>>7144 I said there was two IPs spamming that's all that can be said with certainty. It doesn't matter, if you spam your shit gets deleted.
>>7145 I'd just like to confirm for the audience that I'm the other IP that got banned and I was making fun of the one who's complaining about Dengist mods Of course I'd have preferred neither of us got banned, but there is no doubt our central committee of board volunteers have been fair and even handed to both sides of the argument We'll stop now yeah comrade other IP Unban us both plz?
>>7076 >Everybody hates it <literally only 1-2 posters say "ew no" and hobby itself remains slow but active.
>>7147 not hobby itself, but the act of having their thread jerked. I could understand if there was more posters on both, hobby should at this stage be supplementary. Also its stupid because for example with musix threads its mostly leftist music.
>>7148 I can understand that, however its pretty stupid since it's pretty straightforward, topics not related directly to politics (such as movies, media and other stuff) goes in /hobby/, where numerous and fairly active threads exist.

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

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

>>6835 Why did you think it was a good idea for mods to have to fill out a captcha?
>>6997 So they couldn't spam the logs. But there's a recent setting that disables that, in case the site trusts all mods.
>>7000 They can still spam them by deleting posts
>>7019 They can't because they can only delete a post once. So you need to make more posts and stumble into anti-flood measures.

/hobby/ Mod feedback thread. Comrade Board volunteer 10/23/2019 (Wed) 16:57:58 No. 5534 [Reply] [Last]
/hobby/ Mod feedback thread Hello everyone, and welcome to /hobby/! This topic will serve as an introduction as well as the mod feedback area. I know that some people were not on board with our decision to merge the boards, but please give it a chance and hopefully you will find it to be as comfy as where you used to hang out, but with more population. In addition, Comrade King has kindly volunteered to migrate over all the topics that have had activity in the last few weeks so you can continue your conversations. However, I want to stress that this board should be treated as a clean slate and you should make use of the freedom that it allows. In this space feel free to make topics about any kind of hobby, entertainment, passtime, interest or vocation. These topics don't have to be related to leftism, though of course you should feel free to do so if you would like. Overall, this board is intended to give refugees of 8chan somewhere to post about their favourite interests without having to go into whatever new skinhead-infested DoD honeypot is created to replace it. An example of the kind of topic that might be encouraged is to start a topic discussing your favourite workout routines or recipes, or discussing an interesting movie that has recently been released. We would encourage people to put effort into their OPs however, as one line shitposts might be more comfortable on /GET/. As we have merged other boards in order to create /hobby/, we would like to remind all users that it is possible for more boards to be created in future out of /hobby/ if they demonstrate a good user count/post volume such that they would be able to support a board on their own. Overall, the moderation standards here are similar to the ones on /leftypol/, and I have included their manifesto for reference, with the exception that posts do not have to have a political slant or basis. I hope you will all enjoy this board together and that we can have some good conversations.

>>6394 You're the retard because you can't fucking read. No-one said or cares if its "older" what matters is what /GET/ is. Currently /GET/ is NOTHING BUT shitposts.

Also I feel that since the board is slow anyway we ought to extend the bumplimit over 500, since we lack a dedicated thread archive.

Proxy and VPN blocked Comrade 09/04/2020 (Fri) 23:57:51 No. 6838 [Reply] [Last]
Every day more proxy and VPN IP are blocked with this message: >Your IP was recognized as a known spammer Please fix this. I found one working proxy to post after two hours trying many proxies. Yesterday three proxies I used still worked, now give this error. Are the IP blocked by this site or the host? Hope it is possible to fix even if it is the host. Some people live in countries where political activism is more dangerous. Proxy and VPN are necessary but somewhere free list proxies and free VPN are the only safe way to post because government knows who pays for VPN or private proxies. Pic unrelated but it is happy unity. Sorry for my non native English.
>>6838 I think this is a cloudfare issue rather than a lynxchan one.
cant even post using tor fuck these faggots they keep banning the ips and you can't even files anymore >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected >flood detected fuck you
>>6840 No, there are a hell of a lot of rangebans also. >>7150 I know that feel. Wait 1min and the flood block is gone. "Bunkerchan", more like shift+ctrl+l chan...
>>6840 It may be a Cloudflare issue, but why is it necessary to have those tight Cloudflare anti-spam blocks in the first place? It's nearly impossible for people to post freely using any kind of anonymisation, which, like the OP said, is pretty fucked up especially on a site where leftist politics are discussed. I personally am lucky that I don't need a proxy or VPN or Tor or whatever, but everyone should have the ability to use them... and maybe I'm imagining it, but I've noticed at least /GET/ and /ref/ seem a bit less active recently and I wouldn't be one bit surprised if it had to do with this shit. Consider how 8kun literally has no "protection" whatsoever, yet it remains up and running. If a far-right looney site can afford to not have tight spam protection, why can't a left-wing non-looney site? The "solution" can't be "use Tor until it works" because this is at the end of the day an imageboard and you can't post pics with Tor... and if Torposting was allowed in full (as in you could post pics and there were no bans), there'd be literally no reason not to allow proxyposting and VPNposting as well. There factually is no reason other than paranoia. Sure, there may be occasional raids, and during those raids such blocks do make sense, but not when there isn't an ongoing raid (or its immediate aftermath). I understand there's probably no chance of these anti-spam measures being loosened no matter how many people complain, but seriously, it just sucks that this site is semi-actively pushing users away... possibly in an incidentally discriminatory way those who'd need a site like this the most. I don't know what country the OP for example is from, but I do know it should be irrelevant when it comes to who can post. If they can't post without a proxy or VPN, then isn't it literally discrimination to prevent them from posting at all? Maybe that's a "liberal idpol" argument, I don't know, but I'd assume countries where people need a proxy or VPN to post on a leftist site are not any kind of leftist countries. As for Torposting, again, what's the big deal about Tor users posting pics? Some might spam CP or whatever, but how likely is that actually as a regular enough occurrence that it'd warrant such measures? I understand that this is a small site that can't have hypervigilant 24/7 moderation so it wouldn't be possible to delete it within seconds, and that nobody wants to see that shit even just to delete it... but if there's a CP spam wave, why not briefly block pics from Torposters then for a variable period of time so that the spammer can't predict when it ends? Or, since there at least supposedly is a "block bypass", why not make it actually functional in all cases? I mean, what's the point if it doesn't even work how it's supposed to? Sorry for the rant, I guess, but please understand our collective frustration.

bunkerchan moderation Anonymous 07/30/2020 (Thu) 00:05:55 No. 5863 [Reply] [Last]
>inb4 move this to /gulag/ this has been a long time coming Mods, please unban the wojak script. I know it can be annoying but with the addition of the porky images to the wojak script its a great way to reply to pol/yps etc. I don't understand what the rationale is for banning the wojak script on bunkerchan, users should be free to post what they want unless its fashspam. TBH i've been very unsatisfied with the way bunkerchan is run. The users are what make it what it is, but every decision on moderation is made in some smoke filled room on irc/riot where the userbase is not consulted or even polled using strawpoll or whatever. The recent banning of the wojakscript, in addition to some of the overzealous anchoring of threads which discourages shitposting and memery. While Old BO is long gone, the impetus behind her moderation style is still there which is to ban anything that smells like fun and/or shitposting, every thread has to be some revleft-style serious theory thread or at least a prompt on current events. The decline of leftypol and leftypol's influence on the broader online left since 2018 is a direct result of this culture, as it disincentivizes shitposting, since 2018 leftypol has hardly created any memes at all, with the possible exception of a few cybercom memes. The meme culture is even more derivative of nu/pol/ than before. You can say this is partly the result of the userbase getting older but still. Leftypol is a very unique space on the online left since every other place is a reddit/twitter idpozzed hugbox where no fun is allowed. I like imageboards and the memes they produce and I also like having a place to discuss left wing politics which is not filled with radlibs and doesn't require me to make an account. It's unfortunate that bunkerchan doesn't really have an alternative that users can go, since leftypol.org is now merged in and GETchan is not widely used. Additionally there are the longstanding technical problems with scaling and the lynxchan board software which prevents the site's userbase from growing much faster and the incredibly slow progress on gochan. I'm sure every From a technical perspective the gochan codebase is frankly a mess, and it's pretty difficult to even get running if you download the source code. IMO the thing is a flaming shitpile and aside from certain things (like the ERD/database schema) that should be kept, it should probably be rewritten, possibly even in another framework or even other language. It's unclear that golang is the best language to write an imageboard in, but i digress.
