"@ markust123: I saw your comment, but it was irrelevant, and douchey."

I took the time to repost a comment. I`m not going to do that to be a douche. He`s dressed like a box of cigarettes (Fags). My comment ruled!

@ markust123: I saw your comment, but it was irrelevant, and douchey.

I do however approve of your choice of beverage.

Zywiec is indeed a fine Polish brew. Because of the large Polish population in my hometown, many bars carry it.

I got banned once for posting a picture just because a mod thought it was real. You know, one of those real pictures of real zombies.

The father in this picture is a bigger douche than anyone who has ever submitted content to IAB.

Here`s what i don`t understand. If you open the submissions and lets say 500 is an accurate number because i don`t know. How long does it honestly take to look through them all? Could i do it on my own? no, but i with the help of even 3 others could get it done within a reasonable time, i don`t see why submissions are getting overlooked. Especially since kitteh said she looks for posts just from the "good" posters. Like half of what`s been put ON the site is good..

I`ve been to this site for a LONG time, well before i made this profile. By now i just look at the ones labeled [pic] for a quick chuckle and unless any other titles spark my interest i don`t bother anymore.

(on a side note, yes, i was pretty young when i first found this site)

Kitteh, I am not mad at you either, as there are very few of us "old folks" on this site.

But to be fed the company line of verbal pap, after seeing it fed to so many others was too much.

If you`re right, and what you say is accurate, then that`s great. It neither changes, nor improves anything. Fact is, since Fancy now has to answer to corporate overlords and attorneys, this site has suffered content-wise.

Regardless of any explanations as to what`s happening here, I feel a duty to point out that I have seen mods treat regular, long-time users like crap. I`ve seen banhammerings that were nothing more than a mod getting revenge on someone he or she didn`t like. (Was subjected to it myself once)

So for what it`s worth, I will accept your explanation, albeit with a gran of salt. I learned a couple of years ago that disagreements with IAB mods usually end badly for the user.

Once bitten, twice shy.

If there is such an overwhelming amount of submitted content, why are you submitting content yourself at all? Valid question, I think. I understand if you happened upon it during your normal browsing, but still.

I realize you aren`t (and I agree with some of whom are on your list)

I was frustrated at times myself as a submitter before becoming a mod, so I understand. It is frustrating being a mod at times too. (long story)

The common bond that keeps us together is some weird love for I-A-B. We just keep coming back.

Kitteh, I`m not mad at you or anyone else on this site (well with the exception of Gerry, OldOllie, Madest, Klamz, Daveymid, Collegebound, fancy etc. >-().
I`m just frustrated as I know many others are.

Thanks for the explanation Kitteh, but I think this explanation is long overdue. You have a lot of people who are also volunteers frustrated and upset at the appearance of impropriety. This is why I made the suggestion that mods shouldn`t be allowed to submit content. (or at least don`t do it with a mod account ;-) ) Also it might be time to consider upgrading the site if you want it to survive. I know you do not have control over the site, but if the users do not feel the site is working they will go elsewhere.

I am not trying to argue with you. I am merely defending myself from the accusations you made and giving you proof of origin.

I like you & MrPeabody both. I have approved submissions from both of you many times before. You both have sent in good content.

Had I known you had sent this in before I posted mine, I would have gladly posted yours instead. Sometimes more than one person likes the same thing and we get it submitted dozens of times. No exclusive finds on I-A-B.

Too bad you guys can`t tell who approves your submissions...

To answer your question.
I didn`t say we `can`t` view all the submissions...we could (given proper time & if we got paid to do that)
I said we `don`t` view all the submissions. Here`s a few examples why:
Mods open the suggestion link and BOOM 500 submissions are there. You:
A)Watch every video no matter how horrific (500x average 3 minute vid)
B)Sift through them scanning for submitters who turn in decent posts (missing a few occasionally, because you are scanning)After plucking good ones you notice, you go look for more online.
C)Start looking through them all and, after 30 of them turn out to be broken links and/or advertisements and/or porn, you give up and go to other sites looking for content on your own.
Another issue is when the system gets backed up, Fancy will delete older submissions because the list gets overwhelming at times. Also we can look at submissions like them, approve them, and they disappear because of computer glitch

and lose where they were from and who submitted them.

You are correct on how I found orasis` submission by searching his submissions only,by his name, BUT there is no way to search for a submission by title or subject BEFORE it is approved, And here`s the kicker...the submissions you guys send in aren`t dated UNTIL we approve them.

I didn`t design this system.

We support the system. The system is not perfect and neither are we.

Thank you for relieving me of the obligation of pointing out the flaws of logic in Kitteh`s explanation.

Also Kitteh, It did not take you long to find osirisascend`s submission when called out on it, so it would seem you could have checked to see if anyone had already submitted it before you posted it. I also realize that maybe you just looked at osirisascend`s submissions, but it still makes sense that if you found something, probably someone else did as well, and may have submitted it. It would seem the site has some mechanism for determining who submitted a post first, so it would seem logical that it would apply to mod posts as well.

@ Kitteh: I was banned once under bullsh*t circumstances... For some mods here, IAB is their own little personal fiefdom.

I`m not going to get into an argument with a mod... especially one with favored status, that`s just a losing proposition for a mere user like myself.

I consider the subject closed.

I do have a question and a comment:
"Your submission was buried in the tons we get...it wasn`t noticed...we don`t view every submission when so many come in everyday."

You and other mods seem to have plenty of time to search other sites for content yet ignore the submissions to this site, so why should we even bother to spend our time submitting content if the mods won`t even support the system?

Simple answer would be that mods shouldn`t be allowed to submit content. Obviously you have more than enough submissions to support the site as you can`t even look at all of them.

I was not attempting to be sarcastic, merely truthful. You said you submit to other sites so perhaps you did submit this somewhere else. I was just saying it may have been yours.
You on the other hand are being sarcastic, hateful, and condescending. In every comment. You accuse without evidence or investigation. I offered to show you the link and you don`t attempt to even look, or talk to me directly.
I never mentioned banning you. I have no reason to. I just wish you could see what you said in your previous remarks were inflammatory, mean and unnecessary.
Here is where I got the picture. (notice the hyphen)

Banned? Yeah, that`ll do a lot. The last mod that got butthurt and gave me a B.S. ban had it reversed by Fancy in less than two hours.

I don`t commit "ban-worthy" offenses on IAB and never have. If I get banned, it`s because Kitteh didn`t like getting called out. (kinda like my go-around with maddog a couple of years ago). I`m going to assume that she`s not as vindictive as he is... we`ll see.

@ Kitteh: You said: "You may have submitted it to the other site I got it from...since you submit everywhere."

Snarky sarcasm fail. Good attempt though. Unfortunately your "explanation" doesn`t hold any water.

It`s a moot point. I already said I will no longer submit, but I will continue to comment on posted comment whenever I please.

I did not and have not ever `hijacked` your submissions or anyone else`s for that matter.
I found it on another site and hijacked it from that site hyphen and all. If you write to me I will give you the link so you can see for yourself. (my email is on my profile)
I looked at submissions and yes you have submitted this link...with a DIFFERENT but similar title: Father Of The Year - Halloween Style
Your submission was buried in the tons we get...it wasn`t noticed...we don`t view every submission when so many come in everyday. We try but sometimes some slip through.
So no hijacking took place, you just got missed, and I saw it someplace, thought it was cute, (which it is) and posted it. No harm was meant.
You may have submitted it to the other site I got it from...since you submit everywhere.

No "Occupation" of IAB Headquarters is necessary.

I would have assumed that Kitteh had found the pic first and posted it. No harm, no foul.

I always make it a point to make my "headlines" slightly different than regular ones... In this case, instead of "Father Of The Year Candidate (insert # here)", I specifically mentioned Halloween, and I have a habit of using hyphens where they really aren`t necessary.

If she hadn`t hijacked the headline too, I never would have noticed that she was taking credit for my submission.

There are other sites I submit the same content to. Kitteh can just go to those sites and get it all from there... I use the same screen name and avatar on all of them, so it should be pretty easy to cherry pick. It will also save me the trouble of bothering to submit it here.

Yeah I`ve had posts hijacked but I`ve also been credited for posts that I had nothing to do with, so i just assumed the whole system is a bit glitchy.

I stopped submitting content months ago, there`s no point. I mean I can understand with something like an upcoming meme where a lot of people will be sharing it, but even if it`s a really obscure youtube video with like 100 views, a mod will always `happen to have submitted it first`. Guess there`s no point in getting annoyed, at least the content makes it to the front page (which is more than can be said for a lot of good submissions) but it just seems... petty.

Nothing worth getting worked up over, but just thought I`d add my two cents.

@ elkingo, onyxSATVIL, and xCYBERDYNEx: I pretty much dismissed the claims others have been making for years, because it never happened to me. I assumed that so many people submitted the same content that the first one was the one that got posted, proper credit was given to the submitter, and that was that.

I`m a little disappointed that a mod here would engage in the exact behavior I have defended them against here in the forum... Makes me look like a complete ass... I won`t ever back them, or Fancy up on this issue again.

I wonder how much content Kitteh actually finds on her own, and how much she just takes credit for.

@osiriascend -- I think the bigger question here is, "Why would you feel the need to steal someone`s submission." It just comes off as lame.

Hmmm... I submitted this WAY before Kitteh got her hands on it... She changed my snappy one sentence description, but didn`t change my title... not even the hyphen. Not cool mods.
