My point of View

***EDIT*** this is the last hour you'll notice this, so please read this: im not trying to cause a whole bunch of controversy or make us another 4chan, alright? i can only hope this rant blows over, because like i said: I JUST WANTED THE CONCEPT OUT THERE.

before i start this rant, just keep in mind
going to slap my self a bunch after this for
ranting.
so iwas on fl
today and
saw this...
This is vow common ' er. they thumb up
everything that has to " with hating V " I trt
Bieber even when its not funny. They are q
jump on " banda {on and ml
that’ don' t know about. I don "
hink. l don' t like Twilig r Bieber But those
are getting p e out and MM Iwill keep
it real you better believe it.
it It
Funnyjunk needs more free thinkers
who (11. t give a **** what people think.
Even if its not what people wanna hear.
let me start by
saying i don' t
dissaray with
this. he' s 100%
right. funnyjunk
whould be a
hell of a lot
better if people
didn' t care
about others'
opinions.
but the reason
we dont have
people like this is
the god damn
thumb system,
and you all know
for a FACT you' d
say a whole lot
more **** if you
didn' t have ranks
other related
thins to worry
about.
the only people who
dont have to worry
about these thins are
anons, and we hate
them for that very
reason. you think they
give a rats ass on your
opinion? of course
not. they don' t need to
kiss the ass of every
er in fear of being
ridiculed otherwise.
why the hell do you
think we take so many
ychan threads?
they' re ******
hilarious. (most of
them.) know why? it' s
all anons not giving Co;
two ***** on the .fyw
others' opinion. that' s
how they turn out so
awe inspirited epic.
what am i getting at?
asking the need for the thumb
system. all it does is cause
reposts and the same
recycled meme **** and
beiber haters that had its
moment, but should be long
one by now. not to say we
need to get rid of rating in
general, because thats what
people do. we compare
thins, it' s a natural instinct.
but why cant we just have a 5
star rate technique and axe
the levels? do you really need
levels? at the end of the day if
you' re not a super high one
you just end up feeling the
need for more thumbs,
therefore only contributin to
the original problem.
so here' s my conclusion:
get rid of thumb this
to avoid thumbwhores however the
and more followers. keep Pl you want.
a top rated page, but just . andet! P
have the ratings not help get this out m
the poster in any way, the open.
basically. kind of like
youtube without the
subscribers. and stop
insulting the anons. (the
non troll ones, at least.)
they built the internet in
the first place.

alot of people are posting things like DSend sucks and they are just putting it up purely for thumbs. i dont give two ***** if you thumb this down, i think DSend is hilarious. Alot of funnyjunk agrees with me, otherwise he wouldnt be popular in the first place. You are really ******* hypocritical. You all say you hate him, then when he posts a comic, it gets front page immediately and every comment is saying how funny it is, then the next day, those very same people upload pictures saying how much they hate Dsend so they can get thumbs for agreeing with the popular opinion. If you really and truly hate DSends comics, be mature and click the next button and dont be a douche about it.

In my point of view, however, its not the thumbs fault. I mean, you're only talking about the **** that constantly gets to the front page, but sure, maybe wanting thumbs made whoever post it, but why did people thumb it? Because they are stupid. PEOPLE! THE THUMBS WORK IF YOU JUST TREAT THEM LIKE THEY SHOULD BE TREATED WITH FUNNY AND NOT FUNNY! I know that you'll thumb this down saying "Oh, its not MY fault, the thing had 500 thumbs up! 1 thumb down wouldn't have mattered..." Well, say 400 other people thought that? BOOM! It would have been off the front page, still 100 thumbs up, but it would be a start.

**** getting rid of levels. we should just get rid of all accounts completely and just be anonymous. because as long as there are members there are thumb whores. there are no thumb whores in the world of anon, because there is no reason to. and this site will be so much more simpler with just anons because there will be no inside jokes about members that no new people (which this site NEEDS) will understand.
i dont even care about being 1 anymore, i just want the funny back in funnyjunk.

This is a bad idea. The ranks are a sort of reward for when you post funny things. I'm trying to get to the divider of zero rank, myself. Without the ranks, the motivation would kind of poof for a lot of people.
Plus, a TON of funny content sites have a 5 star rating scale-type thing, but I think the thumbs are almostkindanotreally unique to FJ.
Instead of saying, '10 thumbs for moar' will we be saying, '10 stars for moar'? I sure hope not, because that sounds kind of gay.
This is my own opinion...feel free to reply with disagreements or anyone who feels the same way I do.
User avatar #366 to #361 - Wumbologist (07/11/2010) [-]
No, see, the ranks reward people that get thumbs, not those that are funny. You know about all the unfunny stuff that gets to the front page. And, people shouldn't be saying "10 thumbs for more" in the first place, I personally think it's thumbwhoring, simply make more if people like it. If you disagree with me, don't thumb me down, but instead comment.

the 5 star system would be a bad idea because most people would rate either 1 or 5 stars but nowhere in between. That's why youtube ditched it and moved on to the thumb system, which actually is the best way. on long days, i would look at the top photos then start going right further and further, but the further right you go, the less funny they get, although there are a few diamonds in the rough. But the point is, you don't want all the pictures to be together. If you think about it, everything is fine just the way it is.
#514 - slightlyterrible **User deleted account** (07/11/2010) [+] (1 reply)
people will still hate on this.
i dont care one way or another if the thumb system is removed as long as funny content is still being posted.

If its too much reading for anyone.

Basicaly he wants no ranks and everyone to be anons. Not a bad idea.
User avatar #51 - airguitar (07/11/2010) [+] (2 replies)
It simply wont happen, the reason being they spent a long time building up the system and rankings,knowing you can't change the system next time - BE FUNNY, because THAT is how you fix the site.

I liked one of Justin Bieber's songs! That's right, I said it...

BEFORE THE THUMBS DOWN RAPE, let me explain myself.
I thought it was sung by girl (Justin can be a girls name), and I liked the beat.
Until later I found out it's some 14yr boy singing about love which ****** pissed me off... a kid his age has no clue about that **** , so now I can't listen to it any more (-.-)

Can I ask, why does stuff like this get to the top and then nobody does anything about it? It's like saying, "Hey, that's a great idea! Go away!"
#598 - Phark **User deleted account** (07/11/2010) [-]
Ah, the irony.
I'm probably gonna get thumbed down.
Ah, the irony. AGAIN.
User avatar #563 - ChuckNorrisSon (07/11/2010) [-]
ok i will speak my mind...i prefer jacob because i think i werewolf is cooler than a vampire anyways, i still hate justin bieber with a passion, and i think incest is anything other than "wincest" that **** is just nasty and you know it.
