Thank you anon! I updated the OP with some links, and I wanted to include this fanart photo we were going to use as the thread pic. We love it! Everyone, feel free to continue discussing what parts of board culture need to be revived. It’s very helpful as we draft rules for hellweek.

With the old /m/ threads back alongside the new ones I think the threads should continue as it did as for example the harry potter thread gotten two threads since the bunker and if one were to participant in the thread from before the bunker which has 373 posts in it should be counted as necro since it's been a year and the topics regarding Harry Potter has since moved on to other things such as the game and the fact that after the bunker it has gotten two threads. What threads I think that fit this criteria is the fujothreads, bookthreads, the j-music thread mostly beacause of that one anon drama/milk with that j-artist and what not etc… I also think if the the newer thread has more posts in it then the one before bunker it should be used instead as in the cookie run thread, husbando smell identification Thread, dubbing/localization thread, female gaze thread and for example an older thread with more posts like the Plush Creation and Appreciation thread should be used instead of the Plush general #2 thread but the link to that thread should be posted in the older one. The same would apply to the Temp Elsie Media Thread and Board-tan Media Thread this topic also has a thread here on /meta/ but it is not getting used and the topic has been evolved into posting pics of Board-tan and X2.
Nothing really comes to mind with threads that are very similar to one another even if the title of the thread is a bit different, so I'll let others deicide regarding it. Cerbmin when you guys and other anons that frequent /m/ finish discussing regarding this matter and come up with more define and clearer rules please post it in the thread that is pinned in /m/ so that everyone can know. I apologise if my wall of text isn't coherent enough and if it doesn't come with my points across but like I tried and I'm too dyslexic and tired to fix it

No. 53547

Seeing as this isn't a complaint or suggestion I'll post it here. I love that farmhands as well as moderating threads with bans are now giving clear clarification posts like they used to! Keep up the great work, LC is already much more fun to browse.

As of today the old Discord server is being retired and will be completely closed on the 14th of March. Future status updates about server downtime will be communicated on https://status.lolcow.farm/. The link to the status page has been included in the navigation at the top and bottom of every page to make it easily discoverable for all users.

We hope that this will provide a drama-free and easily accessible channel of communication with our users about the status of the site!

The slow image issue is being worked on right now. We're doing what we can!

Essentially, this site is run on 12+ year old board software that's extremely unoptimized by modern internet standards. Image sizes and resolutions have gotten bigger and bigger over time and this poor old girl still thinks it's 2011, not to mention the negative impact of the unwanted traffic we get from people who want to harm the site.

After doing what we can to make the site run faster in its current form, we plan to spend the next while working on moving the board to a new platform. As previously mentioned, this will be done with the consent and input of our users.

No. 53690

Cool, thank you admin. I'm glad we finally have a status page.

No. 53693

imo we should keep the original.lolcow.farm link for those who are still in denial with the new software layout, otherwise it would be a pain in the ass for everyone to deal with the same software to please a bunch of whiny users.

There should definitely be a beta period where anons can play around with nucow and get used to it. As much as I dislike Null he was right about imageboard users being the most autistic people online.
I think Shaymin's original plan of having original.lolcow.farm as an archive of the old site and lolcow.farm as the active new site is a good idea.

No. 53722

Yesss, good luck!!

No. 53723

Cerbmin, could you please put in place a system that delet automatically the metadata of pictures when they are posted on the site please ?

No. 53726

super idea, I would be in favor of that.

No. 53728

I'm against it. Just don't post personal photos here or wipe the data yourself, you don't need this site to protect you from oversharing. Retaining metadata can be extremely handy for drama archival, you know, the site's actual purpose.

No. 53729

this. thank you. delete the metadata yourself if you care that much.

No. 53730

Agreed. I was just thinking about why 4chan doesn't do this the other day, but it's pretty vital for many reasons. There are so many free exif data removers online. Don't be lazy.

No. 53742

Thinking about it recently and now curious: are there any plans to try and grow the site? User numbers seem to have dropped off a lot. Those who are left would be decimated by a hellweek. And there still seems to be different contingents regarding what the site is and should be. None of this looks good for the farm in the longterm.
The site is still slow and now the threads are as well. And looking at it from a meta perspective, the internet more broadly has changed. A lot of the old sources of cows and drama are gone or completely different to what they used to be. And interest in spaces like this has dropped.
So yeah, tl;dr how to keep the farms active?

No. 53744

Keep pissing off the actual users and driving them off?

No. 53755

I feel like the farms been active recently? We have been getting a LOT of newfags especially on /snow/. Does the user base really feel slow?

No. 53762

IMO it's been picking up again recently for the first time since the December incident. The first couple weeks after the site came back online most of the threads I follow (even the MTF threads) felt deserted.
Hoping for a hellweek soon though. I think a majority of newfags aren't malicious, just younger and ignorant to imageboard culture. IMO a hellweek would help the ones that want to stick around to integrate better once they see the rules being fully enforced.

No. 53763

How is it helpful for drama archival?

No. 53764


ayrt, I agree with you. Esp when people were seeking refuge on CC because they couldn't post here kek. I also think it's younger/newfag users too, they kind of stick out like a sore thumb with their twitter speak ( /s /gen, "omg not this person doing that" or certain twitter reaction images and emojis) I don't personally mind it, it can be annoying but i agree rules can just be enforced and they can integrate. LC is seen as some sort of oldwebcore thing too with certain demographics on tiktok/twitter so I feel it's getting more traction in many ways. I have faith in the new admins though and I can't wait for a hellweek haha

No. 53766

sounds like you just want to dox people? the last time I saw metadata used to look at how many times a cow edited her pics was probably Dakota's stuff on pull 2.0. Granted that was funny, but now cows post on IG and that gets wiped anyway

Lolcow today is like night and day compared to when shaymin was in power. The drama-free and transparent way you all are handling things around here is a breath of fresh air.

No. 53776

it's hard to understand what the anon earlier meant about drama archival. Presumably the pictures reposted here wouldn't have metadata anyway, so aren't we talking about photos or screenshots anons post, not reposted pics from cows?

No. 53781

Idk if you're new to imageboards but… I'll bite.

Cows post pictures of themselves acting like other people. It can also be a useful thing for when death threats get posted with like, a picture from someone's device. For the most part, if someone wants to be cautious, they'll remove exif data. But exif data has helped catch criminals on imageboards before. The guy that said he steps on people's food at burger King and spits on their food, literally left exif data and that's how he was caught. Same story with Amber Coplin (murderer posted her picture on 4chan and they found shit out using metadata/exif data from his device).

This is not about doxxing some idiot anon that posted a pic of themselves. This is about catching the many other shitty people that get cocky because they think they're untouchable behind being anonymous. So they slip up and FAFO.

No. 53783

That's tricky because nonnas have a hard time not being massively autistic towards newfags. That's likely a major reason why lolcow doesnt grow, it farmers don't encourage new farmers to take the place of those who leave

No. 53794

ah I understand, I'm not new here (really, have been here since 2016) but never used imageboards prior to lc and I only read threads interesting to me. Those haven't included death threats or stuff iirc. I knew about Amber's murderer getting caught via 4chan but had no idea exif was involved.

File: 1677692587790.jpg (585.78 KB, 1187x590, boardtanspergchanreveal.jpg)

The usage of "the farms" was coined by the time we held that board-tan poll years ago.
Since the name of the site is lolcow.farm where there are cows that we make fun of, lolcow users farm for milk and moderators called farmhands for a reason. Or is there some other conclusion on why the term "the farms" came to be?
I mean some anons would use the term "the farms" with an capital F and some simply LC for the site but I always liked to use "the farms" since it was more thematic to the site and the fact I use the abbreviation LC in work near daily doesn't help the matter in not using it.

No. 53849

no, anon, the nickname was never the farms, it was the farm. and it originated as a way to direct people from /cgl/ to the site, since posting the link (or even just mentioning lolcow by name) got you banned for dramu. also the term lolcow didn't even originate from the site, rather the site was named lolcow farm because the term lolcow already existed.

No. 53852

File: 1677697346185.jpg (141.81 KB, 768x1024, catputer.jpg)

There is some improvement after the whole shaymin new lolcow fiasco but numbers are definitely fewer then we what we had from just a few years ago and I am worried about the non existent growth of lc's userbase, like obviously we don't need to be flooded with the usual twitter/tumblr types and potential moids/trannies but I have recommended lc to one of my close online friends and she uses it every now and then and I think we could do something similar on a larger scale, advertise lolcow to spaces that are more trustworthy
as long as all the previous threads can be moved and the new site can be as close as it can be to actual lolcow, I don't think anyone will have an issue

No. 53853

everyone saying that we need a larger userbase needs to fuck off. there's no reason to advertise the site. period. that's entirely antithetical to the site and imageboards as a whole.

No. 53854

no one's saying we need to open the gates for all, just a few more uses to counter balance all who have left for one reason or another

No. 53855

Would you believe that I never noticed the difference. Feel like an idiot now.
>direct people from /cgl/ to the site
>lolcow farm because the term lolcow already existed.
I know that lolcow was a term before lolcow.farm existed, I just didn't think to include it. I actually stopped using /cgl/ after staminarose got shut down and went to browse kiwi and pull before coming here
Yes it is a really good idea to put up some adverts on various social media sites or spam some links on other imageboards like retards

No. 53856

but we don't though. lolcow already gets name dropped on social media sites and kf regularly. users who want to stay are here and users who don't left. and more are going to leave once admins start to actually implement clean up rules and hellweek. people have always found the site by word of mouth, and it should stay that way. imageboards in general are dying, even 4chan. i've been to /cgl/ during the pandemic and it's totally dead. and new users want to change board culture with shit like censorship of both words and speech. the newer covid zoomer userbase is shitty because their generation leans that way, not because there are secretly people who would be better for the site.

No. 53857

fair enough. i think the boardtan and the name had something to do with it's prevalence on our site itself, but going back years in /cgl/ archives you can see that it was used as a code to direct people to milk here. i just threw in the bit about the term lolcow as a kind of extra tidbit, since i think calling it a lolcow farm has always been pretty funny.

No. 53871

the entire site isn't radfem. allowing radfems on the site doesn't make the entire site that way, and admins already said they're going to restore board culture. also original farmers weren't pick-mes. there's a reason tranny hate started here early on. don't forget those original users banned men to begin with.

No. 53903

radfems think this place is evil due to the whole concept of lolcows and a preconception of us being racist like 4chan (i mean there are some polfag losers who pop up to sperg but it's not a lot). So no, it wouldn't go over well. The only "radfems" who would come here are the ones who aren't actually interested in radical feminist theory only call themselves that to be edgy, and they would do absolutely nothing but troll and infight.
actually kind of yes but only because infights with essay long responses each would be hilarious, like watching the stock market reports on a nintendo DS

No. 53904

The few of us who are here likely come off as insufferable moralfags, most who claim it here are just TEs and forget why the term needs denoting from radical feminist in the first place but I digress.

Lmao the autism in your replies. I get your point nonna, it would be nice to have a bit more activity with users who fit the website.

No. 53947

Not at all, I have a lot a faith in this site. I just think the idea is retarded. This site is not a secret, anyone can be told about it or know about it. We don't need "recruitment" or invites because there is no need for recruitment. It's an open free site that anyone can use so I literally don't even understand what the fuck she could possibly be implying. If she or you have friends, tell them about it like?? I don't possibly understand what even it could mean. Want a fucking billboard??

Does the site need more users? Sure. Do we need to actively try to garner them? Literally no. wtf. Plenty of people learn about this site on the daily as it comes under the microscopic lens of news sites and twitterfags/tumblrfags sperging about it on twitter, tumblr and tiktok. The ones that like the site stay, the ones that don't either get btfo for being a newfag or they just leave. The problem isn't that we are lacking new users, the issue is getting them to stay. Are we going to ignore the fact that cp is posted literally daily? Why would anyone besides oldfags want to stick around for that unless they had some investment (socially) in the site? New people join all the time, poke some fun and move it along.

I should also add that the site is terrible in the sense of: a lot of social faux pas, a lot of infighting, a lot of unpopular opinions for normal people, racebait, "TERF" opinions. I like it and am okay with that so I stick around. But the average person is not going to want to stay and deal with that. Even if every single anon on this site invited just one person, I don't even think that would be enough for the site to be "active with likeminded people" because believe it or not I don't think there are that many likeminded people to begin with.

If a new engine(I don't the technical term) is going to be used for new lc, can there be at least a trial period to see what it's like aesthetically and function wise so we can avoid the mistake of shaymin and of course all the threads from the boards have to be migrated, that's not even a question

Most threads on /m/ are so slow compared to the rest of lolcow that it doesn't really matter if they're bumped or not, and the thread will go back to page 3 in an hour anyway.

Looks like it was made by a seething moid/tranny from the aella thread.
It's also interesting to note that he changes IPs/IDs within the short span of the thread (from Uw6HQhZ+ to V068NqkW). Also

>You wanna know the best bit? All the mods have vacated the premises because some "nonna" kept spamming the mods nudes everywhere and the mods gave up. The inmates run the asylum now

Since this was coming from the OP and it's complete made up bs about our staff again, I wouldn't be surprised if this is indeed the tranny again.

>As soon as someone pointed out they should try dating shy middle class tech needs, everyone sperged out and started calling them a moid and faggot

Banning by Mac address? That's not a trick that a Jedi could teach you.

No. 54534

I don't think it's multiple people doing this, it's been the same pattern today as with the joshpocalypse (making new threads using gross people moids love like nikocado, ethan ralph was posted last time, he was liking alogsspace and they love ethan ralph there. etc and having similar text especially with those randomized words at the bottom). They can permaban the ip (whether it's vpn or normal) and remove all posts from that ip, which is what I think they did now judging by how fast they were removed. He's probably getting perma'd every time he spams but he just uses a new vpn location to evade.

No. 54535

but they don't even have macs

No. 54536

Only administrators can deal with raids being carried out this way, and we dealt with it as soon as we were alerted to it! Farmhands/mods cannot do anything with the moderation tools available, it has to be done by directly interacting with the server/database.

The recent raid caused a service outage, but it should be returning to normal now.

The bot posts with a new IP address and spoofed device information between every post. It's not as simple as permabanning them, as everything we could use to identify them changes between each post.

It is likely one person doing it using a bot. Each post has a different IP, we just purged them all manually through the database as that's currently the only way to deal with it. The frontend moderation tools are unfortunately limited!

No. 54560

I just want to let other posters know that if someone's using a VPN the chance of you having your IP banned is extremely low. You're IPs aren't cycled through VPN server farms which is what VPNs tend to use or volunteered IPs they are granted access too and are rented out. I know anons like to say the moids have gotten their IPs shuffled in, but its extraordinarily unlikely and mods/admin probably know this too. Just pointing this out because I'm tired of anons saying their IP was used by someone else when it most likely wasn't and you got banned by accident during the mods activities or its just your ban and mods aren't dumb to think a VPN somehow got access. It's not possible. It doesn't bounce off random people. If you think it's an accident just try appealing.

I disagree. It hasn't happened to me on Lolcow yet, bu multiple times, I've seen ban messages using my IP on 4chan. I know for a fact they're from VPN users because they're usually spam posts, too.
Also, is it so impossible for some moids to just live in the same countries as anons, and for IPs to be dynamic?

No. 54573

When I used the VPNs on Brave, I've seen ban messages that stated using a proxy as the reason though. And some people do have dynamic IPs

No. 54574

Aren't farmhands supposed to not out themselves and reveal that they are a farmhand?

No. 54577

What is the official policy on VPNs?
Different admins have had different opinions. In my personal experience I didn't run into any issues using a VPN until a few years ago when I found that some of the IP ranges available with my VPN were blocked. The admin before Shaymin removed the block on some IPs after I asked her to. Shaymin seemed to want to ban them all and some IP ranges have gone back to either being blocked or being permanently banned with no reason given.

That's what I mean by it's not personal IPs unless you are volunteering them to the VPN farms and getting a rent fee for it. Otherwise you are not using personal IPs. They have their own servers for IPs. If someone is using your IP or your IP got banned on a site and you don't use VPNs and you're super confused, then your IP got stolen and someone could be impersonating you. Just change your IP and I don't mean by using a VPN.

Then lolcow has a security issue, which I don't think is the case.

That's now how it works. The IP is hacked independently without any involvement from the user whose IP is being spoofed. The address appears as a normal IP to the site with no signs of tampering.

I would assume by randomizing it, pulling it off a database or if they know yours and specifically want to pose as you then they use that.

No. 54645

The false ban messages you get on 4chan is because of dynamic IPs and rangebans (bans based on internet providers and countries). The former is more possible on websites with millions of users, but extremely unlikely on a small website like lolcow.
VPNs don't use normal people IPs, like another anon said, they use their own, which is why they are more easy to identify once you research the IP provider and thus blocked in places like 4chan. So you'd have to use said VPN to encounter a ban on a VPN IP and even then it happens rarely, because most popular VPN providers have thousands to tenthousands of IPs. Though browsers with vpn feature, like opera, probably have less.

Yes you do, that article explains what IPs are used for and that they are being abused by hackers but not how the IP spoofing actually happens. Which is being infected with malware that gives access to more information than just your IP address. By that logic every single website owner could "hack your IP" and use/sell it as proxy as soon as you visit the website.

No. 54646

>because most popular VPN providers have thousands to tenthousands of IPs
ntayrt but most of the ones i see have the same 10-20 ips unless you pay for it and it's a less popular vpn

No. 54647

That's right, I was thinking of paid ones. Though even on the free ones, it's not always the exact same 10-20 ones but randomly different ones per account (in my experience at least, I used to play around with vpns a lot to do ad offers for app games kek).

i'm aware celebricows has a pretty shit reputation but it seems even worse lately, i don't understand why there are so many anons shitting up the thread with claims of milkless information about specific people or refusing to integrate. it was awful before but not this bad. i just want to gossip about current news on dumb celebrities without someone derailing into sperging about looks and if it's newfags or moids, they're painfully obvious

No. 54654

I feel like it got invaded by weird facebook boomers a few weeks ago and they made it their home

No. 54655

i'm glad at least another nonna has noticed and i feel similarly, but it's really annoying that they're clogging up the thread with random claims/old photos about the sprouse twins and austin butler, neither of which have current milk. i don't know if they're the same ones derailing about the looks of random celebrity women though. if they're getting banned, it looks like a few have been ban evading but this is all speculation. the one who said that gross comment about lisa marie presley a while back seems to have returned because their typing style is so distinctive.

No. 54656

I think that's a moid. He posts ss of articles a lot and I'm pretty he's the one who kept posting weird edits a while back in that same thread.

No. 54657

i had my suspicions that it was either stubborn newfags or moids but i didn't want to state it as fact because obviously i don't really know. i've mainly been reporting instead but i don't know how many people have gotten banned in the thread. i honestly thought it was blaine at first when it started happening.

tbf i do think some of the other regular anons do take ss of articles as well (and i have sometimes when posting milk) but the way that person types or whoever else is involved is very much identifiable with the random dashes and trump-like typing, apparently samefagging as well. i'm starting to wonder if the thread should be moved back to /snow/ or be stricter on moderation because i'm unsure if it being in /ot/ is just inviting weird shit like this.

No. 54660

100% agree, they also remind me of the one/s sperging about jim carrey all the time. they all type like total fucking boomers and samefag a dozen times a minute, it's obnoxious as fuck. the thread desperately needs more moderation

No. 54735

Yeah I agree with this, this site isn't just for one type of woman and banning anons because you don't like their opinion is a very quick way to lower the amount of users on this already pretty slow site. Not to mention that what's considered moid-y differs from farmer to farmer so it's not even a clear-cut rule and would make jannies very biased.

No. 54736

Not this shit again. It's not about "not liking opinions" but posts that sound like moids. If we went along your logic, no moids would ever be banned because it "could just be a woman with a different opinion uwu~". But that's not how it is. If you want to post like/as a moid, you have literally any other imageboard and forum to do so.

No. 54738

When men are actually here though, it's very obvious that they are men.
>If we went along your logic, no moids would ever be banned
Did you forget that staff can see post history? That anon said "moidbrained girls" so it's clear she doesn't mean actual men and it seems more like she's talking about anons who have dissenting opinions. And again, what is considered sounding like a scrote differs from farmer to farmer and if you've been here for any amount of time then you've seen that a lot of anons will accuse each other of being moids for petty reasons. There's no clear guideline for that and it just doesn't really make any sense to ban anons for being "moidbrained" unless they're infighting or otherwise breaking an actual rule. As annoying as those anons are, this site isn't a hivemind.

No. 54739

No. 54743

This discussion has been already been held in the last thread with responses to all the assumptions in your post so I don't care enough to repeat them. I disagree that moids are always obvious. Unfortunately, especially recently, they seem to get unnoticed at first because muh benefit of doubt and shit up several threads until they finally get banned or anons respond earnestly to them, giving them fooder for whatever they came here for. On other websites, they are openly admitting to posting here freely, for example >>54221 where the moid openly admits to posting in the Vent thread, Get it off your chest thread, Confessions thread and on /g/ and probably has an extensive post history due to it. In the complaints thread there are anons currently mentioning a pol moid shitting up celebricows.
It ruins the board atmosphere and sooner or later prompts this website to get infiltrated with the same garbage you have on any other imageboard. Actually, I don't know why any woman would want to visit non-dramaboards just to bring up the same pol/r9k/misogynistic garbage they can find in any other place.

No. 54744

I noticed "anons" unironically calling themselves femcels and I hate it.

I'm not exactly sure what your point is. I think moids are usually pretty obvious but maybe it isn't to some anons and that's fine, but either way I'm not arguing against them being banned.

The supposedly allowed heart is the black heart suit Unicode character (U+2665) which on many modern browsers, particularly mobile, now gets parsed as the heart suit emoji. The original "no emoticons or emoji" lolcow rule was obviously introduced prior to this, so now we really do need a proper updated consensus if this one emoji can still be allowed.

Yeah, because the cows aren't milky right now except for Chris-chan because he was just released from prison, not because /pt/ is supposed to be a graveyard.

I can see why she was put in /w/ at the time because she was just an annoying pastel weirdo for years but now that her behavior has escalated why not put her in /pt/?

No. 55153

We hope everyone had a good Shaypril Fool's Day. We've gotten a few requests to keep /shay/, and while we decided to return her main threads to /snow/, we'd like to let anons vote on whether to keep /shay/ to house the shaynatorium and other shatposting (option to link with each new Shay thread), or whether to retire /shay/ and return the shaynatorium to /ot/. Here is the link to vote: https://strawpoll.com/polls/05ZdWJEVNg6

No. 55154

>>55153 please please please no. Make it a yearly thing instead, something to look forward to. I really do not want this permanently. No offence to who made it, its great as a gag but my god can I not stand it.

No. 55156

So fucking amazing. Shaypril Fool's was incredible and /shay/ is a magnificent containment board. Well done admin. golf clap
Why'd it bug you so much nonna? If you didn't like it just don't go? I don't see any downside for a permanent /shay/ board that's hidden.

No. 55157

I'd rather it didn't stay and I agree with >>55154 as while it was fun, it's not going to last all yearlong as an active board. Also the board style is rather harsh on the eyes and makes it so that it's harder to read the threads as one would normally.

No. 55158

Nta it was a good April fools joke but giving shaytards everything they want will probably inflate their ego. They already have the shatpost thread in /ot/

No. 55159

I'd rather keep the /shay/ thing as an optional theme instead of have an entire board dedicated to it. Plus, making it a permanent board just gives Shayna more of a reason to say we're a hate site dedicated to her.

keeping it sounds fun now but other anons make good points. I think having it as an optional theme or keeping it for just the shaynatorium and other retard threads is alright. maybe we could bring it back for her birthday month? either way thank you shaymin for the laughs, it truly was amazing.

If the board dies, it dies and Shaynus is finally put out to pasture. No big deal imho. I would even go so far as to suggest any shat posting outside dedicated cow discussion threads in lc where applicable is a ban worthy offense kek.
I mean she's more than welcome to but what can she do? I figure she ought to be flattered. She largely ignores us these days and during balconygate I don't think she even figured out the tipper was from lc.

I posted this in /shay/ but reposting here…

This whole thing was a funny Shaypril's fool joke but is dumb as hell to continue with and just another ego boost for Shay. Anything in the /shay/ can be posted in the Shaynatorium in /ot/. The original thread should be moved back to /snow/.

Didn't we for years resist making Shayna a /pt/ cow because it was funnier to keep her in /snow/ where she was just another ho?

The creator of the Shaynatorium has already admitted to it being a bad idea and taking fun away from the main thread. The first thread took months to fill up, she isn't as popular here as some of you think other than her main thread. Spreading out the shaytism through /shay/ is like not enough butter spread across bread. It's a bad idea and will kill the fun even more.

Too much of a "good thing" always turns bad nonas. Mark my words.

before someone chews me out, i don't really care either way. i like the new hidden board and think it's funny but whatever. i know you autistic bitches can't handle any sort of change.

No. 55200

I'll bite: We are a drama site. The drama boards are what our site is about. /ot/ /g/ and /m/ were added to give drama thread users a spot to take offtopic conversations to. Users who don't care about the core community of the site (and often rebuke it) obviously lack enough understanding of our board culture or want to actively change it. They have no place in the conversation. The fact alone that there are /ot/ users who consider themselves separate from drama board users is laughable and shows how bad the twittok infestation has become in recent years. It's like saying you go on KF just for the chat or you go on PornHub for the comments. If you don't care about the main focus of the community then find one that isn't centered around drama or make your own, but don't try to change ours. Personally I think all outspoken /ot/ only users should just get banned instead of letting them continue to dilute board culture. I'd even support closing the offtopic boards so that the farmhands can focus on the main boards. We could always just do a crystal.cafe takeover, that's what it was made for and we could easily displace the trannies

No. 55202

Nta but no off topic board users are trying to change the culture of the site or get rid of them (no, not even that anon. Admins asked and they voiced their opinion but they didn't say that should be /snow/ be deleted or shayfags banished). If anything, it's the users who keep coming to /meta/ demanding that the off topic boards be deleted that are trying to change the culture of the site. Yes this is foremost a cow site, but off topic boards have been on LC since the beginning and they're a part of the core community and culture whether or not you have an autistic hateboner for them.

No. 55203

i don't want to get into another oldfag vs /ot/ debate but this part that you wrote > If you don't care about the main focus of the community then find one that isn't centered around drama or make your own, but don't try to change ours is so fucking true. i have absolutely zero issue with newfags or board users who prefer one board over the other, but the whole issue with the influx of newfags is that they want to whitewash the site and turn it into something that it isn't and anyone who tells them otherwise gets told to basically go to hell. they aren't interested in board culture and more often than not, want to astroturf the board and turn it into this uber-liberal political hellhole with a little sprinkling of q-anon here and there for good measure, all while nuking everything that made lolcow lolcow in the process. and no, this board was not originally a "feminist" board, it was a gossip board started to contain drama from /cgl/ and that's a very, very simplified version of how lolcow came to be.


they've never come out directly and said they want to change the culture, they always have some slick way of getting around it but their intentions are very obvious. i remember the whole meltdown over the cow lore poll (basically a bunch of users failed) and that was when it became obvious we had two different sects on this board - general board/chan users and then these other people with no interest in the culture at all. i remember the arguments between oldfags and the newfags from twitter and tiktok who didn't like the cow boards because they thought they were "mean" or whatever for gossiping about "autistic" people. i remember these same newfags during covid terrorizing burritomin and trying to turn the board into a white feminist hellhole and anyone who dared to call them out on their whining and bullshit would get piled on and called all sorts of crazy names.

i've been here since the staminarose era. i've seen this site change hands and have been through most of the attempted takeovers and it's been interesting to watch it all happen over the years.

No. 55204

Agreed. I’ve contributed to the majority of threads on /shay/ and I still voted to get rid of it. Idk if other anons just aren’t using them yet because they don’t want their efforts to end up getting deleted, but it’s crickets in pretty much every thread. Even if it stays I’ll keep posting my retarded edits in the official Shaynatorium thread anyway in protest. Like you said, it’s already the perfect hub for all things shaytistic. And I’ll slightly disagree with it being a bad idea and taking away from the main thread. At least there you can post your edits without being banned for fan art, which always cracks me up because isn’t this an imageboard? How are you gonna get funny thread pics without edits? But I digress. The main thread for milk and Shayna’s autism + the Shaynatorium for shaytards’ autism is already the perfect combo imo. Also the first thread only took 5 weeks to fill up not months, but I’ll grant you that the second one is a lot slower

No. 55205

Samefag, coming back to add that the Shaynatorium is already auto-saged, so why do shaytards need further containment? Who in /ot/ is being bothered by shaytards in an un-bumpable thread at the bottom of the catalog for active threads? I just don’t understand the need to decentralize the shitposting even further, it dilutes the quality overall.

No. 55206

Just FYI I don't have a hate"boner" for the /ot/-chans either, I just think they shouldn't insert themselves/make themselves heard. If they have complaints, they can do their own thing, but they shouldn't take up more site resources than needed. Imo they're guests. They're welcome to join in but need to sit down when farmers are talking. I don't think farmers are better than them, we're just different userbases and this happens to be a site for farming. That's all.

This. Maybe they don't outright call for a rule overhaul but everyone can see how they're trying to police language and thread content while having no connection to the original board culture whatsoever.

I don't see why we care about giving shay an ego boost or "giving her more ammo" as another nonnie put it. lolcow is for our entertainment really and if it's funny we should do it. her feelings shouldn't impact our decision imo. I'm not too fussed on what happens either way, it would just be a shame to get rid of it entirely cause it was pretty hilarious.

>it would just be a shame to get rid of it entirely cause it was pretty hilarious.
Keep /shay/ but close it and only reopen it on April 1st every year for a few days so shaytards can enjoy a recap of the previous year's shaytardation.

No. 55213

Not a Shaynafag and I don't care about her threads either way but she's one of the cows whose threads harbor shittons of camgirls and other twittertards and having the whole /shay/ board is inevitably going to empower them to run more rampant. I don't know if you've ever been around for any of our "containment zones" but they've never worked and always ended up just attracting much more of the undesired postings. I know /shay/ wasn't made as a containment zone but that's what it'll turn into if it stays. Spergy threads need to be given less leeway, not even more. My main point being that this is a conversation around the bigger board culture and its long-lasting issues. If you disagree, you're at least contributing to the conversation, but you just want to sidestep it entirely because you don't care about the state and future of the site as a whole.

No. 55215

/shay/ just came about 5 days ago. I'm talking about our main boards and how every so often anons come into /meta/ saying that off topic boards should be banned or whatever if that wasn't clear.

1. Move the main Shayna threads back to /snow/.
2. Put the Shaynatorium back in /ot/ to be linked in the main thread like usual
3. Leave /shay/ and the rest of the shit-threads within to be actually "hidden" and a time capsule. Only accessed by die hard Shayheads to be freely Austistic and to fuck around in if they want. Have it not be mentioned in the main thread and be a true "Lolcow Easter Egg"
4. Make the Shayna theme an available style on all boards for the fans of the sparkly butt plug

No. 55220

You know I'm really thinking about this as someone who has been diehard about keeping /shay/. Why do we want to keep it so badly? Because it's fun as hell. We love the shenanigans and the tomfoolery with fairly free posting. I suggest cerbmin come together and add some more fun elements to lolcow. Don't mess with the original boards, but maybe add some experimental stuff like /shay/ every so often. Like maybe every couple of months if possible. Now I'm a complete idiot and have ZERO clue how much time it took to make /shay/, but we've had soooo much laughter and fun off this versus bitter sperging I can see some humorous elements injected into our beloved lolcor being a good thing. Now I know there's gonna be some nonna's who will screech and moan about the OG lolcow and how it should never be altered, but good God ladies isn't it time for a little spice in our lives? The fact cerbmin even put this together is the best thing that's happened in ages. Let them get a little weird and wild. Why not turn /shay/ into a fully autistic haven for us spastic weirdos to post weird edits/ramblings about our favorite cows? If you don't like the retarded hidden board… don't open it. Pretty simple. In fact make /shay/ the theme board and leave OG lolcor alone all together. Weird ass themes and bizarre posting galore depending on what admin picks/lets us vote on.

No. 55221

This is the way

No. 55223

I think the shaynatorium and current shay threads should stay in /ot/ and /snow/ respectively and /shay/ should serve as an archive of her old threads and for other shaytistic shay threads (like the ones currently in /shay/)
>Now I know there's gonna be some nonna's who will screech and moan about the OG lolcow and how it should never be altered
This is how 4chan died. I get wanting to preserve culture as much as possible but there has to be something new introduced every so often so lolcow doesn't go the same way.

YES I agree completely. We gotta keep injecting some fresh fun otherwise it will all go stale. We're already seeing cows dwindling with no replacements. We have loads of material in personal cows but I think nonnas are intimidated by the thread making process as well as being critiqued for their cow choice. Maybe we need a process for voting on new cows for fresh threads? Or maybe updated criteria?

No. 55225

I think we should go back to the old Shayna main thread on /snow/ and the Shaynatorium on /ot/ arrangement. We can keep /shay/ as an archive. On /shay/ there are many dead threads with 5 replies and I think it would be more fun to have the off-topic shay discussion in one place (the Shaynatorium).

No. 55228

I dont know how much work for the admonnies this would be, but I think thats a great idea to have all the shayna threads archived in one spot in /shay/ after they fill up. Will doing this kill all the links existing threads (ei. old thread lists and when we link back to the last thread)?

Due to popular vote, the Shaynatorium will remain in /Shay/. /shay/ will continue to be a hidden board. Shayna’s main thread has been moved back to /snow/ and any new Shayna threads should be made in /snow/. We are currently working on tweaking the Shay theme to be less eye-searing, once it’s tweaked it will be available as a theme site-wide. Thank you to everyone who participated in the vote!

Just hide the thread.

No. 55340

I have to say I agree on this one. Why do we want to foster that kind of audience on this site? Not only that but it'll probably attract incel moids in a "how do you do fellow blackpilled stacies" kind of way and it's just toxic. There's nothing based about giving in to utter hopelessness and paranoia while living as a woman in this world, it's not empowering whatsoever, and it really all puts one's traumas and insecurities on blast as they lash out at everything around them. It's just not mentally healthy and these women need help. I feel pity for whatever extreme events turned them to this thinking. Although I can't say I feel the same for moids because they're mostly awful by default and go blackpill because they feel entitled, thinking the world owes them something, specifically pussy.

Came here to complain about this, albeit days late. It's indistinguishable from the incel mindset and trying to pass blatant misogynist ideas like "women are just leeching off their husbands and being prostitutes to them" as "blackpilled feminism" is fucked up and only used to attack other women based on oversimplifications, not to criticize structural misogyny, the patriarchy or even feminism. Femcel isn't a term I use lightly but in the case they're actually female and not baiting XYs they view other women the same kind of cock carousel riding hussies as actual incels do and harbor resentment towards them, it's so personal sounds like a desperate cope for not being picked. It's unhealthy and obvious mental illness like that should be treated as such especially because it keeps bleeding over from that thread to other places outside of /2X/, a board that's already oversaturated with larping scrotes, /pol/tards and Paki-chan and Seal-chan samefagging.

We got a group of new fag femcels and they don't only keep their misogyny contained in /2X/.

They think they're superior to other women because other women are cheap easy whores just like incels.

No. 55589

It's what happens if you don't ban the retards (and the moids immediately joining) the first time they pop up.

Mods won't ban obvious trolls/ unhinged anons until it's too late. It's annoying.

Posting traps and femboys should be banned on site and is an obvious sign of a moid/tranny posting. Thanks to them, the yaoi/bl pic dump thread is now another /cm/ from 4chins as if they couldn't keep their shit over there instead. They can't deal with our hate for these flat futas knowing that moids and trannies are egotistical and entitled.

Apologies for not interacting for a bit, we’ve all had irl commitments to attend to that converged around the same time. We are still collecting farmhand applications.

Yes, it makes it much faster/easier to issue bans. Thank you, anon!
We are reviewing our revised site rules currently and will update lolcow.farm/rules when they are finalized.
Before we move to LCF 2.0 we will allow (and encourage) anons to test it and give us feedback. The period between rolling out LCF 2.0 for testing and permanent migration to LCF 2.0 will be a few months at least. But yes, all threads posts, images etc. will be moved over to the new platform, and we’re going to make it match the current aesthetic as much as possible.
All farmhands go through an extended interview process, including voice verification, and if there are any remaining doubts we require documentation.
It's a hard issue to pin down as duplicate posting can often be caused by device or internet issues user-side, or small outages from our host, but we are monitoring the logs to try and resolve any issues we can.
We think Dasha is off her meds.
We’re working on bringing you a “dark mode” to the Shayna theme, please hold.
Adding new banners has been broken since before we became admin. We had to fix some broken moderation tools so it was low priority, but we absolutely do plan on fixing it and adding new banners.
Yes, 2X will be hidden on Friday the 28th.We’ve decided to hide it again as we never really agreed with unhiding it and its “trial run” as an unhidden board has attracted a lot of new users who don't integrate and shit up other boards.

I'd really appreciate some clarification from admins or even farmhands since right now it seems like males are allowed to post as long as they don't outright state that they're men.

No. 55983

We ban them when we can, bans aren't always redtexted, and we only ban it when it's very obvious/we know it's them. btw, there is more than one, and we try our best to catch it. Moids are never allowed but the amount of nonas that report someone they think is a moid and we check and it's actually not, just a very tradfem or whatever else, is a lot higher than you think, like a LOT higher than you think. Please keep that in mind.

No. 55985

We have 3 admins, one of whose sole job is to communicate with users. We rarely hear anything and when we do it's always real life and jobs and spare time. Either they've taken on a commitment they can't handle or they're just making excuses. How exactly are they going to spin up LC 2.0 if real life and jobs and spare time?
Every time we get a staff changeover, there's asskissing and omg so based staff and all the rest of it. It's retarded.

No. 56000

>So how can we know?
There is no way to definitively identify a moid, unless he admits that he is male or you are a farmhand with access to post history. Accusing other anons of being moids doesn't achieve anything. If the accusation is wrong, you've probably caused another infight and if it's right you've given the moid the attention he was looking for and are encouraging him to come back. If you suspect a moid, report and ignore.

Farmhands are probably very generous with the bans/post history consideration because they are terrified of accidentally banning actual women. So if they larp as women in other threads (like moids already admitted both on here and on websites like 4chan), they might not get banned and it can be written off as "tradfem retard".
It doesn't make sense why the website suddenly gets simultaneously an influx of actual moids, cp spammers and also tradfems (for some reason lmao) in the same time.
The solution would be to give farmhands more access to info on the posters, so they don't have to go off solely by Ip & post history.

No. 56005

Most moids use vpns and if the vpn is also used by a normal anon, it'd be hard for farmhands to tell apart males. That's why it's best to just report and ignore moid-ish posts. Even if they don't get banned they'll leave if they don't attention

I wish that were true but it's not always the case. Just remember how much they instantly shat up the europe thread when the russian/ukranian war started. Thankfully farmhands were more consequent with banning in that case and didn’t insist it could be tradfems.

Lots of device info that is harder and more expensive to fake than just using vpns. A few years ago during some retarded drama with oldmin, someone posted a screenshot of an admin panel running on the same imageboard software lolcow uses, which had at least two more identification factors than IP.

That is also my impression, I was referring to a farmhand who claimed those posts com from actual farmers more often than we think. Though I don't believe moids make up half of the userbase, it's starting to get really noticeable that there are more now.

Because it would be easier to identify their real post history, including any avoided bans and more obvious posts.

No. 56081

I'm not sure why you think an anonymous imageboard is going to be exclusive. It's possible to have a verified female userbase, but we'd need to move to a closed forum. I see the need for farmhands to have data about a user's post history, bans, and IP, but I'm not crazy about adding to the data collected here. All it takes is one asshole leaking IPs and people who post without VPN are at risk of being doxed. (And we had a farmhand who leaked an IP just in December.) I hate the raids and the dumb moid stuff as much as anyone, but it's an open imageboard and that's going to be hard to eradicate.

We put a lot of trust in the farmhands by default and there have been a few, past & present, whom I wouldn't want to have my mac address or device info because they themselves act cray from time to time.

I knew I'd get these replies but it doesn't matter to me, I'm entitled to an opinion. I found that IP leaking event (no matter how many numbers or if it was a VPN) very alarming and some people who were angry about it even got bans wrongly labelling them as the troon. because they expressed anger about it. Didn't someone recently try to goad a poster into posting their IP on here in meta?
but in the end admin will do what they will, I'm not gonna whine about it. I don't say anything very personal on here but regardless I still value anonymity for other normal (=not spamming gore/cp) posters who might.

No. 56137

Again, you clearly don't know what incidents I was referring to. The ex janny that posted an anons post history didn't do it because they "deceived lolcow" and even the current Admins disagreed with the last time a farmhand partially exposed someone's IP (probably because the rules are super outdated). Samefagging a post about cat pee was barely deceptive and they weren't samefagging to argue anyway. Anyway, if you want to WK the mods then go ahead anon. This is pointless.

Except for manifesto-anon, they literally did it everytime for that reason and post historys aren't revealed by farmhands, but by admins. The anon who got their history revealed on meta a few years ago was larping as both radfem and tranny while responding to itself like a schizo and admin revealed it to show that. The anon who was samefagging in the cat hate thread explicitly claimed otherwise, so the farmhand added a censored screenshot of what they could see. Just don't be a samefagging sperg or a literal cow and you have nothing to fear.

> this has strayed so far from the original discussion
You weren't close to the original discussion in the first place, since you self admittedly jumped in without even reading the full discussion. My point was that giving farmhands access to additional device info will help them with banning more efficiently to which you voiced converns about poster's privacy. Other anons and me then explained why it doesn't pose any remarkable danger to our anonymity, which you completely ignored to go on about falsely retelling farmhands banning of samefags and then also ignored the corrections.

No. 56168

Nice backpedaling. Manifesto anon was the one exception I named but you previously didn't acknowledge it at all, how come? And I don't care about "how i look like" or you think "I'm weird" since this is an anonymous imageboard and not twitter. Just take the hints to integrate instead of larping as an older user.

No. 56170

>you previously didn't acknowledge it at all
Anon, that's literally the only instance that I know of an ex janny exposing someone's post history. I was referring to it from the start here.
You yourself just cited the part where I acknowledged it, hence the "ex-jannies". Manifesto-chan's post history reveal was not a normal or approved reveal and it got deleted because of that. The previous admin even said that stuff like that is why people didn't trust staff, or something to that effect. I don't even want to fight anymore I genuinely think you're just misunderstanding me or maybe the way I wrote it was confusing, but I was literally always using that situation as an example.

No. 56173

I was the one bringing up manifesto-anon as the one exception here >>56148 . You didn't mention that case in any of your posts, not even after I mentioned her and even afterwards claimed we were talking about something I supposedly wasn't there for. Nevermind manifesto-anons post history was not "used to farmhand's advantage to be petty", they wanted to share it out of admiration. Which is questionable too, but obviously not what you were talking about.
The point stands that farmhands would benefit from more poster info in their ban options than just IP and post history and that the risk in any meaningful privacy breach or "doxxing" for the average nonna would be low to nonexistant.

Nevermind some of the explanations why some were supposedly misbanned make no sense or are delusional (one in a million chances to use the same vpn ip in the same thread at the same time while responding to that same person, claiming it's because of dynamic ips even though most users have those, etc).

That's not true. I use Norton VPN and apparently there is a limited amount of IP's on there because I've received ban notifications twice now in threads I lurk but don't post in. One was for asking dumb questions unsaged, the other was for alogging, both comments weren't mine but some other farmer who uses Norton VPN. I do think the samefagger in the cat thread was a samefagger, but my point is it's not a one in a million chance, I've seen other anons talk about it happening to them as well.

The schizotroon+other assorted moids burned through half or more of the free ProtonVPN IPs so far. I have also seen a few bans using this VPN directed at normal farmers for posts that had nothing to do with the troon. It's definitely not super unlikely to use the same IP that other posters are using.

But reading the AYRT's post, she's not just talking about these coincidences but also the same IP replying to the same person at the same time in the same thread. That's much more unlikely to happen.

It is unlikely, and I do think the user was just samefagging, but it could happen.

Hi farmers!
If you have even had the fleeting thought to apply as a farmhand, we strongly recommend you do so. The site is in need of help and we have received 20 legitimate applications as of today. You don’t need loads of free time, just a general idea of how to internet works and a willingness to check in on the site when you can. The more farmhands we have, the less time each of them will need to dedicate to clearing reports that can get into the hundreds if not tended regularly.

Yes! Once we have the new rules in place, we will update the announcement to bring users to the new rule page. Keep in mind, these are small edits and will not be anything like a complete overhaul.

I looked through our moderation log it hasn’t been deleted by a farmhand or mod. I also combed through the staff email and didn’t find any takedown requests. Apologies for not having more information, my pet theory is it had something to do with Colours but I obviously cannot prove this.

We have considered the ability to filter and hide posts. We will open a thread for LCF 2.0 recommendations once we have farmhand applications dealt with!

The fishtank thread >>>/m/291726 was locked because there is already a Sam Hyde thread in /snow/. If anons want to liveblog about the show, an autosaged /m/ thread is acceptable.

I like this idea a lot! Adding it to the requested features list. This is not a guarantee that we will be able to deliver it!

I understand the frustration, anon. We have optimized images on the site to help with speed. Our userbase is arguably larger than it’s ever been based on stats provided by our host. As new moderators are brought on, expect there to be an adjustment period. If you are concerned about rules not being understood or upheld, I would refer you to the Farmhand Application.

Regarding drag kids being posted: the drag thread is relatively inactive and the OP decided to specify not to post about drag kids. However, our site wide rule is that minors should not be posted UNLESS the focus of drama/milk is on their parents who post them online (think Hartley family). Because the MtF threads are more active and the OP didn’t specify not to post drag kids, it is acceptable. See >>56042 as well.

Once we onboard the new farmhands, sweet anon

Captcha will be implemented with LCF 2.0

I agree that jvloggers is not a high quality thread and ends up in the report queue often. However, it doesn’t seem to benefit from the modding we’ve done. From Global Rule 4, “All users are expected to contribute in a constructive way and are discouraged from posting low quality comments and images.” So, please report any low-quality posts as such and we will give it our best try.

Thank you for posting links! From >>>/w/291608 it looks like Emma did a charity stream for Lili and Sharla posted Lili to her Instagram story. Although Lili was posted to the munchie thread, there has been little traction there and the last post about her was 15 days ago >>>/snow/1813682 In cases like this, the mods and farmhands aren’t around to be the police. Anons who enjoy the jvloggers thread should come to some sort of consensus together. From what I can tell, there are two options: Lili is sequestered to the Munchie thread and discussion is slow and disjointed from the vjloggers, or Lili remains in the jvloggers thread despite not being completely relevant, at least the threads of her and the jvloggers stories are easier to weave together. There are many good posts making their points in this thread. You are all adults and the internet is full of software to help you make decisions (strawpoll…) I believe in you.

The wave of twittertards is a plague indeed, please continue to report their infighting.

At this point, it seems unfair to well-intentioned users to ban the use of VPNs entirely.

I understand you find it gross, but pigs mating is not bestiality. At worst, it was a gross joke.

Looks like it was regular discussion by 10-15 different anons. The Jhonen posts number in the 30’s, not necessarily spam. Although there was no drama, discussion is allowed when it’s not infighting or spam.

In most cases, posts taking the bait shit up the thread even more than the initial bait post. Taking the bait is also known to turn into multiple posts of infighting. However, a permaban for simply taking bait is not warranted. Please email administration@lolcow.farm with a screenshot of your ban message.

Shotacon/Lolicon has become an ugly topic on the farm. It seems to bring infighting wherever it comes up, and it’s not something we particularly want to encourage posting about. However, the role of admins is not to ban things we don’t like. So, we’ve decided to host a poll here:
To kill two birds with one stone, the poll combines shota and loli together. If you feel passionate about shota and/or loli as a topic to be preserved or culled, PLEASE VOTE! VOTING ENDS MAY 29th at 11:59PM EST.

Could you link some of her posts so I can take a look?

Please link the “hi cow” posts to make bans easier to issue.

We are doing our best with the staff we have, but we need more hands on deck. If you are concerned about the wellbeing of the site, please consider applying to become a farmhand.

If we were to fire all of our old farmhands, the site would be overrun with garbage. The farmhands we have are consistent and keep you from seeing CP and gore more often than you can know. See the beginning of this post, we have gotten 20 legitimate farmhand applications and out of those, they are not all high quality. The purpose of making a new site is to update the board software so the site doesn’t break as easily, new features can be implemented like CAPTCHA, and security can be improved. Whatever moderation team exists on this version of lolcow will be carried over to Nucow barring some drastic circumstances.

Good catch, yes that is a post that should be reported. Bans have been issued.

Accusations of anon being a newfag are usually more legitimate than moid accusations. If derailing or infighting persists, bans will be issued. If the newfag accusation is wildly inaccurate, anon will just have to live with knowing she’s been called a newfag without reason. Again, if derailing or infighting persists, bans will be issued.

Please link the posts to make it easier to investigate. The report queue easily climbs into the hundreds, if there’s something urgent that needs to be modded in the future please link the post(s). CP/CSAM or anything else we really don’t want anons exposed to is the exception here, you do NOT need to link those posts, just report and move on to avoid further exposure to them.

Regarding the toxoplasmosis samefag incident: the proper response to the samefag would have been to stop after the redtext calling them out. It is well known across the staff that most every decision we make will be met with backlash or pushback in some way. In this case, it seemed like farmhand was aggravated that anons didn’t believe her samefag ban reason and took the extra step to expose anon’s IP address to prove that her ban was correct. This would have been less inappropriate if she had done a better job of censoring anon’s IP address, but she essentially exposed anon’s entire IP which is not something casual users should be subject to. For context, Kiki being revealed as spergchan (lolcow.farm/kiki) is another time anon’s IP was revealed.

Amanda’s thread was autosaged by a staff member who has since left the staff. Her thread is now unsaged and will remain that way unless autosage becomes necessary.

The post you linked was the most recent post after a week of silence in that thread. In this case, my mentality is that the thread has been dead silent and anons just want to discuss cows. It seems a bit too overbearing to issue bans for that. When milk is flowing, nitpicking and discussing things like this tent (kek) are punished because they distract from the milk. We aren’t trying to rule with iron fists, but we have also gotten a lot of feedback that the state of /w/ is abysmal. We have yet to decide on a course of action to remedy this, but as of now you can continue to report posts that don’t fit with a good explanation to help farmhands who don’t keep up with /w/, post in /meta/ when bump/delete posts are occurring, and if you’d like to go the extra mile, we are still accepting farmhand applications.

A ban has been issued. The thread is mostly two users posting with no milk thus far, so it has been locked.

Banners are low priority right now. When we do get around to it, we’ll have users vote on which banners to keep and which to discard. Like anon mentioned, some anons feel strongly about keeping these banners because of their history on the site.

Yes, there are plans to change this. The point of the farmhand search is to have farmhands in every timezone. For now, feel free to browse during US hours or apply to be a farmhand to increase the coverage during your timezone!

how have this many people voted on the poll already despite it only recently being announced and the site being so dead overall?

No. 56300

After this vote, could we have a run-off poll with the two most popular options? I feel like choices 2, 3 and 4 would form together (for example), so it would consolidate all the other opinions into two options.
I feel like that way, rather than satisfying only ~30% (though that percent is subject to change ofc), we could have a "final choice" that the majority would be satisfied with.

No. 56301

They put the link to the poll in the sitewide announcement

No. 56307

This poll is a little surprising. Has there been interest in allowing loli/shota content here? What is the context, specifically? I could understand allowing discussion of it if a hidden (usable) board like /z/ popped up, sometimes women have sick fantasies as well, but unless it's directly related to milk it doesn't really have a place here. I can't really see why nsfw images would be posted either, unless censored and related to milk.

No. 56310

The poll was made because of a huge day long argument about shota in the unpopular opinions thread a week ago

No. 56311

Some voters could be moids or trannies, but unfortunately a lot of women on CC and sometimes here seem to be into shota. I voted for spoilered and censored only if it relates to milk, maybe I should've voted for none at all but I figured sometimes in the youtube or twitch thread screencaps of it get posted in context of some moid liking a tweet or something.

No. 56313

I accidentally voted for none at all ever because I just assumed it was a given that we can post it if it directly relates to milk, since that's how we do it now

No. 56314

Yeah that's how it should be, only posted in reference to milk. I really hope they don't end up allowing shota and loli threads. I think they do that on CC anyway, the shotafags should just go there.

No. 56316

>Has there been interest in allowing loli/shota content here?
This one shotafag who keeps trying to justify it and calling anyone who disagrees a secret pedo
At least I think that's the same poster as the one on /ot/, judging by their tone and posting style and making the same retarded points as the other day. might be the trapfag too for the same reason

Among fujos there's a lot of fujochan overlap, too, and they literally have a board for shota (last I checked ages ago). Let's remember that fujochan's initial userbase came from 4chan fujo threads. So perhaps due to that cross-pollination we're seeing an increase in posts advocating for or defending shotacon.

>I really hope they don't end up allowing shota and loli threads. I think they do that on CC anyway
Last time I checked there's a complete ban on shota and loli. It's fujochan that has a shota board.

I agree. Is this in regards to reaction images as well? I suppose using characters that also are used in cp doesnt really sit well, but lets be real all anime characters look like kids. Is this specifically about porn? Even farmer chan is bordering on a kid at times seems odd to wanna ban that

No. 56346

Fujochan has actually deleted the shota board. The shotafags from there are probably desperate for another imageboard to post it on and so they’re flocking here. I for one hope that loli/shota is banned, if you let them in, you let in all other kinds of degenerates.

No. 56349

Then why did the anon who posted Brittany Venti posting loli on her Facebook in the YouTubers thread get banned with the image deleted by mods if we’re allowed to post it when it’s milk? The whole poll is hilarious to me considering actual child porn gets posted here on the daily but apparently loli is too offensive for our sensitive eyes

No. 56350

Agreed. First its "They're not a REAL child so it's okay" and then they'll start to shoehorn in rape/incest/beastiality porn because "come on it's just fantasy and doesn't hurt anyone guys! It's just 2d!"

No. 56351

someone correct me if I misread it but this is in regards to romantic and sexual images it seems. posting reaction images, fanart, screenshots or whatever else of underage characters would still be fine as long as there is no romantic or sexual context to it

This is actually such a non-issue. Whenever somebody tries to post "shota", it's always a completely sfw picture, and the discussion never turns sexual. But then it immediately turns into a thread derailing argument because one side sees it as pedo talk and is disgusted, and the other one sees it as normal anime talk and is upset that it's being censored.
For me the real issue is the infighting and not the shota itself, so I'm glad admins did this vote. I don't care if shota is banned or not, but I'm glad there will be an official stance forcing the infighting to finally end. Godspeed admins.

Yes, this makes sense when i read more carefully. I guess i just didnt want to believe a female image board actually tried to ask their users if they want to allow porn or not. This is a gossip site. Sometimes uncomfortable screenshots of milky behaviour will be posted, thats why we have spoilers. Women dont need rules to understand what is proper to share. I dont use /ot/, but if that board is used to post porn not for laughter but for cooming, i say just nuke it.

No. 56416

exactly my point. kind of. it feels wrong to punish people who like shota because farmers can't ignore shit they dislike, and mods don't want to enforce their own "no infighting" rule. how hard is it to just ban anons that whine?

No. 56417

I don't get this. Things like Madoka and Kuroshitsuji have obvious shota/loli themes and fanservice, so if discussion "outside of milk" is banned, does that mean we can't discuss them or the main characters unless we're talking specifically about some cow liking them? It's weird. Tbh this would make a lot of anime, manga and games in general kind of a landmine, and doesn't seem enforceable on a large scale unless weeb stuff is banned entirely from /m/. Also, if by "SFW shota/loli", we just mean non-sexual pictures of underage characters like what we normally see posted anyway, I don't see any point in banning that. Just seems like it'd give extra work to mods for performative reasons.
All unwarranted NSFW spam and infighting should be disallowed, but I really cannot find it in me to care about anons talking about their favorite yaoi or whatever under a spoiler in their own designated space. We can all see the difference between unhinged scrotes posting shit to disgust people and actual nonas minding their business.

No. 56419

To be clear, the purpose of this poll is not to decide whether to allow this content, but to formally add to the rules exactly when and how such content can exist on the site, if at all.

As it stands, this content is currently not expressly forbidden anywhere in the rules. So to act as if we have created this poll to try and allow content that was previously banned is disingenuous.

The least restrictive option on this poll would be the rules as written staying exactly as they are, and it currently seems very unlikely that that will be the case.

We keep getting reports over and over again regarding this type of content being posted in the off topic boards. We do not want to add rules that restrict free speech on the site (within the bounds of the law) without the general consent and consensus of our userbase, even if that speech is distasteful.

We are monitoring the poll and votes over time to check whether it is being botted or abused. If the vote is compromised we will use the last legitimate tally to determine the outcome.

NTA, but I've been here from the start of the site, but started using a VPN and clearing my cookies in the past two years because of Shaymin (and Regina) being invasive and trying to fuck with anon's privacy.

it's obvious there are offsite people using vpns and proxies to spam vote, there is absolutely zero chance this site has over 400 regular users that are all voting on the poll in such a short amount of time. the schizo pedo troon was also sharing the poll on some of his social media along with posting in the meta threads so I guarantee he is vpn hopping to vote to allow loli/shota.

the poll was a bad idea. i don't doubt lc gets a lot of traffic from day to day (lurkers) but lurkers =/= lc users and there's no reliable way to tell if it's farmers voting or tourists. staff should sit down and discuss this issue amongst themselves, in my honest opinion. if it's ONLY being banned because of the fights it causes, the solution to that is simple: enforce the rules that are already present on site that regulate infights. ban nonas that reply to other nonas in bad faith because they've seen a picture they dislike.

No. 56439

I don't know the schizo troon's social media, so I don't know whether or not to believe that. I do think that if it was him and other moids botting, we'd probably see a massive, ridiculous uptick in "leave the rules unchanged" votes, but it's still fewer and pretty balanced so far. There's a variety of actual anons with differing opinions here, that's just part of being on an imageboard. Also
>there is absolutely zero chance this site has over 400 regular users
Nona, sorry if I sound harsh but this just isn't true. Do you know how slow this whole site would be if we had less than 400 regular users? It'd nearly be dead, there'd be no fanfare for a /shay/ board, etc etc. Maybe I'm wrong, but I first saw this sort of "We have less than 150 users" or something meme posted at the same time Oldmin gave a poll asking whether we want to keep /2X/ and pink pill/gender critical threads. Most farmers said yes when she wanted no, so she got angry, started claiming all the votes she didn't like were fake, locked the board and anti-/2X/ anons latched on and claimed we have almost no users. We all know that was nonsense, and it's just always seemed ridiculous. Some people even admit to only coming here for specific threads or boards.

>derailing argument because one side sees it as pedo talk and is disgusted, and the other one sees it as normal anime talk and is upset that it's being censored.

this is the real issue that needs to be addressed and it isn't just with the shota content. everytime something gets posted that these people don't like, they derail. every thread on this site has been derailed or is getting derailed at some point in time, and it's ruining the usability and overall experience of being on lolcow. deliberately derailing threads just because you don't like the topic being discussed or because you want to bully other users should be a bannable offense, at minimum a week. if this was early lolcow era it would have been happened already, especially during hellweek. but the current userbase is so low, we would probably only have a dozen people here if that was actually done, so it's a catch 22. curb the content that causes the most autism or get on the ass of the people who are causing the most drama and end up with an even slower site.

Exactly, like all pornography, you'll know it when you see it. You can't discuss anime or manga at all basically without occasionally discussing an underage character but I know a normal image of Detective Conan and an abnormal one. Besides aren't there a million places online to go talk about shota or loli shit? Why do it here? To be fair I don't really post that much in /m/ or /g/ where I imagine a lot of this anime talk happens but if I did, I'd have zero problems with normal, nonsexual chat about underage characters, how is this even an issue or discussion?

he is voting on the poll to allow loli/shota so he can say the site is full of pedophiles and report it to the host, he inadvertently admitted it in a /meta/ thread. it's similar to what he does with his cp spam - posts cp on the site while claiming it's filled with female pedos and reporting it to the sites host to get it taken down.

No. 56452

That's concerning, but he has like 40 followers (probably mostly his own alts) and that post has like 72 views. I don't think he is accounting for ~200 votes undetected with strict checking on, and it seems like he's trying to push this as "proof" against LC. And the site isn't fast, but it's not dead as I said here >>56446, though there are a lot of lurkers. Slowness can be attributed to a large chunk of users only showing up for certain threads, not a lack of users IMO.

Furthermore, scrotes wouldn't be so obsessed with this place.

No. 56459

I'm allowed to make note of something based on my personal observations. if we had 700+ individual women regularly posting on this site it would appear a lot less dead imo. ever since the frequent cp raids and the whole shaymin debacle the site has seemed to have a lot less posts compared to what it did before.
scrotes definitely still would be obsessed with this place even if it's completely dead. crystal cafe is (or was) a relatively small and obscure site that at first was only advertised here but as soon as scrotes found out it's female only they dedicated their lives to shitting it up. just look at the current state of cc - even though it's quieter than the average alt chan scrotes are still regularly raiding and posting garbage there.

Yeah but here's the thing. Your personal observations mean absolutely nothing on an anon board. In fact the majority of predictions in the past few months were wrong, or proven to be false. I'll stick to what the admins see on their end, since they actually see the statistics.

this doesn't specify what the stats are based on though. do we have more individual ips posting, more posts per hour/minute/day, more overall views on the site, or what? it's not just the sheer amount of votes that are suspicious to me but also the poll hasn't even been up 24 hours and already has gotten so many responses.

No. 56488

I agree with scrotes messing with the poll because as you can see with trannies, they will literally spend every day here and trolling because women use this site. thats why they post soyjacks, or post cp links, or whatever else

The poll should be redone to be less vague, either that or adjust for different options. I don't care if someone is discussing Black Butler's Ciel (using him for example) as a character, but if they're making posts talking about a character like him in a sexual way or posting NSFW of him, I think they should be banned. Shota shit is just as bad as loli shit.

Trolling is just as annoying as posting it to be serious. Those threads have so many coomers in there bragging about being into the most degenerate of kinks ever, even opting to not engage in fiction if it doesn't include things like incest, grooming, or pedoshit. Who cares if shota shit gets banned, good riddance.

Exactly this, and the whole reason for the infights seems to be anons letting shotafags live in their heads rent free.

No. 56528

Agreed, and not too tinfoil, but there's no way the majority of people voting on this poll are active users here. Every time someone goes into a thread and sperges about shota, there are always people there who call them out for it. The only times this doesn't happen is in containment threads meant for fujo media; and in those threads, there's always infighting. I highly doubt the majority of people on this board are in favor of it. Plus there's no way there are almost 200 people in those threads that are always in favor of it, they've got to have posted something about it to their friends to get help voting.

Seconding this, the definition of minors is too vague imo. I'm against any nsfw but I'm not sure about the SFW. I don't think that medias like idk Skip and Loafer for exemple ( technically minors in a romantic situation ) should be called shota/loli. Where do we draw the line ? Also I think that putting minors in a non sexual romantic context is very different from puting minors with adults in a non sexual romantic context and I've seen some anons here have the same feelings about it. I do appreciate the admins trying to sort this out though.

No. 56533

I can see your point, but it's reasonable that mods phrased the question assuming we'd know what they meant in this context. Your example sounds purposefully obtuse especially with shotafags crawling around. Also imo redoing the poll only opens it to further voting abuse by moid/tranny raiders, I don't think as many nonas would vote in a redo.

No. 56534

>Your example sounds purposefully obtuse especially with shotafags crawling around
well fuck, I really didn't want to make it sound like that. I was just wondering where the typical highschool romantic story would be considered as shota/loli or not. I was also advocating to forbid SFW of aduts and children together if that wasn't very clear.

No. 56535

kek, i also got banned for "redditspacing" once even though i don't use reddit. farmhands please arrest the admin

No. 56537

technically minors by western standards, but definitely not loli/shotacon, which has a distinct artistic style focusing on prepubescence. it was obvious, to me at least, that the type of example you've provided would be permitted. i would agree that "minors" should be defined more clearly.

No. 56539

samefag, but another example following yours would be inuyasha. kagome is 14 at the beginning of the series, and inuyasha is what like 300 years old? its obviously not loli/shotacon but she is still technically a minor. it also slightly touches on your last point, though i believe inuyasha is actually around 17 years of age, he was just frozen in time.
my point being is that it gets muddy with anime and there should be clarification that loli/shotacon is a specific artistic style within anime focusing on prepubescence.

No. 56540

I was also wondering if admin could clarify what shota is going to be defined as. If a character like Ciel is going to be the obvious shota, where do characters like Venti (genshin), Epel (twst), or Honey (host club) fall? They all look similar to characters like Ciel despite being 16-17, I just don’t want to catch a ban for talking about ships with underage characters
What about a character like Ritsuka from Loveless who is 12 but looks older than all of the above characters?

No. 56542

? Clarifying my point so no one thinks we're discussing actual CP is creepy? Touch grass.

No. 56557

I think it's just if they are underage and were deliberately designed to look that age or younger. But in my opinion, I think people like Venti or Astolfo who are designed to look feminine walk the line depending on what fanart you're posting. Some people draw them to look like shotas, some draw them to look how they do in canon, and others just draw them like traps. I'd like to think most of everyone (at least anime fans) subconsciously are aware of when someone is made to deliberately look like a kid.

No. 56558

Definitely, but the poll looks like it’s likely all discussion about shota outside of milk is going to be bannable, so just judging by picture alone would be impossible in that regard. Obviously just talking about underage characters is fine, but is talk about shipping going to be considered inappropriate for certain underage characters but not all?

I initiated voted to ban any kind of discussion related to lolishota solely because it gets old to see threads derailing with the same twenty “reeeeee pedo “ comments an aditional person who goes “it’s not pedophilia!” and then the circle starts again. It’s incredibly annoying and usually irrelevant for whatever cow is being discussed.

Recent posts made me rethink it; Yeah, the /m/ inhabitants would be indiscriminately affected and make the board nearly unusable. Shota and non-shota-but-still-underage characters make up like 90% of popular anime.
Even among the ones who oppose shotacon, a lot of those people still welcome characters that are 15 year olds like picrel, while condemning 18 year olds like the lucky star characters. Truly Schrodingers pedo.

The “disregard canon ages, we should go with pure looks” doesn’t seem like it’d be able to be properly enforced; I disagree that Venti looks canonically meant to be feminine, I see pure shota fuel. Aether seems more feminine to me, mirroring his twin sister, but I still see people referring to him as shota. I think it’s too subjective to make banning rules properly enforceable.

IMO all discussion of it should be banned from all boards but /m/ where only sfw should be allowed, with suggestive stuff being allowed while spoilered, and NSFW should just be discouraged altogether unless it relates to milk. Not sure about banned, though, again, because of the subjectivity. People are already banned for dumb shit. I got redtexted for telling kys to a scrote. I don’t trust mods to know when Scaramouche is drawn sissified, gender bent, or shotaified.

If we're going by body type, I think "shota" can most easily be defined by proportions like picrel, 100% safe picture but spoilered just in case. It's a younger version of an existing character that toes the line but (usually) looks fine IMO. Characters like Venti and Ciel just look like more andro and sometimes shorter versions of typical anime teenage boys to me.

I agree with most of this, though. Overall, this seems hard to enfoce and a bit knee-jerk. We can all agree on not wanting moid spam or infights about this topic. Since this is a site for grown women, I think we can pull that off without having to ban any topic entirely or disrupt normal fandom discussion. Just like with anything else, anons who don't like it simply shouldn't engage with it, and anons who do like it shouldn't be overbearing or try to force it.

Thank you for responding, maybe I'm just dumb about how things work behind the scenes but how is it possible a thread can be deleted without any admins or jannies knowing about it?

There's a well known shotafag in 4chan named chickn and she has groomed multiple underage boys using /soc/ ranging between 14-17. She also raped one of them afaik(?) as she admitted meeting one underage boy. She's also leaked nudes of most of the underage guys and got them harassed if they stopped interacting with her.
While grooming them, she actively send them shota porn and videochatted them, making them show their bodies while she took pictures to later on leak.
If you think shotafags are still not dangerous, idk what to say to you.

There are a bunch of posts calling it a tranny, even the people exposing its pedo DMs are saying so. Honestly seems like it's a tranny who keeps getting all the proof of its manhood deleted from the archive, but I can't say for sure.

So you think shota is no big deal even if its used to groom underage boys and rape them because you assumed the rapist is tranny because you found a random accusation online? Do you also think the shotafags in /ot/ are trannies because they're defending the distribution of loli/shota and most anons call them males/trannies as well?
Because by that logic, you'd also think these shotafags are also male since they also randomly got accused of being male, right?

Samefagging again because I did decide to look, just for the fuck of it. This took me all of 5 minutes. People who've talked with him have exposed him. He's a tranny catfish who's been at this for years, grooming young boys. Notoriously refuses to VC on Discord. Someone ("Gumshoe", with the Jojo reaction pic) who met up IRL with him at 16 confirmed it's a gross man and he regretted every decision to that point. I'm annoyed that you posted this and feel stupid for even entertaining it for even a second, thereby helping your dumb ass derail the thread. Enough bullshit, discuss the subject like a normal person instead of pushing tranny drama. We already have to deal with Blaine. You are an actual retard for assuming it was a woman "because he said so uwu" and dragging this bullshit here as a "gotcha".

No. 56583

“Shota is used to groom underage boys!!!” There are a million things uses to groom underage boys. NSFW pictures of adults or completely SFW movies are used as tools to tell vulnerable kids “this is what grown ups do, and you’re grown up, aren’t you?” That is WAY more common tactic and you know it.
Statistically, that person is highly likely to be a tranny, if it’s actually a woman (burden of proof is on you) it’ll be an outlier so not worth the autistic screeching. The derailing is so annoying.

No. 56596

Yeah, I agree. It's pretty straightforward. I think arguments like >>56561 are disingenuous. Even thought that character is apparently 15 no one thinks it looks like pedoshit, and saying a pedobait character is a 9000 year old dragon is bullshit, it still looks like a kid.

To clear up further concerns, if the majority of users have voted to restrict this type of content being (as it is right now over 70% of votes favour some type of restriction), then we will implement the restriction with the highest number of votes, even if it does not reach first place. The only way that no restrictions will be imposed is if the two options that represent that choice total more than 50% of the votes.

Given how quickly votes are being cast, we are reducing the timeline of the vote down to 5 days (which will mean it finishes on the 13th). If several similar options are very close we will have an informal run-off vote in a thread in /meta/.

Making decisions behind closed doors isn't the transparency we want to have with users. We acknowledge this was obviously a very awkward and clunky way to do it and we didn't provide enough context. We've updated the poll page to make it clear what is going on.

At this point, I think it's the baiting and infighting that's the problem, not even the subject matter or content. I've literally never seen anons spam shota or NSFW to warrant this kind of attention, but I have seen posters both for/against arguing their gay theoretical opinions about it for hours. I think the admins know this, and that's why it feels so juvenile and embarrassing that the question is whether to add clauses to the rules in order to restrict it, instead of how to better handle our infights. It feels like putting a band-aid on the situation, and giving baiters and shit stirrers on either side "their way".
I know I'm paranoid, but I can't help but feel like this means men will eventually actually be able to control what we talk or post about, in a roundabout way. For example, a small to medium sized Discord server of men/troons can easily decide they're going to post bait and start incessant arguments on any hyper-specific topic. Imageboard-illiterate retards and twitter newfags will eat it up and engage with it every time instead of reporting/ignoring, and rather than addressing how we respond to bait or infights, whatever hot button subject it is will just get banned. It's almost like if the anorectal violence sperg was taken seriously.
Also, on the entire debate: Lolcow will never be anyone's "pure" mental home. About the one thing we can all agree on is fuck men, and that's honestly how it should be. People can hate or like whatever genre of fiction, politician, celebrity, whatever. Some people are almost exclusively posting fearmongering and emotional baits to try and deflect from this fact, but that's the crux of it. I know from certain threads on /g/, /m/, and /ot/ that I'm posting alongside nonas with all sorts of weird and fucked up fetishes and dumb opinions, and that some of you are literal furries, but it just doesn't matter. Come to think of it, the dog and cat hate threads managed to attract actual scrotes, gore spam, and posters casually advising each other on how to to do illegal things like poison other people's pets, but neither generals or the topic itself were ever banned. Mods just ban the insane ones. This is despite the fact that typical posts about disliking dogs or cats easily go in the vent, GIOYC or annoying threads. I'm sure some anons from those threads will get mad at me for talking about this, try to deny it ever happens (we've all seen it, don't bother, idc) and argue it's justified because of free speech, but by that same metric, anything else "sensitive" can easily be handled the same way if only anons knew how to stop taking shitty bait.
>Any posters trying to push deranged or extreme takes = We tell them to shut the fuck up, report them for derailing and infighting. No more attention for them.
>Any kind of advocacy for illegal acts/harm = Ban and sitewide shaming.
>Avatarfagging and constant attention-seeking over one's own autistic interest = Ban and/or sitewide scorn until exile (like seal-chan).
It should be this easy. Outside of maybe how we handle infighing, I don't think the rules need to be changed, or that we need to add fresh restrictions on any one topic, because again, the reaction and eternal slapfights are the real issue.

Yeah? Is that why you accused us of disingenuous interpreting the poll on purpose first?

No. 56630

100% correct. Changing site rules in response to vicious infighting is not an appropriate response. Dealing with infighting quickly and consistently is the solution. Infighting is literally already mentioned in the rules. We're going to fuck with the site rules instead of just enforcing the ones that would solve the entire mess?

No. 56633

You’re fucking stupid if you think that spam threads are gonna be allowed to stay up just because the picture is ‘within the rules’. Saying ‘lol’ is within the rules but it’ll get you banned if spam, off topic, necro and so on. Go Qanon somewhere else.

Do you really think banning shota and loli, one of the most popular genres for men and generally hated by women, is some tranny/scrote psyop to "control lolcow"? You went too deep, anon.

No. 56637

Here is the baby version: Banning discussion of something because certain kinds of posters can't stop arguing about it does nothing but infantilize us all, and it make it so scrotes can have our speech censored with enough pressure on any topic. Literally anything you can think of can be described as "generally hated by women" if the speaker wants to push that angle enough. This is because we're fucking human beings with a variety of opinions. Ban scrotes, ban spammers, ban trannies, ban infighters. Stop shitting the bed. Simple as.

Nobody is even regularly posting NSFW shota on lolcow aside of spamming scrotes. It’s amazing how indignant people can be over a non pressing issue. You’re all shitting yourselves over something that literally does not happen.
Where are the hoards of shotacons making threads craving for visibly underage NSFW? How many times have any of you honestly seen a sizable chunk of users banding together to cheer for pictures of sebaciel exploring each other’s yaoi holes? Only significant times it gets posted is in bad art thread for the shock factor, and it didn’t warrant any of this shit fest from the incompetent admins. But thanks for the infighting over some hypothetical cryptid pedo fujo and her two or three friends, farmhands. Great work.

K-pop, Pro-ana topics and to some extent, vtubers for a time got banned too, was that some 4d moid chess move or just that the mentally ill posters were universally hated and insufferable with their infighting and spergery, bringing in an userbase nobody wants here? Some topics are doomed to fail and dying on the hill of defending shota and loli is some really terrible optics.

No. 56645

What shota userbase do we actually even have? Are they frequent posters in the /m/ or fujo threads? If they're here, there's not even enough of them to sustain a single containment thread. I have only ever seen scrotes baiting and dumb anons swallowing that bait, and now they're here pretending it's just about this ghost shotafag demographic and they'll totally stop infighting if the topic is banned. That's not what's going to happen, and you know it.

Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it doesn't happen around the board apparently enough to be reported in such volumes for the mod team to take action, I've seen it around /m/ and /ot/ plenty. If you think that banning shota and loli is a slippery slope into losing a female space to scrotes then I suggest you leave, in fact I encourage it.

No. 56650

The infights are what's reported. I'm pretty sure the admins have said this, too, so I'm not sure why you're trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes. All examples of shotafags being a problem are described as the same arguments I'm talking about, no one has said "The shotafags keep spamming their hentai everywhere" in any /meta/ complaint thread because that's straight up never what happens. These problem posters pretty much never seem to actually post any shota pictures, probably because discussion is not the point for them. It's a bunch of men who like to make women mad, and they know they don't have to save or post any pictures to get replies here. If you think women are adult babies who need entire subjects blocked from discussion or else we collectively lose our minds and can't discuss things like sane/normal people, maybe you should leave, because that's clearly a you problem.

No. 56654

Of course it's the infighting, the pics they post are pretty mild but sometimes the accompanying text is creepy and annoying as fuck talking about boy this shota that which is probably what other fujos hate. And to top it off whenever you talk about how disgusting shota and shotafags (along with lolifags) are, even if you mean the really nasty type and not the mild pics that are posted here, they will always come to defend it all as "not real so nothing wrong with it"

No. 56655

If admin banned all shotafags I bet both the infight and real cp spam would slow down. I don't understand why anons don't see that the pedos that have been religiously defending shota are probably the same ones posting CP behind VPNs, one shotafag even got mad and didn't believe me when I told her even with a VPN she's traceable so I'm starting to believe they're the same people more and more.

No. 56656

Why do you think real cp spam would slow with a new rule when posting cp is already a bannable offense, kek. This site is such a wasteland these days

No. 56657

>why do you think banning pedos will slow down cp spams when pedos are the ones who are spamming?
Are you retarded? To spam, you need content and the ones who spent hours defending their pedophilia are the types to have this content on their computers ready to spam. If they got device or rangebans they couldn't evade, the spams would lessen in quantity.
How can you not understand that banning pedos will lessen pedos who spam?

No. 56661

And other topics that cause constant infighting and cultivate a shitty userbase get banned or have their threads locked because they're hogging mod resources, it's not a new thing. Why are you so hellbent on defending shota and loli if you don't even see it being posted here? If it barely exists, what integral board feature of value are we losing by banning it? Drawn child porn is even illegal in plenty of western countries so it's not something outlandish to demand, in fact it's quite sensible to not want to see it. And don't try to claim "b-but it's not all nsfw", shota and loli as a genre are quite explicitly used to refer to porn.

These pedos wanted shota be allowed so they could spam it and make anons uncomfortable %100!they literally complain about real cp being removed fast in all the infights and say they dont want shota/loli to be removed as well, it's obvious that drawn contented is the only ones they can get away with posting and they don't wanna lose it.
Those are definitely %99 male anons or some female pedophiles.

No. 56666

Because “drawn child porn” includes all depictions of minors, not just the ones you have deemed look too young. I don’t want /m/ to get nuked because admins are forced to ban all NSFW images of characters under 18. I can’t comprehend how your moral standing applies to some children but all, not characters 15, 16, 17. Those characters are children too, why do you not care about NSFW images of them being posted?

No. 56668

I've already explained why I don't believe in banning any particular topic rather than banning tards for sperging and infighting. It sets the worst possible precedent. If it was about Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, I'd say the same thing. The autism will migrate, because it's not even the subject that's the problem, but how our userbase reacts and self-rewards for certain behaviors.
There's little to no "userbase" to speak of, the problem is bigger than what it's being made out to be, and I maintain that. If you think moids and trannies seeing this don't know now how easily they can brigade us just by shitposting hard enough, you are giving them too much credit. I guess another reason I have stakes in this is because it reminds me of how subjects I actually do enjoy (pinkpill, 2X, anti troon discussion) got banned for years over trannies and men starting infights, spamming and destroying a bunch of threads.
>And don't try to claim "b-but it's not all nsfw", shota and loli as a genre are quite explicitly used to refer to porn.
So what porn gets posted? Again, where is the userbase to make a problem of? Are they in the room with us right now? It's always shitty moid bait, and they will keep baiting, and we will pay the ultimate price as the focus keeps changing until we can't post or do shit.

No. 56669

>complaining about nsfw images of underage children possibly getting removed
Really honoring your satanic postnumber, huh. Why are you so angry about the possibility of not being able to post porn of underage kids if you're not a pedo?

No. 56670

Nta and I'm personally tired of shotafags defending depictions of sexualized prepubescent children so stubbornly, but it's obvious you don't know much about female otaku. There is always a "shota type" of character in any anime-style franchise with a large bishounen cast, even if said character is not actually a child and just looks really young, which seems to be the only real kind of shota characters being posted. I really don't think those posters are spamming CP (which btw, at least from the few times my eyes have been assaulted with it, seems to always be of girls).

Anyways I don't know how shotafags expect everybody to not think they're pedophiles, when they don't even bother explaining this distinction or specifying what kind of pictures or characters they want to post, and instead keep defending ALL degenerate depictions of children.

No. 56672

I’m asking a legitimate question, do you want to ban all NSFW images and discussion of minors, or just specific characters you think look too young?

No. 56673

Are YOU retarded? There is no "spamming" because spam isn't allowed on lc in general, it's global rule #9, and global rule #4 if you want to get technical. Banning a subject isn't going to magically stop bad actors from spamming, they do that anyways.
Are any of you losers actually interested in discussing what's best for lc, or are you just taking the opportunity to moralfag us all to death?

No. 56674

Even if that anon tries to avoid this, at least a few posters (not all) are "anti" types who most likely will want that, and after that it'll be "problematic" content in general, so discussing things with ethically wrong/questionable themes like in American Psycho, Game Of Thrones or Flowers In The Attic will probably garner reports and complaints too. This is on top of scrotes ruining threads on purpose to fuck up conversations.

No. 56676

In the past, whenever shota gets posted that anon gets banned. I've even seen anons be banned just for saying they like shota. For years it seems like it was already a bannable offense. I voted, but tbh I still don't understand what the poll is for or what exactly is supposed to be changing.

I know, I just find it ironic there’s so much screeching about pedophiles without realizing that pedophiles also prey on teenagers. It’s like they’ve conveniently excluded themselves from the discussion by saying “well 16 year old anime boys don’t look like teens, they could well be adults!” (The exact same thing people who like shotas say) It’s incredible watching them do mental gymnastics around their own flawed morality.

No. 56679

Samefag, I say shota cause anons keep talking about that specifically for some reason, but this goes for loli too. Also the rules page hasn't been updated since like 2016 so idk why we're still using that as a strict guide of the current rules.

No. 56681

Thank you anon. Yeah I did read that post and the new description on the poll. The way admins wrote it makes it seem like they themselves weren't clear on this because
>the purpose of this poll is not to decide whether to allow this content
Doesn't really make any sense when you consider that the options on the poll are whether or not that content should be allowed and
>we believe it would be best to formally lay down whether content of this type should be allowed to be posted in any capacity
Idk. Messy, but I'm not too bothered because I trust that the result of all of this will be good.

You're totally right, reading it again. It does seem contradictory at best, ass covering at worst. I get why anons are getting thrown off now

Personally, I think this is happening because the mod team itself is split on whether lolisho is the devil or not, and some of them just don't care. I've seen farmhands delete files and call nonnas disgusting for posting caps of milk related to discussions, and I've seen what you're referring to here >>56676, as well as anons openly discussing shota without issue.
The problem seems to just be infighting, and I wish cerbmin had waited to get more farmhands and strategized a way to control it before doing something this drastic. None of the other topics annoying anons shit up threads with are getting this treatment, though I wouldn't be surprised if that happens, too.
