I'll keep it as brief as possible.
Note: This is only ONE mod's idea. It does NOT represent any other mod's wishes except my own.

- Geo-political content and happening threads represent a large portion of threads on /leftypol/ (close to half?).
- Lesser known happenings, news, global south happening generals, but specifically non-geo-political leftist discussion topics, sink more quickly.
- First few pages are high value real estate.

- Split /leftypol/ board into two clusters.
- Cluster 1: geo-politics, history, happenings, news, country/region generals, etc.
- Cluster 2: Anything that isn't the above, viz. general leftist discussions, theory, etc.

I use the overboard, so it doesn't affect me. However I would presume most people bookmark 1 or 2 boards and run it with, thus diluting content and posting even further by breaking down /leftypol/. Those new spaces and discussions dedicated for theory would follow the same fate as /edu/ or /tech/.


Actually, cringe. There should be strictly 3 boards:
/leftypol/ (news, generals, everything)
/edu/ (/armchair/, /theory/, etc)
/hobby/ (replaces hobby, tech, game, etc)
There is no reason to have separate boards for the hobbies, it just means people go to their page and don't post in other threads. This means more focus on leftypol and posting with effort, and directly theoretical questions going to /edu/. The current state is just a mess and means no one has any reason to actually post something of reasonable quality. /b/ also adds to this, you go on the overboard and see lots of cringe and porn your brain is going to go into cringe mode.

This is similar to what you're proposing but there's no need for cluster 1 to be so split. This is leftypol and the main focus of posting should be leftypol, but the question is how do we foster a good leftypol where people want to make good posts?


>This is leftypol and the main focus of posting should be leftypol, but the question is how do we foster a good leftypol where people want to make good posts?
Get more people, direct them to post on /leftypol/ in the first instance, then have the mods move the bad posts out of /leftypol/ and ban the ones who make terrible posts.
This is greatly oversimplified, but it is genuinely the most functional strategy.

Also tbh with the existence of the overboard there's far less downside to having smaller boards. Rather than messing with the boards themselves I'd just look at ways of making sure the smaller boards retain some prominence on the overboard. (i.e. rather than just having a simple list of most recently bumped threads, perhaps having some kind of system where slow board threads remain prominent for a little bit longer when bumped.)


I agree modding is important here but the structure is what creates a lot of the behavior we see. We don't need more people it's like a social-reward problem. This has become a /b/ environment and that has consequences for the poster mindset.
I personally don't really like the overboard and choosing between 3 boards would be a lot easier and more efficient for users. The overboard creates this 'messy' environment like I've said before. Especially because the custom for smaller chans is to almost always use the overboard by default since they're so dead (leftypol is actually a bit too busy for that so I think we should move past it). This means we don't need to make new sorting algorithms or anything too.


I sooner agree with merging existing boards than creating any new ones. The current boards work fine, and hobby, edu, anime and music ae basically dead, with games not far behind. If the mods want to reintroduce their /roulette/ scheme i won't care but i think further subdividing /leftypol/ is a monumentally stupid idea.


Guys….what the actual fuck?

This drama is a fucking embarassment. More strikingly, it's typical of leftist autism in general. Let this be a warning to you kids—IRL leftist organizations are as if not more autistic than this. Just a bunch of loser LARPers who will never achieve their spooked revolution.

Read Stirner and GTFO this site while you can.

I've never been in an org when someone who was trusted with resources, eg money, server space, whatever, takes everything and starts a new org with his buddies. But, I've only ever been in orgs with non-insane not terminally online people.

This wouldn't have been possible if the sys admin hadn't abused his power. It all hinged on him and the lack of leftists values of his lackeys.

Why are you still here? GTFO like you said and stop demoralization propaganda. /leftypol/ is a spook. Your own life is a spook. Shoot yourself in front of a mass grave.

1. publicize the politics of the moderation team in its entirety
2. purge the rightists and recruit more mods among communists in their place
3. start curating content and make reactionary shitposting have actual consequences after its NOT SAGED but DELETED instead
4. start enforcing no idpol and no sectarianism rules with an iron fist
5. take an actually active role as moderators instead of being in effect nothing but the complaints department you have to in practice create a matrix account for because the report function is completely useless
6. fuck growth, fuck pph, fuck numbers since what chasing them has done is more harm than good for our community
7. bring the hammer down on /b/ by gassing the reactionaries and taking out their trash
8. bring the hammer down on the anti-/GET/ defamation which has zero evidence to back up the claim that it is a pedophile site or that it has pedophiles in its moderation, as the forced rumor goes
9. if soyjak.party does not behave or stop its raids, ban all soyjaks and delete the /soy/ general
10. go harder on OPs than regular posts, delete rulebreakers and sage non-rulebreaking bait or shitposts

just some ideas. feedback, criticism and adding to these is very much appreciated

>objective moderation


I represent the userbase


>They want
>a total ban on avatarfags
I don't. Who gives a fuck. I'd rather ban porn.


The userbase doesn't think exactly like you do. I also don't mind avatarfags as long as they're leftists and friendly (which they are, most of the time). Soyjak spam, on the other hand, is spam.


jannies suggested to me that instead of a blanket ban on soyjaks as for example reaction images, soyscript OPs would be getting the stomp, which I find sensible, maintaining board quality in addition to not being too intrusive

With all these sudden unexpected changes regarding the community, there is a lot of confusion going around. All these splits and offshoot websites can get confusing, this chart should help clear up all the misinformation.

Nasty people tbh.


I'm not white.


create a megaoverboard for all 3 of the sites


That would imply cooperation and the autists in the staff of all three sites are unaware of how that works.


Nah, you can just write a scapper that takes the posts and puts them all together.

File: 1628468575436.jpg (261.48 KB, 1435x1616, 1627323564790.jpg)


The problem with the site is that the staff believe they are above the rules, and this is because the rules are up to personal interpretation. The staff believe they are a superior clique above the userbase, and that this site should be moderated according to their will. In order to stop another staff chimp out you need to engage in a different set of policies or else this shit will happen again every now and then.

1.- Purge them every four-six months. Under no circumstances should the staff stay in power for over four-six months. This just causes them to power trip eternally. Create a better set of rules and make the staff police the site according to those policies, not according to personal interpretation.

2. They should be held accountable by the userbase, every ban should display who gave the user a ban and people should be allowed to discuss bans. That way people will be able to notice if a staff member is power tripping and can demand action against this person.

3.- The reason for a ban shouldn't be up to personal interpretation, the staff member should point out which rule the poster broke and it should be displayed in the ban notice.

4.- Do away with shitposts. At this point in time it is well known that certain shitposts are common occurance, create a general for those topics in /b/ and any post about these topics should be deleted and the poster should be directed there, some examples of these cyclical generals could be:
- The police question
- The nation/ethnicity question
- The religious question
- The race/IQ question
- Anything related to sexuality and gender

did some people actually take the joke imageboard cultural revolution proposal seriously?allendeAllende


Humor on /leftypol/ is no laughing matter.


Agree with everything but point 4, these questions are popular because they are important and we shouldn't punish users, especially new ones for talking about them.


That's true, there is a distinct no fun allowed atmosphere here

the postertariat has had enough of this! the janitourgeoisie infighting and couping each other, the site turning to absolute shit! we cant take it anymore and we will not take it anymore!

this thread will be one where the posters will initiate their demands directly to the current ruling junta and finally unionize to protect the place they know and love!

This is how we unionise the board: <br/><br/>Okay, so basically this is the gestalt official proposal, I was going to write a document with all the ins and outs of my reasoning, for that, you can go back through this chat and read what I have to say. Essentially, my belief is this: 1) there is somewhat of a consensus among mods and regular attendees to mod related discussions that some form of board democratisation is favourable 2) there are numerous different beliefs on what that should be or what it will look like 3) there is fairly wide consensus that the system of moderation decision making currently in place is not fit for purpose. 4) there is also a fairly wide consensus that, although democratisation is favourable to basically all, most recognise to a great or lesser degree real issues, among these, how can we prevent the subversion of such a system. 4) this leaves us in a position that, we must widen the scope of the decision making process on the board, I.e, democratise it, add more voices to the pool of those eligible to vote, while also making sure that pool does not become subverted with bad faith actors.<br/>My proposal therefore aims precisely to target these concerns, in order to complete the above objective of democratisation to some degree.<br/>While the ideal situation would be in my opinion direct democracy, there are very real threats to this, and very real problems with its implementation. Therefore, I suggest measures in order to smooth over implementation issues in a gradual, increasingly democratic fashion.<br/>Thus, in practical terms, I would like the mods to vote on these 3 separate but cohesive proposals 1) that a union of posters be allowed to created by the posters, this union will act as the mechanism by which posters can discuss issues with the board. It will be owned by the posters, so that it’s independence from the moderation team can be assured. Initially, this union would be a place of discussion, and the will of the board discerned by the individuals who made up the voting body of the union. These individuals would be, those collections of posters who are currently engaged in the board moderation and have been long term. Gradually, more and more people would be added to the voting pool long term, it would be the specific job of these individuals to oversee this expansion. 2) in order to solidify this, myself and soy noticer (the initial inspectorate) be inducted in the mod chat, which woulPost too long.
