Loyalty (truthful version)

Recommended Posts

Dear Community members,

A lot has transpired since the Yugioh Card Maker forum was first conceived nearly thirteen years ago. Many of you may be too young to remember, or too old to not forget, but the early days laid the foundation for an okay forum with about a dozen or so active members who enjoy it today. Founding members like Frunk, Danilus, and YugiohMaster444 had an undeniable passion for the game of Yugioh that made the Forum a decent side-show to the site's namesake cardmaker. The dedication to card making was so intense that there were more new threads created each day than Falling Pizza could possibly review, and sometimes, late at night when Pizza couldn't sleep, they would log onto the forum and find comfort in a meticulously-considered deck-post, or a carefully composed fan-fic. The forum was in its heyday.

But the genesis of the forum was not without its share of strife. Some shitposters made the YCM community a perennial target of 4chan. For several dark months - periods of which have been blocked out of Pizza's memory entirely - hours were spent every day deleting 4chan's standard style of raids by the thousands. But through all of this, the YCM community persevered. The bond that had been formed around the card game, and the collective commitment to creation, could not be severed by the attention-seeking antics of a select few. The community was made stronger by the adversity, and thirteen years later...

Our cardmaker is not the best, because YCMaker never bothered updating it, and still hasn't; that would be either Yemachu's maker, or Magic Set Editor. It isn't the most well designed, because it still doesn't have pendulums or links. It isn't the most efficient, because you have to hit generate every time instead of other makers (Yemachu) updating your card's information automatically. It isn't the most responsive for this same reason. And it sure as fuck isn't the most aesthetically pleasing.

There will always be those who seek to divide us; except there won't because nobody on NCM cares about splitting a community. There will always be those who seek to imitate our software and community; and do it better because the programmers and admins give a shit. Only one card maker was used by Chief Keef, Tom Brady, and other yugioh fans worldwide, because it was the only one so you really had no other option. I'm sure you're just as proud to be a part of it as Falling Pizza is, despite their absolute radio silence ever since then since they just love this website so fucking much.

As we enter the same shit as always, I ask that you keep our storied history in mind.

Yours truly,

-Yui

came back temporarily to say yui's mocking is not endorsed by ncm

Obviously not. I'd be quite concerned if it was. And that's fine; I don't need anyone to agree with or approve of my actions. If Torm asked me for instance, "hey go write a hit piece on YCM using Pizza's loyalty thread" I'd be like "no man that's fucked" if you understand what I mean.

Don't get me wrong though. I do want to see this community and website succeed. But if the admins here are YCMaker who doesn't do his job and Falling Pizza who suddenly appears, posts an incredibly wrong post that has caused a non-zero amount of people to be driven away from this site, then never appears again despite having just sung this website's praises, I'm going to mock both of them at every turn I find until they do their job, because they basically write the jokes themselves and I want to share the punchlines. No matter how good the community can be, the success of this website as a whole depends on them actually being admins. Admins not admining is literally why NCM exists now.

Now, follow-up to that not endorsing bit since I too do not want cross-site drama. Anyone who wants YCM-NCM beef to sprout from this, you're shit outta luck. Your beef is with me specifically, not an entire community who has nothing to do with my antics.

Wait, really?  Who?  I'm genuinely curious.  I am Tinkerer, darnit, I need the numbers!

The post was pretty much propaganda and it felt really weird, but most of the people doing stuff on here are are either new YCMers who either wouldn't read it or wouldn't have context if they did (they may take the post at face-value*), or older members who know better and/or won't let it affect what they're doing anyway.  So... who was driven away?

 

*Which isn't necessarily bad, just... misguided.

I don't wanna name names because Winter will probably target them. All imma say is in the wake of the loyalty post at least two people said something to the effect of "this post makes me not want to use that site anymore"

(good job @Falling Pizza, your post has had the exact opposite effect as intended)
