 No.10933

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 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: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations
Proposal: Harsher measures against both bait making and bait taking
Proposal: Include a list of the word filters in the FAQ or rules page, just somewhere accessible so people know the current word filters in place

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.

>Proposal: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
I feel like we're already going ahead with this with the anti-incel vote, its probably better to do it piecemeal rather than a bunch of them done as line-order items - when we do it piecemeal it is usually a reaction to actual events within the community, doing it as a line-item thing means we are likely going to be judging things and enacting certain policies without a real bearing on how they act in the community. Its better to react against their manifestation than try to preempt them and make inadequate rules, imho.
>Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations
I agree with the general principle but not the proposal itself, I think we should generally just opt for easier bans on "our own people" (as much as we can verify it) and save bigger bans (a week or longer) for known retards or /pol/acks, at least for the time being. The anons have been acting in good behavior so we should for the time be more lax in return.
>Proposal: Harsher measures against both bait making and bait taking
I vote for this actually, small micro-bans for b8-taking (like an hour or so) would be a good way to ween /leftypol/ off its b8 addiction.
>Proposal: Include a list of the word filters in the FAQ or rules page, just somewhere accessible so people know the current word filters in place
Vote for.

yes on the condition that the ban lengths are built into the software as a drop down menu

for but needs more clarification

I can live with this if the vanguard leadership votes in favour of it I guess

Proposal: Equip each board with a sticky detailing its purpose and rules. This should ideally include any and all of the various and more or less obscure bylaws, such as covid denialism being allowed in the covid-19 general but nowhere else.

 No.10989


 No.11183

Proposal: change the FAGGOT wordfilter to chinlet

I can handle those manually, just give me some time.

 No.11185

>I can handle those manually, just give me some time
Sure, I just wanted to let the mods know of this small issue. I'll send a couple reports per day to point out which threads have this issue, danks!

 No.11226

Proposal: Bring back 200 character minimum for OPs

 No.11243

>>11226
Lower it to a 50 character limit. Sometimes a thread isn't that complex.

 No.11265

proposal: filter breadtube to fedtube, + all permutations (breadtuber to fedtuber, Breadtube, etc.)

 No.11273

>>11265
Aye
>>11226
nah I think it should be how it was pre-coup. 150 characters only on /leftypol/ and /edu/

 No.11274

Proposal: Bring brack the 150 character minimum for thread OPs on /leftypol/ and /edu/

 No.11280

>>11226
Oh good the jannies are trying to shove this shit down everyone's throats again

 No.11285

>>11226
I am for a character limit (we need to clarify however, which boards, I suggest only /leftypol/, the others are not a big target generally for spamming threads).
I would suggest a 100 character limit as 100 is the superior number. But 200 minimum is still quite low, the difference being about half a sentence to a sentence.
>>11243
this post is 73 characters.
>>10987
They are not necessary on the alt boards as we barely have a problem with bad actors and rule breaking there.

 No.11286

>>11226
I think the 150 character limit was a reasonable compromise.

 No.11289

>>11286
I agree. A single sentence ain't that long.

>Proposal: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
Who's going to write this? It takes a lot of work. Maybe we can reduce the scope to one specific subjectively moderated topic instead of "all" of them.
>Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations
Same concern as the one above. Maybe reduce the scope to create a list to make a ban list for.
>Proposal: Harsher measures against both bait making and bait taking
against on bait taking. Bait taking is a physical compulsion. deleting bait takers should be fine though.
>Proposal: Include a list of the word filters in the FAQ or rules page, just somewhere accessible so people know the current word filters in place
against. part of the fun is the surprise.
>>11183
For. I don't really like the FAGGOT wordfilter we have right now.
>>11226
For, any char minimum on /leftypol/ either 150 or 200 is fine for me.

## Comments (not votes)
>>10987
We do need to write down a very simple and boiled down list of rules. These rules change all the time, and it's hard to keep up even for us.
>>10973
>yes on the condition that the ban lengths are built into the software as a drop down menu
heh are you implementing that :P

This is retarded, you're literally killing a very important part of imageboard culture just to play with wordfilters,faggot is not even a homophobic slur at this point, this place is getting more politically correct every fucking day, I wonder when you will change the name of the site too.

 No.11421

>>10933
>Proposal: Create actual policies on subjectively moderated topics
clear guidelines that are visible to everyone would be helpful.

>Proposal: Standardize ban lengths for various rule violations

This would make moderation easier , if someone does X then they get a ban of Y length. And it would also work with the previous proposal . You could have all the common offenses and their ban lengths posted up for all to see .


>Proposal: Harsher measures against both bait making and bait taking


Bait making, yes you need to come down harder.
Bait taking , you are at about the right level of harshness , you only really need to come down harder if it looks like the bait taker is working with the bait maker , or they are the same person.

>Proposal: Include a list of the word filters in the FAQ or rules page, just somewhere accessible so people know the current word filters in place


Again having a list of current policies with a brief explanation and the punishments for various misdeeds would be a good idea.

 No.11456

>>11420
the FAGGOT wordfilter doesn't wordfilter the word faggot, it wordfilters C H U D to FAGGOT, all caps. a wordfilter from a few months ago is not "a very important part of imageboard culture".
also "imageboard culture" is the faggiest thing imaginable and should hold zero sway over how leftypol.org conducts itself, but that's a post for another day.

 No.11473

>>11420
Proposal:
Change the name of this Anon to fuckface, because they're being a massive pussy.
>nooo I'm being censored for saying faggot. This board is so PC :(
Read the thread you fucking faggot. and if you couldn't say faggot, just get over it or cry more.

What a fucking pussy, seriously. Get a fucking grip.
