Megadeth - A Tout Le Monde

I am finally out of here!

 

I may come back and see what's happening (and may return if the submissions get less shitty) but I currently don't have a lot of time to contriute (and with the little I do I am still on the first page of the points list, pathetic).

 

bergydickling, fullauto, the other political agenda people and the cowards (socks or others) made the decision easy. I gave it a chance but when you know you can't get into a decent conversation with most but a few and the triggered leftists and rightists dominate the shit on the site. 

 

Get over your fucking selves and return to the spirit of "the old spiked", spill your shit on breitbart and whatever the leftist equivalent is, and submit entertaining stuff on here. You are literally scaring off any newcomers. Triggering you with political shit was fun for a while but I am tired of it now.

 

 

 

I feel sorry for those that put effort into it.

Awe....poor baby.  Don't try to use me as an excuse for your pussy ass taking your ball and going home.  Political agenda my ass, one look at my post history reveals that claim as a fucking lie.  I engage others sure, but if you want to bitch about people with a political "agenda" then I think you might want to point your fucking finger at the users obsessed with hating Trump and blaming all white people for the fact their particular victim group can't get their shit together.

sorry to see you go and I hope you change your mind. I absolutely share your sentiments about the small group of politically hysterical people who have been turning the comments to shit, literally for years now. I'm not sure what the solution is, since downvoting them never had an effect...maybe adding a "politics section" for the submissions or something like that to quarantine the vitriol. Hope you come back!

I also find it becoming more and more of a chore to come to the site.  I've stepped back from commentating but for the most part I find myself responding to FullAutoGal's obvious trolls and ignoring BabyDuckling's spam of the same old tired bullshit I've seen for the past few years now.  I've tried uploading some non-political shit but it instantly gets buried with 2 votes as a bunch of the same old tired political commentary shit heaps on top of it until it's gone.  I'll go and watch a fine video posted 3 days before and my vote will be the 3rd or 4th vote upon the video while there are 30+ videos that have been uploaded after it; how does anything even get to the front page anymore?

 

I'm sure I'll still come around every few weeks like I always do, but Spike has been fairly dead to me for the past year or so.

Well I think you and Daftcunt are leftwing idiots with your heads up your asses, but that doesn't mean you two are bad people or that I hate you.  I too have begun to just ignore BabyDuckling's spam but I always look forward to taking on people like you and Daftcunt in the arena of ideas.

 

I literally come here every day even though my views on various subjects are obviously in the minority.  If anyone has a reason to sulk away it's me.  But I don't sulk away because I'm not bothered by people who disagree with me whereas you two now appear to have the fragile emotions of a teenage girl.

I wish people would start leaving the site because it was too awesome and funny and entertaining and not politcal enough instead. That way the right ones will be leaving.

I've been lurking since the crave days.  I finally created an account to support the latest version of the site but I'm starting to wonder why.  I need more positivity in my life, not the overbearing left vs right bs that seems to be stuck on loop here....

The magic has faded.

I use to enjoy the comment section myself, now it's like an old marriage  and some of the members who took over the social side are not my favorites at stimulating discourse or any lol's.

I agree as well....can't even remember how long i've been coming here...since '07 or '08...i just don't even know anymore. Used to be a better alternative to youtube's suggested videos, and actually interesting/fun/cool stuff.....besides the forge stuff, most is just politics, and I get enough of that crap. Berg is just shitting on the site, and i think that's pulling in fullauto as well. He can be bad, but he also can drop it, he only gets going if something comes up.

^^^ THIS RIGHT HERE.

I think the people leaving are ACTUALLY leaving because they prefer an idological echo chamber, not a free and open forum where people can disagree.  If that's what they want they ought to run over to NeoGAF.  I hear their pretty damn strict about weeding out anyone with opinions to the right of Carl Marx.

There is a certain someone who knows who I'm talking about when I say that I (and he) had a few damn good ideas to keep things fresh while the site had everyones attention when Critikal left. He thought it was best to hold on while danmanjones works out the bugs and I told him all of Dan's hard work would be pointless if people fall back into the shadows and become inactive. We should have struck while the iron was hot, even while Dan was working.

 

Hate to say it but I'm not the least bit surprised and I totally understand how you guys feel.

It's not too late to put those ideas into action. To me, it seems the development has stopped completely.

Is danmanjones the only one working on the site now?

I just want to say that Damjones has done fucking awesome work getting the site back functional and undoing a lot of the bullshit that was put in place when the site first moved.

 

I do have an idea to address the spam complaint.  What if users were limited in the number of vidoes they could post per day.  I don't know what limit that might be, but it would certainly halt people spamming unpopular videos to push an agenda.

And I'm saying that knowing I post a lot of vids, and although I post what I'm sure some here consider "political vids" my beef has and will always be with the media. But a restriction would force people to look for quality and really make a political post count if they feel the need to make one.

You know, we lost a lot of people when Spiked Humor closed down and we are going to lose a lot of people because the original Spiked Nation closed down.

Some people dislike change.

But some new guys will come and fill the gap and I believe things are going to go well for the new Spiked Nation.

If the guys running shit right now stay, that is.

The main problem with the site, as of now and the last days of the original Spiked Nation, is not the assholes, it's the lack of participation.

Videos will get 100 views with only 1 or 2 votes.

10 comment on a video with no votes.

There is only me and Pizzaboi who post images for the galley, yet everybody can't wait for the weekly gallery and it gets over 1000 views.

I mean come on guys, lol.

You want this shit to go well, work on it a bit.

As for the assholes, it was my idea to have the name of the uploader visible on the posted videos.

Specifically for that.

You don't like that asshole, don't click on his videos.

Yes, the lack of votes is disturbing.

Videos on the front page get around 1000-1500 views so there's still a good amount of people visiting this site.  Maybe change it to so you can't see the comments before you vote or something.

Yes, genius - I thought there was going to be a feature where you can't comment unless you rate as well. The vast majority of people who come to Spiked to watch vids do not have accounts - I would say it has to be more than 80%. I'm sure this will make me unpopular but it is a contingent of the membership of Spiked acting as gatekeepers, censors and spammers, and lack of participation from whatever remains, that affect the shape of the content here and likely discourage lurkers from getting accounts and participating actively.

 

There is not a single person here who could honestly deny that something was very consciously and deliberately unleashed on this site in the wake of the election. Since the new site came online Berg and "the rest of us" somehow could no longer operate here. For whatever reason. All that remained was the Duckling's spam which was no longer being aritificially buffed to the front page again and gain, turning off all of the casual and new visitors. Now the Duckling is on hiatus, and we've been able to generate some pretty decent content over the past week or so. The difference is obvious to everyone - I haven't been this optimistic about Spiked in some time.

 

And regarding Daftcunt? Frankly I think this whole Trump Presidency wasn't as laugh-a-minute funny as he thought it would be, and so he's sad. He complains about not being able to have a civil discussion with folks here after my sister and I reached out to have a discussion with him and when we wouldn't agree to his bizarre "discussion terms" he posted rubber chickens all over the site and started having hissy fits every second post. He's just an angry little German guy. He'll be back.

Sorry to see you go man. Don't take political bullshit too seriously. People are too focused to see their own beliefs shaped out of the limited life experience we get. We overvalue the things that happen to us directly. This makes people opinions so biased and worthless I find it hard to take people seriously...

Just a thought:

Remember when m00t started to ban/replace certain stuff in the old chan?

Like niggers into roodypoos, i dunno, a lot of crap that made (at first) almost impossible to post but got kinda better when used to

Well, ban "Trump" or "supporter" or any keyword that is often seen in the spam, and even while Mjornir is gone, the banhammer is immortal. Use it. Use it good. Use it unwisely. Abuse it like you would with my drunk sister. Make a stand. If you dont wanna get dirt in your hands your gonna lose more and more peeps just to stay PC.
