Just thought I'd create this thread where you can post any bugs or problems with the site you encounter. And also for me to post any big changes I made.

Why is it that when site aspects are changed quitely with little-to-no user input there's rarely any controversy, but when a user makes a thread here to voice legitimate concerns and hear the site's opinions or start conversations about potential changes a bunch of users are suddenly on edge about "subversion"?
Legit quastion. We weren't always like this; we used to talk about the present state and future of the site casually without this level of paranoia. How can we fix the increasingly hostile atmosphere on this board?

I'll add another element to this initial query, and this is largely ubiquitous to site discussion/changes, other projects (such as the 4cc team), et al.
Discord
I make the case that there is too much reliance on discord in the discussion phase of many/most site-related activity. While the implementation phase makes sense, I propose that alot of anons don't want to have to become less anonymous when offering suggestions, opinions, or input, nor do they necessarily want to be part of a committee (which is what alot of the discords end up functioning as).
As a consequence of this, the 'outside-of-committee' discussion/threads can be (and readily ARE, as can be seen) maligned as insincere, lacking commitment/credibility/sincerity, and, and a whole host of others.
The end result is, 'committee'members can grow to resent 'casuals' (read: on-boarders only) and the anons can grow to resent the 'committee' for keeping everything on their 'super sekret discord'.
Neither perception of the other is either authentic or fair, of course.

Oh, certainly. It's not something that most Anons agreed to when this site was made, but it became the go-to medium out of convenience.
>alot of anons don't want to have to become less anonymous when offering suggestions, opinions, or input, nor do they necessarily want to be part of a committee (which is what alot of the discords end up functioning as)
I can agree with that too. I didn't even have a discord before /mlpol/, and I only made one because I eventually felt like it was necessary for site matters.
I think it's something that needs to be figured out.

Again, theres no conyest to its utility in implementation, but discussion should reasonably occur on site. Shit ideas will still be shit whether or not one is anonymous, as will good ideas, and screennames become irrelevant, as does any consequential exclusivity

Could /mlpol/ Benefit From A Blue Pony Board?
Posters in this community have brought of various ways to make the site more attractive to horsefuckers and content creators. One reccomended idea has been to introduce a blue board for pony content.
Is this idea worth trying?
What could the benefits be?

Like, seriously, I tried my best to word everything as diplomatically and considerately as possible, but it can't be helped if people want to mix past grievances or paranoid suspicions into a completely separate conversation. I don't think we should just avoid having the conversations at all either just because people get angry about things though. I want everyone to express themselves.

I've actually felt this for a long time now, but never really spoke up about it because I thought I might have been the only person affected by the atmosphere. It looks like I'm not the only one who feels that way.
I've heard of people talk about quality over quantity for a while, but on boards that are supposed to be for entertainment, having too tense of an attitude can mean you get neither.

I don't think so, actually. The template for making a board already exists.
>resources
I don't think so either. We have plenty of site data, and barely use most of what is already paid for.
>it would possibly be a passing fad that lasts mere days
That is actually a legitimate concern. I think people would prefer the idea if there were some guarantee that the board would actually be used, or that there were someone committed to stocking it with content.

Oekaki Issues

A lot of the features of the oekaki seem to not be functional anymore.
The "Undo" button doesn't work at all.
It seems to no longer be possible to drag and expand the edge of the canvas to enlarge the pic image.
It also seems to no longer be possible to hotlink/paste an image from another source into the oekaki to trace over anymore.
I think the color select function might not be working either, but idk.
Can these be fixed? They all worked a few years ago. With these issues, drawings like pic-related aren't currently possible.

Also general discussion about the site's oekaki.

Is there any reason why the archives aren't searchable like the currently active threads? There's a couple of threads I'd like to find, but I think I might be skipping past them in the archives.

I'm also wondering if it's possible to have a thread from the archive brought back and stickied. I'm specifically looking at the MLP Fanwork Preservation Thread here https://mlpol.net/mlpol/archive/301995

Proposal: Split-Up /vx/
Anonymous
No.6590
6594 6596 6606 6607 159293
/vx/ has been one of more freuently used boards for along time now. The board throws a wide net, attmpting to formally encompass the topics of /v/ and /x/, and informally encompass the concepts and topics of /tg/, /qst/, and arguably /vint/. While the board has seen lots of use in its days, its wide range of topics might also be to its detriment.
For starters, the concept of /vx/ began a continuation of the theme of the April 2017 prank of combined boards being ironically better than their respective parent boards. /vx/ was proposed in response to demand for players who wanted a place to discuss video games and other players who wanted a place to talk about supernatual things, as a means of giving a space for both. The thing is, while ll of the other boards were based on wordplays or jokes on behalf of the 4cuck staff, /vx/ was just kind of based on wanting to fill two niches with just one board. That was fine, as the /v/ and the /x/ posters didn't really get in eachothers way or argue, but they also didn't really interact in any notable way even f they did overlap. Many of th posters appear to stick to their handful of generals. There haven't been any memes that have emerged based on th concept of the usion of /v/ and /x/, or even /tg/ and /x/, as it appears that the concept of mixing fantasy game magic with actual magic isn't as adhesive as originally intended.

Shortly after it was created, /vx/ was coneptually expanded to include all gaming discussion, including /tg/ discussion and /qst/ style pbp roleplay threads. Those are certainly topics that this site benefits from, as all pony altchans have roleplay boards, and roleplay is banned on /mlp/ while ponies are banned everywhere else on 4chan. The roleplay threads take up the overwhelming majority of the boards posts per day, with discarded threads taking the lion's share of the board's catalog. You could even say traditional games and roleplay is the unofficial main topic of /vx/, despite it not being represented in the board's name. /vx/ certainly has a great volume rp posts, but general roleplay discussion has suffered, in part due to being suffocated by the board's other topics: it doesn't help ease of casual rp discussion when you have to first specify that you're talking about fantasy magic over actual magic, and roleplaying games instead of video games. The threads on the board that are aimed towards /tg/-style discussion don't get very many replies. The flags and IDs don't really contribute to those aspects either.
That aside, roleplay definitely has the potential to be a big thing on this site, and I'm certain that we could do better. All the other pony altchans have prolific roleplay boards, and I'm certain /pol/acks have their on unique roleplay ideas too.
Meta-wise, /vx/ is formally-blue (now red) board where posts have both flags and image IDs, similar to /mlpol/. That coflicts with the concept though, because neither /v/ nor /x/ had those components, neither are they necessary for discussion on either board.
Obviously, the inclusion of flags is a nod to /vint/, our sister board. /vint/ was one of the other April 1st 2017 board that everyone liked, being another board that several Anons demanded to have reinstated on 4chins to no avail. "She" was featured in the /mlpol/-tan comic that many of us bonded over in the /qa/ wars as they spilled into [s4s], having met /mlpol/-tan in the darkness of the deleted zone where they encountered the ravenous /z/. The flags were added to sate Anons who wanted to bring /vint/ back, although the board hasn't really satisfied the feel or appearance of the old /vint/, especially since neither /vint/ nor any of the boards it was effectively combined with featured image IDs.

Now, don't get me wrong, /vx/ is my secon favorite board after /mlpol/. I just really think this site could do
>"So what do you propose, faggot?"
I propose that /vx/, with due anticipation and announcement, should be archived in place of other board(s) that better accomodate its many topics. The boards would be separate and based on ideas that mesh together or have cultural sigificance, such as:
>/vint/ ("international vidya"): our sister board which was in high demand for ressurrecion. It already has its wn memes, and even a cute board-tan. Bringing /vint/ back would satisfy the needfor a place to discuss video games (and random pajeeting), while reaffirming this site's committment to 2017 nostalgia. The board should feature flags, but not poster IDs, in spirit of our sister board.
>/kx/ (maybe "weaponized autism"): A dangerously-based idea that was proposed as an alternative to /vx/ as early as 2017. /kx/ would be a radical and mystic hive of schizoposting, and an original hybrid board that 4chins jannies weren't brave enough to create. It would satisfy the want for /x/-tier supernatural discussion and conspiracy theories, while also providing space for this board's currently-untapped potential for gunposting and prepping. The /x/ side of /vx/ wouldn't really suffer at all from being divorced from the /tg/ and /v/ elements, and the big-schizo energy from the /k/ element of the board could serve as a huge bullet-shaped viagra to supercharge the board's discussion and create its own culture. /kx/ would have neither post IDs nor flags, as anonyity is important to it.

>/hp/ (maybe "Horseplay"?): A roleplay board that the bathhouse threads could migrate to and make their own without smothering video games discussion. A roleplay board serves to benefit a community such as ours as it facilitates creation if OCs and other content, which is why other pony altchans give them their own boards. It could also be the place for /tg/ disussion, or CYOAs. /hp/ would have neither flags nor post IDs, as none of its elements (/mlp/, /tg/, or /qst/) have them.

These are ideas I've considered for a while. I wouldn't expect them to be implemented immeditely, but perhaps you guys might take some time to warm up to the idea for the future?

Final Solution To The Flag Problem

It's no secret that the small size of this board makes it so that some posters from certain countries may not get to experience a desirable degree of anonymity for being identified by their flags. This problem has intimidated certain non-American posters, including artists and other horse-famous content creators who only came to talk about ponies from being able to post freely. The "don't show my flag" option was implemented years back, but it tends to look out of place, and is inconvenient to use because the poster has to opt into the usage of it in every post, prompting posters to forget between posts and expose their flags.
As a more refined solution, I propose adding an optional "Equestria Flag". It would work essentially like a 4/pol/ memeflag, except with less autism because there would only be one option and the flag makes no statements other than that the poster is a fan of FiM. The flag could be used by posters from rare countries who don't want their usage of this board traced back to them, or by posters who are posting about ponies and don't care to make any political statements on a particular day. More importantly, once a user makes the decision to turn the flag on, the flag would remain there until they turn it off (or their posting password changes, idk), sparing them the hassle of trying
In addition, the idea has been floated around to make it so that OPs could make all flags hidden for non-political threads, like we did with poster IDs. If the above idea is accepted, perhaps that could be implemented by giving OPs the option to make all flags in the threads Equestria flags.

Could this be done? Is it a decent idea? Any thoughts on the matter?
I've been thinking of reccomending this for a while, and I hope it would make it more comfortable for some of our non-American lurkers to post more freely. I think the ability to hide flags is pretty important for the wellbeing of this site, so I hope this is a good idea.
