Do you really want to have a girls board? have you all considered that this is literally idpol? Why we should have a board like that? most people posting there won't be girls anyway (unless you do some kind of gender check to enter).

This is a very bad idea, is literally inviting idpol shit and TERF's into the site, if they even show up (I doubt it).

I think it'd be a good idea to rip the solutions to these from 8chan's old /girltalk/ board.

Men are put to one thread on the board, banned from posting out of it on the board (not a site-wide ban for violating this in our case, just board-local).
Politics is similarly put to one thread on the board. This cuts the pol out of the idpol for most of the board.

Both these containment measures were put in place on /girltalk/. I don't know what you would name this board on leftypol.org, but I hate the name /girltalk/ for some reason so don't do that lol.

If you apply the politics-related rules from /leftypol/ to the board's politics thread locally, I truly don't think "TERF's" are going to be a big deal, since that's often people without genuine interest in leftist politics these days who are more interested in going after a minority in a /pol/ like fashion than building a cross-demographic anti-capitalist coalition.

But, part of the point of /roulette/ is to test it out to see if it works, right?
If the flaws prove to be too wide you could just nuke it at the end of the month

How are you going to enforce that rule? Go full nazi CC and watch out for words and cues like "Gf" etc? Ask for proof basically doxxing yourself?

Also why have a girl talk board in the first place? what's the reason and the logic behind that? If you want to talk with other girls so much make a dedicated thread on siberia, maybe you could try it on roulette for fun though, if everyone else wants to do it go on, but DON'T make it a permanent board, that would be a terrible mistake and discrimination based on gender (so idpol).

Pic related, except replace 'the rest of the website' with chans in general. 4chan is particularly hostile to women and so it's a demographic who seek out alt-chans. The ones that currently exist that are mostly women have various downsides so I can understand why some would like a /leftypol/-tinted one.

The current women's alt-chans that exist strike me more as "/r9k/ but women" or "/pol/ but women" than "/leftypol/ but women" kek.

I'm still VERY skeptical and I consider it completely unnecessary but whatever.

Just don't make it a permanent board, listen to me, this thing would cause far more trouble than it's worth, and making it permanent would infest it with males roleplaying anyway, completely defeating its original purpose.

>4chan is particularly hostile to women
Not really, a lot of women post on 4chan and a couple of the boards are dominated by female posters. You'd only get shitposted at for being a women if you brought it up in a context where it's completely irrelevant to the discussion and seems more like a grab for attention.

In my own experience /adv/ and /co/ have a 50/50 gender split and /y/ is mostly women. Only the /v/-/pol/-/r9k/ coalition act autistic about women posting, but they're shit boards not worth posting on.

As a male I don't understand what you'd need a female-only board for. What kind of discussions require a female-only rule to prevent men from wrecking?

 No.13526

>>13525
Not so much a need, as much as I believe it could be a nice place, and that it's more likely to attract a new userbase than many other board concepts are.
For one thing you're talking half the population's interests rather than a niche hobby or something.
And for another, we already demonstrably see that this demographic is fueling and seeking out prominent alt-chans. Is there like, an alt-/co/ or alt-/v/, etc., that have taken off as their own imageboard, not just an alternate version on a make-your-own board site like 8chan and its copycats but an actual entire imageboard that's not dead?

true, though there's still friction between male and female posters from time to time
>/co/
might also be true, it's also one of the big boards that have been the most resistant to /pol/ shitposting
>/y/ is mostly women
I think they've been "losing territory" (so to speak) to hostile gay men in the past few years, same on /cm/, or so I've heard.

>>13515
>if they even show up (I doubt it)
I also don't think that they'd show up, but your concern is still valid.
But, I also don't know what the nature of such a board would be. Would it be like /lounge/, or would politics be allowed? I somehow feel that a board for women on here would be pointless, since we already have a bunch of boards that cover a wide range of topics, so what would there be left to discuss in it? Whatever it is, most of it could be discussed on the female-oriented imageboards, though it's almost guaranteed that won't get opinions from other leftists, which is why we like it here.
Another imageboard, female-oriented (but not female-exclusive), and inspired by leftypol but not specifically political, would be more appropriate since the userbase would be different (even if it overlapped with leftypol's).

>>13518
>Politics is similarly put to one thread on the board. This cuts the pol out of the idpol for most of the board.
>but I hate the name /girltalk/ for some reason so don't do that lol.
agreed
>Men are put to one thread on the board, banned from posting out of it on the board
disagreed, most posters on here would have no intention to annoy us, so this doesn't seem necessary.

>>13519
>If you want to talk with other girls so much make a dedicated thread on siberia,
Being the second most active and the "random" board, there's too many shitters (native and non-native to the site) to simply ignore them, and not enough of us. There are also no rules to stop them, although the board is better now than it used to be. It's not only that, but many of the topics in /siberia/ are discussed from a purely male perspective. Understandably, it gets tiring/boring after a while, so every now and then, some of us go to other places when we want to talk about certain stuff. The thing is that those places are full of awful people with garbage politics due to the nature of imageboards. I would like something that's more "leftypol but for women" like >>13520 said, not just for me but for others too, so that they don't have to settle for something like CC (where I've seen many users complain about it, in part due to it being a TERF circlejerk or officially not allowing the discussion of politics, and wishing there was a better imageboard for women).

>>13523
While it's true that there's a considerable amount of female users there, 4chan still has a lot more male posters, and not all of them tolerate or even understand the idea of women posting anonymously among them. Moreover, there's a strong /pol/ influence on the site, especially the bigger boards, which unsurprisingly puts many female posters off. Outside of /cgl/ and a few other boards, the only places that are consistently more or less female-friendly are those small but cancerous generals where everyone is an avatarfag and knows each other (though not always).
It's also annoying to always be assumed to be male and expected to not complain about it, you know? You might think it doesn't matter, but put yourself in our shoes. It's like not being able to say you're Mexican or black because the majority is American and white. So we consider the "attention whore" argument to be just a lazy and outdated excuse, hence cases like /girltalk/ >>13520 and CC.

I ended up reclecting on what >>>/siberia/156956 said, in that separating ourselves from male imageboard users could be a good thing for female ones. I'd like to test that theory.

>>13526
>Not so much a need, as much as I believe it could be a nice place

>it's more likely to attract a new userbase than many other board concepts are.
Like I've already said elsewhere, female imageboard users going to CC and being indoctrinated by TERFs, radlibs, misandrists, etc. even more into idpol and further away from leftism is something I would like to prevent as much as possible. Not that I can do much, but at least I've tried to offer /edu/ as an alternative to someone looking for a place to discuss a topic without /pol/ shitters ruining it.

yeah I was thinking a little more and I think we should only implement once a thing once it actually is too much of a problem. But I think we could have a female and male flag like /girltalk/ posters consistently used, to quickly distinguish and not have a lot of "grill here", "man here" lol

<this is a [safe space] for girls on the chan
Thus ruining the point of an anonymous chan and proving that to actually be a girl on 4chan you have to "post tits or GTFO" so that you don't get called a whiteknight or LARPing fag.

Also a /girltalk/ board is redundant, there are not enough actual topics or interest, a skincare thread on /hobby/ struggles to stay afloat even with interest of males and females. The entire concept of a girl-centric board is just asking to invite idpol, especially feminist liberal idpol, the same way the BLM threads used to.

>Zhenotdel

That might work… but you'd need to maintain strict moderation prohibiting any kind of liberal idpol or intersectional pseud-shit because that's the kind of content that Clara Zetkin and numerous other female activists of the USSR vehemently opposed.

I don't want to be too prescriptive about how to set it up, if others think there's ideas to make it better then so be it as long as it doesn't completely defeat the purpose somehow (e.g. the board just gets overrun with men trolling or something).

BTW, I should have added before, but I think it would be good in the sense that I think any new users it would attract to that board in particular, would also visit other boards. So, you may get at least a little bit of new user influx.

It doesn't necessarily have to be a competition with other women's boards, but we might find a model that is distinct from theirs and so attractive in some way(s) to seeking users.

Due to this site's low user count, I think allowing male users to post on the board may not be too much of an issue assuming, you have distinguishing flags in use (picrel) and things don't disrupt the board theme too much. Best case scenario in my mind, this turns out so the board has a lot of usage by women but doesn't require a ban on men posting.

After the Inktober theme for /roulette/ is over I think the Tutorial thread should be transferred as a separate /hobby/ thread, while the animated manga thread goes into /anime/.

Assuming the board goes well enough, /draw/ could simply become its own board rather than be deprecated after its /roulette/ session.
I was going to contribute a tutorials thread (is there one now, then? I suppose so..) but didn't have enough material saved to contribute.

Agree with adding that as a feature, though that should go in the other /meta/ thread for an agenda or suggestions.

It's not an excuse I'm pointing out that, to legitimize her board, Cherry almost literally had to follow the "Post tits or GTFO" rule to make her statements accepted as actually the opinion of a woman and not the opinion of a virtue-signaling male
>f you're not suspicious or discriminatory towards about a female user.
Unless you're referring to the banter people have with Junko I'm not sure what you mean by that in relation to /siberia/.
> If that shit didn't happen in /siberia/ no one would be talking about having a female-only board.
It doesn't tho? I have never seen posts mocking or attacking female users outside of obvious joke posts and typical /b/tier banter.

Regardless my point is that a chan is supposed to be anonymous, you could be a fucking eldritch monster posting on the board and nobody'd know, because it should have no bearing on the forum discussions. The creation of a "girls only club" board essentially ruins this and more importantly is an easy target for liberal idpol. That's the reason a General Thread on /leftypol/ (called Zhenotdel) would be much more useful and far less likely to be idpozzed and objectively focused on female problems and rights.

nevermind then.
>The creation of a "girls only club" board essentially ruins this
Like Junko and I have proposed, it wouldn't be "girls-only", just more female-friendly (so like /siberia/ but without the "obvious joke posts and typical /b/tier banter" you mentioned, or the shitty orbiters; anyone would be welcome to post in there as long as it's neither of those)
>That's the reason a General Thread on /leftypol/ (called Zhenotdel) would be much more useful and far less likely to be idpozzed and objectively focused on female problems and rights.
