Howdy, I am the BO of /endpone/. So, you're looking at a place that is pre politicized chan culture? I cannot tell you where /endpone/ fits in on the chart of what you like versus what you don't like but I can describe the culture to you and let you decide how it sounds.
/endpone/, despite its small size, does have something of a board culture that arose from a variety of influences organically. Conversations are often long and a bit marinading jumping from topic to topic in a handful of threads. At one point our ranks were as small as 2 posters, so you would end up talking about whatever, including personal life. The practice has been for any regulars that come by end up becoming know by a name or at least a nickname that is given to them by another poster because in this environment we are no collective and the conversations are individualized. Yet it was decided that trip/namefaging would still be banned and unlike Ponychan we still focus on MLP quite a lot. I dislike Ponychan's culture myself but I don't know if that would feel too Ponychanish for you.
/endpone/ doesn't not have a strong political affiliation (maybe right leaning but not extreme if I go by the opinions) but it is only discussed sometimes. Politics is enough everywhere else so we often avoid it here.
I don't know what your notion of a pure board culture is otherwise. That could mean a thousand different things. I could see us as coming off as somewhat too sincerer for later seasons or being too connected or outside the fandom "core" depending on what your personal definition is.
I've seen people take us as either a land of a few fags with mixed to cringe OC and mid level blogging or we are a small pony image board that has somehow managed to trudge along to being something unique and in someways more alive than a lot of other projects. though frankly it probably is a bit of both.
