This is a containment thread for meta discussion that doesn't fall into complaints and suggestions. Feel free to tinfoil or talk about the state of the site but try to avoid being too autistic.

If cerbmin needs to hear it, post it here.

While we generally avoid over-moderating in /meta/, we are currently being regularly spammed by a handful of schizos from the lolcow hate thread on crystal.cafe, and we are deleting their posts here. If you are concerned about us censoring valid criticism, you are welcome to check that thread.

There have been a handful updates to embedding and file uploads:

  • mp4 files can now be uploaded
  • YouTube shorts links can now be embedded
  • TikTok links can now be embedded, but only using the long form of the URL (e.g. https://www.tiktok.com/@user/video/123456789012345)

In some cases, browsers with strict privacy settings will not allow TikToks to embed. This is not specific to this site, but a limitation of TikTok embedding in general. If you see a message indicating that an embed is not available, that is the most likely cause. As a fallback, in those cases the thumbnail will link to the video on the TikTok website instead of embedding it

No. 63743

Why are anons so unhinged? Doing porn isn't that big of a deal anymore, this is 2023. Most adults don't give a fuck, they just ignore it and don't talk about it. It's not like she hanging out with her neighbors and she can't get kicked out for having an OF like 20% of the resudents probably do.

I’ve been seeing more and more anons who are mobilefags not being able to embed YouTube videos. Pic related is the error.

Here’s a little guide that works, I think it’s an issue with YouTube tbh. Instead of pressing the share button and tapping copy link which doesn’t work when embedding on lc, do this roundabout way instead.
>open video
>press share
>do not press copy link, scroll and press the … (“more”) sign
>press … sign
>press copy

quick tl;dr of some of Raven's antics

>BPD "goffick" edgelord woman in her 40s

>has multiple failed marriages and has a son who later trooned out (that's a whole fun saga for later)
>moved to New Zealand from the states only to complain about the fast food
>married her son's best friend who was 16 at the time while she was in her 30s
>dozens upon dozens of claims that pretty much every man who ever looked at her raped her
>met some hick online and moved back from NZ just to live on his mom's couch
>grew up trailer trash and ended up back around at trailer trash
>faked having a baby to "own the haters" with a phone soundboard and fake crying sounds

There's far more and I'm simplifying MANY parts of this but she's such a classic unhinged cow. They don't make 'em like her anymore.

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.

Sharing information you have to go out of your way to find that gives personal information… Anon,I don't think you understand. Also there's the whole side of why is it being posted. If it is out of malicious intent, it can fall under doxxing. Just because the information is available doesn't mean you can't still dox them.

You're completely missing the point. Anons did this to Belle Delphine by spamming streets and different photos of her house and tried calling that "public knowledge". Doxxing isn't a one-size-fits-all. There are various ways to doxx someone. Posting public records isn't necessarily illegal though, if you are talking about arrests, but posting it can be unethical which could be why it was removed.

why are you using google? check the board the old thread was posted on (in this case /snow/) and go to the catalog.
