I have to force a refresh to get new posts to appear. In threads the last posts are often missing and only appear through the autoupdate but with board pages only the refresh helps.

On Android, updating threads doesn't work a lot of times for me, the button doesn't even click. I have to manually refresh as well.

Hello everyone. This is the thread to make this week's proposals. There were no successful proposals last week, so there is no voting topic. 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: filter "socially conservative" to "actually reactionary" (this proposal has now not been accepted for 2 weeks and is STALE, it will be removed next week)

proposal: filter "socially conservative" to "socially inept" (this proposal has now not been accepted for 2 weeks and is STALE, it will be removed next week)

proposal: filter "stupid pol" to "stupid polyps" and "stupidpol" to "stupid polyps" (this proposal has now not been accepted for 2 weeks and is STALE, it will be removed next week)

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.

 No.13197

I've made a reply in >>>/leftypol/514133 to make sure most people want it cyclic.



 No.13108[Reply]

Despite being the most crucial thread for a healthy leftist imageboard, being stuck besides modshit threads no one cares about makes it slide by unnoticed by most users especially ones who primarily browse the catalogue like me. This is one of the major issues that have contributed to the illiteracy problem that has plagued our board since time immemorial.

Unpin the reading general and make it a cyclical thread like /ITG/ and the others.

With respect to the will of the users of GETchan, I propose removing both links to /GET/ and /ref/ in the boardlist and the landing page, as well as severing most other remaining ties.
GETchan and leftypol have diverged significantly enough to have developed irreconcilable differences. But more importantly, neither site benefits from linking to one another. If anything, attempting to maintain a relationship with GETchan is ultimately a fruitless waste of time for the administrators of both sites. Furthermore, I do not expect any noticeable drop in board traffic or post quality by removing such links, and it goes without saying that if GETchan users want to use leftypol they probably know where to find us.
I understand the historical significance of GETchan to leftypol, and I'm not suggesting that we go full Orwell and memoryhole it. I'm only suggesting that we opt to remember and respect GETchan "from a distance" so to speak.

>If you really want to point the finger you should not miss leftychan who currently allows lolicon
I think it's more than just allowing. I visited their /b/ a couple of weeks ago (I occasionally enjoy a nice chaotic /b/) and the ass thread was filled with loli. I don't care if it's an image, the idea and normalization is still disturbing as fuck. Requesting mods preempt any loli/pedo debate derails as off-topic. Unconstructive and ruins threads.

>And so begins the path to reddit. I really hoped people'd be more reasonable. Can a revote be called for later?
You are worried that this will be a first step towards entrenching a radlib hierarchy ?
I guess that is a warranted concern
This could be counteracted tho by filtering all the reddit social exclusion words, like "tankie" to "beloved comrade".
We could filter "class reductionist" to "class conscious" that would probably ward off the red neoliberals from reddit.

>transhumanist is a slur

No it originated in scifi for people who want to put technology in their bodies, it doesn't have any inherent negative connotations.
I guess the line between technology based body upgrades and self mutilation can be a little blurred, if medical and ethical standards are lacking, and it turns into a mindless merging with the machines mindset. But on the other side stuff like amputee-prosthesis and eye-glasses are also technically transhumanism.

>It originated in scifi for people who want to put technology in their bodies
Idiot, it got filtered, transhumanist isn't the actual thing I put in the post.
>a first step towards entrenching a radlib hierarchy
Yes, given that it demonstrates
A) an utter lack of humor and creativity in the face of slurs and insults
B) proves the rightwing meme about us being "over sensitive troоns" because of the filter to such a "cutesy" liberal term. Like I said in the beginning, if you get validation from a word filter you need to seriously rethink your priorities.
>filtering all the reddit social exclusion words, like "tankie" to "beloved comrade".
Absolutely based idea
>filter "class reductionist" to "class conscious" that would probably ward off the red neoliberals from reddit.
This, this is excellent

Following up on >>>/leftypol/503609

leftypol.org needs a permanent team of staff growth hackers to full time think of ways to drive users to the site.

TLDR: A lot of the strategies in the book are more in line with for profit companies and don’t translate well to a anonymous not for profit imageboard, however, some ideas can be translated.

The takeaway:

- Recruit a specific team of non moderator staff to handle social media outreach, and growth strategies, i.e. their full time “job” is to think of ways to drive more users to the site and then do that with or without the users help. At a minimum the team should have a designated “growth lead”, plus any willing people with UX, UI, SEO, Marketing, and social media management experience you can find and who would be useful.

- Create a Growth room in matrix. Call it MAUism (monthly active users) or leftypol.org growth engineering or whatever. Invite all members of the tech team + the growth team + any other relevant parties.

- try different ideas.

see: picrel

Paid acquisition is clearly the worst option. SEO is good but its pretty rare for people to find leftypol through search unless they’re already looking for it. Our users clearly either share news of leftypol through word of mouth or on other platforms. Therefore virality (memes/oc that hopefully make it onto mainstream social media like yt/insta, + stunts/trolls, etc.) is a good option, and so is integrations/partnerships. Perhaps sponsoring youtube channels with good content.

referral programs don't really work with anonymity

see: picrel

Forget everything in the paid category other than influencer campaigns, particularly leftist political youtubers.

SEO: good but insufficient. Again lack of auto archiving means a ton of SEO worthy content is wasted by being deleted. Cripples web rank. Having an SEO expert on the growth team would help.

Website Merchandising: Making a tshirt or something could be cool but not sure how this is supposed to help much with traffic. Maybe if people wear it to real life political events.

Contests and giveaways: Maybe, but only like once a year

Online video: .org should have an official youtube channel and peertube instance where the videos are mirrored in case of being yeeted from YT.

Social media: .org should create official accounts on facebook, snap, insta, etc. in addition to twitter and have the growth team manage these.

Contributed articles: Getting leftypol’s name in articles is good, esp. in mainstream publications. FP article didn’t seem to do much though.

Content marketing – see: picrel. Some of these strategies. I laugh at the idea of leftypol on LinkedIn pulse, could be ok for effortposts though. INB4 the PMCs are coming.

Lowkey shilling for SEO purpose – Why don’t a bunch of anons and jannies write medium blog posts and other articles in various places talking about leftypol? Seems like a pretty decent way to increase backlinks and increase the site’s ranks.

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?
