Why don't the users elect and recall mods? Comrade 02/03/2020 (Mon) 11:07:55 No. 4133 [Reply]
Those who are applying for the position can have their post history displayed publicly and then users can decide. And the decision would be in the form of "If no one has anything against _". We have mod logs, those mods that do stupid shit can be recalled after enough complaints; wouldn't even need a "majority", but if they get a dozen complaints they're out. Why pretend like there isn't a reserve army of bullied kids ready to grab onto and wield some internet power? For every bad mod, there are half a dozen less bad ones waiting to take his spot, probably. Then maybe Admins wouldn't need to prostrate themselves and beg for forgiveness after a rogue mod does something stupid.

>>4135 or you could specifically select those with a long term posting history and invite them into an off board communication place with one vote each
>>4139 I think more people need to enter into the irc, too, personally.
>>4138 not sure which is the best option, there are probably others also. It would be good to have a conversation about how it might be possible to implement some kind of a democracy however
Mod Moderator A person who moderates A person who makes discussion more moderate. The opposite of a revolutionary. This is my song to you mods. Contemplate it well. Meditate upon’t
Votes suck, arguments exist.

>>>/GET/45269 Not only I get perma-banned for using the word 'neurotypical' the fucking mod mocks me because I am Spanish, the fuck is this shit?

>>3847 what sort of parties do you have?
>>3848 comrade king you banned me thinking I was the castillian ban evading wtf you didn't even cared to watch the post history.
>>3845 /leftypol/ mods have no power over /GET/ mods and vice versa so it's not realistic to group them together
>>>/GET/45271 >>>/GET/45269 Imagine calling me an autistic sperg, using the 'muh tendies' meme against me, defending a neolib, perma-banning me for saying neurotypical + catalufo and still thinking that I am the one who is a reactionary. Listen up I don't give a shit if your community is 9 years old, do you see that sidebar up there? Now, it's not your community, is our community, fuck off, if you want intimacy and your own rules create a fucking Discord server like all the Twitter trannie mongs. You neurotypicals sure love to mock autistic children for safe spaces free from sensory overload, the special signs to avoid being shot by police and our 'sperging out', but you are acting like a bunch of hypersensitive snowflakes. I'd bet you were the motherfuckers spamming reports two months ago to get me banned in /dead/ and /leftypol/
>>3831 Based mods, tbh

>>3934 Reading the manifesto should be considered a requirement.
https://bunkerchan.xyz/.global/logs/leftypol/2020-01-22.html I have just experienced several threads I was in being deleted. Being surrounded by so much purging gives an uncomfy imageboard experience. I would like to see a rundown what kind of posts were exactly deleted, because the logs are unspecific (no reasons are given for deleted posts, leaving user insight into moderation process wanting) Comatoast, frankly, scares me.
>>3984 I have put forward a proposal that all bans must have a reason attached.
>>4041 Seconded.

Would the community improve if we all moved to a reddit style website? we could downvote those anarkiddies into oblivion heh

Is that a real board?

Remove this ban: >>>/leftypol/236886 You shouldn't ban people just because you disagree with them. Better yet, give us back >>>/dead/ where buttblasted tankie mods won't ban us for calling them out.
>>4086 you can literally always go created /dead/ on leftypol.org if you want a bespoke board for you niche community.
I lifted the ban

Thread Deletions and Acceptable Topics Comrade 01/27/2020 (Mon) 23:21:32 No. 4068 [Reply]
Fellas, can we get some word on what topics are kosher for the board? This thread was containing a discussion that's derailed other threads, and there were quite a few effortposts and serious discussion. I can't help but think someone deleted the thread because either the topic is considered off-limits or worse they didn't like the course the thread was taking. This particular topic (prostitution) can of course derail easily into idpol, but that wasn't happening here, and if idpol folds into class should it not be open to discussion anyway? Part of our job is to have a way to push idpolistas toward classpolistas.
4 posts omitted.
The hot takes thread was deleted too and even though there were good posts in it.
>>4073 The hottakes thread was out of control and most of the content was trash. It, itself, being an idpol thread. It was allowed to exist far longer than it should havfe, imo. >>4072 To me, bumplocking is justifiable if the thread in question is semi-related to the board or semi-deserves to be on it. Take a thread that belongs on a different board but is still elftist related, or, a thread that might belong in a general; Such as a duplicate USApol thread. That would be a good use of the bump lock feature. But having a thread that is totally irrelevant to the board or just random spam or some shit needs to be deleted, obviously. Or if there are many duplicates of a thread. You don't want the board to look static and unchanging. You want us to look alive, cause, well, we are.
>>4070 The point would be to make material conditions for workers so that they don't need to sell their bodies for money. How is that even an issue?
>>4068 Where did this notion that we need to delete idpol threads.come from? On 8chan /leftypol/ we had tons of idpol threads. I remember a decent number of posters who would use the anfem flag, and then there was hoochie of course. The point of being anti-idpol when I joined was to AVOID censorship like what goes down on /r/socialism (like the catgril drawfag ordeal). If a thread is annoying and shitty we can just sage it into oblivion. The only reason I can see to delete an idpol thread is if it keeps getting bumped by the same person. If a thread is being bumped by enough people (with the exception of a coordinated raid) then I think that I know the mods on /leftypol/ where unpolular, and I wasn't really around for the last year or two of it's existence so idk what went down. I know the community has matured around certain issues especially regarding actual existing socialism and I think that is great, I won't miss the users we lost in the /leftpol/ split. However, I don't think just because a lot of the anarkiddies are gone or have grown up that means we should start engaging in censorship. This isn't a party. Maybe this is a hard truth for some of you but we aren't going to lead the lead our class to revolution by posting on /leftypol/. That's why it is important that you engage in real world organizing. For me at least /leftypol/ is a way to chill out and escape the tedious social mores that exist in a lot of real world lefty organizations. >>4069 The W stands for WORKER you absolute imbecile. The whole debate is whether or not SWIRFdom constitutes class politics. Obviously SWIRFs are gonna disagree with your point, so by saying "SWERF vs SWIRF shit flinging is not class politics" ... YOU ARE LITERALLY ENGAGING IN SWERF VS SWIRF SHITFLINGING
>>4081 Fuck. First paragraph is supposed to end with >then I think that is reason enough to keep it around.

New boards Comrade 01/15/2020 (Wed) 11:24:50 No. 3937 [Reply]
Follow up on this topic over at /leftypol/ >>211795 While the topic didn't really take off, the poll results are encouraging. /his/ got nearly as much votes as the active IPs on /hobby/, so did /tech/ and /lit/. https://www.strawpoll.me/19222677 I'm not saying that those are the boards that should be created, but this shows that there is an interest in "off-topic" discussion and if a mod/admin started a vote I'm sure more people would answer. There is no large non-idpol/radlib online space where one can discuss topics other than politics and socio-economics. If we want to talk about history, movies, music, literature, our options are liberal reddit, where you have to create a new account if you have ever posted in any of the leftist subreddits, making it a nightmare ti use, or the conservative/pol/fascist 4chan; or some slow, niche board like lainchan. The claim that creating a board or two will somehow "kill" the site is unfounded and baseless. Worst case scenario they end up as dead boards and can be removed, just like /dead/ and /tech/ were removed. One thing is for certain, before you create a board, ask the community what it or they should be, to avoid the /hobby/ mistake where you created a board no one wanted and now it's stagnating. Just like some anon wrote elsewhere that /hobby/ is not doing well because it doesn't have an identity. Boards made for a topic or a theme, like history, will result in its own culture, "memes", etc. tl;dr: right-wingers dominate non-political discussion on all the major platforms. This is a chance for us to expand, attract users and provide a leftist alternative.

>>3940 How do we know when the time to create a newboard actually is, though? It's pretty obvious people want something new. Just make a newboard already, jesus, lol.
>>3937 Biased poll, forces you to select at least one board. There should be an option for no new boards; our population means it'll be creating a selection of empty posting graveyards.
>>3947 >There should be an option for no new boards That's a good point. But you and only one person in the /leftypol/ thread were against creating new boards. >our population means it'll be creating a selection of empty posting graveyards. Why do you think people are unable to post on more than one board?
>>3949 I'm also against new boards and I haven't posted in the /leftypol/ thread.
>>3952 Why do you oppose them?
