Don't worry about nitpicking, making a report is the best way of getting things like that shut down.

>Are there temporary bans when new users make it obvious they never even bothered to lurk?


No. 3947

Just clarifying cause I don't want to be a total douche reporting, can things be reported because they're just stupid shit? The rules don't say so but it is pretty spammy at the same time.

No. 3948

Yes, I have done so and a farmhand has appeared in the thread to caution the anon against further shitposting, derailing or low-quality efforts. Always type in a reason for your report and report multiple instances together so farmhands can see a pattern right away.

No. 3951

Could people start spoilering the gross "#recovery!" images of sweaty, needle-embedded limbs etc in both the munch/spoony and pro-ana scumbag threads and like, anywhere else? I'm not """triggered""" I just don't want to see that shit. I enlarged one not realizing what was depicted in the thumbnail and was not thrilled to get an eyeful of a slipshoddily taped IV lodged in weird bruised forearm

No. 3952

I usually report these and use the reason 'needs a spoiler'. I've seen some of them become spoilered later. Agree they are terrible images even when they are not that gory.

Click here to take the survey

We've created a survey regarding recent board changes, mostly the /b/ and /g/ merge as well as /sty/. Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback so we may continue to improve the board. Thank you. (After the award survey is done, we'll make an announcement about this one.)

A nice, cosy, official banner thread to submit your new banners for the benefit and expansion of the website.

Banners must be 300x100

Banners should mention the site directly or indirectly. "lolcow.farm" written, a picture of a cow, etc.

Submitting some OC.

Town Hall will be held at 6 pm CST
(sorry for the inconvenience; if anyone shows up at 4 we can just watch YouTube videos for a while)

Our first Town Hall meeting since the departure of OG admin-sama

Our Farmhands will be there and the plan is to discuss any main concerns and ideas that farmers have. One topic of discussion will be the possible removal of the /manure/ board so if you have an opinion on this matter then try to attend. Additionally, we will elucidate recent site events of interest.

The meeting will be at http://cytu.be/r/lolcowTownHall
This Thursday, October 6th at 4 pm 6 pm Central

>A lot of farmers and admin were sick of seeing her dumb threads cropping up.

I don't get this logic, if you don't like a thread just scroll past it..

Yeah and besides if the threads that were mostly nitpicking and stuff most of the threads here would be locked.

No. 3399

I agree. There's a few threads I don't care for and I have them hidden because that's what that function is for?

Someone asked about posting statistics.

Here's a line graph of all posts per week for /pt/ up until today. As you can see, post rate has been increasingly pretty steadily.

The post below is the same graph for /b/.

Here is the posting rate for /pt/ by day instead of by week.

As you can see, some days are much more active than others, with a few large bursts recently.

No. 795

File: 1433471035938.png (42.79 KB, 1327x367, posts_per_day_b.png)

And here is /b/'s post count per day.

The past 1-2 days are showing a decrease in the recent huge burst in activity, meaning the exponential-like growth seen in the weekly view probably will not hold.

Can you share any info on number of unique posters?

No. 804

Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get accurate statistics of unique posters. Especially with widespread use of mobile devices, one person may rotate through 2-30 IPs over the course of a year.

I've set up a chat page. The code is derived from CyTube (http://cytu.be) with minor modifications. You can talk about whatever you want and share videos.

You do not have to register an account to chat. Registration is optional. You only need to register if you want to make a channel or want to reserve a certain name.

The official chat channel is http://chat.lolcow.farm/r/meta.

Users can create their own channels by registering an account and clicking Account -> Channels. The owner of a channel becomes a moderator of it, and can ban or mute people from it. Channel owners are free to enforce their own rules as long as none of them conflict with lolcow global rules. However, in cases of extreme power hunger, drama, or overzealous moderation, I reserve the right to take control of a channel and appoint a new owner.

I will likely embed a channel (with video removed) into some part of the chan in the near future, to function as an inline chat box.

Please discuss chat issues and suggestions in this thread. I threw the color scheme together pretty quickly and don't like it that much, so I would appreciate style suggestions. If you want, you can adjust the CSS values yourself with Chrome developer tools (F12 on Windows, Cmd + Alt + I on OS X) and tell me the exact changes you'd like to see.

Please also suggest new emotes. Emotes can be based on images of any size, but they're downscaled to 120x120 in the emote list page and 85x85 in the chat, so crop images as much as you can and make sure they look good at 85x85. Ideally they should be 120x120 or larger.


New channels are private by default. Go to Channel Settings -> Admin Settings to set a password or to make it public.

To use an emote, click Emote List and press one of the buttons, or type the emote name surrounded by colons. :cow: is one example.

Message styling is the same as the ones valid for lolcow.farm (see >>2). So **bold** (bold) and #<3 (♥) work. The ones in the CyTube guide here work as well, but _ and * are italics and ** is bold: https://github.com/calzoneman/sync/wiki/CyTube-3.0-User-Guide#default-formatting

Full documentation can be found at https://github.com/calzoneman/sync/wiki/CyTube-3.0-User-Guide.

just pointing out the irony of saying 'nobody is interested in sustaining a chat' when the evidence clearly proves otherwise.
maybe all we needed was a clearer banner for the chat. maybe it was the environment. at this point, it's hard to say without a controlled test.

No. 2531

So fucking late Quite honestly, I'm very inters ted in a regular chat channel but A) I'm too fucking shy B) I'm working so it doesn't fit with the chat times C) Beyond being shy I'm kind of flakey so I cant always guarantee being available for chat. Other than that I would LOVE to chat with all of my fellow farmers. But I am trash. :(

So what happens to the chat? Will it ever be up again in the future or is it taken down officially…

No. 3496

I've found a site called Livebunker.rocks that's kind of like a real-time imageboard that's basically abandoned that we could take over.

Other than that, there's always IRC channels if someone wanted to set one up on Rizon or similar.
