Roadmap Comrade Board volunteer 01/16/2020 (Thu) 23:35:45 No. 3941 [Reply] [Last]
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. Even shitty ms Paint illustrations of how you imagine it are greatly appreciated and usefull. Currently the dev team is focussing on gochan development. 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. Please note: New wordfilters/flags are not site features. Whining about your ban is not a site feature. If you ask about this your post will be remove. If you spam you will get a short ban from the gulag board. .t codemonkey admin

Mods, can you please clean up this thread >>>/hobby/5906/? Some retarded rightoid redditor started derailing it by posting about gun control.

would it be possible to fix .gif transparency without breaking video thumbnails? prior to the update, .gifs had the same transparency as normal images, but now they seem to automatically have a white background in the thumbnail (which breaks any gif intended to blend with the board theme, like pic related.)

>>8865 Level up your format.
>>8866 noted, but now the thumbnail is static.
>>8867 Blame that ass Stephen Lynx for discrimination against a superior format.

>>8883 If that thread is what passes for communism these days, we are in dire staits. Critical support for the jannies against self important pseuds who have creepy spergouts about men who like self reliant women.
>>8876 This anon makes a good point. >>8880 This anon is a bootlicking retard who, despite pretensions about understanding how power works since they post on a leftist imageboard, apparently can't grasp the most basic concept that the way centralized forums and webpages are run is fundamentally undemocratic. Rules are the most important thing to holding undemocratic mod corps accountable, if you don't have rules they can do whatever the hell they want to discussions including bending them to their own viewpoints by removing wrongthink.
>>8886 No, YOU fuck off, Ginjeet!
>>8887 >If that thread is what passes for communism these days, we are in dire staits. Nigga, are you fo' real?! That thread methodically corrects people towards actual communist ethics, aesthetics, belonging, and so on. Have you actually READ the fucken thread you are yappin' about?

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

Posting with flags, admin tags, tripfagging, ect ect ect. Comrade 11/05/2019 (Tue) 16:54:51 No. 2608 [Reply] [Last]
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/

It's attention whoring pseudo-nonymous faggotry and always has been.
It's because of the huge overlap with twitter/reddit/facebook.
>>8466 Not really
tripflagging is in a very special place tbh. it allows the maintenance of a consistent identity without actually breaking anonymity. it's very good for playing a character or building context for a given post without becoming an outright avatarfag. specifically, avatar and to a lesser extent name use invites a "how was your day?" kind of discussion and a coherent identity, which leads to these circlejerky little social groups. tripflagging remains topic-prominent, you think "ah, i remember this angry cat poster from the thread on public transport" or whatever, but it's far less likely to invite "ah, angry cat - how are you? and your ailing mother?" type circlejerks. you will grow to know more and more of angry cat's political opinions, but always remain ignorant of their personality. there's also always the possibility it's just someone else with the same ideology or flag choice. you know you're dealing with a leninhat, but is it that leninhat? in that ambiguity lies the key that retains an "anonymous" style of discussion around events and ideas rather than around people. in the tedious desperation to import 4chan derived culture (it's just attention whoring! it's reddit! disapprove!) lies ignorance of the ways in which /leftypol/ can-and-has evolved imageboard based discussion. a voluntary flag is less anonymous than nothing, but more anonymous than a name or avatar. it signifies something, but not much. though 4chan /pol/ has flags, it never evolved to use them in the way that 8/leftypol/ did, and it's a shame they're less common now.
>>8843 It's the influx of reddit MLs who can't stand seeing an ancom flag. On r/communism they will ban you on sight of you had ever posted in one of the anarchist subreddits. They bring the same attitude when they come here.

How come nazbols are tolerated here? Comrade 11/23/2020 (Mon) 06:49:51 No. 8796 [Reply] [Last]
It's gotten so bad that w have nazbol namefags and that one nazbol preteen is still making threads. They bring nothing but idpol to the table (race, antisemitism, sexism, etc). Is this site finally cucked?
11 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>8802 >All too often opposing idpol is just a cover for being a reactionary. Yes. That's why we ban idpol. I've personally banned the nazbol at least 10 times.
>>8811 The reason that idpol is banned is not because "when socialism comes everything will be fixed". The anti-idpol take is not that recognizing racism as a serious problem is idpol. It is a nuanced take that many noobs do not have and instead opt for vulgar class reductionism.
>>8814 I'm not arguing against the mod policy here just the class reductionism. Here's Lenin saying the exact same thing, that a tribune of the people must fight and notice all injustice, this doesn't in any way go counter to maintaining the abolition of wage-labor: > It cannot be too strongly maintained that this is still not Social-Democracy, that the Social-Democrat’s ideal should not be the trade union secretary, but the tribune of the people, who is able to react to every manifestation of tyranny and oppression, no matter where it appears, no matter what stratum or class of the people it affects; who is able to generalise all these manifestations and produce a single picture of police violence and capitalist exploitation; who is able to take advantage of every event, however small, in order to set forth before all his socialist convictions and his democratic demands, in order to clarify for all and everyone the world-historic significance of the struggle for the emancipation of the proletariat
>>8797 >>8796 >they bring nothing but idpol <the example being the one obvious shitposter who namefags for the sake of their shitposting LOL we're lefty politically incorrect, not r/socialism. Not liking an ideology is not going to do anything about it, nor debunk it. >>8802 >it's a cover for reactionary! fuck off you've been whining about this on half a dozen threads for over a month already >>8808 >this is utopian Tell that to Lenin lol >as long as they hate each other because they think people are race If you bothered to read any of the FAQ - (though admittedly the Global Rules have still not been posted) - you'll notice that the stance of leftypol is against racism and sexism. This does not require unequivocal support of every jack and jill who LARPs as a socialist while pushing a liberal agenda. Radical liberals are still liberals. Black orWhite supremacists, neither are our comrades.
