Hello everyone. We found the results of the last survey useful, and we would like to now gather more feedback on a different variety of subjects. The results of the previous survey have been analysed here, if you are interested in a statistical analysis and some conclusions. >>>/meta/7357

Here are the questions for this month; please don't feel pressured to answer every one if you don't want to, if you have no strong opinions then you may simply leave the question out of your response. Feel free to write as much as you like but please try to answer our quantitative questions as well as this helps us to interpret the results objectively. So, without further ado, here we go.

Question 1: The moderation team wants an evaluation by the userbase on their performance since the migration to leftypol.org in a few categories. Give a number rating with lower being worse and higher being best and a brief comment on performance if desired.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how quickly do the mods respond to rule-breaking content?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how do you think the mods have lead to a /leftypol/ conducive for quality discussion?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how well do you think the moderation has responded to user complaints and requests for the site and boards?
A simple yes/no, do you think the structure of the site overall is the best it could be as structured by the moderation?

Question 2: Thinking more generally about the way that /leftypol/ is now, the moderation would like to know exactly how the users feel about the composition of threads. Feel free to briefly comment to expand your thoughts if you wish.

Do you think that there are (A) too few generals, (B) just enough generals, or (C) too many generals in /leftypol/?
A Yes/No, do you think the prevalence of general threads is impeding the creation of worthwhile smaller topic threads? IE is the US general impeding the creation of more nuanced threads about US politics?
If you believe there are too many generals or that some specific generals are not befitting the status of being generals, you can list the offending threads here if you wish.

Question 3: Further about generals, a recent idea proposed was a new board – a geopolitics and news board, to move most of the generals (like usapol, China, DPRK, ect) to along with other topics that are more centered around geopolitical topics, leaving /leftypol/ to be less about news and geopolitics and more about theory and its discussion.

A simple yes/no: Do you think that this is a good idea?
As as additional question, do you think that there should be a board ONLY for country generals, while leaving news generals on /leftypol/? Do you think this is a better idea than a geopolitics board, a worse idea, or do you think they are both terrible?
Would you be inclined to use only /leftypol/, only the new board, or both if either of these ideas were implemented?

Question 4: Another category that needs evaluation is the character prerequisite for OPs, rate them by the following scales and include a comment if desired.

On a scale of 1 to 10, do you think the prerequisite has helped remove spam topics from /leftypol/?
On a scale of 1 to 10, do you think the prerequisite has prevented good or quality threads from being made?
A simple yes/no, has the prerequisite ever disincentivized you from making a thread?

Question 5: We are interested in collecting more feedback about how users would like /b/ to be moderated. Please select which one of these statements you most identify with?

/b/ should not be moderated at all, except for outright spam (IE machine spamming), it should be a complete free-for-all.
/b/ should be moderated very sparsely, only to remove outright Nazi posting and similar /pol/ content, users should be free to express themselves however they like.
/b/ should be moderated to a moderate degree in order to remove the above content as well as blatant idpol so that it does not become a de-facto 'idpol containment' board.
/b/ should be a comfy off topic space similar to the old /leftytrash/, therefore it should be decently moderated in order to ensure a nice atmosphere for users. Absurd or random posts should be allowed to stay but the above content should be removed as well as repetitive spam like soyjacks and so on.
My view is dissimilar to all these options (please write out your views).

Some have said that the name of /b/ creates confusion, and expectations that it should be similar to 4chan's /b/. Do you believe that the name should be changed to something else? If so, what?

Please also note whether you personally use /b/, and what 'grade' you would give to /b/ at present, from 1 to 10.

Question 6: A new proposal has recently posed the idea of integration with a webring between niche imageboards (https://anon.cafe/boards.js) (image provided) by /leftypol/ as a way to increase our exposure to other imageboard users, similar to when we started on 8chan, as well as helping niche imageboards survive. The webring is composed largely of splits from 8chan, some before 8chan was destroyed and some formed after. The webring allows us to blacklist members we don’t like from appearing on our list, and vice-versa. leftypol/ and /b/ currently would be placed at and near the top of the webring by PPH and activity. Of these categories, pick whichever ones you feel best describe your opinion.

It will be positive, granting the possibility of new posters to /leftypol/.
It will be positive, bringing new OC to /leftypol/.
It will be positive, it will bring new posters and allow crossover events and content on the alt-boards (/hobby/, /games/, ect).
It will be positive because it creates a more unified grouping of chans.
It will be negative because it will invite unwanted posters to the site.
It will be negative because it will change /leftypol/’s board culture.
It will be negative because it creates incentives for our posters to browse other boards.
I think it will not have much of an effect on /leftypol/ either way.
Other (feel free to comment on what).

Question 7: A short one - do you think that the page size (the number of threads displayed per page) should be increased from 10 to 20?

Yes, I do, because it will make it easier to see more threads and for threads past the first 10 to thrive.
No, I don't, because it might impact performance on some devices.
Other: Please let us know.

Thank you for your time, we appreciate all feedback!

Question 3
I think it has the potential to be beneficial, the /auspol/ thread (for example) usually sinks lower down the board and discussion is sparse, having all the countries centralised might spark more discussion on local threads (key word is might).
No, news and country threads should be together, there are already many dead to low activity boards.

No, we have not been invited, we have not asked anything yet, however the webring is decentralised so we only need the permission of one site in order to join and connect to the sites connected to them. They seem quite accepting as they want new traffic and so on, so it probably would not be an issue to get someone to approve us. The only reason people have been kicked out of the webring that we know of, are for not implementing the webring plugin, or for persistent raiding of other boards (by /fascist/).

Obviously if we could not join at all, we will move on and think of other ideas.
>>

 No.7448

The reason we had trouble getting traction on the 8ch diaspora webring last time I looked into this idea is because space_ had some sort of reputation for spamming other websites (whether it was true or not). Without him out of the picture we might have more success now.

<It will be negative because it will invite unwanted posters to the site.
To elaborate, I think we should absolutely under no circumstances invite MORE imageboard types here. We should invite from everywhere in the world except imageboards. We have too much of that already. It creates problems. If we have good leftists from all across the internet, we'll avoid the insular tunnel vision that often comes with seeing your niche internet space as being emblematic of real life. I am very against this idea.

Question 3:
No, the exclusion of geopolitics generals would be a bad idea. I think most people participate in those generals and miscellaneous topics equally, to separate them would just make browsing and participation intolerable. I also don't see a reason for it, since the board is not fast enough to say that they're really getting in the way of anything.

hard to tell
I think we are too welcoming to polyps a lot of the time

Q2
B
I don't mind the generals. I think more users should post OPs however if they have an idea they want to discuss, as long as it's not just a bait thread

Q3
No kind of. I don't think it's a good idea to move them entirely, I think it would be better to have them duplicated in a overboard sort of feature just for geopolitics and news, but remaining on /leftypol/
>Would you be inclined to use only /leftypol/, only the new board, or both if either of these ideas were implemented?
I use leftypol way to much and try and visit everywhere but I know a majority of users only post in /leftypol/ so it seems like a bad idea and I feel like adding completely new boards will slow them all down individually

Q4
9
I have seen significantly less spam I believe
5
I'm not sure, it seems traffic may have slowed down but there was a million other things that have changed around that time like the traffic from the redirect and article dying down etc.
No
But I only really post ops on /b/

Q5
2.5
I think that good faith idpol content is fine but oftentimes it's just reactionary/fake sjw bait. Honestly I've never seen a problem with liberal idpol on here or bunker at all, it's always been socially reactionary/tailism sort of posts that hide behind the label of "anti-idpol" and that's what I find obnoxious. I think that debate of these ideas can be constructive at times, however I think any attempt at equivocating socially reactionary ideology with liberal ideology is bound to fall apart or further encourage this stupid "nazbol" sort of internet identity. Therefore I would say good faith discussion should not be treated the same as contrarian appeals to reactionary thought. Either no idpol at all (which seem unfeasible) or allow good faith discussion and anchor outright reactionary bait (which is subjective) and otherwise leave it up to sage and rebutal or whatever
I don't think that allowing polyps free reign on the site including /b/ is a good idea and I think they should be moderated strictly outside of debunk threads simply because they are obnoxious attentions seekers and never add anything aside from occasional amusement.
/b/ is probably okay but something dumb like /p/erestroika could probably work too
8
it's pretty great overall

Q6
<It will be positive, granting the possibility of new posters to /leftypol/.
<It will be positive, bringing new OC to /leftypol/.
<It will be positive, it will bring new posters and allow crossover events and content on the alt-boards (/hobby/, /games/, ect).
<It will be negative because it will invite unwanted posters to the site.
<It will be negative because it will change /leftypol/’s board culture.
All of the above
I noticed some pol and r9k type boards on the webring and I'd really rather not encourage polyps and generally misanthropic toxic types of posters. I used to use 4chan all the time as a kid and that's one thing that burned me out of it was all the incessant negativity. I think it could be a great way to encourage new posters for special interests and curious anons that want to learn about us, but the list would have to be carefully selected and vetted first to avoid making leftypol another miserable 4cuck clone

Q7
No because it would probably be slow on mobile and people can just use the overboard anyways

4. Sadly there is a whole slew of bad faith secretarianism that goes on in these boards when topics of anarchism, maoism etc is brought up. I can understand if it's meant to be funposting, but it needs to be SHOWN that it's funposting. We can't necessarily understand eachother properly through text.

B
<A Yes/No, do you think the prevalence of general threads is impeding the creation of worthwhile smaller topic threads? IE is the US general impeding the creation of more nuanced threads about US politics?
No. Usually when there is a happening most people make a general for it anyway. I think if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I'm neutral to this. But I think having the theory and geopolitics on one board allows anons an easier time to cross reference etc. Say something happens regarding the Zapatistas. It's good to have an Anarchist/ Lib-Com general up to understand the Zapatista theory and then look at what they're doing in that given context etc. That being said, it could also be good to have people actually read theory before shitting their pants over Anarchism.

>As as additional question, do you think that there should be a board ONLY for country generals, while leaving news generals on /leftypol/? Do you think this is a better idea than a geopolitics board, a worse idea, or do you think they are both terrible?

Would you be inclined to use only /leftypol/, only the new board, or both if either of these ideas were implemented?

I think it's a lot easier as things are right now. The whole spontineaity of organisation of generals on the main board is kind of what gives /leftypol/ its charm. But it's no big deal if this does happen.

Q1: conflict of interest
Q2: indifferent, nothing wrong with less containment though if it doesn't start to dominate the board

Technically the mod who suggested it has been using multiple webring boards for years, and as mentioned some sites have expressed interest in new blood. Like any imageboards there will be a few loud autists, but there are also leftists and tolerant grillers who will just laugh at them. Most of the boards are politically neutral (or contested).

Yes
Question 2: Thinking more generally about the way that /leftypol/ is now, the moderation would like to know exactly how the users feel about the composition of threads. Feel free to briefly comment to expand your thoughts if you wish.

Do you think that there are (A) too few generals, (B) just enough generals, or (C) too many generals in /leftypol/?
B
A Yes/No, do you think the prevalence of general threads is impeding the creation of worthwhile smaller topic threads? IE is the US general impeding the creation of more nuanced threads about US politics?
No
If you believe there are too many generals or that some specific generals are not befitting the status of being generals, you can list the offending threads here if you wish.
There are some generals that are not being recycled: South America, for example.

Question 3: Further about generals, a recent idea proposed was a new board – a geopolitics and news board, to move most of the generals (like usapol, China, DPRK, ect) to along with other topics that are more centered around geopolitical topics, leaving /leftypol/ to be less about news and geopolitics and more about theory and its discussion.
No
As as additional question, do you think that there should be a board ONLY for country generals, while leaving news generals on /leftypol/? Do you think this is a better idea than a geopolitics board, a worse idea, or do you think they are both terrible?

Bad idea> I want to see new posts while I search for generals. Splitting would give me less interest.


Question 4: Another category that needs evaluation is the character prerequisite for OPs, rate them by the following scales and include a comment if desired.

On a scale of 1 to 10, do you think the prerequisite has helped remove spam topics from /leftypol/?
8

On a scale of 1 to 10, do you think the prerequisite has prevented good or quality threads from being made?
7
A simple yes/no, has the prerequisite ever disincentivized you from making a thread?
NO

Question 5: We are interested in collecting more feedback about how users would like /b/ to be moderated. Please select which one of these statements you most identify with?




/b/ should be moderated very sparsely, only to remove outright Nazi posting and similar /pol/ content, users should be free to express themselves however they like. This + Also avoiding idpolizing the board.


Some have said that the name of /b/ creates confusion, and expectations that it should be similar to 4chan's /b/. Do you believe that the name should be changed to something else? If so, what?
Classy /b/ means random, so I guess it is ok, I am open to be changed.
Please also note whether you personally use /b/, and what 'grade' you would give to /b/ at present, from 1 to 10.

Of these categories, pick whichever ones you feel best describe your opinion.

It will be positive, granting the possibility of new posters to /leftypol/.

Question 7: A short one - do you think that the page size (the number of threads displayed per page) should be increased from 10 to 20?

Yes, I do, because it will make it easier to see more threads and for threads past the first 10 to thrive.
No, I don't, because it might impact performance on some devices.
NO
Other: Please let us know.

Hello friends, I'm sort of a Webring Emissary (I own several boards on different IBs and I've also helped gather some more IBs, like Erischan or Frch). I'm in no way an official rep, just an autist who likes alternative message boards, so make what you want of what I say. For my part, I'm a completely neutral part, maybe not a griller but I don't let idpol cloud my judgement. I do browse this place though, as I do with most other alt boards for the heck of it.

As it stands now, I find it very hard for you guys to join the Webring. As you've said, you are completely free to add the plugin, modify it as you see fit and even blacklist boards you don't like (I'm assuming you expect to have the same happen to you). However, the three main hubs who decide who stays and who goes are mainly the Cafè (apolitical, as they kicked /fascist/ out of fear they'd heckle), Smug (who won't be likely to accept you) and Alogs/Julay (who don't really care). You will face opposition even from the boards who will let you guys in, as it's likely that the most butthurt of the bigger IBs will blacklist them in turn to avoid linking up to you.
That being said, I don't think that your entry and acceptance by other IBs is impossible. Providing a home for ex 8chan_prime boards that have lost it along the way would be a good way to show that your intentions are genuine. If I may, I think that the Admins of this fine place should rather seek out those from the top three in order to come to an agreement. You may want to use the following to contact them:
https://anon.cafe/meta/
https://smuglo.li/support/
irc://irc.rizon.net/julayworld

Another word of warning: if you do manage to get accepted, expect people to immediately ask for a /pol/-oriented IB to also be added to the list to counter your presence.
There is also the matter of the Infinity Cup. Although I personally would really like to see the original teams play together, the Host has not shown much interest in adding a /leftypol/ team back in. Although they've also claimed that all boards connected to the Webring are technically part of the tournament, but you'll just have to wait and see.
>>7447
>The only reason people have been kicked out of the webring that we know of, are for not implementing the webring plugin, or for persistent raiding of other boards (by /fascist/).
This is mostly correct, though the third "case" concerns IBs who have added nuclear boards. For instance, 8chan.moe added /hebe/, a very controversial board that could potentially harbor paedos, but despite plenty of anons asking for it to be removed or unindexed, they refused, and were kicked out by all IBs simultaneously.
>>7448
Webring anons are mostly grillers, but there's a good portion of them that agrees with the theory that /leftypol/ was one of the reasons 8chan prime got worse. I don't have any opinion on the matter, my only interest is finding and creating more places for anons to talk about whatever the hell they want to, without a bunch of moral guardians picking and choosing what they can think. I like your OCs, though (vid related really got me).

Additionally, 8moe is not on the webring but they still have the plugin up and running, so you could theoretically link up to them. I hope this helps you out, also ask away anything you want.

Julay got through just fine, except for the /v/irgins who migrated to 8chan (mostly), zzz/v/ (part of them, but they increased in size after the /hebe/ debacle) and fatchan. It's still alive thanks to /cow/, /ita/ and /robowaifu/, neither of which really interact with each other or other Webring boards, except /cow/ being obsessed with GamerGate and /japan/'s BO, while /ita/ interact with all the other boards, especially during competitions.

You can always bring that up on /icup/, provided you also help setting things up. The board was created to host any kind of inter board activity, though it defaulted to the Infinity Cup exactly because it's much easier to set up, doesn't require too much input by whoever hosts and even if the people organizing the teams aren't online at the moment the entire thing can proceed without a hitch.
The Board Owner and the Host are two different people, and while the Host is kind of a stickler, the Owner seems pretty chill.

Speaking of, you could probably help the guys running the show by touching up your own page. infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//leftypol/

Hi there,
I've sent a message to anon.cafe's contact shortly before this announcement (since I am a regular for over a year). I might start contacting others. /fascist/ were hosted for a long time and contradictory religious boards still are, anon.cafe seems apolitical, not anti-political. What makes you doubt smuglo.li would follow?
As for /icup/, SKF has a false belief that /leftypol/ colluded with Hotwheels to take down 8chan. Even disregarding the fact that we were hosted on 8chan too and that Hotwheels is a lib, I've never seen any theory nor evidence of this. Regardless it seems to be a firmly held belief and they say /leftypol/ won't enter for as long as he runs it. (I mean, even /pol/eague gives us a team!). Do a CTRL+F for leftypol in their stickies to find it.
Thanks for the effort post! I know a couple of boards we have decent rapport with so in the (IMO unlikely) chance the big three reject us, there still some nice places we can get included in. I'm fully aware some select users will throw a fit and give us rent-free property; they do even when /leftypol/ isn't there! But it's not as if we aren't used to that.

You can always start one. Would /v/ boards be interested?
The random-number-generator robot cups are effective because it allows lots of modding and aesthetics building, is easy to understand and manage and doesn't require much timezone matching, plus big/gamer boards have little to no advantage.
I recall seeing a reddit vs 4chan CTF game a while back so anything is possible. You just have to organize it.

@Webring, were you there for the radio stream? It was either smug or prolikewoah, over a year ago now. That was great.

Sorry for the late reply, I didn't see the thread so I assumed it got deleted.
>>7510
/fascist/ got removed because, presumably, their users started raiding other boards and their BO wouldn't act on it fast enough. Now the board sits on 16chan and it's dead, basically.
>What makes you doubt smuglo.li would follow?
Smuganons are very risk averse and will be the first to drop any IB at the first signs of danger. I am fully expecting some anons trying to connect this and 8chan being removed.

Frankly, I've been reading through replies and it seems to me that there's three issues that currently prevent you guys from joining:
1) The image anon have of you guys being no different than the bleeding heart liberal / Twitter Woke poster (which is decidedly false, as I've read the /itg/ thread plenty of times and you definitely do not strike me as the same kind of people);
2) The idea that you and Hotwheels are in bed together (probably has to do with your ex Administrator and their insistence on publicly advertising the boards to non anonymous users);
3) The fear that raids could be done onto their own IBs. This of course could have happened even without a shared platform, but it's a genuine concern that anons have, given that it's not unusual for pedos and shitposters to come and do the same, especially in the more fringe boards. This is the easiest myth to dispel, just show your good nature disallowing that kind of behavior by blocking psyops on other boards - which should be a practice on all IBs to be honest. We'll always have schizos, heck, there's this one dude who claims to be a rep for /icup/ and goes around all manners of boards inviting them to make a team, and their mods have to come out and repeat to the very confused guests that no, they were not sent an invitation.

Basically this. Anyone can find a 3D model to use for aesthetics and you don't really have to have a strong strategy to win, heck, we've had meme formations outplay more orthodox ones.

Haha that damn schizo. I have no idea what their deal is, they've done it at least twice in two different years. I'm not even sure if they're naively trying to help or false-flagging to make it look like spam and start a raid.

Make a webring with 8chan.moe (which got kicked out from it). The opposite autistic forces of /leftypol/ and /v/ (heavily influenced by GamerGate and /pol/) will keep each other at bay, just like USA and the USSR during the cold war.
