carol of the bells

seasons greetings pals

As I sit here just finishing my christmas eve dinner of spare ribs and chow mein, I felt the need to give you all a little update of what's been going on at YTMND headquarters.

It's been a long year, and I don't think I've accomplished as much as I would have liked. I hope to change that this year. The last few months have consumed me in a duty I am not only not very good at, but something that causes me to die a little each time I have to deal with it: advertising.

As the site grows in size and cost, advertising becomes more and more of a requirement in order to keep enough money coming in to pay the bills. I've been trying to manage this all on my own and honestly not doing very well, I should stick to programming.

Luckily, I signed up with Federated Media who will be representing all of YTMND's ad space. This means in the coming months as I slowly leave more and more up to them, I can get back to coding. I know the site is riddled with bugs, broken features and horrible abusive users.

I aim to change that, and my first order of business is to launch a new moderation setup which includes a couple hundred new moderaters. I will go into this more in a future post, so if you send me a private message asking me to be a moderator, I'm going to delete you.

Anyway, that's all I have to say for the time being. Stay safe this xmas/new years. I'll be back in the new year to make a fresh start of YTMND.

And Wesley Willis ISN'T some jackass who recorded a bunch of songs and put them on the internet? If YouTube had existed ten years ago, Wesley Willis would have been its biggest star. I love Welsey Willis. He headbutted me once. But he is not a genius in any sense of the word.

I'd also like to see nsfw sites on the homepage, just with the tag. The are some good nsfw sites that don't get enough recognition. DZK's site just got tagged nsfw and was kicked off the main page. ... But then again the main page would be crawling with pron, so I dunno what to do
