How many mods/admins are their now?




Thanks you spared me the effort of saying the same thing.

So we got a /nsfw/ board now eh?
do you really want to divide us further?
is it that you want to create a fucking /mlp/ board too?
is it that you want to create a mother-fucking /pol board too?
what the fuck is wrong with you?
we want unity, we are just a few days old.
what the fuck is it with this division?
we agreed that the pone porn should BE AT /mlpol/ DIDN'T WE?

The reason that we ended up divided on 4chan is because the divides were enforced as bannable, the sfw boards and nsfw boards were cross bannable no ponies here, no politics there blah blah keep to your containment board
But that will never EVER be the case here, you can post what you want where you want, board titles are just a suggestion
I have three reasons for my decision to make a nsfw board,
1. the first board was filling up, old threads were being deleted faster than you think, we needed to expand to allow people to discuss more over longer periods of time, the slow pace is comfy and we all like that
2. when the shills come, and they will, we need to be ready, sadly not everyone will be ready, many people don't have a giant supply of weaponized pony poon to post, a nsfw board would give them a place to go, stock up, and launch an attack. again THERE WILL NEVER BE AN ENFORCEMENT OF BOARD TOPICS say what you want, where you want, how you want
3. People will want to find certain topics faster and easier, without the need to sort through a whole board to find one thread about pony tang, this board will give them that. just like how we made QA so that you can ask us questions and we can find them quickly, people still ask us stuff on the main board, but it's just harder to find, we're talking literally hundreds of posts 1.5 gigs of images and data to sort through, sometimes it's just easier to click the link that says what you want.

no one is trying to divide you, we're just giving you more places to put your toys

bet you think /qa/ is dividing us too right?


Fair enough, thanks for staying engaged with the community.


This makes sense


If anything can we get a sticky on nsfw strictly making it a dump site? Or encouraging them to post porn in mlpol? Even then I'd perfer mlpol be the dump site, theres just too little incentive to gross out normies on mlpol if everyone can get their porn on nsfw. Its just an unnecessary diversion of energy and motivation. Id much perfer all porn on mlpol. A request thread on mlpol reaching image limit od far better than a shill thread with a bump limit. But see how it goes. If theres a lack of porn shielding, just remove the board

You know what'd be great?
Global IDs.
Instead of having just per-thread IDs, every poster's ID would be shared across the entire board. Not the entire 'chan, that's unnecessary, but it'd make identifying shills (especially shill-started threads) oh so much easier.
They wouldn't last forever, of course - after a period of 6-12 hours your ID would get reset.

Then make the reset timer really short. One hour. Enough time to identify a wave of shilling.


how about something like a counter of threads created in the last 12 hours or something?


I can agree. I am in the boat of having a uncommon flag (at least here). But if we ever grew to a big part of this site I would also as Americans want to be able to hide in the masses.


i like the quiz idea but global ID still sounds like shit


>admin and mods can see IP addresses with posts, so if you suspect someone of being a shill just give us a report and we'll click their IP to see a list of every post

This makes anything outside of a thread ID to kill samefagging completely unnecessary; and could lead to either/and/or a lesser version of the 'social media' type ego fix tripfags are often about; or a breeding of reluctance to participate as fully or frequently as one might otherwise for various reasons (for instance, in my own case, anxiety issues that interfere with my ability to express myself properly or eloquently). My two pence.

So, does /mlpol/ have any plans for an emergency maneuver?

Say, the server gets hacked, taken down or anything along those lines, where do we regroup?

Calling out the jew and posting happy merchants is an integral part of /mlpol/, both on /pol/ on /mlp/ before the merge. I would not worry about that.

What I would worry more about are calls for censorship on the site. The spam bot attack confirmed the Eye of Zion is directed towards us.


Other than you pasta I agree with not having things censored. When I see that pasta I think either you have health problems or you are working in an office and this is part of the pastebin.

good goys we wouldn't want to offend our overlords now would we?




Basically the same thing.


the server has exactly one method of getting in, hacking directly into it is all but impossible, and I have a special key that can remote shut it down in case of unauthorized access

I turned down a janitor today because he demonstrated poor opsec, the security of the sever is paramount and every staff member is screened as well as possible, any dissent from the final solution is not tolerated

as far as the server being taken down by outside forces like DDOS the best way to avoid that is via a web service that can prevent it, if ur worried about that donate and we'll make it a reality

I had a dream today while napping that we enstablished secret club inside of which was another secret club which were all inside our already secred club.

Akin to how you put smaller boxes into larger ones and put them into one big box.

I think there are already shills here, or at least reddit tier peeps

The first few posts rub me the wrong way, it feels so sfw, so generic, like im looking at the msm.
"Trump seems to only solve things by tweeting"
Who would think this?

Red flags are popping up for me guise
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I noticed it too. Was a few clicks away from reporting it.

Not sure if I saved screenshot but as soon as I got suspicious, I went to chceck on /pol/ I saw post which looked exactly the same on /pol/. It had approx. 300 replies.

It started exactly like the post you linked but its wording further down was different.

I believe the post also got red text soon after it was posted. Admin probably noticed too.

Anyways, we dont want to go too paranoid on each other, right?



Also thats some spicy ass redpill wtf…


I think we should get paranoid, we cant let them normalize the discussion on the board. This isnt reddit, where people waste their time on the mundane like trump tweets, we're the ones who get down and dirty, autistically searching for the truth. And (((they dont want that)))

We need a guide, a way for other users to identify shill prose, we need more users posting degeneracy. Save the thread, use caps of it as an example


Ww2 was fought because of Germany's decision to change its economic system. Something had to be done to forever silence this movement

Also i found the thread


There will be shills in time. It is inevitable, but we have mods and horse pussy to keep us safe.

Is there any reason why we can't just break hyperlinks by default? Or at least pass on the norefer tag? It'd keep away the effort of having to manually break the links, and would keep errors to a minimum.
Even then, it's already late if anyone is truly concerned. Referring to youtube already brought us into Google's records, if they do watch referers for new websites.

I noticed a couple of permanent bans. You may be interested to see this list.


Forgot just type 176.10 in the search.


looks like 1000 hits is max it returns, but if you search for 176.10.104. you will see that it lists same IP several times so there is hard to tell how many IPs in subnet 176.10.*.* it is spammed from.


Might have to blacklist this site and put upna captcha soon admim


>save as csv
>cut -d, -f2 < search.csv | sort | uniq


Some of the problem is still that you will get 1000 hits max so who knows how many entries there actually is in their db.

Is it possible to get an system where threads that have had new posts since last view of catalog get some "mark" or styling to indicate it?
>would imagine the way to do it is to store timestamp in cookie and check that timestamp against last post in thread timestamp (or something like that)

File: 1491842813633.png (681.11 KB, 4000x5143, 1491263392714.png)


Can you implement a system where banned users get redirected to some fucked up site on the web instead of a "you are banned" page. Might make it less desirable to risk getting a ban.
(probably still need a way for users to beg for forgiveness)

We could perhaps send them via a temporary-url link or similar to avoid mlpol showing up in the referrals.


Is there a warning feature like on 4ch?

We could use this to redirect to the rules. This way we ensure that people see them.
The difficult thing would be making people read them and not just clicking it away…
Maybe something like "write the 5th letter from the back from each rule here"
or "type the tenth word of the rules here" or something like that

You guys ought to put cooldown timers for posts. Kinda gets anoyying then posts get discarded because it was seen as flooding.

Also, rangeban Malaysian IPs pls. We don't need Mike here.

The board, as it stands, is too slow. Old, post-1 April /mlpol/ would get 1k posts an hour; we can barely get a hundred on our /mlpol/. This is not a sustainable posting rate; while it is important to preserve the purity of this board, it will not lead to anything stable or powerful long term.

This brings us the question - How will we tackle the issue of bringing in new blood without compromising the board? How can we regain the many active /mlpol/tards that were bled when the board got frozen and subsequently deleted?
10 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


The only thing I'm worried about with getting new blood is overworking our mods. We should put some effort into protecting and nurturing good mods.


As things are progressing the admins are doing well. We have had a couple of tiny-raids without problems. As long as we do not have a large increase of new people all at once it will be o.k. /pol/ suffered because it got on the main stream news and all the new people did not know what threads were real and what were just bait. Avoid too much exposure on the main stream and we can cope. I do think that the cost of this board will increase and my knowledge of webspace providers is that once you start using up their bandwidth they suddenly start asking for a lot more money than advertised. If you look at the patron link I think they under-estimate the long term cost if traffic increases.

I like to post Hentai from time to time.


Yes, there's no reason to limit ourselves. At least, unless we start alienating others in our small group. We'll never survive if we need to start making containment boards like 4chan.


Well fuck you

At the time I wrote that I took it for granted that new users would be interested in politics. I was worried about imbalance. No one understood that

Without it making new posts is subtly discouraged.


Would be nice, but also nice that not much of the top is taken in catalog and you are always just one click away from being able to make a thread. I miss banner image more.


That will make it easier to spam though


>click one button
>post thread
>click back to catalog from that thread

Not hard op

Also it discourages quickly made threads. Aka shill/bait threads
