Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread.
What are the bump limits for each board?
Aryanne Discord Nuke
As you all know by now, the Aryanne Thread Discord has been nuked, and all members of that server had their accounts disabled.
From what I understand, the /mlpol/ staff communicate largely through discord. I made my account more than three years ago for the purpose of communicating with the staff.
Have any members of the staff had their staffing accounts disabled?
Does the /mlpol/ have any contingiency of communication in case discord becomes unreliable?
Looks like the ziggers at soyjak party are planning to spam on the weekend. Will any mods online then?
What Are The Rules (pt 2)
Keep at it. It totally wont blow up in your face
/mlpol/ Policy Page and FAQ Discussion
With the revelations in these past couple days, it's become quite clear that the current /mlpol/ policy page is out of date and misleading, even intentionally so.
The most misleading statements is in the FAQ:
>What staff has administrative access to the server, and why?
>Atlas: super sexy owner of mlpol.net former /pol/lack, access because yes
This statement is untrue and misleading. Atlas is not the owner of /mlpol/ and has not been for some time now. This really should have been announced prior to the happening, but that's a separate discussion.
It is not acceptable to leave misleading information about the boards page, because it makes adequate transparency and community input impossible, so it really needs to be fixed as soon as reasonably possible. However, changing it is a very serious issue that warrants community discussion on the matter, so let's talk about what the policy board says, what anyone thinks it should say, and how it should be stated.
For starters, the topic above also relates to the staff rules, particularly rules #2:
>2. Staff will maintain a level of transparency with the community
This rule seemed clear enough when it was written, but now it seems as though it lacks specificity and is open to very liberal interpretation. The definition of transparency is easy enough to understand, but the wording "a level of transparency" is evidently vaguer than it seemed. According to recent revelations, informing the community about a change in ownership was not considered to be within that level of transparency, and leaving blatantly untrue statements on the policy page was deemed to be acceptable under said policy.
So the questions are is:
>What exactly is the staff's standard of transparency in regards to what the board deserves to know?
>What kinds of information are considered to be open to the community?
>How is the standard of transparency maintained and enforced, and what is the decision making process for revealing something or leaving it secret?
>What members of staff are responsible/accountable for making sure that the operations and issues concerning /mlpol/'s structure and community are disclosed to the public?
>On what basis is the community able to confidently trust that the staff is being honest and transparent with them, and how are users able to confirm this other than taking the policy page at face value?
>Does the /mlpol/ staff consider it necessary to inform the community about big changes in staffing, policy, ownership of the board or operations before they occur, or only after the matter?
>In the event that it occurs, do the staff have any policies concerning "sensitive" information deemed too risky to expose? (perhaps things such as personal information and doxxable data)
In addition, rule #2 outlines committments to the community made by the staff, but reveal very, very little about how the staff make decisions amongst themselves, how the staff is managed, and most importantly, how the staff policies are enforced. The Staff policy does mention some things thing in regards to rules are enforced and says in four places that staff found to break the rules face "punitive measures" up to immediate dismissal. Now, several of those lines are as-written described as zero-tolerance policies, but that is also questionable, because although rule #1 #3 and #4 serious and clear enough to call for those measures, rule #2 is, apparently, vague enough to be open to interpretation and has even be observably broken and disregarded either through premeditated intent or negligence before. Earlier discussions brought up the issue that zero tolerance policies might put persons on the defensive and potentially harm transparency. There are surely degrees of accountability between doing nothing and outright expulsion, but those degrees are not defined anywhere.
So, questions arise from that:
>How exactly does the /mlpol/ staff discipline itself?
>Are there degrees by which staff consider and account for alleged misconduct?
>Who is/are the final arbiter(s) for considering if/when actions by the staff violate the letter or spirit of the rules?
>How can the users of the board confidently trust that staff are accountable for inappropriate behavior?
>How do the staff con
The complications with rule #2 also proppose issues with rule #3:
>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
Rule #3 is in essence contingent on the proper application of rule #2, because transparency is necessary for healthy site user input, and site user input is indeed very, very, very important because it distinguishes /mlpol/ from other chans where talking this stuff on /qa/ for weeks on end doesn't actually produce any long-term results. The community cannot voice it's opinions on matters if they are not punctually made aware of them, let alone if the policy page misleads them.
So, questions arise from that:
>Aside from merely using the board, how are the staff able to ensure that their decisions represent the will of the community?
>How, and through what mediums, does the staff make sure that community considerations are taken into account and fascilitate user input?
>On what matters is community consideration deemed to be necessary in decision making?
>How often does the staff seek out direct user input on matters of any kind?
Ninjas has got to go, boys. No more half measures. It's time to show some follow through. I hate to be the one to have to say this, but it's been time.
Has anyone else had the feeling like the bump limits on this site are too high? They're much higher than those of other sites like /pol/ and /mlp/. On /mlpol/ threads stay up for years at a time, and I feel like it's broken the spirit of our old "no generals" policy. Maybe it would be healthier for discussion to have lower bump limits and simply have Anons make new threads when old ones hit their limit, to prevent stagnation.
I think they've been extended twice before since the start of this site on request by some Anons who were in certain long-standing threads, but i feel like that might have been detrimental in the long term.
Have you ever used the Search Function to search for a thread, only to find that its title is a word used so frequently on this website that finding the thread you're after becomes harder than it should be?
If each Thread was given a Thread ID, you could Search for that ID.
It would be like a Post ID, but just for the first post made in every thread.
What do you think?
User Policy Rule #8: No Generals
In this thread, we discuss the future of the "no generals" rule. Whether that be to remove it, re-confirm it, reform it, or clarify it, or decide how it should be enforced.
The No Generals rule is one of the oldest rules on our site, but it's also the least consistently enforced. Very many exceptions to the rule exist on /mlpol/, both explict and de facto. Some Anons have wondered if the no generals rule might be outdated or obsolete, while others have stated that it should be enforced more consistently; some Anons have called for clarity for what constitutes a "general" and why they should be disallowed on this site.
Share your thoughts:
Do you like the current rule? Are you just indifferent to it? Do you think it should be changed? Do you think it's fine as is? Do you want to see it enforced more consistently? Is the rule helpful to our site? Could it be detrimental? Just what is a general? Are generals a bad thing? Do generals diminish content creation, or promote it? What do you think about the current existing generals? Etc.
Poster IDs on /qa/
Just wanted to inform that we've turned on IDs on /qa/ for new threads going forward. It might remove some of the potential thread derailment and confusion we've seen. Reason ID was turned off on /qa/ initially, when it was created back in the day, was due to a limitation in the old code.
Hiding poster IDs and flags
When you choose to hide poster IDs, does it also hide all flags? Pardon my asking here, but it seemed less obnoxious than making a test thread. I wanted to know because I had an idea to make a thread in which hiding flags would have been preferable.
I wish to propose a truce between mlpol and soyjak party. If the two sites keep retaliating upon one another each time the other gets raided, there will be no end to it. Neither side will win, it’s just endless offtopic spam. Please consider.
What Are The Rules?
After a very thorough perusal of the rules, I find no entries for 'Attacking Users', nor 'Thread Derailing'.
What does Attacking Users mean, and under what rule(s) is that an enforceable (let alone bannable) rule. Likewise for Thread Derailing.
This wouldnt be a big issue (simple, kick them and be done), except that staff has reported as being aware of the situation and neither reversed the ban nor has taken any action with regard to the staff member who placed the ban.
I dont mean to jump to conclusions, but it SEEMS like staff has finally decided to abandon the pretense of having any tangible or actionable policy, and is simply doing whatever the fuck they want.
Could you reverse the flaga back to the famfamfam version.
I can understand wanting higher quality looking flags but the ones you're using look ugly.
I'm going to make my own imageboard from scratch with current memes like react and websockets and stuff.
Except that it won't be an imageboard clone. I want it to be its own thing. I don't want boards, i want tags instead and the user should filter by those, like the boroos do. Also i want to be multilingual.
MAJOR HAPPENING: /MLPOL/.NET TRANSFER OF POWER, SITE FUTURE IN QUESTION
ATLAS IS NO LONGER THE OWNER OF MLPOL.NET
THE SITE IS CURRENTLY OWNED BY PUPPER
THESE EVENTS TRANSPIRED "SOME TIME LAST YEAR", WITH NO PRIOR NOTICE
Events indicated by Lotus (Admin) in >>5498 and >>5500
What the heck is going on here?
What led to this decision, and how was it decided? What does this entail for the future of mlpol.net?
And, most importantly, why was the board never informed of this? If the change occurred last year, that should have been plenty of time for an announcement. When were you planning to tell us about this? The site's policy page says that Atlas is the owner of mlpol.net, but apparently that hasn't been the case for a long time now.
>2. Staff will maintain a level of transparency with the community
I thought this was supposed to be what distinguished us from 4cuck. Does this policy not matter anymore either? There was a time when this community held half a dozen strawpolls just to decide whether or not gay clop should be censored, and now site leadership is changing without announcement?!
What is happening to /mlpol/? What else has been going on behind all of our backs, and why aren't you telling us about it?
Where is Atlas? He's been silent for some time, but I thought he was just being lazy/disinterested, because he was always pretty chill about how he handled the site. He stopped doing Tea With Atlas a long time ago (i think the last one was around this time last year), so the site hasn't directly heard from him for a while. Never did he indicate that he would cease to be the owner of mlpol.net. This is totally unprecendented.
I've been a proud member of this community for nearly four years, but I've come to realize that I know next to nothing about how the site is run, or who really runs it.
Let's have a general topic thread about this:
How many active mods are there on the /mlpol/ staff?
Who has administrative access to the /mlpol/ server? (the policy page is outdated; it mentions Fallenpinapple, and nobody has heard from him in years)
How exactly does /mlpol/ vet its staff members, and what process did the current staff go through to get there?
What powers and privileges to /mlpol/ staffers have over the workings of the site?
Happy Birthday everyponer.
The management forgot to make the proper bread, so here it goes.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY everyponer and associated faggots!!!
Is there someplace else an anon can get those sweet, sweet pones? Is it down for good? Been at least a day or two.
Why was the "Promised Neverland" thread deleted?
I was really careful not to dance around with piss-a-gate, do you guys truly did not get the irony?, i just don't wanted to get the board involved in the controversy surrounding said "gate", it's too dangerous, that's why i called it a proposterous conspiracy theory.
Anyways, feed me on why was that deleted, but THAT thread with the cheese-sandwitch pic was allowed for around a month?
The rewrite of the code
It is I, Pupper, and I am doing a complete rewrite of the code, and wanted to get some input from you dear Anons on what wishes you have. My hope is to make the site more robust and userfriendly, and succeed on both these goals (or at leas not make it worse).
But before I get too far into the new code I thought I'd open up for input on features and improvements you want to see. It is still early in development and it is therefor still easy to change things before I weer of into a wrong direction and paint me into a corner. I am not planning on changing the overall look or function of the site just improving on what we have.
If you got any ideas, suggestions, grievances or fun jokes I am happy to hear them all. Developing something without knowing what you guys want can easily end in sorrow, so I want to avoid that with this preemptive strike asking for what you want to see.
I am looking forward to your input and I will note it all down (in this thread) and us it as help when developing the new code. I am not sure when the new code will be complete so I can sadly not make any promises in that regard, but I can promise I have begun with the rewrite.
Any dual-hemisphere owner knows the threads aren't gone, but I'm glad they got their dopamine and screenshots to post to their discord friends. In the future considering the recent failraid "oh wow we bumped threads off the list haha what an accomplishment" will there be any investigation into a global throttle for creating new threads? Their goal seems to be removing all the existing threads off the last page, but considering the database probably isn't being consolidated and cleaned on the hourly, they've accomplished nothing but making a little work for you. Perhaps a throttling system which would detect too many threads being created per hour, and prevent creating new threads until an admin toggles it back off? Or even adding a feature that retains old threads for 24 hours after they would have been removed due to inactivity, even if there's too many new threads, so that an admin can go in and remove any raid attempts after the instigators get bored instead of needing to flip a flag in the database by hand to restore them? Thoughts?
can I get a /mlpol/ discord invite? thanks
Did a little update to the code.
Hopefully it fixed some errors here and there, but mostly I hope I didn't add any bugs.
Search is now available. It is in rudimentary form as of now, but should be functional.
Feel free to let me know if you encounter any bugs and I will try to look into them.
>get banned from /pol/ and /bant/ (IP range ban)
>member that time the boards got merged as a joke
>member there were talks to continue this board off-site, maybe on 8chan
>decide to google /mlpol/
>find out this site exists
Holy shit. You red-pilled horse fuckers actually did it. And the site is still alive. I have so many questions.
Do you actually use this as a substitute to 4/pol/? Do you still visit there? You don't seem to have many shill posts. Do they actually not come here, or do those posts get deleted? Do you like frogs?
I guess I'll stop there. Still in shock.
This is what get when I click on OP's number to see the thread in its entirety. This has never happened before but it's very inconvenient, because there's practically two days of material inaccessible.
if i pay like 30 bucks can i see the source code to this shitty outdated pile of shit imageboard?
I was just checking out the site store and it appeared to load graphics for a second before coming up with a blank white screen. I'm using brave, and so as expected chrome also did not work. Loading the page in IE didn't work either, though so I suspect others may be having this issue.
Could we get more word filters on this site? They really made 4chan fun in the past especially on /b/ and we could use them to fuck with raiders. My suggestions:
Chud > Chad
Chudster > Chadster
C H U D > C H A D
Black people > niggers
Transfolks/trans folks > trannies
POC > darkies
Gay people > faggots
LGBTQ > faggot brigade
Communism > planned starvation
Marx > hungry Santa
Marxism > gimme free shit

How to deal with bullies ?
They are bullying me at school for 5 years,Somebody tell me what to do, I'm done with this shit.
The New Code thread is archived, so I post it here.
Green text is not showing up, partially.
I understand having a large magnifying glass around at all times can be a bit of a fire hazard, but could we bring back the search function for the catalog? It makes finding threads so much easier.
could use an inv to the discord ty all the threads w invs are old with expired links
More threads per page?
Could 7 more threads be displayed per page?
If the answer's no that's fine
pic unrelated I thought it was funny
im not sure if this is the right place to ask but, whats the best way to Download YT videos? i want to save some before (((They))) shoah all wrong think.
Register with Brave so you can accept BAT crypto, fellas. It'll probably stay close to worthless forever for a variety of reasons (it's been bouncing between $.20 and $.30 for like 2 years now) but it's (somewhat) better than nothing, low-effort fundraising. Plus, you really never know, right?
Staff Applications and Related Discussions
Does /mlpol/ still accept janitor applications at this time or anytime within the foreseeable future?
If so, where would one go to apply?
Hey, is there any particular reason why zalgo isn't allowed on site anymore? I remember being able to use it before the code change, but it gave me a message saying it isn't allowed now. This is a slight bit annoying considering I was using zalgo for effect in a green, so if this could be changed or at least explained, that would be greatly appreciated.
Did /mlpol/ die again?
It was offline as hour ago, what happened? Also post in this thread if the site goes offline again to make use out of the thread.
Hi anons, where can i pick up some sick 3D /mlpol/ models to play around with?
I made a post about the Rothschild email leak and it seems to have been deleted. Is that a forbidden topic here or was it deleted because the thread was of low quality? Also I am getting an error when I try to see the ban list.
hi are you gonna let ppl run the code for the new board on thier own site?
No /tech/ or /g/?
Any /tech/-like board? Where do I ask technology related questions?
Clickable "Auto-Refresh" thing at the top of pages?
The bottom of every thread has a clickable "Auto-Refresh" thing you can click to turn auto-refreshing off. Could one of those be added to the top of threads, too?
Removing posts and artwork
For a while now, artworks that I've done and commissioned have been posted on here as part of the OAT.
If possible, I would like to have those artworks, as well as lines of text that include the name Scylla or Kelpie, removed for here.
Would just like to have those off of here for personal reasons is all.
Is there a way a dice rolling thing could be implemented?
And it would give you 2 random numbers of 1-6?
I think this could help us maybe play risk, even with the slower activity
and I mean we could do on board rpgs but i mean
New Board Idea: /arm/
Intentional slow board idea:
It's a slow board that serves as a shared armoury of redpilling images!
The board's full of threads, and each thread has its own theme like "Jews", "Blacks", "WW2 history and the Holocaust Lie", "British history", "American history", etc.
The images posted in these threads are redpilling images, memes, and infographics.
Discussion on how to make better redpilling memes for those specific topics go in their specific thread.
It's like a porn board except you post redpilling images instead of cocks. You can also request redpilling images on specific topics if a thread for that doesn't exist.
Does fallenPineapple still work on NPFchan? There hasn't been an update in 6 months.
Suppose the COPPA changes and enforcement got too out-of-hand for YouTube bronies and they all had to come here, as the MLP community only had to move farther underground than it already is. How welcome would the ex-YouTubers be here?
Code tags don't seem to be enabled on /mlpol/, or the other boards. Is it possible to enable them, and if not, how come?

New Site Help
Hello fellas. I've begun hosting a small imageboard for a community of frens and their personal FBI agents as of a few months ago, and I was wondering if I could commission the mlpol devs for help. The site is functional and running on a vichan fork, but there are unfortunately several fairly important issues that need to be sorted out and they're well above my extremely limited experience (which includes using HTML to customize my Myspace page and helping my mommy make a facebook account).
I guess I'd also appreciate any written suggestions about how to correct these issues as an alternative if anyone thinks they have an idea or familiarity of what might be going on-and can articulate possible solutions in a way a grug can understand. Thanks for your consideration!
where to post /tg/ related stuff
I am interested in doing stuff like GURPS or Nightbane conversions for ponies, and then coming up with rules on how the will have sex with each other. I'm not sure what board is appropriate for that. What are chances of a sub-board for it? Also when do we get 5 files per post like 8chan had?
Custom 404 page....
Just a little thought that we might get some great OC from our talented drawfags and photoshoppers for a custom 404 page. It won't be seen as often, but it is nice to have a custom landing page for 404 errors.
During my trip to Fort Worth, I saw a Ford Mustang with a "New Lunar Republic" bumper sticker. Does the term have any connotations outside of the fandom?
/mlpol/ Store Thread
Might be a good time to start discussing putting more things in our wonderful store. The items there now are great, but we could use some more designs.
Why was I perma banned?
I am a long time poster here and I made a post about the Pacific Northwest. I did not advocate for violence and I don't believe anything in my thread could be misconstrued as a call for violence. I came to this site for political discourse, if you had a problem with my proposal you should have had a discussion with me. If truth was on your side then you would have made me look like an idiot. You do not need to censor your users.
Now if this was just a joke or something I'm fine with that. Mods need a laugh from time to time too, but could you please lift the ban?
8chan had a sizable French board called /dempart/ that was basically French /pol/ until it got Shoahed.
We need an equivalent here to give our froggy comrades a place to discuss issues.
Without permission we shouldn't name it dempart because the name comes from a specific website that started the board (démocratie participative).
Hi! I was wondering, how do you put the code in so youtube videos show up with the embed link instead of having the extra form area for youtube vids. Is that handled through an add onto the code? Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMuknRb7woc
Has /mlpol/ considered it's "deplatforming" risk and planned a mittigations and fall back position?
Has the mlpol.net team done an analysis of it's existential risks, and does it have a recovery strategy. I am not asking what it is, it should be kept private. I just want to put the thought in the admins head. No response is required. Thank you.
I have mentioned this before briefly in one thread but i would like to request removing the ability to filter all-together as it makes it easy for (((them))) to disregard content they don't like. Sure they might use a special user interface that only shows their content and only interact via that but still it wouldn't hurt in my opinion.
Why is the main board catalog so full of shit right now?
Also, general board quality/improvement thread, I guess.
Please add in some sensible manner that by using this site or by posting on this site the user acknowledges Israel has nuclear weapons. The meme is too funny to not be included. See >>>/mlpol/233588 Also digits confirm.
/pol/eague 4 Victory Art
Pananovich, one of the content creators for the Aryanne Thread and Syria General, submitted this piece to commemorate MLPOLs second star and back-to-back championship for this historical sports moment.
Due to the high relevancy of the event and the quality of the art I would like to request to put this picture into the global site overlay for ~2 months or so, as it was done during the first cup.

How Could I Go About Resurrecting /RWSS/ On This Board?
I started a thread back in the first week, but it got wiped out in a weeb raid, and the /go/ thread only saved a quarter of it.
To be honest, that thread didn't actually shut down any deathtraps, and I feel like it was largely due my lack of proactive leadership... It did showcase a willingness of the community to start the project up again though, and three splendid OCs were drawn.
I was a fairly active participant in the original /rwss/ threads last December, but my participation was mostly limited to safety-code discussion and pointing out possible fire hazards in screenshots that other Anons posted. I didn't make any of the threads, and I'm now at a loss as for how I could get the leads to resurrect the project.
The 8/chins/ board may have been forgotten (partly due to safety-inspectors taking a three-week winter vacation right after we got shoahed), but I deeply believe that the /rwss/ community is out there and willing to save again. Heck, even #rwss on twitter (originally created by education specialists to combat gender-inequality in sub-Saharan Africa) is still being tormented by daily shitposts.
Is there any way that I could reach-out the old /rwss/ veterans and/or restart the project myself here? I really do believe in the memes, but I don't know where to start..
CP on MLPOL/ Civil Conspiracy for Deplatforming
I regret to hereby inform Site administration of MLPOL that detractor operatives in opposition to an unrelated streaming site have begun to post identiying information of an Administrator and his family, including (but not limited to) Child Pornography of Minors.
The reasons for this I believe is an attempt to Fackelmann MLPOL into a Childporn controversy
to platform the site, since the detractor group as they regard this place as a supporter of their target. The Ring Leader of the group has expressed Disdain for MLPOL and its users, while attempting to protect a Violent Pedophile who , as of tonight, has committed a felony on stream with live witnesses, police got involved twice.
I'd like to point out that the Admin of Bitwave.TV is NOT subject of /cow/ thread of Thomas Dall.
I Do not possess nor have i ever posted any personal content about The Admin of Bitwave.TV and i disavow the posting of child porn or any detractor attempts to platform MLPOL or Bitwave TV.
I have not been asked or pressed by third parties to write this notification and alerted site administrations of MLPOL in advance via report of the posting of off-topic and partially illegal detractor content that has been posted without my knowledge or consent. This is based on a voluntary observation. Should Site Adminstration require further Intel to investigate upon the matter, I am willing to provide contacts who are in possession of more information.
Hereby I request all information about the Admin of Bitwave.tv
to be removed from this thread:https://mlpol.net/sp/res/9542.htmlThe list of postings in need or purging may include:https://mlpol.net/sp/res/9542.html#q10983https://mlpol.net/sp/res/9542.html#q11376https://mlpol.net/sp/res/9542.html#q11385https://mlpol.net/sp/res/9542.html#q11394https://mlpol.net/sp/res/9542.html#q11395
I thank site administration in advance for taking action on the matter and holding up site policy while preserving the topical content.
Why was the Yang Gang thread bumplocked?
It was evidently bumplocked just a couple days ago, with no prior notice as to why it happened.
As the title suggests, I'm looking for an invite back into the /mlpol/ discord. I was a pretty active member for a long time in both /mlpol/ discords, and the Aryanne discord, before leaving around a year and a half ago.
I stayed in touch with Anon27 for a bit, but my original discord account has been banned form discord,and I have no means of rejoining.
My apologies for posting a duplicate thread, but the last invite request thread is over 2 years old, and hasn't been replied to in a long time.
Request to Add Post Reactions
I would like to have a reaction feature for the site, like Discord and Kiwifarms have them.
Sometimes i don't feel like making a post in reply to another one and would rather bomb it with derogative emojis to discredit the responsible poster.
also, I would like to bring up adding optional symbol tags (and/or Text Tags) to thread creation again like i suggested one or 2 years ago. So people can without even reading what kind of topic the thread is about.
Starting an imageboard [LOOKING FOR HELP]
My plan/goal is to start an imageboard with a script like futallaby. but trying to start an imageboard is difficult. i was wondering if anyone was interested in helping me set the image board up. for more inquires just respond to the thread and i will give you my discord. i already have the domain. just looking for a good host for cheap.
Is there any /mlpol discord ?
Could use a fucking discord inv
How does one become a janitor?
I'm sick of seeing zald threads and oftopic shit stay on the front page for 45min+. How can I get a B& hammer so that I may help keep the board free from undesirables?
Please add WebP as a valid image type
I am finding increasing amounts of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebP
images in news articles. It would be nice to not have to convert them to use them in mlpol posts.
Hello admins. How can I contact with PupperWoff - a developer of NPFChan script?
Finally recreated this bug.
Step one: inline a post.
Step two: wait for new post.
Step three: new post in thread comes in as its own inline within your post instead of a standalone post.
Step four: ???
Step five: profit.
Donations and Funding for MLPOL
Since it was mentioned in a thread on the main board, does mlpol.net accept donations? I really like this site, and am willing to send a portion of my Patreon budget your way. If you do accept donations, is there Patreon like rewards system such as inside scoops, and donor recognition? If there isn't a donation option like that, is it being considered?
On another note, since I don't see ads and I don't see a donation option (besides the Patreon account that got shoahed), how is this site being funded anyway?
Is X degenerate
Why are these threads allowed here? Even 4chan doesn't allow "is x degenerate" threads. They are low effort slide threads and bring nothing to the board.
Getting /cyb/ off the ground
/cyb/ clearly needs to be more active, and some retooling may be needed to do so. I have a couple of suggestions.
>expand the topics of the board
Although, the board's use is quite flexible, there's always room for more. /g/ like content should be allowed if not already, more futurism related topics like eugenics, and other more /sci/ency things. Which comes to my next point.

This will inform board goers on a list of discussion possibilities, helping to clarify the intent of the board.
How to treat misanthropy?
Showing post replies in Archive, allowing the Archive to be searched, etc.
I like the search tool on mlpol, it's quite useful for finding specific names and the like. The only problems I really have with it is that it only works currently for the active threads. In addition, the archived threads never have replies linked, making navigation even more difficult. If it's not too much to ask, is there any potential we could see these things updated in the future?
MODS: STOP DELETING PONY THREADS!

The star formation and the psychology aspect IS IN THE SHOW ITSELF!

The Future of Tor
As you all may (or may not) have noticed, we've got a few undesirables in our midst. Some post with private VPNs, the vast majority post through tor exit nodes. Its been discussed among the site staff quite a bit and the overwhelming consensus is we shouldn't ban tor. While I don't agree with that 100% (I don't believe tor is anywhere near as secure as most people seem to think) I do agree that those outside of burgerland should have a safer way of posting without violating local laws against freedom, without moving to a real first world country.
That said, unfortunately for those of you who choose to post through tor, you will have some curtailed rights. We as admins (and soon to be the entire moderation staff) have the ability to turn off torposting at will, and quickly. We will do this as we deem necessary. If you have concerns (or notice a node has been manually banned) let us know, either through this thread or via email at [email protected]
Global Flag and ID enforcement
I hereby suggest to globally remove the ability to hide or deactivate User IDs and Flags on all boards upon posting or thread creation, including a removal of all meme flags
Lack of Flags and ID's is antithetical to the founding principles of the original /mlpol/. It encourages trolling, subversion and alien influence. I can not recall a single instance where the lack of one or the other benefited a thread. This option is prone for abuse.
Furthermore a sitewide ban of TOR browser nodes should be considered.
Hello! Just a humble Anon wishing to point out that empty posts are still possible to this day, and I find it doubtful that was intentional. Post issues you've noticed with the site here
