Most of that have been already solved. >>>/sp/21290 →
But I like you anon...
Remember how cute ponies are and the joy they bring. The community is for positive emotions, not negative emotions.
Since the fuck when? 2019? Get real.
I am bringing the cute ponies.
And no, I do not generally engage in arguments I know cannot end amicably, if that is what you are referring to.
Yes, except you are back to using a general, which the whole point of our last argument is to not rely on generals, as they upset the user base because it is against the policy section. You are only going to post there and spam updates, which is not addressed in that thread.
>>8054>Yes, except you are back to using a general
Oki Doki. If the corona-chan bread is the triggering spot, then I will let it go. No big deal.
You bring nothing. You only ever show up to defend the garbage at your doorstep. Be it niggel or this retard.
I don't even know why you are even a fucking mod.
All right, you want to fly shit around then let's have it.
Lotus as the ## Admin
is trying to calm down both sides and to be conciliatory. Blaming him is to shit on the wrong target as he has the duty to keep the wheels together.
Fasces as the ## Mod
has the duty of to be the cop and do the dirty work. In this case he sided with the hysterical party long ago and I'm on the receiving end of his displeasure.
There is an obvious schizophrenic rift among the staff, in this case Lotus
who is top boss and Fasces
who is to my understanding a subordinate. On one side Lotus authorize me to post, on the other side Fasces
totally dis-authorize me and expresses his displeasure. This is a very confusing situation indeed.
Also Fasces told me more than once that "The Community" wants me to stop spamming (posting) which implies I'm not considered part of the community any longer.
There is a very hostile anon who lose his marbles and has no better idea to outright throw insults at me like I'm the worst enemy. Very disfunctional board indeed.
As a frequent Tor poster I saw many IPs banned because the mod didn't like the answer, or because the anon called somebody a jew. No wonder that /pol/ posters left in mass, in my case I'm very autistic and that method hardly will work.
But, I have to recognize this is not a imageboard with a staff committed to welcome fresh blood, but to expel anybody not onboard with the /mlp/ fags. So, please come clean, you literally want a Blue Pony Board but lurking under the banner of /mlpol/ so you may feel edgy.
And by the way, the above is a testimony of how to kill an imageboard. The steady decline is not a result of low quality, but the direct result of suppressing a lot of voices who left forever. And you did it.
>you want a blue pony board
You're still under the impression there's some kind of rift between "polacks" and "ponyfags" here?
Anyway, idga fuck about you. It's impossible to reason with you. What I want to know is why Lotus needs to stand on behalf of every subhuman on his porch.
He said it himself. He's argued with so many people over a certain poster, and many of them have left the site over it. Was it necessary to treat the site as if it was the mental clinic where he works? Was it worth it?
If spam and generals being banned by agreed upon policy set in place in 2017, then your idea of how an imageboard lives or dies is fucked. You don't get to deceive Lotus by saying you were banned in posting corona stuff when the issue is generals and spam.
Let me make this clear for you. You are banned from spam and generals. If this is an attack on you, then you admit that you only engage in this material. Otherwise, it should be business as usual and no problem.
This is your final warning. You will engage with this website like a normal fucking person. Is that understood?
Calm down Fasces, no need to over do it.
Even when you banned me, I didn't do any ban evasion. So, I listen to you, not always, but usually do.
Also chillax, I'll restrict my forbidden activities to /sp/ and a couple of threads at /cyb/, /ub/, and /vx/; you know which ones.
Thank you for your understanding.
You are free to post in new threads or existing threads that are not specifically a general. You just need to actually listen to me to process this information.
>>8063>existing threads that are not specifically a general
Not a general at /mlpol/.
What about Horse, Cat, Flat Earth, and Books?
I think we can agree that those are specialized enough to not be generals. Horse is basically just the post every time you visit /sp/ concept. A corona virus general has literally every headline you find on the subject. It lost all discussion potential or looking up any information within it. It all gets buried. You need to line up some more specific discussions or topics within your field.
And flat earth is just your personal playground that you expanded to your landfill thread. It is kind of pointless to fight back against it because you both don't vary your talking points or posting style. I fought you for months to mix it up and it has proven literally impossible.
This is why I am drawing this specific line in the sand. You need to learn to adapt and maybe improve, or stay the same and stick with whatever self-limitations you provide yourself by needing everything you post to be a general.
Ok, so if I understand well, Books and Music are niches that I'm allowed to fill, no discussions are required there.
Yep. You need to turn the other things you like to post into a niche or open it up to discussion. Make it more specific.
I suspect this will get intense and now I'm on something that not be stopped. Later please.
Very odd, but if you insist. I will simply lay out my argument for when you get back.
I had a massive post, but then the power went out. Let me give you a shorter version to avoid losing this one too. I want you to look at this pattern.>>>/mlpol/361271 →>>>/mlpol/361388 →>>>/mlpol/361430 →>>>/mlpol/361612 →>>>/mlpol/361655 →>>>/mlpol/361745 →>>>/mlpol/361830 →>>>/mlpol/361833 →>>>/mlpol/361882 →>>>/mlpol/361883 →
And finally you get one post. All of that for one response. But take a look at this new pattern.>>>/mlpol/361931 →>>>/mlpol/361933 →>>>/mlpol/361935 →>>>/mlpol/361936 →>>>/mlpol/361937 →>>>/mlpol/361939 →
If you look closely, you see a massive difference. You got responses! Amazing. How did this happen. You posted a shitty graph and two sentences. It must be the graph you posted, right?
Except, this doesn't line up with what he responded to, which was the text. You probably just hijacked that as well from wherever you found the pic, but that had an interesting effect. People tried to talk with you.https://youtu.be/cphNpqKpKc4?feature=shared
This cannot stand. So, you begin your panic mode response.

This is how many posts you made before getting a single response. And I do mean single. You didn't respond to that one and funny enough, there is no discussion that happens. You go back to posting articles and memes.
My point in all of this is to try to show you a pattern. You get responses by responding. You generate an initial response with an interesting line of text to respond to and debate or expand upon. Your posting style and the generals have done nothing for the site and you have been self-sabotaging in your efforts.
It's almost as if the only way he garners responses is by flinging shit at otherwise sympathetic people for a response which he then proceeds to "defeat" with said shit, and when it fails, he's back to flinging shit everywhere.
In case you're curious (you aren't), homelessness is approaching again. And this fucking retard is YOUR problem. When he loses his dopamine, and people drop off the site like flies, he'll go back to demanding attention from whatever backwater shitheap website he got those worthless memes from.Friends, we don't know anything
And by now, we can't even tell
The food in the kitchen is rotten, and so are we!
But at this point, it's how we smell.
So when you're bored, you're hungry and you're tired
Well there's a screen in every room and every pocket
So just tune it all out, because you're tuning in
To what we're shoving right through your socket!
Sorry to hear that. And yes, he is my problem. That is why I am attempting to handle it.
Whatever you say.
Magic of friendship is a joke. None of us ought to meet in real life and we're all beyond saving. No amount of contrived analogies between fascist unity and horses will ever make it happen.
If God looks upon us, it isn't with a smile.
Am sorry about it anon. But that's all I can do, be sorry. Can't blame me for it, or anybody else here for that matter.
This is, imo, partly a consequence of allowing generals. Amy of those articles posted could have been posted in their own threads, which would have made room for discussion without them being buried in the generals.
Can you fucking shut up about generals? That's all you ever talk about. We already stated that they are not allowed, for fuck sake.
Pardon me if I sound like a broken record, but it was only yesterday that that thread was even locked, even though that generals have been prohibited since 2017. I'm glad the decision was made, and I'm just adding my insights to portray why enforcing the rules of the site is important, because the alternative reinforces and enables unfavorable behaviors like the ones you referred to above. I hope we can move past this point.
The reason why we haven't enforced it is because we get nothing but shit for enforcing. It took this long until people had enough to realize that the rules were worth enforcing and are not censorship.
I, for one, appreciate it when the rules are enforced, and hope they continue to be enforced. The rules are here for a reason. Nobody thought it was censorship when those rules were written, so enforcing them shouldn't be censorship either.
Your first statement was right. You, for one, believed that. Some people don't agree with the one that is you. You are right in that people did not believe it censorship at the time of writing, yes. The problem comes when we hit staff rule #3.
Staff will take all community suggestions into account
As this is a community site and not a top-down dictatorship like some other sites user input is very important
Staff found to be deliberately removing community suggestions to avoid changes on the site or push their own agenda will be subject to punitive measures up to and including dismissal
This means that we need to attempt a diplomatic solution to a problem if possible. This is why too strict an enforcement of this rule when there is an outcry against the enforcement, such as anonfilly. Anonfilly made sense. Other generals do not. However, people made vocal support for this poster saying it helps the site.
Therefore, we have to talk this out and find a solution to minimize the direct action we must take against him.
>>8088>there is an outcry against the enforcement, such as anonfilly. Anonfilly made sense
Anonfilly was a special case. The decision was made after days of debate, and an explicit exception was made to extend hospitality to Anons who had been expelled from /mlp/. /sg/ was another case where an explicit exception was made.>Therefore, we have to talk this out and find a solution
I'm all for that.
I'm a bit of a constitutional originalist when it comes to rules though. I think the rules should be enforced, and if the rules aren't working then they should be changed.
It's not said much, but all staff and every Anon. You're all loved.
Where can I post news with to break Rule 3?
Just make a thread about a particular news topic. Provide a link and a summary of what the newslink entails, a relevant picture (bonus for additional ponies), and open the discussion.
What about if the topic already exists as a general? It is like it doesn't make sense to have 2 threads about the same.
Ignore the general threads. Just because some retard broke rule #3 doesn't mean you can't make specific threads.
Then it might be possible that 5 or even 10 new threads might pop up every day. That won't make the catalog look good.
An alternative that might work is to make a thread in /sp/; News General
No. That's the intended appearance of the board.
So, a lot of threads without answers (that is the very definition of spamming) is better looking than generals containing a topic. Mmmmmmh. It doesn't look right to me.
Better I will post in /sp/.
If they don't get answers, they'll slide. If they didn't get answers, they wouldn't be worth posting in some general either.>Better I will post in /sp/
That doesn't really make it better.
>>8102>That doesn't really make it better.
Yes, it does. The plan to post multiple threads in /mlpol/ is doomed to failure because the faggots will complain with good reason that messes the catalog up with according to some crybabies, "garbage". It happened before when a snowflake spammed /mlpol/ with pony threads because pony breads in /overboard/ were slided all the time.
