I'll Start

Captchpa for Spam protection
DDos Protection
Archive site like 4plebs or desuarchive
Multiple images per post (see 8chan)
Visible logs on bans



multiple images per post is already a thing. Just press the + on the file line to add more.


No Captchpa. We'll add it when we need it. For now we're fine

>Captchpa for Spam protection
Not needed at the moment. When properly set up the built in spam control takes care of bots pretty alright.

>DDos Protection

I am not sure about this server but I know mine has DDoS protection as part of the package, also have it behind cloudflare. Maybe cloudfare would be a good choice for here to.

>Archive site like 4plebs or desuarchive

I am not sure about this one, not everything needs to be saved. But maybe a arc board for the best of the best? I mean if something really awesome goes down there is always people screen capping.

>Multiple images per post

Already in, but I plan on implementing an optional drag and drop system that will make it even easier to use.

>Visible logs on bans

I will try to make this happen within the next day or 2.

This is an excellent idea!

Correct but Mares are.

I have to say that within just a few days this site site has become really HQ compared to the other chins
well play, admin, well played


On 4chan you can directly embed videos in posts. Also, the catalog fucntion on /mlpol/ seems to be inconsistently located while on the main page, catalog, and in threads.


Oh and nice ass twilight.


I am still trying to work out the video embedding.

Both in the Index of a board and thread the Catalog button is right next to the Go to top and bottom buttons. Where would you like to see them?


I'd like them always at the top and bottom of every page on the site. Same goes for update button. Basically just like how 4chan does it.


There was activity offsite to get to the bottom of what was going on with false flagging. Do you want me to explain it here or make a new thread? It's relevant to the /mlpol/ community as a whole.


Ah, I getcha. Yeah Ill try and get that fixed up in a bit.

Sounds like it would be good for a new thread.


Ok i'll make it on the /qa/ board first, to clear it with the admins. It'll be up shortly.


I think archive is the best method for people to stop making threads like "Hi guize I was away for few months plz spoonfeed meh", then people can go through archives and see for themselves what they missed.
I'm an 2016 newfag but I managed to teach myself most of 4chan's history and background infos with desustorage


ban people but make it really short bans like for a few hours. the board is so slow that being banned for a few hours won't make much difference


What happened?


File: 1491810814029.gif (965.81 KB, 1227x854, 1459026734200.gif)

A bit more of a meta question than I would like; what happens if 4chan /mlpol/ comes back? What will come of this site? I'm already starting to like even more. It's a comfy barrack away from the war.


How do we get the news out to those still stuck on 4skinchan not knowing about this site without mlpol.net getting put on their url ban list?


File: 1491821825647.png (257.43 KB, 1700x1273, 55.png)

Ok, im just spooked about that "destruction of a group" comic
Where the woman doesn't care about thr hobby, but the attention she gets for being a woman in the ingroup

Like recently a female joined the discord and quickly decided to hop on vc. No content added to the discord, no discussion, just "im a girl come listen to my voice"


Even if they make a dedicated board over there, it'll still be a shitty place. The mods will continue to be assholes. The owner will still be a greedy idiot. It'll still be a contaminant board. It's like wanting to live in a ghetto. The only positive is traffic and we could just redirect from a dedicated board.


i don't mind females as long as they don't come here looking for attention like r9k


I would like to see a /b/ and a /vint/ board on this site. /b/ and /v/ have always been huge parts of chan culture.


I don't think we're big enough for dedicated boards, how about dedicated threads instead?


Females are gay


Definitely in the camp of selective archiving here for historical purposes.
In the cases of OPs & the like, screens those wishing to participate can post when/if necessary (& then even delete after; I'm a paranoid fuck) would be much better.
This site catches on or garners any media interest & there's an archive of 'greatest hits' in that regard, going to paint a nice target.


File: 1492134107864.png (202.69 KB, 915x409, ugly.png)

Some that could be better is the catalog.
The scroll bar is ugly and the text reaching down towards the thread below isn't that beautiful either.

Another things is legal protection for the owner.
I don't know much about the law but maybe you should put a disclaimer somewhere that you are not resposible for any of the posts and its 18+ or something.

Third thing is an advice.
If you get more janitors/mods maybe you should save the threads deleted somewhere so you can see if somebody uses his rights to harm the comunity.
If someone is deleting a lot of threads you'd be able to see it.




Maybe add this to css (for colored ids):
.poster_id {
border-radius: 10px;
padding: 0px 5px;
I have it in custom css, but IMO it's generally nicer.

Also code tags, in case they don't work.


I would like to see a write fag board for greentext stories and civilization threads.


It would be nice to have a reply/images/page counter on the top aswell.
And a reply button on the bottom too.


Being as the board's a bit slow a times; it'd be nice to have the ability to edit your post. I feel like an ass reading through a thread & replying to multiple people separately, & it comes out as several comments in a row from just me; or having to keep a reply window open reading the whole thread/running text file to make it all show up as one comment.
I realize it opens the door to people changing what they'd written after being called out on something; so it'd only really work if there was something akin to an(Edited)"button" that'd get added to the comment when you did that, that shows the history of edit(s) made & what the comment was before the change (potentially something akin to the image expansion from hovering over it?) Not a coder or anything, so no idea how much of a pain in the ass or any of that would be to pull off, if even possible, though.


mods still here?


I too want to see a greentext board, I like writefags, I'm trying to convince the other staff this would be a good idea
I'll take these under advisement and ask pineapple about it

im here, sup?


File: 1492222272507.png (286.76 KB, 1277x720, full (5).png)

Do you mean games of Civilization being played?


So I've been testing out cross board linking, and can't seem to get it working. >>>/mlpol/0000 doesn't work. Is there a different way of doing it on this site?


Back in the earlier days of /pol/ we occasionally had writefags do CYOA civilization threads on /pol/.


That certainly sounds fun. I remember something that sounds vaguely similar from /mlp/. Didn't pan out though, they're more interested in story than politics over there.


Seems to work fine on the test board >>>/mlpol/7041 lets see here.


So both at the bottom and top? Than can be done.

I have no idea how I would be able to implement something like that. But cool idea.


>>>/mlpol/9421 Test3


I guess I'm doing it wrong?









test 4



Ok I just tested again and this time made sure to reference a post that I made myself so i know it exists.

It worked!

Perhaps I just got really unlucky 3 times and linked deleted posts…?


The remote image url uploader is convenient, but it only allows for one image to be uploaded per post.


I remember mentioning somw sort of counter that measures posts per, etc…, like they do in wizchan. Is it ever going to be implemented?


File: 1503493278623.png (88.21 KB, 1896x992, Statistics view (2).png)

A statistics view, measuring posts per hour and per day, with the previous week as a point of reference, and measurements of the posts per board, has been in place for about 8 weeks now as a feature of the moderator-dashboard. A search of the chat-log shows that at the time it was created, when asked why the feature was not made public, the developer responded "no need for it to be public at the moment. It needs to at least work first."



how do we as users take a look at these statistics? If we cant, I would like to request access to them for the public.


Making statistics public was discussed among staff, and the Lead Developef agreed to make a form of post counter that would display publicly


The overboard was a great Idea.


I'd like to suggest that the SPOILER image be lewd


This isn't a bad idea..


Then again, it's also pretty good as it is..


Serious (lol) suggestion.
I motion that any attempt to claim a waifu would INHERENTLY void any PREVIOUS claim to a Waifu.
Ex. Dude a has Luna. Dude then claims Rainbow Dash. Dude would then (expressly) void claim on Luna.
Just a suggestion.

Dice rollRolled 1, 1, 1 = 3


I don't even know if I fully support the idea yet, but I would like to suggest a site FAQ. The rules are perfect as they are and while ideally newer users will have the decency to lurk, an FAQ could quickly bridge information gaps to avoid misconceptions.


We have a policy page linked at the top, which includes an FAQ https://mlpol.net/policy.html


File: 1504291940967.jpg (40.29 KB, 620x620, Cthulhu-pony.jpg)

So there is! And it very thoroughly expounds on the main site rules (exhaustively, even) while also outlining the definition (from de finis - latin:the limit) of permissible and non behavior. I must have overlooked it….


Motion fails


Stop resisting.
Also, wear your designated flag.

way to open thread from /ov/ in new tab without fucking up the page


Spoiler-ed files should have their filenames changed to "spoiler image" (or something like that) so that the filename doesn't spoil the content anyway.


Uhm, you might consider setting up something so that gaming doesn't flood the main page.


Why was the /1ntr/ quads deleted and every conversation surrounding it? There doesn't seem to be a rule against it, and this is unprecedented.


I can only assume it was to prevent long-lasting hostility…


But, I saw it as a light vengeance for the ngrs.


bumping, because I don't think anyone ever saw this.


Which boards are included or excluded from recent posts on the homepage can be edited very easily; /vx/ can be excluded from the homepage during game nights and returned if necessary.
I saw it (I see everything). I am not sure I agree. Having an idea of what the spoilered content is is often helpful in determining whether you want to view it or not.

>I saw it (I see everything)


Noted. Admittedly, I don't know that there is a problem, its more that I want to make sure that it doesn't become a problem/obstacle for the rest of the board. Tks


>The server failed to handle your upload.

Are Youtube embedded thumbnail possible on this board? Do we already have them?


File: 1507083532894-0.png (94.35 KB, 1918x386, 1507082644827.png)

Actually, what was with this debacle? It wasn't just this thread, but several other posts were deleted. The 800000 Get was "accidently" deleted too. It looks like the situation is only escalating. I want some clarification.


File: 1507084154697.png (11.09 KB, 641x116, mlpol 80000 (2).png)

According to the moderation log, mlpol 80000 was moved to /sp/, and apparently was deleted on that board


Why would you move a get post? Are there any sort of regulations in place, or this just arbitrary?


Over the past several days there has been a large amount of complaining about shit posts and low quality threads


Among the moderators?


Some, but mostly within the threads themselves


Alright, but I do think it was a dickmove moving that post. For now, I'll accept any excuses.


File: 1507085661048.png (142.33 KB, 808x989, rainbow_dash_shrug_vector_….png)

You really cannot please everyone when determining what does and does not belong on the mainboard. A couple days ago, there was a thread about the decline of quality of Rick and Morty in its third season. The thread actually had a nexus to politics because it talked about diversity hires affecting the quality of the show. It looked fine to me, but people whined and bitched and demanded it be moved to /sp/. Yesterday there was a thread about Tom Petty and his evident death, and people demanded it be moved. Earlier today there was a thread about Derpibooru being cucked, and people wanted it moved, or at least one Admin wanted it moved - it was deleted. I believe there has been more over the past several days, but I cannot remember. In any event, the thread in question was a single sentence with no obvious meaning, and no title. A far fitter candidate for /sp/ then some that had actually been moved.


I do believe it helps being more open about it. That's how it used to be handled.


What are you referring to?


Well, simply after a mod deleted one or two posts, they could have clarified why. It would have cleared it up before anything would have bubbled to the surface, and I still don't believe it's being handled well without explanation yet someone still deletes the posts. Mind the provocativeness, but there's unneeded agitation that comes from this kind of rule.


I'm assuming you're referring to GET theft drama? Either you have it, or you don't have it. Atlas has already weighed in and determined he does not want it. To this end it's been banned on the moderator side. But it's reappeared anyways


Derpibooru is so cucked, one of the site's head admins is a Glimmernigger pussy with shit-tier debate skills.



Let's make a concrete rule on /sp/: If the thread is also a political discussion that couldn't happen in a regular pony thread, IT DOESN'T BELONG IN /SP/.


The sage function should be expanded to include "Sage" (with a capital S) too. Anons keep messing up.


ok hear me out,Orange text.


Is it possible to make Mlpol view-able in other languages? I know language translation programs/sites exist, but is it A. possible and B. not ridiculously complex to develop a board-proprietary language option?
Certain elements are not translate-able, but for simple discussion perhaps?


Some games have that feature of auto translation already installed in real time chat, it should be possible.

How to do it? Well that is really complex and we should probably get some constant user feedback (like how faceshit asks for better traditions)


When I use foreign image boards, I just use the Jewgle translate to translate all the text on the page, but I only lurk, because I know my shitty translations would just fuck up the conversation.


It wouldn't need to be all languages. I don't know how complicated of an idea I'm talking, but Spanish, French, German (might get ppl arrested),… definitely Russian (you've seen the meme right?) should suffice.


I can help with Spanish and portuguese If needed but it's all on the programmer, really.
We should ask lotus or whoever is in charge of that.


I'll admit, this idea is growing on me.


That is what I thought, but some moderators believe "it's shit, it belongs on /sp/"
I asked our developers to see how well mlpol.net works with Google translate. I am not certain of the results
I guess that is possible. Would this be a feature like bolding?
>That namefag
What. Uh, I guess pink text is possible?


but /sp/ is for football


How do I make text in bold?



Might it be possible to develop a feature where an anon can be filtered site-wide? Something comparable to the existing filters, except cued to (without revealing) a poster's IP?


The site's Search system doesn't work very well. Happy the time when you enter in what feels like a very distinguishing phrase, the result comes out as "query too broad".


*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.
