I suggest the next time you post a .gif it's animated.

Just kidding I love you

No. 48

Can we get a the hover quote text like Unichan has? Or something like 4chan does.

No. 51

Would it be possible to implement those little pop-out quotes, like on 4/unichan?
Where reply posts are listed, as well as quoted posts showing up when you hover over them?
If not, that's cool. Stamrose was like that as well, and it was livable.
Thanks for the new space, Admin.

Looking into it.

After posting, could you make it auto-redirect back to the post we made and not the main board? Just a personal preference of mine, if no one else wants that it's cool.

Clicking a post number while quoting a post is one way. There may be a keyboard shortcut for it as well.

Nigga you fancy!


Can I add that maybe sometime in the future we can get a decent looking banner? That would be the shit, SR never got one for some reason

No. 94

>>92
Rotating banners would be ideal

No. 97

>>92
>>94
Sure. If any of you want to draw up or suggest some banners, I'll add them.

I guess ideally we'd have one static image at the top for each board, and then random rotating banners for every board.

No. 99

>>97
Image dimensions? I might try my hand at it.

Also thank you Admin <3

No. 100

Should I add any more boards? I want to keep it minimal. 2 or 3 total I think is good.

No. 103

>>99
Image dimensions for the top image can be pretty much anything. There'd be one different one per board.

For the rotating banners…let's stick to 300x100, like 4chan has, I suppose.

Also, you're welcome. :)

No. 107

>>100
2 is fine for now I think.

If anything was learned from boxxyforever it was that too many boards to start off can be bad.

4chan has the right idea about only creating boards if there's a need for it. Or for containment purposes.

No. 109

Its looking really great.

No. 119

I'm considering either modifying /b/ to have poster IDs, or making a new board that has poster IDs enabled. Might be useful when people want a little more assurance they're not talking to a samefag.

Unnecessary, or a reasonable idea?

No. 122

Can we have a sticky of everything PT?

No. 125

>>122
Right now it looks like there may end up being more than a few threads about her. When things settle down a little, and if this board is still being used by people, I could make it just a single sticky.

What dimensions would you like them to be? I'll make one or two tomorrow after work. This place isn't kawaii enough. I need more kawaiiness when talking about our dear queen.

Thank you so much for setting this up, admin.

No. 135

>>132
300x100 for banners, please. Any dimensions work fine for board images: use whatever you think would look best.

I'll try and work on adding additional stylesheets, too.

No. 137

Yo admin chan when you add stuff to the site is that why I could be seeing a 500 server error? (sorry to keep bugging you.)

No. 139

>>137
It would appear the server is experiencing problems due to the heavy load, unfortunately. I'm trying to resolve it.

I may have to end up upgrading the server.

No. 154

Performance issues should be resolved now.

No. 186

I'm not sure if I'm just stupid but is there a way to make it so that when I f5 a thread it will stay on that thread and not go to the front/rules page?

Could that be done?

No. 195

>>186
This was due to the annoying frameset index page. I've replaced it with something nicer now. Should no longer be an issue.

Auto thread reloading should also be working okay now.

No. 197

Please tell me if any of you experience the issue of making a new post in a thread and then not seeing it until you refresh once or twice. I'm tweaking some cache settings.

No. 224

I had an issue and had to refresh a couple of times before seeing it

No. 237

video embed maybe?

No. 238

>>197
Yeah, that just happened to me. Made a post about 30 minutes ago (I think?) left the site, came back and didn't see the post until I refreshed.

No. 241

>>237
If you add this, please make it an option to click [Embed] like 4chan has and not auto embed. On CatieChan the threads filled with videos would often take a long time to load, especially on mobile devices.

Done. There's a box for embedding a Youtube video. Put the full link to a video there.

When displaying on pages, it'll just show the preview image. Videos will only be loaded when you click on the preview.

No. 263

I'm currently messing with the default stylesheet. Trying to make it look similar to SR's, with a bit of custom flavor.

In the mean time, I've added a bunch more stylesheets you can use for now. There's a dropdown in the bottom right.

No. 264

>>263
Unichan stylesheet maybe?

No. 265

>>264
Unfortunately that's easier said than done. SR and Unichan both use different board software, so I have to manually port the stylesheet over.

I'll work on it soon though.

No. 302

Can we have a kawaii design in an ironical way?

No. 304

Is there any way to add spoiler images? I know we don't have a ton of nudes right now but seeing that the images are fairly large thumbnails I'd be ok with spoilers so I don't have to scroll past a ton of nudes.

If it's not possible that's ok as well. I just thought I'd ask. :)

On the old board I heard someone mentioning something about 'efagz'. I assume it's another lolcow website. Maybe the board can get linked there.

a lot of the efagz members where on staminarose and have been wondering what the hell happen, there was just a PT post today.

No. 722

Efagz is still active, but to be honest it's mostly full of sensitive cunts like PULL is. I think it's safe to say that most Efagz members are overweight since most of the time they pick on thin models to the fullest extent calling them bones and unfuckable and shit but the moment you call a fatty like PT a fatty, they collectively get their panties in a knot and go on about why fat acceptance is so """important""" lol.

Why did Stamrose go down again?? I heard something about a mod getting tit-twisted and closing it, but have no idea if that's true or not so yeah.

No. 734

>>720
Do you want to post a link to here on efagz?

No. 735

>>722
A couple of users from /cow/ made false claims and came on SR to say PT molested a 3 year old child. They also pretended to be a couple of guys who knew britfag. The claim rattled the board, PTNR also said PT babysat a child of that age, and people said they were going to call PT's mom/get interpol involved. The the admin shut down the board.

No. 749

>>735
While the whole ordeal was a mess, I think in hindsight the SR admin did the right thing. Her closing the board not only shut up a lot of whistle-blowers, it also may lull PT into thinking because SR is down we've given up talking about her

No. 752

>>749
Agreed, she first tried to get those trolls gone with closing the thread but they always would make a new one, there was no other way than closing the site to stop it.

No. 758

>>749
>>752

The admin was already acting like a cunt before those guys showed up, like bitching about new members, threatening to shutdown the site, insulting the members collectively when she sharted her panties.

And my God was she stupid, "I DON'T TRUST ANY OF YOU" "WILL SOME OF THE /COW/ MODS COME AND HELP ME WITH MY BOARD, I'M NOT A NECKBEARD AND I DON'T HAVE ANYTIME BECAUSE I HAVE A LIFE" lol asking the same site that trolled us to come mod the board. ~she sure is wise guise~

She sounds like she just got out of HS to be honest.

And it doesn't matter what PT thinks, she's still under a tight leash with britfag around. It's not like we're getting any damn content any time soon just because "GUYS SHE THINKS WE'RE GONE :D" So fucking what? We lost PTNR, was it worth it? The admin is shit and so are you if you think otherwise.

No. 760

>>758
I'm not saying we're suddenly going to get a flood of content. There's no need to go full momrant about it. SR's admin was no saint but at the same time she cut short what could have been a huge frothy mess.
PTNR is still out there. If you want her "damn content" so badly, go PM her on the board she most recently posted on.

No. 761

>>760

People had already moved on after the trolls came forward and admitted they lied with those silly little recordings. They weren't continuing anything.
The damage had already been done when they first came forward and people started talking about interpol, contacting her (skypeanon), and her mom if I recall correctly.
Her shutting down the site is the equivalent of closing the barn door after the horses escaped. It had nothing to do with damage control, it was just a tantrum she threw fran stylez.

She then went to say on Unichan that she didn't want the domain anymore and would transfer it to someone else because she lost interest in it and had #real life stuff going on#

Have fun licking her paranoid twat when she reopens the site though, you wont be missed.

No. 763

I have to say this, admin was caught lying a few times. The obvious one was when she said that all the troll postings belonged to one IP address. That was confirmed to be a lie on n0chan where these namefags came clean (P-Logic and Mirrorman).
The other time was when everyone was shitting on PTF on this one thread last year. I was one of the shitposters, with maybe two posts. The rest were done by another person or maybe more. She then came in the thread and gleeful exclaimed "A LOG A LOG literally every post here against PTF was from one single IP", which she then proceeded to pick an IP out and post it in the thread followed with the "I think PTF is a pretty cool guy blah blah blah don't talk bad about him"

She has also apparently been secretly banning people that pissed her off when she said that bannings would only happen if you violated her only rule, Don't Contact PT's Family.

So yeah, I have no respect for her.

Also excuse the run-on sentences.

No. 839

>>763

Yup, Admin also banned me as one of these "trolls" and said my IP was the same as these guys, just because I was posting caps of the Skype convo,

No. 862

I wish she'd bring stamrose up long enough to get the links to recorded tinychats and other videos. Love it or hate it there was tons of content on there that's not posted anywhere else.

No. 905

>>862
I agree, a lot of old content is gone into the void now. And if she doesn't want to bring the site back to life, she could at least bundle all the useful content and give to us.

No. 971

Not sure if this is the right thread to post this in, but sometimes Google Chrome has trouble accessing this board and is only able to access a cached copy. Does anyone else have this problem? I don't have a problem with any other webpage, just this one.

No. 1003

>>971
This is the right thread. I tried to fix all of the caching issues about a week ago.

Are you getting a specific error message? Does the page say Incapsula on it? How often does it happen, and does a single refresh usually fix it? Has anyone else also been seeing this?

Also try to clear your browser cache and your DNS cache if you know how to.

I use Chrome too but have never had this problem.

So of course when I try to recreate the problem so I can let you know exactly what's going on and take a screencap, it works fine. Thanks admin, I'll let you know ITT as soon as it happens again.

No. 1099

>>1080
In all likelihood it was a temporarily bad link between the CDN and the web server. That means it should have a very low chance of occurring again. If it does happen again it'll probably be completely random. But if it does, a screenshot would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Adjusted a few things, tell me if you still see it. The board software has very aggressive spambot detection by default.

No. 1772

If only mcdonalds had this kind of service.

Btw I was getting the request looks automated shit then I just used another Web browser and it worked fine.

No. 1773

>>1772
Yeah, that's one way of fixing it.

If you see it happen again, one way to temporarily fix it should be to copy/save whatever you were posting, refresh the thread, and try posting again. You may have to go back to the main board page and click on the thread again to make sure it really refreshed in some cases.

I think people won't be seeing it anymore though.

I've added better post timestamps.

All are converted to your current timezone. By default a relative timestamp like "5 hours ago" will appear. If you want to see the original timestamp, just hover your mouse over it.

Also, if you are from the US then the full timestamp will use the 12-hour clock and US date order. Otherwise it will use the 24-hour clock and European date order.

They need to be in WebM format (ending in .webm). WebM is a new format specifically for web video and audio. This is the same format that 4chan supports.

You can use a site like this to convert to WebM http://video.online-convert.com/convert-to-webm

Alternatively, you can upload your video to Youtube and post the Youtube video link in the Youtube field.

REAL TALK:

would you ever consider combining PULL with this site? Freeforums sucks ass and it would be nice to have everyone and everything in one place. I would be more than willing to help code, install, or otherwise just set shit up. There is also a lot of potential ad profit in that for you.

>it would be nice to have everyone and everything in one place

Nnnnoooo. This is a bad idea. Lolcow and PULL may have similar content, but exist for very different purposes. PULL sucks as it is with all its SJWs and self-promoters. We don't need that shit here.

No. 6240

>>6237
This. Lain, I love you but PULL is like a hydra at this point. Get rid of one SJW or idiot, several more will take their place and become louder. I think it's best we keep the forums seperate. If it weren't for the retards, I'd think it's a great idea but alas.

No. 6249

>>6234
Yeah no. PULL's full of SJWs and wannabe aidoru/living dolls. We have enough cancer here from Unichan m'lady fags. I'm sorry, but most PULL users aren't familiar with anonymous internet board etiquette. Their posts stick out like sore thumbs.

Love you as well Lain, but just no.

No. 6258

If people want to keep this place semi-secret then I'd suggest the following.

1) Anonymise all links using something like anonym.to so that lolcow doesn't turn up as a referrer.

2) Disable video embedding so that lolcow doesn't appear in Youtube stats.

3) Might as well tell robots to noindex to prevent lolcow from appearing easily in search results.

No. 6262

>>6234


Really Lain, really? Do you think that your silly little forum made of bitter, butthurt wannabe-snowflakes who flip their shit at the sole mention of a gasp fat joke would handle the shit we write here? Yeah, I didn't think so.

No. 6265

>>6258
The problem is that this site still gets indexed and when searching some snowflake's name their threads show up there and many snowflakes search their names 24h so they end here sooner or later.

No. 6268

>>6265

Google and other big Western search engines will obey robots rules. You can even use Webmaster Tools to manually remove links from the index.

The problem is sites like Baidu who don't give a fuck about any rules you set.

No. 6276

>>6234
PULL and this site serve vastly different functions and therefore have largely different userbases. Case and point being the no rules rules here and the shit ton of rules on PULL. It would be fucking terrible if the sites were merged. Random visitors from PULL can't even lurk and not namefag/trip, it'd be horrific if they moved over en masse.

No. 6277

Agreed, lolcow is more talking and PULL is more finding/archiving/discussing proof.

I can disable search engine indexing of threads if you guys want. I believe SR always had indexing on and I think people were okay with that. There are some advantages and disadvantages to it.

>>6234
I sent you an email to discuss some options. As the others in this thread have said, it's probably not a good idea to merge the 2 sites into 1, but there are a few things that could be done. At the least, I could help get PULL off of freeforums.

Just to be clear, I do not intend on ever placing ads on this site or any other site though.

No. 6315

>>6309

The only downside to the indexing I can see is that regarding the Ostrenga situation it may potentially lead them here, but on the other hand they haven't uploaded any new stuff for a while and it's inevitable that we'll get found out eventually.

No. 6325

>>6232
>Has there been any takers for the banner? I can fix something up if there hasn't been any.

The banners will be rotating banners, so there can be an infinite number of them. They'll be like 4chan's rotating banners. Everyone is free to suggest or contribute a banner. In fact, the more banners we have, the better.

A site or board logo would be permanent and should probably only be done by one person though.

No. 6428

Can we make some rules actually? SR anons contacting PTs family killed lols as did anons contacting OCs. Maybe blatant racism too? Idk what some anons problems with Mexicans is but its severe shitposting that derails discussions. Not even SJW I just find it idiotic and gross.

I'll strongly consider some slightly more strict rules if I can find a volunteer who feels they would be adept at objectively enforcing these new rules, as well helping to decide on what rules to establish.

>Maybe blatant racism too? Idk what some anons problems with Mexicans is but its severe shitposting that derails discussions.
That seems like more of an issue of spam. We shouldn't even touch the racism thing. What is blatant racism, anyway? You can't measure it, comes down too much to the admin's discretion which I don't like and I don't think she wants to make that call either. Spamming the board with inane bullshit is another thing entirely.

No. 6627

>>6625
It depends how the majority of people feel about it.

If anyone has any rule suggestions or concerns, please post them in this thread.

So far this board has been operating with essentially no moderation of discussion. All deletions and bans issued up to now have only been for Marijan.

There are pros and cons to moderating the actual quality of discussions. I'd like to see what people's ideas are before I instate anything new.

No. 6631

>>6627
I think when someone starts having a complete sperg attack just because they think they may be talking to a black, Mexican, or whatever on a message board, and is "triggered" into a sperg rage over seeing say a Mexican (or someone they think is Mexican, they should be given a temporary or perm ban and posts deleted because they add nothing of value to the thread. All it does it make people feel disgusted and derail the thread into oblivion.

I don't care about the racism, it's going to happen, but this unichan faggot cannot stfu about Mexicans.

Every fucking thread with a brown person in it or mentions a Hispanic person will make him go into a sperg rage and he'll derail the thread (BAW A MEXICAN SLUT TOOK A PICTURE OF PT WHO IS SOOO MUCH BETTER THAN HER).

No one gives a shit faggot, baww baww I live in a border town and the spics took over (you lying motherfucker). Border towns are poor to begin with and have ALWAYS been full of Hispanics from Mexico and Central America. There has never been one border town that was magically all white and then invaded by Mexicans.

You're a poorfag and you're mad you're stuck in a border town, go sperg outside. You should move to Detroit if you hate beaners so much, niggers are known for their hospitality and kindness.

All border towns are poor. I used to live in one, $900 for a 3 bedroom apartment at the country club. You must be really really fucking poor if you're complaining about poor Mexicans invading your poor neighborhood.


With that in mind, I don't suggest anyone living in a border town, it sucks and all the restaurants are Mexican. I mean I like Mexican food, but jfs some variety is nice.

Don't see the point of this. All threads auto update every 10 seconds. I don't really see why someone would want to turn that off or increase the interval, and a lower interval would be a bit too much for my server.

>10 seconds is a bit low, you could easily up it to 15 or 25. Not even 4ch x has lower than 30.
It is indeed quite low. I like it how it is though, and due to the way I have the server and application set up, each refresh incurs almost no additional load. It was 30 initially, and I eventually moved it to 15 and then 10 after testing. If this site ever gets anywhere near 4chan's level of traffic, then I'll probably increase it.

>Tick box would be to let people save bandwidth.

The amount of bandwidth used by a single client from auto-refreshing is minimal. It would only be useful for people who wanted to save me bandwidth, but again, there's no need.

I considered "expand all images" but I'm not sure if many people actually use that feature. Don't click-expand and hover-expand provide a better experience?

Can you implement the option to view last 50 or last 100 posts since some threads are becoming really long.

No. 9277

>>9246
I'll look into it. Unfortunately, this board software does not support anything like that by default, so it will require significant modification.

No. 9326

The page length itself isn't the problem.

1) The images take ages to load and because their size isn't fixed in the HTML or CSS they cause a repaint each time they load. Lazy loading images is probably the best solution.

2) According to the Chrome profiler there's some really slow Javascript calling querySelectorAll a lot. I can't discern more because all the JS is minified but it looks like it was written with no concern for performance.

No. 9351

>>9326

Actually it looks like #1 isn't true (but lazy loading could still help on mobiles).

The slowdown definitely seems to be JS. Chrome sends 7 seconds in querySelectorAll in the Jrcach thread. Also 2.8s in do_localtime.

No. 9490

>>9351
I'm aware of the slow loading Javascript. I optimized a few other things (like cross-thread post hovering) to skip processing all Javascript until absolutely necessary, but straight up loading a thread will still be slow.

I can tell you that performance was definitely considered. Believe it or not, initially it was much slower. I had to modify quite a bit of Tinyboard's default Javascript to make it faster. One thing I can't avoid is that some of the libraries I'm using (like moment.js for the time formatting I added) are very slow, and the time spent processing increases linearly with every post.

Client side optimization is definitely not my specialty. If you want to take a look at the unminified files, they're all here: http://lolcow.farm/js/

showOPLinks and do_localtime appear to be the biggest bottlenecks.

For threads that are under 100 posts, the Javascript processing time is pretty minimal, so a "last 50 posts" option will effectively solve the issue if people mostly use that. But I'll gladly take any recommendations for other speed improvements. Lazy loading for every post (not just images) might help, by distributing all post processing over the time period it takes for a user to scroll down.

No. 9538

>>9490

It's basically impossible to debug minified JS without a sourcemap connecting it to the original files. Most minifiers will generate sourcemap these days.


Going by the Chrome profiler in the Jrcach thread these are some of the slowest areas:

handle_images - one of the selectors is slow as hell or being run multiple times (or everything is running multiple times, who knows).

do_localtime - it seems to be moment() that is slow as hell. I don't really see the point of pretty dates considering the performance cost.

showBackLinks - not really sure. Probably due to the DOM manipulation.


The fact that jQuery is used makes things a pain as everything is littered with internal jQuery methods.

But overall I see a lot of DOM manipulation and think a lot of it would be better handled if the server output the desired HTML in the first place.

No. 9548

Okay, after looking at show-op.js I realized it was doing a ton of unnecessary work. I could rewrite it, but I looked around and saw that quoting an OP is fairly rare (for obvious reasons), so I just removed the code completely.

I also made a few changes to the time handling.

There should be a small speed increase now.

The code for image hiding is really a mess, but I'll try and rework it a bit.

>>9538
Personally I like the relative times, so I'd like to keep them as they are if at all possible. I know moment.js is really slow, so I'm going to look around for replacements.

I'm pretty sure 90% of the slowness can be found in http://lolcow.farm/js/local-time.js (which I don't think can be optimized much without replacing of the moment library) and http://lolcow.farm/js/hide-images.js

Moving things like image backlinks and related to the backend would simply be too much work for me. If I really had the time though, I'd probably rewrite this whole imageboard in something that isn't PHP, and with React for the frontend.

No. 9552

>>9548

Personally I find relative dates a bit of a pain after a day or so. Gmail has relative dates and it pisses me off (but you can get the real date from hovering).

It's OK when it says "30 mins ago" but "2 months ago" is just annoying when I want the actual day and time.

So only run moment on dates less than 3 days ago or something?

No. 9555

>>9548

The thing about hide-images.js/handle_images is that Chrome is saying that all the slow down is coming from querySelectorAll, which means that the bad performance is either all due to a bad selector or $('.whatever') being called a thousand times within a loop or something like that.

No. 9588

>>9555
Fixed image-hide.js. It should have negligible performance impact now.

The code was an utter mess. Whoever did the Javascript for Tinyboard clearly did not know much about it.

Note: Anyone who's previously hidden any images will need to go and re-hide them again.

Still looking into options for the relative times.

Please be a saint and set a cap to threads, requiring people to make a new one at around 800-1000
It'll be great, but it's fine if you cannot.
Also, is there a such thing as a archive on this website?

No. 23058

>>22981

Honestly, I think this is something we can do ourselves. It doesn't have to be a rule because people aren't against making new threads when the current one is too long.
How about we all just make a new thread when it reaches 1000 posts. We can start on the Dakota/Weirdo-sister-I-forget-her-name one.

I'd do it, but I don't follow her and I like it when the first original post has a funny picture/screenshot, some info to enlighten the new, and continue the conversation where it last left off. (something about her eating "vegan" Japanese treats or something).

Of course these aren't guidelines, be creative! Be funny!

No. 23124

>>22981
For the time being, I've disabled bumping for all threads that have more than 1200 posts. This means you can still post in them, but new posts will no longer bump the thread. This should encourage people to make new ones when they want to continue active discussions.

This may be subject to change.

As for an archive, I'm not sure there's a point? I have disabled thread pruning, so all threads will last forever and will effectively be archived by default.

This just means it thought you might have been a bot instead of a human. If it comes up, you only have to enter the captcha once (ever).

The fact that it let you through after leaving the page just means its initial guess about you being a bot was wrong, and the second time it properly verified you.

Sorry about the outage today. The site was inaccessible for an hour or two.

Some people may still be unable access the site for 24 hours due to domain changes that can be slow to propagate. Other than that, everything should be okay now.

We're now using Cloudflare, so please report any issues you see regarding performance or consistency. If you post in a thread and don't see the post appear when you refresh or change pages, please report that too.

The site will now be moving to full HTTPS.

If you're getting errors or are unable to see the banner, you probably need to flush your DNS cache. Instructions for doing so across all operating systems can be found here: How to clear the DNS cache

For Windows, it is ipconfig /flushdns from the command line. If you're still encountering problems after doing so, please describe your issue in this thread.

Yes, it should work fine. Unless your school is blocking all HTTPS everywhere, which is very unlikely.

>also, will you also add a back to top button? it's hell scrolling back through threads to post on mobile

If you just want to reply to a post on your phone, you should be able to click on any post number and then see a Quick Reply box appear (it will also automatically quote the post). Also, you should have a hovering Quick Reply link that follows as you scroll. If either of those things don't appear, then please tell me what generation of phone you have, because that would suggest your phone does not properly support Javascript.

However, I have also added an up arrow just now.

>>26044
Done.

The site is only accessible over HTTPS now, so try accessing it from school. If you can't, then your only option is to try and find a proxy that isn't blocked, sorry.

>it's Android 4.1.2 if that's what you mean by generation?

That's a fairly recent phone. In that case, you should be seeing a Quick Reply box when you click on post numbers. You should also be seeing the Quick Reply floating link on the right.

I should have a slightly better solution for this soon (sorry, I've been kind of busy lately), but for now everyone can use https://lite.lolcow.farm to access a "lite" version of the site. Everything is the same, except there is almost no Javascript.

Note that without Javascript, a lot of features will be missing. But it should resolve some of the problems with slower/older devices having issues rendering pages. Please tell me if it doesn't.

For now, when you use lite.lolcow.farm every page and thread you visit will be in lite mode. If you want to switch back, you'll have to manually type "https://lolcow.farm" in the URL bar again, or you could use a bookmark.

There may be some bugs with this, so please report them if you see any.

I.e. a thread will be pushed off page 1 but not appear on page 2. If you look in the catalog you can see that the missing thread is between the last thread on page 1 and the first thread on page 2.

I did a few basic tests and I could not reproduce. I'm going to assume it only happens rarely. That would explain the intermittent reports of missing threads though.

This is due to a combination of using a phone and having a spotty connection.

I'm going to adjust some settings so the duplicate posts are less likely to be submitted. You may still see the error message though. If you do, you should copy your post, close the tab, wait a minute or 2, check the thread again to see if your post went through, and if not try resubmitting again.

So, I've noticed on some threads on mobile, that there is no arrow pointing down (unless you're at the complete bottom of the page) same thing for up.
I don't really mind it, but when you have to scroll down a long 1k thread, it's annoying.

No. 47934

>>47784
Does this happen for all threads? The likely cause is that the entire thread is taking a while to load. The arrows won't appear until all content is 100% loaded by your phone. The majority of this loading time is consumed by all the Javascript that runs. If you use lite mode, nearly all Javascript is gone except for the arrows, so I'd recommend trying that.

It seems odd that the arrows would only appear once you reach the bottom of the thread though. Can you try visiting multiple threads, large and small, and see if it's just a delay in the arrows appearing, or if they really only appear when you're at the bottom? Also check to see if the same thing happens in lite mode.

Hey guys, I don't think this is an actual problem.

I thought I was encountering this myself until I realised that the pages are loading zoomed in on my phone so that the arrows are just ever so slightly eclipsed out of few.

First anon with the problem.
Replying to admin first, I don't get this with all threads. I got it with the Micky thread and the Kiki threads. Shorter threads don't get that problem. And I don't get this problem here either. I also tried making the page load longer, but the problem still remains.

As for the "solution", sadly that isn't the case. I just see ONE arrow at a time. At it would be top if I were top of the page, and bottom if I were at the bottom at the page.

No. 48577

The problem is due to certain threads stretching the page width.

It may take some time to properly fix that across all devices. In the meantime, I was able to see both arrows again in those threads first by zooming out horizontally, then vertically. Try zooming out in all directions and see if that fixes the issue.

No. 49822

Does the zoom out solution work for everyone at the moment?

I also fixed an old unrelated bug where clicking a post mention link (links such as >>2 >>3 >>4 quoting your post and appearing to the right of your post number) sometimes did not scroll all the way down to the actual post.

The poster you're referring to has actually been posting here for many months. To my knowledge there has been no recent influx or invasion from 4chan or Tumblr, with the exception of a few trolls. There are just various different kinds of people who use sites like these.

Also, some people intentionally post in that "tumblr tween" style yet are generally intelligent otherwise. I think it's a cultural thing.

No. 60184

>>59941
>Firefox keeps asking to save a password when replying
Chrome will often do this too. Usually it's based on the post password, which is set by default. I'd prefer to leave this on. Normally that field is autocompleted with a cookie, however if your lolcow.farm cookie is cleared for any reason, you won't be able to delete any posts you've made because the password would change. Browsers saving the password will ensure it remains the same even if the password cookie is gone. So, I expect some people might use that feature.

>Can't close webms

There should be a little minus sign at the top left of webms. That closes them.

>Link redirects are often broken

Still in the process of finding a proper alternative link anonymizer to use instead. I know this is a very annoying bug.

>Embedded Youtube width/height is wrong causing black bars

I don't really care enough to fix this, to be honest. The videos have the same dimensions as images, so that's how they appear. Making them larger would make them jut out in comparison to regular post images. I sort of assumed most people just played the videos in full screen anyway, and/or clicked on them to view it on Youtube directly.

No. 64502

As the rules say, samefagging and shitposting are allowed on both boards.

>Consistently off-topic or extremely irritating posts may result in a warning or short ban, and repeat offenders may receive a long or permanent ban from /pt/.

However, significant derailment of threads in /pt/ is not allowed, and I also have a special case for "extremely irritating posts". The criteria for "extremely irritating" is just an arbitrary decision on my part and nothing more.

I prefer to moderate as little as possible. I've spent a fair bit of time on forums and imageboards, and I've found (depending on the site's purpose) it's better to have too little moderation than too much, even if that occasionally results in a heightened amount of lower quality posts.

But if someone is a significant annoyance to the majority of the community, with no supporters, usually a warning and short ban are called for.

And obviously I completely agree with that.

It only becomes a problem when racial (or sexual or religious) discussion completely derails and dominates a thread originally about a totally different topic. Please feel free to discuss whatever you like in /b/, and please feel free to share your views and opinions in /pt/, even extreme views. But when posting in /pt/, try to keep things on topic and don't go out of your way to start fights over those views. If you'd really like to discuss a certain topic in depth, I'd recommend starting a thread in /b/ and taking the conversation there.

Not to be picky, but ESL is technically 'english as a second language' which doesn't necessarily mean someone's english is horrible.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_as_a_second_or_foreign_language

I'm ESL and I don't type like a blithering retard. Nor do a lot of the other ESL posters on this board (there's a tonne of us).

ESL chan's english not being perfect is NOT a reason to ban them. It might be annoying to you, to see mistakes etc. but that's not an opinion everyone shares, and like admin said, unless they're shitposting like a champ or breaking the rules, there's no reason to ban them.

I honestly don't care if people come on here and don't have the most perfect grasp of the English language. It really doesn't matter to me. They were just shitposting constantly and that's what's annoying.

I don't care about esl chan, tbh. It's freaking racist-chan who shifts up and derails every single thread.

I'm not trying to shit on you admin, I know it's tough to keep up with everyone, but come on. Racist chan is breaking the rules and they should face repercussions too.

No. 68604

First off, please always report posts you think are derailing threads. It seems like most of the reports we get are complete bullshit ones ("this post is mean"), while the actual posts most people have issues with often aren't reported by anyone. I can't check up on all threads at all times.

>It's freaking racist-chan who shifts up and derails every single thread. They even admitted to being the one who ruined the lolikillian(or whatever her name is) thread and they never face any sort of ban because "they contribute."
Racist-chan has been (temporarily) banned several times, and is nearing her last strike. I will permaban someone if I have to, I'd just like to avoid it when I can.

She's not the only "racist" poster though (there are about 3 total), she's just the one who likes to interject into threads the most. As for the Lokillian thread, IMO she wasn't shitting it up at all and was on-topic. She only identified herself because she was accused of being the person she was defending.

Admin-chan I'm not happy about a ban one of your farmhands issued to me in a thread.

Some shitposter was derailing the thread Haku thread talking about how basically everybody in the world inhabits aspects of Shinji from Evangelion (I don't even fucking know) and how we're all insecure and I told them to shut the fuck up and received a ban for it.

Normally I wouldn't bitch about something like thus, but I'm concerned because it's haphazard moderation like this and tossing out bans for no real discernible reason that is the reason I left 4chan.

If trying to get shitposters/derailers out of a thread is against the rules can we get some clearer guidelines on this?

No. 70570

>>70549
That is a valid ban. Thread derailment has become a major issue lately. You're paraphrasing the real situation: you both made more than 4 posts about the subject and were arguing, with no clear end in sight. Both of you appeared to be derailing the thread and perpetuating the off-topic discussion, which quickly devolved into bickering and namecalling, so you were both banned for the same length of time (5 hours). The ban also only applied to /pt/ and not /b/.

Bans are very rarely issued here and I really do try to employ the most relaxed moderation policy I can. But many users have reported a reduction in discussion quality due to thread derailments in /pt/.

The rules state in multiple places that excessive off-topic discussion does not belong in /pt/ threads, but I agree the rules are fairly vague regarding what degree of off-topic discussion is acceptable and when it crosses over into pure derailment.

https://lolcow.farm/rules.html

>Keep discussion to lolcows for the most part. Anything that's considerably off-topic may be moved to /b/.

>Consistently off-topic or extremely irritating posts may result in a warning or short ban.
>Off-topic threads or posts may be moved to /b/. Threads and posts will not be deleted simply for being off-topic.


I'd like feedback from the community regarding these 2 points:

1. Were these particular 5 hour bans justified for topic derailment?

Here are the off-topic posts (nearly all of which were made by the 2 banned posters), if anyone would like to take a look:

>>70416

2. Should we establish a rigorously defined policy for thread derailing and the appropriate moderative action to take, and if so, what should that policy look like? Draft copies of example guidelines would be appreciated.

I don't, I would just scroll down with my right hand, totally unzoomed and it'll appear like that, I'll get screenshots when my phone is charged. It's not a high amount of images, but a good percentage of them were on spoiler images (especially in Lady Alt and Fat fuck who's name I forgot thread)

You were shitposting, too, honestly. The whole thing would have ended had you never perpetuated it, especially considering the Eva post was like a day old but you still felt the need to respond with b8.
I'm the second person who got banned btw. I don't really mind it because I was posting OT shit to begin with, it's fair.

I also want to query, if you did get another off topic poster who seemed intent on derailing a thread like the Shinji poster and multiple people began trying to get them to stop, say 5,6+ people, maybe even the entire thread, would you proceed to ban everybody that contributed to that or just the shitposter?

I'd also like to add in the posts you linked you said nearly all of which were made by the 2 banned posters but mine are actually just under half of them so there's obviously a 3rd/4th party in there.

At that point everybody in the thread would be derailing shit just to tell one shitposter to fuck off, which would be pretty retarded and would warrant a short ban.

No. 70605

>>70601

>which would be pretty retarded and would warrant a short ban


That worries me actually because it was reasons like that, the janitors/mods on 4chan just banning out of the blue without warning, that caused me to leave in the first place.

Like something I've already treasured about this place, even though it's fairly young, is that the moderations has always been fairly lax and the community pretty much allowed to moderate and control itself which is what I was trying to do when that faggot wouldn't shut up about Eva.

I'm not happy about being chastised for something I didn't even start.

No. 70614

>>70605
You didn't start it, but you did continue it.

No. 70617

>>70614

I did continue it but then I'm curious why only I and Shinji fag were banned when there was a 3rd or 4th party involved.

No. 70618

>>70596
>say 5,6+ people, maybe even the entire thread, would you proceed to ban everybody that contributed to that or just the shitposter?

It really depends on what they were saying. If it was "FUCK OFF STOP POSTING", and not repeats of the same post over and over, I wouldn't blame them and wouldn't care. If it's "NO YOU'RE COMPLETELY WRONG ABOUT SHINJI AND BLAH BLAH BLAH HERE'S WHY YOU MASSIVE FAGGOT", I probably would be inclined to ban all of them. Irrelevant but I am a little bit of a Shinji sympathizer myself.

>>70600
It was the arguing after that post which was really the issue. I know you didn't start it, but you went overboard when responding to them.

I was alerted to the posts by a report, and saw multiple posters in the thread didn't seem pleased with all the derailment, which is another reason why I thought it should stop.

But again, I'd like to see input from more posters regarding this issue. This site isn't exactly a democracy but I only want to do what the users want, so I am more than willing to change my policies and views. If some people think the 5 hour bans were excessive in this scenario then I am certainly willing to adjust moderation policy going forward.

>>70617
The third poster made only one post in that chain (one of the first few posts), and did not post anything further. One off-topic post is different from engaging in a long, drawn out off-topic argument.

I think the ban was fine. Five hours is nothing and they were indeed shitposting. The second party is okay with it. There only seems to be one person who's whining about it and it's the other one who got put in time-out.

No. 70625

I understand. Historically we have almost always given a warning first with no ban for off-topic discussion, but I've noticed warnings by themselves not being very effective and have also seen an uptick in complaints about derailment recently.

In the future, I will probably go back to erring towards always giving a warning first if the poster mostly has a clean record.

No. 73725

See >>45294

/b/ has done a pretty good job of being a surrogate /cgl/, I think. I don't really like splitting boards up too much because the board population is not anywhere near the size of 8chan or 4chan, though it certainly is an active community.

8chan /cgl/ and related boards seem like decent alternatives to 4chan /cgl/ if you're looking for a /cgl/ with more relaxed rules.

I would only make a /cgl/ here if there was a lot of demand for it (25+ people requesting it). If anyone else thinks 8chan /cgl/ is somehow insufficient and if they really think we should open up a /cgl/, please post in this thread.

The 2 options for implementing it would be:

1. Rename to /b/ to /bgl/ or something, and make it /cgl/-focused. "Beagles" sounds nice I guess.

2. Open up a third board, /cgl/, and appoint mods to enforce rules specific to that board to ensure most content is on-topic. I would not want the role of deciding whether or not something is sufficiently "seagully".

>>73706
I have a version of it ready, but it's a bit broken, makes threads load slower, and makes scrolling somewhat laggier. I'm not too happy with it at the moment.

I plan on doing a major code upgrade some time within the next 30 days, and around then a version of this feature should be implemented.

By this line, I was trying to say "When life gives you lemons, go to lolcow.farm to cheer yourself up by having a good laugh". Advertising is my job, but I probably need to find another one, because I failed at it and had to explain the meaning of this line, lol.
On the other hand, English is not my native language, so maybe I failed just because of language barriers? I dunno

Hey admin, can we please have a rule for not trashing children who are obviously in very sad/illegal situations? A child being mocked for distributing child pornography and being the victim of statutory rape is not lol worthy. It is sad and disgusting.

Were you searching page by page or did you use the catalog? I recommend using the catalog to find a specific thread. There's still an intermittent issue where a page may show you content that's slightly out of date. This can sometimes cause a thread to "disappear" if a thread is on the edge between 2 pages.

If you run into this issue and don't want to use the catalog for some reason, you can refresh once or twice (once should usually be good enough, but sometimes twice may be required) on each page to clear the cache.

lolcow.farm will be down for maintenance for a short period of time on Friday, May 15. The site may be offline for up to 1 hour, but it should be around 30 minutes.

Idk how well this would be recieved, but I was thinking that I would kind of like us to have an /x/ board on lolcow.

No. 103448

I've seen two bugs, one small one big.

Small:

It's sometimes hard to get rid of the new posts notification in the title if you leave lolcow open in a window and click back into the window.

Big:

There appears to be a memory leak and high cpu usage on a lot of pages (e.g. the shoplifters thread) which causes them to eventually crash if left open in the background. In the Chrome developer tools turn on "show paint rectangles" and "show fps meter" and you can see that on these pages 99% of the page is flashing green every second which indicates constant reflowing.

It's hard to figure out the exact cause with obfuscated code but it might be the trigger warning blinker. It's presumably due to a setInterval accessing offsetWidth, offsetHeight, or getBoundingClientRect as these all cause reflows.

In the Chrome developer tools turn on "show paint rectangles" and "show fps meter" and you can see that on these pages 99% of the page is flashing green every second which indicates constant reflowing.

I've confirmed the blinking text is what's causing the constant page repainting. I can't confirm it's what's increasing memory and CPU time, but I've replaced the JS (which was effectively toggling display: none on and off infinitely) with pure CSS animations. Tell me if the performance issues are still happening.

Most of the memory usage seems to be the ajax poll which I think is just the garbage collector being lazy rather than an actual memory leak. The 1-3% CPU usage is gone though.

Only other big CPU user is GIFs, especially all the banners in this thread. Only solution for that is to hide them when not in view (e.g. opacity 0). I'm surprised that browsers don't optimise this by themselves.

No. 104022

The GC doesn't seem to be kicking in at all, even after like 15 minutes, so I think it is a real memory leak. And it is definitely the AJAX poll. Still trying to determine the best way of fixing it.

We're using Cloudflare's SSL, which uses only the most modern encryption and authentication algorithms. Some browsers and devices/machines are outdated and do not support these, which will result in those errors.

Within a few days, Lite mode will only show still frame thumbnails for GIFs. This should improve performance for threads that have a lot of GIFs. The change is already in, but due to Cloudflare's caching and browser caching, most people won't see the changes for old GIFs until about 5-7 days pass. For newly posted GIFs, the changes should be seen immediately.

This is still stumping me. The tests I ran a few days ago did not seem to show memory decreasing, but the heap profile I just ran is showing the GC kicking in quite regularly, with no memory leak at all.

When I was looking into the memory usage I monkeypatched the poll to only use an XMLHttpRequest and purposefully deleted all variables (including wiping the response contents on the response). Yet still memory usage was going up even if I forced garbage collection (there's a button in the timeline to force it) so I can only assume it was something internal to Chrome. If you Google "xmlhttprequest memory leak" a lot of people have reported the same in the past.


I've noticed the slow typing as well but I don't know when it started. I don't remember it being there like 3 months ago when I last posted from mobile.

Chrome on Android 5: typing is fine
Safari 8.3 on iPad: typing is fine
Chrome on iPad: typing is very slow

The slowness is definitely amplified by the length of the thread and also happens on the lite version.

Chrome on iOS is still using UIWebView which doesn't have the Nitro engine plus some other weird bugs. So there's either some javascript running every time a letter is typed or perhaps some CSS property performs terribly on older versions of Webkit.

Problem is there's no way to properly profile remotely.


The SSL problem on Android is going to get worse over the coming year. The PCI DSS requirements have been updated to disallow TLS 1.0 after June 2016. So if you're on an old version of Android that doesn't let you install Chrome you will need to buy a new phone to access any site that accepts payments.

By "only use an XMLHttpRequest" I mean "bypass jQuery and use an XHR directly".

I've found in posting lately when I click on the post number, it'll show up while I'm typing my reply, but won't show up once I hit send.
I'd have to click on the post number again to make sure I get it to show up in the post. This has been happening for about a week or more.

No. 110608

>>110581
I believe this may be due to a bug in a recent version of Chrome. Try updating to the very latest Chrome version (click "About Google Chrome" and it should start updating) and tell me if you still see the problem.

I made a few Javascript optimizations. Please tell me if you see any improvement in typing speed.

If you don't see an improvement, please specify whether using Lite mode makes any difference in typing speed.

Hey admin-sama this S3 on 4.4.2, I wanted to let you know I still have the same issue even in lite but it might be an issue with Android its self. It seems to have issues with large pages and I've had my browser crash a few times on regular sites.

It may not have anything to do with the board issue but I wanted to give you a heads up, just in case.

No. 111964

Hey Admin, I know this might be a stretch but in the past few weeks there has been a quite significant increase in OT threads. Self posting and "i hate this girl wah" type deals. The thread about the bodybuilder was moved to /b/ which was great! Do you think we could establish some sort of rule/voting system to weed out these salty thrads faster? quality over quantity etc.

No. 112156

>>111964
I've moved 3 off-topic threads within the past 24 hours, but I agree it is becoming a problem. One reason why some of the threads have been up so long is to give a fair chance for people in favor of the thread and people against it to argue why it should stay or go. Otherwise, it feels too dictatorial of me to move the thread just based on limited info and my own first impressions. Once it becomes clear that the vast majority of unique posters in the thread think it should be moved, and once there are more than 5 such posters, then I usually find it safe to move it.

I'm open to the idea of voting, but it's pretty difficult to manage fair voting on a site like this. Even if you completely ignore the anonymity aspects and assume 1 vote = 1 person, you would really need more than 30% of active posters to vote on each thread that's up for contention, otherwise the vote is heavily susceptible to bias and skewing.

For now, please continue to report off-topic threads as soon as you see them, so I can keep an eye on them and/or move them.

I also just added a new rule for /pt/.

>If you are posting a new thread about someone who isn't widely known, and there are no previous threads about this person, include an explanation in the OP or immediate follow-up posts as to why you consider them to be a lolcow. You should include links, pictures, videos, screenshots, quotes, or other evidence. Threads that do not obey this may be moved to /b/.

Thank you for this, Admin-sama. You are truly the glue that hold this board together. Just wondering, is the new influx of off topic/vendetta posts a correlation to an increase of visits to the board? How many people visit lolcow daily, on average? It's okay if you wouldn't like to answer.

No. 112339

>>112219
There is a correlation, but that correlation doesn't necessarily mean anything without controlling for a lot of other factors.

There are roughly 6,700 unique visitors per day on average.

Another interesting fact: 1.8 TB of data was transferred in the past 30 days.

Hey Admin-sama, I know this would be pretty hard to do, but could you make the Lite mode have some optional 'settings', like some checkbox with options of what scripts it should load and whatnot?

No. 112957

>>112838
I could do this. However, 3 things for you and anyone else reading this thread:

1. Who else would be interested in this feature?
2. Which script features would you like to use and consider the most important?
3. Which features do you consider unimportant and do not care about?

Unfortunately, it's possible that the features you want are also ones that cause significant performance degradation; in that case you may not have any other option but to choose between missing functionality and poor performance, at least until I make further optimizations to the main site.

No. 112975

>>112957
1.Anyone who would like to add some functionalities on lite mode without losing too much performance

2.Mostly the options to turn on/off some stuff on lite mode (ex: I find the "quoted posts" and "hover quote" scripts to be very handy, but I never use the arrows or click-expand on images).

3.Anything too fancy, there's no need to overcomplicate it. Checkboxes would be fine.

I understand if you can't work out something like this, but thanks ahead for all that you've done.

Admnin-sama, there's a bunch of OT shitposting in the new Pixyteri thread about buttholes. Could you clean the thread up for us? We're trying to talk about making drawings, not shitty buttholes.

No. 113314

The auto update and new reply box when you click on a post aren't working for me, did something change or am I just being dumb?

>>113307
chill

No. 113333

>>113314
Both of these features appear to be working fine for me. Note that the quick reply box is disabled on small screens, due to size constraints. If you're using something with a larger screen and have used quick reply with it before, see if you have the same problem with a different browser.

No. 113534

>>113307
Oh, get over it. Don't ask Admin-sama to clean up a thread because you can't handle the shitposting, that's a waste of their time. Just don't contribute to it and it will disappear eventually.

In regards to slow typing on an iPad it seems fixed in MIHTool (free app with Weinre built in) but still slow in Chrome. As far as I know they both use UIWebView.

To find the source of the slow typing it might be worth uploading a bunch of static pages with progressively more javascript and CSS disabled. Which would to an extent tie into >>112838.

For what it's worth cloudflare.min.js binds keydown/up events to the whole document so it might be the source. Also localStorage can be unpredictable on mobile. For example Safari in private mode has localStorage enabled but its size set to 0 so normal feature testing doesn't work.

I'm having this problem too, but just on Firefox (38.0.1). It was working fine for me earlier but then it stopped. Seems to work okay on Chrome.

No. 113903

the bar at the top with all the page numbers goes all the way across the screen and covers the options at the top. it's not a huge deal but it would be cool if it maybe just had the first 10 pages then the link to the catalog…most of the most active threads kinda stick to the top few anyway.

I have good ways of testing that internally, though the problem in my case is that I've never experienced slow typing myself across any of my devices or browsers. I'm working with a few other people to try and narrow it down.
