No. 3

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

Just kidding I love you

No. 4

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

No. 5

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.

No. 6

Looking into it.

No. 7


No. 8

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.

No. 9

Looks gr8
thx m8

No. 10

Sweet beans, thank you! You are my favorite admin.

No. 11

This or auto-noko

No. 12

Added autonoko as well as automatic quick reply. Tell me how you guys feel about the quick reply.

No. 13

Nice. What activates the quick reply?

No. 14

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

A lot of the current chan settings should be similar to 4chan's default stuff.

No. 15

Okay, yeah. works.

No. 16


No. 17


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. 18

Rotating banners would be ideal

No. 19

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. 20

Image dimensions? I might try my hand at it.

Also thank you Admin <3

No. 21

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

No. 22

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. 23

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. 24

Its looking really great.

No. 25

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. 26

Can we have a sticky of everything PT?

No. 27

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.

No. 28

File: 1403580183158.jpg (203.53 KB, 1280x960, 1388457998419.jpg)

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. 29

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. 30

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. 31

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. 32

Performance issues should be resolved now.

No. 33

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. 34

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. 35

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. 36

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

No. 37

video embed maybe?

No. 38

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. 39

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.

No. 40

File: 1403647543988.jpg (26.91 KB, 271x294, habbening.jpg)

Changed some more things. Tell me if it keeps happening.

Clear your browser caches for this site first, though.

No. 41

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. 42

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. 43

Unichan stylesheet maybe?

No. 44

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. 45

Can we have a kawaii design in an ironical way?

No. 46

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. :)

No. 47

Done. I may customize the default spoiler pic soon as well.


No. 48

What should we call you adminsama?

No. 53

My pleasure. ♥

I will do my best to keep this chan alive and well.

No. 54

A-Admin senpai how can we bring more people here?

No. 55

Thank you admin. This board is great, better than stamina actually. No more captcha, linked replies, embedded vids. I love it!

Long live admin!

No. 56

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.

No. 57

Efagz is pretty much dead since years, it is a livejournal.

No. 58

Dude, efagz isn't dead–I'm a member there, there's still regular posting.

No. 59

Also a member there, it's been pretty slow lately, but definitely not 'dead'

No. 60

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. 61

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. 62

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

No. 63

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. 64

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. 65

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. 66


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. 67

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. 68


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. 69

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. 70


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. 71

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. 72

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. 73

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. 74

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.

No. 75

I use Chrome too but have never had this problem.

No. 76

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. 77

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.

No. 78

Okay, I got it again a couple of times today. Pic related.

No. 79

I've had the same problem where it says the page won't open. It's happened to me twice today. I am on my iPod so I'm using safari.

No. 80

Thanks, looking into it.

No. 81

I don't even use Chrome but the site got loading issues for me sometimes too.

No. 82

For some reason whenever I click on pictures, instead of expanding they open up in a new tab?

No. 83

Small bug. Will fix soon.

No. 84

Should be fixed now.

No. 85

Please tell me if you get an error like this in Chrome or Firefox from this point onward. I changed a few things.

No. 86

Is there a hide thread feature?

3 sticky threads is too much for me to handle.

No. 87

I'm constantly getting a "Your request looks automated, post discarded" error and can't figure out what's flagging it.

No. 88

You can now hide posts and images. Above each image is a (hide) button, and to the left of that you can select [-] and [+] to hide or unhide a thread. I've also unstickied one of the threads.

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

No. 89

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. 90

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.

No. 91

Can you put in a button to skip to the bottom of the thread?
It gets a little frustrating having to scroll constantly on my iPad.

No. 92

This would be a god send, admin-sempai

No. 93

Added. There is now a down arrow that will remain in the bottom right corner of your screen. It will fade out when you're at the bottom and will be clickable when you're not.

No. 94

Oh gosh :3
The admin listened to me. I feel so special.
Thank you

No. 95

Apologies for the outage today. Everyone should be able to post now.

No. 96

Site is telling me to "get out." Did I fuck up?

No. 97

Admin is testing some things right now as it seems.

No. 98

Thanks. I really like you, Admin-sempai…I felt bad.


No. 99

Sorry about that. I was indeed testing something so I could properly move the incelblogger thread to /b/. The "get out" message was not for you or anyone else to see.

Should be fixed now.

No. 100

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.

No. 101

i was wandering what format do the videos play in? i converted a .flv video to .mp4 and the site didn't recognize either extension

No. 102

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.

No. 103

Still taking suggestions for banners or a site logo, by the way.

Banners have to be 300x100, logo can be of any size.

No. 104

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

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.

email me if this interests you: prettyuglylittleliar@gmail.com

No. 106

>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. 107

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. 108

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. 109

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. 110


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. 111

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. 112


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. 113

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. 114

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

No. 115


Christ can you imagine if they merged tonight? The next morning there would be like 5 "post ure dolly face ^___^" and "selfie shoop!!!" threads waiting for us positively oozing with pasty, acne covered weeaboo teens.

No. 116

PULL actually got a rule against this kind of threads since many months.

No. 117

You forgot about posts throwing a fit over namefagging (omh you guise stop homo-shaming!!11!)

No. 118

God no. It's bad enough some of those idiotic tarts derail threads as it is.

No. 119

So it basicly would turn into /cgl/ but without rules.

No. 120

Augh god, there will be copious amounts of that. Pixyteri thread? "You're fat shaming!!" and "I've never seen ghetto used in a Pixyteri thread but you use it for Delandra because she's black?!?!" Jessica Nigri thread? "You're slut shaming!!!! She should have the right to walk around naked and not get harassed!" Thread about some other shit? "OMG YOU'RE MARTIAN SHAMING!! YOU RACIST ASSHOLES!!!"

No. 121

One /cgl/ is bad enough…

No. 122

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.

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. 123


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. 124

>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. 125

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.

No. 126

Seconding. It's really stupid and constantly derails threads. Jesus Christ, there's some strong assburgers here.

No. 127

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.

If anyone is interested, please tell me. And if you want to talk to me privately, report any random post and include your message as the report reason.

No. 128

I'd like this.

Can we do something about unichan drama shit as well? It's starting to get a little annoying.

No. 129

>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. 130

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. 131

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.

No. 132

mayyybe. I mean spamming every thread like how there were is definitely annoying.

No. 133


Like we get it, your ass hurts, you're poor, and no, you don't have to mention it in every thread faggot.

No. 134

I agree with this anon, if you make a "No blatant racism" rule you open the floodgates for people who think racism = power + privilege. It's just too difficult to fairly enforce something that comes down to mod discretion.

No. 135

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.

No. 136

I'm pretty sure the person talking about Mexicans isn't from Unichan. Whoever they are they seem to be an old SR member.

No. 137

I spent a lot of time at SR and I don't remember ever seeing anyone freaking out about Mexicans, so I doubt they are from SR. /pol/ type behavior is more prevalent on the chans, so my guess is that this butthurt beaner hater is from one of them.

No. 138

I recall one retard on SR being super angry that Marijan confirmed he is a white European and not a "beaner" as they thought so it might be them. It wouldn't surprise me because holy shit, they needed to take their order of assburgers to go.

No. 139

As a Mexican myself, I honestly don't mind racist chan, mostly because people here seem cool and not racists.
So, he/she can sperg as much as he/she wants.
It does gets annoying tho.

No. 140

That was quite a rant. Do you feel better now?

Looking into this.

>Also an auto update tick box.

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.

Expand all images, and inline expansion toggle. And perhaps separate the meta into another thread?

10 seconds is a bit low, you could easily up it to 15 or 25. Not even 4ch x has lower than 30.

No. 146

>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?

just wanted to thank you for this website, really happy to find this place as anon again.

No. 148

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

No. 149

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

No. 150

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. 151


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. 152

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. 153


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. 154

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.

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. 155


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. 156


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. 157

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.

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. 267

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.

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.

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 would never consider putting up ads, don't worry.

>Admin, how do you pay for this site?

I'm paying for it myself. The site doesn't cost very much to run at the moment, so there is no need for donations either.

Unless a large portion of users desire this, I'd prefer to avoid splintering boards unless there's a very good reason. I think having a small board count lends a lot of advantages.

Also, who exactly gets to make the determination of which category an individual falls in? One "beauty guru" may be considered a lolcow (/pt/-worthy) by some people while not one (/yt/-worthy) by others.

No. 375

I don't think a whole new board is needed for youtube personalities, I think a thread should suffice. Perhaps one for beauty gurus and another for other youtubers if necessary? I know I personally like coming to /pt/ and having all the threads I'm interested in reading in once place.

Admin, the missing thread bug still exists and seems to be cache related.

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.

>There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things.

No. 379

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.

I'll keep looking into it. It's possible that overly aggressive caching on the browser side may be to blame. It may also be Cloudflare. If you see it happen again, please try to refresh a few times and also clear your browser cache to check if the page changes.

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. 403

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.

No. 404

Anon who uses mobile practically exclusively here, I have not run into that problem as of yet.

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.

Next time you down see it, try pinching the screen and zooming out a tad.

No. 407


eclipsed out of view*

No. 408

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. 409

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. 410

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 2D shota threads and posts have actually been made by long-time site users and contributors (except for the hilarious trollmaster who posted today and was banned), and chans do have a culture of that sort of stuff.

Seconded, thirded, fouthededredded on banning shota and loli from the boards.

I know that expansion sounds like a good idea but really, lolcow was never created with that intent and I don't think we should degrade ourselves to that level just entertain a minority of posters.

It may not be necessarily illegal aside from in some countries, but it's gross and is based off an entirely illegal, vile and disgusting reality.

Saying this as a child abuse victim myself, please don't start pandering to these sickos.
Shota and loli only makes light of people like me and turns our suffering into a complete fucking joke.

No. 447

Should that have its own thread or could we keep the discussion here?

No. 448

Because lolicon itself is already banned and loli is just the term for young looking anime characters, a lot of wannabe idols include stuff featuring them or cosplaying them in photos, like half of the Yukapon posts wouldn't be allowed anymore.

Uhh…obviously they meant actual CP should be banned, 3D or 2D. Currently 2D is not banned.

>3. Do not post sexually suggestive 2D or 3D images of minors, or any other image that could be construed as serving to appeal to pedophiles, even if the images are not technically illegal in the US.

Can we please have some sort of filter or at least ban the influx of morons? I don't know what it is but for the past two months not only have people been shitting up the /b/ folder but we're getting teenybopper bitches from god knows where derailing threads with irrelevant comments about their lives. Can't it be a rule to post stupid shit like, "Amg wai u gaiz talkin bout dis doh?!?!" Its a website for gossiping. They stick around and just bitch and moan in the threads about the site's intended purpose. Did 4chan move over here or some shit?

No. 464

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.

As for enforcing post quality standards, at this time I have no plans to, but I do have a few possible distant-future ideas on implementing such a thing in a way that is not too authoritarian.

No. 466

All those themes have actually been there since day 1. :)

If anyone's interested in designing a custom theme, all you have to do is edit one of the stylesheets like https://lolcow.farm/stylesheets/wasabi.css. You can just change the colors, or make whatever changes you want. Email it to me and if it's any good, I'll add it as an option for everyone.

Things that might need improvement:

>Firefox keeps asking to save a password when replying

>Can't close webms
>Link redirects are often broken
>Embedded Youtube width/height is wrong causing black bars

Remembering the scroll position in a thread so you can come back to it later would be a nice feature. 4chan his this already. A red line like in 4chanX mite b cool too.

No. 468

>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.

>Remembering the scroll position in a thread so you can come back to it later would be a nice feature. 4chan his this already. A red line like in 4chanX mite b cool too.

I have plans to add both of these features.

Is there any reason why sometimes links aren't clickable?

At least on Skype when I want to share those webms of PT they aren't hyperlinked and my friend will have to copy+paste into a new tab.

No. 473

Yes, this is due to Skype not recognizing .farm as a valid top-level domain for websites.

You can replace the ".farm" with ".org" in any link and it'll redirect automatically. I actually bought the .org specifically for linking stuff (mostly due to Skype's annoyance).

No. 476

The only thing that should be purged are anons like you who feel the need to go around dictating what people can and cannot post. Just because you happen to like someone doesn't mean that they're off limits. I think Felice Fawn is pretty, but I don't bitch and moan over posts about her. You sound new or like some stupid bitch from PULL who doesn't realize that this place isn't PULL.

No. 479

This had nothing to do with self promoting. Two new threads were created today and as soon as they were, the same one anon went around bitching and moaning about how EYK and gravewhore aren't lolcows because wehhhhhhh i liek themmmmm!1!1!1!! Those were the basis for each of those posts, in both threads, if anyone bothers to even look.

No. 480

This place WILL turn into PULL if retards don't stop acting as if their special criteria is what makes threads allowed here. They aren't the admin or the mods, they have no say in what gets posted. When people begin to try and act like there's some sort of etiquette and criteria for something like being a cunt and shittalking that's when the site will become minipull.

No. 482

That's the problem. Anons like that can't even argue why someone isn't deserving of being here other than the fact that they like them and that should be reason enough. The EYK thread got so much hate despite people in the ahri thread asking for it all because one anon flipped their shit over their precious koreaboo bloggers being badmouthed.

It's happening again in the grav3yardgirl thread with the only reasoning being, "Wah wah d-don't talk bad bout what I like!"

No. 513


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.

As a frequent shitposter, I'm glad.

People shouldn't be banned just because they don't agree with your political views.

No. 518

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.


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.

No. 522

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.

But admin has said he won't ban anyone for anything so it really doesn't matter.

No. 523

I don't care about esl chan, tbh. 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." 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. 524

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. 538

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.


>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:


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.

No. 539

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)

No. 540


Would it not make sense to ban the person that started it and perpetuated it as opposed to the person trying to prevent it though?

I am super salts >:l

No. 541

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.

No. 542

I'll keep looking into it. I'm not really sure what might be causing this.

You could've ignored them, or told them to stop posting and go elsewhere, but instead you were directly fueling the fire.

No. 543


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.


Oh rite nvm.

No. 544


I did not respond to day old bait, my first post into the Eva "discussion" was >>70380, made one hour after the post before that. I'm not the person arguing prior to that so idk why I got banned.

No. 545

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. 546


>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. 547

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

No. 548


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. 549

>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.

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.

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.

No. 550


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. 551


I don't think they're excessive I just would have preferred a warning first.

At the end of the day I'm just super autistic about this kind of stuff and I'm worried about this place going the way of 4chan, Maxfag and Staminarose.


Hell yeah I'm salty, m-muh injustice.

No. 552

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.

This would be nice.

Also how far are you on the remembering scroll position feature? This is still my biggest annoyance about lolcow because I have to re-read a lot of posts just to be sure I scrolled back to where I stopped reading or where the thread stopped the day before. Thanks for your awesome work so far though!!

No. 556

See >>395

/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".

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.

No. 603

Small ads are no biggie. I leave the ads on when I use 4chan and they don't bother me since they're small banners at the top and bottom of the pages. Think about it. I don't think many lolcow users would honestly be opposed to the idea.

No. 604

The problem with ads is that I'm pretty sure this site will violate the ToS of any good network. So if for example Adense was added a cow could report lolcow.farm and have the account suspended in a day. Then we'd have to listen to them cheer about how they "hurt the trolls in their wallet" or some shit.

Any ad network that would allow this site would serve horrible ads and we'd all block them anyway.

No. 605

Dear Admin-sama,
I'm having some trouble with the site that might be cloudflare related but I wanted to report it just in case anyone else was having a similar issue. Sometimes, I will see a brief 'flash' of new posts, but when the page fully loads they all disappear. I feel like I'm at least an hour/half an hour behind all posts on the site.

also I'm using a laptop right now so it shouldn't be a mobile problem. thank you a lot. please let us know if you need any help with the server.

Not if you used ads from places that don't give a fuck about that kind of stuff, like J-list and porn sites, or those little desperate mobile game apps that advertise their trash like "FIRE OF WAR" and "GODDESS WINGS REALM".

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.
Seeing people on here stating that kids in these situations are "getting what they deserve" is down right disturbing.

Agreed. I know some lolcows start early, but can we have a "no bashing children under 16" rule or something?

No. 666


Yes, I agree with this proposal.

No. 667

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.

Can you link or report some example posts? I plan on adding a rule like this, though I'm not completely sure how I should word it or how strict it should be. I agree that harassment and excessively personal attacks of minors isn't good.

I think that one is a bit worse than the Erica thread, because that little girl hasn't even done anything. In 5-6 years she's going to be looking to get her first job, and someone will inevitably google her name.

OP here again. I'm sorry, I didn't realize how butthurt everyone would be about the picture for the thread. It was just the one /cow/ used, so I didn't really think about it. Btw I am a victim of sexual abuse so I can sympathize with the girl, which is why I never said I wouldn't change the picture. But I just kind of think you guys are overreacting a bit. inb4 attacked

>Her name was not listed in the thread.

Disregard this, I suck millions of cocks. I didn't realize someone else had mentions her first name.

Again, people are constantly attacking me for the picture, and I'm really sorry. Obviously I didn't think about it. Please understand I am not fighting to change the OP picture at all and I was busy moving all day so I didn't pay attention to the thread.

All links contained within new posts are now automatically submitted to https://archive.is, an independent web archival service. If you hover over a link, a new link should appear to the right which allows you to view the archived version.

I would recommend posting the direct versions of links from now on, and let the board handle the archiving. This saves you time, and also lets readers easily compare between the page as it looked at the time the post was submitted, and how the page looks now.

This only applies to links made as of a few hours ago, and all future links. Any links posted before then have not been archived and will not display anything when hovered.

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.

I've noticed we've recieved a distinct increase in traffic recently and I am always reading about all these spoopy things online like the Elisa Lam case and thinking "wow I'd like to hear lolcow's verdict on this" , but then it doesn't really belong on /pt/ and nor does it really fit on /b/.

Users of lolcow strike me as being into their top spoop and conspiracies, how would others feel about the addition of an /x/?

No. 729

/b/ is literally anything you want so just make an /x/ thread. jfc we don't need a new board for every single whim.

Well for starters it is not practical to have a single thread containing multitudes of spoopy debates as it would become confusing as fuck if somebody decided they wanted to start discussing the Everest corpses again whilst everybody else is discussing Elisa Lam sandwiched between aliens and chemtrails.

Thanks, Admin-sama. I have so much vicious bile to spew, and I can't handle it when lolcow goes down.

No. 737

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


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.


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.

No. 738

>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.
I've noticed this too and will try to fix it.

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.

No. 739

Page title new post indicator issue should now be fixed as well.

No. 740


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. 741

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.

Any chance you'll fix the typing on mobile? it's still laggy as heeeck (on Lite too) so now I've started writing my text in a document and copy/paste to lolcow. It's seriously so dreadful. I can't even see the text I type until I stop typing and wait like 4-5 seconds for the lag to stop.

No. 747

I have never actually noticed this or received a report of this before. Would you mind saying what phone model you have? Mine doesn't have this issue, but it's a pretty recent model.

Also, if you try to post in a thread with under a hundred posts, is it just as laggy as threads with over a thousand posts?

No. 748

I have this too, but I have a SG3 soooOOO idk I always assumed it was my phone.

That phone isn't too old, it shouldn't be having issues like that. Can you compare the lag between small and large threads, and also see if lite mode helps at all?

No. 750

I have this problem as well, I thought it was just my slow ass phone. I have a iPhone 4. It tends to have more trouble lagging on threads that are like 900+ posts.
However, I also have an overstuffed memory and most apps do not work well on my phone anyway.

No. 752

You already saw me mentioning it in another thread a while back. I'm on an iPhone 6.. and my internet is quite good.

Any thread is laggy as heck to me. And lite or not doesn't matter, it's the same.

No. 753

Sorry, I vaguely remembered that but couldn't find a mention of it when searching this thread, so I just assumed I misremembered.

Has it always seemed slow, or has it only become bad starting this week, or today? When did you start notice it being slow? Is the slowness apparent after you've only had a thread up for a minute or 2, or only slowness initially loading it, or both?

No. 754

It was just last night, I guess the site was just busy.

No. 755

Load did not increase significantly yesterday or last night compared to the rest of the week, so I suspect a server issue.

Was it lag in loading pages and submitting posts (where the page was just loading while showing no content, or stuck at "Posting…"), or were threads loaded yet slow in some other way?

No. 756

The first one. I couldn't get the site to load fully for about an hour before I posted >106539

Sorry about that. I have an uptime monitoring utility, and it did not report any downtime yesterday or today.

this is a tad late, admin, but i can't access lolcow on my android phone. i've tried opera, i've tried other browsers, still same message.
it's 'secure connection could not be established'. before that, i'd just get messages about how the name didn't match the website or some shit. i forgot the exact word. that was since you switched to https. a while later, it stopped working entirely!
i hope you can fix it bc i really miss browsing in my bed in the morning!

No. 759

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.

However, Android phones should all support these algorithms. Usually it's old machines running Windows XP that have this problem.

What Android OS version are you running?

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. I don't know what conditions cause V8's GC to sometimes be lazy and sometimes work properly. This one is over a span of about 20 minutes.

No. 762


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.

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. 774

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. 775

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/.

No. 776

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. 777

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.

No. 778

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. 779

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. 780

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.

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.

No. 785

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 >>778.

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.

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.

Updated the rule regarding minimum age.

>You must be at least 14 years old to browse or post. However, all posts should appear as if they were written by an adult. If you are known to be under 18 and are posting in an immature manner, your age may contribute to harsher punishment.

I originally made this rule because I don't really like the whole "underage b&" technicalities on 4chan. If someone makes a perfectly fine post but mentions they are 16, I don't think that means they shouldn't be allowed to use the site. (And I honestly could not care less if a teenager catches a glimpse of someone's boobs or something. If they're on an imageboard they have definitely seen porn before.)

But I also don't want immature 14-year-olds posting garbage everywhere. Or immature 25-year-olds posting garbage everywhere.

I don't care very much about your actual age, but everyone should at least attempt to act like an adult.

No. 901

I don't care about underagers making posts. But as long as the minimum age is 14, I think that selfposting pictures of yourself should be strongly discouraged, even if the selfposter is 30. There is a lot that can go wrong if you're misled to believe that it is okay to post a picture of yourself to an anonymous imageboard known for making fun of people.

So, I'm not sure if admin is familiar with bullyville and Kate gosselin but basically, a reality TV star teamed up with a bullying site to unmask and shame anonymous commenters, some of whom crossed the line, some of whom didn't. I was wondering, what would happen if lolcow was subpoenaed for info re:posters? What is admin's stance on that sort of thing? I guess The TPP thread in /b/ has me wondering about the freedom of speech for anons as well more generally…

No. 911

I can't make any absolute guarantees, but the server is not hosted in North America. They would likely have to prove a crime or tort was committed in the country in which the server resides. Even in the US, the only things that would really apply here are threats (which are already banned) and libel. Additionally, a subpoena would only be able to cover IPs of specific posts, not every post.

I would fight any subpoena tooth and nail, unless it's of something genuinely criminal and unethical (like CP or death threats). But if I lose that fight, I have no choice but to give up IP addresses. There is no way to hide IPs or store them in a way which would prevent law enforcement from accessing them given a valid subpoena, warrant, or other court order. Only truly anonymous applications, like Tor hidden services, can operate without ever having access to end user IPs.

I believe it is very unlikely this will ever be a problem, and if it does, I will do everything I legally can to prevent users' information from being exposed. But there is certainly a tiny chance it could happen. To stay on the safe side, people should probably avoid posting libel (intentionally false statements you portray as true, e.g. "X cheated on her boyfriend 5 times" if it's false). Even if you do though, the chances of anything happening are minuscule.

No. 919

I like it a lot, but I almost wonder if it's a bit too lewd for a spoiler pic. Maybe make the spoiler bar a bit vertically bigger on both sides?

>Could you add the "[First 100 posts] [Last 50 posts]" script to lolcow? (example: http://kusabax.cultnet.net/sug/) I don't know if the software you're running support this like kusaba does, but it would really help, especially on threads with 1000+ replies.

So Kusaba is pretty standard imageboard software, where something like that is really easy to add and modify at whim. Lolcow's board software is based on a similar codebase to 8chan's. Instead of boards, threads, and posts being pulled from a database and displayed as you viewed them, they're actually generated ahead of time and stored as static files. This means there is no easy to view only a section of a thread, without having separate code to generate separate files with only a subset of posts in a thread. It complicates things a lot.

When I upgrade the software to something closer to what 8chan's running, which is already publicly available, then I can do a last 100 posts option, and maybe later do some more advanced things. But I've made a lot of custom edits to the software, both at the frontend and backend, so I have to manually transport the code to the newest codebase and make sure it doesn't conflict. I am currently about halfway done with that. I don't know when it'll finish though.

>Admin, please add a red message on /pt/ (like the "Chat with fellow farmers at chat.lolcow.farm — see /meta/ for details") urging new people to read the rules, especially linking Board Guidelines.

I plan on doing this. I have not yet decided exactly how to define lolcow criteria (it may be more difficult than you think), but I'm likely going to start making the rules somewhat more strict over time in a series of steps, culminating in eventually splitting /pt/ into 2 boards.

why the age change?

No. 945

Although I still think "14+ but act like an adult or you'll be banned" is a more reasonable rule in many ways, the fact is that it creates an "image" issue.

By explicitly having that rule, it may give the impression to 14/15-year-olds that this is a good site for them to join and is in line with the interests of young teenagers. Too much of that and the whole place becomes infested.

And a bit of that did start to happen in /b/, so I decided it's just not worth it to try and preserve such a low minimum age. 16 seems like a good balance.

No. 951

Could my original post be changed from the dumb questions to just "Weeby Wannabe Idols General" or "Aspiring Aidorus" or something, or should the thread be moved to /b/ (if aspiring aidorus don't actually count as lolcows, that is)?

I noticed post submission felt like it was getting slow starting a few months ago. It seemed like every week it was getting slower and slower for a post to actually go through after you press "New Topic" or "New Reply".

I finally realized there was some absolutely terribly written code bundled with the default board software that is run every time a post is submitted, in a way that would make it even slower relative to the number of posts in boards. I modified it slightly, and now posting should feel considerably faster in all boards.

Sounds like Javascript somehow isn't loading when you visit /b/. Try refreshing the page a few times, and try restarting the browser.

As for slow typing, try these things:

* Especially on devices like phones, threads need some time to load. If you try typing in a field while a thread is still loading, typing will be extremely laggy. Try waiting 45 seconds (probably less) for a thread to load before typing. Often there is some visual indicator that a thread is loading, like a bar at the bottom or a loading icon.

* See if Lite mode helps at all.

And finally, I'll be adding options to view only the last 50 or 100 posts in a thread in the future, which should solve this problem as well.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I know the site doesn't work that great on some mobile devices at the moment.

Idk how Admin feels about this idea but I feel that the board would benefit from a search function at this point.

I want to query why my Cara Delevingne thread was locked and moved from /g/ to /b/?

/b/ is for generic, non-specific discussion whereas /g/ is for discussion pertaining to feminine interests right? I'm just confused because I don't understand how a thread surrounding a female model is more relevant to /b/ than /g/.
Even in the rules it states that /g/ is for "Fashion/style/clothing".

It's not really a big deal but I'm really funny about having things organised and I don't understand the desicion.

No. 1117

>If you plan on making a thread to discuss a contentious issue, or to criticize a person, community, place, issue, or subject, or to discuss a specific person or small group (regardless of it being positive or negative), it should go in /b/ or /pt/, not here.

Admittedly, the delineation between /b/ and /g/ isn't very clear. In my opinion most things should go in /b/, and only a small specific subset should go in /g/.

Hey Admin I think the time has finally come to create a board for lesser/unknown/new cows.

I feel like /b/ has really grounded itself as an individual board with regular, sustained content at this point and daily I am seeing threads being created or moved over from /pt/ that are getting lost in a deluge of other threads and so don't really get a chance for investigation.

I'm requesting leave for the set of "cute white girls/black girls/Asian girls" threads to be recreated in /g/ as opposed to /b/ in order to rectify an ongoing problem with them.

I think that the threads overall theme is more relevant to /g/ in the first place as they're often beauty/fashion centric, although due to the fact that race posting is excluded from /g/ that's likely the reason they were placed in /b/.

This has given rise to a new problem unfortunately being that people have been going in to the other threads and attempt to spam, derail or destroy the other threads for reasons I can only base within racial animosity, and they have entirely free reign to do so given the fact that raceposting isn't barred within /b/.

I want to recreate them in /g/ where people can feel free to submit to them without fear of the threads being invaded and destroyed by racists, and where if people do come in to try and stir up racial animosity, they can be reported and dealt with appropriately in order to discourage future shitposting.

The threads as a whole are a really good concept and I often frequent the one relevant to my own race in order to pick up inspiration and beauty tips, but at present it's becoming impossible on account of the rampant racism and shitposting and people invading the other threads and back and forth again and again in an attempt to racially one-up-another.

No. 1280

I see you've implemented a redirection to all links being posted here because you want to maintain the secrecy of this site (at the risk of sounding like a newfag, which specific communities, whose admins you're afraid will expose lolcow.farm, are you trying to hide this site from?). But I find the redirection itself to be very privacy-invading (I don't want annonylink to know every URL I click) and annoying on top of that (I open most youtube links with mpv and overwriting those links is interfering with the way I set up my browser to handle those links). Can you just remove clickable hyperlinks and prompt the users to install a referrer spoofing addon instead?

No. 1281

Actually now that I think about it, removing hyperlinks won't make handling youtube links easier for my browser. Nevermind.

Dunno. That part is usually probably handled by youtube-dl.

>Also, if you're manually copying and pasting the links anyway,

I don't do that. I highlight the url and select "open with mpv" in the context menu. This works even if the link isn't clickable.

>I'd prefer to rewrite all URLs with it.

Okay but why? You said it's only the tumblr users being posted on /pt/ that's the problem. And when you post youtube videos through pic related there's no redirection from anonylink.

>You said it's only the tumblr users being posted on /pt/ that's the problem.
I said primarily, not only.

You're right though, it isn't really necessary to do the rewriting for Youtube links. Going forward, all new Youtube links won't be prefixed. Prior links still have their prefix.

youtube-dl should handle redirects, by the way.

The quality of the simulator is definitely far more entertaining than the real posts.

Are threads lagging just in general, or only when you click the posts to reveal the originals?

Actually you initially dropped in a message into the thread I was in and said we were dumb (I won't look for it to quote because the thread is now a laggy mess). The front page notice came later.

>The quality of the simulator is definitely far more entertaining than the real posts.

Exactly my point then? I very much like the simulator, and I can see how you have enjoyed deploying it. But you don't enjoy what goes on here- that's interesting. Why do you keep it going?

>Are threads lagging just in general, or only when you click the posts to reveal the originals?

At the moment both - in a thread where there are a mix of fake and real posts, but before it was only if I tried to reveal the posts. Reveal worked only 50% of the time for me.

>Maybe next time I do it, I won't put a reveal option. That'll resolve the lag, and the issue of people complaining (since no one will be able to see the complaints).

It's your site to treat as you please. You have gotten a lot of good feedback in the last day and I'm prepared to accept that I'm the odd one out in thinking its unfunny. I suspect that's because I'm older than most who post here and don't come for the shitposting.

Hey, admin-sama. I noticed your recent post on the Venus/Margo thread about the 'OT' or 'blog post' comments, and I just wanted to throw my two cents in on this subject.
Banning users who create this sort of content–or simply deleting the posts–seems like the most obvious solution, but an extreme one. However, I agree that these posts are unnecessary and generally clog up or derail the lolcow/snowflake threads rather than contributing any useful or relevant information. Personally, I think it's unlikely that these kinds of '32-inch-waist-chan' posters will ever be completely eradicated, but maybe there are some ways to cope with 'em, anyways.
I'm not a programmer, but I was wondering if, instead of trying to discourage this behavior in specific threads, we simply add a filter or a 'sage' clickable option in the text-entry field to hide off-topic posts for users who don't care to see them. Janitors could use the thirty-two-inch-waist sticker to replace off-topic/personal posts until clicked if anon forgets to include the keywords (and it's distracting enough that it's reported by other users)
It's probably not a high-ranking concern right now, but I figured that I'd make my suggestion here since I seem to usually have a hard time catching you on the chat. Thanks for reading!

No. 2424

I should also probably make it clear that this suggestion was made with the assumption that indefinite hellweek will eventually end?
But also we could just continue indefinitely on this blazing crazy train, ever-questing for our promised land of milk and salt. das cool too

No. 2425

This would be trivial to add, but it would require each user to manually and individually hide every off-topic post they see.

Completely defeats the point and gives even more power to the blogposters.

No. 2426

Admin-sama, did you by any chance ban(like, completely?) any russian anons lately? I've been unable to visit lolcow for the past two days(connection timeout) until we added it to our list of sites to access through vpn, so I've been wondering if I did something wrong. No idea if a ban like that is possible though, so I'm sorry if I sound extremely stupid.

No. 2427

Huh. Disregard my post. It seems that the problem is that http redirects to https and somehow lolcow with https only works through vpn for me. Weird.

No. 2428

Guys, your ip is blocked in Russia since 25.04.2016. And https doesn't work because they can't switch the page with "blahblahblah this site is blocked"
The best thing is THEY BLOCKED CLOUDFLARE lol

No. 2432

I've received reports of this from another Russian anon as well. I doubt the Russian government was targeting this site in particular, since each of Cloudflare's reverse proxy IPs serve a large number of websites.

Not really anything I can do about it.

No. 2436

You can ask cloudflare to move you to a different ip, but, honestly, getting blocked in Russia is kind of a good thing, because now you'll only have russian anons who can use vpn, which probably means less idiots!

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.

No. 4436

Not a bug or anything, but just a suggestion…

Have you all ever considered the idea of multiple images being uploaded for each post? Nothing like 5+ images or anything, but maybe a max of 3 (or even 2) would help a lot of our threads. Especially /pt/ and /snow/.

Just wondering, because I come across several threads where an anon is needing to post screencaps or images of a milky moment and they have to span several images out across multiple posts. Sometimes they'll be back-to-back all at once, but most of the time they're scattered in the thread with a few other posts in between. It would help the threads be a bit less cluttered as well as freeing up some extra posts before the limit is hit.

That's if it can be done. I've seen several imageboards have the feature but didn't know if it was something that would be too difficult to incorporate here due to how it's set up (as not all are the same).

No. 4660

This might be a stupid suggestion, but I find this site really fucking hard to navigate. Its taken me ages of looking around to figure out how to move from thread to thread. Could there be a basic 'lolcow.farm for dummies' page, similar to the rules page so that newbies can figure out how to use the site?

No. 4662

Could we have some more boards? I wouldn't mind one for makeup for example. It's perfect for an image board composed mostly by girls.

Apologies if this has been posted already; did a quick ctrl+f and didn't see it pop up. I was curious how difficult it would be to implement a message reaction system for threads. I attached a mockup of what it could possibly look like (The emoji images are placeholders for icons that are made specifically for this forum). The two main issues it would help accomplish imo:

1) A user posts an awesome shoop/cow fanart, and the thread is populated with a couple "you slay me, anon". But being able to lurk and quietly emote at messages would provide encouragement for more posts like this and prevent the thread from mostly being the same reactions - and give lurkers an opportunity to help shape the thread by offering encouragement.

2) The opposite is true. While some posts are given more encouragement for them to continue sharing in that vein, people who go on long nitpicking spergouts or brag about torturing their friends for 10 years with talking about, the thread gets clogged with several put-downs or mini-modding. Or another situation where the response is too autistic to warrant any replies to the message, which the user might interpret as a good response since there was no opposition. Instead, users would be able to react without having to add posts to the thread that let users know to lurk more or pay attention to the messages with higher votes.

3) As previously mentioned - especially with the Onion threads - there has been a large surge of mini-modding. With responses just being "sage your post" or "nitpicking", users could express their thoughts on a post by reacting with "sage" or "nitpicking" emotes. It wouldn't be an official moderator message, but it would give the commentor the hint of how they come across without filling the thread with useless posts.

TL;DR adding reactions would cut down on the number of non-contributive posts, encourage lurkers to shape the conversation without having to comment, and cut-down on mini-modding. I imagine this is probably not an easy feature to implement, but I hope that the pros I've listed here at least make it considered for development.

No. 4867

Yeah, something like KiwiFarms has would be fun. We could have our own emoticons related to cows. If this idea is chose it would be great to have a thread to brainstorm what little icons to use, maybe put some Queen PT faces too.

Not sure if this is just my phone acting up or not, but the catalogue keeps redirecting (to a new catalogue page that isnt loading the format properly). and when I read some threads a post will initially load, then just become a weird gap/space and fuck up the thread layout. Pic related, the white gaps are where posts should be.

I keep thinking this, and it looks like the last time it was mentioned was 3 years ago, and there are even more youtube cow threads now! I mean Onion/Lainey, Game Grumps/Suzy, Dasha/Edwin/Cyr/Mina, Kelly Eden, Baylee Jae, grav3yardgirl, Mags/Venus, Logan Paul, Pewdiepie just to name a few. I know some of them would stay on /pt/ but a separate youtube board might be nice. Just think of all the beautubers alone! The fact that we needed a whole separate youtube embedding system alone seems like enough indication.

Maybe something like /yt/ or /guru/ ? I know Gurugossiper exists but trying to read a forum where everyone has signatures and avatars and stacks of quotes in the year 2018 seems wild.
