Hello everyone. This is the thread to make this week's proposals. 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: Reorganization of modocracy to groups based on siloed focus (ex: tech/mods/outreach)

Proposal: Elect an executive. Instead of voting on every issue, simply elect an executive, either a single individual or small group (individual is better), who is recallable by vote. The executive makes all decisions except electing themselves and kicking or adding any member from/to the modocracy. This will free up the modocracy to get back to the core tasks of tech, modding, outreach/growth, and other activities associated with maintaining and growing leftypol.

Proposal: - same as above except by sortition.

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.

I am heavy in favor of movie nights and would like to propose the utilization of the Syncplay software. This would however necessitate either distributing links to the files themselves via either BitTorrent or OCHs like catbox.moe. The latter would also allow users to stream the movie directly as that is a build in function of Syncplay.
I would also like to propose to kick the movie nights off with one of the translated Ogawa Pro documentaries.


Soviet films are a good idea too, a lot of the best ones have English subtitles and are free on Youtube.

From the meta thread:

How hard would it be to put a cool-down timer on posts? I'm probably the only mfer who would benefit from it but anyone who dumps anything on this site would appreciate it.


What do you mean by cool down timer?


Sorry about the major delay, I have been caught up with work. Regardless of the long wait, no proposals passed in this topic.

ok jannie


There’s only 105 people on this garbage forum at peak dumbass, this is a slow board


What's going on? the IP count has been decreasing fast lately


probably captchas annoying people


Up until the last two days there was a CP spammer from leftych posting in American hours, and mods trying captchas and cloudflare to block them probably drove a few people away.

Why? How long until we need a leftypol pass?

>>13775 (me)
seems it points to the same .onion is banned btw, so posting via the .onion doesn't work..


more testing


I had bought a bunch of domain last January after space purged us from bunkerchan.xyz.
Someone has been spamming CP for the last few weeks through tor. We are closing tor posting when we feel there isn't enough of us to catch it quickly until we recruit more mods.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

It seems your IPs are blocked when the cloudflare "attack" settings are higher than medium, which is the case for the main domains used.

>Someone has been spamming CP
any idea what group is doing this?
could you enable captcha for .onion posting maybe? shadowbanning via a cookie, ETag or LastModified should also be possible, even on a .onion
>It seems your IPs are blocked when the cloudflare "attack" settings are higher than medium, which is the case for the main domains used
probably because I'm on phone internet at the moment, which means many subscribers sharing a smaller set of IPs
oh and
mods = gods


>any idea what group is doing this?
Not a mod, but could it be the same people who spammed leftychan's /i/ board?

What happened with 8chan /leftypol/? Do exist other left boards or only this site?
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


8chan died 3 years ago lol, get on with the times gramps


8kun specifically banned /leftypol/ after 8ch died in August of 2019 due to some faggot reposting a shoter's manifest on 8/pol/ and bringing th feds onto the site. This is a evolved form of former bunkerchan, and it may as well be the only real example of a leftist chan.


There was an exodus to bunkerchan after the collapse of 8chan.

Bienvenido Al Internet/BAI is a Spanish-language Chilean imageboard full of leftists, although the site isn't about politics.


Why was my thread about workers going on strike to protest mandates removed? This is a VERY important story about labor issues.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


this isn't just a covid thread, its a thread about class struggle and labor unrest, the vax is clearly the superstrucutre of this labor unrest


Which is related to the thread it was merged into, albeit the OP of that thread is critical of the movements against vaccine mandates.

you just got janny'd. take the L and move on.


Another retarded move by jannoids I see.

Shut the fuck up simp

Why is this allowed?


It's not.


People should be capable to write what they want from the get go, keeping information on how to do it is counterproductive. Rules that make text bold italic or whatever should immediately be apparent to the writer
At the very least you could make a little expanding box that explains all this shit somewhere uo.


Are you retarded or do you actually not look up at the top of a page on a chan?


Are you larping as a reddi+*tor or are you actually a redd*tor?

There is not enough traffic on any of the boards other than /leftypol/ and /siberia/ to justify their existence. /hobby/, /tech/, /edu/, /games/, /anime/, and /music/ should all become generals in /siberia/. If this was implemented, these topics would actually have decent activity and pph because of crossover from /siberia/ posters, and that board would increase in activity as well. I know that, for instance, I would regularly check out a music general, but I rarely go on /music/ because it's so slow.

/leftypol/ is a shitfest as is expected from lefty politically incorrect. Siberia is literally /b/. /hobby/ is not 1 topic, it's dozens of topics as is /anime/ mashing it all into 1 general is retarded.
/edu/ is supposed to be slow, it's essentially the place for effortposts.
/music/ - people like to make their oqn seperate generals for seperate music types so it got moved from /hobby/ and has made both catalogs less cluttered.

This fucking idiocy about combining boards is exactly the shit leftychan pulled. to their own detriment and is cancerous.


Why the fuck did mods sage this? This is objectively correct.


Come to think of it, I almost never see mods give any kind of explanation when they sage or lock a thread. This complete lack of transparency is absolutely cancerous.


Probably because it's been suggested and rejected a dozen times. It's a dumb idea to put the slower topics on a fast 'shitposty' board just because muh PPH.

You chinletes really need to update your bot scripts :DDDDDD

Why is this board not open for teenagers (people aged 13-17), instead users must be 18 or up to use this site? Considering that most teenagers right now are tech-savvy and that teenagers are usually open to new information, especially ideologies?
If we keep doing this then:
- we will not have a good userbase,
- this won't be trendy,
- more and more teens subscribe themselves to lib ideas,
- a surplus of degenerate young people will (surely) be created, and
- revolution is rather hard to achieve due to the previous two reasons.

>>t. groomer
I'm posting this criticism as a 16-year old. And I sometimes noticed people being banned simply for their age. Even if it means asking for jobs and what to do.(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)


because there's unspoilered porn, mostly on /siberia/


its legal obligations. all under aged have to be b&.


Well I was just memeing. I don't think grooming is an issue because this isn't fbi.gov. But a good reason for not allowing kids is that they're stupid and immature in general. We have enough bad posters already without actively courting children. As an adult, I just don't have an in interest in talking to kids who aren't even smart enough to lie about their age.

Being "trendy" or popular is not a virtue in itself, it's a negative. The hordes of uneducated posters would overwhelm what good posters there are here and that would become the site. I'd encourage you to check out a leftist fbi.gov server that is "cool" to see what that would be like, it's not nice.

Oh, I see.
Well sometimes there are good faith teenagers that are interested into anticapitalist thought.
