Iran happening thread is absolutly fucking abhorant

"Attempted reactionary astroturfing and ban evasion"

Not sure what I did wrong? I just got done mowing my lawn, cleaning all of my bird feeders, filling the bird baths, then watching my local sportsball team win the game, logged on, saw the Iran thread was self destructing and needed the great man to upload something regarding you know the actual fucking happening in Iran, went to twitter, found a link of an Iranian police officer instructing his officers to shoot all protestors on sight and uploaded it.
I didn't even say anything either for the protestors or against Iran, nothing about anything for support either way?

Not sure exactly which type of content you want posted into the Iranian happening thread if it isn't actual shit regarding the Iranian happening?

I am starting to suspect this is going the direction of the Russian war threads and if you are not 100% against the protestors you are getting banned and content deleted, called a glowie, ect.?

Is this because Russia is receiving drone weapons shipments from Iran and the mods here are so rabidly pro Russia that they are also now pro Iran?

Harden your heart oh Janny.

West Virgin Rightoid

I was told that if I wanted to make a thread discussing the West Virgin(ia) rightoid, I had to do it here. This guy >>>/leftypol/972024 Basically, what the fuck is his deal? He comes here, supposedly for years, to get in the same old arguments. And he's obviously not here to troll because he writes paragraph after paragraph per thread, which is way to much effort for simple trolling. Common topics of his include:
>White fertility rates and the role Socialism DOESN'T have in maintaining them.
>Jewish Conspiracy/Question
>Supposedly being against capitalism and Socialism (muh third position bullshit)
>A fixation with trying to "disprove" Marxism
Common characteristics of his are:
>the odd as fuck spacing of his paragraphs
>cycling between the same pictures
Why the fuck does he do this, anyone know? What else does anyone know about him? This is not a doxx thread.

Could you please make some disciplinary measures for the mod "wvobbly" or demote them? They are constantly abusing their power. You are apparently even aware of this behaviour (picrel). They unfairly banned me recently, which got revoked by a different mod, only to be banned again in the same manner by wvobbly a day later.
This is unacceptable.

Leftypol is objectively the best website in the world

It is easily demonstrable by a negative definition, follow this, what are the other websites? 4chan, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok, whatever. Internet is mostly three American arms dealer in a trench coat anyway. Give me just one website that is better than leftypol. I’m waiting.

Bombard the headquarters.

Expose and defeat people in positions of power (i.e., mods) taking the capitalist road.

Keep in mind, mods and gatekeepers taking the capitalist road are always metaphorical compradors. They hold no real power themselves. Instead, they slavishly toe the line of the international monopoly capitalists. Their role is always to work within revolutionary movements to stifle the people's resistance to monopoly capitalism.

2 - /lifestyle/
basically taking stuff like cooking, fitness, being outdoors, ect and make it into its own distinct thing, which would free up /hobby/ to be mostly about tv, movies, comics, ect

3 - guns and weapons board

4 - transport & city planning

5 - paranormal

6 - roleplay (don't know what the person who proposed it meant by this)

7 - research & philosophy

8 - /NSFW/

What happened to leftypol?

Oldfag here, it's been a while since I've used leftypol but it genuinely seems like the site has improved. Whatever happened to bunkerchan anyway? Maybe my memory of the 8gag days are fuzzy but the current leftypol seems like less of a neckbeard echochamber. Don't get me wrong, it's still an anonymous imageboard and with that comes a certain amount of toxicity, but now idpol threads seem rarer or at least there is definitely a certain amount of pushback when people use being "anti-idpol" as cover for being reactionary. I'm also glad users seem to have outgrown Muke and co.

Btw, I still remember that one time leftypol had a massive hardon for Jeremy Corbyn, there were so many memes and they're all saved on my phone.
R: 2 / I: 0
been seeing a lot of picrel since july. Is this one guy or is this some new annoying strain of anti-"""totalitarian""" liberalism that has infected the board? The constant accusations of having not read any theory are particularly rich, and the vague gesturing towards a perfect revolution that need not be carried out violently nor defended with violence is laughable. The inability to distinguish between "critical" support and "uncritical" support is also common in posts of this vintage, as is a very glowing tendency to get frustrated at Anti-American sentiment. "Why do you hate America? Just get mad at capitalism! Ignore that America is the current unipolar capitalist hegemon doing all the coups and IMF loans and privatization! Sh-shut up!!"

/leftypol/ - antifeminist or not?

So, a few days ago I posted in >>>/siberia/287571.
Reacting upon the OP lumping together feminists with "loudmouth conservative boomers" and "alt right manchildren", I wrote a friendly remainder that you can't really be a socialist without being a feminist as well. I later noticed that my post was silently removed. The OP remains.
That this can be an inflammatory issue on this site does not elude me, but here's the rub: on any other socialist space that I know of, my statement would have been uncontroversial to the point of being meaningless. Feminism is literally the stance that genders should be equal, and that some amount of struggle towards that goal is warranted. Now, far be it from me to demand that leftypol conform to the standards of other socialist forums! However, I think that clear and articulated rules and policies are always serviceable – if nothing else than to elucidate what audience is welcome, or not – so with that in mind I kindly ask our mods to clarify the following: is leftypol an anti-feminist site, or is it not?
Thank you for your time.

Proposal Agenda Thread

Hello everyone. This is the thread to make proposals. Feel free to have your say whether user or mod. We have these proposals did not pass last week, but may be worthy of further discussion:



Proposal: Moderator votes remain the counted votes in admin decisions, but users should let vote using strawpolls (or perhaps polling systems built into the site?) per topic to display general user attitude to a proposal. If the majority User opinion directly opposes moderator majority vote then the proposals should be discussed and votes called on again after a break of 1-2 weeks to let people rethink positions on a topic.


Proposal: Make this the ‘official’ Leftypol channel >>>/leftypol/534666



Proposal: I think that we should also keep the current userbase engaged, making things like weekly game tournaments, actual organized debates, movie nights followed by discussion and so on. I've been thinking that a weekly leftypol podcast could be a good idea, just a couple of anons talking about what happened in the board and the world during the past week and inviting people to talk if they so desire, we could have debates there, and interviews and other things, and share it on spotify for others to see.



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.

On the censorship of communist truths on /leftypol/

I started a thread recently on the main board that proved that neither Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, nor Kropotkin or Bakunin ever called themselves "Left".

A mod than proceeded to do the following:
1. He rewrote the OP to contain literal nonsense.
2. He stickied his own rewritten OP.
3.After I pointed out all of this in said thread, he deleted the entire thread.

Questions:
A) why do we tolerate mods that hinder genuine discussion?
B) how was the above mentioned not an abuse of power? The fucker LITERALLY deleted after modifying & stickying that post pertaining to communist discourse, for whatever reason.
C) I literally stated facts pertaining to Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Kropotkin, and Bakunin. How am I the bad guy here?

INCREASE THE FUCKING BAN APPEAL CHARACTER LIMIT BY LIKE TENFOLD

I was just falsely banned for ridiculing a reactionary position (gays=pedos). I even fucking REPORTED the mother fucker and he was banned in the same thread. Then I get banned after the context is [deleted], and I have like what… 100-200 characters to appeal the ban?

Ridiculous.

For the love of God, give us at lest 1k character limit on appeals. Actual communists will write a small essay to explain why you mods shouldn't have banned him/her, while reactionary assholes will just write "lol, fuk u jew" in the appeal field.

TL;DR: Give comrades the space to explain the context and themselves. Otherwise we are losing valuable ppl.

Predefined Reasons:
Length - Reason

30m - Flaming, overly disruptive/hostile posting
1h - Spamming threads with unrelated discussion, spamming the same topic repeatedly
2h - Disruptive identity politics, reactionary thought, et cetera
12h - Samefagging, building false consensus, enflaming arguments by taking both sides
1d - Hysterical, gratituitously offensive, hateful posting, edgelordism etc.
10d - Bait topic, false flag topic, /pol/ spam topic (not machine spam)
30d - Machine spam, advertising spam, gorespam, etc (not off-topic discussion)
(double original ban length) - Ban evasion
Permaban - Illegal content

Second offenses: double time
Third offenses: triple time
Fourth offenses: quadruple time (and so on)

If a user incurs a ban length of over 90 days (through repeat offenses) they may be permabanned at moderator discretion.

On the standardisation of ban lengths

Hello everyone, we have recently had a new feature implemented where the ban interface has a standardised list attached to it which automatically populates ban reasons and lengths. Here is the current list (purely a placeholder).

Predefined Reasons:
Length Reason
1d Low-quality posting
1d Off-topic
10d /pol/
30d Spam
30d Ban evasion
forever Illegal content

Obviously there's a lot of stuff missing from that list and it needs to be decided upon what length these bans on the list even should be. Some people favour bans of a few hours whereas others favour bans of weeks. Obviously this inconsistency leads to possible arbitrary judgement, therefore we would like to consider how ban lengths should be standardised. This thread is for users and mods to express their ideas on this topic. Please let us know what you think should be pre-defined reasons and how long they should be banned for.

https://archive.ph/zwkuJ
Evidence of a junko denying the genocide of Palestinians by the imperialist Israeli government, repeating talking points made by hardline Zionists in the Israeli and US governments, as well as spouting schizo religious sectarianism that doesn't belong anywhere near leftist spaces.

Over the last few months we have seen countless anons banned for being "glowies" after making much more moderate and less sus posts abut Ukraine. Junko's posts break both the site idpol rules and past precedent set by mods. I can only assume that she is permitted to post stuff that regular anons would get banned on sight for simply because she is a tripfag and friends with the mods. I sincerely hope this is not the case and would like to be proven wrong.

The GLOWIE problem

Recent events (particularly the Ukraine threads) have revealed just how many bad faith actors relentlessly shilling and promoting Western talking points have joined up on this board. This is a phenomenon that will only become increasingly difficult to deal with if we continue current population growth trends and become more and more "mainstream" (as is already evident by multiple people coming over from Reddit).

To bring up just two of our most notable examples, namefags such as King Lear and Grillpilled Schizo have made posts bragging about
A) How America will handily defeat Russia in a real war and how it would be good, and
B) Critical Support for Azov Battalion.

And that's just the namefags. The anonymous posters are also full of people quoting out of context, trying their best to regurgitate demoralization /pol/ memes but without the racism ("OH NO NO NO RUSSIAN BROS HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN?", "Putin is FINISHED", etc.), and even just re-posting stuff straight from Ukrainian or Western MSM without even bothering to first re-package it in an ultra-"left" critique.

How do we stop the glowies? Simply range banning American IPs won't fix this; they'd just fire up their VPNs and be back the next day. There must be a systemic and concentrated effort to puzzle out how to fix this, preferably BEFORE we become a popular forum and not AFTER.

Why force anon?
Anonymity provides many benefits that other leftist communities don't provide.
>anti-celebrityism

Users taking on identities encourages negative behaviors.

There are some potential cases where an identity might be appropriate within a single thread, but users taking board-wide identities are antithetical to the strengths of this site. Their identity serves no purpose but to satisfy the ego.

There is a serious contingent on this website of nazbols and strasserites on this board. They say they want the working class to own the means of production. They say they want to overthrow the bourgeoisie. Good.

They also think all bourgeoisie are blue-haired black Jewish transwomen for some reason. They will accuse you of "idpol" unprovoked, while constantly spamming the maxim gorky quote about fascists being homosexual. They find a kindly worded request to stop discriminating comrades based on their identity more problematic than anything. They will call you a n*gger, a f*ggot, a r*tard, a k*ke, and a wrecker with almost zero provocation. They will judge you even more harshly if you respond to them in a level-headed way without using slurs

It's all so tiresome. It's not comradely behavior and I frankly think these people would embrace fascists at the drop of a hat if the fascists merely promised them redistribution. Doesn't even matter if they deliver. Simply the rhetoric of class is enough.

Not being a Russian cocksucker pro-war psyhcopath is not against the rules

So it's just fact now that Mods/Jannies are just straight up banning anyone who is against this war, or has taken a pro-war position or is even slightly critical of Russia for "Glowing". It should be noted that there is no rule for being against the war, hell even rightoids are allowed to post here, but being critical of fucking Russian imperialist chauvnism and murdering children is a step too far for our fucking dumbass mods and Jannies.
This sort of shit lead to the death of last Leftypol when the psycho BO banned anyone critical of Assad or siding with the SDF/YPG/PYD/PKK. Again, nowhere in the rules does it say you have to be a pro-oligarch capitalist cocksucking asshole, yet the mods seem to think this is a rule if that Oligarch is non-western.

Calling on the admins to bring the mods in line. This is fucking bullshit and this sort of thin-skinned two campism bullshit is what killed our last board. This is even more retarded as RUSSIA IS NOT SOCIALIST AND THE WAR WAS LAUNCHED ON A MISSION OF "DECOMMUNISATION".

Ban porn/sex dumps and split them into a separate board from /siberia/

Assuming I'm not the only non-zoomer remaining, if you remember /b/ from 2005-2009, it was not a porn-dumping board during that era, it actually had active admins and moderators like wtsnacks and moot who moderated the board and did "lulzy" things like banning OP's of threads who they thought weren't "funny." The problem with pornography-focused threads in unmoderated "general"/"off-topic" boards like /siberia/ is they spread quickly like fungal infections taking up all the focus away from other threads.

To save /siberia/ from this fate I suggest making a new board called /smut/, /lewd/ or /trash/ and moving all porn threads in /siberia/ to this new board. I'd also limit this new board to no more than 10 pages.

I also noticed you STILL haven't blocked images in https://leftypol.org/robots.txt , you will inevitably get hit with google-image-bot-scouring copyright troll DMCA complaints from people making these porn dumps, and your web host OVH is known for eventually banning customers from their services after they get tired of receiving a high amount of DMCA complaints from their customers. You can block for just one board if you want, it's not rocket science, e.g.:

Janitorial power abuse and lack of feedback

>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.

THE PROBLEM
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. So we can only guess that the moderation team doesn't it self know what is supposed to be done about the Ukraine moderation policy, they also are completely fine with bogus bans remaining half the time.

WHY DOES THIS MATTER TO ME, BALTOID NAZI?
I realize I might be quite unpopular for my anti-Russian position now, however this problem is wider than Ukraine war question. I am not even debating what should be the correct position on it, actually I even encourage the moderation team to openly endorse Putin so that some clarity about moderation could be found. No, the problem here is that janitors have openly shown how little they care about their own rules, how they don't care about their duty to give feedback and to be open to the users. Its only a matter of time until some other issue, one where perhaps I'll even be on the same side as the moderation team, arises, and they will decide to keep the same sort of arbitrary moderation style as now to police away wrongthink from "THEIR" board.

Thus I openly propose these ideas:
1) Mandate moderators to state in every ban which rule was broken
2) Update the rules accordingly whenever a new ban-worthy position that is not accounted for by the current rules is found
3) Temporarily revoke moderation privilages on repeated successful appeals to their issued

So has the moderation theme decided to completely abandon /meta/? Is another war in Olympus that is the hotpocket-smelling Matrix server brewing?

I know you are here and you are reading, you fucked up by replying to that shitty "Ban all non-ML's thread" yesterday, which is beyond ridiculous, because despite still (supposedly) being a tolerant to all leftist spectrum board, every anti-Russia poster gets jannied faster than a tankie on r/anarchism or a mentioner of Kronstadt on r/communism.

Where to post about religion

Newfag here. Where to post about religion? There not a single thread in this whole website that discusses religion. Is it because religion is considered idpol? Even theology? Should i post on edu? Or leftypol? If i cant post it on leftypol because its idpol, can i discuss (for example) the sociological aspects of christianity (for example, how did it influence african education during the first years of european colonizzation of africa) and not it's spiritual aspects (for example, i cant post a thread on leftypol where its discussed the "turning the other cheek" christian concept and its correlation with the cleansing of the Temple)?
If i can discuss it on edu, how far can i go? Do i need to correlate it somehow to politics (for example, lavey's individualism and how it influenced the concept of capitalistic individualism) or I can completely detach myself from politics (for example, can I discuss the influence of geometry on Aquinas understanding of God)?

What is Siberia?

I woke up this morning to find that my thread (the e-girl facial abuse one) had been deleted.
That was a good thread, we had done praxis and exposed some Wall Street banker's whore daughter. There was good banter about junko and her chicken farm. It wasn't a bad thread by /siberia/ standards.

However, my main concern isn't about my thread in particular. I want to know what the mods want /siberia/ to be. 3-6 months ago my type of thread getting deleted would've been unthinkable. Posting porn in /siberia/ was the norm. Being 'edgy' was the norm.
Now it seems that porn threads have a 50% chance of getting nuked and the mods are still unclear as to whether porn has to be spoilered.

My two questions for the mods are:
What do you want /siberia/ to be?
and
Are all of the mods in agreement over what /Siberia/ should be; have you all reached an understanding on how it should be moderated compared to the other boards?

On self-moderation

This is a discussion thread about the concepts of community self-moderation and self-curation, how they can apply to this site, and its interaction with the extent of staff-enforced 'quality control' (deleting reactionaries, idpol, derails, etc.)
There's pages of other threads for other topics so don't derail it with 'jannies should/nt ban [x]'.
—–

I believe a discussion community should ideally be capable of self-moderating. There are some obstacles to this, and I want to ask what they are, which can be solved, and how it can be achieved.

1) Why curate?
In a sentence, so that the catalogs aren't filled with or endorsing 'the same thread every week', reactionary shitposts, idpol bait topics and other generally-unwanted or quality-degrading topics.
Most of the community consider this a detraction from insightful threads getting attention, a welcome sign to unwelcome users, or simply a bad experience. Too much of this, and the users leave and the site essentially dies.

1) b. Why self-curate?
In a list:
>so that the site isn't reliant on random volunteer jannies to stop the above from happening
>so that jannies can be told with confidence to not curate topics that currently would just sit at the top of the site all day if they didn't
>so that a raid when jannies aren't online isn't paralyzing for hours

2) Tools of self-moderation
Online forums have different methods of self-moderation. Some sites like reddit are famous for a straight-forward, direct curation method of user-voting: a thread must be pushed up less than it is pushed down to continue being promoted. This is moderation based on approval.
Imageboards and forums use a 'bump' system: unless explicitly instructed otherwise, a post will rise all the way to the top whenever a reply is made. This is moderation based on attention.
Both styles have their pros and cons. With the bump system, for example, any approval raises threads to the top equally, which promotes attention to unpopular/slow yet positive threads. On the other hand, disapproval tends to promote threads. This is evident when a 'bait' thread stays at the top despite most posters considering it a bad thread, leading people to request moderator intervention as a drizzle of users disputing to the thread or two autists arguing keep it stuck to the top of the site.

On an imageboard, the bump system is the core method of user-controlled curation. There are also some malicious tactics such as Papiezposting (essentially flooding a thread with spam to prevent discussion) which is an easy way to get banned on any forum with a semblance of quality control. Others are social (such as memetic) rather than mechanical, which generally has little potency in an anonymous forum until there's a higher participation rate.
There are also personal moderation tools like filters and hiding, although this doesn't have a direct effect on what the site overall gives attention to.

3) Obstacles to self-moderation
>lack of awareness and participation
Due to the asymmetry of the bump system, if you don't bump but five other mad people do every minute, it's invalidated.
>>>new users

>self-control
Impulsive users see something they disagree with and think they have to respond. In you're not helping and your not having fun, why reply?
>believing sage helps
Saging is a false god when used in disagreement: it still prompts a response that almost certainly will be a bump. Saging is useful when you think your post doesn't warrant the thread being raised, when your post doesn't prompt a reply, or when the site is fast enough to handle counter-bumping.
>malicious self-bumping
This is largely invalidated by this site's rule against samefagging.

4) Methods of self-moderating a bump system
The most effective thing you can do to promote a better board is to bump existing threads with good posts the prompt positive discussion. Make good threads worth posting in. Create original content or effortposts if you can. Just saying 'bump' is a shitpost that doesn't really help beyond a few seconds. There's 36 pages of threads, surely there are ten good ones you can contribute to.
Secondly, raise awareness. Drive-by thread-shitters and impulsive bait-bitters caught in a thread don't realize they're keeping what they hate at the top of the site so that it will stay there longer. You don't need to get caught up in a conversation and contribute to the bumping, just notify and leave.
Thirdly, don't be part of the problem. Don't reply to obvious shitposts that anyone with a brain-stem can see the issues with. Simple enough.
If you must express disapproval, then don't even give them something to reply to and start a fight. Post your favorite laughing reaction image and ignore.

But we can't do that! We need jannies to delete bait because 10 people will take it!
I've seen sites self-moderate. I've seen places where a /pol/ flame won't get more than one reply and sink off the bottom. It's usually in slow places distant from 4chan IHM culture who have dealt with enough shit-and-run baiters to have to have learnt how to deal with them if they don't want to go to shit
There are reasons why we don't have that culture right now: people used to other sites who never considered this, a mutual pessimism that resistance is futile due to other bait-takers, a lack of awareness and any community culture, narrow-sightedness, all kinds of things.

But the great thing about a community is that culture can and will change if the people in it want it to.

Nuke /siberia/

It had its run but there is literally none to be gained by not just merging this back into /leftypol/ and the other boards. This board is splitting the site's userbase. Way back we would have shitposting threads on the main board sometimes. That was better.

Sorry, what are we losing exactly? Another twelve soyjak/poljak threads? The "BBC Kino" thread? Another four hundred incel threads? More idfag threads? Spam threads?

Operation Jupiter: Or why we should make a leftypol.com as a shield against raids

Remember our times at 8chan about 3 years ago?
Holy fuck it feels like yesterday bros
Well, on those days we had what was called 8ch.pl . Well, not really tbh, dunno who had that website. The thing is that, when you searched for /leftypol/ on google (as many /pol/tards would) they would end up in 8ch.pl/leftypol instead of 8ch.org/leftypol and thus, their raid would fall on a literal desert, instead of our board.
Thus, I shall propose to all of you Operation Jupiter, as a tradition of socialists, we name our operations with the name of planets, and this makes sense since Jupiter protects the earth from asteroids.
In the .com version of leftypol, we should still have some moderation so they don't post cp or some shit, and that's about it. Maybe mirror the threads made on actual leftypol but the posts made on the .com version aren't seen so they fall flat on their message and so on. Also, their threads would be put into the .com version, instead of into the .org version, of course.
Hell, make it obligatory for them to do a "user" to give us their email so it makes it even fucking funnier seeing them give their emails to us, making them sign some contract so they can't protest against us for giving us their email and possibly passwords cause they're jackasses. But this maybe is out of the focus of what Operation Jupiter really is about.

I'm seeking to get this done so Ismail's reference desk board/forum is more visible and connected to this site.
I got his consent for it: http://eregime.org/index.php?showtopic=17379&st=2130&#entry300560

I raised this in the /leftypol/ Congress matrix room and nobody took issue with it.
In case somebody doesn't know who Ismail is and why this change would be helpful: on 8chan he was the board owner for an associated board called /marx/ where he would answer questions random anons would ask him about Marxism. He also posted books that he uploads scans of to the Internet Archive.
Here's a sample of threads from 8chan's /marx/: https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://8ch.net/marx/res/*

Proletarian Internationalization initiative

ITT: brainstorm how to bring more comrades from nationalities that do not commonly post here!
Some Russian users came to /leftypol/ from /ussr/. That was a somewhat successful attempt at internationalization of /leftypol/, and served as a proof of concept.

If you're reading this and outside of the parts of the traditional Anglosphere (US, UK, Canada, NZ, Aus) then consider letting us know where leftists in your country or language congregate online, how likely it would be for us to be able to bring any aboard, and how that may be done.
Consider even taking such an initiative yourself independently.
My personal countries of interest for this purpose:
>China
>Iran
>Japan
>Latin America in general, but particularly those with a budding left-wing movement such as Mexico, Bolivia, Venezuela, etc.
>Egypt
>Turkey
>Russia

A note about connecting with users from countries with state censors:
Keep in mind that we do have a Tor website ( 76i2c3hn55fcj5nut3tqlboqqbbh23zvphv7lefk3vftpx6wketlanyd.onion ). This should assist in evading state censors (which may not currently be necessary for accessing /leftypol/ but you can predict that anticommunist states would be interested the moment they notice it exists), but be wary of course, especially of instructing someone how to access Tor on a potentially insecure platform.
In the case of Iran, I'm aware that an estimated 50 million people there use Telegram, which can be encrypted, albeit not by default ( see https://privacyinternational.org/telegram-guides for some best practices ). It is also reportedly a popular program in Russia.

The events.

TL;DR : The "modocracy" is restored, we have a new server, adults are back at the helm, we want to do our best to avoid drama in the future, we are tired of this shit and have better things to do both IRL and on /leftypol/ (like actually moderating), coupers and wreckers are no longer in the leftypol.org modteam. We are working in getting the cytube instance back up.

You'll find here the accounts of the events by the current members of the leftypol.org administration, the drama will be contained here as we are all tired of it and want to move on (while making the necessary changes for this not happen again).

To the /leftypol/ community,

You most likely don't know who I am as I have rarely posted with my moniker and modtag on the site, I never enjoyed the spotlights. I have been mod since Che (aka Old B.O.) stepped-down, admin in Bunkerchan and both admin and the domain owner (with regards to bourgeois law) of leftypol.org and presently on top of this the owner of the server hosting the leftypol.org domain and most importantly an user since 2015, having come to /leftypol/ from the "Marx Vs Stirner" threads in 4chan /lit/. If I am not mistaken I am the second oldest mod after our current sysadmin Antinous who has been in duty as mod for the past 5 years.

I want first to sincerely apologise to the whole community for this pathetic display of drama and immaturity synthesizing the worst of the terminally online left.
After all the event of the past years, especially since the infamous "Rojava" split, this community deserved a modicum of stability and it has been the opposite of
that.

Prior to the events that occurred a few days ago, last april of this year, I had stepped-down from my position of admin, at that time because of the behaviour of people in the modteam back then, some of which being now among the coupers, that had made for me moderating impossible. This behaviour includes secretly plotting to purge mods they didn't like, creating completely false and unsubstantiated accusations, an endless thirst for internal drama and the prioritisation of thereof over basic janitorial duties and finally their recurring protection of the worst schizoposters, thread deraillers and spammers of the site and their opposition against any harsh measure taken against them under the sake of some idealistic and liberal conception of "freedom of speech" (probably inherited from m00t's 4chan with the success to which we have all been witness). I, thus, in that context preferred to step down rather than leverage my position as Admin to get the wreckers out, this lack of ruthlessness to preserve /leftypol/ might have been an monumental mistake but what is done is done.
Fast forward to 4 months later and one morning before going to work at 6am (local time) I discovered while browsing as a regular anon (being no longer in the administration nor being in contact with any of the mods since I resigned) that now the site was controlled by a junta of the very people because of which I had left, and the internal de facto abolished. I immediately checked the registrar account (which was still under my real name and real email) and changed the password, a last ditch effort to prevent the situation from descending into total chaos. I was therefore in exclusive control of the domain, once again. I, then contacted the people whom I fully trusted from the modteam, like antinous. They informed me of the abruptness and chaos of the whole situation and the complicity of the then sysadmin zer0-, who entrusted arbitrarily and unilaterally full power the worst wreckers. After a short exchange by email with zer0- after he asked me if I was in control of the domain (I will post my email response to him below) and seeing their lack of any goodwill to find any compromise, that every techie besides zer0- had left and the only mod left were mentally unstable, drama seeking, terminally online wreckers, we had decided me along the non-coupers mods (the actual majority of the modteam) to get a new server to which we would point the leftypol.org domain.

I, once again sincerely apologise for this pathetic drama and sad series of event and the great disruption caused to a community that helped me forge my political consciousness and made me discover many authors and perspectives. We, the old-guard of mods, bear responsibility, as the wreckers were all mods recruited relatively recently (none of them are were mods in the 8chan era) and brought in by us, we will have to change our recruiting and our vetting process to select against any immature, unstable, power seeking profile.

Finally, I am a card carrying member of my local Marxist-Leninist Party in which I’m fully invested and have new job prospects that will occupy most of my time, the last thing I want or need is more drama. We will work towards that as a priority along actually moderating this site that descended into a worrying and sorry state quality wise.
Hopefully, in the near future I will be able to entrust the domain and the server to people of trust within a structured, stable and democratic administration and go back being a regular anon. Until then I will fully assume the responsibility of owner of the domain and server (which are fully paid for, for the foreseeable future).


Comradely,


Krates.

Nazbolism as a strategy to increase Leftypol's userbase

By reading the headline already you have knew that the main topic of this thread revolves around several reasons on the question of "why is Nazbolism good (and sometimes a solution) for Leftypol"

1) It's a hearts-and-minds strategy. This is the main reason. By being Nazbol, we can win the support of other channers (including 16chan, Endchan, etc., even /pol/). Just like how South Korea won its support by exporting K-pop and dramas (including Squid Game) globally and how Japan achieves the same thing by internationalizing anime, so can this site achieve popularity by going full Nazbol and winning their (other channers') support. This is part of basic diplomacy, known to analysts as soft power. Soft power is a strategy all countries use to achieve their support through non-forcible means, such as exporting its values into a target demographic/country. This is true for the two aforementioned countries, which have garnered massive support through the spread of their cultural aspects in a global scale. It is different from hard power, in which a country forces its target country to accept and support their values (often through economic, political, and military means); the same analogy for us is when we coerce a site into supporting (or becoming like) us by raiding them in a set basis (like what /pol/ does). So, with that in mind, being Nazbol means a lot for us, for we can attract more people into leftism by aligning our values to theirs while keeping core socialist values (of Marx and Lenin) within us. This can win more hearts and minds from those other channers, which are mostly (in normie vocabulary) "right-wing".
2) National Bolshevism is a form of red-brownism, which combines fascist thought and communist ideals. So, we can LARP as fashoids to win their support only, while remaining true as communists. Therefore we can win their support without overtly going full fascist like them.
3) Lastly, their values are similar to us (such as anti-elitism and populism). So, by being Nazbol, we can therefore synthesize their rhetoric with communist thought. One example would be the anti-vaccine rhetoric. By portraying that the vaccines are made by the Jewish 1% and should firmly be rejected by the common people, we can bring them closer into communism by pushing left populist rhetoric onto them.

Fediverse/fedichan/FChannel diplomatic mission

So I've noticed a lot of posts advertising leftypol at https://0x00000000.xyz which is part of a network of chans running a software called FChannel that federate with each other, I.e. share posts. They do this by boards following each other.
Have you considered joining us, i.e. implementing ActivityPub on your site and making it federate with the rest of the network?
It would give you a new opportunity to explain communism to people, as well as boost the numbers of both you and the rest of Fchannel.

Proposal Agenda 27/09/21 - 01/10/21

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.

R: 7 / I: 1 (sage)

There Need Only Be Two Main Boards

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.
R: 10 / I: 0 (sage)

This site and teenagers

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.

Designing Transparency by Default

This is a long post, but it's important we do this properly in order to prevent the same bullshit happening again. All constructive feedback is helpful. Feedback from people who don't use Matrix or /meta/ often is especially useful.

It's clear the previous site was screwed up in many ways. While there are obvious surface issues such as moderation tensions, there were underlying design flaws in the moderation system that both compounded these issues and made the user experience worse than it should have been. Some results of this flawed system is how many policy changes were a surprise to most users despite being discussed for days or over week, even users who regularly visited the /meta/ board had no visibility over these discussions.

It is the view of the entire moderation team that this is unacceptable.

From what I know, the previous leftypol.org's (supposed) transparency effort was as follows:
>general moderation discussion takes place in the Matrix Congress chat
(in reality, it became normalized for many mods to default to the private Matrix Staff Room, even for non-sensitive matters)
>mod voting on changes takes place on a locked, unlisted, public board, /assembly/
(this is the same board that was made public and open by leftychan, previous weeks' votes were moved to the archive board every Monday. it was extremely badly advertised)
>votes would be declared in the /meta/ voting thread, along with their outcomes
(as evident, this almost never happened in practice, with no-one doing this after the first month except for a short-lived revival attempt by Discomrade)

While technically the design was public, none of it was easily noticable to most users and became effectively (by both design and then culture) private-by-default. When a crisis happens and priorites take over, all the extra tasks can easily get forgotten. That's why open-by-default is a design quality we should aim for in the new moderation framework. We should have to go out of our way to talk about site changes in private (for special cases concerning things like IP bans or server technical details, since it is inappropriate to show that sensitive information publicly).


Here are some possible solution we've proposed so far, please tell us what you like, what you don't like, what you would like, or any other suggestions you have.
>Announcing all site/policy decisions in the red Global Announcements section when discussion begins, with a link to a /meta/ thread for that issue.
>Announcing discussion of major changes to a board with a new sticky thread on that board.
>Renaming the staff room to make it clear it should be used for confidential matters.
>Removing shitposting and off-topic tangents from the Congress Matrix room that should be in the regular /leftypol/ Chat room, so it can appropriately be more easily used to openly discuss minor, temporary, time-critical site matters like potential deletions, sages, bans and appeals

How to get more people into the site?

Reposting here because no one ever reads meta and because sage ruined the thread, sorry mods

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!

Divorce

With respect to the will of the users of GETchan, I propose removing both links to /GET/ and /ref/ in the boardlist and the landing page, as well as severing most other remaining ties.
GETchan and leftypol have diverged significantly enough to have developed irreconcilable differences. But more importantly, neither site benefits from linking to one another. If anything, attempting to maintain a relationship with GETchan is ultimately a fruitless waste of time for the administrators of both sites. Furthermore, I do not expect any noticeable drop in board traffic or post quality by removing such links, and it goes without saying that if GETchan users want to use leftypol they probably know where to find us.
I understand the historical significance of GETchan to leftypol, and I'm not suggesting that we go full Orwell and memoryhole it. I'm only suggesting that we opt to remember and respect GETchan "from a distance" so to speak.

/GEG/ - growth engineering general

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.

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.

Concerning the split

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 the split because I suspect that at least half of the people on the new domain are honest anons who want to grill and are misled, and that the split makes us vulnerable to more /pol/shit. Has there been more or less of it lately? And then finally, what is to be done about the other domain? I think glowies are hyping them up and incensing them against this place, basically keeping them on life support instead of the normal course of events where they burn themselves out and get bored of being a splinter. Finally thank you Krates for saving the site and all the people who are doing the irl work for it.

What if Space and Currency were the real good ones all along

Once upon a time, the now four websites were united under the banner of the glorious Bunker, after the tribulations of the Year of Shooting Induced Permabans. The Bunkerchan, LeftypolOrg, GET, and LeftypolNet, although moderated by different factions of moderators, all had coexisted on one site under the superficially aloof and often absent dictator Space, presiding over the boards but not directly interfering in the everyday affairs of management and moderation. Thus, though the factions of moderators could squabble to no end, the personage of Space under which the regime on the Bunker existed could symbolize unity, stability, and continuity. However, the catastrophes began when Space, in a hotheaded moment of half warranted suspicion, elected to descend into the sphere of the politics of ordinary moderators, and blackened the legitimacy of the administration of the Bunker, so that the illusion of the benevolent but removed ruler became no more and factions of moderators initiated the war of all against all. After that, the history repeated, because the site administrators didn't conduct themselves in the ways of the benevolent coronate and perform the correct rites, instead meddling in the lowly affairs of state by managing the jannies' infighting. Hence the drama that has wracked not only this site recently but also of the past the GETLF incident triggered by the crisis of King's surprise reentrance and the even earlier infinityLeftypol BO spergout. In order to arrest the slide into lawless anarchy of Leftypol and avoid any potentially imminent future problems, there should be a suitable shitposter of noted lineage crowned potentate of the USSC, in whom the ultimate authority of site administration be vested, and by this action restore, to former glory, the great harmony of the state.

The Just Republic: In defense of the modocracy

The Just Republic: In defense of the modocracy

TLDR: Plato’s republic is the ideal form of governance for an imageboard

>“For surely, Thrasymachus, it's injustice that produces factions, hatreds, and quarrels among themselves, and justice that produces unanimity and friendship. Isn't it so?… if it's the work of injustice, wherever it is, to implant hatred, then, when injustice comes into being, both among free men and slaves, will it not also cause them to hate one another and to form factions, and to be be unable to accomplish anything in common with one another?… Then does it come to light as possessing a power such that, wherever it comes into being, be it in a city, a clan, an army, or whatever else, it first of all makes that thing unable to accomplish anything together with itself due to faction and difference, and then it a makes that thing an enemy both to itself and to everything opposite and to the just? Isn't it so?… And then when it is in one man, I suppose it will do the same thing which it naturally accomplishes. First it will make him unable to act, because he is at faction and is not of one mind with himself, and, second, an enemy both to himself and to just men” - Plato, The Republic


As said previously in my note on recent events, the frequency of splits, the schizo-paranoia, it’s clear that there is something incredibly broken about how leftypol recruits staff and moderators, and this has almost lead to the death of leftypol several times. Many people here, including certain former moderators, have expressed the desire to have more “user input”, for user congresses. This is all utterly misguided. It’s fine to have a channel for user feedback, and to take suggestions, but the idea of LARPing a direct democracy, without accountability, in an anonymous or pseudo-anonymous medium just can’t work. The capitalist structure of ownership, of private property with regards to web domains and servers, really prevents this from being anything more than a democracy in name only. As we have seen, the only people with real power are those that control these resources, and everything else is really just play-acting. At worst, it just introduces an ability for loud retards to override the silent majority or right wing crossposters to manufacture consensus.

Instead of LARPing as an Athenian direct democracy, the moderators should model their form of governance after Athenian democracy’s greatest critic: Plato. If we must do a historical LARP, the form of governance that imageboards should take is that of a Platonic republic.

Plato’s “Republic”, often derided as a mere excuse for despotism, is really anything but. According to Plato, the object of governing is the well being of the governed in the same way that the object of medicine is the healing of the human body. The answer to the question of the definition of justice is answered indirectly, through the example of what a just society would be. A human being does not exist apart from a society. A just society is just a macro-version of a just man, and vice versa: a just man is a micro-version of a just society/state. There is a sort of social contract where people agree to act justly, in order to accomplish greater things than if they where constantly fighting, bickering, and trying to rip each other off.

Plato is often attacked for his advocacy of censorship. I suppose my answer to that is that the moderator IS a censor. That’s literally all they do. Every moderator, ever. It’s only a question of degree. The alternative is unlimited free speech, which no site, even 8chan itself, could sustain.

In Platos republic there are three groups: The artisans, or producers, the auxiliaries, a warrior/administrative class, and the guardians or governers who would rule society for it’s benefit.

>Until age 18, would-be guardians should be engaged in basic intellectual study and physical training, followed by two years of military training. However, a correction is then introduced where the study of gymnastics (martial arts) and warfare – 3 plus 2 years, respectively – are supplanted by philosophy for 5 years instead. Next, they receive ten years of mathematics until age 30, and then five years of dialectic(philosophy) training. Guardians then spend the next 15 years as leaders, trying to "lead people from the cave". Upon reaching 50, they are fully aware of the form of good, and totally mature and ready to lead.


Obviously, in this analogy, the guardians are the admins/mods/tech people, the auxiliaries are the lower ranked janitors, and the artisans are the anons.

>And they are always crowded around the shipowner himself, begging and doing every thing so that he'll turn the rudder over to them. And sometimes, if they fail at persuasion and other men succeed at it, they either kill the others or throw them out of the ship. Enchaining the noble shipowner with mandrake, drink, or something else, they rule the ship, using what's in it; and drinking and feasting, they sail as such men would be thought likely to sail. Besides this, they praise and call 'skilled sailor,' 'pilot,' and 'knower of the ship's business' the man who is clever at figuring out how they will get the rule, either by persuading or by forcing the shipowner, while the man who is not of this sort they blame as useless. - Plato, describing the coupists thousands of years in advance


Similar to the guardians of Platos republic, there needs to be a rigorous system for both vetting and training mods and technical staff.

Vetting: Mods need to build a mod application app. This would include a series of multiple choice questions designed to weed out candidates with BPD, narcissism, schizophrenia, and other harmful personality traits or psychological disorders. The second stage would include the candidate including some background info, such as a post they made for the janitors to check the post history, their ideology, general background, etc. If they pass these stages then they can start the training/probation period.

For technical janitors there is a final, optional to non technical jannies, stage. They must use a platform, perhaps like codeacademy/hackerrank/etc. To take and complete a number of basic courses on php, sql, database, javascript, html/css, cybersecurity etc. and screencap the completion pages, attach/upload the images or otherwise show them to the jannies, in order to ensure they have basic competency in these technologies. There are free and paid options for this but the free options are already adequate. The technical training can also be done concurrently with the janitorial probation period if needed.

Training: a long period of probation/apprenticeship (not 15 years, but more like 4-6 months) where the new candidate is not allowed to vote on matters but is appointed a janitor with minimal power of a certain board and rotated throughout the boards periodically, probably starting on /b/, and being moved around from board to board, until they finally have janitor power on /leftypol/. After this they will be approved or disapproved by the current mods, either a simple majority, supermajority, or unanimous consent.

Only then should the person be admitted to the mod team.

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 last week, that perhaps we should discuss again this week:

>>10296 Proposal: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
>>10297 Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations"

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.

Motion to install Shay as Moderator in Chief

This coup was supposed to have improved the state of affairs, but it might just have accelerated the decline of the website. The jannies on all sides seem to be quite disconnected from the masses which have composed the life essence of these boards. It is long past time, therefore, that a tribunal representing the popular thrust be established to directly parley with the cliques of moderators, because there are many problems which urgently require resolving and the petty factionalist struggles of the administration have caused those issues to be forgotten. And what better individual to be the Tribune of the Posters than Shay, who not only has been a fixture around here through the multiple tribulations of migration, retreat, and reconstruction of this place but also represents decently the unity of the ideals which /leftypol/ is supposed to uphold. Steeped in the culture of both effortposts and shitposts, she is rooted in the material reality of the average posters. Shay is proletarian in class background, someone opposed to imperialism and Angloid Boxism, and also one who is not so spooked about the usual progressive canards. The current crop of moderation, be they the junta, the soyjak avatarfag narcissist axis, or the furries, can argue in /meta/ to the end of time, but most of the resident anons dedicated to the improvement of /leftypol/ know a true government of action is of utmost importance at this moment of upheaval.

On the jewish nigger question


tl;dr: Why the fuck can I say here jewish nigger but not uyghurish?

Marx begins his letter with explaining how miserable his financial situation is due the civil war
>From the enclosed scrawls you will partly see how bothered I am. So far, the landlord has allowed himself to be placated; he has yet to receive £25. The piano chap, who is being paid in instalments for the piano, should already have had £6 at the end of June, and is a most ill-mannered brute. I have rate demands in the house amounting to £6. The wretched school fees — some £10 — I have fortunately been able to pay, for I do my utmost to spare the children direct humiliation. I have paid the butcher $6 on account (the sum total of my quarterly takings from the Presse!), but I’m again being dunned by that fellow, not to mention the baker, the teagrocer, the greengrocer, and such other sons of Belial as there may be.
<Aus den einliegenden Wischen siehst Du teilweise, wie ich bin bothered. Der landlord hat sich bisher beschwichtigen lassen, hat 25 £ zu bekommen. Der Klaviermann, der Ratenzahlungen für das Klavier bekommt, sollte schon am letzten Juni 6 £ erhalten, und ist ein sehr grober Lümmel. Steuerzettel für 6 £ liegen mir im Haus. Den Schuldreck von ungefähr 10 £ habe ich glücklicherweise bezahlt, da ich alles tue, um den Kindern direkte Demütigungen zu ersparen. Dem Metzger habe ich 6 £ abgezahlt (und dies war meine Gesamteinnahme eines Vierteljahrs von der „Presse"!), aber der Kerl tritt mich wieder, nicht zu sprechen von Bäcker, teagrocer, greengrocer und wie all das Teufelszeug heißt.

then he rants about Lassalle
>The Jewish nigger Lassalle who, I’m glad to say, is leaving at the end of this week, has happily lost another 5,000 talers in an ill-judged speculation. The chap would sooner throw money down the drain than lend it to a ‘friend’, even though his interest and capital were guaranteed. In this he bases himself on the view that he ought to live the life of a Jewish baron, or Jew created a baron (no doubt by the countess). Just imagine! This fellow, knowing about the American affair, etc., and hence about the state of crisis I’m in, had the insolence to ask me whether I would be willing to hand over one of my daughters to la Hatzfeldt as a ‘companion’, and whether he himself should secure Gerstenberg’s (!) patronage for me! The fellow has wasted my time and, what is more, the dolt opined that, since I was not engaged upon any ‘business’ just now, but merely upon a ‘theoretical work’, I might just as well kill time with him! In order to keep up certain dehors vis-à-vis the fellow, my wife had to put in pawn everything that wasn’t actually nailed or bolted down!
<Der jüdische uyghur Lassalle, der glücklicherweise Ende dieser Woche abreist, hat glücklich wieder 5000 Taler in einer falschen Spekulation verloren. Der Kerl würde eher das Geld in den Dreck werfen, als es einem „Freunde" pumpen, selbst wenn ihm Zinsen und Kapital garantiert würden. Dabei geht er von der Ansicht aus, daß er als jüdischer Baron oder baronisierter (wahrscheinlich durch die Gräfin) Jude leben muß. Denk dir, daß der Kerl, der die Geschichte mit Amerika usw. weiß, also die Krise kennt, in der ich mich befinde, die Frechheit hatte, mich zu fragen, ob ich eine meiner Töchter als „Gesellschafterin" der Hatzfeldt übergeben wolle und ob er mir selbst die Protektion Gerstenbergs (!) verschaffen solle! Der Kerl hat mir Zeit gekostet und, meinte das Vieh, da ich ja jetzt doch „kein Geschäft" habe, sondern nur eine „theoretische Arbeit" mache, könne ich ebensogut meine Zeit mit ihm totschlagen! Um gewisse dehors dem Burschen gegenüber aufrechtzuhalten, hatte meine Frau alles nicht Niet- und Nagelfeste ins Pfandhaus zu bringen!
this should already be known so far

but then he also states
>The fellow’s importunity is also uyghur-like.
<Die Zudringlichkeit des Burschen ist auch uyghurhaft
note how uyghurhaft is one word in German a more a more accurate translation than the MECW one woud be

Hello everyone. We are trying something new, by moving proposals/votes off the mostly-private /assembly/ board (no longer exists), to /meta/ where they are easily seen by the community.

Firstly, 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?

There are no votes this week as this is the first week of the new system. Please reply to this post to post proposals for consideration next week. Once again, only mods can make official proposals, but 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.
R: 33 / I: 2
PLEASE READ AND COMMENT
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.

Observation:
- 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.

Idea:
- 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.

Proposal:
- Run a two week experiment: a new board to hold Cluster 1 threads.
- See if we like it or not, and if it has a positive influence on the board (see: Intended goals)

Tentative names for Cluster 1 are
- /geo/
- /politics/
- /world/.
Cluster 2 would probably remain named /leftypol/.

Potential issues:
- People might not use the overboard/overboard catalog, and switching between boards might not fall into their usage style.
- People might use one board over the other, which might cause activity to fall in general.
- People might be strongly opposed to the experiment once it starts running.
- It might make each individual board slower.
- 2 weeks might be too little time for the effects to be noticeable and/or for people to acclimate to the change.

Intended goals:
- People will find more threads that interest them and post more actively on them.
- Theory threads will have a renaissance. inshallah
- Slower happening threads will have more activity, especially generals which are less active now (Hispa, Africa, MENA/ME, etc.).

Attachments
Pictures show how the board catalogs would look if we did it right now. It's not a perfect sort, but I wanted to get the idea across.

Please share your feedback and thoughts on this proposed experiment.

suggestions for changes to combat undesirable developments

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

It is incredible that you autists have yet again managed to fuck shit up

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
Etc.

The OP of these generals should have a document that states the position of the site on these topics, as well as positions that are bannable offenses. For example, arguing that a certain race has a lower IQ is reactionary and this a bannable offense, and this would be stated in the document.

The community can redact different set of rules and then the community can decide which of then are ought to be inplemented

Rightoid slide threads

I notice we've been having a bunch of rightoid slide/bait threads lately. To all the newfag rightoids, welcome. Now shut the fuck up. Don't start a thread with "debate me" and then act surprised when people lazily mock you, because we've debated every single topic on the sun with you already. All your ideas are wrong. All your objections have been answered a thousand fold. You are fucking pondscum who shouldn't be allowed to speak until you read some theory instead of making the most lazy baits possible with muh jews/muh capitalist GDP. In technology there is a saying "read the fucking manual" and the same applies to politics. Read the fucking theory >>285223 and then come back with some more intelligent baits. And if you can't do that then lurk instead of shitting up the catalog with your lazy ass basic bitch prageru/TPUSA sub midwit tier objections to socialism.

Thoughts and questions on the state of the Board.

Perhaps this belongs in /meta/, but I decided to post this on the main board since very few people even browse there and this concerns everyone.

I've been on /leftypol/ since 2017, and lately I've been feeling pretty depressed about the state of the board. Maybe I was looking at things through rose coloured glasses, but before the latest split I felt like we were just starting to recover from the 8chan days, and building a new chan identity and userbase. The board activity and notoriety grew steadily for the whole of 2020, and sustained itself for the most part even after the Burger election.

Sure, there were constant /pol/ raids and that weird attack by the Thai royalists, but that drama also bred interest. le /pol/face mem, or at least the iteration that triggered halfchan to conduct those giga raids, came from us. I remember talking to several newfags from leftist discords and subs that came to us in those days.

The board was also much, much faster. I still don't have a very clear idea of what caused the latest split, since I was away for few months, but I do know that board activity right now is back to the darkest early days of bunkerchan. And still there are people calling for bunkerfags banned from the site.

>but muh board quality

Picrel is a thread from late-era bunkerchan. While the board quality does suffer proportionally as newfags flood the site, we also get good new posters, and oldfags are encouraged to effortpost when there actually is an audience for quality posting. There are very few regular effortposters left, practically no quality shitposters (who are very important for the site, again picrel) and no threads where different quality posters coalesce to create long chains of effort posts I can enjoy while taking a shit at work.

>It's just a chan, get a life

I mostly do other things than lurk /leftypol/. I've got a job, a GF, real passions and budding interest in organizing. But /leftypol/ at it's best has been the absolute best leftist online forum, at times even news source. Everything else out there is pure shit. Even the so called "magazines" are shit. /leftypol/ has occupied an important space in the online Left IMO. I come across memes that originate here in far off and surprising places. This board has always been place that punches above its weight in terms of influence, and has been pretty close to being relevant as a place of young Leftist discource in it's own right. Thus I think the health and growth of the board are valid concerns. Which brings me to some questions I want to put both to the jannies, while I also invite the general userbase to weigh in.

Is there any plan on growing the board, ie. managing the board in such a way that invites growth in userbase and activity?

In the case the board does manage to grow and regain a larger userbase, are there any contingency plans to avoid further splitting? Or are we doomed forever to split over autistic reasons eacht time we stand at the cusp of relevancy?

The split never ended, also my theory on Infrared drama

It seems like the original dollar's server for bunkerchan.net is still up. You can access it via this IP, if there's a new domain name then I can't find it.
https://51.222.141.203/
Their board seems dead ever since the bunkerchan.net domain redirected to the leftypol.org server. Everyone who posted there didn't seem to care much about the split, they just kept posting there out of habit, and just needed a helping hand in order to migrate.
With that in mind, there were still some seething losers active there, who were foaming at the mouth at us winning the split and posting about how much they hate and despise leftypol.org. In the end they all seem to have moved to leftycel according to replies to any post which asks why the board is dead.
https://9chan.tw/leftcel/
I'm honestly not surprised. Now, there are actual CP-apologia threads on that site from some anarchist incels. The thread has been up for months and their BO actively endorses it. This leads me to believe that it was one of them who posted CP to the Infrared subreddit and then began to false flag on leftypol.org as a form of infantile revenge. Thoughts?

New board idea.

Can we have a serious board? Maybe call it praxis or something. The focus would be only on serious strategies for advancing leftist/socialist/communist agenda. No shitposting. No insulting other posters. Just acting like adults and trying to be productive about this. Basically anti-imageboard "culture."

FUCK STICKY THEADS

Holy shit just remove those sticky threads from /leftypol/. Who the fuck wants to frequent a board that greets you with RULES AND BUREAUCRACY, followed by THE CORRECT WAY TO SELF-INDOCTRINATE.

If someone violates the rules, you ban them and link them to the rules page.
If someone wants to seek knowledge about marxism, they'll make a thread, five people will answer with differing opinions and then derail the rest of the thread about how their opinion is the right one and everyone else is a retard. That's the FUN part and the whole point. Imageboards are supposed to be fun places for retards. Not some sunday assembly forums for lobotomized bureaucrats.

NEVER have a permanent sticky. Avoid sticky threads. If you really need to inform people about something, have your sticky for a day or a week and remove it. But in normal situations let the people decide what's on the front page.

Then again I bet you'll just ban me for not giving feedback the right way because I'm a normal human being and didn't bother to read any of those FIVE STICKY THREADS you have on /meta/.

/leftypol/ and imageboard function

Why is /leftypol/ so censored?

The entire purpose of the “imageboard” website format is to encourage a wide variety of ideas and information by using front-end anonymity and less moderation to spur people to post new ideas. The ability to remain anonymous (on the front end allows people to post different ideas and stops critics from browsing through one’s "post history”. The low-moderation encourages new ideas that would be “revolutionary” or “unsettling”.

This forum (/leftypol/) is heavily moderated which prevents free discussion of ideas. The reason why /pol/ is "avant garde” and “revolutionary” is because it doesn’t censor controversial ideas.

It seems to me that /leftypol/ merely adopts the “aesthetic” of an imageboard instead of its actual purpose.egoismEgoism

Islamic raiders invaded in the middle of a war between Pakistani forces and used the opportunity to conquer and disseminate Islam. Anywhere else in the world this invader would be viewed as some kind of arch-enemy and enemy of the local people, but because of Islam this invader is considered a hero and statues are erected to him across Pakistan. Muslims invaded and displaced all of Pakistani local culture and replaced it with their Arab culture and Pakistani Muslims all worship Arabs now. She wanted to go back to Pakistani culture and repel the Muslim invasion/erasure of her culture.

Counters were a mistake

PPH counters, ip counters, ip counters with in threads: These were and are still a mistake of modern imageboards.
The ability to know how many participants (other than being against the spirit of anonymity) turns posters into rabid skitzos about how fast the board is, or, how many people are visiting the board, or, how many eyes are on us, etc etc. It used to not be like this and, mind you, this is not a jab at leftypol. Modern Imageboard software is guilty of this over all, but, the issue is it incentivizes more "posting for the sake of posting" rather than for A: Posting quality and B: posting because you truly want to/have something to say even if it is just a shit post or a green text story.

It makes anons neurotic about the state of the website, which, in the long run, actually hurts more than it helps.

Counters were a mistake.
