[QUOTE=Khaos23;18850163]Wow, just because I joined in '09 makes me a complete retard? I only found out about this website at the start of the year. So what? In 2008 did you call people '08ers and say they were stupid? What about 2007? [/QUOTE] It's funny because you're exactly right.
Only thing I miss is the Zing and Winner ratings.
[QUOTE=Khaos23;18850163]Wow, just because I joined in '09 makes me a complete retard? I only found out about this website at the start of the year. So what? In 2008 did you call people '08ers and say they were stupid? What about 2007? If you say all that shit you're just stuck up and need attention.[/QUOTE] It just seems to me that the majority of 09ers are pretty dim but that majority is either trolls or people who are completely illiterate. The rest are fine and should have been here for the fun the past few years.
Old FacePunch sounded kind of scary, I had a friend once say that people would be banned for making stupid spelling/grammar errors. Although Smartness sounded pretty fun to have lurking over your posts.
09ers can properly be picked on if they joined after January 8th because they never saw the smartness system, the classic rating system or the old custom forums (when you could post in them).
You have spent far too long thinking about this.
Garry want to make all of us Gold Users so he can rape us in Gold Users secret forum.
[QUOTE=bobste;18789806]you're thinking about this too much get a girlfriend[/QUOTE] This is true.
Mid-late 06 was greatness, joined in 07 and got a taste of the system myself. Mid 08 it crumbled. But I can't say I dislike it here, now. Not at all.

You forgot sporks insanity.
[QUOTE=MachiniOs;18856319]You forgot sporks insanity.[/QUOTE] Spork went insane? I've noticed a trend of people who've been on this forum going insane...
[QUOTE=Orsenfelt;18789795]You're an 09'er, what do you know? Shaddap and get to the back. See, elitism [B]is[/B] alive and well. [highlight](User was banned for this post ("Join Date Elitism." - RayvenQ))[/highlight][/QUOTE] Wow you're cool, you joined an internet forum 3 years before him and have wasted 3 years of your life since posting about how great you are to have joined 3 years ago. Real cool.
[quote]a massive flood of next generation "09ers" joined the website, and became synonymous with stupidity, bad threads, spelling and grammar errors, posting in the wrong section, being extremely uneducated, and being 12 years old[/quote] OP is from August 09. Unless its alt.
Hey does anyone remember "FacePunchIsAwesome"?
oh god this song brings back memories
can't wait untill 2069 :P
[QUOTE=radioactive;19175416]Hey does anyone remember "FacePunchIsAwesome"?[/QUOTE] Obviosly he was a attention whore.
Look at my join date. January 2nd 2006. Had I not been lurking and just joined at least 2 days prior to that day I would have been a 05'er. Did I ever complain about it? No. I've been through all that join date elitism stuff. Also for some people, the year they join is also probably the worst year to experience since they're so new to the community. Quite frankly, it seems like the lower the join date you have, the more it shows your loyalty to this forum. It somewhat shows that you've been on this forum long enough to experience it well, and that you will follow the rules.
The forum is in a downward trend from its inception. It was lenient then tight now back to lawlessness. Also everyone is this thread is younger in join date than me, so shutup you have no right to be a join date elitist.
Wow, a 09er yourself (my account got banned for no reason, got to get it unbanned. was a 07 or 08 i think) and you have 2,000+ posts [highlight]SAD[/highlight]

Hmmm.. i really thought this was obvious. I guess not.... -The maturity of a member, their activity, the quality of their posts and how good they are at entertaining others in a wide variety of threads is [b]NOT[/b] directly proportional to the join date, postcount, reputation, type of membership or ammount of donations. However, using smug smilies DOES make you look cool. And naturally, I do agree with myself, so i've taken the liberty of rating myself "agree". :smug:

I lurked way back in '05 but was so scared of getting banned I only made my account in '07. :ohdear:
I miss the original FacePunch, but things change, people (i.e. Garry) change.
There are many plans in this world, and the plans of such beings are best left disclosed. There was once a man who wanted to go to the sun, so he grew wings and flew. As he got closer, his wings burned, and he died. Moral, don't intervene in the domain of beings.
[QUOTE=Benlecyborg;18856202]I agree. Ever since the removal of the smartness system and the fact there are a lot more soft bans. Facepunch has started to decline. Hopefully the new Facepunch mods are promising and will provide a fun, disciplined forum.[/QUOTE] fun and disciplined don't go hand and hand, honey.
[QUOTE=Spork-Juct;18790002]That's because forum rules are less strict than before, even though I wish they still were as strict, because none of these "influx of retards" would have been stopped before it even started, and now it is completely out of control.[/QUOTE] Fascist. oh wait

[editline]11:26PM[/editline] My original account got banned for a shitty reason Damn you hezzy
