Please post all general issues and complaints here. If you want mods to do something, or have some issue with or suggestion for site content, you should use this thread.>>>/meta/6821
should only be used for technical issues and suggestions (can't load site, site slow, bugs, site feature requests). This thread is for non-technical issues.
Most threads in /ot/ have issues with derailing brought forth by infighting but you are right in the sense that some threads provoke more infighting than others. The manhate thread and unpopular opinion threads for example. We have autosaged manhate in the past and it only led to anons making new threads or complaining about autosage. We've banned anons responding to incels in the past as well. If we allow "debate" or discussion then the anons cry for moderators to clean up their threads after the fact.
If you have a solution to issues similar to the ones mentioned above, we're all ears. >>6817
We're going to be making minor changes to some rules, that's the reason for the delay.
I kind of was on board at first, since /ot/ has a lot of Korean themed threads but I agree. They immediately started bitching about how dudes view Asian women. That has zero to do with Korean culture or it's issues.
Korea has tons of problems:>racism>extreme body image issues>misogyny>horrible views on mental health>horrible views on homosexuality
But no, the thread is just bitching about how weeb dudes find Asian women pure. Great.
supposed to be hidden? It is being indexed by Google. I found it by searching for "lolcow.farm Kelly Jean".
Neither is the one of pt giving fellatio to a corn dog or making the o-face in the bathtub.
Why are you stanning for Mystery? She's legendary for this site and even has her own post archive a la Kiki style.
>>6855>not wanting to see mystery's bare ass all the damn time>WHY ARE YOU STANNING FOR MYSTERY
pt is way more legendary than mystery despite her not being much of a topic anymore. it's not even comparable. plenty of flakes and cows have their own post history. that's not unique at all and it doesn't make them deserving of a banner. besides, pt's corndog banner is awkward and embarrassing, but not NSFW and nearly as porny.
Yikes, you're passionate about this aren't you?
Okay how about furthermore the banners of>Palermo's tits>Moo's half naked ass>Onision getting shot out of the chair
Don't get mad when I say you're being oddly selective..because this stuff isn't worksafe either.>>6858
Haven't seen that recently, is it finally gone or something?
I assume Admin is aware of the bug that is resulting in double and triple posts. I first noticed it happening during the 50* outages last week.>>6859
Dead-eyed Logan is still in rotation.

I'm not this anon, just concerned, because this isn't cowtipping.
This person is talking about sharing moo videos with a discord. Why is someone with such poor english skills allowed to mod? Please fix this shit.
When was the last time a new banner was added, despite anons taking the time to make so many worthy submissions?
Admin doesn't give a fuck.
I asked the same about the Fahr Sindram thread.
Don't expect an answer. I didn't get one.

fucking this. i can't seem to post a comment in momokun's thread without getting a ban. the most recent said "no contribution. this is not your personal chat room." as if 95% of momokun's thread isn't people making fun of her looks and comparing her to ugly characters. this has happened multiple times and mods need to get their shit together.
File: 1539695349955.jpeg (7.21 KB, 232x218, download (1).jpeg)
Riiiight. So why don't you ban autistic femcels that take obvious bait and derail like how one of the old admins did to trolls? Whenever an incel pops up there's at least a few anons telling everyone not to take the bait and they still do. They're just as responsible for shitting up the thread as the incels are.>>6880>anons being this neurotic about eye colour>mods don't give a shit
This would be hilarious if it weren't so sad. /ot/ is such a dumpster fire.

Shit is broken and spurring infighting all over the site.
If "Hi, cow" is officially against the rules, perhaps add it to the list and enforce it equally. Anons are infighting over being accused and then infighting over whether it is a rule.>>6818
TFW such a glaring error still has not been fixed over a month later: management deserves the ridicule it receives from other sites.
No one is doing that. You know what people are doing though? Getting triggered
and completely derailing the thread when someone says they don't like blonde hair and blue eyes.
The sage rules on this website are fucking absurd. I don't really see the point of sage-ing anything unless it bumps a totally dead thread for no reason or if it's a total blogpost. Because otherwise what happens is every other thread that isn't on /pt/ just fucking stagnates and dies because it never gets bumped even if there's an active discussion going on or new milk to discuss because everyone sages every single post out of fear their some other anon will jump down their throat for not sage-ing.
Also anons trying to shut down discussion of a cow in a relevant thread should be bannable. (Ex: the random spergs that appear out of nowhere in Celebricow threads who throw a hissy fit and scream "no one cares move on!" the second Azealia Banks's name is mentioned even though she's currently involved in active drama and is certifiably one of the milkiest celebrities) I thought this was a discussion board but all these rules do is discourage any any discussion that isn't one specific type of comment deemed "new milk".
Basically on a discussion board, imo the only thing that should be saged should be anything that discourages active or relevant conversation (again, blogposts or bumping dead threads for no reason). Anything else should be fair game. If you only want new milk posted, then this should be a news site, not a discussion site. It's the equivalent of saying "This is a current events forum and if you post a news story from CNN you won't get banned but if you discuss any of the ramifications of anything going on in the world or your opinion or politics on this forum that's not contributing and ur banned!!"
Then what's the fucking point of this website?>>6850
Fucking this. I'm glad I'm not the only person who can't stand that banner.
I feel like half of the banners in rotation now aren't even relevant at all anymore. I get Kiki and PT (especially considering the main board is named after her) but most of the other ones I feel like are 10 pages back at this point with no new milk. We need more current ones like Dasha or Baylee or TND or Jeffree.
Honestly while I'm at it, I don't understand the /pt/ qualifications at all? We're on our 6th Baylee Jae thread, 20th TND thread, 4th Costhot (all in /snow/) and Almost 3rd Celebricows thread in /ot/. None of these are good enough for /pt/ but the Fahr Sindram from 3 years ago with less than 500 comments is allowed on /pt/? What? The standards don't make any sense.
The celebricows thread fits better in /ot/ because the userbase is more chill, but I agree on the others. Shoe belongs in /pt/ too imo. /pt/ is extremely boring right now, it could use some new cows.
As for banners, most of them are irrelevant because no one is submitting new ones. Mods should encourage people to make some for the current cows. We need a town hall so bad.

Did this actually happen? I don't recall new banners being added in May.>>>/meta/962
I know this is old but I can't get over the entitlement of wanting a dedicated mod for possibly the shittiest thread on the site. It's either trolls or seriously damaged individuals in there, everyone else avoids it like the plague. >>6874
Thread moving doesn't seem to be a thing any more? I used to follow her threads, but now I just check in occasionally and then nope the fuck out for the reasons you mentioned. And lol, they made several bingo cards, and still missed half the problems. >>6897
the first two of those you mention only got that far because of an influx of newfags and endless nitpicking bullshit. The Baylee Jae threads were basically pinned to the top for the first 4 because what is sage / oh I forgot to mention she is really shit and I hate her / lol she can't draw xD … Agree that Fahr doesn't need the spot, but neither do those two. (don't follow the other two)
So … any progress on town hall or hellweek or anything like that? (diehard optimist)
What does OT have to do with banners? Think of the lack of banners as broken windows theory.>>6910
I am the anon who pointed out and has been reminding mods of the misnumbering in the rules list, rules that have not been codified, and the recent 50* server errors and duplicate posts. I can be concerned about all of these things.
lmao good call>>6916
It's one thread, in a section that gets less traffic anyway. One thread. Even Moo doesn't get that sort of attention, and that has to be the busiest thread on the board.
The man hate thread gets shitloads of traffic, what are you talking about? /ot/ doesn't have a crazy amount of traffic overall, but there are about 3 threads that generate the vast majority of it and the man hate thread is the biggest one. When robots inevitably come to shit it up, it moves extremely fast and it takes the mods hours to ban the robots and clean. If some anons are volunteering
to do it pronto instead of letting the bots run amok for hours like the mods do, why not let them?
can you not read, she said the thread does get shitloads of attention, but /ot/ is dead usually.
either way, the manhate thread is the worst on the site and i think it's time you fucks moved on anyway.

Thread #2 was put into an unlinked directory which was still indexed by Google. It's now 404.
Why was the conspiracy loon who created the Transinvestigation thread >>>/ot/312161
redirected to Gender Critical? They were banned in an earlier thread >>>/ot/249947
and then redtexted for ban evasion >>>/ot/250146
What? If you don't like the man hate thread, hide it instead of bitching.
And you can't blame me for not understanding that anon's post, the way she worded it made it confusing as fuck. Was her point supposed to be>The thread that gets way more traffic than the any other thread on the site shouldn't have it's own volunteer janitor because I think it's entitled
Because that makes no sense. It would've made more sense to complain about the traffic, so that's what I though she meant to do. Unless she was agreeing with me…? I still can't tell.
Came here to complain about this too. Transvestigation will derail the shit out of GC and plus most of the posters in the Tranvestigation thread were following for lulz only. Why it'd be redirected to GC is absolutely nonsensical.
Also it's been 5 days since a Farmhand even came in here to address any concerns and even then it didn't address anything. Wtf is going on.
I tried reading it a couple of times after hearing people mocking it / talking about how messy it is, and it's just amazing. This one is positively diplomatic and eminently reasonable compared to the rest of them. >>6931>way more traffic
once again, what are you on? Onision, Moo, TND, and so on all get more traffic. And unlike your precious thread, most of said traffic isn't bots, incels, and lunatics. So yes, asking for a dedicated mod for that trashfire is entitled. Especially since - again - they're obviously stretched thin on staff as it is.
The anons claiming they want to "volunteer to mod the thread" clearly don't understand how modding works on chans. They think they could just sit in the thread and delete shit or ban people with ease.
If that thread is so much of a dumpster fire of bait and infighting, get rid of it.
>inb4 hide the thread
I don't use /ot/. I just hate that this one shitty thread seems to be creating such a stink.
>ignores the part about not reading it
lmao, the thread is like 80% bait and fighting, it's not popular. also, how do you know it's popular if you don't go on the thread hmm?
agreed, the thread may
be popular, but it's popular with incels and femcels, so who the fuck wants that?
I would also like to know.
Kelly pulling this shit to get both threads off google proves even more so that she belongs on this website.
To clarify >>6926
, Admin removed the practest page a couple of weeks ago after they found out it was indexed by Google and thus visible. Admin deleted the comment in this thread letting them know.
I was lead to believe that thread #2 was taken down because of her patreon stuff being leaked, she did mention it herself in that thread that she was looking into it.
I believe her 1st thread didn't have patreon stuff? I could be wrong though. If this is the case what's stopping us from making another thread and keeping Patreon content off limits?
I could be wrong but i'm sure discussing public knowledge of her being a lazy homewrecker + her breast augmentation isn't illegal and doesn't warrant a lawsuit.

Can we please get the Jeffree Star goons out of here? Anytime Jeffree starts some shit and we try to talk about it on the Makeup Guru thread they show up and start whining about context or how it's ok to be racist and attacking the people who have proof.
The thread is supposed to be about makeup gurus and the beauty community, not explaining to people why racism is wrong over and over and over again. It's a waste of time and it shouldn't even be a debate at this point and Jeffree is such a cow it'd be great to be able to actually talk about it.
this please. shayna's entire thread is a saged livechat anyhow. anons in the thread act like femcels and it's been out of control for way too long.
can we also ban one sentence replies that end in kek or lmao? it'll never happen but hey, it's a dream.
Are you her fat Tumblr fan or whatever? That threads above board as far as milk and ontopicness goes compared to the rest of snow
I had to actually double check there wasn't somehow two shaygnar threads seeing people complain here… I've not seen any of what's being claimed and I lurk those threads fairly frequently since there's always fresh material
File: 1540617902326.png (26.91 KB, 1357x91, screenshot.png)
This. Mods can you PLEASE do something about this? That thread is a mess. I'm so tired of the Jeffree-apologists making it so we can't discuss anything.
Can there just be consequences for derailing the thread with no basis for accusations? Like people constantly claiming things are fake for no real reason or explanation of why it's "fake"? Or saying shit like this? Since when is a public figure/beauty guru whose fortune is based off of people buying his product/persona being shown to be racist several times not considered milk
in a Beauty Guru
thread? It's not even like it's old milk, accusations are still coming out constantly?
I haven't seen a single poster get redtexted without deserving it.
>Since when is it against the rules to post a link to milk or other relevant cow info?
Where did this happen? Do you mean the anon who linked an image instead of posting a cap of the image (which you are supposed to do)?
>>6974:>report the posts or shut the fuck up already>or shut the fuck up>shut the fuck up
Anon that's what mods are for……….
It's annoying to see all the time and gunks up the threads. Like, if they'd post content
as well as reeeee'ing "sAgE" all the time it wouldn't be an issue and we wouldn't need to beckon the understaffed mods at all.
learn2quote and integrate.
no shit that's what the mods are for, but users are also not barred from reminding people to sage. much of the time people who didn't sage simply forgot, which would waste the mod's time.
you should be saging your posts too btw, since you're arguing rather than making a good complaint.
If you checked the previous thread then you'd see farmhands gave the okay for the move.
I don't read her threads often but she seems milky enough for PT.
I had checked the previous thread but apparently not closely enough because I couldn't find anything about the move.
Maybe mods and the admin could address the fact that there really needs to be an overhaul of thread organization between the two boards. /snow/ is a fast paced cesspool and /pt/ has about three active threads at the moment. I realize it would take way more manpower than the site is capable of but it's still an annoying issue (among many other issues they aren't dealing with.)
Says the anon who came to the thread to bitch to the mods about something that's none of their business.
You think the mods and admin would you know, see the thread and lock it rather than leave it up for 2 day. Pathetic.

I was randomly just given someone else’s ban from March ‘18
Not like I care, just thought I should mention in case it was accidentally happening to other anons.
The farmhand didn't say that, she told people to post the actual milk, and people on both sides
just bitched and whined again. I agree the thread needs to be remade tho.
Is this the right thread to post for a thread deletion?>>>/snow/724405
If not please direct me to the right place
Making fun of her fat bf, her laziness/alcoholism, and those creepy photoshoots and nitpicking isn't milk, and even that hardly makes up the majority of the posts. It's mostly just blogging whores, lame edits, and other shit that doesn't contribute to the discussion as anons have said here over and over again.
This is turning into an anisa 2.0 situation.

Are we getting spammers now?
This sum bullshit. I mean the "no contribution" in /pt/ alone are ridiculous, since no one can sage anything.
Honestly, shouldn't it be the other way around at this point? /pt/ threads are the only ones that don't stagnate because there's constant conversation going on since noone can sage. But threads in /snow/ and other boards die slow deaths because everyone sages every. fucking. post. and then jumps down everyone elses throats for not sage-ing, even if it's perfectly relevant discussion.
I'm so tired of seeing shit like:>person posts perfectly valid analysis or discussion on topic of thread>sum anon: that's just ur opinion sage ur autism!!!!!!
This website is a goddamn mess. Change the fucking sage rules so that we can have actual discussion. It just leaves room for spergs to invalidate every opinion and minimod the fuck outta every thread by jumping down everyone's throats for posting something they disagree with.

Ok but again, what are the fucking parameters for being in /pt/? Honestly it would just be easier to make a separate board for Onion and Moo at this point and move all their archives over since they're the only ones that are ever allowed there anyways, and if you even try to look through the catalogue it's all just their previous boards. (Not everyone is obsessed with them as the mods apparently are, some of us are tired of them and want to talk about other cows.)
TND has had 20 active threads before this one got moved to /pt/, which is more than Vicky or Dasha or basically anyone in /pt/ other than Moo or Onion. How is that not considered milky enough for you, meanwhile you've still got shit like this in /pt/

>>7012>Can you not read?
Where does it say it's locked my dude? It hasn't been deleted and still exists in the catalogue among the other 800 previous Moo and Onion threads, but people get butthurt when a legit cow they don't know about gets moved to /pt/ because they don't feel like catching up on the drama and it gets in the way of their precious Moo obsession
>>7013>Where does it say it's locked my dude?
IDK, maybe the little LOCK icon?
>It hasn't been deleted and still exists in the catalogue
No threads are ever deleted on lolcow unless it's illegal or spam.
Could you be any more of a blatant newfag? Lurk more before you post your next complaint.
nta anon but I also didn't know that, cause I've only ever seen the phrase "locked" when a thread is reaching max capacity, and then I just move on to the next thread. I've literally never noticed the lock icon before on threads. Also>lock symbol next to thread title>LOL WOW CAN U READ??
Doesn't even make sense and seems unnecessary. "Read" implies there a word there to be read, and there's not. Calm down.
>No threads are ever deleted on lolcow unless it's illegal or spam
how is this that thread not considered spam though?(samefagging)
/pt/ contains legendary cows that earned a special status on the site by either abusing it or being consistently milky for many many years. /snow/ is for lesser cows. Not every snowflake needs to be in /pt/, it's not a badge of honor for amazing threads but for terrible people who have had consistent milk for a very long time.
Spammed the site for weeks, tried to sue lolcow but sent her C&D to Kiwifarms instead, has been a cow for 10+ years
Abused the shit out of lolcow for her personal vendetta
Posted frantically and insanely on lolcow for years before clashing with farmers on the discord and revealing herself to be a 4chan camwhore despite her frothing rants about sex work
was actually moved back
to snow for a while due to thread quality sinking, mod obsession where? Some users actually claim that mods hate the Momokun threads because they didn't get moved to /pt/ for so long
Raised one of the most famous weeb cows, insane conspiracy-spewing narcissist turned sex worker on the run
faked her suicide to get lolcow to stop talking about her, married her son's best friend
Owner of "the internet's most hated beauty company", decade-long scammer and skinwalker
Grave-robber junkie who still someohow manages to get away with begging for drug money online
Some of the threads are dated, inactive or could be milkier but why don't you just report them?
>it's all just their previous boards.
"board" refers to /pt/ and /snow/. The word you're looking for is "thread".>>7016
You're just nitpicking now because you didn't know threads could be locked, so instead of realizing you missed a major part of this board you're complaining it wasn't spoonfed well enough to you. I see a lot of Farmhand comments saying something like "I'm locking this thread because of XYZ", so maybe you just don't read this place enough.
>how is this that thread not considered spam though?
Spam as in advertisement, word spam, etc. This is just a shit thread. They're always kept around in case it later turns out it was a vendetta, samefag making several threads, the cow themselves, etc. Again, something you'd be able to differentiate if you just lurked more.
We need a new hellweek to get rid of all the newfags shitting up the place.

holy shit the newfaggotry in this thread
Is there a single thread left anywhere on the site where “hide all unsaged posts” is useful?
Just get rid of sage entirely at this point. It is not serving any purpose other than causing spergouts. It doesn’t stop people from necro-ing and flags a thread as having new real milk about 2% of the time.(samefag)
why'd this anon get banned for samefagging when she clarified she was doing it in her post…?
she was right too, you guys are faggots.
just because you say samefag doesnt give you a pass to fucking do it you mongs. crybabbies get all pissed off mods arent doing anything but shit yourself when they do because its not tailored to you.
hell week is going to be fucking beautiful.
retarded? Why are you this fucking pressed? It doesn't make a difference wether you remake or reply to your post. You don't even have an option to do the former if you wanted to add something 30 minutes after you posted it. Hop off the shitty mods' dicks for a second.

Sure. /manure/ never worked out so that's probably not a good solution in the first place. As of right now I see dishonest ban evading,samefagging and infighting in the thread. All prior complaints have been taken care of for the most part. >>7037
Containment threads don't work, see tempcow and the manhate thread.
And then we have anons mad that they're getting "no contribution" bans for nothing but extremely nitpicky posts.
Racebait has always been against the rules, several threads in /ot/ have been locked for this reason.

I guess that’s a no.
Samefagging is pretending to be different people, I apologized for doubleposting more than once, and one of those posts isn’t even mine. I haven’t been here in a minute since the place has become a trash fire. I’m catching up on meta.
Are you trying to prove the point about farmhands being cunts towards criticism and not even understanding basic Chan terminology, or?????
Inb4 ban evasion, nobody gives a fuck.(ban evasion)
I wasn't agreeing with the farmhand, I was the other anon she replied to. I only said that in hopes she would shut up about it and do something productive instead of attempting to expose some rando for what she deems samefagging.>>7043

File: 1541466167924.png (2.05 MB, 1405x2864, rules.png)
Here's my question: do the mods actually read the rules at all? I'm tired of seeing the same sage-sperging anons throwing a hissy fit over everything and red-text/ban happy mods screaming "read the rules!!" with no elaboration on every other post. So I did, I read the rules, and the usage guide and the "list of common terms for those with uncertainty over what constitutes a ban" on /pt/ and /snow/. I used the Poppy thread for example, since mods are extra ban-happy over there right now, but I've seen variations of this same selective banning/rule-ignoring everywhere.
If you're going to let your users mini-mod all over the place and stomp their feet at LEAST make your rules cohesive. If you are going to ban whoever you feel like that day for not saging relevant discussion or whatever, at least make that an actual rule. Because right now, it's not.
I'm sure I'll get banned for this since mods are just banning whoever they feel like at this point but since they don't actually read their own rules I already did the work for you
>6. Do not try to harass, threaten, or intimidate staff.
This one miiiight work if you really stretch and consider this post "harassment".
I don't even know what thread this is
>Because I don't know how often Farmers ITT have to explain that reading the rules will probably answer your question
Hi, did you read a single part of my post at all? Because please, tell me what rules exactly are being broken in the examples I provided (what number rule would be even more helpful). Obviously I'm very dumb and need a smart anon like you to explain it!
For months mods in this thread have been saying "Hi cow" is against the rules and that it would be added to the rules, but they haven't gotten around to it.
Also, mini-modding is against the rules on /pt/ and /snow/ only. Why are anons being banned for it in /ot/?
The poppy thread is banhappy atm due to apparent Titanic selfposts. You seem to be trying to point out a contradiction in the rules by citing rule 3.6a, but it relates entirely to /pt/.
I personally wish minimodding was allowed back. I see no reason to stop the userbase from helping the site run day to day. Infighting is a separate matter.
On the upside, the Taylor thread has actually improved since it went to /pt/.

Rules:>3.6 If your comment doesn't add anything new to the conversation, sage it.>3.6a Sage has been removed from /pt/ and may be removed from other boards in the future. In /pt/, do not write "sage" in any post fields (including the post body) and do not call out others for not sageing.
Board rules for /pt/ and /snow/:>All global rules will be in effect unless otherwise stated.
Yes, I saw that as well but if that rule ONLY applied to /pt/, why put it in the "General Rules" section, and not the "Rules for only /pt/ and /snow/" section?
It also doesn't make sense for it to be a /pt/ rule at all.>If your comment doesn't add anything new to the conversation, sage it>you cannot sage in /pt/ at all
Basically>if your comment doesn't add anything new to the conversation, don't comment
What they're trying to say is:>in /pt/ where no one can sage, don't yell at people for not sage-ing
But the way the rule is actually applied in /pt/ is:>You will get in trouble for commenting in /pt/ if we, the mods, decide your comment isn't contributing. However, what is considered a worthy "contribution" is totally up to us, and there are no real guidelines.
Guidelines we've been given for when something is a "bad post":>it breaks the rules>it's derailing>it's a blogpost
Since there is no way to self-police (sage) in /pt/ long as it is not these 3 things, there should be no objections.
So then why are posts like pic related
considered "no contribution"? What rule is being broken here?

It's almost just fun to point out how laughably bad Farmhands are at this point.>Yeah, as if you'd know but
Yeah, why would we know? As far as we can see random people are getting randomly banned for reasons that don't follow any logic. This is what I meant in >>7056
when I say you need to give us actual explanation why anons were banned. You wouldn't have to be so shitty and passive aggressive towards your users if literally any of this was explained or labeled correctly.
>Rule 3: Adhere to board culture>Board Culture: You have 30 minutes to delete a comment you've made. If you've made a typo or want to correct any part of your comment, copy the text, delete it, and re-post it. Do not double-post to correct yourself. Do not ask mods to delete your post if you missed the 30 minute window.
Of all the posts you listed as anon "samefagging", one was an acknowledged "double-post" ( >>7025
) as defined by the rules, one was a "samefag" ( >>7026
)as defined by the rules, and the rest were responses to other people. Going just by the wording of the rules alone, there is no rule against responding to multiple people in multiple posts. There is only a rule against double-posting to correct yourself, and there's no way for us to tell if those posts were made within the correctable 30-min timeframe.
So this person got a perma-ban because…they "samefagged" one time, according to you? I guess we just take your word for it.

Hi it's me again! Not a samefag because I'm telling you I'm double-posting, and not breaking any double-posting rules because I'm not making a correction to my previous post, I'm making a separate new contribution
to the thread. (Which also means I don't have to sage, according to the rules). Wheeeee(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
And anon said "one of those posts isn’t even mine" which I can believe since other anons have reported being banned for samefagging and ban evasion for posts that were not theirs.
>there's no way for us to tell if those posts were made within the correctable 30-min timeframe.
You can see the time stamp by clicking the "x minutes/hours/days/months ago" notation.
The rule against double posting is unfair because of a known site bug. In the last thread a few anons on mobile reported that they have been unable to delete their posts within 30 minutes.
the farmhand literally called it "trans hate", For the sperg anon saying they don't find an mtf to be less uggo than a biological female. We get it infighting but they should have both been banned, especially when there clearly still is
an anon in the thread going "STFU THIS ISNT A TRANS HATE THREAD" for anyone saying boy instead of woman/girl.
It was really strange to see a farmhand react like a tumblrite down to cringe ban prompt.

Yes, I am.

I make reports with one word 'family' or else 'unrelated person'. I find those reports get responded to almost 100%. >>7110
Are you actually visiting Shiena's current thread anon? >>>/snow/671659
It was created 2 months ago and has been fine, no-one's trying to contact her mother. Shiena is now back in Canada. It really sounds like you're looking at the previous thread.
Yes definitely and I find that mods do try to ban people for nitpicking but I've reported some reaaaally retarded OT nitpicking before in there and it goes unnoticed.
As we speak they are going on about Dasha's flat ass.
No you retard, adding new terms randomly.
It's obvious what doubleposting is meant to mean, but you can't just decide to add new terms on a whim regardless. Ffs.
Which terms are new?>>7119>>7133
Apparently at least one mod doesn't understand the concept >>7025
I'm sorry, but in like the 10 years I've been using image boards I have never seen it used in a way to say you are posting a second post to fix or add onto your old one. I think I started seeing it used here only about a year or two ago.
Samefagging has always been used to call out someone who is pretending to be multiple different people to bump their threads or agree with themselves.
I can retract the term, but it won't change that people are using samefag incorrectly.>>7136
I'll get on that.
Your fellow mod is using "samefag" incorrectly >>7025
Can you confirm to me whether it's one user who insists doubleposting and samefagging are the same thing? I know it's not allowed but it's something I have to minimod people on all the time. because I feel like that would help me understand whether it's just one retarded stubborn user or whether we're infested with imageboard newfags.
Why can't people get it through their head that no one needs to know whether you posted consecutively! You don't need to announce it at all because that removes your anonymity! Doubleposting is redundant here because as a term it comes from forums, where by default you have a username. As long as you're not arguing with or talking to yourself it doesn't fucking matter whether you post two times in a row. Stop announcing it!
Not sure if these are all the same Farmhand, but just wanted to say thanks for actually addressing our concerns here.>>7102>>7105
This attitude needs to go.
Ding ding ding ding!>>7145
There has been a few farmhands in here. There is a lot happening right now. Change is coming so things are a little hectic, but things will get better.
>>7146>things will get better.
Please don't. I'm sure you mean well, but current admin (and quite a few FH) really fucked things up. A lot of the damage is going to be long-term, and as noted by others, a lot of older posters seem to have given up and left.
I hope our new admin isn't a ghost, and actually understands what the board is and the culture it used to have. I hope the new farmhands aren't such dicks, and are more involved. And I am very wary of these 'thread mods' because that is a giant sign saying Come on down! to all the obsessive posters that act like they own the thread (manhate anon upthread has been trying to get made boss of that thread for what, a year now?), the cancerous anons who just don't get it (JSBS OP for the last few threads) and randoms who want to troll it up.
Also, I'm begging for the mini-modding rule to be relaxed or removed. Users used to do a lot of the work for staff. Now we get staff saying they're overwhelmed and overworked, and of course they are because fucking admin and the clique made it this way.
I love LC but it has been absolute shit this year. So please don't say it will get better unless you have a magic wand or something.
Don't know if you didn't notice anon, but in the application thread admin said we are looking for a new admin. Hence why I said changes were coming.
I personally agree with the mini-modding thing, but honestly making any changes right now isn't a great idea until we get a new admin in and comfortable. A admin who has much more time to put into the website.
We have had issues recently, but we all did/do really care for the site and would like to see it improve, which of course means hard decisions.
I don't think I have much more I can say about this subject due to not having more info to give yet.
If there anything else you want cleared up feel free to ask though.
Mostly agree but there are some things that I think personally snowballed into the problems we see now
Around a year and a half ago, maybe two, everyone became obsessed with sage and for some reason the mods started enforcing this weird shift in thinking. Prior to that there were no saged posts, no one announced sage, no one minimodded for users to sage, it was basically a completely unused function. I have personally always been of the opinion that sage is pointless on an imageboard with such low traffic, and no pruning. The function of sage is to stop shitposts autopruning good but low traffic threads. Every thread stays up here, there is literally no point in it here.
When this happened, people started using >Sage your shit
as a way to police what other users posted about, and to begin with people would say this in response to legitimate topics of discussion, but it just wasn't what they wanted to talk about personally. Then it escalated into being used to start derailments and infighting and the farmhands for the most part backed this shitty behaviour up instead of policing it. The website cannot only consist of content, there has to be discussion as well and the definition of "posts making no contribution" became way, way too wide. None of these decisions made any sense. Instead of banning the users who randomly became obsessed with using sage to police the topic of discussion they appeased them. You should never try and appease that type of poster, it makes the site bad! People who can't understand threads can have more than one topic of conversation simultaneously are retarded and shouldn't be listened to.
Also people who respond to bait are never visibly redtext banned and that's retarded as hell. Posting bait is an honoured imageboard tradition, responding to bait makes you a shitter. Likewise with shitposting.
that dressing up on planes comment gave me cancer>>7157
it would be great to see cowtipping highlighted, as it is our number one issue imo. some anons think selfposting caps of themselves arguing with the cow online is harmless.
I stopped actively following the thread months ago due to the nitpicking, lack of milk and people posting more SSS/YandereJane/other costhots "roasting" Momo than Momo's actual endeavors. Visited it a few days ago, saw the anon spergout about cash/cards in Japan and left.
Also why are people so obsessed with getting her banned from all social media? The milk went dry the instant her Twitter was banned and her instastories are extremely boring and milquetoast.
Yeah, I did notice. Just like I noticed previous admins and their ups and downs. Getting a new admin might mean nothing changes because it's another flake, or it might mean things take a shit because it's another Regina. If this admin hadn't done such a crap job, I'd have more confidence in their pick for who takes over. And since the new admin will be picking staff, same thing applies - bad admin picks bad staff and then where are we.
I know changes are coming, I just take issue with the optimism of things will improve.
I appreciate you answering, and if you are who I think you are, I appreciate your work in these threads thus far. Nice to have at least one responsive team member who does seem to genuinely care about the site. >>7149
Sage is kind of retarded. If it was used as intended, it would be pretty good. As it is, yeah, it went south real quick because of course it did. Fucking fags.
You raise some important points. I didn't mean to put it all on staff, there has been an influx of newfags who just don't fucking care as well as some of the more retarded oldfags getting out of control, and as you say staff have sometimes appeased them rather than cleaning it up.
Sage wouldn't help PT at all. It would make it worse because then people would complain about it not being used right. Tbh, they should auto sage posts when someone replies to a main post. This should be automatic. Usually replies to posts are just replying without new info and if new info is added in, oh well. Its saged. Same with photo dumps. If you reply, when its the rule already to sage between first and last, that would be helpful too. It does it already for you.
On another note, a lot of shit is no contribution. The nitpicks are fine here and there. Don't try to argue your nitpick or dive into a huge amount of detail about it because no one cares, its a nitpick. Same with trying to dispell people's opinions and argue over stupid shit like currency in Japan in the Moo thread. None of that is helpful. From a mod perspective, one or two insights about it should be fine, but when it gets out of ahand and st arts derailing, bans should be given or warnings. It makes sense. I don't know why people keep trying to argue it.
This is disgusting.
Also, a word to the wise for the current Admin; I know he will probably attempt to worm his way in here, but please don't give anything to Joshua Moon. He has no right to expand past his current autistic territory of Kiwi Farms.
Can we get some parity restored between the Isa Sparks thread and the Lola Tyrrell thread please? In other words, I'm asking for the Isa thread to be unlocked.
The Lola Tyrell thread is poor quality; more than half the posts in there seem to be several anons who know her personally and want a space to vent. None of those anons are bothering to integrate, they've barely learned how to post and that was probably via bans and spoonfeeding of rules by staff. None of them know what milk actually is. Case in point, Lola made a post calling a friend 'girlfriend' and this was posted like it was an actual life event. They don't like her eyebrows, another example of "milk" posted there. Nitpicking's okay to an extent once the cow is in motion but it's hardly the foundation for a thread. One of these anons most likely started the thread i.e. it has been and remains a vendetta, with a few of us regulars on the side trying to work out what the fuck the milk actually is - and making tong jokes. It's not that I object to this thread existing, but it certainly needs work. It's interesting to compare to the Isa thread which started at the same time and which was rapidly locked.
The Isa Sparks thread was quickly locked for being a 'vendetta', but I'm the anon who started it and I'm a regular here (since the days of the first admin). I have no connection to her, I follow the Raven threads which is why I and the rest of us wanted the thread. Raven followers already know who all the players are in this situation. I have no vendetta. Not liking a cow isn't a vendetta and many a thread op has been written by such an anon. Yes, some anons fucked up by not capturing material before it was deleted, but I couldn't help that - the altcows thread was being derailed by this topic and we needed a separate thread quickly. We also talked about it in Thread Requests.
Nothing has ever come of that thread locking - say, the exposure of certain posters. The implication by a farmhand statement here in meta was this was being looked into as part of the locking.
Despite some suss posters feeding us information in and around that thread, the Isa thread was better-quality with more potential and more of a pedigree than the Lola Tyrrell one (which seems to enjoy next to zero redtext). And suss users feeding us information has happened in many threads here over the years. Why is that suddenly lock-worthy?
At this point, it's coming across like the thread locking was done for personal reasons by a staff member. If that isn't the case, make it clear to us. It's apparent that two different standards have been applied between two new threads of similar age, at any rate. Can a farmhand comment?
What in the actual fuck. I reported it twice within the first hour it was up.>>7172
I assume staff will be chosen in part based on their comment history. I doubt Null has been playing a long con of participating here. Besides, the only thing he has ever coveted was the domain name when KF went down.
THIS. I'm glad I'm not alone being perplex about these weird decisions .As a long time Hagraven's threads lurker, I was pretty excited about the potential "Isa Saga" and I still don't understand how such a shitty thread like Lola Tyrell's is allowed (reeks of vendetta and full off underaged newfags unable to integrate) but not Isa's.
And the sudain deletion, whitout much explanation besides "reee vendetta!" even seems a bit suspicious in my opinion.
I would like to address it many times but my English isn't very good so, thank you anon.
I bet they haven't seen Dyn's namefagging essays he's posted on here lol.
Anyways, I'm glad the beheading thread is gone. Took too long.
File: 1542256294917.gif (583.74 KB, 391x250, pointsdontmatter.gif)
Well put anon, I 100% agree with you. This is the kind of shit that makes 0 sense, and if you try to question the logic you get banned or called a newfag or "sage ur shit"-ed to death. I've been using image boards for close to 10 years now (including this one for about 3) and it wasn't until the past year or so I ever even saw the phrase "sage".
I also don't get this whole cry of "board culture!! if you question anything ur newfag get out!!" as it's been clearly pointed out several times here that none of the ACTUAL rules in place enforce or clear up any of that. How do you expect people to follow the rules or the "established culture" if there's no definitive guidelines on what any of that is anywhere?
Like this kinda bullshit >>7017>/pt/ contains legendary cows that earned a special status on the site by either abusing it or being consistently milky for many many years.>Not every snowflake needs to be in /pt/, it's not a badge of honor for amazing threads but for terrible people who have had consistent milk for a very long time.
This is laughable. There's literally no guideline for what gets to be in /pt/ vs /snow/. It's just the same 3 or so cows over and over and over again and that's about it. There's cows in /snow/ that are WAY milkier and have much more active discussion than Sheena Duquette or Fahr Sindram or Doe Deere or the million other dying threads on /pt/ under the weight of Moo and Onion.
Honestly at this point it would make more sense to just put Moo and Onion in their board, and then everything else on another. Cause that's basically all /pt/ is anyways. But either way this sage-nazing being touted as "board culture" needs to go.
I was called a man-hater and a femcel simply for pointing out that having 10 kids is excessive no matter what your location is and then was thrown a bunch of other insults. If anything, it's you anti femcels that are an aggressive bunch. I don't even know how you managed to translate, having 10 kids is too much into kill all mothers and people having kids.
Some anons were really vile. I don't even frequent the man-hating thread but whatever. I wish mods did ban you who managed to derail the thread into calling anyone that had a different opinion a femcel.

I haven't posted here in long time. I was around since 2015 iirc, but stopped coming with time. Everything is so different now.
I've lurked a little the last couple weeks and I would like to give some suggestions to the new staff:
- Create more boards where you'd put threads by category.
- Great Nippon related threads such as aidorus, cosplayers, the girls who prostitute themselves in Japan, etc
- A board for anons who pander to the alt right/left, fakebois or troons and the like. Basically the threads whose "cow" relies a lot on political issues
- A board for beauty/lifestyle and aesthetic focused threads, etc. You could add all the makeup gurus, the goth crew, and others.
You don't need to follow these categories. They're just suggestions, and you can find different categories to sort the threads out.
I just mean lolcow would be a lot tidier if you had more boards, and your farmhands would have an easier time.
I don't think /pt/ should be changed though.
- Please consider creating a "cemetery" board (similar to /manure/, but not only for bad threads, but for threads that are locked because they've reached post limit. It would make the catalog a lot better to navigate and more organized).
Basically, as soon as a thread died, it would be moved. No one would be mad people are saging dead threads with "no milk" because all inactive threads would have their own place. If you had "new milk" and wanted to know where to post it/if you should make a new thread, you could use the suggestion thread you guys currently have in /b/. Only active threads would be in the other boards, making it easier to find them/read them.
I believe my suggestion won't be considered because I know you've had /pt/ and /snow/ since the very start, but I do things these changes and more boards would help a lot.
Peace out and good luck!
Not only that thread, that's not really what I meant. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough, but I meant keep people who are tied by a specific trait in a separated board.
I don't really post here anymore so I don't know what these categories could be, but that's the general idea.
No random threads would pop up there because those boards would be used for discussion of people, not random topics. /ot/ and /g/ should stay imo, which is where these threads should go, and I don't really have anything to suggest when it comes to them.>>7213
Yeah I remember but I think doing something similar right now would help a lot.
The anons incessantly bitching about man hate are
a minority, anon. It's very easy to ignore, I do it all the time. Report derailing, hide the man hate thread, and move on.
There are boards for female cows like Dasha and Momo where 80% or more of the posts are making fun of their looks/weight and criticizing their latest photos of themselves, but mods are really uppity about it in the Onision thread lately. I'm just not getting where the line is drawn anymore, and tbh it's coming across a little distasteful.
I feel like the occasional discussion of his new shitty haircuts, fat belly, age spots and whatnot are relevant (and funny) because he's constantly talking about how handsome and young he thinks he looks and how everyone else is ugly. It's probably half of what he talks about.
The constant nitpicking gets old. Onision isn't the only exception to this rule, it applies to moo, luna, and plenty of other threads in /snow/.
Threads in /pt/ are going to be held to a much higher standard, especially with a recent milk drop. >>7221
I always see a mysterious mention of cp or gore without ever seeing it. Rarely, if ever.
>Onision isn't the only exception to this rule
Did you word that as you intended? If his thread is an exception to the rule prohibiting nitpicking, then nitpicking is permissible.
His haircut is
If man hate comments are not redtexted, anons don't know if the man hate anons were warned or banned which results in
- continuation of the man hate by other man hate anons
- minimodding by anons because they don't see mods responding to their reports
- infighting over the presence of man hate and over minimodding
Why are anons being banned for minimodding in /ot/? That rule is only for /pt/ and /snow/.
I reported the beheaded woman twice within the first hour. When it had not been removed a few hours later I considered screencapping it to post in this thread to get the mods' attention, but I decided that would be pushy and surely the mods would take care of it soon enough.
How wrong I was to have faith.
its always been a shitshow, butt after the first admin left it went downhill really fast.
he gave the website to some inexperienced female orbiter of his, and she invited all of her friends to be mods. Basically the only mods we get now are sperglords who are friends of friends with some other sperglords who at one point modded. Your application won’t be taken seriously unless they like you. so uh, GL to anyone who is actively trying.
I completely agree. He made a video of him cutting his hair into a retarded style and we can't talk about his videos now, it seems. There is no way to tell where the line is drawn for what we can and can't talk about, and the staff won't bother trying to talk to us unless it's to defend themselves.>>7223
So all of those reports that you got about the beheaded woman was just our imagination? All of the posts here mentioning it (and we sure as hell weren't the same person), was never really there?
Not sure why it's not okay to apparently nitpick onion but Dasha's thread has only become that.
Also, the cp gore thing does happen.
There was a beheaded woman wearing a blue top on here the other day.
and it was the very first time I've adress my dissatisfaction with manhaters. Actually, I don't have much problem with you having your autistic thread as long as you don't leaking everywhere else and attacking other women for disagreeing with your insane positions.
And please, don't act like Lolcow always was a manhaters haven cause it's wasn't. Your shit is pretty recent (1 year maybe?) so, if you feel like you're so opressed by us, regular farmers/old fags, please consider making you're own female wizard board and take the incels you tend to attract (those who post CP and gore) with you.

Just wanted to show every other anon in this thread where "complaining" in /meta/ gets you.
(I waited until my ban was expired to post this.)
>>7226>the haircut is milky af
Yet screencaps from Lainey’s private Twitter isn’t milky?
The nitpicking in /pt/ over Greg being ugly, moo being fat, and Luna being shit at Makeup is annoying and makes it harder for others who read for the milk to read the thread. Instead of sperging out over a farmhand warning anons to stop derailing over another shitty haircut maybe take a break from posting.
This and that their attitudes are becoming real terrible. I think there was only one or two farmhands here who answered with understanding and patience, the others were pretty snobby.
If the staff would learn to communicate better(or at all )and toned down their attitude a little, a lot of issues with farmers could have been and would be avoided.
You're forgetting we're understaffed quite a bit, if spam or cp is reported then we try to take care of it as fast as possible.
A goal would be to have a staff team with more diverse timezones to help with this sort of thing, sadly the majority of staff are american.>>7237
Another farmhand took care of the gore that day. >>7245
Nitpicks shouldn't have to be addressed since nitpicking has been against the rules. Granted every thread has nitpicking, but some threads have more of an issue with this obviously.
fucking pay attention to complaints and get your head out of your ass. no one is blaming you
, all the mods have collective responsibility. quit if you're gonna put up a front on anon and cop an attitude.
I wonder this too. The post that was warned in the random bullshit thread wasn't even a man-hating post yet it managed to trigger
so many anons apparently.
I find it ridiculous that with so many more important matters to attend to, they choose to focus on man-haters. It's stupid that any criticism of a man or men can be considered as man hate speech.
Can you even vent about a guy at work, or criticize a politician or an author for example, that happens to be a man? Because the site rules are not clear on that and as such it allows for arbitrary warning/banning.

>>7242>I'm totally an old fag you guys!>don't act like Lolcow always was a manhaters haven cause it's wasn't. Your shit is pretty recent (1 year maybe?)
see pic. kek
are you new, a male, or both?
I don't even frequent the man-hating general and I don't have anything against it either, but I would like to know what constitutes man-hate if it can get you banned?
I was about to post something about Houellebecq in the book reading thread and talk about his misogyny as the central topic as well as his overrated style, but now I don't know if it's going to trigger
anons or not.
So, yeah, I think it's important to have a discussion on what constitutes man-hate and tbh I find it ridiculous that we have to do that on an imageboard that is supposedly oriented towards girls.
I don't think any actual woman should have problems with women venting about men as long as it doesn't derail other threads.
And we never had problems or complaints about man-haters until recently.
Also, my suggestion is that femcel belongs to a r9k vocabulary and using a stupid term like that should warrant a ban because there are high chances that the poster belongs to that shitboard.
>>7269>I was about to post something about Houellebecq in the book reading thread and talk about his misogyny as the central topic as well as his overrated style, but now I don't know if it's going to trigger anons or not.
We shouldn't have to worry about triggering
(probably male or troon) anons on a female dominated image board by discussing things like sexism in some writer's work. That's silly.
I think that women on a women only board should be given the free speech to express their feelings about men.
No one on Wizardchan (a men's imageboard that explicitly disallows women) or 4chan (a male-dominated site) ever gets banned for woman hate or misogyny. They have the freedom to speak their minds and express their feelings. Why can't we have that?
Unlike the people on those two sites, we're also not nearly as vile. We don't post photos/videos of dead men and mock them, share creepshots of guys we've seen IRL, post tips on drugging and assaulting men, say underage boys who get raped "deserved it" or are liars, post rape/torture fantasies on pictures of random men and boys en masse, post photos of people's 7-12 year old sons and say shit like ">tfw no little bf" etc etc. "Man hate" in female dominated spaces doesn't result in mass killings, assaults, rapes or any even any real social detriments on men. Many of us have men who we love, respect and appreciate IRL. That doesn't mean many, many grievances about men as a collective aren't valid or worth talking about.
We should be allowed to say what we want about men, they certainly don't pull any (literal or figurative) punches with us, on any site they inhabit in large amounts. The only actual downside is that men who come here and read such posts will feel bad. However, according to the very rules of this site that explicitly disallow male posters, they shouldn't even be here, so it's not our problem.
I think the issue is more that the anons who don't have problems with men are called out in a pretty rude, nasty way by anons who do. I don't spend tons of time in man hate or even gender crit threads, so I certainly don't see why you can't have them, or two or three or even ten threads about it.
Man hate does pop up in almost every thread, which is fine because I can scroll, but sometimes it looks like a lot of baiting going on.
I have a tinfoil that probably half the man hate is posted by trannies, which is ridic but there you go.
Literally what? Acknowledging the fact that rapey autogynephilic translesbians are infested with male entitlement isn't really "misandry" and the thread is actually one of the few in /ot/ that doesn't get constantly derailed. Are you the person who's always whining about how they don't sperg about FTMs there?>>7269>Complaints about m-muh man-hate have skyrocketed after we started getting robot raids
Makes you think! >>7275
All of this tbh
As much as it's just as frustrating to jani hate it's good to see that some people still have faith in the site. Thanks for the kind words anon.>>7275
This is the general consensus with the man-hate thread but seeing anons constantly take bait from robots is the main issue with the topic aside from the occasional derailing in other /ot/ threads. >>7264
We do have an agreed standard with ban lengths and ban offenses. Manhate derailing would be considered derailing a thread to say something that would better be suited for man hate. A good example would be gender crit like another anon said. The topics may be similar but they're not the same. >>7274
>Acknowledging the fact that rapey autogynephilic translesbians are infested with male entitlement isn't really "misandry"
The derail had absolutely nothing to do with trans.>>7284
But mods did not respond to the derailing.
no, just no. only idiots respond to bait. people get banned for responding to bait because it's derailing
it's not some big conspiracy.everyone derailing and infighting deserves their bans.
it's also not just "maleposters" because many times it's other anons baiting you. this is probably my least favorite argument on lolcow.
Will a mod please step in? Anons continue to take the bait.>>7284
You took the time to talk about this issue, but you couldn't actually address it in the Alt Cow thread?
Re your reply to >>7264
, the original question was why the comment was considered man hate >>7254
. Why did that comment, posted in a thread with no defined topic, warrant a ban when the derailing in the GC thread did not?
Responding to bait is exactly what incels and robots want, this issue has been going on for a year now in the man-hate thread. Anons can't willingly take bait and expect mods to moderate their thread 24/7 to clean up their messes. It really just helps everyone to ignore and report. >>7291
Sorry I misread, I didn't realize you were addressing alt-cows and not man hate specifically. Derailing in GC will result in a ban, the ban in the vent thread was red texted as an example of a post that would be better suited for man-hate. The anon was only given a warning as well.
I was addressing the derailing in both Alt Cows and GC.
The derailing in Alt Cows started on the 16th and didn't get red texted until today.
The man hate derailing in GC was never red texted, if it was addressed at all. A couple of anons called out the derailing comments, so they probably reported them too.
We're frustrated because, if mods are around and able to respond here, why are reports being ignored?
>the ban in the vent thread was red texted
The comment wasn't in the Vent thread, but it would be a better fit there than in Man Hate.
Moo isn't a pedophile. It is extremely derailing and literally has no need to even be said. Its a waste of time and caused the rest of the thread to fill up with a discussion that was pointless since it started.
And yes. Several anons think its funny to take instagram posts out of context and derail with tinfoils about it until another anon comes in with actual context.
Since I've forgotten what I actually came here for, did some catching up and I really want to bump>>7176
because it would be great if we could actually get an answer. That locking of the thread was extremely unusual, and staff seem to be refusing to discuss it. What the fuck? (thank you to the anon I am pointing to for raising it again)
This. I’m cool with the man-hate threads. It’s something that a lot of anons on an all female board are interested in and I have nothing against its exsistance, but….
Myself and several other anons were once discussing (iirc unpopular opinions or vent thread) how we’ve had horrible life experiences with other females (personal life experiences) and one anon mentioned that maybe a thread could be created in /g/ or /ot/ to discuss issues with female friends, female bullies, female abusers, mom problems (since we have one for relationships with dad’s, but not moms) etc. Not in a “woman-hate thread” type of way but a venting, advice, and discussion thread type of way.
Immediately a couple of farmers tried to shut it down, spam that the anons who wanted to discuss it must
be secret male posters/incels and that all convo regarding females bad experiences with other females should be shut down. They were being overly hostile over it just being mentioned.
It’s when it leaks into other threads and when anons who frequent man-hate feel they need to aggressively rip apart their fellow farmers just for having a different opinion or having the same experiences they discuss constantly, but with the opposite gender, that there seems to be a problem.
One farmer in the thread just agreed that it was good idea and that they wanted to discuss/vent about being bullied by other girls in high school. Quickly, they got a bunch of responses telling them to “gtfo incel”/“male confirmed”/“you cant post here!!1” when they were clearly a female. I later saw that same anon posting a screencap of it on c.c., saying that it really upset them and had offput them from posting in /g/ anymore, when they’d been a longtime farmer.
>inb4 “that anon can go b’aww on c.c. hugbox more”
It’s not cool to do that to other female farmers in a thread that has nothing to do with man hate. You can have polite discussions about one, without it negating the other. That’s why most farmers see that thread as a containment thread. It’s not the topic; it’s the pushy, rude, mini modding, harassing other users, running farmers off in other threads that’s annoying, js.
I would have to agree the infighting on /ot/ and /g/ is a bit out of hand. From the dog hate/love rivalry to anons calling each other handmaidens over disagreements. Thanks for the feedback on this because I was unsure if some anons felt the same way about those boards. >>7311
We got backtracked on that, sorry. Answers should be posted by admin by the end of the week.
Thanks for talking with us.
Are ban notices supposed to say what the ban was for?
