Meeting Report 09/01/23

-Merge rules of the manifesto and the rule list to increase the consistency.

-Mod actions needs to be more visible so that users can be aware of what is happening. Warnings and bans are only visible when the page is refreshed.

-Discomrade will gather feedback from users and other mods. Will streamline mod reasons

-KGBeast has entered the mod chat. The mystery of his status is solved.

- Give people a warning instead of deleting their posts

-Saged thread must come with reasons.

-Recruitment to be done in March

-Timezone based. Away from typical American and European ones and more to South American and Asian/Oceania ones.

-Someone from the actual Southern Hemisphere?

-Separate dev drive. Get current devs to consider someone particular to join one of them.

-Roulette is not going that well this month but we will see the numbers. Still have new ideas for the next few months.

-Minetest server. Need to set up a server on Minecraft for community and exposure

-Revive New Multitude in a way or reformated a newslettler? like featured posts or something? Like new multitude as a leftypol newsprint of sorts and embed that in social media, especially for longer posts. Or a zine/newsprint style or a feed style

-voted to let Jae into the moderation team. Need to let Anti to give her credentials soon.

-Still need more Devs

-Brazilian collective declined their own board.

-Long term plans on the site's structure were suggested: split off generals into their own board, we could have a leftypol overboard (/leftypol/ and /general/), a social overboard (/siberia/ and /babel/), and a hobby overboard (all the various hobby threads). /edu/ could also be a part of it, so you have theory (edu) politics (leftypol), social, hobby and happenings (interpol) all in one overboard.

There's been a few Minecraft servers over the years, and minetest was suggested last Minecraft server thread.


Everybody is busy.


Meeting Report 11/06/23

-Need more devs. Huge void in the mod team

-Resolution: Recruit more devs

-Ask on imageboard. Tech board. Network off the site? Moody will try to talk to VK about it.
Ping people in the leftypol matrix chat to ask if anyone does devs work

-Misato has a pdf on what to change on the mod overboard and catalog 'PRIORITY: MOD OVERBOARD AND MOD CATALOG'

-Will send the pdf to Jae to see what changes can be made based on the comment

-Resolution: Have a public twitter room to submit stuff to post and discuss. Or make a thread on siberia

-Deputies people on board?

-Resolution: Move deleted post to gulag where we can review it. Do it to all posts and see how it goes for one month. Everyone to do it. Move threads to gulag. Move posts to a general thread in gulag. Everything except illegal content and ThingNoticing

-Subject wants accountability and enforcability on the moderation team. Will work on codifying.

-Sindikat wants someone to host on Mastodon.

-Moody wants specialized roles. Like Devs and/or social media specialists who do not necessarily need to mod

-More actions should be building a structure to bind members coz of Discomrade

-Be more vigilant in eliminating illegal actionable stuff. And questionable stuff like 'we need to kill this person.' to avoid feds.

-Deal with inactive mods?

>Be more vigilant in eliminating illegal actionable stuff. And questionable stuff like 'we need to kill this person.' to avoid feds.
Think about this for a moment. They are either already here, and in deep, or are too stupid to figure it out, so why bother.
Dogshit thinking, genuinely. At best an example of "premature optimization".


Yeah, honestly, seems like an extreme overreaction. It took like, 4 mass shooters posting their manifestos on 8chan before it finally got shut down, and it wasn't even the feds who shut it down. There was just literally no company on Earth willing to take the PR heat of hosting it.(spam IP)


We don't have a sexpat admin living in a non-USA-affiliated jurisdiction, unless someone else wants to take the legal/financial costs of hosting. Furthermore we don't want any users getting arrested like on 4chan, is it that likely? No not really, but it would be a huge headache for both you and us if it happened.


fascists dont get the same treatment from cops than socialists do


Yea we know these already, we were talking to the new moderators about what to ban harshly and what to follow to limits set by the site.



Extremely sorry again that I could not come.
I was held by health issues.


Thanks for the clarification. I'd still urge deliberation.


No worries at all. Get well soon comrade.


Meeting Report 10/07/23

-Central Committee idea by subject. To have accountability within the mod team where committee members are chosen by random within the active moderation team

-Active moderator needs to be better defined. Term limits are good enough

-Ban appeals that are equal or more than 24 hours can be only be judged by central committee

-Resolution: Everyone has to read it and give the go ahead to be fully implemented. Supermajority approval and high quorum needed.

-discussions about archiving.

-Shifting problematic posts to /gulag/ for potential review as a resolution is good idea. Will keep doing it. Part of moderation protocol now.

-Britain sucks. End of story.

-Quality of Life improvements: Misato has compiled a lot of requests for leftypol usability. Jae would look into to see which is feasible

-Possible changes to the report function. Multiple reports on the same posts are annoying to see.

-leftypol gotosocial?

-Sindikat will set up and maintain the Minetest sever when he is available

• Welfare check on everyone.

• Discussion about janitor, mod and dev recruitment took place.

• For the recruitment drive, one of the ideas discussed were site-wide sub-header / banner adverts.

• In addition, stickying recruitment threads on each board was mentioned for further reach.

• Midway through the meeting, subjects' fire alarm starts blaring 🚨 He safely evacuates and smokes a cigarette.

• misato smokes a bowl: "cheers to that, comrade"

• After that shit went down, conversation regarding mod recruitment continued, discussing the idea of also opening positions for single-board janitors.

• Getting Minetest server up on the main server, provided Sindicat gets access to the server soon.

• Meeting concluded with the intention of focusing on staff recruitment as our current priority.

Meeting Report 10/09/2023

-Tor pass system is suggested. To prevent the node being abused for spam.

-Would create 'private nodes' along with the public node that can silenced to prevent spam.

-Would need to create and manage the decs.

-Needs the devs to do that though.

-Resolution: Ask the devs to go ahead to look into this and see if it is feasible, no one opposes this idea

-Need to check on sever costs and whether we can pay for the coming year.

-Discussion over the new list of premade ban reasons

-making ban messages auto-update on the same time period which new messages are loaded would be nice

-Add rule numbers to the list of the premade ban reasons to justify how we enforce the rules.

-Rules and manifesto do not really align.

-2022 manifesto needs to replace the older verison in the link.

-Anything to do for the 9th anniversary? Make new reading lists and manifesto

-Alternate archive is already implemented

-Resolution: Vote/Decide to deputizes a certain poster to a jannie for /anime/

-Enforce the anti-sectarian rule?

-Anti-sectarian serves same purpose as non-idpol, punishing offenders trying to sap positive discussions.

-Removing too many posts? Arbitrary moderation maybe lowering acitivity. Or it is just the summer? Less moderation or moderators could be lowering the userbase too

-Move the leftypol meeting room to the staff ring

-More information about the website general to be disseminated

-GETchan voting to name themselves bunker site of leftypol

Can you not afford to pay them?


>Tor pass system is suggested. To prevent the node being abused for spam.
Tor isn't the main source of abuse FFS. This is a terrible idea.
>Alternate archive
What's the link?



Yes we can.

Not now, but large scale raids in the past use TOR. IIRC the raid that came from Thai royalists use TOR. This idea is just a backup in case we get raided and have to turn off TOR but still let people who need it to post still able to post.


> This idea is just a backup in case we get raided and have to turn off TOR
Ok, that's not bad

Also be careful with how heavy handed you do your moderation, the other site is relying on that for you to chase away the userbase and make this site unuseable.
Paste /i/res/1351.html to their link and you'll see.


Like literally right now ThingNoticer is using TOR to spam.

Yea we will try to test it to see if it works before implementing it.


Tbh I think it just means that IPs which are flagged as bad faith get banned under a single term. You don’t have to actually spam to get banned for it, it’s the mods way of telling you to fuck off and stop ruining this place.


>it’s the mods way of telling you to fuck off and stop preventing them from ruining this place.


spam is when one IP is posting dumb shit unrelated to the thread trying to incite hostility. I wouldn't comment more in this thread since it is meant to archive meetings.


Mods please keep an eye on leftych*n /i/res/1351 for the love of christ and get the devs working on countermeasures that aren't going to kill this site through heavy-handedness.


Lol, their site is so shit they look for any reason to come to us.

However, this thread is for posting notes about the meetings + some limited discussion from anons on the notes.

I have a suggestion for the mods - return the default name from Anonymous to Comrade. This would not only make it distinct from other imageboards but also remind people what we are supposed to be. Just a thought


The userbase is declining, nothing from the previous meetings has been implemented and your most active mod is in the midst of a mental breakdown and taking it out on random anons. But yeah, I'm sure planning a few gimmicks on special dates was the most pressing issue to discuss.

Well done to Misato though for being the only mod doing anything remotely useful by running the twitter/X account. The rest of you - excluding Zankaria for obvious reasons - are dead weight as far as I'm concerned.


Narcissus is calling


Sensible suggestions to prevent abuse of the tor node, made over many moths, were ignored in the appeal thread. All kind of unhinged posts were entertained though. Could you look into it?


If you guys want to react to the meetings, can you at least make a separate thread for it? I won’t entertain any more discussion in a thread that is meant to be an archive.

A lot of measures that were previously mentioned is being worked on, I just never wrote it down on the meeting notes or the mod in charge hasn’t update yet.

I will bring it up next meeting.

Can you post some screenshots or make a new thread?


I can’t say I disagree with pic related.




the mods here are retarded. there are /pol/uyghurs everywhere. there are MLs everywhere and no balance between commies and anarchists. people get banned at random. the OC sucks. need more inter board events. news on the front page hasn't been updated in two years. pizza delivery every damn week. WTF are u people doing?


We have succeeded in debunking anarchism and converting them.over to the truth. Seethe, liberal


>If you guys want to react to the meetings, can you at least make a separate thread for it? I won’t entertain any more discussion in a thread that is meant to be an archive.
Communication is key - if this is meant to be an archive, can you also adjust the OP to state that?
Before making a new thread, is there any existing place where users can not merely react, but discuss and make suggestions towards the direction of the site, if not the meeting thread? The moderation thread sticky is clearly no good because only about two or three mods bother reading it, with one seemingly just on the board to troll anyone who got collateral'd by rangebans. It's just frustrating seeing this site taking the time to get together just to act like an out-of-touch manager, ordering pizzas to placate the complaints about exposed wires and leaky roofs, because someone's gone through the complaint box and burned the all ones they don't like.


wait I read that as manager of a pizza place
meh doesn't matter


>Can you post some screenshots or make a new thread?
Plz not another thread. Simple suggestions months ago to make tor posts text only (when necessary) or to pre-approve them were ignored or never got any traction. Instead spam and drama was allowed to happen on the tor node. Now tor users are singled out with a tag which ridiculously defeats the purpose of using the node. Could someone take responsibility for this because it seems like an unnecessary drama?


We are already working on making a Big Brother (working title)
He will take responsibility for everything.
