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?

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.

To the leftypol.org janny reading this: Not everyone here is some kind of .net loyalist, myself and several others are simply disgruntled with the ridiculous crackdowns the post-split group has indulged in, and were already annoyed at the direction you were taking the site in. Remember that it wasn't Evil Space vs The Amazing Jannies, but "I hate jannies, but I hate Space more" for many users.

Stop ghettoizing and deleting everything in /meta/, turning /siberia/ into /leftypol/ but without politics, hiding behind doxing laws that don't exist to protect your chatroom friends, whining about drama when your main board has become dominated by ecelebs, shilling how much you love yourselves as Anon and calling everyone that suggests you're shilling for janitors schizo. You engage with your users dishonestly because you suspect them all of being dishonest. A thief believes everyone steals. /b/ used to be a third of the site, now it regularly dies out. Bring back the spirit of /b/ and stop your fellow jannies treating /siberia/ as their personal fiefdom. Your attempts to rebrand /b/ (random) into /siberia/ (off-topic) to stifle discussion are apparent and not funny or smart, you are needlessly stifling the freedom of the site, often for personal reasons. You should not have allowed this situation created by personal interest to develop.

If you continue to roll back your "creative and flexible" approach to the rules then we will send our simple demands and desist when they are met. The issues we mention are practically the only demands and all we want is for you to assert the rights of the userbase to return to normal in /siberia/ and be able to openly air their grievances in /meta/, and for all mods talking about moderation to have to use their mod hash - there is no need to kneel or allow fascists and racists, what we are asking for is what we want. All you have to do is give the userbase their freedom back and no longer deceive them.

It's a hacked fork of a hacked fork of a fork started while this person was intoxicated ten years ago.
You wouldn't believe how much of the 'optional' stuff like logs and non-essential features are slightly broken all the time. I remember someone saying back on another vichan site that 'deleted own post' false-triggered on their Tor node sometimes and they never learned why.

Anchored for proudly stating you are the spammers. If you want a "free siberia" where you can spam about troons, incel shit, post dismembered people, and prolapsed anuses, please go to your own hellhole. You're not spamming the jannies, you're actively disrupting and making the site unusable mainly for other users. We merely clean up your childish antics.

Whatever, no point in arguing. I'm sure you think you're a champion of the people for making the site everyone uses as disgusting as your personal collection of images.

Thanks, that's what I figured, but I wouldn't know for sure since I've never moderated an imageboard.

There is a manual one for certain threads, so it's pretty small.
