Visual Guide for New Anons https://bunkerchan.xyz/.media/e7c5eab9a4fa215d646e6c8aaee497ef-imagepng.png Do not put your e-mail in the e-mail field First, Please read this OP. Since we're leftists, there shouldn't be many differences ideologically, but our community has its own jargon and idiosyncrasies which might be jarring to outsiders. Second, although we allow slurs, we are anti-bigotry and it will not be tolerated. Thirdly, the board has an anti-idpol rule. Meaning that discussion of idpol topics is not allowed. There is some flexibility. Where that flexibility is also requires some time to get the feel of it. Fourthly, don't put anything in the name, or email fields.

>>1233489 lol what a simp
>>1233495 it's not an investment if you actually enjoy their company (outside of secs)
>>1232360 sex workers don't rule shit incel they are literally pimped by corporations
>>1291790 Based corporations pimping the femoids
>>1290983 Either everyone involved are a bunch of immature losers with no social skills or the feds are ruining some obscure board that no one cares about. I’m guessing it’s the former.
Where can we follow development of this and the new site?
Ok guys I'm still reading some basic stuff but I was just wondering how the theory of value can still apply today given that we don't use commodity based currency? I've tried googling it but I can't seem to understand it
>>1293060 is this site abandoned? why is nobody responding??
>>1293081 >>1293060 >>1292765 New update here. https://bunkerchan.xyz/leftypol/res/1293125.html#q1293125 Apologies for the wait, have been busing setting up server and wageslaving.

>>668788 How did Bezos get rich? did he have rich parents?
>>1293483 His family owned a 25,000 acre ranch in Texas, his grandfather was the director of the Atomic Energy Commission, and his step-father was an Exxon engineer who paid his way through Princeton. Then he was one of the only survivors of the dot com bubble collapse. Bezos was a petit-porky who was made into a mega-porky by otherworldly good fortune.
>>1293639 Every fucking time
>>1293639 this is blatantly retarded, putting all his achievements on his family. from his wikipedia: >In 1986, he graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University with a 4.2 GPA and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree (B.S.E.) in electrical engineering and computer science; he was also a member of Phi Beta Kappa.... After Bezos graduated from Princeton University in 1986, he was offered jobs at Intel, Bell Labs, and Andersen Consulting. He transitioned into the banking industry when he became a product manager at Bankers Trust. He worked there from 1988 to 1990. He then joined D. E. Shaw & Co, a newly founded hedge fund with a strong emphasis on mathematical modelling in 1990 and worked there until 1994. Bezos became D. E. Shaw's fourth senior vice-president at the age of 30 which is a pretty solid profile from a STEM perspective, which points to some serious academic smarts. I hate this cope about about how any porky becomes rich only because of the fanny he popped out of, and really is the worst possible critique of capitalism- makes it a politics of envy and inferiority.
>>1293848 You don't think the home life and education opportunities he was afforded given his family background played into those achievements at all?
>>1293858 yes, but say even under socialism, he would be given the same platform that would lead him into some high academic status. also, not every rich person has a high intellectual capacity (cf. Trump/Musk), there are some inherent advantages and disadvantages a person has regardless of class and race. The revolution's job is not to paper over these "inequalities", merely the social and political ones tl;dr: bezos would be bezos even under socialism
>>1293864 >tl;dr: bezos would be bezos even under socialism The fuck does that even mean?
>>1293848 Maybe he would have been successful, but not what he is today if he went to state schools. Not having to work while in college helps keep focus. Also who is to say that connections through family didn't contribute to early jobs. You are glazing over small but important details.
>>1293864 He would still be smart he wouldn't own thousands of slaves and command over their lives.
>>1294467 Boris Abramovich Berezovsky was born in 1946, in Moscow, to Abram Markovich Berezovsky (1911–1979),[25] a Jewish civil engineer in construction works,[26][27] and his wife, Anna Aleksandrovna Gelman (22 November 1923 – 3 September 2013).[28] He studied applied mathematics, receiving his doctorate in 1983.[29] After graduating from the Moscow Forestry Engineering Institute in 1968, Berezovsky worked as an engineer from 1969 till 1987, serving as assistant research officer, research officer and finally the head of a department in the Institute of Control Sciences of the USSR Academy of Sciences.[30] Berezovsky conducted research on optimization and control theory, publishing 16 books and articles between 1975 and 1989.
yo if there are going to be three different leftypols (bunkerchan, .org, .su) then theres no point in going to any of these, ive better things to do than waste my time on these boards
>>1294507 There will not be three different /leftypol/s bunkerchan is simply moving to a new domain. See https://bunkerchan.xyz/leftypol/res/1294512.html#q1294512
>>1294507 This is the problem with site faggotry, once you hit more than 2 major board splits it's over. At the very least other people on other imageboards cooperate hard with one another to post across their circles, but with /leftypol/ there is a very limited interest in leftism and once you hit having a website and not a board you immediately come at risk of losing marketability, and the niche factor. /leftypol/ should have arguably moved most of the user base to literally anywhere, moe, smug, zzz, sushi, wherever, while keeping this place as back up as it's purpose originally was.
>>1295000 This isn't another split nimrod, the top level domain is changing. This board has twice the PPH of .ogre and the idea that post quality has gone down is just a exjanny meme. Fuck off with this FUD.

>>1295419 >Twice the PPH <8 PPH 2 days ago
>>1295435 <8 PPH 2 days ago Dafaq are you talking about. This board has mostly burgers so when it's night time there the PPH dips which all the .ogres circle jerk about endlessly. If .ogre really has so many more people why don't you go there. I've been visiting .ogre all through the split and you guys talk waaaaaaaay more about bunkerchan than visa versa, not exactly a sign of site and community that's soooo much better. If it weren't for exjannies constantly spamming about their drama that no one gives a fuck about, this site would never talk about the split at all.
>>1295440 Lol I am there I just like to check in on your little cult every now and then lol
>>1295435 >8 PPH 2 days ago It's 50 PPH now. And that's low, it's usually 70+ during prime time. It's low on the weekends and night because bunkerchads are out partying and having sex.
>>1295451 crying-wojack-wearing-smug-wojack-mask.jpg
>>1295469 You've by no means hit a nerve. You guys nuked the boards, that's why no one trusts you.
>>1295476 History has absolved watermellon. More nuking is in order. END THE SPLIT!
>>1295480 Kek, couldn't hold your spaghetti even long enough to pretend you care about the community. You're all STILL not sorry for that.
>>1295484 >ban >respond with an epic burn >banned user doesn't respond >i win
>>1295486 You may be surprised to find out that the old mods did this too including a healthy soyjack circle jerk afterward
>>1295486 You showed that you still all want to nuke the boards just to get your way. That's why you lost.
Follow this twitter for updates on /leftypol/ and bunkerchan. Will also post funny screenshots and shit. https://twitter.com/bunkerchanLP
>>1295532 when is the new site coming up?
>>1295532 will the site be backed up, or are we starting from new? who will be programming the new site?
>>1295567 (me) >>1295568 (me) will it use the same software? will it have the same themes available?
>>1295567 Early tomorrow >>1295568 It will be using the same database so posts will carry over. We will be running on lynxchan 2.5, which is several updates ahead of where bunkerchan is rn. Right now it's just me with the support of StephenLynx (in setting the site up), and the former owner of 6chan - we will likely establish a patreon in the near future to pay for future webdev. >>1295569 It will still be lynxchan with pretty much the same front end. The themes are the same.
>>1295573 forgot role signature
Turned on captcha for posts due to spam.
>>1296802 Turned off for now, it looks like cloud flair is handling it now

I'm getting some sort of error at the bottom of pages
Are you guys aware webms are broken right now?
>>1297247 Videos are working now
>>1297731 mp4 is working now, webm is not.
>>1298155 Pinktextorangetext doesn't work anymore >greentext is nice <but one other thing to alternate is even nicer Plz fix Also, when fixing this, some longstanding bugs about greentext/orangetext breaking with certain leading characters should also hopefully be fixed.
>>1298155 Ok, webm should be good now - was an issue with the thumbnails >>1298270 unfortunately, the orangetext add on we used to use is outdated, we'd need to create a new one from scratch.
