There have been a couple of changes over the past few months and we believe there is always room for improvement. We've taken the time to apply a few changes to the current rules. Global rules apply to all boards and now specific rules will only apply to /pt/ and /snow/ respectively. The rules page will be better formatted soon, in the meantime read the rules when you have the chance. Here are some of the major changes.
•derailing on any board is a bannable offense
For example, taking bait from robots on /ot/ or derailing Onision threads by nitpicking Lainey's ring for days
•Using lolcow for attention or profit is a global offense
For some reason some people seem to think advertising doesn't fall under this. To that person, stop advertising your loli discord server.
•Abusing the reporting system can now warrant a ban
This isn't that much of a problem but do take the time to read through this.
Rules for /pt/ and /snow/:
•mini-modding is now an official ban offense
•The definiton of cow-tipping has been expanded (the most important change)
Do not alert a subject to their thread or take any other action to lead them to lolcow.farm (cowtipping).
∙Do not contact a subject's family/ friends/ etc.
∙Do not use lolcow.farm to crusade against a cow (not your personal army).
∙Do not organize raids on twitter, twitch or other social media.
∙Do not brag about or announce having personal contact or interactions with a cow unless you're also delivering newly obtained or confirmed information.
•Rule 8 " The use of sage in /snow/ does not permit a violation of the rules stated above."
For example, saging does not give you an excuse to blogpost.
In other news, we have stumbled upon a Patreon with various entertaining perks. This Patreon does not under any circumstances whatsoever in any way, shape or form help us cover the fees of running lolcow, as such a thing would be frivolous and quite frankly tasteless. We would never support the notion of crowd-funding the new, more expensive server we moved to.https://www.patreon.com/farmhand
