Honest question: Why do farmhands give a fuck about "derailing" in /ot/ on threads that obviously bait major arguing and infighting?

What's there to "derail" when every post is literally someone else, or a ban evader, trying to provoke the next reaction?
It's like either delete the thread or allow the argument. It's fucking retarded to try to moderate a shitshow like those types of threads are even work saving. At least autosage them or something.

No. 6823

i've been wondering this myself honestly. maybe it's cause /ot/ doesn't really matter at all?

No. 6824

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.
We're going to be making minor changes to some rules, that's the reason for the delay.

No. 6825

I honestly wish /manure/ came back so trash threads could be moved to it.

No. 6826

even if the anons bitch about their shitty threads being autosaged, it makes sense to me to do it if they're causing issues.

No. 6829

"someone bitched about it" is the reasoning for not doing anything logical around here, don't you know?

No. 6830

All these "I hate x/anti-x" threads on /ot/ are getting out of hand. All of them feel like thinly veiled bait, especially the new one about Koreans, people are just using it to shit on Asians and Asian cultural differences.

No. 6831

Seriously how is that thread any different than those race threads that were banned a while ago?

No. 6832

this! i just reported it and was going to complain here. anons are getting accused of gatekeeping for trying to stick to korea and not just Asians in general. how tf is that not racist?

No. 6833

The idea in general is just stupid wether it’s one group of people or not. Its a huge circle jerk at this point and it’s obvious a lot of anons are just jaded weebs

No. 6834

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:
>extreme body image issues
>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.

No. 6835

i wasn't with it at first, but fuck, anons on /ot/ are so fucking vapid. you'd think they'd have something useful to say with all the alleged radfems there, but it's just bitching about stacks of cups.

No. 6836

Same. You’d think somebody would mention the fact that abortion is illegal and how absurdly high their suicide rate is, but its all just “waaaah koreans double dip!! Fucking savages, koreans are all dogs!!”

No. 6837

They did, you didn't read the thread

No. 6838

No. 6847

The man-hating thread is a disaster. I know it's a dump fire anyway, but the amount of men and incels that post continuously and blatantly aren't banned quick enough. Is it not feasible to get someone dedicated to that thread?

No. 6848

We have 2 farmhands who regularly check the thread everyday.

No. 6849

Thanks for the information, I guess they are in the same time zone though as there are periods of 6-7 hours men post freely. I appreciate the work you all do, I'd just love to see more control in that thread.

No. 6854

agreed. it's really not even that relevant anymore. there's no milk on her anymore and she's not legendary like pt or even kiki or anything. it's just an annoying one that's 4chan tier tbh

No. 6855

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.

No. 6856

>not wanting to see mystery's bare ass all the damn time

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.

No. 6857

There was an anon appealing some auto bans, please let me know if you're still experiencing issues with posting via email or by posting in this thread (if possible).

After Raven and Logan split up anons asked for his banner to be removed and Admin refused.

Okay how about furthermore the banners of

Don't get mad when I say you're being oddly selective..because this stuff isn't worksafe either.

Haven't seen that recently, is it finally gone or something?

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.

>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.

No. 6882

I feel like the lack of sage on /pt/ has caused more bans there, which is stupid. Sage or not, we're still allowed to post shit like this. If you're going to ban everyone who isn't dumping milk, you might as well put sage back on. It's been ruining the threads.

No. 6885


Do you have the "hide saged posts" option turned on?

No. 6886

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.


TFW such a glaring error still has not been fixed over a month later: management deserves the ridicule it receives from other sites.

No. 6887

Yeah swallowing all the bait is encouraged, pointing out bait is a bannable offence. Maybe a mod is one of the racebair spergs?

No. 6888

Please do something about the unpopular opinion thread in /ot/. I'm so sick of all the caucasian insecurity. That borderline cp needs to be spoilered too, it's fucking gross.

No. 6889

Caucasian insecurity makes it sound like you’re the one sperging our about Asian women superiority.

No. 6890

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.

No. 6891

Point is the Caucasian bit comes off as trying to be inflammatory. The eye colour posting is sheer autism and demands a hellweek. It’s the third time it’s cropped up in some form. Mods don’t care, probably are the ones screaming about poop eyes.

No. 6892

That's why it was spoilered. You can call it "inflammatory" all you want, but it's true.

No. 6893

If there’s no race sperging why does Caucasian factor in then? Pick one anon.

No. 6894

There is race sperging, but it's not about how ~superior~ asian women are. It's coming from insecure white women who chimp the fuck out when someone says they aren't attracted to features some white people have, especially at non-whites. They equate not liking these features to jealousy, self-hatred, and/or racism.

No. 6895

Imo there’s too many chimps to blame anyone in particular.its just as likely a man larping as a blue eyed woman with a hang up. Plus there’s frequent dae hate white women lol garbage floating around from low effort trolls.

No. 6896

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?

Fucking this. I'm glad I'm not the only person who can't stand that banner.

No. 6897

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.

No. 6899

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.

No. 6905

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.

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.

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)

No. 6913


What does OT have to do with banners? Think of the lack of banners as broken windows theory.

Noticing a weird trend of people trying to shoehorn other cows (with or without threads) in random threads. It's happened in 3 or 4 in the past 24 hours. I reported it but just weird.

Also, people who complain about us complaining about mods can suck on a railroad spike. I know mods don't get paid, but that's even more of a reason to not be shit, they're not getting anything out of it, so either git gud or let someone else do it.

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.

so its been awhile, whats the deal with kelly jean? is she still offlimits or what?

No. 6922

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?

No. 6923

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.

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.

No. 6932

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.

No. 6933

That was probably me, it popped up again recently and I reported it, so I'm guessing it was then and you posted here after actioning it. If so, thank you! (I have no idea if it is still in effect, IP switches regularly, and I haven't hit a 'bad' one to check)

No. 6934

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.

>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.

No. 6935

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.

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.

Or saying shit like this?

Eh disagree. I was actually coming here to complain about the new ban happy mod because all I see tonight is red text everywhere over difficult to discern offenses. Since when is it against the rules to post a link to milk or other relevant cow info? I just read through the rules again and couldn't find anything except that we can't link directly to onion vids.

No. 6969

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?

can we lock or autosage the costhot thread on /snow/? or something? a very lovely farmhand decided to post in the thread and lay down some truth to those idiots and so far the only posts have been them squawking and not posting milk. still. the thread OP is abysmal and the thread is all salt and no substance.

No. 6974

Holy fuck can everyone stop bitching in every single thread on lolcow about saging??? God damn, the space it takes to make these mini-mod posts all the fucking time is 1,000,000,000x more annoying than someone possibly bumping a thread with no milk. Jesus, just report the posts or shut the fuck up already.

No. 6975

Are you new to image boards? So called "mini-modding" has always happened because it helps to keep the culture organic. Admin even said they're short staffed FFS, why would you get mad and tell people to yell into the void by reporting shit to our already over-worked farmhands when they can simply remind people in the thread.

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.

No. 6981

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.

That's my point and my complaint.

Why was the Taylor Nicole Dean + Jonny Craig thread moved to /pt/? Are anons just deciding which board to put their threads in now?

No. 6984

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.

No. 6985

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.)

The Costhot thread needs to be deleted at this point because all it is is infighting about Belle Delphine. Ask for milk, we don’t get milk. Ask for milk again after she’s been posted like 5 times and a farmhand says “stop bitching, she’s bound to have milk”. Who is picking these farmhands?

No. 6992

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.

No. 6996

No. 6997

Actually, an anon just posted a good summarization of her milk which is what we were asking for in the first place. Don’t assume it’s whiteknighting just because we weren’t eating up baseless accusations. Now that someone posted milk, we can let this fucking rest.

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/

Doesn't even make sense and seems unnecessary. "Read" implies there a word there to be read, and there's not. Calm down.

No. 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. /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

>Raven Sparks

faked her suicide to get lolcow to stop talking about her, married her son's best friend

>Doe Deere

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

>Kiki Kannibal

Legendary, period

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".

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.

Could the infighting rules be more specific? I feel like some anons report anyone that doesn't agree with them or challenge their opinion as infighting because the rule is so vague. I don't think it's okay for people to present an aggressive opening post and when people take part in debating them, the original butthurt anon can just report it as infighting and get everyone banned.

Derailing with racebaiting for 150 replies is an obvious case but someone being a retard and 7 people responding to the anon to explain why they're retarded isn't really infighting in my opinion, but you can still get banned for it. Especially if it's still within the original subject matter or the thread is sort of free-for-all.

How about addressing the basic concerns that have been repeated over and over in this thread first, regarding the culture of the site and user feedback and general interaction from staff as opposed to this weird “we’ll speak to you when we deign” shit that’s been going on since the most recent admin took over.

Hellweek when? Townhall when? This was all proposed MONTHS ago, most of your decent posters have left the site in exasperation at this point. What now, more shitty mods chosen from the pool of absolute faggots left on the site?

Admin, hand over the keys. It’s long past time.

Sorry to double post but like - we’ve literally seen permabans and long bans for people just being cunty about staff and modding. It’s pure faggotry on staff’s part and admin clearly doesn’t have a background in any of this. See also - nuking threads over absolutely worthless legal threats, choosing the site provider we have, assembling a tiny team of mods and paying server fees themselves to these retards. Enough is enough.(samefag)

Petition to have a Fight Club thread in /ot or something? It would be served as an empty basement for otherwise infighting to take place. Some wasteland you can redirect people who wanna reeee to.

Containment threads don't work, see tempcow and the manhate thread.

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

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/.

>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
>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?

Why the fuck would I be here complaining about them if I was? Anons got banned for calling Gregory Gorgeous a man after an anon jumped in to WK him (who didn't get banned).

>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.

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.

>making a post to only complain about derailment constitutes as derailment
Okay, so why didn't the other anons doing that get banned? The only anons who did get banned were the ones who rustled the farmhand's jimmies. Not the libtards crying about transphobia, not the other anons bitching about derailing, none of the kink spergs, none of the regular camgirls who shit up that thread, none of the a-logs, nitpickers, or blogposters, just the anons who rustled farmhand's jimmies

No. 7079

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.

Agreed. The site has been hurt because it's been run poorly by people with no experience and no investment in maintaining the culture that made lolcow unique. Sorry if that hurts people's feelings, but admin and staff have alienated a segment of the core user base and invited a horrible breed of newfags to infest the boards. A lot of advice and support was offered and ignored or dismissed. And that dismissiveness came from a place on undeserved arrogance. I don't care about the reasons why admin couldn't do the job well. If you are not up to the responsibility, don't do it. If you don't want to do the job, then don't do it. There are dozens of users who want to help and actually care about the site who are more than capable of doing the job.

No. 7119

Different farmhand here to make some people aware, we have not made any big changes to staff in the past while. Finding new mods in general is a very hard task, we can not just add any person. So this will take a while.

There has been serious issues with samefags lately, so yes, it can be slightly frustrating. We are a very small team with busy schedules, getting through reports can take hours and mistakes happen. Like I said we are trying our best to find mods that won't abuse all the information a site like this has.

To also clear something else up, I am the mod who wrote out the terminology post. I noticed a lot of anons jumping on 'doubleposting' being not a image board term, they are correct. I added it hoping it would help newfags understand easier to not post multiple times in a row. This shouldn't be a bannable offense and if that has happened I am sorry and I will clear it up. Though it is still encouraged to delete your original post if it is to fix typos and small things.

No one of the mod team is new to image boards.
I can try to answer some questions, but since change is coming soon it may not matter anyways.

Also kek at the anon who thinks we are possible handmaidens/trannies. We still have to ban people even if they align with our own views and not ban others who have ones we don't agree with. Stick to /ot/ threads with those subjects, they do not belong in /pt/ or /snow/ and only cause infighting.

If I'm going to be honest, I stopped posting recently because it seems a cluster of newfags want to nitpick everything and not talk about Momokun.

No. 7137

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.

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!

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.

No. 7148

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.

No. 7149

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.

Hi mods and farmers, has anyone else noticed that a lot of 1 - 3 year old threads in snow are getting necro’d recently with irrelevant comments? Normally I wouldn’t notice, but it seems to be happening much more often.

Thanks for everything you do!

Can we start outright banning the nitpicks in the Moo thread? It feels like its the same person over and over again too from the way they type and how farfetched their tinfoils and nitpicks are every time. It just clutters up the place and starts arguments. At least can we get another warning about it? Saying how people should dress up to go on planes or how they should wear makeup for other people's sakes because of how bad her bare face looks is not milk. Observations I get, but they keep going into a lot of detail about WHY this nitpick is important and its stupid.

No. 7163

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.

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.

getting rid of sage in /pt/ was a huge mistake because now people get bans for "no contribution". how the fuck are we supposed to discuss stuff and have conversations if the threads are so horribly modded?

No. 7168

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.

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?

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.

Same with /snow/. I personally think people like Natchan or Jilly what’s her face should be on /ot/ or have a more general thread. I’m tired of threads about people who were notable like 5-6 years ago have threads filled with a-logging or excessive nitpicking. I think the threads should be limited to people with recent drama rather than the rotation of threads being necro’d

No. 7200

do you guys know what a-logging is?

No. 7201

Why was an anon warned or banned for man-hate derailing? It wasn't specifically a man-hating post and it was in a thread titled dumbass shit. It was in no way more derailing than other posts in that thread.

It takes you like ages to ban incels and CP/gore threads posted by raiders, but you ban an anon for an innocuous remark?

No. 7202

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.

No. 7203


No. 7204

On one hand, unpopular opinions in /ot/ contains a lot of autism and terrible opinions no one wants to see in other threads. So this is a good thing.

On the other, its basically becoming our version of the "Fuck You And Die" threads that were on SA. It is truly becoming obnoxious and makes myself and I'm sure other posters not want to contribute for fear of being dragged into a pointless, retarded flame wars that can span dozens of posts, and what's really terrible is you can stop posting and leave, but it won't stop, because there's too many anons taking the place of the defense and offense.

If its truly too much of a mammoth task to contain that kind of nuclear autism, i suggest the staff consider at least temporarily locking the thread and having a zero tolerance policy for taking it to other threads for the time being.

No. 7205

It was reported by various anons as derailing and it is, nobody wants man hate to leak out into other threads. The anon was not perma-banned, just given a 30 minute warning.

No. 7206

there's more manhate currently flooding the vent thread. can we just permaban these people? they seem to think they're a majority and we're the minority, despite their demographic being somewhat new. accusing everyone of being handmaidens is a pretty recent thing.

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!

Stop being new.

No. 7213

we had that with /manure/ and /sty/ but both were met with a lot of protest by anons and subsequently forgotten. i agree that more boards would be good, however i think creating dedicated boards for different topics would also increase the amount of random new threads.

No. 7214

It’s a long shot to think the gaijin in japan thread, which is an ESL shite hole, needs it’s own board. But the rest I think is a good idea. I like the idea of having more themed boards too

No. 7215

ctrl+F often brings up shit results and old threads, but go off.

No. 7216

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.

Yeah I remember but I think doing something similar right now would help a lot.

No. 7218

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.

Onion brings attention to his new haircut as a "big reveal" and we can't talk about it? Really? It's nitpicking to talk about his new surprise?

No. 7221


It really feels like there's like, one or two Farmhands who show up every couple of weeks to ban everyone in sight. For some reason, Farmhands are much more concerned about nitpicking than cp or gore.

No. 7222

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.

No. 7223

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.
I always see a mysterious mention of cp or gore without ever seeing it. Rarely, if ever.

No. 7224


>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 the milk.


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/.

No. 7225

Exactly, the haircut is milky af (showing his current mental state and lack of self-awareness) and admins are causing infighting with their bitching about nitpicking. It blows the whole thing up in the first place. Can't you see how toxic your unnecessary bans are?

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.

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.

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.

Our issue is that farmhands care more about addressing nitpicks rather than actual problems that have been brought up in this thread.

No. 7247

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.

No. 7248

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.
Another farmhand took care of the gore that day.
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.

No. 7249

I don't understand those of you who think stricter moderation based on your personal opinion of what's interesting are even here for. I prefer lolcow over shitholes like PULL because anonymity promotes more discussion. I regularly and legitimately prefer to scroll past a day's worth of discussion that I find uninteresting than refreshing a thread to find no updates at all.

No. 7250

Mod, we literally reported that beheaded woman thread for an entire day before it even got taken care of, meanwhile MULTIPLE people had been banned for dumb shit throughout the day. Pay attention more, being "understaffed" isn't an excuse when you're still banhappy during that time.

Can someone define the manhate that ot is supposed to be so full of? Like, can't we say anything critical or negative about a man/men's behaviour before it's hate and has to be posted in a specific thread?
When does it become hate, that is what I'm wondering.

No. 7254

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.

No. 7255

I just checked that thread and it's just an anon saying she is suspicous of men who talk about how crazy all their exes are. Seems like kinda normal wariness against projecting weirdos.

No. 7256

No. 7257

No joke. I feel as if any time you say anything remotely negative about men in /ot/ we get a massive amounts of "MODS CAN YOU PLEASE BAN THE FEMCELS IN THE X THREAD THEY'RE JUST RAMPANT" screeching in here after they themselves got into a derail lasting for 70 replies and hurt their feefees. I really never see actual aggressive man-hate outside of the containment thread either so I don't really get where all of this comes from.

No. 7258

Hey mods, since it took you a whole day last time to check the complaints, I figured I'd post directly to you here. There's two threads that were made in /ot/, one showing a rape scene from a film and the other a loli-looking character in a pornographic scene. One has been up for nearly an HOUR already. Maybe actually do something this time instead of letting it stay up for a whole day!

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.

agreed. and idc if a small minority of women use it. there's no equivalence and it's stupid. robots and incels are the ones who want it to catch on, especially in female communities. i can see female 'foreveralones' using it ironically, but there is literally no equivalent since 'femcels' aren't out here murdering men for being deprived of dick and male attention.

>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.

No. 7274

The last Gender Critical thread derailed into a massive man hate spergfest on the topic of war completely unrelated to troons. Mods did nothing. I know management has a hate boner for that thread for some reason, but it is not the place for general misandry.

No. 7275

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.

No. 7276

Well said.

No. 7277

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.

No. 7279

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.

I do not always agree with their moderation and at times share the exact same frustration as every other user in this thread but regardless I enjoy this site very much and hope to see it survive the incoming leadership changeover. I also appreciate fellow anons, especially us here that care enough to come to /meta/ to try and improve the site further.

No. 7284

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.
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.
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

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?

No. 7297

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.
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.

No. 7299

Why cant we long term ban the sperg anons who keep making shit up and purposefully taking Instagram images from Moo to try and spread and derail the threads with false info?

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 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.

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.

This. My main issues with the users in that thread are situations like these (that many will claim never happen). I think there is way too much shit slinging and push for this site to be 100% radfem and 100% anti-man, and some of us don't really care about discussing that kind of thing.

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.
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?

All anons should get a ban reason, if there is no ban reason than it may be a cycled IP, we can still undo those bans as long as appeals are submitted.
