  1. Serious Discussion?

    There's not really a 'serious discussion' category, as it hasn't really been needed yet. I can move this thread to Pony Free Posts since it's not really pony-related and is more about the fandom itself. If you'd rather create a new thread there, be my guest, either one works. Please keep the discussion civil, regardless of where you choose to have this conversation.
  2. Bug Reporting

    Looking into this, thanks for the heads up. We had some security upgrades done which may be causing some weirdness.
  3. Staff Application Guidelines

    Added section to application template for timezone. Due to current needs, this info is very important.
  4. An Idea To Stop The Spambots

    These are all excellent ideas, but the forum software severely limits my options for stuff like this. Unless it's built-in or someone's coded a module for it, adding a new feature is extremely difficult.
  5. An Idea To Stop The Spambots

    We sometimes get accounts that spam threads/posts, usually in Chinese or some other language. They're dealt with pretty swiftly, but they are quite the nuisance.
  6. Patron Information?

    https://www.patreon.com/EquestriaDaily Essentially, you pay EQD a certain amount per month in exchange for various rewards, which are listed on the sidebar.
  7. Update Site Rules for 21st Century

    If it breaks the rules, it will get removed.
  8. Discord Widget

    It was broken, but now it has returned! On the sidebar on the main forum index you can click the "Connect" button to easily and quickly join the discord. Please report any issues, concerns, comments, etc. with this feature as they arise.
  9. Update Site Rules for 21st Century

    Offensive language filters can be done but bypassing it is on a usergroup basis. Which means in order to make it optional myself or another staff member would have to manually add users to a special group that can post such things, and that is not a rabbit hole I'm willing to dive into. I have no control over what the Ignore feature hides from you, sadly. If I'm able to find a solution to this, I would of course be willing to implement your suggestion.
  10. Discord Widget

    We had one at one point but it stopped working. I'll look into bringing it back.
  11. Update Site Rules for 21st Century

    I'm not implementing a specific rule against necroposting, since it's such a minor thing and we can easily handle it on an as-needed basis. COPPA is something I'll need to look further into.
  12. An Idea To Stop The Spambots

    There's no way to do that, unfortunately. If you really wanted to, you could send a PM to a staff member with the suspicious profiles. Otherwise, continue flagging their posts when they do become active.
  13. (Hypothetical) Deleting an account?

    Users cannot delete their own accounts, only admins have that capability.
  14. About the chinese spammers here.

    We've had Captcha turned on since the beginning. Turning on e-mail validation was an additional step to try to curb the sheer number of them. There's only so much I can do with the tools I have.
