*crickets*
 
Jeez...it's awfully quiet around here. :\

Tadao Mar 25th, 2014 12:02 AM

It's a one horse town with a one trick pony.

Aaarg Mar 25th, 2014 10:12 AM

and the pony is dead

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 25th, 2014 12:28 PM

and buried, apparently.

Aaarg Mar 26th, 2014 09:48 AM

that shits fossilized kid

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 26th, 2014 01:29 PM

:( I've missed this place, and now it's dead.... were did everyone go? Max...Chimp...Chojin...that idiot that typed "Boop Beep" all of the goddamned time?

Should I go start a vulgar thread in the Loveline for old times sake? Maybe Terra will see and come back...

*sigh*

Tadao Mar 26th, 2014 01:49 PM

Chimp still posts but usually it's in the hockey thread. The only thread that gets posted in. :lol

Kitsa Mar 26th, 2014 03:04 PM

I have my reasons.

Zomboid Mar 27th, 2014 04:11 AM

A few of my favorite people from here haven't even looked at these forums in years, nevermind actually posting. It's pretty weird, considering how ridiculously active it used to be here.

Sacks Mar 27th, 2014 12:26 PM

Once they put up the wall to sequester the new users everything just went stagnant.

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 27th, 2014 01:44 PM

well...that just sucks. New user abuse was the most fun you could have on this board. Is there ever more than just one registered user on this board at a time?

Tadao Mar 27th, 2014 05:41 PM

SOMETIMES 2!

Tadao Mar 27th, 2014 05:56 PM

Even the articles up dates barely have posts in them. The article people only show up for Helloween and Christamasacre. :/

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 27th, 2014 06:31 PM

This makes me sad. Not sad enough to actually do anything about it, but sad nonetheless.

Tadao Mar 27th, 2014 06:46 PM

If articles were added to what I've been calling the back forums (here) I think more new users would participate in our dickery. I can see how having a front forum is more freindly, but it's so full of wapanese and bronies that I hate going there.

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 27th, 2014 07:05 PM

who are the moderators now?

Tadao Mar 27th, 2014 07:18 PM

People who never show up anymore. They took my mod power from me. Fucking jerks. Like they thought I wouldn't abuse it. :rolleyes

MLE Mar 27th, 2014 07:20 PM

Technically, I'm still a mod. Just signed a lease for a new apartment and move in 2 weeks. Things are hectic, but good.

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 27th, 2014 07:36 PM

Hey! Long time no see! I"m glad things are going well!

Fathom Zero Mar 28th, 2014 12:44 AM

I died.

Zomboid Mar 28th, 2014 02:47 AM

Well, that wouldn't be all that surprising. You're like 100 pounds.

Cosmo Electrolux Mar 28th, 2014 11:57 AM

100 pounds of what?

and...how did you die?

AChimp Mar 28th, 2014 01:11 PM

GWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

i was too cool for this world


Cosmo Electrolux Mar 30th, 2014 11:51 AM

so, you're saying that internet access is available in the afterlife? This. Changes. Everything.

Babs Mar 30th, 2014 05:16 PM

death is internet

King Hadas Mar 30th, 2014 05:21 PM

We've all died and gone to Valhalla! Glorious battle is waged endlessly! Although it's mostly done though the computer.

By the way you guys suck #PraiseOdin

liquidstatik Mar 30th, 2014 06:10 PM

i added the good users on facebook and talk to them there instead so i can avoid the rest of you

Nick Mar 31st, 2014 10:16 PM

why is Valhalla so sticky

Sacks Apr 1st, 2014 01:37 AM

Embrace it.

I basically did the same.

AChimp Apr 1st, 2014 02:22 PM

I don't know who half of you are on Facebook, but a bunch of you are on mine.

Tadao Apr 1st, 2014 03:56 PM

yeah, I have like 6 or more, had to drop one because his little black ass only posted anti republican pro obama crap 5 times a day. :/

AChimp Apr 1st, 2014 06:54 PM

I only remember like 5 people's real names. :(

Kitsa Apr 2nd, 2014 08:15 PM

I also added the decent ones.

Tadao Apr 3rd, 2014 04:53 PM

I never followed I-Mock on FB for fear of the weird anime fan club trying to friend for for no other reason than me friending I-Mock.

caffman Apr 11th, 2014 08:48 AM

I remember when here was a beautiful garden in a forest of boredom

Sacks Apr 11th, 2014 09:06 PM

Way to bring us all down, Caffman.

Tadao Apr 11th, 2014 11:50 PM

Man, and people were just starting to come back and check in. All ruined now, thanks a lot dude.

Colonel Flagg Apr 12th, 2014 08:19 PM

I just took a trip down memory lane, reading pages and pages of commentary on a certain person's "lifestyle" who happens to live near Portland, Oregon, and fancies himself a stop-motion animation expert. Those were the days, my friends.

Aaarg Apr 18th, 2014 09:53 PM

Are you talking about serial arsonist, Don Carlson?

Colonel Flagg Apr 20th, 2014 08:22 PM

Yeah, the one who hates Mexicans.

Aaarg Apr 23rd, 2014 09:59 AM

You have to keep in mind that in the words of Portland animator Don Carlson (also known as Pram Maven in Internet white supremacist circles), "Mexican" refers to any person of non-European or African descent.

HickMan Apr 30th, 2014 02:38 AM

You also have to look at the development and popularity of websites like Reddit as a cause for all this. I don't really find too many active forums around anymore. Especially not one like we had here some years back. It was a good time to be on the webzones.

It's funny, I felt a little nostalgic and decided to check the forums out for old times sake. I have done this in the past here and there. But when I found this thread I immediately felt a little bummed out :(

HickMan Apr 30th, 2014 02:43 AM

Maybe this would be a good place to reminisce. We should post all of our favorite memories on the forums!

I really enjoyed the Mock Wars and what became of them. Users would get pitted against one another in a bashing contest to see who had more wit and the thicker skin. Things definitely got a little ugly in my house with Immortal Goat. He always took Chojin's insults and OAO's political debates so serioiusly.

Colonel Flagg Apr 30th, 2014 09:34 AM

I enjoyed the back-and-forth (more back than forth) on the fluoride "debate" with the chillmeister - remember don't say the name, or you may invoke the evil spirit. :eek

Though his "arguments" were to cite articles that were years old (and mostly irrelevant) and punctuated by the ever-popular "Wha-BAM" level of commentary, it was quite instructive to me on how to be patient in discussing topical science with a stone-cold moron. And occasionally, he would be unknowingly hypocritical in his pronouncements which I found hysterical.

I also liked reading George's stories, until he stopped posting them. I hope his ex didn't kill him off. :(

Aaarg Apr 30th, 2014 10:22 AM

YOU MISSED TH PAGE BARAK

Tadao Apr 30th, 2014 01:03 PM

George killed his ex and fled to Argentina. :(

This was undoubtedly the good ending of which we were deprived.

HickMan May 1st, 2014 03:57 AM

Haven't page bark'd in quite a while. Normally I'd leave that for the chat thread. Also known as 'where the cool kids sat'.

HickMan May 1st, 2014 03:58 AM

And I'm still not sure if I'll vote for Rudy Giuliani in 2008.

Aaarg May 1st, 2014 07:29 PM

there are no cool kids
there is no sitting

WhiteRat May 9th, 2014 02:51 PM

Thanks for the thread, guys. I just came really hard.

Esuohlim May 11th, 2014 01:31 PM

Summer of '11 was the last time I-Mockery felt like I-Mockery to me. I remember it well because I was going through major life transition. During that time there was the Pram Maven debacle, the short-lived pickle/zug system, a bunch of people were playing chess with each other online, hanging out in chatrooms watching Bruce Lee movies.

I can't remember anything too significant in the last three years or so.

Willie sending Christmas cookies, sodium fluoride "debates", chat room thread madlibs, chat room thread teeming with activity at 3am, mock wars, people posting as characters, fightin' with Zomboid.

I get bummed out too, guys :(

Colonel Flagg May 12th, 2014 11:13 AM

Some of us still play chess. :(

Tadao May 18th, 2014 05:28 PM

This thread should be sticky'd until the cows come home.

Babs May 18th, 2014 09:24 PM

Bring back the party days.

AChimp May 21st, 2014 11:46 PM

It says a lot about the quality of this forum when the lard that was holding it together is an obese manchild with disgusting facial hair.

Babs May 29th, 2014 09:21 PM

I miss the endless entertainment. Such as Dizzymisslizzy or some other like that. Bill's soul mate. I can't even think about it anymore with out tearing up. I miss this place :tear

replicant Jun 11th, 2014 10:22 AM

I came too late to the boards to be able to wax nostalgic but having been on boards and watching them slowly wither...yep...I been through it. I joined here because I am friends with Protoclown and through him I met and am friends with The Great Picklemeister. I post when the mood strikes but mostly, I like doing Secret Santa.

MarioRPG Jun 16th, 2014 10:43 AM

I miss when we'd get people who communicated in broken English, but still wanted to be considered "internet tough".

Cosmo Electrolux Jun 18th, 2014 12:50 PM

noob bashing....

Esuohlim Jun 18th, 2014 09:21 PM

It was always funny when someone thought kellychaos was a woman and enjoyed all his terrible posts

rip

I-Mock used to be my go to default internet pages for years.

Supafly345 Jun 28th, 2014 12:36 AM

I got an email from the forums and that reminded me to come by and say hi!

Tadao Jun 30th, 2014 04:44 PM

I found a forum where people are assholes and still post every day. Oh and they don't say shit like I REMEMBER WHEN THINGS WERE AWESOME AND NOW THEY AREN'T.

It's crazy! How can this be?

Esuohlim Jul 1st, 2014 08:21 PM

Fuck you and your new forum full of gay assholes.

I-Mock should be the ONLY place with gay assholes anyone needs :eek

Colonel Flagg Jul 7th, 2014 11:34 AM

A big :bestthread to both Milhouse and Tadao for the last two posts.

Tadao Jul 7th, 2014 09:51 PM

Yep that doesn't work either. Probably because reunions are for losers.

caffman Sep 1st, 2014 04:29 PM

Hellooooooooooooooooo

Vaporman87 Sep 6th, 2014 01:05 PM

I would say that any slow down in activity here in this forum has to be, at least partially, a result of the difficulty new registrants (new blood) have in becoming registered.

As an owner of a site, I know how annoying spambot registering can be. But in this day and age of instant registration using stuff like Facebook or Twitter accounts, the days of good old fashioned "enter your info" registration is doomed to die a slow death.

But that issue is compounded by having to actually send an email, then wait several days for your credentials. It's going to kill any chance for bringing new life to these forums.

Just an opinion.

But hey, at least the article comments should see an uptick.

captain516 Sep 6th, 2014 01:29 PM

Wow an All Your Base reference in 2014. That's old enough to be considered retro in stupid internet fad years.

Vaporman87 Sep 6th, 2014 02:17 PM

It came down (in stupid internet fads) to that or Yatta! But we couldn't figure out a way to work that one in.

Still... Yatta!

Mad Melvin Sep 29th, 2014 01:34 PM

I was always more of a lurker, but I really enjoyed this place once. I signed up in 2003, back when I was a teenage douchebag. Got a lot of laughs here throughout the years, but then life happened and I sort of forgot about this forum for a few years. I am now 30 years old, and still a fucking douchebag, so I think waltzing down the ol' memory lane is just honky dory! Here are some highlights I remember fondly:

- mburbank vs. VinceZeb and the whole catholicsamurai thing
- FatSatan was a funny guy. There were others too, but I don't wanna feed their bloated egos.
- Helm, the Greek god of all things metal
- At one point, the forum was so full of made up characters, it was hard to keep up. They became more absurd as time went on
- The secret santa events were a hoot
- Noob bashing. Some did not survive it, some proved to be funny, some just stayed even though no one liked them.
- Made a couple of friends here, altough the friendships didn't stand the test of time


As sad as it may seem, this forum really was a big deal in my life at one point. Thanks for that, I guess.

zeldasbiggestfan Oct 6th, 2014 07:29 PM

I still feel really bad about my shitty Secret Santa presents to Seth :(

PS: Even though I was one of those guys that was detested, I really enjoyed it when this place was alive. So, thanks

Kitsa Oct 8th, 2014 11:53 PM

Hockey threads are even dead. So much for that.

Aaarg Oct 9th, 2014 01:43 PM

we can talk bugs tho!

Kitsa Oct 9th, 2014 07:14 PM

:/

10,000 Volt Ghost Oct 12th, 2014 01:41 AM

hockey + bugs = hugs?

Kitsa Oct 15th, 2014 05:39 PM

Columbus hockey is known for hugs.

Where are all you assholes at anyways.

MarioRPG Mar 1st, 2015 04:57 PM

I haven't been posting but I still check here pretty often. I just don't have much to say haha.

stevetothepast Mar 10th, 2015 11:53 AM

I usually check in every few weeks or so as well.
