How do we draw more people to the site without attracting moids?
I would say promote this website in female-only Discord servers, but I don’t even think those are safe from… them.
I would join if this existed, but I can't make one because I have no clue how Discord works. We'd need to keep all of the chats private until users were verified though. I don't want men having access to anything we post in case they try to sneak in.
I've also heard that men sometimes sneak into places like these using their girlfriends' accounts. Is anyone willing to make a server specifically for femcels/fembots/fa women so this doesn't happen?
I don't know how reddit works but are there female only boards to post on? I doubt we can trust those.
I advertised in a bathroom at my uni.
They swing a certain way, so you'll run into a lot of "MA'AM"s that way. They do have a femcels board.
Why would you want others to live this life? You should be actively making sure people avoid this site
But this site is so nice yet so inactive :(
I agree with >>2490
. I don't have much of a life. And posting here sometimes feels like I'm yelling at the wind. I like imageboards. I just hate the male dominated ones. I just don't like how they talk about women, so hostile and arrogant. I've seen threads get derailed by incels.
This site is nicer than lolcow. I wish it was more active too :( Y’all have great advice
I've never been I've seen it namedrop all the time.
How do you like it?
Today was this first time I went to lolcow.omg. for a lack of a better word that place seems ugly? Is it nothing but call out posts?
I’m not >>2506
but I usually stay away from those boards. /ot/, /g/, and /m/ are the only tolerable ones.
lolcow has some worthwhile threads in /g/ /ot/ and /m/. I usually go on /g/ to ask for advice but since it’s very slow I rarely get responses. /ot/ is very active but is dominated by radfems/gender crit/pink pilled anons… every post eventually turns political with instigators fighting and clogging the threads, and then there are mean anons who think you’re a larping “Scrote” if you go against their echo chamber. Then there’s /pt/ and /snow/ which nitpicks and critiques internet nobodies, which I find is a waste of time so I never go on there. Ironically, that is how I found lolcow; I used to follow Venus Angelic’s drama on PULL.
I actually heard about this site from an anon on /fit/, when I was asking for some exercise advice there. This place seems great, but also kinda dead? Or is it just slow?
It's slow but at times there a small spurts in activity. I've only been lurking here for a few months, so maybe I don't know where all the popular girls actually hang out.
>How do we draw more people to the site without attracting moids?
promote the site on either a discord server you feel totally safe in that is small in population size, or share with your online friends via DMs.
also, if people are reluctant to visit, show them some cool stuff and go like "oh i got this from a site called crystal.cafe"
oh yah (this is gonnna sound weird) but if you search for the topics we discuss on this site on Instagram and them DM those accounts you might get some more hits
I just found out about it on /v/. I'm looking forward to having a place like this to poke around.
why would you want a server with femcels and fembots
would be a toxic fiesta
IMO discord servers are always a bad idea, unless its with personal friends you know. Even if you "confirm" everyones identity it doesnt stop the drama that will always inevitably happen. Now you have to deal with server admins and mods and hope they arent power tripping assholes. And all text conversations are essentially recorded on Discord and anybody that joins the server can scroll through all of the messages, which can lead to doxing if you are accidently posting too much personal information because you are using a name now.
I prefer anonymous posting myself.
we can start by not actually trying to attract their attention but who actually cares
Is this imageboard safe from trannies?
Frankly, not even the discord server where verification was needed to join was safe from them, or men for that matter. You're posting amongst them both in even greater numbers here.
The safest way is word of mouth, but it's also the slowest AND is not 100% male proof.
While growing the community would be nice I'd rather have a slow board than an active board that has more male shitposting than any sane post.
I agree. We should do nothing and let people find this site on their own. If we advertise this site its bound to attract males since they make up like 80% of the internet.
As long as the posts are good slowness shouldn't be a problem. Its not like crystal.cafe is dying.
You're probably joking but actually this and GenderCritical. CC is one of the few sites allowing radfem opinions without censorship. Other site platforms regularly delete radfem content with no warning. Lolcow used to get recommended on GC before they killed radfem content. GC even had an 8chan board for a bit.
If admin would add a radfem board it would probably attract a lot more users to come here. Mumsnet is too heavily moderated to post freely about radfem things: they make users use preferred pronouns, regularly remove threads, and a lot of popular users have been banned. Reddit is 99% disgusting porn and will probably bow to trans terrorist pressure eventually and quarantine/delete GC. The 8chan board is already gone of course.
As far as I can tell, GC has a large population of right wing dudes who are only there cuz they like to dunk on trannies. I doubt advertising over there is a good idea… I don't want a bunch of reddit incels to flood the board.
Having a radfem board is unironically a good idea. It can act like a containment center for all of the “are transgenders allowed on here” threads that refuse to die. Also I’d love to see a thread about feminism that doesn’t devolve into arguments about the death of human larvae, because feminism is only about that desu.
Reddit advertising is a bad idea because (as someone who has an account and still browses) redditors in general are the scum of the internet who get off on how “edgy” and “unpopular” their basic mainstream critiques on society are. We don’t need that sort of negativity here
I'm not sure how cross-site promotion would work, or what different sites' rules concerning it are, but would asherahsgarden.net be a good place? I sometimes post there and figured a few people here might post there as well. Its activity level is about the same as ours, maybe a little less active.
I sometimes see women on 4chan and they seem nice, but I'm not sure if I should post C.C. link there. Yesterday I was talking with one on /v/, but I think the risk is too big.
Too bad, I really wanted them here.
From personal experience, just go to any discord that's main focus is either:
2. Animal Crossing
about 70 to 80 percent of those discord populations is female
this site literally gets posted to 4chan /pol/ (where I came from 5 mins ago), it's only a matter of time before it just becomes a bunch of guys larping as girls because they've got nothing better to do with their lives
It's already happened time and time again, I resent to inform you. You wouldn't believe the frequency at which we're mentioned by boys (who "totally hate women", remember) on /r9k/.
maybe on similar sites? like some of the chiller forums on myproana, yes they have eds but they have good aesthetics and are very funny.
Not gonna happen, Im willing to bet over 25% of the posts on this site are dudes, some more convincing than others. And thats besides all the posts that get deleted and I never see.
I also see this place mentioned a lot in mostly male spaces.
I would bet money that over 2/3s of posters are already men
>>2714>they hate us
<here's a screenshot full of them asking how to date us
It was the same guy spamming all those threads, and if you looked at any of them (or that board in general) for 5 minutes, you would see what disgusting profligates the posters really are. These aren’t wholesome men who just want a relationship. These are men who believe that women are inferior, don’t deserve rights, shouldn’t have jobs, should be raped/killed, and exist for the sole purpose of amusing men. If they ever managed to get into a relationship, it would be horrifically abusive.
let it grow organically.
Can you give me any examples of an image board that has a rule that says no women allowed?
if legbeard websites and women only gyms bother you so much, don't go to them
lolcow seemed to be libfem to me and also they have too much threads about shit like celebrities
I'm certain wizchan has lost the will to care about anyone posting anything, even if you give yourself away.
is there any sites like this but on the deepweb, onion only?
Maybe ask for their discord, talk to them over voice, and then mention CC?
Word of mouth. There’s no guarantee that some handmaiden won’t tell a group of guys about us of clout but it’s the only way to avoid (additional) male traffic and half-assed raids
most lolcow users come across as very rad fem/TERFy and hate trans cows>>2483
male users will try to infiltrate and brigade when this site becomes more popular. I really don’t think we can do anything unfortunately
I mean, do miners really have to advertise this site? we all know about wizchan from somewhere. if someone lurks imageboards and places like the farms, they’ll probably find out and be interested
And they are right.
Because trans isn't the same as being a woman.
LC has a history of baiting people and making them post personal information that trickles into real life, I suggest we don't invite them in, it could cause serious damage
let the gc refugees come from lolcow
my bf told me about this site, he said i might enjoy it lol so word of mouth?
If just some of us tried to invite some girls we chat to here it would grow.
Mod sama said not to shill the board.
I feel like if it got a little more active it would draw some more people but more people means shitter interactions.
Yea thats the only way this place will grow and have a steady stream of traffic. Everything "innocent" eventually gets "defiled". It's an anonymous board and the internet what else do we expect through the screen to happen? Anything can happen! School shootings, wars, murder, robberies, constitutional racism, exploiting the regular joe happen everyday, everywhere. And those aren't the only horrible things that happen in this world. Sorry went a bit off. Where were we?
