I've abandoned the idea after the whole debacle happened. Odd timing that after I came up with this idea everything went to shit. You guys can go ahead and still do stuff, but I just rather not want to be involved.

So that's the thing, the fact that everything went to shit is actually the perfect time.

This might get long so:
Spoiler:

Now more then ever people are looking for alternative sites to go to. Your only requirement to be liked? Don't be an utter shitbag and discuss video games. The fact people are tired of the whole 'muh sexism' and being talked down to meant all these other sites are popping up that people like cause they're not like the shit they've been getting for years.

It's no secret that I got involved in this whole debacle and I like seeing the ensuing shit show. I think it's great. But out of all that people are doing their own thing and now is the perfect time to get recognized. Heck I write for another site that kind of rose out of the ashes of this drama.

So I built a site purely just cause I had an itch for game humour writing that I wanted to scratch. I really like P4rgaming and when this all happened I wanted to get my sarcasm out so I tried to be half educational, half funny, half shitting on people and I've really loved it.

Now is the perfect time for promotion cause there is thousands of people looking for good sites. They even purposely turn off adblock. My analytics got stuffed up but I got over 1000 people in the last couple of weeks.

I used tumblr as a base and have spent months tweaking it and learning more and more. I threw disqus comments in there (we could use intensedebate probably just like old times) and I have the thing hooked up to analytics and google web manager. So now I get all the data and I also became google searchable. I bought a domain name and redirected it and got my tumblr to display it as well.

Tumblr is also great for promotion and given some of you guys already have decent followers it's just a case of reblogging and hoping others do as well.

I would love to do some kind of site with you guys and I know have enough experience to help. I've been tweaking that much tumblr html that I think I'm getting good at it.

Forgetting the whole shit show, you don't even have to talk about it (in fact you shouldn't) or give it the light of day. You just need to exist and not be shit. Really we all love games, anime, the site can be whatever. It can just be a Giant Weeaboo site, it doesn't matter. Forget what you want the site to be one day, just do something that we can have fun with.

Heck we can make the next halolz if you want. Rofl can have a section of meme of the week where he invents something and we see how far it goes. We can just log us having a conversation and put it up for people to read. We can try be funny, serious, it doesn't matter. I wouldn't worry about trying to keep up to date with news, we're not full time and after getting clicks. I've really enjoyed running a site so far and I think we can do it together.

Let's do something, let's have some fun with it. We can do a load of stupid stuff like the waifu academy, or other RP things. You can throw VA stuff on there as well. Stuff we do with each other for fun, we just upload it to see if anyone else finds it entertaining. It can be the anything site for all of us. We don't need to be all serious. Youtubers don't get popular cause they're serious content.

Let's do this. Let's have some fun. Just pick a name and we'll play around. I think we can have a blast doing this.
