Your Waifu Anonymous 12/18/2021 (Sat) 00:41:25 No. 5972 [Reply]
Who is your waifu? Why is she your waifu? How long have you known your waifu? Your waifu is now standing in front of you and appears scared with apprehension. How do you respond?

>>5972 Celestia She seems like a nice mare. She's also very pretty. Also, The Exchange. I've known her for longer than she's been my waifu. Took me longer than it should have to find this mare. Offer up a hug? How could you not when she looks like pic rel?
>>5972 Rainbow Dash. I've known her since 2014 and fell in love with her almost at first sight. She's my waifu because of her amazing design/look, her cute raspy voice, and her beautiful athletic prowess and the way she always stays loyal to those she believes in and her friends. She appears tough and sometimes without emotion on the outside, but once you get to know her she can be sweet and lovey-dovey to those she trusts the most. If she approached me with apprehension I would probably asked her what's wrong and try to comfort her in any way I could. Perhaps offer her something to eat/drink and listen to what she has to say.

>>5787 Damn so high? If it was that high for me I could not post there either I only filter on OP image and/or if there is something retarded in the preview text And this approach has not changed but the number of filtered threads has increased incrementally
>>5789 You better have a good hobby to spend your time on then. >>5799 I doubt you're the guy I replied to but still. Do you browse or care about all (or most of) the threads shown on your catalog or not? I hide stuff that I'm never going to open and never going to reply to. It's actually mostly generals, so I still manage to catch those spontaneous threads that sometimes turn into something decent, which is the only downside I can imagine to hiding so much stuff. >If it was that high for me I could not post there either Why not?
>>5802 No I don't browse the majority of the threads in the catalog. I pretty much nuke human and g5 pony life etc on sight and thats the number it comes out as. I try to catch those spontaneous threads like you said, but I don't mind if they end up sticking around like snowponies.
>>5806 I only hide G5 and human as well, the number is usually 20-30 on good days, so I guess I still find worthwhile posts more often than not.

>>5433 I'm going to make it simple for you: generals are threads that are made with the idea that a new thread will be created when the current one is archived. At a basic level, it's just that. It is not so much a topic, because every thread has a topic, be a question, a point of discussion, a joke, or even one that is proposed as random things. Obviously, a general is not a bad thing, that just depends on whether your brain relates it to something bad because in circles that you don't like you hear the word "general" frequently. Actually, this place is much more comfortable for generals, because it's much quieter and with people much more focused on mlp related things and who like "comfy" things. I also don't understand what OP wants exactly, does he want more meme threads that aren't taken seriously? In a place where there isn't much traffic, it doesn't make much sense to have meme threads with few or no responses for weeks, and if you want that funny feedback, literally /mlp/ is the best place because most of the people are there just for meme. Does OP feel uncomfortable that things feel more "serious" and "organized" and therefore less spontaneous than in the old days? Understandable from a nostalgic point of view but personally I don't see the bad side. I think that as long as you talk about what you are supposed to talk about in a certain thread, any "method" is good. Do you want a place to feel "less /mlp/"? Literally don't create conversation topics related to organizational issues and linked to tastes. The more you formalize the idea that "there are problems" around how a board should be organized and act, the more you normalize the fact that things are wrong, and you probably create divisions that didn't even exist in the first place. It's like implementing sex education for children to combat teenage pregnancy or things like that. Sure, in times like this it's surely better than nothing, but it's undeniable that you normalize that children and adolescents are more connected to sex, you are not saying "concentrate on things of their age and don't live thinking about sex, close your legs", you're saying "think about sex all you want 24/7, just don't do it the wrong way." It is not something of "let's not discuss anything", think of it this way: When someone creates a thread that raises a discussion point (whatever it's) and another click on it because the first thing that comes to his mind isn't: "oh, surely there will be the guy who thinks that x is total garbage, the autistic who always puts x topic in every discussion, the doomer who says he hates this place and it's posters but never leaves, the one who doesn't stop treat others as if they were secret spies created to annoy him, all this personalities that you saw in just the last week in other discussion threads". Let's just enjoy ponies and this beautiful show. The old days were good because we all had this mindset and were happy with little. Sorry for the blog, and my shitty english.

Will anyone from /fim/ be there? It is a horrible con with anthro bird mascots, but I will be there to see some rewatch stream friends. I think the /mlp/ secret santa will have something too. Will anyone want to come and watch some episodes and hang out? December 17-19, Columbus OH

>>5809 Took me a minute to get that reference.
I wish I could go, but I've already got plans for those dates, hopefully next year.

Been seeing a bunch of weather related pony pics today, not sure why but I've been quite enjoying them. These rainy day pics always bring about a cozy feeling. So post more pics like this and maybe some greens too if you have any about ponies dealing with a rainy day.

>>5076 I think Cloudchaser knows what she's doing. I don't know. In "Look Before You Sleep", magical lightning rods are mentioned to be a thing, so it wouldn't surprise me. But we may need to conduct experiments to find out for sure.
>>5543 Now's about the time for that. Now that Thanksgiving is over the winter will be here soon enough. Though for me it's just a whole lot of rain as it doesn't snow where I live. I bet the ponies will be ultra cozy in their homes once the cold sets in.

Mare Upscaling Thread Anonymous 08/07/2021 (Sat) 06:09:33 No. 1023 [Reply] [Last]
I was inspired by this thread to make a more permanent thread here: https://boards.4channel.org/mlp/thread/37338910 Just post any pony-related images (with what scale you'd like) that you feel are too low resolution, are blurry, or aren't high resolution enough, and I'll upscale them the best I can. Pic-related is a great example of what upscaling can do for you. If you want to upscale images yourself: >Follow these tutorials https://upscale.wiki/wiki/ESRGAN_Installation_Guide_for_Windows https://youtu.be/w4Hb7tyDsWE >Install Cupscale (optional, but recommended) https://github.com/n00mkrad/cupscale >Download models (Gigapixel can be found on public trackers) https://upscale.wiki/wiki/Model_Database Also, if you have a 2xxx or 3xxx Nvidia GPU, you should enable FP16 in Cupscale's settings to make it upscale faster: https://u.smutty.horse/mcmeqpulbgz.png

I wanted to post an interesting little upscale I've done today. Pic-related is very pixelated, and the SuperPony models couldn't handle it very well. Until I used "4x_scalenx_90k." It smoothed everything out quite well. https://u.smutty.horse/meemwvdblba.png Scalenx -> SuperPony (new): https://u.smutty.horse/meemwwgaykp.png

>>5320 Very nice. This post both reminded me that upscaling is a thing, and that newer, better models more suited for pony have been made. I think the last time I had upscaled anything was like a year and a half ago. I updated to the latest version of cupscale, grabbed some new models, and gave it a quick test with what I think are great results. Take this Chrysalis pic for example. It was made by one of ((those)) artists who don't release their full artworks, instead hiding them behind multiple layers of annoyance. In this case, the annoyance in question is DeviantArt. The thing about DeviantArt, and what this artist does, is that you can set it so that people cannot view or download the original file. Instead, the site serves you a copy of the original that has been scaled down and had the quality reduced by 25%, introducing artifacts and pixelization. Back in the old days you used to be able to browse the page source to bypass this, allowing you to grab the original file, but apparently this either doesn't work anymore or I'm too stupid to figure it out. What I did manage to figure out, however, was to get the downscaled image, but at 100% quality. So I took that, scaled it up with SuperPony 4x V2, then manually scaled the image back down to the artists original dimensions of 3508x2480. While I was at it, I gave the image a little edit. You can see in the original that Chrysalis has a bit of a frown at the corner of her mouth. I don't like that, it makes her look unhappy with the situation. A slight adjustment gave her a more neutral expression, hinting at a smile. Changes the whole feeling of the image in my opinion.
>>5345 Upscale came out looking pretty good. Your edit, while subtle, I think is very effective. Nicely done.
>>5320 Looks great! >>5345 Oh wow, that's really nice!
>>5345 It's pretty amazing how well the SuperPony models do with fan art. We have more tools to deal with bad decisions from artists or just low-resolution fan art in general.
