I just e-mailed this to the guys that run the Gawker Media websites, the editors at the three that I read, and Mark at boingboing (cause I love mark), not sure if any of you caught it, but they had a picture of tubgirl up on their front page for the better part of an hour. (they claim 20 minutes, but if you read their site via RSS, it’s still up)Ã‚Â Luckily, my boss was out of the office today, or else I could have been fired.Ã‚Â Or at least asked why I was looking at such sexy images whilst at work…
I enjoy visiting Kotaku from work.Ã‚Â At least I used to, until I went to the site and found an image of a woman shitting all over herself while sitting upside down in a bathtub.Ã‚Â I will no longer be visiting any of the sites that Gawker Media owns, and I will actively promote my other friends and associates to do the same.Ã‚Â These blogs had been worksafe up to this point, and it’s a shame to see such reputable sites like Kotaku, Gizmodo or Consumerist fall to such depths.Ã‚Â There is a time and a place for everything, and the front page of a video gaming blog is not an appropriate venue for fecal fetishism.
I will point out that this image is STILL being viewed by anyone that uses bloglines or any webbased RSS reader.Ã‚Â It’s now 7:37PM est, nearly 4 hours after the original post.Ã‚Â Deleting the image from your server would be a good start :
Appropriate action in this case is to either fire or remove posting privileges from everyone involved in the posting of the image.Ã‚Â Once appropriate action is taken my stance on the Gawker Media empire may change, but until then…
I say good day sir.

As many of you know, I’m all for the insanity that the internet brings into our lives, and the scarring that it inflicts on people’s minds on a daily basis.Ã‚Â This is something different though.Ã‚Â These are “worksafe” blogs that are trying to pull in as much readership as possible, something that MCS is also striving for… this is why NSFW shit is put behind a cut.Ã‚Â I want you to surf from work / school.Ã‚Â I need you to this.Ã‚Â Since I know that you’re going to be somewhere that people will see your monitor, I don’t post NSFW / NSFM images where you could get fired / divorced / suspended. Ã‚Â This is why there are the <–click here for more –> features on practically every blog known to man.Ã‚Â This is why I felt betrayed by kotaku.Ã‚Â I never would have expected this from them.Ã‚Â Now 4chan…that’s another mindfucking set of expectations 😛Site News on October 15th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Special thanks to casemods for finding, and then telling me about a rather stupid/serious bug with the wordpress backend that MCS is running on. Somehow people were able to overwrite previously uploaded images, which could have gotten ugly. I needed a reason to update everything around here, but was putting it off for fear of breaking something, which is exactly what happened over the weekend.
As some of you have noticed and asked about the the submissions pages is completely dead right now, so I’ll be working on it all night tonight. If anyone around these parts knows of a good wordpress dev, drop me a line, I have a couple plugin / coding requests.
Also, those of you on the RSS feed, another reason I was putting off on updating is the new version of wordpress forces you to visit the site if you want to see behind the “more” cut that’s on all NSFW posts. I guess it’ll bring more traffic to the site, but it pisses me off that there’s no option to just let people stay in their preferred environment.Site News on October 14th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

I most humbly apologize for interrupting you during your time of great enjoyment of this fine site, and I beg your forgiveness, but you see, I have a small request to make, and that is to ask that you find the MCS rss feed worthy enough of your glorious attention, if only for a brief moment. As you see, the site is hovering around the 1,000 subscribers mark, and it would be of great pleasure to find that the numbers to cross this threshold. Again, I most humbly apologize for the interruption.
It’s my b-day today, so feel free to swing by the IRC channel and chat me up, or just simply contact me.
OR, buy me something from my wish list! OMGBBQ!
Oh, and also, MCS’s 3 year anniversary is coming up in October.Ã‚Â Crazy shit, eh?Site News on September 13th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Ok, so I got home last night to find out that lightening had struck my house, killing both my computer’s mother board and my router.Ã‚Â I’ve got both of them on order, but they won’t arrive at mi casa until next week.Ã‚Â Unfortunately, MCS only has enough posts till the 19th.
All 900-15,000 images I had saved up were on my computer :(Ã‚Â I think I need to get myself one of those huge flash drives.Ã‚Â But then I would forget to unplug it, and it would get fried too.
So please, upload some quality imagery, and we’ll keep the site live for another week or two till I can get to my hard drives and make sure everything’s ok on them!

200k hits over the span of a day. Thank you coffee art and internet warning labels. As it’s friday, and I had to stay up till fucking 3 AM last night putting out the fires that the server was causing, I bought myself a case of the worlds finest. So, I’m on Efnet #myconfinedspace or on my IM all night tonight while I look at my own pretty websites. talk to me so I won’t be bored, kk?Site News on August 17th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
As many of you might have noticed, the site has been a little flaky in the last 24 hours.Ã‚Â This is due to Digg / Reddit and every website that leeches their content.Ã‚Â Apparently two different posts were bouncing between the two, and it’s killing the SQL server I’m on.Ã‚Â I’ve had to change the theme to a less sql / image heavy one, but fear not, the features that you knew and loved will be returning.Ã‚Â Maybe.
Anyways, feel free to jump on Efnet #myconfinedspace and chat me up.Site News on August 14th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Look at my farking balls.Ã‚Â Look.
also, speaking of Fark, did anyone notice they just had their 3,000,000 post?
Fuck!Ã‚Â that’s a whole lot of working to be done.Ã‚Â Back when I got serious about MCS, I was thinking that MCS could be a reverse fark. Cause, you see at fark, they make text posts, and then users post images in the comments section, but here at MCS, we post images, and have text in the comments section.Ã‚Â But three million posts?
Only 2,995,103 image posts to go!Site News on August 13th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Had to disable hotlinking, cause we were using about 20 gigs of bandwidth a day. Also, the site was going MIA for hours on end, hopefully this will fix the problems!Site News on August 10th, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Wow, I almost ran out of pictures for the site! Want to know what’s to blame? The x-box 360. That’s what. And guitar hero 2, which I’m totally rocking out with. So, tonight I plan on going out, buying a case of
pig piss beer, and getting to the task of setting up some pictures for MCS. If you want to bother me, please feel free to pull my attention from this mind numbingly fun task. I’ve updated the contact information on the FAQ, so now everyone in the world can contact me via IM :
So give me a few minutes and I’ll be online awaiting your

Just got an e-mail from google, saying that they removed one of my sites from their adsense program due to policy violations.Ã‚Â I had a minor heart attack, and thought “oh shit, MCS just got kicked out, how am I going to pay the $500 hosting bill?!”
Luckily they just kicked out www.dirtylimerick.com because of the ‘adult or mature content’, which I guess I should have seen coming.Ã‚Â So, now it’s exclusively Project Wonderful only for the time being…so if you have the desire to advertise on the site, head on over, there’s free spots still open, and even the ones that have bids are only at 1 or 2 cents.Ã‚Â That site doesn’t get nearly enough traffic.Ã‚Â I may start advertising it on PW or Fark or somewhere to give it the traffic it deserves.
Also, does anyone know what the hell’s happened to Dirty Microbe?Ã‚Â it’s as if they’ve fallen off the face of the planet.Ã‚Â They aren’t returning any of my e-mails, and people are reporting ordered merchandise isn’t being shipped….Site News on July 13th, 2007 by Sorryyoulost | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Please, stop saying ‘How is this possible? I saw this image 3 days before it was posted!’ Let me take an excerpt from the FAQ.

13.) Sweet Raptor Jesus, I found a post FROM THE FUTURE.
Dear God. Be careful of your time traveling abilities, and use them for awesome, and not for evil. Or did you just click on one of the random posts, and came to a future dated post? Only logged in MCS members can access those pages. You see, I like to drink. A lot. You help pay for that (see #10 above) Unfortunately, that means that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll go for days on end without accessing the site, due to alcohol poisoning or being passed out in jail. To make sure that the site doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go Ã¢â‚¬ËœdryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ (get it? heh) I set some posts up to be automagically posted on the site. Fortunately for logged in MCS members, you can get random access to them via the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœrandom postsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ section in the sidebar. Have fun with that knowledge.
Ok, I’ve added in a thing next to the post Author’s Name showing how many posts a person’s made.Ã‚Â Admins will show as ‘admin‘.Ã‚Â Makes sense right?Ã‚Â You get a special title at 25, 50, 100, 150, and 200 posts.Ã‚Â So far, i don’t think anyone’s made it to 25.Ã‚Â I’m having trouble finding a way to show the top 20 authors, but it’s something that I would like to have on the site.
Also, at the bottom of every post there’s a “share this” link.Ã‚Â It’s for e-mailing, digging, redditing, and various other methods of sharing the post.Ã‚Â This is on each RSS post too, so feel free to open it to a new tab and digg it or send posts to friends.Ã‚Â None of the e-mails involved are being saved, so you don’t have to worry about them being spammed or anything stupid crazy like that.
Also, I’m drinkin me some jack tonight, so you know what that means. Instant message me on AIM at : YOURCOOLESTFAN
One day, oh yes, one day, AOL, MSN, Y!, and Jabber will all talk to each other.Ã‚Â Until that day however, this is it!Site News on June 21st, 2007 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
