So last week we announced that we were going to be adding user accounts to the site (which we did) and that someone who participated in the roll out was going to win a $10 gift card to Amazon. This is the second part of the contest and we have some more changes.
- The avatar thing is fixed. You can upload your own or use your gravatar and the next step there is going to be a way for us to upload some stock ones for you to pick from.
- When you register there is additional info you can fill in about yourself. The next step there is giving a good way to display the profile on the site (giving you some more fame!)
- And we added ranks. It is based on a complex algorithm cooked up by scientists. As of now we only show the name of the rank next to your name when you comment but we are going to be making it not look like crap and have badges. Here are the order of ranks (lowest to highest) but I am not including how you reach each one.
Here they are (lowest to highest)!
- Harley Quinn
- Mr. Freeze
- Poison Ivy
- Ra’s Al Ghul
So give it a try. You don’t need to register to get a rank (but we are going to make it so you do if you want a badge and a profile and the other stuff we are cooking up). If you have any issues with it post them in here. This is a big deal, people. Every comment you make is an entry. NO SPAMMING!
UPDATE! JENN MARTINELLI WON THE DRAWING!
Because I can’t leave well enough alone (and because Bryan Headrick is an awesome developer and you should all hire him) I am starting a new thing where the commenting on the site is going to become more flexible and also add some User Account features. I can’t go into a ton of detail yet but suffice to say that participation will be rewarded in more ways. We are just working out some particulars so when it launches it actually works instead of most of the things I do. Now that I have someone to help me I can spend more time coming up with good ideas and less time executing them badly. So this is a win for everyone, really.
And the first piece of the puzzle is the Facebook thingy you will see down below. Now, I would never replace the comments section with Facebook’s. I happen to think Facebook is like AOL used to be and will go away eventually. But in the meantime it is ubiquitous and this new feature will let you comment with your Facebook account and have the comment actually work in the post itself. I think, anyway.
And since me typing “test” 47 different times is not going to be very helpful, I am going to run a drawing where anyone who comments using the new feature (or the existing one) today or tomorrow is entered into a drawing to win a $10.00 Amazon gift card. You will get it in your email and use it for whatever weirdo thing you want. Sweet deal, no? So get yapping. And if you can’t think of anything to talk about then just talk about TV shows or cooking or TV shows about cooking.
I was gone all week and now I have some kind of terrible illness and ate some zinc and every time I cough I die. And if I actually die then I guess I will leave the site to whoever the funniest commenter is. That seems like a good punishment. THINGS JUST GOT REAL! *coughs feebly, cries*
Third Place goes to elssar in the Jessica Biel Texas Chainsaw Massacre Gif post.
“Seriously I don’t know what I’m going to do with 100 something gifs of Jessica Biel in her underwear.”Hey, what happened to your arm? You sprain it or something?
“Suck the hairspray out of Donald Trump’s sweaty comb-over” was already taken.
This week’s cat thing is this!
As for comments? We have Angela Mia on Friday Nineties in third place with one of the longest comments ever (size matters)
“…like going bareback in a crack house with someone you can’t see under a blanket.” Oh my! Definitely sounds like you are speaking from experience there!
Funny that you insist on using the word “boner,” though. I never did understand that. I mean, there are no bones in the penis. At least not in human ones.
Anyway…. you forgot to mention these great tunes:
The Gym Class Locker Room Blues
I Swear, I Just Have to Pee from the album Slumber Party Wake-Up Call
Or my all-time fave, I Don’t Want You, Doctor (But That Glove Sure Feels Nice)
[Note to Self: Find a new crack house]
In second place we have Cornmeal on the Today in History with Eva Halloween: Carnival post. Why? Because even though he works here he rarely comments so whenever he does it is a big deal. His pearl of wisdom?
Tough competition indeed. But the winner this week was…..
Pretty good week. Especially considering that I found out I might be losing my most loyal team…guy. DON’T GO, CORNY! Oh, and since it’s caturday (just like every week when I do COTW) I decided I would do some cat related award every week. This week is the “Best Book Cover with a Giant Cat On It” The Meek, by Brad Poynter.
I hope I can come up with a good category for next week. Heh. Category. Anyway, here are the best of the week.
Number Three: Elssar on I Solved the Immigration Problem “What this plan will do is gather the criminals of two countries together, and give them the space to create a new nation for themselves. A New Australia, of North America”
Number Two: From last week’s “Comment of the Week” superman Brendan O’donnell gave us:

Internet Satalite Computer
Hey !!! Bro’s & Babes
I am still trying to post this Madly Amazing
Web Site on my FaceBook page 4 youse !!!
But the all time winner of the week isssssss.
This was a pretty good week.
- Stacy Frazer came in third with her gem on the King of Wishful Thinking post. “I never knew Penn and Teller had a band!!”
- PelvicBoogie places again with this from Spongeknob Squarenuts: “SpongeKnob sounds like a condition old perverts get from beef wrangling mad cows.”
But the big winner of the week comes from the Kendall Neuner post (that post just keeps on ticking).
Guess what cats, when we are in our 60′s, 70′s, 80′s we will ALL look like a big bag of skin. Tattoos or not. Who sees an 80-year-old man/woman and says, “That dude/chick would be HOT except for those tattoos!” NO ONE. So stop hate on people who express themselves skin deep. And she is beyond hot. – EternitiesForever
Who knew that the defense to the “you will regret those tattoos when you’re old was “old people are gross anyway so whatevs!”
