I can't figure out which scripts to unblock.

Consistent.  Our EEO program here at work is invariably headed by the biggest satyriasis cases.

That breast implant pic will haunt my dreams.

*Shudder*

Keep 'em coming Mike. :)

WTFark is this?

Who is Phirman?
 
2014-01-24 03:14:33 PM  
I'd like to know what Phirm is doing tonight. Boobiez!

They start out with good intentions, but then relapse?

I'd like to think that one day we'll be able to hover our mouse over any Fark thread and Mike Phiirman will appear in a box with witty commentary.

Sorry, Uncleacid.  That was my fault.  Won't happen again!

that would actually be funny to watch.

Ok, not bad.  I think attempting to pronounce all of the user names might get clunky and distracting so you might just leave it generic like "one user writes..." or something while displaying their name/post in the graphic like you do.

Phirman seems likeable enough.. He's not bombing, so that's good.  I think some of the writing comes off with a whiff of America's Funniest Home Videos.  Slightly too corny.

Anyway, there's some thoughts.  Good luck.

Who took the stake out of the corpse of Fark TV?

Put it back in, please.

after having watched all 5 of these, i can say they are most definately improving and, if you would get over farktv/superdeluxe they aren't that bad.

I like how the tag graphic spells the HOTY tag as HOTTY.

We opted for Ye Olde English spelling of "Hotty"

But not to worry... that tag is being changed.  Expect a new look for the animation also.

No worries. Wasn't trying to be a spelling nazi.  I just thought I'd draw attention to it in case no one caught it on your end.

No, its awesome!  I appreciate any feedback!  We're trying to make this something everyone here really likes (even though I know we won't be able to please everyone)

Keep it coming!!!
 
2014-01-24 05:21:58 PM  
Not to be way too picky, but I think the tags at the beginning should be a little closer to the originals.

Also, I understand its a free site, and therefore ad-supported... but it would be nice if we didn't have to see a long ad *every* time.  And allow us to skip after X seconds.  Or, if you want to keep it as-is, maybe shorter ads?

Just my $0.02.  I'm digging WTFark!
 
2014-01-24 05:23:31 PM  
Well damn, ignore my last comment... apparently there isn't an ad on this one.  All the previous ones had like a 30-second or so ad that couldn't be skipped.  I posted too soon.

Maybe email users who you plan to use for pronunciation guides in advance, assuming they have an email in their profile.

Also, maybe try slowing down a bit, it feels so rushed. You don't need to drag it out for it's own sake, but the lines don't need to come like Phirman is worried someone is going to interrupt him.

I think you're doing a fine job and Mike Phermin is a good representative of the Fark brand. This is definitely shaping up into something substantial. And, you're right, you won't be able to please everyone as is the nature of the internet...

But, since you're soliciting feedback, here is a rough draft of a script:

Intro/Mike Phermin references a Fark Geek tab story/something like; "Scientists question the origin of the Big Bang", etc.

Standing next to Mike is that attractive girl from the other clips + an equally attractive girl standing at his other side.

Girl 1: "I agree with them, Mike, the Big Bang is a seriously flawed theory."
Girl 2: "Helloooo... the Universe is homogeneous and isotropic...well, duh!"
Girl 1: (shocked): "Back up, sista!..the first law of thermodynamics states you can't create or destroy matter or energy, 'aight?!"
Girl 2: (angry): "HOW 'BOUT I DESTROY YOUR MATTER...BIOTCH?!"

Girl 2 shoves Girl 1, knocking Mike off-screen. As they wrestle, they debate with scientific one-liners. Their tops eventually fall off revealing bikini tops, then the skirts, revealing bikini bottoms.
Eventually, they grab pillows and start hitting each other, continuing their debate. Gratuitous camera body shots as they continue to hit each other with pillows and debate. (All SFW).

Girl 1 "Wait, can't we all just along?"
Girl 2: "Yeah, you're right."

They start to kiss.

Enter Mike Phermin with one-liner.

Aaaaaand cut.

Both REALLY GOOD points.  Will def email users for pronouncers (hopefully they get back to me in time).

If these are going to be a daily thing you should pick stories that have a funny fark headline too, not just funny comments. Fark is three things: headlines, comments, and to some people a community. But the funnier headlines are what bring new people through the door.

I totally agree.  Its hard sometimes to find the right mix of funny headline with funny comments (which we're always trying to include) and the right type of story (trying to avoid death, destruction, etc).

Anyone with suggestions on good stories to to... please feel bree to email me at w­tfa­r­k­[nospam-﹫-backwards]a­ro­*tv

My name is Bill, by the way.  I'm the executive producer on the show.
