I've got a friend who can't post on the site. As he puts it:

>When I try to post it just gives me a white page with no text or anything, similar to ponychans try again later error, but without the text.

Any advice?

Rumor has it that this issue was solved. But maybe not.

How big is the GIF? PHP and nginx might need further configuration changes to accept larger files.

I think there should be some rule of etiquette for the fanwork boards, /art/ and /fic/.

As an artist, it saddens me to see how the pony community is when it comes to fanworks. Whenever I visit Ponychan's /fic/ in the past, there's always someone who wants to "review fics", want to "criticize", or slam a person just because "they can't write".

What these people don't realize is that fans put a lot of hard work into their things, whether it's a simple sketch, or a fanfic. Fans are NOT professionals, they do this because they like the show and ponies.

There is a big difference between someone asking for proofreading and improvements, and someone who just want to share a story they came up with. People can have opinions, but there is a difference telling someone that "it wasn't their cup of tea" and "You need to be slapped by a well written book and learn how to write!"

I can't help but think the elitist prereaders of Equestria Daily helped influence this on fans. Fan-fiction and fan-art has never been a professional form of medium, never has, and never will be. Just because there's quality works, does not mean slam or attack others for simply being fans and creative.

Thanks for your time reading this guys. I just hate for this to become the next Equestria Daily or Ponychan /fic/.

Constructive criticism is probably a habit - I know a lot of people like to have a very honest response to whatever they post so they can grow and improve, and I think that's become the norm rather than the exception with regard to how people treat comment boxes. I can understand not wanting it though and sharing something just for general fun and enjoyment, so I definitely see where you are coming from ^_^

From my side (if I didn't know) I'd possibly end up dropping a little bit in (along with saying what's good about it though - that's important!) to show that I care and paid attention to the content. I know quite a few find it a bit insincere if they just receive praise and nothing else ^^
But I'd certainly not do it if it was unwelcome, nor try to if it's clear it's just shared for fun between friends.

As for saying "You need to be slapped by a well written book and learn how to write!" though, that's not constructive, that's plain rude and arrogant - and I wholeheartedly agree with you that people shouldn't be saying things like that.

May I object? Not really with the entire concept, but with the part where you are comparing EQD to /fic/, these two are as similar to one another as RPG is to FPS.
EQD differs from /fic/ for the simple reason that it's, as it has been mentioned before, a display window, it's a place where the best fanworks are shared with the pickiest audience. You want to share a fanfic? Great! There are sites for that! But EQD specializes, from my point of view, in displaying fanwork where the audience has been considered during the production. If you don't care about the audience, then why should EQD care about you? A bit selfish of you, eh?
And to those that complain that they were mistreated by pre-readers, I don't know if there were any serious cases, but if you get a message that states something like "You need to improve your grammar" or "you should work on character development", then maybe you should take a moment to sit right there and take this critique to the heart? Because I'm talking here from personal experience now, but when I am clustered with a shit ton of fuck, then I'd tend to be missing a lot fuck due to the enormous amounts of fuck if I'd want to deal with it in one go, so I usually use my fork and knife to cut the fuck into little pieces instead of swallowing it whole, and I'd probably guess same story applies to them, maybe those character development or grammar problems shine so brightly that they blind the pre-readers from giving any further feedback?
What else... Ah! If you get such a short review as nope, then maybe you should really re-evaluate your story since it quite possibly is that bad or just send it to different pre-reader? And the "go away" comment? Sounds quite nasty, but then again, I'd prefer to check for the context of this reply, because it sounds more like an attempt to vilify EQD pre-readers.

I know your feel having done alot of artwork and almost never received a comment, except only when i did it was someone telling why it sucks or whats wrong with it and then they draw something even worse lol happens all the time i probably do the same thing

but really mostly its just because not many people go to art threads to 'chat' so unless your making friends and inciting people to discussion all your likely to get is criticism

the goal should really to understand first and foremost that either you A create the work for yourself and the enjoyment of anyone should happen to also see it, in which case you wont care if people are criticizing your work, (this is exceedingly rare) or you are creating it to be recognized or accepted in which case you just have to accept other people like other things and are going to heavily criticize you, the key is learning to accept criticism gracefully, i try to accept criticism as a gift of knowledge whether the person is right or wrong, either way i still learned something, wisemen learn more from fools than fools form wise men, now if we could only get people to act this way (read: not going to happen)

Is there any possibility that /mus/ could support files such as .mp3 and .wav

I consider those very important since we are talking about sharing music.

Have a nice day Lunachan users.

I'll look into it. I believe kusaba has some way to do so because there's an audio player, but no instructions on how to use it.

why is it when i google lunachan a bunch of unrelated stuff comes up and i cant even get to the site? I think if there is anyway to get us on the google page when someone googles lunachan that could actually get more people to the website... im not an expert on SEO, but maybe someone else could help?

We noticed this. It is likely to decrease traffic because people are more likely to click on the higher link, and the possibility people will tell others not to visit lunachan "because it gave them viruses."

>No Comic Sans. Breakers of this rule will be permabanned.

I just have a question about the rule, since some may fall victim to this without even realizing it. I did some research on the said font today (forced to use it in school a few times since we couldn't install better fonts, heck I fought with the school to replace IE with Firefox, but that failed because "IE is best browser" *rolls eyes*).

My question, what if someone links to something that has the said font. Not content formatted with it, but it pops up randomly (example an advertisement or something) would the person who posts such be banned too.

It's just an unclear rule, whether it's posting stuff or linking to something and it pops up in an ad or something unintended. Also, if someone is talking in /g/ may fall victim as it was used in early Sims games, and quite a bit of people played.

Just a question about the rule, that's all. I'll admit, I never knew the font was so hated to be honest.

you know this whole comic sans incident started right after my power was cut off apparently. When my power finally came back on I missed the whole thing. I still have no idea what happened, thats the fist time my power has been cut off, did comic sands cut off my power? Very eerie

This is the official Bronychan favicon competition thread!

What is a favicon you ask? It's the website's icon that appears to the immediate left of the URL, and next to site titles in the bookmark bar.

Rules:
It must be Pony related
It must be 16x16 or 32x32 pixels

Nope! The old sysadmin had his site, my site, and Lunachan running on a little macbook mini. I actually got this server for $20 at a surplus sale. And as far as supercomputers, they aren't as hard or as expensive to make as one might think, especially if you make a Beowulf cluster.

Everything we know and love is in that box. How is that even possible.

Whoever says we don't live in a fantastic era is terribly mistaken.
