It's time for me to move on. I truly wish you all the best.
I feel like I've had a good run on this app. I can't stress how much all you guys have done for me over the years and I doubt I will be forgetting this community any time soon. Now I realize that this may not make it out of uncut, hell I wasn't even sure that it would get uploaded at all, but I want to just say Thank You. Thank You to all of the people who have made me laugh, the people that I made laugh, the people who made me cry with happiness, the people I made cry, and everyone else that was here for it. I'm leaving the app, and the Funnypics community as a whole, but I didn't want to go quietly into the night. We've had some good times so I figured that I owed it to all of you to properly say farewell. I've spent, I don't even know how many, years on this app starting from a simple lurker and eventually moving on to commenting and posting whenever I got the chance. I like to think that my stuff was liked by everyone but my goal was always small...
@Lord Wivern, but... but... why are you leaving?
Why leave something so good?
@Lord Wivern, we will get it out of Uncut for you *looks at fellow Uncircumcised I mean Uncut members*
Thanks for your contributions over the years. I do recall your name on the Uploader Leaderboards many times.
@Lord Wivern, If I could make even a single person laugh, smile, or just blow some air out of their nose then i was happy (and it was okay if I was that one person). I wish this community the best and hope that the app continues to make people smile (that's what it's here for after all) and I trust that the memers remaining as well as those that come after I'm gone will go on to make (or at least find) the best memes to post. I really wasn't sure how to handle my exit but I eventually came to the conclusion that I should do as I always have done. I should end it with a long read that has a wholesome message. Goodbye and farewell, my friends, I hope to see you again in some other place. Thank you all for reading, and have a most wonderful day!
@Lord Wivern, it's sad to see you go. Good luck with wherever life takes you, and just know that you were absolutely fantastic.
@Lord Wivern, i love you. Im sorry it has to be this way
and thank you for saying goodbye. not everyone get the chance to say goodbye to friends
@Lord Wivern, you didn't make a single person smile, I actually have a girlfriend so I'm not single
@brenno263, weird flex but ok
@Lord Wivern, bruh. It’s just an app to look at pics. It’s not a career.
@x2 6x 9 lol, some people get really involved with the community here so to them it’s more than just an app. If it’s not that way for you that’s cool too, he just wanted to say bye
@seeUpee, i thought it was a play on words more then a flex, cause he smiled but he’s not single
Maybe a little flex...
@Lord Wivern, we did it boys!
@seeUpee, The reason I'm leaving is, unfortunately, political. When I first arrived on the app, there seemed to be a significant desire to keep the app politically neutral and the content (and ads) reflected that. This was before 2016... I started noticing a little over a year ago that the app had gained a definite political leaning (I won't say which leaning, but if you know then you know). I'm talking about the app itself, and presumably the mods that run it, I am NOT talking about the community who have a pretty good system of simply beating out the partisan stuff in uncut usually. But Funnypics also puts out it's own content that goes directly to recent. I've started to notice that these pics, that are not given the same metric of being accepted by the community, have become steadily more and more partisan. Initially I didn't have any issue with this, after all the mods are people who want to post memes too, but then my viewpoint changed about a month ago.
@Lord Wivern, I tried to upload an image (one of the long wholesome rambling ones that I favor) and it got rejected completely. It was given no chance for uncut and was just removed. I would later try to upload more and noticed that even more of my uploads were being removed. The worst part was that I thought back to see if this had happened previously and remembered multiple memes that I thought I had just missed or forgotten to upload
@Lord Wivern, After realizing what was happening, I decided that if that was the kind of people that were running this app then I would be better off moving on.
@Lord Wivern, damn dude im really sorry that happened. I wish you the best of luck my dude, take it easy.
@Lord Wivern, I haven’t uploaded not nearly as many as you have. Have had a bunch of them rejected and sometimes I can’t find the ones that made it thru but are there as someone in a blue moon would upvote it. On the political side of things, yes I have noticed the same, at the same time we are getting closer to an election and to me is funny all the shenanigans of it and find some memes hilarious. Also, some people can’t take a joke and rage. Which is okay, we are a big community with different visions and opinions. That been said, I wouldn’t make it a reason to leave, even tho you are entitled to your own conclusion. I really enjoy this app, have upvoters, commenters and posters that I have really enjoyed. To me is a great distraction away from all the day-to-day stress. Hope you reconsider and don’t go. But if you want to move on just know you will be missed and wish the best on your journey
@Lord Wivern, so long and thanks for all the fish.
@Lord Wivern, Godspeed
@Lord Wivern, do you really have to go? Well, so long brother. You will be missed
@seeUpee, Thank you for your kind words. I also would like to clarify, my departure is less 'I don't agree with these guys' viewpoint so I'm leaving and more 'these guys don't like my viewpoint and are using their power to stop me from voicing it so I'm leaving' I mean, if I can't post memes as I like then that takes away a large portion of the enjoyment I get out of it.
@brenno263, a-HA! But I myself have been single for a good portion of my time on this app and I KNOW that I've made myself smile!
@Lord Wivern, job well done. Seeya later my guy
@DwayneTheCockJohnson, Well you said it and you did it! Thank you and everyone else who got this to 50 and let it into recent! I appreciate my farewell not dying in uncut.
Also, I just wanted to mention that I always enjoy your comments and I crack a smile every time I read your username!
@Lord Wivern, we did it!
Aw shucks. Well, I guess cracking a smile is better than popping a boner
@Lord Wivern, Godspeed my dude. If you want a non political for the most part (I say this very carefully because nothing is ever truly non political when you have this many people), you can join the FP discord, made from the community members from FP, nothing to do with the mods.
But even if not, I had the extremely good fortune of laughing (yes actually laughing) at your memes, so wherever life may take you, always know that you have a friend in Prince Veggie
@Your Waifu, Hearing that makes me very happy! I'm honestly a bit overwhelmed with the sheer quantity of people who have come to send me off. All this is enough to make a grown man cry, d@mn it!
@Prince super Vegeta , I'm actually already on the discord server. I may well actually get on later today now that you mentioned it. (I'll stick around in that one though I don't do much in it)
@Lord Wivern, same here lol
I guess this isn’t totally goodbye then!
@Lord Wivern, it's sad to see one of the few veterans remaining leave. I've been in this app for i don't know how many years as well (back when invalid chicken used to post, so probably prehistoric times) but you've been a constant, if not frequent, member of the community. You'll be sorely missed and just like everyone else I hope you reconsider. If you do decide to leave please say hi to smo queed and petnamedsteve for me at whatever paradise retired meme lords go to!
@Guy Fawkes, I've made too many friendships during my time on Funnypics to do anything else. Btw, me leaving Funnypics doesn't necessarily mean that you won't be hearing from me again. I'm moving to Reddit's r/memes and r/wholesomememes and, this is for you guys who browse Reddit for your memes, you guys have permanent permission to repost my posts here if you want to. Just give me an upvote before you do ok?
@theshadosnipe, I just want you to know how honored I am to be considered in the same class as petnamedsteve and smo queed not to mention being called a memelord! Thank you! I'll let you guys know if Jamal ever found his way out of the store if I ever return.
@Lord Wivern, I don’t know if you’ll see this, but we did butt heads a little, but I was always chatting with your or posting on your photos. You did go missing for a little bit, and you have always been pretty active. I’m super happy to know you are good and leaving on your own accord offer just disappearing. I hope life treats you well and you get some where nice and live happy. I’ll miss you old friend.
@DrSin, Don't worry, I see you. And yeah, we really did butt heads a few times didn't we? But I want you to know that I never disliked you, if nothing else, you definetely kept me on my toes. No, I always respected you. I'll miss you guys when I'm gone, that's for sure, but I'm also sure that I'll pop in from time to time just to check in. I wish you well, my friend, I definitely won't be forgetting you anytime soon!
@Lord Wivern, we still have a discord of some community members thats active and wholesome. We do have a news channel but its relatively enforced to be news not politics or opinions. And you can always just mute that channel if you wanted. We'd love to see you there and keep in touch if you are interested!
@Lord Wivern, I literally have no idea who you are
@Lord Wivern, man. Long time lurker here. Been god knows how many years. Been a fan of years for as long as I can remember. Thank you for being a part of this small corner of the internet. I really appreciate you and your service. Godspeed my friend.
@Lord Wivern, As a wise man once said, See you on the other side. *Presses “F”
@Lord Wivern, We salute you Sir.
@Captain Swordsman, then why bother commenting if that’s all you’re going to say?
@Butthurt Commenter, idk if this is just your persona or what but you realize you commented on a massive thread of supportive people just to say “no one cares” at the end lol anyone who read this far down can tell how nonsensical you are. Read the room next time
@Lord Wivern, so long dude! Thanks for the memes
@Lord Wivern, i've had this app since the fourth generation iPod touch came out. Still use it to this day
@Baltowolf12, I think I first joined this app on an iPhone 4s
@Lord Wivern, Thanks for your good memes, i always liked the long read ones too even though others wouldn't say the same. I'll see you on discord whenever you pop on 😎
@Lord Wivern, Jesus fückin christ. Shut up and leave already.
@Lord Wivern, farewell. I'm probably a blip in FP, but have been here many years as well. I'll admit I scrolled through just to see if Smo Queed replied to you.. miss seeing that crazy dude.
@Butthurt Commenter, yeah people who don’t care don’t take time out of their day to respond. I hope one day you get the hug you so desperately crave
@Lord Wivern, i have absolutely no idea who you are but i wish you well
@Lord Wivern, Lmao, "I don't like how slightly political FP is becoming," decides to switch to a much more blatantly political oriented website. Good luck with that, m8, I'm SURE it has nothing to do with which way it leans.
@x2 6x 9 lol, that may well be the reason he’s leaving.
@Lord Wivern, goodbye, if you can, come back, if not, farewell, you will be missed
@Lord Wivern, I know we've only talked a couple times, but best of luck. Reddit is a good choice.
@Lord Wivern, you're a very driven person, as I was reading your comments I was half expecting you to make the statement (and for that reason, I'm leaving to start my own pic platform)
Why can't you do that, you've risen to the top in this community, and your comments about the way this app is leaning would only make it an easy choice to follow you,
God's speed Lord Wivern
@Butthurt Commenter, way to project your own insecurities bro
@x2 6x 9 lol, I mean if you were actually nice to people or at least funny, people would say nice things about you too.
@butternut squash, I'm honored to hear that but I wouldn't say that I'm at the top of this community, I never have been, and I definitely couldn't make my own app. I enjoy making memes but I would rather be the friendly neighborhood memelord rather that an overarching moderator. (Also programming hates me so that's an issue too)
@ThePandaPool , Thank you. You're right, we haven't talked much but I've always seen your stuff and you've definitely put the time in to get to your level of following in this app. Also, since you are one of the people who knows how difficult it is, I am absolutely floored by all the positivity that has come from this post (I honestly expected a mixed bag of 'ok goodbye then' and 'I don't even know who you are' s in the comments). But yet somehow, in this single pic and all it's comments, I've made my way up to 7th on the top commenter leaderboard. I really wasn't expecting that.
@Lord Wivern, the app as a whole isn't what it once was, but there is still a good group here. And yea, any comments that break 120 upvotes now I are few and far between and you've blown past that.
and I'm sure you'll be tempted to throw some reddit memes at us on occasion.
@Lord Wivern, MUA HA HA, soon I will be one of the only og memers left, and then THEY WILL LOVE MY MEMES!
It’s all coming together.
@Lord Wivern, sad to see you go tho, we will carry the torch onward remembering those we have lost
@orion55, Good luck!
@orion55, good luck outlasting me.
@ThePandaPool , *squints eyes* is that a challenge?
Because you just lost the game buddy.
@Lord Wivern, goodbye old friend.
@orion55, i read through all these comments just to lose the game? heartbreaking
@Carmen Sandiego, always has been...
Another one bites the dust
Who are you? I've been here for 10+ years and I don't know you.
@Sluggernot, not just me thinking that then although I've not been here as long as that
@Inverted Scrotum, I checked the uploads. Pretty good selection
@Sluggernot, same boat idk who thisnis
@Sluggernot, I have not seen you around ....... lurker ? Cuz 10+ years and I haven’t ran into you
@DrSin, I've been here and there
@Sluggernot, well, sadly “not starting shït, I have no clue who you are, but I’ve seen wayvern post a lot, he use to get a ton of upload as well as comment of stuff, but you can’t come in here trying to be bigger and funnier when most of us know him. Just being polite
@DrSin, I'm not coming in here trying to be bigger and funnier. Goober
Better not move on to another app like ifunny
@Your Darkest Secret, I'd never betray you guys like that! I'm going upriver to Reddit. I've always heard that most of the best memes come from there and, since I've peeked into it, it has not disappointed
@Lord Wivern, they do but watch out. It's ten times as partisan and more heavily bies. I wish you all the luck in finding a new home and hope you comeback one day on an off season :)
@Lord Wivern, never used it before. Have fun! See you later alligator
So long, and good luck
See you space cowboy
Well it’s sad to see you go, but I would say most the memes on this page do cater to the /pol crowd. If you are headed to Reddit, which if you listen to Tim Pool you know where they stand politically too. Sorry to see you go, but I can also understand why you are leaving. I think Reddit vs 4chan will never die though, but hopefully one day they can co-exist.
@PROC DUDE, at least reddit is divided into so many subreddits that an overall balance is managed.
@Lord Wivern, I wish you the best of luck on reddit, just know that it's lead and used by the left mainly. Most even moderate posts are downvoted to hell. Just prepare yourself for extreme partisanship, especially in the "popular" tab. But if you are a lefty then you will have a great time pissing on trump with everyone else.
This is making me sad.
Not goodbye, but see you later fam
Best of luck broski!
Adios mi amigo
You're reasoning for leaving is valid and i hope you have good life my guy
Wtf is Lord Wivern??
@DavidRomeroBruh, ... and you are?
@Natural Sarcasm , I am me, who is u?
@DavidRomeroBruh, THIS IS PATRICK!
@seeUpee, wait... is this the krusty krab?
@Natural Sarcasm , no this IS PATRICK
“It’s about me. It was always about me.”
