Mods should help /edu/ more. Move any thread that can be moved there. Like straight up take that shit on /edu/
It"s the only way of making it relevant.

/b/ was objectively better before the redirect, and it isn't necessary either.


without /b/ all this shitposting woud happen on /leftypol/ and this woud make /leftypol/ even worse


Mods should help edu


It was. /b/ is complete trash now except for the copypasta thread and a few more. Also it seems like radlibs and /pol/yps are constantly trying to colonize it.


We should only have /b/, /leftypol/, /edu/, /hobby/ and /meta/

b for shitposts, lefttpol for discussiong, edu as an archive, hobby should host tech, games, anime and music, and meta as it is

Where can I access the old & the new Matrix server?

>inb4 ban/moved to another board

FFS, I'm merely asking the userbase to provide basic info which was considered to be "standard service" before this Retarded split or whatever.

The incredibly based military junta ran by myself has decided on a number of reforms that will improve the way mods act and the way users are allowed to provide input to moderators.

Part of the thing that started this all was Zul taking a proposal to increase oversight of the mod team from some people in the matrix chat and implementing itself because he thought it was absolutely necessary for the team to continue functioning. We are going to implement most of those reforms, and some others aimed at resolving the differences in moderation styles that has been at the center of some of these conflicts.

For starters:

1. A new matrix room to replace lefypol congress will be put together with through vetting of the users in it, and in that room users will be able to directly vote and make suggestions to the mod team. The counterpart to this on the website will be /assembly/, which is the mod voting board. This board should be made open to the public and turned into a general suggestion and discussion bin while /meta/ is for more technical and specific issues regarding the site and moderation.

2. There will always be the potential of gridlock and drama in a mod team that is sharply divided, so whenever an issue that causes incredible opposition from half the team or even a minority of the team the first thing to do should be to poll the users and get input in the new matrix chat or the /assembly/ board. Input will also be requested for new admissions to the vol team and new vols might also be drawn from that matrix room.

The objective is to have an authentically user run management part of this website with a direct line to the vol team.

3. If all else fails and the opinion of the majority of the mod team seems to be sharply divorced from the opinion of the users, the matrix chat can simply vote on allowing a mod to override the rest of the mod team even if that mod is in the minority opinion. The watermelon military junta only happened because I and some others believed that the site itself was threatened by the degree of dysfunction in the mod team, and in the future overriding mods who like voting on things like this should have some basis in an established system.

most likely

no u


>there's now a third faction with Antinous
Any proof that this constitutes a third faction? Or has his allegiances been made clear prior to gaining this access now?

The problem with the site is that the staff believe they are above the rules, and this is because the rules are up to personal interpretation. The staff believe they are a superior clique above the userbase, and that this site should be moderated according to their will. In order to stop another staff chimp out you need to engage in a different set of policies or else this shit will happen again every now and then.

1.- Purge them every four-six months. Under no circumstances should the staff stay in power for over four-six months. This just causes them to power trip eternally. Create a better set of rules and make the staff police the site according to those policies, not according to personal interpretation.

2. They should be held accountable by the userbase, every ban should display who gave the user a ban and people should be allowed to discuss bans. That way people will be able to notice if a staff member is power tripping and can demand action against this person.

3.- The reason for a ban shouldn't be up to personal interpretation, the staff member should point out which rule the poster broke and it should be displayed in the ban notice.

4.- Do away with shitposts. At this point in time it is well known that certain shitposts are common occurance, create a general for those topics in /b/ and any post about these topics should be deleted and the poster should be directed there, some examples of these cyclical generals could be:
- The police question
- The nation/ethnicity question
- The religious question
- The race/IQ question
- Anything related to sexuality and gender

Logistically infeasible.
This is already the case.
Good luck writing specific rules, I'm sure you can do better than every human society that has tried and failed to do so in the past 10000 years. In reality, we do not need iron clad rules as long as there exists an appeal process which in theory, already exists (meta/element chat).
Sure why not


How is it infeasible? People can learn to moderate this site in an hour, it isn't rocket science.


did some people actually take the joke imageboard cultural revolution proposal seriously?


Humor on /leftypol/ is no laughing matter.


Agree with everything but point 4, these questions are popular because they are important and we shouldn't punish users, especially new ones for talking about them.

It's yet another time when the /pol/yps raid again. It's always in spurts of activity too so I doubt it's native users
Where the fuck do these people come from?

We need a purge.


It's not so bad when murica is asleep

how about you do your fucking job


Disc: I am Tetra4Anon, that Olympics thread poster back in Leftypol.
1) I need the mods to be reformed (put leftists instead of polturds)
2) All RW talking points must be banned AT FIRST GLANCE.
3) Ban Leninhat, Leftcom, and their accolades

You are failures of an administration team
You allow the same old liberal bait and copypasta to stay up time and time again until it gets 200+ replies
You allow unfettered /pol/ argumentum ad nauseum to run rampant on your website
You do not moderate your website beyond the bare minimum of removing spam
The pic related is you
You are weak and I hate you

i hate what you people did to this site and i hate the mods for indulging if not forcing this shit on the site at times


So how do you fix it?
Banning people responding to bait? Building an anti-bait meme culture?


best thing you could do is force BO back in 2017 to transfer ownership of /leftypol/ to somebody else


Have the mods utterly abdicated their duties? Why are there so many obvious low effort bait threads, slide threads, and inane reply fishing questions up? This is making old BO increasingly seem to be competent. And send the tanks into Siberia board, because it's gone to shit.


1. publicize the politics of the moderation team in its entirety
2. purge the rightists and recruit more mods among communists in their place
3. start curating content and make reactionary shitposting have actual consequences after its NOT SAGED but DELETED instead
4. start enforcing no idpol and no sectarianism rules with an iron fist
5. take an actually active role as moderators instead of being in effect nothing but the complaints department you have to in practice create a matrix account for because the report function is completely useless
6. fuck growth, fuck pph, fuck numbers since what chasing them has done is more harm than good for our community
7. bring the hammer down on /b/ by gassing the reactionaries and taking out their trash
8. bring the hammer down on the anti-/GET/ defamation which has zero evidence to back up the claim that it is a pedophile site or that it has pedophiles in its moderation, as the forced rumor goes
9. if soyjak.party does not behave or stop its raids, ban all soyjaks and delete the /soy/ general
10. go harder on OPs than regular posts, delete rulebreakers and sage non-rulebreaking bait or shitposts

just some ideas

Is it really just the same few retards who keep spamming their rightiod opinions in multiple posts to make it look like there are more of them than there actually is?
