>Merging /music/ and /hobby/ together AGAIN
Please no, I liked having them seperate (not to mention that the mods accidentally copied some threads when making /music/ so there are LITERALLY 2 identical threads on /hobby/ and /music/.
If the mods are going to merge these boards (ill advised as that is) then I suggest removing a lot of /music/'s content that is just esoteric or has 0 posts in it, since it won't be a music exclusive board and too much of that will clutter /hobby/… I mean /ent/ (also why not just leave it /hobby/? You're going to fuck up all the posts redirecting to /hobby/ a la >>>/hobby/2 will now lead nowhere if you change the board to /ent/

/i/ is a tolerable idea, but given that e already have /siberia/ there really is not point for another random/trash board.

/hilldawg/ – your number one online community for stans of Hillary Rodham Clinton! (And her husband and daughter, too!) We will share the memes, review the merch, and laugh into our salads together.

We will also have downvotes and upvotes so you will know how to feel and think about each post. It will work like this:
1. When you see a bad post, reply to it with OOFYIKES.
2. When you see a good post, reply with HARRYPOTTAH.
3. When you open a thread, first do a vote tally with pen and paper.
4. Tape the score results to the monitor for reference.
5. Now you can read the thread!

How is that based? These are terrible optics for men on the left and the left in general. It makes this whole sphere seem dumb and nasty.

Anyone involved is shooting themselves in the foot. There's no reason to target CC.

Not true. There are a lot of female posters. There used to be LARPers and more tradposters a few years ago, but they're basically all gone. It originated from an imageboard that's almost entirely all women, and that was spawned from female posters on /cgl/. CC admin is actually really strict on the maleposting and LARPing, much better than lolcow's admin. She bans for suspected male posting when other female imageboards only ban for admissions.

instead of a specific proposal i put a philosophical question:
is the aim of these boards to be a place where leftypol users discuss X, or where good discussion of X can be had in general?

>>11307
for example is obviously ironic, but it brings a thought: when 8chan died there was never really a good successor to /furry/, or maybe it was /fur/, i can't remember which one was the "good" one, but there was one that was basically for discussing furry drama, worldbuilding, media, that kind of stuff and one that was for porn dumps. the porn dump one was obviously replaced by /trash/, that's a closed market, but nobody's replaced the other half. (i think there are attempts on the various totally-not-CIA 8chan spinoffs, but that shit's dead.) leftypol could do that if it wanted to, but to succeed - since most of the userbase aren't furries - you'd have to bring in the audience of the old board, or even a new audience, and a lot of those people might well just be vaguely liberal types who want to use the furry board and "don't care about politics"

now the most desirable board probably isn't /furry/ unless someone wants to play the sheepdog and actually direct people to using the board. (even just in a casual kind of way like directing people who want to talk about slow shit like the ergonomics of furry clothes or whatever on 4chan to a thread on /leftypol/ that isn't going to die in 10 minutes) but i'm picking it as the example anyway because if there's something i love to do it's picking examples that completely overshadow the wider point by provoking a visceral reaction against the idea of this or that specific board.

so when suggesting a board it would be helpful to say: is this a board aimed at capturing some of the audience for a board in general (for example i swear i remember at least one person suggesting /music/ might get some users from /mu/ sick of the /mu/ userbase, so in that sense it "competes with /mu/"), or do you specifically want to discuss it with the already existing userbase on /leftypol/, with the slower board speeds but lower amount of work spreading the word which that likely entails? (i.e. /leftypol/ doesn't really "compete with /pol/" because /pol/ meets demand for right-wing politics circlejerks, while /leftypol/ meets the demand for discussing imageboard split drama and men who sell rugs.)
a question downstream of this is: is the aim to have an overarching leftypol.org culture and community, or to have a vague overarching culture and then "board culture" for each specific board? (obviously it's easier to have one sitewide culture if new boards are only made for things that existing users want to discuss, but you could certainly make boards which are essentially trying to bring in new people while trying in the longer term to introduce those people to the wider site culture.)

my position is: i haven't decided yet in general, and each specific board is its own case. more important than new boards, i would say, is finding a way to balance slower and faster boards on the overboard so that recently bumped threads in slow boards are more likely to come to the attention of those who overlook them.

The animals and alcohol threads should be merged with existing ones on /hobby/ (the animal thread on /roulette/ preferably becomes the dominant one, since the OP image is actually an animal). The thread on Withania somnifera ought to be merged into the drugs or cooking thread (the most relevant).
Job Interview and Faking Resume should b merged.

 No.13352

Here's some ideas.

/praxis/ or /prax/ for discussing things you can do to materially advance socialism (needs moderation to prevent idiots doxing themselves or falling for datamining)

/read/ for dedicated threads about specific books or reading lists, as a way to encourage reading groups and to grow collections of texts on particular subjects

/effort/ or /discourse/ or something like that for people to only make serious posts going more in depth on a subject. Expectation of a few paragraphs for OPs or posts that aren't replying to somebody. Replies can be shorter because they might just be pointing out something specific or noting a minor error.

/cow/ for content that's just about laughing at stupid shit. That can include things like
<internet trash general

If leftypol.org does /draw/, a few things should be understood.
1. Requests need to be discouraged or contained in a thread.
(In order to not overburden drawfags/OC makers)
2. Artists should have a thread for sharing advice and communicating with each other.
3. Should also be an OC thread for anyone to contribute OC.

>We need more drawfags

I'm not sure how /leftypol/ had so many drawfriends in the first place. Did anons go out and find drawfriends or bring their drawfriends or pay drawfriends? Were many drawfriends already leftists?

 No.13393

>>13392
For about 2 years there was double the post rate so probably close to double the number of people and more chance of people drawing and being inspired to draw.
I made a 'shitty drawthread' on /siberia/ a month ago and at least 3 or 4 people got involved, so there's something to go on.

>>13392

No, because we need /draw/ to get drawfriends to give us more Alunya pictures. That is what /draw/ should be all about, imo.

 No.13496

>>13495
the board could be unlisted like /dead/ but there's upsides and downsides to that (ive dropped the idea personally).
the mods seem interested in doing an embassy thing with other sites so i dont see how its a problem trying to make a board for a group of people who are finding alt-chans to get away from male dominated chans. so you could have a /leftypol/ version of a women's board, as opposed to the other 3 versions of this i know of (CC, LC and GT) which have not really been all that anti-capitalist in nature.
also like i said, i favor /draw/ for october, and this proposal is for november, not the least because if implemented it should be discussed some details of it first.

 No.13497

>>13496
uh idk why my trip dropped but this post is me lol

 No.13498

BTW. part of why i think /draw/ is good is specifically because it could attract people from off-site if you build threads full of resources for learning to draw etc. if they are tidy and such, and if some people stumbled across it.

>>13489
No. What you actually want is an attention whoring board for you and your tripfag buddies. You already have enough on Siberia, you seriously need a whole board?

>Do the draw board, we need more drawfags.
She explicitly said that she supports /draw/ as the October board and in the /siberia/ board she said that she also hopes it turns into its own board. Which I also agree with.
Of course there'll be more popular ideas but I hope this one gets approved one day, even if it fails. There's nothing to lose.

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.

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?

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).

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.

>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.

Assuming the board goes well enough, /draw/ could simply become its own board rather than be deprecated after its /roulette/ session.

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)
