ForumBuildr Upgrades!

Our own Jalapeno Bootyhole has painstakingly renamed and modified about 45 of our word types for easier use!

The full list would be too long to list in this blog entry, so you can view it here as a spreadsheet.

Other Bugfixes and Enhancements

  • Searching for Word Types is much better. It can now find partial searches (like xbo for Xbox) or even words in the middle of other words. If you were frustrated with it before, give it another shot!

  • If you do a preview on a madlib, the pop-up with the suggestions now includes the @label so you can insert it much easier.

  • You now see 10 results in the search box instead of 5.

New Forum Builds!

We have two New Forum builds since I last posted about them:

Don’t have time to write your thesis? Forgot about that paper due tomorrow? Is your boss going to fire you if you don’t turn in that ad copy soon? Search the internet for things other people wrote and “borrow” their ideas… and then post them here for the rest of us to steal! Throw ethics out the window and spend your time on more enjoyable pursuits (like fapping).

Cellmates is an online social networking web site that enables users to locate and interact with acquaintances from prisons, concentration camps, and even freeway clean-up groups nation wide. With over 40 million members from over 200 thousand detention facilities, Cellmates is the world’s best place to reunite with those precious souls you had hoped you’d never have to see, ever again.

Our current build is Mad Scientists:

Stumped for ideas for your next doomsday device? Can’t figure out the formula behind the Penis-Snatcher™? Idolise Dr. Strangelove? Then unite with your fellow rejected members of the scientific community and plot the world’s downfall over the internet! You’ll be amazed at just how many ways we have of enacting revenge on those physicists who rejected your ideas, falsely stating that they “defied all moral standards of society”!

The Anarchist’s Playbook

I’ve published this week’s forum buildr v2.0 Beta build, The Anarchist’s Playbook.

You know what sucks? Rules. You know what doesn’t have rules? ANARCHY! Here you can trade tips on making homemade bombs, stealing tools from construction sites, analyzing Rage Against the Machine lyrics, and leaving trash at McDonald’s. You’ll be taking down huge corporations and bring down the government in no time.

Our next build will be Plagiaristic Intentions:

Don’t have time to write your thesis? Forgot about that paper due tomorrow? Is your boss going to fire you if you don’t turn in that ad copy soon? Search the internet for things other people wrote and “borrow” their ideas… and then post them here for the rest of us to steal! Throw ethics out the window and spend your time on more enjoyable pursuits (like fapping).

Have fun guys!

Guess what? We published a forum!

This week’s Forum Build is Obscure Phobia Support Boards!

Are you deathly afraid of balloons, or the number 13? Are you so afraid of vomiting that it makes you sick to your stomach? Whether you’re Verbophobic, Coimetrophobic, Methyphobic, or any other sort of phobic, you don’t have to suffer alone. Here at the OPSB you will not be judged or made fun of for your fears, you will be accepted as one of the family. (disregard if you are afraid of families.)

Next week’s build will be Teen Mommies:

Are you a pregnant teen or new teen mom? Teen Mommies is where you want to be! Whether you need advice on finding maternity rave clothes, convincing your babydaddy to talk to you at school, or even whether to fill the baby’s bottle with Regular or Diet Coke, we have tons of great advice from experienced teen moms! Be sure to join in our discussions on “tattoo or not tattoo” and whether your school backpack can be modified for easy baby transport.

P.S. Blog updates are slower right now due to hardcore Episode 2 development.

Girls Advocating Sexual Purity

It’s that time of week again! We’ve just launched Girls Advocating Sexual Purity:

With all the temptations facing girls today, isn’t it good to know that at GASP, we provide a safe outlet for girls? All GASP girls must sign a virginity pledge to participate on our forums, so you know that when you’re chatting with a GASP girl, you’re really talking to a pure, inexperienced virgin. We discuss how difficult it can be to hold back when a boy holds you close, and all the things you can do to alleviate that tension. If you’re a virgin, we really want you at GASP!

Thanks to everyone who helped create this awesome forum. Next week’s build will be Obscure Phobia Support Boards:

We’ve just published our latest build, Rage Against the Moderators:

How many times has this happened to you: You are in the middle of a heated discussion defending your position on furry porn, and the forum moderator BANS YOU for posting a shitty thread! Are you tired of taking it in the ass from your favorite forum’s mods? Tired of constantly having to buy back your account? Share you horror stories with us and together we will STICK IT TO THE MODS. Fuck those guys…

Pretty funny stuff! Next week’s build will be Girls Advocating Sexual Purity!

Faux News

On Sunday night we launched our latest forum build, [b]Faux News[/b].

Tired of being spoonfed lies by the liberal media? Then come join Faux News, where we discuss the truth! The infallible truth, told to us by rich old men. After all, history is written by the victors!

It’s our 36th forum in the game, so we’ve also added A new E-Peen(tm) to celebrate. The name for this one was actually suggested to us by Big Brother! Thanks for that.

Some people noticed that the forum was completely blank at first. This is because Invariel‘s winning stylesheet was blank. Obviously I couldn’t let a blank forum survive forever so today I’ve made it visible, but to celebrate his win I left it that way for over a day.

Our next build is RAtM: Rage Against the Moderators, (which has a very similar acronym to an upcoming forum in episode 2!). Here’s the description:

Internet Movie DoucheBags

We’ve just launched our latest build, Internet Movie DoucheBags:

Do you constantly argue about movies? Is your ego directly correlated with other people’s opinions of your favorite film? If so, you’ll find yourself at home among the Internet Movie DoucheBags (IMDB). Mock the tastes of your obviously misguided companions, nitpick every detail of movies that most people only bothered to watch once, trade inane celebrity gossip, and use pretentious film-school terms to defend the movies you like.

ForumBuildr Stuff!

I’ve just published our latest forum build, Great Firewall of China. It is incredibly hard to beat. I figured that we have more than enough existing community forums to cover the regular spread of difficulty, why not bring it up a notch and see how you guys do?

I will give out E-Peen(tm) to anyone who beats it before Episode 2 is launched. It’s that hard!

Here’s the description of the forum:

Sorry excellent friends of the hallowed chairman! You no access internets because we despise capitalist spears of effluence! No googles! No Yahoos! No journalisms! Very Limited Porn Video Movies! All your intarnets are belong to our massive firewall! You not allowed trying go around wall reaching many other nonlegal webcities. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSTITUTED.

Our next forum will be Internet Movie DoucheBags

One more thing…

Jalapeno Bootyhole just added over 70 new avatars to ForumBuildr. Should make the enemies slightly more exciting eh?

Our Strangest Forum Build ever?

I just published Dolphin Love, and I think it’s the strangest forum we’ve ever built. Here’s the description:

Do you like dolphins? What about whales? Come discuss your favorite Cetaceans with us! Post beautiful pictures of Duskys, Orcas, Bottlenoses and more in our friendly forums. Dolphins are so beautiful and graceful. I love them so much, and so should you. If you don’t love dolphins, come in anyway, and see what you’re missing. Dolphins have prehensile penises! HOW HOT IS THAT?!

Next week’s build will be Great Firewall of China:

Sorry excellent friends of the hallowed chairman! You no access internets because we despise capitalist spears of effluence! No googles! No Yahoos! No journalisms! Very Limited Porn Video Movies! All your intarnets are belong to our massive firewall! You not allowed trying go around wall reaching many other nonlegal webcities. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSTITUTED.

Also, new ForumBuildr tools!

We’ve upgraded ForumBuildr a bit for our Episode 2 development and we figured we’d pass the new features on to to you guys right away since they seem pretty stable!

There are two new modifiers you can apply to words. One is ::s, and it makes a word type plural. So:

@penis::s would produce “pork swords” or “penises” depending on the random word. It’s better than just appending an “s” at the end since it will properly do the “es” where appropriate.

The second is ::ing, which gives you the present participle of a word type. This is usually the same as adding on “ing” to the end, but again it’s more clever about it.

@vomit::ing would produce “barfing” for example.

Finally, we have [nl] which can be used to insert new lines into posts.

Have fun with them guys!
