  1. Wow the today's birthdays are such a reminder of how long this place has been around. Those were always like (*teen years old) before. At least I don't feel quite as ancient now. 

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      where HAVE you BEEN

    2. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      I've spent the last couple years modding a Blinx the Cat forum.....a lot less work. 

    3. Indigo Rush
  2. I just read through the old Zombie Tag forum game thread, and it brought back such fun memories. Everyday I was reading stories about people's strategies and how they all wanted to bite Nep. It makes me miss running forum activities........a very itty bitty tiny bit

  3.  Can anyone look back at their way old posts without cringing? I could be reading something and think 'wow what an intelligent and well thought out post' and then as soon as I notice it was I who posted it's like 'uhhhhg I'm such an idiot WHHHHY'

    1. Rey Skywalker-Ren

      Rey Skywalker-Ren

      i can't. my past posts are the reason why i am the intelligent person you see today

    2. Osmium


      Most of my older posts and statuses, yes. That's how I feel about all of my older work, it's a never ending cycle. You think your older stuff is shit while your new stuff is better, than in a few years time you'll look back to what is new now and think "...uhhhh".

    3. TheOcelot


      Can't even look at my current posts without cringing.

    4. Wraith


      I legit had a moment where I was looking through an old topic and I saw a post that made me go "what fucking idiot wrote this?" and it was mine

    5. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      Ahhhh @BenderTheBatman loool that is so perfect....and true!

      @Wraith That made me laugh. Seriously if not for the 2008 server wipe I would probably have to change my real name considering what posts it would be associated with....

    6. Briraka


      Looking back at how upset you were at other Sonic fans' opinions is always cringe-y.

    7. Kiah


      I definitely look at my old posts and cringe assuming I can actually look at them which doesn't last very long.

      All the more cringeworthy considering I was 28 at the time as the SSMB was the first forum I joined so it's not like I have a lengthy posting history.

    8. Osmium


      There should be "I do cringe" after the yes on my first sentence. Jesus, see there's an example of me cringing at myself in the present right there!

    9. Nepenthe


      That's the secret.

      Never look at your old posts.

    10. Rey Skywalker-Ren

      Rey Skywalker-Ren

      my old threads were so horrible D:

    11. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      But if I don't just endlessly look at my old posts then I'll actually have to make new ones @Nepenthe

      and no one wants that

    12. Nepenthe


      On the contrary, I think we all want that.


    13. RosaRosaRosalina


      honestly? no

      i already cringe enough at my present self so

    14. nintega137


      Yes. Yes YES YES YES YES! I mean including all the old threads and topics I've made, and often how poorly researched and haphazardly I tended to just use links. I feel like such an idiot in hindsight. Not to mention I was new to being social on a forum at the time and while it's not great now, it really showed back then. It just makes me think "wow, I can't believe people use to put up with me then".  

  4. Reading about how some people dislike the like system on here reminds me of when user profiles had stars. Like instead of content, you could just rate character of a person. "Oh sorry Sean I think you're only 2 stars, no offense its just you as a person that's awful"

    1. Rey Skywalker-Ren

      Rey Skywalker-Ren

      thank god we don't have that anymore haha

    2. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      I was only 4 stars ;_;

    3. Rey Skywalker-Ren
    4. Pelly <3's U
    5. N000


      Oh I remember the days of the star system! It always did seem like an odd thing to have. So says me and my two stars.

    6. Osmium


      I was 3 stars like half the time. YAY BEING AVERAGE 

    7. Wraith


      Going from 2 stars to 4 stars was a joruney

    8. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      I went from 5 to 4, and its all been downhill since then

      I didnt even think it was weird at the time, the internet is sure a different place than it was when I was a wee one

    9. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Whoa...I literally don't remember that at all, but if ShroomZ remembers it I must have been around when they were around?? I guess I just wasn't paying attention...either way it sounds super weird. I can sorta understand why they thought it could be a good idea at the time though.

    10. Rey Skywalker-Ren

      Rey Skywalker-Ren

      you could definatly tell who was liked and who wasnt haha

    11. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      I believe it was implemented for a short time during an IPboard upgrade in the last couple years, but I'm more referring to around pre-2008 or so. Like I said i didn't even see it as weird, forums just had a different feel back then. 

      I was still bummed when I lost a star though >: (

    12. TheOcelot


      I had 4 stars :wub:

    13. Rey Skywalker-Ren

      Rey Skywalker-Ren

      whats wrong with being above average? :)

    14. Osmium


      @Monkey Destruction Switch the star system was removed in the board upgrade in July of last year. You were definitely here long enough to have seen them, you probably just did not notice them.

  5. I for one can't wait to see it. Based off the trailers I wasn't really expecting original ghost busters (of which I love) but I expected it to be decently funny and entertaining enough and it seems to be. Its reception is pretty similar to most summer blockbusters I can think of so no problems there. I like all the actors in their own right and I won't lie when I say I was excited for an all female team, though I would have seen it anyways. I'll probably go tonight so heres hoping I like it.
  6. I never thought we'd reach a point on the SSMB when the ages of people on the Today's Birthday would make me feel this old. SSMB you stole my life and left me out to dry D:

    1. Chris


      She's alive!!

    8. Kiah


      No more nonsense from you young lady! We won't be so nice next time! :P

  8. You seem to lack a very basic grasp on sociological theories such as power and privilege, social stratification, and contemporary social justice theory. I would think it should be fairly easy to educate yourself on the reasons why there is a taboo against an oppressive group using extremely derogatory racial slurs against an oppressed group. I would maybe start there and then start looking into aspects of these theories before being able to proclaim "think about it and you'll realize what I'm saying is true" whilst having an extremely simplistic view on the issues. That being said this isn't the 'why can't I say this word topic' and if you want to find arguments for exactly why people do believe that race plays into how cops interact with people of color (besides you know, evidence pointing out that unconscious racial biases affect nearly every part of our interactions) than I would suggest reading the full topic.
  9. Is there anyway to search status updates anymore? Also it confuses me that everyone is complaining that they don't like the site now because of the white? Like, I can barely think of a major site that I use all the time that isn't white. White is the future yo' Also I don't think 'genuine post counts' is really a valid complaint on a site that's had multiple wipes affect things....but maybe I just like seeing ridiculously high numbers that make everyone look like nerds :B
  10. It also took me like 20 minutes to learn how to log into the forums D:

      Aaron Webber's meme machine blew up, fatally wounding the SSMB and forcing it to regenerate.

  12. Speaking of animated movies I just watched, I also just saw The Lego Movie and thought it was really good. I'm sure this status will shock most of you as I'm obviously the first person to express this opinion of it.

    1. Ferno


      I still haven't seen it

      I plan on getting the bluray though

      ..forgive me for I have sinned

    2. TCB
    3. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      (spoilers) The only part I didn't like so much was the emphasis on live action at the end. I didn't inherently hate it but I thought it took up too much time and was so jarring compared to the rest of the movies tone.

  13. Watched The Book of Life god that was sooooo good, how did that movie not get more hype?

    1. Felix


      I found it numbingly mediocre if you asked me, lol

    2. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      It wasn't a flawless masterpiece by any means but I think it is miles ahead of most recent animated films I've seen, especially design wise

    3. Felix


      The animation and art direction were really, really fantastic. It's just that the characters are were so flat and the plot was predictable as hell. I don't care how pretty a movie is, if the story and characters aren't there to hold up the film, then it's just not good.

    4. JezMM


      Yeah I felt the same as Felix about it. There actually was a lot of cult hype for it which is why I went to see it, but in the end it lived up to my mediocre reaction to the trailers

    5. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      I haven't seen it yet, I might in the future, if only for the animation. The trailers made it look enjoyable enough...

      Well, except for the Biz Markie song. That part was kinda cringeworthy.

    6. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      I thought it was interesting in other regards. I tend to enjoy films that try and do a take on other cultures and mythology (even if fairly loosely), and I also appreciated how much complexity they tried to bring to the plot (though in the end I think it was somewhat detrimental to the movie overall as it couldn't hold it all together). The characters and plot were what I would consider on par with an average film so they didn't drag it down too much for me while other aspects soared.

    7. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      @Robrainiac - yeah it is one of those movies that uses modern songs, which while I found it kinda charming in this movie I admit is a recipe for cringe often

    8. Felix


      The film definitely gets points for taking such a great look at Mexican culture, and it definitely was a love labor on the director's part. I just wish the plot was just as interesting as the visuals.

    9. Sean


      "I don't care how pretty a movie is, if the story and characters aren't there to hold up the film, then it's just not good."

      A movie is more than the sum of its parts and these are not the sole determinators of a movie's worth. Do you really think that everything else about the movie is worth dismissing just because story and writing are suddenly the end-all determinators of whether a movie is good or not?

      Like, you like Speed Racer which arguably...

    10. Sean


      ...is just as shallow if not moreso, it's all spectacle but no story/character weight whatsoever.

    11. Strickerx5


      I went into not really expecting much and was greatly surprised in most regards. While I think the plot and most of the character were underwhelming, it did make up points at the end for creativity, animation, and the character that were actually fun to watch.

    12. JezMM


      My main issue was that at times the action seemed to be against the movie's overt, intended themes (love conquers all but... here prove it by completing this test where you run away from a boulder in a maze), the movie literally didn't make me laugh once, and every time the plot got vaguely heavy they broke the mood by cutting back to the totally unnecessary framing of the kids at the museum woo-ing and ahh-ing over the story which just made it all the more awkward because I wasn'...

    13. JezMM


      wasn't. The visuals were like, beyond 10/10, but they were the only thing I enjoyed and it wasn't enough.

    14. Felix


      You make a point, and it's not like I HATE the movie or anything. It's creatively a marvel and the intricate amount of detail put into the movie is worthy of admiration in of itself, it just didn't really pull me in.

    15. Felix


      And what Jez said. I'd also like to add I don't like Speed Racer just for the visuals. Despite the film being too long along with some awkward tonal shifts, I enjoyed the characters and liked the optimistic and honest theme of family behind it all. That, and it's /Speed Racer/, it's unfair tor really pit a criticism like there being no story or character wright that against a franchise such as that.

    16. Pelly <3's U

      Pelly <3's U

      I actually liked the kids/narration part (mainly if only because I loved the Mexico as the center of the universe joke) but I can understand why it would be like it/leave it. I do wish the movie would have focused more of the 'conflict' around the themes of the characters bashing against their family's expectations/reputations vs bullfighting and bandits are bad

    17. JezMM


      ^ Definitely agree with that last point. It seems like such a wasted opportunity that they could have done something very original in a family movie here but instead played it safe in every regard other than the visuals, basically.

  14. I love grinding, but I also grew up somewhat on games such as text based adventure ones (push the toilet!? How was I supposed to know I needed to push the /fucking/ toilet to get the secret entrance to the whorehouse) and olllld school RPGs (think getting out graph paper to map and looking up what every weapon/enemy/item/spell does in a separate manual). I guess it made me kind of a sucker for tedious, unrewarding, and worklike aspects of games. Even now I love simulation games where I need a separate excel spreadsheet and a business plan to make sure I don't go under and beads of sweat drop down my face as I'm having a panic attack about paying bills. I actually think grinding is a somewhat dated mechanic and probably not very relevant in todays modern setting, but I have a soft spot in my heart for monotonous drudgery that makes gaming more like work! Edit: Actually I thought of something I hate which is when games put an artificial cap on your ability to grind such as 'ohh you need to reach this story point to unlock the ability to use this power' Motherfucker, if I want to spend 60 hours grinding my characters up for no reason I should be able to steamroll through the game like a boss as a reward.
  15. Does anyone use spotify and like it? I'm thinking about getting it because it's so easy to find songs but paying for music!?!?

  16. I was so worried with the forum being reset that I'd come back here and be staff again.......talk about a nightmare

  17. I miss not being able to see who is browsing anon, so I could laugh at the people making dramatic 'GOODBYE FOREVER' statuses and watch them browse the forum anonymously for weeks

      the retired staff should just have all the fun features like that still

  18. I have friends that won't say things like "that's insane" because it's insensitive to people with mental health issues or "that's lame" because it's insensitive to disabled people. It really makes you see how much of our language is rooted in insulting anyone outside of the norm.

    1. Yoko/葉子


      You bring up a very good point, it's almost like the English language has a superiority complex. As odd as it sounds.

      It is weird not seeing that Pelly's group banner around. Could it not just be changed to be non-mod, and then you could be back in it?
