>>464 Maybe he means Megan Williams. A forty-something Megan in G4 World would be a blast, especially as she tries to discover why Applejack has forgotten all about her.

General to do list mys_elf Board owner 06/29/2021 (Tue) 19:33:43 Id:965149 No. 5 [Reply] [Last]
A list of things that I will (probably) do at some point or another. In no strict order: >Add support to Clover/possibly Kuroba I have absolutely no experience with Android development, so if (you) do it would be nice if you let me know in thread. Might have some questions for you. In general I am looking at modifying a copy of the vichan code to do this. Both vichan and Lynxchan use .json APIs, so hopefully that shouldn't be too difficult to convert. Since Lynxchan doesn't return an index.json, probably won't get the non-catalog view to work perfectly right. Main problem I foresee is with captcha as that's likely going to take a bit more to figure out. The site should only require captcha if it gets a certain number of PPH, but it is important for the app to support it. Have only just started poking around with things, so development is still early yet on this. >Improve the gallery view >Investigate the possibility of catalog mode in the overboard >Add warn/ban reason editable dropdown >Possibly integrate >>114 >(you)s on backlinks >Thread stats in page -Addon needed, IP count will be in 2.8.x at the least.

Tools and scripts mys_elf Board owner 06/29/2021 (Tue) 02:17:18 Id:2dfb77 No. 4 [Reply] [Last]
Some tools and scripts that pertain to the site. >(you) persist userscript. https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/nhnb-you-persist For when you don't like to store browser data but would like to preserve your (you)s. Not totally happy with the operation of it, but it works well enough for now. Will update at some point in the future. >Private Boards addon https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/Private-Boards An addon to require login on certain boards. >PenMod https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/PenMod The frontend for this site. Uncreative name included. >Lynxscripts https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/lynxscripts A couple of scripts contained here. archiveLimiter.py can prune the archive to a set number of threads. fileLimiter.py will prune the oldest images first to keep disk space usage within a set amount. Useful when operating on limited disk space. autoLynx.sh is a shell script to automatically set up a Lynxchan instance. Useful for setting up a testing environment.

>>408 I've pushed a fix to the repo, should work now. https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/nhnb-scraper >>409 I still haven't gotten around to testing out Channel Changer, so I can't really offer much help. I will say that it would probably be the better option if it can be made to work.

Why or why not? Have you ever been to one? Which one? (These two questions are just for fun and bear no relevancy to the application process, the important bit is the post number)

>Who's your favorite artist? That's hard. CBT is pretty great, as is n0nny and magnaluna. >Do you enjoy conventions? Why or why not? Have you ever been to one? Which one? I do because it's fun to look at cosplayers and check out the dealer rooms. I've only been to A-kon a few times and that was forever ago, right around FiM came out and earlier. Given I've more or less really recently made an effort to enter some sort of fandom, I would love to go to some /mlp/ cons and hang out with other anons. It's the usual curse of used to have the time but no money, now have the money but not enough time.

So, it turns out the latest wonderful decision by the /mlp/ moderation was to filter the word "barbienigger" in an attempt to discourage FiM fans from speaking out against EqG spammers. It's obvious that the jannies over there are furiously biased in favor of the barbiespammers, so the question is: How can this site become more active? Everything is here for a pony-only haven, but it feels like lots of ponyfags are still wary about switching sites, or don't even know this place exists.

>>446 VPN. It's what folks always used to do. Or just say fuck it. it's not like anything good has been on /mlp/ in the past eight years.
>>447 Any decent VPNs?
>>448 Decent? Fuck no. That is, not unless you speak Russian, but you could probably bypass the range bans with some of the free VPNs that they post on anarchist websites in Onionland.
>>411 You should be using barbiezigger anyway faggot.

Just a quick thought regarding the regular spam/ad bots... Since they all seem to be Chinese, wouldn't it just be practical to rangeban that region for now? I kind of doubt that we have any genuine regular Chinese visitors that would be affected at the moment, considering how obscure this place still is. Of course, that's just me assuming these are actually coming from China. For all I know it could be US based spam, or India, or somewhere in Europe or any other place.

>>433 What for?
>>434 spam
What's next, you will post actual Rule 0 to illustrate your point, you fucking moron?
>>432 >>433 Why would you want a delay if it's something to be removed? Anyway, you could probably look into https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChanAddon-AutoBan as a starting point. Be aware that this addon was designed for Lynxchan 2.0 so it may need some updating to work with newer versions.
>>438 ok thx nvm

Hello, just wanted to ask if you would please consider adding a g5 board. Thanks!
23 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>342 >>343 >People can't like both >Le reddit Are you the legit shizo threatening to kill themselves on /mlp/? There's obviously bleedover from people who like g4 and g5 in the community and /mlp/, as long as it's quality then the site is only hurting yourselves. Thus far it's been nowhere NEAR as cancerous as PL or EqG, you have some shitposters but you get that with g4 anyways like the awful Twilight prompts. G5 containment board doesn't really have much downside as long as they stay in it.
>>270 >>344 I understand where you're coming from, but the bottom line is that this site wasn't made to replace /mlp/; it's a supplement for those out there who want to exclusively enjoy G4 FiM for one reason or another, and also an emergency bunker for the worst case scenario of either Hiro feeling spunky and deleting the board, or the Glowing Ones deciding that it's time to shut down the honeypot for good. Might it be an idea to broaden out to include G5 here in the future? Possibly(though I personally wouldn't like it), but for now there is simply no legitimate reason to. We'll have to wait and see how things develop as the G5 show rolls out.
>>345 Yeah, it's a site made for a very specific purpose. Trying to pack it with features for everything is like those dweebs who make unnecessarily large servers which have too many channels that no one uses on that fagbreeding app that is banned from this site. There are three boards and a very simple premise. It should stay that way. If you don't like the premise, nobody is forcing you to be here.
>>344 >>People can't like both No.
>>270 there already is a containment board. It's called /mlp

Clarification on GR.14 Anonymous 04/07/2022 (Thu) 01:33:52 Id:6f893f No. 394 [Reply]
I was considering making a thread for a simplified pen and paper sort of game meant to be some interactive fun for anons. Make a character, join in, play a loose zap style game set in the world of FIM. Every day would count as one turn and each anon would write in their move which would get processed at a consistent time. I would add pictures to convey aspects of the world. Before creating the thread I checked the rules in case something like this was mentioned and I saw GR.14 "No roleplaying". It seemed clean cut to me at first but I think that this thread could be fun for a small board like this that does not get many posts; it would offer some consistent interactivity without getting too noisy. I figure there is a chance that the rule was not written to stop game threads of the type I described but with the intent to prevent some other sort or roleplay (like for example always roleplaying as a character when you make your posts). Even if it's a small chance it can't hurt to ask.
>>394 I always thought No RP rule is meant to stop bullshit like I'm a bad filly, bla bla bla, ask me questions Anons! not CYOA-like things or prompts.
>>394 Sounds to me like basically a CYOA, should be fine. >>395 >I always thought No RP rule is meant to stop bullshit like >I'm a bad filly, bla bla bla, ask me questions Anons! >not CYOA-like things or prompts. Pretty much.

Quick question about rule #2 Anonymous 03/19/2022 (Sat) 00:58:42 Id:46c69f No. 387 [Reply]
Is watersports considered too extreme? Personally I see watersports as OK but scat and diapers are gross; just wanted to be sure if that's agreed.
>>387 Should probably be fine, just keep in mind board rules (mainly nsfw vs sfw images depending on whether your posting on /fim/ or /clop/).
