  1. As the title reads. :3 I believe you guys may find this fun, to come here and express your moods using the powa of teh gif! My current mood would be something like this:
  2. (Not to be confused with the "What kind of forum poster are you?" thread. Different questions.) Just because I'm curious. So... a few questions. 1. How often do you post? 2. What section do you post in most frequently (check your "stats" tab on your profile)? 3. What page of the member list are you on when it's ordered by post count? 4. What time of day to you post most often ("stats" tab again)? The Lurker Test: If you feel like calculating, take your post count and divide it by the amount of days online (If 12+ hours round up) to see how much of your time you spend lurking as opposed to posting compared to others. For me, 1. Around ten posts per day, according to the last time I divided my post count by the amount of days since I joined. 2. Forum games by far, then forum lounge, and general discussion. 3. Page 12. 4. One in the morning, followed by midnight and then 11 P.M. I scored a 30 on the Lurker test.
  3. I'm not sure about everyone else, but when I make a post, I tend to read over it many times, double check it, triple check it, quad-triple check it, etc... Usually only when posting topics though. How about everyone else? Are you very cautious when posting?
  4. What kind of poster are you? The reason I ask is because through the time I've been a member here I've constantly been fairly active and I've seen some patterns arise among members. I can almost identify all the artist members now, the hardcore role players, and others. So what about you? How do you like to post?
  5. Basically what rank you want to get to by the next January 1st. For me it would be Dragon or Changeling, so that I don't look like a newbie with my post count currently.
  6. This came to mind share a song listen to it and share what it means to you then post another. One of my favorite Rise Against songs
  7. I was posting (in beyond equestria), and then there was this label that said waiting for moderator approval. But I haven't gotten a warning yet. Am I under the mod queue?
  8. I've been trying to upload images to a post in a blog. But I've been having problems trying to make it look right in the Post Preview. The images I intend to use chiefly come from the MLP Wiki. Let's use this as an example which I found on this address: For Each Method I tried, I've listed the steps I've used and provided what the Post Preview reveals to me. Method 1: Copying and Pasting 1. I right-click the target image, then click "Copy Image" from the menu. 2. I paste it directly into the post editor in precisely the spot I want the target image to be. 3. It appears how I want it to be. 3. I click "Post Preview" button to see what the readers would see. Post Preview Result: I find that instead of the image appearing like above, in its spot is a long line of technical text like this: http://vignette4. FAIL Method 2: Attach Files button (in advanced uploader mode) 1. I right-click the target image, then click "Save Image as" from the menu. 2. I save By default, my computer save the target image as an png file. The example above saves the file name as: Applejack_--really_cracked_the_corn_this_time--_S5E20 3.I click the "Choose Files..." button under Attach Files on the Advanced Editor. 4. I find the image where I saved it and open it. 5. It gets added to the list of attachments under the Editor (thumbnail looking exactly how I wanted it to look to my readers and text saying"Applejack_--really_cracked_the_corn_this_time--_S5E20.png") 6. I would place the cursor where I would want the image to be 7. I hit the "Add to Post" link next to the image. 8. Text saying: appears in the spot where I want it. 9. I click "Post Preview" button to see what the readers would see. Post Preview Result: Instead of the image appearing correctly, I get a broken image of a beach with a blue hyperlink to the intended picture. I can't publish my blog entries if my images show up looking like that! FAIL! You know, I've post images using the Attach Files method on regular topics like the Episode discussion topics within the last few weeks and it worked fine. Could it be because I'm in blog mode or something? Can you please give me more advice on what I should to get my images up right. I'm not publishing my blog entries until the text and pictures are in their proper spot on the Preview Post". Thankfully, my entries are in draft mode until then.
  9. How do I mention someone in a post? I don'y know how Thanks
  10. Hi, so recently, I couldn't post in threads. I could make status updates, and reply to blog posts, but not forum topics, or even start new topics. Then I remembered that my donor status just expired. Sure enough, I donate, and suddenly I can post again. Is this a bug or something? Because I shouldn't need to be a donor to be allowed to post.
  11. Hello. Recently CKEditor (for those that might be unaware, the editor that IP.Board uses) keeps crashing. It does it both in quick reply, full reply, and when posting topics (in fact it happened when I tried to post this topic). Basically the editor disappears and a bunch of errors are printed out to the Javascript console. I've found I can just refresh the page to fix the bug, but it's really annoying. Here is a screenshot of the Javascript debug window and the editor once it's crashed. When the editor successfully loads, no error messages are displayed in the console. Thanks, mitchfizz05.
  12. When I post a picture, it appears to have worked at first. I go to the thread and I can see it. But, when I log out and return to the forums later, the picture is gone and there is just text in its place. Can someone please help me fix this, and show me how to properly post a picture?
  13. My suggestion is pretty simple but nonetheless I think it needed to be brought up. I apologize if this has been brought up before. Below the avatar of each user there is a logo depicting their usertitle/rank. I think there should be some more information added as well such as join date, post count, etc. Here's a quick mock-up of what I'm suggesting. Sorry about the bad quality of the mock-up. I threw it together on Photoshop in a few minutes. I'm kind of a statistical person that's my reasoning behind this suggestion. It's pretty simple and easily implemented anyway. Thanks for checking out my thread! Originally Posted Mock-Up:
  14. I've been wondering this for some time now. What exactly is the purpose of the editing note you get when/if you have to edit a post anyways? I mean, it seems rather superfluous to me. Plus, with me being generally kinda OCD when it comes to small details, the little note at the bottom tends to bug me sometimes. Not all the time, but eh, sometimes it gives me the whole "your writing's not good compared to most other people's posts on here so therefore, you will be labeled :comeatus: " kind of vibe. I don't necessarily think exactly that, but for when and if I want to correct the simplest and littlest error in a post that I make, simply because I like making my writing look nice, I find it annoying that for one little error that I wanted to fix up, I get tagged with this seeming pointless note that just seems to be of little to no value to me or anyone else. I think that for editing it would be easier and a harmless nice change, especially for those of us who can't help but get all riled up over little details, if we would simply not get that editor's note whenever we want to edit a post and fix up a few errors. So I'm just wondering, what you do guys think? EDIT: See what I mean? lol
  15. I just wondered, and this is probably common sense, but how do you mention someone in a post and have it notify them? Example: @insertnamehere And that would notify whoever you post. Is it just the use of the @ before? Or do you need to do something further before it works?
  16. When I reply to something, it takes about 60 seconds before it actually posts, it just sits there saying "Saving post...", and finally, does it. My internet speed is running normally, and at an ok speed. This is probably better suited as a support ticket, but I decided I'd post here to see if anyone else has this issue, and have found a work-around or anything. Best troubling admins as a last resort.
  17. I just started writing a fan fic the other night and i have the first chapter done. I have no idea what the best way to post it is...can somepony help me please.
  18. This is a followup to the original Harmonic's Guide to Posting On The Forums (If you haven't read it, please take a moment to do so). This one comes complete with pictures ( Some that I photoshopped myself to help illustrate my points) and also to make this article look beautiful. I thought that maybe I skipped some things that really should have been put in there, but really, there were quite a few, so I decided I might as well make it into it's own post. 1.) Don't Make Drama when Leaving the Forums This is a big one, and I made a joke about it probably yesterday (Maybe the day before that) about me leaving, just to see what would happen if I simply made a status about it. Enough people replied to that status for me to say inconclusively that making a status about it is okay, but not necessary. You know what's not okay? Making several blogs, dozens of statuses about leaving, making a post about it, and presumably flying a zeppelin with "GOODBYE" written on it fly over Canada in the hopes that Feldicorn will see it. Do you know why it's not okay? It's not okay because about nine out of ten times these users come back in less of a week. I guarantee it's usually because the users did it just for attention, and not because some magical fairy warned them that leaving would spell their impending doom. Rather, if you're going to leave, do so, but don't turn it into some kind of dramatic grand finale because you're going to make yourself look bad and probably won't actually end up leaving at all. Make one blog post, or (And if it's particularly complicated, perhaps and) a status update, but don't do more than that. 2.) Don't claim other people aren't "Real bronies" This one particularly bothers me, mainly because when it is said it's usually meant as an insult. Most common topics people say this in are debates about headcanon, opinions on episodes, and opinions on Fan Content (Especially R34 content), and it also bothers me because of how hypocritical it is. Saying something like that proves without a doubt that whoever saying it is immature, and illogical. Two things that haters love to target about the fandom. By doing this, they are: A.) Showing all of the tact of a mentally delayed cheeto dust covered comedy writer by targeting someone's personality over a minor difference of opinion. Not pictured: Brain food B.) Making sure that any logical person will side with your opponent, maybe even due to your immaturity. "One day they'll pay, they'll all pay." ______ So what I'm saying is that this is working against your credibility if you think that just because someone disagrees with you they aren't a "Real" member of the fandom. 3.) Don't Fish for Sympathy It should be noted that I'm not saying "Don't look for someone sympathetic", I'm talking about people who fish for it like they're in a contest to gather the most people to feel bad for you. I'm talking about people who turn everything into a sob story. I'm talking about the guy who goes into a thread titled "What is your favorite candy?" and says "My entire family was murdered by a roving pack of Chocolate Bars." "You bastard" That guy is the worst. The worst part is that for people unfamiliar with people who fish for sympathy, it's hard to tell the difference between these guys and people who are legitimately sorrowful. Which is bad because it then makes it harder to actually help people who need it. If I had to make a metaphor, it would be like a building collapsing and then a hundred people hiding themselves in the wreckage so that the emergency crews would have to look through all of them instead of those legitimately injured. 4.) Don't argue unless you intend to prove your point This is a big one. Don't get into an argument unless you actually have some kind of evidence to back you up. There is no way to embarrass yourself more easily than going into an argument, actually starting to win using logic and reason, and then having nothing to drive your point home with because you had no point in the first place. You might know what I'm talking about, for example, people who argue about things that can't be proven. "Yes, Bell Bottoms are still in style on Saturn!" Unlike Hoop Earrings, which we have clear evidence of on Saturn.
  19. Okay so I just created this account today and I'm pretty new! Sorry before hand if this has already been asked and anything across those lines! D: Well I got the Welcome message from Mailmare and well when I went to click "Introducing Yourself", it took me to a page that said "Sorry! We couldn't find that." I'm just really confused on why it said that and how I can introduce myself without posting in the what's on my mind box. Sorry again if this has already been asked!
  20. When I try to post in the RP section, I get this message. I'm not quite sure if any other member gets this.
  21. The following expresses only the opinion of the author, not necessarily that of the staff or the users. This is my guide to posting on the forums. I know that some of you cringed at the thought of some people taking my advice on posting on the forums, don't worry about it, take some anteacid and just relax. It's just for people who want a little advice on how to post, in an easy numbered list for easy viewing. I'm not plotting to destroy anyone at the moment, so you are safe. If you follow this simple guide you to can both be a reputable and valuable member of the forums while simultaneously decreasing the work load of the moderators. #1: Respect your fellow forumites This is one that a lot of people need to take to heart. The problem with not doing this is not as prevalent on this forum as it is on others I've seen, but the problem still emerges from time to time, so I'm going to talk about it. You know how it happens, you're reading through a thread and someone may say something a bit unusual and then someone comes and drills them about it. There is a fine line between correcting someone and being a complete dick, and it's a line that you need to understand before you post in any debate. The line is respect, if you do not understand what respect means to me, or how to spell respect, then you have no childhood. But you know what's an even worse and more despicable? Drilling someone for a harmless opinion. I've seen it happen, someone gingerly posts in a thread and within an hour the entire thread is a war zone. I can understand being a bit upset if someone says something that's a bit offensive, but you have to remember, it's no better to point them out on it. It's best to report them for abusive behavior, because chances are if it offends you, one of a few things are true; A.) Other People are offended to (Report them) B.) You're overreacting or misunderstanding the post (Make sure you understand what you're reading before calling judgement) Because of B, many times people who get offended by an opinion are at no fault but their own for their anger or sadness. Remember when posting that there are very real people behind every username here, and that they too have lives and feelings. #2: Don't Derail Threads Absolutely one of the easiest offenses you can make, making a pointless or off-topic post that ends up derailing a thread. Not only is doing that disrespectful to the OP, but it's not going to do anything but make you look like a fool. Making a joke is okay, if it's relevant. But do not go into a thread about the meat industry and start spurting jokes about rocket controlled flying potted plants. If you have something you need to say to someone, and it has nothing to do with the thread, I can help you out with a simple link. Send them a PM: If it's something that doesn't need to be said to anyone in particular, and may be a bit silly/doesn't fit anywhere else, feel free to use the forum lounge: At the very least, try to remember that the OP made whatever thread they did for a reason, and you'd be doing the entire community a disservice by trying to derail the discussion. #3:Don't make posts that tell people to brohoof This is going to be a short description since it's fairly simple, and it's a mistake I see a bunch of new posters making. Do not tell people to brohoof your posts, not only does it make you look desperate but I for one NEVER brohoof a post that says to, even if I would have if it did not have that bit of request at the end. And chances are, believe it or not, if you have to retroactively tell people to like your post it's probably not a very good post to begin with. People will brohoof a post if they like it, it doesn't need some kind of prompt to do it. #4:Don't discredit other people/news for no reason You know what I'm talking about. In a thread about good news, there is a guy who will say how it could have been better or how it's part of some secret conspiracy to replace us all with clones of Tom Hanks. While they may or may not be right, they are just being jerks by doing that, unless they word it a very specific way. Because unless you think about what you're typing, you could sound to be insulting a person or group that has legitimately done a good deed. And as you all know, receiving criticism for saving puppies from a burning building does not make the recipient of said criticism feel good. It also makes you look like an insensitive prick, especially if the person posting the criticism has never done such a deed themselves. Someone does not deserve criticism for donating to the rebuilding of an orphanage, and for some reason, some people seem to find that surprising, or at least their posting history implies such surprise. #5:Don't preach doom This is the one that happens all the time on these forums, and you know what I'm talking about. Twilicorn caused this on a biblical level; if you're not familiar with such things, a doom sayer's post most likely reads like some variation of this: "Guys, we have just received news that a minor plot arc is taking effect. One that nobody knows anything about except the basic outline. We all know what this means, the end of the fandom. Guys, I'm sorry about this, but I'm going to have to leave because I am a drama queen/Attention-seeker" At least, that is how I read such posts. I'm sure a lot of you read them the same way. You know why? Because most of the time, these people are attention-seekers or just being dramatic for the sake of it. You know what the best way to deal with changes to the show is? Wait until they happen to pass judgement. It's the equivalent of if Game Informer had released a review of Halo 4 saying it was the worst game ever made four months before it's release. There's no way such predictions can be accurate. #6:Use proper grammar and spelling (To the best of your ability) This is not asking you to be Einstein and be a super genius master of the English language, but please, when you post, leave your text-speak at the door and put on your proper English. You do not need to post immaculate strings of text that rival the works of Shakespear, you need to type on such a level that people know what you're saying. The average violator of this makes posts that read something like this: "OMG Guaze u no dat 4 3 yers i wuz eh enngrish teechair butt i god shott oouwt de w1nd0ww width eh bulldozer becuze mi classe cud knot stend me" I know that if English is not your first language, it can be tough, but please, if your post is so bad that when you run it through spell check it looks like the red tide because of all the red wavy lines, then please, do not post it. I'm almost one hundred percent sure that if you take your time posting you can do better. If you can't do better, improve your English before posting. #7:Do not be raunchy, disgusting, or vulgar This is one that very specific users are responsible for. I won't name names because I'm a nice person, but I'm just going to describe it. This has become increasingly prevalent in Forum Lounge and I'm sure the mods do not appreciate it. We do not need graphic descriptions (Or worse, PICTURES) of sex or extreme violence. We do not want extreme detail in your text about sexual encounters. Leave that outside the forum. Usually, sexual innuendo is okay, maybe even a joke about it here or there, but not anything extreme, and do not target a specific user. It can be okay to make mature jokes, but do not dedicate a thread to things that are best left elsewhere. I AM going to point out a particular group that's responsible for this, the #Yiff group. Please, for the love of God, leave that shit at the door, or take it to furaffinity. Nobody wants to hear about your fetishes on this site, and even if they did, discussing it off-site is the best course of action. The reason of course I pointed out #Yiff is that's a blatant offender of this. Mainly because such topics can be ideologically offensive to a large number of people. I'm not targeting it because I'm against the people in such groups, but the thing is, that does not belong here, on this site. There is a good reason why making NSFW posts earns you at least 800 warning points. If you cannot stop making vulgar posts, this probably isn't the best place for you. ______________________ Follow this guide and you to may one day be a very reputable member of the forums
  22. If this topic has been made before, I did not see it in search.Go to your profile. Click on 'Stats' on the profile bar on the left. Scroll down to the second graph that says 'Most Popular Boards by Posts'. Which forum is at the top? Second? Third? What are the forums you post the most in, here on MLPForums? Are you a pony discusser? An off-topic addict? An RP whorse? A welcome section door man? A forum games couch potato? Or maybe a creative resources subordinate?My top three:1: Sugarcube Corner. What can I say, I love discussin' the generic ponies.2: Welcoming Plaza. I'm one of those OCD ponies who posts in all the welcoming threads they come across. Only a few slip by me now and again when I'm asleep xD3: Show Discussion. Again, love discussin' the ponies. After that it gets into off topic general discussin', which aren't as long as the first three.How about you?
  23. I've not sure if this is just a trivial manner or if it actually abhors to people, but the welcoming plaza is a place to welcome newcomers, correct? This is just me pointing out, but why are there still posts all the way back to 2011 up? People responding to old welcome posts, whether that old or even just a week old, sort of have the potential to drown out actual newcomers to the site. Me? As a recommendation, I wouldn't mind seeing these posts either deleted or locked from posting after a minimum of around 3-5 days after post creation. This allows newcomers to the site an appropriate amount of time to post in the welcome post and to respond to any post's that are made afterwards. It would also get rid of the chance of old posts drowning newer ones. I'm not saying this is actually happening right now, but I do see some old posts from time to time just randomly popping up a week or so old. Plus it does get rid of the potential to do this from happening. What does everyone think of this?
  24. So, you want to make a successful post and get the forever lasting love and admiration of the ponies around you. Well, so do i. So, we should think of something together! What are the makings of a clever post. We shall list them to get a general idea of what we are looking for! Ok, we know ponies like comedy. So something with a kind of funny demeanor and over all witty-ness about a topic either something serious made funny, or an already topic seems like it would be one of the better options. We also know ponies like to think and converse. An idea or question that provokes thoughts is one way to do this we know. But, a question just for thoughts isn't enough, we need something that ponies have an opinion about so they feel compelled to share it and see what other ponies agree or disagree. Ponies love cute stuff, a cute picture seems to be a quick, easy way to get some brohoofs! (*cough* +picture *cough*) As proven here. Ponies also have a very distinct taste in art and culture. If you have the talent, you may want to draw your rendition of your favorite pony or scene. (As a side note to this, ponies seem to want to support someone whether their art is good or not. So, why not give it a shot! Im sure they'll love it! even if it isn't very good!) Another quick way to a ponies heart is with some endearing literature or some sick beats! So if you have the patience to write a masterpiece or Shred some notes, it won't go unnoticed. Now that we have talked about the topics of a good post, lets talk about the mechanics. Ponies appreciate good vocabulary and grammar. (Ponies are somewhat grammar nazis ) In conclusion, have a basic understanding of elementary grammar elements to have a truly successful post......or just spell check. I believe we have covered all the basics! Toss in your own flavor or personality to identify with other ponies! Welp, that's all i got! So, go now! And post! And be successful! JK Awaits your coming triumph over the pony armies! Earning you all the love and kisses! Make JK Proud! EDIT: Oh ponies, i almost forgot the MOST IMPORTANT part of getting brohoofs and general love and admiration! Be female
