...My dear little ponies. It has been a long time since we last discussed, in earnest, the topic of politics on /pony/, and on Ponyville as a whole.
Last time we talked, the mandate of the users was that we were too lenient with politics as it created conflict which broke rules on the site.
This caused our enforcement policy to learn towards moving all politics to townhall, and being quite strict about politics on /pony/.
It seems though that many users are feeling unhappy with this policy.
As the times change, so too do opinions, and we should not hold today's policy if it's based on yesterday's opinions.
So, i think, let us discuss, and ultimately let us vote, on what direction we think the site should go in, with regards to how politics are handled.
Open discussion/total free speech? Even stricter? Censorship?
It should be, ultimately, your decision, as a community. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
