So what's your beef with lolcow farm?
Nothing but respect for MY autistic auntie.
It's primarily an eceleb gossip site which is a topic I don't care for and there are better general discussion threads here.
I don't have a cow with lolcow.farm. I was banned there like a year and a half ago so I migrated over here once I learned this was a community. I still go there for the gossip, and I like how its /g/ and /ot/ are active and have more variety in conversation than here (however, that could be because we don't have as many users).
I like both sites, but I don't understand why most farmers hate CC.
Is it because we have migrants from /r9k/ and other imageboards here?
Went there once and noped the heck out after seeing a series of miserable topics and the general atmosphere.
>>26485>they think we're men larping (or at least the majority of us)>they think we think we're better because we don't go on gossip boards therefore uwu i'm better!~~~ (not true i am sure)>i've said ppl say we're prudes because the nsfw board here is slow
and the list goes on and on.
honestly i'm sure that many ppl here still go on lc. i avoid it because i think the place is really messy now compared to how it used to be in 2016
>>26490>they think we're men larping (or at least the majority of us)
I've seen this said in a few different places, it's ridiculous to think someone would be that bored. I've only seen a few posts that have caught my eye as being a man playing pretend.
CC users accusing other CC users as larpers.
I like that the onomatopoeia of stabbing is thot
Whenever I visit lc it feels like picking a booger, gross, but somehow satisfying. There's so much nitpicking, immaturity, and insecurity going on, I can't be bothered to engage, so I just lurk.
I used to be a farmer, but ultimately grew out of it. The place bothers me now, it's so depressing to visit. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but I found crystal cafe because of it and I like it here.
Tbh I don't think most people here have a beef with lc. There are some users that are very vocal against it but I'm sure it's because they were blocked or kicked out ( ex-farmhands, ex-mods etc) for fucking up . So they talk shit out of resentment.
bitches in that dumpster nitpick at the stoopidest shit (at-least for art youtubers which is the only community I am interested in)
check this threadhttps://lolcow.farm/snow/res/556178.html
bitches whining about the color of a sprite or some shit
it gives my inner cyber detective something to do. i dig up a lot of content that would be otherwise hard to find because i get intrigued. i don't care a lot about the people posted though.
people can be needlessly rude/stupid over there
other than that it's fine
Same, I just don't really give a shit about any of the cows. Sometimes I visit /ot/ but they are so needlessly aggressive, just look at some of the posts in the unpopular opinion threads. I prefer CC's more welcoming atmosphere, lolcow would probably call here a hugbox but I think users are still called out when they are completely in the wrong.
Sometimes I feel like someone who here is so nice and kind and friendly here would crosspost over to lc and say very mean things. As it’s made apparent many people here post there.
The very same person driven to do different things. Sad! But this gives me inspiration. I WILL be the nicest lc poster ever in the off topic boards and I will shower other posts with kindness!
It’s getting easier to spot cowposters here than men. Rude try hard pops up for no reason? Cow.
There's an unnecessary amount of vitriol and anger coming from the posters, otherwise I don't really have any opinions on it
I still go on there regularly but the atmosphere kind of puts me in a defensive and depressed mood. A lot of the posters there seem perpetually irate and don’t actually feel like having intelligent discussion, but it’s a gossip site so what should I expect?
Does anyone remember 2016 lolcow? Around the time where Ember Whann and Kadeecow were still popular? Before lc became “”radfem”” and boards like /cream/ and /manure/ still existed? I feel like the userbase has completely shifted since then.
Mods are so ban-happy, sometimes I genuinely have no idea what exactly I did wrong, when others write similar things without any consequences. They seem extremely biased. This week a pic of a beheaded woman stayed up for nearly 2(!) days - but in the meantime anons were banned for other, minor offences. The mods were called out in meta multiple times, but didn't do anything. Today I check again and this is how they respond: see pic
I have to admit that I post on lc daily and it's very easy to get sucked into trying to appear "tough".
I'm ESL and before finding lc I had no idea what things like "nasolabial folds" even are, they defintely shaped my view on how I see myself very negatively. But it's also kind of addictive. If you don't have anybody irl it's easy to just go there.
Being on cc does make me feel better (minus the obvious male larpers posting overly cutesy shit, this is creepy af. I always fear that I'm responding or opening up to some creep), but it's just sooo slow.
Also, there are way too many anas on both boards, which honestly really does "trigger" me… Talking about EDs is fine of course, but being overly nitpicky and advise or even try to push others to also follow your >1000cal diet is a no-go.
Let's see how it changes once there's a new admin. I started visiting because of Kota and all the other gaijin in Japan, but it's no longer what it once was.
Samefag, but since I noticed just now that people adressed the larping thing above, I wanted to add something:
Firstly, unrelated but>>26488
/b/ and /feels/ are also unorganized. Everybody is just making their own little thread for every tiny unimportant thing and then they die after less than 10 posts. That's so annoying. Is there a way to change that?
And secondly>>26493>I like that the onomatopoeia of stabbing is thot>stoopidest>Sad! But this gives me inspiration. I WILL be the nicest lc poster ever in the off topic boards and I will shower other posts with kindness!>Before lc became “”radfem””
These are just some of the things that simply sound suspicious. Stabbing is thot (hot?), typing uwu style, being overly affectionate and accusing lc of being radfem just comes across as either weird, creepy or downright male. It's what men imagine their perfect idea of a nerdy, anime-loving girl to be: Perverted, but also cute and always overly sweet to others (e.g. those anime internet hug gifs/pics) and of course being against evil feminists.
Just look at the "How to be more feminine"-thread: instead of giving real, good and useful advice, people wrote ponytails are bad, wearing pigtails will make you look more girly. Normal adult women can't wear pigtails! That just sounds super fetishy…
Thot is slang that means "that ho over there," it has nothing to do with hotness… I didn't get any male vibes from that post but if you think someone is a man just report their posts and mods can check post history to see if they're consistently posting stuff that looks like a man wrote it (trolling, only posting politics, being tone deaf and dickish to people who are venting) and their posts will get deleted if they look sufficiently manish.
>>26479>Why don't you spend your free time making yourself feel miserable?
Why so paranoid? I've known girls irl who would act overly affectionate at times, or type uwu style in some silly fashion.
>(e.g. those anime internet hug gifs/pics)
What about the banners? Is the whole site a larp fest then down from the very top?
But that "how to be more feminine" thread was one of the few times I've felt there were larpers.
I must also add that the girls who did that irl were weebs or had anime/manga as a hobby at least. Which is probable people like that are here since this is an imageboard.
It's hard for me to tell the difference between men larping as cute anime girls and real girls who are awkward and possibly on the autism spectrum that emulate cute anime girl behavior. But I didn't really get man vibes from that thread, I got more of the sense it was well intentioned but not very good advice from awkward girls who are still trying to figure those things out themselves. (And I love all the cute anime banners and aesthetics here myself lol.)
The one thing I wish CC wouldn't do is adopt /r9k/ memes like tendies and pretty princesses. I get that it can be funny but this isn't /r9k/ and people really shouldn't be trying to emulate such a misogynistic place anyways. It attracts attention from robots too.
I can tell you right now that the only reason I'm not diagnosed as autistic is because I'm too old (exact words).
Used to be really concerned that I'd get kicked out in -5 seconds, but it really is fine. The mods know their own.
I could understand if people here thought I give off weird vibes, though.
I remeber those days. I started using lolcow that year and stopped when the original admin left. Then I came back and thought "hey this new girl isn't that bad". Now I don't know who's in charge but everything's different, there are people complaining about using slurs and the ana-chan threads are obvious self-posting. Not even the Aly threads are good anymore…
Still go on it regularly but it's honestly such a shitshow that I hardly post now. I'm a bit sad to hear they're looking for a new admin already and they always looking for farmhands but I guess very few people want to actually bother with the site anymore.
I check snow and will look at /ot/ but the atmosphere in it just gets worse and worse. /g/ is slow and not very fun to read anymore either. /pt/ isn't interesting anymore. Who knows, maybe whoever the new admin will be will be able to pick the site back off the ground but the userbase is so shit now and the atmoshpere has changed so much that current admin probably has really slim pickings so I don't have much hope.
>>26516>>Before lc became 'radfem'
Yessss. Lc used to be good now its getting overrun by them. I made a similar comment on the unpopular thread I think and someone was like "Are you trying to say having men here made it better!!!1111" I didn't specifically say that but around the time where men was 'accepted' it wasn't garbage LOL so I guess that question pretty much answers itself. People always complain about girls not having their own websites but when we do they all turn out the same (hopefully cc doesn't end up like that though.. I like you girls.)
I started using lolcow that year too. There's also constant racebaiting now. So much annoying behavior that would've probably been condemned on the old lc.
>Not even the Aly threads are good anymore…
Wow, I almost forgot about her. She used to be on the front page of /snow/ like every day a couple years ago. None of the cows there now interest me much anymore besides a select few.>>26550
The "unpopular opinion" thread should just be changed to the "infighting" thread lmao. And agreed, the man-hate thread is a cringy radfem circlejerk as well. When the first one popped up, I actually thought it was just an inside joke/troll thread to deter the wave of robots that had been "raiding" lc at that time.
And if you offer any dissenting opinion, you will get called a "male poster" or be accused of being a robot.
I still regularly go on lolcow but I've never been interested in the gossip there (except for like 2 youtubers). I enjoy a lot of the discussions and threads but yeah there's also a lot of hostility and an overall bad vibe surrounding a lot of the site. You can just tell so many users on there are angry and depressed for no reason, they get in the most stupidest fights imaginable. The unpopular opinions thread is a key example of this, someone always has to derail the convo with talks about race that's been brought up a million times before. The man heating thread is so fucking cringe too lol, I can barely even glance at a few posts from that thread. So like any discussion site you'll get a ton of stupidity but there's some nice stuff every once in a while.
This. Why do we have to copy so many things that /r9k/ does? We can do better then that.
I wish I was better at drawing so I could make something new. Even if it's bad, at least it's not the same stuff we see in other places all the time.
Start wanting it badly enough to get practicing
you say radfem as if wanting rights is a bad thing
an imageboard isn't exactly the place to go if you actually want rights anon.
>>26542>people really shouldn't be trying to emulate such a misogynistic place
This. Thank you anon.
So it should be off-limits to discuss then? Why shouldn't we talk about our frustrations on a website that has a mostly female userbase? It's the only imageboard with a majority female userbase, we should be able to vent. The only people I can imagine who would have a problem with that are men and "traditional women" or whatever they call doormats these days.
They can discuss what they want but they should contain it in one thread instead of seeping through the other ones. You literally can't say shit without someone somehow making it about their hatred of men. For people who supposedly hate men they sure do seem to obsessively talk about them all the time.
I’m not a tradthot or anything like that, but isn’t making sweeping generalizations about men tantamount to men making sweeping generalizations about women? Aren’t they both equally as annoying and unproductive? I see some of the same tactics in those man-hate threads as I do in, say, MGTOW circles.
They act the exact same way as the men they complain about which makes it that much funnier/sadder
You all fail to mention that the backlash from women who can't bear to see their precious men slighted is far greater than the lone, few posts that make generalizations about men (by anonettes that are going to be perfectly civil to men irl, even when talking about them with their friends).
>>26967>>backlash from women who can't bear to see their precious men slighted
See this is exactly other girls can't say shit about this. You guys scream that men are taking away your voices etc but you do the samething to other girls who don't agree with you. Who are you real fighting for
The radical feminists are fighting to destroy the white race and are working for (((soros))) my fellow girls!
Women are the master race and are superior to every other race
Most male post I have ever seen in my life
I just feel bad making fun of other girls and nitpicking everything about them. No real beef here just like a comfier place to chitchat anonymously with other girls/women that are nerds.
The man-hate threads are a guilty pleasure of mine, there aren't that many places where you can criticize men in a female space. The threads are very echo-chambery though, I wouldn't recommend staying there for too long for the same reason I wouldn't recommend becoming a regular at /pol/.
If your from lolcow please dont come here go back to lolcow please
Come on anon, the site was advertised on lolcow in the past, most anons from there aren't that bad. Not to mention both of the non-drama boards are gross dumpster fires.
you're just doing what you're being criticized about. i've also seen this argument a few times and it's always the sweet innocent manhating minority against the big bad evil handmaidens/tradthots/whatever insult.
What I don't like about the site is the cult mentality they have – and it has been mentioned by other anons – more specifically this double standard for users and cows. They seem to be very supportive and defend each other, but if it's about cows aka women they don't like they treat them as if they aren't human. Not to mention that part of the userbase is full of lolcows themselves, /ot/ is proof for that.
I would sage but it doesn't post otherwise
What have the women who've complained about men done to them? What have they done to the women who defend men?
this>>27033>implying tradthots and handmaidens and doormats don't exist
you're stupid af if you think doormats aren't completely evangelical about being doormats
the layout of the site is ugly and the girls over there can be needlessly bitter and rude. i've gotten the feeling that it's fully of pseudo stacies trying to live out their high-school bully phase by obsessing over other people's business.
that being said i've also gotten some decent advice over there and the ratio of good posts to bad vs…other chans is high
also i really only browse /ot/ and /g/
nah, they’re not the same. men have multiple subreddits, boards and websites dedicated to whining about women, and these sites will continue to exist independent of whether or not the man-hating thread exists.
Y'all complain about man hating anons all over there but I've never seen any outside the thread for it. Is it really that bad, I dont think so ? With this said I only go there once it twice a month to lurk
There's too much a-logging going on and a lot of posts reek of "ugh at least I'm better than this cow".
Internet drama used to be much more amusing when people just laughed about stupid people doing stupid things instead of comparing themselves to them and using trainwrecks who broadcast their crazy lives to the internet to feel better about themselves.
Arent 80% of the beautiful people who post here cross-posters from there?
Don’t attack my posters from laugh.chicken plz
Please abscond yourself from sapphire.snack-bar, friend.
I was banned from giggle.bovine years ago and only lurk there now, checkmate.
How old is that website though? wasn't it barely made in 2016 or something?
may i ask why you were banned?
If you want me to leave, then why do you refer to me as "friend"? In emerald.eatery we are all friends
CC has a different culture from LC, this takes two threads to tistinguish.
Please retain your snicker.serpent behavior outside the aventurine.automat space.t. not a mod, just an autist
I just found a "robot containment" thread on lc and women there seem to act nicer to incels than to other women. Not surprising, but somehow sad.
People here are even more sympathetic to men than on lc. Even sadder to imagine how'd that'd be on here
The website is dedicated to being a shitty person.
What? Are you talking about the man-hate thread? The actual containment one hasn't been active in years. Men are completely banned on both places now, anon.
I'd also argue their man-hate thread is more passionate than ours.
…but so is their woman-hate, and it's site wide.
why is Amanda Seyfried part of the theme and why so many references to her? I dont go on lc that often so I dont get it.
Someone in the celebrity cow thread in /ot/ kept sperging about her being a diva without much evidence, complaining about her wrinkly hands (lol), and claiming to be her mua iirc. She got banned several times but just kept coming back to talk about her, so mods made a joke out of it.
No, the containment threads. I was skimming through the catalog and found it, it's true the newest one was 3 years ago.
What the fuck is going on over there? Admin is AWOL, there seems to be almost no mods left and gore and porn is left up for almost 12 hours. No one's heard back from the mod/admin applications either.
why not just start a new website at this point? Does anyone remember SR? kek
anons have been trying to create a new chan actually. The fucked up thing is, even though admin and farmhands have been completely absent from the complaints threads on /meta/, posts about creating a new website are being deleted.
Like it's genuinely fucked how admin and the mods can't run a website but also don't allow the users to migrate to another.
I think I saw an active mod yesterday, they were responding to a thread in /snow/ if i remember correctly.
why you guys don't talk about it here so you can email each other to create the new website?
Is it true they ban people for no reason?
theyre racist, fuck em
It's nice that they paid for a better server out of pocket tbh. I hope the new admin is more hands-on than the last one. It sounds like good news to me so far.
good luck to their new admin, she will need it. the comm is never
with respect the user demographic on chucklepig to put it bluntly is quite dumb (not saging simple "lol" posts, lots of in-fighting and posts accusing others of "blogposting", paranoia that anons are a cow), so I can understand the mods being more ban crazy. I don't post there much and in a span of 2 weeks I've been accused of being a cow (be it sarcastically or not) for mundane posts.
It's true. It's not a contribution, threads are overrun with posts like this one or "underrated comment", and farmers are generally incapable of reading simple instructions as evident by the rules being plastered everywhere while still going ignored.I've started to appreciate PULL more, to be honest. I've been lurking for years and posting rarely but I like that their voting system eliminates posts like pic related. PULLtards are mostly weebs and teens but accounts force them to be less spergy and samefaggy. There's a ton of issues with the immaturity and willingness to excuse snowflakey shit because a lot of them share flake traits, but it's a fresh breath of air compared to the constant infighting and derailing on lolcow.
I have my fair share of posts there, but 90% are in /ot/ or /g/. Haven't really posted there except for meta in several months tbqf.
Most of the active threads are for people who aren't even "cows" at this point.>>26479>they don't see the "cows" as human to the point they become a hivemind and nitpick over the PETTIEST shit>the most active threads atm are super cringe to read because all the subjects are FAT, HAVE INGROWN HAIRS, TOO SKINNY, DOING IT BECAUSE IT'S IN (as if people cant change their style or tastes as they age)… you name it (aka. heavy nitpick) which makes it look like anons are jelly asf>mods are ban happy (that is not their fault because the community makes them paranoid and demands some sort of action for absolutely no reason otherwise "staff is gone", i feel sorry for them)>obvious newfags trying to act like oldfags (happens in every chan ever, but it's painful obvious there)>90% of them are rude and obnoxious for no reason because that's board culture I guess. If you don't cuss and treat people like crap when calling them out, you're an exception. people here tend to be nicer in comparision which makes them think we're all uwu cute fake>most of them are paranoid to the point of thinking even the staff has a vendetta of if someone disagrees with the majority = they're a cow. "hi _________". You can't disagree with anyone. If you do, you're a ~~whiteknight~ uwu !!!!>boards are messy as fuck. due to paranoia ("it's just to keep an archive", "to have evidence", etc) nothing ever gets deleted, even clear vendettas that should not be there. the catalg are super hard to navigate if they're about an infamous person because you have 789837247237978 threads to read and 80% of the content is BS. if you ask someone for the tldr they will eat you alive, so better waste 50 hours skimming through that shit than asking a question in a thread>most of them think they're better people than 99% of the rest of the internet (everyone else is a pullfag, handmaiden, miner = tranny, etc)>most of the userbase reeks of underage nowadays. that was NOT the case when the chan was brought to life. most users seemed 18+>everyone claims to have some sort of mental ilness, just go to /ot/ and you will see that. and they have the guts to criticize PULLtards~ they think their shit doesn't stink.>can't remember exacly what was the reason but about 2 years ago the website was going to shit (I think people were spreading the rumour that Joshua M was running the site and would out people? If anyone remembers this, please enlighten me) which cases TONS OF PEOPLE to start apologizing in threads saying they really didn't mean to say what they did because of X, Y, Z reason and that they were sorry uwu~~ so you shit on people for ages and when you're afraid of being dox'd, you realize you were a piece of shit? ok.
I still lurk every now and then and I don't ever remember being banned by a staff member except for maybe 1 or 2 times for just a day for infighting. I think the staff/admins are usually good and they try their best, but the userbase is wayyy too demanding and they're NEVER okay or happy. Admins never last long there because they're shitty and treat them like crap if they take a while to respond. The fact that several of them are paranoid doesn't help either, they always think the admins have some type of agenda. I enjoy freedom of speech in general and I do like reading about Onion and some of the other most famous "cows", but that chan in such a bad state that it should be nuked for good and never brought back for their own sake.
The userbase has become the biggest cow EVER.
That summary pretty much sums it up perfectly. But I’m starting to think the “Hi _____ (cow)” is usually more of a inside-joke/meme than actual paranoia. I say that because of how often its posted even for inane stuff (I find it funny though).
thanks anon, I was there since pretty much the start so it's easy to see what's changed. Maybe you're right that some see it as in inside joke, but users were doing it soooooo fucking often that the staff decided to make a rule against it, so I guess they do take it seriously
>>29615>nothing ever gets deleted
In the /ot/ and maybe /g/ boards, they should delete the older "editions" of threads like vents, confessions, celebricows once they start a new one because no one goes to read locked threads from months, years ago.
Just like PULL is full of aspiring snowflakes, lolcow is full of angry, bitter vendetta-chans.
The staff paranoia is ridiculous. They're trannies! They're men! They're cows! They're camgirls! At least anonymous staff is better than on PULL where that koreaboo mod gets extremely offended all the time and their personal bias shows through, I can't take her seriously for that reason and would feel the urge to bait her if she ever told me off. They should have mod accounts separate from user accounts.>>29618
I disagree. Outings like Mystery.jpg's would've been way less funny without the intense whining in "personal" threads directly contradicting what she posted on the drama boards. I cannot even imagine what Spoony's history would've looked like.
I think threads with extreme samefagging and vendetta issues and constant sperging should get post IDs. Examples would be Joy Sparkles who is a massive cow but her thread is ruined by the same idiots ban evading to spew facebook-tier memes and walls of text, or the Anisa thread which probably has around 4 posters overall, Lola Tyrell who I expected to be locked a long time ago, and so on.
I don't understand the "mods aren't active" complaints at all
, /meta/ has been left in shambles but I constantly see Farmhand posts and redtext on pt and snow. /meta/ is just swamped with complaints that should just be reports instead and every time a Farmhand replies they're met with more reeeing.
Another thing that could be taken from PULL is the subforum for new threads so that the mods have to approve a new subject before it goes public.
Haven’t been here long and have been lurking lolcow for even less time, but it got me thinking. I don’t have active beef, but seeing the culture and overall tone of a gossip site has made me aware of what I could become if I don’t actively choose to brush things off and try to see the humanity in even the milkiest people. I went to some threads where I was relieved to see other people taking issue with things I have issue with as well, only to be put off by how hard they were going and unfair they were being. Good criticism doesn’t derive from obsessive fault-finding and an exaggerated negative bias, you get closer to the ‘truth’ with due diligence.
I’m sure I’ll go back from time to time just to see what the people willing to do the legwork have brought in, but I’m going to limit my exposure to keep my head above water, since that kind of negativity can be addicting. I’m very careful not to use contempt as fuel where my self-esteem should be.
>>29634>I don't understand the "mods aren't active" complaints at all
Well duh, most of us notice that the mods are active on lolcow, it's just that some of their priorities are fucked (which is why farmers were trying to abandon lolcow and create a new chan).
Basically, while there was gore up for 8 hours on /ot/ farmhands were banning people on /pt/ and /snow/ for nitpicking. Several anons reported the issue but farmhands didn't care. And guess what, farmhands apologized but then the same thing happened 3 times again in the same month.
I don't know how it works on lolcow but as far as I know on other chans, many times staff members only have moderation rights to certain boards. Maybe the people being active in the gossip boards don't take care of /ot/ or /g/, they're not global mods… hence why you guys saw farmhands being active but gore shit in other threads. Just my 2 cents since leaving gore up for hours and banning people for other reasons doesn't make sense.
I was permabanned for "ban evading" even though it was the first and only time I'd ever been banned.
Do you have a dynamic IP or VPN?
No VPN. Even if I change my IP on my phone I can't ban evade. I'm not smart enough with these things to know what I could do to trick a new IP into not knowing I'm banned.
Moderation is EXTREMELY bad on cc.
Email them, it means you were assigned an IP that was previously used by someone who got a permaban. They fix it if you send a screenshot of the ban.
Source: Happened to me, got it fixed
No, I think they decided I was a person they'd banned before who was evading. I do understand how my post could have been misunderstood looking back on it. There's no point in going "nuh-uh it's not me" so I gave up after my one e-mail got ignored.
>>29748>tfw have ban evaded on lolcow by phone posting without getting caught
Tell me I'm cool.
maybee you can try a mac scrambler as well with a vpn…idk
holly brown is the only cool cow I was directed to say this here by someone
Holly Brown and [insert random instagram ho with too much PS] deserve to win best cow of the year
these planters on giggle.bovine are attacking my friends on crystal.cafehttps://lolcow.farm/ot/res/354915.html
but I couldn't help but laugh at the post saying >how can all this shit happen on a site that has like 5 posts per day
in response to a summary of the discord stuff.
kek i saw this thread
i think it would be best not to give them attention, they just want a petty fight
I've read the thread as well. I don't know how a site dedicated to gossip can feel superior to anyone. I would rather take the autism and anime of here to the angry atmosphere of lolcow.
I think it's meant to imply the poster of that reply is one of the nobf anons herself
If 365451 is reading this;
