I'd accuse someone of giving n00bs a bad name...but then, "n00b" is already a bad name.

Hi, I'm a n00b.

Okay Jier, as you're a newbie here's a little bit of forum history which I hope will help put this BB's particular subculture into perspective.

Firstly in web terms as a community we're old, downright ancient infact - this BB has been going for over four years straight (with many of it's original members) now and most of us older members were in a similar forum hosted by keen* together too (some for a couple of years I gather, I was a newbie in the keen* forums when the jump was made). Now at the time the keen* forums we're having major reliability problems, to the point where for the most part it was unusable and so kyhm kindly offered to host an unofficial forum, Poe gave it his blessing and the rest is history. Initially there were two forums - The Bulletin Board forum for news related to the BB & the EN forum, these were soon followed by the Unrelated and RP forums (at least, as I recall). Everything else, all the other comics etc were added one by one after these four basic categorys.

The thing you have to understand is that most of the original members joined to discuss Exploitation Now - a comic strip for adults that at least initially was based around in no small part sexual jokes/innuendo and violence in equal measures (not that that's a bad thing, quite the contrary infact). Naturally, because of this the early members were generally perverts who like explosions and random violence, now as a method to try to keep this mood (subconciously I presume) the idea of the initiation came into being - the idea seeming to be that if a newbie can take the frankly asinine description of these acts in good humour then there's a good chance that they'll fit it. Something of a KIBO filter for people if you will.

The problem stems from the fact that EN is long dead now and many new comics have come and gone, all contributing users to the community as a whole such that the dynamic has changed significantly. When we have users who come to discuss comics like the midlands or ES they don't want and should not be subjected to the crass treatment that was acceptable when the forums sole purpose was to discuss EN, but some of the older members are perhaps reluctant to see the last remanents of 'the good old days' dissapear, even if within the contempory community such shenanigans are no longer appropriate.

I guess what i'm trying to say, in a round-about and overly verbose way, is that sure we've got some traditions and 'in-jokes' that will seem very odd as an outsider looking in, but then as a community we've existed in one form or another for damn near half the time the web has existed. Although we do have some baggage thanks to the age of the community (much like usenet) I think that our communal longevity speaks volumes about the social bonds between members.

This bugged me too. I was wondering if those two would hook up or are just really good friends. I know I wouldn't switch states so easily for someone else. Note the ff. strips. They kinda hint at something...



Please do not direct or hotlink images on my site. Link to their pages in the archive.


apologies. don't hit forums that often. forgive my lack of etiquette

If kyhm forums ever makes it to wikipedia as an entry (which it almost certainly won't, but anyway) that's the kind of description I want to see for it.

Yeah, I knew about that...I even *MENTIONED* the bandwidth issue in my post like...3 posts ago, but I figure hosting them on photobucket acting like DURR I INVENTED DAVAN would somehow come to bite me in the ass too...and figured if someone could say how to do a nice easy not get my ass sued copyright thing, that that would be something I could benefit from...

And they want me there, and I'm not one to look good in nothing but a set of ears, so I'd wear a pokemon shirt and try not to look too disgruntled :) but to the 'warrior' friend I keep "JOKINGLY" (except not jokingly) showing her the "for every girl who looks like this, theres 10 who look like this" comic and she thinks its funny... but does not take it as a warning sign for all of humanity.

Course be fearful, he does require a sacrifice of small kittens every forth lunar cycle after the harvest moon while fan girls dress as harpies and have forbidding sexual orgies with the trees.


Perhaps you mean forbidden? I don't find fan girls dressed as harpies very scarey.

it gets scary when they are not reallu girls...but 350 lbs men who are 4'2 and pretend to be little girls online so someone will actually talk to them.
and then they wear these little skimpy sailor moon outfits and permanently damage the retinas of the recipient.

I like 'comics' more than I like 'manga' so...it's hard for me right now and somehow a step backwards in my social life, see kids... when you stop drinking, you find yourself being invited to anime conventions and renaissance faires... I'm not even kidding... So, we'll see how that goes... :lol: so awkward.

I like Randy's pics of "sailorbubba" if thats what we're calling it...
I'll find it and then half assed link it

okay sooooooooo..
go to somethingpositive dot net
go under "STUFF"
go under "FILLER COMICS"
CLICK: march 29th 2004
*wait for page to load*
and giggle...or scratch out your eyes...either way is good.

Ever watch Fargo? You just have to smash it up enough. It is similar to a woodchipper.
