Dolores has crossed over. What was once a wide gulf has been crossed. She is the ultimate bridge master, for within a year, we reached 10 times our original goal.

It's been a time, hasn't it my fellow anon or should I say anons? . As small as it is, I cannot help but feel a little pride for this moment. I keep it in perspective of course, but I am happy we got here

Now as we move forward, regardless how long the /end/ or /pone/ last, may we reach to 4000!

Cadence can't believe it that we...

reached...

3000!

At first I though it couldn't have been sportschan, it's not a GET and it's not in the tracker. Seems like I was mistaken. Moved out of endchan, but couldn't forget your home after all, could ya?

>>3001
Have a precomposed post ready in the reply-box before the get, don't leave a gap of 13 minutes like you did, just small piece of advice for the future.

so they have a tracker just to fuck up with the digits in several places and. At least, the shitpost was manual to the rules but damn, they are speculators of GETS. Good to know, it´s never too late to discover what their database of warnings.

They are also using the next GET for mlpol.....so I guess /endpone/ won´t be the only ones to get exposed to this device whenever this reaches the 10000 mark so I wouldn´t consider the theft too personally. Mostly because they are people who suck the fun out of them (not only here by the way).

Also,you are right, he moved out from endchan and left /sp/ dead.

Fortunately enough, I didn´t need these tools in order to achieve 7 digits on /mlp/ so this stuff barely matters in comparison to previous obsessions with it, much more after noticing the tracker.


>Have a precomposed post ready in the reply-box before the get, don't leave a gap of 13 minutes like you did
the board owner is right,you know. Basically >>3002,have it prepared in a Word document and leave the board a little bit inactive before getting into it. Opening a thread and then having a 13 minute time lapse for the celebration is a lot for getting digits. Much more when /pone/ has turned as one of the main boards from this place.

Even without the rounded post, one cannot deny that trajectory behind this board. The funniest achievement is that the owner of this board has decided to stay a little bit more active after watching this rhythm. I don´t know if he would have thought we would arrive at this mark (neither I).

I wouldn´t have bet for a month yet the same three anons are here shitposting about cute ponies while Celestia is getting a bigger HI Anon! face that occupies like three quarters of my screen. The bridge meme is just something that well, for just one simple wordfilter, all of this happens.

>It's been a time, hasn't it my fellow anon or should I say anons?
In theory, we are three: Bridgefag, L23 and the owner, who is the first owner back in 2016 >>22 or >>257, and I believe that the latter is the one posting these days.

By the way, his only rule is:
>Do not post any boner-inducing pictures in the OP.
well, I´ve seen less tolerant mods than this.

Anyway...

>As small as it is, I cannot help but feel a little pride for this moment. I keep it in perspective of course, but I am happy we got here
you said that you felt like a nobody as a fan back then. If we consider that this bridge started in >>273, you can make the math.
If we take into account that around 100 posts approximately have been made by outsiders, spammers, random visitors etc, it means that the two main users have shitposted around 1300 messages during the entire year.
Sure, those are few messages but some of them have entire holy bible contained between the lines.

>Regardless how long the /end/ or /pone/ last, may we reach to 4000!
I don´t know how that will happen, the less that you think about it, the faster you get over there. What matters the most is that meme thread has been created and while I didn´t expect it to happen today (what a madman, RIP MS Paint), it was bound to happen someday.

I guess the brony fanbase,even if it´s small, refuses to die....for another year....

Actually neither of them just the >>273 guy. The board was ownerless one year ago when all of this started, and I grabbed it at the start of January.
I didn't set up any extra rules, basically left everything coasting as-is, spare for adding and deleting few banners, and deleting all wordfilters spare one (you know which one).
There are some rules in https://endchan.xyz/pone/rules.html made by the old 8chan mods, I haven't bothered doing anything with them. If you fancy I can put some code of yours there, should you feel the need to have "the law" materialised. Or delete them altogether, or leave them be, whatever really.

This board didn't need any form of moderation for entire year besides un-checking one box to allow duplicate files and deleting like 3 posts tops. And adding banners. All I'm doing is nothing more than what qualifies as simply squatting the board.

Agreed. Considering /pone/ has been number 2 on board rankings for the past couple of days I should've been more careful. In my partial defense, it was 4am and I had only decided to post rashly over a little uncertainty over if I had time to do it later.

I wouldn't have bet it either. Now things feel like this board is evolving and gradually gaining in power level. I can't believe that one year later, the triad has been reunited. It feels like meme magic if you pardon the often overspammed /pol/ and /b/ saying.

One thing that confuses me is, if you where the board owner, how was L23 able to do things like change the CSS? It seemed like he had some kind of secondary mod powers or something, or am I super retarded

You helped create this very meme by doing that.

In away that's the best type of mod. Thanks for adding the banners and stuff and not letting somepony else claim this board.

I struck because there was some stuff that arose that threatened my ability to do it before new years. It wasn't that I couldn't post but I was not sure I'd get another chance to just sit and post like crazy, as I noticed it getting closer and closer I decided just to aim for it then.

I was using GIMP with a crappy drawing tablet that doesn't seem to entirly work with my OS, but yeah it's the same result.

What do you have in mind? April Fools perhaps? I mean, there are still few people left listed as Board Volunteers (I haven't removed them, didn't see a reason to), but only BO is able to set CSS as far as I know.

so....you were the one who shitposted it and at the same time, you claimed it and left after the race for the 300 mark...

are you aware of what you have created?

>spare for adding and deleting few banners, and deleting all wordfilters spare one (you know which one)
alright, I did notice that part.

>There are some rules in https://endchan.xyz/pone/rules.html made by the old 8chan mods, I haven't bothered doing anything with them. If you fancy I can put some code of yours there, should you feel the need to have "the law" materialised. Or delete them altogether, or leave them be, whatever really.
alright, we have usually applied the 3 global rules and reported spam or flood (in this case, double posts for the most part and spammers who not only do it for this board but on several).

The NSFW rule is a pretty questionable one, mostly because there were anons shitposting that without spoilering when 8chan mods were there >>22, not to mention that I did it as well before. I was either thinking about applying that rule in general but as for dedicated NSFW thread, it doesn´t apply. I don´t know, that one is a grey zone because by browsing a chan, in theory you should be over 18 or at least, know how imageboards in general work in this day and age. It depends how much flexibility one should follow with this one.

The problem I find with the 6th rule is that this board has found activity because of metaposting (a huge circlejerk, I am not going to lie) and off topic stuff and after that, create pony content from those posts. Not to mention that Ponychan has huge circlejerks and an entire boards for off topic stuff with ponies in the cover.

The biggest problems that the /end/ might find are spammers and outsiders who barely give a shit. Those rules anyway are a good standard if it went in a chaotic rhythm.

As for now, leave them as a guidebook for messy situations and avoid disasters. These are my comments and I still find the 3rd global rule as the most practical one.

>This board didn't need any form of moderation for entire year besides un-checking one box to allow duplicate files
yeah, I actually posted a couple of pics in /operate/ and mentioning that this board had a big problem with the duplicated files and at least myself don´t have a huge gallery of ponies to shitpost so I use repeated ones at times. Also the notification was getting somewhat unbearable and consumed us a bit.

>and deleting like 3 posts tops. And adding banners. All I'm doing is nothing more than what qualifies as simply squatting the board.
I´ve seen more chaotic squatters even though you were here right at the beginning of the 300 project. What I ask myself is how much you have lurked of the posts made around here meanwhile.

ouch that hurts in retrospective because you are shitposting tonight and you could have left it at >>2991 and do the shitpost (even though I thought you would require just one).

Shitposting at the 4am is more or less midday around Europe. I was talking to myself that you were a madman for doing that and I could have mobileposted during those 11 minutes as well. And definitely /pone/ holds a pretty active status these days. Nothing in comparison to last year when this board was found at the 2nd page....

>>3018
>Now things feel like this board is evolving and gradually gaining in power level.
yep
>I can't believe that one year later, the triad has been reunited.
that´s the funniest thing and I pointed out several times that there was someone behind and that the mods were putting the banners because of our activity. Turns out that in the /end/, it was the 3rd shitposter,the owner himself. It´s never too late to realize a few truths before the ending of this fascinating, yet consuming as hell for two MLP shitposters.

>It feels like meme magic if you pardon the often overspammed /pol/ and /b/ saying.
nah, there had to be some kind of activity in the meantime. This is why I ask myself if the 6th rule should be that harsh,mostly because the meta posts have translated into content. I wouldn´t have written the Mirror of Fire if it wasn´t because of the political (yet we realized they were excessive, feeling burnt out in September) posts.

>let the meme continue on and see how it goes.
8 years of lifetime behind sound ancient for the internet age, let alone the meme category when there are memes that barely last a month.

>how was L23 able to do things like change the CSS? It seemed like he had some kind of secondary mod powers or something, or am I super retarded
alright, now about me (L23 or that Spanish guy who is still surprised to shitpost the holy bible in English over here).
Okay, the only time I have had the moderation in my hands was on Nextchan. I don´t like having the power because I don´t use it that well, I prefer being a supporter or one that makes loyal observations in the 2nd row. I have just served as if I had to act as the leader whenever there is no leader nor direction to go.
I hardly had any rule in mind but reporting the shitposts and spam. I deleted the edits of a Celestia pic but then I reuploaded them because someone (or maybe karma) would reveal them instead so I went in and posted them again. I have an account on endchan and the only function I have used is for deleting my own posts. The rest is beyond my functionality as a user.

I cannot change the CSS at all because that´s up to the owner himself (from my experience on Nextchan) and I was constantly pointing out the mods for listening to us when in reality, the 3rd shitposter or owner was behind all of those changes in the banners. I only made a petition on /operate/ and that was the double post annoyance because it limited way too much the shitposts and ponies we wanted to show, forcing us to bring a new image every single time from Derpi.

>>3020

No, not created, I wouldn't say that. It wasn't one man effort, but group effort, pulled forward almost exclusively by You two. More like gave a nudge in a right direction, if you want to give the appropriate credit. It's like invent vs discover kind of thingy, in a way.

Got it.

Well can't promise something I'm not in control over. Kind of like the liability disclaimer you see in every ToS.

>What I ask myself is how much you have lurked of the posts made around here meanwhile.
Mostly breezing through the front page once every few weeks. I haven't read any of the fics you two written, spare for most recent one. Which is mostly the reason why I haven't posted anything at all, being so behind on the culture of the board.
>>3056 >>1142
Actually I've got a cringy story to spare related to April's CSS that's on topic of the above.
I asked if you would like to see some more permanent custom CSS, and you replied you'd like to see something based on what you have already produced. And as I said before, I haven't read any of the fics, so being so unaccustomed, I simply put "ran away". It wasn't before around September or so until I started lurking more regularly that's why the duplicate file fix took so long you even posted on /operate/ before I fixed it.
So there you go, stupid and cringe as hell, but maybe you will have a single laugh out of it.

it dignifies you saying those lines of awareness and having the feet on earth. But keep in ming that if there were no replies at that time, I would have probably got bored or forgotten about this place and stayed on /mlp/ all the time.

at least, make it seem like you try (even if it´s for saying "an attempt was made")

>I haven't read any of the fics you two written, spare for most recent one. Which is mostly the reason why I haven't posted anything at all, being so behind on the culture of the board.
feel free to consume them or whatever. While they don´t sum up 100% the board, you would know where their writers could come from. Instead of writing about the mane 6, the /end/ has focused more on alternative characters, especially the princesses, the most important ones are already mentioned in the OP of NMAiE save the last one written in December.

>I simply put "ran away". It wasn't before around September or so until I started lurking more regularly that's why the duplicate file fix took so long you even posted on /operate/ before I fixed it.
huh, really funny. It´s like: "I don´t know shit about this, gotta go fast and leave this place before touching anything".

Not a bad strategy though I´ve got to admit. Retiring when you have time left before making mistakes is a win and you avoid all the problems.

If you still asked the custom CSS or even material drawn for the board, we would ask for the same stuff: the wordfilter, Cadence as a bat, Celestia, Amore, etc; basically things that we have been posting during this entire year, even if it´s something minimally related to them.

alright, that message is cool and all but I am just saying, that´s formal as hell for a chan format. It feels like I am reading a message from the Mod team from their blog page....and you are just one owner.
And I have stayed loyal for...I don´t know, several reasons that would take me a lot of time to explain. Just that prevention and an archive (wish list for the future) and call it for a day.

>Honest or full PR answer?
It´s a kind of Pony Christmas.....
okay, I was just typing it effortless by saying that if you read them, it´s for entertainment, get something out of them (message, context, understanding....), I don´t know. Those fics represent a reflect of our minds and the closest thing to the most "original"(everything has been invented) content from this place.

I only say that if you are going to consume them, feel free to experience them to the fullest and reading the self criticism and posts related to them.
They haven´t even been posted on FiMFiction yet and I have been wondering if someday, we could compile them into a pastebin.

>it's not possible to run away forever. That'd simply be awesome.
mostly because if you run away too much, you will find a place in which you cannot escape even if you try....because that same place is the one you had visited before.....

>still no idea whatsoever how to transfer those from one medium into another.
ideas spark randomly. Just whenever you have one or feel like doing something, test it and see how it goes.

>but my influential power clique!
let´s see how you can defend yourself. I prefer reporting posts and let the mods check if they are worthy to delete or not instead of having the full power. I am a bad leader actually.....but as a supporter, the situation changes...

Well it was full PR mode™, and seems like it did its job.

>archive
You and me had the same thought. Arguably, it wouldn't be very hard to whip up some crude JSON-based archiver, just gotta have enough will to do it. Other than this you can always save the more important board moments on archive.is or web.archive.org.
As far as disasters are concerned, I have contemplated keeping the previous board vols as-is, because in rare case of a raid and an even rarer case of any of them coming back here 4 men is way more than one to stop a flood from sliding content from the board although I set up 4 threads per hour creation limit too, although if moderation weren't active daily and the flood would be persistent enough this would't be effective.
On the other hand board vols can easily wipe entire board clean, and those 4 men are 3 that aren't me so I may never know whether one of them one day decides to have mass deletion urges...
Kind of weird and very edge-case scenario decision to make, although with each passing day the second option is growing on me, because out of two extremely unlikely scenarios, the former is at least order of magnitude less likely than the latter.

>it´s a kind of Pony Christmas.....
Well if you ever decide on which version of the answer you want, you know who to call.

>let´s see how you can defend yourself
Technically I don't have to, because board's approval is not a necessary condition to keeping the power[spoiler] keeping users on the board is another thing[/spoiler] Vote for democracy today.

>I am a bad leader actually
Isn't that judgement for the subordinates to make, actually?

We are not part of the selectorate (those you have to please to keep power), but the global mods and admin are, and it is possible we could remove you through that rout though I'm taking this is all in jest

Would we have it archived somewhere else? Another site? If we went that rout.

Nothing to worry about.

That's true. Just take a look at /sudo/. It's full of those threads. Though I'm guessing here, by a virtue of being a smaller chan, the global moderation is less detached from the userbase, and would respond to such request more promptly.

>Would we have it archived somewhere else? Another site? If we went that rout.
I thought more of having a local copy of all posts and images scrapped, maybe shared on demand should someone want it. Hosting it offsite is perfectly doable, but far more ambitious than initial aim.

that could an alternative/seasonal adjustment for securing the board, even though there are not many threads to archive. 4 threads per hour would give use us enough time to save them, except the bumplocked ones.

>board vols can easily wipe entire board clean, and those 4 men are 3 that aren't me so I may never know whether one of them one day decides to have mass deletion urges...
it seems that you have in mind what happened recently in November on /mlp/. It´s the worst case scenario but I wonder what could drive them to do that to a board like this. However, this board has stayed in the top 10 constantly so I kind of suspect that /pone/ could fall as an easy target in comparison to last year.

>if you ever decide on which version of the answer you want, you know who to call.
archive and taking care of the 3rd global rule. I am not asking for anything else.

>If I hadn't seen the activity in my random online wanderings, then it I would've likely never found this place.
well, there are always a little prize for having the bravery and curiosity to check other places. I had discovered this chan around 2017 when 8chan had to migrate over here because /8pone/ didn´t work around that time. I knew there was a board over here but until someone shilled endchan in December on /mlp/, I didn´t bother. Then I used it for a few days for posting images I wouldn´t have the proper chance nor fitting threads for them so I just posted them as if I were in an echo-chamber for myself.....the rest is history.

>if things don't look to serious I'd like ta give it a shot (and get shot when the great /pone/ /sp/ whoever else war).
ufff,that would require some heavy weaponry. Keep in mind that while they could be defendless of any attack, we are not doing much better. There have been miracles in the past that were carried out by very few people though.

>Archive?
like the 4chan/8chan´s one in case the threads arrived at page 15 and get deleted.

>whom you've run away from before may wanna claim vengeance
especially if there was effort behind the celebratory post.

>being too strong and deluded with power or too weak and not being about to make critical decisions
I can make critical decisions. What I find worrisome about being a mod is that there is no useful feedback and if you make mistakes, other anons believe that it´s censorship or anything related. Well, that and any random reply that could drive to serious business. I would never apply for it, especially in chaotic boards like /b/ where you get tense responses for doing it badly. The most plausible behavior is by no giving a fuck about what you do but people do notice it instantly.

>>3110
>the global moderation is less detached from the userbase, and would respond to such request more promptly.
much less detached when the actual owner is aware of those events from happening over here, not to mention that the subject by itself is the core of having a sane board in terms of activity and "flowing" posts in each thread.

>I thought more of having a local copy of all posts and images scrapped, maybe shared on demand should someone want it.
we could use the NMAiE general for pastebins and stuff, compiling the links, threads and all the stuff. It´s easy to copy it from any user and by just simply using CTRL+V from any Word´s user, you recover it.

There are several routes/solutions for that, most of them really effective and instantaneous.

Not that question, but okay also, following the law to the letter, 3rd global rule allows flooding, as long as it isn't of advertisement nature

Snatching the GET? Not quite. Just mostly luck, probably. Dealing with fallout, if any, maybe. But how mad and vengeful can one be over 1 stolen post of round digits? (famous Internet last words)

Now I kind of see why 4chan mods went quieter and quieter as time went on, from plenty of interactions and public bans, to behind-the-scenes invisible moderation. Though it certainly did create a positive-feedback loop, which didn't help their case any.

the fanbase has always hung out on that side and it doesn´t surprise me at all that the pessimism inhabits in the majority of the fans, especially when the show is taken way too seriously or wasn´t supposed to reach this far.

I am one of those that is either an introvert as fuck and doesn´t say much but short answers or extend the conversation to limits it wasn´t intended to achieve. Basically, what I tried is sum up in building something out of nothing until something actually important to talk about happens.

well, it could a possible explanation about what happened over there as well. However, I think Hiro taking over the site makes you wonder if that´s the only reason for them to stay silent.

>if I were the owner of small chan, I'd also poke around any boards that had a sign of activity, at least once in a while.
if I had too much time, yeah I would do that. However, I am one of those that has a bigger preference for the ride than the chan. The chan state is somewhat secondary even though one has to keep track of what´s happening in general.

>saving a local copy of all threads (just text) is very simple, really trivial even. Just did that today, in fact (the attached zip file)
it´s pretty indeed. In fact I saved the bumplocked thread as well because that´s the only one that could fall off easily if any raid happened.

The wording clearly implies the context under which the action is forbidden, all other contexts are not.

The mods switched into backseat moderation before moot left, but that may well be another factor contributing to the fact even more.

Well speaking from the hypothetical perspective of the owner, what's going on on the website you own would rather be of major importance. There may be no 'ride' for the owner, or several 'rides' picked up over from communities residing on his chan.

Eh, I'd rather not. Besides, there's always thread IDs (I'd rather not as well). So far my biggest aid in telling You apart is posting time. But I'm by no means saying that You must stick to regular or unique, non-overlapping posting times, no, far from it.
I'm also not allergic to namefags and tripfags per se (although I went on with the rising tide of the anti-name/trip of recent years). Funnily though, despite that I've still refrained from using a tripcode or role signature in places where it was actually appropriate >implying me contributing
I guess I have some sort of fetish for the anonymity of the chans ethos.

>(and they use secure tripfags by the way for each thread, the anti chan principle applied over there)
Or even custom made tripcodes (though I think it's just staff)
The plus (maybe not for them) side is that they're not portable.

>not even lurking hard can save you of confusion.
As it should be, in principle. Death of the author, yadda yadda.

>Though I wasn't their for those early chaotic threads on /b/. I always heard their was a chaotic group of tripfags
You could stil see occasional pony thread popping up on /b/ as far as 2014/2015. They probably pop every now and then nowadays too, but I visited /b/ maybe twice/thrice a year back then, and do it even less now. Also there's "Official pony thread" as a legacy of old /b/reads on /trash/, though I never visited them, spare for one or two singular times. You can check them if you're curious.
Anyway, if those threads are anything like the old /b/ threads of 2011, them man was it bad.
Again, I'm not that allergic to trips per se, but seeing every post with tripcode and 5-10 people avatarfagging tbh avatarfagging tips me off more than tripfaggotry with the same set of images over and over was rather cringy experience tbh... I get the same feeling when I visit ponychan once in a while.

>tripfags used to be more common on /mlp/ as well...
May be well true, though I haven't noticed. But the general sentiment against using tripcodes rose in force over recent years, so many decided to drop them.
I think that the board that still has most friendly attitude towards trippers is /sp/ (on 4chan at least), and in a funny way of fate, on the other end of that spectrum, from what I've heard, would lie a board no other than /a/.

the ride is the same just that I wasn´t that comfortable as I would have imagined, not to mention that endchan has a little bit more moderation that I personally like in comparison to no rules. That site is certainly a bit underdeveloped for my taste so I preferred continuing over here despite the mess with the images in spring.

erm, I dont´t have a huge gallery to begin with. I will try to rotate and add new images but I have to reuse them sometimes. Not in the levels as MLPG does every time but I am yet in the process to post different stuff.

Let's look at both sides of this coin, shall we? This board is very small. I know my post is either going to be addressed to you or L23. Stop right there. Their is times were I have to address ya or him, so I have to refer to y'all as something, even if it's a causal BO or wordy nickname "anon" nickname. As it has been said, there is no crowd to hide behind.

Then there is the fact that the canvas of much of the OC that has already been posted here often draws to various degrees from the personal realm. The personal has been been discussed already here; though it is not the only topic, it has come up. There has been some discussion on life details and such being brought up. These two points is where the the temptation to tripfag/namefag arises, as there is a identity with each poster even you and personal has already been breached. Yet...


Notice. I have never taken a name here even in my stories?. Bridgefag is a placeholder given to me simply by L23 to call me something when I need to be addressed (such as referring to the fics I wrote). There has been a reluctance on my part to take one. I have always been more of a lurker who doesn't like attention even if my exposure to smaller sites and different dynamics makes me more liberal on expression on the chan front. I detest certain social media dynamics quite heavily, though I see this place as more laid back and I can think of plenty of things that I am open to here but wouldn't do on a more proper chan, for experimenting sake anyway. I understand the reluctance to namefag, I have it even here. Though I am open to it as it could make sense from a utilitarian standpoint here but if reminds you of the dynamics of social media and attention whoring I can relate.

>same set of images over and over was rather cringy experience tbh... I get the same feeling when I visit ponychan once in a while.
Ponychan, oh what can I say about that site? I don't know how to explain it but I've always felt very uncomfortable there, but there are aspects of it that are hard to articulate for me. I've tried to ponder upon it in the times I've visited there. Is it the tripfaging and social aspect? Maybe to an extent but not to itself. Because there are other places that have way more of that dynamic yet I don't really care at all. Is it the bad taste from the old moderation? Perhaps that plays a part, even with the new administration I had one incident where I felt a little weird about the logic of, but it isn't something I could pin to just that. It feels like something else is missing to describe it. There is something about the community dynamic of it and it's related websites (including ponyville.us) that gives me pause, reluctance, and distaste, even with places that have ostensibly similar practices not bugging me much.

Maybe it's somehow a warning on what not to do with a chan? I remember some people freaking out on stuff that they found on web archive that they thought was cringe and sometimes worse info from that site. which wouldn't be the case for a more anon cautious chan (though it isn't the namefaging as much as tieing into other social media and connecting it there). And the site's existential crisis between how much it should police everyone.

Yeah, I think I probably overall agree with ya on the whole on tripfag when I sit and think about it, even if I'm more open. With significant caveats towards some lines that have already been crossed a bit and experimentation. Ponychan is a place that makes me give that same Twilight face and I wouldn't want to have that same "icky" feeling.

Indeed. I think from a pruely utilitarian perspective it makes since, but when I thought about ponychan I remembered that little freakout about stuff on the achieve. I've always had reluctance for namefaging tough I will likely take one with my major story project anyway.

>especially when there are conspirators in /pol/ that claim that social media bosses/google/CEO are trying to kill anonymity. That could explain why there is a big rejection these days. (and let´s not enter in the political topic again but that truly is a shitshow)

>tbh avatarfagging tips me off more than tripfaggotry
Nope. Avatarfagging doesn't bug me one bit. Especially, when one is running low on images. my pet peeve is thread IDs, because everything else is a choice, thread IDs are forced on you I have actually considered doing it in the event of all of us live posting together just to help in the chaos.

Minor clarification. I didn't think we'd have that type of feel even if we did namefag but I was saying this in the spirit of I can relate to that feel.

Certainly. I will stick around unless it sucks really bad because I'll curious what they do with the characters. Wizzard unicorn fanservice Luna and Celestia could be an intrsting prospect ya'know? They can't go back to the previous level of mindless little girl crap and if they go mess up in a different way their still could be interesting elements involved. Heck, even if it does suck to the point I can't stand watching it I'll stick around to monitor the fandom and keep track anyway

Distrust of the mods or is there other rules or incidents that I'm not aware about besides that 3rd rule?

That site is certainly a bit underdeveloped for my taste so I preferred continuing over here despite the mess with the images in spring.
Yeah. As it stands right now at least. All other chans that have been checking around either are in a worse state (nextchan do to the beta state still may tried to reclaim the bunker moderation soon ), died (old polish 8chan clone that allowed other boards) or are way more unstable 64chan (died... twice than came back) and 314chan (has died and came back mutiple times. Are considering a comeback again after they made that whole dramatic annocement and went offline earlier this year). or just suck all around (mewch which I thick is dead or something). 8chan of course is completely out of the question as we'd have to be hidden least /pone/ would declare nuclear war and it wouldn't be fun just to hide and not raise the /pone/ banner. I'm still looking around though.

Really doubtful on that one. Although that's nothing new that I haven't said before.

Haven't paid that much of attention really, so didn't notice anything. Note that there was (or wasn't, and Hiro just admined from the shadows, we don't know) also around a year of interregnum before Hiro took over.

>the mess with the images in spring
tfw wanted to restore them all, but managed to pull only 216 from desu just days before it stopped serving images (that's all desu had out of those missing here). I had only 12 on my disk, and DB doesn't allow searching by md5, so I'd have to find other ways to search them. Those things disheartened me a little, so the project fell kinda flat. Only have 228/958 missing collected.

It's not the reusal of the same images alone that ticks me off (although that is surely an aggravating factor), it's the "X is my waifu, so that means every image I post must feature her, preferably in the focus" and the actual avatar posting mindsets that somehow gets me. And you need not even repeat images for that. But it's all defined in terms of "I know when I see it" style judgement, not some objective and clear requirements one has to fulfil to fit the bill. It has to have that particular "feel" to it, if you know what I mean.

>especially when there are conspirators in /pol/ that claim that social media bosses/google/CEO are trying to kill anonymity
I don't know how much of that is a conspiracy, really. Going rhetorical, the less anonymity, the easier control. Yeah, let's not delve into that.
>That could explain why there is a big rejection these days
I like to think actually though about that only at the time of writing this post, but it makes for nice expression in writing that it's actually contrarianism spirit of chans at play with the rising tide of all-connected social media and online presence all around.

Ideally there shouldn't be any. Or something. I don't really know anymore. But we're all only human, after all.

Actually, damn You. Damn You both for making me think about conceptualising the ideal so much. From the romantic (as in, relating to romanticism ideals, not the love connotation) aloof and vague idea perfect in every shape and form, diluted to mere ...something with lot of holes and unanswered questions. I don't exactly know.
It's exactly like the "never meet your heroes" says.

>Ponychan, oh what can I say about that site? I don't know how to explain it but I've always felt very uncomfortable there, but there are aspects of it that are hard to articulate for me
To clarify a bit what I said before, Ponychan is to me like any other website, so to say. There are some perfectly fine threads etc. just that some parts of the website/threads invoke this feeling.

>It feels like something else is missing to describe it.
Don't worry about it. I understand how it is, I get that a lot. Sometimes something just is, in and of itself.

THAT PIC IS GOING FULL PSYCHODELIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH

>I know my post is either going to be addressed to you or L23.
addressed to the spanish faggot who cannot stop praising that gospel band.....reporting in.

>there is no crowd to hide behind.
that´s true but I like to have a philosophy that if someone reads this, they get something out of it with that anonymity virtuosity outside.

>These two points is where the the temptation to tripfag/namefag arises, as there is a identity with each poster even you and personal has already been breached
yes, it almost feels like the poster behind is playing a character. Now, watch out! Most fags repeat the avatarfagging to be attention whores of the thread and derail it for trolling or whatever. I personally have explained a lot and I don´t have the need to use that technique not to mention that there are better ways to express the personal thoughts you have behind.

>Bridgefag is a placeholder given to me simply by L23 to call me something when I need to be addressed (such as referring to the fics I wrote). There has been a reluctance on my part to take one. I have always been more of a lurker who doesn't like attention even if my exposure to smaller sites and different dynamics makes me more liberal on expression on the chan front.
yeah, that´s true. Staying out there as a background lurker holds the magic of privacity and if it gets broken, well, everyone else is watching you. In fact, that Bridgefag address is something that I apply to differentiate to what I guess I am referring to. Not to mention that another one can replace you and shitpost the Dolores memes more than you and lose that name for someone else.

I can hold a name but not because of social media, but because I think I can deal with exposing myself in the front. I have found a technique to deal with it over time.
>though I see this place as more laid back and I can think of plenty of things that I am open to here but wouldn't do on a more proper chan, for experimenting sake anyway.
that entirely relies on the posters who participate in the thread. I am not saying that this board will get out of its own dramas but yeah, in comparison, it´s way less hostile and more like discussing behind the cameras. Like /mlp/ conveys an attitude to the rest but here, it´s simply another side....for now. Experimenting and using this place for alternative ways is what I consider key to move forward to some place that...well, I don´t know, use content and discuss it where others don´t.

>I am open to it as it could make sense from a utilitarian standpoint here but if reminds you of the dynamics of social media and attention whoring I can relate.
I can certainly see when one namefags himself for the sake of attention whoring. But do you know a way to make it less relevant? By making the thread boring even if there are baits thrown around. Either that or taking its attention whoring to the absurd level by exposing him beyond the intended levels to the point he is too involved into the thread to escape and leave without saying more things after it.

One would say that hide and report is the solution but this is not /mlp/, so there have to be other ways to deal with that case.

>There is something about the community dynamic of it and it's related websites (including ponyville.us) that gives me pause, reluctance, and distaste, even with places that have ostensibly similar practices not bugging me much.
then it´s something that only you sense with it and that´s fine. I personally haven´t had any attachment to it save for a few threads about the episodes around 2015 early 2016. But for the most part, I feel indifference about that site despite having tripfags all around their threads.

>it's somehow a warning on what not to do with a chan?
probably but I am telling that it cannot be the only one that throws the principles to the trash.

>they thought was cringe and sometimes worse info from that site. which wouldn't be the case for a more anon cautious chan (though it isn't the namefaging as much as tieing into other social media and connecting it there). And the site's existential crisis between how much it should police everyone.
ugh, throwing policies to anyone just to keep the identity is complicated and I personally wouldn´t know how to deal with that. The brony term has always carried the cringe tag by itself and if it´s because of NSFW stuff,
it impresses me less.

>Ponychan is a place that makes me give that same Twilight face and I wouldn't want to have that same "icky" feeling.
alright. That´s fine. At least, it serves as a reference and one can point it out to see how the results would go by applying the formula. Checking what others did for future directions is a wise idea to know what to do...or at least, what it shouldn´t be done (even though the verb should implies subjectivity).

>>3174

yeah, even if that brought a scary feeling, one has to face with the past events and what others did with the same tools.

well, you already can use the one you have or get different ones for each fic. That´s up to you.


>Some truth to the aversion but such paranoia often takes out hurts even old traditions. Let's not enter into the political area right now thhough...
yeah, sadly it twists and distorts things that were considered as nice things. Don´t worry about the political discussion, you had September and November for that. It´s overexplained and it ends up with the same stuff with a different cover. Call me for another month for that or for the next part of my fic. But not now.

>>3175
>I didn't think we'd have that type of feel even if we did namefag but I was saying this in the spirit of I can relate to that feel.
it truly depends on the faggots that you are discussing with more than anything else.

And even get a laugh...

this is why I mention that gen 5 can easily become the 2nd best gen...mostly because they have opened Pandora´s box with this gen. A point of no return for them. And even if they fuck it up, someone will decide gen 6.

>if it does suck to the point I can't stand watching it I'll stick around to monitor the fandom and keep track anyway
be sure that gen 4 fans won´t leave its old content if the new one sucks. For the golden days, there is still a lot to milk, remember and appreciate in retrospective.

>it's been a bit bumby hasn't it?
yeah even though I feel like this year is having a nostalgic phase for the fanbase because time is running out and the dreams that every fan had with this franchise...are going away and write the last canon words. There´s not much left to do but wait until the bittersweet end.

>is there other rules or incidents that I'm not aware about besides that 3rd rule?
well, more than anything it was about dealing with myself in a dead board. I have already mentioned my problems with it.

>As it stands right now at least. All other chans that have been checking around either are in a worse state,died or are way more unstable, or just suck all around (mewch which I thick is dead or something).
goddamn. Well, quality has to better than quantity. I, for sure can compare in comparison to those imageboards. I already had a impression that there were not better alternatives around there so, same old same works despite the image mess.

>8chan of course is completely out of the question as we'd have to be hidden least /pone/ would declare nuclear war and it wouldn't be fun just to hide and not raise the /pone/ banner.
the funny thing is that THIS board was the project of 8chan at one period and they forgot about it. The hidden /pone/ doesn´t have any place on 8chan.....because the seat was already created.

not a bad speculation actually. In fact, I wonder if some boards didn´t care that much about having a name during the late 00s or even in the era of Myspace.

For the most part, 4chan has been carried by /pol/ more than /b/ these days. So that´s why I imply that rejection due to political paranoia rather than social motifs. Your point makes sense even though I see it as contributing factor more than the main reason.

Life by itself....is a problem. The feelings invoked may have come on purpose or not. The posts before these ones also carried conceptual themes and not easy ones to discuss. This is what happens when someone wants to decide the next direction when no one actually knows but only discussing where to go by checking mistakes form the past. And even then, the steps are being made even if someone is blind to the path he is taking.
>It's exactly like the "never meet your heroes" says.
I have no heroes to admire. I am trying to find someone close to that but after discovering how the world works, heroes don´t wear a cape nor incite to claim themselves as one. The hero is what you consider down to your preferences and subjective judgements more than anything else.
I have met people that one may consider ideal but those are just simply nothing outlandish. They may look fairly right in front of the cameras but behind the scenes and commercial speeches, do they hold those values all the time?

I don´t think so.

it´s more about a personal mindset for not regretting in the long run what I am shitposting. One always wonder if someone is spying us from behind and become too paranoid. However, if a faggot reads this and wants to know about something, they are doomed to learn something new. And mostly everybody stays in the comfort zone by learning almost nothing, so I highly doubt they care.

>Doesn't always work. I have a theory that it mostly depends on the mentality (winner/loser) of the user in question.
of course,everything is relative when facing a problem. Life is not a formula, neither is dealing with anonymous people you don´t know nor are consistent at what they say all the time. It´s just a method that could serve at certain times but that´s it. Like you said with your compression method, nothing is the panacea.

>on 4chan, in general.
ah. Well, I cannot speak about the entire site because I don´t lurk around the site that much save /mlp/, /mu/ and /v/. I sometimes lurk /co/ for a thread or two but for the most part, I barely visit any other boards with a certain frequency. They have stayed mostly the same I guess? I am definitely not the biggest expert of the site honestly and what boards have changed all that much or not.I would need to lurk constantly and see the changes and how threads get deleted.

>but will need to look more into automated posting first.
alright

>Based, same.
I will say however, that a couple of faggots considered me once a Rarifag during mid 2017 because I had its general as one of my central threads to visit. Although that could be said for Twilight´s, Star Light´s and Fluttershy´s.

So basically, despite having my attachment to certain characters, like I have made with Celestia in this board for example, I have never reached to that zone where some faggots cannot escape.

>From what I've heard, /a/ cared. A lot.
wow, I didn´t know that. Maybe they rejected circlejerkers of certain animes. I could imagine /a/ getting a contrarian behavior because of namefags that would keep mentioning Naruto or I don´t know, DBZ.

>Not sold on the idol meme either. Double based. Same.
>Well that's more les the definition of a hero, yes.
the ideal heroes are specialized at one or two things. Ad for the rest, they cannot physically hold up to those standards for different matters. there are idols that did absolutely awful things yet they are admired and follow their actions.
Up to one´s head I guess but yeah, like I had said, it´s down to those preference on does have at a certain time.

>Is it really that bad as everyone makes it sound?I don't think so.
nope. Not everyone has those cases. I am just talking in extreme cases where its fans follow it too blindly.
I could put the example of a few "heroes" that not only shine at their musicianship (I mostly know about musicians) but also are great at what they think in their lives. But then, you wouldn´t put the hero tag but more as a normal person that had its problems and hits.

Hell, MLP does this all the time. Not only the supposed gods are good at what they do, but they also show their charm and flaws in their daily lives and actions. Part of the reason why I love Horse Play or slice of life stories around the princesses. Seen as heroes or outlandish figures yet the myths around them are not actually spectacular.

you are nor first nor the last fag to have those thoughts because of passive replies. I have to give myself a few breaks as well between shitposts of a day or two. As long as you make the post clear to what you want to say and who you are talking to, the rest doesn´t matter that much.

they have a 30 PPH rhythm fortunately. However, /endpone/ is not ready to stand on its own without a backup or main sites for the general brony activity. I wouldn´t like seeing 8/pone/ dying and having to surivive for ourselves alone in the alt chans territory.

But as one of my idols would say:

>But if you want wasted, loaded, permanently folded.

and that´s what I would say as well if someone thought to have the /end/ as his hope to survive in terms of MLP content.

Getting all philosophical, nothing ever stays static and unchanged. So they've changed. In reality, I don't know either. In truthfulness, so many things have changed, yet so many have stayed the same.

There is nothing wrong with having favourite pony/ponies.

I thik we must live in different universes, or different timelines (2015 /pone/), because 30 Post Per Hour would be a contemporary /pone/'s wet dream. If they get 30 posts in a day, boy that's a lot by today standards. They mostly oscillate around 10-15 posts per day.
It doesn't surprise me one bit that they died, considering that the whole foundation of their identity was based around being "not /mlp/" and hating thereof.

I won´t deny that but I cannot enter into specific things. Just more SJW topics around I guess.

that´s what you can extract out of 4chan. It feels the same, it still has the same design (save the ads) yet the memes used for that year or appealing threads and tastes may have changed. Some stay but certain things collide to what you would have expected at a certain time. /mlp/ has changed but mostly about the show rather than the 4chan spirit. They are less hostile about the events of 2013 but that mentality was achieved in an inner timeline.

>There is nothing wrong with having favourite pony/ponies.
Absolutely

>I can't help You on that one.
no expert on /a/ but they usually meme a lot about Naruto and their fans. I implied a reason why names could offend them.

>if they could they wouldn't be called heroes but mary sues
that´s what I mostly get about the cinema these days. Superheroes usually bore me a lot, especially in the marketing and imagery department. Their backstories might be alright and relatable to an extent though.

>"normal people" if those exist can be heroes too, yes.
well, ordinary people. Normal is a word that origins from subjectivity.

Trollestia did it again. Still, it offered a closer dynamic than the fans would have expected from her (mostly because of her godly part)

>30 Post Per Hour would be a contemporary /pone/'s wet dream. If they get 30 posts in a day, boy that's a lot by today standards
lel, I was mistaken (and awfully blind). The 30 mark was the Active ISPs in that board, not the PPH. That would imply reaching a speed like /a/ does over there.
What was I thinking?


>the whole foundation of their identity was based around being "not /mlp/" and hating thereof.
I mean, there are counterculture movements that prevail over time but a board that offers nothing different but a remorseful feeling about their own fathers...

it might not be a good idea.Wrath may have caused technical advancements (for war) but as a counterculture board, they wouldn´t survive for too long without giving it a different identity.

More dead than Ponychan (funnily enough, /mlp/ memes a lot about Ponychan being dead but I think that the meme was misplaced in the end).
