Stop overmoderating, especially on the side boards. Thanks!

Could you be more… specific?

OP that little bit of power is the most influence the mods will ever have, taking it away from them would just be cruel.


Before the split is was well known that Zer0 paid the server costs out of his own pocket, however I don't recall the mods ever stating who has been paying for the servers since August.

Do all the mods contribute a small amount or does one mod cover the whole cost? Whatever the answer, I think the users have a right to know this information.

FBI can afford to host it's own honeypots. The budget is negligible. Why do you think this country is hosted in the Anglosphere?


I'm just curious tbh.

Ok now we've got the meme answers out of the way can I get a proper response.




out of their pockets? it’s not exactly youtube


they answered this before somewhere, one mod mostly pays for it but the team chips in where they can. there is no plans for any kind of monetization of the site anytime soon and they'd sooner ask users for donations if funding ever becomes an issue, but it hasn't yet.

Why can't I edit my post if I made a grammatical mistake. Nothing is worse then writing a effort post rereading it and seeing a grammatical mistake that undermines your argument. I understand that the individual is responsible for upkeeping their grammar but some of us are challenged in these aspects, even if it's just a typos not seen. So basically what stops this site from letting anons to edit their post?


to prevent bad faith editing?


you can delete it and make it again


I would be in favor of an option (or even enforced) preview button like slashcode has, but I don't care enough to spend time on it. Actual editing after posting, I'm against. You say it, you stick by it. I don't rly care abt ur grammar, and I do care abt ppl editing their posts after they get called out on wrongness. If there ever is an edit button, there should also be a "see previous versions" button next to a label that shows edit times.


Proofread your posts if that bothers you. Hell, type them in a word processor first so it will catch errors.


If editing was a thing it should only be allowed before someone has replied to your post, once someone has replied to the post it should be unchangeable. Besides people can already delete their own posts.

This is insanity. Why are we allowing meme extensions on our site? Especially if they are a capitalist scheme??!?!?!?!

Legit pic extensions are:
>png, jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp
and p. much that's it.

Mind you, this site is not yet compatible (to my knowledge) with
which is the open-source alternative to .gif.

So yeah, whenever I click on a fucking .jfif file my browser (chrome) automatically downloads it instead of enlarging that shit like a regular pic.



pic unrelated ofc



stop using chrome
but yeah I hate jfifs, the only posters I see use them are irony poisoned meme lords anyways

Just because Siberia is a random board doesn't mean right-wingers and liberals in general shouldn't get banned for whatever bullshit they post there.

You mean like how mods larp as the central committee purging everyone and then do it


lol this is irrational and loosely defined moralfaggotry


never trust anyone larping as le oldfag like you can actually demonstrate it in any way lmfao


Kek this was literally the reason for being of the board. A good chunk of the community was people getting mass purged from Reddit, like when some subreddit banned cat girls or whatever. Many other such cases.

I know many things about the board you do not know. For instance, could you tell me about the action front?

this is a demonstration that I have been here a while because I know this and you don’t


yeah it’s not even explicitly badmouthing and i still got banned

What do you think her Catussy smells like?






Wouldn't it just be pussy? You know, because cat = pussy?



4chan has a system where unofficially all bans last 3 days. I have only posted one shit post and my most recent ban was like 3 weeks. I'm concerned I will get banned for a shot ton of time and not be able to use the site when I accidentally do something mods don't like. 3 days should be enough if it is enough for 4chan and mods here are liberal with bans.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


Bans that last over three days are pointless anyway while posting with proxies and tor is enabled. Nobody is going to abide by a six week ban when literally 10 seconds of effort can avoid said ban. On 4chan it's different because you have to reset your router each time, which is an inconvenience as we all know. Also I have no idea why the mods even bother with permabans, most other chans with a tor node don't issue permabans at all because of the futility of it all.

By now, personally, I must have accumulated a few years worth of bans on VPNs, but it doesn't matter to me because I only use each IP once anyway. Unless you're an idfag like Bee and leninhat, it's impossible for the mods to enforce a ban and tbh it's kinda funny to watch them try to do it.
OP I agree with your point in principle, but I don't think bans are that big of a deal at all. If the mods really wanted to discourage rule breaking posts they could either hire more janitors or block posting with proxies and tor.


Yeah, my main IP is perpetually banned it seems, the ban seems to renew itself automatically unless I pissed off a Jannie that hard that they do it manually each time, but now I'm relegated to phone posting to be able to post on this site.


how do you expect jannies to maintain a stiffy with such low ban durations? it's already getting hard to rub one out since users stopped complaining so much.


Moderation time permitting I think even lower ban durations might sometimes be worthwhile. A ban of an hour or two isn't even worth the effort of resetting your router on a board as slow as /leftypol/, but still serves as a bit of an annoyance if you've already got a message typed up and ready to post. If you've been banned for moderate idiocy and just need to be gently reminded to be less of an idiot in the future, that's about the right level to target.

But of course it depends on the reason for the ban in question.


You are right in the sense that if anything the small number of people responsible for 90% of disruption, bait, flooding the place with shit, etc. are not banned hard enough. Improvement would not necessarily require more organic robots (there could be technical solutions) but it could help.

>Inb4 go to >>>/meta/
I already did for the last month. However for one, basically no one uses /meta/ unless they also get complaints about moderation. And secondly, the administration has completely dropped the ball when it comes to feedback, thus /meta/ is practically useless at this point.

And as dumb as it is knowing the contents of the thread, I also appeal to the janitors to not forcibly migrate the thread, or just to delete it entirely.

Ever since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the janitor staff has went berserk with its moderation policy towards the discourse surrounding this topic. Any opinion veering towards supporting Ukraine, calling out Russian crimes, doubting certain enforced naratives that originate from Russian state media or daring to commit the ultimate sin of suggesting that perhaps this time NATO is the lesser evil, is subject to bannings.

First of all, not one of the positions I described above violate any leftypol rules (which so ironically get linked every time you see the ban notification). Not only rules are not linked, the ban "reasons" half the time state non-reasons that just boil down to "I don't like what you said", or vague "glow" responses. If, say, the rules were updated, like with the Covid denial rule, then at least it would be understandable - "alright, guess we aren't a non-sectarian leftist board for all denominations anymore", I'd say, "but at least the staff has the curtesy to say it out loud that we are all now expected to be putinbots".

Secondly, not once have I received proper feedback in /meta/, the board for giving moderation feedback, over the nature of these bans. And not just me, but other anons who got similar treatment over the pro-Russia frenzy of the administration. In other words - janitors literally aren't doing their job, refusing to elaborate their bans on posts that don't violate any rules and are intent to keep silent pretending like Brezhnev just died and we all are now supposed to listen to Swan Lake on loop.

And finally, out of the five or four bans I have received over the past month, all of which were for posts that are practically identical, at least 2 of them were overturned on appeal. No explanation was given once I asked why these were overturned but not others, or why is nothing being done about powerabuse. SPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Love how not a one of you Vatniks have a single coherent point aside from screaming insults and "glowie".


no both of you kill yourselves


Still no proof that Russia is "imperialist", just more sloganeering and russophobia. Yawn


there is you just ignore it because you are circlejerking about the Russian state for some reason
