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.

I still have no understanding of what sage means….(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

No. 4707

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.

could someone enlighten me on the stigma behind namefagging? i definitely respect the practice but i wonder why the name field exists if we are discouraged from using it. if anonymity is key then wouldn't it be better to not have a name field?

why is everyone here so obsessed with saging? this board is slow enough without everyone saging every reply lol

No. 11756

For the drama boards such as /pt/, /snow/ and /w/ (but especially /pt/) it's kind of important to sage because users can hide saged replies and only read the actual milk/info that's in the thread. Saging on other boards isn't really important but I do it out of habit. Hope that answers your question

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.

I have been ambiguous about my gender up until now, but to prevent confusion, I'd just like to inform everyone that I'm male. (Every other staff member is female.)

I prefer to preserve my anonymity as much as possible, but it feels wrong when someone assumes I'm female and to not deny it, so I think it is best to let everyone know.

I know the milk is drying up in the Onision thread but anons have taken that opportunity to clog it up with Lainey talk and it’s annoying as hell.

She’s boring and it’s the same stuff that’s been talked about for months. Ew, she’s ugly. She’ll never transition. She’s so boring no wonder Greg hates her. Greg will leave her if she gets top surgery.

I can’t take one more boring repetitive post about her.

No. 11423

The Onision thread is kind of out of control. Half.. ok maybe that's a bit much… a quarter of the posts in there are non-contributory and should never have been made. ie. no one gives a fuck on how all this milk is making you feel, speculation without reasoning or argumentation, newfags bringing up OLD ASS topics that have been done to death (what kind of military discharge. credit to the oldfags who didn't beat that horse to death… again), posts that only reference other posts in the same thread that don't contribute. Can you just like wag your finger at them or something?

No. 11667

Hi mods and admin.

I have a suggestion. The onision thread sometimes gets bait and spam from people trying post fake screenshots and updates.

Would it be an idea to have a locked "verified content" thread that contains only images and updates that have been verified to be true and legit, and maybe with a level of scrutiny so only the most interesting stuff gets archived?
This way, people can easily look up stuff, without having to risk taking bait, or us unknowingly feeding trolls. If its too much work, then whatever. It's just a suggestion. But I think it would help against the motivation to keep trolling the thread, as there's no way (hopefully) that troll content could get inside a verified thread.

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.

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.
