Spoiler-ed files should have their filenames changed to "spoiler image" (or something like that) so that the filename doesn't spoil the content anyway.

Which boards are included or excluded from recent posts on the homepage can be edited very easily; /vx/ can be excluded from the homepage during game nights and returned if necessary.

I saw it (I see everything). I am not sure I agree. Having an idea of what the spoilered content is is often helpful in determining whether you want to view it or not.

Actually, what was with this debacle? It wasn't just this thread, but several other posts were deleted. The 800000 Get was "accidently" deleted too. It looks like the situation is only escalating. I want some clarification.

You really cannot please everyone when determining what does and does not belong on the mainboard. A couple days ago, there was a thread about the decline of quality of Rick and Morty in its third season. The thread actually had a nexus to politics because it talked about diversity hires affecting the quality of the show. It looked fine to me, but people whined and bitched and demanded it be moved to /sp/. Yesterday there was a thread about Tom Petty and his evident death, and people demanded it be moved. Earlier today there was a thread about Derpibooru being cucked, and people wanted it moved, or at least one Admin wanted it moved - it was deleted. I believe there has been more over the past several days, but I cannot remember. In any event, the thread in question was a single sentence with no obvious meaning, and no title. A far fitter candidate for /sp/ then some that had actually been moved.

Well, simply after a mod deleted one or two posts, they could have clarified why. It would have cleared it up before anything would have bubbled to the surface, and I still don't believe it's being handled well without explanation yet someone still deletes the posts. Mind the provocativeness, but there's unneeded agitation that comes from this kind of rule.

I'm assuming you're referring to GET theft drama? Either you have it, or you don't have it. Atlas has already weighed in and determined he does not want it. To this end it's been banned on the moderator side. But it's reappeared anyways

Let's make a concrete rule on /sp/: If the thread is also a political discussion that couldn't happen in a regular pony thread, IT DOESN'T BELONG IN /SP/.

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.

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.
Anonymous

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.
