Title: The Worst
Post by: Lady Duke on February 11, 2009, 03:59:44 PM
I think Worst Forums Ever is a terrible name for a forum and I think that Worsties is a wholly embarrassing term for the people who dwell on said forum.  I like this forum, but really, I can't see why this seemed like a good name to anyone but prolly whoever came up with the name.

You could rename it something better.  That implied that it wasn't the worst podcast.

This is true. When people ask me where I get my movie recommendations and awesome YouTube clips from, I say "Internet." When they ask where, I say "Internet."

This irritates people, for some reason.

I usually just call you all "my kids," which leads to adorable misunderstandings whenever one of you happens to accomplish something worth writing about and somebody else believes that it was done by one of my actual, nonexistent children.

But yes, there needs to be an active website attached to this thing before too long. No, I'm not going to be the one to do that this time. I've got other things going on, and I'm not Parish enough to maintain something else on the side. Maybe if I suffer some kind of incredible personal tragedy that drives me to live alone in the woods again for a few years. Which happens with enough regularity that it should not be taken as an invitation for Kazz or whoever to fly out here and kill my girlfriend. Seriously, don't fucking do that.

And I'm fine with Wurst, if only because it implies that you don't do much besides a lot of shoving of meat into intestines. Fags.

We've had slightly more fresh meat recently than in most of this communo-whatever's history, so I don't think there's much need to push it.  We're all oddballs even among the geek crowd, so it's best to let people mesh in quietly by whatever weird method it happens.

I mean I'd personally like to talk to some other people once in a while too but I've got a very good solution to that: I talk to people somewhere else.
Title: Re: The Worst
Post by: Sharkey on February 12, 2009, 05:33:50 PM
Well, the damn thing of it is that a flood of newbs, no matter how painful, tends to bring stimulation and longer lasting regulars. Mostly because they're a painful presence in the first damn place. Ideally, you kick the shit out of them and the better ones persist.

I haven't forgotten the first few minutes of finalfight. I kickbanned everyone who showed up, and of the ones who showed up again afterward, well, I slept with two thirds, and the rest want to kill me. On the whole I think that constitutes a wildly successful venture.

If Brent had a vagina it would have been a perfect score. Penis having motherfucker.

Title: Re: The Worst
Post by: Kazz on February 12, 2009, 06:47:57 PM
I think the content-producers among us are already hard at work, while the rest of us will struggle if forced.  We don't need much more than a front page that says "Here's what the members of this forum are responsible for," along with a list of impressive works.  Simply writing articles and blathering into microphones like every other website won't get any attention; at least, none that I would want to attract.

Primarily, I don't want an internet stranger to approach me and go "Oh, you're with them?  That place SUCKS," especially if I didn't do anything, sucky or otherwise.  And as an ambassador of the community, it's bad form to go "Yeah, I know, we do suck."

Who among us is qualified to objectively determine a project's quality, though?

We, the collective, don't.  Some of us do, and a place where all of our works are showcased together is likely to bring each of them much-desired attention.

If you have no such works, you're free to ignore whatever is set up.  It's foolish to pressure anybody into creating something; not even the creator will like the result.
