would get overhauled than just tech - i.e., the server and codebase. The package deal includes an actual, dedicated syadmin (probably the best one available anywhere.)

If people post only borderline things or do it just for the 'thrill' or whatever, they'll get bitchslapped.

Constantly pushing the line puts pressure on the people in charge to remove it or tighten it as a result, and i'd rather not change things like that too often.

Theres also the fact that letting people get away with things tends to just make more problems than otherwise since muh entitlement reflex kicks in.

As was stated in the thread, Inkwell is stepping down for unrelated reasons, and that requires that the site go through some changes. As far as I know (and I'm no expert) the merger is not actually optional. It is something that will and must happen, and this post was made to inform people and try to make that as smooth as possible.

So /anon/ is not forced anon right now, but tripcodes are saved all over. I've never tripped over on MLPchan so I don't know how it works, but is there a way to voluntarily force anon on myself while I am on /anon/ without having to wipe my tripcode?

The only other option right now is for orange, me and yang to share the site but we've not really explored that beyond inkwell himself mentioning it.

And, personally, i dont have high hopes for that option so i'd much rather merge things.

Just save it somewhere?

On the matter of porn:

/ef/ recently changed this. You can make an NSFW thread and post your shit there if you're so interested in getting off.
Obviously /ef/ is a significantly smaller sample size, and is more significantly out of the way, but it hasn't changed anything other than one asshole who did something a few days ago that made me want to vomit.

But that's an option. Limit posting to certain threads that require NSFW tags/can be hidden rather than let it be posted everywhere. Some people just aren't interested in that stuff at all.

Hello there, I am an ambassador of the Filly Funtasia community. Ever since the threads on /mlp/ died, /gala/ has been the main haven for our little mini-fandom.

I've gathered that much, though I'm unsure about the earlier posts in this discussion that seemed wildly against a /gala/-style board, and how much influence those posts would have on the mod decisions.

But if it all goes well according to the original plan, do you happen to have any info on how easy it is for mods to carry existing threads over to the Tinyboard format, as I'd love to continue posting in Fillychan as it is?

>> No. 164350 ID: febf77
I am in favor of this obviously, it's a very well-considered plan that respects users of both sites. Seems like the biggest unresolved issue is whether or not serials would have their own board. I would rather have one so they have their own space that isn't encroaching on or being encroached on by regular /oat/ threads. But I don't mind a ton either way. I really don't want /chat/ to have non-serial threads though because Ponychan already tried having /oat/ and /chat/ separate but with basically the same things on both boards. It was a failure, so I'm not sure why we would go back to doing that

Also for the record, I shouldn't be listed as a mod on here because I haven't decided if I want to do it yet, should a merger occur
/anon/ doesn't want forced anon because sometimes people want to drawfag or whatever and it's useful to be able to trip if you're doing that. Plus /anon/'s culture is such that they don't want to be forced to do anything

I was told that the reason this site doesn't allow porn is because the webhost does not allow sexual content. If that was a lie, then I'm not sure I'm willing to believe porn will not just eventually be banned out-right. And setting just porn aside, what about discussion of sexual topics? Will that too be allowed on /anon/ because as it stands now, it's not allowed ANYWHERE on this site and the mods take a very prudish stance on the matter.

/anon/ won't be forced anon, tripcodes still have a function in anonymous culture and will be enabled.

I posted this in your /oat/ thread as well:

Here, read Webfaction's Acceptable Use Policy yourself if you're so suspicious.
I'll even save you the time:

Your question was pretty dumb, admittedly.

Because almost no one else wants it everywhere.

Because that's where it already is, and that's what everyone wants it to stay as.

Your 'arguments' and 'questions are so irrational and illogical that I'm stunned you're even able to tie your own shoes in the morning.

The concensus has been that it's best for it to stay as is, since that's what already works for the small amount of people who would enjoy such content. It's about half the threads on /anon/; it doesn't even take up a full board, and you want it everywhere (or at least, are trolling about it so you can act like you're involved in this.) Why you ever got unbanned is so inexplicable and unexplainable that it staggers comprehension.
>> No. 164388 ID: febf77
It could also be a solution for /vinyl/ and /g/ to create serial threads for their respective departed boards, should they be eliminated.

That could be done but the only issue I could see coming out of this is the different topics. Like there could be a discussion about EDM and Metal going on in the same thread in the "/vinyl/ thread" and a discussion about Fallout and WOW in the "/g/ thread" at the same time. It could lead into some mix ups and what not.

Why are you so mad, and defensive. Also, I would suggest you stop harassing me. Comments about how I tie my shoes would not be allowed if they were directed at anyone else, and it just shows your own bias. If you don't want to answer my question, then don't. But you have no room to take your frustrations about my existence out on me.

My question is simple. If the reason sexual discussion is not allowed on /oat/ and /chat/ is because of our webhost not allowing it, then the necessary host change needed for this merger negates that. So why not allow sexual topics on those boards?

"No one else" is a blanket statement. And is patently false. If you mean to say "the mod staff doesn't want it there", that would be another thing entirely.

And if that's the case, why merge at all? If literally "no one" as you said yourself wants porn in Ponychan, then isn't it better to have two sites, one where porn is allowed and one where it's not. Trying to contain porn on one board while trying to keep the other boards caste just sounds like a quarantine, one we wouldn't need with two sites.
>> No. 164396 ID: a098c9
You are so willfully obtuse it's amazing. The "no one" refers to people who don't want it everywhere, which anyone with a shred of reading comprehension grasped. They *do* like the idea of having it here, just not fucking everywhere you trolling jerkoff. It is *already* exactly this way on mlpchan right now, already proving that 'two sites' aren't a necessity for it to work well. Just stop. Go away, no one wants to listen to your stupid tripe.

Paying for more than one URL costs money. It's easier and cheaper to create another board (which technically is another site). And it keeps the community together without shoving undesired things into the faces of people who don't want it.

The simple answer is that some people want it, some people don't. This allows them to choose in a convenient manner.

Your question has now been answered. If you don't like that answer, then well, guess there's nothing we can do to help you.
>> No. 164400 ID: 6ac3e8
That is what I was thinking should happen. If a poster wants to talk "music X" or "video game X" they should just make a thread for it. Having serial threads would be redundant.
>> No. 164401 ID: 643a77
There's really no need to get this upset.

My argument is that if the reason why discussing sexual topics was not allowed on Ponychan was because of the webhost, there's no real reason not to allow them on /oat/ or /chat/ after the merger. As it stands right now, we aren't allowed to discuss sexual topics at all. I can understand porn itself being relegated to one place, but sexual topics as a whole? That rule could stand some amending.

Listen to me here.


No one wants that. People don't want that. That is the reason. That is the reason we are not doing that. It is because people don't want that.

I suggest, if you want that, to go make another thread about it, where everyone can tell you that they don't want that.

Because the (one or two people talking like that) have an apt comparison to how Ponychan and it's reputation used to be (which is specifically what they're referring to, actually - the reputation, which was well earned and still lingers to this day) and there's a legitimate concern that people will still see "" as such.

But it sounds like you'd rather denigrate people with such concerns as unfriendly and unwilling to unify rather than prove them wrong and show how much Ponychan isn't like it's bad reputation anymore....

The reason has almost nothing to do with the webhost. The webhost is the reason why we couldn't have an /anon/. Now we can.

The reason we can't have sexual material everywhere on the site has been explained to you. There are enough people that don't want it to warrant it's isolation to one part of the site. Even if the webhost wasn't an issue, sexual things still would not be allowed everywhere for this reason.

It's pretty universally agreed that Tinyboard's world's better, by everyone with a functional understanding of software.

Or we could all agree that people should move past such silly, pointless, and stubborn perceptions and realize that you're all pretty much the same types of people and communities who happen to have a bad opinion of each other. And once you stop holding on to that ill-informed, badly formulated opinion you'll have a much richer and more enjoyable experience, together.

I can see that happening. I dunno it was just a thought in my head. Personally, I think we should do it without serial threads at first and if they are needed then it should be made.
Jesus fuck. I'll make a fucking comparison. On 4chan there are SFW and NSFW boards. Porn isn't allowed on SFW boards even though no one would mind it.

Just like on Ponychan. The /anon/ is our dedicated NSFW board and NSFW shit should just stay on their. Sure, no one would mind NSFW on /oat/ but people use this site at school and work and they don't want to see NSFW stuff while doing that.
They should remain separate because the /rp/ would get cluttered and it already works. Trust me, before the /ooc/ shit was all over the place.

Yeah, that's what they do currently. Occasional use of a trip is acceptable (and there are reasons for using one at times), but abuse of it does lead to warnings, then bans. Not if it's just a one off thing, obviously; the rest of the users 'inform' the trip poster of their cultural faux pas first.

It's sort of a vague name, which is good if we at some point distance ourselves from ponies, which will only become more and more likely as time goes on.

Hello everyone, I'm mainly an mlpchan poster. I've been looking around here, seeing what you all are like (since the last time I went to was years ago). I think Eel linked it earlier, but we're also having a meta thread about the potential merger. It's here:

We sorta realized how little cross-talk there is between threads, so I'd like to recommend we take care of any mutual discussion among posters there (since the board would theoretically operate on mlpchan's system, it'd be a good opportunity to get used to it / request features to be pulled from ponychan).

It seems to be a much better board structure for the most part. I'm not sure about the lack of an /ooc/ board, but it's been so long since I've RPed, my input may not be that valuable to that. I have always prefered OOC taking place in a separate board or chat in the years that I did RP though.

I like the axing of kusaba. Not using Tinyboard only really appealed to me when there were talks about rewrites, building our own framework for Ponychan, etc...and of course none of those projects ever fully got off of the ground.

>Personally, I'd be open to opening /chat/ up to regular posts as well as serials if there's enough demand for that instead of a renamed /gala/.
I'd personally think that would be better than a pure serial board. Either that or let them be in /oat/ and let /chat/ be its own thing. It's kinda hard to predict where they will naturally appear when merging two communities, and I trust others participating in this thread would understand better than I would.

Anyways, my head hurts. That's about all I'm contributing tonight. I like the concept of this and hope it goes well.

The water testing thread is going good on both website but I do have a question, are the secluded group from here aware of the issue ? Is there some word spreading work done, kinda like 'memo' ?

It wouldn't be fair if it was only /oat/ and /meta/ would have their say on it. Our secluded group and other board back on mlpchan are neutral/okish about it.

I still think we lack the input of your other board user.

Well at least two /gala/ threads seem aware of it, and we've only got maybe six active ones, I think. /pony/ won't care any. The rest of the boards are more for utility than socializing, I'm not sure they have what anyone would call a "community".

/g/ and /vinyl/ might care since we're talking about deleting them, though.

Cross and Lee are the new admins. We upgraded to Vichan and everything. Only problem is Lee is MIA a lot so not much bug fixing going on. /site/ doesn't have many answered threads.

I think it'd be cool to combine everyone again but the problem is /ef/ would be redundant much like /oat/ and /chat/ was here. Unless you wanted to go back to the non-pony random/pony random distinction.
>> No. 164494 ID: ef443b
Honestly I'd agree, I don't see how it will fit except being a middle between /oat/ and /anon/ in pretty much everything (allows trips more liberally, allows NSFW but nothing nearly as weird as some of /anon/'s stuff., etc.)
>> No. 164495 ID: 41811b
It could be the random board that allows porn but also nameposting, but even then its not really needed.
As much as I'd love it theres no reason for it. I doubt most of /ef/ would want to either.

It would help with my agenda of protecting /anon/ from a sudden overflow of Ponychan, but that would just mean that /ef/ would be temporarily flooded with Ponychan/MLPchan.
>> No. 164497 ID: febf77
Yeah, I mean, it would be cool to have people from efchan back, but the whole reason for /ef/ was a board with fewer rules than were on ponychan at the time, which would no longer be an issue with these new rules and /anon/, so it wouldn't really make sense to have an /ef/ too. The only people that would post in it would be the /ef/ circlejerk, which would kind of make a merger pointless, since they would still remain separate communities after it

/ef/ has been pretty good at running off the idiots, the rest of the people would be nice to get more traffic. I think it could deal. But again there really isn't a reason.
Yeah. The only possible way to distinguish it is /oat/ +porn and thats not enough.
>> No. 164499 ID: febf77
Yeah, and I'm not sure how much value there is in posting porn with a name vs posting porn anonymously. It doesn't seem like a name matters all that much for that, not enough to justify the creation of a new board anyway

He's concerned that there might be an influx of namefriends/tripfriends mucking about in /anon/ because lolwhynot, which wouldn't be fair to /anon/, as they'd mostly just stick to themselves and not be hurting anyone, and to screw around with their established subcommunity culture would be wrong.

Someone (Crimson?) mentioned this earlier in the thread, people that are abusing name and trips in /anon/ will probably get banned from /anon/.

I'm unsure.

MLPchan has catered to a particular audience--those who disagree with how things were ran here and wanted a less moderated experience with less moderated content--that was born from a desire to be what we weren't. I'm not sure how well it will blend together. What direction will it take and what atmosphere will it have? Community reception is something that worries me more than anything else.

How do you placate both groups? What you have is a solid start, but it's lacking in some of those details, details that are VERY important if this merger happens.

I do have to say that I'm happy with everyone selected to be mods. Couldn't have done better.

I'm not really sure how to tackle that specific problem of exactly where'd we fit in. Kinda attached to our board name. It's something we're eventually interested in working out, cause god knows we could use the injection of life in our stuffy circlejerk, but it's on the backburner until we see exactly where this ends.

They could just change /oat/'s name to /ef/, but I'm sure /oat/ is attached too. And as much as I want it and we could use the new blood, I don't see a majority of our users being on board.
We'll see how things fall and go from there, but I don't see it happening anytime soon if ever.

I agree. I am merely cautiously optimistic.
>> No. 164549 ID: febf77
I definitely don't think there's any lack of desire, having efchan back in the fold would be great and I know I'm not the only one that holds that opinion. It's just difficult to figure a logical way of doing it. Importing /ef/ would just be the /ef/ circlejerk on a new domain, and a redundant board at that. Not importing it would be a slap in the face to the efchan community. So I'm hopeful that there's a way of working it out in the future, but personally I can't see any way of doing it that would be beneficial to both groups

Nice to see you, Cross, btw
>> No. 164550 ID: 01d5b1

Maybe just put /ef/ at the top bar and have it direct to efchan, and maybe efchan put the other boards on their top bar, maybe off to the other side or something.
It wouldn't really be a merger but it would make it seem like we're closer, and then the next time /ef/'s hosting runs out or the admins quit we could revist the idea.

It'd also encourage crossposting more and would solve the issue of redundant board since its more like just linking a sister site.

I'm positive a solution is possible given time. As long as the community felt included and valued, I think a majority of us realize we're on a dead end trajectory. I definitely don't want more useless boards. Activity drives inclusion which drives a happy and creative community. The least number of boards is the best number of boards. If /ef/ did anything right, it was keeping itself to a single board for it's small size. Obvs that's not tenable with PC, but it illustrates the point. Like you said, the future will see it worked out.

I know that feel. I wish things hadn't gotten fucked in the first place so splitting into 3 sites wasn't even necessary. But communities have grown on those other sites in the interim and it's hard to find a way to give concessions to those communities and not disrespect them while still maintaining an optimal site structure

So there seems to be quite a few people on MLPchan's end who'd like the new site to not be named Ponychan. Can't say I disagree, really. It seems a bit odd for the merged site to use one of the old names instead of a completely new one IMO. What do y'all think about it? How many of pchan's posters would care if the name was changed?

I think MLPchan was originally on Ponychan and they were sort of unfortunately forced to choose a different name when they left because we still had ours. I think since MLPchan was 'thony's site and he's funding the new one, naming falls on him.

Really, though, Ponychan is a pretty great name. I don't know why anyone would not want it.

If Anonthony is the one that controls the hosting, thus if the site lives or dies, and we're more-or-less adopting all of MLPchan's rules no matter if they're for the good of our community or not, AND we're changing the name to something MLPchan wants... then this isn't a merger, it's MLPchan creating a new site and us being forced into joining it.

I'm lukewarm about everything else about this whole merger idea. I think we stand to lose much more than we have to gain, but I'm willing to ignore that in favor of other people's optimism, even if I feel its misplaced. But the name matters to me quite a bit. Leave it alone.

We're actually going to be SFW on all boards otherside /anon/ though. That's different from the mlpchan I live on today, despite what the rules say. So mlpchan is changing some of their behaviors too, or will be expected to at least.

For the record, I personally hope we use your name.

So what now we will change also the name of the site?
This is unacceptable.

This thing isn't merger anymore but a minority that wants to radically change everything in their new home.

Say what you want, but people are afraid and confused. Merger might be the nail to the coffin of the last ponychan's active communitites.

I'm overall against the merger.

Publicity issues, mostly.The reason I keep hearing over there is that the name ponychan has a lot of baggage and adopting a different name would be easier than convincing people that we're not awful anymore.

I think the idea is that we would come up with a possible new name together, not for them to pick it without our input. I wouldn't really mind having the site called MLPonychan or something similar. That's just me though.

That's pretty much what I think is going to happen too, but if it makes them feel better about merging I think we might as well go along with it. The name isn't that important to me, but I suspect I might be in the minority on that. Which is why I brought it up here.

Ponychan's SEO rankings are actually pretty shit. I don't really know why; according to Alexa, mlpchan's global rank is 95,158, and ponychan's is 312,581.

Either way, I think we kinda know that ponychan side considers the name a dealbreaker, just as mlpchan side considers /anon/ a dealbreaker. I think we can both accommodate each other.

>the name ponychan has a lot of baggage
>convincing people that we're not awful anymore

I must have missed something that happened before I started coming to this site in Summer 2011. What was the baggage, and how are we awful?

And just for the record, I would very much like to keep the porn and gore off this site. Anybody who wants that stuff knows where to find it. Playing with some restrictive rules and dancing along the edge of the abyss is part of the charm of /ponychan/.
>> No. 164615 ID: 9c04e5
>> No. 164616 ID: 518714
You have to affirmatively go into the Settings panel, check a box that says you want to see porn, and then go to /anon/. Anyone that doesnt do both of those things will never see porn anywhere on the site (except for people posting it in violation of the rules, in which case report it and it will be taken down)
>> No. 164617 ID: a098c9
Could someone please, other than marcy's pretty stretched argument about 'leak' and 'attraction', how having a single board, with only half it's threads, automatically and by default hidden from the rest of the entire site, allowing adult content, makes a handful of you so upset that you literally can't ignore it despite the complete and total and permanent invisibility to you it will automatically have?

It's seriously mindboggling. It defies comprehension. I can't grasp the kind of mental gymnastics and rigid thinking it takes.
>> No. 164618 ID: 5802da
I'll just say this.

The no porn rule, probably more than any other single policy, has been instrumental over the years in shaping ponychan's culture into what it has become.

I realize that the mlpchan crew think of nothing but horse pussy all day and will demand a place to post it. So, if a merger is really desirable, then containment might be the best option. But, even so, allowing porn on one board... it's like bringing a viper into your house to keep as a pet. Just make sure, make damn sure, that you keep it in its cage.

I advise you to be very aggressive about moderating any violations of the containment policy, because this issue really strikes to the heart of ponychan's culture.
>> No. 164619 ID: a098c9
That seems to have always and already been the plan.

Look, the reason is pretty simple: A lot of people here love ponies like daughters or sisters.

Having just one board where people can post pics (which are hidden by default and have to be opted into by clicking a "View Mature" box) of your daughter getting anally gangraped doesn't make it any less nausea-inducing.
>> No. 164624 ID: a098c9

If people here have a LITERAL mental perception of a cartoon character as their daughter, they need to be in a mental institution - not posting on an imageboard. I don't mean that in a rude way, but in the actual, legitimate, they need to be getting serious therapy and medication. And that still doesn't change the fact that these same people who are supposedly that sensitive also utilize derpibooru, ponibooru, reddit, and so on and so forth with the *exact* same setup, but somehow here it's a radically different story. No, that just doesn't jive with any kind of conscious awareness.

People can already do all that without jumping through hoops on a billion websites a few seconds away.
We can't build site functions around a minority with crazy attachments to imaginary characters. They'd never know the content was there unless they specifically looked for it.

Doubt we really need to drag speculations about the past into this.
The question is whether and how the "unified ponychan" can make an attractive and welcoming culture towards both chans as of now for the most part and possible newcomers.

I have no objections to people masturbating in private. Everybody does it. Nevertheless, I would prefer not to eat in a restaurant that I knew had a discreet private room in the back devoted to masturbation, used periodically by my fellow diners. Is the analogy clear?
>> No. 164635 ID: 5802da

Who said anything about literally? It's just how the emotions work out. You claim to be trying to understand people who worry about the porn, but you don't sound to me like you're trying very hard at all. Or rather, you're trying to understand emotions in terms of rational reasons. But you'll never get anywhere that way.

Besides, couldn't I say, with exactly as strong an argument as the one you're making: "If people LITERALLY find cartoon horses sexually attractive, they need to be in a mental institution, etc."? Just saying, it cuts both ways.

>these same people who are supposedly that sensitive also utilize derpibooru, ponibooru, reddit, and so on and so forth with the *exact* same setup, but somehow here it's a radically different story

Those sites were never SFW. Becoming NSFW does not represent a change from the norm for them. Further, using a site does not mean integrating into its community and thinking of it as a sort of home. You can use those sites without ego-investing into their communities.

What's more, I think you already know all of this, and you're just ignoring it. So, it seems to me that you're trying to paper over legitimate disagreements on this issue by pretending that there's an obvious "rational" way to do things, nuances be damned.

If you take a damn minute and just try to think about these things from someone else's point of view, you'll get the answers you claim you're looking for.

Utter, absolute conjecture.
This community was built by people banned from 4chan, 8chan isn't dead, you'll find plenty of opposition for 'clean and jerk free' and there ARE still going to be strict rules.

/anon/ does not remotely affect you unless you want to post there. Throwing a fit over it is like religious folk throwing a fit over gay couples.

It doesn't affect you in the slightest, and you have no reason for it to not be her than 'I don't like this thing'.

Because shock horror, some people like it.
The thing about running websites is that you have an entire community to provide for, not just vocal minorities.

Most restaurants have discreet private rooms where people piss and shit, including the staff. Your analogy is absurd.
>> No. 164637 ID: a098c9
For that matter, when they never even have to see it, acknowledge it, or know it's existing, at all, ever.

My guess is that there's a small but dedicated and vocal community of grown men who pretend and act like they're kids and think of cartoons as their children. Which is cringeworthy, yes, but also really, really sad in a way that's hard to describe.
And yet you seem to have no objections to sites like reddit, derpibooru and the like. And your analogy is erronious anyways since it compares "posting stuff I like" to something benign like eating, and "posting stuff I don't like" (when I never even have to acknowledge or see it) to something unseemly.

Jeez. Why can't you people realize you're grown men (and maybe some women) and stop the grandstanding.

I'm not looking for 'answers' from you; you've already acknowledge that it isn't about reason, rationality or logic at all, but ego driven emotions.

>Most restaurants have discreet private rooms where people piss and shit, including the staff. Your analogy is absurd.
