We f’ed up and turned our back to one of the largest subcultures in 4chan’s history. This was not out of malice, but ignorance, and responding to general upset from the rest of the community when pony threads began to overwhelm their respective homes. Ponies haven’t had a real home outside of /b/ and /co/ until today.
So we’re trying to make this right, and give the ponies the home they’ve deserved from day one. I honestly have no idea what to do with this board and will be relying on you all to set the culture and help come up with its rules and provide suggestions for janitors. I think a lot of you are tripfriends, so hopefully one stands out that would make a good one.
I would ask that you try to centralize all pony related threads here in /mlp/, and direct fellow ponies from /b/, /co/ and others to this board.
Friendship sure is magic,
A few days ago it was reported by Plaster (article found here) that moot had hinted at a /pony/ board, namely to answer all the complaints being made by other 4channers about ponies being everywhere. Truth be known, ponies are everywhere on 4chan namely due to trolls, using it as an annoyance to tick other people off. The major complaint on /co/ was always about keeping our ponies to one thread, and truthfully, we did. I use to monitor the threads a year ago.
Its hard to say how this is going to turn out. For starters the /b/ and /co/ population has never played nice, and now have been mashed together big time. The /b/ general threads did get banned awhile ago and I know some had wandered into the MLPGs, but now we’re forced together. It might be good, but it’ll probably be more like Phillie after the Eagles win a game. Burning buildings, thousands upon thousands of enraged drunks roaming the streets, being deafening by the sound of car alarms going off in the distance.
Either way, its real.
Inb4 its a giant banhammer trap.
