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
>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.
>Vote closes 8pm UTC 05/12/19
That favicon vote has been superceded by voting on other options, the expansion to character limit will be implemented when we can get ahold of Space.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.

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!
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: The recreation of /tech/ 08:00 WENSDAY 1/15/2020 Vote will conclude on Saturday 08:00UTC

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.
Vote: Approve the updated manifesto, which will formally replace the old manifesto and will be posted on /leftypol/ and other boards as applicable. Critical vote, ends 12/02/20 at 1am UTC. All staff.
>>4176 Oppose. The authors have no intention of abiding by this document and it's not worth the electrons used to write it.
>>4181 Harsh but ok
>>4176 It's a fucking website, not a country. lol >congressional matters You should have spent the time reading. >Our mission, above all, is to learn, and help others learn, the philosophical tools necessary to elucidate the interrelated and ever-increasingly complex space of self, society, and politics, from the local to the global scale. Oh nvm, I see you were just masturbating. I do it too, everyone does, but usually my emissions don't come out as text.
>>4256 >congressional matters presidium ffs there's a perfectly cromulent word you could have used that is more apropos
Why are the mods bigger sjws and more strict than the 8leftypol bo?
Why is Tor blocked again? I thought it was decided to enable it.
Don't. Terrible idea. If you're considering it, you've never been to ULP or you're 15yo yourselves. So now mods, in addition to barely managing bunkerchan (and not doing a great job of it, let's be honest), want to manage a discord/riot chat that will most certainly be flooded with /pol/acks, children and "memers". You haven't addressed the issues of moderation on bunkerchan, but now you want to expand? Why? This is obviously just a power grab. "People want to use a chat? Better control that too!" I wouldn't be opposed to you guys doing these things if you have shown to have an iota of leadership ability in you, but you don't. That's why you allow admins to run rampant, and that is why you rely on voting to make decisions, so that you can wash your hands of the decision. Why should we let 7 people who can't even talk amongst themselves to reach a consensus to increase their sphere of influence? What, you want to be terrible at something else now, too?
>>4381 >That's why you allow admins to run rampant tbf, the mods couldn't do anything about pyongyang, Space_ was the only one who could demote him and he didn't want to.
>>4382 I use "mods" to mean the whole bunkerchan leadership. There seems to be no cohesion amongst the mods and often they seem to be on opposite sides of issues (tonbe resolved by a simple vote). How can such a leadership provide a "unitary vision" for the site? Will the chat also require voting, further slowing down decision-making and evolution of the website? Honestly, even if the mod team here was perfect, the discord/riot chat would also be a terrible idea. It will reduce traffic to the site, because now people will have an "official" chat to talk about things, and won't have to come here to do it. But then again, it might get all the kids off the board. 🤔 But our mod team is not perfect and I doubt their ability to run two things successfully based on the fact that they're not able to run one thing successfully.
>>4383 >There seems to be no cohesion amongst the mods and often they seem to be on opposite sides of issues (tonbe resolved by a simple vote). Yes it's called a 'consensus' and it helps to highlight problems with stupid ideas by one or two people so that they can be fixed or discarded, it's to prevent bad decisions getting forced through by one person like what killed /leftypol/ the first time

Why was I banned permanently?
>>4500 Not a vol or admin so I'm speculating here, but that's a very broad rangeban that's probably at the ISP level So someone who uses the same internet provider was probably doing something like spamming advertisements or NSFW then resetting their IP when banned
>>4500 Piggybacking on this, Mods need guidance on what IP ranges to ban and not ban - many individual VPN exits and tor exits are banned for a variety of (very) old rule-breaks for the usual spam etc. Would it be possible to have a way to distinguish genuine IPs from proxied ones so that others aren't affected by it as well?
>>4502 Hope they get it fixed, I had to switch over to my VPN to post again.
