The forum is 5 years old! Damn I made this forum just after I turned 17. Looking at some of my past posts...pretty sure I didn't know how to spell you're correctly
Here is a picture of me in a sweater looking like a professor


I'd like to thank each and every member for helping me waste time on this website.
I haven't spent a dime on it, but the amount of effort I put into advertising is through the roof. 90% of it unsuccessful. (Well this place was pretty happening like 3 years ago not going to lie, but we had this big staff problem and members would only side with a certain poster and I was forced to ban like two of them and then they messaged people individually here to join there own spinoff forum but that's a whole other thing)

Thank you to all the members that have been here for years. The ones who have seen this place prosper, then the recession, then the small identity that it has today. The casual posters that keep the place going.

Thank you to the new members who gave the place a chance, and enjoy frequenting the place on a regular basis.

I still think I'd like to send people a care package for recruiting new members. Something funny. Something charming. I'll just put a few BYD things into a box and send it over. Have a little incentive to get your buddies to post. Word of mouth is so much stronger than me spamming around the web. And I'll have fun doing it too. It'd be nice to send you guys some gifts.

As of late a few of you guys have done a very good job in recruiting. (Haha, remember when I brought a bunch of little ad cards to a party? None of it worked but it was funny and sky was there)
Tax- Gwonam
Gulper- Gene
Me - Layde

I think if anyone is interesting in putting in some overtime work into the forum I'd be happy to start staffing people. VC/Link/Brute are all out. If you guys didn't know. There is a staff forum where we used to talk about issues and shit. And we pretty much post there never because...well what is there to talk about. The place got pretty active when we were working on the layout, lets get some excitement flowing again. I had replaced them with Taxer and Dies. But Dies Died.

Excitement.movi

I'm thinking of more changes. Remove the story section perhaps, as well as the headlines, I think people can post news either here or the Earnest area for more traffic here. Don't like watering down places. Reviews are cool, I think we should keep that. Its quirky. Its specific. If we have a common interest in another specific area I think we should add it. Like for example, maybe a thread for just noteworthy moments in an area of music/games/movies. No idea just spitballin'

In hindsight, I believe reviews can encompass everything like the foreword indicates, and when I saw it I immediately believed it to be a good idea. It lets people essentially fanboy or discourage in the most objective way. The story section seems like it has ups and downs; some topics are outright freaky, while others are something I expect to see scrawled on a high school locker. Headlines was actually something I got pretty heated about, in that there's always shit I don't like going on and finding a way to deconstruct it reasonably with like-minded individuals.

On the topic of noteworthy moments in media, I think that can fall within the parameters of the review forum. It doesn't have to be as expansive as a review than it does about a particular moment in a movie, game, album or what have you. I think it's designed currently to allow both of those to take place, so why the hell not?

I think I'll show a couple friends of mine the forum because it's actually a pretty decent place to talk about a variety of subjects. I never liked sites like Askmen and I got too old for IGN where everyone's 14 years old watching old YTMNDs, shouting obscenities at each other and taunting bans. This is a very impressive alternative. I wasn't here for the heyday of the forum, but if the cultivation of members currently existing shows for anything, it's that the bond between those who remain is strong and that's enough to make me recommend it.

Happy 5th, Tip of the Hat.

I like the idea of adding more content into the Review area to highlight specific moments as well

I think we could change the title of it to include that aspect as well- what do you think? Reviews and Classics? Synopsis and the Golden Moments? No idea

I think the stories can probably get moved. The rest are probably fine

That'd be much appreciated, happy tipping

forum is already 5? i feel old. Very Happy

anyway Congrats!

i dont think we should remove headlines (but thats just a bias thing for me because thats where I post the most haha) stories can probably be moved I agree. I found out with that topic, I usually don't have the time to read all of the long stories, then say i'll come back to it, then i never do, but im sure some people would still like the idea to stay in another form.

I remember that whale of a TV. Got rid of it. Pretty bad. I couldn't read text when I was playing Skyrim it was so blurry.
