Instead of having the same fucking boards as bunkerchan, divide the site according to the different variants of left-wing political economy and group the ones that are similar in the same board. For example, all Anarchos on one board, M-Ls, Hoxhaists and Leninists on another one, Leftcoms and Ultras, Liberals and Sucdems, etc. Hell you can create one for Nazis and Lolberts where they can get reeducated after getting banned on the rest of the site, an actual gulag of sorts.

I guarantee you you will surpass the bunker in PPH and users because it is something neat and original. You can even create weekly activities like debates or vydia tournaments between boards while discussing theory. There is a fandom of political balls that can both be used as a guide to make the new boards and new flags, which will be a representation of each political ball. Similar to Krautchan. I can help you making these balls, I used to make pixel art.

Unless you stop being thet copy from bunkerchan no one will come here.

Anarchos, Leftcoms and Ultras should use /dead/ as I do.
Liberals and Sucdems can fuck off to Reddit or Twitter and Nazis and Lolberts can stay on /pol/.

Right now I think the sites main problem is that its spread too thin. PPH only matters if its below a certain threshold and imo eery board is below that threshold

The point of imageboards (or any social media) is to communicate with other people. If an average poster cant expect a significant amount of replies within, say… 24hrs, then why bother posting at all?

I would say the best thing that could be done rn is to concentrate activity into a few useable boards and then grow/scale back up as needed. Right now, only /leftypol/ has any meaningful amount of activity and its barely enough as is (see >>3325). We should focus on keeping it alive before fucking around with /hobby/ and /tech/ boards. Think of it as crisis management, after all if there are no posters, what is the point of the entire site?

In short, my proposals.

1) TEMPORARILY, get rid of all boards other than /leftypol/ and /meta/. Theres no need to delete them, just hide them like /dead/ and bring it back when the need arises.

2) TEMPORARILY, reduce the number of simultaneously active threads (permanently imo). From the catalog I count over 16x21 (336) active threads? thats seems ridiculous. It's cool that conversations can be revisited and picked up much later but it has the same effect of splitting activity too thinly. Again, better to have 3 threads with 30 replies than 30 threads w/ 3 replies. From glancing at 4chinz I would recommend 10x12 (120) threads, they have more but are also over a 1000 times larger. If it's enough for them, it's plenty here.

3) ADVERTISE, the site once it starts to pick up. It may feel gross and shameless, but it's only necessary to reach a critical mass of posters then you'll NEVER have to do it again. How is anyone supposed to know this place exists? It doesn't have to be shameless e-begging either; lot's of people found bunkerchan through screenshots tagged with the site name. The catch is it ONLY works if the site is worth caring about in the first place. Manufacturing fake screenshots is silly and all the advertising in the world means little if no-one cares enough to hang around. Building a good community comes first, telling others about it second.

I would question the benefits of getting rid of boards now that we have an overboard. The way they work now has a nice balance for preserving topics that don't get bumped often enough to not basically die on /leftypol/, while not totally cutting them off from an audience since they will intermittently be seen by overboard users.

3) would seem like it should be the main priority: When people look for /leftypol/ they need to be directed here, not to Bunkerchan. ideally we'd send /pol/ spammers there, obviously, but we're also better equipped to handle them if they arrive. That's the one big disadvantage we presently have. That, and perhaps a greater reluctance to reach beyond imageboards to invite a wider audience to become part of the userbase in the way that 8/leftypol/ was occasionally willing to.

Feedback received but this goes against the 'spirit' of /leftypol/ and would furthermore just suppress activity, so, we're not going to do it and I'm gonna anchor the topic.

If this guy posts this one more time, jannies should ban TOR permanently.

Let people just use normal TOR exit nodes if they wanna post here, instead of allowing direct access. Otherwise we will keep reading analspam for the next 3 years

Yes.

I think that's actually the main reason why /b/ was made in the first place since /GET/ was already a community and it'd be kinda rude to dump our toxic waste there.

We are today asking you about the idea of growing our webring (which should already include GETchan and possibly bunkerchan) with other candidates. The potential ideas right now are 7chan (which Comatoast moderates on) and 420chan. Both of these have relatively left wing communities but we are not sure yet.

In addition, we are collecting feedback on the idea of setting up onion access for Tor which comes with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Furthermore, we think that the majority of users support the idea of getting rid of the sidebar and replacing it with a generic homepage/splash landing page, but please let us know your feedback on that too. Prior proposals about dark red theme and comrade naming are attached also.

It's only been barely over a week from this site's setting up. Why such a hurry to remove those couple of boards?

Sometimes you have to make something available first before others start making use of it, as with public transportation and women in computer science. Why not the same for >>>/anime/ and similar?

It would also be better to have this on the site discussion board, or linked on the relevant boards where it can be accessible, because not everyone received the message about the possibly pending deletion until later.

This thread will be dedicated to hosting and advertising anti-bunkerchan agitprop. This thread will also be for discussing the current state of affairs at bunkerchan and discussing methods for convincing the people still trapped on flunker.

You can fix this in line 1303 in the /stylesheets/style.css file by changing "word-spacing: -3px;" to "word-spacing: initial;".
