Title: So you want to be a lawnmover?
Post by: Abwayax on August 15, 2009, 07:03:33 pm
So maybe you've noticed a couple of people with a "GCLF LAWN MOVING SERVICE" usergroup. This usergroup was created by someone else to force a meme.

Now apparently some people find it funny. I find it retarded. I figure people are going to ask to be part of the LAWN MOVER group anyway, so I figured I'd do this.

As of now, membership in the GCLF LAWN MOVING SERVICE is open to anyone. Go to the User Control Panel ("Profile") and select "Group Memberships." Now, anyone can be a lawnmover!

The caveat is, because I personally don't like seeing this group on my forum at all, the group will be deleted on September 15, 2009 (one month from now) and all users in the group will be moved back to their former primary group when this happens. The reason for this is because, with so many lawnmovers in GCLF's employ, sooner or later all the lawns will have been moved, eliminating the need for a lawn moving service.

So, enjoy it while you can! :)

Adding a usergroup is easy.

Yep, Admin --> Members --> Membergroups (or at least in SMF 2.0), then add it.

Sorry, but I'm the Lord High Lawnmover, so no.

What about when the lawns need moved back?

Lard turd is the Head Lawnmover, he started the group, so Lord Miller is not the Lord High Lawnmover.

Self-proclaimed titles are never offical so LTMNTYCTMLM is Head Lawnmover and outranks you.

Since it's just you applying the title to yourself, thus it holds no merit among the lawnmovers themselves.

GCLF's so meme-happy that it tries to latch onto anything halfway funny and drive it to memedom, perhaps because it wants to prove that it's as good a community as YTMND or 4chan or any other community powerful enough to tell the internet how to think.

It's almost like some can't wait for the Member+ rank. Some would get it if they'd not get into trouble.

It's kind of funny. It's funniest for me when I go up to my friends and say 'Don't touch my lawnmover!'

So let me get this straight. When the admins force a meme (remember 'THUNDER PUUUNCH'?) it's okay, but when anyone else does they're doing something unspeakably idiotic? In what world does this seem remotely fair?

Yeah, true!

Lawnmover isn't forced, most people like it, but "THUNDER PUNNNN" seemed kinda forced to me.
Title: Re: So you want to be a lawnmover?
Post by: Phrawger on August 20, 2009, 03:19:58 pm
"Thunder punnnnnn" in a few sigs is one thing.

A lawnmover usergroup, user account, images, references and countless posts with the phrase is forcing it.

Thunder Punch was funny. Emphasis on was. I'm sure lawnmover was also funny, but I can't for the life of me remember when because it was so long ago.

Honestly, the best thing for lawnmover right now is to become sort of a background meme like Thunder Punch and all those other ones I can't recall right now. I'm only getting rid of the lawnmover group because it's stretching things a bit too far (Thunder Punch never had its own group; and anyway Lawnmover never really did anything to deserve it) but I would never consider stopping anyone from using the lawnmover meme because I'm for freedom of speech.

I am starting to get Abwayax's point; this meme is too far gone. Let it be, please, lest the world descend into a hellish world filled with mindless slaves of the Internet and all of it's monstrosities.

I've kind of lost interest in the whole meme. I mean its still funny (to a point.) but it doesn't exactly feel the same as when I started it. Also, why haven't you removed the user group Abwayax? I thought you said you were going to.

I gave the lawnmovers a few more days out of niceness (and because whatever was supposed to happen on the 15th couldn't happen).

Of course the fact that people are getting bored of the meme means the plan's working regardless.
