Unformed, unsoruced, unfleshed out thread topics, templates, and generally unfinished threads go here. This wil be filled soon. Ideas will come soon.

What do you consider to be a 10/10 thread? What needs to happen in a thread to make it particularly enjoyable, interesting, fun or just plain comfy to you? What kinds of threads on other chans did you consider to be the best and/or your favorite?


I love the political and engaging threads. And pony threads with me a good thread is one that gets you into it and the thread it self have twists and turns. But stays MOSTLY on topic and doesn't spiral into shit.


I guess the biggest thing is just that it's active. I love a good thread where there is some discussion going on and sharing of ideas, but the biggest thing is just that there are plenty of people to keep it going. It could be a meh thread with a relatively uninteresting premise as long as there are plenty of people there to post at and talk to and such. Also cute ponies. I hang out on /mlp/ a lot because that's where you will find all the threads dedicated to cute little ponies and cute little scenarios and such.

Could we rename /cyb/ to /scib/ science and cyberpunk? The board hardly gets any traffic and scientific discussions could attract more users to the board.

Science, sci-fi, and cyberpunk.


File: 1502423107823.jpg (27.04 KB, 387x380, 1497980610310.jpg)

Is this supposed to be arousing?


I don't think so…


I'd like to plug my previous suggestion for "Cyberpunk - Tech, Science Fiction and Fact" as a title.


I'm not sure renaming it will help..
What it needs is a big content surge to jump-start it and give it an actual board culture. That way people will actually know what to post to it, and know that someone is seeing reading their posts.

Organize the Featured Thread Archive by Post # or I'm going to report you!


I asked the Lead Developer


People don't check the archives enough…
There are certainly a few threads there worthy of being featured.


Which ones?

Just randomly heard about this during a stream and I would like to pitch it to the admin team for consideration.

When this post was first created, and hatetreon came to our attention, the reaction by the staff was that we should "wait and see." Hatetreon is new and untested, and we want to see if there are any issues before joining. At present, we are seeking funding through Stripes.



very well then, lets see what happens


This just in.

Hatreon Removed From the Internet By Their Host, DigitalOcean


Brace yourselves for unironic internet war.


Why not both? Sync it to the same PayPal and stuff. Also is it stripe or stripes? Had a bad experience with the former, never heard of the later.

If you do a hatereon account I would probably donate. Hell, I might even donate once in a lump sum to a PayPal or something.

So I noticed things have been a little dry over the past three day when I wondered: just what kind of threads are appropriate for this board?
To /pol/acks, what kind of /pol/ threads would you like to see moar of here, and what kind of new threads would you like to create? Sure, we have happening threads, but on days with few significant happenings the board can seem a bit starved for content. If you had to create one new thread every day, what kind of thread would it be? What content do you want to read moar about, and where's a good place to get links?
For our friends from /mlp/, how would you go about creating content for this board, without devolving into general-cancer? What kind of content do you want to see here, and how would you go about creating it?

Not really.
I do think this one's interesting though.


Ah. I just thought that was an offense.
sorry lol

Where do I send this idea directly to? If they want /B/, it's got to be as unique as the double brother who stole AppleJack's audiences with a giant unique machine.

Alongside, it would also being back that giant-pony-face event that happened in /mlp/ a while ago.


>Where do I send this idea directly to?
Here, I guess.. It's /qa/ after all…

Sorry to make a thread for this, but does anyone have that weird paragraph about /sp/? Begins with something about shepherds. i checked the announcements archive and it's not displaying any announcements


On August 14, 1959, there were shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, a football did appear to them, and it did become all football, and there was a great joyous noise, for the light was Football, and Football was the Denver Broncos. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we have created a new trial board for reverential meditation on the subject of football, as well as off-topic shitposting and random discussion. The board is called /sp/, and it shall be for all people, but not the Jews. Or the blacks. Or the Seattle Seahawks. Praise Football. Praise American.



Praise football.


Isn't football a dirty anglo game

I think I do decent politics threads that /mlpol/ is lacking. My IP doesn't change. Thanks.


Threads per hour is based on a board-wide limit. Every board except for /sp/ has a board-wide limit of 5 per hour. This is an extremely effective anti-raid measure, and it has effectively made wiping the board with bot-spam impossible. We are probably not going raise it as it has worked for most purposes. I recommend waiting until the next time period and posting five more threads then.


Thanks for the reply :)

The 16 pages of threads make the board stale and the catalog a mess
I think it is overkill and we have an archive for old threads

/r/ is dead and maybe should become /b/ where requests and off topic shit and musik and whatever it is that is not political can be discussed

pic not related but true

Can you delete this thread >>>/mlpol/65197? It has hit levels of mass autism and it's not even on topic.


mlpol.net moderation does not take sides in any drama that happens to spill over onto the board.


Yes, but I don't think it's a partisan issue, more so the entire thread has devolved into such a blight. It's not worth continuing.


I suggest moving it to /qa/ because it has pretty much ran its course. However, people's arguments can be referred to in the future if need be. People will inevitably have the same questions/concerns in the future.


also nopony responded to my request and I'm curious if it's possible to organize the featured archives by post # to make it chronological >>2216

File: 1503304481724.png (85.22 KB, 600x600, 1502340904852.png)


I request that all the shitposting and funposting threads be moved to >>>/sp/ along with the merging of the same thread existing on both boards. At lest until /sp/ becomes a verified board, which I am sure it will be.


Please don't.


Exactly how new boards will affect rules for the main board is an area of uncertainty. A permanent shitposting board is probably going to result in a de facto banning of shitposting from the main board, with shitposting threads being moved. Perhaps some threads will be allowed on the main board. mlpol.net has not historically had an enforcement of board topics, but may soon.


I think it should be a bit more relaxed than that, with maybe a couple of funposting threads on the main board, but I certainly approve of the bulk of them being moved.

What happened?
10.00 GMT -3 to ~13:00 GMT-3


There was a error with the payment for the server, we are trying to find out the cause but as of right now we should be set. Once we find out more about what happened we will let you know. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Happy to know it was something simple. Thank you for all your work in getting us back up!

Could you please add ".svg" and other vector image types as a supported file type? I want to be able to directly post vector files I make in the drawfag threads and meme creation threads.

The attached PNG template is stroked from a vector I drew over the pone gf meme as shown. Being able to send the SVG directly would be beneficial to other artists/memers who could then edit and fill smoothly as desired, instead of having to choppily raster edit over the template.

I don't know the technical difficulty of displaying vector images the same way as raster images are displayed now on the site. Even if it proves too much to deal with, it would benefit the creative community here greatly if you at least would add it as an attachment only and use the thumbnail of that paperclip or something similar.


Seconding this.


Redpill me on .svg files. How are they superior to .png files in terms of making/using vectors?


SVG is a vector format. PNG is a raster format.

Vector images only store paths and stroke details, which are later drawn by the image viewer. This allows vector images to be scaled up as large as you want without pixulation; the paths will just be re-drawn when you view it at any size.

Raster images are saved pixel-by-pixel. This means that if you scale a raster image up, it will have blurs and pixulation.

Vectors are used for different purposes than raster images are. For example, logos are often created as vectors so that they can be scaled to fit whatever designs you have in mind for it, from an icon to a tshirt to a huge banner. In vector image editing programs such as Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator, you can draw vector paths and then have it fill in the inside with a color or gradient. This scales as well since it's a vector, contrasted by raster painting which looks like shit when you zoom it up.

Pony templates properly saved as vectors give the advantage of being able to instantly fill in a skin color of your choosing, vice raster templates which often look choppy on the inner borders and can require much touch-up to even look decent.

Hello site team,

I was just looking for a thread (the hate facts thread from that crusader poster) and could not find it anymore either in /mlpol/ or /go/ (/go/ is pretty empty with many threads with 0 replies btw)

Id like to ask if it is possible to expand the catalog to pages to increase the uptime for important threads on the main board.

Also I would suggest to turn /go/ into a general archiving board. As far as i can tell no one is really voting for threads to get moved there.


Maybe it has gotten a bit small…


The thread in question was sent to the archive perhaps two days ago and can be found here in this link https://mlpol.net/mlpol/archive/res/43800.html
The catalog was reduced in size to 10 pages over a month ago when the then 2500 page limit to the catalog (so high to prevent a board wipe), which expanded to 29 active pages, was objected to by anonymous users. The catalog size was raised to 12 pages a week or so ago to prevent the then-common thread spam from knocking threads off of the catalog.

It is possible to raise the catalog size to 15 or whatever number of pages if desired.


12 pages is more than enough in my book. Really, just use archive.
