Please post all general issues and complaints here. If you want mods to do something, or have some issue with or suggestion for site content, you should use this thread.

No. 1180

Wizardchan did something where links to their site on facebook or 4chan redirected to reddit. Maybe you could look into something similar for /r9k/ and /pol/?

No. 1181

Also, can they be restricted to the /r9k/ thread instead of just /b/?

No. 1182

>>1180
We've actually been doing that for 8chan since day 1 of their raid. Try clicking the link in http://8ch.net/girltalk/res/3360.html

It can't be done for 4chan because they've added lolcow.farm to the URL spam filter. No one can get here via a link from 4chan; they have to Google for it or type/copy it into their URL bar manually, which means I can't see that they came from 4chan.

>>1181
I'm currently enforcing a soft restriction like that. Anyone who posts outside of a small subset of threads there may be banned, unless their post as well as their whole post history is constructive and on-topic.

Most of these bans do not include visible ban messages.

No. 1184

Why am I banned for "Posting outside of /b/" as of 8/27 for a post made 8/15 in a thread that was moved from /b/ to /snow/ but was in /b/ when I posted in it? I'm not even a robot either. wtf?

No. 1187

add the 8ch image posting feature where you can upload an image by just dragging the image to the 'choose file' space

No. 1188

>>1184
I'm not sure where you're from, but the ban appears to be justified.

>>1187
If you're using Chrome (and possibly other browsers), you can already do this by dragging and dropping an image over the "Choose File" button. I'll see if I can make it more prominent like on 8chan, though.

No. 1192

Has nothing to do with race at all. And why did the thread about the reporter getting shot get merged with the /pol/ thread just because something relevant to race got brought up? Why not just ban spam? This whole system is stupid as fuck imho.

No. 1194

>Has nothing to do with race at all.
I agree with you. Someone on our staff locked it. I've unlocked it.

>And why did the thread about the reporter getting shot get merged with the /pol/ thread just because something relevant to race got brought up? Why not just ban spam?

The thread was too far gone, and the discussions in both threads were pretty much converging. I'd prefer to have just one containment thread rather than two at the moment. It was pretty much choosing whether to lock the reporter thread and redirect people to the /pol/ thread or vice versa. The reporter one was much more active at the time, so I went with that.

Hey this is just more of a suggestion than anything. It would be great for older threads to be bumped to some sort of archive.Weither it be bu an automatic system or an admin does it once and awhile. Reccently there has been an issue of t
Older threads (5 or 6 months) being bumped to the front with very little reason. It gets annoying. Thanks for listening.

No. 1248

Can something be done about all the anachans derailing threads? Anytime someone posts a picture of someone who isn't skeletal or talks about weight they show up and start derailing. Not to mention it's encouraging eating disorders which is pretty awful in itself.

No. 1250

I literally just came here to complain about this when I saw >>1248, so I'm actually relieved to see I'm not the only one having issues with this.

Very recently the volume of ana-chans, or more likely superfats who'd like to believe they have an ED, has increased dramatically to the point where the board is suffering some degradation in quality.

I don't have a problem with people discussing ED's or swapping weightloss tips or whatever, but it's starting to trickle out in other threads and temporarily derailing them.

It's actually getting as bad as the rampant race posting at this point, where if you disagree with somebody or comment on how something like 80lbs is not typically a normal weight you get labelled as fat or obese.

Can we have a rule that users can't rabidly post about this shit outside of delegated threads for the topic?

No. 1251

When will the remembered scroll position feature done? You said you were on it a while ago

No. 1261

>>1251
This is done now.

Your scroll position is saved once every 5 seconds.

Also, you may have to wait a few seconds for all of the Javascript on a page to load before you'll be scrolled to your previous position.

No. 1263

Can a mod/janitor please address my post in >>1260, my numerous reports and what is going down in the kawaii black girls/white girls threads right now.

I get that raceposting is allowed in /b/ but it seems reckless to disallow these threads within /g/ and then leave them open to the mercy of raceposters on /b/ and is honestly completely ruining what could otherwise be really good threads.

I actually come to lolcow for good content and it's these individual idiots that are destroying the board and I don't know why they haven't been banned yet when it's obvious they're the ones causing these problems over and over again and bringing the overall quality of the board down.

How are these spammers any better off than /robots/ at this point?

No, you got banned for talking about yourself non-stop in the middle of a /pt/ thread across 10+ posts in a relatively short period of time.

>It's funny because I used to be severely anorexic in my teens so I kind of get what's going on in their heads, but once you hit your 20's your physiology and metabolism just doesn't really function or rebound the way it did in your teens.


>At any rate if that's the only apt description you can gather about me because I consume 1800-2000 calories a day I guess you're one of those deluded faggots


>Yeah, I miss being forced to keep a food diary, attaching ankle weights under my jeans and water-loading before my weekly weigh-in doctor's appointments.

>I definitely miss the chronic constipation and the anal tears that resulted from it. I miss wearing a jumper everywhere and still shaking and shivering violently because I can't keep warm, and fainting whenever I attempted to rise of bed in the morning, or the "emergency apple" I kept in my bedside drawer.
>I especially miss the heart palpitations and fainting in the corridor only to regain consciousness to find my mother sobbing and begging me to eat something.

>I'm 5'7" and 150lbs now and I've never felt happier nor looked better. Anybody that chases the former lifestyle is sick or extremely stupid and that's why you ana-chans piss me off promoting something like that as a fucking dietary option.


>I am sick of growing up trying starve myself into a size that was never going to suit me anyway on account of my proportions (what's wanted that androgynous look).


>Even when I was 108lbs I still had C cup breasts and a huge ass/hips so what even is the point.


>I said today that I'm 150lbs, the short haired blonde woman is 180lbs and that 150lbs was fine for the girl who was 5'5" when some bitch busted in here calling her fat.


>lol why do you keep trying to convince yourself I'm fat? I work out 6 nights a week and I would make it 7 nights a week if I could but I'm already pushing it with only one rest day. I am addicted.


>Developed a forearm splint in my left arm the other day doing bicep curls with 40lb dumbbells; I guess I have to move back down to 35lbs ;__;


>I know that you just because you don't workout it's difficult to comprehend that people actually do, but it is a thing you know.


>idk what I mean. I have been anorexic, when I recovered I didn't do it right, I began associating food with happiness and blew all the way upto 200lbs. Now I am addicted exercising.


>You can keep telling yourself that I'm fat right now, it doesn't change reality. My body looks a little like the second >>189180 posted only with a lower body fat and a bit more muscle because I'm 10lbs lighter. I am the happiest I have ever been but I need to ease up on working out, but the endorphins are just sooooooooooo good.


>Not even taking the piss any more, but for those of you that don't work out regularly right now, get on that shit because it fixed pretty much everything for me.

>My sleeping schedule, my bowel movements, my depression, my then overeating.

>Selfposting on a board like this is the very last thing I'd ever want to do here.

>Proving to you that I'm not some obese hamlord is not going to change the situation anyway; I will just be accused of stealing somebody else's photo or still called fat anyway.

>Never once said I was sexy. Fit, yes. I never once said you couldn't be thin and fit either.


The opposing side was derailing, too, and I was not taking a side in the argument. You were just the only one self-posting to such an excessive degree, which helped fuel the argument.

You injected your ego into the argument, made yourself a target for trolling and ridicule without being aware of it, and took the bait every time rather than ignoring them. Also sometimes called acting like a "lolcow".

No. 1335

>>1334

Yeah, and literally every single one of those posts were in response to ana-chans screaming "FAT FAT UR JUST FAT JELLY MAD FAT".

I'm an idiot for being baited into it no doubt but there is a problem here that multiple people across all boards are complaining about and not only are you blatantly ignoring it, you're banning people that are arguing against it?

Do I really need to go make a compilation post of all of the ana-chan spam posts made in that thread as a retort just to drive your attention to the fact? If I remember excessive shitposting in a thread of which the soul intent is to irritate and derail is against the rules. Where is their ban?

One part of me is like "Admin has a life too y'know he can't police this shit 24/7" but I think you desperately need to take on more janitors within seperate timezones at this point.

No. 1336

I agree the weight derailing is becoming an issue. I am working on a way of addressing it.

No. 1337

Uh, don't reply so amicably, it makes me feel like a cunt for being grumpy.

No. 1338

>>1336

But seriously, you realise in that banning me and whoever else was arguing with them you're sending them the message that what they're doing is completely fine and contrary to the established rules?

I still don't understand why I was the only one banned. I deserved the ban for selfposting, but they deserved a ban for shitposting.

I say they, it was likely one other person.

No. 1339

>>1333
So I basically got banned for forgetting to spoiler.

Holy shit this is hilarious. How about you go over to that thread and do something useful like handling derailing? There's some girl in there selfposting.

But nah you're probably too busy banning people for telling others to stop derailing and for forgetting to spoiler.

We need a better farmhand, or am I the only one that thinks this?

No. 1341

>>1337

No. 1342

For the record, I didn't ban you. I'm just telling you that that's probably why you were banned.

There are several "Farmhands" not just me.

No. 1345

>>1339
I was the one who banned you.

>>1338
I personally consider somewhat on-topic derailing a lesser problem than excessive self-posting by one individual in a short period of time.

I strongly considered banning other people, but many different posters were involved, and I decided against doing so until/if a more concrete rule is in place. There is currently no specific rule banning derailing, except for race derailing.

I will be discussing proposed solutions to the weight derailing issue in Wednesday's chat. I do think a new rule will probably be added.

>>1341
Farmhand is the capcode shared by all staff members except me. There are several of them.

Why do you feel too intimidated to share issues? If someone gets banned and complains about it here, I'll justify their ban with evidence. Otherwise, ban appeals can be emailed to me and discussed privately, to avoid publicizing the details.

Please feel free to share any issues you have, ban-related or otherwise, publicly or privately.

No. 1346

It is a difficult situation to be sure.

On one hand nobody wants the board to become too policed with an excess of vague rules, but on the other hand you have these minority few that insist on shitting up the board and baiting people like me into retaliating.

I wish there was a better alternative. tbh instead of implementing out and out rules I would probably just institute 3-5 day temp bans against the people that instigate this shit in the first place. I feel like that would be an appropriate discouragement.

No. 1347

>>1346

That's cool, I guess I feel too intimidated to share issues because the admins we had on previous sites like staminarose would take criticisms and complaints SUPER PERSONALLY and would flip out on us, it got to the point that the admin hated the site so much that she deleted the whole thing when the pedo stuff came up

Like, I really appreciate what you've done with the site, and I love using it. I also love that I can express my opinion about farmhand without getting banned, it's pretty neat.

Also yeah, my ban was for something silly like a couple of hours, but I just like to complain.

No. 1349

>>1348

tbh you should complain. Getting banned for not spoilering is pretty absurd, especially on a board that is supposed to be a 4chan run-off.

But yh it's good Admin is not a hypersensitive cuck that bans you for criticism.

No. 1350

>>1348
The only reason you were banned for it is because this is the 8th time staff have had to spoiler images you've posted, including nudity and semi-gore. The image itself wasn't that bad in this case ( >>>/snow/40310 ); I just saw you were consistently not spoilering things. The ban was just a reminder to spoiler things in the future.

The ban was for 8 hours, but probably should have been a little shorter.

Also just wanted to say thanks for lolcow and the non-insane administration… you are really on top of needs for the site and it's really great.. you have really made this place not a shitshow at all and it really could be especially considering 200% of the userbase is fucking crazy.

I'm just gonna say it:
I like admin, I think he has reasonable standards of moderation.
his farmhands are fucking idiots.
What are the standards set for farmhands and why are they so lax/biased? are they seriously just admin-sama's 'friends'?
Also what happened to the town halls? What happened to the chatlogs that were supposed to be posted every week?
Were they just too embarrassing to show? Because the last evidence witnessed kind of looked that way.

No. 1722

>>1720
Townhalls are still held regularly. I don't have a set schedule for them: I typically put an announcement up at the top of every page 1-2 days before, and the day of.

The lack of chatlogs/transcripts is my fault. The big issue is that there's often a ton of off-topic discussion before, during, and after each chat. It's a lot of work for me to edit that out every time.

If you want, I can just maintain a running log of everything said in the channel, and hope people don't find it too annoying to sift through all the crap. Also, I'm not sure what you mean by "too embarrassing to show". There's certainly a lot of useful and productive discussion in them as well.

Regarding Farmhands: could you please cite specific posts made by them, or moderative actions you believe they've taken, that you have an issue with?

No. 1729

>>1720

In Admin's defence Anon I get the feeling you're comparing lolcow to 4chan in its operation.

lolcow is nowhere near as big as other existing imageboards and it undoubtedly never will be. Admin is making $0 off of the maintenance of this site and neither are the farmhands.
I expect it's actually incredibly difficult finding trustworthy people who understand the board culture and its history well enough to be able to moderate it.

I've personally never had a problem with them. I mean moderation response can be a bit slow, but what can you do, it's a small board.

No. 1730

>>1722
I don't mind sifting through the crap. tbh it just felt like you'd decided it wasn't worth the effort.
I say 'embarrassing' because the OT discussion is usually just a bunch of immature jokes and keking.

regarding farmhands, it's nothing that's been done to me personally, but I keep seeing posts from people who've been bestowed short-term bans for activities that wouldn't make someone used to board culture bat an eye. for example, samefagging the pony thread, or posting an image in the fat hate thread that was considered 'too gross'. it makes me think that some of the farmhands really don't have the experience necessary to make judgement calls in certain situations.
I probably came across as irrationally angry in my initial post, but I'm just worried that this kind of thing, if it goes unchecked, will spiral out of control. Choosing your janitors/mods is important–the last days of /cgl/'s drama-mongering era is a testament to that.
Plus that all we know about your choice of mods is that they're people you know in real life & 'trust very well', which…I would like to say that I trust your judgement, Admin, but just because you know them IRL doesn't mean they have a sensitive grasp of chan culture or that they're guaranteed to be fair moderators.

No. 1731

>>1730

This is a fair argument, though I confess the only time I've witnessed this kind of behaviour is when somebody got a temp band for not censoring an NSFW image which was pretty silly.

No. 1732

>>1730
The pony thread in /b/ has a specific rule, which is visible at the top of the thread. The poster (from mlpchan or wherever) was intentionally trying to "protest" against the rule. I was the one who banned them.

Also, mods are people I know and trust very well. Janitors are people I only know through the site. Any staff member of any rank can use the Farmhand capcode. All janitors and mods have used imageboards for many years.

I can guarantee there are and will be very few moderation issues stemming from decisions made by an individual staff member. Any issues that may occur will likely result from the staff member acting as I instructed. We've only had one instance where a janitor was moderating too heavily and taking their own initiative. I removed that janitor.

So, take the issues up with me, because odds are I am the one performing, instructing, or approving any staff actions. This board is far too small for overzealous or rogue janitors to ever become a serious issue.

No. 1736

I was pretty elated when you instituted the rules in the pony thread forbidding one person from posting numerous pony images within the 12 hour limit, but already that thread rule has been broken multiple times by multiple people and I can't understand why you and the other farmhands are ignoring.

I was in the chat when they effectively confessed that their modus operandi was to go from chan to chan and shit it up with their degeneracy simply because they believe they're "above" the standards of /mlp/ on cuckchan.

Why are you letting them use our board as a garbage dump and allowing them to flagrantly violate the rules?

No. 1739

>>1736
>forbidding one person from posting numerous pony images within the 12 hour limit, but already that thread rule has been broken multiple times by multiple people

It hasn't. They are all abiding by that rule. No one person has posted more than one per 12 hours, except for the one person I already banned. If someone posts an image at 8 AM and another at 9 PM, that doesn't stop another person from posting once at 9 AM and again at 10 PM. There are just a bunch of them.

No. 1741

My bad then.
These horsefuckers tend to prize one particular pony over another, so when I saw multiple images of the rainbow one linking back and forth like a conversation in the thread I assumed it was one guy.

I hope they leave soon.

I find it especially distasteful that many people post images of girls struggling to eat make fun of them in /pt and then turn around and ask how they can starve themselves in /g. Am I being unreasonable?

As shitty as it is, can we have an ana-chan containment area? They shit up the rest of the board and I think if we keep the threads about them in one area they'll leave the rest of the board alone.

Seconding this. Ana-chans always derail threads with their petty ana-talk. If a cow's only mistake is that she's over 115 pounds and has a small stomach roll when bending over, that's not milk. That's lukewarm water the ana-chans use as a day's only meal.

I appreciate the anti-censorship stance that Admin takes with this site, but it really isn't necessary to maintain the locked /r9k/ threads in limbo. I mean. it's preserving nothing.

I hate to whine buuut recently there was an r9k shitposter on /b/ and when the farmhand locked their threads and posted a comment, they didn't sage with their comment, which bumped them all up to the front page, meaning the whole front page of /b/ was shat up again

is there any way to deal with this, other than asking farmhand to sage?

thankx

No. 1817

>>1816
If the threads are locked no one will comment on them, and other posts will be bumped back pretty soon. We have been deleting these threads anyway afterwards after locking them, so it would just be a minor inconvenience if a farmhand forgets to sage in the future.

No. 1822

I feel like /b/ or /g/ or both would really benefit from ID's at this point as the bickering is getting too much and I can't see any feasible alternative of dealing with it as you can't just ban people for basic shitposting and such.

No. 1823

>>1822
agreed. i don't think there should be IDs on /pt/ or /snow/ because it would kill all of the selfpost drama, but it would be useful on /b/ or /g/. it's difficult to discuss anything controversial because every time someone agrees with another poster it turns into "SAMEFAG SAMEFAG SAMEFAG" "NO YOU'RE THE SAMEFAG" etc

I was actually thinking a better alternative to just deleting the responses or banning the users would be to shame them into submission.

You know how we used to have a problem with 32" waist-chans until their posts began getting labelled with the tape measures?
How about for ana-chan posts if people reported them they could get labelled with a little PNG image of Ashley in her chairgrave? I'm confident this would eventually shame them as their post immediately becomes the laughing stock of the thread.

No. 1854

>>1849
agreed. Even the robots aren't this fucking irritating, they stay contained to political /b/ threads since they don't give a shit about girls' gossip things.

The problem is kind of illustrated in the screencap. If I CTRL+F for a specific thread on Venus by searching Venus, and it locates the text way below the original image, you can't even click the thread because there's no accessible hyperlink.

5 of them were banned in the past hour, many because they only posted threats and insults and nothing else. Simply being from /r9k/ and posting in the thread isn't a bannable offense by itself, though. It only started being a problem when the thread on /r9k/ was made.

There's an occasional bug where the last thread on a page will sometimes become "lost" in limbo between the current page and next page once a thread on another page bumps it off. This is due to a caching issue. I've been working on fixing it, but it's tricky.

I think the "can't delete your posts after 4 hours" rule should only apply in /snow/ and /pt/.

Personally I don't agree with its implementation at all. Also, if admin/mods are having so many people emailing them asking to be able to delete posts that they have to explicitly state "do not email us to delete posts" three times, then why should it be a rule anyway?

It seems like I'm alone in this, so I guess I'll just stop talking. But I still wish it didnt exist outside of /pt/ and /snow/, especially in such a no-exceptions allowed way. That's all I'm going to say.

No. 2088

>>2081
I respect your opinion, but I also feel strongly that this should be enforced globally. I don't plan on changing it.

All links are auto-archived, all videos are archivable with a click, no threads are ever deleted or pruned. The general philosophy of the site is that "the internet never forgets". It's also generally agreed upon that posters don't have some special or exempt status; a user of the site can be just as much of a cow as anyone else. I think it's counter-productive to maintain a site dedicated to archival and permanence, yet allows users to delete something a week later because they suddenly decide it's embarrassing or changed their mind or whatever. Embarrassing posts deserving of ridicule won't always be secluded to /pt/ or /snow/.

There've been several cases where self-posters and other undesirables have deleted things immediately after they were caught, which spoils the fun. That was the impetus for making the rule.

I think 4 hours is a fair delete window. If you made a major typo or mistake, that's enough time to notice it and delete it.

>Also, if admin/mods are having so many people emailing them asking to be able to delete posts that they have to explicitly state "do not email us to delete posts" three times


It's only happened 2 or 3 times so far. A week ago, I changed the delete error message to make it very clear we won't delete their posts. Since then, we haven't received any requests like that.

No. 2089

Is there any way to stop the massive selfposts? It seems like they just get more and more

No. 2090

>>2089

You can't prevent people from selfposting.
It's up to the users to moderate themselves in this regard as people are only going to stop selfposting when they discover that contrary to it being beneficial to their online status it's actually detrimental and this can achieved through mocking the selfposter and ensuring that their idiocy remains preserved in the halls of /snow/ and thus easily searchable by friends/family members/employers etc.

No. 2099

>>2088
Understandable. But if that's your reasoning behind the implementation, then why not make it so no post can ever be deleted?

Let's just look at the past three days in the Trashley thread on /pt/. Numerous posts containing milk from a first hand source have been deleted, making the thread both disappointing and disorganized. This "Jamie" person posts emails and then immediately deletes them.

After thinking about it some more, I think you're right. It is a little contradictory.

Semi-rhetorical question, but are posts by people severely triggered by the use of 'they' reportable?
Whether or not it's just one really autistic person that's afraid of that word or if it's multiple people that make the same offtopic non-saged CAPSLOCK rants that are completely unrelated to the original post every time anybody uses they in any context. It's unnecessary and doesn't add to the threads.

Why is /b/ a containment board for shit/outsiders? I'm getting tired of seeing nice threads pushed to the second page and inevitably saged to oblivion because polfags cant shut the fuck up about le white master race nigger nigger.

I get that /b/ is random but giving people a place to chat who are not part of the target audience (r9k, pol, etc) brings the content way down. You need to do something. I would rather see a slow moving /b/ that reflects most users interests than what it is now.

And I get that /g/ exists but not everything girls care about is girl-specific and it's a little annoying to have delicate nice time pls no bully uwu in /g/ but everything else is subject to be taken over by race discussions in /b/ or if not, will disappear forever. Even threads that seem like they could take off never do because there are like 5 race-related threads in /b/ right now actively pushing everything down.

I honestly didn't realize how massively assblasted you were about this.

I dropped those reaction images as an inside joke between me and my friend. It's been an ongoing joke for a few months now, and I never heard anything about it until you sperged about it in /snow/. I wasn't trying to 'avatarfag,' nor was I looking for attention. It was genuinely just something for my friend to see, so I could possibly lighten up their day since it's something we both enjoy.

But since you're really that upset about it that you are willing to report me for posting a certain picture or gif, I'd rather just stop doing it.

Admin, I wasn't aware I was breaking any rules, and I wasn't aware I was 'avatar-fagging,' since I don't believe I am self-identifying in any way. If you see fit to ban me for posting a certain type of reaction image, I suppose I understand. But I will stop posting them from now on to prevent further butthurt.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. Back in 2014, we had quality threads. It was refreshing to be surrounded by other women and being able to talk about things on /b/ besides gossiping on /pt/ but ever since the 4chan retards came waving their cocks around, post quality has rapidly declined. They are worse than the Tumblr and PULL users at this point. Not only have they spread their autism on /b/, but I see them crawling around /g/ all the time and boy are they obnoxious about it. All they do is argue, sperg out about mundane shit that no one in reality cares about, and contribute absolutely nothing. They don't need to be here if they already have thousands of boards made especially for them everywhere else on the internet. They just think it's cool to annoy the girls and whine about their lives for attention.

No. 2287

This. I very rarely actually check /b/ now save for a few choice threads because I feel like it's become the "male board". I'm even starting to see them spilling over into /g/, like the Instagram Girl thread where there's some cocklog in there now submitting quality posts such as "male here btw and you ladies shouldn't get fillers they look awful" - I can only assume this war formulated by him slapping his dick against the keyboard repeatedly.

I don't even have a problem with men posting, it's fine so long as they're providing solid content to the site, but I'm getting tired of them all announcing that they possess a dick like it somehow makes their worthless opinions more valuable. It's funny because when on boards like /r9k/, where most of these cucks have originated, mentioning your gender in passing even when it's 100% related to the content of your post will get you savaged.

Can men announcing their gender in posts that have literally nothing to do with their gender become a punishable offence please?

No. 2288

>>2287
It's been a bannable offense since day 1. Every one of those people has been permabanned for it, when we see the reports.

The problem is that 1) people will sometimes not report a post until long after it's made, if they report it at all, and 2) it sometimes takes us time to deal with reports.

The combination of these delays means someone may not be banned until long after you first see their post. And most people don't scroll back up in a thread to re-read old posts to realize that someone was banned.

The most important thing people can do is report things quickly and consistently.

>Can we have a rule about linking threads like tumblr to pt?
I'm going to assume you meant "linking lolcow.farm threads on tumblr".

They apparently removed the links, so all that's left are the screenshots and name references. I'd prefer if they didn't name the site, but I don't think I'm going to make a rule like "you are not allowed to say 'lolcow' on other websites".

I'd strongly discourage someone from posting a direct link, but I can't exactly ban people from mentioning it. Retards from tumblr and MPA will find, and have found, this site one way or another, and I can't exactly try to censor all external mentions of lolcow. I'd probably only ban them if they're doing it in a particular way that would attract undesirables, and if they're in a thread making it obvious they're the one doing it.

In this particular case, if they didn't edit out the links, I might've banned them.

However, generally speaking, I'd be much more inclined to just gas certain infested threads, or ban many users in them if outside invasions are becoming a real issue.

All that said, the way the tumblr post was written makes the person sound either underage or very immature. I won't ban them for mentioning the site, but if you're going to mention the site elsewhere, everything else you post there is fair game for moderation. So, they will be banned for that.

Is all this really necessary? I understand banning people who are really clogging up a thread or treating the site like their diary, but a good deal of this feels excessive imho. I've noticed people getting banned for saying things like "my mother has OCD and this girl's behavior sound just like her" and stuff like that, even when it's very brief and they aren't really derailing. I know I know, it's "hellweek" but that's been going on for more than a month now.

Wow anon, great diary post. Do you have a personal blog I can subscribe to?

Admin-sama, is it worth it to you for us to report the shitposting vegans who are constantly derailing threads? It's not specifically against the rules, but it's very annoying. I hope that some of the recent trolls go back to /fit/ or whatever soon.

Thanks for not abandoning the site yet.

What threads are they present in, other than the anorexia one which was initially derailed by the OP?

No. 2487

>>2485
They were trying to derail the newest fatty general thread in /b/, but I guess it's not totally against the rules since it's not in /pt/ or /snow/, right?

They just didn't seem like long term users, rather just trolls from outside the farm. Sorry for bothering you with a silly question like that, could have answered it myself now that I've typed it all out.

Is it okay to report off topic vegan derailment in /pt/ or /snow/, if it occurs?

No. 2488

>>2487
You can report any derailment.

No. 2491

You recently merged the Kadeelyn thread into pro-ana central, however I think Kadee qualifies as something different, because she fakes a wide variety of illnesses and anorexia just happens to be one of many. Would you consider letting us have a separate thread for her?

I agree she's a munchausen's cow, not a proana cow.

No. 2493

Agreed. Also she produces so much more quality milk on a regular basis compared to the embarrassing self-posts and pulls in the general ana thread. I don't even read it anymore it's gotten so boring. I feel like there's only like 3 people at most posting in it and they all pretend to be different anons.

No. 2517

For the most part, we don't. The only robots who stay are the ones smart enough to completely hide it, since they slip our radar. 99% of the rest are banned on sight. The extremely rare intelligent and non-sexist robot is sometimes wittingly permitted.

No. 2518

>>2517
What does smart enough to hide it mean exactly? There was a robot spamming the dick thread on b with very obviously fake conversations, saying everyone who doesn't want 10in+ dicks must be Asian, and doing the typical "women are whores am I right fellow ladies?" thing. I personally just found it amusing unlike the usual robot shitposting, but wouldn't that equal a ban from what you just said?

No. 2519

>>2518
For one, a good portion of the users who do that are not robots. They're often long-time site users just trolling.

Second, I have already banned like 10 different robots/4channers in that thread. (Some may not be visible because no public ban message; others because all of their posts were deleted.)

Any robots spamming in that way, especially in a laughably bad attempt to actually rile people up, are banned.

1. Is the chat officially dead now? If so, if any of the regulars see this, it was fun chatting with you and I'm sad we couldn't say bye because of just bad timing and lurking - hoot

2. Could you possibly put an announcement saying "Check the catalog"? as >>2545 said there seem to be a lot of summerfags who are making threads that either already exist or are just a photo and say something like "this is anon, does she have drama?" which is very annoying plus it takes up space because they never delete the threads.

I'm sure many of us are happy to lend a hand as farm hands - but there's got to be some kind of action.

Locking threads is a stupid solution, it just encourages this 11 year old egdelord. Admin just needs to bring back hellweek as soon as they wake up, and get some fucking mods. This is just silly.

No. 2817

The spammer was banned repeatedly and just evaded the ban. Their posts were deleted but it was clearly just one person who eventually got sick of spamming.

We lost our mod team with the Admin switch and I've gotten two more and working on a Farmhand application so that other site users can lend a hand. A lot of complaints are just as nit picky as some of the posts about cows, though. Some people will post personal stories at times and it's annoying but unless it's a constant thing you can just ignore it. People should be able to post freely in my opinion, as long as it isn't affecting the overall quality of threads.

I'm looking into the banned cow question but I'll have to look through some of the old threads (assuming they were locked and not removed) since I never got involved with those specific ones in the first place, minus Taylor who I think is worthy of discussing though still not /pt/-tier by a long shot.

No. 2819

>>2770
Wish you wouldn't leave, you're the kind of posters that I am trying to maintain the site quality for.
The site is definitely busier than it used to be because there are a lot of new posters. It's good that we are getting more content but there are also a lot of clueless newfags in the mix and I would like to weed them out without alienating the general community. I want to take a pretty hands-off approach though because I want the community to have its freedom.
If people are really upset by some of the issues then they might as well leave. But I am hoping long time posters will stay and help work out the changes. I try to stay as objective as possible here.

No. 2820

>>2819
When you say 'weed out', could you elaborate on some of the tactics that you have planned?
I'd like to think that we don't have to get rid of the newfags so much as we have to work to teach them the ways of farming. we were all new once. I think emphasizing a 'hands-off' approach to our milking would be a good idea since that's been an issue in the past, most notoriously in the Pixyteri threads of Bygone Times and the Kiki thread last year. I was a member of /cgl/ during its glory days and always felt that those threads maintained themselves pretty well without too much interference from the janitors. Other posters were fully capable of squashing newfags and their blogposts down to size without mod intervention. I don't know if that phenomena was unique to /cgl/ simply because it was a more active board, or maybe because at that time, we were used to DIYing our moderation since the janitors were p. lax about it.
Anyways, I know that there are a lot of posters who are skeptical about the changeover and worried about the future of the site, but I'm optimistic so far. Kudos for taking on the load, Admin-chan.

No. 2821

THANK YOU SO MUCH for cleaning those posts!

Also having a Taylor thread could be nice, but apparently there was at least one crazy person there, what if they will come back when you open that thread?

>>2819
Would it be possible to allow a new pro-ana snowflake thread to be made? I know they're usually a shit show, but I think with a new (hopefully larger) mod team it could be controlled and cleaned up. It could come with it's own rules such as no self-posting, personal blogs, etc. to keep the shit-posting to a minimum.

The autistic "Taylor" fag is back, and PULL is going offline in 2 weeks - so not only do we have this… thing, we can expect a huge influx of young, crappy users.

Suggestions: a captcha and char limit to posts would keep this from spiraling out of hand so fast, as well as a stronger flood limit (i.e. can't post more than 2x a minute or something). Those things should make it easier to IP block and delete before it becomes an avalanche. I'm sure every thread in a mess like yesterday, but the Margo one is currently being spammed up.

It seems like this exceptional individual gets up around the same time every day, so maybe keeping extra hands on deck between the time period they get active is necessary for now.

For those of you who didn't see it in the Announcement thread:

Hi everyone! Sorry about the spam last night and sorry to everyone who was around to see the gore. I was checking up on the site around every hour or so to clear out new posts. The spammer kept ban evading, and 200+ new posts would crop up every time I'd check back. Someone has way too much time on their hands. It certainly wasn't being ignored and we're working on prevention for the future. Thanks so much for your patience.

I'm inclined to agree on moving this to /manure/ since it's mostly Null or other kiwi fags doing a lot of the posting. He's sort of like Sindy Pop in my mind. I don't think it should be deleted though since his sperging has provided some minor lolz.

No. 3011

>>2966
Same here. I'd recommend opening up applications once you get a bit more settled Admin-neechan, maybe just one or two people in various time zones to have at least one Farmhand online all the time in case spammers/invaders come.

Also, if a PULL influx happens/too many newfags come around, maybe making a sticky thread in both /pt/ and /snow/ would be beneficial in explaining the board a bit and what to do/not to do? I know you link the rules, but most probably don't check them and if they're PULL they most likely don't know how these types of boards operate and will make stupid mistakes like starting threads for existing cows because they don't know how to catalogue/not knowing how to quote/thinking you need email/etc.

This would be great. Or just delete them entirely once they've been moved? Spam just clogs up the boards whether the threads are moved to manure or not.

Honestly, when it comes to robot shit, couldn't they just be deleted altogether without even moving them? They all say the same tired old stuff; if you've seen one, you've seen them all. They don't continue posting over in manure, they just make new threads, so it doesn't even contain them really.

Threads are being derailing by users talking about Taylor R. and promoting her videos.

Since no one can keep taylor just in the j vlogger thread I made one for Taylor.

There were no trolls and it was legitimate thread with links and summary. One of the farm hands deleted it immediately once a proper discussion was started on the thread.

I think one of the farm hands is a PULLtard.

Admin please allow a Taylor thread that will not be deleted by a farm hand who likes her. I'm sick of seeing her in other threads that have nothing to do with Taylor. She needs her own thread.


No. 3020

farm hand keeps deleting taylor thread even when proper discussion takes place. admin, this farmhand is seriously censoring the shit out of what is discussed about taylor, even comments are disappearing about taylor that I've seen others post. This is getting ridic.

There was no spam. There were people discussing her, not same fagging - admin can look into that into the old deleted thread that was actually picking up speed into a normal thread.

Taylor really wasn't doing anything interesting, is it really such a great loss if she doesn't have a thread? I think it'd be bad to reinstate it because of that asshole spammer. They might think Taylor threads are allowed because of that spam and it sets a bad precedent tbh

Can admin or a farmhand help out in the Onision thread? Its a mess right now.

There's been suspicious posts during the last two weeks not just there but around the site related to Onision. If you read through the current thread you'll see what I'm talking about.
The most consistent thing that's going on is someone's been posting every single new onision video (he uploads one to two videos a day) with no context and they've been asked to stop multiple times but continue to post his videos daily. They're posted when onision is online tweeting so Farmers are convinced it's him and the thread turned into accusing everyone of being him or talking directly to hypothetical onision.

I think the thread will settle down if that video anon is taken care of and if someone could let the thread know if video anon is the same anon that bumped the Hannah Minx thread (onision has been obsessed with her for years) and who created the Skye Tantaga thread that's now in manure (his ex wife). That seems to be what they want but no one there ever bothers to report or ask.

>>3213 >>3214 thanks. Well, here's my complaint:

Some anons lack of common sense and share the adress or information that may help others find the exact adress of someone, like in Taylor's case but I've seen this in many threads. One thing is bitching about behaviors and other is exposing that kind of information, sometimes they live with more people you know? That's stalker level and more than one farmer could be interested in trying to interact directly with the cow in real life, scary. If you find something well, good for you, but sharing that is not right tho.

No. 3216

Is there any way to block cows from being able to view the site? There's a few cases I've seen (most obviously the Kadee one, but I've heard of others) where someone links them here, and they end up lurking and shutting down any source of milk as soon as we find it. Would it be possible to somehow just redirect users that are admitting to being the cow themselves to some other page whenever they try to open stuff here?

>>3215
I agree doxxing is a shitty thing to do, but I imagine that if people start actually harassing the cows in real life that would come under global rule 1 wouldn't it?

Actually, I was just looking and I think it comes under this
>No egregious stalking or harassment which crosses over into the real world.

Honestly I'm just sick of all these /r9k/ cucks coming to our site and shitting up this place. I think it's about time we strike back.

as stated in the rules, "Personal information of people aged 18 or older, including names, addresses, and phone numbers" is allowed to be posted. The exception to this being "No egregious stalking or harassment which crosses over into the real world." There are some posts made where a person is doxxed and has no involvement with the drama, and we do deal with those as best we can. If you see something being posted that seems like it is crossing the line (and is the exception to the rule), let us know, and we will take care of it.

>>3216
This is something we can look into, but considering that a lot of the cows change IP addresses often, I'm not sure it would work 100%. It is something that can be brought up with the admin though.

>>3218
We deal with /r9k/ posting as quickly as possible, but a lot of robots just change IP and come back again. It's a constant effort, as everyone knows. If someone had a suggestion of something we could do, then we can consider it.

There isn't anything we can do about someone crossing the line in real life, but it's not something that has happened at all. In most cases with these people, they put their own personal information out there online (addresses, contact info, etc.) so really when you see it getting posted here, it's because it was already out there. As stated, if we see something crossing the line, or bordering on harassment, we deal with it. If we see family members with no involvement in the drama being posted, we take care of it.

Sorry admin and farmhands, but the Venus thread has turned out to be a terrible idea. Sure, there are real posters there but they have nothing to say beyond they don't like how she looks or what she does.

There are definitely Margo-supporters trolling that thread. For example, repeating Margo's story about Manaki contacting her when she was 13 as if it is fact (a favourite lie of Margo’s), when the old Venus threads have the evidence in them that she was not 13 but 16. This Venus thread\, if sincere, should inherit from the old Venus threads - it doesn't. The OP doesn’t even know Venus’ name!

So now we get two different threads in the site, one using facts and inheriting for the old Venus-Margo threads, and one just making up whatever they want. This site has enemies and they come here at Margo's behest from time to time. That youtuber, Vexxed, is just one of them. Why are you giving them a forum to bash Venus and spread misinformation?

We're talking about a known abuse victim here. It's a fact supported by third party witnesses and by visible bruises, both of which back Venus’ telling of it. The circumstances since leaving Margo make it clear Venus is recovering from something and is at times struggling. She knows the supportive things we have said about here and PULL, and has thanked everyone for it.

Why is this pile-on of a young woman who is still being abused at a distance by her mother (and trying to find her freedom as an autonomous person) permitted to happen here? Some of these Margo supporters are absolutely vicious people with problems of their own. They literally help Margo to continue her abuse of Venus, whether it's swarming insta or swarming Taylor's YT comments, the shit they say is evil. I'm not talking about naive supporters of Vexxed who don’t know better, talking about those who know the whole deal and still really want to hurt Venus. We don't call them “minions” for nothing. They’re abusers themselves.

Like for Taylor, standalone Venus discussion should be contained in the jvloggers thread, where real thread members outnumber plants and trolls. I know there are real members in the current Venus thread but there’s nothing to say beyond they don’t like her or her looks, and they are definitely in the minority.

Sorry to write an essay but I’m very concerned you’re allowing this to happen.

I agree that thread is literally filled with tards and children. Its like the previous tay thread. There are some who want to discuss venus but all they are saying is that they find her cringey or shes a weeb, nothing new and zero milk. But there are some who clearly are fans of maggot and only spread lies and shittalk

There is literally no fresh milk in regards to Venus, and when there was, it was all associated and/or caused by her mother.

Agreed, there's just no real milk to Venus anymore. If the worst that's being discussed is her weaby ways and how ~strange~ she looks, she should just be patched into the vlogger thread, not have her own.

We've left the Venus thread for the moment, mainly because it's essentially acting as a containment thread. Between all the Venus and Vexxed stuff going on, the Margaret thread has become totally derailed. Once the thread calms down, and things are sorted out, we do plan on letting people know that Venus can be talked about in the Jvloggers thread, if it's relevant (which I imagine it may be considering her new friendship with Tay).

>>3320
Wordfiltering is a great suggestion, but since he already knows about the site (as per his new video about Lolcow and Pull), I am unsure if it would make a difference at this point. We have made a thread for him specifically in /snow/ (to act as temporary containment), and have warned users that posting about him in the Margaret thread will result in a temp ban if it is irrelevant to her.

The Venus thread might as well be renamed the Margo thread at this point
Unfortunately, that's the nature of an anonymous image board–Margo's friends are allowed to come here and sperg out, just like the rest of the herd. Short of nuking the whole thread (or censoring any comments taking the side of ol' river gremlin) there's not a lot that the moderators can do to 'defend' Venus. These kinds of imageboards are supposed to be impartial environments to in order to foster discussion; imo the administration shouldn't be encouraged to step in and 'defend' people who find themselves the topic of a thread, because that's just opening the floodgates for other lolcows to demand that their threads be moved, taken down, or their negative comments be censored.

Not a complaint or issue, but let's say I have obtained the IP of a cow who's been rumored to be shitting up their own threads. Farmhand has already checked the poster's IP and confirmed it's from their area. I have proof of having obtained this IP. Would a Farmhand be willing to see if that IP matches the one I have? If yes, how do I get in touch? Or do I just post the IP in their thread (or here)?

I know that we farmers and the /cow/boys can have differing tastes in entertainment, but I do welcome when they introduce us to a cow they've found. The Britbong thread was obviously made by one of them considering the content they provided; and I do find him to be pretty lulzy. But jfc, sometimes they bring over their spergs as well. Not saying we should ban that sort of content or people who post it, this is just sort of a general vent.

No. 3437

I agree. Britbong seems like a ripe cow, and I'd love to see it play out but the thread is pure cancer. It's mostly just spergs calling other posters out as Britbong/his fans and shit posting.

Nah, I agree completely. It's a pretty bad thread, because any content is just hidden behind Kopy and what I have to assume is him samefagging calling everyone Britbong, and then what seems to be Britbong calling everyone Kopy.

I actually did get banned for that. I wasn't aware that "avatarfagging" is a thing and not allowed. I have since stopped.

Thank you for unbanning me. I actually came here to ask some questions about the rules so that I don't break them again. This is the responsible thing to do before I start posting again after all, right?

So I get I was kind of newfagging asking about Onison in that thread, which is the post listed for my banning. Got it. Someone even replied to me with a helpful link to read all about him anywyas which was nice. Otherwise I don't really have questions about any of the lolcows because hey, why else would I be here?

I was prettt curious why I was banned for Nixon but the Putin person wasn't. Now I see they probably were too, so that seems fair.

So back to my original question so I don't fuck up again- I get that this is an anonymous message board, so continually using an avatar is going to defeat the purpose of that. But when I post, there is a "name" field, and even an email field if someone so chooses to identify themselves. People even tripfag on other message boards. Now don't get me wrong, I don't want to do this. I'm going to post here anon from now on. But is it a general rule of thumb to not use pictures of the same person, or from he same series, for example, in the same thread just for continuity? Additionally, I do have a lot of Nixon reaction pictures that I like. Will I get banned immediately if I use a few more of those pictures down the line, if it's relevant?

Thank you. I appreciate the clarification, and it was a pleasant surprise going on my phone today and seeing I could post again. I really like this site and I am capable of posting in a mature manner.

No. 3457

Also, to amend my previous reply— I have given the link to the rules a solid read, before anyone jumps down my throats telling me to read them instead of just asking here. There wasn't anything there about "avatarfagging," but it did say that "samefagging" was allowed. People might see that an assume they can do both. I know you guys are probably busy, but maybe add the thing about avatars as well for other new users in the future. Just because if one is allowed it may be assumed that the other is, too.

Edit:
Originally posted this separately but deleted it and added it on so there wouldn't be three posts from me in a row—
Just wanted to clarify one more thing because I just realized it might look like I am trying to evade a ban which I know is against the rules (I'm not).
For some reason I can post again on my phone's IP but I am still banned from my ipad's IP. I just realized I might've never actually been unbanned on here lol and it could just be an LTE thing where the IP changes based on location or something. So I have no idea what's going on lol, so I'm just going to go back to playing Pokémon go and see what happens lol

No. 3458

>>3453

I'm not a mod or admin, but here's my take on it.

Just post them where they're relevant. Be smart about it. Avatar fagging was banned from 4chan long ago, it's a rule that was brought along from 4chan when the board was formed.

Tripfags are annoying, and in some cases they should be banned. Yet in a handful of cases it's sometimes useful, for example when we get someone who knows a cow personally, if they use a tripcode it helps keep the knowledge they're sharing clean and from being skewed by retards who may try to imitate them/troll. They really should only be used for that reason.

No. 3459

The name, email, and subject fields are for information relevant to the thread topic; for example (as mentioned) when someone who knows a cow personally shows up. There is no reason you should ever use those fields to identify yourself except when it has to do with the thread topic. This is an anonymous board and your identity is not relevant in any way, shape, or form. The only important thing is information and discussion about the cows.

Specifically when you discuss using images "for continuity" – that is not helpful or relevant and is often detrimental to a thread (as with the Putin guy.) Might be different in /b/. If you are looking for a community of identified users of any kind, if you really feel like you need "continuity", this is honestly not the website for you and I am saying that to help you. Look for another website that allows you to make a profile for yourself.

I get that now that I've been going through old threads and seeing when it's relevant. I never wanted to use a name or trip, it was more of a "well if people do that, then why am I being singled out for using Nixon pics?" Kind of question. Then I lurked more and realized that it just doesn't happen here and is not needed. I was doing it mostly in /b/ and thought the rules were different there for some reason.

TBH I've been posting completely anon all day and like it much better. I definitely have all of the clarification I need on this, especially after reading some threads in /cream/ where certain types of identification were necessary. Thanks!

And you jump down my throat. Wow, just goes to show how being anon can really bring out the worst in people.

Calling a samefag a samefag isn't against the rules, nor is disagreeing with you.

The person who's been shitting up the thread insulting and obviously samefagging (posts a reply, then posts three or four after it replying to the opponent insulting them and making fun of them) is much more of an issue.

Neither are against the rules though, it's just a shit thread.

I don't give a fuck who is samefagging that isn't me. The fact remains you've quoted my posts and posts written by other posters together and labeled them as samefagging. Several times.

>But it very obviously is

And to me nearly all posts accusing someone of samefagging in that thread are very obviously made by the same person. You seem to think I'm samefagging because that's what you'd do. I'm sorry, but not everyone is as pathetic as you.

I'm not the person who was quoting everyone and calling them a samefag, and some of my posts got caught up in that as well.

That was just a retarded troll.

>And to me nearly all posts accusing someone of samefagging in that thread are very obviously made by the same person.


But they're not, there's very clearly at least two people saying it, ignoring the person who quoted everyone.

Well, assuming you're the person who came in despite no-one calling samefag for days and went "WOW all this autistic samefag calling is so dumb I wish mods would just mark my posts", what are you defending yourself from? No-one accused you of anything.

>Oh don't worry. I wasn't talking about that post.


There wasn't just one post, and I haven't quoted multiple people in any of my posts until now, except for to draw reference to something someone else said or to reply to multiple people.

>There's only so much you can say to a person who screams "samefag samefag samefag!" in substitution of an actual argument.


Because there's so much you can say to "lol trannies are so dumb, I bet everyone who disagrees with me is a libtard tranny" or "How does it feel to have been so BTFO?".

I don't think it's just the thread quality that people disliked, there was lots of other not great threads that were simply a matter of taste, it's that the ana threads brought people in from other sites which caused shittier posting across other threads.

No. 3636

>>3633
/manure/ had no real purpose and probably shouldn't have existed. /sty/ is for shitposting of any kind.

As for /b/ and /g/, they were split in the first place because /b/ was getting too infested with invaders, and the policy at the time was to do only light moderation with /b/.

We're now trying out the opposite approach and will treat moderation in /ot/ more carefully. Also, we felt there were just too many boards considering the size of the site, and that there didn't need to be a single "safe space" board. Invaders from /r9k/ or /pol/ or wherever will still be banned.

Give it a chance. We'll change it back if it's not working out.

>>3635
We didn't want it confused with 4chan /b/, which is closer to what /sty/ is. /b/ redirects to /ot/ so all bookmarks should still work. The rules page will be updated soon.

>and that there didn't need to be a single "safe space" board

I'll get used to it, but will moderation for /g/ threads be more lax, then? Race derailing and roastie derailing allowed, since it's now all one board? Are threads that were originally /g/ going to be treated as if they were /b/? Is /sty/ just going to be a recycling bin where mods move threads that are too shitty for /ot/?

Sorry if these are too many questions, Admin.

The Rules section still says /b/ and /g/

No. 3736

Please bring back /g/, or at least give us girls a board where men aren't allowed
/g/ was one of the few places on the internet where girls could talk freely without men shoving their dicks and stupid opinions in things and it was actually enforced by moderators. Or maybe some sort of system so we can flag our posts as "no men"

I honestly think the opposite is the issue too.

Guys getting banned simple for disagreeing, hell, I've seen people banned simply for disagreeing with no evidence they were robots, yet still get that sticker applied to their posts.

A lot more people accusing everyone of being robots as well too.

The merging just seems to have convinced people they can have their own "no boys allowed" club, and use that to shut everyone else out, no matter if you can tell if they're a dude or not.

I don't understand the logic behind merging the boards at all, or why it was necessary, and I think that at the very least some explanation would have been nice, instead of just doing it and then going "Yeah we changed it because we felt like changing it".

At the very least the rules need to be made more clear as far as I see it, as to what actually constitutes a robot (instead of just a person who disagrees with the thread), because there seems to be heaps of confusion, and people using the vagueness to try to turn it into a girls only website, which is silly, because it never was that, and that just leads to stupid fights and insults instead of actual discussion.

That's my opinion at least.

Well, if you're just going to pretend that's not what the conversation was about, I have no idea what to say. You asked why they were banned. Someone said because they didn't even bother checking the catalog before making a new thread, which a farmhand confirmed, because it's fucking common sense that if a thread already exists, you use that thread, you don't need to create your own for absolutely no reason.

You then started getting mad over nothing and accusing me of lying about what you said despite the fact that it's literally in this thread, anyone can just follow the conversation back up and see.

>And now again. I can't tell if someone's retarded or just trolling anymore.


What are you even trying to say? Are you just shitposting for the sake of it?

You're going on about the slippery slope fallacy even though we're talking about an actual example of the thing I'm claiming would happen, that you'd get a heap of threads made unnecessarily that fill the catalog with duplicates and make it harder to find what you're looking for.

There's no slippery slope to be had there, we're discussing because of an example of just that, and there's been plenty of others in the past.



What's even your problem here? Do you think we should allow people to create duplicate threads even though there's other active ones? What's your issue with mods saying to check the catalog and check if there's a thread that suits what you want to talk about active before you make a new one? You seem to be just getting mad for no reason.

I also have a question about the Onision thread: I got banned a couple of days ago because I wrote something along the lines of no scandal is big enough to take Onision down, compared him to Trump and topped it off with a Trump-gif (don't know how to link across boards).
The ban-page didn't give a reason.

Did I get banned because of irrelevancy or because I forgot to sage or because of baiting? Are Trump-Comparisons in general considered political baiting? Just wanted to know if I'll never be allowed to make those comparisons again. That would make me SAD.

Also, it would be great if being banned was somehow visible before posting (except for writing it in the post since most people won't reread stuff). I put some effort into searching for younow-links other farmers were asking for and only realized I got banned after I tried to post them. I assume that's not viable on an imageboard though.

Comment in the pic isn't mine but I'm uploading it to make a point.

All those threads have extremely similar premises. I understand people want to be more specific with maybe, let's say, sexual abuse, so I understand having a thread only for that and that only, but I don't think we really need an advice thread AND a vent thread. Sometimes that's everything you can find in /ot/ first page: vent, advices, lost childhood, vent, advices, DDLG. Rinse, repeat. Rinse, repeat.

Yeah, i hide the threads i don't like/want to read, but sometimes I end up with only one or two /ot/ threads open, so I think we're getting saturated with those topics lol.
I know farmers come up with threads, not you, but i just wanted to express my dissatisfaction. Things are getting boring and good threads disappear in the sea of the same recycled stuff because most people don't bother to read past page 2.

Also,

What was decided about /g/ and /b/? Are they coming back or not?

What's the deal with the trans thread in /ot/?

I got banned for "taking the bait" in it a week or so back because I responded to some retard who kept posting stupid things, even got a public ban for it, which does seem like a bit much seeing as they didn't, but I get the point of it.

Yet there's still people just constantly posting bait shit in it, calling everyone who disagrees with them trans, insulting other users, just being as inflammatory as possible, and there doesn't seem to be any major bans going on.

I'm just kind of curious what the point of publicly banning people who reply to bait, but not doing the same to those who post it? Am I just misunderstanding something or what? Because it seems a bit inconsistent to me.

Also kind of unrelated, but is there an official set of rules for /ot/ or what? Because the rules page still has /b/ and /g/, and I'm not really sure which rules apply to /ot/ at this point, and I've seen people claiming the whole /g/ no boys allowed thing applies everywhere now, so I'm guessing I'm not the only one a little confused.

No. 3972

>>3971
>publicly banning people who reply to bait, but not doing the same to those who post it?
Not a mod, but it's been discussed a few times that red text is only applied where it will be useful (or funny, I guess) so sometimes you just need to submit a report and trust that a ban/sanction was made.
If a user has made a whole bunch of terrible posts and gotten banned with redtext for it, that's still only one post that's going to have the redtext.

Like you I also look forward to more clarification on the g/ot/b thing

No. 3973

>>3972
I get that, it just seemed odd to me that the response to the bait was banned publicly, with taking the bait as one of the reasons, yet the person actually posting the bait wasn't, publicly at least. I would have thought that the person actually shitposting would be a more important thing to stop, which is why I'm sort of asking for clarification on it, or what the deal with that thread at all is, because it's honestly complete crap.

No. 3975

>>3973
To add to what I'm saying here, it's not the only weird public ban I've seen.

Someone got a public ban for posting
>I stopped taking you seriously when you used "incel" as an insult.

To some person who was going off at another user and insulting them, clearly with the intent to bait.

What rule does that violate?

No. 3976

>>3975
sometimes the post that gets someone banned is just one final straw after a long line of shitposting. Normally, taking the bait doesn't have to always be an offense, but in this case, the user's post history was nothing but derailing and picking fights.

No. 3977

>>3976
That doesn't really answer my question though. Like, even if someone did spend their time picking fights or arguing about things, is that grounds for a ban? Derailing I get if it's intentional, but if someone wants to argue, is that against the rules in appropriate threads? Half of the posts in /ot/ are people arguing about things, half of the posts in any forum is generally that. Or do you mean their post history was nothing but insulting and baiting and all that sort of shit?

And I still don't get why that second post was a public ban, instead of the person picking fights and calling the person an incel in the first place.

I might just be looking at this wrong, but it seems like there's a whole bunch of unwritten rules people get banned for violating, which seems kind of unfair, especially when people don't know what rules apply to the new boards and which don't.

No. 3980

>>3979
No, the issue was that in that context, you were intentionally misrepresenting what a user said, and throwing around incel as a boogieman, same as people do with robot.

You can disagree with someone without doing all that shit, which I think is why that user (and myself) thought you were baiting, because it was unnecessarily inflammatory and had a lot of the signs of a bait post. Not saying you were necessarily, and I assume you're not if you're following up on it here. Though personally I don't think either were worthy of a ban, it was just a discussion, and someone got involved in it and added that you using that particular insult took away from your argument as far as they saw it.

And sure, I get that we can't see post history, I just brought it up because I got hit with a similarly weird ban for a post that didn't seem to violate any actual rules a while back for replying to what I saw as bait, and I was sort of questioning if I'd missed a rule relating to that or not, or why those sorts of posts seemed to be getting given public bans so much. And no, I'm not some long term shitposter or anything, I've contributed to a few threads on /snow/ with content, and though I do like to argue admittedly, don't feel I'm particularly rude with it or intentionally derail threads. Only time I've even been warned with anything was when some actual incel was throwing a tantrum in their thread, and the whole thread got told to not reply to their posts anymore.

Just seemed strange to me, and I was hoping for some clarification on it, as well as which rules actually apply to the new boards, because a lot of people seem confused about whether certain parts of /g/'s rules apply on /ot/ or not. I'm more interested in the latter part than anything else at this point really, like, the rules page hasn't been updated to have the new boards on it, and it still says that baiting and shit is okay and that mods don't ban just because they don't like the content. I was kind of hoping we could have the rules updated to be a bit clearer on all that.

I kind of decided to post this here instead of >>2 because it's more of a user gripe than anything.
This is probably nitpick and dumb to most people and probably hard to enforce, but can we make it so spoilered images can't be used as the catalog/first post? I understand quite a few of them were not spoilered and then spoilered later, but it's a little annoying when trying to scroll down to find potential milk or new threads and the image is broken because it's spoilered.

When users do this, I just scroll past. There could be potential milk, but I don't look into it if the thread starter has no visual, you get me?

I think proana scumbags is gonna have to be entirely nuked. It keeps getting filled with shitposting newfags who still have MPA open in another tab.
Something about anorexia makes the farms go fucking nuts and it turns to shit and competition between the shitposting, whiteknighting, and "reeeeee I called TEP cause I'm a better anorexic than alexys. I'll never show proof"

Lately, I have noticed the reports aren't getting acted on as much. E.g. someone namefagging as 'geologyrocks' was allowed to keep their posts up as far as I last checked. I understand the idea of letting displaced Kiwifarmers have a place to hang out, but they should at least make a little effort or else go back to their reopened forum. I realise there has also been an influx from reddit with the /r/Drama posts. But it just seems like namefagging isn't a big deal here anymore compared to when I joined here.

I know the chat has become quite important to many people and I remember you and a few others (farmhands) being pretty active there, but maybe that should be brought back to the site again? The overall idea of having a chat is nice but I (and a few others) don't think things are really working

Hey admin-sama.

Earlier today I was banned due to "spamming", but it was a mistake since I wasn't spamming shit; I just answered a few things in a couple different threads around boards, and tried to create a thread before I got banned. I'm an oldfag and i visit lolcows constantly.
Wtf. The ban page said to contact you guys through discord if it was mistake, but fuck… im not on discord and i don't want to create an account simply to tell you guys about what happened – so I'm doing it here. I was on my laptop btw. I'm not gonna post anymore until the ban expires tomorrow because this situation made me pissy but anyway, i just wanted to explain my situation and that I was unjustly banned.

No. 4054

Hi farmhands, can you do something about Cristy, the girl who's shitting up the Mira thread? I know selfposting is often funny but she's is manufacturing drama by interacting with Mira, then shitting up the thread day after day. It's purely for attention but she's a nobody. She did it in the past with Margo & Venus.

both in the snoozy thread and the margo thread, there's (i think the same) anon derailing anytime anyone talks about tangentially related people (holly and azlabyrinth in these examples, respectively) to yell at them to make new threads about these tangentially related people who definitely do not have enough milk to warrant one. can we shut down the thread policing?

No. 4093

>>4092
the Margo threads have gone to shit but thread policing is the least of it imo. what's the point of posting about irrelevant characters who've not even met her? it's old news and some of it is coming off a bit deranged thanks to our resident flat-earther.

It's disappointing seeing stuff like this going unchecked as well as newfags doing whatever they want regarding names, emojis and saging.

I'm concerned about the cow sticker used in the fakeboi thread.
The user sounded immature but did nothing except express their point of view. The rest of the thread is full of blogposts and personal opinions, and so singling out that one post reads as a bias on the part of the mods. Please explain this decision.

You do not need to enter a nickname or register an account to use the chatbox. Anonymous messages work.

By any chance could people be told somewhere that they don't need to announce their sage every time they do it? You can tell if a post is saged by hovering over the name or seeing that it's blue rather than green so I feel the constant 'sage for whatever' endings of posts to be pretty much redundant. Like you are being told twice.

I saw a farmhand say it in a thread (the Joy thread I think but I can't remember exactly) and I thought that was a good thing for a farmhand to point out.

However, if this is just petty and nitpicky I apologise and will just ignore the sage reasoning comments as I have been doing.

Can you get rid of the anachans in the weight gain trend thread in /g/ or maybe locking? It's being derailed a lot and almost look like is samefagging.

I got banned for "Derailing" (Not evading, it expired) in a thread when 2/3 of my post was talking directly about the subject of the thread in question. That's not derailing. It's not derailing to have discussion about traits a lolcow has or things they do, and IMO the moderators are letting pissy users misappropriate the term so they can curb discussion about shit they personally don't like or find offensive.

This is a definition of derailing from one of the old mods (emphasis mine)
>Derailing

>Derailing means causing a thread to go dramatically off-topic, often intentionally. It does not mean merely disagreeing with the OP, others in the thread, or the premise of the thread. This kind of disagreement is perfectly on-topic.


>Please do not send reports just because someone is taking a stance opposite to most of those who've been posting in the thread. This is not against any rules. People are allowed to disagree.



Does this not stand anymore? If so, why not?

Was this by chance for the vegetarian discussion in the Onision thread? I got a ban for derailing that, which I thought was weird because we were talking about vegetarianism in the Gergle household and it was pretty civil discussion (as far as "civil" can get you on lolwcow). The only thing I can think of is that it was nitpicking and bantering about speculation about the Gargoyle spawn, but I did think it weird.

maybe it's just me annoyed by this but can anything be done about the constant "aging" nitpicking across the boards? obviously some cows look hideously older than they should but it's irritating seeing (likely underage) anons screeching about how everyone in their 20s is "aging so bad" because they don't look like a kawaii 16 year old

can you ban the people getting fighting over blondes and derailing the thread in the 2000s thread in ot? it's obnoxious and reeks of insecurity issues from the party that started it.

Can we stop giving out the IPs of the anons that post here? Today the head admin admitted to knowing the IP addresses of an user on the discord because she was writing criticism on a different chan. we can't really be anons if the admin is willing to use our IPs against us if we say anything bad about her

No. 4419

I'm extremely sorry for what happened today. First of all, no IP addresses or post histories were exchanged. What happened is that I have been talking to the Admin of crystal.cafe because she was concerned about Spoony spamming the board, and concerning one single comment, Admin basically told me "It's not Spoony because she posts about [x]", being a trait of a certain user I recognized. That's all the info I had, but unfortunately it was pretty specific info. Which caused me to impulsively lash out because this user has a direct way to contact me and usually speaks out. Of course it's their right to vent on other sites and I am not aware of who is posting what anywhere on cc, including the lolcow thread. I apologized to the user and to the Admin and I'm aware of what a huge lapse of judgement it was.

It was a big mistake to lash out and speaks of my growing frustration with this board. I'm currently looking for a new Admin. If you're interested, contact us via email if you think you're truly up for it and tell us about your community experience.

Can you guys consider being a little stricter with the constant blog and "I've totally got a mansion and three degrees, so I'm better than this cow" type posts? I feel like they've been annoyingly frequent lately, especially the BPD anons.

No. 4438

>>4437
they banned a few BPDfags in /pt/ for the type of things you're talking about, so they're doing what they can when it's seen, but it's up to us to report it and have them take action.

When it comes to a site like this, the gender isn't what matters. They need to be someone that takes the role seriously. We shouldn't have a female admin just because our base consists of females. Shit isn't going to just magically be better by switching to an admin of the opposite sex if they're only considered because they're a female and not by what they plan to do.

What matters is that they keep the site up and running, tackle any hiccups responsibly, keep mods and janitors in check, ensure our IPs will never be used against us, make sure the rules are enforced, keep communication open with us, and maintain a tidy site. If they're female and can do it, so be it. Let them be admin. If they're male and can also do it, fine.

Can infighting be made a bannable offense? Lately I've been noticing a lot of infighting in various threads and even if saged it's super annoying and derails the thread. Also, users that provoke with a spergy behavior, uncalled for namecalling etc. since it leads to infighting.

What is this new thing with fake praising equally "ugly" girls/guys because they are not the cow in discussion to supposedly make the cow jealous? Like sisters, friends and cousins, Its happened in Onions thread with Billie, Moos thread, that slut who plays a pig's thread and now Lauren's thread. Can we do something? its OT and underage-y..

Example.
>> This cow is sooo ugly but her friend and so and so are sooo hot i mean look how hot they are, Cow must be sooooo jealous!!

The red text in >>>/pt/411520 doesn't make sense. I understand that excessive nitpicking is frowned upon, but is it because it sounds like advice, or is it something else? 8/10 times, there's talk of fail shooping (without it derailing the thread too much).
