Why was the server down moments ago?

Good afternoon Admin

I have some questions regarding mlpol's setting, they are as follows:-

Maximum static image file size in bytes
Maximum webm file size in bytes
Maxmum mp4 file size in bytes
Maximum Character limit per post
Bump Limit
Image Limit

Also details on of that info is different between boards.

Thanks guys.


>Maximum static image file size in bytes
>Maximum webm file size in bytes
>Maxmum mp4 file size in bytes
55 * 1024 * 1024 = 57671680 (each file)
Can add that max size (width x height) of images in pixels is (10,000 x 10,000)
>Maximum Character limit per post
>Bump Limit
/1ntr/, /qa/, /sp/, /ub/ has 350
/mlpol/ has 700
/vx/ has 450
>Image Limit
5 (file limit, image/video/pdf/etc, per post)

>Also details on of that info is different between boards.

Only bump limit is different between boards (as noted above)


Thanks Admin

How many images can one thread contain in total?

Are images/video/zip/pdf files the only ones supported or are other formats supported to? It will effect the way that thumbnails are handled.

How hard would it be to supply pirate boxes, refurbished old laptops with Linux installed, meme berry pis, and other open source technology in the store? A lot of our users could use these devices, and we may even be able to attract new users by selling them.

If multiple images are posted and spoilered the spoilerimage overlaps and you cant target specific pictures
Anybody having the same problem?

also is there a way to spoiler specific pictures and not just all?

As well as the above, spoiler isn't specified in the thread's JSON file.

This makes it difficult to programmatically detect if images are spoilered, this issue is compounded because thumbnails aren't generated for spoilered images (which would make sense).

Ideally the "spoiler" boolean variable would be output in JSON, is it possible someone could look at this?


Admin/developer is it possible to get spoiler added to the JSON files or is that out of the question? It would be very useful.


I will look at it, and implement.

Sorry for the delay. Spoiler flag should now be present in the json files.

It was offline as hour ago, what happened? Also post in this thread if the site goes offline again to make use out of the thread.


Yes unfortunately we had a 45 minutes downtime because auto-renewal for unknown reason didn't go through. One of the staff did an emergency payment just to get the site up again, and Atlas will look into it when he is awake. Hopfully this wont happen again.


Okay. Thank you for letting us know.

I keep getting this error message when I try to post
testing to see if the problem comes up here too.


Not sure why you would get that error.
Some things you can try before doing the usual (have you tried to turn the computer off and on again).
Try clearing cookies and/or Hard reload of page Ctrl+F5
You should be able to post on other boards when you can post on this.
>if this don't help do you have more info on what you are posting, is it with or without image (just so we can try to replicate the error)?

I was replying to the /sg/ thread. I've been following /sg/ here and on 4chan more closely than usual recently because of the recent escalation over Syria. I replied to some anon asking about why 4chan is down at the moment. (Also I was pissed because there was a good pikmin thread going on /v/ last night and now we can't continue what had so far been a really excellent discussion) I attached a pikmin photo (pic related) to the post, but it doesn't matter because it wouldn't let me post regardless of image. I dunno why it'll let me post here though.

The exact wording of my attempted post was:


probably just maintenence. The last time there was a server problem gookmoot didn't fix it for nearly 2 days because he was "asleep". So 4chan might be down for anywhere from a few more minutes to a few more days. Goddamnit, I just wanted to talk about Pikmin on /v/ is all.


Strange. I'll do some investigating why this is happening. Have you tried other browser just to rule out the possibility it is a browser thing.


testing with Firefox. It just started giving me that posting error on this board to with my usual browser.


Can't say I know way you would get this error, but searching the net it could be the Browsers DNS cache, or a Browser cookie that causes it.

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.
>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.


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.


This was originally going to be a much longer reply addressing more concerns, but I have cut it down

>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.


I would prefer this to deleting flags altogether.


I think it's an option both proponents and opponents of the current flag system can agree on.

Some applications intermittendly can't handle the feed, including Internet Explorer.


Not sure what the problem is.
From what I can see is that IE, Edge, Chrome, Opera don't always load the whole file. But if you do an "view-source:" opening of the file in Chrome and Opera the file loads fully.
This problem don't seam to exist on FireFox.

This site seems to have a problem with Arabic Script
Note in the screencap:

Mesraba #

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.

Testing scripts below. The word is "Test"

Let's talk about board quality.
13 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


For a period of time, threads suspected to be troll threads were moved. Of course, these can just be deleted outright. A new rule like "do not make extremely low quality threads as your first by that IP" would resolve any issue.
The mod who more or less runs that board is never on at the same time I am, making it difficult to ask, but probably the bump limit could be lowered to 250 or 150.


The bump limit on /sp/ should be lowered to 250.


File: 1520521526431-0.png (143.19 KB, 1024x1011, 1415869__safe_artist-colon….png)

Please don't move off-topic threads to /sp/ anymore unless they already have a significant number of replies/content.
Just because a thread is """belongs on /sp/""" doesn't mean it needs to be preserved there.
As it is, the catalog is full of troll threads from the main board that will never be replied to again.

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)?

So after looking at the "customize formating" options I noticed one that was [ code ].
What is it used for?

>pic unrelated


Don't mind me, just testing esoteric formatting
for something in whatever-the-fuck; do
i don't fucking know
[align|centre]No love for Commonwealth spelling, eh devs?[/align]
[align|center]That's cool, the burger way is acceptable, too[/align]
[align|right]These formatting features are really cool, provided that they work[/align]


[align=centre]It may help if I actually read the config.php syntax correctly, holy shit me[/align]
Still, at least I can see find this stuff

If this works, you faggots in the dev team have my thanks
