I think that we can all agree that we need more people, more posters spanning from all the left positions, let's go past the "much PPH" meaningless debate, we barely have any effortposters now, much less drawfags and other kind of talented people, the split was a catastrophe in terms of users and we have not recovered yet.

A small imageboard may be good for very niche hobbies and things like that, but for leftism it's the absolute opposite,our ideology is supposed to appeal to the vast majority of people that composes the working class, we should strive to be an Imageboard for the masses, the more people the better (leftists ofc),we used to have a very large potential userbase on 8chan but that's gone.

I think we should start promoting the board, in youtube, discockrd, hell even on reddit Twitter and Facebook, there's literal thousands of people that are members of communist and socialist parties around the world, hundreds of unions and workers organizations etc, and their input could be very valuable, hell maybe we can get some Chinese people in here, or people from the Japanese communist party etc.

I think that everyone should do their part in your social circles and social media you frequent the most, casually mention leftypol if you have leftist friends, mention leftypol in breadtube videos, if you follow communist or socialist party accounts on twittee or Facebook invite them to come etc, if you speak more than one language the better, if you have the means to get in touch with people from China or Japan or you know someone who knows the language maybe we can try to get some people from those countries here, along with people from Arab countries, Africa etc, that would be awesome.

Leftypol should stop appealing to its own userbase and reach out for people, just like the bolsheviks went out to the factories to garner support for the revolution and just how the CCP talked with the peasants to fight against the nationalists, we should do the same.

We have a world to win!

We do have effortposters, but yes, we are lacking talent in the other departments. This doesn't have anything to do with the split since most normal or semi-normal people are only gonna be dimly aware of it. We had this issue for some time, it's been talked about since the bunker days to my recollection.


there are no effort posters because the site is stale and boring and you are not allowed to have fun because everything must be tailored so it doesn't hurt the jannoids fee fees uneducated shit opinions, random whims and personal predilections. Compounded by the fact that on the janny team sits actual libs(sage (you get the idea))


>go to a reactionary/right-liberal site let's say rumble.com
>point anyone deviating from the to go back to leftypol.org


Ignore the wrecker and continue the conversation normally.


it is impossible to ignore the jannies when they impose themselves unelected on the board(who else could it be but eternally seething anglo?)

Please don't do this shit

1. Ch*d is perfectly fine and just cause radlibs use doesn't mean we should dump it, it's a word that clearly riles up poltards

2. if your reasoning is "radlibs use it so we shouldn't" then why the fuck would you filter it to a slur used by the right wing? FFS.

Oh btw I've been on chans for years (since Mitchel lost his ipod) and I've never felt the need to use that word to prove anything.

chinlet sounds good to me


FAGGOT doesn't rile them up at all, they embraced the word. Radlibs using it makes the word be associated with radlib idpol which is a negative.


It was actually used less here than either reddit or 4chan until the polface saga, then shitposters from 4chan started using it here because it was already fairly popular there, then people mocking the 4chan posters mocking the redditors started doing it. We're at least four levels deep in irony at this point.


>leave website for 1-2 weeks

yeah i don't like this place after that mod drama


>>overboard catalog is in black and white for some reason
Just refresh.
The filter has been active for longer than the drama. You just don't use those words so you hadn't noticed.

Remember, it's only idpol when browns, blacks, lgbt and women start thinking they're people, it's only idpol when you barely mention decolonization. Advocating for a yt strasserist ethnostate is totally Marxism according to this shithole board

This is absolutely true, and it's a sign of Porky achieving their end goal of splitting the working class with identity politics, exaggerating racial issues and silencing talk about class issues to generate conflict and disunity. Meanwhile I've heard such Middle-Class minorities celebrate bombs being dropped in the Middle East because "the crew was gay" or "muh trans rights" or "haha dumb goatfuckers"
This is why First World idpol movements are nothing but virtue signaling; They don't actually give a fuck about black people.

>They don't actually give a fuck about black people.
Very aptly put, anon.


honestly yeah there is a tendency (not a majority) here of people who get into fits about idpol, but then turn around and say that "hmm maybe nationalism isn't so bad"


>Advocating for a yt strasserist ethnostate is totally Marxism according to this shithole board
link at least one (1) example of this

being a minority unfortunately doesn't inoculate you against yankee brain worms is what I've found

>check the overboard
>the most recently bumped threads are already existing geopolitical general threads
Can't we have a separate board dedicated for this type of stuff, like a /vg/ for geopolitical events and happenings, and then /leftypol/ will be left for left wing discussion and shitposting

maybe there's too many generals already and everything just needs to be an OP


Now roulette idea: every post a new thread



Just hide the threads or scroll down, OP. You know those threads are there, and they are generals for a reason.


obligatory shilling for my idea, for the nth time.

I've been noticing that, whenever I come home from work and access /leftypol/, there's always a bunch of /pol/ schizos raiding the main board when it's evening in America, late night in Europe, and morning in Southeast Asia and Australia.

This isn't a big issue for me since I have other things to tend to, but I just wanted to raise awareness to this moderation time gap.


We are aware of that. It's a consequence of the fact that the coupers where all North Americans and therefore we are now somewhat short on mods operating in the Americas timezone.
However, before recruiting new mods, we decided we should rethink our recruiting process and come up with explicit rules for all the informal ones that appeared throughout the years to make moderation easier and less arbitrary.


On top of that first reply, there was also an intentional delay before considering staff recruiting to regain stability and ensure backups were working (in case of sabotage).


Hello all. First of all I am not here to shill the other domain. I mostly lurk these days in the /USpol/ and larger current events threads, but I've been around a little while and I remember infinitychan and leftpol. I gather that the current schism is between the 'modocracy' and the 'postertariat'. It feels like we are in a battle to prove one mode of community organization over another, and I think it's clear that the organized modocracy will be able to run a better site. I've followed the split and understand certain personalities and their conflicts precipitated the split, but now the new domain specifically is shilling a certain 'user power' ideology.

I have a couple concerns I'd like to discuss with people here. They're not so much immediate but they may prove durable. The first is that the new domain has quickly shut down its pretensions to an /assembly/ board (it seems assemblies and votes happen in the matrix chat off-site, great idea, retards! Now everyone has to migrate off-site to voot!) and instituted a public /i/ board, which makes me seriously question the intentions of the site. They are a website with something like 10 times fewer posters than here, and they actually want to raid this board and accuse the modocracy as glowies. Leave it to the postertariat anarkids (is Sage here or on the other site?) to give every niche interest a unique board and posture for meme warfare when they are so few in number. I bring this up because while I'm not worried about being raided by the other domain, I am worried about this site getting a bad reputation from their antics. If anyone wanted to counterraid them, they would get utterly destroyed, but I don't want to deal with any more of this /b/tard shit pretending we're in 2005. Something tells me that /leftypol/ has moved beyond that, and gone with the 'rent-free' modus operandi. Raiding other spaces makes some sense when they are utterly antagonistic to us, but lately I think there are few at least on clearnet so I feel like our priority should be liberals and soft-left spaces that are to be beaten by jokes and just getting the people there to lurk here.

My second concern is /pol/shit inasmuch as it still exists. Over the last year or two I've found bunkerchan to be very hard to navigate for decent discussion, with tons of disruptive posts and posters and still find it happening here (e.g. leftcom poster in the recent "why do you hate capitalism so much?" thread). This comes back to Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

It's the same stylesheets, so that wouldn't be a problem.
I like the Jungle theme but I suspect a lot of users wouldn't want it as the default…


You're probably right. I gave too much credit to drama. At least this whole saga may be instructive of how NOT to go about doing things in the future.
It's incredible, really. They are saying 'our' 'spies' are reading their thread – maybe just for laughs. Their disruption is obvious. But I do think most pollacks know this domain name and not theirs and we will catch flak over it. No different than any other day I guess.
No reason for this site to change its looks. We will deal with polshit regardless.


I've been away a while thanks for the tip.


>e.g. leftcom poster
mods should have banned that faggot on sight
pretending to be a leftcom and being this illiterate with such shit takes shouldnt be tolerated

>Something tells me that /leftypol/ has moved beyond that, and gone with the 'rent-free' modus operandi

leftypol was always like that iirc, we don't raid shit, never did

>This comes back to the split

the simple fact they dont have the original domain and the situation here is "good enough" mean they will disappear eventually, unless they somehow suddenly gain a massive appeal


>mods should have banned that faggot on sight
but we do and did. You underestimate how much free time these people have and how much they invest in being an asshole on the internet.


uh hello, i am not here to say one side or the other is better but uh.. this one side is defintely better

fuck off lib(sage)

Reply links on /siberia/ still point to /b/, for example: >>>/siberia/125588

I just clicked one and was wondering where the fuck did all the new posts go.


works on my machine


Click the link, and then click the link in the post.


I think it's now safe to delete /b/ and symlink them so /b/ is just another word for /siberia/. This should solve the problem.

>not socialist funfilter



Hello everyone. Welcome back to the second week of the proposal system. 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: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations
Proposal: Harsher measures against both bait making and bait taking
Proposal: Include a list of the word filters in the FAQ or rules page, just somewhere accessible so people know the current word filters in place

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.

>Proposal: change the FAGGOT wordfilter to chinlet

This is retarded, you're literally killing a very important part of imageboard culture just to play with wordfilters,faggot is not even a homophobic slur at this point, this place is getting more politically correct every fucking day, I wonder when you will change the name of the site too.


>Proposal: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
clear guidelines that are visible to everyone would be helpful.

>Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations

This would make moderation easier , if someone does X then they get a ban of Y length. And it would also work with the previous proposal . You could have all the common offenses and their ban lengths posted up for all to see .

>Proposal: Harsher measures against both bait making and bait taking

Bait making, yes you need to come down harder.
Bait taking , you are at about the right level of harshness , you only really need to come down harder if it looks like the bait taker is working with the bait maker , or they are the same person.

>Proposal: Include a list of the word filters in the FAQ or rules page, just somewhere accessible so people know the current word filters in place

Again having a list of current policies with a brief explanation and the punishments for various misdeeds would be a good idea.


the FAGGOT wordfilter doesn't wordfilter the word faggot, it wordfilters C H U D to FAGGOT, all caps. a wordfilter from a few months ago is not "a very important part of imageboard culture".
also "imageboard culture" is the faggiest thing imaginable and should hold zero sway over how leftypol.org conducts itself, but that's a post for another day.


Change the name of this Anon to fuckface, because they're being a massive pussy.
>nooo I'm being censored for saying faggot. This board is so PC :(
Read the thread you fucking faggot. and if you couldn't say faggot, just get over it or cry more.

What a fucking pussy, seriously. Get a fucking grip.
