The rewrite of the codeIt 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).
Modified CloverI have modified version 3.0.0 to include support for mlpol.
Please add WebP as a valid image typeI 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.
Donations and Funding for MLPOLSince 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?
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.
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?
The Future of TorAs 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.
Global Flag and ID enforcementI 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
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.
Rule suggestionTo affirm to the influx of newfags, who may be confused by the fact that certain posts and/or threads seem exempt from rules, i suggest we add 2 of the classic rules of the internet to the site policy
Post Pinning in-threadHello tech staff,
youtube embedhi! Its cool how you do not have the input area for a youtube video, one can just paste it in the comment area and the link shows up to play it. Is there a js that you are sing to do it that way? https://youtu.be/fkhgw-ZXddM
How to fix "Generals", starting with AnonfillyI had an idea on how Anonfilly General can act less like a perpetually-circlejerking 4/mlp general and more like a part of the site.
Glimposting 2: This Presents A ProblemThey claim their existence and continued months-long vendetta against critics is part of board culture, while displaying ignorance of chan culture and any culture other than circlejerking reddit culture. They throw around buzzwords like "Mental Gymnastics" and "Buzz Word" without knowing the meaning of those words. They shit threads up, then blame those who hate them for the actions they chose to take. They lie, shitpost, waste time, and lower the quality of discussion, then laugh every morning they visit site and see that they are still not banned. They shitposted on 4/mlp/ until its death, and now they're here, like a parasite feeding on a new host.
Meta Suggestions and IssuesITT: post any suggestions and issues you have with this sites programming.
moderationFirst off: Sorry for using an old version of the rules but it guess I have lost the newer version.
FaviconsOur site's favicon suffers from a number of problems:
Mlpol LimitsGood afternoon Admin
Pirateboxes and "Alt-tech" in the storeHow hard would it be to supply pirate boxes, refurbished old laptops with Linux installed, meme berry pis, and other open source technology in the store? A lot of our users could use these devices, and we may even be able to attract new users by selling them.
Banning punishment insufficient.I'd like to officially make a complaint against the Site Staff of MLPOL and it's administration in regards to General Moderation.
Please Give Us The Option To Disable Flags When Making New Threads On The Main BoardThis has been one of the most agreed solutions to the ongoing "flad problem" (see >>3641 ), and I really think it would work.
Arabic ScriptThis site seems to have a problem with Arabic Script
ID Optionanal?How possible is it to make ID's optional for a thread? ID's were originally used on /pol/ to help facilitate debate. However, for most boards there are no ID's, let alone flags. Of /mlp/ like threads on /mlpol/ can ID's be turned off? In an example, put a toggle on when making a new thread to either allow or disallow ID's (with leaving ID's the default)?
PonyXI'm not sure PonyX is working right on my end. I've already C&P'd the raw code in the PonyX github link into Greasemonkey (1st pic related) - this should clue you into what browser I'm using.
FlagfagsWe're a small community to begin with and so having flags that are given to individuals upon request is an equivalent to namefagging. We bully namefags to stop when its inappropriate but we don't do the same with flagfags since there is an assumption that its not the same. In all honesty it is, last I checked no one else uses the vril flag besides vril, which causes him to become a namefag in everything but name.
Aryanne Thread 83This is the Aryanne thread of 4chan.
Board NavigationSo, not really a big deal since nobody uses anything but /mlpol/ anyway, but is there some way to maybe… Dunno how to say it good, say I'll just say it: make it so when you click the board links at top it goes to the catalog instead of the other thing that I don't know what it's called because I've never used it in my ~7 years of wasting my life on chans? At least if you're already looking at the catalog on your current board, maybe?
On the Issue of Green and OrangeSo there has been some discussion and content to come out of the Anonfilly thread lately. So there was a vote and orange is the /mlpol/ color? I can't help but look around though, and notice that we don't really have any on the board. Even /pone/ has red text< So what if we were to have our own orange text? I'll even go so far as to throw the idea of using it to completely replace green onto the table.
Quick Reply window issues>The Character Counter
Catalog SizeSomething really made me think after I read it on one of the threads on /mlpol/. Some anon suggested we shrink the catalog size so I asked myself, why would we need to isn't it as big as it is on say most 4chan boards? So being the autist I am I went on 4chan and counted the catalog size of every board and this is what I found.
Question...This has me a bit concerned, ponymoot. Thank goodness the software is open source.
A few words on the Glimmer issueThe following is a slightly altered (to remove the names & change the flow of the conversation to be more orderly) transcript of a discussion with a staff member of this site on the specifics of a particular poster:
Taking the Winterball to /mlpol/It's been noted & discussed that the drawfags of the 2017 Winterball have been having difficulties due to mod tyranny, so this opens up an opportunity for us. Particularly we can offer a haven for content creation for them on our very similar site. We have done things like this before and we can do it again, there's even other perks for the content creators besides convenience such as less shitposts & no Malay. Here's what we do:
the absolute state of /go/Threadly reminder that MLPOL own archive in Golden Oaks is borderline useless. There are barely any threads there and some of them have 0 replies at all. this site is 7 months old and we have less than 20 archived threads. seriously???
New board?So after /vx/ which turned our to be a surprising success now sitting at ~10.000 posts and /sp/ which was a moderate succes with a count bordering ~5.000 where does the future of MLPOL go as far as new boards are concerned?
Multi Picture UploadAny chance we will get a upload tool for MLPOL soon that enables us to upload 2-5 pictures at once without having to select every single one individually from a folder before uploading?
Suggestion - THREAD STICKERSoption to add site (related meme) Stickers as signifiers
The HI ANON Threads on /sp/The HI ANON Threads on /sp/ are getting out of hand, reduce the board quality, encourage more spam and reduce the genuine board usage.
IE injection detected?I hate this stupid motherfucker and always have. I'm not a religious of buy by any means, but this motherfucker is a sinner if there ever was one and I hope he burns in hell. She got the most manufactured smile on the face of Equestria. This motherfucker gotta be the largest con-pony on the planet with how many gullible fucks he's fooled with his tax-exempt church of partying.
GlimpostingDo you rememeber the day /mlpol/ happened? It was a beautiful place for members of both boards. Horse pussy chased away the shills on both sides, and being able to discuss good MLP freely with new people without rabid Glimmer waifufaggots shitting threads up was nice.

Questions About Content, And How To Build A Better BoardSo I noticed things have been a little dry over the past three day when I wondered: just what kind of threads are appropriate for this board?
SuggestionsThe 16 pages of threads make the board stale and the catalog a mess
Catalog too smallHello site team,
A much better idea than /b/ board.Try and understand what I'm saying please? yay.
POSSIBLE BREACH OF RULES 1 AND 2A person on the main board has informed me someone out there is advertising here on reddit, is there anything we can do about this?
Dublicate Files BlockageHello Team,
Welcome backFrom the spamming
Golden OaksHow does it work? Which threads end up there, why, how, who decides?
Android appI've been on this site since it started, mostly lurking and was hoping that I might ba able to contribute.
>MFW I Realize I Am The Cancer>Go to 4/pol/ to find some links for a topic I wanted to discuss here, because I'm too lazy to search myself
Bestiality in Canada, location of the ServerRecently a moderator deleted some bestiality porn posted on /mlpol based on the pretense that bestiality porn is illegal in Canada. However, I cannot find a source explicitly stating that it is illegal, but I cannot find one that states it is legal, especially since Wikipedia's source is essentially itself, because the worldmap for bestiality uses the wiki page, but then the wiki page uses the worldmap to prove a thing.
Making another subboard (with flags,yo)Sooo… I am currently at the discussion with /sg/ @ 4/pol/. They seem to be - at least some of them, tired of endless shillery and increasing retardation. So, the question to our beloved mods&devs:
Can we make changes to the Archive?So I noticed I haven't complained mlpol.net on mlpol.net in a while. This week, I'd like to talk about the site's archive.
Where does this place standEarlier I got a bit fussy with some shit posters on 4chan so I posted 4 pictures of horse cock. Two ladies sucking horse cock. One lady being fucked and one man being fucked. They were essentially the first pics I get when I search on my google. I am in Japan and I use google.uk to do my searches.
BugI just noticed I have 2 different ID in this thread:
Emergency Mode?On a former chan, when raided or when something would go completely FUBAR on a board, we would go into emergency mode. This would include raining horse cocks in java script, a flashing background that would cause seizures, and music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A13GCXIB-4 replace with this pic obviously.
EXTREME RaidproofingI don't know how moderation works or how feasible any of this is, just a few uninformed suggestions.
Rule Enforcement and Horse PucciWe do not have a desire to permanently ban people if it can be helped. This is because one shitpost does not a lifetime of exile deserve, having said that, bans will be issued for breaking the rules we as a community agreed to. manipulation of polls, misrepresentation, and other shilling will not be tolerated. We allow Tor exit nodes so that you can feel safe visiting what could be considered a website with controversial content. The occasional shill attack and spam is just a consequence thereof, and will be dealt with by staff if necessary. This was a staff wide decision; however please know your shitposts will not get you permabanned. We the staff are counting on you to adhere to rule 10.
suggestions for site improvement- add an edit function to posts
The Official /mlpol/ Easter Sunday Beer Hall MeetingGood morning, horsefuckers and Nazis!
Can we leave out #altbronies?Can we leave out altbronies from our raids? At least temporarily?
Battle DiscordsI am reffering to the topic of raids and getting more newcomers here but I thought this particular topic needs dedicated thread.
hxxp:s:// looks unprofessionalHow about the filter just converts the following to null:
The Rescue of R9KIf any of you guys go on r9k, you've probably noticed that the cancer that killed /pol/ is spreading there. That is why, I implore the people of this website to take the robots under their wings. If things go as I hope, perhaps you can bring friendship and happiness into those poor souls while expanding the user base all in one fell swoop.
Site Creation - Tech QuestionHow was this chan site made?
Global IDsYou know what'd be great?
not to be a downer butI think there are already shills here, or at least reddit tier peeps
Links and embeddingIs there any reason why we can't just break hyperlinks by default? Or at least pass on the norefer tag? It'd keep away the effort of having to manually break the links, and would keep errors to a minimum.
176.10 Not the best IPI noticed a couple of permanent bans. You may be interested to see this list.
System for "new since last visit"Is it possible to get an system where threads that have had new posts since last view of catalog get some "mark" or styling to indicate it?
On the topic of newfagsThe board, as it stands, is too slow. Old, post-1 April /mlpol/ would get 1k posts an hour; we can barely get a hundred on our /mlpol/. This is not a sustainable posting rate; while it is important to preserve the purity of this board, it will not lead to anything stable or powerful long term.
