Got a ban for the following reason: Look at the date before reporting.

Is it not allowed to report a very old thread even though it just got revived and (I think) the subject breaks the current rules? Should I have reported one of the new posts instead? Just wondering, so I don't get a ban next time.

No. 5824

the soundclout thread has a ridiculous amount of either newfags or self posters. I mean, it always has but it seems especially bad lately.

I've been reporting the posts but it needs a fucking nuke of bans or something. I get the feeling a lot of them are all a single self-posting user as they have some pretty telling habits (unsaged, text-speak, often WKing/in defense of the subjects, or just mind numbingly stupid replies/misunderstandings to anything that might be perceived as criticism against a subject of the thread, etc.

Seconding this request, we have some major thread shitting up going on, plus gruesome death pics and videos that we don't need or want. Can we get an emergency auto-sage?

As announced here >>>/meta/4372

Relevant changes:
> Minors can be posted about as long as they're 16+ and their full legal name isn't mentioned. First names are okay.
> Doxxing is no longer allowed.
I know some people will disagree with this, but please consider that we never allowed or encouraged cowtipping anyway, so the information gives cows and unintegrated users ammo and invite vendettachans without being of much value to threads. Most of it can be found online anyway.
> Absolutely no more posting of family members by name or picture.


I have updated the rules and put together a usage guide for new posters. I'd like to thank the many farmers who contributed to this <3
I hope this update reflects the board and its issues.

See the new rules here and the usage guide here.

I can no longer access this site when using mobile data.

I always get 'connection lost' or something in regards to me having no internet connection.
It's fine when I use Wi-Fi but n it mobile data. The site doesn't seem to be blocked by my mobile provider as I could access it on data up until a few months ago and if it were blocked by them I'd be told that.

Every other site of this type works fine it's just lolcow that doesn't.

Anyone know why? How can I fix this?

No. 5796

Suggestion for a "submit report" and/or "are you sure you want to delete your post?" prompts to help with preventing accidental reports & deleting. Probably annoying at the beginning, but best to prevent missclicks rather than having to go through captcha

there's already an accident prevention measure in place for both things, the little tick box.

There have been a couple of changes over the past few months and we believe there is always room for improvement. We've taken the time to apply a few changes to the current rules. Global rules apply to all boards and now specific rules will only apply to /pt/ and /snow/ respectively. The rules page will be better formatted soon, in the meantime read the rules when you have the chance. Here are some of the major changes.

Global Rules:
•derailing on any board is a bannable offense
For example, taking bait from robots on /ot/ or derailing Onision threads by nitpicking Lainey's ring for days
•Using lolcow for attention or profit is a global offense
For some reason some people seem to think advertising doesn't fall under this. To that person, stop advertising your loli discord server.
•Abusing the reporting system can now warrant a ban
This isn't that much of a problem but do take the time to read through this.

Rules for /pt/ and /snow/:
•mini-modding is now an official ban offense
•The definiton of cow-tipping has been expanded (the most important change)
Do not alert a subject to their thread or take any other action to lead them to lolcow.farm (cowtipping).
∙Do not contact a subject's family/ friends/ etc.
∙Do not use lolcow.farm to crusade against a cow (not your personal army).
∙Do not organize raids on twitter, twitch or other social media.
∙Do not brag about or announce having personal contact or interactions with a cow unless you're also delivering newly obtained or confirmed information.
•Rule 8 " The use of sage in /snow/ does not permit a violation of the rules stated above."
For example, saging does not give you an excuse to blogpost.

In other news, we have stumbled upon a Patreon with various entertaining perks. This Patreon does not under any circumstances whatsoever in any way, shape or form help us cover the fees of running lolcow, as such a thing would be frivolous and quite frankly tasteless. We would never support the notion of crowd-funding the new, more expensive server we moved to.

I've been discussing some potential changes with my fellow staff members and would like to make some bigger changes to lolcow. I'll also reintroduce regular townhalls, approximately once a month. They will take place on an independent chat platform, you will not have to use our Discord server for it.

The townhall chat has been rescheduled for Sunday, February 18th, at 6 PM EST. Announcements and chat links will be posted on lolcow, tempcow and discord half an hour before we start.

I'd like to get as much input as I can, but if you can't make it, there will be a summary on lolcow afterwards.

But remember, anon, in the townhall chat Admin said that not all posts found in violation of the rules would be marked with red text. Whether your reports achieved anything is not for you to know.

Hi everyone,

here's the place to discuss everything around our recent decision to move Off-Topic discussion of Onision threads to a dedicated Tempcow thread to allow users to chat and nitpick without clogging up the main thread.

This has led to some user complaints about the main thread being too strict and mean-spirited towards users who bring new information. Obviously we will work on improving moderation to get the backseat modding under control, but I'd also like to give you a space to discuss what you think of the separation in the first place now that the changes have been in place for a while.

I think admin should just make a thread on /snow or /pt for onision related sperging and keep it open since temp is not coming back.

As long as it doesn't turn into a 'I miss temp' thread I feel like it could work to satisfy both the users who want to sperge AND the ones who don't want to scroll thru all of the opinions.

No. 5549

Why should they cater to them, though? Other cow spergs don't get to have special treatment so why should the Onion ones?

>>5493
what's with the vix vilification? temp was dominated by vix while vixmas was happening, of course it would be since it was the only milk flowing at that time.

some farmers might have gone to temp for vix, to ask her questions etc, but the ones that stayed did because they liked the ambiance.

No. 5551

Lol this thread is more active now than the Onion thread.

Basically Mods fucked up twice… first of all they drove people to Temp by being shit… and now they've killed that too in the vain hope of reigniting main.

Honestly they should just swallow their pride and reopen temp. The flow of chat was great there and it made a non-milky time entertaining. There was absoluely no need to change things other than mods being autistic and wanting everything in one place.

No. 5552

There is no longer a need for this thread to be open, we have stated tempcow will not be returning. For anyone who just checked in, read admins post explaining why we made this change

We're back! Please leave all feedback regarding the temporary site in this thread. Thank you!



Previous Announcement:

The site will be down starting September 1st due to planned maintenance by our hosting provider. It should be back by September 3rd, however it might take a little longer and we can't guarantee a specific date! Unfortunately, the length of our provider's downtime is out of our hands.

During the downtime, lolcow.farm will load a temporary site you can post on. The temporary site will still be readable once lolcow is back, but posts on there won't be migrated back to lolcow so you may have to manually repost things or summarize them. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The temporary site is already up under https://temp.lolcow.farm for you to get used to.

Due to the short notice we received from our hosting provider and the (hopefully) short downtime window, I decided a temporary imageboard might be a better idea (and less work) than setting up a new server with lolcow's current configuration and transfering hundreds of gigabytes over to it all for something we would close in a few days anyway. Plus, this provides us with an opportunity to experiment with alternative board software and fun new features for users to play with.

Please don't be alarmed by some of its new features. If you find any of them useful or would like to keep them long-term, please post your feedback in this thread. Thanks!

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.

Samefagging

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.


Self-posting

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.

Hello everyone, I'm your new admin!

Regina has been showing me the ropes for the past few weeks and finished transferring everything to me.

I've made a new discord, anyone who wants to join can do so at https://discord.gg/J6zJuXV. You don't need a discord account to join, and there is no longer any verification process.

If you are interested in being a janitor or moderator for the site/discord, please apply here: https://lolcow.typeform.com/to/zD7ZD8

I plan on issuing a survey in the next couple of days to see what direction we want for the site. I want to generally have stricter moderation to cut down on nitpicking of snowflakes and off-topic posts. This will remain a place for free speech, however I'd like to improve the general quality of posts, if possible.

Thanks, and please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

I don't see why the banner should be removed just because the relationship is in the past. It's still part of lolcow history and we don't prune content. It's not necessary, but it's not a case of something that should be removed because it's against our rules.
