Did you get any errors while posting? Or why do you think it caught your image in the first place?

Hello everyone. I am making this post to announce the establishment of the leftychan official IRC network: irc.leftychan.net/6697 #leftychan
It took about a days worth of work but we finally managed to get her up and running. We plan to establish a bridge connection in the future to the matrix and fbi.gov chats and possibly a massive bridge room too. Also I2P service is coming in the future. So, come join us, anon! It sure would be nice having you around the IRC!

I'm using hexchat. I got it working. You have to check the box "accept invalid ssl certificates" so you might want to check your certs.

….but, in the meantime, I forgot to post about this: As some of you are probably aware the matrix.leftychan.net captcha system is broken making it impossible to create an account over your element clients.
In order to by pass this you can make an account in your browser @ https://talk.leftychan.net and then you will be able to log onto to your user from the element client. Then you can join #leftychanspace:matrix.leftychan.net and you will be taken to the appropriate rooms.

Sorry for the inconvenience! This will be fixed as soon as possible.

Can we unsticky this?

This sticky will be for discussion about the on goings of votes currently happening in the congress.
All votes that happen in the congress must be required to be posted here upon their establishment as a vote in the voting hall.

For anyone who is not aware:

Every single person on this board is entitled one vote on the matrix for any vote that is taking place on sed matrix. Voting functions as follows: Firstly you must join the matrix upon which you will enter a vetting room. The vetting is pretty much to make sure you are not a poltard and that you follow some tenant of socialism, nothing more.

After you are vetted you will be added to the chat, the voting hall and the congress respectively. Any anon may make any proposal at any time
In order for a proposal to become a vote, firstly, a proposal must be created (duh); simply make a post in the votting hall declaring your proposal.
A proposal must receive two thumbs up by two other congress members other than the person who drafted the proposal.

After you get two thumbs up you, or any other congress member, may open up a vote by declaring that it is a vote, a short summary of what the vote is over, and a date and a time for when the vote will conclude.
In order for a vote to pass there must be a civil majority (no ties) from the time the vote opens to the time the vote closes. Votes close, nominally after 3 days from the time they are start, but, if a majority of 6 or more anons over overwhelmingly support the proposal then the vote can be fast tracked to 24 hours upon such a threshold being reached. One last thing: A vote that is deemed critical cannot be fast tracked.
The numbers required for a proposal to become a vote and fast tracking are subject to change as the congress grows, fyi.

I am a site admin.

I generally only respond to reports unless I see something really egregious. My duty, imo, is to serve the will of the community, not to push my own agendas.

You know, looking back at the split cycles and looking back at how insane the jannies at org are currently what does chan think of the possibility that leftypol.org was the target of CIA/FBI infiltration / divide and conquer? I mean, look, we know the FBI intentionally will go after hacker forums like Raid Forums who are doing grey market shit, but, I don't think it's beyond rationality to think that a website as HUGE and influential as bunkerchan was during its heyday from being targeted by the Feds. In-fact, I would say it makes perfect sense.
Look at the current state of org and tell me it's not glowing brighter than the surface of the sun. I think it makes perfect sense that the FBI would want to get something like org under control and foreign agencies have already targeted us in the past.
So what do you think anons? Fact or fiction?

>I'm out of arguments

>t. future Republican


What's the distinction between the two major political bourgeois parties in the US ?


Real talk tho: eugene's mentally ill ravings are every bit as bad as large language model spam (assuming they aren't a language model themselves). Giant walls of text that you immediately ignore that sometimes cause you accidentally associate them with posters who aren't mentally ill by accident. Why would anyone want to start up a sincere discussion looking for intelligent input when the first thing they'll receive is a schizo diatribe? It's very demoralizing.

Insomniac troglodyte jannies are deleting threads that challenge 'the narrative.'

.ogre tier faggotry.

Is this sort of ghey censorious behavior a bug or feature of leftism?

>Why put up with challenging discourse that points out the plot holes and contradictions of western muhleftism when you can delete and censor?

I fully expect this thread to be deleted as well. Too bad the jannies can't spend more time creating interesting threads. That's too hard for them ig


A few threads were removed in error, they should be restored shortly.


lmao, ironically this is the same quick to the draw retardation anons did back in the day any time anything hapened at all.

>Thread stays up for nearly half a year with no issue

>Get's deleted
>Anon retard is here waiting, frothing at the mouth, to post in meta bitching about how "this is the end"

We're working on restoring the threads, stop being a fucking retard.

PPH counters, ip counters, ip counters with in threads: These were and are still a mistake of modern imageboards.
The ability to know how many participants (other than being against the spirit of anonymity) turns posters into rabid skitzos about how fast the board is, or, how many people are visiting the board, or, how many eyes are on us, etc etc. It used to not be like this and, mind you, this is not a jab at leftypol. Modern Imageboard software is guilty of this over all, but, the issue is it incentivizes more "posting for the sake of posting" rather than for A: Posting quality and B: posting because you truly want to/have something to say even if it is just a shit post or a green text story.

It makes anons neurotic about the state of the website, which, in the long run, actually hurts more than it helps.

Counters were a mistake.

No, OP is right, counters were a massive fucking mistake.

While that is a legitamate concern, there's not much you can do about that without some federated set up. Meanwhile preventing SEObrain is a solid reason to hide it.

Are the jannies purposely try to sabatage their own board or are they incompetent?

Is there any other explanation from why obvious AI generated texts are being tolerated?

This is a serious question

The thing is it's not apparent to me how to write code to detect AI posts if such a thing is even possible.


Will do. Thanks for the heads up
Ya, it's probably a tough nut to crack. Right now, they are very apparent, simply comes the writing is long and comes across as a contrived character.


Is it me or this shit appeared immediately right after the Hamas attack? What's the reason for it?


It's hard to say. It was also shortly after we trolled tf out .org. I could see them being petty/aspie enough to do something like that, especially because to favors their lack of creativity and shallow mental faculties.


What does it matter if it's .org or the government of Canada?

Basically there is only one thing we can do right now and that is remove that shit manually, and change the rules.

I also said this in the chat:

I am just very skeptical of having a way to "code around" AI spam, because to me the only real way is to have AI do it. That's just what I've read about like training AI to detect AI. And I am not that well-read on the subject anyway.

I didn't really expect this to be a problem so soon, and maybe it's not the end of the world just yet, but when I was designing spamnoticer I just said let's do the best we can before I have to use AI. So yeah a database of existing shit won't help here. There may be other approaches that are not AI-based but I am not aware of them.

What I was thinking is that having a large enough dataset to fine-tune an existing large language model (like llama) would let us have a chatbot that tells you if the post is AI or not. But that's like an active area of research, requires some unknown-to-me amount of examples to train it and a lot of compute to run. It's theoretically possible but not realistic right this second.

i thought leftychan.net is bunkerchan renamed.

so you all are saying leftychan.net is the original leftypol ?




No we aren't saying; It literally is factually the original leftypol.


It went bunkerchan -> leftypol.org -> leftychan.net


Where does GETchan stand in all this?

I don't know if there is ever a perfect time to announce this so here we go:

I've been working on some updates to the site. Before you get excited this shouldn't affect you as the user directly, it's more about tooling to help the mods out with spam content.

The test site https://dev.leftychan.net is updated with a work in progress of leftychan's first major update. If you're a moderator I urge you to check it out, you will find there's a new link on your dashboard, as well as a change to the ban page.

The dev site is now running php 8.1 (before we were running 7.4) and twig 3.x which AFAIK makes leftychan the most up-to-date library-wise out of the vichan forks.

There's a new spam filter in place that I've named SpamNoticer. I hope that when posting it stays out of your way, I've gone to significant lengths to ensure a small amount of false-positives. However if you test and find annoying behaviour that falsely flags your post as spam it would help if you tell us. Actually my hope is that we can even lower some of the rate limits with this in place.

The SpamNoticer database (for the dev site) is exposed read-only publically at https://dev-pgrest-spam.leftychan.net/ which is a new api that we can have thanks to postgrest. It will not rightnow serve up the original images though, just metadata about what was posted, determined to be spam, blocked and why.

Mods, you'll find that the ban/delete page(s) have been changed slightly to let you manually tell the system that a certain posts's content should be blocked. There's also a link to the UI on the mod dashboard.

The purpose of announcing this publically is the hope that we can make sure existing functionality is not broken, and posting content is not hindered by the new software. The UI is completely a sketch, and is incomplete, so I would expect to have feature requests in that area, but I think it's at the point where it can be tested in terms of usefullness. And of course to validate the design in terms of usefullness.
