Lolcows are people and groups whose eccentric or foolish behavior can be "milked" for amusement and laughs. They are not countries, political figures, celebrities, your highschool bully, or some random YouTuber who doesn't involve himself in drama.
- Be civil.
Don't get angry over Lolcows. If you need to tell people you're better than someone, you're probably not.
- Hide your powerlevel.
Avoid revealing intimate, embarrassing details about yourself. This is not your blog and we are not an asylum.
- Don't backseat moderate.
You are not a moderator. You do not decide if a thread is to remain open or not. You do not decide if someone is a lolcow or not.
- Don't white knight.
Don't turn threads into an intervention. If you want to help, contact them privately. True lolcows reject advice.
- Do not create topics about forum members.
If you believe someone discovered by their account on the forum deserves a thread, ask staff first.
- No trolling plans.
We are not an autistic Illuminati. If you embarrass yourself or the forum trying to troll, we will ridicule you.
- Topic titles should contain aliases.
Keep thread titles as brief as possible and use all their different usernames.
- Archive everything.
Use archival tools to preserve content forever. Upload directly to posts where applicable.
