Can we get https://tv.leftypol.org/ on the top bar? We have like 5-10 times a month legit interesting streams on there.

Moreover, if the above could be done, could we have a LIVE logo pop up next to it when there's actual "habbenning" is going on on the cytube stream (e.g. Biden stream, protests, live debate between RDW and Destiny, etc.)

Thanks. I think it would be a really useful feature if we had a dancing red gif next to the /TV/ topbar if ongoing shit were being broadcast by us.

The cytube link leads to tv.leftypol.org?

I'm not sure if you understand your question.

Why is using the email field invisible? Do you zoomers treat it like a downvote?

I wonder if sage not being noticeable in the default CSS plays a part in people not using it more often.

It's visible as a glowing name on the default (Dark Red), it's just that it's the same color.

Based, fuck web 2.0 for turning links into buttons and getting rid of underlined text.

We should add an Etherpad service to the site and shill it constantly, so that we can work collaboratively on documents that are persistent and are stored in a single place. If used properly, this could enable some fun and useful projects.

There is an Etherpad widget on the Matrix chat, but it only allows for one persistent document and it's not easily accessible to people on the board.

Does Etherpad have any protections against wiping, like version control?

 No.6076

>>6075
Yeah, both Etherpad and Cryptpad have version control, picrel is what it looks like. You can make a local backup at any point, too.

 No.6077

>>6073
I think it'd be bretty gool, it could be a incentive to some translation projects

 No.6080

How would it be different from using the board?

 No.6117

>>6080
Real-time collaborative editing of documents would be made possible. That isn't possible on the board.

Suggestion -allow more shitpost-y and /b/ like threads in /leftypol/ (things like hate threads, humor threads and more). This will atleast double statistics overall and give us a massive boost in posts and IPs. Please.

Why would I beg for it? If jannies want this board to die and lose all their power? I'd just move to another lefty imageboard, if this one dies due to the jannies

the "article" promised by d0llars hasn't dropped so the jannies would be fools to accept now, that there will be literally no benefit. Part of me thinks it was a last minute prank to try to get on the mod team here. He's probably gonna throw in the towel after this after its apparent, i would be surprised if he still wants to keep paying for bunkerchan month after month to support like 50 posters who are remaining

Imageboards are cheap, especially small ones. You could host your average imageboard on a $10/year VPS.

 No.6063

>>6050
I've heard that Dollars is paying much more than that, yes you could run a small board cheap but Dollars was probably hoping not to be a small board.

 No.6070

Honestly this whole shitshow is why we need some transparency with the mods. The thread on this was pretty heavily against Dollars bullshit yet all we heard was "we made a decision" from the mods without hearing anything. Im hoping they told him to go to hell but we will never know. inb4 more hidden drama causes another split.

Then he's fucking stupid for not sizing up when it happens.

Generals are boring and artificial. Cyclical threads are the cherry on top.
Organic threads about a concise topic that last however long they must are the way to go.

 No.6030

>>6029
If we didn't enforce some generals, the catalog would be 75% threads about the latest US news, or the latest US vs China controversy.

A universal constant in imageboards is that users are scared shitless of the New Thread button, but have no issue clicking on New Reply.

Hi. leftypol.org currently does not strip EXIF data which is an absoloutely huge oversight. Is there anyone on the staff currently able to fix this ASAP or at least post a link to your git with a sticky so others can fix this ASAP?
Thanks jannies.

If i remember I usually try to pust stuff in the memes I make such as 'leftypol.org, /leftypol/, bunkerchan' and related meme keywords. I have a hunch it helps with Search Engine Optimization.
Maybe the ideal solution would be to remove any identifying data such as GPS data without actually scrubbing the whole thing. Thoughts on this?
>>6010
Danke anon.

Perhaps have a checkbox to "Keep EXIF Data", with it default to "off".

Can you guys host a git.leftypol.org instead of using fucking microsoft-owned github? Thanks.

 No.6027


 No.6028

Strangely, there is a pull request dated Jan 18 for EXIF stripping that is still open.

don't warrant canaries have to be dated for them to be useful?

Train a neural network to detect wojaks and make it autoban anyone who posts one.

there are much less computationally expensive forms of text classifiers that can be used than neural nets. Running deep neural nets at scale for EACH AND EVERY POST would be a nightmare imo

Just using a few simple regex rules should be sufficient for 80% of cases

There actually is Tesseract OCR code in the codebase, not sure how well it works.
