Venus Angelic thread autosaged for nitpicking and lack of milk.

No. 11075

Discussion of specific numbers regarding BMI and eating disorders is now banned in the pro-ana scumbags thread.

No. 11164

Anyone ignoring admin message in the onision thread is getting a red-texted ban. We're not repeating ourselves.

No. 11179

No new rules have been created but we're cracking down on politics and racebait.
All discussion of race whether positive or negative is banned from /ot/ and /m/. Repeat offenders may be permabanned from these boards.

The USA thread is getting locked for violating the agreement that politics may be only discussed in pink-pill and gender critical.

No. 11242

After much discussion within the staff team, we have decided to lock the radfem thread. Please post in gender critical instead for the time being.

In the future, other problematic threads may be locked as well.

Just came to humbly suggest starting to hand out bans for "muh psychology studies." People blogging about their absolutely retarded half-finished bachelors degrees is literally never relevant - and so, so irritating.

No. 11902

It is a bannable offense on /pt/, /snow/, and /w/ regardless of sage. Report it if you see it.

No. 11903

is sperging about someone not being a cow against the rules? like, if you don’t think someone belongs here just report the thread instead of clogging it up with multiple posts white knighting them

No. 11904

Yeah, this is happening a lot in snow and it's really annoying, especially in the DDLG thread. If someone doesn't like a thread I don't see why they should keep clogging up the thread with posts about how it's not milky

No. 11905

Ok so. I am a dumbass, I did some digging.

Apparently lolcow is being blocked by my internet provider, which means it is currently blocked in Russia by our fucking "child protection" censorship laws, ha.
The blocked IPs from what I was able to glean seem to be and with a clear link to exactly one picture in /ot/src/1461589485236.jpeg which shows graphic self-harm which by our laws would be "suicide propaganda"

The exact error I am getting though is not the usual "blocked by your provider because of the laws blah blah", but the Firefox error MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT with cert assigned by the website that traces back to my internet provider.

It is just peculiar to the max, but well, we got some tumblt IPs blocked in the same bunch so that the website is entirely unusable now.

I doubt you can do anything about it, but well, just letting you know. These restrictions usually vary in time of them being rolled out from one internet provider to another, but you might notice a loss in your russian users. There's probably not that many of us and it all still works through vpn or tor (though every time I attempt to use tor, I get banned and vpns are incredibly slow), but still, a heads-up I guess.

No. 11679

We got a notice about this a week ago over some coldnessinmyheart imagery from years ago. The emails were all in russian so there wasn't anything I could do about it before it was translated but they only gave a 24 hour notice anyways.

No. 11688

There has been someone posting NFWS photos everywhere in lolcow with comments of “mod = n*ers” and other variety.

No. 11703

Yeah, I really don't know if you could have done anything about this, since the system is still very clearly broken even after being implemented for years.
Good to know they at least contacted you, but knowing they did it in russian makes me irked even more. Surely they must realise that russian is not a language people just… know. Finding people who can adequately translate from it is fairly hard too.
I wonder if tumblr got hit by the same thing and couldn't act in time.
This is honestly very shitty since most russian imageboards stay up and they post much worse shit daily.

But eh. At this point I am just sperging about what a backwards country this is.
Thanks for answering anyways!

I can leave a way to contact me in case you will need a russian translation in the future, but I don't really know if you can do anything once you're blocked.

No. 11858

Unless there hasn't been any post in tnds forum for like 5 days, I can't update it to new posts.

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.

>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

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.

Will there be a new General Complaints & Issues thread?

No. 11759

Is there anything we can do about the influx of altright idiots in the OT threads? You can tell it's the same person because they post a reaction image with every post.

why is everyone here so obsessed with saging? this board is slow enough without everyone saging every reply lol

No. 11756

For the drama boards such as /pt/, /snow/ and /w/ (but especially /pt/) it's kind of important to sage because users can hide saged replies and only read the actual milk/info that's in the thread. Saging on other boards isn't really important but I do it out of habit. Hope that answers your question

No. 11757

lots of bait posting still in the onion thread and anons still refuse to just leave the shit be

The Onion thread has gone full autistic. We could use a hellweek after all the sperging, derailing, and lack of sage happening on pt lately.

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.

I have been ambiguous about my gender up until now, but to prevent confusion, I'd just like to inform everyone that I'm male. (Every other staff member is female.)

I prefer to preserve my anonymity as much as possible, but it feels wrong when someone assumes I'm female and to not deny it, so I think it is best to let everyone know.

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.


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.


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.

Sage goes in the email field and keeps your post from bumping the topic. You use it when you have no milk to contribute. See #2 in this https://lolcow.farm/info

No. 10147

What does “been put to pasture” mean? I’m assuming a ban but for how long? Are there other terms for different lengths of bans?

No. 10841

The length of the ban varies. The wording of the redtext has nothing to do with the length. Sometimes the redtext tells what the ban is for (blogpost, nitpicking, self post, etc).

Also: Not all bans are redtexted.
