Due to issues with people sometimes seeming to trust me more than other staff, from now on, I will also be using the Farmhand tripcode outside of /meta/ when making moderative posts (like "stop derailing" or "don't do that"). I'll only use the Admin tripcode in /meta/, or when dealing with general administrative or site tasks in other boards.

I've already used the trip myself sometimes in the past, but I will now use it all of the time. No one will be able to know if a particular "Farmhand" is me, a mod, or a janitor. Consider all Farmhand posts as decisions made or endorsed by me. If you have an issue with a staff decision, still complain about it here, but don't assume that I'm not responsible for the decision.

That's called a capcode Admin-kun

No. 2121

>>2120
I'm aware, and usually call it that, but I've realized almost no one knows what "capcode" means.

This thread records changes to the functionality of the site, including new features and changed features. Changes to policy, rules, or moderation are in >>1014. You can discuss all changes in >>1134.

I've noticed that linked or embedded Youtube videos sometimes get deleted by their owners after they're posted here.

To help people save copies of videos, I've added a [DL] link under every Youtube embed (unless the embed is in the thread OP), and a [DL] link to the right of every Youtube link upon hovering, similar to the [Archived Copy] link.


If you use Chrome, clicking this should automatically download the video. Firefox does not allow cross-site downloads, so you will either have to right click the link and select "Save Link As", or click the link and press Ctrl+S after it loads.

After seeing several instances of posters deleting content many days or weeks after they posted it, I've decided to add a maximum time limit for deleting things.

This change is in effect now and applies retroactively.

After 4 hours have passed since making a post, you will be unable to delete the post. After 30 minutes have passed since making a thread, you will be unable to delete the thread.


Do not contact staff asking us to delete your thread or post after this time limit has passed, unless it violates one of the global rules. Do not make a post or send a report or email asking me to delete your thread or post.

There has never been a minimum wait time to delete things, and there still isn't one. That is, you can delete something immediately after you post it, if you want.

If you have any issues or questions with this, please use >>1134.

lolcow is forever

The /pol/ thread on /b/ got merged into another (in my opinion only slightly related) thread.

Why did this happen? Is this something we should grow to expect? I just find it illogical, is all.

Does this mean I can go spam the other thread with /pol/ images? Because that's what the initial thread which got locked was for…

No. 1178

At this time, I would prefer there to be only one racially charged thread in /b/. Previously the policy was two at a time, but due to recent events, one makes more sense.

You can spam the thread with whatever you like, because that's what it was turning into.

Just wonderin - how come so much heavy moderation over here? Has shit posting been a serious problem in the past?

No. 1128

nah only since the r9k established an embassy here

"They" ruin everything

No. 1153

I wish the mod would just perma band those assholes.

No. 1164

What about a 24hr temp ban for any IPs that have directly accessed cow from /r9k/ (or 8chan /b/) and have not previously posted anything on here?

It should quell the number of people finding it through "raid this femboard" threads, and if they actually have good intentions, they can just wait a day. Or would that be too extreme?

A nice, cosy, official banner thread to submit your new banners for the benefit and expansion of the website.

Banners must be 300x100

Banners should mention the site directly or indirectly. "lolcow.farm" written, a picture of a cow, etc.

Submitting some OC.

Please use this board for all meta-discussion: questions, suggestions, and discussions regarding lolcow.farm itself.

Feel free to make a new thread to discuss a specific issue if you want.

Rules here are the same as the other boards, except that off-topic posts will be moderated more strictly than in /pt/.
