It was a bit of a necessary rehash.

Again, what are you planning to do to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve? What you say might be true and I'll agree to some of them, but have your words or anybody's here helped in the mods' intervention, past and present, with the ponies and the links and the whatever were messed with? You already know the answer to that.

For me personally, I see no point in getting too too worked up about this, and this is from the guy who actually spend some real green for some of the users up in here. After getting a bit more perspective, I see it as an opportunity to change things up and see if I can be a bit more creative in a tighter space. It looks like an interesting challenge to merit a try at this stage.

If you can think of a great move, a silver bullet, I'll be more than happy to support you. Though, getting madder and madder and pisser and pisser isn't going to help this case any better as-is.

To me, you're like this forum's QB, but there's a lot of time when the team's losing so bad that people become unmotivated, and desperate, and just plain stop listening to their QB, so as the WR I am, let me support my QB:

Open Letter for everyone:
Seriously, people, what's wrong with you? Look, I dislike the new rules too, because they limit the creativity and the comedy range people can achieve in their stuff. They also narrow the topics we can cover in conversations, but we don't actually need that stuff.
It's not only that complaining isn't going to do anything, it's that it saddens me that you believe that if we can't post suggestive images or ponies this forum goes to hell. If anything, look at it as a challenge just as zenny said and try something you're not used to, it might be more fun to have your options limited. Suggestive images were an easy escape to not thinking through a good joke or actual motivational something, I know because I did it too, and I'd love to see someone stand up and say I don't know what motting here is.
Also, sex jokes and curses are the cheapest comedy resources, they're useful and they're gold if you know how to use it, but the zenith (get it? LOL) of comedy is making people laugh without the need of them. I'm saying this because if you're complaining about what you can and not do in your mots, that's like complaining because you ascended to a better league and it's too hard, and that doesn't make any sense.
Here's an idea: try taking a completely innocent image and make it dirty with the text, but it has to be subtle, much like the MLP "The punch has been spiked" joke. Seriously, watch any Children's movie you want and it's full of those kind of jokes, damn, Shrek is even dirtier and suggestive than whatever we have posted here and it's still for kids.

Now, personally, I don't think anybody here likes ponies more than I do, I've made 13 people watch the show as of now, 6 of them were women, and none were under 20, I have a Rainbow Dash giant piñata, and go out with a Rainbow Dash T-shirt, I know in my birthday I'm gonna get like 4 Rainbow Dash plushies because everybody knows I like the show. Still, I don't care if I can't post ponies here, I can be just fine with it, and carry on with the same thing I was doing before I even knew the show existed. I've been here more time without ponies than with them.

So just look at yourself, and think what is this place for you, if you keep mad at it, you're either here for the wrong reasons, or you never really understood what we did here, but to me, I'm spending my very little free time here talking to you all for a reason, while I could be doing anything else, and that's the same for everybody else here, regardless of how much free time you have.

To sum up: Chill, take your time, and not just post whatever for the sake of posting

one last message I'd like to deliver:

Anything you do, do it with passion, or else don't do anything.

now returning to the usual hangs:

Why Didn't anyone tell me Chunibyo was THIS awesome? seriously, I just mindlessly love it.

Le sigh

Well, I gotta say it... the rules are a little too stringent and rope-to-neck for my liking. I know the mods are doing what their doctrine commands of them and I know they have to follow a specific guideline and I know that at this time, and times before, some of the regulars here are being generally dicky towards some of the rules (literally pushing for their posts to be deleted, half the time). It has caused way too much drama than this just for fun thread justifies, and neither side are easing the tension and are only making matters worse with each passing day.

I have called on the mods for leniency, I have called upon the users for less aggravation to the problem... none of it has been to any avail.

So, I guess it's time to just drop the hat, take my bow and leave before either the overly authoritarian mods or the aggressively aggravating users takes that much more drastic step. This ain't no whiney 'screw you guys, I'm leaving' bullcrap that a certain member did multiple times to gain attention, this is just me taking my leave and a warning to the times ahead: Sooner or later the noose will tighten, none of what you are doing is helping and you are only hastening its grip

Lately things have been slowly spiralling out of control in /AMP/. Had this been ANY other regular thread, it would have been locked forever long ago. We've been lenient with this thread & you guys for a while now, and it is time for a temporary lock-down because you guys clearly aren't listening to us any more.

Before I continue, let us pose the following question:

"Why would you do such a thing?!"


It is simple, because you guys are forgetting that this is Crunchyroll and not 4chan. Never was, never will be. I'm not interested in hearing your excuses, your actions speak louder than anything else.

Until recently there were only minor incidents not worth speaking of, AMPs where a user went a little over line. Such posts were reported because they were INAPPROPRIATE, and consequently dealt with by a moderator. Yet, this somehow creates a hostile environment where AMPers have started a "witch hunt" against those who actually care about following the rules.

Giving such users a nick name like "No-Name Sniper" REALLY doesn't help on your attitude. Because of that you've started developing this idea that you are justice and always right.


These past days you guys have really been pushing the limits; questioning the judgement of the moderators and posting lewd images while trying to create some poor excuse in defence of it. We all know why you post such images, because you are rebels without a cause.

"I don't believe you! Give us some examples!"


Posting images where a girl is clearly about to engage in sex with a guy that had a caption to the effect of "when you punch them in the clit they always explode" is NOT tolerable.

Pony images are still not approved of, because it is NOT anime in accordances with CR and ESPECIALLY this thread's rules! I know that in the past I said that as long as the posts were balanced, it was fine - but apparently if I give you 5cm you take 50 metres. So consider the "balancing" posts out of the picture, you had your chance and you wasted it.



Talking about butt sex in the captions is NOT OKAY.

Posting a lewd image of a trap (boy looking like a girl) showing his nipple is NOT okay. We know WHY you do it, and it is intolerable! When you post like that, you do it solely to provoke and rebel against us moderators. Ever heard of flame-baiting & trolling? Yeah.

Posting images where you make insinuations that we moderators hate originality because we are cracking down on the posts that break the rules is NOT okay. In addition, writing small paragraphs of insults directed towards us is amazingly enough unacceptable behaviour.

The rules clearly states that one shall respect a moderator's judgement, and if you still disagree you can always send a PM to a moderator and talk about it like civilized humans.


And finally, as the last nail in the coffin the following picture was moderated:


A picture of a girl wearing a shirt that said "fuck me" on it with an arrow pointing at her crotch


You guys really need to calm down.
That is why I'm locking this thread for ONE WEEK.

I swear, after this no one complain about modding, go on...those other sites if you want to post risky stuff. You know what they are.

Most of the times people were modded were due to legit-ly rulebreaking content. Just don't post it, is it really hard?

I don't want /AMP/ to have to be removed from my bookmarks guys.
