You mean in the trump assassination bunker thread? I haven’t seen any derailing bans in the amerifag thread today. I’m assuming farmhands don’t want general political debate in the assassination thread since it’s about documenting the event and not politisperging

My tinfoil is that it's like the Shayna thread where some of the posters are disgruntled shoopers/ethots who are mad at the attention she gets.

No. 80490

They are bumping the thread on purpose, that's for sure. I wouldn't doubt one of the tiktok 'callout' videos were from the nonna and posting that all these people talk about skirby and hate her to try to blend in. It really feels that way.

The site will be going down for scheduled maintenance on the 29th March at 11:00 AM GMT.
We estimate the maintenance will take around 3 hours and the site will not be accessible during that time. If that changes, updates will be posted on our server status page which can be found here (this link is also available at the top of the page):

The purpose of the maintenance is to upgrade the server's OS and package versions in preparation for updates to the site software itself at a later date! The server OS version is currently 9 years old and considered legacy, and maintaining it has been a pain in the ass. When the upgrade is finished it should not affect the site in any way (except perhaps some small performance gains) but it will make further updates much less difficult for us.

No. 73963

The site maintenance is complete!
It took significantly longer than expected due to more issues and incompatibilities with the board software than anticipated. However, the upgrades were ultimately a success and this clears the way for migrating the site to new software in the future!

A new thread has been created for users to report any bugs that have been created as a result of the recent maintenance:

No. 74935

In response to the recent influx of CSAM posts, a new method of blocking CSAM posters has been added. There is a very small chance this may block and ban a legitimate post, if this happens to you please appeal your ban and email admin@lolcow.farm if the ban is not lifted within 24 hours.

No. 76428

The site was down for around an hour due to a widespread issue with our hosting provider, which has now been resolved.

No. 80575

Our host had networking issues which resulted in approximately 2 hours of downtime. Unfortunately, this was an issue with the host and not something we could have prevented. If they continue to have issues, we will consider moving hosts.

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.

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.

Accusing an anon of being the subject of a cow thread

No. 79400

What the other anon said, or it could also be for posts where the anon is writing a personal letter to the cow. I.e., posting on the Jill thread saying stuff like "Wow Jill you are an obnoxious liar reee I hate you so much Jill!"

No. 79440

untrue. those get redtexted as "fan letters". hi cow is always implying/stating a cow made the post in question, not being addressed

No. 79675

Not as I understand it. You get the (hi cow) ban if you reply, like, "Hi, Jill." to a post in Jill's thread because you think it's Jill selfposting. you are not supposed to say Hi, [cow], just report the selfposting if you suspect it, that's why the ban. I admit to thinking it was what you said when I first came here and I wonder why a farmhand never banned me for using the report system wrong (thanks farmhands)

No. 80304

Does it count as personalityfag if someone asks for a resource ("how to perform X action") and I provide it by linking to a tutorial post I made myself in some other social media? Am I supposed to pretend the post doesn't belong to me and shill myself? That would prevent me from answering any follow up questions so I'm uncertain what's the recommended course of action here.

I'm sorry it had to come to this. I've tried my best since coming on board as admin but the honest truth is that I underestimated the work it takes just to keep lolcow running, not to mention the intensity of raids this year. I thought I could get it done while dealing with my job and personal life too but I was wrong and had to realise that I can't give this community what it needs. A lot of volunteers have stepped forward, so I'm positive that we'll find a great new team. If you want to apply as admin or moderator, email administration@lolcow.farm or join the discord linked in the navigation bar. The hidden board can be accessed through there now since there were complaints about the posting traffic.

The migration to an updated software is still most likely going to proceed, but for now our focus is to find a new admin and more farmhands. Timezones outside of North America will get priority.

This stands as a tribute to how far this place has fallen.
Gc and terf shit was always banned BEFORE oldmin precisely because … gestures vaguely at the state of the site That and sperging about moids instead of concentrating on milk and cows.
Most people hated oldmin for a whole lot of reasons but the stuff about boohoo muh gendershit is 100% retcon retardation. There was a handful of obsessive autists who desperately wanted to make this place manhate / gc. It didn't work so they went and made their own board. It lasted a while and is now basically the same half dozen spergs checking in. So they came back here and went back to harrassing staff until they finally got what they wanted.

No. 79389

It's funny how there's always at least one perpetually victimized anon on /meta/ insisting that lolcow has fallen because of manhate and gender criticism. Why would you want to coddle male/tranny feelings this hard? Are you personally affected? Men and their actions specially troons can be as cowish as anyone else. Cope harder.
