Greetings comrades, and welcome to a great era of Spring Cleaning
! Of course, Spring Cleaning cannot be done without janitors, so to facilitate a good and clean board, we are asking for volunteers to step forward and offer their services as jannies to help keep the board clean
, we are also asking for tech-orientated volunteers to help with development of the site's code and features, especially if you have experience with web design, common website coding languages, and/or development of mobile apps
. Log-in to your preferred email account, and compose an email directed towards [email protected]2.
Decide on a short code word or phrase to identify yourself with, using it as the first part of your email and posting it on this thread.3.
Answer a short questionnaire, outlined below:How would you describe your personal political tendency?How long have you browsed or posted on /leftypol/ or her alt-boards?Have you any experience working with leftist groups in the past?How do you want to help the administration of leftypol.org?How often will you be available to your work described above?4.
Post your favorite leftist work: art, book, or other - be it as an attachment, link, or just the title or even an excerpt from it.5.
Send the email (double-checking it is to [email protected]
And that is it! The moderation team will take some time to review emails and get back to you, if your application is selected then your email will be replied to with a link to an element chatroom for a short informal interview before voting on your approval. Please be patient, as many people may be interviewed before you finally are selected.
If you are not selected for an interview, it will most likely be due to the desired quota of new mods being reached - do not be discouraged, there is always next time!

If it's just maintaining leftypol-lainchan i doubt many will be interested in maintaining that piece of crap. Leftypol probably needs a rewrite as has been discussed endlessly in https://leftypol.org/tech/res/11160.html
Bottom line is for it to be maintainable it will probably have to be written in PHP just in a newer framework like Slim or Laravel. Other languages are too fucking bigbrain and now accessible to plebs.
We can all agree that the code is not that great, but a rewrite is a huge undertaking - if you're up for it then come on board by all means.
>>1416408>Leftypol probably needs a rewrite
What do you think we're recruiting web devs for? That, and mainline support for a mobile app (hopefully, as we get our priorities sorted).
We don't have a hierarchy though there is a probationary period. Janitor/moderator is the same thing.
Why would you respond to someone and then delete their post lmao
Well I didn't but I can't speak for everyone, we're not a hivemind.
i would offer to help but im way too lazy to work
Mods beware of /pol/ shills trying to join the moderator team.
I will ban everyone I disagree with, make me an admin
There is a rebase onto vichan that I developed which is functional and live on a test server, just missing a few little extra bits like our captcha which can get pulled in from the leftypol-lainchan codebase. It's still got vichan's problems but is much better than leftypol-lainchan and has much-wanted additional features patched in from other forks.
A pure rewrite is only good for as long as you can keep writing, and to me seems like a huge waste of time. Look where Barbara Pitt's fork ended up. If vichan isn't an option, I'd just fork one of the two other active imageboard softwares.
So does this mean another vacancy has just opened or what?
Barbara pitts software works, it simply wasn’t adopted. Also it looked similar to a microblogging platform which is not strictly a Chan so it wasn’t a strict replacement for lainchan anyway
You're right, it works, but that time and effort could have been used to extend vichan or lynxchan (which already have eyes looking over them for major flaws). If we had put the added features we rely on here into lynxchan or jschan, we'd be ahead AND get upstream improvements.
If it's a personal project for other reasons, that's fine, but I recall them talking about it as if it was meant to be for this site to migrate onto. And it's definitely not at that level of features. Which is why I'm bringing it up re: #1416408
I always felt kinda conflicted about that situation because I always felt a rewrite was a huge time sink, but it wasn't me doing it and I know nothing about development so I didn't feel like I could be like 'hey can you just not do that, and work on the existing code instead'.
If you are from LATAM or Asia/Oceania. Please consider joining. We need people from your timezones and someone who lives in the equatorial south for diversity(TM)
>>1419499>If you are from LATAM or Asia/Oceania. Please consider joining. <We need people from your timezone
well then you would need someone who lives in LATAM/Asia anon, not someone from there.
Remember me, Comet? It's 302! The one who quit last year to finish its studies. I'm now ready for a mod position! (I'm off to uni by Aug)
for what? you've already killed this site, there's barely any traffic. instead of recruiting more jannies, you should kill the only thing left: yourselves
Haha I love it actually
Karen Ultra Mode
Oh yea, what's up? Just do what the OP says and submit your application.
funny tho, it seems the proposed solution of the staff to the userbase question is to turn more users into jannies so they have less normal users to hate
Finished HS yesterday with the last of the final tests, and now I have much time to moderate threads!>Do what message says
I'll go forward with it!
If you are normal, it means you haven't applied yourself to be better than normal
>>1422557>Finished HS yesterday
i think ur too old for the mod team, gramps
2 mos and I'll be 18, don't worry.
can i be admin????
same here, i mean that's why i want FALC
Since this thread is a mess let's bring it:
->Yes we need an app, or at the very least an update that is apparently not so hard to do but no one wants to work onhttps://github.com/PietroCarrara/Clover/releases/tag/leftypol-v0.0.25
Now what we need to keep
-We need to keep the chan system of dialogue, we don't need no upvote, no downvote, no suckmydickbefamous scheme. I'm personally fine with a transformation of the platform, but posts need to be equal in this website like proletarians are in a factory.
-We need a leftybooru but better and faster without ads and shit, the ads with boobs pussy and ass are just too much, and it shouldn't cost that much to keep a few thousand .jpg files on a server
>>1423688>Not using an adblocker>Unironically viewing ads on the booru
Your leftist card has been revoked by the Central Committee.
If you still need someone to maintain and setup a booru for you, let me know. I can setup that server and get it going for you. Reply and if needed I will e-mail the person in OP. I can configure it with high anonymity and security with minimal logging.
I use Tor browser
also I am the central committee
>>1425799>I use Tor browser
"self-improvement" is a fundamentally fascist idea anyways
Look, I don't know how computers work and I don't care. I browse the booru, there are tiddy ads.>>1426621
Improvement, yes - but for whom and for what purpose?
>>1426621>"self-improvement" is a fundamentally fascist idea anyways
great work guys. People from emerging countries love assertions like this from jaded westoids.
Lmfao cmon I thought you guys were based cyberpunk lainkinnies by pedigree?! Do you not know they complied with warrants from French cops?
fucking kill yourself then you absolute worm
>>1423688>not using an adblocker>in 2023
anyway this has been fixed. the ads are hidden as intended by css.
How do you plan on stopping sharty teens from slipping through the cracks
if this was a play on words it was very good
i have no earthly idea what "sharty" would even be a play on in this context.
It means "soyjak party"
I thought it meant that they were shitting and farting at the same time.
well that is basically what they do on that site yes
can some mod please remove all the furry porn from the booru. a bunch was added recently
Ooh can I be a mod? I’m really determined to end the pointless obsession with identity politics and return to a legitimate Marxist discussion! Imagine a discourse revolving around material analysis instead of whether transhumanists are le based or not!
I didn’t say trans humanist I said transhumanist
Hey, what's going on, 302 here. I've successfully applied for the mod team but I get this response as soon as I try to join the server:
MatrixError:  You do not belong to any of the required rooms/spaces to join this room. (https://matrix-client.matrix.org/_matrix/client/r0/join/%23neoleftychat%3Amatrix.org?server_name=matrix.org
What is this and what can I do about it @krates?
i am having this same issue.

So straight up Tankie uprising when? Ancom uprising when?
Ancom uprising has started. We are going to dismantle this society down to its constituent pieces, starting by annihilating the historical foundations this imperialist system is built on.
