From now till ??????
THIS COMMUNITY IS FROZEN
Or, if you would prefer, a long hiatus.
There will be no new posts (and we'd rather you not leave comments on old posts but obviously we cannot police that) and nobody new can join the community. Remove it from your watch list if you like, as it is highly unlikely this community will start up again.
There are a number of reasons why, some of them more relevant than others:
- The only people posting seem to be annoying, witless morons trying to gain popularity by being rude about others.
- There isn't really anything worth posting (you don't even see the amount of fail posts we reject, they outnumber the approved posts by miles). Which means that this community has done it's job. The amount of people that know of or at least have heard of this place is extreme, and the general feel is that fucks have either learnt what not to do, or have thought twice about posting their images in a public space.
- (Linking in to my first point) I'm disgusted by seeing comments insinuating that the person/people (often referred to as "it") in the images should "die" and similar things. Implying that someone who has just applied some horrible makeup should "kill themselves" makes me wonder how often you leave the house, or switch on the news. I don't know when that level of lack of respect for your fellow human beings became cool, but I don't want any part of it. How pathetic.
- Everything is taken far too seriously by every party involved. Even though this is a slight contradiction as we have had to tighten the rules beyond belief to try to stop people being downright malicious.
Sure, we could tighten the rules even more and start threatening people with bans, but that isn't much fun for us either. It won't help, and we shouldn't have to fucking teach people how to act civilly.
Sure, we could hand over the responsibility to someone else. Someone who probably hasn't been there since the beginning, doesn't understand how things were and who will probably send everything even further downhill.
Sure, we could delete it completely. But someone will make a new one, which will probably fall apart, and I personally don't want this community's already-screwed reputation tarnished even more.
I want the community to stay up, for the lolz, and for an example.
I shall be deleting any post which isn't REAL visual_fucks gold.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did (at least when it was good) and p...p..perhaps... perhaps... one day... we will get infested w..with visual f...f... fucks and... well, this place just might be revived to KICK SOME ARSE. So watch yourself.
