most /mlpol/ activity happens on these threads or threads like these making them stay on the frontpage while the good pony threads fall down the catalog. ponies are being replaced by tourist non-pony lover threads. there was a healthy income of ponies and balance between pony
threads and non-pony threads but now ponies are becoming the minority.

Because there is autism enough to keep them going, so simple like that.
If you want more pony, post more pony. Complaining about /pol/ activity is kinda zigger tier.

By the way, spamming pony threads to later abandon them for lack of enough autism won't help.

Spamming doesn't matter if it refreshes the catalog. All those threads did was slide threads that hadn't been posted to in months.

I would like to point out that all but two of the threads mentioned in the OP lack poster IDs, and as such the quality of discussion has really deteriorated.
Poster IDs are essential for /pol/ threads. We made the option to remove them for the sake of pony threads.

I think the best one could do is simply engage more with pony threads. This site is barely clinging to life and will continue dying, so I'd just try to enjoy it while it lasts.

And they insist it "levels the playing field" against shills. But I can confirm it's rather easier to shit up a thread without ID's. Not sure how it was supposed to make it any harder.

That's not even close to true.

Exactly. Especially when retards pull stupid double-speak, agree with themselves, or post mutually-exclusive claims.

Not only that, the "generals" made without poster IDs suck up all of the discussion related to their very broad topics, which was bad in the first place, but it's even worse now that the generals almost exclusively have no poster IDs since that means conversations go there to die. Rule 11 discourages posters from making their own threads with IDs if the thread's topic falls within one of the generals, so the overall effect is a lowering of discussion quality on the board.
Poster IDs were made for a reason. They're a staple of /pol/ discussion (one of the more unique aspects of /pol/ on 4chan). The removing option was a compromise made to encourage /mlp/ threads (although we still haven't given OPs the option to hide all flags in their threads).
There should be some unwritten policy/etiquette that discourages making /pol/ threads without IDs. ID-less threads are for ponies.

I'm pretty sure since this is a community driven site and the numerous /qa/ threads, about the same topic that's been discussed multiple times, a soltuion is to just post the damn important news/thread in the first place if it's important/lots of discussion/communityfun enough.
If it dies it dies. Else it goes where is supposed to go. Doesn't shit stuff up. Ect.

Absolutely.
Make a green text thread, a mare thread, a pony pony thread, a snowpitty thread, a thread where mares have to be posted to spell out M A R E or something. (You) can make a great thread maybe even the best.
Sometimes it flops because that's life, and sometimes it soars, and sometimes other circumstances are in play.

Yup. They post some pony thread and let it die. At least "general /pol/ threads" are consistent and continuous. It is not /pol/'s fault that /mlp/ fags are low energy.

/mlp/ is slow enough already. Remove the gay tranny threads and it's even slower. Though I'm sure each of us Nazi horsefuckers possess a potent degree of autism as individuals, we're too few in number to sustain enough quality pony to keep things moving.
/mlpol/ can't remain solvent without both /mlp/ and /pol/, no matter how hard shit-flinging spergs might try to fracture our glorious and harmonious union.
We a need a mare renaissance more than infighting. You should step up and be our Marist Mussolini.

The Hi Anon posting was limp. Quick shots don't please mares as much as skilled, long ride, redpilled, kekking, shitposts.
It left the mares wanting a real Anon, thats why they went to the Football himself.
You can do it, it takes some practice maybe an effort post or five, but I believe it's possible.

Just one user posting repeatable content isn't much more than artificial post count. You are correct, it isn't against any rule. However, suppose I reply to this 20 times with a pony picture each time? Is that content? This is why the majority were moved, as it is allowed, but it isn't anything but empty content if you don't make something that is engaged with.

Just checking in to say that threads like these are demoralizing for people like me who actually create pony content. How about you give me some (you)s and reflective responses with your time instead.

Nothing will come of these threads anyway.

On that note, the mantra that the site is "dying" won't make things better.

What does it matter if it dies, if there is no "content" anyway?

Yes. Every time this complaint popped up, the post count went to the sewer. What OP is saying is that /pol/ posting is undesirable and hurts pony threads.
So, in my case, I'm stepping aside.

Where did he say that? All he said is that there's a notable disparity between /pol/ posts and pony posts, and it's worth everyone's attention to try harder to fix that, because ponies are equally important to what defines is as a board.

I'm not sure if OP and frens are low IQ or /leftypol/ faggots larping like horsefuckers. In any case by kicking /polacks/ out this board is on its way to extinction. And this is not their first attempt to run /mlpol/ to the ground, but they might be successful this time.

No need, but I saw the trend in the last months about berating polack's threads while they never did anything even close about pone threads. I agree that some threads are not good, but also pony threads.
>You're jumping to conclusions.
You are damn right, if there are almost no /pol/ posting, then this board already lost at least half of its regular traffic.

Well, I can't really speak for OP, because he only made one post, but wanting to increase proportional pony content (or being disappointed by lack of results) doesn't mean reducing /pol/, because it's not zero sum. I think everyone could benefit from more pony content.

I don't especially want to reduce /pol/ content, but I will say that I wish the /pol/ content here was a little better. I complained a while back about how /pol/ content has devolved into low-effort dumping of memes and news articles with little to no actual discussion. The threads OP highlights are examples of that sort of thing. I was mostly blown off, but I still think we could do a little better on the political side than just recycling low-effort Facebook memes. In any event, I think more ponies is something we can all agree on.

I think we could do better too, tbh. It wasn't always like this.
/mlpol/ has always been about quality over quantity, but if we keep going down this path we'll have neither.
That's not to discourage anybody from posting or having fun, but think a bit about overall quality. Low-effort meme-dumping in generals doesn't really contribute to a great board.

News article aggregation is high effort stuff. Interact with the valuables time and effort dedicated Anons do if you must.
If you think a specific article is important enough make another thread and why.
Why not do what I suggested for pony threads and make them yourself. Make the /pol/ content you like to see.

If posting content and effort means more effort posts and content is made it accumulates. That means it's enriched, more encourages more.

It is indeed. Imagine to browse hundreds of addresses to cherry pick just a few in order not to bloat the board, then the job of curate the webpage by removing adds, social network links and similar begins.
