#1203121 A New Hope: Tech Team Reinforcements

Posted by Sky Warden on 23 February 2013 - 01:18 AM

Community Stewards, not Tech Admins ^^ These two are going to be the assistants of Scoots and Feld0 by helping develop codes and such for the forum and its' branches, they're not spearhead System Admins like Felidicorn and the turkey. Ascending to that rank is incredibly difficult and takes a lot of trust and a lot of skill. Plus, we don't particularly need more actual Sys Admins anyway, most sites only have one. Scoots and Feld0 just need some help with certain aspects that alleviate their workload, and a simpler sand box to play in ;)


Never have I been so wrong.


I guess you're right. Need a lot of skill and trust. The most recent time I tried to help my friend with his website, I was scared to change any single thing without his permission. For those new Community Stewards, I wish you a good chance to proof your skill and may ascend to a higher rank. If that's permitted of course.


In this case, I assume that MLP Forums is like a double-ended spear.

P.S. Or a spear with two branches and two blades in one edge. More gustas.

For those that may not know, the MLP Forums techponies have been stretched pretty thin lately. Despite our most valiant efforts, the tech todo list continues to grow faster than we can finish things up. In addition to this, the ongoing maintenance required to keep MLP Forums online and running smoothly can sometimes be remarkably time-consuming.

No matter how efficient we are, the fact remains that we have had two techponies for a forum of over 10,000 members, and unfortunately, we cannot devote ourselves entirely to the site. Feld0 has to contend with school and other obligations. I, myself, have to contend with a job that typically doesn't leave me with much energy at the end of the day. While we can pull an all nighter to solve major issues, pulling all nighters to solve every single issue that comes up is simply not practical due to our other obligations.

With all of that said, despite our resource constraints, we have actually been doing a remarkable amount of activity. Behind the scenes, we have been making steady progress towards completing some exciting new developments for the community. These developments are things that are going to dramatically improve the overall experience for members of MLP Forums, but they take time to pull off - time and energy.

Up until this point, all of this activity still drew from the same, limited pool of resources. But... No longer. Now, we are adding reinforcements. Some of you may have noticed the addition of two new community stewards. Don't worry, there is no conspiracy taking place. Allow me to introduce the ponies that are going to be helping us to build the greatest MLP discussion site online.


Lavoaster has worked with us in the past to build a number of hooks and features for MLP Forums. He is comfortable with IP.Board and site styling, and he is now on board to help us out with keeping MLP Forums cross-browser compatible, working on top secret projects, stomping bugs, and creating more cool features for members to enjoy. In fact, since coming on board, he has already dealt with a rather tedious issue (the navigation buttons should no longer cover the notifications and login fields in certain browsers).


Neikos is the author of the MLP Forums chrome extension, and he is an experienced webmaster with development experience across a variety of programming languages. He is here to aid us in ironing out imperfections, working on top secret projects, and building cool things. He's actually already digging into a fairly substantial project that will be of great interest to quite a few members when it is revealed at a later time.
It's my hope that all of you will happily welcome our new additions to the staff! Thanks to them, I may be able to get just a bit more sleep, and MLP Forums will continue to improve, at a greater speed than before.


#1203023 Am I seriously the only one who doesn't like the .MOV series?

Posted by hawkflame on 22 February 2013 - 11:44 PM

I don't like it, either. Hell, I absolutely loathe it. The PONY.MOV series is everything that MLP isn't. It isn't funny, it doesn't have any of the qualities that makes the show good, and it certainly isn't what I look for when I watch ponies.


But that's part of what makes it so good, though- because it *is* so strange and different.  It's like an R rated Ren and Stimpy.  Personally I love Party.MOV the best.

#1202417 My MLP Forums Review

Posted by Zoop on 22 February 2013 - 08:28 PM

The kind words and positive review are very much appreciated - a great deal more time, effort, and energy goes into this place than many folks would expect; it's always nice to hear from folks that believe it to have been put to good use. :)

#1200938 If each of the Mane 6 had their own philosophy

Posted by DashForever on 22 February 2013 - 12:47 PM

Pinkie Pie - Thomas Hobbes ("Surrender your autonomy to the Leviathan, Dashie!)

Oh my gosh, all of these were great but when I read that in Pinkie's voice... I got some weird glances from how hard I was laughing XD. She needs to say that in an episode.

#1200395 Why are there more pro-Twilicorns than anti-Twilicorns?

Posted by TailsIsNotAlone on 22 February 2013 - 09:14 AM

There aren't pro and anti-Twilicorns. That's an oversimplification. There are a lot of bronies who feel differently about the season finale and have their own issues with it, Twilicorn being only one of them.


We don't need to divide the fandom over this. Acting like there are just two opposite sides to the issue creates an unpleasant environment for everyone.

#1200307 Why are there more pro-Twilicorns than anti-Twilicorns?

Posted by Flxpturn on 22 February 2013 - 08:38 AM

You're always going to be anti-Twilicorn? Even though she's only spent three damn minutes as an alicorn? Even though you've not seen her status as an alicorn applied to any episodes?


Riddle me this: how do you know Twilicorn is bad when it's not even been put into practice? Why aren't you following life lessons from the show as any brony should do, one of them being to always hope for the best and maintain optimism?

Posted by Rainbow Dash Loyalty on 22 February 2013 - 05:53 AM

Scootaloo! Sorry to Big Mac, but he doesn't appeal to much nearly as much as Scootaloo does. Scootalove is definitely one of the best fanons ever!


#1199373 How many pony pictures do you have? (be honest)

Posted by Gone Airbourne on 21 February 2013 - 09:58 PM

Kind of what I do, minus the organizing.

My computer, desktop, is a mess at the moment with random pictures and stuff. But yes I love it when you can find some very nice pictures on devianart by just snooping around long enough. As for the scootalove :3 nothing more adorable than that.

#1196752 Huge thanks to the staff

Posted by Harmonic Revelations on 21 February 2013 - 10:39 AM

The staff has definitely been great on the site as a whole. They are some of the most lenient and understanding staff teams I've seen. I've been a part of several website staff teams before and let me tell you, it takes a huge amount of effort to do your job right AND be nice about it.


So as for saying the staff team is great here...well...


#1196732 Huge thanks to the staff

Posted by Derpy Azusa on 21 February 2013 - 10:31 AM

I just wanna say thank you to every staff member here at MLPForums for making this community what it is today. Even though I'm a fairly new member here the staff has been amazing so far they take the time to interact with the members, and are one of the nicest staff team out of any forums I've been on. If it wasn't for the founder Feld0 this site wouldn't be around, and if it wasn't for the dedicated staff team it wouldn't be as amazing as it is. So thanks to every staff member for making this the best site ever

You accidently misspelled "Being a jackass" as "Replying on the forums".

Scootaloo. Better developed, more adorable, epic scooter tricks, my co-leader of the Dashie fan club, star of the season's best episode, that smashes anything Big Mac's got going for him. (Plus I nominated her ;))
