What the buck is up everypony, it's finally time to submit your event/panel ideas and vendor forms!

>Applications
Events/panels: https://forms.gle/e2DyrBkGEBRNnsjC6
Vendors: https://forms.gle/8sMQH8B5W22SYAjg8

>When is /mlp/ con 2021?
June 11-13, 2021

>What is /mlp/ con?
We're trying to organize an online convention for /mlp/
It will focus on: 1) the show, 2) /mlp/, and 3) the fandom.
Check out some of our events from 2020 that are linked from this site: https://mlpcon.online/schedule.html
Most CyTube streams from last year are here: https://pony.tube/videos/watch/playlist/56ba84cb-2662-4b68-85d2-14a368bcd245

>How will the con be held?
Special event threads
Live streams on YouTube, Pony.Tube, or Twitch broadcast via CyTube
Pre-recorded videos made for the con viewed on CyTube
During the con, most activity and interaction will occur on the con thread and/or CyTube

>(You) can help by volunteering to...
Maintain online planning documents (including general planning doc like last year)
Contact event hosts/panelists to ensure they have everything they need for a great event/panel
Help support any vendors we may have
Help design a better web site for vendors and/or the con
Contact people you know who could help (show guests who may want to participate or anyone else you think could help make the con more fun and exciting)
Maybe help us with some art of Contard/Anon Filly/something else we can use on the con site and as thread OP images
Organize some sort of charity thing?
Help hosts/panelists livestream!

>What's next?
Sign up to host an event/panel or be a vendor
Can someone design a better way to support vendors?

Pony Town guys apparently aren't comfortable working with /mlp/ anymore, so unless there's a third party pony town type server, probably not.

>>36874039

It is actively being worked on, they're adding new parkour courses, building out the Hilton, finished a newer share-a-ton, and even a Janny John's

>>36874989
Bruh, ever since last year I've done my best just keep as far away from those sort of people as possible. Last time I looked at the pony town general it was full of off board furry drama. I just can't be bothered with these faggots anymore and they are the main reason I don't use discord or have a twitter account.
>>
>>36874996
Yeah they organize the cons on their discord
mlp.one has a link to their discord, most of the stuff they've been talking about is the minecraft server or va guests, or thread dates
>>
>>36875012
>organize the cons on their discord
no, we don't.
the minecraft people are organizing that build via discord, yes.
but the con is being organized here, in these threads.

cant wait for the con .
I bought some stuff for the princess.
I bought a Koran . That is all

Though I am still up in the air if I should stream it or record it then premier it .

Streaming it will make it live of course . But every other word would be cut off and . I have never found a way to fix it .

But recording it will fix everything . But I wont get the feeling of if I fuck up everyone will watch me fuck up in real time.
Also I am sure everyone likes livestreaming more than recording .

>>36877696
The problem is my internet connection and being under the bridge . Like I have had problems people here me clearly when I am out and about,

I know it is not a phone problem . Becuase a few months after the first con ended I bought a new phone . When I tried to livestream again . I had the same problems as the first time .
While at that time I did not have a Bluetooth connected just my phone.

There's not gonna be g5 shit right?

I already mentioned this last time but OP for the rewatch streams here and I'm planning to do a waifu stream where I play an episode based on each of the mane six, as voted by respective waifufags of those ponies, alongside nostalgic fan videos focusing on them. It will probably take at least 3-4 hours, but as I'm a eurofag I can do it earlier in the day and could host it on my own Cytube if that makes things easier.

If you can set it up, best compromise would be stream+record. So people can watch it live with all its choppy as fuck glory. Then you upload the recording later if people want to heard what you said in more detail.
>>
>>36878531
I'm more worried about it being forced and fake as fuck like how the drawfag panel was wasted on gallus

Just want to throw in my post once again. Glad to see the threads are back.

I am planning a two hour writing panel for June 12, 6 pm. Application has been sent.

The plan for the time block is as follows

1) PROSE SECTION - Start with intro on what writing is, history of writing / fanfiction, get into the basics of MLP fanfiction, and the fundamentals of writing (show v. tell, pacing, form, plots, etc.)
2) Interlude to read one of the fics featured on FIM (depending on what chat chooses; will only be first few chapters depending on length of the fic). After reading, will go over what was good or bad about the fic.
3) Get into the specific genres of MLP fanfiction, using FIM's list of genres for simplicity's sake (Adventure, Sadness, Dark, etc.) Use popular examples of each and explain how to do each good.
4) One more interlude to read another fanfic from FIM.
5) GREEN TEXT SECTION - Start with awesome intro which will be a green text story.
6) Get into history of green text, some of the first great pone green texts, and where it stands as an art form now.
7) Read some green texts chosen by the board beforehand (feel free to start offering suggestions now and I will take note!) and go over what was good, bad.
8) Get into how to write a good green text (pacing, perspective, how to write a good Anon, etc.)
9) Finish with question session and final closing remarks + unveil all of my SUPER SECRET, EXCLUSIVE quotes that I have received from supporting members of the community and the writing community at large.

This entire thing is going to be tongue-in-cheek and for fun, keep in mind, but the writing advice itself will be GENUINE and I think very helpful for new writers (I don't claim to be any sort of writing Nostradamus, but even expert writers might learn a thing or two). No I am not someone with 5000 followers on FIM but I do have a decent following, and some decent stories to show for it.

Let me know if you have any questions / suggestions.

Welp nevermind . I thought of an idea that was so autistic that It might work to fix my sound problems/

And it worked . So it looks like if nothing bad happens the sound problem SHOULD be fixed for the con .
>>
>>36882692
the sound still sound scuffed . But the MAIN problem I wanted to fix was when the sound would go out randomly .

Also surprisingly of all I am getting a solid 30fps under the bridge somehow.

Hey guys, I plan on masturbating for the whole three days while inserting beer bottle necks into my asshole. During this time I will record all of my cumshots. The time blocks will be as follows:
1) June 12th:
I will be using granny smith cider bottles and cumming into an alicorn potion bottle. The semen will be refrigerated with my mini fridge next to me.
2) June 13th:
At the very end of the con I will chug all of the semen at once from a nice fridge cold glass while singing the my little pony opening song. I will record myself growing wings and drinking the semen.

How do you fags feel about a "Gaming hall", we're at certain times during the con we hold game lobbies for various games for fags to join and play around
Idea comes mostly from the after rewatch stream tf2 party, but could do something similar here and for other games probably. And which games would you be interested?
>>
>>36884605
No way I can be on the con and something like TF2 at the same time but I've got some browser games to recommend.
>https://sketchful.io/
Draw the word and others guess, can use custom words and allows up to 256 players (experimental). Has a chat box. You could ask the rewatch stream's OP to share his list of words, it used to be played regularly after the streams.
>https://puzzle.aggie.io/
Upload an image and it makes it into a jigsaw puzzle. Only problem is anyone can grab chunk of the puzzle, go AFK and halt the game, I'm not sure there's a kick function. Also has chat (ENTER key).
>https://scattergoriesonline.net/
The host can set custom categories after logging in (Facebook or Google), players don't need an account but they'll be given random names without one. Minimum of three categories and other than "pony name" and "place in Equestria" I can't think of anything good, you could just do normal scattergories + pony. Player limit is 45, has a chat box.
>https://azala.info/static/index.html
>https://picturecards.online/static/index.html
Cards Against Humanity. Lets you make a deck and play without logging in, 40 max players and chat box. Has a few pony decks already (search mlp and pony), one of them called Normlpeople.
>https://allbad.cards/
CAH, requires you to log-in to make a custom deck (Google, Facebook, Patreon), players don't need to. Has one custom pony deck I could find with a decent number of cards https://allbad.cards/pack/detail/oD6_SYepf and a player limit of 50.
The site is way too elaborate, has microtransactions to unlock certain packs, a family friendly mode, requires the host to approve every player that tries to join by default and whenever someone says a slur in chat it puts a message below the post advicing you to mute them. It looks like fucking shit and I would not recommend using it solely because of that.

From what I've gathered, the anonfilly group has caused the furfag trannies that plague Pony Town to cry to the PT jannies enough due to furfags getting assblasted. So now all of us that come from here are ebil racist nazi fag haters in the eyes of the PT devs and jannies. Plus the whole derpi niggertry didn't help last year.

Just put my app in. Looking forward to working on this project, and watching the anons reactions.

We had tons of fun on the last con, we did nothing to make the mods/devs seethe.
They allow underages. pedos and LGTVHD+ to roam on the server, and we sit in one place and we don't bother anyone. Just because we are not sucking tranny dicks and scand "BLM" it doesn't mean we are the reason for mods being faggots
>>
>>36895852
Then why did they refuse to be a part of /mlp/ con this year? I heard it's because they mods don't want to be associated with the board.
>>
>>36895852
There was also a ton of fandom drama and twitterfags enforcing often-political moralfag clauses on people and groups since then. It doesn't help that a former organizer is an alcoholic and sperged out like a retard. Expect the fedex guy and his flagrant political history of "sharing an early internet hitler meme that's on the same level as hitler dancing with glowsticks once" to embolden such places against allowing /mlp/ to interact with them. I have concerns about it affecting vendors this year too. I hope vendors remember to set up their shop sheets with ponies this year

Someone mentioned a ponytown alternative in one of the past threads, some FOE thing? That's possibly usable, same with the woefully outdated open source copy of the PT engine if someone can get it running on a server.

>>36895913

The organizers are hosting several channels on an online streaming site (cytube). As far as I know, when a panel starts they begin streaming a d*scord call with the panelist who either screen-shares their panel or streams from their camera.

>>36898293
Not really. Spoonfeeding is about not knowing board culture and the like.
>>
>>36898277
All the various panels can be watched either from a direct link or in the cytube. There will be some virtual hangouts to play around with: I know minecraft will return with an improved Baltimare Convention Center. I haven't heard any word of if the roblox thing will return. Ponytown is off the table due to their insistence.
>>
>>36898190
I'm on Dicksword. Come to the /mlp/ youtube dicksword server and ask for the writefag doing the writing panel.

If you're adverse to dicksword idk what to tell you.
>>
>>36898344
>Discord
Not necessarily
If panelists are comfortable, they'll stream by themselves (no discord needed) directly to a platform like YouTube, twitch, or maybe even pony.tube and that feed will be on the cytube
Links will be shared if anons want to go directly to the streaming site
Some panels may be streamed by a volunteer (probably me desu) and in this case a screen share on discord, jitsi, zoom, or whatever would be needed
Some anons may just release a prerecorded video, which will just get streamed to cytube
And there's always an option to do an event on the board, either in a dedicated thread or in the con thread
We haven't yet had a board event like that happen, so not really sure how it'd work
Interaction will primarily be via con threads here or the cytube chat or maybe Minecraft or whatever else people want to host.
>>
Aaaaaaand look at that, they are once again pushing for discord. Not gonna join your tranny cult, fuck off furfags.

I'm thinking of starting a small project >>36873860, mainly trying to get more art (emphasized around con merchandizing designs). But with anon's funding. Will try to work on building a virtual/imaginary booth (website) if i have enough brainpower & time to pull this off.

>how much do you need?
Well for my main goal (which is to get dakimakura designs for all 3 mascots) is around $85. Currently I managed to find an artist willing & able to do these ponies in time for the con, plus I think the art style is suitable for daki use [pic related artist's artstyle for reference]. For just one daki it's around $30. There's also other 'famous' artists with similar price points specific for dakimakuras but most of them have long queue.
Knowing that $85 is quite a lot to ask, I can also do with basically any budget. Like a normal full color full body pony is around $5-$15 usually, while the half body is cheaper. [pic related] Those samples cost around $8-$11 each depending on complexity.

>>36911874
>I'm willing to pledge $60, maybe we other anons would be willing to help make up the rest?
Well for the daki it's already mostly covered by another anon, but if you're still interested in funding this project I'd also come up with several proposals for other commissions. [pic related] I haven't got the proper quote yet but these should be a simpler art. Yeah any anon interested in funding this is welcomed, even if it's just $1 bucks, rest assured will make sure to spend every single cent.
>I assume there'd either be no profits made by anyone except artists/manufacturer?
yeah, besides PayPal taking a cut by default when anons donate and those pesky transaction fees, other than that I'll just pay the funds directly to artist for digital art commissions (no physical items involved). And then will try to organize and showcase when the con starts.
I also recorded the transactions in details here as proof.

Isn't sending $1 over paypal painful as fuck? I don't remember what their fees are, but I remember this "common wisdom" that while it's very reasonable for amounts of at least several dollars, sending just $1-2 skyrockets the fees into the double digit percentages. (I might be wrong of course.)

Not yet, but the artists all know the deadline so everything should be settled before the con starts. Also, I don't really want to update too much about the artwork, will probably only show the final product on the day of the con for the big reveal. ill let the organizers have access or something if they need to.
I'll update on the status of the specific commissions and the spendings on the spreadsheet though, its in the 'proposals & spendings' sheet

Besides the daki i also have high hopes on some other commissions, those should be suitable for custom print on merch. Currently I'm only able to spend it all on 5 commissions though, since most are quite pricey ones (cause one is for mug design, some artwork thats a bit complicated, another is a postcard). i still have some nice proposals for cheaper commission artworks that i think its suitable for stickers, prints and pins that would make up the quantity, it's all listed in the same sheet as well. But those still require some funding on that so if any anon is still interested in helping that please let me know.

since we're able to so far crowdfund so much to get something good, i wanted to try to make the presentation/reveal part more memorable so i decided to start work on a 3d place on a lego game platform. but first day of scripting for a specific thing already screwed up so i don't really have much high hopes for some 'features' of the game. nevertheless would make a room for anons to hangout.
Perhaps some anon willing to make a short panel for the reveal? (it'll probably take around than 10 minutes maybe). its still too early yet still neet to settle some basic things.

>I'd get one or two.
we'll get 3 daki artwork designs; conpone, contard and anonfilly.
>>
>>36926032
its a tradition now i wanna get that kids game involved somehow in every /mlp/ con ^:)

>>36926116
regarding the art I dunno about others but I'd rather have fewer high quality memorable artworks than a bunch of quicky shitposty ones
>>
>>36926626
But that's you, anon. I'm one of the ones who would get shitposty stuff because I can and want to.
>>
I think we might get a glitch/datamoshing panel possibly
>>
>>36926626
there's only one thats mainly for shitposting purposes, the others are more of a simpler artstyle hence the price, it's still usable for stuff like keychains and shirt designs and anons can find good use for it.
if any anon feel like just wanting to sponsor specific commissions with the sample artstyle they like (refer to the No.'s in the spreadsheet) they can as well.

Has anyone ever tried to contact Moot and get him to show up for a few minutes during the con? That would be great...

I am not that anon, but i can personally contact imalou for a panel. I have a great idea for an artfag panel with lots of artists from the board, not just Imalou.
But this one discord circlejerk already planned on discord another art from a hat panel and recruited her for it, just when i was planning my art panel in the thread. and that pretty much made my artfag panel pointless.

I could still make another artfag panel with Imalou if she’s interested, but what’s the point if that one discord circlejerk already made the “real” artfag panel for themselves with Imalou and way more artists that are in their discord and don’t even browse the board?

Friday is relatively empty, with our first event scheduled at 3pm (15 minutes), the next at 5pm (60 minutes), then a couple more from 9pm-11pm.
Saturday is pretty full with non-stop events from 7am-1am.
Sunday is pretty empty with one event at 12pm (30 minutes) and another at 5:30pm (2 hours)

I apologize, I've lurked this thread for a long time but I didn't reply as I thought anons here didn't want any "g5 content", I felt it was the best that I stick to the "drawfriends gone wild" panel and keep it low. I've received messages on Twitter aswell and I was hesitant.
Since I see the subject is on me again, I said on the first thread that I'd be happy to join any other art panel or do an interview. I cannot talk about details or draw g5 content for obvious reasons but I can talk about art and how to go the pro route, if you don't mind my thick accent. The only condition I have is that it has to be during a CET timezone. I'm open to discussions about organization.

You don't get to decide what others think, Anon. From what I can tell, G5 is kinda like EQG in that it has the board split. Some like it, some hate it, most don't really care - or in G5's case, are withholding their judgment until they see more. I'd love to find out more about G5 in a G5 panel, but that sadly isn't possible. On the other hand, I'd also like to know how Imalou got to be a part of the crew.
And in case you're wondering, I'm waiting until I see what the characters and the writing are like. The visuals may be kinda eh, but if it's well written and the characters are good, I'll definitely watch it.

An interview or something sounds like a cool idea.
G5 is a very controversial subject right now so in a way it's a good thing that you can't say much about it.

While true, avoiding topics that generate an excessive amount of butthurt (justified or no) is a decent thing to do.

The biggest gripe so far was not Imalou's involvement in G5, but Imalou being snatched by a dicksword circlejerk.

Aside of the drawfriends panel, it could be fun to have an interview while designing ponies with anon's ideas while I answer questions, I did that during MidAir. It's not easy to concentrate on both but it can lead to fun ideas. I would maybe need a second person to assist and give me the questions ! I won't have much time in the coming weeks to prepare a whole panel so I prefer to go into improvisation.

What's the best way to contact you about a panel idea?
I'd be down for an interview to discuss the things you can discuss, like how you got to be involved with G5, general art topics, and whatever else.

I don't want any G5 content. Anyplace that could be for FiM is already shat up enough with things like EQG. If we have the chance at an actual FiM event, I would like to take it.

People are lazy and herding cats to get to work is hard, so it won't be as complete as it could be, but without giving away any of the hidden secrets:
The second building of the con center is now complete, a few of the attached buildings are now there including the one that housed the hall of chaos, and the town itself has been cleaned up quite a bit.

my panel idea was basically any drawfag from the board willing to join to draw pone and talk about pone, drawing whatever they want or taking requests from any thread. pretty much a drawthread panel with some added fun stuff. doesn't matter who the artists are or how good they can't draw. I like mixing together artists of varying skill level and experience even if they're totally new to drawing or as accomplished as Imalou, so i would've been happy to have you participate, whoever you are!

>>36936313
i thought about making a second one anyway, but honestly my motivation for it got drained after that other panel got made, regardless of imalou joining it. feels like they're trying to be THE drawing panel again.

>>36936134
I wasn't going to interview her or treat her like a celebrity, and i definitely wasn't going to be doing anything g5 related for the panel. i thought a nice comfy pone drawing and art discussion panel would've been cool for anons to watch. Imalou wasn't intended to be the "main event" of the panel or anything, even if anons would've been tuning in just to see her.

>>36940237
you did nothing wrong! i get you can't talk about g5, and the panel i had in mind wasn't going to do anything with g5 anyway unless if any of the drawfags felt like drawing g5 but that would be their choice what things to draw. having you on the panel to draw pone and talk about art with a handful of other drawfags even literally who artists would've been awesome, and i think a second drawfag panel is a good idea. i'm not interested in making this second drawthread/drawfag panel myself anymore but other anons are more than welcome to steal my idea and make a comfy pone drawing panel happen.

Dude, just stop. Nothing bad in hating G5 (I don't like it too) but attacking other posts for wanting /mlp/con to have a panel with Imalou is completely missing the point. She literally said she can't even do a G5 panel ffs.

Any pony threads you make will get spammed, making the point kind of moot. I can honestly say not even a year ago would I have ever considered looking elsewhere. /mlp/ has been my home for 8 years. You look and you see the situation with EQG, I highly doubt the it will be any better with G5. Things will likely only get worse. That seems to be the only direction things can go anymore. In the past people have said that we're a sort of time capsule, maybe we can make our own of sorts. Actually have a home for FiM.

You're right anon. We should let more off boarders organize more events.
>>
>>36952237
most of the /mlp/ con organizers are discord off boarders who have the position because they are mods of the /mlp/ youtube discord or friends with the mods.

their rationale for the con being made by off boarders is that they’re not off boarders at all, saying that all people stop being off boarders the moment they browse or make a post on /mlp/, and there’s no difference between redditors, twitterfags, discord trannies, and /mlp/ anons. They even call themselves anons in their discord activities.

>I haven't heard any word of if the roblox thing will return
this year decided to make a new place instead, going to keep it smaller and simpler this time, and with a purpose (this year is to showcase the small project of anons funding to get con's mascot artwork from the Chinese)

The place is:
>https://www.roblox.com/games/6751424156/
Please ignore the random dummies and trash items its just for testing purposes.
Once entered the big room, the artworks will be on the left side of the wall (for now, the ones with bunch of spoiler decals). and the right side of the wall if there's more funding to get more commissions. The rest of the place are just for stuffs.

There's still a long way to go, still trying to make it look somewhat decent, will try to add some interactive things if I can to make the place more fun. Hopefully this year will be better than last year.
Well as always, it's opened to all anons to edit, 'Anons' that are in the group can have access to help edit and build the place if interested.

another person defended eqg and pony life, and insulted lauren faust directly
another person didn't know who tracy was until last year
another person said that nobody should be worried about the "activism" in g5, because, and I quote:
>"in all respects, twilight was a fucking activist"
also, none of them knew about snowpitys

Update status on the daki, conpone is completed. Had some last minor fixes for exports, will reveal it on the day of the con.

Also, could use some extra funding from anons, there's still more than half of the proposals that's not able to complete (don't worry those are for smaller cheaper simpler commissions). If any anon's interested in investing please let me know (if you have a specific artwork style/proposal you like to cover)

Spec did an okay thing by getting Elley. The interview was meh at best. Especially when the questions were so milk toast. He did an okay thing last year. It doesn't excuse him being fucking nigger in the threads before and after during the 2020 con. He has proven to be a clout chasing faggot. With his prime excuse of acting out as "I did it because it was funny." We don't need people like him representing the board. As autistic as we are. Atleast the austism is self contained in here.

Volunteers for the board are doing the scheduling and will be contacting panelists/event hosts
Honestly about 90% of the work always seems to fall on me desu
I did the web site, the forms, the scheduling
I'll be working to see if we can stream nsfw events on pony.tube
Need to streamline the cytube channels, fix the emotes, make the "now playing/next event" headers more automated
Devise some better way to promote the vendors
And that's just a small part
I'd love help, but for a lot of this I need offboard communication (of any type, even email) because I'm not disclosing personal details here in public
So, if you want to help, get in contact with me
I'll work on setting up a different email address if there's an interest in helping to organize

>>36954849
That channel is not for /mlp/ con, it's for that group to organize their own con events
It was used to plan their panel and interviews at BronyCon

>There is no /mlp/ con planning being done on Discord. Prove me wrong

proof cannot be attained for private conversations you and the other organizers have together.

But it’s easy to figure out that the organizers and you are doing all their planning on discord by using the elimination method. you guys dont post all your planning in these threads, and you guys have to communicate somewhere, and you guys use discord every day to talk to each other.

It's being done privately between fags who use discord religiously, of course it's planned on discord.

I've been curious for a while now but I didn't want to make a thread about it because it's just a quick question.
What's with the stigma against Discord?
>It takes discussion away from the board
Okay, I understand that point. But what about old-school IRC chats? Weren't they a thing back in the early board days?
I can't remember if using IRC was taboo back then but isn't using Discord and IRC chats the same thing?
I'm not for or against using Discord, honestly I don't care. But I am curious.
>pic unrelated
>>
>>36955355
it seems like people are using discord to build a name for themselves which wasn't really thing in ircs
at least not the ones I joined
>>
>>36955441
That seems to be more of a problem with the people, not the platform.
And during the channels lifetime, I'm sure there must be some instance of someone in an IRC trying to make a name for themselves. You can reserve nicks iirc and when you tie a name to a person then it enables that person to gain notoriety through their online persona.
Whether that's a good or a bad thing, I am sure that depends on who you ask.
>>
>>36955477
yeah but they didnt have voice calls to circlejerk eachother off with a dedicated channel to spam an unrelenting torrent of offtopic and unfunny npc memes
its bigly cringe, which is a phrase that I'm sure they would use
they think they are more important than everyone else, because they talk in a voice call and circlejerk each other off
>>
>>36955477
>the people vs the platform
the community can be just as big of a problem as the platform itself if not more so. like reddit and redditors.

we never saw IRC users relentlessly try to supplement or even replace 4chan activity the way discord trannies try to shove discord down our throats. and discord trannies act like total redditors. If IRC users acted like discordfags then you’d see 4chan complaining about IRC too.

>Have you ever streamed stuff to YouTube before using OBS or similar software?
I use OBS a fair bit. I've never done any streaming though. The other thing for me that I should say is that I can't really into synchronous stuff, so unfortunately I know that does kind of limit things. I do plan on recording the con again this year. At some point I need to verify that I have enough working setups + backups for however many streams there are this year. I would have liked to have been more active here and already have some con stuff in motion but I've been extremely busy these past few months (and likely will be still for the next week or so).

Last year at the end of the con they fucked it up and I don't want to recreate it.

There's likely to only be 2 streams, or possibly only one

I know I'm late to the party but personally I think IRC wouldn't be as bad because you can just pop into the channel and check it out with almost no effort. On discord
- you have to run the official client which is non-free software, the only alternative is a bootleg pirate client that discord tries their hardest to ban and stamp out
- you have to connect to the official servers, which are ran in an extremely shady way; compare rizon or freenode or Twifag could even trivially host his own IRC server, but with discord this is not possible
- you have to have an account; some chats can be set to let people read them without signing it, but you must always sign in to say anything, as far as I'm aware; on IRC you can join with any nick and just start talking
- creating an account is a painful process, requiring either a) a Good Goy email address, or b) a phone number. On IRC, even if you want to register your nick, literally all you need is to set a password.

All these measures make discord such an unpleasant experience that it's basically only used by people who have already bought into the system, ergo, discordfags/discord trannies. This contributes to the separation and hence rising tension, as the discord trannies defend their choice with "it's so convenient!" and everyone who hasn't yet sold their soul is sitting outside in revulsion. Meanwhile, if it was an IRC server, anyone could always just pop in to take a glance or say something if they wanted.
Sure there could still be circlejerking and drama on IRC, but at least there wouldn't be the clearcut divide and resulting polarisation between "discord trannies" and "everyone else".

Ah you meant Opensource Free-ware. Technically discord should count as Freeware, since you don't have to really pay the subscription, but you can't modify it. Not all freeware stuff is allowed to be modified by users
>>
>>36962295
>Opensource
Open source is not free software, though the concept is related. It's possible to have non-free open source software - for instance, if the source is made public, but a license is not granted to modify the software.
>Free-ware
"Freeware" is a completely unrelated concept that has nothing to do with free software. In fact, "freeware" usually refers to proprietary, non-free software that can be acquired without paying.

You're confusing "free as in beer" and "free as in freedom". When people talk about "free software" they mean the latter 99% of the time, not about freeware.

IRC users and server operators also seem more privacy-aware in general. I have a friend who's on Freenode staff and he talks sometimes about problems they have with moderation and anti-spam due to not keeping any logs (not even public channels are logged server-side).

Also I think it helps that IRC is a bit less user-friendly than Discord. Normies and casuals who just want to join so they can feel included are less likely to put up with IRC clients and their quirks (even web clients still have issues).

>>36962304
Since we're being pedantic
>It's possible to have non-free open source software - for instance, if the source is made public, but a license is not granted to modify the software
If you're not permitted to modify the software, then it's not "open source" according to the Open Source Definition
https://opensource.org/docs/definition.php
>3. Derived Works
>The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of the original software.
What you're describing is called "shared source" or "source available".

What's best for organize something: a program where you can directly talk to the guy doing what you asked, where you can post progress and codes and shit and are not restrained by any global rules, or an image board where the timing for discussion is limited, super slow and once the post number is reached, you have to make a new thread?

Even Reddit would be a better place for planning the con than an ANONYMOUS imageboard. At least on Reddit you can tell who is taking to who and the site is more robust than this forum from 20 years ago. I can't imagine how annoying using this site daily must be. But no, having to solve a fucking captcha every time is better than registering on Discord.

Alright, these are all good points.
Thanks for the explanation, Anon. I now understand the difference between the two chat systems and why one is more preferred than the other.
Though having said that...
What would it take to create an IRC for the /mlp/ con and would it even been a good idea?

For hashing out schedules and such, probably, but only if the organisers actually use it. Personally I don't exactly have hope it would get used for anything at all.

>all conversations about projects, and organization should be done on the board itself.
In reality, nobody is doing this, as you can see from this thread. The reason is that it would be a huge pain in the ass. For projects like this you really need to be able to (1) contact a specific person and be sure they'll get your message and (2) manage multiple discussions on different topics happening in parallel. #2 is possible on the board, but the design of the site doesn't really help with that, at least not when all discussion has to stay within a single thread. And #1 is basically impossible with any level of reliability. Honestly the best choice for this is probably email, though from what I've seen, Zulip might work okay as an alternative.

The main benefit of keeping it on the board is that it excludes the sort of people who hang out in "/mlp/" discords and still think of themselves as "channers" despite not having visited the board in years. I think a better way to manage that would be to set a hard requirement that all panels must be discussed in the thread and have at least some positive response in order to be accepted.

but we already have a matrix
>>
>>36963327
Matrix is much better than discord (at least it's FLOSS) but it still loses out to IRC.
- much more limited client choice, almost everything is half-baked alpha state except the single official one which is electronshit
- identity servers are a pain; I don't remember if you HAVE to use one or if you can operate on a UUID like you can on e.g. jami, but I do remember the official client doesn't make it at all clear that you can do anything except log in to the official central server
These two things make it that it goes from "open a browser client or launch a lightweight CLI client and start chatting" to "use the official client, make an account of the official server, log in, and you can start chatting". It's FLOSS and it doesn't ask for a phone number, but it's still less convenient than IRC, and thus creates more separation between the thread and the chat (which is bad for a chat that's supposed to be attached to, and supplement, the thread).

Just wanted to drop another post in case anyone has any ideas or suggestions for my two-hour writefag panel. I am open to reading your short (very short) prose stories as I timed my speaking and it's about 7 or 8 minutes per thousand words. Most of the stuff in the Featured box on FIM is 4 or 5k or more words, meaning it'd take up a quarter of the panel reading one story. So I'm looking for nice, concise, shorter stories to highlight particular genres.

For example, one for Adventure, one for Horror, etc. It can be complete garbage, the point is it fits the genre and I can use it to discuss that genre and what works / what doesn't.

Don't forget I am also dedicating at least 30 minutes to greentexts. I don't believe much has to be said that doesn't also apply to prose other than

>obvious formatting differences

so most of the time can be spent reading board-chosen greentexts. We're getting pretty close so, if everyone wants to start offering their pick for greentexts to read, let me know. Thanks.

Identity servers are only for attaching an email/phone number to your account, or for looking people up by email/phone. 100% optional

You're totally right on the clients, though. I wish there was just ONE (1) decent terminal client out there somewhere. (Maybe there is now - last time I looked was a year or two ago)
>>
>>36963504
>Most of the stuff in the Featured box on FIM is 4 or 5k or more words
Fimfic lets you filter by word count
https://www.fimfiction.net/stories?q=words%3A%3C2500+status%3Acomplete+%23horror&order=top

>For example, one for Adventure, one for Horror, etc
Legit adventure fics tend to be on the longer side, much longer than what you're looking for. Maybe you could read a random chapter out of a longer fic? I say "random chapter" instead of "first chapter" since usually the first chapter is just setting up the scene and motivation with not much actual adventuring going on.

>It can be complete garbage
Well, okay. But if you'd prefer actual goodfics, /fimfic/ can probably recommend you a bunch that fit whatever criteria you care to name
>>36957562
>>
>>36962614
Also discord, since it's there too.
>>
>>36963504
I'm no writefag but prose and greentext have a very different feel to them. Greentexts are typically relying on dialogues and character's thoughts to tell a story from a particular point of view. Regardless of how long they are, good greens have to feel "fast" and easy to understand.

Prose can achieve the same effect too but it can also feature long paragraphs of descriptions that build the atmosphere without really progressing the story. I've seen people try to do the latter in their greentexts and most of the time it ends up with the readers losing interest before any action happens. People need to stop trying to write a second Lord of the Rings or Background Pony on 4chan. If there's no dialogue in the first 100 words of your greentext, you should probably reformat it as a one-shot story.
>>
>>36963633
Yeah, I prefer to write my greentexts in a more “casual” way relying on narrative voice more than descriptive passages, I just think it flows a lot better with the format. I remember back in the day prose was a lot more common on /mlp/, and it’s a shame that everyone just defaults to greentext format these days. With some stories I think prose is a better fit.

Yes, one of the most well known and respected ones. In my opinion the best pony fimfic ever written and the only one I semi-regularly recommend it to my normie friends. For what it's worth, Boston University even put it on their 2018 reading list. You probably recognize pictures of Lyra in a black hoodie like pic related. That depiction originated from this fanfic.
It's greatest strength is also the reason some people don't like it. The pace is anything but fast, and almost everything is amply decorated with adjectives, metaphors and long descriptions. Some people (the ones with awful taste, obviously) claim that it's an example of purple prose.
