    • Recent changes to PULL   07/07/19

      Hello everyone,   As promised, we're working on some changes to improve the forum and community! So far, here are the recent changes: Negative reputation has been disabled. Upvoting remains intact. This is a trial run to deal with whiteknights brigading certain topics and salty users mass-downvoting users they disagree with. Some text formatting options have been removed. Some users like to format their posts in ways that make them harder to read or downright obnoxious. (Light colors, tiny fonts, etc), so this helps make threads more readable. If you find yourself needing post formatting because you're making a new thread, please contact a mod and we will make it happen. New threads have to be approved anyway, so you're not going to have to start out with an ugly thread. Text formatting remains available to all users who have supported us via Patreon.No more threads on "Online Personalities". We will NOT lock or remove old threads, but we won't approve new threads about people who don't have any history of drama or controversies. Some threads will be moved to the snowflake sections if applicable. Read the new topic guidelines before you make a new thread.Here are our works in progress: New categories will be added. "Little Snowflakes" is too broad of a spectrum, so we're going to sort our flakes into a few sub-sections to keep things organized. We will also make more use of tags for those flakes who transcend categories. This will also allow us to appoint moderators to specific categories or snowflakes. New moderators will be onboarded soon.

  1. Nyx added a post in a topic Unpopular opinions   

    Hi all! 
    Just wanted to put forward that debate is absolutely welcome here. I love seeing cited analysis & good arguments. PULL is here to be a place of free speech and discussion. If you post in a thread for unpopular opinions, you know you might ruffle feathers, so discussion is expected and mods won't interfere unless it gets out of hand.
    So, please make sure to keep from personal attacks and *taking* things as personal attacks, that's where we draw a line. We're all here to have a good time, please keep it civil!

    PULL Restructuring
    As mentioned in a recent announcement, we're restructuring! We know change isn't always welcome, but PULL has grown exponentially since we started and we need to adapt to that. We're adding a few categories to make it easier for our users to follow the topics they're interested in and discover similar ones. 
    We've narrowed it down to the following:
    - an Asia-centric forum for weeaboos, koreaboos, people pretending to be asian, jvloggers/kvloggers
    - Youtubers, with Beauty Gurus being their own subsection
    - Cosplay personalities
    - Gaming/Twitch personalities
    - Models/Lifestyle (Instagrammers and other "selfie-famous" people that don't belong to a specific subculture)
    - Art / Music
    Massive topics will receive their own subforum so we can allow for a broader spectrum of conversation without cluttering the main discussion.
    Hard-to-categorize snowflakes will be sorted into the forum most relevant to their notoriety, and we will use a tagging system so you can see all topics under a certain tag regardless of which forum they're in. To make it even easier for you to keep track of your favorite discussions, you can create your own topic list with just the threads you want to see. Simply click the "Follow This" button on the top right of the topic you're viewing and bookmark your personal overview: https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/followed/
    We will start to move topics within the next few days, until then please take the opportunity to leave your feedback.

  3. Nyx added a post in a topic @ Mods? Nyx? Anyone?   

    Hi friends,
    I am alive, things have been really busy on my end.
    I tried to add in anti-spam tools and it messed with a lot of settings I need to work on so some things have been wonky, including some current mods accidentally being booted. The site isn't abandoned, I haven't been working on it as much during the past couple of weeks, I quit my real life job so have been overloaded with wrapping that up and I paid the server bill a bit late this month so the site was down.
    I'm trying to rebuild the team, that is the top priority right now. I have to delegate conducting the mod interviews to a head mod, those are happening soon. PULL has grown massively since I first took it on, and it's extremely important to make sure new users can be on-boarded so we don't get spam on the site, that's what's most important and has been the bulk of what I work on on the site nowadays.
    I'd rather not create a forum for "downtime," that splinters the site and completely splintered the lolcow community, I don't want to see that happen to PULL. Feel free to chat on discord if the site goes down, but I bought an upgrade for the server space a few months ago so it shouldn't be really going down. 
    I'm not sure what else to really say, I'm trying to be as transparent as possible. I'm really, truly sorry I haven't been as available. I do care a lot about this community. I should be more active and able to work on the site and with the community in the coming weeks.

  5. Nyx added a post in a topic rin / gothfruits   

    Please, let's not police the language of others. There are a lot of VERY strong opinions people have on gender here, but it's not your place to tell others what they can/can't say.

  7. Nyx added a post in a topic Can the mods interfere more when rule 7 is ignored?   

    Yes, giving a reason as to why a poster should have action taken against them is really helpful. Even something as simple as "this post is armchair diagnosis" helps us in that we don't have to sort through pages of context to take action, and can keep doing work in other areas of the site.

    Honestly? I've repeated this over and over and over. We still barely get any reports. I'm not inundated with them. We'll get maybe one report a day. Please try to bring our attention to things that are an issue. Thanks.

  9. Nyx added a post in a topic Michelle Moé   

    Hi all.
    Please don't use the downvote button just because you disagree with people. Please be civil. Not sure why downvote brigading is so intense on this thread but I get a lot of complaints so please quit it.

  10. Nyx added a post in a topic WANTED: Artist for 2019 banner   

    Please don't nominate snowflakes for the banner here, this thread is strictly for artists to post their work. We'll have a thread for this soon.

  11. Nyx added a post in a topic Can the mods interfere more when rule 7 is ignored?   

    As Yuuna said, if you see any posts violating the rules, report them and we will at least look at the situation.
    I'd like to point out, we also have three/four moderators at any given time for a site with over 20k members. This is absolutely not a small community, and we can't monitor every single thread.
    We have a more lax moderation style, but you don't see every single ban that's issued. Most of the time we don't come barging into threads but will quietly ban troublemakers from posting going forward. 
    Let me know if there are any other questions!

  13. Nyx added a post in a topic icy_tenshi   

    Don't worry, a lot of snowflakes threaten (or even attempt) police involvement, but talking about someone's social media isn't illegal in the slightest. At the most, police will probably tell her to be less public and to block haters. There is no way she'd be actually able to get people fined for such a harmless thread. Don't panic and don't let her intimidate you into deleting anything, it's absolutely a bluff.

  14. Nyx added a post in a topic Jaclyn Hill   

     If you want to make a Jaclyn thread, go ahead. If she were "paying us off" this thread itself would be taken down. No one's made a thread about her before, THAT'S why she doesn't have a thread.
    Please don't spread dumb rumors, PULL mods are paid $0 despite the hard work they do on a daily basis to keep this site running. I make payments mostly out of my own pocket, I do not profit from running PULL. We don't have ads, we don't have sponsors, please don't make up garbage.
