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.

I think it would be exciting if we could take all the pedophile themed thread derailing posts and put them in their own thread, devoid of context just like a trashbin for the bickering.

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.

It's a nice idea, but it would be a pain in the ass to moderate every post like this.

This is cool, I like it, specially the time-rotating part.

No. 1081

>>1072
>>1080
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

>>5546
Why should they cater to them, though? Other cow spergs don't get to have special treatment so why should the Onion ones?

No. 5550

>>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

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.

As a response to recurring complaints about staff and report handling, we've made a decision. As most of you don't know, I inherited lolcow not after the first Admin's escape but after the next Admin following that, who also hired the current staff. Because I didn't want to step on her feet, I didn't take actions the way I should've. As of today, we've removed all staff hired by the second admin.

Please apply here if you'd like to be a Farmhand.



I will also address any complaints, comments, and questions you may have in a Townhall chat next week.

Hi there, admin. I just want to say good luck with the new staff and that I hope you guys can fix this place soon. There's no way to fucking enjoy browsing the chan anymore when the retarded majority derails threads with jaw discussions and drama about rubbing thighs.
I love lolcow and I wish it the very best because right now the the place is at its worst.
Much love,
Anon

I finally signed up but if by any chance (I accidentally pressed "ok") I would also like to mod (or sanatize) the /int/ board.

Please look into applying across /ot/ & /g/ a rule like the one that 420chan academic boards have had since forever:
>1. These boards are not your dumping ground for stupid racist shit

420 is a looong lasting chan, from whom even 4chan took ideas every so often.

The wording on that rule tells you everything about who you are, in addition to b&, if not following it.

Someone asked about posting statistics.

Here's a line graph of all posts per week for /pt/ up until today. As you can see, post rate has been increasingly pretty steadily.

The post below is the same graph for /b/.

https://chat.lolcow.farm

I've set up a chat page. The code is derived from CyTube (http://cytu.be) with minor modifications. You can talk about whatever you want and share videos.

You do not have to register an account to chat. Registration is optional. You only need to register if you want to make a channel or want to reserve a certain name.

The official chat channel is http://chat.lolcow.farm/r/meta.

Users can create their own channels by registering an account and clicking Account -> Channels. The owner of a channel becomes a moderator of it, and can ban or mute people from it. Channel owners are free to enforce their own rules as long as none of them conflict with lolcow global rules. However, in cases of extreme power hunger, drama, or overzealous moderation, I reserve the right to take control of a channel and appoint a new owner.

I will likely embed a channel (with video removed) into some part of the chan in the near future, to function as an inline chat box.



Please discuss chat issues and suggestions in this thread. I threw the color scheme together pretty quickly and don't like it that much, so I would appreciate style suggestions. If you want, you can adjust the CSS values yourself with Chrome developer tools (F12 on Windows, Cmd + Alt + I on OS X) and tell me the exact changes you'd like to see.

Please also suggest new emotes. Emotes can be based on images of any size, but they're downscaled to 120x120 in the emote list page and 85x85 in the chat, so crop images as much as you can and make sure they look good at 85x85. Ideally they should be 120x120 or larger.



Usage

New channels are private by default. Go to Channel Settings -> Admin Settings to set a password or to make it public.

To use an emote, click Emote List and press one of the buttons, or type the emote name surrounded by colons. :cow: is one example.

Message styling is the same as the ones valid for lolcow.farm (see >>2). So **bold** (bold) and #<3 (♥) work. The ones in the CyTube guide here work as well, but _ and * are italics and ** is bold: https://github.com/calzoneman/sync/wiki/CyTube-3.0-User-Guide#default-formatting

Full documentation can be found at https://github.com/calzoneman/sync/wiki/CyTube-3.0-User-Guide.

just pointing out the irony of saying 'nobody is interested in sustaining a chat' when the evidence clearly proves otherwise.
maybe all we needed was a clearer banner for the chat. maybe it was the environment. at this point, it's hard to say without a controlled test.

So fucking late Quite honestly, I'm very inters ted in a regular chat channel but A) I'm too fucking shy B) I'm working so it doesn't fit with the chat times C) Beyond being shy I'm kind of flakey so I cant always guarantee being available for chat. Other than that I would LOVE to chat with all of my fellow farmers. But I am trash. :(

I've found a site called Livebunker.rocks that's kind of like a real-time imageboard that's basically abandoned that we could take over.

Survey for all Farmers


The farmhands have crafted a survey for all site users to take, in order to improve moderation. Be as honest as you'd like; negative feedback is what will lead to the most positive changes. Discussion can always be had here in meta, but this is an opportunity to voice concerns off-site where no one needs have any concerns about confidentiality.

You do realize it's the ana threads that attract shitty underage girls from myproana right? Literally some of the worst people you could want being attracted to lolcow.

>>3304
Fucking this. At least robots are really obvious and easy to ban, MPA types are just bad posters, they don't violate any rules, but they just shit up the site.

Plus, there's nothing that interesting about most of the ana's they posted, it was just talking about their weight over and over, and stupid gossiping about their looks. The ones who were interesting were allowed to stay, as far as I know.

No. 3307

>>3301
Stop denying the undeniable. This shit site has been filled with SJW's ever since old admin left.

No. 3324

File: 1473386862936.png (18.38 KB, 503x480, graph.png)

So, about 100 people responded to the survey that was posted. Overall, there was more positive than negative feedback.

As for the banned cow topic, it seems that the majority feel that banned topics are a bad idea and shouldn't be deemed as such. However, there was an overwhelming agreement that ana threads should stay off-limits.
Former admin was pretty clear that some of the banned threads should stay banned (ie Berry and Aly). So some of the previously locked threads may be opened again now that we have a full Farmhand staff.

There were some critiques about moderation but nothing that hasn't been brought up already and is being corrected.

There has also been a lot of clear annoyance with SJW/tumblr/PULL-tier users posting. There isn't a whole lot we can do about it besides do more temp-bans and make an example of it. It should go without saying that those types of posters are frowned upon here.

It also seems there's a universal discontentment with the separation of /pt/ and /snow/. There have been a lot of requests to move threads back or have clearer distinction, so that's something to look into as well.

There is also a general desire to have a busier site. Maybe with the unlocking of certain threads site traffic will pick up somewhat.
