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.

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.

banners don't get withdrawn since they're part of cow history. eg. the old one with Raven's ex-childbride Logan is still up too.

We're looking for janitors (low-level farmhands) and people with Linux or web dev experience.

If you're interested in helping out, introduce yourself ITT and write a few sentences about how you can help. If we're interested, we'll contact you through a temporary ban message.

How many users?

I feel like you might be taking advantage of the Anonymous feature of image boards by not having any indication of actual user activity.
There's no way to know if you're replying to one crazy pretending to be multiple people, or if there is actually any interest in a thread.

Considering the entire purpose of this site is to identify autistic internet antics, perhaps including a 4chan like replies/images/posters would be beneficial to certain threads. Or even a user id.

Also ps: finding threads here sucks it's so difficult.

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.

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.

No. 10311

Will there be a new General Complaints & Issues thread?

No. 11759

Need a new general complaints thread.

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.
