We don't have a /b/ because there's no need for a /b/. Please expound on your raiding question.

That makes no sense, all image boards have a /b/

2. Sorry ban list is a bit odd

Do you mean /b/ as in just a random board? Because that's what /mlpol/ is. If you mean /b/ as in the cesspool on 4chins filled with traps and summerfags, I'm not sure why you'd want such a thing.
As for the banlist, we have a comfy home here, and we try to keep it clean. If someone wants to come here and flood the site with a bunch of shit that has no value, we will issue a ban to that user.

I should clarify, /mlpol/ isn't simply a random board, it's a board for ponies and politics as well as any other topic as long it's presented in a thoughtful manner.

Have you checked out >>>/1ntr/
If you want to talk about anime and old macros/memes, /1ntr/ is the place to go. What do you mean by shitposting? I suppose your definition is relevant to this conversation.

well a /b/ board would be nice to have.
i mean no one really uses /1ntr/ but people will use /b/.
/b/ would be good to contain all non-political topics I.E dubs thread or more pics of her.
at least change /1ntr/ to /b/

/b/ on 4chan sucks because of all the popularity and underage summerfags, while a /b/ here would not

The staff will have to discuss this. I'm sorry I can't give you an answer right now, but may I ask why it is you think /b/ will get traffic when /1ntr/ is slower?

1. thank you

2. well /1ntr/ is not really recognizable and not really understandable, while /b/ will be a bit recognizable and ((hopefully)) gain more traffic. I believe it should be ran as a trial board.

And it's just an opinion; dubs threads are just one of many forms of cancer that mlpol doesn't need. There are plenty of places one can b random.

>change 1ntr into a /b/ board
That's the funniest suggestion I've ever heard on this website.
>>1516
>anime and shit posting
There are plenty of other websites that you can post either of those on.

But in all seriousness, what exactly would a /b/ board be useful for, that wouldn't either take away from good discussion that could be had on an existing board, or be completely cancerous and the kind of thing that is better off not existing on this website?

It does look like a /b/ random or /low/ shit posting board is the most popular new possible board, and therefore the most likely to be made if and when a new board is made. But unlike other board options, there seem to be people who oppose that type of board for reasons other than "will it get any traffic."

No, it's a perfectly fine question. A /b/ board is requested everytime the subject of a new board comes up. It was several months ago, it was a few weeks ago, and it was a couple days ago in the discussion over /vx/. You're not the only person to ask for that board, and you probably won't be the last

Can you repost the OP pic? I think I (or someone) might have deleted it by accident when clicking on the OP post number while using a phone screen. It was cute, and I didn't get to save it

A /fun/ or /off/topic board would be magical!
