Where can I access /leftypol/'s archive? there are some old threads I want to read

We don't have an automatic archive, only this one. Other people may be able to help if they have cached the threads or so on. Which threads did you want in particular?

There was a thread about Lysenko back in April, I wonder if it has been cached.

I have two questions for the owners and devs of the site

1) Does people posting many images cost the website a lot of money? Like I post a lot of images and I worry that I'm ruining the HDD the site is operating on because of that?

2) When I use a picture on one thread and then use the same picture on another thread, Is it uploading and hosting the image twice? Or is your site smart enough that it uses the first to use as a host for the second file?

Thank you that is all, I have a very huge images folder and don't want to destroy the site that I like.

 No.7263

If that were the case I don't think the size limit would be 100 MB.

 No.7266

I can answer a few of these. Essentially, I'd be more careful about flooding the community than ruining the site infrastructure.

>Or is your site smart enough that it uses the first to use as a host for the second file?

Nope!
Tinyboard and children (like this site) don't. It uses the Unix timestamp of when the post was uploaded as an identifier (in the address).
e.g. https://leftypol.org/meta/src/1622176382404.jpg
Usually that duplicate problem is 'solved' by not allowing duplicate files, but leftypol doesn't do that yet.
I know Lynxchan is smarter and uses a hash of the image (those 'random' letters and numbers) as an identifier, which is always the same for exact duplicate images.
e.g. https://anon.cafe/.media/135b31c5e2e9b2965140a47b4ed077e67b87433109b3c4821eadfbd0e3bf744f.gif (I posted that on two different boards, same link)

>1) Does people posting many images cost the website a lot of money?

Most server hosting deals work on a flat rate IIRC, like 2TB total storage, 100mbps bandwidth, possibly with a total bandwidth cap like 10TB a month. If so, you individually wouldn't be costing money by posting more or less unless you're hosting entire films. Either they need to pay for a whole extra tier, or they don't.

/b/ currently has an average of 12 images per thread, and 36 pages of 10 threads.
If we assume an average of 2MB per image, that's only 8.6 GB of storage needed to host /b/!

Due to the massive amount of pedophilia coming from /GET/ and the backlash in si/b/eria. Along with the Haz drama already putting the board on thin ice. It seems appropriate to create a discussion deleting the /GET/ link.

The current imageboard software (tinyboard/vichan/lainchan/leftypol) seems to have all been made and maintained without ever thinking properly about non-English letters. Let's fix that.

Have you had any issues with non-English letters? Please report any issues with examples here to help us fix them.
(If the site won't let you post a word, try posting it in a picture or writing it on another website like privatebin/cryptpad/pastebin and linking)

We already know that some word-filters are incorrectly filtering words with non-English characters (which will be fixed soon) and some letters breaking the post function >>6927 but there may be more issues that we can fix at the same time.

Post any features that have language issues: reporting, search, filenames, whatever.

The vichan docs don't mention that you have to specifically instruct the filters that multibyte characters should be treated as multibyte characters. Otherwise, by default certain accents falsely look like other letters to the PHP regex function. There are many false matches, but not all of them, as you've noticed.
This issue has been successfully fixed on our testing server and will be fixed here soon.

I can, but I unironically couldn't find or create a post to replicated the issue in order to make sure I fixed it.
Can you link a post?

Thread creation limit should be on a per board basis. It's silly that I can't make a new thread on /games/ because /leftypol/ and /b/ are being too active.

Ok idpol is against the rules. I get it. This is a Marxist board, we are trying to raise class consciousness. So then what is "class based idpol?" How do we invoke class consciousness without being "class based idpol?"

I guess you're right, that thread does have more than a hint of idpol. It probably should have been moved/anchored, but on the other hand 'urban and rural' threads are a staple on this board. Tell you what, you're right, I'll anchor that thread too.

Alright fair enough. I think everyone hates hypocrisy more than anything else. There is no way to argue or debate with a hypocrite. I was arguing I guess fascetiously you could say. I know you can't really moderate a popular viewpoint out of existence, but how do we elevate the discussion to actual changes we could make vs. vitriol against landlords and capitalist and crypto investors and whatever?

Someone makes a shitty thread on /b/ = most probably ironic, thus cool and good
Someone makes a shitty thread on /leftypol/ = unironically bad, thus deserves to get deleted instead of moved to /b/

Remove secure tripcodes. Tripcodes are supposed to be a disposable ID for times when it's relevant, not a permanent registration system on an otherwise anonymous platform.
