>Captchpa for Spam protection
Not needed at the moment. When properly set up the built in spam control takes care of bots pretty alright.

>DDos Protection
I am not sure about this server but I know mine has DDoS protection as part of the package, also have it behind cloudflare. Maybe cloudfare would be a good choice for here to.

>Archive site like 4plebs or desuarchive
I am not sure about this one, not everything needs to be saved. But maybe a arc board for the best of the best? I mean if something really awesome goes down there is always people screen capping.

>Multiple images per post
Already in, but I plan on implementing an optional drag and drop system that will make it even easier to use.

>Visible logs on bans
I will try to make this happen within the next day or 2.

On 4chan you can directly embed videos in posts. Also, the catalog fucntion on /mlpol/ seems to be inconsistently located while on the main page, catalog, and in threads.

I am still trying to work out the video embedding.

Both in the Index of a board and thread the Catalog button is right next to the Go to top and bottom buttons. Where would you like to see them?

I'd like them always at the top and bottom of every page on the site. Same goes for update button. Basically just like how 4chan does it.

There was activity offsite to get to the bottom of what was going on with false flagging. Do you want me to explain it here or make a new thread? It's relevant to the /mlpol/ community as a whole.

I think archive is the best method for people to stop making threads like "Hi guize I was away for few months plz spoonfeed meh", then people can go through archives and see for themselves what they missed.
I'm an 2016 newfag but I managed to teach myself most of 4chan's history and background infos with desustorage

A bit more of a meta question than I would like; what happens if 4chan /mlpol/ comes back? What will come of this site? I'm already starting to like even more. It's a comfy barrack away from the war.

Ok, im just spooked about that "destruction of a group" comic
Where the woman doesn't care about thr hobby, but the attention she gets for being a woman in the ingroup

Like recently a female joined the discord and quickly decided to hop on vc. No content added to the discord, no discussion, just "im a girl come listen to my voice"

Even if they make a dedicated board over there, it'll still be a shitty place. The mods will continue to be assholes. The owner will still be a greedy idiot. It'll still be a contaminant board. It's like wanting to live in a ghetto. The only positive is traffic and we could just redirect from a dedicated board.

Definitely in the camp of selective archiving here for historical purposes.
In the cases of OPs & the like, screens those wishing to participate can post when/if necessary (& then even delete after; I'm a paranoid fuck) would be much better.
This site catches on or garners any media interest & there's an archive of 'greatest hits' in that regard, going to paint a nice target.

Some that could be better is the catalog.
The scroll bar is ugly and the text reaching down towards the thread below isn't that beautiful either.

Another things is legal protection for the owner.
I don't know much about the law but maybe you should put a disclaimer somewhere that you are not resposible for any of the posts and its 18+ or something.

Third thing is an advice.
If you get more janitors/mods maybe you should save the threads deleted somewhere so you can see if somebody uses his rights to harm the comunity.
If someone is deleting a lot of threads you'd be able to see it.

Maybe add this to css (for colored ids):

.poster_id {
border-radius: 10px;
padding: 0px 5px;
}

I have it in custom css, but IMO it's generally nicer.

Also code tags, in case they don't work.

It would be nice to have a reply/images/page counter on the top aswell.
And a reply button on the bottom too.

Being as the board's a bit slow a times; it'd be nice to have the ability to edit your post. I feel like an ass reading through a thread & replying to multiple people separately, & it comes out as several comments in a row from just me; or having to keep a reply window open reading the whole thread/running text file to make it all show up as one comment.
I realize it opens the door to people changing what they'd written after being called out on something; so it'd only really work if there was something akin to an(Edited)"button" that'd get added to the comment when you did that, that shows the history of edit(s) made & what the comment was before the change (potentially something akin to the image expansion from hovering over it?) Not a coder or anything, so no idea how much of a pain in the ass or any of that would be to pull off, if even possible, though.

Back in the earlier days of /pol/ we occasionally had writefags do CYOA civilization threads on /pol/.

That certainly sounds fun. I remember something that sounds vaguely similar from /mlp/. Didn't pan out though, they're more interested in story than politics over there.

Ok I just tested again and this time made sure to reference a post that I made myself so i know it exists.

It worked!

Perhaps I just got really unlucky 3 times and linked deleted posts...?

Statistics view (2).png
>>2626
A statistics view, measuring posts per hour and per day, with the previous week as a point of reference, and measurements of the posts per board, has been in place for about 8 weeks now as a feature of the moderator-dashboard. A search of the chat-log shows that at the time it was created, when asked why the feature was not made public, the developer responded "no need for it to be public at the moment. It needs to at least work first."

Making statistics public was discussed among staff, and the Lead Developef agreed to make a form of post counter that would display publicly
