Please post features for the roadmap here. Off topic and completed features will be deleted. Duplicate posts will be removed. Volunteer demands get priority and order of execution depends on the usefulness the time cost and my personal motivation. Please be as complete as possibly in a feature request.

Your feature request will be implemented there if they are chosen. I only respond to reject or ask for clarifications on posts. If I do not respond consider your report accepted and on the to do list. This keeps the thread short and concise. .t codemonkey admin

Official Thread For Discussion Of Moderator Votes Comrade 08/26/2019 (Mon) 02:58:59 No. 1928 [Reply] [Last]
Hello, this is a topic that is intended for feedback on matters currently up for vote among the mod staff for all users. I will also include this info on /leftypol/ in case it is missed but for all you gulag-watchers, here it is. Here are the matters currently up for vote;

FAST TRACK VOTE: It is proposed that the pinned reading list topic and the /NEW/ topic on leftypol should be merged into one FAQ pinned thread as was present on the old leftypol, since we are now out of the transitionary period, and to reduce the number of pinned threads. This new thread would give advice for new members and board conduct as well as the reading list. VOTING WILL CLOSE 4AM UTC 27/08

LONG VOTE: It is proposed that Bunkerchan should, ONCE TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE, create a ban list that is publicly viewable that includes the name of the moderator who issued the ban as well as the details of the post itself, so that users can hold their staff to account more effectively. Obviously, no identifying info or IPs should be publicly visible besides vol name. VOTING WILL CLOSE 4AM UTC 29/08

LONG VOTE: It is proposed that voting in this channel on issues which only affect one board (or not all boards) should be limited to only the staff members who administrate those board/s. If you think that all moderators of the site should vote on all proposals, please vote thumbs down to this proposal. VOTING WILL CLOSE IN 72 HOURS AT 3AM UTC 29/08

Mod Vote - Critical - We should recruit mods to fill the positions left empty. Vote ends UTC 09:00 20/05/2020.
I'm starting to think that liberals are starting to infect /leftypol/ and become the ban-happy mods. If the mods are not the liberals themselves, they cave into the demands of the liberals. Eg. >Liberal: "ahh that guy discussed arranged marriages! HEZ AN INC*L" >Mod: "oh fuck" *swings ban hammer* I do understand the mods' intention to stop the inc*l menace, but now, they seem to believe any word from liberals. Moderators are a reactionary concept anyway.

>The Debut EP from DJ Uchuu. Featuring a mix of different sounds. From the dark disco sounding 'Darkness at the Disco' to the Boards of Canada-esque 'Unconscious Transmissions', Or the vaporwave mallsoft sounding '「 A r n d a l e 98 」'. Each song is a different flavour

When will /games/ get it's righteous place on the top bar?
>>4815 We have to wait for Space to push through the changes, apologies for the inconvenience.
Games aren't real. Drop your pants
It's there in the Bunkerchan Frontend, it just takes a million years to update for some reason.
Can I report a bug? /games/ shows up on the top bar when you're in the catalog or board index, but when you're in a thread it disappears (the exception being the thread is on /games/)

The mods should only delete what breaks the rules. Stop deleting larouce. Stop giving bans to anyone whos ideology you personally don't like. The left is a big place with a lot of history it can't all be eurocoms and vulgar MLism.

>>4809 I posted this in the /leftypol/ moderator thread but I had a feeling someone might be mentioning it in /gulag/ too so I came over here. I just wanted to give an example of how many random idpol, troll, Sakai and anti-Sakai threads we have up at any given time. I think one thread for this topic would be fine, but this is a lot of bullshit to be dealing with.
More focus on moderating the threads and less on people's takes on shit would be better. Lots of low effort threads tend to be made, it kills too much of the other stuff.

The nature of money, capital, and capitalism Comrade 05/15/2020 (Fri) 18:43:02 No. 4834 [Reply] [Last]
<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.

>>4858 Part Jesus, look at all the words >Eternal growth is only demanded by the current govt+corp+finance complex. When capital does not grow capital does not exist. That is what happens when a depression occurs. There ceases to be a sufficient expectation of a return on investments, so investors stop investing. Investment resumes in increments as the weaker porkies get culled. Then the cycle begins again. A stoppage of growth is just a depression. >Why insist on reifying the current mode as some holy eternal law.It isnt. Things have properties. Growth is a definitive property of capital. M becomes M'. Third-positionists want to have social production without capital, but the engine that moves social production is capital. That does not have to be the case, but when capital is removed from the formula something has to takes its place. Investors do not invest without expectation of a return. What makes investors invest if doing so does not benefit them? My solution: have no investors at all and produce for use. >Their analysis is sound and sometimes accurate - but their models still assume gold backed ie limited currency What have they gotten right? I cannot help remembering Greenspan being completely befuddled when the bubbles burst. >Soviet's best mathematicians couldnt figure it out. Where does this myth come from? Kantrovich did it in 1939. >Give me a synopsis of cockshot. Cockshott cited Kantrovich's arithmetical method based on production outputs and combined it with Dantzig's simplex method to scale it up infinitely. It is all based upon the point that money is not the only scaling objective function out there. I will include the pamphlet in case you are interested. I am not an advocate of central planning, being a leftcom, but Cockshott makes a convincing case for its plausability. >Give my regards to the lady of the manor squire. I'm hitting the sack.Drunk as a lord. Til the morrow May your headache be light and your bedroom dark. >Appreciate the chance for sincere debate like civilised grown ups. It is both pleasant and unusual to talk with someone here about economics and not have it turn into a memefest two posts in. God, the MLs can cite Lenin back and forth, but once the subject turns to the M-C-M' cycle in Capital and its relation to the state it's all "anarkiddy" and "imperialist."
>>4857 >Remember that the state is a construct, not a thinking, acting entity So is capital.The rules you ascribe to it are a construct too and pur ideology.Capital to marxists is some type of gnostic demiurge with dialectical materialism providing the role of the saviour logos acting throughout history. The state is power over a defined geographical region and population.The question is who/what controls that power.Currently it is management elites who are largely under the thumb of extant capitalism. The question is how to get the right elite in power,preferably in several core western states at the same time ,to challenge global capital and knock it down a peg or 200. >the bureaucrats still had to extract surplus-value from workers This fixation on extraction of surplus value as inherently exploitative clouds all your thinking. Qualitative distinctions matter. >They were still beholden to capital and its inherent contradictions Capital? in what sense? Extraction of surplus value? No contradiction there outside the current capitalist system. >liberals of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century They did so to protect capitalism as we know it - not to castrate it and domesticate it as is my intent.They did nothing else which is required. >How does one provide increasingly large quantities of start-up capital to such inefficient entities with any hope of recouperation Currently SMEs are 80% of the uk economy.No special govt funding is even required.What is required is the evisceration of big porkies ie breaking up monopolies,transnationals and eliminating parasitical privateer finaniers by aforementioned nationalisation of the financial industries - on a pan-national level. >first economic downturn There will be no further downturns after pan-national autarkic control of finance.The "business cycle" is a product of the current govt-corp-finance complex aka extant capitalism - which is an arbitrary construct >This sounds a lot like the British and American economic system of the early-eighteenth century when the factory system was still young. The american system yes.Some similarities.That was back when americans were still wise to the banking oligarchies and their games.

Biology Comrade 05/16/2020 (Sat) 21:02:29 No. 4841 [Reply] [Last]
Where should I post a thread discussing biological subspecies and strain? I'm having a lot of questions reading up on recent advances in human genetics and would like to discuss the topic collaboratively with you guys, in hopes of also countering some alt-right memetic talking points that are going around online ("dog races" argument, which is very packed with issues). At first I wanted to post it on /leftypol/, but I know how that turned out historically. Maybe /edu/ would be better? I want to at least give you guys a word of it before I make it, so it doesn't come as a shock or seem ulterior. Is it okay? Basically, this is intended to be anti-racist, but mostly just addressing human biology and contemporary genetic/biological research.
>>4841 >but mostly just addressing human biology and contemporary genetic/biological research from the lens of dialectical materialism*.
I'll basically name the thread human biology, start with a paragraph of non-controversial foundations that are quite important but often missed(?), like pointing out that homo sapiens-sapiens is a subspecies, and that "race" isn't a contemporary biological category at all. Then I will address some of the other topics mentioned in the OP in-thread, so as to not bump a OP with any trace of uncertainty or arguable points; letting it only contain basics of human biology and leaving the potential debates for the reply-chains. I invite mods to be heavy-handed if /pol/ or IDpol thinks they're welcome while the replies are going, as I want this to develop dialectically forward into a heightened biological understanding for bunkerchan and not make another "IDpol containment thread".
Please give it a chance.
>>4844 Sure, personally I feel like it would be better on /edu/.
>>4854 Yeah, I agree. I think /edu/ is the better choice.

A rant about the moderation Sputnik##SgNipD 11/11/2019 (Mon) 16:42:42 No. 2657 [Reply] [Last]
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

Hey I got permanently banned from literally all of Bunkerchan because I had a single mental breakdown on /GET/ and just think that’s extremely excessive, I use the website all the time and think a vol racistly conflated me with the Sakai troll because I’m black, in reality I have severe BPD and put out decent threads in /leftypol/ and don’t see how it’s fair to be banned from every board because of how I acted in a single board once
>>4787 >sadist black male Based, welcome to the banned Nazbol gang now. Looks like you had bad beef with your exes and they've permanently mentally scarred you. Your looking for a lover that won't treat like shit while trying to force her to unrequitally love you so you don't have to go through another one of those breakups yet again and if you do it will be on your terms. The fact that it's a white girl most likely means that you like white women and not any of this "misogyny" bullshit those FA/GET/S are trying to claim. Most likely you can't carry out your revenge on your exes through legal or extralegal means safely so this is your mind telling you a alternative way. Apart from that you might need some type of counselor because I don't think anyone could be in such a abusive relationship for so long before leaving you and you'll be on a tightrope of the women claiming domestic abuse. I believe your goal is to make certain that the object of your love won't leave you and abuse you and it is important to take advice from other like minded people on who to go forward to acquire that goal. Maybe look up some sadist forums on how they get full control of their M's and not in the bed but in all aspects of social life.
What was the point of the software update to be able to move threads when the mods don't even use it? Move >>197398 to >>>/hobby/ or /a/ Move the country/region-specific cyclicals to >>>/ref/ Move tech threads to >>>/tech/ Move lit threads to >>>/edu/ There's no reason for /leftypol/ to be so clogged. Every time shitpost threads gets anchored it drags quality threads with them by inertia and anons not usually keeping track of ~5-7 pages of /leftypol/ at once (for good reason). This means effort threads continuously die prematurely for a problem that has apparently been solvable for some time now (mods able to move threads yet not doing it). Please attend to it.
