Hello everyone. We found the results of the last survey useful, and we would like to now gather more feedback on a different variety of subjects. The results of the previous survey have been analysed here, if you are interested in a statistical analysis and some conclusions. >>>/meta/7357

Here are the questions for this month; please don't feel pressured to answer every one if you don't want to, if you have no strong opinions then you may simply leave the question out of your response. Feel free to write as much as you like but please try to answer our quantitative questions as well as this helps us to interpret the results objectively. So, without further ado, here we go.

Question 1: The moderation team wants an evaluation by the userbase on their performance since the migration to leftypol.org in a few categories. Give a number rating with lower being worse and higher being best and a brief comment on performance if desired.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how quickly do the mods respond to rule-breaking content?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how do you think the mods have lead to a /leftypol/ conducive for quality discussion?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how well do you think the moderation has responded to user complaints and requests for the site and boards?
A simple yes/no, do you think the structure of the site overall is the best it could be as structured by the moderation?

Question 2: Thinking more generally about the way that /leftypol/ is now, the moderation would like to know exactly how the users feel about the composition of threads. Feel free to briefly comment to expand your thoughts if you wish.

Do you think that there are (A) too few generals, (B) just enough generals, or (C) too many generals in /leftypol/?
A Yes/No, do you think the prevalence of general threads is impeding the creation of worthwhile smaller topic threads? IE is the US general impeding the creation of more nuanced threads about US politics?

This OP will (hopefully) remain updated with the latest information on voting. I won't be explaining too much about the process as it's currently only unofficially being used until a new constitution is written. The basics are that any staff member can create a [proposal]. Two other users approve this proposal for voting, this is not approval of the measure but of the clarity and purpose of the proposal. Once approved it can become a [vote]. Votes finish in 3 days or when a vote has majority approval/disapproval. There are also fast track votes, but we don't need to get into those. With that out of the way, here's the current view:

Ongoing Propositions:
* Proposal: Vote on whether we should use our public names in the mod meeting, if names should be up to moderator choice, or whether all mods should only be identified via numbers.

* Vote: Extension of 3 days on board merger vote. – Vote ends Jan.3rd – 4 yay
* Vote: Have a conversation on switching staff rooms from matrix to another, self-hosted, FOSS software. Possible alternatives include, but not limited to: rocket.chat, session messenger, matterhorn, zulip, scuttlebutt, jabber. – 5 yay 2 abstain – Ends January 8th
* Vote: Merge /games/ and /anime/ into /hobby/ (while keeping a backup of the current threads of each for future use) Vote ends 31st Dec 10pm UTC – 6 yay 3 nay

Recently Completed:
* Get rid when possible of the side bar and the HTML frames in the home page. – PASSED 6 yay
* Vote: delete hidden boards from leftypol – PASSED 5 yay
* Make Dark Red the Default Theme for now. – PASSED 4 yay 3 nay

Looping? Sure. Autoplaying? Not really.

Append this to the bottom of your User JS (see [Options] in the top right, click User JS and go to the bottom of that resizable text field)

/* Replace .gif's thumbnails with the .gif itself */
var thumbs = document.getElementsByClassName('post-image');
for (var i = 0; i < thumbs.length; i++) {
if (thumbs[i].parentNode.href.endsWith("gif")) {
thumbs[i].src = thumbs[i].parentNode.href;

>just in case there might be a raid

It's a regular occurrence, there's no 'if' or 'might'.

>a picture of a namefag showing his butthole is a banner
This is a new low, even for you


I had no idea that was a banner. That's hilarious and cool.


I was on the fence about it but OP has convinced me this banner is good.

second preference is ddate


Two-digit year looks better though.


Hello, I have passed along this suggestion to the tech team, I personally agree that we should switch away from m-d-y, though I don't know whether Year-month-day or day-month-year is better as a replacement. Either way, this will depend on when the tech team can get round to it, but thank you for your suggestion.

Thoughts on this format?
It's basically ISO 8601 with the short Day of Week stuck after the date for convenience.


Looks good, timezone would be UTC?

New threads on /leftypol/ are posted on intervals of 45 minutes, after a posts get submitted it stays on a limbo before an admin gives it a green light.

If it gets a red light it is sent to /b/, unless it is an absolute dogshit of a post, then it is erased

>main board is full of shitposts
This wouldn't have happened if you engaged in such measurements


Would those measures have stopped you?


I am not a shitposters though, just because reddit gets triggered doesn't make a poster a shitposter


This is potentially an interesting idea, however it would require more coding, and I doubt people would like the idea of their posts being held in a queue for moderator review. Also; there's an important legal issue here, if you 'pre-review' all posts then you are legally responsible for them. If you 'post-review' like most sites, you can simply claim 'oh sorry we didn't see that post, thanks for bringing it to our attention'.

With that in mind, we will not be implementing this, but thank you for your input.


So it's like moderation, except far more frustrating and complicated, because you can't bear to even see a thread out of place for a few minutes?

Tripfaggotry, and it was a problem very early on until the 2010s where they are so few people can name them
Eg. The butterfly attentionwhore

The avatar / name fag / etc problems really came to /b/ once more miscellaneous shitpost boards like qa, trash, s4s and vip appeared and all the secret boards were removed and the OC moved there making the board almost entirely a porn general board


What rules are they breaking?


>Hmm, yes, we need edgy Facebook rejects asking for people to edit their classmate's bikini off.

Chen is too pure for this world.


We have no plans to ban avatarfags at this time, especially on /b/. Thank you for your concern.
