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?
Yeah, accused of rape in a PULL thread full of underage weebs who genuinely do have vendettas against her and by a poster whose only form of evidence was a poorly written
account. Probably the same one who posted the link to it in the thread since the typing style was the same. Morena may have milk, but this isn't it. None of the shit about her that's been posted in the past few days has actually been milky at all.
Pretty sure you're same wk anon whose just been samefagging, derailing, trying to get the thread locked, and threatening to report/false reporting users who simply asked you (multiple times) why you think it's vendetta. And you gave no reason why. The anons in the thread have posted screenshots and detailed op summaries (scamming money, harassing users, bragging about being a hoe, screaming at people who stop giving her money, lying, sexual assault allegations, etc), you on the other hand haven't posted one piece of evidence. Stop ruining the thread for the many farmers that are interested in it. She posted it on her public social media, so its fair game to give our observations on if.
And nice try trying to slip in that lie about the rape accusations being a "fanfic" (lol) when it was actually a pretty detailed call-out post by someone she knows personally. Your even using the same words, typing, and bs excuse.
They're pretty blatantly Mira too lol
That thread is comedically shitty
No, I wasn't samefagging, I never said she had no milk, I'm not trying to white knight her or get the thread locked in any way, and I never said every post in the thread was a vendetta post. Multiple different anons think that thread has a vendetta problem, not just me. Those dumb SA allegations really aren't milk and neither are any of these:>>>/snow/735992
(disagreeing with her political beliefs isn't milk unless your an sjw)>>>/snow/735600>>>/snow/735599
(denying the SA allegations isn't milk either, not to hard to see how retardedly implausible they are unless you're looking at her with shit-tinted glasses)
>you on the other hand haven't posted one piece of evidence
Here are some examples of vendetta-y posts made in her thread in the past two days:>>>/snow/736179>>>/snow/736160>>>/snow/736133
(also "hi cow")>>>/snow/736154>>>/snow/736033>>>/snow/735995>>>/snow/735975>>>/snow/735943>>>/snow/735635>>>/snow/735621>>>/snow/735588>>>/snow/735532
(cowtipping as well)>>>/snow/735534
I.e. most of them. Most of them sound like samefags as well. It wouldn't be a "false report" to report any of these posts, really.
>"it was actually a pretty detailed call-out post by someone she knows personally.">taking a post made by an anonymous throwaway account on PULL of all places as gospel
You sound like pic related, anon.
And by the way, getting this heated and defensive over this isn't exactly helping your case.
File: 1542885243630.png (186.71 KB, 475x300, 0_v7gmjOTELi-Oysz.png)
ugh, dropped pic.
refresh if there's more than one ver. of that post.
KEK the first 3 posts you linked are literally just screenshots with no text whatsoever! >1st) Disagreeing with her political beliefs”
It’s a screenshot from her snap of her getting banned on Twitter. No ones disagreeing with anything. That’s milk.>2nd) a screenshot from her snap of a screenshot of the allegations with some text of her getting pissy. Relevant screencap.>3rd) “denying the SA allegations isn't milk either”
It’s a screenshot of her snap of a screencap of her texts and and denying allegations. That’s relevant to the accusations as it’s her response to them.
The rest of the posts you linked:
Over HALF of the posts you linked were posts calling YOU out for derailing and shitting up the thread and saying it’s not vendetta/asking you why you think it’s vendetta. Including 2 of my posts (that were in response to you) asking you to stop derailing the thread.
Anons getting annoyed at you for derailing and threatening to report anons is not “vendetta-y” posts.
The only ones I agree with are cowtipping, besides that none of them break the rules or are “vendetta-y”, one is even just a l video she posted on YT where an anon said “she blamed the wrong person for spitting on her” based on the footage.
“I’m not trying to get the thread locked”
Really? Then why did you just link of bunch of non-vendetta posts and throw in random posts that aren’t breaking the rules?
>And by the way, getting this heated and defensive over this isn't exactly helping your case
….what case….all I said was to stop derailing and to hide the thread if you don’t like it…. take a chill pill
What you didn’t really address:
derail and you did
threaten people with reporting in response to anons politely asking you why you thought it was vendetta (false reporting is a common way to try to get a thread locked down). So where’s the lie?
>”None of the shit about her that's been posted in the past few days has actually been milky at all”
When the thread hadn’t even been posted in for a month before it was necroed only 2 days ago
specifically for the rape allegation. Which she
posted about on her
public social. So it was brought to her thread
, as it is relevant to her
, to discuss and post related screenshots. That’s the only milk that been posted “in the past few days”. And yes, sexual assault allegations ARE milk. And they have been on every thread that has had a cow facing the same allegations.
You haven’t posted 1 thing to debunk the allegations, just randomly insisted it’s vendetta/pulltards/fanfic so you’re point is moot until you actually give a reason why it has no merit and why it’s not milk.
If you think the posts are not up to par then hide the damn thread (like anons have been telling you to do)
But just bc you personally
don’t believe the sexual assault allegations, doesn’t mean they aren’t and doesn’t mean all discussions of them are “vendetta”, doesn’t mean screenshots of her public posts where she addresses them are “vendetta” and certainly doesn’t mean anons asking you to explain or to stop derailing is “vendetta”.
I can’t believe I actually had to click on all those posts just to see you bs-ing, again
According to your logic we also shouldn't believe any farmer on /ot/ or /g/ who posts about being abused by her parents or bf, because afterall she could just be an anonymous troll making up "fanfics".
Just the fact that you call rape accusations a fanfiction, as if Morena was famous or someone anybody (besides you I guess) would admire…
Do you doubt women who come forward "irl" about being raped as well? I mean, they could also lie, who knows?
Did you believe Morena when she said that she got harrassed on the street? She looked pretty happy and relaxed in that "evidence" video she posted. Hm…
Jesus, vendetta-chan. Can you please settle down and tl;dr this? It's unreadable in it's current state.>>7333
Did you even read that "callout post"? If so, I genuinely don't understand how you think any of those things are comperable to it at all. If it wasn't so blatantly full of shit, I wouldn't be doubting it. Some of the mistakes the OP of that post made were soren-teir ffs.
The thought crossed my mind, too. Then again, I've seen anons infight over these topics in other threads before.
Whatever is going on, they are still going at it despite a Farmhand's warning.
Also, posting anime girls. I don't have anything against anime itself despite not watching it but whenever someone posts anime reaction pics it makes me suspicious.
I'm used to lolcow having less anime reaction pics compared to other imageboards
Disagreeing with other posters isn’t ground for cleaning up. You faggots keep samefagging here and her thread. stop soap boxing and post the real thread. Nobody cares if you find Brianna or other cows problematic
OK, I'll stay hopeful about an answer on the Isa thread.
For the bans thing, I use a vpn and have mentioned in here several times about bans that aren't mine, don't have a reason and are unlimited. At one point, Admin asked me to email if it was still happening so I did. Those bans are still in place, months later. I've been appealing them every time I run into them but they persist.

sorry just didnt think it was cool for anons to be hostile to others just for posting complaints, in the a thread for complaints
I'm venting, skip over this if you have already consumed your daily salt allowance.
It's such a waste to see actual gossip and conversations that can have genuine impact being left to drown in a sea of shitposts, or worse, removed posts, because trivia like manhate threads seem to dominate staff time here these days? Like seriously guys, if certain /ot/ threads waste that much of your time just nuke them? Is continuity and thread management in there really that serious?
Two examples of threads that have been stifled lately and which frustrate the hell out of me personally:
The Isa thread and the Altcows thread leading to it were chock full of suss posts which I did flag with post numbers here. Some of those posts could easily have been Raven, and it would be quite the milk fountain had she been found to be posting that here. Will we ever know? Thread got locked and as the farmhand answered upthread, the issue was put on the backburner. I would have thought Raven posting that info here (if she did) would be you know… milk. Yes I keep going on about this thread but I can't get past ignoring one of our most constant and reprehensible cows- Raven.
The Zoosadism thread was censored by someone's request for a reason, but due to lack of follow up it stayed censored, and with KF actively censoring and debunking the truth in this instance, leaving seemingly no free space to publicly discuss the id of a scumbag that anons unearthed right here in our thread, fucking ages ago. This isn't just some gossip going by the wayside, it needed action. No updates were given to the thread about how things were progressing with unmasking this guy and whether we could talk about him again or take action or who was doing what. Just letting this go into the ether was not okay. But at the same time, I wanted to trust the people who said or implied they were working on it, including admin (who implied they were in the know). And if you didn't talk to Null, then why the hell not? Given he was the main censor, here had to be a reason for it. Don't visit this thread if you want to avoid the subject matter, it's upsetting- Admin's post about this today giving some context >>>/snow/738194
In short, good milk is going bad while /ot/ etc are being kept tidy.
You seriously came to /meta/ to say this? I think it can be really annoying in excess too, but holy fucking lol that's pathetic.>>7387
Lolcow dot farm isn't a hugbox. Do you want to ban anons who call other anons retards too?
no one said anything about banning, you seem triggered
but you're trying to shut down their opinion of your posts and their opinion of what you're saying? youre kind of trying to police thought/opinion here yourself
if they think you sound like a man, ok?? so what?
I mean, ~handmaidens~ seem fine with doing that by calling every non-liberal feminist a TERF because she disagrees with you.
I clicked meta just now hoping that it'll be the first time in ages that I've clicked it and it isn't some bullshit about the radfems or manhate thread or something. Y'all can't stop whining but then post stuff like "u seem triggered
:)))" as if this didn't start over a post where you're trying to pretend being called a ~handmaiden~ doesn't "trigger
" you when it so clearly does.
ones need to sage their shit, they're the ones not having it either.
can though, taking the bait is fucking pathetic as hell. if you guys need to be babied reconsider your thread at all tbh. i'm sick of manhating anons coming ITT and whining about how stupid their fellow posters cause they can't even ignore bait that's been banned
already. that's fucking sad.
I agree, male posts should be deleted AND replies to them as well. Leave no trace of their existence.

•derailing on any board is a bannable offense
For example, taking bait from robots on /ot/ or derailing Onision threads by nitpicking Lainey's ring for days
3.5a Do not engage with trolls. Report and move on.
Why not both? Delete and ban the robots plus give temporary bans to idiot anons disputing them instead of ignoring and reporting.
They are half of the problem. And they are helping derail the thread >>7430
which is already against rules.
Nobody wants to read anons argue woth spergs as it makes them shit up threads even more. Why are the robot posts so irrestible that anons can't stop themself from arguing? They will not change anyone's mind.
Ban both. Boggles my mind why anons feel the need to go back and forth with robots and write paragraphs expressing their hate. You can't reason with robots, but you can nip that shit in the bud and not engage with them like it says so in the global RULES ffs.
Anons always want to get their two scents in to one up male posters, but by doing that they end up derailing their own damn threads. One male posting something stupid in a thread isn't derailment, the dozen other anons replying with "begone scrot lol xDDx" is
ill hop on this train. one person litters the thread and 12 triggered
anons leave their shit in the wake. even if mods came in and deleted bait, there would still be 8 posts following it screeching about scrots and desperately needing to validate themselves to the male poster.

Mentioned before, but can this shit please be bannable in /ot/ and /snow/? People coming to a thread about a cow and specifically trying to derail any negative discussion of the cow? Has happened a million times over with Jeffree Star, Azealia Banks and now Ariana Grande.
Just to clarify, I'm not complaining about people having different opinions on cows, or even if farmers like certain people. But if you like that celebrity, don't come to a thread specifically dedicated to talking shit about them and complain or try to derail it by calling everything nitpicking or sperging, especially if receipts have been provided. That's just fucking stupid.
ps love the shrine to our /ot/ queen amanda-senpai
How do you figure? She's essentially the biggest celebrity right now with her entire life and breakup with her short-lived mentally ill ex-fiance on very public display. She continues to mismanage her clear truama, and her fans are insane and threaten people who criticize her in any way, all while she promotes her totally engineered smol thot peace n forgiveness uwu
The only a-logging I've seen are the people who think she's not a cow or milky in anyway.
Can you not be such an autist? Saying spergs who shit up a thread with posts about wether a cow is 5'0" or 5'2" for hours on end are annoying is not "trying to derail any negative discussion." I don't know why you came here to bitch about people being annoyed by your nitpicking when it's against the rules. You'll probably just end up getting yourself a slap on the wrist.>>7524

Did you even read my post? That's not what my complaint is at all. I'm saying in a broad way, don't go to a thread that is specifically dedicated to taking about a cow, and then get mad when people are talking about a cow. How is that not considered derailing? But since you decided to make it about Ariana specifically and also don't seem to understand anything about the human body, I'll explain it to you:
>Saying spergs who shit up a thread with posts about wether a cow is 5'0" or 5'2" for hours on end are annoying is not "trying to derail any negative discussion." I don't know why you came here to bitch about people being annoyed by your nitpicking when it's against the rules.
This is not nitpicking. Her entire persona is built around her height and stature. She's literally changed her height on google so that she appears smaller than she actually is. If it was any other celebrity I would agree that it's splitting hairs, but considering it's a huge part of her celebrity, the difference between her being 5'0" (below average height) and 5'3" (average height) is actually relevant, and is actually milk. It's also relevant in discussion about her weight, because someone who is 5'0" and looks like her would be considered a healthy weight. Someone who is 5'3" and looks light her is underweight.
In layman's terms just especially for you anon: Ariana is lying to her massive audience (a lot of which are impressionable girls) to pass herself off as a healthy weight, when really she's ana-chan. Here's a pretty picture too if you STILL don't understand why it matters, and why it's not nitpicking, you idiot.
nigger, she is lying about a two fucking inch
height difference. it's not that big of a deal and it's certainly not milk, it is pure nitpicking. you don't see anons in the kpop thread pulling this retarded shit when the heights they claim to be are obviously more than just an inch or two off their actual heights. take your vendetta somewhere else.
>someone who is 5'0" and looks like her would be considered a healthy weight. Someone who is 5'3" and looks light her is underweight.

>>7534>what the hell does this mean? that's not how that works at all kek
There's literally a picture right there explaining that that is in fact, how it works. I don't know how to make it any simpler for you to understand anon. It must be hard for you to be that stupid.
But this is what I'm talking about. Why come to a website dedicated to shit talking and then get butthurt when people are shit talking?
104 lbs at 5'2" is not underweight… if you're accusing her of being ana because she might be like 1 lb off of a healthy bmi according to that chart, you're an even bigger autist than I thought. and you said if a shorter girl looked
like her she would be fine but that 2 inch height difference made her underweight, which isn't how bmi works.
>Why come to a website dedicated to shit talking and then get butthurt when people are shit talking?
no one sounds butthurt but you. and while this is a website for talking shit, nitpicking is against the rules as is vendetta posting. we have a right to complain when you're completely derailing the thread with that trash.
File: 1544225805502.png (13.27 KB, 1062x85, wZZg3V8.png)
Keyword being OVERLY. Nta but you went off on a tangent for hours about her damn height and got buttblasted and came to this thread to complain when 3 anons disagreed with you.
I agree with you that shaving off 3 inches of your height as a celebrity is cowish and weird, and deserves to be discussed; but it absolutely does not warrant HOURS of back and forth "waah 5'3 isn't actually short". You got told off by MULTIPLE anons for overly nitpicking. That's it. If more than one anon is telling you you're being stupid, you're probably being fucking stupid, and should take your L and reflect. You are 100% in the wrong here, and mods are not going to intervene because your problem is ridiculously petty and childish and you should have kept it in the thread instead of crying here where actual site issues are being.

Well, now you're the only turning it into nitpicking by continuing to not understand anything and not understand how to read. The post from Celebricow clearly says 5'3", so I'm not sure where you're even getting 5'2" from in the first place. Again, it is how it works. You can't ever actually tell what height she is from pictures, because she's ALWAYS wearing heels. She tells us she's 5'0" and has gone as far as to have that changed on google. You look at a picture of her, seeing how skinny she is and think "well, she says she's 5ft so she's just really petite". Knowing her ACTUAL body proportions makes a difference on how healthy/unhealthy she is.>>7539
Not all of those posts were me, so I don't even know what you're talking about here. I posted some, other anons posted some backing up what I had originally stated and continuing the discussion , and then some nitpicking anon threw a hissy fit over how they didn't think it was relevant. I'm not the one nitpicking in this situation.
Mods, can you just intervene here? I don't care if that means me being banned too. I'm going to restate my point here again, since I used the Ariana thing just as a recent example and it got twisted into me supposedly being butthurt because that one anon didn't like several other people talking abour relevant information:>Just to clarify, I'm not complaining about people having different opinions on cows, or even if farmers like certain people. But if you like that celebrity, don't come to a thread specifically dedicated to talking shit about them and complain or try to derail it by calling everything nitpicking or sperging, especially if receipts have been provided. That's just fucking stupid.
Why do you assume anyone who calls out your nitpicking is an Arianna fan? What you and the other anons did (and are continuing to do) was
nitpicking/sperging and only another nitpicker/sperg would deny that claim.
1. That is in no way a crucial part of her persona
2. Mini-modding isn't against the rules on /ot/
3. Anons would be right to complain about it because you derailed the fucking thread for hours

>>7545>That is in no way a crucial part of her persona
You're an idiot. If it's not a crucial part of her persona and those 3 inches don't even matter like you keep screaming about, then why does she go so far out of her way to lie about it?
>Anons would be right to complain about it because you derailed the fucking thread for hours over it
If you really think so then report it and move on. It's the mod's job to decide what's nitpicking and what's not. It's not yours. It's not derailing, because the thread is about celebrities and we were discussing a celebrity. I don't know why this all needs to be explained to you. Also I'm sorry, I didn't realize someone locked you in a room and FORCED you to sit there and refresh the thread non-stop for exactly 2 hours and 7 minutes.
>Mini-modding isn't against the rules on /ot/
Sure, but "Do not derail or disrupt the conversation." is. Throwing a hissy fit because people are having a conversation you don't like is derailing. If you don't like the conversation, don't read it. If you think it's derailing or nitpicking, report it. If neither of those things make you happy, then I don't know what to tell you. Stop using the internet if you're that offended by other people's opinions.
There's no need to derail two
threads with arguments about Ariana Grande. You can both knock it off. >>7555
Don't assume other users haven't
received bans. Your post wasn't redtexted either.
5 days ago, you received a 2-day ban for racebaiting and appealed it, which we accepted. You immediately went on to post another race-related comment despite a Farmhand warning to stop. You generally post a lot
of OTT racebaiting and don't even contribute to the main boards, which makes you look like a bit lost.
Sorry mod. I was just trying to use the Ariana thing as a recent example of mini-modding, I don't understand why it got turned onto me specifically. What I was trying to ask was for mini-modding be bannable in all boards. It's just annoying to constantly see people throwing a hissy fit over what they deem to be "nitpicking" or not on boards. (MULTIPLE boards, not just celebricows.)>>7551>Go whine about it to /meta/ to make mods ban everyone who disagrees>STILL screeching at mods to ban everyone here because they're not agreeing with meeeee
Direct quotes from my posts:>Just to clarify, I'm not complaining about people having different opinions on cows, or even if farmers like certain people.>Mods, can you just intervene here? I don't care if that means me being banned too.
I don't know why I have to keep restating my purpose here.
>Start sperging out for multiple lengthy ass posts IN FUCKING /META/
I literally just used Ariana as an example, the other anon turned it into an Ariana rant.
>Get told by other people that your Ariana sperging is stupid and cringeworthy
It's the mods job to do that, not random anons. Report it and move on if you think it's nitpicking.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
We're sending >>7557
on a few days' vacation to calm down.
>>7549>create a filter that changes ariana grande into amanda seyfried?
I love you so much anon, seconding this, the AS bg was wonderful.>>7605
Agreed, the reason it’s there is for the sheer irony of mystery rage hating sex workers, while being one herself. But
it would be nice if we could submit new banners to be added. I spent hours making a gif banner just to find it had been locked and artfags have been pouring in this year so maybe it’d lead to some really creative banners.
Thanks. See, I was here when that all went down and I still didn't even know that some random girl rubbing her ass was Mystery.jpg.>>7632
Sure, but if multiple people have requested it taken down….why not take it down? I just don't understand the logic here. Are there that many people that would be upset if they didn't get to see that girl's ass at the top of the website every day? Instead of telling multiple people to use adblock to block the image, can't the people that REALLY need to see her ass just watch that vid? If that image was posted in a thread today it would need to be spoilered, and people would be mad if it wasn't. If it's about having a mystery.jpg related banner there's plenty of milk that can be used otherwise without having to have literal porn in everyone's face.
You're savage anon lol>>7653
I have to agree. Just delete them and ban people who fall for the bait
Ugh same. Why did they start coming here?
Next thing you know we'll have threads wherein the first 40 posts are void of content asspats, "Here for it" " Sits
" "Just marking my place dom't mind me" "Posting to read later" "I have arrived" "Insert shitty gif of some lady sitting down" from Orange is the New Black or smth
The non-subtle avatarfagging is ridiculous, they treat it like a chat room, blogpost, and easily get into these antagonistic arguments about the most smallest, vague, nitpicky things esp racebaiting.
Sometimes I wonder if they honestly think they have
to attach a picture or gif, in order
to post a text comment here. Every.single.post.
>~”go off, sis”~
[insert gif of F-list reality show celebrity rolling her eyes]
I honestly wonder how those types even found LC. I'm sure there were a handful of crossposters, but they didn't use gifs constantly. Is it because of the celebrity thread?
Tinfoil, but I think the bulk of the racebait stuff is coming from LSA posters, male posters trying to cause infighting and the edgy racist-chans who used to shit up this place years ago (see the old politics thread on /ot/) .
T, yes. LGB, no.
About LGB in general?
NAYRT, but the sperging over Amina's skin has been happening even before the LSA occupation. I saw it on /bannedcows/ years ago.
The Morena In Japan thread is definitely filled with PULLtards, not so much LSA users. I looked up Morena on the former to cross check, and it seems she's not too well-known, and opinions on her range from mild to ambivalent. Some like her for ~*sex positivity*~ reasons, others feel bad for her or think she's gross. No discussion to be found on her being "woke" or not, and there were only a handful of replies to a thread about her raping someone. Most people didn't seem to fully believe it, in stark contrast to the PULL users going crazy and insisting it's true.
I don't want to even touch the K-pop generals on either site since they're so cancerous, so no word on that. I really feel like you can detect LSA posters most heavily in the Celebricow, vent and unpopular opinions threads.
You're right but I agree that its mostly Black/Race baiting anons who do this about Amina. If you go to Lipstick alley shit about her, a lot of it is kpop fans sperging about her skin tone or mentioning irrelevent Black girls who 'would be so much more popular in Japan!!!1" on here and on LSA. There's def some crossover. As for Morena I've seen people on her thread here mentioning how she isnt "pro black" but yeah youre right thats mostly PULL crossover.
The kpop thread has the most LSA crossover imo. Theres way too much gifs and race baiting for it not to lmao.
I looked up "Aminyan" and didn't get many results at all, so I doubt most of the current invaders know or care about her, but I did find this thread on her from 2017 (last time she was mentioned there) where someone explicitly linked to Lolcow:https://www.lipstickalley.com/threads/whats-the-tea-on-amina-du-jean.1313830/#post-33352438
The poster in that thread who linked here also posted about her in 2015, so even if that thread is dry, now we know there is some connection. I actually am one of the farmers who started looking into the Amina thread at first (specifically, I'm one of the people you're referring to who compared her to a less weird-looking/ugly girl lmao) because even though she's not that interesting, it struck me as way too suspicious that there was always a WK getting the threads locked in /snow/, so I'm not that quick to believe it's a recent LSA invasion.
I'm the anon who has been posting the error messages in the technical help thread. Admin hasn't replied if having the Ray IDs is helpful, so I won't bother any longer.
I take it you're the anon who was banned for it? Did you email Admin?
File: 1544990684215.jpg (172.64 KB, 874x814, bs.jpg)
why did i get banned for this? i don't care if it was a warning, whoever banned this is a fucking retard.
Anyone who has ever lurked a Moo thread already knows the hate over her wanting to look like a kawaii anime gurl.
What did your post contribute? You just stated a nitpick that's been said bunches of times.
Out of curiosity, I went back to the thread and looked at the picture that you thought merited such a heavy-handed response and it's…a fully clothed selfie of her wearing fox ears.
Yes, she's an annoying weeb. Yet what about it is even particularly "BDD delusional"? You could've picked any other of those gross lewds that were posted where she's totally acting up her own ass, but you picked one of the tamest pictures I've seen of her posted recently and went off because you have some weird inner projection about wearing animal ears in public. The fuck cares. You needed the timeout.
This isn't baseless though, especially since the one time she brought it up was after
seeing us talk about it here. Remember that the lipo talk that people tried to talk about before the truth came out was also a heated debate. There was a ton of infighting over the lipo speculation. Then we find out that Mariah didn't have one lipo session, but multiple. I don't see why that isn't the case with tax since she's a huge liar and not doing them is definitely up her alley. It's not something that came out of thin air. The proof that she did
pretend to do was that she was doing taxes by hand with pencil and paper during the final days of the tax deadline. And honestly, the anon getting her panties in a twist in that thread should report rather than constantly yelling stop and trying to control what people talk about every time it happens. Just report it and move on.>>7722
This however is completely baseless. Moo's a molester but she has never expressed any interest in children.
Came here to ask this same thing.
You guys are killing this website even faster than it was dying already by not addressing these server issues. People are only going to wait around for so long after their posts can't be made. I already noticed a huge dip in activity this past weekend probably due to those very issues.

Farmhands, care to explain why I got a 24-hour ban for an image that didn't contain any nudity and yet pictures of Shaygnar's nasty, infected puss can go barely covered and unspoilered without ban?
Gosh, it's almost like "blogging" is just a convenient catchall phrase that the staff throw around when they need an excuse to censure an opinion they don't like.
Oh wait, wait. No, I remember. It's length. Blog posts are usually just excessively long…
>>The post was like 4 sentences long
I mean, that's like….a whole paragraph anon. And if it wasn't a paragraph of nitpicks then it really has no place on lolcow at this point.
But seriously, this is the reason why post quality is declining. Making a thoughtful post that contributes to the discussion gets you a ban, so why wouldn't you lurk at that point?
As per admin from the previous Complaint thread:
>>Posts with an excessive length don't fit imageboard culture and are usually associated with blogging or some sort of derailing>>>/meta/6276
It was immediately pointed out how retarded that statement is:
>>'d say none of the staff here has any prior chan experience, seeing as random shit admins and farmhands have said isn't anything i've seen on chans…the excessive length thing has little to do with actual blogposting. walls of text are shit in some threads but they're not blogposting. >>>/meta/6288

Mods this thread has been broken for a couple of days now and there's been multiple complaints about it itt. What's going on? Can we get some acknowledgement at least?
Maybe I'm completely off base, but I doubt any celebrity (or their publicist) would know about this place. All of the news in that thread comes from other sites and all of the celebrities there are well known and discussed on just about every other site.
Either way I hope it comes back.

We need to stop bots advertising discord’s here, I’m tired of seeing a bunch of newfags get lured into seeing their dick pics.
Seriously they spam them way too often and their posts stay up for hours.
>>Well, I got a redtext ban a couple of weeks ago for blogposting (I wasn't, I was responding to a comment another anon made about a cow filing a discrimination lawsuit and it had nothing to do with my personal experiences) and then when I attempted to post in a thread I received a message saying that I needed to "tone down the wall of text" and showing me the post which was redtexted for blogposting. So that's confusing and feels inconsistent.
>>I'm also not sure where in the rules it says that posts shouldn't exceed a certain length, (I could just be missing it) but that also seems very subject to the whims of a particular farmhand.
>>Posts with an excessive length don't fit imageboard culture and are usually associated with blogging or some sort of derailing. The ban may have been related to that. You can read more about it under the /snow/ and /pt rules, it's number 1.
I'm no IT person but the multiple posting issue could be due to the amount of posts in whatever database this site uses. Or just something up with whatever VPS this website uses.
Deleting the threads would only be ok if there was an archive for this site, so dead/inactive threads can get moved there anyway.
speaking of autosage put fucking taylor r back on autosage,
it's just people who cant read chinese speculating about scummy shit using google translate, its a trash fire why do you enable this.
It's been getting more and more frequent.
Can the admin weigh in on if an IP range ban would be in order? Or would we have too many farmer causalities?
>that video of the poor girl from Norway>beheading video
I don't dare to check that shit, but what the fuck???
Also, did anybody heard anything back from their application for any of the positions for this site?
The banner has been up for a while now but nothing really happened until now? Lolcow is dead, long live lolcow?
There was a recent gruesome murder in Morroco, of two tourists. The perpetrators filmed it and posted it online which obviously was upsetting to the victim's families. Norwegian police is trying to get rid of the video. Farmers were discussing it in one thread and berating one poster for watching it. It seems to have triggered
some psycho robot.
As gross as this shit is, maybe somebody should take a screenshot of it where it has been posted bc last time somebody told us that they never saw gore being posted on /ot even when lots of farmers reported it. I mean >>7814
already linked some examples but yeah. Idk what is happening.
File: 1545501999963.png (Spoiler Image, 468.52 KB, 800x1128, gore on ot.png)
Gore and bukkake on /ot/.
Yep, they've just been deleted. A whole 11 hours of undeleted gore all over /ot/. I had to download an extension switching every single image on pages with Nicolas Cage pictures, although the damage was already done.
Have you guys seen any redtext/bans issued on the other boards during the last 11 hours?
It's comforting to know that gore/illegal content can stay up for hours but if you step out of line and say anything that's based on personal knowledge or make a post longer than 1 sentence then the ban-hammer will fucking crush you for blogposting.
I'm just really relieved that the staff has their priorities in order and that I can browse the site free from any opinions that the staff disagree with but still be subjected to horrific snuff porn for hours on end.
I mean, that's the whole point of adhering to board culture, right?
and its funny not all notpick posts get deleted just certain ones which is weird. Priorities indeed.
The thing is, we know why the staff won't say anything: because some of them agree with the tinfoil and nitpicks.
It's easy to see the stuff they don't like, because it gets a blogpost ban or a straight up call out in redtext.
I agree it's spergy as fuck and constantly derailing any discussion of actual milk, but that's what the farmhands want lolcow to be now. They've decided that's the board culture.
It sucks, but it's not as if we don't know why some posts get bans and some don't.>>7849
fucking calm down. i'm not even on one side or the other, but coming to the meta thread to bitch is fucking lame. let them say whatever they want. one of two things will occur

They are clogging up the threads and it just makes everything look so bad.

There has been one tending the site during the last several hours, and someone is replying to site email as "What ever" got a tripcode today.
I got banned and my appeal was granted. They said that the server issues are being worked on.
if you apply once and don't hear back, you didn't get it. three times? yeah you're right, that's not a hint, that's an obvious 'just no'. I like shitposting just to annoy you and that shitty thread you obsess over. The rest of the goddamn site is falling apart, the staff are ghosts and it feels like a large portion of the userbase has fucked off, but nah let's cry some more about how you don't get to be boss of the most loathed thread on the board.>>7928
I don't feel like much has changed with the farmhands - there were a handful, now there are a few less / less active. It's hard to tell since red-texting became some sort of rare and random occurrence. Admin seems to have just left.
The server issues have been 'worked on' for ages and it's only getting worse.
Nice strawman, seems like you ignored the rest of my posts. I originally applied to mod /ot/ board because of the spamposts ruining the site. It was pointed most of this started in the manhate thread which is why I then applied to mod that thread.
>The rest of the site is falling apart the staff are ghosts and it feels like a large portion of the userbase has fucked off
Can you really be surprised when they are forced to deal with whiny cunts like you who brag about shitposting and then bitch at them to clean up after you?
>but nah let's cry some more about how you don't get to be boss of the most loathed thread on the board
Oh ease up on the overdramatisation there princess. I already explained above why I applied, and you are whining about peoples complaints with the site in the thread which is about…peoples complaints with the site. Nice going Einstein, I see you accepting your Darwin award any day now.
As previously stated I appreciate the mods still here and imagine that their workload must be huge which is why I applied, but given they have to deal with assholes like you I cant blame the ones who have left.

Just typed a good few sentences in response to this post only to LOSE EVERYTHING I WROTE bc I have a ban that already expired
for making a post in the PnP thread about her titty scar peeking out being white trash– for "nitpicking".
Okayyy, yeah, I totally go out all the time in tops that showcase my blown-out breast enhancement scars that sit too high on my tit each time I move a millimeter. Teehee oopsies~ don't we all from time to time? Such a Nit Pick to point that out in a published publicly photo, in a thread where that is a point of humor. Under a home-cut wife beater, at that. Hehe hate it when those lil things just happen amirite girls??
Anyways I really wish I didn't lose all that shit I typed out for nothing. Happy New Year anyways!
It doesn't work like that for me unfortunately >>7986
That's just like, your opinion man.
The anisa thread is bar none the biggest shithole on the entire site. You will never
be taken off autosage. Stop asking.
If nobody cared about the celebrity drama, they could just ignore the thread?
I would never spend money on tabloids.
Besides the internet is more fun for talking about celebrities, so I don't understand what the problem is with making a thread for one celebrity - if no one replies, then the thread dies. No need to delete it - which farmhands do.
the majority of people do ignore it, myself included. go cry about ariana grande somewhere else tbh. the bitch has been famous since she was like 12. there's no real milk there. go read perez hilton or something.
also the farmhands have the right to delete autistic as fuck threads so i don't really see where you're going with this.
Anon I wish we could get some super secret, behind the scenes insight into Hollywood but unfortunately that kind of detective work is rarely for free. The thread would be pretty much dead, without things like the AB and Grimes Saga or the Angelina spergout detective work.
What should be the minimum criteria for posting? Obviously physical nitpicks are against the rules, but posts about behaviors should obviously be allowed. Is there something special about AG that causes so many other farmers to physically nitpick?
its a shit pile but lets not act like every other thread on this site is a holy grail

Honestly at this point can we just have a separate board for Moo & Onion or something where you can stick all their threads and archives? That's basically all /pt/ is at this point anyways. People are stupid and necro the old ones etc, do we REALLY need 6 threads of them floating around at all times? Especially when every other topic/cow gets shoved in the corner. Or bring manure back so the useless locked threads are out of the way or so idiots can't keep necro-ing the maxed threads
Not everyone is obsessed with Moo and Onion. I don't even look at /pt/ anymore because I know that's all that gonna be there.
Because no one wants to see that shit on the front page. It eventually turns threads into remote echo chambers or kills them off entirely. Works sort of like a quarantine.
>Who actually goes into the catalog to only click on the top threads? Don't you just have favorites that you follow?
What are you a newfag? It's a waste of time to pick out and refresh a bunch of individual threads. This site isn't that active. It's easier to just check the first few pages and see what got bumped, especially if you follow more than one or two cows.
I bookmark and periodically check threads bc I don't follow like 75% of the threads on here. I never use the front page.
I have threads hidden but it's annoying and messy, plus if a thread I follow is auto-saged how would I know if I only checked the front page? Wouldn't it just unceremoniously fade to the bottom?
I'm laughing bc I've been coming here for years and have apparently been navigating it most retardedly.
One person is no big deal but imagine if that type of behavior wasn't punished, threads would be full of anons shitting up asking to be spoonfed. I can imagine how shitty that would be.>>8053
I guess that makes sense if you agree with what the mods do all the time. Sometimes I don't though.
When the new admin starts, can we have a hellweek or something? Because we really need it. So many people have flooded the site recently - old threads are being nerco'd left and right, people aren't saging, newfags aren't integrating. It's making the board unbearable at times.>>8048
Odd. I never use the front page, only the catalog - I figured that's what most people do. I ctrl + F and find the cows I actually follow, even a few autosaged ones. You sound like the only newfag here. Some of us have been following specific cows for years - not just whatever lands on the front page.
& a few more–my bad, I was using "front page" and "catalog" interchangeably. Whoops
There are no male mods. Everyone is a verified woman. The original admin was a male. >>8062

Can I ask why I recieved a ban for necroing a thread that hadn’t been inactive for more than two weeks? There is no point in me making a new fakeboi thread if this one hasn’t filled up. The ban has since expired, but I’m still confused as to why I received it in the first place.
Thank you for getting rid of the manhate threads!>>8073
You morons made a new thread despite the previous one being locked. The site is not your playground.
Lmao it was OBVIOUS that a man made the thread. Are you retarded ? Nevertheless, that doesnt answer my question. Farmers werent responding to bait, everything was going okay, so why ban it?>>8077
i was the OG anon that vented about something very SPECIFIC irw men (after two other anons told me it was ok) and then some ""antifemcel"" started being aggro and nitpicking which ensued.
Sorry about that! I know the ban is expired now but I agree it isn't a necro worthy ban. Honest mistake, feel free to appeal something like this next time.>>8073
Man-hate was locked because of racebaiting and the fact that anons have taken robot bait for over a year now. It's up to the new admin to decide if the topic will be back or not but for now it's off the table.>>8080
Again, that is entirely up to the new admin.>>8077
Feel free to report posts like these. It's easier to quickly ban if it's reported.
My comment >>8031
was not about the plasticnproud thread. Did you even read it?
The threads I linked to are shit and would have been deleted from /pt/ if they were started now. They were necroed by a raid or newfags. And now farmers have replied to one of them to say it's a shit thread, apparently not noticing it's 3 fucking years old.>>8066
>all mods are women
And hopefully not "women".
I bet whoever is doing it is doing this on purpose bc /pt/ is unusable now. Old trash threads that are OT with 10 replies like the ones being bumped shouldn't even be kept on the site anymore, let alone be not-locked.
Keep threads that are about legit cows, since they serve archival milk purposes, obv.
It's probably a raid. I have suggested this several times when this shit happens including 3 days ago >>8031
but admin and mods have never replied.
hellweek has been 'coming soon' for 6+ months. >>8073
the man-hate tar pit is gone? awesome! may it stay dead.
How many times should we report something before coming here to get mods' attention?
This has happened to several other threads during the last two months.>>8117
The Shayna thread is restored here >>>/snow/765135
This issue will most likely be resolved once we moved to our new server.
mini modding isn't even bannable dude.>>8133
banned topic until further notice. it says ITT. >>8081
Personally what I think is getting really old is the sheer amount of threads being bumped without milk when people don’t sage. As long as it’s within reason, I don’t see people telling others to sage as a problem. It can also be a way to let new posters know they need to sage their posts.>>8081
I know this may come across as a stupid question, but what is a robot post and how does one tell them apart from regular posts?
>>8136>as long as it's within reason
That's my point–it's excessive. New posters have the onus to read the rules. It's not other farmers' jobs to let them know how to post properly. >>8137
Yeah idk what the other anon was talking about that's been a rule.
Plus from what I understand not everyone uses the catalog. But every
user is forced to see endless no-content "sage ur shit" in literally every other post.

Can someone please ban the annoying edgelord in the shay-gnar thread? (pic related)
Hello dear farm hands, can someone ban the white knight in the Myah Alanna thread? Thanks! >>>/snow/482064
for ease of access.

staff are ghosts, redtexting is too hard, nitpicking and autism is at all time highs, and obvious reports still need a reason attached. Gonna be a great year.
(yeah, yeah, ban evasion, I'll see myself out)
Why was >>>/snow/767512
this, i asked the same further up the thread with no response. She desperately needs a thread. >>8176
She got her lawyers to contact lc's host to take down her thread because she's a typical insecure cow
no, there was just an obvious influx of maleposting. some robots are probably still lurking to try to get a rise out of us, but there is definitely less male traffic on the site without threads like that.
plus they didn't get banned because of that, they got banned because many of the posters derailed the threads by responding to shit quality bait, hell, it got to the point where a man made a fake thread to bait anons into it and it worked. male traffic or not, the main users of those threads are pretty vile. i'm glad they're gone. and i personally don't think they should come back because they're cringy threads for cringy people to bitch about cringy men's cringy actions. anons who use those threads always seem like paranoid cynics who don't leave their houses.
That's silly, those threads were full of stories about actually abusive and violent men. It was about hating those guys not your dad anon, lol.
Personally I think they were depressive to read (because of the shit some men do and because of the trolls) but some of you anons hatred for them just seems irrational.
it brings crazy people here.>>8202>wanting to read stories about abusive and violent men>not being crazy
pick one. that thread was just as fucked up as if we had a thread that was just to daily update the number of women murdered worldwide. we know
this shit happens, we know
there are insane men out there, but it doesn't matter to most of us on a day to day basis. i've been abused, raped and forced to have a child, but i don't want to read random news about that kind of sick shit happening to others.
Why was >>>/snow/769321
banned when the comment they replied to was a milkless necro?
I'm gonna be honest and say I don't understand the point of autosage. Is anon wanting autosage so the shitty thread doesn't show up on her catalog anymore? So that means she's not interested in following the thread anymore, right? So why not hide it?
Or is the idea to autosage until the thread gets back on track?
Apologies for retardation.

why did i get a ban for this??? miranda used to work at a fucking hostess club and was a slut (in her own words). this is a totally legitimate theory. her suddenly being muslim doesn't mean that she's not going to prostitute herself when she was clearly doing so before.
I agree with this anon. Like we really can't discuss pnp on here anymore? It wasn't that
bad of a thread. Lame.
>>8254>Nice, good fucking riddance. Now if they could only do that to Anisa's thread.
they did and it was a shitty move. no matter what you think about the posters and the nitpicking that went on in anisa's thread, the fact remains that the thread was already on autosage, not harming anyone, and there was plenty of milk to be found. in the last day alone, anisa dropped a video exploiting her dying dad's illness for pity points & views ffs, and there's still the ongoing brittany venti drama. there are much milder cows whose threads remain open, plus, to reiterate, the thread had already been on autosage for about a year.
locking the thread was a biased decision and nothing will change my mind about that. it's pretty convenient for anisa that the thread got locked when she was facing the most criticism in her "career"; how nice for her that one of her top donors and #1 whiteknight, blinko, is a (male!) mod here. she's been protected from the beginning, with mods and the old admin openly mocking people who posted in her thread, handing out unfair bans to people who dared talk about her, putting the thread on autosage, and now finally locking it completely.
i can see the direction that lolcow is headed and it's not good. cows have mod friends on the inside to protect them (in anisa's case, it's a fucking male WK), "man hate" is now a banned topic on /ot/ which the mods claimed is because too many anons replied to the robots who raided the thread (which was the exact opposite of the truth since everyone ignored the maleposters in the latest thread, it was just too much work to moderate it & ban them and much easier to bend to what the men demanded by force), and the GC thread is next to be shut down for the same reason. this isn't lolcow anymore. mods have totally kowtowed to cows & men/transpeople who set out to silence women and that's the exact opposite of what lolcow is supposed to be. it's such a disappointment - this is no longer a safe place for women to talk about silly drama OR the serious stuff that affects us in our daily lives.
personally i have no reason to post here anymore. what was good about this site has now gone to shit. i used to love lolcow, but this isn't the only imageboard with a female userbase, so this is goodbye for me. i hope the new admin has fun with her new site where cow sympathizers, whiteknights, dudes, and trannies reign supreme. best of luck to her.
Not going to bother reading the rest of your rambling but>they did
I didn't know until just now kek I fucking love the new admin already. It's been so long since we've had someone who actually takes out the trash on this site.
The redtext is not a good reflection of the ban reason but it has more to do with your post history on that topic.>>8267
I have the opinion that if a thread is on autosage, anons should work to improve it to get it off of autosage. Moo anons were able to do it, other threads have also been through a similar process from what I've seen. The anisa thread never saw improvement and no attempts for improvement were ever made.
I'm not the old admin and the locking of man hate wasn't under my direction but here is my opinion on it. If you compare the GC thread to manhate you will realize the GC thread doesn't struggle with constant raids and the general discussion and flow of that thread is entirely different. I don't plan on making a final decision on manhate until we have a townhall.
For 100% transparency the current moderation team consists of 5 people, 4 mods and only myself. The implication that there is not only a male mod, but that he is specifically a donor for anisa is ridiculous and quite amusing.>>8270
Thank you for that.>>8264
You can contest that at a townhall or provide good reasoning for it to come back here.

>>8275>The redtext is not a good reflection of the ban reason but it has more to do with your post history on that topic.
nta that did the original post that got red-texted in pic related or this post, but can mods ever actually answer a question or be helpful in any way? This shit is so frustrating. At least 50% red texts don't make any sense to the userbase who can't see what info you see and need more context. How are we supposed to follow your rules if you can't even explain or justify your application of them?
You guys act like every question of red text or ban is combative but we're just trying to understand the logic when it doesn't align with the posted rules. Just give more context on red-texts or bans so the users can understand what the actual offense was and how not to do it in the future. Cause right now it just looks like it's whatever mod's emotion is that day.
Same with "no contribution" flags in /pt/. Give a clear definition of what YOU define as "contribution", or elaborate more when you flag things. Or better yet, stop flagging users trying to participate in the discussion when you don't even give the option to sage.
Kinda regretting not applying for a mod position tbh because these issues are so easily fixed by providing your users with more clarity. Leaving things this undefined and open to interpretation just makes it that much easier for mini-moders to project their own definitions and set of the rules and sperg on everyone who doesn't align with how THEY think a site should work. I think that would help with a lot of the in-fighting as well, and probably the excess of unnecessary reported posts I assume you guys get.
Alright, sorry for the sperging. Hope you take some of this into consideration though.
"your post history etc"
Try again without the cryptic crossword? >>8280
I am the anon they're replying to and have no idea what they mean either. Presumably it has to do with bitching about redtexting and bans in the past (hopefully not including all the bans I cop by proxy for using a vpn)
You raise a good point about the clarity issue; perhaps FHs could drop a post explaining what the issue is on occasion.
Phew! I can cancel that early onset dementia test.
At least one out of the five I noticed gone was redtexted for a day or so before it was deleted. And they were comments that did not need to be deleted like pics of kids or gore.>>8296
Maybe post the links here so mods can connect the dots easier?
Dogfucker chan ban evaded about 3 times in shay thread to continue sperging so their posts were deleted.>>8294>>8297>>8280
It's all being taken into consideration. There will be rule changes to make moderation consistent.

This isn't so much a complaint rather than a question. I noticed this anon was banned from the Kelly thread, I understand if the ban was for general derailing seeing as she was kinda going off topic to defend that stalker fan but the (back to tumblr) modding makes it seem like we have some sort of political stance now?
I've been active for the last four years and originally from /cgl/ (which I kinda assume most anons originate from but maybe not anymore) and as far as I remember we always had diverse political opnions. I understand the gender critical thread attracts a large demographic here now and I even enjoy lurking the thread but are we really required to adhere to radfem ideology? because every day I see anons sperging about troons/men in threads that have nothing to do with the subject, and if mods are backing that stance now, you can't realistically expect the entire userbase to be exclusively terfs? I always appreciated lolcow's apolitical environment but it seems like the entire site is leaning towards a specific ideology now.
Clarification would be appreciated.
You're right, probably spending too much time in /ot/ >>8312
good to hear
It pops up now and then but it's rarely a huge deal, it's usually just something like:>shereally anon?
It's still annoying, but nothing compared to the spergout portrayed in >>8305
. Anons just need to stop being the pronoun police and let farmers refer to cows however they want. A stupid gossip site is not the place to take a stand for shitty identity politics anyway. >>8275
Hey new admin, thank you for stepping up and taking on the manure farm that lolcow has become. As I can never really make townhalls, hoping I can bring something up here to go into consideration.
In the past, it seems some topics in /ot/ were shut down or rerouted to other threads for what I saw as really inane reasoning. Transpassing and drag queen(?) threads were closed and forced to merge discussion with the radfem thread at the time (which eventually became gender critical). Even a thread talking about all-female societies was either funneled into man-hate or the radfem threads, which didn't coincide at all with the discussions going on at the time.
I just think if the things being talked about aren't getting out of hand one way or another, why not allow separate discussions of these topics? While there is some crossover of, say, radfem and gender critical beliefs, there are also some differences that would make separate topics viable (and preferable) for some farmers.
File: 1548620198458.jpg (54.95 KB, 400x300, 1434774010817.jpg)
Maybe not all of them, but I think some of them could branch off if given the chance. It was really annoying when that happened initially because all the separate discussions were forced into one thread, and it's honestly difficult to have conversations on multiple topics within one thread. It makes GC really clunky sometimes.
I also kind of miss radfem talk that isn't about girldicks and shit.

g'bless you mod, that's nice to hear
I really do think it could save everyone (users and mods) a lot of frustration and confusion at the end of the day
Why was >>>/snow/772701
redtexted for derailing? It was more informative than a derail and it was directly relevant to the thread so I guess I'm just confused on what exactly is considered derailing at this point. Does it just have to be reported and it's automatically redtexted or was there more behind it?

Apologies, as a disclaimer new farmhands were added today. The ban was lifted.
