The concept for how I want to drive this site is still embryonic, but the core principals are this:

1) Anyone can register to the Wordpress installation and submit content.
2) Admins can review, revise, and publish content.
3) The scope covers basically all Internet drama.

You should be able to register here:
https://lolcow.news/admin/

The scope should be contained within Drama. It should be able people being upset irrationally or doing stupid things. It should be something someone on this site wants to read about.

We have so much shit going on now that most people have very little absorption of it. They have a sphere, and they don't reach out from that sphere unless directed. I'd like to give motivated authors an ability to entertain and showcase something they enjoy so that people are less compartmentalized.

If you submit an article and need it approved, let me know. The people I'd like to see submissions from are: @Jaimas, @Alan Pardew, @Internet War Criminal, @introman, and probably @AnOminous. I feel like I'm forgetting someone, though everyone is able to sign up.

I think you gave me a sign in a while back. Can you resend?

I do not seem to have sufficient permissions to use the "Add Media" option on the WordPress to upload images to article drafts. If this is a restricted option, would it be acceptable for me to toss them onto Imgur for now and provide a link where I want it to go in the article so an editor may add it in manually?

Okay, for some stupid fucking reason, contributors cannot be permitted to upload files. That's kind-of fucking shit.

So what I'd like people to do is, yes, upload attachments to imgur and use editor notes. Like below. Authors / Editors have to manage any submission and I'd probably end up sprucing / spellchecking anyways so it's not that big of a deal.

The format isn't too important just make it really clear what needs to be done by the editors.

I haven't had this problem. I've just been posting imgur links directly into the text editor and then they show up in the preview just fine.

That will work, however the images wouldn't be hosted locally. For the sake of organization and whatnot I personally think it's a better idea to have the media hosted on and linked from lolcow.news.

You're right. I'm gonna go back and edit my submitted post, unless @Null gets to it first.
The border you get around the imgur posts is really ugly too.

Ok, I can't start new threads in this forum, so I'll ask it here:
Why is there no comments section? Comments sections generate salt, drama, and lolcows. You're missing out on a great honeypot @Null.

I'd actually like to become a contributor on lolcow news.
I tend to watch out for brewing internet shitstorms. And there's a couple of stories I already have ideas for.

About Us

The Kiwi Farms is about eccentric individuals and communities on the Internet. We call them lolcows because they can be milked for amusement or laughs. Our community is bizarrely diverse and spectators are encouraged to join the discussion.

We do not place intrusive ads, host malware, sell data, or run crypto miners with your browser. If you experience these things, you have a virus. If your malware system says otherwise, it is faulty.

How to Help

The Kiwi Farms is constantly attacked by insane people and very expensive to run. It would not be here without community support.
