I kinda feel like the discord should just be nuked and never brought back at all. Have tried stimulating discussion in it and get barely any replies. I think new admin should just focus on rebuilding the site instead since it seems a discord server is going to be the least of her worries.
Good luck to new admin in working on the site. It's going to take a lot to save it. Probably won't go back to how it used to be but any improvement is better than none!

Wow, glad to see an update about the situation of lolcow and nice to see that change is going to happen. I hope new admin-sama brings at least a bit of the old lolcow feeling back and mmmmaybe update the banner more often because it was something that kind of varnished this year.
Wish the new team good luck and much success with everything (specially with the server issue.)

Really pleased with the news! Congratulations new admin!>>7955
I had the same experience on the Discord server & Was disappointed. Thirded*

And thank you new admin-sama!
We're planning on remaking the discord server. The verification system was removed due to users voting against verification, but we'll try to work out a new solution.>>7972>>7973>>7985
Yes, we still use the patreon and it's connected to the lolcow paypal address which the server bill is withdrawn from. The new server will be more expensive and
needs more space than we had before (the outages and multiple comment issues stemmed from having no disk space available to properly run posting features and sometimes caused problems displaying large threads such as TND and celebcows), so we will need the funds to run things smoothly. Please suggest perks you'd like to see for lolcow and discord.
I would love to be able to pin threads on the website!
Just curious as idk how these things work… but, do low-quality, low-content posts & threads essentially waste server space and money?
We've pinned threads when there was some really
good drama going on (for example, Kiki's outing thread), but is this what you mean or are you asking about a customizable feature that would let you choose the threads you'd like to follow?
As for your second question, technically yes, but on a much lesser scale since they're also not very well-visited and don't take up a lot of bandwidth for that reason. If that were an issue, we'd simply prune ancient bad threads. The threads themselves don't take up that much space, the issue is many users viewing and interacting.
Apologies for the poor wording; I meant I would like to be able to choose threads to follow, yes.
Thanks for the lesson in bandwidth as well! >>8001
Was just about to ask what the link is. Thanks!

Late to the party but yay! Welcome new admin-sama!

Pretty optimistic with the announcement. Best of luck, new admin!

Welcome new admin-sama! Hope your rule restores order and lengthy milk for all farmers! Cheers!!!
Also, question: if we’re a longtime farmer who wants to apply as a farmhand/mod but changed devices/ips/cities recently, how do we prove we’re a longtime farmer? Can we link one of our old posts (that we made on our old device) in the application (so you can use that post to see all the posts we made with our old device/ip)?
I recently changed iPhones, after mine broke, and had been posting for years under the old phone (didn’t use vpns). Just worried that if I apply now, I’ll be judged based only on the posts I’ve made on my new phone (less than a month) and my years of posts won’t be factored in. Wanted to apply all month but was worried about that.
After seeing some of the replies here I wanted to clear a few things up. New admin hasn't officially joined yet but we are currently working together with the current team on transitioning things smoothly. >>8030
There are currently no new mods and any new mods are up to the new admin as stated above. >>8033
It's totally possible to compare if you would like but it's more likely that new admin will just rely on your answers more.
If you applied expect to get an email by the end of January for an interview. If you don't receive one then it's likely your application has been denied.
Any anons interested are encouraged to apply as long as the form is open.
I hope everyone is enjoying the new year!
Good luck Admin. You've got a lot of cleaning up to do.
And I mean this in the most loving way possible.

Welcome! Wishing you the best of luck and fortitude in running our beloved shit-talk site!!
Will there be any major changes in the layout and function of the site itself? I find it cumbersome to navigate. A way to follow/pin threads would be awesome.
Thank you for taking over admin-sama <3
Hello new admin! Good luck with everything, I’m sure you’ll do great!!
I do have one question, are you going to implement any really big changes right off the bat? Specifically to the global rules.
As far as technical changes go, it will take a while but it's a work in process. Please let me know about any other features you're hoping for.>>8221
Yeah there will be a few major changes like that, the rules may take a bit longer to implement though since re-writing rules isn't easy. To be completely honest I do plan on adding new boards to the site (no more than two) to make threads a bit more organized but I do want user feedback about it.
I know changes like this are very sudden but I feel like we've all been waiting far too long for change to happen.

>I do plan on adding new boards to the site
Boards like we used to have for a while? (I don't remember the names but we had some boards until everything returned to it's current form)
Also wondering if there are any plans for a new hellweek? I know this has been asked a lot but we really, really need it.
And maybe make return of banners? It's been a long time since the last proper update.
Other than that, I wish you and the team lots of luck and a lot of energy for the upcoming time because there is sure a lot of work to do, but I feel really optimistic about you guys!
There will be no return of oldboards. Hellweek will be planned asap. I will also schedule a townhall soon.
I think I can update the banners today!

Thanks for reversing my unsubstantiated ban!
Holy shit, this is such great news. tbh I could use a hellweek myself because I'm sure I've posted some sloppy shit lately.
I want to believe but hellweek is already a year and a half late, and it really shows. Please save us from ourselves, admin.>>8285
Most threads are a mess now. Seriously.
Thanks Admin sama for the quick replies on these threads.
As for the Shay thread, will there be a farmhand attentive to the thread, in the event (before) an auto sage happens?
Hi new admin,
What are your plans for maintaining/improving the culture of the website? imo that's by far the most important job of anybody running a community.

Thank you for getting new banners into the mix!
The TND banner is especially timely.
I was wondering the same thing, I wanted to all the past few months but didn’t have time until recently to do it, and now applications are closed. They probably will sometime in the future but I’m not sure about when or how soon.
Hope we can though!
