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.

No. 8724

nitpicking kids is gross, even if they're in the public eye

- 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.

Seconding this, there's a few threads on first page of this board that are clearly outdated, would love to see potential new banners instead

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

No. 8566

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

No. 8567

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!

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.

Use this thread to make new OC art for your favorite cows.
We want to encourage more OC content to the site without disturbing threads and annoying anons.
Be civil, don’t derail, spam low effort OC, or start arguments.
If you want to do redlines or redraws go to:

Board tan is also very encouraged.

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.

Why was the Technical Help & Feature Suggestions thread locked?

Second edition!

Please post all general issues and complaints here. If you want mods to do something, or have some issue with or suggestion for site content, you should use this thread.

>>2 should only be used for technical issues and suggestions (can't load site, site slow, bugs, site feature requests). This thread is for non-technical issues.
