Me and internet funeral

Hey, FUCKER here. For the people who actually remember me, yes I’m still alive. If you’re wondering why I stopped posting, it was a combination of things, but it was mostly caused by my deteriorating motivation to do anything recently. When I first started this community, I was always excited to hear people’s funny thought on the random images I’ve uploaded. Hearing people’s stories motivated me to keep growing this community to what it was. But like everything I touch, I was burnt out. I was (and kinda still) in a period of my life where I had no motivation to do anything in my life. I’ve stopped doing what I loved and started to regret the action I’ve done in the past. Because of that, I’ve stopped being active here and took a mental break for a while, hence the inactivity.

I’ve decided that I don’t really wanna keep posting here anymore. I don’t have the mental motivation to keep this up, so I’ve decided to make a proposition for the community.

I’m willing to let someone else manage this community while I’m gone. They will moderate and upload content to the community for me. If no one wants to take management, then I will shut down this community.

While I do think this sounds a bit harsh, I do think that this is necessary for this community. If someone doesn’t actively moderate, then this community will turn into a generic /c/196 clone. This wont be a popular decision, but I think it’s the best option we got.

Before I go, I just wanna say thank you to anyone who contributed to the community. From the commenters, to the posters, I’m glad we could make an interesting and unique community for Lemmy.

As my token of appreciation, I’ve linked my archive of posts from the original /r/internet_funeral subreddit for you guys to share. This is what I’ve been using for the past 7 months to post here, so I hope you enjoy it. :)

Thanks for everything

Goodman,

I love this community, such a unique vibe. Thanks for all the posts and all the best FUCKER hope you recover.

leviathan,

I’ve earned a lot of compliments and found good people at my workplace thanks to using your uploads as my computer’s lock screen. Thank you so much for your work, and while I won’t be up to the task myself I really hope to see this community survive, and for you to find peace wherever else.

This the only thing that keeps me on lemmy. I will happily moderate if no one else would like to. Please don’t shut it down

fucker,

I think @FQQD will do fine. The best thing you can do is keep posting content.

Thanks for making it easier for me to ditch Reddit. Of all the fuckers out there, you’re a real one

Good luck, and take care! Thanks for maintaining a unique community, hope you come back!

SandLight,

Thanks FUCKER for creating and nurturing this weird little garden. Thank you for not letting this turn into r/surrealmemes or any other nameless repetitive meme hole. You will be missed, but you are more important than this community and you need to do what’s best for you.

LolaCat,

This was my favorite Lemmy community, even if it does continue on it wouldn’t be the same without you. I wish you the best of luck on your mental heath journey.

So long Fucker, and thanks for all the fish :)

Hey man I loved seeing your posts, but I understand if you need to stop to take care of yourself. Thanks for making my days a little more surreal.

You prepared us for this. We are already wearing black. o7

Not so funny joke aside. I created my account on “reddit exodus” days, and thought that this place has neat potential. Now that enough time has passed and the migration craze has settled, I decided it is time to see what has grown. I have to say… I am impressed. I was afraid that this place would be overrun by bots. It is ironic that on internet pages named after death, life has grown.

Stern,

I know that feel brother. Best of luck with whatever you do.

I have loved this community since you started it, although I was mainly a silent lurker (sorry about that!). I loved the surrealist/absurdist slant as opposed to just garden variety memes easily found elsewhere. As much as I’d hate this community to close, I agree its Identity should be preserved, so I sincerely hope you find someone able to take over moderation.

I hope you’re able to find motivation again, or at least recover from your burnout and start feeling a bit better soon. I don’t know exactly what you’re going through, but I know for a fact that your posts here have enriched the lives of many people. I hope you’re able to take at least some solace in that.

Take care of yourself, and I hope to see you around again at some point.
