The level of baseline knowledge to assume would generally be that the individual being educated has seen the G4 vanilla show in its entirety, from seasons 1-7, but has been largely if not completely cut off from the fandom until now.
If moving to /qa/ is necessary, please do let me know, as this thread was made for myself in mind, and I have a couple questions in mind; however I wanted to keep the OP short and sweet and open to any anon that would like to reminisce or educate themselves.

Cursory search about /mlpol/ history has brought up the following link.https://www.deviantart.com/chickun030/journal/The-complete-history-of-mlpol-Text-674811654
What I don't get is why lots of posters on /pol/ and /mlp/ seem to think this place doesn't exist. They talk fondly of the board on 4chan, saying that it was one of the best things to have happened to them both, but then just kind of sigh and go back to shitposting in other threads.
Lurking /mlp/ shows that they know well enough about ponerpics but not the site's creators or relation to this site. I haven't tried to mention anything about mlpol.net on there. Do you catch a ban if you try?
Another post really quickly so I can keep the clogging of /overboard/ to a minimum.
WTF does Andrew WK have anything to do with /mlp/? Does he or the band have an MLP obsession or something?
What does poni a poni mean?
Am I right in assuming that >belongs on /v/ has to do with the numerous Skyrim mods that came out with poner steeds?
Would IDW be a good starting point in reading up on comics related to the show, and then if interested move on to more fanfic-like stuff?
Saging to avoid a fourth self-bump today, but I realized there was a shameful lack of pone ITT.
The history of /mlpol/ is also the history of Football itself. To know Football is to know the very nature of all things. Get on your knees and pray to John Elway to bring understanding upon your mortal mind and he will guide you to the answers you seek.
John Elway 3:16
And Peyton Manning so loved the sport that he gave his only begotten Football that whosoever shall believe in Elway should not perish but have everlasting Football.
God bless Football and God bless American.
These are all that remains after 4/mlpol/ was first destroyed. There are further records, threads buried deep in the archives of /qa/, /po/, and others. Beyond that, what do you wish to know? There are plenty who have been here ever since.
Yea, for the Denver Broncos are Football, amen.
I didn't think to dig on 4plebs, thanks anon. Not much about /mlpol/ in particular thus far, save for the behavior I seem to notice in the parent boards as referenced in >>3406
. Do they just not know about the place, or are they content with letting tranny jannies and google farm all their data so they can be on a quicker board? /mlpol/ was kind of hard to find for yours truly, but then again I guess I wouldn't have known what to search for.
Well, there is one question I've got lingering. If this is something I find while lurking the archives, I'll answer it here myself. But I was wondering why Griffons? There's another race in FiM that impersonates ponies until it's no longer advantageous, wants nothing more than to bring about the destruction and enslavement of Equestria and its ethnostate denizens, and leeches off the friendship all the ponies have for one another. By contrast, the first griffon you see in FiM is pretty much just a dyke, and IIRC they're mostly just grouchy Eastern Mediterraneans as a whole.
Apparently something happens in season 9 that I don't know about with Queen Chrysalis, but afaik the original /mlpol/ happened before that. Is it just because people like their design?
