Comment on This Post:
Hi, I'm Jeremiah "Death Dark" Williams. I'm a 23 year old Caucasian male living in Florence, South Carolina. I'm currently unemployed and will be graduating with a Computer Science degree in May, after which I will be moving to the Greenville/Spartanburg area to get a job in the computer science field.
Your move, bitch.
Haha touche. My respect for you went up only further deathdark.
Le Sigh Troll, just do us all a favour and take a long walk off a short pier. Ta muchly.
You seem new here. From what I guess, you followed Liz here from her facebook or twitter post. Well, I've been here for quite a bit longer, and this isn't just an image library -- this is a community.
Oh, because I'm new my opinion isn't valid? Length of membership determines worth or something? What a prat you are. A community is defined by it's members and I hope the majority here are better examples than you, because you are a grade A dick. How about rather than offering negative, unhelpful and snide comments you offer up constructive criticism to help a new member grow and improve their abilities? You know, how a community ACTUALLY works. This may be a community, but I don't think you have grasped how they work.
When you start with criticism and the person explodes with anger, you have a few choices: get angry, walk away, calm them down, or troll them.
I tried a bit of the calming down, but she didn't want to take it, so I just went with the trolling.
Except it wasn't criticism, it was just trolling from the get go. Constructive criticism is "hey, I see you used photoshop to emphasise the gag, but the edges are sharp. Have you considered blending to soften the edges?" Saying what amounts to "crap photoshop!" is NOT useful in any way, shape or form.
She was kind of spamming us with bad images. I was a little caustic with my criticisms. So what? Is her skin so thin?
Surely, 'bad images' is a purely subjective matter - what one person regards as 'bad' another will love, as is the same with anything involving humans. If you don't like it, why not just pass it by? Why take the time to rain on someone else? Or if you have to comment, why not say "well, it's not to my tastes and there are several technical flaws, have you considered..."
The motivationals were clearly out of proper format, the photo editing was clearly rough, the images weren't close to funny, the text wasn't relevant to the pictures, and it was all featuring the poster.
That's just bad. It's not PURELY subjective. She broke meme traditions trying to sway it in her favor and it didn't work. She needs a professional graphic designer and comedic writer.
and that is why you are DD, awesomeness
:'D You're my hero, DD!
"Because he's the hero lolbrary deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Death Dark." -- fuck_yeah_rage
Vvvvvv. BOM BOM t-t-t-t BOM BUUUUUM
DADADADADADADADA DEATHDARK! DEATHDARK!
Welcome to my thread!
then let it be henceforth known that this is the official DeathDark forum.
DD, you are the shit, sir.
surely you can tell by the amount of likes on tese pictures that the general community here considers them bad
I just love the differences in neg. and pos. points between DD and phoenix. It tickles my perception of what i think is funny :]
Right now there's a whopping 44 points of difference between how he's perceived and how I'm perceived. As if having -22 on a post weren't bad enough...
You have a couple fair points, but what you have exhibited isn't new to the community naivete behavior, it is more like you are blindly defending someone who is insulting a community and are trying to use your new membership as a shield. That's why your opinion isn't valid, not because we disagree with it.
Well, all she did was post pictures and get some real crap for it. Not constructive criticism but real crap. And as I have indicated elsewhere, I don't like that. So, if people are going to act like that, I deal with them on their level. If people elevate themselves to a higher level, I reciprocate, as you may have noticed above.
Phoenix, I saw some of her first posts, and several people offered her negative, but albeit constructive criticism. It wasn't until later when her posts became self-centered/attention-demanding along with her anger induced comments that people began to give her a hard time. She is getting shit for starting shit, not because people think she isn't funny. That and if someone doesn't like your picture on a website and they aren't willing to give you constructive criticism, who the hell cares? It's the internet, there are legions of trolls who just go on websites looking for fights they can start up. So just calm down and relax.
if you cant take criticism when you join the lolbrary, why the hell did or your little friend join in the first place? we have the right to speak our minds and our opinions freely. if you or your friends get thier feelings hurt in the process, delete your profiles and let the rest of us get on with our lives.
We don't come here for criticism, we come here for the laughs, it's not a competition.
quite true! however if someone posts something that is below the humor standard for us lolbraryians, then they should be prepared to face at least some criticism.
Actually this is the first person I've ever seen him troll, and I've been here for quite a while. For the most part even people he bothers respect him, he's usually pretty fair.
I third that
He trolls me :'( lolol :P
You pretty much ask for it.
We love you anyways meadock :)
We are a community that respects DeathDark's opinion. Yes, he has been here longer so we hold him with higher regard than we do someone who obviously doesn't understand what funny is. Also, it seems like Liz is spending an awful lot of time away from the kitchen.
I would try being here for a bit longer before making your opinion on someone; otherwise you just look like an idiot.
How exactly was his comment a troll comment? He called her out fair and square, and in a ballsy way too.
Dude, no need to make fun of yourself... jeesh.
phoenix, please, do not insult bill this way. if you are so keen on becoming a part of this community, pissing everyone off in it isn't the way to go. especially as bill is an admin...
ps. I think you can tell from the number of upvotes DeathDark and bill are getting and the downvotes that you're getting that you're in a small minority of the community that does not like DeathDark.
Oh no! My cover has been blown!
lol oh well I need to go to sleep anyways.
Quite frankly, I don't care for opinion, I care for facts. If someone acts dicky, I point it out. If someone makes a foolish comment, I point it out. After many years I have learnt that honesty is the best policy, suppressing things never ever helps. All DeathDark has done is pick on the newbie and that is shameful. He offered no constructive criticism, no advice. Just abuse. So pardon me for trying to be a decent human being. I was going to start sharing some of my work on here, but given the attitude displayed so far towards new members, I am seriously reconsidering that.
Phoenix, if you actually spend some time here you will quickly realize that the lolbrary has one of the friendliest communities on the net (for an entertainment site).
You and Liz have let death get under your skin, but I think his main concern is that a lot of liz's posts have been pretty self centered, almost to the point of being promotional. That is what is irking him.
"for an entertainment site"
True true. Most funny pic sites are full of nothing but trolls and assholes.
Yes, editing peoples comments is soooooooooooooooo mature. Nice abuse of admin powers there :)
It could have been worse.
I reserve the right to "abuse admin powers" when people abuse me.
Well, speaking as an admin elsewhere, I never edit posts - I will address and counter the points made, even when they are insults to myself. Editing the post only shows an immature style of behaviour that reflects poorly on the overall community as the admin is a direct representative of the community and what is considered acceptable conduct therein. It also paints a poor image of the admin individual as it can indicate a level of immaturity.
Personally, I find sanctions (removal of posting privileges, temporary bans etc) to be a far more effective response than post editing. Obviously, if a post is especially offensive (ie: racist, sexist, homophobic in the extreme - like 'kill all...') then it should be deleted and replaced with a "removed for..." comment.
Bill's a good admin. He's kind and chummy and gets along with the kiddies.
He keeps the lolbrary as it should be (I even had him delete a post of mine before), and that's all we can really ask of him.
Tell you what, why don't we meet in the middle. You edit your own post, and remove the insults (both to you and me) and I promise not to edit it.
That way, we're both taking the high road. Sound good?
Well, it wouldn't let me edit your altered section of the comment, so I just deleted the whole thing.
It should have allowed you to save the edit, even though the altered content would not show up in the edit form. But don't worry about it. If you accept my apology, I'll accept your attempt to edit it as an apology and we'll call it a night.
I was in bed as soon as I posted that, I think we can call that a mutual apology
Haha it's old news on this post, we worked it out rather civilly and fairly actually :-D
Your real name isn't Liz Vicious.
Also, you suck dick better than you make memes. Stick to what you know, which is making money off your twat, not from being business savvy. Savvy?
I'll say it again:
Pip, you're all right.
Also you're pretty badass.
You take off your freaking clothes, take photos of yourself then post them online. Yeah, you're gonna have more "fans" than most, it's part of the industry you're in.
BTW, you are an attention seeker. That's also part of the industry you're in.
Nixie, I love you.
"You take off your freaking clothes, take photos of yourself then post them online. Yeah, you're gonna have more "fans" than most."
And yet every time I try to do the same thing I lose fans! What the hell life isn't fair I say!
We all want an equal world, but unfortunately for you guys it never will be. Our boobs make us superior.
Love this! So funny! Can we just make this entire comment section a lolbrary post? lol
I want this to be archived forever.
You sir! Are a sir!
I wasn't calling you out to hear your life's story. You accused me of hiding behind anonymity. I'm not anonymous, I'm Jerry. While I'm not playing for the crowd, I appreciate its support. Any trolling I've done to you has been light by comparison, and frankly just started as criticism, but you made it far too easy to rile you up, so I kept taking since you kept giving.
Don't feed the trolls.
You don't understand what the image is saying, do you? You don't even understand how my original post disassembled the argument, either, do you?
wtf does icon 4 mean?
The fourth icon in the image floating above the sea of comments.
Oh. She kept repeating it like it was some 3l33t internet slangzorz or something...
I'm away from this website for a single day, come back and you're picking on pretty girls DeathDark. For shame :-P
What can I say? They come to me.
Some girls just like that shit.
Okay, when did the lolbrary become full of jerks, I come here for the "lols," and you guys have turned this into some sort of debate against Liz Vicious, so what if you're some kind of big shot on the lolbrary, get off her back.
I see how it may look like that, but you're missing the first 2/3 of the situation because those posts were deleted (the images). You can see that she started it here by calling me a "Total Dickwad."
oh great, a corporate fame machine, just take the hint that nobody on here cares about you and fuck off.
This shit is ridiculous... Smh
I dont think sucking dick is a good way to make it to the top and be proud of it but hey... to each their own
No one cares LizVicious! If you really are 24 "tears" old stop acting like you're 16. You sound like a whiny teenage brat, and you're an embarrassment, not only to yourself, but all the women users on here. It's not because you do porn. That's kind of cool. It's because you annoy the crap out of everyone, your stuff isn't funny, and you're a obviously at stupid, self-concious bitch.
Sorry... I'm pregnant. I slightly embarrassed by this today:(
pregnant?!?! but we just got married!
Do you think your opinion should sway our votes?
We routinely downvote reposts, especially recent ones, except for Meadock sometimes because it's kind of a running joke that he does them all the time. Usually the joke is only funny the first time it's seen. When you posted yours we had just seen it like a week before. The score on the one you found was so high because it was posted first. That's also why multiple versions of the same picture, like you had a few times, got downvoted so badly. This isn't really like a deviant art thing where we evaluate and critique a joke and help to make it better- it's a pretty simple formula. If it makes us laugh when we see it, it gets voted up. If it doesn't, it gets voted down. If we see it a lot of times, it gets voted down pretty viciously. FYI, another thing that will probably get stuff downvoted pretty fast is bad spelling or grammar, because most of us here are pretty self-acknowledged nerds. We routinely correct badly written things, as long as it isn't obviously deliberate like lolcats or something. Those things, along with the fact that most (though I admit, not all) of the humor here is pretty pg-13, and some of the twat shots were kind of surprising, are the reasons your stuff was initially downvoted so badly. We're also mostly fond of each other, so we do tend to defend the people we already know before we'll do it for a stranger. We really do just come here to look at funny pics and have a laugh, but if you keep calling us "fucking assholes" and the like, you are probably not going to get a lot of love here. That is the reason why your comments continue to get massive downvotes. If you don't really mind posting stuff somewhere where nobody likes you, by all means keep going like you're going. But really, if you just tone it down, we're pretty welcoming of new people. We just aren't fond of confrontation and tend to mass against it when it's presented to us. If you want to be nice, you'll get nice back, but we really don't like mean people.
Oh, you've edit this since you were last here.
Though still didn't correct your grammar :/
Just sent you a friend request! Funny stuff dude, props.
I accepted it. I ended up with two, and I don't know who the hell they are, but I assume they're from here.
Anyone else is welcome, as well. (Where's my friend request, Billmalarky?)
One from me too!
The only other friend request I got was from a "Blake."
Lol, just sent it.
Facebook wasn't refreshing properly.
Ithink i might just add this fb profile, just because iwanna know the man behind the awesomeness
I got two requests already.
Haha you'll get another one soon haha
Isn't anyone who shares their personal work in a public forum an attention whore? I have several sites and groups dedicated to my writing and photography which I have published for the feedback to help me grow my abilities, so I too would be an attention whore.
sounds quite likely yes
You sir, are an inspiration.
I'm not sure who you're talking to. Under each post, there's some text that says "Reply." Though it doesn't look like a link, you can click it to do the tiered responses as seen above and also alert the user you're talking to of a new message.
I did not know that. Thank you very much.
Deathdark, do you think I should format "reply" to look like a link?
I never did before because it "isn't" a link and I didn't want to confuse people.
but do you think it would help?
Most people seem to be picking up on it all right. jhlip and native-babe are the only two I've ever seen that didn't figure it out on their own (no insult to jhlip).
Formatting it like a link should be okay, though, I'd think. In the very least, it needs to be distinguishable from normal text, and the underline is the most efficient method.
Also, I'm going to send you a PM about another issue I discovered in my browsing. It's a tad lengthy.
No insult at all. Everybody has their moments. I just happened to have mine on this site.
I say no insult as native-babe was a really bad content contributor. She was on-scale with Uncle Outhouse. The difference being Outhouse is doing it intentionally and it's kind of funny just for that.
DeathDark I would love to just shake the fuck out of your hand.
Yes I'm going to go ahead and format it as a link then. I've noticed other people struggling to find the reply button in the past.
Looking forward to the PM.
Btw Bill, I really like the new website icon logo, much cleaner unlike the new youtube icon, lol
Thanks man! Yeah the old favicon/open graph logo was just awful... remnants from the old site.
I also added touch icon support if you are browsing from your ipad/iphone/android.
Unfortunately, I am not fortunate enough to own one of those but I'm positive that anyone that does is appreciative. :D
That's okay, there's more good things to come on the site in the not so distant future that everyone will get to enjoy :-)
I hope so :D Hints towards the app that I suggested lol
Not very subtle there, are you?
Not trying to be, lol
I'm really looking forward to it!
I knocked out the new comment reply/edit/delete actions link style formatting this morning and I must say that it looks a lot better. I don't know why I didn't just do that in the first place...
If it still looks a bit weird to you, delete your browser cache and all should be well.
I saw it when I got on earlier. Looks nice.
Haha that would be crazy. :-)
Just commenting to say I'm upvoting this not as a diss to deathdark, quite the opposite, but because it is a fucking fascinating thread. Holy shit what the hell happened here?!?
I upvoted because the pic was funny, and like most funny things it had some truth behind it.
I think I'm going to switch my vote to up in respect for the thread.
hi Liz and welcome to the lolbrary! here you will find a community of people who love humor and hate reposts. also, you may have noticed that i, too, am a bit of a celebrity around these parts. it's good to have some company. if you ever need some sagely advice on what may or may not work on the lolbrary, don't hesitate to message me. :)
Leave to Uncle Outhouse to give her a warm welcome. lol
All that is being said is that trolls will troll other trolls and then the trolling cycle of trolling shall continuing its trolling ways.
With that said, I shall post this link that many of you may be familiar with:
Now will all of you sing with me?
Not trying to defend Uncle Outhouse... but I'd say this chicks stuff is on a different level of annoying shit. Uncle Outhouse is a troll that I personally find annoying, but funny.
Definently, he's a troll but it's funny. Her stuff isn't of good quality but then she just gets pissy about it.
Uncle, I'm plotting my next troll for you sir...
I'd just like to make it known that I like reposts.
I'm pretty sure that phoenix0879 is getting some from this chick.
He's probably the admin for her porno site trying desperately to smooth over the fact the she's being a dumbass on here. Also, this dude is clearly friend zoned. She didn't even thank him for his help.
He's probably never met her, but she inspires him nightly.
HA! Almost spit out my tea over this one. Nice.
I've never had a problem with DeathDark. Clearly, it's you who's got the problem.
Did anyone else like this because of the comments, but not the actual picture submitted???
I changed mine back to + vote after reading this. I'm still new here, but damn do I love some of the people who have been here longer. Such a wonderful community.
The comments are brilliant XDXD
You know a thread is getting to the "too long" point when you have to "Ctrl F" to find a comment
I liked the Penny Arcade version better. http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/03/19
John Gabriel is a penny arcade character isn't he (Gabe?)? So I guess that would be the original.
Some of you guys commenting are fucking sexist, get off her back, I happen to think this post is very funny, Deathdark has become some kind of asshole from his "lolbrary" internet popularity, and maybe some of your posts have been funny, I don't know, I don't keep track of who posts what, but it seems you've gotten a lot of followers due to your hot shot status among members here at the lolbrary. This website wasn't meant for your criticism or debates, it's meant for the "LOLs," Liz, keep it up. :)
How the fuck is anyone sexist
I'm curious, too. I'm not railing on Nixie, Bulmilala, LennyDots, or disclady00, and they're all women (I may be wrong about Lenny, but I'm certain I've seen her say it before).
You are indeed correct, DD, I am a girl! And as much as I hate to side with the enemy even a little here, this happened earlier:

Please note that as a woman with a fairly tidy kitchen and a well fed Bf at home, I found the comment hilarious. I think it's the closest to sexist I saw. Besides which, I think what the website was "meant for" in Capt. W's eyes is kind of moot, since there are a lot of very happy people playing nicely on this site for the most part. We just want to look at funny pictures, not commercials or silly whining.
I didn't even view it as sexist since it was just a meme reference.
Fair enough. It's just the only thing I could find that might qualify.
And I have to say, this whole uproar is more than a little surreal, isn't it?
I know. I never suspected I'd talk to Liz Vicious, let alone troll her. But the opportunity showed the community's support for me which makes me joyful, and encourages me. Kind of cheesy, I know, but it's easier for me to believe in me when others do so, too.
As the writer of that comment, I would like to let you know that I am female as well. I just enjoy the lol's
And now I know.
I believe we have had this conversations before :) http://www.lolbrary.com/post/12937/why-im-single/
Derp, you're right. I'm sorry I forgot.
It is fine. How could I expect someone I've never met to remember my gender? Besides, I believe you have become quite famous recently!
Fame is not reason to become unfriendly (you hear that, Liz?).
I have a good memory for these things, too, usually. I mean, as soon as you linked to it I remembered the conversation. I even know that LennyDots and Bulmilala have boyfriends because they mentioned it before. And not to sound like a total creeper, billmalarky has a girlfriend, and it isn't jillmalarky.
So, yeah, I should have remembered.
So should I take it personally and create a post about it?
I'm mildly impressed sir!
Why, thank you, ma'am. And now I know you're pregnant, too.
Apparently, engaged as well... to a certain penguin. My online life is becoming complicated. But yes, I am very pregnant.
Apparently so... let's see if you can find where he proposed to me on the website. lol
Very nice!!! I think we're friends now DeathDark.
Sounds good to me.
actually we have married now. my how time flies.
Nah, I don't believe it. Bill's too much of a nerd for all that.
You would know... ;-)
Unfortunately. ;-D I kid. I bet she is awesome, awesome to the max!
She sure is :-)
If the username is gender neutral, I believe most people on the internet assume the sex to be their own.
I assume it to be the gender which is most likely to use the website. IE, I presume any gender ambiguous user names on here to be male.
Yes that would make sense.
whaaaat 101 comments!??? xD
I love everyone.
Haha love this comment.
I'm autoatically downvoting anything posted by LizVicious. I'll bet that it's not even her, just some crazy, off-his-rocker fan who wants to get her attention.
She verified it is actually her on her twitter account
And her facebook
If she didn't look like she literally painted her face on, I'd call her jailbait.
If you actually see this, as it is slowly being crushed to death by 116 comments.....tell my wife I love her
YOU'LL MAKE IT THROUGH, MAN! JUST HANG IN THERE!
This was awesome. Just read all the posts lol. That's pretty cool that you are in Florence. I go to USC. I simply wanted to say that you were great in all this. Liz calling you out and then not using her real name while attacking everyone along with phoenix trying to say that you were an attention seeker for blowing up her argument was funny. I don't care if you started it or not lol. Just based on this Liz needs to go back to her territory and stop advertising on here. Her whole bio was one giant, "I'm a porn star like me." advertisement. Nice work, man.
Here, I'll help lightened the load by putting a comment under yours!
127 comments in about 24 hours.........this shit has gotten ridiculous.
I'm staying out of this...
This post = see my username.
This bitch is crazy
Damn, what happened here?
A shitstorm for the history books sir. That is what happened here. :P
Once upon a time, on the internet site named Lolbrary, there was a Dark Knight, named DeathDark. This Dark Knight would patrol Lolbrary, upvoting and downvoting where necessary, adding insightful comments to certain images and defeating fiendish reposts (except that from Meadock, whom was cursed to forever make reposts and thus could not help his actions).
Then, one fateful day, a new poster arrive. This poster, LizVicious, posted appalling posts, with poor jokes and photoshop skills. DeathDark valiantly tried to persuade this maiden to improve her skills before posting again but, alas, it fell upon deaf ears. Again and again, he attempted to sway the maiden against the abominations she was posting, but, again and again, she refused to listen. The knight realised that the maiden was not interested, so tried to turn her off by usage of his clever wit.
The maiden took offence to this though, and thus attacked the knight back. However, her attack was misguided, and instead turned the Lolbrary village against her.
After a few last posts, the maiden fled.
And they all lived happily ever after - for awhile, anyway.
My kind of storm! Thanks for the explanation.
I started reading this, then I realised how many freaking comments there are!
Crickey! There are almost too many reasons why this thread was amazing. I have never used the upvote comment option so much on one Lolbrary post.
DeathDark, billmalarky, Nixie-The-Pixie, jillmalarky, LennyDots- You guys are simply awesome.
This thread is why I love the Lolbrary!
I was sent to this thread by Sephiroth, thank you good sir, I needed a large amount of laughing.
