I'm new to this website.
Does a [Catalog] or a search exist?
Does lolcow.farm has an API?
Does lolcow.farm has an archive, even if it's a third-party one, like 4archive.org is for 4chаn

>Does a [Catalog] or a search exist?
There are catalogs for each board.

>Does lolcow.farm has an API?

No.

>Does lolcow.farm has an archive, even if it's a third-party one, like 4archive.org is for 4chаn

lolcow.farm is a natural archive. Threads and posts are never deleted. If you check the catalogs, every thread and post ever made is present.

Is there a list of all the post tags used? I was confused by the robot image at first, and I just saw one for 32" waist-chan, and I want to know more.

During the recent townhalls, the majority of people voted to merge Aly's thread with the ED general thread in /snow/. On both day 1 and day 2, no one could come up with a decent argument for Aly retaining a separate thread other than the fact that it would clutter the general thread.

If you think she should have her own thread again, please provide alternative arguments.

I questioned your whereabouts primarily due to your very juvenile writing style and irritating, oblivious questions. Your support for the Aly thread only further added to my suspicions. If you're really 40, then there are many 18-year-olds here who sound far more mature than you.

edit:

Actually, I could maybe believe you being 40 now. I may have confused you for a minor because you essentially sound like Hillary Clinton trying to use the Internet for the first time. Horseshoe effect, or something.

With all due respect, Admin-sama, I thought this site was a place where one could come to have a laugh. Many people come here to let loose and shirk mainstream societal constraints on demeanor and self-censorship for a little while. I certainly do not come here to vie for maturity points. If you wish to foster an environment facilitating genuine dialogue with the community, where genuine feedback is welcomed and wanted and freely given, laughing at and kicking people out for questions or comments which you perceive to be 'irritating' or 'oblivious' is not helpful. This kind of action inevitably results in people either declining to contribute altogether for fear of being slammed, or deteriorating into an echo-chamber circlejerk fest.
Lolcow is not an etiquette, maturity or scholarly-focused platform and not everyone is going to agree with you or 'act their age' here. That should be a given.

TL;DR: I have great respect and appreciation for all you have to deal with administrating a site like this, but it seems you want to homogenize this community, and as has happened to far too many sites before, doing so will inevitably squelch the vitality and much-loved anon spirit of the site.
Thank you for all you do and all the shit you put up with. Thank you for restoring the Aly board. ~peace~

I only banned you because I, and the rest of the site staff, genuinely thought you were under 18. 18 is the minimum age limit. I do not ban or punish people just for disagreeing with me or being irritating.

In that case I would be grateful for you to un-ban my IP in meta chat, and I will endeavor to post more maturely in the future.

We are currently deciding whether or not to allow threads about underage people.

If you're interested in discussing this, please join the townhall discussion at https://chat.lolcow.farm/r/meta. We'll also be discussing a few other site issues.

The townhall is starting now.

Arguments for banning threads about underage people:

- Threads about underage people attract underage posters, and worsen the site as a whole.
- The minimum age to post is 18, and it's unfair to not let people post in their own threads or defend themselves.
- People under 18 have less self-control and are less culpable for their actions, so it's less justifiable to mock them.
- Creates less liability.

Arguments against banning threads about underage people:

- Freedom of speech.
- We could still allow it, but put the minimum at 16 or 17, and add some stricter criteria for threads about people under 18.
- People like Dakota and Charms were discovered before they were 18. We'd also miss out on the Princess Doll drama. We may be missing out on potentially humorous cows.
- We couldn't have incidents like the shoplifting doxing drama.

No. 2195

We decided to set the minimum age of thread subjects to 16. Threads about people 15 and under are no longer permitted. Also, threads - and in some cases posts in general threads - about 16 and 17 year olds may now only be posted with approval from staff. This applies retroactively.

I also intend to allow certain ways for 16 and 17 year olds to defend themselves or otherwise "post" in threads about themselves without actually posting on the site.

Further details will come within the next few days.

Excuse my autism, but I've noticed posters sometimes seem to mix up the following terms. I see this on other websites, too. This is understandable, since the terms are vague and not widely known.

These are subjective to some degree, but here is how I personally define them.

Samefagging

This is a general term for deceptive posting. It can mean the following things:

- Taking on more than one persona in a thread to make it seem like your view has wider support than it actually does. This is also called sockpuppeting. May involve replying to your own posts agreeing with yourself, or significantly changing writing style to make it seem like a different person is also giving similar positive or negative remarks. Particularly dedicated samefags may try to use a different IP address as well.

- Making multiple posts back-to-back, without obvious indication they were all made by you. This is not always deceptive, though is often annoying.

- May also apply to general false or omitted self-identification. For example, if the subject of a /pt/ thread started secretly and anonymously posting in her own thread to disagree with people or defend herself, this may also be called samefagging. There may be a better term for this, but if there is, I'm not yet aware of it.


Self-posting

Posting about yourself in any way, whether anonymous or self-identifying. For example: posting a picture of yourself, linking to your own profiles, giving excessive details about your life, etc. Self-posts are completely acceptable in some threads and some contexts, but they usually are frowned upon otherwise. You shouldn't try to make yourself stand out on an anonymous board. Valid spellings also include self posting and selfposting.


Vendetta / vendettafag / vendetta-posting

Posting about someone as if you are a random person who happens to dislike them, when in reality you have some sort of personal connection or grudge. Often involves samefagging. Generally has no relation to self-posting, except in cases of self-victimization. In cases where you present the chan with an implicit or explicit "call to action", to further your vendetta, this is also called a personal army (PA) request. Often involves misleading or deceptive information.

An example of a vendetta post would be arguing with a girl on social media, and later posting a thread calling her a whore. Asking people to send things to her parents, or falsely claiming she's violated some site's terms of service and requesting people report her, or including her address and phone number in the post, would be a vendetta post as well as a personal army request.

Though a lot of people read it as sage (the herb) and that's just how it's pronounced now on English-speaking boards, it is actually from the word "sageru" which means "lower." So it should really be pronounced "sah-geh." It just means to push the post down rather than allowing it to be bumped.

No. 2008


No. 2100

Derailing

Derailing means causing a thread to go dramatically off-topic, often intentionally. It does not mean merely disagreeing with the OP, others in the thread, or the premise of the thread. This kind of disagreement is perfectly on-topic.

Please do not send reports just because someone is taking a stance opposite to most of those who've been posting in the thread. This is not against any rules. People are allowed to disagree.

No. 2188

>>2007
wow, I didn't know that. I thought it was sage, as in the ritual, in which you burn sage (the herb) in your home to clear the bad energy.

speaking of sage. can someone tell me honestly HOW to sage? people keep yelling "learn to sage!!" then never telling anyone how to. then making fun of the people trying to figure it out. thank you.

No. 1904[Reply]

Hellweek is now over.

Hellweek lasted from Monday, December 21 to Monday, December 28. Dozens of bans were issued.

You can also continue to discuss what you thought of it in this thread.

Things we plan on improving in the future, if we do this again:

  • Making it clear which boards will receive increased moderation, as there was some ambiguity and miscommunication regarding /b/.
  • Responding to reports more quickly. (Though all of them should have been responded to within at most 24 hours.)
  • Possibly providing some kind of public ban board so people can get an idea of what's being moderated.

Reports were very helpful to us. I also created a new mod panel that allowed us to quickly review and dismiss every single post made during hellweek, though this did get a bit backlogged.

The original announcement can be found below.




As discussed in Wednesday's townhall:

From Monday, December 21 to Monday, December 28, lolcow staff will begin an experimental "heavy moderation week". The purpose of this will be to gauge community reaction to moderation actions, and help determine if permanent policy changes should be made. The secondary purpose will be to hopefully encourage people to improve their quality of posts in the long term, without moderators having to step in.

Only posts made during this week will receive extra scrutiny. Posts made before or after hellweek are not eligible to be moderated more harshly than usual.

Since this is just an experiment, all bans issued during hellweek for rules that are not currently listed at https://lolcow.farm/rules will last no longer than 4 days. Most will likely be a lot shorter than 4 days, but that is the maximum.

Heavy moderation will primarily be enforced in /pt/, /snow/, and /g/. /b/ is mostly not receiving any additional scrutiny.

Moderation will be extremely subjective, and in some cases, may even appear arbitrary. I can't really provide a list of specific things we will be targeting, but here are some general ideas for what will likely be focused on:

  • Immaturity
  • Vendettas
  • Giving clear signs that you are new to the Internet, imageboards, or lolcow.farm
  • Blatantly injecting your own agenda into a discussion, especially when apropos of nothing
  • Self-focused or very off-topic derailing
  • Talking about yourself excessively
  • Use or overuse of specific words, phrases, or emotes
  • Unwarranted/emotional overreactions

Of course, this is pretty vague and not helpful, but that's pretty much the best I can do. You all will probably get the idea within the first few days.

Importantly, rules will change a little around samefagging during hellweek. Samefagging may be called out in specific instances. If you suspect it, feel free to report it.

But rules around identity will still exist as they currently are. If you aren't breaking a global rule, staff will never publicly out you or identify you in any way. If you're samefagging in a thread about someone you know, you may be banned and/or called out for samefagging or having a vendetta, but nothing about your identity will be revealed. So, vendettas won't be called out in cases where they would blatantly identify the person with the vendetta; that would be a non-public ban instead. It is impossible to call out many kinds of self-posts without outing someone's identity (like a cow complimenting themselves in their own /pt/ thread, for example), so those cases will always be handled privately, without public outing or ban messages. General self-posting will still be called out if it wouldn't reveal details about someone's identity.

People are encouraged to report many more posts than usual during hellweek. However, too many frivolous reports may result in yourself being banned and/or your report being called out, in extreme cases. I'd say for most people, it's fine to report as much as you want without fear of being banned: just don't report someone for arguing with you or insulting you, or something like that. Basically, just don't do this: https://lolcow.farm/pt/res/187661.html#196112

If you have any questions, you can post them in this thread. I may not answer all questions.

I have been ambiguous about my gender up until now, but to prevent confusion, I'd just like to inform everyone that I'm male. (Every other staff member is female.)

I prefer to preserve my anonymity as much as possible, but it feels wrong when someone assumes I'm female and to not deny it, so I think it is best to let everyone know.

>I kind of miss drama threads on /cgl/. Don't get me wrong, I know the farm exists but I'd rather discuss actual drama then having to sit through 500 replies of people going 'lol get a nosejob" and how 'ugly' everyone is. I guess that's just because I never really cared about discussing someone's looks? So the farm is kinda boring to me most of the time.

https://archive.rebeccablacktech.com/cgl/thread/S8773674#p8773850
>The farm is a cringefest most of the girls there are so insecure they need to shred every cow's physical appearance to pieces "lol she's so ugly and fat and her nose is so big and her eyebrows are terrible geez she's sooo haggard and old looking" also lots of ana chans calling everyone a fatty. It's painful and not fun anymore. I miss the drama here because it was simpler,

>Oh this so much, I'm average close to underweight but I usually don't care what strangers on the net think about my body type.
>But somehow these girls manage to get under my skin and make me hate myself, when it's not even about ME or anyone with similar body shape or weight. I cringe every time someone mentions the farm nowadays because of these people's unhealthy obsession with how other people look

>This. I lurked the farm a lot for a few months and I gotta say the posters are more cringeworthy than most of the cows. If you read the OT threads about mental health and feels, it's more than apparent that a lot of the people on there are batshit insane themselves and very miserable. I realized I was among that group and have been trying to improve my life and personality, it's really distressing to realize you fit all the stereotypes of a typical farmer. I just seriously hope more of them do before it's too late for me.

Certainly some valid points there.

Due to issues with people sometimes seeming to trust me more than other staff, from now on, I will also be using the Farmhand tripcode outside of /meta/ when making moderative posts (like "stop derailing" or "don't do that"). I'll only use the Admin tripcode in /meta/, or when dealing with general administrative or site tasks in other boards.

I've already used the trip myself sometimes in the past, but I will now use it all of the time. No one will be able to know if a particular "Farmhand" is me, a mod, or a janitor. Consider all Farmhand posts as decisions made or endorsed by me. If you have an issue with a staff decision, still complain about it here, but don't assume that I'm not responsible for the decision.

Welcome to the first lolcow.farm survey.

Each person should post in this thread only once. You can say whatever you want about the site, its users, or me. Please try to give serious and truthful answers though, since I will use this feedback to make decisions about rules and site changes. This isn't a "vote" or anything, but it will guide changes I make.

Only make a post if you are replying to the survey questions. Don't reply to anyone else's posts.

To answer, I'd much prefer if you use greentext for the questions. All you have to do is make sure you copy the > with each line. I would recommend you copy all the questions at once, paste them into your reply, then start answering each one. For example:

>1. When did you first start lurking or posting on lolcow?
7 months ago
>2. How did you find the site and where did you hear about it?
Yahoo teen chatroom

Please give answers as long or short as you like, unless the question specifies a length requirement. You may skip any of the questions if you don't want to answer them. Everything is optional. If for some reason you don't want to post your answers publicly, you can email your answers to me at lolcow.farm@gmail.com

>1. When did you first start lurking or posting on lolcow?
>2. How did you find the site and where did you hear about it?
>3. Describe lolcow in one sentence.

>6. Do you usually just read threads, or do you post more than once a week?
>7. Roughly how frequently do you check lolcow?
>8. Is lolcow the first imageboard you've lurked or posted on?
>9. Did you lurk or post on Stamina Rose, or its predecessor?
>10. What related communities (sites and specific sections/boards) were, or are, you in? You can include any sites you want here, but if you use(d) any of these sites you should probably list them: /cgl/, other 4chan boards, /cow/, other 8chan boards, Tumblr, PULL. Please list them in order of "most frequented" to "least frequented". So if you go on /cgl/ the most and Tumblr the least, it should be "/cgl/, ..., Tumblr".

>11. What do you think is the #1 issue facing lolcow?
>12. What do you like most about lolcow and/or its community?
>13. Which board do you read/use the most? And which do you like the most, if it's not the same board?
>14. Roughly what percentage of /pt/ threads do you actually read or follow?
>15. Roughly what percentage of /pt/ threads do you ignore or don't care about?
>16. Do you think opening /snow/ was a good idea?

>17. For the following statements, reply with one of "Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neutral/Don't Care, Agree, Strongly Agree". You can elaborate further if you want, but you don't have to.
>17a. Users from Tumblr and/or PULL are negatively impacting the site.
>17b. Users from /pol/ and/or 8chan are negatively impacting the site.
>17c. There are too many racial discussions and arguments in threads.
>17d. I believe freedom of speech is extremely important.
>17e. The opening of /g/, for girl-interest topics, was a good idea.
>17f. I am overall satisfied with most of the content on the site.
>17g. Post quality has been declining on average over time.
>17h. When rules are enforced, they are usually enforced fairly and without bias.
>17i. Rules should be enforced more harshly than they are now (stricter moderation, more bans, longer bans).

>18. Do you think self-posting should be banned in /pt/? How about /b/? Where should the line be drawn as to what is actually self-posting?
>19. Do you think any new boards should be added? Should any existing ones be removed?
>20. Are there specific behaviors, phrases, or types of post you're sick of seeing?
>21. Do you think samefagging is an issue? If so, in which boards is it causing issues? Do you think policies around samefagging should change, either by adding randomized unique poster IDs (not usernames) like some 4chan/8chan boards, or changing rules regarding samefagging, or both?
>22. Is there another website or community that you think we should follow in terms of rules or moderation? If so, which community, and which aspects should we consider adopting?
>23. Is there anything that you think lolcow staff have done poorly? If so, what is it, and how could it be changed or improved?

I've noticed that linked or embedded Youtube videos sometimes get deleted by their owners after they're posted here.

To help people save copies of videos, I've added a [DL] link under every Youtube embed (unless the embed is in the thread OP), and a [DL] link to the right of every Youtube link upon hovering, similar to the [Archived Copy] link.


If you use Chrome, clicking this should automatically download the video. Firefox does not allow cross-site downloads, so you will either have to right click the link and select "Save Link As", or click the link and press Ctrl+S after it loads.

After seeing several instances of posters deleting content many days or weeks after they posted it, I've decided to add a maximum time limit for deleting things.

This change is in effect now and applies retroactively.

After 4 hours have passed since making a post, you will be unable to delete the post. After 30 minutes have passed since making a thread, you will be unable to delete the thread.


Do not contact staff asking us to delete your thread or post after this time limit has passed, unless it violates one of the global rules. Do not make a post or send a report or email asking me to delete your thread or post.

There has never been a minimum wait time to delete things, and there still isn't one. That is, you can delete something immediately after you post it, if you want.

If you have any issues or questions with this, please use >>1134.

lolcow is forever
