no idea. fuck. that's really sad and scary, i really hope this isn't going to be the last of the female imageboards aside from fujochan. you could try to message their admin? the domain seems to still be owned and is parked so maybe she's doing some tweaking? do you have her discord? it's snail#5286

no they were having some things going on, they had abortion threads, a thread for a mascot they named called "biochan" who has DNA for hair (she's against troons, hence, bio-chan), threads about all kinds of other stuff, it was just kind of dead unfortunately.

If you love it so much why do you even come here? Go back to your imageboard

No. 1167777

same. i don't like the infighting between boards. their admin literally came from here and that whole site came after this one. it was a good idea and i think we should take advantage of it before we lose it because it's dead or something, tbh. this site always feels like it's on shaky ground. so it's not a good idea to infight between boards when we don't even know wtf is up with this one.

No. 1167827

There are so many new threads on cc, i like the variety. /feels/ is infested with nigel talk, and although that doesn’t interest me it is nice to see how supportive people are to each other’s problems there. It certainly feels calmer, jannies don’t have a bee in their bonnet and it’s not centred on nitpicking other women whilst pretending to be feminist. Sometimes it feels like users here want people to suffer and make terrible life choices just for ‘milk’. I’m ok with community watch type stuff, as it’s not towards one person. Also, i can keep up with people i used to follow online without social media.

What i like about lolcow is that it’s more fast paced, the jannies are actually doing a great job cultivating this controversial and wonderful space despite pushback, i laugh a lot here, it’s unapologetic. People are kind of aggressive here and the zoomer hate is tiresome. But it’s still my favourite place in the internet. I love both imageboards for different reasons. Also, i prefer imageboard aggression to reddit aggression i.e shadowbanning, ‘um sweetie’, karma whoring, popular opinions being encouraged. I hope lolcow and cc exist for a long time side by side like princess celestia and princess luna

>/feels/ is just anons whining about their bfs
Wrong. I mean it is a problem that has prompted miners to ask for the nigel/relationship threads to be contained within a general, but other types of vent that are common are college, family, abuse, social anxiety and loneliness-related. Also you say that as if there weren't multiple relationships threads on here and as if there weren't many posts about boyfriends or exes in the vent threads, too.

>i think we should take advantage of it before we lose it
I agree. If the only complaint of nonas here is that "it's full of troons" or that all the posters are male because they use emoticons occasionally (didn't you know? women don't talk like that), why don't they go over there and call posters out for being male? It's what I try to do too, call the obvious males out and remind trannies every now and then that they're not welcome in female-only spaces and that they'll never one of us.
I also try to post a bit more on /m/, but it has been pretty dead as of lately. At least my /img/ thread has gotten some activity these days that isn't my own image dumps.

>If you love it so much why do you even come here?
Because it's dead most of the time, except the TERF and pinkpill threads which I don't find necessary since I shit on men all the time here, and /feels/ which I don't use. Personally, I browse both imageboards when either of them is dead and I'm bored. There's nothing wrong with that and as the other anon said, CC literally was born from LC, so why let scrotes take over? I would like more female-only imageboards, like Fujochan even if I don't like it. At least it gives women from other imageboards a place to get away from moids and misogynistic chan culture, also they're good places to vent about things you can't on mainstream social media, such as being a radical feminist or just disagreeing with trans ideology.

No. 1168589

how is my post indicative of an underaged retard because i think it's sad to potentially have seen an imageboard disappear? their admin could've easily fucked off, decided not to renew the domain name and server and the site entirely. why is not wanting to see a female imageboard that is okay with posting radfem and radfem adjacent content disappear, underage behavior?

No. 1168615

CC got overraided with troons and moids, a lot of the mods are confirmed moids as well. it was fun and comfy when it first started, slowness never bothered me either

No. 1168620

Because this kind of shit happens all the time and it's embarrassing that you went straight to LiTerraLlY PaNicKing because of a problem that retarded website admins very commonly create for themselves.

No. 1168681

who was literally panicking? i didn't literally panic, i just said that it'd be sad and scary to lose yet another place for women and girls to speak freely. and their admin has been non-communicative for months on the site, so yes, that is worrisome to go from months of 0 contact on the boards basically, to it just going down with no warning. it's one thing if she had been communicating prior, but she hadn't been for a long while and people had been asking for communication. it was clear there weren't server issues, but that the site had actually been taken down, not the same as what i'm assuming you're figuring typically happens here, which are server issues. sites aren't typically taken down with the domain name parked (which could've meant it was for sale or needed to be renewed, or for whatever reason she took it all off to tweak, though it's a little weird to park a domain for simply quick tweaking, but either way, not as simple and commonplace as the server acting up).

No. 1168695

>I’M SHITTING they can’t take it down…
>who was literally panicking?

ok. cc is open back again so you can go there now?

No. 1168696

You know what now that I think about it I don't like cc that much anymore. I want to give certain posters the benefit of the doubt, but sometimes I get tired of cc posters whining about "radfems" and "blaming everything on porn". I want to think that they're just pickmes that arrived recently from 4scrote or something, because I admit I used to be like that too, I didn't like seeing so much talk about hating men and porn, it was tiring. But slowly I started to become more radfem-leaning and then I got so bored of cc's slow activity that I came here to lc, because I didn't want to go back to moid imageboards. Initially I didn't want to come here because of this site's reputation of being a drama imageboard, and at first the unhingedness of many anons here annoyed me, but I got used to it and now I prefer it here.
That's why I still give that kind of poster on cc the benefit of the doubt, but I guess it's also very likely that those are just scrotes. Now that I've spent a lot more time here, I see why it's important to allow hatred against men to be voiced freely, because it acts as a filter since anyone who tries to police women's frustrations with men (see the failure of an OP that was Vent thread #121) will most probably be a moid or at best, an extremely stupid newfag that really shouldn't be here.

Another problem with crystal.cafe now is that after the constant CP raids that hapened a couple months ago, a bunch of new people applied to be mods and janitors. Legit users over there strongly suspect that there might be males in the new mod team, since there have been a lot of arbitrary post deletions recently, especially in the /meta/ thread for comments and suggestions. For instance, people were asking for a log so that we would've been able to know why the fuck our posts keep being deleted. They deleted the post suggesting it, too, because it happened to call the mods "trannyjannies".
I don't like that the moderation policy over there is to delete every infringing post instead of redtexting every ban except for spam, like here. They delete all evidence of males posting, including the posts that call them out so nobody finds out. I don't care if it's to avoid drama or shitstorms or to keep the site calm and friendly, it obviously creates an environment that makes it easier for scrotes to camouflage themselves.

No. 1168704

Generally I like CC but the thing I hate is that often the mods delete interesting threads. I get deleting troll and scrote threads but why remove the ones that aren't like that?

No. 1168732

stop bitching when you don't even know what you're talking about. >>1167717 was my first post. >>1167724 then this one >>1167777. you're not even arguing with the right person. the first and second posts were not even me, i was the third. me offering suggestions on what it could've been and giving her admin's contact info (because the site was down along with admin's contact info) is somehow panicking and underage behavior, ok. i don't even use CC when LC is functioning well, i just don't want it to be lost so i check up on it occasionally.

No. 1168790

idk it seems fine, the whole point was a more comfy alternative to LC in the first place so of course they seem more sensitive.

I got that impression when I first tried using it but poking around now it seems a lot better.

IDK I think I will try using it more. LC seems to be on thin ice, farmers should probably get comfy with the other women's chans like CC, Choachan and Fujochan in case this board goes down.

No. 1168812

i just visited choachan, so it's just all… kpop? never cared to visit, only heard about it in passing but like you said, farmers really should have alternatives lined up because the future of this site is not stable.

No. 1169094

It has never been, LC has always had trouble retaining admins meanwhile CC has had the same admin for 4 years now IIRC. I think its the gossip boards that make the site a pain for admins. Whatever you think of any of the admins LC has had it is undeniable that dealing with Cease and Desists and other lawyer bullshit all the time must be draining and I think that's why we've cycled through so many admins. As is the site is already on borrowed time and wouldn't still be up had people not chipped in to cover the server costs another year. Between that fund running out, the new admin and the Atlantic article I'd be shocked if the site lasted beyond another year. So yeah farmers should be prepped to migrate to the other chans that share the same orbit as this one.

No. 1169101

Oldmin has been admin since 2018.

I haven't posted on CC in a very long time, only lurk from time to time, but I value it as a space for women to be anonymous and not have to suck troon dick. The existence of both sites is a net positive. You can complain it has trannies, I guess, but over here, we also have handposter/speculum-kun, Johnny Depp scrotes and literal selfposting trannies trying to get validation. I just don't get why we fight, what's the point of conflict?
