You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover

Hello buds,

A good deal of exciting news on the forefront. First up is that after months of bugging the company who makes the software which turns our GIFs into SWF, they sent us the C++ source code for the GIF portion of the code and davidc managed to track down the bug. Now we're just waiting for them to send us a new version of the binary and we'll be ready to do another test. A little more about this at YTMND Development Blog. You can also view the source code of the new flash template here.

Next up is that the refactor is now being worked on at least 30 hours a week. We have the new design for YTMND.com. I've spent the last few months slowly rewriting all of the core libraries where needed and the dev site is beginning to come together. It's coming.


I know I'm guilty of prematurely announcing features, and I don't want you all too excited. It's still probably a couple months off, as this is a rewrite of 90% of YTMND's code base, as well as a 100% rewrite of the HTML and Javascript. So much of what currently runs YTMND was written in 2004 and 2005, and I've learned a lot since then. I'll try to update the dev blog frequently about what I'm working on and the progress. At some point in the future people will be needed to beta test the new site, as everything down to the login system has been completely rewritten.

I just got the new designs last week so I've been chopping them up. I know you all want a peek, but be patient my prettys.


T-shirts are still coming in, but this week I'm sending off some designs to the printer to do some test prints and see which designs end up looking good and which will fall apart after a few runs through the washer. I've got an actual third party on the store, so this time around things should be more organized. I'll post more information sometime next week on what designs we chose.

Some of you may have noticed that your votes are showing up delayed, or you are able to comment more frequently than previously allowed. This is due to DB maintenance which is required for the transition to the new code base, and it will continue for the next few weeks. Please try not to abuse the site at this time or you will receive swift punishment.

Max Goldberg is the sole creator, owner and administrator of YTMND. A New York City resident, Goldberg registers a tone of dispassionate wonder at the phenomenon he has let loose on the Web and makes little attempt to explain its popularity. He is known for having created the first YTMND site. [edit] Penchants Max enjoys drinking Grey Goose vodka and deleting users/YTMNDs. [edit] History * In July 2006 max entered a Snakes on a Plane contest which rewards the fan with the most votes with a free sreening of the movie along with 100 friends. As a special thankyou to the YTMNDers who have voted for him, max has offered to take YTMNDers from the NYC area to the screening. However, his place in the fan contest was removed because the managers of the SOAP fan contest discovered that someone had been votehacking his name. His votes were restored a few days before the end of the contest.

YTMND needs to be more aggressive in punishing people who post shock sites without classifying them as NSFW. Violin.ytmnd.com is a good example of this. It was top-viewed today despite being disgusting. It wasn't even NSFW. Please crackdown on this somehow, Max.

Max needs to get more active mods. Right now there are only two or three of them. The only problem is Max can't just make anyone a mod. He wants people he can trust and will help with the site.

There were plenty of users that could have been responsible mods. There probably still are now. Hanktherapper comes to mind. It's frustrating to stay active in a community when the leader never follows through on promises. Remember when max asked users to petition for modship? That was over 2 years ago. Has anything happened since then?

Yeah, you're right Max should do nothing and let everyone think YTMND is for racist retards. IP banning works because even if they keep changing their IPs (assuming those idiots know how to do it) they eventually move on. Unless they are die hards like Joshcube, but even he comes back in spurts.

Sometimes the world looks perfect, Nothing to rearrange. Sometimes you get a feeling Like you need some kind of change. No matter what the odds are this time, Nothing's going to stand in my way. This flame in my heart, And a long lost friend Gives every dark street a light at the end. Standing tall, on the wings of my dream. Rise and fall, on the wings of my dream. The rain and thunder The wind and haze I'm bound for better days. It's my life and my dream, Nothing's going to stop me now.

Thereís a time for love and a time for living. You take a chance and face the wind. An open road and a road thatís hidden A brand new life around the bend. There were times when I lost a dream or two. Found the trail, and at the end was you. Thereís a path you take and a path untaken The choice is up to you my friend. Nights are long but youíre on your way To a brand new life, Brand new life, Brand new life around the bend.

It's a rare condition, in this day and age, to read any good news on the newspaper page. Love and tradition of the grand design, some people say it's even harder to find. Well then, there must be some magic clue inside these gentle walls. 'Cause all I see is a tower of dreams. Real love burstin' out of every seam. As days go by, we're gonna fill our house with happiness. The moon may cry, we're gonna smother the blues with tenderness. As days go by, it's the bigger love of the family.

1/3rd of a year and no still no word from King Max I! He has deserted a fanbase that's deserting the site. Even if he does finish the work (lol) and turn YTMND into YouTubeMND, what's the point? This site is beyond repair. Also, if there really is a plan to update this famous web gargle, a moderation system would be grand! Preferably one made up of responsible users and not just Max's friends.

I am not dedicated enough nor do I have the patience or motivation to help run this site, but I am dead sure there are a number of dedicated users who would thrive under moderation responsibilties and help make this site fun again. What's the point anyway? Barely anyone comes here anymore compared to the visitor figures of a year ago, and it's Max's site. He could change ytmnd.com to a pic of a polar bear in a top hat if he liked.

So please either move them to the hall of fame to get them off top viewed or change the settings so once a site gets a certain number of views (100,000, 250,000, 1,000,000 or whatever you want) it will no longer show up on the top viewed list.

Max posted a threat on a moonman site last week saying he was going to "drop the hammer" on the mooncrew if they don't start to mark their garbage NSFW. That is better than any news update we could ask him to make. The mooncrew are major contributors in the death of ytmnd. Here's hoping max follows through on it.

You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover posted by max on 2009-04-22 13:54:53 Hello buds, A good deal of exciting news on the forefront. First up is that after months of bugging the company who makes the software which turns our GIFs into SWF, they sent us the C++ source code for the GIF portion of the code and davidc managed to track down the bug. Now we're just waiting for them to send us a new version of the binary and we'll be ready to do another test. A little more about this at YTMND Development Blog. You can also view the source code of the new flash template here. Next up is that the refactor is now being worked on at least 30 hours a week. We have the new design for YTMND.com. I've spent the last few months slowly rewriting all of the core libraries where needed and the dev site is beginning to come together. It's coming. I know I'm guilty of prematurely announcing features, and I don't want you all too excited. It's still probably a couple months off, as this is a rewrite of 90% of YTMND's code base, as well as a 100% rewrite of the HTML and Javascript. So much of what currently runs YTMND was written in 2004 and 2005, and I've learned a lot since then. I'll try to update the dev blog frequently about what I'm working on and the progress. At some point in the future people will be needed to beta test the new site, as everything down to the login system has been completely rewritten. I just got the new designs last week so I've been chopping them up. I know you all want a peek, but be patient my prettys. T-shirts are still coming in, but this week I'm sending off some designs to the printer to do some test prints and see which designs end up looking good and which will fall apart after a few runs through the washer. I've got an actual third party on the store, so this time around things should be more organized. I'll post more information sometime next week on what designs we chose.

I don't know much about how it works, but how about it so if I posted a ytmnd link on my friends Facebook wall, he could watch it there, and click the link if he wanted to vote or comment. I have had the urge to do this numerous times. If this were implemented, anyone who goes to the given individuals page can see the ytmnd without leaving the page. This would really help in the sharing of ytmnds, and would really increase awareness of the site through facebook, as well as grow the community.

The only way this place would ever work right is if you disabled voting and gave to only people who agreed to (and you believed would) vote fair. It's just pointless the way the majority of these idiots want it to be. It's pointless.

Hank, I agree with that. But I bet the Spy is a huge part of the revenue steam. I love the spy - but it's just stupid by this point. And pathetic eric - if I don't comment on your site you report what I voted - and you basically invite me to comment. Then you come here and say I should be banned from commenting. "Max, ban anyone who doesn't trade 5s with me, the most useless site maker. And let me insult them publicly for not trading 5s with me and prevent them from defending themselves. Thanx."

The only reason I suggest it is maybe the active membership at the moment is small enough to do it. It comes down to incentive. People not only don't have any incentive to not just abuse the vote system like Ocho and Prairiedog do, but in reality they are badly punished if they dare to vote fair. So locking people out of being able to vote would give them incentive to stop being idiots. It would all but eliminate alt account vote abuse. And most importantly it would reward good sites, instead of f*ggotry

And I'm sorry if I report what you vote, but it's hard to keep quiet when you constantly change that vote for reasons unrelated to the site itself. I also get the feeling that you sit on the spy and wait for me to post a site. You seem to save votes for people you don't like. And then I see you downvoting all of the sites on the JohnWhitecloud account...because? He's handing out a bunch of 5's? You're always bitching at people who give out a bunch of 5's. Zaalnog, wisdumcube...WHO CARES! THAT'S THEIR F*CKING CHOICE, NOT YOURS!!!!

And by no means am I trying to say I'm a perfect voter. But I know what fair voting is. There's just no point to it. You have 3 or 4 people left who give 2s,3s and 4s - and you have 30 people just trading 5s with each other - there's really no f*cking point in being one of the 3 or 4 people. Especially because all you are doing is making it so you can't compete. So yeah I could make another profile for just posting sites so i could fair vote without reprisals - but there's just no point. Probably never was.

No, you're wrong Eric. I'm not saying I'm the best YTMNDer - I'm not even in the best site maker's league. But I say with complete confidence that I'm better than Lacrossestar83. But according your votes, to a lot of other people's votes - that's not true. Why is that? Because of how I vote. Do you understand, you hypocritical nerd? And the bottom line is - The troll who posts the asset over and over again - assets that intended to do nothing but to troll has better ratings than the honest voter who...

puts effort into making fairly good sites. And it's like - Oh gee, I wonder why this place sucks now. I wonder I why site activity has and continues to drop? It must be Umfuld's comments - that we go out of our way to invite - including making dozens of sites a week just so he'll comment. His comments are the reason YTMND has died. His honest votes are the problem. I understand that you're like a for real child and sh*t - but you're in college now, so, feel free to grow up any time. We'll be okay with that.
