 No.12173

Hello everyone. This is the thread to make this week's proposals. 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: 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. (this proposal has now not been accepted for 2 weeks and is STALE, it will be removed next week)

proposal: filter "socially conservative" to "actually reactionary"

proposal: filter "socially conservative" to "socially inept"

proposal: filter "stupid pol" to "stupid polyps" and "stupidpol" to "stupid polyps"

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.

 No.12179

>stick for each board
good idea, why not just go write a sticky thread for them tho?
>socially conservative
These confuse discussion. If somebody makes a post a la "what do we do about socially conservative socialists?" and you filter out the term nobody who's unaware of the filter is going to understand the question.
Just do something like filter conservative to conservatard.
>stupid pol
The subreddit is one word: stupidpol. Don't think I've seen anyone write it as two separate words.

 No.12185

This >>12182
filter troon to
Totally Ravishing Object of Obsessive Need

Don't just filter the word on here. Create an association and try to ruin it for the /pol/yps.

 No.12186

>>12185
Filter it to catboy

 No.12187

>>12185
So
filter troon to

Totally Ravishing Object of Obsessive Need
or
Troon, Ayrshire
or
cute girl
Man, this is really hard. How to decide?

 No.12188

If we filter it to catboy we get to see people get irrationally angry over catboys. Pretty simple logic behind the proposal.

 No.12481


 No.12483

Filter Tulcel to Lion of Damascus

 No.12485

>>12483
Based

 No.12489

>>12483
I'll second this one.

 No.12490

>>12186
No, Catman is hotter

>>12185
this

 No.12529

>>12186
>>12187
>Troon, Ayrshire
This is the only one that should be done, simply because it's not obvious and lazy but is still funny and mocking of /pol/

 No.12530

>>12173
>filter "socially conservative"
This is a terrible idea.
Social conservative =/= rightist and filtering it invites liberalism to infest the site. Moreover filtering it means that any discussion on the topic is going to be handicapped. Being socialist doesn't mean being a liberal about every single thing, that's undialectical and goes against Marxist and general socialist theory; change for the sake of change serves reactionaries and rightoids, not leftism.

 No.12604

Proposal: Permaban Sage

proposal: make ITG its own board, /eceleberry/
allow users to make threads instead of containing it all in a cyclical

 No.12715

>>12714
Yes, please. itg cancer spreads everywhere on leftypol.

 No.12728

>>12714
Terrible idea IMO, for one thing /siberia/ already exists for random offtopic shit, secondly an entire board for this burger inanity is just going to invite /pol/ cancer and radlibs. /ITG/ being cyclical is great because after a month people aren't still bitching about the same topic.

 No.12747

>>12714
>validating that topic with a whole board
I'm not sure if it's a good idea. See >>12728

 No.12750

Proposal: Filter seethe to I Agree
Proposal: Filter cope to Well said
Proposal: Filter dilate to Dialectic
Proposal: Filter touch grass to read /edu/
Proposal: Filter Janny to shitposter

 No.12751

>>12750
yes to all except the last, people have legitimate gripes about jannies, remember wordfilters are site wide

 No.12752

>>12751
This. I'm indifferent about the other suggestions (on one hand, fun, on the other, we already have a lot of recent filters and the first two can false positive based on context) but people who have legitimate annoyance at jannies can air them. It just sucks that they're outnumbered by raid posters from another website.

 No.12754

>>12750
>Filter seethe to I Agree
This is a terrible filter since leftypol also uses this in posts arguing against /pol/ (see Chinlet threads), the same goes for Cope and Dilate, these are just plain unnecessary and forcibly hamper arguments.
>Janny to shitposter
This is just obvious bait, Janny is standard chan shorthand for Janitor, and making it filtered is just really petty
>touch grass
the "read /edu/" is kinda funny but it doesn't really make sense, that being said, people do seem to abuse "touch grass" as a phrase, completely disregarding the meaning of it (touch grass -> Go outside and get off the computer)

 No.12755

>>12752
Or just call you mods instead of regurgitating 4cuck forced memes.

 No.12756

>>12754
what about 'touch grass' to 'do crime' or something praxis-like.

 No.12757

>>12756 (me)
But eh, I guess it's forcing a meme and I'm not sure if I like that. It's removing 'inherited' 4chan culture but it's forcing a meme. I'd definitely want to know if users are getting annoyed or consider it a cultural addition.

 No.12760

>>12750
maybe theres too many wordfilters already

 No.12761

>>12714
at least you're not asking for separate boards for each e-celeb like that one poster

>>12750
cope is found inside other words, so there would need to be some kind of checking to avoid that
filter sneed to something else

 No.12762

>>12757
Touch grass is more of a anti/pol/ thing, since its basically used to tell incels and hikkis to go outside and stop living on the internet

 No.12763

>>12750
>Filter seethe to I Agree
This filter existed on Bunkerchan for a bit, it got removed because it got super fucking annoying.

 No.12765

not suggesting, but you could wordfilter "touch grass" into "read theory" if you really want to.

 No.12777

>>12750
i changed my mind, i actually am against all of these now

 No.12798

>>12750
>Proposal: Filter dilate to Dialectic
This one I'd support cause it would never be in a real sentence. What about "get dialectical"?

 No.12850

Dilate your pupils Jannies

 No.12899

>>12850
Drugs are bad.
