Seriously, if /mlpol/ becomes its own entity, how will 4chan recover?
You've seen 4chan /pol/, right? It's 75% spam. It's gone already
Yeah, I still don't understand why the mods didn't keep this board
They made a big mistake imo
I dunoo about that. I guess that depends on what kind of 4chan do you have in mind. Young 4chan with blackhats residing on /b/, CP posted from time to time but overall strong community? At leats thats what I heard about how it used to be in its beginings.
Or do you mean current 4chan? You'd have to try pretty hard to fuck up that much...
I think /pol/ boards are incredible and deletion of 4/pol/ would be an cathartic act.
But I don't think they plan to do that...
In my personal opinion the Mods are actively hostile towards the /pol/ board. You get banned after 20 minutes for posting a pony in a thread at 4AM, so it's not like it's unmoderated. Yet almost all of the threads are the kind of spam that could be produced by a bot. If there were any board on all of 4chan that needs rigorous thread deletion for quality, it's /pol/. But the mods leave spam and shit posts (even if they do delete obvious shill threads sometimes), so they must just not care. Newfags there are too stupid not to respond to bait and spam, so it clutters the catalog
All we need is one major event to piss off /pol/ and we will have lots of refugees. Unfortunately it seems that /pol/ is just slowly being pushed into oblivion. Hopefully another /pol/ harbor happens soon.
I was thinking about 4chan of old. It doesn't have to get big right away, but I predict that with enough advertising it'll get steadily popular>>1579
Yeah, I'm not having fun with /pol/ anymore, it's so boring now
let's be honest, 4chan is doomed in general, mlpol however is a place of safety and love, where NatSoc and Libertarians come to mingle in peace with our MLP friends posting horse poon to keep out the normies, shills, etc.
4chan will devolve into a social network soon, mark my words
Well, you're more than welcome to stay here. True, the board is pretty slow, and the lack of GR15 means that sometimes the entire first page gets taken over by ponies for brief periods, but the OC is amazing, we do have good discussions, and spam is deleted within five minutes
Part of the reason /pol/ is dying is because of the mods and newfags. This board will live on because the mods are either from /mlp/ or /pol/ and both are used to being hated and ignored by the mods. So the mods here are actually good and try to keep shit from devolving into what our parent boards became.
Newfags won't last mostly because of the horse pussy but also because this board has a large amount of Nat socs. That is what kept normies off of /pol/ before but what killed /pol/ was lolbertrians being hostile towards the nat socs that were scaring off normies. I'd say that started around gg and has been accelerating ever since, where you now see threads on /pol/ where underage lolbertrians are actively hostile to us.
Needless to say I like this place a lot more and think its going to last. We just need a bit more traffic from true/pol/ diaspora and this place will be comfy as fuck.
btw the green text is just us bantzing at you, you're not banned <3
Yeah, another cuckening will do.
8ch already has their fair share of shitposts and shills.
We would probably be the first board they would go, or maybe another /pol/ board on 8ch.
This place just needs to not become a data mine or a side project to the people who run it
It's not I swear, our devs work tirelessly to ensure everything is secure and no info can be mined, we're working on a hashed IP system now that should be in place soon
as for it being a side project, well I made this place because I love it I remember /pol/ from the old days and what it's become now is an abomination, I'll never allow that to happen here, not tomorrow, not next month, not for a thousand years
I'm well aware of the steps taken by staff bb
I love this board; all it needs is a bit more activity, and it would be perfect.
That activity will only come if you're active
>>1574>how will 4chan recover?
It's because 4chan will never recover that we're branching off.
I'll make an effort to post more. I work full time though, and I assume a lot of anons do also. The board could undoubtedly benefit from more contributers.
Yep we're still a bit slow but give it some time and we'll hit the comfy stage where threads and moving along good.
The bad part about being a right-focused culture is most of us have gainful employment. Coupled with the amerocentric userbase means we still have dead hours. Fixing some of the privacy concerns (hashing IPs mainly) could drive traffic from countries where the content of the site is illegal
I'll burn the server to the ground before I allow it to be seized
Is there a way to advertise /mlpol/ on /pol/ without getting banned? This definitely needs the word to spread out
You and I both know there's no way to do that safely enough remotely. Be proactive, not reactive
we've been looking into it however talks with the mods on 4chan have resulted in simple replies somewhere along the line of "HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA" >>27037
if you want proactive, there are only two ways onto the server, encryption keys that are held only by myself and the headdev
the server itself has a killswitch which requires only that I send a signal to it, in the event of any form of disconnection from the net the server automatically reboots and the server is encrypted so any attempt to break it would require all the compute power that the US gov has at it's disposal for the next decade
What if we include the website in our name? Would that get us banned?
I can't imagine they would ever agree to let us advertise.
You know, there was once a pony ad on /pol/ promoting /mlp/.
Maybe we could find a more subtle way to tell people about this place without brining in nu/pol/
Yeah, there has to be a way we can make it into a signature of sorts
This is how 4chan feels about mlpol
We've been working on making OC that hints the website and doesn't get banned, but we still need more. We have an expert shitposter and image maker who hopefully will help us with that when he can>>1607
Thus far we've only been banned for ponies
Why not just buy an ad? Not that complicated. Spamming posts advertising your own board has been against the rules on 4chan since the good old days of an- on talk.
Also holy crap your server is slow.
what do you mean? no one else has complained about it being slow
All 4chan ads require staff approval. Not gonna happen outside of /mlp/
It might just be my internet connection but it feels like loading images and threads is much slower here.
Oh that varies. Usually it's very qucik. It has frozen to a snail's pace before
I'm on mobile in a metal box right now and have no problem m8
Provide me shop ammo in the rebuilding thread and I'll make maor thar. Wish Wish made the dreadnought merger one. That ones great
Yes after browsing a bit more it does seem more hit and miss than consistently slow.
that actually might be due to our archiver, we've been trying o make the archive work but so far it's just made everything slow down ._.
I have never noticed any slowdown.
Weren't you running it on chron before? Why not just run it on new thread creation? That's the only time you'll need to archive a thread
oh, um, well I didn't think about that
gimmie one second plz
You also don't need to arch the whole site, just threads that die off
That image was made by the regular Slovak poster
Da, saw him in the 40k thread I made. I'm jelly I didn't do it
I wouldn't mind it one bit if nu/pol/ just disappeared since shills have destroyed it to the point its unrecognizable. Shit the shills are also invading other boards on 4chan too like /k/ and others.
I hope this board does replace 4chan or at least /pol/. With good admins, mods, and ponies, I have a lot of hope for this board.
/k/ too? I noticed in /bant/ there are shill threads now. But I don't care for 4chan. I only go there to raid
I wouldn't want us giving 4chan money even if it meant this place staying a bit slower.
You gotta admit though, it would be funny as fuck to see /mlpol/ adds on 4chins
We can always just shill by spamming our shit their for free
It would be, but I can't stand gook. I mean, God help me, I almost wish that kike Milo had bought 4chan or something. At least he seems like he would have some fun. I mean, literally anyone who actually appreciate the idea of owning a website would be better than the jap.
It's still a mystery to me why I say "I mean" so much when I'm typing. I don't even do it when I speak. From now on, whenever so.eone sees me say "I mean, please correct me with shock images.
This website is too slow to topple 4chan, or at least become a "direct" competitor. It'd be nice to see that happen though. At this rate, 4chan is practically Reddit 2.0
Yeah its been hard to post with work and I'm pretty sure most of us have some sort of responsibility here unlike all the edge lords on 4ching.
I think the answer is, we stop worrying about killing 4chins, and just focus on being better than 4chins. We can exude quality, and the anons who give a shit will find us. And you know they will, because those anons lurk hard, and get involved in circles that would spread the word.
this. If butt-devastating /qa/ has taught me one thing, it's that all one's occupying can be undone during their 9-5. >>1642
also this. Creativity and OC will spread the word far better than advertized banners imo
All I know is that once we encyclopia dramatica tears us a new asshole with some article we will know we've made it.
Holy shit, I didn't mean to send that. I'm on my phone and I can't stop sending awful posts. I'm just going to stop typing until I can use a computer.
The best thing we could do is to have Aryanne or one of our OC be declared a hate symbol
It really would be a spectacle.
That slanty-eyed kike doesn't give a shit about 4chins.
Somebody send a tip to the ADL.
I just posted "this" three times in a row...
I can't post all the time, but I try to. Let's all work together for a better board!
We love you and your work for this board!
>>1604>This definitely needs the word to spread out
i agree but we should be careful as to who we attract. quantity is pointless without quality.
We're targeting /pol/ right now
I'll try too. But I just started playing mount and blade.
Ah... Thank you... Y-you too...
Don't be jelly. If you can fix that ground under dreadnaughts feet, you can take credits if you like.
We just hit over 1k users. We are not in the media interest like nu/pol/. The only place worthy being there are few generals like /sg/ , /nat-soc/ , lolbertarians right or western art.
We are the future. And we are growing stronger with each day!
>>1574>Is this the new 4chan?
Well, it is for me. I've hardly even touched nu/pol/ in the past month. In the first couple weeks, I just intentionally got myself b& so that I wouldn't crawl back like a battered wife, but now I find that I I don't even need to.
The board was slow in the morning yesterday, so I thought "Hey, maybe I'll go back to nu/pol/ and copy+paste a political thread because I'm a lazy fuck". I was astounded to see that there were no topics worth stealing.
4chan is a walking corpse.
As mlpol's resident Newfag, I can say that for me there literally never was any other board. I never came to 4chan before April 1st. After the end of the merged boards I followed the mlpol community in its raids on /qa/, and then to here. I have no desire to be anywhere but here. Where else can I find my dual interests in ponies and politics expressed as well as here? I've never lived through nu/pol/ and the decline of that board but I've seen it. I can tell just by looking at the catalog that the board is sickly and that poor moderation is killing it. So let's make this board what the admins of 4chan refuse to allow 4chan to be
I have generals filtered out even though I like /nat-soc/ and used to go on /sg/. I just don't like the idea of an insular sub-community on a board which is why this place makes me happy to see they have banned generals.
When I go back to /pol/ I just lurk through the catalog and if I see something that seems like genuine good discussion I join in. Its very rare but once in a blue moon I'll find a good thread but its all but too rare. All the newfags are shilling Colbert Cancer and trying to get /pol/ to be their personal army by turning x into a hate symbol or doxing y antifa member. That and the normal shilling is making the board empty of real conversation.
But its good to see we've hit 1k, we will continue to grow.>>1669
Alright resident newfag when I say it I mean it, lurk for at least 2months min. Just look and enjoy, so far your doing well just by looking at your post, but it never hurts to lurk and learn. I would like for this board to have more posters because the traffics a bit low but its better off if you learn about our parent board cultures a bit. Vist /pol/ and figure out how to sage and slide threads, go willing we won't need that here. Go to /mlp/ and see what going on in their respective side with all their generals. Let both boards grow an appreciation for what this place is and how not to fuck it up.
Other then that enjoy your stay and look forward to hearing back from our resident new fag in a few months.
I haven't been to /pol/ at all - not even briefly for some time now. Feels good fam.
Gosh... I can't get enough of that Fireax one.
Get me the other 2 as separate images and I'll do a group one
It's unpredictable what would happen if they deleted 4/pol/… Gamergate and /pol/harbor would be small in comparison.
Maybe they just don't want to take that risk, and so they let nu-pol kill it.
Could you explain this a bit?
I think that the gook takes and hand-off approach and just wants it's users to decide in which direction the board is going. He wants to have as less moderation as possible.
And he fired modcat, the SJW mod.
In my opinion, most mods are huge faggots and have some personal hatred towards /pol/ and /mlp/.... but the gook... idk.
In comparison to the cuck moot with his SJW girlfriend, hiro is doing better (by doing nothing at all).
>>1674>the other 2
You mean these two? Not that many pics of them yet...
It's sad... Many lulz were had back in the day..
Now it's gone...
More like S to spit on grave.
I will love you forever and ever and ever. And if you choose to visit me you will get all the vanilla ice-cream surprise you want.
But in all seriousness I love your posts, and I am serious about the ice-cream.
The mods are hostile towards /pol/. They leave the shill and bot threads alone and kill actual discussion. Such as right wing safety squads and the clinton foundation threads. Hell, mlpol was supposed to be a joke. But it instead became its own beast and the mods did not like that.
And with that, you truly are a man among men. Bless your soul.
>>1683>Hell, mlpol was supposed to be a joke. But it instead became its own beast and the mods did not like that.
The April First site announcement implied that they were doing it to punish us, but instead they ended up giving us an incredible gift: friendship.
So the entire plot of jojos?
The Second Image is from Tokyo RedHood though.>>1686
Im kind of sad that I left /pol/ months before before april first and only found out about it a month after it happened.
Too bad, you missed it.. That was the best (online) weekend I had i've had in a long time.
There wasn't that much to miss on /pol/ though. It was just days after the Syria strike: the shills were on full throttle and T_D was losing it's mind; it was insufferable.
New internet super power when?
All in good time, Anon. We grow stronger every day!
Mfw we took no part in HWNDU Shia hunt.
Mfw our activism is not showing.
It would do us well to make another mark of our own soon...
We're hopefully going to make another RWSS thread. We've got several anons interested and people finally have time on their hands now that it's summer
>>1692>we took no part in HWNDU Shia hunt.
To be fair, Shia had already given up on hwndu by then. We found his cabin, but there wasn't any flag to capture: What were we supposed to do, crucify him?>>1693
I was going to post something like this.
I made the original /rwss/ thread in the attempt to stir-up shit and increase board traffic. To get it to lift-off, we'll first need leaders, sources, and higher traffic, to get the show on the road. It would be great if we could bring-in some veterans from the old threads. At the very least, we need to inform those interested on /pol/ that /rwss/ is alive and 100% allowed here.
Do you think we definitely need a user to successfully execute an RWSS takedown before making a new thread about it? If that's the case I'll try and contact that other user
>>1696>we definitely need a user to successfully execute an RWSS takedown before making a new thread about it?
Nothing boosts user enthusiasm like results. Once we actually get a few leads/results. We can post the screenshots on /pol/.
If you have leads, don't hesitate to post them here so that the rest of us can help you through the LOSER process.
I don't think we existed at that point.
It isn't even /pol/ that is a walking caricature of what it used to be, EVERY BOARD is this on 4chan. Especially the big ones.
>/V/: Was once a place where discussion, and actual conversation on one's favorite games or games that seemed interesting could be found. Then Gamergate hit. Investigation began, and everything seemed well and good. But then the mods got triggered, went full shut it down, and opened the floodgates for all the newfags and shills. Ever since Gamergate, /v/ has been a festering sea of cancer.
>/TG/: Once a place where quality discussion could be had, where people could talk about RPGs that interested them, or other tabletop games BESIDES 40k. Then the Divide happened. Quests, one of the few things that acted as /tg/'s shield against the hordes of shills, Redditors, and newfags was removed, placed into it's own board by the kike mods to divide the denizens of /tg/. With that a neverending horde of Redditors, shills, newfags, and other degenerates flooded into the board killing all forms of discussion and reason. Nowadays it's a place where constant 40k shills shit up every thread they come across triggered by settings better than their grimderp circlejerk, and hordes of Reddit tier posters dissuade any disucssion on other topics. They also get triggered by the merest mention of /pol/ or politics, so don't even try to bring up those kinds of discussions.
>/CO/:Don't know a lot about /co/'s history prior o turning into the atrocity it is today. It's effectively the same as the other two, no discussion whatsoever aside from tumblr tier threads and posts, and everyone is a constant jerkass to one another. Just like /tg/ and other assorted boards, they get triggered by the merest mention of ponies or politics, despite being forced to watch as their favorite comics are being corrupted by racial and political degeneration.
>/X/: Oh boy, and now for the greatest shame of them all, besides /pol/ of course. Most of my experience with the board is with the the abomination it now is, but from what I hear old /x/ was a pretty fun place where people could discuss actual supernatural happenings, WITHOUT hordes of rampant fedorafags, self-proclaimed "intellectuals", succubi fags, Redditors, and a whole host of others coming in to shit up everything with their toxicity. Old /x/ was the place that created the old SCP Foundation, and had real discussion on some o the strange shit going on in the world, and not just the nonillionth "How du I summen a succubez?" thread. But you know what happened. Useless kike moderators, constant shill attacks from the fedorafags and Redditors, hosts of "intellectuals" coming in to "dsiprove" the supernatural, and a whole host of other shit killed the board. Sure there MIGHT be one or two good threads, but that's once in a blue moon. Out of all the boards besides /pol/, I think /x/ got hit the hardest. That isn't even getting into 'Ape of Thoth', one of the most prominent posters, being a full blown ALC lover, and oloch worshipper.
I think the porn boards are the only ones I find enjoyment in, along with /trash/ back on 4chan. /Mlpol/ is just so much better than 4chan could ever hope to be, and I really hope the folk over there can realize just how bad shit has gotten, and that they re welcome here.
Well, looks like /mlpol/ is finally taking off
Here's to a new adventure :)
im actually getting kinda sad at how chans in general are becoming shit. I remember a few years ago when it was fun to be on 4chan. Whats causing image boards to die like this anyway? Im glad /mlpol/ exists, hopefully this site can resurrect what chans are supposed to be.
This is depressingly accurate...
>>1701>What's causing image boards to die like this anyway?
People who insert the culture of other websites into new websites, eventually watering down the culture of all websites into the same thing. You can see this effect across comment sections on YouTube videos, Fora, and pretty much anywhere on the Internet.
Uniqueness is not possible anymore, or at the very least, is hard. I hate to use the word because it has lost all of its meaning, but this is what memes do.
Memes are the cancer that has killed the Internet and forums.
There are a couple of good things about the death of 4chan. For one all the redditors will slowly become used to being truly anonymous and this will hopefully change them for the better and two all of the new communities that are forming like /mlpol/, endchan, .pl, and meguca.
>>1576>>1579>In my personal opinion the Mods are actively hostile towards the /pol/ board>>1683>The mods are hostile towards /pol/
Hiro and The Mods are SJW's who want to kill /pol/, but can't be seen to explicitly kill it - since that level of censorship would give validity to the truths /pol/ is exposing and give /pol/ even more influence.
So instead of killing it themselves they instead allow in shills and bots to kill it for them.
It's the Sabra and Shatila massacre applied to free speech and thought.
>>1705> For one all the redditors will slowly become used to being truly anonymous and this will hopefully change them for the better
Highly doubtful. They seem to enjoy making fools of themselves no matter where they are. Being made completely anonymous has done nothing to change their usual behavior, I do agree that 4chan killing itself by allowing every form of degeneration to flood into it has benefited us immensely. If it wasn't for 4chan's mods being so insanely idiotic, /mlpol/ probably wouldn't have even been born.
not enough people like the pony porn to come here
Do you know why we care about /mlpol/?
I come from /pol/ myself, and when /mlpol/ happened, we experienced fun for the first time in years. It's been so fucking long since I've browsed a political board without feeling like I just swam through shit. /mlpol/ is a fucking godsend.
im in the same boat you are all im saying is that most people cant get over the fact that there will be ponys everywhere and they will just tolerate 4chan
Their loss.. I think if they aren't going to come here, they should go elsewhere than 4chan anyway...
I am not into pony porn at all. I do like the colour and the inventiveness of it. This place at the moment is slow on politics but safe and a lot less shit to put up with. Have not been doing much on any chans recently as life in the real world has been busy. Plus summer has arrived and I prefer a day at the beach or drinking an evening beer outside to sitting in front of a computer.
This, in ways. We are not united IN horsepussy, but we ARE united around it.
It's not my cup of tea either, but it's strong enough to drive out all other strains of cancer.
He's got a point though. If I had not experienced the miracle on April 1st, I would've never, ever even considered coming to a site like this, because I was so, so, so wary of horsefuckers.
And herein lies the reason this board exists. /pol/acks are wary of horsefuckers like we horsefuckers were wary of /pol/acks. But we who were and are willing to look past the quirks of each other find that our commonalities outnumber our differences and we can now engage each other as intellectuals and equals.
4chan chose to die. When the mods decided to turn on the core users and pan to the edge lords it died. mlpol.net is our future it is the next evolution of 4chan
