Would it be possible to add an IRC or a chatroom of some kind to the website? The kikes are coming for discord and we will need an alternative soon. It could be a good way to get a few new users from the discord servers.

Well, if you put it that way...
Anyways, I am not MLPOL discordian but there are might 2 problems.
-This IRC would have to have feature for uploading audio, pics, gifs and video. Not sure if its also possible to have bots on it outside Discord.
Not sure how could it be possible to use IRC on this website but if you could implement https://about.riot.im/ , then this one has few bots on it.
-I remember asking MLPOL discordians why they wouldn't just abandon discord and post on mlpol.net They said something in fashion that if they can't have board on 4chan, they are staying in discord. Also something about valuing their independence or something.

Their heads are on the chopping blocks right now. Discord is censoring the right if they have to choose between 4chan or mlpol I'm sure they would choose us.

The need to abandon the discord is obvious at this point. I don't want to start divisions but who in their right mind would still want to stay there even after this?
I honestly never understood them holding any attachment to 4chan even back then...

The hell you mean independence? I have been in the mlpol discords since day one and NO ONE thinks of it

>>2172
Also you make it sound like we are not on the board we are on the board like you are. We mostly use the discord to hang out, we still post on the board, participate in events etc we are members of the community just like you.

I'm inclined to agree. I don't know what "discordian" this guy asked but I've been on the biggest mlpol discord since day one and I've posted on here since the time it was conceived.

The amount of people I saw in the discord vs our poster count says more then 80% of the Discord sit in it and give communication via representatives. The discord has never felt like a home or apart of any chan culture- It is more along the lines of alt-brone tier. Then again, this is just my opinion after lurking, etc

The reason there is a disdain for discord users is primarily because of their namefaggotry and circumvention of the real community (when I say real community it is because mlpol the movement itself is an anonymous chan movement, not a namefag discord ego stroking circle jerk. We aren't alt-brony twitter fags etc.). The fact that we were freely given an extremely high quality chan website (actually nicer than 4chan itself at this point imo, thanks fallenpineaple and anypony else who worked on it) and some people still don't use it is sad. Simultaneously, these same non-users may believe their opinion on the direction that the overall movement takes holds any value, which is ridiculous. I understand that many discord users actually do post on the site and that's good. It's fine if you use both as long as you are still an anon.

I use discord as well and understand its appeal for hanging out with friends you've met. But when they go ahead and act like they can make decisions on behalf of the whole community even if they aren't mlpol.net staff, it's just not right and only helps to foster divisiveness and creates a dichotomy. Even though they are all well intentioned, their participation in discord shouldn't extend anywhere past friendly socialization which is totally fine. Again, what they shouldn't do is make decisions offsite while still assuming they are acting on behalf of the real community, especially if they never post on our chan board.

So this negative attitude would not be directed towards you two.

What >>2176 this anon said highlights that a problem does exist, considering the insanely disproportionate attention and involvement the discord receives compared to the chan site. Anonymous communities are anonymous for a reason and function in a very different way. Disagreements in the way both communities approach things are bound to happen, but mlpol is at its root an anonymous community.

Where do you get this idea we are trying to hijack the movement? There has been no moves from any discord staff member to take over the board or hijack the movement. I haven't seen the discords make any power plays on the movement.

Also the discords have a good deal of users that post on the board there are for more than me and the other anon who posted.

Anon, the culture on /mlpol/ grew separately from the board culture. I come onto here, then I come onto there, there's a complete difference in attitude. I've even seen members from the discord to here every once in a blue moon, but they don't mesh well. They feel alien. I can definitely apply this generally because at the core, they have isolated themselves from us.

IRC is a dying technology. The fact that it is somehow still alive amazes me.
There are free open source alternatives to Discord, ones which are more secure and actually encrypt their messages and don't store them on THEIR servers.
I like discord for how easy it is to use and everything, but you hand over your freedom by using it.

IRC is better for real time chatting.
Really though, using the main board is a better idea. An IRC or the like should only be used as a backup, mlpol isn't active enough that we need to branch out.

I think this topic should be brought up again since the recent rightwing server takedown has scared people shitless. So much that they're moving. I believe that if the site were to implement IRC, we would catch a lot of those faggots who don' use the site.

Why the animosity towards discord anons? They're still part of /mlpol/. They're just newfags who don't understand anonymity and the value of image-boards. They're going to lose their discord homes. I say we make them welcome and instruct them to begin lurking. Do you agree?

Yes, be a good goy and inform us about "bad behaviours".
Such kind of people will be delt with at the very first.

I have used ngIRCd. People should learn to Linux if they want to escape being controlled by others. The easy road is the path taken by sheep to the slaughterhouse. If you run things yourself you know who is in charge of your data.
