There isn't currently a thread for minor notices and changes to the site. For full transparency this will be a thread to inform you all of any updates or changes that aren't necessarily worthy of an big announcement.

four days late to respond and also missed the townhall, but I was thinking if we really wanted the weeb shit out of ot we could do a board for fandom shit in general, so it includes anime, kpop, western cartoons, movies and shows, etc. That way people won't be triggered about the name, there's enough variety to warrant an entire board for it all, and it's separated. I think keeping w for cows who are weebs is perfect tbh, and I'm actually liking how it's set up now that ot threads are out of it.

I know this is probably too late but it's just an idea i dunno!

No. 8712

Can it be changed that only staff can post in this thread and questions concerns complaints about updates in the regular complaint thread? I think meta in general could use some tidying

- we found a new admin based on the applications that were sent in. She has been a lolcow user from the start and we are confident that she'll be a great leader. She'll start sometime during January.

- the new admin will use the applications to pick her own mod team. Whether or not current mods stay will be up to her.

- once the new admin is officially owner of the board, she will move to a new server provider which should offer better performance and fewer concerns about takedowns.

- we have chipped in together to upgrade the current server for the remainder of time before the switch so that lolcow can run smoothly until the new admin takes over.

Sorry for the wait and all the open questions. I'm just posting to share an announcement, the rest will be worked on once the admin is with us.

Will you be taking applications any time soon? I would love to try my hand at being a janitor or volunteer in some way.

they just held applications 3 months ago unless you're that new

Not a newfag; just happen to have more free time now than I did previously. I just figured you can never have enough people cleaning, organizing, and keeping watch.

No. 8589

I was wondering the same thing, I wanted to all the past few months but didn’t have time until recently to do it, and now applications are closed. They probably will sometime in the future but I’m not sure about when or how soon.

Hope we can though!

>I think you guys just got used to being able to nitpick moo's facial cleanser choices and obesity without repercussions.

I know you're currently getting shit on for putting the kibosh to the Moo nitpicking, but kudos to you because you're absolutely correct. People in that thread were getting so obsessed they sounded like mentally ill cows themselves. I hope one day /pt/ will be readable for me again.

No. 8959

Please ban this person.


No. 8961

This. The bans and strict moderation in the momo thread is justified, the boob vein a-logs there got so used to Dakota stan level nitpicking it just ruined the threads for everyone and made all the posters look like autistic nutjobs. The fanficcing about her got so out of hand that I'd rather have people be banned for constant "speculation" (ridiculous tinfoiling) than let everything pass. The people currently screeching about jnig taking a hand selfie with her sound like all those obsessed jealous thots on twitter constantly "burning" momo with regurgitated milk for social media clout. Momo does enough awful shit on her own, you don't have to make up stuff.

No. 8962

Terrible admin/mod team on this site, it's pretty much dead because people get banned for having discussion. There's no back and forth between users because of the absurd "derailment" bans, only certain opinions are allowed and encouraged and everything else seems to be shot down by both the mods and the mini mods, and banning nitpick on a website full of women bitching about other women is retarded and a guaranteed way to bury the site. Dead site, dead threads.

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.

It looks like 4 new banners were added! Yay admin-sama! But honestly, there are so many others that should be added like
Shouldn't some of the no longer relevant banners be removed to allow space for newer ones? Not sure if it's harder to show too many banners

Yes, but thanks for the hurr newfag shit.

Most imageboards aren't as anally moderated and rule-heavy as lolcow. For a site so obsessed with controlling post quality it's strange not to be more transparent about bans.

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.

*image laws

Not internet ffs.

No. 8718


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

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.

I asked because I've seen all of the examples in >>8686 both redtexted and deleted (even memes and stock images) and not despite being reported like >>>/snow/755698. Anons in the Celeb thread have asked for clarification. And look at the ban that happened in the Mommy Vloggers thread for asking for clarification, yet the pics and videos remain.

I'm looking into the issue and for a way to restore some of the images since clicking for an image link says "file deleted". The dressup thread has it the worst right now so you guys have permission to make a new thread if you want.

Summarizing tonight's Townhall:

- A new team of moderators and janitors has been hired and is working hard to keep lolcow clean. Staff has an all-new moderation guide with specific ban reasons and times. Bans increase with a factor of 2 for repeat offenses in succession.
- A posting guide for new users will be added in order to integrate them more efficiently rather than filling up threads with attempts to alienate or teach them.
- Users are encouraged to use the reports system to let staff know privately if they agree with moderation decisions (public ones like warnings). This is a way for us to (under consideration of bullshit reports and bias) keep tabs on which moderators reflect the community.
- Posting new threads on /pt/ will be restricted to staff members. For thread continuations, a warning will be posted once a thread has reached 1100 posts (100 posts before bump limit).
From that point, users can submit summaries of recent drama and thread OP pics to a dedicated thread. Staff will then post a continuation thread. Recently, continuations have been missing social media links and summaries, so we'll try this as a solution.
- Posting new threads to /snow/ will be aided by a new post form (pic related). Until the form is installed, a post template will help new users make decent quality threads.
- Race and trans wank will be reduced to one thread each in /ot/ which will be put on autosage.
- Proposed: In times of zero milk, when a thread is mostly speculation, it could be put on autosage until a moderator undoes this when there's fresh drama.
- Nitpicking, armchair psychology, and absolutely baseless speculating must be saged and kept under control. Endless tinfoiling about e.g. Taylor's or Dakota's income or specific shade of hair color must stop and will be punished.
- Hellweek starts tomorrow. This means strict moderation and lots of temporary bans.
- For example, all posts that only consist of "hi [cow]" or "lol" or "underrated post" will be removed and punished with a short ban.
- Taking bait is now a bannable offense unless saged and kept to minimal interaction.
- The Chatango box, although requested as an alternative to Discord, seems unpopular and has been voted to be removed.
- Incel threads will be banned until farmers learn not to lure them to lolcow by attentionwhoring in their communities.
- Zero tolerance for male posters who identify themselves in their posts or otherwise fail to fly under the radar.
- Ember's thread will be put on autosage. You can keep posting in it, but don't make a new one.
- /sty/ and /cream/ will be removed.

Feel free to make further suggestions or post your feedback on any of the above.
