I really don’t understand why people have to throw a hissy fit over the use of the word rape. People seriously take this shit way too far. Oh no, someone used a metaphor for pressing a key a bunch of times. Suddenly, forceful sex is a trivial matter and everyone is suddenly going to do it. At this very moment, rape victims are crying their eyes out because someone used their traumatizing experience in a different meaning. The guy who used the word is spreading RAPE CULTURE and suddenly, everyone will...

As if we already didn’t know, the more things that become popular, the more they’re gonna be exploited, bastardized, and milked for every cent or drop of humor they can possibly squeeze it for. And that’s why memes are dying. It’s a natural chain of progression, where one person tips the scale, sets things in motion, and this shit happens. I don’t know what I hate more about all this. The fact that they’re pretty much telling you that you’ll never need to put any effort into your creations or that...
You’ve brought about the end of the world, KYM. Irony has limits, and when ironic shitposting gets out of hand, it won’t be too long before it’s the accepted, common thing to do. You’re turning yourselves into the very thing you hate, and it won’t be long before it all burns to the ground. May people teach the lesson they learn here to their children before they sleep. If only it weren’t too late to stop it.
Well, this survey pretty much confirmed everything I was afraid of about the pony fanbase. I’m not really sure if I should be scared or laughing.
The problem is though that the stupid people compose 95% of the site.
Are people really making this big of a deal about this? Is this seriously a debate? Are we really discussing what is and isn’t art? The whole art debate is interesting and all, but isn’t this all about improper credit and all that shit? Please tell me without your philosophical and technical bullshit if writing three words on someone else’s artwork is the word-person’s art? At the very least, is it not misleading to the general masses with the terminology, especially for a website dedicated to cataloging...
Man, look at this nerd above me.
Check out this artistic re-imaging of your avatar. I even added a white pixel in the top-right corner, which is totally the same as taking the time to repaint a can of soup rather than taking a picture and publishing it as yours. It’s like I’m really a snooty art student! Yeah, I’m pretty sure we’re not being serious right now. Do the people who have the power to change this shit even look at this forum, let alone care?
You are submitting your pictures for the login system, are you not? Some people did create theirs, but regardless of whether they painted it with their own blood or they took a shitty five-second screenshot, they submitted it. It’s a blanket term that covers all of the images present on the log-in screen and it clears up the ownership issue. Your name is still underneath the image like you’re a special little snowflake; isn’t that good enough? I’m not suggesting we put the original artists and meme...
If we’re going through the trouble of editing the log-in screen, why not just change the words like I proposed? Really, it might just be the word “artwork” being a nitpick, but I believe I’ve stated my reasons for my proposed changes. I like the idea, though. Doing both would be nothing but an improvement. I bet some people some people would forget all about logging in, but that’s what middle clicking is for. Serves them right for not abusing tabs.
which our site actually prevents as we tell what the meme itself is. Yeah, if you particularly search it up yourself. The wording is simply contradictory to the actual articles, and it’s not farfetched to believe that a large portion of the KYM userbase actually thinks that the image and / or meme was created by the person, considering the whole website is dedicated to supplying factual information about memes. Combine that with the userbase that’s gradually shifted to the mainstream and ignorant masses...
Like I said, it’s awfully miscrediting to the original authors for the people who add a couple words and call it their own, especially saying it’s their artwork.
Whenever you log in, I’m seeing a lot of stuff that says “ARTWORK BY SO AND SO.” More than half of these aren’t even done by the person and it’s just a bunch of copy-paste with an occasional word thrown in. For example, Yaranaika is one of the log in images, but right underneath it says “ARTWORK BY DR. PEPPER TRIXIE mr. giant name” or whatever. The particular manga was made by Y. Junichi, and pretty much every other image on the log-in screen wasn’t made by that person. Can we at least change it to...
I don’t care if this is ironic or being silly or any of that stuff. Why, of all topics, does this one have 49 pages?
This is the only post in the topic that could be even remotely considered trolling, and it’s a pretty lackluster attempt. In your guys defense, the sheer stupidity of your posts could be offensive to people who actually know the real definition of trolling, and by extension, you’re trolling us. I really hope that’s the case, because humanity has reached its low point otherwise.
If I may interject your conversation of these supposed “jimmies?” By spamming the same shit over and over, you are effectively rustling the collective jimmies of the intelligent people that may be reading over this. And in addition to this, with the claim of wanting to reduce said rustling, is getting people mad a bad thing? In the barren wastelands of these parts, trolling and upsetting is one of the few weapons we have left. To be kind is a good thing, but to be overtly kind will get nothing but a...
Karma bombing? Is this shit seriously a thing? Sorry I said anything you guys disagree with; I’ll just be downvoted to hell so you guys can’t see anything you don’t like. Maybe if I became president, I could get rid of the karma circlejerks I see everybody going on about. Favorite food is chicken cordon bleu, by the way. Have fun with your inferior foods, plebeians.
Yes, that’s right. In the interest of saving the Internet, I, Anormulus, am running for president. My fellow people! You aren’t really my fellows! In fact, I hate each and every one of you! You are the true scum of the Internet for the most part, and I would take the scum off my shoe when given the choice between it and you all. But that is what I’m going to change. I dare not leave what used to be a site which I only moderately hated to what it has become. A realistic representation of the important...
Fairly new on the forums, but I can safely say at this point that I hate each and every one of you. That’s actually pretty good, because I came into these forums with lower expectations than this.
Goodnight, sweet prince. Tonight we shed a tear for you.
