Title: Worstlympics 2010?
Post by: Shinra on September 21, 2010, 10:41:57 PM
I was disappointed to see nobody try to start up the worst olympics this year. Anybody else up for some forum competition?

At the state the community is in, I'm pretty sure this would be, at best, a sad showing. Just have Lyrai do 'name that tune' every 6 months and no one would such an even.

I agree. We'd need an influx of new, porn-seeking members before we could attempt something like this.

I don't think we want porn-seeking users. They'd all be after creepy underaged Toph porn.

I'd participate and maybe help host some stuff or organize a tiny bit but I'm very reluctant to submit myself to ungrateful nerds being belligerently stupid about how apathetic they are, which is why I let August drift silently by in the first place.

Though I did reread the Feedback Thread and more of you are gentlemen then I remembered.

I am a little embarrassed to see a lack of thankyous from me in that thread. I could have sworn I sent some over aim, but I will say thankyou here, now, just in case!

Tell you what. Since you're the self-proclaimed expert, we'll let you find it.

8406 posts. Get crackin'.

Man I'm totally willing to kick you in the balls why are you so ungrateful about my willingness. My willingness to kick you. In the balls. I do not understand!!!

Look man, I don't want to hate on your willingness to help the community, but I think the first hint here is that if people are ungrateful, it's probably not all that fun. Not even through any fault of your own. "Belligerently Apathetic" implies many of us don't want to do this for the sake of apathy and that we'd all have a GRRRRRR8 time if we just gave in. I might be speaking only for my self, but I suspect not. I think the time for this stuff has passed.

When this started, some of us were in highschool, some of us were in college. We'd have the summer off and would be too broke to buy video games we wanted, may not have had a car to do much and fuck, were just youthful in general. Hey! A crazy event to pass the boredom of the summer before classes start again! Hooray!

We're old now. Many of us have careers. Some of us are married. Some of us are still kinda bummin' it, but have it down to such an art that we are no longer strapped for an activity of some sort. Also we're older, so sitting around, drawing flags made out of dicks for the nth time isn't QUITE as appealing anymore.

And what of the events? Theres always Image-Fu, but you guys were just doing that. Theres games but... oh well, we already play games -- often not even as a group anymore. I don't think any game outside of TF2 has the membership to support a contest. LoL could get like 2 teams of players, Starcraft 2 has like 4 dudes playing it. Werewolf is popular but played ALL THE TIME. Theres a bunch of dudes playing SSF4 but the skill level is just all over the place and its pretty much a freebie for me, Envy being absurdly lucky aside (and also Patito, who is super boss, can't play online which is such a huge shame I couldn't stomach playing without him). Some sort of Minecraft vanity contest could possibly work I suppose. So this leaves us with some stupid goofy shit and Lyrai's name a tune. Oh and TF2, but McDohl tried to start that up again with failure. Besides, we don't need it. Polypack will come out, we'll all have a little 3-4 day event out of it and things will die again.

The whole role of the event is lost and theres little of interest left about it. The novelty is gone. I don't think most people care at all. I mean damn, no ones even around to vote. If you wanna do something, run something. Thats it. We don't need an *lymics to do Knytt Story stuff. Or to play games on the weekend. Or anything. Anything else is a big waste of hoopla that doesn't really impress anyone much anymore. I don't think 'apathy' has anything to do with it. We can all go out and have lives now (or stay in and afford to do whatever hobby we're into), it's boring by comparison.

Look.

This is an excuse to organize some activities that otherwise probably wouldn't get organized.

It doesn't have to be that involved.

I mean fuck I just facerolled into the Chairman position this year and I'm the guy who's always complaining about being the busiest here, postcount notwithstanding.

I think Doom might have taken things a bit too much to heart last year, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun anymore.

Now Spammers, that's why we can't have fun anymore...

I'm hoping there's a text adventure contest, so I can try and fail to learn Inform again.

I would be up for a text adventure contest if someone hosted the thing (JDigitial you should host the text adventure contest)

Honestly, if doom does not want to organize this this year, I'd be willing to. I'm jobless at the moment and 99% of the work seems to be the organization/planning phase, though I've never organized a forum event before so what the fuck do I know?

It looks like Brentai has got it (http://brontoforum.us/index.php?topic=5538.0).  In fact, this thread is pointless now so just post in that one and this one will be locked.
