Couldn't you start a twitter account or something? I have a high level of trust in your curating abilities, so it'd be nice to keep using you as a content filter :-)

May 24th, 2012

Back in the day before Facebook, I found interesting links on sites like this and shared the ones I got (mostly through IM'ing or e-mailing them between friends) here.

Now with social media, it seems we're all constrained to share between our own networks. I hate to say it, Brad, but you're probably's been a ghost town here. Just don't close stripcreator!

May 24th, 2012

I really enjoy the community here, but I can't really disagree with calling it a day. I think I'd actually look forward to an old fashioned flame at this point.

May 24th, 2012

*flame war

Quick! I made an error! Someone mock me, for old times sake!

May 25th, 2012

benk: I've wondered about maybe converting the site into something automatically generated from some users' Facebook shares or Google Pluses or something.

choad: Stripcreator's staying!

jBot: Nice error, dummy.

Anyway, I'm not in a huge rush to shut the site down and take it off the internet but I'll probably close new user signups so that I at least don't have to deal with spammers anymore.

May 25th, 2012

This site has got to have some sort of e-historical value. I dunno.

May 25th, 2012

Maybe we could do a retrospective, and frontpage some of the way-older links from very early on. At the very least, the ability to rate the links will help weed out some 404s

May 25th, 2012

Oh man, I would be so sad if in4mador was no more.

And I like that retrospective idea, there's some awesome stuff in the archives.

May 26th, 2012

We're really fish over a barrel here.

On the one hand, the comments are awesome.

On the other hand, some the same functionality could be had with a Delicious stack or a Facebook group.

I dunno. It's been a long time since I've shared anything on here but I'm proud of each of my links.

May 28th, 2012

aw, that's kind of sad. i have good memories of this place.

i already collect cool links and stick them in a blog so if anyone else does the same, maybe we could make this a collaborative thing?

Jun 4th, 2012

A tumblr could work maybe?

Jun 5th, 2012

FYI I've turned off new user signups. I don't have any other plans right now.

What do you guys use (if anything) to save/share links?

I'm actually mostly Instapaper and Pinboard these days. With the occasional Youtube favorite and Facebook like here and there.

Jun 6th, 2012

Man, I hate to say this, but even after 9 years of using In4mador, I've been on reddit for the last two. Lately, I've been getting so sick of reddit. It's just a bunch of the same jokes repeated and repeated.

I kind of had some idealistic vision that in4mador could usurp reddit the way reddit did to digg. It would take a lot of programming skill (that I don't have) and if Brad's losing interest... well, what else is there?

Jun 7th, 2012

I could certainly do the programming but the difficult part is getting the influx of people. Reddit seemed to benefit hugely by Digg selling out and crashing and burning.

There'd be nothing wrong with running a nice small quality community blog. Something more like Metafilter than say Reddit or Digg.

I'd be interested in that but if it hasn't happened already I don't know how to get it rolling.

A massive grass roots recruitment campaign by all the remaining users.

Twitters, Tumblrs, Facebooks, G+.

Whatever is had, get it to getting.

Jun 8th, 2012

I usually rely on Facebook for the occasional funny picture or interesting link, but I save the really good, quality sites for here.

Is there maybe a way to have both, but keep them separate? Like a section for a quick image or video link, and another for a larger site worth checking out?

Jun 11th, 2012

A facebook group for the time being, though, maybe?

What say you, Brad? Feel like making one?

Jun 15th, 2012

Sure, I can make a facebook group.

Can someone message me on FB and tell me who y'are. I can't create the group until I have people to invite apparently.


Jun 19th, 2012

If the site has to change, how about something like 1 interesting link per day? That may already be a thing somewhere.

Jun 20th, 2012

If spammers are a bit of a problem, maybe there could be some crowdsourced way to weed them out. Some system where two clicks on a "this is spam" button from confirmed members (say, months-old accounts) for spam comments, or three for links, would hide that particular comment or link for review (and a number of hidden links disable the user?) by a moderator (which you could appoint a few of).

As for the Facebook page, alright, I'm in. And if that page gets some use, is there a way links from there could be harvested by the machine and put on here?

Jun 26th, 2012

I am late to the party here.. but it would certainly be a sad day if this site closed down :/ I <3 you guys

Jul 11th, 2012

So uh... Any progress getting that FB group going?

Jul 27th, 2012

So, Brad's mind seems to have wandered off somewhere (distracted by an electronic butterfly flying around his electronic face, maybe), so I went ahead and created the group:

Right now it's just jBot and me in the Facebook equivalent of a dark alley, so hurry up and join before he stabs me with a shard of broken Like.

Jul 27th, 2012

If we get 2 more, we can play a decent game of hoops, but mom says I have to be home before the street lights come on

Jul 30th, 2012

I has joined.. It can be fun to play "Guess the in4mador handle" with our RL names all up in our faces

Jul 30th, 2012

thegreatkinghal was easy to guess, and so am I (and jBot I already knew), but you (I assume Jeff is you, since you just posted and he/you just joined) would have been harder and I still have no idea who Brandon is.

Jul 31st, 2012

well yeah you and Hal were easy.. however, I have plenty of Cthulhu paraphernalia on my page.. so linking the two wouldn't have been too hard.. Although the thumbnail here seems to be off center

Aug 1st, 2012

Well, I know I haven't exactly been a regular here, but I've kept up with the website for the most part and joined the group on Facebook as well. It'd be a real shame to see a community like this one just up and disappear.

Aug 1st, 2012

Joined! Or at least, I sent my request to join.

Aug 3rd, 2012

eh eskimo.. you seem like a regular to me.. in fact, everyone in this thread has been around as long as I can remember.. other than benk.. I have no idea who that is :)

Sep 26th, 2012

4 months later and we're still rockin, whoo hoo! also, I requested to join the facebook hideout.
