Here's a thought. Don't fix what isn't broken. The site's fine with Ponychan X. Not MLPchan's coding.

The new site design seemed to work a lot faster and more efficient than the current one.

It had most of the same things that pX had, as well.

The problem is they decided to launch it in the middle of the day, right as the episode was airing, and kept switching it back and forth, causing posts to disappear.

There's a whole bunch of discussion in a thread on the new site design that is currently inaccessible.

Mods, stahp.

Ran fine for me as is. I just don't get why we have to change to exactly what MLPchan is currently. That to me, doesn't feel like a merger, feels more like a takover.

MLPchan's code is a lot better than Ponychan. I'm okay with switching to that, but not this way, seriously.

I think you're placing your feelings (Perfectly respectable, though!) about the issue, over a simple software matter.


I couldn't get to my home thread as the stream was started, missed a link to the stream, also couldn't rant about the stream and couldn't find a link, and other shit.

I could probably still have watched ponies, but eh.

Tangy is right on the software, but also most of the new site mods are Ponychan mods by a margin, It's a totally diffrent structure. And it's easier to start with MLPchans codebase and add on any missing features from there.

Alrighty then, you want it, you got it.

The staff's goal was for this merge to be done by time the premiere aired. Unfortunately (and I was not aware of this until today), that meant it would have to be rushed out the door faster than was realistically practical, and too many corners were cut trying to make this happen.

This morning I got a message saying the new server was ready to go. I pointed the dns at the new server, but there were bugs and many missing features. When I became aware of that fact and saw people complaining and we were still fighting fires with the Tinyboard code an hour later, I switched the site back to what works.

I've been pretty hands-off with the nitty-gritty tech details of this merge, but I still should have done more due diligence before pushing the big red button. From here on out, I'll test and verify things more thoroughly, to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.

We don't have to cut corners or rush things. Yes, it's too bad we couldn't hit this big deadline, but it isn't the end of the world. I'm not going to stick everyone on an unfinished server while the kinks are still being worked out. The time to fix bugs is before a launch, not after. OG Ponychan has served us reliably for close to 5 years now. It can last us a few more days until the new stuff is ready for prime time.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Well the main thing is that a bunch of /gala/ threads randomly 404'd. Not all of them, though, some of them still worked. And Story popped up again partway through, but the rest were still missing.

Embeds were weird, I know, and I was getting connection errors throughout, though that might have been attempts to fix stuff.

Probably should've made a list while stuff was happening.

I was under the impression that the technical problems with the launch were mostly dealt with by the time you rolled things back, with the only detail being missing features like an edit function on posts.

I'm not a code monkey. It's hard enough for me to understand, explaining it would be even more difficult. But the basic structures of Macil's code are far superior and more workable than Kusaba. A couple glitches at implementation doesn't mean we have to throw out the baby.

You're right, it just gets annoying how people who aren't coders and haven't seen the code keep insisting the mlpchan's code is so much better because they were told that at some point. Orange did a lot of custom work on our's. A LOT. And we're losing it all.

The themes were in the process of being added.
The themes that were available "Straight out of the box" were the ones built for tiny-board.
Our current themes are not compatible because they use different terms and values, they have been translated as far as i am aware, just not implemented yet.

By "Technical problem" i meant something that prevented regular functioning of the site, such as threads 404ing, being unable to post or images not appearing and what not.
Sorry for not being clear and seeming to move the goalposts right now.

Bugs like that, while annoying, are liveable and personally a lot more preferable to rolling things back and causing straight up 404's everywhere, which is only going to happen again when the switch happens again.
At which point, a bug will occur that the coders didn't catch and will have to deal with then and there or rolling things back a second time.

Its my opinion that the site should not have been reverted and we should have gathered the list of bugs and suggestions from users right then and there instead of faffing about and wasting everybody's time with these roll backs.

The switch shouldn't have happened then and i take partial blame for that since i was told it was happening beforehand, but believed it would be done in time for the premier instead of happening almost literally as it started.
But we orange also shouldn't have figuratively flipped the table on the whole thing simply because things didnt work right 100% off the bat.
Things will never work right 100% straight away, especially for a relatively big project like this and to expect such is just ridiculous.

Rolling things back essentially made the entire bullshit entirely pointless except to show everyone how incompetent the site staff are since we didn't get the chance to try and deal with things before orange pulled the plug on it despite everyone telling him that rolling back was a dumb idea.

I've dove deep into both Tinyboard's code and Ponychan's. Tinyboard has the better architecture, but only slightly so. It makes sense, if either ponychan or mlpchan has to lose their code, for the new site to use the codebase with the stronger foundation. On the features side though, ponychan is way ahead. Like, there's not even a contest. A good size chunk of that is in the moderation tools and spam-fighting code and such. If the mods want to make themselves suffer, I don't really care, but I think we can wait for the bugs to be fixed and for some of the more prominent user-facing features I've seen mentioned to be implemented. Macil's good at what he does, the new code will be ready before you know it. And when the switch happens for real, we won't be racing the clock and cutting corners everywhere, so we won't have random 404s and broken links and glitches and the server will be tested beforehand and everything will just work 100% straight out of the gate and it will be glorious. Getting huge projects like this done right takes time and patience, but it's definitely doable and the market pays very well for it. There's no need to rush through this. The internet will still be here tomorrow.

You can change what works, as long as what you're changing to also works. Ideally you would make that change in a well-paced, controlled manner and test it out beforehand so you know for sure.

Yes, the /chan/ bug was fixed, but only after I reverted back to the working site. It was there for over an hour. You can't tell me you honestly wanted to hang the userbase out to dry on a buggy (or worse - inconsistently, unpredictably buggy) site on season premiere day. Jesus Christ. Be thankful you have a reliable site to whine at me on.

Are we talking about the same bug?
I'm talking about threads 404ing despite being shown on the board page.

Because macil literally fixed that once he became aware of it, threads stopped 404'ing and people could post again.
Aside from that, no serious bugs were reported in the short time the switch had happened.
I was in the process of making bugfix and suggestion threads before you rolled things back despite everyone elses protests.

And you still havent answered the question.

What still needs to be done?

Maybe we're talking about two different bugs. Doesn't matter. What matters is, they existed, and macil was still finding more even after I switched the site back to the working one. No doubt there are more where those came from. And they will be found and fixed, and a properly paced deployment and beta period will occur so we can catch the unknowns that can't be found without, you know, actually testing things out a bit before jumping in headfirst without properly preparing. Now that there's no self-imposed deadline, what needs to be done is a good old fashioned smoke test, as well as catching up on some of the functionality gaps people have been mentioning such as the ones around 12:20 in the skype chat. I mean seriously buddy quit worrying, the merge will still happen. It's not like people are going to suddenly forget about it if it doesn't happen RIGHT NOW. This has been planned for months. A few more days won't kill you

My april fools day joke was probably a mistake. I should have posted the beta link for real a few days later than april 1, and then people would have tried it out and we would have had more eyeballs on the new site and we could have caught these show-stoppers earlier and avoided having a non-working site during the premiere.

I PM'd him more than 4 hours ago. No response. And it's saturday night so I'm going out soon, but that's okay, the merge is not cancelled and macil is probably coding and making progress as we speak and the internet will still be here tomorrow and we don't need to rush things and everything will be okay

  So...from what I understand, the "bugs" (I didn't really see any when the new site was implemented?) and some features will be implemented into the new code before the site will change again?

When's that going to happen?

Well said.

Just to make things abundantly clear, my criteria for moving ahead is a reasonably working site that isn't a significant downgrade in functionality from what we have now. As long as I'm still the owner, that's the next bar to hit, and it's a goal I think it's reasonable to wait for and that I believe/hope can be hit within a week, which should be plenty soon enough for anyone, especially considering how long this has been in the works before today.

And now I take off.

"within a week" sounds like it's dangerously close to causing the same deadline panic of getting it out before (or just as) the new episode is starting. So if you have it ready next Saturday, maybe just wait until Sunday?

Every second that passes without the merge happening is attributable to Orange dragging his feet, jerking around or just not being around to hand off to Fenolio & Macil - either willfully or just because he's Orange. That's where we are at this point, and that should be a pretty strong indicator (for Ponychan's side at least) of one huge reason this merge is so badly needed.

It looks like we're just throwing all the blame onto orange, but it literally is entirely his fault we're not merged right now and have nothing to say about it.

That sounds awfully salty.

Wasn't it shifted back due to some issues? Even if they've all been fixed it looks like there are still minor issues that can be worked on even if the merge hasn't happened yet, such as adding themes and whatnot.

Actually, it's Macil. Features are/were simply not ready and as such, Macil never contacted Orange saying things were ready. Macil kinda took a break on working on the merge for a week.

Yeah, they weren't on beta. They're coded to work properly on Tinyboard (with minor changes to some less used themes) but haven't been added to the beta site yet.
>> No. 166023 ID: a8f6e3
He flat out said the only 'issues' were those themes, the one or two ponychan specific 'text markups' (aka the rcv and shit) and a password-importing issue that was non-critical. The only reason he didn't want to go again was due to the original spergout-rollback last Saturday since that seemed to indicate that OJ wasn't going to go for it unless everything was perfect and on his schedule. I can see why mac would feel that way given how it went down.

Here's how i understand things after i've slept on it.

Orange wants everything to be perfect.
So does Macil, either because of the former or because he wants things to be perfect himself.

It's been argued that we should we merge asap and sort out those minor bugs afterwards, and the rebuttal was "Chill out, a few days waiting wont kill us."

Which wouldn't be so bad except we're waiting on "The ability for users to edit and delete their own posts.", "implementing themes." "Ponychan specific markup like orange/purple text, rcv, shy and sar."
Thats literally it, that's been literally it since last week since neither of them apparently worked on it this past week due to personal issues.

When asked for a final word on when things would merge, macil said:
"The things I listed aren't going to take so long. Probably a comparable amount of time as it takes to actually do the merger again."
I asked if that was roughly 4-5 hours of work and he didn't get back to me, so assume it will happen any time between now and the universe's heat death.

TLDR: Nothings changed, programmers are still buttheads, i'm still a bag of salt.

if you ever want the merger to work, you're gonna have to make the merger go on and run its course.

yes, im looking at you, orange.

changes can always be made and fixes can always be done.

but sitting here dragging your feet is completely counterproductive. not only that how are we suppose to even discover these bugs if were not merged?

it's like getting keys to test drive a new car, but just leaving it there for weeks

the merger is very much ready at this point.

but doing this because -YOU- feel it isnt perfect, is selfish and not only that, a complete slap in the face of the people who spent months on end of work trying to make this work

i fully get it's a double-edge sword. we either get stuck with kotsuba's shitty outdated software or based tinyboards software with a few unimportant bugs that can be fixed in no time (which macil has already corrected one stupid bug retro brought up just today).

idk about you. but i think more people wanna see this thing underway

just my two-cents on the matter
>> No. 166037 ID: 94db52
Ok, just throwing that out there, the way I'm reading it orange wants it to be more feature-rich under the hood. With spam protection and mod tools and that just as much if not more than user tools.

I really don't know what our code is like other than not-kusaba so I can't say anything.
>> No. 166038 ID: a8f6e3
Judging by the /meta/ threads throughout the last whenever bringing up the CP spam and whatnot, I don't see how 'spam protection' is an issue regardless, or that has ever been brought up in reference to the merge. Ponychan's clearly no better than anywhere else and Ive seen no comparison by anyone saying another code is worse.
As for mod tools, I think that's more a consequence of Ponychan's history - the simple fact is, ponychan has had a long and documented history of rigid rules, harsh ban practices and overzealous use of those bans, which has ended up requiring numerous means of enforcing all those rules and bans. It's required an arsenal of 'weapons'. That's probably the one area in which orange spent a good deal of time developing, as opposed to whatever else. Whereas the documented and accepted enforcement elsewhere has been relaxed, with actual bans being few and far between, resulting in and requiring far less insofar as 'weapons' for enforcement, leaving the development to pretty much every other aspect of the site.
Regardless of this, I can only say that if inconsequential and non-critical things like one or two themes or royal canterlot voice is what's truly holding this back, that's beyond stupid and I feel like macil is just trying to be deferent to orange until this actually happens, because we're pretty much where we were last time, except macil is reticent to say 'ok' due to the way orange made his 'executive decision' and pulled us back before, and now he probably feels like he can't do it unless everything is 'perfect' (as if any coding project is perfect out of the gate) because it'll risk another spergout and pull back which would piss everyone off even more. And as far as I know, he hasn't finalized whatever deal orange wants to hand off the domain ownership, or if orange is going to or has asked for any money or what that amount is going to be.
So basically that's what's preventing it at this point it seems. We could theoretically go *right now* if they would both accept 'this isn't a million dollar software launch, it's not going to be a million percent perfect' and 'yes, you and fenolio are now owners of the domain, go ahead and change the account/password and i will bow out.'

Well, I know MLPchan has just as bad of problems with this. I don't know though. I think he may be referring to <insert male enhancement product name> and things like that more than the CP spammers which have unique IPs and unique images every time.

Either way, I personally agree. I actually like sartalics sometimes when I'm trying to make it extraclear that I'm not serious, but it isn't anything to worry over.

I want the merger already personally. This is probably just because I care way more than I should and not indicative of the state of the whole thing and is just anticipation, but it still is my personal preference.

Absolutely no problems with orange as a guy nor do I find it absolutely abhorrent that he is keeping the site for now since it was inkwell's decision to give it back, but it seems like its time if what everyone is saying is to be believed

I have no idea about MLPchan's spam protection, or what is up on the merged site, but Ponychan's at least used to stop hundreds of random bot spam posts a day (designer handbags, diet pills, male enhancement etc.). Targeted, low-volume CP spam is different, and can't easily be stopped by an automated system. Of course, I would be surprised if there wasn't already something similar in place for MLPchan.

That's not a valid concern when all of the mods can work with what MLPchan has for mod tools, and more features can be added back in later.

I think they were being facetious, as in, 'how do you keep the prisoners in line with so few weapons?!' Again, mlpchan hasn't had a need for so much as ponychan has; hopefully the 'new' ponychan won't have that much need either due to the rule and policy reforms.

Either way, from what it sounds like, Macil's just been busy with personal stuff and this is some really easy stuff to do once they get around to it. Yeah, there's been a couple more delays, but just chillax and we'll have stuff soon(tm).

OKay. Don't get me wrong here.

Ponychans modtools are way fucking nicer then MLPchans.

Like holy shit I can do so much less on MLPchan then I can do here.

But it's not anything important enough that the merger needs to be delayed. I can still ban people, do IP searches, the report list works fine.

Most of the things missing are shit like, Mods can't put up blotter messages, undelete things, be it posts or threads, we can't see deleted posts and threads unless it's through an IP search. There's no lockdown mode like what Pchan has in case of spam the filters aren't catching. There's no Name/tripcode searching for users that have changing IPs. There's no Ban-by-name option. We can't set up our own image bans, we can't rebuild boards on our own.

There's no one menu for all the stickied/locked threads. All of those have to be done manually if we want to change them.

Again, a lot of the really nice features that can be added in later when all the user-side features are up to date.

None of that is worth holding up for, since most of it would probably take some time to get working.

You rushed the merge, he trusted your word on it, and it broke the shit out of everything. So surprise!

but FFS, if you say you're gonna do something. do it. or at the very least' give an update about it

but doing literally nothing is counter-productive and honestly it's a huge dick move. the merge was going fantastic before orange decided to roll-back. we had maybe two or three UNIMPORTANT bugs that were fixed before he even rolled back

honestly with all the bugs we have here now, the lessor evil is STILL tinyboard lmao

It's funny that it's not even that, though. Orange has actually been present and fairly responsive. Checks to see if anyone needs him every day. When Macil is ready to push the button, I don't doubt that Orange will flip the switch he needs to. Despite kicking this off with what I think was a mistake with the rollback, it's not like he's holding up the merge at this point.

The problem with the merge stemmed from a slight difference in the structure of the urls (ponychan has a /chan/ and mlpchan doesn't), which made things 404 when pchan threads were transferred over.

IT was a messy bug but was easy to fix, and was fixed by the time the plug got pulled.
The rest is just mod features >>166051 which the pchan mod staff has agreed they don't really need anyway.

It works and we have what we need: that's been the status for near two weeks and nothing has happened. We haven't even been given any sort of guidelines on what more is expected.

>Orange is being a responsible developer and site owner and you're all just pissing all over him for it.
A responsible developer and site owner would give regular updates to his site staff on the condition of important topics.
A responsible developer and site owner would know when pulling or going ahead with a change would be more appropriate.
A responsible developer and site owner would not purposely antagonise the other staff members when they have legitimate grievances.
A responsible developer and site owner would not completely ignore the opinions of the rest of his staff.

>You rushed the merge.
No, he, macil and I did, since the three of us knew it would happening that day.
Although in my defence, i didn't know it would happen almost literally as the episode started.

>And it broke the shit out of everything.
There was a minor url error and all of the boards did not rebuild initially due to the server trying to rebuild the entire site at once.
These were both fixed before or within the hour of the merge being rolled back, the only thing wrong with the merge at that point is the lack of features such as ponychans themes, specific markup such as ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE and the edit / deletion of posts by users.

And orange knew this, he knew exactly what was missing from the merge and he considered that reason enough to pull it.

From what i can gather, that plus the reactions of a few people in the chaos of the merger has spooked macil enough that he wants everything perfect before things merge for real.

This, orange has been present and responsive, albeit there is nothing for him to do right now until macil gives the go ahead.

>In fact, if we wanted it wasn't even an option. We were told we were going to get it and that was that.
There were like, at least two huge threads on ponychan alone just discussing the topic.
It was never a "We're doing this, suck it faggots." but instead a "We want to do this, what do you think faggots?" and i tried to make that as clear as possible every time i talked with people.

If we'd been told to fuck off en-masse, it wouldn't have been done, simple as that.

Oi, is that crap really needed?

I think most of that was a result of the pretty abysmal timing on implementation, though. If you launched it, say, today, rather than at the beginning of the season premier, people wouldn't get any more upset than they do when the site's completely down from random bugs or there's some forced theme change on /oat/.
