/mlp/ Rules FAQ
0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
The response to the recent increase in moderation activity calls for a refresher on the rules. Here is an FAQ that should hopefully cover most of it.
Q1. What material is considered "not safe for work"?
A1. Let us first refer to the rules relevant to this topic:
Suppose you work in an office, and you really like Barney. All your coworkers know this and they think it's quirky and tolerable. You are a member of an internet fandom revolving around Barney and his dinosaur friends. Some people draw fanart of Barney and his friends. Some of this fanart is questionable or even downright pornographic.
If you would not be risking your job or reptuation by letting a particular image of Barney in this hypothetical office setting be seen on your computer by your hypothetical coworkers, then the image is not safe for work.
Replace the show with MLP:FiM and you have the test that is applied to determine if an image should be deleted and/or its poster banned.
Q2. Why are so many generals being deleted?
A2. Any general revolving around a sexual fetish involving horses cannot possibly be construed as SFW. There are places for discussing those things, and that place is not the work-safe /mlp/ board. Rather than deleting 90% of a thread and watching it throughout its lifetime, those threads are just going to be deleted.
A thread about discussing Fluttershy raping you is not safe for work, a thread about abusing and raping child-like fluffy ponies is not safe for work, a thread about pony ass worship is not safe for work, etc.
Here's a rule of thumb: Imagine yourself describing the content of a given general to your coworkers or non-horsefucking friends. Is spaghetti flowing out of your pockets before you're halfway done?
"Well, it's a thread about ass worship. (DANGEROUS TERRITORY) Uh. But only about horse (I HOPE THE NEXT WORD IS 'RIDERS') asses (NOPE. TOO LATE TO GO BACK NOW.). We post lots of drawings of our favorite horse asses and masturbate to them. (LOVE IS OVER)"
Q3. Hey! Why did scruffy delete X? X didn't have any porn in it!
Oh, and >>>/mlp/rules/7 . Ponies only! No anthro. What counts as anthro? Let's refer to this chart: http://i.imgur.com/HTSAiRZ.jpg
Do not post 3. 4 is pushing it. Satyrs are not allowed. Humanized IS allowed, but it has to be fully or near-fully (4 on that chart) humanized.
Q4. Well, I remade my thread and the new one didn't even have any porn in it when Scruffy deleted it again! So I kept making it and it kept getting 404'd. Why?
A4. If you make a post like that, then you're clearly aware of the rules, you're aware that your last post was deemed to be in violation of the rules, and yet you're making more posts in the same vein which are against the rules. This will result in a ban.
We hope this helps clarify things.

Old thread 404'd
Hey, /mlp/, we're doing a reading of a gigantic 200 chapter long fanfic and we want YOU to participate!
For those not in the know, here's a quick timeline of what happened:
>anon discovers horrendous autistic selfinsert egotrip fanfic
>it's one shy of 200 chapters long, holy shit
>anon brings up the idea of making a giant audiobook out of all of it
>one person volunteers
>other people chip in, eventually a system is created to keep track of recorded chapters etc.
>participation is higher than ever expected, we get roughly 29 chapters done in a single day
>As of today we have 145 recorded chapters out of 199 total, about 3/4 the way there!
And this is where the story continues...
So this is how it works; You call dibs on a chapter by saying "dibs on chapter #", and if that chapter is free, I'll assign you to it.
Then, you have three days to produce a recording of you reading that chapter.
Please note that we have standards, so no shitty mics, loud background noise, or any such things. It doesn't have to be professional, but it should be easy to understand and not a chore to listen to.
For a spreadsheet of what chapters are available, see here:

>"You have been banned from this server."
What kind of autistic hugbox operation are you guys running on this damn server, we can allappreciate the want for a good dogfight every now and then, but banning people who use the guns designed to prevent spawn killing? It wasn't a heatseeker, I didn't break your fucking rules.
Are you all this autistic, can you not deal with playing actualy games? Do you have to make stupid rules so you can feel amazing then ban anyone who gets inventive or wants to try and win?
