Even if I don't think you did much, thanks for keeping the site afloat and alive Shaymin. I hope whoever the new admin is will still give us a new site and I hope any future site updates and improvements can go a lot smoother. >>49339
I definitely agree with this but please
no more discords. Anywhere but discord. Updates should be somewhere here on /meta/ and if the site goes down I would even be ok with using the lolcow twitter account or ko-fi for off site updates.
samefag, i'm critical of Shaymins decisions but i wish her the best for the future. Just stop with this lynxchan girly forum bullshit. Shaymin, find an anon that knows how to replicate lolcow looks and content wise. that's how this problem would be put to rest.
cause it doesn't matter if a new anon is chosen, if that new anon does the very same thing, everyone's going to be upset either way. And hard agree with other anons, updates on lolcow, not on discord please.
i'm afraid they'll eventually find a way to work around new site as well. I don't hold much hope. it's the problem with people, not website.
sorry maybe i'm too pessimistic but i don't believe the new website will be bulletproof. keep trying ofc i'd be happy if was though.
Just if you can't make a new site look like good ol lolcow then at least make it look like crystal cafe, idk. oldschool vibe of this site is the charm of it, trying to make it modern lolcow 2049 site is kinda pointless imo.

Prioritize software that mitigates raiding, keeps nonnies anonymous. That's the important part. If it can be kept looking like an imageboard, great! If it can't, as long as it's navigable cool. Have a couple more farmhands on deck than we do at the moment.
On the userbase-end of things, let's breathe more and if you think someone is a scrote/tranny/etc just don't engage with them and let it go. Maybe they're a weirdass woman or maybe they're a moid but so many threads derail just from throwing the accusations out there.
I appreciate this place a lot for being an anonymous place specifically for women, even if its main purpose has always been looking in on and laughing at trainwrecks. I hope we get through these trying times nonnies.
damn it, it's not just about themes and you know it. >threads aren't moved there and admin has no idea how to do this>finally, turns out we have to start everything all over again and everything old is archived on a separate site>porn avatars aren't deleted - more porn banners!>kpop thread>no communication whatsoever>neither of sites can be accessed normally in certain countries, and still can't be>>49350>it's childish
Idk maybe anon reaction was too strong in some instances, but it was absolutely justified. No idea why criticism is "childish". what is mature then? Loving everything by default and praising admin endlessly?
Shaymin said she planned to move over everything, but as she threw a tantrum before it was put into practice, we don't know whether it would actually work.>>49369
Yeah, that part definitely. If I hadn't autistically read every post on the ephemeral lynxcow and all the screenshots in the cc bunker threads, I wouldn't know anything either.
Ayrt, yep but this was inevitable i think. I wanna say maybe it wouldn't happen (the outrage) if Shaymin didn't make the unfinished site public so fast, but idk. Perhaps overall reaction would be just as strong if anons saw newcow later (because nobody knew details, just new site coming and maintenance on this and this day). Also the reaction is as it is because imageboard users are what they are. I get you guys are fine with new site, and good for you then.
Shaymin reacted extremely childish on top of it all as well and it didn't help.
The irony is that she didn't even change much from the base level i think, didn't she change colors only? but she acted as if she ~done such a lot of work for us thankless autists. Idk maybe she didn't necessarily know what she's doing and reading instructions last minute or something.>>49378
Agree. that being said, all recent drama aside, and admin's absence aside, i get why would she quit. For me just knowing that you're responsible for that site would be more than enough stressful.

whoever the new admin is pls bring back custom css from lynxcow, i was coding my own and i want it back
the original font was a nicer one called Inter, i was just testing out different fonts with css>>49384
i'll try it, thank you

The prophecy is being fulfilled.
shut this shithole down already.
do it, motherfucker.
>>49437>Also please for the love of god implement the CSAM AI thing from cloudflare before you leave or ensure the new admin is on board with that.
God, this. I could deal with my stupid reaction image or some cow screenshot not being uploaded because the algorithm would confuse it with CP if it meant we wouldn't get any new raids posting it. I'm begging of the new admin to implement this.
As for the changes, I'm fine with whatever as long as /m/ is spared. The best board on the entire site. Sorry it ended up like this Shaymin and I thank you for taking care of the site for a year, but I hope the next admin will communicate better because I didn't even know lolcow had a discord before reading this thread and I had always been confused about how anons knew shit that was never announced anywhere. The previous admins always put up a red big notification text about townhalls and maintenance downtimes across all boards, I was always expecting something like that. Also I hope the next mod team won't get into fights with the users so much, sometimes it was obvious they were banning people they personally disagreed with but let infighting in another thread go on for days.

Lolcow now I know, I was wrong, I messed up, and know you're gone
Yeah. It's also in OP here.>If you want to apply as admin or moderator, email firstname.lastname@example.org or join the discord linked in the navigation bar>>49448
Shaymin didn't say she was changing the mod team. I don't see where this idea is coming from. (I can't confidently say it isn't happening either because we don't get a lot of updates lol)
>>49466>Shaymin didn't say she was changing the mod team
Not the current admin, the next admin. When a new admin is instated I'm pretty sure they can choose to keep the same mods as the previous admin or find new ones. Anon said the next
mod team so that's why I made that post, because who knows if those farmhands will stay or not. >>49460
She did, I completely forgot about that. I wonder why she's deciding to do it now instead of waiting for a new admin to find new mods.
And related. Shaymin, if you’re still with us. Will you do us one last kindness? The greatest times on here were the times where big dog cows were exposed as selfposters. Kiki, that retarded weedsmoker with the horrid makeup and a fake ED. I’m not sure if it’s even reasonable, but if there are onion/lainey receipts, I beg you to reveal them. What a glorious milk feast for old times sake. Heck, moo must have posted. TND? I’m thirsting for posts marked with ghosts, and posts great enough to earn stars.
II wish you the best going foward.
engine doesn't matter much for looks
This. It's a legitimate slippery slope. We saw that one mod in /ot/ (the dog love thread) reveal a poster's IP in seconds because she was disagreeing with her even though it could've just been someone using the same VPN, and it was over such an insignificant non-issue too. And the other mod who combined all of the Manifesto-chan's posts by her IP and shared the screenshots after dropping her mod trip.
Traditionally the only times user posts are identified are when the cow is threatening the staff such as with legal action or alternatively self-posting about themselves in their thread like Creepshow did since the site rules have stated that acts like this might lead to the removal of your anonymity. It should be done in extreme cases only and after a careful investigation, powertripping over random posters ruins the site that's supposed to be anonymous.
signed up, it seems it's now a requirement for newer accounts
There’s hundreds of users and a lot are weekenders that probably don’t check it til work week is done. It fucking sucks. Whether admin was shit or not, I agree with anon above that it’s fucking hard managing an image board. Sure some were desensitized by 4chan but it’s still fucking bizarre to see that shit.
She sucked but in the end who wouldn’t? The world sucks and being able to manage survival and an internet community isn’t really feasible

Really it's the internet, if you're not goofing off and having fun you're using it as a simulation for life proper and that will only lead you to a path of negative ruin. Do you know ultimately all that's been done? Jack shit nothing.
The internet does not and will not and never will matter, if someone gets censored for it a new site instantly opens and guess what? Most of this shit minus the trans bashing I can say to most anyone irl and not get clocked in the face. Realistically some people got a bit too hooked on feeling like some righteous crusade and ngl playing a heel is fun. I doubt the new admin and her team will have the same issues of incompetency so sadly we will not be able to play that game shortly.
I know how I could ban myself forever without affecting others or needing to bother with a VPN blanket ban so I assume the new staff will too.
Did it, working on this next, can't get the double pedal to work fast enough on my set tho.
Hot for teacher is a lot of tom drum dancing so it's actually easier to play than it seems.
LMAO, knew you were BSing. You can't even stop chimping out online long enough to sleep for like four hours. Everything you own besides your computer is collecting dust and we all know it.

But yeah she's absolutely right, I'm only posting because I'm still getting yous and also the admin unbanned all my IPs lmfao.
Seconding that. Codexx has been trying to reply but his e-mails are bouncing. Admin, please reach out via IRC.
Your DNS is broken in many regions so the site isn't even accessable. I had to drive to another state to even be able to post this. Good luck and please get in touch soon.

i hope shaymin sees this, i wasn't able to find lc for weeks now but i do appreciate your trying. it is a huge job and i really am grateful for your trying. it's very understandable to be overwhelmed by all of this, but know there are people here who understand and appreciate your trying. honestly i don't know if we attract admins/mods recently that are really underage in comparison to our older admins like regina, but i don't think shaymin is as nefarious as some people want to believe. i totally get if you're just not equipped for a massive undertaking like this. it's a hard job that requires a lot and i appreciate your trying, especially since oldmin just wanted to burn it the fuck down and got extremely angry and vindictive over her terrible moderation efforts (trying to spite a majority of the userbase who were here far longer than her bc she disagrees with them politically and hates radfems) it's just too bad there wasn't more communication and a more comprehensive mod team that you could've could have on board, admin. overall, considering you were just overwhelmed and overestimated the workload, you did not do a bad job, seems like you just needed more help, time, and freedom.
unfortunately, it's probably quite difficult to update and maintain LC while also finding mature mods to combat all of the evil shit men try to ruin our safe haven with, even crystal.cafe has that problem and snail is a good admin who does a lot despite having a life. is there any chance she might want to take over LC? we have so many people here who are willing to pitch in. but we desperately need thicker skinned mods who aren't pissy and admins who aren't offended easily. honestly, despite oldmin's competence, she was extremely petty and awful. worse than shaymin by far. shaymin is just overwhelmed and probably young, it seems. remember, oldmin was only 19 - WAY too young to take on an imageboard this large and too thinskinned. most of us are considerably older than our admins and i think it's proving to be a consistent problem recently. i really hope snail considers taking over LC, becaushe she's an actual farmer with good intentions and she's very skilled.

stay strong nonnie
, we will get through this and come back stronger then ever, hope the search for a new admin goes quicker
i don’t think snail would want to take over. she’s already got her hands full with cc, and lolcow is a much larger board.
i agree that having an older admin would be better. i didn’t know oldmin was only 19, wow that makes me feel weird that i’m older than her kek

>>49829>Dramaphobes lurk this site
Marsey is not amused.
Snail has been MIA for a year now, it's the jannies that are currently running the rodeo>>49840
IIRC she's in her early/mid twenties now, so she was probably 19 around the time she first took over. That's still pretty young of course, and explains why she's such an overdramatic mong, and her Twitter-tier proficiency in discourse only proved that she was probably barely tech-literate to begin with.
I'd put in a few quick things to stop the spam that plenty of Nonna's have brought up and dip;
You couldn't pay me to try and fix this mess.

So who is this? I assumed it was a farmhand who was taking over for admin, but then why would they be handling admin applications?
no she's right.
You're now bringing up databases lmao
Why don't you anons apply then since it's clearly so easy even though there has always been a high admin turnover rate since the sites inception
Are you not >>50364
it isn't that much effort and difficult and now you are saying that nobody will want to step up so which is it
>>50381>Working in the industry
kek. kekmao even really
You sound like a teenager who just found out what hacking is
Nobody is bent out of shape. The admin is an incompetent idiot that lies to its userbase about what is going on. Even going so far as to call them idiots who can't troubleshoot when they say the DNS issue is not fixed, which it isn't. Which admin would have known if she wasn't a bumbling retard as you can still access farmcow.lol with no issues. I'm replying to anons on here who are dumb and want to have an opinion. It's okay if you don't believe me, I'm not here to convince anyone. I simply offered an explanation of what it is like to be a sysadmin and then responded to someone who was arguing in bad faith. I know I've embarrassed the staff and they seem to be online and not happy about it right now but it is in their best interest to let users know these things. Unless they simply took over to troll and have a last hurrah with the website.
Again, if you think I'm a liar that's fine. Anyone who read my posts and is interested in learning more about sysadmin stuff and coding can start looking things up and they'll realize I'm just being honest. Nbd.
Nobody is talking about the domain but I agree it isn't a DNS problem
You said that being a sysadmin is easy peasy and lumped in moderation work into it when you admitted yourself that it's delegated to janis but still haven't explained why so many admins have abandoned ship when we both know that being a sysadmin has nothing to do with moderating a imageboard
I'll look back thanks anon I just think it's weird how a bunch of anons always come out of the shadows during major site drama>>50402

You can search through the catalog for terms. A lot of the really old threads are harder to find. While shaymin sucked, lets not forget why we got her in the first place. Oldmin and jannies kept removing anything related to gc and terf
. Everyone hated her more than shaymin. She got rid of the tranny threads and 2X. Ian wasn’t the site’s admin when Kiki went on her rampage, which lead to her ip being tracked and getting her own header. That is what led people into realizing Ian was still part of the site when people thought he left.
Anyone wondering why we constantly have shitty admins hasn’t been on the site long enough.
