Golden Brown

hey folks,

I bet you've been wondering what I've been up to lately. I know I've been keeping pretty quiet, but I promise I've been extraordinarily busy. I've been trying to keep on top of people exploiting the system, I even added batch delete to the admin site. In the last week I deleted over 600 accounts, so you probably saw a lot of scores normalize.

The catch is that I haven't really been working on YTMND all that much. I've been working on a new website. Well, two actually. As a lot of you know, I never made YTMND expecting people to actually use it, beyond say 10-20 people. This time around, instead of taking six days to make an entire site and then spend the rest of my life fixing the various exploitable odds and ends and restructuring how everything works to make it scale, I'm actually designing as much as I can up front.

The first site is sort of generic, and probably won't be open to the public in any form that you'd want to use it. It's a scalable media store for websites like YTMND, or anything that requires hosting and organization of lots of small files. I hope to move YTMND over to use it once it's finished. For anyone interested in the technical aspects, it's a lot like MogileFS, Amazon's S3, and GoogleFS. It's a fairly large challenge on many levels.

Warning, this is where I get wordy:

The second site I'm waiting to announce until it's more developed. To get your brain churning, I've long held that most sites on the internet are more or less the same. Flickr, Youtube, YTMND, 4chan, Forums, "Blogs", etc. It's all the same media, but with different feature sets and organizations. Inherently, large communities form around these things which are usually obvious. Smaller sub-communities form as well, but are usually unnoticed or unknown.

Sites such as facebook aim to turn communities of people who know each other in person into an information sharing network. On the internet communities don't work like that, there are always people coming and going, alumni and "noobs". There will always be a larger number of people lurking than there will be participating. In most cases when you open up a system that allows anyone to participate, you end up getting more garbage and as a community gets larger, that becomes painfully more apparent.

I've always avoided "social-networking" as I feel like most of it's bullshit marketing drivel and when it comes down to it, the sites provide more useless garbage (SEND THIS FROG GIFT TO YOUR FRIEND FOR $1!!!) than they do actual usefulness. I don't care if you are posting this twitter(tm) message from your toilet. I don't want to know what you are listening to right this second. I don't want to read your profile. I don't want to browse your self-censored "wall". I want to sink my teeth into; something worth looking at.

This is why I'm not rich. I don't see the point of adding a facebook or myspace plugin even though it would bring millions of new people to YTMND, the kind of people that look at and click ads, as well as the kind that ruin communities.

I think YTMND ended up as an extension of how I feel in that aspect. YTMND users are what they make. Your profile page shows your sites, your comments, etc. It isn't the description of you that you wrote yourself, your avatar, your birth sign or your religious views, because I don't care about any of those things. If you want to show people who or what you are, do it using what's available.

This has caused a lot of people to create alts, and in most cases (where people aren't using them to upvote themselves) it's to separate styles and remove the associations with their main account. I find this sort of amazing, because outside of having knowledge through the admin system, I'd never match a lot of the people to their alts. It's almost like two completely different people. So how do you allow people to participate without the desire to split into multiple personalities? Or the burning need to create tons of accounts in order to prop their original account up to be seen by more people?

I feel like IRC is a perfect example of how real internet communities work. You have a plethora of people involved in multiple sub-communities at once, most of which have nothing to do with the name of their communities (or channels in this case) but grew into different groups of people that share the same space. How these communities start is less important than the fact that at a certain point, most smaller internet communities don't have an underlying theme beyond the people that make up the community itself.

So to summarize, I'm taking everything I've learned about the internet and more importantly managing (hah!) a large internet community and using it to create a new site where I'm going to avoid large communities like the plague. I want to create a site for people who want to see the internet as it really is and has been for the last decade: raw and uncut.

Do you remember when Intel was concerned with making better processors, not "mashups", back before a stupid phone caused an avalanche of contemptible, biased hype, like when paying 1.6 billion dollars for a business that will almost assuredly cost more to host than it will ever make was still a ludicrous idea, back when introverts ruled the internet?

Me too. This is who I want to cater to, this is who I've catered to on YTMND: myself.

So what does this mean for YTMND? Not much, yet. I'm still popping back and forth, but ultimately I think it means I'm going to give a lot more control over the site to mods, which I think is a good thing (assuming I pick good mods). Anyway, there will probably be some downtime this weekend as I will be in Chicago moving servers around, I may even pop in on lulzcon if I don't think it will cause me physical harm. Stay tuned for more updates semi-soon.

"Oh man, there's this place called Giordano's in Chicago. It's all over the city, and there are also a few spots in Florida. I'd recommend checking it out, it isn't bad." Isn't bad? Giordano's pizza is ambrosia on bread. Also, this new site is intriguing, even though I still have no idea what it is. But if it means passing more control to ytmnd mods, then HOORAY NEW SITE!

oh Max, dont leave us. I gotta let you know Max, I know your intentions are noble, and they're great, hell if I was in your position, I'll probably do the same as well. However, you gotta understand, what is the internet? (as we know, a series of tubes) Why is OVER 9000!!! so popular? Because of the people. We've grow to love ytmnd, I personally collect sites, I vote on them, then I copy them from my internet history and put them in a folder. YTMND is the only place that mixes humor and message.

Sure that newer people will come and epic fail at understanding what it's all about, but people come and go. Why instantly make it so that those people will not understand our humor? By completely excluding them, because you think people are bad, which they are, you've created a wall, you've decided what to do before those people have a chance to defend themselves. Bringing more people isnt a problem, because we will deal with them when they create problems. We're all 100% behind you, Max.

You HAVE to go to the http://www.chicagopizzaandovengrinder.com/ 2121 NORTH CLARK STREET 773-248-2570 Pizza Pot Pie, no other place has it, it is soo good. Good Salads too, and Mediterranean Bread. You can get deep dish pizza anywhere. Another good place is Pizzeria Uno on 29 East Ohio and Pizzeria Due on 619 North Wabash Avenue. The birthplace of the Deep Dish.

I wonder what you think of Livejournal. Most people on there tend to be in smaller groups, and watch only the groups that interest them. Sure, the whole site is devoted to the lives of individuals, but there are very few asshats, compared to other sites (and when an asshat does pop up, you just block them from commenting, and then the rest of the community does the same).

Max, how do you intend this "community" idea to work and not make it some sort of giant circle jerk? Because putting a size limit would be, IMO, not that great, and the limiting of illegal activities would also be hard to control (IE Child Porn, Orkut thing). Would these different small communities have some sort of communication or would they be cut off?

"avoid large communities like the plague" What? As soon as you announce it every jackoff here will go running there trying to be the first at everything. Spreading all the crap that YTMND and other internets have spurted out and sh*t it onto that site. Don't you consider YTMND a big community? I'm sure its at least 99x bigger than any IRC channel you consider to be a "real" one. I think if you had any hope for this project to be an actual success, you wouldn't have told YTMNDers about it.

YTMND user groups would have the same effect on this site as you discuss for a potential new site. Gathering users together into a group with assorted features such as "Member Sites" "Member Recommendations" etc. without taking away from ytmnd as a whole or each site. All it does is provide a more convenient and passive system for the active supplements that people typically use (like #?!) to pass along ytmnd related information.

I feel the same way. When max released the news post and said anyone wanting to be a moderator should make a site I made 2 completely sarcastic sites providing no actual merit as to why I should actually be appointed mod. However as time passes I can see there is a big mess to clean up on YTMND just about every time of the day and I think that my approach to YTMND as a whole is mature enough to handle the task of moderator unlike you know who.

I sudder to think that Fourest could become a mod based on his popularity alone. I know he wants to be one. I know I can come off as being a prick (a lot of people don't catch on to my sarcasm), but I'm not a petty, vengeful person. I wouldn't pull an adverb and flag a site as NSFW because I didn't like it. Hell, I'm twice the age of most of the users here.

Great news post. I agree 100% with your opinions on social networking features, max. I'm glad you see YTMND's lack of them as an advantage. YTMND should remain focused on user created content, not the users themselves. To be is to do. Do be do be do...

alright. but for some reason, i just have this weird feeling that someday, sooner than i'd like, something bad will happen to this site. Not saying any fault or blame or anger, just sayin' that I have a weird feeling.

I like how you are thinking about giving more control over to the mods, mainly becuase its really hard for there to be one super mod regulating everything than it is if more control is distributed between lower mods so that your job is a helluva lot easier, especially since your working really hard on your new websites.

Hmm... I am intrigued by these new sites of yours as well as your plans to fix up ytmnd. Oh well to be honest, it is not of significant interest to me as of yet. I am only here reading your news because I have a big headache from playing Halo 3.

Good luck with those other projects Max, good to see your taking on other things other then Ytmnd. Not choosing to selling out is the best possible step anyone with fame/power could do. Bravo.

We don't have Crips and Bloods, we have the GD's and the VLN. Gangsters in Chicago can't spell Crip and Blood, which is why they have to use abbreviations.

Also we have a gang with the coolest name ever: The Insane Popes. That's a real street gang, you can look them up if you want.

just as a point of interest what do the gang abbreviations GD's and VLN stand for? could it be the "Gay Dude's and the Vagina Licking N*ggers"?

I'm intregued by this new site idea, but as a lowly n00b who has never used IRC, how can I get in on this? Because, on the other hand, I do remember the time long before "Web 2.0" allowed crap to be seen everywhere, and before cell phones brought it everywhere in the real world.

This feels so relevant and so not. But Tom was on the Today show this morning and I, as some who joined myspace before it became the hit and snowballed into a phrase, was curious. Myspace is a way to show people how you want to be seen. Much like an account on ytmnd, you put what you're comfortable with. I feel screen names on ytmnd are characters, and people on myspace, are well people. still, both can lie just as easily as the other.

Are you going to fix the site anytime soon? It's not letting me create YTMNDs.

Its awesome that your doing your own thing so clearly minded. That you wont go with the flow because its in the "best interests" I like the way YTMND is, where you are judged on your comments and pages that you make, not on who you are and your standpoints on life. Its simple, and we all like it this way. I'm glad the people running YTMND also know that things are good this way too. Never go with the flow, always do it your way, and fu'ck the $ media industry for messing up our internetz.

Have you ever thought that perhaps your inability to make YTMND profitable was not related to some stupid article about group enemies or your big anti-corporate heart but rather just grey goose and bad coding?
