Hellweek will begin April 15th to April 22nd. Posts made during this week will receive extra scrutiny and moderation will increase. However, this is not applicable to posts before or after hellweek. Boards unrelated to drama will not be participating so there's no need to worry about moderation changes there.
Examples of trends and behaviors to be targeted:
∙ Spamming low effort images
∙ Spamming social media statuses with no context
∙ Blogging and inserting your personal life into the discussion
∙ Derailing threads to uphold your politics or personal beliefs
∙ Unwarranted/emotional overreactions
∙ asking to be spoonfed
∙ extreme and abnormal nitpicking
∙ posting in a way that indicates you're new to lolcow.farm
All rules listed on https://lolcow.farm/rules
still apply, but are not the primary focus. The goal is to purge as many newfags as possible while improving the overall posting quality.
Ban lengths for the listed behaviors may not exceed 1 week. Ban lengths for everything else may not exceed 4 days.
Please post any questions, suggestions, or concerns in this thread. General complaints stay in the general complaints thread.
It really depends on the quality of the post, I'm more concerned with anons minimodding and screeching "sage" in every thread. >>9836
One day away now. The twitter and instagram types can can either integrate or leave with a ban.
I also wish this didn't have to be said but standard bans are based off of rule violations (duh). Whether or not you love or hate staff doesn't factor into the ban or the length, that would be biased
A good way to appeal a ban would be to acknowledge an offense, or dispute it. A bad way to a appeal a ban would be to reference how much you've defended the moderation team as if it's relevant to the ban. I hope that shit stops and I don't want to see it occur during hellweek.
Yes, please, thank you, the minimodding is out of control lately!
Also pronoun policing one way or the other.

I'm guessing this is because of hellweek, but everything on PT is super zoomed in.

Ok so not just me seems like its all the boards
This just happened to me- it's weird.
Also I'm super new to doing discord- is that still a thing for here or did I miss something in my wandering around the abyss ?
It should be fixed now. Sorry about that. >>9861
It's still around but the invite was killed because of a raid threat, I'll add a new one to the index.

Text is back to normal, but I'm getting this at the top of my screen. Am I the only one?

I just checked every other theme and they all have the vertical line of images, except strangely Wasabi which made it horizontal.

Excuse me what the fuck is this garbage and who’s retarded idea was this. Where on mobile is there an option to change the theme. I hardly post on here and just want to read what the fuck
File: 1555434833626.jpg (36.95 KB, 640x427, D3C1aKjXgAAqBzn.jpg)
this is how you all look complaining about a joke theme that will be gone on monday
Idk I like the theme, I think it's funny. It's a little distracting on mobile. I think we should have more special, temporary themes.
Also, that's how incognito works. Ofc it won't keep your changes… come on anon.
Nothing is broken anymore, floaties are working the way they should. If you don't want the floaties you can adblock the image URLhttps://i.imgur.com/rRQsLaR.png
They'll be removed out of the code next week.

More clarification. adblock > dashboard > filters
Samefag but why the fuck should I have to Adblock the floaties to use this website when you can just take them out of the code? The username shouldn’t have to work around the website, that’s not how this works.
They serve no purpose, it just makes using the website more annoying

>BEGONE FLOTS SCREEEEEEEEEEE
You've never been new here Raven, but you sure act like it. >>9921>>9917
Floaties were removed a few hours ago.
ok I'm rubbing my hands with glee at that first reply
guys calm down, as well as the adblock method spelled out here you can use a css customiser extension like stylebot, click on a floater and choose visibility > hide. bam.
you were advised to use the catalog and/or make a thread but vendetta posting is a no-no isn't it dianon?. Before you keep demanding threads on people you're jealous of maybe try to be less visibly vitriolic. >>9922
I'm down for this, imagine being so harrassed by a fatgoff so relentlessly you willingly give up hours and hours precious free time just to stop the sperging.
Tinfoil: Raven was playing both sides, bringing up Emily and responding "take this to the Emily Boo thread" in order to get farmers to talk about her.
I guess we'll find out when Admin tags her posts. I'm also interested to see how many of the posts about Adora were Raven's.
Did you see the more recent back and forth, "Take this to the Emily Boo thread" vs "There is no Emily Boo thread"? I think she was playing both sides in that, too. All of the regulars know there has never been an Emily Boo thread. I posted >>>/snow/796830
I don't see anyone suggesting she make a thread.

>Boards unrelated to drama will not be participating so there's no need to worry about moderation changes there
As someone who almost never bothers to go to /pt/….do you mean /pt/ and /snow/ by this? Clarification on this would be more helpful than the list of targeted behaviors.
>Examples of trends and behaviors to be targeted
This list is just….the rules? I don't really understand the concept of this – so mods are just actually going to enforce rules for a week? But only on some boards? Again, maybe because I frequent the other boards mostly and rarely /pt/ but I feel like I haven't really seen these particular behaviors in excess lately. Usually just a few random newfags here or there that can be easily corrected.
I was really hoping you'd be targeting the people that completely sperg out over sage and try and mini-mod every single comment with their own interpretation of the rules or start infighting. That's the cancerous behavior I've been seeing worsen in the past year, but maybe the updated rules are expected to take care of that? Idk, I guess I imagined Hellweek to be torches and pitchforks, this seems more like just expecting people to follow directions
>>9982>I was really hoping you'd be targeting the people that completely sperg out over sage and try and mini-mod every single comment with their own interpretation of the rules or start infighting.
Yes, I addressed this in another post. >>9840>>9948
Yeah those anons have been dealt with. The point of hellweek is to cut down on stuff like that.

You're totally right, sorry senpai. I saw the whining about sage and immediately just scrolled past it to read the rest of the thread like I usually do. Godspeed.>>9992
Good way of expanding on the concept, thanks anon!>>9993
For what it's worth, this is the kind of unnecessary in-fighting starting I was referring to, thanks for the example anon! Some of us just remember the days before sage was implemented and threads were actually about the cows themselves and not toddlers fighting over who can call each other an autist the loudest.
It's /meta/. I wouldn't reply in this manner in a thread, its derailing.
But idk, just explore the board a bit? I don't use /ot/ but I know where it is and what's in it. Admin's statement about where it would apply and what to was pretty clear.
Why no response to >>>/pt/654622
for continuing to engage with bait 12 hours after mods had addressed it?
>>10002>It's /meta/. I wouldn't reply in this manner in a thread, its derailing
So derailing with your own opinion is acceptable behavior because it's /meta/, but asking a perfectly reasonable question directed at mods….is unacceptable behavior on /meta/? I don't think you understand how any of this works. Do you wait by the Customer Service desk at Walmart to yell at customers who try to speak to employees in your free time too?>It's the Walmart returns line. I wouldn't scream at a stranger in another aisle in this manner, it's harassment
honestly though, this is literally the exact
behavior I was talking about, almost comically so>try and mini-mod every single comment with their own interpretation of the rules or start infighting
vegas residents don't have sales
tax. every US resident has to pay income taxes.
I talk about moving Moomoos thread full of nitpicking and sperging and the first thing you do is start another tax fight in another thread.
Canadianfag here i had no fucking clue there was state AND federal income tax so yah my bad. But you completely missed my point further proving the exact behaviour thats been going on in the momokun thread for 3 months.
"Stop fucking talking about taxes stop sperging about her cats reeee" meanwhile every second day the same topics come up over and over again. Its filled with mini mods and derailers with some ugly badly photoshopped pictures in between.
You could have googled before assuming that, though? And where's the tax fight? Correcting you isn't fighting.
I think the staff has been pretty good at staying on top of the issues in Moo's thread. People have been getting banned for legit nitpicking which is a huge difference from before the new admin came on board.
I honestly think that autosage and moving threads to /snow/ solves nothing. It's a lazy punishment when the moderation doesn't know how to handle undesirable behavior. We're not as understaffed as we were in January so there's no reason to move the moo thread.
All threads have nitpicking. The nitpicking I want to curb has to be extreme or repetitive. The moo thread has been pretty good about it ever since I implemented the fat ban.
I think wanting to curb on a legitimate conversation about taxes is unfair. Speculation can be fun and it can have legitimate reasoning behind it. Tinfoiling becomes tinfoiling when it reaches the verge of fanfiction.
Speculation has been an effective tool in the onision, shay, and TND threads; and I'm only referencing instances from the past year.
If you think there is a problem with a few posts, report them.
