Welcome to the first lolcow.farm survey.
Each person should post in this thread only once. You can say whatever you want about the site, its users, or me. Please try to give serious and truthful answers though, since I will use this feedback to make decisions about rules and site changes. This isn't a "vote" or anything, but it will guide changes I make.
Only make a post if you are replying to the survey questions. Don't reply to anyone else's posts.
To answer, I'd much prefer if you use greentext for the questions. All you have to do is make sure you copy the > with each line. I would recommend you copy all the questions at once, paste them into your reply, then start answering each one. For example:>1. When did you first start lurking or posting on lolcow?
7 months ago>2. How did you find the site and where did you hear about it?

Please give answers as long or short as you like, unless the question specifies a length requirement. You may skip any of the questions if you don't want to answer them. Everything is optional.
If for some reason you don't want to post your answers publicly, you can email your answers to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
When did you first start lurking or posting on lolcow?
How did you find the site and where did you hear about it?
Describe lolcow in one sentence.

Do you usually just read threads, or do you post more than once a week?
Roughly how frequently do you check lolcow?
Is lolcow the first imageboard you've lurked or posted on?
Did you lurk or post on Stamina Rose, or its predecessor?
What related communities (sites and specific sections/boards) were, or are, you in? You can include any sites you want here, but if you use(d) any of these sites you should probably list them: /cgl/, other 4chan boards, /cow/, other 8chan boards, Tumblr, PULL. Please list them in order of "most frequented" to "least frequented". So if you go on /cgl/ the most and Tumblr the least, it should be "/cgl/, ..., Tumblr".
What do you think is the #1 issue facing lolcow?
What do you like most about lolcow and/or its community?
Which board do you read/use the most? And which do you like the most, if it's not the same board?

>17c. There are too many racial discussions and arguments in threads.
>17d. I believe freedom of speech is extremely important.

>17f. I am overall satisfied with most of the content on the site.
>17g. Post quality has been declining on average over time.
>17h. When rules are enforced, they are usually enforced fairly and without bias.
>17i. Rules should be enforced more harshly than they are now (stricter moderation, more bans, longer bans).
Do you think self-posting should be banned in /pt/? How about /b/? Where should the line be drawn as to what is actually self-posting?
Do you think any new boards should be added? Should any existing ones be removed?
Are there specific behaviors, phrases, or types of post you're sick of seeing?
Do you think samefagging is an issue? If so, in which boards is it causing issues? Do you think policies around samefagging should change, either by adding randomized unique poster IDs (not usernames) like some 4chan/8chan boards, or changing rules regarding samefagging, or both?
Is there another website or community that you think we should follow in terms of rules or moderation? If so, which community, and which aspects should we consider adopting?
Is there anything that you think lolcow staff have done poorly? If so, what is it, and how could it be changed or improved?
