Official Thread For Discussion Of Moderator Votes Comrade 08/26/2019 (Mon) 02:58:59 No. 1928
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

All the top /tech/ topics are being migrated over, I don't think you need to worry about anime fans posting in your super serious software dev topics, at worst you might get some new interest from people that never used /tech/.
>>2388
Honestly man, it's not just this it's everything. I'm not mad, I'm just tired of it. I don't remember the last competent choice made by the staff, maybe the tiny character limits? Between that Krates accidentally deleting all my posts on >>>/leftypol/, staff now deleting the board I moved to after that happened, the repeat incompetent choices, the ineffectual responses, and the shitty styling and parsing on the site, I think I'll go through with this. Why not.
>>2389
Sorry man. I just wanted to make discussion more active.
>>2390
>Sorry man. I just wanted to make discussion more active.
You're not responsible, no need to apologize, we're all just causal processes, it makes more sense for me to blame the big bang than you personally. Don't worry about it. My actions are not motivated by anger, and hopefully we can have a healthy relationship once things are up and running.
>>2383
>>2385
Based. Glad it's finally happening.
>>2393
Well, at least somebody isn't up in arms about it. Thanks.
>>2394
Very few people seem to have an issue with it, /hobby/ is actually getting 20-30 posts per hour. Going from 3 dead boards to 1 active board is definitely a good thing.
>>2396
<Going from 3 dead boards to 1 active board is definitely a good thing.
>go to hobby
>/tech/ doesn't get discussed
It's almost like /hobby/ is only active because It's new and people have shilled for it instead of it being a merge.
>>2363
Just leave /dead/ alone. If it's not very active, that means it's not taking up many server resources. So what if there's a slow board on the site? No every board on 4chan is as active as /b/ or /pol/, they have /t/ which is slow.

There is room for slow boards on the site. How about this, make me BO of /dead/ and if we're not at whatever threshold of PPH you deem acceptable in a month you can delete it.
>>2399
>/tech/ doesn't get discussed
Then discuss it. Nothing is stopping you.
>>2400
anonrade speaks troof
>>2400
You realize it takes resources to his even a dead board right?
Some mother fucking radlib mod is censoring shit that hurts his fee fee again.
This post got deleted out of the sex politics cyclical
>>115477
And my post in the Richard Spencer meltdown thread got deleted too. It wasn't referenced by anyone so I don't have the number.
>>2597

when were the posts, made? Also, this thread is not for complaints make a new thread please.
>>2598
The post I made in the Spencer thread was posted on the 2nd.
We are holding currently two new votes:
Vote 1 - Critical - Bunkerchan - /gulag/ should be the exclusive board for all meta discussions. Vote closes 14:00 UTC 07/11/2019
Vote 2 - Critical - Bunkerchan - There should be board specific threads on /gulag/ about mod related issues. (Only if vote 1 above is approved, for obvious reasons). Vote closes 14:00 UTC 07/11/2019

>Vote 1
Sure, as long as the vols don't post >>>/gulag/ and delete posts at any whiff of meta discussion. People replying to a banned post with positive or negative feedback isn't by itself a "discussion." It's pretty easy to make a thread/post here and reply to such a post there with a link to here. Just type >>>/gulag/2601 or whatever the post number is and you can link from other boards. If someone has more nuanced to say than MODS=GODS or "that didn't warrant a ban" they can post about it here and link that in a reply to the post. Big problem with /gulag/ is lack of activity. If meta discussion goes here, there should at least be crosslinks from the place being discussed. That way you will get more traffic here and the people who are most interested will see there's a discussion happening. If standard procedure is simply "take it to /gulag/" then at best people have to look for the discussion here and at worst it disappears into the void.

>Vote 2
This seems like a reasonable approach if Vote 1 passes.
>>2602
>Just type >>>/gulag/2601 or whatever the post number is and you can link from other boards. If someone has more nuanced to say than MODS=GODS or "that didn't warrant a ban" they can post about it here and link that in a reply to the post.
That's basically what I had in mind. When I proposed "/gulag/ should be the exclusive board for all meta discussions", I didn't mean that all meta discussion should be deleted and banned on sight but merely redirecting anons to /gulag/ so they can have a proper space to debate their points without derailing a thread or clogging up a board with meta.
>>2603
Neat. Then the practice just needs to be encouraged until it's standard.

This vote has FAILED at present but it may return in a different form as we work on things behind the scenes - thank you for your patience.

Vote 1: The maximum message length on /leftypol/ and /hobby/ will be doubled to 8192 characters. Vote closes 8pm UTC 05/12/19

Vote 2: The following image will be added to Bunkerchan as a favicon. Vote closes 8pm UTC 05/12/19
First of all this voting system is bad because anyone can very easily rig it with proxies/VPNs ITT.

>>2798
1. Sure I don't care.
2. No because we're supposed to pick from multiple possible favicons, not just one choice.

(789.00 B 16x16 bunker-red-sky.png)
(901.00 B 16x16 alunya.png)
For example here are some other possible favicons people can vote on.
>>2799
Exactly the reason why only mods can vote, the input of the users in this topic is advisory

>>2800
They're ok but too small to really distinguish (though I have a small soft spot for the alunya one)
(822.00 B 16x16 bunkerchan logo smol.png)
>>2800
What about this?
>>2803
That would have been my second choice but I think it's a bit hard to discern.

Oh, well, hell, I'll put those two to the collective too.

>Vote 1: The maximum message length on /leftypol/ and /hobby/ will be doubled to 8192 characters. Vote closes 8pm UTC 05/12/19
Check with space on what the page size of the machine bunkerchan is running on and ask if it'll cause any issues first, if no issues go for it
>Vote 2: The following image will be added to Bunkerchan as a favicon. Vote closes 8pm UTC 05/12/19
Sure go ahead, it can always be changed again later right?

'alunya' and 'bunkerchan logo smol' are also being voted on now.

I picked our girl, she's the hero of my heart, but we'll see.
>>2798
>Vote closes 8pm UTC 05/12/19
And?
>>2816
That favicon vote has been superceded by voting on other options, the expansion to character limit will be implemented when we can get ahold of Space. Thanks.
(419.00 B 16x16 bunker shaded favicon.png)
The favicon vote has ended, with this as the victor! It will be added as soon as we can get Space to. Also, >>>/get/ will now be filtered to >>>/GET/ on /leftypol/ and /gulag/ in order to make links work. Thanks friends!
>>2826
soooo Is Space going to do it or...
>>1928 Vote passed and will be implemented: All volunteers of /leftypol/ and /hobby/ should also have volunteer status on /gulag/ for general board maintenance and spam prevention and in order to directly reply to posts with volunteer tags. Vote passed and will be implemented: A plaintext link to 'catalog' will be added to the top of threads and board homepages on all boards to aid 4channers in acclimatising and limit confusion, the existing catalog button will be left in place as well.
>>1928 Vote: (you)s wlll be implemented for post replies as seen on 8/4chan to aid in acclimatisation. Vote ends 09/01/20, general vote (all vols)
>>3917 Vote passed and will be implemented by the tech team workload permitting.
>>1928 Vote: It will be added to the /leftypol/ manifesto and agreed by the general mod team that post history must be reviewed in full by the acting volunteer before an IP deletion is issued, for both global bans, and board specific bans on /leftypol/, /hobby/, and /gulag/. Vote ends 14/4/20 5am UTC. All vols permitted to vote.

Enjoy.

VOTE: This vote will bring to the floor the creation of a roulette board the test the user demand for temporary boards. If boards garner enough traffic (as to be deliberated upon by the staff) then the board would establish a permanent home on the site. Otherwise it is to be tossed to the dust bin of history; either to be forgotten or be rehased in the future. This vote will conclude on Monday 13:30UTC
>>3966 Kudos whoever thought of this compromise. Even if it doesn't work its a good attempt
>>3966 Oppose. As /GET/ is supposed to be operating as our /b/, thread frequency on a given topic there should be instructional on the requirement for a new board.
>>3966 Please make /his/ the first board (or vote on it), for the reasons I have argued here: >>>/leftypol/220035 >>>/leftypol/220040 >>>/leftypol/220101 >>>/leftypol/220379
>>3966 >This vote will conclude on Monday 13:30UTC It is Tuesday.

>>3982 The vote was concluded and passed with a unanimous effort. I created the board but the other admins walked it back, saying that it should wait until we can put it in the java bars API at the top to not cheat anyone of any time on the board and maximizing user exposure too it. I am in partial agreement with their logic. Needless too say, the vote has passed.
VOTE: This vote will be considered CRITICAL as par the constitution of this site. This vote will codify the move to bring new staff members onto the team. As it sits the amount of work currently required is more than I think the few of us can handle, atm. This vote will ratify the desire of the current administration to bring new people into the inner circle. This vote will conclude on Saturday 1/25/2020 at 19:00UTC
VOTE: It is my belief that polyops are using their image-macros, even in good faith arguments, to spread inane propaganda involving their ideological view points.In lieu of this I am proposing that we spoil all files posted or shared by Nazi posters as not to give them ideological ground and force them to focus mainly on their arguments. This vote will conclude on Sunday 20:30UTC
>>3986 Why can't you, as an admin, change the top bar? Don't tell me space is the only person who can do it.
>>4050 Because I am not proficient enough in javascript in order to do so. We already have it changed, though, we just need space to push the features through.
