The sage function should be expanded to include "Sage" (with a capital S) too. Anons keep messing up.

Is it possible to make Mlpol view-able in other languages? I know language translation programs/sites exist, but is it A. possible and B. not ridiculously complex to develop a board-proprietary language option?
Certain elements are not translate-able, but for simple discussion perhaps?

Some games have that feature of auto translation already installed in real time chat, it should be possible.

How to do it? Well that is really complex and we should probably get some constant user feedback (like how faceshit asks for better traditions)

When I use foreign image boards, I just use the Jewgle translate to translate all the text on the page, but I only lurk, because I know my shitty translations would just fuck up the conversation.

It wouldn't need to be all languages. I don't know how complicated of an idea I'm talking, but Spanish, French, German (might get ppl arrested),... definitely Russian (you've seen the meme right?) should suffice.

I can help with Spanish and portuguese If needed but it's all on the programmer, really.
We should ask lotus or whoever is in charge of that.

I'll admit, this idea is growing on me.

That is what I thought, but some moderators believe "it's shit, it belongs on /sp/"

I asked our developers to see how well mlpol.net works with Google translate. I am not certain of the results

I guess that is possible. Would this be a feature like bolding?

What. Uh, I guess pink text is possible?

Might it be possible to develop a feature where an anon can be filtered site-wide? Something comparable to the existing filters, except cued to (without revealing) a poster's IP?

The site's Search system doesn't work very well. Happy the time when you enter in what feels like a very distinguishing phrase, the result comes out as "query too broad".

We'll add this to the list of issues to be improved in the re-write of the code

Could we have Invidious links added to Youtube URLs, similar to the embed function? It's useful for getting around georestrictions and also gives you a download option.

Hopefully not too much work to implement, it's just the YT URL with youtube.com changed to invidio.us.

I'll add converting youtube links to invidious as an option for users in settings. Invidious links are already supported in new code when it comes to embedding.

I meant adding an [invidious] link in brackets after the URL, visually similar to how embeds show up. An option to convert all links sounds nice, but if it requires changing settings most people aren't going to even know it exists.
