I know I will probably get thumbed down to hell by saying this, but I disagree with you. Funnyjunk hasn't started to mature. The community just has bipolar. One day you can get +200 for a comment, another day the same comment will get -50. eg, an Anti-Justin Bieber pic may get +2000 thumbs one day, but the same content could get thumbed down with everyone saying "OMG BEETING A DED HORZE!!!!"
Please dont hate me

We've dropped the rage-comics and overused memes in favour of our own self-created memes. We also see a lot of good advice (e.g. this content) and interesting scientific posts making it to the front page these days.
Though some of the community still argues like children whenever Religion or Guns or Ponies are called into question the number has really gone down recently and people seem to be more ready to accept other people's views and call-out those who don't.
If shit keeps on like this we'll have a fucking utopia on our hands sooner or later.

Aye. But it shows a form of autonomy that isn't extant on other sites. The newer sites tend to struggle to find themselves and their identity. For FJ the identity doesn't lie in the content, but in the comments. The content is never as funny as the comments section but the comments section can sometimes be home to some really interesting debates, like this one.
4Chan is very much about the OP. OP is where all the comedy comes from, either that or it's somebody mocking OP. Either way, 4Chan never really leaves a lasting impression on you the way the conversations in the FJ comments does. Reddit is a better place in terms of how helpful and friendly the community is (as evidenced by how many good things happen in real life that are organised there.)
FJ kinda sits in the middleground. It's not as funny or influential as 4Chan nor is it as helpful as Reddit, but the blend of the two work well enough to create a unique community.
Then there's 9Gag... which thinks it's 4Chan but is really lower than Facebook. Funny how the hierarchy of websites goes, huh?

I think it's because of the culture that is being promoted recently on FunnyJunk. We went through a few very distinct troubles on the site recently. We had the Obama v Romney issue, Guns, Bronies, Religion's been a constant, Homosexuality and gay marriage. All of these hot debates got the community so freaking steamed that they eventually began either getting tired of arguing pointlessly or they stepped up the game of their arguments.
People got called out for setting out base arguments because the community'd seen so much of them in a short period of time and they just seemed to come one after another, now the community tries to head them off at the pass. Now, even though FJ remains split on many issues, the issues seem to either accepted or just retaliated against fairly passively with red thumbs.
We've also seen a big decline in the number of trolls that use the site. Yeah, there's one or two here and there but I don't come across them nearly as frequently as I used to. They seemed to disappear some time after the advent of 9Gag but that could simply be coincidence.
What's more, it has given rise to a term I've never heard anywhere else but seems to have become a favourite on this site. "Psuedo-Intellectual". Because arguments now tend to be fairly well-reasoned a new kind of insult has come up. 'PS' is basically a way of calling people out as pretending they're intelligent as opposed to actually being intelligent. The truth is that I've never seen this phrase applied in a place where I felt it was deserved so (though I hate to generalise) I feel it is likely the replacement for calling people you disagree with idiots.
You can't call them idiots anymore because a lot of the time they're not, but you can call into question the nature of their intelligence. Either way, it's pretty clear that FJ has seen a big shift in the maturity of it's userbase recentlu and I feel it's for the better. I just hope we don't become too soft.. but with DJ 4DM1N around I doubt that.

I get mentioned quite a lot in accidental posts.
Occasionally, I read one or two, just out of curiosity.
I must say, snowshark, I'm glad I read yours.
This thread just made me like this thread so much more. I mean, if FJ had made an advice board a few years ago, it would have been FULL of dicks trolling it...
But I suppose we all just got used to it and the trolls got bored.
Because now there is an actual functioning Advice board. A place on fucking funnyjunk where people can get help. thats just...

You see, what the internet does that is completely unheard of in the entirety of human history is put you and me in connection with each other. More than that, but it connects every single human being to every other one, so long as they have a terminal through which they can access is. (Terminals which are becoming more prevalent even in the least developed parts of the world.)
Think of all the change that came about in the 20th century because of the increased ease of spreading messages. Equal rights for women and blacks. Now equal rights for gays. Because people can connect to other people, they do not feel alone. In fact, the lay-men feel more powerful than they ever have before.
Look at Anonymous. A group of (by definition) nobodies who get together to fight (and there is no doubt that they fight) for the beliefs they believe to be right. Beliefs such as freedom and truth. Beliefs that were previously set-down by the forefathers of the US and echoed by every half-decent rights-movement since then.
The internet connects people. How does this apply to FJ? Well, because people have been connected as though they were neighbors, nay, housemates. You and I are chatting as though over our garden fences. Because of that, the tides of change that affect a few of us affect all of us.
People have grown up and matured over time but remained with FJ. Their increased maturity has bled down to those beneath. They remember how things were and how it was like to be immature and are grateful of their maturity, hence they share it with their family; i.e. FJ.
FJ is a family. Affected by the change in the outside world but empathetic to each other. Ready to razz and forgive and aid and comfort in equal measure all under the FJ banner of good-will.
The internet is bringing about a change in the world through connection. Soon it may even change the way governments work, because what relies on connections more than democracy?
#275 - likely (06/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, I do like talking to my housemates over the fence.
but yeah. It'll be interesting to see where FJ goes in the future.
If we keep getting MORE mature, eventually we'll be a philosophical debate site...
But it is nice to know that we're no longer such faggots. I mean, we're still all faggots, but not as bad...
#269 - snowshark (06/05/2013) [-]
"Shut the fuck up you pseudo-intellectual faggot." It would be used as a prefix to the core insult like that.
It's like calling someone out for not knowing their shit but pretending they do. Honestly I'm not sure where it came from or why it's in use and really I can only make guesses as to the where and why.
