Snarkfest??? [06 Dec 2006|04:58pm]


Does anyone have any idea if there's been any change with Snarkfest lately?  I went to log in last week and my username was no longer valid, and it looked as though the entire username database had been deleted.  I had to go out of town, so I tried just recreating my user name to see if that gave me access, but no luck.

Hi, The Glen here. Snarkfest seems to be down, or at least that's what I'm getting.
Anyone else having that problem? I feel...lost.

A reason for not embracing the NatalieM site [14 Mar 2005|04:47pm]

[ mood | pissed off ]

So, the mod on PX This has posted a very long screed that has me (and many others) determined to delete their bookmarks to the site as quickly as possible.

Ewww, it's too dark in here!, a thread started by the mod, containing these little gems:

"additionally, you should remember it is not the company's responsibility to encourage your job negligence any more than it is Playboy's responsibility to clothe their models just because you like to sneak a lookie-loo during work sometimes.
the company is also not responsible for your e-ddiction which leads you to read messageboards for hours on end; maybe you should thank the designer for forcing you to get up intermittently and give your eyes a rest, as is recommended by whomever writes those Computer Usage Health Guide tips."

"compromise? sure! let's go with GRAY! will that make everyone happy ? OF COURSE NOT but let's cross our fingers anyways.

does this solve our problem? no, it doesn't. so here's what will:

go here and click on one of the links that say "BUY the book" and do just that. save the receipt page and then e-mail Gnat a copy at gnat.alien@gmail.com

when she has received enough receipts to satisfy the costs, she will take personal responsibility for getting her friend to design ANOTHER visually beautiful and appropriate, but LIGHT "skin" for these boards, again at his drastically reduced "just for her" rate.
(and don't even think of going back afterward to cancel, because we will pray all day and night that Karma punishes you for being the sneaky, manipulative creep you are.)"

There's more, every bit in the same vein. Basically, it's "Fuck you all for wanting a change, despite the fact that I was the one who started a threat for you to complain about the way the board looks. But if you all are very good and buy shitloads of my book, I maybe will accomodate your bourgeouis little demands, stupid former Fametrackers." She's managed to alienate vast swaths of people in about...one day! Might be a record.

So which new forum are you going to? [13 Mar 2005|05:49pm]

Now that there are several sites up for us "refugees", which one(s) are you going to?

I've checked out NatalieM's site, but it's very dark coloured and neon and, to be honest, hurts my eyes enough that I doubt I'll visit again (which is disappointing, because I really thought it would be good). The layout over at SnarkFest is nicer (IMO) and it seems to have a lot of visitors/posts already. I like it over at Moldy Tofu's place but I worry that the board will collapse under our weight.

I've uploaded the Jesus and Wing Chun threads:


Wing Chun

I'm missing page 6 of the Jesus thread, so here's another link to an archive of that thread.

New hangout! [12 Mar 2005|01:24am]

I don't know if you all are keeping up on Displaced Snark, but a new forum opened tonight, Snarkfest. So get in there and put up some topics! Plus erm, can anyone with a better memory than I please explain in the "Who are you" topic what happened during the fametracker blackout? Because, while I know I couldn't go on for awhile and had to re-register, I can't think of why it happened, and someone was asking about it. Thanks!

Sorry if any of this has been posted, LJ currently hates me and won't let me view most comments.

Hey, did anyone save the Jesus thread who would be willing to email it to me? I didn't get a chance to read it, and I'd really like to. Thanks!

AICN & Fametrackers animosity [11 Mar 2005|08:40am]

[ mood | curious ]

I heard a rumour about this in the last few days, but everyone is very quiet. Very appreciative if you can share whatever info you like.

Say what you want about Harry & those posters, but at least AICN doens't pretend to be an intellectually superior snarker like the FT posters, such as btstewart.

The End? [11 Mar 2005|11:14am]

[ mood | morose ]

Well ladies and gentlemen, I think it's over. I was checking out the latest insane threads in the Celebs section (looking for examples in my own journal entry) and I tried to go to the Lights Out thread and heres the message that came up:

It's Troll City and the FT forums are the mayor!
Three cheers to the FT regulars at their new homes. Here's hoping the trolls you left behind here do not follow you there.
Thanks for everything to everybody. Look for the first of serveral new features on FT in the next week or so.

Below is the log in screen and when I tried to log in the same page just came up again. Looks like its over and Wing finally had enough of everyone telling her the truth unnecessarily critisizing her. Anyone know if she got any last words in or did she just shut it down quietly?

I am sad.

ETA: I just noticed that "several" is spelled wrong. 40%<= Wing, read the FAQ damnit. We like things spelled right around here.

Fametracker's demise [10 Mar 2005|02:21pm]

[ mood | shocked ]

Is anyone else appalled at the anarchy going on in the Celebs thread? People trolling, accusing one another and expressing their dislike of the moderators (yet continued to post).

Reminds me of the Gift (BtVS episode).

What happened? Why the low concealed rage towards the forums? ANyone know?

Above is a brand-spankin' new schadenfreude community. The look and all will probably change, but feel free to start taking joy in celeb pain right away.

Hopefully, there isn't someone out there taking joy in the FT forums closing. "Ha! Can't mock me now! I'll say all the stupid things I want! Like how I decided Kabba-thingy was better than $cientolowhatsit because I got a trendy little red bracelet--it's soooo much better than those dumb yellow cancer-biker rubberbands."

Just heard the news. I'm shocked and appalled. I immediately jumped on the bandwagon and created blinditems a community where we can continue the great Fametracker tradition of celebrity gossip.

Please, people. I need this. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have my gossip fix.


Beaten to the punch!

Okay, I just read about ft_blinditems over on fametracker, so I guess you can ignore this post.

Behold! The LJ community for all your Chyna's Weenis needs. How... gruesome.

I can't think of good usernames for the Britney or Schadenfreude communities, so someone else can do this (pretty please?), because I am lazy.

Does anyone have the hex codes for Fametracker-style coloring? 'Cause I want to make everything pretty.

Are there any communities displaced Fametrackers want or need? I'd be glad to create and mod one (I say in a pathetic attempt to cling to the former glory of Fametracker), if there's anything people specifically need, like a music community or something... anything? Celebrity Endowments? Celebrity Schadenfreude? No? A dedicated Britney LJ community? Anything? At all?

[ mood | busy ]

I don't know how many of you have been reading the "Last One Out Turn Off The Lights" thread over at the Forums, but I though I would post this for those of you who don't.

As some of you may or may not know, NatalieM has been working on finding us a new home, and has, apparently, found some corporate sponsorship/someone with deep pockets (I'm a bit fuzzy on that bit) to finance a new forum.

Edit: This is NatalieM's post, in case anyone is interested:

"That said, I have great news. Someone (who has lurked here occasionally) has agreed to be our "corporate sponsor" and adopt us. I thought this was very important to have-- somebody who has a vested interest in seeing the forum remain and grow. The forums will be funded by "supporting" our sponsor, much like the OODT sales here, just with different items. If that doesn't work, we'll all get plenty of warning, and then we'll decide how to tackle any financial problems.

I don't feel right pimping the new sponsor here, so I won't. But I will say I did put a lot of thought in finding somebody who I thought would be the perfect marriage for FT, and I am so so glad the sponsor agreed, and I'm so happy I could burst right now.

Please don't let me down or I will kill you all. Just kidding."

The URL that you will want to keep in mind, should you care to join the new forums, is this one. Hopefully this will be up and running soon, and we can all return to our regularly scheduled snarking.

Ms Dressup here.

I'm so sad about the forums! It seems like NatalieM is going to come up with something, but it literally will not be the same.

Yet another refugee [07 Mar 2005|03:39am]

I'm Luftballoons, and I just stumbled onto FameTracker about six months ago. I had finally found my people. And now, this.

Hold me? Tell me it will be okay?

So. Here's another FT soon-to-be-refugee. I'm Candice, but some of you may know me as MtOlivePickles. I was most likely to be seen lurking and occasionally posting in the Publishing and Multimedia Forum.

Question: if I made a community for people who posted in the YA thread (and threads related to it, like the Fearless one, the Sleepover Friends one and so on), would anyone join?
