So I got one of those PMs from Sunshine, and I asked him to clarify, the conversation went as follows:
I don't have my reply saved, but basically I asked why this was coming down now. Was it bandwidth related? Why the sudden moderation of the pony thread to strictly ponies when it's basically been an off topic chat thread for so long? If it was bandwidth related, couldn't we just post those things as links and not embed them? This is the reply I got:Originally Posted by Sunshine
I'm still not sure of the extent of things that are considered off-topic, (Is it all posts? Just media posts? From this it seems like all posts, due to the fact that Sunshine said it wasn't bandwidth related.) but this is unfortunate, at least from my point of view, being as most of the stuff posted here no longer has anything to do with ponies.Originally Posted by Sunshine
To anyone who missed my ninja last post on page
I downloaded both pictures, enlarged Naro's to 2660, trimmed the transparency from both then overlaid them with a difference filter.
A blurry vector that uses the exact same frame as one done several months ago which when enlarged matches the "new" one like that... right.
Would match perfectly if I knew by how many pixels high he stretched it (closer the lines get to vertical the more the outlines disappear)
We don't want pages and pages and pages of memes, random images, etc. One once in a while, especially if it has some sort of relevancy is ok, but Sunshine wants us to cut back dramatically on it, and move more to actual discussion, pony related and otherwise. Obviously we can't sit here and discuss ponies 100000% of the time, so I believe that's fine. It's just the image posting has gotten out of hand lately, especially considering there are specifically other threads for that sort of thing.
I might be wrong, so it would be best to PM her.
