2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.
>What is a 'Satyr Abomination' thread about? A satyr is what happens when a human and a pony decide to get freaky and end up having a child. The top half is mostly human, the bottom is from pony mom (or pony dad). This thread is dedicated to the art and written works about these lovable creatures. >What about other species? The show had quite a few different intelligent species by season 8, 'everycreature' and all. Pick your poison, but /mlp/ is mainly into ponies. >What is the world/characters/personalities & attributes? The most common setting is one or multiple Anons in Equestria. Most of the established characters are in the list below, the personalities mostly vary from green to green. Just ask the thread about common headcanons.
Writefag makes Anon the only really prominent character and all the girls are just their regular selves with the usual canon characterization for each one, who mostly exist to add to Anon's presence as the main character and the prompt itself if the story is based on one. Like, there is nothing interesting happening if you take Anon away, barely anything interesting can happen because the other girls are just sort of there, existing in the story and doing things that just pertain to Anon's story. Funny because that's some of the gripes about Glimmer. It's like writefags now are hyperfocused on "guys, look how deep and developed Anon is" "Anon is great, Anon is amazing" while these same guys say that Anon is ultimately meant for self-insert, which says a LOT about these writefags themselves. I like greens that focus on the canon characters and having them interacting and have the action and development. And not 70-90% Anon this, Anon that, Anon Anon Anon. It'd be totally fine if some threads didn't become so oversaturated with it. It really shouldn't be rare to have a green where you can take Anon away and still have a very interesting story, but it's starting to seem this way. I feel like most writefags are scraping the bottom of the barrel with other characters and now want to make Anon himself more interesting instead. Most greentext is almost always supposed to involve him; and of course Anon is snarky and sarcastic cause I need to be told how stupid everything is for the hundredth time and how "above it all" Anon is suppose to be--at least until the sex scenes.
>What is this thread about? This thread revolves around stories about ponies being enslaved.
>Can you elaborate more? Sure! SPG (Slave Pony General) is mostly about characters dealing with the actual implications of the horrifying thing that is chattel slavery. It's more looking at how people with modern sensibilities deal with the ownership of another sentient being, and how most people aren't total cunts.
