The Bore Farewell Party
« on: May 27, 2023, 03:34:30 PM »
What a ride. Been here since 2006 when it first opened. Demi says the site will die at any time.

Here's to Willco.

Methodis being the internets most hated.

Mandark being a lovable smart ass who really just wants the best for you.

Benji...being Benji.

Triumph and his blunt frankness which has always been odd because he was always a sweet guy underneath. I always felt his exterior was a way to not show the world that he was actually kind.

Wrath, who always had the best taste in shit. I'm sure he's doing alright.

Esch, always willing to learn something new and apply it.

Bebpo, for being a guy with a good heart.

Demi for being so lovable.

Joe and Rumbler always been cute and sweet and keeping it real.

Andrex. You're better and smarter and more successful than you think. You were programming and making cool coding stuff even when you were a kid.

Bork for always being a real dude.

Tiesto for his jrpg brotherhood.

Segata for his knowledge and passion.

TEXP for always being genuine, honest, and transparent.  Absolute work horse.

Mupepe.

Idk what to say really. I appreciated this forum's often amusing honesty in comparison to the typical gamut of forums and as a sometimes cool little corner of the net. Not sure I want to mix identities here but will try to keep a note of others' here in case I want to get in touch.

If the site really isn't receiving CPR then I appreciate y'all (well, a lot of you :doge).

Quote
Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you've got
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot
Wouldn't you like to get away?

All those nights when you've got no lights
The check is in the mail
And your little angel
Hung the cat up by it's tail
And your third fiance didn't show

Sometimes you wanna go
Where everybody knows your name
And they're always glad you came
You wanna be where you can see (ah-ah)
Our troubles are all the same (ah-ah)
You wanna be where everybody knows your name

Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee's dead
The morning's looking bright (the morning's looking bright)
And your shrink ran off to Europe
And didn't even write
And your husband wants to be a girl
Be glad there's one place in the world


Where everybody knows your name
And they're always glad you came
You wanna go where people know
People are all the same
You wanna go where everybody knows your name

Where everybody knows your name (where everybody knows your name)
And they're always glad you came
Where everybody knows your name (where everybody knows your name)
And they're always glad you came
Where everybody knows your name (where everybody knows your name)
And they're always glad you came
Where everybody knows your name (where everybody knows your name)

love ya, G rumbler. sorry everyone didn't hate us the way you wanted them too  :-[  none of us are alt-right chuds. just some lads goofing around online together. no hard feelings, breh

I definitely appreciate this site for being able to talk to a bunch of people who don't take shit too seriously and even say some smart stuff every once in a while. Would be sad to see it go.

Maybe we could move over to a discord? Though no clue what kind of work that involves

I have had a good time hanging out here

incredible set of emotes :rejoice

always a weird feeling when a long-standing site dies, so much history that just disappears

the number of posters here has always felt small, but just big enough to sustain itself and be entertaining

dunno what to say, it's probably no great loss in the grand scheme, but feels like a loss all the same

Here's to:

Professor Prole/Drinky Cow/Andrew Vestal for his wit, gallows humor, and always being the surrogate dad to us younglings.

Actual Andrew Vestal being rad.

Rygar for being a cool dude you wouldn't know what was him because he's a lanky tall white dude with glasses so you'll see him and be like,"are you Rygar?" but he's not and you end up disappointed because the real Rygar is dope. Truly the Tony Hawk of the Bore.

Chronovore for his frankness, wonderful share of stories and a long lived life.

Shonuff for being the best poster on The Bore.

Techno Robbie for Meeble Meeble.

Stoney Mason for being a real dad even without kids even though he was impatient.

:hesright

social media is filled with bots or people repeating shit that was fed to them. arguing endlessly over stupid shid like that bike story. people on social media don't like anything that doesn't already have thousands of likes and shares on it. I've never seen something grow organically on there, the popular stuff seems all artificial.

Typed up a 14 page reflection on the death of forum culture. Pre- and Post- internet. Symbolic ego death and rebirth of self in shit posting. How to peacefully resolve the conflict in the Middle East. How current AI forward social media was trained on the old internet; why we see repeating trends, memes, and characters. A rap poem Lin Manuel Miranda helped me write for every single member. Notes of support to keep the forum afloat by the UN as the first digital UNESCO world heritage site. But the site threw up an error and it all got deleted.

So Iíll leave it at this

I was looking for such a forum way before the GAF implosion, but Google would only spit out troll sites. 6 years is probably still longer than this should've been :doge

Hmm, okay, I've looked into it some and am considering setting something up. I may not use SMF as much as part of me wants to.

If the forum goes down completely before I do, I will tweet the URL since Twitter is publicly viewable. benjipwns obviously. And probably post it on bork's thing too. Otherwise I will just post it here.

site still brings plenty of laughs. you just have to not be an uptight piss baby caught up in identity politics. trans people are not right about everything, you are allowed to disagree with them just like anyone else. it isn't genocide to say they have an unfair advantage in competitive sports against natural born women. it isn't transphobic/genocidal if natural born women are uncomfortable sharing locker rooms or restrooms with them. that doesn't mean we want trans people to die or be wiped out.

natural born women are the ones who should be deciding these things for themselves, not anybody else.

the mental healthcare professionals who work with kids struggling with gender identity issues are finding that it's often internalized homophobia that pushes children to claim they are trans. kids don't have everything figured out and providing permanent solutions to temporary confusion is the wrong answer.

Okay, an alt-Bore for unfunny incels is available now: https://thebore.net/forum/

I made a couple example threads just to test things, as people make the threads like "what are you playing?", random talk thread, the movies thread or whatever I'll sticky them or not. The emoticons are in a bit of a mess at the moment as I mass imported, they're all on the server but a number of them I need to go through and match the codes to here for so they aren't available in the pop-up. (Which I'll probably need to edit since it's made for a normal amount of them.) Most other things should work as intended, though I know a few things are missing and I already have some plugins. I installed no themes or anything like that. I'm posting this now in part because I can't test the likes by myself and we all know that's essential. Other features to add/disable/etc. we can discuss over there.

If bork, Joe and demi sign up I'll make them moderators just because even if they don't want to do anything. (I probably should recreate the Icon status just in case anyone ever comes back by accident or out of personal despair.) Anyone else we can discuss down the road.

Yes, I know the newsfeed only shows up on the main page. I looked at the template and it's supposed to be there. I don't have all the newsfeed items I know because the one long one about sleepovers or whatever never turned up for me to copy/paste.

I'm unfortunately not going to be available to refresh constantly out of anxiety for much of today so please don't post too much illegal content or try to crash the server with exploits. And most definitely do not use problematic uncouth language.
