What else do you expect from a dead site?
Ok then. I can't force you to post. However, the community has spoken, and the rules do state you can't keep making generals. Throwing a fit about it won't change anything. Arguments will.
>>7417>Throwing a fit about it won't change anything. Arguments will.
Also fine. I accept that and we conclude the divorce. No hard feelings.
Once the generals are gone, I'll pick up the pace and make a bunch of fresh threads (tomorrow, I'm tired rn). Admittingly I don't make as many threads as I used to, but that's in part because it felt like the generals were sucking up all of the conversation.
We will still be here when you get back around to feeling better.
Perhaps there could be a one day grace period before all the generals are nuked.
Sure. I'll let staff know so we can wait.
Holy fucking based.
I've been salivating for this moment since 2019.
Good fucking riddance. I hope you get kicked out from everywhere you go till you're forced to learn smoke signals. Bring us another ice age from your facebook, boomer smoke.
He called me a newfag, but it's clear to see that this style of posting has only been present since 2019-2020
I think the grace period is over now.
You faggots bitch more about the site than contributing any content, what with all this divisive bullshit.
You can either tolerate the boomer shit or have a dead site with only a handful of special spergs posting, apparently in some ironically pretentious attempt at being a good board while totally missing the point that this place is declining due to a lack of interest rather than low quality posts. Any effort to improve the site by fucking with its organization is like putting a bandaid on a broken limb.
No amount of sperging or trying to "fix" this place is going to invite new users or bring back "muh heckin' oldfags" that aren't retards. If content quality and generation is such a concern, then why not look to expand to broader horizons and let the community with its preexisting culture sort out the trash?
I really think some of you take this place for granted and love to moan about it for brownie points while doing fuck all for the site as a whole.
Should administration and mods listen to popular opinion if the average users are now hopelessly retarded spergs that'll cut their own nose to spite their face? No, not in my opinion. And that's being generous by assuming that this recent push isn't due to a vocal minority of 'tards who may not have the best interest of the site as a whole as a concern.
I'm not one of the ones moaning about how the site needs to change. You're the ones screaming about how much your assholes ache in the wake of some low effort boomer posts.
Seethe & Dilate to sleep.
No, I don't think I will, retard.
>>7427>You can either tolerate the boomer shit or have a dead site
False dichotomy. It's already been explained how low-effort generals suppress discussion, and this site was made with intent to escape exactly that.
Moreover, a site that primarily occupied by low effort boomer shit effectively IS a dead site. If volume were the intent, there'd be no reason to be here instead of 4chan. Everyone here was content to have a slow board, but nobody agreed to have a board full of trashy generals.>fucking with its organization
The organization got fucked up because nobody spoke up earlier when changes were being made. We had a very clear and concrete rule against generals. Anonfilly and /sg/ got specific acceptions after days of debate, pleas for permission, and welcoming threads. This is a return to prior organization.>let the community with its preexisting culture sort out the trash?
That's what's happening now.>>7430>I'm not one of the ones moaning about how the site needs to change
(You) are moaning about how people are rejecting changes that have already been made to the site. The site was not always like this.
Alright. I was unavailable. I will lock the threads and allow a couple hours to move info to a better thread before deleting.
I think we should address the problem as to why people are posting politics on /1ntr/ in the first place; there is too much spam on /mlpol/. It's difficult to have serious discussions when half the catalog is "hi anon" threads. Sometimes horse pussy is also spammed unnecessarily even when the OP is just a retard instead of a shill. I'm not saying to crack down on ponies, just crack down on spam. Spam makes real discussion damn near impossible.
>>7437>Sometimes horse pussy is also spammed unnecessarily
Isn't that kind of the point of the site? The porn makes the site unpleasant for newfags, redditors and tourists.
The reason why we got rid of the porn board was because it "ruined the pornshield", since we wanted multiple porn threads on the catalog.
>>7437>It's difficult to have serious discussions when half the catalog is "hi anon" threads.>Spam makes real discussion damn near impossible.
I disagree. The threads you refer to as "spam" mostly just push months-old threads off of the catalog, so they're not really taking up any space. It's not hard to just scroll past them to find the threads you're trying to post in.
Even if posts are spammed within threads, it's not hard to just hide/ignore them. It's technically encouraged, as per rule 10.
There's a difference between posting a few pics of horse porn whenever vs spamming a thread you don't like to the point where discussion is impossible.>>7439
People seeing the same thread over and over reflects poorly on the site. We are a proud race of Nazi horse fuckers and we should take care of the sites image.
>>7440>spamming a thread you don't like to the point where discussion is impossible.
That's unironically rule 10. It's a silly rule, hence why it went unwritten.>We are a proud race of Nazi horse fuckers and we should take care of the sites image
When people come here, they want to see a catalog that has ponies on it, and isn't covered in months-old threads and shitty generals. Pony threads are an improvement.
>>7441>That's unironically rule 10. It's a silly rule, hence why it went unwritten.
Then it needs to be better enforced.>When people come here, they want to see a catalog that has ponies on it, and isn't covered in months-old threads and shitty generals. Pony threads are an improvement.
Seeing what is essentially the same post over and over just makes it look like we tolerate spam.
>>7442>Then it needs to be better enforced.
Pornspamming shitty threads to bump limit became unfeasible once the limits were raised to 700.>makes it look like we tolerate spam
It makes it look like we tolerate fun, unlike post-scruffening /mlp/.
Besides, having months-old dead news threads on the board is even more of an eyesore. Remember when the /jp/ raiders came and started screwing with us by necrobumping the dead threads on the bottom of the catalog?
I'm back after a week and the board is unrecognizable, I can't believe you destroyed mlpol because of muh generals.
Now all I see is low effort pony dumping to fill the vacuum left by no longer pol discussion, plus a couple of attempts to post greens.
2 or 3 hysterical faggots kvetching like SJW are regrettable, but the mods joining in to kill undesirable shitposting blow my mind.
By the way, the critical mass to recover political discussion is gone, and you niggers kicked out the last fags keeping it going.
>>7444>It makes it look like we tolerate fun, unlike post-scruffening /mlp/.
Fun is a couple of these threads not the entire first page>Remember when the /jp/ raiders came and started screwing with us by necrobumping the dead threads on the bottom of the catalog?
I wasn't here for that.
There is a difference between tasteful posting and spam and you know it.
In ideal conditions, this board would be covered in porn threads of all kinds, with posters making threads for specific kinds of porn or just casually hornyposting to pass the time. That's how it was in 2017. That's how it was the day of the merge. That's how it was intended to be. Do you not remember that?
Ponies allowed, NO EXCEPTIONS!
What threads are missed?>>7447
It’s pretty well known that the posting of porn is a way to signal that the poster considers the OP, or at least the current course of discussion, to be bait. I have t seen anything that hasn’t fallen into that, but then again, I haven’t seen every thread.
Lmao, you're so dramatic. It's like you don't even remember the days when we had our catalog nuked by /jp/ and /qa/ every week.>By the way, the critical mass to recover political discussion is gone, and you niggers kicked out the last fags keeping it going.
So long then. Don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out.
>>7445>no longer pol discussion
I said it myself that I'd start new happening threads once the generals are gone. Until then, I have abstained from posting in the generals.
I'm not saying don't allow ponies I'm saying don't allow spam. You know the difference faggot.
Maybe those of us interested in /pol/ content should post anyways. Be the poster you want to see on this board. I remember that was the philosophy back in 2017.
I am interested in /pol/, and the kind of poster I want to see doesn't bump crappy generals. Things have gotten dire, to the point where I've slowly begun to reconsider all of the efforts I put into this board over the years.
There was a time when I was making 40-60 percent of the political threads on this board, and I can go back to that if need be, but I'm going to wait until the generals are gone first.
I know that feel anon. I've been here since 2017 off and on. There were times I felt like I was just blowing on hot coals trying to keep the fire alive. Maybe we should try making fishing trips again.
I've been here every day, since the minute Atlas posted his first link to /qa/. Things have changed though.
What's more, in the past ~2 years, some retards have been calling ME a newfag, just for not agreeing with them.
That's unrelated to the topic though.
Fishing feels like cope/grasping at straws, but it wouldn't hurt to remind people that this place exists as somewhere they can move their discussions when 4chan gets too shitty. There are some oldfags still around who just forgot about this place, and went to discord or whatnot.
>>7456>some retards have been calling ME a newfag, just for not agreeing with them.
I know that feel. This site went through a phase where half the users thought everyone was a shill and I got called a shill every time I disagreed with them. It was certainly frustrating.>There are some oldfags still around who just forgot about this place, and went to discord or whatnot.
We could try advertising on altchans there are lots of oldfags on those sites. I know alogs.space/robowaifu has an embrace thread one of our mods should make a thread there advertising /cyb/.
>>7458>This site went through a phase where half the users thought everyone was a shill and I got called a shill every time I disagreed with them.
It got bad around the time that one shitposter kept detracting in the Jewish Crime Thread, and gradually because /ptg/-tier. Posters kept throwing around baseless accusations of "shilling", diminishing the severity of the term, while also playing into the hands of what Glowniggers and detractors want most of all: to shut down discussion and free thought through paranoia and shitflinging.>altchans
Could be worth a shot. There are several pony altchans with userbases about the same size as ours. Friendly outreach wouldn't hurt.>one of our mods should make a thread there
You could also do it yourself. Nobody is stopping you.
>>7459>Posters kept throwing around baseless accusations of "shilling", diminishing the severity of the term, while also playing into the hands of what Glowniggers and detractors want most of all: to shut down discussion and free thought through paranoia and shitflinging.
I half suspect glow niggers or raiders may have been involved.>You could also do it yourself. Nobody is stopping you
I figured I'd let a mod do it because it would be more official, but sure I'll go make a post.
>>7460>I half suspect glow niggers or raiders may have been involved
Perhaps, although I feel it was also largely due to newfags taking the bait and oldfags not doing enough to fix the situation as it was devolving.>I figured I'd let a mod do it because it would be more official
You've never needed permission to do that, lol. I raid alt-chans in the name of /mlpol/ every couple months, and I never once asked for permission. We're not a top-down hierarchy.
The only reason I felt it might be different is because the thread is supposed to function like an embassy.https://alogs.space/robowaifu/res/2823.html
You sound like you know what you're doing. Go shoot your shot.
The generals are still there...
That Cadence reminds me a bit of Daki.
Except much cuter cuz no thot.
