We should have our own board for memes and communist aesthetics. Chans offer little in terms of political discussion but memetic warfare is powerful propaganda.


You mean unoriginal content? Because there's already an OC thread and /draw/


Memes are reactionary. If I wanted to see that shit I'd go to twitter or tiktok.

How much would post quality improve if posting garbage from youtube/reddit/twitter/4chan outside of itg was met with deletion and a ban?


so the opposite of the current mod policy


by about -50%, just because retards post bad shit from those places shouldn't devalue or cause removal of actual good posts incorporating that, idiot.


That is already policy

Can you ban the lesswrong libertarian retard from ruining any more threads with disingenuous and superfluous "arguing"? Thank you.


probably a Tor user


There's so much fucking ironic shitposting, trolls and bait lately.


still less than 6 months ago


Yeah and there's also way fewer people making worthwhile posts than 6 months ago too.


Why do mods allow shills for the fossil fuel industry to post here and derail every thread regarding climate change when every other type of reactionary basically gets banned on sight?
They literally add nothing to the conversation, dismantle any meaningful conversation that fan be had on the topic, and their argument half way centers around shilling dengism anyway
Why the fuck are they allowed to endlessly destroy threads for fucking nothing?


People are allowed to disagree with you.

Judging by this and the many other complaints you've made about /leftypol/ and its userbase, I don't think this is the right website for you.


he might prefer wizardchan

thanks mods i like this place a lot


Cheers, glad you like it, I do as well.


Why do anons keep derailing threads when they see
>Le tripfag
>Le namefag
Post and then complain about the thread derailment they themselves started?

Stay forever mad cause your pet project leftychan is at 2pph
After mods I wonder what your next scapegoat will be


Because most users are 2016 tourists that treat tripcodes as a registration system and not as a disposable identity meant for use in a few threads. Secure tripcodes shouldn't even be a thing, they're supposed to be crackable.


Underrated post


Everyone except his own narcissistic ass.


Newfags don't know about the right to vanish.

This is a discussion thread about the concepts of community self-moderation and self-curation, how they can apply to this site, and its interaction with the extent of staff-enforced 'quality control' (deleting reactionaries, idpol, derails, etc.)
There's pages of other threads for other topics so don't derail it with 'jannies should/nt ban [x]'.

I believe a discussion community should ideally be capable of self-moderating. There are some obstacles to this, and I want to ask what they are, which can be solved, and how it can be achieved.

1) Why curate?
In a sentence, so that the catalogs aren't filled with or endorsing 'the same thread every week', reactionary shitposts, idpol bait topics and other generally-unwanted or quality-degrading topics.
Most of the community consider this a detraction from insightful threads getting attention, a welcome sign to unwelcome users, or simply a bad experience. Too much of this, and the users leave and the site essentially dies.

1) b. Why self-curate?
In a list:
>so that the site isn't reliant on random volunteer jannies to stop the above from happening
>so that jannies can be told with confidence to not curate topics that currently would just sit at the top of the site all day if they didn't
>so that a raid when jannies aren't online isn't paralyzing for hours

Not your personal commune


seething janny didn't even read the post, all he fears is irrelevancy on an irrelevant site, how ironic.


Bringing janny drama into this really detracts from any seriousness.

I agree with some things here but the best way to do these kinds of things is to formalize them and have them imposed by jannies. Warning bans for bait takers, encouraging reporting, shit like that.

There's a big issue with not taking the bait:
Reactionary positions go unchallenged. How do you plan on dealing with this?


Not a mod but ok
You just want people to self-impose a karma system, it seems
Most problems could be solved by just saging shit threads, you don't need to do anything extra


A very good description of the problem.
While I would agree this all sounds very nice, I can't help but think it breaks down when it comes to solutions.
Just to counteract bait threads you need to make high quality threads, effortpost, make OC make people aware of the problem of the problem of the attention trap outlined continuously. That looks an asymmetrical fight.
>go unchallenged
Who cares if they are unchallenged if no one sees them? Compared to a shouting match over hundreds of posts this problem is trivial.
Sage and move on has been wisdom passed down through the ages for a reason.

why should mods be arbiters of value?


Pask needs to touch grass and stop wasting his free time. There's more meaningful voluntary work he could do that would get him out of his bedroom.


We are not cavemen. We use technology.

That would be too intelligent for leftypol
