I wrote code in 2010 to ensure the 1000000th YTMND wouldn't be a gif of spongebob accompanied by a loud fart wav. So sue me.

This is my fault, I actually haven't had the time to wipe it yet. If you keep harassing me I'll get to it.

I've thought about it in the past, or some sort of option that makes site posting anonymous for 48 hours or something. I also wanted to put in a system where you could have a bunch of aliases ("alts") and you could just switch between them when you wanted to, without them being an actual separate account.

fond memories of that.

That is an idea I can get behind.

I wonder what percentage of the 999,999 others are garbage.

On on the site ?untitled
Good question.

Set up an entirely new server and upgraded MediaWiki and extensions. Has been up for 36 hours with no problems.

Found the problem, should be good now!

That's actually a good idea for a standalone website. You could riff any URL: Youtube videos, YTMNDs, forum posts, etc. Avatars could be little shadow cutouts.

The wiki is back up. I need to keep an eye on it though.

There is no way I'm ever going to add a "Rip from Youtube" option to the site creator.

Interesting. Maybe a little tool to do live synch testing.

Not currently, but you aren't the first person to ask. I was going to set up site sponsorship with bitcoin at some point using Coinbase.

There are no moderators and really there never have been in any real capacity. When there were moderators they would set sites as NSFW, but beyond that, they didn't have the power to do much.

The problem stems in that anyone who would be a moderator here is also a member. Each member has their own point of view on who is a troll, what constitutes an offense worth taking action for and what should just be shrugged off.

I think one of the fatal flaws of YTMND is the way I built it to be permanent. Once you delete a comment or a user or a site, it's gone for good. For that reason alone I always was afraid to give moderators any real power.

Pointing fingers when you have six different accounts is not really fair. This community has been nothing but a festering boil of childish fights for a long time, and I've never been interested in mediating the fights which is in large part why so many people have left.

Frankly, people who downvote will always be more problematic than people who upvote, because people who downvote cause drama and at worst people who upvote highlight shitty content.

While I know how much contention there is over site design, and how fond of various designs over the years people have been, it's frankly not worth the work. If I'm going to spend 40+ hours on development I'd rather it go to bug fixing and feature-adding or cleanup than adding another theme.

With the last major update I made a templating system that would theoretically allow a user to choose a specific theme, and I had the intention at one point of backporting themes, but it never became a priority.

Another issue is that when I change/fix/add/remove something, I'd have to do it in every theme, multiplying my work. I'd be pleased to give people both the current templates, and say, the templates from 5 years ago and they can try to port them over, but

I added a cookie thing, so it should be okay now.

Special editions are now sold out. Too bad I never wrote in the ability to edit comments.

Also, I'll be shutting the store down soon. The current stock counts are as follows:

Small - 30 ($12)
Medium - 12 ($16)
Extra Large - 30 ($16)
Special edition XXL - 1 ($30)

If you've ever wanted one (or some stickers) hurry up and buy one because soon I'm going to start burning the leftovers to keep warm.

For those that didn't notice, I fixed this by hiding the facebook junk until you open the info bar. I also changed how Flash was hidden due to Chrome introducing a weird bug. Let me know if you see any issues.

Also, big news on shirts: the printer found another box of shirts and says they are mostly XXL classics. Once I get them and have exact counts, I will update and put them on the store.

Fatties rejoice.

That's actually a bit bigger than the small flat rate box, but I guess USPS doesn't care that much because they let me use the same postage.
