Well, I'm sorry if that came out wrong, but I was just curious. I really wanted to know who she is. I mean it was just a question!

we should have our own helldump forum and this should be the first thread.


hey kieffer get a blog if people wanna listen to your inane hatings about the forum/forumites, they can come to you.

let's take a look at your latest threads:

things I don't want people to do
people I hate or want to fuck
hey stop friending ME on facebook
I only read a few threads here (so I should fuck right off)
aaand two threads whose sole content should have just been posted in the crap thread.

I didn't realize it was Clara either. I knew I recognized the name, but I think there was a boy here who posted once whose name was Jacob and went by Yacob or something. I only ever talked to her once or twice on Gabbly. She was nice! We talked about bras!

And Keiffer is a dude who is sometimes a jerk and it sometimes nice. He is usually pretty funny though either way! And he looks really good in suits. And most things. Someone posted that "Dirk Hopeless Rates You as a Poster" thread before; that might explain a little better. They are one in the same. Actually I think that maybe 25% of the people on this forum are actually Keiffer. He has probably achieved myth status here at this point, to be honest.

That thread just makes me sad and makes me miss a lot of people.

Double posting to say that really I just wanted people to read that thread again. Chuck got a "legend" but I got a "love you dearly" from Keiffer AND a "i adore her" from Chuck. This is because I was awesome once.

Also, to be fair I've always considered myself more of an Andy Kaufman than a Hunter S Thompson, but that's just me.

No way. Kaufman was absurdist but ultimately harmless.

HST was a fucking asshole, which a lot of people seem to be ignoring.

If you're unsure as to how much of an asshole HST could be, I humbly recommend you read Ralph Steadman's excellent memoir, The Joke is Over, which aside from being supremely entertaining also contains a lot of Dr. Thompson's correspondences where he is a total and utter cunt for no reason whatsoever.

It's pretty great.

I know HST was a douchebag, one of my good friends parents ran the Woody Creek Tavern in aspen for years, were close personal friends of his, and are full of stories about what a douche he was.

One time he enlarged a picture shot it with a shot gun, and splashed red paint on it, and gave it to them to cover his bar debt.

Or watched Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. I had a customer who called in once who sounded exactly like older Hunter, only more racist.

I typed this but didn't hit reply fast enough to beat Keiffer.

i like kieffer. sometimes he might be unnecessarily mean but really, i almost always agree with the point he's making in his mean posts anyway so i don't really care enough to get upset. it seems to me like maybe now the main reason he gets such harsh responses is just cos people hear he's a dick and so that reputation has stuck with him? as soon as he says anything even remotely harsh it's "man, typical kieffer being a dick again" yet there are people on this forum who i think are or have been much meaner but they get away with it because for some reason they don't have his reputation of being an asshole. being in a constant state of disliking kieffer and expecting him to be a dick no matter what is something we can probably try to move on from.

Fun? Do you remember fun, guys?

Vaguely!  My take on the situation is that the regulars have basically done the obvious fun threads to death already and are kind of stuck at an impasse.  How do we get less serious?  I realise I am at fault here too, I just don't know what to do about it.

You don't go on having fun by doing the same things again and again, that's arrested development; there needs to be change or development of some kind.  As an outsider, my impression is that the inner core of regulars here has become too inward-looking and cliquey, rather a club within a club (the parallel existence of the Gabbly/Meebo group seems at times to be another divisive element in these forums).  Ask yourselves what reasons these groups have to exist other than inertia, and see where that takes you.

I think what he means is that he doesn't really give two shits about forum drama because, well, he's bright enough not to.

He's right about the whole Gabbletron/Meebo thing being a divisive element. I don't talk much (if at all, in some really sad cases) to most of those people because, well, they're content to talk among themselves elsewhere. Which is good for them, I'm not going to stop them, but it is SHIT for this forum. Wonder why all the interesting shit is gone? It's because it all got sucked into another place. The old regulars who would normally be posting cool shit on the boards have all pretty much left to post their cool shit on Meebo and ignore the boards.

Basically, if you guys are serious about making this place interesting again, kill Meebo and stop being anal about people getting chatty in threads. If people want to talk, let them talk. You don't kill a conversation in real life just because the topic changed, what makes the internet so special that you should do it here? If shit gets out of hand and becomes so exclusive that only two people are talking about it, THEN they take it somewhere more private.

How about instead of killing meebo, we just also post here, much like I (and a good few of the other meeblers) do. Its a chat program, but not everyone uses it, so there is still a point to post.

I stopped posting much because I got into a funk. It got none all to do with chat clients. Don't help none that I don't know who anybody is no more. I used to get all you guys, but now there's so many new faces I don't get shit at all. I also chose to start omitting so much detail about my personal life that I've had nothing to talk about. Okay, I'll change. After I've taken a shower.

My mom decided to do my wash for me one week. Not realizing said cardigan was wool, she tossed it in with some t-shirts and it shrank. I had no use for it since it did not fit and now it has a new home.

THIS CARDIGAN IS PINING FOR THE FJORDS, MAN.

My take on the situation is that the regulars have basically done the obvious fun threads to death already and are kind of stuck at an impasse.  How do we get less serious?  I realise I am at fault here too, I just don't know what to do about it.

The group consensus in the other thread before was that we just need to stop harshing on new threads. I don't think the problem is people being out of ideas, it's just that fun threads never get off the ground in today's forum climate. All people do is blog and shout down threads that don't immediately seem pertinent. Certainly, when I think of most of my favorite threads from before, I can't imagine they'd get further than two posts before everyone shouted it down for being stupid.

Remember when jeph used to come on here and literally start threads by posting a picture of a moose and some inane caption? When tania started a thread about how awesome breakfast cereal is? When people started threads to discuss robot dinosaurs they saw in a commercial? It's hard to imagine that kind of tomfoolery ever even happened.

Think of it like brainstorming: the only way to get good ideas is to throw out a ton of ideas and see which ones stick.  Sure a lot will suck, but instead of being judgmental just ignore the crap.

OBLIGATORY ADDITION: The cereal thread was actually pretty blah other than duchess. I'm telling you, all of the forum's problems are because she left.

It is kind of awkwardly shaped right now. I don't know if I will actually wear it.

Also, it is not the fjords I'm pining for.

... I am wondering here, I know that "fjords" are big freakin' valleys filled with steams, so unless you have a small house squirreled into the cliff face I don't think you can have a Boy in the fjord.

Also I just have this image of a boy made entirely out of a Fjord, its kind of weird.

I have actually sat down and gone through all of her posts more than once, and read tons of old threads just because she posted something brilliant in them. She had mostly gone before I really started posting on these forums, but nonetheless I think she was one of my favourite things here.

Regardless of how long someone's been here, it's still not right to dedicate a whole thread to shit on someone. 

Isn't that what Kieffer does pretty much every over time he posts?

Which isn't really a big deal. Just saying.

Oh and no one really cares what your personal opinion about Kieffer is, whether it's good or bad. He's a guy who acts like an ass a lot and is also sometimes humorous. Can we not devote every tenth thread to him?

If shit gets out of hand and becomes so exclusive that only two people are talking about it, THEN they take it somewhere more private.

Also, this. Everything Patrick said.

That is honestly a terrible argument.

Like, really bad.

"Stop talking elsewhere so all of your ideas and communication are forced here."

Ending meebo will just further the disconnect between a lot of people and these forums. The bigger issue is that most of the threads here have just been uninteresting. It is hard to put concerted effort into something you feel yourself slowly drifting from. For those that have been around for years, this can be particularly troublesome. Every other thread feels like the third rehash of something that has occurred previously. Everyone is going to approach this in their own way, whether it be further lack of participation, high levels of sarcastic posts, or attempts to heal the disconnect. You cannot expect more or less.

So lets all stop worrying about what others decide to do towards the future of the forums, and approach it in the way we each see fit ourselves.
