Can the current threads in /anime/ /hobby/ are still being posted in, is it possible for this site to mirror posts from bunkerchan, whenever people post there?


Or should we manually repost?


Manually repost please, the bot being used to transfer posts wasn't made to work alongside the live site and the tech team is busy on other things at the moment


Please add a FAQ.


will come along with the new homepage we're working on

What would you suggest as FAQ?


Are you blocking VPN ?


No, at least we shouldn't be


Where do you want small tests performed if you deleted the test >>1 thread?


don't believe it was delete on purpose. But you can use /b/ as well


So does /dead/ have any jannies right now? we need to pin some threads back




Looks like OP deleted their own thread

Was that the thread about someone feeling oppressed by socially necessary labour time?
A shame if the OP did delete it, as there were some good posts and effort posts made. Maybe they felt unfairly got at because of the terminology they used to describe their situation was criticised for being a bit loose? It did sound like a horrible work situation they were in.
well, my observations on
>bar hostesses SNLT in persuading bar patrons to buy overpriced drinks
>if she does it quicker than the average (i.e. the SNLT) extra surplus value is created for the bar owner
>how this is part of reproduction of labour power (workers needing entertainment, R+R, to go back to work, like machines need oiling)
have been lost to posterity


Thread was salvaged here >>>/leftypol/35938


Great!!! Thank you anon.

No fucking clue what the libs on here consider "idpol" anymore. Posting about anything but burger politics maybe?


I'll take a look


It's that genocidal screeching about germans.

Idk, we've been getting raided. It's the second time today. Unfortunately, the mobile app doesn't work properly with strict cloudflare's DDOS protection. We'll have to find a good middle ground.

PLEASE address rampant anorectal violence spam outside of /b/!

I will write a filter personally if you devs are too damn lazy.


why would a user be permabanned from meta but not the rest of the boards

not saying this happened on this site
but if it did
what is the message being sent to the user in such a case?


I don't get it. I don't know how to respond.
could you rephrase the question?
I don't see why that would happen. Maybe spam? If mods wanted to silence someone, why not just ban them entirely?


Holy fucking SHIT JANNIES
I’m trying to post a fucking normal ass leftypol thread about history but your stupid fucking automod keeps saying “your request looks automated, post discarded”

Wasn’t your fucking website supposed to work BETTER than Bunkerchan, tf is this bullshit?


sorry, we were being spammed. shit's fixed now.


how the fuck do we end up locking boards during raid ? just make me jump through hoops (multiple captcha, whatever) but at least let me fucking post


Mind if I ask the purpose of porting over all posts from Bunkerchan onto this site? I feel like letting threads naturally spring up would have been a better course to do.


I think it was sound decision in optics perspective. Gesture to allure posters by offering sense of continuity.

Good thing fresh threads are springing up




Way late now, but: the issue isn't the content, but the post itself being invisible. It was a different node that got the b&, I just want to know what they're banned for so I can gauge what the liberal morons that make up the moderation now consider over the line.


Can admins mirror thumbnails so lurkers don't get their IP leaked to youtube thumbnail hosters everytime some glowie embeds a vid from there?
Better yet, don't do embeds at all so YT has a hard time detecting referral data.
Keeping this anti-feature is almost as bad as putting analytics on here.
Having cloudflare babycrush the site is bad already, especially when you let them handle https (since they now also have data on which threads people are looking at) but this is just gross


>Philippines’ Duterte plans to take anti-communist campaign global
>In July 2020, the government passed the Anti-Terrorism Act, which extended the power of the task force to include warrantless wiretapping, surveillance, and arrest without warrant for up to 24 days of anyone accused of terrorism. This act goes into full effect this year, and it appears that part of the implementation will be expanding Duterte’s campaign of violence to solidarity activists and movements around the world.
Mods, take note.

Jimmy Dore's criticism/attack of WSWS gets to hit bump limit/full. >>>/leftypol/56681
WSWS's response that just dropped gets insta-saged >>>/leftypol/61293


>Please unlock. I also think, this deserved a thread


>Ah, so Jimmy Dore the youtuber attacking a socialist org (SEP) deserves a full thread [that hits bump limit/full] but the SEP defending itself doesn't? And the thread should be insta-saged? Sounds like you just don't want others to hear the other side of this story. Isn't Jimmy Dore always going on about how Anti-Censorship he is and how important it is for the Left to fight Censorship?


what if /IG/ but on /b/


I'm starting to agree. Youtube truly dumbs down discussion.


Coming directly from >>>/b/10141 it seems there are a few of us who think anorectal anon should be allowed a (cyclical) thread purely for the considerable amusement value.




given the "muh trannies" shit that was just on there, agree

also thanks to mods for deleting the posts (including some of mine telling people to stop) to get rid of that shit


Furthermore, I personally would like to propose a filter be made redirecting them to their dedicated /b/ thread whenever they try to post.
I can write it up if the devs are too lazy busy.


Are there plans to have a cooler spoiler thumbnail? The "? Spoiler" looks quite ugly


uploading images on mobile is broken, on an iphone at least


Ban lolicon and shotacon, kek
they already have bunkerchan to post that shit, and we already voted to ban that in the first leftypol.org


This place has nothing to do with the old leftypol.org.


Not my post but why was this thread nuked?


what was it?


ok, lolicon still should be banned.
they banned that shit for a reason, i didn't want bunkers shitting up the site


>banned for racism

Where did I post racism exactly? You better add a link to the post that gets you banned otherwise this is confusing as fuck


looks like it expired, but I agree the post you were banned for wasn't ban worthy. Someone mistook anti-third worldism with racism.


Can someone explain to me what is this infrared shit I've been seeing on /leftypol/ for the past weeks? Why isn't it being contained in the eceleb general?


they were spamming /IG/ real bad so we let them have their own thread for a bit
now that the fever is dying down it'll probably be merged back into /IG/


don't mind me just testing


Are you guys gonna get rid of the schizo spam?


I would also appreciate moderation team's stance on science denialists. Is that lenin hat faggot still banned?



Requesting for mods to un-Sage and re-Cycle this thread: >>>/leftypol/34805

And replace the mod-added bold message that says:
>Update: Potential "Million Militia March" on Jan 19/20th 2021 as part of continuing Trump coup plots.

with mod-added bold message that says:
<Update: Senate Impeachment Trial Edition

I realize I posted gravure pics without spoiler in that thread, which I was not aware was against board rules. Mods can go ahead and spoiler all those gravure posts. I'm not posting anymore gravure in that thread anyway, I was just temporarily humoring that one anon that requested gravure: >>>/leftypol/45949 and also I thought it was fucking hilarious.

I am NOT Ushijima gravure poster >>>/leftypol/59627 >>>/leftypol/62250 btw, that's a different anon. But he is baste and has good taste


What's the point of having a thread where all the posts are just links to wsws and no discussion on them?


>all the posts are just links to wsws
False. The following are all links to non-WSWS analyses/commentary on the January 6th Capitol storming, posted by anons on that very same thread:

>no discussion on them

False. The following are some examples of lively discussion on that very same thread:

>What's the point

The U.S. Senate impeachment trial over the January 6th 2021 Trump-backed storming of the Capitol in Washington D.C. is still ongoing, this thread >>>/leftypol/34805 is the most directly on-topic thread in the catalog to contain discussion over that event and the impeachment trial, and since that thread was Saged and un-Cycled, many new details of the January 6th event, ongoing political maneuvers among both factions of the ruling class (Republicans and Democrats) and new analyses and commentary on the political implications of the January 6th Capitol assault for the working class vis a vis both the pro-capitalist Trump/MAGA far-right and the pro-capitalist Democrats (and the ruling class as a whole) have been written; with all of this happening in the context of a raging, deadly global Covid pandemic that's becoming even more dangerous with new variants and an economic crash that is the biggest in modern history since the Great Depression of the 1930's. And, concurrently, this all is happening amid rising working-class opposition (not just in USA but worldwide) to both the staggering social/economic inequality and the homicidal capitalist oligarchs' "herd immunity/let the virus spread" response to that same Pandemic.

As just one example of the worldwide implications, the Spanish far-right (which has deep tentacles in the military) has been emboldened by the January 6th putsch attempt to intensify its conspiracy to carry out a fascist coup and mass murder "26 million leftists" in Spain, just as Spain's Constitutional Court has recently ruled at the end of this past January 2021 that the 1939-1978 fascist dictatorship of Francisco Franco "did not commit crimes against humanity", which "constitutes an endorsement by a top European Union court for a four-decade fascist regime and its policy of mass murder and repression."

>all the posts are just links to wsws

Already addressed, but moreover, nothing is now or was ever stopping anons from posting links to analyses/commentary by other socialist orgs that aren't WSWS/SEP on the January 6th Capitol assault.

For example, analysis/commentary by Party for Socialism and Liberation:

Or by Workers World Party:

In fact, should mods un-Sage and re-Cycle this thread: >>>/leftypol/34805
I will post them on that thread myself since they are pretty good, decent analyses, particularly the one by PSL for its thoroughness.


>As just one example of the worldwide implications…
Forgot to add another illustrative example:
President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil has been very publicly supportive of the Trump-backed January 6th 2021 Capitol storming and has even suggested doing something similar to attempt to remain in power past his term limits in a self-coup in Brazil. This is the same Bolsonaro who glorifies the U.S.-backed fascist military dictatorship of Brazil (1964-1985) btw.

And his son Eduardo Bolsonaro is confirmed to have been visiting the White House in Washington DC (by invitation of Ivanka Trump) on January 6th 2021 (the day of the Capitol storming) having meetings/consultations with not only Ivanka Trump but also, among others, Mike Lindell, the MyPillow CEO who was trying to push former President Trump to impose martial law in the USA.


>>3536 >>3537
Is there some reason you're using assault, putsch, self-coup but avoiding insurrection?


No. It can also be called an insurrection (by the supporters of one faction of the capitalist ruling class against the other).


Bruh, the U.S. Senate just subpoenaed to call forth witnesses (possibly even Trump himself) to testify for the 2nd Trump impeachment trial on the January 6th Capitol storming. This means the trial will probably last at least another week and it's about to get spicy (hopefully):

Mods, please un-sage and re-cyclical this thread: >>>/leftypol/34805


Why are there three threads about how the stupidpol subreddit sucks in the catalogue and why is it mostly just posters making up shit in order to get mad at?


what is the official position of the moderators on infrared? why was the channel taken down?




Don't know or care who this haz is just like the thread unanchor plz?




Yeah, embeds don't play for me, i just get nothingness.


Can the mods answer what is the deal with their blatent fucking favoritism over one particular e-celeb, and why that e-celeb gets their own repeating general thread?


This, came here looking for an answer to this.


yo can someone check if this retard >>>/b/12767 is ban evading? something tells me it's same polack who made similar larp thread about working in PRC few days ago


I concur, thread that that should be deleted not moved, the op should be banned.


threads like that should be deleted*



he's not even trying at this point + he is showing the exact same formatting habit. I'll try to find archived thread to prove my point but he already crossed the line so he should be banned IMHO


And Mods still won't respond, go figures.


The interest in infrared is much much greater than things that are happening with shoe-on-head's boyfriend on twitter. /ig/ is for e-celeb gossip, twitter screenshots, and random internet shit that doesn't deserve it's own thread.

the mod team is very torn about this, both sides feel strongly about keeping it in /ig/ or not. The side that wants to keep it (me included), is fine to contain it once hype has died down (if it ever dies down).


>The interest in infrared is much much greater than things that are happening with shoe-on-head's boyfriend on twitter. /ig/ is for e-celeb gossip, twitter screenshots, and random internet shit that doesn't deserve it's own thread.
This is completely manufactured bullshit. The "interest" is greater because the threads exist, which causes the people who are already involved in watching it to use said threads. This argument is completely self-fufilling, you could literally generate the same number of posts with any other e-celeb when worded properly. /IG/ has always been for podcasts and streams, period, and this coping by saying that "No wait guys, this is different!" has never once been afforded to anyone else. It's a straight up manipulation of the rules up until now, and it's dishonest to imply that what is being permitted is some kind of healthy compromise.
>the mod team is very torn about this, both sides feel strongly about keeping it in /ig/ or not. The side that wants to keep it (me included), is fine to contain it once hype has died down (if it ever dies down).
And this is why I'm even more suspect, because this "guarantee" is a false one. Thread content can always be kept up, fans can always continue posting, and no specific metric upon which you could state that the thread is dead or the thread is alive can be made. The side stating "We'll just put it back once it's over" is making no real concession, because the "concession" is one based on a thing which they never have to allow for. It's like saying "we're not allowed to have this space, but once we're done using it frequently or on occasion, we'll leave". There's no actual guarantee you ever actually have to stop the threads, because creating the threads guarantees and justifies the continuation of them. How can you not see this? The "hype" right now is barely even existent, but the continuation of the threads are justified because of the disagreement about the threads or the content, or the fans generating posts about it over time. It's literally maybe 5 to 7 posters, maybe not even, who have legitimate interest in the channel itself, not counting people tuning in now for bloodsport debates, which have always only existed to flood threads with people just looking for a cheap thrill or laugh. Be fucking honest, this never had to leave the /IG/, and your justification for it being seperate is entirely built on it already being made separate.


But what's the harm in having the thread?


I've already explained this multiple times, but the biggest one is that it opens the door to other threads like it, and sets a terrible precedent. At best, it's hypocritical. At worst, it's hypocritical and sets us up for further "concessions" on the matter, as well as a board culture of e-celebs and bloodsports. And absolutely fuck that shit.


You don't have a guarantee but we, the mod team will reassess the threads if they keep going. And I believe making a distinction is necessary, if you make something yourself and want a thread it isn't the same as internet trash.


>if you make something yourself and want a thread it isn't the same as internet trash.
I don't see any interaction with Infrared in those threads, they don't appear to be anon at all.


I don't see how it should be a condition.


>And I believe making a distinction is necessary, if you make something yourself and want a thread it isn't the same as internet trash.
This isn't an introduction, a "now we're done answering questions, check us out when you can!". This is five threads in a row, regarding discussion about an outside e-celeb. This is by definition what went in the /IG/. You're acting like I'm being overly harsh, but this is literally the same standard and expectation I would apply to anyone else, and any giving e-celeb thread.
He has a point, in that this isn't some anon making his own channel, and then introducing himself to people once. It's an outside channel that was introduced from the outside, and has continued on from introduction to trying to establish itself as an ongoing presence through a general thread. Again, this would never be tolerated for anyone else.


Another e-celeb thread accidentally made outside of the internet general:
Thought you guys might want a heads-up, in case you missed it. Thanks for the hard work!


A person is constantly spamming (and I mean that word literally) wsws.org articles across /leftypol/. These posts clearly aren't organic, disrupt discussion and create a precident of commercial shilling which should not be tolerated in /leftypol/ of all places.
Please consider a solution, such as
>public warning then ban if continued
>containment thread like infrared
>ban filter (their posting style is unique enough that this should cause no adverse affects if done properly)
>word filter on wsws (fun, but might screw over based news anon)


I don't mind wooswoos links when they're actually relevant to news or discussion, but the spam has really gotten out of hand lately. Whoever it is used to be more restrained but seems to have gotten carried away since that embarrassing Jimmy Dore fiasco.


Might be worth allowing more infrared threads since if we troll their community hard enough we get links from their discord per >>>/leftypol/95624
which means more eyeballs


The mods current emphasis on cultural preservation at this point in time is fucking dismal. Do not even think of 'more eyeballs' until we get some basic boundaries set, or this place WILL turn into another generic left-themed shithole. I've watched image boards die from culture shock and I don't want to see it happen here.
You were there at the start of the split. You can see we've descended. And I don't need to tell you how far down we can go if things don't improve.




I wouldn't say 'HAS' just yet, give it a couple of months.


>Might be worth allowing more infrared threads
what the fuck is there to talk about that you can't use the thread you have?


Someone made a comment directed at youse >>>/leftypol/97111


Proposal for vote: Temporarily (5 minute) auto-ban any post made on /leftypol/ less than 140 characters in length from 00:00 UTC April 1 2021 until 12:00 UTC April 2 2021.
Attempts to artificially pad posts will result in a 24-hour ban and post deletion.


what do you hope to achieve? and pray tell how you plan to factor in image or pdf dumps into such a scheme
(126 with padding!)


Evasion? What did I evade? I wasn't the Lenin Cap poster I was just impersonating him lmao


Counterpoint: Pleroma is better.


A short-lived experiment to see if:
- a lower-bound character limit encourages people to explain their topic opener statements and replies beyond simple accusations, denials or unjustified statements, hypothetically leading to increased post-quality.
- such encouragement prevents bloat from posts asking for clarification or justification which should have been provided in the first place (e.g. 'No, that's fascist.', 'How?', this is just wasting space and time!)
- the lower-bound limit discourages low-effort shitposting and rule violations
- whether, if successful in achieving these goals, the community perceives this as a good thing; different but comparable automated quality regulators have not always been appreciated (such as prolikewoah's (iirc) harsh grammar-checker bot on their /a/ board, or various ROBOT9001 boards)

In the worst case, it should be some harmless fun for the traditional April Fool's Day.


This. You can even use the Mastodon front-end on it.
However do make sure to publicly weigh up the pros and cons properly before implementing.


>(126 with padding!)
140 was chosen on a whim based on twitter's maximum limit. Maybe something more like 64 (ignoring greentext) is more appropriate.
It is also possible to disable it on certain image-focused threads like the OC thread, if that's considered necessary. I don't understand why other cases would need an exception when images and other attachments are involved, they can usually benefit from explanation unless someone is asking 'does anyone have this picture?' or similar.

Hello mods, friends, comrades, ladies and gentlemen;

I come here asking one question:

Where are the flags?

Most notably the ones linked

Many thanks.


oh shit lmao, sorry about that


nah you're good. It was pretty fucking stupid of me to impersonate someone who kept evading bans though, so I can understand the mistake


Raid going on


If this site wants to allow tor posting (which it should) it needs to implement a block bypass like bunkerchan and other tor accessible imageboards have.


I think non-botnet captcha on standby is a better anti-bot solution, or people will just do the same with VPNs.
tbqh make a custom propaganda captcha where users are forced to demonstrate understanding of leftist ideologies to post during a raid.

Mods are getting too emotional about the superiority of Dengism and China. They are now locking perfectly good discussions.


We have no position over whether China is or isn't socialist/imperialist, however we do have a postition against utter repetition and having the same thread multiple times a day
