Old Mar 17th, 2008, 07:25 PM        THINK OF FUN THINGS WE CAN DO WITH THE BOARD


In all seriousness - reading over the boards recently, someone asked what the difference was these days between i-mockery and the various hellholes of the internet, and I'm honestly hard-pressed to offer a distinction.

So, I would like to open the floor to suggestions on how we can improve the boards.

And use your inside voice, because I will be heavily moderating this thread.

*POSITIVE VIBES.

Where things better when the Mock Wars forum was open?

If you're having trouble telling I-Mock apart from the rest of the internet, look at three or four threads on the Articles Discussion forum.

That thread is the safety valve that keeps the boards from reaching critical lame. We need it!

Unlock the chat room thread, man. You're scaring me.

But in all seriousness while I've not been here for as long as some other people I'd say that the majority of the original posters which made this forum what it was back in the day have long since stopped posting for various reasons and as such it's unlikely you ever COULD get back the uniqueness of i-mockery as it was.
Which isn't to say the forum is now worthless. I've been through a ton of forums in the three years I've been posting here and yet despite probably getting the harshest reception here of all the boards I've signed up to over the years this is the one I've stuck with.

The thing which sets this place apart from the other hellholes is that everyone is quite concious of avoiding 'net clichés and repetition, which are the worst things about the 'net.
It almost goes too far sometimes with most members being terrified of admitting to liking any current internet fad for fear of being ousted from the forum forever for being to mainstream in their e-comedy taste. But I think it's better this way than the other forums I've been on were posting "FTW!!!11" is considered a constructive comment.

I think that maybe putting an end to shit like "THIS THREAD IS NOW ABOUT HOT GUYS WHO WE WANT TO FUCK" might cut down on the random pictures, hilarious captions, and general derailing of regular discussions. Also, maybe stop allowing random pictures of 15 year old girls with photoshopped jizz all over their face (I'm looking at you, liquid).

In general, it seems like the boards used to offer more in the way of decent threads because they didn't get filled with all of the 4chan type shit.

Of course, I guess we can just wait until the other 3 out of 10 posts are variations of "i like/hate him/her/it ;< :mario."

Nah, it's pretty similar to the 4chan I remember.

I've seen enough to know that the asinine shit you and your ilk keep posting isn't exactly too far off.

;<
Edit: I think that a place to dump all the shit posts is great. Unfortunately, the kind of stupidity that thrives in the chat room thread is starting to seep out into the other forums.

Yeah seriously that picture in the "what are you listening to thread" was borderline kiddy-porn. I couldn't see any humour in it whatsoever, and I dare say neither would any of of colleagues had I opened that thread at work as I often do.

I don't think people should be able to post stuff like that or this place will end up like those chan sites that are all about teenagers laughing at how outrageous they're being in the Internet.

What was that thread even about before that? And how many pictures were posted since then? Three?

Can you explain what you're talking about here? To be frank, most of the trolling I've witnessed lately has come from you.

What sets this place apart from the rest (for me), is that a lot of intelligent flamers post here. This was the only place of worth for a good argument. You can't get that at 4chan, etc... Yes, I love arguing on the internet. I think everyone here does. Why else would we come here? All humor is insulting. I-Mockery is the highest caliber of insult available. Perhaps all the comparing needs to be flipped. They need to be compared to you.

Perhaps mocking forum users is not the way to go anymore. That would be sad. In my parts of the internet you were held as gods. I don't know why you took away the mock wars forum, I came back right as you closed it. I came here for just that reason. I can easily turn my mock off and be a productive poster, but I don't think people come here for that.

I guess the question is, what would you like? I know it's not an easy question and that this thread is probably created to find what is bugging you. I hope you find it.

I wouldn't have a problem with the board becoming an intelligent flaming forum, but that's not really what I'm seeing go on lately. There's really a whole lot of nothing going on. Not even mocking.

Mock wars was closed because that forum was god awful. You never really needed permission to make fun of people in any forum, anyway.

I don't know what it was about before. I can't remember that part. What I do remember is opening it up to see you mentioning how emo guys are hot, followed by posting and commenting on a few pictures. Oh, and at some point the title of the thread changed to something about cock sucking. So, yeah. Good work.

I've been trolling? You fucking ASK for me to comment on something when you post "GEE I CAN'T BELIEVE WE HAVE A WII THREAD WHERE ZOMBOID HASN'T COMMENTED". Not to mention the fact that you went around in 3 or 4 other threads and made similar comments.

I really don't give a fuck if you want to have your ass pumped by mario. What annoys me is your antagonistic fanboy shit going into multiple threads and then trying to claim that I'm trolling.

Calm down, dearest.

I am honestly trying to understand what you're talking about, here. Does me talking about emo boys make you uncomfortable? Is it really such a problem to have upset you so badly?

And no, I did not ask you to comment on Tadao's Wii thread. Nor did I ask for your subsequent replies to it and the deliberate derailing of the thread thereof.

Can you show me how you came to these conclusions? Maybe I'm missing something.

Anytime anyone has an opinion that goes against your love for wii and mario strikers you go into defence mode and start bashing. That's not us. You ask for it and then cry until chojin shows up.
