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!

Apologies if this isn't the correct thread, but tempcow is currently down and I was wondering if you knew when it would be back up. I've been periodically refreshing and still not up. Thank you!

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.

wow, I didn't know that. I thought it was sage, as in the ritual, in which you burn sage (the herb) in your home to clear the bad energy.

speaking of sage. can someone tell me honestly HOW to sage? people keep yelling "learn to sage!!" then never telling anyone how to. then making fun of the people trying to figure it out. thank you.

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

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.

Can the admins share the news that screenshots on insta aren't visible by the poster? This helps keep the milk flowing. Snapchat still definitely does.

***UPDATE***
Town Hall will be held at 6 pm CST
(sorry for the inconvenience; if anyone shows up at 4 we can just watch YouTube videos for a while)

Our first Town Hall meeting since the departure of OG admin-sama

Our Farmhands will be there and the plan is to discuss any main concerns and ideas that farmers have. One topic of discussion will be the possible removal of the /manure/ board so if you have an opinion on this matter then try to attend. Additionally, we will elucidate recent site events of interest.

The meeting will be at http://cytu.be/r/lolcowTownHall
This Thursday, October 6th at 4 pm 6 pm Central

This thread discusses the current social fabric of lolcow; where it's going, where we want it to go and how to take it in that direction. Also how to improve our farming skills as a cohesive whole.


We propose fixing "social" issues here, especially in curing the cancer that is killing the farm.

This thread is for discussing proposed changes.

I will update posts regularly to describe some potential proposed changes.

These are just ideas, and I am only looking for feedback. These will not necessarily ever be implemented, or if they are, they may change drastically before they are implemented. These are not things I am definitely planning to do, just changes I've been thinking about.

This is a work in progress. Posts may be edited regularly.

Please offer your thoughts on all of these proposals by replying to this thread.

Also, more about the self-posting moderation: I think it's pretty unnecessary overall, since we only have this problem on Aly's thread. You(admin) could just put a notice on Aly's OP saying that excessive self-posting isn't allowed and is considered derailment.

No. 1112

IDs when?

No. 1133

>>1112
At this time I'm leaning towards not adding them unless I open up a new board. In which case, one board might have IDs added.

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?

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

Oh and also could those posts just be deleted? I've already noticed anons responding and I just don't believe that writing a red text ban is going to deter farmers from replying to the tasty wall o text bait. The copy paste rants about feminism clog the threads anyway.

I think people that engage with robots/incels/similar idiots should be banned as well. All they do is give them attention and feed the troll, they end staying because they get the attention they want. It's very easy for them to evade bans so not replying to their bullshit is the best course of action.
