It would be nice to talk about stoner meet ups and lolitas that are also stoners without the usual comments coming up.

I feel like there is actually a decent sized community of lolitas that are stoners and that the cultures cross paths a lot more than one would think.

It's not only legal in some places now but it's becoming more and more acceptable.

But no. Some asshat has to spout memes, claim degeneracy, and perpetuate some kind of ideology that people coming to 4chan should change their ways and be moral upright citizens who are straight edge.

>> No.9983491

Yeah we do.

My two cents: no more plus sized threads until everyone agrees on what that means. The whole "plus-size-for-lolita" versus Western plus size has people confused and angry, and then there's the problem of infiltration from /fit/, shitting up the thread with their whole fat=death thing. Plus the occasional ana-chan who really doesn't know what fat looks like posting normal-sized people on the thread. It's an unnecessary minefield--we have the ita thread to showcase the bad-looking fatties, and decent-looking fatties pop up on CoF every once in a while.

If you need inspo that much for fat lolitas (or you're a fetishist), just follow #plussizelolita on Insta.

And mods, please sage all attempts at plus size threads (like you wisely did 2 threads ago).

idk senpai, they regularly recommend it to people here for problems that an actual doctor should probably address.

I don't get this. Why not have stoner friends, and then lolita friends seperate. Why can't you enjoy the hobbies on their own?

Lol yeah. No link at all between cosplay, lolita and BPD/bipolar girls. None whatsoever. Not like Lolita is full of ddlg fetishists.

I have never, ever met a demographic of people as so prone to sleeping around, having loose sexual morals and so on as cosplayers. Or hell even weeaboo girls in general.

Self-posts should be strongly avoided like in the past. cgl is becoming more and more like a place where friends from all your petty comms meet up to talk bad about each other while trying not to be discovered.

Everyone should fucking stop talking about costhots and patreon, everybody is doing it and most threads are a cover up for people hoping to find the magical key to getting patreon money.

And finally, idiots who make their own threads for things there are already threads for should be anihilated. Ignore them, sage them, anything. Don't send them to the goddamn help thread. We're not here to feed the birds.

And finally, people in the goddamn help thread should know what they are talking about. I'm tired of going there and only finding terrible advice. It seems like nobody knows how to make a cosplay anymore.

weight, recreational drugs/alcohol and sexual preference have absolutely nothing to do with /cgl/ therefore should not be discussed on /cgl/

I think its easier to just blanket ban the dramatic shit but thats why sites like lolcow exist now. The real problem is that most of the board users are rigid and salty and wholly not prepared to hear opposing points of view or discuss them. (looking at both pro and anti stoner chans, among so many others) The biggest board criticism I can make is that all the users aren't "making this board what you want it to be".

A lot of people here take offense to being lumped into certain groups.

For some reason, as soon as one anon makes a blanket complaint about a certain type of people within their communities be it cosplay or lolita - other anons feel the need to pour into the thread to tell everyone how this just isn't the case for themselves.

I wish threads on this board were faster. But there’s not much you can do about that. Coming from other boards like /co/ I was annoyed to see how slow this board can be. Also I wish threads about cosplay were more varied.

It just occurred to me as I was contemplating the state of the CoF thread, that I would love to dump, but I fucking hate captcha and I have better things to spend my $20 than post pics in a dying slovakian fishing board.

So I guess that's my two cents on what's killing /cgl/

>> No.9986619

I agree. Original content is necessary to keep stuff fresh and on-topic on /cgl/, but the captcha is hella annoying. They recently ramped up the difficulty of the captcha too, I think.

>> No.9986701

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, even if I know nobody will take it seriously.

Nothing on this board will get better until we fix the mother fucking sticky. At least linking the lolita guidebook would help tremendously. That way we spend less time spoonfeeding and anyone who is lurking to learn has a half decent chance of knowing the basics. None of you can deny that anybody interested in cosplay or lolita would flounder miserably trying to learn without some kind of direction. Why would they want to come back if at the first instance of them asking a question they get hit with a barrage of insults about them being a newfag and how annoying summer is. Granted I get pissed when people ask stupid questions, but as I said ages ago none of that will get better unless they have a resource to reference before asking questions.

Money is not an issue.
Time is also not an issue - I can actually just get it delivered to my house.
what? you mean grinding up bud? That only happens if you buy green flower... there are so many more options. I rarely grind up weed.
>just to barely get high
holy shit I don't know where you live but I have no trouble getting a good high like ever, we have quality shit grown here.

Seconding the anon who said this board takes bait too easily. I know it's fun to rail and complain but I wish people would make an effort to have a quality discussion and ignore bait and nitpicks. This kills the board.

I agree with you about fixing the sticky, but at the same time
>implying newfags read it in the first place

>> No.9986877

No, I probably should have been more specific with the reply. Just because the name of the fashion has elegant in it doesnt mean the fashion is about having an elegant personality. Sure, it's in the name but it doesn't mean that you have to change your personality to fit it. That's something only weebs and roleplayers think about lolita.

>> No.9986879

I've been coming here and lurking for 3 ish years. This is my first post, and its just to mirror this. If you go to other boards you'll see the threads are full of ignored bait, but come to cgl and even the weakest, most bland and obvious bait immediately gets jumped on and derails the thread. Just look at this thread, do you even need more proof?

People struggle to have discussions because they are too busy blogposting and falling for 2iq bait posts. Feels threads are also one of the worst things to happen to this board.

If you're too fucking poor to own lolita fashion but have an interest in it then at least have the decency to shut up and lurk and not shit up the place.

>> No.9986883

I think it's because this board has a higher proportion of users who are active on other forms of social media and don't fully understand the culture here.

>> No.9986884

Maybe we need a new sticky afterall then. Then at least we can just ban people that don't read it. Our jannies are pretty good we just need to make it easier to moderate this place.

Jannies if you're reading this pls delete the feels posters hives.

Theres nothing wrong with new people asking questions. When you demonize them for being curious you give a community a bad image.

That's what the stupid question threads are for. Otherwise it's just shitting up the board.

They don't go through all our shit and I can't blame them for that. But they do delete things that get reported and crossboarder cancer threads pretty quick, take a look in the archives. Problem is gulls barely report anything and just bitch instead.

I smoke too but I never understood people wanting to do it in Lolita, like full blown. Wouldn't you rather be comfortable and unwind?? It sounds like an addiction at that point (and yes I believe it can become one as with literally anything).

>> No.9987163

How is this a board criticism?

>> No.9987310 [DELETED] 

Why wouldn't you want to be cute while you unwind? Lolita =/= uncomfortable (unless you're wearing something OTT maybe, then it's more unwieldy)

>It sounds like an addiction at that point
Unless it has taken over your life and ruined it, then it doesn't really matter if it's an addiction.

I wear lolita and smoke to go do things that are fun - not necessarily to sit on my ass. It really sucks that people assume if you smoke weed you must be a lazy bum.

Like maybe if you just smoke indica all the time like a wastoid but I prefer sativas which can even help curb your appetite.

People who find lolita uncomfortable in general baffle me. Why on earth do people wear uncomfy clothing? All my dresses fit me just fine...

I just started using cbd oil for anxiety. I'm on day 2 and I can't tell if it's having an effect. I have 250mg in a 15ml bottle and I'm put a whole dropperfull under my tongue, so that's like 15 individual drops I think. Am I doing something wrong?

>I'm so scared of dripping this shit on my brand
I've never gotten anything on my brand regardless of what I was using.

Also - it sounds like you're just using CBD for medical purposes so I'm not sure why you need to do that in your brand unless you're trying to be less anxious at meets or something.

If you have those edible dabber things you can just put that stuff on regular food and eat it that way if you're worried about it getting everywhere. I know it's super sticky but just pretend like it's syrup and use napkins/qtips or something.

>> No.9988109

Some people actually wear it outside of meets, anon.

>> No.9988197

I wear it outside of meets all the time.

But anon was talking about trying to curb anxiety and being worried about getting everywhere.

My only advice is be careful. It's a lot like syrup.

I've never gotten anything on my brand while smoking.

There are some real stuck up people on this board. So many snobs pearl clutching over this or that. Especially the lolitas. It really puts cosplay in a bad light. 4chan is full of arseholes but for the most part all the different boards have fun and shitposting is ironic. But /cgl/ is the only place where that same shitposting culture gets you moaned at.

I've been here since around 2008, and it's much less cosplay focused than it used to be. I don't think that's lolitas fault, though. Most of them used LJ at the time. We had cosplay.com and other forums, and it was easier to share image dumps and bitch about certain people here.

I do miss the power hour threads. And I miss how much more of a community we had. I know everyone hates tripfags site-wide, but we had a lot of helpful and interesting ones. I only remember a few, like Masa. But I remember that they were active in the WIP threads and help threads.

>> No.9991896

I don't think they can technically delete feels threads. They're not against the rules. If gulls take it up with mods then they can get them banned. If that happens then jans can delete them. It would be for the better though. Feels threads aren't relevant to the board.

>> No.9991913

I wish horny males would stop making threads.

This is really funny because I was around to watch mods repeatedly delete feels threads and explaining that they weren't jfash or cosplay related and would do much better on another board.

It's the gulls who repeatedly created feels threads until the mods let them stay.

So I'm kind of not really surprised the jannies ignore reports on feels threads. You have your sempais to thank for making feels thread a constant thing on cgl.

>> No.9992214

I feel like there's really only so much cosplay talk you can have though. Most everything to make has good tutorials now, so people need less help.
