Need I say more?

And before any of you blame it on the administration, keep in mind that it wasn't the rampant pornography that kept it afloat back in 2002 (an era I've seen some of you maintain was the "golden age" of OT). WTF is the fascination with having pornography on NF? The Mofo forum has really gone downhill since you guys decided to turn it into a big circle jerk.

I lay the blame on the fact that the collective OT IQ has dropped significantly. Instead of the community feel OT used to have, now it's all about who can post the stupidest shit. FCS, Coco, OPIUM, etc. didn't leave because of the rules or other moderators. They left because they got tired of the childish bullshit. The only reason I haven't left is I'm supposed to run the damn place.

Here's what you see in OT today:
  • Inane & pointless posts. Example:
    Ksilvia8 said:
    i will fuck u in the asshole
  • Pointless bumping of old threads.
  • Constant whining, complaining, & bitching about everything & anything: too many stickies, the rules are too harsh, the mods are "Nazis," etc.
  • Insulting & belittling of other members, whether new or different.
  • A basic lack of commonsense and tastefulness.
  • An undeserved entitlement attitude.
  • Lame (actually, incredibly lame) "ownage"
  • Very negative attitudes about everything

I'm sure some of you will probably disagree and have your own reasons, but I'd look in the mirror first.

I'm well aware I posted this in the Mofo section. I'm not stating that any of you are to blame, but I posted it here because you guys represent a majority of the regulars and supposedly are here to improve the quality of OT.

The biggest reason I think you have omitted (you mentioned it the result, but not the reason) is that the larger this forum gets, the more and more members we get in OT. And seeing as how the vast majority of new members are 15-18yo and don't know shit about shit, it brings down the community feel that you mentioned. With the loss of Ruben, Coco, NP, Opi, FCS, Adam, and you (to some extent) it makes it tough to compete with the stupidity of people these days. That being said, we as Mofo, aren't living up to our end of the bargain. Even a bunch of our guys are hit and miss these days. Lethal, Koop, Spelch. We just are't spending as much time online as we used to.

I agree with everything you guys just said. But in actuality it just comes down to the fact like Mark said that we all have lives and choose to live them. OT definitely has become boring but it is because, like Scott said, of the the fact that people complain too much about everybody else. If everyone focused more on their own opinions as opposed to someone else's then everyone would be a lot happier and more people would stick around.

This is just a suggestion, but why dont we just suspend O.T. for a week, hell maybe a month. That way people would appreiciate what we have now. The problem is they think ot is a right, not a perk. Maybe if they knew what life was like with out it, they would enjoy it a lot more if we bring it back.

Either that or, Us as a collective MOFO seriously need to bring teh funny, like its never been braughten before.....lol
What also sucks is that other mods have been dumping there crap into O.T. We have enough stupididty to deal with around here with out having everybody elses trash.

I know I've been scarce lately, but I've been simply way too busy as of late to spend much time online at all. As far as fixing OT goes, I believe it can be done, but don't really know how to go aboot it... I was thinking about having an MSPAINT contest for the "most inane drawing", where the winner gets to "go fuck themself", but haven't really gotten around to it yet. It's kind of lame, I know, but I've also come to terms with the fact that we've posted most of the entire internet to date, so finding new / funny material becomes difficult at a point. I also think that some of the shit we've come up with on the forum far outdoes the redunant bullshit that floods the web regularily, and in the past, these shitty ideas have turned into something wicked.

I don't think the lack of pr0n in OT has contributed to its disdain, I think it's really the fact that nobody's feet have been held to the fire lately, and so we're sliding down a hill of shit. I also concur with Mark's statement, about the decline of IQ in OT over time. In some instances, I wish there were a device I could use to stab people in the face via the internet.

All that said, I think we could make OT kick again if we started posting new ideas in the MoFo section like "mad". Of course some of them will be pretty dumb, but with constructive input we could probably come up with some good shit, eventually posting the "projects" in the main OT forum. This would be time consuming though...

Feel free to hit me back on any of this. My new e-mail (courtesy of Blank, thank you sir) is garbagemustardface(at)gmail.com.

There are alot of things to contribute to the decline of OT quality. Everything you guys said is pretty well true and lately. Ive been slipping in bringing Teh Funnay to OT. I usually only post stuff that I really think would stand out. Not just random stuff I stumble upon. Like that shredder, thats pretty friggin cool.
As for the porn. I really could care less. I have my sources and NF isnt really one. I dont come here for the pron, I come here cuz I like (some) of the people here. Mostly the rest of you Mofos and a few nons. Its kinda like Cheers
But as previously mentioned, there are alot of dumbass children on here that try to do nothing but bitch and complain and try to start something.
Perhaps a ban from OT if they pull that junk. 3-strikes maybe?
The rebirth of OT is something that needs to be thought out and discussed in depth.

well it has and the only time i complained was when fucking a fat bitch thread wich was funny and had no pron but had messed up language in the title was deleted. but Im over it.
but also ot was great because a collaberation of many of the o.gs that were here when i joined the forums. with the pop vs soda shit.

I really dont know what we can do about it I think its just the evolution of OT. And Ot

I havent been living up as well, i work 40 hours a week now and take 16 hours of class. So i rarely have time for anything. But i agree that the collective IQ of OT has dropped signifigantly.

I think that as mofo we should purge OT of all who are un worthy, while remaining fair to an extent. Per say, let them join the group, give them lethal's 3 strikes and then we vote on who stays and who goes. That way we play a bigger part in OT, and can control teh funnay like we used to.

I dunno, thats the best I can think of.

I can never get true feedback because Someone rates all my threads with 1 star but I like to believe that I do in fact bring the funny, entertaining, and somewhat clean material to OT. For instance, there is absoluetly nothing wrong with a post like the "WooWoo" on that I just posted; afterall, we ARE men. (atleast most of us are and that doesn't include princess). Bottom line is things change, maybe we're just in a little rut right now, OT can't always be overflowing with greatness. Maybe it isn't the new crowd that has stunk up the place, maybe some of those from the OG crowd who think things are so bad are just spoiled. I think alot of the younger crowd end up coming here to and feel like they can do/say anything and that makes them feel good. I'd probably go on but I have to shit really bad..

Some asshole has rated every thread with 1 star (cough cough rafik?). OT is fine and good and fun.

YES! the court shall arise from the ashes of OT
I think what happened before is that the court just appeared at the wrong time. Not enough jackasses running around doing stupid siht. Now we got plenty to play with. And we have a much better punishment. "Teh ban from OT" that should set alot of them straight.

Wow reading Scott's post makes me feel like I single handedly ruined OT. But as far as bringing the funny, my hands have been tied so many times Ive lost the enthusiasm of finding good shit to post. The plus the fact that I got a promotion at work and I have been incredibly busy for the past year and I don't really post at home. Well I hope there is a resurgance of OT for you guys, maybe if I get fired I'll ask for a job from Scott and my only responsibitlity would bring all of the funny from the whole internet to OT. My asking starting salary is $90,000.
