I never much cared for the site, but I joined up for the message boards an hour or two after visiting, from Newgrounds. It IS kinda depressing to see all of these "people" inhabiting it, though, and I wasn't here to enjoy the full hilarity. :/

I still say it's my fault for signing up on the boards with my touch of death.

First I went through the site, read all the Minimocks and Visionary Darkness articles, and then I entered the message board because I liked the site so much.

I don't read this board because I like it anymore. I read it because it something to do and it's literally addicting.

I'll re-iterate for the millionith time that there needs to be some sort of quality control filter on the board. I again recommend we ban people. But whatever, that's not going to happen, even though I don't understand why.

As for the site itself, I joined 'back in the day' when it was an entirely different beast. Before it was mockery, now it's 'wacky' nostalgia. So, yeah, I don't get how or why that happened, but I have no say in the matter and Roger's always going to run the site however he alone sees fit. Which I guess is admirable in itself, even if it's resulted in turning this into more of a giant blog than a humor site.

Somethingawful is a lot more like what this site used to be, and their forums are a lot more up my alley. I only wish I'd gone that route instead of this from day one, but I'm here now. Whether I stay or go is largely dependant on whether or not I have anything else to do.

I remain thankful for the friends I've met and made here.

Hey Drama Queens.....It's a freakin messageboard!! Nobody is holding you captive and making you post here! Too much thought is being spent discussing the old board vs. the new board. If you don't like it here, you can be gone in one click. NO ONE is making you stay.

Nothing is more pathetic than making an "I'm Leaving" post. Who the fuck cares. Leave.

I don't really think anybody will really miss anyone if they just dissapear off this site for a breather once in a while. I hope you come back and see us some time NO0b3. I really did like the Vagina's are ugly thread and I think that should be put away in the anals of Mockery.

There are a lot of people around here who suck and I'd be happy to ban, but I'm also going to respect the way Roger wants to run the boards. So we only ban people who do certain shit, like post porn or try to flood the front page of General Blabber with entirely useless threads, or just generally try to fuck things up for everyone else.

We never banned people for other reasons back on the old boards that everyone seems to think were so much greater, so I don't think it has anything to do with what that administrators are or aren't doing. In fact, back on the old boards for the longest time Rog was the ONLY administrator.

The site also didn't have the same amount of attention around then, Protester. It was easier to weed out people ourselves cause there were a lot fewer of them.

dedicated to giving due credit to works of genius that have never enjoyed the spotlight.

That's why there's plenty of nostalgic stuff, it's always been an interest of mine. Just as video games have, and making comic books (a la pickleman, pixel pals, etc), and making flash games and parodies.

I'm not like other sites because my interests are far too broad for me to be able to tolerate staying within one niche forever. That's why I don't update the old music mockery sites or anything anymore. Believe me, I had a great fucking time making them... Winky, Anti-Rave, Metal Mockery, etc - they all came out far better than I could have imagined and the reactions from angry people were superb. But there comes a time where you feel like you're just beating a dead horse, and while some people choose to go on... I stop working on those sites and let them just stay online so people can see them as they were in their prime.

I'm going to keep adding new things to I-Mockery, new sections, new types of pieces... I want variety. It's continuing to do whatever I'm interested in that has kept me working on this site all these years. I know people want me to do another "Things That Must Be Destroyed" and this and that... but I don't do those things unless I feel like it. I'm not gonna force that shit, because it's forced humor that is uninteresting to read. If I'm having a good time working on something, I generally feel confident that it's going to come out pretty funny.

http://www.i-mockery.com/main.asp

A lot more than just a "nostalgia blog"... take a look around. It's just a large humor site, plain and simple. Perhaps someday I'll be able to settle down into a single niche that I want to work on forever... but for now, I'm just going to keep doing what comes natural to me and what interests me. That's what's worked for I-Mockery since the beginning, and should that disappoint some people... well there's always other sites out there for you to enjoy. It's free entertainment and nobody's forcing anybody to stay here.

Honestly, I don't think these boards were as fun as they used to be in june, when i joined. I really only joined because i hated the hulk alot and everyone on here said it was so good. Then, however, I got hopelessly addicted like chojin and came to enjoy the elevated level of humor on this site and moreover on these boards. Now theres all these people who ruin downright hilarious threads. But thats the mods job to handle that and I dont question anything they do.

Im going to miss noob because he was one of those people who provided that humor that was really out of my grasp at times but still made me laugh, just like Professor Cool and Zero Signal

RIP noob

Mock,
havent popped a 'plur' pill in over a year now, So I'd say im pretty sober. I'm agreeing with noob because over the past few months the board has become more obnoxious. Especially with all the Porn ad's and 'HOW TO MAKE MORE MONEY, CLICK ON MY LINK' We never had that on the old board, and being someone who has been here Far longer than most, and has gotten more grief than most, I belive I do have a right to voice my opioion, especially when it concerns a friend who I met on this board.

Now most of you will probally say, o0o0o0o, you met them on the board, go find some real friends. We'll I met chojin on the board and we met, exchange b-day, christmas presents, and still talk, and blackflag Always wishes me a happy birthday, and still feels bad when he missed it. And Noob has helped me out through many occasions of bad boyfriends, and stupid people. I consider them friends.

What I meant by the administrators need a good kick in the ass, was because if you havent noticed, People who started on this board are dissapearing slowly, People that we all once knew. What about the nyc trip, (that I missed, sorry.) But from what I know half those people are gone now, because of all the bullshit with this site. Don't get me wrong, Yes, it is a public board, maybe a little too public, when you can go on YAHOO, and type in "IMOCKERY" and the first thing that comes up is this site.

And Rog, I wasnt bashing your creative attempts at makeing things 'exciting' around here, and working your little heart out to things that interest you and posteing them, because this is YOUR site, But to many, weither they want to admit or not, It seems that everyone else is over-running it with their lame attempts to make you notice them, And that is over-whelming all in itself.

You used to be able to come on this board and laugh your ass off for hours, of course it used to be all towards me, (boy, do I love carni), but now its just one post after another of useless shit that gets thrown down in page 3, because nobody wants to bother with the same shit we once all used to laugh about and got over.

Chojin puts this board as 'adicting', but once you get off the computer it no longer appeals to anyone that doenst sit there and jerk off to the pictures section. It was once 'smart Mocking' Now its 'show me your boobs' over and over and over again. Maybe im wrong, but there's plenty of other sites out there to see someones boobs.

I guess Noob's post just really got to me, we all had our characters, and now everyone is just trying to be liked, which was never what this board seemed to ever be about. Hell Ive seen best friends go at each other because of some lame comment.

Im happy to see this site become more known, but I miss the 'old' people it once produced.

I couldn't agree more. People who bitch that the board has gone to shit annoy me even more than played out characters that don't know when to quit.

"The boards suck now! None of the good people post anymore"

Boo fucking hoo. You've got an internet connection. Go e-mail these hilarious demi-gods or talk to them on AIM or start another board that I'm sure will be perfect and fuck off. Good riddance.

I will miss parts of Noob, but at times, he was just a dipshit who did nothin but make terrible threads called something like "I'm sick" or something completly stupid like that. I know a lot of people hate me here, and wish I was gone forever, but it IS a message board where people post their oponions. Not where people try to post funny pictures and do OUTRAGIOUS things on the internet.

I came to i-mockery a little bit after christmas of last year, and I thought it was THE best site on the internet. And it still is my favorite site. But I remember it a lot more fun when I didn't know the forum users. I laughed more then I ever did in my entire life at times before I joined the forums. I don't regret it because I met a plethore of really cool people here, but it seemed that I had one good month and BAM! So many stupid people came here.

I don't know what I'm saying, but I guess I agree with both here, the administrators and the members. :/

I'm not going to take sides on this, 'cause it's not my place to compare the old boards to the new boards. But you really can't tell the old members to quit just because they're pissed at the way the new boards are going. The main reason people come to these boards are to read comments from the old members(chojin, rongi, whoreable, carnivore, ect.). They're usually the only ones who contribute anything to the board. If they leave the boards will go on a down-hill spiral. And it makes sense for them to want the boards the way they used to be. There were alot less people and the community seemed more like a family type thing where you always had people to talk to about stuff you couldn't talk to other people about. Whereas, on the new boards it seems that there are so many new people joining everyday that the boards are tearing part and becoming more of a 'Lets fuck up everybody's thread' type thing. And you can't hold important conversatioin without somebody trying to add an unfunny joke in.

But on the other side people can't be pissed because the boards aren't a secret club anymore. RoG works hard to make his site viewable to a variety of audience, and in return a variety of people will show up. And though some of them won't be worth shit, it's part of having a growing community. And if RoG didn't advertise with other sites and such the site/forums might not even be here.

So... I don't know who's right or who's wrong in this situation. Just wanted to post my two cents. :/

Yea, it's hilarious comments like that that just totally prove that the level of humour from before is just beyond their comprehension.

Lenor, you sound retarded. People's sense of what is funny changes. The same thing that was funny on the old heavenly boards would be stale to anyone now, I'm sure. Yet you bitch and bitch. Let me let you in on something... message boards are interactive. You could DO SOMETHING about it. Add to the great humour and community you bitch is so absent today. But you won't. You'll bitch. And cry. And complain. And whine.

You bitch about the ads which are so fucking insignificant compared to just about any other site online that gets even half the traffic I-Mock does. Ever contribute anything to this site? Are you paying for the server costs to run it?

You seem to come from the school of "oh I was here a few years ago so that automatically makes me cooler and more important than anyone else". I think virtually every post you make refers to the fact that you're from the 'old boards'. Guess what... nobody gives a fuck.

It's no wonder people still make fun of you. Go away.

Sigh, since I have only been visiting this site for a few years I guess I woulden't know when it was "better." But it seems to me that the comedy is just getting better. I never found the site itself as "blog-like" where a bunch of different people post whatever's on their chest for the world to see (or ignore). I see it as entertainment. Like a variety magazine complete with article's, activities, and puzzles. It is plain to see that the intentions of the site isn't to make controversey, or to have some sort of fame for one main feature from which to milk- but to entertain the visitors. And catering to just one narrow type of audiance doesn't really help with progress. Nor does staying with one main point of focus. Sure, some of the stuff doesn't rub my rhubarb, but because of the mass amounts of content I can just look elsewhere.

As for the problems with the retro-obsession: I like to hear about all the vintage reminicence from a slightly older perspective, they remember it alot better than I do. That is as long as it doesn't get outta hand and becomes just a nostalgia site. But I am sure this was already well established.
As for the boards... it is completely removed as far as I am concerned. Something that the quality is directly effected by the user can go either ways. Although, we as users can attempt to take care of that ourselves.

But something bothered me about what Lenore said... Porn ads? I haven't seen any myself but... that was another thing I liked was how this site kept its dignaty by not traveling down that road. I sure hope she was seeing things.

Edit: Lenore has a bad case of the "Nasty Addituditus" from where I am standing.
