Thanks Katie. I’ll pass on your suggestions to the video team. It’ll be a learning experience where we get better and better (hopefully) as we go along.
Added a video to Nyan Cat / Pop Tart Cat.
I’m answering Q’s here:
o hai der. :D
Posted I'm Ben, CEO of Cheezburger. Feel free to ask me questions. in the General forum.
Hey KYMers, it’s Ben from Cheezburger. I’ll answer some questions that came up below.
1) Yes, the ads have been there well before us. We did add the blue Cheezburger bar.
2) The current KYM staff is staying on and we’re very happy to have them join the team.
3) Editorially, we’re not here to ruin something that’s already good. We’re going to stay true to KYM and its community. We realize that KYM’s success is due to its research and community. We want to increase the quality of the entries and give the team more resources.
4) Not everything is funny to everyone. We know that, and that’s why we run dozens of sites. We think of each of them as playgrounds for all different types.
Ask away and I’ll try to get to as many as I can.
Thanks Jostin. That’s one of my favorite lolcats you posted. :)
Thx for the wall post. We hope to do well for the community here. :)
Thank you. We’ll do our bestest!
well, hello thar. :)
Thank you. I hope we can do that.
@brzap – OH, you mean the Cheezburger bar… yeah, we’ll see if we can make that better.
@Hamilton Turtle – I totally agree it’s not broken. :) But the team could use more resources. For eg: servers, more time for writing, etc.
@brzap – The ads have stayed the same. That top ad has been there before us… I do gotta pay peeps. :) We’ll try to make the ads less intrusive if we can. We’ve gone a along ways on that on the rest of Cheezburger. We can always do more. Also, no need for lolspeak here.
@featurecreature Sorry to hear that. :( I’m not really sure why you feel that way. But I really believe in the mainstreaming of Internet Culture and people using memes to make each other happy sure beats the heck of a few TV channels controlling what’s considered funny.
Looks like the comment thread was locked for a bit by the admins. I have asked them to reopen it. I’m more than happy to let you guys ask questions and for me to answer in the open. I <3 KYM :)
Hey guys, it’s Ben from Cheezburger. I know actions speak louder than words, but we love KYM because of what it is today thanks to the community and the editors. We want to keep doing what KYM does best and provide more resources to the staff and site.
