As a response to recurring complaints about staff and report handling, we've made a decision. As most of you don't know, I inherited lolcow not after the first Admin's escape but after the next Admin following that, who also hired the current staff. Because I didn't want to step on her feet, I didn't take actions the way I should've. As of today, we've removed all staff hired by the second admin.

Please apply here if you'd like to be a Farmhand.



I will also address any complaints, comments, and questions you may have in a Townhall chat next week.

No. 4228

wow, that's some news. good luck with the new recruitment drive.

please don't remod any of the people that first admin came back and helped to remove (around the time of keekweek), because there were complaints about them too.

Sent one in, sorry admin-sama if it seems jumbled, it was awkward doing that on my phone.
Good luck to everyone applying, I'm excited to see some of the love for the site coming soon.

Hey can I get some idea what is happening in the lilypichu thread? I know you don't ban people for differing opinions in a thread but that thread is full of what I'm assuming is trolling, I don't know if people have been banned or if you just abandoned it.
I understand if it's the latter, but it's just odd that it's been like that so long.

>I know you don't ban people for differing opinions in a thread
The new mods have been doing this forever. I got banned twice for posting copypasta. No lulz allowed

No. 4223

Is it possible to either tag all of Ember and Emily's self posts again or just straight up nuke their threads and make mentioning them bannable again?
All they do is take over the thread and force as much drama as they can to keep the thread going. Fun as they are to discuss they're too obsessed with their 'infamy' and ruin everything

the venus thread is getting cancerous again. one anon? maybe two? is just shitting it up attacking other anons and trying to drag everyone into a tinfoil hat conspiracy because two posters days apart both used the phrase 'reaching'. it's always as nitpicky and dry as the dakota thread as it is, but it's just becoming a cesspool

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.

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.

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.

Thank you for adding the "hide chat" function, but there still seems to be an issue while browsing /pt. On ios my phone completely freezes, and my phone is updated etc. no issue browsing the other boards, or other sites. Could you look into it?

No. 4214

I'd really love if you could steal some things from catalog.neet.tv for the catalog, primarily the pinning (with unread replies reporting) and hiding of threads.
Also, the rules page doesn't have the complete boards listing, and /ot/ is /b/.
I'd also think it might be nice to link the info page next to the rules, and would like to see it updated with a nice gif (like the one for reporting) for saging, as well as a statement suggesting it be used for offtopic/blogposty posts. New users seem to really struggle with it, I'm probably being optimistic but maybe that would help.

Someone asked about posting statistics.

Here's a line graph of all posts per week for /pt/ up until today. As you can see, post rate has been increasingly pretty steadily.

The post below is the same graph for /b/.

I think it's about interpretation of the word "worst". I think it lead to votes going to useless cows and also to high-drama, prominent cows.

What's it like running an active community with a lot of interesting topics / people? Is it satisfying to watch it grow etc?

***UPDATE***
Town Hall will be held at 6 pm CST
(sorry for the inconvenience; if anyone shows up at 4 we can just watch YouTube videos for a while)

Our first Town Hall meeting since the departure of OG admin-sama

Our Farmhands will be there and the plan is to discuss any main concerns and ideas that farmers have. One topic of discussion will be the possible removal of the /manure/ board so if you have an opinion on this matter then try to attend. Additionally, we will elucidate recent site events of interest.

The meeting will be at http://cytu.be/r/lolcowTownHall
This Thursday, October 6th at 4 pm 6 pm Central
