I'm sorry it had to come to this. I've tried my best since coming on board as admin but the honest truth is that I underestimated the work it takes just to keep lolcow running, not to mention the intensity of raids this year. I thought I could get it done while dealing with my job and personal life too but I was wrong and had to realise that I can't give this community what it needs. A lot of volunteers have stepped forward, so I'm positive that we'll find a great new team. If you want to apply as admin or moderator, email administration@lolcow.farm or join the discord linked in the navigation bar. The hidden board can be accessed through there now since there were complaints about the posting traffic.

The migration to an updated software is still most likely going to proceed, but for now our focus is to find a new admin and more farmhands. Timezones outside of North America will get priority.

No. 49320

Thanks adminchan. I actually liked the new site and was looking forward to it. Good luck!

No. 49322

Thank you admin for making this and for your work. I really enjoy lolcow and I hope this site still has future.

No. 49324

Admin I'm not going to lie I have shat on you some, but good luck in whatever you do. You are not hated and I often forget the type of shit you have to deal with (like scrotes posting cp/gore). Its good to admit that you may have been over your head. Enjoy your life and I wish you thr best dear shaymin

No. 49325

A short run is better than no run at all, thank you for donating your time

No. 49326

Same I remember being frustrated with all the raids and stuff but I understand this can be stressful running a site like this. Esp since it seems like staff was low for a lot of the time. Best of luck on life Shaymin thank you for at least keeping lolcor running

No. 49327

All the best, Admin! Here's to a decent start to the new year once it's here ♥

No. 49328

Hey Shaymin. I have also complained about you in the past, but reflecting on that I honestly don't think I gave you fair judgement considered the kind of problems lolcow has. I hope you know none of the things nonnies said were really that personal and that you find luck in your future ventures. Additionally, I hope you keep up with us in the Shayna threads

If you're still going with that weird looking threadless new site, you're going to raise hell again. Whoever's coming next as new admin should take that into consideration i guess…

No. 49333

Thank you for everything you've done. I, and many other nonnies I'm sure, glad you're being transparent and honest about everything now. I hope you find a new admin to take over this site.

No. 49334

The whole point of the updated software was better moderation tools and other stuff not the look of the site

No. 49335

Admin, and new admins, my and other farmers advice, request, whatever, please don't treat it as me shouting or whatever. Leave this site alone. I mean, don't move this anywhere. Better fix DNS finally and leave original lolcow running and postable. Nobody wanted that new site. It really wasn not needed, a better moderation team is needed. That is all.

No. 49336

yeah, after a whole year of silence and only showing herself in the last month woooow. bare minimum

No. 49337

Better than her saying nothing and just closing it or letting lolcow die without warning.

No. 49338

Ty for running the site, admin. I can’t imagine it’s easy at all. I hope you have a good time moving forward and we get a great new admin.

No. 49339

I think new admin needs to work in the background on the new site, let us get updates or even see an un-usable version of the site. Then when everything is ready to roll put then reveal it. Even make a discord for updates or something

No. 49340

hard agree nonny

No. 49341

>The whole point of the updated software was better moderation tools and other stuff not the look of the site
Perhaps, but admin's decision didn't bring any good. She never discussed this with anyone, never announced anything besides "maintenance on 19th". If you really dead set on a new site, better learn how to transport all threads there AND most importantly, to make lolcow look like lolcow not new PULL. just my opinion. yeah i'm autistic whatever.

No. 49343

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.
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.

No. 49344

Ayrt I agree with that. I don’t mind a new site if it helps deter the cp posting and raids. People can easily work around bans on current lolcow software and that’s annoying

No. 49345

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.

No. 49347

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.

No. 49348

No. 49349

Am I the only one who doesn't care what the site looks like as long as it's anonymous? I can adjust.

No. 49350

I don't either and I think anons were being childish about the entire thing, but admin also should have been more open about the site change and what to expect with the update.

No. 49351

Honestly glad to get more farmhands. I get it’s hard to vet them & make sure they’re good shit lol, but we need them. Idk I think it’ll be nice for the new year, kind of like a fresh start for the site.

No. 49352

Let us pray for our sister. Our site. Love leads the way always hate is never good to half in your heart. We must lead by example not be an example of hate and hardness on this planet. As we hold hands and praise our Shaymin not for what she didn't do, or failed to do. Or even what she might do for what she's done. For better or for worst she's our shaymin.

No. 49353

I'm asking for it, it's way better than this.

No. 49354

I agree lol, ngl I liked it. Once it got more themes going it’d be alright. Now the kpop/fujo being allowed and on the front page/menu or whatever & the removal of /w/ was what I was confused and annoyed about hahaha.

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.

No. 49358

lol I was laughing at how fast the kpopspergs made their containment thread

No. 49359

Retarded newfag, if you were here last townhall you'd know why admin is doing it.

No. 49361

Same, anons are so melodramatic. As if there aren't site themes for everyone anyway.

No. 49362

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
>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?

No. 49364

It was childish because anons were on CC and on LC throwing a fit, complaining about a site that hadn't even been finished and telling admin to revert back to the old site. You don't have to love it but there were no chances given and they didn't think or use common sense at all, just immediate complaining. No one said that you have to praise admin either, I literally said that she went about it the complete wrong way and she's made many mistakes.

No. 49365

What you said is wrong, but I don't blame you for thinking it's true, because unless you were in the right threads at the right time there's no way to know anything.

No. 49366

Samefag but also I did not say that criticism is childish. I'm talking about the strong reactions - which was most of them.

No. 49367

Will VPNs be allowed? will shitty kpop bait thread stay? if its expected to work out, 2 conditions should be met imo:
1. As similar to original lolcow as possible
2. Move at least pt and snow threads to a new site as well. idk why this would be impossible.

No. 49368

New admin would be the one to answer these anon, and she hasn't been found yet as far as we know.

No. 49369

Nta, so it's bad communication at least then right?

No. 49371

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.

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.

No. 49372

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.

No. 49373

Thanks for exposing the fact that newfags have been responsible for the uptick in random scrote/tranny accusations. Next time hide your newfaggotry better.

No. 49374

And that's the crux of the issue really imo. Hiding words allows someone to go back on the words later and will natural provoke suspicion regardless.

No. 49375

What is the chan/imgboard engine that CC uses? It's close enough to lolcow to not trigger autists, maybe. And it's cute. With a captcha and multiple images per post it'd be perfect imo.

No. 49377

farmers were just a powerless peanut gallery reacting in real time and ooh-ing and eek-ing over changes they got a peek at. not their fault shaymin was secretly emotionally done with the site due to the thankless nature of the job (can't blame her either) and she quit without finishing.

No. 49378

> the thankless nature of the job
If anyone knew what she does or who she is they might thank her if she does a good job. She was completely invisible.

No. 49379

ok maybe I'm misinterpreting what she said and it's not because it was thankless. Whatever the reason, she is done and she said you can't fix autism and she said it was too much on top of her other life obligations. Farmers didn't know she was about to give up and that she would be reading their reactions and getting upset about it.

No. 49380

We went an entire year with so little communication from her we didn't even know if she existed or not. And why did she post updates in a discord (rather than telling us directly on /meta/) which the vast majority of nonnies had no idea existed unless they were following the bunker threads? I'm sure until the announcement there were nonnies who weren't even aware shaymin is resigning. Future admin really has to be more communicative because it's ridiculous we've gone so long without a clue about what's going on, especially during the random downtimes.

No. 49381

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.
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

No. 49383

This. Lack of communication was what fueled the fire as well, it's not only reee we hate the new layout. And it works back, it's not just that admin never said anything (or saying random shit on Discord that realistically not much of anons has access to). It's also that admin didnt' listen to anons asks or advices either (in threads like where's shaymin, complaints, anything in meta). This is minor thing, but it proves my point: anons forever asked her to remove all porny banners, but on the new site she even added some new ones.

No. 49384

just use stylus extension. write your custom style for every site you want

No. 49385

Once again anon, of course it was partially Admin's fault for not properly communicating but the website was so clearly not even finished and the reaction to it was way overblown.

No. 49386

also stupid plea but can the font be like current lolcow one for example. Tahoma or whatever tf it is. Not THIS unreadable thing in the pic

No. 49395

thank you for the work that you've done and time you put into the site, admin. i actually didn't hate the new site lol and i'm sorry if the adverse reactions you got contributed to your decision to step down. hope you can enjoy your life and feel less stressed after this.
whoever becomes the new admin, good luck!

No. 49396

It was placeholder text, but of course kpopfags jumped on the opportunity to make lolcow the new choachan before it was even ready and of course nonnies lost their shit (understandably).

No. 49397

Hey shaymin, I'm still fairly new here (not sure if it's even been a year kek) but I integrated quickly and have to say I love lolcow. Considering how frequently I've seen CP and gore get posted here I can only imagine how hard it is to keep the site a safe, comfy place. I have had no complaints. Best of luck to you and I hope your successors can handle the task set before them.

Love all you nonnas, I hope the site survives.

No. 49419

There are always gonna be overly negative and overly positive reactions to changes by admins on any site, especially anonymous ones. Plus there’s gonna be a few trolls overreacting on purpose. Admins generally need a thick skin and to not take users’ reactions personally. Not criticising here Shaymin, I get how having personal things going on (as she wrote) adds to stress. But lolcow isn’t more autistic about this than any other site, it’s a tale as old as internet that people react like this to changes.

No. 49420

Current system is depreciated and open to vulnerabilities from malicious actors. It needs to be updated. Admin cleaning up that mess before leaving is incredibly generous.

No. 49421

Thank you Shaymin for the proper announcement. I hope Newmin establishes some better way of communicating with users, maybe an announcement thread that only the admin and select farmhands can post in so there isn't any OT clutter?
I don't envy whoever takes up admin tbh. I caught one raid and felt sick for the rest of the day, thank you to all the current and future Farmhands that deal with it.

No. 49422

Because posting/visiting for a lot of nonnas still doesn't work.

No. 49424

>She never discussed this with anyone
She literally announced it a month beforehand on here and it was consistently mentioned even before that. She also said that she plans to take over the old threads and one of the first things anons noticed was that the layout was customizable. Anons mentioned this over and over and over again when it happened but you and other autists chose to have a meltdown instead, leading us to where we are now. Don't start with this shit again.

No. 49425

Some answers to questions nonnies had/things some haven't caught or misunderstood:
The "kpop, fujo, animu" text under /ot/ was placeholder
The css was customizable
Old threads from the cow boards, including /w/, would be moved over
Shaymin would move the off-topic threads too if enough nonnies wanted it
Lynxchan is easier to moderate especially with the cp and raids and tinyboard and vichan is outdated, the code is a mess and many things were already broken
The upgrade was announced a few weeks or so before downtime
Lolcow's monthly cost is $200

No. 49427

Thanks for keeping lolcow afloat for a year, shaymin. It can't have been easy. I hope you get to destress in 2023!

please no more discord. all announcements from future admin need to be from herself or thru mods on here please. meta announcements and redtext at the top of screen is way more welcome than discord. most of us like the anonymous site and indirect communications for a reason. also to admin resigning, sorry for any shit i and anyone else on here have slung at you. i wish you a peaceful resignation and greener pastures for lolcow dot farm ♥

No. 49432

Second this, it's a chore for nonnies to have to play messenger for people not in the discord and if things are announced in discord at least 50% of nonnies end up not even being aware of happenings. There's a good place to announce things straight to the userbase and it's here on /meta/

No. 49433

It's the same one lolcow uses currently

No. 49434

They were trolling you and you guys fell for it really hard. Nobody on Choachan is interested in actually going back to lolcow. It's just the incensed reactions they get from farmers that they think are hilariious.

Thanks for keeping LC afloat this year. Sounds like good news for 2023! May Elsie prosper and live long!

No. 49437

Thank you for your service shaymin. Please ensure that the new admin is not a cow and won't censor the website. Make them reveal any conflicts of interest during the interview process. I can already feel the pedophile supporter Milady freaks who have been mentioned in some threads will try to take over during this time because they have some programmers in their midst, can't imagine how many other cows are going to try to take advantage of this and if you make the wrong call they will control the site as they wish and censor information they do not like. And like another anon said, no troon supporters, but that goes without saying

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. It will probably make a big difference for mods if they don't have to be constantly looking at and reporting cp both in terms of workload and their mental state.

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.

No. 49469

>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.
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.

No. 49476

Bye Shaymin, thank you for communicating with transparency, even if it's at your resignation - better late than never! Too bad it worked out like this but I wish you the best moving forward. Hope you're able to find a great new mod team and an even greater admin. For what it's worth I liked the lynxchan thing and I support it, love the option to edit the css, but I especially love it, if it means better and easier moderation, considering it's the most stressful part about running this place. Do wish /ot/ would be migrated as well, but I guess we'll have to take that up with the next admin. Anyway, bye and good luck!!!

I don’t agree, these boards are supposed to be anonymous. If you reveal some of the minor cow’s posting history, it might lead to users demanding revealing each another’s posts and most likely eventually to mods powertripping.

No. 49502

I doubt Trisha knows how to use imageboards lol

No. 49503

I agree with this for the most part but I think that some post reveals are warranted, eg Keeks, Dasha and Creepshow all were imo.

No. 49504

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.

No. 49548

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.

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.

Snail has been MIA for a year now, it's the jannies that are currently running the rodeo
IIRC she's in her early/mid twenties now, so she was probably 19 around the time she first took over.

No. 50364

It takes very little work beyond the initial set-up and finding a mod team. Being an admin is infinitely less work than being a mod/janitor because you can just delegate all the tedious userbase work to them. You have to do occasional upkeep and fix issues here and there but that can be done once a day for an hour or two IF there even are any issues. The only problem right now with finding a new Admin is that we need someone who can actually code and fix the huge issues lolcow is currently having and also migrate to a new software. That will take some work and time. If the site hadn't been fucked up like this though, admin work is easy peasy despite what some people will claim kek

Sigh. I wish you weren't such a fucking idiot but looking at what you've done with the site I guess that's too much to ask for. Nobody who has any real coding knowledge will want to run this place, you lied too much about what the problems are and have clearly fucked up something very hard with the DNS. You will never find a competent new admin because you refuse to be transparent about what is actually happening and that is very unappealing to people who know what they're doing and, most importantly, know what YOU'RE doing. Which is garbage and foolery.

It's not difficult. Fixing your mistakes will be tedious as I have mentioned in my original post. Nobody will want to step up because you're an incompetent untrustworthy liar who has clearly ruined a shit ton of stuff in the backend. Pay someone to fix this shit and then give the site over to some NEET, that's my best advice to you. Or just shut it down.

there are anons here that actually work in the industry and understand that moderation and the software are different things but you still haven't come up with a reason Ian or other admins left if it was really so easy, maybe consider that it has nothing to do with the technical aspects of an imageboard and more with the people it attracts

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

No. 50391

I never lumped it in with moderation work, that's just you being a farmer aka having no reading comprehension. In fact, you're even pointing out how I made a distinction. Weird. Anyways, the high turnover rate is because Ian got caught trying to canoodle with the mods and then kept hiring new Admins who couldn't code. Both Regina and Sencha were open about the fact that Ian was still doing tech stuff. They needed a new admin that could do it on her own and they presumably got one with the one before Shaymin. You're either disingenuous or a newfag. Looking at the state of the site I'd say it's probably both.

I'm not going to spoonfeed your retarded ass just because you're trying to do another sly bait and switch where you make other farmers believe that current staff isn't full of idiots who have no clue what they're doing. But hey who knows, maybe it'll work. Doesn't seem like there's a lot of intelligent people left on here.

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.

This stands as a tribute to how far this place has fallen.
Gc and terf shit was always banned BEFORE oldmin precisely because … gestures vaguely at the state of the site That and sperging about moids instead of concentrating on milk and cows.
Most people hated oldmin for a whole lot of reasons but the stuff about boohoo muh gendershit is 100% retcon retardation. There was a handful of obsessive autists who desperately wanted to make this place manhate / gc. It didn't work so they went and made their own board. It lasted a while and is now basically the same half dozen spergs checking in. So they came back here and went back to harrassing staff until they finally got what they wanted.

It's funny how there's always at least one perpetually victimized anon on /meta/ insisting that lolcow has fallen because of manhate and gender criticism. Why would you want to coddle male/tranny feelings this hard? Are you personally affected? Men and their actions specially troons can be as cowish as anyone else. Cope harder.
