Could /mlpol/ Benefit From A Blue Pony Board?
Posters in this community have brought of various ways to make the site more attractive to horsefuckers and content creators. One reccomended idea has been to introduce a blue board for pony content.
Is this idea worth trying?
What could the benefits be?

Express your thoughts.

Hey hey, ponies.jpg
>>6806
>I'd like to know where you got this information that polacks are driving ponyfags away from this site? That's something you could give me some citations on. You don't have to believe me, but I a ponyfag have never felt like a second-class citizen.
not that anon but it's not fucking hard to tell based on the threads that make it to the top and see the most activity, and the complete lack of OC being generated here, as well as the fact that when 4chan unbanned certain groups who made a home here in this website, like anon filly, they go right back to 4chan instead of remaining here. It's obvious to me, even without numbers, that if people are rushing back to 4cuck for their next you instead of here where people actually supposedly respect them, theres a fundamental difference between what content is obviously important here.

Ironic considering you are the faggots who keep seething and screaming kike at this criticism. you got angry at me for turning that sword deservedly back at you, and here you are doing it again and riding the hyperbole train. So I'll give you another form of measurement. My ideals suddenly have appeal. it's very obvious to me that I'm a powerless halfwit at best who tends to school on people mostly because they are lazy or don't do their due dilligence. As a result, I rarely get a following, yet people here are giving my idea some merited defense, and why not, you make my argument for me. Lashing out at other horsefuckers and calling them kikes. I'm hardly free of such sin, but I'm not the one pretending I'm an ubermench fighting off the jews. I'm a fucking retard who likes tiny horses and at best turning kike jewery around with meme magic and reverse uno cards. At worst all I want to do is read some fun escapist fantasy stuff to recharge instead of getting embroiled in another 2 hour long b8 thread. Here you are talking big about tradition and not feeling like a second class zigger but you aren't listening to other people. and all I had to do to get them to consider the idea was yell into the void one more time and have you retards attack me.

I'll get back to this but I greentexted what I thought was an intresting contradiction. I don't care if you insult me or insinuate that I'm a kike. But; maybe I'm wrong and you aren't OP for both this thread and the related thread on /qa/, I just assumed; my point was that that thread talks about how anons reacted strongly negatively towards this thread but I didn't. I just disagreed and then you reacted that strongly towards me.
Seems like that whinny-thread was unnecessary.

I'm "OP" in the sense that I am the one who you usually find taking pot shots at lotus/mlpol mods for turning down this idea already. but It wasn't my idea to make this thread and I was surprised to see it was made and gained as many posts as it did. I don't personally think this idea would ever work without them being fully on board with it rather than doing it grudgingly.

I agree with this sentiment.
But it's not like I'm really against entertaining the idea in my mind, I just don't like the hard rhetoric. There might be merits to this split but my points on why haven't been answered in a satisfying way because I've been mostly attacked. When I'm personally attacked for criticizing things, it makes me question those people's intentions.

If we could have a civil conversation about the future of mlpol without this shitflinging it would help us avoid making bad decisions. I could be pro split but I'm not convinced and the way pro-people have straight-up ignored my points (Won't it be just another /a/? for example.), makes me inhale through my teeth and question their trustworthiness. On that note, I don't like how you simultaneously emphasize the importance of doing this but also refer to it as a small tweak.

first of all, grow some awareness of your own shitflinging, I already admit to flinging shit, but then, I flung shit because I am frustrated by knowing the mods are basically unmovable in this position, so I never had anything to lose by being polite, since I already lost everything by being polite. Second, Understand that dialogue even with the presence of IDs carries the stigma of the ancestor, if you go to bat and start talking about how you think other people are acting like kikes, then get upset when called out for the kike behavior, you can't there after say "well that wasn't me who originally called you kikes" you rode in under the banner of one side of this brawl or the other, without taking any effort to distinguish yourself. Thirdly, what point are you making that you feel hasn't been addressed? I've gone out of my way to address all of them. I don't know what /a/ is if you aren't referring to 4chan/a/ but if I had a guess this site tried an /a/ at some point and it failed? If so that's exactly why I said multiple times in this and the other thread that doing this is pointless as a temporary test the waters thing. You need patience and tenacity. People involved need to want to believe it will work and make inroads to make it happen. Otherwise yes, you will get a barren board that closes in 6 months of inactivity.
>small tweak important decision
It's small for the people who don't care and important for the people who do care, much like a mcdonalds pony toy is worthless to 99% of people but would be important to me. though I'm not the person who used such language, because I don't believe that what I proposed would be small, just that the longer we wait, the harder it will be in the future.

Finally, breath through your nose, it actually enhances brain function.

It's funny how you can post something like this but remain steadfastly ignorant to the great lack of /pol/ type threads on /mlp/. Yes, you are right, we don't like change, and for most of us, having the top 20-30 threads be mostly political is too much change. I genuinely think a GR15 free /pol/ is a great idea, and I've trained myself to the point where I only come here for /pol/ related things, but I definitely do not come here for horse content. It's practically barren of it.

Sorry, unlike you I'm not a huge faggot who gets his rocks off by other people having a bad time, I just want to play with my horsies without seething jews and whites crying over some shekels. I saw plenty of opportunities where /mlp/ was shit and /mlpol/ could do it way better and people would have arrived at our doorstep, but it's useless if only one faggot sees that future, the rest of you want to eternally screech and doompaul yourselves so yes, it will never work. I just feel bad that apparently my ideas where more popular than I thought since I know some horsefuckers seemed to agree with me.

No retard, what I want is a movement to take as many users from /mlp/ as possible and get the most creative board out of the thumb of the NSA and us military, and in doing so, create a fun space where I can play with ponies and not be harassed by jews and then banned for calling them out.
>>6826
Although I did think for a while in response to this thread being made at all what it would be like if I compromised and offered the idea of making a >green focused anime/pony hybrid board in the vein of /a/mlp/ with /mlp/ being the dominant board culture, your statement here >>6818 underlines the reason why I eventually discarded the idea. Branding does matter a lot when trying to get users to use a site, and I don't feel very many horsefuckers would come to the site specifically because of >nohooves. In the end, it's too much change, even if I would really like it.

So in other words no, I'm not just thinking about what I would personally like most, and no I don't want to go post alone on /sp/. If you can't figure that out after this many posts I'll call you out for at least being a troll.

It is understandably, but you should begin at least with a "safe" place for you, in this case /sp/ is not a bad choice. If it doesn't grow, you will be the sole responsible.

since this was the change I'll make it clear, No, I wont be solely responsible because I don't control the branding or really anything else about it. What kind of low effort jewery is this? It's like saying if I go try and turn a mcdonalds into a hotel I'll be the sole person at fault despite not being allowed to do anything to the decore or make the place not look like a fucking mcdonalds. What is your greater plan by suggesting shit like this? keep seething until you find something you can meme on to ruin the thread? keep getting (you)s from one faggot on /qa/? just following your jewish instincts? I assure you the stakes aren't so high you have to keep filling this thread with your low effort b8 but if you persist I'm just going to hide your ID.

Im gonna take this opportunity to tell the grand story of:

How /a/ came to be

One day, Atlas asked me if he should make an /a/ board. I said (because I was the only staff on/responsive) "Yes".

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how /a/ came to be.
The background is, there were staff who wanted an /a/ board, and staff who were absolutrly vehemently opposed to it, ostensibky because the /a/ board would somehow cause a coup to turn mlpol into nu-4chan or some shit?
Personally, I didnt think the site needed an /a/, but I also thought the people crying about the site being fundamentally changed were off their rocker. So I told Atlas he should.

Funny, the site hasnt gotten taken over by anime. Funny how that all worked out.
Personally, Im opposed to a pony blue board, I simply dont see the point.
All this 'we'll get more /mulp/' posturing neglects a key fact: people go to 4chan (and by proxy, mlp) for (you)s, because theres more people there.
Its why even before Elon bought it, there is 100 to 1 the number of users on twitter vs. Gab or wtfe else.
Anons are creatures of habit, and 4chan is where they go to get their fix.
Anyone else notice how quickly pony porn became less interesting the longer it wasnt prohibited? I mean, its not like there arent what, 5 boorus dedicated to pony everything?
But politics, politics has always been a no-go for a significant majority of the fandom. For many, politics is WHY they seek the escapism of pastel ponies.
I dont oppose a blue pony board because I think it'll change the site at all, I oppose a blue pony board because I dont buy that mulp is gonna suddenly (or even gradually) start migrating if there is one.

As I said, the customer isnt going to buy the product no matter how much of a promotion you give them, they have already made the decision and now they're just seeing what they can grt you to agree to for the social exchange.

this is why I also said it would take a long time and require people be on board. I don't, as you believe, think its pointless, but it definitely can be made pointless by defeatist attitude, ignorant strategy, and pure random chance that comes from risk taking I alluded to in the /mlp/a/ idea.

That said, I want to take a moment to define, not that I haven't, in clearer terms where /mlp/ is different than other boards. mlp is not like /a/, /tv/, /ck/ or the like. It's not a board that's centered around getting replies, but getting OC. Replies are a poormans currency on /mlp/. the real structure of the board is in content creators who give content for the (you)s of the /mlp/ rabble. in other words, unlike with a regular board where no matter how you scoop, you only get the same thing, if you where to turn content creators from the site to this one for any reason and have them come here, the masses would have less choice but to come here since that's where the content is. In the same way all of us put up with platforms like youtube, their individual investment is less important than the influence who creates OC.

There are of course ways to capture non-content creators, such as the people who hate eqg to an autistic degree, but the idea that /mlp/ is a typical board based around a symbol b8ing attention economy is simply not true. /mlp/ is a content creation board first and foremost, and a lot of the content and discussion there is simply time passing, not (you farming). the >green prompt rain dancing is as close as it gets to true farming, and the sheer lack of it on /mlpol/ is, I think, the biggest indication that it is /pol/ without gr15, rather than /mlp/ and /pol/ together as one

I don't have supreme confidence, but I have seen shit shows on /mlp/ by mods cause a massive amount of strife. at the time I came to the staff about creating such a board, the drama was hot, and I believe some of those people could have came here. Right now? It would be a way harder sell. which is also why I said from the beginning that you'd have to wait for people to get fed up. and since this place basically completely rejected the idea for so long, there's a danger that it wont work regardless. Situations like the scruffening, derpibooru, meta and divegrass threads being nuked, specific generals getting targeted. These are all opportunities, but once they are gone, they are gone. anonfilly has a home again, it will be a lot harder to get them to come back. My comments today where not an indication of some new chance or drama either. /mlp/ as of today is fairly stable. Only an acknowledgement that you've missed so many opportunities that occasionally I saw more pony OC being fostered in shitcords and being discussed there, even when those people still use and are from this website. Some how that couple of comments blew up into this. I'm significantly more used to yelling into the void and getting nothing back that I'm just as serious as your question when I say this thread is not what I expected to hear back.

I may at times be an asshole about being ignored, but it's not like I haven't passed up opportunities too, I'm jealous of the site's success and feel like it could have so easily taken some of 4chucks crown at times, but if we began tomorrow I couldn't tell you today an answer to that question that would be satisfactory. the things I do have clear ideas about I already gave; Give anons the ability to delet images in their own threads and be a mini janny. This isn't something I personally like, and for various reasons, if it's unpopular here as an idea, I would be all for not doing it, but I know it would get users specifically because of how autistic these faggots are. They make planning the con threads a huge fucking pain, and they also harrass the rewatch threads. Like I said, This isn't on the same level of advice as getting content creators, but it's an example of an opportunity. for the actual content creators, the thing that comes to mind is a place they would actually get (you)s in. but that's not a definitive plan to snag them at all, just a way to keep the ones we get instead of having them leave the second 4chan gets their act together.

No free lunch.

oh, and for what it's worth. I dont know how popular anime is here, but it seems to be popular among the horsefuckers from here I talked to, so while I don't have any confidence a /mlp/a/ >green board would be a compelling way to steal /mlp/ users, it might be a way to colonize anime with /mlp/ board values, especially since /a/ does not allow /mlp/ board culture, and even fanfiction discussion is nuked from orbit. It isn't really my goal since it's a little too self indulgent of an idea but I can't say I wouldn't like it.

Yeah, let's dissect this.

> if you go to bat and start talking about how you think other people are acting like kikes,
Hmm, was that what I said? Let's have a look shall we.

>>6803
You said this:
<if you replaced horsefuckers with whites you would be called a jew and told to kill yourself immediately.
I said more in context but this is what you're referring to when you said I "started talking about how other people act like kikes":
>Point is, if we're going to start screaming, "You're the real kike," here wouldn't you who wants to change a tradition while defaming the people in it that doesn't want to, be the real kike, mah nigguha.
It ends on period but grammatically should end on a questionmark. It's a rehtorical question to make a point about what you are doing. I didn't say you were a kike but even if I had it would been a response to you insinuating that I use jewish rethoric. I think the comparision falls flat there for you.

But again, I'm not offended about this part, which I also wrote in that post. I just thought it was weird that while there's a thread on /qa/ talking about the paranoia this thread received, you attack me for giving you genuine criticism. Go back over my posts. They are not personal whatsoever before you start and barely afterward either.

I kinda hate how some who are pro split has brunt bridges with me. As I said, I'm not against entertaining this idea but such a thing has to be done in a civilized manner. When I ask for substance and you attack me, it makes me think you have none.

> I don't know what /a/ is if you aren't referring to 4chan/a/ but if I had a guess this site tried an /a/ at some point and it failed? If so that's exactly why I said multiple times in this and the other thread that doing this is pointless as a temporary test the waters thing. You need patience and tenacity. People involved need to want to believe it will work and make inroads to make it happen. Otherwise yes, you will get a barren board that closes in 6 months of inactivity.
We have an /a/. Look at the board bar at the top and then the furthest board to the left. It's been there for years. Your making my point as well. You need content for it aka, "You need patiance and tenacity. People involved need to want to believe it will work and make inroad to make it happen." So content is king and is why mlpol is not as active on pony as /mlp/ create content and there will be people.

Why Anonfilly went back to 4chan had nothing to with politics, I believe. Most of the anonfillies went to discord before they went to us anyway. People complained in our thread that most people spent their time on discord instead of being on the board. When the thread on /mlp/ opened again, those on discord probably migrated there and those here probably left as well. Was this because polacks had harassed them with politics? No. I Lurked that thread from the beginning of it being here till now. Very few political discussions happened on it and most of that was just meming.

So why did the fillies go back to /mlp/ if the mods there are abusive and the polacks here don't bother them? Simple, the same reason you visit /mlp/ because that's where people are. There are more polacks on 4/pol/ still than there are polacks here, hundred precent. Creative people go were they get most attention and so that's where the greens are.

Also, I guess I should address that thinking of this as a brawl is your problem. I'm not at all closed to the idea that we could have a separate board for pony but I'd like to weigh the pros and cons for such a thing. It's a slippery slope to blame me for what other posters have posted that have similar views as me but I suppose I can relate to such a thing.

Again, I don't think your idea has no merits but I don't think it's going to result in what you imagine. I guess it's too late to start over but I genuinely think it would be more beneficial for us both if we could discuss this. Maybe you have some argument that I haven't considered that will make me be pro this split.

The only problem with /a/ is that nobody uses it, tbh. If there were even two regularly-posted threads it would be on par with the other boards. It still gets more traffick than /cyb/.
I was personally of the camp that some of the other April 2017 boards could come back, but since our /sp/ stands for shitposting, /spa/ is kind of off the table.

Right, I dont know why I expected someone so stupid and unself aware to even begin to acknowledge that the criticism instantly resulted in accusations of me being a divide and conquer kike. So yes, I did think pretty carefuly about what I said, I gave you exactly what you fucking deserved. Is that clear enough for you? or do you have another fantasy to concoct where you're the innocent victim here?

I'm pretty sure all or most of my points of concern have already been stated by other posters, but I'll contribute my thoughts anyways

I am not a fan of adding a new pony-only board at all.

The entire point of /mlpol/ is that it is a merged board. Two different topics come together in synchronicity. Segregating pony and politics is a why-bother that is contrary to the entire idea.

The argument I keep hearing for the segregation is that politics is a downer and black pilled. Have you even been on /mlp/? That board makes /mlpol/ look like radical utopians by comparison. At least a few years ago, you couldn't go anywhere without hearing "oh my God everything good is gone!" It is/was insufferable and was far worse than /mlpol/, at least at the time.

The reason most /mlp/ users don't come here isn't because of politics, it's because of the Social Media Effect. Chan sites, like all social media of any kind, are naturally occurring monopolies, because people want to go where other people already are. Having a board with no politics won't help that. If anything, it means less total activity.

But with all of that said, it isn't necessarily much harm to add an experimental board. I would want it to be more than just "/mlp/ but not owned by a Jap." Maybe make it /safe/ with a ban on doom-posting, or have some kind of theme to it like forced optimism. Maybe call it AFFWF (Aff woof?) for "A Future for White Foals" or something. You can at least have fun with the idea

The decision lies ultimately with staff. It used to be that a specific staff member would take ownership/responibility of whatever board. /vx/ for example, is Lotus' purview, while John Elway - who is Football forevermore, appearing in the guise of a man, but inseparable from either the one True Football or the Denver Broncos, who are themselves Football but on a multitudinal level - has sole and exclusive dominion over Fottball, for he is the Alpha and Omega of Football, supplemented by the storage rooms in space assisting in the housing of all that Football.
Sorry, havent broncoposted in a while.
Returning to the topic, a specific staff member would technically need to do likewise with this new board. Having said, that precious requirement is a bit arbitrary IMO and fosters a 'thats not my board so IDGAF' mentality in some (thats just a general caveat, not aomething directed at anyone in general/particular).
Now, when I say about the decision, I mean it literally. It will likely take more than a handful of anons clamoring to make a sufficiently compelling case, and I say that having personally made dozens of compelling cases.
Not a criticism, but with a few very specific examples, staff does not operate from a very 'quick-to-action' sort of strategy.
Tl;dr. Get comfy, and prepare to politely make your case for a drawn out period of time. Dont insult staff either, they get really mad and oppose you on principal when you do that (yes, even if they have been insulting you extensively prior, and your insults are reactionary/complementary).
>>6875
Technically speaking, unless the code has been ammended, any staff member could make a new board at any time. Literally, a few clicks and a few lines of text. While cumbersome in other ways, there are a goodly number of ways that Pupper's code is quite efficient.
The problem is that any staff member who MIGHT make such a thread in advance of a staff consensus woumd immediately be decided to have 'gone rogue' or any number of other character assassinations.
If you're not getting how UNwelcome it is to be on staff AND decisive, I dont know what to tell you

The idea has been discussed within staff. No one at all thinks it is necessary and it would probably just become another dead board... but at the same time, it doesn't look like there could be too much harm.

If we have a new board, the site owners would probably also need to come up with more money to pay the new people who’d be staffing it. Also, it could be a passing fad that lasts just for a few days because /mlpol/ may not exactly be the type of site that is attractive to many of the people of /mlp/ right now.

>>6920
You can just leave if you expect monetary transactions to take place in the pit of slime.

Honestly, mlpol, as well as any other small chans is just doomed to be slow, why? Because:
>>6866
>of the Social Media Effect. Chan sites, like all social media of any kind, are naturally occurring monopolies, because people want to go where other people already are.

I don't think taking something away is going to bring any more traffic at all.
From my personal experience, having seen this board rise from atlas setting up an HTTP site and an anon calling it a honeypot, there is three problems:

1 - You need a focus to attract people and it has to be compatible with current boards
You wanna attract "traffic" but tell me, what the fuck is traffic?
Zoophiles?
Bronies?
Horsefuckers?
/pol/tards?
You can't attract them all at the same time, no matter what you do. Some groups like ponyfags and /pol/tards naturally repel each-other for many reasons, those who can stand the pony are the true good people but those are fucking rare, hence why the main board has such a small population.
/pol/ is mostly filled with pre-teens and motherfuckers that can't even read two paragraphs before screaming DA JOOZ, of course they wont be able to see past the ponies.

And even if you give a board a focus, like /a/ why would /a/ people post here instead of the much bigger, much older alternative that is 4chin?
4chin is shit, but it is bearable shit, you must give users a reason to post here and not there, and obviously "better mods and community" is not good enough of a reason.

2 - It is a social suicide to be found posting here
I love you guys, i have had some real good arguments here, i learnt a lot on my time posting here and i even made a ton of threads on /ub/ i actually improved my life quite a lot from posting here.
But even if i did, i know no one must ever know i post on /mlpol/ because if there is one thing normies hate is <le evil natzeez> and believe me i don't wanna lose my job because i like having an actual conversation in the political sperging horseforum.

3 - The internet has changed
Face it guys, the only reason 4chin is populated is because it's this "mythical" imageboard that's known to be full of lulz.
Mlpol is nowhere on the map, most people think it was a fun april 1st joke that died April 2nd and those who don't understand mlpol's board culture like this faggot >>6876 simply get confused and don't seem to really care enough to understand why things are the way they are.

Even if the site got traffic, it will most likely be mostly normies that wont stick for long.
The world is moving and imageboards are slowly becoming an archaic thing of the past, people don't understand how they work nor they care to know, they just wanna hop-in, shit and have fun as if every imageboard ever was /b/

I have been guilty of not posting as much here, but i have not been posting anywhere on the internet for a few years now, just chatting with friends and studying/youtube.
The internet is just not that fun these days, when fun things happen they are usually temporary, and well, posting here is usually not that fun (not that other imageboards/social media are better in any way, they are also boring)
The reason i keep coming back here is because of quality, no other imageboard manages to have as many quality per post as mlpol.net, so that's a huge strongpoint for the board, yet a hard to market strongpoint.

I agree with you fully, anon, it would be a place for fags who don't like pony pussy can be without what was the fundamental basis of /mlpol/ when the April fool's merge happened,
To create a board such as that would be heretical to the original rules, as Lotus previously stated in this thread.

>Fucking an actual horse does not makes you better than a furry fucking the family dog.
The difference is that the show isn't about half human half horses and i don't like dog pussy or any other animal's vagina, neither do i dress up like my OC or waifu but if i could i would make a pony look like Luna because that would be hot.
Horses are the main animal of the show's character design, obviously some anons are going to also be interested in where the anatomically correct pastel pony vaginas actually came from.
Being a pony fucking Nazi pony fag is the ultimate power level possible in Pony PussE. I'm no nigger loving fur faggot that'll yiff in hell, i'll be fucking ponies down there instead.

So if one is to summarize this growing consensus, something like:
"Having a blue board that discourages/prohibits politics would be a move fundamentally contrary to /mlpol/ history and practice."
One could further summarize the proposal, in context:
"All /mlpol/ needs to get more from /mlp/ is to be less /mlpol/".
One of the problems with 4chan is that it appeals to disaffected teenagers who 0ften feel (whether through abuse on one end, and not being allowed to do whatever/whenever on the other) which can psychologically be transferred onto jannies/mods. This is the normal state for anons in particular, boards in general, and the site as a whole; fuck jannies, fuck niggers, etc.
Its therefore alien for 4chan posters to NOT feel some degree of resentment toward their host(s), and moreover it is alien for hosts to be particularly accommodating to the user base.
/mlp/ simply doesnt 'get' /mlpol/, but it isnt that there's been no opportunity. In fact, theres been 5 years for that to happen. Golly, who's dereliction is THAT the responsibility of?

Well according to the ancient furry chart, ponies fall into the "you sick bastard" category, so i think you're safe as long as you're not into satyr.
Jokes aside, it's just weird to fuck a horse anon, i guess it's ok to fantasize about it but please don't take the chance if it ever presents itself, you'd be just sticking your dick in an animal, in no way would people see you as anything but a zoophile.
Or just do it, like, it's not like i care that much honestly, i'm being dramatic here.

There's a point to be made here, and not just for the blue board.
/mlpol/ could benefit to be more aware about changes in the horsesphere and strike the iron when it's hot, as there have been times where I feel like we've missed opportunities to generate content and bring in users. There are a lot of key opportunities when this kind of thing happens, such as booru shitstorms, /mlp/ staff drama, and the periods immediately before and after the dropping of new series/seasons where we have opportunities to dominate this fandom, or at least retain/regain users.

Huh, sounds alot like something an ex staff used to go on about. I recall him doing so at length. At the time, he emphasized that an absence of leadership in staff is a woeful negligence (and nothingbhas changed, so par for the course) that needs to be addressed. As though, faggots sitting in a discord as 'online' but not actually giving a fuck about the site was a problem.
(spoiler: it is, but its the type of problem that takes it's time to manifest)
But who cares! Everything 'seems' right 'for now', so there's no harm right lads?

Why not make a semi-blue board where posting porn threads is forbidden, but flooding any shit threads with horse pussy is permitted?
The more activity we steal from sites with tranny jannies, the better. And 4chan has tranny jannies.

Staff is not the head of the community but an extension of the community's will tho, it makes sense to be de-centralized
All in all the site falls on the community's lap, if the community does nothing, the site will go nowhere.

The real question might be what does the mlpolacks want to do?

I know i like places where i can find people that draw/write more or less as bad as i do, so we can get some friendly competition going which greatly boosts fun and improvement.

I completely agree and my original post was more to dig in the idea that the mods here missed an opportunity and where huge faggots about it. I do think the idea of a mlpa board has branding going for it if this site stays consistant to memecross boards, but I dont seriously think /a/ content belongs here, as much as I personally like it. It's not unwelcome, but ought to be in the minority at the very least, and combining a greentext board with >nohooves sounds like the easiest way in the world to put the final nail in the coffin for mlpol with the >eqgreeeee crowd.

as mentioned earlier, /a/ posters who like posting OC content in the same vein as 4chan could be compelled if marketed to. Marketing in general for a userbase is not usually a product of any persons particular action but the majoritys inaction. There are groups among site communities with weak monopolies who want to break away but wont do the work themselves. PF and 4th edition D&D, for example. The number of people, the effort involved in reaching them, the reward of having them around, are all things that deserve legitimate skepticism, but you can, at the very least, see that bringing such anons here is a possibility specifically because the site administration they work under pisses them off.
>I have been guilty of not posting as much here, but i have not been posting anywhere on the internet for a few years now, just chatting with friends and studying/youtube.
this isn't something to be ashamed of. mlpols content is simply not that good. Yes it's a great speakeasy, but the vast majority of daily content is literally unaltered opinions of niche and mainstream news with the very occasional greentext implication. This is why I made the shitpost in the first place, because the content from the horse point of view on mlpol really is that shit.
Honestly even from a polack point of view it's increadibly shit.

I had actually let this thread go out of my mind thinking it had resolved itself but apparently not.

I don't get it. Why are you people talking about the content of mlpol, isn't that my talking point. That the best way to fish in newfags is by having better content and spreading the word about it. Wasn't the premise of why you wanted a blue board to begin with that the polacks' politics is obstructing ponyfags from enjoying the board and therefore you want a blueboard to get away from it? Again, to that I say people go to where people are so it has nothing to do with politics and if it has, those types of people won't visit a site where /pol/ is a stable rather than an unwanted appendix anyway.

Regardless, the whole mods aren't listening, and taking their chances is a bit a mute coming from you considering the mods clearly intend to implement your idea, >>6903

Anonfillies can just come and go as they please and that violates no rule, every other board sort of grew organically or because someone simply asked for it's creation.

The staff usually does not need to consult the users because in the first place it is users that ask for things to change, that's the very essence of mlpol, it is user-driven and not admin-driven.
There is nothing really special about mlpol.net apart from already being established, if things over here were to ever go to shit people would just move to a new bunker, like in the past, when it was created.

I admit i have been coming and going for a while, not checking the board out as much as i should have, but i fail to see how this is a tyranny at all.
And like hell I'm going to backtrack every little site change like the thread talking about glowies not acknowledging the big nose nukes.

Honestly it's more intellectually engaging than most of the shit i find on the internet these days, hence why i come back here.
Glimmer analysis threads, the threads on üb and an userbase whom actually types more than 2 lines of text to reply, it's pretty comfy.
If anything mlpol might not have as much funposting as other places but eh

I've realized there seems to always be a thread up with someone complaining about the site dying, the site being slow or the staff being bad.
It would be nice if people just calm the fuck down and enjoy posting.

Yes, staff can be forced to address certain topics when they become unavoidably obvious. That is not the same as being proactive and stitching in time to avoid 9, as the saying goes.

The issue I posited is that staff doesnt address ANY site decisions with the userbase, basically ever.
I cited MLH and Anonfilly as examples because when they showed up, there was contention amongst staff.
I can provide MORE contentious examples, if preferred.

You've been wasting your effort and repeating yourself for over a year now You have all of the self-awareness, self-importance, and ability to stay on topic as Nigel, and all of the annoyance and efficacy of a barking chihuahua.

I and other members of staff generally ignore you because you are not worth our time responding to and because other users are intelligent enough to see who you are, what you are doing, and why you are doing it. But you shit up every single thread on any /qa/ topic with your tirades, you often shit up threads on other boards, and sometimes, like now, you are blatantly lying. You are on notice to stop.

I honestly don't care how it looks or how much weight it might bring to my points, to type these posts replying to you is already a seemingly fruitless endeavor, to dig for evidence for what would probably be more than four hours just to prove a point is insane, specially because as i said the staff is communicating, which bring us to:

>Staff can be forced to address certain topics when they become unavoidably obvious.
>That is not the same as being proactive and stitching in time to avoid 9, as the saying goes.
>The issue I posited is that staff doesnt address ANY site decisions with the userbase, basically ever.
So you want the staff to be proactive( (of a person, policy, or action) creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened.)
Yet at the same time you want the staff to ask the userbase before taking action.
So in other words, you want the staff to create a thread every time something seems to be going to happen and ask "guys, plz is it ok if we ban this thread if it ever appears here?"

Is that the root of the problem for you, or what is it? I really don't understand which trouble you see with the current management and i would like to listen to you, in a clear way.
You've cited the problems you see already, the staff not being proactive, not communicating not being there, anything else? please cite it.
And i want you to tell me what is your proposal what is it that you expect of the staff, provide me an example of what a "good staff" would look like.

And keep in mind, the staff works for free, you can't ask people that have actual lives and responsibilities to drop all that shit to police the Equus smegma index.
If you want to fix anything, or even illustrate your point at all, please do illustrate it clearly and in detail as i have asked, instead of just pointing to problems that you seem to see and complain about it.

I still don't understand what case you're trying to make. What exactly do you want staff to do? The board is for politics and ponies; if more people post politics then we're going to have more political threads, if more people post horse threads then we have more horse threads. If you don't like the ratio of /pol/ to /mlp/, then post more /mlp/ threads. What do you want staff to do for you exactly? Do you want us to ban political threads? Add some kind of Twitter-style shadow algorithm that moves pony threads to the top of the page regardless of which threads are actually getting bumped? Frankly I don't care for a lot of the low-effort posts that are just news articles or boomer memes either, but the community sets the content, all we do is provide the space and delete spam.

>I post horse in places where I am rewarded for posting horse.
This is just stupid. Do you want someone to playfully massage your balls every time you post a pony? Here, watch this:

Depends on the context
>you want the staff to create a thread every time something seems to be going to happen and ask "guys, plz is it ok if we ban this thread if it ever appears here?"
Lol no. For one, a single thread would likely suffice. Much like Pupper's 'site changes/updates thread', a thread expressly for staff to interact both to and from users and get their input. Imagine asking permission! I'm talking about "Hey we noticed this" or "We're thinking about implementing a that" or any number of ways to involve users in the process. Maybe if so involved, a vastly better solution/arrangement/project could be developed, to the immediate benefit AND satisfaction of users. Worst case, no new ideas come in.

"Anyone has any ideas, I wanna hear 'em. I cant be expected to do ALL the thinking around here, can I?" - Ender Wiggin

>inb4 leddit spacing
As for the rest, I'll leave all kidding/shitposting aside. Additionally, I'll be phrasing this as though its a plan to be implemented, so pardon any pretense.

The first step is updating the site code, specifically to allow for staff members who can't make drastic changes to the site. I appreciate the reticence in bringing on new/unvetted staff, given that the current code gives everyone admin privileges.

The second step is bringing on more staff. Ideally, a few solid autists would serve, or a bunch of minimal/moderate ones. In either case, the former policy of 24-hour monitoring needs to be reinstated. I don't mean constant lurking, checking the overboard every 15-30 minutes would suffice. This isn't (just) about CP/spam deletion, it's also about availability and receptivity to users. I would have it that anyone can post to the site/aforementioned thread and get an immediate response.
>keep in mind, the staff works for free, you can't ask people that have actual lives and responsibilities to drop all that shit to police the Equus smegma index.
To the contrary, I spent several years maintaining the above-mentioned patrol, and maintained an efficacy that often rivalled the remainder of staff combined; and, I did it while running my own business AND subcontracting (60 hour weeks). I don't expect that much autism from any one person however (it would be nice though), so I would involve several autists to split the burden with existing staff. The main issue would then be vetting, and this TOO should be done on site, in the aforementioned thread.

I can't speak to the current staff or their functionality (with exception), but when I left there were a few individuals who neither monitored nor interacted with the site ever. I trust I needn't emphasize what I - as a business owner - would do with an employee that wasnt doing a/their job.
>but they do it for free!
Indeed, its a literal service/charity position, and as Elway put it:
>Being staff here is literally the most thankless job anyone could possibly have.

The next step - and while I am often very critical of the aforementioned, please understand that I am being quite honest and non-critical when I say the following - is to relieve Pupper of the pressure of leadership, and appoint someone in his stead.
The reason for this is - and I appreciate if my position is NOT appreciated - is that Pupper is not a leader; no disrespect intended. He ISN'T a bad guy by any stretch, but being an ACTIVE leader puts alot of stress on him, and he simply isn't conditioned for it. He's a brilliant coder, and should be allowed to do what he's good at without worrying about being the final say on anything/everything. As for leadership, I would nominate Elway; I have a laundry list of why Lotus should (ahem) remain as Admin, not that he HASN'T done his due diligence on/for the site (and ponerpics), but Elway is the MOST suitable candidate IMO and I feel his candor in and out of the Glimglam threads speaks to this. This assumes of course that he wants the responsibility, which I'm not confident of.

That's where I would start, and what the next steps are would depend on the outcome/progress of the previous steps.

I don't care to strategize, because this isn't a war and I don't care.

We know why. It's because you want the ability to do with the site and its users whatever you want with no accountability or restraint.

When other staff members didn't do whatever it was exactly you wanted some years ago you quit the staff discord while still using your moderator account to perform actions on the site, so you could perform moderator actions while not having to discuss those actions with persons you "didn't respect" on the staff discord server. So you thought you could do away with all supervision by strong-arming Atlas into making you an Admin on the site. Atlas has a sanguine personality, and while warm and fun is and was a people-pleaser and weak willed, so he accepted and made you an admin. I didn't just accept the situation and demanded a veto-power on banning decisions during the negotiations for hashing out the new power structure. I believe that it is because of that that you generally assume that I'm always conspiring against you (or something. I don't really care). Pupperwoff and Equus did not like you making an edit on a user's post. You can't handle anyone telling you "no" or "don't do this" so you continuously argued against him and developed a grudge against him and started regularly insulting him any time he typed anything in the staff server.

One day after an argument Pupperwoff stripped you of “admin” title, and you were such an asshole that not a single person cared to object. Not one single actual power was stripped from you, mind you, just a few words typed by Pupper. I remember talking to you in DM after that trying to negotiate settlement between you and Pupper so we could return to some kind of normalcy in staff. You insisted that the only role you would accept is one that would give you the power to do most anything you want, without any actual oversite by Pupper or anyone. Obviously that wasn't acceptable, because staff need to uphold a standard of behavior and you wouldn't accept any but your own. Pupper wanted you to give more description when drawing attention to questionable posts, I wanted you to behave professionally when posting with mod caps, and everyone, especially Elway, wanted you to stop being belligerent to everyone on staff. But you couldn’t handle even that much change to your behavior. It was all too much giving into others, and not enough getting your way.

And then one day I noticed you were not in any discord server related to the community, and we assumed you quit without telling us, presumably so Pupper couldn't fire you for abusing your power in deleting a certain post. I assumed that was the end of that and you had quit the community. What actually happened is that you realized that you had alienated everyone on staff and decided instead that you could take your case to the users and rile them up to do your bidding, and bully the remainder of staff into doing things. We all assumed you’d get bored after you realized that the users are not your personal army and will not act as such. Instead, we’ve been here over a year. I have, on several occasions, collected screenshots and started writing several-page long rebuttals to your regular tired. But every time, I have realized that I don’t care enough to put in that much effort into arguing with you.

I personally very strongly believe that you have a diagnosable mental illness that is causing you to behave like this, most likely a permutation of schizophrenia. I have known you for years, and decently well. You were not like this back in 2018. I believe your mental health took a very sharp decline two years ago. I think that is why you do what you do in the way you do it. It’s saddening.

This is what passes as 'not worthy of response'?
>It's because you want the ability to do with the site and its users whatever you want with no accountability or restraint
Nope. Next!
>you quit the staff discord while still using your moderator account to perform actions on the site
I made a full detail of what I was doing to Atlas, who was still site owner at the time. Next!
>strong-arming Atlas into making you an Admin on the site.
Atlas wanted out, I made it happen. There was no strong-arming, and aside from (you), everyone agreed. Next!
>Atlas has a sanguine personality, and while warm and fun is and was a people-pleaser and weak willed, so he accepted and made you an admin
I hear Atlas is back around. Funny, I would think he would be capable of making such an assertion, assuming there's validity. Next!
>I believe that it is because of that that you generally assume that I'm always conspiring against you
You and I both know that's not true. I dont assume you're 'always' conspiring against me, and I'll credit you have had no need to conspire against me for quite some time. But come now Lotus, be honest, if for once. Next!
>Pupperwoff and Equus did not like you making an edit on a user's post
And yet, they gave you a pass, even though you did far worse. Funny. Next!
>you can't handle anyone telling you "no" or "don't do this" so you continuously argued against him and developed a grudge against him and started regularly insulting him any time he typed anything in the staff server
Par for the course, wrong again.
What I WON'T do is agree with someone when they demand I do so especially when their 'grounds' are >muh feelings, and demands of compliance BECAUSE of feelings are a fast track to be told to get fucked.
And yes, I shitpost when individuals want to demand their way and refuse to discuss the matter. Especially when certain admins are abusing users outside THEIR scope and are being given a pass for loose reasons. Funny that you mention Atlas' sanguininity, since your entire position is based off of it. Next!
>One day after an argument Pupperwoff stripped you of “admin” title
>One day
You mean when Atlas reached out to staff, having gotten robbed, and wanted to reconnect? You mean the time YOU AND I spoke verbally to Atlas, confirmed his identity through personal information, and yet Pupper wanted nothing to do with him? You mean the time that I pulled ALL of staff into a discord room to forcibly vet him, since there was such inconceivable resistance to admitting it was Atlas? Cuz Pupper couldnt trust someone else's (me) due diligence, and you were strangely silent about 'yeah, its really Atlas'? Next!
>you were such an asshole that not a single person cared to object
*shrugs*
Haters gonna hate, but you're not wrong. I concede THAT point.
>Not one single actual power was stripped from you, mind you, just a few words typed by Pupper
Except for responsibility, not surprising thats what you overlooked. An admin is an executive position, with likewise responsibilities. You might know that if (you) had any authority as a leader. Next!
>You insisted that the only role you would accept is one that would give you the power to do most anything you want
False framing, but I'll grant you a pass on this one. The issue is/was, Pupper was intended to focus on programming/coding, leaving Administration to you, Elway, and me.
Instead, Pupper decided to demand his way on every decision. This was not the arrangement that was brokered, nor what I agreed to, and yes; if that is what Pupper intended - to dictate every time he had feelings/thoughts AND demand everyone AGREE with him - I wanted no part of it. Next!
>because staff need to uphold a standard of behavior and you wouldn't accept any but your own
Inactivity and lying to users (neglecting to amend the policy, et al) doesnt strike me as a suitable 'standard of behavior', so yes I refused.
>Pupper wanted you to give more description when drawing attention to questionable posts,
You're getting ahead of yourself. Pupper and I FIRST got off on the wrong foot when you were abusing users (more than once) and I confronted you on it (more than once). Atlas was unreachable, and Pupper bought your self-serving explanation without any discussion. It wasnt until there was - legitimate - bad blood that he attempted to take me to task about questionable posts and my behavior toward Nigel, and yes, by that point I wasnt hearing about how 'what I did was bad' but somehow 'what you did is of no concern'.
>I wanted you to behave professionally when posting with mod caps
>professionalism
Its a shame the users can't appreciate the hilarity of that statement, nor can I summarize it concisely. Still, thanks for the lols, never change Lotus.
>and everyone, especially Elway, wanted you to stop being belligerent to everyone on staff
After over a year of monitoring the site, bringing up posts/threads and no one ever knowing what I was talking about, because monitoring the site was evidently not anyone's priority, yes. When people arent doing their job, the correct course is discipline.
>And then one day I noticed you were not in any discord server related to the community
Did I need permission to take a step back and reassess? Are you that much of a control freak that I need to ask permission?
>presumably so Pupper couldn't fire you for abusing your power in deleting a certain post
How many posts did (you) delete, exactly? Wasnt deleting Nigel's off-topic posts YOUR suggestion? Oh, yeah, it was. Huh.
>I assumed that was the end of that and you had quit the community
I trust you know the adage about when you assume?

Oh you do, do you? Care to present your credentials,... doctor? How many times have you met with the 'patient', and what diagnostic criteria did you employ?
Or is it that you have a vested interest, and a (ahem) more than personal inclination to asseet your theories to malign your opponent. I credit, in certain context it makes sense; but this is not such a venue, and you dont have the luxury you... usually enjoy.
So, you're entitled to your beliefs, it has no bearing on me.

I agree that the mods don't engage the community much but I also am different in thinking that I don't see why they really have to. Anons here don't pay to use the site, they do, and if they want to be king faggot, nobody should have a right to tell them not to be.
>Really? I got you lot to do a bunch of things you refused while on staff. I suppose thats inefficacy?
Everything comes from somewhere, you didn't get someone to do something by being a complaining faggot, you got someone to do something by making them perceive you as a complaining faggot, lowering your social credit. If you want to call drawing on that credit "efficient" you've got to be fucking joking.
>>6985
>I still don't understand what case you're trying to make. What exactly do you want staff to do? The board is for whites and blacks; if more people birth blacks then we're going to have more blacks, if more people birth whites then we have more whites. If you don't like the ratio of black to white, then make more whites.
Since you don't seem to understanding the basic premise at all I'll once again, not that I haven't 3 times in this thread already, make the comparison to white flight.
>What do you want staff to do for you exactly? Do you want us to ban political threads? Add some kind of Twitter-style shadow algorithm that moves pony threads to the top of the page regardless of which threads are actually getting bumped? >Frankly I don't care for a lot of the low-effort posts that are just news articles or boomer memes either, but the community sets the content, all we do is provide the space and delete spam.
I already made it clear what I think should be done two years ago. a new board that's for horse only, I can only imagine that other fucking lunatic has you so tilted you didn't read any of this thread and maybe even tuned out any discussion from the staff, but in any case how you got absolutely no information from the original post when it's blatantly clear what is being suggested is beyond confusing as fuck.
Again, the only thing I ever suggested was that you guys make a pony board so that people fed up with the mlp on 4chan could come here. That opportunity is largely passed and if you made one now I wouldn't be mad but I think the people who immediately liked my idea and made this thread probably are a bit naive in how likely we are to see a result when /mlp/ is now having regular and exciting cons twice a year. Frankly I'm abjectly confused. I don't understand how anyone can think that this is a fun experiance for horsefuckery. It's a great place to speak my mind and post horse reaction images when shitposting about politics. but the horse content is near non existant and the reason it is is because the idea that combining the demographics of both boards would favor both equally was wrong to begin with.

Do I think mlpol needs to change? no. I never said we needed to modify any of the rules of that board. Do I think it's obvious who's content is being pushed off the board? yes. Acting like mlpol is a pony board is naive at best. It's /pol/ without GR 15.
>This is just stupid
The rest of your retarded post is significantly lowering my desire to engage with you at all. maybe I was speaking too soon when I said that other anon was tripple your faggotry, maybe hes just double, or one and a half. Literally all of the first half of this post is nothing but your inability to listen to ANYONE in this thread, let alone me. Even people who make their cases politely or have patience rather than a salty fucker who's been down this path with you faggots and already knew your answer from the start.

I'll counter that his candor in and out of threads/the board speaks to his credibility, especially considering the alternatives. Moreover, he's the face of Football, hes the most visible staff member given movie night et al. Hes not the PERFECT choice, but that wasn't the point of suggesting him.

I have no preference if we're talking about outcomes because there wont be any but if I was forced to pick one I'd go with lotus, who can and has at least pretended to listen to what someone else is saying before saying no anyway, unlike Elway or you. Pupper and atlas are mods I have had little to no contact with. Either way I think it's pretty clear when a admin barges in to seethe without even reading the op it looks about as good as a sour grapes faggot who left the team but wont stop loitering around and complaining about how hes not on the team anymore in someone else's thread.

I agree, Elway doesnt have a perfect record, and I'll admit that I can't validate my position on Lotus without publishing materials that would be grounds for censure.
I'll suffice to say that of the two, Elway strikes a far better compromise between libertarian vs. authoritarian, though I appreciate how dismissible that statement is.

lol false. I guess in your mind, someone saying 'no' to a series of yes or no questions (which IMO the answer to those questions, collectively, IS no) equates to being ignorant of the proposal?

Anyway, I dunno if it's the right call but I think at this point I have to reply to this and hopefully make my last post on this topic. Based on the overwhelming shitposting here, and the abject indifference of not just one but two mods, each more indifferent and hostile than the last.

They do not fucking care, man. Nevermind the fact that I went to them when it was time to strike and they still said no, they don't even agree that metal can be hot, and if it could, they cant fathom a reason for striking. You would be better off making your own numlp than wasting your time trying to suck off these idiots. Honestly if you are who I think you are though you're already doing a lot as it is and I think it's working and am fully behind it, even if the venue for it sucks. Trying to get these people to care about the horse community is a waste of time. They don't strike when the irons hot because they don't fucking care. They don't even know the state of /mlp/ over 2 years, let alone what's going on there recently. It's extremely telling that they keep trying to frame this as though we are struggling to get people to post pony. Now that G% drama is ogre I have a captive audience on /mlp/ due to cons. soap anon is selling soap. and I'm sure you or anyone could have a fucking blast over there running your own panels and drinking in the OC. we don't have to stop using this website but trying to get them to understand the horse community is a huge waste of fucking time. I'm not anything more than 7 charisma internet retard but I gave the idea my best shot of explanation and defense. It's absolutely crystal clear that the latest people involved didn't even read your opening post. I'd rather work on my projects than spend hours screaming at mods who don't even spend a second glancing at your polite OP before they fly off the handle.

Up until my 19's i think i was still like that, but i sort of just grew out of it and after many interactions with disgusting furries and zoosadists, the idea of sticking it into a horse or any other animal is repelling.

OK, you've caught my attention there.
I remember back in 2019 when the leaks happened and there was this big fuzz about diverstria and stoned golly.
I tried to get poners from this site onboard. I mean, it was this shitstorm that gave Aryanne a permanent foothold on /mlp/
Buuut...mods here deleted everything, cuz spam...
Tried to appeal alongside the other anons, telling them how important this was and how there wouldn't be another chance.
I had to wait until the episode actually aired to keep pushing.
Which wasn't exactly easy anyways,
With the choking apathy of the userbase here.
I eventually managed to get them to care, but I won't forget how this was almost ruined by apathy and inaction, both from the userbase and particularly from staff.
So, you got my support if you need anything with your stuff and if I happen to have spare time on me to help.

He's right tho, you niggers are utterly disconnected from reality when it comes to /mlp/. It takes an ungodly, byzantine effort to get to care in the slightest.
You've been like this for years now, and the events that transpired ever since the ending leaked, proves that we were right.

What more do you want from us, aside from “make a new board immediately without any more discussion”? You have opened the question for public debate. I have listened to the arguments you’ve made, I have given my personal opinion, and you have responded to my statement of my opinion with a rebuttal of your own. The issue has been brought up and discussed by staff within the staff communication channel, and the general opinion has been published here. Many users have also made comments.

The issue is currently up to a poll posted in >>6985, and staff are waiting to see the results if that as well as community discussion to determine if we will make a new board, and if a new board is made, what that board will be named and what the rules will be. Literally what more could you possibly ask for? If this were an actual political issue like a region wanting independence, the government putting the issue to a referendum would be considered a tremendous victory for the movants. See the quebecois independence-movement in Canada, the Scottish independent movement, and the “Leave” campaign in Britain for examples of IRL movements that obtained referendums, and contrast the Spanish crackdown on the “illegal” Catalonian independence vote for an example of a central government denying a vote.

Literally what else do you want? Staff has posed the question of “what should this new board be named” and other users have engaged in that question. Users have asked the question of whether any new board should be a blue board. Maybe you have engaged in those discussions and maybe you haven’t, but the point is that there is discussion to be had amongst the users on the topic.

But instead of jumping for joy that the issue is up for popular vote and user discussion, and persuading users that they should post and vote in favor of the new idea, you bitch about staff and complain that we don’t use 4chan, the website we created this website to get away from. Bitch, Please. We are not going to suck your dick.

No. The leaks were not deleted because of “spam.” The reason they were deleted was because an error in the way the text was spoilered. The post contained major spoilers for season 9, and such spoilers need to be, well, spoilered. However, green text was showing through the black such that just glancing at the OP post caused those spoilers to be visible. I deleted the post with a warning as to the reason why. All that had to happen was to correct the post, such as by removing the arrows. For some reason the OP chose not to post again.

>Tried to appeal alongside the other anons, telling them how important this was and how there wouldn't be another chance.
I don’t recall anyone whatsoever making any appeal or anything about the leaks. All that needed to be done was to repost the same text with out the green text, but it was not resubmitted.

I'm not talking about /mlp/, i can't give two fucks about this whole discussion about the traffic on the site, it is pointless to discuss it and i don't plan to repeat my previous post addressing why that is.

I'm just policing shitty arguments and faulty logic because it pleases me to read a good argument with some good back and forth between two parties.
And honestly most of the shit that's been posted here simply makes 0 sense.

Honestly i don't understand your guy's constant obsession with /mlp/, it's almost like you're putting it in some autistic pedestral of what a chan should be.
mlp is a depressing place filled with autists, like all of 4chan.
Non-4chan internet is filled with underage and normies, so that's also not very nice.

I'm gonna drop a fat black pill down your throat: Mlpol will never have considerable traffic because the concept itself is autistic and idiotic.
Mention /pol/ to anyone and the only thing you will get is "Oh, the edgy neonazi board?"
Mention /mlp/ to someone and they will either say something about pedos or think you're a weirdo.

Wow, what a surprise, when you mix vomit and shit together you get something even more disgusting.
Yeah sure, it worked for a while, under very special circumstances, but once that ended the site was left with a small userbase posting content of more or less quality and little to no outside traffic.

And it's not surprising at all.
Most small chans you will find out there, with a few exceptions like crystal cafe and lolcow farms, will have little to no traffic because they are unknown or simply small and kind of dead.
Add to that the fact that, as i said earlier, mlpol is disgusting for the average person and boom, you got a very slow site.

Face it, /mlp/ hates this place, they know it exists and they don't give three shits about it, it's impressive the site has lasted this long and the fact that it gets as many posts per day as it gets.
The site will stay this way until it either dies or something incredible happens and suddenly mlpol becomes popular, which is highly unlikely.

God damn for a site of grown ass adults you're a fucking bunch of whinny bitches and immature bastards.
The userbase won't do shit? Yeah no shit sherlock, if the userbase did anything but complain things would be a lot different, ya think you're the only one that has tried to do something to help the site, just for the users to show an incredible amount of not giving a fuck?

It's hardly the epitome of what a chansite should be. But...wanna know the funny part? It's still way better than this hellhole. And before you blind us with your wisdom once more, I know this site is probably always going to be a small site. The point is, this site was miles better just three years ago. Not only traffic has decreased, the quality has gone to shit as well.

All we have here are boomer memes, news articles, an autistic britbong, a bunch of insufferable faggots who can't simply filter the retard, and an internet tough guy who feels the need to larp in a horse-whispering forum.
The average Aryanne poster in /mlp/ is better than the average poster here. And let's not even mention the /his/ fags spreading outside chansites, wow_mao fags could probably curb-stomp the whole site. Basically anyone who's been in that shitstorm for long enough.

That the quality is shit, i can't claim, because i came back recently and i still enjoy a few of the threads, so to not insult them, i can't claim everything on this site is trash.
That many, many of the threads are completely irrelevant to me and my tastes is true though, but they exist for a reason so out of respect for their owners and patrons, i can't claim they are trash.

Now that /mlp/ is objectively better is arguable, for the quantity of PPM (posts per minute), /mlp/ will naturally have both more trash and also more good stuff compared to something slow like /mlpol/.
So in a way /mlp/ does have more threads, and more engaging threads too, but they also have a ton of trash in their bag.

But well, the activity and quality of the board is determined by its userbase, and what i have learnt, personally, is that if you don't have fun carrying a whole thread in your back with little to no input from outsiders (Like the glimglam thread), you will get burnt out and just abandon ship because it's simply not fun, not rewarding and not worth it. (Like the Mein Kampf reading thread)
So, i can agree with you.
But then, what would you do to improve this situation?

Cos a couple of psychos went off rails with old butthurt.
The excuse is a safe space for ponyfags, the real motive is to cause mayhem to punish /mlpol/ staff.
Narcissism and gaslighting 101 if you look carefully into it.

>I don't find it disgusting, when i was like 15-16 and my mind was full of pony i would totally fuck a horse, given the chance.
If you have had similar ideas to mine in the past then you can somewhat comprehend my manner of thinking and acting, it is an emotional obsession that i have with pony mares which i first developed through lustful curiosity then thus it further snowballed over years into a degeneration of sex addiction.
>Up until my 19's i think i was still like that, but i sort of just grew out of it and after many interactions with disgusting furries and zoosadists, the idea of sticking it into a horse or any other animal is repelling.
Furfags and sadistic zoophiliacs have always come off as unappealing to me, some seem very psychopathic or severely autistic so they are not quite the pleasant kind to converse with.

>Welp, have your fun anon, everyone has their tastes and I'm just some muscular dude that has cute bunny stickers on his wallet so who am i to judge.
I appreciate your tolerance and understanding fren.

Well niggers, this is not random, every time OP and associates begun to fling shit, the post count went to the toilet. This time is not exception and looking how it goes, perhaps (you) have the distinguished honor of to have killed the board.
Badmouthing shitposters because muh quality has consequences and your venom is not harmless. Congratulations. /s

The whole paranoia on quality just makes people afraid to post funthreads.
People should just post whatever, the quality comes from the users, not the posts.

Hey, I'm not flinging any shit here. I just moved the conversation put of my Roe v. Wade thread. The shitflinging started after that.
Also, I haven't had the time to closely monitor this thread the past couple days.

Like, seriously, I tried my best to word everything as diplomatically and considerately as possible, but it can't be helped if people want to mix past grievances or paranoid suspicions into a completely separate conversation. I don't think we should just avoid having the conversations at all either just because people get angry about things though. I want everyone to express themselves.

Right, but the fear of being labeled as off-topic may stop some from posting at all.

What arguments are there for not making a blue pony board, anyway?
Are the /pol/ users afraid of losing activity in political threads?

I've actually felt this for a long time now, but never really spoke up about it because I thought I might have been the only person affected by the atmosphere. It looks like I'm not the only one who feels that way.
I've heard of people talk about quality over quantity for a while, but on boards that are supposed to be for entertainment, having too tense of an attitude can mean you get neither.

I don't think so, actually. The template for making a board already exists.
>resources
I don't think so either. We have plenty of site data, and barely use most of what is already paid for.
>it would possibly be a passing fad that lasts mere days
That is actually a legitimate concern. I think people would prefer the idea if there were some guarantee that the board would actually be used, or that there were someone committed to stocking it with content.
