Sidebar slowing site down Comrade 08/16/2019 (Fri) 20:21:17 No. 1820 [Reply] [Last]
This sidebar is probably contributing 50% of your network usage, as well as your I/O of course. It is really annoying and basically useless. Please disable it by default.

Does anyone actually use it? It's annoying and sometimes I mistakenly click in it instead of the quick reply form and it moves to a different thread and it's annoying and I hate it
>>1913
I use it, and I like it, I’ve only accidentally clicked on it a handful of times.
I’ve scrolled the side bar when I intended to scroll the thread a lot though.

If you disable javascript it doesn't show up ever.

I was wondering, should we reach out an olive branch to /pol/ now that 8chan is banned? Maybe on a leftist imageboard we might convert them and when they have their own board it would be a nice turnaround (since we were on their board).

8ch was pretty much their site.
This site is managed by communists.
As long as pol can keep their retarditus to their own board or thread then they can have it; we need to be opening up and having a discussion with these types of people. If you want to beat their asses do it in the street. Doing it online is simply being a larping faggot.
Eh maybe 4/pol/ if you make good devoted threads, ignore bait and answer only semi good faith questions. But idk why people keep trying to do this. Interested /pol/acks that come on their own are one thing and they've become valuable members before and have good perspective. But actively recruiting them always means compromising with them and trying to find common ground which usually takes the form of adopting certain right wing idpol ("fags are annoying lol") as a cheap substitute for actual principled anti-idpol.
>>1872
But we shouldnt absolutely not have a devoted board for them. As much as "platforming" is usually a meme this would be an actual instance of giving people who have proven themselves to be virulent and encourage horrific violence a place to discuss and organize. I am entirely against it. A devoted cyclical thread on the /leftypol/ board should be the most.
>>1872
I didn't mean giving them threads, I thought about making a space for 8chan refugees where they can have their own /pol/ if you want to.

It would be a nice turn around.
>>1873
What stops people from posting their serial killer manifesto on /leftypol/? I think this 8chan blame for the shootings his hypocrisy. The shooter posted on Instagram and then someone, not him, posted it on 8chan. So is Instagram going to be shut down?

Am I going to get banned here? Comrade 08/07/2019 (Wed) 02:16:17 No. 1365 [Reply] [Last]
I didn't know where to post this so I'm assuming the meta board is the place for such questions.

/pol/ refugee here. I'm going to be completely honest, I'm a Fascist. Well, Fascist in terms of 'worldview' but politically a Strasserist and here's my beef:

>Don't:
>-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Strasserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)

So is the person advertising this place unaware of this? Wtf do I do? Am I not welcome and is anything I say gonna get me banned? I'll be blunt, I've been a 'National Socialist' since 2012, but I was a little 's' socialist. Over the past two years, I've become a big 'S' Socialist. I used to think SJW'ism was Marxist, but it's become very clear this is a product of liberalism and capitalism. I slowly began to see the impact of capitalism and industrialisation. I'm anti-capitalist, big unionist, worker collective anti-'porky'. Is my input allowed on this board? Are threads discussing race, race-class dynamics allowed? I have multiple threads ideas that feel more comfortable here than on /pol/ but frankly, might be better on /pol/ if only to bring others over to anti-capital ideas. Or at least to oppose 'conservatism'. I wouldn't know how to not 'cloak' my views in left-rhetoric when those are my views and I hold an economically left but socially hard right perspective.

Or should I take the hint and go elsewhere? I don't know why you'd advertise this with such an odd rule which clearly tells people like us to get lost.

Also, no offense, but this interface looks like shit, is there a way to change the colours and fonts?

There should be a board/website specifically dedicated to reeducating and integrating people from a /pol/ background and discussing ideas that are on the fence of acceptable within our communities.

People from /pol/ are educated by very specific articles of propaganda and ideas that are rarely directly refuted in a serious positive discussion from people who come from the same background. I feel that if there was a place where fascists who doubted their beliefs to go to talk about what is considered wrongthink in their communities it would help many people transition away.
>>1749
I say this as somebody from a /pol/ background myself. Because I've never bought into any of the cultural or super racist elements of fascist ideology that circulates on /pol/ but have always found myself critical of leftism too, resulting in me having no real "home" per say to discuss things without my opinions being unacceptable.

Point is that we are all ideologically and personally evolving from exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking and simultaneously unlearning ideas and theories we are no longer interested in or find relevant to our personal take on the world. Right wingers are just like left wingers and have arrived at their position for what they consider completely rational reasons because of what they've been exposure to up to this point, and gatekeeping due to the perceived ignorance and brainwashing of opponents prevents those few people that can doubt their dogmas from being accepted and learning about the other side of things and seeing that their enemies too arrived at their points for rational reasons and this can lend to a mutual understanding across both sides as people pursue what they believe is right together.

However I rarely see this kind of engagement on the chans or elsewhere due to specific ideological lines that do not tolerate each other enough to seriously engage with each other and hence create echochambers for radicals.

I figure a chan managed by /leftypol/ administrators that tolerates fascism specifically within the context of debate, refutation of propaganda, and reeducation would be pretty successful. I don't know, maybe something like rtspchan(reeducation through shitposting chan) with a specific board pipeline for people to go through.

>Debate
Board for undoubting fascists to debate head to head with leftists.
>Refutation
Board for doubting fascists and the refutation of propaganda.
>Reeducation
Teaching and education pipeline to instill theory for those who've dropped their beliefs and are ready to accept leftism.

Maybe it can host some essential books as well, and the presence of a specific zone for spoonfeeding curious fascists would lead them away from pure leftist areas. Sorry for rambling it's just something I'd like to see and that I'd use as an educational resource if it existed.
>>1750
somehting similar to r/debatefascism?
>>1779
except with out reddit faggotry.
/leftypol/ is fine, though
>>1779
Nah reddit sucks, if reddit provided the experience we wanted thats where we'd be. Instead Chan environments are actually pretty fun and challenging explicitly because they're anonymous and memes and shitposting can be shared easier with people with otherwise controversial opinions. Our communities were never meant to be serious its just meant to extrapolate the style of shitposting about obscure anime to obscure politics. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

>>1780
Yeah, /leftypol/ and other explicitly leftist communities counter to /pol/ are great which is why I figure a bridge would be useful to alleviate the misery of leftists trying to hold a conversation on /pol/ and vice versa.

Extraordinary Commission For Bunker Affaires Comrade 08/05/2019 (Mon) 13:05:01 No. 768 [Reply] [Last]
ATTENTION! ATTENTION!

ATTENTION! ATTENTION


Owing to the extremely unfavorable conditions of our home board, our bunker home is temporarily designated as the general centre for the public discussion of any and all affaires pertaining to the state and future of /leftypol/. This thread will serve as thread plenipotentiary for all debates and discussions on potentially returning to our home board or whether to begin re-congealing to remain here permanently.

Please speak your mind openly on the matter of the concerns you have for the board. We are at a critical juncture in our history, where we may affect a great good and benefit the stature and health of online leftist discussion.

This will also serve as a sign of redoubled commitment on the part of the present moderation team as to our goals of moderation reform and development. Any ideas on the policies, involvement of the public, or any generalities concerning the nature of our present state of emergency moderation, and future moderation, should be posted here!

As a reminder:

(Tentative, subject to further codification)
RULES:

Don't:
-spam
-post cuckshit, "commies BTFO," or any of that kind of shit
-post any porn depicting underage (including drawings)
-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Strasserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)
-incite specific acts of terrorism or similar acts (use your head, don't act like a fed)

Do:
-be respectful, ask questions, and know your place if you're a reactionary
-feel free to flame, shitpost, and be sectarian if you are a leftist (just keep it somewhat within reason)

We have decided to embark on a policy of more transparency over rules and our decisions about moderation. Our decisions will be posted here and below.

29/07/19: More glasnost can be expected (don't worry, no perestroika on the horizon). We have decided that we will ease up a bit on bans and moderation for the foreseeable future as /pol/ intrusion is not really a problem at this moment.
We will even allow reactionary posters who are not causing too much trouble to possibly attract converts and boost our numbers. Spamming or super disingenuous arguing is still liable to be punished.
In addition, we have decided to police opinions less in general - have agreed that the recent bans over China and anti-immigration were unfair (whether we agree with those opinions or not) and will endeavour to allow open dialog to flourish. Thank you for your patience.

Hello comrades. I was a moderator at /leftypol/ before the exodus. Where do I sign up now?
Greetings comrades. There are pros on and cons to staying here or returning to 8chan. Here are some that come to mind if we decide to stay on Bunkerchan:

Pros, full independence, less spam because of less visibility, feeling more legitimized that leftists can populate a board that isn't on another large platform.

Cons, less visibility which means less converts, relying on a potentially unstable platform we don't have control over, more spam because of more visibility.
shit, wrong thread
We need a catalogue mode. Plz.

Now that /leftypol/ exists isn't /left/ kind of redundant?
I see that phoneposting has been fixed. Very nice. Keep it up, guys! Sidebar by default should be off in phone version.

Sidebar should be able to be on/offed by clicking on the sidebar icon only and when "on" it should glow.
The redundant boards should probably be merged

I feel like the quality of this board has dropped sincewe no longer are required to post at least 100 characters in order to start a new thread.

It's devolving into a bunch of green text and hot takes and I find it rather annoying.

Anyone else agree?
OP I think you don't seem to realise that the mods are still trying to get the site back to its original state, as it has changed provider.
you should post this in the thread on >>>/gulag/ board owner is taking today off so it'll be at least until tomorrow
Not even a week passed and people are already complaining about post quality...

OP here, I was speaking generally as from both the bunker and the og leftypol.

He will throw you under the bus like he did with Wizardchan, InfinityNext, and 8ch. If you must use him, get the most out of him and immediately drop him when you're done. He's not "based", he's just a clout chaser who throws others under the bus for his own personal gain.

You have been warned. He will inevitably fuck you over like he did with Jim, Ron, and Wizardchan. You have been warned.

Do you guys log ip?
The only person who can see ip's in clear text is root.
Ip's are hashed and encrypted to anyone else and they only exist so long as the post in question itself exists.

This includes every one from would-be hackers to government officials.
