KYM has changed

KYM has changed.
It’s no longer about memes or internet culture.
It’s not even about research or a community working together.

It’s now an endless series of ponies, karma whores and people wanting to be oldfags.

KYM has changed.

Okay, done with the nostalgia, let’s get back to work.

I know, mate. The first time I came here, I was naive and stupid, like everybody. Then I noticed the forums. It was full of fun people, forum games, Internet Cultures, etc.. I tried my best to keep up. To be an Intelligent and Helpful user. those bright days are now a dim light-bulb. I hope someone do something about it. R.I.P. Old KYM.

Yes, I know.

Despite me being only half a year old on this site, I can see that looking in a retrospect.

Am…am I a problem? I don’t like being part of the issue…please tell me I’m not responsible for this…tell me everything’s going to be okay…

Change is inevitable. We can’t stop change, we can only embrace it and hope for the best. No use dwelling on the past and no amount of complaining will change it back to the way it was.

Wow, I’ve been here for a year. I remember a year ago, the forum games were more fun, and we all changed profile pictures and names every day for like a week to fit a theme. Ponies were also all over the place, as there were no dedicated pony boards. I remember the “images” section not having nearly as many features as it does now, and they had to implement these, along with a filter in the “trending images” section on the first page, because of the flood of pony related content.

Anyone saying KYM’s gotten worse is either getting bored of the site or butthurt over their favorite users leaving. Make some new friends. Some of these new users were better friends than my old friends. Plus the pony spam, the Touhou/TF2 spam was pretty much the same. The karma whore thing has always been around, it was a cancer from the start.

Man, im so sick of older users/fans of something complaining about how what they love has changed into something new, whether they are just ignorant or they actually have a point or not.
If you truly love something, you will love it no matter how much it changes, whether it gets better or worse

What I miss the most when memes where used by people from the internet.one thing that will piss me off is
“Is that one of those Facebook meme things?”

ponies

In the last four months, I think I have seen about two or three pony images in threads outside of Pony General. It is not at all overrun with ponies. And this is from the guy who was foaming at the mouth about how bad it was a year ago.

karma whores

That’s entirely discouraged and usually threads like that get locked or derailed. Even Suiseiseki isn’t doing that anymore.

and people wanting to be oldfags.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but most of the people here are against the seemingly entitled mindset that some old users have. So, no. No one wants to be one that bad.

KYM. KYM never changes. Since the dawn of human kind, when our ancestors first discovered the internet, blood has been spilled in the name of everything: from God to justice to simple, psychotic rage. In the year 2077, after millennia of internet conflict, the destructive nature of man could sustain itself no longer. The world was plunged into an abyss of nuclear fire and radiation. But it was not, as some had predicted, the end of the world. Instead, the apocalypse was simply the prologue to another bloody chapter of human history. For man had succeeded in destroying the world – but KYM, KYM never changes. In the early days, thousands were spared the horrors of the holocaust by taking refuge in enormous underground shelters, known as KYM. But when they emerged, they had only the hell of the wastes to greet them – all except those on KYM. For on that fateful day, when fire rained from the sky, the giant steel door of KYM slid closed… and never reopened. It was here you were born. It is here you will die. Because, on KYM: no one ever enters, and no one ever leaves.

I know I’m only 7 months old on this site, but hear me out.

In my perspective, I still hold a pretty good opinion about KYM. I enjoy and respect just about all of the users, and the forums still keep me entertained. I could never delete my account at this point in time, I’ve grown fond of you guys. You’re like a bunch of friends to me already that I like having conversations with and watching you converse amongst yourselves. You guys still entertain me and I can only hope that that continues.

All in all, I stay because of you guys. You guys make it so worth it.

War

War never changes

It’s been on a year since their first attack

We thought they were powerless, we were wrong

When they hit, they hit us hard

We tried to fight back but it was too late

Over time their numbers grew, exponentially, fuelled by some unknown force

They, were unstoppable

“Ummm, Tomberry?”

“Are you playing with dolls?”

“No RandomMan”

“I’m researching with them”

“Kiss!”

Ok, I’d say that 3 significant things have changed since the beginning.

1: We now only have 3 ancientfags. (Tomberry, Ann Hiro, and myself)
2: Forums are now about MLP rather than Touhou
3: Krama Whorign

No problem. Would rather see you using the smiley one, but I guess that would collide with your title.
