There has recently been an uptick in /pt/ threads which many members of the community find to be lacking the criteria for "lolcow"ness. Often this is because the OP is not descriptive or clear enough in demonstrating that someone is a lolcow. In other cases, when they are descriptive, many people disagree that they're actually a lolcow.

Here are a few threads which have been moved to /b/:

>>>/pt/112001
>>>/pt/110838
>>>/pt/111652
>>>/pt/116793
>>>/pt/117423
>>>/pt/115068

>>>/pt/116632 is borderline, and has not (yet) been moved.

In response to this, I adjusted the guidelines for /pt/ and added this paragraph:

>If you are posting a new thread about someone who isn't widely known, and there are no previous threads about this person, include an explanation in the OP or immediate follow-up posts as to why you consider them to be a lolcow. You should include links, pictures, videos, screenshots, quotes, or other evidence. Threads that do not obey this may be moved to /b/.


A few questions I would like input on:

1. Would it be worthwhile creating a new board, something in between /b/ and /pt/, for threads about specific people which do not fit in /pt/? Or is /b/ fine by itself?
2. The rules do not stipulate what qualities really constitute a lolcow. Would it be worthwhile coming up with a list of very specific criteria for who/what is deserving of a /pt/ thread?
3. In borderline cases, how should thread moderation decisions be handled, if at all? Some form of voting would be nice, but voting is kind of impractical on anonymous imageboards. One option could be increasing the number of volunteer staff and having the volunteers cast votes, but this is also susceptible to bias and potential drama. The current procedure is simply me making the sole decision.

Why was Fahr's thread deleted? It met all the criteria, and not only that but she's definitely a cow. If we deleted everyone who just asked for it, we'd have like 3 threads.

The thread was deleted by the thread owner. Apparently accidentally, according to them.

I have no way of recovering deleted threads, sorry.

I'll admit I jumped the gun in thinking it was you guys. I guess I'm just still too used to /cgl/ lol. Thanks for the response!

Are the berry threads /pt/ material? All she does is photoshop and lie about how rich she is (like every other fag with tumblr/instagram fame)

Can we at least move her threads to /b/ or something?

I agree.

Hi everyone,

There is a slight issue with the permaban system, sometimes when issuing them there is some IP collision. If you are wrongfully banned please appeal and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. Sorry about everyone who's been wrongfully banned, especially in the robot invasion crossfire.

I'm surprised the userbase is so successful.

Makes me feel like a loser by comparison.

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.

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.

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.

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.
