act like you know

hello buds,

This is part two of YTMND "Cheetos Boredom Busters". This six part series will occur once per week over the next month and a half and cover a variety of topics people tend to take too seriously.

I've been trying to cut the fat lately, both on the site and in my personal life. It's required a lot of sacrifice; gone are the days of steak and grey goose every night. It's been hard, but I've managed to cut my spending almost in half just by drinking well liquor, cancelling my subscription to The Economist and waiting a few extra months between haircuts.


The last couple months of my life have been spent dealing with the IRS, you'd be surprised to find out how displeased they are when you don't pay taxes for a few years. You'll (hopefully) be pleased to know that YTMND's financial situation is now, for the most part, sorted out. YTMND will stick around for at least the near future, so don't go jumping out of any windows. I may actually be forced to start selling some T-shirts again to pay off some of YTMND's debt to the IRS, so for those of you clamoring for a shirt: do you like the original design or would you prefer our current logo on a shirt?

I've been waiting on the third-party developer of the flash kit I've used to figure out the various GIF->SWF issues, but for the most part sounds have been converting perfectly to SWF so in the near future I may move all sound playing to SWF, which should clear up a lot of the current Quicktime issues. I don't think a single person checked out the source code for the new flash YTMND template, which was pretty much as I expected.

I've known for a week now that I needed to post a "blog entry" at noon today yet I'm only now writing it at 11:30am, much like with most other aspects of the site I've been procrastinating. I'm trying pretty hard to break the habit of never finishing projects and only taking them to 70% completion, part of that is going back and finishing off a ton of old projects and features I never finished. I've noticed a lot of complaining about site problems in the past, so I am curious to know, of all the features that have ever been mentioned, what would you most like to see in the next few weeks?

ytmnd shirts are a waste of money, i got the upvoter one like 2 and a half years ago and wore it once. this was the first time in 2 and a half years that i pulled it out of my closet, it's so....cold....

why the hell would you visit a web site on your iPhone for? Are you some sort of masochist? Are you so addicted to the internet that you can't even get off it for 2 minutes? I bet you bring your iPhone to the toilet, just so you can look at YTMND while you take a sh*t

Is it just me, or are site ratings inflating to ridiculous proportions? The lowest rated site on up and coming is 4.35. That's crazy. Also, there is so little traffic that some sites are staying on up and coming for almost a week. We should do something about that. I want to know what my sites are really worth. Also it would be nice to see not so many people getting shafted because they don't have the connections to jump to up and coming to get attention from the rest of ytmnd. It's a harsh climate.

"also, I think an old school ytmnds section would be good. like sites from '04 and '05 that were popular back then so new users can see it's roots." Fourest, you just described the worthwhile section and it sucks. Most of those sites haven't aged well because what was fresh back then has become horribly cliched by now.

Why don't you turn the boxes on the front page into modules which have settings so that users can define their own criteria of what should show up in those boxes... fourest and hank and probably others as well have a pretty specific idea of what they want but as you can see they do not agree. So a personalized homepage is in order.

Just because I give a lot of fives umfuld doesn't mean I overrated everything. I rarely vote on sites I don't like, and there are a lot of them trust me. I will middle vote sites too, but if they aren't on up and coming, there really isn't a point because they are going to die soon anyway.

Also doesn't the fact I complained about it show I have sympathy for other users? Hell, why would I care otherwise since I've had two sites in up and coming over the last week...I acknowledge when a system has become flawed (I wanted the featured section to be gone too) and I'm not going to sit by and selfishly benefit from it.

You fourest and dmaz have all at different times complained sites are being rated too highly. The biggest lul is when you do it on a comment page of a site you've 5'd. You idiots are what's broken. You just 5 everything because you want to be upvoted. So people who actually vote fair can't compete with your circle jerk - so we quit putting effort or quit making sites all together. None of you 3 are particularly funny. You avg. sites are probably higher than syncan's avg. People like you just ruin everything. That's fine. That's life on Earth. But while you ruin YTMND could you have the decency not to point the finger at the rest of us? You f*cking clown shoe?

This profile here cube, Umfuld, my average vote is higher than the average score of all YTMNDs. Do you understand that? Every vote I've ever made is higher than the average YTMND score. Yet how many in your gay circle jerk consider me to be a 'downvoter'. A 'downvoter' who votes higher than the average. F*ck you. Okay? And gosh, did greenscreen reply to my comment?

Umfuld, you are the ONLY one making these claims about dmaz and fourest and I. (I am not sure why you grouped us together in the first place because we are all unique users with different tastes.) What does that tell you? I also never once insinuated that you were a downvoter. I think you are a troll though. Why? You whine about everyone else, and do nothing constructive and you use alts to downvote sites. Also 90% of Yourthecoconutman's votes are fives. http://ytmnd.com/users/YourTheCoconutMan/votes .

Just because some people have a high % of fives doesn't mean they expect fives in return. I don't circle jerk, YourTheCoconutMan doesn't circle jerk, dmaz doesn't, fourest used to but we've all been through this before and he doesn't anymore. Get over yourself already. The problem is mostly internet traffic, and lack of voting users. I'm not complaining about site ratings as much as I am complaining that despite how high they are, they never fall of up and coming anymore. (They used to get 350 votes fast).
February 12th, 2009

There will always be overrated sites. It's the nature of the rating system in place, with or without my contribution. And no matter what I do, (aside from wasting my time and one voting a lot of sites) I won't be able to convince you away from your strange delusions. Let's say I stay away from ytmnd for a month. I challenge you to find something about this place that improves drastically from my absence. Nothing will improve aside from bad microphone sites. Why? Because I'm not sabotaging ytmnd, that's why.

either way would be good. there are a few users here who rarely make sites but when they do they are good, and they often slide under the radar. would be nice to have a way to notify when one of your fav ytmnders makes a new site. also, i checked out the cheetos website and its actually somewhat entertaining. then again, anything compared to doing my actual job is entertaining.

Yes, subscriptions sound gay(mostly because of youtube and their idea that # of subscribers = worth as human being, as if it has any correlation to the quality of videos), but honestly the first thing I do when I come here is go to recently created and look for user names, and it just really becomes inconvenient. If you could make it an addable section on the front page, that would be incredible, although I realize that might be a pain in the *ss for you to do.

I got a question for you, Max. I wanted to sponsor a site a while ago( I go through paypal) and it told me my credit card was no good. I was just wondering why it would say that when I try to sponsor? Seeing as it goes through paypal, is it a glitch or something?

You need to make a more comprehensive user profile that you can "watch" like someone already mentioned above; and info sections that people can fill in, that other users don't care about (like their inspirations, hometown, etc). It's all about the Facebook bullsh*t these days. Also, consider making it Cheetos branded.

Mr. Ink said it! Also, it is not only illegal to pay FEDERAL taxes, it is defined as supporting treason and punishable by death. Ignoring how the admendment for income tax was never properly ratified, once the government has broken consitiutional law, you are no longer required to pay them until a full trial has been implemented. Some of our FOUNDING principles: taxation with representation and you can't go to jail or destroy your life for not paying taxes. I'll drown in jizz before I pay a dime of I-tax.

Zero: what? So how do you know where it doesn't go if it's "unaccounted" for. It's goes for something illegal, so some member of the ruling elite can satisfy his addiction, whether it be for sex, drugs, power, legacy, etc. Plus it's all connected. I could show you flow charts listing the people on BODs, Defense Department, etc. and how they are either related to each other (closely, not like 7th cousins) or have been part of the same think tank or PR firm.

I hear you, but that's like saying 'there's a difference between arguing with your older brother on helping him rob someone and refusing to help him'. Of course there's a difference. One makes you a pussy for not standing up for what is right and not helping him. Federal taxes right now are illegal. Most either don't know it is illegal and refuse to know out of fear or are too scared to stand up and do the right thing and rather not have their simple mediocre life disturbed.

It is plain consititutional law that when the government breaks the law we don't have to pay, and if we do it is tantamount to treason, until all the offenders have been eradicated. Plus, the federal bank is NOT federal and a private entity that we do not have to pay taxes to or any funding. Imagine line item taxation. You pay for what you believe in. Watch the DoD collaspe, all our troops from around the world come home, congress pay

plummeting instead of giving themselves raises every year, lobbyists losing power...etc...plus the whole taxation without representation which can be easily proved that their interests have not been for the people (actually THEY have to prove it, not the other way around) plus the whole you can't be jailed OR retroactively punished for not paying your taxes. Those were some of the MAIN points of the revolution. Their blood has now gone for naught as all these tenets have been broken.

Ink proves himself to be an assumptive closeminded man of folly who employes stereotypes which is fine if a joke but it seems like he sincerely believes what he is saying. For the record I voted for nobody (and am quite eligible to vote) but knew Paul, Gravel, and Kuchinich were the only candidates who weren't addicted to their own legacy or power or greed, not owned by corporations, and wouldn't manipulate laws to shove their beliefs down the people's throat.

"We can be objectivist poindexters over this or we can be rational and realize federal imposition and federal money are the only things keeping the south from turning to outright helter skelter." Rational and Objective mean virtually the same thing. Get a dictionary. As for federal money, it most likely holds the south back, just like all welfare programs do to the people that they claim to help. Besides, Helter Skelter is an awesome song.

I would have no problem getting a team of people together to design shirts based around ytmnd and all that but the transfer of funds is where I get lost. Any thoughts?

Max, joking asides, the worthwhile sections needs to be tweaked. All it does is focus on sites from 2005 with ratings around 3.7 to 3.9 with as few as five votes. Most of those sites are not good even 2005 good. If you could just fix it so sites on there are rated higher than 4.0 with a better rotation of sites and years created, it would then be worthwhile.

I agree; hank's idea has my vote. Before the 2006 layout change the worthwhile section was pure gold. All sites had a 4.0+ rating and at least 100 votes (iirc). Bring it back. If you'd like to keep the current worthwhile section, rename it "Old School YTMNDs" to differentiate it from the 4.0+ worthwhile list.
