This is the collapse of the USSR for the internet, good job mods.


This website is just sad anon. Maybe the left has no hope.
We were the only anti-woke place but the transhumanists got to this site..

I Wonder

I wonder if there's any hope left

Where can I access /leftypol/'s archive? there are some old threads I want to read



We don't have an automatic archive, only this one. Other people may be able to help if they have cached the threads or so on. Which threads did you want in particular?


There was a thread about Lysenko back in April, I wonder if it has been cached.

I have two questions for the owners and devs of the site

1) Does people posting many images cost the website a lot of money? Like I post a lot of images and I worry that I'm ruining the HDD the site is operating on because of that?

2) When I use a picture on one thread and then use the same picture on another thread, Is it uploading and hosting the image twice? Or is your site smart enough that it uses the first to use as a host for the second file?

Thank you that is all, I have a very huge images folder and don't want to destroy the site that I like.


If that were the case I don't think the size limit would be 100 MB.


I can answer a few of these. Essentially, I'd be more careful about flooding the community than ruining the site infrastructure.

>Or is your site smart enough that it uses the first to use as a host for the second file?

Tinyboard and children (like this site) don't. It uses the Unix timestamp of when the post was uploaded as an identifier (in the address).
e.g. https://leftypol.org/meta/src/1622176382404.jpg
Usually that duplicate problem is 'solved' by not allowing duplicate files, but leftypol doesn't do that yet.
I know Lynxchan is smarter and uses a hash of the image (those 'random' letters and numbers) as an identifier, which is always the same for exact duplicate images.
e.g. https://anon.cafe/.media/135b31c5e2e9b2965140a47b4ed077e67b87433109b3c4821eadfbd0e3bf744f.gif (I posted that on two different boards, same link)

>1) Does people posting many images cost the website a lot of money?

Most server hosting deals work on a flat rate IIRC, like 2TB total storage, 100mbps bandwidth, possibly with a total bandwidth cap like 10TB a month. If so, you individually wouldn't be costing money by posting more or less unless you're hosting entire films. Either they need to pay for a whole extra tier, or they don't.

/b/ currently has an average of 12 images per thread, and 36 pages of 10 threads.
If we assume an average of 2MB per image, that's only 8.6 GB of storage needed to host /b/!

the size is 100 MBs? wew

alright thanks

Posting this in /meta/ as to not shit up the /leftypol/ catalog

There's been a huge drop in post quality after the split, and while I tried writing a few effortposts they mostly seemed to go nowhere. At least in the earlier days of /leftypol/ there was at a very least prolific production of funny memes despite sectarian shitflinging, but now, both new memes and effortposts are dwindling.

This "infrared" bullshit is the last straw, I create a thread about podcast suggestions and it was INSTANTLY shitted up by hazbros shilling their youtuber. Despite my efforts to debate in good faith they mostly just responded with the same sort of posturing bullshit that Vaush fans would do. I tried hiding the infrared post and just ignoring it but unfortunately those guys don't seem content to stay in their containment thread and spill out into literally everything. I have also requested the jannies to give the ability to at least hide single replies in threads (in tech feedback thread) but that doesn't seem to be on the menu either anytime soon.

I think I'm (unironically) going to reddit. The whole point of choosing leftypol over reddit was to escape the bullshit tone policing, but unfortunately we have gotten to the schizo saturation point where the weirdos outnumber the actual good people. Frankly, I'd rather deal with IDPOL and tone policing bullshit than whatever the fuck this has become. It would be one thing for a clique of autists to stan whatever eceleb there is (happens from time to time) but now you have literal jannies posting with their mod tags in threads supporting them and retweeting their shit from official accounts.

At least something like /r/communism has effortposts, blogs, and links to actually good resources from a ML perspective (and there are other sites/subreddits for other tendencies). I'd rather engage with thoughtful and edifying content thats slightly too identity centric than deal with this nonsense.

I don't want to debate or frankly even listen to debates. I'm tired. And old. My time is limited outside work and I don't have time to be watching some unhinged posturing sociopath stream for 6 hours, I would rather sleep or at least listen to/watch something funny, if not educational for 30 minutes to an hour.

leftypol was the best thing that ever happened to the internet left and I'll miss the mid 2010s "golden era" of leftypol with its memes and actually funny shitposts, but at least leftisPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

i dont even know what the fuck's going on anymore


looks like OP was vindicated seeing as haz/inf have been totally banned from the platform now

Wait what platform? Is their discord down?

Not worth thinking about if you can avoid it.

Workaround is typing /meta/ instead of /meta


I thought it would be a five minute thing but I couldn't fix it!


File: 1621881917597.jpg ( 8.07 KB , 224x225 , 1518288027593.jpg )


Due to the massive amount of pedophilia coming from /GET/ and the backlash in si/b/eria. Along with the Haz drama already putting the board on thin ice. It seems appropriate to create a discussion deleting the /GET/ link.

/GET/ is our brother chan, and besides, they deleted the thread anyway. We are not going to take any rash actions over one thread. Thanks for your concern however.

Amazing, this is some expert programming shit. Does it fuck up every unicode character or just uygha




The vichan docs don't mention that you have to specifically instruct the filters that multibyte characters should be treated as multibyte characters. Otherwise, by default certain accents falsely look like other letters to the PHP regex function. There are many false matches, but not all of them, as you've noticed.
This issue has been successfully fixed on our testing server and will be fixed here soon.


Is it coming with fixes like the shitty alignment of short messages next to single images?


I can, but I unironically couldn't find or create a post to replicated the issue in order to make sure I fixed it.
Can you link a post?

That applies to high effort replies too.

And fix the "Show relative time" checkbox.
Workaround for now:
localStorage.setItem("show_relative_time", "true")

Yes please! Going middle->smallest->largest is just weird.

how the fuck do I appeal bans after I get banned? I can't post in the meta threads over this issue and the mods here are pretty ban happy for the stupidest shit sometimes (even though I kind of get it in a way)


Evade your ban to post on /meta/.


I actually waited mine out to post just because I honestly did think I was posting too much.


>>6907 (OP)
There have been complaints about that previously >>6335 >>6412 Mods are somewhat autonomous so it can be difficult to adhere to standards. Solution is what >>6908 said, evade if necessary to clear up the problem.


Global bans should still let you post on /meta/ unless you have a /meta/-only ban.
