LET'S CIRCLE-JERK: Things You Love About KYM General

Imalready started a negative thread I have decided that it is appropriate to start a positive thread to balance things out.

I like the forums. They’re so well-designed. I actually think the forums are better programmed and designed than the core of the website itself: the articles and stuff.

The community is awesome. Everyone has the best sense of humor. The main reason I became a regular at this site was because of how much I laughed at the comments. I also wanted to make awesome comments (and force my opinions into stuff, obviously). The mods are pretty cool guys as well. On most sites, mods are freakin’ scary and strict. Here, they’re just regular users with extra powers. (No Bob, I’m not kissing your ass, this is my honest opinion) There’s also a big sense of unity among the users. I’m only kind of miffed that there aren’t more female users. KYM is basically a sausage-fest. I only really know Crimson Locks

I would say a lot more, but I’ll let you guys talk for me.

Why is that a positive? It’s not a negative obviously, but why does that matter?

Also, based on most of the posts I see, the majority is straight.

By the way, who first made that badge? It’s pretty cool and I see it on plenty of profiles.

We actually do have a lot of LGBT around here.

It might have been opspe. We once had this trend around KYM where we made badges for the things we were into. Some examples:


I like the community. Sure its full of morons sometimes but there’s also some decent people that I like to call friends

What about morons you can call friends?


Personally… I like people I can relate to on here, as well as those I can discuss and/or argue about on serious business.

It was indeed opspe.

There’s a nice, general trust among most of the people on the site. Those that are being dicks are usually readily apparent and easy to ignore.

The images are very worthwhile to spend time on. Most of the images are tumblr related, which makes lots of opportunities to make funny jokes and quick laughs, as well as snooty remarks about things it hates.

I find myself wasting losing half an hour to the trending images.

A lot of entries are easy to read, easy to understand with this clean community. There isn’t much of conflicts and trolls around, which might be a bit of a downer, this site is mostly robotic, it isn’t a bad thing, but besides the forums, there isn’t very much emotion. The forums is a large cesspool of emotion.
Nothing about JFF I’ve said many times before but it pretty bland for a ‘for fun’ subforum. Needs more games and less undead mess (Ban the user above you).

This site somehow draws me back in, maybe because of the images, it’s really fun to go there.

I love the peacefulness, I love the hugbox-ness. It really stands out, contrasted with the rest of the Internet. I feel like we’re much more accepting/welcoming of all the weird and unusual of the Web that gets a lot of ridicule or hate elsewhere, especially after shutting down “Cringeworthy”. Furry? It’s whatevs. You got a tulpa? Intriguing, tell us more. That one fetish? If it floatz, you ship it boatz.

The moderatorship is amazing. They never let power go to their head, do not aspire to it, and really feel like “one of the people”. 10/10 would follow willingly.

I absolutely love the For Science! attitude of the community.

There was a dubstep club? I’m supper jelly. Why wasn’t I invited? Am I…

Too indie for you?

I like that we can now tag and source other people’s images, it makes it infinity easier to find things (of course, if uploaders would do that more to begin with, this wouldn’t be a issue at all). I glad that deadpooled entries are not locked from uploads (unless other circumstances require it) so that if more examples are found, they can still be documented.

The community seems pretty good. Sure, there’s a few people who go out of their way to post “I don’t like X” on pages dedicated to “X”, but most of them cool their jets after a while. Most of the users are pretty excepting of others no matter what things they like (provided they don’t try spreading these things everywhere). There are probably a bunch of other things that I like that I take for granted.

This right here. I had left several forums before because their communities were incredibly harsh to anyone who dared disliked something they didn’t like. KYM doesn’t follow that.

Well, except for maybe 9gag…

I don’t care what anyone says, KYM is something I will defend until my dying breath.

Every single day I get somebody saying how much KYM sucks (usually former members), and every single day I react the same way: smile and roll my eyes.

I absolutely love this community, and will quite possibly never stop loving it, as long as it never stops loving me.

Well if you want my opinion, Know Your Meme is a better place than Facebook and Twitter together, I’ll give that.
Also the lack of trolls here.

The forums is still a small enough community where there isn’t multiple sub-communities that divide up the website. That’s what I like about it, it’s still all one forum. Not a giant clump of forums. And it’s why I haven’t found another forum I particularly liked yet.

DNB club actually, but I included Dubstep into it. Only me, opspe and Algernon took part in it I think since we were the only real DNB fans around here. The rest of you guys weren’t underground enough. It didn’t really take off.

I don’t think you were around at the time


@elma

Know Your Meme is a better place than Facebook and Twitter together

I concur. This place is far more social than Facebook.

On Facebook everyone just talks about themselves. Here we have actual discussions

A square.

@elmashojaldra
Yes! The lack of trolls is good, only we got spambots to take their place. XD

No I mean like you weren’t around the small corner of KYM where that was taking place. Of course you were around generally at that time.

Facebook is full of attention whores. Twitter is just plain stupid.

My favorite thing is reading all the funny comments, laughing at all the pictures, and talking about common interests with other users.

You missed the “Golden Age of Trolls” by about a year.

KYM is for me a wonderful paradise. The discussions about every kind of topic are entertaining, but most importantly, thoughtful.

I like the fandom community, the JFF threads, the amount of sports fans on here, the mods and admins, the fact that the KYM commenters and the FB commenters can usually agree on the entries, and how users can give back to others.

I love how KYM is a fun, crazy, yet peaceful side of the internet.
Plenty of good forum discussions
Lots of information on the latest memes and internet cultures.
Great community

And the best part, no cancerous forced memes being posted by visitors of 9Gag on my page. (i’m looking at you, Facebook)

I like how I can contribute to this site by adding to the image and video galleries, especially the entries that are really lacking them. It’s not much but it feels a bit nice knowing I can contribute (i.e. not be completely worthless.)

> The joyous, friendly community that is varied, clever, humorous, and doesn’t require a flawless record with the outside world to fit in with.
> The fact that everything you do can potentially help and assist with the advancement of the site as a whole.
> The wonderful, satisfactory felling of accomplishment as you receive various accolades, such as top comment, an influx of karma, or a shiny new title.
> The fact that users are not just a pic and a name, but an entire persona encapsulated within everything they do, from usernames referencing pop culture, to unique methods of commenting and posting. Often, you’ll learn tons more stuff about one person from their comment than on any other site.
> The fact that KYM fells more like social networking than any other I’ve seen. It’s large, yet tightly knit. diverse, yet constant enough that newbies can learn the ropes without much fuss.

. . .

The list could go on and on, but then I’ll start to go off-topic. In short, I love this site, I love you guys, and I hope for nothing but the best for the future!
