Hello everyone. This is the thread to make this week's proposals. To see last week's successful proposals, please go to the voting topic for this week. We have these proposals which failed previously, that perhaps we should discuss again this week (I won't put these on the docket, unless someone actually brings them up with amendments so they might pass this time):

Proposal: Equip each board with a sticky detailing its purpose and rules. This should ideally include any and all of the various and more or less obscure bylaws, such as covid denialism being allowed in the covid-19 general but nowhere else. (this proposal has now not been accepted for 2 weeks and is STALE, it will be removed next week)

proposal: filter "socially conservative" to "actually reactionary"

proposal: filter "socially conservative" to "socially inept"

proposal: filter "stupid pol" to "stupid polyps" and "stupidpol" to "stupid polyps"

Once again, I must clarify that ONLY MODS CAN ACTUALLY VOTE ON PROPOSALS OR VOTES. Anons are free to have their say and offer suggestions and feedback to improve proposals/votes but these are only advisory and user votes are not counted for official decisionmaking. But who knows, a persuasive enough argument might sway the mod team to your cause?

Please reply to this post to post proposals for consideration next week. If a user proposal seems like a good idea, we may adopt it and make it official. Thanks everyone. Feel free to post your opinions but try not to spam or needlessly bicker back and forth in order to keep the thread clear and legible. Any off-topic posts may be removed without warning.

not suggesting, but you could wordfilter "touch grass" into "read theory" if you really want to.

These are the votes for this week. Please vote on the posts below, not this OP itself. Once again, please note that anons cannot actually vote, and their opinions are simply advisory. Thank you to all users and mods for their participation.

In addition, please keep this topic on-topic. All extraneous posts may be removed without warning. With that, here are this week's votes;

the fundamental issue as to why these votes have gotten more prominence recently when in the past we did it more informally as anti-raider tactics as you talk of is largely because of the big conversation we had a week or two ago about the ruleset and how it could be vague and unclear on what was situationaly banned and what wasn't. we largely aren't voting on a perma-ban on gore within the ruleset, hell, we are already effectively banning gore a la what you suggest now (targeted against the /i/ raiders mostly), but the codification of it as outright banned within the ruleset would deter most people from posting it and inadvertently getting banned, while like the idpol rule we could situationaly allow (and very explicitly and strictly moderate) the conversation so it can be "productive", however much productive gore threads can ever be.

tl;dr its a half-measure with a load of legalese innuendo meant to make it clear that we have a strict mandate to ban gore threads as needed, but as per most of our rules, there is enough flexibility to allow threads as we deem fit. unless we make a good solution to having a short list of de-facto banned things, this sort of de-jure system is the best way to not get innocent randoms caught in the crossfire of banning raiders.

theoretically anyways, I don't think we ever had a gore thread in siberia prior, so I kinda imagine this is all just a giant spam effort by outside actors, but I digress.

Can we have a board specifically for just general threads?
General threads are cool and all, but i do like to be able to click into leftypol and see new threads than i did yesterday. I know i can use the catalog but like, i kinda like not having to slog through the generals.

This is a general thread for discussion of the split, to stop other threads from getting shitted up.

Please keep it civil and contain all split/drama discourse to this thread and stop shitting up every other unrelated meta thread.

>raid thread
>leftypol has more jannies than their total userbase count


isn't their IP count at like 30?


IP count is an unreliable measure. Dynamic IPs change regularly. Do you honestly think they had over 200 unique posters last week?


how is saged thread at the top of the catalog did someone unsage? or is vichan fucking up

Reposting here because no one ever reads meta and because sage ruined the thread, sorry mods

I think that we can all agree that we need more people, more posters spanning from all the left positions, let's go past the "much PPH" meaningless debate, we barely have any effortposters now, much less drawfags and other kind of talented people, the split was a catastrophe in terms of users and we have not recovered yet.

A small imageboard may be good for very niche hobbies and things like that, but for leftism it's the absolute opposite,our ideology is supposed to appeal to the vast majority of people that composes the working class, we should strive to be an Imageboard for the masses, the more people the better (leftists ofc),we used to have a very large potential userbase on 8chan but that's gone.

I think we should start promoting the board, in youtube, discockrd, hell even on reddit Twitter and Facebook, there's literal thousands of people that are members of communist and socialist parties around the world, hundreds of unions and workers organizations etc, and their input could be very valuable, hell maybe we can get some Chinese people in here, or people from the Japanese communist party etc.

I think that everyone should do their part in your social circles and social media you frequent the most, casually mention leftypol if you have leftist friends, mention leftypol in breadtube videos, if you follow communist or socialist party accounts on twittee or Facebook invite them to come etc, if you speak more than one language the better, if you have the means to get in touch with people from China or Japan or you know someone who knows the language maybe we can try to get some people from those countries here, along with people from Arab countries, Africa etc, that would be awesome.

Leftypol should stop appealing to its own userbase and reach out for people, just like the bolsheviks went out to the factories to garner support for the revolution and just how the CCP talked with the peasants to fight against the nationalists, we should do the same.

We have a world to win!

Reposting from the internet shit thread.

This video was recommended to me just now.

It has 450 views now, but their channel has videos with much more views. The video is also good.

The guy has 3 Patreon supporters. It would be a great channel to advertise Leftypol.

So, call to action comrades:

If you have a throwaway account, consider advertising leftypol in the comments.

If you spare some bucks, consider getting the Patreon to advertise Leftypol. The cheapest option is 4.5 USD and the advertising is the same as the highest paid one.


this your channel? shill it in ITG as well


It's not my channel. I posted it to ITG too.
I have a feeling I've seen videos of him before. I'm not really aware of internet people besides the main ones.


More people to the site?
My opinion is more Alunya OC will bring more people.
Also how leftypol.org is exclusively by leftists & for leftists, but /leftypol/ once was on 8ch with other boards and politics.


TIL declasscucking memes is a now a DSA shill

How difficult it would be to implement a real time IP counter? as it stands now the current IP counter is useless, there's no point in knowing that the thread has been visited x times during it's lifetime.


The IP counter isn't for visits. It's for posts. The number of visitors is at least as big.
Total unique visitors wouldn't be that hard to implement, but "live" IPs like you're talking about is more complex. What about somebody who has the tab open and is letting the thread auto-update, manually updating instead? What about somebody who isn't auto-updating but keeping the thread open? What about someone who has the thread on their watchlist but isn't actively in the thread? What about somebody who keeps closing the thread and reopening from the catalog?

The question is: how do you determine when to remove the IP from the list of live viewers?


what would be the point of this though?

/pol/ invokes images of fascists, neonazis and other losers so why do we share a similar name with them when we should be trying to keep as far of a distance from them as possible ?(Falseflagging is against the rules)

Plenty of "left-wing" political ideology is just as anti-materialist as "right-wing" political ideology, especially when both are concerned about laws, liberal rights, the legitimacy of moral principles, etc. Communist politics are the only politics that are possible for a genuine materialist. It we take the materialist position as the default one, it follows that the board should be named /politics/. In his Politics, Aristotle's name for the best of all possible constitutions is simply "Polity", because for him the constitutions of all other polities are perverted in some way. In the same sense, communist politics are the only Politics and we should not hesitate to make that clear.


Change it to Commiepol


>(Falseflagging is against the rules)


If you really wanted to drop the /pol/, then you should've used /left/ on Bunkerchan when it still existed.


File: 1631845497224.png (4.23 MB, 1299x1325, ClipboardImage.png)

Yeah. I think that our name draws too much attention/influence from /pol/ or /pol/-adjacent morons.

We should seek to be our own thing and distance ourselves from them.

Could we filter the word 'tulcel'? It's exclusively used by [email protected] against anyone who criticizes imperialism and the democratic party.


>filter this
>filter that
How about you grow a pair
