ITT: brainstorm how to bring more comrades from nationalities that do not commonly post here!
Some Russian users came to /leftypol/ from /ussr/. That was a somewhat successful attempt at internationalization of /leftypol/, and served as a proof of concept.

If you're reading this and outside of the parts of the traditional Anglosphere (US, UK, Canada, NZ, Aus) then consider letting us know where leftists in your country or language congregate online, how likely it would be for us to be able to bring any aboard, and how that may be done.
Consider even taking such an initiative yourself independently.
My personal countries of interest for this purpose:
>China
>Iran
>Japan
>Latin America in general, but particularly those with a budding left-wing movement such as Mexico, Bolivia, Venezuela, etc.
>Egypt
>Turkey
>Russia

A note about connecting with users from countries with state censors:
Keep in mind that we do have a Tor website ( 76i2c3hn55fcj5nut3tqlboqqbbh23zvphv7lefk3vftpx6wketlanyd.onion ). This should assist in evading state censors (which may not currently be necessary for accessing /leftypol/ but you can predict that anticommunist states would be interested the moment they notice it exists), but be wary of course, especially of instructing someone how to access Tor on a potentially insecure platform.
In the case of Iran, I'm aware that an estimated 50 million people there use Telegram, which can be encrypted, albeit not by default ( see https://privacyinternational.org/telegram-guides for some best practices ). It is also reportedly a popular program in Russia.

OP here, wanted to also list some reasons why this is highly beneficial.
Having users from a certain country gives you perspectives directly from that population. They are generally going to be saturated in the culture and politics. This lends itself to a more direct view of happenings there than filtering your views through whatever sources you can find in your native language. We can share the latest innovations in political and historical, etc., theory uniquely and newly arising in our own country with each other in a way that never would have reached us as quickly otherwise.

Having users all over the world means the boards should be more active at a more diverse range of times. This has a good feedback effect in that it uses up more of our potential activity-time, making the board more appealing for more of the time it exists and has newcomer eyes on it.

Bringing users from rare countries will make the existing few users here from those countries less lonesome. It will make their general threads more active and create more camaraderie as they share the most similar experiences.
