Will the highlight text > click reply > highlighted text is quoted feature be fixed at some point? Whether it works or not seems to be down to pure chance.
Also please move the text in a bit on the reply box, I can't see where the | thingy is at the start of the line and it makes greentexting things a nuisance

It looks like quoting doesn't work if you're quoting multiple lines of text.


>No I mean it doesn't work in the thread half the time
When you click on the post number of the post with the highlighted text? I notice it doesn't work if I highlight >>6126 and then click 6128.

I can highlight the entire OP and it works. Firefox on desktop.


I notice highlighting the whole OP text, without selecting past the last line, it works, although it doesn't add a > after the new line…
Also, if I carelessly highlight the whole thing and go a little past the end, it doesn't work.
(No idea how that would be fixed…)


How do you spoiler?

What exactly counts as idpol? (or stupIDpol).

Are you talking about the site rules, or in general?




Identity politics essentializes identity without regards to the material relations underpinning it. At best, it assimilates identities within the realm of discourse and media (not economic autonomy and security!); at worst it incites intra-class conflicts.

As leftists, we fight for the free determination of all individuals and their full emancipation from oppressive power structures. The rights of individuals to live according to their own wishes is a fundamental part of leftism.

It is for this reason that identity struggles are a particular manifestation of class struggle and identity politics as such is the neoliberal recuperation of particular class struggles at the expense of the whole class struggle, and hence, essentially conservative. Being against identity politics does not mean that oppression based on personal characteristics does not exist, but rather that fighting for the emancipation of individual identities without a class character ultimately amounts to fighting for individual emancipation, rather than emancipating the group as a whole.

Instead, we advocate for the political organization of communities on the grounds of class analysis, class solidarity, to achieve political gains and protection now, with the ultimate goal of full emancipation of all the working class.


idpol is short for identity politics
what does this mean? We must examine the two words seperately. First, politics.
In this context, the context of idpol, politics means political stances, positions, and general dispositions towards the functioning of society.

Identity means exactly what it says, but what is identity? Identity is a self-reflection. Things are things, and identities exist when those things categorize themselves as that thing. It is important to note that identity is seperate from the thing. We are not idealists. Idealists hold that the idea of the thing is the thing, whereas materialists hold that things exist in themselves irrespective of notice, and that our awareness of things are seperate from the things themselves.

So taken as a whole, idpol is when your political position or general world view is based on the identity layer instead of the material layer.

This, in practice, manifests as sort of factional antagonisms. If you are on a 'team', that team becomes an identity, and thinking in terms of 'my team' about anything is a form of idpol. This means that even things that are not inherently idpol - things that can be shown to be based on real material reality - can be practiced as idpol if the person is conceptualizing their position from the standpoint of identitarian struggle.

this is often how it works out in practice. but the problem of idpol is deeper than just its effects, as idpol can also align perfectly with traditional marxist lines in the form of worker identitarianism. In practice, prior to socialism being accomplished, you would not be able to distinguish proper thought from worker idpol simply by looking at motivations and actions, you would have to examine the rationale of the individual to understand whether they are falsely being idealist and just happening to overlap.


Here's Zizek's view on identity politics from his recent appearance on the Low Society podcast.

TL;DR: bunkerchan is no more, any obligations newsanon or other anons had to consider for both sites are lifted.

I think many users sincerely don't get this what with jannies and co and there autism about bunkerfags.
It is easy if you did not visit it since migrating to inflect the idea that it was still being used actively but only by ex-pol, incels, stupidpol, everyone who thinks jannies are larpy retards, etc, etc. so it is kind of understandable we will have lots of opinions like >>6680

Can we get https://tv.leftypol.org/ on the top bar? We have like 5-10 times a month legit interesting streams on there.

Moreover, if the above could be done, could we have a LIVE logo pop up next to it when there's actual "habbenning" is going on on the cytube stream (e.g. Biden stream, protests, live debate between RDW and Destiny, etc.)

Thanks. I think it would be a really useful feature if we had a dancing red gif next to the /TV/ topbar if ongoing shit were being broadcast by us.


The cytube link leads to tv.leftypol.org?

if any of you guys have had any issues with the moderation staff and it being inconsistent as fuck in the past while then this may shine a light on that reason, because they're fighting over how to manage the site

>and want leftypol to be more like every other website they've destroyed
As someone not invested in drama I don't know if you're a schizo making shit up or the staff team is actually populated by uhh people from whatever websites you're claiming they come from.


No my point is that pro-idpol jannies would have perfectly fine communities that matched their views to go moderate if it wasn't for their views constantly trashing every website.
For example chapo.chat will ban you for downvoting trans posts, pronouns are mandatory, and there's a struggle session and drama at least every month. They wonder why their users are declining, and one of their users comes here to make this place "better".
It's not deliberate or a cabal or anything they're just fucking stupid people and they're everywhere.


>one of their users comes here to make this place "better".
Who and how?


Oh maybe it's not in this thread, I just read the actual one on /assembly/ because my internet was struggling with pics

<a: I sage when I don't want to bump a thread.


I wonder if sage not being noticeable in the default CSS plays a part in people not using it more often.


bunkerlike is the ubermench of themes


It's visible as a glowing name on the default (Dark Red), it's just that it's the same color.

Based, fuck web 2.0 for turning links into buttons and getting rid of underlined text.

Generals are boring and artificial. Cyclical threads are the cherry on top.
Organic threads about a concise topic that last however long they must are the way to go.


If we didn't enforce some generals, the catalog would be 75% threads about the latest US news, or the latest US vs China controversy.


A universal constant in imageboards is that users are scared shitless of the New Thread button, but have no issue clicking on New Reply.


>want to check on something that happened a few days ago on a cyclical thread
>it's already lost
I'd rather have General Thread #(number) than cyclical threads tbh


I like the other pictures of 40hara.

Are the sites going to merge now or not? Is the article even out? Someone explain the situation
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


the "article" promised by d0llars hasn't dropped so the jannies would be fools to accept now, that there will be literally no benefit. Part of me thinks it was a last minute prank to try to get on the mod team here. He's probably gonna throw in the towel after this after its apparent, i would be surprised if he still wants to keep paying for bunkerchan month after month to support like 50 posters who are remaining


Imageboards are cheap, especially small ones. You could host your average imageboard on a $10/year VPS.


I've heard that Dollars is paying much more than that, yes you could run a small board cheap but Dollars was probably hoping not to be a small board.


Honestly this whole shitshow is why we need some transparency with the mods. The thread on this was pretty heavily against Dollars bullshit yet all we heard was "we made a decision" from the mods without hearing anything. Im hoping they told him to go to hell but we will never know. inb4 more hidden drama causes another split.


Then he's fucking stupid for not sizing up when it happens.

Suggestion -allow more shitpost-y and /b/ like threads in /leftypol/ (things like hate threads, humor threads and more). This will atleast double statistics overall and give us a massive boost in posts and IPs. Please.

beg for it


Why would I beg for it? If jannies want this board to die and lose all their power? I'd just move to another lefty imageboard, if this one dies due to the jannies


Another thread where someone treats post statistics like the stock market.


those were the days when the old BO was running the site to the ground


No it was like 4 months ago

Hello everyone, we have indeed received an offer from d0llars about ending the split, in accordance with what he has laid out on Bunkerchan. Some of us mods are taking the offer seriously and think there is potential merit in it, however others are staunchly opposed to the idea of a reconciliation that would bring d0llars onto the team (along with a few Bunkermods). They have agreed to follow our constitution and to abstain from all voting for two months if they were to join, in return they would redirect Bunkerchan.net and Bunkerchan.xyz to leftypol.org.

We have been given more details about the event which d0llars believes will give Bunkerchan more exposure and we believe his account to be credible. We do not want to give too many details but essentially he has found a way to get a decent amount of exposure for the site, that will launch in a few days. If a deal is to be done it would seem best to get it agreed before this event occurs. However as I said, others reject the idea of any deal and there is no clear consensus on what to do as of yet.

Ultimately, this board belongs to all of you, so we would value your opinions on what we should do.

and 90% is retarded bullshit. Fuck off moron


>and 90 % is
Stop talking and start reading. Count the total number of statements, count how many of them you know to be true, count how many of them you don't know the status of, count how many of them you know to be false.
