Welcome to /pone/! Or as we often call ourselves to differentiate from 8chan/8kun's /pone/ board, /endpone/. The pony board at the end of the known universe. This board is a bit different from most other pony boards on the internet and has generally composed of a tight knit group 2 to 3 core users. Though we welcome any old stragglers who come by. It can be a bit creepy so far out but our bat ponies and bridges can be pretty friendly once you get to know them. Maybe you can find a home here too?

Our rules: https://endchan.net/pone/rules.html

Somethings to keep in mind:
1 Follow the rules of Endchan. Don't do anything illegal.
2 This board has been in practice more SFW oriented, but NSFW has never been explicitly banned. Do to difference in taste and people's definitions of what counts as overly grotesque, a general spoiler rule has been put in place in all threads with the exception our special NSFW thread.
3 This board is not /mlp/, 8/pone, /mlpol/ or Ponychan. Not saying this board is the most unique or wonderful place in the world but a posting style and a limited culture has arisen that is distinct from those models and is arguably in sometimes in contrast. Expect sometimes long meandering discussions jumping randomly from topic to topic and experimental projects of various levels of merit. We also recognize that board culture is not finite and could easily evolve with what any new anon or two could bring something to the table that could alter things significantly. Just don't bring in a mentality of endless low quality threads and shitposting like glimmmmmer! to X is cucked. It would ruin the board and will not be tolerated.

/go/ - Golden Oaks General Anon 01/07/2019 (Mon) 06:02:52 [Preview] No. 3148 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Welcome to Golden Oaks! Sit back and get /confy/ and dive into the vast amounts of data across the web that has been generated by the MLP fandom.

What is Golden Oaks?
Golden Oaks isn't quite sure exactly how to define itself yet. It is devoted to a rather nebulous topic of the fandom itself with an archival mindset. It will vary from as diverse subjects as academic research done on the fandom to even the discussion of old dead pony memes and trends past and present. With perhaps some self reflection as well.

What is Golden Oaks not?
Golden Oaks is not for the simple dissuasion of the latest scandal within the fandom or gossip about X. These subjects maybe relevant at times in the discussion of certain happenings and periods within the fandom, but the thread itself shouldn't dive into drama without reason.

What is this place?
This is the endchan's pony board. While we are microscopic we have regular posting and a somewhat distinct culture as can be with 3 anons and the occasional drifter . /go/ welcomes outside contributions. Feel free to look around.

>Alright I'm back. I was without internet for the past (almost) month, due to unexpected house repairs, so I could not do much but i am happy that the script got fixed/remade and so much was done.

with no internet for almost an entire month? That must have been an utter annoyance. Yeah, the script was literally last week (I think that it was fixed on Saturday if I am not wrong) and thus, there has been very little time to use the fixed version but it´s better late than never.

>I would love to say that I have some comments too but the little I had was in local NewPipe playlist on my phone which got bricked (literally) during the painfully long reconstruction and if recovering wont work I probably wont have much to bring.

well, at least you have that and you have appeared just in time for the ending of this whole project and you have contributed slightly for it.That counts a lot. Also, one appreciates the loyalty displayed with the board. Many other people on other altchans would have abandoned this place because of the lack of activity. If you want to feel better, you have already contributed more than me.

>I can't even express how happy am I that you got this far with this, keep it up. There's still few hours left
THIS!

Also: Bridgefag, his mutual partner and/or any other lurker who is working on this emergent task and is reading this reply: don´t focus on anything else.

Speed up the downloads until there is no more time left.

After that, you can post and comment about anything related to this or long/blog/shitpost or whatever you desire about any other topic. In the meantime,just post about something strictly necessary that is related to technical issues (although with the fixed yt downloader, there isn´t much to talk here other than updates on what you have already archived) and even then, /mlp/ is more useful in this regard for a faster communication among more users.

Hello and sorry for slow reply. I've been mainly looking on the /mlp/ thread and finally saw what appears to be someone from here.

Here are a couple scripts I've used on videos:
api_video_info.py is for getting the video metadata.
api_video_comments.py is for getting the video's comments.
common.py contains code shared by the other scripts.

Run it as such:
api_video_info.py -i videos.txt -d ./videos
api_video_comments.py -i videos.txt -d ./videos
-i flag is input file with videoIds (not full url). -d flag is relative directory to save to.
Any errors returned by the api goes to error.log.

I intended to have an --archive option similar to youtube-dl but we're short on time right now and I code very slow. Also there's at least one other thing I could've done to speed up the comments script but I'll have to implement that at a later date.

common.py also contains what appears to be the universal api key for youtube. Everyone running the scripts in /mlp/ have been using it without any problems, but I'd still suggest not hammering it too hard, especially for comments as it makes *a lot* of api calls when there are a lot of comments with replies.

We did what we could. I will post further updates in about a day or two along with a few selected videos and everything else.

Not Much Activity in /Endpone/

Comos has sure taken the fandom for a wild ride; though chaos can be exciting, it is also tiring. So why not let harmony reign for awhile?

After all, we maybe at the end of the universe, but sometimes that can be better than the center of the storm.

For a good reason and even without the expansion of the top with 15 available spots to fill.

If we take into account that you (Bridgefag) have left 4-5 posts on several threads last night, your mutual partner (Mr YT comments) left his mark as well on the /go/ thread, CB anon also replied on his webm thread and I left a PoLS on the /seapone/ general,the admin making his appearance (maybe debut) on this board and the three posts over here...

all of that adds up and legitimately to the counter, /endpone/ got into the top 10 (I am posting the position where it is placed right now:11th) but I have a screencap where Bridgefag had just left and the board ranked at 8th place.

Yeah, this board can look like your average corpse that apparently won´t get any peak and all of a sudden, you reunite a little bit of activity as soon as the main users and a couple of lurkers begin to synchronize their posts...et voila, the Equestrian board takes its own seat at the /end/ of the universe all over again.

This is why I repeatedly claim that there are way more states of death than one might think at first glance...
Whenever someone else claims that X board is dying, perhaps that person should take a look at this case. I swear that I would love to see the reaction from doomsayers of that kind.

>we decided to give exposure less used boards, so raised the number to 15
heh, /endpone/ has always stayed as one of those secondary boards that silently creep in near the top 10 but barely manages to make the cut.

>Since so few peeps post on End, it's not too hard to get onto the top list, or jump a couple places up.
/endpone/ has also taken advantages of those server failures. I have a couple of screencaps where /endpone/ became the most popular board because Bridgefag and I replied right after the maintenance and during the first 24 hours, other boards wouldn´t register their activity and surpass the numbers of this board.

I am not going to say that one needs an organized raid but as soon as one gets to feel like leaving any post because another user (mainly the same 3-5 ""anons"") gets to reply, the other feels encouraged to give it back. Yeah, 4chan has historically taken steps for rejecting MLP but here you are giving /endpone/ the spotlight. I´ll let you jump onto your own conclusions with this observation...

Maybe it´s because we are either living in the 2020s or it is because you want to boost a competition among the boards for the top. Or maybe the staff wants us to keep Odilitime a little bit entertained with this battle so he wouldn´t feel so bored. I am making bold implications here...

Not sure if /endpone/ was the only board taht cared about the top 10 though...

Right,I am writing this post on mobile because I took this screen capture exactly 10 hours ago and /endpone/ got into the 8th place in a legitimate way.

No edits here,except for cutting the last 5 places for this pic because I expanded the top too much. I cannot change the thumbnails on my mobile (I would have to do it with a copy of it on the PC),just in case that anyone wants to take me as a liar.

CB, this is Bridgefag. I have no intention to leave or abandon this board. I was actually just getting ready to make a couple of announcements but got preoccupied with the saving of pony pictures. Not the most major stuff but a... update of shorts, so don't fear on that front and stay tuned.

>Also you guys are my only friends
Not going to abandon you over COVID! Though I am not sure I share the same level of skepticism on the vaccines I find the efforts mobilized... creepy if I am being honest.

>r calling those with four-chins sub-pony filth who no longer speak Ponish.
4chan bans anthro pretty agressively so it is probably the former though I know you could have easily gotten hounded there depending on what thread you stumbled on.

>I'm angry, sick (still) and tired.
I wish and praying unironically for your health and well being.

Goodnight for now, /endpone/.

/Webm/ animational end of Friendship.

This is to consolidate all the great animations, PMVs, animatics the fandom made that you keep going back to appreciate.
It's also to encourage some folder dumps because we're bound to not have all the same ones.

No need to be codec or carrier centric; mkvs and mp4s are fine too.
Since the End didn't like the 20MB encoding of whatever animation I've renamed to 'uppity pegasi' (what're they up to, up there?), I've recompressed it and include it here as the first of ... a fair number of files.

well, I have been thinking about it and for now, I am not going to dive into it yet. There is no need to do so for now and I have to wait for those who are archiving stuff on /mlp/ (the most important project that the fanbase has accidentally encountered in 2021)

Besides, unleashing a whole outburst of posts so abruptly might not pay off if it doesn´t get to have any momentum in practice. I will have to wait for the right moment to occur because one cannot display such relentless force so often.

As for the new thread, I have been planning about a couple of ideas that could turn out to be pretty cool but I need to prepare a very specific gallery for it.

PD: there was a short moment in which /endpone/ entered into the top 15 all over again earlier today so, even with this bunch of posts, the board can actually get at the top of the boardlist.

Well, I did just recover from what a relative insists is the "delta variant"

Also you guys are my only friends because my coworkers have taken the death-shot and don't understand why I haven't followed just because there's no isolate of the suggested pathogen but there is 9,000+ deaths known to be caused by the "cure" and 111K "break-thru" cases where the "vaccine" did exactly nothing, as predicted by many.

Also I like depressing music sometimes. Not so much in this mix, though. Pretty eclectic selection of musicals with an operatic reference.

Have you ever craved the feeling of a warm fire while snuggled under a blanket? Possibly with hot cocoa? From idyllic scenes of a cozy log cabin or even something as simple as spending time on the computer with your favorite snack while surfing the web till the wee hours of the morning the feeling of /comfy/, homely experiences and simple pleasures, is one we all can enjoy.

However... have you ever wanted those things while underwater?

If so, then /Seapone/ is for you! /Seapone/ is /endpone/'s thread dedicated to Seaponies and secondarily aquatic themes and creatures of Equestria at large with a slight twist: the sea as a homely and /comfy/ place. /Seapone/ will not turn away other themes or concepts but by and large this thread aims to be a celebration of the softer and gentler side to what lies beneath the ocean depths and what better way to do so then with Seaponies? Especially Gen 4's take on them?

Sit back. Relax and take your shoes off. And dive in to the ocean depths. It's Seapony posting time!

>Though I prefer them with a a talefin to being fully four legged.

this. Even though, I had a period where I had considered that these species should have 4 legs and long tail. After getting so used to the 2017 design, the two front hooves work nicely and the huge tale fin makes them look curvier and aesthetic.

The tail gains so much prominence design-wise that the artist has some room for creativity and thus, one can end up with cool concepts such as the glowing tail that reflects the light as if you were looking at the moon itself (the shape of the crescent moon makes it even more unique; hence that seapony Luna image introduces a design that you cannot apply on any other form).

There is a reason why they can end looking so appealing: the transformation can look very organic and display the same amount of charm as the original one.

>and it seems like their was one later incident where we lost some images on a smaller scale
one week later...
it seems that no apparent disasters/consequences have popped up from it yet. Nonetheless...

>So we maybe diving in the darkness for a bit and Sharkpony Luna can't protect us.
...we have always been living in the darkness. You are implying that she isn´t going to transform into NMM either, which is a tiny bit foolish to assume that nothing wrong can happen by trusting on her all the time. It was the darkness either from the land, the sea or outer space. I don´t think that any other option would take us to any better position either. I guess that the darkness from the depths takes a more natural transition than any other place so, you aren´t going to find any abrupt lightning anyway.

I certainly didn´t imagine that a secondary species would inspire other artists to recreate the works from each other. Sure, you may have seen this practice plenty of times throughout the whole decade but when it comes to one of the most recent additions to the franchise, you would imply that the first image couldn´t create anything worth sharing in public (that is to say, material that is meant to be edited and post it on the other thread).

However, it feels truly satisfying to see how an amateurish Skystar picture can turn into it a high quality image, getting featured on EQD overnight.

Don't worry,the queen isn't going to treat us badly...or maybe I am wrong,who knows what she is going to do with her orb.

Anyway,I've got quite a few pics to share for this thread and eventually comment about my misadventures that I have stumbled upon on Deviantart and the uploads.

that gesture of changing the status is certainly endearing to hear and it fits better for the contributions that he has delivered so far tbh. Honestly, I didn´t know how to tag him so I came up with that provisional term (even though the reception of your term depends on him entirely)

>Yay! Hopefully I can finally be more active too.
well,keep in mind that you have been dealing with technical issues (the new PC and problems with the downloader), it´s understandable why you have been focusing on that project and all those changes in order to adjust it according to your taste/preferences. I cannot predict how active this board will be but for sure, I think that certain fans deserve the medal of loyalty.

No other imageboard can be so wildly consistent in its active inconsistency (especially when it comes to the Endchan servers that Odilitime hasn´t fixed yet. We might enter into the 22nd century with futuristic advanced technology and Endchan surely won´t have stable servers nor an archive for past threads). I attempted to leave a reply over here and the servers failed yesterday...and here I am, reformulating the post all over again tonight. Great...

>How do you know that one is him? What if it is a different anon?
https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/endchan.net

I mean, I have made mistakes before at trying to predict who is who but considering the alexa stats, Endchan doesn´t have a huge influx of people to be precise.
Besides, if we take into account that MLP is a very specific franchise, the numbers are even more reduced than the ones with a generic appeal.
You have to keep in mind that I have been used to seeing the posts of the most active user around here and I could certainly have an idea who is posting (according to several factors/patterns that one takes into account after a certain period of lurking).

I remember a Polish anon on /flutter/ stating that one gets to know the users of the whole board when there are less than 10 active users. Of course,this could be easily solved by introducing the ID feature and leave no room for mistakes in this guessing game.

I've just had an epiphany
Diplomacy, but with Equine units.

Right now, Diplomacy even with fantasy maps or the like, have only army units or ships. But with unicorns and pegasi, the rules would have to be expanded.

So, having never played but the rules seem straight-forward enough, I think it would have to be like this:
Earth ponies (or Zebra) -- standard army. One unit per zone ("country" in traditional Diplomacy), one new unit created in the Spring turn if that's possible, can only move one country per turn (with an exception I have in mind)
Pegasi armies -- can travel two zones per turn, and can fly over unicorn or earth armies without interference, but will be blockaded by an intervening air army.
Armadas -- Also produced once in the Spring, but are limited to water zones. This is the exception I had in mind. I'm picturing a river splitting the map in half. Each section of the river is the same length as surrounding land zones. Armadas can attack or support an attack from their beaches but cannot occupy them. The river could be forded by land armies; essentially they just ignore it. But an opposing armada could blockade travel.
Unicorns -- A college geared toward war-training unicorn ponies would produce one army every spring. But they could not invade, only support or blockade. They also could only move one zone per turn, with the exception of that river crossing.
Batponies -- The mountains of the north, I guess, would produce one unit of batponies every spring. By default at creation they would act like pegasi BUT could spend a turn reconfiguring their make-up, and at the end of that turn would be as declared: either a water-based armada (I'm picturing cajun swamp barges, but instead of a fan, there's a bat at the back flapping his/her wings like Scootaloo does for her scooter, with either a unicorn or spear-toting batpony at the front of each barge) or to become a land unit.
The advantage of becoming a land unit is, I was thinking of allowing zones to permit multiple armies so long as they were in a different "place"; pegasi sleeping in the clouds, Earth armies on the ground, and if there's a beach, water units stay in the nearby river.

Next up I was considering including two methods of granting longer travel. One would be Appleloosa's food convoy. Once in the Fall turn that zone would create for the current owner, an "army" of food. It would be ground-bound but could occupy the same zone as an actual army.
If the owners of the food-army and battle-army are different, the owner of the food would have to declare an order to gift the food to the battle army.
Once eaten, the food-army would be "disbanded" and the next turn that army could travel two zones.
The second way, would be that owners of flight-producers could, in the Winter turn, declare an order to produce a convoy. So instead of batponies or pegasi, that zone would create one non-combatant (non occuying / non-blockading) flier. This army could merge with a ground army. If the owner of the ground army is different, both would have to declare their order to merge or the order would fail. Once merged, they would be like flying unicorns. Not able to attack, but could support an invasion, or just blockade against travel. But they could also move two zones, including bypassing hostile ground or water armies. If either owner, if they're different, orders a de-combining, the ground army will be dumped where the flight convoy was at that time.

I meant it as more of a status. I mean, I suppose one could say I am in "command" of /go/ and the current effort but he has been just a driving force and has put a fair bit of labor.

> I attempted to leave a reply over here and the servers failed yesterday...and here I am, reformulating the post all over again tonight. Great...
Had the same thing happen to me with a relatively long post. Anoying.

>>7703
This deserves a much longer reply but for now I will say,
>Diplomacy, but with Equine units.
I have often thought on a similar theme, even with my relative lack of experience with rules like this. Rationally, how could our little ponies and the rational implications of there world affect stories and be incorperated into gameplay? So much really get ignored or not thought of...

> (I'm picturing cajun swamp barges, but instead of a fan, there's a bat at the back flapping his/her wings like Scootaloo does for her scooter, with either a unicorn or spear-toting batpony at the front of each barge)

The thread of a personal project Anon L23 02/10/2018 (Sat) 06:06:53 [Preview] No. 656 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
>What is this thread about?
Talking about how it feels to be in the /end/. The darkest place where no one comes.
>What is this project about the so called end?
Difficult to know, but when no one is watching,you act differently. I have a project in mind about that aspect for this thread.
>How is it going to last?
Either very few posts (10 or so) or a very long one.
>Does it have any purpose?
Basically my thoughts about some things transferred into a pony body. Nothing that fits completely on character or my full personal attention to get "fame". Just a guide or vision I want to share in a grey place. Several threads have pointed them out but I especifically want to focus on something else inspired from those first posts.

Nothing is planned and I can't promise anything....

The Second Reunion (clip, ) Anon 06/17/2021 (Thu) 22:44:33 [Preview] No.7627 del
Well, this thread...I haven´t been capable to deliver any activity and as anyone would tell, it shows that Bridgefag and I were unexpectedly running this board (even though the polish BO owned /endpone/ behind the scenes). The levels of insecurity were quite high and the sheer audacity I had for opening this thread could have backfired badly and we could have ended it up here.Nowadays, I wouldn´t have opened a thread of this kind in such a reckless manner where I would type a personal blog that could be a target for anyone to complain about my views. I consider myself fortunate to not have been the case for it, considering the nature of this format. Huge respect to those who have been lurking and waiting for me so I could naturally develop this thread.

I guess that the best thing that could have happened to this thread was the transition from starting it as an opinion about the evolution of this fanbase to stories/short fics that would enrich the content displayed over here. Today, I want to deliver something small after so much time of inactivity.

The clip I am sharing here shows the same style as this one >>5391. It is (or was) meant to be used as an announcement for the sequel of >>5439 called The Second Reunion, settled right after the events of The Second Chance. However, I only managed to make this clip and write the whole scheme of events for the story (2-3 pages). This idea was planned amidst the spring confinement (during late April) but I never truly trusted on what I was thinking about at the time.

While I have always had the idea how the story should go as a whole, I never put myself into it because I would need to keep up with the level of writing that I had shown in the last fic and later on, I would run into many problems that would hinder my mental/emotional stability. When I wrote The Second Chance, everything had been more or less kept in an apparent solid line, personally speaking. However, life is full of twists and this year has turned out to be more of a rollercoaster for me in general . Many aspects of my life have been changing throughout the last 11-12 months and I will need my time to go back to that state where I find myself at the same line (or better than) I was placed back in January 2020.

Does this mean that there won´t be any sequel? A sequel cannot be discarded at all but I truly wonder how it will turn out in terms of quality (if I properly get into it at all)

I wanted to prove that this thread could get a little bit of life. One cannot close the door to anything and thus, I want to leave it slightly open, just in case...

At the time, we were the only folks here. I understand both refraining opening a thread like this now and opening a thread like this back then, still it is great how it got to evovle.

>This idea was planned amidst the spring confinement (during late April)
2020 I presume?

Quality versus letting the emotion flow, plus life stuff putting a damper upon it. I can completely understand that. I mean, coming from someone who has several incomplete fics sitting for here, stuff can get in the way.

I think perfectionism should not alone dampen any spark of creativity you have. A worry of performance can only paralyze you,

indeed. I could have become the laughing stock and an easy target for any reply that could shatter the whole thing completely (the first 10 replies). I realized that when I posted on a precarious mobile phone in the morning, I envisioned that the worst things could have popped up over here. If I had had an account on social media, I could have become the public idiot of my persona (which would have been even worse)

It was a strange dynamic in which I had thought that there were more people participating who could have got involved but in reality, I was writing to the same person after all and I was imagining mirages that weren´t actually here. I didn´t even dare to see your replies at the time and it cost me months to even face them.

It felt like opening a can of worms, even though throughout the show discussion threads I have displayed the same points but with a more fleshed out laid -back approach (thus, these same points feel more digestible and less harsh). At the time, this felt as if I were breaking a barrier that I wasn´t meant to break and it could have gone horribly wrong. I deeply appreciate that it didn´t happen to be that way and in the end, I realize for myself what I wrote and how this "project" (initially a blogpost) could be solved with a different direction and sustain it with other mediums.

And here we are: same place, same tone but with a different perspective...

>2020 I presume?
yep. The greatest amount of time in which I got to think about it was during the confinement. /endpone/ served me as a bubble to disconnect from the pandemic and forget about the fact that I wouldn´t be able to get out of the flat for two months unless that I went shopping for basic stuff. Draconian measures that could have driven me crazy and the fear was strong and intense during the first wave around here. Fortunately enough, I didn´t transmit those vibes over here for the most part.

I am one of those who doesn´t like incomplete things. Once I start doing something, I prefer ending it completely and move onto something else. There is something quite dangerous about writing with emotions because one should regulate them and place those intentions with much more balance. There are always temptations to put your hands on it and then, regret it later.

There are also a few problems with this story: I actually don´t know the characters. Seriously, I have to read the story all over again and learn what I have written and what are the actual traits that you can extract from them as if I were a random reader instead of approaching them as the author, hence a 2nd part that feels organic without deviating them from their traits looks complicated.

I am not all that familiar with getting a character with the exact same traits all the time. That is to say, I could make them sound out of character out of nowhere because of the lack of knowledge related to their behaviors displayed on the story and cause a huge mess for those people who hold the character development as their main preference.

Regardless of what I say, thanks for displaying empathy here.

>I think perfectionism should not alone dampen any spark of creativity you have. A worry of performance can only paralyze you
yeah...but I wasn´t meant to take any responsibilities on creating fan stuff anyway. I don´t consider myself a writer or content creator...mostly because I don´t want to promise anything beforehand. I just wanted to bring a sense of openness for continuing this story but that doesn´t mean that it needs a sequel desperately.

I have admitted many times that what I deliver and people call ""creative"" is just a bunch of pieces that are simply put together and I simply try to make them seem organic, as if they were meant to fit in this context. Nothing else. If the story has managed to feel as an organic MLP story with all the inspirations that I have decided to gather for it, then that´s a success in my eyes.

My first thought of this was me and a bunch of cardboard cut outs Though BO was there... watching us

A lot of things can come down to tone and presentation. Two people can make totally the same point and the meaning be lost with one.

>. /endpone/ served me as a bubble to disconnect from the pandemic and forget about the fact that I wouldn´t be able to get out of the flat for two months unless that I went shopping for basic stuff
/endpone/ was for me two in a way, a outlet, a distraction and in a odd sort of way, a shelter. Not just during this, but also before, for my own various IRL stuff like the death of my grandparents

>And here we are: same place, same tone but with a different perspective...
It's creepy how my life was completely different when this was first wrote, and yours too. Different perspective indeed.
