When the server started up, it was mostly intended to just be pony related stuff because, well, that was the server theme. However some people wanted to throw in some other things to the mix, and as long as people were enjoying it and it wasn't obnoxious, then it was fine. We haven't and DO NOT tolerate micspam that is obnoxious, repetitive loops, unintellible nonsense or screaming, inappropriate stuff, etc. The "not allowed" list is larger than the "ok" list in fact, so I'll specify out specifically what is okay below. Pre-ponies this server didn't even allow any micspam pony or not, besides random small clips (Oblivion related for example that I still use time to time).
What IS okay:
- Pony music
- Some non-pony music (e.g. various techno or classical is all right, I realize "obnoxious" is open to interpretation so this is the greyest area). Basically we don't want songs that are swearing or using racial slurs every other sentence.
- Short voice clips (pony is best but non pony is fine too, I myself have Oblivion things)
SHARING IS CARING
After you've played a song, you must relinquish the mic for another player to use. If you are just chiming in with short voice clips it's okay to jump over something else SPARINGLY for amusement. If you're doing this more than once a minute even, it's too much and we'll eat your soul. If you stop playing, and no one else jumps in for 15 seconds, you're welcome to take another turn. But if someone does want to jump in and they were just delayed (maybe they were busy ubering) then you should be friendly and let them play. Thankfully I think people already do a nice job here <3
I've also LOWERED the votemute threshold to 30%; so, please do use it as needed. (It was previously 50%).
While I realize what's "good" music wise is very open to interpretation, if you do things like loop 7 minute weeaboo songs you're going to get kicked/banned/and or perma muted. So don't do that. If you're playing actual stuff and people aren't fans, don't take it the wrong way, just stop and pick something else. The easiest way of course to not have issues here is to play some pony music. And some nice classical is never bad. Or Rush. I love Rush.
If you have comments/suggestions/complaints/ideas post and let us know.
And as always /report if there are issues with someone, and if someone gets multiple offense we'll just forcefully remove them from the server.
This may get updated on how things go so we may add/modify rules (though this should be pretty good..). If that happens I'll add a reply in here as well.
