Mentalpatient87: Has there ever been a generally positive reception to these things? Because these Fark TV re branded videos seem terrible enough to be you Jose Cuervo Cue Moment of the Week. Brought to you by Gawker media and the Daily Mail./and Carl's Jr.
DuudeStanky: mikerylander:What would you do? Be super superficial and pretend you were there all along? Do the "backwards hat, 'hey guys, I'm one of you!' bullshiat you're talking about? No way. I have no pitch. I'm not the man. I'm just a guy making a show. I'm not posting this comment on "company time" or "on the clock." I'm not some sort of paid social media manager or some bullshiat.I'm not on salary and this interaction isn't some paid social media stunt bullshiat. I'm having this conversation on my own time because I'm generally trying to connect to the community, and, as I always do on the internet, and in life, I'm over sharing about myself so that Farkers are like, "oh, he's a just a dude like me, trying his best."If you view me as suit guy with a backwards hat, then I guess I can't do much about that.But that's definitely not me...Damn near everyone on this site is an alt, so learn from them to gain their acceptance. Play a role, take on a persona.. something. Just knock it off with the breaking the fourth wall stuff by saying "I'm an outsider! I have a real-life job and I get paid to make these videos."What is your role going to be in this community?Who are you going to be in this picture?
mikerylander: He's a pretty well-respected alt-comedian, so yeah, it's disheartening how quick this community is to hate on everything sometimes.

Brought to you by Gawker media and the Daily Mail./and Carl's Jr.Well, here's the thing. Remember that kid in high school? The one that thought his jokes were HILARIOUS, but fell flat and died every time? You know that guy. He'd tell the same damned joke in a thousand different ways. Because he found it funny, he figured everyone would find it funny. But they didn't. So he did it over, and over, and over, and over again, all in slightly different ways, fully expecting people to finally "get it". What he never understood is everybody "got it", they just didn't want it. The problem wasn't in how he was saying it. It was what was being said. It just wasn't funny. The only thing common to every failed retelling of the joke was HIM.FarkTV is like that. It doesn't understand why we don't "get" the sweat and the dead man's balls. We got it ages ago. We just don't want it.
Cpl.D: SuperDeluxe. Fark TV.
Cpl.D: And a constructive note: You wanna get some views? Go down to Lexington and interview Henry Earl. We haven't heard from the good man in far too long.
mikerylander: To be honest, there is a lot of good, "real" feedback coming outta this thread.Which is good.Although our viewership is consistently rising as a whole, and our internet-wide viewership doing well, I've always been personally-saddened that the *core* Fark community has rejected us.It's my personal mission to change that.All of the feedback and suggestions given here are being considered. My ego never gets in the way of making good content.
mikerylander: At the end of the day, we just want to be a little piece of the Fark community.We're open for suggestion, we're open for input.But we're here, and we're not going anywhere.So, maybe we all become friends?
AppleOptionEsc: [PictureMentioningSuperDeluxe]I would update, but Ran never posts anymore. Sad really.
Cpl.D: brimed03: Well, that's it: WTFark has officially jumped the shark./let's face it, it was doa anyhowWhat turned you off with it? Was it the sweat, or the dead man's balls?
