Our interview with Dr. K
By - Jisifus
LSF in a nutshell in this comment section.
Woah, I didn't know this happened. Good stuff mods. This completely changed my perception of you guys.
In the beginning you guys mention how little appreciation there is, so here's my appreciation:
I was banned a long time ago for a stupid joke, which was fair. But after reaching out to you guys a few months later, I was surprised you guys actually unbanned me. The situation was fairly nuanced, so I imagine someone actually took the time to go back to the comment and took my words into consideration in the unban request. Thanks for that!
I was unbanned recently as well and had already tried before so I'd also like to say thank you mods 🙂👍
You're welcome, thanks for sharing your thoughts. Glad you enjoyed the interview
> This completely changed my perception of you guys.
Can't wait to get downvoted and insulted for this, but: Reddit has a hate-boner for mods. Not just this sub, but reddit overall. It's one of the most embarrassing things about this place, quite frankly.
Theres been a lot of sour grapes that ruined it for the rest of us, but we are trying to improve this sub and compared to a year ago I'd say its gotten way better.
Why is that dude wearing a mask in his room
Yeah I figured this was it and I get it, I'm private too! But then I thought why would he even be on cam then?
Being able to see the person you're talking to is good for a proper conversation, but they don't necessarily want to show their actual face to thousands of people I'd guess.
Yeah you'd still get some body language even with their face covered vs no cam at all
Yeah its just the right amount of privacy imo, you get to barely sacrifice the human/personal interaction while making it so that only the people who already know you will recognise you off of the footage.
With that said youre never entirely safe but I think there’s a big difference there.
You have to do more than that so people don't identify you...
Rather than watching and enjoying some good content (or simply ignore it), people have to complain and act edgy in the comments.
been here long?
I mean the mods pinned it, it's not like it naturally rose to the top of the page
> it's not like it naturally rose to the top of the page
Fits right in with all the content that fly straight to the top of LSF because the streamer browse LSF on stream daily.
STOP NOT ENJOYING THIS CONTENT
This was very emotional to watch.
Thanks for cleaning our park :)
Do you guys have to be this mean, even on a mental health-related topic? Like, I know that moderators are the butt of the joke in most subreddits but jeez.
It's a good thing that mod leadership in this sub has changed significantly, because I can imagine the hilarity if this stream had been with degens like Chanman, Gengar, Raptor, and imNATT.
Let's be real, none of those people mentioned had the sack to on a stream like this.
To be fair, Gengar would've, the crazy fat fuck. I remember him pinning a stream of himself shirtless in all of his 500 pound glory.
The rest of those guys were absolute garbage people, particularly imNATT and Raptor. Gengar was just kind of a dumbass memelord.
Gengar and Raptor singlehandedly drove this sub into the ground 3-4 years ago. Shit moderation, pinning twitter posts from their personal accounts, a mirror bot that didn't work for over a year. Hell, Gengar banned me for 999 days on LSF years ago because I called him out on another subreddit. I could only appeal the rage ban once his dumbass got removed from the mod team.
wasn't chanman the guy who hosted unfiltered?
yea but they take it a bit too far sometimes. can't even say the c word anymore. did they even think about australians?
You mean the guys who made LSF what it is?
I love how you say that like it’s a defense against their character or something. If anything, it’s more to the pile. This place has been a shithole for years.
People came here because it was a shithole. Uncensored real content. r/Twitch was where you could find PG13 clips and plenty alt subs trying to "not be toxic" were made.
You can pretend all you want but people are drawn to toxicity and content, not curated bullshit.
Cx in the chat.
I'm not pretending anything. I don't really care if degens like you are drawn to other degens and it became a big community. I'm calling them what they are.
It's also fucking hilarious that you think you got "uncensored, real content" with those guys. Do you know how much content curating they did against narratives that they don't like? Do you know how many different times they nuked discussion entirely when they'd get called out on issues?
It's not censoring if it's the stuff you don't like that gets removed. /s
Yeah, they carefully scrubbed any criticism so Cx gremlins like this kid didn’t even know that there was censorship going on as long as they got to shitpost.
You could search about this subreddit on any drama meta sub and find the times they pulled shit. There’s a reason why they’re no longer here.
The current mod team is definitely a lot better than the old one.
You are. This sub was born out of low censorship and just allowing people to post "toxic" comments. Forced positivity never leads to an interesting community.
I am what, exactly? This sub was born out of /r/livestreamfails closing down due to toxicity and the head mod not wanting to deal with it, actually, and you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.
The fact that you were able to post degenerate bullshit doesn’t mean that there was low censorship. They censored plenty. Literally just search about the subreddit on any meta sub.
All you can do is call other people degenerates and toxic while being the paragon of virtue yourself lmao.
Mods didn't want to deal with it cause they didn't feel like being an unpaid janitor was worth it as should any normal human being that doesn't want to abuse mod powers. Mod positions are inherently catch22.
You're completely talking out of your ass. Zero idea what you're talking about.
Again, search LSF on any meta sub. [Here's a starting point for you since I can't post links.](https://imgur.com/IDIafLd) It's hilarious that you came with this "Cx in the chat" bullshit defending the old mod team when that was one of their biggest instances of censorship. They were banning people who were posting about it *outside of this sub*.
Where is Gengar? KKonaW
too fat to move
Chasing IRL streamers for clout? Idk
That man can't chase anything.
I haven’t watched this but it must be tough to moderate such a degen sub. Thank you for everything
I don't think I am going to watch this but it takes courage to put yourself on a stream like this.
good job mods, i liked the interview. fk the other commenters
Glad you liked the interview
I'm entertained by the removed comments
Mods who aren’t pussies and actually go on a stream. That’s what I want from my community. Keep it up. But please don’t ban the cuck lords and losers in the comments. I still need them for my entertainment.
Any clippers and shippers? Highlights? :P
Oh yeah I've tried all of that as well being the creator of https://iceposeidon.live back in the day (both viewers and streamers constantly contacting you with ridiculous stuff) and moderated some big communities too. People have no idea how crazy it is behind the scenes sometimes. It can affect you really hard personally.
I tried putting together a few timestamps but I realized we were all over the place regarding topics. Very sorry!
Nah it's all good :) Thanks anyway.
Interesting subjects, i particularly liked the conversation that started around 57 minutes in.
Hearing what some of the older mods have to deal with was pretty scary.
Do you guys feel this helps you moving forward?
Who's the one with the Bond villain hairline on the top right?
For every visible comment that you think is a personal attack, there's hundreds of removed comments that are worse than anything you could ever imagine. I'm sorry you don't see all the vile shit we remove, but that would kinda defeat the point.
Don't you have a [charity](https://i.imgur.com/dTFrcsh.png) you can hate on?
You're literally one of the most toxic motherfuckers we've ever had on this sub. For every bullshit comment like this you leave there's dozens where you post exactly what you think we "don't remove". Kindly get the fuck off our subreddit. Go touch grass or create some more accounts to spam 600 comments in half a year with, you sad, psychotic freak. Thanks for proving literally every point anyone made in the VOD you didn't watch.
u/ivotekick LOL holy shit dude
Holy shit this is amazing. Didn't even realize that you were linking comments from the user you're replying to till I reread it.
Are these even that bad? You're calling him one of the most toxic people on the subreddit because he called someone a retard, you calling him a psychotic freak who should touch grass is just as bad, and actively taking screenshots of every post he specifically makes as you delete them is creepy. And for all 600 comments he posted, it appears that you were there to take the time to delete them all too, so you spend just as much time here, as he does.
How the fuck is removing 600 toxic comments just as bad as posting them? If you think i was nitpicking with the screenshots, don't worry. There's plenty more. Like 150. These are just random ones I picked while scrolling through.
Me taking screenshots of posts would be kinda creepy if i was some random dude in some random argument, but this guy has been on our ass for months. Me showing you stuff I personally removed in the last few weeks isn't creepy, it's due diligence related to his inane initial claim of us not removing shit, when, in fact, we removed his shit.
These are just random ones I picked while scrolling COPIUM
You're an Internet janitor, this isn't your job, you spend more time here than he does. The most toxic thing he said in those pictures was calling someone a retard which isn't bad at all. You're as degenerate as he is
daily downvote pogchamp
how do i know this guy is stupid? he watches bigbrother
FYI, removing a comment doesn't entail typing "Hello dear reddit server please kindly delete this comment thank you very much" into a CLI. Just thought I'd let you know since i don't understand how else you think removing a comment takes just as long as writing it. Also lol at thinking straight up calling someone a retard and degenerate is completely unproblematic. You'd fit right in this sub, about a year ago.
Do you need a hug?
Internet Janitor describes reddit mods perfectly. Janitors don't take themselves as seriously though.
Kinda WeirdChamp to pull out a folder of logs that you have on someone and call them a "toxic motherfucker" and "sad, psychotic freak" in the comments of a post all about mental health and moderation of LSF. You're literally personally attacking this guy--justified or not idk the context-- which is against the subreddit rules.
It just kinda makes the VOD, which I watched until the end, all pretty meaningless. I know you're just a human too, but come on, a personal attack in this comment section is extremely ironic.
You're right, it's hypocritical and I wouldn't word it like that if I could go back. I won't indulge you on discussing whether or not I think it's justified, but I also talked a lot about proportionality during the interview, and you'll just have to believe me that anything I could've said in that comment would've even been remotely proportional to the amount of toxic shit this guy has posted on the sub over time.
And just for clarity, like I told someone else, i don't actually have a folder or a file on this guy just waiting to be dumped, everything i posted was random examples from the last few weeks.
I'll try to do better next time and i appreciate your viewpoint.
Plus, you can't reason with toxic people. You should know from experience by now :P You will never "win" the argument. Even when you do "win" you'll lose because of your time and energy spent hehe.
You seem kinda mad go get real job actual online noob ROFL
Bitch, I'm 4 semesters into a bachelor's degree, what do you do all day other than creating new reddit accounts and playing rust? Fuck outta here 4 week 4 comments Andy. At least use your main account if you're gonna talk shit about someone's personal life
Oh shit guys, he's a sophomore in college! PepeLaugh internet janitor
omegalul you really pogchamped that guy into a sadge
How do you guys get in touch with Dr K I've been trying to get ahold of him for almost a year now because I've had a traumatic brain injury and I stream but he obviously gets so many messages and emails a day there's no way he sees anything I send him or when I apply.
You could try and message one of the healthy gamer staff on their discord server
Why pin this? I would try to hide it as much as possible if I were a janny.
Yeah makes sense to accept an invitation to talk about our feelings and interests in front of 5k people only to try and hide it afterwards
Don't let the brain worms win man.
If people were actually interested in this, it would naturally rise to the top of the sub.
Pinning it gives off a sense that you feel important or need to be given attention when like 99% of the people who browse this sub could not care less about the people who mod it. I wouldn't take it personally, people just don't like mods.
None of us take any of this personally, watch the VOD.
It's not about feeling important or getting attention either. Last year, people gave me and the other former mods a lot of shit for how we ran the sub, way beyond any of the "fuck jannies" garbage below, and I think it's only fair that we get an opportunity to share with people what we've done this last year and how we plan to improve the sub even more. That's what we did in the interview and that's why I think it's relevant to the subreddit as a whole, just like any other moderation announcement.
I don't know why people keep pretending like this is about personal attention or clout. We didn't even have fucking names show up during the interview or plug anything that could even remotely benefit any of us personally.
It's basically a moderation announcement with talking heads. Don't watch it if you don't care, just like with any other moderation announcement.
Appreciate the fact y’all put yourself out there publicly in the first place, doesnt matter what the comment section is saying and i know y’all already understand but know there are people who are interested in the history and background involved in this subreddit and I hope the best in the future of the subreddit. Y’all do a pretty good job and wish for yall to further make it a better place
Thank you very much
no actual reply lmao
Yeah lol. I doubt they'll reply.
I was talking about your reply you dipshit lmao
Who are you?
Not a janny
You do know you're not on 4chan, right?
