I'd like to officially make a complaint against the Site Staff of MLPOL and it's administration in regards to General Moderation.

Over the course of the past few weeks (months, really) it has come to my attention that the general moderation quality is, regretably, diminishing.

Besides the general problem of dwindling board quality due to a lack of action and the overall quantity of non-shitpost disciplination, what concerns me currently most is the act of banning itself.

I have come to the opinion that the act of banning in itself is no longer sufficient to properly protect the site and the community from undesireables, in particular repeat offenders.

Hereby I urge the site staff to implement features and/or changes in policy to effciently ward of personnel incapable of upholding a bare minimum of social decency. If necessary, by more drastic means than an infinite permaban that can be undone with the reset of the router.

Thank You for Your attention and I am looking forward of this problem getting properly taken care of in the near future.

So, no. I reject pigeonholing people, even as a social complex. Let the lefties be lefties even. I know that if we start pigeonholing, I might be pigeonholed eventually.

It's late at night, but the hell with it, I'll try to formulate a short response to this.

>Which made me question if this site regards itself as anything but a big shitposting circlejerk. If i really wanted to have just that, there is plenty of other sites who offer the same opportunity in better quality. I thought we were having Nazi ponies.

I'm sorry, what? Were you even around for the initial merger?
Well, allow me to jog your memory: https://archive.4plebs.org/mlpol/
The original /mlpol/ was almost nothing but shitposting. It had way, way more degenerate threads than we do now. And yet, throughout all of that, the initial community still thrived, despite all the odds, and survived despite it's eventual deletion.
Sure, it's different now than it was then, but that fun-loving, shitpost-appreciating core portion of it's DNA hasn't gone anywhere. If you think it's some recent phenomenon that's somehow killing the site, you clearly haven't been paying attention.

>MLPOL.NET as a site never had the traffic its predecessor had.

And? I'd prefer a small but high quality userbase, over a large and poor quality one, any day of the week.
The tone here has always been relaxed, going at a slow cruise, and - at least for me, personally - I quite like it like that.
Pushing for more aggressive growth is precisely what caused the shitshow that is nu-4/pol/ to begin with. Slow and steady wins the race.

>I don't believe /mlpol/ is right wing neither left wing
We are right wing. That is why we let the left speak. Either to try and win them over or because we believe in freedom of speech. Some of us were once left till we went to /pol/ to argue otherwise.
>>4170
>The original /mlpol/ was almost nothing but shitposting
I stand by that /mlpol/ was like [s4s] but with a /pol/ and /mlp/ theme and the /pol/ and /mlp/ threads that both boards wanted in between. I don't think I'd call that shitposting but guess that is dependent on definitions which is a bit subjective.

 No.4173

I don't really care for the politics of board management, but I'm going to have to disagree with you, OP.
The only doom posting that should be going on imo is the show being shit and getting replaced.
In my opinion, we need a new show, or to branch out to just cartoons/anime in general.
Honestly I don't care if the site is left, right or central. As long as users actually listen to what people have to say without plugging their ears and screaming. Freedom of speech is important.
Both sides of the coin are required otherwise you become a circlejerk, which you're apparently opposed to.
I think the moderation team is doing a fine job.
We've allowed filly threads in, which are imo pretty fucking degenerate, but they're human too (even if they wish they were the filly) and they deserve to have their voice heard.
I don't think we're right, left or central. We're just a safehaven where horsefuckers and polacks can speak their mind without being shot down by the mods.

>>4157
>One of my biggest problems with MLPOL is the lack of transparency of the Mod Staff
Well, I will say that I agree with this. The staff is not as transparent as I would like it to be.

>The site has become largely stagnant

I believe that the news of mlpol.net's death has been greatly exaggerated. Many forget that from the middle of May until the middle of August mlpol.net managed consistently 300 posts per day, not often going above or below that. Since the month of January, mlpol.net has consistently managed several days per week in which it receives 400 or more posts, and is above 350 on most days. This is besides activity on boards that did not even exist over the summer which may increase activity by hundreds more posts. If you had said this in November, when the site was sometimes receiving only 180 posts a day on the main board, then I could agree. But mlpol.net's activity is higher than at most points in its history. In fact, the day of the most posts in the history of the website came in January of this year on the day of the 4chan cup, with 1500 or more posts.

No, this website is not as well known or advertised as I would like. I would like Youtube advertisements, derpibooru advertisements, 8chan advertisements, and so forth. But activity is not terminal.

This has been one of the most agreed solutions to the ongoing "flad problem" (see >>3641 ), and I really think it would work.
The issue off flags has been brought up time and time again, but nothing has been done (or properly discussed) about it. I think giving OPs the option to hide flags on new threads could be a vast improvement, and a look on how threads could operate without flags on the main board.
We can already choose to disable IDs, and that was a great improvement for long-lasting threads.

This site seems to have a problem with Arabic Script

That Mesraba and the Arabic script after the hashtag show up in the post box, but when posted, the Arabic script disappears altogether!

However, there is no problems with scripts in other languages
Even KIKERUNES are fine, but only the Arabic script is unsupported on this site.

How possible is it to make ID's optional for a thread? ID's were originally used on /pol/ to help facilitate debate. However, for most boards there are no ID's, let alone flags. Of /mlp/ like threads on /mlpol/ can ID's be turned off? In an example, put a toggle on when making a new thread to either allow or disallow ID's (with leaving ID's the default)?

 No.3641[Reply]

We're a small community to begin with and so having flags that are given to individuals upon request is an equivalent to namefagging. We bully namefags to stop when its inappropriate but we don't do the same with flagfags since there is an assumption that its not the same. In all honesty it is, last I checked no one else uses the vril flag besides vril, which causes him to become a namefag in everything but name.

As a small community we have problems with anonymity as it is, I can see which anons are which much more easily because of it. Am I suggesting removing individual request flags? Maybe, though there are other ways to fix this problem that hurts the core of a chan, that is anonymity. I'd say the other easy options are doing what /pol/ does, that is allows anons to select their flag before posting, that way any anon can use the vril flag whenever he feels like it. This has its own set of problems though, however I'd say if we don't address this problem we'll likely continue having problems with users discounting or liking what one anon has to say over another just based on previous posts, something that we all subconsciously will do if we don't allow ourselves to be anons in every way that we possibly can.

Being able to upload multiple files in a post is great, especially on mobile, but it can be incredibly frustrating to have spent 15 mins finding five quality pics to contribute to a thread only to get the message "That file already exists in this thread!".
If possible, could the error message tell us which file is the duplicate? They have something similar on 4chins.

There is literally no rule against moe or anime posting on /sp/, don't know where people are getting the idea that it's not allowed. Since /sp/'s inception there has only been one ban there that I can recall, it was only for a couple of hours and I honestly don't even remember what it was for. /sp/ was originally conceived to be in the spirit of old /b/, which for the most part means that if you're not violating sitewide rules, breaking US or Canadian law or being a colossal faggot, it's pretty hard to get banned from there.

Also, to settle the debate, moeposts tend to fluctuate between 68-71% football on average, with the exception of Yui Hirasawa, who is 86% football. The cutoff point for acceptability for /sp/ is 61% football. Soccer is forbidden.

Moeshit isn't forbidden on /sp/, it was just ironically frowned upon in reference to the great /qajp/ war.
