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)

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.

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. -Change images to files >Thread watcher improvements -toggleable watch icon/watched threads (?) -sort by last replied (?)

Regarding Generation 1-3 & Misc. Anonymous 07/13/2024 (Sat) 07:29:32 No. 612 [Reply]
Howdy, as the subject says, I'm just wondering if there'll be any other misc boards for other mare-related content and/or generation 1-2? Unless it is fine to post that type of content in >>>/fim/ Kindest regards, and a happy weekend to you.
>>612 I'm not planning on adding other boards currently. Regarding previous gens, it's not banned, it's just not strictly on topic.

Uncontrollable autism Anonymous 02/15/2022 (Tue) 20:08:20 Id:9549c6 No. 352 [Reply] [Last]
Wondering how this board would handle this kind of behavior of just unloading a stream of consciousness that nobody gives a shit about. For an example of what I'm talking about maybe some of you are familiar with a certain autistic retard known as Nigel on /mlpol/. Some unholy mixture of brit and low-functioning autism that thinks everyone must know what he's thinking at all time, never improves his behavior and gaslights with dismissive shit like how people ripping into him are just "haters" It's been said that his behavior has been well documented and even if he didn't use a flag ANY post by him is almost immediately recognized as Nigel because he is that much of an insufferable faggot. To be blunt, the vast majority of his posts are form of littering much a nigger dumping trash out the window on the street, but the mod team of /mlpol/ has decided to do nothing about him aside from small warnings and minor deletion of posts, despite this kind of pollution going on for years and many many complaints, no long term bans happen and no one gets time to breathe because he might use the entire site as a poo shits on the street, instead of where it belongs in the toilet. Now why am I bringing this up? /mlpol/ has a writingimprovement thread much like /mlp/ had a drawingimprovement thread but it's very obvious that everyone is incredibly put off by this autism and the quality of the thread, hell any thread he joins tanks since he made a stake in it. Just going by numbers here he makes up ONE THIRD of the posts in a 600post thread currently up with his dynamic IP and another third of the thread is probably just talking about how much of a faggot he is. Now to the point. While reading this dipshit's posts for years spew offtopic garbage like a sewage pipe on steroids nhnb didn't exist, but now that it does it made me think maybe people might have a better time away from it posting a writefag improvement thread on nhnb. However before I suggest people make the move I want to know what nhnb's stance would be. Would you let him shit up threads when he can't be contained only curtailed? https://mlpol.net/mlpol/299458 To get a glimpse, this is the writefag improvement thread and below are the IDs he used in the thread. Here's just a couple of his most recent posts but they generally all read like this, pushing what is 'on topic' to the point of breaking in half. --------- 35 f4e1903 1 15aea3f 1 fa03a49 6 184c306

>>370 >Right now the thread on /mlppol/ is dead due to everyone vacating the autism fuming up the place, no surprise. This is actually kind of a mischaracterization. Nigel still posts a lot of his autistic garbage in that thread and he's still annoying, but the thread itself is active. It's probably one of the more active threads on /mlpol/ at this point.
>>474 It's too soon to tell. But it seems like he has finally fucked off. Very proud of my role btw.
>>474 How about a little update then? Shit's fucking deserted. There's a grand total of two posters in the writefag thread. A sizable portion of that thread is just OP and Nigel going back and forth with unreadable walls of text. Hope it dies off soon.

Advertising a server. Anonymous 08/06/2023 (Sun) 02:51:35 Id:2ac105 No. 574 [Reply] [Last]
I want to advertise /mlp/'s gmod server here to see if there's anyone interested on it. I'm not sure if this is permitted in the rules so I apologize if I'm breaking any.

>>581 Sounds good, I'd even help if I can. I mentioned /mlp/ because since this is my first time using this site I thought that it didn't have too many users and I saw people talk about bringing anons from /mlp/ to make this site more active, but it's nice to see that it could be done only with NHNB users. And of course people would have to discuss what would be better (for example some anons prefer a different version than the one you want to use, mods, etc)
>>583 I'd host anything from the alpha vesions to 1.6.2 Where I draw the line is that they changed flower placement so that it's not in the center of the block and made roses into poppies. They also gimped the oceans and caves in that version which makes the world less fun to explore. If we did 1.6.2 it would have the advantage that there are horses for one thing. There would also be more options for technical builds with hoppers, droppers, comparators, and daylight sensors. If we did 1.2.1 we would get a unique world generation that is my personal favorite where the forests look different than any other version because of a bug. I also know a lot of fun glitches for that version like breaking bedrock, duplicating sand and using it to make belt machines which opens up redstone in interesting ways, and cosetically altering blocks to get otherwise unatainable varients. If we did Beta 1.7 we could potentially move the spawn point to the far lands, although the gimick of those wears off after a while and they are a very unwelcoming place.
>>586 Sounds good, I'd suggest to use Nostalgic Tweaks if people don't mid mods. It's a mod that brings a lot of mechanics from old minecraft releases (beta, alpha and even some post release mechanics). I'd also put it with other mods for old world generation or even mods like Mine Little Pony, but that sounds good too.
