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

One thing I miss from 8/leftypol/ is that their was a sticky thread where people posted about books they were reading, and suggested books to people, and posted .pdfs files. Is their any plan to revive such a sticky thread? Quality has gone down sense fleeing 8chan and I think that is partially why?
>>7703 You can post books here >>>/leftypol/668788, the archived one is here >>>/leftypol/8537, or do you mean something else?
>>7785 do you remember the thread where pic related were from
>>7802 If you're talking about the /read/ing group thread, it's been bumped off /leftypol/. The successor of this thread is found on /edu/ here >>>/edu/4956 . A similar general discussion thread >>>/edu/3434

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

>>7047 No, that doesn't work either when it's meant as a verb >you can seethe all you want <you can cool & awesome all you want This kind of opposite-day filter is dumb in the first place. A better filter would retain some of the sense, while being ridiculous. Like the PMC -> "people of college" filter.
>>7310 cope harder raid fags
>>7406 I vote to fire whoever was janny when the raid thread was stickied. That was unprofessional, and it's the reason we're in this mess. I'm going back to twitter until this blows over.
>>7420 This isn't the thread for that and a false flag too but I have to mention there was never a raid thread (unless you count an announcement about /pol/ trying to raid us, which would be absurd).
>>7047 It just needs to be removed, because it's fucking retarded. What's even the point of filtering seeethe anyway? Why filter seeethe but not cope? It's just dumb and annoying.

/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.

PRIORITY 1 We need a more distinct style of css. I've seen people on twitter and elsewhere sharing screenshots of posts from /leftypol/ and because its yotsuba everyone assumes it comes from /pol/ or 4chan in general. We need a unique css that is not only readable but aesthetically distinct and LITERALLY remarkable. People have to remark on it and be told its /leftypol/ We're leaving notoriety aka free advertising on the table. Example included.
>>6967 colgate should be the default theme
>>6967 People can post their custom CSS here for /leftypol/ and we could add it if it's received well enough.
>>6967 Try this script maybe. It might not work on this chan though https://pastebin.com/R5G1JvFy
Why not a literal grey and black theme that looks like a newspaper? That way we can say we're THE MORNING LEADER, and our opponents are all THE YELLOW PRESS

1) Hobby gets less than 1% the traffic that /leftypol/ does 2) The /IG/ thread ALONE has almost 5 times more activety as ALL OF the /hobby/ board. 3) This is not indicative of a lack of interest. A /games/ thread on /leftypol/ gets about 840 times the posts per hour that the most popular thread on /games/ does. It gets more than 10 times the PPH of the activity of all of /games/ over all of time.

>>7859 >If you cannot go back to threads you have already discussed this in, I'm not spoonfeeding you I am not trying to pester you here, I am legitimately in doubt as tho what specific threads you are refering points to. If you could briefly refresh my memory, then I'd be happy to concede this point, but until then, I still believe that /IG/ is a legitimate sample for analysis. >based on a faulty calc >OK LOL Can you demonstrate the error in calculation? I am legitimately interesting in what would have to be changed in order to get a more legitimate result. >yet you ignore that /hobby/ has lost threads to /anime/, /tech/, /edu/ and /games/ I don't think I was aware. Can you tell me how many threads we're talking about here? Then we can adjust the calculations accordingly and get more accurate results. That's in my interest as well, you know. Also, would you be more willing to results that treat treats all smaller boards as just one board? That's about as much in your favour as I could think such calcs could be. >and threads get deleted or posts removed. As far as I can tell this doesn't lower the tally of total posts. A deleted post still counts towards this. Even if this was true, even more stuff is removed from leftypol which has a steady stream of /pol/-raiders. >given that people still have various hobby, games and anime threads in leftypol with posts that include those who refuse to use anime and hobby because it's allowed on leftypol, meaning that because moderation is unenforced, people refuse to use basic rules.

>>7859 Now, don't forget to hand me the data-sets you consider fair-game, because I really genuinely wanna look at that.
No. General threads are fucking cancer and always degenerate into cuckchan-style chatrooms where posts can get deleted within an hour because the thread cycles so fast.
>>7875 And what's bad about that? You can always just go to the slower boards for threads that cycle less fast.
>>7863 I'm too tired to address most of this but >Can you tell me how many threads we're talking about here? Then we can adjust the calculations accordingly and get more accurate results /games/ and /anime/ were created roughly 4 months after /hobby/. All games and anime threads were moved there, and all /tech/ content went back to /tech/ which was revived. This is easily 1/4 of all posts on /hobby/ at the time. Threads like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto h8 thread, the Berserk thread and Jojo's Bizarre adventure as well as Communist Anime Thread were some that I remember being moved to /anime/. /games/ got the 'old vidya' thread, the 'last of us 2' thread the Persona 5 thread, the Freespace thread, the Outer Worlds thread the Disco Elysium thread, the 'leftypol gaming' and 'deus ex' among others. While some of these have shown activity since then. the leftypol gaming thread has remained fairly stagnant with 374 posts from /hobby/. /tech/ recieved the fewest number of posts, mostly made up of dozens of of small threads, rather than a dozen or so medium-sized threads in /anime/ or /games/. I can't tell you the exact numbers because I'm not a mod. >as one board Sure. People who use /hobby/ also tend to use /anime/ and /games/ so go ahead. >lower the tally of total posts But it does lower PPH, unique IPs and the posts in X and Y thread. For example, when some threads were moved to /hobby/ a lot of them had the 'request to move to hobby' posts removed pre-emptively, the same applying to threads moved from /hobby/ to /anime/ or /games/ >>7864 I would, but I'm not a mod, and don't have access to anything outside of some of the public logs, which you can view as well.
