The site will go through a period of teething issues, please make note of technical issues that you notice here. Problems right now that I know of: - movies don't upload fixed - reporting always returns "wrong or expired captcha" fixed - "divBanCaptcha_location" at the bottom of pages. fixed - clicking the "catalog" link from the "moderate thread" view returns a 404

Site Updates

We've just finished updating our front end. Reporting now works. The error at the bottom of the page is gone. You can now access board logs from the header. And the about and global rules pages have been updated from their default text. You'll also notice that the email field has moved. It's no longer at the top of the posting form. Instead, click on the "more" button below the files section of the form, and it'll be there. This is to prevent it from being auto-populated by your browser. Lastly, and most importantly, we'll be implementing a new feature to prevent spam starting today. Rather than using captchas for threads and posts for the most part, posters can now fill out a bypass that will allow them to post for 12 hours. This bypass will take several moments to work, as it involves your browser cryptographically solving a problem to provide proof of work. This will help to prevent spam in the future. We can't rely on cloudflare to protect us from everything, and spammers are always finding new ways around it and whatever firewall measures we enact. This should be a more definitive solution. Let me know if you have any questions about the update in this thread.

Site Progress

We've come a long way since we moved to the new domain. What we've accomplished so far Back End progress: - Upgraded to lynxchan 2.5, this has facilitated many of the improvements made. Setting up the board software properly, with input from stephen (lynxchan's creator), has made everything run smoother in general. We can now troubleshoot much easier, and running the software as it was intended to run. - Upgraded servers so that we have daily automatic backups created - Upgraded security. By upgrading to lynxchan 2.5 and also upgrading our front end, we know have access to proof of work bypass verification which will eliminate pretty much any spamming threat that can get past cloudflare. - Re-established our Tor Onion Server - Eliminated 500 errors - Set up 2 gb of swap space, which we didn't have on old servers. This effectively gives us more ram to work with when the servers are under stress. - Scalability. Before, the site would sometimes break due to heavy traffic. The spammer has helped us test how the new back end handles this, and even with hundreds of posts a minute and thousands of IPs per hour, the site kept running as normal. Front End Progress: The front end we inherited from Space and ComradeRat was incomplete and glitchy. We created a new fork of lynxchan's default front end (penumbra) to fix these issues. - Fixed watched threads function - Fixed the reporting function - Fixed issues with headers and navbar - Fixed mobile issue of certain elements being too wide due to text not breaking. Now the site should fit on the screen naturally. - Added mod log link to board header - Fixed side catalog links - Filled out our global rules and about pages. - Fixed webm upload issues - Eliminated missing element text from bottom of the page - Fixed orange text - our old add on was outdated and needed to be recreated - Fixed anchoring and pinning - used to cause temporary errors - Mod tools like post history are now integrated into our internal ban log to better review and lift bans. It is my belief that our current lynxchan build and front end is more secure, more reliable, and better looking than the alternatives. Speaking with Fredrick, he made it abundantly clear that vichan based software was not the future - something I take very seriously given his experience with 8chan. Our mod team is also leaner and less personality focused than before, which helps prevent reddit style moderation and drama. There has been lots of /pol/yps and nazbols coming in lately and we're treating the same way we always have - allowing debate while banning nazbols and shitposting/bait. With the report function fixed, it's my hope that moderation of /pol/ shitflinging will also improve. Let this thread serve as a temporary site development feedback thread on /leftypol/ - it'll be transferred to gulag in a few days.

why don't /pol/shits just convert to judaism?

they seem to envy them a lot because they can't make up their minds whether their the master race or subhumans. But jews accept converts and allow non jews to take classes to learn about their religion and history. I have a cousin who got married to a jewess and he converted, it took a year but he did it.

Create /mu/

Hear my argument based on the following key points: >4chan's /mu/ has turned into a /pol/ colony at this point Most threads are thinly veiled fascist shit (and by now not even veiled at all in some cases), and the mods do absolutely nothing if you report them as breaking the rule of "no racism outside of /b/" anymore. This is especially bad with the metal threads, it's common for them to be "eradicate mud peoples edition" or some shit like that and they circlejerk about NSBM. They have a /wpop/ general now, too, which is often a thinly veiled white supremacist circlejerk. Not always in either case, but the "mood" on the whole board has shifted to one where anything out of the /pol/ line is not welcome. If you try to discuss music made by leftists or even milquetoast liberals, the thread will be shat up by /pol/tards and derailed. It's reaching a point where soon only music made by certified fascists is welcome. The last bastion of non-/pol/ on the board are self-promotion threads, but even though most of the musicians who post there are not /pol/ tier, most of the lurkers even in those threads are so you'll get fascist fans if you post in them. I'm not sure how many non-/pol/ non-musicians are left on /mu/ or where those who've left it have migrated, but if there was an alternative /mu/ that was certifiably non-/pol/ forever, that would obviously be good for those who've become disillusioned with the growing /pol/lution of 4chan's /mu/ and could even serve as a de/pol/linator for some who'd find it just as another music board. It could even show a good impression of leftism to those who, when they hear "leftism", think of centrist liberals and/or turbotankies, since if they liked the music discussed (or especially music made by the board's users) they could well have a personal "huh, so this is what leftism is about?" revelation when reading the discussions... anywhere else the board might be taken over by centrist liberals and/or turbotankies, but I highly doubt that could happen on this site, which is another reason why it'd be a good idea. It'd also be good for leftist musicians since we'd have a low-threshold community where we could make connections, collab, share our music, etc. regardless of genre. A lot of current leftist music communities focus on punk, metal, etc. and can be pretty insular, which is fine but it means they can't serve as viable alternatives to 4chan's /mu/. Since this site already has a leftist userbase, if we had /mu/, it would be the perfect alternative to 4chan's /mu/ for those who're sick of that whole site's /pol/lution. >/hobby/ isn't bad, but the non-/pol/ users of 4chan are less likely to find it than a dedicated /mu/ board What I mean is, /hobby/ is good as a catch-all board, especially when it comes to the discussion of politics in entertainment and so on, but a separate /mu/ would be better for and more likely to attract those disillusioned with 4chan but still want to discuss music on an imageboard. This could even, to repeat myself a little, bring some of them into leftism rather than give in to the constant barrage of /pol/ shit they're subjected to on 4chan's /mu/. So, while /hobby/ has music threads, it's invariably "scattered" in a way; this wouldn't happen if we had a /mu/ board. Also, if our /mu/ would be for discussion of any and all music, even music made by non-leftists, it could be used to discuss the political views of said artists in a way that's inherently less shitty than what's possible on 4chan's /mu/ for obvious reasons. We could have dedicated threads for the discussion of the political views of non-leftist artists and what's wrong with them, similar to what's on the RABM subreddit, but not only about metal and in a way that isn't in a Q&A-type format. It is possible on /hobby/, but it has to be either too general or too focused, unlike if we had a /mu/ board. >there can never be too many leftist music communities Pretty obvious if you ask me, the reality is that most music communities are not leftist. Most music communities either ban the discussion of politics and users will have to guess each other's political views and it creates tension, or ban more and more political ideologies/subjects and grow insular as time goes on, or they remain free-for-all and flamewars ensue. There are so few leftist music communities that any new ones would be a significant ray of hope, and one that doesn't regularly descend into infighting over ideology would be a true blessing. I mean, this site has less infighting than any other leftist site I know in spite of the fact that many of us disagree on even the most basic issues, so if we had a music board, it could have the potential to be the perfect leftist music community on the internet. There's literally no downside to it. Please consider it, at least.

Posting with flags, admin tags, tripfagging, ect ect ect.

What is every ones opinion on this? I think it is necessary to display an admin flag or even the flag with a name name, but, I don't think it is necessary to constantly do it. Many mods around here do it quite often.

I'm just curious and trying to get everyones opinon on the matter to see how we feel about it going forward. I don't think it's a bad thing but I feel like sometimes people use it to try and build an identity.

Further more, what does everyone want out of the flags? Do we want more or less flags or just keep the flags where they are?

Personally I think over saturating the flags is a bad idea. Give me some feed back /gulag/

Reunification Now! Stop the Split! I know this is going to anger people who already have taken a side, but I’m just saying what the majority of the people think about this shit. Both sides need to realize they have made some errors and are BOTH contributing to the decay of the community by continuing the split. Until the splits end, NONE of the two websites will EVER recover the PPH and user number that had before the split. You know why the number of users dropped? BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE TIME TO CARE ABOUT YOUR PETTY SHIT. The sooner the split ends, the sooner we can grow back the user base and be back on track to build a big and influential leftist imageboard. Mods and Admins of both websites need to reestablish contact with the other side and begin collaborating in concrete terms to make this realization possible. With honesty, good will and as well as reasonable amount of open-mindedness I believe we can reunify in less than one month. I am therefore highlighting my proposal to heal both site and make them into one big site again: <the mods teams of bunkerchan and leftypol will merge into one, both sides will wield equal power <the tech-teams of both websites will merge into one and collaborate to make the website better <total transparency of admin and mods activity, ask the users for feedback and use their choices to take a decision when tension arise between mods <no more suicide-nuking of the boards, issues must be resolved with the community directly, no matter his position, if someone is hindering the progress of the site, remove him <which final site we will go on depends on what the users prefers <the url of the old website will redirect to the one the users chosen <the threads created on the old website will be transferred to the one that the users chosen <optionally, GETchan will be reintegrated directly into the website What do you guys think? Do you have any idea on what kind of terms should the reunification happen? Inb4: >i’d rather stay divided because the other side is bad!!1!1! (petty sectarianism) >the other side is full of transhumanists!!!1!!1!11 >the other site is now filled with nazbols1!!1!111 >the other site only cares about shitposting!!11!!1 (rationalization of your emotional pettiness) >our website is now better than the other side’s!!!111!1 (false sense of superiority to justify your emotional attachment to a specific website) >the other side was bad in the past, therefore we can’t trust them now!!!11!1!11 (the nefarious factor, space_, was eliminated, there is no reasons to expect further conflicts of interest) >their website’s technology is shit!!!!1111!11!1! (you don’t have any proof that it’s actually shit, if it works it works and it’s currently the case for both websites, that’s still a rationalization of your emotional pettiness)

On what basis should I even believe that this website is not one immense false flag / controlled opposition operation by /pol/-tier reactionaries? The board administration is almost completely stocked with reactionaries, their behavior is precisely what one would expect from reactionaries seeking to sow unrest (random and indefensible bans, inconsistent Tor access, lack of rule enforcement, unreliable board moderation, etc.), and the IRC is literally full of ultratraditionalists and fascists who think homosexuals are working with trans people in Soros-funded campaigns to enforce mass abortion and funnel children into the arms of pedophile rings, being "moderated" by someone who explicitly states as much and who was appointed by space_ himself! And as we all know, space_ has been a reactionary since the very beginning. I am convinced that this entire board is a setup for harvesting radical leftist time and data either for mass surveillance or to allow reactionaries to control the discourse. It's no wonder this website uses CloudFlare and is trying to ban Tor usage: it wants the IPs and post histories of everyone who had leftist sentiments. If it isn't, then prove it.

/hobby/ Mod feedback thread.

/hobby/ Mod feedback thread Hello everyone, and welcome to /hobby/! This topic will serve as an introduction as well as the mod feedback area. I know that some people were not on board with our decision to merge the boards, but please give it a chance and hopefully you will find it to be as comfy as where you used to hang out, but with more population. In addition, Comrade King has kindly volunteered to migrate over all the topics that have had activity in the last few weeks so you can continue your conversations. However, I want to stress that this board should be treated as a clean slate and you should make use of the freedom that it allows. In this space feel free to make topics about any kind of hobby, entertainment, passtime, interest or vocation. These topics don't have to be related to leftism, though of course you should feel free to do so if you would like. Overall, this board is intended to give refugees of 8chan somewhere to post about their favourite interests without having to go into whatever new skinhead-infested DoD honeypot is created to replace it. An example of the kind of topic that might be encouraged is to start a topic discussing your favourite workout routines or recipes, or discussing an interesting movie that has recently been released. We would encourage people to put effort into their OPs however, as one line shitposts might be more comfortable on /GET/. As we have merged other boards in order to create /hobby/, we would like to remind all users that it is possible for more boards to be created in future out of /hobby/ if they demonstrate a good user count/post volume such that they would be able to support a board on their own. Overall, the moderation standards here are similar to the ones on /leftypol/, and I have included their manifesto for reference, with the exception that posts do not have to have a political slant or basis. I hope you will all enjoy this board together and that we can have some good conversations.

It was fine until week or 2 weeks ago - i have no problems with browsing on my phone, but now its very limited.

Only way for me to see posts is to cancel page load almost immedietaly, but then javascript functionalities dont work - i cant reply to posts, because clicking on post number wont write it into post inputfield. I cant jump to post by clicking postid too, and "Go to bottom page" button does not work too. I can create new posts (without images), probably because its serverside POST function and does not depends on Javascript my browser does not support. Have you changed something in past few weeks?

A proposal for hosting Newsanon Posts

One of the recent initiatives of /leftypol/ has been outreach towards other leftist demographics across other sites, and one of the ways we have done this best is by sharing informational posts and pictures throughout different communities which have proliferated far and wide. For instance, the old screenshot of Harry Potter and how it relates to liberalism and it's inability to desire lasting systematic change has made its way across most leftist communities by now and has become a common joke in part due to its proliferation. One thing that we have that could be used in such a way but haven't yet fully utilized is the NewsAnon posts, which have been ongoing throughout /leftypol/ for a while across different anons. While we could share snippets of the overall posts easily, I think there is a simpler solution. This is a pastebin analog which we could use by hosting it on our server to hold NewsAnon posts in a simple format which could then be spread to other leftist sites with a simple link. Likewise, this would also allow us to have a catalog of NewsAnon's posts for future reference and cross-checking of sources and whatnot.

Honest question.

So basically gender dysphoria (a conversation on transexuals) is idpol, so hence I can never have a conversation on it at this site? Mods this is a sincere question, I in good faith want to know. If the answer is yes I will simply never mention it again. If the answer is no and I can have a conversation, how? I legitimately was struggling with the culture war aspect and how I think it negatively hurts the left. I really did want to be informed on its nature more. So please mods or a oldfag who knows what's up on the policy of all this, inform me. Sorry if I'm making a repeat of another thread on /b/. If mods want they of course can remove that similar thread. I forgot about this board for a moment.

A rant about the moderation

I've already said this before on here but I may as well make a thread dedicated to it.

The mods on /leftypol/ are trash, extremely trash and I think the moderation team on this part of the site needs to be completely changed I know I'm probably pissing in the wind but in all honesty but one of the benefits and points to an imageboard is anonminity and the lack of a circlejerk, the mods don't respect either of these aspects and because of that this site has been seeing less and less users coming into this site the few users that do show up now are mostly redditors, remember that this place isn't Reddit nor is this the moderator's personal circlejerk and that was the main problem with the original /leftypol/ when it went to hell, not the fact that it was run by a tankie or something like that.

tl;dr the mods suck

Idpol ban

This is unworkable. Who defines idpol? Sorry but I've spent so much time trying to educate radlibs that idpol without class is fascist-adjacent shit, but we don't need to go to the other direction where we simply talk about class without anything else. The world doesn't work like that. Yes idpol is a social construction, but so are the """commonsense"" explanations as to why capitalism spread (this is literally in marx btw). What was wrong with having a thread about it? Are we seriously going to have a leftypol where talking about racism is banned on site, but we can have a e-celeb general? Come on, I thought this place was supposed to be better than that? Are we not allowed to discuss the New Afrikan Black Panthers anymore? Theodore Allen? Stuart Hall? B.R.Ambedkar? Fred Hampton? Something I've realised (and there was a thread by someone else about this recently) is that all the things we despise "idpol" for, the hysteria, the categorisation of victim/oppressor dynamics..these are already being talked about by the people in that mileu. If you want to ban bait threads from tourists fine, but that should already be covered in the rules, but all that's going to happen is that people having meaningful conversations about the intersection of race, gender and class in a capitalist society are going to be disciplined into second guessing themselves because they will wonder if their post will be banned. Say goodbye to any effort posting on that front. Not to mention that this will also encourage bad faith posters to try and shut down threads or posters they don't like by screaming "IDPOL" and mashing the report button. The current sticky in leftypol doesn't say anything clear. it just says "the mods will crackdown". That's not good enough. Be clear about what will and what won't be tolerated.

Why does this board no longer allow dissent? When I first started posting on the old /leftypol/ on 8ch over 4 years ago I was drawn to it precisely because of its unrestricted nature. But now I get regularly hit with bans for making unpopular posts despite providing plenty of evidence for my views and always seeking to engage people rationally. Yet I get called "schizo" just for being frustrated with the world and seeking to convince others. I fear within a year or two /leftypol/ will be totally dead.

Am I going to get banned here?

I didn't know where to post this so I'm assuming the meta board is the place for such questions.

/pol/ refugee here. I'm going to be completely honest, I'm a Fascist. Well, Fascist in terms of 'worldview' but politically a Strasserist and here's my beef:

>-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Strasserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)

So is the person advertising this place unaware of this? Wtf do I do? Am I not welcome and is anything I say gonna get me banned? I'll be blunt, I've been a 'National Socialist' since 2012, but I was a little 's' socialist. Over the past two years, I've become a big 'S' Socialist. I used to think SJW'ism was Marxist, but it's become very clear this is a product of liberalism and capitalism. I slowly began to see the impact of capitalism and industrialisation. I'm anti-capitalist, big unionist, worker collective anti-'porky'. Is my input allowed on this board? Are threads discussing race, race-class dynamics allowed? I have multiple threads ideas that feel more comfortable here than on /pol/ but frankly, might be better on /pol/ if only to bring others over to anti-capital ideas. Or at least to oppose 'conservatism'. I wouldn't know how to not 'cloak' my views in left-rhetoric when those are my views and I hold an economically left but socially hard right perspective.

Or should I take the hint and go elsewhere? I don't know why you'd advertise this with such an odd rule which clearly tells people like us to get lost.

Also, no offense, but this interface looks like shit, is there a way to change the colours and fonts?

Genuine criticism (take it or leave)

This pol has become even worse than Reddit, and I say this as someone who previously enjoyed it and spent a great deal of time here anonymously. The quality of people, and not only posts, has sunk rock bottom. I judge this first off from their reactions to things. I (and friends who evacuated, lol) ask simple questions, not all of them entirely related to politics, maybe I have some random image, and I get fucktards either hyperfixiating on the image or becoming paranoid and aggressive, or repeating the same mantra ten timed in a row, "A thread died for this", "a thread died for this". Or during a conversation everyone is calling each other schizo/mentally handicapped (as if that's an insult), but in the same vein those doing it will say the other side is racist or fascist. Hypocrisy is a general rule on this site. Now what makes it worse than Reddit? Midwits. Reddit at least has enough members that the normie dimwit tier memesters outnumber the mediocre, average IQ jerks with a superiority complex. But here, basically everyone is a genuine midwit Lefty style social morality plays big time into what is deemed acceptable. They ask for sources but the moment I give 12 sources for an unacceptable position not widely accepted in mainstream circles, my post gets deleted. I have to download a VPN to post it at all. They are utterly convinced that their position is right, everything is a spook but somehow they are on the "good side" and I am a pseud or schizo, they are not. Point out the fuckery of these people and they'll flail their hands, assume you are part of X group, and point fingers at the other side ("your side does it too"), never admitting when they are in the wrong and changing it At least idiots will shut the fuck up and be humble, or accept that an alternative view is at least reasonable. But the worst part of it is, they are mediocre in the truest sense. No action, no lateral thinking, not even visual intelligence (judging from the answers they give to my prodding), nothing. Just sucking dick while claiming not to suck dick and being a massive hypocrite. I don't want to stirr up anything so I won't give examples, but this why I and 50 others have all but stopped talking here. We moved on. I come back and it's even worse than before.

We are optimising for a combination of retweets, likes (which serve as pseudo-retweets) and profile clickthrough rates.

Blocking Chinese IPs is one of the first things you learn in website adminstration 101

How politically correct and/or incompetent do you have to be to not block all Chinese IPs which you've admitted are the main botnets in the DDoS attack? Literally nobody from China posts here other than proxies and VPNs located in China. 4chan and 2chan blocked all Chinese IPs (except Hong Kong) many years ago for DDoS reasons too. >My logs showed requests for services and URLs that had nothing to do with my server, including an awful lot of BitTorrent URLs. Checking the geolocation of the requesting IPs showed they were all inside China. As Craig's post covered – it looks a lot like there's a mis-configuration with China's state controlled firewall, and people's normal traffic is sometimes being sent to entirely the wrong servers. Almost 27Mb/s out is roughly 95 times greater than normal for that server – close to two orders of magnitude increase, and I didn't like that – I could imagine this getting worse rapidly. >As Craig discusses, there's really no option but to block everyone from China. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't using ipfw as a firewall so I couldn't follow his advice. Having finally figured out how to do this I thought I'd write a step-by-step guide assuming you've not got a firewall already set up. >Here is a screenshot of Awstats telling me that China is responsible for the second-largest volume of traffic to a certain web forum I manage. This is just for January 2015. >I also happen to know that 99% of all brute force user password hack attempts are from Chinese IP addresses. Approximately 50 to 100 brute force attempts at ‘guessing’ the passwords to legitimate user names comes from Chinese IP addresses every day on this site. >The difference between 1.9 million pages and 134,000 pages is pretty large, and 1.86GB of bandwidth is not the end of the world. But when I know that 99% of it is bogus, bots, brute force hacks, vulnerability scanners, and web crawlers, then why wouldn’t I just block China from accessing my site? >We block China, Russia and Ukraine from our main websites. The majority of attempted attacks were identified as coming from those countries. Also crawlers from those countries like Yandex and Sogu were hitting us hundreds of thousands of times per day or more - not obeying robots.txt most of the time and just costing us a bunch of money for nearly zero return traffic. It was an easy decision to make. >It's a low effort, ham-fisted way of mitigating security threats. It's not very effective, but it does cut down on log spam. >By blocking Russia and China we eliminated over 99% of our failed authentication attempts. That seems effective to me. >I gotta say, the majority of hack attempt on our WHM server are from China still >Eh, of the top 10 IPs attempting brute force SSH in my logs currently, China is two and Russia is one of them. I feel like it does remove some of the spam, but not nearly as much as you'd think anymore. >At the firewall I block China, Russia and half dozen other IP ranges from countries that I see malicious traffic from. Users have never complained or noticed. If not stopping a targeted attack by it does help with low hanging fruit. >Russia and China are high on our malware and phishing. >China are the most obvious ones. Usually don't even hide they are "testing" usernames and passwords. IPs and organizations from Russia and middle east usually only turn up after some digging. >My FTP DMZ Server used to get hammered for access from China, it had no DNS name out there, only a few clients who knew the IP address could access it. >Yeah, if you go on r/sysadmin, you'll see mentions of how some will block entire IP blocks from Russia and China because of malicious requests. >We currently use cloud flare and block all Chinese traffic. It's very heavy handed but inconveniencing a few genuine visitors to deal with the onslaught was well worth it for us. Originally we had tried quite a few rules inside robots.txt to stop the bots and also some inside htaccess, but the cloud flare solution was easiest and most effective option for us >There's three ways to tackle this. As /u/PoorLummox mentioned you can use Cloudflare and block china. Alternatively, if you use nginx, you can install / run the geoip plugin and block either all requests or just POST requests. The final way is you can install csf firewall and there's a section that allows you to block countries by using the two letter ISO code. Each method has it's pro's and con's depending exactly what you want to achieve.

Can we talk about how counter-intuitive the set-up of bunkerchan is?

Guys, something needs to change. After /trash/ was yeeted from the board for arbitrary and unwise reasons, /IG/ basically turned into /trash/ because all other boards are dead and noone want's to post there. Hell /IG/ turned into /mu/ for a little while because /hobby/ is fucking dead and noone wants to post there. Don't believe me? Look at the fucking thread. This board needs generals where people can actually except to get some responses and feedback on the stuff they do. >People can just go to other boards Yeah but they don't, cuz they're dead. Look at how /IG/ turned into /mu/, that's how much of a hassle it is to post on other boards, let alone dead boards. >Those generals would take up space What, valuable space taken up by threads such as: CORN MAN BAD-thread, which rightly would belong on /GET/ or whereever trash went? >>1003375 Why explore space-thread, which one easily could argue belongs on /edu/ >>976189 A fucking joke-thread on Nixon >>1003770 What quality are we preseving by effectively banning all disscussion on hobbies, tv and games?

Okay, it's well and good that you guy don't wanna delete the comatose boards that are not /leftypol/, but for god's sake, stop this over-moderation of what content belongs on the only non-dead board, because it makes the chan as a whole much worse and much more limited in terms of content.

Important question about Marxist Theory and Moderation on Bunkerchan

Go ahead and ban me mods, won't try to ban evade. I'm here to help you guys Should Marxist spaces not be arranged and moderated according to Marxian principles? Considering how this vital thread: >>>/gulag/7719 Was yeeted from this board where the masses could participate and willfully moved to a place where as few people could participate in the organizational principles of Bunkerchan, is that not then a breach in the principles of democracy and the mass-line? What theorectical principles or theory would justify having as few people as possible participate in the conversation? Is that a theoretical framewaork you agree with? If not, can we say that the praxis of the bunkerchan moderation team is currently not conforming to best marxist practices and must be criticized on their theoretical foundation?

A Proposal for the Reorganization of Bunkerchan

In the wake of a new board, /leftyb/, being proposed, I have a proposal for an alternative reorganization of bunkerchan. It appears that the volunteers and the admins intent to create a space in which general shitposting is possible. While it is commendable that they want to create such spaces, I think the best way to achieve this is to revisit how this chan is organized. I therefore propose the introduction of The General Plan THE GENERAL PLAN The general plan rids us of all other boards on bunkerchan, except /GET/, /ref/ (our traditional allies of special status) and /gulag/. The plan is then to instead of different boards have a general thread for each board, so that we have a cyclical /hobby/, /tech/, /edu/ ect. THE REASONING I operate fundementally under the assumption that the boards are created because the mods want to give these categories special status, and promote them over general shitposting/baitposting. HOWEVER, counterintuitively, this system and effort to grant the boards special status, it ends up giving them lesser status than general posting. Few people actually venture outside the /leftypol/ board, especially because the other boards do not meet the minimum sustainable populations to maintain an active board-community. This is important to make note of. Currently, Bunkerchan as a whole is not chan-sized, but board-sized, which means that only /leftypol/ (and to some degree /GET/) get enough activity to be actual organic, thriving communities. Note picture related, to see the traffic on other boards. This means that general shitposting/baitposting will get more attention than the average thread on any other board than leftypol. This in turn has the paradoxial effect of achieving the exact opposite of the original goal, namely to grant these boards special status. Therefore, in order to diversify the kind of discussion and content available on bunkerchan, we need not to expand but rather paradoxically to contract, until such a time as we have enough of a user-base as to warrant self-contained organic thriving boards. I am posting this on /leftypol/ for general awareness, but I am also posting it on /gulag/. I thank you for your patience and for entertaining this idea. this is not a flood

bunkerchan moderation

>inb4 move this to /gulag/ this has been a long time coming Mods, please unban the wojak script. I know it can be annoying but with the addition of the porky images to the wojak script its a great way to reply to pol/yps etc. I don't understand what the rationale is for banning the wojak script on bunkerchan, users should be free to post what they want unless its fashspam. TBH i've been very unsatisfied with the way bunkerchan is run. The users are what make it what it is, but every decision on moderation is made in some smoke filled room on irc/riot where the userbase is not consulted or even polled using strawpoll or whatever. The recent banning of the wojakscript, in addition to some of the overzealous anchoring of threads which discourages shitposting and memery. While Old BO is long gone, the impetus behind her moderation style is still there which is to ban anything that smells like fun and/or shitposting, every thread has to be some revleft-style serious theory thread or at least a prompt on current events. The decline of leftypol and leftypol's influence on the broader online left since 2018 is a direct result of this culture, as it disincentivizes shitposting, since 2018 leftypol has hardly created any memes at all, with the possible exception of a few cybercom memes. The meme culture is even more derivative of nu/pol/ than before. You can say this is partly the result of the userbase getting older but still. Leftypol is a very unique space on the online left since every other place is a reddit/twitter idpozzed hugbox where no fun is allowed. I like imageboards and the memes they produce and I also like having a place to discuss left wing politics which is not filled with radlibs and doesn't require me to make an account. It's unfortunate that bunkerchan doesn't really have an alternative that users can go, since is now merged in and GETchan is not widely used. Additionally there are the longstanding technical problems with scaling and the lynxchan board software which prevents the site's userbase from growing much faster and the incredibly slow progress on gochan. I'm sure every From a technical perspective the gochan codebase is frankly a mess, and it's pretty difficult to even get running if you download the source code. IMO the thing is a flaming shitpile and aside from certain things (like the ERD/database schema) that should be kept, it should probably be rewritten, possibly even in another framework or even other language. It's unclear that golang is the best language to write an imageboard in, but i digress. Again, these are all problems that have been widely known but although 75%+ of people here complain about it no one really cares enough to do anything else, as seen by the failure of (when it was an imageboard) which just became filled with incels and other schizos that got banned. Since no real alternative can be made the best that can be done is to beg the jannies to do their jobs and actually make leftypol a better place /rant

We need a board solely for the discussion of radlib idpol. Not one in favor of it, but a board where everyone can complain about it. That way leftypol can remain free of discussions about trannies and focus on class while when the mood strikes they can go to the anti radlib board to complain about ethots, trannies, and other forms of radlib idpol. I don't why a containment board is such a hard thing to consider.

Since the vote to create /idpol/ as containment failed, what about an alternative? What about a board for containing reddit (and other) idiocy? This can be inclusive of idpol baiting but also general ignorance toward socialism that you would expect from a redditfugee? I don't think this should merely be a containment board, however. Since they are more numerous than the existing /leftypol/, bunkerchan, and GETchan communities, we would need to actively re-educate them or risk the containment board overwhelming the rest of the site. Quarantining these posters for ideological decontamination and re-education would also more broadly free up the main board(s) to not be bogged down by these discussions so much, and it could help manage site growth by creating a decontamination chamber instead of merely a containment one.

leftypol > Reddit

leftypol: - few rules - not really editorialised - minarchist mod style - dissent allowed, but sectarianism discouraged Reddit: - more rules than stars in our galaxy - de facto publisher since it is so editoralised - massive mod government that controls speech and thought - dissent banned, but sectarianism encouraged Reddit is a cancer on the anglophone left and that the world will be a better place when they go bankrupt like MySpace. I'm starting to wonder how /leftypol/ is paid for, but it's obviously from some form of user donation. State funding (WeChat) or user funding (Mastodon, Lynx Project, Matrix) is pro-leftist. Pink/greenwashed corporate social media is the supreme evil. It's a meme cave where succdems watch the shadows of real leftism and waste time and money on the politics of reformism. Fuck Reddit!

The need for regional boards in Bunkerchan for the world communist movement.

(Translated from a post by another anon in /ref/) Right now, as the boards are organized in Bunkerchan, there is: >>>/Leftypol/, where people go to talk about leftist topics in general. That is, they go there to discuss theory and praxis in general terms, to discuss the socialist and anarchist experiments of the past (The USSR, the Iron Curtain countries, the Spanish civil war, Chile) and today (The Confederalists of Rojava, the dengists in China, Bolivarian Venezuela, Cuba, etc). >>>/GET/ is basically its own thing, it is not to discuss socialist theory, it is basically the resting room, the cafe or the Bunkerchan bar, you go there to shitpost or post things that do not concern the socialist movement. You go there to have fun, not to cultivate yourself. >>>/hobby/ >>>/games/ >>>/roulette/ And the rest are just boards for, well, hobbies and whatever comes out in Roulette that day. Here I also add >>>/gulag/ because it does not serve for Marxism, but serves to meta discussion about the site. >>> /REF/, belonging to the GETchan branch within Bunkerchan. In theory, it serves so that there can be respective threads for each nationality, well, better said for each language, taking into account that the /hispa/ thread corresponds to all the Spanish-speaking countries, all of which have different problems and different conditions , which makes the thread quite difficult to follow. At the same time, being inside the /GET/ field makes your threads become difficult terrain to walk on because there really is no serious discussion. /REF/ is organized to fool around with a little flag when you post, things like the thread of the local cuisine or the thread to learn languages ​​go as a custom suit for /REF/, but a speaking thread Hispanic, or a German-speaking thread, apart from shitposting, really do not have any use apart of that. And that's where we get at the topic at hand, why it is necessary to make regional boards for each region, or at least, for each anguage. tell from this very thread (/hispa/), how many communist parties have you joined, what is the situation in your own country, and so on. At most you will have the knowledge of an average, normal and ordinary communist, of your nation, or even less, because we focus on /leftypol/, we focus on communist theory, instead of focusing on the situation in our own countries and the events that occur in them. We can see such a thing, as a communist movement develops, within it /leftypol/ for the Yankees. The gringos, being so many on the Internet, almost make the American question central and /leftypol/ becomes /burger/ without we realizing it, since with so many Americans, the US becomes, by default, the navel of the world, both Americans and those who are not, are inadvertently participating in /burger/, not / leftypol/. Because of this, there needs to be boards that serve as local meeting places, for communists belonging to a region or a language. Spanish Communists should focus on Spanish problems, not post in English on how Americans should solve their own problems. Well, you can do both, and in fact you must, the problem is that you are not doing the first, while you are only doing the second. Another problem with the current organization of the boards is their language. Here everyone speaks in the lingua franca, this being English, but as we can corroborate, not everyone knows English. While learning English, at least in bunkerchan, is fundamental, the English barrier is a filter through which only those who know not only how to read, but also write English without making a fool of themselves can pass. I have often had to write posts in / leftypol / with the post window on one side and the google translator on the other because I don't have as much English vocabulary as I would like. That is why it is necessary for Bunkerchan to start developing boards for, at least, different languages. Of course, not all languages ​​will be there, but those that are more active, such as a board for the Spanish community, the German community or the British community. I know that there are at least 3 guys who are French, so there would also be an excuse to make a /baguette/ for the gabachos. If we want to grow as a network and as a communist movement on the web, we need to develop regional boards, language boards, for socialism and for Marxism. Thanks for coming to my Ted-Talk.

bear's solution to serve space

Bunkerchan was down for a while on 3/29/20, and while it was down, I was talking to a fellow fa/GET/ on how to fix the situation. I came up with this solution. Much like Margret Thatcher, we're going to need to do some austerity. Move any threads like people like, but are kinda slow burner (EX: /dprk/ , /prc/) and put them into a less active board, /ref/ being a perfect example, so that they don't die as easily. Then cut leftypol's page count by half to have more space in the servers. While you're at it, also move all country specific thread to /ref/ as it seems more appropriate the it would be there, as /ref/ is kinda like Bunkerchan's /int/ anyway **and would boost activity in that board, which may lead to more activity, see this thread >>321740** This is what i believe y'all should consider for this to not happen again, cause I don't want to see anything about topology anymore

The nature of money, capital, and capitalism

<The following is a continuing discussion between a leftcom and a nazbol that began in the moderation thread on /leftypol/. Outside contributions/shit-flinging are welcome. <Quoth the nazbol: >In regard to the question of how a state pays for things That wasnt the question. What is money? What is legal tender?How does/dit it come into being and what makes it accepted? >Taxes have to come first Chicken and egg >So post-structuralist No. Perhaps this is a semantic problem.By capital,in this context,I'm specifically referring to the form of capital known as currency,hard currency,money and legal tender. >a notion bostered by the functioning of the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency Indeed and this is enabled by OIL payments only being accepted in US dollars backed up by the might of the US military. However the function can still operate independently of those considerations within the context of an independent sovereign nation state with it's own currency. >That describes the present economic reality pretty damn well That IS the current reality. But it is a reality created and maintained by arbitrary state fiat.It is not some eternal law or necessary requirement for an economy.Ultimately it is a construct of vested interests in the form of powerful private banking concerns who have been monopolising this system from circa 1750 >The key to understanding why it matters so little Quite the contrary.It is of supreme importance. >It's still labor, even if it is labor of a different kind. Ultimately I agree - but surplus value is being sucked away by financial concerns - not by the functioning of private business/corps/retailers etc in the real economy (as marxists maintain) but by the financial oligarchs who create,maintain,monopolise and dominate the creation and distribution of the monetary system/currency. >The hell it does. The amount of blatant ignorance about money/currency among economists etc is breathtaking - it's probably by design.Both austrians and marxists are still bleating on about bartering chickens to explain the evolution of currency. <The leftcom's retort will be written after he has finished exchanging his labor-power for the means of subsistence for the day.

Can you explain what is "willfully bad" or whatever about my reading of OTJQ? Any reasonable reading of that text will is that it is MORE antisemitic than what I argue for in /edu/511 This is the second time I have been banned for being disparaging towards Jews. The first time was for saying the hosts of Chapo had "whiny jew voices". After that time I made a /gulag/ thread in which I may have said that I am not an antisemite, and at that time I didn't consider myself one. I have been taking Marx's work on this subject more seriously lately though and I would admit that this does make me an antisemite. I still don't think I am nearly as antisemitic as Marx was though, and Marx wasn't nearly as antisemitic as Proudhon or Bakunin. What rule did I violate exactly? I didn't go so far as to claim that the Jews have a worldly "essence". Why is this such a sensitive topic for the mods here? Are people banned for using slurs against black or attacking Christianity? What is so special about the Jews that they are beyond criticism?

Haven't you idiots yet realized not everyone is a 300lb gorilla glued to a chair staring at a monitor? Some people have, idk, phones and iPads? Some people have to, idk, make threads only on their phones because whatever fucking idiot designed this website made it impossible to post files on iPads (and I don't browse on my phone). Idc if you ban both IPs for a week, but till May is stupid as fuck Putting this here because the stupid ass auto appeal message only shows up once and basically without warning

Why do my posts linking to my boomer remover video keep getting deleted in the e-celeb trash thread? I hate the whole e-celeb thing to but I'm tryna make content that other members of the community will enjoy. I wasn't aware that this kind of self-promotion was against the rules, and if you're gonna delete my posts can you at least tell me why they are being deleted?

Apparently I'm a spammer

I haven't posted on leftypol in years - I pretty much just lurk most the time. Yesterday I was replying to a thread on reparations when it was deleted, so I made my own to keep the conversation going (and to put up my reply, how vain). Anyways, after replying a few more times to various anons, I got a message stating "Your IP was recognized as a know spammer." Idk what this is supposed to mean, like if I'm now banned or something, but all I was doing was talking to people about a topic that may be seen as idpol related. To be clear, I never supported reparations in any of my posts, and pretty much just talked about the conditions of black Americans and the difficulties that might arise concerning a broader revolutionary strategy. At any rate, it seemed to be a productive conversation, but now I can't post in my own thread cus Im apparently a spammer. To be clear, I wasn't supporting idpol, but asking how class solidarity could be formed. What do?

Why don't the users elect and recall mods?

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.

Thread Deletions and Acceptable Topics

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.

New boards

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/. 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.

Upgrade to 2.3

Bunkerchan has upgraded to lynxchan version 2.3 New features: - Not going down from captcha attacks, hopefully - Last post view - Logs per board - Some mod shit like being able to give warnings instead of bans, better history overview, etc Bug fixes: Fixed anchor plugin to actually import neccecary values from the backend, rather than just crashing the website. Oops.

The default css

What is bunkerchans opinion of the default css?

Personally I believe that Yotsuba should be the default css because:
-Yotsuba is already the default of /GET/.
-It used to be the default of /leftypol/ on 8chan.
-The current default can scare new people off.

Proposal for merger of /dead/, /tech/, and /e/ into single /hobby/ or /leftyhobby/ board

Hello all, I think with the possible relaunch of 8chankun or whatever they're calling that honeypot now, we should try to create a dedicated hobbyist board so that people can discuss non-political stuff with their comrades without it all being shitted up by qboomers and so on.

The reason I support merging the existing boards is due to a lack of traffic and users making real discussion impractical. In addition some people feel a bit weird about using the boards and intruding on the existing community so I feel it might be better to have a fresh start for everyone.

However, this is just my idea and I am open to people's comments about it, please use this topic to discuss the issue and not the satellite topics I will post on the relevant boards (and /leftypol/).

R: 9 / I: 3 / P: 23

Nothing changes

Well, i guess the preposal to consolidate meta into gulag has failed. That kinda disappoints me. It appears like everything is just kinda at a grid lock right now. I don't understand the necessity of having two or even three threads for discussion about something we have a whole board for.
It seems totally redundant. Maybe I am just old and have a different idea of what an imageboard is compared to users who came from 8chan? I don't know.

At any rate I guess that is the way things go. Better luck next time.

Brainstorming Board Concepts

You can only make really short posts, like three words.
Every OP must have an image that is more vertical than horizontal, perhaps with some specified minimum ratio. Likewise any other picture posted must be that way.
Pics with a very low filesize limit.
Fastfood and fastfood-related memes.
British politics, left and conservative and pretty much anything goes aside from 1. doxing and 2. advocating for military intervention and regime change abroad.
Friends of trains (tren is Spanish and fren is bad English). Discussion about train photos, train concepts, model trains, train simulators and using trains IRL.
Only a bot makes OPs, three a day, all bumplocked. The OPs are taken from reddit's /todayilearned/, the reddit homepage, and a random subreddit not in reddit's top bar. Screencapped/archived so you don't actually have to visit reddit.
Sophisticated discussion about the most profound philosophy in world history.
Tasteful and artistic SFW pictures of behinds.
If /wankr/ is too intellectual for you. This only allows numbers and emojis (writing words with emojis is considered cheating and results in ban).

Rotating consels

What if rather than having a stagnating seat of moderating powers we had a rotating seat of staff members? For example every few months, years, what have you, we rotate mods from the mods staff? Wouldn't that make more sense than having just a bunch of mods sitting on power?

It could be done democratically

Extraordinary Commission For Bunker Affaires



Owing to the extremely unfavorable conditions of our home board, our bunker home is temporarily designated as the general centre for the public discussion of any and all affaires pertaining to the state and future of /leftypol/. This thread will serve as thread plenipotentiary for all debates and discussions on potentially returning to our home board or whether to begin re-congealing to remain here permanently.

Please speak your mind openly on the matter of the concerns you have for the board. We are at a critical juncture in our history, where we may affect a great good and benefit the stature and health of online leftist discussion.

This will also serve as a sign of redoubled commitment on the part of the present moderation team as to our goals of moderation reform and development. Any ideas on the policies, involvement of the public, or any generalities concerning the nature of our present state of emergency moderation, and future moderation, should be posted here!

As a reminder:

(Tentative, subject to further codification)

-post cuckshit, "commies BTFO," or any of that kind of shit
-post any porn depicting underage (including drawings)
-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Strasserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)
-incite specific acts of terrorism or similar acts (use your head, don't act like a fed)

-be respectful, ask questions, and know your place if you're a reactionary
-feel free to flame, shitpost, and be sectarian if you are a leftist (just keep it somewhat within reason)

We have decided to embark on a policy of more transparency over rules and our decisions about moderation. Our decisions will be posted here and below.

29/07/19: More glasnost can be expected (don't worry, no perestroika on the horizon). We have decided that we will ease up a bit on bans and moderation for the foreseeable future as /pol/ intrusion is not really a problem at this moment.
We will even allow reactionary posters who are not causing too much trouble to possibly attract converts and boost our numbers. Spamming or super disingenuous arguing is still liable to be punished.
In addition, we have decided to police opinions less in general - have agreed that the recent bans over China and anti-immigration were unfair (whether we agree with those opinions or not) and will endeavour to allow open dialog to flourish. Thank you for your patience.

GETchan press release
>GETchan-Bunkerchan merger confirmed! This weekend we will be moving /GET/ and /ref/ over to Bunkerchan, where we will decide on a new name for the site. GETchan will still exist, but as a subdivision of the new site. The Bunkerchan staff will have their boards and we will have ours. As a compromise, our /pol/ board will not be moved over and they will retain control over the political boards. In turn, they will delete /dprk/, their random board, and /GET/ will be the sole random board. This is a huge step forward for both chans!
