Hellweek is over! Share your thoughts

File: 1705870687091.png (809.53 KB, 800x629, hellcow.png)

No. 67909

Hellweek is over. In the next day or so we will update this thread with some statistics about moderator actions over the last 2 weeks, as well summary of what we have learned and any changes for the future.

The core of this community is (and always has been) discussing and documenting lolcows. This site exists to serve farmers. Part of the reason that board culture has degraded as much as it has is due to the number of posters who are not here for the milk, but instead to use /ot/ and /g/ like a chatroom and without any attempt to integrate or use the site as intended.

The quality of posting has also dropped significantly in recent weeks, particularly in relation to blatant bait being posted in /ot/, /g/, and in milk threads that attract a certain crowd (such as Tradthots). A lot of this traffic is from ban-evading spammers and tourists posting in bad faith, but they are only able to disrupt threads as much as they do because of how many users keep taking the bait. We have noticed that many long-term users see this for what it is and have been calling it out, but the number of other users who continue to engage with it have been exacerbating this problem significantly.

If you are not a farmer, you are merely a guest here. You are a welcome guest as long as you integrate and follow the rules. If you continuously post without regard for the rules or board etiquette and culture, that privilege can and will be revoked. Frequent rule-breaking, infighting and trolling will be met with a permanent ban. You can screech as much as you want about how the site will die without your low effort shitposts, but we do not care. Slower boards with better quality posts is preferable over the current state of the site.

During this Hellweek, we want to get the site health and quality of posting back on track, and we will be facilitating this in a number of ways:

  • All topicless, chat-style/shitposting threads will be locked for the duration. Do not make new threads to replace them. Do not try to cicumvent this by giving them new titles.
  • The cooldown required between making posts will be increased to 2 minutes (it is currently 30 seconds)
  • As it has been a particular problem, all posts breaking global rule 7 (racebaiting) will receive 3 day unappealable bans. Users with very little else in their post history will be assumed to be posting in bad faith and be permanently banned
  • Blackpill posting outside of /2X/ will be treated as bait and banned accordingly
  • Every response to blatant bait will receive a ban. Report bait and do not respond
  • Every post accusing someone of being a scrote/tranny will receive a ban. Report suspected males and do not respond
  • Reporting someone you disagree with for being a moid/tranny will receive a ban. The vast majority of reports we receive accusing a user of being male are incorrect. Women are not a monolith and can have opinions that you do not like
  • Reporting posts for retarded reasons will receive a ban, e.g. an anon posting an unpopular opinion in the Unpopular Opinion thread is not bait, please use your brain

As always, please use this thread to provide feedback on moderation decisions throughout the week!

No. 67917

>The vast majority of reports we receive accusing a user of being male are incorrect.
But all we have to go on is suspicion unless the poster literally says "As a man," or something. How are we supposed to know if we're correct before we report? What if some anon is posting shit like "she deserved to be raped and abused it's her own fault" (paraphrasing but something I have seen before and reported as a moid)?
It's Hell Week after all so by all means be more strict about it but what are the exact criteria here? Only report for being male if they explicitly mention their cock and balls?

No. 67918

If someone posts something like that it's probably safer to just report it as bait

No. 67919

please just report them as bait as >>67918 has said. Generally, if the post is very clearly a moid EG 'as a man…', 'my dick/balls…' report them as a moid. It has to be extremely obvious and/or there is proof and evidence of the accusation that goes beyond 'they use moidspeak!'.

That's always been how it is. It's in the rules. You can't actually reliably ban posters for being male on an anonymous site, mods just have to go off of them announcing themselves.

Fuck yeah, this is excellent news

No. 67929

I’m sorry but “female intuition” isn’t some ironclad thing especially not over text. Most moid accusations are on the basis of stereotypes or even just someone expressing themselves bluntly. Unless you want DNA verification to post here there will always be moids who just don’t announce themselves, sorry.

No. 67930

>lolcow is an imageboard for females
But technically, according to the rules, it isn’t, right? It’s a gossip site that has a rule firbidding moids attention whoring by mentioning they are a man. I don’t think ”you can’t use this site if you are a man!!” rule could be reliably enforced though.

>our feminine intuition

That’s pretty hard based on a single post though. Like think about how many tradthots there are in the world? You disagree with them and they have opinions men would have but they are still women.

No. 67931

The rule has always said that you can't announce yourself. It was originally meant to keep moids from posting "As a man, I wouldn't fuck her" and "man here, I'd date you" posters, not literally keep men from posting. We can only discourage it and make it boring for them by not replying and just quietly reporting.

No. 67932

Ntayrt and I admit I’m a newfag, but really? Even if it’s impossible to verify someone as male, I thought it was at least unwanted for men to be posting here regardless of if they announce it or not.

At this point is there a way to separate /ot/ from the rest of the site? The milk has been dry for a while and unless you are super into nitpicking fat whore's rolls there isnt much milk to talk about anymore. I think the lack of milk is also part of the problem, pretty much all /snow/ threads have been infested by the worst kind of posters that just nitpick, blogpost, dont integrate, derrail and racebait without contributing much. It's a shame crystal cafe has dead moderation.

I think the problem is that a lot of cows started with “what do u think about x?” discussion threads and now that you need to collect all the info, nobody really collects info/screencaps outside of the thread starter until the cow is established. I’ve seen kiwi ppl discuss in one thread and PM each other to make a master post. I think that’s why we barely have new cows.

No. 67974

I remember farmhands banning typing in all lowercase back in the day due to sticking out too much and lack of integration. We need to implement that more, not all anons who type like that are bad but most are unfunny unintegrated loosers that come straight out of social media with shitty memes.

No. 67978

Really? I've been here 6+ years and remember discussion about it possibly being bannable but that never coming to fruition because too many people disagreed about whether it should be or not. I agree about the stan twitter lingo and nonsense like "male lesbian" – maybe it should be just a general integration thing like paragraphs vs reddit spacing, like an unintegrated post may or may not have either of these issues but having them makes them more unintegrated if that makes sense? I also feel like diversity of typing styles can help to make it more anonymous because rigidity in requirements may lead to other tells because not everyone will type exactly the same even if they try to. Maybe I'm overthinking it kek

yes, please report those as 'integrate' or 'twitter lingo'.
no we aren't going to enforce that, as the other farmer said our own staff type that way (myself included). However, if a person's typing pattern is egregious enough that it starts looking like personalityfagging, please report them as such and we will take a look.

Nevermind. This plus not being allowed to point out or report moids unless they explicitly mention their scrotum is just contraproductive. They'll use this as an excuse to bait freely all day.

The dumbass shit thread one kind of made me cringe because anons were egging on the anon posting them by saying it was funny and cute iirc. I feel like not to long ago anons would've been told to stop being retarded and fuck off if they posted vocaroos.

Samefag, but also notice how males posted back then and they weren't banned. Because despite what the retards who post these days say, lolcow did not used to be a female only website, we just banned males who identified themselves. If you see old Hellweek threads, it was never about erradicating males completely but forcing them to integrate and stop attentionwhoreing:
I don't have a problem with the site being female only because I'd rather not interact with males either, but to act as if this has always been the way is just pure newfaggotry

No. 68002

Nta but I knew someone was going to say this. Yeah no shit there used to be threads for that, but over time they became less common since it just looks like attention whoring. Same reason why that thread where you fill out a template about yourself from around the same time as that thread is now dead, anons would shit on people who fill it out.

This. I've been lurking for almost 10 years now and just because vocaroos were posted once years and years ago doesn't mean it wasn't attention whoring. Why defend the retards who are posting this shit in every thread recently? Those are the real newfags.

No. 68006

Overt males should be banned, that's it. It's always been that. But sometimes those males are quite obvious even without announcing themselves. If they stay hidden and don't cause trouble who cares, that doesn't mean the moderation should be lesser or let their obvious male bait go unbanned more. It can stick out quite a lot. They're fucking annoying, that's the whole point.

No. 68007

They're not mutually exclusive from my experience. You get pleanty of cross over.

No. 68008

Just to clarify, posts that are obviously male should still be reported even if they haven't literally mentioned they have a dick, e.g. the ban evading scrote that keeps thirstposting in the pro-ana scumbags thread. The issue we have is that anons' intuition is really not as good as they think. The vast majority of posts reported for being a scrote/tranny are regular board users posting in a way that another anon does not like, having an opinion they feel a woman should not have, etc. Any user reporting a post for being male where it is actually a scrote will never be banned or punished for it.

Please report any instance of anons posting like this if it doesn't make sense in the context of the thread and/or is clearly for attention. Attentionwhoring does not belong on an anonymous imageboard.

Do you use the tranny red text just for fun sometimes then? Because I got a temporary ban once out of nowhere and the ban reason said “hi stephan” and I have no idea what it even referred to. My post history should have made it blatantly clear that I’m not a troon. Although other anons have said that the mods don’t even check post history and that it isn’t reliable or something

This is kind of confusing. So what separates the male posts from regular anons who have misogynistic opinions? Like the example in the spoiler here >>67917 and similar things like that, how would anyone know the difference?

As the other farmhand mentioned, that post is rulebreaking either way, so you can just report it as the rule it's breaking (bait in this case). However, anons reporting posts like that for being male aren't the ones causing problems, it's the ones like picrel that we're ultimately trying to stamp out. We get hundreds of reports a day, it makes our jobs harder when we have to sift through frivolous reports. False moid/tranny accusations make up the bulk of the pointless reports, which is why we're targeting them during Hellweek.

>But what if they just continue as usual after the week is over?

ideally we would just have more hellweeks like we used to in the past, but honestly i was thinking the same thing. no one seems to have the balls to just come out and say it but the board has been infested with fucking normies like >>67938 pointed out. i know people get mad when you use terms like that but it's the absolute truth, i am not just saying it to be an asshole or offend people. things wouldn't be so bad here if a lot of the oldfag posters hadn't left/been bullied off the boards, and tbh sometimes it's hard to continue to post here with my own personal responsibilities but also trying not to get into it too much with the people who have come here now.

people do not want to admit that it's more than just twitterfags/discordfags/etc. posting on the boards…they've done a lot to try to change the board culture in the 2 years since we've seen the decline of the boards and imho done a pretty good job of erasing the history of lolcow. i've been here for a long time; we've always had groups of curious cruisers coming in from places like youtube, instagram, tik tok, twitter, but it's never been this bad where they've completely taken over and there's a definite split between the site. i've never been a big /ot/ user but i definitely enjoyed going there when i needed to cool down or just wanted to take a break from gossiping. these groups usually leave after a couple of months because most of them don't like the anonymity of imageboards as they can't obsessively target and harass specific users. i know too we've always had personalityfags but apart of the reason why they've gotten so bad recently is because the normies keep feeding into it. before we all knew just to ignore them and they would eventually, go away and find somewhere else to haunt.

i've also watched these people terrorize older posters who have been here for years in the hopes that they could totally rewrite the history of lolcow. it's become obvious now as whenever you bring up staminarose or early lolcow culture in any capacity, you'll get accused of being a "scrote" or trying to "bait" people because early lolcow was apparently full of scrotes. i've also seen these people say things like "lolcow TO ME is xyz thing that is totally not what this site about". just totally ignoring years and years of history to fit within their own personal narratives, it's bizarre. so to me these people definitely know what they are doing and even if they weren't necessarily all colluding with one another to change the board culture to what they want, their end goal was to gentrify and astroturf the boards and turn it into facebook 2.0.

i don't want to go on too long because i am probably going to get jumped for even posting this but…idk what to think anymore. i like cerbmin, and i've been happy with the moderation so far so i don't blame them for it at all and i hope they can continue to keep lolcow alive as best as they can. but i think this is just a wider net issue as other communities are complaining about the same thing. ever since covid, things online haven't been the same. too much mental illness, too much paranoia from hate watch groups who want to herd everyone onto the big platforms because apparently posting on imageboards makes you a literal terrorist.

Thank you for this. In the past month, I've noticed a sharp decline in quality on /g/ to the point where it's nearly unreadable, and honestly I gave up on /ot/ two years ago. I wondered if I was just too sensitive, so I feel relieved to know that it's not just me. I hope that this Hell Week will discourage bait posters and bait takers alike, and that overall we'll see more effortposting across the site.
I think you're right that this issue goes beyond lcf. it's a cultural problem with complicated roots that I'm not sure any of us can adequately address… but all change starts with the individual. Speaking your mind and sharing your perspective as a genuine oldfag brings us one post closer to a healthy and thriving imageboard. I hope that more people will offer commentary on their hopes and fears for the future of the site. Whatever the results of this Hell Week, at least we can say that we tried.

Since when? There’s always been a culture of “women only” here, and i don’t give a fuck what you say, you CAN tell when a poster is male. They make blatant threats toward posters over nothing and they use misogynistic language that women don’t use. We can tell.
For other anons concerned about this i guess just report it as bait instead of as scrote unless they specifically mention their dick. RIP to all the real ones who don’t do this and suffer a ban for trying to keep the place scrote-free.

No. 68068

Its just arbitrary clearly and up to the farmhands personal opinion and whoever recently gets their panties in a twist lurking. Black pill posts are also considered bannable outside the dead hidden board so that should tell you the whole "women are not a monolith claim is true up until women say something un-befitting of the monolith.

Also this forced theme is an eyesore, please enable the option for other ones back again.

I am a little confused about these two rules and how they work with each other:
>Report suspected males and do not respond
>Reporting someone you disagree with for being a moid/tranny will receive a ban. The vast majority of reports we receive accusing a user of being male are incorrect. Women are not a monolith and can have opinions that you do not like
So, we’re supposed to report posts that we suspect are moids (makes sense), but also if we happen to be wrong, we get banned? This doesn’t make any sense to me, seems like it will just lead to nobody reporting unless a moid is actually posting his literal penis in the thread.

No. 68070

I think the decline began with the absolutely retarded shitposting threads in /ot/. The posting style took over dumbass shit and other threads as well.
And then the worst happened, we got the newfags who think this is their chatroom and then they don't want to integrate.
Putting some sort of effort in your post should definitely be encouraged now, that is one way to combat it.

I think so too, but farmhands say now that “most of us are wrong” so will start banning us for reporting moidy posts. This really seems like a mistake to me because in my opinion, as a female-only site, having farmhands check if someone posting moid like takes is a man should be a basic function of their duties, not an “annoyance” to be clamped down on.

they do though kek. i’ve also been accused of being a scrote just for posting astolfo or whatever (was never banned as mods probably saw my extensive post history on 2X and the troon hate threads — at the time, i’ve definitely switched ips by now), other anons get accused of being a scrote the moment they say something someone doesn’t like (i am guilty of this), tradthots exist, female scatfags and nazis exist, etc. you really can’t deduce sex over text, at all. not unless it’s something incredibly obvious like defending a scrote being shat on, or trying to perv on other anons. as the op says

No. 68083

I can understand that farmhands do this to cull the amount of reports they get on the daily like the example posted upthread. But phrasing it like that along the recent redtexts for "scrotefoiling" seem like a step in the wrong direction, especially since ther ARE moids larping as women on the off topic boards and even some cow threads for various reasons. Luckily in the cow threads, they always reveal themselves eventually kek. I guess those can be reported as bait but it still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, because it leaves room for them to go on atrocious astroturfing and larps all over the website and build a post history and then claim they're just a woman with different opinions. I guess we just gotta trust the farmhand's judgement then..

No. 68085

I completely agree.

>There’s always been a culture of “women only” here
No there hasn't. LC was made because flan shut down Stamina Rose over pt getting accused of being a pedo. LC was not made to be a female only image board, both LC and SR were made to catalog cows from /cgl/ because moot banned the threads. The first admin of LC was male. LC becoming a female image board happened over time. It was always a female majority site because the original userbase was from /cgl/ which was a majority female board on 4chan. I'm not complaining that LC is now a woman only IB, I prefer men not being here, it's that denying the sites history and trying to revise it into being something it never was is exactly what >>68056 is referring to.

As has already been suggested, report it as bait. If the farmhand also suspects that the poster is a moid, they will check their post history and come to far more accurate conclusion than an ordinary farmer ever will. I don't know why this is hard to understand.

Report and ignore. Responding to male posters is responding to bait which is bannable regardless of if it's a moid or woman posting the bait.

No. 68092

TBH the women-only label mostly arose from the userbase and from OG admin liking to surround himself with women who also liked having him as an admin because he seemed non-threatening. I think it should remain being run by women for women but clearly a lot of anons have no idea it was never meant to be a female separatist community. Excluding men was meant to to keep away the men who at the time were already honing in on /cgl/ as the board that had the most women.

No. 68093

No. 68094

Agreed, I feel like everyone has gotten accused of being a scrote on here at least once at this point.

Agreed 100%

I feel like the milk collecting farmers have also been leaving over the years, or getting lazy. In snow I’ve noticed a lot of screenshots of videos instead of them just posting the video they’re talking about. In the scumbags thread especially, I saw an anon request someone post a cows IG story and three anons said they didn’t know how too. I’ve posted sites that download IG stories and conversion sites at least 3 times before but they don’t bother learning, one of them even said “I don’t care.” I honestly think the majority of the good farmers are gone and now we just have TikTok zoomies left.

No. 68095

I think reporting scrotefoiling replies is fair, but farmhands banning anons for reporting people they think are male is not the right move. Again, as I said, as a female only site, I think checking if suspicious posters are male should just be considered part of farmhand duties, yes sometimes moid reports will be wrong, but like they say we’re not omniscient and maintaining healthy suspicion towards suspiciously moid like posts is good. Does anyone get what I’m saying here?

kekkk do newfags really not know how lc started? the idea that women aren't capable of being hostile or having "wrong" opinions is so absolutely retarded. women are varied and some of them can be mean, misogynist, etc. look at the website you are on. some anons main "gotcha" during infights is scrotefoiling and it's getting tired. farmhands are making the right decision for hellweek imo.

one thing I do agree on is that anons seem to be extremely hostile lately. whether it's frustration over newfags, or newfags trying to adopt edgy imageboard/chan attitude it really ruins threads when they devolve into retarded infighting.

No. 68100

Just kill all of the offtopic boards except one. We don’t need three. I vote that /m/ deserves to stay because it’s the most fun OT board in my opinion but it’s also probably the least relevant to the sites intention (except for the autist threads)

No. 68101

The problem is not the non-drama boards. It's how they're used now.
Many positive things have come from these boards like the movies nights and the doodle boards. LC has evolved and discussing all sort of topics is part of what the site is now. And as others have said, no matter how things started, having an imageboard for women that doesn't tolerate troons and other scrotes is very valuable.

No. 68102

We just need 1 offtopic board. Giving too many boards creates the idea that we want and need more offtopic threads. We have as many OT boards as cow boards and I can't even fully count /w/ because I don't understand why most of the threads are in there, many should either go to /snow/ or get locked and we already come from a weeb board so there's no point in segregating weeb drama. /m/ is unnecessary, was copied from crystal.cafe in some ill-fated attempt to get users to cross over but it backfired so hard because it's mostly a board to sperg out about yaoi and irl scrotes. We should go back to having /pt/ and /snow/ for cows and /g/ for some girltalk threads and casual topics. Chat threads can go. They merely replaced the Discords that used to be great for getting all the attention whores tired out. Make personalityfags and chronic baiters battle it out on shitcord again instead of fighting it out on the board, I guarantee infighting would go down and the remaining infights would at least be about a topic that's being discussed rather than 24 posts back to back vagueblogging at each other with SHUT UPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP FAGGOTTT. Someone should a new official lolcord as a distraction for all these morons and I guarantee shit'd improve. We've always had on- or offsite chat platforms for these people and it never used to be this bad until we moved all the chatting onto the site.

Mods should do more quality control on what threads are allowed and discourage spamming better. My point is all these threads would be fine if they weren't overpowering the rest of the site so much. I'd even be for a minimum character requirement or a longer post cooldown to force users to make higher quality posts. Anything to discourage the chat style spamming

No. 68107

>farmhands banning anons for reporting people they think are male is not the right move
it’s the right move. 9 times out of 10 when someone is called a scrote it’s because they made another poster angry. bad = male. (you) don’t own the site and you should be smacked for wasting a moderator’s time, it’s a great rule.

No. 68108

leave everything the way it is and just add one single thread for infighting, like a fight club. it’s a containment thread and reports within it earn a 3 day ban. why delete the off topic threads or even the more chat-like threads, i don’t feel they’re the source of the issues as these issues have only cropped up recently.

and anyway irl is the source of the issues. people are stressed and tired. you can remove fun things willy nilly but the hateful retards will always remain. we will just see more blog posting and venting in cow threads in fact. or anons will find a work around, not a good solution.

Maybe just make the off topic boards hidden for a bit if this hellweek doesn't help?

No. 68113

Well, agree to disagree I suppose. When anons reporting suspicious posts in good faith start getting banned for being wrong, people will stop reporting suspected moid posts just in case they might be wrong and get banned, leading to actual males slipping into the general population since everyone is now afraid to report them. Mark my words, this is going to be the straw that broke the camel’s back for the few women who still visit this site.

No. 68115

> people will stop reporting suspected moid posts just in case they might be wrong and get banned
no actually, their reports will simply be more substantiated and better thought out. personally i’ve yet to banned for reporting a plausible male, possibly because i understand lc wrongthink is dumb and can tell the difference between “thing i do not like” and “this is pinging me; i think it’s a male”.
>thing i do not like: certain anime character from a big boob isekai show, anon casually calling me retarded for a benign opinion
>suspicious male post: any opinion taking my post in the worst way possible and reframing it so it’s ackshully in support of males (see: the big long infight in /ot/‘s fandom salt thread the other day), any post that comments on a cow’s sex appeal (e.g.: no man would fuck this whore)

No. 68117

> personally i’ve yet to banned for reporting a plausible male,
Yes, because until now it was not bannable unless extremely egregious.
I also said “in good faith” for a reason, which your bootlicking response conveniently ignores. My entire concern is that farmhands don’t seem to acknowledge in the rules that there is a clear difference between “good faith yet incorrect analysis” and the examples you cite, and that they will be banned in the same way, leading anons to not attempt to report males at all anymore.

No. 68118

Little kids and newfags do though.

No. 68119

I would think that farmhands are able to distinguish between a report made in good faith and a report made by a retard. If a poster reports every post that disagrees with them or for completely inane reasons then that person deserves to be banned for repeatedly wasting the farmhand's time. If a poster makes a genuine report because a post is suspicious, a farmhand would also be able to identify that same suspicion and they can then confirm that it is a moid by looking through post history. It's bad that has to be this way but it has been an issue for years and certain posters have ignored all the warnings from farmhands and various admins. Cerbmin is not the first admin to ban scrotefoiling.

Please read the OP.
>Reporting someone you disagree with for being a moid/tranny will receive a ban
NOT that any report that isn't correct will receive a ban. 9/10 tranny/moid reports we get are not in good faith. If the post you report is very plausibly male you will not get a ban regardless of whether you were right. However, the userbase as a whole is not as good at identifying male posters as they think they are. Additionally, many users abuse the report system to try and silence any dissenting female voice by accusing her of being male. We get reports like "this has to be a tranny because a woman wouldn't have taste this bad!!" pretty much daily, or users reporting posters they had a disagreement with for being male because their feelings got hurt

Perfect example above. The poster you are referring to was not a scrote. Telling yourself that they have to be male because a woman can't possibly act that way is part of the problem. They were still breaking the rules and they were banned, but not for being a male

For those of you concerned about the theme, we're having it sitewide for one day and only on /meta/ thereafter. A lot of anons don't read the announcements or check /meta/, so we're getting the message through to them another way.

A lot of anons come to advice threads for advice and these shitty "jokes" feel like bait / low effort trolling. It's shit posting and more than funny it's annoying as hell. It feels infantile too, to be that defensive or to over react to something like that and I wouldn't be surprised if they just do it for attention. Honestly whenever I see some anon posting that type of retarded reply over a pretty innocent post I assume they're not well integrated and come from other places or just edgy bastards for "fun" even if only they find their unhelpful reply funny. I can think of more recent examples of defensive anons replying to someone's whatever post with this kind of shit and being like "well this is a gossip website lol why are you so sensitive lol" when they seem like bad trolls with rage issues and sour the entire experience for other users.

Wish more people would just ignore and not give the offender any attention (or report if it's dubious) rather than dropping an essay about how so and so is ruining things. Sometimes there isn't even an offender and it's just some anon randomly dropping to the floor and losing it over the mere possibility that there could be [insert label]s around.

tbh I kind of agree with this but only because the board splits make so many threads slower and multiple anons have admitted that they purposely don't use the correct threads for certain topics in /m/ because of how dead some threads are, so they put it in /ot/ instead since they're more likely to get a reply there.
nta but on /ot/ (mostly around last week, i think it's cleaned up by now?) there were many posters blatantly bragging about being racist, like identifying as such, and how much they hate black people. there were also other types of baiters going "black women all do [whatever stereotype]". currently the most recent racebaiting is in the tradthots thread about brown women.

I agree but what I'm afraid of is that the image dump board would be even slower than /m/. I still think there needs to be a reform though, and take some of the current threads in /ot/ and /g/ over there
Tbh this is just my opinion but when I see those posts with buzzwords in them I simply ignore them because it's useless to argue with them about it. Someone calling someone else a pickme or handmaiden isn't as bad as the stupid twitterspeak or the constant shitposting, attention whoring and racebait that we've seen increasing in the past months
I've seen people being openly racist a lot too. I wonder if they're tradthots themselves

No. 68165

I value the input of jewish anons in that thread because it offers a different perspective and it's one that's rarely seen.

and where do you think the newfags baiting there come from???? Everyone wants to talk about newfags but no one wants to discuss from which threads they get brought onto the site. Probably because anons don't want their favorite shitty threads to get locked. It's always 2-3 threads on this site that cause a newfag stampede.
In 2022 I remember it was the russ VS Ukraine threads that lead to a huge number of newfags joining (many of which were male) and the user base changing along with which threads were active in ot.
The tranny threads are also a cancer to this site and there is a reason that the past admin and mod team banned tyranny topics. so something like this wouldn't happen.

Anachan threads are even worse in attracting the tiktok type newfags imo. The tranny threads attract baby radfems from tumblr. Both are fucking annoying don't get me wrong.

Most of the unpopular opinion bait comes from looksperging males/kpopies. I dont understand why terfs who frequent the tranny threads would go to the unpopular opinion threads to post about how cosmetic surgery is good, actually and how x popular celebrity is fat.

The MTF threads on /snow/ were a compromise after a previous admin shutdown the GC threads on /ot/. They've always been out of place on /snow/ as they're not just used for laughing at troons, they also contain political discussion that belongs on /2X/. Several other threads on /snow/ suffer from this issue of becoming political when cow threads are not the place for it.

I directly responded to something that was said >>68227
>just like how y'all was also appropiated by zoomers
This I have to disagree with. Saying "y'all" is zoomerspeak doesn't work when there are regions where people of all ages say y'all and have been doing so for decades. Regions that some of us are actually from.

No. 68256

Some of you are obsessed with zoomers, and the whining is way more annoying than any of the examples posted, and I'm saying this as a millenial who doesn't use social media and grew up on image boards.

Imo policing certain words or phrases seems very difficult and time consuming for the mods. Is there a list of "forbidden" words? Where do you draw the line? What time period of intenet slang is acceptable and what is not? Unless it's very obnoxious and makes the poster identifiable, banning based on a single word or phrase is not a good idea. What is and isn't "zoomerspeak" is very subjective too. Like "y'all" is a good example - some anons say it's zoomerspeak, some don't.

No. 68257

sus is redtexted for a reason, so i dont know why you are fighting so hard over a word that has been recognized by admins themselves as zoomer speak.

They're just moving the goalpost of what the initial argument was even about, like most of the chronic infighters on here do. As much as I hate young zoomers and newfags joining and not bothering to integrate the lack of quality farmers is what really makes this site shit now, and I've seen plenty of other anons say the same thing. Everyday in every thread it's the same shit; someone says something that divides users, arguing ensues, people start adding shit into the argument and accusing others of implying stuff they didn't, cue the "newfag" "samefag" "moid" "zoomer" accusations, the chronically bored infighters keep changing what the argument is about, people get banned, rinse and repeat. It is so boring here now because of it, just constant bickering. I don't know how some of you spend hours upon days doing this it's honestly sad to witness.

I bet in the next years it will be zoomers hating on alpha newfags and platform(s) typically associated with them, and before zoomers it used to be millenials everyone mocked as the "annoying kids". And then the "annoying kids" grow up and overtake the environment and start mocking the next generation of "annoying kids" showing up, time is a flat circle etc etc. It's very stupid and inconsistent how so many anons here fixate on particular currently popular words that they personally dislike rather than the overall quality of posting.

No. 68310

it's because they're annoying and they make every thread revolve around their personal stance on feminism. You can't lol at a cow having manly shoulders without one barging in and being like "akshually she looks like a biological woman with wide shoulders, it is unfair to wide shouldered women to say she does not look her sex!!1!", or on the trad threads where it should be about loling at crazy trads it turns into manifestos about how if you even look at a man your vagina will get 10 miles wide and your husband will fuck other women and laugh at you and your career will disappear. They're annoying and they seem like they're constantly looking for a fight, it's made posting anywhere quite hard because they jump down other user's throats. Nobody should even be aware of a radfem userbase here, because it's a site to lol about cows (loling at trannies included) not to spread your ideology on political and gender issues. The fact people are bothered by the radfem userbase here in itself says that they're a problem on the site.

The tranny threads evolution led to this imo with the explosion of terf users coming here (once again before anyone jumps on me, it's fine to dislike trannies. Most women do) and seeing it as a safe space at a time when there were few safe spaces to shit on trannies when the internet was at peak I LOVE TRANNIES, but they stayed and changed the board culture to a point where most discussion is about men, just how much they dislike them but nevertheless mainly about men.

Attacking someone for living their life in a way that does not align with the radfem ideal of the month does not need to happen on /ot/. I'm not against radfems, I generally enjoy feminist based discussion and post on /2X/, it becomes a problem when it takes over threads on other boards.

>just how much they dislike them but nevertheless mainly about men
>talk about average woman things with other women (what are "average woman things"?)

i think all politics should be banned from /ot/. i mean, you either let all sides post or none.

because said thread is a woman who calls herself a baby and larps as a toddler and she's built like a linebacker and wears illfitting clothes (a behavioural choice) so it's funny to mock her appearance. Talking about someone like pixyteri having manly shoulders I would class as nitpicking, because it's not something that makes her lulzy.

Average women things are things that have multiple threads on here and there always have been - beauty threads, female fitness threads, menstrual talk, fashion threads, dating threads, and ofcourse general threads which can exist without a man talking about what he likes to wank over or joking about things that make his dick hard in the middle of a civilised conversation.

Yes, we should focus on other things, it's boring reading posts by women who have men on the brain. I don't care when it's on reddit hate threads where it has a place, or the man hate thread if that even still exists, but it's annoying when it's barged into things like relationship threads as >>68313 said when it can be talked about without an ideological tinge added.

Definitely agree. I prefer the radfems over tradthots, they're the ones bringing racebait over. I also never cared about radfem manifestos or radfem theory talk in /ot/ and even in cow threads it's so easy to just dismiss, unless they're retarded blackpillers that never shut the fuck up.

This is just my theory but just how in 2016 it was trendy to be a libfem, in 2020 it was trendy to be a radfem, and now women as a whole on the internet are moving into tradwife territory. I guess this is why

This is retarded even for hellweek. It's a women's site. We get censored enough IRL, this is the only place on the web you can tell a scrote to fuck off just for existing or call out the damage troons do to actual women.

I am tired of idiots calling me a "moid" because I dared to post something they can't stand. Those types complain about the bans surrounding false reports with "Reee!! don't censor us!!" then try to censor other farmers when they get ticked off. Hypocrisy.

All I said is that the threads aren’t new, and that criticism of trannies isn’t something that has only come to this site recently and thus likely isn’t the cause or sole cause of the sudden influx of newfags that refuse to integrate. If anything it’s more likely caused by lolcow.farm being mentioned on sites like tiktok and twitter leading to teenagers from there to come here. They mostly seem to congregate in /ot/ threads like Dumbass Shit, Celebricows and Fandom Discourse.

It's not the job of users to speech police other posters. If you think a post breaks the rules then report it. The arbiters of what is and isn't permissible are the admins and farmhands.

This also highlights another problem with the "radfems" on LC. The majority of them aren't actual radfems. They are former SJWs and libfems that changed their minds when troonshit took over and TERF became the new counter culture. They don't read radfem literature, don't want to talk about radfem theory or have any form of discussion about the deeper implications of radical feminism. They only identify as radfems because they couldn't cope with cognative dissonance required to tolerate trannies while still wearing a "leftist" label. Their behaviour is the same as it always was. "Everyone that doesn't agree with me is man" is no different to "anyone that doesn't think a man is a woman is a nazi". The purpose of the accusation is also the same.

This has been happening for years and it's always the same excuse from the posters claiming to radfems. They're not the problem, everyone else is or some imagined group is invading lolcow such as 4chan moids, troons, kiwi scrotes, LSA, Brazilians or tradthots. It's all deflection, so they don't have to address their own obnoxious behaviour.

To really prove the point here's a huge collection of posts from 4-3 years ago that deal with the exact same issue.

The obsessive "radfem" posters have a lot of problems but calling out stupid nitpicking is hardly one of them, obsessively raking through a cow's appearance is low quality posting and not milk.

Males from sites like 4chan and kiwifarms would still come here even if it was just the cow boards though.

I agree that this site is becoming less milk oriented and it shouldn't be that way, but honestly the reason why that's happening is because all the current cows suck ass and even a lot of the /pt/ cows have dried up. That literal who Rita getting a post reveal is proof that cows suck now. It's not anyone's fault though, it's everyone's job to contribute to posting about cows and the staff can't exactly make milky cows appear out of thin air. Another anon mentioned that kf still has a lot of cows, maybe we could steal some of theirs. I don't think the solution is to get rid of the off topic boards though. Then we are just stuck with repetitive convo about boring cows (not to say the other boards can't be repetitive) and we lose a large chunk of the userbase, plus some actually interesting and good threads. At least that's my perspective as someone who used to love the cow boards but now only uses the off topic ones.

Anyway I hate all this off-topic vs. cow boards nonsense anons have been trying to push for a while now. It's all a part of lolcow. We don't need to remove anything, we just need improvements.

Sadly, I agree. It's not only that, but due to the nature of the Internet being so connected nowadays it's much easier for a cow to stumble upon their thread and go into hiding if you even mention them. The Internet feels a lot smaller, and lc gets mentioned everywhere. Finding actually silly and obscure cows is hard and once you post about them they'll get notified by someone soon, especially if they're not boomers that don't know how to google themselves.
The only people that can be cows in this environment are crazy narcs that love being victims and martyrs (like jill, for example) so they thrive off people gossiping about them.

Kf does have a lot of cows but frankly I find a lot of them uninteresting. Most of them seem like crazy podcaster scrotes. It's true that they cultivated a better cow observing environment than we have at the moment, though.

To be fair, most of the people complaining about the site becoming "less milk oriented" seem to be the people who specifically want to nitpick a low quality e-girls vagina for the millionth time and throw a fit when they cop a ban for a-logging and bumping a dead thread in vain hopes of someone being able to spoonfeed more drama about someone they have a vendetta against. As for threads such as the fandom thread, plenty of cows and drama is discussed there but because of the strict no-offtopic rules in cow boards and the discussion also steering towards analyzing and recounting personal stories it's in /ot/. It's the same for many /m/ threads, drama gets dished all the time but it's outside of /snow/ and /pt/.

Kiwifarm's cow threads are extremely uninteresting to read, quantity doesn't mean quality. They're filled with endless blogposting, armchairing, nitpicking and infighting, even the "highlights" function that allows you to supposedly skip through the most relevant posts is useless because it's just le epic funny zingers mods wanted to be pinned. Trying to read a cow thread is like pulling teeth because all the drama gets buried under tens of pages of a-logging and someone bragging about how they're actually diagnosed autists living in their parents' basement themselves while studying the blade but at least THEIR sonic the hedgehog OC wasn't a simple Sonic recolor. And of course the amount of incels and chronically online NLOGs complaining about women and feminism is even worse of a problem than these supposed radfems on lolcow.

They make their presence known all the time in threads by whining out loud about how nobody is interested in spoonfeeding them drama and entertainment but "only want to sperg about feminism that's boring!!!".

Agreed, but I don't get why admins don't just delete the boards if they think they are the problem and I say this as someone who migrated from mainly using snow to using the off topic boards almost exclusively. If they are what is degrading the site culture, just get rid of them, it's one thing when random anons say they shouldn't exist, but admins actually have the power to do it.

It's been only days but I've noticed that /ot/ has gotten better without the dumbass shit and retarded shit thread though.

I'll say this again but I liked the idea of the "stuff only you care about" thread or whatever it was called. It had more interesting discussion and less retarded chat-like posts. I wouldn't mind that thread but only if people don't use it as a gay ass successor to the dumbass one.

Someone needed to stop this thread from repeating the same cycle that's been going for four years. It was 2:30AM and couldn't sleep so I did it.

You neither read my post nor the screen cap. The admin at the time specifically called out posters that were acting like radfems for calling anyone that disagreed with them men and posting racebait. She herself was on the receiving end of it. Do all radfems call other anons men and post racebait? No. It's not the subject matter that's the problem. No shit there's feminist discussion on a women's website. It's the continued obnoxious behaviour, failure to take any accountability and using the radfem label to break the site rules and ignore warnings from admins and farmhands. Men, anachans and kpop were banned from the site for the same reasons.

During the big shitstorm from last September the admin confirmed that it's choachan schizos who were intentionally baiting infight in as many threads as possible and it was obvious to anyone who had ever visited that site. As for the Finnish imageboard, they paywalled like 80% of the content on their site and someone started linking Lolcow there so some of the ESL-esque scrotes definitely come from there. It was a huge site with lots of active users.

I am with stealing kiwi cows. They don’t cover a lot of milk with some of them and just end up on other topics instead until someone brings in milk to get back into the cow. I think there’s a good few candidates for it. There’s been mentions of a husbandofag thread here and there in personal lolcow thread but has never come to fruition. It would also be a horror show so. Prob the best idea
>>68388 you hit the nail on the head tbh. If they aren’t needed just get rid ya know. Make it a hidden board even. Newfags don’t understand the concept anyway. My whole move to /ot/ has been lack of milk from cows. /pt/ cows are basically dry. /w/ only really has two active threads and one is mostly infighting from the Lolita anons. Not sorry about that one. /snow/ is meh now. I think moving around cows should be an idea. I know Shayna in /pt/ has been a push for years but I think may be time. Jill too.

Again you are either not reading my post or are misunderstanding. The problem is not radical feminism or radfems. The problem is posters claiming to be radfems and then using that as an excuse to infight and police other users.

>How are you saying that all these groups are "imaginary" when they've been proven time and time again to raid Lolcow? Do you think it's radfems who spammed child porn and gore in here or something
I'm not denying that the site gets raided by malicious actors such as troons or sharty posters. What I'm suggesting is that it doesn't happen on the scale that is assumed by some posters. Men, troons and whoever else aren't coming here in massive numbers in a targeted effort to subvert LC. If it were happening, the mods would be aware of it and it would be obvious to posters. The paranoia over some imagined out group infiltrating LC does more damage than the raid itself because the result is anons accusing each other of being from said out group for stupid reasons, which then leaves more clean up for the mods. We have competent admins now who are on top of the raid issue, I haven't seen CP for months. The biggest issues on LC right now are internal.

No. 68406

>/pt/ cows are basically dry
I don't think that's an issue and imo it helps to give threads with special interest (important cows) a special place where the thread can be slow and we only bump it with the rare update but it's not gonna fall to page 10 of the catalog. But we could add more legacy cows to /pt/ and re-integrate /w/ into /snow/ because most of the /w/ cows are either milkless or you don't need arcane weeb knowledge to follow their shit. Basically undo all the new boards oldmin added; /m/ and /w/ really disrupted the site by respectively inviting more unironic, unashamed weebs to the site and at the same time segregating weeb drama as 'other' when we come from a fucking weeb drama site.

It's not "infiltration" per se, you're misunderstanding the issue. It's that during these raids we get the residue from the original raid group that sticks around either because they find the site fascinating, enraging or they have no other life than to be chronically online. These are the people who bring in retardation since they have their other leg in a community that's inherently damaging to Lolcow. For example I'm pretty sure we have a lot of male posters who initially came in to troll and gawk at the dumb girlchan but got addicted and stayed because a lot of the cows being discussed are thots that they have a parasocial relationship with and because you can actually have a conversation in various threads without someone sperging about jews and black people in every other post. A lot of male commentary channels brought Lolcow to the mainstream when they made videos about creepshowart and their audience definitely got curious, whether it be men or women who have been accustomed to a moidbrained environment.

I'm not saying that there aren't men or troons posting on lolcow. My point is that the userbase perceives this to be a more widespread problem than it is and the reaction to it makes the situation worse not better. Numerous admins have now said that the majority of reports for moids are false. There is gap in perception of how many men are posting here and how many actually are.

>But they did make announcements about schizos from Choachan
Exactly, the admins are aware of who is and isn't posting on the site. There's no need for the userbase to do anything other than be vigilant and report and ignore suspicious posts. The admins and farmhands are able to see post history and make a judgement on if someone is a genuine farmer or if someone has malicious intent.

This is my point. The farmhands were able to correctly identify someone as being a certain banned poster because it was reported and they are able to look through the poster's history. Replying to bait, making accusations and starting infights does nothing except make the situation worse.

Meh if it were up to me Shayna’s threads would go into /shay/ just to keep the board away from the scum her thread anons can be. I feel like a lot of her anons that are actively on the thread are some of the biggest problem anons. It almost needs its own hell week or years. Also more than one mod actively checking. Not for the same reasons other anons say but because it gets out of hand quickly and badly. I understand it’s hard to keep with Shay’s thread but the sensei Ricky shit got out of hand quick and was ignored. Tho I will give them props for nipping the bud of someone doxxing Shayna’s dad’s cabin at a quick pace. Same for the most part with the random schizo spam posting while she was in Aruba.
You got me there. The /w/ and /snow/ separation was a sketchy play in the first place but it seems that honestly merging them back together is a better idea. The only threads with active updates are the jill thread, the Lolita thread which is mostly infighting and then the mana knight one. The merge of those two again and the axing of /m/ would be a good idea. Even if they hide /m/. There’s a lot of ways they could choose to go about it. I hope whatever they choose actually helps the problem.
What cows would be good to move to /pt/ anyhow?

There is no way for admins or farmhands to actually confirm if the poster is or is not a moid. That’s just the new staffs’ opinion based off of a feeling towards post history. It’s hard to trust the staff that is clamping down on female discussion and labeling it detailing. Posters in the tradthots thread explaining how men use race to pit women against each other isn’t derailing or racebait, it’s women warning each other giving the game away that men don’t want women to know. It’s really hard to trust a staff who reads that thread and doesn’t explicitly understand that the discussion is invaluable to women and is reaching for a rule for it to break to ban it.

I don't think it really matters if someone is a genuine XY male, there are plenty of women who have rotted their brain away in male dominated spaces with minimal contact with normal women so of course their opinions will sound male-like and are equally retarded and destructive to the board culture even if they were born female before they unlearn all the damage done to them.

Even though it's true, it just doesn't have a place in the tradthot thread because it attracts debate and draws the discussion away from the cow. This is why most milk goes into /ot/ and /m/ these days, people do enjoy discussing how they process these issues and talking about related topics but they'll be hit with a ban if they do it in /snow/. Less people are really interested in strictly documenting a cow because being a weirdo on the internet is so normalized these days that laughing at retards like people did during the Encyclopedia Dramatica era just doesn't work anymore.

Honestly, I think anons are being kind of silly if they think removing the retarded shitpost (which, afaik hasn't actually had any issues) and dumbass shit threads will actually get rid of infighting on the site. Truthfully, in /ot/ there's always periods where some threads get more infighting and bait than others. It's just whatever the baiters find easy targets at the time [spoiler]we know it was baiters because of that whole dumbass shit vs. fun posting thread debacle[spoiler]. And even if you get rid of those threads there's still celebricows, general art salt, unpopular opinions, fandom drama, and (arguably) things you hate which all have their own problems. Plus those threads have only been locked for like two days, who's to say the anons shitting up the dumbass shit thread don't eventually migrate to other threads? I think the solution is just tighter moderation and cracking down on newfags. I'm not sure if better moderation is possibly on the current site, but I would hate to see some of the main threads go.

Shayna's threads are wild and that is part of the appeal. However I do agree that it gets out of control and I wouldn't mind if her threads were confined to /shay/.

I'm indifferent to /w/. /m/ is different because it serves a purpose as a dedicated media board. I don't see a purpose merging these topics back into /ot/ where the slower media threads would be buried by the existing popular threads.

>Posters in the tradthots thread explaining how men use race to pit women against each other isn’t derailing or racebait
/snow/ is not for politics, it is for cows. The tradthot thread is for discussing tradthot cows. Any other discussion belongs on /2X/ or /ot/. The tradthot thread is a perfect example of this, the subject matter has the potential to be extremely milky yet there is no milk because the thread is being used for political preaching.

I think you're right about cow documentation not being as interesting anymore because they're a dime a dozen now. Sometimes people here say the userbase is "over" discussing cows, but it seems more like people are bored with just documenting them without being able to discuss their context in more depth. I get why, but it's also the reason that a lot of those active threads on /ot/ devolve into derailing and infighting for days. Social media making it the norm for everyone to have a strong opinion about everything leads to them just wanting to argue for the sake of arguing, which will, and has, turned the culture caustic and rancid. So I don't think it's wrong to have a board where the rules are more rigid to prevent threads from turning into political manifestos and endless blogposting, but it's boring to just watch virtually interchangeable cows be posted without much further input because we can all just go to Twitter for that. I don't know what the solution is though because if you stifle casual discussion, people will take their milk to an /ot/ thread, but if you don't, people will somehow end up arguing about random shit until the thread gets locked.

First of all that's wrong, many other cows are active. Besides that, people on here have just gotten used to some threads being really fast-paced and think slow = irrelevant when many cows aren't heard from for months or years and are still /pt/ material. Some of our best threads have been slow as hell or only had a few spurts of good drama and we managed to not nitpick it all to death. Shayna being extremely active isn't really even milky because it's always the same shit and anons comment on it the same way over and over. We should promote obscure cows instead of catering even more to some of the most out-of-control demographic.

agreed. i think the new op rules in the ftm thread are wayy to restrictive, it's going to kill discussion entirely if all we can post is "look at this ugly tif" over and over with nothing beyond thay. thread quality is going to devolve. unless the goal is to kill off troon threads

No. 68453

I've seen vocaroos being posted multiple times because braindead 4chan migrants start coming here repeating moid rhetoric and when people call them out for it they immediately drop a vocaroo link to prove that they're not a scrote but a woman with a scrote's mindset.

I'm curious what is an acceptable thread to complain about troons? I've seen anons complain in the vent thread and basically be told to keep it to the mtf/ftm threads but now it can't be talked about there either? Also is there any point in both the dumbass shit thread and the retarded shit thread, they're basically the same thing now were as the dumbass shit thread didn't use to be so unbearable.

I agree the industry cow thread is infested by vivzietards, mostly a small subsection that hate her for being a fujo. The most recent OP of the industry cow threads was a vivzietard that didnt bother to integrate and didnt add a re-cap to the OP because she was a selfcentered bitch who only cared about shitting on vivzie's sparkle dog yaoi cartoon. There is tons of milk not related to vivzie on the thread, it's actually very milky, but vivzie spergs ruin it for everyone else.

No. 68466

No. 68467

I'm hard pressed to figure out exactly whats wrong with unpopular opinions and dumbass shit. Some of you feel as though it should be removed because an opinion you disagree with is posted there? Or because something a little bit too retarded for you to think is funny was posted in dumbass shit? I think its okay for us to disagree and have differing senses of humor, but the website as a whole has been so much slower over the last two days not because of the cooldown time but obviously because a lot of poasters retired for the week after finding out that dumbass shit was going to be suspended. It is the /ot/ thread that receives the most traffic and allows the most freedom of post, it would be pretty retarded for them to lock it permanently.

Also, the "general purpose" threads make the other threads slower because anons dump literally every passing thought into 4-5 fast threads instead of browsing the board to find the on-topic thread. I think negative opinion should be allowed, but having a them all crammed into a single thread called "unpopular opinions" is just a breeding ground for constant inevitable fighting. I think general purpose threads with no actual topic should be done away with completely

Not everyone wants to spend 30 minutes scrolling or refreshing the page multiple times to command + F and try to find a thread, dumbass shit is just a fun communal space and whenever 'infighting' occurs it has never been anything serious or egregiously rude. Also, The whole purpose of unpopular opinions is so you can post an opinion that is unpopular; but that does not inherently make it negative. If some sperg decides to spam opposing opinions in response, I don't think that should be held against the original poster.

No. 68475

Didn't the fandom drama threads start only last year?
Other than what the other posts said, dumbass shit also attracted too many newfags compared to some other threads, and unpopular opinions is the go-to thread for the same regurgitated baits about prostitutes, black people, gay people, groomed teenagers, abused women etc. Idk if it changed recently but one time I checked in there they were arguing about prostitutes for several days in a row even the second a new thread was made, and it kept getting maxed out within hours.

No. 68476

I agree, I think the animation cows thread is actually an interesting idea overall and there is a lot of milky content but most of the Viv stuff feels very… off topic? Like just talking about the show in a boring way that isn’t milky at all, just discussing opinions. It’s alright to bring up Viv when she’s doing something or when she’s relevant to a discussion but nitpicking her show just doesn’t feel like it needs to be on that thread in particular. Some of the complaints even feel like they would’ve fit in better on a thread in /m/.

I think it's okay to close it for hellweek, since the occasional obvious newfag does pop up in the thread. But I agree that the most of the complaints about the thread itself barely make sense and either boil down to "I don't like it so it shouldn't be there" (solution: hide the thread or don't visit the board you dislike, this goes for any other thread too) or "it attracts newfags because I say so"(how? you think newfags one day decide to google 'dumbass shit' and happen to find lolcow on page 20 of google? No, the easiest way to find us is through googling cow usernames or cows themselves mentioning this website). Permanently closing it due to infighting would directly play into what the infighters shitting it up want, which I dare to say is probably also of a certain percentage demanding it here. I would like to remind everyone that the infighting in that specific thread started to spiral after the antifujo day long spergout, where staff decided to ban only one side at first, hence why it went on for days. And that those very same infighters also came here to demand for the thread closures. >>65036

Agreed. This is not a commercial site and it does not make money from the size of it's user base.

I think /m/ is a good board in terms of off-topic boards but the picspam threads destroyed it. The catalog is so flooded with picspam threads any discussion thread is buried and as a result slow as hell, so people wanting to discuss anime or games have to do in /ot/ where it really doesn't belong. Everyone not wanting to discuss cows is flooding /ot/ and making a mess out of every thread. The same happens with /g/ and their endless X I want to fuck threads. Maybe dumbass shit threads wouldn't be needed if people could easily discuss the topics they want to discuss in /m/ and /g/.

Picspam threads need to be banned from /m/ and /g/ or limited to a serious extent.

Cows are much less milky than they were so oldfags are all in /ot/ and /m/ searching for discussion with other nonas. But because they're so mismanaged oldfags are leaving.

Those threads are such a plague tbh, especially the fact that the straights and the lesbians need to be catered to that they have their own goddamn separate threads instead of just one, and lc thread users having to just live with the fact that it's different strokes for different folks, like IRL.
InB4 "Herpderp hide the threads then dumbass", I already do. 'Still buries the other threads that are not hornyposting 4 pages deep.
I realize LC is not structured like a forum, but as an oldfag who grew up on internet forums, I miss the organized structure of em. So many threads could be compartimentalized in whatever main theme they're about (sexuality/intimacy/NSFW, fangirling, casual talk, pic spam, whatever other theme there are). Not just the /g/ ones that I mentioned, same with the picspam on /m/. It might not directly solve the current problems, newfags and other weirdos will still come here to blogpost/not integrate/troll or be agro. But it would make things feel less cluttered with crap, which doesn't make you want to engage in any reading or discussing.

farmhands say to use the “appropriate off-topic boards” and meanwhile they’ve banned all GC discussion outside of one dead and hidden board

rather than bring /2X back, since it’s already dead and rotten, I think there should simply be a GC/terfposting thread allowed on /ot or even /g. one thread is not going to ruin the entire board. why is this kind of speech so censored here? this will help us keep /snow more milk focused. the mtf and ftm are easily some of the most active but also, outside of derailing and newfaggotry, milky threads on /snow

Wow farmhands are literally hitler for asking posters to post a subject on a board dedicated to that subject.

The last time this was allowed, /ot/ became so bad that the admin locked /ot/. GC and pinkpill threads were removed from /ot/ for a reason.

> merging them all together into a mega-thread would make it messier and would centralize this site

So that's what you misunderstood. You probably don't know forum structure but you have a main page with different categories A, B, C however many the forum needs, with thread subcategories under A, B, C, named 1,2 and 3 each for example. And underneath 1, 2 and 3, when someone clicks on one of those, there come all the threads that are relevant in that subcategory.
So for instance if one did like my example "A"/ "NSFW/Sexuality/Intimacy" category, one could still have compartments 1, 2 and 3 under that, 1 named Sexuality (the masturbation thread could be there along with the bisexuality and lesbian one, probably others too like the not my type type), 2 for NSFW (where all the threads for men/women you find attractive, the weird kinks stuff etc.), 3 for Intimacy (the bathroom thread, the breasts, the vagina, the Nigel/GF treads could go there). They wouldn't be merged in one, but put in their compartment where all that stuff belongs and not jumbled together in a general /g/ thing where the horny meets the skin care and crochet threads.
That's not centralized, that's compartmentalized. Hope that's clearer. Not that the suggestion will be taken by the farmhands, but it's an idea for a solution.

i don't have a strong opinion on dumbass shit thread but i hide it often, however i really like the retarded shitposting thread because it genuinely makes me laugh and is slower and feels way more (fun)-unhinged than the dumbass chatroom. i never post in them except for maybe once or twice, but part of me wishes we could have a retarded shitposting thread without everyone from the dumbass shit thread flocking over. i think it would probably be better for /ot/ overall for those threads to be banned, just by what it's been in the past few days, but i was glad to see other nonas noticed a change in /ot/ as well

>merging them all together into a mega-thread

It's called a board. This might seem news but /ot/, /m/ /g/ /snow/ and /w/ didn't always exist on this site. One day admins created them because there was demand or a necessity. Even on 4chan boards are created and retired even to this day. It's what keeps an imageboard fresh and thriving.

The needs of lc users have simply changed. There is no need to keep holding onto legacy boards when creating something like /img/ for picspam threads would revitalize /m/ and /g/ and get some people out of /ot/ and into those boards.

As things stand now they're stagnating rapidly and bringing down the level of discussion across the whole site.

The same can be said for reintegrating /w/ into /snow/ where in my opinion they always belonged. Anime is now mainstream and simply being a weeb or into a weeb subculture like lolita doesn't guarantee fresh cringe milk as it did before.

But this is straight up false. The newest boards on 4chan are the /v/ splinters created in 2020, and before that was /bant/ in 2017. I've never seen a board on 4chan retired, the last time I know that happened (if you can count it as retiring) was the april fool's event where certain boards were merged together, and before that when the /con/ boards were made for those panels in 2009 or whenever that was.

You misunderstand her, she wasn't suggesting merging the threads she was suggesting categorizing them. It probably confused you because you're not familiar with forums (?) but in imageboard terms she was essentially suggesting adding more boards and putting certain threads in separate boards (if I understood kek) which would actually result in you seeing much LESS of what you didn't want to unlike now where you see all that together on /g/.
you shouldn't comment on it if you've never used the 4chan catalog features. picrel, you can "pin" a thread to the top of the catalog. It just saves you from scrolling or having to use ctrl+f, it's kind of useful but not as useful as threadwatch on newer imageboards because it only pins it in catalog view.

there was a suggestion on /ot/ many months ago that i'll repeat here: the husbando threads, x attractions threads/x guys threads, and threads for individual actors from /m/ should all be on it's own board. i too am fine with the threads themselves, just think it will look less cluttered/clogged up plus will probably result in less husbando infights on /ot/ + less complaints whenever threads for a single actor are made on /m/. actually such a board would be perfect for those who have overly specific tastes so that there aren't a dozen of those all over other boards.

No. 68568

agreed. why is the tif thread being targeted when most if the i fighting comes from /ot/ and /w/ is a redtext hell? why is dicussion banned in the trans thread when it's remevant to the topic? it's not the terves creating issues it's the baitposters and newfags.
>in b4 just go to 2X
the board is not a cow board and it's nigh unusable with all the rightoids now. it's no longer much of a gc board.
you again. go stroke your radfem hateboner somewhere else. we have a right to speak up in /meta/ about site changes when the mods specifically single out gc/radfem posters.

seconded, the picspam and horny threads are very active and good for them. but it drowns out discussion in both /g/ and /m/. even hiding the threads isn't enough since the discussion threads quickly end up being buried backs several pages.

No. 68573

honestly i think the best soluion would be to have one img board to get all the picspam/horny threads off /m/ and /g/. that's just one extra
there's also the possibility of getting rid of /w/ since it's low on milk and high on shitty posts. proper weeb cow threads like jill's can jsut be moved back to /snow/

>honestly i think the best soluion would be to have one img board to get all the picspam/horny threads off /m/ and /g/

Horny threads are also mainly picspam threads so having an /img would kill two birds with one stone. It cleans up both /m and /g nicely and immediately.

I don't hate radfems. I volunteer for a woman's group and work with radfems IRL. I also bumped a thread on /2X/ today with fresh content. The point I am making is that in this thread we are repeating the exact same scenario that has been happening for years. Rehashing the discussion without bringing anything new is not going to change the outcome. If you weren't around when it happened the first time, the result was the admin banning feminism and GC discussion from /ot/.

I'm confused, who's singling out gc posters? The rule for not blogposting in /snow/ has always existed, and last hellweek it was heavily enforced as well. You're not meant to sperg about troons and feminism in the tif and tim threads, that decision has been made ages ago. It's stale and doesn't belong in the thread. Not that I personally mind it, I do enjoy those posts but /snow/ rules haven't changed in forever, it's just that mods tolerate the rule breaking in there more than in other threads.

No. 68588

Do any of you mods admins whatever want to explain to us why we can't discuss the movement in the trans threads anymore? That we've been discussing in for years now?
First you cracked down on personal stories, now any meta talking about the societal impact as a whole.

This would also make it easier if the anons that insist on posting actually vile men keep it to one thread and then anons can just hide the thread and be done with it.

It became cursed because the troon is on there 20 hours a day posting that garbage.

read the upthread discussion. the issue is that there are a lot of threads that are very active and get bumped a lot but where little to no discussion takes place.

hence why people are floating the idea of collating these threads into a separate board or two.

Wrong, it was created to get things like anime, video games, books, series and movie discussion threads out of /ot/, which was already very crowded. It was a very comfy and productive discussion board for a few years before nonnies started making picspam threads.

Now they're all back on /ot/ discussing it in the fandom, artist and celebricows thread because /m/ is near unusuable due to the picspam. We need an /img/ yesterday.

No. 68642

Samefag but also, the art salt and celebrities threads wouldn't go on /m/ anyway. Those threads are for milk and snark.

No. 68645

Fair. Yet I argue it has gotten out of hand and the image threads have largely swallowed the media discussion threads. In the current state of the board, of course slower, discussion-oriented threads can't compete with threads purely about picspamming which get bumped 100 times more frequently. Even if you hide all of the picspam threads, sometimes you have to go to page 2 or 3 to find a discussion thread. If both aspects of /m/ can't coexist, something needs to be done about it.

Of course it wouldn't, the problem is that nonnies in those threads discuss media all the time as well as snarking and posting artist milk, the same with celebricows. There's been multiple instances of nonnies discussing Poor Things in the celebricows threads, which is straight-up a movie and not a milk/cow discussion. Artist, fandom and animation threads suffer from the same problem which is why they're constantly catching bans for not posting milk.

No. 68647

This is going to be a super unpopular take so feel free to call me retarded, but what about a post limit per anon even if just temporary. I feel like if there were less posts a person could make it would make them choose what to post more carefully and keep them from spamming a thread or infighting. I’ll sometimes see an anon say that they took up most of the posts in an ot thread and others agree, it would solve the issue of anons camping out in certain threads and responding to everything with pointless comments and trying to stir up an infight

No. 68648

agreed with everything. people discuss films in celebricows and boiks in authorcows because the repective /m/ threads are getting cinstantly buried under active discussion-less threads
i'm not against picspam, i'm posting in these threads too and it originally made sense to have them in /m/. but i support separating them so that actual discussion threads can be used without having to scroll back 3 pahes every time
the issue isn't with ond particular thread imo it's just that the husbando/waifu, "ppl you're attracted" to and actor cintainment zone threadds in both /m/ and /g/ are multiplying. but making two extra boards seems a lot hence the suggestion to just make one all purpose spam/thirst one even of it's not super thematically coherent. having 5 off topic boards would be a lot

No. 68677

I see where you’re coming from nonna but I feel like a lot of media discussion often includes of img spam anyways because this is literally an imageboard. all boards should have some level of img posting. the line between discussion and img spam isn’t always that clear. furthermore, while I’m not of the opinion that OT threads should be nuked like some killjoy nonnies ITT, media discussion is essentially arbitrary on LC so I don’t think it should be prioritized like other boards. I feel like far too many boards overlap with each other here, and having two separate boards for media would just aggravate this issue.

No. 68678

>the line between discussion and img spam isn’t always that clear
Of course it is, nonny. Compare the AI pic thread to the video game thread. Or the gif thread to the anime thread. Or the dress up games thread to the movie thread.

This is what we're talking about. The only type of thread that might blur the line is actor hornyposting threads, but they're clearly annoying to most users and have brought down the quality of posting on /g/ and /m/ significantly.

No. 68680

Sorry nonnie but I just don't believe that there are women managing the boards. Especially when their behavior is glaringly masculine that they then have to fall back upon "W-WOMEN ARE NOT A MONOLITH", but why would a female owner of the board feel the need to tell us not to report male behavior?

No. 68681

I'm pretty sure nonnie was saying that women are well adjusted and don't have any desire to manage or moderate an imageboard, because why the fuck would they want to spend all day hunched over a computer reading comments of painfully retarded infights, child porn, gore, regular porn, the way scrotes love to?

Why is it so hard to say why xyz post is breaking a rule instead of using male and troon as a report reason? It's not like it would change anything, reporting "all women are dick sucking whores" as bait instead of male would still get the poster banned. Maybe I'm misunderstanding things, but it's not like the farmhands don't want these posts gone?

No. 68689

we aren't saying don't report those kind of posts at all, they are clearly bait (regardless if it's coming from a moid or not), and they will be banned. What we are saying is that a LOT of reports are coming from people disagreeing with each other and accusing each other of being moids for innocuous things like 'yeah well, I like x character!'. 99% of the reports are coming from farmers arguing and disagreeing with each other and comments that are clearly NOT bait, NOT moidspeakish, almost a nothing comment, that the reportee farmer just disagrees with. So please continue reporting baiting comments as bait, and if you think its a moid do report it and we will investigate. But please do NOT report someone as a moid just because you disagree with them. Use common sense.

There is also literally a 2X thread to vent about it as it is. >>>/2X/21342

As well, you were always able to make your own thread on an offtopic board instead of whining about it. But we won't ignore you breaking the rules because you're too lazy or retarded to discuss it in the right place.

No. 68701

Does it have to be a tranny online cow thread? Or should we just go ahead and create a totally separate tranny grievance thread when we've already been using the MtF thread with no issue

No. 68702

There's already a thread in /2X/, if you've been paying any amount of attention to the threads venting was never supposed to be encouraged. I'm sick of some anon's over the top reactions to this, the current state of the TiF thread is the near equivalent of if we allowed blogposting and spergy derails in the ED cows thread.

No. 68703

/2x/ is boring as dog shit on the sidewalk. How dare I want to express my feeling in a place where I'm more likely to find other women to commiserate with, right?

Because as long as it is in /ot/ I'm going to post about atrocities troons in general are committing, not just the behavior of 3 or 4 specific guys. Sorry. If the mod wants it to be cow dedicated then he can redirect it to /snow/.

What the fuck is going on with you mod? Why are you deleting every single unpopular opinions thread everyone tries to make? Me and two other anons tried to make threads and they were all deleted, with no ban and no apparent reason or response in the thread from a farmhand. Can you explain what is going on, if you would be so kind to do such? Are you phasing out the unpopular opinions thread?

Are you retarded…when hellweek started he did not lock the thread. He allowed it to be used until it filled up, and then when the new UO threads were made he locked them both but verbatim asked for someone to make a new unpopular opinions thread. Pretty sure he wouldn't have done that if they were supposed to be locked for the duration of hellweek, but nice try. If he has changed his mind and would like to lock unpopular opinions, he can communicate that like a grown up instead of deleting every single new thread and being completely silent.

I mean idk I’m not her so I can’t answer for certain why she wouldn’t do that but it’s easier to contribute to the discussion already in motion (ie replying or refuting tradthot claims) and also I remember her saying she wanted as many people as possible to see her ideas.

The deleted OPs were made by an anon who was ban evading after baiting in multiple cases. I kept the original two up and deleted the others to discourage the ban evasion. As I said, anyone else is more than welcome to make a new unpopular opinions thread, just that anon needs to sit it out for a day or two.

Aside from the fact that the MTF thread is on /snow/, you're not fighting the patriarchy by posting on lolcow.farm. It's a small independent website and you're not engaging in some epic battle against a huge corporation like Facebook or twitter, you're wasting the time of a group of volunteers. You're also preaching to the choir, the site already hates troons and trannies have been considered contemptible lolcows since before LC existed.

If you're aim is to peak more people, you would be better off posting just about anywhere else.

Lolcow is a site centered around discussing lolcows, not a political activism forum for tumblr radfems. Besides, there is a whole board dedicated to talking about female politics, why can you not use that one? The tranny cow threads are annoying to read bc of all the text wall manifestos and blogposting.

No. 68737

Tranny threads will make tranny haters come and post their opinions even if you like it or not. Making fun of trannies sometimes isn't enough, they can be disgusting and infuriating, who cares about politics or radfems, they deserve to be shat on harshly like every other cow in this website. Specially because they're gross degenerates and the biggest cows on the internet. You people are so sensitive, just ignore those posts and don't engage with them instead of perpetually bitching about it. One can only do so much with "haha kek lol" over and over again, discussion is going to spark whenever you like it or not. Maybe /shay/ and /w/ are more your speed

No. 68739

>you're not fighting the patriarchy by posting on lolcow.farm.
Imagine thinking people actually come to this website for this reason kek. I think you might be autistic for thinking the radfems are actually having thoughts like these instead of simply coming here and hating like everyone else does. Just because they post their retarded manifestos doesn't mean they're coming here for the purpose of "fighting the patriarchy" lmao
What's next, unironically calling them feminazis? Kekk

No. 68741

NTA but this is an imageboard. No one can see and laugh at whatever random tranny you interacted with at school or whatever. The thread went to shit a long, long time ago due to the majority of posts in every iteration of the thread being long winded (and extremely repetitive) vents. Personally, I go to /snow/ to laugh at retards on the Internet and not to read the exact same twitter and tumblr “radfem” oh so unique takes over and over again from gals who clearly just peaked and think they are very smart. It used to be a funny thread just like the tranny sideshows thread on KF used to be funny. The very few images actually posted are usually reposts by idiots who don’t realize they got the image they’re about to post from the very thread they’re posting it in. Like, the same things will be posted numerous times and it’s super obvious newfaggotry and lack of integration. Go vent in the vent threads.

I was being hyperbolic when said about fighting against the patriarchy. I just find it frustrating because that exact attitude is why we can't have nice things on this website anymore. We used to be able to have feminism and GC threads on /ot/, then newfag retards couldn't keep it contained so /2X/ was created and the threads were shunted there. Unpopular opinions and dumbass shit have existed as threads on /ot/ for years, yet because the same type of newfag retard can't follow a few basic rules, these threads could also end up being removed.

I was looking through the MtF threads in /snow/ and when I came across some from 6, 7, 8 months ago I noticed that back then there were no specific ‘cows’ that were followed on the board; at least not in the thread descriptions. So I went all the way back to the first one and it seems as thought MtF never followed specific group of male cows, just troons online and irl, in general. This was perfectly acceptable for the last 4 years, including our most recent Hellweek prior to the current one. May I please ask Cerbmin, what exactly changed in the last 6 months that made you decide that this wasn’t acceptable anymore and now we need to pluck out specific troon cows from corners of the internet to follow?

No. 68793

Farmhands we can see that you're active. Are you going to answer?

No. 68796

this is exactly why we need to revive and move the gc thread from /2X/ to /ot/. most nonnas are not going to hunt down a dead thread on a hidden board to continue their meta discussions, so they drown the genuine milk in the mtf and ftm /snow/ threads instead, which is a shame because those threads have so much milk potential. this is simply a waste of a good thread topic. furthermore, like >>68757 said, quarantining this kind of discussion to /2X/ only causes it to spill out everywhere else
>You're also preaching to the choir, the site already hates troons
>If you're aim is to peak more people, you would be better off posting just about anywhere else
unironically though, I do think these kinds of discussions are beneficial to creating “social change.” there are a lot of lurkers on LC who were linked here from somewhere else because they heard this was a gc site in which women can talk freely about TRA retardation honestly. I know because this peaked me. besides, what massively used site lets women do this without censorship and social repercussions?

No. 68797

Obviously not a a farmhand but I’ve been here since like 2016 less and less in recent years due to people acting like this is twitter and while the thread never really followed specific people it did consist of a lot of one off posts (screenshots! imageboard!) about random internet trannies and farmers updating about the cows they personally followed. Obviously people commented or added additional information on what was posted but this isn’t boomerbook and responding with pointless reactions is totally unnecessary and shits up threads. For at least the last year it’s been mostly boring ass text posts and ancient milk that tourists were too dumb to realize they’d sourced it from right here on lolcow. Perhaps you anons who just want to reeee and not laugh at weirdos online can make a general tranny discussion thread, idk.

IMO a good rule of thumb is to only post replies that are worth reading so threads aren’t full of worthless and dull commentary.

NTA but it genuinely seems like most people whining in this thread about muh trannies and muh censorship are newfags and quite young.
I recall anons suspecting tranny farmhands but not a tranny admin. I’ll admit I might be wrong because even though I’ve been around for like 8 years now I leave for months at a time. Seems there’s been a lot of turnover the last few years and it has negatively affected site culture.
NTA but that thread is where I’ve always encountered the most fellow? am I an oldfag now? does anyone else remember the year every other anon was 28? sorry I’ve actually really missed being here more regularly oldfags and it’s usually a great time.
Quit your conspiratorial shit. Vague whining and venting in threads simply isn’t content and global rule 4 says you need to CONTRIBUTE in a CONSTRUCTIVE way. You whiners fucked up the haha funny tranny thread. Go whine elsewhere.
Be bold and bitch IRL or on your twitter or whatever the fuck. If youre too afraid of pushback either get new friends or find a vent thread.

Sorry but I’ve been here infrequently since the shaymin fiasco and the shitty teen admin before that but somehow I wound up back here during hell week with yet ANOTHER new admin and this one actually seems promising. Imo global rule 4 needs to be enforced. Try contributing images to an imageboard sometime!

No. 68855

Your entire post is correct and I have the same posting habits as you, been here on and off for about 8 years. A lot of the meta campers do seems underaged and have for the past couple years, not sure about this crowd because it’s specific to hellweek but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s filled with the usual meta campers. That 28 thing was so funny and such a weird coincidence at the time, I remember being 27 during that and feeling left out kek

No. 68856

Nice try but I'm in my mid 30s and want to vent about the trannies infecting and infesting every part of society with their self centeredness in a place where people feel the same and i wont get banned like reddit. Hating trannies is pretty much integral to the site I'm surprised anyone would think otherwise. I'm suspicious of the new mod. Ive been here for years but go ahead call me newfag. I think the new moderation is going to kill the site entirely and i think that's what they want

No. 68857

>Be bold and bitch IRL or on your twitter or whatever the fuck. If youre too afraid of pushback either get new friends or find a vent thread.

Ayrt, before anything I also agree that I used to see more people being above 25 and now I see a lot of young early 20s or even that one underaged anon in the graduation thread posting their age. I am late 20s too and been here for 9 ish years.
I don't bitch about trannies irl or on social media because for one I don't have a twitter/instagram/etc and I am very private and careful with my general information. Lolcow was the one who made me more wary of what you post online and how it can be traced back to you. This is why image boards have always been appealing to me, I like to freely discuss things like this with others.
However. I also never bitch about trannies in this website, because in reality I don't really care, I simply want to point and laugh at the cows. That has never been an impediment to see and understand that a lot of anons do have legit reasons to vent and want to talk about them with scorn without the risk if being doxxed by those overreacting retards that hunt people like that just for disagreeing. I don't have a problem with the anons who do bitch about them. Like, why would I care if the comment is not directed towards me? I simply ignore it and let anons be. It's not a big deal, just a bunch of words on a screen and policing how others post in a tranny thread feels asinine and too sensitive to me.

No. 68858

being a newfag or oldfag isn't about how old you are if that's what you're implying byt saying you're in your mid 30s…. jfc. you could be 85 and still need to integrate.
you can post your tranny grievances in the vent thread, on 2X in those threads, any other non-cow threads where it's relevant basically… just not shitting up the cow threads with personal anecdotes and no milk. it's always been a rule.

cry more newfag. derailing about non-cow related stuff has ALWAYS been against the rules in /snow/, /w/ and /pt/. the fact you feel like it wasn't enforced until now is irrelevant. nobody is trying to silence you retard, you could have, at any point, made a thread on /ot/ or somewhere that gets more traffic to discuss this. literally nobody is stopping you. farmhand directed you to the existing thread in the hidden board because it already exists, you can literally go make your own thread right now in /ot/ but you won't because you'd rather cry about muh censorship and accuse everyone of being a tranny

You’re talking to more than one person. Integrate better.
also ayrt and I’m also not on any social media because I won’t self-censor and have no use for it but I definitely let my views be known irl. You can’t possibly know who else around you might hold the same views if you don’t speak up. I’m not saying to be aggressive or vitriolic but I’ve found that it doesn’t take much to get real people to start questioning the absurdity trans shit. Just to be clear, I don’t necessarily have a problem with venting about trannies. My issue is with shitting up /snow/ threads with personal anecdotes. Some of these anons might be more at home in various KF tranny threads because they’ll be able to see who they’re responding to and forums are better for long form discussion.

No. 68866

Why am I getting accused of posting child porn? All because I was active, the same way many other people were when it was posted? That’s a real extreme accusation. Does everyone else on this website get the blame for posting child porn?
Oh nonna you are naive. You think the businesses that the conglomerate owners make money off of are going to be shut down by their government buddies? Obviously not, that’s not how the United States works. But a random website frequented by lesbians and tranny men, that they don’t make money off of? I wouldn’t be surprised if here and crystal cafe got shut down due to the excess of child porn posted here.

Admin held a vote about post reveals that had a bunch of bait options that never had their post history revealed. She then used the results to claim that the user base didn’t care about the site and did whatever she wanted to do in the first place.

well yeah obviously im not going to understand how this site is moderated because i’m not a janny, also transvestite troon tranny all the same thing.

admins and farmhands won't even answer basic questions here. Like, "are you a farmhand?" posed to a suspiciously invested anon. That's not even answered. The communication during hellweek has been abysmal. You really think there will be a townhall? If so, can I have a loan of €100k? I'll pay it back next week, promise. After the townhall

No. 68884

No they didn't hold a vote. Newmin said post reveals shouldn't happen and the old ones never should've happened either.

No. 68885

Well, I don't remember cerbmin commenting on Kiki's post reveals or anything (definitely a highlight on this site). But I do remember them saying the cat vent anon never should have been revealed. I have no idea why that TiF was revealed, still barely know who she is or why that was so vital.

No. 68886

Yes they did. This was late in 2019 when 2X was created. My point is nobody asked for it, certainly nobody voted for it.

No. 68887

>Like, "are you a farmhand?" posed to a suspiciously invested anon.
Why do we have so many newfags? Farmhands are not allowed to reveal themselves as farmhands when posting normally, and an anon not answering you doesn't actually reflect on the staff. And they did a hellweek after a bunch of anons asked for it (along with fulfilling other requests in the past), so yeah I don't think it's farfetched to think they may consider it.

But they did. The response when /2X/ was first created was actually positive.

No. 68889

Yeah the behavior in this thread is super strange and neurotic. Seems like many of our awful newfags are incorrectly under the impression that lolcow exists for GC/radfem discussion when that isn’t the case at all. Back when the GC subreddit was still active I regularly saw lolcow recommended so I wouldn’t be surprised if that still happens on ovarit/spinster/“radfem” twitter or whatever. Don't get me wrong, it’s great that so many topics and viewpoints are welcome here but it’s not like this website itself is politically affiliated. Too many newfags are here for reasons other than cows and it seems to me like the new admin is taking steps to correct that.

No. 68890

Finally, thankyou mods for doing something about the constant black pills all over the site. It feels like being on 4chan and scrolling past countless DAILY REMINDER YOUR CRUSH IS RIDING THE COCK CAROUSEL, I don't want to see it just randomly scrolling, it's not good for mental health to have to read this shit all day when you're scrolling to get to your favourite cow. Another reason I'm glad 2x is hidden and I think it should remain hidden. It's written to illicit a response in the reader and it's uncalled for on a site for lulzy cows.

No. 68891

/2X/ is so full of rightwingers now, it's barely feminist anymore let alone gc.
anyway gotta love the people blaming everything on radfems and a couple trans threads while /w/ is a cesspool and autistic zoomers still post like this in cow threads.
i get banning venting in cow threads because it's not any more acceptable in the trans threads than anywhere else. but i don't see why there couldn't be discussion of the trans phenomenon in general. otherwise it's just going to devolve into nitpicking selfies. >>68890

This was the most recent blackpill esque post in the radfem cow thread that made me check /meta/ while scrolling through to get to the Heather Sparkles thread because the catalog is slow and my internet sucks. Just don't really want to see stuff like this while I'm scrolling tbh, I don't come here to have this shit put in my head.

No. 68893

That poster was rebutting someone claiming the opposite though, most of her posts are about male projection. I don’t even see what’s black pilling about this.

No. 68894

If "Cohabitation with a moid will force you to internalise resentment, guilt, regret and disgust" isn't blackpilling to you assuming you're a heterosexual woman, I think you've spent too much time on the internet. The post that poster replied to was fine as they were talking about an author, but there was a definite tone to the post I shared which makes for unpleasant scrolling.

No. 68895

just report if it seems off topic, bu honestly saying shit like
>it's not good for mental health to have to read this shit
>I don't come here to have this shit put in my head.

other posters are entitled to their opinions, you're always gonna see shit you disagree with. if reading takes you don't like is bad for your mental health this probably isn't the best place for you.
yeah blogging and derails in cow threads are annoying but i think it's honestly worrying to me that some people seem to be trying to remove any mention of manhate.

No. 68896

I'm not invested enough to report a post, I shared it because an anon asked for evidence of it being in /snow/, otherwise I wouldn't have even bothered. I can read things I disagree with, I dislike reading things written to provoke extreme reactions. I've been here for 8 years just fine, I'm not going to have a nervous breakdown from reading radfem garbage but it does not make for a pleasant experience to the psyche. If I wanted to read things like that, I would be in 2x.

I personally don't consider it blackpilling because it's just stating true facts. 4chan esque bLaCkPiLL posts are usually exaggerated self pitying blatantly anti-woman stattements such as

Newsflash: moving the threads you want to use to /ot/ will not fix that. You sound like you're afraid to use 2X because the rightwing posters make you feel unwelcome as you do not agree with them or align with them politically. That's your choice if you'd rather not post there but you won't be able to have similar discussions on another board on the same website and NOT have rightwingers comment there too. Think about it for two seconds. Do you think you'll get your hugbox (sorry) on /ot/? That's just not how it would shake out.
It's an anonymous imageboard, you wade around with the rightwing psychos and say your piece, it's always been that way.

The core of this site was everything else EXCEPT /ot/ and /g/
Who gives a fuck about them? They were always like that. The main boards should be the focus. Fucking newfags running the asylum. We didn't even notice hellweek last time and this time it's focussed on autism that should've been managed by the people who are apparently gonna clean shit up in a week. After a year of not being able to.
Most of the board's loss of culture happened because a lot of old fags left and the internet changed. It happens. Then we said hey, why don't we unban the cancer topics and let those posters go wild? And it turned out exactly how it would be expected. Since then it's been constant talk about The Culture and none of it resembles the old board. Not even close.
Maybe if you lot had spent the past fucking year actually communicating and getting the modding consistent, people would listen to your admonishment.

A lot of people do, they have existed for a big while now and they contain cow threads too. I don't want to argue with you but you can't ignore that the user base uses those boards too
Maybe being this passionate about a gossip website and wanting to stick only to ridiculing people isn't that healthy, you know? People want to discuss other things too. And I miss the oldfags too, I can't deal with the TikTok kids at all. I'm just on a more neutral stance when it comes to this website, I understand why people want to use the other boards too. I appreciate the opinions of anons on every board as well, you don't find that stuff just anywhere online.

I’m not understanding why hellweek was extended. I frequent /snow/ and /ot/ the most; I don’t recall seeing any infighting, I don’t recall seeing any bait, I don’t recall any issues other than cp and other porn being posted by raiding troons. I don’t get why they believe hellweek should be extended especially if admin and the moderators weren’t capable of compiling a list of reasons why this hellweek went poorly, what they didn’t like about it, what rule breaking they saw the most, etc. No one bothered to write any kind of statement explaining why they made this decision, which is kind of unprofessional and personally doesn’t make me want to take their words or claims very seriously kek. They could’ve easily typed up a statement and uploaded it when they changed the date. I wonder what’s stopping them.

It’s not a job that they get paid for but it is a job that they signed up to do, knowing full well that responsiveness would be expected from them (especially during hellweek) and that it would go unincentivized. Curiosity about what occurred to result in this decision is not unwarranted at all.

You are bad at looking for infights then. The Amerifag one was just 2 days ago and lasted for hours.
It isn't really rocket science why they're extending Hellweek, and it was already clear from the get-go they were planned to extend Hellweek as long as they felt was necessary, which they announced in the OP and a farmhand confirmed here >>68140. They wanted to curb certain behaviors (infighting, baiting, using /snow/ improperly), and those behaviors have not been sufficiently culled.

They don't even know who the Chris Chan is (and it always makes me feel like a weirdo that I know kek), even on Reddit.

Hmmm I guess when you put it that way…maybe? Like I hadn't intended it to be bait I was just venting about it. It's true though that people are acting rabid and unhinged about the subject which was kinda my complaint. I know it's hellweek and stricter moderation but it just doesn't seem like they're even outlining what is truly not allowed but rather winging it on a case by case. It feels really inconsistent and tbh adding unnecessary dysfunction to the site imo. I never went to /pol/ much on 4chan because it was a cesspool so even being an oldfag I wasn't familiar. Sure ban it I don't care. But yes calling for genocide should probably be banned…

No. 68978

Asking about triple parentheses isn't "not integrating" because it is not a part of lolcow.farm culture, like >>68976 said. And if you want my opinion, anyone who joined LC in 2019 or later is a perpetual newfag.

also i don’t care it’s not ‘spoon feeding’ i asked a simple question because it felt lile the whole ‘parentheses is racism’ thing was some kind of joke because i don’t understand how parentheses relate to race and i’m not gonna do research on it(learn to integrate)

No. 68994

They've contained themselves in an /ot/ thread within these past few days, if anyone is still sperging about Vivzepop there it's dumb newfags who haven't got the memo.
NTA but when I was a newfag I didn't ask about board slang or culture, I just looked it up, have some initiative. Obviously you didn't catch on to it the first time you saw it and that's fine, but why are you still samefagging after anons told you what it meant?

No. 68996

why are you still sperging about this? you asked what it meant and it’s been answered. no1currs

No. 68997

you still don't get it. lurk more can also mean not commenting on things you don't understand. don't post until you can integrate.

No. 68998

im not sperging about anything i was responding to a comment that tagged me? you sound more like the fucking newfag kek
lurking the website would not have informed me on the triple parentheses though. Thats why that response doesnt apply to my original statements. I hope this makes sense for you so that this conversation can be over.

If you can't be bothered to read up on old threads or expand your imageboard-culture knowledge why even bother posting here. There's other sites who will accept you with open arms.

If i’m not getting incentivized to do so, I’m not gonna do research or use google just to make one-off posts. if you’re taking posting online this seriously then maybe you’re autistic? ‘board culture’ and ‘social media culture’ are not real things. it’s just the internet. the only rule is to follow the law and use it wisely.

samefag but even lurking the site if you use the catalog and command + f random 4chan slang terms (like we were talking about yesterday) nothing comes up. Same with the terminology thread. Nothing about the bracket echo on there, either. So you might want to actually include these things on the website if you want to keep shouting LERK MOARR and actually have the user find the content you’re referring to.
Dilate isn’t even listed in the terminology thread though? That is administrations fault, not everyone else’s.

No. 69045

You do realize you can type "lolocow SUBJECT HERE" in to Google and see if threads pop up with answers you are looking for, like in old threads? Newfag, no one cares about your whining. You need to learn2integrate.

Pretty sure these two posts belong to the male /meta/ camper who went from complaints and suggestions to this hellweek thread. Most anons don't ask such dumb questions and I've been here since 2015, about terminology like dialate. Plus the constant quips about the website not being up to snuff.

No. 69046

Everyone dogpiling on each other about how you’re asking to be spoonfed is what is making the site culture worse actually. Why’s it so hard to just be chill and answer the question kek? Why can’t we be a fingernail more friendly to each other? Do you think we’d be in a second week of hellweek if we didn’t infight over dumb shit like spoon feeding (which I actually was convinced only applied to asking questions in the cow threads…I was misinformed)? Is treating each other with decorum that much worse than this?

No. 69047

Lolcow isn't going to change their spoonfeeding policy just because some idiots can't learn how to use a search function or search outside of the site for info. There's plenty of anons who don't bring up spoonfeeding requests because a lot of time it devolves into a thread that already discussed the topic all because one or two anons needed to get reintroduced to what the cow did and what everyone else already discussed.

What spoonfeeding policy? It would be wise for administration to put it in the rules because as of right now it’s not only not in the rules but also not in terminology.

No. 69050

Farmhands don't ban in /meta/ usually and they've stated that as such. If that were the case, the tranny bait all over the multiple threads in /meta/ would be redtexted to high hell. Pointing out that the poster can't integrate and it using the same anti-lolcow rhetoric the resident scrote uses, isn't just some accusation. Newfag or male, doesn't matter. The poster clearly doesn't understand the website and admin and farmhands don't need to make things more clear. This is the same mentality of "Show me where it says you can refuse customer service" from boomers.

No. 69052

just what do you think 'adhere to board culture" means?
you might think board culture is stupid but it's in the site rules; if you don't like it, no one's making you post here.
because newfags posting here without integrating drag the quality down. read the admin posts itt, that's precisely what they're trying to change with hellweek

tl;dr no one's gonna change how this site operates just bc it hurt your feelings

No. 69053

No farmhands do ban in meta they just don’t redtext. Also, interestingly enough; the how to use the website page isn’t even linked onto the website. I’m scrolling up and down to the bottom and top of the page, not seeing the word info anywhere. Like I said, once again, nobody’s fucking going on google to do research on lolcow. If they want us to be able to access your information, they can do their job as administration and make it accessible on the actual website. I’ll say it again, this is a random imageboard not school. I’m not going to study before I post. If it upsets you for some reason or annoys you that sounds like your own gripe, and you might wanna get over it because it isn’t healthy to get angry over shit as small as lolcow.farm.

No. 69054

Board culture isn’t a real thing. It’s just the internet. And as you continue to get new and younger posters on this website, you’re going to understand that nobody gives this much of a shit about any website kek. Sorry. That’s not going to change no matter how long hellweek continues. They can have it go on for the rest of the year if they want, it’s not going to make me want to act like a total ASD sperg everytime someone uses a term wrong or doesn’t know what a term means that also happens to not be available in the terminology thread or the rules.

No. 69058

Is this seriously still being argued about? All this started because someone kept confidently insisting there was no infighting or racebait when in reality, they simply didn't recognize it. There is a consistent issue of newfags being aggressive and hostile when they're completely wrong, and instead of accepting it and moving on, they scream about how it's everyone else's fault. I agree it's not good for site health for people to be perpetually angry about everything, but on a similar note, newfags cannot demand the site bend to their whims because they suck at integrating and then sperg about it for hours.

I am not complaining about the ban at all, it’s already expired, I’m complaining about the reason the farmhand chose.

The problem is that they’re not posted at all in an area where I can access it on the website. the lolcow.farm/info is not linked next to the rules. The rules do not mention spoonfeeding, interestingly enough. And terminology does not include spoonfeeding or dilate. So even when I do the necessary research, how the fuck am I supposed to find shit that’s not even posted in a spot where everyone can find it? >>69064
Board Culture isn’t a real thing though. It’s not about tangibility, it’s about reality.
None of those photos were complaining about being banned? It was showing that the terminology that’s being referred to isn’t easily accessible. And if it’s not easily accessible, people obviously aren’t going to find it.
NTA but I’ve already said that I’m not going to research on google just to use a website, no thanks

No. 69070

Thats posted on the rules, not on the actual website. I’m talking about posting a link to it upfront on the website (preferably next to rules) so that it’s easily accessible and you don’t have to tap multiple links to find what is essentially a hidden link. Why is it hidden in rules? Why would they not want [info] to be a link so that anyone can find it immediately?

I never acted like anyone was withholding anything from me. I’m giving reasons for why my ban was total bullshit. Yes the users here were generous enough to explain it to me right after I asked what it meant, however I was still banned and told lurk moar by the mods; and when I did lurk I found that dilate and spoonfeed aren’t even in the terminology thread, and spoonfeed doesn’t appear in the rules either. And even on the rule guide that spoonfeed does appear on; it still isn’t an effective rule because users ask questions in multiple threads across the website daily. The stupid questions thread would’ve been locked a long time ago if asking questions was considered spoon feeding.

But suddenly it does have to do with general questions when a question that is asked is one that you consider to be a ‘newfag question’, but I’ve been here for years and yeah I’ve seen the word dilate used but I never understood and also never saw it in the terminology thread, so I took the initiative to ask. Are you saying it would have not received a ban if it had been asked in stupid questions, because even though it’s a general question it’s considered ‘too newfag’ for you?

they have their own thread. If you see them venture out, report as necessary. I understand the frustration that they can often take over a topic but they're self contained right now. The only threads they are currently allowed in outside of their own: the husbando thread (so long it doesn't take over) and the animation thread (when relevant to the topic and not just sperging).
this. We've had a very, very large influx of newfags coming from twitter/tiktok and refuse to integrate because people are relenting and responding to their spoonfeeding requests and being baited into responses. Let them sink or swim.
no we do not ban in meta. In the RARE times we do, we always redtext (unless it is a confirmed moid, in which case we also delete their comments.) We usually avoid responding to obvious baseless accusations and tinfoiling but I wanted to let all the farmers know that this is false.
No that's staying locked for the foreseeable future. It brings a lot of non lc regulars constantly racebaiting and infighting. Please just continue to report those posts and we will ban them as soon as we see them.
please just report them as they are unintegrated retards, regardless of it being a racebaiting connotation or not, it breaks our integrate rules.
thinking about this. Stay tuned.
you can change the theme of the site at the very bottom of the page, under the [Style] label input. Such as shown here >>69146

As well to clarify – 'spoonfeeding' is part of the rules. It's not explicitly said, but it is part of learning to integrate/lurk. Do not spoonfeed request, do your own lurking and research. There are a few other instances that are in the catch all of 'learn to integrate' such as correct space formatting when typing, not typing in all caps etc. Don't coddle newfags, report them if you see that behavior.

Don't need to see someone's browser history to know they're coming from tiktok/twitter by saying things like 'unalive' or 'r*pe' or 'delulu' or general newfaggy behavior. Regular farmers see it all the time and are able to report it. It's not rocket science.

I’m not a tradthot, and how is any of this 4chan content? 4chan is the least religious place on the internet.

No. 69183

being religious is a normie thing it’s not some brand new thing that tradthots and housewives came up with online

No. 69184

Guess I have to go tell medieval peasants that they're tradthots, kek

No. 69185

This is larping and bait, as you can see by the immediate response of the baiter in here within minutes.

No. 69187

You must be a burger or something because being religious is culturally weird in my country.

No. 69189

You mean the response from the person who was responding to me?

No. 69190

Yes I am from USA, much like many of the users who frequent this website are.

No. 69191

i didn't say tradthot, and it's honestly not a good precedent to have christfags posting freely about how they're against equality for women on here

No. 69192

I never once said or even alluded to thinking that I'm against equality for women, I am not against equality at all. Why would I be? What I did say is that inventing some brand new female worshipping religion at this point in history would not only be boring (its 2024. What woman are we going to worship? Hilary Swank?) but it would also end up being completely pornified by all of those who refuse Gods love, much like all of the other religions that already exist and are treated with disrespect. Inventing a new religion isn't going to magically make men respect us, in fact I really wouldn't be surprised if the creation of a new religion wasn't taken seriously at all, no matter what deity or being it is worhsipping. All of this inane twisting of what is actually spoken is very easily refutable when you take the time to read the statements in full. You're capable of reading comprehension. You're smart. I believe in you.

nice passive aggression but im not here to continue this infight.
just saying having trads and normie christfags is probably not gonna help board quality

No. 69195

Not a word of what I said is aggressive in a passive manner. Everything is neutral toned and not unreasonable at all. I am right when I say that any new religion would not be taken seriously. If that for you sounds like infight talk instead of a thorough response then I am sorry you feel that way.

Was the post cooldown bumped up to 3 minutes for the rest of hellweek? I tried to post 2 minutes apart and it made me wait an extra minute

No. 69200


Its the meta scrote trying to be inflammatory as usual.

You're at it again for another day, just posting to infight. So clockable.

No. 69202

nonnie youre gonna catch a ban for making scrote accusations during hellweek kek

While I can't fathom how a woman could ever be apart of the self serving moid supremacy that is organized religion, there's nothing particularly bad in this post. Is there a greater context to this?

No. 69207

yeah it was part of a big autistic infight, but in general i don't think this sort of poster belongs here

No. 69214

It’s really not about who you think belongs here.

No. 69222

Still derailing.

No. 69223

it's so funny to me that it's a zoomie Tiktok word now because my spaz fringe-boomer/gen-x New Jersey Italian wine aunt used to say it all the time in the 90s and 00s… now I wonder where she got it kek

No. 69224

It’s not derailing if it was on topic to the conversation at hand

No. 69233

"Delulu" has been a part of my regular vocabulary since the 00's at least and it's been used all the time in various places, I have no idea how it counts as "zoomerspeak". It was a cornerstone phrase in the early 2010's /cgl/.

No. 69234

No it wasn't.

No. 69235

AYRT; regardless of where it was or wasn't used before, sometimes things (phrases, aesthetics, sounds, etc) are adopted by groups or movements and the association becomes too strong and the thing loses its independence and is only suggestive of the adopting entity, either for a time or from then on. as a vocal anti-y'aller in the past here for similar reasons (it became associated with a certain type of annoying Twitter user), I would be hypocritical to not acknowledge that delulu is a Tiktok and Twitter thing now. it's just funny to me that it's caught on so strong recently that this association exists

No. 69237

it doesnt fucking matter how long its been around for its annoying and really ghetto sounding. Talk like a normal person.

No. 69244

Kek, more proof that the autistic and continuous sperging about random phrases and slang words are coming from newfags. No farmer would have a melty over seeing a word they dislike

No. 69247

Talk about newfaggotry.

No. 69248

Anon how do you think red words like problematic poc terf oof etc. came to be?

No. 69250

Honestly if you think zoomer slang is that bad why not go to facebook or somewhere for old people instead of lolcow?

No. 69251

Ah yes the only two categories of people online…teenagers and the elderly.

No. 69257

Lolcow was made by millennials. lmaoo Zoomers are the ones who need to integrate or go.

No. 69259

you're right i worded myself badly.
It's just that that there is undeniably an increasing rate of people posting reactionary shit, especially in /ot/, and it's not helping board quality with all the infights. trad religious shit like what got posted on the infight i quoted isn't exactly what we're used to on this board and it causes frictions. i know women are not a monolith yadda yadda but there is such a thing as board culture.

No. 69261

Read the full conversation retard. Rotten attention span at its finest.

No. 69262

And milennnials are like 40 years old now. If the vocabulary of younger users is upsetting them so bad they can go start a lolcow facebook group.
I read the full conversation I’m not sure what you’re expecting for me to see? Did they say they’re going to start a lolcow facebook group or something?

No. 69264

So does using words you don’t like mean that someone isn’t integrated at all? I’ve been using lolcow for almost 7 years but I’ll start saying delulu just to piss the other oldfags off. Stop acting geriatric

No. 69265

You should learn to read then. Farmhands want you to integrate too and leave the zoomer shit at twitter and tiktok. It's not hard but if you don't you'll catch a ban.
