We've run out of the traffic coming in from leftypol, and reddit is no option either.
This board is in the early stages of dying, and within a month it will be gone forever.
However, I know a way to save the site from death. We need to make contact with a leftist youtuber with a somewhat high subscriber amount (>10,000), and get them to promote the site. This is the only way to suck in a significant amount of people.

Personally, I think that finbol would be a good candidate (And I'll try and ask him to promote us) since he has already promoted leftist sites in the past. Email leftist youtubers that you think would promote us, and be prepared for a flood of new users.

THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE THE SITE FROM DEATH!

That's a good idea. Sadly, I don't really follow youtubers. It would also have to be someone who has the audience we'd want. And by promote, all they'd need to do is put a link to this site in the description.

Finbol would be good, since he makes good videos and he has already promoted online leftist groups. We would mostly get ML's if he did promote us though

EDIT: I messaged him and he replied saying that he would check it out. He has an account here now as well.

I think I'll make a video promoting the forum after a few days. I just posted 2 videos recently and I don't want to spam my subscribers with too much, otherwise some of them might miss it.
In the meantime I could promote the forum on my Discord server. We have 1800 members. Would that be good?

Yes, that would be great. I hesitate to promote this website myself (other than a thread on /leftpol/ and /leftypol/ each) because I don't want to be accused of 'shilling' and don't want to make it look I have an incentive to run/promote this site, economic or otherwise, besides wanting to have a place for leftists to talk, discuss and hang out.

Just please ask them to read the rules/guidelines: https://leftist.site/index.php?t=msg&th=32&start=0&a mp; and explain that we're trying to build a welcoming community that fosters discussion and growth of knowledge, rather than it being an arena for different ideologies/currents to fight it out.

Alright, its done. I think with the growth in membership the usual ideological differences will arise inevitably but lets try to keep things as productive as possible.
