Unrelated, but there's something I feel we should address in this community. Our community is being torn apart by the rankings systems. We need to get rid of it. All it does is make people force out comments as much as they can to get as many points as possible. It's created this sense of quantity over quality, and it's ruining the comments section. It also is causing conflict amongst ourselves. I'm sure most of us are aware of what's going on as far as that's concerned, so I won't go deeper. I ask that any and all who agree that the ranking system should be removed upvote this comment so that maybe StuckPixel will see. Thanks for reading, and sorry for the long post.
@horker orgy, see, I don't 'force' out comments, I comment because it's fun to laugh, make others laugh, and be a part of such an amazing community. Of course there will always be downvote trolls and people say "first", and there will be people of comment for upvotes, but that's not everyone, as I said, I could care less about the upvotes, as long as I made someone laugh. Forget the leaderboards are there, and continue to enjoy this wonderful app, and I hope this helps.
@Pikachusmother, you are exactly the type of guy that the leaderboards discourage. Keep doing what you're doing, man.
@horker orgy, shhhhh, we don't need to bring this up anymore. It has been said so many times that the whole "leaderboards are ruining this app" argument is getting stale and has no meaning anymore. Just let it play out. Nothing will change if they're removed, as people will still thrive off the recognition and the fact that they will be getting upvotes due to fame instead of the little badge next to their name
@Marshal Bowdrie, Nice badge bro
@horker orgy, I've seen this app in almost every form since birth, and it's been a fun ride, even recently when I had the community search for a pic I remember as a child, and it was ID 2038, which is basically at the very birth of this app, which took me by surprise at how old this app is, and how long it has stayed strong and grown with its own community that adapt and change as the content does.
It's also fun to see a lot of the unique names on here and how funny and creative people can really be.
@Pikachusmother, I've been here since this app was blue, and I've only seen a decline in the community since the leaderboards update. Things have changed, but not for the better.
@Marshal Bowdrie, but that recognition is better, as it encourages the individual to strive to entertain rather than strive for a badge/points in a system. Our community has changed since the leaderboards update.
@Ajunta Pall, right back at ya dude
@horker orgy, classic upvote bait!!
@Ajunta Pall, why were people down voting you earlier? *not trying to start anything* there's a lot of Djcks here but I've never thought you were one of them.
@arcadefire, don't say that dude, if you notice, he got like 5, and if you really wanna call someone out for that, call me out, ref ID: 219381
@arcadefire, I'm a djck, a small one but a djck nonetheless
@Swagneto, there's nothing wrong with being a chode.
@arcadefire, Tell that to my girlfriend. She says stuff like "My pinky finger is bigger" or "please stop telling people im your girlfriend." Ahhh love
@horker orgy, I feel like its always been like that. People competing for top comment and forcing out crappy comments that get upvoted for the sole reason that they came to an update early
@horker orgy, I didn't even notice the system until I saw your comment...I just like to look at the pictures
@Pikachusmother, personally I kind of share your view, I don't strive for the leaderboard but I do try for upvotes. When I leave (or attempt to leave) a funny comment on a post I would like votes because I want the community's opinion on my joke. Usually that results in getting a goldmine with a new update and posting something witty on any photo I can think of one, I don't spam posts (or at the very least don't try to)
@Pikachusmother, personally i strive to be a top FP user like yourself...hopefully being able to become a legend such as taquito speedo, agent gif, invalid chicken, mister sir, just to name a few from the FP HOF
@No Sjit, I always wonder if those guys (girls?) are still on here but with different names.
@horker orgy, BUT J WANT TO VE ON TOP... Nah, I'm fine with the rankings system. They aren't forcing out jokes. They cleanup with them themselves, and if they thinks it's funny, then they post it. Simple.
@horker orgy, I agree, + StuckPixel doesn't comment anymore, no more April fools and stuff like this, said to say that I think if the app keeps going down this path it won't be so great like it was before.
@horker orgy, a little late to the convo but I do the same thing for making people laugh. I didn't even know there was a leaderboard... Yes there are time that I get upset for comments I post that get downvoted but I do that about everything. I've been part of this community for a year and a half now. Didn't say anything for the first half. But I've enjoyed it and wish that it continues with this amazing community.
@horker orgy, Wow...another person who thinks everyone should be a winner all the time....I believe the incredibles had something to say about that xD
@horker orgy, i just comment to comment and work my funny to be better. That and NOONE TOLD ME IT UPDATED MONTHLY or reset or something...i do refuse to upvote something i dont like to get on a leaderboard though. Whatever..
@Pikachusmother, ...FIRST!...runs into nuke bunker*...i will be on fallout 5!
@Marshal Bowdrie, 😳 you get a badge too! WTH!
@Pikachusmother, calls you out* wanna get some food? Im hungry!
@Pikachusmother, I'm of the same attitude. I once hit #1 top commentor, now I don't even pay attention to the list. I comment when I want to, not because of some feeling that I 'need' to.
@horker orgy, I mean I don't have much to say, you said it all. Just wanna support this. I try to comment to make others laugh, and I could care less about upvotes (honestly I'd rather have comments, I love interacting with you guys!) but yeah, the leaderboards need to go
@I Are Lebo, same with voting for me. I got top voter and held it for a month. Got my awesome buttons from Stuckpixel and now I just vote for pics I like and don't pay any attention to the leaderboards.
@Spotted Dick, it's just not worth the effort to maintain. Getting top commenter required way too much effort. Maintaining it was not even worth entertaining.
@I Are Lebo, exactly! It takes the fun out if it because you're constantly thinking of witty comments and puns and don't take the time to enjoy the pictures and community
@horker orgy, you're just mad because you aren't funny. Shut up and look at the pictures like this app is used for.
@TheMaggotSolaire, chill man, if I was the only one who felt this way, nobody would have upvoted me. There's no need for hostility
@horker orgy, I agree, it ruins what is essentially a free market with perfect competition in favor of what is essentially a brand name
@horker orgy, but you get a free t shirt if you end the month top commenter
after anything political happens ever
What Faceb- oh, oh this is fine
I've been waiting for stuff to blow over 30,000 beers ago....I need a new liver
@OzarkParkMark, I think you need more than a new liver
Do people recognize my username or am I just another average joe commenter?
@Idiot, I remember my favorite idiot
@Taquito Speedo, I remember my favorite Mexican swimwear
We're always having a stubbie down under
Accurate description of what I should do here
@Ajunta Pall, and yet here you are🤔
@President Trump, Three... more... days...
@Ajunta Pall, What happened? Why are people mad at you? I miss 2 days of FP and I'm out of the loop.
Why does Funnypics now scroll like Facebook??
@ReceiveBacon, you can change it in your settings.
I'm sorry, Shawn...No, I'm SORRY Shawn.
Or grab popcorn
Good thing the Jews couldn't do that
Is it just me or is Facebook slowly turning into MySpace. Fewer and fewer of my friends use it every day and I stopped using it years ago. Maybe that's just the people in my area but Facebook is dying
@Duncan5769, and I have no problem with that.
@Duncan5769, they're still driving their stock price up, so something is going great for them.
