Something of a **newfag** question, but what's this weird shit with links? I went to share a link that was posted here somewhere else by copying the link and it added some intro to it,directly posting to show it:
https://href.li/?https://www.ted.com/talks/joseph_redmon_how_a_computer_learns_to_recognize_objects_instantly
That href.li thing, what is that?
If you're intending to block referrals and that's what it is supposed to do, since this is vichan it should work just like on 8chan: put a wordfilter in board settings on the colon.

Wordfilter : to :
Since the markup on this vichan seems to be different from the version of vichan 8chan uses I'm not 100% if it will work right in this software, but the italicization would be enough to make links unclickable and thus force the referral-less copying and pasting method to open a link.

Yes, the href.li was there to hide the http referrer so site you are visiting wouldn't know that you visited them from here. We have switched to using the HTML5 attribute noreferrer https://caniuse.com/rel-noreferrer as it now has 94.42% support rate among all users (98.14% among desktop) and should give same functionality without the use of 3rd party site. We will keep looking at solutions making it safe and comfy for users to use the site.

Alright, I will address this directly with a capcoded post, so that hopefully there can be an official summation of the issue. While I seriously doubt this reply will be accepted as satisfying, nevertheless this will (hopefully) be the final word on this that comes from me.

First off, I would like to say that I am not the mod who deleted the thread the first time, nor did I delete the second thread, nor am I the poster in >>4766 >>4769 and so forth. When the thread was deleted, the staff member in question noted that he deleted the thread on the staff discord. I asked why the thread was deleted. I did not get a reply then, but I have today, and I sympathize with his reasoning.

/sp/ is a designated shitposting board, /a/ I don't really care about, and I am not sure about /cyb/. Those are content boards. Their purpose is so that people have content they want to see, and so a "post in this thread each time you visit" kind of makes sense as it encourages posting. /qa/ is not a content board. It is not a shitposting board. It is not an entertainment board. It has a very narrow purpose, and that is to be a conduit between the staff and the userbase to report concerns, to ask questions about the site, and to ask questions about technical issues. It is not a board for fun posting. It does not exist to amass posts. It is not a board where "activity" is desired in the way in which it is desired on the main board, /sp/ and so on. It does not matter if this is a slow or "dead" board, because it was not intend to be posted on unless there was a need. Posting on this board is desired if and only if there is an actual purpose to the posting that relates to the purpose of the board. That is, post only if you have an issue, if there is something about the site you really want to know, if you have a suggestion to improve the site, or something along those lines. Posting just to increase the number of posts reduces the functionality of this board by cluttering it, and shows a contempt for the actual purpose of outreach to solve problems.

It's like calling tech support or the IT department just to chitchat or bullshit. That is not what IT is there for, they are not there to be friends, please hangup and leave the lines open for people who actually have problems that need to be addressed. If you want to bullshit with coworkers, bullshit with your actual coworkers.

And for all of that, I sympathized with you and would not have deleted the thread myself, hence why I asked the staff member who deleted it why they deleted it. I was sympathetic, until your blatant act of disrespect and contempt by remaking the exact same thread after being told it was deleted because it was off-topic. What the actual fuck anon? For some reason, you pretended like you were going to remake the thread so it would comply with the board's topic, but instead you made exactly the same thread with the same title and OP image, just reordering the wording of the one sentence of text in the body of the post. And you did all of that almost immediately after it was confirmed that it was deleted by a member of staff for being off topic. Jesus Anon, I was on the fence about whether your thread should have been allowed, but then you had to childishly and impetuously defy the staff in a "you can't tell me what to do!" stunt. No, I don't think the staff member did the right thing in not capcoding in the reply despite obviously claiming to be staff, and I thought more elaboration in the reply was merited. But damn, you were right onto "fuck the rules, I do what I want" before I could even drive home from work and buying a pizza. That pissed me off, and I did not care before.

And now let me address the Corndog thread. Did you notice the thread was dated to 2 years ago? That thread was made two years ago, back when May had a real majority in the House of Commons, seven months before the last Jedi was released. I have lived in 4 different cities in two states for 10+ weeks at each location, and am now living in a 5th city, since that thread was last posted in. The last post in that thread was made before I ever came onto mlpol staff. It was made almost a year before the staff member who deleted your thread came onto staff. My point is, that thread is fucking old and a lot of shit has changed since then, and it is not clear that it would be given the same pass today as it was way back when it was posted. Besides the age, there are two reasons that thread is less obnoxious as a shit post than the "post in this thread every time you visit" thread. First, that thread was a self aware parody of how the /qa/ board of 4chan, which, like this board, was intended as a means of communication with the community, was taken over by a bunch of entitled squatters who made vapid and inane posts. Second, that thread didn't encourage daily shitposting in it, which would keep it at the top of the page and slowly undermine the purpose of the board.

The fact that you had to find threads that were two years old in order to have examples of shitposting kind of proves that shitposting on /qa/ has been rare, and far more an exception than the norm.

Don't act entitled to shitpost. We understand wanting to post fun things, but acting like an entitled dick about it, and childishly remaking the exact same thread immediately after you are told it was deleted for being off-topic while also lying about changing it to make it topical, just alienates any sympathy we would have for your position.

>remaking the exact same thread after being told it was deleted because it was off-topic
I specifically made sure to change the wording of the thread to ensure it included a definitive issue about the board and opened a topic for conversation. After it was deleted a second time, this time with a ghost of an explation, I did not see it fit to make it again. Since the thread was deleted without the staff in question saying why it was deleted or what particular rule it broke, I, who had no real information from my standpoint, I figured the thread would be compliant with the rules if I changed the wording to make it more appropriate, but that was later revealed to not be the case.
As for the intent of the thread, it was just a casual attempt to increase user participation on the board, since the similar threads on /cyb/, /sp/, and /a/ seemed to bolster posting on those boards in the slightest bit. Since it worked on the other threads, I thought it would do the same here, since community participation is actually a topic I consider to really be important. If such a thread is against restrictions, then I'm glad to comply.

I feel like addressing this part, just because it leaves a bad taste in my mouth..
First of all, 4cuck's /qa/ board was hardly ever intended to be a meta board, despite its name. It was reborn from the ashes of /q/ as Moot's parting "gift" to the site he abandoned. It didn't turn to shit because it was "taken over" by /jp/sies; it was left to rot and fester by mods who didn't care about the community, let alone their opinions. The "questions and answers" rebranding felt more like a sarcastic remark, because 4chan's /qa/ was filled with Anon's asking questions, and never, ever receiving answers; and occasionally a place where Hiroshimoot tested his site codes.
/qa/ was a garbage dump of a hidden board where Anons were commonly left to scream at a virtual wall until they got tired and gave up. Only the angriest shitposters ever gave it a chance, thinking if they screamed, and that's how this community was first reformed after the original /mlpol/ board froze.
I remember visiting 4chan's /qa/ for two consecutive days only twice in the past decade. The first time was when /pol/'s /rwss/ thread was shoahed, causing a horde of angry /pol/acks to flood in with complaints about compromises in moderation (which persisted long enough for one of the mods to get fired). The second time was when /mlpol/ was shut down, and all of us who knew and loved the board flooded in and demanded change, too angry to care that our pleas were falling on death ears. Both of times, I remember being greeted by the "locals": those scriptfagging, botspamming, corndog-worshipping troglodytes who squatted there like gypsies because none of the dozen weeb-shitposting boards on 4chan were specific enough to suit their autistic habits, acting liked they owned the board because they alone used it for anything but meta; those were the entitled faggots who acted like they were the "real" 4chan, responding with rude and irrationally hostile remarks to anyone who came there with a real issue, with repeated comments like "delet /pol/" or "go back there".
Now, I get it if it's desirable to mitigate shitposting on what is supposed to be a serious meta board, but to compare what was an honest attempt to increase user activity to those prickly, entitled, moeblob-spamming weebs we all came together loathing feels a bit misguided. Nobody here thinks how those cave-NEETs behaved was ever acceptable, or that shitposting all over the meta board would ever be okay; I just thought the site could possibly benefit from /qa/ showing up on the overboard maybe once every few days, and that was the end of it.

5. /vx/ is the board for that. It’s not expressly in the name, but it’s a /v/ board, /x/ board, and /tg/ board all in one. Also there’s a dice function site-wide allowing anons to roll values.
There’s two methods. In the email field type “dice xdy (with any modifiers). The second is in the comment section in []’s type xdy, again with modifiers. The red result is the e-mail field, and both rolls are 1d20+5.

Where exactly are rules 1 and 2?
Anonymous
No.4912
>>4911
Rules 1 and 2 were just as with 4chan.
Do not talk about, and do not talk about, /mlpol/. Since going off-site however, rules 1 and 2 have been stricken, as our method and mode of operation must necessarily change in order to ensure a future for white ponies. Hence, it is no longer a rule to not talk about /mlpol/. It is assumed that users won't be retarded about it - discretion is always a plus - but attracting users to the site necessitates mentioning it.

Yes exif data is removed from images and other files as good as possible. As per the About section of Options "Metadata in files are removed using custom code and TagLib with ExifTool as fallback. * There is no way to guarante that all metadata will be completely removed from a file."

>>5225
I will look into a way to make Base64 strings/urls not turn into header, or a fallback that works as a workaround. As of now sadly there is no good workaround (that won't break links.
One way you can do it is to add a empty bold or spoiler etc. in between the equal signs =[ b ][ /b ]= (without spaces) and you can make them that way Base64== Base64==

Why is there no dedicated pone discussion board? I understnad the point of mlpol but I dont really see the bandwagon effect of getting pony lovers on board without a place they can go to keep their generals in easy reach. I like the idea of pone discussion happening in pol but gore, political horror, and etc dont really mesh well with comfey equestrian fantasy >green

>>5327
If you're talking about /pol/ generals that's understandable, but not only is what I'm talking about a whole different board, the purpose of the generals makes sense, it's there to create small communities who will act as audiances for the posting of >green., and a repository for previous green that can be easily shared for new users. I think generals are kind of shit, but without them you don't get this kind of regular content, not ever.

Without this drip feed of OC, /mlp/ would have died years ago.

>fuck anyone that likes ponies and creates oc
Easy there tiger, that's not what anon said. Its Hearth's Warming, so I'll spoonfeed.
A separate /pone/ board would be redundant. The first (third) rule addresses the permissibility of greens, oc, etc in letter and in spirit. If anons want ponies without any politics, /mlp/ is still a thing, as well as plenty of other boards and sites.
But /mlp/ went off the rails long ago, and rules 9/11 (inside jeorb!) address that too, specifically targeting the redundant nature of /mlp/. The desire of those who came from 4chan - not exclusively those who founded and developed /mlpol/ - was to eliminate or restrict that redundancy as much as equinely possible. In fact, theres an argument to be made that the overwhelming majority of 4chan (across the boards) is redundant; if one wants redundancy those places still exist too.
/mlpol/ is not those places. This isnt to say that none of /mlpol/ is redundant, but a decided effort is made to minimize its redundancy.
Ponies and politics is a very niche interest group that isnt for everyone. Everyone is welcome (barring anons who behave unacceptably), but not everyone wants to be here and the site is specifically not trying to cater to everyone, and (no offense) especially not those who want to change the board/culture/spiritwithout grasping it first and participating participating in and around second.

The /mlpol/ board is slow enough that any general is not likely to fall off the board, and will remain in the first few pages provided there is at least some activity in the thread/general. We've hosted Anonfilly for three years now, and have had OC production threads and many pony threads before. We still do. /mlpol/ is for ponies and politics both. If you happen to be a fan of one but not the other, make a thread for what you are interested in.

>pone discussion doesn't go well with gore and political horror
You could just as easily say "my thread doesn't go well next to inflation threads/slave pony general/whatever other thread coexists in the /mlp/ catalog that I don't like." It's rather silly to complain about the existence of other threads in the catalog you will never read, because you weren't going to click on them anyways. Furthermore, we don't have gore on /mlpol/, and if any exists it's in tiny corners.

No contest

Likewise
Anon, what we are offering here is an /mlp/ (and /pol/)alternative but with good reason, all of /mlp/ is not desired. There is a line, and while I certainly dont speak for everyone, we feel that /mlp/ crossed it long ago. There are a number of (((agendas))) that are quite permissible to promote on /mlp/, for starters (trannies, gays, etc). It isnt that no one is allowed to be trans or gay on /mlpol/, but the normalization and promotion of those agendas will be thoroughly btfo if they arise. Those are only two examples.
Though it wasnt referenced, there are plenty of elements of /pol/ that will not be tolerated on /mlpol/. The key concept of 'alternative' is that it isnt the same, nor is trying to be. There are elements of both, but there is also a very necessary filtering of the elements of both which - your words, not mine - caused 4chan to become horrible even before their mods became adversarial and shills of every variety were granted largesse.
IF there were to be a /pone/ board, it would come of necessity and mass demand, because the resources already available had proven insufficient.
4/mlpol/ was a beautiful thing and it taught many invaluable lessons about friendship. A separate /pone/ board would do a disservice to that legacy.
You're effectively saying "Yeah, ponies and politics are alright, but wouldnt it be great if it was JUST ponies (and thereby JUST politics)?"
If that were to occur (and if I were in Vegas, that's not where my money would be), it's a very long way off at best.

No those are your words. I don't see any problem with free speech. I consider it a severe problem to quash dissenting opinions. The reason 4chan is so fucked is because they have been bought by the deep state and actively use moderation to silence the websites natural immune system.
>You are basically saying that
Two can play at this false dichotemy. You are effectively saying /mlpol/ has no appeal if both /pol/ and /mlp/ exist separately.
The idea is not a dedicated pone board, but a dedicated green board. I'd appreciate it if you didn't swerve on what I'm even suggesting and bringing up this shit.

The other person was suggesting that you don't want any boards that would overlap with mlp. You didn't seem to be disagreeing.
As for what it can do that mlpol doesn't do; I already said as much, capture the remaining mlp audience. Most are quite tired of mods and jewish bullshit, they just want high post counts and to use it as a refuge from black pills. Nevermind the general rule. If you two purposely can't understand that, or can and just don't want to, I won't further push. I never expected to get my way as is.

If you want dedicated green threads you can do it! I know you can. It can be right here on /mlpol/ it doesn't require a whole 'nother board. The boards already here capture a wide array of interests. Dedicated greentext is a nice thing,
We have writefag threads, on multiple parts here. If you think it can be done then do it. The Rust Shackleford thread green is great.
I'm not seeing that necessity. There exists filtering amd what have you here. Nearly all posts aren't nigger tier. Expending outside of one's comfort zone is good in the right places.
You know who makes greens (You) do. I've seen it with my own eyes. A subpar doughy thread without the heart and soul of Anons simply won't last. /mlp/ have been going through a routine it's a familiar one, but that isn't needed here. If anyone has a damn good post it'll be seen by everyone and as a pinnacle of content.
/mlpol/ has both and are not mutually exclusive, and is better from this synthesis. Two seemingly polar sides from a far away perspective, but the common ground is so near and dear and so similar are the core both complement the other.

I was a regular before they where shoaed. I know how both the people in the thread acted and the board as a whole did. It and tf are the tranny laughing stock of the board.
>You can always be the change you want to see
Competing against this site isn't something I am interested in doing but it's always an option I know. maybe when I know about more about server hosting and have some cashflow. /mlp/ needs a home away from the (((mods))). weather you like or not, care or not, its never going to be directly mixed with political news. That is a based idea but it does not appeal to every horsefucker.

Hard times make strange bedfellows. This is my second post in relation to this discussion.
>Competing against this site isn't something I am interested in doing
I'm saying post the /mlp/ part of /mlpol/ here.
4chan is by all means technically not dead, and there is still the apolitical here. All I am saying is make a thread on /mlpol/ the board and that's all.
>4chan refugees and the 'nonexistent' alternative
That's what /mlpol/ is, transcending the trappings of moot and gook moot and the murky depths.
>I was a regular before they where shoaed. I know how both the people in the thread acted and the board as a whole did. It and tf are the tranny laughing stock of the board.
All I know is /mlpol/ Anonfilly, and the archived greens right here.
For general 4chan users this has the boards to handle nearly every topic. The demand for a /po/ origami can be squished with /mlpol/'s /a/, maybe /vx/ and music can be analyzed posted in /üb/ or /mlpol/, /vx/, even /cyb/ if applicable.
I'm not seeing the issue. If politics is the issue then the whole point is for discussion and points to be made. If someone doesn't even want to confront that then so be it, but it'll be there for those that take notice.
Plus there is one thing 4chan doesn't have.

I've been monitoring /filly/ since they migrated. Whether the fillies are trannies or not, they're not pushing an agenda. Unless you want to insinuate that it's a tranny htp (that's human to pony, since you seem a bit slow) agenda, which is absurd on its face.

That is indeed the problem, you are saying but you aren't listening.
>that's what mlpol is
It isn't, by vote of the majority of mlp not being here.
>All I know is the stuff of anon filly right here
The opening thread talks about wishing to be the little filly, ie the old wishing to be the little girl. It's not exactly cryptic. No one there is dumb enough to shill for actually trans right bullshit, but there is a difference between not being a political demagogue and being a healthy heterosexual male with a firm identity.

>if politics is the issue then they should just argue
Why would they argue? they would just continue to live happily in their concentration camp on mlp. no matter how you may wish it was different, these people are not soldiers. they can lend us aid, and we can shelter them in return from tyranny, but what they want is something you/this board is refusing to sell them, and so far the only one who is doing so, 4chan, is deliberately taking advantage of that monopoly.

You may refuse to on any grounds you like, but the issue is not with me, I am not "refusing to see the light", you are refusing to cast it on a whole group of people who are in darkness. If you can be satisfied with that then be my guess, but don't look at me as if me posting some green will magically make political threads appeal to the vast majority of users.
>>5341

>point me in the direction of the propaganda.
Nice goalpost moving. define what you even mean by propaganda, because it's obvious to every casual observer without a hint of an agenda and dog in the fight would find a lot in common with people fantasizing about being a sexed up 9-12 year old filly with trannies. If you want to split hairs around this definition like a jew you wont find a partner in me. Name your requirements blatantly. I'll wait.

>not at all
yes that is exactly what you bring up every single time.
>You can always use the other sites
You are literally arguing at this point against admitting you don't want to offer any overlaping service to these boards and then blatantly admitting that is your desired intention not to do so.
Sorry but this is the final straw. I wish this board had Id's but even without them I will do my best not to read any more jewish tripe from your posting. It should be obvious to anyone that your only goal in this topic is to get into an entirely unessiary shit fit because admitting to the no frills truth hurts your ego. You cant bare to admit it from a position of openness and integrity so you hide behind the tactics of a jew after I had laid down my arms and just asked my piece openly in the first place. Go fuck yourself.

I hope the fact that you mention moving goalposts isnt lost on anyone. You obviously have an axe to grind, and your posting history suggests that you're either a newfag or using a VPN. In either case you really need to lurk moar if you think that what the majority of 4/mlp/ wants/thinks about /mlpol/ counts for shit.
No one is stopping anyone from posting greens except for the posters themselves. No, we're not making a board exclusively for greens. Deal with it.
You're entitled to whatever delusions you're interested in entertaining, but the evidence is overwhelming in spite of your refusal to acknowledge and admit it, and psychological transference will do you no good in the long run.

What is the whole point of this then?
That I in my generous glorious self shall enlighten those poor deluded fools or something by force? People don't like being directly herded.
I'm saying as a product and service /mlpol/ has everything. I'm also saying that they don't want a tatse of /mlpol/ because it has features to weed out malicious posts.
/mlpol/ has conducted fishing expeditions, advertising campaigns if you will. 80% of 4chan /mlp/ didn't want that and are still content with that is there right now.
As a product they find the featuress of /mlpol/ distasteful, it narrows down personality types and other factors. /mlpol/ is self enhancing.
If they wanted just 4chan but without the administration abuse that's fine, but those that left have. To various chans.
4chan is getting an influx of 'free' advertising from the general populace. The quality and userbase is shifting like demographics and importing from shit holes.
A big broadcasted image board that is set up to be an 'alternative' or successor to 4chan have met ends.

I think the fear is that creating a /pone/ board will spread out the users and end up with two really slow boards. /overboard/ can probably alleviate this a bit, but /mlpol/ don't have the biggest userbase and creating a /pone/ board might be a gamble that could end up in even slower participation if it don't pan out.
