that thread is the only one i think the moderation has gone too far on. otherwise, i think the changes have been good too. splitting snow and w into two boards did slow them down a bit, but it really helped give both boards a better sense of identity. i'm hoping the extra moderation doesn't scare too many people off - even lower-quality posters are necessary to keep a conversation going sometimes. having a totally dead thread "until milk happens" is unfeasible.

If the Munchie thread is allowed, is medfagging that pertains to the discussion allowed?

Ember and whoever else was on the old rule's list of prohibited subjects?

>**PNP thread is locked though


Isn't that in effect a ban?

No. 10033

>>10031
Every month threads are split among the janitors and mods, it's about one mod per /pt/ thread and maybe two for some /snow/ threads.
The only people getting frequently banned are the samefags that keep ban evading.
Certain members of staff can only see two boards, so not all staff can moderate /pt/.
>>10032
If I remember, it was locked a second time because users complained about the thread. I can unlock it if people really want to talk about her but we know how that went last time.
Munchies are fine and medfagging is fine as long as it is relevant. The line is crossed when it becomes blogging.

Hellweek will begin April 15th to April 22nd. Posts made during this week will receive extra scrutiny and moderation will increase. However, this is not applicable to posts before or after hellweek. Boards unrelated to drama will not be participating so there's no need to worry about moderation changes there.

Examples of trends and behaviors to be targeted:
∙ Spamming low effort images
∙ Spamming social media statuses with no context
∙ Blogging and inserting your personal life into the discussion
∙ Derailing threads to uphold your politics or personal beliefs
∙ Unwarranted/emotional overreactions
∙ asking to be spoonfed
∙ extreme and abnormal nitpicking
∙ posting in a way that indicates you're new to lolcow.farm

All rules listed on https://lolcow.farm/rules still apply, but are not the primary focus. The goal is to purge as many newfags as possible while improving the overall posting quality.
Ban lengths for the listed behaviors may not exceed 1 week. Ban lengths for everything else may not exceed 4 days.

Please post any questions, suggestions, or concerns in this thread. General complaints stay in the general complaints thread.

I talk about moving Moomoos thread full of nitpicking and sperging and the first thing you do is start another tax fight in another thread.
Canadianfag here i had no fucking clue there was state AND federal income tax so yah my bad. But you completely missed my point further proving the exact behaviour thats been going on in the momokun thread for 3 months.

"Stop fucking talking about taxes stop sperging about her cats reeee" meanwhile every second day the same topics come up over and over again. Its filled with mini mods and derailers with some ugly badly photoshopped pictures in between.

No. 10016

>>10015
You could have googled before assuming that, though? And where's the tax fight? Correcting you isn't fighting.

I think the staff has been pretty good at staying on top of the issues in Moo's thread. People have been getting banned for legit nitpicking which is a huge difference from before the new admin came on board.

>tfw it turns out angry anti-taxfags don't even wtf we're talking about when we're tinfoiling

the thread isn't bad when people speculate, what kind of site do you think this is? speculation draws out discussion and then it's even better when it turns out to be the truth (much like the lipo) i can get behind not wanting tinfoil like moo being a pedo, even though she probably is, cause that's heavy stuff, but speculation is good, especially for lurking cows, the end up dancing for us.

No. 10018

>>10008
I honestly think that autosage and moving threads to /snow/ solves nothing. It's a lazy punishment when the moderation doesn't know how to handle undesirable behavior. We're not as understaffed as we were in January so there's no reason to move the moo thread.
All threads have nitpicking. The nitpicking I want to curb has to be extreme or repetitive. The moo thread has been pretty good about it ever since I implemented the fat ban.

I think wanting to curb on a legitimate conversation about taxes is unfair. Speculation can be fun and it can have legitimate reasoning behind it. Tinfoiling becomes tinfoiling when it reaches the verge of fanfiction.

Speculation has been an effective tool in the onision, shay, and TND threads; and I'm only referencing instances from the past year.
If you think there is a problem with a few posts, report them.

No. 10019

The tax fanficcing is annoying as shit but I'd much rather see it than the cat autism and absolute clown tier blogposting nitpick reachers that used to dominate the thread and tried to make a comeback during her trip to Japan.

Excuse my autism, but I've noticed posters sometimes seem to mix up the following terms. I see this on other websites, too. This is understandable, since the terms are vague and not widely known.

These are subjective to some degree, but here is how I personally define them.

Samefagging

This is a general term for deceptive posting. It can mean the following things:

- Taking on more than one persona in a thread to make it seem like your view has wider support than it actually does. This is also called sockpuppeting. May involve replying to your own posts agreeing with yourself, or significantly changing writing style to make it seem like a different person is also giving similar positive or negative remarks. Particularly dedicated samefags may try to use a different IP address as well.

- Making multiple posts back-to-back, without obvious indication they were all made by you. This is not always deceptive, though is often annoying.

- May also apply to general false or omitted self-identification. For example, if the subject of a /pt/ thread started secretly and anonymously posting in her own thread to disagree with people or defend herself, this may also be called samefagging. There may be a better term for this, but if there is, I'm not yet aware of it.


Self-posting

Posting about yourself in any way, whether anonymous or self-identifying. For example: posting a picture of yourself, linking to your own profiles, giving excessive details about your life, etc. Self-posts are completely acceptable in some threads and some contexts, but they usually are frowned upon otherwise. You shouldn't try to make yourself stand out on an anonymous board. Valid spellings also include self posting and selfposting.


Vendetta / vendettafag / vendetta-posting

Posting about someone as if you are a random person who happens to dislike them, when in reality you have some sort of personal connection or grudge. Often involves samefagging. Generally has no relation to self-posting, except in cases of self-victimization. In cases where you present the chan with an implicit or explicit "call to action", to further your vendetta, this is also called a personal army (PA) request. It often involves misleading or deceptive information.

An example of a vendetta post would be arguing with a girl on social media, and later posting a thread calling her a whore. Asking people to send things to her parents, or falsely claiming she's violated some site's terms of service and requesting people report her, or including her address and phone number in the post, would be a vendetta post as well as a personal army request.

It's been a very long time since the community has gotten together to discuss the site and changes. I think it's about time to fix that so I've scheduled a townhall as seen on the announcements.The townhall chat is scheduled for Monday, February 4th, at 9 AM JST via cytube (a link will be posted).

I don't plan on rescheduling the projected date because it's futile to try to meet everyone's preferred time frame. Anyone that can't make it will be able to read a recap in this thread.
Please use this thread to bring up points of discussion you would like to bring up at the townhall.

Since the rule has been applied so unevenly, yes, it needs to be clarified.

Were you in the town hall? What Admin said there seemed contradictory, and the chat was going by so fast not everything was addressed.

>image laws


As in copyright or ownership of the image itself or rights of personality and publicity in countries such as Germany?

>Parents have rights over their child's photos.


Over photos and video taken by others?

No. 8719

>>8718
Admin kind of basically said don't post stuff that would get you in trouble.

The site is in USA so the laws are USA laws. In the USA there are laws against "harassing" children and using their pictures for things other than their intended purpose or without the parent's permission. Parents have the right over their child's image unless they consent to it being used publicly. So even if someone posts their kid on IG it's a real grey area. Child stars don't have the same rights as a celeb's kids who aren't child stars.
