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.

Global Rules:
•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.

Sounds great. Thank you, team.

Is posting photos which include minor or infant relatives of the subject against the rules?

No. 5705

You may want to update the red text and the accompanying link on each page that reads, "Both have been updated on 06/24/2017. You can discuss the update here."

read the rules because it's always been against the rules to post underaged subjects

Two days ago I got a ban warning for reporting posts accusing me of being the subject or one of her stans. The warning stated (paraphrasing) "Don't report posts you don't agree with."

Which rule does this behavior violate? I was looking for it in the rules to report a post. Turns out I happened to be banned for that exact reason fml

No. 6815

Will there be a new General Complaints/Issues thread?

Why was the Technical Help & Feature Suggestions thread locked?

Why was the Official Art thread pinned?
