I thought it would be nice to have a thread for oldfags to reminisce about the good ol' days since the culture here has changed so much. Here's to the days before the 2020 lockdowns began and the internet went to shit. Please share any and every memory you have, the good and bad, it doesn't matter.

Discussion of the history of the boards and cow culture is recommended as well since a lot of the newfags don't seem to know or understand how lolcow.farm came to be.

For newfags: you are welcome to participate in the thread but please do not infight and derail with oldfags. We already have enough fighting and negativity as it is, so can we at least for once, try to get along with each other?

Some examples of stuff we can talk about:

>favorite board drama/reveals/confessions

>favorite posters (most likely that you miss since a lot of people are gone)
>memorable posts
>favorite cow/milk eras
>photos and videos you've saved from the past
>things you miss about old lolcow versus today

…just any and everything that you want to share, even if it's stupid it doesn't matter. We can even talk about /cgl/, maxfag, and staminarose since those sites all basically led to lolcow.farm being born and don't get discussed much. I doubt this thread will get much traction anyway since so many older users are gone but for those who still come here, please post!

Have fun.

maybe this thread could be pinned somewhere like /meta/? idk i am afraid it will get buried and i want to make sure everyone gets a chance to post and share equally.

It was a lot saltier then but maybe I just thought so because when I first found this site I was a sensitive 19 year old PULL user, I never liked troons so the talking shit about troons didn’t bother me but the manhating kinda caught me off guard. I’ve just never seen it so unfiltered and without the “ackshually not all men!” replies so it was weird to me. Im glad the site is still like that for a short while, there were some anons who would ask you to chill out on speeding about men or troons, but this is the only site where you can do it without worrying about being doxxed or threatened. When I found this site the pink pill and gender critical threads were in /ot/ it kinda made me feel like I just like uncovered a whole bunch of secrets, I feel regarded saying this but I was mostly oblivious to men and their atrocities. I was sort of a handmaiden in those days and this site opened my eyes.
So I might not be an actual old fag, I found this site in 2019, but a lot has still changed. Farmers threw the n word with the er at the end around, no drawing board or movie nights then, I was on the discord. Some users recommended shota mangas. There was the girl who kept talking about how she liked. Nazis on there. I think there were more edgy users or they matured a bit. I’ve said it before but I get the feeling custardloaf and shoeonhead types hang out on here. It’s weird because we diss pickmes so much but they definitely sit on here a lot, they let their retardation spill out.
It’s gotten a lot more cozy feeling, nona, nonny and anon nicknames are used more often. The drawing room and movie nights feel so chill, even the banners are cutesier, and someone was complaining about it the other day but they said they’ve noticed more tumblry posts and it makes sense. I can’t put my finger on it, it’s just theater kid humoresque quips in posts. “Bloop” energy.

No. 1817956

I've been a lurker since 2015, but I don't have any good memories from back then. Seriously I can't even think of one, if anything I'm a super oldfag because before lolcow I was on /cgl/ for literal years as well and I don't remember that fondly either. I lost too much time on this shit. Imageboards fucked up my self esteem and at least nowadays people seem kinder on here.

No. 1817958

Samefag and fuck the TikTok anons. They don’t integrate well and they talk like faggots on Stan Twitter, they are also another type of identifiable poster. They’re always talking about celebrities and being a divine feminine., dark feminine energy, adriana Lima, Doja cat, they looksperg, femcels, [insertwordhere]core, they post their faces on here or on TikTok drawing attention not only to themselves but to this site, these users easily piss me off the most besides obviously baiting moids. This wasn’t a thing back in 2019, or it just wasn’t a big thing anyways

No. 1817965

Used to not post at all on here for years but then when I started doing it I became bitter and resentful. Then nonnies became nice and chill and now I'm nice and chill too. Time is an illusion and nostalgia for something like this website is worthless to me. What I found funny back when I was 18, aka berating cows and image board humor, is just not what I want anymore. People grow and become different. That's just one of the many reasons why I think oldfags changed or went away.

No. 1817967

I used to post here around 2016-2018 but then I had a mental breakdown and quit imageboards and social media for 4 years. came back to this cesspool last year, still dont do social media, it's an ok balance but I can feel the toxicity permeating my psyche slowly. at least I dont get social media brainrot from not looking like a certain way anymore.

No. 1817968

I still like the salt in some threads specially here in /ot/, but meh. The other boards are boring shit with zero milk basically. Too much infighting and baiting and trolling.

>I never liked troons so the talking shit about troons didn’t bother me but the manhating kinda caught me off guard.
for me its the other way around. I had no problem saying the most vile shit about men but for some reason troonphobia made me uncomfortable
i hate people who brags about being farmers on social media. I guess it makes them feel edgy and taboo. I used to lurk on lolcow, PULL and e-celeb snark tumblr blogs when i was underaged but it wasn't something I discussed with other people. Many of my friends used 4chan which I only found out years later lol. It's not that we where ashamed of using these sites it's just that edgy gossip sites and imageboards aren't brag worthy. No one is going to think you are more interesting or edgy if you are a farmer.
Modern internet is also stupid and attentionwhoring. What compels someone to attach their face to every statement they make? Specially now where your boss and social group will comb trough your social media. People who read trashy gossip magazines in the 00-10s never attentionwhored like this.
Its not a lolcow specific issue but I miss the stupid "kawaii motherfucker" 2013 internet humor. It was stupid but it was self aware without being obnoxious. Internet humor got really shitty when kpop and drag became mainstream.
Now you either need to take an ironic distance to everything or take everything super seriously. So you are left with people who are desperately trying to appear smug/sassy and celebrity worshippers. And then we have people who think everything is problematic or an personal attack.
Weeb spaces have just become constant coomer jokes. The coom jokes where always there but there used to be the occasional desu joke or burando joke. I know its a dumb thing to feel nostalgia over but i just wanna laugh at weebs, otaku culture and jfashion for being cringey without having to use the word asianfishing.
>I'm just not into cows anymore.
Same. I don't know if i just outgrew cows or something in internet culture changed that made cows less interesting.

I´m not really an old fag but around since before 2020. I just noticed by reading old threads that back then the nonnys here where so mean to each other. They would react so hostile towards each other, glad it changed for the better.

No. 1818006

I joined here shortly before Venus escaped Margo and I remember following the (now new) Margo thread voraciously, as I had a similar experience to Venus with being shopped around the world by an insane mother. I remember how proud nonnas were of her and how much hope they had for her future, cue the "Good luck Venus" banner. Seeing the Venus thread come back and the state that she's in now saddens me greatly, Margo destroyed her life. Anyway the "I'm going into the river" saga was one of the most insane and hilarious things I had ever seen. I don't browse cows anymore but I like that lolcow is still standing and as female-ran, GC and misandrist as always. This site peaked me and woke me up to many moid atrocities also. Still crazy to think the first admin who created all of this was a moid.

No. 1818013

Actually it's really bleak how half of the old cows devolved. Back when we'd joke about venus and the whole mr.yan saga or how much we had to coddle pt in her comments or jill being hypocritical about lace, would you have thought back then that they'd end up like they are today? I was always interested in milk due to having a glance at how "outlier" people live their lifes but I still wished for them to succeed and get better in the end.

It's also interesting that weeb cows mostly ended up severely mentally ill or into sex work, while the cows like ally or asha completely fizzled into normalcy.

No. 1818024

I think there was a fundamental shift (for the worse) once onlyfans became something mainstream. Momo for instance is the most egregious example, what with being proud that she "didn't do porn". Now literally everyone is doing it. Cows have become darker in my opinion due to the added fact that now almost all of them degrade themselves sexually on camera for moids. With Venus it was very egregious, when she launched her onlyfans it was surely the first sign that things were going down the shitter for her. I think also the fact that most big cows are also millionnaires having their public desplays of mental illness being rewarded with stupid money makes it hard to have the same low-key fondness for them and desire for their wellbeing like people had for PT.

No. 1818038

I find it kind of interesting how much /w/ dried up, like lc started with /cgl/ migrants when drama posting would result in bans, spoony fucking everywhere, so much drama in the lolita fashion community, and now it’s all dead. Being a weeaboo or gamer and buying weird polyester clothes made in china is just another normalfag thing

No. 1818079

It was recent, but for some reason the creation of /w/ was the first that came to mind. I remember being so annoyed because I felt the board was unnecessary (still kinda do) and all the links were breaking.

This isn't a specific event but more of a general feel: I do miss this site being more focused around the cow boards and the off topic boards just playing the backseat. I don't use /snow/ and the likes anymore but it feels like off topic boards are now becoming a main part of the site and I don't think that's a good thing.

No. 1818086

that surprises me too considering that PULL got nuked and it used to be full of weebs. What happened to the weeby cows back then?!

No. 1818108

I miss the cows being funny but I don't miss the retardation and hostility of the anons or the powertripping farmhands. It's a weird trade off now but I suppose I'll take it
I also miss how easy it was to find cows, despite being easier to before to track and document them on paper you have to sign up for a lot of sites or some cows just go on private unless you follow them with an account. Takes the fun out of observing

No. 1818141

>it feels like off topic boards are now becoming a main part of the site
yeah i have noticed this too, my guess is twitter/tiktok immigrants wanting to use image boards but no wanting to go to sites like 4chan?

You have several anons itt saying they simply grew out of cows and I feel the same way. If anything, the smaller cow threads are where the tiktok/twitter newfags gather in the first place. Which is no surprise, since this is how most people find this website, googling cows or being linked to cow threads.

No. 1818168

See that's why I'm not opposed to the overt Tumblr nonnies, it's like they never left. I know we always hated Tumblr here but it's more likely that they just became more comfortable after moids calling everyone "tumblrinas" left.

Another thing I noticed though is that we now have too much fandom stuff. I didn't care at first but now it's really everywhere kek, good for them I guess. I'm personally not a fandom person, too autistic for my tastes, sorry. At least we don't allow kpop kek

No. 1818185

The internet itself has changed, people are more aware of mental illness and for good measure. Some cows deserve healing, some are too terrible and still deserve to be mocked. It depends on the current anons of those cow threads. A lot more innocuous things get a pass. Threads have their own micro ecosystem. Most horrorcows are too horrible to thrive here so they get discussed on the other farm.

No. 1818188

Wow Tumblrina hardly means anything anymore. I’ll never forget the whole 4chan vs. tumblr thing kek too bad both sites are shells of their former selves now. I genuinely wonder where things are gonna go next and how long LC will survive (if it isn’t dying already). The “cows” are so boring now and it’s incredible that threads on /pt/ are still even alive.

Any “humor” past 2020 shouldn’t be welcomed here. Begone.

No. 1818203

Adding to this, a lot of farmers realized they have cow tendencies as well. Anons used to be way more paranoid of becoming cows, it was a huge deal. Once everyone started opening up about their issues, things became less mean. Now we know half the userbase are autistic neets with severe trauma or bpd and it makes so much sense. Wanting to be mean on purpose back then like everyone else was a way to mask it I guess. I myself still gravitate to pixielocks because she reminds me of myself, I know I'm not as bad now, but I know plenty of anons gravitate towards cows that are similar to their own situations.

Unrelated but today I had a dream that farmhands banned me because I said "Imagine not having a job" and the red text was like "but you have no job you autistic NEET bitch" kek. I will always love creative redtexts.

No. 1818277

I have been here since day one and I am glad this site turned more radfem leaning. (anons might attack me for that but trust me, way back before when nonnas would post about their scrote mentally abusing them, usually the advice would be "have you tried communicating with him" and would generally welcome moids in their threads)

I miss discussing random internet lolcows that were not really well known but were popular and lulzy in their respective spaces back in 2014-2015. E.g. that tumblr account that larped as an edgy japanese pretty boy who hated all white people (ihatewhitepeople was their nickname iirc) but then had a falling out with another melodramatic cow who wanted to date "him" and then it turned out it was a larper all along who used pics of some taiwanese model. It was pretty fun witnessing drama in real time.
I am older now and following cows does not amuse me like it used to. I have no idea about streamers, newer youtubers, Onlyfans cows etc. I feel people are also much more careful about their image so there is nothing much to discuss.

It's honestly crazy how milk standards have changed. A few years ago bad Photoshop and cosplay was considered milk and enough to warrant a thread but now that's tame. At the same time, cows were better a few years ago. What milky cows do we have now? Shayna? That could be a consequence of this site becoming less cow focused.

No. 1819373

I miss cosplay drama so much, anons autistically ripping apart a bitchy dunning-kruger cosplayer's work is like drinking fine wine. It's both satisfying and educational, I learned by taking notes from people doing it. It was so much more interesting and above all intelligent to read anons raging about Momokun's awful costume construction than gawking at her vulva shape or calling her fat again and again like people don't have eyes on them. Yeah she said she's "above porn" which is why it's ironic she's doing it now but that was like 6 years ago, the horse is already buried.

I feel like this happened to a lot of threads about cows in the creative field, it went from anons pointing out all the incompetency and reasonable criticism into just sperging about the cow's looks, ideologies and personal feelings because the userbase went from a nerdy women into radblr refugees and later on tiktok zoomers who lack the attentiveness and passion for developing an actual skill. Most threads are now just racebait, tranny sperging and "look at that bitch eating crackers" style nitpicking.

But to reminiscence a bit, I think one of my most satisfying lolcow moments were when Swimsuitsuccubus and her fake girlfriend were outed for faking their lesbian relationship for clout (I think either one of them was dating a moid at the same time?) and having been vendettaposting in Momokun's thread. I called it years before the truth was leaked because they were never the least bit subtle about it.

I come from /cgl/ and I once also enjoyed cosplay drama but honestly I just grew up and didn't care anymore. Cosplay is just a bunch of weirdos dressed like shit. All of them. Nothing is special anymore. Even all lolita fashion feels weird to me now that I don't care about jfash, it feels strange when I look at it. People in general on the internet either do shit for clout or just cosplay for fun. I think it just became less niche and now everyone is doing it terribly, that's why it's not a bigger deal as it was back then. Both hobbies also got infested with SJWs. I also think it takes more than having a bad cosplay to count as milky now, it also has to do with people's narcissistic personality or whatever.

No. 1819524

I think cows are still out there but they get outed inside their own niche group and get called out or cancelled. Inside discord servers, twitter, or telegram. Then they either double down or disappear. It's also increasingly hard to post anything new over here because all new threads are shit threads or don't have enough out there milk despite cows not necessarily having to be terrible people to be cows. KF has more extreme cows but also allows dumb posts about randos inside specific threads. The internet in general just changed imo. This place was bound to change.

No. 1819540

There’s a weird trend of newfag twitter types complaining about the cow boards and that they should go away kek. I’ve seen these posts in /meta/ and floating around /ot/. They’re bringing the delusional incwusiwity bullshit from social media. I also notice in cow threads that some posters get dogpiled for calling a woman ugly or old for not being ultra supportive of all women. I don’t like how that shit is permeating lolcow.

No. 1819543

I guess I don't look back at the past as fondly as others do because I've always cared more about the classic /cgl/ cows (Venus, Dakota, Pixie) and they had their own fame and special milk days but nowadays they're just sad, empty threads full of nitpicks. When the milk started drying up I switched boards and now I'm here, I like the consoom thread for example, it gives me the lolcow fix that I've been addicted to since I first came here. But it's not the same. I'm also not a teen anymore, I don't care about people photoshoping their face or dressing cringe. I really try not to look at ethots in my daily life so why would I care about their milk. Anorexic cows are just depressing. It's all just shit. Gossip is boring to me now.

Nah I'm glad we're at least a little nicer about women's appearance here, all that old nitpicking was definitely half the scrotes we let run free, and half 16 year old girls with seething insecurities. It really grinds away at your confidence to see totally normal looking women get nitpicked for every aspect of their appearance apparently being hideously ugly, I've always ignored or skimmed those kinds of threads just because how bad it makes me see myself. That's probably just me, but I've always preferred the cows who do actually milky shit and bring it upon themselves with the way they act.

No. 1819630

Is it a getting older thing no longer being interested in cows? Or lolcow and gossip overdose from coming here for years and years? Or have cows themselves and the concept of milk changed, due to or alongside the way that the internet has changed in the last 15 years?

No. 1819636

Cows and milk have changed. If tiktok was about when I was a teenager anyone doing the dances and skits would have been bullied relentlessly and mocked for attention seeking. Now there's a generation that aspires to be as obnoxious as possible. There's also the new idea that instead of everyone is beautiful, plastic surgery is ethically correct and it's a human right to be sexy.

No. 1819640

Personally, i still have an interest in cows but they need to be a special kind of outlandish to catch my interest. Most of the cows on this site are incredibly boring imo. I remember being a shayna fag but she bores the hell out of me right now, which tbh is probably a good thing because it means she's enjoying life, even if she is still selling her coochie. I wish i could tolerate kiwifarms but the edgy speak and power leveling throws me off from going there, despite them having infinitely better milk. So i find myself just settling for watching the odd cow video on youtube to get my fix.

>I also think it takes more than having a bad cosplay to count as milky now, it also has to do with people's narcissistic personality or whatever.
That's how it always was, just making bad or mediocre costumes was never interesting or "milky" and still isn't. All the cosplay cows were completely blind to their own skill level and considered themselves to be more apt than they actually were, which reflected in their personality. Momokun's initial appeal was her aloof personality and cosplays that were horribly constructed yet she bitched about not winning contests to the point she had a vendetta against one of the judges.

KF threads are literally unreadable due to the amount of blogposting going on in there. You can tell 90% of the scrotes there never had fathers in their lives or any friends to talk to.

No. 1819660

Agree, I had horrible body dysmorphia due to being a /cgl/ regular in the early 2010's. Looking back I was super skinny yet I starved myself because people on imageboards were zooming into even smallest of skin folds calling them "fat rolls" and I internalized all of it. And not just the weight part, if you weren't a filtered photoshopped asian cosplayer level beauty you might as well go live under the bridge with the rest of your kind. I would brush them off as scrotes but you can see the remnants of that mindset in threads like Dakota's where they've been calling her fat for years and it's obviously coming from a place of jealousy and crab mentality. It's not milky and it directly contributes to unachievable female beauty standards, anons who want those times back are probably blind to the damage it caused them.

As retarded as stuff like HAES are it did have an impact on culture because back then, a woman being chubby or fat was equal to relentless nitpicking, as any oldfag obviously knows. Look at how many cows are obese now and still thriving, people are obviously more tolerant of a woman being fatter today. Which back then no one was. Of course that shit can affect you when you're a teenage girl insecure about your weight.

We weren't super close but we were mutuals and would message on Skype. I don't remember but I probably found her blog from her Professor Layton art since I was a huge fan and the fandom was kinda small. I liked her art a lot and would get so happy whenever she'd reblog and/or compliment my art. I would send her my art, we would talk about Layton fanfiction, our similar music taste, etc etc. One time she asked if I had a vomit fetish and I truthfully told her no. I asked why she wanted to know and she said she was just wondering because I was almost a mini-Nemu. I was honestly disappointed that I DIDN'T have a vomit fetish because she was my cool art senpai and I would have been so proud and honored to be called a mini-Nemu. Oh, one time I posted that I wanted to get better at figure drawing but couldn't always find good references. I think I said something along the lines of "I wish it were socially acceptable to ask your friends for nude photos for artistic reasons" and she replied saying she'd send me some. When I publicly responded she asked me to delete the post. I did and she sent me some nudes on Skype. They weren't meant to be sexy photos or anything I think she was just so kooky in the head that she didn't see a problem with sending a teenager nudes since it was for figure drawing. If these details seem familiar I posted it a few years ago in one of her original threads and someone screencapped it and added it to kf thread as well. Not too milky, sorry

So much shit happening, so many active threads with fat archives to read up. Luna Slater, Onion, Shayna, Venus all read from the beginning, every thread so fast-moving because there was constant drama and gossip; even though I can relate to anons saying they outgrew the cow culture - I kinda miss it. As an unemployed NEET student back then, this place was a perfect place on the Internet for me. I loved how angry and aggressive anons were, crass, self-confident, protective of this little girl-place. It was very refreshing to see women on the web from this other, less cutesy side.

I discovered lolcow and crystal cafe about at the same time in the summer of 2015. I wasn't interested in cow culture back then, and only browsed the off topic and hobby boards. I remember leaving because of the lack of a video game board, and going back to /v/ eventually. I was laso disappointed by the fact that all the topics were geared towards stereotypical female affairs (gossipic, beauty, "girls games", etc).
Now you have more videogames threads and not stereotypically feminine interests discussions in general, which is nice, imo.

I got into cow culture via scrote retards like ethan ralph and varg later on, but I must say that I feel like moidfarms and cancel culture killed cow culture. In fact, I feel like you can appreciate cows only when they haven't been discovered yet by farm websites, especially kf and their retarded obsession with doxxing. Now whenever a cow gets a thread here they go into hiding, because they're afraid of being harassed, stalked or even attacked irl. It happened to empath-chan for instance, even tho i can't say that i feel really bad for her. But still, even if she says heinous stuff, it's just an attention-seeking retard rambling retarded shit on the internet. And for the more light-hearted cows, they're afraid of losing their job or irl friends if they get a thread. I think cancel culture definitely played a role into the death of cow culture. Saying stupid shit online, when attached to your real identity, can hinder your life forever now, if not outright ruining it. So that's why doxxing is such a problem now. It's because normies are on the internet.

So yeah, now my favourite cows are found on random 4chan boards or discord servers, and even if I vicariously follow their antics for entertainment, I would NEVER create them a thread on a cow website. Even here.

Been here since 2015/2016. I think I found this place trying to find out more about the Onision/Billie drama going on at the time. My all time favorite threads and the only ones I go back and read sometimes were the ones about Nemu. Interesting art horrorcows seem to be surprisingly rare. I used the site most frequently around 2017 or so when the men hating threads were getting attention. It really opened my eyes and was the only place online I was seeing people talk about how horrible moids are. I honestly miss those threads and how /2X/ is just hidden and dead overall now. But I understand the decision based on how many loser moids would raid the board bc they were mad that there was any place at all that would talk badly about them. It's really a gross thing to realize. It's difficult to have one place open to criticizing and hating men but there's so many misogynistic forms of discussion allowed to exist on the internet (and many moids even profit from it). I stopped using this site around 2020-2021 when my life was at it's lowest and I was extremely ill, but came back around 2022 or so. I do wish it was more active overall. I find the normie man-loving, "my lovely nigel husband" posting on /ot/ to be weird sometimes bc that just seems like something youd go to regular social media for and not a miserable imageboard. The most horrifying thing ive seen on here so far is that one nonna that admitted to regularly eating her husband's ass in /ot/ I think. I wish to never see posts like that ever again.

Not an oldfag, but the normie nigel/pregnancy posts are both annoying and depressing to me.

Without neets and people with too much damn time of their hands, this site completely dies, especially the drama side and it's showing so much lately. There are still a lot of cows out there worth documenting, but some rando user with 2 kids and a career isn't going to go out of her way to contribute in any meaningful way, they would rather just tell everyone what to do, make fun of anons for not being boring and dull as their are. I also feel like the mods are too heavy on the shitposters.(off topic)

fucking same, I've brought this up before but I always get gaslit by mommyanons
>"what are you talking about there aren't that many pregnancy posts I've only ever seen like one like three months ago it doesn't happen"
>"but also even if they were common (they are not!!!! you are crazy) it would be a good thing because that mean anons are growing up and maturing!"
>"what do you expect, we're all hitting our 30s so babies come next"
Like what the actual fuck. I'm so happy to see you guys talking about this too because I really was starting to believe I was crazy. In particular, now I'm seeing a lot of posts complaining about having to do all the work for the baby/children and the house since they have a useless husband. The other day I saw an anon sad about getting pregnant with her husband's second child even though she resents him. Like, what the fuck. And the one I remember most that came up recently was an anon lamenting how her husband REFUSES TO TALK TO HIS CHILD AT ALL because "it can't understand or talk back" to him so "what's the point" and she was like "how can I convince him to do it because it's good for the baby's development??? help"
like idk I guess I just assumed that anons here would be…. smarter. It's actual torture to be subjected to this on my cozy imageboard now, this sort of shit belongs only coming out of the mouths of my dipshit coworkers.

I remember being the young one here and older anons definitely weren't like this. If you are like this, why are you in lolcow? It makes no sense. But whenever you question that you get attacked for not allowing married women and mothers to have hobbies. Many nowadays farmers completely deny the original roots and demographic of imageboards which is sad because damn, even in here you now get told off by normies, where else are you supposed to go…

You can't post anything in that thread without anons accusing you of hating on mothers.

I'm sorry but no, there are no actual normies in lolcow.

It's werid that anons here cry about "motherhood changing their whole personality" but the fact that they are still on this site proves the opposite lmao.

No. 1893404

This whole thing of "pregnant/married women shouldn't be on lolcow" is ironic because anons (and people in general) will also complain about women who's lives/personality revolve around their family and don't have any past times or interests outside of being a mom or wife kek.

I feel like we are going round in a circle with this because this is technically what we are complaining about, mothers whoses lives revolve around family and their husbands coming to lolcow and shove it down our throats and getting mad at people for criticising them for it. I just wish they would go elsewhere. I wish they would accept this site isn't for them anymore, some of us don't really care to be normal.

No. 1893413

But simply posting about it is not shoving it down your throat or forcing you to do anything. I really have yet to see any momfags try to force anyone here to have kids, and most of the posts I see about having children are in the appropriate /g/ thread. I feel like this whole thing is just an overblown issue, it's like some anons saw some posts about having kids and made up a boogeyman of anons out to make them get pregnant and be normal.

Annoying sure but as long as they're not derailing child free threads then there's nothing wrong with them. I don't think these things are sign of maturity or getting your shit together but they're part of the human experience for a lot of women and wanting to push them away because you want a chan that can only have neets and shchizos is nonsensical. I am saying this as a mentally ill neet. I know for a fact LC has had mothers and married women posting here for many years, I think it's just the amount of them that has changed over time

not true, there's always been some late 20s and early 30s here since the mid 2010s. There's probably more of them now because some of the old "young" farmers are still around

It's because the original userbase of LC is now mostly in their 30s and maybe even 40s. 2014 was ten years ago. Women don't go through a personality shift just because they get married and have children.

It sounds like some of you want LC to turn into a female version of wizardchan.

>haven't seen all the borderline tradwife shit
Where? Any actual tradwife shit posted gets rightly mocked and then banned. Being a housewife or SAHM does not automatically make someone a tradwife. Tradwives have a certain set of beliefs and behaviours that makes them stand out on LC. It shouldn't surprise anyone that former NEETs would prefer not to work even when children are involved.

Those true maladjusted women, unlike you, are actually suffering from the expectations of being born a woman. They are virgins in their 30s and arent interested in dating 3DPD, they have extremely weird autistic coping mechanisms like having anime boy boyfriends, buying fucking reborns to larp as their anime boyfriend human hybrid spawns, some like kirbychan know they have an extremely hard time relating to people and their coping mechanisms are harmful, but they dont have anything else.

I can really tell you never been in any kind of relationship if you think the goal of being alive is to meet someone and fuck. there is more to it than that, you know that, we're not irrational animals. do you think your life would be immediately fulfilled if you met a moid, married and popped a kid? obviously not. you'd still be mentally ill but with more responsibilities on your shoulder.

you dont get it, do you? i am not interested in your 3DPD shit because i would rather die that let a moid close to me. You allowing a scrote to impregnate you makes you a stupid normie, deal with it. Everyone is mentally ill, you arent special for having anxiety and other normie problems. Thinking all women want to date a 3DPD is peak normalfag behaviour, because you as a retarded normie cannot comprehend how disgusting 3DPD moids are and, worst of all, have to shove your retarded nigel in everyone's faces. No one wants to know about your retarded husbando giving you crabs and cheating on you with his secretary.

how much do you know about people's lives to determine they are fully well adjusted solely on the fact they have signed a paper and live with a scrote? being a normie solely on the fact you have a partner is very much a scrotoid standard, but even nowadays, the most autistic men still are still able to find women who look past their retardation (even in this very board, like the nonna with the drawing on the relationship advice thread rn).

I don't either. The internet was better back then but everything else was worse. The best memories I have from that time are laughing at a post on 4chan while I sat alone in the dark.

You're telling /cgl/ oldfags to get out because they aren't mentally ill enough when /cgl/ was never like that. Seagulls always laughed at the waifu and husbando fags on /a/, the incels on /r9k/ and the nihilist permaNEETs on /jp/. /cgl/ was one of the more normalfag places on 4chan because it revolved around drama, anime cons and cosplay. You're the newfag that's out of place.

There's degrees of normalfaggotry. Nowhere on 4chan at that time was normalfag friendly. It was all weebs, nerds, autists and probably pedos. J-fashion, lolita and anime cosplay were not normalfag hobbies. LC is a spin off site made for the original posters of /cgl/ because moot banned drama and threads laughing at cosplay cows. LC wasn't the first site dedicated to lolcows and it wasn't even the first attempt at an image board for /cgl/ drama.

If you make fun of someone for looking like shit, some newfags will be like
>ogüo I thot this was a feminist soite! Shayna doesn't look obese!! I feel bad for Jillian actually! Ugüu
It makes posting kind of annoying, it's harder to find batshit insane cows that won't delete their shit after noticing a few new followers and when they obsessively Google their names and find themselves here, they selfpost to hell and back and then post a bunch of boring ass cows, become newfags and unironically call trannies by their pwefewed pwonouns.

Even tho I’m not a weeb anymore and it’s been 8 years since I’ve been to a con, I still like looking at the Lolita threads and going into /w/ every once in a while.

I’ve been following Tuna for over a decade, and I miss the threads abt similar people— Bree McGee, and the tumblrcow thread. I first got on the site when Sunny/Yaya/Embryoe has a thread made allegedly by spacepixie on tumblr, I remember them getting into beef and Embryoe accusing spacepixie of incest??? And stayed because all the criticism of Sunny was spot-on. Reading /ot/ before the hidden board was created peaked me and I’m now an active radfem, like on podcasts, in a band, going to womyn’s festivals etc. Looking at threads from 7 years ago when I first started posting is really wild, the board culture and terminology used was really different.

When I think of LC, I think of kotakoti. I was obsessed with her looks at first, then I became a PULL member, but it wasn't enough.
I discovered LC mostly cuz I wanted to discuss Kota.
Back then, she was just "being discovered" by Japan. Fun times.

Nowadays, I mostly lurk /ot/.

I also miss Korean pop critical - in the beginning, where we could really discuss some critical aspects of that industry. Too bad it became a shit fest and how it ended.

I miss Kpop gen and crit threads a ton, but with the wave of newfags and young gen z coming to lolcow, it could never happen. It was fun shitting on idols and pointing out their plastic surgery in a safe space for a while though.

The Kpop critical threads during the Burning Sun scandal were so much fun. I remember the nonnie-made media being top tier. I imagine that if mods never shut it down, every thread now would just be tired discourse about Wonyoung, like how Sydney Sweeney is discussed in the celebricow threads. though SM’s new bg, Riize I think, supposedly has had a few bad scandals already despite JUST debuting

I've been on lolcow since 2014/2015, and the changes over time have been a mixed bag in my opinion.
Things I miss:
>far more explosive happenings (e.g. Onision saga, Venus escaping Marge, Phoebe being herself, Nika and Jaelle though the latter happened while cows were becoming more boring)
>the site generally rallying around a few of the best cows and keeping their threads really active
>more super-niche hobby/scene/lifestyle threads and fewer social media-based cows
>more cows that were memorable, e.g. had years-long lore, were the queen bees of whatever dumb scene they occupied
>less politics/social issues; now it seems like most of the active cow threads are related to a political scene or social issue, which is a shame because the politicization of the internet is a huge part of why it's turned to shit
>late zoomers/gen alpha were too young to find their way here
>generally more interesting things to read and less slice-of-life content
Things I like better:
>much stronger community feel and cozier atmosphere
>non-cow boards are thriving
>more diverse non-cow topics
>generally more supportive environment, despite the fact that half this thread was derailed by someone who can't accept that people's lives change even when their interests don't
>far less insane nitpicking, jealousyposting, and edgelordery
>the bar is higher for cow threads (though vendetta/jealousy threads were my guilty pleasure)
>some of the metadrama has been great these past few years
>fewer scrotes
>(finally) competent admin and farmhands
Things I'm ambivalent about:
>deemphasis of cow boards (the cows have gotten less interesting but how much of that is a function of people using the boards less?)
>farmhands are trigger-happy (a necessary evil but maybe a little too strict at the moment)

No. 1932775

Things like the journalist request thread and the board shutdown threads were top tier chaos I fear we will never outmatch

One of my favourite Lolcow memories is when anons actually outed Momokun's liposuction. She was trying to attribute her sudden weight loss to drinking a lot of that diarrhea tea everyone was promoting at some point but forgot to edit out the scars from liposuction and some anons recognized them as such. Everyone thought she was a far-fetched theory and doubted if she would be as blatant as to lie about it and then she finally came out and admitted it under pressure.

Reading the old onision threads, where Kalvin Garrah calls out Lainey for being a transtrender and Greg sperging out. Surprisingly, a not so small amount of anons were calling Kalvin male and using her pronouns correctly. Was lolcow more forgiving of TIFs back then? Or was Kalvin attacking Lainey enough to make nonnas respect her a little bit? I wasn’t there back then but maybe things were different?

we used to have "real" fakebois on the farms and the old culture was that the trutrans/dysphorics who put in the work to transition were fine because not enough information about the horrors of transitioning even dysphorics had come out then. Back then it was understandable to think someone severely dysphoric might benefit from transitioning because the big exposés about how the suicide rates go up weren't as well known around here (if the research was out then but I think one study was). If you look at the old tif threads you can see it mostly was filled with tifs mocking other tifs not realising they were the same for different reasons at best. The site had a collective peaking a little while back helped by the fact that male troons were always seen as fucked up since agps and fetishists overcame the hsts pretty early on the internet so those threads were always active and finding more stuff. I think the whole JK Rowling situation also caused an intense peaking of the site because everyone could read her words and see how fucked everything got.
Back then a common thing you'd see against taylor was that she wasn't trutrans, now we see it all as a joke but back then was different. I think a few other cows were mocked for trans "grifting" back then kek. Ironic cause now kikomis get more respect for grifting off of those idiots

Been here a decade, but into internet culture since Encyclopedia Dramatica and DeviantArt drama days.

The culture has definitely changed. Seems like people either are more censored of themselves now, or you have tiktok celebs who will say the most unhinged thing and it's accepted, tolerated and even viral for being funny.

There was just a weird, authentic, niche vibe to old lolcows. Maybe it's the product of "everyone being on the internet now". Pretty much everyone has SM, everyone has TikTok. People have also been "canceled" so much that it's meaningless, while truly egregious things like saying the n-word or manhate on social is so taboo that no one does it. I think there was just a special something about lolcows that made them so facinating. They had just little enough social awareness, but just nerdy enough to be interesting. Now it seems like people are more aware of cringe or more tolerant of it, so the flavor is less niche and authentic, and it's boring now.

Anyone else feels like current anons have poor reading comprehension and are snappy and eager to start fights? Not that LC was ever a ~peaceful~ website and admittedly nitpicking has improved, but there's so much infighting going on. Anon A could just try to re-read anon B's innocent post before making an angry, retarded reply. Maybe I'm naive thinking they just need to learn how to read and that they're not being dicks on purpose, but it's so tiring now. It's like walking on eggshells.

>There was just a weird, authentic, niche vibe to old lolcows. Maybe it's the product of "everyone being on the internet now". Pretty much everyone has SM, everyone has TikTok.
The internet as a whole was much better before when it was for nerds, weebs and losers and normies/corporations weren't on it en masse. It has gradually lost its appeal because of that. Almost nothing is really niche anymore because zoomers believe in aesthetics only. They are chameleons, always changing their looks superficially, and have little interest in subcultures、or getting to know things at a deeper level before partaking in it. Also people were more inclined to overshare in an authentic way in the 00's and mid 10's (not trying to become internet famous due to cringe). Those times are long gone.

A generation raised on short form content and twitter politics have fried their brains and are unable to concentrate for long enough to reach a nuanced comprehension of anything longer than a paragraph. They pick out trigger-words and fill in the blanks. They would rather talk past each other for hours in 280 characters than read something twice.

I remember when LC was severely broken to the point where you could only use one of the boards and we spammed some kpoop junglebook type boy making puppy faces while scrotes found the opportunity to start spamming and shit and the jannies are scrambling to keep things in order and it devolved into one glorious massive flame war infighting festival that would rival any kind of gay conversations that done on here now. Then right after that, I think it was announced that the website was gonna shut down because the admin was probably getting cancer-causing stress from running this shitty website and a bunch of wealthy anons donated money. I think it was also revealed the old admin was some cute brown chick that the lesbianons were thirsting after, or maybe that was a hoax? This website is only still up and running because some rich kofi-fag donator put her rent money into this flaming piece of shit kekk. It could have been another male haven adopted by Joshua Moon, but that one anon saved it all. And that’s when I stopped using the site

But these aren't self harm scars. If you've spent enough time around cows it should be obvious. Self harm scars are usually ridges where scar tissue has formed.

More of an appreciation post, but judging by time, I genuinely think lolcow is the best place to discuss online personalities. Reddit snark subreddits are filled with pathetic jealousy-filled boomers/millenials and will milk the most boring cows to death, and so are gossip forums. Commentary channels that discuss less niche cows have comments section made of overly sensitive zoomers, troon pandering obviously, 'uhmm that’s really problematic!!!’ faggotry and the most obnoxious and pitiful blogposts. Kiwi Farms are full of disgusting scrotes. We had some obsessive anons here or unhinged threads, but overall we clean up nicely I think.

>So I might not be an actual old fag, I found this site in 2019, but a lot has still changed. Farmers threw the n word with the er at the end around
I've been here since 2015 and this was never a thing on Lolcow. Using the hard R has been (justifiably) a bannable offense under the racebait clause since at least 2017 or so.

Cows were ruined by normies. Whenever I revisit old internet drama from around the 00's it's basically two retards fighting and everyone else autistically observing and documenting the events that took place while having a big laugh over it, now it's basically a mass cancellation every other week going from 0 to 100 in a microsecond. If Pixyteri existed today in her 2010 form, instead of being relentlessly clowned on and being made fun of, people would write 50-part twitter threads on how she's a problematic racist white pedophile bitch appropriating and colonizing nipponese culture and sexualizing little children. Arguably it's true if you lay it out that way, but the magnitude of such accusations falls flat when you actually look into the mundane dweeb shit she actually DID do. Also it doesn't help that past the 2016 elections the political field has been so highly polarized that altright /pol/ faggots prey on those disgraced people like a cult, which is why you see people post-cancellation slowly slip into that mindset.

I miss her so much tbh, should've appreciated her more when she was still around. Call it an unpopular opinion but the late 2010's lolcow was the peak of the site IMO.

Yes, and multiple anons have complained about it over the last year or so. It started making sense once some farmers said that they've seen self-identified "femcels" on Tiktok bragging about being addicted to Lolcow, but I also feel like we have underage ESL-chans coming in at their wake who just genuinely don't speak English well enough to understand the nuance in anons' posts and pick a fight over their own misinterpretation as the spergposts they drop read like machine translations. I feel for them because I'm ESL myself, but at least I was an adult when I first posted on Lolcow.

She posted so much and the threads were constantly moving. I miss her.

I can't pinpoint what I miss, but it certainly lost the vibe it had to me.
