What a coincidink :O
Well I choose all three. HAHA!
And IAB is an aggregator, it samples the internet. We are discussing sample representation and taste.
- eBaum was once a week (and dead. And stole.)- Cracked (sister site) has lots of articles, linked here form time to time- College Humour: Cracked has articles, CH has videos
IAB is pretty much one of the only sites (oh yeah... digg, but the format is just, bleh, commercial) that aggrogates just about everything from the net, thats what made it great in the first place.
As you said, you are finding the right balance.
Right now IAB seems (to me) to be a diluted fratboyesk, graphjam, failblog, it doe snot know what it is.
Pree june july 2007, we had everything from "the Lonely Astronaut" (flash) to Fast RC cars, to news stories of fail and Win.
To me, IAB was the site you`d go for "HEy! Check out what I found in this obscure part of the net!"
It still has some of that, but again, there is a lot of what is everywhere.
fancy tried intellectual when he first started on this and everyone complained then too AND the site got way less hits and failed completely. there`s no pleasing you people! lol
also, i dont get this pic :/
how can you not?!
it says 3f arts. 3farts.
5 new submissions a day, usually popping up at around 12:15 am Eastern.
IAB has gotten bigger, but not necessairly better.
As can be seen from Alexa:http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/i-am-bored...
- Actually, it went to poo when Buddy (Original Fancylad - like the Black Stig) sold IAB and it was seperated from www.youthink.com
Scince then, yes, more content, but less quality. Everything is like an offshoot from Break.com and whatever is leftover after a college fratboy party.
It`s just... bad and so very less "intellectual" if thats actually possible.
However, I do enjoy the Pic collections - and the contests where a great addition, captions, etc, even without prizes.
What I miss the most though is the unmoderation. You say something, damage done, you`re a jerk, people will treat you like one, try getting a word in.
The Comments moderated themselves and intresting things started popping up, like police trolls who would point out an idiot who kept slandering untill they stopped posting.
