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.

Well, you're right. It was fun while it lasted.

I'll miss seeing some really funny visual fucks indeed, but I've noticed that lack of tolerance for fellow human beings you mentioned as well.... Maybe it's better this way.... but as said, I'll really miss it to see the good posts!

I posted twice, but yes, I noticed things ARE getting out of hands. I'm glad someone took some action, but a bit disappointed because 1) this community was one of the largest reason as to why I would get on the internets and 2)there are wayyyy too many vk fucks out there would still need to learn.
But I don't entirely think that hate communities such as this one can really convince vk fucks to stop ...well, fucking-up. However, it DID bother me how some people went too far ...

thank you and good bye.
it was fun while it lasted.

I'm glad people have learned. I agree, most of the time I wouldn't even click on the cut because I knew it wasn't going to be worth it. ):

I'll miss it, but I understand.

Some of the comments people were making towards some of the people I posted made me feel uncomfortable for posting them... especially regarding some overweight people.

Wait, you mean comments like "this girl deserves to die for the great offense she has committed against -ancafe/gazette member- by not straightening her hair properly" aren't funny or clever? Tell me it ain't so!

yeah it was getting boring really, I just skip over the posts here. You see one person with eyeliner swirls and you've pretty much seen it all.

I'm glad that it was an option for the community to go on hiatus rather than get deleted because of people taking things too far. Let's hope that some clever little twat doesn't try and make a replacement community... that would be a tragic sight to behold.

So long visual fucks, the comm that let me peek into a special world of fail.

I think you did the right thing. On the third point you made, I think it's a shame that something so entertaining should be wasted - for people with such contempt for others, it probably takes a whole lot less than amusingly munted makeup etc. to get them to express it.

Anyway, thanks very much for the many lulz.

Ah, I remember when I joined the comm... I couldn't stop laughing for the first few days. Lately, a lot were not even funny or worthy as a fuck.

I guess this comm has taught me the difference between passable and eyesore/wrong/fuck. I wanna thank this comm for helping me sharpen my fail detecting skillz.

I agree with the second thing you said (I joined a bit later, but now I'll go check the beginnings of this comm).

Thank you, visual_fucks, and please, come back again! The world needs you! ;_;

I agree with this. Many people told fucks "to die", specially Russians. Seriously, I dunno why, but Russians tend to say that a lot!! Must be in their culture or something...? XD

Anyway, I will miss this community, a lot. I didn't expect this to happen so suddenly, without a last warning, but you do things like that a lot so... yeah, I guess we'll have to put up with it X__X

I hope this comm comes back one day soon, some of the posts were really lol-worthy... u_u
