growing up on 12oz

Recommended Posts

Guest Ginger Bread Man

this is not another bi-monthly "12oz isn't what it used to be thread" but i'm going to take it back.

 

 

i was reading the Krie thread and started thinking how there are a few people on the site i can think of who grew up on 12oz.

 

i can add suds, nuke, tease to this list however there are some of us which will reach our bedside and still navigate the oontz.

 

its a wild sensation to have; e friends around the world although some we will never meet.

 

i remember back in the pre DAO, COS and about 99% of the current active users, shit was different. 12oz wasn't about shameless self promo, e beef, kanye west tpwf style users. it was really a new way to network, to build and share tecniques as well as terminology from around the globe. these were awesome times.

 

i wonder how many of the older users <circa 1999> will have an RIP thread? this is to say how many of them will the 12oz know have passed?

 

many were active writers but perhaps life has taken them in a different direction and are no long in the active oontz list, others simply got fed up with the countless ridiculous unthread worthy news which has been recycled via my yahoo mailbox, cnn, fox news and every other TPWF news source.

 

im not really sure what this thread is about. <end rant>

I can relate to what you are trying to say Gingerbread Man, but I think alot of what 12oz has become lately is just another Chan really (but a much cooler one at that). I think that with alot of members on here being no facebook and Myspace and things like that, I am sure that if someone died that it would reach back to this board, as I am sure that people who live close to people on their lists on there would make it apparent that someone died.

 

And as for terminology, I think that it is still happening alot on here. I think I now know the meaning of "wit wiz" and "jawn" and "TPWF" which I would not have known if it wasn't for CH 0. One thing however is that I dont think that some of the kids on here these days really show other members on here a personality that isn't cut straight from the stereotypical 'internet troll dickhead' persona (ala COS). The other things that unite people are still in some parts of the forum, like the Drawball thing and the JTV threads but they are not as prolific as say the everyday crazy news storys that come up.

I might get back into bmx based on the strength of that photograph alone.

 

I hear ya GBM but can not put my thoughts on the matter into words in any real way.

But how many of the older cats on here just automatically shit on new jacks, just because they're new?

 

At least for me only being on here since 2006, I've got quite a bit out of the site so it's all gravy for me.. I can see how this board would've been super dope back then, but it was also smaller and more manageable as well. Seems like a lot of people don't even try to make anything good happen.. So it goes..

 

What up GBM..

 

IRC was good for a minute..

I don't think it is really the older cats that shit on newbs so much as it is the semi established members that jump on that right away. The members that have been around for a while but still have that internet as a second life type vibe.

Morton hit it on the head.

 

It's not us old guys that do it.

 

The mid-range on here have developed the hazing ritual on here.

 

Have I joined in before? ...maybe.

 

But look at those who made it through.

 

T4M for example.

 

 

If you need me, I'll be resting my old bones in my extreme hammock over there.

I will say that sometimes the ounce can be pretty fucking cool. I made a thread about some serious shit regarding my custody trial and I got offers of free legal support from three different members and gestures of emotional support from others that in a odd way were really helpful.

 

The jumping in with a funny picture or a so wrong it is funny remark is what kills it sometimes but I think that has to do with the nature of the interwebs as it is right now. Perhaps there will be some evolution as time goes by.

This is the truth though. I guess having been on here a similar amount of time as IOU I have only the more recent history to go off of, whereas you (GBM) have been on here over a decade and are making this observation, and were there to see tease sudz etc grow up and whatnot.

 

In regards to the 'newbie hazing' that goes on, it happens a fair bit, but then you see members who break the mould and post funny shit right off the bat and sometimes they stay and sometimes they don't.

I missed out on the early years, but Channel Zero was slow and boring as fuck when I first started fucking with 12oz back in 03.

I'll never understand how people actually miss the "good ole days" of Channel Zero.

"The good ole days" on here were nice because all the humor was original and by us. Not just regurgitated memes from other sites.

joined about 2004-05

 

on my fourth or fifth scrname

 

i remember when i was suavefella

 

i would type in capslock, thinkin i was unique and would get shit for it.

 

if it wasnt for teh oontz

 

i wouldnt know about the following

 

- 'teh', 'wonk saggin', 'meh', 'pwned', /yesornoanything; /nh and many other things.

 

this site has brought people into my life that may be a half an hr away

 

or across the pond. but the point is like gbm said,

 

we have connections that circumnavigate the globe

 

and if it wasnt from this site, it would be from another.

 

but we chose this site to connect with those people.

 

this site has changed alot, not just in format

 

but now we have cats like dao, cos, boohead, spitfire

 

whose single goal imo is to disrupt the flow of things

 

but we stil embrace them(nh) like

 

that one cousin we see at holiday functions

 

you know the one whos slighty has teh downs

 

and shits himself when xmas presents are being opened
