So, my tumblr dashboard is blowing up with OMG 4CHAN IS ATTACKING US and it got me thinking about the lolita community on different sites, and which are better for what.

These are the main ones I can think of, let me know if I'm missing any: /cgl/, Livejournal comms, Facebook, tumblr

>what do you consider the pros and cons of each for the lolita community?
>which do you use regularly? why/why not?

>> No.7657805

I really miss the days when LJ was active. I think it was the best format for this and other communities.
Tumblr, I don't fucking understand. It's decent for disseminating information but then again not really. My dashboard gets hundreds of posts daily and I don't even follow all that many people. I feel like I could really easily miss a new release or some important information because it's so hectic. How do people deal with this?
It also has no comment system so I feel interaction on tumblr is really poor... but maybe I just haven't utilized it too well.
Facebook is fine but it's kind of hard to find lolita communities on it. I don't even know what the main lolita facebook page is, or if it even exists. EGL and other similar LJ communities always linked to each other - EGL linked to sales, brand comms, and every sub comm imaginable. sailormoonfans was always associated with serasell and smcollector. I don't even know where to sell sailor moon stuff any more so I just list it on ebay (but that's a whole other rant)
tl;dr I'm an oldfag and I miss LJ's heyday

If I followed the story correctly, a bunch of feminists from tumblr decided to "raid" /b/ yesterday to, I don't know, enlighten the special board about how horrible and mean they were.

The /b/tards jumped at the opportunity to do something and spammed gore/weird porn/cp/etc. on tumblr with SJW tags like feminism.

I honestly found it rather humorous.

Honestly, considering all currently used platforms, Facebook would be the best to keep up with news and releases, if there was such a community/page. I'd personally prefer a public page since it would stop newbie help posts and general chatting. I'd rather help and concrit to be contained in separate communities from news.
Tumblr is a mess. I feel only private groups really work, but they support a really small amount of people until they become intolerable.

Tumblr Pros
>Pretty picture posts pretty common
>Can usually filter shit easily to prevent from seeing certain lolitas/unrelated content

Tumblr Cons
>If people don't tag, can't always filter posts
>Not all blogs are 100% lolita-related, so get extraneous stupid Teen Wolf and Supernatural posts slipping through when not tagged properly
>Constant "TRIGGERS!" and social commentary posts that aren't always tagged sometimes slip through

I come to Tumblr for pretty pictures, not your personal causes. If I want to read about any of that, there are other sites I can use.

4Chan Pros
>Pretty pictures are organised into threads
>Positive threads more common than you'd think (draw threads, coord advice threads, etc.)
>Anonymity can be nice when wanting to ask a question/join a discussion
>Find out all the drama without getting involved in any of it
>Auto-archiving is nice

4Chan Cons
>Exact opposite of Tumblr SJW posts pretty regularly made, which gets annoying because of that tryhard nature that comes along with it
>Negative/annoying threads more common than good (how do I sell my panties online/get a sugardaddy/become a cam girl?, how do I get qt3.14 cosplay grill?, /fit/ here, rate me, etc.)
>Can't pre-filter threads about things I don't care about, so just have to keep hiding them when they pop up

So basically, better for discussion about things you don't want to ask publicly (how do I wash my socks, guiz?), but that also means you get subjects that no one in their right mind would discuss publicly (how do I get a daddy, guiz?).

LJ Pros
>Used for a long time, huge archives of information
>Better communities have posts tagged/sorted into memories
>Posts have a variety of formatting options

LJ Cons
>It's dying
>A lot of communities are *too* large to be well-organised and tagged, so searching for a specific post can take forever, especially if it's older
>a lot of information is just plain outdated

But I've used it for so long, I don't feel like I can just dump it.

Do you guys just follow shitty people? I use tumblr but am very selective with who I follow because 1) everyone in the community reblogs the same shit so I only follow those who maintain a good blog and 2) tumblr is a site that I go to to view pretty photos and destress/waste time, not deal with a bunch of twats/sjws.
I'm also not in any fandoms (personally hate all fandoms on tumblr in a very base sort of way), which protects me from a lot of this bullshit, I guess. Tumblr sucks as an online community hosting site, but it's great for following individuals, keeping a personal archive of outfits/styles/etc, or following shop-specific blogs.
I only browse LJ for the sales posts and the occasional laugh. It's dead other than around wardrobe season, which is still a very fun thing.
Facebook is great for keeping updated and interacting with your community, if you have a FB. I have wanted to deactivate numerous times in the past few years but have stayed for my comm.

look through somebody's archive before you follow them. get an idea of how frequently they post, what kinds of content, how many shitposts they make per month and decide from there. blogs dedicated to [x] subject where the admins have other blogs that contain their personal business are the best. if you're following a general blog that posts lots of stuff from different areas, i like to ensure they post about 3-5 subjects i'm interested in, just to keep the ratio of good:bad up.

sometimes you follow someone, its good for the first while, then they gradually change into blogging shit you don't care about. if they tag stuff and you can be bothered fiddling around with addons you can filter it out, or just unfollow them. unfollowing isn't an insult or a crime, don't feel obligated to keep somebody on your dash if you don't like their content.

uh, one time my fire alarm broke and we were a bit stoned and nothing would turn it off except to take it out of the ceiling, and now i've got an irrational worry about setting off the fire alarm. it's pretty intense, actually.

i wouldn't go to a website where a shrill, randomly-timed blare will sound, and then continue to go to that site while asking repeatedly for the website to stop using that feature. "triggering" on tumblr, if i'm a piss baby and use it like an entitled renounced-oppressor, is like me going to a website like that but having "WARNING, ALARM WILL SOUND IN TWO SECONDS" pop up before the blare, but still complain and collecting others to complain with me until the blare becomes more gentle, with the intention of eventually removing it. could just go to a different site, or make my own website, but no.

I got better but really, I was depressed all along, probably just looking for excuses. It's a slow process, trying to get away from that sort of thing. It took me weeks to block it all out and months to fully get over it to the point I could actually engage on the internet again.

CONFRONTING TRIGGERS, NOT AVOIDING THEM, IS THE BEST WAY TO OVERCOME PTSD
>Trigger warnings are designed to help survivors avoid reminders of their trauma, thereby preventing emotional discomfort. Yet avoidance reinforces PTSD. Conversely, systematic exposure to triggers and the memories they provoke is the most effective means of overcoming the disorder. According to a rigorous analysis by the Institute of Medicine, exposure therapy is the most efficacious treatment for PTSD, especially in civilians who have suffered trauma such as sexual assault. For example, prolonged exposure therapy, the cognitive behavioral treatment pioneered by clinical psychologists Edna B. Foa and Barbara O. Rothbaum, entails having clients close their eyes and recount their trauma in the first-person present tense. After repeated imaginal relivings, most clients experience significant reductions in PTSD symptoms, as traumatic memories lose their capacity to cause emotional distress. Working with their therapists, clients devise a hierarchy of progressively more challenging trigger situations that they may confront in everyday life. By practicing confronting these triggers, clients learn that fear subsides, enabling them to reclaim their lives and conquer PTSD.

Lolita Updates has good info on recent releases and lolita-related news.

Daily Lolita has lots of coord pics if you're into that kind of thing. The quality is really variable. Don't read user comments because most of the people providing concrit are noobs.

Rufflechat just got started recently. Supposedly acts as a community for general discussions. Not sure yet whether it's going to be that good.

The two sales communities have a lot of overlap and you can run into shit buyers/sellers (at least at a higher frequency than on other platforms because the mods are useless and don't enforce rules). But every once in a while, you can run into a good deal. I'd say my luck on there is about 50/50.

I want to like Lillith because her videos are so good, but her voice and stupidity drives me insane.

This this. I was literally the only person in my last comm to be on lacebook, how fucked up is that? Lolitas post pictures to get epats (not that there's anything wrong with that) so intentionally restricting the number of likes you can get by nature is a completely retarded idea.
>>7664897
I agree with this for silly things like scopophobia or whatever it is. What could be more controlled than your room, looking at a picture that isn't real on your computer? Also these bitches never seem to go to therapy or anything.

Follow as many people as possible. Find a blog you like and follow the people they follow/reblog from.

I think I'm following something like 2500 people at this point. Everything averages out, I've got a pretty diverse portfolio that's probably 50% animu vaporwave, 20% JFashion, 20% porn, 10% miscellaneous.

My dash has new stuff on it every time I refresh (and it's difficult to find something I missed if I scrolled past it). I get pulses of different kinds of material depending on what time it is (timezones) and who's posting.

It's better to follow in aggregate, IMO. I'm the only one I know who does this but I don't have any of the same "tumblr SJWs err where" problems everyone else seems to.

How the fuck do you keep up with it? it drives me crazy knowing I might miss something important like friends thoughts or something

I like the youtubers too or at least people who post a few coords. I'm not picky which site as long as I know they actually wear Lolita. Too many armchair Lolitas blabbing on sites these days when they don't even wear the fashion.

I do this, except I'm currently at the maximum number of blogs you can follow and I've gotta go through and prune my list to get rid of people who are inactive or don't post stuff I like anymore.

>something important
>like friends thoughts
They're never that important. Sometimes they'll like one of my pictures and I'll visit their blog to catch up.

There's a limit?! What is it? I'm at 2,165 so I figure I'm good for a little while right?

I think that's just her voice lol.
I'd like to find more but there doesn't seem to be that many! (worth watching at least)

I like tumblr for looking at lolita and seeing a lot of pictures in one area, since they stockpile in tags nicely

I like /cgl/ for seeing critiques and lurking to better my own coords, and for hearing horror stories and drama

I like facebook for actually meeting people in my area in groups

Cons of tumblr: shitty coords everywhere, and every suggestion falls on deaf ears

Cons of /cgl/: y'all are batshit crazy

Cons of facebook: I barely use it

I only use live journal for shopping

Yeah it is. Anything can be a trigger depending on the event. It's ptsd-related.

>>7658583
That's a gross overstatement. A large number of blogs don't tag their shit at all. Some people go crazy with it, but that's tumblr for you. I've been triggered by people not posting graphic self harm images, but I unfollow them immediately and calm myself down. There's no reason to tag every little thing.

*not tagging.

How do you follow so many people? I have about 450 right now, and I can barely keep up because most of them are very active.

I think she's Filipino (if they look more asian than Hispanic, they're at the bottom of the asian hierarchy) and she's a legit camphor according to that linked tumblr... so prob never buying anything from her ever for sanitary reasons.

>XKit

This is exactly what I need! I want to keep following certain people because I can discover unreblogged and really cool images, but I don't give a fuck about their personal lives and their SJW posts; also, posting minority lolitas just because they're racial minorities instead of because they have really good outfits is just bad taste.

Yeah, IRC's pretty much dead outside of tech and filesharing comms these days.
