Oh 12oz, where have you gone?


Recommended Posts

^ See that doesn't happen to me, C_H.

 

I usually need to log in twice; or if I let it sit for a while and refresh I need to login. But I don't have the problem where if I'm actively clicking around I need to stop and sign in again.

Get donations for a code expert

 

Yea, OR just use a portion of the money from all the fucking ads for a "code expert".

 

Don't get me wrong CH, you are basically right, the thing is just that the people who make the decisions

- have other things to do

- don't give a shit

- or both

 

..as this is all fucked since many moons and nothing is beeing done, it's not even really being discussed.

actually things have happened, but it hasn't been enough to fix the thing completely

and it's really only one person making the decisions and paying for all of this.

and yes, that guy has a life to live, and this place isn't so much a part of it anymore

somedays i'm kinda surprised this place is still up and running.

..maybe it would be an idea to sell / give the whole thing to somebody who wants to / is able to take care of it.

 

You know, like with a cat.

 

At the moment it is like "that guy" got himself a cat some years ago, took good care of it,

but now he has changed / life has changed (which is comprehensible; it happens).

 

My point is that

- this neglected cat will die if nothing happens

- how can he not give a shit, it is a really cool cat

but what if it's less like a cat and more like a baby

after all, a lot of effort$ and time went into nurturing it in it's formative years.

that baby grew up ... and into something else

and he's not gonna adopt it out.

 

the priority is on the news feed. which isn't dying anytime soon from the looks of it

 

on top of it, this is all just speculation from us, really. no amount of discussion or complaining in here will change anything

I think most forums are dying. I have participated in a few different unrelated forums, they are all losing interest.

 

After seeing high school kids and what they do, I think they are doing snapchat and shit like that. We are not really getting any new blood in any forums.

Reddit is booming, but size doesn't equate to quality of content. Lots of recycled bullshit and downright stupid shit. But it is a great news aggregator, and in some cases, a source for first hand accounts (as long as you take them with a grain of salt).

 

The NFL related subreddits are pretty cool, there are current and retired players, as well as people involved in the front offices of teams that do AMAs (Ask Me Anything). Fred Smoot actually became a very active member after his AMA, organizing events (tailgates etc) for the Redskins community.

Some subreddits are great, but the major ones (i.e. what shows up on the front page if you're not a registered user or if you don't play around with your settings) are mediocre/recycled/garbage.

 

The general userbase is EXTREMELY sensitive. A lot are lonely nerds; you think a girl posting here gets attention? Wait until you stumble on some attractive girl who wants validation posting pictures on reddit with an Xbox controller on her lap. Channel Zero humor doesn't fly, and if you're posting about a problem, the general consensus is almost always "call the police." But they love talking shit about cops, too. It's odd.

 

There's a sub for almost everything, and I mean everything. Many are quality. Also, despite the weird hivemind, it's pretty diverse in terms of its users. You might have to dig a little bit, but there's a huge membership beyond the aforementioned lonely nerds.

i never liked reddit either

 

i do think forums are going the way of the dodo

social networking took that shit over.

 

the guy staying at my house has heard of oontz but doesn't use it

he couldn't care less about forum clocks or login issues.

i agreed with him too when he said that ten or even five years ago, meeting people off a message board might've been cool but these days, not so much.

..maybe I'm not the "typical user", but for me SR was never about meeting people.

I got interested in stencils and stuff, and learned a lot from people on here.

I enjoyed seeing stuff from all over the world I would never have seen otherwise.

Documentation, also discussion; in a coherent way, were you can see how shit develops.

Like an archive of stuff from people who are tarred by a similar brush.

Also stuff like KIR's thread.

I mean, where the fuck do you find stuff like that.
