People are not obligated to comment or rate you just because they viewed your profile.
If someone drops by, reads your profile and doesn't say anything, it's probably because of your shitty personality, or they were just having a look in the first place.
Get off your high horse. Seriously.
If you want to have a conversation with people, start one.
Ratings are whatever to me. I do find it a little weird when people constantly view and don't say anything esp. if it's multiple times a day. Are you shy? Scared? Hmm? Sometimes I'll send a random PM just to see if they finally say something ahaha.
we should be allowed to gift people vf points ourselves from the vf points / rewards redemption page js
we shouldn't have to do additional tasks in sponsored cults to gift others with vf points when we've already technically "earned" the points we've got handy
I'm not saying to get rid of the option in sponsored cults as many members earn more / prefer that method, buuuut the rest of us who have vf points collecting dust should be allowed to distribute vf points to others, preferably in a similar setup to how we gift others premium so that it doesn't become another responsibility for Matt or other admins to look after
there are about a dozen ways I can think of that I could use my vf points (ways that could actually help boost site activity) as prizes in cult promotions / contests, monthly rewards to cult staff for their regular presence, random giveaways where anyone could win so on so forth and imo any of those options would be a better use of my vf points than the options currently available to me (that work anyway)
Transylvania90210[online][reply] hey jetJanuary 27, 2015, 12:13mNot all the time, sometimes I have to send 75 messages to myself cause there was no one to talk to. Plus the flood control makes it annoying >.< Pretty sure that's against the rules.
When you click the link for a YouTube video and realise there's a 30-second advert to sit through first, do you go "Oh boy! My cup runneth over!"?
When you get a phonecall and it turns out to be a "Steve" (clearly short for "Steveaneesh Ramaputra from Chennai") who's really keen to tell you about how you are lucky enough to qualify for a special deal on loft insulation, does your gusset become moister than the Mediterranean?
And do you click on "Top Journals" going "Oh, boy, oh boy! I hope it's ADVERTS today!"? And, on seeing them, do you spontaneously spray so much semen over your keyboard that you'll never manage to get the space bar working properly again?
The chance are that you probably don't. Sure, there probably are some sick freaks out there who love that sort of stuff but they're probably on a par with those who like having their scrotums impaled on stiletto heels. They are welcome to their odd little world, but let's not try assuming it should be inflicted on the wider mass of humanity, right?
When you put a cult banner on VF and prop it up the rankings, I'd guess maybe 1 in a thousand to 1 in ten thousand might just think about joining. The remaining 999 to 9999 will, for a fleeting instant, think you're a twat. The drip-drip effect of this on your place in the collective sphere of consciousness must be devastating. Frankly, if you're considering filling up Top Journals with cult banners you might as well get out a permanent marker pen and write "Basically, I'm a cunt" across your forehead.
Admittedly, if someone turned that into a picture and lodged it in a cult banner, I might just join their cult.
this will probs get fails by those who don't like me but eh don't care. won't happen anyways, just wishful thinking.
but i should.
let me explain why.
but first, why i want to be.
my evolution on vf has come full circle. naturally, this is the only thing left for me to do. i've done socializing. i've done cults. i've done many cults. two very successful ones. both being number 1 in their respective categories. one dominating for a year and the other for 2 years. with various other genre cults in between and a few non-genre. i've done design. well, i'm still doing it but it's not very exciting. i've done the "VF Design Team." was even the VF content designer for a brief period. BORED NOW. extremely and painfully. so i think bein an admin would liven this place up for me. a win win situation. contributing to my sad predicament while i contribute to the team. it works. sounds great.
1. INNOVATIVE. can help come up with new and exciting VF Contests and site ideas. really, i'm good at that.
2. LEADERSHIP SKILLS. see above cult domination. that was when i was dedicated. i also tend to help coordinate things in my various places of employment too.
3. GENEROUS. can help with VF contest prizes so you can offer more of a VARIETY thus getting a better turn out of participants and the comfort of knowing that everyone will get their prizes in a timely manner.
4. LOYAL AND DEDICATED. been a member of VF on and off for 7 years now. granted, more people have been on here longer than me but for ME, that's a record.
5. DESIGNER. can help create bitchin new designs for merchandise on the regular. i know, there's the vfdt for that but.. i hear they're quite overloaded right now so i'm JS, i'm just another option.
6. meticulous organizer with a can do attitude.
7. spends 3-4 hours on VF durin work days and longer on off days. and i check vf every chance i get when workin. idk cuz i'm like obsessed or something even tho nothing ever happens. which means plenty of time to get stuff done.
8. UNBIASED when resolving issues. even if i can't stand someone, i'm still cordial with them when it comes to problems. yes, i speak my mind. yes, i get mad and vent. but i can be professional when necessary.
9. gets along well with all corners of vf IF ya know what i mean. i guess you can call me the negotiator. and i say that very generally as a whole. obviously not everyone will like you or get along with you nor will you like and get along with every single person you meet.
10. constant creative faucet. need i say more? i think i mighta said that already in a different way. but this is a reminder.
11. reliable and dependable. like lassie. ol' faithful.
12. even if it's the only thing i would be allowed to do, i would check those tickets obsessively. something about resolving issues gives me good feels. and i would make sure not a one went unanswered. quick to the draw. 24 hour guarantee. NO MAN LEFT BEHIND.
i would also go so far as to say that it's always good to have a wildcard. i've been in trouble before, that's true. got myself deleted. but i've paid my dues, endured my shame, and worked especially hard to regain favor. did everything i was asked to do. donated to vf app fund. contributed to vfdt. earned my keep. isn't shockvalue also a good thing? not a lot but ya know, just a wee bit. YOU WANNA BE ABLE TO TRUST A PERSON TO DO THEIR JOB AT LEAST.
anyway, this is about 60% longer than i initially planned. nobody's gonna read all this holy shit. i'm clearly bored and expect nothing out of this. ;_______;
tl;dr give me admin or give me death.
Not just because I love this cult, but everyone needs homework help in their life!

My brother Geeraert turned 26 today.
So we're having a huge party to celebrate.
Turning 26 might not mean much to most, but it does to him !
Usually Children with his disease don't get much older than 10 years.
So 26 is a REALLY big number to us !!
The cake however is ' Lokeren ' themed cause we won the cup with soccer yesterday , hahahaha.
I myself don't care much about that but, the rest of my family find it a very big deal.
Happy B day bro! I wish you many years more!
And keep on surprising those doctors!
American soldiers are war criminals.
Seven digits - civilians - dead in Iraq since the decade-long invasion and occupation, many times that displaced, ISIS notwithstanding. That's a better than 30-to-1 civilian-to-enemy-combatant kill ratio.
Afghanistan is little better, if significantly less damaging. Figures are murky there, but we're about equal in terms of "enemy" personnel killed and civilian deaths.
And let's not forget the black-clad Hollywood-esque Disney-style pure evil caliphate that's emerged from our genocide in the region. Hello, ISIS, child of Uncle Sam.
The military does not exist to "protect freedoms" or whatever stupid asinine thing you want to spew to justify its existence.
There hasn't been a remotely credible threat to this country since the late 1800s. The only danger your freedoms are in is from your own elected officials and their Orwellian law enforcement agencies.
The American military is a massive genocide machine and literally nothing more.
Contrary to protecting your freedoms, they actively and violently limit them.
That is an actual link to actual ongoing events in Ferguson, MO where the National Guard has been mobilized. Why has the National Guard been mobilized this time? It's not to quell rioting - it's because the grand jury responsible for indicting (or, as the case will be, not indicting) admitted child murderer Darren Wilson will be making their announcement in the coming days or weeks.
This isn't hyperbolic or speculative. The governor of Missouri is deploying trained soldiers ahead of time, so that the foregone conclusion of "no harm no foul" doesn't cause rioting over the state's refusal to prosecute a coldblooded Nazi. There is technically no verdict yet, but a state of emergency has been declared and soldiers are being sent in to terrify people into not reacting.
Really let that sink in for a minute.
That is all your brave hero-soldiers do. Genocide the shit out of the Third World, and back on the homefront, act as an overwhelming show of force to preemptively discourage free exercise of your right to assemble.
Welcome to Soviet Style chilling.
More than 25% of the federal budget is earmarked for the military. That, however, is misleading - in actuality, more than half of all federal funding goes to the military through creative data-fudging known as discretionary spending.
Black kids are murdered left and right by state-sanctioned white pigs in blue uniforms. The military comes in, ahead of time, to frighten you into not reacting to this.
More than 1 in 2 black kids are born into poverty. Public assistance programs - already receiving a bare pittance - are slashed left and right, while discretionary spending for our global genocide machine continues to balloon.
I'm sick of typing.
American soldiers are war criminals and even discounting the rampant unjustifiable murder abroad, do nothing but destroy the people in this country from within as well.
Soldiers are not heroes. Soldiers do not "serve this country." Soldiers are parasites and bigots and cold-blooded killers of the innocent.
No one should be proud of the troops and no troops should be proud. You should all be deeply fucking ashamed.
In regards to your comment about how having angel babies being annoying and that everyone has a miscarriage:
You're stupid, heartless, and a miscarriage isn't a trend.
It's a very painful thing.
Imagine a woman, who has a very hard time becoming pregnant, finally does and miscarried. Doubt you'd have the guts to say that to her, "oh everyone has one lol it's totally okay"
Doubt you'd do a lot of things but ya know let's not get started on that.
It's disgusting to see a "mother" mock such a tragic thing.
What I find more disgusting than what she said about angel babies was her profile. It makes me feel like she is a manipulating bitch that tries to get the daddy to prison, so she's already making a living hell for the baby. I'm saying this as someone who had to grow up without a dad ever since I was 9 because my mom was jealous for nothing and kicked him out of both the house and my life.
My mom had two miscarriages after me. My sister had one too. She's pregnant again though, and due in another two weeks. It's not an easy thing to go through as a relative, so I can't even imagine how the mom would feel. If she had one, God forbid, would she be able to just turn around to someone and say "oh i don't really mind, it happens to everyone"? She's disgusting for saying what she said.
By now you'll probably have seen Elliot Rodger's "justification" in video and written manifesto for his spree killing. If you haven't, it can be summed up like this-
"Boo hoo I am the perfect gentleman, and the fact that I cannot get laid when I am so nice and perfect and well-bred (while other people who are even UGLY or BLACK get sex) means that women must be EVIL!!"
It would be a laughable pile of crap if the little dingleberry hadn't just killed people. As it is, it's just a tragic pile of crap. However I need to stress that there are people regularly writing journals on VF who are saying much the same things. And these people need to have a few stone-cold facts wrapped up like a newspaper and then be used to battered them about the head with. Here they are-
1- Nobody has any right to get laid.
2- Nobody can retain any shred of dignity when claiming they have any sort of right to get laid.
3- It is scientifically impossible to claim it's the rest of society's, or a whole sex en mass', fault that you cannot get laid without looking like there's something catastrophically wrong with your personality.
4- If you are a "nice guy" implying it's someone else's fault that you can't get laid, you are not as nice as you think you are.
5- If you can't get laid it's almost certainly down to your own behaviours, and behaviours can be changed if getting laid is as important as you seem to think. So what's stopping you?
6- If you think Elliot Rodger makes any kind of sense at all, make no further attempts to have sex- because even in the best-case scenario you'll still get sued for damages by the gene pool.
Another journal rant, I know – but if wasn’t for some of the total arseholery that seems to be going on (latest VF in the news journal – I blame you) I wouldn’t have the urge to broadcast my opinion as though it actually matters.
I am sick and tired of people passing ridiculous judgements on adult relationships with age gaps. Key word here : adult. For those of you who need clarification on the matter, I am talking about two (or more, if that’s what floats your boat) people who are over age (18 in most parts of the western world) being in a perfectly consensual, sexual relationship. I am not talking about minors, I’m talking about grown-ups.
I’m tired of people throwing around the word “paedophile” as though it even applies to these relationships. Not only is this an insult to all of the victims of genuine paedophilia, making a joke of all the hard work that goes in to catching these sickening offenders but it also does all sorts of damage to the individuals who happen to be in a perfectly legal and happy relationship. It’s disturbing that some people are so cruel and careless that they’d stick a potentially life-destroying label on an innocent person, purely because they can’t seem to handle the fact that others can be attracted to older or younger adults than themselves.
I’m tired of hearing people lecture on what is an “acceptable” age gap, when (to be blunt) many of these people seem to lack the necessary life-experience to be able to judge. Where do these numbers come from? Seriously? ”Oh he’s a really nice guy, really sweet, really charming, shame he’s born in November instead of September – he’s just too old for me. If he’d been born two months earlier, we could’ve been together”. Ridiculous. By the age of 18 (at least within Europe and parts of the States too) the law states that you are able to buy tobacco, cigarettes, alcohol, you’re able to drive, have children, get a mortgage and even go to war – if the general consensus is that 18 is a good age for people to be able to make such life-altering decisions (even laying down their lives to serve their homeland) then why do we condemn an 18+ year old for deciding what other adult they want to fuck?
”Eww, but he’s 43.. that’s creepy”
Newsflash : when a man reaches his 40th Birthday, he doesn’t automatically become sexually predatory. Nor is it in any way accurate to assume that a younger, adult girlfriend is automatically a victim. This kind of thinking is ridiculous, perpetuated by ridiculous and inaccurate stereotypes.
Sure, I get it – everyone is attracted to different people, and perhaps an older chap/lass isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but that doesn’t put anyone in the position to judge others on their decisions involving a relationship. You don’t see a shudder when someone casually remarks they’re only attracted to redheads. Why is this any different?
However for arguments sake (and without intending to generalize at all) If I were to look back through the rather vile, “creepy” inbox messages and picture comments I have received, I guarantee that a good, solid 90% of them have come from someone under 30.
I don’t doubt that there are some sinister types in the 35+ age bracket, but that doesn’t mean that everyone 35+ is automatically a creeper (in fact I find this both men and women within this age bracket can be really excellent company). At the same time it doesn’t mean that those below this bracket are any less capable of being sexually predatory.
[On a side note I find it almost painfully hypocritical when someone is condemning a 21 year old together with a 44 year old in one thread, whilst fawning over photos of Richard Kruspe (46) or Johnny Depp (50) in another. Of course it’s all very well saying “but that’s only fantasy”, yet many would leap at the chance of a date with their 40+ poster-boy of choice.]
Either way, if you’re one of these types who are more than happy to point the finger at an adult, age-gap relationship and cry “creeper” before getting to know the couple at all, please turn to the nearest person and ask them to help you off that high-horse you seem to have found yourself on before you embarrass yourself further.
Age Gaps in Adult Relationships

I think this is also a cultural thing.Over here (The Netherlands) it's quite accepted if a relationship consists of a 'minor' and an 'adult'.My first boyfriend was 25 when I was 15, nobody called him a paedophile. This age difference lasted while I got older. It's such an subjective matter.

I agree with you. But the main problem is we live in a society of Heat magazine etc which have created a voyeuristic mindset where it seems everyone has assumed the right of judgement over everyone around them. I mean people really need to start looking at their own lives and actions.
