Admin's FJ Stats Copypasta:

What FJ hosting costs each month:

-FJ maxes out 2 gbps a second connection and push 10 high end xeon servers to their limits. I have 1000-2000 connections per second and random people constantly trying to DDOS the site, hit max connection limit and bring it down.
-The comments mysql table alone is 60 gb. Media storage is about 2 tb.
-70,000 comments per day posted on the site. About 20,000-30,000 images uploaded per day. 11,000,000 impressions according to analytics.
FJ uses the cheapest european bandwidth that costs half as much as american bandwidth and 4x cheaper then amazon cloud hosting.
-All of this alone costs $10,000 a month on the cheapest host, leaseweb, that sells bulk bandwidth and servers to large sites.
- If FJ members could help pay this bill each month that would be awesome. If you can't afford to donate, then upload funny content and give it a detailed short description and tag.

FJ Site Stats:
Who votes each day?
- Average 10,500 different users, maybe 1,000 anonymous
Who comments each day?
- About 7,000 different users, 1,000 anonymous
Impressions?
- About 11 million day, 400,000 unique
Shouldn't all this make a lot of money?
- No. I've tried every major ad network and the CPM is about 1 cent per 1,000 visitors. Users are too young or poor to make money from ads on. On one major network I sent a full day's traffic and only made two dollars. I'm not joking.
The only profitable thing is malware or very annoying ads like adfly. I don't want to do that.
Then how did FJ survive before? I used adsense and other advertisers but they kicked me because users spammed porn in order to "rebel" and get the site shut down.

Donate option coming soon.

I'm fairly sure FJ won't shut down, but on the off chance it does....


All of you are a bunch of wonderful faggots.

Don't worry if it does shutdown more than likely you can find us on 4chan or the shutdown will invoke a wave of donations to admin and we will be back up for some time after.

It's not that the majority of the people are assholes, it's just that the assholes are usually way more vocal in the comment section.

#337 to #16 - mrdrprofbraeden ONLINE (01/13/2014) [-]
Except not one person on this site actually thinks they are an asshole but rather they like to think the site's full of assholes and not for the weak minded/emotional type because it makes them feel superior in a way.

inb4 someone claiming they think they are an asshole because they told that person off that one time and made a 9/11 joke
You know deep down it's true

User avatar #433 to #16 - moldybreadcrumb (01/13/2014) [-]
In an odd way, i agree and i like it.
I come here every day not to see the content on the front page but the posts in it.
It's interesting how the different type of content brings out both different groups of people, but different sides of people altogether.
I like to see those different sides, regardless of how cruel or ass-holeish they can be at times.

Don't think you've seen the movie/read the book. Basically, they're more or less prisoners, often fairly violent (It's been a while, but I think i remember some kid bashing in somebody's head with a shovel). It's a joke.

I'll be completely honest. As much as we call like to be assholes, call each other fags, say stupid **** over stupid **** , etc., I love all of you. The entire FJ community is like a family to me, and I think we all know that deep down. You all make me happy inside. So if this site actually does end up shutting down, remember I love you all.

Gentlemen.

Amidst all this talk of FJ shutting down, and myself being someone who barely invested in this site, I still find myself torn. For it was all of you that made me laugh. The posters, the commenters, the OP's sucking dick. Even the administrators and moderators often pitched in for a good laugh. Either by being the butt end of the joke, or being the joke itself. But what we shared in common was a hearty belly laugh. I've seen Turtles come and go. Morbid pass into a ghost town and Funny be established as an actual channel. I have seen the whining of it's users, the drama that ensued with every rule enforcement, but through it all and most importantly; you all made me smile.

And though this may be the biggest pile of trash along the vast landscape of the internet, it's funny how a piece of junk like this can quickly transit from a way to pass the time to a community of irrational hatred and in-fighting. And where I'm pretty sure some of you may pass as clinically insane, you are brothers by any other name. And although we may lack any relation, there is no other place quite as despicably horrid as here. And nowhere where such a genuine disgusting sense of humor can be uttered freely, and be met with hearty laughter above all else.

Gentlemen,
It has been my distinct pleasure posting with you.
May the genitals of your preferred gender bestow themselves upon your lap, and good fortune ever be with you.

If we are mark'd to die, we are enough
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God's will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.

FunnyJunk has consistently been an escape from my ****** personal life for years.

If it were to shut down..

We lived as faggots on FunnyJunk.

But seriously.. I don't want that to happen..
