Last night, we held a pretty productive chat in https://chat.lolcow.farm/r/meta about site policies and what sort of threads belong in /snow/. I may do another one tonight.

I'd like to start doing these once every 1 or 2 weeks. Some chats may have specific topics. Otherwise, you can just ask me general questions about the site and discuss the state of it and its future.

I will also try to post transcripts for each chat, possibly with some off-topic discussion removed, for people who are unable to join at that time. Note that a lot of off-topic discussion is still in these transcripts, so apologies if you have to sift through a lot of irrelevant material.

just curious, why does it stop halfway through the chat?
i'm not well-versed in pastebin, is there more or is that all there is?

No. 1232

>>1229
I cut out everything after that point in the chat, because I consider it too off-topic. No real discussion of moving threads happened after then.

No. 1249

I plan on holding a town hall once every Wednesday evening, Eastern time. Next one will be tomorrow, September 23.

Will you continue to update the chatlogs for those of us who aren't online at the time?

No. 1784

We have stopped doing these once per week. I usually announce them 2 days in advance, and just do them when I feel like it, or if something important is going on. I may go back to a standard schedule soon.

Still deciding on the best way to handle chat logs.

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.

Another example of how pnp can’t physically resist the urge to defensively correct strangers who make any sort of inaccurate statement. I swear this bitch has her eyes sucked into her screen at all times to reply to these types of comments.

What is the point of this thread being stickied? Admin I says he's leaving, yet this thread is the one slapped right at the top of meta because …why? So he can watch from afar as all the teen girls on this site hopefully cry over his absence? People can swap "theories" for his own amusement? It's kind of disturbing.

What's it like running an active community with a lot of interesting topics / people? Is it satisfying to watch it grow etc?

(Posed to the original admins as well I guess, if they hang around)

Thoughts on these posts?

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773831
>I kind of miss drama threads on /cgl/. Don't get me wrong, I know the farm exists but I'd rather discuss actual drama then having to sit through 500 replies of people going 'lol get a nosejob" and how 'ugly' everyone is. I guess that's just because I never really cared about discussing someone's looks? So the farm is kinda boring to me most of the time.

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773850
>The farm is a cringefest most of the girls there are so insecure they need to shred every cow's physical appearance to pieces "lol she's so ugly and fat and her nose is so big and her eyebrows are terrible geez she's sooo haggard and old looking" also lots of ana chans calling everyone a fatty. It's painful and not fun anymore. I miss the drama here because it was simpler,

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773857
>Oh this so much, I'm average close to underweight but I usually don't care what strangers on the net think about my body type.
>But somehow these girls manage to get under my skin and make me hate myself, when it's not even about ME or anyone with similar body shape or weight. I cringe every time someone mentions the farm nowadays because of these people's unhealthy obsession with how other people look

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8774577
>This. I lurked the farm a lot for a few months and I gotta say the posters are more cringeworthy than most of the cows. If you read the OT threads about mental health and feels, it's more than apparent that a lot of the people on there are batshit insane themselves and very miserable. I realized I was among that group and have been trying to improve my life and personality, it's really distressing to realize you fit all the stereotypes of a typical farmer. I just seriously hope more of them do before it's too late for me.

Certainly some valid points there.

I'm about 95% convinced that all the people complaining about nitpicking and appearance comments are newfags who weren't even around for 'old cgl', 'old lolcow', etc.

That is ultimately why they were banned in the first place. It caused lots of arguments and that seems to be what's happening here. People start to say stupid irrelevant nitpicking and then it starts an argument.

No. 2041

I think this is something that will end up regulating itself sooner or later. Enough people call out anachans and tell them to shut up in threads, I don't think admin intervention is necessary as well.

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.

Nevermind he fact that if all of the comments were marked we wouldn't be complaining that farmhands are ignoring our reports.

please please please do something about this faggot replying to every single thread with this. also fuck people who reply to onision threads from one month ago in general.
