THE FORUM EVENT COMMENTARY THREAD
 
Ok, if you wish to discuss a forum event that's going on, please do it in this thread rather than in the actual thread that the contest is taking place.

Matt Harty Mar 19th, 2006 06:48 PM

people shouldnt be allowed to completely stray off the storyline

Mockery Mar 20th, 2006 02:39 PM

Yeah I gotta agree with that. If someone's post isn't funny, a person doesn't have to reply and make fun of that post... that's not going to help the "story" progress. And if a person wants to change the direction that a story is going, that's fine, but you gotta at least have a good segue into it.

On a side note, these are some real good prizes I'm puttin' up for you guys and I'm gonna keep doing it every month because I want to help make the boards that much more fun. I hope more of you will start entering these things. There's a lot of funny people on these forums, and it's a shame to see them be lazy and not participate in these storytime contests.

MetalMilitia Mar 20th, 2006 03:14 PM

I would particpate mabey but i've never seen any of the shows which the events are about :(

also most events get so suckified by people i've never heard of I dont feel like adding anything to the comic. :(

Matt Harty Mar 20th, 2006 04:29 PM

I think that's the main problem, which can already be seen in the newest contest. It's too hard to make a continuation of that shit.

Fathom Zero Mar 20th, 2006 06:27 PM

Ditto, but if it was a Laugh In DVD, then I'd be more inclined.

Chojin Mar 20th, 2006 07:15 PM

I don't think the entries should depend on reliance on idiots. These should just be one-shot pictures instead of a story, at least until we have some sort of screening process.

AChimp Mar 28th, 2006 10:00 PM

I think I should be allowed to delete entries that suck.

Jixby Phillips Mar 29th, 2006 12:45 AM

I SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO DELETE YOU THAT SUCKS

AChimp Mar 29th, 2006 12:31 PM

HEY LETS JUST REMEMBER WHO'S AN ADMIN HERE ALLRIGHT????

Juttin Apr 1st, 2006 12:26 AM

charles incharge I willfightyou!


I'm the Faggot!

That aside,I think entries made with MSPaint should be deleted.

Also,the one with the "Fecal Matter" everywhere.


It isn't funny >:

MLE Apr 1st, 2006 02:28 AM

Rule 9. Images must be manipulated in some way.
Do not just take a screenshot and add word bubbles.


MORE THAN HALF THE ENTRIES ARE THIS >: >: >:

Jixby Phillips Apr 1st, 2006 04:43 AM

I like the ones where i turned it upside down

I disagree, I think that if a submission is funny or relevant it should stay. It shouldnt matter if it was made in MSPaint or photoshop (remember, some of us dont have enough money to purchuase a copy of photoshop or we lack the computer power to run it).

But I think that there should be some kind of screening put in place to keep the bad submissions out. This newest event as well as the electric company one dont have the same value as the path of neo, too many idiots putting in shit and dick jokes.

GADZOOKS Apr 16th, 2006 03:18 AM

I agree with one-shots!

Mockery Apr 16th, 2006 03:01 PM

Voting for the Charles In Charge event will take place soon and then the resutls will be posted. Thanks to those of you who took the time to enter.

Also, another forum event contest will be coming up shortly :o

Eh I'll take a shot at the new contest when it comes out. It can't hurt to try :)










I suck at photoshop.

Emu Apr 22nd, 2006 01:27 AM

I think Chojin just won this contest

Esuohlim Apr 22nd, 2006 01:33 AM

My entry got deleted

Fathom Zero Apr 22nd, 2006 01:47 AM

Porque?

Esuohlim Apr 22nd, 2006 01:51 AM



Robot Frank. :(

Fake robot/human hybrid :sigh

Fathom Zero Apr 22nd, 2006 01:56 AM

I'm sorry. :(

Esuohlim Apr 22nd, 2006 02:08 PM

I think ArrowX's should be deleted too >:

MLE Apr 22nd, 2006 02:29 PM

his is a beast and a robot at least, not a man.

and a man.

Chojin Apr 22nd, 2006 03:02 PM

Yeah but all the same I think ArrowX should be banned from everything.

ArrowX Apr 22nd, 2006 08:04 PM

I think you can lick my balls >:

MLE Apr 23rd, 2006 02:30 AM

I think he can't.

ArrowX Apr 23rd, 2006 02:59 AM

I think you hurt my feelings :(

pjalne Apr 23rd, 2006 11:04 AM

On a lighter note, the crowbot was leaps and bounds better than the gerbil thing. Made me smile.

Chojin Apr 23rd, 2006 04:19 PM

By the way i'm not actually in the contest, I'm just here to look pretty.

Johnny Couth Apr 24th, 2006 06:59 PM

Chojin's was awesome, I can't compete with that.

Guitar Woman Apr 24th, 2006 11:56 PM

Hey stupidkraut if you're gonna have a motorcycle transformer at least put a goat head on it and call it "Goatercycle" like I was gonna do >:

That's a shame. A DAMN shame. On the bright side, without your entry I have a slightly higher % of winning.

I changed my mind, jerks.

F*ck you for not having a decent text thingie MS Paint

Haw haw, Emu didn't name his.
Unless it was called Matt Groening.

Emu Apr 27th, 2006 10:27 PM

it is

Sethomas Apr 27th, 2006 11:42 PM

The test for whether or not there is justice in the world lies in the fact that blackflag should win, and if he doesn't, justice is a sham.

That Man Apr 28th, 2006 07:09 AM

Justice IS a sham.

Emu Apr 28th, 2006 06:53 PM

You know what else is a sham? These "writings" of yours. It's been half a damn month and you've been given tons of ideas and you haven't written a damn thing, you fucking lying cunt.

Juttin Apr 30th, 2006 01:30 PM

The bear-lamp has my vote.

One thing,though....

Why is it on when it's un-plugged?

xbxDaniel Apr 30th, 2006 10:48 PM

Satanic rituals.

MLE May 3rd, 2006 01:51 PM

If he couldn't work while unplugged, how could he fight crime :rolleyes

executioneer May 3rd, 2006 09:15 PM

thats not even a plug its a communications array DISGUISED as a plug geez

MarioRPG May 3rd, 2006 09:42 PM

oh my, that pig can't "breath".

GIJOEKAMALA May 4th, 2006 02:22 PM

Spelling error. Fixing...no too lazy!

GIJOEKAMALA May 4th, 2006 02:48 PM

Eh, what the Hell I need an excuse to put off finishing my finals.

Guitar Woman May 4th, 2006 03:19 PM

So when your teacher asks you why your finals aren't done, you're going to say you couldn't do it because you had to fix a spelling error in a retarded unfunny photoshop?

GIJOEKAMALA May 4th, 2006 03:44 PM

That's exactly what I'm going to say!

Excellent. I'd give at least an extra day for that reason.

By the way, I like the triple exlcamation and question marks. Nice touch.

Misdemonar May 4th, 2006 06:29 PM

man what is the proper terminlogy for someone you're sending a secret santa gift to

I mean if you're RECEIVING the person who SENT it is your "Secret Santa", but what are you to them a "Secret Child" or what

xbxDaniel Dec 6th, 2006 10:09 PM

Sethomas' bit was fucking hilarious! One of the funniest things I've read on the forums.

A recipient? Or, in Seth's case, "someone who got screwed over" ?

Maybe it DOES and you just didn't realize it, because it's such a huge secret. :faint

i finally sent mine off, it was 8 bucks to mail which made me happy because everyone else was spending like 9 :0

That's stickin' it to THE MAN. You've got the SYSTEM figured out, Noob3. :o

i was sorely tempted to abuse my powers as mail guy to send my package overnight for free :(

liquidstatik Dec 12th, 2006 06:11 PM

im still waiting for mine ;o

Jixby Phillips Dec 13th, 2006 05:22 AM

Oh hey I guess I have to defend my present now but I will do it here becusae nobody wants to hear my bellyaches and also because that thread is not about secret santa letters and this is really close to being a secret santa letter.

I actually spent more time getting a present than I let on. I spent two afternoons shopping. Many of the things I saw seemed uninspiring. Then I thought of Silly String, which I REALLY had to tear my city apart to even find. Getting people together for a silly string war seemed like good fodder for a picture story, or at least I thought so. I also had unrealistic expectations as to how much silly string actually cost, and how much I could get with 20 bucks. I imagined maybe twice the ammount. 8 cans of silly string would have been impressive right? I can remember getting ONE can of silly string as a present as a kid and it running out like a flash, and being sad. I also thought of the poison notes joke while buying the silly string, which I now commited to because I had spent so much time running around town trying to find any.

I woke up pretty late on the day of the deadline and I had about five hours to pack the silly string before the post office closed. I realized I needed to spice up the gift. Then a genuine paranoid concern over the poison notes came over me. So I wrote the letters. And I tried to make them funny! It'd be like a singer writing someone a song as a gift, or an artist painting a painting as a gift! I'm not any of those things. I am a sorta-funny guy. SO i wrote a sorta funny letter! Then, another sorta-funny letter!

I was proud of myself for coming up with a present that wasn't just a bunch of random stuff, and tried to get a present that was conceptual and also an experiance in of itself... not to put people down who DID send random stuff; I had a ball with spenglers present and immediately after I got done playing with his stuff, I started to silently panic to myself and I truly regretted not going with the randon approach for Dr. Boogie's presents.

So yeah, the present kinda sucks. But I tried, alright? Honest.

Merry Christmas, and suck my dick

Nah I don't mean the thing about "suck my dick," I'm just blowing off steam, you know? we're cool right?

Mockery Dec 13th, 2006 06:11 AM

:themoreyouknow

Thanks for clarifying that Jixby, at least we know you did try. That's weird you had such a hard time finding silly string though... just cuz I can't even think of a time that I've been in a toy store or party supplies store that didn't have seemingly unlimited supplies of it.

Your letters definitely showed plenty of effort, but yeah, from an outsider's point of view and a recipients point of view, without any explanation, the cans o' silly string definitely seemed like a minimal effort/last minute kind o' gift. Don't worry though, we're not saying you pulled a "zeldasbiggestfan" or anything. ;)

Jixby Phillips Dec 13th, 2006 06:47 AM

The lack of toy stores in redding is disgusting. I was sad to find out that the two big ones I remembered as a kid don't even exist anymore. The one in the mall is toast; the closest thing resembling a toy store there is a GAME AND PUZZLE store (yeah thats fine if you're a nerd) Toys 'r' us got torn down becuase kids nowadays enjoy camera phones instead of toys. I guess all of kiddom collectively decided that they in fact DO wanna grow up :(

Mockery Dec 13th, 2006 07:01 AM

Damn, isn't Redding like a suburbian area too? Cuz most areas like that are flooded with toy stores.

So no toy stores in Redding. Please explain to me: why do you live there?

Zomboid Dec 13th, 2006 07:20 PM

I know I'm in no real position to comment on this since I pretty much shit the bed with it last year, but it seems like everyone's a little too anal about it this year. I can understand why, to a degree, but I think if it had stayed small like last year and you didn't HAVE TO MAKE A FUNNY STORY FOR THE PEOPLE TO LAUGH AT along with the pictures, it'd be a lot more relaxed.

I'm not trying to say it completely blows ass or anything, I just think sending funny/cool gifts to people who've been here for a while seemed like more fun than a bunch of try-hards making lengthy posts full of WACKY pictures that aren't all that funny but get a ton of "AW THAT WAS REAL GOOD DUDE!" posts nevertheless. There've been a few good ones but for the most part it seems like a project a teacher would force you to do in elementary school.

Mockery Dec 13th, 2006 07:22 PM

There is no requirement to "make a funny story", it's just encouraged. The rules state that the only thing you HAVE to do is post pictures of the items you got.

And I think this year's event is going better so far and the posts are much more entertaining.

FartinMowler Dec 13th, 2006 07:31 PM

Well, this is the first time I've been involved in something that I want to post something fun...I wish that I had of sent more stuff to Spengler. I'm waiting until Friday when my kids can help (my daughter knows how to use the Mac movie thing better than me). Not everyone can do something fun and it's fun to see that atleast some of the long time Mockers are actually giving and not a bunch of jerks...

Zomboid Dec 13th, 2006 07:35 PM

Bah! It's pretty obvious that at this point anyone who didn't post a story would be shit on by nearly everyone else in the event. Just seems like more than the minimum is more than expected :O. That's not to say that zelda shouldn't have been given shit and I think he should be banned because that was horribly cheap and unfair.

I disagree about this year being more entertaining though. While there's definitely more participants, I just can't even bring myself to sit through an entire "story" from some new person that I don't give a shit about. Jixby's stuff was good, and I imagine that chojin, schimid, ninja and a few others will have some funny stuff again, but I kinda don't even bother reading the stuff that accompanies the pictures of the newer people.

I'm just not gonna say anything else if I can help it because I'm sounding like a disgruntled "vet" when all I wanted to do was say that last year was better :(

Edit: The fact that there was a kid who looked like he was 10 entered in this was hilarious though.

Emu Dec 13th, 2006 08:39 PM

I kind of agree with Zomboid :( Part of why I haven't posted my pictures yet is my paranoia about making a story (I thought it was required, and I have had some ideas, but every time I think about doing it I get awashed with that "I'm not as funny as those guys" paranoia) although the crux of the biscuit is that it's finals week and I have a lot of shit I have to do, which will thankfully be over Friday. I'm going to post pictures then if not sooner.

Mockery Dec 13th, 2006 09:32 PM

I honestly don't care if someone posts a story or not. If someone feels like they need to, well that's their own problem. All I've asked for people to do is post the pics of the gifts they got and tell us all who their Secret Santa is. Simple as that.

MetalMilitia Dec 15th, 2006 02:38 AM

I just read through the whole pictures thread and some people did some funny stuff.
I think Jixby has to win as he obviously put a whole bunch of effort into making his videos and, apart from a few bits which I thought missed the mark slightly, they where extremely funny.

Willie's presents where really good and it looks like he put alot of thought into them.

Oh, and I quite liked MLE's post because it had a cat in :/


I guess I somewhat agree with Zomboid that I don't care about the new people that have never posted outside the secret santa thread. Can't really see how they would enjoy it either :/

Either way it's been a good effort this year! :)

Chojin Dec 15th, 2006 03:07 AM

Well IIIII enjoyed their posts you pretentious faggots >:

MarioRPG Dec 15th, 2006 04:18 PM

I'll be getting my film back near wednesday for those interested.

Grislygus Apr 28th, 2007 05:54 PM

Man, how the fuck can anything compete with Willie's horror tree

I am jealous

executioneer Apr 29th, 2007 05:10 AM

i don't even want that movie :(

executioneer Apr 29th, 2007 05:36 AM

srsly i'd like to remove myself from competition for this movie :(
