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.

- Pupper

>I'm thinking of using plain PNG as favicon as all browses support that.
It's not a bad idea at all, but the only problem with that is scaling down to lower resolutions, which could fuck up the pixart of the changed favicons, especially the (!).
Thing is, ICO files actually have multiple different resolutions of icon inside the file, going from 16x16 (the familiar favicon size) to 256x256 in steps of 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 72, 96, 128, and then 256. You can see a breakdown of all the sizes in pics related, including our current one.
Thankfully, you don't need to make every individual step: just 16x, 64x, and 256x should be good enough, and the software scaling takes care of the rest. ICOs also do PNG compression since Vista, so they can stay compact as well.
GIMP will export to ICOs in a snap, so accounting for the increments in pixart should be easy.

The "fun" part comes from the various mobilefag implementations of favicons. I'll just attach what https://realfavicongenerator.net gave me for pic #3 to show you the depths of webdev cancer that our favourite tech giants have decided to 'grace' your <head> and webroot with. I told you this was one hell of a rabbit hole!

Anyway, enough autism from me for today.

>So true, and thanks for support. Also sorry for late (really late) reply.

You're welcome, and don't sweat it.

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

*Half the time


We'll add this to the list of issues to be improved in the re-write of the code


Could we have Invidious links added to Youtube URLs, similar to the embed function? It's useful for getting around georestrictions and also gives you a download option.

Hopefully not too much work to implement, it's just the YT URL with youtube.com changed to invidio.us.


I'll add converting youtube links to invidious as an option for users in settings. Invidious links are already supported in new code when it comes to embedding.


I meant adding an [invidious] link in brackets after the URL, visually similar to how embeds show up. An option to convert all links sounds nice, but if it requires changing settings most people aren't going to even know it exists.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread.

What are the bump limits for each board?
21 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


/qa/ was never intended to be an active board. It is here so that anons who have issues that need to brought up to staff and moderators can do so. If you have an issue with participation and content, take it up on the mainboard with the posters.


>/qa/ was never intended to be an active board
That's actually news to me.


File: 1559534231022.png (5.61 MB, 3839x2159, 1829280__safe_artist-colon….png)

Alright, I will address this directly with a capcoded post, so that hopefully there can be an official summation of the issue. While I seriously doubt this reply will be accepted as satisfying, nevertheless this will (hopefully) be the final word on this that comes from me.

First off, I would like to say that I am not the mod who deleted the thread the first time, nor did I delete the second thread, nor am I the poster in >>4766 >>4769 and so forth. When the thread was deleted, the staff member in question noted that he deleted the thread on the staff discord. I asked why the thread was deleted. I did not get a reply then, but I have today, and I sympathize with his reasoning.

/sp/ is a designated shitposting board, /a/ I don't really care about, and I am not sure about /cyb/. Those are content boards. Their purpose is so that people have content they want to see, and so a "post in this thread each time you visit" kind of makes sense as it encourages posting. /qa/ is not a content board. It is not a shitposting board. It is not an entertainment board. It has a very narrow purpose, and that is to be a conduit between the staff and the userbase to report concerns, to ask questions about the site, and to ask questions about technical issues. It is not a board for fun posting. It does not exist to amass posts. It is not a board where "activity" is desired in the way in which it is desired on the main board, /sp/ and so on. It does not matter if this is a slow or "dead" board, because it was not intend to be posted on unless there was a need. Posting on this board is desired if and only if there is an actual purpose to the posting that relates to the purpose of the board. That is, post only if you have an issue, if there is something about the site you really want to know, if you have a suggestion to improPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>remaking the exact same thread after being told it was deleted because it was off-topic
I specifically made sure to change the wording of the thread to ensure it included a definitive issue about the board and opened a topic for conversation. After it was deleted a second time, this time with a ghost of an explation, I did not see it fit to make it again. Since the thread was deleted without the staff in question saying why it was deleted or what particular rule it broke, I, who had no real information from my standpoint, I figured the thread would be compliant with the rules if I changed the wording to make it more appropriate, but that was later revealed to not be the case.
As for the intent of the thread, it was just a casual attempt to increase user participation on the board, since the similar threads on /cyb/, /sp/, and /a/ seemed to bolster posting on those boards in the slightest bit. Since it worked on the other threads, I thought it would do the same here, since community participation is actually a topic I consider to really be important. If such a thread is against restrictions, then I'm glad to comply.

>First, that thread was a self aware parody of how the /qa/ board of 4chan, which, like this board, was intended as a means of communication with the community, was taken over by a bunch of entitled squatters who made vapid and inane posts.
I feel like addressing this part, just because it leaves a bad taste in my mouth..
First of all, 4cuck's /qa/ board was hardly ever intended to be a meta board, despite its name. It was reborn from the ashes of /q/ as Moot's parting "gift" to the site he abandoned. It didn't turn to shit because it was "taken over" by /jp/sies; it was left to rot and fester by mods who didn't care about the community, let alone their opinions. The "questions and answers" rebranding felt more like a sarcastic remark, because 4chan's /qa/ was filled with Anon's asking questions, and never, ever receiving answers; and occasionally a place where Hiroshimoot tested his site codes.
/qa/ was a garbage dump of a hidden board where Anons were commonly left to scream at a virtual wall until they got tired and gave up. Only the angriest shitposters ever gave it a chance, thinking if they screamed, and that's how this community was first reformed after the original /mlpol/ board froze.
I remember visiting 4chan's /qa/ for two consecutive days only twice in the past decade. The first time was when /pol/'s /rwss/ thread was shoahed, causing a horde of angry /pol/acks to flood in with complaints about compromises in moderation (which persisted long enough for one of the mods to get fired). The second time was when /mlpol/ was shut down, and all of us who knew and loved the board flooded in and demanded change, too angry to care that our pleas were falling on death ears. Both of times, I remember being greeted by the "locals": those scriptfagging, botspamming, corndog-worshipping troglodytes who squatted there like gypsies because none of the dozen weeb-shitposting boards on 4chan were specific enough to suit their autistic habits, acting liked they owned the board because they alone used it for anything but meta; those were the entitled faggots who acted like they were the "real" 4chan, responding with rude and irrationally hostile remarks to anyone who came there with a real issue, with repeated comments like "delet /pol/" or "go back there".
Now, I get it if it's desirable to mitigate sPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

File: 1499039031944-1.png (383.79 KB, 1280x960, rwss fire engine.png)


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..

And by the way I've forgot to mention, you can download even those restricted videos without to login with a Youtube account.


Badass, i was getting fed up with hooktube. because it wont let you do that.


Sadly it looks as if Youtube-dl.exe has stopped working.
Are there any other alternatives?

It happened to me too, but it worked again after I hit the "Update" option.


Google changes around stuff on youtube more times than needed, and to keep up with the changes youtudbe-dl needs to be updated ever so often. And as with >>4764 whenever youtube-dl shows an error an update usually solves it.

Does /mlpol/ still accept janitor applications at this time or anytime within the foreseeable future?
If so, where would one go to apply?
4 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


In the future, please refrain from publicly asking questions you've already had answered several times in several ways on discord, since you already know and/or can contact most of staff already.


At present, mlpol.net has a relatively high number of staff for the number of posts per day. Thus far, responses to spam and unwanted intrusions have been satisfactory. We are not seeking more janitor staff.

Sort of. A new applicant is brought in with the permission of Atlas, asked questions by members of the staff in a sort of Interview, and then a decision is made after every member of staff gives an opinion.

The first large batch of staff hires in the April of 2017 was done in large part by anonymous email applications, as well as by finding anonymous posters on the board that seemed promising. Since then, several applicants have been taken in by members of staff knowing them, with the last hire in the March of 2018. Turnover has been fairly low since a tumultuous first few months.


Well, for the record, I made this thread mostly because there's no actually official statement on the policy page in regards to this topic. I felt like having it answered here would make everyone better off.
I meant for the thread itself to extend beyond my own personal interests.
Thank you very much.


>asking questions you already know the answer to
>cuz you thought


Well, not really. I've been getting a lot of mixed replies by asking around discord these past few months.

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:

The image in question was not CP. The image was a clothed cleavage shot. It is good that it was deleted, but the allegation of CP is an exaggeration. I can say this with certainty, as I've been watching the Kitty thread like a hawk I'm also the anon who posted the Aryanne porn that Kitty livestreamed :3
Having followed the Kitty fiasco for some time, it is likely a/the image which was used by the thot her words, not mine who baited Kitty into sharing his genitals with her in private, who then shared it with, well, everyone. TLDR:
Thank you for your concern, but remember that the road to faggotry is paved with good intentions.

OK, I didn't know about this thread and the controversy about this chink.
Yes indeed I was shilling for Yang on /mlpol/ because I believe accelerationism is the way to go.
But if the management disagrees, then I will stop right now. No feelings were hurt.


Accelerationism isn't aided by jews taking power and pacifying whites.
We need politicians willing to give the common man enough gun rights to stand a chance at beating the leftists AND fighting the Globalist army to a standstill.

just came back to the site after a very long absence, and it's very disappointing to see this. the angry, knee-jerk reactions so many newfags have to things like NazBol and Yang Gang shitposting is pretty frustrating to see. facetious shitposting has always been an integral part of /pol/. generally, the people who have a negative reaction to it are newer posters who think the spirit of /pol/ is SOOPA SRS POLLYTICKS, and don't understand board culture well enough to pick up on the nuance of a lot of post-ironic maymays. as other posters have clearly pointed out, the intention of the images are pretty clear.

sad to see this community has fallen into the same trap. can't expect more from a community primarily comprised of people who had never posted on /pol/ before the merger, i guess.


This, tbh.
Memes like Nazbol and Yang Gang are just kind of ironic humor that you only find on /pol/. To dismiss it as "shilling", when those ideologies have 0.0000000000000001% chance of actually becoming relevant anywhere is just shortsighted. Even if you think the meme is annoying, it's not hurting anyone.
